First Edition, early issue, published in the same year as the first edition and pre-dating the first performance of the opera in May of 1786. Scarce. Cordier: Bibliographie des oeuvres de Beaumarchais no. 128. Le Nozze di Figaro, an opera buffa in four acts to a libretto by Lorenzo Da Ponte after Beaumarchais?' play La folle journée, ou Le mariage de Figaro, was first performed in Vienna at the Burgtheater on May 1, 1786. Beaumarchais was harp teacher to the daughters of Louis XV. "[He] successfully included Baudron's storm music as a prelude to Act 4 of Le barbier, and, alongside continued use of vaudeville tunes in Le mariage de Figaro... stretched Comédie Française conventions by introducing a whole scene of dance, song and mime for the 'coronation' of Suzanne with the bride's head-dress... As if to vindicate Beaumarchais's musical instinct, Le barbier de Séville attracted settings by Benda, Paisiello, Isouard and Rossini, while the Mozart-Da Ponte collaboration in Le nozze di Figaro proved just how much of the original play was translatable into music." Rudolph Angermüller in Grove Music Online.

        The Course of Delaware River from Philadelphia to Chester with the Several Forts and Stackadoes raised by the Americans and the Attacks made By His Majesty';s Land and Sea Forces

      London: printed for Wm. Faden, 1785. Copper-engraved map. Provenance: Martin P. Snyder. Restoration to center fold. The Snyder copy of the third and final state of one of the most important maps of the Revolutionary War, depicting the dramatic military events that transpired on the Delaware River, just below Philadelphia This large scale and finely engraved masterpiece of military cartography embraces the Delaware River estuary from Philadelphia down to the town of Chester. In great detail, the map showcases the momentous events of November, 1777 when a British assault of combined naval and army forces struggled to wrestle control of the river from the Continental forces. In September, 1777 the British retook Philadelphia, the Continental capital and the largest city in the American colonies. However, they knew that their hold on the city would prove fleeting unless they managed to secure its access to the sea, which was blocked by a formidable American cordon militaire. The Americans could cover the entire width of the Delaware River with artillery, as they controlled Fort Mercer at Red Bank on the New Jersey shore, and the adjacent Fort Mifflin, on Mud Island in the middle of the river. Menacingly they also constructed stockadoes, or chevaux de frise, across the largest channel of the river, both under the American artillery positions at the aforementioned forts and at Billingsport, New Jersey. The placements were essentially caissons constructed in the river that were intended to ensnare and slow British ships, making them more vulnerable to attack. Their construction is depicted in diagrams on the lower-right of the map. The British mounted their assault in prongs from the south, one force under Lord Cornwallis captured Billingsport, before moving on foot to besiege Fort Mercer. The large inset in the upper-left shows the fierce canonade that ensued, that eventually forced the Americans to surrender Fort Mifflin on November 16th. As depicted on the map, the Continental fleet, the contents of which are listed at the lower centre of the map, mounted a brave resistance to the superior British force, but were overcome after intense ship to ship combat. After taking Fort Mercer, Lord Cornwallis' force continued on to Gloucester, New Jersey, where the Americans had torched the remainder of their fleet to prevent it from falling into British hands. The conclusion to the dramatic action portrayed on this map marked the high point of the British Philadelphia Campaign, as the city was now safely in their grasp. However, their victory was wasted. The British dithered in complacency, while the American forces under George Washington spent the following winter in legendary deprivation at Valley Forge. Washington's trial in the wilderness galvanized the morale of his men to mount a spirited campaign in New York the next year, the success of which eventually forced the British to abandon Philadelphia in an attempt to shore up their fortunes further north.

        Élémens de minéralogie

      Cuchet, Paris 1785 - In-8 (199 x 121 mm), 2 ff. n. ch., XLVIII pp., 432 pp. Basane fauve marbrée, dos à nerfs orné, pièce de titre en maroquin rouge, roulette à froid sur les coupes, épidermures sur un plat, deux coupes et deux coins (reliure de l'époque). Édition originale de la traduction française. Les Éléments de minéralogie parurent la première fois en anglais en 1784. Ils furent traduits en français par le médecin Jacques Gibelin (Aix, 1744-1828) qui fut reçu docteur à l'université d'Aix à l'âge de 20 ans. Il se rendit ensuite à Paris où il étudia trois années les sciences naturelles, puis séjourna plusieurs années en Angleterre pour s'instruire des plus grands médecins anglais. De retour à Paris, il publia des traductions de différents ouvrages de médecine et de sciences d'auteurs anglais. Il se retira à Aix comme conservateur de la bibliothèque publique et secrétaire perpétuel de la Société académique de cette ville. Le premier travail systématique de minéralogie en anglais. Richard Kirwan (Ballymoe, 1733-Dublin, 1812) fut un certain temps établi à Londres où il publia de nombreuses contributions pour la Royal Society qui lui décerna la médaille Copley en 1782. En 1784 il fit paraître ses Elements of Mineralogy qui constituèrent le premier travail systématique sur le sujet publié en anglais. Ils eurent un très grand succès et constituent aujourd'hui un moment de référence dans l'histoire de la minéralogie. En effet l'ouvrage dresse un tableau des minéraux connus alors, indique le système de classification et renseigne sur leur composition. Kirwan retourna en Irlande en 1787 et s'installa à Dublin où il devint président de la toute jeune Académie Royale d'Irlande. Bon exemplaire en reliure du temps.

        Plano geometrico de la Imperial Noble y Leal Ciudad de Mexico, teniendo por extreme la zanxa y garitas del resguardo de la Real Aduana

      1785 - A magnificent and early wall map of Mexico City. 1785. Madrid. Don Tomas Lopez, Geógrafo de los Dominios de S.M. 860 mm x 1100 mm. Engraved map, printed on four sheets, joined, numbered key to principal buildings in upper left corner below a title cartouche decorated with cornucopia with ornate moldings, with the coat of arms of the Count of Tepa below. Arguably amongst the most magnificent maps of Mexico City, containing cartographical information of privileged access, and to our knowledge, the first Spanish printed map of such dimensions of the Viceroyalty´s Capital City. Tomas Lopez de Vargas Machuca (1731-1802) was a Spanish publisher and the leading cartographer of the age. He studied with Jean-Baptiste Bouguignon d'Anville in Paris, before returning to his native Madrid in 1760, when he established the only independent cartographic publishing house in Spain in 1760. He began making maps for the Bourbon kings and became Royal Geographer to King Carlos III in 1780. He was even authorised to create a geographic agency for the secretary of state in 1795. Lopez´ map follows the one made by Ignacio de Castera Obiedo y Peralta (Mexico 1750 – 1811), a Mexican architect and cartographer. Castera gained the favour of Archibishop Nuñez Haro de Peralta and Viceroy Guemes Pacheco, which allowed him to participate in the construction of important buildings in the City of Mexico. Lopez had already published a 1758 map of Mexico City, a plain orthogonal plan of the type created by military engineers. His work was typical of late eighteenth century Spanish attempts to assert control of their empire through cartography. Castera´s maps, however, appear to have never been published, until this edition, by Lopez. Cartographically, it resembles greatly the “Plano Ignografico de la Nobilisima Ciudad de Mexico, hecho en el año 1776 por D. Ignacio Castera, Mro. De Arquitectura y Agrimensor de tierras, aguas y minas por S. M. y aumentado en el de 1778”, thus, we are made aware of at least two maps made within 1776 and 1778 (El criollo en su reflejo, Fomento Cultura Grupo Salinas, pp. 46). Castera´s map reflects the political, social and urban modifications suffered by the city of Mexico as a result of the reforms carried out by the Borbon kings in the second half of the 18th century. In this sense, it is the first printed map to show “modern” Mexico. Dennis Reinhartz argued that Spain’s reluctance at the beginning of the eighteenth century to make public claims on their American territories via maps and sparse settlements “encouraged Spain’s European rivals, France and Britain, to engage in real and cartographic ‘filibustering’ campaigns in the region”. Although Castera and Lopes’ map supposedly presents a detached view, it is still fraught with ideology. Mexico City was a vital part of New Spain, the capital of the viceroyalty, the seat of the bishopric and a trading centre with links to both Asia and Europe. Carlos III, king at the time this map was made, was determined that the reforms he initiated in Spain should be copied throughout the Spanish empire, and that Spanish colonial possessions should reflect European cultural values. Protestant critics dismissed Spain's empire as an “intellectual backwater”. This plan counters these claims by displaying it in the style of a European city view - well-planned, geometric, modern - and addresses contemporary thought which equated the physical order of a state with its political efficacy. It reflects the political, social and urban modifications resulting from the reforms carried out by the Bourbon kings in the second half of the eighteenth century. In this sense, it is the first printed map to show “modern” Mexico. To the lower right of the plan is a key listing districts, monastic houses, convents, non-religious buildings, public buildings, and canals. The plan clearly shows the Alameda Park, the Zócalo (Plaza Mayor), and the Cathedral of the Assumption of Mary. To the lower left is a [Attributes: First Edition]

        A Voyage to the Pacific Ocean ... Performed under the direction of Captains Cook, Clerke, and Gore, in His Majesty's Ships the Resolution and Discovery; in the years 1776-1779 and 1780

      London: H. Hughes, for G. Nicol and T. Cadell, 1785. 4 volumes. (Text: 3 vols., quarto [11 1/4 x 9 inches]; Atlas vol. of plates: 1 vol., large folio [21 ½ x 16 ¾ inches]).Text: Engraved medallion portrait vignettes by James Hogg on titles, 1 folding letterpress table. Atlas vol.: 87 engraved plates, plans and maps (one double-page, one folding), the 24 plates normally found bound in the text vol. here bound in the atlas unfolded and untrimmed. Text: contemporary tree calf, red morocco spine labels (neat repairs to head and foot of spines). Atlas: contemporary half calf and marbled-paper boards, red morocco spine labels. (Some wear to head and tail of spine) A fine unsophisticated set of the third edition of the third voyage, with the plates in their most desirable form: all the plates usually found in the text volumes are here bound, unfolded and uncut, in the atlas volume. "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 typography of the second and third editions of the text of the third voyage is generally considered superior to the first. For the second and subsequent editions, Hughes took over the printing from Strahan and re-set the text. Contemporary support for this view is reported by Forbes who quotes an inscription in a set presented by Mrs. Cook to her doctor, Dr. Elliotson, which notes "the letter press of the second edition being much superior to the first both in paper & letter press." Copies of the Third Voyage with the plates from the text uncut, unfolded and bound into the atlas are rare. Such sets are more desirable, as the plates may be enjoyed more fully without the usual folds and losses from irregular trimming by the binder.

        The United States of North America with the British & Spanish Territories according to the Treaty of 1784

      [London]: Wm. Faden, 1785. Copper-engraved map, with full original colour, trimmed within platemark top margin, trimmed to platemark bottom margin, neatlines intact, mounted on silk mending a split at center fold, large lateral margins. The extremely rare fourth issue of one of the most important early maps of the United States Faden's sequence of maps of the United States represents one of the most important cartographic depictions of the newly independent republic. The present map is the fourth issue of the fourteen total appellations (including the parent plan and thirteen subsequent issues), and is one of the extremely rare first five appellations of this series which almost never appear on the market. The Faden sequence comprises a critical and fascinating series of historical documents regarding the political development of the United States, especially since each issue captures a distinct stage in America's process of transformative change. The present map depicts the United States with its new boundaries as determined at the end of the Revolutionary War, as ratified at the Treaty of Paris, signed on September 3rd, 1783. (The Treaty came into effect in April of 1784). The map is beautifully coloured to identify American, British, Spanish territories, and the coasts of Newfoundland, rich in cod then, to which the French were granted fishing rights. The Treaty of Paris settlement established the new United States from the Atlantic to the Mississippi. Unfortunately, the source of the Mississippi had not been determined, though the map provides two possible "Mississippi River by Conjecture" sites. Consequently, no definitive northwestern border could be determined. More relevantly, we note open western borders for every state from Georgia to Pennsylvania, except South Carolina. The boundaries between New York, the Iroquois Nation and Pennsylvania are non-existent, but Vermont, though not yet a ratified state, has been inserted between New York and New Hampshire, the beginning of a settlement of an old quarrel. Maine is part of Massachusetts and divided between the "Main" and "Sagahadok" regions. The land west of the Appalachians but east of the Mississippi, while theoretically apportioned to the United States, is shown to be in fact in the possession of the various native tribes. British hopes for this region lay very much with them. By the Treaty of Paris, Spain, who had allied themselves with France, took back possession of Florida from Britain, and the vast Louisiana Territory from France. England and Spain were now the predominant North American powers with the fledgling United States relatively minor. The composition is completed by an extremely fine title cartouche, which depicts a scene in which slaves prepare barrels, bundles and bales for export. This cartouche appeared on several incarnations of this map, and it points to a couple of interesting aspects of the British perception of America: one, America's continuance of slavery, declarations of rights and freedom notwithstanding, and two, the benefits of commerce to both nations. In fact, trade between the two countries resumed soon after the war, despite French protestations.

Cordier: Bibliographie des oeuvres de Beaumarchais no. 128. Le Nozze di Figaro, an opera buffa in four acts to a libretto by Lorenzo Da Ponte after BeaumarchaisÂ’ play La folle journée, ou Le mariage de Figaro, was first performed in Vienna at the Burgtheater on May 1, 1786. Beaumarchais was harp teacher to the daughters of Louis XV. "[He] successfully included Baudron's storm music as a prelude to Act 4 of Le barbier, and, alongside continued use of vaudeville tunes in Le mariage de Figaro... stretched Comédie Française conventions by introducing a whole scene of dance, song and mime for the 'coronation' of Suzanne with the bride's head-dress... As if to vindicate Beaumarchais's musical instinct, Le barbier de Séville attracted settings by Benda, Paisiello, Isouard and Rossini, while the Mozart-Da Ponte collaboration in Le nozze di Figaro proved just how much of the original play was translatable into music." Rudolph Angermüller in Grove Music Online.

        Der deutsche Zuschauer. Oder Archiv der denkwürdigsten Eräugnisse [sic], welche auf die Glückseligkeit oder das Elend des menschlichen Geschlechts und der bürgerlichen Geselschaft [ab Band V.: \"Gesellschaft\"] einige Beziehung haben. 9 Bände (gebunden in 5) bzw. 25 Hefte (komplett).

      Auf Kosten der Herausgeber [= Zürich], 1785-1789. 20 x 12 cm. Je Band ca. 380 Seiten. Gebunden in 5 rot eingefärbten Halblederbänden der Zeit (Rücken berieben und beschabt). - Die typographischen Originalumschläge sind jeweils hinten beigebunden). *Originalausgabe. Vollständiges Periodikum zum politischen Tagesgeschehen in Deutschland am Vorabend der Französischen Revolution. Eine Fortsetzung erschien 1789-1791 in 7 Bänden unter dem Titel \"Der neue deutsche Zuschauer\". - Eine recht seltene politische Zeitschrift, welche die aktuellen Strömungen und politischen Ereignisse des jeweiligen Jahres aufgriff. Es erschienen 6 Hefte pro Jahr (bzw. 3 Hefte pro Band), der neunte Band enthält nurmehr das letzte (25.) Heft sowie ein Generalregister über alle 25 Lieferungen. - Enthält kritische und provokante Beiträge zu aktuellen politischen und gesellschaftlichen Themen, darunter viele zu Kur-Mainz, einige über Freimaurer und Illuminaten sowie gegen herrschendes Unrecht, Willkür, Despotismus und sonstige Mißstände, z.B.: \"Speierische Schulen und Zuchthaus\" - \"Hofrath von Reider in Mainz\" - \"Widmann und sein Baurenschinder\" - \"Thierisch-dumme Kapuzinaden\" - \"Stimme des Volkes an seinen König\" - \"Mainzer Armenanstalten\" - \"Illuminaten in Bayern\" - \"Intoleranz in Mainz\" - \"Freimaurer in Bayern\" - \"Über Jesuitenregierung\" u.v.a. - Der Herausgeber Winkopp (1759-1813) war geboren in Leipzig und jung in den Benediktinerorden eingetreten. Nachdem er ein zweites Mal aus dem Kloster Petersberg bei Erfurt entlaufen war, widmete er sich der Schriftstellerei und verfaßte eine größere Zahl von Schauerromanen. Bekannter wurde er dann durch die Gründung und Herausgabe der Zeitschrift: \"Der deutsche Zuschauer\", welche in Zürich erschien. Die recht kritischen und provokanten Aufsätze insbesondere zu Kurmainz, erregten heftigen Anstoß am Pfälzischen und Mainzer Hof. Wegen eines anonymen, den Kurfürsten von Mainz kränkenden Aufsatzes (von Joh. v. Benzel) wurde Winkopp am 8. März 1786 in Basel aufgegriffen, nach Mainz verschleppt und dort bis Ende September in Haft behalten. Er blieb danach in Mainz, verheiratete sich dort und arrangierte sich schließlich mit der kurmainzischen Regierung, die ihn zum Hofkammerassessor (1791) machte. - Interessant ist hier auch schon der Titel, der programmatisch bereits von einer \"Bürgerlichen Gesellschaft\" spricht in einer absolutistisch geprägten Zeit, in der wir heute historisch erst einzelne Erscheinungen als Anfänge der Herausbildung zu einer bürgerlichen Gesellschaft bewerten. - Sehr selten, auch in den großen Bibliotheken meist nur im Reprint (als Microfiche) vorhanden. - Einbände etwas berieben, Text durchgehend sauber und gut erhalten.

The first edition of this work was published at Naples in 1766-67, in both English and French, under the title "Antiquites etrusques, grecques et romaines, tirees du cabinet du chevalier William Hamilton," as a large-size four-volume folio edition limited to only 500 copies. It documents William Hamilton's first collection of Greek vases, largely acquired from the Porcarini family, which he sold to the British Museum in 1772. Hamilton began collecting vases in 1764, when he was appointed envoy to Naples. Hancarville, a self- made antiquarian who had worked with Winkelmann, and who was familiar with local society, acted as Hamilton's agent and wrote the text describing the collection. Hamilton valued his vases as models for modern artists and designers; and the catalog of his collection was influential in the development of neo-classical designs for pottery and porcelain, especially Wedgwood.

        Manuscript Letter - East India Company Army Ensign Corresponds to Lord Provost of Edinburgh

      India, 1785. Cawnpore [Kanpur], 7 February 1785. Manuscript signed letter by East India Company Army ensign Robert Spottiswood, written to James Hunter Blair, Lord Provost of Edinburgh, and reporting on the status of peace and military presence in India, and also describing a nautical disaster near Ceylon. 8vo. Double leaf laid watermarked paper measuring approximately 19 x 22,5 cm, with integral address, and lovely red wax seal being a monogram of the writer's initial R.S., Very good condition. The unusually exquisite wax seal, for a young mariner, and the recipient of his correspondent, suggest that the writer was connected to an affluent Scottish family. Further research may find him to be a descendant of Sir Robert Spottiswood, Lord Newabbey (1596-1646), a Scottish lawyer whose father was John Spottiswoode (1565-1639), Archbishop of St Andrews, with lineage leading to Robert De Spottiswoode, born in the thirteenth century during the reign of Alexander III. Spottiswood is writing to James Hunter Blair (1741-1787) a Scottish banker, landowner and politician, who evidently provided him with a glowing reference with which to gain favourable entrance in the army of the East India Company. At the time of this correspondence, Sir Blair was Lord Provost of Edinburgh, holding this post from 1784 to 1786. Previously he was Member of Parliament for Edinburgh, from 1780 to 1784. The letter also mentions Lieutenant General Giles Stibbert, Commander-in-Chief, India, as the writer made contact with his assistant. Spottiswood provides a succinct but scarce eyewitness account of the burning of the ship "Duke of Kingston" at sea, near Ceylon, in 1783. [The Duke of Kingston, the second ship named as such, was built at the Blackwall Yard by a ship builder named Perry, and was launched in 1772. Its maiden voyage was in 1772, sailing to China under Captain Snow. The second voyage was made in 1776 under Captain Robert Maw, to Madras and Bengal. The third voyage departed Portsmouth in November 1778, also to Madras and Bengal, as well as Rio de Janeiro, under Captain Justinian Nutt, returning in 1781. Her fourth and final voyage, in 1783, also headed to Madras and Bengal under Captain Justinian Nutt, leaving Portsmouth on 11 March 1783. The vessel was burnt off Ceylon on 20 August 1783. All that remains is a receipt book, an imprest book.] . Very Good.
