DUNTHORNE, James junior]
c1787]., [London or Colchester. A book auction by the 'Colchester Hogarth' Pencil, pen and black ink and watercolour. A charming scene of a book auction, possibly held at Sotheby's, or Leigh & Sotheby at the time. The room is dominated by a great bookcase which is being hand-picked by a young porter up a ladder. The crowd is fashionably dressed and caught in a variety of poses, such as greeting each other and conversing, eying the bidder in the back of the room, checking the catalogue, and perusing one of the recent purchases, as the seated lady in the middle is doing. The smiling auctioneer is about to knock down his gavel, and the scribe below intent in recording the sale. The drawing was exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1787 and was marked as 'for sale'. It is the work of James Dunthorne junior (c1758-1794), an artist from Colchester, his father also a painter mostly of portraiture and miniature works, who worked as a mapmaker and surveyor on the side. Dunthorne junior ran a print shop on Colchester High Street, and exhibited 14 works at the Royal Academy between 1783 and 1792, with the exception of four years (1785, 1786, 1788, 1789). His favoured themes were mostly genre and domestic subjects, and a number of his drawings were engraved by the artist and caricaturist Thomas Rowlandson, thus showing that Dunthorne junior had some reputation as an artist (Benham). Some of his works include 'Private Card Party', showing a fashionable party of Colchester elite, 'Morning Concert', 'Skating', 'A bath shop', and 'The Pieman'. The lack of works recorded after 1792 and the dark … [Click Below for Full Description]

Jones, William
Printed by R. Raikes for G.G.J. and J. Robinson, Glocester, 1787. With an interesting, possibly Colonial bookplate of John Moore, with the motto "Nihil utile quod non honestum". A bookplate of this description appears in "Loan Exhibition of Colonial Book-plates", National Society of Colonial Dames in the State of New York.1908. Page 24, (no.) 225. It has a central heraldic shield with ten crosses on it, surmounted by a cockerel, with a man playing a horn on the left and a bare-breasted woman seated on the right reading a book held by a cherub. Greenery and flowers surround them. The motto appears in a small banner above the name of John Moore at the bottom of the bookplate. There were several important men named John Moore in the American Colonies; the immigrant John Moore Hon. Esq (1659 England-1732 Philadelphia) who was Attorney General of Pennsylvania; his son Colonel John Moore (1686 South Carolina - 1749 New York City), a soldier, NY merchant and Tory who established an estate called Moore's Folly on 2000 acres on the present site of West Point; also the son of Col. John named John (1719-1749?) who possibly died without issue in Jamaica (Find-a-Grave). Col. John's estate on the Hudson was bequeathed to his son Stephen Moore (1734 NYC -1799 NC), who sold the land to the American government sometime after 1790. However, the book is dated 1787, much later than these gentlemen, so the connection is unknown. The author, also known as William Jones of Nayland (1726 - 1800) examines Dissenters to the Church of England, and concludes with a dire warning that religious dissent … [Click Below for Full Description]

Charles-Joseph PANCKOUCKE (1736 - 1798) est un écrivain et libraire-éditeur français, éditeur de l'Encyclopédie de Diderot et d'Alembert, et de l'Encyclopédie Méthodique. Grand ami des philosophes et premier « magnat de l'édition », il considérait l'Arioste comme « le plus grand de tous les poètes » et il a décidé d'en fournir une nouvelle version en français, gêné qu'il était de la médiocrité des traductions précédentes. Il s'explique dans un essai sur « l'Art de Traduire », en tête du tome 1, long de 52 pages, qui reste un modèle du genre. Nicolas-Étienne FRAMERY (1745-1810), musicien et auteur dramatique, adaptateur de Puccini, prendra le relais à partir du cinquième volume.

Julian, Antonio
1787. Madrid. Antonio de Sancha. 8vo. 1 ff., xxx, 280 pp., folding map. Contemporary Spanish calf, spine flat with gilt tooling and red lettering pieces, also lettered in gilt, some minor rubbing and scratching, mainly to boards, over a good-looking original binding. Fine copy, wide margins; overall very clean and fresh, with the seldom-found map.- First edition. A rare work, when found with the folding map of the Port of Santa Marta; it is an exhaustive description of the Colombian region, including details of its Pearls and the fishermen who extract them from the Ocean, itsmineralogy (gold and silver mines and precious stones), riches, as well as information on the gastronomy and local produces. A large portion of the work is dedicated to the native population, namely the Tayronas, Arnacos, Tupes, Chimilas, Motilones and Guagiros, their customs, tradition, and way of living in general –constituting a rather scarcely seen report on the lives of Colombian Indians. The third part deals almost exclusively with the hydrographic reality of Santa Marta, its rivers, and ports. It contains also a detailed description of an herb called "Hayo", which the author deems better than the Mate from Paraguay, Tea, or Coffee. Evidently interested in the native population, Julian dedicates a portion of the work to the study of the language of the Guajiros, saying “that it is clear, short and sonorous, and it appears to him to be the best American-Indian language. He states that he had a dictionary of this tongue in his possession, given him by a cleric, a brother of … [Click Below for Full Description]

UP FOR AUCTION: RARE BOOK: History of the Internal Affairs of the United Provinces, from the Year 1780, to the Commencement of Hostilities in June 1787. by Anonymous (many internet pages declare William Godwin to be the author of this), Published by G.G. J. & J. Robinson, Paternoster-Row, London, England, 1787, 1st Edition ( 1787 stated on Title Page), FULL LEATHER Book, 354 pages, complete in one volume. This book is about the Republic of the Seven United Provinces, which is now called the Netherlands. This book discusses the revolutions in the Netherlands between pro-British and pro-French in their country between 1780 and 1787. The book was published in late 1787. Although no author is named on the book itself, the well-known English author, William Godwin (1756 - 1836), is stated on many internet pages as the author of this book. This would have been a very early publication for him, and he may have been protecting himself by issuing it anonymously. See actual book and contents in ebay pics above. The top edge is gilded, the text appears to be made of handmade paper, and the Half-Title Page states "History of the United Provinces....Price Five Shillings." This is a nice, tight, antique, leather book.

[Dalrymple, Alexander]. - Taylor, Robert.
1787. Small folio (31.5 x 24.5 cm). 12 pp. Contemporary, vellum-backed, stiff marbled wrappers. Rare second edition, second state, of a journal of a voyage from Sumatra to Bengal, kept by Captain Robert Taylor on the ship Ceres, followed by additional comments from "a manuscript, which may be depended upon". Locations sighted include: Hog Island, the Cocos islands, Aceh, the Straits of Malacca, Barren Island and the Andaman Islands. - The journal was published by the eccentric Scottish geographer Alexander Dalrymple (1737-1808), Captain Cook's leading rival. As hydrographer for the East India Company, Dalrymple would publish an annual series of memoirs and detailed ships' logs that he obtained in that function. He would compare historical sources gathered from extensive archival research with newly obtained data straight from the ships and his own careful observations. With these publications Dalrymple became the originator of official British hydrography and as such they give a unique impression of the (development of the) scientific background that laid behind the trade of the British Empire in the East. - The journal was first published in 1782 together with A brief statement of the prevailing winds from monsieur Après De Mannevillette. - A very good copy. A. S. Cook, Alexander Dalrymple (1737-1808), (PhD diss., 1992), A120. ESTC T75520 (6 copies). For Dalrymple: A.S.

Son existence riche en épisodes picaresques fait entrer de plain-pied dans la folle et fascinante société vénitienne du XVIIIe siècle, puis à la cour de Louis XV et de Louis XVI. Homme curieux de tout, observateur avisé et malicieux, Goldoni évoque les coulisses des théâtres, les cabinets de diplomates ou les champs de bataille, pénètre chez les grands seigneurs comme chez les petites gens et rapporte, en passant, un entretien avec Vivaldi à Venise ou avec Rousseau à Paris" (P. de Roux (éd.), Mercure de France, 2003).(Spinelli, 'Bibliografia goldoniana', 241).Très bon exemplaire, bien relié, entièrement non rogné.

AFRICA - SENEGAL] PELLETAN, [Jean Gabriel
Ve. Panckoucke, 1787. First Edition. Pelletan served as the director of the Compagnie de Sénégal, the administrative company for the colony, in 1787 and 1788, though the present work was composed from memory while Pelletan was imprisoned in 1793 at the height of La Terreur. The "Mémoire" provides geographical descriptions of the western coast of the African continent as well as an account of imports and exports, the latter chiefly rubber and slaves (Pelletan mentions 1000 to 1200, perhaps for the years under his administration, prior to the suppression of the slave trade). The second half of the work deals primarily in describing the ravages of the slave trade on the country and it people: "It is without a doubt that the abolition of the slave trade will completely change the face of the region, devastated for centuries by ceaseless warfare, crippled by the enslavement of portions of its peoples, and depopulated by this horrific commerce conducted by degraded persons and greedy European merchants+ who can only satisfy their avarice at the price of the blood and freedom of these miserable Africans" (our translation; pp. 48-9). Pelletan also dedicates brief sections to the moral and physical attributes of the Senegalese inhabitants, as well as a description of their homes and pottery, before proposing a detailed outline for a new,m post-slave trade colonial government for the region. (See George E. Brooks, "Western Africa and Cabo Verde, 1790s-1830s" (2010), p. 13; and Paul Masson, "Marseille et la Colonisation Française" (1906), pp. 231-2.).

Raised bands in red gilt, red morocco labels, spine numerals in gilt. With the signature of Sir Hew Dalrymple Hamiltion, and the name of his seat: Bargeny (in Ayrshire) in each volume, dated 1788.

It should be noted that 18thcentury bindings like these are notorious for their fragility, and it is quite rare to find them in such fine condition.

Ferdinando FAMBRINI (Attivo a Lucca nella seconda metà del XVIII sec.)
1787. Veduta della piazza antistante la Chiesa di S. Caterina. Alle spalle della chiesa, come annotato in didascalia, si nota il Seminario Nuovo ed il Convitto Ecclesiastico, mentre sulla destra si nota la Confraternita del Crocione Soppressa. Acquaforte, firmata in lastra in basso. Magnifica prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva, con margini, in ottimo stato di conservazione. Rara. L'opera appartiene ad una serie omogenea di 14 vedute della città incise da lucchese Ferdinando Fambrini verosibilmente a partire dal 1786/87. Dietro al nome dell'incisore, al cui nome le opere sono legate, rivela il ruolo determinante delle due figure egenoni dell'ambiente artistico e della cultura figurativa pisana del seconodo setteccento, quali il pittore Giovan Battista Tempesti e Alessandro da Morrona. A quest'utlimo si può forse attribuire l'iniziativa e la scelta iconografica delle opere pubblicate dal Fambrini. Il luogo di stampa potrebbe essere sia Pisa che Lucca. View of the square in front of the Church of S. Caterina.

Ferdinando FAMBRINI (Attivo a Lucca nella seconda metà del XVIII sec.)
1787. Veduta della Ponte di Mezzo, a Pisa. Oltre al ponte, sono rappresentati e riportati in didascalia: la Torre dell'Orologio, il Palazzo Pretorio, le Logge di Banchi, il Palazzo del Pubblico , la Dogana e la chiesa di S. Cristina. Acquaforte, firmata in lastra in basso. Magnifica prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva, con margini, in ottimo stato di conservazione. Rara. L'opera appartiene ad una serie omogenea di 14 vedute della città incise da lucchese Ferdinando Fambrini verosibilmente a partire dal 1786/87. Dietro al nome dell'incisore, al cui nome le opere sono legate, rivela il ruolo determinante delle due figure egenoni dell'ambiente artistico e della cultura figurativa pisana del seconodo setteccento, quali il pittore Giovan Battista Tempesti e Alessandro da Morrona. A quest'utlimo si può forse attribuire l'iniziativa e la scelta iconografica delle opere pubblicate dal Fambrini. Il luogo di stampa potrebbe essere sia Pisa che Lucca. View of the Ponte di Mezzo, in Pisa. In addition to the bridge, are represented and reported in the caption:Torre dell'Orologio, Palazzo Pretorio, Logge di Banchi, Palazzo del Pubblico , Dogana and church of S. Cristina. Etching, signed at the lower right. A very good impression, on contemporary laid paper, with margins, perfect condition. Rare. "Pisa, Iconografia a stampa dal XV al XVIII secolo" (1991): pp. 221-245, n. 88; "Pisa e il suo territorio: tra cartografia e vedutismo dal XV° secolo al XIX° secolo" Raccolta di Valentino Cai vol I° pag. 90 N° 109.

Rigobert BONNE (1729 ca. - 1795 ca.)
1787. Mappa delle Hawaii di Cook. All'interno vengono mostrate le varie tappe del passaggio di Cook attraverso le isole, comprese di date, oltre che le caratteristiche topografiche delle isole e un grande inserto dedicato alla Baia di Karakakooa. Cook lasciò le Hawaii nel 1779, dopo aver visitato la maggior parte delle isole principali e aver fatto un lavoro di mappatura molto accurato. Il grande dibattito su questa mappa riguarda il fatto se il lavoro sia stato realizzato da Henry Roberts o William Bligh. Mentre il testo dell'Official Account of Cook's Third Voyage accredita Henry Roberts come autore delle mappe, la copia del British Hydrographical Office dell'Official Account include un'annotazione a mano di Henry Bligh, in cui afferma di essere stato l'autore di questa mappa e di aver realizzato le mappe delle Hawaii. La mappa è apparsa nel Bonne's Atlas Supplement, pubblicato a Parigi nel 1787, che comprende nel Volume II molte delle mappe derivate dai tre viaggi di Cook. Striking full color example of Cook's first map of Hawaii, showing Cook's tracks through the Islands, including dates, topographical features of the islands and a large insert of Karakakooa Bay. Cook left Hawaii in 1779, after coasting most of the major islands and having done a remarkably accurate job of mapping the islands for a first visit. The great debate regarding this map is whether the work was done by Henry Roberts or William Bligh of Mutiny on the Bounty Fame. While the text of the Official Account of Cook's Third Voyage credits Henry Roberts as the surveyor and maker of the charts, the Briti … [Click Below for Full Description]
