Über diesen Titel:

Inhaltsangabe: The Quebec Roxane describes to her best friend Sarah in these thirteen letters is a territory fast taking on new shapes. Its geographical space extends from Montreal through the bucolic islands of the Saint Lawrence as far as New York; its cultural space is dominated by literary modernism and feminism. Most significantly, Roxane's map of artistic practices is given against a backdrop of the power relationships which sustain them: the tensions between small and large cultures, the inequalities of Quebec and English Canada, the subtle conflicts which mark the continued subordination of women in a supposedly emancipated society. Her letters address not only that persistent puzzle what is Quebec? but - a question certainly as difficult - what is culture today?""-Sherry Simon, Concordia University

Buchbeschreibung London J. Robson, 1778. First English edition. 4to., [2], x, 584pp., 19 engraved plates on 17 sheets (all folding), 1 engraving in the text, modern half calf, red morocco label, an excellent copy. Originally published in Italian, this English edition combines two separately published accounts: Fortis' travels in Dalmatia from 1771 to 1774 and his journey with Antonio Veranzio from Budapest to Constantinople on behalf of Ferdinand I to conclude a peace treaty with Suleiman the Magnificent. This text was edited by Fortis from Veranzio's private papers. Fortis' Dalmatian travels reflect his intersts as a naturalist and in addition to the recipients of his letters mentioned on the title-page, he also wrote to James Ferbier of the Mineralogical College of Sweden; Antonio Vallisnieri, professor of Botany, and John Strange, British Ambassador to Venice. The engravings include costume and natural history specimens. Blackmer 618. Artikel-Nr. 87854

Buchbeschreibung London: printed for Peter Martel, and sold by W. Meadows [and 5 others], 1744, 1744. Quarto (270 x 206 mm), 28 pp. Original plain paper wrappers, manuscript title inked to front panel. Housed in a dark blue quarter morocco slipcase with chemise by the Chelsea Bindery. "Lucanus cervus", the Linnaean classification for the stag beetle, inscribed to the rear wrapper upside-down in a contemporary hand; later discreet monogram "GHM" inked to front wrapper verso. Wrappers marked, contents variably spotted, soiled and damp-stained, initial blank excised as often, title page marked, and chipped at lower outer corner to no loss of text, nevertheless a very good copy. 2 copper-engraved folding plates. First edition of one of the most important works of early mountaineering literature, and "the cornerstone for a Mont Blanc collection" (Meckly), the second plate incorporating the first printed map to identify the mountain by name. Extremely rare in the original wrappers, with the scattering of copies traced in auction records either rebound or part of a sammelband, and often heavily restored; this copy additionally has the contemporary ownership inscription "M. Maty" to the title page, likely that of the noted Dutch Huguenot physician and librarian Matthew Maty (1718-1776), who arrived in London in 1740 and in 1756 became one of the three original keepers of the British Museum. Windham, the son of a wealthy Norfolk landowner, spent time in Geneva among a circle of British expatriates known as the Common Room, and with a few other members of the circle joined Richard Pococke's expedition to Chamonix in June 1741. The group scaled the Montenvers and formally discovered the Mer de Glace, depicted in one of the plates; thus they appear to have become the first recorded travellers for pleasure in the region. Windham's pioneering account "is always linked with that of Pierre Martel, who visited Chamonix the following year. Both their original accounts were written in French and circulated in Geneva in manuscript only. A version (still in French) of the two manuscripts, edited by Leonard Boulacre, was published in Journal Helvetique, May-June, 1743" (Neate). The records of the printer, William Bowyer, show that 500 copies were printed (ESTC). A second edition was printed at Ipswich in 1747. Meckly 222; Neate 922. Artikel-Nr. 118828
