Not in any of the standard bibliographies.         Not in Medina, Mexico, or its supplements. One old horizontal fold.

        Select Pieces for the Organ [A Second... a Third... A Fourth Set] Performed at the Church of St. George Hanover Square Dedicated to The Right Honble. Lady Mary Duncan by her Ladyships Most Obedient Servant

      [London]: Printed for & Sold by the Author, at his House in Hanover Street Hanover Square, 1780. First Edition, Rare. BUC p. 566. RISM K222 (2 complete copies only in the U.S. and a copy of Part I only at the Library of Congress). Keeble was an English organist, theorist and composer. "He trained as a choirboy at Chichester Cathedral under Thomas Kelway, he went to London, where he studied composition and Greek with Pepusch. He was appointed organist at Ranelagh Gardens in 1742, and in April 1744 he became assistant organist to Thomas Roseingrave at St George's, Hanover Square, sharing Roseingrave's salary until the latter retired to Ireland in the early 1750s..." His four volumes of Select Pieces for the Organ (London, 1777-c1780) are in reality collections of multi-movement voluntaries that demonstrate his traditional concept of formal design. In his preface he refers to the 'Obligato stile of writing' of these pieces, drawing particular attention to the use of 'Fuges, Inversions, Canons, Double Descants and the like'. He carefully marked the appearance of each subject to assist comprehension, and emphasized the cumulative effect of contrapuntal ingenuity. Although his stylistic approach was less commonly adopted by younger composers of voluntaries of the time, he strongly endorsed it as being 'proper for the Church'." Stoddard Lincoln and Gerald Gifford in Grove Music Online.. Oblong folio. 18th century marbled boards with small decorative dark red rectangular title label gilt to upper: "Organ : Pieces : By. Handel : & : Keeble." Part I: 1f. (recto title, verso blank), 1f. (Preface), 34 pp. Part II: 1f. (recto title, verso blank), 35-69, [i] (blank) pp. Part III: 1f. (recto title, verso blank), 70-99, [i] (blank) pp. Part IV: 1f. (recto title, verso blank), [i] (blank), 100-135, [i] (blank) pp. With the autograph signature of the composer to the title page of each part. Part II is dedicated to The Vicountess Cranborne, Part III to Lord Viscount Fitzwilliam, and Part III to Miss Wilhelmina King. The title pages to Parts II-IV carry the printed notice that "These Pieces altho' Compos'd for the Organ, are equally improving and entertaining on the Harpsichord." Part I carries a price of "10s:6d." and Parts II-IV "10:6d." The volume originally also apparently contained music by Handel, as evidenced the inclusion of his name on the title label; there is also a contemporary pencilled annotation to the front pastedown referring the Six Fugues HWV 605-610. Binding worn; corners bumped with some loss; crudely rebacked. Slightly worn and browned; small tears to edges of title of Part I; Keeble's signature to titles faded.

        Carte des Nouvelles Decouvertes au Nord de la Mer du Sud

      Venezia 1780 - Edizione italiana di un caposaldo della cartografia di Joseph Nicolas De L’Isle, la mappa del Nord Pacifico. Il De L’Isle passò gran parte del suo tempo in Russia, fondando l’ Accademia delle Scienze a San Pietroburgo; il suo lavoro cartografico più importante fu l’ "Atlas Russicus", dettagliata rappresentazione della regione. Nel 1747 tornò a Parigi, con una importante mappa manoscritta sul Nord Pacifico che includeva informazioni sul Nord Asia ed America e sullo stretto che le separava. Le informazioni erano frutto delle spedizioni russe nello Stretto di Bering effettuate tra il 1723 e il 1741. Il De L’Isle realizzò una carta molto dettagliata che fu pubblicata nel 1750, della quale vennero realizzate diverse copie in tutta Europa, inclusa questa del Santini, pubblicata dalla tipografia Remondini. La versione italiana è molto simile all’originale e si differenzia sostanzialmente per il cartiglio barocco con dei costumi popolari di abitanti della Kamchatka e della Louisiana. Incisione in rame, coloritura coeva dei contorni, in ottimo stato di conservazione. Bibliografia: Tooley, The Mapping of America 104. Dimensioni 650x470. An Italian edition of Joseph Nicolas De L’Isle's important map of the north Pacific. De L’Isle spent many years working as a cartographer in Russia, founding the Academy of Sciences in St. Petersburg and producing the first Russian Atlas. In 1747, De L’Isle returned to France with a manuscript map of the north Pacific, including information on northeastern Asia, northwestern America and the strait between the two. He produced an engraved map, which was presented to the French Academy of Sciences in 1750. This map was very advanced in some areas, being based on Russian expeditions of 1723, 1732 and 1741, along with Vitus Bering's first and second voyages and the explorations of a number of others such as Tchirkow and Frondat. Unfortunately, the cartography of northwestern America is based on the fictitious account of Admiral de Fonte, showing a huge inland sea, the "Mer de L'Ouest," and waterways leading off towards Baffin's Bay-the long sought for Northwest Passage. Delisle's rendering became the standard for the region until Cook's explorations later in the century. Delisle's map was copied by many publishers, including the Italian Santini, whose map was later issued by Remondini. The Italian versions have a handsome rococo title cartouche balanced by text and images of a native of Kamchatka and one of Louisiana. Copper engraving, contemporary outline colour, in excellent condition. Tooley, The Mapping of America 104. Dimensioni 650x470. Dimensioni

        An Abridgment of the History of the Old and New Testament, interspersed with Moral and Instructive Reflections chiefly out of The Holy Father. By J. Reeve

      Exeter: Printed by R. Thorn And Sold by Him and T. Lewin. London 1780 - FIRST EDITION of this abridgment. 8vo (in 4s), 173 x 108 mms., pp. [iii] iv - vii [vii Errata], 390, [3] 4 - 178, viii, [8 adverts], contemporary calf, red leather label; slight wear to joints and extremities, but a very good copy, with a ownership inscription on the recto of the front free end-paper that affirms a comment on the volume cited below: "Mary Weld/ Sales House Shepton Mallet Somersetshire/ This book belongs to the Monastery of the / Visitation of our Lady Sales House/ Shepton Mallet Somersetshire/ April 23d 1831." Mary Sales Weld was Mother Superior at the Monastery [sic] from 1810 to at least 1831. The Jesuit and Biblical scholar Joseph Reeve (1733–1820) wrote a number of ecclesiastical and theological works, but also turned out a rather good poem published in 1776, Ugbrooke Park. This abridgment proved to be popular and reached a fourth edition by 1795. However, not everyone was thrilled with the Roman Catholic overtones, and The Monthly Review suggested caution: "In this abridgement of the Sacred History, the reflections, moral and religious, which are interspersed, are sensible, useful and sometimes excellent: But it is necessary to warn our readers, that the principles of Popery are so interwoven with the historical and other passages of scripture, that the unwary may be misled, and brought to imagine that the tenets of the Church of Rome are founded on, or supported by, the Sacred Volume; than which nothing can be more false and erroneous. We therefore wonder, that in books of this kind, if published by Protestants, the exceptionable passages should not be omitted; or, at least, accompanied by some satisfactory guard, and antidote, for the sake of general readers, in a Protestant country." ESTC T150444 locates five copies in these islands, and Newberry and University of Texas in Austin; OCLC adds Pitts Theology at Emory, Cornell, St. Louis. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        C18TH FRENCH CONVERSATION GAME

      C18th [circa 1780-90] set of 64 cards [ four sets of 16 cards ] each approx 8 cm x 5 cm, no publisher or date. The cards arranged into four "suits" "We/Nous" "I/Je" "They/Ils" and You/Vous with a sentence or short phrase in English with a translation into French. Presumably, polite ladies would choose cards and challenge each other to provide the translation. The fact that many cards contained sentences pertaining to the pursuit of love must have added a frisson to the occasion, and an opportunity for speculation. We have not been able to find any information about this set and it does not have a box or any rules for play. Condition is Near Fine. One or two are marked; the cards show signs of handling and are slightly bowed.

        Vilmorin - Andrieux, Md. Grainier, Fleuriste et pepinieriste a Paris. Quai de la Megisserie dit de la Feraille (n. 30)

      De l'Imprimerie de Madame Huzard, 1780. Manifesto cm 37,5 x 25, bordura tipografica. Stampato al recto. Foglio pubblicitario di questa importante e longeva ditta, importatrice e produttrice di sementi, attualmente ancora in attivita'. Nel testo sono ampiamente descritte le specie disponibili sia come sementi che come fiori freschi: 'Jacynthes de toutes les classes; Tulipes doubles, Jonquilles, Narcisses, Iris Xiphion, Martagon, Amaryllis... Arbres fruitiers tels que Cerisiers, Abricotiers, Amandiers...  Les arbres vertes... Cedre du Libane, Genevrier et Virginie, Pins, Beaumiers... Plants de serre tels que orangers, citroniers, , jasmin, grenadiers... Curioso il fatto che il lungo testo sia anticipato dall'avviso che nella stessa strada sia presente un altro rivenditore di sementi e fiori portante la stessa insegna Vilmorin - Andrieux, fatto questo che trasse in errore molti clienti... La ditta nacque nel 1743 e trattava sementi e uccelli all'insegna 'Coq du bonne foi'. Nel 1747 edita il suo primo catalogo di vendita per corrispondenza. Attraverso il matrimonio di una delle figlie con il botanico Leveque De Vilmorin la ditta, nel 1775 acquisisce l'attuale denominazione. ITA

        Account of the Russian Discoveries Between Asia and America. To Which are added, the Conquest of Siberia, and the History of the Transactions and Commerce Between Russia and China

      London: J. Nichols for T. Cadell, 1780 xxii+[1]+344+[14]+[2 ad] pges With 4 folding engraved maps & charts (General Map of the Russian Empire. 29.7x58.5 cm.; Krenitzin's and Levasheff's Voyage to the Fox Islands in 1768 and 1769. 20x58.5 cm.; Chart of Synd's Voyage towards Tschukotskoi Noss. 43x43.5 cm.; Chart of Shalauroff's Voyage. 11x33 cm; Lacking is the engraved view of the Chinese frontier town of Maimatschin, generally found facing p. 211. Quarto (10 3/4" x 8 1/2") bound in half leather with five raised spine bands in gilt ruling with black label in gilt over marbled boards. Second edition.This second edition of Coxe's important overview of Russian discoveries in the arctic, has, as Lada-Mocarski notes, "substantially the same contents and makeup" as the first edition of the same year. The work is largely a compilation and translations of accounts of Russian discoveries after those of Bering and Tchirikoff in 1741, supplementing the work of Mueller, with whom, along with P.S. Pallas, Coxe consulted extensively. Pages [17]-174, "Account of the new discoveries made by the Russians..." is a translation from the German of Johann Ludwig Schultz's Neue Nachrichten von denednuentdekten Insuln in der See zwischen Asien und America, 1776. There was a supplement issued in 1787, "A Comparative View of the Russian Discoveries...," which is sometimes bound with the present work, and was included in the body of the third edition. Though a compilation, Lada-Mocarski observes that "Coxe's work...is a result of contemporary and authoritative sources translated into English, not to be overlooked by scholars and collectors alike...." Hill, discussing this work and its significance, notes that "Coxe made suggestions which led the Russians to promote expeditions of discovery to the northern parts of Siberia. His list of works on the subject, and his observations on the fur trade between the Russians and the Chinese, are very valuable..." Condition:Lacking one plate, folding maps and charts with some foxing and occasional repaired tears, period owner's signature at rear flyleaf and title, some staining to title, front end paper for-edge trimmed else about very good.

        Etat présent des Indes Hollandaises, contenant une Peintre vraie et Fidelle du Gouvernement, de l'Administration, et la Conduite des Hollandais dans les Indes-Orientales...

      Batavia (but Amsterdam?): n.p., circa, 1780. Octavo, 96pp., booksellers label to inner front cover, engraved vignette on the title; uncut in contemporary patterned wrappers fashioned from a booksellers catalogue, handwritten title-label to upper cover. A remarkable eighteenth century pamphlet detailing the political, economic and military conditions in the Dutch East Indies. Although anonymous, the work was written by an evidently well-informed author who provides sensitive strategic insights into the weakness of Dutch interests in the region, stressing their vulnerability to British and French aggression.Translated from a simultaneously issued Dutch edition (Nederlandisch India), the report was written either shortly before or at the beginning of the Fourth Anglo-Dutch War (1780-1784). The unknown author's frank and candid discussion of the weaknesses of the VOC generally and Batavia particularly, has led to much speculation about the intentions of the work. 'The economy was precarious, persons in both Europe and Southeast Asia were Jekyll and Hyde. There were those who tried to warn of VOC troubles but, when corruption reaches the highest places and when statistical cooperation can be secured between production and sales, what to do! The Heeren XVII knew less than they should have known about affairs abroad. They "regulated" to a degree only, whereas the truth of minimal salaried men bringing fabulous fortunes home... was easily and constantly very visible in Asia to anybody who looked. This author was writing from a position of prominence; he too had money; he was equally fluent in Dutch and French: he tried to warn. Where did he print? And - what was his name?' (Smith Diehl, Printers and Printing in the East Indies to 1850: Batavia, 1990, p.151-152).The susceptibility of Batavia to a British or French attack is a central concern and in compelling detail the author outlines the weakness of the various garrisons defending the VOC administrative capital. '[Batavia] un château qui tombe entièrement en ruine... J'oserais assurer que trois ou quatre vaisseaux Anglais, Français ou de route autre nation, emporteraient Batavia dans deux ou trois jours.' It is unclear then why the report was immediately rendered into French (as well as English), but these translations did raise the hackles of contemporary commentators in London particularly: was the work in fact some sort of ruse de guerre?The volume is bound in a bookseller's catalogue (from which we can suppose a publishing date sometime around 1780) which has been overprinted in red ink in a striking diamond pattern. The catalogue likely belonged to Geneva bookseller Jean François Bassompierre, whose ticket is pasted down on the inside cover. The title page notes printing in Batavia, although Landwehr suggests very plausibly that it may in fact be Amsterdam. Spine repaired, title page and A2 neatly remounted, very good.

      Printed for & Sold by the Author, at his House in Hanover Street Hanover Square, [London] 1780 - Oblong folio. 18th century marbled boards with small decorative dark red rectangular title label gilt to upper: "Organ : Pieces : By. Handel : & : Keeble." Part I: 1f. (recto title, verso blank), 1f. (Preface), 34 pp. Part II: 1f. (recto title, verso blank), 35-69, [i] (blank) pp. Part III: 1f.

Part II is dedicated to The Vicountess Cranborne, Part III to Lord Viscount Fitzwilliam, and Part III to Miss Wilhelmina King. The title pages to Parts II-IV carry the printed notice that "These Pieces altho' Compos'd for the Organ, are equally improving and entertaining on the Harpsichord." Part I carries a price of "10s:6d." and Parts II-IV "10:6d." The volume originally also apparently contained music by Handel, as evidenced the inclusion of his name on the title label; there is also a contemporary pencilled annotation to the front pastedown referring the Six Fugues HWV 605-610. Binding worn; corners bumped with some loss; crudely rebacked. Slightly worn and browned; small tears to edges of title of Part I; Keeble's signature to titles faded. First Edition, Rare. BUC p. 566. RISM K222 (2 complete copies only in the U.S. and a copy of Part I only at the Library of Congress). Keeble was an English organist, theorist and composer. "He trained as a choirboy at Chichester Cathedral under Thomas Kelway, he went to London, where he studied composition and Greek with Pepusch. He was appointed organist at Ranelagh Gardens in 1742, and in April 1744 he became assistant organist to Thomas Roseingrave at St George's, Hanover Square, sharing Roseingrave's salary until the latter retired to Ireland in the early 1750s."His four volumes of Select Pieces for the Organ (London, 1777-c1780) are in reality collections of multi-movement voluntaries that demonstrate his traditional concept of formal design. In his preface he refers to the ?Obligato stile of writing' of these pieces, drawing particular attention to the use of ?Fuges, Inversions, Canons, Double Descants and the like'. He carefully marked the appearance of each subject to assist comprehension, and emphasized the cumulative effect of contrapuntal ingenuity. Although his stylistic approach was less commonly adopted by younger composers of voluntaries of the time, he strongly endorsed it as being ?proper for the Church'."
