        Carte des Indes et de la Chine

      Artist: Dezauche/de l Isle JA / G; issued in: Paris; date: ca 1781 - - technic: Copper print; - colorit: colored; - condition: Very good; - size (in cm): 62,5 x 65,5; - description: Map shows Southeast Asia with India and China; -vita of the artist: J. A. Dezauche was the successor to Guillaume De L'Isle and Philipe Buache. Guillaume De L isle (1626- 1757) Paris, was a French cartographer known for his popular and accurate maps of Europe and the newly explored Americas and Africa. De L isle was admitted into the French Académie Royale des Sciences, an institution financed by the French state. After that date, he signed his maps with the title of ?Géographe de l?Académie? Five years later, he moved to the Quai de l?Horloge in Paris, a true publishing hub where his business prospered. De L isle?s ascension through the ranks culminated in 1718 when he received the title of Premier Géographe du Roi. His new office consisted in teaching geography to the Dauphin, King Louis XIV?s son, a task for which he received a salary. De L sle?s reputation as a man of science probably helped .This supports the claim of the historian Mary Sponberg Pedley, who says ?once authority was established, a geographer?s name might retain enough value to support two or three generations of mapmakers? In De L isle?s case, it could be said that his accomplishments surpassed his father?s. Up to that point, he had drawn maps not only of European countries, such as Italy, Spain, Germany, Great Britain, Poland, and regions such as the Duchy of Burgundy, but he had also contributed to the empire?s claims to recently explored continents of Africa and the Americas.Like many cartographers of these days, De L isle did not travel with the explorers and elaborated the maps mostly in his office. The quality of his maps depended on a solid network that would provide him first-hand information. Given the family?s reputation and his own, De L isle had access to fairly recent accounts of travellers who were coming back from the New World, which gave him an advantage over his competitors. Being a member of the Académie, he was also aware of recent discoveries, especially in astronomy and measurement. When he could not confirm the accuracy of his source, he would indicate it clearly on his maps. For instance, his Carte de la Louisiane shows a river that the baron of Lahontan claimed he discovered, but no one else could validate it, so Delisle warned the viewer that its actual existence was in doubt. De L isle 's search for exactitude and intellectual honesty entangled him in a legal dispute in 1700 with Jean-Baptiste Nolin, a fellow cartographer. Noticing Nolin had used details that were considered original from his Map of the World, De L isle dragged Nolin in court to prove his plagiarism. In the end, Delisle managed to convince the jury of scientists that Nolin only knew the old methods of cartography and therefore that he had stolen the information from his manuscript. Nolin's maps were confiscated and he was forced to pay the court costs.The scientificity of the work produced by the De L isle family contrasted with the workshop of Sanson. While Sanson knowingly published outdated facts and mistakes, De L isle strived to present up-to-date knowledge. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        CXLVIII, CL, Pergolesi Inuet. Scult. and Publishd according to act of Parliament the ist of July 1781

      Artist: Anonymus ; issued in: Rome; date: 1781 - - technic: Copper print; colorit: gouache; condition: Very good; size (in cm): 44 x 23,5; description: Original hand gouache colored sculpture view after Volpator an Italian engraver. In 1760 he entered the famous copperplate printworks of Giambattista Remondini in Bassano and, under the guidance of Antonio Baratti, learnt the art of engraving and etching. During this early period he engraved, signing himself Jean Renard, four Rustic Capricci after Giovanni Battista Piazzetta, the Four Parts of the World after Jacopo Amigoni, the Four Ages of Man after Andrea Zucchi and the portrait of Giambattista Morgagni. On the invitation of Francesco Bartolozzi, who had noted his talent during a visit to Bassano, he moved to Venice in 1762 and was thus able to refine his technique while maintaining his connection with the Remondini concern as a technical consultant and commercial adviser.

        Vie privée de Louis XV, ou principaux événements, particularités et anecdotes de son règne.

      À Londres, Chez John Peter Lyton 1781 - 4 vol. in-12. Bradel demi-maroquin rouge à grain long (rel. du XIXe). Édition originale Certains exemplaires étaient livrés avec 9 portraits, qui ne se retrouvent d'ailleurs dans aucune des autres éditions. Si une note de l'éditeur nous indique en guise d'Avertissement que l'auteur, ancien avocat, connu pour avoir participé à la rédaction des mémoires dits de Bachaumont, se propose de développer le sujet en "quatre époques principales", l'essentiel de l'ouvrage est consacré à la guerre contre l'Angleterre et en particulier aux affaires américaines dans les colonies du Canada et des régions de l'Acadie, traitant ainsi des conséquences de la Guerre de Sept ans pour cet empire colonial et les répercussions dans la politique intérieure du pays. "Rempli d'anecdotes très curieuses qu'en vain on chercheroit ailleurs", dont une large part est inscrite dans les "pièces recueillies pour servir à cette histoire", on trouvera notamment des documents intéressants la Compagnie d'Occident ou celle des Indes, quelques rapports sur les combats contre les escadres anglaises dans l'Océan Indien (Isle de France et Bourbon, Pondichéry), les Mémoires pour le sieur comte de Broglio, ambassadeur, au sujet des colonies françaises de l'Amérique, résumant la situation dans cette région, ou encore le récit du siège de Louisbourg en juin 1757, symbole de la puissance et de la résistance française en Amérique, le récit des évênements survenus au Québec et les combats menés par le marquis de Montcalm en août de la même année. On observera en outre de très nombreuses indications sur la marine (état des vaisseaux) ainsi que de brèves notices politiques et biographiques dont une liste des "gens d'affaire" apparaissant sous forme de tableau.

        A Fruit Piece

      London: John Boydell, 1781. Mezzotint, by Richard Earlom (some paper abrasion to outer blank margins). A very fine mezzotint after the work of Jan van Huysum:: the "last of the great Dutch masters'' (Mitchell), the "Phoenix of Flower Painters" (Weyerman)."It is the fate of some painters to be celebrated in their lifetime only and to be disregarded by later generations...Other painters pass their lives in obscurity only to be acclaimed by a succeeding century. A few, a very few, achieve a fame which is universal in their own day, never falters, and remains unchanged today. Jan van Huysum is among them. To Weyerman...Van Huysum was the 'phoenix of Flower Painters.' To Vertue, writing of six paintings he saw in an English collection in the 1740s, they were 'the most inimitable pictures that were ever seen.' In Van Huysum's lifetime the Kings of Poland and Prussia, the Elector of Saxony, Prince William of Hesse, the Dukes of Orleans and Mecklenburg, and Sir Robert Walpole were eager patrons. When Catherine the Great, thirty years after Van Huysum's death, wanted to buy the Walpole Collection, the greatest in England, a valuation was made by Benjamin West...on the evidence of saleroom results at the time he placed a fair valuation of 1200 pounds on the pair of Van Huysums...In the nineteenth century the Rothschilds and others were avid collectors...Today the very finest Van Huysums are not available...The only fair way to judge an artist is by assessing his success in what he set out to achieve. By such a yardstick Van Huysum is supremely successful..."Jan, born at Amsterdam in 1682, was the eldest son and pupil of Justus van Huysum. Justus was the head of a family enterprise...with three younger sons assisting: Justus the younger, Jacob and Michiel. Their large-scale production met the demand for decorative flowerpieces...Jan did not choose to follow his father's example. From his marriage in 1704 until his death in 1749 Jan appears to have stayed in Amsterdam, but independent of the family. He jealously guarded his success...working in strict privacy that none might see the preparation of his pigments nor how he worked...He is said to have worked from the real flower and gone to Haarlem each summer to study specimens...Van Huysum possessed an unerring elegance of composition which enabled him to avoid the inbalance, the over-abundance that others risked...The artist left no word, no indication of how he really painted, no hint of his own philosophy. So the wondrous skills of Jan Van Huysum, the last of the great Dutch masters, leaves us as bemused as those of his predecessors a century and a half earlier." (Peter Mitchell, European Flower Painters, pp. 142-149)Richard Earlom was one of the few engravers technically equipped to do justice to Van Huysum's work. Earlom "succeeded in inducing his father to place him under the tuition of Cipriani, and in 1765 became known to Alderman Boydell, who entertained so high an opinion of the young artist that he employed him to make drawings from the celebrated collection of pictures at Houghton, and now at St. Petersburg, for the engravers to work from. In 1757 he was awarded a premium by the Society of Arts. In the art of mezzotint engraving Earlom was his own instructor. His plates show great technical skill, especially those of flowers after Van Huysum, and are highly valued by the connoisseurs. They were produced in a style of engraving which till then had never been thought capable of representing the delicate texture of flowers... He engraved over sixty plates in mezzotint, among which are The Royal Academy, after Zoffany; Samuel Barrington, after Reynolds; Richard, viscount Fitzwilliam, after Howard; William Henry, duke of Gloucester, after Hamilton; Horatio, lord Nelson, after Beechey; William Pitt, after Dupont; the set of six plates of the Marriage à la Mode, after Hogarth; two flower pieces, after Huysum; Blacksmith's Shop, and the Forge, after Wright." (DNB)Dunthorne 313.

        Abhandlungen von den Nerven und ihren Krankheiten. 4 Bde.

      Winterthur & Leipzig, Steiner, 1781-1783, 8, ca. 2700 pp., Pappbände der Zeit frisches Exemplar. Erstes Handbuch der Neurologie ! Erste deutsche Ausgabe der frühesten, ganz der Neuropsychiatrie gewidmeten Abhandlung. Samuel Auguste André David Tissot (1728-1797), der berühmte Lausanner Arzt und führende Praktiker Europas, hatte das Manuskript zu diesem Handbuch bereits 1768 zusammengestellt. Aber erst 1778 bis 1783 wurde es in französischer Sprache veröffentlicht. In einer klaren Sprache, die das Werk noch heute lesenswert macht, unterscheidet Tissot entschieden zwischen den eigentlichen Nervenkrankheiten und anderen Erkrankungen. Ausführliche Literaturhinweise, auch zu heute meist vergessenen Autoren, bereichern das Werk. Seine berühmte Monographie über die "fallende Sucht", eine der profundesten frühen Abhandlungen über die Epilepsie, ist im Band 4 unserer Reihe abgedruckt. Tissot behandelt auch in großer Breite die Beziehungen zwischen vollständiger sexueller Enthaltsamkeit und psychopatholog. Zuständen. Er berührt dabei auch Probleme des Unbewussten und der Unterdrückung. Mit Recht kann man daher Tissot als "Freudian before Freud" (Harms) bezeichnen.Tissot, one of the most celebrated physicians of his time, was the eighteenth-century advocate of the importance of temperament in mental disease. He wrote probably one of the first monographs devoted exclusively to the nervous system. Tissot discussed in great detail the problem of the relationship between complete sexual continence and psychopathology. Here he also presented a rudimentary concept of the unconscious or subconscious, and he touches an area that brings to mind Freud's theory of suppression. Classical Works in Neurology, 51 Harms, Origins of Modern Psychiatry, 70-74 Bucher, Tissot u. sein Traité des Nerfs Hirsch V, p.594f. Olivier, Médecine et Santé II, p.1060ff.

He claims in the above work to have been the first to use glass plates with electrical machines in 1756, and describes an improved Leyden Jar constructed by him for measuring electricity.""While preparing for his medical degree, Sigaud de la Fond (1730-1810) attended the famous course of public lectures given by Abbé Nollet, who aroused in him such a lively interest in experimental science that Sigaud became first a tutor in philosophy and mathematics and then a demonstrator in experimental science at the Collége Louis-le-Grand. In 1760 he succeeded the Abbé Nollet in his chair at Louis-le-Grand. In 1770 Sigaud became a professor of surgery at the school of Saint-Côme.

        Revolutionary War Autograph Pay Order Signed by Samuel Huntington while he was President of the Continental Congress

      Near Fine. Approximately 8" x 6.5". Laid paper with one deckled edge and a partial watermark. Old folds, a little soiling, and a very faint spot to the left of the signature, but nice and near fine.Huntington writes: "Mr. Treasurer Lawrence is requested to send me by Mr. Brown on his next return to Philadelphia the one hundred pounds specie mentioned in my last letter : if not already forwarded. Sam'l. Huntington." Undated but endorsed on the verso by Jesse Brown: "Hartford March 6, 1781 Rec'd. of Pay Table Comte. on order on Treasurer for one hundred pounds in lawful silver money. Order was in [?] of Excellency Samuel Huntington Esq. and for which he is to account. Recev by Me - Jesse Brown."Huntington was a Signed of the Declaration of Independence, President of the Continental Congress from 1779-1781, and the Governor of Connecticut from 1786-1796. There is some evidence that Jesse Brown was an Continental Army post rider with a route between Philadelphia and Hartford. In one instance he was taken captive by Royalists at a public house between Fairfield and Norwalk, but later gained his freedom. Huntington correspondence isn't rare, but documents signed as President of the Continental Congress are desirable and less commonly found.

El texto se publicó en vista de la ediciones príncipes, y el Reverendo Bowle lo ilustró con anotaciones y estudios de primera mano, que aún hoy conservan interés. Basta consignar que el trabajo de Bowle ha sido fuente inagotable, donde ha bebido todos los comentadores del Quijote, la mayoría callando la procedencia, y declarándola únicamente los más sinceros". En el mismo año que la primera edición se publicó la segunda (que es la que ofrecemos aquí), muy mejorada con respecto a la primera." N. S. NORIO [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Manuscript Account of Provisions Supplied to the Army of Count Rochambeau by Wadsworth & Carter, 1781

      [Hartford, Connecticut]. 1781. Manuscript Document. Bifolium. Accounts on two pages, docketed "Copy" on a third page. Approximately 8" x 13.25". Laid paper untrimmed. Slightly soiled, about fine.An accounting of supplies and services furnished by Wadsworth & Carter to Count Rochambeau's Army from January through March 1781. The first page accounts for supplies obtained by Peter Colt, Jere. Platt, and Henry Champion, Jr., which included large quantities of corn, oats, hay, sheep, and oxen.The second and more substantive page accounts for payments due several express couriers including Tim. Bernard, Thad. Chapin, Ebenezer Frost, John Hall, Nathaniel Goodwin, Ebenezer Center, and others, mostly for transporting funds, and include payment for "going to New York & fetching money."At that time, Rochambeau's army was at Newport, Rhode Island, while Wadsworth & Carter was a Hartford, Connecticut firm. One of the principles was Jeremiah Wadsworth who had grown wealthy as captain of a ship engaged in the West Indies trade. He served as a commissary officer for the Continental Army during 1777-1779, then in 1780, with the rank of Colonel, he took command of the Commissary Department for Count Rochambeau's army, where he remained till the end of the war. After the war he served as a member of the Continental Congress and in the House of Representatives.Count Rochambeau was sent by King Louis XVI with 6,000 regular troops to aid General George Washington in the Revolutionary War. He landed in Newport, and remained there a year because the French fleet was blockaded off of Narragansett. In July, 1781, he joined Washington and the two armies marched south against Cornwallis at Yorktown, which effectively ended the war when Cornwallis' army was trapped on the peninsula.Interesting documentation of Rochambeau before the Yorktown campaign. .
