        Daniel Niklaus Chodowiecki 4 Miniature Etchings 1780

      Daniel Niklaus Chodowiecki 4 Miniature Etchings 1780 Size of 3 etchings: 5 x 9 cm. (1.9 x 3.5") Size of fourth one: 3.3 x 6.7 cm. (1.3 x 2.6") Signed on passé partout: D. Chodowiecki 1780 Etchings laid on paper Condition - see carefully photos. Light damping to right edge of the first etching from the top Pale foxing stain to the second one from the top Tears and small foxing stains to passé partout Daniel Niklaus Chodowiecki (16 October 1726 - 7 February 1801) was a Polish - German painter and printmaker with Huguenot ancestry, who is most famous as an etcher. He spent most of his life in Berlin, and became the director of the Berlin Academy of Art. Soon Daniel was able to earn a living by painting. He was admitted to the Berlin Academy in 1764 and became vice-director under Bernhard Rode in 1788. He had found his true calling and became the most famous German graphic artist of his time. His works includes several thousand etchings, usually rather small, and many drawings and paintings. His book illustrations embrace almost all the great classics. His prints represent in great detail the life of the bourgeoisie during the Zopfstil period, a time between Rococo and Classicism. In 1797 Chodowiecki was appointed director of the Academy of Arts in Berlin, where he died on 7 February 1801. The bulk of his work was in illustrating scientific books by Basedow, Buffon, Lavater, Pestalozzi and others. He also painted many portraits of Polish gentry and was interested in Huguenot and Polish history as well, making some paintings on the topic. He was in tune with the developing spirit of the age, and many works reflect the cult of sensibility, and then the revolutionary and German nationalist feelings of the end of the century. In printmaking, he is credited with the invention of the deliberate remarque, a small sketch on a plate, lying outside the main image. These were originally little sketches or doodles by artists, not really meant to be seen, but Chodowiecki turned them into "bonus items" for collectors. Chodowiecki, though speaking only French and German[1] (due to his offices in the Huguenot French community in Berlin he often spoke French), many times also declared his Polish allegiance and had his son Isaac Heinrich, born in Berlin, painted as a very young child with a Polish outfit and haircut. After Partitions of Poland Chodowiecki wrote to Gräfin Solms-Laubach: "From father's side I'm Polish, a descendant of a brave nation which will soon vanish".[2] In a letter to Józef Łęcki, the Polish astronomer, he wrote: "I consider it an honour to be a genuine Pole, even though I am now living in Germany".[3] Because of his mother's and his wife's Huguenot descent he was very close to the Huguenots of Berlin. Nearly all his life and career was spent in Germany, writing in German and living in Berlin from the age of almost 17. Chodowiecki depicted on a 1 million papiermark note (1923). One of his most popular books is "Journey from Berlin to Danzig" (German: "Die Reise von Berlin nach Danzig", 1773) with many illustrations. He purchased a horse rather than going by stage coach. This was his first return after 30 years absence and he went specifically to see his elderly mother and sisters in Danzig again. He made only one more trip to Danzig afterwards, to his mother's funeral. He describes and illustrates towns and people in Pomerania and Prussia on the way.

        Encyclopédie ou Dictionnaire universel raisonné des Connoissances humaines. Mis en ordre par M. De Felice.

      Yverdon, (Société typographique) 1770-1780. - 42 Textbände, 6 Bände Supplement und 10 Tafelbände = total 58 Bände. 4° (21x26,5x21 cm). Die 10 Tafelbände mit 1410 (nach der Zählung des Herausgebers) teils gefalteten, gestochenen Tafeln. Geflammte Kalblederbände der Zeit mit je zwei verschiedenfarbigen Rückenschildern über 5 Bünden, reicher Rückenvergoldung mit Urnen- und Medaillonmotiven. Vollständiges Exemplar des grössten in der Schweiz geschriebenen und gedruckten Lexikons. Die Auflage von ca. 3000 Exemplaren wurde durch die Typographische Gesellschaft in Bern und über Pierre Gosse verkauft. Im Unterschied zu anderen Folgewerken der Pariser Enzyklopädie ist die Encyclopédie d’Yverdon kein Nach- oder Raubdruck, sondern eine echte Neufassung. Felice liess den Textkorpus von mehr als 30 Autoren redigieren, die fehlerhaften Artikel verbessern, unvollständige Artikel ergänzen und zahlreiche neue Artikel hinzufügen. Darüber hinaus wurde die religionskritische Haltung Diderots und d’Alemberts in Felices Ausgabe gemildert und durch eine protestantische Sichtweise ersetzt, weshalb das Werk auch "protestantische Enzyklopädie" genannt wurde und vor allem in Nordeuropa grosse Verbreitung fand. "J'achèterai l'édition d'Yverdon et non l'autre" (Voltaire 1770). - Fortunato Bartolomeo de Felice (1723-1789) war katholischer Priester, konvertierte zum Protestantismus und wurde 1769 in Yverdon eingebürgert. Er studierte in Rom und Brescia, erhielt 1746 die Priesterweihe und wurde Professor für Philosophie in Rom, 1753 für Experimentalphysik und Mathematik in Neapel. In eine Sittlichkeitsaffäre verwickelt, flüchtete er im Sommer 1757 nach Bern. 1758 schwor er dem Katholizismus ab, im selben Jahr gründete er mit Vinzenz Bernhard Tscharner die Typographische Gesellschaft in Bern. Felice siedelte 1762 nach Yverdon über, nachdem er von der Berner Regierung eine Verlagslizenz erhielt. Er eröffnete ein Erziehungsinstitut und gründete eine Druckerei, die sich rasch zu einer der bedeutendsten der Schweiz entwickelte. Felice selbst schrieb ein halbes Dutzend pädagogische, philosophische und religiöse Werke. Er hat keine persönlichen Akten hinterlassen und seine handschriftliche Autobiographie blieb bisher unauffindbar, doch sind ziemlich viele Briefe von seiner Hand erhalten. Felices Werk ist bedeutend für die Geschichte der Aufklärung. Erst in neuester Zeit wurde sein Schaffen Gegenstand verschiedener Publikationen. - 1. Tafelband ungebunden aus einem anderen Exemplar ergänzt. Mehrere Bände mit angebrochenen Deckelkanten, vor allem die Tafelbände. Im 2. Tafelband fehlt offenbar eine gefaltete Tafel (Art militaire). Stellenweise leicht gebräunt. Das starke Papier meist fleckenlos. - Exemplaire complet de la plus grande encyclopédie écrite et imprimée en Suisse. L’édition tirée à environ 3000 exemplaires fut vendue par la société typographique « Typographische Gesellschaft » à Bern, ainsi que par Pierre Grosse. Contrairement à d’autres oeuvres qui suivirent l’encyclopédie de Paris, l’encyclopédie d’Yverdon n’est pas une réimpression, ni une édition pirate, mais bien une nouvelle version. Felice fit rédiger le texte à plus de 30 auteurs, qui corrigèrent et complétèrent certains articles et qui en ajoutèrent des nouveaux en nombre. De plus la position très critique par rapport à la religion de Diderot et d'Alembert est plus pondérée dans l'édition de Felice et remplacée par une vision plus protestante, raison pour laquelle, cet oeuvre a parfois été appelée "Encyclopédie protestante" et qu'elle a trouvé une grande résonnance surtout au Nord de l'Europe. Fortunato Bartolomeod e Felice (1723-1789) était un prêtre catholique qui se converti au protestantisme et devint citoyen d'Yverdon en 1769. Felice étudia à Rome et à Brescia. Il fut ordonné prêtre en 1746 et enseigna la philosophie à Rome, puis en 1753 la physique experimentale et les mathématiques à Naples. Pris dans une histoire de moeurs, il s'enfuit à Berne en été 1757. En 1758 il tourna le dos au catholicisme. La même année il créa avec Vinzenz Be

        Account of the Russian discoveries between Asia and America. To which are added, the conquest of Siberia

      London: J. Nichols for T. Cadell, 1780. FIRST EDITION. With 4 large folding plates by T. Kitchin and 1 engraved folding plate by Cheevers. Modern quarter calf over boards; preliminary leaves have small waterstain on lower margin and small insignificant chip on fore-edge, folding map and plate are torn at folds with no loss of image, but both are offset, one on title, the other on the adjoining leaf, text block is very good, with occasional toning, scattered ink stain on verso of Z2. First edition of the author's famous account of his exploration. Coxe visited St. Petersburg and spent time researching Russian activities in the North Pacific and Bering Sea, including collecting journals of Russian expeditions and discoveries made in northwestern America. On his journey, Coxe collected, compared and translated Russian maps and journals subsequent to Bering's 1741 expedition, the first ever given to the public and the first appearances in English. This significant source on Russian exploration and expansion into the northern Pacific in order to open trade with Alaska and the Aeutian Islands is fascinating. "Coxe made suggestions which led the Russians to promote expeditions of discovery to the north 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" (Hill). Coxe (1747-1826) was an English historian, who traveled throughout Europe and Russia. A linguist and Senior Fellow at King's College, Cambridge, he visited many parts of Europe as tutor and traveling companion to various noblemen and gentlemen, including Lord Herbert, son of the Earl of Pembroke.

        ESCUELA DE LEER LETRAS CURSIVAS ANTIGUAS E MODERNAS,

      - DESDE LA ENTRADA DE LOS GODOS EN ESPAÑA, HASTA NUESTROS TIEMPOS SU AUTOR EL P. ANDRÉS MERINO DE JESUCHRISTO, RELIGIOSO PROFESO DE LAS ESCUELAS PIAS DE LA PROVINCIA DE CASTILLA. EN MADRID. AÑO DE 1780. GRAVADAS LAS LETRAS POR DON FRANCISCO ASSENSIO Y MEJORADA.[MADRID, 1780]. In fólio (de 35x23,5 cm) com [30], 443 págs. Encadernação da época inteira de pele, com nervos e ferros a ouro na lombada e no rótulo vermelho com o título: Merino Escvela Paleogr[áfica]. Profusamente ilustrado com gravuras abertas em chapa de metal (intercaladas e fazendo parte da sequência do texto), apresentando os fac-similes de cartas e documentos representativos da escrita/ortografia/caligrafia desde o tempo dos romanos até ao século XVI. O texto apresenta a explicação dos caracteres próprios para siglas e para ligaduras gráficas nos textos antigos. Exemplar apresenta um título de posse (de origem portuguesa) no pé da folha de rosto: «Foi-me dado por minha Thia Ana Julia em Maio de 1845. Joaquim de Mattos de Oliveira e Almada». A folha de rosto foi igualmente aberta em chapa de metal (gravada por Josef Assensio) e apresenta um restauro profissional dentro da orla da esquadria sem perda de texto. As primeiras páginas inumeradas contêm a lista de subscritores da obra; seguidas de «Advertencias al Lector» contendo uma história da paleografia desde os tempos de Júlio César. A obra começa exactamente pela discussão da originalidade da caligrafia apresentada no Testamento de César. Obra rara e de uma beleza tipográfica que mostra o estado da arte na reprodução directa de documentos no final do século dezoito. As lâminas com as amostras ou exemplos caligráficos intercalam-se perfeitamente no texto que se segue a cada uma, confrontando-as com a leitura cotada linha a linha. Depois da cada ?Lectura? segue-se um capítulo com ?Reflexiones? sobre cada lâmina. Estas reflexões são de grande importância para a ciência da diplomática e incidem sobre os aspectos técnicos, sobre os aspectos artísticos, e sobre os aspectos formais da apresentação dos documentos. Todas as análises destas reflexões ultrapassam em muito os conteúdos dos documentos e alargam-se pelos aspectos e discussões históricas e culturais tais como: a discussão da prioridade cronológica da língua portuguesa sobre a língua castelhana (pág. 174) e sobre a similaridade entre as línguas portuguesa e a galega (pág. 175); um tratado de moedas desde o ano 414 até 1086 (pág. 186 e seguintes) contendo a história das moedas e o seu valor relativo desde o tempo dos romanos; as correspondências de valor entre as moedas de Castela, Aragão e Portugal (pág. 207); o custo dos produtos e artigos e as respectivas taxas fiscais sobre os mesmos no final da Idade Média (pág. 209); as várias e indispensáveis listas de abreviaturas caligráficas (págs. 271-273 e 375-377) com reflexões sobre o seu desenvolvimento e utilização; a reprodução de magníficos documentos das chancelarias reais espanholas (por exemplo na página 300 apresenta um fac-simile idêntico a um documento de Zafra do nosso catálogo). A última gravura apresenta um abecedário desde a introdução da letra francesa até à data desta obra. Todos os documentos reproduzidos nesta obra têm a sua origem identificada nos arquivos espanhóis do Escorial, em várias bibliotecas dos mosteiros e conventos de Toledo; em San Ildefonso de Álcalá, etc., permitindo deste modo que esta obra mantenha a sua pertinência e actualidade. In folio (35x23.5 cm) with [30], 443 pp. Binding: contemporary full calf, with raised bands and gilt tools on spine and reb label with gilt title: Merino Escvela Paleogr[aphic].

        TRAVELS IN INDIA,

      - DURING THE YEARS 1780, 1881, 1782, & 1783. BY WILLIAM HODGES, R. A. LONDON: PRINTED FOR THE AUTHOR, AND SOLD BY J. EDWARDS, PALL-MALL. MDCCXCIII. [1793] In 4º (de 28x23 cm) com vi, 156, [1] pags Encadernação do século XX inteira de pele com ferros a ouro na lombada. Folhas de guarda em papel decorativo da época. Exemplar com ex-libris do Doutor João Braga, Engenheiro Agronomo. Ilustrado com 1 mapa desdobrável do território de Bengala e Bahar; e 14 gravuras intercaladas em extra-texto com os seguintes títulos: 1- A view of the great pagoda at Tangore 2 - A view of calcuta taken from Fort William 3 - The pass of Sicri Gully from Bengal entering the province of Bahar. 4 . A view of the inside of a Zananah [Harem] 5 - Banyan Tree [Ficus Reliogiosus] 6 - Mahomedan women attending the tombs of their parents, relatives, or friends at night. 7 - Peasent woman + Asepoy matchlock man. 8 - A columbn taken from the temple of Vis Visha at Benares 9 - Procession of a hindu woman to the Funeral Pile 10 - A view of Bidjegur 11 - A view of the Palace of Nabob Asoph ul Dowlah at Lucknow 12 - A view of Agra taken from the South West 13 - A woman of Hindostan + Mullah or Musselman Priest 14 - A view of the Fort of Gwalior Este livro de viagens é o resultado de uma recolha efectuada durante 6 anos (1778-1783) na Índia. O exemplar apresenta-se na variante não-colorida, ilustrada com um mapa da parte de Bengala e Bahar, e com as referidas 14 gravuras intercaladas na sequência da narrativa. A obra é considerada a primeira recolha das paisagens esplendorosas da Índia e, também, dos aspectos das pessoas comuns, feita por um europeu, que testemunhou a presença dos ingleses na Índia. O texto que acompanha as imagens dá uma história de cada local, juntamente com um relato dos acontecimentos contemporâneos aí ocorridos. Este trabalho causou sensação na época devido aos cenários da Índia nesta escala nunca antes vista; a beleza da paisagem; os antigos monumentos; e os aspectos da sociedade indiana. O aspecto mais relevante desta obra é o do ritual da Sati (gravura na página 84/85) com o convite ao suicídio da viúva na pira funerária, que comoveu e chocou os ocidentais ao ponto desta cerimónia ser depois proibida na Índia. Hodges utilizou um estilo proto-impressionista digno de nota. As pinturas (das quais foram abertas as gravuras por Medland, Byrne, Angus, Skelton, Pouncy, Tompkins, Fittler e Walker) apresentam uma luz e uma sombra mais forte do que tinha sido habitual na tradição pictórica europeia. Os críticos de arte queixaram-se de uma aparência áspera e inacabada. Hodges dá uma visão completamente nova da Índia com seus grandes rios e florestas que tinham pouco em comum com a imagem popular de India adquiridas com as antigas descrições dos viajantes. Na arquitectura o autor representa edificios pouco conhecidos: túmulos muçulmanos e mesquitas, templos hindus, fortes e palácios. William Hodges (1744-1797), o autor do texto e das gravuras deste trabalho, nasceu em Londres. Hodges e é mais conhecido pelos desenhos e pinturas de locais como a Table Bay (Cabo da Boa Esperança), o Taiti, a Ilha de Páscoa, e a Antártida. As suas melhores pinturas estão no Museu Marítimo, em Londres. Hodges estudou com William Shipley, e mais tarde no estúdio de Richard Wilson, onde se encontrou com Thomas Jones. No início da carreira ganhava a vida pintando cenários teatrais. Em 1766 Hodges já exibia individualmente. Através do patrocínio de Lord Palmerston (1739-1802), na altura membro do Conselho do Almirantado, Hodges obteve um posto de desenhador na segunda viagem do Captão Cook (com os navios HMS Resolution e HMS Adventure). Muitos dos seus esboços, pinturas e aguarelas foram adaptados como gravuras na edição original da obra de Cook. O Almirantado requereu que completasse os desenhos e superintendesse a sua gravação. A sua primeira exposição no Royal Academy, em 1776, foi uma vista de Otahiti. Após a morte de sua esposa partiu para a Índia como pintor e desenhador da C

        A Collection of early portraits of Capt. James Cook and representations of the famous "Death of Cook"

      Very good overall. The collection of 37 images has been assembled over the last 30 years. It has, at its' nucleus, an early 19th century collection of 10 portraits assembled by Sam'l Cousins, R.A. There are 25 portraits, eight "Death of Cook" images, four images of medals or eulogies with Cook's portrait. The engravings range from 1780-1880 with the majority being in the late 18th century. They include copper, stipple, steel and wood engravings & lithographs, dating from 1780 to 1879. On the verso of one portrait is the pencil inscription "Capt. Cooke (sic) the famous Navigator. 10 separate plates with the great Portrait by Dance. This collection was made by Sam'l Cousins R.A. and cannot now be duplicated." Samuel Cousins appears in Beddie 4269-70 & 4166-69 as the engraver of Bank's portraits from 1822-28. We believe the author of the penciled comment is Colonel Fuller, a noted UK collector of portraits. [NB The portraits are listed by sculptor, as they are referenced in Beddie, "Bibliography of Capt.

        La Pyrothecnie Pratique, ou Dialogues entre un Amateur des feux d'Artifice pour le Spectacle et un Jeune homme curieux de s'en instruire.

      Paris: L. Cellot, & Jombert fils jeune, 1780 First edition. 8vo (19,5 x 11,8 cm). xxviii, (2), 340 pp. Contemporary full calf. gilt-tooled spine with 5 raised bands, 5 gilt fleurons and a gilt-lettered red morocco label. Marbled endpapers and edges. Gilt-decorated board edges. Illustrated with 7 folding copper-engraved plates and 1 folding table. Rare early French work on a wide range of recreational fireworks. This work on pyrotechny is written in the form of 26 dialogues between the young Count of L(alaing) and his instructor , the "amateur" G(rignon). The work is divided into 4 parts and covers all aspects of preparing and producing fireworks and the different apparatuses to be used with them: fusées volantes, gerbes de feu, chandelles romaines, courantins, pots-à-feux, bombes and ballons, illuminations, galeries de feu, fontaines, soleils tournans &c. The text is accompanied by 7 folding copper-engraved plates with over 100 instructive figures. The explanation of these figures is supplied on pp. 330-339. With an index of the different dialogues. Very good antiquarian condition. Only the paper of the folding table, giving the composition and the dimensions of different fireworks, shows paper-related browning and furthermore a scratch on the front cover. But otherwise a complete, fresh, well-bound and well-kept copy with strong impressions of the plate-figures. For a full description and more images please visit www.zaalbooks.nl .

        Les rendez-vous du Palais-Royal.

      Orléans, Jean-Baptiste Letourmy, (vers 1780-1790). ____ Grande feuille imprimée sur bois ( 37 x 32 cm) et coloriée au pochoir, portant 9 vignettes de scènes galantes dans le haut-lieu du plaisir à Paris. Elle montre sur le mode humoristique, des robes, légendées : "retroussée", "au plaisir des dames", "au charme d'amour", "à la turque",... Orléans était au XVIIIe siècle le plus important centre d'imagerie populaire. "Lorsque l'on évoque l'imagerie populaire en France, le nom d'Epinal vient tout de suite à l'esprit. Mais bien avant l'émergence de cette ville et des autres centres de production d'imagerie de l'Est au XIXe siècle, Orléans tenait une place privilégiée dans cette histoire au XVIIIe siècle.» «Le bleu orléanais, particulièrement utilisé au XVIIIe siècle, est caractéristique de ce centre où le vert en revanche est utilisé avec parcimonie. Les rouges tirent davantage sur l'orange et les jaunes sont chauds tirant également sur l'orangé : peut-être uitilise-t-on le safran du Gâtinais comme en indiennerie ? Ceci confère une grande douceur et beaucoup de charme à la plupart des productions de Perdoux et Letourmy." (L'imagerie populaire d'Orléans, Musée des beaux-arts d'Orléans, 2005) Inutile d'insister sur la rareté de telles images aujourd'hui. Celle-ci est en excellent état à l'exception d'une réparation dans la marge blanche extérieure. *-------* Large wood engraved sheet, stencil-colored, from Orleans, the most important eighteenth century center for popular imagery. The Palais-Royal was then a high spot of pleasure in Paris. All these images are very rare today. . [380 x 320 mm] Collation :.
