Prestel, Maria Katharina (geb. Höll 1747 Nürnberg ? London 1794)
Farbaquatinta, 1777, nach einer Zeichnung von Jacopo Ligozzi (1547-1627), mit gestochener Umrandung, mit Paßlöchern, auf chamoisfarbenem festem Bütten. 57,7:38,5 cm. ? Linker Rand mit einem Papierstreifen hinterlegt. Literatur: Schwaighofer 35. Blatt 30 der Folge ?Praunsches Kabinett, Nürnberg?. Vorzüglicher und vollrandiger Abdruck dieser beeindruckenden dynamischen Darstellung! Die Malerin, Zeichnerin, Radiererin und Kupferstecherin ist seit 1769 in Nürnberg erst Schülerin, dann Mitarbeiterin und seit 1772 Ehefrau des Malers, Radierers und Kupferstechers J.G. Prestel (1739-1808), mit dem sie gemeinsam eine Reproduktionswerkstatt betrieb, die zwar großen, aber weniger finanziellen Erfolg hatte. 1782 zog das Künstlerpaar gemeinsam nach Frankfurt am Main, 1786 jedoch siedelte sie alleine nach London über in der Hoffnung auf bessere Verdienstmöglichkeiten ? eine vollständige Trennung vom Ehemann war wohl entgegen bisheriger Annahmen nicht angedacht. Dort arbeitete sie erfolgreich als Radiererin und Kupferstecherin und fertigte für verschiedene bekannte örtliche Verleger zahlreiche Reproduktionen nach deutschen, holländischen und italienischen Meistern an, z.B. für Molteno, Colnaghi & Cie. Ihre beiden Kinder, Ursula Magdalena (1777-1845) und Michael Gottlieb (1779-1845), die ebenfalls die künstlerische Laufbahn einschlugen, Gottlieb wurde darüber hinaus Kunsthändler, folgten ihr 1789 nach London; ihr Ehemann blieb mit dem Rest der Familie in Frankfurt am Main ansässig. Ein Wiedersehen der Eheleute hat nicht stattgefunden.

HUME, David.
London: printed for T. Cadell, in the Strand: and A. Donaldson, and W. Creech, at Edinburgh, 1777. 2 volumes, octavo (213 x 127 mm). Contemporary sprinkled calf, twin red and brown morocco labels, spines richly gilt, single gilt rule to covers, A few pencilled and one ink annotation in an early hand; old chipped paper shelf label at head of spine of vol. I. Wear to spine ends, light splitting to joints of vol. II, sporadic light foxing but generally clean. A very good copy. French armorial bookplate of the Chateau de Dampierre to front pastedowns. The definitive - and first posthumous - edition of Hume's collection of essays, first published in 1753 without his authorization, but thereafter continually revised by him for various editions over the next two decades; this edition, published the year following his death, contains his final revisions and additions, and includes his essay "Of the Origin of Government" which is here printed for the first time. It was Hume's essays, rather than his longer treatises, that brought him popular acclaim and commercial success, and indeed, they were his preferred philosophical writings; prefixed to vol. II is his advertisement disavowing his Treatise on Human Nature, and asserting that "the following pieces may alone be regarded as containing his philosophical sentiments and principles". ESTC T33493; Jessop, p. 26.

Cobenzl, Philipp von:
France, 1777. Goldverzierter Pappband aus dem späten 18. Jahrhundert. 92 Seiten // Bound in late 18th century decorated boards. 92 pages. The trip to France by the Holy Roman Emperor Joseph II (1741-1790) was one of the most important and most famous royal voyages in the 18th century. The main purposes of the journey were the improvement of the relations between France and the Holy Roman Empire and the support of the shattered marriage between Louis XVI of France and Marie-Antoinette, Joseph's sister. The trip began on April 1, 1777 , in Vienna. The emperor travelled under the pseudonym Count of Falkenstein and was accompanied by the Austrian general Joseph von Colloredo (1735-1818), the diplomat Ludovico, Count di Belgiojoso (1728-1801), the physician Giovanni Alessandro Brambilla (1728-1800) and Philipp von Cobenzl (1741-1810), the author of the present manuscript. The voyage led them from Munich, Stuttgart, Strasbourg and Metz to Paris, and after a six-week residence in the French metropolis back through Brest, Bordeaux, Toulouse, Toulon, Marseille, Geneve, Basel and Freiburg. Joseph II was eager for knowledge on every aspect of the French Empire and he did not merely visit famous attractions, but especially hospitals, poorhouses, schools, fortifications, factories, shipyards and so on. He met many members of the royal family and the high nobility, as well as bankers, writers, scientists and artists. The journey caused a sensation amongst the French population and many pamphlets and books have been published on it. One of the most piquant tasks of the trip was certainly … [Click Below for Full Description]

WILLIAMS, John.
London: T. Becket, 1777. 2 volumes, quarto (265 x 203 mm). Contemporary mottled calf, spines elaborately decorated gilt, red morocco labels, yellow edges. Engraved armorial bookplates of John Wilkinson to front pastedowns, stencilled 19th-century ownership stamp of James Bannantyne to free endpapers, joints starting to crack but still very firm, corners and extremities worn, some surface scrapes and wear to boards, occasional spotting and the odd stain; generally still a very good copy. First edition of a lengthy survey of the northern countries of Europe. The author acknowledges the assistance he received from various heads of state and dignitaries, not only through conversation, but from access to their libraries and public records. "Williams, deriding Voltaire for describing a country he had never visited, seems to have been in Russia in 1770. He refers to his interviews in St Petersburg and Moscow, consulting manuscripts (in German) in the Kremlin, and travelling '1700 versts in the Russian dominions to form some idea of the character of the mass of the people in this state'. He provides an overview of the geography and history of Russia, dwelling in particular on the reign of Peter I and the overthrow of Peter III. There is little evidence of his own observations, even when writing on 'manners and customs'" (Cross). Cross, In the land of the Romanovs, D22. Not in Goldsmiths' or Kress.

FORSTER, Georg
London: B. White, 1777. I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I have many more photos on my website...just ask. "Remember, the greater the opportunity, the fewer are those who see it." - James Cook James Cook was an 18th-century British explorer known for this three major world voyages. His second voyage, which was supported by the British government, was set out to circumnavigate the world by means of going as far south as possible. This voyage, which is significantly less reported on than his third and final voyage, took Cook to locations such as Easter Island, Tahiti, and the Arctic Circle - Cook became the first to cross the Arctic Circle. Perhaps the most important discovery from this voyage was proving that no continent existed between New Zealand and South America - a common theory amongst centuries of European navigators and historians. This first edition, an unsupported and unofficial account, was written by Georg Forster, the son of an historian who published the contents of his father's journals and notes regarding Cook. This work is notable as it was published three weeks before the first official account was released. Sabin notes: "The author's father was a naturalist to the expedition, and his account anticipated the official report, and forms a necessary adjunct to Capt. Cook's voyages." According to Lowndes, "This account of the second voyage of Capt. Cook is chiefly devoted to the description of scientific and philosophical subjects.". [Attributes: First Edition]

Headpieces, joints, and corners scraped. A very good, fresh copy.An important essay on the origins of the peoples of the American continent (North and South). The author uses several approaches to produce a powerful comparative study of languages (most notably those of the islands of South-East Asia, Mexico and Peru), dress and traditions. Scherer's conclusion, notably relying on Classical literature and various accounts of voyages, is that the people of the Americas had several different migratory origins, including Chinese, African and Asian tribes. North America, and especially Alaska, received several waves of migration from the Bering Strait, via Kamchatka, and from Asia. [Attributes: First Edition]

John Howard Illustrated First Edition London: William Eyres for T. Cadell and N. Conant, 1777. 4to (28.3 cm, 11.1"). [8], 489, [23] pp.; plates. First edition: John Howard (1726-1790) visited local prisons and discovered jailers were paid by fees from prisoners. Howard convinced the House of Commons to create acts to salary jailers, to free the innocent, and to provide clean and ventilated quarters, clothes, and medical care to prisoners. He spent a lifetime and much of his wealth researching prisons, hospitals, and workhouses throughout Europe and Russia.

Demie-reliure cuir brun, dos à nerfs, titre & millésime dorés (reliure moderne en excellent état), pas ou peu de rousseurs mais exemplaire court de marge verticale avec parfois perte de lettres comme indiqué dans le détail infra (le relieur d'origine a probablement voulu supprimer des mouillures marginales mais, insuffisamment attentif, a pris le risque de rogner le bout des lignes lorsque l'impression était légèrement décalée ou légèrement biaisée (en témoignent un papier endommagé sur la marge verticale des XXX premières pp introductives, la différence de qualité de papier sur la marge verticale, et la conservation d'une marge inférieure plus importante avec parfois des vestiges de mouillures). NB : le portrait de Benjamin Franklin, ambassadeur des Etats-Unis, et l'épitre dédicatoire à Franklin ont supprimés par l'éditeur pour la quasi-totalité des ex., si bien que la pagination commence à IX après les pages non chiffrées (faux titre, page de titre) : il n'y a donc aucune page manquante en dépit de la pagination inhabituelle (Caillet n° 8256, Brunet IV-320).

Robinson, 1777. 1777 1st ed Captain James Cook Second Voyage Forster Antarctica Arctic Australis"Remember, the greater the opportunity, the fewer are those who see it." - James CookJames Cook was an 18th-century British explorer known for this three major world voyages. His second voyage, which was supported by the British government, was set out to circumnavigate the world by means of going as far south as possible. This voyage, which is significantly less reported on than his third and final voyage, took Cook to locations such as Easter Island, Tahiti, and the Arctic Circle - Cook became the first to cross the Arctic Circle. Perhaps the most important discovery from this voyage was proving that no continent existed between New Zealand and South America - a common theory amongst centuries of European navigators and historians.This first edition, an unsupported and unofficial account, was written by Georg Forster, the son of an historian who published the contents of his father's journals and notes regarding Cook. This work is notable as it was published three weeks before the first official account was released. Sabin notes:"The author's father was a naturalist to the expedition, and his account anticipated the official report, and forms a necessary adjunct to Capt. Cook's voyages."According to Lowndes,"This account of the second voyage of Capt. Cook is chiefly devoted to the description of scientific and philosophical subjects."Item number: #6500 Price: $1500FORSTER, GeorgA voyage round the world in His Britannic … [Click Below for Full Description]
