ADAM, After Robert (1728-1792) and James ADAM (d.1794)
London 1777 - An elegant engraving depicting a collection of ornate furniture in the Earl of Derby's celebrated house in Grosvenor 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.

Colley Cibber
London-J Rivington and Sons et al, 1777 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. Fournicely bound volumes of plays by CibberVolumes I-III and VBound in leather with gilt lettering and bordersColley Cibber (1671 1757) was a British actor-manager, playwright, and Poet Laureate. His colourful memoir Apology for the Life of Colley Cibber (1740) started a British tradition of personal, anecdotal, and even rambling autobiography. He wrote some plays for performance by his own company at Drury Lane, and adapted many more from various sources, receiving frequent criticism for his miserable mutilation (Robert Lowe) of hapless Shakespeare, and crucify'd Molire (Alexander Pope). He regarded himself as first and foremost an actor and had great popular success in comical fop parts, while as a tragic actor he was persistent but much ridiculed. Cibber's brash, extroverted personality did not sit well with his contemporaries, and he was frequently accused of tasteless theatrical productions, social and political opportunism (which was thought to have gained him the laureateship over far better poets), and shady business methods. He rose to herostratic fame when he became the chief target, the head Dunce, of Alexander Pope's satirical poem The Dunciad. Cibber's poetical work was ridiculed in his time, and has been remembered only for being bad. His importance in British theatre history rests on his being the first in a long line of actor-managers, on the interest of two of his comedies as documents of mutating early 18th-century taste and ideology, and on the value of his autobiography as a source for o … [Click Below for Full Description]

G.B. Piranesi
1777. John Wilton-Ely plate 348The watermark is a fleur-de-lis but one is unable to determine which version 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 ruins with Callot-like figures, and \"lik … [Click Below for Full Description]

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 topog … [Click Below for Full Description]

John Jordan
London - S. Hooper. 1777. Hardcover. Book, A copy of the scarce first poem to be published by the 'Stratford Poet'Extremely ScarceBound in quarter leather with marbled boards and vellum board edgeJordan, John (17461809), local historian and poet, eldest son of John Jordan (17181775), wheelwright, and Elizabeth Lock (17161777), was born at Tiddington, in Alveston, near Stratford upon Avon, on 9 October 1746. He was educated at the village school until 1756, but then was put to learn his father's trade. In 1759 his father moved the family to Stratford, where John continued to work for him, before taking over the business on his father's death in 1775. But his evident academic abilities led him to seek advancement by way of antiquarian and Shakespeare studies. He played various Shakespearian characters in local theatrical productions, and by 1776 had composed Welcombe Hills, Near Stratford upon Avon; a Poem, Historical and Descriptive. This work, on which Joseph Greene, headmaster of the town's grammar school, gave him considerable assistance, was published by subscription the following year. John Jordan married, at St Philip's, Birmingham, on 2 June 1783, Sarah (bap. 1750, d. 1799), daughter of Samuel Smith; with her he had two children. Condition: The binding is firm.

SCHEELE, Carl Wilhelm
Upsala & Leipzig: Magn. Swederus... zu finden bey S.L. Crusius, 1777. First edition of this extremely scarce and important book which contains the announcement of Scheeles discovery of oxygen, made independently of, and two years prior to, Priestley. Scheeles monumental discovery was made by 1773; he had begun his experiments on oxygen in 1770. The publication of this book was delayed due to the fact that Tobern Bergman was two years late in delivering his promised preface. The work is fittingly bound with Bergmans own lectures on the nature and application of chemistry, a rare work that is not included in his collected works Opuscula Physica et Chemica.The independent discovery of oxygen is here described and the composition of air by two gases is illustrated. One of these is necessary for combustion and respiration and it is absorbed by a number of solid substances and can be artificially produced; the second gas (nitrogen) prevents combustion. Scheeles fire-air (oxygen) could be produced from saltpetre, from black oxide of manganese, from oxide of mercury, etc. The photo-sensitive nature of chloride of silver was announced, a discovery that led to photography (Dibner, Heralds of Science, 41). Scheele (1742-1786) was an experimental genius; he made more discoveries of first-rate importance with fewer opportunities and scantier appliances than any one else, and his skill, insight and power of illuminating experimental results have never been surpassed, if indeed, they have ever been equaled (Ferguson II.331).Bergman (1735-1784) was a member of the Swedish Academy and from … [Click Below for Full Description]

QUARLES Francis
Printed and sold by H. Trapp, 1777. [xii] 9-289 [24 pp. advertisements] i plus plates not counted in the pagination 12mo Profusely illustrated with wonderful wood cuts, title page plus ca. 94 additional full page plates rebound in full brown morocco, gilt-lettered spine, all edges gilt, marbled endpapers Francis Quarles (1592-1644) 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 work--his 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 text, termin … [Click Below for Full Description]

RAPHAEL. Raffaello Sanzio d'Urbino (1483-1520)
Rome, 1777. Copper engraving by Volpato after a drawing by Camporesi, later professional hand-colouring. Good condition. Expert strengthening to verso of right outer blank margin, some old light creasing to 3 inches of the sheet. This beautiful perspective view of Raphael's Loggia, served as the frontispiece to the celebrated text, "Loggie di Rafaele nel Vaticano". This arresting print is a general perspective view of Raphael's design for the Loggia at the Vatican, with a large profile portrait of Raphael in a medallion over the entrance to the corridor. The plate served as the frontispiece to the first part of the "Logge di Rafaele nel Vaticano", which depicted the decorative work executed by Raphael and his assistants between 1518-1519 in the Vatican. This remarkable print, one of the first to be published of the decoration of the Logge on the main storey of the Vatican apartments, was probably planned as early as 1760, but was not executed until between 1772 and 1776. The project as a whole was carried out by the painter Gaetano Savorelli, the draughtsman Ludovico Teseo, the architect Pietro Camporesi, and the engravers Giovanni Ottaviani and Giovanni Volpato. The whole series was of importance not just for the size and magnificent colouring of the prints, but also because of the influence they had on contemporary taste. The decision was made to "borrow" elements from Raphael's Vatican tapestries and insert them where the original frescoes were in too poor a state to be legible. The finished plates therefore represented an amalgam of design elements presented w … [Click Below for Full Description]
