        BLACKGUARDIANA

      1795. [CAULFIELD, James]. BLACKGUARDIANA: or, a Dictionary of Rogues, Bawds, Pimps, Whores, Pickpockets, Shoplifters, Mail-robbers, Coiners, House- breakers, Murderers, Pirates, Gipsies, Mountebanks, &c. &c. Illustrated with eighteen Portraits of the most remarkable Professors in every Species of Villainy. Interspersed with many curious Anecdotes, Cant Terms, Flash Songs, &c. The whole intended to put Society on their guard against Depredators; and was picked up by an Inhabitant of St. James's, who was a Spectator of a grand Scuffle, on a Birth-day Night. Copied for the Inspection of the Curious; and the Original ready to be returned (on describing the Binding, etc.) to the Loser. [London?] Printed for, and sold by John Shepherd, at the Golden Farmer, Bagshot; Sir John Falstaff, at the Boar's-head, Finchley-Common; Sir Henry Morgan, at the Land- Pirates, Hounslow; [etc., etc. 1793? 1795?]. The imprint listing notorious criminals as publishers/booksellers is fun but of necessity false, because this is a pirated reprint of the first edition of Francis Grose's "Classical Dictionary of the Vulgar Tongue" printed at London, 1785. (The title is even used as a heading on two pages early in the text!) It is attributed to James Caulfield (1764-1826), a London author and printseller specializing in old English engravings and in portraits. He helped to feed the fashion for `grangerizing' or pasting extra illustrations into historical or topographical books, republishing many old plates and copying many old prints when the originals were too rare or too valuable to supply in quantity. Octavo, 21.5 x 13 cm, mostly unpaginated: [2], vii, [241] pp. Extra-illustrated, with a total of 41 prints bound- or tipped- in, many published by Caulfield and dated 1793 or 1794, plus one drawing. The prints show scoundrels of both sexes, some more grotesque than others. The composition of the wash drawing is the same as "The Bagpiper," an oil painting by David Teniers the Younger in the Louvre, only reduced in size. "Original sketch by Teniers?" is written tentatively in pencil beneath the drawing but, perhaps, it is a faithful copy. The text is arranged alphabetically as one would expect in a dictionary, but with some surprising entries. For instance, there is a series of mostly crim

Signed ""David Brown."" John Jay was the first Chief Justice of the Supreme Court from October 19, 1789 to June 29, 1795, when he resigned to become Governor of New York, serving from July 1, 1795, to June 30, 1801. On December 18, 1800, President John Adams renominated the 55-year-old Governor as Chief Justice. He was confirmed by the Senate the next day, but he declined, citing his own poor health and the court's lack of ""the energy, weight and dignity which are essential to its affording due support to the national government."" Adams then nominated his second choice, John Marshall. Jay also declined renomination as Governor in 1801. He remained in good health, continued to farm, and stayed out of politics. John Jay died in 1829 at the age of 83."

        The Papilios of Great Britain, systematically arranged, accurately engraved, and painted from naure, with the Natual History of each species,

      London : J Johnson, 1795 A very good copy of this scarce title, with 46 superb hand coloured plates. William Lewin (1747-1795) intended this work to be the first volume of a series entitled 'The Insects of Great Britain'. However he died in 1795 after completing it. The first issue has a title page reflecting the series - this volume is a second issue as the publishers changed the title page to 'Papilios' to make this a volume on butterflies complete in itself. The text pages retain 'Vol I' at the bottom and the only other change is that this issue finishes 'The End', whereas the first issue has 'End of Vol I'. Bound in later half morocco and buckram binding with gilt decoration and titles to spine. Title pages and text are in both english and french. The plates are bound slightly out of order - with plate 6 after 7 and 8, and 28 before 24. The binding has a sunned spine and a small mark at the side of the spine. There is a little wear to edges.The endpapers have a little spotting and there is light brown toning to text pages which have untrimmed edges - text page 31 has a particularly ragged edge. The plates are spectacular in their detail - plate 7 has some spotting but the others are very clean and beautifully coloured. Text pp 6-97; index 2pp; index to latin names 1p. Please enquire if you would like to see more images or would like to discuss the condition of the book.

        Ideale Landschaft mit steiler Felswand, Wasserfall und Monument, rechts am Ufer zwei lagernde Figuren.

      - Feder in Braun, braun laviert, über Feder in Schwarz, mit Tuschlinie umrandet, auf Bütten mit Wasserzeichen: J Honig & Zoonen. 28,5:43 cm. - Mit leichtem Lichtrand ringsum, kleinere Schäden sehr sorgsam restauriert. Entstanden wohl um 1795/1800. Hier handelt es sich um eine meisterhafte und bildmäßig durchgeführte Landschaftskomposition, in recht großem Format. Provenienz: vermutl. Sammlung C. Wiesböck, Wien, vgl. Lugt 2576, von diesem verso bezeichnet &#132;Franz Kobel gez.". Nach einer Ausbildung zum Kaufmann in Mainz kehrte Franz Kobell 1762 in seine Geburtsstadt Mannheim zurück, wo er von seinem Bruder Ferdinand (1740-1799) auch künstlerisch unterstützt wurde. 1771-1778 bildete er sich zusätzlich an der Mannheimer Zeichnungsakademie aus. 1778 erhielt er von Kurfürst Karl Theodor von der Pfalz eine Pension, die ihm eine Reise nach Italien ermöglichte, wo er sich hauptsächlich in Rom aufhielt. Hier war er insbesondere dem Maler F. Müller (1749-1825), dem Dichter W. Heise und dem Bildhauer A. Trippel (1744-1793) freundschaftlich verbunden. Die Beschäftigung mit der Malerei N. Poussins (1594-1665) und Cl. Lorrains (1600-1682) hatte großen Einfluß auf sein späteres Werk; er wandte sich ganz und gar der Landschaftskunst zu. Bereits 1780 wurde er zum Hofmaler am 1778 nach München verlegten Mannheimer Hof ernannt. 1784 kehrte er aus Italien nah München zurück. Ab 1793 lebte er in Wohngemeinschaft mit seinem Bruder Ferdinand und seinem Neffen Wilhelm von Kobell (1766-1853) in München. Der zeichnerische Nachlaß des Künstlers wird auf mehr als 10.000 Blatt geschätzt.

      Paris: Lamarche An III = 1795 - Kl.-Folio, 9 S. (gestoch. Text) u. 53 doppelblattgr. Karten. Mod. HLdr. (Exemplar mit Gebrauchsspuren, doch in passabler Erhaltung, einige wenige zeitgenöss. Randbemerkungen, im breiten Rand gelegentlich wasserrandig). * Phillips 3528; Lex. Gesch. d. Kartographie II,676f.; vgl. Tooley S. 541 (1. Ausg. 1748); Sponberg-Pedley: Bel et Utile p. 231 (not mentioning this edition!). Mit hübschem gestoch. Titel m. breiter allegor. Bordüre sowie von Putten gehaltener Weltkarte (Barrier sc.). Lamarche hatte die Karten für diesen Jugendatlas von Robert de Vaugondy übernommen, korrigiert u. seine Verlagsadresse hinzugefügt. Die Kartenstecher: Dien, Dussy, Arrivet, Blondeau. Die Karten meist breitrandig, häufig datiert 1795 oder An III, zeigen mehrere Weltkarten (differenziert nach Religionen, Hautfarbe, Figur der Menschen, z.B. visages plats, yeux ovales, visages d'ours), Kirchengeschichte (2), weiterhin Kontinente, europäische u. außereurop. Länder, jeweils mit hübscher Rokoko-Kartusche. Der Atlas vermittelt das Bild der im späten 18. Jh. bekannten Welt, meist mit leichtem Grenzkolorit der Karten. Didier Robert de Vaugondy (1723-1786) veröffentlichte seine ersten Karten bereits mit 19 Jahren. Gemeinsam mit seinem Vater schuf er den "Atlas portatif". Trotz beträchtlicher Auflagenhöhen und staatlicher Zuschüsse hatte R. de V. mit erheblichen Finanzproblemen zu kämpfen: 1778 verkaufte er seinen Fundus an J. Fortin, einen Globen-. und Instrumentenbauer, dessen Geschäft dann 1784 an C. F. de La Marche (Delamarche) überging. Von diesem wurden die Karten der Familie R. de V. bis weit ins 19. Jahrhundert verkauft. Uncommon edition of this attractive atlas containing i.a. one world map in double hemisphere and 3 thematic world maps, 5 maps relating to the Americas, 7 to France, 6 to Germany, 5 to Asia, 4 to the Holy Land, 3 to Africa.

        Essais sur la peinture.

Edition originale de la premiere publication de librairie des ecrits esthetiques de Diderot, par Francois Buisson, imprimeur-libraire, probablement d'apres les manuscrits provenant de la bibliotheque de Grimm. Le recueil contient des articles donnes pour la 'Correspondance litteraire' de 1766, distribues en sept chapitres, suivi des "Observations sur le salon de peinture de 1765". Les 'Essais' furent rapidement traduits et diffuses en Allemagne. Goethe, puis Schiller, decouvrirent le texte de Diderot des 1796. "Metier d'ecrivain, metier de peintre, le texte de Diderot va de l'un a l'autre. Il ne lui suffit plus de regarder, de decrire, de penser, de juger, il va experimenter la peinture par l'ecriture dans sa capacite a rendre le visible ( ). Il fait entrer l'ecriture dans le tableau, et pas par la petite porte" (Pierre Lepape). (Adams, EF1. Tchemerzine-Scheler, II, 964)..

        An Address to bankers, Merchants, Tradesmen, &c. Intended as an Introduction to a new system of Book-Keeping, in which it is impossible for an Error of the most trifling amount to be passed unnoticed; and that is calculated effectually to prevent the Evils attendant on the present Methods by Single and Double Entry

      London: Printed by H. Fry, and sold by W. Richardson, and T. Longman; also by R. Edwards, Bristol, and all other Booksellers in Town and Country,, 1795. Duodecimo in 6s (143 x 86 mm), pp. 33. Stab sewn as issued. Housed in a black cloth flat back box. Complete with the final blank leaf. Pen trial to first leaf, contemporary ownership inscription to final blank leaves. Closed tear to penultimate leaf just entering text but without loss. Upper outer corner of final blank leaf torn away; a very good copy. An unrecorded issue of the prospectus for E. T. Jones's work on book-keeping, one of three printings in 1795, the other two printed in Bristol, which is where Jones practised as an accountant. This Address, the half-title to which reads "Twenty Minutes useful Consideration for the Man of Business", is actually a lengthy prospectus for a longer work on book-keeping which Jones planned for the following year; this duly appeared as Jones's English system of book-keeping by single and double entry, for which he was able to attract more than 4000 subscribers. Jones patented a hybrid system that attempted to combine the simplicity of single entry book-keeping with the arithmetic checks on accuracy provided by the double-entry system. His claim that the system was infallible was contested however, and he was the object of several attacks by contemporary proponents of the Italian system. Although his system was never adopted, his 1796 work was undoubtedly the first English work on accounting to achieve international renown; it was immediately republished in America, and translated into German, Dutch, Danish, French, Italian and Russian. Jones made important contributions to book-keeping, advocating the use of tabular account books, subsidiary ledgers, control accounts, and other devices designed to save labour and to adapt Pacioli's fifteenth-century Italian system to the demands of the nineteenth century.

A. von Stiernman's collection which was inherited by Celsius through marriage. This is one of the more important book collections which has been sold at auction in Sweden, although Celsius already had donated significant parts of his library to various public institutions. His valuable collection of manuscripts was for example given to Uppsala University Library. Olof Celsius (1716-94) was a versatile and talented man who after studies at Uppsala University first became assistant professor in literary history. He later worked at the university library and eventually became professor of history in Uppsala. He was ordained in 1751 after which he began a career within the Church. In 1777 he was appointed to the bishopric of Lund in the south of Sweden. Celsius was also active as a politician in the Swedish parliament and was considered one of the foremost speakers of his time. He was one of the first 18 members of the Swedish Academy in 1786 and published a large number of historical works, speeches and psalms. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Howell was a landowner and a surveyor, and he used his own work, along with the personal surveys of others to create his map. This condensed version of Howell's map, first published the same year as the larger version, shows the state in its entirety with towns, roads, and topographical features. New canals are also shown, including one beginning at the mouth of Conewago canal on the Susquehanna River, and another beginning on the Delaware River just north of Pennsylvania and going to Norris Town.

        Entrance tokens for Gilbert Pidcock's menagerie, ca. 1795.

      circa, 1795. Two bronze tokens, diameter 21cms. in very good condition. Pidcock's menagerie was at Exeter Exchange on the Strand in London. He exhibited exotic animals since 1793, including a kangaroo, elephant, rhinoceros and cockatoos. The tokens here on offer are one showing an elephant and on verso a cockatoo; the other showing an elephant and a two-headed cow. Gilbert Pidcock had worked in travelling shows since he was a young man, and in 1795 took sole ownership of the London-based menagerie which bore his name, situated in the Strand in a building called the Exeter Change. One of the grand sights of the metropolis, people flocked to see the exotic animals and birds on show, and he started at an ideal time for acquiring specimens from Australian and South-East Asia. One of Pidcock's regular visitors was the wood engraver and artist Thomas Bewick, who used the animals as models for the engravings he included in works like his famous General History of Quadrupeds.The rare bronze token advertising their acquisition of a crested cockatoo, given the rather limited detail of the present specimen, and the lack of explicit records of the birds kept by Pidcock, it is not possible to be precise about exactly what kind of cockatoo is depicted: having said that, it must be one of the birds endemic to Australia or Indonesia: the sulphur-, orange-, yellow- or otherwise crested cockatoos. In John White's Journal of a Voyage to New South Wales, to cite one obvious comparison, there is a "Crested Cockatoo" that was drawn by Sarah Stone.The two-headed heifer was a live exhibit and an advertisement referring to it appeared in the 29th January 1791 edition of the London Chronicle: "Now exhibiting at the Lyceum Strand. The surprising Heifer with two heads. This very remarkable creature has two Heads, Four Horns, Four Ears, Four Nostrils, through each of which it breathes, &c. This truly wonderful Curiosity is the only one of the kind in Europe; and what is more astonishing, it takes its Sustenance with both mouths at the same time, to the admiration of the Faculty, and the Beholders in general; and it also the received opinion of John Hunter, Esq., Professor of Anatomy, that it has two hearts. One of the Heads, together with the Horns, represents that of a bull, and the other a Cow. The height of the animal is thirteen hands, and each Horn measures twenty-five inches long. Admittance One Shilling. N.B.- Most money given for all sorts of foreign Beasts and Birds, if alive, by G. Pidcock."

(publisher's catalogue), 279, [i] (blank) pp. Engraved. Binding worn, rubbed and bumped; spine slightly defective and chipped at head and foot; hinge reinforced with dark green cloth. Occasional light soiling; initial leaves including title and final leaves somewhat foxed; leaves from p. 149 to end somewhat browned.. Third edition, second issue. Hopkinson 45A (c). Loewenberg 359. Lesure p. 237. Hirsch II, 268. RISM G2679. The first issue of the first edition was published by the Bureau du Journal de Musique in 1777; the second issue, by de Marchand in ca. 1778. Des Lauriers took over in about 1780, printing an edition from the original plates but with a newly-engraved title page. The publisher's catalogue is unique to the second issue of his Titelauflage. The libretto by Quinault after Tasso had been set by Lully in 1686. "What persuaded Gluck to choose Armide after Iphigenie en Aulide was probably not any aesthetic consideration; but rather a shrewd feeling that an appeal to French national pride, a sop to the old Lullyist school and a demonstration that he could rival Lully in his own province would none of them come amiss... in none of the scenes in Quinault's poem is it possible for Renaud to appear in a favorable light. Armide, on the other hand, is a bewitching figure. Proud, amorous, and intensely feminine, she is one of the most convincing of Gluck's heroines." Cooper: Gluck, pp. 213- 19.

        HISTOIRE DE LA CONQUETE DU MEXIQUE, TRADUITE DE L'ESPAGNOL D'ANTONIO DE SOLIS [manuscript caption title].

      [Np, but France. ca. 1795]. - [433]pp. Folio. Late 19th-century black half morocco and cloth, spine gilt. Corners rubbed. Front inner hinge cracked. Minor soiling, some contemporary ink staining. Very good. Manuscript translation, in French, of this classic history of the conquest of Mexico, first published in Madrid in 1684. Though undated, it is written on paper watermarked 1793 in a neat and uniform hand. A French translation had appeared as early as 1691, but this appears to be a different translation. The HISTORIA DE LA CONQUISTA DE MEXICO was reprinted in multiple editions in every European language and was popular on both sides of the Atlantic. The author was a noted Spanish dramatist and historian. His work includes theatre, poetry, and prose, and he has been considered one of the last great writers of Spanish baroque literature. This work remained the most important European source on Latin American history up through the first part of the 19th century.

        HISTORIA DE LA VIDA Y (sic) VIAGES ( VIAJES ) DEL CAPITÁN JAIME COOK. 1ª edición española. Obra escrita en inglés por. Y traducida al castellano por Don Cesareo de Nava Pacio. II volúmenes

      1795 - Madrid. En Imprenta Real. 1795. Dos volúmenes. O.C. 4º menor, 1h-x-262pp, 1h-288pp-1h. Encuadernación plena pasta española de época, diversamente rozada, hierros dorados y tejuelo en lomera. Firmas. Artística y hábil restauración de papel en portada y primera página de vol. II, de tal guisa que no falta texto al haber sido facsimilada sobre papel jápon, también -y en el mismo volúmen- falta guarda delantera sustituida por buen papel japón y en guarda posterior al vol. I, papel oscurecido de forma esporádica y discreto óxido en algunas páginas. Hemos preferido mantener la encuadernación, ya que, aunque es sencilla sigue siendo la original de imprenta. Ejemplar algo pobre, pero sólido con una conservación aceptable, obviando las faltas descritas. Ampliaremos información al posible interesado. Clásica obra en su género y de amenísima lectura, los viajes del capitán Cook han significado para la ciencia bibliográfica la aparición de un inmenso conjunto de materiales cuya exploración necesita la utilización de brújulas, astrolabios y un sinfín de cartas de navegación. Se pueden contar por centenas e incluso miles los manuscritos, libros, artículos, tesis, comunicaciones o documentos de todo tipo que describen, analizan y aportan información variadísima de una de las aventuras de exploración más importantes de todos los tiempos. La navegación, la botánica, la zoología, la etnografía, la lingüística, la astronomía, la política y muchas otras ciencias se vieron y, todavía hoy, se ven enriquecidas por las aportaciones de los periplos cookianos. Entre todas estas ciencias, la bibliografía es la encargada de proponer las vías que permitan encaminar al investigador hacia las materias y campos de su interés. Y dentro de los estudios bibliográficos, la línea de investigación de las ediciones originales publicadas en el siglo XVIII de los viajes del capitán Cook. Andrew Kippis, 1725-1795. James Cook, 1728-1779. CCPB000374384-5. CCPB000138288-8.
