        Sanjuurokkai kyouka awase shiohi no tsuto [Gifts of the Ebb Tide: A Poetry Contest on the Thirty-six Shells]

      (Edo): Tsutaya Juzaburou, 1789. Utamaro, Kitagawa. Small quarto. (20)pp. First edition. Illustrated with eight spreads by Kitagawa Utamaro. This anthology of thirty-six short poems, presented in the style of a traditional poetry contest, was written by members of the Yaegaki Circle after Akera Kankou and several members of the Circle were inspired by shells during a walk on the beach at Shinagawa. Utamaro's opening illustration is clearly drawn from this, showing families walking along the shore and gathering shells at Shinagawa, just as the poets did. The poetry is set above exquisitely detailed renderings of the shells examined in the accompanying verse. The closing scene shows a group of women gathering to play a matching game using painted clam shells. Utamaro's skillful illustrations are highlighted with mica, blind embossing, mother-of-pearl, and gold, and printed on thick hosho paper. Roger S. Keyes used images from Gifts of the Ebbtide on the dust wrapper of Ehon, The Artist and the Book in Japan, his historic exhibit of Japanese illustrated books at The New York Public Library in 2006. Keyes illustrated every page of Utamaro's masterpiece in his book and began his description of it with these words: "One of the most beautiful books ever published began with a visit to the seaside." Keyes continued in his discussion of the first edition: "The first edition of Gifts of the Ebb Tide was a triumph. No one had ever drawn shells with more authority, more sensitivity, more painstaking detail. No printers had used such a variety of textures, and none since the days of Harunobu had employed such a range of colorants or produced such an array of special effects." The second edition is what Keyes illustrated in his text. It is a matter of taste as to which edition one prefers. The second has stronger color in the woodcuts. The first has the golden screen behind the group of women. Bound in hand-painted indigo paper with expected wear and fading. Spine with Japanese cloth, in what appears to be an early repair. Impressive provenance with this copy being owned by Edmond de Goncourt, renowned collector of Utamaro's work and author of a monograph on the artist. De Goncourt wrote in red at the margin of the opening endpaper: "Exemplaire de la plus grande beautre comme triage." This copy is exceptional and very rare. (Roger S. Keyes, "Ehon: The Artist and the Book in Japan," pp. 112-123).

Stitched within original marbled wraps. Slight creasing, some loss to spine. With the bookplate of Lord Walsingham to FEP.

Intended to include what the editor 'conceives most useful to Parties who visit the place for the benefit of AIR, and for SEA BATHING; to whom, as well as to PARTIES OF PLEASURE, it is hoped this little narrative will prove an useful as well as an entertaining companion. A 25pp section on the 'present state of Weymouth' reveals the eighteenth-century origins of the town as a resort, including all seven 'Rules and Orders' of the public rooms, with 'IV. That no Lady or Gentleman be permitted to dance in coloured gloves (italics!)' and 'VIII. That Gentlemen will be pleased to leave their swords (italics!) at the door' particularly anachronistic highlights. Detail of 'The Library, in St. Thomas Street', from where this work was obtainable within the town itself, suggests a well-patronised subscription establishment: 'established upwards of sixteen years...[containing] above eight thousand volumes (italics!), in English, French, Italian &c. which may be read on the following easy terms, viz. A Subscriber by the Year, Half a Guinea. For the Season, Five Shillings'. ESTC locates only four copies worldwide (BL, St. John's College Cambridge, Getty Center and NYPL). ESTC T66350..

Bakre fals med spricka nedtill. Ur viceamiral Otto Hindric Nordenskjölds bibliotek, med hans namnteckning på båda titelbladen. Främre pärmens insida med senare Nordenskjöldars namnteckningar. Setterwall 3586 resp. 3600. Första arbetet i andra mycket ovanligare upplagan, utgiven året efter den första. Första upplagan fick censureras och två blad ersättas med kancellanser. Detta är naturligtvis även åtgärdat i denna förbättrade andra upplaga. Fredrik Georg Hierta (1746-98) deltog i örlogsflottans kampanj 1788-89 som sekundmajor. Hans ögonvittnesskildringar blev snabbt populära och första verket utkom här i en ny upplaga redan året därpå. Det andra verket är fortsättningen om krigsrörelserna 1789. De två bladen som kancellerades i första verket innehöll ett par detaljer om hertig Karl, vilka man fann alltför noggranna. Båda verken innehåller förteckningar på deltagande fartyg och dess befälhavare. Mycket bra proveniens! Otto Hindric Nordenskjöld (1747-1832) från Nyland, konteramiral och hjälte från slaget vid Hogland och det Viborgska gatloppet. Han förde under 1789-års strider befälet på chefsskeppet Gustaf III, nominellt under hertig Carl. Han blev efter kriget 1790 vice amiral men tog redan 1798 avsked. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Real Asiento de Minas de Plata de la Rivera de Caylloma.

      Important collection of manuscript documents dealing with the history and technological challenges faced by the mining in America. The mining of silver in Caylloma area has existed since the times of the Incas and it is still in production. Caylloma is situated in the middle of several rivers that originate in the high mountains that surround the town and provide abundant water for mining. The documents comprised in the archive are: Real Asiento de Minas de Plata de la Rivera de Caylloma. 1 folding hand coloured map: Plan del Rl de Minas de Sta Cruz de Caylloma, which measures 420 x 280 mm. Folding table: Real Asiento de Minas de Plata de Rivera de Caylloma. Estado que manifiesta los nombres de los trapiches y de los mineros que trabajan en ellos, el numº de Paradas que tiene, el Nº de minas que poseen, cajones de metal que venefician, la cantidad de marcos que sacan , y las libs   de azogue que consumen cada mes sacado por calculo prudente, formado en junta de todo el Gremio en 16 se mayo de 1786, de orden del Sr. Subdelegado, Dn Marco de Oxicain pa. remitir alSr. Gov.or yntendente de la Prov. De Areq.a y sus Pari.s , dn. Ant.o Albarez y Ximenez. Letter from the Guild of Miners, Caylloma, dated 21 April 1789, signed by the miners, 4 ff. Letter dated 8 June 1786 and signed by the delegado Marco de Oxicain and others. And other documents, 4 ff. of other documents. The mining of silver in Caylloma area has existed since the times of the Incas and it is still ongoing. Caylloma is situated in the middle of several rivers that originate in the high mountains that surround the town and provide abundant water for mining. Caylloma is in what is known today as the province of Caylloma, the largest of eight provinces in the Arequipa Region of Peru. Today a Caylloma mine still exists and in 2016 produced 1,3 million ounces of silver. It is one of the ten highest mines in the world (4865 metres). This collection of documents begins with an interesting hand-coloured detailed map (Plan del Rl. De Minas de Sta Cruz de Caylloma) of the area with the position of the "trapiches",   mills to crush and grind rock, and listing their names and those of the owners, of the seams, one of them of gold, stone quarries and the names of the mountain peaks 'serros'. It follows with with an exhaustive report of July 1786, Real Asiento de Minas de Plata de la Rivera de Caylloma, outlining the situation of the silver mining: it lists 37 mines with the names of their 21 owners, the number of 'cajones' of silver ore each trapiches' obtained every month, the 26 'paradas de fondos', furnaces where the ground rock was boiled with mercury, the money in 'marcos' that they were worth and the pounds of mercury they used to process the ore and how much was wasted in the process. In the report the miners request the shipment of water pumps as used in London to fight fires or in ships to pump water to help them to exploit the rich seams which were impossible to exploit because of the presence of water. The document bears the signature of all the owners. What does not transpire from the report is the feeling of crisis that pervaded the mining community in Caylloma. This clearly emerges three years later, in 1789, as the documents added to the report show, when local officials and miners sign a petition (Caylloma, 21st of April 1789) requesting the assistance of a group of mineralogists 'mineralogistas' from Saxony that the King had sent to Peru to help to improve the mining industry. The miners of Caylloma had been informed, , that through their expertise the 'tres operarios sajones had succeeded in improving the production of silver in Potosí from thirty to three hundred percent per 'cajon'. They go on to outline the situation of the mining in the area naming very rich seams of silver with 500 pits that remained unoperational because there was not the necessary know-how to extract sufficient silver from the ore. In a subsequent document (Caylloma,1st May 1789) the official who undertook the report of 1786, the gobernador delegado Mateo Marco Francisco de Oxicain, supports the petition of miners and lends urgency to their demand by highlighting the fact that since the report of 1786 a number of miners, whom he names, had had to abandon mining because of the losses they had incurred.

        Des loteries . Par M. l'évêque d'Autun. - - - - [The most violent charge of the eighteenth century against the lottery and pernicious habits they introduce into all social strata of the population]

      A Paris, chez Barrois l'aîné, libraire, 19 quai des Augustins 1789 - VERY PERFECT COPY - - In-8° broché sous couverture d'attente de papier ancien de l'époque, exemplaire en parfaite condition (cf le scan de la couverture), 47 pages. Les Archives nationales conservent ce pamphlet (Des loteries, 1789) d'une virulence extrême et le donne comme l'attaque la plus violente et argumentée de l'Ancien Régime finissant contre les loteries. Talleyrand écrit cette charge le 19 septembre 1789. Le 10 octobre 1789, il déposera une motion auprès de l'Assemblée constituante, qui propose d'utiliser « les grands moyens » pour renflouer les caisses de l'État : la nationalisation des biens de l'Église. La loterie est supprimée en 1791 ou 1792 par les députés révolutionnaires, mais réapparaît dès 1799. Napoléon les multiplie, en créant de nouvelles dans les provinces conquises de l'Empire. La première loterie connue tirée en France date de 1539. Elle est l'oeuvre d'un Italien et reçoit l'autorisation du roi qui signe l'édit à Châteaurenard. Le loterie se nomme alors blanque, de l'italien blanca (blanche) d'après la couleur des billets où seuls ceux en noir, parmi les billets blancs distribués, sont gagnants. La blanque connaît peu de succès, et durant deux siècles, les loteries restent interdites ou simplement tolérées dans le meilleur des cas. Le retour des loteries date de la fin du xviie siècle avec la Loterie de l'Hôtel de Ville à Paris, qui permettait de payer les rentes des emprunts contractés par la ville, lorsqu'elle était à court d'argent (il s'agissait donc d'un palliatif budgétaire). Les loteries religieuses sont parfois autorisées par le pouvoir royal pour permettre à certaines congrégations en difficulté de trouver des revenus complémentaires. Elles évitent ainsi à la monarchie de devoir subvenir à leurs besoins. Les loteries permettent à de très nombreux ordres réguliers, faisant fi de la morale, de survivre au xviiie siècle, de réparer, rebâtir, voire construire de nombreuses églises, en particulier, à Paris, l'église Saint-Sulpice, ou encore l'église Sainte-Geneviève, futur Panthéon de Paris. Les loteries de l'Hôtel de ville à Paris servent également à financer la restauration des monuments. Le total des sommes générées par les loteries devient tellement important que durant la seconde moitié du xviiie siècle le pouvoir royal tente avec succès, mais non sans difficultés, de les récupérer à son seul profit. La monarchie commence par interdire ou récupérer pour elle certaines loteries, versant aux ordres religieux des indemnités inférieures aux revenus précédemment générés. Elle renforce également son arsenal juridique contre les tricheurs et les faussaires. La gradation des peines est révélatrice : modérée dans le cas d'une tricherie à une loterie religieuse, sévère dans le cas d'une loterie semi-publique comme celle de l'Hôtel de ville, allant jusqu'aux galères dans le cas des loteries d'État. En 1754, à l'initiative de Madame de Pompadour, naît la Loterie de l'École militaire, première vraie tentative de loterie nationale pour financer l'achat du Champ de Mars et construire l'École Militaire où quelques années plus tard Napoléon Bonaparte fera ses études. La Loterie de l'École militaire est transformée en Loterie Royale de France en 1776, l'année de la création de la Administration générale des loteries. L'État s'attribue un monopole qui, à la veille de la Révolution française, lui permet d'encaisser entre 5 et 7 % de ses revenus (estimation réalisée d'après les documents disponibles aux Archives nationales). Les loteries suscitent de nombreux débats et de violentes querelles tout au long du siècle entre les moralistes, philosophes des Lumières ou les théologiens qui considèrent les loteries comme de véritables arnaques, générant accoutumance, vice, crime et pauvreté parmi les joueurs, et d'autre part les bénéficiaires du produit des loteries.

        Extra Official State Papers. Addressed to The Right Hon. Lord Rawdon and the Other Members of the Two House of Parliament, Associated for the Preservation of the Constitution and Promoting the Prosperity of the British Empire. By a Late Under Secretary of State [William Knox].

      London, J.Debrett. 1789 - 8°. 49, [1], 14, [2], 174 [2] pages plus Errata-leaf. Original Hardcover. Contemporary Irish calf with edges stained green. Neatly rebacked. Gilt ornaments on spine with beautiful original spinelabel. In overall excellent condition. This thoughtful work on Irish politics and history was written by an Irish-born government official, and subsequently owned by two significant figures in Irish history, both of whom have left their mark on it. The first was the spy and co-founder of the United Irishmen, Leonard Macnally who has signed and annotated the text, followed by Warner William Westenra second Baron Rossmore who has left his notes and jottings on the Act of Union. [SABIN 38181] The title page bears the ownership signature of Leonard Macnally who signs himself 'Leo: MacNally' with the name of the anonymous author '[William] Knox' written in his hand below. Macnally, a barrister and playwright, is now remembered as a notorious spy for the British government, exploiting his status as a co-founder of the United Irishmen to betray friends and republican clients such as Wolfe Tone even as he purported to defend them in the court cases that followed the rebellion of 1798. In addition to his ownership signature MacNally has lightly annotated Knox's Appendix which contains a 'Paper delivered to Lord Frederick Campbell, when appointed Secretary to Ireland, 1767' in which the author addresses the 'tyranny' of aristocratic government in Ireland, lamenting the 'wretched. ancient condition of Ireland. in respect to property' ownership. MacNally's interest seems to lie in Knox's reading of the history of Irish land tenure with five inked annotations setting out the legal justification for Knox's historical analysis, frequently by reference to Blackstone's Commentaries on the Laws of England. The bookplate of the Barons Rossmore appears on the front pastedown, almost certainly Warner William Westenra (1765-1842) the second Baron who was briefly a member of the Irish Parliament before losing his seat in the Act of Union, returning to spearhead a campaign to reform the representative peerage in Ireland, finally serving as Lord Lieutenant of Monaghan. On the penultimate blank endpaper, Westenra wrestles with the implications of Union with the UK, apparently writing before the act: 'The question now before the public is shall we have an Union? Shall the people of Ireland consent to an Union of Legislature. The voice of thousands cry out no - that is the voice of thousands exclaim - let material pride trample upon national interest.' Alluding to one of the perennial features of Irish history, Rossmore acknowledges: 'Literary men of genius will go to England', but resignedly continues, 'Is that not the case now - Sheridan &c' [Description: Christian White] [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Tiny collector’s blindstamp bottom right corner of each plate. Measures: 113 by 72 and 113 by 71 mm; 5 1/8 by 3 7/8 and 5 1/8 by 3 13/16 ins. on leaf -- 208 by 149 and 209 by 144 mm, 8 3/16 by 5 7/8 in and 8 1/4 by 5 11/16 ins. These two plates are from a copy (designated copy Y) recorded but untraced until discovered by Detlef Doerrbecker in Germany in 1980. A Cradle Song sold at Sotheby’s New York, 1 Nov. 2007, lot 21, for $115,000 on an estimate of $10,000-15,000. Bindman 62 and 63; Bentley pls. 16 and 17 (p. 364 onwards). Modeled on “Cradle Hymn” in Watts’s Divine and Moral Songs... Blake’s draft for a contrary song of the same title in his Notebook was not published in Experience. (Johnson and Grant, Blake’s Poetry and Designs, p.20). See BBS 119-20 and Detlef W. Dörrbecker, “Innocence Lost and Found: An Untraced Copy Traced,” Blake 15.3 (winter 1981-82): 125-31, with illus. of “The Shepherd,” “The Little Black Boy” (2nd pl.), “The Little Boy Found,” and “Cradle Song” (2nd pl.). Pl. 16: “A Cradle Song,” I. The flourishing branches are either brown (i.e. the printing color), or a lusterless green; the tiny figures have not been hand-colored. The text is set off against yellow, blue, and rose colored washes which run down the margins (at the left: yellow; at the upper right: blue, and at the lower right: pinkish red); these have also been extended horizontally between the lines of the text. To the left of the title and of the fourth stanza a few of the plant ornaments have been worked over with pen and ink.Pl. 17 (illus. 4): “A Cradle Song,” II. The plant-like flourishes above, below, and between the two remaining stanzas on this page have been colored green, modulating towards yellow; they, as well as the woman carrying a child to the left of 11. 26-28, have been given stronger outlines with the pen. The design below is composed of only three different hues: the floor, chair, and cradle, as well as the mother’s hair, are colored a light brown; the curtain is blue and vividly structured by the printed lineament in pale brown; at the left—behind the woman’s back—it is covered with dark gray-blue shading; finally, the woman’s dress is tinted with the bright pinkish carmine red that has been observed so often in this copy. The faces of mother and child, the outlines and drapery folds of the woman’s dress, the chair, and even some of the folds in the curtain have all been forcefully strengthened with pen and black ink.

        Traité élémentaire de chimie, présentée dans un ordre nouveau et d'après les découvertes modernes

      - Chez Cuchet, A Paris 1789, In-8 (12,5x20cm), xliv, 322pp. et viij, 326pp., 2 volumes reliés. - Prima edizione del primo numero (sappiamo solo poche rare copie del primo numero). - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Edition originale de première émission (on ne connaît que quelques exemplaires très rares de cette première émission, d'une rareré insigne). Le texte de cette première édition est strictement le même que celui de la seconde émission, mais elle se différencie par quelques détails : dans la seconde émission, la pagination est continue entre les 2 tomes alors qu'on a affaire à 2 paginations spécifiques pour la première ; enfin les pages de titres sont différentes, avec un fleuron pour la seconde et aucun pour la première ; sous la date, dans la seconde émission, on lit : Sous le privilège de l'Académie des Sciences & de la Societé Royale de Médecine, il n'y a rien dans la première ; enfin les sous-titres ne sont pas les mêmes, pour la première, on lit : Nouvelle édition, à laquelle on a joint la nomenclature ancienne & moderne, pour servir à l'intelligence des auteurs, etc. Dans la seconde : Par M. Lavoisier, de l'Académie des Sciences, de la Société Royale de médecine, etc. Edition illustrée de 9 planches dépliantes dessinées et gravées par Paulze Lavoisier (contenant de multiples figures d'instruments), l'épouse du chimiste, et un tableau ; la seconde émission contient 13 planches. Reliure en pleine basane mouchetée brune d'époque. Dos lisses ornés. Pièces de titre de basane beige et de tomaison de basane tabac. Un manque en tête du tome 2. Une zone de cuir rongée sur le plat inférieur du tome 2, sur 4 cm. Ensemble frotté. Acteur important de la naissance de la chimie moderne, Lavoisier met en application dans cet ouvrage les avancées théoriques publiées dans la Méthode de nomenclature chimique parue en 1787 (édition publiée sous le patronage de Guyton de Morveau). Lavoisier radicalise sa position et se sépare définitivement de la théorie phlogistique, il étend ses principes théoriques à l'ensemble de la chimie, rédigeant ainsi le premier manuel moderne de chimie en présentant une vision uniforme et cohérente de ses nouvelles découvertes. Certains historiens des sciences considèrent le livre comme l'équivalent de ce que Newton fit pour la physique. In fine au tome 2, les tables à l'usage des chimistes, un Extrait des registres de l'Académie des sciences, un autre de l'Académie de médecine. Contrairement à ce qui est parfois répandu, cette édition originale de première émission ne diffère en rien de la seconde par le texte. Précieuse originale de l'acte fondateur de la chimie moderne. NB : Cet ouvrage est disponible à la librairie sur demande sous 48 heures.

Henrey II, p. 531. Barbier, pp. 49-51. Upcott I, p. 330. Lowndes II 894. Cox, Travel III, p. 30. Beginning with the first edition of River Wye, which appeared in 1782, Gilpin published five different picturesque tours, eventually running to eleven volumes, all with the same title format: Observations on [various regions of Britain] relative chiefly to picturesque beauty. The illustrations are in aquatint, over which is brushed a tint of warm yellow or brown to give provide tone. According to Chilvers & Osborne, Gilpin was "first to establish the picturesque as an aesthetic category and by his numerous writings, illustrated by his own fine aquatints, he exerted a profound and lasting influence on both English and European taste in natural and artificial scenery and landscape painting." In June of 1770, Gilpin embarked on his first truly picturesque tour. For Gilpin, "sailing down the Wye proved a very different trip from his tame journey down the Thames: the ruined castles and mountains of Wales were indeed exciting after the flat countryside of eastern and south-eastern England. . . . here was landscape that called for description, that matched his conceptions of beauty and grandeur."

      Per Gaetano Cambiagi, 1789. Prima edizione. Cm.30x23. Pg.344. Coperta cartonata coeva, leggermente allentata, con titoli manoscritti al dorso, lievemente sbiaditi. Cinque tavole in grande formato nitidamente incise da Giovanni Canocchi, raffiguranti la carta della val di Chiana dall'Appennino al Tevere (cm.31x42,5); la carta dettagliata da Arezzo a Orvieto, attraverso Monte San Savino, Torrita, il Trasimeno, Montepulciano, Chiusi, Chianciano, Città della Pieve (cm.47x116); la carta dell'area circostante Arezzo, dall'Arno alla Collina di Santa Fiora (cm.32x42); una tavola tecnica con 13 figure (cm.32x42); ed il "Profilo della Livellazione del Canal Maestro della Chiana dalla Pescaia dei Monaci della Badia di Santa Fiora, e Lucilla della Città di Arezzo fino al Callone fatta nel Mese di Giugno dell'anno 1769 in occasione della visita del Matte.co Perelli dall'Ingegnar Salvetti (cm.31x74). Fresco esemplare in barbe, su carta greve, assai ben conservato. Edizione originale di un celebre, fondamentale studio sulla bonifica della Val di Chiana, realizzata sul finire del XVIII secolo dall'ingegnere Vittorio Fossombroni su incarico del Granduca Pietro Leopoldo I di Lorena, mediante un sistema di canalizzazione detto "per colmata". Matematico ed economista, Vittorio Fossombroni (Arezzo 1754-1844) si occupò anche delle bonifiche in Maremma e nell'Agro romano. Figura di grande importanza e autorità, ricoprì la carica di Ministro degli Esteri sotto i Lorena e durante il periodo napoleonico, e anche nella Restaurazione fu Segretario di Stato, Ministro degli Esteri e Direttore delle Reali Segreterie . > Moreni, I, 393, "Ha diviso l'Autore le sue Osservazioni in due Parti: la prima sull'antico Stato della Valdichiana, la seconda sulle successive condizioni della medesima. L'orditura della prima Parte è affatto geometrica. Eccola in due parole. Tutta la Chiana correva un dì verso il Tevere, ma senza l'ajuto di qualche acqua straniera non avrebbe potuto corrervi, dunque un'acqua straniera si univa a lei: or quest'acqua da un certo tempo è mancata dunque dal quel tempo cessò per la più gran parte il corso della Chiana al Tevere, ma il ristagno cagiona la depositura delle Torbe, e questa il rialzamento del terreno, dunque la valle per lungo tratto rialzata dovè rovesciare la direzione antica della Chiana, e far correre a Settentrione quell'acque che correvano al Mezzogiorno. Le diverse proposizioni di questo sì semplice raziocinio sono magistralmente dimostrate". Lozzi, II, 5759, "Esemplare in carta greve: con cinque grandi tavole idro - topografiche". Inghirami, I, 294. Platneriana, 405. Graesse, II, 620. Brunet, II, 1355. Codice libreria 142559.
