        Promenades ou Itineraire Des Jardins De Chantilly

      1791. MERIGOT, J. Promenades, ou Itinéraire des Jardins de Chantilly, orné d'un plan et de vingt Estampes qui représentent les principales vues, et gravées par Mérigot. [4], 60 pp. Illustrated with 20 full-page aquatints and 1 folding engraved plan of Chantilly. 8vo., 204 x 137 mm, bound in later French half morroco over contemporary boards. Paris: Desenne [et al.], 1791. |~||~||~| First Edition of Merigot's Promenades des Jardins de Chantilly, with twenty aquatints executed en mannier noire. These fine aquatint engravings are of very high quality and illustrate one of the most important projects ever attempted by André Le Nôtre. Berrall writes that: "Chantilly offered Le Nôtre his greatest problem. Because of the shape of the water surrounding the château his formula of a central axis in line with the dwelling and enclosed with trees could not be followed. Instead he designed a huge terrace with an impressive vista at one side of the château and gave it a monumental staircase that led down to the parterre. Because of the close proximity of a river and many natural springs there was no difficulty in obtaining water, which Le Nôtre made the central theme. With the rhythmic repetition of round basins and a channeled river crossing the gardens, the château is mirrored from all angles and seems to float on its surroundings. Woods were planned on either side of the parterre, and cascades, a pavilion, a menagerie, a hunting lodge, and a chapel were built in the park. Chantilly, one of Le Nôtre's earlier achievements, was also one of his finest; he himself always considered it one of his best" (The Garden: An Illustrated History p. 203). Slight soiling here and there, but overall a good copy of a scarce book. Berlin Katalog 3447. Cohen-De Ricci 439. Lewine 213. Rahir 443. De Ganay 130. Hunt 718. Prideaux, pp. 207-8 & 366.

        Beskrivelse over Danske Mynter og Medailler. I Den Kongelige Samling

      N. Møller og Sön, Copenhagen, Denmark 1791 - Description of Danish Coins and Medals, the Royal Collection. Two volumes. First volume with title page dated 1791, Dansk Medailler og Mynter det Kongelige Kabinet. Second volume continues with part of the 1791 text and plates and also contains [in whole or in part] the addendum of 1794, Tillaeg til Beskrivelsen over Dansk Mynter og Medailler, I den Kongelige Samling. Edited by Georg Nielsen, Frederik Adam Müller and others. This substantial work was printed in antiqua by the Danish printer Nicolaus Møller. The large vignettes of the title page and of the introduction [Indledning] page of the first volume were engraved (and possibly drawn) by F.L. Bradt. The title page, in neo-classic style, and the part-title pages were engraved by G. Fehrenholtz. Elephant folio. 17 x 12 inches (424 x 289 mm). LXIV, 240; [ii], 619-812, [2] pages, with 91 full-page engraved plates in the first volume and with 118 full-page engraved plates in the second volume. According to some sources, but unconfirmed, there were 344 engraved plates in the complete three-volume edition, i.e., the two-volume set issued in 1791 and the supplement issued in 1794; missing in this copy offered for sale are, presumably, text pages 241-618 and corresponding plates for C. IV, F. III and C. V. Rebound. Bindings appear to be circa 1940s or 50s. Rust colored buckram binding, with spines lettered in gilt. Moderately bumped spine heads and tails and corners. As to each volume there is a crack between two gatherings [between the half title page and the title page of the first volume and between pages 600 and 641 of the second volume]. More a cosmetic issue than a structural issue, as the text blocks remain firmly attached to the bindings. Strong and fairly thick paper, not brittle or fragile. Occasional light spotting to the pages and plates, much less than one might expect in volumes of this age, and with most plates free of any spotting or soiling. First and only edition of the principal work on Danish numismatics. This monumental work is illustrated with finely engraved plates based on the massive collections of historical coins and medallions held in the Danish Royal Collection. Featured are coins and medallions of kings of the Oldenburg line, beginning with Christian I and ending with Christian VII, who was on the throne at the time of publication of this book. Featured are Christian I, Hans, C. II, Frederick I, C. III, and F. II. Largely absent are C. IV, F. III and C. V. [except for Plate III, Vol. II, Section "Samling af Medailler over Kongerne af den Oldenborgske Stamme" and Plates I-III, Vol. II, "Sigiller"] Continuing with F. IV, C. VI, F. V, and C. VII. The edition of 1791 consisted of two volumes: Text-volume: LXIV, 819, (4) pp. Plate-volume: engraved title page, 17 engraved part-titles and 319 (all) full page engraved plates. The edition of 1794 was an addendum or supplement and consisted of title page [2] 36 pages of text and, apparently, up to 25 full page plates. Bibliotheca Danica II:587. Slipped in is a lovely copy of the catalog, Ancient, English and Foreign Coins and Medallions, Christie's London, December 8, 1987, in which a similar copy of this book was listed at Lot 316. Size: Elephant Folio - over 15" - 23" tall [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        An Historical Disquisition concerning the Knowledge which the Ancients had of India; and the Progress of Trade with that Country prior to the Discovery of the Passage to it by the Cape of Good Hope

      London: A. Strathan and T. Cadell, 1791. Quarto, with two large folding maps; expertly rebacked in polished calf with gilt lettered label, original marbled boards retained, an attractive copy. Ancient seafaring contact between India and the West? Carefully researched history of contact between Europe and India, by Scottish parson and historian William Robertson 1721-1793. With both sons deployed in India, and a score of knowledgeable friends including the geographer James Rennell and Robert Orme; Robertson carefully collated all extant sources from the ancient Near East and classical literature through to the sixteenth century. Rennell is famously remembered for his treatise on the geographical knowledge of Herodotus, and is credited as the inspiration for this book.Core sections provide curious insights into navigation and seafaring in the ancient world. Robertson writes 'in order to give an accurate idea of the imperfection both of the theory and practice of navigation among the ancients, and to explain with scientific precision, the manner in which they ascertained the position of places, and calculated their latitude and longitude... my ingenious and respectable colleague, Mr. Playfair, Professor of Mathematics, has supplied.' Playfair also constructed the two maps; the first is based on Ptolemy, while the second is modern (both span the vast distance from Arabia to Sumatra).

        Icones stirpium rariorum descriptionibus illustratae

      London: William Bulmer, 1791. Broadsheet. (21 3/4 x 17 1/4 inches). [6], 20pp. 10 hand-coloured engravings by and after Salisbury, being watercolour and gouache over thin etched line. Extra-illustrated with a duplicate of plate nine. Modern half black morocco over green cloth covered boards, spine lettered in gilt An extraordinary rare botanical work of great beauty. Richard Anthony Salisbury, botanist and botanical artist, was born Richard Markham. He was left a legacy by Miss Anna Salisbury to aid his botanical studies, on the condition that he change his name to honor the memory of her late brother.After completing his studies at the University of Edinburgh, he resided at Chapel Allerton, Yorkshire, where he cultivated a large collection of plants. "Salisbury was an enthusiastic and accomplished botanist. He was a Fellow of the Royal and Linnean Societies and one of the Founders of the Horticultural Society of London" (Henrey).Dedicated to Banks, this privately-printed work was originally issued in two parts, each containing five hand coloured plates. According to the author's preface, he was assisted by James Sowerby. The plates are extraordinary, being watercolour and gouache over very thin etched line. That process, coupled with the absence of any text, plate numbers, captions, etc. on the plates, give them the impression of original watercolours. Indeed even the plate marks are barely visible to that end. The plants depicted, most flowering, include several North and South American varieties.The work is quite rare, with no other complete example appearing in the auction records for the last thirty-five years, with no copies in the famed botanical collection of Plesch or De Belder. Of the three copies examined by Stafleu and Cowan, two are incomplete.Johnston 607 (this copy); Nissen BBI 1719 (incorrecty calling for 20 plates); Stafleu-Cowan TL2 10.118; Henrey 1298.

      William Bulmer, London 1791 - (21 3/4 x 17 1/4 inches). [6], 20pp. 10 hand-coloured engravings by and after Salisbury, being watercolour and gouache over thin etched line. Extra-illustrated with a duplicate of plate nine. Modern half black morocco over green cloth covered boards, spine lettered in gilt An extraordinary rare botanical work of great beauty. Richard Anthony Salisbury, botanist and botanical artist, was born Richard Markham. He was left a legacy by Miss Anna Salisbury to aid his botanical studies, on the condition that he change his name to honor the memory of her late brother. After completing his studies at the University of Edinburgh, he resided at Chapel Allerton, Yorkshire, where he cultivated a large collection of plants. "Salisbury was an enthusiastic and accomplished botanist. He was a Fellow of the Royal and Linnean Societies and one of the Founders of the Horticultural Society of London" (Henrey). Dedicated to Banks, this privately-printed work was originally issued in two parts, each containing five hand coloured plates. According to the author's preface, he was assisted by James Sowerby. The plates are extraordinary, being watercolour and gouache over very thin etched line. That process, coupled with the absence of any text, plate numbers, captions, etc. on the plates, give them the impression of original watercolours. Indeed even the plate marks are barely visible to that end. The plants depicted, most flowering, include several North and South American varieties. The work is quite rare, with no other complete example appearing in the auction records for the last thirty-five years, with no copies in the famed botanical collection of Plesch or De Belder. Of the three copies examined by Stafleu and Cowan, two are incomplete. Johnston 607 (this copy); Nissen BBI 1719 (incorrecty calling for 20 plates); Stafleu-Cowan TL2 10.118; Henrey 1298.

Gli ultimi due volumi sono rilegati in mz.pelle. La prima edizione comparve come "Journal du Palais" fondé pendant la Révolution par une société d'avoués, composé de «questions oiseuses, quelquefois plaisantes ou étrangères à la jurisprudence»". La seconda edizione, completamente riveduta, apparve con l'intestazione "Journal du Palais: présentant la jurisprudence de la Cour de Cassation et des cours royales... Nouvelle édition" e curatore ne fu M.Bourgois: tra il 1823 e il 1827 furono pubblicati 24 volumi, che coprivano un arco temporale compreso tra il 1791 e il 1822. La terza edizione fu infine curata da Alexandre Auguste Ledru - Rollin (1807 - 1874), che ottenne ampia fama nella difesa dei Repubblicani. Ledru Rollin ne mantenne la direzione fino al 1847, affiancato dal 1845 da Jean Antoine Levesque. Dal 1848 al 1852 il suo nome fu sostituito dalla dizione "par une société de jurisconsultes et de magistrats", e dal 1853 divenne direttore M.Arnzt. Con il n°47 l'Editore Auvilliers sostituisce Patris. Nel 1881 la testata si trasforma in "Recueil général des lois et des arrêts en matière civile, criminelle, commerciale et de droit public". Fra i numerosi collaboratori del "Journal" sono da annoverare Barnouvin, X.Benoit, H.Bertin, A.Billequin, Alexandre Bottin, Amable Boullanger, Boucher d'Argis, Léopold Briant, Brixhe, Chassan, Darbon, E.D'Auvilliers, Deleurie, D'Elhounge, Doreye, Duchollet, Durand de Saint - Amand, A.Fabre, Frantz Faider, Garnier Dubourgneuf, T.Gelle, Harel, Jouaust, A.Lelievre, Lignier, Mailher de Chassat, Maniez, Meynard de Franc, Mongis, F.Noblet, A.Orts, Réquédat, C.V.Richard, Rieff, F.Roger, A.Roussel, C.Royer, L.Sancke, Souef, Sulpicy, Teulet, D.Vervoort, etc.

        Itinéraire de Genève, Lausanne et Chamouni

      xiv, 374 pp. Small 8vo, cont. green sheep-backed green boards maroquiné, single gilt fillet round sides, flat spine gilt. Geneva: J.E. Didier, 1791. First edition and rather scarce. Bourrit (1735-1815), the son of a watchmaker in Geneva, was one of the first to systematically explore and record the Alps and their geological features. In the years 1784-85 he was the first to attempt the ascent of Mont Blanc (not conquered until 1786). In 1787 he reopened the route over the Col de Géant (11,060 ft.), which had fallen into oblivion. The first part of this book (pp. 1-158) is a description of the city of Geneva, written for refugees from the French Revolution. Each quarter is described, along with the educational institutions, museums, commercial activities, climate, and recreational facilities. Pages 159-88 contain an appendix with lists of hotels and pensions, language teachers, private tutors, printers, furniture makers, money changers, and the leading businessmen. Pages 189-205 provide a bibliography of Genevan authors. The remainder of the book describes, in a series of letters, Bourrit's walking tour to Chamonix. Fine copy, signed by Prince Dietrichstein on the free front endpaper. .
