        Raccolta di prospettive...inventate da Antonio Basoli...disegnate da Francesco Cocchi...incise da diversi scuolari

      1810. BASOLI, Antonio. Raccolta di Prospettive Serie, Rustiche, E di Paesaggio, Dedicate al Merito di Alcuni Mecenati, Professori, Amatori di Belle Arti, Ed Amici...inventate da Antonio Basoli...disegnate da Francesco Cocchi...incise da diversi scuolari... Title-page with vignette followed by 102 numbered and signed etched plates. Oblong folio, 380 x 460 mm, bound in contemporary Italian quarter calf over marbled boards. Bologna: [the Author], 1810. |~||~||~||~| First Edition of this grand neo-classic view book illustrated with large oblong etched plates designed to be coloured by aspiring artists, students from the Art Academy, and art lovers. The etched plates were purposefully designed and printed "a semplice contorno" -- with simple lines -- so that individual plates could be watercoloured. An intriguing concept for artistic training, architectural and perspective instruction, and for documenting the prevailing subject matter used by contemporary artists, interior decorators and theatrical set designers. The views include imaginary cityscapes and landscapes in Italy, among which the "Gran Veglio" from Dante; prisons based on Piranesi's Carceri; American rustic cabins and indigenous Indian architectural structures; imaginary Egyptian and classical Roman buildings, plazas and interiors; Chinese and Arabian palaces, mosques and plazas; catacombs; landscape gardens; Grand Tour towns and romantic landscape views; classical ruins; Romantic rustic scenes; and numerous imaginary architectural constructs. The premise that these expansive plates would have been fully coloured is compelling. Well executed, the result could be both magnificent and inspired. The taste is completely of its time. Several etchings provide reference in the legends to theatrical and operatic performances. Many of these images certainly can be traced to the grand theatrical scenery at La Scala being designed by Alessandro Sanquirico (1777-1849). Antonio Basoli (1774-1848) was a Bolognese artist and member of the Reale Accademia di Belle Arte in Bologna, who is best known for his work in the theatre set design; he was greatly inspired by the work of Sanquirico in Milan, and some of which is recorded in his Collezione de Varie Scene Teatrali. Francesco Cocchi, who rendered Basoli's designs for this book, was his apprentice. The etchings were done by students of Basoli, Cocchi, and another professor, Francesco Rosaspina -- an art school effort in entirety. Scarce work; due to the stated intention on the title-page that this work was meant to be dismembered and the individual plates coloured, few copies seemed to have survived. Plates I, XXXIV, and XLVII on different paper stock. Rebacked with original spine laid down. PROVENANCE: Large "B" inscribed in upper outer corner of front pastedown. Berlin Katalog 4165. Brunet I, 692.

        An amazing content letter. Hull dispels rumors of a war with France but despairs of further help for the Navy from Congress: "?we have news to day Bonaparte has Clasp't his Paw on the American Property at St. Sabastians and that he is about to Declare War against the United States"

      n.p., March 5, 1810. 7.75" x 9.75". "Autograph Letter Signed, ""I Hull,"" and ""I H,"" in the postscript, 2 pages, front and verso, 7.75"" x 9.75"", [Boston], March 5, 1810 to a fellow officer discussing rumors of a French declaration of war against the U.S., problems in securing more funding for the Navy from Congress and his correspondent's prospects for a promotion. Toned at extreme margins with minor wear, light folds, a few minor mounting remnants on second page not affecting text, else very good. Hull's letter reads in large part: ""Since writing the enclosed Letter [not present] I have been informed by the Dept. that his Services are necessary at this place for the present but when the other Ship is on[ce?] fitted out. I may Expect Either the Congress or Constellation - we have news to day Bona[parte] has Clasp't his Paw on the American Property at St. Sabastians [sic] and that he is about to Declare War against the United States. We have also a rumor that Great Britain is about to send another Minister to the United States - we are now a Long time without news from Europe that can be depended on - report Says to day that all Spain has fallen Expect Cadiz This however I think is correct?" ""Gibbon[?] has received your letter he is now at Portland, but not very pleased[?]- my Letters form Washington Express doubts whether much will be done for the Navy."" While admitting that the navy's efforts to obtain increased funding ""will find enemies in the house ?"Thank god however Randolph is not there - ""Write me soon and often and if I can send you an notions from New England you have only to command me - Letters from Malta say all our Friends are well - Admiral Keats is governor - Ball is dead. Higgins is living like a rabol[?] but has lost all his flesh from having a Pretty Wife. he lives in the Country. I understand he wishes to come to this Country - our Friends at Naples "" Hull then adds a short postscript updating his correspondent on family news and the possibility for a future promotion: ""Tell W. among his family is all well but I have not been able to se[e] them lately owing to the hole[?] he left me with - I have since a cough and fever I think you have a better chance for Promotion than you have had for many years - Bainbridge has a Cough - Capt Nicholson is not long for this country - So you may look out for better times"" According to various reports coming from Europe, Napoleon had ordered the property of all neutral ships (including U.S. vessels) at Spanish ports to be seized. These actions appeared to indicate that Bonaparte was planning to declare war against the United States?"a rumor that proved to be unfounded (""MORE SEIZURES"" The Repertory, Boston, March 6, 1810, p. 2). At the start of 1810, Hull, who was then in command of the Boston Navy Yard overseeing the repairs to the frigate Chesapeake, applied to the Navy Department for a command. To this, Secretary of the Navy Paul Hamilton responded on February 20, 1810 that he was to ""Remain at Boston for the present. Your services may be highly useful at that place in superintending the repairs of the Chesapeak,"" assuring the commodore that when a command became available, it would be granted to him (Paul Hamilton to Isaac Hull, Feb. 20, 1810, quoted in Garnder W. Allen, ed., Commodore Hull: Papers, 1929, p. 12). That spring, the Navy Department assigned Hull to the frigate President in a squadron commanded by John Rogers (commanding the Constitution). Because Rogers preferred the President, the two captains traded ships before spending the season cruising the eastern seaboard. Funding for the Navy was a perennial concern, but especially following Jefferson's two terms in office. Jefferson, never a proponent of a strong army or navy, practically mothballed many of the frigates constructed in the 1790s, preferring to use smaller gunboats for defensive purposes. However, the continual conflicts with the Barbary states of North Africa ensured that at least a few of those frigates would remain in service, so when war between the United States and Great Britain broke out in 1812, the country was not completely unprepared. We have yet to determine to which Randolph Hull refers. While Thomas Mann Randolph, Thomas Jefferson's son-in-law, had recently left Congress, another Jefferson ally, John Randolph (who remained in Congress at the time of Hull's writing), remained in the House."

        A Brief Account of the Colony of Port Jackson, in New South Wales; Its Native Inhabitants, Productions, &c. &c. with An Interesting Account of The Murder of Mr. Clode, late of that settlement, as communicated by the Rev. Richard Johnstone, late Chaplain of the Colony, to Joseph Hardcastle, Esq., Treasurer of the Missionary Society

      Dublin: for the author, 1810. Slim octavo, 24 pp., half red morocco by Aquarius, a fine copy. A disgruntled version of events. Sixth edition, printed in Dublin, and very rare; a disgruntled account of Governor Hunter's administration written by George Bond, a disgraced Ensign of the New South Wales Corps.Bond shipped to Port Jackson on the Barwell in 1797. In the course of the voyage he was implicated in an attempted mutiny, and arrived in Port Jackson in chains. Ordered to face a court-martial, his commanding officer Major Foveaux interceded on his behalf, and Governor John Hunter agreed to accept Bond's resignation of his commission instead, demanding that he return to England immediately.Eager to acquit himself, Bond took to print as soon as he returned to England, first publishing this important account in Southampton in 1803. 'Bond gives an account of the operation of the convict system and the economic corruption in the colony, and describes early efforts to encourage free settlers. As well, he includes comments on the Aborigines and on natural history. All in all there is a wealth of personal observation. Bond's account, in any edition, is a worthy and important addition to a collection' (Australian Rare Books). Bond therefore presents the other side of the story of transportation to Port Jackson. His account of the new colony also highlights the issues which were to evolve into a deep rift between Bligh and Macarthur, problems that ultimately led to the appointment of Governor Macquarie.Quite apart from its interest as a very early private account of Port Jackson, this book is significant for printing a lengthy letter from the Reverend Richard Johnston, regarding the murder of the missionary Samuel Clode in Sydney.The self-published book was successful and ran into seven small editions, each printed in differing places. Any edition of this important work is very scarce - the first, fifth, and sixth edition are all equally rare - and no copies of the second or third editions are recorded. Ferguson lists only two copies of this sixth edition. No copies are added in the Addenda and the Mitchell and National Library copies remain the sole institutional holdings of the sixth edition to this day.

        A Treatise On Magic; Or, The Intercourse Between Spirits And Men

      Quitman, Frederick Henry. A Treatise On Magic; Or, The Intercourse Between Spirits And Men. Albany: 1810"Presentation copy from - the author - on front blank recto."Balance Press, 1810. 12mo, contemporary professionally re-backed ¼ marbled boards, gilt-ruled spine; internally clean & crisp. Early owner's signature at head of title. Presentation copy signed by "the author" on front blank recto. Housed in a Period ¼ Sheep Clamshell gilt spine. American Imprints 21169 (4 copies).This book looks into the history and beginnings of Magic in good and evil and in entertainment, from all periods and religions, covering Egyptian and Greek mythology to superstitions Witchcraft, Sorcery and much more, with pages 61 ?" 76 of annotations wonderfully explained and referencing back to the full explanations within the book. The Rev. Dr. Frederick Henry Quitman, the son of Stephen Henry and Anna Quitman, was born August 7, 1760, in the Duchy of Cleves in Westphalia [on an island!], in the lower Rhine. His father held an important office in the Prussian Government. The son, manifesting at an early age a great love for books, more than common intelligence, and superior talents and application to study, was placed by his father, into the celebrated school of Halle. After receiving the advantage of a liberal education Henry then transferred to Halle University. Under the guidance of George Christian Knapp (1753-1825), August Herman Niemeyer (1754-1828), Johann Salomo Semler (1725-1791), and other eminent professors in that distinguished seat of [Pietist, then Aufklarung Rationalist ] learning. For more than thirty years Dr. Quitman divided his time among a number of small and scattered Lutheran churches in the Hudson River Valley. These congregations were dispersed groupings of German speaking farmers and craftsmen. At the time there was a profound shortage of German speaking Lutheran pastors willing to serve in the rustic wilds of New York. Dr. Quitman often preached seven or eight times a week in either German, Low Dutch, or English. "In is preaching he was brief, biblical, practical and impressive inculcating with great energy the Christian gospel... [and] He never used a manuscript in the pulpit." First in the associated churches of Schoharie and Kobles Kill [until 1798 ]; and afterwards in those of Rhinebeck, Wurtemburg, Germantown, and Livingston.

        [K. 527]. Il Dissoluto Punito osia Il Don Giovanni Dramma giocoso in due Atti... Ridotto per il Pianoforte da C. G. Neefe. [Piano-vocal score]

      Hamburgo: Giovanni Augusto Böhme [without PN]. [ca. 1810]. Oblong folio. Contemporary half vellum with green marbled boards, decorative white cut paper label in the shape of a goblet with manuscript titling to upper. 1f. (pictorial title with vignette depicting a scene from the opera engraved by Wolf), [i] (blank), [i] (cast list and contents, grouped in four acts, in Italian but with German incipits only), 3-205 pp. Engraved. Watermark: "FCD" and fleur de lys with crown. Paper with a greenish cast. Printed text underlay in Italian and German; stage directions in German only. Musical numbers reordered and grouped in four acts. Boards slighty worn; rubbed and bumped at edges and corners; upper hinge split. Repair to small tear to lower outer corner of first page of music; one leaf dampstained. Sharp added in pencil to p. 183. A very good copy overall. . Later edition. Rare Köchel 6, p. 598. Hoboken 11, 345 and plate 181 (same watermark as present copy). Hamburg, ?-ffentliche Bücherhallen (municipal library). RISM M4508. Böhme published several editions of the piano-vocal score; Köchel does not distinguish among them. RISM M4509 is not credited to Neefe; the copy at the Royal Danish Library in Copenhagen carries plate number 42. RISM M4510 (including Hirsch IV, 131) and the copy at the Staats- und Stadtbibliothek Augsburg are also different: the credit to Neefe is lacking; the word "Pianoforte" is misspelled "Pianoforto"; the contents are arranged in the original two acts (as suggested by the title) rather than the spurious four, and one number, the duet of Zerlina and Don Ottavio, "Ach Schätzchen, lass mich laufen" (i.e., "Restate qua"; composed later) is added; also, Hirsch cites plate number 300; not in the Augsburg copy, and a pagination running to 209. The pictorial title is basically the same as that of the first edition of the full score by Breitkopf & Härtel (1801); only the line crediting the reduction and the imprint are new.

        THE HISTORY OF LITTLE FANNY, Exemplified in a Series of Figures

      S. and J. Fuller, London 1810 - Pp. [2], 15, [1], [2].Fifteen numbered pages of rhyming text, verso of final page blank, both front and rear original blanks present. Illustrated by accompanying hand-painted printed card doll figures; there are seven outfits; and a head (there are no removable hats in this copy - see note below). The book and figures are housed in a contemporary vellum slipcase with the title "Little Fanny" in manuscript to the front panel. The card wrappers of the book are in remarkably good condition, internally the book is very good, a little reading wear and minimal staining to the edges of a few pages, the original ribbon is not present, the figures are in very good bright condition, the top part of a dolls head being carried by Fanny is missing in one figure and the same figure has had a small part of the base replaced in hand-drawn facsimile with hand colouring (not recent). Overall a very good first edition copy. (Bibliographical note: we also have an 1811 (seventh edition) of this work and it has been useful to compare directly the two editions. It is interesting to note that whilst the figures are ostensibly the same the printing of them is quite different - the later edition is bolder with additional lines engraved; additionally the way the outline of the figures have been cut out differs too. One might suspect that the number of additional items such as hats etc. differed too between editions - and what the publisher had available at any one time.)

        [Kitab al-ifadah wa-al-i'tibar fi al-umur al-mushahadah wa-al-hawadith al-mu'ayanah bi-ard Misr]. Relation de l'Egypte par Abd-Allatif, medecin arabe de Baghdad; suivie de divers extraits d'ecrivains orientaux, et d'un etat des provinces et des villages de l'Egypte dans le XIVe siecle [...].

      Paris, de l'Imprimerie Imperiale / Treuttel & Würtz, 1810.. Large 4to (262 x 202 mm). XXIV, 752 pp. WIth title vignette. Contemp. half calf over marbled boards, siltstamped title to gilt spine.. First French edition of this account of Egypt, translated and annotated by the orientalist Silvestre de Sacy, who added other significant texts, such as "Etat des provinces et des villages de l'Egypte, dresse en l'annee 1376, sous le regne du Sultan Melic-Alaschraf Schaban". Abd al-Latif (1162-1231), known as Ibn al-Labbad or Ibn Nukta, was a philosopher, physician, historian, and a literary man. He was one of the most prolific Arab writers, but of the numerous works ascribed to him, mostly on medicine, only his graphic and detailed account of Egypt has survived. In his edition Silvestre de Sacy provides many valuable notes to this text, the first translation into French. Abd al-Latif was educated in Baghdad, turned to philosophy and the works of Ibn Sina, visited Mosul and then Damascus and the camp of Salah al-Din outside Akka, where he met Baha' al-Din ibn Shadad and Imad al-Din al-Isfahani, the famous Arabic chroniclers of the Crusades. He went on to Cairo and travelled between there and Syria, especially Aleppo. His work was widely known in Europe and translated into Latin and German. Edward Pococke junior was responsible for a Latin version of part of the text, later issued with the Arabic by Thomas Hyde in a very scarce Oxford 1702 editio; the Latin version was continued by Joseph White in another bilingual edition (Tübingen 1789; Oxford 1800). A German version by S. F. Günther Wahl followed in 1790. The first Arabic edition did not appear until 1869 (Cairo, 1286 AH). - Boards slightly worn. Top corner of title page repaired (not affecting text) and small printed sticker with caution against blasphemy; near-contemp. ownership "Lindgren" on pastedown. Insignificant spotting and a few pencil annotations in margins. A good copy. - Brunet I, 9. Gay, 1908. Zarkali 4, p. 61. Ellis, Arabic Books in the British Museum I, 48. Cf. Garrison 1768 (cites White's bi-lingual Arabic/Latin Oxford edition of 1806). Ibrahim-Hilmy I, 3. Sarton II, 2, p. 599.

Juni 1810 datierten Brief an Robert von Langer in München schreibt Koch, er habe „ein Werk Italienischer Gegenden auf Assoziation zu radieren angefangen". Die für den Verkauf bestimmte Folge stellt Gegenden aus Rom und dessen Umgebung dar. Ursprünglich hatte der Künstler vor, die Suite über die 20 Blatt hinaus auszudehnen. Wegen fehlender Kupferplattenwurde das Projekt jedoch mit der Vollendung der zwanzigsten Platte eingestellt. Die „Römischen ansichten" sind die letzten druckgraphischen Arbeiten des Künstlers, der sich fortan nur noch der Ölmalerei widmete.

        The New Practical Navigator; being a Complete Epitome of Navigation: to which are added, all the Tables Requisite for determining the latitude and longitude at sea: containing the different kinds of sailing, and necessary corrections for lee-way, variation, &c. exemplified in a Journal at Sea etc.

      F. and C. Rivington, G. Wilkie and J. Robinson etc, London. 1810 - Eighteenth edition, enlarged and carefully improved, by Joseph Dessiou. Octavo. pp.xvi, 336 + tables. 8 engraved plates including a frontispiece portrait, maps, charts, Hadley's quadrant and sextant, "a first rate ship of war"; at the rear are two folding planispheres of the stars. Quarter leather with marbled boards. The endpapers and blanks are densely filled with notes of a navigational nature, in Swedish, and in an exquisitely fine hand, such that they add to, rather than detract from, the book's condition. The majority of the notes date from 1867. The tables at the rear are unnumbered but an approximate guess would put them in the region of 200 pages - they concern difference of latitude and departure, logarithms, artificial sines, tangents, and secants, finding the latitude by two altitudes of the sun, high water, &c. One page has been extensively repaired but is complete. Very good. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
