        Hollyhocks, Pineapples, Grapes, Melons, Plums, Pomegranate, Walnuts, Pears and Berries on a Marble Ledge with a Goldfinch

      - “Hollyhocks, Pineapples, Grapes, Melons, Plums, Pomegranate, Walnuts, Pears and Berries on a Marble Ledge with a Goldfinch” Watercolor and bodycolor on paper with inscription “J Van Os fecit: 1796” 20 1/2” x 26”, 26” x 31 1/2” framed under glass Jan van Os, Dutch painter and poet, founded the van Os dynasty of painters, which included his daughter Maria Margaretta van Os, a painter of flowers, and his grandson Pieter Frederick van Os, painter of landscapes. After moving to the Hague at an early age, van Os was apprenticed to Aert Schouman. He later studied with the most accomplished Dutch flower painter of the period, Jan van Huysum (1682-1749). Although van Os started his career with paintings of seascapes in the manner of Jan van de Cappelle, a genre that he continued to serve throughout his life, he was most famous for his still-lives of fruit and flowers in the manner of Jan van Huysum. His work was highly valued throughout Europe, exhibited in England, France and Germany. This large and extravagant watercolor is in the best tradition of Dutch still life painting, replete with trompe l’oeil effects and startlingly realistic details, including dewdrops, a fly, bird and butterfly. Heightening the work’s sense of drama is the finely rendered landscape in the background. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        OBRAS DE GARCILASO DE LA VEGA, ILUSTRADAS CON NOTAS.

      Imp. Sancha. Madrid, 1796 - . 12,5 cm. XXXIV-212 pág. (sign. A-Z4, 2A-G4, 2H3). Frontis con retrato del autor dibujado por Ximeno y grabado por Selma. Enc. en pasta española, tejuelo, florones, cortes pintados. Firma de anteriores poseedores en recto y verso de la portada. * Garcilaso de la Vega (1501-1536) es, con toda probabilidad, el mejor autor lírico del siglo XVI y uno de los poetas que, a pesar de su corta vida, más transformó y perfeccionó la poesía española. Presentamos una de las ediciones anotadas por Azara, de quien dice Palau que: "El diplomático José Nicolás de Azara, hombre de gusto refinado, examinó y comparó siete ediciones distintas y un antiguo manuscrito, dando a la estampa una nítida y primorosa edición que casi podemos calificar de definitiva". Nuestro ejemplar había pertenecido, como lo atestiguan las firmas de propiedad, a don Juan Francisco Adana y posteriormente a don Baltasar Mogrovejo y Ulzurrun. El primero fue autor de un volumen de poesías dedicadas a don Nicolás Centurión y Vera, marqués de La Lapilla, que se imprimió en Madrid en 1800 a cargo de la viuda e hijo de Marín. Adana ejerció también por esa época como secretario de la Real Sociedad Económica de La Rioja Castellana. En cuanto al segundo, lo encontramos como administrador en Castro Urdiales en 1835 (véase Estado de los empleados que componen la Real Hacienda de España en fin de junio de 1835. por Narciso Ferrer y Jou. Imp. José Palacios. Madrid, 1835) y como director de tercera y jefe de estación de primera de la sección de Material de Telégrafos a mediados del siglo XIX (véase El indicador de Madrid para el año de 1858 ó sea índice general de los principales habitantes. por Fernando Domingo López.

        De l'économie politique et morale de l'espèce humaine.

      London, Cooper & Graham, 1796. - (12 ll.), 408 pp.; (2 ll.), 454 pp. 2 volumes. 8°, contemporary mottled calf, spine gilt, slight wear at extremities. Occasional light browning and faint dampstains, but overall a handsome set. Signature of the Conde de Rio Maior Antonio on each half-title. 2 volumes. ---- FIRST EDITION. Herrenschwand, along with Quesnay, favors agriculture and a balance between production and consumption. With Adam Smith, he believes in the beneficial influence of high wages. In opposition to both of them, however, he considers foreign trade an evil. In @Du vrai gouvernement des peuples de la terre, London & Paris, 1801-2, he advocates his favorite remedy for economic ills: an increased number of independent consumers ("consommateurs indépendants par excellence") with an increased supply of coined precious metals.The author was a judge in the Swiss regiments in the French service, and in 1805 was an old man living in Paris. He has often been confused with his brother, Johann Friedrich, a Swiss physician who died in Bern in 1796; in fact, @BMC and @NUC both list this work under Johann Friedrich Herrenschwand's name. ---- Kress B.3197.

Wittlich die Edition, die kurzzeitig wohl durch die Napoleonische Besetzung Kurhessens zum Stillstand kam. Der sehr seltene, bibliographisch kaum nachweisbare siebte Band (1808) wurde dem Titel nach offenbar wieder von Kopp betreut; die letzte Lieferung (in getrennter Paginierung) endet mit dem Stichwort 'Rauch-Taback'. - Der Rechtswissenschafter und Paläograph Kopp (1762-1834) "trat nach vollendeter Studienzeit in Hessen-Kassel’sche Staatsdienste und erhielt zunächst eine Stelle als Assessor bei der Regierung in Kassel. 1788 wurde er zum Justizrath und Mitglied der Oberwegecommission, 1793 zum Regierungsrath, 1797 zum Geheimen Referendar und Landsecretär ernannt. 1802 übertrug ihm Landgraf Wilhelm IX. die Direction des Hofarchivs, 1803 wurde er mit dem Titel eines Geheimen Cabinetsraths ausgezeichnet [.] Im Januar 1804 schied er unter ehrender Anerkennung seiner Verdienste aus dem Staatsdienste aus, um sich nun ganz den Studien hinzugeben. Bereits mehrfach war er auf historisch-juristischem Gebiete schriftstellerisch thätig gewesen. Schon 1788 waren seine 'Beiträge zur Geschichte des Salzwerkes in den Soden bei Allendorf' erschienen, 1794 gab er das von seinem Vater begonnene Werk 'Ueber die Verfassung der heimlichen Gerichte in Westphalen' heraus. Das 'Handbuch zur Kenntniß der Hessen-Kassel’schen Landesverfassung und Rechte in alphabetischer Ordnung' ist nach Plan und Anlage sein Werk [.] In Anerkennung seiner litterarischen Verdienste ertheilte die juristische Facultät in Göttingen K. 1804 die Doctorwürde. Das für Kurhessen so verhängnißvolle Jahr 1806 veranlaßte ihn sich nach Baden zurückzuziehen. Anfänglich lebte er in Heidelberg und las an der dortigen Universität über Diplomatik; 1808 wurde er zum Honorarprofessor daselbst ernannt. Später privatisirte er in Mannheim. Paläographische Studien beschäftigten ihn seit seinem Rücktritt ins Privatleben fast ausschließlich" (ADB).

        Leonora.

      London - J. Edwards, and E. and S. Harding 1796 - An uncommon first English editionofLeonora by W. R. Spencer. Rebound in paper-covered boards. First English Edition. Uncommon. An exceptional copy of these exceptional illustrations. Illustrated by Lady Diana Beauclerc. William Robert Spencer, 1769 1834, was an English poet and wit. He was educated at Harrow School and Christ Church, University of Oxford but left without receiving a degree. Spencer's wit made him a popular member of society, and belonged to the Whig set of Charles James Fox and Sheridan. He was an accomplished writer of 'occasional' verse, which was warmly praised by Scott and Byron. He wrote graceful vers de socit, In 1796 he published an English version of Brger's Leonore, which was highly thought of by Scott, and others, and in 1802 he burlesqued German romance in his Urania, which was produced on the stage at Drury Lane. After a life of extravagance Spencer died in poverty in Paris. (DNB)Gottfried August Brger, 1747 1794, was a German poet. Originally a student of theology, Brger abandoned this for the study of jurisprudence. His lifestyle was considered wild, however he befriended men of literary tastes and by 1771 was already a popular poet. Brger became distract magistrate, but later gave up the post. He had a misadventure with farming, and instead established himself as where he established himself as Privatdozent. In 1787 he was given an honorary doctor of philosophy, from Gttingen University, and in 1789 was appointed extraordinary professor in that faculty. Brger's talent for popular poetry was very considerable and his ballads are among the finest in the German language. Lady Diana Beauclerk, 1734 1808, was an English noblewoman and artist. She was introduced to art at an early age and Joshua Reynolds, an artist, was a family friend. She married Frederick St John, 2nd Viscount Bolingbroke in 1757, and from 17621768 was lady of the bedchamber to Queen Charlotte. Her marriage was unhappy and Bolingbroke was notoriously unfaithful. In February of 1768 he petitioned for divorce on grounds of adultery. Within two days she married Topham Beauclerk of Old Windsor. Their circle of friends included Samuel Johnson, Georgiana Cavendish, Edward Gibbon, David Garrick, Charles Fox, James Boswell and Edmund Burke. Beauclerk illustrated a number of literary productions, including Horace Walpole's tragedy The Mysterious Mother, the English translation of Gottfried August Brger's Leonora and The Fables of John Dryden. Condition: The binding is tight and firm. There is almost no wear to the extremities. Internally the pages have some very slight browning, with the occasional spot. Overall thecondition is very good.

        Memorie Storiche Dell'Antichissimo Municipio Ora Terra Dell'Ariccia e Delle Sue Colonie Genzano, E Nemi, Dedicate a Sua Eccellenza Il Signor D. Agostino Chigi

      Presso I Lazzarini, Rome 1796 - Book. 4to - over 9¾ - 12" tall. xii, 502 pp. Full and rich history of Ariccia and surrounding towns on the outskirts of Rome, to the Southeast of the City by Castel Gandolfo (the Papal Summer Residence). Ariccia is one of the most ancient cities in Italy, dating to at least the ninth century B.C. This history concentrates mostly on the seventeenth and eighteenth century when it was ruled by the powerful Savelli Chigi family, which produced one pope, Alexander VII, and built a grand residence in the town that has been used many a time as a movie set, such as in Visconti's "Il Gattopardo" ("The Leopard"). While it is over two millenia since the town yielded to Rome's preeminence as a city, Ariccia continued to be the next most important city in Lazio for long stretches of history owing to its propitious location on the Via Appia, the first way station on the road between Rome and Naples, and its pleasant, salubrious climate, in contrast to malalial Rome, made it a favored resort for the powerful of Rome in prior centuries. This copy of the history, a model of municipal histories in its day, is very good. There is some light and occasional foxing, yet little that could be considered disconcerting. The exception would be the four places where a prior owner presses leaves, which left a residue and in one instance, may have created a tiny wormhole type of hole. However, the small amount of loss has no effect on readability where it occurred. The vellum has an attractive mottled, almost tiger striped design. Book is tight. Occasional light pencil notes, a word or two in each case, affecting a handful of pages. Still a very good copy. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Medint Abou, Thebes

      - An extremely detailed Hand-colored Lithograph by DAVID ROBERTS (1796-1864) illustrating scenes in the Middle East, from his breathtaking series The Holy Land, Syria, Idumea, Arabia, Egypt, and Nubia, which was published in London in 1842-1849. Overall this print measures 17 1/2” x 24”. At the turn of the nineteenth century, as the science of archaeology was rising, teams of scholars set out to navigate unknown regions, seeking to understand history through the analysis of ancient ruins and artifacts. In choosing Egypt and the Holy Land as his destinations, Roberts reflected the enduring fascination of Western European culture with the ancient Middle East. Born into humble circumstances in a rural town outside Edinburgh, Roberts set out with little, but he returned with a bounty of sketches and a portfolio he described as "the most interesting that has ever left the country." To pay for his trip, he drained his own finances and undertook the adventure alone--breaking the longstanding British tradition of artists traveling as members of a wealthy patron's entourage. The first British artist to explore the Middle East, Roberts presented his views of the region in the monumental volumes The Holy Land, Syria , Idumea, Arabia , Egypt, and Nubia. Keenly observed and minutely detailed, his images made the region more tangible and accessible than ever before. Yet despite his commitment to accuracy, Roberts lost nothing of romanticism, using light color, and atmosphere to stage a spectacle that convinced as it captivated, evoking an aura of exoticism as part of his realistic view. Published in series during the years 1842 to 1849, these astonishingly beautiful hand-tinted lithographs redefined the Orient for the British public. Standing out as an iconic pieces in any collection, Roberts’ views are significant not only in terms of history but also as the visual expression of how art can bring a distant region within one's own realm. Overall this print is in very good condition with some light foxing and a few creases/small tears.

        View of the City of Ten-Tchoo from the anchorage of the Hindostan in the Strait of Mi-A-Tau bearing South-west

      Published by George Nicol, London 1796 - This sweeping series of views is from Staunton's seminal text "An Authentic Account of an Embassy from the King of Great Britain to the Emperor of China", which was a record of the Earl of Macartney's embassy to the Emperor of China. Macartney was dispatched to Beijing in 1792, traveling via Madeira, Tenerife, Rio de Janeiro, the Cape of Good Hope and Indonesia. He was accompanied by Staunton, and a retinue of suitably impressive size, including Staunton's 11-year-old son who was nominally the ambassador's page. On the embassy's arrival in China it emerged that the 11-year-old was the only European member of the embassy able to speak Mandarin, and thus the only one able to converse with the Emperor. The embassy, the first such to China, had two objectives: the first to register with the Emperor, British displeasure at the treatment that the British merchants were receiving from the Chinese, the second to gain permission for a British minister to be resident in China. The first objective was achieved, the second was not. Macartney was twice granted an audience with the Emperor and in December 1793 he was sumptuously entertained by the Chinese viceroy in Canton, and returned to England via Macao and St. Helena, arriving in September 1794. This important text produced some of the earliest accurate maps of the interior of China and provided many invaluable geographical and cultural observations. This rare print depicts the Shantung Peninsula, and includes one harbor view and two elevations printed on one sheet. The top elevation depicts Cape Macartney and Staunton's Head from the north east, while the middle elevation shows Cape Macartney and Cape Gower from the north west. At the bottom is a view of the city of Ten-Tchoo-Foo from the ocean. Brunet V,525; Cordier Sinica 2381-2383; Cox I, 344; Hill p.280; Lust 545. Engraving. Printed on wove Whatman paper watermarked 1794. In excellent condition with the exception of being trimmed within the platemark on lower edge of left margin. Image size: 20 x 28 1/4 inches.

        Camilla: Or a Picture of Youth

      London: for T. Payne; and T. Cadell Jun and W. Davies (Successors to Mr. Cadell),, 1796. By the Author of Evelina and Cecilia. In Five Volumes. 5 volumes, 12mo. Attractively bound in contemporary red half morocco, flat spines ruled in compartments with two-line bands, titled and numbered in gilt in two compartments, others with small flower-head tools gilt at centre, marbled sides, blue endpapers, green silk bookmarks. Half-titles discarded by the contemporary binder as often, but with the final advert leaf in vol. I. Irish armorial bookplates of FitzPatrick of Grantstown Manor, Queen's County. A little rubbing, but an excellent set in a handsome contemporary binding. First edition of Fanny Burney's third novel and her most spectacular success in commercial terms. The list of subscribers includes leading society figures and dignitaries, alongside the bluestockings, surviving members of the Johnson circle like Bennet Langton and Hester Thrale, and fellow women writers Anne Radcliffe, Hannah More, Maria Edgeworth and Jane Austen, then an unknown 20-year-old. The author was paid £1,000 for the copyright and gained at least as much again from the subscription. The sale was even more rapid than it had been for Cecilia, with almost all the 4,000 copies disposed of by November 1796. The profits enabled the newly-married D'Arblays to build their own house, which they called Camilla Cottage.

Poggendorf II, 846 First Edition, exeedingly rare, no copy sold at auctions within the last 40 years. 1796 veröffentlichte Schroeter ein Werk über die Venus, die Aphroditographischen Fragmente. Er hatte festgestellt, dass zwischen der geometrisch berechneten Phase der Venus und der tatsächlich beobachteten Phase systematische Unterschiede bestehen. Zunächst meinte Schroeter, dass diese Unregelmässigkeiten, wie beim Erdmond, auf Oberflächendetails, z. B. Gebirgszüge, zurückgehen. In einer 1803 veröffentlichten Arbeit über die Venusphase zum Zeitpunkt der Dichotomie (Halbvenus) folgerte er dann allerdings korrekt, dass es sich um Dämmerungseffekte in der Venusatmosphäre handelt. Daher wird diese Erscheinung heute allgemein nach der von Patrick Moore eingeführten Bezeichnung "Schroeter-Effekt" genannt. Der Effekt kann bereits mit kleinen Teleskop leicht als "Venushörner" beobachtet werden. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Watermark incorporating a star within a shield. Moderately worn and soiled; some light foxing, heavier to title of first violin part. First violin part with old paper reinforcement to spine. Portion of imprint removed from title. . First Edition, later issue. Kinsky-Halm p. 12 (first issue). Weinhold/Dorfmüller p. 256. Hirsch IV, 241. For other issues see Hoboken 2, 27-30. In the first issue the opus number is printed as "IV" and the price "f2." In the present issue "4" appears in manuscript and there is no printed price. In addition, the number "11-1/2B" is printed at the foot of the first page of music in the "Violino Primo" part, most probably a printer's notation referring to the number of sheets required to print the part. Opus 4 is an original work, drawing on material from Beethoven's then-unpublished Octet for Winds (op. 103), "... with revisions sufficient to warrant calling it a new composition." Solomon: Beethoven, p. 102. "At some time before February 1791, probably when he was composing the C major Piano Sonata, Op. 2, no. 3, with its closely related opening theme, Beethoven re-cast the Octet (op. 103) as a String Quintet, Op. 4, and comparison of the two versions shows considerable light on his development as an instrumental composer during those four important formative years... The Quintet is by no means an arrangement of the Octet; unlike Mozart's parallel recasting of his Octet for the same combination of instruments (K.388) as a String Quintet (K.406), it is in many respects a new work. Everything has become more plastic; stiff formulae are softened; the texture is lightened in weight but enriched by polyphony and the devices of 'obbligato accompaniment'. The harmony, too, has become richer... Structurally everything is worked out in the Quintet on lines that are at the same time broader and subtler: the exposition of the first movement of the Quintet is 88 bars long as compared with the 69 of the Octet, the development 77 as compared with 56. The sixteen-bar periods that open minuet and trio of the Octet are expanded to 22 and 24 bars respectively in the Quintet, and the structure becomes much clearer, less fussy... All in all, it is hardly an exaggeration to say that the difference between Octet and Quintet represents the whole difference between the "al fresco," serenade music that was just going out of fashion and the new finely wrought quartet style of late Haydn with its 'openwork texture,' its so called 'durchbrochene Arbeit' ". Gerald Abraham in The New Oxford History of Music Vol. VIII: The Age of Beethoven 1790-1830, p. 260. The autograph of the work is untraced.

        The Fables …

      London, by T. Bensley for J. Edwards and E. & S. Harding,, 1796. ornamented with engravings from the pencil of the Right Hon. Lady Diana Beauclerc. London, by T. Bensley for J. Edwards and E. Harding, 1797; [bound with:] BÃœRGER, Gottfried Augustus. Lenora. Translated from the German … by W. R. Spencer. With designs by the Right Honourable Lady Diana Beauclerc. Two works bound in one volume, folio (365 × 255 mm). Fine contemporary binding of green straight-grain morocco, spine attractively gilt in compartments with interlocking wave tools, gilt lettered in second panel, sides with thick-and-thin rule enclosing a floral scroll border in gilt, gilt inner dentelles, pink endpapers, gilt edges, the fore-edge gauffered. Fables: 9 engraved plates, 15 engraved vignettes; Leonora: engraved frontispiece, 4 engraved plates, 4 engraved vignettes, most signed by Bartolozzi after Beauclerc. Leonora with parallel text, German and English. A little rubbing, some offsetting and faint browning, a most attractive pair. First editions with these Bartolozzi engravings, the only two works illustrated by Lady Diana Beauclerc, here together in handsome contemporary full morocco. Dryden's adaptations of Chaucer and Boccaccio were among the chief reasons for his perhaps surprisingly high place in the esteem of the Romantic poets, especially Coleridge, Keats, Byron and Scott, while Bürger's Leonora inspired a frenzy of competing English versions around this time. Ironically Bürger had found his ballad form not in German literature, but largely through the medium of Percy's Reliques; from Leonora it was reabsorbed into English through the Lyrical Ballads, most directly Wordsworth's The Idiot Boy.
