        PROCES-VERBAL des séances de l'Assemblée provinciale du Berri tenue à Bourges, octobre 1786.

      A Bourges, chez Christo et à Paris chez Née de la Rochelle 1787 In-4° broché en couverture d'attente de l'époque, très bel exemplaire non rogné, (2), 48, 262 pp. - - - of the proceedings of the very first Assemblée Provinciale, as planned by Turgot and created by Necker. The distinction between the three orders was practically neglected and the voting was by call. This Assemblée was, together with the one of Haute-Guienne, the only one to survive until the revolution. During the years of its existence, the Assemblée made important decisions: the corvée was abolished and in this respect Berri became the example for all other provinces; improvement of waterways, extensively dealt with in the proceedings, was promoted because of the high costs of transport by land; the new doctrine of Turgot of 'liberté du travail' was adopted. Important document as the Berry was a sort of experiment for the futur provincial assemblies. In these minutes one finds essais on agriculture, industry, various taxes in use, the Ponts et Chaussees, the future construction of the canal and its navigation Très bon couverture souple Edition originale

        Good autograph letter signed to "My dear Lord" [most likely the Earl of Wigtown], 3-sides 4to:

      "Many many thanks for the very kind favour of your letter and the paper enclosed. This is the first letter I have been able to open since my being here, the gout having very unfairly attacked my right hand, which has been very painful indeed, but I hope the waters they have made me drink will enable me to leave this place the first week in feby as I believe that will be time enough to begin the attack about the Eustatius papers and the noble Lord who from a real sense of Honour stood forth to support me, is now here and will be in town about the time I propose, he persists in the opinion he gave in the House and will go through with it - tis hard at my time of life I am forced to stand forth and complain of a Minister who has such a weight and such support as the Marquis - but what must be, must be. Party I am not of, but the Party of my King & Country and nothing but the base treatment I have met with, and the Cruel and unjust sentence of a Privy Council, could have made appear an accuser in a House of Parliament, and let my Country know the injuries I have suffered - with them I leave it, and whatever they may determine in this affair, it will be my duty to acquiesce .I have received a pamphlet, from the Author of a paper which I hear makes a great noise, I could wish they would let me alone, and let me pass the remainder of my life, in ease, far from the noise of the World and from Envy and Malice…….". Bath, Jan'y 26th 1787. *Rodney had taken the Dutch island of St. Eustatius in the West Indies in 1781 but much of the booty seized, often belonging to British merchants, was lost to the French when the homeward bound convoy in which it was shipped was intercepted by La Motte Picquet in the western approaches. Such fortune as did escape La Motte Picquet was to drain away from Rodney in the years after the war as he lost many of the cases brought against him in the high court by the merchants seeking compensation for their lost cargoes. Claims appeared to an amount exceeding the whole of the captured property and, in settling them, Rodney 'died in honourable poverty'. [see O.D.N.B.]

        Tragedie. Seconda edizione, riveduta dall'autore, e accresciuta.

      Parigi, Da' Torchj di Didot Maggiore, 1787 - 1789.6 voll. in-8° (225x148mm), pp. CXX, 279, (3); 383, (3); 419, (3); 441, (3); 425, (3); (8) 272, (4) di errata e avviso al lettore; bella legatura in piena pelle marmorizzata marrone con titolo e segnatura di volume in oro su doppio tassello bicromo, uno rosso e uno verde, e fregi e filetti in oro ai dorsi. Segnacoli in seta. Unghie decorate in oro, sguardie marmorizzate policrome. Dedica a stampa di Alfieri a George Washington, salutato come liberatore dei popoli. Qualche lieve fioritura. Firme antiche di possesso. Freschissimo esemplare. Pregiata edizione del corpus tragico alfieriano curato personalmente dall'Autore a Parigi. L'Alfieri era assai fiero della riuscita di questa edizione, di mirabile nitore tipografico, a differenza della prima, impressa dal Pazzini di Siena nel 1783. Le tragedie del quinto volume sono quelle inedite (Bruto Primo, Mirra, Bruto Secondo); il secondo vol. reca la dicitura editoriale "volume di scarto" e non sempre si trova unito ai precedenti; tale volume contiene le tragedie Filippo, Polinice, Antigone, stampate nel 1787 ed eliminate dal primo volume. In varii esemplari del primo vol. figura un ritratto di Alfieri inciso dal Morghen da invenzione del Fabre, ma, come avverte il Bustico, "non tutti però gli esemplari hanno di fronte detto ritratto". Bustico, pp. 4-5: "Edizione di Crusca.. Di questa edizione ci parla l'Alfieri stesso nella Vita (Cap. XVII) e di essa si compiaceva: vi ha di essa un sesto volume, così detto di scarto, di cui diamo preciso ragguaglio, pur considerandolo parte di questa edizione". Graesse, I, 74. Brunet, I, 74. Gamba, 2527. Poggiali, p. 96: "Sceltissima". Per far di bianca carta carta nera. Prime edizioni e cimeli alfieriani, pp. 48-63.

        Della filosofia della storia. Libri tre dell'Abate Aurelio De' Giorgi Bertola patrizio riminese....

      Stamperia di G. Bolzani 1787 In 8, pp. (8) + 412 + (4). Cart. coeva con rinforzo al d. Bordi intonsi. Edizione originale non comune di uno dei saggi più importante di questo scrittore riminese, attento viaggiatore, e studioso di estetica. Questo del Bertola fu il primo libro che in Italia porto' titolo di filosofia della storia; libro e titolo poco esplorati dalla tradizionale letteratura, eppure rappresentativi di un pensiero che merita di essere compreso in se' e per se', considerato l'ancoraggio ad alcune delle fondamentali esperienze culturali del tempo: il confronto critico con la storiografia illuministica e i modelli di 'storia filosofica' di Montesquieu e Voltaire, di Condillac e Gibbon; l'adesione al concetto di 'civilta' nell'indagine sulle 'cagioni', i 'mezzi' e gli 'effetti' del corso storico; il ritorno all'antico e l'analisi delle cause fisiche e morali della 'floridezza' e della 'decadenza' delle nazioni; la fortuna dell'esperienza massonica e la problematica conciliazione del principio 'ermetico' della ciclicita' della storia con la teoria illuministica del progresso. In sostanza l'autore riminese credeva, sbagliandosi, essere ormai finite le grandi rivoluzioni, e che i cambiamenti sarebbero avvenuti attraverso graduali trasformazioni. ITA

Niebuhr deltog i den danska expeditionen till främre orienten som ägde rum 1761-67 och var dess astronom och kartograf. Linnelärjungen Peter Forsskål var expeditionens botaniker. Den splittrades av inre stridigheter, framförallt riktade mot filologen F. C. von Haven som t.o.m. beskylldes för mordförsök. Både Forsskål och von Haven avled i nuvarande Jemen under våren 1763 och Carsten Niebuhr var till slut den ende som överlevde expeditionen. Forsskåls manuskript och samlingar skickades till Köpenhamn där de efter flera år togs om hand, redigerades och utgavs av Niebuhr i tre separata arbeten. Niebuhrs egen resebeskrivning "Reisebeschreibung nach Arabien und anderen umliegenden Ländern", efter vilken detta är en bearbetad översättning, utgavs första gången, på tyska, i Köpenhamn 1774-78 i två delar. En tredje del utkom först 1834. Hans första skildring från expeditionen "Beschreibung von Arabien" utkom 1772. Ödmann nämner båda arbetena i förordet, men slår sig mest för sitt svenska bröst och framhåller Forsskåls resultat och beskrivningar som expeditionens egentliga behållning

        Sjö-tactique jemte dag-signaler för en örlogs-flotta.

      Sthlm, Kongl. tryckeriet, 1787. Folio. (4),204 s. & 1 utvikbar tryckt tabell. Med en graverad vinjett på titelbladet och illustrationer i texten. Samtida ganska nött och lite fläckigt hfrbd med upphöjda bind och rödstänkta snitt. Ryggen med ytliga sprickor, några maskhål och defekt nederst. Pärmarna med fint klistermarmorerat papper som ser ut som stiliserat tågvirke. En stor samtida handskriven titeletikett på främre pärmen. Inlagan ngt svag i häftningen på sina håll. Några understrykningar i rött bläck. Mindre fuktfläckar dyker upp här och där i den övre marginalen. En smutsfläck i texten på s. 25 och ett litet hål på s. 107. Revor längst ned i den inre marginalen från s. 193 till slutet. Sista bladet ganska brunflammigt. Med Lorentz Leopold von Horns lilla vapenstpl överst på titelbladet.. Under det nordamerikanska frihetskriget hade ett stort antal svenska sjöofficerare tjänstgjort i den franska flottan. De metoder för krigföringen till sjöss, som tillämpats under de i taktiskt avseende banbrytande engelsk-franska sjöslagen i Västindien, gjorde stort intryck på de hemvändande sjöofficerarna. Gyllenskepp hade personliga erfarenheter ifrån dessa slag och gjorde en översättning av fransmännens evolutionsbok efter ett nytt system fastställt några år tidigare. Denna "Sjö-tactique" blev också antagen för svenska flottan i god tid före krigsutbrottet 1788. Av detta följde mindre tvång i valet av taktiska rörelser och följaktligen flera och enklare utvägar att vinna ett och samma ändamål. Genombrytningar och dubbleringar var numera inte tabu för initiativkraftiga befälhavare, och vidare drog man sig inte längre för att engagera motståndaren, även om ordningen inom flottan till äventyrs inte skulle vara rättvänd. Salomon Gyllenskepp (1754-89) var kapten vid amiralitetet och dog under fångenskap i staden Misjaehovsk i Ryssland. Lorentz Leopold von Horn (1836-92) deltog i fransk tjänst i kriget i Kina 1860 och i Indokina 1861 och blev i svensk tjänst kommendörkapten av första graden 1889. Han publicerade "Officerare och civile tjenstemän kommenderade ombord å örlogsfartyg från Carlskrona station åren 1825-85" 1889

        Ueber W. Shakspeare

      bey Drell Gessner Fssli und Comp.Zurich: bey Drell, Gessner, FŸssli und Comp., 1787 First edition. Contemporary half calf, spine gilt. . Octavo. Minor rubbing. A fine copy. Very scarce. The first full-fledged German study of Shakespeare. Eschenburg was a prominent critic and literary historian who is particularly remembered for his efforts to familiarize his countrymen with English literature. He published translations of John Brown, Daniel Webb, Charles Burney, Joseph Priestley, and Richard Hurd, but his most notable achievement was the first full translation, in prose, of Shakespeare's plays, published in thirteen volumes from 1775 to 1782. The present very substantial work has long chapters on Shakespeare's life, his contemporaries, the theaters and actors of the period, etc., as well as analysis of individual plays, and the sonnets and other poems.

        Unkenneling the Fox-Hounds. L'acher la Meute

      London: Published by Robt. Sayer, 53 Fleet Street, May 22, 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. 9 3/4 x 13 3/4 inches. 11 3/4 x 19 1/8 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.

        The Soliloquy

      London: Published by W. Dickinson, Bond Street, Oct. 1, 1787. Stipple with hand-colour. Printed on early wove paper. In excellent condition with the exceptioin of a small mended tear in the right margin. Small paper loss in lower left corner. Image size: 11 1/8 x 7 1/2 inches. 12 9/16 x 8 1/4 inches. 16 11/16 x 11 7/8 inches. A wonderful print of a young woman contemplating love by the celebrated painter William Ward. William Ward is remembered as one of the most accomplished engravers of his day. He produced some of the most beautiful prints of the period, and his delicate engravings epitomize the style and sentiment of the age. Ward was primarily a mezzotint engraver but he also worked in stipple, executing hauntingly delicate prints that capture the soul and character of their subject. He studied under John Raphael Smith and quickly became one of his most distinguished pupils, incorporating his master's delicate technique into his own distinctive style. Along with his brother James, William was a regular exhibitor at the Royal Academy and soon earned the privilege of becoming mezzotint engraver to the prince regent.This delicate image recalls the style of Ward's master John Raphael Smith, who made a name for himself with his subtly suggestive portraits of women. Like many similar images produced by Smith, Ward's ambiguous picture depicts an ornately dressed young woman in a park setting. She sits by herself contemplating love, an emotion that is elucidated by the text underneath that makes reference to her denial of unchaste desires.

[i] (title), ii (blank), iii-iv (subscription list), v-x (foreword), xi-xviii (libretto), 112 pp. typeset music. With text in Danish and German. From the collection of the composer's grandson, the composer Karl Ernst Naumann (1832-1910), with his faint signature to title. Binding worn, rubbed and bumped; slightly lacking at spine. Some foxing and browning throughout. A very good copy overall. . First Edition. BUC p. 725. RISM N189. A Singspiel in three acts to a libretto by Charlotte Dorothea Biehl after Ranieri de' Calzabigi, Orpheus und Euridice was first performed in Copenhagen at the Royal Opera on January 31, 1786 to a libretto by C.D. Biehl after R. Calzabigi. "In 1785–6 [Naumann] was guest opera composer and conductor in Copenhagen, where he also reformed the Hofkapelle and improved the organization of the court opera. For Copenhagen he composed the tuneful and charming Danish opera Orpheus og Eurydike (1786)..." "Orpheus was intended to test Naumann’s abilities before King Christian VII offered him an official appointment at the Danish court. The music was praised for its colourful harmonies and sensitive orchestration; Naumann uses Gluckian accompanied recitative throughout, while the choruses and arias range from expressive through-composed scenes to short, perfunctory lied forms. The orchestra consisted of 40 players at the première and included trombones, for which the theatre had to be enlarged. Orpheus remained on the stage in Copenhagen until December 1791, and, in addition to a vocal score in German translation (Hamburg, 1787), excerpts appeared in the catalogues of Dresden publishers until 1800..." "...He was the most important personality in the music history of Dresden between Hasse and Weber, as well as one of the most esteemed musicians in Europe in the late 18th century and one of the last German composers to study in Italy."

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 Somerset. This wonderful print is listed in Sayer's 1775 catalogue, as being a pair to "Pointers and Hare". In this image, published in 1787, Sayer 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.
