        A topographical map of the Republick of Genua taken from the celebrated Spanish map by Chaffrion with many additions & improvements, 1784

      Acquaforte e bulino, 1784, firmata in basso a sinistra. Bellissimo esemplare, stampato su quattro grandi fogli di carta vergata coeva, tagliati in segmenti, applicati su tela e più volte ripiegati. In ottimo stato di conservazione. La mappa murale della Liguria del Gravier è una variante della carta pubblicata a Londra da Andrew Dury e William Faden nel 1764/5. Come annunciato nel titolo di entrambe le carte, che peraltro è ripetuto in quattro lingue differenti, la mappa deriva da quella di Joseph Chaffrion, Milano 1685. Rispetto all?originale dello Chaffrion le versioni Dury e Gravier recano nel mare due cartigli con carte dettagliate della Corsica e della Sardegna, non descritte dal Piloni e dal Cervoni. La carta genovese, probabilmente realizzata con la lastra del Dury, rispetto alla quale vengono apportate delle varianti, è dedicata al cittadino Michel Angelo Cambiaso dallo stampatore. Il cartiglio con il titolo e dedica è leggermente variato nei motivi ornamentali; in basso a destra, è presente un altro cartiglio aggiunto, con il particolare dell?isola di Capraia. Yves Gravier, noto anche con il nome italianizzato di Ivone, era un libraio ed editore di origini francesi, probabilmente di Marsiglia, attivo a Genova tra il 1780 ed il 1801 ?..sous la loge de Banchi?. Molto noto soprattutto per aver pubblicato le edizioni italiane delle opere del cartografo marittimo Joseph Roux. Carta molto rara e decorativa. Genova Genua AA.VV La Liguria nelle carte e nelle vedute antiche, pp. 140/141 (la carta del Dury). 1840 1070

        Stirpes novae, aut minus cognitae, quas descriptionibus et iconibus illustravit.

      Parisiis, P.-D. Pierres, 1784-1785. 6 parts (bound in one volumes). Folio (504 x 340mm). With titles to all 6 parts and 91 (2 double-page) engraved plates (of which 54 after P.J. Redouté). 19th century half calf, spine in 7 compartments with red gilt lettered label. "This is one of the more delightful flower books of the eighteenth century. L'Héritier de Brutelle was an amateur botanist of unusual abilities and resources. Luckily, he persuaded the young Redouté to make fifty-four drawings for his 'magnum opus'. The book is splendid in its spacious descriptions, its charming exotic plates, its implications for taxonomic history; and fascinating as an imposing piece of eighteenth-century bookmaking, with its series of fascicles printed on broadsheets, its bibliographical algebra. It is in 'Stirpes novae' that Luxemburg-born Pierre Joseph Redouté (1759-1840) emerges as an extraordinary botanical artist. He had the great good luck to have the very fine Dutch artist Gerrit van Spaëndonck (1746-1822) as his master in drawing, and L'Héritier de Brutelle as his instructor in 'choses botaniques'"'(Hunt). Although the author had planned to publish more parts (with at least 120 plates), this fine botanical rarity remained unfinished. "Contains illustrations of about 10 Cape plants" (Kerkham, Southern Botanical Literature 1600-1988, No. 384). Apart from Pierre Joseph Redoute the following artists were involved: Prévost, Fossier, James Sowerby, Fréret, Aubriet, Bruguière, Jossigny and Henri Joseph Redouté. Cat. Redouteana 1; Dunthorne 246; Great Flower Books 64; Nissen BBI, 1190; Hunt 673; Huntia 2, pp. 29-58.

        Plano del puerto de Trapano situado en la parte occidental de la isla de Sicilia con toda su principal sonda, marcas y enfilaciones para entrar con seguridad para el uso de Dn. Cayetano Valdes copiado por Josef Cordero en el puerto de Malta anno 1784.

      Manoscritto policromo ad acquerello dell?epoca, eseguito con estrema finezza. Raffigura tutta la costa vicino a Trapani e le isole Favignana e Levanzo indicando le profondità. Sotto al titolo nel riquadro in basso a destra vi è una lunga accurata istruzione per giungere a Trapani partendo da Favignana con la nave senza incappare in secche e scogli; seppur topograficamente semplice, trattandosi di un portolano, il manoscritto è di notevole fascino oltre che di grande rarità.

        Dell'utilità dei conduttori elettrici. Dissertazione pubblicata per ordine del governo

      Marelli 1784 In 8°, pp. XXXIV + 304 con 1 tav. all'acq. f.t. più volte rip. Frontespizio inciso all'acq. con vignetta.  Galleria di tarlo restaurata alle prime 15 cc. e altra galleria restaurata più piccola al margine interno inferiore ad una ventina di cc. Qualche leggera gora. Legatura in cart. ed. decorata restaurata. Esemplare con danni riparati, peraltro copia freschissima in ottimo stato di conservazione. Dedica al contropiatto anteriore al "sig. professore Pratolongo da parte dell'autore". Segue, più in basso, la firma di possesso di G. A. Mongiardino (Giovanni Antonio Mongiardino, medico e docente all'Università di Genova). Ed. orig. di questa importante opera di Landriani: "erudita ed elegante dissertazione" in cui "dopo avere dottamente parlato della natura del fulmine, dei suoi terribili effetti... dimostra come l'elettricità artificiale tutti li imita". Quindi passa a descrivere "l'asta metallica del Franklin mercè la quale il fluido fulmineo si sottopone all'analisi e si ritrova in tutto simile all'elettrica materia... passa l'Autore alle sperienze de' cervi volanti e riferisce il sorprendente fenomeno accaduto al Sig. Romus in Francia per cui viene a verificarsi la proposta fatta dal Franklin di difendere cioè dal fulmine le case con innalzare sopra le medesime un'asta metallica... ecco che qui l'A. entra direttamente a trattare dei conduttori dimostrandone con ogni genere di prove la loro utilità..." (Effemeridi letterarie di Roma, XIII, 1784, p. 303 e ss.). Landriani (1751-1816) pubblicò nel 1775 le Ricerche fisiche intorno alla salubrità dell'aria, uno dei primi esempi italiani di chimica pneumatica. Ciò gli valse la chiamata alla cattedra di fisica, allora istituita, delle Scuole Braidensi. I suoi esperimenti sulle arie e sugli acidi ebbero risonanza europea. Ebbe numerosi incarichi dal governo. Nel 1791 condusse una missione diplomatica presso la corte di Sassonia a Dresda dove continuò a occuparsi di studi di fisica, diffondendo le recenti scoperte elettrofisiologiche di Galvani. ITA

Edizione originale di quest'opera che partendo dalla sua più famosa dedicata ai commerci europei nelle indie e nelle americhe, si occupa specificatamente della colonizzazione della Francia nelle americhe. Dopo aver analizzato il ritardo francese nella corsa coloniale, Raynal descrive i tentativi fatti verso le Antille a partire dagli inizi del  XVII sec. Tratta poi della conquista della Guyana, di Santa Lucia, della Martinica, di Guadalupe, di Santo Domingo e di Tabago. Raynal dopo un inizio ecclesiastico, abbandonato il sacerdozio si fa conoscere come apostolo della libertà. Il ritratto sulla terza edizione della sua importante opera sul commercio degli europei nelle Indie, opera avversata e conndatta al rogo, lo obbliga a fuggire, prima in Svizzera poi in Prussia, tornato in Francia nel 1784, si dedica a istituire premi accademici. Con la rivoluzione si metterà nei guai con molte critiche agli eccessi del terrore. La sua fama gli eviterà la ghigliottina. ITA

        Le Lever de la mariée

      circa 1784. Engraving. Proof before letters. Printed on laid paper with watermark. In excellent condition with the exception of some very light foxing in the right margin. Image size: 15 x 11 7/8 inches. 18 5/8 x 13 3/8 inches. 18 7/8 x 14 1/8 inches. A fantastic proof before letters of this decorative Rococo print of a happy couple the morning after their wedding. Genre painting came back into favor when the Academy admitted Watteau's "The Pilgrimage to Cythera" to its ranks in 1717. From that point on a fashion for decorative subjects swept the country influencing an entire generation of French artists. This craze for intimate boudoir scenes did not subside until after the onset of the Revolution when, the frivolous tastes of the aristocratic elite were dispelled and a more sober era descended upon French art. This print is a wonderful example of French Rococo tastes. The picture is set in a sumptuous bedroom the morning after a young, aristocratic couple's wedding. The young bride sits on her father's lap while he speaks with his new son-in-law. Two chambermaids ready her toiletries while another closes the curtains on the marriage bed. This beautiful print is the pendant picture to Pierre Antoine Baudouin's "Le Coucher de la Mariee" which depicts the young newlyweds retiring to bed on their wedding night. Baudouin's painting was engraved by Moreau le jeune and finished by F. P. Simonet. Dugoure's frivolous scene is beautifully engraved by Triere creating a truly captivating image, which epitomizes the grand era of French Rococo art.

Text: 1p. publisher's advertisements at end of vol.III. 1 folding letterpress table, 24 engraved maps, coastal profiles and charts (14 folding), extra-illustrated with a duplicate folding engraved "Chart of the NW Coast of America and NE Coast of Asia" which is also present in the atlas. Atlas vol.: 63 engraved plates, plans and maps (one double-page, one folding), uncut. Text: contemporary tree calf, expertly rebacked to style, the flat spines divided into six compartments by double fillets enclosing a neo-classical roll, red/brown morocco lettering-piece in the second compartment, green morocco label with onlaid disc of red/brown morocco with volume number, the remaining compartments elaborately tooled in gilt with stylised foliage cornerpieces around various large centrally-place tools; Atlas: expertly bound to style in half calf over marbled paper-covered boards, the flat spine elaborately tooled in gilt uniform to the text. A fine set of the first edition of the official account of Cook's third and last voyage: a cornerstone among travel and voyage literature on the exploration of Hawaii and the northwest coast of America, Canada and Alaska. This copy particularly desirable with the plates in the atlas uncut. "The famous accounts of Captain Cook's three voyages form the basis for any collection of Pacific books. In three great voyages Cook did more to clarify the geographical knowledge of the southern hemisphere than all his predecessors had done together. He was really the first scientific navigator and his voyages made great contributions to many fields of knowledge" (Hill). "Cook's third voyage was organized to seek the Northwest Passage and to return [the islander] Omai to Tahiti. Officers of the crew included William Bligh, James Burney, James Colnett, and George Vancouver. John Webber was appointed artist to the expedition. After calling at Kerguelen Island, Tasmania, New Zealand, and the Cook, Tonga, and Society Islands, the expedition sailed north and discovered Christmas Island and the Hawaiian Islands, which Cook named the Sandwich Islands. Cook charted the American west coast from Northern California through the Bering Strait as far north as latitude 70 degrees 44 minutes before he was stopped by pack ice. He returned to Hawaii for the winter and was killed in an unhappy skirmish with the natives over a boat. Charles Clarke took command and after he died six months later, the ships returned to England under John Gore. Despite hostilities with the United States and France, the scientific nature of this expedition caused the various governments to exempt these vessels from capture. The voyage resulted in what Cook judged his most valuable discovery - the Hawaiian Islands" (Hill).

The atlas volume is bound in landscape format rather than portrait. the atlas volume contains the rare "Death of Cook" plate separately issued. Beddie 1543. Lada Mocarski 37. Hill 361 the official account of Cook's third and final voyage, undertaken to seek the Northwest Passage from the Pacific. The officers of this voyage aboard the Resolution form a who's who of later Pacific exploration, including William Bligh, George Vancouver, and James Burney. Cook visited New Zealand, Tahiti, and other islands before making what he considered his greatest discovery, the Hawaiian Islands, which he named the Sandwich Islands. Cook then headed north reaching present-day Oregon, then following the coast north to Alaska, sailing through the Bering Strait, where the ship was stopped by pack ice in August of 1778. In January 1779 Cook returned to the Hawaiian Islands where he had previously been welcomed, but tensions quickly mounted, prompting Cook to set sail on February 4. Several days later a storm broke the Resolution's foremast, and Cook returned to the islands to make repairs. The natives, not happy to see the Englishmen again stole of the ship's boats, Cook took a Hawaiian chief hostage and was killed returning to the ship with his prisoner. The first two volumes of this set are from Cook's journals; the third volume was written by Captain James King, who succeeded Cook. It is quit unusual for the atlas to be bound up this way. It is also quite unusual for the atlas to have the Death of Cook plate..
