      Honkoop, Allart and Van Cleef 1795-1809, Leyden, Amsterdam, and The Hague - 222 x 133 mm. (8 3/4 x 5 1/4"). 14 volumes (13 volumes of text, plus index). Translated by J. D. Pasteur. First Edition in Dutch. Contemporary half calf over marbled boards, spines with orange morocco titling label and circular green morocco volume label (one volume expertly rebacked, using the original backstrip). WITH 199 ENGRAVINGS, including 13 title pages, 52 folding maps by C. van Baarsch, and 134 plates (mostly folding) by J. S. Klauber. First title page with paste-over at bottom presumably indicating a (late 19th century?) bookseller (this paste-over torn away in second volume and obscured by a second paste-over in the other volumes). Beddie 52; Tiele 268. Some chafing and abrasions to paper covers, a small chip at the top of one spine, minor wear to joints, half the corners worn, but all of the volumes solid, and nothing approaching a serious external condition issue. Separation at hinges on all but two volumes (without any looseness), a few half titles vaguely soiled, the single-page plates faintly offset, two volumes with inoffensive freckled foxing to plate margins, but still AN EXCEPTIONALLY FINE SET INTERNALLY, the plates especially rich, and the text unusually bright, fresh, and clean. This is a very desirable copy, with remarkably well-preserved text and plates, of the extremely uncommon first Dutch edition of the collected accounts of the three great voyages by James Cook, voyages of exploration that provided the world for the first time with a virtually complete understanding of the Pacific Ocean and Australia. The son of a field worker, Cook (1728-79) began his career at sea as a ship's apprentice. Joining the British navy in 1755, he saw action against the French off the Canadian coast, and surveyed the shores of Newfoundland and Labrador. Having educated himself in mathematics and astronomy, Cook was made lieutenant and put in charge of a scientific expedition that reached Tahiti in 1769, and that explored New Zealand and Australia, the first of his three expeditions circumnavigating the globe. In the course of his second circumnavigation, he was at sea for more than 1,000 days, and saw the ice of Antarctica. For his third and most famous voyage, his crew set sail in two ships, and while proceeding northeast from Tahiti with the aim of discovering a Northwest Passage, they came upon the Hawaiian Islands. There, one of his rowboats was stolen, and Cook responded by seizing the person of the Hawaiian king to compel the boat's return. In the fracas that ensued, Cook received a fatal blow. Our set contains the life of Cook and the first voyage (1768-71) in Volumes I-III, the second voyage (1772-75) in Volumes IV-VII, and the third voyage (1776-80) in Volumes VIII-XIII. Peddie says that the Dutch edition, which is probably based on the German printing of 1781, is seen with an atlas volume, but the present set has all of the plates bound in, as is often the case. The plates are printed on especially thick, textured paper, and this copy has none of the expected tears at plate folds. ABPC lists this item just once since 1975 (though it does show up from time to time at Dutch or Australian auctions not monitored by ABPC). When it does appear, it is almost always in terrible shape.

        Le Tribun du Peuple, ou le Défenseur des droits de L?Homme [Der Volkstribun. Der Verteidiger der Menschenrechte], No. 34: ?Du 15 Brumaire, l?an 4 de la République? von/par Gracchus Babeuf.

      Paris. 6. November 1795. - 52 S. 8°, Priv.Ln. Am 3. September 1794 veröffentliche der linksrevolutionäre französische Agitator François Noël Babeuf (1760-1797) die erste Ausgabe seines Journal de la liberté de la presse, dessen Titel am 5. Oktober in Le Tribun du peuple geändert wurde. Vom Standpunkt seiner sozialistischen Theorien heraus attackierte Babeuf die ökonomischen Ergebnisse der französischen Revolution. Seine Fundamentalkritik stieß indessen auf wenig Resonanz, nicht einmal im Jakobinerklub, dem Babeuf nahe stand. Es folgten Verhaftungen und Gefängnisaufenthalte. Während einer erneuten Inhaftierung im Februar 1795 wurde Tribun du peuple feierlich im Theatre des Bergeres von jenen jungen Männern (jeunesse dorée) verbrannt, die es als ihre Aufgabe ansahen, den Jakobinismus aus der Öffentlichkeit zu verbannen. Mit der Nr. 43 erschien am 24. April 1796 die letzte Ausgabe des ?Le Tribun? Am 10. Mai wurden Babeuf und viele seiner Genossen verhaftet und vor Gericht gestellt. Am 27. Mai 1797 erfolgte die Hinrichtung Babeufs, einem der ersten frühsozialistischen Impulsgeber der späteren sozialrevolutionären Bewegungen, die er mit seinen Ideen beeinflußte. Professionell in rotem Leinen mit in Gold geprägten Lettern am dem Rücken gebunden. Innenteil staubfleckig. Schnitt unsauber. Absolute Rarität! 800 gr. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

Data la struttura dell'opera queste vedute sono molto rare e quasi sempre mancanti alle collezioni ed ai repertori specializzati. Questa veduta proviene da un album costituito attorno al 1840 da un collezionista tedesco. La veduta raffigura tutta le città con titolo sudrappo appeso alle armi della città, 31 rimandi in basso ed al centro un medaglione raffigurante <Ludovico Pio.

        Scherzi poetici e pittorici.

      Roma 1794 (Parma, co' tipi bodoniani, 1795), - in-4 real folio, in totale ff. 93: 4 fogli preliminari (titolo, 2 di dedicatoria, occhietto), 47 di testo, indice, 41 tavole compreso titolo. Legatura d'amatore in marocchino granata a grana lunga, cornice di palmette impresse a secco piatti, motivi fogliacei angolari in oro, dorso a nervi con ricchi fregi a secco e in oro. Dedica a stampa ad Alessandro de Souza e Holstein, firmata dal De Rossi, autore dei versi redatti in vario metro e con tema allegorico amoroso. Ogni scherzo poetico, stampato in tondo, è numerato in romano entro una tavoletta, e a fronte reca un illustrazione. Esemplare sconosciuto alle bibliografie in quanto in formato in-4 grande e con rami all'etrusca (in giallo e nero) incisi da Texeira Barreto e non da Rosaspina. Questa edizione, una delle più eleganti e raffinate produzioni di Bodoni, è illustrata da antiporta con data Roma 1794 e 40 belle tavole incise da Texeira numerate nel margine superiore. Bodoni stampò diverse versioni di questo libro, variando la composizione, il formato, e la coloritura dei rami. Si conoscono esemplari con le tavole in nero, in nero e giallo all'etrusca del Rosaspina, oppure, in pochissimi casi, contornate dalle bordure neoclassiche incise da Giacomo Mercoli. ''Si trovano degli esemplari coi 41 rami neri; altri coi medesimi coloriti all'etrusca; altri coi rami stampati in rosso pallido entro un arabesco nero. E finalmente furono tirati per dodici copie, tanto il rame, quanto l'arabesco, con inchiostro chiarissimo, per chi avesse talento di farli acquerellare in colore. Presso di lui ne esistono delle prove; ma non fu contento del lavoro'' (DE LAMA). Gherardo De Rossi (Roma, 1754 ? 1827), direttore dell'Accademia reale di Napoli. Figlio di un banchiere, fu ministro delle finanze della repubblica romana dal 1798 al 1800. Autore di 16 commedie e di saggi critici sul teatro, fece parte dell'Arcadia, con il nome di Perinto Sceo e fu presidente dell'Accademia di belle arti del Portogallo. Per questa ragione scelse ad illustrare gli Scherzi l'artista portoghese José Teixeira Barreto (o Tekeira, 1763-1810, cfr. Pedro VITORINO, J.Teixeira B., Artista Portuense, Coimbra, 1925). Alessandro de Souza e Holstein, Conte di Sanfrè e di Motta Isnardi, (Lisbona 1751 - Roma 1803) fu ambasciatore di Portogallo a Roma, ed ebbe incarichi presso il governo sabaudo.

        Valley of Glencoe

      London: Published by Robert Andrew Riddell, 1795. Colour-printed aquatint. Full inscription at bottom of print reads: 'To the Most Noble George Marquis of Tweedale & this View of the Valley of Glencoe is respectfully Inscribed by His Lordships most obedient Humble Servant.' Very good condition apart from some light soiling, minor foxing, and several small losses in the margins. A fine plate of the scenic mountains of Glencoe in the Highlands of western Scotland. This beautiful image is most likely part of a pair prints depicting Glencoe that Riddell published in 1795. Robert Andrew Riddell was a landscape painter, who primarily depicted the scenic topography of Scotland in watercolour. He exhibited one of his works at the Royal Academy in 1793 and gave several of his paintings to the Scottish poet Robert Burns. Archibald Robertson (1765-1835) was a Scottish artist, very talented in both painting and printmaking, who immigrated to America around 1796 (soon after this print was published) where he had a successful career painting miniature portraits on ivory. He also produced a number of topographical prints of New York City places: "Collect Pond" of 1798 among others. A number of his miniature portraits are in the collection of the Metropolitan Museum. This early work of the Highland valley Glencoe is an extraordinarily fine landscape print, aesthetically superior to Robertson's American prints, and a fine example of colour printed aquatint.

        Entwicklung der Ursachen welche Frankreich gehindert haben zur Freiheit zu gelangen. Mit Anmerkungen und Zusätzen (übersetzt) von Friedrich Gentz. 2 Bände. XVI, 368 S.; 350 S., 1 Bl. Graublaue Pappbde d. Z. (Rücken berieben) mit Rückenschild. Deckel mit gezeichn. Schweizer Lokalwappen als Supralibros in den Farben Rot-Gelb-Silber-Braun.

      Berlin, Friedrich Vieweg d. Ä., 1795. - Erste deutsche Ausgabe, sehr selten. Der liberale Royalist Mounier (1758-1806) war Deputierter der Generalstaaten und spielte in der Anfangsphase der Französichen Revolution eine bedeutende Rolle. Er hatte 1788 die Ständeversammlung einberufen und damit den Stein der Revolution ins Rollen gebracht. Auf seinen Antrag hin erklärte sich der dritte Stand zur Nationalversammlung und leistete am 20.

        Outlines of an Historical View of the Progress of the Human Mind:

      London: Printed for J. Johnson,, 1795. being a posthumus work of the late M. de Condorcet. Translated from the French. Octavo (205 x 126 mm). Contemporary half calf, marbled sides, spine gilt in compartments, titles to spine gilt, edges sprinkled green. Contemporary ownership signatures to front pastedown and head of title page. Extremities slightly rubbed and worn, joints cracked but firm, endpapers lightly tanned, occasional minor spotting to text block. A very good copy. First edition in English of Esquisse d'un tableau historique de progrès de l'esprit humain, originally published earlier the same year in Paris. "In the Esquisse ... Condorcet traces the history of man through epochs, the first three covering his progress from savagery to pastoral community and thence to the agricultural state. The next five span the growth of civilizations, and knowledge down to Descartes, and the ninth describes the revolution of Condorcet's own lifetime, from Newton to Rousseau. The prophetic view of the tenth epoch shows Condorcet at his most original. He forecasts the destruction of inequality between nations and classes, and the improvement, intellectual, moral and physical, of human nature" (PMM).

        The scholar armed against the errors of the time. Or, a collection of tracts on the principles and evidences of Christianity, the constitution of the Church, and the authority of civil government. In two volumes. ..... The whole intended for the information and assistance of young students in our schools and universities; and published by a Society for the Reformation of Principles.

      London: F. and C. Rivington. 1795. Two vols., 8vo., (10) + xi + (3) + 576 and (4) + 525 + (1)pp., with the mid-19th century armorial bookplates of John Bowles >on pastedowns, contemporary tree calf, sometime rebacked, spines gilt and labelled. A fine copy in a pleasing binding. Second edition*: scarce. 'Jones of Nayland (1726-1800), Anglican clergyman and religious controversialist, and his associates had early on after 1789 been inspired by the French Revolution to heightened energy in defence of the Church against what they saw as anarchy, irreligion, and Antichrist. In 1792 Jones founded the Society for the Reformation of Principles to promote high-church values, which resulted in the publication of the British Critic>. He edited in 1795 an expanded version of a collection of tracts previously published fifteen years earlier and now entitled The Scholar Armed against the errors of the time>. ..... [Jones's] career illustrates the ways in which the high-church mentality, with its connotations of sacerdotalism and respect for divinely constituted authority, was more influential in the 18th century than has sometimes been appreciated. The threats to order posed by the American War of Independence, and even more by the French Revolution, gave Jones and his contemporaries a wide readership.' [G.M. Ditchfield in ODNB]. * This 2nd ed. (the 1st was 1780) is much enhanced by Jones's detailed proposals for the formation of the Society for the Reformation of Principles. They are set out here in full (pp. i-xi) in three papers and a postscript severally dated January 1, 1792, June 11, 1792, and January, 1795. There were to be 'acting' [i.e. active] members, a committee, and annual subscribers. Messrs. Rivington, the London publishers, were to accept subscription.

        Amsterdam antieke plattegrond.

      "Plan Nouveau & très exact de la Ville d´Amsteldam. 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).

        The Holy Bible, containing the Old and New Testaments: Translated out of the original tongues; and with the former translations diligently compared and revised, by His Majesty's special command.

      [with] O.T. Psalms. English.1795. Paraphrases. The Psalms of David in metre. Translated, and diligently compared with the original text, and former translations. More plain, smooth, and agreeable to the text, than any heretofore. Allowed by the authority of the General Assembly of the Kirk of Scotland, and appointed to be sung in congregations and families. Edinburgh: Mark & Charles Kerr, 1795. 4to. [24] ff. The Kerrs, printers to His Majesty, published a number of Bibles in the late 18th century, with minor to significant variations among the editions -- including several different formats in 1793. In the present (uncommon) large quarto edition, the Apocrypha are not present although listed in table of contents, but the signatures of the Old and New Testaments are continuous and uninterrupted; the New Testament has a separate title-page. This edition ends with leaf 6M4 and does not match Darlow and Moule 957 (Edinburgh: M. & C. Kerr, 1793), described as a folio with text ending on 9R2, although that entry's statement that "The insertion of the Apocrypha interrupts the signatures" would seem to explain the absence of the non-integral Apocrypha; the accompanying Scotch Metrical Psalms of 1795 are also present in Darlow and Moule's listing. Herbert finds additional Kerr printings of 1793, but none that match the format and collation of this copy. Scarce: ESTC, OCLC, and NUC Pre-1956 find only two U.S. holdings. Provenance: The beautifully written ownership note, "Rebecca Jane Emack," at top of first text leaf.

        De l'Aranéologie ou sur la découverte du rappart connstant entre l'apparition ou la disparition... des Araignées des differentes espèces; - Et les variations athmospériques.Paris, J.J. Fuchs, 1797. 8vo. Modern boards covered with paste-paper (Lobstein-Laurenchat).

      Engelmann 547. Second, enlarged and rearranged edition of his Sur la découverte du rapport constant of 1795. The correlation between atmospherical changes and the behaviour of spiders made the author predict a period of frost when the French besieged Utrecht in 1795. The frost came, and the author was released from his imprisonment in Utrecht. This second edition was systematically arranged and enlarged with new observations. Very scarce. Some spotting, otherwise in good condition.

        Scherzi poetici e pittorici...

      Parma, Co’tipi Bodoniani, 1795. 4to, 54 leaves, some edges untrimmed. With an engraved title-page and 40 plates printed in sepia, with black ornamental borders, by Jose Teixeira Barreta. Early stiff vellum, backstrip gilt with red and black labels, gilt edges, a fine copy in a modern cloth box. First Bodoni edition, and one of a few Bodoni imprints issued with illustrations (the others mostly being fête books). This copy has large margins and is printed on fine paper with the plates in delicate shades of sepia -- it may be one of 12 copies that Brooks and de Lama refer to as ‘colored’. De Lama notes copies with plates printed in black, plates “medesimi coloriti all’etrusca” and (this copy) “altri coi rami stampati in rosso pallido entro un arabesco nero”. Updike, Printing Types, vol. 2, page 165 etc. notes that Bodoni’s earlier books (such as this) are to be preferred both for their fine design and presswork, for which he was justly renowned. This work, a collection of poems, is printed in roman and italic; each poem is illustrated with an allegorical engraving, contained in an elaborate border (all different) printed in black -- in a simple neo-Classical style. Barreta (Benezit gives Bareto) was a Portuguese Benedictine monk whose artistic skills were renowned -- in addition to these engravings he executed a number of full-scale paintings at his monastery which still survive. A second edition (without the plates) appeared in 1804. Brooks 600. De Lama II, 107/8. Weiss Catalog 11 (1926) #249 (but of the four copies, none with this configuration of illustrations in russet and borders in black).

        Cries of London, Plate 10, Old Chairs to Mend

      London: Published by Colnaghi & Co. No. 132 Pall Mall, 1795. Colour printed stipple engraving. Printed on wove paper. In good condition with the exception of being trimmed just within the platemark on all sides. Margins have some loss to surface of paper. Traces of glue residue on verso of sheet. Small sections of lost paper on upper and bottom margin has been expertly infilled. Image size: 14 x 11 inches. A wonderful image of a chair mender from Wheatley's famous "Cries of London" series. The "Cries of London" was a recurring theme in English printmaking for over three centuries. These colourful prints form a visual record of London's "lower orders", the peddlars, charlatans, street hawkers, milkmaids, and grocers who made their living on the city streets. They give the viewer a glimpse of a long forgotten London where tradesmen would advertise their wares with a musical shout or a melodic rhyme. Different versions of the "Cries" vary in tone from idealistic visions of contented street vendors to satirical caricatures of humorous urban figures. One of the most famous series of "London Cries" is the group of pretty pictures executed by Francis Wheatley. Wheatley's series was immensely popular and enjoyed a long period of success in the English print shops. Between 1792 and 1795 Wheatley exhibited 14 paintings of the "Cries" at the Royal Academy. The pictures attracted a great deal of attention at the exhibition and Colnaghi & Co. quickly agreed to publish a series of engravings after Wheatley's famous series. Only thirteen of the fourteen paintings were engraved and they were offered for sale individually or in a portfolio collection. The prints, which were executed in stipple, were engraved by some the most noted engravers in England; artists such as Luigi Schiavonetti, Giovanni Vendramini and Thomas Gaugain all contributed their work to the series. Complete collections of the "Cries" remained immensely popular, and by 1910 they were fetching more than James Audubon's folio "Birds of America" at auction. This lovely print is plate ten in the series and depicts an industrious craftsman mending chairs outside a simple house; St. Paul's is pictured in the background. Roberts F. Wheatley, R.A. His Life and Works London , 1910, pp.28-32.
