        World, rare 18th century wall map.

      ?A General Map of the World or Terraqueous Globe, with all the New Discoveries and Marginal Delineations, Containing the Most Interesting Particulars in the Solar, Starry and Mundane Systems . . . 1794??.Drawn in London by Thomas Dunn based on earlier cartographic research by J. B. B. D'Anville. Published by Laurie and Whittle as plate nos. 1-2 in the 1797 edition of Thomas Kitchin's General Atlas. Size: 106,7 x 124,5 cm.Beautiful double hemisphere wall map of the world, embellished with a number of different Celestial Models. The map was revised several times to include the discoveries of Captain Cook?s 3 voyages. The general outline of North America is known in 1794. However, few inland expeditions had extended westward beyond the Mississippi. The map notes two separate speculative courses for the mythical River of the West, a northern route extending from Lake Winnipeg and a southern route passing south of Winnepeg through Pike's lake. South America exhibits a typically accurate coastline and limited knowledge of the interior beyond Peru and the populated coastlands. A few islands are noted off the coast, including the Galapagos, which are referred to as the Inchanted Islands. The Amazon is vague with many of its tributaries drawn in speculatively. In Africa we also find the coasts well defined but a vague interior. The Nile River follows the Ptolemaic course with a presumed source in two lakes at the base of the "Mountains of the Moon". Asia is exceptionally well mapped reflecting the most recent information available in Europe. Australia appears in full as New Holland or Terra Australis. Numerous points along the coast are named with associated notes regarding the activities of various explorers. Van Diemen's Land or Tasmania is curiously attached to the mainland - an error that many earlier maps had long ago corrected. There is little trace of either Antarctica or the Great Southern continent.Price: ?4.500,- (excl. BTW/VAT).

        Indonesia, Strait of Bali - Laurie and Whittle, 1794.

      INDONESIA NAUTICAL CHART?A New Plan of the Straits Situated to the East of Java & Madura commonly called The Straits of Bali and of Pondi and Respondi.? Copper engraving from ?The East-India Pilot, or Oriental Navigator? published in London by Robert Laurie and James Whittle in 1794. Coloured by a later hand. Size approx. 35, 6 x 50,8 cm.Nautical chart of the Strait of Bali, Indonesia, from Java?s eastern extension to include the western half of Bali and the islands of Madura and Respondi (Sapudi). An inset near the left border details Java?s Bay of Ballambouang. Java was a major producer of rice during the colonial era. Madura and most of Java was under the influence of the Dutch during this period.The map offers rich detail including countless depth soundings, notes on the sea floor, commentary on reefs, rhumb lines, shoals, coastal features, place names and a wealth of other practical information for the mariner. Cartographically this chart is derived from earlier maps prepared for Jean-Baptiste d?Apres de Mannevillette?s 1745 Neptune Oriental. De Manevillette based his chart, as noted under the title, on ?observations and remarks of the English Ships; the Winchelsea, commanded by the learned Mr. Howe, from whose surveys the Plan of the Eastern Part of Madura, and the Straits has been delineated; the Chesterfield in 1760; the Royal George in 1766; and of the French Ships, l?Elephant, and le Chameau, 1759: agreeable also with the remarks made by the English Ships, Onslow, Triton, Sandwich, Osterley, in 1758; Tavistock and Hawke in 1759?.Price: ?975,- (excl. VAT/BTW).

Kopergravure vervaardigd door Thomas Jefferys uitgegeven door Laurie & Whittle te Londen 1794. Later met de hand gekleurd. Afm. 46,2 x 61,5 cm.Kaart van Cura?o, met rechts een inzet van een plattegrond van Fort Amsterdam gelegen aan de Sint Annabaai.

Aangegeven zijn ook de plantages, zoutpannen, bronnen en vegetatie.Deze kaart verscheen in ?The West-India Atlas?? met 41 kaarten en 27 pagina?s tekst.Jefferys was een van de belangrijkste Engelse uitgevers van kaarten in de 18de eeuw. Hij vervaardigde kaarten van de gehele wereld, maar zijn beste werk is van Noord-Amerika en West-Indi?. Hij begon zijn carri?re in de kaarten handel in de vroege jaren 1730, hij was werkzaam als graveur voor verschillende Londense uitgevers en begon uiteindelijk zijn eigen winkel. In 1746 werd hij benoemd tot geograaf van de Prince of Wales en werd in 1760 geograaf aan de Koning. Daarmee kreeg hij toegang tot de manuscripten en cartografische informatie in het bezit van de Engelse marine. Begin jaren 1760 begon hij aan een ambitieus project om op basis van nieuw onderzoek van een reeks Engelse graafschappen kaarten te produceren, maar het geld raakte op en zijn faillissement volgde in 1766. Hij werkte vervolgens samen met de Londense uitgever Robert Sayer, die veel van Jefferys' platen tot na zijn dood in 1771 opnieuw uitgaven. Dit exemplaar komt uit een atlas weer iets later uitgegeven door Laurie & Whittle.Jefferys maakte deze kaart naar voorbeeld van Gerard van Keulen, die in 1728 zijn ?Nieuwe Afteekening van het Eyland Curacao?? had gemaakt.Prijs: ?4.150,- (incl. lijst).

        Indonesia, Strait of Sunda or Batavia - Laurie and Whittle, 1794.

      INDONESIA NAUTICAL CHART?A New Chart for Sailing between the Straits of Sunda or Batavia and the Straits of Banca and Gaspar.? Copper engraving from ?The East-India Pilot, or Oriental Navigator? published in London by Robert Laurie and James Whittle in 1794. Coloured by a later hand. Size: 50,8 x 68,6 cm.Nautical chart of northwestern Java and eastern Sumatra, including the Straits of Sunda and the Strait of Banca. The map covers from the Strait of Banca southwards to the Krakatoa volcano, the east as far as Batavia (Jakarta). Throughout the 17th and 18th centuries, this region was a major battleground between rival Dutch, British, and Portugese trading monopolies. The Dutch and British in particular contested over northwestern Java, with its easy access to regional spice, in particular pepper, ports. In 1602 the British East India Company established a trade entrepot at Bantam to contest the Dutch East India Company (VOC) in nearby Batavia. The Dutch, allied with a local Sultan, eventually drove the English out of Bantam and Java itself. By the end of the 18th century, when this map was made, the Bantam entrepot was little more than a name on a map - as seen here - while Batavia further east had risen, with a population of nearly one million, to dominate Java. In 1800, just six years after this map was published, the VOC was formally dissolved and the Dutch East Indies established in its place as a full-fledged national colonial venture. The British meanwhile established themselves in Bencoolen, on Sumatra, and later in Singapore and Malacca.Cartographically this chart is derived from earlier maps prepared for Jean-Baptiste d?Apres de Mannevillette?s 1745 Neptune Oriental. It was subsequently updated and revised under Laurie and Whittle based on charts compiled by Captain Lestock Williams. The map offers rich detail including countless depth soundings, notes on the sea floor, commentary on reefs, rhumb lines, shoals, place names and a wealth of other practical information for the mariner.Price: ?975,- (excl. VAT/BTW).

He may have had difficulty in composing to words in a language which he was far from mastering; but the character of the songs is different and the musical setting clearly more ambitious.

        The natural history of British birds; or, a selection of the most rare, beautiful, and interesting birds which inhabit this country.

      London For The Author -1819 1794 - First edition. 10 volumes, 8vo., 244 hand-coloured engraved plates after and by the author, contemporary sprinkled calf gilt,neat repairs to joints as required, a very attractive set. Born in Cork, Ireland, Donovan (1768-1837) was an avid collector of natural history specimens purchased mainly at auctions of specimens from voyages of exploration. He was a Fellow of the Linnean Society and the Wernerian Natural History Society which gave him access to the best collections and libraries in London. It was quite common for private collectors to open small public museums, and in 1807 he founded the London Museum and Institute of Natural History. This exhibited several hundred cases of world birds, mammals, reptiles, fish, molluscs, insects, corals and other invertebrates and botanical specimens and other exotica alongside his British collections. The present title was Donovan's first publication and is largely based upon specimens in his own collection and the Lever Museum.

      1794 - explaining that, had Harcourt been with the Army, he would not have given consent to "Hawkins' expedition to England, which cou'd serve no good purpose", but which "makes it necessary for you to forego your wishes of coming here, more especially as the embarkation takes place on Friday next", as to promotion, "I have it in contemplation to propose you for my second Majority, whenever you can arrange the money part of the business", and recommending him to write "to Sr. Wm. Lee upon the subject without loss of time", Harcourt has written to Sir William "respecting the payment of that part of your outfit which he engaged for", telling Sir William that by promotion Captain Lee had realized "a Commission . worth 3000 Guineas", but that Harcourt "had every reason to be satisfied with your good conduct", on the other hand "the peculiar situation of my Regiment makes it absolutely necessary for me to look for a more experienced Officer, one better acquainted with Regimental details whenever the whole of the business is brought forward", assuring him that "I will not forget your friend Butler for a Colonelcy, tho' my first object must be to provide for Bennet", given the latter's "attention to his duty and attachment to the Regiment . I shall hope to be with you in a few days", and ending "Yours sincerely and affectionately", 5 sides 4to, address panel on side 6, London, 10th March no year but apparently address panel dusty and blank outer edge creased with a portion caught by the seal on opening, two closed tears at folds, but address panel perfectly legible and without loss From 1779 till his death, William Harcourt was Colonel of the 16th Light Dragoons (The Queen's Lancers), a regiment his father had raised as Harcourt's Black Horse. With them in America in 1776, he led the cavalry charge at White Plains (28th October) and on 13th December he surprised and captured Charles Lee, one of the ablest American generals. In Flanders, 1793-1794, he commanded the British Cavalry, and the whole Army during the winter retreat into Germany. For his leadership at the battle of Willems, 10th May 1794, the Duke of York presented him with his own sword. After the Duke's departure, in December 1794, he was again in command of the British troops. In 1802 he became the first Governor of the Royal Military College, then at Great Marlow.

Die erste Veröffentlichung war als "Allgemeines Gesetzbuch für die Preußischen Staaten" 1791-1792 erschienen, wurde aber noch vor Inkrafttreten aufgrund der freiheitlichen Grundtendenz des Gesetzbuches vom König suspendiert. Nach Veränderung der kritisierten Stellen wurde das Gesetzeswerk dann in der hier vorliegenden Form erstmals publiziert. Die Bezeichnung "Zweyte Auflage" bezieht sich auf die Fassung 1791/1792. Das preußische Landrecht blieb bis zur Einführung des Bürgerlichen Gesetzbuches im Jahre 1900 geltendes Recht. "Das preußische Landrecht umfaßt in seinen zwei Teilen das gesamte Privatrecht, Staatsrecht, Kirchenrecht und Strafrecht. Nach Vornahme einiger unbedeutenden Abänderungen wurde das Gesetzbuch durch Patent vom 5. Febr. 1794 als "Allgemeines Landrecht für die preußischen Staaten" mit Gesetzeskraft vom 1. Juni 1794 an publiziert. . Das preußische Landrecht gilt in den östlichen Provinzen der Monarchie, mit Ausnahme von Neuvorpommern und Rügen, in der Provinz Westfalen und in den Kreisen Rees, Essen und Duisburg der Rheinprovinz sowie in den vor 1815 preußisch gewesenen Teilen der Provinz Hannover (Ostfriesland, Niederlingen und Eichsfeld). Außerdem hat es in den fränkischen Fürstentümern Ansbach und Bayreuth und in den ehemals Erfurtischen Gebietsteilen Sachsen-Weimars seine Geltung bewahrt sowie in den Konsulargerichtsbezirken.

        Die Villa des Brutus in Tivoli, 1794

      - Technik: Radierung auf Papier. Beschriftung: in der Platte signiert, datiert und bezeichnet: "A. C. Dies fece Roma 1794" und bezeichnet: "Avanzi della Villa di M. Bruto a Tivoli". Werkverzeichnis: Andresen III, Nr. 19, Fichter Nr. 62. Serie: Mahlerisch radirte Prospecte von Italien (Heft 8), von Johann Christian Reinhart, Jakob Wilhelm Mechau und Albert Christoph Dies. Grösse: 24,5 x 35 cm (Darstellung). Weitere Größen: 39,1 x 49,3 cm (Papier). 27,7 x 37,4 cm (Plattenmaß). Zustand: Sehr guter Zustand. Auf dem Rand schwach verfärbt und berieben. Mittig etwas wellig. Vereinzelt sind kurze, restaurierte Randeinrisse sichtbar. Beschreibung: Der aus Hannover stammende Landschaftsmaler Albrecht Christoph Dies wird oft als Autodidakt bezeichnet, der sich ohne akademische Künstlerausbildung der Malerei zuwandte. 1775 beschloss er, im Alter von 20 Jahren, nach einer rudimentären Ausbildung bei einem unbekannten Maler, offenbar „spontan" (Schmid 1998, S.162) seine Wanderschaft im deutschsprachigen Gebiet nach Italien auszuweiten. Noch im selben Jahr ließ er sich in Rom nieder und verdingte sich mit dem Kolorieren von Stichen in den namhaften römischen Vedutenwerkstätten Piranesi sowie Durcos und Volpato. Gelegenheitsarbeiten wie das Kopieren beliebter Künstler schulten ihn weiter in der Malerei und schärften sein Auge für die Landschaftsbilder von Jacob Philipp Hackert. Dessen Vorstellung von realistischen Landschaftsporträts verfolgte Dies auch in den hier gezeigten Radierungen. Den Bildausschnitt bewusst pittoresk gewählt, war es dem Künstler doch vor allen Dingen wichtig, Landschaft und Architektur präzise nachzubilden, also beinahe zu porträtieren. Die romantische und malerische Stimmung, die sowohl die von der Natur überwucherten Tonnengewölbe der Villa des Brutus in Tivoli, als auch die gewaltigen, gischtsprühenden Kaskaden der Wasserfälle an der Villa Gregoriana bei Tivoli ausstrahlen, steht also in keinem der beiden Fälle entgegen dem tatsächlichen Blick des Künstlers. Vielmehr liegt der besondere Reiz dieser Darstellungen darin, dass sie vor Ort nach der Natur gezeichnet und von Dies selbst auf die Kupferplatte übertragen wurden. Lediglich die Staffage aus Tieren und Menschen, die den Bildern ihre Lebendigkeit geben, sind frei erfunden und gezielt eingesetzt worden. Von besonderem Interesse sind nicht zuletzt die Darstellungen der Botanik und der geologischen Begebenheiten. Durch den Aufschwung der Naturwissenschaften zum Ende des 18. Jahrhunderts geprägt, entwickelten auch die bildenden Künstler ein Bewusstsein für die akkurate Wiedergabe von Tieren, Pflanzen und Gestein sowie die Ästhetik des natürlich Nachgebildeten. Marcus Brutus war Jurist in Rom. Seine Villa, von Cicero im 2. Buch von "De Oratore" erwähnt, liegt an der Straße nach San Gregorio am Südhang von Tivoli. Es handelt sich um einen Gesamtpreis inkl. Versandkosten innerhalb der BRD. Umsatzsteuer wird wegen Differenzbesteuerung nach §25a UstG weder erhoben noch ausgewiesen. Zustand: Sehr guter Zustand. Auf dem Rand schwach verfärbt und berieben. Mittig etwas wellig. Vereinzelt sind kurze, restaurierte Randeinrisse sichtbar. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        Instruction sur l'établissement des nitrières et sur la fabrication du salpêtre

Imprimé par ordre du Comité de Salut Public. à Villefranche imp. Pinet, an II, (1794) de 7pp., - Suivi de : Lavoisier (Ant. L.), B. G. Sage & (Léon) de Perthuis L'art de fabriquer le salin et la potasse, suivi des expériences sur les moyens de multiplier la fabrication de la potasse... pour faire suite à l'ouvrage intitulé : Instruction sur l'établissement des Nitrières & sur la fabrication du Salpêtre. P. chez Cuchet, an II, (1794) de VIII-106pp., ill. de 4 planches gravées se dépl. et un tableau dépl., le tout relié en 1 vol. pl. veau marbré époque, dos orné. Bel exemplaire Important recueil consacré au salpêtre pour la poudre des armes à feu. Avant la Révolution, plus de la moitié du salpêtre employé en France provenait d'Inde via des importateurs anglais. Du fait du blocus, cette source était désormais impossible. De fait la production nationale de salpêtre, principalement d'Anjou, va ainsi passer en 1794 de 4 millions de livres obtenus par la Régie à près de 18 millions. A partir de 1776 Lavoisier, premier régisseur des poudres et salpêtres, occupe des appartements dans l'hôtel des Régisseurs au Petit Arsenal. Il y a aménagé sous les combles un vaste laboratoire, l'un des mieux équipés d'Europe. "L'instruction" de Lavoisier avait d'abord paru en 1777, mais elle était rarissime et introuvable comme le stipule la préface "... il est même douteux que cette instruction ait été répandue: nous sommes d'autant plus porté à le croire qu'elle est très rare; elle n'existoit pas même à la Bibliothèque nationale il y a quelques mois...". ¶ Duveen & Klickstein n°208 "This is an octavo reissue (1794) of the original quarto edition published 17 years earlier (1777).." - n°214 "The first part of this work is actually a reissue of the complete 1779 text of l'art de fabriquer le Salin et la Potasse (by Lavoisier)... added to this are an account of experiments made by Pertuis... Credit for the entire wrok, probably, has to be givent to Lavoisier." - Martin & Walter IV2. 7776 (anonyme) - I. 1661 (Barère) - "L'intruction sur l'existence du salpêtre" n'est pas dans Martin & Walter, et le cat. CCFR ne signale que 4 ex. d'impressions provinciales, mais pas cette édition de Villefranche.
