         A Voyage from England to India, in the Year MDCCLIV, and an Historical Narrative or the Operations of the Squadron and Army in India, under the Command of Vice-Admiral Watson and Colonel Clive... Also, a Journey from Persia to England, by an Unusual Route.

      London: Edward and Charles Dilly, 1773. 4to. xii, 506 pp. b/w folding maps and plates. From 1753 to 1757 Ives was Surgeon aboard the "Kent," flagship of vice admiral Watson in the East Indies. His book includes an account of Geriah Fort (now Vijaydurg), a notorious pirate stronghold. Watson and Clive seized the town and burned the pirate ships. Ives' "unusual" return route took him through Basra, Baghdad, Mosul, Aleppo, Cyprus and Leghorn. The work also includes appendices on military and tropical medicine, medical botany, and epidemiology. According to the DNB "Ives' presence at many of the transaction he describes and his personal intimacy with Watson gives his historical narrative an unusual importance, and his accounts of the manners and customs of the inhabitants, and of ther products of the countries he visited, are those of an enlightened and acute observer." - DNB Vol 29, p. 79. See also Cox I, p. 299. This is an excellent copy. The folding maps are linen-backed and the 13 plates are clean and fresh. It has been rebound in full mottled calf with raised bands, gilt spine decorations, leather label, and an embossed image of a ship on the front board - a well done and unusual binding, befitting Ives' Unusual Route. The most recent copy to appear at auction brought 3500 pounds in 2016. The Brooke-Hitching copy sold for 4000 pounds in 2014.

         A Journal of a Voyage to the South Seas, in His Majesty's ship, the 'Endeavour'. Faithfully transcribed from the Papers of the late Sydney Parkinson, Draughtsman to Joseph Banks, Esq. on his late Expedition, with Dr Solander, round the World

      London, Printed for Stanfield Parkinson, the Editor, 1773. Imperial quarto, xxiv (last blank), 212, [2] (errata and directions to the binder) pages plus a frontispiece portrait, a map and 26 plates. Recent antique-style full calf, retaining the early sides (displaying suitable signs of the times) and the old endpapers (a little blemished), and probably retaining the early boards, judging by the profile of the corners; minimal foxing; some offsetting from the plates (as usual); one plate with a sealed tear in the blank margin; a clean, crisp, wide-margined copy, in excellent condition overall. An unauthorised account of Cook's first voyage by Sydney Parkinson, the young natural history draughtsman engaged by Joseph Banks. '[Parkinson] died at Batavia of dysentery 26th January, 1771, on the homeward voyage. His brother Stanfield, to anticipate Hawkesworth's account of the voyage, hurriedly published this journal. After a few copies had appeared the further issue was stopped by an injunction in Chancery, on the score of infringement of Dr Hawkesworth's rights, and of material belonging to Mr Banks' (Hocken, page 13). The superb engraved plates that illustrate this lavish publication (chiefly portraits of South Sea islanders and views from the voyage) were produced from drawings done by Parkinson in his spare time and claimed by Stanfield on the return of the voyage. Parkinson's work on the voyage, in particular his numerous botanical drawings and watercolours, was retained by Banks, and formed the basis of his 'Florilegium'. Beddie 712; Hocken, page 12; Hill 1308.

         Traité des fiefs de Dumoulin, analysé et conféré avec les autres feudistes.

      Paris, Valade 1773 - in-4, [4] ff. n. ch. (faux-titre & titre, dédicace à Molé de Champlâtreux), iv-717 pp., [2] pp. n. ch. de privilège, maroquin vieux-rouge, dos à nerfs orné de guirlandes et caissons fleurdelisés dorés, armes au centre, pièce de titre verte, encadrement de triple filet doré sur les plats, double filet doré sur les coupes, tranches dorées, dentelle intérieure (reliure de l'époque). Unique édition. Si l'on en croit la longue notice que Dupin consacre, pour une fois, à ce titre, l'ouvrage parut sans l'épître dédicatoire à Molé de Champlâtreux, qui, après de multiples examens par la censure, la lieutenance de police, etc. aurait fortement déplu au chancelier Maupeou. De fait, les exemplaires des dépôts publics (dans la mesure où on daigne en donner une collation .) semblent ne pas la comprendre. Notre exemplaire la comporte parce que c'est celui du dédicataire lui-même ; est-ce l'unique ? il est tentant de le penser, mais, dans ce domaine, il ne faut jurer de rien . Ayant déjà présenté en 1769 un Eloge de Du Moulin, Pierre-Paul-Nicolas Henrion de Pansey (1742-1829), spécialisé tôt dans les matières féodales, donna logiquement ce commentaire très complet sur le principal ouvrage de son devancier dans ce domaine. Bientôt, la Révolution allait renvoyer cette première partie de sa carrière dans l'histoire du droit, et il dut, sous le Directoire et le Consulat, réorienter radicalement son oeuvre théorique. Dupin, 1574. Précieux et bel exemplaire aux armes du dédicataire Mathieu-François Molé de Champlâtreux (1705-1793), premier président du Parlement de Paris, démissionnaire en 1763 par suite d'un refus de courtiser Madame de Pompadour. Il est possible que cet exemplaire de présent n'ait cependant jamais été remis à Molé, ce qui expliquerait sa transmission en-dehors de la famille (cf. infra). O.H.R. 260 (variante). L'ouvrage passa ensuite dans la collection de Edmond Lafond (1821-1875, vignette ex-libris), homme de lettres passablement abondant, lequel, dans une note manuscrite, explique que l'auteur était ami intime de son grand-père, Jean-Marie Harlé d'Ophove (1765-1838).

Soweit möglich bemührt er sich um Zuschreibungen, die auch am Ende durch ein Register erschlossen sind. - Unter dem Titel "Anzeige derer Gemählde." erschien erst ein Jahr später noch ein separater Tafelband, der jedoch als unabhängiges Werk gilt und auch in den neueren Facsimile-Ausgaben nicht reproduziert ist. - DABEI: Casanova, Giovanni Battista.

(Cicognara 99), der im Jahr zuvor erstmals in italienischer Sprache erschienen war und neben allgemeinen Bemerkungen zur Kunst und dem Sammeln vor allem eine Beschreibung der Dresdner Antiken enthält, für die Giovanni Battista Casanova (1730-1795) ab 1776 auch als Direktor der Dresdner Kunstakademie zuständig war (gemeinsam mit Zeissig genannt Schenau). Casanova, jüngerer Bruder des sprichwörtlichen Abenteurers und Erotomanen, galt als einer der bedeutendsten Zeichner und besten Kopisten seiner Zeit. Er hatte unter anderem bei Mengs studiert und unterrichtete dann z.B. Angelika Kauffmann und Winckelmann, der ihn die Zeichnungen für seine "Monumenti antichi inediti" anfertigen liess und ihn den "grössten Zeichner in Rom" nannte. Zu den hier beschriebenen antiken Kunstwerken (meist Statuen, aber auch Münzen, Reliefs u.a.) nennt er oft interessanterweise auch die Ankaufspreise. - Dieses Exemplar hat auf dem ersten Titel verso einen kleinen alten Bibliotheksstempel, auf dem Vorsatz ein altes Wappen-Exlibris: "Zur Gräfl. vom Hagen'schen Majorats-Bibliothek Möckern gehörig. No 3899". Es handelt sich um ein "enteignetes Exemplar, restituiert an Rechtsnachfolger", dann von diesem verkauft.

The text with 24 plates and charts as called for, with two large folding maps and 61 plates. Some offsetting and overall light wear, a clean attractive set overall. Captain Cook's Voyages are an iconic symbol of discovery and served not only to contribute to many diverse fields of knowledge, but also to inspire many who followed after him. "He was really the first scientific navigator" (Hill) and the only explorer during this time to lead three circumnavigations. The knowledge accumulated during these explorations greatly expanded the awareness of the world's geography, and his writings, maps, and drawings significantly aided in future navigations, making sea travel much more certain and educating the general public. Cook's first voyage sailed from England in 1768, rounded Cape Horn and continued westward to arrive in Tahiiti in April of 1769, where the Royal Society had engaged Cook to observe the transit of Venus across the Sun. He then sailed to New Zealand, mapping the complete coastline and then travelling to Australia, where his expedition became the first recorded Europeans to encounter the eastern coastline. The voyage was fraught with many perils, including being nearly ship-wrecked on the Great Barrier Reef and losing many of the crew to malaria in modern day Indonesia, but they were able to finally sail past the Cape of Good Hope and return to England in 1771. Cook's second voyage took place between 1772-1775, with a mission to search for the hypothetical Terra Australis. Cook crossed the Antarctic Circle for the first time in history and thought he disproved the existence of the "Great Southern Continent." He actually almost reached Antarctica on one occasion, but then turned towards Tahiti for supplies. In Cook's third voyage (1776-79), his aim was to search for the North-West Passage through the American continent. He charted the American west coast from Northern California through the Bering Straight. "Cook was the first navigator to accurately map the coast, and, by carrying away a collection of furs, he introduced the fur trade to the English and American traders, whose subsequent expeditions were based upon his discoveries no other contemporaneously printed source narrative is of comparable importance" (Eberstadt). On this voyage, he also discovered the Hawaiian Islands, which he named the Sandwich Islands. Cook died during this third voyage on the Hawaiian islands. With the publication of the first two voyages, and his dramatic death in Hawaii, James Cook became a national hero. So eagerly awaited was his account of the third voyage, that it was sold out a few days after publication. Among his accomplishments Cook discovered New Caledonia, Norfolk Island, the Isle of Pines, Sandwich Land (Hawaii) and rediscovered and charted numerous other lands. He was the first to survey New Zealand where he spent six months. He was also a pioneer in regard to the health of his men. On his second voyage, Cook lost only one man out of 118 in a voyage of more than 1000 days, one of the first to conquer scurvy. As a commander, an observer and a practical physician, his merits were equally great. He won the affection of those who served under him by sympathy, kindness and unselfish care of others, which were as noteworthy as his gifts of discovery and intellect.

         [Fore-Edge Painting] De Officiis ad Marcum Filium

      Paris (Lutetiae): Jos. Barbou, 1773. Full Morocco. Fine. Extraordinary, detailed fore-edge painting of Roman ruins on a near miniature volume. [iv], 346, [2] pp. Engraved frontispiece by N. Le Mire after J. M. Moreau. The volume size is a mere 90 by 66 mm -- few are the fore-edge paintings on such a slim, diminutive volume, and for good reason, as the small size adds to the technical challenge of creating such a painting, let alone, a painting that shows any detail. Here the painting has an obvious tie-in to the contents of the book, which is a nice feature that doesn't apply to the majority of fore-edge paintings. Other virtues of this particular volume are the beauty of the full red morocco binding, with its triple gilt ruled border, simple gilt spine decoration and gilt dentelles, and the beauty of the book itself, which no less than Spielmann deemed "A very important eighteenth century miniature book, printed with the type of Pierre Simon Fournier (1712-68), one of the great French letterfounders . . .

      Leipzig, Krauß, 1773 - 4 Bll., 280 S. 9 teils altkolorierte gefalt. Kupfertafeln. Zweite Auflage und zugleich erste illustrierte Ausgabe, selten. - Wurzbach XII, 38. - "Nikolaus Ernst or Niklos Erno Kleeman made a journey to Crimea in the years 1768-1770 and published his impressions in German in 1771. His account includes very interesting and detailed information on sailing the Danube, on his voyage overall and on social life at the regions surrounding the Black Sea. His work was translated into French in 1780. Kleeman left Vienna on a commercial ship on 6 October 1768, carrying with him the diplomatic accreditations and firmans which would permit him to travel. He mentions that a book merchant, two commanders of the royal cavalry, a Hungarian nobleman and some workmen also sailed on the same boat. According to his narrative, the travellers stopped at Presbourg for provisions, and reached Peste on 12 October by way of the cities on the Danube. Sailing the river, they stopped at Mohacs, Semlin and Belgrade. They continued their journey, crossing the Iron Gates, and also stopped at Silistra, Widdin, Kilianova and Galati at Moldavia. Finally, they reached Causeni, capital of the Tatars of Crimea, of which Kleemann gives a highly interesting description. On 30 December 1768, the Khan of the Tatars received Kleemann in audience. Kleeman stayed at the Tatar region of Crimea until the summer of 1769, and toured the region as far as Karasu. He describes the country, administration and justice system as well as commerce, weights and measures, customs and traditions of the inhabitants (Tatars, Armenians and Turks), and relates several incidents which took place during his stay. Subsequently, Kleemann left for Istanbul with the Ottoman fleet in October 1769. From Istanbul he sailed to Izmir by way of Bozcaada (Tenedos) island. In January 1769 he left Izmir and, stopping by Chios, Skyros, Methoni, Zakynthos, Corfu and Ragusa (Dubrovnik), reached Trieste and finally Vienna. The closing chapters of his narrative deal with the cities on the Danube, the militias of Tatars and Turks, and Tatar feasts" (Aikaterini Laskaridis Foundation). - Die Tafeln mit folgenden Ansichten: "Das Eiserne Thor - Kilianova - Kauschan - Das Serail in Bachlschiesaray - Caffa - [auf einem Blatt:] Prospect des zweiten Castells an den Hellespont in Europa - Prospect des ersten Castells an dem Hellespont in Asia - [auf einem Blatt:] Prospect der ersten Dardanelle - Prospect der zweiten Dardanelle".

Con ritratto e 46 tavole fuori testo disegnate da Cipriani, Cochin, Eisen, Moreau e altri ed incise in rame da Bartolozzi, Choffard, Duclos, Prevost, ecc. ciascuna protetta da velina. Splendida legatura coeva in piena pelle. Dorsi lisci con ricchi fregi e titoli in oro su tassello bicolore, piatti inquadrati da triplice ordine di filetti e con decori agli angoli. Dentelles interne, sguardie marmorizzate e tagli dorati. Minimi ritocchi alle cuffie e carte che presentano a tratti qualche rada fioritura. Esemplare peraltro marginoso, in ottimo stato di conservazione ed impreziosito da una legatura assai decorativa. Celebre edizione, per alcuni la più elegante dell'Orlando furioso, stimata soprattutto per la bellezza dei caratteri impiegati e la qualità della stampa. Tavole e ritratto in prima tiratura di stampa. Cfr. Cohen 95-97, Agnelli-Ravegnani 204-205 e Gamba (62): "...per bellezza di stampa e per merito d'intagli va risguardata questa edizione come una delle migliori produzioni della tipografia... La Vita del Poeta, scritta da Andrea Barotti, è preceduta dal ritratto di Lodovico, preso da una pittura del Tiziano. Dieci delle Tavole furono intagliate da Fr. Bartolozzi, e curiosa si è quella posta al Canto xliii. Il Bartolozzi sorpreso dall'editore nel momento che vi lavorava, e vilipeso per mancanza di sollecitudine con le parole indecenti di Asino, Poltrone, Animale, intagliò sull'istante le stesse parole in mezzo all'urna di Brandimarte. L'editore non potè ottenere ch'esse fossero mai più cancellate; e, per minor male, alla parola Asino si aggiunse una R avanti l'A, e si procurò di rendere le altre di poco chiara calligrafia".

The expedition lasted between 30 July 1768 and 12 June 1771, during which time Cook carried out running surveys of the New Zealand coast and of the east coast of Australia, the latter resulted in his discovery of Botany Bay, which was to have a significant effect on the history of that continent. ii) COOK, James. A Voyage towards the South Pole, and Round the World. Performed in His Majesty's Ships the Resolution and Adventure, in the Years 1772, 1773, 1774, and 1775. (London: W. Strahan and T. Cadell, 1777). First edition of Cook's historically most important voyage, conducted in search of the great "Terra Australis". The ships went east via the Cape of Good Hope and in three separate approaches completely circumnavigated Antarctica, also making the first recorded crossing of the Antarctic Circle. "Further visits were made to New Zealand, and on two great sweeps Cook made an astonishing series of discoveries and rediscoveries including Easter Island, the Marquesas, Tahiti and the Society Islands, Nieu, the Tonga Islands, the New Hebrides, New Caledonia, Norfolk Island, and a number of smaller islands. Rounding Cape Horn Cook discovered and charted South Georgia, after which he called at Cape Town, St Helena and Ascencion, and the Azores" (Hill). In addition to the geographical, botanical and cultural discoveries of the voyage, Cook also deals with the organisational problems of an expedition on such a large scale: he was "probably the first sea captain to realize the important of preserving the health and well-being of his crew. He did everything possible to maintain their physical fitness and the cleanliness of both men and ships. He conquered the hitherto prevalent scurvy by cutting down the [Attributes: First Edition]

         A Journal of the Voyage to the South Seas, in His Majesty's ship, the Endeavour. Faithfully transcribed from the Papers of the Late Sydney Parkinson, Draughtsman to Joseph Banks, esq. on his Late Expedition with Dr. Solander, round the World. Embellished with Views and Designs, delineated by the Author, and engraved by Capital Artists.

      London: for Stanfield Parkinson, the Editor, 1773 - Royal quarto (331 x 256 mm). Contemporary tree calf, skilfully rebacked with the original smooth spine laid down, compartments gilt with central urn-and-flower motifs and foliate cornerpieces, red morocco label, With the errata leaf. Bookplate of Edward, Lord Suffield, to the front pastedown. Sides lightly scuffed, faint offsetting from plates, but an excellent copy, remarkably crisp and clean, with generous margins. Engraved portrait frontispiece after James Newton, 27 numbered plates depicting scenery, South Sea Islanders and their accoutrements, including the famous image of "Two Natives of New Holland advancing to Combat" and a map of New Zealand. First edition, large-paper copy, of one of the principal visual accounts of Cook's first voyage, by "the first European artist to set foot on Australian soil, to draw an authentic Australian landscape, and to portray Aboriginals from direct observation" (ADB). Parkinson joined Cook's expedition as natural history draughtsman at the behest of Sir Joseph Banks, and "with great diligence and flair made at least 1300 drawings, many more than Banks had expected" which also included some of the earliest European views of the South Pacific. His valuable observations include the first published use of the word "kangaroo" (as "kangooroo", p. 149), and his vocabularies of South Sea languages cover the "languages of Otaheite, New Zealand, New Holland, Savoo, and Sumatra the Malayan language spoken at Batavia, called the low Malay, and the language of Anjenga on the coast of Malabar, called the high or proper Malay" (Hill). After exploring Tahiti, New Zealand, Australia, and the Great Barrier Reef, the expedition reached Batavia, where Parkinson contracted malaria and dysentery, dying shortly after the departure for the Cape of Good Hope. Following the expedition's return to London, Parkinson's brother Stanfield set about preparing his notes and sketches for publication, contrary to an agreement with Banks, who had lent them to him strictly for personal use. Hawkesworth obtained an injunction in chancery to delay publication until after the appearance of his official account, and John Fothergill, a friend of the Parkinson family, was brought in to mediate. Hawkesworth published in June 1773, making free and unacknowledged use of Parkinson's material apparently by way of retaliation, whereupon the injunction was lifted and Stanfield's publisher brought out the journal, "with a preface ghosted by a Dr Kenrick scurrilously misrepresenting Banks's actions. Appalled by Stanfield's abuse of his good offices, Fothergill bought up some 400 copies remaining of the imprint and, following Stanfield's insanity and death, obtained the rights to the journal, which at his request was republished after his death by his friend Lettsom in 1784, complete with a measured riposte to the earlier preface" (ODNB). An excellent copy of "the most handsome of the unofficial accounts of Cook's first voyage" (Parks), with rich impressions of the superb plates.

         Orlando furioso.

      da’ Torchj di G. Baskerville per P. Molini,, Birmingham, 1773 - Quattro volumi di cm. 23,5, pp. (2) 4, lviii, 362; (2) 450 (26); (2) 446; (2) 446 (2). Con ritratto e 46 tavole fuori testo disegnate da Cipriani, Cochin, Eisen, Moreau e altri ed incise in rame da Bartolozzi, Choffard, Duclos, Prevost, ecc. ciascuna protetta da velina. Splendida legatura coeva in piena pelle. Dorsi lisci con ricchi fregi e titoli in oro su tassello bicolore, piatti inquadrati da triplice ordine di filetti e con decori agli angoli. Dentelles interne, sguardie marmorizzate e tagli dorati. Minimi ritocchi alle cuffie e carte che presentano a tratti qualche rada fioritura. Esemplare peraltro marginoso, in ottimo stato di conservazione ed impreziosito da una legatura assai decorativa. Celebre edizione, per alcuni la più elegante dell’Orlando furioso, stimata soprattutto per la bellezza dei caratteri impiegati e la qualità della stampa. Tavole e ritratto in prima tiratura di stampa. Cfr. Cohen 95-97, Agnelli-Ravegnani 204-205 e Gamba (62): ".per bellezza di stampa e per merito d’intagli va risguardata questa edizione come una delle migliori produzioni della tipografia. La Vita del Poeta, scritta da Andrea Barotti, è preceduta dal ritratto di Lodovico, preso da una pittura del Tiziano. Dieci delle Tavole furono intagliate da Fr. Bartolozzi, e curiosa si è quella posta al Canto xliii. Il Bartolozzi sorpreso dall’editore nel momento che vi lavorava, e vilipeso per mancanza di sollecitudine con le parole indecenti di Asino, Poltrone, Animale, intagliò sull’istante le stesse parole in mezzo all’urna di Brandimarte. L’editore non potè ottenere ch’esse fossero mai più cancellate; e, per minor male, alla parola Asino si aggiunse una R avanti l’A, e si procurò di rendere le altre di poco chiara calligrafia".

         A Dictionary of the English Language: In Which the Words are Deduced from their Originals, and Illustrated in their Different Significations by Examples from the Best Writers.the Fourth Edition, Revised by the Author.

      - London: Printed by W. Strahan, For W. Strahan, J. & F. Rivington.MDCCLXXIII (1773) 2 vols., folio, 580 leaves; 592 leaves; title printed in red and black. Rebacked contemporary tree calf, five raised bands, backstrip with red and black morocco labels with titling stamped in gilt. Board edges somewhat rubbed, minor scattered foxing and shelfwear, two separate ink signatures to title-page; very good. Fourth edition and final folio edition to be revised by Johnson. Strahan drew up his printing account for 1,250 copies of this edition. This edition comprises the culmination of all of Johnson's work and revisions during his lifetime, and has the most textual value, as he echoes in the advertisement for this edition, "Perfection is unattainable, but nearer and nearer approaches may be made; and finding my Dictionary about to be reprinted, I have endeavored, by a revisal, to make it less reprehensible. I will not deny that I found many parts requiring emendation, and many more capable of improvement. Many faults I have corrected, some superfluities I have taken away, and some deficiencies I have supplied. I have methodified some parts that were disordered, and illuminated some that were obscure." Johnson's Dictionary was viewed as the prominent dictionary of its time, and the foremost on the English language until the Oxford English Dictionary was published almost 200 years later. Unlike most modern dictionaries Johnson included humor and prejudice into many definitions: "Oats. n.s. [aten, Saxon.] A grain, which in England is generally given to horses, but in Scotland supports the people." Fleeman 55.4D/4a. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Der Geistliche Don Quixote, oder Gottfried Wildgoosens den Sommer über angestellte Wanderschaft. Ein komischer Roman. Aus dem Englischen. 3 Theile in 3 Bänden.

      Leipzig, Weidmanns Erben u. Reich, 1773. - circa 16,5 x 10,5 cm. Mit 3 gestochenen Frontisp. und 3 gest. Titelvignetten von Geyser nach Mechau, zusammen etwa 1200 Seiten Halb-Leder d. Zt. mit Rückenvergoldung "Goed. IV/1, 588, 17; Hayn-G. VI, 335; Lanckoronska-Oehler 2, 32. Seltene erste deutsche Ausgabe dieses satirischen Schelmenromans, dem Hauptwerk von Graves (1715-1804), in dem er sich über die christliche Sekte der Methodisten lustig macht. Die englische Originalausgabe erschien ab 1772 unter dem Titel "The spiritual Quixote: or, the summer's ramble of Mr. Geoffry Wildgoose". Die Übersetzung stammt von Johann Gottfried Gellius (1732-1781). Der Roman karikiert zahlreiche bekannte Persönlichkeiten und hat auch autobiographische Züge. In Deutschland war der Methodismus bzw. die Wesleyanische Kirche zum Zeitpunkt des Erscheinen noch gar nicht etabliert und die von Graves karikierten Theologen John Wesley oder George Whitefield dürften in Deutschland kaum bekannt gewesen sein. " "- Titel mit altem Besitzvermerk und kleinen Notizen, etwas gebräunt, wenig fleckig, meist recht sauber. Einband berieben und etwas bestossen, dennoch recht dekorativ mit hübschen Buntpapier-Vorsätzen und dekorativen Rücken. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
