        Voyage pittoresque de Basle a Bienne par les Vallons de Mottiers-Grand

      1802. BIRMANN, Pierre. Voyage pittoresque de Basle a Bienne par les Vallons de Mottiers-Grandval. Les planches dessinées par Pierre Birmann, accompagnés d'un texte par l'auteur de la course de Basle a Bienne. 37 pp. Illustrated with 12 (of 36) hand-coloured aquatint plates and 1 full-page map. Oblong-folio, 320 x 434 mm, bound in contemporary Swiss half-calf, gilt ornamental tooling on spine, marbled paper over boards. Basel: Decker, 1802. |~||~||~||~| Complete first part of this very sought-after travel book, with the large plates possessing exceptional hand-colouring instead of the usual sepia. The Voyage pittoresque of Pierre Birmann represents one of the key early nineteenth-century view books of Switzerland, this one centered on the Jura canton in northwest Switzerland. As stated in the introduction, Birman, published this work in response to the dire European mood at the turn of the nineteenth century dominated by Napoleon's aggression. He intended his views of the Jura's picturesque highlands crossed by river valleys as an antidote/escape from the horrors of war, and to represent an opposition to the current popular art of the day that focused on battle scenes, sieges, desolation and death. The pastoral, bucolic villages, mountain streams, surrounding forests, and cathedral-like rock formations represented a landscape unspoiled by mankind. Pierre Birmann (1758-1844) 'began his career as a portrait painter in Basle and then moved to Berne, where he took up landscape painting. In 1781 Birmann made the grand tour and ended up staying in Rome for ten years working for Louis Ducros and for Giovanni Volpato. While in Rome he painted landscapes in watercolour and drew in bistre, using a soft brush and making little use of the pen. He became a member of Goethe's circle in Rome, and then fell under the influence of Claude Lorraine. In 1792 he returned to Basle where he eventually become an art dealer. He later opened his own publishing house, and in 1802 he printed his best-known work, a series of aquatints of Voyage pittoresque de Basle à Bienne par les vallons de Mottiers-Grandval' (cf. Oxford Art Online). The text for Voyage pittoresque was written by Philippe S. Bridel, (see: Barbier, V, 1379). Extremely rare in contemporary colouring, this is the first part of the "voyage" from Basle to Delémont, comprising 12 splendid hand-coloured plates engraved by Franz Hegi. The Birmann views include those of: Münchenstein, Dornach, Angenstein, Grelligen, Lauffen and Liesberg. Very good copy in contemporary binding with large margins and beautiful, fresh colouring. Lonchamp 453. Wäber, Bibliographie der Schweizerischen Landeskunde III, 126. Appenzeller 105-116. Not in Abbey. See: Quérard, I, 342. Brunet, V, 1378-1379.

        Ängelske Sid-Captenens, federmera Predikantens Johan Newtons synnerligen märkwärdiga Rese- och Leswernes-Beskrifning... Pastoren Doctor T. Haweis

      Stockholm: Carl Fr. Marquard, 1802. Small octavo, wear to title-page and final text leaf, unnumbered final contents page torn with loss and with rather basic paper repair; contemporary half calf lending-library binding with original borrowing rules pasted to front paste-down, joints starting but firm, a worn but not unattractive copy. Very uncommon: the first Swedish edition of this series of letters by the English clergyman and former slave-ship owner, John Newton, best known as the author of the hymn "Amazing Grace". The letters are written to Thomas Haweis, co-founder of the London Missionary Society and the editor of the 1799 account of the Duff voyage to Tahiti.After a difficult career as a young man at sea, Newton experienced a conversion in 1748, although for more than a decade he continued his association with slave-ships. It was not until 1764 that Thomas Haweis managed to get Newton the living for Olney in Buckinghamshire, the same year that this work was first published in England (An Authentic Narrative of some Remarkable and Interesting Particulars... Communicated in a series of letters, to the Reverend Mr. Haweis). This Swedish translation is based on a German-language edition of 1791. Becoming a prominent abolitionist, in 1788 Newton published Thoughts Upon the Slave Trade, a horrific account of the Middle Passage.The main text of this work is in the form of a series of "Brefwet" or letters, the first signed 12 January 1763, and the last 2 February 1763. Throughout, there are numerous quotations from the Bible, usually printed in bold, and references to the main locations associated with the slave trade, including notes on Sierra Leone, Antigua and the West Indies.

It is here printed in paragraphs, and divided into sections, though the chapter-and-verse numbers are retained, and 'metre' is distinguished from 'Prose'...

        The Works in Natural History.

      Printed for J. White, London 1802 - Two volumes, octavo, frontispiece in each volume, one handcoloured and folding, one folding plate; contemporary ownership inscription on each of the titles, contemporary marbled sheep, rebacked at an early date, retaining the original labels. The Rev. Gilbert White (1720-1793), best known for his Natural History of Selborne - a classic of both natural history and English literature - was in close contact with the leading naturalists of the day: Sir Joseph Banks, Thomas Pennant, Daniel Solander, Forster, William Curtis, and Sir Ashton Lever. He followed Cook and Banks' voyage in the Endeavour closely, and later wrote of an ironic twist: "A gent. came the other day, and said he understood that there was a Mr. White who had lately published two books, a good one and a bad one; the bad one was concerning Botany Bay, the better respecting some parish"

        Autograph manuscript signed letter from Judge Thomas Millidge to William Meredith

      1802 - RARE MANUSCRIPT FROM A FAMOUS NOVA SCOTIA LOYALIST 8" x 13" autograph letter signed, one and one-quarter pages, Nova Scotia, June 25, 1802, to William Meredith. "?I do not understand to who, the 600,000 Sterling is to be paid if to those Creditors whose Debtors were Solvent at the commencement of the Revolution? it appears His Majesty is to authorize certain persons to receive the same? If I must come to attend the prosecutions I had rather give all up than risque myself in Jersey considering the vile Treatment I received when in Morris County am apprehensive murder would be the consequence should I come carry on prosecutions not do I see any reason for my personal attendance?." Fold with a split at the bottom and a 1/2" hole in 2nd page not affecting any text. Overall very good condition otherwise. Thomas Millidge (1735-1816) Surveyor, judge, political figure in Nova Scotia. Millidge joined the British army at the end of 1776, becoming a major in the New Jersey Volunteers. His property in New Jersey was seized and sold at auction; he was later paid some compensation for his losses. In August 1778 the New Jersey authorities initiated legal proceedings against him, and in December his estate was advertised for public auction. Millidge was later awarded £1,131 of his claim for £2,777 6s. by the loyalist claims commissioners, plus a £50 yearly pension for the loss of his official income. At the end of the Revolution, he was granted land in the Annapolis Valley area in Nova Scotia.

        Landschaft mit Stromschnelle, im Vordergrund ein Zeichner auf einem Felsen sitzend.

      - Feder in Grau und Braun, braun laviert, über Bleistift, auf cremefarbenem Velin. 29,7:41,7 cm. Wahrscheinlich gehört diese Zeichnung zur „Voyage pittoresque de Basle à Bienne par les Vallons de Mottiers-Grandval" im Rahmen der Birstal-Reisebeschreibungen, ab 1802 im Eigenverlag erschienen, die im Katalog zur Baseler Ausstellung 1998 in mehrere Kategorien eingeteilt wird. Unsere Zeichnung gehört zur Kategorie 5: Darstellung kleiner und kleinster Landschaftsausschnitte mit kleinen Wasserfällen, Felsblöcken, Einzelbäumen, Baumgruppen, Kräutern, Astwerk, Wurzeln. „Der Maler wirft seinen Blick nicht von oben auf die darzustellenden Gegenstände, er betrachtet sie von der Seite oder von unten her. Sehr häufig setzt er sich direkt ans Flussbett. Diese Tafeln sind eine der Besonderheiten der Birmann’schen Voyage Pittoresque. Ihre Motive sind fast ausnahmslos nur von Birmann, vor oder nach ihm von keinem andern Maler, dargestellt worden. Dadurch erhält das Werk einen unverwechselbaren Charakter" (zitiert aus: Ausst. Katalog: Peter und Samuel Birmann. Künstler, Sammler, Händler, Stifter, Basel 1998, S. 49). Birmann war Schüler von J.R. Huber d.J. (gest. 1779) in Basel und von J.J. Kaufmann (1707-1782) in Pruntrut. 1775 arbeitete er bei dem Verleger A. Wagner in Bern. Für seine künstlerische Karriere entscheidend war jedoch die Gesellenzeit bei J.L. Aberli (1723-1786) in Bern, die seine Hinwendung zur Vedute brachte. Die ebenfalls sehr wichtigen Jahre 1781-1790 verbrachte er in Rom, dort arbeitete er kurze Zeit für den Waadtländer Landschaftsmaler L. Ducros (1748-1810). Anschließend wurde er Vorsteher in der Werkstatt von G. Volpato (1733-1803). Durch diese Tätigkeit wurde seine Auseinandersetzung mit dem neoklassizistischen Konzept der Italienvedute von J.Ph. Hackert (1737-1807) gefördert und er verkehrte im Kreis Goethes. Nach seiner Rückkehr nach Basel 1790 gründete er eine sehr erfolgreiche Kunstverlagsanstalt, die vor allem Darstellungen Schweizer Landschaften produzierte.

        De la Suisse avant la Révolution et pendant la Révolution. Des bases essentielles à son gouvernement futur et à son indépendance.

      - Lausanne, chez les Cit. Hignou et Comp., 1802. In-8, cartonnage marbré à la Bradel, titre doré, tranches mouchetées (rel. Laurenchet), (4), 152 p. Edition originale et unique. Originaire de Morges, Jean-Jacques Cart (1748-1813) devint avocat, s’illustra comme patriote vaudois et dut s’exiler en France. Proche des Girondins, il effectua une mission aux Etats-Unis (1793) et il revint en Suisse au milieu de 1798, la Révolution accomplie. Jusqu’en 1802, comme sénateur, il prit une position farouchement unitaire, combattant toute idée fédéraliste. C’est cette position qu’il défend et justifie dans cet ouvrage dont le retentissement fut important. Il dresse un tableau de l’histoire politique de la Suisse, fait l’analyse des troubles dans le pays de Vaud qui l’avaient obligé à quitter son pays en 1791, relate les principaux événements de la Révolution et commente la situation politique et constitutionnelle en soumettant des propositions de réformes. Sur l’auteur, cf. Etienne Hofmann in Dictionnaire historique de la Suisse en ligne. (Martin & Walter, I, 6287. A. de Montet, 'Dictionnaire des Genevois et des Vaudois', I, 128-129).

      REBUIN (4 copies?); cf. Schnurrer 425 (1802 ed.). Second Spanish edition of a classic 12th-century Arabic treatise on agriculture, known in Arabic as Kitab al-filaha and first published in a parallel Arabic and Spanish edition by the Imprenta Real in Madrid in 1802.

The last few chapters discuss animal husbandry, including horses and animal diseases. It was the most comprehensive Arabic treatise on the subject, incorporating large parts of the most important earlier works on the subject, most notably the work of Ibn Wafid. Zakariya also made use of classical Greek sources.Each volume with the bookplate of Pedro Jorba Valls. Slightly browned and with two or three leaves with minor marginal defects, but still in good condition. Bindings very good. A comprehensive practical guide to agriculture, originally written in Arabic ca. 1185.

        Gladiolus Watsonius/Glayeul a fleurs de Watsonie [Watson's Geichzunge]

      Imprimerie de Didot jeune, Paris 1802 - Stipple engraving, printed in colour and finished by hand, engraved by Langlois. Pierre-Joseph Redoute was one of the world's great flower painters. Born into a family that had been painters for at least two generations, Redoute went to Paris in 1782 with his brother where they worked as scene painters for the Theatre italien. Redoute painted flowers in his spare time. The search for subjects led him to the Jardin du Roi and eventually Gerard van Spaendonck who made him an assistant. While at the Jardin du Roi, Redoute came to know Charles-Louis L'Heritier, an amateur botanist and writer of independent means. He gave Redoute a full time job as an illustrator, instructing him in plant anatomy. Redoute's understanding of plants contributed greatly to the clarity of his depictions. But it was Redoute's work in stipple engraving and colour printing that was to be of the greatest importance. Stippling and the application of two or three colour inks to one plate were engraving innovations that Redoute brought to French printmaking, and these were brought to perfection in Les Liliacees from which this work comes. Les Liliacees is one of two Redoute masterworks, the other being Les Roses . These works demonstrate the appropriateness of the accolade "Raphael of Flowers", for one is constantly impressed by the exquisite compositional sense and clarity of vision. More than with any other painter, one sees in Redoute's flowers living, breathing beings at their most beautiful moment. Cf. Nissen BBI 1597; cf. Great Flower Books (1990), p 128; cf. Dunthorne p 231; cf. Stafleu & Cowan TL2 8747; cf. MacPhaeil, Redouteana , 10.

Expose des temperatures, dans lequel on traite, par aphorismes, des divers Ètats de l'atmosphere, et des influences de l'air et des pays sur l'homme, les animaux et les plantes [cover title]. 3 large printed charts (671 x 495 mm.) folded to large 4to size and bound together. Versailles: Ph.-D. Pierres; Paris: Desenne . . . , 1802. Magenta paste paper boards, printed label on front cover, light rubbing & wear. Minor foxing, a few light stains, tear in front free endpaper. Very good copy, with the author's presentation inscription on the front endpaper: "A l'illustre Professeur Monsieur Fabroni de la part de l'Auteur." The recipient was most likely Italian physicist Giovanni Valentino Mattia Fabbroni (1752-1822); see DSB. First Edition. Chavassieu-d'Audebert's charts present a thorough analysis in tabular form of the effects of temperature, atmospheric conditions and terrain on humans, animals and plants. The first chart displays the effects of temperature and humidity on health: for example, rainy weather was said to promote chronic fevers, epileptic attacks and paralysis in humans, and blight in crops. The second chart organizes temperature and climate information by month and season, describing effects on agriculture and health of various types of years (hot/dry, cold/wet, cold/dry, etc.). The third chart presents the phases of the moon and how they affect health, the effects of climate and terrain on native human, animal and plant populations, and a breakdown of the human species by geographical type.
