        Voyage dans l'intérieur de la Chine et en Tartarie fait dans les années 1 EDITION ORIGINALE

      A Paris: Chez Buisson, 1798. Fine. Chez Buisson, A Paris 1798 - 1799, In-8 (12,5x19,5cm), (4) viij, 515pp. et (4) 412pp. et (4) 399pp. et (4) 326pp. et (4) ij, 402pp. ; (2) 30Pl., 5 volumes reliés. - First edition of the first 4 volumes published in 1798, and the fifth volume in supplement containing a precise account of the history of China and the trip to China and Tartary of Huttner, as well as of the 32-sheet atlas, which also appears for the first time. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Edition originale des 4 premiers volumes parus en 1798, et du 5e volume de 1799 en supplément contenant un précis de l'histoire de la Chine et le voyage en chine et en Tartarie de Huttner, ainsi que de l'atlas de 32 planches (moeurs chinoises, pieds des femmes chinoises, costumes, architecture...) et qui paraît également pour la première fois dans la seconde édition. Les 4 premiers volumes contiennent 4 frontispices et 3 grandes cartes dépliantes en fin du tome 4 (excellentes cartes du voyage, de la Chine...). Nombreux tableaux en fin du volume 4, sur le commerce, la monnaie... 39 planches dont 4 frontispices, 4 cartes. Reliures en pleine basane brune marbrée d'époque. Dos lisses ornés de 2 types de fers caissonnés et de roulettes. Pièces de titre en maroquin rouge et de tomaison en maroquin vert. Dentelle d'encadrement sur les plats. Coiffes de tête des tome I et 4 arrachées. Une partie de la coiffe de tête du tome 2 arrachée. Coiffes de queue des tomes 1 et 2 élimées. Mors supérieur du tome 1 fendu. 2 trous de vers le long du mors inférieur du tome 5. Les 4 premiers volumes frottés. Mors supérieur du tome 4 ouvert en queue. Epidermures sur le dos du tome 2. Le tome 5, bien que très proche des 4 premiers est très sensiblement différent (typographie différente pour la pièce de titre, fers semblables), et ne semble pas avoir connu le même relieur, mais un meilleur relieur. Les planches 33 et 34 ont été reliés dans le texte du volume 5. Ex libris gravé aux armes : Bibliothèque du château de Menneval. Ce voyage fut assemblé d'après les papiers de Lord Macartney ainsi que des commandants et des ambassadeurs du voyage par le secrétaire de Macartney, sir George Staunton. Macartney fut envoyé en Chine sur ordre du roi george III en ambassade extraordinaire pour la première fois dans le but d'établir des relations commerciales, de rencontrer les élites chinoises et de rapporter de son voyage toutes les observations possibles. Il embarqua à Portsmouth avec trois navires, Le lion, l'Indostan et le Chacal. Macartney traversa en grande partie le pays en s'arrêtant à Tianjin et Pekin. Cependant, en raison de coutumes différentes, l'ambassade fut un échec complet. Pour les Chinois, les relations dipomatiques ne pouvaient se faire sur un pied d'égalité, les ambassadeurs devaients se prosterner devant l'empereur et lui prêter allégeance, ce que Macartney refusa, celui-ci ne pouvant accepter une quelconque subordination du roi d'Angleterre à l'empereur de Chine. Le rejet catégorique chinois des relations commerciales entraînèrent les prémices de ce qui constituera les guerres de l'opium et la chute de l'empire chinois.  L'ouvrage demeure une des meilleures descriptions des contrées traversées par Macartney, offrant des informations précises sur les sciences, l'histoire naturelle, l'aristocratie... et sera eminemment utile aux suiveurs de Macartney.

        L'oraison dominicale d'un habitant d'Unterwalde; suite de sept scènes de la Révolution helvétique.Basel, the author and Schoell et Cie, 1803. 4to (29.5 x 22 cm). With 8 brush etchings or aquatints, including the title page, mounted on green paper with letterpress captions, interleaved with tissue guards. Contemporary gold-tooled calf, black sheepskin spine-label, gilt edges.

      - Boerma, "Vaterunser Parodien in den Niederlanden, in Bayern, in der Schweiz" in: Arbeitskreis Bild Druck Papier XIV, pp. 39-41; Brunet V, cols. 1020-1021; Füssli, Allgemeines Künstlerlexicon, II. Theil, p. 4054; WorldCat (2 copies). Rare edition with the French captions, of a print series "plunged in noble bile" (Füssli) on the misery of a peasant in the Helvetic Republic (1798-1803). This so-called Bauernvaterunser, a type of parody in which the miseries of peasants during war are placed opposite the Lord's Prayer, tells the story of a shepherd who loses his home and his son during the war. Living the life of a beggar together with his grandson, he watches his community being torn apart. The print series refers to the uprising of Unterwalden in 1798 against the Helvetic Republic. During the following punitive expedition, the French army killed 368 inhabitants, including numerous women and children. In the print series however, it is a local "traitor" who sets fire to the shepherd's cabin and whom the shepherd later encounters in the woods. Together with the final plate, which mentions that even the most enlightened and distinguished men were torn apart from their families, this indicates that the author viewed the conflict above all as a local strife that divided the community.Johann Martin Usteri (1763-1827) was a Swiss poet and artist, known for his satirical works. His print series on Unterwalden was simultaneously published in German, French and English in 1803 and as copper engravings in 1805 in Augsburg and London. Several parodies appeared in which the positive aspects of the Helvetic Republic were highlighted. With the binding worn at the extremities and front with two small holes near the spine. Endpapers somewhat browned and spotted and tissue guards with a few spots. Fore-edge margin of the title and final leaf soiled; a very good copy.

        Histoire naturelle, génerale et particulière, par Leclerc de Buffon; nouvelle edition, accompagnée de notes et dans laquelle les supplémens sont insérés dans le premier texte, à la place qui leur convient. L'on y a ajouté l'histoire naturelle des quadrupèdes et des oiseaux découverts depuis la mort de Buffon, celle des reptiles, des poissons, des insectes et des vers; enfin, l'histoire des plantes, dont se grand naturaliste n'a pas eu le tems de s'occuper. Ouvrage formant un cours complet d'Histoire naturelle. (In 127 volumes - complete).

      - Paris, Dufart, An VII (1798 or 1799) - XIII (1804 or 1805). In 127 volumes. 8vo (19 x 12 cm. Text and 1,122 (or 1,123, or 1153 - for counting see below) engraved plates, the sections on reptiles and molluscs finely hand-coloured, two portraits, eight maps, 21 folded tables and chart. Uniform full tree calf rich gilt spines, Gilt titles on two red morocco labels, marbled flyleaves, all sides marbled.l A remarkable, complete set of one of the best illustrated and most scientifically important editions (because of its many new discoveries, including descriptions of new species) of the famous "Comte de Buffon" natural history series, in fine condition. It is especially important because of the herpetological section by Daudin, and the Mollusca by Denys de Montfort. These two parts are in the rare, original hand-coloured version. The Daudin has 100 coloured or tinted engraved plates and the Denys de Montfort has 72 coloured or tinted engraved plates. The birds (Oiseaux) and fish (Poissons) were done by Sonnini himself, the insects (Crustacés et Insectes) by Latreille, and the plants (Plantes) by Brisseau-Mirbel - all important contributions to this enormous project. The set is divided as follows. 1-3. Terre 1-3, 5 plates (plus one portrait); 4. Epoques 1, 3 plates; 5-7. Histoire des minéraux 1-3, 16 plates; 8-16. Mineraux 1-9, 3 plates; 17. Animaux 1, 7 plates; 18-21. Homme 1-4, 13 plates; 22-34 Quadrupèdes 1-13, 231 plates (however, in volume 32 there two "plates" on one leaf. If both are counted separately, then the total number should be 1,123]; 35-36, Singes 1-2, 79 plates; 37-64. Oiseaux 1-28, 257 plates (I-CCLVI, XLIIIbis); 65-77. Poissons 1-13, 80 plates (LXXVII, I-IIIbis, plus one portrait); 78. Cetacés "14", 5 plates; 79-86. Reptiles 1-8, 100 plates; 87-92. Mollusques 1-6, 72 plates; 93-106. Insectes 1-14, 113 plates (I-CXIII, XCVIIbis); 107-124. Plantes 1-18, 151 plates (XVI used twice); 125-127. Tables. With a total of 1,122 plates, two portraits, eight maps, 21 folded tables and charts, and numerous tables in the text. The entire set is complete in a contemporary uniform binding, but one volume in the bird section ("Histoire Naturelle des Oiseaux") was bound recently, with a few labels renewed, and matching the original very well. Apart from some small defects and bumps to the bindings, a few volumes with some marginal worm traces (not effecting text), the set looks quite spectacular as a whole and is in very good condition. None of the bibliographies dares to name the number of plates, except Nissen, which lists 1,100 plates and six maps. This, however, is obviously incorrect and looking back in our records the number of plates varies from 1118 to 1143 plates, but it is not always clear with respect to the separately mentioned maps, portraits and/or folding tables. If we count the portraits and large, folded maps/charts too, our total is 1,153; the highest number on record. Some scuffing and rubbing to spines and boards, some volumes with small bumps and chips, three volumes ("Mineraux" section) with a few tiny wormholes to spine. Some scattered light stains or soiling, but never in the image area of the plates. Overall, a wonderful set in very good condition, in a very attractive binding and super complete state.

        Lettre autographe signée (1851) à Joseph Autran

      - Delacroix (Eugène) (1798-1863) Peintre français Lettre autographe signée, 1er janvier 1851, au poète Joseph Autran, 2 pages in-8, enveloppe. « Monsieur, je m’étais flatté qu’il me serait possible de me présenter chez vous avant la séance de l’Académie pour y solliciter en personne ainsi que l’usage et les convenances l’exigent impérieusement, l’honneur de votre suffrage. Il me faut renoncer à cette démarche dont je vous prie de vouloir bien m’attribuer l’abstention qu’à une indisposition obstinée qui me retient chez moi depuis quinze jours et qui pourrait compromettre gravement ma santé si je m’exposais au froid avant sa guérison. Veuillez agréer, Monsieur, avec l’expression de l’admiration la plus sincère, celle de ma haute considération. Eu. Delacroix ». Joseph Autran (1813-1877) était un poète et auteur dramatique français. Autran entra à l’Académie française en 1867. Eugène Delacroix entra à l’Académie des Beaux-Arts en 1857 après sept tentatives infructueuses.

        Le Coste Nord Ovest dell'America e Nord Est dell'Asia delineate sille ultime osservazioni del Cap. Cook

      Roma 1798 - EDIZIONE ORIGINALE, COLORITURA COEVA - Bella e decorativa carta geografica delle coste dall'America settentrionale all'Asia, passando dall'Alaska alla Siberia, per illustrare le allora recenti scoperte del capitano Cook. Tratta dal "Nuovo Atlante Geografico Universale delineato sulle ultime osservazioni", edito a Roma dal 1792 fino al 1801, opera che la Calcografia Camerale commissionò al Cassini al fine di sostituire l’ormai obsoleto "Mercurio Geografico". Giovanni Maria Cassini, Chierico Regolare Somasco fu geografo e cartografo, ma anche intagliatore di architetture e prospettive - uno dei migliori discepoli di Giovanni Battista Piranesi - Cassini fu uno degli ultimi sferografi italiani del Settecento ed i suoi globi ebbero una notevole diffusione, come pure questo "Nuovo Atlante Geografico". Incisione in rame, coloritura coeva dei contorni, leggere bruniture, per il resto in ottimo stato di conservazione. L'Atlante del Cassini fu ristampato dalla Calcografia Camerale nel primo quarto del XIX secolo, prima del 1839. Solo gli esemplari di prima edizione come questo sono stampati su carta vergata coeva e sono colorati a mano in epoca. Le tirature del XIX secolo sono già su carta meccanica, priva di vergelle, e generalmente in bianco e nero. FIRST EDITION, CONTEMPORARY OUTLINE COLOUR - The Italian painter and engraver, Giovanni Maria Cassini, produced this interesting map of costlines of Alaska, the Bering Strait and Siberia, in order to illustrate the discoveries made by Cook. Published in: Nuovo atlante geografico universale delineato sulle ultime osservazioni. Roma, Calcografia camerale, 1792-1801. Cassini was geographer and cartographer but he was also good at engraving architectural items and perspectives – he was one of the best disciples Giovanni Battista Piranesi had. Moreover, Cassini was one of the last artists to engrave spheres in the XVIII century and his globes were quite famous and widespread, and realized the most important Italian Atlas of the XVIII century; his maps always bear a cartouche, extremely rich in colours and details. Copperplate with fine original hand colour, some foxing, otherwise in very good condition. Dimensioni 504 370mm

        Le Isole degli Amici delineate sulle ultime osservazioni del Cap. Cook

      Roma 1798 - - EDIZIONE ORIGINALE, COLORITURA COEVA - Decorativa mappa dell'arcipelago Tonga tratta dal "Nuovo Atlante Geografico Universale delineato sulle ultime osservazioni", edito a Roma dal 1792 fino al 1801, opera che la Calcografia Camerale commissionò al Cassini al fine di sostituire l’ormai obsoleto "Mercurio Geografico". I primi ad approdare alle isole Tonga furono J. Lemaire e W. C. Schouten, ai quali questo gruppo di isole non si presentò ospitale, per il carattere degli abitanti (1616). Migliore accoglienza incontrarono nel 1643 Abel Tasman, che toccò il solo gruppo meridionale, e Samuel Wallis nel 1767. Il Cook, che vi approdò nel 1773, vi si trovò tanto bene, che le chiamò "Le isole degli Amici" (Friendly Islands); quando vi tornò nel 1777 vi indugiò quasi due mesi, mantenendo sempre ottimi rapporti con quegli abitanti. Le isole settentrionali furono scoperte nel 1781 dallo spagnolo F. A. Mourelle. Giovanni Maria Cassini, Chierico Regolare Somasco fu geografo e cartografo, ma anche intagliatore di architetture e prospettive - uno dei migliori discepoli di Giovanni Battista Piranesi - Cassini fu uno degli ultimi sferografi italiani del Settecento ed i suoi globi ebbero una notevole diffusione, come pure questo "Nuovo Atlante Geografico".

FIRST EDITION, CONTEMPORARY OUTLINE COLOUR - The Italian painter and engraver, Giovanni Maria Cassini, produced this attractive map of the Tonga Islands, with Cook's tracks decoratively traced between them. Tonga became known as the Friendly Islands because of the hospitable reception given to Captain James Cook on his first visit in 1773.

        Le Isole della Società e di Noel delineata sulle ultime osservazioni del Capitan Cook

      Roma 1798 - - EDIZIONE ORIGINALE, COLORITURA COEVA - Decorativa mappa dell'arcipelago Tonga tratta dal "Nuovo Atlante Geografico Universale delineato sulle ultime osservazioni", edito a Roma dal 1792 fino al 1801, opera che la Calcografia Camerale commissionò al Cassini al fine di sostituire l’ormai obsoleto "Mercurio Geografico". L'arcipelago è costituito da due distinti gruppi di isolette vulcaniche: quello delle Isole Sopravento (o del Vento), a Sud, che include Tahiti, Moorea, Maiao, Mehetia, Tetiaroa; quello delle Sottovento, a Nord, che comprende Raiatea, Huahine, Bora-Bora, Maupiti, Tahaa, e gli atolli Scilly e Bellingshausen. Già scoperte nel 1607 da P. Fernandes Queirós, furono riscoperte da S. Wallis nel 1767 e chiamate Isole della Società da J. Cook nel 1769, in onore della Royal Society. L'Isola di Natale deve il suo nome al capitano inglese William Mynors, che avvistò l'isola nel Natale del 1643 a bordo della nave Royal Mary. Giovanni Maria Cassini, Chierico Regolare Somasco fu geografo e cartografo, ma anche intagliatore di architetture e prospettive - uno dei migliori discepoli di Giovanni Battista Piranesi - Cassini fu uno degli ultimi sferografi italiani del Settecento ed i suoi globi ebbero una notevole diffusione, come pure questo "Nuovo Atlante Geografico". Incisione in rame, coloritura coeva dei contorni, leggere bruniture, per il resto in ottimo stato di conservazione. FIRST EDITION, CONTEMPORARY OUTLINE COLOUR - The Italian painter and engraver, Giovanni Maria Cassini, produced this attractive map of the Tonga Islands and Christmas Island. The Society Islands are a group of islands located in the Pacific Ocean and part of French Polynesia. It includes Bora Bora, Tahiti, Moorea, Taha'a and Huahine. The archipelago is suspected to have been named by Captain James Cook supposedly in honour of the Royal Society, the sponsor of the first British scientific survey of the islands; however, Cook himself stated in his journal that he called the islands Society "as they lay contiguous to one another." Christmas Island was first discovered on in 1615 by Captain John Milward of the East India Company ship, and it was named Christmas Island on 25 December 1643. Cassini was geographer and cartographer but he was also good at engraving architectural items and perspectives – he was one of the best disciples Giovanni Battista Piranesi had. Moreover, Cassini was one of the last artists to engrave spheres in the XVIII century and his globes were quite famous and widespread, and realized the most important Italian Atlas of the XVIII century; his maps always bear a cartouche, extremely rich in colours and details.

        Le Isole di Sandwich delineate sulle osservazioni del Cap. Cook

      Roma 1798 - - EDIZIONE ORIGINALE, COLORITURA COEVA - Importante e decorativa mappa delle Isole Hawaii, tratta dal "Nuovo Atlante Geografico Universale delineato sulle ultime osservazioni", edito a Roma dal 1792 fino al 1801, opera che la Calcografia Camerale commissionò al Cassini al fine di sostituire l’ormai obsoleto "Mercurio Geografico". Questa è l'unica carta dell'arcipelago impreziosita da un decorativo cartiglio d'immaginazione che illustra la morte del capitano Cook, sull'isola di Hawaii, durante il viaggio del 1779. La prematura morte di Cook, nelle illustrazioni del tardo '700, riscosse un incredibile successo. Cassini, che non era mai stato alle Hawaii, ha usato "Carta delle Isole Sandwich" di Cook come modello per la sua mappa, commettendo alcuni errori interessanti. La sua rappresentazione dei nativi hawaiani con i loro copricapi di piume in realtà ricorda più degli Indiani d'America. L'errore più grande è quello di di mostrare Cook, un ufficiale della marina inglese, in divisa da ufficiale navale italiano. Giovanni Maria Cassini, Chierico Regolare Somasco fu geografo e cartografo, ma anche intagliatore di architetture e prospettive - uno dei migliori discepoli di Giovanni Battista Piranesi - Cassini fu uno degli ultimi sferografi italiani del Settecento ed i suoi globi ebbero una notevole diffusione, come pure questo "Nuovo Atlante Geografico".

This is the only map we have seen embellished with a decorative cartouche, imaginatively illustrating the death of Captain Cook on the island of Hawaii in 1779. Captain Cook's daring voyages and untimely death made this one of the most famous scenes of the late 18th century. Cassini, who had never been to Hawaii, used Cook's "Chart of the Sandwich Islands" as a model for his map, and he made some interesting errors. His representation of the Hawaiian natives with their feather headdresses is actually more reminiscent of the American Indians. His final mistake is to show Cook, an English naval officer, in an Italian naval officer's uniform. An uncommon map, published in the 'Nuovo Atlante Geografico Universale', with a decorative title cartouche, by Giovanni Maria Cassini, a Somasco monk. He was geographer and cartographer but he was also good at engraving architectural items and perspectives – he was one of the best disciples Giovanni Battista Piranesi had. Moreover, Cassini was one of the last artists to engrave spheres in the XVIII century and his globes were quite famous and widespread, and realized the most important Italian Atlas of the XVIII century; his maps always bear a cartouche, extremely rich in colours and details. Copperplate with fine original hand colour, isome foxing, otherwise in very good condition. The Cassini's Atlas was reprinted by the Calcografia Camerale in the first qurrter of XIXth century (before 1839). Only the first edition of the atlas is printed on contemporary laid paper, while the late issue are on XIXth century paper and often without colour. A very important map of Hawaii.

        The Letters of Junius

      London: Vernor and Hood, 1798. A new edition. xxxii, 266, [4]; iv, 288 pp. plus plates. 2 vols. 8vo. Contemporary marbled boards with plain paper spines. Bindings rubbed and worn. Minor foxing. Very good. In tan octavo-sized half morocco slipcases, spine gilt. A new edition. xxxii, 266, [4]; iv, 288 pp. plus plates. 2 vols. 8vo. Originally published in the London PUBLIC ADVERTISER from Jan. 21, 1769 to Jan. 21, 1772, under the pseudonym of "Junius" (possibly Sir Philip Francis). "...'Junius' poured brilliantly slanderous invective upon Tory-minded English ministers, especially the Duke of Grafton, for a series of 'inconsistent measures' which allegedly ruined England and drove the colonies 'into excesses little short of rebellion.' Vehement, lucid, frequently reprinted in English and colonial newspapers, the letters were polemical masterpieces with such extraordinary knowledge and appreciation of contemporary colonial opinion that they lent moral support to the early revolutionary cause. 'Junius' opposed the Tea Duty, but upheld the legality of the Stamp Act, and prophesied (Dec. 19, 1769) that the colonies aimed at independence" - DICTIONARY OF AMERICAN HISTORY. ESTC T1852; DICTIONARY OF AMERICAN HISTORY III, p.190
