        Louis XVII. lebt!! : Memoiren Carl Louis, Herzog's der Normandie, legitimen Königs von Frankreich. Von seinem Eintritt in den Tempel 1792, bis auf die neueste Zeit. Mit einer Vorrede des Prinzen, authentischen Briefen und historischen Erläuterungen. Nach dem in London als Manuscript gedruckten Originale.

      8 (18x11), VIII, 274 S., OKart (Originale VerlagsBroschur mit beidseitigem Schmuckrahmen), etwas angestaubt, unbeschnitten, gutes sauberes Exemplar, [ADB 23 319 ff].-- sehr seltene Originalausgabe!! -- Nahezu 100 Männer gabe sich im 19. Jahrhundert - oft Jahrzehnte nach dessen Tod - als Ludwig XVII. aus und damit als legitime Prätendenten auf den Thron Frankreichs keiner der angeblichen Dauphins wurde jedoch von der Familie oder der Öffentlichkeit anerkannt.- Als besonders dickköpfiger Hochstapler erwies sich aber der deutsche Uhrmacher Karl Wilhelm Naundorff (1785-1845). Bereits 1827 nach Entlassung aus dreijähriger Haft wegen Betrug und Fälschung, gab er sich als Herzog der Normandie aus, in den 1830er Jahren gab es durchaus Kräfte, die seinen Bezeugungen glauben schenkten. Obwohl er kaum französisch sprach, konnte Naundoff bei Befragungen mit guten Kenntnissen über das Leben bei Hofe glänzen (Ähnlich der als vermeintliche russische Prinzessin Anastasia bekannt gewordenen Anna Anderson im 20. Jahrhundert). Seine Ansprüche sollte u.a. vorliegende Publikation unterstützen.- Er war selbst so überzeugend, dass er die Prinzessin Marie Therese Charlotte sogar auf Herausgabe von angeblich ihm gehörenden Gegenständen verklagte, worauf er wohl auf Befehl Louis Philipps nach England deportiert wurde.- Er starb 1845 in den Niederlanden - auf seinen Grabstein schrieben Verehrer 'Hier ruht Ludwig XVII. König von Frankreich'. Die Unsicherheit über eine eventuelle Aufrichtigkeit Naundorffs spiegeln die verschiedenen Publikationen der folgenden Jahrzehnte. Einen Abschluss fand die Geschichte - allerdings zu Naundorffs ungunsten - im Jahre 2000 anhand von genetischen Vergleichen des in St. Denise bestatteten Herz des 10jährig im Temple-Gefängnis gestorbenen Dauphin mit Erbsubstanz von weiteren, heute lebenden Nachkommen Maria Theresias. Das Herz gehörte tatsächlich dem wahren Ludwig XVII.-

Philadelphia: Printed for the Author, 1785. First American edition of the most substantial agricultural text yet published in the United States; it was published during Varlo's unsuccessful sojourn in America (see below). Varlo (ca. 1725-ca. 1795), was an agriculturist and inventor of a number of agricultural machines. The present book was first published in York in 1770. "In 1784, while he was living in Sloane Square, in London, Varlo became involved in a somewhat ludicrous episode. He had bought papers and charters supposedly granted by Charles I to Sir Edward Plowden, entitling him to colonize New Albion (later New Jersey) in America. This attempt at colonization had failed and in Charles II's reign the charter was superseded by a new grant to the duke of York. Armed with his papers (which were probably forgeries), Varlo went out to the American colonies in 1784 hoping to be recognized as governor of the province of New Jersey and to take over one-third of the territory. The case was tried before the colonial courts, but Varlo's claim was dismissed…Before returning to England he travelled for a year through New England, Maryland, and Virginia (where he met George Washington)."-ODNB. The present American edition has been significantly revised. The preliminary leaves in the first volume vary from copy to copy: this has six preliminary leaves of subscribers, four for Philadelphia and two for Boston and other parts of New England. Some browning but a nice set. ❧ Evans 19338. Rink, Technical America, 1100. Sabin 98636.

        LE ARTI CHE VANNO PER VIA NELLA CITTA? DI VENEZIA Inventate ed incise da Gaetano Zompini. Aggiuntavi una memoria di detto Autore.

      Venezia,, 1785.. In folio (mm. 488x348), legatura di fine Ottocento in mz. marocchino rosso con ang., fregi e tit. oro al dorso - a firma di Larner & Knight - 4 cc.nn. (antiporta figurata incisa, frontespizio e Indice incisi entro bordura decorata, Memoria della vita di Gaetano Zompini scritta da Giammaria Sasso), con una splendida raccolta di 60 tavole numerate e incise all?acquaforte. Le magnifiche composizioni offrono animate scene a più personaggi, raffiguranti episodi di attività varie nelle vie di Venezia, cioè professionisti, mestieri ambulanti, giochi popolari; ciascuna tavola è commentata, nel margine inferiore della lastra, da una terzina in dialetto veneziano. "Seconda edizione" di questa rara e importante opera. L?A., ?Gaetano Zompini (1700-1778), painter and engraver, was encouraged by the printmaker and collector Anton Maria Zanetti (ca. 1750), to make a series of drawings of Venetian traders and hawkers. He later etched these drawings and they were published in the present work. "Le Arti" is a highly original work which suggests, with vivid immediacy, the harsh reality of the daily life of the Venetian people?. Cfr. Cicogna, p. 250 - Cicognara,1829 cita l?ediz. del 1789 e dichiara: ?Sono tavole 40, non compreso il frontespizio figurato e l?elenco, le quali furono incise con gran maestria e facilità pittoresca: divenute rarissime, poichè le lamine disperse, o convertite ad altro uso non ne tirarono che pochi esemplari. Cfr. anche Morazzoni ?il libro illustrato veneziano del Settecentto?, p. 186: ?Le Arti..? di Gaetano Zompini son troppo note per illustrarne ancora una volta i pregi, che rendono la serie zompiniana degna di paragone colle famose tavole incise dal Mitelli su disegno del Carracci? - Colas,3120 cita le varie ediz. a partire dalla prima di Venezia, 1753. Esemplare su carta con filigrana alle 3 mezze lune con la scritta ?Imperial? e anche con ?A V? sormontata da un fiore. La tiratura di questa edizione fu di 100 o 200 copie. Il ns. porta l?ex-libris di Charles Shaw-Lefevre, 1st Viscount Eversley of Heckfield in the County of Southhampton. Alone al marg. bianco esterno della tav. 60 e lieve su altre 5 (al fine); macchietta sempre al marg. bianco di alcune tavv., altrimenti esemplare ben conservato.

        Hamisha Humshey Torah. [Pentateuch].

      London Alexander A. and Son 1785 - First Edition. 5 Volumes. Small quarto (20.5 x 12 cm), Vol. I [133]pp., Vol. II [117]pp., Vol. III [87]pp., Vol. IV [99]pp., Vol. V [89]pp., engraved frontispiece to each volume. Text in Hebrew and English. Contemporary tree-calf, marbled endpapers, gilt spines. Lightly browned, edges rubbed, Vol. II rebacked, with red and gilt supralibros of Abraham Goldsmid on front cover. First Hebrew Pentateuch with English Translation by a Jew. For many years after the resettlement of Jews in England in the mid-seventeenth century, the Sephardic community of London continued to use the Spanish and Portuguese translations of the holy texts. However, with the progressive Anglicisation of the Jews in England there was a growing demand for an English translation, suitable for Jewish educational needs (at the time the only available English translation was the "authorised" King James version, which was oriented to the Christian audience). Alexander's version provided a counter version, aimed at a Jewish audience, translated by a Jew, with the Hebrew original and the English translation printed side by side. Alexander Alexander (Alexander ben Judah Leib) was one of the pioneers of the Hebrew printing in London, active in the 18th-19th centuries. He had established his Hebrew press in London in 1770 and published the first bilingual Hebrew-English Common Prayer-book and Haggadah, prior to the publishing of the Pentateuch. This copy was formerly in the collection of the British Jewish financier and philanthropist Abraham Goldsmid, carrying his red and gilt supralibros on the front cover of the second volume.

        A Description of the Library at Merly in the County of Dorset. Description de la Bibliothèque de Merly dans le Comté de Dorset

      Title with large engraved allegorical vignette & 25 engraved plates (seven are double-page, many folding). Parallel texts in English & French. 2 p.l., 14 pp. Large folio, cont. marbled boards (rebacked & recornered, some foxing), orig. red morocco lettering piece on spine. London: Printed for the Author by John Nichols, 1785. First illustrated edition. This privately printed and remarkable work is a splendid record of probably the most magnificent private library building constructed in England in the 18th century. Ralph Willet (1719-95), after inheriting the family's West Indian estates, devoted his life to scholarship, botany, and the collecting of books and pictures. He formed a very rich library, strong in incunabula, travel, botany, topography, and architecture. To properly house these books, Willet constructed a library room for his house at Merly. "Few collectors can have given more thought to the creation of a fitting casket for their treasures…The room was 84 feet long 23 feet wide, and 23 feet high, of which 5 feet, six inches were coving. The bookcases, 13 feet 4 inches high, were of carved mahogany, enriched with a complete Ionic order. The top of each bookcase was flanked with busts, and in the centre was an ornamental scroll inscribed with the subject contained in that case, crowned by the lamp of science with the motto 'Non Extinguatur'… "But it was the plasterwork of cove and ceiling which made this unique among Georgian libraries. Thought up by Willet and executed by a 'Mr. Collins', the theme was nothing less than the origin and progress of civilization… "This masterpiece of Georgian architecture, in which Willet and Collins were assisted by Banks and 'Athenian' Stuart…existed for little more than 40 years, for the library wing was pulled down by Willett's nephew, a few years after the books were sold in 1813."-Alan G. Thomas, "Ralph Willet of Merly" in The Book Collector (1963), pp. 439-448 (see the article for a very detailed description of the library's decorations). An unillustrated edition appeared, limited to 200 copies, in 1776. Very good copy. Contemporary bookplate with interlocking monogram "N.C." (?) below the coronet of an English Marquess.

        LE ARTI CHE VANNO PER VIA NELLA CITTA' DI VENEZIA. Inventate ed incise da Gaetano Zompini. Aggiuntavi una memoria di detto Autore.

      1785. In folio (mm. 488x348), legatura di fine Ottocento in mz. marocchino rosso con ang., fregi e tit. oro al dorso - a firma di Larner & Knight - 4 cc.nn. (antiporta figurata incisa, frontespizio e Indice incisi entro bordura decorata, Memoria della vita di Gaetano Zompini scritta da Giammaria Sasso), con una splendida raccolta di 60 tavole numerate e incise all'acquaforte. Le magnifiche composizioni offrono animate scene a più personaggi, raffiguranti episodi di attività varie nelle vie di Venezia, cioè professionisti, mestieri ambulanti, giochi popolari; ciascuna tavola è commentata, nel margine inferiore della lastra, da una terzina in dialetto veneziano. "Seconda edizione" di questa rara e importante opera. L'A., "Gaetano Zompini (1700-1778), painter and engraver, was encouraged by the printmaker and collector Anton Maria Zanetti (ca. 1750), to make a series of drawings of Venetian traders and hawkers. He later etched these drawings and they were published in the present work. "Le Arti" is a highly original work which suggests, with vivid immediacy, the harsh reality of the daily life of the Venetian people". Cfr. Cicogna, p. 250 - Cicognara,1829 cita l'ediz. del 1789 e dichiara: "Sono tavole 40, non compreso il frontespizio figurato e l'elenco, le quali furono incise con gran maestria e facilità pittoresca: divenute rarissime, poichè le lamine disperse, o convertite ad altro uso non ne tirarono che pochi esemplari. Cfr. anche Morazzoni "il libro illustrato veneziano del Settecentto", p. 186: "Le Arti.." di Gaetano Zompini son troppo note per illustrarne ancora una volta i pregi, che rendono la serie zompiniana degna di paragone colle famose tavole incise dal Mitelli su disegno del Carracci" - Colas,3120 cita le varie ediz. a partire dalla prima di Venezia, 1753. Esemplare su carta con filigrana alle 3 mezze lune con la scritta "Imperial" e anche con "A V" sormontata da un fiore. La tiratura di questa edizione fu di 100 o 200 copie. Il ns. porta l'ex-libris di Charles Shaw-Lefevre, 1st Viscount Eversley of Heckfield in the County of Southhampton. Alone al marg. bianco esterno della tav. 60 e lieve su altre 5 (al fine); macchietta sempre al marg. bianco di alcune tavv., altrimenti esemplare ben conservato.

        A circumstantial journal Of the long and tedious blockade and siege of gibraltar, from the twelfth of september, 1779, to the third day of february, 1783, containing An Authentic Account of the most Remarkable Transactions, in which the Enemy's Motions, Works, Approaches, Firings, &c. are particularly described

      Liverpool: Printed by J. Schofield, 1785. 152, 145-266, [14]. With engraved portrait frontispiece, folding map and an engraved view of Don Marina's floating batteries. Handsomely bound in contemporary polished sheep, gilt, contrasting red morocco lettering-piece. A fine copy with only the slightest rubbing. Internally clean and crisp, small paper flaw to G1 without loss of sense. Early inked initials to title. The Siege of Gibraltar (1779-83), during the American War of Independence, was an unsuccessful attempt by a joint force of Spain and France to capture the Rock of Gibraltar. Gibraltar had been a de facto British possession since 1704, officially awarded to the British crown under the Treaty of Utrecht in 1713, and remains so to this day. The four year siege remains the longest ever endured by the British Army. Samuel Ancell (c.1760-1802), English military writer and soldier serving with the 58th Regiment during the Blockade, composed the definitive account of the conflict using letters sent to his brother. The first edition was published in 1774; with the help of subscriptions this extended second edition appeared in 1775. ESTC T162675.. Second edition, with additions. 8vo.

        Du mal vertébral, ou de l'impotence des extrémités inférieures, qui reconnaît pour cause un vice de la colonne épinière, avec le moyen de la guérir

      1785 - (4), XX et 48 pages Paris, Méquignon l'aîné, 1785, in-8, (4), XX et 48 pages, reliure moderne à la bradel à partir d'un vélin de remploi, dos lisse, titre manuscrit en rouge et noir, Première édition française, due à Claude-François Duchanoy, professeur à la Faculté de médecine de Paris. En 1779, le chirurgien anglais, Percivall Pott (1717-1788), fit paraitre à Londres ses Remarks on that Kind of Palsy of the Lower Limbs, qui furent traduites la même année en français par Beerenbroek sous le titre Remarques sur cette espèce de paralysie des extrémités inférieures. En 1782, Pott revient sur cette maladie qui cause la perte de l'utilisation des membres inférieurs, dont il n'a pas déterminé l'origine tuberculeuse, mais dont il est parvenu, le premier, à donner une description claire ; il publie une seconde dissertation, Farther Remarks on the Useless State of the Lower Limbs in Consequence of a Curvature of the Spine, donnée ici en français pour la première fois. L'ouvrage prolonge et affine la description de 1779, tout en apportant de nouvelles contributions pour la guérison de cette maladie qui, depuis, porte le nom de Mal de Pott. Toutes les nombreuses descriptions chirurgicales de Pott apportèrent d'importantes avancées et des vues nouvelles, notamment, au sujet des hernies, de la lésion des voies lacrymales, des fistules anales, du cancer du scrotum, des fractures, et de la tuberculose des vertèbres. Bon exemplaire d'un texte pionner d'orthopédie peu commun. Wellcome IV, p. 424, pour l'édition originale londonienne. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

First edition, and an absolutely delicious set in fine contemporary turquoise morocco, gilt, of this well-known book which enjoyed many later editions. Paterson (1738-1825), is most famous for his series of road books and cartographical works; his main contribution was to improve the information on roads. While making no significant innovations, "he made improvements in style and presentation, however, and added factual detail - so much so that his name was for many years an indicator of reliability in road books, and was attached to them long after he had stopped compiling them."-ODNB. Very fine and fresh set. Seemingly printed on thick paper. ? Fordham, The Road-Books & Itineraries of Great Britain 1570 to 1850 (1924), p. 36.

        Sarasa zufu [trans.: Pictorial Record of Foreign Designs]

      54 full-page woodcuts. 46 folding leaves. 8vo, orig. blind-stamped decorated wrappers, orig. block printed title label on upper cover, new stitching. Osaka: Inaba, 1785. Second edition (1st ed.: 1781, an impossibly rare book). In the 17th and 18th centuries, there was an active trade between India and Japan, importing Indian "sarasa" chintz - a highly glazed printed calico - from the Coromandel coast to the island nation. Manuals were produced in Japan with color directives to encourage Japanese textile printers to copy the Indian designs. In this manual, the author describes the complicated technique in which colors are fixed on the surface of cotton with woodblock mordant stamping. Endless varieties of vegetable, animal, and mineral pigments were employed. The illustrations present what seems to be the infinite variety of possible designs. For each design, there are marginal printed notes regarding name of the pattern, intended colors, and fabric. Fine copy.

      Acquaforte e bulino di mm 261 x 182. II/VI. Vergata veneziana tre lune, filigrana tre lune e scritta imperial. Bel foglio a pieni margini. Perfetta condizione. "Cazze, sculieri, canole da bote Aghi, britole, forfe; ma a bon prezzo; Vago vendando in fin, che se fa note". A destra in basso numero 40. Proveniente da "Le Arti che vanno per via nella Città di Venezia inventate ed incise da Gaetano Zompini. Aggiuntavi una memoria di detto autore" Venezia 1785. Magnifica incisione in acquaforte e bulino della serie delle "Arti che van per via" di Zompini, stampata in una rarissima prima edizione coeva nel 1753, ed in questo secondo stato nel 1785 dal residente britannico John Strange. Venne ripubblicato in Inghilterra altre quattro volte. Da una lettera di John Strange si viene a sapere che la tiratura della presente edizione era di cento o duecento copie. Dario Succi "Da Carlevarijs a Tiepolo, Incisori veneti e friulani del settecento" pag. 454. "Gaetano Zompini nacque in Narvesa, nel Territorio Trivigiano, il 29 settembre 1698; ed inclinando da fanciullo alla Pittura, fu mandato a Venezia nella Scuola del Cavalier Bambini in que' tempi riputatissimo. Apprese dal suddetto oltre li principi del buon dissegno, anche in gran parte il suo modo di dipingere, ed uscito poi di detta Scuola si diede anche ad imitare la aniera di Sebastiano Ricci, allora dal medesimo introdotta ed assai stimata...Inventò pure e disegnò perilsig. Zattastampatore in Venezia buona parte delle Figure per le Edizioni del Dante e del Petrarca da lui stampata. Questo degno Pittore visse però quasi sempre povero, avendo numerosa Famiglia. Conoscendo per altro il di lui merito il fu Sig. Antonio Maria Zanetti, lo tirò appresso di sé, impiegandolo in vari lavori, ed in particolare in vari disegni, e lavorò in gran parte sopra alcuni rami tratti da' disegni di Gio. Benedetto Castiglione, posseduti dal detto Signore, e che avea già incominciato ad incidere; e per far la raccolta più numerosa, inventò, disegnò, ed incise egli stesso alcuni di detti Rami sul gusto affatto dell'Autore, e toccati con spirito. Non avendo poi esso Sig. Zanetti di che ordinargli di più, s'immaginarono di dare alle stampe una Raccolta delle Arti di Venezia, che vanno per via. Si accinse dunque lo Zompini al lavoro, ed inventò, disegnò, ed incise Rami num.60 rappresentanti l'Arti suddette, e sotto la direzione dello stesso sig. Zanetti, ed a imitazione poi delle Arti di Bologna similmente inventate ed incise dal celebre Annibale Carracci. A quest'opera fatta all'acqua forte, della quale alcune copie furono anche miniate, aggiunse sotto ogni rame alcuni versi il Dottor Questini Prete di Santa Maria Mater Domini, amico tanto dello Zompini, che del Zanetti. Pochi anni dopo mancò di vita il sig. Zanetti, il quale però per ilmerito dello Zompini, gli lasciò una picciola mensuale provigione sua vita durante. Dopo questa disgrazia ne successe allo Zompini un'altra peggiore, incominciandosi ad indebolire la vista; cosicchè alla fine la perdette affatto, e strascinandosi in tal modo fra le miserie e la vecchiaia, mancò di vivere il 20 Maggio 1778 nell'avanzata età di 76 anni."
