        Antique Map-FRANCE-BRETAGNE-BRITTANY-Vaugondy-Delamarche-1793

      - Map: 'Carte du Gouvernement de Bretagne .' (Map of the Bretagne / Brittany region, France). Nicely inked map. Scarse. Copperplate engraving and etching on a verge type hand laid paper. Description: This map originates from an unrecorded composite Atlas compiled around 1795 (based on youngest dated map) which contained many maps originally published in the famous 'Atlas Universel.', by de Vaugondy, first published in 1757. To produce the atlas, the Vaugondys integrated older sources with more modern surveyed maps. They verified and corrected the latitude and longitude of many regional maps in the atlas with astronomical observations. The older material was revised with the addition of many new place names. In the late 18th c. the plates of these maps were acquired by Delamarche. This map has reference to Le Sr. Robert de Vaugondy and Delamarche in it's cartouche. This map was originally published in 1768.Artists and Engravers: Gilles Robert de Vaugondy (1688�1766), also known as Le Sieur or Monsieur Robert, and his son, Didier Robert de Vaugondy (c.1723�1786), were leading cartographers in France during the 18th century. Charles Francois Delamarche (1740-1817) founded the important and prolific Paris based Maison Delamarche map publishing firm in the late 18th century. A lawyer by trade Delamarche entered the map business with the acquisition from Jean-Baptiste Fortin of Robert de Vaugondy's map plates and copyrights and later addes many plates from other sources as well. Charles Delamarche eventually passed control of the firm to his son Felix Delamarche (18th C. - 1st half 19th C.) and geographer Charles Dien (1809-1870). It was later passed on to Alexandre Delamarche, who revised and reissued several Delamarche publications in the mid-19th century. The firm continued to publish maps and globes until the middle part of the 19th century. Condition: General age related toning and light staining. Irregular paper edges, chipped with small tears.

        Fabler. Första delen.

      Sthlm, A. Zetterberg, 1793. 8:o. Grav. porträtt,(8),144 s. & 1 grav. plansch & 4 s. grav. noter. Mörkbrunt marmorerat hfrbd från slutet av 1800-talet med upphöjda bind, guldornerad rygg, röd titeletikett och röda snitt. En liten oval etikett med bläcknumrering nedtill på ryggen. Ryggskinnet ytligt nött och blekt på sina håll. Det grav. porträttet ngt solkigt. På titelbladet skrivet med bläck att översättaren är Bellman. Enstaka lager- och småfläckar. En liten fläck i marginalen på s. 144. Med H. Schröderheims namnteckning på ett gammalt medbundet försättsblad och bläcksignaturen "J:S:". Ur Ludvig Kahns bibliotek. Allt som utkom. Översatt av C. M. Bellman som också skrivit en kort dikt "Till konungen", ett förord och texten till det lilla musikstycket. Musiken komponerades av Uttini. Planschen, som är en slags idealbild av Gellerts grav, tecknades av L. Masreliez och graverades av J. F. Martin. Denne har också graverat porträttet efter en vaxbyst som tillhörde Lars von Engeström. Namnteckningen tillhör sannolikt Herman Schröderheim (1818-79) som var militär. Han var brorsonson till Bellmans vän Elis Schröderheim. Initialerna "J:S:" kan vara skrivna av hans farmor Johanna Ullmarck, gift med Herman Schröderheim (1749-1802).

      Finely engraved frontis. port. of the author & one folding engraved plate. Many tables in the text. 2 p.l., 70, [2], 308 pp. Large 4to, fine cont. straight-grained red morocco, panelled & decorated in gilt, flat spine gilt, dentelles gilt, blue silk endpapers, a.e.g. Paris: chez l'Auteur & Dezauche, 1793. First edition, and a magnificent large copy in finely gilt contemporary straight-grained red morocco, of one of Lalande's most important works; the 308 pages of tables were entirely calculated by Lalande's illegitimate daughter, Marie Jeanne Amélie Harlay (1760-1832). Lalande trained Amélie in mathematics so she could help him with his work. He also trained his cousin Michel Lefrançais de Lalande (1776-1839), whom he called his nephew. Michel married Amélie and Lalande then called her his "niece." Amélie and Michel became important members of the Lalande family team working day and night on many of his projects. In the present work, the vast navigation tables, containing a wealth of calculations, were entirely executed by her. The book was designed to help navigators calculate the time at sea by the altitude of the sun and stars. Amélie also lectured on astronomy. Michel and Amélie named their son Isaac after Isaac Newton and their daughter Caroline after Caroline Herschel. Pages 11-19 contain an invaluable bibliography of books on navigation, pilotage, and naval architecture. This is the finest copy of this work to appear on the market in many, many years. ❧ D.S.B., VII, pp. 59-82. Lalande, p. 627-"On y trouve le catalogue de tous les bons livres de navigation qui ne sont point dans cette Bibliographie; les tables sont de Mme. Le Français de la Lande. C'etaient les seules tables qui manquassent aux navigateurs pour trouver facilement les longitudes.".

        Della libertà e della eguaglianza degli uomini, e dei cittadini. Colle considerazioni sopra alcuni nuovi dommi politici ed appendice.Traduzione italiana dalla prima edizione

      presso Ignazio Alberti. Cm. 24, pp. (12) 445 (7). Bella legatura coeva in piena pelle con titoli su tassello e ricchi fregi in oro al dorso; piatti inquadrati a duplice cornice dorata. Dentelles, tagli dorati, segnalibro in seta verde. Sottile fenditura al piatto anteriore e minime mende al dorso, qualche trascurabile fioritura, peraltro esemplare ben conservato e stampato su carta forte. Sebastiano d'Ayala (1744-1817), gesuita di Castrogiovanni, fu diplomatico a Vienna e sovente menzionato come biografo e curatore delle opere di Metastasio, del quale peraltro fu amico. L'opera è un interessantissimo saggio sui principi scaturiti dalla Rivoluzione francese: diritti naturali, libertà costituzionale, civile e sociale ed infine le diverse tipologie di eguaglianza. L'Autore fu influenzato dal pensiero politico di Montesquieu e dalle idee controrivoluzionarie di Edmund Burke. Rarissima prima traduzione italiana (curata dall'amico Francesco Ruspoli) impressa dopo la prima in francese edita sempre a Vienna nel 1792. Seguirono, sempre nel 1793, le edizioni di Torino e le due senza dati tipografici, più comuni e di formato più piccolo. Cfr.

        The Life of Samuel Johnson, LL.D. Comprehending an Account of His Studies and Numerous Works, in Chronological Order The Whole Exhibiting a View of Literature and Literary Men in Great Britain for Near a Century During Which He Flourished. In Two Volumes. [Together with:] The Principal Corrections and Additions to the first edition of Mr. Boswell's Life of Dr. Johnson.

      London: by Henry Baldwin, for Charles Dilly, 1791 & 1793 - Together 2 works bound in 2 volumes, quarto (275 x 217 mm). Contemporary tree calf, neatly rebacked with original spines laid down, red morocco title labels renewed to style, oval red numbering pieces laid down on black morocco labels, richly gilt in compartments, sides bordered in gilt with Greek key roll, plain endpapers and edges. Corners worn, some foxing, heaviest near the portrait, generally a very good set. Engraved frontispiece portrait of Johnson, round robin and handwriting plates in vol. II. Second state of vol. I (with "give" spelt correctly on p. 135). First editions, presentation copies, both the Life of Johnson and Principal Corrections with individual autograph presentation inscriptions from the author to Andrew Lumisden (1720–1801), a friend of Boswell's who had assisted in preparing the Life by deciphering Johnson's manuscript notebook of his trip to France in October–November 1775. This assistance is acknowledged in print at the footnote on p. 511, vol. I: "My worthy and ingenious friend, Mr. Andrew Lumisdaine [sic], by his accurate acquaintance with France, enabled me to make out many proper names, which Dr. Johnson had written indistinctly, and sometimes spelt erroneously". The autograph inscriptions read, on the Life, "To Andrew Lumisden Esq: from his old and much obliged friend The Authour", and on the Principal Corrections, "To Andrew Lumisden Esq: from his obliged friend The Authour." Andrew Lumisden was a fascinating character. Educated like Boswell for a respectable career in the law, Lumisden threw it all away in 1745 for the Jacobite cause. He served as the under-secretary and the first clerk of the treasury to the Young Pretender throughout the campaign of 1745–6 and was present at Culloden. Adopting a variety of disguises after the battle, he managed to escape to Paris, where he entered the service of the Old Pretender. He and Boswell became acquainted in Rome in 1765. Lumisden was still in Rome on 23 January 1766 to greet Charles Edward on his accession, but by now felt only a thinly veiled contempt for the Young Pretender and was dismissed from his service on 8 December 1768. From 1769 to 1773 Lumisden resided in Paris, where he gradually distanced himself from the Stuart cause. A member of the royal and antiquaries' societies of Edinburgh, Lumisden corresponded with Boswell, as well as Joseph Banks, Adam Smith, and David Hume. He received a full pardon from the British government in 1778, having done his personal cause some good by buying up a collection of rare books for the Prince of Wales, and in due course returned to Edinburgh. With the bookplates of Sir Thomas Andrew Lumisden Strange (1756–1841) and Thomas Lumisden Strange (1808–1884), respectively nephew and grandnephew of Andrew Lumisden; signed by Thomas Lumisden Strange in each volume and with a note on Boswell's Life copied by him from Samuel Parr. Presentation copies of the Life are rare in commerce. The last copy at auction, that given to Boswell's executor Sir William Forbes of Pitsligo was inscribed only on a note tipped in before the title (Sotheby's, 13 December 2016, lot 45). Prior to that, the only other presentation copy sold at auction was that given to John Douglas, Bishop of Carlisle, who appears in a short episode in the work (Sotheby's NY, 1998). Pottle notes other presentation copies given to John Wilkes, Warren Hastings, Sir William Scott, and James Boswell the younger. Pottle 79; Rothschild 463 & 466; Tinker 338.

        AN ANSWER TO PAIN'S [sic] RIGHTS OF MAN. By John Adams, Esq. Originally Printed in America

      London: Reprinted for Owen Picadilly, 1793. [2],34pp. Original plain wrappers, stitched, as issued. Spine perishing, light wear at edges. Contemporary ownership inscription on front wrapper. Light tanning, occasional faint foxing. A very good copy, in original condition. Untrimmed. Second London printing of seven letters by John Quincy Adams, first published in Boston's COLUMBIAN SENTINEL between 1791 and 1793. This is one of five editions published in London and Dublin in the same year; there was no separate American edition. The letters were first attributed to John Adams, but were written by his son at the age of twenty-six. Adams' letters concern the French Revolution and the questions those events raised about the nature of good government. Like Thomas Paine, the younger Adams supports "the downfall of the arbitrary system of Government in France," but is repelled by Paine's assertion of an "infallible criterion of orthodoxy." In examining the RIGHTS OF MAN, he rejects the idea that England should "destroy their present form of government, and asserts that the English have exercised their inalienable rights and have chosen their own form of government. He then goes on to recount its perceived virtues, in opposition to Paine's glorification of "the mob," which will eventually destroy individual liberty. A scarce printing of one of John Quincy Adams' earliest published works. ESTC locates six copies in American institutions. ESTC N30406. WISE & CRONIN 14.

        An Essay Upon Gardening, containing a catalogue of exotic plants for the stoves and green-houses of the British gardens..

      York: G. Peacock, 1793. Some light scattered foxing.. Quarto, 3 folding plates, contemporary (?original) marbled boards, calf spine renewed. A singular work written and published at the cusp of the fashion for exotics, which provides a most interesting overview of the state of play in England in the early 1790s. Richard Steele, a Yorkshire gardener who lived and worked around Thirsk, wrote the work as "an attempt to aid in the management of that most elegantly-refined and fascinating department of the Garden, where the prodigious variety of rare plants that have been introduced into this kingdom, from the hot regions of the terraqueous globe, are deposited...".What is immediately noticeable is that while there are established collections from the East and West Indies, and while British gardens were beginning to have really substantial collections of Cape plants, there is still only a handful of Australian plants available for cultivation. Published in the same year as Smith's Botany, this work describes six Australian plants, all apparently collected before the First Fleet era. The Eucalyptus obliqua noticed by Steele, for example, was the first major plant to be routinely noticed as growing in England, and is known to have been collected in Tasmania by Furneaux in 1774 and Cook in 1777, being first figured in France in 1788. Thus, while Steele's work includes notes on how best to grow each species, most of the notes on Australian plants display some uncertainty, as with the entry on the eucalpyt: "I cannot speak with certainty as to the propagation of this plant; but most of the South Sea woody plants will grow from cuttings, with the same treatment as cuttings from plants of similar latitudes in the other hemisphere."The work concludes with a two-page notice on the "Directions for the Preservation of Seeds, &c." on long voyages, and it also includes a most interesting essay on how to get the best out of the "Stove", recommending that one about 160 feet long (!) would be appropriate for "containing a prodigious collection of plants for the satisfaction of the curious." The essay on the Stove dwells particularly on the growing of grapes and vines, with asides on exotic fruits such as the pineapple, at this time beginning to be regarded as the pinnacle of the art of the exotic gardener. In this regard the three plates are significant, the first two reproducing Steele's notion of the ideal stove and greenhouse, while the third shows the more modest greenhouse actually built by Richard Anthony Salisbury, of note because he was one of those who did in fact cultivate Australian plants, and who published with William Hooker the Paradisus Londinensis (1805-1809).The subscribers - some 275 - would probably have accounted for the bulk of the edition, and it has proved to be a rare work on the market. Steele's essay was published in York, and there is certainly a northern bias to the subscribers: it's not often that a work of this type and date would have been subscribed to by folks such as "James Banks, Esq., of Pontefract", but not his namesake Sir Joseph. Many are gardeners to large estates, or architects, and there are a goodly number of other middle class professionals: surgeons, attorneys, and the like. Among his contemporaries Richard Anthony Salisbury is probably the most prominent, and there is also the Duke of Portland, whose house Bulstrode was a centre for natural history in this era, largely due to the efforts of Margaret Bentinck, Duchess of Portland (1715-1785). Provenance: Marmaduke Jerard Grimston, of Grimston Garth and Kilnwick (1826-1879, like the author a Yorkshireman), with his armorial bookplate.

        Allgemeine Geschichte der Natur in alphabetischer Ordung; fortgesetzt von einer Gesellschaft Gelehrten, und herausgegeben von Johann Georg Krünitz

      Berlin and Stettin: Pauli 1774 - 1793 - 11 Bände (vollständig) - With 559 (plus 12 additional), mostly coloured engraved plates, eleven engraved portraits and engraved title vignette. Contemporary calf, gilt spine in compartments, two morocco labels. Browning here and there due to paper quality, otherwise an excellent most complete copy Very rare in complete form. With all plates mentioned and 12 additional plates with shells probably from another work bound in. Allgemeine Geschichte der Natur ("The General History of Nature) by Fried-rich Heinrich Martini and J. Georg Krünitz is one of a number of large, comprehensive dictionaries of nature that were published during the 18th century. Written in the style of the French dictionaries like Valmont de Bomare's, this work on natural history and botany covers animals, entomology, shells, plants, geology, minerals, fossils, and more, with many of the illustrative plates designed by the distinguished artists of the age. These plates were mostly engraved by J. Schmidt in Berlin. Unlike many of the contemporary French works, however, this book is alphabetical in ist treatment of the subject. Apparently it was not a profitable venture either, and was never completed, with the 11 volumes that appeared extending only from the letter A through entries beginning with Coquille’. The compilers of dictionaries had two large banks from which to rob: Linnaeus' Systema Naturæ and Buffon's Histoire Naturelle. They would abstract and arrange the contents of these works alphabetically. As a result the reader got Linnaeus' exactness and Buffon's fine writing in both science and literature. Creation of such dictionaries reached ist zenith with the extravagant works of Houttyun's Natuurkyke Historie of Uitvoerige Beschryving der Dieren, Planten en Mineralen, published in thirty-seven volumes (1761 - 1785), and Valmont de Bomare's Dictionaire Raisoné Universel d'Histoire Naturelle, that appeared in at least five editions, and in Danish, Dutch, Italian and Russian translations. Martini's Allgemeine Geschichte der Natur in alfabetischer Ordnung (1774), which ambi-tiously built on Bomare's Dictionaire and invited ist readers to participate in making a new edition by filling out pages left blank for the purpose. Friedrich Heinrich Wilhelm Martini (1729 1778) was a german physician, translator of natural history works and shell collector. Martini who worked as physician in Hamburg, before relocating to Berlin where he founded the important and influential Gesellschaft naturforschender Freunde. Martini began to publish in 1769 a famous book on shells: Neues systematisches Conchylien-Cabinet published by Raspe at Nürnberg. But he died after the publication of the third volume. His work was continued by Johann Hieronymus Chemnitz (1730 -1800) who added eight volumes between 1779 and 1795. Even though the work does not use the binomial system both are considered author of the new species figured. His Allgemeine Geschichte der Natur incorporates many articles on shells and images of specimens from different shell collections.- Dance. Shell Collecting.

"The plates in this famous edition are free adaptations from the designs of Kent, Wootton, and Gravelot, who illustrated the earlier printings of Gay's Fables. William Blake completely redesigned, and redrew, the 12 images for which he is responsible, and is listed among the subscribers to the edition, as are the other engravers who worked on this project. Blake engraved the plates opposite pp. 1, 29, 59, 73, 99, 109, 125, 133 and 181 in volume one; and those opposite pp. 1, 105 and 145 in volume two." (Sotheran's).
