Francesco Petrarca (July 20, 1304 July 19, 1374), commonly anglicized as Petrarch, was an Italian scholar and poet in Renaissance Italy, and one of the earliest humanists. Petrarch's rediscovery of Cicero's letters is often credited for initiating the 14th-century Renaissance. Petrarch is often called the "Father of Humanism". In the 16th century, Pietro Bembo created the model for the modern Italian language based on Petrarch's works, as well as those of Giovanni Boccaccio, and, to a lesser extent, Dante Alighieri. Petrarch would be later endorsed as a model for Italian style by the Accademia della Crusca. Petrarch's sonnets were admired and imitated throughout Europe during the Renaissance and became a model for lyrical poetry. He is also known for being the first to develop the concept of the "Dark Ages." This standing back from his time was possible because he straddled two worlds - the classical and his own modern day. (Wikipedia) ___________________________ Susannah Dobson née Dawson (died 1795) was an English translator, from the south of England. The daughter of John Dawson of the parish of St Dunstan, London, she married in 1759 a physician, Dr Matthew Dobson of Liverpool, who died at Bath, Somerset in 1784. They had three children. Frances Burney mentions that in 1780 Susannah Dobson was ambitious to get into Mrs Thrale's circle, but the latter was not keen: "Mrs Dobson persecutes me strangely as if with violent & undesired Friendship yet Mrs Lewis says She is jealous." A modern view of what Thrale wrote in Thraliana is that it implied Dobson was a lesbian. Burney wrote of her, "Though coarse, low-bred, forward, self-sufficient, and flaunting, she seems to have a strong masculine understanding." Dr Dobson had become Mrs Thrale's physician. Susannah Dobson died 30 September 1795, and was buried at St Paul's, Covent Garden. (Wikipedia)

        OEUVRES COMPLÈTES

      Paris: Pierre Didot l'aîné, 1795. Attractively printed by Didot, this is a little gem of a copy of the works of Montesquieu in bindings decorated in the style of, and with tools attributable to, Bozerian le jeune. The frame of interlocking circles was a favorite of the younger Bozerian; it can be seen, for example, on a copy of "Essai sur les Révolutions" held by the Bibliothèque Nationale de France and on a copy of Petrarch in a binding very similar to the present one (and signed by le jeune), which sold as lot #246 in the Foyle sale. Charles-Louis de Secondat, baron de La Brède et de Montesquieu (1689-1755) was one of the most influential political philosophers of the Enlightenment; among his many contributions to political thought was his notion of the separation of powers into executive, legislative, and judicial branches, a plan adopted by the framers of the U.S. Constitution. His masterpiece,"De l'Esprit des Lois" ("The Spirit of the Law"), sets forth this separation of powers and other methods of preventing governments from becoming despotic. It occupies volumes I-VII of the present set, and is followed by "Lettres Persanes" ("Persian Letters," volumes VIII-IX); the novels "Temple de Gnide" and "Arsace et Isménie," with the "Essai sur le Gout" (volume X); "La Grandeur des Romains et de leur Décadence" (volume XI); and a collection of letters and "Pensées" (volume XII). Such was the printing genius of Didot that the text--even in this duodecimo edition with a small typeface--looks spacious, has comfortable margins, and provides easy, pleasant reading.. 140 x 83 mm. (5 1/2 x 3 1/4"). 12 volumes. VERY PLEASING CONTEMPORARY RED STRAIGHT-GRAIN MOROCCO, HANDSOMELY GILT, IN THE STYLE OF BOZERIAN, covers bordered by dogtooth and plain gilt rules enclosing a frame of interlocked circles, flat spines divided into compartments by plain and decorative gilt rules, two compartments with a myriad of small tools emanating from a central circlet, two compartments with stylized star tool at center and calligraphic flourishes at corners, gilt titling, turn-ins with gilt Greek key role, all edges gilt. One flyleaf with paper flaw, faint yellowing on a few leaves, but AN ABSOLUTELY LOVELY SET, the decorative original bindings very lustrous and virtually unworn, and the text, bright, clean, smooth, and fresh.

        Passport for the Bark Belle, Ichabod Handy, Master, New Bedford Mass., 1844.

      Folio vellum sheet 13 x 15 1/4 inches, with engraved headpiece and printed text, accomplished in manuscript. A very interesting example of this type of document, with the standard engraving of a ship and a lighthouse at the top of the sheet, and the upper edge scalloped as is usual. Supposedly, the scalloped top edge would fit into a jig held by the local customs agent. This would prevent forgery and overcome the obstacle of illiteracy. This type of passport or sea letter is known as a Mediterranean Passport. It came into use following our 1795 treaty with Algiers. These passports would be recognized by members of the Barbary states and, under terms of the treaty, ships bearing them would be allowed to pass. As you might suppose, ships carrying these documents were merchant vessels with business in the Mediterranean. What makes this particular example unusual - singular, in my experience - is that the "Belle" was a whale ship, 320 22/95 tons, built in Mattapoisett in 1844 and sailing out of Fairhaven to the Pacific Ocean on this, her maiden voyage. According to Starbuck, Ichabod Handy was her master on this voyage. It lasted an extraordinary eight years - from 1844 to 1852, at which time she returned with only 350 barrels of sperm oil. So the questions are many. What was she doing out there for so long? Why did she return so little oil? Why was she carrying a Mediterranean Passport? Here's what Michael Dyer of the New Bedford Whaling Museum has to say, "There is something mighty peculiar about this piece as described. For one thing itÂ’s a bit late for a Mediterranean Passport. By the 1840s they had been largely replaced by Four-Language Sea Letters." True enough. So not only is she carrying a document for the wrong ocean, it's an outdated document for the wrong ocean. Was Ichabod Handy an autograph collector? This passport has the United States seal, as well as the clear, strong signatures of President John Tyler and Secretary of State John C. Calhoun. The great bookseller Peter Howard said something to the effect that books are riddles for booksellers to solve. The same is true, at least in this case, for Mediterranean Passports. Very good condition,

        Essays on Philosophical Subjects. To which is prefixed, an Account of the Life and Writings of the Author; by Dugald Stewart

      London: T. Cadell Jun. and W. Davies, and W. Creech, Edinburgh, 1795 - First edition, 4to, xcvi, 244 pp. Uncut in recent full calf, period gilt spine with a red label, a handsome copy. Published posthumously, Smith had instructed his executors to destroy 16 volumes of his manuscripts just before his demise so as to concentrate readers' attention on his most famous works, "The Theory of Moral Sentiments" and the "Wealth Of Nations". Nonetheless his friends deemed that his concern with his posthumous reputation was an "excessive solicitude" and that these essays were of sufficient quality to be published. In the preface the editors Joseph Black and John Hutton conclude that "though it is difficult to add much to the great fame he most justly acquired by his other writings, these will be read with satisfaction and pleasure"

        1792-1795 Augusta, Georgia Late Eighteenth Century Ledger

      [Augusta, Georgia], 1795. Vellum. Good. 8vo. Approx. 9" x 6". [86] leaves (192 pages). Vellum binding. Several pages are loose, detached and laid inside binding. Vellum strip used for closing book mostly gone. Vertical crack on left edge of front cover. Small chip to vellum spine. Small tears to vellum binding. Normal toning to contents. Several pages in the middle have (dried) dark spots. A. W. initials on the front paste down. An inscription written on page 1 - "Valentine Walker. My Grandfather's brother. This book was given me a bring(?) Uncle Val's Scrap book. So I hand it down to prosperity in good faith. It is too old and interesting to destroy. So let us accept it as his and treasure it accordingly. Agnes Walker Pendleton. Wednesday. June 4 - 1924- 53 - E. 11 - St. Atlanta, Ga." Ledger is completely used with several names recorded. A loose index of 23 pages of account names with the leaf number precedes the first account. The accounts have the word "Contra" boldly written at the top most of the accounts and the letter "D" preceding the name of the individuals account. Earliest dates recorded in the ledger are from 1792. Goods listed include cotton, whiskey, rum, baskets, buckles, shoes, tobacco, muslin, clothing, etc. This ledger consists of several prominent names in the Augusta, Georgia Richmond County region. The inscription written by Agnes Pendleton Walker points to Valentine Walker as the owner. However it is not certain the ledger is in his hand. The accounts are dated supposedly before he moved to Georgia in 1797. Valentine Walker served as Brigadier General of the 1st Brigade, 2nd Division of the Georgia State Militia in 1810. He later practiced law in Augusta and had a distinguished career as Justice in Richmond County. Freeman Walker and and his younger brother Valentine both moved to Augusta, Georgia in 1797. Their two older brothers, George and Robert Walker, were already practicing law in Augusta at the time. George and Robert Walker names are both listed in accounts. George Walker's name is written on leaf number 12. Robert Walker's account is listed on leaf number 67 and on the rear end sheet. Based on the preliminary research of several names, information provided by the previous owner Agnes Walker Pendleton, and an account inscription signed by Arthur Donnely in Augusta March 8, 1794, it is probable this account ledger originated in the Augusta Georgia area. Other localities recorded include Georgetown, Washington, Charleston, and Oglethorpe. A few Plantation names are also listed. Prominent Georgian individuals with accounts include Ignatious Few (Captain Ignatious Few?), (General) John Twiggs (Richmond County), and George Walton (possibly the same person who signed the American Declaration of Independence listed on leaf number 32). George Walton died in Augusta in 1804. Other prominent names listed include Charles Crawford, John Martin (Campbels Plantation), Peter Goodwin, Robert Worsham, James Gardner, Ephraim Sanders, Thomas Bray, Thomas Lamar, Isaac Wingate, John Butler, Reuben Allen, James Robertson, Colonel Samuel Hammond (Rae's Hall Plantation), John Tindall (Kiokees), Solomon Newsom, McIntosh, Wilcox, McCabe, Garrett, Churchill, Cummins, Kennedy, Gaddy, and many more.

        History of North America. Containing a Review of the Customs and

      , 1795. 1795. [JOHNSON, RICHARD]. The History of North America. Containing a Review of the Customs and Manners of the Inhabitants; the First Settlement of the British Colonies, their Rise and Progress ... to the Time of their Becoming United, Free and Independent States. By the Rev. Mr. Cooper [pseud.]. Lansingburgh: Silvester Tiffany, for Thomas Spencer, Albany, 1795. 12mo. [8], 159 p. 6 engraved plates. Contemporary sprinkled sheep. Front hinge a bit scuffed, else a fine copy. Second American edition of a delightfully illustrated text for adolescents, in remarkably fine, original condition. While early cataloguers went to great lengths to identify the Reverend Mr. Cooper, and assigned him various given names, he was in reality Richard Johnson (1733 or 4-1793) and he wrote the text for Elizabeth Newbery, who published the first edition in 1789. See M.J.P. Weedon, "Richard Johnson and the Successors to John Newbery," The Library (1949), pp. 25-63. Anthony Haswell, in Bennington, Vermont, printed the first American edition in 1793 for Albany bookseller Thomas Spencer, who also published this second American edition. There were several later American editions, nearly all unillustrated. The illustrations in this edition are crude but wonderfully charming copperplate engravings. The frontispiece, "America Trampling on Oppression," depicts Liberty, a cornucopia at her feet, flanked by pedestals surmounted by profiles of Franklin and Washington. The other engravings are: "Americans Throwing the Cargoes of the Tea Ships into the River at Boston"; "Battle of Bunkers Hill"; "Death of Genl. Montgomery"; "Destruction of the Randolph Frigate"; and "Defeat of DeGrasse." It is quite rare to find an eighteenth-century illustrated American children's book in such fresh original condition.

        Sistema universale dei principj del diritto marittimo dell'Europa del signor senatore Domenico Alberto Azuni patrizio sassarese. Tomo primo [-secondo]

      per Gaetano Cambiagi Stampatore Granducale, Firenze - 1795-1796. 2 volumi in-8, pp. (4), 266, (2); pp. (4), 329, (3). Legature coeve in piena pelle marezzata (lievi professionali restauri alle cuffie). Tagli spruzzati. Ritratto dell'autore in antiporta. Bell'esemplare, uno dei pochi impresso su carta forte. Edizione originale, di notevole rarità, della più esaustiva trattazione economico-giuridica in materia di traffici marittimi. L'autore, nato a Sassari nel 1749, avviato dal padre farmacista agli studi filosofici e giuridici, conseguì nella città isolana il baccalaureato e il proliterato in legge. Trasferitosi prima a Torino, poi a Nizza, fu vice intendente generale e successivamente giudice del Consolato di commercio di quella città. L'occupazione del Nizzardo da parte delle truppe rivoluzionarie coincise con il suo esilio, la naturalizzazione francese, l'accusa di giacobinismo mossa nei suoi riguardi e la conseguente confisca dei suoi beni. Durante questo forzato esilio, itinerando tra Firenze, Trieste e Venezia, scrisse e perfezionò quest'opera, pubblicata prima a Firenze per il Cambiagi (la nostra), successivamente a New York, poi tradotta in lingua francese sulla seconda italiana che si era intanto fatta a Trieste nel 1796 per Wage e Fleis. L'opera fu moto apprezzata negli ambienti più illuminati per la vastità della ricerca, l'originalità dell'analisi e la lungimiranza delle proposte di riforma. Con la sua pubblicazione, tuttavia, si aprì una sgradevole controversia per il supposto plagio che l'autore avrebbe consumato a danno del campano Michele De Jorio, in base ad un'accusa avanzata da Bartolomeo Pagano e da altri; questo non impedì all'Azuni di accrescere la sua notorietà al punto di indurre il governo francese ad affidargli, nel 1800, la redazione della parte marittima del napoleonico "Code de commerce".

Nieuwe Platte Grond der Stad Amsteldam??Kopergravure vervaardigd door C. van Baarsel in 1795, gecorrigeerd en gedrukt van twee platen in 1820 bij Mortier, Covens en Zoon. Later met de hand gekleurd. Afm. (voorstelling): 54,5 x 94 cm.Uitgeverij Mortier, Covens en Zoon is waarschijnlijk in 1794 begonnen met het vervaardigen van deze kaart. Hij kwam gereed tijdens het eerste jaar van de Bataafse Republiek (1795-1801). Het was een staatsvorm die de voormalige Republiek der Zeven Verenigde Nederlanden met hun Generaliteitslanden bestuurde. In de aanloop hiertoe bezette het Franse Noorderleger onder commando van brigade-generaal Charles Pichegru op 19 januari 1795 Amsterdam. Via en fluwelen revolutie werden de zittende regenten vervangen door bestuurders met Franse sympathie?n.Er volgenden verschillende uitgaven van de kaart, met telkens kleine veranderingen in de decoraties of het kaartbeeld die de woelige geschiedenis van ons land weerspiegelen: de Bataafse tijd, de jaren van koning Lodewijk Napoleon, de jaren van inlijving bij het Franse keizerrijk onder Napoleon en de eerste jaren daarna. Zo heet op dit exemplaar uit 1820 de Dam weer Den Dam en niet meer het Revolutie Plein of Plein Napoleon, heet ?t Burgerplein weer Koningsplein is het stadhuis inmiddels paleis en is de waag op de Dam inmiddels afgebroken.Prijs: ?3.450,- (incl. lijst).

Afm.: ca. 42 x 51 cm.Net als in andere delen van Europa groeide eind 18de eeuw in de Republiek der Zeven Verenigde Nederlanden weerstand tegen de adel, de wens naar een eerlijker bestuur en een meer egalitaire maatschappij, zodat een einde zou kunnen worden gemaakt aan het verdelen van baantjes binnen de regentenklasse. De Orangisten, die stadhouder Willem V zijn absolutistische macht wilden laten behouden, stonden tegenover de patriotten die, onder invloed van de Franse idee?n van de Verlichting en de Amerikaanse Revolutie, meer democratisch invloed op het benoemingsbeleid wilden uitoefenen en meer kansen wilden scheppen voor uitgesloten delen van de bevolking.De Franse tijd begon in het grootste gedeelte van Nederland met de Bataafse Revolutie in 1795, waarbij Nederlandse patriotten, met steun van een Frans leger dat het land was binnengetrokken, de Bataafse Republiek uitriepen. Stadhouder Willem V vertrok naar Engeland in ballingschap.Hier zien we het ?feest der vrijheid? op de Dam te Amsterdam. Een grote menigte danst om de vrijheidsboom. Bij het onderschrift zien we de drie allegorische emblemen van Vrijheid, Gelijkheid en Broederschap die ook aan de boom hangen. In juni van dat zelfde jaar volgt het ?feest der alliantie?.De Franse tijd eindigde toen Napoleon in 1813 werd verslagen en afstand deed van de troon.

        History of North America. Containing a Review of the Customs and

      1795 - [JOHNSON, RICHARD]. The History of North America. Containing a Review of the Customs and Manners of the Inhabitants; the First Settlement of the British Colonies, their Rise and Progress . to the Time of their Becoming United, Free and Independent States. By the Rev. Mr. Cooper [pseud.]. Lansingburgh: Silvester Tiffany, for Thomas Spencer, Albany, 1795. 12mo. [8], 159 p. 6 engraved plates. Contemporary sprinkled sheep. Front hinge a bit scuffed, else a fine copy. Second American edition of a delightfully illustrated text for adolescents, in remarkably fine, original condition. While early cataloguers went to great lengths to identify the Reverend Mr. Cooper, and assigned him various given names, he was in reality Richard Johnson (1733 or 4-1793) and he wrote the text for Elizabeth Newbery, who published the first edition in 1789. See M.J.P. Weedon, "Richard Johnson and the Successors to John Newbery," The Library (1949), pp. 25-63. Anthony Haswell, in Bennington, Vermont, printed the first American edition in 1793 for Albany bookseller Thomas Spencer, who also published this second American edition. There were several later American editions, nearly all unillustrated. The illustrations in this edition are crude but wonderfully charming copperplate engravings. The frontispiece, "America Trampling on Oppression," depicts Liberty, a cornucopia at her feet, flanked by pedestals surmounted by profiles of Franklin and Washington. The other engravings are: "Americans Throwing the Cargoes of the Tea Ships into the River at Boston"; "Battle of Bunkers Hill"; "Death of Genl. Montgomery"; "Destruction of the Randolph Frigate"; and "Defeat of DeGrasse." It is quite rare to find an eighteenth-century illustrated American children's book in such fresh original condition.

Nieuwe Platte Grond der Stad Amsteldam?'Kopergravure vervaardigd door C. van Baarsel in 1795, gecorrigeerd en gedrukt van twee platen in 1820 bij Mortier, Covens en Zoon. Later met de hand gekleurd. Afm. (voorstelling): 54,5 x 94 cm.Uitgeverij Mortier, Covens en Zoon is waarschijnlijk in 1794 begonnen met het vervaardigen van deze kaart. Hij kwam gereed tijdens het eerste jaar van de Bataafse Republiek (1795-1801). Het was een staatsvorm die de voormalige Republiek der Zeven Verenigde Nederlanden met hun Generaliteitslanden bestuurde. In de aanloop hiertoe bezette het Franse Noorderleger onder commando van brigade-generaal Charles Pichegru op 19 januari 1795 Amsterdam. Via en fluwelen revolutie werden de zittende regenten vervangen door bestuurders met Franse sympathieën.Er volgenden verschillende uitgaven van de kaart, met telkens kleine veranderingen in de decoraties of het kaartbeeld die de woelige geschiedenis van ons land weerspiegelen: de Bataafse tijd, de jaren van koning Lodewijk Napoleon, de jaren van inlijving bij het Franse keizerrijk onder Napoleon en de eerste jaren daarna. Zo heet op dit exemplaar uit 1820 de Dam weer Den Dam en niet meer het Revolutie Plein of Plein Napoleon, heet ?t Burgerplein weer Koningsplein is het stadhuis inmiddels paleis en is de waag op de Dam inmiddels afgebroken.Prijs: ?3.450,- (incl. lijst).

        Musae Etonenses. Seu Carminum Delectus nunc primum in lucem editus.

      London: G. Stafford, 1795 - 3 volumes in 2, octavo (228 x 155 mm). Contemporary diced russia by Ingalton, titles to smooth spines gilt in compartments, decorative frame to covers gilt, turn-ins gilt, marbled edges and endpapers, green silk markers. Spines lightly faded, slight bumps to tips, short closed tear to foot of title page of vol. 1; an excellent handsomely bound set. Text in Latin in vols. 1 and 2, Greek in vol. 3. First edition, large paper issue, with the errata and list of subscribers, in a scarce and handsome Eton binding by Ingalton. This is William Herbert's first book, a collection of poetry in Latin and Greek, edited at the age of 17 whilst a student at Eton. Herbert went on to serve as MP for Hampshire and Cricklade, later being ordaining and serving as Dean of Manchester. He also gained a high reputation, "as a classical scholar, a linguist, and a naturalist", and published a number of books on various scholarly topics (ODNB). Volume one has the scarce Ingalton's binder's ticket to the rear pastedown; Ingalton, an Eton based book binder and publisher, reprinted the Musae Etonenses in 1817 with additional material. Despite the high number of binders operating out of Eton at this time it is unusual to find a signed binding such as this one. Additionally with the armorial bookplate of old Etonian Edmund Pollexfen Bastard to the front pastedowns. Bastard served as MP for Dartmouth and from 1816, Devon, succeeding his uncle and passing the seat of Dartmouth to his younger brother. As an M.P. he, "initially drew attention to himself only by the 'rarity' of his attendance, as Lord Granville noted in 1816"(History of Parliament). The whole presents a fine union of Etonian text, binder, and provenance. [Attributes: First Edition]

      1795. (HAGGADAH). Haggadah Shel Pesah. Offenbach: Zevi-Hirsch Segal Spitz, [1795]. Small octavo, period-style full marbled sheep gilt, brown morocco spine label, marbled endpapers; ff. 40. $2800.Lovely illustrated Offenbach Haggadah, with five in-text woodcuts portraying contemporary Ashkenazi (German) Jews, beautifully bound.“The illustration of the Seder, which is printed in the middle of the Haggadah, is of interest. The members of the family are dressed in 18th-century fashion, and the entire scene has a contemporary flavor” (Yerushalmi 84). This edition uses Joel Brill’s important 1785 German translation in Hebrew characters, part of Moses Mendelssohn’s Haskalah (“Enlightenment”) movement toward an integration of Jews into mainstream German and European society. The woodcut stag device on the title page is the printer’s emblem of Zevi Hirsch Segal Spitz and his son Abraham, as Zevi, in Hebrew, and Hirsch, in German, both mean “stag.” Title within woodcut border. Yerushalmi 84. See Yaari 262-65. A few stains and signs of ceremonial use. Lower corner of one leaf expertly restored, affecting a few words of text but not woodcut illustration; small expert repair to closed tear on title page. A very good copy.

        Raje Gaut, The Principal Road Up To Rotas Ghur, Bahar

      1795. DANIELL, Thomas and William. Raje Gaut, The Principal Road Up To Rotas Ghur, Bahar. [London]: Published as the Act directs by Thos. Daniell, July, 1795. Color-printed aquatint with hand-finishing on wove paper, measuring 21 by 28 inches; handsomely matted and framed, entire piece measures 34 by 28 inches. $4800.Beautiful large plate from Thomas and William Daniell's celebrated book Oriental Scenery, a color-printed aquatint finished by hand. The Daniells' Oriental Scenery is considered one of the finest illustrated works on India. Thomas Daniell and his nephew William spent nine years in India making studies, sketches and drawings of the scenery, architecture, and antiquities that graced the countryside. They then devoted a further 13 years to publishing their remarkably accurate aquatints. In Britain, the impact was explosive. A cult of Indian architecture, landscaping and interior decoration arose, with the Royal Pavilion at Brighton as its centerpiece. The Daniells gave the English public their first accurate look at the exotic sub-continent. Their great achievement still lies in their ability to blend the picturesque with the real, resulting in images that capture the European taste for the sublime landscape, while still remaining faithful to their subjects. The Daniells brought the romance of the English landscape to the antiquities of India and provided England with an accurate vision of this wondrous country. In February of 1792 during their travels, the Daniells ""set out for the great Mughal fort of Rohtasgarh, travelling by the plain which skirted the Son River. On they way they stopped to draw the waterfalls near Tarachandi known as Dhuan Kund… it is clear from the many drawings and engravings of the fort and its surroundings that they delighted in this splendid monument and its high, romantic setting"" (Archer, Early Views of India, 103). Consisting of 144 views, published in six parts, the work was issued in seven stages: three sets of 24 plates titled Oriental Scenery with title dates of 1795, 1797, and 1801 (this plate was published in the first part); 12 plates titled Antiquities of India dated 1799; 24 plates titled Hindoo Excavations dated 1803; 24 plates titled Views in Hindoostan dated 1807; and 12 further plates of Antiquities of India published without a title page in 1808. All plates were engraved by the Daniells and all are taken from their drawings save the 24 plates of Hindoo Excavations, which are after drawings by James Wales. See Abbey, Travel 420 (plate no. 6). Fine condition.

        Méthode pour la flûte

      chez Janet et Cotelle ... et libraires rue Neuve des Petits Champs No. 17 vis-à-vis le Trésor Royal : [1795?] : Paris : Folio: engraved throughout, pp. [2] 113 [1] (verso of title and last page blank). Calligraphic burin engraved titleplate incorporating a vignette (a naked Pan playing his flute in a forest), signed 'La Musique gravée par Richomme gaveur du Roi. Frontispiece gravé par L. Aubert père'; pp. 3-41 text, fingering charts (with 4 illustrations of flutes) and musical examples; pp. 42-113 compositions, mostly duets. Plate number 402 on all plates after the titleplate. : The most influential flute tutor for the classical (pre-Bohem system) flute. The first edition of 1794 was for the single-keyed flute; in this edition Devienne adds instruction for playing a four-keyed instrument. 'It contains information on flute techniques and performing practice (particularly late 18th-century articulation) as well as flute duets of elementary and intermediate difficulty.' (Grove Music Online).Devienne played the bassoon at the Paris Opera and was professor of flute at the Paris Conservatoire from its foundation in 1793. He composed several successful operas in the 1790s and a large number of instrumental works 'which did much to raise the musical level of works written for wind instruments in France in the 18th century' (Grove). His compositions for flute were revived by Jean-Pierre Rampal in the 1960s and his flute concertos have been recorded while a number of the compositions in the Méthode are included in modern anthologies of flute music.As was often the case with music publications with extensive text, the text as well as the music is engraved with punches, probably on pewter plates. OCLC locates a single copy in the Dutch Royal Library, dating it 1820.
