        [Captain James Cook]

      London: J K Sherwin, 1779. Engraving, artist's proof copy 275 x 235 mm, mounted and framed. Very first proof copy of first separately issued portrait of Cook. A proof impression (before title, date and some letters) of the first issue of the first separately published engraving of Captain Cook.This famous portrait of the great navigator was published in the year of his death, though news of the events at Kealakekua Bay did not reach Europe until the following year. Now the trademark image of Cook as a result of its very many subsequent versions (Beddie lists an astonishing 284 entries for the Dance group), it was considered the best likeness at the time and is known, for example, to have been distributed to friends by his widow Elizabeth. It is a conspicuously rare portrait in this first version. The engraving is based on Nathaniel Dance's original portrait, commissioned by Joseph Banks, for which Cook sat for Dance in 1776, before sailing on his third voyage. The painting is today in the National Maritime Museum, Greenwich. Dance, one of the greatest of British history painters and a founding member of the Royal Academy, shows Cook wearing captain's full-dress uniform and holding his own chart of the Southern Ocean: the caption "New Holland" can clearly be discerned in the engraving.This extremely rare proof was pulled before the image had been titled and dated, and before the usual pinxit and sculpsit notes had been added to the artists' names; this state corresponds with an example in the Mitchell Library (it is item 3 in an 18th-century connoisseur's album entitled "Three voyages round the world"), while a subsequent state with the addition of the title is held in the Dixson Library (Beddie 3379). An earlier less developed form where the shape of Cook's body has been simply blocked out is held by the National Library (Rex Nan Kivell Collection NK10914/A and /B).

Saubere Ausgabe des "berühmtesten deutschen Gartenbuches der Zeit. Kupfertafeln nach Schuricht, Zingg etc. von Crusius, Geyser, Liebe u. a. gestochen. Alle Kupfer mit der erwähnten Ausnahme komplett. Das fünfbändige Werk ist der erste Versuch in deutscher Sprache dem gartenbaulichen Umbruch der Zeit eine unter dem Begriff "Gartenkunst" zusammenfassende künstlerische Dimension zuzugestehen. Der Idealgarten wendet sich ausschließlich der Natur zu und somit gegen die repräsentative Formalität des französischen und den barocken Überschwang des italienischen Gartens. Weniger eine eigene "Gartentheorie", befasst sich das Werk mit den Eigenschaften des Gartens unter Betonung der künstlerischen aber auch oft künstlichen Komponenten. So beschäftigt sich der 3. Band ausschließlich mit architektonischem Beiwerk und auch ansonsten findet weniger die Gestaltung, als die Ausschmückung Erwähnung. Dennoch hat dieses Werk grundlegende Bedeutung für die deutsche Gartenkultur zu Beginn des 19.Jhdts und deren weitere Entwicklung. Enslin/Engelmann 132. Sprache: deu Gut.

        L’Usurier". Der Wucherer.

      - Feder in Rot und Braun, grau, braun und rot laviert, links unten signiert „Göz Inv. et del.", im Unterrand betitelt, auf Bütten. 20,6:14,3 cm. Die untere Blattkante etwas unregelmäßig geschnitten. Ursprünglich Jurist und als solcher bis 1779 in Wien im Staatsdienst angestellt, betrieb Göz hier, wohl unter dem Einfluß von H.F. Füger (1751-1818), intensive Malstudien. 1779-1783 war er in München ansässig und malte dort Bildnisse z.B. von Kurfürst Karl Theodor von der Pfalz und dem Schauspieler F.L. Schröder (als Hamlet). Anschließend ging er nach Augsburg, kehrte jedoch 1785 vorübergehend nach München zurück und zog 1791 nach Regenburg, wo er verstarb. Neben seiner malerischen Tätigkeit war er als Graphiker, Kupferstecher sowie Schriftsteller v.a. für das Theater tätig, denen er auch als Direktor vorstand. Während seines mehrjährigen Aufenthaltes in Augsburg veröffentlichte er u.a. 1785 eine 100-Blatt-Folge Radierungen unter dem Titel „Excercises d’Imagination de différ. Caractères et Formes humaines". Wahrscheinlich handelt es sich bei dem vorliegenden Blatt um eine Vorzeichnung zu dieser Folge.

        Trials for Adultery: or, the History of Divorces

      London: S. Bladon,, 1779-80. Being Select Trials at Doctors Commons, for Adultery, Cruelty, Fornication, Impotence, &c. From the Year 1760, to the present Time. Including the whole of the Evidence on each Case. Together with the Letters, &c. that have been intercepted between the amorous Parties. Taken in Short-Hand by a Civilian. 7 volumes, octavo (195 × 118 mm). Contemporary calf, all volumes rebacked with the original spines laid down, new labels, single gilt panel to the boards, edges sprinkled blue, marbled endpapers. 30 very sprightly engraved plates by Wells, Golder, Grignion, Cook, Birrell and Collyer, after Dodd. A little rubbed at the extremities, front endpapers renewed in volume II, light browning throughout, heavier in some gatherings, and occasional offsetting from the plates, but overall a very good set. First editions, complete, originally published in seventy parts each separately paginated. "The genre of pornographic trial reports was fully developed in the late 1770s, a fact which is borne out by the publication in seven volumes of a special collection of interesting cases, Trials for Adultery … The editor remarks to the reader that 'conjugal infidelity is become so general that it is hardly considered as criminal; especially in the fashionable world'. In view of the many erotic and obscene prints contained in the seven volumes, the moral justifications offered in defence of the publication of the trial reports appear quite ridiculous, if not hypocritical. Mostly erotic, but occasionally also obscene, such pictorial material now became a standard feature of trial reports for the rest of the century" (Boucé, Sexuality in Eighteenth-century Britain, p.128). Although fairly near to the knuckle for a "legitimate" publication of their date, it is probably unfair to call the plates obscene, however "Miss Roberts sitting naked in Ld. Grosevenor's lap at the Hotel in Leicester Fields" may shade across that line. But who could resist "Lady Abergavenny & Mr. Liddel amusing themselves", "Captain Gambier and Lady Knowles habited in loose Gowns and toying together", "Mrs. Draper taking unwarrantable Liberties with William Pinfold", or "Mr. Wade & Mrs. Campbell discovered in a critical Situation by William Jenkins". The publisher has been described by Raven as "the enterprising Samuel Bladon, warehouseman of Andrew Millar, investor in newspapers, and accounting adept"; his shop "a noted repository of old plays, was singled out by book trade chronicler Thomas Rees for 'its affluence of dust and soot'" (Raven, The Business of Books: Booksellers and the English Book Trade 1450-1850, p.174). Starting operations in 1750, Bladon was responsible as seller or publisher for over 870 publications. Nineteenth-century armorial bookplate to the front pastedowns with some version of the Blake coat of arms, crest of a martlet surmounting a cap of maintenance, ermine turned up, motto "labor vincit omnia". Much enhanced by the presence of a small booksellers' ticket for "Des Forges De Luxe Books Milwaukee" to the front pastedown, gilt border slightly oxidised, but none the worse for that.

        Letter signed ("Necker") to Joseph-Marie de Barral, acknowledging receipt of the Barral's letter of 10 May, thanking him for "the details it encloses", and sending his respects to "Madame de Barral"

      Paris, 1779. One page, in ink, in secretarial hand. Minor, light foxing. Framed, and accompanied by a mezzotint portrait by Levacher (framed), "Néker Ministre d'Ètat", (ca. 1797). Good example of the autograph of the famous Swiss-born economist and Louis XVI's Minister of Finance from 1777 - 1781 and again in the months leading up to the French Revolution, when he was caled back to the government to try to save the country from ruin. Interestingly, the letter was written shortly after the American Revolution of 1776. France's monetary support of the American cause (with Necker's strong support) in the midst of a financial crisis, became a major source of controversy, and none of Necker's efforts to keep the country afloat financially were successful. Necker's daughter was the famous writer, Madame de Staël.

In 1770 he pioneered the settlement at Balembangan at the eastern tip of Borneo and from here set out in 1724 in a native prahu renamed the Tartar accompanied by two English officers and 18 Malays.

        John Adams' 20-year-old law clerk during the time he was defending the British soldiers accused of the Boston Massacre, William Tudor, delivers an Oration commemorating the "Bloody Tragedy" nine years later at the request of John Hancock and other prominent Bostonians

      Printed pamphlet: ?An Oration, delivered March 5th, 1779, at the Request of the Inhabitants of the Town of Boston; to Commemorate the Bloody Tragedy of the Fifth of March, 1770, By William Tudor, Esquire,? 18 pages, 5.25? x 8?. Boston: Printed by Edes & Gill, in Court-Street. M.DCC.LXXIX. Signed atop the first page of the oration, ?Thos Jackson April 15 1801.? Each year since 1770, at a town meeting held in Faneuil Hall, a person was asked to deliver an oration to mark the anniversary of the Boston Massacre including Dr. Joseph Warren in 1772 and 1775 and John Hancock in 1774. William Tudor (1750-1819), Harvard Class of 1769, was one of John Adams? law clerks when Adams was defending the British soldiers accused of the massacre. Tudor began his own practice in 1774. From 1775-1777, Capt. Tudor served as the chief legal officer on Gen. George Washington?s staff at Cambridge and later in New York City. Lieutenant Colonel and later Colonel, Tudor returned to Boston in 1777 and resigned his commission in 1778. Some pages closely cut affecting the last letter of some lines. Soiling and minor foxing. Pages tied together with thread. Very good condition. [Evans 16500] Some passages are underlined and there are cross-outs and corrections. For example, in the phrase ?Cromwell granted their request ?" and became sole tyrant of three kingdoms,? Jackson, most probably, crossed out ?kingdoms,? replacing it with ?countries.? Referring to Sweden?s King Gustavus III, Tudor calls him ?so wise, so good a King.? ?King? is crossed out and replaced with ?Man.? The back page is numbered ?20? and the word ?Our? appears at the bottom right indicating that at least a twenty-first page beginning with ?Our? is missing. Printed inside the front cover is the text of a motion voted ?At a Meeting of the Freeholders and other Inhabitants of the Town of Boston? on March 5th to appoint a committee of seven including John Hancock to go to Tudor ?to thank him for the spirited and elegant Oration delivered by him at their Request, in Commemoration of the horrid Massacre perpetrated on the Evening of the fifth of March, 1770, by a Party of Soldiers of the XXIXth Regiment, under the Commander of Capt. Thomas Preston, and to request of him a Copy thereof for the Press.? Tudor?s March 6th reply is printed beneath: ?Conceiving that nothing short of Impossibility ought to dispense with that prompt Obedience which Individuals owe to the public Voice, this Oration was composed and delivered in Sickness: In the same sentiment I consent to the Publication of it.?

        "L'Usurier". Der Wucherer.

      . Feder in Rot und Braun, grau, braun und rot laviert, links unten signiert "Göz Inv. et del.", im Unterrand betitelt, auf Bütten. 20,6:14,3 cm. Die untere Blattkante etwas unregelmäßig geschnitten.. Ursprünglich Jurist und als solcher bis 1779 in Wien im Staatsdienst angestellt, betrieb Göz hier, wohl unter dem Einfluß von H.F. Füger (1751-1818), intensive Malstudien. 1779-1783 war er in München ansässig und malte dort Bildnisse z.B. von Kurfürst Karl Theodor von der Pfalz und dem Schauspieler F.L. Schröder (als Hamlet). Anschließend ging er nach Augsburg, kehrte jedoch 1785 vorübergehend nach München zurück und zog 1791 nach Regenburg, wo er verstarb. Neben seiner malerischen Tätigkeit war er als Graphiker, Kupferstecher sowie Schriftsteller v.a. für das Theater tätig, denen er auch als Direktor vorstand. Während seines mehrjährigen Aufenthaltes in Augsburg veröffentlichte er u.a. 1785 eine 100-Blatt-Folge Radierungen unter dem Titel "Excercises d'Imagination de differ. Caracteres et Formes humaines". Wahrscheinlich handelt es sich bei dem vorliegenden Blatt um eine Vorzeichnung zu dieser Folge.

Good copy.We can not let Belloy as a great playwright despite the success of his plays, especially the incredible national and popular success of the Siege of Calais. Yet the value of this edition of the theater and the world of letters in the eighteenth is important. Every part of the author is indeed accompanied by many elements, prefaces, memoirs, letters, notes and research that explain not only the public reception, but also quarrels with the party of philosophers, support and disavowal of Voltaire. As a writer, trying to resurrect Belloy classical tragedy, his essay on the tragedy of public taste then reflected (Gluck had set to music Racine in his opera Iphigénie en Tauride) approached; classical tragedy became in the second half of the eighteenth nationalist literary model, yet contemporary style of the invention of a new theater, the Diderot.

        America divided into her principal States .. "L'Amerique divisée en ses proncipales Etats Assujettie aux Observations Astronomiques Par Le Sr Janvier Geographe

      Americas: Venice, Remondini, 1779. Copper engraved map of the continent of America from Santini's "Atlas universel dressé sur les meilleures cartes modernes". Original outline colour; verso blank. The map after Janvier shows the Americas with various discoveries noted: Davis land, discovered in 1687 is shown, along with Quiros' discoveries in 1605. The entry to the Sea of the West supposedly discovered by Juan De Fuca in 1591 and Martin D'Aguilar in 1603 is noted quite prominently and inaccurately. The title cartouche to upper right is totally new, it depicts a river filled with unusual beaver dams with pine and palm trees, and has been moved from the lower left. Dark impression; some light soiling to blank margins. Francois [Francesco] Santini was an Italian cartographer and map publisher based in Venice, who re-issued the works of Robert de Vaugondy, Homann's Heirs and De L'Isle. Cartography in Italy was then at a rather low ebb, so Santini, essentially a publisher rather than a map-maker modelled his work on two of the leading practitioners of cartography in Europe, the French map-makers Gilles and Didier Robert de Vaugondy and their "Atlas Universel" first published in 1758 and running to many editions; its commercial success led Santini, to commission a new set of plates, published between 1776-84, being almost exact copies of the original French maps to which were added new maps of Italy for the home market. Janvier, Jean Denis [Robert]1746 ?" 1776 Was a cartographer active in Paris between 1746 and 1776 Jean Janvier (1746 ?" 1776) produced a series of maps in the later half of the century. While there is some confusion about his Christian name, his maps usually were inscribed "Le Sieur Janvier". He is best known for his collaboration with engraver Jean Lattre for an "Atlas moderne ou collection de cartes sur toutes les parties du globe terrestre par plusieurs auteurs ... Paris: Latte & Delalain, ." first released in 1762 and in several later editions some by C. F. Delamarche and by Chez Remondini. Remondini (fl. c. 1657 - 1861) were a family of printers who worked originally based in Bassano del Grappa, near Venice. Giovanni Antonio Remondini (1634-1711), the family patriarch, was born in Padua in 1634. In 1657, he took a home the main square of Bassano where he opened a shop drapes, wool, silk and iron tools. He also sold woodcuts of saints which proved popular with local farmers who believed they bought spiritual protection. When Giovanni died in 1711 his printing business fell into the hands of his son, Joseph Remondini. In 1750 Joseph expended the family business into Venice proper. Having several paper factories established by Giovanni Antonio, the Remondini were in a position to undercut competitors in Venice. The Remondini employed a number of talented engravers, including Paolo Santini, an Abbot who specialized in sacred images as well as cartography. Their corpus includes several beautifully produced atlases, though, cartographically speaking, little in the way of original work. The family fell into decline following the Napoleonic invasions, finally closing their doors in 1861 Americas America as Continent Mer du Ouest

Canals y Martí, Juan Pablo (¿-1786) Químico español nacido en fecha incierta a comienzos del s. XVIII en Barcelona y fallecido en 1786. Fue el hijo de Juan Pablo Canals, hombre acaudalado que en 1738 estableció en Barcelona una fábrica de indianas, a cuyo frente puso a técnicos extranjeros. Criado en este ambiente, Canals adquirió una notable formación química y se interesó por el perfeccionamiento de los tintes; una de sus preocupaciones primeras fue la de evitar las importaciones de materias primas, que por su elevado precio restaban competitividad a los manufacturados catalanes. Encontrándose en Madrid en 1760, como representante de las fábricas de Cataluña, fue comisionado por la Junta General de Comercio, Moneda y Minas para que dictaminara sobre los problemas de cultivo y comercio de la rubia o granza, que había hecho crisis en la tradicional zona productora de Valladolid. La notable labor que realizó Canals en este terreno permitió un florecimiento del sector que convirtió a España en un país exportador. Este éxito significó el comienzo de una actividad que le retuvo por muchos años en Madrid, donde inicialmente fue inspector de agricultura y comercio y más tarde director general de los tintes del reino. Pese a ello, Canals pudo seguir sus estudios acerca de los tintes, entre otros sobre la cochinilla y el color púrpura que se extrae de los moluscos, que dio a la estampa en diversas publicaciones. Perteneció a la Academia de San Fernando de Madrid y a la Real Conferencia Física de Barcelona; en esta última fue director de la sección de agricultura (1766) y se le nombró profesor de dicha disciplina, aunque su continuada estancia en Madrid fue causa de fuertes tensiones.

        Kanga shinan [trans. A Guide to Chinese Painting]

      Numerous full-page or double-page woodcuts. 31 folding leaves; 36 folding leaves. Two vols. 8vo, orig. wrappers (wrappers wormed & a little worn), orig. block printed title labels on upper covers, new stitching. Kyoto: 1779. First edition of this instruction manual for landscape painting and one of the artist's four most important works. According to Chibbett, Tatebe (1719-74), was perhaps the most talented of Yuhi's pupils. He was "sent by an Edo patron to Nagasaki to study painting under Yuhi. By this time Ryotai was already an authority of Japanese literature, particularly waka poetry, on which he wrote more than one book. Despite his inclination toward native literature, he was enormously attracted to the Chinese painting styles of Shen and Yuhi, and also studied several other Chinese painters including Li Yung-yun while in Nagasaki. He was not a prolific illustrator, but the four works by which he is best known were all of outstanding quality...With rare exceptions, most of his illustrations were in black and white, and he was especially skillful at using graded ink washes to achieve effects."-Chibbett, The History of Japanese Printing and Book Illustration, p. 224. Internally, a fine set. WorldCat puts this under Takebe. ❧ Brown, Block Printing & Book Illustration in Japan, p. 115-"The first editions of his books...were printed on the Chinese toshi paper, and are not often found now." Hillier, The Art of the Japanese Book, I, pp. 265-66-"Kanga Shinan, 'A Guide to Chinese Painting', 1779, is a posthumously published work...It is more explicitly a teaching manual, we are back once more in the drawing-class, and there is a great deal that is dry and pedagogic in the prints. Yet is was obviously a very much used book, and further editions were called for in 1802 and 1818. The most remarkable tribute to its reputation came from the artist Kawamura Bumpo, who, when in 1810 he came to publish his own book of instruction...entitled it Kanga Shinan Nihen, 'A Guide to Chinese Painting, Second Part,' clearly implying that he wished it to be seen as a sequel to Kanyosai's work." .

Robert de Vaugondy Gilles Robert de Vaugondy (1688?"1766), also known as Le Sieur or Monsieur Robert, and his son, Didier Robert de Vaugondy (c.1723?"1786), were leading cartographers in France during the 18th century. Gilles and Didier Robert De Vaugondy produced their maps and terrestrial globes working together as father and son. In some cases it is uncertain whether Gilles or Didier made a given map; Gilles often signed maps as M.Robert, while Didier commonly signed his maps as Robert de Vaugondy, or added fils or filio after his name. In 1757, Gilles and Didier Robert De Vaugondy published the "Atlas Universel." Remondini (fl. c. 1657 - 1861) were a family of printers who worked originally based in Bassano del Grappa, near Venice.

        THE EXAMINATION OF JOSEPH GALLOWAY, Esq; Late Speaker of the House of Assembly of Pennsylvania. Before the House of Commons, in a committee on the American Papers. With Explanatory Notes.

      London, J. Wilkie, 1779.FIRST EDITION, 1779, 8vo, approximately 210 x 125 mm, 8¼ x 4¾ inches, pages: [2], 1 - 85, bound in half morocco over marbled sides, gilt dividing lines, gilt lettering to spine with gilt motif and rules at head and tail, marbled endpapers. Tail of spine very slightly chipped, upper hinge cracked but holding firmly, gilt lettering on spine slightly worn, corners slightly rubbed, title page lightly foxed, originally published as a pamphlet with stab holes showing in inner margins. A very good copy of the first edition. Reprinted the following year in London, there was no American edition until 1855. Joseph Galloway (1731?1803) was a prominent loyalist during the American Revolution. He was born at West River, Maryland and moved with his father to Pennsylvania in 1740, where he received a liberal schooling. He studied law, was admitted to the bar and began practice in Philadelphia. Galloway was a member of the Pennsylvania House of Representatives from 1757 - 1775 and served as Speaker of the House from 1766 - 1774. He was a member of the Continental Congress in 1774, where he proposed a compromise plan for Union with Great Britain which would provide the colonies with their own parliament subject to the crown. He signed the nonimportation agreement, but was opposed to independence of the thirteen colonies and remained loyal to the King. In December of 1776, Galloway joined the British General Howe and accompanied him on his capture of Philadelphia. During the British occupation, he was appointed Superintendent of Police, and headed the civil government. When the British withdrew, he went with them, and, in 1778, he moved to England. That same year, the Pennsylvania General Assembly convicted him of high treason and confiscated his estates. In 1779 he was examined before the House of Commons on the conduct of the war in America, and made accusations against the British commander, claiming that the failure of the British was because of General Howe's incompetence. See A Dictionary of Books Relating to America by Joseph Sabin, Volume 1, Galloway, column 136, 26427. MORE IMAGES ATTACHED TO THIS LISTING, ALL ZOOMABLE. POSTAGE AT COST.
