Partial hairline cracks along outer joints, but hinges still holding. firm, ink stain to lower margin of T2 of volume 1, tiny chip from. upper right margin of Yy2 of volume 2, very faint marginal stains to. a few leaves in each volume, but a remarkably clean text overall. A. very good copy with nearly fine interior. (#118754). First edition. A popular collection of pseudo-oriental tales which went through at least seven editions by 1800. "An idiosyncratic manifestation of the eighteenth- century mania for Oriental tales inspired by Galland's translation of THE ARABIAN NIGHTS (1704-1717). The author was allegedly 'formerly ambassador in India to the Great Mogul,' but was in fact a British clergyman who had never traveled abroad. The stories imitate the style of THE ARABIAN NIGHTS. The 'exotic' names of the characters are often anagrams of English names. Morell's one substantive innovation is his conclusion, in which an evil magician flies off to wreak havoc in England -- an interesting if accidental foreshadowing of the menace from the East so effectively employed by Bram Stoker in DRACULA." - Barron (ed), Fantasy Literature 1- 55. Charles Dickens loved Ridley's stories as a child, making several allusions to them in later novels and Ridley's "The Adventures of Abudah the Merchant" inspired a key image in Coleridge's "Kubla Khan."

        The History Of Kamtschatka, And The Kurilski Islands, With The Countries Adjacent.Translated into English by James Grieve, M.D.

      Glocester: Printed By R.Raikes For T.Jefferys, London, 1764. - 4to. pp. 4 p.l. (incl. errata), vii, 280, [8]index. 2 folding engraved maps by Thomas Jefferys & 5 engraved plates (containing 7 views; 2 folding). contemporary marbled calf, rebacked & recornered (minor worming to lower blank margin of title & frontis. map & to front flyleaf). First Edition of the abridged English Translation by James Grieve, of one of the earliest printed narratives about Alaska and the Aleutian Islands, and the first scientific account of Kamchatka. The author, a student at the Russian Academy of Sciences, was sent to join Bering's second expedition as an assistant to G.W.Steller. Much of his narrative is based on Steller's notes. Originally published in Russian in 1755, the work discusses in great detail natural history, the manners, customs and religion of the Kamchatkans, the power and influence of the shamans, and also compares the dialects of the Kamchatkans, Korsars and Kirile Islanders. "The Russian Krasheninnikov started out across Siberia with Gerhard Friedrich Mueller and Johann Georg Gmelin, and then made his own way to Kamchatka. When Georg Wilhelm Steller arrived in Kamchatka to supervise his work, Krasheninnikov left in order to avoid becoming Steller's assistant, and returned to St. Petersburg. Krasheninnikov nonetheless was able to make use of Steller's notes in the preparation of his own narrative, and the inclusion of Steller's observations on America, made during his travels with Bering's second voyage, are an important part of this work, and constitute one of the earliest accounts of Alaska and the Aleutian Islands. Steller's account was not published until 1793.This is the first scientific account of those regions." (Hill) Arctic Bib. 9264. Bell K102. Cox I 351. Hill 948. Howes K-265. Lada-Mocarski 12n.

      London: T. Jefferys 1764, 2nd And best edition. (Hardcover) viii, 120pp. Very good. Quarto, 20th century quarter calf and paper over boards, matching endpapers. Mild toning. A very clean solid and untrimmed copy of a scarce work. 4 maps (2 folding). With ornate armorial bookplate of James Smith, and bookplate of Frank S. Streeter. Frank Streeter Copy. TPL 185, Lande 1358 and JCB 1300 (1ST EDS.); Sabin 51285; Translated from vol. Ill, part I of Mueller's Sammlung Russischer Geschichte... Of 1758, this edition of the English translation is enlarged by the addition of an index, and carries a new preface reflecting the changes wrought in North America by the Treaty of Paris, which brought the Seven Years' War to a close in 1763. Jefferys, in this new preface, takes issue with the maps which were drawn by the French as including too much territory under the name of Canada in order to lay claim to a great part of the continent; "if so, we have now the Pleasure to see their Artifices have met a proper Retaliation from an injured Nation, and, instead of gaining by their Encroachments upon others, they have lost all their valuable Settlements, and are themselves drove out of North America, which we have so gallantly and justly purchased by our Swords." Mueller was a scientist under Bering, and his work contains the original account of Bering's polar expedition and of his discovery of the strait which is named after him; it was through this expedition that the westernmost limits of North America were discovered and explored as far south as the present-day Prince of Wales Island. The maps are A Map of the Discoveries by the Russians on the North West Coast of America, A General Map of the Discoveries of Admiral de Fonte and other Navigators...in Quest of a Passage to the South Sea (by de I'Isle), A Map of the N.E. Parts of Asia, and N. W. Parts of America, showing their Situation with respect to Japan, and A Map of Canada and the North Part of Louisiana with the Adjacent Countrys.

        A Map of the most Inhabited part of New England containing the Provinces of Massachusets Bay and New Hampshire, with the Colonies of Conecticut and Rhode Island, Divided into Counties and Townships: The whole composed from Actual Surveys and its Situation adjusted by Astronomical Observations

      London: Thomas Jefferys, 1764. The largest and most detailed map of New England that had yet been published, and one of the great maps of the east coast of America, by one of the greatest figures in 18th-century cartography: 'Mead's contributions to cartography stand out ... At a time when the quality and the ethics of map production were at a low ebb in England, he vigorously urged and practiced the highest standards' (Cumming, p.47) This is the grandest, most accurate and detailed map of New England produced during the British colonial period. It depicts the entire region from Long Island Sound up north to line of 44'30 of latitude. While it shows that the coastal areas, and the lower Connecticut Valley were well settled, areas of the interior, especially in New Hampshire and the future Vermont were just developing, with the early boundaries of townships having recently been established by surveyors. Importantly, this map contains two highly-detailed cartographic insets, one of the city of Boston (upper-left), and another of Boston Harbor on the lower-right sheet. The map is also adorned with a very handsome pictorial title cartouche, depicting the arrival of the Pilgrims at Plymouth Rock in 1620. The present map is the first issue of the second edition of this work, and has been significantly updated from the original issue of 1755. The map's publisher, Thomas Jefferys was the leading British mapmaker of the mid-eighteenth century. He became geographer to the Prince of Wales in 1746 and then to King George III in 1760. He published a remarkable number of maps and charts, and is best known for his work The American Atlas (1775) This map's maker, John Green, was an intriguing and larger-than-life figure, who has been called "the genius behind Jefferys." In addition to his extensive cartographic abilities, Green's personal history also stands out from amongst the biographies of other 18th-century British map makers. Green was born Braddock Mead in Ireland around 1688, married in Dublin in 1715 and moved to London in 1717. He was imprisoned in 1728 for trying to defraud an Irish heiress, and assumed his alias after his release from prison. He worked with Ephriam Chambers on his Universal Dictionary before joining the employ of Cave, Astley, and Jefferys. William Cumming remarked that he 'had a number of marked characteristics as a cartographer ... One was his ability to collect, to analyze the value of, and to use a wide variety of sources; these he acknowledged scrupulously on the maps he designed and even more fully in accompanying remarks. Another outstanding characteristic was his intelligent compilation and careful evaluation of reports on latitudes and longitudes used in the construction of his maps, which he also entered in tables on the face of the maps ... Mead's contributions to cartography stand out ... At a time when the quality and the ethics of map production were at a low ebb in England, he vigorously urged and practiced the highest standards; in the making of maps and navigational charts he was in advance of his time. For this he deserves due credit.'

        Miscellaneous Correspondence

      nbsp;London 1764 - A scarce copy of Benjamin Martin's Miscellaneous Correspondence. Bound in calf with gilt lettering. Scarce. With fifteen plates in volume one and eighteen in volume two, including five folding plates. Volume I & II only of three. Part of a thirteen volume set making up The general magazine of arts and sciences, philosophical, philological, mathematical, and mechanical. Originally published between January 1755 and December 1758. Bound without title pages. Benjamin Martin (1704-1782) was a schoolmaster and travelling lecturer who invented several optical instruments. Martin's most ambitious literary project was The general magazine of arts and sciences, philosophical, philological, mathematical, and mechanical. Designed to be published in about 120 sixpenny monthly numbers, beginning in January 1755, it was extensively advertised in London and provincial newspapers. A combination of a part-work encyclopaedia and a topical periodical, each number consisted of a few pages of five separate main works, with associated copperplates, plus a few pages of topical material, such as births and deaths, and prices of stocks. On completion of the project in 1764 the text and plates were bound into thirteen octavo volumes entitled: The Young Gentleman and Lady's Philosophy, The Natural History of England, A Comprehensive System of Philology, Mathematical Institutions (all 2 vols. ), Biographia philosophica (1 vol. ), and Miscellaneous Correspondence (4 vols. ). Only the last had any resemblance to a periodical: the others were complete works in themselves. - DNBCondition: The binding is tight and firm. There is some wear to the extremities, including bumping with slight loss to the leather. Internally the pages are clean and bright with the veryoccasional spot. There is a closed tear to one of the folding plates in volume two measuring approx. 4. 5cm. There are small ink inscriptions on the front pastedowns. Overall the condition is very good.

Signature R in volume one loose (string broken), else a very nice. copy, internally very clean and in an attractive contemporary. binding. (#95688). Third edition. Preceded by the two-volume first edition, printed in Venice in 1748-1749 and two-volume Naples reprint in 1756. A popular eighteenth- century satire, thoroughly in the tradition of Gulliver and Niels Klim, reprinted several times in Italian and Spanish into the early nineteenth- century. Seriman's work may claim "a place both in an Australian library and in a collection of aeronautica, and in addition, it forms an important item in any collection of imaginary voyages, such as GULLIVER'S TRAVELS by which probably it was inspired." - TLS, 15 February 1923, p. 112. Seriman's "work is presented in the form of an imaginary voyage and contains many of the conventions of the genre. Two young men are shipwrecked on what is obviously the coast of Australia. They first spend some time in the land of the monkey people. Their study of that society provides a method through which Seriman is able to satirize eighteenth- century Venetian society. In the second part of the book the hero visits the land of the dog-headed people. There, an absolute monarch, despite his pessimistic view of human nature, has organized a group of philosopher statesmen as advisers through whom he attempts to create an orderly society. A part of the training of such philosopher-statesmen (and the hero of the book becomes one such trainee) is a journey through that part of the realm which has been set aside for the philosophers and scientists. The journey through this area gives Seriman an opportunity to satirize a number of eighteenth-century scientific, philosophical, and social ideas in much the same way as Swift. The state over which the king rules is perhaps not a complete utopia, but it has many aspects of the kind of utopia that might have been developed through proper application of the best principles of the European enlightenment. Despite the claims on the title page, except for a few excerpts, the work has not been translated into English. D. Maxwell White's Zaccaria Seriman, 1709-1784, and the Viaggi di Enrico Wanton (Manchester University Press, 1961) includes a good summary of plot and ideas." - Lewis, Utopian Literature, p. 175-6.

Still a charming, unsophisticated set, preserved in the original state. ~ First edition. Exceedingly scarce in the original state. A series of fictitious letters written by the orientalist Belin de Monterzi. Monterzi's book, his claims to historical veracity notwithstanding, was fiction disguised as history. It was an epistolary exchange between Byzantine princesses, the Sultan, and his officers. Hardened warriors though they were, in Monterzi's portraits they had a tender heart for the nobel Byzantine ladies, who did not resist their gallantries. One of them was Irene, the only surviving member of an illustrious Byzantine family. When Constantinople fell, some of its most highly prized spoils were its maidens, valued for their beauty and nobility. And so she was presented to the Sultan, who became deeply enamoured of her. In her tragic story there are themes of beauty, desire, and violence placed in an early oriental setting. (Buturovic, Women in the Ottoman Balkans: Gender, Culture and History).

        Lettres éscrites de la montagne + Jean-Jacques Rousseau, citoyen de Genève, a Christophe de Beaumont

      Marc Michel Rey, Amsterdam 1764 - "in 16° - pp.1cb + 3 + 348; XL +128 +1cb - Legatura in cuoio marrone, dorso a sei scomparti e sei nervi con decorazioni in oro - Testo in francese - Tagli delle carte di colore rosso. - Manca il cuoio del sesto scomparto del dorso, mancano i due capitelli dorsali. - La prima opera si presenta in due parti: parte prima con le prime sei "lettere" e parte seconda con le ultime 3 "lettere". La seconda opera è stampata ad Amsterdam chez Marc Michel Rey nel 1769, con alla fine "Cul de lampe" e la data 1862, avec privilege du Roi. La prima carta bianca presenta al recto traccia di segnatura di scaffalatura a matita blu ed al verso antica firma di appartenenza. Fra la prima e la seconda opera manca sicuramente una carta bianca. Splendida la conservazione nel resto. L'opera " Le lettere dalla montagna" venne scritta durante il soggiorno di Rousseau in Svizzera, cui l'Autore fu costretto a causa del decreto del Parlamento Francese che gli comunicava l'arresto per il clamore suscitato dalla condanna al fuoco dell'Opera "Emile". Attaccato dai Pastori svizzeri per il suo pensiero, scrive le " Lettere ", in risposta alle "Lettere dalla campagna" del Procuratore Generale del Consiglio ginevrino Tronchin che lo attaccava come sovvertitore di governi e di religioni. Dal raffronto del nostro esemplare "Lettres " con quello catalogato dal SBN con lo stesso anno di edizione emerge una diversa numerazione delle pagine, in particolare le pagine numerate del nostro esemplare sono 348, mentre quelle dell'esemplare del SBN sono 368. Ciò ci porta a ritenere che siamo certamente in possesso di una rara contraffazione. - Libro usato"

London: J. Hinton et al., 1764. First edition. "A far more outstanding piece of work was written by the Rev. Walter Harte but issued without a signature...Lord Chesterfield wrote of him in the highest terms and Johnson admired his companionable talents...Much of the Essays in Husbandry is general discussion, and Harte displays a wide acquaintance with the extensive literature of his subject, both English and Foreign, contemporary and classical...Interest in lucerne had been of long standing even in Harte's day, but it has still to become a plant that is generally grown in this country."-Fussell, More Old English Farming Books, pp. 45-46. Harte (1709-74), published his first book of poetry in 1727, at the age of 18; his verses attracted the attention of Pope, and the two subsequently became great friends. Fine copy. Contemporary armorial bookplate of "W.M. Owen Esqr., Woodhouse." .
