Fatto salvo il tempo e giudicare le cose essenzialmente naturalistica, trovando e portando i fatti a sua conoscenza, questa storia della donna, non solo nel corso della storia, ma nelle nazioni (le hotentots sono spesso studiati) è affascinante in più di un modo, soprattutto perché l'autore non cade mai in un naturalismo puro, ma ancora in discussione il rapporto di un fatto a tutti i componenti del femminile, come componenti sociali, abbigliamento, culturale e tradizionale e fisica. Il trattato di salute formando il terzo volume è un fisiologico trattato Moreau analizzare le conseguenze di questo comportamento sulle caratteristiche fisiologia, sensibilità e femminili. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Edition originale, illustrée de 11 planches dont 7 dépliantes (anatomie, sexe hermaphrodite, hottentote...).

Mors supérieur fendu en tête du tome I, et inférieur en queue et tête. Un manque en tête du tome III. Assez bon exemplaire, frais. Sans préjugé pour l'époque, et jugeant les choses essentiellement en naturaliste, constatant et rapprochant les faits à sa connaissance, cette histoire de la femme, non seulement à travers l'histoire mais selon les nations (les hotentots sont souvent étudiés) est fascinante à plus d'un titre, notamment parce que l'auteur ne tombe jamais dans un naturalisme pur mais interroge toujours le rapport d'un fait à l'ensemble des composantes de l'être féminin, composantes autant sociales, vestimentaires, culturelles que traditionnelles et physiques,. Le traité d'hygiène formant le troisième volume est un traité physiologique, Moreau analysant les conséquences de cette physiologie sur le comportement, la sensibilité et les particularités féminines.

      Didot, 1803. - Didot, Paris 1803, 54x82cm, une feuille. - Stampa originale folio non mondati viaggiatori estratti in Bassa e Alto Egitto Vivant Denon.Planche piegare composti da una vista, come descritto dall'autore: Battaglia delle Piramidi. Questa tabella mostra il momento della doppia azione, dove due mamelucchi corporeo ogni fatto un uscita; una delle divisioni Dugua, Desaix e Reynier, l'altro sul battaglione comandato dal Generale Rampon (vedi nel conto giornale della battaglia, Volume 1, pagina 76). Ho cercato di dare l'immagine di una carica di Mamelucchi, cui sono stato testimone più volte, e la cui velocità, l'abbandono, la dedizione, coraggio e cavalleria, mi hanno sempre colpito; Volevo fare come risultato della shrapnel sulla cavalleria, che è venuto a sfidare il muso; Ho visto i servi a piedi attraverso i combattenti, il loro modo di portare i feriti, dei quali fuori dalla lotta; cammelli carichi di cartucce e strumenti bellici; palme con i loro frutti, come erano in quel momento, e fino alla fessurazione prodotte dalle inondazioni e dal calore del sole; e tutto ciò che caratterizza il paese, e contribuisce a dare una fisionomia peculiare. Il fondo contiene tutto il vasto orizzonte offre interessante: il diritto della stampa, è la strada di Suez e in Asia, dove si vede il corpo Ibrahim Bey; Cairo, ai piedi del Mokattam, o la punta della catena araba; il grande acquedotto, che succede al vecchio Cairo, sul bordo del fiume Boulac: luogo, il Nilo, con le isole di Raoudah, Boulac, e Lazzaretto; l'ammiraglia della flotta di Murat Bey, che ha dato fuoco durante la battaglia: l'altra faccia del Nilo, Djyzeh, casa di Murad Bey, la pianura e le piramidi Ssackarah; lo spazio tra di loro e quelle di Djyzeh, che è la posizione qu'occupoit Memphis; e ultima riga, Mont libica, la cui catena di bugie da sud a nord alle Piramidi Djyzeh, e, di conseguenza, cambiando tutto in una volta in direzione ovest, si è perso nel deserto Barca.Rousseurs di alcune pieghe, due restauri marginali minuscoli utilizzando pezzi Filmoplast, altrimenti buono stato. Pubblicato per la prima volta in due volumi, un atlante di incisioni, Didot, nel 1802, il 'Viaggio al Basso e Alto Egitto ha dimostrato un tale successo che fu tradotto nel 1803 in inglese e tedesco, e pochi anni dopo in olandese e italiano, tra gli altri. Quasi tutte le schede sono progettate da Denon, che ha anche lui inciso alcuni, tra cui i ritratti degli abitanti di Egitto, che conserva ancora la freschezza di schizzi presi sul posto (il nostro 104 - 111 ). Due dozzine di scrittori hanno inoltre collaborato per creare incisioni che Baltard, Galeno, Reville e autres.Dominique Vivant Denon barone la dice Vivant Denon, nato a Givry 4 gennaio, 1747 e morì a Parigi il 27 aprile 1825 è uno scrittore, autore, diplomatico e amministratore francese. Su invito di Bonaparte, si unì alla spedizione in Egitto di trasporto dal 14 Maggio 1798 sulla fregata "La Juno". Protetto dalle truppe francesi, ha avuto l'opportunità di viaggiare per il paese in tutte le direzioni, al fine di raccogliere il materiale che è stato la base per il suo lavoro artistico e il più importante letterario. Sostiene in particolare Desaix Generale nell'Alto Egitto, che si riferisce a numerosi schizzi, lavaggio inchiostri e altri disegni a penna, matita nera, o gesso. Egli attinge costantemente, di solito sul ginocchio, in piedi oa cavallo, e talvolta anche sotto il fuoco nemico. Dopo un viaggio di 13 mesi durante i quali egli trae migliaia di disegni, Vivant Denon tornò in Francia con Bonaparte, e divenne il primo artista a pubblicare la storia della spedizione. Le 141 tavole che accompagnano il suo diario ripercorrono tutto il suo viaggio dalla costa della Corsica ai monumenti faraonici dell'Alto Egitto. Bonaparte poi nominato Direttore Generale del Museo Centrale della Repubblica, che divenne il Museo di Napoleone e il Royal Louvre e amministratore arti. Nel 1805, Vivant Denon progetto di rilancio della colonna Vendome, che era stata sospesa nel 1803, poi organizza spedizioni in tutta Europa per aumentare imperiali opere d'arte che sono saccheggiato per essere portato via al Louvre. Nel 1814, Luigi XVIII confermato come capo del Louvre, un'ala che porta ancora oggi il suo nome. E 'considerato un grande precursore della museologia, storia dell'arte e di egittologia. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Gravure originale in folio non rognée, extraite du Voyage dans la Basse et la Haute Egypte de Vivant Denon. Planche dépliante composée d'une vue ainsi décrite par l'auteur : Bataille des pyramides. Ce tableau représente le moment de la double action, où deux corps de Mamelouks font chacun une sortie ; l'un sur les divisions Dugua, Desaix, et Reynier, l'autre sur le bataillon commandé par le général Rampon ( voyez dans le journal le récit de la bataille, tome 1, page 76 ). J'ai tâché de donner l'image d'une charge de Mamelouks, dont j'ai été plusieurs fois témoin , et dont la rapidité, l'abandon, le dévouement, et la bravoure chevaleresque, m'ont toujours frappé ; j'ai voulu rendre aussi l'effet de la mitraille sur cette cavalerie, qui venoit la braver jusqu'à la bouche du canon ; j'ai fait voir les serviteurs à pied à travers les combattants, leur maniere d'emporter les blessés, de les éloigner du combat; les chameaux portant les cartouches et les instruments guerriers; les palmiers avec leurs fruits , comme ils étoient à cette époque, et jusqu'à la gerçure produite par l'inondation et l'ardeur du soleil; enfin tout ce qui caractérise le pays, et contribue à lui donner une physionomie particuliere. Le fond contient tout ce que le vaste horizon offre d'intéressant : à droite de l'estampe, est la route qui conduit à Suez et en Asie, où l'on voit le corps d'Ibrahim - bey; la ville du Caire, au pied du Mokattam, ou l'extrémité de la chaîne arabique; le grand aqueduc, qui arrive jusqu'au vieux Caire, sur le bord du fleuve Boulac: plus en avant, le Nil, avec les isles de Raoudah, de Boulac, et du Lazaret ; le vaisseau amiral de la flotte de Mourat - bey, auquel, il fit mettre le feu pendant le combat : de l'autre côté du Nil, Djyzeh, la maison de Mourat - bey, la plaine et les pyramides de Ssackarah ; l'espace entre elles et celles de Djyzeh, qui est l'emplacement qu'occupoit Memphis; et en derniere ligne, le Mont - Libyque, dont la chaîne gît du sud au nord jusqu'aux pyramides de Djyzeh, et d'où , changeant tout - à - coup de direction à l'ouest, elle va se perdre dans les déserts de Barca. Rousseurs, quelques pliures, deux infimes restaurations marginales à l'aide de morceaux de filmoplast, sinon bel état de conservation. Publié pour la première fois en deux volumes, dont un atlas de gravures, chez Didot, en 1802, le 'Voyage dans la Basse et la Haute Égypte' connut un tel succès qu'il fut traduit dès 1803 en Anglais et en Allemand, puis quelques années plus tard en Hollandais et en Italien, notamment. Presque toutes les planches sont dessinées par Denon, qui en a aussi gravé lui - même un petit nombre, notamment des portraits d'habitants d'Egypte, qui ont encore gardée toute la fraîcheur d'esquisses prises sur le vif (nos 104 - 111). Une bonne vingtaine de graveurs ont également collaboré à la création des eaux - fortes dont Baltard, Galien, Réville et d'autres. Dominique Vivant, baron Denon, dit Vivant Denon, né à Givry le 4 janvier 1747 et mort à Paris le 27 avril 1825, est un graveur, écrivain, diplomate et administrateur français. A l'invitation de Bonaparte, il se joint à l'expédition d'Egypte en embarquant dès le 14 mai 1798 sur la frégate " La Junon ". Protégé par les troupes françaises, il a l'opportunité de parcourir le pays dans tous les sens, afin de rassembler le matériau qui servit de base à son travail artistique et littéraire le plus important. Il accompagne en particulier le général Desaix en Haute Egypte, dont il rapporte de très nombreux croquis, lavis à l'encre et autres dessins à la plume, à la pierre noire, ou à la sanguine. Il dessine sans relâche, le plus souvent sur son genou, debout ou même à cheval, et parfois jusque sous le feu de l'ennemi. A l'issue d'un voyage de 13 mois durant lesquels il dessine plusieurs milliers de croquis, Vivant Denon rentre en France avec Bonaparte, et devient le premier artiste à publier le récit de cette expédition. Les 141 planches qui accompagnent son Journal retracent l'ensemble de son voyage, depuis les côtes de la Corse jusqu'aux monuments pharaoniques de la Haute Egypte. Bonaparte le nomme ensuite directeur général du musée central de la République, qui devient le musée Napoléon, puis le musée royal du Louvre et administrateur des arts. En 1805, Vivant Denon relance le projet de la colonne Vendôme, qui avait été suspendu en 1803. Il organise ensuite des expéditions dans toute l'Europe impériale pour amasser les objets d'art, qui sont pillés pour être emportés au Louvre. En 1814, Louis XVIII le confirme à la tête du Louvre, dont une aile porte encore son nom aujourd'hui. Il est considéré comme un grand précurseur de la muséologie, de l'histoire de l'art et de l'égyptologie.

        The Triumphs of Temper. A Poem: In Six Cantos.

      - Chichester: Printed by F. Seagrave; For T. Cadell and W. Davies, Strand, London. 1803. Small 8vo, xii, 165 pp. With 6 engraved plates by William Blake after Maria Flaxman; with some browning or foxing to the plates and the leaves to each side, as usual, browned from offset. Old calf panelled in gilt, red calf label, joints split and repaired, with the half-title, a good copy signed at the front by W.M. Rossetti in ink dated 1868. In a quarter brown morocco slipcase. Rossetti's copy of the first edition with Blake's engravings. DNB notes: "Possibly his greatest achievement, however, was his didactic poem Triumphs of Temper (1781), which 'was to reform the entire feminine mind of England by the advice' (Bishop, 53). This allegorical work aspired, in rhyming couplets, to teach young women the virtues of a pleasant nature. Its advice was heeded by some: Emma Hamilton thanked Hayley 'for the lessons she had learnt from the poem' (P. Jaffe, Drawings by George Romney, 1978, 44) and asked Romney to inform Hayley that his poem 'made me Lady H. ? for Sir W. minds more temper than beauty' (ibid.). Triumphs of Temper ran into fourteen editions and proved to be the most durable of all his publications." Bentley, Blake Books, 471. Essick, William Blake's Commercial Book Illustrations, XLIII.

      1803 - A collection of three rare Traveller Guides from Peru, printed in Lima. 1803-1815. Lima. Real imprenta de los Niños Expositos, and Bernardo Ruiz. Three volumes in 12mo (c. 150 mm x 94 mm). 58 ff.; 1 [blank] + 53 ff. + 1 [blank]; 46 ff. Mostly in the contemporary wrappers. Very clean copies, in their entirely genuine condition. A very rare collection of three Peruvian Traveller guides, two of them in their contemporary wrappers. The three are rare, not a single copy of any being traced at auction, and few institutional holdings. The first two, are by the famous imprint of the Expositos, children left abandoned (thus exposed) at the doorsteps of orphanages. The wealth of information contained is remarkable; they are worthy successors to Unanue´s 18th century guides. Authorships can be attributed to Moreno and Paredes. Traveller guides often didn´t survive the year of their production, discarded as outdated; by definition, a book interesting for the single year of its confection. None in Medina, Lima.

        De la richesse commerciale, ou principes d'économie politique, appliqués à la législation du commerce

      Chez J. J. Paschoud. 1803 - - Chez J. J. Paschoud., A Fenève 1803 An XI., In-8 (12x20cm), (4) LXXXV (1bc.) 348pp. et (4) 448pp., relié. - Edition originale, rare. Reliures en pleine basane blonde racinée d'époque. Dos lisses orné de deux fers et deux caissons à la grotesque. Pièces de titre en maroquin rouge. Pièces de tomaison à la cire noire, mais très frottées et décolorées. Coiffes de tête et de queue très finement restaurées, ainsi que les mors en tête et queue, ainsi que les coins. Estafilade sur un plat. Bel exemplaire, bien frais. Oeuvre d'économie politique que l'auteur considère comme la plus haute des sciences, puisqu'elle est destinée au bonheur de l'individu. Initialement commentaire systématique de l'oeuvre d'Adam Smith afin que ses principes et axiomes soient appliqués en France, l'ouvrage dépasse par son envergure son propre propos en cherchant les grandes lois qui régulent le commerce et le capital. Mark Blaug (1927-2011), économiste anglais, considère Sismondi comme le premier critique du capitalisme industriel dans La pensée économique. Ce dernier invente un nouvelle manière de réguler les changes, utilisant des modèles mathématiques pour expliquer les phénomènes économiques. Sa vision de la balance commerciale est également nouvelle, l'auteur expliquant les effets des importations exédentaires ou des exportations excédentaires. Il démontre également combien une économie fermée diffère d'une économie libérale, basée sur les échanges internationaux. L'essentiel de ce travail se base sur la thèse fondamentale d'Adam Smith du travail comme force productive, la tâche du gouvernement étant de libérer ce travail afin d'accroître les richesses. Ouvrage fondamentale pour l'histoire de l'économie. Tampon bleu en bas de la page de titre : Carles A. S. Alfonso. Tampon noir sur le premier feuillet de préface : Ex-libris Vieira Pinto.

      Artist: Duncan Edward -1882 London; Issued in: London; date: c 1826 1803 - Artist: Duncan Edward, 1803 -1882 London; Issued in: London; date: c. 1826; - Condition: Wormhole perfectly restored, upper and right margin; After tutelage under the Havell Brothers in London, Duncan started his own engraving studio, and primarily created print works for Fores of Piccadilly. In 1826, a project to engrave maritime scenes, after paintings by William John Huggins (the official artist to the royal court of King William IV, and King George IV) are said to have sparked Duncan's interest in marine subjects. In time, Huggins would become Duncan's father in law, through the marriage of his daughter, Bertha Huggins. The couple had six sons and one daughter, Berth(e)a.The influences of both Havell and Huggins undoubtedly led to Duncan's long and successful career as one of Britain's foremost marine watercolorists.

Or, a sketch of the French capital; in extracts of letters from France, in the summer of 1802; with an index of many of the convents, churches, and palaces, not in the French catalogues, which have furnished pictures for the Louvre-Gallery. Octavo (203 x 103 mm). Later 19th-century tree calf, rolled bands gilt to smooth spine forming compartments, red morocco label to second, marbled edges. Engraved frontispiece, one engraved vignette to the text, woodcut finispiece. Engraved armorial bookplate of Edward Parker of Browsholme to front pastedown. Joints and tips very lightly rubbed. An excellent, tall copy. First edition. Weston (1747-1830) was a antiqurian and classical scholar who wrote some fifty books, including various editions of Persian poetry, commentaries on Shakespeare, and several studies of classical architecture; notably he produced the first English translation of the Rosetta Stone, presented verbally at a Society of Antiquaries meeting in 1802. As a young man he accompanied Sir Charles Warwick Bampfylde of Devon as his tutor on his tour of the continent. "As a result of this tour he conceived a passion for travel and a particular love for France and, especially, for Paris. He was in Paris during the revolution of 1791 and 1792, but thought it expedient to leave the city rather than take unnecessary risks ? He returned to Paris in 1802, and this visit too was celebrated by a publication, The Praise of Paris ? [which prompted] a contributor to the Gentleman's Magazine to write that although 'as an archaeologist he may have had something to learn, his little book is vividly written, and his descriptions as clean cut as a cameo'" (ODNB).

        A Chronological History of the Discoveries in the South Sea or Pacific Ocean.

      London: by Luke Hansard, and sold by G. and W. Nicol; G. and J. Robinson; J. Robson; T. Payne; and Cadell and Davies [vol. I; later imprints vary slightly],, 1803-17. 5 volumes, quarto (294 × 230 mm). Contemporary tree calf, neatly rebacked with original spines laid down, labels renewed to style, corners restored, gilt turn-ins, marbled endpapers and edges. Complete as issued with 22 engraved charts, of which 17 are folding (5 as frontispieces), and 13 engraved views, of which one is folding. Modern collector's bookplate in each volume. Some small areas of wear to bindings, minor spotting or browning internally, overall a very good set. First edition. "The most important general history of early South Seas discoveries, containing practically everything of importance on the subject; collected from all sources, with the most important remarks concerning them ? Many of the early voyages to California would be inaccessible were they not collected herein" (Hill). James Burney (1750?1821) had served on Cook's second and third voyages and witnessed Cook's killing. He reached the rank of captain, but his repeated acts of subordination and openly republican political views hampered his naval career. Forced into retirement on half pay, he followed the examples of his father, the historian of music Charles Burney, and his sister, the novelist Fanny Burney, by turning to writing. His first work was as ghost writer of William Bligh's A Voyage to the South Sea in HMS Bounty (1792). The present is his major work, describing the discoveries up to but not including Cook's, published in a format to be shelved next to those eight quartos. "This work, carefully researched and clearly and concisely written, long remained the standard on its subject. He was elected a fellow of the Royal Society in 1809" (ODNB).

Michaux (1746-1803), a student of Bernard de Jussieu, spent ten years of exploration in America, accompanied by his son and fellow botanist François André. He was commissioned by the French government to investigate potential sources of ship timber in North America. 'His contributions to our knowledge of American plant life made for him a place of imperishable distinction as an American botanist' (Humphrey, Makers of North American botany p. 176). The plates were engraved by Plée after drawings by Pierre Joseph Redouté./The work was also issued in octavo format on inferior paper.

      Leipsic: Breitkopf et Härtel [without PN], 1803. First Edition. Haberkamp I, p. 111. Köchel 6, p. 268 (Credo erroneously described as lacking; as is the case with the Benedictus, it is only "verstümmelt" [mutilated]). Hoboken 12, 718. Hirsch IV, 988. RISM M7369. Part of Breitkopf & Härtel's early "complete" edition. The work is originally a "Credo mass," i.e., the word "credo" is repeated in various places of the creed, like a refrain. The church condemned this practice as unliturgical, banning the music from performance. In the present edition, the movement has been altered (partially cut, partially rewritten) to eliminate the repetitions of the word. The Benedictus has a major cut in the middle (four new measures replacing mm. 28-62). The annotation in ink refers to the page where the Benedictus is "mutilated.". Oblong folio. Original light green printed wrappers with titling, "Oeuvres de Mozart. Messe No. II en Partition." [1] (title), 2-74 pp. Typeset. Text in Latin and German (except Kyrie, which is in Greek only). Early annotation, "Nro 188 pag. 53." in ink to head of title; 2 circular ink stamps flanking "No. II" of title.

        Deux preludes par tous les 12 tons majeurs pour le fortepiano, ou l?orgue composèes par Louis van Beethoven. Oeuvre 39.

      - Leipzig, Hoffmeister et Kühnel Bureau de Musique, (1803). Oblong 4to. Engr. title,+ 2-7 engr. pp. PN 271. Spotting on p. 7. Disbound, in later marbled paper wrappers. Kinsky-Halm p. 96. First edition of ?Zwei Praeludien durch alle Dur-Tonarten für Klavier oder Orgel? (Opus 39). ?These preludes date from Beethoven's teenage years in Bonn. They were not published until December 1803, when they were issued by Hoffmeister along with the Violin Romance opus 40 and the slightly questionable Serenade for Flute, opus 41. These publications of early works and a dubious transcription, apparently with Beethoven's approval, can probably be traced to a simple need for ready money.? [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Testacea microscopica aliaque minuta ex generibus Argonauta et Nautilus ad naturam delineata et descripta . Microscopische und andere kleine Schalthiere aus den Geschlechtern Argonaute und Schiffer, nach der Natur gezeichnet und beschrieben .

      - Wien, Camesianische Buchhandlung, 1803. 4to. (237 x 200mm). pp. xii, (4), 123, (1), with 24 handcoloured engraved plates. Later half vellum, spine with red gilt lettered label. Second edition of this very rare and early work on Foraminifera, the first edition of which was published 1798. It is especially valuable since Montfort designated in 1808 a large number of forms of Fichtel and Moll as the genotypes of many genera. These species were again discussed by Parker and Jones in 1860. A number of years ago the original collection of Fichtel and Moll, which was the basis of this book, was by chance rediscovered in the Museum of Natural History in Vienna. It may be stated that the authors gave, for that time, very accurate descriptions and illustrations of the treated species."The publication of Fichtel & Moll (1798) on 'Testacea microscopica' has been of large influence on the investigation of the protozoan group foraminifera. Description and figures of these small foraminifera are of high standard. Therefore it is believed, that Fichtel & Moll have used the most modern optical instruments, invented in the second half of the 18th century. Connected with the search for the authentity of the collection the biography of the authors became of interest. Johann Paul Carl von Moll, born 1735 in Oettingen (Bavaria) was involved later on in the work of the Naturalien Cabinet in Vienna, the forerunner of the Natural History Museum. He died in Vienna, 1812. His co-author Leopold von Fichtel, son of an enthusiastic naturalist Johann Ehrenreich von Fichtel, became famous for his collection of objects of nature. He was born 1770 in Hermannstadt (Sibiu, Rumania) and died in his young years 1810 in Vienna" (F. Rögl, L.v. Fichtel und J.P.C.v. Moll und ihre wissenschaftliche Bedeutung, Wien 1982). The plates are meticulously drawn and finely hand-coloured.Nissen ZBI, 1351. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

The plates were engraved by Plée after drawings by Pierre Joseph Redouté.The work was also issued in octavo format on inferior paper.

        A collection of Prints from pictures painted for the purpose of illustrating the dramatic works of Shakespeare by the Artists of Great Britain

      London: Shakespeare Gallery, 1803. Seven original engravings on paper. Vol.I, II. Each about 24" x 18 ˝ with engraved legends. With margins (some trimmed close to plate). Very good condition. These engravings are part of a magnificent series of 100 historical prints that illustrate the plays of Shakespeare. An historical print combines symbolic actions from a play then creates a tableau that intends to represents the scene. Each scene pictures a child or children from the plays. The origin of these majestic engravings grew from the publisher Alderman John Boydell who, in 1786, decided to publish ‘a fine edition of Shakespeare' that might rival the elegant volumes which the French were then producing of their national authors. John Boydell aspired to promote British artists and "establish an English school of historical painting," as he later wrote in his catalogue of The Shakespeare Gallery. The Boydell edition of Shakespeare in nine magnificent, folio volumes was finally finished in 1805. These much larger engravings were printed in a separate suite of 100 plates to be appreciated as art objects for their beauty. They were available for purchase individually from 1795 and, after 1805, complete in two volumes. According to the British Dictionary of National Biography (1886), "[The Boydell edition of Shakespeare] was the first great effort of the kind ever made by English artists, and its influence cannot easily be overestimated." Coriolanus Act V, iii 1803 After Gavin Hamilton, engraved by J. Caldwell. P&B II:29, p.270 Volumnia, Virgilia and young Marcius plead with Corlianus to spare Rome from destruction. Second Part of King Henry the Sixth. Act 1, iv. 1796 After John Opie, engraved by Charles Gauthier. P&B II:16, p258. “The duke yet lives that Henry shall dispose.” King John Act IV, I 1798 After James Northcote, engraved by Robert Thew P&B II,1, p. 244 A famous example of a scene based on historical principals. The innocent and sympathetically depicted young Arthur is about to be blinded by the executioner with coals on the orders of his uncle King John. King Richard the Third Act IV, iii 1790 After James Northcote, engraved by Franis Legat The “before” engraving P&B II:23, p265 This engraving anticipate the “slaughter of the innocents” scene (see below) King Richard the Third Act III, I 1791 After James Northcote, engraved by Robert Thew P&B II:2, p264 King Richard the Third Act IV, iii 1790 After James Northcote, engraved by Will. Shelton The “after” engraving P&B II:24, p266 “King. But didst thou see them dead? Tyr. I did my lord. King. And buried gentle. Tyriel? Tyr. The chaplain of the Tower hath buried them; But where to say the truth, I do not know.” Winter’s Tale Act II, iii 1793 After John Opie, engraved by Jean Pierre Simon P&B I:33, p234 Leontes caught up in rage bids Antigonus to “Swear by this sword” to kill the infant.
