1790. Book is in pretty decent condition for it's age (229 years). There is some discoloration and mild soiling present on the pages as you can see. Spine looks nice, no loose pages. Cover at very beginning stages of separation on both sides see photo # 12 as it is pretty much the same on both sides. I collect, buy, & sell photos & historical antiques. I went to a private pick to purchase some original Theodore Roosevelt photographs and collectibles. When I was there the woman stated that the book was actually part of Teddy's personal collection. As you know, Theodore Roosevelt was an avid speed reader with an extensive book collection. The woman said it was her father's book and she herself was in her 60's at the very least. She didn't know how he acquired the book, but with all the photos and collectibles I acquired on top of the room I went into was like a mini shrine to Teddy and the rough riders; along with the initials of T.R. on a book from 1790 I am pretty confident it was his book. I do not have any real provenance to prove it just going off of the collectibles I acquired, type of book, and age of book. Please do research, ask several questions, and if you need more information or photos please let me know prior to purchase. No returns. More photos sent upon request as I ran out of room. Thanks for Stopping By!

[Catholic Church. Calendarium (Diocese of Toleldo)]
Madrid, 1790. Peter Marin. Small 4to. 224 pp. Bound in near contemporary goatskin, gilt, on covers a flower tool has been impressed in gold to form a cross, in the outer edges a rope-work roll, at the corners the same flower tool, four raised bands on spine, in the compartments impressions in gold of the same flower tool; two pair of original catches and clasps affixed by nails (one nail no longer present), all edges gilt, around edges of the textblock are 11 impressions of a 6-pointed star. Minor wear to binding, text clean and crisp. Preserved in a cloth box. FEASTS AND FESTIVALS in Toledo. It was suggested to us that this book was bound in Columbia, South America, where it had been (beautifully) preserved located since Colonial times. Be that as it may, the front and back pastedowns consist of printed Spanish Revenue Stamped paper: "Quarenta Maravedis / Sello Quarto, Quarenta Maravedis, Ano de Mil y Ochocientos Siete" (1806). Such documents would have been valid for one year only in Spain, after which time the document was unusable in any official capacity, and therefore of no value except as scrap paper. Our binding must date ca. 1807-1810. The provenance suggests that the book originated in Granada: on the verso is the contemporary inscription "Fr[atre] Fran[cisc]o Illorales" (presumably of Illora, Granda). Of particular veneration in Toledo was Saint Ildefonsus (607-667), Bishop of Toledo, whose Feast is celebrated on 23 January. El Greco's portrait of him is in the Santuario de Nuestra Señora de la Caridad, Illescas, Toledo where it has been preserved, along with … [Click Below for Full Description]

GEORGE WASHINGTON
Newspaper. Gazette of the United States. September 11, 1790. New York, John Fenno. 4pp. The letter of the Masons to Washington, and Washington's letter of August 18, 1790[1] in response, printed in full on page 4. This issue also includes a piece on the "Character of Dr. Franklin." (p. 2, col. 1). "Being persuaded that a just application of the principles, on which the masonic fraternity is founded, must be promotive of private virtue and public prosperity, I shall always be happy to advance the interests of the Society, and to be considered by them a deserving Brother." Historical BackgroundEarly in his presidency, Washington received many messages from civic leaders, fraternal organizations such as the Masons, and the elders of the great diversity of religions throughout America. Each offered the incoming president congratulations, praise lauding his deeds in war, peace, and politics, prayers on behalf of their congregations, and more praise for what they were certain he would accomplish as president. Washington's responses to these addresses count among his most famous pronouncements, firmly establishing the liberty to practice one's own faith as a bedrock of the new Constitutional government.The Washington letters provide great examples of his very effective habit of incorporating the best thoughts or words from messages to him into his responses. One of his most celebrated quotes, for instance, proclaiming that the United States would give "to bigotry no sanction," was adopted by him from Moses Seixas's Newport Hebrew Congregation (Touro Synagogue) letter to Washington … [Click Below for Full Description]

This copy bound without the Lackington adverts issued with Volume I. "Cook earned his place in history by opening up the Pacific to western civilisation and by the foundation of British Australia. The world was given for the first time an essentially complete knowledge of the Pacific Ocean and Australia, and Cook proved once and for all that there was no great southern continent, as had always been believed. He also suggested the existence of Antarctic land in the southern ice ring, a fact which was not proved until the explorations of the nineteenth century. Cook was a brilliant navigator and hydrographer, an excellent administrator and planner, and probably the first sea captain to realise the importance of preserving the health and w … [Click Below for Full Description]

Ferdinando FAMBRINI (Attivo a Lucca nella seconda metà del XVIII sec.)
1790. Incisione di Ferdinando Fambrini che rappresenta piazza Garibaldi, al secolo Piazza del Ponte. A destra, sotto il margine inferiore della veduta, l'indicazione dell'incisore «Fambrini inci.». Sotto il titolo si leggono cinque rinvii toponomastici: «1 Casino de Nobili - 2 Le sette colonne - 3 Logge di Borgo - 4 Facciata della Chiesa di S.Michele 5 Lung'Arno». 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.

Johan Fredrik Martin (Stoccolma 1755 - ivi 1816)
1790. "Veduta della festa di Sant'Andrea ad Amalfi, tratta da un disegno di Luois Jean Desprez. Amalfi festeggia Sant'Andrea, patrono della città, ben due volte all'anno, una il 30 novembre, l'altra il 27 giugno nell'anniversario del miracolo che salvò la città di Amalfi dall'invasione del pirata Kair-Ad-Din detto Barbarossa nel 1544. Sant'Andrea è protettore dei pescatori di tutto il mondo, di pescivendoli e di tutti coloro che hanno a che fare con la pesca. Ai festeggiamenti del 30 novembre, partecipa tutta la popolazione, ed è in questa occasione che avviene il "miracolo di Sant'Andrea", per tanti versi molto simile al miracolo della liquefazione del sangue di San Gennaro. Probabile che il Desprez realizzi il disegno durante il suo viaggio in Italia, durante il quale descrive molto luoghi dell'Italia meridionale, poi base iconografica per il ""Voyage Pittoresque"" dell'abate Richard de Saint-Non. Incisione all'acquatinta ad inchiostro bistro, lievemente rifilata all'interno della linea marginale, piccole crepe di carta, per il resto in ottimo stato di conservazione. Rarissima."

1790. " EDIZIONE ORIGINALE, COLORITURA COEVA - Importante e decorativa mappa tratta dal ""Nuovo Atlante Geografico Universale delineato sulle ultime osservazioni"", edito a Roma dal 1792 fino al 1801, opera che la Calcografia Camerale commissionò al Cassini al fine di sostituire l'ormai obsoleto ""Mercurio Geografico"". Giovanni Maria Cassini, Chierico Regolare Somasco fu geografo e cartografo, ma anche intagliatore di architetture e prospettive - uno dei migliori discepoli di Giovanni Battista Piranesi - Cassini fu uno degli ultimi sferografi italiani del Settecento ed i suoi globi ebbero una notevole diffusione, come pure questo ""Nuovo Atlante Geografico"". Incisione in rame, coloritura coeva dei contorni, leggere bruniture, per il resto in ottimo stato di conservazione. L'Atlante del Cassini fu ristampato dalla Calcografia Camerale nel primo quarto del XIX secolo, prima del 1839. Solo gli esemplari di prima edizione come questo sono stampati su carta vergata coeva e sono colorati a mano in epoca. Le tirature del XIX secolo sono già su carta meccanica, priva di vergelle, e generalmente in bianco e nero." " L. Dufour - A.

An uncommon map, published in the 'Nuovo Atlante Geografico Universale', with a decorative title cartouche, by Giovanni Maria Cassini, a Somasco monk. He was geographer and cartographer but he was also good at engraving architectural items and perspectives - he was one of the best disciples Giovanni Battista Piranesi had. Moreover, Cassini was one of the last artists to engrave spheres in the XVIII century and his globes were quite famous and widespread, and realized the most important Italian Atlas of the XVIII century; his maps always bear a cartouche, extremely rich in colours and details.

Engraved frontispieces, 21 maps and 88 engraved plates. First edition of this extensive and richly illustrated work which collects geographical updates from various voyages, including Cook's final voyage of 1776 to 1780. Issued in 90 parts ("designed to be bound in one or in two volumes"), the work opens with a discussion of the Pacific islands, refocussing a predominantly Eurocentric view of world geography, before moving on to Asia, Africa, America, and closing with Europe (Forbes; Scott, p. 28). Volume One of the work features a striking allegorical frontispiece by Johann Heinrich Ramberg depicting Neptune raising Cook up to immortality. Ramberg's design "while celebrating Cook as a patron of geographical discoveries, also prefigures the submission of the world to the nascent British Empire, depicting the four corners of the world presenting Britannia with offerings in gratitude for bringing the benefits of civilization to the world" (Domercq).

The world was given for the first time an essentially complete knowledge of the Pacific Ocean and Australia, and Cook proved once and for all that there was no great southern continent, as had always been believed. He also suggested the existence of Antarctic land in the southern ice ring, a fact which was not proved until the explorations of the nineteenth century. Cook was a brilliant navigator and hydrographer, an excellent administrator and planner, and probably the first sea captain to realise the importance of preserving the health and well … [Click Below for Full Description]

Jacques Nicolas BELLIN (1703 - 1772)
1790. Carta nautica del Mediterraneo centrale. - le carte edite dal Depot de la Marine - Per contrastare lo strapotere navale della flotta inglese re Luigi XIV comprese la necessita di dotare le sue navi di carte nautiche in grado di renderle competitive con la marina antagonista. Un primo tentativo si ebbe con il Neptune Francais del 1693, ma solo agli inizi del diciottesimo secolo iniziò una grande campagna di rilievo delle coste del Mediterraneo e di altri mari, che portò alla realizzazione di numerose mappe, raccolte nel Dépot des Cartes et Planes de la Marine del 1720. Tuttavia il fondatore dell'idrografia francese può essere considerato a tutti gli effetti Jacques Nicolas Bellin (1703-1772) che per oltre cinquant'anni fu al servizio della Marina quale ingegnere e cartografo, tanto che gli venne assegnato il titolo quale primo "Ingegnere Idrografo della Marina" e quindi addirittura quello di "Idrografo Reale". Durante il suo servizio gli furono commissionati i rilievi delle coste francesi prima e successivamente quelle di praticamente tutto il mondo conosciuto. La sua produzione fu immensa e le sue carte nautiche, di grande qualità, apparvero in più edizioni fino oltre la fine del diciottesimo secolo. Questo grande fondo cartografico diede vita alla produzione ed alla vendita di carte navali, prima basate su quelle del Bellin, successivamente ampliate e migliorate da altri ingegneri di marina, sia francesi che non. Le carte nautiche venivano vendute separatamente e recavano tutte l'inconfondibile timbro con l'ancora e le corone (quando regnava la monarchia) del Depot G … [Click Below for Full Description]

Georg Abraham HACKERT (Prenzlau, 1755; Firenze, 1805)
1790. "Splendida veduta incisa e pubblicata da Georg Abraham Hackert, sulla base di un dipinto originale di suo fratello Jacob Philipp Hackert , che era pittore di corte di Ferdinando IV , re delle Due Sicilie. Probabilmente dipinto nel 1789 , raffigura una scena di vita quotidiana nel porto di Gaeta a cui partecipano tutti gli strati della società, a partire dalle donne contadine a piedi nudi e dagli uomini barcaioli alle donne di classe superiore che indossano parrucche e un uomo in una redingote che conversano all'ombra del muro di pietra. Nella didascalia si afferma che il soggetto e si basa su un quadro della ""Raccolta dei Porti delle Due Sicilie"" dipinta da Jacob Hackert per il re Ferdinando IV. Non si sa esattamente quanti dipinti facessero parte di questa "" raccolta "", ma uno studioso, Sergio Attanasio, ha condotto di recente una ricerca sull'argomento, identificando ache il dipinto fonte per questa incisione, oggi a Caserta. Secondo Attanasio , nel 1799, i membri dell'esercito francese sono entrati nello studio dell'incisore Georg Hackert a Palazzo Cellamare sottraendo 17 vedute del regno che suo fratello Jacob Hackert, aveva dipinto tra 1788 e il 1794. Incisione in rame in ottime condizioni. Molto rara." Beatiful view engraved and published by Georg Abraham Hackert, after the original painting by his brother Jacob Philipp Hackert, then serving as court painter to Ferdinand IV, king of both Naples and Sicily.
