Chauchard M dis. & S. Dezauche edit.
1791. carta murale dell'Italia settentrionale, ricca, per la cartografia alpina, di toponimi, ma imprecisa dal punto di vista topografico. Le montagne sono disegnate in modo suggestivo con ombreggiatura verso Est, mentre i vari confini sono ben evidenziati dalla coloritura. Si tratta di una carta leggendaria: nella Seconda Campagna d'Italia del 1800 l'Ufficio Topografico dell'Armée de Réserve ne aveva a disposizione un esemplare; nelle Memoires di Louis de Bourienne, segretario di Napoleone, la carta è ricordata per un curioso aneddoto che ci descrive Bonaparte steso sopra la carta, intento a studiare e segnare con degli spilli colorati i punti strategici per la battaglia di Marengo. L'esemplare presenta dei piccoli restauri antichi nella parte centrale, che non compromettono però la sua integrità. L'opera, così stampata in quattro fogli, di difficile reperibilità. Coloritura coeva dei confini.Bibliografia: Davoli, Sanfelici, Zanasi, p. 174, n° 80; Aliprandi, vol. I, p. 232

Benyovszky, Maurice Augustus Count de.
1791. 4 volumes bound as 2. 8vo. First title-page with stipple-engraved portrait. Contemporary gold-tooled half calf, sprinkled edges. Remarkably rare (STCN lists only two complete copies) first Dutch edition of the memoirs of Count Mauritius Augustus de Benyovsky (1746-1786) and an account of his travels in China and the North Pacific. Benyovsky, a nobleman of Hungarian origin, had travelled to Poland and Lithuania where he was involved in military operations relating to Poland's struggle for independence from Russia. After being captured by the Russians in 1770, he was sent into exile to Kamchatka peninsula on the eastern Siberian coast. With other prisoners, however, he managed to escape by sea in 1771. On their journey they visited Japan, Formosa, Canton, China and the northern Pacific, well before James Cook and La Perouse. His voyage to Macau was the first known voyage from the north-east to the south-east shores of Asia. The present work contains details on Siberia, the Russian fur trade and the history, life and customs of the natives of Kamchatka. There is also a description of the Kurile and Aleutian islands and Benyovsky claims to have landed on Alaska. In the name of the French government he later led an expedition to Madagascar to establish a French colony of which an account is included. Back in Paris Benyovsky became a close friend of Benjamin Franklin and Casimir Pulasky. In 1779 he followed Pulaski to America and offered his services in the American Revolution. With Benjamin Franklin's assistance he founded an American-British company for business with Mada … [Click Below for Full Description]

The Reverend Richard Warner [1763-1857].
London, Printed for R. Blamire, Strand, 1791. First edition. We assume this must have been the author's own copy (see below). Quarto, 295x229mm. In contemporary tan calf, with some old surface abrasion and rubbing in places. Decorative gilt and blind border rules at edge of boards. Sometime rebacked with five raised bands on spine and burgundy lettering-piece. All edges marbled. [3], ii-lx, 137, [1] pages, plus two aquatint plates, a single page of 'A Saxon Entertainmet' and a double page of 'A Peacock Feast', which was removed from all the copies then unsold following a dispute over copyright. Marbled end-papers; armorial bookplate of Frederick Elwin Watson on front pastedown. Verso of front free end-paper and first blank brown spotted. Engraved title-page. At the foot of page [lix], 'The Contents', a neat manuscript note refers to the the vellum roll of 'The Forme of Cury'. Beginning at the end of line 5: '... it came into the hands of the late Gustavus Brander, Esq; of Christ-church, Hants. ... when the collection of rarities ... came to be examined, sometime after his decease, for the purpose of taking an inventory of them, the 'Forme of Cury' was missing, and has never since been heard of.'. The manuscript note reads: 'This is a mistake; the original Roll is now in the British Museum, where it was deposited by Mr Brander shortly before his decease. R. Warner December 1793'. Most fascinatingly, the chapters on chapters on the intronization of Archbishop Neville in 1465, and Archbishop Warham, in 1504, give the neams of those in attendance, their order of precedence, the … [Click Below for Full Description]

AUCTION CATALOGUE: MIRABEAU)

The scarce sale catalogue of the important library of Honoré Gabriel Riquetti, Comte de Mirabeau (1749-91), the great French statesman and intellectual pathfinder of the French Revolution. It was the plan of Mirabeau to build up a gigantic library illustrative of the progress of mankind. The particular interest of this catalogue lies in the fact that it incorporates Buffon's library which Mirabeau acquired after Buffon's death. Buffon's books take up a substantial portion of the natural history section of the catalogue (pp. 160-212), where particular copies having belonged to Buffon are noted, including many books with his manuscript annotations. 2854 lots, including MSS. The separately issued author index is present. Blogie col. 18. Peignot, p. 114"Dans ce catalogue intéressant.il renferme beaucoup de notes bibliographiques." Taylor, Book Catalogues, pp. 145-46.

AUCTION CATALOGUE: [PÂRIS D'ILLINS, Antoine Marie])
viii, 164 pp. 8vo, cont. paper-backed pink boards (rather rubbed & a little discolored), uncut.[London: for J. Edwards, 1791]. The English edition, first issue, of the catalogue of this famous sale. For a fascinating account of this catalogue and sale (which caused traffic jams along Pall Mall), see Arthur Rau's "Bibliotheca Parisina" in The Book Collector (Autumn 1969), pp. 307-17. Amongst the buyers at this sale were Lord Spencer, Douce, Woodhull, Cracherode, and the Duke of Newcastle. Thanks to the recent researches of Milton McC. Gatch ("The Bibliotheca Parisina" in The Library, Seventh Series, Vol. 12, Number 2 (June 2011), pp. 90-118), we finally know the identity of the consignor: Antoine Marie Pâris d'Illins (1746-1809), a military man who was forced to emigrate in 1792 because of conflicts with the Revolution. Rehabilitated by Napoleon, Pâris d'Illins died as a general of the infantry during the Spanish campaigns at Cocana in 1809. See the entire article to learn more about the collector, his library, Edwards's additions, etc. We know that not all the books came from the one library; there were books from Loménie de Brienne, masquerading under another provenance probably for political reasons, and Aldines which Edwards must have obtained in Italy. Nevertheless, this is one of the great sales of the period. Fine uncut copy. The first issue bears the date of 26th March (not a Monday). ❧ De Ricci, p. 89. Peignot, pp. 116-17.
