BOUND WITH: Antichità Romane de'Tempi della Republica, Parte Prima & Parte Seconda. 30 etchings, comprising 2 etched part-titles, dedication leaf, leaf of inscriptions, leaf of inscriptions and index, and 25 plates. Rome, 1748. Large Folio, 537 x 400 mm, bound in contemporary Italian calf. |~||~||~||~||~||~| A magnificent copy of the Carceri as published by Piranesi in a combination volume, as described by Andrew Robison. This is the first printing of the "dark" series of Carceri after Piranesi radically reworked the engraved plates, adding substantial details and, more particularly, heightening the light and dark tones and infusing the images with dramatic shadows and disturbing, haunting imagery. A large-margined, fresh copy on thick paper, printed and published by Piranesi himself. Piranesi originally etched a set of 14 plates during the late 1740s, issued anonymously under the title Invenzioni Capric di Carceri all Acqua Forte Datte in Luce, published in 1750. This first series must be viewed as an intensely private work, not for the audience that his Prima Parte di Architetture, e Prospettive (1743) nor his Vedute di Roma (1748-1788) were intended, i.e., visitors on the Grand Tour. The first issue etchings exhibit more purely decorative inventions that can be viewed as an experiment in a "Venetian" graphic style. However, something changed between 1750 and 1760 when Piranesi went back to the Carceri plates and began to rework them, adding extensive detail to the plates, creating two complete new engravings and, most importantly, impregnating the plates with double biting of harsh black diagonals, enclosing the spaces with nightmarish light and dark contrasts and gloomy shadows, and emphasizing the instruments of torture: chains, ropes, metal cables, iron grills, gallows, spiked wheels, powerful and sinister indistinct instruments, large block and tackle pulleys, and endless stairways heading up and down but offering no exit. "The disturbing psychological atmosphere of these architectural fantasies has caught the imagination of many artists over succeeding centuries. Their menacing, exotic atmosphere inspired the Romantics of the 19th century, while the Surrealists of the 20th century admired their irrational portrayal of objects in space" (St. Louis Public Library, The Steedman Exhibit). The numerous writers and artists that came under the spell of Piranesi's Carceri would have found but little inspiration in the early states of the Carceri series. "In this series of variations on a theme, Piranesi attacked his copperplates with a boldness and spontaneity unmatched in any other work of his time. One of his goals seems to have been a thorough exploration of the tools and techniques of the etching medium" (Metropolitan Museum of Art, Heilbrunn Timeline of Art History, The Round Tower: Plate 3 of Carceri, ca. 1749-60). Condition: Plates in superb dark impressions with considerable burr.Very fine condition with large margins, engraved plates on thick Roman paper.

         Le voyageur philosophe dans un pais inconnu aux habitans de la terre (.). Par Mr de Listonai (pseudo. de D.-J. de Villeneuve).

      - Amsterdam, Aux dépens de l'éditeur, 1761. 2 volumes in-12, plein veau marbré de l'époque, dos à 5 nerfs richement ornés de caissons fleuronnés et cloisonnés, pièces de titre de veau bordeaux, filets sur les coupes, tranches rouges, xxiv, 339 p., (1) p. d'errata et vi, 384 p. Edition originale et unique de cette utopie attribuée, à sa sortie, à Tiphaigne de La Roche ("Annales typographiques", 1762, t.II, p.165), attribution crédible. Ce n’est que par la suite que l’on attacha cet écrit à Daniel Jost de Villeneuve, auteur dont on ne sait rien. Voyage utopique dans la lune par le moyen d'un vaisseau interplanétaire. C’est sur la face cachée que les passagers découvrent le peuple des Sélénites, et, en toutes choses "le siècle des Lumières parfaitement réalisé" (A. Soboul, ‘Utopies au siècle des Lumières’) : gouvernement, urbanisme, sciences et techniques (Newton est mis à contribution), éducation, lettres et arts, économie politique, relations entre les sexes, religion Parmi les inventions on relève le "verre ductile et malléable", utilisé pour faire des meubles ou le moyen de parcourir la distance de Paris à Rouen en 48 minutes, par la suspension de l’air. Jean-Michel Racault (‘L’utopie narrative’, p. 265-269), livre une interprétation originale de cet ouvrage et de son projet social : "mettre la pulsion individualiste au service de l’harmonie sociale ( ). Pédagogie du progrès ( ) et vulgate des Lumières qui inspireront la première révolution bourgeoise". L'ouvrage a été mis à l'index en janvier 1763. (Hartig & Soboul, ‘Utopie en France au XVIIIe siècle’, n°323. Negley, 1141. 'Utopies au siècle des Lumières', 034/5. Versins, à l’article « Listonai », p. 540).

Histoire érudite et très complète des institutions d’enseignement à Paris, depuis les origines sous Charlemagne. L’auteur a pris pour base le monumental ouvrage composé en latin par Egasse du Boulay, ‘Historia Universitatis Parisiensis’ (1665-1673), en accompagnant son essai de tables particulières, par volume, d’une très importante table générale, de notes et de citations. L'auteur qui fit une longue carrière dans l’enseignement devint "Professeur Emérite de Rhétorique en l'Université de Paris, au Collège de Beauvais". ('Bibliothèque historique de la France', n°44625.

         Studholme Hodgson

      June 30, 1761. Document Signed, "S Hodgson" as Colonel of the fifth Regiment of Foot, Major General and Commander in Chief of His Majesty's Forces employed on an Expedition & dated June 30, 1761, one page, 8" X 12.5" with docketed integral leaf, addressed to Charles Bimbridge Esq. / Deputy Paymaster General, from the Palais at Belle Isle.

In full, "By Virtue of the Power and Authority to me given and granted by His Majesty in this behalf, I do hereby direct and require that out of the Treasure in your hands for the use of the Forces under my Command you do advance without deduction unto Lieutenant George King of His Majesty's Ninetieth Regiment of Foot Commanded by Lieutenant Colonel Commandant Hugh Morgan, the Sum of Six Hundred and Thirty four Pounds Five Shillings Ster. Value upon account of the Subsistence of this said Regiment, and for so doing this with the Acquittance of the said Lieut. George King shall be your Warrant and Discharge. / Given at Head Quarters Palais the 30th day of June 1761. In the first year of His Majesty's Reign. / (signed) S Hodgson / By His Excellency's Command / (signed) Th A Pincke". Light soiling and edge wear, with small splits at folds along right margin; overall near fine condition with dark, highly legible text and signature.

The Seven Years' War (1756-1763), the European counterpart to the French and Indian War (1754-1763), began officially between France and England on May 15, 1756, when England made a formal declaration of war. Actually, fighting had been going on in America for two years. The war involved all the major European powers and did not go well for England until the elder William Pitt came to power in 1756. He concentrated on fighting the French and sent badly needed troop reinforcements to North America. The Treaty of Paris, signed by Great Britain, France, and Spain on February 10, 1763, ended the Seven Years' War and its American counterpart, the French and Indian War (1754-1763). Worldwide, France was humbled and the treaty marked the start of the colonial and maritime supremacy of Great Britain. Britain's success was costly, however, and Parliament's attempt to cover its debts and to pay for a continuing military presence in America by direct taxation of the colonists soon caused strained relations between mother country and colonies. The 90th (or Colonel Morgan's) Irish Light Infantry, of 1759-63, was raised in Ireland, and the papers of the day speak in glowing terms of its fine appearance when first brought over to England. It was employed at the famous siege of Belle Isle on June 7, 1761. Protected by a fleet under Admiral Keppel, 8,000 British troops led by General Hodgeson landed under enemy fire and after difficulty forced the surrender of the garrison of Palais, the main town. British casualties were 700, many more than the French. It was was also much distinguished in June 1762 when British troops and naval units (Earl of Albemarle and Admiral Pococke) laid siege to Havana. They took Moro Castle, key to the defense, by storm and after two months captured the city. It was disbanded in England at the peace of 1763.
