Haydn, Joseph. (1732-1809) [Swieten, Gottfried van. (1733 - 1803)]
J. H. Henning, Amsterdam, 1785. Die Schöpfung. Grosses Oratorium, in Musik gesezt (sic). 8vo. 20 pp. Limp pale green paper wrappers. Staining to a handful of page edges, more significant stains on two leaves, else fine.  Stamp of "Haus Landfort" on title and Ex-Libris plate "Luyken Landfort" opposite on inner front cover, indecipherable tiny ownership signature penned upper right of title. Worldcat records no copies of the present edition, though we have located one at the Universiteits Bibliotheek Gent. The present copy evidently belonged to the Amsterdam physician and botanist Johann Albert Luyken (1785-1867), who lived from 1823 at the country estate and former manor house Landfort in Megchelen ( Municipality Oude IJsselstreek ), in the Dutch province of Gelderland, located on the German border and with a history dating back to the fifteenth century.  One of the highpoints of the Western musical canon, the Oratorio with a libretto by Gottfried von Swieten, was recognized from its earliest performances as a masterwork of the first order (see New Grove, 8: 346, 347, 358). First performed at the Palais Schwarzenburg in Vienna on April 29th and 30th, 1798, though not performed publicly until the following year, when it was heard at the Burghteater in Vienna on March 19th.  "There is hardly any doubt in the mind of the average music-lover that Haydn's Oratorio The Creation is, tutto sommato, his greatest single accomplishment, and certainly ranks as one of the greatest products of any eighteenth-century mind. It occupies a central position in choral literature and its composi … [Click Below for Full Description]

NEW HAMPSHIRE GENERAL COURT
Manuscript Document Signed by a Clerk, June 23, 1785, [Exeter], New Hampshire. Blindstamped "Archives de Chastellux" at top left. 4 pp., 8 x 13 1/2 in. New Hampshire Act providing "for the Regulation of navigation and commerce," featuring strict prohibitions against imports to or exports from New Hampshire in ships "being the property of any of the Subjects of the King of Great-Britain." It also establishes mechanisms for enforcement and penalties for disregarding the law. Provenance: François-Jean de Beauvoir, Marquis de Chastellux (1734-1788)Historical BackgroundThe Second Continental Congress adopted the Articles of Confederation in 1777, after sixteen months of debate. It then took until March 1781 to be ratified by the states. The system was inherently flawed; each state, no matter its size, had one vote in Congress; every act of Congress required the approval of nine states; there was no chief executive; Congress could not levy taxes (instead having to beg for requisitions from the states and loans from abroad); Congress lacked the authority to establish uniform regulations for foreign and domestic commerce. While the Treaty of Paris to end the Revolutionary War was pending in 1783, Great Britain closed its West Indian ports to most American goods. Once the war was officially over, British goods flooded American ports. The Confederation Congress had no power to respond. New York imposed a stiff duty on British West Indian imports, but voted against a 5 percent federal import tax. Massachusetts and Rhode Island passed their own protective tariffs. Inconsistent polices … [Click Below for Full Description]

Qianlong, Emperor of China
Beijing, Wu Ying Ting Press], 1778, 1785. Suite of 13 (out of 16) large copper-engraved plates (each measuring 505 x 864 mm approx.), laid down on slightly larger sheets with painted brown borders, with a printed poem in Chinese within each plate (based on Qianlong Emperor?s own personal commentary on the battles). Later morocco-backed and cornered marbled boards, cloth ties. Chinese issue, following the Paris printing of 1755-59. The ?Battle Copper Prints? are a series of prints from copper engravings dating from the second half of the 18th century. They were commissioned by the Qianlong Emperor of the Qing dynasty, who ruled from 1735 to 1796. They depict his 1772-76 military campaigns, led by General A-Kuei, against the Jinchuan tribes in China?s inner provinces and along the country?s frontiers in the ethnically Tibetan mountain regions of Szechuan. The master illustrations for the engravings were large paintings executed by European missionary artists employed at that time at the court in Beijing. They included the Jesuits Giuseppe Castiglione (1688-1766), Jean-Denis Attiret (1702-68), and Ignaz Sichelbarth (1708-80), as well as the Augustinian missionary Giovanni Damasceno Sallusti (d. 1781). The engravings of the first set of 16 paintings were not produced in China but in Paris, at that time home to the best European artisans working in this technique. The Emperor even decreed that the work must emulate the style of the Augsburg engraver Georg Philipp Rugendas (1666-1742), whose work he knew. Small-scale copies of the paintings by Castiglione and his Beijing colleagu … [Click Below for Full Description]

PAILLASSON, Charles
Alessandri et Scattaglia, Directeurs, [Padua, Italy?], 1785. A complete unbound set of 16 untrimmed plates engraved in copper by Pasquali, after Charles Paillasson's section on handwriting in Panckoucke's revised edition of the *Encyclopédie Méthodique*. This specific set of plates most likely was a set of proofs, with French captions, for the edition published in Padua by Alessandri and Scattaglia in 1785. The set consists of: one double-folded engraved title ("Pl. 1"); followed by a bifolium with two plates showing the position of the hand and writing posture ("Pl. 2" and "Pl. 3"); and 13 double-folded sheets of writing samples (nos. 4-16). A total of 16 plates on 15 untrimmed folio sheets measuring 12" x 18" when unfolded, and about 9" x 12" folded as issued (to be bound as a quarto volume), with a consecutive sequence of engraved secondary numbers (21-50) visible at the bottom left and right corners of each sheet. The sheets are loosely sewn together into two bundles. Plate no. 16 has a few intermittent ink smudges from the original impression, else near fine overall, with modest dust soiling mostly to the margins. Charles Paillasson's celebrated handwriting manual *L'Art d'Ecrire* was originally published in 1763 as part of Diderot and D'Alembert's *Encyclopédie*, with plates engraved in 1760. The manual was then republished in 1783 by Charles-Joseph Pancoucke in his revised and expanded edition, *Encyclopédie Méthodique* with partly modified plates. The Venetian engravers Innocente Alessandri and Pietro Scattaglia published a "pirate" edition of this work (1784-1812), … [Click Below for Full Description]

London: Charles Dilly, 1785. London:: Charles Dilly, 1785 VG, 1st ed, 2nd state, 1785.In modern calf, to style, over tree calf boards, tips repaired. Spine, gilt tooling, original gilt titles to red calf label. Internally, half title, [4], (v-vii), [1], [1], 2-254 pp, [1] errata/advert, some light spotting to eps & half title, very faint edge browning, short margin tears to p509-514, text block edges yellowed. (Folio, 124*210 mm), (ESTC T53594. Pottle 114).Boswell was and remains a divisive personality, even for modern readers who find the fluent, precise, demotic prose of the journals compelling: an unstable amalgam of vibrant self-advertising vanity and self-tortured insecurity; an able but reluctant Edinburgh lawyer who marred his chances for judicial promotion with over-zealous and occasionally frenetic defences of poor criminal clients, with whom he felt a particular sympathy; a loving but erratic husband; a lenient, beloved, but overburdened father; a kind and improvement-oriented lowland laird who longed for life in London; a sentimental Jacobite who developed an extraordinary veneration for George III.

The expedition lasted from 1768-1771 and resulted in the annexation of both Australia and New Zealand by Britain, won Cook fame, and led to his two subsequent voyages. Beddie 665; ESTC T165111

Contemporary calf, richly gold-tooled spine with brown title-label, marbled endpapers, red edges. [4], XLVIII, 432 pp. First edition of the French translation of a well-known mineralogical work by the Irish chemist, mineralogist and geologist Richard Kirwan (1733-1812). The original English was first published as Elements of mineralogy in 1784, and was "the first systematic mineralogy in English that classifies minerals by their chemical composition" (Schuh). The book opens with a preface, in which Kirwan discusses the position of mineralogy within science in Britain, comparing it to progresses made in France, Germany and Scandinavia. "He concludes that mineralogy must be considered a branch of chemistry. In this regard, Kirwan follows Cronstedt and uses the latter's basic classification, subjugating the mineral species into earths and stones, salts, inflammables and metals, based upon the species' chemistry" (Schuh).With a small bookplate of "Chapelle, capitaine d'artillerie" on paste-down, together with his inscription. Internally in very good condition, only a few tiny spots. Binding very slightly rubbed and slightly damaged at the foot of the spine. Overall in very good condition. Schuh 2678; Ward 1264.

[48], 479, [9] pp. Extremely rare unauthorized fourth edition of a manual on field fortification by the German officer Johann Gotlieb Tielke (1731-1787), first published in 1769. In his introduction, Tielke advises "young officers, who are desirous of studying" (English ed.) to read the present work till they thoroughly understand it, and to complement it with other military works "to acquire competent knowledge of the attack and defence of places" (English ed.). It is divided into three parts, the first dealing with marches and camps, answering questions such as: what are a field engineer's duties?, how to build roads and bridges, how to choose a proper place for encampment, etc. The second part treats field fortification, necessary materials and tools, etc., also with comments on commanding and distributing the workers. Lastly it deals with attacking and defending fortifications. As noted on the title-page, the text (and the engravings) give examples from "the latest war", meaning the Seven Years' War (1756-1763).With a manuscript owner's inscription on title-page.

Qianlong, Emperor of China.
[Beijing, Wu Ying Ting Press], 1778-1785. Suite of 13 (out of 16) large copper-engraved plates (each measuring 505 x 864 mm approx.), laid down on slightly larger sheets with painted brown borders, with a printed poem in Chinese within each plate (based on Qianlong Emperor’s own personal commentary on the battles). Later morocco-backed and cornered marbled boards, cloth ties. Chinese issue, following the Paris printing of 1755-59. The "Battle Copper Prints" are a series of prints from copper engravings dating from the second half of the 18th century. They were commissioned by the Qianlong Emperor of the Qing dynasty, who ruled from 1735 to 1796. They depict his 1772-76 military campaigns, led by General A-Kuei, against the Jinchuan tribes in China’s inner provinces and along the country’s frontiers in the ethnically Tibetan mountain regions of Szechuan. The master illustrations for the engravings were large paintings executed by European missionary artists employed at that time at the court in Beijing. They included the Jesuits Giuseppe Castiglione (1688-1766), Jean-Denis Attiret (1702-68), and Ignaz Sichelbarth (1708-80), as well as the Augustinian missionary Giovanni Damasceno Sallusti (d. 1781). The engravings of the first set of 16 paintings were not produced in China but in Paris, at that time home to the best European artisans working in this technique. The Emperor even decreed that the work must emulate the style of the Augsburg engraver Georg Philipp Rugendas (1666-1742), whose work he knew. Small-scale copies of the paintings by Castiglione and his Beijing colleagu … [Click Below for Full Description]

MESMER, BERGASSE
[Montauban], 1785. ______ Format : In-4. Collation : (2), 257 pp. Reliure : Basane, dos à nerfs orné. (Reliure de l'époque.). ____ Manuscrit reprenant le texte de la "Théorie du monde et des êtres organisés suivant les principes de M..." avec des parties inédites, que l'on ne retrouve pas dans l'édition imprimée : Un "Discours prononcé à l'ouverture de la Société de l'harmonie de Montauban par le docteur W. 1785." (p. 1 à 42) et en tête de la seconde partie, "Des propriétés de la matière", une introduction de (3) pp. A la fin on trouve 68 figures dessinées à la plume. Le texte de la "Théorie du monde et des êtres organisés suivant les principes de M..." a d'abord été diffusé sous forme manuscrite et distribué aux maitres de loges de la Société de l'Harmonie Universelle, avant d'être imprimé, en 1784, à un très petit nombre d'exemplaires. Cet ouvrage est aujourd'hui extrèmement rare car Mesmer n'en délivrait qu'un exemplaire par ville où son système était appliqué. "Conçue par Bergasse et Kornmann, la Société de l'Harmonie universelle, au moins initialement, était formée des élèves qui avaient acquis le droit, en adhérant pour 100 louis à la souscription en faveur de Mesmer, d'être instruits dans ses secrets. De tous les cercles composant le mouvement mesmériste, la Société apparaît comme le plus central et le plus proche du fondateur, suit en effet le modèle des loges maçonniques, elle en emprunte les symboles et elle en partage les horizons. Une part importante de ses membres est par ailleurs intégrée dans les diverses branches de la sociabilité maçonnique." (Armando, Belh … [Click Below for Full Description]
