A very fine copy of one of the most attractive early works on coleoptera, lacking the last 7 text volumes. First and only edition of this superbly illustrated work on exotic and European coleoptera. Carl Gustav Jablonsky was private secretary to the Queen of Prussia. After Jablonsky's untimely death Herbst edited the work from volume 2 on. A great number of the plates were drawn by Jablonsky.

      Dublin, 1785-1799.. 17.7 x 11cm. Original Hardcover. Binding nearly splt at spine. Needs repair. ALl works inside in excellent condition. Exlibris of Richard Buxton on pastedown.. PILON, FREDERICK (1750-1788), actor and dramatist, was born in Cork in 1750. After receiving a fairly good education in his native city, he was sent to Edinburgh University to study medicine, but he took to the stage instead. He first appeared at the Edinburgh Theatre as Oroonoko, but with small success, and consequently joined an inferior strolling company, with which he remained for some years. He finally drifted to London, where Griffin the bookseller employed him on the 'Morning Post.' After Griffin's death had deprived him of this position, he seems to have worked as an obscure literary hack until he began to write for the stage. He was soon employed with some regularity at Covent Garden Theatre. There, on 4 Nov. 1778, 'The Invasion, or a Trip to Brighthelmstone'-'a moderate farce,' according to Genest-was performed, with Lee Lewis in the chief part (Cameleon) on 4 Nov. 1778. It was repeated twenty-four times during the season, and was several times revived. 'The Liverpool Prize' followed at the same theatre on 22 Feb. 1779, with Quick in the chief part. 'Illumination, or the Glazier's Conspiracy,' a prelude, suggested by the illuminations on Admiral Keppel's acquittal, was acted on 12 April 1779 for Lee Lewis's benefit. 'The Device, or the Deaf Doctor,' when first produced on 27 Sept. 1779, met with great opposition, but, revived with alteration as 'The Deaf Lover,' on 2 Feb. 1780, it achieved some success; 'The Siege of Gibraltar,' a musical farce (25 April 1780), celebrated Rodney's victory; 'The Humours of an Election,' a farce (19 Oct. 1780), satirised electoral corruption; 'Thelyphthora, or more Wives than One,' a farce, satirising the work of the name by Martin Madan [q. v.], was produced on 8 March 1781, and was damned the second night; 'Aerostation, or the Templar's Stratagem' (29 Oct. 1784), dealt with the rage of the day for balloons; 'Barataria, or Sancho turned Governor' (29 March 1785), was adapted from D'Urfey. Meanwhile Pilon deserted Covent Garden for Drury Lane, where he produced, on 18 May 1782, 'The Fair American,' a comic opera, which was not very skilfully plagiarised from the 'Adventures of Five Hours.' Pilon's last piece, a comedy, 'He would be a Soldier,' after being rejected by Colman, was performed at Covent Garden on 18 Nov. 1786, and achieved considerable success. In 1787 Pilon married a Miss Drury of Kingston, Surrey; he died at Lambeth on 17 Jan. 1788. His pieces were clever, if of ephemeral interest. Besides the plays mentioned, all of which he published, Pilon issued 'The Drama,' an anonymous poem, 1775, and 'An Essay on the Character of Hamlet as performed by Mr. Henderson' (anonymous), 8vo, London, 1785 ? An edition of G. A. Stevens's 'Essay on Heads' appeared in 1785, with additions by Pilon. (DNB - Dictionary of National Biography - Article by David James O'Donoghue) __________________________________________ John O'Keeffe (June 24, 1747 - February 4, 1833) was an Irish actor and dramatist. He wrote a number of farces and amusing dramatic pieces, many of which had great success. Among these are Tony Lumpkin in Town (1778), Wild Oats (1791), Love in a Camp, and Omai (1785), an account of the voyages of the Tahitian explorer Omai. O'Keeffe was born in Dublin in 1747 to Roman Catholic parents and was educated by the Jesuits. After showing a talent for drawing he studied art at an Academy in Dublin, but grew increasingly more interested in the theatre. After a two-year trip to London, where he became an admirer of David Garrick, he settled on a career as an actor and playwright. O'Keeffe wrote his first play The She Gallant when he was twenty, and it was performed in Dublin at the Smock Alley Theatre. In 1774 O'Keeffe was married to Mary Heaphy. In 1777 O'Keefe moved to London. The following year he wrote Tony Lumpkin in Town a sequel to Oliver Goldsmith's She Stoops to Conquer and sent it to the manager of the Haymarket Theatre. The play was successfully produced, and O'Keefe regularly wrote for the Haymarket thereafter. Between 1782 and 1796 O'Keefe wrote around 28 plays and comic operas. The Poor Soldier (1783), a comic opera with words and lyrics by O'Keeffe and music by William Shield, was a musical farce about the lives of British soldiers returning home after the American War of Independence. O'Keeffe also wrote The Son-in-Law, Agreeable Surprise which includes the lyrical poem Amo, Amas, and Castle of Andalusia. O'Keefe had problems with his eyes ever since he had fallen into the River Liffey in his youth. From the mid-1770s O'Keefe increasingly lost his sight, and from 1781 his plays had to be dictated by him. In spite of this he was a prolific writer and was the most produced playwright in London in the last quarter of the 18th century. Some of his songs set to music by Arnold and Shield, such as I am a Friar of Orders Grey, and The Thorn, are still popular. In 1800 a benefit performance was staged for him at Covent Garden. In 1826 O'Keefe wrote his memoirs which covered his life experiences and various interactions with the leading artistic figures of his day. The memoirs were dictated to his daughter Adelaide O'Keefe (1776-1865) who oversaw their publication. The same year he was awarded a pension by George IV. He died in 1833 in Southampton and was buried there. In the 19th century the essayist William Hazlitt described O'Keeffe as the "English Moliere" observing "in light, careless laughter and pleasant exaggeration of the humorous, we have no equal to him". His Wild Oats has been revived in 1976, 1995 and 2012, by the Royal Shakespeare Company, the Royal National Theatre and the Bristol Old Vic respectively. (Wikipedia) ______________________________________________ August Friedrich Ferdinand von Kotzebue (3 May [O.S. 22 April] 1761 - 23 March [O.S. 11 March] 1819) was a German dramatist and writer who also worked as a consul in Russia and Germany. One of Kotzebue's books was burned during the Wartburg festival in 1817. He was murdered in 1819 by Karl Ludwig Sand, a militant member of the Burschenschaften. This murder gave Metternich the pretext to issue the Carlsbad Decrees of 1819, which dissolved the Burschenschaften, cracked down on the liberal press, and seriously restricted academic freedom in the states of the German Confederation.

        Pleuronectes Limandoides

      Ichthyologie. Marcus Elieser Bloch., 1785-97. La Plie rude Plate CLXXXVI. Copper engraving. Original colour. In fine condition. Size: 36 x 20 cm. (14 x 8 inches) Marcus Éliéser Bloch was born in 1723 in Anspach. He spent the earlier part of his career as a physician, studying intestinal worms. It was not until the age of 57, that Bloch turned to the study of fish, and set himself the task of providing full descriptions and illustrations of the species known to him. His first work focused on German fish and was entirely original, based on his own observations, reliable and thorough. His study of foreign fishes, however, was based on the works of others. Thus it was subject to many of the misconceptions that filtered through the great body of travel literature during the 18th century - presenting a range of illustrations with exacting accuracy on one hand or enticing imagination on the other. Bloch worked with a number of artists. Bloch's work is much sought after, and has endured to the extent that there are several editions of his work still in print today. Engraved by SCHMIDT, Ludewig.

The rare sale catalogue of the great library of books and early manuscripts, many illuminated, founded by Henri François d'Aguesseau (1668-1751), Chancellor of France, a man of great learning. According to the preface of the catalogue he had acquired the collection of the poet Florent Chrestien (1541-1596), and his son Claude (b. 1567). His library passed to his second son, Jean Baptiste Paulin d'Aguesseau, Marquis de Mannoevre (1701-84) who considerably enlarged it. Between the two generations they created a most remarkable collection. The father and son employed fifteen versions of their coat-of-arms on their bindings. The sale included 5583 lots and was sold over a 57 day period. This copy has been very largely priced in a contemporary hand. The annotator has also provided a series of most interesting notes on buyers, bibliographical details, notes on condition, etc. Payne and the Marquis de Méjanes were major buyers.

        Gadus Merluccius

      Ichthyologie. Marcus Elieser Bloch., 1785-97. The Hake. Plate CLXIV. Copper engraving. Original colour. In fine condition. Size: 37 x 19 cm. (14½ x 7½ inches). Marcus Éliéser Bloch was born in 1723 in Anspach. He spent the earlier part of his career as a physician, studying intestinal worms. It was not until the age of 57, that Bloch turned to the study of fish, and set himself the task of providing full descriptions and illustrations of the species known to him. His first work focused on German fish and was entirely original, based on his own observations, reliable and thorough. His study of foreign fishes, however, was based on the works of others. Thus it was subject to many of the misconceptions that filtered through the great body of travel literature during the 18th century - presenting a range of illustrations with exacting accuracy on one hand or enticing imagination on the other. Bloch worked with a number of artists. Bloch's work is much sought after, and has endured to the extent that there are several editions of his work still in print today. Engraved by SCHMIDT, Ludewig.

        R.P. Natalis Alexandri ... Historia ecclesiastica Veteris Novique Testamenti ab orbe condito ad annum post Christum natum millesimum sexcentesimum: et in loca ejusdem insignia dissertationes historicae, chronologicae, cr

      Bingii ad Rhenum: G. C. Voigt, 1785-1791.. Sm. 4to.(25 cm). Full mottle calf, raised bands, gilt decorated compartments, morocco labels, marbled endpapers, all edges red. First quarto edition. Editio omnium novissima, notis et animadversionibus, quoad historiam et dissertationem [sic] Novi Testamenti, aucta ad castigationem et illustrationem opinionum quorumdam [sic] auctoris, opera et studio Constantini Roncaglia .. Quibus accedunt, praeter animadversiones a P. Joanne Dominico Mansi .. in 2. Lucensi editione inserta [sic], aliae insuper ejusdem auctoris noviter elucubratae. Illus. Brunet I, 169. Noel Alexandre, or Alexander Natalis (1639-1724), was a French historian and theologian, of the Order of St. Dominic who studied philosophy and theology in the convent of Saint Jacques, Paris, where he taught for twelve years, obtained the licentiate from the Sorbonne, and in 1675, the doctorate, and was urged to write a complete history of the church, the first volume appearing in 1677. ?His directness and conciseness, his critical acumen, and his manner of viewing history and dividing it into special studies (then quite original, although now common enough) won for him the approbation of the learned. The first volumes of the history brought him letters of commendation and praise from Pope Innocent XI and many cardinals, but later volumes gave offense at Rome because of the author's Gallicism, and Innocent XI finally forbade the faithful to read ..it, " Cath.Ency. Alexandre corrected the work in the third edition. Constantino Roncaglia brought out a sixth edition, unaltered, but with the addition of paragraphs and dissertations correcting the most offensive statements. The work was thus removed from the Index by Pope Benedict XIII. The edition offered here is the best and most complete, edited by Giovan Domenico Mansi who added many explanatory notes. An anonymous writer in two supplementary volumes (also included here) carried the history into the eighteenth century, and added various dissertations from other historians. The work thus completed appeared at Venice in 1778, in eleven folio volumes, and at Bingen, 1785-91, in twenty volumes. Spines and boards rubbed and scuffed, worn at extremities, heads and heels of a few volumes chipped, calf occasionally darkened or brittle mainly on spines, library call numbers to lower compartments, seminary book plate to front pastedowns, occasional bookseller's ticket, bindings tight, some scattered foxing otherwise leaves clean and unmarked. A valuable set.

        LE FABBRICHE E I DISEGNI DI ANDREA PALLADIO RACCOLTI ED ILLUSTRATI DA OTTAVIO BERTOTTI SCAMOZZI.. Opera divisa in quattro tomi, con tavole in rame rappresentanti le piante, i prospetti, e gli spaccati. Unito: LE TERME DEI ROMANI.

      per Giovanni Rossi / per Vincenzo Modena 1785-1786 In folio (mm. 445x320), 4 voll., mz. pelle coeva con ang. (abras. ai piatti di 1 vol.), dorso a cordoni (picc. manc.) con fregi e tit. oro su due tasselli, pp. 80 + 52 tavv. (+ 1 non in elenco, solo descritta a p. 23); pp. 56 + 51 tavv.; pp. 50 + 52 tavv.; pp. 64 + 54 tavv. L'opera e' ornata da un bel ritratto del Palladio racchiuso in cornice, disegnato da David Rossi e inc. in rame dal Ravenet e da una deliziosa vignetta ai frontispizi, inc. in rame. Le bellissime tavv. - in totale 209 + 1 (di cui numerose a doppia pag.) - inc. in rame con estrema precisione e nitidezza, raffigurano prospetti, piante e spaccati delle "fabbriche e disegni" di Palladio. "Seconda edizione". Cfr. Cicognara,598 e Fowler Collection,231 per la I ediz. del 1776-83. - Brunet,IV,321 - Graesse,V,108. Lo studio di Ottavio Bertotti Scamozzi è di fondamentale importanza nella storia della fortuna critica di Palladio. Unito (Vol. V): "Le terme dei Romani disegnate da Andrea Palladio" e ripubblicate con la giunta di alcune osservazioni da Ottavio Bertotti Scamozzi, giusta l?esemplare del Lord Co. di Burlingthon impresso in Londra l?anno 1732, Vicenza, per Francesco Modena, 1585. In folio gr. (mm. 470x350), mz. pelle coeva con ang., dorso a cordoni (lievi abras.) con fregi e tit. oro su tassello, pp. 32, con bella antiporta e una pregevole grande vignetta alle armi del Cavalier Girolamo Ascanio Giustiniani, cui è dedicata l?opera, inc. in rame. Il vol. è illustrato da 25 tavv. f.t., più volte ripieg. (8 a p. pag.) e inc. in rame da Gaetano Testolini: realizzate da Carlo Barrera, sono copie di quelle in bistro apparse nella prima edizione del 1730 (e non 1732); è pure copia del Testolini l?antiporta con il busto di Palladio racchiuso in elaborata cornice architettonica che figurava al frontespizio dell?ediz. originale. "Prima edizione". Cfr. Fowler Collection,234: "First printing of Scamozzi?s edition of ?Le terme dei Romani?" based on Lord Burlington?s edition of 1730.. The plan of the Baths of Agrippa, missing from the Burlington collection, was obtained by Scamozzi from Temanza and included in this work? - Berlin Katalog,I,1877 - Cicognara,599. L?opera, completa del V volume dedicato alle terme romane, è piuttosto rara; infatti quest?ultimo tomo fu pubblicato in forma separata e difficilmente si trova unito ai primi quattro. Le numerose edizioni di quest?opera testimoniano del profondo interesse per Palladio nel periodo neoclassico. Solo V vol. con qualche fiorit. nel t. e uniformi arross. alle tavv. altrimenti fresco e bell?esemplare.
