With an intriguing gift inscription probably to John Rawdon, first Earl of Moira who died in 1793 from one John Ball: 'Honoratissimo Comiti de Mojral misit Johannes Ball A.M. Michael Maittaire (also Michael) (1668 ?- 7 September 1747) was a French-born classical scholar and bibliographer in England, and a tutor to Lord Philip Stanhope. He edited an edition of Quintus Curtius Rufus, later owned by Thomas Jefferson. His works included a grammar of English (1712). He was born in France of Huguenot parents, who around the time of the Revocation of the Edict of Nantes moved to England. He obtained a king's scholarship at Westminster School in 1682. Richard Busby, then head-master, made him concentrate on the study of Greek and Latin. On leaving school he went to The Hague, where he was received by the Vaillants, and then to Paris. On returning to England he gained the goodwill of Robert South, at the time a canon of Christ Church, Oxford; it is said that he compiled a list of the Greek words that were wrongly accented in the works of William Sherlock. South made him 'canoneer' student of Christ Church, and he took the degree of M.A. on 23 March 1696, being incorporated M.A. at Cambridge in 1708. In 1695 he was appointed second master of Westminster, but resigned in 1699 and kept a private school, one of the pupils at which was Stephen Martin Leake. Late in life he was Latin tutor to Stanhope, Lord Chesterfield's son. In 1728 he was living in a house in Orange Street, near Holborn, London. Maittaire died on 7 September 1747, aged 79. Over fifty years he had formed a large library, rich in early printed editions. It was sold by auction in London by Cock & Langford, the sale beginning on 21 November 1748 and lasting for forty-four evenings. Maittaire began to publish about 1706. His major works are his Annales Typographici and other writings on the history of printing, and of editions of the classics, especially the series of Latin classics printed in duodecimo by Jacob Tonson and Watts of London from 1713 to 1719. Pope had made Maittaire in the manuscript of the Dunciad an inhabitant of the "Kingdom of Dullness", but the lines were not printed, after a request made for their suppression by Edward Harley, 2nd Earl of Oxford, a patron of Maittaire. Extracts from Maittaire's letters to the Earl of Oxford are printed in John Nichols's Literary Anecdotes, and other letters by him are in George Ballard's collection in the Bodleian Library. In his earliest letters he signs his name 'Michell Mattaire'. (Wikipedia)

      Cap-Français, 1793. Old fold lines. Light wear and soiling. Very good. During the early years of the French Revolution, Sonthonax was the civil commissioner of Saint-Domingue, which would soon become Haiti. A radical Jacobin, he presided over a chaotic period of conflicts between royalists and revolutionaries, and between whites, free people of color, and slaves in full revolt. He is most remembered for freeing the colony's slaves on Aug. 29, 1793 in an effort to gain the support of Toussaint L'Ouverture's forces against the Spanish. This document appoints the mulatto general, Villate, a rival of Toussaint's, as military commander of the city. It is signed by Sonthonax and countersigned by French military leader Etienne LaVeaux, who later assumed the governorship for himself, but he held power only briefly before being deposed by Toussaint. A large woodcut vignette proclaiming "La Republique Française, Une et Indivisible" heads the document. All early printed material from Saint Domingue is, in and of itself, rare by nature. A handsome and important piece, signed by two important figures in the early Haitian revolution, formalizing the rise to power of a third.

        Joseph-Geneviève, Le Comte de Puisaye - Signed letter to General Moreau

      Joseph-Geneviève, Le Comte de Puisaye, 1793. No binding. Very Good. PUISAYE (Joseph of). Signed letter "Joseph cte D.P." addressed to the General Jean-Victor MOREAU. S.l., [probably 1793, and not on 19 Sept. 1796 as indicated by an old note]. 1 p. 1/2 folios, letter cut into two with the folding and repaired on the back but almost separated. Age toned paper with chipping and on the edges and a couple of small tears with one affecting the letter in the date. Nice hand-written letter. Condition otherwise very good.The count Joseph of PUISAYE (1755-1827) was one of the burning defenders of the royalist cause. Outlaw, he took refuge in 1793 in the forests at Rennes, where it reorganized bands of chouans. Then he shared his activity between London and the continent, organized landing of Quiberon in June 1795 as well as many military operations. English translation of ALS by Puisaye..."No, Monsieur the General, at least as I like to believe it (as far as I think), the fame of your new post will not at all dazzle you you and will not diminish the feelings of attachment to your King that you were not afraid of demonstrating in the most difficult (trying) circumstances. Ah! If this generosity feeling in your heart were to be extinguished for an instant, I would say to you, look back into the past, you will see there the bloody shadow of a respectable and unfortunate father fallen victim of the assassins who you now serve... If you listen closely? You will hear the cries for vengeance that he (your father) raises right to you, they (the cries) are the certain (very) expression of the pain that he feels in seeing you support the bloody side that has just murdered him...... ah! Moreau, Change your cypresses for lauriers and hasten to nurture them under the flag of honour and duty to merit the tribute of estimation and recognition that a generous monarch offers you. There will not be, I dare to assure you in his name, a greater dear joy, than that of you working for his throne and authority. Telling you the means to render this exercise an infallible success is absolutely useless; you have them (the means) in hand.

      L'Isle Bourbon, 1793. Quarto. Printed self-wrappers, stitched as issued. Contemporary manuscript inscription on titlepage. Moderate dampstaining to lower half of text. Good plus. Extremely early and rare imprint from the colonial press at the French colony of Bourbon, present-day Réunion Island, dated August 1, 1793. The text outlines the articles for the organization of a voluntary militia for the island. The first printing press arrived on Réunion in June 1792 and began to print early in 1793, rendering this piece very early in the history of the island's printing. Once printing arrived on the island, it was spotty at best, with a dormant period from 1797 to 1803, and many of the official documents still came over from nearby Mauritius which was responsible for the administration of Réunion. Printing began on Mauritius in 1768, and it would seem that, for the most part, Mauritius's press was sufficient for the distribution of printed material on Réunion Island. No copies located in OCLC. Possibly unique.

        Mann, vor einem Buch bei Kerzenschein am Tisch sitzend; Halbfigur.

      - Rötel auf grauem Bütten. 34,5 x 21 cm. Es sei zur Diskussion gestellt, ob es sich bei diesem Blatt nicht um eine Zeichnung Wilhelm von Kobells, seinen Vater Ferdinand Kobell darstellend, handelt. Die große Nähe zu Wilhelm von Kobells Zeichnung von 1793 „Der Vater Ferdinand" ist unverkennbar. (Vgl. S. Wichmann, Wilhelm von Kobell. München, Prestel, 1970, Nr. 182, Abb. P. 196).

        Alpine Gletscheransicht mit figürlicher Staffage. Aquarell über Tuschfederzeichnung. Im unteren Rand signiert „Montgelas fecit 1793".

      1793. 1793 - Unter Passepartout gerahmt (abgebildet das volle Blatt). Blattgröße 34 x 28 cm, die eigentliche Darstellung nur geringfügig kleiner. Im weißen Rand sehr schwach finger- bzw. braunfleckig, obere linke Ecke mit undeutlicher Knickspur, kaum sichtbar. Insgesamt wohlerhalten. Eindrucksvolle Landschaftsdarstellung aus der Frühzeit alpiner Erschließungsgeschichte. Der Künstler war offensichtlich mit den zeitgenössischen Theorien des Erhabenen vertraut: Am Fuße des Gletscherabflußes – fast auf Punktgröße reduziert und sich dem Betrachter erst auf den zweiten Blick offenbarend – können drei Reisende ausgemacht werden, die in ein Gespräch vertieft auf Einzelheiten der Naturerscheinung zeigen. Ihre Körperhaltungen sind dabei unnatürlich forciert: Die Rücken weit durchgebogen und so die natürliche Beschränkung des optischen Sinnes körperlich erweiternd versuchen sie die vor ihnen liegende geologische Formation in ihrer Gesamtheit in den Blick zu nehmen. Der Künstler kommentiert dieses vergebliche Ansinnen auf ironische Weise, ist sich aber zugleich der Tragik des Ganzen bewußt, wenn er das eigentliche Naturereignis – den Gletscher – trotz seines eigenen, gegenüber den Reisenden deutlich erhöhten Standpunktes auch für den Betrachter des Aquarells verbirgt. Auch für diesen bleiben lediglich die umliegenden, schneebedeckten Hochgebirgszüge und die nackte, den Abfluß des Gletscher begrenzende Felswand sichtbar. Eine präzise Zuordnung welcher der wenigen, zumeist bayerischen Träger des Namens Montgelas (hier offenbar noch ohne das gräfliche Adelsprädikat) vorliegendes Aquarell anfertigte, blieb bislang leider erfolglos. Jedoch sprechen die Qualität der Ausführung und das Sujet für einen in der Freiluftmalerei geschulten Künstler. 1001 g

      Norwich, Ct, 1793. Folio. Old fold lines. Later paper strip attached to top of verso. Slight separation at some folds. Minor toning. Docketed on verso. Very good. In a half cloth clamshell case, gilt leather label. The retained copy of a letter written by Samuel Huntington, but entirely in his hand and signed by him. Huntington was a Signer of the Declaration of Independence and Governor of Connecticut, and here writes to Secretary of War Major General Henry Knox, indicating receipt of the terms of neutrality which the United States adopted towards Britain and France, and Connecticut's willingness to abide by those terms. Samuel Huntington was a Signer of the Declaration of Independence, served as President of the Continental Congress, and was the third governor of Connecticut, serving for ten years, until his death in 1793. Henry Knox served with distinction during the American Revolution; he was charged with Washington's famous crossing of the Delaware River, and the successful completion of that mission earned him the promotion to brigadier general. He was one of the founding members of the Society of the Cincinnati and was the nation's first Secretary of War. On April 22, 1793, George Washington issued a statement announcing that the United States would maintain a policy of strict neutrality in the conflict between France and Britain, resulting from the French Revolution. This was the first major international conflict facing the newly formed United States, and it involved her ally, France. One of the concerns of the American government was that America not be seen to be interfering in trade - privateering to the hindrance of one side or the other. The assurances on Governor Huntington's part most likely refer to the willingness of Connecticut ship captains to abide by the law of the land and maintain U.S. neutrality. He writes: "Sir, I am on this day favoured with your two letters of the 7th instant containing the rules & regulations which the President of the United States has thought proper to adopt for a uniform line of conduct throughout the several states with respect to the belligerent powers; and also the regulations agreed upon between the general government & the Minister of France. You may be assured, sir, that a strict observance will be paid to the directions and regulations contained in those letters. I have also the satisfaction to inform you, that the inhabitants of this state appear sincerely disposed to observe a just neutrallity [sic] conformably to the tenor of the proclamation which was issued by the President on that subject and have reason to believe that the general sense & sentiment of the citizens of this state will prevent all infractions of the laws of nations as relative to the powers at war." A nice document, referring to early Federal policy, penned by one of the Signers of the Declaration of Independence.

      Paris, 1793. Light fold lines. Near fine. A lengthy letter from Gouverneur Morris to his nephew, James Morris, providing details of a 1787 loan on which significant interest was still due from the debtor, Morris' older half-sister, Mary Morris Lawrence. Morris composed this letter while serving as U.S. Finance minister to France. Most of the text is an explanation of the interest due. He states that a recent payment was made through William Constable, Morris' former business partner and who, along with other Philadelphia associates, had loaned Morris the money needed to purchase the family estate, Morrisiana, in 1787. He then embarks on a description of the remaining debt and entreats his nephew to facilitate payment "speedily." Morris ends his letter with this statement: "I perfectly agree with you that a small sum on my farm with contentment is better than any thing in a situation like that in which I am now placed but the first of all enjoyments is that which results from doing our duty." Having previously served as an assistant to Robert Morris (no relation) in the Department of Finance under the Articles of Confederation, Morris was named to the Constitutional Convention in 1787. Credited with being that document's "stylist," he would write in a later letter to Thomas Pickering: "the Constitution was written by the hand which writes you this letter; having rejected all the equivocal and redundant terms, I thought it as clear as our language would permit." Morris would later serve in the U.S. Senate and participate in the re- mapping of the city of New York that was largely responsible for its present grid pattern. Good evidence of Morris' personal finances and a fine expression of his civic spirit.

      - Philipp Veit (1793 Berlin-Mainz 1877). Jäger mit Beute. Bleistift auf Papier. -- Technik: -- Bleistift auf Papier. unten rechts bezeichnet: "Veit", nummeriert, verso Sammlungsstempel (Lugt Nr. 1159, Georg Hamminger, Regensburg). Verso weitere Studie eines Jägers. -- Maße: -- 25,6 x 26,8 cm. -- Zustand: -- Insgesamt gut, im Rand minimal fleckig. Die Linien für die Übertragung durchgegriffelt. -- Beschreibung: -- Philipp Veits Name ist auf das Engste mit der nazarenischen Kunst verbunden. 1815 schloss sich der EnkelMoses Mendelssohns in Rom dem Lukasbund um Friedrich Overbeck an und beteiligte sich an den Freskender Casa Bartholdy und des Casino Massimo. Ab 1830 wird er dafür sogen, dass unter seiner Leitung dasStädelsche Kunstinstitut zu einer nazarenischen Hochburg in Deutschland wird. Seine religiösen Motiveprägen auch heute noch neben jenen von Friedrich Overbeck maßgeblich das Bild jener Künstlergruppe. Daherist unsere Zeichnung von besonderem Interesse, denn sie ist einer jener wenigen Belege dafür, dass Veitsich auch mit Themen außerhalb der religiösen Kunst und dem Porträt beschäftigte. Das auf Vorder- undRückseite bezeichnete Blatt zeigt einen Jäger mit seinen beiden Hunden bei der Jagd (die Rückseite zeigt denJäger mit angelegter Flinte). Da es sich bei der Figur um eine Aktstudie handelt, scheint Veit hier nur dieKomposition zu klären. Die Details wird er in einem nächsten Schritt ausführen. Die groben Umrisse hat erbereits mit einigen kleinen Variationen durchgegriffelt. Der Zeichnung wird also wohl ein Ölgemälde gefolgtsein, das heute leider nicht mehr bekannt ist. Da das Motiv in Veits Werk relativ singulär ist, liegt es nahe, in dem dargestellten Jäger den langjährigenFörderer des Künstlers, Franz von Bernus zu sehen, mit dem Veit selbst öfters zur Jagd gegangen ist. Bernusließ nicht nur seine Frau von Veit porträtieren, sondern bestellte auch weitere Werke bei dem Künstler undstiftete ein Gemälde für den Kaisersaal im Frankfurter Römer. --

Paine's treatise on his religious beliefs created much controversy, and many authors wished to contribute to its refutation. "Paine completed THE AGE OF REASON (1794), an attack on organized Christianity and the idea of the divine inspiration of the Bible. A second part appeared in 1795. Although Paine, a deist, insisted, 'I believe in one God, and no more; and I hope for happiness beyond this life,' THE AGE OF REASON made his name anathema among the clergy and devout Christians on both sides of the Atlantic" - ANB.

BEING AN INVESTIGATION OF TRUE AND OF FABULOUS THEOLOGY. [Philadelphia]: Printed [by Benjamin Franklin Bache] for the booksellers, 1796. vii,100pp. including half title. 12mo. The second part of THE AGE OF REASON, first printed in France through the efforts of Joel Barlow while Paine was in prison in Luxembourg. "Paine had 15,000 copies of Part Two printed in English in Paris and forwarded them in September, 1795, to Benjamin Franklin Bache of Philadelphia. But these copies did not arrive in America until April, 1796, long after the work had been reprinted here, taken from the [earlier] London edition pirated by Symonds [also in 1795]" - Gimbel.

Gimbel notes that at the time of the trial "Paine was in France, sitting as a member of the French National Convention, which was acting as a jury in the trial of Louis XVI...Despite the brilliance of Paine's attorney, Thomas Erskine, Paine was found guilty, declared an outlaw and the RIGHTS OF MAN contraband."

      London, 1793. In excellent condition. Faden's sequence of maps of the United States represents one of the most important cartographic depictions of the newly independent republic. The present map is the fifth issue of the fourteen total appellations (including the parent plan and thirteen subsequent issues), and is one of the extremely rare first five appellations of this series which almost never appear on the market. The Faden sequence comprises a critical and fascinating series of historical documents regarding the political development of the United States, especially since each issue captures a distinct stage in America's process of transformative change. The present map depicts the United States' boundaries as having been settled by the Treaty of 1784, when in actuality it is referring to the settlement agreed to at the signing of the Treaty of Paris on September 3, 1783, which ended the Revolutionary War. This treaty did not actually come into force until April 1784. This map is based in part on John Mitchell's A MAP OF THE BRITISH AND FRENCH DOMINIONS IN NORTH AMERICA (1755) that was used by delegates during the treaty process. While the United States was granted a large territory from the Atlantic to the Mississippi River, and from the northern frontiers of Florida to the Canadian border, this map shows that the settled area of the nation was confined to the former Thirteen Colonies, and the two newly admitted states of Vermont (1791) and Kentucky (1792). Even then, the western boundaries of many of the states, past the Appalachians, are undefined. Although Washington, D.C. was in the process of being laid out, it was not yet built and is absent from the map. One of the most interesting aspects of the map is its labeling of "Franklinia" or the "New State of Franklin." This refers to an attempt by settlers in the Great Smoky Mountains to secede from North Carolina and to form a new state. From 1785 to 1789 seven of the states of the Union endorsed the plan, but it failed to achieve the required two-thirds support to be admitted as a state at the Constitutional Convention. Various lands in Kentucky and the future Tennessee are shown to be reserved for war veterans from "Virginia" and "North Carolina." Another curious appearance is the name of "Indiana" in what is now West Virginia, but nowhere near the future state of that name. Various areas in the southern Midwest are shown to be owned by private land development companies including the "Wabash" and "Ohio" companies. One such enterprise was headed by "Colonel Simmes" [sic], John Cleves Symmes (1742-1814), an eccentric New Jersey magistrate who later wrote a book which theorized that the interior of the earth was both hollow and inhabitable, and could be entered through the poles. In the same treaty Spain received possession of Florida from Britain, and the vast Louisiana Territory from France. In the north, although the treaty was supposed to have settled the boundary with Canada from the Great Plains to the Atlantic, a series of geographic misconceptions left the frontier in a nebulous state. Faden elected to present the extreme British conception of the border in northern Maine, and in the northwest the border was supposed to run west to the source of the Mississippi, when in reality the source was located well to the south. The map also features "The Twenty Leagues Line" located off of the east coast that marked the exclusive maritime jurisdiction of the United States. The composition is completed by an especially finely engraved and colored title cartouche which depicts scenes of commerce in the prosperous new nation.

        Cary's New and Correct English Atlas

      1793 - CARY, John. Cary's New and Correct English Atlas: Being a New Set of County Maps from Actual Surveys. London: John Cary, 1793. Large quarto, contemporary full brown tree calf reabcked, red morocco spine label, raised bands, original marbled endpapers. $3800.Second edition of Cary's "immensely popular" atlas of England and Wales, "the standard county atlas of the period," containing 46 lovely hand-colored maps, a very handsome copy in contemporary tree calf."John Cary was one of the most prolific, and by many considered to be the finest, of English map-makers. His work was of high standard, and in the many issues of his works he made constant additions and improvements, not only in his geographical data, but also in technical processes of printing" (Tooley, 57). "The quality of his engraving established new standards and a new style, with his effective, starkly beautiful, plain design being widely adopted… Particularly noteworthy are the immensely popular New and Correct English Atlas (editions from 1787), which became the standard county atlas of the period," among other works (DNB). "Impressive in their workmanship, remarkable for their accuracy and their clear, clean print, Cary's maps are brilliantly engraved and rank as the finest maps of the 19th century. From a visual, as distinct from a decorative point of view, they have not been surpassed" (Tooley, 71). "He may be counted as one of the greatest influences in British cartography since Saxton" (Lister, 43). First published in 12 parts from 1787-89. Shirley I:324.

Filson's account, like that of Imlay, is not altogether accurate, but it is important as the first history of Kentucky, the first account of Daniel Boone, and the first work to contain a map of Kentucky. In bringing together his own and Filson's narratives, and eventually adding the work of Hutchins, Imlay provides the most complete information on the trans-Allegheny region available at the end of the 18th century.

Scritta da GIO. BATISTA CLEMENTE DE NELLI... TWO VOLUME SET - Complete in These Two Volumes (Four Parts, in Two Volumes). Losanna (LAUSANNE) : 1793. Publisher unstated. FIRST EDITION. Contains the FIRST BIBLIOGRAPHY of the works of GALILEO. I collated these two volumes page-by-page with copies from the Rare Book Rooms of Harvard University, the University of Michigan, and Cambridge University. Two Hardcover Books, blue cloth covered boards, 7.5" x 10". Pagination: VOLUME I: Frontispiece, xvi Introductory pages, 471 Text pages (actually 467 pages because pagination skips to page 429 after page 424 - as normal - text flows correctly - collates correctly with rare copies at Harvard and Cambridge), + one blank. VOLUME II: [2], 471-961 pages. The two volumes are ILLUSTRATED with TEN (of TWELVE) plates, namely: 2 engraved frontispiece portraits of Galileo (one in each Volume), 7 (of 9) engraved plates, and 1 large folding genealogical chart / plate. Four of the original nine plates were fold-open, but 2 of those 4 (plates IX and X) are now lacking (being the 2 of 12 plates that are missing). CONDITION: The covers are soiled and worn, the blue cloth covering is rubbed, splotchy, split at the spine folds, worn through at the corners, and chipped away at the spine ends, nonetheless the covers are present and still bound well to the inner pages; there is a splattering of dark blue spots to the bottom page edges of Volume I and to the top page edges of Volume II (page edges of the closed books). Volume I has some old shorelining / water staining to the margins of various pages here and there throughout - nothing too significant except in the margins of a few pages where the margin soiling is heavy; overall the pages are in remarkably bright condition. Volume II has shorelining / water-staining to the upper margin area of the frontispiece and title-page; is missing the leaf that would be pages v/vi - consisting of a "Part Three" title-page and its blank verso (i.e. no text is missing); there is shorelining / light water-staining and soiling to the top blank margin of a number of pages here and there throughout - not affecting text; leaf consisting of pages 521/522 has a stiff crease that appears to be a binder's error (text is complete); there are wormholes / small worm lines to the bottom blank margin of the latter pages, not affecting text; the upper corner area of pages 951-960 is soiled and foxed; page 961 (the last page - the verso is blank) has its upper portion torn away, including approximately 3 lines of 2 column. The plates are all bright and clear, some with mild margin soiling and/or margin shorelining. The fold-open genealogical chart has some splitting at the folds and tearing near the gutter, but is overall solid, bright and clear. A SOLID SET of these TWO VOLUMES with 10 of 12 plates and only the faults as described above. The covers are worn, but internally both volumes are still tight, bright and clear.

      Boston, 1793. Modern blue paper wrappers. Minor paper loss to first and last leaf, not affecting text. Very minor soiling. Very good. In a blue cloth box, leather label. First separately published edition of this important Indian captivity narrative, providing a firsthand account of General St. Clair's defeat. Johonnet had recently served under generals Harmar and St. Clair in the western army's expeditions against the Indians in the Northwest Territory. He was captured on the banks of the Wabash River in August 1791 by a band of Kickapoo and taken to their camp on the Upper Miami, where he made a dramatic escape after witnessing the torture and deaths of his fellow soldiers. There were seven pamphlet editions published in 1793, of uncertain priority, and a chimerical 1791 Lexington edition; but Howes lists this Boston printing as the first pamphlet issue. This is the Frank Siebert copy.

Uitzonderlijk fraai handschrift met 188 grote afbeeldingen van mannen en vrouwen in zestiende eeuwse kledij van over de hele wereld, getekend met inkt en waterverf. Het werk is vervaardigd door Pierre Charles de Loose 1760-1841, deze was een van de bestuurders van de Koninklijke Academie voor Schone Kunsten in Ghent. Hij maakte dit werk in navolging op het kostuumboek van Jean Jacques Boissard, dat in 1581 gepubliceerd werd. De Loose heeft de prenten uit dit kostuumboek vergroot en deze elk op een apart blad afgebeeld. Het geheel bestaat uit een titelpagina, omlijst met een allegorische voorstelling met 4 vrouwen welke, Europa, Afrika, Azië en Amerika afbeelden, na de titelpagina volgt een portret van Jean Jacques Boissard en een opdracht/dedicatie gericht aan Claude Antoine de Vienne met 2 portretten van diens dochters, Nicole en Louise. Het voorwerk wordt gevolgd door 188 aquarellen met een onderschrift in het Latijn, Frans en Duits, geschreven met inkt. De aquarellen verbeelden personen met een hoge sociale status, zoals edelmannen en vrouwen en religieuze patriarchen, maar ook personen met een lage sociale status, zoals bedienden en artiesten. De prenten zijn gerangschikt op geografische volgorde en bevatten afbeeldingen van personen uit alle delen van de wereld. Het geheel is getekend op royaal, onafgesneden papier wat nog zeer fris en helder is, dit laat de prenten fraai en scherp uitkomen.) (titlepage, portrait, dedication with 2 portraits) 188 folia. Contemporary half Leather with 7 raised bands, large Folio H. 49,5 L. 31 x W. 5 cm. (near the edges slightly grazed, especially at the top of the spine. Exceptionally beautiful manuscript with 188 large figures of men and women in sixteenth century costumes from around the world, drawn with ink and watercolour. The work is made by Pierre Charles de Loose 1760-1841, he was one of the directors of the Académie Royale de Dessin (Koninklijke Academie voor Schone Kunsten) at Ghent. He made this work after the costume book by Jean Jacques Boissard, which was published in 1581. De Loose enlarged the figures from this costume book and displayed them on seperate leaves. The work contains a titlepage, framed with an allegorical scene with 4 females representing Europe, Africa, Asia and the Americas, after the titlepage follows a portrait of Jean Jacques Boissard and a dedication to Claude Antoine de Vienne with 2 portraits of his daughters, Nicole and Louise. The preliminary pages are followed by 188 watercolour drawings with captions in Latin, French and German, written with ink. The watercolour drawings portray persons with a high social status, such as noblemen and women and religious patriarchs, but also persons with a lower social status, such as servants and performers. The prints are arranged in a geographical order and contain images of figures from around the world. The work is drawn on royal, untrimmed paper which is still fresh and bright, therefore the images look beautiful and sharp.).

        Cornelii Nepotis vitae excellentium imperatorum, quorumdam iconibus ornatae, et nonnullis animadversionibus partim criticis, partim historicis inlustratae ab Augustino van Staveren. Editio altera.

      Leiden (Lugduni Batavorum), Apud S. et J. Luchtmans, 1793. - 12mo. (XIV including frontispiece),434, (72) p.; 7 small engraved portraits in the text. Later half calf 12.5 cm (Ref: cf. Schweiger 2,302; cf Brunet 2,289) (Details: Back ruled blind and gilt. Marbled endpapers. Frontispiece, depicting Clio with a pen in her hand, she receives advice from Kronos, who holds a scythe, a winged Fama blows her trumpet. Seven small engraved portraits in the text) (Condition: Binding scuffed. Some pencil notes. Lower margin of the title cut short, with loss of part of the impressum) (Note: This is an edition with commentary of the only surviving complete work of the Roman historian Cornelius Nepos, ca. 100-24 B.C., 'De excellentibus ducibus exterrarum gentium', the first surviving ancient collection of biographies. 'De excellentibus etc.' contains the lives of 20 Greek generals, and the Carthaginians Hamilkar and Hannibal. Nepos corresponded with Cicero and was close with Cicero's friend Atticus. The collection served probably as a model for Plutarch's Vitae Parallelae. In his own days and in late antiquity Nepos was considered to be a source of importance. The churchfather Hieronymus, included him as great historian in his 'De viris illustribus' (392 A.D.). The simple style of writing of Nepos has made him a standard choice for schools. The biographies provided the pupils also models of behaviour. Schweiger mentions numerous editions. This edition was compiled by the Dutch schoolmaster Augustinus van Staveren, 1704-1772, who was appointed in 1750 Rector of the Schola Latina at Leyden. He produced during his career two editions of Nepos, a learned 'editio maior', a stout octavo of 765 p. 'cum notis Variorum suisque', which was first published in 1734 (second edition 1773). In 1755 he produced at the request of the publishing firm Luchtmans an 'editio minor', a small but thick duodecimo 'cum notis A. van Staveren'. The first one, of 1734, is a socalled 'Variorum' edition. Such editions' offer usually the 'textus receptus' which is widely accepted, accompanied with the commentary and the annotations of specialists, taken from earlier useful, normative or renewing editions. Editions like these, 'cum notis Variorum', were useful, but never broke new ground. The production of this kind of editions was the specialty of Dutch scholars of the 17th and 18th century. The compilers seldom were great scholars, but often hard working schoolmasters. Van Staveren's 'editio minor' of 1755 was repeated in 1793. The minor edition left out the learned commentaries, but offered a revised text accompanied by critical and historical notes of Van Staveren, which often contain material found by him in Greek sources. (Van der Aa, 17,2 p. 966/67) The frontispiece and the engravings in the text have a long history. The copper plates for them were first used in 1658. They were used again in editions of 1675, 1687, 1704 (?), 1705, 1728, 1734, 1773 and finally here in 1793) (Provenance: in pencil on the verso of the front flyleaf: 'A. Roozendaal, 1944'. We found one 'A. Roozendaal, Amersfoort' in the tabula gratulatoria of the Festschrift 'Studia varia Carolo Guilielmo Vollgraff a discipulis oblata', Amsterdam 1948, p. 194. After we had found this, a small receipt ticket of a restaurant in Amersfoort, dated 20/3/55, fell out of this book; at the back a note on Van Staveren, apparantly made the same Roozendaal, now an elderly person; A. Roozendaal was probably a student of C.W. Vollgraff, professor of Greek and Archaeology of the University at Utrecht.

        Faunae Insectorum Germanicae Initia oder Deutschlands Insecten.

      - Nürnberg, in der Felseckerschen Buchhandlung, 1793-1813. 110 parts, loose in old wrappers and preserved in 9 boxes. Oblong small-8vo (125 x 95mm). With 2640 beautifully handcoloured engraved plates, each plate with descriptive text. The attractive uniform boxes, with gilt ornamented and lettered spines and marbled sides are of a later date. An attractive set of all that was published by Panzer, of the most beautiful miniature entomological work ever published. Panzer published parts 1-109 and the final part of this set was published by Geyer. The splendid illustrations are of an unsurpassed beauty and exactness. Georg Wolfgang Franz Panzer (1755-1829) was a German entomologist; regional physician in Hersbruck near Nuremberg and lecturer at the Collegium Medicum in Nuremberg. "There does not exist a more accurate or useful work. The figures are drawn and etched by the famous Sturm, the best entomological artist on the continent; . while the descriptions, although frequently too short, are written by hand of a master. The system of Fabricius is followed and the work altogether is highly essential to every one who writes upon the entomology of Europe" (Swainson).A continuation to Panzer's work was published by Herrich-Schaeffer and is very scarce due to a decreasing number of subscribers."Die alte bayrische Schule der naturwissenschaftliche Illustrationen hat sich unsterbliche Verdienste besonders um die Entomologie erworben. Sie hat die schönsten Abbildungswerke dieser Wissenschaft geliefert" (Junk. Rara II, p. 142).Jacob Sturm (1771-1848) was born in Nürnberg. His father Johann Georg Sturm was an engraver. Jacob Sturm was the editor and illustrator of several natural history works such as his 'Deutschlands Flora in Abbildungen nach der Natur mit Beschreibungen'. Apart from this he illustrated a great number of the finest natural history works published at that period in South Germany.Added to the series are:The original backcovers bound in brown half morocco of all the 110 parts with the printed names of the insects contained in each part.The 'Catalogus systematicus' by Panzer of parts 1-108 'Index systematicus methodo Fabriciana', Nürnberg 1793-1809.Saunders, E.

        The Botanical Magazine; or, Flower-Garden displayed: in which the most ornamental foreign plants, cultivated in the open ground, the green-house, and the stove, are accurately represented in their natural colours.

      - London, S. Couchman, 1793-1814. 40 volumes, bound in 20. 8vo (235 x 140mm). With 1684 fine hand-coloured engraved plates. Contemporary uniform red half morocco, richly gilt spines, marbled sides. An attractive uniformly bound set of the early years of this famous and beautifully illustrated magazine. The magazine has continued publication almost without interruption to the present day and has become a national institute of which Englishmen may justly be proud. It should be noted that the colouring of the earlier volumes, as offered above, is far superior to the later ones. "It is, indeed, the oldest current scientific periodical of its kind with coloured illustrations in the world, and in the beauty of production and high standard of its contributions it can claim a unique place" (Henry II, p. 302). Title pages to volumes 6 to 10 have been discarded by the binder, who got confused as there are 2 volumes, each with a title-page, bound in one. Added to the set the Index to vols. 1-53. The first 5 volumes are in a slightly later (identical) issue as the edition of the first 5 volumes was too low and quickly sold out. William Curtis (1746-1799) was a famous English botanist and is best known for his splendid 'Flora Londinensis' and 'The Botanical magazine'. The noted natural history illustrators, James Sowerby and Sydenham Edwards both found a start with the eminent magazine. The genus Curtisia is named in his honour.Stafleu & Cowan 1290; Nissen BBI, 2350. [Attributes: Soft Cover]
