        Dr. Solander" Portrait Silhouette

      before, 1800.. Well preserved portrait silhouette in ink on oval cream card measuring 80 x 105 mm., inscribed 'Dr. Solander', mounted on small sheet of blue tinted laid paper with portion of unrelated decorative calligraphy to the rear, framed. Attractive contemporary portrait silhouette, a scarce and most unusual memento of Daniel Solander (1733-1782), student of Linnaeus, companion of Sir Joseph Banks aboard the first voyage of Captain Cook and prominent member of the London scientific elite. Silhouettes were a popular Georgian pastime, and this example is a rare survival.After extended study with the famous Swedish naturalist Carl Linnaeus, Solander arrived in England in 1759 to promote the revolutionary new system of classification. In this role he was remarkably successful, and within four years was appointed to the British Museum, to rearrange the natural history collection. The following year he was elected to the Royal Society.Solander developed a long-lasting friendship with Sir Joseph Banks, who asked him to join the voyage of the Endeavour in 1768, as one of his team of naturalists. Between them, Banks and Solander collected over 1400 plant species which were new to science, including many from the east coast of Australia. As a mark of esteem, Captain Cook named one of the headlands of Botany Bay "Point Solander" (nowadays Cape Solander) in his honour. Upon return to England, Solander was a lion of the London intellectual and scientific elite, and won the coveted assignment of Keeper of Printed Books at the British Museum. He also acted as Banks' librarian at Kew, and was responsible for naming many of the new plant specimens sent to the Royal Botanic Gardens within the novel Linnaean taxonomy.

In: Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society of London. 90 (1800), part II, pp. 403-431, 1 plate. Bound with: HERSCHEL, William - 1. Investigation of the Powers of the prismatic Colours to heat and illuminate Objects. - 2. Experiments on the Refrangibility of the invisible Rays of the Sun. - 3.

A nice copy of one of the most important volumes of this famous journal ever published. ---- VOLTA paper: Horblit 37b; Dibner 60; PMM 255; Sparrow 193; Norman 2164. - "THE FIRST ANNOUNCEMENT OF THE VOLTAIC 'PILE, OR ELECTRIC BATTERY" (Horblit). Volta's invention of the electric battery (the 'voltaic pile') was composed of pairs of silver and zinc disks separated by cardboard soaked in saline or acid solution. It was a breakthrough in physics, and led to the development of electrotechnology. "The voltaic pile revolutionized the theory and practice of electricity, so that within one hundred years of Volta's invention more progress was made than in the two thousand four hundred years between the tentative experiences of Thales and the publication of Volta's letter addressed to Sir Joseph Banks, President of the Royal Society" (PMM). The chemical properties immediately inspired the electrolyzing experiments and led to William Nicholson's decomposition of water and Davy's discovery of the elements sodium and potassium. It inspired studies of the physical properties of the electric current which led to the laws of Ohm, Oersted and Faraday, and the dawn of electrotechnology. "With this new force, water was decomposed, metal was electro-deposited, the electro-magnet was created and the electrical age was begun" (Dibner). ---- HERSCHEL papers: PMM 254; Sparrow 99; Norman 1059A. - FIRST APPEARANCES of Herschel's three important papers containing his investigations of the rays of the solar spectrum to determine which were responsible for heat production. Through these experiments he discovered the infra-red rays..

        An Epitome of the Natural History of the Insects of India and the Islands in the Indian Seas: Comprising upwards of two hundred figures and descriptions of the most singular and beautiful species, selected chiefly from those recently discovered and which have not appeared in the works of any preceding author

      London: Printed for the Author, by T. Bensley, 1800, First edition.. Some edge wear to the calf binding, gilt rules on spine a little indistinct in places, slight discolorations to the margins of the front and rear endpapers, light age-toning to a few plates, otherwise the text and fine hand-colored plates are bright and clean; a very good copy.. Pp. (i), 2, (68), 57 fine hand-colored copper-engraved plates, (2, index). Contemporary brown calf, covers with gilt border decorations, black morocco spine label that is gilt-lettered, 4to. As in most of Donovan's works, the colors are brilliantly applied and are often heightened with silver, gold and/or gum Arabic - the colors are laid done so thickly that often one cannot see the copper-engraving underneath. It is interesting to note that Donovan never traveled to India but obtained the insect specimens illustrated and discussed in this work from various English subjects who had spent numerous years in India. Old signature of Fe. Bouds on the front endpaper, likely the first owner of the book.

        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: circa 1800]. 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. 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.

        [Album of exceptional watercolours of members of the Chinese court and of various tradesmen and occupations]

      [Canton: circa 1800]. Large 4to. (15 x 12 1/2 inches). 141 watercolours, on thin paper, nearly all captioned in ink in Chinese in the lower right corner, each tipped to a sheet of wove paper. (A few repaired tears). Mid- nineteenth century citron half morocco over marbled paper covered boards, spine with raised bands in six compartments, lettered in gilt in the second compartment, the others with a repeat decoration in gilt, marbled edges. An extraordinary album of early Chinese export watercolours of the highest quality. Beginning in the late 18th century, centred on the treaty port of Canton, there existed a thriving trade in ethnographical watercolours executed by local Chinese artists and sold to the western merchants and travellers. The best known result of this trade is William Mason's Costume of China, first published in London in 1800, which is illustrated with 60 hand-coloured aquatints adapted from a series of original watercolours by Pu-Qua of Canton. It was common for the local artists, including Pu-Qua, to work from a set series of models. The present album includes a number of compositions that are from the same set of models as those used by Pu-Qua, but they include more detail and more of the trade-associated paraphernalia than are shown in the images as published in Mason's work. This suggests that they were not copied from Mason but were after another more detailed source, or were unique compositions by the artist based on a similar series of models. Importantly, these watercolours are of a uniformly higher quality than usually encountered and represent not only a wide-array of occupations but also members of the highest echelon of Chinese society. The detailing on the costumes worn by these members of the royal court is breathtaking, with copious use of gilt. Later collections of Chinese export watercolors were routinely executed on less expensive pith paper, whereas the present watercolours are on high quality tissue and are larger in size than those typically encountered. The album represents an earlier, more prestigious style of export watercolor paintings specifically meant for wealthy Europeans. These are Chinese watercolors of the highest quality, designed and executed to the highest standards. The album was once owned by Annie Pearson, Viscountess Cowdray (1881-1931), Steward of Colchester and wife of Lord Weetman Dickinson Pearson, 1st Viscount Cowdray. Cf. Crossman, The China Trade (Princeton: 1972); cf. Clunas, Chinese Export Watercolours (London: 1984).

Elizabeth Sutton died unmarried; perhaps she and the Miss Sutton of Charterhouse-square were one and the same, she having removed to Rowde by the time of the marriage?

        Nouvelle Carte Geographique et Historique del' Italie? la Savoje.. Le Piemont les Republiques Cisalpine, et Ligurienes

      Questa rarissima carta appartiene ad progetto di atlante, mai portato a compimento, della così denominata Società Calcografia, una semplice operazione commerciale tra i due editori leader del mercato veneto del XVIII secolo, Antonio Zatta e Giuseppe Antonio Remondini. Il termine Società Calcografica viene da noi dedotto dalla carta del mondo presente in questa raccolta, che nel cartiglio in basso reca l?iscrizione in lingua francese ?à Venise Chez la Societè Chalcographique 1799?. Come detto il progetto non venne mai portato a compimento; nessun atlante contenente queste mappe, con indice e frontespizio, è infatti noto alle bibliografie. E? probabile pertanto che le carte venissero vendute singolarmente o in piccole raccolte personalizzate. Le mappe inserite nella raccolta derivano in parte da lastre di Paolo e Francesco Santini, usate da Remondini nel ?Atlas Universelle? del 1782/4 ed in parte da lastre edite da Antonio Zatta per il ?Nuovo Atlante? pubblicato nel 1796. Le mappe del Santini sono abilmente arricchite, tramite un sistema di piccole lastre mascherate che sono chiaramente visibili sulle mappe per il segno calcografico, da grandi cartigli nel classico stile dello Zatta, incisi dai suoi stretti collaboratori Pasquali, Zuliani e Pitteri. I cartigli spesso contengono le descrizioni storiche, e le mappe furono probabilmente realizzate per illustrare i notevoli cambiamenti geografici che subì la penisola durante il periodo napoleonico. Datate tra il 1795 ed il 1805 sono principalmente dedicate ad illustrare la penisola, sebbene esistano carte di molte regioni europee e dei continenti. La recente bibliografia Terre di Langobardia ne descrive alcune raffiguranti la Repubblica Cisalpina, descrivendole come parte del ?Atlas très Nouveau? del solo Remondini, edito a partire dal 1800. La nostra opinione è che i due editori collaborarono in questo progetto almeno fino alla morte di Antonio Zatta (1804), e che il progetto di un atlante completo non fu mai portato a termine anche per la morte di Giuseppe Antonio Remondini (1811). Personalmente sono a conoscenza di 61 carte di questo progetto. Incisione in rame, finemente colorata da mano coeva, in ottimo stato di conservazione. This very rare map belongs to a never finished project for the atlas of the so called Società Calcografia, a simple commercial trade realized by the two main Venetian publishers of the XVIII century, Antonio Zatta and Giuseppe Antonio Remondini. The term Società Calcografica has been deduced from the map of the world, which is part of the collection and bears in the lower cartouche the French writing ?à Venise Chez la Societè Chalcographique 1799?. As already stated, the project was never finished for no atlas containing these maps has ever been listed in any bibliography. Very likely, then, the maps have been sold individually, or maybe as part of smaller, custom collections. The maps of the collection derive from Paolo and Francesco Santini?s plates, used by Remondini in his 1782/4 ?Atlas Universelle?, and from the plates of Antonio Zatta?s ?Nuovo Atlante?, published in 1796. Santini?s maps have been beautifully enriched, using the system of small, masked plates which can be perceived through the platemarks on the paper, with great cartouches according to the classical style of Zatta and have been probably engraved by the members of his staff, Pasquali, Zuliani and Pitteri. The cartouches bear very often historical descriptions and maybe the maps have been realized to depict the great geographic changes of the peninsula during the Napoleonic period. The modern bibliography Terre di Langobardia describes some of the maps depicting the Repubblica Cisalpina, presenting them as part of Remondini?s ?Atlas très Nouveau?, which was printed starting from 1800. In our opinion, the two publishers worked together to the realization of the project until Antonio Zatta died (1804), and the complete atlas was never finished because Giuseppe Antonio Remondini also died in 1811. I personally know 61 maps which were part of the project. Copper engraving, fine hand color, in excellent condition. Venezia Venice 600 500

        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. Stafleu & Cowan II, 3874 (giving a very detailed collation and description); See also J. Baert, Jan Kops pioneer van Hollands landbouw, 1943.

        Oiseaux Dorés ou à Reflets Métalliques. Histoire Naturelle et Générale des Colibris, Oiseaux-Mouches, Jacamars et Promerops/ Histoire Naturelle et Générale des Grimpéraux et des Oiseaux de Paradis.

      Paris, AN XI- (1800-) 1802. 2 volumes. Large folio (500 x 320mm). With 190 (1 double-page) colour-printed engraved plates by Audebert, many heightened with gold, printed by Langlois. Contemporary red half morocco, richly gilt ornamented spines in 7 compartments. A beautifully bound and very clean copy, of one of two hundred copies in folio with the captions printed in gold. "Its plates, heightened with gold, and so finished that they are little less than hand-illuminated engravings, make this one of the most beautiful books of its era... It is the gold reflections of the plumage that render the book unique and wonderful" (Fine Bird Books). Napoleon initiated a series of magnificent natural history publications that would vie with those undertaken to the order of Louis XIV, such as the present book together with Levaillant's superb ornithological monographs as well as the works by Redouté.

The general title of the work is actually taken from the half-titles, each volume treating several genera and having its own title page.

        Programma inaugurale in quo peculiarem differentialia investigandi rationem ex theoria functionum deducit.Helmstadt: J. H. Kühlin, 1788.

      With Gauss's autograph signature and two geometrical diagrams on front endpaper, and a 12-line mathematical proof in his hand on rear endpaper. Gauss's own personal copy of the inaugural dissertation of Johann Friedrich Pfaff, who supervised Gauss's doctoral thesis and was a close personal friend. This is an important Gauss manuscript, signed and dated 1800 by him, and with a mathematical calculation in his hand relating to orbital mechanics, performed at a time when Gauss was deeply involved in the calculation of the orbit of the minor planet Ceres (see below). "In 1801 the creativity of the previous years was reflected in two extraordinary achievements, the <i>Disquisitiones arithmeticae</i> and the calculation of the orbit of the newly discovered planet Ceres" (DSB).<br/><br/> Gauss studied at the Brunswick Collegium Carolinum from 1792 to 1795, and then at the University of Göttingen from 1795 to 1798 (where he formed an intimate friendship with Wolfgang Bolyai), supported throughout by a stipend from the Duke of Brunswick. He returned to his parents in Brunswick on 28 September 1798, where he continued to work alone and without access to a good library. The situation changed with a visit to nearby Helmstedt in October: "I have been in Helmstedt and found a very good reception with Pfaff as well as with the custodian of the library. Pfaff came up to my expectations. He shows the unmistakable sign of the genius, of not leaving a matter until he has dug it out as far as possible" (Gauss to Wolfgang Bolyai, 29 November 1798). Pfaff became the supervisor of Gauss's doctoral thesis, <i>Demonstratio nova theorematis, omnem functionem algebraicam rationalem integram unius vaiabilis in factores reales primi vel secundi gradus resolvi posse</i>, which provided the first rigorous proof of the fundamental theorem of algebra. A doctorate from the University of Helmstedt was conferred upon him on 16 July 1799. <br/><br/> "About the middle of December 1799, Gauss returned to Helmstedt again in order to use its library. He was cordially received by the librarian Bruns, as well as by the professor of mathematics Johann Friedrich Pfaff (1765-1825), whose acquaintance Gauss had already made during his stay in Helmstedt in October, 1798. Gauss rented a room in Pfaff's home and furnished it himself, but studied so strenuously and incessantly that the others in the house saw him for only a few hours in the evening. He and Pfaff would then take walks "to the spring and to Harpke." The topics of conversation were usually mathematical in nature" (Dunnington, p. 35). In a letter of 16 December 1799 to Bolyai, Gauss wrote: "I am staying here at Professor Pfaff's whom I esteem as an excellent geometer as well as a good man and my warm friend; a man of an innocent and childlike character, without any of the violent emotions which so dishonor a man and are so widespread among scholars." Gauss returned to Brunswick the following spring, evidently taking with him the present copy of Pfaff's dissertation. <br/><br/> The discovery of Ceres on New Year's Day 1801 by Joseph Piazzi was reported in the June issue of <i>Monatliche Correspondenz zur Beföde rderung Erd- und Himmelskunde</i>. The astronomers of Europe raced to observe the new planet for themselves, but without success. Piazzi's detailed observations were finally published in the September issue of <i>Monatliche Correspondenz</i>, which reached Gauss in Brunswick. He immediately began working on the determination of the orbit, temporarily putting aside his mathematical researches. He solved the problem some time in November 1801. The following January, Olbers rediscovered the planet, its position agreeing exactly with Gauss's predicted orbit. "The discovery of the planet Ceres introduced Gauss to the world as a theoretical astronomer of the highest order... It was Piazzi's discovery which gave Gauss the opportunity of revealing, in most impressive form, his remarkable mathematical superiority over all his contemporaries" (Dunnington, pp. 55-6). <br/><br/> The mathematical calculations performed by Gauss at the rear of the present volume are difficult to interpret precisely - they were intended only for Gauss himself so naturally detailed explanations were unnecessary. They are titled <i>Determinatur curva per aequationem inter radios vectores...,</i>" the determination of curves by equations given in polar coordinates (in modern terminology). Moreover, the calculations bear a close resemblance to some of those eventually published in his <i>Theoria motus corporum coelestium</i> (1809), the mature expression of his work on the calculation of planetary orbits. Together with the dating of the manuscript, the conclusion is inescapable that we have here an early expression of Gauss's thoughts on the determination of orbits, the topic which first brought his genius to the attention of the wider scientific world. <br/><br/> As the son of a family serving the government of Württemberg, Pfaff went to the Hohe Karlsschule in Stuttgart at the age of nine, completing his legal studies there in the fall of 1785. On the basis of mathematical knowledge that he acquired by himself, Pfaff soon progressed to reading Euler's <i>Introductio in analysin infinitorum</i>. In the fall of 1785, at the urging of Karl Eugen, the duke of Wurttemberg, he began a journey to increase his scientific knowledge. He remained at the University of Göttingen for about two years, studying mathematics with A. G. Kaestner and physics with G. C. Lichtenberg. In the summer of 1787 he travelled to Berlin, in order to improve his skill in practical astronomy with J. E. Bode. Through the recommendation of Lichtenberg, in 1788 Pfaff was appointed full professor of mathematics at the University of Helmstedt as a replacement for Georg Simon Klügel, who had been called to Halle. New professors at Helmstedt traditionally presented an inaugural essay, printed in the present volume. It deals with the differentials of functions which satisfy functional equations, which provides a new approach to the calculus of logarithmic, exponential and trigonometric functions. <br/><br/> Pfaff presented his most important mathematical achievement, the theory of Pfaffian forms, in <i>Methodus generalis, aequationes differentiarum partialium, necnon aequationes differentiales vulgares, utrasque primi ordinis, inter quotcunque variabiles, complete integrandi</i>, which he submitted to the <i>Abhandlungen der Königlichen Akademie der Wissenschaften Berlin</i> (1814-1815, pp. 76-136). Despite receiving an exceedingly favourable review by Gauss, its importance was not appreciated until 1827, when it appeared with a paper by Carl Gustav Jacob Jacobi, <i>Über Pfaff's Methode, eine gewohnliche lineare Differentialgleichung zwischen 2 n Variabeln durch ein System von n Gleichungen zu integrieren</i> (<i>Journal für die reine und angewandte Mathematik</i>, Bd. 2, pp. 347-357). Pfaff's <i>Methodus</i> constituted the starting point of a basic theory of integration of partial differential equations which, through the work of Jacobi, Sophus Lie and Elie Cartan, has developed into the modern theory of exterior differential systems. <br/><br/> The present volume is from the personal library of Gauss. It was sold as a duplicate in 1951 by the Göttingen State and University Library, at which time it passed into private hands. <br/><br/> VD18 10608788.

        Adele La Venitienne / Maîtresse de Teintoret

      Paris: Charles Bance & Aumont, circa 1800. 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. 18 x 13 1/8 inches. 18 3/4 x 13 3/4 inches. 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.

        Mademoiselle Lundens / Maîtresse de Rubens

      Paris: Charles Bance & Aumont, circa 1800. Aquatint engraving printed in colour à la poupée on wove paper. Very good condition apart from some overall light soiling, minor foxing, and a skillfully repaired small loss in the left margin. Trimmed close to plate mark on all sides. 18 1/4 x 13 1/4 inches. 18 3/4 x 13 7/8 inches. A striking beautifully coloured engraving after the renowned 17th-century Flemish painter Peter Paul Rubens. A representation of Rubens' sister-in-law, Susanna Lunden, this plate is part of a series of three aquatints Debucourt completed after paintings by Tintoretto, Rubens, and Raphael. Susan Lunden was the daughter of the Antwerp silk merchant Daniel Fourment and the sister of Rubens' second wife Helena. Originally titled 'Le Chapeau de Paille' [The Straw Hat], the painting after which this plate is engraved dates from around 1622-25 and may have been a marriage portrait intended for Lunden's second husband Arnold. 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.

        Fregatten Freya, Commanderet af Capitaine Krabbe i Attaque med 4 engelsek Fregatter ved Indgangen til Canalen i Nordsøen den 25. Julij 1800.

      Mezzotint af C. Kuntz efter forlæg af Terkild E. Lønning. København, c. 1800-1801. Lysmål: 40,8x64 cm. Arkmål: 50x70 cm. I nyere brun træramme med guldkant. Lidt skjolder, især langs margenerne.. Dekorativt og ganske monumentalt stik af søkampen i Den Engelske Kanal 25. juli 1800 mellem den danske fregat Freya (med 40 kanoner) og 4 britiske fregatter. Freya eskortede en af de handelskonvojer, der bragte velstand til København i Den florissante Periode. Kampen udløstes, da den danske kaptajn Krabbe nægtede englænderne adgang til at visitere skibene, og trods sej dansk modstand blev både fregat og konvoj opbragt. Den lille batalje vakte umådelig opsigt og begejstring i København og gav farlig næring til en aktivistisk og udfordrende dansk politik over for Storbritannien, der til gengæld reagerede ved at sende Nelson og Parker med en soild eskadre til København det følgende forår. Kaptajn Krabbes hårdnakkede kamp blev således ouverturen til Slaget på Rheden
