        View of Venice]. Area S. Rocchi cum ejusdem Templo et Schola (plate no V).

      Venice: c 1790 - Engraving after drawings by Canaletto. Overall dimensions 55.5cm by 40.5cm. "Self-styled as painter, architect, and engraver, Visentini enjoyed a long career in Venice where he was connected to the Academia and to the artistic and publishing circle centred around Consul Joseph Smith. Visentini's etchings are distinguished in the confidence and authority of their perspectival projection and etched line. Visentini's buildings seldom sag and never "sink" under their own weight into the water of the canals as they occasionally might in the work of Carlevaris and Mariechi. Canaletto's compositions are quite various and are refreshingly dramatic in the contrast between the large foreground buildings and the smaller ones in the receding perspective. These views were crucial to forming the image of Venice in the mind of its visitors" (Millard).

        A Narrative of the Mutiny, on board His Majesty's Ship Bounty; and the subsequent voyage of part of the crew, in the ship's boat, from Tofoa, one of the Friendly Islands, to Timor, a Dutch settlement in the East Indies.

Bligh's Narrative (1790) is his own account of the famous mutiny on the Bounty, issued in haste, fully two years before his official account of the whole voyage, in an effort to preserve his reputation. Indeed, criticism of him was leavened by his astonishing account of his 3500 mile, two-month journey across the Pacific with his eighteen still-loyal crewmen in a twenty-three-foot open launch (only one life was lost).

        Manuscript Map of the Austrian and Belgian Military Camps South of Namur during the Brabant Revolution, 1790.

      late 18th century - Manuscript map (55 x 42,3 cm) in black and brown ink with colour for rivers, roads, tents, castles, trees, weapons and cities, handwritten caption in French the lower right corner reading "Nota: The red tents indicate the places where the Austrians are stationed. The blue ones show the camps of the Belgiums [sic] troops. B. is for battery. In Mounia and in Bouvinne there is a 36-pound cannon", Honig watermark with large coat of arms; occasional spotting, traces of folds, small hole in the middle, remnants of mounting paper at the back, back a bit soiled. A lovely and figurative manuscript map for a most decisive event of European history, the Brabant Revolution. In 1789, inspired by the coeval French Revolution, an armed insurrection took place in the Austrian Low Countries (modern-day Belgium) against Emperor Joseph II and the Holy Roman Empire. This upheaval, however, stood in contrast with the French one as Belgians were fighting for a return to a more conservative society, as they strongly disagreed with Joseph II's liberal reforms. The Revolution led to the creation, in January 1790, of the United Belgian States. Yet it took the Habsburgs less than a year to put an end to this short-lived confederation of the Southern Low Countires, as the Austrian armies quickly defeated the revolt by regaining the rebel territories one by one. The city of Namur and the battles that took place in the region in autumn 1790 are crucial in the Austrian reconquest. The present map depicts the military camps south of Namur, down to Dinant and Charlemont. The Belgian "patriots" on the one side, and the Austrian positions on the other side are shown with great precision. In the former camp we can see the "Camp of the Lorangois" [sic], of the "patriots in Bouvinne", of the "Petit Givet" which are all positioned on the Western side of the Meuse, as opposed to the imperial troops located on the Eastern riverside and divided into the camps of Dinant, Harbichaux, Falmagne, Mainil St Blaise and Malaise. The opposition took a dramatic turn in favour of the imperial armies on 22 September 1790 at the battle of Falmagne, just north of Charlemont, a town whose strategic position clearly appears on the map. A month after this victory, the Austrian troops took the city of Namur, forcing the province of Namur to recognize the authority of the emperor. Two days later, the province of West Flanders followed suit, and by December the entire territory was in imperial hands again.

GODRON E. MESTLER'S PERSONAL COLLECTION COPY . . . WITH HIS PENNED NOTES LOOSELY LAID IN . . WITH MESTLER'S HAND-WRITTEN NOTE SLIPS: This is Mestler's personal collection copy, with his hand-written notes. These were used as the basis for entries in his historic bibliography: A GALAXY OF OLD JAPANESE MEDICAL BOOKS WITH MISCELLANEOUS NOTES ON EARLY MEDICINE IN JAPAN. . *** MESTLER'S HAND-WRITTEN NOTES: This set contains penned notes on slips of paper loosely inserted at places of interest and fascination to Mestler. The notes point out the various part of anatomy described. Many of these notes were copied verbatim into the GALAXY. . MESTLER'S HANDWRITTEN NOTES: . This is the exact copy Mestler used to catalog and compile the entry in his historic GALAXY. It contains a good number of paper slips, with his hand-written notes, comments, bibliographical notes and indications of important illustrations found in this amazing resource. There is also a small card laid in with the name of this title, used by Mestler for display and description purpose. He also used this and other Japanese medical books as examples for lectures while teaching anatomy at S.U.N.Y. College of Medicine at New York City, Brooklyn. . *** *** *** . . END OF THE MESTLER PERSONAL COLLECTION COPY . . THE BELOW APPLIES TO ALL COPIES . . *** THE AUTHOR: Tamba Gentoku [1732-1801] also known as Taki or Rankei] was a eminent court physician and famous in the annals of Japanese medicine. He was directed by Imperial auspices to compile this work by Shogun Iyeharu. The goal was the promulgation of medical knowledge among the common people, describing how to remedy various kinds without the help of a physician. . THE AUTHOR'S ALTERNATE OR "STUDIO" NAMES: Tamba also known as Taki Angen [or Rankei], Genki or as Motonori. He was a descendant of the famous Tamba medical family, members who had been acknowledged medical practitioners for many generations. More details in Whitney & GALAXY, pp.303,166. . *** CHINESE ORIGIN OF THE BOOK: The illustrations are of Chinese in their traditional period robes, Tamba adapted the text into Japanese. The work covers how to do prognosis, treatment and prescribing of medicine. This work is also an early example of the use of moxa [artemisia vulgaris latifolia] or the tomentum [kind of pollen like hairs] brushed off the leaves of Yomogi a cauterizing herb known as Artemisia indica. It also lists famous 'points' for application of moxa, the "Sanri" with detailed directions telling how to "know" the location of the acupuncture points [Qi]. . * FAMOUS ILLUSTRATIONS: Two of its illustrations are also found in Huard p.83 [see below] using yet another variant of the author's name of Rankei Taki, these were illustrations were copied out of vol.1, pp.4 & 5 showing facial manipulation. Other books have also freely used the illustrations found in this work. . Lavishly illustrated there are illustrations covering most every phase of emergency treatment. Excellent anatomical details, acupuncture meridians, 'spots' & channels illustrated. There are also a substantial group of botanical illustrations, citing the pharmacological use, parts of the plant to use and how to administer these to patients. . * SUBJECT OF THE TEXT: A good portion of the work is devoted to the details of what parts of the fruits, grasses, tree and nuts, leaves, bark, flowers, roots of plants to be used, and the method of making medicine, dosage is discussed. For example the lotus pod seed has been used for ages in Asia to assist in sleep. The use of seaweed to reduce cystic swelling, one good for erysipelas [Tandoku], and congenital syphilis [Taidoku] noted. Others uses for medicine made from fish, squid, shrimp, shell fish, conch, clams, bird parts & organs, insects, the land snail & many others indicated. . This work illustrates a large selection of pharmacopoeia with attention to which part of the plant & or animals are used in the treatment of illness and disease. . Pressure points used for acupressure, were also heated by the burning of moxa [artemisia vulgaris latifolia] on points or on the end of acupuncture needles to gain additional medicinal effect. . *** ACCUPRESSURE; The method of applying hand or finger pressure to points on the Fourteen Channels of the body are also noted. Problems with childbirth and the placenta removal noted, as well as treatment of young children noted. Among the many remedies are two unusual methods of attempting to revive a drowning victim. The first plate shows the victim slung over a water buffalo in an attempt to expel the water, the second shows a rescuer pumping his stomach with the palms of his hand, the last shows the victim being warmed by a fire [see scans on our web site]. The illustrations were also reproduced in Castiglioni as figure 40 on p.109, see below for more details. See also a good color representation of this found in Grmek: LA MEDECINE JAPONAISE as plate 10 [see below]. . * Problems with pregnancy, childbirth and the placenta removal noted, treatment of diseases of young children also noted. . * APPLICATION OF EMERGENCY MEDICAL PRACTICES: This work rendered a most valuable primary resource to people of two centuries ago, when doctors were few but illness and disasters many. It gave lay-people first hand knowledge of what plants could be use to make medicines and which techniques could be used in an emergency. Copious in nature, some 300 double folded leaves in all. It was the standard reference for the common people, written in easily understood Japanese, designed for the semi-literate as a home medical adviser. Remedies were based on adaptive use of things commonly found around the Japanese home, medicines compounded from ordinary plants and animals. It is also an important pharmacopoeia Japonica in terms of a list of what plants & animals were commonly available around Japan. With excellent botanical illustrations and explanations on the selection and use of plants & plant parts for treatment. . * CURIOUS NOTE: Per Prof Richard Rudolph [see below], she states on p.145: "Curiously, one of the manual's illustrations was later used in Arturo Castiglioni's STORIA DELLA MEDICINA." But she does not exactly cite just which illustration in Tamba, or which illustration in Castiglioni." She does illustrate Tamba's front cover and an illustration from his book. . * HOME MEDICAL ADVISER: This work was compiled at the command of the Shogun Iyeharu, before his death in 1786, for the promulgation of medical knowledge among the common people. This title can also be translated to mean "Wide Benevolence and Emergency Prescriptions." The work contains substantial information on how to remedy maladies of various kinds and how to meet emergencies like intoxications, injuries, accidents, without the help of a physician. The remedies were based on the adaptive use of things commonly found in the early Japanese home. Medicines are compounded from ordinary flowers, plants, trees, animals, including birds, mollusks, and fish.

Il parut du 19 juin 1789 au 1er octobre 1791. La collection complète comprend 815 numéros reliés en 26 volumes + 1 volume d'introduction, paru en 1790.Tourneux 10217 ; Martin et Walter, Journaux et almanachs 1200 ; Rétat, Les journaux de 1789, n° 149 ; Hatin, Biblio. historique et critique de la presse p. 114."Le titre de cette feuille dit bien ce qu'elle est : c'est une sorte de procès-verbal des séances des États Généraux ; ce n'est ni plus ni moins, et l'on y chercherait vainement d'autres détails, sur les événements et sur les hommes de l'époque, que ceux qui résultent des débats législatifs. Mais dans cette spécialité, si nous pouvons ainsi dire, et à cause même de cette spécialité, Le Point du Jour se recommande tout particulièrement à l'attention de l'historien. C'est une des feuilles, assurément, qui méritent le plus d'être consultées pour l'histoire de notre première Assemblée nationale : elle reproduit les séances de cette mémorable session non seulement avec vérité, non seulement avec une remarquable sagacité, mais encore avec un esprit de suite, une méthode et une étendue que l'on ne trouverait pas dans aucune autre, pas même toujours dans Le Moniteur. Ajoutons que le ton modéré, décent, qui y règne, est loin de faire présager le futur membre du Comité de salut public, "l'Anacréon de la guillotine"."

      LA PLAGE DE SCHEVELINGEN. II. VUEKopergravure vervaardigd rond 1790 door Abraham Jacobsz. Hulk naar een ontwerp van Jacques Fran?ois Swebach die op zijn beurt een schilderij van Adriaen van de Velde (1636 - 1672) natekende. Later met de hand gekleurd. Afm. (afbeelding) ca.: 23,5 x 29 cm (lijst) 47 x 53,5 cm.Adriaen van de Velde?s werken geven gewoonlijk voorstellingen uit het boeren leven weer, tevens was hij bekwaam kustlandschapschilder. Hij registreerde het losse, vrije leven van de boerenstanden in een tijd dat de hogere standen weinig om hen gaven en dat het godsdienstige leven afnam. Pieter Brueghel was hem daarin 100 jaar eerder reeds voorgegaan. Van de Velde geeft het stille boerenleven weer en vertelt het verhaal van hun dagelijks bestaan.Op dit tafereel zit een vissersfamilie voor een hut, men wacht op het terugkeren van de schepen. Kinderen spelen. Een jongen toont zijn vondst. Een koets met vierspan rijdt langs de branding.Prijs: ?650,- (incl. lijst, BTW margeregeling).

The law about the French Tricolor, the birth of the French flag. The royal, Paris edition. The Revolution of 1789 led to the need for a new national flag, that expresses the radical changes and reforms that were introduced. The first Tricolor was established by this decree of the National Assembly, that specified all the details of the flag, the material and the placement of it. It was originally a naval jack a maritime flag with an outer border blue at the hoist and red at the fly surrounded a white border that was around the tricolor, with the colors the reverse of what they are today, red at the hoist and blue to the fly. The order was reversed later, in 1794 and has remained in use ever since. Red and blue are the traditional colors of Paris and they were already popular in the city, worn as cockades during the Revolution while white "the ancient French color", the color of the Royal flag was added by Lafayette, to "nationalize" the design. The flag became one of the most influential flags in history, as the symbol of the Revolution, many nations adopted tricoloured flags in imitation of the French, replacing its colors with their own. A very important document of the Revolution. Number "113" in ink on title page. In fine condition. First edition. Imprint from colophon. With a woodcut headpiece above title.

        Elements of Moral Science.

      Edinburgh: printed for T. Cadell, and William Creech,, 1790-3. 2 volumes, octavo in half-sheets (210 x 128 mm). Contemporary polished tree calf, red morocco labels and roundels to spines, compartments ruled in gilt, edges sprinkled red. Armorial bookplate of Sir William Forbes of Pitsligo to front pastedowns. Signed (volume I) and inscribed (volume II) by the author to each title verso. Spine ends and corners bumped, small tear to volume I head of spine, extremities lightly worn and spines somewhat faded, a few minor chips to boards, occasional light foxing, upper corners of volume I leaf Dd3-4 and Ee3-4 torn, text unaffected, endpapers browned from turn-ins, a very good set. First edition, presentation copy, inscribed by the author to his friend and biographer Sir William Forbes of Pitsligo (1739–1806) on the verso of both title pages. Sir William Forbes, 6th Baronet Pitsligo (1739–1806) was a prominent Scottish banker, philanthropist, and writer, and long-time friend of James Beattie. He was the author of Beattie's biography, An Account of the Life and Writings of James Beattie (1806). He was also a friend of James Boswell (who characterized Forbes in his Journal of a Tour to the Hebrides as "a man of whom too much good cannot be said") and through him became a member of Samuel Johnson's literary dining club. James Beattie (1735–1803) was a significant figure of the Scottish Enlightenment, holding the chair of Professor of Moral Philosophy at the University of Aberdeen from 1760. In his philosophical works (such as An Essay on the Nature and Immutability of Truth, 1770, and Elements of Moral Science, 1790) he argued influentially for the idea of a "Common Sense" to counter the epistemological scepticism inculcated by Hume, and also against the institution of slavery. He was in addition well known for his poetry, in particular for The Minstrel (1771–4), which inspired the Wordsworth and the other Romantics.

Dit betreft een aquatint van Delft: “Entrance to Delft from Rotterdam” en “Capucin's funeral” te Eu in Normandië. De toegevoegde gravure toont een “arbor vitae” van de vroedvrouw A.C. Nadich: “Vang my, ik zal zoet zijn”. In de boom groeien kinderen die naar beneden vallen en opgevangen worden door vrouw Nadich. Ireland zag dit “reclamebord” aan de kant van de weg bij het dorp Rosendaal. De aquatinten zijn voor de tweede druk zwaar bijgewerkt: ze zijn wat sterker van druk (en daardoor mooier, maar minder contrastrijk). De wolkenluchten zijn geheel anders en tonen meer diepte. De datering is op iedere prent veranderd van 1790 in 1795."
