          HELMAN (Isidore-Stanislas).

          Est: €400 - €500

          HELMAN (Isidore-Stanislas). Abrégé historique des principaux traits de la vie de Confucius, célèbre philosophe chinois. A Paris, chez l’auteur et M. Ponce, [1787]. Grand in-4, entièrement gravé, [1] f. (titre), 24 planches, chacune accompagnée d’un feuillet de texte, basane havane mouchetée pastiche, dos à 5 nerfs, pièce de titre rouge, caissons ornés, tranches rouges (défauts dont mors fendus, coins émoussés). Le Confucius d’Helman n’a rien d’un ouvrage innocent : c’est une brillante proclamation en faveur des idées des Lumières : le portrait de Confucius qui ouvre la suite des 24 gravures d’Helman, associé à un quatrain de Voltaire composé pour le Dictionnaire philosophique en 1770, gravé au-dessous, n’est pas le fait du hasard. Il s’agit là d’une forte prise de position politico-philosophique, qui fit scandale à son époque. Non daté, cet ouvrage fut annoncé au Journal de Paris le 7 octobre 1786, et il fut très vraisemblablement livré au public dès le début de l’année suivante. En effet, l’orientaliste français Joseph de Guignes (1721-1800) lui a consacré un compte rendu détaillé, assorti d’une critique élogieuse, dans le Journal des sçavans de janvier 1787 (p. 72-74) : « très bien gravées […] ces planches sur lesquelles on a conservé tout le costume et le goût des Chinois, forment une collection intéressante propre à piquer la curiosité soit par la délicatesse du burin, soit par la variété des sujets «. (Inventaire du Fonds Français, Graveurs du XVIIIe siècle, T. XI, n° 83-106 ; Cordier, Bibliotheca sinica, 667 ; Cohen 479 ; Voir aussi : p. Torres, Les batailles de l’empereur de Chine, Paris, 2009, notamment pour le chapitre « Confucius et les Lumières, sur une estampe d’Helman »). Provenance : monogramme couronné estampillé au titre ; comte Nicolas d’Esterhazy (ex-libris armorié gravé XIXe s.)

          HELMAN, Isidore Stanislas Henri (1743-c.1809). Faits Mémorables des Empereurs de la Chine, tirés des Annales Chinoises. Paris: for the author and M. Ponce, 1788. First edition, deluxe issue, with the plates printed on papier de Hollande and coloured by hand. This copy has been further enhanced for a wealthy 19th-century Russian owner by the addition of manuscript captions in Russian summarising the French text. As recently recognised, Helman’s Faits is based on a 16th-century work, the Dijian tushuo, commissioned to educate the Ming dynasty Wanli emperor in moral precepts by presenting short histories of good and evil emperors throughout the ages (Marcia Reed and Paola Dematté, China on Paper, 2007, no. 20). The engravings are largely based on drawings by Jean Denis Attiret (1702-1768), sponsored by the Emperor. Attiret was a Jesuit painter active in China, where he was appointed imperial Painter and made a mandarin. The work was originally issued in 4 fascicles of varying refinement; the present deluxe hand-coloured issue cost 48 livres, 4 times the price of the basic issue. Cohen-de Ricci 479; Cordier 587-8; Lust 1133 (not calling for a dedication leaf). Quarto (274 x 207mm). Engraved throughout, including title, 24 hand-coloured engraved plates by Helman after Father Attiret, here with manuscript captions in Russian, and 24 leaves of text (lacking dedication leaf, thumb-soiling at lower corners, occasional small stain or spotting, occasional short marginal tear).

This series of engravings, which illustrate the memorable acts of the emperors of China, are after the original Chinese drawings (according to Cohen/De Ricci, by P. Jésuite Attiret), held in the Cabinet du Roi. Large plates were engraved on the orders of the Emperor, and distributed only in China. Only a few rare proofs remained in Europe, and it was after these that Helman engraved these reduced versions.

(Some light marginal browning or spotting, a few leaves lightly browned.) 19th-century half diced roan, spine titled in gilt (some wear to spine and corners). Provenance: L. V. Ledeboer, Rotterdam (early 20th-century armorial bookplate pasted inside upper cover). A RARE COLLECTION OF ALL THREE SERIES OF HELMAN'S DECORATIVE CHINESE ENGRAVINGS. The first comprises engravings illustrating the life of Confucius, from a set of drawings sent from China to Paris by Jean-Joseph-Pierre Amiot (1718-1793), Minister of Peking, and kept in the Cabinet du Roi. The accompanying text is an abridged version of the philosopher's life. The second series, which illustrate the memorable acts of the emperors of China, are after original Chinese drawings (according to Cohen/De Ricci, by P. Jésuite Attiret), also held in the Cabinet. Large plates were engraved on the orders of the Emperor, and distributed only in China. Only a few rare proofs remained in Europe, and it was after these that Helman engraved these reduced versions. Both these works were issued in folio and quarto format; here, the stitching indicates that the first set may have once been bound. The Suite des Seize Estampes, illustrating the conquests of Emperor Kien-Long, were engraved after drawings sent to France in 1765 by the Emperor, to be engraved by celebrated artists. Cochin supervised the task which was completed in 1774. Helman's copies were produced from 1783-85, with plates of imperial ceremonies added from 1786-88. Cohen/De Ricci 479; Lust 729, 1133 (here with variant title), cf. 1131.
