        One if by Land, Two if by Sea" ? Exceedingly rare and desirable document signed at Old North Church by sexton Robert Newman who, at the request of Paul Revere, had hung two lanterns in the steeple of his church to alert the colonial militia that the British were invading ?by sea?

      "Exceedingly Rare Manuscript Document Signed ?Robert Newman? as Sexton of Boston?s Old North Church, 1 page, 7.25"" x 4"". On laid paper, two mounting remnants on verso. Fine condition. Funeral expense bill ?for Negro Woman? filled out in unknown hand. In full, ""1787 Mr. Samuel Bradstreet to Robert Newman / Augt 10 Digging Grave for Negro Woman 5..0 / Cash Pd for ye Pall 4..6 / Ditto for tooling Bells 2..8 / My Attendance, Borrowing Chears &c 6 - / £ 0..18...2 Recd Payment ?" Robert Newman? Docketed on verso ?Funeral / Expenses of / Billah / 1787.? According to Todd W. Van Beck in the ""Handbook of Death and Dying,"" Clifton D. Bryant, Editor in Chief (Thousand Oaks, California: Sage Publications, 2003), ""Probably the oldest documentation of an undertaker being certified to do the job occurred in Boston during 1786. City records indicate that Robert Newman was registered that year with the Selectmen of Boston (the town council) as 'one of those willing to undertake the charge of funerals.' ?It was undertaker-sexton Robert Newman who, on April 18, 1775, hung the lanterns in the steeple of Old North Church to alert the colonial militia of the British invasion, which culminated in the battles of Lexington and Concord and the American Revolution."" Robert Newman hung two lanterns to signal that the British were marching to Lexington and Concord by sea across the Charles River and not by land. Ironically, as a teenager, in Boston, one of Pail Revere?s first jobs was as a bell ringer at the Old North Church, then called Christ Church. Also present is a 5"" x 3"" envelope, stamp cut off, postmarked Charlestown, Mass., November 14, 1876, addressed to E.N. Coburn in Charlestown noted to be the envelope in which the treasured document here offered was preserved."

Necker, suivi d'une lettre sur ce plan, & des observations d'un républicain sur ces mémoires ; & en général sur le bien qu'on doit attendre de ces administrations dans les monarchies

      Lausanne 1787 - Grand in-8° broché, IV-167 pages. Couverture d'attente de l'époque, exemplaire à grandes marges sans rousseurs dans un bel état. Edition à la même date que l'originale, qui semble être celle de 181 pages. Il est courant, Goldschmith et Kreis ne donnant aucune indication permettant de partager de ces deux impressions, de considérer que la plus longue est l'originale (le texte étant rigoureusement identique). L'imprimeur économisant ainsi du papier en recomposant le texte. De plus nous avons découvert avec l'aide d'un client savant qu'un incipit a la fin du volume faisait de la réclame pour la Vie de Turgot, parue en 1788. Autrement dit, il s'agit bien d'un deuxième tirage, avec une fausse mention d'édition parue l'année suivante. L'impression en 181 pp. n'apparaissant que dans quelques bibliothèques.

        A new and authentic system of universal geography, antients and modern including all the late and important discoveries INSPIRED BY THE VOYAGES OF COOK

      With 100 unnumbered plates, including frontispiece and 22 maps (12 folding). Without a revised list of plates and instructions to the binder sometimes recorded in other copies of later editions and possibly lacking the two-page list of subscribers (though no extant copies of the fifth, or sixth, or seventh editions record it, suggesting it was never issued at all in the later editions). Some browning and wear to the pages, particularly around the edges. A few of the plates have tears in the margins, 2 of which affect the engravings (1 repaired). Generally a very clean copy with no major damage. Later edition (possibly fifth) of this rare and important work, which aimed to deliver the most accurate, impressive, and up-to-date system of universal geography available. Although this thick tome boasts ?"a genuine history and description of the whole world,?" a sizeable portion of its contents is devoted to the discoveries of Captain James A. Cook. The text begins with a description of New Holland (the historic name for Australia), where Cook had landed less than twenty years before, and includes updated information on Botany Bay, Norfolk Island, and Port Jackson - - the first European settlement in Australia. Cook?'s voyages also inspired many of the plates. In addition to the maps and city views, Bankes also commissioned ethnographic plates depicting both exotic and familiar types, from ?"The King of the Congo preparing for an excursion?" to ?"Ancient English dresses.?" Bankes?'s work must have been quite popular in its day as there were at least seven known editions executed in quick succession between 1787-1797. Unfortunately, none of them are firmly dated in the title or elsewhere. Although research into the various editions and their dates of publication has thus far been scanty at best, Alan Frost?'s inquiry in the La Trobe Journal offers some insight into this convoluted problem. According to his research, the copy here most closely resembles the Mitchell Library?'s copy, thought to be the fifth edition (originally thought to be fourth - see his Addendum), which Frost assigns a date of 1792, in line with certain historical references in the text. The bulk of the text remained the same from edition to edition, and the only major differences lie in the title wording, the prefatory material, and the incorporation of new travel accounts, set forth in the opening pages. Frost also notes that the number of plates was reduced and refined in later editions, though he does not give any details about what those changes were. In their research on maps, Perry and Prescott offered a different theory -- that Bankes?'s work was issued in ?"90 weekly parts?" and that only the titles and the New Holland section were updated and reissued at intervals. It is not entirely clear how they arrived at this conclusion, but given that the volume is numbered consecutively from 1-990 rather than 11 page cycles, and that there is no mention of weekly issues anywhere in the text, it seems unlikely that this was the case. Bankes (b. 1744) was a Reverend, Vicar of Dixton in Monmouthshire, and author of one other book entitled The Christian?'s Family Bible. Little else about Bankes?'s life and work has been recorded, despite the clear popularity of his geographical masterpiece.

Besonders hübsch sind mehrere Bilder zu Buchhändlern, Kunstsammlern, Antiquitätenhändlern etc. - "Wir haben hier einige der ganz wenigen Folgen von Karikaturen vor uns, die während des 18.

Splendida, fondamentale opera illustrata. Le acque di Montecatini erano già conosciute quando agli inizi del XV secolo Ugolino da Montecatini nel suo "Tractatus de Balneis" prescriveva alcune regole per la cura termale. Nel 1430 la creazione di una peschiera nel vicino Padule di Fucecchio, voluta dalla Repubblica di Firenze, causò problemi per lo scolo delle acque dei Bagni. Iniziò così un lungo periodo di declino, nonostante che le acque di Montecatini fossero consigliate da illustri scienziati, come Gabriele Falloppia, Andrea Bacci, Andrea Cesalpino, Pompeo della Barba, Francesco Redi ed altri. Finalmente, nella seconda metà del XVIII secolo, Pietro Leopoldo, abbattuta la peschiera, riedificò i Bagni, dando avvio ad una felice stagione per le terme. Nel XIX secolo Montecatini ed altre importanti stazioni termali della Toscana, come Bagni di Pisa (San Giuliano) e Bagni di Lucca, raggiunsero il massimo splendore, divenendo luoghi frequentati da celebri personalità italiane ed europee.

        Unkenneling the Fox-Hounds. L'acher la Meute

      Published by Robt. Sayer, 53 Fleet Street, London 1787 - Mezzotint. Printed on laid paper. In excellent condition with the exception of two mended tears in the upper margin. Tear across the bottom right corner. Image size: 9 3/8 x 13 3/4 inches. This is a lovely rich impression of this striking print which perfectly demonstrates Seymour's artistry and Burford's skill as an engraver. James Seymour is recognized as one of the earliest English sporting artists. He was the son of a wealthy goldsmith and diamond merchant who supplied the plate for racing trophies. His father was also an amateur artist and a member of the Virtuosi Club of St. Luke, a gentleman's club for artists and art lovers. The young Seymour had no formal art instruction but he learnt to draw by studying the pictures and prints in his father's collection. At an early age he was introduced to some of the leading artists of the day, but at the same time he was encouraged to develop a love of the track, which eventually lead to his financial ruin. Seymour was passionate about racing and in addition to drawing and painting them he is believed to have owned racehorses himself. With his prolific output and superior talents he quickly established himself as a successful sporting artist, counting among his patrons Sir William Jolliffe, and the 6th Duke of Sommerset. This wonderful print is part of a series of hunting scenes executed by Burford after Seymour and reissued by Sayer in 1787. As with many sporting prints published by Sayer, he has included a French title with the obvious intention of marketing this extremely attractive print to a European audience. James Seymour was one of the first true sporting artists in Britain; he was considered one of the most eminent horse painters of the age and this beautiful mezzotint by Burford is a testimony to his talent.

        Relacion historica de la vida y apostolicas tareas del venerable Padre Fray Junípero Serra, y de las misiones que fundó en la California Septentrional

      Felipe de Zúñiga y Ontiveros, Mexico City 1787 - [28]+344 pages with facsimile plate and map laid in. Octavo )8" x 6") bound in contemporary vellum. First edition, first issue with "PRO" catchword at end of index. Francisco Palou (1723¿1789) was a Franciscan missionary, administrator, and historian on the Baja California peninsula and in Alta California. Father Palou made significant contributions to the Alta California and Baja California mission systems. Along with his mentor, Junipero Serra, Palou worked to build numerous missions throughout Alta and Baja California, many structures of which still stand today. A member of the Franciscan Order, Palou became "Presidente" of the missions in Baja California, and later of missions of Alta California. Palou's work in the Spanish mission system spans from his early twenties to his death at the age of 66. Junípero Serra Ferrer, O.F.M (November 24, 1713-August 28, 1784) was a Spanish Franciscan friar who founded a mission in Baja California and the first nine of 21 Spanish missions in California from San Diego to San Francisco, which at the time were in Alta California of the Las Californias Province in New Spain. He began in San Diego on July 16, 1769, and established his headquarters near Monterey, California, at Mission San Carlos Borromeo de Carmelo. The missions were primarily designed to convert the natives. Other aims were to integrate the neophytes into Spanish society, and to train them to take over ownership and management of the land. As head of the order in California, Serra not only dealt with church officials, but also with Spanish officials in Mexico City and with the local military officers who commanded the nearby presidios (garrisons). Condition: Minor wear to vellum, lacking folding map and portrait plate (facsimiles laid in), remnants of original map at back, minimal foxing, bottom tie torn else a very good copy.

        oeuvres de M. l'abbé Spallanzani

      Chez Pierre Duplain 1787 - - Chez Pierre Duplain, A Pavie &se trouve à Paris 1787, 3 tomes en 3 Vol. in-8 (12x20cm), relié. - Première édition collective, réunissant Opuscules de physique animale et végétale et Expériences pour servir à l'histoire de la génération des animaux et des plantes ; avec une ébauche de l'histoire des êtres organisés avant leur fécondation par Jean Sennebier. traduction par Jean Sennebier. Le troisième volume : Expériences,etc, porte l'adresse de Barthélémy Chirol à Genève à la même date de 1787 (même adresse que pour l'originale parue en 1785). Edition illustrée de 9 planches dépliantes in fine, 3 dans le premier volume et 6 dans le troisième. Reliure en plein veau raciné d'époque. Dos lisse orné de plusieurs fers (gerbe de blé, étoiles) et de roulettes grecques. pièce de titre en maroquin rouge et de tomaison en maroquin vert (tomaison en queue). Triple filet d'encadrement sur les plats. Larges épidermures sur les plats. Légers défauts sur les dos. Beaux exemplaires, en outre parfaitement frais. Réunion des plus importantes oeuvres de ce grand biologiste que fut Spallanzani, remarquable non seulement pour ses hypothèses, mais pour son imagination en terme de méthode expérimentale. Les opuscules contiennent les Expériences sur la digestion, qui ne se trouvent pas dans l'originale, dans lesquelles Spallanzani démontre l'importance des sucs gastriques dans le processus digestif. Il démontrera également que la théorie de la génération spontanée est fausse, découvre le secret de la fécondation entre un spermatozoïde et une ovule, celui de la régénération chez certains animaux ; il réalisera la première insémination artificielle chez une chienne. On lui doit ainsi de nombreuses avancées dans les sciences, dont les effets ne se feront ressentir que bien plus tard, mais surtout il marque son époque par sa rigueur scientifique et ses protocoles de démonstration qui pointe une inventivité et une clairvoyance qui semblent inépuisables.

        The Cabinet of Genius

      London: for C. Taylor. Leather Bound. Fair. 1787, 1785. 2 vols. Each section individually paginated. 21 cm. Contains 80 plates. Full leather, corners bumped, hinges coming loose. Front board off. Some plates in first section of volume one stained at top, some foxing in both volumes, some tissue guards loose. Having checked several bibliographical listings of this item, it seems that the publisher collated this series in whatever fashion he fancied that day. No two volumes seem to be assembled in the same order (see the copy in the National Library for instance). The second volume of this set was separately issued in 1785, but is only listed as such in 1 library's holdings. Otherwise, the Cabinet of Genius is generally listed as being published 1787-1790. There are 80 plates in this set, but there is one set catalogued with up to 95 plates. However, there are no missing pieces, so it seems to have been assembled as such. Whatever the reason, this is still a lovely set, with very attractive stipple-engraved plates in sepia, and works by many popular authors of the day. There are 28 articles in volume 1, and 23 articles in volume 2. Charles Taylor was an engraver, printseller and bookseller, whose father and brother, both named Isaac, were also engravers. Taylor apprenticed with his father and studied under the renowned stipple engraver Francesco Bartolozzi. He visited Paris and on his return engraved plates after Robert Smirke and Angelica Kauffmann. During his 20s, he exhibited with the Society of Artists. Taylor became well known as an engraver of stipple prints, publishing many in book form, such as the Cabinet of Genius. He produced various illustrated works between 1783 and 1793 and works on drawing and other subjects from 1797 to 1819. His major project was the revision of Calmet's Dictionary of the Bible published anonymously in 1797 and reaching its 4th edition in 1824. (The London book trades 1775-1800 a preliminary checklist of members.). -- "Containing Frontispieces and Characters adapted to the most Popular Poems, &c. with the Poems &c at large. + Picturesque Miscellanies: Being A Series of Engravings. comprizing a coious Variety of Interesting Subjects.

        To the Right Honourable Francis Godolphin Marquis of Caermarthen, Baron Osborne &c. &c. This View of Hanover Square, from a Drawing, in his Possession, Is with great respect inscribed by His Lordships obedient and obliged Servants, Rob[er]t Pollard & Fra[nci]s Jukes.

      London R. Pollard Braynes Row Spa Fields & F. Jukes Howland Street December 1st 1787 - Engraved view of Hanover Square, with aquatint. Dimensions: 490 by 630mm. (19.25 by 24.75 inches). A fine view of Hanover Square engraved by Robert Pollard and Francais Jukes, after a painting by Edward Dayes. Trained at the Royal Academy in London, Edward Dayes was an English painter, draughtsman and printmaker. He is best known for his topographical watercolors, which he made for publications in the 1790s. However, he also produced drawings, oil paintings, etchings and aquatints ranging from large-scale history paintings to miniatures. Dayes was trained by his father in engraving and studied in the schools of the Royal Academy, where he began to exhibit in 1786, continuing to participate in exhibitions until his death. He became an exhibitor at the Society of British Artists and was elected a member in 1830. His mezzotints were highly esteemed, and he made engravings after the works of prominent contemporaries including Joshua Reynolds and J.M.W. Turner. Robert Pollard and Francis Jukes were British engravers who produced many prints together, with Pollard doing the etching and Jukes the aquatinting, sometimes after Pollard's own designs. Pollard began as a painter of landscapes and marine subjects, and went to London where he became an engraver to the book trade. He was established as a publisher by 1779, issuing a wide range of decorative, patriotic and topographical prints. He made a number of fine line engravings after paintings by Robert Smirke. Jukes chiefly produced topographical prints in engraving, etching and, most notably aquatint, at which he was particularly skilled.
