        Veduta della probatica piscina nella città di Gerusalemme. (View of the Pool of Bethesda in Jerusalem.)

      c. 1800 - 22 x 30.5 cm. Watercolour and pastel on paper, mounted on cardboard. Framed. Attractive original watercolour which we can safely attribute to Mayer (fl. 1755-1803), the celebrated Italian orientalist who travelled extensively in the Middle East and published popular, nicely illustrated works on Egypt and the Levant. In fine condition. The Pool of Bethesda is located in the Muslim Quarter of Jerusalem, on the path of the Beth Zeta Valley. The name Bethesda is derived from Hebrew - 'Beit Hesed' meaning 'House of Mercy'. At the time of the Second Jewish Temple the pool was used as a water reservoir and a healing pool.

        Ceiling frescoes depicting Aurora and Apollo. A pair.

      circa 1800 - A pair of watercolours on vellum, after the baroque ceiling frescoes by Guido Reni in the Casino dell'Aurora of the Palazzo Pallavicini-Rospigliosi, one central panel of Aurora, the other of Aurora leading Apollo in his chariot, flanked by celestial nymphs and putti respectively; both surrounded by delicate polychrome panels of grotteschi, gryphons and putti, 51 x 30 cm approx., framed and glazed, overall dimensions 68 x 38 cm., evidence of a little neat restoration to borders. Studies by Bigatti after Guido Reni (1575-1642). Following the success of Reni's frescos for the Farnese Palace, his mythological subjects were much in demand and influenced many later artists. The present examples are copied from ceiling frescos composed around 1614 for what is considered to be his masterpiece, the Casino dell'Aurora at the Palazzo Pallavicini-Rospigliosi, the Borghese palace in Rome. They were commissioned by its first occupant, the famed art collector Cardinal Scipione Borghese. Aurora now had left her saffron bed, And beams of early light the heav'ns o'erspread, When, from a tow'r, the queen, with wakeful eyes, Saw day point upward from the rosy skies. (Virgil). The watercolours show Apollo in his Chariot preceded by Dawn (Aurora) bringing light to the world; and Aurora in her chariot. Aurora renews herself every morning and flies across the sky, announcing the arrival of the sun. Aurora was associated with sensuality and she appears most often in poetry with one of her mortal lovers. A myth taken from the Greek by Roman poets tells that one of her lovers was the prince of Troy, Tithonus. Tithonus was a mortal, and would therefore age and die. Wanting to be with her lover for all eternity, Aurora asked Jupiter to grant immortality to Tithonus. Jupiter granted her wish, but she failed to ask for eternal youth to accompany his immortality, and he became forever old. Aurora turned him into a grasshopper. Aurora's siblings were her brother, Sol (Sun) and sister, Luna (Moon).

If ever a poet understood the character of his nation, he was Robert Burns. The language he was most fluent in wasn't so much Scots or English – it was the language of the heart. All too human in his personal life, he carried that humanity over onto the page. Nothing was too small or too large to escape his notice, from a mouse in the mud to God in his heavens. A poet for all seasons, Burns speaks to all. [Attributes: First Edition]

A unique album of historical importance, entirely in manuscript, in a signed Russian presentation binding. Of exceptional dimensions and in fresh condition, from the library of Tsar Alexander II. On 10 March 1800, the very year when the album was executed, the Artillery and Engineering Gentry Cadet Corps (Artilleriyskiy i Inzhenerniy Shliakhetskiy Korpus) was renamed into the Second Cadet Corps by the order of Tsar Paul I. It is therefore highly probable, considering its importance and quality, that the present work was presented by the cadets to the Tsar. It contains 95 charts of artillery arms, mainly canons and related equipment, skillfully executed in watercolours and signed by the Cadets, each page bearing a different signature. The arms drawn in detail are apparently of the standard of the year 1797 developed for the Gatchina artillery troops, which were under the direct command of Paul I. This emphasizes the historical importance of the present drawings in the military history of the Russian Empire, since "even the State Archive of the Military and Historical Museum of Artillery in St. Petersburg doesn't have charts of the arms of the 1797 standard" (PhD thesis by Yurkevich E.I., 2003, p.22). Our research could also bring to light another, similar album, kept in the Manuscripts department of the National Library of Russia (No139). Their version however differs from ours not only by the quantity of drawings (124 in the NLR), but also by the date - one year later, 1801 - and very interestingly by the Tsar's monogram on the title page: the NLR album shows the initials of the new Tsar, Alexander I, just enthroned after the assassination of his father Paul in March 1801. Perhaps the gift to Paul needed to be updated and adapted to the new ruler? _______________________________ ?????????? ?????? ?????????????? ???????????? ????????, ?????????? ??????????? ?? ???? ???????, ? ???????????? ?????????? ????????? ????? ??????? ?????? ? ?????????? ???????????; ?????????? ?? ??????? ?????????? ??????????

        An Inquiry into the Causes and Effects of the Variolae Vaccinae (.) a Disease discovered in some of the Western counties of England, particularly Gloucestershire, and known by the name of the Cow Pox. [WITH] Report of the Royal College of Physicians of London, on Vaccination.

      London For the author by Sampson Low & 1808 1800 - Quarto, I. 3 parts in 1., viii, 182, [ii] pp., four hand-coloured engraved plates; tear to upper margin B3, a large uncut copy. II., 13pp., and printed wrapper sheet, one line slightly trimmed. Together in later 19th century half calf. I. Second edition of Jenner's classic work on smallpox vaccination (first published 1798), the first to include the Further observations (first 1799) and the Continuation (also issued separately in 1800). The discovery and application of vaccination with cow-pox lymph to prevent smallpox "was one of the greatest practical advances in preventative medicine" (PMM). II. Only edition, rare and important. Although Jenner had petitioned Parliament in 1802 for recognition of his services, as a result of which he was granted £10,000, the government and medical community were still divided on the virtues of vaccination. As a consequence, in 1806, Parliament instructed the Royal College of Physicians to examine the evidence on vaccination. Their findings were published in the Report as a result of which Jenner was awarded a further £20,000 and the National Vaccine Establishment was founded. "Although the profession and Parliament had been practically committed to vaccination at the time of Jenner's petition (1802), this was the first instance of the establishment and endowment of the practice . " (W. S. Tebb). The Report thus not only bestowed on Jenner full recognition for his contribution to preventative medicine, but initiated the establishment of vaccination as a national policy in Great Britain. I.

      - [Japan ca. 1800-1810]. Hand scroll, silk brocade cloth, with ribbon tie,ivory clip,painted on fine hand-made crushed mica flecked Washi paper, giving a sparkling effect, very long: 27.5 x 6m.48 cm.,very clean, solid 21 color paintings. RARE! *** *** *** . . . YAMAKAWA'S TRIBUTE PAINTING TO . . . THE FAMOUS MING DYNASTY CHINESE PAINTER . . . CH'IU YING [QIU YING] [1494?-1522] . . . A STUNNING GOUACHE COLOR PAINTED CHINESE SCROLL . * There is a signature and four red cinnabar Hanko [seals or chops] with "Shuuho" [Shuho] at the beginning of the scroll. . There is no indication of the artist's last name. There are two likely possibilities: . a. The work was painted by Yamakawa Shuuhoh, and bears three of his seals. . b. The work was the property of Yamakawa Shuuhoh, therefore it bears his seals. . We do know Yamakawa admired beautiful ladies and painted them as well as created several stunning color woodblock printed examples. . * ARTIST LISTING IN ROBERTS: There are two artists listed in Roberts with the same Kanji first name "Shuuhoh:" top of p.154, is Ishida Shuuhoh, flourished 19th century, born in Omi province, pupil of Shirai Kayo. . Yamakawa Shuuhoh [1898-1944] cited on p.195, as Yamakawa Yoshio, using the "Go" [studio name] Shuuhoh. He was born in Kyoto, pupil of Kaburagi Kiyokata and Ikegami Shuuho. He showed with the Teiten. . Both artists used the identical Kanji for their first names i.e. Shuuhoh. Their dates differ just a bit. After careful research we could not find another single artist with the exact Kanji name, or plausible dates. . It is more than likely the work of Yamakawa because there are so many of his Hanko, by the signature. By and large collectors did not put their Hanko near the artist's name, but in other places or at the end of a scroll. Hanko in the beginning were mostly limited to the artist and his alternate Hanko. The presence of one unread Hanko to the left of all others may just be a previous collector's Hanko. . Of course Yamakawa's several Hanko can also mean Yamakawa bought this for his private collection and reference, pressing his Hanko in ownership provenance This is the least likely scenario because it is signed "Shuuhoh" which is his name ! It is more than likely the work was done sometime after circa 1918 when he was twenty years old or older. . *** We do know Yamakawa's appreciation and admiration of Ch'iu Ying is understandable. It would be entirely appropriate for artists to keep and refer to earlier Chinese and Japanese master's works, or even show respect by painting a 'tribute' inspired by an earlier or famous artist of the classic Ming and other dynasties. . The skill of the brush strokes, coloring and delicacy of the lines, the composition follows the Chinese style of earlier dynasties. . The work was expertly executed by a Japanese artist. In scene 18, there is a small note in Katakana, on the screen near the bronze gong, indicating the softness of the color. . *** ORIGINAL WORK BY THE CHINESE MASTER CH'IU YING [QIU YING]: . BRUSHED NAMES: Per the brushed title slip on the exterior of the scroll, and the first brushed name listed at the beginning of the scroll, we find the Hanzi [Chinese characters] for "CH'IU YING" [QIU YING] the name of the original artist which inspired this Japanese artist to produce his tribute of Qiu Ying. . Continuing with the same brush and writing style below is also the brush-written name at the beginning of the scroll: "Shuuhoo Sei," followed by "Dai Jushi go" ["Number 40"]. The significance is moot, but can be a numbering system of chronological 'tributes' Yamakawa made. Please see images posted to our website: spine.jpg and title.jpg for more details on the signature and Hanko. . *** THE HANKO [Seals or chops]: There are a total of four red cinnabar Hanko found at the beginning of this scroll. There are two small square red cinnabar Hanko at the left of the name "Shuuhoo." . Below them, is yet another and larger round Hanko, with two characters stam

        Rare Paul Revere-Signed "Rising States Lodge" Masonic Certificate

      Boston, MA 1800 - Printed Document Signed. Boston, Mass., September 3, 1800. 1 p., Countersigned by John Bray, Enoch Baldwin and Joseph Clark (secretary). On vellum, with original red silk ribbon attached. 16 x 13, 31 1/2 x 21 1/2 in. Revolutionary Boston hero Paul Revere was a founding member of the Rising States Lodge of Massachusetts Freemasons. This Masonic initiation certificate for the Lodge, elaborately engraved by B. Hurd, ("Brother B. Hurd del."), depicts an elaborate arched pediment supported by two columns, large Masonic symbols (crossed keys, sun, moon and stars with comet, crossed quills) and, in the center portion, an open coffin, drafting implements and two candleholders resting on a large altar. To the side are cherubs on pedestals, one holding an open book, the other a mallet. Historical BackgroundDocuments relating to Paul Revere's Masonry and his involvement with the Rising States Lodge are very rare. Here, the Revolutionary patriot and fellow officers of the Lodge certify that Moses Ward "has been regularly initiated in the Third Degree of Masonry" within the Rising States Lodge of Boston.On September 9, 1760, 25-year-old Paul Revere was initiated as an apprentice in St. Andrew's Lodge in Boston. Revere had probably been introduced to Freemasonry through Richard Gridley, a Mason and Revere's commander during the Crown Point Expedition of 1756. Revere advanced rapidly to the rank of Master Mason, and, by 1769, Arch Mason (a rank also held by fellow patriot Joseph Warren). As a skilled gold- and silversmith, Revere received several commissions to engrave certificates and to produce seals and medals for the Lodge. (The engravings are illustrated in C. Brigham, Paul Revere's Engravings, pp. 186-196.)In 1783, Revere and other Masons founded the Rising States Lodge. He remained a principal member for many years and from 1794-97 served as Grand Master of the Massachusetts Grand Lodge, the most prominent and prestigious position in the state. After 1800, the demands of Revere's growing foundry business apparently absorbed most of his time; he held no further Masonic offices and only occasionally attended meetings. (E. J. Steblicki, Paul Revere and Freemasonry, 1985, p.64) The Rising States Lodge was dissolved in 1812.Paul Revere (1734-1818) was an American silversmith, engraver, and Boston patriot most famous for alerting the Massachusetts militia to the approach of British forces before the battles of Lexington and Concord. Born in Boston's North End, Revere was prosperous and prominent, and took considerable risk when organizing the colonial resistance and intelligence networks. His almost entirely fictitious depiction of the Boston Massacre helped galvanize colonial resistance to British rule. He was a leader of the Boston Tea Party and served on the Boston Committee of Public Safety. He later served as a Massachusetts militia officer. Following the war, Revere returned to his silversmith trade and used the profits from his expanding business to finance his work in iron casting, bronze bell and cannon casting, and the forging of copper bolts and spikes. He became the first American to roll copper into sheets for use as sheathing on naval vessels.

        Traite medico-philosophique sur l'alienation mentale ou la manie par Ph. Pinel, ... Avec Figures représentant des formes de crâne ou des portraits d'Aliénés.

      Paris, Chez Richard, Caile et Ravier, Libraires, rue Haute-Feuille, No. 11, An IX (1800-01), 8, (I-V), VI-LVI, 318 pp., 1 Tabelle., 2 Taf., feiner Pappband mit Rvg. ungewöhnlich breites und frisches Exemplar. First Edition of one of the most important medical classics and one of the most valuable texts in the history of psychiatry, written in the opening year of the new century. It is both a postcript to the eighteenth and a preface to the nineteenth century. Pinel wrote this treatise on the basis of his experience in the Bicêtre. His medical theories and classifications are very methodical and clear and they contain some original ideas, but their importance pales in comparison with his work of hospital reform and reorganization by which a new tradition was established and a new perspective opened for practical and research psychiatry it is this achievement which always come to mind when the name of Philippe Pinel is mentioned. On May 24, 1798, at the risk of his own life and liberty, he struck off the chains of the insane at the Bicêtre, placing them in hospitals under lenient physicians, and doing away with the abuses of drugging and blood-letting to which they were subjected.Garrison & MortonNo. 4922 Heirs of Hippocrates 1070?

        Commentaries on the Laws of England, in Four Books: The Thirteenth Edition, with the Last Corrections of the Author, and with Notes and Additions [Blackstone's]

      Complete in four volumes. This edition is only the second edition to include the author's last corrections, along with contributions by Edward Christian (these first appeared in the 12th edition). "A series of lectures delivered by the English jurist Sir William Blackstone at Oxford in 1753 and published as Commentaries on the Laws of England in four volumes between 1765 and 1769, which systematized and clarified the amorphous body of English Law. The Commentaries are the first attempt to state the entire corpus of the Common Law. They were acclaimed internationally and their precepts were applied to the study and Practice of Law in England and the United States. They exerted a tremendous influence on the American bar, both because of their intrinsic value and because they were the only treatises readily available during that period of U.S. history. The Commentaries were the primary reference tools for lawyers and judges until the nineteenth century because the appellate courts in America did not regularly submit their opinions for publication in bound volumes. Although there were court reporters, their records of decisions were incomplete and sporadic;and few attorneys could afford a comprehensive library. Since the common law of England was incorporated into the legal systems of the colonies, Blackstone's summaries rendered the legal system accessible to the entire educated class of the colonies. Dissatisfaction with the common-law restrictions on Freedom of Speech and the press was an important aspect of the burgeoning resentment of English rule; and the knowledge and intellectual stimulation provided by Blackstone thereby played a role in causing the American Revolution. Blackstone's books, which were periodically updated by American editors, constituted a major source of law for approximately fifty years after the American Revolution. The Commentaries are viewed as the most comprehensive summary of the entire body of English law ever compiled by a single author. Their clarity, sophistication, and formality have caused them to be highly regarded. While studying to be a lawyer, Abraham Lincoln reportedly read Blackstone by candlelight. Blackstone did have detractors, however, most notably Thomas Jefferson and Jeremy Bentham, the English Utilitarian philosopher. Jefferson believed that Blackstone and his followers were "Tories" and that he was a negative influence on America in the sense that more attention needed to be devoted to "whiggism" or "republicanism." Bentham criticized Blackstone for his perception that English law needed no improvement and for his imprecise analysis of the historical and social factors underlying systems of justice. Although the Commentaries might seem antiquated by current standards, Blackstone's work represented a tremendous advance in the study of law and played a significant role in the development of the American legal system."

First edition of the German translation by Johann Friedrich Wilhelm Herbst of George Vancouver's famous account of his exploration of the northwest coast of America and east coast of Asia. "This voyage became one of the most important made in the interests of geographical knowledge" (Hill). George Vancouver (1757-1798), who had participated in the second and third voyages of James Cook, was commissioned by the English monarch to continue the exploration of the northwest coast of America. He was made commander of a grand-scale expedition to reclaim Britain's rights resulting from the Nootka Convention, at Nootka Sound, to thoroughly examine the coast south of the 60th parallel in order to find a possible passage to the Atlantic. Vancouver put an end to the delusion that the subarctic seas in the direction of Greenland could be reached from Nootka Sound or any of the inlets in its vicinity and his description of the Port of San Francisco and the coasts of California in Spanish hands is most interesting. "This work ranks with the voyages of Cook and La Pérouse among the most important of the 18th and 19th centuries" (Cox). In very good condition, only slightly browned. Bindings rubbed along the extremities, only minor damage to the foot of the spine of the second volume, otherwise very good.

First edition of the German translation of a travelogue and zoological work, originally written in Latin by the Swedish zoologist and botanist Friedrich Hasselquist (1722-1752) and published posthumously by the celebrated naturalist Carl Linnaeus (1707-1778). "In 1749 Hasselquist set off on a botanical expedition to the Middle East. Sailing from Stockholm ... he arrived at Izmir (= Smyrna, in Turkey) where he spent the winter of 1749-1750 exploring the hinterland. In March 1750 he took a trip into the interior of Turkey, and afterwards sailed for Egypt ... he proceeded through Palestine and Syria, visited Cyprus, Rhodes and Chios, and then returned to Izmir" (Howgego). The work can be divided into two parts. The first part consists of a chronological journal, followed by 14 letters from Hasselquist to his tutor Linnaeus. The second part contains a zoological, botanical and mineralogical description of the area, starting with the four-footed animals, followed by birds, amphibians, fish, insects, plants and stones. Especially his descriptions of fishes in the Nile are very valuable. The work concludes with the materia medica of the Middle East. Hasselquist was already sick when he wrote and died during his travels in 1752, near Izmir. In 1757 the work was posthumously published by Linnaeus, entitled Iter Palaestinum, "who described it as being full of fresh, genuine and precise observations: "So admirable a travel journal has never before appeared..."." (Blackmer).With an inscription on flyleaf from E. Atkinsons(?), dated Jerusalem 1858, and slip with manuscript inscription pasted down on flyleaf from John R. Ruth. Slightly browned, title-page foxed, a few notations and underlining in pencil, and a small waterstain on page 259. Binding rubbed along the extremities, sides rubbed. Overall a very good copy.

        Mapa topografico de la Provincia de Saña en el Obispado de Truxillo en el Reino del Peru

      Handsomely drawn manuscript map of the Provincia de Saña, next to Trujillo, located in the north-western coast of Peru between the Piura to today's La Libertad region. Several towns are identified; there is a fleur-de-lis in the Mar del Sur (Pacific Ocean) that orients north to the left, as well as a few islands, Ysla de Lobos de Tierra, Ysla de Lobos de Fuera, and Farallones de Malabrigo off the coastline. The cartouche is found on the upper left corner. The map resembles greatly that of Bishop Martinez Compañon. The Ecclesiastical division of territory is what is being taken into account for the map. Saña was an important city in the colonial administration, opulent enough to draw privateer Edward Davis' attention in 1686, when his forces attacked and sacked the city. It was the flooding (1720) however, which caused real damage to the city. The map is unsigned and undated, there is no reference that allows a proper dating or attribution.

        Primo viaggio intorno al Globo Terracqueo ossia ragguaglio della navigazione alle Indie Orientali per la via d´Occidente

      First edition, an important Americana, although published almost a full 300 years too late, this is the first time this relation of the voyage of exploration performed by Pigafetta alongside Magellan is printed, from the manuscript codex of the Biblioteca Ambrosiana of Milan. The enterprise took from 1519 until 1522; by the time it ended it was the first circumnavigation ever performed, and thus one of the most significant voyages of the century of discovery. The expedition is known to us in four manuscript codex's, all of which are in French, except for one, in Italian, preserved at the Biblioteca Ambrosiana; this edition is the only one that is made after the Italian manuscript, which is likely the original one, considering Pigafetta was an Italian native speaker, and that he was historiographer of the expedition. The importance of this edition, thus, cannot be overstated, for both the direct relation to the manuscript, and for the illustration, which reproduces for the first time the maps made in the expedition, in bright spectacular color; "had it not been for the pen of Pigafetta, knowledge of Magellan's circumnavigation would be far more limited" (Penrose, Travel and discovery in the Renaissance, p. 305). Pigafetta (c.1492 - 1531) was a Venetian explorer and scholar, member of a wealthy family of Vicenza, he was learned in astronomy, cartography and geography; whilst in Spain accompanying Nuncio Francesco Chieregati, he knew of the planned expedition of the Portuguese sailor Ferdinand Magellan, and decided to join, serving as Magellan´s assistant and in the capacity of historian and cartographer. In Mactan (Philippines) Pigafetta was injured and Magellan was killed; however he was able to make the journey back home, along with other 17 survivors -out of a crew of 240- under the command of Sebastian El Cano. The illustration is composed of 2 folding engraved maps, one showing the route of the voyage and the other the Philippines and the Moluccas, 4 hand-colored woodcut maps, which reproduce the original maps made during the voyage, and 9 engraved headpieces and 8 woodcut vignettes. Provenance: faint inscription to title page; on front pastedown the inscription "XV - CL - 30", Borba pp. 667-8. Hill p. 235. Palau 225742. Sabin 62804.
