Age toning to the page edges and end papers, smart bookplate inside belonging to one Robert Montgomery on board the 'Convoy'. Bancroft worked as a spy for Benjamin Franklin in Britain before the Revolution, and while serving as secretary to the American Commission in Paris. On 14 July 1763 he departed the colonies for British Guiana, where he became a doctor on a plantation. He soon expanded his practice to multiple plantations and wrote a study of the local environment. His discovery that the torpedo fish discharged electricity is notable, he also noted the transmission of yaws by flies on page 385 of this book. Bancroft grew tired of South America and left in 1766. He spent a year travelling between North America and South America before leaving for London. During the latter period, he was also a spy for Britain, reporting on dealings between France and the United States. Member of the P.B.F.A. GUYANA [Guiana] [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        The history and adventures of an atom. In two volumes [First Issue]

      Printed for Robinson and Roberts MDCCXLIX [but 1769], London - First Issue (with the erroneous date 1749 on the title page). 12mo: viii,227;[ii],190pp. Half title in Volume II only. Newly bound by Fitterer in period-style speckled calf, spine in six compartments divided by raised bands ruled in gilt, with green morocco letter piece gilt, top edge gilt, end papers renewed. A nearly pristine copy, the pages very lightly and evenly toned. Rothschild 1923. ESTC Citation No. T55310. Although Adventures of an Atom is generally accepted as by Smollett, there is no conclusive proof that he wrote it. "There is no reference to it in his letters or those of his correspondents, but it was attributed to him in the London Chronicle (8–11 April 1769). With echoes of the humour of Rabelais, it is a rumbustious, at times scatological, satire on British political life, transposed to Japan. [The 'atom' is the supposed narrator, a witness to the events and somehow able to communicate them to modern listeners. ] It may be that Smollett, sensing that his remaining days were few, revived his vituperative energies to target enemies, including Pitt, Cumberland, Mansfield, and Wilkes. If his, it was a pungent valediction. He took his leave of Hume in an affectionate letter of 31 August 1768 before going into ‘a perpetual exile’ (Letters, 136)." (ODNB) A Key to the pseudonyms is given by Thomas Seccombe in the bibliographical introduction to vol. XII of Smollett's Works. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        LES TRACASSERIES / UN JEU DE LA FORTUNE / ENCORE DES MENECHMES / LA NOCE SANS MARIAGE / LES TROIS MARIS

      Paris - 8vo, The boards are bowed & the rear joint is tender. Conts. browned at margins. Fourth play stained at bottom; else good+ condition. Louis-Benoit Picard (1769-1828) was a French playwright and member of the Academie-Francaise. He was born in Paris and wrote 85 plays, which were meticulously crafted and shrewdly observant of contemporary manners (see W. Staaks, "The Theatre of Louis-Benoit Picard"). This unique volume contains five of Picard's plays bound into one volume: (1) "Les Tracasseries, ou Monsieur et Madame Tatillon" which was presented for the first time in Paris, at the Comedie Francaise on June 25, 1804. This is the first edition, published in 1804, and is signed on the copyright page by the publisher, Mme. Masson (80 pages); (2) "Un Jeu de la Fortune, ou Les Marionnettes", presented for the first time in Paris, May 14, 1806. This is the first edition, published in 1806, in Paris, by Chez Martinet, and contains 121 pages; (3) "Encore Des Menechmes", a comedy presented for the first time in 1791. This edition published in Paris, in 1802, by the booksellers Huet, Ravinet and Charon (96 pages); (4) "La Noce Sans Mariage", presented for the first time in Paris in 1805. Published by Madame Masson in that year and signed by her on the copyright page (96 pages); (5) "Les Trois Maris", date of first presentation not stated. Published by the booksellers Huet and Charon - no year of publishing stated. WorldCat suggests 1800, although the website for the Comedie Francaise gives the year of the first performance as 1801 (104 pages). It is evident that these five plays were not published together, but were bound so at a later date, probably in 1806, or shortly thereafter. 19th century mottled calf with five plays bound in one volume [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Dziggetai

      - A detailed hand colored lithograph by Frederic Cuvier (1769-1832) & Geoffroy Saint-Hilaire (1772-1844) from their sweeping book "Histoire Naturelle des Mammiferes, avec les figures originales." that was published in Paris in 1824-42. Overall this print measures 12” x 18”. This rare publication of mammals was originally published in 72 parts (to be bound in seven volumes) under the auspices of the Museum d'Histoire Naturelle of Paris. The animals were drawn from life mainly at the zoo Jardin des Plantes in Paris. The majority of the descriptions were by Cuvier, with Geoffroy Saint-Hilaire editing the work and providing occasional articles (indicating by his initials at the end of each article). The two final parts were edited and seen through the press by Cuvier’s son. A quarto edit was started in 1826, but ceased publication (with the 13th part) in July 1833. These are among some of the most exquisitely rendered images of animals ever published. Cuvier has successfully brought each animal to life by his exceptional talent for detail without forgetting the characteristics that give them personality. Overall this print is in very good condition with some foxing and staining throughout.

        THE BOOK OF COMMON PRAYER, AND ADMINISTRATION OF THE SACRAMENTS, AND OTHER RITES AND CEREMONIES OF THE CHURCH, ACCORDING TO THE USE OF THE CHURCH OF ENGLAND. TOGETHER WITH THE PSALMS OF DAVID, POINTED AS THEY ARE TO BE SUNG OR SAID IN CHURCHES; AND THE FORM OR MANNER OF MAKING, ORDAINING, AND CONSECRATING OF BISHOPS, PRIESTS, AND DEACONS.

      Oxford: Printed by T. Wright and W. Gill, Printers to the University, 1769. - [206] leaves (printed in double columns) plus fifty-nine full-page engraved plates. Tall quarto. Contemporary black morocco (almost imperceptibly rebacked with original backstrip laid down); front and rear covers extensively decorated in gilt, 1 5/8-inch wide dentelle-style border of alternating large and thin vases holding flowers, within which is an elaborate central diamond-shape design composed of floral and rococo tools with two pairs of backward-looking tufted birds on branches, surrounded by floral and star-like tools; a.e.g. On the front cover, the center of the diamond-shape design is lettered "The Honorable Samuel Rous Esq. Barbados," surrounded by a stylized fern border. On the rear cover, the center of the diamond-shape design is lettered "One Thousand Seven Hundred & Seventy Two," also surrounded by a stylized fern border. Spine in six compartments with raised bands, extensively decorated in gilt with flowers, stars, circles, and different birds than on the covers. Inner dentelles gilt with "Greek key" roll, contemporary marbled pastedowns and free endpapers. Two corners rubbed and two corners almost imperceptibly repaired, otherwise in fine condition. Extra-illustrated with fifty-nine full- page engraved plates. A few minor dampstains on a few leaves at front and rear and occasional minor foxing, absolutely not affecting text or images. [bound with:] Brady, N., and N. Tate: A NEW VERSION OF THE PSALMS OF DAVID, FITTED TO THE TUNES USED IN CHURCHES. London: H. Woodfall, 1768. [26] leaves (printed in triple columns). A fine copy. A magnificently bound and extravagantly extra-illustrated copy of The Book of Common Prayer, prepared for presentation to, or perhaps commissioned by, Samuel Rous, President of His Majesty's Council and Commander-in-Chief (i.e. governor) of Barbados, from 1766 to 1768. He also served again in 1772, the year indicated on the rear cover. The Rous family, Quakers residing in Barbados, were leading planters on the island since the late 1630s. The fifty-nine plates bound in this volume to complement the text were originally executed for THE LITURGY OF THE CHURCH OF ENGLAND; ILLUSTRATED WITH FIFTY NINE HISTORICAL AND EXPLANATORY SCULPTURES, ENGRAVED BY MESS. RAVENETT, GRIGNION, SCOTIN, CANOTT, WALKER, AND W. RYLAND, printed in London in 1755 by Edward Ryland. According to the titlepage, included here as one of the extra-illustrated plates, this work was published according to an act of Parliament on May 1, 1755. However, no copies of this 1755 title are recorded in OCLC or ESTC. In addition to The Book of Common Prayer and the engravings from THE LITURGY OF THE CHURCH OF ENGLAND, this copy also contains a 1768 edition of A NEW VERSION OF THE PSALMS OF DAVID, first printed in 1698. Considering the recipient and the combined contents of the volume, these two texts and the extensive suite of engravings are bound in an appropriately sumptuous binding. Prepared for Samuel Rous, who served as governor of Barbados, the binding is a marvelous example of later 18th-century British bookbinding, with extensive gilt decoration on the covers and spine as described above. A fine copy of an elaborately decorated and illustrated volume, with a remarkable colonial-era provenance. GRIFFITHS, BOOK OF COMMON PRAYER 1769.5.
