        Charlotte Countess of Cholmondeley and the Hon Henry Cholmondeley

      London: Published by the engraver, No 50 Warren Street, Fitzroy Square, 1805. Mezzotint. State i/ii with scratch letters. Printed on laid paper. A stunning impression in excellent condition. Skillfully remargined outside platemark on top of sheet. Small section in-filled in lower left corner of sheet outside platemark. Lower left corner skillfully in-filled outside platemark. Paper strengthened in upper right corner of sheet. Skillfully mended tear in upper right corner of image. Tiny section of image in-filled in lower right corner of image. Trimmed within platemark on lower margin. This stunning print is a rich impression of Charles Turner's mezzotint portrait of the Countess of Cholmondeley and her son after Hoppner. John Hoppner was at the height of his powers at the time he painted Lady Cholmondeley and her son, Henry. The grand aristocratic portrait had been the domain of Sir Joshua Reynolds, carried on by Hoppner, Raeburn and later, Lawrence. Apart from dressing very young boys in dresses, what separates us from this epoch is the sense of noble vulnerability we feel in the countess, who occupies her station graciously and without apology. Georgiana Charlotte Bertie (1764-1838) married George, Earl (later Marquess) of Cholmondeley in 1791. Her calm demeanor, elegance and self-containment epitomise the aristocratic feminine ideal of the period. Henry Cholmondelely (1800-1884) was about four when the painting was done. As Lord Cholmondeley was a moderate Tory at Parliament. Charles Turner was an outstanding engraver who throughout his memorable career produced an array of wonderful images. Born in Oxfordshire, Turner moved to London in 1795, at which time he was employed by the famous engraver and publisher Boydell. Turner was a versatile engraver working in stipple and aquatint as well as mezzotint. Although Turner produced a wide array of excellent prints in subjects ranging from topography to genre, his main artistic focus was portraiture. Throughout his career he produced more than six hundred plates, of which about two-thirds were portraits. Turner was a close friend of J.M.W. Turner, and engraved many of the artist's paintings, in addition to engraving some plates for 'Liber Studiorum'. The work of Charles Turner is highly regarded by print connoisseurs as an engraver who combined technical skill with an artistic imagination to create beautiful enduring images.

        A Natural History of Uncommon Birds, and of Some Other Rare and Undescribed Animals

      London: printed by C. Rickaby "for the author" [i.e. William Gardiner and Messrs. Robinson], 1805. 4 parts bound in 2 volumes. Titles and text printed on wove or laid paper, two general titles (one in French and one in English) at the front of vol.I with engraved vignettes by Johann Sebastian Müller. 1 hand-coloured etched emblematic frontispiece, 211 etched plates (printed on wove or laid paper, 210 finely hand-coloured, 1 uncoloured etched plate of the Samoyed) all by and after Edwards, woodcut head- and tailpieces and initials. [ With :] EDWARDS, George (1694-1773). Gleanings of Natural History, Exhibiting Figures of Quadrupeds, Birds, Insects, Plants, &c. London: printed by C. Rickaby for "the author" [i.e. William Gardiner and Messrs. Robinson], "1758-1760" [plates watermarked 1803-1805]. 3 parts bound in 2 volumes. Titles and text printed on wove or laid paper, one general title at the front of vol.I with engraved vignettes by Johann Sebastian Müller, letterpress English and French general title and part-titles, text in English and French in double columns, translated by J. du Plessis and Edmond Barker. 1 uncoloured engraved portrait of the author by Miller after "Dandridg," 152 etched plates (printed on wove or laid paper) all finely hand-coloured, by and after Edwards and others. Together 4 volumes. Quarto (11 1/2 x 9 1/4 inches). Uniform contemporary red straight-grained morocco, covers with border of a triple gilt fillet, spines in six compartments with double raised bands, the bands highlighted with gilt fillets and roll tools, lettered in the second and fourth compartments, gilt turn-ins, gilt edges. Provenance : George Savile Foljambe (1800-1869, Osberton Hall, Nottinghamshire, England, armorial bookplate). A spectacular set of "one of the most important of all bird books, both as a fine bird book and a work of ornithology" (Fine Bird Books). This issue, bound circa 1815, benefits greatly from being published at a time when two book-arts were at a high point: the art of hand-colouring was at its most sophisticated and the design and execution of bindings was equally exceptional. The colouring in this issue has the clear jewel-like quality that is a feature of the work of the best colourists of the Regency period. The same period also produced some of best binders since the 17th-century Restoration masters and the present set is a delightfully-understated example of the kind of craftsmanship of which they were capable. Edwards "has been well described as an unscientific but very accurate describer and painter of animal life, and his writings will always remain of paramount authority, from the faithfulness of his description of many new birds, subsequently incorporated in the Linnaean System. He had, says Swainson, the simplicity and piety of Izaac Walton, and may be looked upon as one of our greatest worthies. He retired about 1764 to Plaistow, died July 23, 1773" (Mullens and Swann p.194). "Through the influence of Sir Hans Sloane, [Edwards] was chosen Librarian to the Royal College of Physicians ... Almost immediately after he was appointed ... Edwards commenced the preparation of a series of coloured drawings of animals and birds, used later to illustrate [the present work]; for these he was awarded the Gold Medal of the Royal Society and subsequently elected a Fellow" (Lisney p.127). The work was quite successful and went through a number of transformations whilst under Edwards' control, including the issuing of a French text edition. Shortly after he retired in 1769 he sold "to Mr. James Robson, Bookseller ... all the remaining copies of my Natural History ... coloured under my immediate inspection, together with all my copper-plates, letter-press, and every article in my possession relative to it ... and that my labours may be handed down to posterity with integrity, truth, and exactness, I have delivered into his hands a complete set of plates, highly coloured by myself, as a standard to those Artists who may be employed in colouring them for the future" (George Edwards, declaration quoted in Robson's Some Memoirs… of George Edwards , dated May Ist, 1769). [Bound at the end of the second work are:] [J. ROBSON] Some Memoirs of the Life and Works of George Edwards . London: for J.Robson, 1776. Lacking the 4 engraved plates. Zimmer p.529.

        Carey's American Atlas: Containing Twenty Maps and One Chart

      Philadelphia: engraved for and published by Mathew Carey, 1805. Folio. (17 1/8 x 10 7/8 inches). Letterpress title (incorporating a list of the maps) printed on wove paper, otherwise engraved throughout on laid paper. 21 engraved maps (11 double-page, 5 folding, 3 with period hand-colouring in outline). Expertly bound to style in diced russia over the original marbled paper-covered boards, flat spine in compartments divided by gilt double fillets, lettered in the second compartment An exceedingly rare issue of the first atlas of the United States published in America. This scarce atlas contains the same maps as the first edition of Carey's American Atlas of 1795. Following that first edition, the first atlas of the United States published in America, Carey printed from the same copper plates used for the 1796 first edition of his General Atlas , adding plate numbers to the upper right corners. Carey would re-issue his General Atlas in 1800 and 1804. Less well known, however, is the fact that he would also reissue the American Atlas in 1800 and 1805. Those issues of the American Atlas contained maps printed subsequent to the 1796 General Atlas , and therefore include the plate numbers from that work , thus explaining the haphazard numbering of the maps. Other than the addition of the plate numbers, the maps are from the same plates and appear to be identical to the first edition maps from the American Atlas of 1795. All the maps are printed on laid paper, and are preceded by a cancel letterpress title on wove. It seems likely, that Carey published this issue of the atlas from his remaining stock of the maps from the 1796 General Atlas with the addition of the cancel title. This would explain the presence of period hand-colouring on some of the maps in this copy, but not all. Although the title states the price of the atlas to be $5 plain and $6 colored, a contemporary ink inscription on the front pastedown suggests the atlas was sold for $4. A second edition of the American Atlas would be published in 1809, containing additional maps. The maps in the present atlas are as follows: 1. The British Posessions in North America ... by Samuel Lewis 1794. Double page, hand coloured in outline 2. The Province of Maine ... by Samuel Lewis, 1794. Hand coloured in outline 3. The State of New Hampshire ... by Samuel Lewis, 1794. Double page, hand coloured in outline 4. Vermont From actual survey ... by Amos Doolittle. Folding 5.

The later issues of the first edition of the American Atlas -- i.e. the issues of 1800 and 1805 (as here) -- are very rare. Neither are cited in Phillips or LeGear and we can find no examples of this 1805 issue in the book auction records or OCLC. Howes C135 (seemingly confusing issues of the American Atlas with Carey's American Pocket Atlas ); Streeter Sale 79 (1800 issue). This issue not in Phillips or Sabin.

'Italian tragic poet whose predominant theme was the overthrow of tyranny. In his tragedies, he hoped to provide Italy with dramas comparable to those of other European nations. Through his lyrics and dramas he helped to revive the national spirit of Italy and so earned the title of precursor of the Risorgimento, Educated at the Military Academy of Turin, Alfieri became an ensign. A distaste for military life led him to obtain leave to travel through most of Europe. In England he found the political liberty that became his ideal, and in France the literature that influenced him most profoundly. He studied Voltaire, J.J. Rousseau, and above all, Montesquieu. Alfieri settled in Turin in 1772 and resigned his commission the following year. To divert himself, he wrote 'Cleopatra', a tragedy performed with great succes in 1775. Thereupon Alfieri decided to devote himself to literature. He began a methodical study of the classics and of the Italian poets, and since he expressed himself mainly in French, the language of the ruling classes in Turin, he went to Tuscany to familiarize himself with pure Italian. By 1782 he had written 14 tragedies as well as many poems (including four odes in the series 'L'America libera', on American independence). Meanwhile, in Florence in 1777, Alfieri had met the Countess of Albany, wife of the Stuart pretender to the English throne, Charles Edward. He remained deeply attached to her for the rest of his life. Alfieri's genius was essentialy dramatic. Alfieri's tragedies present the struggle between a champion of liberty and a tyrant.'

        Histoire du canal de Languedoc rédigé 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, non couronné, de M[arie]-C[aroline] de Bourbon-Sicile, duchesse de Berry (1798-1870), qui réunit dans son château de Rosny, près de Mantes, une importante bibliothèque de volumes imprimés et manuscrits. (Fer non connu de Guigard et de l'OHR.) Pierre-Paul de Riquet (1604-1680) pensa toute sa vie à la mise en œuvre 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. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        The Seasons -- LARGE PAPER COPY IN ORIGINAL BOARDS

      London: T. Bensley for J. Wallis, 1805 - Roy. 8vo, pp. xx + 286. The best edition of this beloved and much reprinted poem, first published in 1730, featuring a title vignette and nine engravings by Bewick after designs by John Thurston. Wallis's edition of THE SEASONS was issued in five parts in three editions: foolscap (at 7s 6d), demy octavo (at 12s 6d), and royal octavo (at 15s). This example is one of the latter, "printed in the best style by [Thomas] Bensley, on a superfine wove Paper, upon a new and very large Type," as the prospectus notes. The difference in the editions was not only the size and quality of the paper but also the size of the illustration. Whereas the two cheaper editions printed scaled-down images of the woodcuts in landscape, the royal octavo featured full-size woodcuts printed in portrait. As the author of a 2013 essay on Wallis's editions observes, "The differences in orientation and design of the illustrations profoundly affect the material appearance of the editions and the consumer’s reading experience." Sandro Jung notes in a recent monograph on the visual history of Thomson's poem, in Bewick's hands "nature and human life has reached a balance, and even the rustic cottage no longer features as an alien object within the landscape but is naturalized." It was the same year that this edition of THE SEASONS was published that Wordsworth rhapsodized Bewick in LYRICAL BALLADS: "O now that the genius of Bewick were mine, / And the skill which he learned on the banks of the Tyne! / Then the Muses might deal with me just as they chose, / For I'd take my last leave both of verse and of prose. / What feats would I work with my magical hand! / Book learning and books would be banished the land." Hugo 203; Tattersfield TB 2.569.

Literatur: Le Blanc 19; Perez 131, III (von III). – Sehr guter Abdruck dieses historisch besonders interessanten Blattes. Das Chinapapier auf einen Folio-Bogen aufgewalzt, dieser in den Rändern stockfleckig und mit kleinen Einrissen. Der hauptsächlich als Zeichner, Radierer und Kupferstecher tätige Künstler studierte in seiner Geburtsstadt an der École gratuite de dessin. Darüber hinaus bildete er sich autodidaktisch weiter. 1758 veröffentlichte er im Auftrag des Pariser Stechers und Kupferstichverlegers Pariset seine ersten Radierungen. 1761-1764 setzte er sein Studium in Paris fort, wo er Schüler des Historienmalers J.-Ch. Frontier (1701-1763) und eines gewissen Lombards war. In Paris verkehrte er im Kreis von J.G. Wille (1715-1808), Jos. Vernet (1714-1789), L.-E. Watelet (1780-1866), J.-B. Greuze (1725-1805), J.G. Soufflot (1713-1780) und dem jungen Herzog Alex Duc de La Rochefoucauld, den er 1765-1766 nach Italien begleitete. In Italien schuf er zahlreiche Landschaftszeichnungen und Abbildungen von Monumenten. Nach seiner Rückkehr nach Lyon hatte er großen Erfolg mit seinen Zeichnungen und Radierungen, mit Porträts und italienischen und niederländischen Landschaften sowie der heimischen Landschaft von Lyon. Auch als Reproduktionsstecher nach Gemälden oder Skulpturen fand er zahlreiche Auftraggeber. 1771 wurde der Künstler zum königlichen Berater und Kämmerer berufen. 1780 erfolgte die Aufnahme in die Lyoner Akademie. Während der französischen Revolution stand er unter der Protektion des Künstlers J.-L David (1748-1825) – seine Kupferplatten wurden unter gesetzlichen Schutz gestellt. 1802 wurde Boissieu Mitglied der Verwaltungskommission des Kunstkonservatoriums. 1806 bis zu seinem Tode war er Bürgermeister von Lentilly in der Nähe von Lyon. Boissieus Arbeiten sind in den Museen weltweit zu finden, so in Paris im Louvre, in Frankfurt am Main im Städel oder in der National Gallery of Art in Washington DC.

Die Vorrede von Franz Nicolaus Baur umfaßt die Seiten 1 - 142. 2ccolò di Bernardo dei Machiavelli [nikko\'l? makja\'v?lli] (* 3. Mai 1469 in Florenz, Republik Florenz; † 21. Juni 1527 ebenda) war ein florentinischer Philosoph, Politiker, Diplomat, Chronist und Dichter.Vor allem aufgrund seines Werkes Il Principe (dt. Der Fürst) gilt er als einer der bedeutendsten Staatsphilosophen der Neuzeit. Machiavelli ging es hier – im Ansatz neutral – darum, Macht analytisch zu untersuchen, anstatt normativ vorzugehen und die Differenz zwischen dem, was sein soll und dem, was ist, festzustellen. Er orientierte sich in seiner Analyse an dem, was er für empirisch feststellbar hielt.[1] Sein politisches und literarisches Werk Discorsi ist darüber in den Hintergrund getreten.Der später geprägte Begriff Machiavellismus wird oft als abwertende Beschreibung eines Verhaltens gebraucht, das zwar raffiniert ist, aber ohne ethische Einflüsse von Moral und Sittlichkeit die eigene Macht und das eigene Wohl als Ziel sieht. Sein Name wird daher heute häufig mit rücksichtsloser Machtpolitik unter Ausnutzung aller Mittel verbunden.\" (Wikipedia) * * Gut bis sehr gut erhaltenes Exemplar.

        A TREATY BETWEEN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA AND THE UNITED TRIBES OF SAC AND FOX INDIANS

      Washington, 1805. Dbd. Near fine. In a half morocco box. The original printing of the important 1804 treaty made between William Henry Harrison and Sac (Sauk) and Fox chiefs at St. Louis, through which the Sauk and Fox were coerced into ceding the greater part of their lands to the United States. Four years before the treaty was signed, William Henry Harrison was appointed governor of Indiana Territory, in which one of his immediate tasks was to obtain minor cessions of Indian territory along the Illinois River. In August 1804 a handful of white squatters were killed in a fight on Sauk and Fox hunting grounds about forty miles north of St. Louis, providing Harrison with an excuse to prosecute a much larger demand in that region. In late October, Quashquame, a minor Sauk chief, and other "head men" of the Sauk and Fox arrived in St. Louis for a council with Harrison, bringing with them one of the accused killers, who was immediately put behind bars. After a week of pleading for his release and drinking heavily at the local grog shops, Quashquame and his delegation were assembled before Harrison on Nov. 3, "confused, intimidated, and either drunk or hung over" (Channick, p.8). To their surprise and befuddlement, the Indians were read the present land treaty, which they were expected to sign that day with their marks. The 2,000-word treaty traded the Sauk and Fox's rights to 23,000 square miles of their lands in present-day Illinois, Wisconsin, and Missouri, for the "friendship and protection" of the United States together with a one-time payment of goods worth $2,234.50, and annual payments worth $1000. Herbert S. Channick notes in his 1998 ILLINOIS HERITAGE article on the subject that considering "that their winter fur catch was reputed to have brought the Sauk and Fox as much as $60,000 in a single season, the deal was preposterous on its face" (pp.8-9). One of the country's great swindles for Indian lands in the Mississippi Valley, helping set the stage for the Black Hawk War of 1832. An excessively rare document, as are most Indian treaties printed before the burning of Washington in 1814 and the emergence of the U.S. Congressional Serial Set in 1817. Two copies are listed between Sabin, Shaw & Shoemaker, and OCLC, at the Massachusetts Historical Society and the British Museum.
