        Adele La Venitienne / Maîtresse de Teintoret

      Paris: Charles Bance & Aumont, 1800. A striking beautifully coloured engraving after the renowned 16th-century Venetian Mannerist Tintoretto. A representation of the Italian painter's enigmatic mistress, this plate is part of a series of three aquatints Debucourt completed after paintings by Tintoretto, Rubens, and Raphael depicting their respective mistresses. This print is a stunning example of the single plate colour printing technique used in France beginning in the 18th century. The effect is achieved by inking a single plate with several different colours by using a rag stump, a process known as à la poupée. The outcome achieved by this laborious method of inking has a wonderful painterly effect and creates a delicacy of image, which is charming to behold. Although a painter by training, Philibert-Louis Debucourt is primarily renowned as one of the most innovative colour printmakers of the eighteenth century. Born in 1781, he studied with Joseph Marie Vien at the French Academy. After several years of exhibiting his paintings at the Salon, he turned to printmaking in 1781. During the mid 1780s, he began experimenting with the complicated multiple-plate colour printing process, a technique that was refined and revolutionized by Jean-François Janinet. Debucourt found success with his colour intaglio prints of Parisian high society, and he quickly earned a reputation as a skilled and prolific engraver. The bulk of his prints, however, were based on paintings by other artists and completed after the turn of the century. Despite his intense focus on printmaking, he continued to exhibit his paintings alongside his engravings at the Salon throughout his life. Cf. Benezit, Dictionnaire des Peintres, Sculpteurs, Dessinateurs et Graveurs , vol. 4, p. 323; cf. Regency to Empire: French Printmaking 1715-1814 , p. 346; Fenaille, L'oeuvre gravé de P.-L. Debucourt (1755-1832) , pp. 257-8. Aquatint engraving printed in colour à la poupée on wove paper. Very good condition apart from some overall light soiling and minor foxing. Trimmed close to plate mark on all sides.

        A Bill Entitled, \"An Act for the Union of Great Britain and Ireland

      (London): W. Sleater Printer to the House of Lords., 1800. Folio. 31 pp, plus folding tables. This is an original copy of the notorious Act of Union of 1800, as printed for the House of Lords. It bears the ink signature \"Somerton\" and has notes in the same hand in the text. Lord Somerton was the Archbishop of Dublin, and was active in the debate in this act in the House of Lords. I presume this is his copy, especially since some of the annotations have to do with church matters. The text is stained and disbound, but complete and in good repair.

      Wien, Anton Doll. 1800.. 8°. Gest. Frontisp., 216 S. Broschürt, Buchblock geheftet, Rücken fehlt großteils, Heftung gelockert. Buchblock unbeschnitten, Blätter staubrandig, sonst fast weiß u. fleckenlos.. GV 155,418. Vgl. Wurzbach 55,13ff. (Ausg. Wien 1801) - W. (1754-1809), seit 1800 Professor für Philosophie u. Geschichte am k.k. Lyzeum in Linz, war als "... pädagogischer u. philosophischer Schriftsteller ungemein tätig", lt. Wurzbach war er "... der erste selbständige philosophische Schriftsteller in Österreich ... er schrieb leicht, faßlich und gut." Besonders hebt Wurzbach seine "Beiträge zur Thierseelenkunde" hervor "... welche eine scharfe Beobachtungsgabe verrathen und uns Einblicke in das Leben und die Fähigkeiten jener Wesen eröffnen, die ... doch am wenigsten beobachtet werden, so sehr auch sie Beobachtung verdienen". Wodurch W. auch als Vorläufer der Verhaltensforschung anzusehen ist.

        Ornemens de peinture et de sculpture, qui sont dans la Galerie d'Apollon, Au Chasteau du Louvre, Et Dans Le Grand Appartement du Roy au Palais des Tuilleries. Dessinéz et gravez par les Srs. Berain, Chauveau, et le Moine.

      [Paris: c1800]. - large folio. engraved title by G.I.B.Scotin after Bérain & 28 engraved plates drawn & engraved by Bérain, Chauveau & Le Moine. 19th century half morocco (extremities worn, spine with a few scars, paper lightly embrowned, most plates with some foxing - 12 significantly so, all plates mounted on stubs). The title is dated 1710 but this is a later issue on thick wove paper. The plates show the wall and ceiling ornaments of Galerie d'Apollon in the Louvre drawn and engraved by Bérain (11), and those for doors and wall paneling of Louis XIV's apartment in the Tuileries drawn and engraved by François Chauveau (13) and Jean Le Moine (4). Charles Le Brun, one of the twelve original members of the Académie de Peinture et Sculpture founded in 1648 and first painter to the King (1664) was in charge of the project, which was begun after a fire in 1661, when the space was restored and enlarged. "Le Brun's project for the Galerie d'Apollon is a triumph of mythological decoration, and one of his most powerful works. It also reveals the enduring influence of Poussin on Le Brun.The theme of Le Brun's decoration for the Galerie d'Apollon is Apollo, god of the sun, represented in the effects of light on the hours, months, seasons, elements, and hemispheres. Henry Jouin (1889) describes the magnificently worked out representation as a "poem to the aspects of nature." The greatest artists and sculptors of the time contributed to this decoration, under the direction of Le Brun. But despite the fact that work on the project extended over a period of twenty years, it was never completed. It was taken up again only in the nineteenth century by architect Félix Duban and painter Eugène Delacroix. Delacroix is responsible for the design of the center ceiling panel, which does not follow the original ideas of Le Brun." (Millard) Berlin Kat. 4037. Brunet I 1443. Millard 21.

        An Account of a Voyage in Search of La Pérouse Performed in the Years 1791, 1792, and 1793. under the Command of Rear-Admiral Bruni d'Entrecasteaux.

      London: For John Stockdale, 1800 - Quarto (272 × 211 mm) Contemporary green half calf on marbled boards, black morocco label, flat bands with small floral tools gilt. A little rubbed at the extremities, neat repair to split at head of upper joint , marbled paper skilfully renewed, some off-set from the frontispiece, light toning and the occasional spot of foxing, but overall a very good copy. Frontispiece and 44 other plates, large folding map. First edition in English, same year as the French, this in the favoured, and less common, single-volume quarto edition. Labillardière was the botanist and doctor on the d'Entrecasteaux Pérouse search expedition, and was entrusted with the task of writing the official account following the death of the commander from scurvy. "Although unsuccessful in the search for La Pérouse, the voyage was of considerable importance because of the scientific observations that were made and the surveys of the coasts of Tasmania, New Caledonia, the north coast of New Guinea, and the southwest coast of Australia. Labillardière's account of the Tongans is an excellent contribution to the ethnology of that people" (Hill) When the expedition reached Java, Labillardière's scientific collections were seized by the British, war having been declared on the Revolutionary French government, but after lobbying by Sir Joseph Banks were returned to him, enabling him to publish the original of the present work, and also to begin publication of Novae Hollandiae Plantarum Specimen (1804-07), the first general description of the flora of Australia.

        An original drawing with a Royal Navy warship firing her cannon out to sea, titled 'Pigeon Island from the Town of Gros Islet,' St. Lucia

      [St. Lucia 1800 - A fine early view recalling St. Lucia's turbulent past. The view includes a British ship-of-war in the foreground, with Pigeon Island behind, with Fort Rodney topping the smaller of the two peaks. The island was used as a look-out post to keep an eye on the French naval base on Martinique to the north. The image also includes two large ships in the background and these, combined with the fact that the ship in the foreground has just fired a broadside, may mean that this image was intended to act as a record of one of the many encounters that took place before Britain finally took control of St. Lucia in 1814. Pen, ink and wash drawing within an ink-ruled border, titled in the margin beneath in ink in a contemporary hand. Image size: 6 5/8 x 9 7/8 inches; sheet size: 7 5/8 x 10 5/8 inches.

        Histoire de Russie [History of Russia]: Atlas Volume.

      Imprimerie de Guilleminet, Pierre-Francois Fauche, Paris, Hamburg & Brunswick 1800 - Paris, Hamburg & Brunswick: l¿Imprimerie de Guilleminet, Pierre-Francois Fauche, An VIII [1800]. Nouvelle Edition. Quarto. 16 pp. With a folding engraved outline hand colored map and sixteen engraved plates (many folding). Handsome period brown gilt tooled quarter calf with red gilt lettered morocco labels and marbled boards. Occasional very mild foxing, otherwise a very good copy. Atlas to the third edition of Histoire de Russie (earlier editions were published without separate atlas). The folding map drawn by A. Brue shows European Russia and the Caucasus. The plates depict views, temples and buildings mostly of the region of Volga, Ural Mountains and Kirghiz steppes. Among them are the ruins of the ancient city of Bolghar and of the mysterious Buddhist monastery Ablaikit in vicinity of Ust-Kamenogorsk in modern Kazakhstan. Ablaikit was built by a Kalmyk khan in 1654-1656 and was destroyed in 1670. At the beginning of the 18th century there were still sculptures and pictures in the monastery¿s temple. Manuscripts found there in 1720 were sent to Saint Petersburg. The plates include a general view, topographical plan and interior view of the temple of Ablaikit. Costumes of Kasimov Tatars, Samoyeds, Ostiaks, Mordvinians, Kalmyks, Tshouvach, Mongols and Kirghiz are also included. Pierre Charles Levesque was a French historian, philosopher and moralist, initially engraver. He lived in Russia for seven years working as a teacher in the Cadet Corps and the Imperial Academy of Arts in Saint Petersburg. His "Histoire de Russie" was recognized as the most significant research on Russian history written by a foreign scientist in the 18th century. It was widely popular in Russia before Nikolai Karamzin published his famous work, and kept its scientific significance until the end of the 19th century. Levesque was the first author who based his work mostly on Russian sources and historical works. For his achievements Levesque was accepted as a member of Académie des Inscriptions et Belles-letters (1789) and taught history in Collège de France (Nouvelle Biographie Générale, vol. 31, 38-39).

        Bowles's New One-sheet Map of the Independent States of Virginia, Maryland, Delaware, Pensylvania [sic.], New Jersey. New York, Connecticut, Rhode Island. &c. comprehending also the habitations & hunting countries of the confederate Indians

      printed for the Proprietors Bowles & Carver, London 1800 - A rare late issue of an important map by `the leading American geographer of his day' (Stephenson & McKee) This 'landmark map'(op.cit.) was first published in 1755 with the title A general Map of the Middle British Colonies in America. It was available either as a separate publication or bound into Evans' Geographical, Historical, Political. Philosophical and Mechanical Essays. The First Containing an Analysis of a General Map of the Middle British Colonies in America (Philadelphia: Benjamin Franklin and David Hall, 1755). `Evans was the leading American geographer of his day. He incorporated into his map a wealth of geographical information not previously available on other maps, especially for the Ohio country. Extending from Quebec to Virginia and from the Atlantic coast to the Ohio River, his map was published in numerous authorized and pirated editions throughout the remainder of the eighteenth century' (op.cit.). The Bowles piracy was one of the longest lived versions: John Bowles first issued a version of Evans' map in about 1760 and continued to do so for the rest of the century with alterations to the imprint and occasional changes of title. The present example shows the Bowles piracy in its final form, and appears to be considerably rarer than a number of the earlier issues: no copies of this issue are listed as having sold at auction in the past thirty years.

The text of the first edition was issued simultaneously in octavo and quarto formats, both intended to be accompanied by the folio volume of plates. "The quarto volumes seem to have been printed so that they could be uniformly bound with the quarto La Pérouse volumes. The fine atlas volume is much prized as it is scarce and often found lacking from the set" (Hill). "No news had been received for three years respecting the ships Boussole and Astrolabe, commanded by M. de la Pérouse, when, early in the year 1791, the attention of the Constituent Assembly was called to the fate of that navigator and his companions. On February 9, 1791 a decree was passed on the subject, which directed (inter alia) that the King be petitioned to give orders for the fitting out of one or more ships, equipped with men of science, naturalists and draughtsmen, with the two-fold mission of searching for M. de la Pérouse and of making inquiries relative to the sciences and to commerce.Proceeding via the Cape of Good Hope to Tasmania, extensive investigations of its coastline were made. New Caledonia, the Solomon Islands, the Admiralty Islands, Tonga, New Britain and other groups were visited, but although most searching inquiries were made, no trace of the missing navigator was found.The expedition made several important contributions to geographical knowledge, and the investigations of the naturalists into the productions of countries visited were of special value" (Ferguson 307). Labillardière was one of the naturalists accompanying the expedition; his is the first published account of this very important Pacific voyage. Ferguson, Australia, 307 and 682. Hill II, pp. 469-470.

        The True History of the Conquest of Mexico, By Captain Bernal Diaz del Castillo, one of the Conquerors. Written in the year 1568

      Printed for J Wright by John Dean, London 1800 - viii+514 pages with frontispiece map. Quarto (10 1/2" x 8 3/4") housed in a custom slipcase. Translated by Maurice Keatinge. First English edition. Bernal Dïaz del Castillo was a conquistador, who wrote an eyewitness account of the conquest of Mexico by the Spaniards under Hernan Cortes, himself serving as a rodelero under Cortes. Born in Medina del Campo (Spain), he came from a family of little wealth and he himself had received only a minimal education. He sailed to Cuba in 1514 to make his fortune, but after two years found few opportunities there. Much of the native population of the island had already been killed by epidemics and forced labor, and in 1517 an expedition was sent to the smaller Caribbean islands to find alternative sources of labor. Dïaz joined this group, under the command of Francisco Hernandez de Cordoba. It was a difficult venture, and although they discovered the Yucatan coast, by the time the expedition returned to Cuba they were in disastrous shape. Nevertheless, Dïaz returned to the coast of Yucatan the following year, on an expedition led by Juan de Grijalva, with the intent of exploring the newly discovered lands. Upon returning to Cuba, he enlisted in a new expedition, this one led by Hernan Cortes. In this third effort, Dïaz took part in one of the legendary military campaigns of history, bringing an end to the Aztec empire in Mesoamerica. During this campaign, Dïaz spoke frequently with his companions in arms about their experiences, collecting them into a coherent narration. The book that resulted from this was Historia verdadera de la conquista de la Nueva Espana (English: The True History of the Conquest of New Spain. In it he describes many of the 119 battles in which he claims to have participated, culminating in the fall of the Aztec Empire in 1521. As a reward for his service, Dïaz was appointed governor of Santiago de los Caballeros, present-day Antigua Guatemala. He began writing his history in 1568, almost fifty years after the events described, in response to an alternative history written by Cortes's chaplain, who had not actually participated in the campaign. He called his book the Verdadera Historia (True History), in response to the claims made in the earlier work. Dïaz died in 1585, without seeing his book published. A manuscript was found in a Madrid library in 1632 and finally published, providing an eye-witness account of the events, often told from the perspective of a common soldier. Today it is one of the most important sources in understanding the campaign that led to the collapse of the Aztec Empire and the Spanish conquest of Mexico. Condition: Spine renewed with new period spine label and original boards which the corners and edges are heavily rubbed, some foxing to early pages. Frontispiece map repaired. Custom made red slipcase with Japanese toggles and leather spine label in gilt lettering else about a very good copy in a near fine case. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        The Blue Passion Flower

      London 1800 - Dr. Robert John Thornton (1768-1837) hand-colored engraving 22.25" x 17.5", The Blue Passion Flower, is from his book titled The Temple of Flora, or Garden of Nature, Picturesque Botanical Plates of the new Illustration of the Sexual System of Linnaeus. Thornton began to indulge his lifelong love for botany in 1799. Determined to surpass the Germans in scholarship and the French in printing artistry, he planned a book of philosophic and literary distinction, illustrated by some of the best painters working in Britain. Within the book there are five frontispieces, portraits and allegorical compositions with thirty-two plates of flowers. Thornton made up each set with twenty-nine or thirty-two in varied arrangements. The lengthy text was primarily written by Thornton himself, where artists were commissioned to design and paint the images. The majority of designs were done by Peter Henderson and Philip Reinagle. The intaglio plates - a varied combination of mezzotint, aquatint, line and stipple engraving, finished with watercolor -were executed by Bartolozzi and other English masters. The title notwithstanding, few of the plates are of scientific interest. It is the forceful stylization of flowers, together with their historical, allegorical and/or fanciful backgrounds (prescribed by Thornton) that place the Temple of Flora among the greatest botanical books of all time. Dr. Thornton, who gave his life and his fortune to this work, created one of England's monuments to Romantic idealism. With only slight foxing and staining in the margin, this piece is in good condition richly colored with fine detailing and shading.
