Anon.
1781. unk.: unique, unk. date. single sheet.. A good copy; old repaired tear.. An orig. 16th century ink drawing on a notebook leaf that meas. appx. 6.25 x 8.5 inches. It is a rendering in light brown ink of an elaborate classic Roman style torchiere. The verso of the leaf has what appears to be chariots and shields of various kinds ( the old paper repair goes right through these renderings ). The torchiere is a strikingly elaborate concotion that is similar to those in volume four of Carlo Antonini's, Manuale di vari Ornamenti, [ IV : Candelabri ... Antiche ], Rome, 1781 - see plate # 17. The artist of this rendering is unkown. See Antonini, v. 4.

RAFFLES, Sir Thomas Stamford.
1781. XLVIII, 479, [1 blank]; VIII, 292, CCLX, [4] pp.Excellent wove paper copy (1 of 250) of the first edition of this richly illustrated classic on the history of Java by Sir Thomas Stamford Raffles (1781-1826). He was Lieutenant Governor of Java during the British administration of the Dutch colonies from 1811 to 1816, following the blockade of the coasts of Europe by Napoleon's "continental system". Raffles worked on the present history of Java during his time there, and more seriously in 1815 when he knew his stay was coming to an end. Back in England in 1816, publication of the work was delayed because the illustrations needed to be finished. It was finally published in 1817 on wove (250 copies) and on ordinary paper (650 copies).The aquatints and etchings for the wove paper copies were printed first and are in the best state. Our copy is one of these on wove paper, with the watermark "W. Balston & Co., 1815" . Noteworthy is that the ordinary paper copies have different watermarks, described in Abbey: one dated 1817 for the text and another one dated 1816 from J. Whatham.The book covers not only the usual topics - such as the history of Java, its geography, demography, natural history, religion, law, customs, antiquities, European administration, commerce, military system, etc. - but also highly original chapters on Javanese ethics, literature, poetry, music, national drama, games of skill, hunting, languages, etc.Some occasional foxing in the margins, otherwise in very good condition.l Abbey, Travel 554; Bastin & Brommer, pp. 5-7; Tooley, Coloured plates 391.

SCHINKEL, Carl Friedrich.
30 ll. + 170 plates.First edition of a collection of architectural designs by the German architect Karl Friedrich Schinkel (1781-1841), "the most highly-regarded architect of his generation, whose influence is comparable with that of Percier and Fontaine in France" (BAL). It includes a total of 170 large engravings after Schinkel's drawings and ground plans for many important German monumental buildings, manors, churches, monuments etc., including around 10 plates of the Schauspielhaus (Konzerthaus) in Berlin, one of his major projects. "Between about 1800 and 1840 he [Schinkel] produced a large number of architectural drawings, latterly in relation to commissions which he obtained as his fame spread (more than 500 drawings were in existence at his death, many of which are now in the Nationalgalerie in Berlin). It was from this body of work that Schinkel made his own selection for the present work" (BAL). "He left his mark German architecture of the 19th century and beyond like no architect since" (Steffens).Corner of title-page torn off, restored, several plates heavily browned or foxed, a few others with tears, all restored. Lacking plates 4, 5, 15 and 90. Binding with some water stains, otherwise in good condition.l BAL 2934; M. Steffens, K. F. Schinkel 1781-1841 (2003), p. 12.

Lavater, Jean Gaspard
3 volumes, folio, La Haye, 1781-1786. 145 full-page portraits (o.a. portraits of Da Vinci, Durer, Erasmus, Rubens) & 390 engravings in the text. Gilt tooled, all edges gilt. Fine large paper copy. - Without the fourth volume which was published much later, after the French Revolution in 1803. Condition: some foxing and slight damp staines, but not much. Some rubbing on the edges of the bindings. Volume 2: title page partly loose from the binding and has some folds. Front hinge a bit loose. Very rare! Lavater is most well known for his work in the field of physiognomy, Physiognomische Fragmente zur Beförderung der Menschenkenntnis und Menschenliebe, published between 1775 and 1778. He introduced the idea that physiognomy related to the specific character traits of individuals, rather than general types. Lavater is attributed with catalysing a golden age for silhouettes through this work in physiognomy. According to him, the character of a person could be elucidated through examining their "lines of countenance". The most accurate of readings were facilitated by the tracing of a profile outline portrait. This contour line could be filled with black or cut from the white paper and placed over a black backing. More often, the silhouette was simply cut from black paper. In the chapter "On Shades", Lavater wrote, "What can less the image of a living man be than a shade? Yet how full of speech! Little gold, but the purest." The fame of this book, which found admirers in France and England as well as Germany, rests largely upon the handsome style of publication and the accompanying … [Click Below for Full Description]

[RICKMAN, John].
X, 508 pp.First French edition in its second, corrected state, of the unofficial account of Cook's third and final voyage of discovery, with a colophon on page 508, lacking in the first state. John Rickman served as Second Lieutenant on the Discovery and published his account in 1781, the only book-length report available to the public for more than a year. Despite its defects, the account is of great importance, since, as Glyn Williams has pointed out, "Rickman's Cook was a more violent Cook than the generally humane and restrained commander of the earlier Voyages."Very good, untrimmed copy.l Beddie 1611; Forbes 45; Kroepelien 1080; this edition not in Hill; cf.

56 pp.An offprint of 2 mathematical essays by the Italian astronomer and mathematician Giovanni Antonio Amedeo Plana (1781-1864), on the equation of a curve formed by an elastic string and on the integral equation. With a hand-written dedication on the front wrapper to "Monsieur Deleuret Capt. du corps Imperial du Génie". The essays were originally published in Mémoires de l' Academie des Sciences, Litterature et Beaux Arts XVIII (1811). "Plana is generally considered one of the major Italian scientists of his age because, at a time when the quality of instruction at Italian universities had greatly deteriorated, his teaching was of the highest quality, quite comparable with that of the grandes écoles of Paris, at which he had studied" (DSB).In good condition with the wrappers slightly wrinkled.l Liste des ouvrages ... par le Baron Jean Plana, in: Bull. des science math. et astron. vol. 5 (1873), p. 5 no. 2-3; WorldCat (2 copies); for the author: DSB XI, pp. 6-7; Poggendorff II , 460-463.

MONTGÉRY, Jacques-Philippe Mérigon de.
[2], 78 pp.First and only edition of a treatise on naval mines, an early work by the French naval officer Jacques-Philippe Mérigon de Montgéry (1781-1839), later well-known as a military engineer, pyrotechnician and chronicler of the history of rockets. The folding plate is very finely engraved, pointing the way toward the steel engraving that stood poised to take over the high end of the market for book illustration. A supposed 1814 edition (OCLC WorldCat without location) appears to be a ghost.With library stamps (that on the title-page cancelled). The present copy lacks the half-title (with the printer's name on the back) and the last leaf, with a two-page list of books offered by Bachlier, but includes the folding plate, which appears to be lacking in the two copies that have been scanned for the Internet. Otherwise in very good condition, with occasional foxing (mostly restricted to the title-page). The front hinge is cracked and worn, with the head and foot of the backstrip damaged, but the binding is otherwise very good.l Polak 6795; for Montgéry: DSB IX, pp. 491-492.

DÃœRER, Albrecht; STABIUS, Johannus; and BARTSCH, Adam Von
Wien,: Editum ex Tabula lignea ab Alberto Durer incisa, quae in Bbliotheca Aug. Vindob. extat.,, 1781. 1781. Woodblock map printed from four blocks on two sheets joined, watermark of crowned escutcheon with inscription ‘WOLFEG’ below, a few minor tears skilfully repaired. Dürer’s striking two sheet world map, the “first known printed map to show the earth as a sphere” (Dackerman) Although not signed by Dürer, it is most certainly the work of the artist. The map was produced in collaboration with Johann Stabius, the court astronomer to Maximillian I. The pair had previously worked upon a set of star charts - the first printed charts of the heavens - which also bear the date 1515. It is hard not to assume that these two works were meant as companion pieces. With the world map’s attempt to render the globular world as a flat sphere, the pieces certainly bear a uniformity of design. The map features are essentially Ptolemaic, with Europe and East Asia appearing on the extreme left and right of the map. The only nod to modernity is the acknowledgement of the circumnavigation of Africa, which was most likely taken from Martin Behaim’s globe of 1492. Behaim’s globe known as the ‘Erdapfel’ (earth-apple), was the first known representation of the earth as as a free standing, three-dimensional sphere. The work was well known to both Stabius and Dürer, as it was housed in the Nuremberg Rathaus until 1531. “Dürer’s creation of the illusion of three-dimensionality enlivens this image. Zones of shading at the top are suggested where the graticule narrows, a … [Click Below for Full Description]

Stieler, Joseph Karl
1781. NA. Very Good. Frame measuring 10 by 9 cm, the cameo painting, 45 by 37 mm at the tallest and widest. Frame is of bone pieces radiating out from the oval cameo, with penwork decoration of a vine around the perimeter. Painting is signed "Stieler". Joseph Stieler (1781-1858) made a number, maybe a large number, of paintings of Montez, including other small cameos. Stieler was the royal court painter of the Bavarian kings. Of course, it is possible that these more diminutively sized works were done by someone else who signed them Stieler. Montez (1821-1861), who was born as Marie Gilbert, was a dancer of dubious talent but in her youth famous for her beauty and a seductress of rare "talent", having affairs with Franz Liszt and other prominent men before becoming the obsession of Ludwig I of Bavarian in 1846. The monarch, popular before his involvement with Montez, was forced to abdicate two years into his affair, after having made her the Countess of Landsfeld. After squandering a small fortune and many other to-dos such as characterized Montez's whole densely eventful life, she fled to the United States in 1851 where she toured as a dancer, then lecturer, among other things, for the duration of her brief life. The lovely frame has a brass ring atop to be used to hang it on a wall.

Translated by Robert Potter
London: Printed for J. Dodsley, 1781 and 1783, First Collected English Edition. Two volume set, complete. Quarto (10 ¼ inches tall) half leather hardcovers with four raised bands to spine, gilt titles on terracotta labels and the volume number to brown labels. Worn with marks to the boards and leather, small crack to the top two inches of the front joint of Vol II. Rev. Robert Potter (1721-1804) was an English clergyman of the Church of England, a translator, a poet and a pamphleteer. He established the convention of using blank verse for Greek hexameters and rhymed verse for choruses. His 1777 English version of the plays of Aeschylus was the only one available for the next fifty years. Potter completed English versions of the plays of Æschylus (1777), Euripides (1781–1783) and Sophocles (1788) that remained in print throughout the 19th century. Of the three, the Æschylus was best known, as there was no other translation of the author available before the 1820s. His scheme of using blank verse for Greek hexameters and rhymed verse for the choruses was widely adopted by other translators. He also published copious poetry, some sermons, and some political pamphlets, targeted, for instance, at the "pretended inspiration of the Methodists" (1758) and at the Poor Laws (1775). Portrait of Euripides to title page of volume one, frontispiece in volume two. A very good set with interiors in very good condition. The translation is dedicated to Her Grace, the Duchess Dowager of Beaufort, Baroness of Botetourt.

Crépy-- Jean Baptiste
RARE AND MONUMENTAL WALL MAP OF ASIA"L'Asie dress?e sur les nouvelles observations faites en touttes [sic] les parties de la terre et rectifi?es." Copper engraving by Jean-Baptiste Nolin, published in Paris by Jean-Baptiste Cr?py in 1781 on 4 central sheets, plus borders. Mounted on linen. Size: approx. 126 x 140 cm.Nolin's map was produced at the junction of the decline of the Dutch dominance of world exploration and cartography and the rise of the British and French. The map consequently provides a fitting bridge between the two eras.Geographically, the map features the Asian continent, including an allegorical cartouche, a geographical and a historical description in the lower decorative border, and 30 vignettes on Asian history rendering an interesting mix of biblical history of Asia Minor, the Tartarian invasion of China, the Crusades with the Sieges of Damietta and Jerusalem etc.Cartographically the map is based upon the work of Nolin?s father of the same name. It extends from the Mediterranean to New Guinea and the Japanese Kuril Islands, and from Spitzbergen to Northern Australia.The map is surrounded by elaborate decorative imagery including 30 decorative vignette medallions drawn from Greek, Roman, Jewish, Christian, and Islamic history. The extensive text along the lower margin features a Description G?ographique de l'Asie and a Description Historique de l'Asie. In the upper left corner, an especially resplendent cartouche illustrates Jesuit priests evangelizing to the diverse peoples of the continent.While exhibiting extensive confidence and detail throughout, t … [Click Below for Full Description]

CARVER, Jonathan
Printed for C. Dilly (et al), London, 1781. Third edition, second issue (with index). 543, [21]pp. Frontispiece of Carver. Five plates (four colored, including the tobacco plate that is frequently missing), two partially colored folding maps. Modern three-quarter morocco and marbled papercovered boards. A lovely, fine copy. Interesting early ink notation that the book was purchased from the library of Dr. John Jeffries (the first aeronaut to pass from England to France by balloon) when the library was sold at Boston by J.L. Cunningham. An important American travel narrative, this is considered the best edition with an expanded text, a biographical sketch of the author, an index, and the added plate of the tobacco plant. Text includes the first published mention of the word "Oregon." *Howes* C215; *Sabin* 11184. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
