        Dictionnaire Typographique, Historique et Critique des Livres Rares, Singuliers, Estimés et Recherchés en Tous Genres

      1768. Paris, Lacombe, 1768. 2 vols. (xii),515pp & (iv),456pp. With the 3pp. Approbation by De La Lande and the Privilege du Roi at the end which is not always present. Typographic and woodcut head- and tailpieces. Contemporary full calf. Spine gilt (rubbed & sl. dam.). On the inside front covers of both volumes inscribed: Livres de la Bibliothèqeu de Gabriel Jean Brac and his wax seal. Important early book-collecting handbook compiled by Jean Baptiste Louis Osmont (1710-1773), a Parisian bookseller. Born into a family of booksellers he had the idea to write a bibliographical dictionary to make known the rarest books, the best editions and the auction prices of the books. It became this work which alphabetically lists the correct editions of over 7000 works. As planned, the entries are annotated with bibliographical information, notes on rarity and auction prices realised. It also gives historical and critical anecdotes about the books. Bigmore & Wyman p. 96: A bibliographical work on rare and best editions, but with little that is specially typographical. It is now superceded by Brunet's manual. And Archer Taylor in his 'Catalogues of Rare Books' says: had a large share in determining the character of later French catalogues of rare books. In this success it resembles Vogt's Catalogus, which similarly determined the character of later French catalogues in Germany during the eighteenth century. Osmont's title suggests and his preface states clearly that he was making a list of choice books suitable for a good private library was well as a list of rare books. (p. 25). In his compilation Osmont was helped by Barthelemy Mercier, Librarian of the Abbey of St.-Genevieve and Albert François Floncel, the Royal censor and owner of a large library of Italian Books. (Brunet 31330; Quérard, VI, 506; Horne p. 539). Very good copy of this bibliography that gives information on the booktrade in the eighteenth century.

        The Narrative of the Honourable John Byron ... containing An Account of the Great Distresses suffered by himself and his companions on the Coast of Patagonia, from the year 1740, till their arrival in England, 1746. With a description of St. Jago de Chile... also a relation of the loss of the Wager Man of War, one of Admiral Anson's Squadron

      London: S. Baker, 1768. Octavo, with a frontispiece; contemporary dark calf, rubbed; old rebacking, spine worn at top; various owners' signatures including a presentation to 'Arthur Cadogan from Genl. Fox'. Byron's famous narrative. First edition. 'Admiral Byron's narrative of the loss of the Wager is one of the most thrilling accounts in the language, and supplied his illustrious descendant with many particulars for the shipwreck in Don Juan' (Sabin). Byron, later a noted Pacific explorer in his own right, and eventually governor of Newfoundland, was known as "foul weather Jack"; he was a midshipman aboard the Wager and his narrative provides a notable supplement to the main account of Anson's voyage. Byron gives 'an account of pillaging, treachery, and murder by the crew, most of whom claimed that since their pay ceased the moment the ship was lost they were no longer subject to military discipline and it was every man for himself. It told of Byron's own living off the sea, without shelter or clothing, on the 'most unprofitable spot on the globe of the earth'; of his going without a full meal for thirteen months; of his living three years in the lands of the Spaniards… and of his eventual return to England… almost five years after the shipwreck' (R.E. Gallagher, Byron's Journal, Hakluyt Society, 1964). It was for this Byron (and not for the poet as was long assumed) that Cook named Byron Bay on the north coast of New South Wales.

        Viaggio Intorno al Mondo Fatto Dalla Nave Inglese il Delfino Comandata dal Capo Squadra Byron

      Firenze: Giuseppe Allegrini, 1768. Square octavo, engraved frontispiece, 4, 152 pp., a few ink marks on the title-page but remarkably fresh throughout, untrimmed, in serviceable modern boards. Would you like a biscotti? Most uncommon contemporary Italian edition of the famous account of Byron's circumnavigation by Charles Clerke. As would be expected, the edition includes an excellent new version of the famous frontispiece of an English sailor offering a towering Patagonian couple a biscuit. First published in London in 1767, and quickly followed by a French translation, this Italian edition is very scarce. It would appear to be based on the first London edition (because it does not include a short appendix that was included in the second London edition, also of 1767). We have never seen another copy offered for sale. This famous unauthorised account of "Foul-Weather Jack" Byron's command of the Dolphin on the 1764-66 circumnavigation of the globe was published anonymously but is usually attributed to midshipman Charles Clerke who later sailed on all three of Cook's voyages. Byron's voyage to the Pacific was the first major English voyage in the region since Anson, and would become the first part of Hawkesworth's famous compendium of South Sea voyages. This account became the basis for a dozen or more European editions and translations over the next twenty years. Clerke later served with Captain Cook on all three of his voyages, succeeding him as commander of the third voyage but shortly after dying of tuberculosis at Petropavlovsk in August 1779. Byron's expedition was an important precursor of the voyages of Wallis, Carteret and Cook, but its immediate contemporary impact was the sensation created by rumours of Patagonian giants encountered by the expedition. These tall stories gained currency from a report sent in jest by Clerke to the Royal Society (and printed in the Philosophical Transactions for 1767), and from a similar account published in this book. Extraordinarily, the stories seem to have been encouraged by the British government to divert attention from Byron's taking possession of the Falklands (Malvinas), politically the most sensitive and controversial aspect of his voyage. The amusing affair of the Patagonian giants embroiled many great figures of the Enlightenment including Voltaire (see discussion by Helen Wallis in Byron's Journal, ed. Gallagher, appendix III, and by P.G. Adams, Travelers and Travel Liars, ch. II).

        Viage al estrecho de Magallanes... en los años de 1579 y 1580

      Madrid: Imprenta Real de la Gazeta, 1768. Small quarto, with three folding plates; a fine large copy, with ample margins, probably one of the large copies, printed on thicker paper, as noted by Sabin; two unobtrusive old stamps on verso of title; contemporary vellum, with original ties and the title lettered in ink on spine. A Mendaña veteran maps the Straits of Magellan. First edition, a lovely tall copy bound in contemporary limp vellum, from the library of the Infantes in exile (see below). This is the first printing - from the manuscript in the Royal Library, Madrid - of this highly important sixteenth-century description of the Straits of Magellan and the first attempt to found a Spanish settlement on is shores. Sarmiento had sailed with Mendaña on the expedition which charted the Solomons in 1568. In 1579 the Viceroy of Peru ordered Sarmiento to the Straits of Magellan to intercept Francis Drake, but he arrived too late and Drake had already continued his circumnavigation. Following his instructions to the letter, Sarmiento then explored and mapped the Strait, before sailing for Spain to convince the government to form settlements there. A sixteen-ship fleet, with Sarmiento as governor of the colonists, sailed from Cadiz in 1581 - but the settlement failed, and Sarmiento fell into English hands and was a prisoner for five years. Nonetheless, Sarmiento's charting of the region was, as J.H. Parry signals (The Discovery of South America, London, 1979, pp. 285-9) 'the most serious and thorough exploration of Magellan's Strait in the sixteenth century - indeed the most thorough exploration ever made before the voyage of the Beagle in the nineteenth century.' In fact the officers of the Beagle were lost in admiration for Sarmiento's explorations, but also for his vainglorious attempts at settlement. Philip Parker King concluded: 'This was the first, and perhaps will be the last, attempt made to occupy a country, offering no encouragement for a human being; a region, where the soil is swampy, cold, and unfit for cultivation, and whose climate is thoroughly cheerless…'. The ghastly fate of the settlement is recounted in the appendix also printed here, which is the harrowing account of Tomé Hernandez, the only survivor of the settlement established by Sarmiento at Rey Don Felipe (or Port Famine as it was aptly named by his rescuer, Thomas Cavendish). An English translation of this work is found in Clements Markham, Narratives of the Voyages of Pedro Sarmiento de Gambóa, Hakluyt Society, 1895 (pp. 1-205, 352-75). This copy was once owned by Antonio Pascual de Borbón (1755-1817), with his stamp, showing the letters 'S.D.S.Y.D.A.' enclosed within a crowned wreath, alongside the stamp used by the three Infantes, Fernando (later Ferdinand VII of Spain), Antonio (as above) and Francisco, while in exile during the Napoleonic occupation of Spain.

These tall stories gained currency from a report sent in jest by Clerke to the Royal Society (and printed in the Philosophical Transactions for 1767), and from a similar account published in this book. Extraordinarily, the stories seem to have been encouraged by the British government to divert attention from Byron's taking possession of the Falklands (Malvinas), politically the most sensitive and controversial aspect of his voyage. The amusing affair of the Patagonian giants embroiled many great figures of the Enlightenment including Voltaire (see discussion by Helen Wallis in Byron's Journal, ed. Gallagher, appendix III, and by P.G. Adams, Travelers and Travel Liars, ch. II). [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        CONSIDERATIONS ON THE PRESENT STATE OF THE CONTROVERSY BETWEEN THE PROTESTANTS AND PAPISTS OF GREAT BRITAIN AND IRELAND; PARTICULARLY ON THE QUESTION HOW FAR THE LATTER ARE ENTITLED TO A TOLERATION UPON PROTESTANT PRINCIPLES

      London: Printed for A. Millar; and T. Cadell, 1768.. London: Printed for A. Millar; and T. Cadell, 1768.. vii,[1],296,[2]pp. plus 25*-26* Octavo. Contemporary red goatskin decorated in gilt, with standing and seated figures of Liberty, an owl and a cock, for Hollis by John Matthewman. Narrow cracks at crowns and toes of joints, some darkening and slight rubbing at extremities, otherwise a very good copy. Oval signet stamp on preliminary blank. First (British) edition - a Dublin edition appeared the same year. This copy is in an example of the distinctive bindings executed by John Matthewman for the wealthy and somewhat eccentric Thomas Hollis, whose enthusiasm for the principles of liberty extended to having copies of works of which he approved specially bound and presented to libraries and private parties on both sides of the Atlantic. His enthusiasm for this title is reflected by the fact that he presented another copy, in an identical binding, to the British Library (pictured in Nixon) and a copy to the Earl of Shaftesbury (Maggs 1212:138). Boyers and Nichols's records indicate 750 copies were printed. Blackburne (1705-87), Archdeacon of Cleveland, was a prolific controversialist and generally regarded as unsympathetic to the Catholic cause. The extended title indicates this work is based on two discourses delivered to his clergy in 1765 and 1768. In 1780 he published a highly critical examination of Johnson's treatment of Milton.

        Viage al estrecho de Magallanes. en los años de 1579 y 1580.

      Imprenta Real de la Gazeta, Madrid 1768 - Small quarto, with three folding plates; a fine large copy, with ample margins, probably one of the large copies, printed on thicker paper, as noted by Sabin; two unobtrusive old stamps on verso of title; contemporary vellum, with original ties and the title lettered in ink on spine. A Mendaña veteran maps the Straits of Magellan. First edition, a lovely tall copy bound in contemporary limp vellum, from the library of the Infantes in exile (see below). This is the first printing - from the manuscript in the Royal Library, Madrid - of this highly important sixteenth-century description of the Straits of Magellan and the first attempt to found a Spanish settlement on is shores. Sarmiento had sailed with Mendaña on the expedition which charted the Solomons in 1568. In 1579 the Viceroy of Peru ordered Sarmiento to the Straits of Magellan to intercept Francis Drake, but he arrived too late and Drake had already continued his circumnavigation. Following his instructions to the letter, Sarmiento then explored and mapped the Strait, before sailing for Spain to convince the government to form settlements there. A sixteen-ship fleet, with Sarmiento as governor of the colonists, sailed from Cadiz in 1581 - but the settlement failed, and Sarmiento fell into English hands and was a prisoner for five years. Nonetheless, Sarmiento's charting of the region was, as J.H. Parry signals (The Discovery of South America, London, 1979, pp. 285-9) 'the most serious and thorough exploration of Magellan's Strait in the sixteenth century - indeed the most thorough exploration ever made before the voyage of the Beagle in the nineteenth century.' In fact the officers of the Beagle were lost in admiration for Sarmiento's explorations, but also for his vainglorious attempts at settlement. Philip Parker King concluded: 'This was the first, and perhaps will be the last, attempt made to occupy a country, offering no encouragement for a human being; a region, where the soil is swampy, cold, and unfit for cultivation, and whose climate is thoroughly cheerless?'. The ghastly fate of the settlement is recounted in the appendix also printed here, which is the harrowing account of Tomé Hernandez, the only survivor of the settlement established by Sarmiento at Rey Don Felipe (or Port Famine as it was aptly named by his rescuer, Thomas Cavendish). An English translation of this work is found in Clements Markham, Narratives of the Voyages of Pedro Sarmiento de Gambóa, Hakluyt Society, 1895 (pp. 1-205, 352-75). This copy was once owned by Antonio Pascual de Borbón (1755-1817), with his stamp, showing the letters 'S.D.S.Y.D.A.' enclosed within a crowned wreath, alongside the stamp used by the three Infantes, Fernando (later Ferdinand VII of Spain), Antonio (as above) and Francisco, while in exile during the Napoleonic occupation of Spain.
