        Innocent Recreation

      Published by Testolini, London 1800 - A delightful, intimate genre scene in a domestic interior. The scene depicted in this charming print is an allegory of innocence. It pictures a young girl, who herself personifies virtue, engaged in the innocent activity of feeding her pet fowl. Clad in a white dress, she smiles and gazes at the viewer with a wide-eyed expression of childish wonder as she sprinkles breadcrumbs over the beak of a young bird awaiting the snack in anticipation, as its mother looks on approvingly. Colour-printed stipple engraving. Very good condition apart from some mild mat burn and a few tiny nicks at the edge of the top margin.

A working sea-chart of the smaller Indonesian islands, divided into two: the upper section covers the Banda Sea, with Sera, and Buru; the lower section shows the Lesser Sunda Islands, including Bali and Flores.

The premises were immortalised by Charles Dicken's 1846 novel 'Dombey and Son' as the shop kept by Sol Gils: the 'Little Midshipman' was illustrated in the book.

      Robert Laurie and James Whittle, London 1800 - Large folio, measuring 22 by 15.5 inches, or 56 by 40 cm, with the 13 maps contained herein all double paged. The maps are copper engraved and hand-colored in outline, most with typical Baroque style, often figurative, cartouches in the corners with the title of the particular map contained therein. The maps are watermarked 1794. They are also printed on a paper with a high rag content and thus well-preserved, with a bit of light toning and only trivial soiling otherwise. A few leaves have a long, narrow light dampstain along a margin, which few would find bothersome. There are a few minor chips and/or tears besides, again not intrusive of the maps proper. Rebacked with modern calf. Otherwise the marbled boards and the corner calf triangles are contemporary. The latter have wear, as do the edges.

        THEATRUM POETARUM ANGLICANORUM: CONTAINING THE NAMES AND CHARACTERS OF ALL THE ENGLISH POETS

      Canterbury, London 1800 - Owned by George Daniel, then Mark Pattison. 203 x 121 mm (8 x 4 3/4"). lxxix, [i], 336, 6 pp. Edited by Sir Samuel Egerton Brydges. First Printing of this Enlarged, Updated Edition. Appealing recent brown quarter morocco over linen boards, raised bands, red morocco label. Front flyleaf with ownership inscription of "G. D. / Canonbury"; title page with small, discreet embossed stamp of "Mark Pattison, Lincoln College, Oxon" (see below for both). In exceptionally fine condition inside and out. This is a series of brief biographies of 165 English poets who flourished between the years 1270 and 1603, beginning with Robert of Gloucester and ending with Queen Elizabeth herself. According to DNB, "it includes considered accounts of Shakespeare and Marlowe, a well-written introductory 'discourse on poets and poetry', a panegyric on his brother John, and a reticent allusion to his famous uncle," John Milton. Phillips was educated by Milton and later served as his uncle's amenuensis, after the poet's eyesight failed. The editor here, Sir Samuel Egerton Brydges (1762-1837), had a great desire to achieve literary fame, but "he was unhappily led to mistake his delight in reading great works of literature for an evidence of his capacity to produce similar works himself," and his original imaginative works are undistinguished. (DNB) He nevertheless did good service for British literature by producing a number of useful bibliographies, and by seeking out and editing for re-publication both the works of standard authors and rare works which had previously been accessible only to a few wealthy collectors. The provenance here does a great deal to distinguish our copy. Our earlier owner, "G. D. / Canonbury," is surely George Daniel of Canonbury Square, Islington, who amassed one of the most extensive and outstanding collections of dramatic literature, early Shakespeare editions, and Elizabethan ballads. Our other known owner, Mark Pattison (1813-84), was the head of Lincoln College at Oxford University from 1861 and an author and editor of considerable importance. According to DNB, "he had the reputation of being the most learned man in England.". First Printing of this Enlarged, Updated Edition [Attributes: Hard Cover]

London 1798. - 'The African Association was founded in 1788. Its activities mark the beginning of African exploration in a systematic way, as well as the furthering of British trade and political prestige on that continent. This association was later merged into the Royal Geographical Society. The first concern of the African Association was the River Niger - where was its source and what was the direction of its flow, etc. The first four expeditions were unfortunate for the leaders, Ledyard, Lucas, Horneman, and Houghton, all of whom either died while enroute or were murdered by the fanatical Moors. The fifth, that of Mungo Park, was rich in geographical results, though he too died on his second expedition' (Cox I, p.388). This book contains the travel-accounts in Africa of Daniel Hougton (1790-91) and of Mungo Park (1795-97, his first expedition); with geographical explanation by James Rennell. - Good copy; very rare.Gay 2788 (English ed.); Not in Tiele.

        Death of Captain Cook

      London: circa, 1800. Engraving, 16.5 x 22 cm. (image size), tightly clipped not affecting image and retaining central caption, a good strong impression, mounted. Popular issue. An unusual version of the famous scene at Kealakekua Bay, in a very good impression. Although the original image on which this is loosely based is clearly that of Webber, the engraving bears close comparison with the version of the scene first published by the engraver Alexander Hogg in 1784, and included in the important compendium edited by George William Anderson, {i A New, Authentic, and Complete Collection of Voyages Round the World} (see Forbes 61). Given that the "Anderson" was much re-issued and copied, it is possible that this print originally derives from one of the later editions.

        Ilias kai Odysseia. [Four volumes.]

      Oxonia: ex Ergasteriou Typographikou Akademias 1800 - 5 engraved plates (two portrait busts of Homer, a portrait each of Thomas and Lord Grenville, and a plate depicting a column), plates spotted, some light offsetting to text, pp. viii, 396; [vi], 421, [3, blank]; [vi], 328; [vi], 314, [2], 82, 4to, contemporary red morocco, boards with central gilt stamp of the arms of the Earl of Cawdor, spines lettered in gilt, red morocco doublures with a border of fourteen gilt fillets, edges gilt on the rough, spines sunned, a touch of rubbing to extremities, doublures offset onto endpapers and outermost leaves of each vol., very good One of the rare and spectacular large-paper copies of the Grenville Homer, an edition which rivals the Foulis edition in its scale and bibliophilic attractions. Only 25 copies were printed, and a number of these were used as presentation copies - including this one. The editors, William Wyndham, Lord Grenville, and his brother Thomas Grenville, have inscribed an initial blank ‘From the Two Old Brothers . To their excellent Friend John Frederick Earl of Cawdor, 1829’ (in Thomas’s hand). Tipped in are two letters, one from Lord Grenville and one from Thomas, presenting the book to Lord Cawdor for his library at Stackpole Court.At the time of presentation Lord Grenville was retired from politics (he had been foreign secretary when the book was published, resigning with Pitt’s government before ending up as Prime Minister himself in 1806), while his elder brother Thomas was also relaxing, having since 1818 ‘lived in the company of his friends and his books, and devoted himself to the formation of his splendid library’ (ODNB), which was left to the British Museum after his death in 1846. Lord Cawdor was Lord Lieutenant of Carmarthenshire at this time. ‘This is the most critical edition of Homer which the university of Oxford has published. the work is printed in a handsome Greek type, with very few contractions; and the Large Paper copies are enriched with three very beautiful engravings, two of the busts of Homer and the third an elegant pillar with escutcheons of the Grenville arms’ (Dibdin). This copy also has portraits of Thomas and Lord Grenville. The final section of the fourth volume contains 82 pages of readings provided by Richard Porson from a collation of the Harleian manuscript; in the small-paper copies this section is different setting of type, filling 88 pages.‘At the mention of the large paper Grenville Homer, where is the classical Bibliomaniac who does not sigh at his inability, or want of opportunity, to possess it? -- and, in proportion, rejoice extravagantly on its possession?’ (Dbidin, Library Companion, p. 617).

        Map of Morris's Purchase or West Geneseo in the State of New York: Exhibiting Part of the Lakes Erie and Ontario, the Straights of Niagara, Chautauque Lake and All the Principal Waters . Purchased by the Holland Land Company .

      New York 1800 - A few light stains, else excellent condition. Rare. The first detailed map of New York State west of the Genesee River, in a very strong example. Ellicott produced the map on behalf of the Holland Land Company in order to sell their extensive land holdings in the region. Nestler hails the map as "probably the most important map of western NY when Buffalo was still known as New Amsterdam, and when land companies were luring settlers to this new frontier." It is superbly detailed, as Rumsey notes, in that it shows ¿every tributary of every tributary of every stream.¿ The map is equally precise with regard to towns, townships, reservations, Indian villages and roads. The map displays three and a half million acres purchased in 1792 by the Holland Land Company, a Dutch consortium, from the American banker Robert Morris in a transaction known as ¿The Holland Purchase.¿ Ellicott, operating as agent for the company, established its offices in Batavia, whose advantageous positioning at a crossroads on the Geneseo Road made it an ideal location for administering the sale of the lands surrounding it.

        Veduta della Piazza della Rotonda

      Paris - Hind 17This is the 5th state We are unable to determin a watermark due to the fact that the plate has been laid on paperThis print is from the First Paris edition of Veduta di Roma and was published between 1800-1807Giovanni Battista Piranesi was one of the leading figures in the development of the neoclassical style in the late 18th Century. As architect, archaeologist, artist, designer, collector, and antiquities dealer, he produced a series of etchings and engravings depicting the glories of ancient Rome. These fine prints served as source material for other architects and designers. He was born in Venice on the 4th October 1720. The son of a stone-mason, he was educated as an architect under his maternal uncle Matto Lucchesi and under Carlo Zucchi. In 1740 Piranesi left Venice for Rome, there he studied etching under Giuseppe Vasi. He appears to have had little success in these early years in Rome and as his father was unable to continue his allowance returned to Venice in 1744. He was soon, however, encouraged to return to Rome by Giuseppe Wagner, a successful engraver and publisher of Venice. This time he achieved success, and a constant series of works, illustrating architecture and antiquities, issued from his studio until his death in 1778. His output in etched plates is enormous (about 1000 numbers in all). While he achieved a work of magnitude in pictorial records of Roman monuments of antiquity and of the Renaissance, and gave immense archæological, antiquarian, and topographical value to this work, the artistic quality always predominates. He was fond of peopling his ruins with Callot-like figures, and \"like Callot makes great use of the swelling line\" (Hind). He had two sons and a daughter, all of whom helped him in his work and after his death carried on his publications in Rome and Paris. They were Francesco (born 1748 or 1756; died 1810), Pietro (who lived till after 1807) and Laura (born 1750). His position in Rome and in Europe after 1760 was a prominent one. He was well-known figure to the wealthy English visitors in Rome and was elected a Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries in 1757. Most of his life was passed in Rome, etching, writing, publishing, and directing a workshop in which the restoration and sale of antiques played a considerable part.He was famous for his poetic views of Rome and also his fantastic imaginary interiors. His skills, allied to his deep knowledge of archaeology, provided the substance for his Vedute (Views), a series of 135 etchings of ancient and contemporary Rome, published from 1745 onwards, which established the popular mental image of the city. Vasi.et Ornamenti Antichi was a collection of 110 etchings documenting large sculptural vases, together with other antiquities excavated (and in some cases created) in Italy in the 18th century. The prints were initially separately issued and sold by Piranesi over a period of several years and subsequently collected in two folio volumes, each with its own title page, in 1778. They illustrate a wide range of genuine antiquities, as well as Piranesi\'s own collections, from utilitarian objects such as cinerary urns, lamps, and sarcophagi to monumental vases. The plates in Vasi often included text by Piranesi with information about where the objects were discovered and their contemporary location, and the prints bore dedications to his patrons, colleagues, visitors and influential people. He believed absolutely in the supremacy of Roman over Greek architecture, an argument he expounded most forcefully in his Della magnificenza ed architettura dei Romani (On the Magnificence of Roman Architecture, 1761). his romanticized views and imaginary interiors had a profound effect on stage designers, painters of capricci such as Hubert Robert, and even writers: William Beckford, the author of the Gothic novel and Vathek . In the 20th century his imaginary interiors have been admired by the Surrealists . Reference: Ficacci plate 838, Image Size : 3 [Attributes: First Edition]

      . . Gumuchian 2663. - Die "Galerie Industrielle" gehört zur großen Zahl der gegen Ende des 18. Jahrhunderts aufgekommenen berufskundlichen Werken, deren Beliebtheit in Europa durch das ganze 19. Jahrhundert anhielt. Die Wurzeln dieser speziellen Gattung der Kinder- und Jugendliteratur liegen einerseits in den Idealen der Aufklärung, andererseits in der durch Comenius begründeten Tradition Lehrbücher mit einem hohen Bildanteil auszustatten. Die Bücher "sind weniger Anleitungen für zukünftige Handwerker und Berufstätige als eher Darstellungen für spätere Entscheidungsträger, die auch mit diesen Bereichen vertraut sein sollen. Intendiert ist zudem zumeist eine Aufwertung handwerklicher Arbeit im bürgerlichen Ansehen" (Klaus Ulrich Pech in Handbuch für Kinder- u. Jugenliteratur 1800-1850, Sp. 503 f.). Als Rahmenhandlung dient hier das Bedürfnis eines philantropisch veranlagten Herren, der seinen beiden fleissig studierenden Neffen die Welt der Gewerbe zeigen will. Er schickt sie systematisch zu von ihm ausgewählten Betrieben, Werkstätten etc. und vertieft dann in abendlichen Gesprächen das zuvor Gesehene. Insgesamt enthält das Werk 28 "Soirees", die jeweils untereinander verbundenen Gewerben gewidmet sind. Gezeigt werden soll hauptsächlich wie der Mensch sich die verschiedenen Naturprodukte von Erzeugnissen der Landwirtschaft bis hin zu mineralischen Rohstoffen nutzbar macht. Enthält Tafeln zu Baumwolle, Buchbinderei, Edelsteinbearbeitung, Eisenerz, Färberei, Fleisch/Milchprodukten/Küche, Gartenbau/Jagd/Fischfang, Getreide u. Brot, Glas, Hanf, Holz, Hutmacherei, Inneneinrichtung, Leder, Leinen, Münzprägung, Öl u. Seife, Papier, Weinbau, Salz, Schokolade, Schriftguss, Seide, Stahl, Steinbau, Tabak, Töpferei, Uhrmacher, Wachs u. Zuckerrohr. - S. 94/95 etwas verklebt; Titelblatt mit hinterlegtem Einriss. ** Bestellungen bis 14 Uhr versenden wir am selben Tag. - Schweizer Postkonto vorhanden. **

Brustbild mit Orden, leicht nach links, Gesicht fast en face, "Napoleon le Grand. Dedie a Mrs. les Generaux Bertrand Gourgaud, Montholon et ...",.

      . Kupferstich v. Badoureau n. David, um 1800, 39,5 x 31,3 (H) Blattgr. 53,6 x 40,4cm. Napoleon erwies sich als ein militärisches Talent. Vor allem die Feldzüge in Italien und in Ägypten machten ihn populär und zu einem politischen Hoffnungsträger. Dies ermöglichte ihm, durch den Staatsstreich vom 18. Brumaire die Macht in Frankreich zu übernehmen, die ihn letztendlich zum Kaiser der Franzosen werden ließ. Durch verschiedene Reformen, z. B. dem Code Civil, hat Napoleon die staatlichen Strukturen Frankreichs bis in die Gegenwart hinein geprägt. Außenpolitisch errang er zeitweise die Herrschaft über weite Teile Kontinentaleuropas. Der katastrophale Ausgang des Feldzugs gegen Russland führte zum Sturz Napoleons. Nach einer kurzen Phase der Verbannung auf Elba kehrte er für hundert Tage an die Macht zurück. In der Schlacht bei Waterloo wurde er endgültig besiegt und zuletzt bis zu seinem Lebensende auf die Insel St. Helena verbannt. Seltenes Portrait Napoleons. - Plattengr.: 47 x 35,3cm. 49,3 cm Blattgr.: 72,5 x 54,7 cm. - Blatt wurde fachgerecht restauriert.

        Flora Batava, afgebeeld door en van wegens J.C. Sepp en zoon; beschreven door Jan Kops.

      - Amsterdam, Leiden, Haarlem, s'Gravenhage, J.C. Sepp en Zoon, and others, (1800)-1920. Volumes 1-25 (of 28) & 1 index volume. 4to (295 x 240mm). With 1 handcoloured engraved title page and 2000 coloured plates, engraved and coloured by hand, lithographed and coloured by hand and chromolithographed. End 19th century uniform half calf, gilt and blind-stamped spines, marbled sides (some vols. early 20th century). A fine, almost complete set, of the most beautiful flora of the Netherlands. During a period of 134 years 461 parts were published. As this is a most unusual long period of time complete sets are of the greatest rarity.It is one of the great national floras and comparable in extent and span with the 'Flora Danica', the 'Flora Graeca' and a few others. The first 13 volumes were published by Sepp & Zoon, a firm which excercised the utmost care in producing colour-plate books of outstanding quality. The first 24 volumes have the plates handcoloured, the remaining volumes have chromolithographs. For the first 10 volumes Kops was the editor, to be followed by several other editors and publishers. The quality of the plates, especially of the earlier volumes, is excellent, and makes it one of the most attractive botanical illustrated works published in the Netherlands.The index volume covers vols. 1-14. The text is both in Dutch and French. A complete copy has 28 vols with 2240 plates. The work was issued in 8vo and 4to. The present copy is the precious 4to edition. The first volume has a list of 232 subscribers. Little did they know that it would take 134 years for the whole work to be completed, so that none of them was to see the last instalment. As publication took so long, it became a true monument of nineteenth-century book production, since it is extremely rare for so many developments in printing and illustration techniques to be reflected in one single work.Great Flower Books, p. 63; Nissen BBI 2247.

Edition originale rare de ce tableau très détaillé de l'économie grecque audébut du XIXe siècle.

C'est à son retour qu'il fit publier l'ouvrage condensant son expérience, et qui le consacra en quelque sorte spécialiste des questions commerciales. De fait, sa carrière ultérieure le conduisit à occuper des places de commissaire aux questions commerciales (Stockholm en 1800 - poste non rejoint ; Etats-Unis, de 1802 à 1810). Il retrouva le Levant à la Restauration, qui le nomma consul à Smyrne (1815), puis Inspecteur général des établissements français du Levant (1817-1819). Absent de Blackmer. Bel exemplaire.

"Contemporain de J.-B. Say qui defend, en meme temps que lui, les doctrines liberales, en puisant aux sources physiocratiques et smithiennes" (Gonnard, p. 374). J.-C. Perrot ('Hist. intellectuelle de l'eco. po., p. 458 et s.) consacre une longue notice a cet essai : "D'Hauterive adopte une vision systemique qui place en interdependance les domaines economiques, sociaux et politiques. Il ne s'agit pas d'un banal elargissement de perspective, mais d'une permutation epistemologique qui amorce un debat - toujours actuel - entre disciplines interpretatives et sciences explicatives (...). L'auteur abandonne le point de vue national au profit d'une perspective europeenne". (Kress, B.4197. Einaudi, 2859. INED, 2232. Stourm, p. 318).
