        THE HISTORY OF AMERICA, FROM ITS DISCOVERY BY COLUMBUS TO THE CONCLUSION OF THE LATE WAR. WITH AN APPENDIX, CONTAINING AN ACCOUNT OF THE RISE AND PROGRESS OF THE PRESENT UNHAPPY CONTEST BETWEEN GREAT BRITAIN AND HER COLONIES.

      London: Fielding and Walker, 1778. - Two volumes. iv,596; 629,[1]pp., plus forty-six (of fifty- one) maps and plates (some folding). Quarto. Contemporary three-quarter calf and marbled boards, rebacked to style. Some scattered foxing and offsetting from plates. Last leaf of first volume torn and repaired. Still, a good copy. A comprehensive history of America for the time, issued in the midst of the American Revolution, covering the period from the conquest through the settlement and division of America. It is likely that the book was inspired by the war, and the second half of the second volume is devoted to events from the French and Indian War up to the American treaty with France in February 1778. Illustrated with a profusion of nicely engraved maps, plans, portraits, and plates depicting South American Indians, scenes of European conquest, Florida Indians, Esquimaux, seaport views, and the like. While some of the views seem to have been cribbed from the usual sources such as De Bry's GRAND VOYAGES, many seem unique to this work. The early maps are after Bellin, the later ones after Jefferys.

Sinapius. - Der in Halle geborene Karl Gustav von Struensee (1735-1804) studierte Mathematik und Philosophie und wurde schon 1757 Professor an der Ritterakademie in Liegnitz. Er beschäftigte sich intensiv mit dem Kriegswesen und veröffentlichte 1760 seine "Anfangsgründe der Artillerie", ein Buch, das jahrzehntelang als Standardwerk galt und auch von Friedrich II. gelobt wurde. Auf Veranlassung seines Bruders Johann Friedrich von Struensee ging er 1769 nach Kopenhagen, wurde dänischer Justizrat und Mitglied des Finanzkollegiums. In den Sturz seines Bruders 1770 verwickelt, wurde er mehrere Monate eingekerkert und kehrte 1772 nach Preußen zurück. Seine von Friedrich II. gewünschte Wiedereinstellung an der Ritterakademie lehnte er ab und machte sich, auf seine erfolgreichen Erfahrungen in Kopenhagen aufbauend, an das Studium der Volkswirtschaft. "Nunmehr sah sich der König, dessen scharfer Blick jetzt die Brauchbarkeit Struensee's für die Verwaltung erkannte, zu Struensee's unverzüglicher Berufung nach Elbing als Bankdirector bewogen (1777). St. erwarb sich in dieser Stellung wesentliche Verdienste. Außerdem gab er ungenannt ein volkswirthschaftliches Werk heraus: 'Kurzgefaßte Beschreibung der Handlung .', das von St. nicht vollendet wurde. 1782 wurde er als Oberfinanzrat und Direktor der Seehandlung nach Berlin berufen "und wurde 1791 preußischer Staatsminister und Chef des Akzise- und Zolldepartements, vermochte aber die in seinen Schriften empfohlenen Reformen im Finanzwesen nicht durchzuführen" (Meyers 6.Aufl.). - Kapitale etwas bestoßen, durchgängig etwas stockfleckig und gebräunt.

        A Tour in Wales MDCCLXXIII

      Henry Hughes, London 1778 - In full brown leather, corners and edges a little bumped and worn, covers scratched. Spine is modern, blind and gilt tooling, title in gilt, a different shade to covers. Internally, new marbled endpapers, relaid bookplate of Sir Joseph Mowbey to fep, engraved title page with vignette of Caergwrle Castle by Moses Griffith, [2], (vi), [2], 455 pp, [1], [10] index and adverts, 26/26 pl, some light offsetting. Pennants tour in Wales actually took place in 1773, MDCLXX was corrected by hand to MDCLXXIII on a number of copies, but not this one, usual pagination errors but complete. A really nice copy, clean, tight with the absolute minimum amount of foxing. Not often seen as good as this, shame about the spine! This publication was followed by a printing in Dublin in 1779, and then a Journey to Snowdon Part 1 in 1781, then part 2 in 1783 which combined into 2 volumes 3 parts in 1784! (ESTC T133752. Allibone 1553) After the success of his earlier Tour of Scotland, Pennant undertook several other tours: of northern England in 1773, of Northamptonshire and of the Isle of Man in 1774, of Warwickshire in 1776, of Kent in 1776, and of Cornwall in 1787. Several tours throughout Wales in the early 1770s, where his Welsh-speaking friend and companion, the Revd John Lloyd of Caerwys, performed the same function as Stuart had in Gaelic Scotland, were brought together as Tours in Wales in three volumes (1778¿83).

      R.-J. Julien, Rue du Chaume à l'Hôtel de Soubise, Paris 1778 - An extremely rare and beautifully engraved pair of maps of the American Colonies depicted during the Revolutionary War This very elegant matched pair of maps, when considered together, embraces the Atlantic seaboard of America from Georgia up to the Gulf of St. Lawrence, and into the interior to include the Appalachians and the Ohio Valley. The two maps divide horizontally at a point just south of New York City. These maps very rarely appear as a complete pair, as originally intended, and the southern sheet seems to be exceptionally scarce. They were produced by Verrier and Perrier, who assumed management of Roch-Josèphe Julien's establishment in 1777. Described as "the first true map shop in Paris," it was located at the Hôtel de Soubise, a magnificent palace that was an architectural jewel of the rococo period. Verrier and Perrier responded to the French public's great demand for maps of America following their country's entry into the Revolutionary War in support of the American cause, pursuant to the Treaty of Alliance of February, 1778, a diplomatic success realised by the efforts of Benjamin Franklin. Like other French cartographers, Verrier and Perrier faced great challenges in devising their maps, as their nation lacked independent North American cartographic sources since its effective expulsion from the continent in 1763 following the Seven Years War. Records show that in March, 1778 they wrote to England's most eminent cartographer, William Faden requesting new material. They then went to great effort and expense to produce this magnificent matched pair of maps based on John Mitchell's A Map of the British & French Dominions in North America (1755), which was by far the era's most influential map of the subject. This pair of maps were amongst the first and most detailed, and certainly one of the finest French cartographic representations of the entire theatre of the Revolutionary War. At the time that they were made, the French were sending the naval force of the Comte D'Estaing to assist the Americans, who although having bested the British in New England, were facing renewed threats from Britain's Royal Navy. The British had effective control of Canada, New York City and Newport, Rhode Island, but were preparing a dramatic southern offensive which would see them seizing Savannah, Georgia in December, 1778. While the initial endeavors of the Franco-American alliance did not turn out as planned, the intervention of the Comte de Rochambeau proved to be a decisive element in securing the ultimate victory of the Americans, an outcome effectively secured at the Battle of Yorktown in October, 1781. Both of the map sheets are adorned with highly elegant cartouches, the one on the top sheet features an Indian maiden astride laurel boughs, and the one on the lower sheet evinces a nautical theme.

        Detail of a fresco in the 'Domus Aureus'

      Ludovico Mirri, [Rome 1778 - A fine plate from 'Vestigia delle terme di Tito e loro interne pitture' of an ancient fresco from the 'Domus Aureus', Nero's sumptuous imperial complex in Rome. Situated between the Palatine and Esquiline Hills in Rome and designed by architects Severus and Celer , the Domus Aureus (Golden House) was erected by Nero in 64 AD after the great fire in Rome. The magnitude and decadent extravagance of the impressive gold-covered, jewel bedecked palace was intended to glorify the Emperor's reign. Its rooms were filled with lavish furniture and its walls and ceilings covered with decorative late-Hellenistic murals by the renowned ancient artist Fabullus. Nero, however, died in 68 AD before the Domus was totally completed. Years later, Titus (and later Trajan) built his thermal bath over its ruins, which were used as a foundation for and were partially preserved by Titus' edifice. Successive emperors continued to erect various buildings on the site and subsequently make several renovations to the Domus substructure. In 1480, practically forgotten, the Domus was excavated, and its subterranean passages and rooms thereafter became known as 'le grotte' (cave). Many of its original frescoes survived, and their motifs and ancient style of ornamentation, called 'grotteschi' (grotesque) after 'grotte', became extremely popular during the Renaissance, influencing many prominent artists such as Raphael, Michelangelo, Ghirlandaio, and Pinturicchio. Published in the late eighteenth century, 'Vestigia delle terme di Tito e loro interne pitture' is an elaborate album of engravings depicting the stunning 'al fresco' and 'al stucco' murals of Nero's Domus Aureus . Carloni's colourful and beautifully rendered plates faithfully capture the grotesque style of the ancient frescoes, which was characterized by decorative borders filled with whimsical, often comical animals and foliage taken from both nature and the artist's imagination. The ornamental borders also served the practical functions of framing the central mythological, religious, or historical subject portrayed and separating the various murals in a single decorative scheme. Original engraving with modern bodycolour. Very good condition apart from some mild creasing and a few small tears in the top and bottom margins.

        La Parte Occidentale Della Nuova Francia O Canada?

      Venice 1778 - A stunning and attractive four-sheet, large scale map of the Great Lakes, put together and laid down on acid-free canvas for long term presevation. This set of maps of the Great Lakes from the North American section of Zatta's "Atlante Novissimo", one of the major Italian atlases of the 18th century, are based on Mitchell's important map of 1755 (with updates such as a reference to Bourgoyne's defeat at Saratoga, among others). Mitchell's work was the most influential map of North America made in the 18th century. There were twenty-one editions of Mitchell's map published between 1755 and 1781. Though it was first published in 1755, it was used by negotiators in Paris in 1783 to determine the boundaries of the new United States. It is interesting to note that Zatta's derivative was published in 1778., Size : 640x860 (mm), 25.125x33.875 (Inches), Original Outline Coloring, 0

        Map / Chart of Eastern Canada- Hudson Bay, Newfoundland, Greenland, Labrador): La Baya D' Hudson Terra Di Labrador e Groenlandia Con Le Isole Adiacenti.

      Antionio Zatta, Venice 1778 - Near fine, early outline color with small decorative cartouche. The date is from the map plate, but this was published in 'Atlante Novissimo", which came out c. 1779. Zatta was a major Italian cartographer of the time, and his works are increasingly popular with collectors. This scarce copper-plate engraved map has very wide margins, and the image measures 11.5x16 inches. There is a quite a bit of coastal detail of Labrador, Neewfoundland and southern Greenland, but the central focus is on Hudson Bay, with available native American details noted.

        Carte Generale des Colonies Angloises dans l'Amerique Septentrionale . d'apres les manuscrits de plusieurs auteurs Angloises, pour servir de suite au Theatre de la Guerre par M. Brion de la Tour .

      chez Esnauts et Rapilly, Paris 1778 - Rare separately-issued map of the British Colonies during the American Revolution. France's entry into the American War of Independence in 1778 engendered great interest among the French public for maps of the region. Phelippeaux here depicts the theatre of war, showing the region from Hudson's Bay in the north to the Gulf of Mexico in the south and far west well beyond the Mississippi River. Cartographically, the map generally follows John Mitchell's famous map, depicting the region in good detail, with many towns, roads, forts and Indian villages identified. French Louisiana extends eastwards as far as the Appalachian Mountains and westward well into territories claimed by Spain; the original British Colonial grant for Virginia and Carolina are shown extending westward to the edge of the map. The cession of Louisiana west of the Mississippi to Spain is not depicted. However, the cession of Upper Louisiana to the British under the 1763 Treaty of Paris, is clearly shown. The decorative cartouche, engraved by E. Voysard, shows the title on a banner hung from two trees, with battle flags on either side and a large cannon and battery in the foreground. The title suggests that this "Carte Generale" was issued as a sister map to Brion de la Tour's "Carte du Théatre de la Guerre entre les Anglais et les Américains: Dressée d'après les Cartes Anglaises les plus modernes" (1777). Sellers and Van Ee, Maps and Charts of North America and the West Indies 151; cf. McCorkle, New England in Early Printed Maps 777.18. Engraved map, period hand-colouring in outline.
