Hawkes, W.:
London: R. Sayer & J. Bennett, Jan. 1st, 1777.. Copper-engraved map by J. Barber, with original outline color, on laid paper watermarked "LVG." Sheet size: 24 5/8 x 19 1/2 inches. An extremely rare map, a broadside that captures the dramatic events that were unfolding in the New York theatre of the Revolutionary War. This exceptionally rare map is a highly important historical document of Britain's New York campaign, conducted in 1776, the first full year of the Revolutionary War. It was printed as a broadside to inform the British public about the exciting news from across the Atlantic. The survival rate of broadsides is extremely low, and this example is exceptional in that it has survived in remarkably excellent condition. This work would have been one of the most effective communication tools of the time, as it pictorially represented the geography of the theatre of events, and explained the principal aspects of the conflict in a clear and concise manner. The present example is the third of four issues of this map, and as it deals with a story in progress, each new edition was updated from the former. The finely engraved map is centered on the city of New York, located on the southern tip of Manhattan Island. A series of concentric circles, each at five mile intervals, radiate from this epicenter. The map embraces the area as far north as the Tappan Zee, as far south as the Shrewsbury River in Monmouth County, New Jersey, as far west as Parsippany, New Jersey, and as far east as Hampstead, Long Island. Outlined beautifully in original color, the map features all maj … [Click Below for Full Description]

PERGOLESI, Michele Angelo (d. 1801)
Published By the Author, London 1777-1792 - Broadsheet folio (550 x 394 mm.). 67 etched plates by and after Pergolesi, numbered 1-66 (two plates numbered 56), containing designs numbered irregularly 1-435, a number of the plates printed in sepia or bistre. Without title or text, as published. Central medallions of plates 20, 30, 40 and 55 signed by Francesco Bartolozzi after G. B. Cipriani; central medallion portrait of the duke of Northumberland on plate 56[b] signed by Ignatius Joseph Van den Berghe after Pierre Violet. (A few minor marginal repairs to the plates in Part 1.) Stab-stitched in the 13 original parts, in original salmon wrappers, upper covers each with the part number written in black crayon in a large contemporary hand (half of lower wrapper to part 1 restored, a few other small repairs to wrappers, sewing renewed), housed in a morocco-backed folding box. First edition of this splendid collection of neo-classical designs for every conceivable type of ornament: "ceilings, doors, wall panels, silverware, urns and vases, marquetry, etc. - interspersed with arabesques and grotesques" (Millard). A veritable encyclopedia of neo-classical ornament, the plates were the work of an otherwise little-known Italian artist, who was hired in Italy ca. 1760-1763 by the brothers James and Robert Adams as an assistant for their architectural projects. Although Pergolesi's only firmly documented work was at Syon House in Middlesex, where he was paid for painting the 62 pilasters in the Long Gallery, as part of Robert Adam's famous remodeling of the house for the First Duke of … [Click Below for Full Description]

GESSNER (Salomon)
A Zuric chez l'Auteur, 1777. 2 volumes. Large 4to, 257 x 195 mms., pp. [xvi], 184; [3], 4 - 190, engraved title-page in each volume, separate engraved title-page in volume 1 for Contes Moraux, list of subscribers in volume 1, 10 full-page engraved plates in each volume, engraved head- and tail-pieces (39 in all) for each tale or section, early 19th century half calf, spotted boards (a little worn). A fine set, with very fresh impressions of the (often erotic) plates. This is certainly one of the most attractive editions of Gessner's works, even in a French translation. Gessner was responsible for choosing the illustrations, and the erotic overtones of many of the engravings perhaps enjoyed a more robust reception in this French translation. Copac locates a copy at the NLS in these islands, and there appear to be numerous copies in North America and Europe.

Tielcke Johann Gottlieb
Barthel, Freyberg en Saxe, 1777. In 4° antico, mm 254 x 205, pagg. (1b), (4), 110, (5), (1b), (1), 102, (1b) con 20 bellissime tavole (alcune a colori) ripiegate e incise su rame raffiguranti schemi di battaglia; leg. mezza pelle moderna, titoli oro e nervi al dorso. L'Autore (1731-1787) fu scrittore e militare tedesco e prese parte personalmente alla Guerra dei sette anni. Di questa prima traduzione francese fu stampata solo la Premiere partie, mentre l'opera originale tedesca consta di 6 volumi (stampati dal 1776 al 1786). Legato con un'altra opera, scritta da David Ernst Godow: Des relations & Plans des batailles & combats de la guerre de 1756 à 1763, en Allemagne, Dresde, aux dépends de l'éditeur, 1778. Premiere partie, qui contient toutes les actions arrivées pendant les deux Campagnes, 1756 & 1757. Favoir, celle de Lowositz, Reichenberg, Praag, Kolin, Hastenbeck, Gros , Moys, Rosbach, Breslau, Leuthen. Pagine con bruniture e macchia a una tavola ma nel complesso buon esemplare. Non comune, in particolare questa seconda opera, non citata dalle bibliografie consultate. Nessuna notizia neanche sull'Autore, che probabilmente prese parte in prima persona alla guerra, come il Tielcke. Queste due opere furono giustamente legate insieme, per l'analogia dell'argomento trattato e per il fatto che solo la prima parte di entrambe fu tradotta in francese.

Prima edizione del commento del Genovesi, stampata da Terres a otto anni dalla morte dell'autore. Una traduzione dello Spirito delle leggi era uscita parzialmente ad opera di Mecatti nel 1750, ma l'operazione era stata interrotta dalla censura. Terres, che possedeva il manoscritto del Genovesi, nel 1777 riuscì ad ottenere il permesso di stampa dell'opera commentata, con l'aggiunta di operette ad essa relative quali l'elogio di D'Alembert ad opera di Montesquieu, la Difesa dello Spirito delle leggi di J. Fontane de la Roche, il Ringraziamento sincero attribuito a Voltaire etc.

The map depicts the English colonies extending to the Alleghenies, showing a vast Louisiana as far west as the far side of the Mississippi. "Covers the area east of the Mississippi River from James Bay to the Gulf of Mexico. Shows states, towns and cities, Indian villages and tribal territory, routes of navigation along the southern coast and relief" (Sellers and Van Ee).A large inset shows Florida south of St. Augustine, as well as the Bahamas, Cuba, Hispaniola and Jamaica. A hachured border line shows the British colonies extending only to the Appalachians. Cartographically, Imbert's map follows the mappings by other French cartographers of the 18th century, including De L'Isle, d'Anville and Brion de la Tour.Imbert's map would be reissued by Jean-Baptiste Eliot in 1783, that edition being one of the first maps issued following the provisional Treaty of Peace.

Lichtenberg, Georg Christoph, Schriftsteller (1742-1799).
O. O., [1777].. 4 SS. auf Doppelblatt. 4to. Mit drei Federzeichnungen.. Arbeitsmanuskript des ersten Teils seiner berühmten Satire auf Lavaters damals in Erscheinung begriffene "Physiognomischen Fragmente zur Beförderung der Menschenkenntnis und Menschenliebe" (1775-1778), die europaweit Furore machten. Lichtenberg parodiert meisterhaft Lavaters larmoyante Art, seine zum Teil minimalistischen Darstellungen von Nasenprofilen oder Ohren mit großartigen Charakterattributen zu versehen, die er im Text dann ausführlich erläutert. Die ersten zwei Zeichnungen zeigen zwei "Heroische, kraftvolle" Schwänze, nämlich "Ein Sauschwantz" und "Englischer Doggen Schwantz", die dritte Zeichnung vereinigt die beiden Schwänze in Kameenform. Darunter eine Echtheitsbestätigung von Lichtenbergs Schülers Friedrich Kries (1768-1849): "Daß Vorstehendes des Götting. Lichtenbergs eigene Handschrift ist, kann ich bezeugen. Gotha den 16t Januar 1847. Fr. Kries". Lichtenbergs Göttinger Kollege, der Arzt Ernst Gottfried Baldinger (1738-1804), ließ die Satire 1783 ohne Wissen Lichtenbergs im "Neuen Magazin für Ärzte" (Bd. 5) veröffentlichen. Das vorliegende Manuskript weist einige Abweichungen gegenüber dem Druck auf; auch fehlt im Druck die hübsche Cameo-Vignette am Schluss des Manuskripts. - Geringfügig stockfleckig, kleine Einrisse in der Faltung. Beiliegend der Separatabzug des Erstdrucks, zusammengebunden mit zwei Lichtenberg betreffenden Nummern des "Morgenblatts für gebildete Stände" von 1807 (Halblederband von etwa 1870 mit goldgeprägtem Rückenschildchen; Innendeckel mit dem Exlibris Eduard Griseba … [Click Below for Full Description]

Jean Jacques Barthélémy (1716-1795) fut d'abord un ecclésiastique avant d'être un archéologue, un littérateur et un numismate. Avant de publier le célèbre voyage d'Anacharsis, il se fit connaître par de nombreuses recherches érudites qu'il s'est employé à rendre accessible à un public plus large, non seulement dans Anacharsis, mais également dans cet opuscule sur la musique grecque, dans lequel on trouve un athénien dialoguant avec un disciple de Platon.

[Continental Congress]:
Philadelphia & York-town. 1777-1778.. Two volumes. [2],310,[12]; [2],520,[27]pp. Modern half morocco and marbled boards, spine gilt. Light foxing and soiling. Very good. Untrimmed. A nice set of the Journals of the Continental Congress for the first two years. The first volume was published by Robert Aitken in Philadelphia, and was the first collected set of the Journals. These had been published previously in two separate volumes (both of extreme rarity) in 1774 and 1776. This collected issue became the first volume of the series, which continued until the end of the Confederacy and the adoption of the Federal Constitution in 1788. The volume contains a wealth of the most important documents of the Revolutionary period, with all of the proceedings of the first, and part of the second, Continental Congress for 1774 and 1775. Rare in such nice condition and especially so with the twelve pages of index. The second volume was published by John Dunlap in York, and is one of the rarest of the series issued from 1774 to 1788, with a peculiar and romantic publication history. Textually it covers the exciting events of 1776, culminating with the Declaration of Independence on July 4, an early printing of which appears here, as well as all of the other actions of Congress for the year. It is thus a vital document in the history of American independence and the American Revolution. Through the middle of 1777 the printer of the Journals of Congress was Robert Aitken of Philadelphia. In 1777 he published the first issue of the Journals for 1776, under his own imprint. This was complete … [Click Below for Full Description]
