      - Not in Knuttel; Landwehr, VOC. Ad 1: Broadside concerning the prolongation of the VOC's charter on trade in the East Indies. The texct declares the prolongation of the company's charter with another year, until 31 December 1799. With the unification of the various Dutch companies trading with the East in 1602, the Dutch government granted the new VOC monopoly over the Asian trade, as well as the powers to build forts, maintain armies and conclude treaties.In 1796 the VOC was nationalized and granted a charter, valid until 1798, to finish off current affairs. The charter ended up to be prolonged for two more times, first until December 1799, as stated in this broadside and finally until December 1800.Ad 2: Broadside proclaiming the installation of a new, intermediary board of directors dealing with the Dutch colonies and possessions along the coast of Guinea and in America (the West Indies). It further informs that the former board is annulled, and that the new board, consisting of seven members, will reside at Amsterdam and will hold its first meeting on 1 April 1798.Both broadsides are headed with the emblem of the Batavian Republic, including a personification of the Dutch Maiden and a lion holding the Batavian flag, and the Dutch translation of liberty, equality and fraternity.

        Miniatura con la Resurrezione e Bordura con sei scompartimenti istoriati. Pagina iniziale (Dominica de Passione et Dominica Palmarum) di Antifonario Diurno secondo il rito Romano dal Tempo Pasquale alla 23esima settimana dopo la Pentecoste. 

      Foglio di pergamena miniato in Italia, fine xv -inizio xvi secolo. Straordinario foglio miniato (mm 660x460) su pergamena con iniziale di grandissimo formato "R" al cui interno si sviluppa un'elaborata scena della Resurrezione (mm 290x280). Sulla destra del capolettera un riquadro in blu con scritta in capitali dorate su tre linee "esu/rre/xi", giustificato a destra fino al limite della bordura laterale sinistra. Il grandioso foglio è incorniciato da un'elaborata bordura sui quattro lati con candelabre, putti ed elementi vegetali, nonché da sei scomparti con uno o più personaggi: in basso al centro inferiore della bordura entro tondo Santa Felicita che regge la palma del martirio e un libro dalla legatura rossa, agli angoli quattro scomparti quadrilobati che comprendono i sette figli martiri. Al centro superiore della bordura uno scomparto bilobato con Dio che invita il figlio a raggiungerlo nel Regno dei cieli. In alto, su tre linee, testo in rosso dell'inizio della celebrazione della Domenica della Palme Dominica de Passione et Dominica Palmarum, al di sotto della miniatura, la notazione musicale quadrata su tetragramma rosso su due righi "et adhuc tecum sum...", proseguimento dell'apertura "Resurrexi". Queste parole, tratte da un'antica versione del Salmo 138, risuonano all'inizio dell'odierna Santa Messa. in cui Cristo si rivolge al Padre: "Sono risorto e sono ancora e sempre con te". La scena della Resurrezione è arricchita dalla presenza dei tre soldati romani, sconvolti dall'evento; il tondo di Felicita è retto da 4 putti, mentre all'interno dei lati interno ed esterno della bordura figurano altri 9 putti. L'iconografia della bordura è incentrata sulla figura di Santa Felicita, ricca vedova romana, che fu accusata di pratiche cristiane durante l'impero di Antonino Pio nel secondo secolo d.C. Durante l'interrogatorio furono condotti davanti a lei i sette figli (Gennaro, Felice, Filippo, Silano, Alessandro, Vitale e Marziale) che, a causa della loro fermezza nel rifiuto di rinnegare la fede, furono martirizzati uno alla volta prima della madre con diversi supplizi. L'eccezionalità di questo grandioso foglio si deve alla freschezza della conservazione del foglio iniziale di un graduale di inusuale ricchezza della bordura e dal grandissimo formato della iniziale, affiancata dal riquadro in fondo blu che inscrive in oro la parola su fondo blu; il tutto occupa in larghezza l'intero spazio orizzontale all'interno dei due lati verticali. Scritte di grandi dimensioni in oro sono molto rare nei manoscritti; alcuni esempi seppur di gran lunga più ricchi, su fondi rossi, verdi o blu ma pointillé in oro, si trovano nella celebre Bibbia di Borso d'Este. Al verso reca notazione musicale e iniziali di grandi dimensioni a pennello in inchiostro blu e rosso con motivi a filigrana in colore contrastante che segnano gli incipit delle varie parti cantate della Messa, rubricate in rosso. Il foglio è conservato da una grandiosa cornice lignea cesellata del tardo Seicento, a stucco inciso con ramage e punzonature (di circa 15 cm di fascia), probabilmente in origine dorata, come fanno presupporre le tracce di bolo. La presenza di Felicita fa pensare che il foglio facesse parte di un Antifonario prodotto tra Firenze,  Roma e il Lazio ove il culto di questa Santa è diffuso. A questa area si avvicinano anche le miniature e gli elementi ornamentali che sono certamente centro-italiani, ambito culturale al quale Antonio da Monza si avvicinò durante il periodo al servizio di Papa Borgia. L'uso delle candelabre per i Marginalia, il gusto antiquariale e l'impaginazione fanno pensare al sistema decorativo delle Logge Vaticane, modello che si diffuse nei manoscritti prodotti scriptoria centro-italiani. Il modo di realizzare i volti, la paletta cromatica e l'impostazione degli elementi decorativi fanno avvicinare la realizzazione di questo foglio miniato ad Antonio da Monza, uno dei più insigni miniatori lombardi sullo scorcio del sec. XV, sebbene ancor oggi la sua personalità non risulti chiarita. Firmò una sola opera, oggi presso la raccolta Albertina di Vienna. Attorno ad essa la critica ha tentato di raggruppare altre opere, sia miniature sia incisioni, prudentemente comprese sotto il nome di "pseudo Antonio da Monza", personalità fittizia, che è stata un tempo ipoteticamente identificata con Zuan Andrea da Mantova, seguace del Mantegna, ma più recentemente, per ragioni e stilistiche e documentarie, con Giovan Pietro Birago. Fra i suddetti testi, l'unico tuttora riferibile ad A. da Monza è un foglio con una Visitazione nel Kupferstichkabinet di Berlino (n. 1799), i cui accenti culturali di estrazione romana, e meglio pinturicchiesca, evidenti accanto ad elementi di gusto lombardo, si possono ben porre in rapporto con l'attività del miniatore per papa Borgia.. .

        Phantasien über die Kunst für Freunde der Kunst. Hrsg. von Ludwig Tieck. Titel, IV S., 1 Bl., S. 5-283. Guter Halblederbd d. Z. mit Rückenschild und dezenter Rückenvergoldung.

      Hamburg, Friedrich Perthes, 1799. - Erste Ausgabe, sehr schön in der Unger-Fraktur gedruckt. Eins der wichtigsten Dokumente zur Kunsttheorie der Romantik, gedacht als Weiterführung der 1797 erschienenen 'Herzensergießungen .'. Wackenroder war im Februar 1798 im Alter von nur 25 Jahren gestorben; Tieck sammelte die verstreuten Essays und Arbeiten des Freundes und fügte einiges hinzu. Das zunehmende Verständnis für mittelalterliche Kunst ist in hohem Maße dieser Schrift zu verdanken. Das Buch enthält u. a. einen Aufsatz über Dürer, Essays über Raffael Michelangelo, aber auch über Watteau. Neben den Schriften Runges sowie Tiecks Malerroman 'Franz Sternbalds Wanderungen' (1798) gelten die 'Phantasien über die Kunst' als zentrales Dokument der deutschen Romantik. Maaßen hält das Werk für "eins der am schönsten gedruckten Bücher der Romantik". &#150; Frisches breitrandiges Exemplar auf besserem Papier. &#150; Goed. VI 36, 37 u. 47 und 47, 6; Borst 851.

      Printed for the Author 1799 - FIRST EDITION, with subscribers' list, title a little soiled, light spotting through initial leaves, endpapers creased, final leaf with neat repair to verso, front free endpaper with inked initials, pp. xx, 106, [ii, ad], 67 (engraved music), folio, contemporary half roan with marbled boards, corners and edges rubbed, abrasions to boards, backstrip cracked with loss at foot, boards detached, 'A.F.C. Kollman' inscribed on title below booksellers' details, [with] Kollman (Augustus Frederick Christopher) A New Theory of Musical Harmony, According to a Complete and Natural System of that Science. For the Author, 1806, FIRST EDITION, title slightly soiled, initial and final gatherings detached, pp. [iv], viii, 84, xxxvi (engraved music), (ii), folio, contemporary half calf with marbled boards, upper board with oval label inscribed with title and owner's signature, pen mark and abrasion on lower board, backstrip cracked, boards detached, worn, 'G. Griesbach' inscribed at foot of title, First title includes the first printing in full of Bach's Prelude and Fugue in C major from Part II of The Well-Tempered Clavier. Kollmann, who arrived in London in 1782 to take up the post of organist and schoolmaster at the German Chapel, St. James' Palace, has long been cited as the Bach's first pioneering advocate in England. He uses, as an example, the F minor Prelude from Part II of the The Well-Tempered Clavier in his first theoretical treatise of 1796, but here, he goes much further, quoting from the Organ Trio (BMV 525), the Chromatic Fantasy and Fugue, The Musical Offering and The Art of Fugue, describing this form with particular care since he was acutely aware of the adverse opinions relating to Bach's treatment of this form of the influential music historian of the time (and subscriber), Charles Burney. Kollmann also offers the tantalizing possibility of publishing the '48' in full: 'This most ingenious, most learned, and yet practicable work, is so highly esteemed by all who can judge of it, that as it is grown scarce, I intend to offer it to the public analyzed' (p.97-98). Though this did not come to pass, the prospect of the edition may well have accelerated the production of the first complete printed edition which was issued in 1801. The signature on the title-page of A New Theory is presumably that of George Griesbach, oldest of the five Griesbach brothers who came from Hanover to London between 1778 and 1788 to play in Queen Charlotte's private band. According to H.G. Bohn's note in Lowndes' The Bibliographer's Manual of English Literature, 1834, George's nephew, John Henry Griesbach, the notable pianist and composer, was one of the 12 boys whose German and musical education was supervised by Kollmann at St James' Palace. A scarce title: only 2 in the US according to WordCat.

        A Voyage round the World, performed in the years 1785, 1786, 1787, and 1788, by the Boussole and Astrolabe, under the command of J.F.G. de la Pérouse: published by order of the National Assembly, under the superintendence of L.A. Milet-Mureau . Translated from the French

      printed by A. Hamilton for G.G. & J. Robinson, J. Edwards and T. Payne, London 1799 - (text: 2 vols., quarto [11 1/2 x 9 1/4 inches]; atlas of plates: 1 vol., folio (18 1/8 x 11 1/2 inches]). Text: 1p. errata at the back of volume II, lacks half-titles; Atlas: engraved allegorical title-page by Heath after J. M. Moreau, engraved portrait frontispiece of La Perouse by Heath, 69 engraved plates and maps (38 plates, 31 maps [including 1 large folding map hand-coloured in outline and 20 double-page]). Without the letterpress list of plates found in some copies. Atlas uncut. Text expertly bound to style in full period russia, the atlas in half russia and period marbled paper covered boards, flat spines tooled and lettered in gilt. The rare first complete edition in English of one "of the finest narratives of maritime exploration ever written" (Howell): an large uncut copy of the atlas complete with the large folding map often wanting. This first edition in English which was the first translation to include the complete text, "is usually considered to be the best one in English, and is now an extremely rare work" (Hill). "La Pérouse's expedition was one of the most important scientific explorations ever undertaken to the Pacific and the west coast of North America . The charge to the expedition [which took place between 1785 and 1788] was to examine such parts of the region as had not been explored by Captain Cook; to seek for an interoceanic passage; to make scientific observations on the various countries, peoples, and products; to obtain reliable information about the fur trade and the extent of Spanish settlements in California; and to promote the inducements for French enterprise in that quarter . La Pérouse and his men did important geographical research . The voyage also included the first foreign scientific group ever to visit Alta California [two of the plates depict a bee-eater and a male and female partridge of California. There are also maps and plans of San Francisco, Monterery, and San Diego] . La Pérouse sent dispatches back to France from Kamchatka and Botany Bay. The two ships then set sail from Botany Bay, in 1788, and were never heard from again" (Hill). It was not until the 1820s that the wrecks of his ships were discovered on a reef in the Santa Cruz group. Amongst the most significant results of the voyage are the series of charts that were produced as a result of the expedition's surveys of Asiatic side of the Pacific; and the ethnographic details of "the peculiarities [La Pérouse] . observed in the natives of the northwest coast of North America" (Sabin). In addition, he was the first westerner to safely navigate and chart the Japan Sea and the strait between the island of Sakhalin and the northernmost island of Japan. En route for Australia in 1788, La Pérouse sailed via Samoa where he discovered the islands of Apolima, Manono and Savaii. This English edition is difficult to find with both the quarto text and the small folio atlas, and particularly difficult to find with the atlas complete with the large folding map following the title which is nearly always lacking and perhaps not issued with all sets.

        Journey from India towards England, in the year 1797; by a route commonly called over-land, through countries not much frequented, and many of them hitherto unknown to Europeans, particularly between the Rivers Euphrates and Tigris, through Curdistan, Diarbek, Armenia, and Natolia, in Asia; and through Romalia, Bulgaria, Wallachia, Transylvania, &c. in Europe.

      London T. Cadell 1799 - First edition, 8vo., xvi, 277pp., 2 pages of advertisments at end, 5 engraved plates and a folding map, contemporary half calf, marbled boards, rebacked preserving spine, occasional light browning, an excellent copy. "Jackson went to India on private business, visiting Ceylon and the Malabar coast while there. He travelled out by ship but took the overland route home. On 4 May 1797 he left Bombay by country ship for Basrah. He proceeded via the Euphrates and Tigris to Baghdad, and thence travelled through Kurdistan, Armorica, Anatolia, Bulgaria, Wallachia, and Transylvania, reaching Hamburg on 28 October of the same year. Under the title Journey from India towards England (1799) he published an account of his travels in which he showed that the use of the route he followed was practicable all the year round. Jackson's narrative of his journey is straightforward in style, with daily entries describing his party's progress, and observations on the people and places they encountered. Although he advocated greater use of the overland route, he conceded that it was only for the physically hardy, and his description made it clear that the route was potentially dangerous. He advised on how to seek help from the local people and how to travel inconspicuously. Jackson showed himself both curious and flexible in adopting local habits of dress, of wearing beard and moustache, and of eating, drinking, and smoking. The reviewer in the Gentleman's Magazine described the Journey warmly as 'a very useful and instructive guide' (1st ser, 70, 1800, 237&#150;9)." (ODNB). [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

Ink ownership inscription on leading f.e.p. verso of vol. III reading &apos;Williams, Highcliff.&apos;ESTC T143950, BL, Cambridge, Oxford only in UK; Newberry, UCLA, Yale only in N. America. FIRST ENGLISH EDITION. Genlis, 1746-1830, was a French author and educator who was the boyhood tutor of King Louis Philippe I. She was well-known for her innovative education techniques including practical botany walks, using lantern slides during lessons, and putting on morality plays. During her lifetime she wrote nearly 80 works, many for children and mostly of a moral nature. According to one contemporary reviewer, Rash Vows is &apos;rather a whimsical performance, and has less ingenuity of contrivance , than usually distinguishes the work of this author&apos; (The British Critic and Quarterly Theological Review, vol. 14, 1799). In the &apos;Dedicatory Epistle&apos; of the novel, Genlis writes that this novel is &apos;the most moral Romance in our language; perhaps the only one that young people, and even those whose education is far advanced, may be permitted to read&apos;. Interestingly, Rash Vows is addressed to Lady Edward Fitzgerald and Mrs Henrietta Matthieson. Lady Edward - known as Pamela - was described as Genlis&apos;s adopted daughter, but was possibly an unacknowledged biological daughter of the author and Louis Philippe II, Duke of Orléans. The year before this novel was published, Lady Edward&apos;s husband was arrested for planning an uprising and subsequently died of the wounds he sustained while resisting arrest. Since her husband was considered a traitor and his estates were confiscated by the crown, Pamela fled Ireland for Hamburg - the same place Genlis had fled following her estranged husband&apos;s execution during the French Revolution.

      Paris, Ponthieu, An VII (1799). - 3 tomes en 1 volume in-8. (2ff.blancs). VIII. 415pp. + 2ff. 455pp. + 2ff. 400pp. Demi-veau, dos lisse orné (Reliure de l'époque, charnière supérieure restaurée). Edition Originale publiée par Sérieys sur le manuscrit de l'auteur, de ces lettres que Stendhal admirait et qui n'étaient destinées à l'origine qu'à un petit cercle d'amis choisis. Charles de Brosses (1709-1777), président du Parlement de Dijon, esprit brillant et cultivé, amateur de bonne chère et bon vivant, voyagea en Italie en 1739 et 1740. Ces lettres qui furent écrites de mémoire plusieurs années après son retour en France, constituent un tour de force littéraire et l'un des témoignages les plus intéressants laissés sur l'Italie par un écrivain français. "Cet exercice de style d&#146;une composition à froid et de seconde main n&#146;exclut pas cependant la chaleur d&#146;une émotion restée entière, et le plaisir qu&#146;elle communique est le même. Le principe est simple: une étape, des lieux, une lettre. Mais un même lieu peut être raconté à différents destinataires. Il en résulte des effets polyphoniques intéressants, car de Brosses s&#146;adresse à chacun de manière différente: avec le 'gros Blancey', amateur de plaisirs simples, de bons mots et de jolies femmes, le ton sera égrillard et le Président se révélera être un franc libertin. ( ) Les lettres à M.de Quentin, en revanche, sont d&#146;une écriture plus austère et plus cultivée: les palais, les lieux de culte sont soigneusement recensés, et la profusion d&#146;objets d&#146;art ainsi décrits tourne au catalogue. C&#146;est dire que ce journal, élaboré d&#146;après un riche fonds de notes et de mémoires, ne prend sa véritable dimension que par la forme épistolaire. ( ) L&#146;ensemble laisse une impression de 'choses vues', qui tient au mélange hétéroclite et au jeu des transitions lâches, de l&#146;Opéra aux églises et des églises. aux courtisanes, chapitre qu&#146;il 'traite à fond' d&#146;ailleurs. Et les promenades artistiques le cèdent souvent à la chronique mondaine. On le voit, l&#146;essentiel n&#146;est pas seulement la peinture, même si celle-ci occupe beaucoup de place et reste un morceau de choix. L&#146;adresse est précisément de donner à ces observations la vivacité du coup de crayon et l&#146;inachèvement de l&#146;ébauche, comme si, par un jeu spéculaire, la lettre devenait tableau du tableau, prenait son coloris, empruntait son trait. Les Lettres familières ressemblent donc fort à une relecture, avec ratures et corrections, d&#146;un monumental livre d&#146;art qui appelle de constantes rééditions: il n&#146;y a pas une Italie, celle autant mythique que réelle, des arts et des artistes, mais une variété de lieux et d&#146;&#156;uvres assujettis au goût qui change et au temps qui passe" (Dictionnaire des &#140;uvres Littéraires Françaises).

        VITAE EXCELLENTIUM IMPERATORUM

      Parma: In aedibus Palatinis, typis Bodonianis, 1799. This stately folio printing of the earliest known collection of Classical biographies bears all the hallmarks of a Bodoni imprint: beautiful, creamy paper, elegant typography, and sharp, deeply impressed printing. Giambatista Bodoni (1740-1813) worked for more than 20 years at the Royal press in Parma before obtaining permission to set up his own private press in 1791. Brooks says, "He took his printing in all its branches very seriously, laboured incessantly to perfect his type, had a fine artistic sense, . . . and produced books not only of a very high standard, but also showing a remarkably distinct individuality." Bodoni used the finest quality paper available, and his clear, beautiful types have been envied and copied for many generations. "The result of his labours is a long list of books which . . . reach a very high, many of them the highest, level of technical excellence." Little is known about the life of the Roman historian Cornelius Nepos (c. 99-24 B.C.) beyond the fact that he was the friend of Cicero, Atticus, and Catullus. A number of lost works by him are mentioned by other ancient writers, some of whom quote brief passages. Of uncertain authorship but generally attributed to Nepos, the present work, in 16 books, comprises lives of famous men, including both distinguished Romans and foreigners, biographies that served for many generations as material for Latin school books because of the purity of their language. Although unreliable chronologically, the "Vitae" contain significant information not elsewhere available. The binding here matches the printing in its restrained grace, and comes from one of the longest-lived English workshops. Born in Pest, Hungary, Joseph Zaehnsdorf (1816-86) served his apprenticeship in Stuttgart, worked at a number of European locations as a journeyman, and then settled in London, where he was hired first by Westley and then by Mackenzie before opening his own workshop in 1842. His son and namesake took over the business at age 33, when the senior Joseph died, and the firm flourished under the son's leadership, becoming a leading West End bindery.. 350 x 247 mm. (13 3/4 x 9 5/8"). 1 p.l., ix, [v], 286 pp. Pleasing 19th century stiff vellum, gilt, by Zaehnsdorf (stamp-signed on verso of front free endpaper), covers with French fillet border, flat spine with lattice-work design, blue morocco label, densely gilt turn-ins, marbled endpapers, top edge gilt, other edges untrimmed. A Large Paper Copy. Front pastedown with engraved bookplate of Raphael Mauritius Bauer; front free endpaper with bookplate of Stephen D. Winkworth. Brooks 747.

        Título de propiedad de las tierras y puentes de Santa pertenecientes al señor Dn. Pedro Abadia

      1799/1833, Lima 1799 - " XVIII century illustration of a flying bridge in Lima". 2 folding watercolor diagrams. 45, 87, [8] manuscript leaves. Folio, original vellum; dozens of separate documents bound together. .Legal documents concerning Pedro Abadia's flying bridge. This manuscript volume bears the title "Título de Propiedad de las Tierras y Puente de Santa perteneciente al Sr. Dn. Pedro Abadia 1799." Abadia was a prominent citizen of Lima. In 1843, an American consul named Richard Cleveland wrote: "No stranger of respectability ever visited Lima, without enjoying the hospitality of Don Pedro Abadia. He was eminently hospitable, urbane, and friendly" with "an influence with the Viceroy and the Cabildo, unsurpassed by any other individual in the kingdom." Much of this volume relates to an unusual bridge spanning the Rio Santa which was operated jointly by Abadia and Jose Coquette. This "puente volante," or flying bridge, was essentially a boat attached downstream from an anchor which could be moved from shore to shore by the use of a rudder. The two illustrations in this volume show the specifics of this device. vols. volumen(es)/volume(s) S.P. páginas
