        The Despatch [His Grace the Duke of Wellington, During the Peninsular War, to the British Army, this Print is respectfully dedicated by John Burnet]" originaler Kupferstich und Aquatinta/copper engraving and aquatint ca./approx.60x46,5cm

      - (Darstellung/image size) von und nach John Burnet ( 1784 in Musselburgh bei Edinburgh - 1868 in Stoke Newington bei London) auf Papier/paper (72x52cm) auf Unterlagenkarton montiert/mounted on cardboard; unterhalb der Darstellung in der Platte typographisch betitelt, datiert und bezeichnet; Hodgson & Graves London 1839 [Das großartige wie großformatige Blatt mit mehreren Randläsuren, daher wohl die Montierung auf den Unterlagenkarton und an den Rändern braunfleckig. Mittig auf Höhe des Knies Wellingtons mit durch die Montierung verursachter Quetschfalte. The as great as large engraving at the edges with some bounded tears (may be the reason the engraving was mountedand on cardboard) and brown spotted. In the mid on high of Wellingtons knee with a pleat.] This fictitious, dramatic image is a sophisticated composition meant to celebrate Wellington's iconic status. He writes a despatch as a building burns behind him in an imaginary incident from the Peninsular Wars. The white lining of his cloak creates a focal point in the darkness while the perspective and lighting from below increase his heroic stature. Surrounded by supplicating locals he epitomises the ideal of the British army abroad. By the time this print was published in 1839, the dust had long settled on Wellington's victories, but the great successes of the campaign in Spain and Portugal of 1809-14 still occupied a central role in the public imagination.

        Télephe en XII livres

      Et se trouve à Paris, chez Pissot, Londres [i.e. Paris] 1784 - Pechmeja's best-sellingprose poem, published anonymously under the patronage of one Madame de Beauvau, presumably the Marquise de Boufflers. The workenjoyed both enthusiastic and scathing reviews from the most celebrated literary figures of the time. Readers admired the work's literary beauty and its touching description of friendship, while others found fault with the moral and economic message (which would be described as socialist in the modern sense). Among the most notable Télephedetractors was the author Jean-François de la Harpe, who wrote "[The author] seems, like Rousseau, to make a crime out of private property, without which no society could exist. He doesn't want children to inherit their fathers' fortunes, as if inheritance wasn't a natural right, and as if the fathers themselves didn't work for the sake of their children" (my translation). Others, including the relatively enthusiastic reviewer the Baron von Grimm, were nonplussed by Pechmeja's dour description of the fate of man and the injustices of oppression, maintaining that while virtue must always be exercised, little happiness can ultimately be experienced even with the purest intentions (my paraphrase of Michaud and Grimm). Grimm rejects comparisons made to Fénelon's novel Les Aventures de Télemaque(1699), saying that if Marmontel's Les Incas(1747) is the Télemaquefor the age of the encyclopedia, then Télepheis the Télemaquefor economists. Within three weeks of publication, sales had dropped dramatically and while the book was reprinted once in the 1790s and subsequently translated into English and German, Télephenever re-experienced its initial popularity.

Erste Ausgabe, entstanden während Schlettweins Professur an der Universität Gießen. - Schlettwein (1731-1802) gilt als der bedeutendste deutsche Vertreter des sogenannten Physiokratismus, einer aus Frankreich herrührenden Wirtschaftsanschauung. Nach dem Studium an der Universität Jena wurde Schlettwein im Jahre 1763 an den Hof nach Karlsruhe berufen, wo er bis 1773 wirkte und seine Begeisterung für die physiokratische Lehre, insbesondere Mirabeaus und Du Pont de Nemours, mit dem Markgrafen Karl Friedrich von Baden-Durlach teilte. Er war bestrebt, Verbesserungen in der Landwirtschaft zu erzielen. Im Jahre 1777 wurde Schlettwein Dekan der ersten ökonomischen Fakultät an einer deutschen Universität, nämlich an der Universität Gießen. Er blieb in dieser Funktion bis 1785. Danach zog er sich auf Gut Beseritz in Mecklenburg-Strelitz zurück, wo er weiter in der Landwirtschaft experimentierte. Hier starb er, weitgehend vereinsamt. Versand D: 2,00 EUR

        [Vols. I and II:] Figures of non-descript Shells collected in the different Voyages to the South Seas since the year 1764 ... [Vols. III and IV:] The Universal Conchologist, exhibiting the Figure of every known Shell, accurately drawn and painted after Nature: with a new systematic arrangement by the Author...

      London, sold at his house no. 16 Great Marlborough Street, [1784-] 1789 [-1812]. 4 volumes. 4to (335 x 273mm), vol. I with engraved frontispiece of a shell, engraved title, engraved dedication to the King, two engraved plates of medals, pp. 27 [1, blank] letterpress text in English and French, engraved 'Explanatory Table', listing the shells and their sources, the three further volumes with engraved title and 'Explanatory Table' for each volume, with a total of 160 hand-coloured aquatint and watercolour plates (not counting the frontispiece) containing 355 figures, mostly depicting two views of a shell within a quadruple-ruled border; a few faint marginal waterstains on a few leaves, some very occasional marginal spotting, generally a very fresh, attractive copy, bound in contemporary full red straight-grained morocco, panelled in blind with interlocking panels on sides, spines tooled in blind, gilt ornaments on the turn-ins, gilt edges, with the bookbinder Welcher's label on free front endleaves. A rare complete set of 'The Universal Conchologist', in the large-format 'deluxe' issue (see below). A fine copy of one of the most attractive shell books ever produced. The first two volumes, devoted to shells of the South Seas, were originally published as a separate work in 1784. Martyn then extended the work to four volumes with an additional 80 plates. 'From the introduction to 'The universal conchologist' we learn that it was "to commence with the figures of shells (most of them rare and nondescript) which have been collected by several officers of the ships under the command of Captain Byron, Wallis, Cook, and others made to the South Sea" ... When the 'Resolution and the Discovery' returned from the third and last voyage in 1780 [the dealer] Humphrey purchased some more shells, but the bulk of the conchological spoils went this time to Thomas Martyn, a knowledgeable dealer, versatile writer and gifted artist ... Unlike Humphrey and other dealers who snapped up the Cook shells Thomas Martyn had more than a pecuniary interest in his purchases. Martyn's reason for wanting to corner the market in South Seas shells was entirely praiseworthy; although he sold many of the shells he had bought, he illustrated the finest in 'The Universal Conchologist', his magnum opus [and] a work which, for beauty, has seldom been surpassed in the history of conchological iconography' (Dance, A history of shell collecting)./Martyn purchased shells brought back from Cook's third voyage, although, as he wrote to Henry Seymer on 9 December 1780, 'I have purchased, amounting to 400 gns, more than 2 thirds of the whole brought home, Nevertheless I do not abound either in the variety of the new or many duplicates of the known ones that are valuable'. As a result, he modified his project and instead of presenting two shells on each plate, presented only one but depicted in two different views. Besides the specimens deriving from Cook's voyages, Martyn included specimens from the collections of the Duchess of Portland, the Countess of Bute, John Hunter, the Forsters, and others./The fine plates were drawn by Martyn and engraved and coloured by his 'Academy' of young men whom he had trained as natural history artists. The plates, each showing a single species in two positions, were engraved in soft aquatint and printed lightly inked, so that when hand-coloured they would resemble watercolours./Thomas Martyn (ca 1760-1816) was a native of Coventry, who lived in London at various addresses, 'most notably 10, Great Marlborough Street, Westminster, where he established his academy for the painting of Natural History. Besides the present work, his 'chef d'oeuvre', he published works on a dirigible balloon he designed, and various works of entomology, and colour theory./The complete four-volume work is complicated by various issue points and varieties of format, dating, etc. There are variants amongst some of the plates, some being intended for the standard quarto issue, and others being adapted for the 'select' issue, which is often mounted on large sheets of blank blue-grey mounts. Unusually, the present copy contains the 'select' issue plates, but unmounted./The single shell that serves as a frontispiece usually bears the caption 'Aphrodite' in Greek, and is framed by a gilt Greek key design; here it is uncaptioned and unframed. Several of the plates are also unframed. Otherwise the present copy conforms to the issue points of the 'select', folio issue, with the plates within larger frames. The following differences were first noticed by Dall: Plate 43 has two views of shell. There is only one view in the quarto. Plate 57 and 59; same remark. Plates 61 and 63, the figures are side by side. In the quarto (owing to the smaller page?) they are placed diagonally' (Dall, 'Supplementary notes' p. 186). I have also noticed that the following plates also differ, with the ones in the present copy being placed side-by-side within larger frames: 2, 30, and 35./The plates are on heavy woven paper, some of it with an undated Whatman watermark. The format of the plates is altered from portrait to landscape, in rectangular rather than mostly square-ruled frames, and with the rules quadruple rather than double. As a result, here they are bound in sideways, with the plate numbers in the upper inner corner./Nine plates in the present copy (see below) are signed by one of the artists trained by Martin, John Harris, who was an accomplished illustrator of numerous natural history works of the late eighteenth, early nineteenth century./John Harris '(1767-1832), watercolour painter and illustrator, was born in London on 5 June 1767, the second son of Moses Harris (1730-c. 1788), the artist and entomologist. He was brought up at Deptford, which gave him a taste for marine subjects. He was articled c. 1780 to the entomologist Thomas Martyn, whose Academy for Illustrating and Painting Natural History was in Great Marlborough Street. Until about 1789 he also worked for James Edwards, the bookseller in Pall Mall, colouring prints and books. He exhibited landscapes and topographical subjects in watercolour at the Royal Academy from 1797, when he was living at Amelia Street, Walworth, to 1815, by which time he had moved to 27 Mansion House Row, Kennington./'... According to a memoir by the son, which is tipped in a Bible now at the Houghton Library, Harvard, "as an Artist in the painting of Subjects of natural History Viz Insects, Shells &c &c He was I Believe, without a rival" (Weimerskirch, 249)' (Huon Mallalieu in ODNB; see P. J. Weimerskirch, 'John Harris, sr., 1767-1832: a memoir by his son', Book Collector, 42 (1993), pp 245-52). /Eight of the plates in vols III and IV are signed in ink 'J.H. pinx[i]t' and one, plate 144, is inscribed 'Paintd by J Harris Mansion House Street Kennington 1812' (plates 86, 87, 94, 119 in vol III and 138, 144 [signed], 150, 151, and 159 in vol IV). This date accords with other evidence that the last volume was not completed until early in the nineteenth century. It also tallies with the watermark date 1811 on the free endleaf of the final volume, indicating that the volumes were bound about that time./The binder, Samuel Welcher, was partner with the other binder of 'select' copies, L. Staggemeier, at nos 11 and 12 Villiers Street in the Strand. Both were German émigrées and were in partnership as Staggemeier and Welcher from 1799 to 1809, after which Welcher remained at 12 Villiers Street./The 'select' issue also differs in the letterpress setting and text in volume one, having the half-title 'The Universal Conchologist' on page 1, and 27 pages of text; the ordinary issue has 39 pages, divided into 'Introduction' and 'Preface'.//The engraved plate of medals honours noble patrons of the work (the Emperor of Germany, the King of Naples, the Pope). The first is dated 1788. and the second 1792.//See William Healey Dall, 'Thomas Martyn and the Universal Conchologist', Proceedings of the United States National Museum, vol XXIX, pp 415-432 (Washington 1905), and 'Supplementary Notes ...', idem, vol XXXIII, pp 185-192 (Washington 1907)//cf Ferguson I 4,40; Forbes I 79, 80, 175, 176; Nissen ZBI, 2728.

      à Amsterdam (Bordeaux), 1784, in 8°, de 83pp., cart. papier marbré moderne genre ancien, bon exemplaire. Mention "Au fr.: Burgaud à Charente" au f. de titre. Rare recueil de planches maçonniques prononcées par Fr. Mocet, Riala, Themola, Séca et Célaphon, de l'Ordre des Frères de l'Harmonie, loge mesmérienne de Bordeaux. En mars 1783 Mesmer crée la "loge de l'harmonie", qui deviendra plus tard "la Société de l'Harmonie Universelle". Cette Société para-maçonnique développa rapidement ses activités en province. La réception et la "révélation du secret" se faisait au travers d'un rituel de type maçonnique, et moyennant finance. L. Cl. de Saint-Martin deviendra le 27e membre de la "Société de l'Harmonie" le 4 février 1784 mais il s'éloignera progressivement de Mesmer dont il regrette l'insistance matérialiste sur l'action du fluide. En 1785, Mesmer expulse Bergasse, Kornmann et d'autres membres influents de la Société de l'harmonie. Cette scission reflète des divisions politiques, et Mesmer quitte finalement la France, reprochant à ses élèves de ne pas avoir gardé son "secret ". ¶ Dorbon n°203 "Opuscule très rare dirigé spécialement contre Mesmer et la loge mesmérienne de Bordeaux fondée par Mocet..." - Caillet n°709 "très rare" - Fesch col. 141 - Crabtree n°34 "The pronouncement of a group of Bordeaux freemasons concernign their views on mesmerism.

        Teilnachlaß der Familie Niemetschek-Neuling-Richter. Sadska, Prag, Wien u. a. O., 1784-1868.

      1784. Über 100 Briefe, Dokumente und Notizen von, an und zu Franz Xaver Niemetschek und Familie. Umfangreicher Teilnachlaß aus der direkten Nachkommenschaft des ersten Mozartbiographen. Zwar enthalten die Dokumente keine neuen Informationen zu Mozart selbst, jedoch werfen sie neues Licht auf das bislang nur unvollständig erfaßte Leben Niemetscheks und beleuchten darüber hinaus facettenreich das groß- und bildungsbürgerliche Milieu der Biedermeierzeit in Wien und Böhmen. Insbesondere die Diskussion, ob Niemetschek Mozart jemals persönlich begegnet ist, erhält neue Nahrung durch den Beleg, daß der früh musikbegeisterte Gelehrte (selbst Pianist) während seiner Studienzeit in Prag 1787 durchaus Gelegenheit hatte, Mozart bei seinen Auftritten zu sehen. - Der im böhmischen Sadská geborene Schulmann F. X. Niemetschek war schon 1778 als Schüler nach Prag gekommen; ab 1794 war er Erzieher und Unterkunftgeber des neunjährigen Carl Thomas Mozart (bis 1797). Seine Frau Theresia (geb. Schnell), Tochter eines Prager Kaufmanns und in den frühen 1790er Jahren eine der gefragtesten Hutmacherinnen der Stadt, hatte im Prager Salon des Pianisten F. X. Duschek und seiner Frau Josephine die Familie Mozart bereits 1787 kennengelernt. Während Friedrich Schlichtegroll, der andere frühe Biograph Mozarts, seine Kenntnisse über den Musiker nur von dessen Salzburger Freund Albert von Mölk und der Schwester Maria Anna Mozart bezog (weswegen sein Bericht die Jugend Mozarts ausführlicher behandelt und die Wiener Zeit geringer gewichtet), hatte Niemetschek die Witwe Constanze als Gewährsfrau. Er konnte den Komponisten deshalb jedenfalls nach den Mitteilungen Constanzes, denen der Duscheks und seiner eigenen Gattin, nach umstrittener Auffassung aber wahrscheinlich auch aus kurzer persönlicher Kenntnis schildern. 1798 erschien unter Constanzes Mitarbeit seine berühmte erste Mozartbiographie (eine frühere Fassung soll bereits im Vorjahr bei Kasper Widtmann in Prag erschienen sein, doch ist kein Exemplar bekannt). - Im Jahre 1799 wurde Niemetscheks Tochter Theresia geboren, 1802 sein Sohn Franz Xaver d. J. Im gleichen Jahr wurde er als Professor der Philosophie an die Prager Universität berufen. Theresia heiratete 1820 den Wiener Hausbesitzer und Geschäftsmann Bruno Neuling, Eigentümer des weitläufigen Hauses "Zum goldenen Hirschen" in der Wiener Leopoldstadt, wo 1834-86 zahlreiche Mitglieder der Musikerfamilie Strauß wohnen sollten. Nach dessen Tod 1829 heiratete Theresia schon 1830 in zweiter Ehe Franz Richter, einen engen Freund ihres Bruders. Niemetschek zog nach seiner Pensionierung zu seiner Tochter nach Wien, wo er im 83. Lebensjahr starb. - Der vorliegende Teilnachlaß umfaßt die Lebenszeit des Mozartbiographen und seiner beiden Kinder bis Anfang der 1860er Jahre. Die Dokumente vermitteln ein detailreiches Bild des privaten Lebens der bürgerlichen Bildungsschicht im Vormärz: Sie betreffen Familienfeiern, finanzielle Abrechnungen, lästige Vormundschaftspflichten, medizinische Ratschläge und Hausmittel, häufige Verwandtenbesuche in Sadská und Zebus sowie die romantischen und beruflichen Wirren Franz Niemetscheks des Jüngeren, aber auch Grüße von Carl Mozart und anderen befreundeten Musikern, Versuche zur Konversion evangelischer Freunde zum Katholizismus und die Umbrüche der Revolution 1848 in Wien und Böhmen, darunter Augenzeugenberichte aus Sadská und ein aus Angst vor der Zensur anonymisierter Brief eines nach Boston ausgewanderten revolutionären Verwandten. - Detaillierte Verlistung auf Anfrage.

        Kupferstich-Karte, von und nach Leopold Paur, "Stadt im Traume".

      - 1784, 64 x 93 Vergl. Österreichische Nationalbibliothek, 50 Zimelien der Kartensammlung, Nr. 44. Leopold Paur (geb. bei Altenburg bei Horn in Niederösterreich am 15.11.1735, gest. 17.09.1800 als Advokat in Wien) träumte schon als Jugendlicher in der Ebene des Horner Beckens eine Stadt zu bauen, in der die Utopie vom friedlichen Zusammenleben aller Menschen unterschiedlicher Rassen, Nationen und Religionen verwirklicht werden sollte. Im Jahre 1783 trat er mit seiner Idee an die Öffentlichkeit und versprach dem Architekten, der den besten Plan entwerfen werde, einen hohen Geldpreis. Am 25. Juli 1784 kündigte er das Erscheinen vorliegenden Plans an. Die Stadt sollte vorerst aus 856 Häusern bestehen, um Klassenunterschiede zu verhindern nach einheitlichem Vorbild, ebenso sollten alle Tempel gleich aussehen. Der geplante kosmopolitische Charakter der Stadt kommt auch durch die Namen der Plätze und Häuser zum Ausdruck: Forum Moscoviticum, Forum Indicum, Forum Sinicum, Tunis, Tripolis, Neapel, Peking, Berlin, Paris, u.v.m., der Plan ist eigentlich eine Karte der alten Welt. Natürlich wurde diese erschreckend neue Idee von seinen Zeitgenossen entsprechend abfällig beurteilt. Finanziert werden sollte die Stadt (Paur rechnete mit Anfangskosten von 86 Mio Gulden) durch ein noch zu entdeckendes Mittel gegen Syphilis, für das jeder Mensch auf der Erde 20 Kreuzer zahlt. Das Mittel wurde nie gefunden, so blieb die Stadt ein Traum. "Betrachtet man Leopold Paur nicht als Scharlatan, sondern sieht seinen Entwurf als Ausdruck philantopisch-toleranter und kosmopolitischer Gesinnung, so kann diese Utopie in folgende Zusammenhänge eingeordnet werden: Geometrie als wichtiger aus der Antike übernommener Bildungsinhalt, auf Antike und Renaissance zurückgehende Planungen idealer Städte (Palmanova oder Karlsruhe), Sozialutopien (Thomas Morus’ Utopia oder Francis Bacons Nova Atlantis) sowie Insel- bzw. Staatsromane als Kritik an der europäischen Zivilisation, aufklärerisch tolerante Haltungen aus der Freimauerei, wo auch Symbole, Zahlen, Geometrie eine wichtige Rolle spielen." (Öst. Nationalbibliothek). Der Wiener Kulturhistoriker Gustav Gugitz entdeckte im 20 Jhdt. den in Vergessenheit geratenen Plan und veröffentlichte im Bilderlexikon, Bd. Kulturgeschichte, Wien 1928, einen kurzen Artikel (mit Tafel). Ihm war nur 1 Exemplar des Stichs (in den Sammlungen der Stadt Wien, nach 1945 nicht mehr auffindbar) bekannt, heute kennen wir noch 4 weitere Exemplare (in der Albertina, in der niederösterreichischen Landesbibliothek, im Krahuletz-Museum in Eggenburg und seit einigen Jahren auch in der österreichischen Nationalbibliothek, angekauft im Rahmen der 17. Internationalen Antiquarsmesse Wien, 1998, Katalog p. 20 und Tafel 6). Die bekannten Exemplare unterscheiden sich alle von dem hier vorliegenden Exemplar in mehreren Details, was die Vermutung nahelegt, dass dies Paurs eigener Plan war, den er nach einer Veränderung der Kupferplatte drucken ließ. Neben einer Widmung für Kaiser Joseph II. ist es ein hebräisches Zitat aus dem Buch Esther, das besondere Beachtung verdient: „Und der König sprach: Was für Ehre und Würde haben wir dafür Mordechai zuteil werden lassen? Da sprachen die Knechte des Königs, die ihm dienten: Man hat ihm gar nichts gegeben! (Est. 6/3)". Paur sah sich wohl als Retter seines Volkes (der Menschheit), dem aber nicht gedankt wurde. Schönes Exemplar, kleine Randbeschädigungen, Faltung geglättet, Bildseitig sehr gut erhalten. Der seltene Kupferstich der Stadt im Traume in einer wohl einzigartigen Variation.

      bey Justus Friedrich Krieger, Giessen 1784 - Giessen, bey Justus Friedrich Krieger, 1784. 8vo. Tb., 3 Bll., 218 S. Neuer, hübscher Pappband mit Buntpapierbezug. (exzellenter Zustand, Papier sehr frisch). Erste Ausgabe, entstanden während Schlettweins Professur an der Universität Gießen. - Schlettwein (1731-1802) gilt als der bedeutendste deutsche Vertreter des sogenannten Physiokratismus, einer aus Frankreich herrührenden Wirtschaftsanschauung. Nach dem Studium an der Universität Jena wurde Schlettwein im Jahre 1763 an den Hof nach Karlsruhe berufen, wo er bis 1773 wirkte und seine Begeisterung für die physiokratische Lehre, insbesondere Mirabeaus und Du Pont de Nemours, mit dem Markgrafen Karl Friedrich von Baden-Durlach teilte. Er war bestrebt, Verbesserungen in der Landwirtschaft zu erzielen. Im Jahre 1777 wurde Schlettwein Dekan der ersten ökonomischen Fakultät an einer deutschen Universität, nämlich an der Universität Gießen. Er blieb in dieser Funktion bis 1785. Danach zog er sich auf Gut Beseritz in Mecklenburg-Strelitz zurück, wo er weiter in der Landwirtschaft experimentierte. Hier starb er, weitgehend vereinsamt.

        Neue Welt = Karte

      Norimberga 1784 - Carta georgafica de l mondo inserita nell'atlante degli eredi della tipografia Homann. Dal punto di vista cartografico la mappa presenta diverse innovazioni ed aggiornamenti, soprattutto nel Pacifico dove sono mostrate le scoperte di Cook del 1770. Incisione in rame, finemente colorata a mano, in ottimo stato di conservazione. This interesting world map presents some curious cartography, given the date of the map. The Great Lakes are shown as one huge body of water and California is strangely shaped with the Baja nearly appearing as an island. Australia includes several place names on the eastern coast, which resulted from Cook's discoveries in 1770. However, Van Diemens Land is still shown connected to the mainland. The tracks of several late 18th century expeditions are shown. Color key and German text panel below the hemispheres. Dimensioni 590 490mm

        Legitimidad, Nobleza e Hidalguía de la ascendencia de Joaquín de Terresuela y Adamez.

      1784 - "Nueva Granada. Interesting and Attractive. Illuminated Patent of Nobility". 1 coat o farms, 1 leaf, 121 folios. Red silk covers with there main softies. A RARE ILLUMINATED MANUSCRIPT FROM NUEVA GRANADA. PATENTS OF NOBILITY RELATED TO SOUTH AMERICAN FAMILIES ARE MUCH SOUGHT AFTER. This particular manuscript document attests the limpieza de Sangre of Joaquin de Zerresuela y Adamez, oficial mayor de la Contaduría de la Real Casa de la Moneda of Santa Fe de Bogotá. This document provides an interesting insight into life in Nueva Granada and Venezuela at the end of the XVIIIth Century. We learn that of Terresuela’s seven siblings, five brothers and two sisters, all born in Nueva Granada, three males had become members of the clergy and one sister had become a nun. One brother, Fray Manuel de la Asunción, was Prior of the convent of Tunja, another worked for Joaquin in the Contaduría. The remaining female, doña Josefa, married Fernando Nuñez who had come from Spain. A great variety of people give favourable testimony in Santa Fe on behalf of Joaquin and on behalf of his father in Tocuyo (Venezuela) where he had been a captain. The report also records the life of his ancestors who lived in XVIIth century in Maracaibo and Caracas who had intervened in the struggles against the Indians. The last part of the document contains the documents dealing with the Letters patent of Nobility of Fernando Nuñez. (G. 11096/LA16/80). vols. volumen(es)/volume(s) 121 pp páginas

        The Universal Conchologist, exhibiting the Figure of every known Shell, accurately drawn and painted after Nature: with a new systematic arrangement by the Author .../ Figures of non-descript Shells collected in the different Voyages to the South Seas since the year 1764 ... London, sold at his house no.

      16 Great Malborough Street, 1784. 2 volumes. Folio (405 x 405mm). With handcoloured engraved frontispiece of a shell within a gilt Greek key border, 3 engraved title pages, engraved dedication leaf, 2 explanatory tables and 1 leaf observation on the explanatory table, 27 pages text both in English and French, and 80 handcoloured engraved plates, and 1 unrecorded handcoloured engraved plate 'the Purse Mollusca'. Contemporary brown half morocco, richly gilt ornamented spines with gilt lettering, marbled sides. A fine copy of a very rare Large-Format 'deluxe' issue (see below) of one of the most attractive shell book ever published. The work was extended to four volumes but these two, devoted to shells of the South Seas, were published as a separate work. "From the introduction to 'The Universal Conchologist' we learn that it was 'to commence with the figures of shells (most of them rare and nondescript) which have been collected by several officers of the ships under the command of Captain Byron, Wallis, Cook, and others made to the South Seas' ... When the 'Resolution' and the 'Discovery' returned from the third and last voyage in 1780 (the dealer) Humphrey purchased some more shells, but the bulk of the conchological spoils were this time to Thomas Martyn, a knowledgeable dealer, versatile writer and gifted artist ... Unlike Humphrey and other dealers who snapped up the Cook shells Thomas Martyn had more than a pecuniary interest in his purchases, Martyn's reason for wanting to corner the market in South Seas shells was entirely praiseworthy; although he sold many of the shells he had bought, he illustrated the finest in 'The Universal Conchologist', his magnum opus (and) a work, which for, beauty, has seldom been surpassed in the history of conchological iconography" (Dance, Hist. of Shell Collecting)./Martyn purchased shells brought back from Cook's third voyage, although, as he wrote to Henry Seymer on 9 December 1780, 'I have purchased, amounting to 400 gns, more than 2 thirds of the whole brought home, Nevertheless I do not abound either in the variety of the new or many duplicates of the known ones that are valuable'. As a result, he modified his project and instead of presenting two shells on each plate, presented only one but depicted in two different views. Besides the specimens deriving from Cook's voyages, Martyn included specimens from the collections of the Duchess of Portland, the Countess of Bute, John Hunter, the Forsters, and others./The fine plates were drawn by Martyn and engraved and coloured by his 'Academy' of young men who he had trained as natural history artists. The plates, each showing a single species in two positions, were engraved in soft aquatint and printed lightly inked, so that when handcoloured they would resemble watercolours./Thomas Martyn (ca 1760-1816) was a native of Coventry, who lived in London at various addresses, most notably 10, Great Marlborough Street, Westminster, where he established his academy for the painting of Natural History. Besides the present work, his 'chef d'oeuvre', he published works on a dirigible balloon he designed, and various works of entomology, and colour theory. //The 'deluxe' large paper edition (405 x 405mm) is much bigger than the 4to edition (345 x 280mm), the plates are mounted on large sheets of blue mounts, the format of the plates is altered from portrait to landscape, in rectangular rather than square-ruled frames./The 'deluxe' issue also differs in letterpress and has 27 pages of text, the ordinary issue has 39 pages, divided into 'Introduction' and 'Preface'. /The following differences were first noticed by Dall: Plate 43 has two views of shell. There is only one view in the quarto. Plate 57 and 59; same remark. Plates 61 and 63, the figures are side by side. In the quarto (owing to the smaller page?) they are placed diagonally' (Dall, 'Supplementary notes' p. 186). I have noticed that the following plates also differ, with the ones in the present copy being placed side-by-side within larger frames: 2, 30, and 35. Plate 78 is altogether different, the same shell but differently portrayed.//Provenance: Lucy Portman the gift of James Buck Esq. 1801 on free endpaper and a manuscript note: Bought at Sotheby's sale april /29.//See William Healey Dall, 'Thomas Martyn and the Universal Conchologist', Proceedings of the United States National Museum, vol.

Illustrated with fold out plate (a little fragile in one fold) and "Table of Notes produces by a Single String of an Aeolian Lyre" Matthew Young (1750 - 1800) was educated at Trinity College, Dublin and he also taught there. He took orders in 1775 and was conferred the bishopric of Confert and Kilmacduagh by Lord Cornwallis in 1798. He was a musician, an enthusiastic botanist and somewhat of an artist. Young spent several years working on a commentary to Newton's "Principia"; in this volume he "endeavoured to vindicate the 47th prop. B.2, of Newton's Principia from the objections which have been made against it; as it appears to me to be the only true principle on which the phaenomena of the pulses of air can be explained. ....and have enquired with some minuteness into the nature of the vibrations of elastic fibres, a part of natural philosophy which seems to be more fertile in consequences than has hitherto been supposed, since the ingenious wirtings of Harley and Priestly on that subject. ..." -from the Advertisement.

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

      Genova 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. AA.VV La Liguria nelle carte e nelle vedute antiche, pp. 140/141 (la carta del Dury). Dimensioni 1840 1070mm

        [Gustav III] Regi.

      Gustavo. [=inledning]. (Rom), Congregationis de Propaganda Fide, 1784. Folio. (1),23,(1) blad. Med grav. vinjett på första bladet. Elegant om än lite nött rött halvsaffianbd med guldornerad rygg (Hedberg). Hörnen lite stötta. Inlagan ngt lager- och småfläckig. De sista bladen med lite gultonade fuktfläckar i texten. Med Fredrik Vult von Steijerns guldpressade pärmexlibris. Vinjetten föreställer en medalj över Gustav III och är graverad av Gismondius efter en förlaga av Dom. Cunego. Märklig hyllningsskrift till Gustav III överlämnad vid ett av de tre besöken på Propaganda Fide under hans italienska resa, den 4 april 1784. Den består av hyllningskväden till "greven av Haga" på en mängd språk utfört på Propagandans eget missionstryckeri och med utgångspunkt i en dikt av G. J. Adlerbeth. Här trängs texter på både svenska, etiopiska, armeniska, kurdiska, etruskiska, malabariska, persiska, kinesiska och tibetanska m.fl. utgörande en imponerande sammanställning av tryckeriets typförråd och boken kan på goda grunder räknas som ett stilprov. Adlerbeth själv skrev i resedagboken: "Således lärer knappt någon monark blifvit berömd på flera tungomål än Gustaf III, och [...] ingen författare öfversatt på flera än jag" och kungen "upptog med utmärkt nöje denna smickrande surpris, och tog vidare stilgjuteriet i ögonsikte".

        Parte Settentrionale dell'Istria / Parte Meridionale dell'Istria

      Venezia 1784 - Eccelsa incisione tratta dal volume dello Zatta intitolato ATLANTE novissimo illustrato 1775-85. Nel marg. sup. sinistro leggiamo la scritta "PARTE / SETTENTRIONALE / DELL’ISTRIA / DI / Giovanni Valle" e nel marg. inf. destro "PARTE / MERIDIONALE / DELL’ISTRIA / DI / Giovanni Valle" indicazione "Venezia 1784 / presso Antonio Zatta e Figli" oltre a scala "miglia 10 comuni d’Italia da 60 per Grado" nel marg. sup. sinistro della carta raffigurante la parte settentrionale. Come scrive Luciano Lago, tale carta deriva da un’incisione su lastra di rame e ci "troviamo di fronte a un modello nuovo, il quale, se offre scarsi risultati per quanto attiene allo scheletro cartografico, è incomparabilmente più ricco ed esatto nel quadro dell’insediamento umano". Esemplare in ottime condizioni. L. Lago, Theatrum Adriae, p. 303 n. 375. Map from "Atlante Novissimo" printed in Venice between 1776 and 1785. The map was issued in Zatta's Atlante Novissimo a monumental 4 volume work and one of the last great decorative atlases. Copperplate, original outline colour, in very good condition. Dimensioni 420 330mm
