        A superb English engraving of the "Landsdowne Portrait" of George Washington

      [London], ca. 1800. 13" x 19.75". "Engraving, GENERAL WASHINGTON, ([London?, c. 1800]), 13"" x 19.75"" on a 15"" x 22.75"" sheet (visible). Credit to top right of title reads: ""Engraved by James Heath Historical Engraver to his Majesty and to his Royal Highness the Prince of Wales from the original Picture in the Collection of the Marquis [sic] of Landsdown[e]."" Very light soiling, else fine condition. Simply framed in a gilt molding. Not examined out of frame. In April 1796, Senator William Bingham of Pennsylvania commissioned Gilbert Stuart to execute a full-length portrait of Washington and gave it as a gift to former British Prime Minister William Petty-FitzMaurice, the Second Earl of Shelburne (and subsequently the first Marquess of Landsdowne). During the American Revolution, Petty-FitzMaurice was a sympathizer with the colonies and during his tenure as Prime Minister (July 4, 1782 to April 2, 1783) he helped secure the Treaty of Paris which ended the war and recognized independence. (For his accomplishment, he was forced from office after only nine months). Not in Baker (but matches dimensions of number 250). Noted in Stan. V. Henkles, The Hampton L. Carson Collection of Engraved Portraits of Gen. George Washington, January 21-22, 1904, Lot 479. "

Der Diamant (vajra) durchschneidet (cchadika) Unwissenheit, Wahn und Illusion, welche Leid verursachen, und führt zur vollkommenen Weisheit des transzendentalen Verstehens (Prajnaparamita). Das Diamant-Sutra ist ein Dialog zwischen Buddha und seinem Schüler Subhuti (tib. Rabyor), welcher um Erklärungen zu einigen Punkten der Lehre bittet. Der Text ist eine Zusammenfassung der grundlegenden Lehren des Prajnaparamita, welches im 9. Jh. ins Tibetanische übersetzt wurde und 12 Bände umfasst. Damit war dieses Sutra eine eigentliche Kurzanleitung, um das Nirvana zu erreichen und die Lehren Buddhas zu verinnerlichen, und es galt als verdienstvoll, dieses zu lesen und zu rezitieren.

        Ã‰LÉMENS DE PERSPECTIVE PRATIQUE, A L'USAGE DES ARTISTES, Suivis De Réflexions et Conseils à un Elève sur la Peinture, et particulièrement sur le genre du Paysage.

      First edition. A student of Joseph Vernet, influenced by Claude Lorrain and Nicolas Poussin, Valenciennes was the most prominent French historical landscape painter of his day as well as being an original and influential theorist on the art of landscape painting. "In the late 18th century, Pierre-Henri de Valenciennes changed the tide for landscape painting in France. Like Poussin, he saw landscape painting as worthy of the status of history painting and worked to convince the Academy and his contemporaries. In 1800 he published a groundbreaking book on landscape painting, Elémens de perspective practique. The book emphasized the aesthetic ideal of the 'historic landscape,' which must be based on the study of real nature. The success of the book pushed the Academy to create a prize for 'historic landscape' in 1817. The next generation of French landscape painters would benefit greatly from Valenciennes' efforts." ["Brief History of the Landscape Genre," www.getty.edu]. Of particular importance in his treatise is its final chapter, devoted entirely to garden design. Valenciennes considered the landscape painter to be uniquely qualified for the design of gardens, and provides precepts to follow in creating them. His insistence on Nature as the primary model for landscape painting is echoed in his views on landscape gardening. The alignment or trimming of trees is completely rejected. The importance of respecting the requirements and opportunities of the individual site is continually stressed. Italian gardens are singled out for their picturesque qualities (Valenciennes spent much time there) and English gardens are also considered, though not without some criticism. Even such French picturesque gardens as the Petit Trianon, Bagatelle and the Désert de Retz are faulted, but with the allowance that with complete neglect and the passage of time they might arrive at a suitable imitation of Nature. Ermenonville, however, is regularly singled out for praise and seems to stand as the perfect example of the type of garden Valenciennes attempted to promote.4to (25.7 x 20 cm); (ii) + xxxii + 644 + xii pp. + 36 folding engraved plates. Recased in later quarter vellum with glazed marbled boards; minor repairs at board edges; title written in ink on spine; marginal damp stain on last 12 plates, barely touching image on 6 of them.

        [K620]. Clavier Auszug von Mozarts ZauberflÂœte fürs Clavier eingerichtet von Fridrich[!] Eunike Churfürstl: Cölnischen Hof-und Opern Sænger. [Piano-vocal score]

      Bonn: Gestochen und herausgegeben von N: Simmrock Churfürstl: Cölnischen Hof- und Kammer Musikus [PN] 4. [ca. 1800]. Oblong folio. Half green vellum with contemporary green boards. 1f. (title with large oval vignette by I. G. Pflugfelder depicting two disconsolate muses over Mozart's grave), 3-145, [i] (publisher's catalogue) pp. Engraved. Text in German. The publisher's catalogue lists editions up to ca. 1800 (Mozart, La clemenza di Tito). French text underlay added in red ink to Terzetto no. 19 (Tamino's part only), pp. 94-99. No. 2, Papageno's aria ("Der Vogelfänger bin ich ja") re-engraved (different clef shapes). Label of Chalet, Marchand Papetier, Paris, to upper outer corner of front pastedown. Boards quite worn, rubbed and bumped; spine lacking. Moderately browned; some stains (pp. 58-59, 67-68, ); occasional paper imperfections; upper outer corner of pp. 7-8 lacking from pp. 7-8 with loss of several notes; price to title erased. . A variant (probably later) issue of Simrock's 1793 edition. Köchel 6 p. 712. Hoboken 12, 558 (with older version of p. 120, lacking plate number). RISM M4780 (three copies in the U.S., not distinguishing among issues). Except for pp. 18-19, all plates are characterized by an inclined violin (G) clef; pages 18-19 have an upright clef instead. The copy at the Eda Kuhn Loeb Music Library at Harvard University, tentatively dated 1796 and supposedly a first issue, shows the inclined G clef to all pages. On the other hand, the number and tempo of the aria are presented in a style different from the rest of the volume, i.e., as an caption title above the first system rather than to the left of it (as in the present copy). Also, the aria is the only number of the opera billed, in another caption, as "aus der Zauberflöte." A comparison of the publisher's catalogues, however, confirms that the Harvard copy is earlier. A peculiar detail of the Simrock vocal score, present from the first issue on, is the replacement of the famous high Fs in the aria of the Queen of the Night, "Der Hölle Rache," with Ds, causing awkward dissonances. It would seem that this was originally a transcription error, but it was never corrected, not even in post-1814 issues in which many other pages are re-engraved. The arranger of this score, Friedrich Eunike (1764-1844), was a tenor who had performed the role of Tamino. Die Zauberflöte, Mozart's only work in the popular genre of "magic" opera, was first performed on September 30, 1791 in Vienna at the Theater auf der Wieden to a libretto by the theatre manager who commissioned the work and played the part of Papageno, Emanuel Schikaneder. "Die Zauberflöte is distinguished from the bulk of contemporary Singspiels not merely by the quality of its music but also by the serious meanings that underlie what on the surface may seem childish pantomime or low comedy." The New Grove Vol. 12 p. 721. It became immensely successful, and numbers from it were issued individually shortly after the premiere.

        The Glass on the Road". Watercolor on paper, signed "T. Rowlandson" , lower left

      N.p. 1800 - Image 11 x 9 inches; matted and framed to 19 x 16 inches overall. Fine Original Rowlandson Watercolor. A fine, large, characteristic Rowlandson watercolor showing a well-dressed man receiving a drink from a rotund publican whose eye is caught by an attractive young lady in a carriage at the rear; two dogs in the foreground. The women appears oblivious to the two men, but whether this is actually so is typical of Rowlandson's frequent ambiguity, and.who knows? Certainly the gentleman looks well pleased.Thomas Rowlandson (1756-1827) was probably the finest of the draftsmen and caricaturists who portrayed life and manners in 18th and early 19th century England. Starting life as a painter of portraits and serious subjects, he found it more profitable to produce humorous drawings of low life and ridiculous subjects. He was also an accomplished illustrator, notably for the Tours of Dr. Syntax.A fine example of this master's work. Image 11 x 9 inches; matted and framed to 19 x 16 inches overall

        [ALBUM OF WATERCOLOR DRAWINGS OF BUTTERFLIES AND MOTHS AFTER ABBOT, TITLED IN MANUSCRIPT:] HISTOIRE NATURELLE DES LÉPIDOPTÈRES LES PLUS RARES DE GÉORGIE D'APRÈS LES OBSERVATIONS DE M. JEAN ABBOT. IMPRIMÉ À LONDRES EN 1797

      [France. 1800-1830].. Manuscript title within a red ruled border, 2pp. manuscript index in rear. Forty pen-and-ink and watercolor drawings, each captioned in red ink, recto only on 40 sheets of wove paper (watermarked Horne). Oblong octavo. Contemporary half black morocco and blue boards, yellow endpapers. Lacks front free endpaper. Very good. John Abbot was one of the most important American natural history artists and his illustrations are amongst the finest ever made. Born in London in 1751, Abbot sailed for Virginia in July 1773, with orders for both actual specimens and drawings of the local insects. For the next two years he continued to collect and paint, sending home three insect collections, although only one arrived safely. The loss of these two valuable collections at sea together with the worry over political unrest in Virginia led Abbot to move to Georgia. He settled in St. George Parish (later Burke County), Georgia in December 1775. Abbot traveled widely throughout Georgia devoting his time to the study of the natural flora and fauna. The flow of specimen collections and watercolors of insects ensured that his name became known to many of the foremost natural scientists and collectors of the day, both in America and Europe. Abbot's NATURAL HISTORY OF THE RARER LEPIDOPTEROUS INSECTS OF GEORGIA was first published in London in 1797. The present French manuscript includes forty watercolors based on the plates from that edition. The images comprise fifty-three depictions of butterflies and moths on the forty sheets, with eleven of the images including depictions of the lepidoptera in caterpillar form and several with depictions of flora and/or chrysalis. Each image is captioned in French above or below the image and numbered 1to 40 in the upper right corner; the alphabetical index corresponds to each watercolor ensuring that no images have been removed from the album. Between 1829 and 1837 interest in Abbot in France was greatly elevated due to the publication of a new work based on Abbot watercolors commissioned by lepidopterists Jean Baptiste Boisduval and John Eatton LeConte. It would seem possible that this album was related in some way to lepidopterist Jean Baptiste Boisduval.

        Voyage de Dimo et Nicolo Stephanopoli en Grece pendant les annees 1797 et 1798. 2 volumes.

      Paris, Guilleminet, 1800 (an VIII). - circa 22,4 x 15 cm. XVI, 303 pp.; 2 ff., 319 pp., 8 (2 folding) engraved plates Half-calf around 1850 with two labels to spine Blackmer 1606; Weber II, 642. Second printing in the year of the first edition, but now with the real printer instead of the fictional "Londres". The two Stephanopoli, uncle and nephew, of distant Greek origin but born in Corsica, were about to explore plants in Greece when they got introduced to Napoleon and asked to act as intermediaries between the French and the Maniot leaders in Greece. "Dimo und Nicolo Stephanopoli, Nachkommen einer nach Korsika emigrierten griechischen Familie aus Mani, reisten 1797-98 als Agenten Bonapartes auf die Ionischen Inseln, auf die Peloponnes und nach Kythera. Ihr Auftrag bestand darin, Informationen über diese Gebiete zu sammeln, die Bereitschaft ihrer Bewohner, gegen die osmanischen Herrschaft zu revoltieren, zu sondieren und durch das Versprechen von französischer Hilfe im Fall einer griechischen Revolution eine günstige Stimmung gegenüber Frankreich zu propagieren, das zu dieser Zeit seinen Einfluss im ostlichen Mittelmeerraum zu festigen versuchte." (Chatzipanagioti-Sangmeister 1067). - The folding plates show views of Gyrthion and Kythira. - Minor browning, small label to firt endpaper, bindings a little rubbed, slightly bumped, one hinge with some cracking, but solid.

In 1797 he began his military career as a Royal Prussian Lieutenant in the Second Engineers Brigade; taught fortifications and fortress war at the Military Engineering Academy in Potsdam. Compiled the "Encyclopädie der Kriegswissenschaften und der Kriegskunst". He was a prolific scientist who wrote on astronomy, geodesy, economics and architecture. He was the first to "apply mathematics for the well-being of the state and its citizens, not so much to questions of distribution and political welfare as to economic law and theory, and above all to a multitude of technical questions that fall under the jurisdiction of the government: structural engineering in construction inspections; ballistics for artillery; mechanics and machinery in mills, transport, manufacturing, and mining." -- Rüdiger Campe: The Game of Probability: Literature and Calculation from Pascal to Kleist (2012).

      Bonn: Gestochen und herausgegeben von N: Simmrock Churfürstl: Cölnischen Hof- und Kammer Musikus [PN] 4. [ca. 1800]. Oblong folio. Half green vellum with contemporary green boards. 1f. (title with large oval vignette by I. G. Pflugfelder depicting two disconsolate muses over Mozart's grave), 3-145, [i] (publisher's catalogue) pp. Engraved. Text in German. The publisher's catalogue lists editions up to ca. 1800 (Mozart, La clemenza di Tito). French text underlay added in red ink to Terzetto no. 19 (Tamino's part only), pp. 94-99. No. 2, Papageno's aria ("Der Vogelfänger bin ich ja") re-engraved (different clef shapes). Label of Chalet, Marchand Papetier, Paris, to upper outer corner of front pastedown. Boards quite worn, rubbed and bumped; spine lacking. Moderately browned; some stains (pp. 58-59, 67-68, ); occasional paper imperfections; upper outer corner of pp. 7-8 lacking from pp. 7-8 with loss of several notes; price to title erased. . A variant (probably later) issue of Simrock's 1793 edition. Köchel 6 p. 712. Hoboken 12, 558 (with older version of p. 120, lacking plate number). RISM M4780 (three copies in the U.S., not distinguishing among issues). Except for pp. 18-19, all plates are characterized by an inclined violin (G) clef; pages 18-19 have an upright clef instead. The copy at the Eda Kuhn Loeb Music Library at Harvard University, tentatively dated 1796 and supposedly a first issue, shows the inclined G clef to all pages. On the other hand, the number and tempo of the aria are presented in a style different from the rest of the volume, i.e., as an caption title above the first system rather than to the left of it (as in the present copy). Also, the aria is the only number of the opera billed, in another caption, as "aus der Zauberflöte." A comparison of the publisher's catalogues, however, confirms that the Harvard copy is earlier. A peculiar detail of the Simrock vocal score, present from the first issue on, is the replacement of the famous high Fs in the aria of the Queen of the Night, "Der Hölle Rache," with Ds, causing awkward dissonances. It would seem that this was originally a transcription error, but it was never corrected, not even in post-1814 issues in which many other pages are re-engraved. The arranger of this score, Friedrich Eunike (1764-1844), was a tenor who had performed the role of Tamino. Die Zauberflöte, Mozart's only work in the popular genre of "magic" opera, was first performed on September 30, 1791 in Vienna at the Theater auf der Wieden to a libretto by the theatre manager who commissioned the work and played the part of Papageno, Emanuel Schikaneder. "Die Zauberflöte is distinguished from the bulk of contemporary Singspiels not merely by the quality of its music but also by the serious meanings that underlie what on the surface may seem childish pantomime or low comedy." The New Grove Vol. 12 p. 721. It became immensely successful, and numbers from it were issued individually shortly after the premiere.

        Menou, General en Chef, Aux Habitans du Kaire et de toute l'Egypte

      [Cairo?]: No printer [Imprimerie nationale?], 15 frimaire an 9, [6th December 1800]. Letterpress single sheet (435 × 305 mm) in French and Arabic. Float-mounted with photo corners and and presented in a brown wooden frame with a white gold edge. Faint damp-staining to right-hand side, small pale mark to head, a few areas of very light spotting as usual, gently creased across middle. Very good condition. Poster issued by the commander of the French army in Egypt months before their defeat by British and Ottoman forces in 1801. Napoleon had led the newly created Armée d'Orient to Egypt in 1798, seeking to challenge British influence in India; perhaps realising that his own political ambitions would be best pursued at home, he returned to France in August the following year after the disastrous siege of Acre. Napoleon was succeeded by Jean-Baptiste Kléber, who was soon assassinated and himself succeeded by 'Abd Allah Jacques Menou, "a French officer (and former nobleman) who had turned Muslim, was determined to maintain the occupation and administered at first a tolerably settled country, although he lacked the prestige of his two predecessors" (Encyc. Brit.). Although a military failure, the French invasion of Egypt was a turning point in the fledgling career of Napoleon Bonaparte as well as in the twin histories of the French Republic and European colonialism. It has also been interpreted as symbolising the new era of Western ascendancy following centuries of Ottoman pre-eminence; indeed, it was widely perceived this way in the Muslim world at the time and thus proved an important catalyst in the nascent Arab Renaissance. The Revolutionary tenets of "liberty" and "equality" are rendered into Arabic at the head of the poster and the Arabic basmalah is likewise translated into French, but Menou's wording ultimately speaks to the desperate solicitude of an embattled ruler: "I have already told you that I punish only evildoers and those who do not fear God and his Prophet … I repeat to you once more, the French Republic and the famous warrior Bonaparte have ordered me to govern you with kindness, justice and humanity". A remarkable survival from one of the defining moments in modern history.

      1800 1800 - Gouache, auf Bütten, verso signiert und datiert „Carolina Friederica Friedrich à l an 1800". 29:20,3 cm. Die Tochter des Tapetenmalers und Radierers David Friedrich (1719-1766) war Schülerin ihres Vaters und ihres Bruders, des Historienmalers Alexander Friedrich (1744-1793). Bei ersterem erlernte sie das Zeichnen und die Anwendung der Wasserfarben, bei ihrem Bruder die Ölmalerei. Darüber hinaus bildete sie sich durch Beobachtung der Natur autodidaktisch weiter. Beachtung fand sie schon früh durch Chr.L. von Hagedorn (1712-1780), Kunstkritiker und Direktor der Dresdener Akademie. Vom Kurfürsten Friedrich August III. wurde sie 1770/71 zur Pensionärin (Stipendiatin) der Dresdener Akademie mit einer jährlichen Gratifikation von 25 Talern ernannt, 1774 wurde sie Ehrenmitglied. Schon zu Lebzeiten fand sie viel Anerkennung und war seit 1776 auf nahezu jeder Akademie-Ausstellung in Dresden mit ihren Werken vertreten. 1783 wurde ihre Stipendium-Gratifikation erhöht, zugleich erfolgte die Ernennung zur Unterlehrerin für Stilleben an der Akademie. Die Künstlerin lebte jahrelang in einer Hausgemeinschaft mit ihrem Kollegen Johann Eleazar Zeissig, gen. Schenau (1737-1805) und unterrichtete bis 1812 zahlreiche Schüler und Schülerinnen. Ihre Zeichnungen, Aquarelle und Gouachen sind u.a. im Kupferstichkabinett in Dresden, der Graphiksammlung der Kunstsammlungen Weimar zu finden. Auch in der Sammlung von König Friedrich August III. war sie mit Arbeiten vertreten.

        Mercure Britannique; ou notices historiques et critiques sur les affaires du tems

      De l'Imprimerie de W., et C. Spilsbury, London 1800 - Five volumes, octavo; a very attractive set in contemporary full tree calf, spines gilt with double coloured labels. The island fortress and turmoil on the continent. Printed in London for a continental audience, Mercure Britannique presents a range of political essays, reports and despatches reporting on affairs unfolding in Europe during a period of unprecedented change.The closing years of the eighteenth century saw the consolidation of Napoleon's political power and militarisation of the French Republic. The author, Jacques Mallet du Pan, was vigorously opposed to the revolution in France and wrote from the relative safety of Switzerland, using a London publisher to print his material for continental distribution (indeed, the imprint boasts these volumes were available in Hamburg, Vienna, Berlin, Leipzig and Venice). Mallet du Pan championed the cause of émigrés and courted the conservative anti-revolutionary governments of continental Europe. As both a Royalist and champion of the aristocracy, he idealised the British constitution as a preferred model for the future of Europe. Accordingly, much of the Mercure Britannique is concerned with developments in the British political scene.Of particular military interest is the detailed examination of the Napoleonic Egyptian campaign, including a public letter by Nelson followed by a list of British ships in the line Battle of the Nile. Likewise, the extent of the Russian empire is probed with a view to expansion, prescient given the future course of the war.This set is beautifully preserved in full contemporary matching calf bindings.

      London: De l'Imprimerie de W., et C. Spilsbury, 1800. Five volumes, octavo; a very attractive set in contemporary full tree calf, spines gilt with double coloured labels. The island fortress and turmoil on the continent. Printed in London for a continental audience, Mercure Britannique presents a range of political essays, reports and despatches reporting on affairs unfolding in Europe during a period of unprecedented change.The closing years of the eighteenth century saw the consolidation of Napoleon's political power and militarisation of the French Republic. The author, Jacques Mallet du Pan, was vigorously opposed to the revolution in France and wrote from the relative safety of Switzerland, using a London publisher to print his material for continental distribution (indeed, the imprint boasts these volumes were available in Hamburg, Vienna, Berlin, Leipzig and Venice). Mallet du Pan championed the cause of émigrés and courted the conservative anti-revolutionary governments of continental Europe. As both a Royalist and champion of the aristocracy, he idealised the British constitution as a preferred model for the future of Europe. Accordingly, much of the Mercure Britannique is concerned with developments in the British political scene.Of particular military interest is the detailed examination of the Napoleonic Egyptian campaign, including a public letter by Nelson followed by a list of British ships in the line Battle of the Nile. Likewise, the extent of the Russian empire is probed with a view to expansion, prescient given the future course of the war.This set is beautifully preserved in full contemporary matching calf bindings.
