420 pp. Large 4to, red half-calf & marbled boards (extremities slightly worn), gilt title on spine. Paris: Madame Huzard, 1810. The famous catalogue of an important and vast collection of prints and drawings. Paignon Dijonval (1708-92), secrétaire du Roi and voracious art collector, began accumulating artworks at the age of 16. His grandson and sole heir, Charles Gilbert Morel de Vindé (1759-1842), asked Bénard to prepare a detailed catalogue of Dijonval's collection in order to facilitate its sale. The English dealer Samuel Woodburn purchased the collection en bloc in 1819 and then sold most of it to the Duke of Buckingham. This catalogue details 4461 lots of drawings and 11,055 lots of engravings. Alphabetical index of artists and engravers at end. Nice copy.

Canon Doctrinae Triangulorum

RHETICUS , Georg Joachim

  • Quantity available: 1
Woodcut vignette of an obelisk on title. Title & tables printed in red & black. [23] pp. 4to, attractive antique panelled calf (smallish stamp very carefully bleached from verso of title). Leipzig: W. Gunter, 1551. First edition of a great rarity; this epoch-making book contains "the first table to give all six trigonometric functions, including the first extensive table of tangents and the first printed table of secants."-D.S.B., XI, p. 397. These were the first great trigonometric tables ever issued; J.W.L. Glaisher described Rheticus as "by far the greatest computer of pure trigonometrical tables, whose work has never been superseded." This slender quarto does not consist entirely of these trigonometric tables; at the end is a six-page "Dialogus de Canone Doctrinae Triangulorum" by Rheticus. It is presented in the format of a humanist dialogue between Hospes, a guest, and Philomathes, who represents Rheticus's pupil Matthias Stojus, who also wrote the ... Read more

16 engraved plates. Title leaf. 8vo, orig. blue wrappers bound in later cloth-backed marbled boards, uncut. London: Printed for I. & J. Taylor, n.d. [but early 1790s]. First edition, later issue. Wallis (fl. 1771-73), who described himself as an architect, is known only as the author of three pattern-books. When the present book was first issued, it was accompanied by one leaf of Taylor ads. As copies were sold off over a period of many years, a new title-page was printed to accompany the already printed plates with the Taylors' new address ("Nearly opposite Great Turn-Stile, Holborn"), along with the most recently printed Taylor catalogue. This copy is accompanied by a 16-page Taylor catalogue datable to about 1800 (they were now located at No. 59 High Holborn). Nice copy. Bookplate of Edmond L. Lincoln. ❧ Harris, British Architectural Books and Writers 1556-1785, no. 902.

25, [1] pp. 8vo, 19th-cent. red sheep-backed marbled boards, spine lettered in gilt. London: Printed for the Author, 1799. First edition of this scarce book. Rev. Bligh, who has signed and dated (25 August 1798) the final leaf, had the living at Romaldkirk, Yorkshire. This is his account of his lawsuit against his own parishioners regarding the payment of tithes. He gives many details of land and property held by the church and the rules of tithes set out in documents known as glebe terriers. This trial was rather famous in its time. Title dusty but a nice copy. Stamp of the Lawes Agricultural Trust on front paste-down.

xiv, 415 pp.; xiv, one leaf, 333, lxxvii, [1] pp. Two vols. 8vo, cont. marbled boards (minor wear & foxing), uncut, orange & green morocco lettering pieces on spines. Pisa: N. Capurro, 1821. First edition of "the catalogue of the vast library on archaeology and art history collected by Cicognara, himself a notable art historian. It is tantamount to a bibliography of the pre-1820 literature on these subjects, owing to the detailed bibliographical and critical notes to the 4,800 works, and is still frequently consulted and quoted."-Grolier Club, Bibliography, 121. In 1824, Cicognara (1767-1834), sold the entire library to Pope Leo XII, who incorporated it into the Vatican Library. Very good uncut set. From the library of Helmuth Domizlaff, the great German bookseller, with his discrete small stamp on each title.

5 p.l., 219, [1] pp. 8vo, cont. boards, black leather lettering piece on spine. Paris: Silvestre, 1824. An important sale. "Ce catalogue renferme une réunion très-nombreuse de livres imprimés par les Elzeviers; il en est de très-rares et qui étaient jusqu'alors restés inconnus aux bibliographes."­Brunet, Dictionnaire de Bibliologie Catholique, col. 498. A large number of Motteley's books come from the libraries of de Thou and the Comte d'Hoym. We learn from the same source that Motteley (d. 1850), lived as a hermit, alone and isolated in a rundown apartment. He was afraid to make home repairs because of his fear of disturbing the treasures on which he had spent so much money. Of the 2173 lots, approximately 550 are attributed to the Elzeviers; a number of the items are accompanied by useful printed notes and include an expansive contribution by Charles Nodier on lot 533.

xxiii, [1], 423 pp. 8vo, 19th-cent. polished calf-backed marbled boards (short crack at foot of upper joint, some browning), spine gilt. Paris: De Bure père et fils, 1808. The first issue of the auction catalogue of Caillard's library. The present catalogue (2650 lots and limited to 1200 copies) was published for the auction which was eventually held in 1810 (the second issue has 1810 on the title). This was an important library containing notable incunabula, classical texts, scientific and natural history works, and voyages in the finest possible condition and often printed on large paper. Also included are fine bindings and MSS. Antoine Bernard Caillard (1737-1807), had issued a privately printed catalogue of his library, limited to 25 copies only, in 1805. Caillard was a French diplomat and man of letters. A very good copy. Without the rare four-page schedule of sale at end. ❧ Brunet, I, 1643.

18 p.l., 123 pp. 8vo, cont. marbled wrappers (minor browning). Amsterdam: 1731. First edition of a very uncommon book. Fourmont (1683-1745), "was the first scholar in France to deal with Chinese matters. He started his career in the Académie des Inscriptions et Belles-Lettres as a Hebraist and had written several small books on Hebrew matters, but he left this discipline and turned to Chinese in 1711. At that time he met a young French-speaking Chinese man by the name of Arcadio Huang [(1679-1716),] in the Bibliothèque Nationale; Huang was the only Chinese speaking-person in France. Fourmont seized the opportunity to be introduced to Chinese, a language hitherto completely unknown in France. For the rest of his life he laboured with this language. Arcadio Huang taught him the pronunciation of Chinese syllables, and quite particularly, he introduced him to the 214 radicals."-from the Preface of Knud Lundbaek in Cécile Leung, Etienne Fourmont (1683-1745) Oriental and C ...

xx, 76 pp. 8vo, orig. green cloth, upper cover lettered in gilt. [Manchester: Chas. Sever, Lithographer], 1900. The rare catalogue describing a vast and storied collection. The collection had its beginnings with the peculiar story of Francis Egerton (not the above), the 3rd Duke of Bridgewater (1736-1803), also known as the "Canal Duke." "The Duke of Bridgewater was one of the great and eccentric success stories of English history. Like that other ducal oddity, the 5th Duke of Portland, he was rejected in love and remained a bachelor. Bridgewater had one big idea: to construct a canal from Manchester to Liverpool to transport coals from his mines. He sank £220,000 into this project and when it faltered reduced his household expenditure to £400 a year. But when the canal was completed his income rocketed to £80,000 a year, so he could afford almost anything. Bridgewater's interest in art arose late in life and it is difficult to consider his motives as anything ... Read more

28 pp. 8vo (215 x 140 mm.), late 19th-century red cloth, title on spine. Paris: Fournier, Folliot & Delalande, 1789. A rare sale catalogue with no copy in American institutional collections.

x, 69 pp. Small 8vo (165 x 105 mm.), late 19th-century brown morocco-backed marbled boards (head of spine chipped), spine gilt. Paris: Didot l'aîné, 1766. The uncommon auction catalogue, fully priced and with many buyers' names written throughout in a contemporary hand, of the wide-ranging collection (or stock?) of the famed portraitist, peintre du roi, and close friend of Chardin. According to Patrick Michel, Aved (1702-66) was one of the most well-known examples of an artist with a sideline as a dealer; the Académie de Saint-Luc accused him of "the illegal practice of selling and disloyal competition." The Baron von Grimm wrote of Aved (in trans.): "[He] loved the profession of selling more than being a painter. He was an expert in old paintings and knew how to profit from them..."-Michel, Le Commerce du tableau à Paris..., pp. 106-7. "Aved formed a remarkable art collection. This consisted of ceramics, Oriental bronzes and sculpture a ... Read more

The very rare auction catalogue, with most prices and many buyers' names written in a contemporary hand, of the Baron Holbach's little-known but choice art collection. The sale's expert, Jean Baptiste Pierre Lebrun, provides an exceptionally long and informative biography of Holbach (1723-89), enriched with several amusing anecdotes. This catalogue describes 93 lots of paintings (by Teniers, Wouwerman, Berchem, Mengs, Le Nain, N. Poussin, S. Bourdon, Oudry, Vernet, etc.), prints, and various curiosities, such as Japanese and Chinese porcelain, shells, and miniature sculptures. The Northern pictures were sold at especially high prices (see lots 6 & 8). According to the annotations, some of the leading dealers and collectors of the period were present at the sale.
