        Shakespeare Illustrated by an Assemblage of Portraits and Views; with Biographical Anecdotes for the Different Persons, and Descriptions of Places Mentioned: Adapted to the Whole Series of the Author's Dramas. To which are added Portraits of Actors, Editors, &c. Arranged, with Directions for their Insertion in any Edition

      London: G. Sidney, 1800. Early expanded edition of this collection of engravings of Shakespearean subjects, intended to be individually rebound into "any edition" of the plays, allowing readers to construct their own personalized extra-illustrated copies of Shakespeare. The engravings include portraits of notable Shakespearean editors (Alexander Pope, Thomas Hanmer), critics (Samuel Johnson, Elizabeth Montagu), actors (Richard Burbage, Will Kempe), historical figures (Julius Caesar, Henry IV, Richard III, Elizabeth I), and settings (Stratford-upon-Avon, Westminster Abbey, the Rialto). Each plate is accompanied by a page or more of text, providing the play, act, and scene related to the subject. The engravings are based on historical portraits and landscapes already available to the printers, so there are no original illustrations of characters invented by Shakespeare. The plates in this work first appeared in parts between 1789 and 1793, the first publication of the brothers Sylvester and Edward Harding. Before joining Edward to establish their book and print shop, Sylvester worked as an actor in a traveling troupe, an experience that may have suggested the Shakespearean theme. Shakespeare Illustrated capitalized on the contemporary vogue for extra-illustration, the practice of inserting extra material, from illustrations to autographs to manuscripts, into printed books to provide additional color and context. In 1803, Edward Harding became librarian to Queen Charlotte, and in this role he extra-illustrated many works of history "for her amusement" (DNB). Unlike the edition of the Hardings, which consisted of 150 plates in thirty parts, this expanded edition includes commentary on each image, sometimes quite pointed, as in the case of Cleopatra: "A woman of greater genius perhaps never existed: she conversed in almost every language then known, and displayed the greatest powers in her government; and it may be some palliation to her vices to add, that licentious manners and seductive arts were the only means left her to preserve her kingdom." A near-fine copy of a complete Shakespearean sourcebook, evidence of English reading and collecting practices at the turn of the nineteenth century. Two octavo volumes, modern three-quarter brown calf over green marbled boards, black morocco spine labels lettered in gilt, spine ruled and ornamented in gilt, new endpapers, all edges marbled. Separate engraved title page dated 1793 (from original publisher S&E Harding) bound after main title in Volume I. Illustrated with 158 full-page engraved plates. Armorial bookplate of Charles Banckerl on front pastedowns, binder's ticket on rear pastedown of Volume I. Scattered foxing, occasionally affecting images, text blocks uniformly embrowned, mended tear to margin of plate 17 (Nicholas Rowe), not affecting image.

      1800 - Containing a Faithful Narrative of his Alternate Vicissitudes of Splendor and Misfortune. Written by Himself. The Whole interspersed with Interesting Anecdotes and Authentic Accounts of Important Public Transactions. The Second Edition. Stipple-engraved portrait frontispiece. Offsetting from the portrait, light browning throughout, but overall very good in the publisher's boards, slightly rubbed and soiled, upper joint a little split towards the tail, some chipping of the spine at head and tail. xxii, errata leaf, 382pp. W. Stewart, Sabin 41421, ?Includes his adventures in South America, description of the Province of Rio Grande &c.?; Ferguson 317, ?The autobiography of this celebrated adventurer, including a full account of the mutiny of the Lady Shore in which he was carried as a convict to New South Wales, and of the adventures of the landing party in their journey to Rio de Janeiro.? Semple was the born in Ayrshire, the son of an exciseman, in 1776 he served briefly in America before being taken prisoner. He was ?relieved early in 1777, by Lord Percy, whose retirement from the Army his country may justly regret, and Sir Peter Parker, then commander at Rhode Island. [He] was soon after wounded; and was in consequence sent home from New York, in the Bridget of Liverpool.? He then was involved with Mrs. Eliza Gooch, the novelist - ?My amour with Mrs. Gooch having been related by the lady herself, in her Memoirs, though not quite correctly, I Ieave as it is. ? He then claims to have accompanied Frederick the Great in the campaign of 1778, to have been introduced the Catherine the Great, & ? to have accompanied Prince Potyomkin to the Crimea, and to have designed a uniform for the Russian Army.? [ODNB] In 1784 he was arrested for obtaining goods under false pretences and sentenced, in 1786, to seven years transportation. Released on condition of quitting England he moved to Paris, where he witnessed the execution of Louis XVI, returning to England shortly afterwards to avoid arrest. In 1795, returning to his old ways, he was again sentenced to transportation ?this time for defrauding tradesmen? [ibid.] His hopes of pardon being dashed, when scheduled to be shipped to Botany Bay, he melodramatically stabbed himself in Newgate - ? in my frenzy, I snatched up a round pointed breakfast knife, with which I made a blow at my breast; I struck too high, and the knife would not enter; but I repeated the stroke lower down, and plunged it to the handle in my body.? - and subsequently went on hunger strike. Having recovered he was dispatched to Australia on the Lady Jane Shore. Despite Semple's warnings of unrest amongst the troops onboard, mutiny broke out but he was allowed to leave in a boat with several others who would not make a common cause with the mutineers. The party eventually landed in South America and after a series of almost credible adventures Semple made his way to Tangiers via Lisbon and Gibraltar and there surrendered himself to the British Minister. He was sent back to England and committed to Tothill Fields prison, where at the time of the publication of his autobiography he was still held. ?Nothing further is known of him.? [Iibid.] A very nice copy of this hard-to-obtain life of a notorious scoundrel. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Die Einfassungslinie mit schwarzer Feder. encadrement baguette or / Echtgoldrahmen. Belle vue animée par le contraste entre la vallée verte avec le glacier. Signé ?fait par Jn. Ante. Linck? Il s?agit du genevois Jean-Antoine Linck (1766-1843), peintre et graveur sur cuivre, fils d?un émailleur et graveur de fonds de montres originaire d?Erlangen. Jean-Antoine et son frère Jean-Philippe font leur apprentissage dans l?atelier de leur père, où il sont en contact surtout avec le peintre et graveur Carl Hackert, installé à Genève dès 1778, qui contribue à leur formation. Les frères Linck se tournent vers la gravure et la peinture de paysage et sont actifs dans la région genevoise et les Alpes voisines. Jean-Antoine Linck participait régulièrement aux expositions organisées par la Société des arts à partir de 1789, jusqu?en 1826. Il a aussi voyagé en Europe: à Lyon, en Allemagne (1799) et à Milan (1812). ?Si sa carrière reste relativement discrète dans l?historiographie genevoise, c?est sans doute en raison du genre de peinture ?moins relevé? auquel il s?est adonné, privilégiant la gouache et la gravure aquarellée et faisant de rares incursions dans la peinture à la cire. Sa renommée est attestée par une clientèle prestigieuse, comptant l?Impératrice Joséphine et, dit-on, Lucien Bonaparte, le cardinal Fesch ou encore Catherine de Russie; les voyageurs se sont empressés dans son atelier, installé à Montbrillant dès 1812 et c?est aujourd?hui un paysagiste prisé sur le marché des vues genevoises ou alpestres.

        (THE MACKLIN BIBLE)

      London: T. Bensley for T. Macklin [final volume Bensley for T. Cadell & W. Davies], 1800 [for the six volumes of the Bible], 1816 [for the Apocrypha]. First Printing of this Edition. The most prodigious form of scripture in English ever published, the Macklin Bible was often put into ornate bindings, especially by London binders like Staggemeier and his contemporaries. But, however much other sets may glisten, the present magnificent example surely stands at or near the front of the line as one of the most lavishly decorated and arresting copies in existence. Its decorative extravagance also testifies to the fact that Macklin's publication was sufficiently admired outside of England to warrant the finest workmanship and the expenditure of great sums of money on artistic resources. The very large and bold type, the fine Whatman paper, and the series of engravings by some of the most celebrated artists of the period make this an item that is already very desirable. Like the Boydell "Shakespeare Gallery" (also printed by Bensley), our Macklin Bible is a vast picture book with illustrations that are grand both in size and emotional impact. But it is, of course, the bindings here that matter the most. Francesco Piranesi is generally given credit for inventing the Neoclassical style when he designed volumes presented to Gustavus III of Sweden during this monarch's visit to Rome in 1783-84. Quickly popular, the Neoclassical style was imitated and developed by Staggemeier and Welcher in London, by F. W. Standlander in Stockholm, and by Georg Friedrich Krauss in Vienna. Krauss was the most prominent Continental binder working in this style of the day, and Saxe-Teschen was perhaps his most important client. Products of the Krauss bindery have passed through some of the most distinguished collections over the years, particularly those of Fürstenberg and Schäfer; and his bindings have consistently brought remarkable sums of money at auction. It is sufficient to say that the present group of bindings represents the most impressive collection of decorative volumes we have ever offered for sale. The collector for whom these bindings were originally executed, Duke Albrecht of Saxe-Teschen (1738-1822), was the son of Friedrich August II of Saxony and the son-in-law of the empress Maria Theresa. After providing important military and civil service to the Habsburg empire, he retired to Vienna in 1795 and afterward devoted himself to the fine arts. He founded the Albertina, which now houses the greatest collection of prints in the world, and he put together a great library distinguished by the highest taste and most exacting standards. The present copy has the additional distinction of containing what amounts to an extra volume: the Macklin Bible, however it is bound, most often appears in the marketplace without the Apocrypha, appearing here as Volume VII, which was not issued until 16 years after the others. It is also of some interest that the bindings of our seven volumes were decorated in an entirely uniform fashion (as a close inspection shows), something not typical of a set with volumes published so many years apart. (The non-uniform endleaves in the final volume here may have resulted from the fact that, given the physical size of the books, the binder simply ran out of the cloth he had used for lining the first six volumes.). 480 x 385 mm. (19 x 15 1/8"). One leaf in the Apocrypha (3P2, comprising two prologues of Ecclesiasticus) invisibly inserted from another copy. Seven volumes (comprising the regular Bible in six volumes, and the Apocrypha, usually not included, as a seventh volume). First Printing of this Edition. MAGNIFICENT CONTEMPORARY RED NEOCLASSICAL-STYLE STRAIGHT-GRAIN MOROCCO, SUMPTUOUSLY GILT AND ONLAID WITH BLUE, BY GEORG FRIEDRICH KRAUSS, done for Duke Albrecht of Saxe-Teschen (with repeated "AST" monogram), covers with very elaborate frames incorporating 11 plain and decorative gilt rules, four onlaid borders of blue morocco, and very elegant swirling foliate ornamentation around the central scalloped panel, six pairs of raised bands, each pair flanking a recessed gilt and blue metope and pentaglyph rule, very handsome spine compartments with blue fan-shaped cornerpieces and central gilt-decorated blue medallions within sunburst gilt collars, turn-ins with Greek key pattern in gilt, striking endleaves of turquoise and green watered silk (the Apochrypha endleaves slightly different).

Tissue guards (perhaps later). Herbert 1442 and 1651. First volume with about 30 leaves noticeably foxed, the majority of plates offset onto previous and following pages, consistent inoffensive offsetting of text on facing pages, other trivial imperfections, but still a very impressive copy internally, with the luxurious paper used for the text both fresh and clean, and the engravings richly impressed and with very little foxing.

AN ALTOGETHER MEMORABLE COPY.The most prodigious form of scripture in English ever published, the Macklin Bible was often put into ornate bindings, especially by London binders like Staggemeier and his contemporaries. But, however much other sets may glisten, the present magnificent example surely stands at or near the front of the line as one of the most lavishly decorated and arresting copies in existence. Its decorative extravagance also testifies to the fact that Macklin's publication was sufficiently admired outside of England to warrant the finest workmanship and the expenditure of great sums of money on artistic resources. The very large and bold type, the fine Whatman paper, and the series of engravings by some of the most celebrated artists of the period make this an item that is already very desirable. Like the Boydell "Shakespeare Gallery" (also printed by Bensley), our Macklin Bible is a vast picture book with illustrations that are grand both in size and emotional impact. But it is, of course, the bindings here that matter the most. Francesco Piranesi is generally given credit for inventing the Neoclassical style when he designed volumes presented to Gustavus III of Sweden during this monarch's visit to Rome in 1783-84. Quickly popular, the Neoclassical style was imitated and developed by Staggemeier and Welcher in London, by F. W. Standlander in Stockholm, and by Georg Friedrich Krauss in Vienna. Krauss was the most prominent Continental binder working in this style of the day, and Saxe-Teschen was perhaps his most important client. Products of the Krauss bindery have passed through some of the most distinguished collections over the years, particularly those of Fürstenberg and Schäfer; and his bindings have consistently brought remarkable sums of money at auction. It is sufficient to say that the present group of bindings represents the most impressive collection of decorative volumes we have ever offered for sale. The collector for whom these bindings were originally executed, Duke Albrecht of Saxe-Teschen (1738-1822), was the son of Friedrich August II of Saxony and the son-in-law of the empress Maria Theresa. After providing important military and civil service to the Habsburg empire, he retired to Vienna in 1795 and afterward devoted himself to the fine arts. He founded the Albertina, which now houses the greatest collection of prints in the world, and he put together a great library distinguished by the highest taste and most exacting standards. The present copy has the additional distinction of containing what amounts to an extra volume: the Macklin Bible, however it is bound, most often appears in the marketplace without the Apocrypha, appearing here as Volume VII, which was not issued until 16 years after the others. It is also of some interest that the bindings of our seven volumes were decorated in an entirely uniform fashion (as a close inspection shows), something not typical of a set with volumes published so many years apart. (The non-uniform endleaves in the final volume here may have resulted from the fact that, given the physical size of the books, the binder simply ran out of the cloth he had used for lining the first six volumes.).

British acts relating to the militia, with blank borders trimmed off, neatly affixed to 8” x 12” blank pages and bound with marbled endpapers in half leather morocco binding, four spine compartments between five raised bands, titled in gilt: <I>“Militia/Acts/I EDW III/To/3940 GEO III/1327-1800.”</I> Foxed bookplate, 5” x 6.5”, of <I>“Herbrand, eleventh duke of Bedford,”</I> affixed to front endpaper. Some of the acts that are more than one page have been tipped in, rather than affixed to the pages. There are 236 printed pages of acts, front and verso, in all. The three short Edward III acts are in French and English. The book is in excellent condition.<br /><br />Tipped in is a rare, complete original 1715 printing, with title page, of one of the first acts of the reign of George I. George, Elector of Hanover since 1698, he ascended the throne upon the death of Queen Anne on August 1, 1714, under the terms of the 1701 Act of Settlement. The act is titled <I>“Anno Regni/Georgee/Regis/Magna Britannia, Francia, Hibernia,/Primo./At the Parliament Begun and Holden at Westminster, the Seventeenth Day of March, Anno Dom. 1714…”</I>, 8 pages, 7” x 11.5”, front and verso, <I>“London, Printed by John Baskett, Printer to the Kings most Excellent Majesty, And by the Assigns of Thomas Newcomb, and Henry Hills, deceas’d. 1715.”</I> The act is <I>“for making the Militia of that Part of Great Britain called England more Useful…”</I> <br /><br />A 1761 act of George III provides that if <I>“one of the People called Quakers, shall be chosen by Lot to serve in the Militia”</I> and refuses and does not provide a substitute, he shall pay the cost of hiring a substitute for three years. <br /><br />A 1778 act requires that <I>“when the Lot shall have fallen on any one being, or pretending to be, one of the People called Quakers, no Man shall be deemed, taken, and accepted to be a Quaker…unless he produces…a Certificate, under the Hand of two or more reputable Housekeepers of the People called Quakers, acknowledging him to be one of their Persuasion.”</I> <br /><br />A 1798 act provides for George III <I>“to accept the Services of such parts of His Militia Forces in this Kingdom as may voluntarily offer themselves to be employed in Ireland…for the Suppression of the present Rebellion there…”</I> <br /><br />Except for the George I act described above, the laws in this book were apparently printed circa 1800. Herbrand Arthur Russell (1858-1940), 11th Duke of Bedford, whose bookplate is affixed in front, gained the rank of officer in the service of the Grenadier Guards and was made a Colonel of the 3rd Battalion, Bedfordshire regiment (1897-1908). He fought in the Egyptian campaign in 1882 and, in World War I, was mentioned in dispatches. Herbrand was Lord Lieutenant of Middlesex (1898-1926). His grandfather’s brother was Lord John Russell, British Prime Minister. <br />

        Piccolomini, or the First Part of Wallenstein, a Drama in Five Acts ... [bound with:] The Death of Wallenstein. A Tragedy in Five Acts

      London: Printed for N.T. Longman and O. Rees, By G. Woodfall, 1800. First edition of Coleridge's English translation. Engraved portrait. [iv], 214; [ii], [ii, general title], 157, [1, ads] pp., with half-title to first part and general title ("Wallenstein. A Drama in Two Parts") bound with second part. 8vo. Period half calf and marbled boards, green morocco spine label. Some foxing to portrait and first few leaves. First edition of Coleridge's English translation. Engraved portrait. [iv], 214; [ii], [ii, general title], 157, [1, ads] pp., with half-title to first part and general title ("Wallenstein. A Drama in Two Parts") bound with second part. 8vo. The first English edition of Schiller's Wallenstein, set in Germany during the Thirty Years War, and translated by Samuel Taylor Coleridge from a manuscript copy of the first German edition of 1799. Coleridge completed much of the translation - a free and poetic translation in blank verse - at Lamb's home in London,, seated at his desk in "a voluminous five-penny floral dressing-gown decorated with hieroglyphics ... looking suspiciously 'like a conjuror,' according to Lamb" (Holmes, Coleridge: Early Visions, p. 261). The translation, which omitted the first part of Schiller's trilogy (Wallenstein's Camp), was done in part to capitalize on the contemporary fashion for Schiller, whose verse-drama The Robbers Coleridge had long admired. It was one of many of Coleridge's translation schemes hatched during his time abroad studying the language and literature of Germany. "In the event, the project was a financial disaster, earning him only £50 in advances, while Longman lost £250 on the combined editions" (ibid, p. 267). Despite that, Coleridge "was proud of his work, and long afterwards described it as 'a specimen of my happiest attempt, during the prime manhood of my intellect, before I had been buffeted by adversity or crossed by fatality" (ibid, p. 268).

        Historie der boecaniers, of vrybuyters van America.Amsterdam, Nicolaas ten Hoorn, 1700. 3 parts (paginated as 2) in 1 volume. 4to. With an engraved title-page, a folding engraved map of South and Central America, and 7 engraved plates (1 folding). Red (goatskin) morocco (ca. 1920), with richly gold tooled turn-ins, double fillets on board edges, gilt edges, by the French Binders of Garden City, N.Y., a reincarnation of Robert Hoe's Club Bindery, arguably the finest bindery ever to operate in America.

      Alden & Landis 700/11; Sabin 23469; cf. Howgego, to 1800, E-39 (other editions); for the bindery: T. Boss & M. Antonetti, Bound to be the best: The Club Bindery. Catalogue of an exhibition at the Grolier Club (2004). Second, much expanded, edition in the original Dutch, of a best-selling illustrated adventure story written by a former Caribbean pirate: the most important primary source and "almost the only comprehensive source of information for pirate activities in the seventeenth century"(Howgego). Exquemelin (ca. 1645-1707) began his career in service of the French West India Company on a 1666 voyage to Tortuga in the Caribbean. There he went into the service of the notorious Welsh privateer Henry Morgan. He returned to Europe ca. 1674 and made a new career as a reputable surgeon in Amsterdam, where he wrote the present book. The text is divided into three parts. The first tells of the French voyage to the West Indies in 1666 and describes the circumstances there. The second recounts the dreadful deeds of the Caribbean pirates, especially François l'Olonnais and Henry Morgan, and the third describes the burning and looting of Panama City by Morgan's unruly men.In 1895 a group of Grolier Club members led by Robert Hoe, founded the Club Bindery, with the intention of elevating America's bookbinding to match that of Europe. The Club Bindery works "surpassed - in design, forwarding, and finishing - anything that had been produced in the United States until then" (Antonetti). After Robert Hoe's dead the bindery reincarnated as the French Binders of Garden City, New York. With a dampstain throughout, in the lower right corner, a couple smudges and specks and the map with a small restored tear, otherwise a good copy. Some very minor wear along the board edges and a bit more noticeably along the hinges and the raised bands, otherwise the bindings is in very good condition.

        Album mit 39 ausgeschnittenen Blumenbildern aus der Familie des Berliner Verlegers Christoph Friedrich Nicolai.

      Berlin um 1800. - 8vo (ca. 19,5x16,5 cm), Halblederband der Zeit, 39 Blätter mit aufmontierten Blumenbildern. Album mit 39 Decoupages oder Papierstecklingen mit Blumen. Deutschland / Berlin Ende 18. Jahrhunderts, um 1800. In einem Halblederband der Zeit mit marmorierten Einbanddeckelbezügen, etwas berieben, innen gelegentlich leichter gebräunt, wenige Blumenbilder etwas später ausgebessert. Ein schönes Album mit sogenannten Blumen-Decoupages, aus dem Kreis des Berliner Schriftstellers und Verlegers Christoph Friedrich Nicolai (1733-1811), der die berühmte Nicolai'sche Buchhandlung seines Vaters geerbt hatte und mit Lessing und Moses Mendelssohn befreundet war. Mit dessem Exlibris auf dem vorderen Innendeckel. Die hier vorliegenden Scherenschnitte wurden wahrscheinlich von einer jungen Frau aus dem Umkreis der Nicolai&#146;schen Familie in ihrer Freizeit gemacht, sie haben zwar nicht die Qualität der berühmten Papiermosaiken der berühmten Decoupage-Künstlerin Mary Delany (1700-1788), sie könnte aber von deren berühmten Blumenmosaiken gehört haben. Im 17. Jahrhundert war Italien, vor allem Venedig, Vorreiter im Handel mit dem Fernen Osten und es wird allgemein angenommen, dass über diese Handelsverbindungen die ausgeschnittenen Papierdekorationen ihren Weg nach Europa gefunden haben. Die wichtigste Künstlerin, die Decoupage für Blumenbilder verwendete, war Mary Delany (geb. Granville, 1700-1788), eine englische Künstlerin und Briefschreiberin, berühmt für ihre Papiermosaiken. Album with 39 decoupages or paper cuttings of flowers. Germany / Berlin late 18tg century, around 1800. Half calf over marbled boards, rubbed and soiled, some cuttings probably later fixed (repaired). Nice album with flower decoupages from the circle of Berlin enlightement writer and publisher Christoph Friedrich Nicolai (1733-1811), who inherited his father's famous Nicolai'sche Buchhandlung. His enthusiasm for English literature won for him the friendship of Lessing and Moses Mendelssohn. These paper -cuttings are quite simple and probably made by a young woman in leisure times. They don't have the quality of the famous paper mosaicks of Mrs. Delany, but she or him might have heard of the famous art work in England in that time. The word decoupage comes from Middle French decouper, meaning to cut out or cut from something. In the 17th century, Italy, especially Venice, was at the forefront of trade with the Far East and it is generally thought that it is rheough these trade links that the cut out paper decorations made their way into Europe. The most important artist using decoupage for flower paintings was Mary Delany (née Granville, 1700-1788), an english artist and letter-writer, famous for her paper-mosaicks.

OCLC no. 68880888 (one copy only, at the Koninklijke Bibliotheek). Soliman der Zweite, to a libretto by Franz Xaver Huber after Charles Simon Favart, was first performed in Vienna at the Kärntnertortheater on October 1, 1799. "Among the works Süssmayr composed for the Kärntnertortheater, Der Marktschreyer (1799) and Solimann der Zweite (1799) enjoyed the most performances. The latter's success is reflected in Beethoven's set of piano variations (woo76, 1799) on the terzetto 'Tändeln und Scherzen'. Süssmayr, like most Viennese opera composers, used a wide range of national styles in his German works, including Italian seria and buffa idioms, French comique forms, popular German styles, and melodrama. His melodic gift and formal craftsmanship show best in his solos, duets, and trios. " Linda Tyler, et al. in Grove Music Online. [Attributes: Soft Cover]
