        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’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]

Made by A. Liernur after Paulus Potter. Alexandre Liernur (Dutch; 1769-1815) Student of several painters. He went to Rome in 1794 as a "pensionnaire" of the Dutch Prins Willem II. He returned early in 1796 because of the political situation in Italy. In the period 1801-1802 he was in Paris where he made watercolor drawings of paintings in the Louvre. Back in Holland he continued with watercolor, but as one of the first and few in the Netherlands he also mastered the aquatint techniques. This technique was introduced from England and it was a very difficult, expensive and time consuming technique. The aquatints he made after his own designs made him famous.

      Philadelphia: Re-printed pro bono publico, 1800. 54pp. Modern quarter calf and boards, gilt leather label. Minor toning. Very good plus. Untrimmed and unopened. Philadelphia edition, printed "for the public good," following the first edition of the same year printed in New York. The great betrayal, which may have cost Adams the election of 1800. Hamilton originally issued this work with the hope of giving Charles Cotesworth Pinckney a majority over Adams. Hamilton writes of Adams: "...He does not possess the talents adapted to the administration of this Government, and that there are great and intrinsic defects in his character which unfit him for the office of Chief Magistrate." "This and Adams' reply are probably the plainest talk ever indulged in, in print, between two great statesmen. It received many answers, from both Republicans and Federalists" - Ford. This edition was printed by William Duane, publisher of the pro-Republican newspaper, the AURORA. Very popular in its time, Hamilton's work was reprinted four times during the 1800 election.

        GRANT RICE FOREST SCENE .1800s. OIL PAINTING in ORIGINAL FRAME - IMPRESSIVE VF

      1800's 1800 - AN ENTICING FOREST SCENE IS FEATURED IN THIS GREAT PAINTING. The emphasis is on the foreground tree, which is awash in Fall colors. Although we do not know much about Grant Rice, we know that this is an appealing work of art (we believe - but cannot prove - that Grant is the artist based on the attached paper on the back of the frame). Our understanding is that Grant Rice was also a poet (although we have not been able to verify that). This outstanding work was purchased from an estate in the 1960s by our consignor, and has been kept carefully ever since. The original art sits within an original era frame which measures about 15" x 19", and looks excellent! CONDITION: this original looks quite nice. Probably drawn in the late 1800s. We grade the art itself VERY FINE, and the frame FINE / VERY FINE. The frame has some "crazing" and seems to us to have gold leaf (we are not certain of that, but the gold color of the frame is remarkable). It would look very nice on display, and represents an historic era in American Art History. PHOTOS: we are providing five images. The first photo does a good job of showing the entire framed picture. The second shows the notation on the back indicating that Grant Rice is the artist. The third shows the back of the frame. The other two pics (which may or may not be visible depending on where you see this listing) show a corner detail, and some small damage to the back of the frame (which we feel matters very little since it would not been seen if this picture were hung on a wall). This art is a showpiece, suitable for fine collections. SHIPPING COSTS: Our Canadian and International rates are just estimates, it might cost more. For those concerned about our shipping charges, please be advised that this great work of art can be picked up in our Tampa Florida warehouse for NO shipping charge. Condition: VF

        THE PROSPECT BEFORE US. VOLUME I.

      Richmond: Printed for the Author, and Sold by M. Jones, S. Pleasants, Jun. and J. Lyon, 1800. 184pp. Modern calf, gilt leather label. Light tanning. Very good. The passionate and extraordinarily rare anti-Federalist screed from the "scandalmonger" himself, James T. Callender, suppressed by the Federalists who convicted him for sedition for writing it. Callender was a notorious journalist and political pamphleteer during the Federal period, issuing savage attacks on George Washington, John Adams, Alexander Hamilton, and others. The present work was partially financed by Vice President Thomas Jefferson who was, along with James Madison, actively working against the president and his Federalist cohorts. Jefferson had been particularly impressed with Callender's attack on Hamilton, and wanted a similar work scrutinizing the Adams administration, especially as he was running against the incumbent president at the time. The pamphlet is an attack on the political corruption within the Federalist party and inside the Adams administration, with Callender focusing his ire on the president himself. He labels the president a "hoary headed incendiary," "a man who has deserted and reversed all principles," and describes the Adams administration as "one continued tempest of malignant passions. As President, he has never opened his lips, or lifted his pen without threatening and scolding; the grand object of his administration has been to exasperate the rage of contending parties to calumniate and destroy every man who differs from his opinions...." As a result of this pamphlet, Adams' and Hamilton's Federalist party used the new Sedition Act to prosecute Callender at the height of the 1800 election campaign, citing twenty passages from THE PROSPECT BEFORE US in the indictment (though never naming the book itself). After a frustrating and politically-charged trial stacked clearly against the defendant, presided over by Federalist judge Samuel Chase, who frequently interrupted the defense lawyers, and consisting of an all-Federalist jury, Callender was found guilty. He was fined $200 and sentenced to nine months in prison. Callender was the last and most famous target of the Sedition Act, and the only defendant prosecuted under the law in a southern state. After Jefferson's election the new President pardoned Callender, but refused the writer's request to receive a lucrative postmaster's appointment. Callender then switched sides, revenging himself by spilling the details of Jefferson and his mulatto mistress Sally Hemings. In 1803, while drunk, he drowned in a shallow sidewater of the James River. The shadowy circumstances of his death, combined with the many powerful enemies he had made, led to numerous Vince Foster-like conspiracy theories. The first part of THE PROSPECT BEFORE US was popular and welcome in Virginia at the time of publication, but roundly criticized and suppressed in Philadelphia and elsewhere. As a result, the work is extremely rare, and hardly ever encountered outside institutions. James Morton Smith, "Sedition in the Old Dominion: James T. Callender and THE PROSPECT BEFORE US" in THE JOURNAL OF SOUTHERN HISTORY, Vol. 20, No. 2 (May 1954), pp.157-82. HOWES C72. EVANS 37083. SHAW & SHOEMAKER 271. BRINLEY 4790. William Safire's novel SCANDALMONGER (2000) is a lively fictional treatment of Callender's career and a must-read for any enthusiast of the Federal era. REESE, FEDERAL HUNDRED 80.

      Canton ? c1800. - (393 x 355 mm) Mounted on old paper. Images of trades and daily life were a favourite subject matter of Chinese export art. Increasing trade with China during the 18th century made Westerners more curious about life in the East leading to a demand for pictures.

      Cf. Howgego, 1800-1850, P9, R27 & F21. A mid-19th-century oil painting depicting two ships (3-masted barks) in a rough sea amid dangerous rocky and icy cliffs, mountains and outcroppings. Pasted to the back is an old slip of paper with a note (the parts of the text in parentheses are lost, but have been filled in based on an earlier transcription): "The sailing ships ('Erebus' and 'Terror') passing through the Davis Straig(ht) in 1846 [the 6 later "corrected" to 7]. It was on this expedition that Sir John Franklin discovered the North West Passage, and in which he lost his life". In fact Franklin sailed these two ships through Davis Strait in 1845, passed on through Lancaster Sound in search of a Northwest Passage and spent the winter on Beechey Island. In 1846 he and his expedition made their way through (using the modern names) Peel Sound and Franklin Strait into McClintock Channel, where they got caught in the ice near King William Island. Most of the crew died there, including Franklin in 1847. A few made it on foot to the mainland but were unable to reach any outpost. The last died in 1848. Since no one who saw the ships in these waters survived, the anonymous artist who made the present painting appears to have turned to an 1847 painting of the same ships by John Wilson Carmichael in London, though he did not copy it. Carmichael had earlier made a drawing of an expedition in search of the Northwest Passage by William Edward Parry (who made three expeditions in the years 1819 to 1825, each with two ships), but in 1847 he used parts of his existing Arctic scene as models for the composition of a new painting showing an Antarctic scene of James Clark Ross's voyage with the ships Erebus and Terror in 1842: "'Erebus' and 'Terror' in the Antarctic". Carmichael's drawing and painting survive at the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich. The central ship in the present painting follows that in Carmichael's painting quite closely and the second ship more distantly. The rocks and ice are similar in general appearance and arrangement but quite different in detail.With some restorations along the edges of the painting and a small scuffmark near the foot toward the left, but generally in good condition.
