        Histoire du canal de Languedoc rédigée sur les Pièces authentiques conservées à la Bibliothèque Impériale et aux Archives du Canal par les descendans de Pierre-Paul Riquet de Bonrepos

      - frontispice gravé en Paris, de l'imprimerie de Crapelet et chez Deterville, an XIII-1805, in-8, frontispice gravé en taille-douce, VIII-399-(1) pages, 1 carte, maroquin citron du Levant, dos lisse orné de roulettes dorées, de listels mosaïqués noirs et de petits fleurons rehaussés de vernis noir, roulette de pointillé large et bandes mosaïquées noires décorées d'un maillage doré en encadrement des plats, petits pois aux angles et chiffre M.C. au centre, tranches dorées, roulette sur les chasses, gardes de moire violette [Lefuel], Édition originale. Très bel exemplaire, dans une riche reliure de l'époque signée P. Lefuel, au chiffre CM : peut-être l'exemplaire personnel de l'un des descendants de Riquet de Bonrepos, qui furent responsable de l'édition des pièces inédites relatives à l'entreprise du Canal de Languedoc, ou bien d'une personne de leur entourage. Pierre-Paul de Riquet, comte de Caraman (1604-1680) pensa toute sa vie à la mise en oeuvre du canal de Languedoc, reliant l'Atlantique à la Méditerranée. Il amassa une fortune considérable qui lui permit, grâce à l'impulsion de Colbert et de Louis XIV, de lancer ce chantier cyclopéen, auquel il consacra 14 années : il mourut sans voir l'aboutissement des travaux. Ses descendants continuèrent le chantier et recouvrirent, beaucoup plus tard, les fonds investis. Ouvrage orné d'un beau frontispice gravé par R. Delvaux d'après Mirys. On y voit, sous le portrait en médaillon de Riquet de Bonrepos, une scène animée légendée "Riquet expose son projet aux Commissaires du Roi et des Etats". In fine : grande carte dépliante donnant le tracé du canal de l'étang de Thau, près d'Agde, à Toulouse et l'emplacement des 62 écluses. Un exemplaire relié à l'identique par Lefuel, provenant de la bibliothèque d'un descendant de Riquet de Bonrepos et portant le chiffre CR de la famille Caraman-Riquet, a été présenté chez Sotheby's en 2006.

Very nice, rare account of the travels of Adriaan van der Willigen through France. First 'modern' Dutch account of Paris. In 1802, the author , at the age of 37 went for a long journey through France, Italy,Oostenrijk, Switzerland and Germany and returned to Holland three years later. He could afford it because of a huge inheritance of his grandmothert hat made it possible for him to devote his life to arts, culture and travel. He was raised in a conservative Royalist family, but at certain age felt sympathy for the democratic patriots-movement. He was very curious about the revolutionary Paris in those days and so it became his first destination. Het took the usual route from Antwerp, Brussels, Valenciennes, Peronne and Roye. He would stay no less than two years in Paris and wrote a fascinating portrait of the city. He writes about the houses of the Parisians, about their fashion, their way of living , the bathing in the Seine and inside their homes, about food, religion etc. He also wrote about the political system of France, and about science and arts. This first edition was banned by the later French authorities in Holland. (Source: http://www.defranseverleiding.nl ).

        Evraq-i Perishan [Title in Persian] Moral Aphorisms in Arabic, and a Persian Commentary in Verse,

      London: by S. Rousseau,, 1805. translated from the originals. With specimens of Persian poetry. Likewise additions to the author's conformity of the Arabic and Persian with the English language. Octavo (227 × 141 mm). Untrimmed in original pink paper boards with title printed in black to covers, rebacked and recornered late c.19th in dark purple roan with new yellow surface-paper endpapers, rolled bands gilt to spine forming compartments, second and third gilt-lettered direct. Bookplate of Harold Blundell to front pastedown. Front joint skilfully restored, superficial cracking to skiver along spine, extremities worn, staining to front cover, rear cover rubbed, foxing to title-page and earlier leaves, scattered light spotting otherwise. A good copy only. First and only edition, commercially very scarce work translated from a 16th-century manuscript and once identified identified as a formative influence on the oriental yearnings of the young Lord Byron, a thesis which has since proved controversial as no explicit reference to the text has yet been identified in Byron's writings (Cochran, ed., Byron and Orientalism, p. 71). Stephen Weston was a noted antiquarian and classical scholar. The final section of the present text is an addendum to his Specimen of the Conformity of the European languages, particularly the English, with the Oriental languages, especially the Persian, published in 1802. He also wrote a partial translation of the Shah Nameh and compiled an anthology of Persian distiches.

        Le Nouveau Testament de notre seigneur Jésus-Christ. Imprimé sur l'édition de Paris, de l'année, 1805. Revue et corrigée avec soin d'après le texte Grec.

      1810 was the year that saw the first printing of a complete Testament in French in the U.S.-- a Catholic one was then issued in Boston for use among French Canadians and French émigrés. This edition came out the following year, and is both the second French N.T. to have been printed in the U.S. and the first Protestant one. Provenance: 19th-century ownership stamp of "Hiram Bell" at top of title-page. Evidence of Readership: A few lines from Gray's "Elegy written in a Country Churchyard" are pencilled in English on a front blank ("Full many a flower is born to blush unseen . . ."); and "pour passer le temps" is pencilled in under the list showing the testament's order of books on the title-page verso!

Esterhazy im Juli 1785 componirt v. W.A. Mozart; früher als Op. 114 erschienen; Partitur nach dem Original-Manuscript) Stimmendruck (Erstdruck oder sehr früher Druck), Äußerst SELTEN (= No. 2193), Preisangabe: Pr. netto 27 kr.

      Offenbach a/M., bei Joh. Andre, 1805. 12 S. Notenheft gr. 8°. Blaue Orig.Broschur, ältere Anm. am Einband und Titel, Stempel des Staatstheater und Hoftheater Carlsruhe am Einband und Titel und auf S. 9, Einige alte Anstreichungen im Notenteil, geringe Gebr.spuren, gutes Ex. (Diese Variante nur in einer belgischen Bibliothek in Utrecht nachweisbar, datiert anhand der aufgedruckten Währung, siehe Karlsruher Virtueller Katalog (KVK)) -------- Für sein Verzeichnüß aller meiner Werke von Monath Febrario 1784 bis Monath - verfasst Mozart im Juli 1785 folgenden Eintrag: \"Maurerische TrauerMusick beÿ dem Todfalle des Brbr: Meklenburg und Esterhazÿ. - 2 violini, 2 viole, 1 Clarinett, 1 Baßethorn, 2 oboe, 2 Corni e Baßo.\"1 Der Aufführungszweck scheint auf der Hand zu liegen - Herzog Georg August von Mecklenburg-Strelitz und der Hofkanzler Franz Graf Esterhazy von Galántha waren gestorben. Zweifel an dieser Aussage drängen sich jedoch auf, wenn man sich die Tatsache vor Augen führt, dass die beiden Fürsten nicht etwa im Juli 1785, sondern erst im November desselben Jahres das Zeitliche segneten.2 Die Maurerische Trauermusik existierte also schon ein halbes Jahr zuvor. Im Autograph des Werkes lässt sich beobachten, dass Mozart seiner Partitur zu einem späteren Zeitpunkt zwei Bassethörner3 und ein \"gran fagotto\" hinzufügte. Für die beiden Verstorbenen fanden vermutlich zwei Trauerfeiern in den Logen \"Zur gekrönten Hoffnung\" und \"Zu den drei Adlern\" statt. Bei letzterer waren, wie aus dem Anwesenheitsprotokoll hervorgeht, die drei Musiker Anton David, Vincent Springer und Theodor Locz anwesend. Ihre Anwesenheit könnte der Grund für die von Mozart vorgenommene Nachinstrumentierung gewesen sein (KV 479a).4 Dies ist ein Aspekt, der auf einen direkten Zusammenhang zwischen dem sozialen Raum der Freimaurerloge und der Komposition hindeuten könnte. Er erklärt jedoch nicht die Datierung des Stückes, die von Mozart für den Juli 1785 vorgenommen wurde. //////////// Autograph score is at the Staatsbibliothek zu Berlin. First published, as Op.114, by André in 1805 according to the Neue Mozart-Ausgabe. The Maurerische Trauermusik (Masonic Funeral Music) in C minor, K. 477 (K. 479a), is an orchestral work composed by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart in 1785 in his capacity as a member of the Freemasons. Mozart`s own entry into his catalogue under the heading \"July 1785\" must be considered in error; he most likely forgot to enter a new heading for November. It was performed during a Masonic funeral service held on 17 November 1785 in memory of two of Mozart`s Masonic brethren, Duke Georg August of Mecklenburg-Strelitz and Count Franz Esterházy von Galántha, members of the Viennese aristocracy. The work uses the Gregorian chant psalm-tone, tonus peregrinus. The work is scored for strings; woodwind instruments including two oboes, a clarinet, three basset horns and a contrabassoon; and two horns. The basset horn parts were written for fellow Freemasons Anton David and Vincent Springer. (Wikipedia) (= No. 2193), Preisangabe: Pr. netto 27 kr. Versand D: 5,00 EUR

        A Voyage Round the World, in the Years 1800, 1801, 1802, 1803, and 1804; in which the Author visited the principal Islands in the Pacific Ocean, and the English settlements of Port Jackson and Norfolk Island

      Richard Phillips, London 1805 - Three volumes, duodecimo, bound together in attractive contemporary tree calf, spine gilt with crimson label, a fine copy. Historically significant account of trading between New South Wales ports and the greater Pacific.Turnbull's book was the first serious account of commerce and trade originating from New South Wales. It was an influential book in promoting the idea of Australia as a venue for commercial success. A second edition was published eight years later as a single large volume.Turnbull and his partner Byers, envious of the profits being made by American traders, fitted out the Margaret for a speculative trading venture. They arrived in Sydney from the Cape of Good Hope in February 1801, and Turnbull gives a long description of the town, and the trading activities and agricultural prospects of the colony. They made similar stays in Tahiti and Hawaii (where they learned of Kamehameha's planned invasion of Kauai). Turnbull set up a business in Tahiti curing hogs with salt obtained in Hawaii. He is also remembered for the discovery of three islands in the Tuamotus. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Tableaux synoptiques de chimie, pour servir de résumé aux leçons données sur cette science dans les Ecoles de Paris

      - 8 pages, 6 grands feuillets Paris, C.F. Patris, An XIV - 1805, in-folio, 8 pages, 6 grands feuillets repliés imprimés recto-verso, contenant 12 tableaux, demi-veau tabac, dos lisse, pièce de titre grenat, plats de papier caillouté moderne, Seconde édition, aussi rare que la première de 1800. Ce sont les premiers tableaux synoptiques chimiques jamais publiés, voués à former "la suite véritable de la Philosophie chimique", publiée par Fourcroy en 1795, et à constituer une sorte de "table méthodique" de son important Système général des connaissances chimiques en 10 volumes (1800-1801). L'ouvrage fut publié à l'origine en tant que support pour les élèves de l'École Polytechnique. Cette nouvelle édition a été corrigée et augmentée à la lumière des découvertes récentes et comporte quelques modifications dans la classification des corps. "A very scarce work; probably due to the fact that the tables were frequently torn out to be stuck on the walls of lecture theatres" (Duveen). Exemplaire provenant de la bibliothèque du physicien Antoine-César Becquerel, avec son ex-libris manuscrit en tête de la première page de texte : Antoine-César Becquerel, connu notamment pour avoir formulé les principales lois du dégagement de l'électricité dans les effets thermo-électriques, démontra le premier l'origine chimique de l'électricité dans la pile. Il est le père d'Edmond Becquerel et le grand père d'Henri Becquerel. Notons qu'il fut élève de l’École Polytechnique (promotion de 1806) et, qu'à ce titre, il a très vraisemblablement écouté le cours de Fourcroy. Smeaton 73. Cole 484. Sotheran, Suppl. III, 2637.

        Maurerische Trauermusik für 2 Violinen, 2 Violas, 1 Clarinett, 3 Bassetthörner, 2 Oboi, 2 Hörner u. gr. Fagott (Für die Todenfeyer der Br. B. Mecklenburg u. Esterhazy im Juli 1785 componirt v. W.A. Mozart; früher als Op. 114 erschienen; Partitur nach dem Original-Manuscript) Stimmendruck (Erstdruck oder sehr früher Druck), Äußerst SELTEN

      Offenbach a/M., bei Joh. Andre 1805 - 12 S. Notenheft gr. 8°. Blaue Orig.Broschur, ältere Anm. am Einband und Titel, Stempel des Staatstheater und Hoftheater Carlsruhe am Einband und Titel und auf S. 9, Einige alte Anstreichungen im Notenteil, geringe Gebr.spuren, gutes Ex. (Diese Variante nur in einer belgischen Bibliothek in Utrecht nachweisbar, datiert anhand der aufgedruckten Währung, siehe Karlsruher Virtueller Katalog (KVK)) -------- Für sein Verzeichnüß aller meiner Werke von Monath Febrario 1784 bis Monath - verfasst Mozart im Juli 1785 folgenden Eintrag: "Maurerische TrauerMusick beÿ dem Todfalle des Brbr: Meklenburg und Esterhazÿ. - 2 violini, 2 viole, 1 Clarinett, 1 Baßethorn, 2 oboe, 2 Corni e Baßo."1 Der Aufführungszweck scheint auf der Hand zu liegen - Herzog Georg August von Mecklenburg-Strelitz und der Hofkanzler Franz Graf Esterhazy von Galántha waren gestorben. Zweifel an dieser Aussage drängen sich jedoch auf, wenn man sich die Tatsache vor Augen führt, dass die beiden Fürsten nicht etwa im Juli 1785, sondern erst im November desselben Jahres das Zeitliche segneten.2 Die Maurerische Trauermusik existierte also schon ein halbes Jahr zuvor. Im Autograph des Werkes lässt sich beobachten, dass Mozart seiner Partitur zu einem späteren Zeitpunkt zwei Bassethörner3 und ein "gran fagotto" hinzufügte. Für die beiden Verstorbenen fanden vermutlich zwei Trauerfeiern in den Logen "Zur gekrönten Hoffnung" und "Zu den drei Adlern" statt. Bei letzterer waren, wie aus dem Anwesenheitsprotokoll hervorgeht, die drei Musiker Anton David, Vincent Springer und Theodor Locz anwesend. Ihre Anwesenheit könnte der Grund für die von Mozart vorgenommene Nachinstrumentierung gewesen sein (KV 479a).4 Dies ist ein Aspekt, der auf einen direkten Zusammenhang zwischen dem sozialen Raum der Freimaurerloge und der Komposition hindeuten könnte. Er erklärt jedoch nicht die Datierung des Stückes, die von Mozart für den Juli 1785 vorgenommen wurde. //////////// Autograph score is at the Staatsbibliothek zu Berlin. First published, as Op.114, by André in 1805 according to the Neue Mozart-Ausgabe. The Maurerische Trauermusik (Masonic Funeral Music) in C minor, K. 477 (K. 479a), is an orchestral work composed by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart in 1785 in his capacity as a member of the Freemasons. Mozart's own entry into his catalogue under the heading "July 1785" must be considered in error; he most likely forgot to enter a new heading for November. It was performed during a Masonic funeral service held on 17 November 1785 in memory of two of Mozart's Masonic brethren, Duke Georg August of Mecklenburg-Strelitz and Count Franz Esterházy von Galántha, members of the Viennese aristocracy. The work uses the Gregorian chant psalm-tone, tonus peregrinus. The work is scored for strings; woodwind instruments including two oboes, a clarinet, three basset horns and a contrabassoon; and two horns. The basset horn parts were written for fellow Freemasons Anton David and Vincent Springer. (Wikipedia) (= No. 2193), Preisangabe: Pr. netto 27 kr. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Real provision executoria de infanzonía en propiedad ganada por Don Pedro Ximenez de Bagües, y sus hijos Doña Valera, y Don Mariano Ximenez de Bagües: Don Francisco Gimenez de Bagües con sus hijos Doña Maria de los Remedios, Doña Maria de los Dolores, y Don Francisco Xavier Ximenez de Bagües, de Ximenez de Bagües, vecinos de esta ciudad de Zaragoza, y Don Josef Ximenez de Bagües, y sus hijos Don Pio, Doña Mariana, Don Mariano, Doña Severa, y Doña Lorenza Ximenez de Bagües de la ciudad de Huesca.

      Zaragoza: Herederos de la Viuda de Francisco Moreno Folio (29.4 cm; 11.625"). [17] ff., 4 plt.. 1805 This patent of nobility ("Real Provision Executoria de Infanzonía") outlines the history of the Ximenez de Bagües family and the meaning of their assigned coat of arms. Three pages contain an "Arbol Genealogico" starting in 1596 with Don Miguel Ximenez de Bagües; two of these pages are => hand-colored with black and green ink to form leafy branches connecting members of the family tree. Printed patents of nobility are unusual as the documents were normally created as an ornate manuscript using multiple colors. Searches of the CCPB show 16 examples of printed patents of nobility and the Spanish National Library claims only one; WorldCat lists only one example held in the United States. => None of these examples describe the Ximenez de Bagües family. The final leaf is a => full-page copperplate engraving of the Don Pedro Ximenez de Bagües coat of arms in sepia ink, surmounted by a helm and banners, supported by putti, and surrounded with military impedimenta including spears, a club, a bugle, a shield, a drum, cannonballs, and a cuirass. The plate is signed "Js. Dordal" for José Dordal (1780–1808), a Zaragosan engraver known for his portraits, including one of Ramon Pignatelli. Later tan buckram with light soiling on covers and spots of discoloration; small amount of pencilling on endpapers. Gentle age-toning, light marginal waterstaining, and some creasing; two small wormholes in top margin of title-page, same leaf with a sliver of upper gutter margin lost and the next with that portion folded down in binding; a handful of very small pinpricks on outer edge of plate. => A visually engaging example of an unusual, PRINTED patent of nobility.

        A practical treatise on brewing, distilling, and rectification, with the genuine process of making brandy, rum, and Hollands gin, the London practice of brewing porter, ale, and table beer, the method of brewing country ales, &c.

      London: Robert Scholey 4to (27.5 cm, 10.9"). xxxii (half-title lacking), 307, [1], 248, 135, [1], 183, [1] pp.; 8 plts. (1 fold.), 5 fold. tables.. 1805 Without a doubt, this is one of the most prominent English works on brewing and vinting of its time, present here in its first editon. Shannon, a physician whose first name is given as Robert by some sources and Richard by others, promotes a scientific approach to utilizing chemistry and methodical processes rather than guesswork or tradition; each section of his exhaustive treatment of the subject provides not only definitions, recipes, and instructions for all sorts of eventualities, but also comprehensive lists of varieties of beer, wine, and other spirits from different regions — so that Kingston ale, Brunswick Mum, spruce-beer, red ratafia, lemon wine, and vino tinto, as well as various cordials, essential oils, bitters, vinegars, and distilled waters, are present here alongside porter, Holland gin, cider, mead, sherry, etc. The author also gives histories of some of the primary types of spirits and liquors, along with details of viniculture, transportation of materials and products, etc. Gabler (Words into Wine) notes that while most writers consider Alexander Henderson's the first detailed account in English of modern wines, Shannon's work => predates Henderson's by 19 years. The volume opens with a list of the subscribers; each book has a separate title-page; and the text is enhanced with => eight engraved plates depicting equipment and five folding charts of various measurements and benchmarks. There are several pencilled annotations present in the margins, indicating practical and analytical-minded engagement with the text. Provenance: Front free endpaper with inked ownership inscription of the Hon. Henry Frederick Francis Adair Barrington, a South African lawyer, politician, and farmer; the inscription is dated 1877, five years before his death. 19th-century half navy straight-grain morocco with marbled paper–covered sides, edges speckled brown, and spine with gilt-stamped title and gilt-ruled raised bands; rubbed at joints, sides, and board edges with front turn-in slightly pulled at head. Half-title lacking, leaf z1 in the appendix apparently a cancel, title-page with small edge nick, inked inscription and pencilled annotations as above with some final words of notes partially shaved. Some leaves, plates, and sections variously with creasing, foxing, corners bumped, or light to moderate waterstaining; perhaps three short tears; none of this frightful and the volume quite sound. Front pastedown with small ticket of a London bookseller. An important treatise designed to be used as a reference work and a copy of it that was used so.

        [Op. 47]. Sonata per il Piano-forte ed un Violino obligato, scritta in uno stile concertante, quasi come d'un concerto. Composta e dedicata al suo amico R. Kreuzer [!Kreutzer]... Opera 47. [Parts]

      Bonn: N. Simrock [PN] 422. [ca. 1805]. Oblong and upright folio. Disbound. Piano part: 1f. (title), [3] (blank), 4-35, [i] (blank) pp. Engraved. Price: "6 Fr." Annotations to title page in French in faint red crayon, partly illegible: "44 planch[es] Simphonie même [?]retourner." Violin part: 12 pp. Piano part extensively marked up for re-engraving in an unknown hand, occasionally in ink ("Commencer planche 2" and "Beethoven, op. 47" at head of p. 4); annotations to title in faint red crayon, partially illegible: "44 planch[es] Simphonie même [?]retourner;" additional annotations in red crayon and pencil; pagination amended to exclude blanks; references at page ends with custos function ("V.S.", "V. Var. 1," etc.) deleted; system rebreaks indicated; numerous errors in notation corrected; fingerings added (apparently in another hand, not for re-engraving). Violin part from another copy. . First Edition, later issue with corrections to title consisting of "uno stile" instead of "uno stilo" in the 3rd line and the insertion of "per" before the composer's name. Kinsky p. 111. Dorfmüller plates 2 und 3. Hoboken 2, 228 (violin part could also be 227). The piano part of the present copy evidently served as a Stichvorlage for a later edition that remains to be identified. The French directives would suggest a French publisher, or at least a French engraver; the system rebreaks imply that the new edition was no longer to be in oblong format. Jacob Lateiner's catalogue card claims: "This copy used by Farrenc to publish his own edition." No edition of op. 47 by Farrenc has, however, been traced. Beethoven completed the Kreutzer Sonata in 1803. He had intended to dedicate it to the violinist George P. Bridgetower (1778-1860), for whom he wrote the work and who gave its first performance. Beethoven changed his mind and dedicated it to the French violin virtuoso and composer Rodolphe Kreutzer (1766-1831), "who had made a very favourable first impression on him. Ironically, Kreutzer then refused the play the sonata, which he reportedly found 'outrageously unintelligible.' " Kaplan: The Cambridge Companion to Beethoven, p. 138. Bridgetower, an English violinist, was the son of a West Indian father and a European mother. "He appeared at court in Windsor, and at concerts in Bath and Bristol, before making his London début at the Drury Lane Theatre oratorio on 19 February 1790. His concerto performances here attracted the notice of the Prince of Wales (later King George IV)... During the next decade he played at many prestigious London concerts, appearing alongside Haydn at Salomon's series... It was through Prince Lichnowsky that Bridgetower met Beethoven in the spring of 1803 and that their famous concert (in the Augarten, 0n 24 May) was financed... There is no question that Beethoven, who spoke highly of Bridgetower both as a soloist and as a quartet player, intended to dedicate this sonata to the young violinist... But the two men later fell out of favour with one another, allegedly after a quarrel over a girl..." George Grove in Grove online "The virtuosity and scale of this famous sonata proclaim it even more decidedly a middle-period work. In composing it in, as the original title-page says, 'a very concertante style, almost like a concerto', Beethoven transferred the violin sonata from the private salon to the concert hall (at a time when public concerts were becoming established in Vienna) and did for the medium what the 'Razumovsky' Quartets did for the string quartet and the 'Waldstein' and 'Appassionata' Sonatas for the piano sonata." Arnold and Fortune: The Beethoven Reader, p. 220. A particularly interesting copy.

        Ancient and modern Malta: Containing a full and accurate account of the present state of the islands of Malta and Goza, the history of the knights of St. John of Jerusalem, also a narrative of the events which attended the capture of these islands by the French, and their conquest by the English: and an appendix, containing authentic state-papers and other documents.

      London: Richard Phillips 4to (27.5 cm, 10.75"). 2 vols. I: [6], xlviii, 326 pp.; 2 fold. plts., 3 fold. tables, 17 plts. (fold. map & 1 prelim. f. lacking). II: [8], vi, xxxi, [1], 258, [2], 315, [9 (index)] pp.; 5 plts.. 1805 Second edition, following the first of 1804–05. The author, who was himself a Knight of St. John, here covers the culture, language, economy, natural history, and costume of the Maltese — as well as describing the Bichon or Maltese dog (also rendered pictorially in one of the plates) — before moving on to the history of the Hospitallers from the 16th century onwards. Vol. I includes catalogues of scientific names of the plants and fish of the area as according to various authors, and is illustrated with an => oversized, folding detailed view of the city and port of Malta (with an accompanying folding chart identifying the major landmarks of that view); at the back of that volume there are also two folding tables accounting for treasury expenses of the Order of St. John of Jerusalem. Vol. II features a view of Messina, along with several portraits. In total, the work is illustrated with => 24 copper-engraved plates, some aquatint, done by Merigot and others. Binding: Contemporary stained calf, panelled in dramatically mottled calf with inlaid corner fleurons, framed in gilt double fillets; spine with gilt-stamped title and gilt-stamped Greek key bands. Bound as above with leather expectably acid-pitted, scuffing with small cracks and spine titles partially rubbed away; joints (outside) expertly repaired. Folding map and one preliminary leaf (the list of plates) lacking in vol. I and that volume with a light old waterstain occasionally visible across a gutter, mild to moderate offsetting, plates with likewise mild to moderate foxing; vol. II plates with slightly darker spotting. A strong and attractive set of one of the significant early works on Maltese history.
