        ANNO REGNI GEORGII II. REGIS MAGNAE BRITANNIAE, FRANCIAE, & HIBERNIAE, VICESIMO SECUMNDO. AT THE PARLIAMENT BEGUN AND HOLDEN AT WESTMINSTER, THE TENTH DAY OF NOVEMBER, ANNO DOMINI 1747.AN ACT FOR AMENDING, EXPLAINING, AND REDUCING INTO ONE ACT OF PARLIAMENT, THE LAWS RELATING TO THE GOVERNMENT OF HIS MAJESTY'S SHIPS, VESSELS, AND FORCES BY SEA.

      London: Printed by Charles Eyre and William Strahan, 1780. - 62pp. Small quarto. Full dark blue morocco, gilt, gilt inner dentelles; cover embellished with gilt-tooled Star, Garter, Royal Motto, and royal initials of King George III. Light wear to extremities. Multiple bookplates and remarkable provenance, as detailed below. Very good. In a custom clamshell box, gilt leather label. Two Acts of Parliament concerning the Navy and Naval Affairs which have been specially bound for King George III. The first act, passed under George II, explains and condenses several Acts of Parliament into one clearer and more manageable act. The second act, paginated continuously but with its own titlepage, is an act to explain and amend the previous act. We locate one copy on OCLC, at the Society of the Cincinnati. This work does not appear to be listed in the ESTC. This copy is remarkably of note due to its provenance. The binding is stamped with the arms and initials of King George III, tooled in the Star and Garter and topped with a crown. The front endpapers bear many bookplates, beginning with the bookplate of the Duke of Sussex, son of George III and the most famous book collector among his sons, with a clipping from the Sussex auction. Here it was evidently bought by his brother, the Duke of Clarence, and has his bookplate; a naval officer most of his life, he would have been particularly interested in the subject. Clarence later became William IV, and the volume passed to the First Earl of Munster, illegitimate son of William IV and his mistress Dorothy Jordan. Although he was treated well and made a member of the Privy Council by his cousin Victoria, the Earl killed himself in 1842. The volume was acquired by the 2nd Lord Stanley of Aderley, a prominent political figure and well- known collector. From the Stanley family the volume passed to another famous English book collector, Robert Hovenden, who made a fortune in the wig business and spent his profits on books. After him it was owned by Dr. Francis Gray Smart, another collector and antiquary. Sometime after Smart's death in 1913, the volume came into the hands of the great English collector Major J.R. Abbey, best remembered for his great bibliographies of English illustrated works (his collections now reside at the Yale Center for British Art). Abbey's penciled notes are on the flyleaf. This volume was sold with his remaining books and manuscripts at auction in the late 1960s. A wonderful volume with a truly stupendous provenance. OCLC 70821711.

        La Rêveuse. [The Dreamer]

      Paris, 1780. Engraving. Printed on laid paper with watermark. In good condition with the exception of being trimmed within the platemark. Some overall light foxing and some sunning where a mat was in place. Image size: 15 1/2 x 11 1/4 inches. A lovely pastoral print after the celebrated French Rococo artist François Boucher. In this handsomely composed image, Boucher depicts a pretty shepherdess who has fallen asleep, attended only by a pet goat. She seems to epitomise "sweet dreams" with her calm face, bare feet, and the flowers in her hair, at her breast and at her feet. She is the ideal that pastoral art aimed at: unsophisticated attunement with nature and we feel in her innocence, beauty and vulnerability a latent fecundity both deeply restful and rich in possibility. François Boucher (1703-1770) was one of the most versatile and influential French artists of the eighteenth century. He not only decorated palaces and private residences, but also painted portraits, landscapes, and mythological scenes; and designed opera sets, porcelains, and tapestries. He was a prolific painter and draftsman and he excelled in cabinet-sized paintings for collectors, many of which were reproduced in print in an effort to satisfy the demands of eager connoisseurs. He began his career producing reproductive engravings of Watteau's paintings, but he quickly became one of the most fashionable artists in Paris. He was favoured by the King's mistress, Madame du Pompadour, and quickly became "premier peintre" to Louis XV. Boucher depicts a pretty shepherdess who has fallen asleep. She seems to epitomise "sweet dreams". Her innocence, beauty and vulnerability seem to symbolize restful sleep and in a larger way peacefulness itself.

        INGENIOSO HIDALGO DON QUIXOTE DE LA MANCHA...Nueva Edicion, Corregida por la Real Academia Espa?ola

      Madrid: Don Joachin Ibarra, 1780. 4 volumes. The First Ibarra Edition, the most revered and beautifully illustrated and printed pressing of the most treasured work in all of Spanish literature, a monument of Spanish typography. The edition chosen by the Fathers of Seville for presentation after the defeat of Napoleon by the English. The choice of this edition as a gift in thanks for rescuing Spain from Napoleon's onslaught is of the greatest importance and suggests the esteem in which the edition was held by the people of Spain. With an engraved portrait, engraved title pages in each volume, 31 fine engraved plates and 66 charming head- and tailpieces, and a large map with Quixote's peregrinations in the first volume. Large 4to, a splendid and very beautiful binding by the firm of Simier R. du Roi, binder to the king, in the finest dark purple goatskin, adorned in gold and blind decorations, the spines titled and numbered in gold and with very rich and beautiful gold decorations in compartments, rich gold dentelles and edges. Simier's "variety and and technique were superb; he had no superior and few rivals during his career" ( Ramsden's French Bookbinders 1789-1848 ). [iv], XIV, ccvviv, 199; [iv], 418; [ii], xiv, 306; [iv], 346. This is a superb example in the most wonderful state of preservation. A magnificent binding and the most beautiful Cervantes we have ever encountered. AN EXTRAORDINARY COPY OF THE FIRST IBARRA CERVANTES. PROFUSELY AND BEAUTIFULLY ILLUSTRATED THROUGHOUT WITH THE FINEST ENGRAVINGS. PERHAPS THE MOST BEAUTIFUL AND DESIRABLE SET AVAILABLE OF THE MAGNIFICENT IBARRA EDITION. The Ibarra Edition is "the finest edition of Don Quixote that has ever been printed" (D. B. Updike). Printed for the Royal Spanish Academy in Spanish-designed types, lavishly ornamented, and containing the Prologue of the Academy, the Life of Cervantes, and a Chronological Plan and Analysis of the book, this is not only the finest edition of Cervantes, but is also a monument of European fine printing. What results from the combination of edition and presentation is a remarkable historical artifact whose position in the annals of bibliophily is perhaps unequaled except by a handful of famous books. It boils down to this: the greatest imaginative work from the Spanish mind, in its most beautiful physical manifestation. Binder to the King, Simier's "variety and and technique were superb; he had no superior and few rivals during his career" ( Ramsden's French Bookbinders 1789-1848 ). This was the edition given to one of the most famous figures in military history, in gratitude for one of the most important military operations in European history.

        [Triumph of Britannia]

      1780. Engraving. Unfinished working proof. Printed on watermarked laid paper. In excellent condition with the exception of being trimmed within the platemark on all sides. Some creases in image. Image size: 15 1/8 x 20 ½ inches. An extremely rare working proof of James Fittler's striking engraving of Britannia. James Fittler was a skilled etcher and engraver, who established a reputation as an exceptional marine engraver. His oeuvre included portraits and book illustrations but he was best known for his appealing marine scenes. Trained at the Royal Academy schools, Fittler became an associate in 1800. He was a regular exhibitor at the Academy and was appointed "Marine Engraver" to George III. This stunning image of Britannia is an excellent example of his skill and a fascinating glimpse of the etching process. This intriguing print shows a unique step in the printmaking process before an image is ready for publication. Before the image is completed the engraver has printed a trial impression to view this stage of the engraved plate. It is incredibly rare to find prints in this unfinished experimental stage. Impressions which were pulled as working proofs are unique and were almost never duplicated Dictionary of National Biography ; Benezit, Dictionnaire Des Peintres, Sculpteurs, Dessinateurs et Graveurs , Vol. 5, p. 492.

        Appendix to the comment on the petition of the British inhabitants of Bengal, Bahar, and Orissa, to Parliament. Containing memorials and authentick papers.

      [London, ca. 1780]. Five parts issued and bound together, 4to, (iv) + 24 + 8 + 8 + 8 + 8pp., recent marbled boards lettered on spine Rare first appearance of these papers presenting grievances with regard to legal status of British officials and native people living under the rule of the East India Company. The papers comprise: Authentick papers relating to the right of trial by jury in civil cases at Calcutta in Bengal: The memorial of the British inhabitants of Bengal, Bahar, and Orissa, to the Governor-General and Council: Letter from George Bogle, Esq; to the Governor-General and Council at Fort-William, resigning his office of Commissioner of Law-Suits to the Company: Translation of a Persian* petition from the native inhabitants of the Subah Azeemabad to the King, and the Translation of a petition from the renters or farmers of the Patna province, stating the innumerable hardships they suffer by being made liable to the jurisdiction of the Supreme Court of Judicature at Calcutta.> The British expatriate civil society had begun to take shape in the late eighteenth century. The Regulating Act> of 1773 established a supreme court in each of the presidency towns and laid down rules for trial by jury, but only in criminal cases. The white community petitioned parliament in 1780 for juries in civil cases. ?'The European community in India was treated as an extension of the military. Public meetings were prohibited in 1807 and press censorship was introduced in 1799 and again in 1823. Europeans could not hold extensive property outside the presidency towns and they had to apply for a passport if they wished to travel beyond the outskirts of Calcutta. Their licences to reside in India could also be removed at the Company?'s discretion, as James Silk Buckingham found out to his cost. Commentators such as Malcolm apparently failed to realize the irony of a situation in which the Company acknowledged that there was a British public that could sit on juries, but refused to admit that there was an enlightened and informed public that warranted a periodical press that was not closely scrutinized by Company officials?' (Joseph Hardwick, Vestry politics and the Emergence of a Reform ?'Public?' in Calcutta,> 1813?-36, published online by the Institute of Historical Research at the University of London).

Contemporary ownership inscription on titlepage, a few contemporary notations. Second "S" in "Address" on half title lacking, some paper damage to the "E" as well. Light soiling, foxing, and wear.

After the rejection of the 1778 Massachusetts constitution, the document was entirely revised, largely by John Adams, and offered to the public in 1780. Adams and others then lobbied hard for its acceptance, and this is the opening gun.

        Document Signed (Br. Hidalgo), on paper, in Spanish. Folio, 1 p. Bound in a dossier of documents relating to the execution of the provisions of the will of Augustina Velázquez. [with] A number of other collateral documents relating to the Condes de Vivanco. On paper, in Spanish. Mexico City, Real de Bolaños, Aguas Clientes, Valladolid (now Morelia), and elsewhere in Mexico. Folio (31 cm, 12.25") and smaller. => Approximately 350 ff.

      No place [mining region of Real de Bolaños or Aguas Calientes] no date [1780] In 1780 Augustina Velázquez died and her will provided, among other things, for a huge number of masses to be said for her. Subsidy for the masses was spread among the priests in the mining region where she had lived — Real de Bolaños and Aguas Calientes. Those receiving sums of money signed receipts, and among the dozens was a newly ordained minister who signed his receipt "Br. Hidalgo." The young bachiller became famous in 1810 for initiating the uprising that began the eleven-year struggle for Mexican Independence. => This is a fine, extremely early example of Father Hidalgo's signature. The woman who provided the money for the above mentioned masses was the wife of Antonio de Vivanco (also spelled Bibanco) Gutiérrez and mother of Antonio Guadalupe de Vivanco, the first two Condes de Vivanco. Cambridge scholar David Brading credits Antonio de Vivanco with restoring the mining region of Bolaños to prosperity in the early 1770s, following the region's sharp decline in silver ore production during the first two-thirds of the 18th century — whereby he became very wealthy. In addition to payment for masses for her soul, Doña Augustina's will provides for large sums of money to be spent on construction work on the chapel of Our Lady of Guadalupe in the bishopric of Guadalajara. The paperwork, including receipts, associated with the distribution of her largesse is weighty and detailed. Among the collateral documents in this offering are copies of the last wills and testaments of Antonio de Vivanco Gutiérrez (1796), Augustina Velázquez (1780), and Antonio Guadalupe de Vivanco (1800); the inventory of the younger Vivanco's massive estate (1801); and a marvelous calligraphic manuscript in which the bishop of Guadalajara grants a special privilege to Vivanco the elder. All are notarially certified copies of the originals. All documents in very good condition, sewn, in contemporary vellum bindings.

Wuest (1741-1821) in Zürich. 1773 hielt er sich in Basel, 1774 in Straßburg auf und war anschließend bis 1778 für J.A.B. Nothnagels (1729-1804) Tapetenfabrik in Frankfurt am Main tätig. Um sich künstlerisch weiterzubilden, besuchte er 1778 die Akademie in Düsseldorf, 1783/1784 die in Amsterdam. Anschließend hielt er sich bis 1789 in Düsseldorf auf, wo er sich verheiratete und zum Mitglied der Kunstakademie ernannt wurde. Seit 1789 war er wieder in Zürich ansässig, wo er als geschätzter Landschaftsmaler verstarb. Die Zeichnung entstand noch während Hubers Düsseldorfer Studienzeit in den Jahren 1778-1782.

Die Tafeln können einzelnen Werk nicht mehr zugeordnet werden. - Chodowiecki, (1726 -1801), ging nach Berlin 1743, um im Quincailleriegeschäft eines Onkels zu arbeiten, dem er auch Miniaturen als Schmuck für allerlei Gegenstände lieferte. Er erlernte die Emaillemalerei; erst sehr spät, 1754, machte er sich selbständig, um eine Künstlerlaufbahn einzuschlagen. Dieser Entschluß im reiferen Alter bewirkte eine Unabhängigkeit des künstlerischen Denkens, das ihn den Berliner Aufklärern nahebringen sollte ... 1757 entstanden die ersten Radierversuche und möglicherweise auch die ersten Ölgemälde, für die er ein kleines Format bevorzugte, Figurenszenen mit häuslichen Motiven, die er durch gezeichnete Studien vorbereitete... Mit Illustrationen zu Lessings Minna von Barnhelm (1769) schlug er den Weg ein, der ihn vor allem berühmt machte und ihm die Bekanntschaft mit vielen zeitgenössischen Autoren bescherte. Von seinen 2075 Radierungen auf 978 Platten sind die weitaus meisten Illustrationen für Romane, Schauspiele und Kalender, oft mit moralisierendem und pädagogischem Inhalt...

        Vida, y Martyrio del siervo de dios Pedro Borguny Mallorquin, martyrisado en Argel a los 30 Agosto 1654. Dividida en dos partes.

      En Roma, por Miquel Angel Barbiellini a la Minerva, 1780. - in-4. 1f. XVI. 143pp. Vélin de l'époque, pièce de titre. Edition Originale de la première biographie de Pedro Borguny (1628-1654), illustre figure mallorquine du 17e siècle. Originaire de Palma, ce fils de bonne famille était parti à l'aventure, dès son plus jeune âge, à bord des navires marchands qui sillonaient la Méditerranée; fait prisonnier par des pirates arabes, il fut réduit en esclavage une première fois en Alger où il passa trois années avant d'être libéré une première fois grâce aux efforts de son père. Revenu à Mallorca, il se maria mais, devenu veuf peu après et forcé de quitter son île natale en raison de son implication dans une rixe, il s'installa à Valencia comme négociant de tissus, reprenant ses voyages maritimes et caressant l'espoir de libérer ses anciens compagnons d'esclavage encore retenus prisonniers à Oran. C'est en organisant une expédition de libération qu'il fut à nouveau fait prisonnier en Alger. Après plusieurs années de captivité, menacé d'être envoyé à Constantinople et de perdre tout espoir d'être libéré, Borguny céda aux instances de ses geôliers et il se convertit à l'islam mais quelques mois plus tard, pris de remords, il renia publiquement sa conversion auprès du Dey d'Alger. Il mourut en martyr, brûlé vif, le 30 août 1654. Ses reliques, ramenées à Paris par les soins d'un religieux présent au moment du supplice, furent rapatriées à Palma de Mallorca en 1750 et la présente biographie fut rédigée d'après les documents consultés par l'auteur à Rome, où il la fit imprimer. Le feuillet de dédicace ("Dedicase este libro al muy ilustre Ayuntamiento de la Ciudad de Palma y Reyno de Mallorca") semble avoir été rajouté après l'impression et ne figure pas dans tous les exemplaires, mais il est bien présent ici. Rousseurs éparses. Bon exemplaire dans son vélin d'origine, probablement italien. Palau, 196029 (qui ne décrit pas le f. de dédicace). [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

        A South-East View of the City of Boston in North America

      London: Printed for Carington Bowles, 1780. Engraving, on laid paper, full period hand colouring. Linen backed at a very early date. The third state of this important early view of Boston, based on an original drawing by William Burgis. "This interesting view of Boston from the bay, showing the waterfront with the Long Wharf in the foreground, was apparently based on the first state of the 1723 Burgis prospect of the New England city. When John Carwitham prepared the engraving, he added the Old South Meeting House and Hollis Street Meeting house, both built in 1731. The spire of Christ Church seen in the Burgis view -- then an architectural projection rather than a reality -- was retained by Carwitham even though the spire would not be built until about 1740" (Deák p.53). Brightly hand-colored in a thick gouache, the engraving was intended by Bowles as part of a series of prints to be used in a peep show or optical viewer. Operating one of the largest print "warehouses" in London, Bowles capitalized on the interest in the American colonies brought about by the Revolution and issued several such views of American cities. This is the third state of the Boston view, with the number 34 added to the plate just to the left of the title. Deák Picturing America I,86; cf. J. Winsor Memorial History of Boston II,pp.531-2; Stokes and Haskall American Historical Prints p. 14; Cresswell 496.

        Grotta di Pozzuoli

      1780. Gouache painted on board. Very good condition apart from a few barely visible water stains in the bottom margin. A charming view of the famous Crypta Neapolitana, an ancient architectural marvel in the Italian town of Pozzuoli, near Naples. Designed by the architect Cocceio during the reign of Augustus, the grotto was a heavily trafficked tunnel used to facilitate trade and transportation between Naples, Pozzuoli and Baiae. Legend has it that the ancient poet Virgil, author of The Aeneid , The Bucolics , and The Georgics and a resident of the environs of Naples, magically created the grotto in the Hill of Posillipo for the benefit of the town's citizens. Situated directly above it is the Tomb of Virgil, the fabled columbarium where the poet was allegedly buried, which is commemorated by an imposing funerary monument located to the left of the cove's mouth. The façade of this monument, which is visible on the left side of this beautiful work, also served as an epitaph on which Sebastiano Bartolo recorded information discovered in his analysis of the water of the two thermal springs (Astroni's Bath) he found in the area in 1668. An impressive feat of Roman engineering, the Crypta Neapolitana has been depicted by many artists through the centuries, among them Seneca and Alexandre Dumas.

Wohl Detailstudie für ein Gemälde. „Bürkel hat seine Zeichnungen äußerst selten signiert. Eingereiht in seine große Motivsammlung, waren sie ihm vor allem Hilfsmittel, auf die er bei der Komposition eines Ölbildes zurückgreifen konnte. Zwei Themenkreise interessierten ihn dabei besonders: die Alpen und Italien." (Vgl. Ausst. Katalog: Ideal und Natur. Aquarelle und Zeichnungen im Lenbachhaus 1780-1850. München / Saarbrücken, 1993/94, Nr. 66). Bürkel war im wesentlichen Autodidakt und beteiligte sich bereits seit 1825 an den Ausstellungen des Münchner Kunstvereins. 1830/32 war er mit H. Heinlein (1803-1885) in Italien und später noch einmal 1837 und 1853/54. Er machte zahlreiche Wanderungen durch Oberbayern und Tirol, um das Volksleben zu studieren.

        Contes.

      Paris: Daniel Jacomet,, [c.1940s]. Two volumes, folio. Finely bound in contemporary full olive morocco, spines gilt-ruled in compartments with raised bands and titles direct, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. 64 sepia drawings facsimile plates, and 57 floral designs in the text, as well as coloured borders throughout and the manuscript reproduced in facsimile. Spines sunned, excellent condition. First edition thus, one of 190 privately produced and distributed facsimile copies by Daniel Jacomet of a unique manuscript copy of the Contes de La Fontaine illustrated by Fragonard. The illustrations were done by Fragonard in about 1780 during the artist's journey to Italy with M. Bergeret, a "Fermier General". The first draft was a series of 44 pencil drawings, now in the Morgan Library. The final illustrations, consisting of a series of 64 magnificent sepia drawings and 57 floral designs, were given to Bergeret and inserted by him into a beautiful manuscript of the Contes de La Fontaine. This unique copy, after passing through many hands (the second blank of the first volume bears, in facsimile, manuscript evidence of this provenance history), finally came into the possession of M. Henry Beraldi (1849-1931) the French bibliophile and publisher. This copy, in volume one, bears an example of Beraldi's ex-libris, which we suspect was present in all copies. On his death the manuscript was purchased by the Ville de Paris. In order to defray the cost of this purchase, the Ville de Paris commissioned Daniel Jacomet, the finest producer of art facsimiles then working, to reproduce the 190 copies in facsimile. The entire edition was sold to individual subscribers and museums, and never offered for public sale. Each volume bears a typewritten leaf attesting to the background history of this book's production. This copy comes from the library, though unmarked as such, of Patrick Macleod, who was the director of the Trianon Press (for whom Jacomet also worked), which operated from France and is most famous for its fine colour facsimiles of the original books produced by William Blake.

        A chart of the bay and harbour of Pensacola in the province of West Florida surveyed by George Gauld A.M.

      London: J.F.W. Des Barres in the 'Atlantic Neptune', 1780. Copper-engraved sea chart with aquatint, and details heightened in original colour. A very rare and highly important sea chart of Pensacola Harbor from 'The Atlantic Neptune,' the finest marine atlas of North America's east coast, produced during the Revolutionary War. This superbly drafted map features the magnificent natural harbor of Pensacola on the Florida panhandle. Des Barres based this rendering on manuscript survey maps by the British military engineer George Gauld. The town, with its fort and carefully laid out streets is featured in the left-centre of the map. Another settlement "Campbell Town" is located further up the harbour toward the entrance of the "Scambia" (Escambia) River. The borders of various land grants are demarcated, and the countryside is elegantly detailed with aquatint features, and coloured in a light brown-green wash. The chart precisely captures the features of the coast, showing how the harbor is protected by two sandy bars of land, the outer being Santa Rosa Island. The chart features a great deal of quantitative hydrographic information, and instructions to mariners are written in the lower right of the map, ensuring that it was by far the most accurate and comprehensive pilot for the harbor produced in the eighteenth-century. The present example is the second of two variants of this chart distinguished by the heightening of the townscapes in a brilliant red hue of original colour. It is important to note that the very year that this map was printed the region was caught up in the dramatic action of the Revolutionary War. The Spaniards, who had just joined the war on the American side, seized the British garrison at Fort Barrancas, and West Florida remained in their possession for the duration of the war. Joseph Frederick Wallet Des Barres was born in Switzerland, where his Huguenot ancestors had fled following the repeal of the Edict of Nantes. He studied under the great mathematician Daniel Bernoulli at the University of Basel, before immigrating to Britain where he trained at the Royal Military College, Woolwich. Upon the outbreak of hostilities with France in 1756, he joined the British Royal American Regiment as a military engineer. He came to the attention of General James Wolfe, who appointed him to join his personal detail. During this period he also worked with the legendary future explorer James Cook on a monumental chart of the St. Lawrence River. Upon the conclusion of the Seven Years War, Britain's empire in North America was greatly expanded, and this required the creation of a master atlas featuring new and accurate sea charts for use by the Royal Navy. Des Barres was enlisted to survey the coastlines of Nova Scotia, Newfoundland, and the Gulf of St. Lawrence. With these extremely accurate surveys in hand, Des Barres returned to London in 1774, where the Royal Navy charged him with the Herculean task of producing the atlas. He was gradually forwarded the manuscripts of numerous advanced surveys conducted by British cartographers in the American Colonies, Jamaica and Cuba. The result was The Atlantic Neptune , which became the most celebrated sea atlas of its era, containing the first systematic survey of the east coast of North America. Des Barres's synergy of great empirical accuracy with the peerless artistic virtue of his aquatint views, created a work that "has been described as the most splendid collection of charts, plates and views ever published" ( National Maritime Museum Catalogue ). The Neptune eventually consisted of four volumes and Des Barres's dedication to the project was so strong that often at his own expense he continually updated and added new charts and views to various editions up until 1784, producing over 250 charts and views, many appearing in several variations. All of these charts were immensely detailed, featuring both hydrographical and topographical information, such that in many cases they remained the most authoritative maps of the regions covered for several decades. Following the completion of The Neptune , Des Barres returned to Canada, where he remained for a further forty years, becoming a senior political figure and a wealthy land owner, living to the advanced age of 103.

        The New Building on Shrubs Hill

      1780. Hand-coloured engraving, printed on wove paper. Very good condition apart from some overall light soiling and a few small losses and skillfully repaired tears along the edge of the top margin. A few small surface abrasions along the exterior of the platemark. Trimmed virtually to the platemark on the right side. A beautifully coloured print of the newly constructed Fort Belvedere in Windsor Forest, Berkshire. Erected by the Duke of Cumberland in 1755, Belvedere was expanded into a hunting lodge for King George IV. The triangular turreted structure was set amidst a dense plantation of trees and overlooked Virginia Water, a man-made body of water constructed by Thomas and Paul Sandby at the behest of the Duke. Belvedere was later renovated and inhabited by Edward VIII, Prince of Wales. Brother of the celebrated artist Paul Sandby, the architect and draughtsman Thomas Sandby was an eminent artist in his own right. Essentially self-taught, he moved to London, where he assumed the position of draughtsman and personal secretary of William Augustus, Duke of Cumberland, whom he attended on his military campaigns in Scotland and the Netherlands from 1743 to 1748. On these expeditions, he made many detailed sketches of the various battles, encampments, and scenery he observed. Upon being chosen ranger of Windsor Park in 1746, Cumberland appointed Sandby deputy ranger, a position he would hold for the duration of his life. During his tenure as deputy ranger, Sandby inhabited the lower lodge and was responsible for overseeing modifications made to the park's land and any renovations to its buildings including Cumberland Lodge. He illustrated the many projects he undertook, and several of his drawings and designs were engraved and published as folios. In addition to his duties at Windsor, Sandby designed a number of houses in the adjacent neighborhood and was appointed architect and master-carpenter of his majesty's works in 1777 and 1780 respectively. Like his brother, he was an original member of the Royal Academy, where he regularly taught and lectured on architecture. Cf. Dictionary of National Biography.

        Connecticut, and Parts adjacent

      Amsterdam: Covens and Mortier and Covens Junior, 1780. Copper-engraved map, engraved by H. Klockhoff, after Bernard Romans, with original outline colour, in very good condition, period-style black and gold frame. A very rare and highly attractive map of Connecticut and Long Island This beautiful and important map was one of four of Bernard Romans' maps of various parts of the American colonies to be re-engraved and published by the renowned Dutch firm of cartographers Covens and Mortier and Covens Junior. The present map is taken from the extremely rare 1777 map currently known in only four examples. No copies of this 1780 version are recorded as having sold at auction in the past thirty years. Connecticut is shown divided into six counties, each of which is outlined in colour, with the main towns coloured in red. The beautiful vignette-cartouche containing the title (in the lower right corner) is of a naturalistically presented Connecticut village scene. Born in Holland, Bernard Romans arrived in America in 1757 and spent a number of years working in the southeast. His two large `whole sheet maps' of Florida were completed in 1774, and at about this time he moved to Hartford, Connecticut. During the Revolutionary War he served in New York on the American side. All of his maps are extremely scarce, in most cases being known by only a few copies, and it is only through re-engraved versions such as the present example that the present generation of map collectors can hope to own examples of this important American cartographer's work.

        Document Signed (Br. Hidalgo), on paper, in Spanish. Folio, 1 p. Bound in a dossier of documents relating to the execution of the provisions of the will of Augustina Velázquez. [with] A number of other collateral documents relating to the Condes de Vivanco. On paper, in Spanish. Mexico City, Real de Bolaños, Aguas Clientes, Valladolid (now Morelia), and elsewhere in Mexico. Folio (31 cm, 12.25") and smaller. => Approximately 350 ff.

      No place [mining region of Real de Bolaños or Aguas Calientes] no date [1780] In 1780 Augustina Velázquez died and her will provided, among other things, for a huge number of masses to be said for her. Subsidy for the masses was spread among the priests in the mining region where she had lived — Real de Bolaños and Aguas Calientes. Those receiving sums of money signed receipts, and among the dozens was a newly ordained minister who signed his receipt "Br. Hidalgo." The young bachiller became famous in 1810 for initiating the uprising that began the eleven-year struggle for Mexican Independence. => This is a fine, extremely early example of Father Hidalgo's signature. The woman who provided the money for the above mentioned masses was the wife of Antonio de Vivanco (also spelled Bibanco) Gutiérrez and mother of Antonio Guadalupe de Vivanco, the first two Condes de Vivanco. Cambridge scholar David Brading credits Antonio de Vivanco with restoring the mining region of Bolaños to prosperity in the early 1770s, following the region's sharp decline in silver ore production during the first two-thirds of the 18th century — whereby he became very wealthy. In addition to payment for masses for her soul, Doña Augustina's will provides for large sums of money to be spent on construction work on the chapel of Our Lady of Guadalupe in the bishopric of Guadalajara. The paperwork, including receipts, associated with the distribution of her largesse is weighty and detailed. Among the collateral documents in this offering are copies of the last wills and testaments of Antonio de Vivanco Gutiérrez (1796), Augustina Velázquez (1780), and Antonio Guadalupe de Vivanco (1800); the inventory of the younger Vivanco's massive estate (1801); and a marvelous calligraphic manuscript in which the bishop of Guadalajara grants a special privilege to Vivanco the elder. All are notarially certified copies of the originals. All documents in very good condition, sewn, in contemporary vellum bindings.

        [drop-title] Extract from an address in the Virginia Gazette, of March 19, 1767

      [Philadelphia: Pr. by Joseph Crukshank? Small 12mo. 4 pp.. 1780?] That slavery then is a violation of justice, will plainly appear. . . . Now, as freedom is unquestionably the birth-right of all mankind, Africans as well as Europeans, to keep the former in a state of slavery is a constant violation of that right and therefore of justice." This strong anti-slavery sentiment, addressed to the Virginia Assembly, was first printed outside of the Virginia Gazette in 1767 as an addition to Anthony Benezet's A caution and warning to Great-Britain, and her colonies. Whether it was also issued separately in 1767 is unclear. There were several editions and variants of editions of this work attributed to Arthur Lee on the basis of statements in G.S. Brooke's Friend Anthony Benezet (pp. 301, 332, and 422), and we refer the interested reader to the records of the North American Imprint Project for the decipherment of them. Five-digit number stamped above the title; pp. 1 and 2 separated from 3 and 4, and gutter margin repaired, reattaching the halves. Semicircular tear in lower, inside area of all pages, costing a total of 9 or 10 words now supplied separately.

        Satan's Invisible World Discovered; Or a Series of Modern Relations Proving Evidently Against The Atheists of This Present Age That There Are Devils, Spirits, Witches & Apparitions From Authentic Records, Attestations of Witnesses and Undoubted Verity. To Which Is Added that Marvellous History of Major Weir and His Sister, The Witches of Bargarran, Pittenweem and Calder.

      8vo. 175 pp. A relatively early edition of this originally very famous but know almost unobtainable volume on the proliferation of witchcraft in 17th Century Scotand and the north country, with a special focus on the notorious and blood curdling Major Thomas Weir who confessed on his sickbed to traffickings with the devil and an incestuous relationship with his sister Jean "Grizel" Weir; the two spun tales of fiery coaches and acts of dark depravity during what became one of the most notable witch trials in Scottish history. Finally Weir and his sister were garrotted and burned in the Gallowlee, Weir's walking stick carved with a human head, reputedly the seat of his power and apparently to be seen on occasion progressing down the street under its own power, was burned with him, making "rare turnings around" in the fire. Altogether a thoroughly sordid affair. #Bound in amodern, orange half morocco over marbled boards with marbled endpapers, strong and durable, if not terribly subtle; a little like its contents. Internally clean, the occasional thumb mark here and there and a small patch of staining to the very bottom of the gutter, not affecting the text, minor wear, several pagination errors point to a volume produced more for popular consumption than as a demonstration of the printer's art. A bright, clean copy of a book, quite besides the additional Weir material contains a plethora of details regarding eyewitness accounts of witches and devils, blow by blow reconstructions of hauntings and curses, and profiles of various perpetrators of supernatural evil. Sinclair was Professor successively of Philosophy and Mathematics at Glasgow University. He was dismissd for nonconformity in 1666, reappointed in 1688, and died in 1696. He is also known for some very decent and academic works on hydrostatics and optics, apparently something of a renaissance man when he wasn't chasing tales of black masses up and down the highlands.#There were at least ten editions of this work published between 1685 and the late nineteenth century. There are perhaps a handful of first edition copies extant, all in institutional libraries and by far the most readily available are nineteenth century reprints, frequently rather edited. Eighteenth century editions in complete form are uncommon. A scarce and important volume in the annals of British witchcraft.
