        KÖNIGSSEE, BAYERN: DER KÖNIGSSEE BEI BERCHTESGADEN.

      - Magnificent large lithographic view with original colour and highlights shows the Königssee in the south Bavaria in Germany. The lithograph is based on a contemporary painting by Johann Fischbach (1797 Grafenegg - 1871 Munich), who is considered one of the most important representatives of the Austrian Biedermeier style. Fischbach studied paintint at Academy of Fine Arts Vienn under Joseph Mössmer (1780-1845) and won the Grand Prize for landscape painting in 1821. He moved to Salzburg in 1840 and spent the last years of his life in Munich, where he died in 1871. The view was originally published as toned lithography. This example has been contemporarily hand-coloured with stunnung colours and mounted on a card. The originaly black margins have the effect of having definition and majesty of the view.

        Fishermen Returning to Brighton

      London: Published by P. J. de Loutherbourg, and Sold by V. & R. Green, No 14 Percy Street, Bedford Square, 1797. Coloured aquatint. Printed on wove paper, watermarked 1794. In excellent condition. Image size: 9 1/2 x 15 3/4 inches. A wonderful early, separately published impression of Loutherbourg's celebrated image of fishermen on Brighton Beach. This delicate aquatint is an early, separately published state of a print which was later included in Phillip Jacques Loutherbourg's seminal work "Picturesque Scenery of Great Britain." The print, which was re-engraved in 1801 by J. C. Stadler, was enlarged and re-titled "Brighthelmstone, Fishermen Returning." This early example of Loutherbourg's work wonderfully shows his skill as an artist. The composition and arrangement of the image provides a fluidity to the picture that is truly compelling, and demonstrates Loutherbourg's abilities as a draftsman. The son of a court painter in Darmstadt, the versatile artist Philippe Jacques Loutherbourg was born in Fulda, Germany and was a pupil of J. H. Tischbein and Carle Vanloo and Francis Casanova the elder in Paris. His romantic landscapes, battle scenes, portraits, and biblical subjects were highly esteemed and lauded by influential colleagues such as Diderot. He frequently exhibited at the Salon and became a venerated member of the Académie Royale in 1767. In 1771, he moved to England, where he was employed as the principal scenery designer at London's Drury Lane Theatre. His creative and minutely detailed sets revolutionized the genre of scene painting, and he soon began dabbling in costume design. Loutherbourg once again astounded contemporaries in 1782 with his pioneering invention of the "Eidophusikon," a novel variety of moving panorama that was accompanied by music. His substantial and varied oeuvre also included book illustrations and a series of aquatints of British scenery that was published in 1801 and 1805. Aside from a brief trip to Switzerland in 1782, he remained in London for the duration of his life and became heavily engrossed in mysticism.

        "Le tarsier podje / ... vol.13 / des Iles moluques" [original watercolour sketch for 'Le Tarsier / Tarsius Daubentonii']

      Original pencil, bodycolour and watercolour by Audebert, on laid paper. Fine condition. Sheet size: 20 3/4 x 13 3/4 inches. A very fine original watercolour by Audebert: an original of an image that was published as the print titled 'Le Tarsier' in his first great natural history book 'Histoire Naturelle des Singes' (Paris: 1797-1800). Although the present drawing is unsigned, it is clearly by Audebert. This fine watercolour gives some insight into the working methods of one of the most highly respected pioneers of a golden era in natural history publications in France. Audebert, a painter by training, was born at Rochefort. His interest in natural history was stimulated by a commission to help with the preparation of the plates for G. A. Olivier's work on Coleoptera. This drawing is an original for Audebert's Histoire Naturelle des Singes , the only publication of his own work to be completed during his life-time, which was published in ten parts between 1797 and 1800. He died in 1800, in Paris, leaving notes and drawings for a number of other works which were published after his death. Tarsiers are nocturnal, arboreal, insect-eating animals. They live in the coastal rainforests and bamboo thickets of Sumatra, Borneo, Sulawesi, Mindanao and the Philippines.

        An ecclesiastical history, ancient and modern, from the birth of Christ to the beginning of the present century: In which the rise, progress, and variations of Church power are considered in their connexion with the state of learning and philosophy, and the political history of Europe during that period.

      Philadelphia: Pr. by Stephen C. Ustick 6 vols. 8vo (22 cm, 8.625"). I: xxiii, [1 (blank)], [1] pp., pp. xviii?-xxxi, [1 (blank)], 420 pp. II: [2] ff., 571, [1 (blank)] pp. III: [2] ff., 456 pp. IV: [2] ff., 510 pp., [1 (blank)] f. V: [2] ff., 496 pp. VI: [2] ff., 387, [1 (blank)], 8 pp., [10] ff.. 1797 Johann Lorenz von Mosheim (1694?-755) was a professor of theology at Göttingen and his Institutiones historiae ecclesiasticae "was marked by hitherto unprecedented objectivity and penetration, and he may be considered the first of modern ecclesiastical historians" (ODCC). First published in 1726, this work was originally composed in Latin; Archibald Maclaine made this first of two translations into English in 1764. Of this first, 1797 American edition, vols. II?-VI were printed 1798?-99. Printed with ample notes, it has a series of chronological tables at the end. An eight- page Vindication of the Quakers disputing Mosheim's view of that denomination is also appended at the end of vol. VI, just before the list of subscribers. These latter include such noted names as John Adams, then President of the United States, and John Jay, then governor of New York. Contemporary sheep, spine modestly gilt with nice gilt-lettered morocco labels and old-fashioned paper library shelf labels; leather scuffed of old and with joints open, sewing holding. Foxing, browning, and staining, variously, the latter obscuring letters in a few places without loss of sense; some endpapers partially detached. Bookplates on some pastedowns. Untattered and a good, useable set.

        The Rock of Tritchinopoly, taken on the River Cauvery

      London: published by Thomas Daniell, 1797. Aquatint by Thomas & William Daniell, after a drawing by Thomas Daniell, coloured by hand, on 'Whatman' wove paper. Image size: 16 1/2 x 23 1/4 inches. This spectacular view at Tiruchirapelli shows the fort and the great rock on which it is built. The rock "rises abruptly from the bank of the Kaveri river. This natural feature represents the most important position of power in the central Tamil country, commanding the upper delta of this densly populated part of Tamil Nadu. Occupied successively by the Panyas, Cholas and Vijayanagara governors, Tiruchirapelli was occupied by the Nawab of Arcot, under the watchful eye of the British, at the time of the Daniells' visit". ( Martinelli/Michell p.151). The Daniells' Oriental Scenery is considered to be 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 thirteen 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. Consisting of one hundred and forty-four views, published in six parts, the work was issued in seven stages: three sets of twenty-four plates titled Oriental Scenery with title dates of 1795, 1797, and 1801; twelve plates titled Antiquities of India dated 1799; twenty-four plates titled Hindoo Excavations dated 1803; twenty-four plates titled Views in Hindoostan dated 1807; and twelve 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 twenty-four plates of Hindoo Excavations , which are after drawings by James Wales.

        The Seasons, by... Thomson. Illustrated with engravings by ... Bartolozzi... and ... Tomkins ... from original pictures painted for the work by W. Hamilton

      London: printed for P.W. Tomkins, 1797. Folio. (18 x 14 7/8 inches). Half-title, 5 section titles, 5pp. subscribers' list. Stipple engraved emblematic frontispiece by Tomkins, 6 stipple engraved plates (2 by Bartolozzi, 4 by Tomkins), 4 vignette stipple engraved illustrations by Tomkins, 10 stipple-engraved head or tailpieces (4 by Bartolozzi, 6 by Tomkins), all after William Hamilton, engraved dedication leaf. Contemporary blue straight-grained morocco gilt, covers with wide decorative neo-classical border made up from fillets, a drawer-handle roll and a swag and stylized flower head roll, spine in seven compartments with double raised bands, the bands highlighted by rules and roll tools, lettered in the second compartment, the seventh compartment with onlaid label tooled in gilt with two armorial crests (one of the Peters family, the other unidentified), the remaining compartments with repeat decoration of a centrally-placed tool of two birds perched on a bow with crossed arrows behind them, gilt turn-ins, marbled endpapers, edges with alternate bands of gilding and blue staining A deluxe edition of Thomson's famed poem, with stipple-engravings from two of the greatest engravers of their time, and in a magnificent contemporary binding. Thomson's paean to the countryside and the simple country life is now seen as a precursor of the romantic movement in English poetry, as exemplified by Wordsworth and Coleridge. The present edition, published the year before the appearance of the Lyrical Ballads , is perhaps the most luxurious edition of The Seasons ever published.

        Select Specimens of British Plants

      London: printed by W. Bulmer & Co. and sold by G. Nicol, 1797. Part I only (of 2), folio. (22 1/2 x 17 inches). Uncut. 5 plates printed in colours and finished by hand, engraved by William Skelton after drawings by Juliana Strickland (3) and Charlotte Strickland (2). Original paper-backed marbled paper-covered boards, the upper cover with original small format letterpress title label pasted on at the centre original boards A fine unsophisticated copy of the first part of this rare and beautiful illustrated botanical work. The spectacular plates are the chief glory of this work: they are from the drawings of the talented sisters Charlotte and Juliana Strickland, daughters of Sir George Strickland Bt. of Boynton, Yorkshire. From the early 1800s they lived at Apperley Court, Gloucestershire (the home of their brother Henry Eustachius Strickland). As the preface to the present work makes clear, their cousin (and brother-in-law) Strickland Freeman was keen to see their work published, but felt that the engravers and colourists of the day would not be able to do justice to the very fine originals. The publication of Bauer's Delineations of exotick plants ... at Kew in 1796 apparently changed Freeman's mind, and at his own expense he set out to publish (and edit, with the help of Dr. George Shaw) what became the present work. Only two parts with 10 plates ever appeared, but the quality of the plates was recognised and Sir J.E. Smith refers to "those exquisite elaborate plates ... said to be the performances of two ladies, who certainly rank as artists in the first line." The book, complete or incomplete, is very rare. There are only two copies on Copac: the British Library (complete) and Natural History Museum (part 1 only, as here). OCLC adds the Fisher Library in Toronto, and the BSB in Munich, but it is not clear if these last two are complete. Only two complete and two incomplete copies are listed as having sold at auction in the past thirty five years. Cf. BM (NH) II, p.616; cf. Henrey III, 722; cf. Nissen BBI 1904; cf. Pritzel 3037.

        Über das Leben und den Charakter der Kaiserin von Russland Katharina II.

      Leipzig, Georg Joachim Göschen, Altona 1797 - In-8 en feuilles de 160 pp., sous étui et chemise, pièce de titre (cartonnage moderne). Edition originale rare. Essai sur Catherine II de l'aventurier et publiciste Johann Gottfried Seume imprimé à Leipzig en Saxe où il exerçait alors la fonction de correcteur après son départ définitif de l?armée russe. D'origine modeste Johann Gottfried Seume (1763-1810) exerça les métiers les plus divers, de typographe à grenadier dans l?armée russe où il fut lieutenant ; la protection spéciale de Catherine II lui faisait espérer un avenir meilleur lorsque la mort de cette princesse renversa ses plans de fortune. Il revint à Leipzig, corrigea les épreuves d'une imprimerie et donna quelques leçons publiques. « À ce stade, le futur voyageur apparaît comme un publiciste, sans doute reconnu dans des milieux circonscrits, sans, pour autant, jouir encore d?une réputation établie. Ses essais en prose traitent de domaines variés, philosophiques, religieux, esthétiques, politiques, littéraires, mais brillent par un silence étrange à propos de la révolution française, si l?on excepte quelques allusions aux excès de la terreur, dans certains de ses poèmes. À bien des égards, sa production littéraire de cette époque, y compris le recueil de poèmes paru en 1800, ressort davantage du XVIIIe siècle finissant que du romantisme déjà bien entamé en Allemagne. Jusque dans ses poésies relevant du registre sentimental la fibre romantique tant prisée à l?époque fait défaut. Ses essais sur Catherine II et Paul Ier de Russie, ses allusions à Frédéric II de Prusse témoignent de son attachement au despotisme éclairé. » (Marcel Mousseler). Remarqué de quelques contemporains influents, Seume est aussi connu pour le Voyage à pied qu?il fit de Grimma, où il était lecteur chez l?éditeur Göschen, jusqu?à Syracuse. Il mourut pauvre en 1810.

        Mémoires Pour Servir A L\'Histoire Du Jacobinisme: [Première Partie.]

      London/Londres De L´Imprimerie Francoise, Ph. Le Boussonier., 1797. [4 nn S. Titel mit gestochener allegorischer Vignette] xx. 426 S. 8° Halblederband der Zeit mit zwei farbigen goldgeprägten Rückenschilder und ebensolcher Floralverzierung. Wolfstieg I, 6367; Caillet I, 772; Erster Band der ersten Ausgabe des berühmten Werkes des Jesuiten Augustin Barruel (* 2. Oktober 1741 in Villeneuve de Berg, heute zum Département Ardèche; † 5. Oktober 1820 in Paris). Barruel vertritt mit großer Vehemenz die These, daß die Französische Revolution Ergebnis einer Verschwörung von Jakobinern, Aufklärungsphilosophen, Freimaurern und schließlich der Deutschen Illuminaten sei (u.a. Voltaire, Friedrich II., die Enzyklopädisten uvm.)

        Recueil de traités de physique-mathématique par Joseph Fourier, dont la Théorie du mouvement de la chaleur dans les corps solides

      1797 - Paris, Journal de l'Ecole Polytechnique et Mémoires de l'Académie des sciences, 1797-1833, , , demi-chagrin havane, dos à faux nerfs, tête dorée [H. Durand], Cinq extraits, dont quatre concernent la théorie de Joseph Fourier sur la chaleur. Le traité qui ouvre le recueil traite de la statique. Fourier exposa sa célèbre Théorie de la chaleur, définissant les lois mathématiques auxquelles obéit cet élément, pour la première fois devant l'Institut en 1807, puis en 1811. "Cette théorie formera désormais l'une des branches les plus importantes de la physique générale" (En français dans le texte). La Théorie du mouvement de la chaleur ici présentée dans des tirés à part en édition originale (2e et 3e pièces du recueil), forme la première mouture de la Théorie analytique qui fut publiée en 1822. C'est la "copie littérale de la pièce déposée aux archives de l'Institut le 28 septembre 1811. Elle contient tous les principes fondamentaux d'une nouvelle branche de la physique-mathématique : il était nécessaire d'exposer ces principes avant de publier les recherches entreprises depuis par l'auteur sur le même sujet". Elle est accompagnée du titre étonnant sur la chaleur du globe terrestre et "des espaces planétaires". Les pièces sont reliées dans l'ordre suivant : 1. "Mémoire sur la statique, contenant la démonstration du principe des vitesses virtuelles, et la théorie des momens". Extrait du Journal de l'école polytechnique, Ve cahier, 1797. Pages 20 à 60. Important mémoire qui serait tiré, selon Arago, de l'une des leçons de Fourier à l'École polytechnique. 2 et 3. "Théorie du mouvement de la chaleur dans les corps solides". Extrait des Mémoires de l'Académie des sciences, tome IV, année 1819 (impression en 1824). Pages 185 à 556. [Et la] "Suite du mémoire intitulé Théorie du mouvement de la chaleur dans les corps solides". Extrait des Mémoires de l'Académie royale des sciences, tome V, années 1821-1822 (impression en 1826). Pages 153 à 246. Premières éditions. Sans la planche dépliante qui accompagne le premier mémoire. 4. "Mémoire sur la température du globe terrestre et des espaces planétaires". Extrait des Mémoires de l'Académie des sciences, vol. 7, 1827. Pages 569 à 622. Reparution de ce mémoire qui avait été publié en 1824 dans les Annales de Chimie et de Physique (vol. 27, 1824). Fourier applique ici sa théorie de la chaleur à la température du globe terrestre et "des espaces planétaires", en distinguant trois causes de cette température : les rayons du Soleil, la température de l’espace , la chaleur interne datant de la formation de la Terre. 5. "Mémoire d'analyse sur le mouvement de la chaleur dans les fluides". Extrait des Mémoires de l'Académie des sciences, tome XII, 1833. Pages 507 à 530. Première édition ; mémoire lu le 4 septembre 1820 et jamais imprimé auparavant. Joseph Fourier (1768-1830) fut successivement titulaire de la chaire d'analyse mathématique à l'École polytechnique tout juste fondée, secrétaire perpétuel de l'Académie créée par Bonaparte au Caire, préfet de l'Isère, membre de l'Académie des sciences, puis de l'Académie française. Ses recherches scientifiques se sont avant tout portées sur les mathématiques. Étiquette ex-libris d'Henri Viellard et cachets de l'Institut catholique de Paris annulé. Étiquette en pied du dos. Légers frottements au dos. Rousseurs éparses, quelques feuillets brunis. DSB V, p. 94 et suiv. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        CONSTANTINOPLE ANCIENT AND MODERN, WITH EXCURSIONS TO THE SHORES AND ISLANDS OF THE ARCHIPELAGO AND THE TROAD

      London, 1797. Quarto. Contemporary diced russia, rebacked in matching style, spine gilt. Very minor soiling, some offsetting from plates. About very good. The author spent over a year in Constantinople as chaplain to the British embassy for the Ottoman Empire, from March 1794 to October 1795. He was already of some note as a writer, and this work "was well regarded in its time, [and] helped to awaken interest in the ancient manuscripts to be found there, and contributed to the debate on the location of ancient Troy" (DNB). Besides descriptions of the city, Dallaway travelled with British ambassador Linton to find the site of ancient Troy. The handsome plates show views of Turkey, a Turkish woman, and various ruins including the Tomb of Apollo, and the Plain of Troy.

        The State of the Poor: or, an History of the Labouring Classes in England, from the Conquest to the present period, in which are particularly considered, their Domestic Economy, with respect to diet, dress, fuel, and habitation, and the various Plans which, from time to time, have been proposed and adopted, for the Relief of the Poor: together with Parochial Reports relative to the Administration of Work-houses, and Houses of Industry: the State of Friendly Societies: and other Public Institutions: in several Agricultural, Commercial and Manufacturing Districts With a Large Appendix; containing a comparative and chronological table of the prices of labour, of provisions, and of other commodities; an account of the poor in Scotland, and many original documents on subjects of national importance In Three Volumes

      London: Printed by J. Davis, for B. & J. White; G.G. & J. Robinson...&c. &c 1797 First edition. Handsomely bound in twentieth century quarter antique-style calf over marbled boards with vellum-tipped corners. Spines ruled in gilt with burgundy morocco labels. Three volumes, quarto. Complete with the three half-titles, the errata leaf (in first volume), the Directions to the Binder (end of third volume), the folding Conversion Table for the Appendix (third volume), and the nine supplemental starred leaves (one in the second volume and eight in the third). A little spotting and foxing in places and some upper margins soiled but overall an excellent untrimmed copy. Eden (1766-1809), a disciple of Adam Smith, was led to embark on his investigation by the high prices brought on by the war in 1794 and 1795, and the harsh effect they had on the living conditions of the poorer classes. His results were published in three volumes, "the first containing a description of the condition of the laboring classes and an analysis of its causes, the other two the supporting facts in the form of parochial reports on the administration of workhouses and houses of industry, friendly societies, and other charitable organizations, with a lengthy series of appendixes, including tables of prices and wages and a list of works on poverty and its alleviation. Eden's own work, notwithstanding its originality, might now be forgotten if it were not for the invaluable collection of facts attached to it, which can never cease to be of importance. More valuable even than these, however, is the method he adopted of obtaining and systemizing statistically the details of so diffuse a problem; it has proved the basis of sociological investigation ever since. Perhaps the greatest tribute to Eden's achievement is that paid to him by Karl Marx in Das Kapital. Not forgetting Malthus, he described Eden as the only pupil of Adam Smith who achieved anything of any significance during the eighteenth century" (Printing and the Mind of Man, 249).

Bensley, along with Bulmer, is credited with elevating the standards of British printing. H. V. Marot, writing of The Seasons title page, calls it "one of the most remarkable exhibitions of virtuosity to be found in any place or age.Considered as a piece of sheer technical exuberance, both of material and structural complexity, it takes one's breath away." He follows with a detailed analysis of those 19 lines which use 6 founts of type in thirteen varieties. The hand colored engravings are delicately done. Abbey Life #252. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
