(Beilagen), VIII, 434 S., IV, 178 S. (Beilagen). Papbände der Zeit. - Carl Johann Joachim Friedrich Edler Herr und Freiherr von Plotho (1780 - 1820), königlich-preußischer Oberstleutnant der Infanterie sowie Militärhistoriker und Schriftsteller. In seinem hier vorliegenden vierteiligen Hauptwerk beschreibt er die Befreiungskriege unter militärischen Gesichtspunkten in allen Einzelheiten, so dass sich die täglichen Truppenbewegungen nachverfolgen lassen. Seine Beilagen enthalten wertvolles familienkundliches Material, aber auch formationsgeschichtliche Details. Da die letzte gedruckte Rangliste der preußischen Armee schon 1806 veröffentlicht wurde, gibt das Werk auch Aufschluss über das neue Offizierskorps, das durch die Heeresreform geschaffen wurde (Einführung des Krümpersystems und die Gründung der Landwehr durch Scharnhorst und Gneisenau). Einbände berieben und bestoßen. Innen stellenweise stockfleckig doch wohlerhalten.

        [Battle of Martinique Combat de la Dominique reported in] The London Gazette Extraordinary Thursday, May 25, 1780

      [London]: Thomas Harrison, 1780. First edition. Removed. Very good, with minor wear to edges and margins, partial inked stamp on corner.. [3 pp.]. The first British report of the April 17th, 1780 naval battle near Martinique, West Indies between the British forces, including 20 ships of the line, led by Sir George Rodney and the French Squadron, with 23 ships of the line, led by Comte de Guichen. 470 were killed, 860 wounded, and a number of ships badly damaged. The French plans to attack and seize Jamaica did not succeed, but they did manage to avert a disaster and turn the battle into a draw, though you might not be able to tell that from the British report attributed to Captain Samuel Uvedale of the Ajax, whom Rodney had dispatched with the news of his victory. "The reality was much different, and deprived of what he had expected to be a glorious victory Rodney vented his wrath upon his subordinates whilst saving praise only for Captains Bowyer, Young, Molloy, Houlton and Douglas who received certificates commending their actions. Such was the veracity of his dispatch home, including comments to the effect that 'the British flag was not supported' that the first lord of the Admiralty, Lord Sandwich, felt constrained to edit parts before releasing it to the public in England" (Richard Hiscocks: The Battle of Martinique -17 April 1780 at "MoreThanNelson). In addition to the description, includes a list of the line of battle and the names of killed and wounded officers.

        Histoir de la decouverte des Mondes nouveau et inconue

      Artist: Bonne Rigobert ca ; issued in: Paris; date: ca1780 - - technic: Copper print; - colorit: original colored; - condition: Very good; - size (in cm): 29 x 45; - description: Map shows the north and sout pole with description; - vita of the artist: Rigobert Bonne (1727?1795) was one of the most important cartographers of the late 18th century.In 1773 Bonne succeeded Jacques Nicolas Bellin as Royal Cartographer to France in the office of the Hydrographer at the Depôt de la Marine. Working in his official capacity, Bonne compiled some of the most detailed and accurate maps of the period. Bonne?s work represents an important step in the evolution of the cartographic ideology away from the decorative work of the 17th and early 18th century towards a more detail oriented and practical aesthetic. With regard to the rendering of terrain Bonne maps bear many stylistic similarities to those of his predecessor, Bellin. However, Bonne maps generally abandon such common 18th century decorative features such as hand coloring, elaborate decorative cartouches, and compass roses.While mostly focusing on coastal regions, the work of Bonne is highly regarded for its detail, historical importance, and overall aesthetic appeal.

        The History and Lives of the most Notorious Pirates, and their Crews ... the third edition

      London: Sabine and Son, 1780. 12mo. (7 x 4 inches). 96pp. 15 woodcut full-page illustrations. Publisher's wrappers, upper wrapper with a large woodcut portrait of Capt. Martel (repeated from the illustration on p. 27), lower wrapper with publisher's adsScarce 18th-century, illustrated chapbook edition of Johnson's "Lives of Pirates"This fascinating work, first published in 1724, was an instant success. The work remained in print in various languages throughout the 18th and 19th centuries - with over 30 editions being published before 1900. It now serves as one of the most important contemporary printed sources for information about the British pirates of the first decades of the 18th century. It includes chapters on all the great ones: Captain Avery, Edward Blackbeard Teach, Steed Bonnet, Bartholomew Roberts, Henry Morgan and others. Also includes chapters on two female pirates, Mary Read and Anne Bonny."This work is considered a sequel to Exquemelin's Bucaniers of America, and most of the pirates it records operated in the West Indies and American waters ... Nothing is known of the author who called himself Captain Johnson, and the name may be an assumed one. Beginning in 1724, and continuing to the present day, books on pirates have appeared under his name. There is no evidence to support the idea that Johnson was an actual pirate, even though his accounts seem remarkably accurate. There also appears to be little substance to the coincidence that a contemporary dramatist of the same name wrote a play, The successful pyrate, about a popular hero Captain Avery. J. R. Moore identified Captain Johnson as Daniel Defoe ... , but this was contested by P. N. Furbank and W. R. Owens in 1988, as well as by David Cordingly in a 1998 edition of Johnson. If the author was Defoe, it is interesting to note that he also wrote an elaborate review of the work" (Hill).Others, including his bibliographer Moore, have attributed the work to Daniel Defoe based on the internal relationship to his works of proven authorship (cf. J.R. Moore, Defoe in the pillory. 1939. p. 126-188). The National Maritime Museum notes that there is "considerable evidence' to suggest that 'Johnson may well have been a nom de plume used by Daniel Defoe" (Piracy & Privateering p. 83).This edition not recorded by ESTC and with only one example in OCLC.

Dorsi a nervetti decorati in oro con titolo e tomaison in oro entro doppio tassello bicromo ai dorsi. Dentelle interne in oro, sguardie marmorizzate. Alcune firme e timbri ottocenteschi di privato possesso. 22 tavole fuori testo, di cui 20 raffiguranti vedute e 2 grandi carte ("Carte du lac de Geneve et des montagnes adiacentes" e "Carte de la partie des Alpes qui avoisine le Mont Blanc"), il tutto inciso su rame f.t. da Geissler, Töpffer e Wexelberg da disegni del Bourrit e del nipote dell'autore, Théodore de Saussure; le incisioni riproducono il corpus iconografico dell'edizione originale in-4°. Numerose tabelle a p. pag. e 3 tabelle ripiegate f.t. Mancanza per asportazione di antica firma all'occhietto del primo vol. Ottimo esemplare. "Mixed edition" (prima e seconda edizione in-8°) di una delle opere più importanti dell'intera letteratura alpina. Il primo volume è nell'edizione di Louis Fauche Borel del 1803, il secondo è impresso da Samuel Fauche nel 1780, il terzo e il quarto dal Borel nel 1803, il quinto, il sesto, il settimo e l'ottavo dal Borel nel 1796. I "Voyages dans les Alpes" sono densissimi di innovative osservazioni geologiche, climatologiche, mineralogiche e di gustose notazioni di costume, e costituiscono il primo tentativo davvero approfondito di ricerca scientifica sulle Alpi. In essi si stabiliscono tra l'altro, per la prima volta, l'esatta altezza del Monte Bianco e la progressiva diminuizione di pressione in rapporto all'altitudine, con osservazioni sull'uomo e sugli animali. Horace Bénédict de Saussure (Conches, Ginevra, 1740-1799) fu eminentemente un fisico ed un geologo, ma si occupò anche di geografia, meteorologia ed altre branche scientifiche, dedicandosi in seguito alle ricognizioni sul campo nella catena delle Alpi, che attraversò 14 volte per i diversi valichi, traendone un'ingentissima messe di documentazione scientifica di cui i "Voyages" costituiscono la grande sintesi. Pioniere dell'alpinismo scientifico, ascese (terzo in assoluto) la vetta del Monte Bianco il 3 agosto del 1787, ripetendo la scalata l'anno seguente, restando 17 giorni sul Colle del Gigante e, nel 1789, scalando anche il Monte Rosa e, nel 1792, il Teodulo e il Piccolo Cervino. Perret, 3911: "Un des principaux ouvrages jamais écrits sur la chaîne des Alpes. Il contient de nombreux développements concernant la flore, la géologie et les glaciers, mais relate également les tentatives d'ascension du Mont-Blanc, les premières ascensions dont celle de Saussure en 1787, ainsi que le sejour que celui-ci fit au col du Géant.

        Antique Map-ENGLAND-SCOTLAND-IRELAND-SEA CHART-Bonne-Lattre-ca. 1780

      1780 - Antique print, titled: 'Petit Neptune Anglois ou Carte Marine des Cotes d'Angleterre, d'Ecosse et d'Irlande.' - A map of the coasts of England, Scotland and Ireland, with depth soundings and coastal towns indicated. With an inset map of the Shetland Islands, and a large decorative cartouche. Description: Source unknown, to be determined. Provenance: With two collection stamps on the front: "Depot General de la Guerre" and "Depot des Cart. Pl. et Journ. de la Marine".Artists and Engravers: Made by 'Jean Lattre' after 'Rigobert Bonne'. Jean Lattre was an 18th. c. French Royal engraver, editor and merchant. Rigobert Bonne (1727-1795) was one of the most important cartographers of the late 18th century. In 1773 he succeeded Jacques Bellin as Royal Cartographer to France in the office of the Hydrographer at the Depot de la Marine. Working in his official capacity Bonne compiled some of the most detailed and accurate maps of the period. Bonne's work represents an important step in the evolution of the cartographic ideology away from the decorative work of the 17th and early 18th century towards a more detail oriented and practical aesthetic. With regard to the rendering of terrain Bonne maps bear many stylistic similarities to those of his predecessor, Bellin. However, Bonne maps generally abandon such common 18th century decorative features such as hand coloring, elaborate decorative cartouches, and compass roses. While mostly focusing on coastal regions, the work of Bonne is highly regarded for its detail, historical importance, and overall aesthetic appeal. Engraving with contemporary hand colouring on hand laid (verge) paper. Anonymous. Very good, given age. Original middle fold (as issued). Rear blank. Some creases in the and left right margins, around the middle fold. Scattered small wormholes. Some creasing. Sheet overall lightly browned. Two ink stamps in the image area.

        John André

      , n.d. n.d.. Piece of granite, 3” x 2” x 0.5”. Fine condition. From the John S. Reigart Collection of Historical American Relics.Attached to a card with string. A label was then affixed to the granite upon which Reigart neatly penned, “Cell of / Major Andre / A.D. 1780.” The card originally measured 3.25” x 4”, but the upper right has been torn off. Letters and words missing are in brackets. Reigart wrote on the card, “Piece of [the Cell] / in which Maj[or Andre] / was confined dur[ing the] / American Revoluti[on] / (at Fort Putnam, West [Point] / New Yor[k].”John S. Reigart was born in 1833 or 1834 in New York City where he resided for most of his life. By occupation, he was a bank clerk with very precise penmanship which is evident on his identification card and label. During the mid and late 19th century Reigart assembled a comprehensive collection of relics from every period of America’s history. He was clearly aware of the importance of provenance of all the pieces in his collection and included detailed documentation in the form of period ink script notes, most of which he attached to the actual artifacts. About ten years ago, Reigart’s collection was discovered in the estate of a deceased Connecticut book dealer.
