Représenté pour la première fois le 23 septembre 1777 à l'Académie Royale de Musique, il s'agit du quatrième opéra de la « période parisienne » de Gluck. C'est à l'occasion de la représentation de cet opéra que la querelle entre gluckistes et piccinnistes éclata. (Fétis, 2683. Hopkinson, 'Bibliography of the Works of Gluck', 45A. RISM A/I/3 G2679). Provenance : Jean-Frédéric-Auguste Lemiere de Corvey (1771-1832), avec petite signature à la plume "J.F.A. Le Miere, rue Grammont n°13".

G.B. Piranesi
Rome, 1777. John Wilton-Ely plate 341The watermark in on the companion print entitled "Avanzo del Tempio della Concordia" but is indistinguishable due to the heavy ink.From the series "Le Antichita Romane"Giovanni Battista Piranesi was one of the leading figures in the development of the neoclassical style in the late 18th Century. As architect, archaeologist, artist, designer, collector, and antiquities dealer, he produced a series of etchings and engravings depicting the glories of ancient Rome. These fine prints served as source material for other architects and designers. He was born in Venice on the 4th October 1720. The son of a stone-mason, he was educated as an architect under his maternal uncle Matto Lucchesi and under Carlo Zucchi. In 1740 Piranesi left Venice for Rome, there he studied etching under Giuseppe Vasi. He appears to have had little success in these early years in Rome and as his father was unable to continue his allowance returned to Venice in 1744. He was soon, however, encouraged to return to Rome by Giuseppe Wagner, a successful engraver and publisher of Venice. This time he achieved success, and a constant series of works, illustrating architecture and antiquities, issued from his studio until his death in 1778. His output in etched plates is enormous (about 1000 numbers in all). While he achieved a work of magnitude in pictorial records of Roman monuments of antiquity and of the Renaissance, and gave immense archæological, antiquarian, and topographical value to this work, the artistic quality always predominates. He was fond of peopling his ruin … [Click Below for Full Description]

In his study of the 18th-century training texts of the British Army, Fit for Service, Houlding is dismissive of Simes's merits as an a … [Click Below for Full Description]

Première édition de ce compte rendu sur l'Empire espagnol du Pérou, basé sur les écrits de Bartolomeo de Las Casa et Garcilasso de la Vega. Ce livre rend hommage à Las Casas, et tout comme l'oeuvre du dominicain espagnol, dénonçe la cruauté et les exactions des espagnols, crimes provoqués notamment, selon l'auteur, par le fanatisme religieux. Marmontel, écrivain prolifique et protégé de Voltaire, écrivit cet ouvrage en réponse à la censure qu'il eut à subir de la part de la Sorbonne, suite à la publication d'un roman en 1767, ''Bélissaire'', dans lequel un chapitre pronaît la tolérance religieuse.

Laurentium Basilium, Venetiis (Venice), 1777. Octavo. XXXII, 755, [1]pp. Uncut. Modern 3/4 leather over brown cloth with gold lettering on spine. Printer's device on title page. In this work, Bernard Lamy, the renowned French Oratorian mathematician and theologian, calls in question the historical character of the book of Tobias and book of Judith, and maintains that even after the Council of Trent a difference of authority should be recognized between the proto-canonical and deutero-canonical books of the Bible. This study examines also such subjects as the history of the Hebrews and the Holy Land, a description of the Tabernacle and Temple, a history of the scriptures, and a great many tangential matters like the plants, animals, minerals, diseases, and customs mentioned in the Bible. This book is exquisitely illustrated with 12 folding engravings. Very minor and sporadic foxing throughout. Text in Latin. Binding in overall very good, interior in good+ to very good condition.

QUARLES, Francis
Printed and sold by H. Trapp, London 1777 - [xii] 9-289 [24 pp. advertisements] i plus plates not counted in the pagination 12mo. rebound in full brown morocco, gilt-lettered spine, all edges gilt, marbled endpapers. Profusely illustrated with wonderful wood cuts, title page plus ca. 94 additional full page plates. Francis Quarles (1592Ð1644) was an English poet descended from an old Essex family, and educated first at Cambridge and then at Oxford. Upon completing those studies he went to Lincoln Inn to study and practice law.Though not an ardent royalist, he wrote pamphlets during the Commonwealth upholding the divine right of kings. Enchiridion (1640) is his collection of prose aphorisms.In the 1630's he went back to Essex and began work on what was to become his best-known and most popular workÑhis best-selling Emblems (1635), lavishly-illustrated and containing five books of meditative verse. The poems are introduced by a scriptural motto, then a commentary based on quotations from various sources, and at the end closure is achieved with a short didactic epigram. The visual impact is supplied by the centre-piece, the emblem itself. Quarles says that "an emblem is but a short parable," and the verse puts the visual into the mental. The words and pictures, complementing each other, may then be said to have a double impact upon the reader. Very slight rubbing of spine extremities, bookplate on front paste-down, pictorial clipping pasted to verso of first preliminary, frontispiece repaired on recto not affecting plate, F4 (pp. 67-68) torn at lower right with some loss of te … [Click Below for Full Description]

Faden, William, and Bernard Ratzer:
London: Wm. Faden, Dec. 1, 1777.. Copper-engraved map. Sheet size: 32 x 24 inches. In good condition. The first state of one of the finest and most celebrated maps of New Jersey, made during the Revolutionary War. This elegant composition depicts New Jersey in finely engraved detail at a large scale of seven miles to an inch. The map was the grandest representation of the state made up to that time, taking in the entire breadth of the state, as well as the Hudson Valley, most of Long Island, eastern Pennsylvania, and all of Delaware Bay. It captures the state's rich topography, including the Jersey Highlands and the Palisades in the north and the broad Pine Barrens and coastal marshes in the south. The county divisions, major roads and towns are all carefully depicted, indicating that New Jersey was, by the standards of the time, heavily populated, having over 120,000 inhabitants. Faden based his rendering of the state largely on the manuscript works of Bernard Ratzer, a British military surveyor most famous for his map of New York City. Ratzer's rendezvous with New Jersey cartography stemmed from the resolution of the bitter boundary dispute between that state and New York that had raged for over a century. In 1764, George III charged Samuel Holland and William De Brahm with settling the boundary, and their demarcation was finally surveyed by Ratzer in 1769. Ratzer's line is noted on the map as "The boundary settled by commissioners in 1769." Two of Ratzer's New Jersey manuscripts, one dealing with the boundary question, and another featuring Monmouth and O … [Click Below for Full Description]

G.B. Piranesi
1777. John Wilton-Ely plate 342The watermark is on the companion print entitled \"Veduta degli avanzi appartenenti alla Casa Aurea di Nerone\" and is a fleur-de-lis but one is unable to determine precisely which version of the watermark it is.From the series \"Le Antichita Romane\"Giovanni Battista Piranesi was one of the leading figures in the development of the neoclassical style in the late 18th Century. As architect, archaeologist, artist, designer, collector, and antiquities dealer, he produced a series of etchings and engravings depicting the glories of ancient Rome. These fine prints served as source material for other architects and designers. He was born in Venice on the 4th October 1720. The son of a stone-mason, he was educated as an architect under his maternal uncle Matto Lucchesi and under Carlo Zucchi. In 1740 Piranesi left Venice for Rome, there he studied etching under Giuseppe Vasi. He appears to have had little success in these early years in Rome and as his father was unable to continue his allowance returned to Venice in 1744. He was soon, however, encouraged to return to Rome by Giuseppe Wagner, a successful engraver and publisher of Venice. This time he achieved success, and a constant series of works, illustrating architecture and antiquities, issued from his studio until his death in 1778. His output in etched plates is enormous (about 1000 numbers in all). While he achieved a work of magnitude in pictorial records of Roman monuments of antiquity and of the Renaissance, and gave immense archæological, antiquarian, and topographical value to this wor … [Click Below for Full Description]
