Zayn-Al-Din, Shaikh (fl. 1777-1782)

In 1774, Sir Elijah was appointed the first Chief Justice in Bengal, as a result of the new Regulating Act which required the establishment of law courts in Calcutta. While he set about collecting Indian and Persian manuscripts and miniatures, his wife Mary, bound to the home by family duties and frequent childbirth, established a menagerie in the grounds of their Calcutta house. Recognizing a profound level of talent in several Indian artists, she employed at least three to paint the striking, exotic flora and fauna in her garden. Foremost among these artists were Shaikh Zayn-al-Din (fl. 1777-1782) and Ram Das (fl. 1777-1782). Both artists were trained in the Mughal tradition of the Persian court painters, and their work demonstrates outstanding talent for capturing detail and color. . Book.

ADAM, After Robert (1728-1792) and James ADAM (d.1794)
London: 1777. Copper engraving. Engraved by T. Morris. In excellent condition with the exception of a small area of foxing in the sheet.17 1/4 x 23 5/8 inches. 19 1/4 x 26 1/4 inches. An elegant engraving of the elaborate ceiling in the music room of Sir Watkin Williams Wynn's celebrated house in St. James' Square, London. Robert and his brother James Adam forever changed the face of British architecture by introducing innovative Classical design ideas. From 1754-57, Robert lived in Italy where he had a long productive friendship with Piranesi, which was inspirational for both men. Adam's first book, on Diocletian's palace in Dalmatia, is clearly very like the archaeological investigations Piranesi was making at the same time of similar ruins. Piranesi's friendship and passion for Roman Classicism were seminal influences on Adam, and the greatest single factor, other than his own talent, in the work Adam produced on his return to England. Upon his return, the brothers launched their career by building the Adelphi from the Thames to the Strand in London, which although not a commercial success at the time, included one of London's most cherished buildings, the Adlephi Theatre. Together, the Adam brothers designed and built some of the most famous buildings in England, including such bastions of English architecture as Kenwood House, Keddlestone Manor, and Syon House. To the interiors of their English country houses, the Adams brought wonderful ornamental elements in niches, lunettes, festoons and reliefs.

London: Printed for B.White, J.Robson, P.Elmsly, and G.Robinson, 1777. 2 Volumes. 4to. pp. xviii, [2], 602; 2 p.l., 607. without the errata leaf at the end of Vol. I. folding engraved map (frontis.). An attractive set in contemporary sprinkled calf, neatly rebacked, corners renewed, spines tooled in gilt (Vol. I title-leaf professionally remargined at lower edge & upper outer corner with small repair, marginal repair to GG2-3 affecting part of headline, occasional spotting). First Edition of this important account of Cook s second voyage, which preceded the publication of the official record by some six weeks. The author and his father, Johann Reinhold, served as naturalists on the expedition. While the elder Forster was originally to have written the account, he was forbidden to do so because of a dispute with the Admiralty concerning his emoluments. It is based on his journal and also draws from Cook s own although no acknowledgement is given. Humboldt said that he was indebted to this work more so than to any other for his early love of nature and tropical beauty. On his second, and historically most important voyage, Cook determined that the Terra Australis Incognita , which supposedly lay between New Zealand and South America did not exist, and accomplished the first crossing of the Antarctic Circle. Cook revisited New Zealand, and discovered, or re-explored and charted many of the islands in the Pacific, including Easter Island, the Marquesas, Tahita and the Society Islands, the Tonga Islands, the New Hebrides, and New Caledonia.

BONNET, Louis Marin after Jean Baptiste LE PRINCE
London: F. Vivares in great Newport Street, 1777. Colour-printed mixed method engraving. Printed on laid paper. In excellent condition with the exception of being trimmed within the platemark. Small tear in lower left corner, and another small tear on bottom margin. Image size: 10 9/16 x 8 1/4 inches. A lovely impression of this famous print by Louis-Marin Bonnet, one of the most celebrated masters of French colour-printing. The son of a Parisian stocking manufacturer, Louis-Marin Bonnet (1736-1793) trained with the engravers Louis-Claude LeGrand and Jean-Charles François, the latter the inventor of the chalk-manner technique of printmaking. Throughout his career Bonnet developed Francois's printing technique producing some of the most beautiful prints of the period. Bonnet's chalk-manner prints became immensely popular with collectors seeking images that imitated the subtle effects of drawing, but he also experimented with various forms of colour printing as seen in this charming print of a young lady playing the guitar. During the late 1770s and 1780s, Bonnet's success as a color printmaker was unrivaled and hence he counted among his patrons the wealthiest Parisian collectors of the time. This spectacular print exemplifies the single plate colour printing technique developed in England, but quickly adopted by French engravers. The effect is achieved by inking a single plate with several different colours by using a rag stump, this process is known as a la poupée. These English colour prints became very popular in Paris and threatened to affect the market f … [Klicken Sie unten für eine ausführliche Beschreibung]

SHENSTONE (William)
London: Printed for J. Dodsley, 1777. 3 volumes. Small 8vo, 180 x 125 mms., pp. 332 [333 - 334 Contents]; vii [viii blank], 345 [346 blank], viii, 360, engraved frontispiece and engraved title-page in volumes 1 and 2, engraved tail-piece in volume 1, folding engraved plan of The Leasowes at page 287 in volume 2, attractively bound in contemporary lightly mottled calf, gilt border roll on covers, spine ornately gilt to a bird and cup balanced on urn motif, represent in three separate panels on each spine, red and olive morocco labels; bookplate crudely removed from front paste-down end-paper of each volume, front joint volume 1 slightly cracked, top of spine volume 1 very slightly chipped, upper rear joint volume 2 very slightly chipped, but generally a fine and attractive set, with ornaments that resemble those used by Scott of Edinburgh, with the contemporary autograph of F or T Pope on the top margin of each title-page. Shenstone (1714 - 1763) is little read, or likely to be read, these days, but Samuel Johnson had some praise for some of his poems, concluding his remarks in The Lives of the Poets, by saying, "The general recommendation of Shenstone is easiness and simplicity; his general defect is want of comprehension and variety. Had his mind been better stored with knowledge, whether he could have been great, I know not; he could certainly have been agreeable." [Attributes: Hard Cover]

G.B. Piranesi
1777. John Wilton-Ely plate 46The watermark is a fleur-di-lis but is precisely which one is unknown due to the heavy inkThis plate is from the series "Opere Varie"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 ruins with Callot-like figures, and "like Call … [Klicken Sie unten für eine ausführliche Beschreibung]

Köpenhamn, A. H. Godiche, 1777. 4:o. Grav. porträtt,+ XXVI,+ 183,+ (blank),+ (49) s.+ utvikbar tryckt tabell (paginerad 184). Häftad, oskuren och ouppsprättad i samtida gråpappersomslag. Ur Ericsbergs bibliotek. Bibl. danica III, sp. 32. Fiske 606. Warmholtz 2601 not. Förord av P. F. Suhm. Detta är en senare komplettering till Torfaeus "Series dynastorum et regum Daniæ ..." från 1702. Detta verk trycktes om 1705 med en ny titel: "Universa septentrionis antiqvitates". Enligt Warmholtz ett oumbärligt arbete för utredande av Nordens äldsta historia. Till 1705-års upplaga utlovades en komplettering, vilket dock först här 1777 utgavs av Hannes Finnasson och Jón Jónsson. I P. F. Suhms förord återfinns en redogörelse över verket av Jón Eiriksson. Thormod Torfaeus (1636-1719) var isländsk historiker, och från 1682 historiograf över kungariket Norge. Han föddes utanför Reykjavik och kunde i sin forskning bygga mycket på isländska källor. Hans stora huvudverk var en historia över Norge, "Historia rerum Norvegicarum", som utkom 1711.

GESSNER, Salomon.
Zurich, for the author, 1777. With 2 engr. titles with a small etched vignette, 20 etched plates, and 39 etched vignettes in the text, all by Salomon Gessner. 191 pp.; 194 pp. 4to. Contemp. half calf, with 2 spine labels, spines gilt (repaired, slightly rubbed). Zurich, for the author, 1777-78. Only German quarto edition of the works of Salomon Gessner (1730-1788), only few copies printed. It is considered the finest of all editions, and one of the best illustrated works produced in Switzerland, comparable to the edition of Marguérite de Navarre's "Heptameron François" with the illustrations by Dunker and Freudenberger. Gessner himself was responsible for the illustrations, the ornaments and the printing. In this German version he included the pastoral play "Evander und Alcimna" and the poem "An den Wasserfall" which the French "Oeuvres" of 1777 did not contain; on the other hand, he omitted the "Contes" of Diderot which the French edition offered. There are four new illustrations as well, and three were left out. - A clean, wide-margined copy. - Leemann-van Elck, Salomon Gessner, p. 113 and no. 539; Maler und Dichter der Idylle Salomon Gessner, cat.

TENIERS, After David II (1610-1690)
London: John Boydell, 1 July 1777. Engraving, coloured by hand, by J.B. Michel. (Expert repair to upper margin just touching image area). 16 5/8 x 22 7/8 inches. 19 1/8 x 24 inches. A lively scene from the Flemish master of the interior genre picture. Born in Antwerp, David Teniers was the son of David Teniers I. He became a master of the Antwerp Guild of St Luke in 1632-3 after an apprenticeship to his father, with whom he also collaborated. In 1637 he married Anna, the daughter and heiress of Jan Breughel I. From the outset Teniers the younger was an extremely productive painter, thanks to his good relationship with Antwerp art dealers. During the 1630s he produced small-format religious scenes on commission for Chrysostoom van Immerseel, who supplied the Spanish market. However, it was Teniers's genre pieces that were greatly prized by the Antwerp dealers and made him famous. Teniers quickly became one of Antwerp's pace-setting and most successful painters, which probably accounts for his assumption of functions that carried a degree of social prominence, such as the office of Master of the Chapel of the Holy Sacrament in the St Jacobskerk between 1637 and 1639, and Dean of the Guild of St Luke in 1645. He also received such prestigious commissions as the large group portrait of the Arquebusiers Company (1643). During this same Antwerp period he also executed commissions for Antonine Triest (1576- 1657), Bishop of Bruges, one of the most prominent patrons of the arts in the southern Netherlands. By 1647 Teniers was working for Archduke Leopold William, Governor o … [Klicken Sie unten für eine ausführliche Beschreibung]

G.B. Piranesi
1777. John Wilton-Ely plate 745The watermark is present on the companion print "Braccio di citta pensile, e navigata al di sotto" but is indistinguishable due to the heavy ink.this plate 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 work, the artistic quality always predominates. He was fon … [Klicken Sie unten für eine ausführliche Beschreibung]

Maseres, Francis:
London. 1777-1779.. Three volumes. 483; xxii,404; xlii,[399]-810pp. Half titles. Original plain boards, uniformly rebacked in period-style plain paper. Covers detached from first volume. Else near fine, internally crisp and untrimmed. Maseres was the attorney general of Canada from 1766 to 1769 and a staunch proponent of the rights of Canadians as British subjects, and particularly the religious liberty of the French Canadians, even though he was himself a devout Protestant. He was convinced that the harshness of the Quebec Act was a disaster for the Canadian merchants whom he represented in London, and for England's chances of holding its American empire together. This long argument, published over three years and in the form of a dialogue between a British gentleman and a Catholic Canadian freeholder, covers most of the pressing political concerns of the American colonies. It is interesting both from a Canadian perspective and as part of the larger argument over the more southern colonies. Maseres was one of the firmest Whig friends of the American colonies at the time of the Revolution. This is his longest and most elaborate political work, and the volumes are rarely found together. The present set includes the second state of the first volume titlepage, stating "in two dialogues," with the third volume stating "in three dialogues." LANDE 615. TPL 521. GAGNON I:658.

JUDAICA ISRAELI Isaac ben Joseph
1777. First Edition . (JUDAICA) ISRAELI, Isaac ben Joseph. Yesod Olam [The Foundation of the World]. Berlin: Baruch Szyk of Shklov, 1777. Octavo, 20th-century half black cloth. $1600.First edition of this important astronomical text originally written in 1310.“Israeli (first half of the 14th century), was a Spanish astronomer who worked in Toledo. [He] is best known for his book Yesod Olam written in 1310, which was considered the most important contribution to Hebrew literature in this field. It dealt with the geometrical problems of the earth in the Ptolemaic system of the universe as revised by al-Bitsuji, the seasons, etc., and included astronomical tables. The high esteem in which this book was held over several centuries led to an edition in 1777 being published in Berlin” (Encyclopedia of Judaica). The two folding plates issued with this book are here provided in excellent facsimile; the plates are often missing from this book, as orthodox readers used to remove them for fear of being accused of reading forbidden literature. Baruch Szyk writes in his introduction: “I felt a great urge to raise the status of our people by translating books into Hebrew, in every study of science… Finally, I found what I have been looking for; in the archival collection of the Rabbi of Berlin, I found a manuscript of the book Yesod Olam… I am thankful for his permission to publish this book, in order to spread its light for all students who crave its wisdom.” Text lightly embrowned. A very good, clean copy.

No Author Given
No Publisher Given(1777). A Parliamentary Chronicle: or accounts of the proceedings and debates of the House of Commons, upon the opening of the present sessions. This spans from October 30, 1776 to February, 25 1777. No author. These proceedings open with an address by King George to parliament, regarding the American Revolution. It begins, "Nothing could have afforded me so much satisfaction as to have been able to inform you, at the opening of this session, that the troubles, which have so long distracted my colonies in North America, were at an end; and that my unhappy people, recovered from their delusion, had delivered themselves from the oppression of their leaders, and returned to their duty [...]".After this address various members of parliament respond, some with support for the war and others advocating granting America its independence. Some of these speeches go into detail in regard to troops, morale, conduct, propaganda in the US press, especially propaganda by General Gage. Also discussed within are Britainn's defenses against Spain and France, Jamaica, and many other interesting topics. The debates over the war with America are amazing historical references, serving to frame the Revolutionary War through the eyes of the British. This book has been re-bound in blue cloth with the title in gilt in a small strip of leather on the spine. VERY GOOD condition with light soiling, light fading and moderate scuffing, mostly noticeable to the top and bottom of the spine. Light bumping and edgewear. Pages clean and solid but browning.
