        A contemporary collection of pamphlets on the East India Company

      London,: T. Cadell, J. Debrett and others, 1772-, 1791.. 11 works bound together in two volumes, quarto, five folding maps and a folding table; a beautiful set in contemporary half calf, marbled boards, some light wear at joints. A contemporary assembly of eleven early works relating to the East India Company, handsomely bound together as a pair of volumes, each of which has the bookplate of Fasque, the Gladstone family house in Aberdeenshire where Prime Minister Gladstone spent much of his childhood. The Fasque bookplates are pasted over earlier bookplates; the books may well have been bought by Sir John Gladstone who owned the house from the 1830s.The collection gives insight into the importance of the East India Company to late-eighteenth-century exploration and settlement. The great figure of the Company in this period was Alexander Dalrymple; one of the works here is by James Rennell, the hydrographer's onetime assistant.Conditions in India were a matter of urgent concern in this period. The stocks of the East India Company had risen sharply in the 1760s, but by 1773 better economic research was demonstrating that the East India Company was in fact haemorrhaging money due to poor management and the increasing difficulty of producing the revenues expected in Great Britain. This led, as ever, to a rustling among the pamphleteers, present here in great number.Included is one of the signature works of the period, James Macpherson's History and Management of the East-India Company (1779). Macpherson is better known as the translator from the Scottish Gaelic of Ossian, but around 1777 he also became the London agent for the then governor-general in India, producing this important work. Also present is the speculator William Bolts, effectively deported from India in 1768, but whose Considerations on India Affairs (here in the second edition of 1772) was one of the most scathing, if mercenary, attacks on British rule in the region.The second volume includes a suite of shorter works, many of some scarcity. The very scarce Index of Names to a Map of Hindoostan (1785) by the cartographer James Rennell, whose work in mapping India was the backbone of the East India Company, is dedicated to Sir Joseph Banks and remained the standard for some fifty years.There are also pamphlets by the judge and legal historian Thomas Parker (Evidence of our Transactions, 1782); the orientalist and linguist Sir William Jones (Discourse On the Institution of a Society, 1784); the playwright and polemicist Richard Brinsley Sheridan (Comparative Statement of the Two Bills, 1788); and the first major work of another orientalist, Jonathan Scott (Translation of the Memoirs of Eradut Khan, 1786). There are besides two scarce works by George Crauford, An Enquiry into the Situation of the East India Company (1789) and his Second Enquiry (1790), as well as A Short Review of the Trade (1791, attributed to John Prinsep), and Thomas Bate Rous' Explanation of the Mistaken Principle on which the Commutation Act was Founded (c. 1789).A fuller collation is available on request.Goldsmiths-Kress, 11858, 10875, 14243, 14710, 13949.

        The History of the Late War in North-America, and the Islands of the West-Indies, including the campaigns of MDCCLXIII and MDCCLXIV against His Majesty's enemies

      London: Printed for W. Strahan and T. Cadell, 1772. Large quarto. (11 1/2 x 9 inches). 1p. errata at back. 18 folding engraved maps. Contemporary mottled calf, spine with raised bands in seven compartments, red morocco lettering piece in the second, the others with a repeat overall decoration in gilt, housed in a full black morocco box (expert restoration along the joints). A beautiful, crisp copy of the best contemporary account of the French and Indian War, justly celebrated for its cartography and textual content, and one of the great rarities of colonial Americana. This copy in a lovely contemporary binding and complete with all maps and the elusive errata leaf. Virtually all of Mante's account relates to the war in North America, with detailed narratives of Braddock's campaign and the other frontier and Canadian campaigns of the conflict. The work is particularly desirable for its contemporary descriptions of Pontiac's War, a campaign in which the author participated as major of brigade to Colonel Dudley Bradstreet. In addition, the introduction includes an interesting account of young George Washington's escape in 1753 from assassination by an Indian who acted as his interpreter and guide. Mante evidently took great care to gather information that was both historically and cartographically accurate for the present work. The maps are praised by all bibliographers as being by far the best relating to the war, and include several seminal maps which are the most accurate produced to that time. They comprise: 1) Fort Beau Sejour, & the adjacent Country Taken Possession of by Colonel Monckton 2) Lake Ontario to the Mouth of the River St. Lawrence 3) [Map of Lake George and vicinity] 4) A Plan of Fort Edward & Its Environs on Hudsons River 5) Communication Between Albany & Oswego 6) Attack on Louisbourg [by Amherst & Boscawen] 7) The Attack of Ticonderoga [by Major General Abercromby] 8) Plan of Fort Pitt or Pittsbourg 9) Guadaloupe 10) Attack on Quebec [by Wolfe & Saunders] 11) A Sketch of the Cherokee Country 12) The River Saint Lawrence from Lake Ontario to the Island of Montreal 13) A Plan of the Attack upon Fort Levi 14) River St. Lawrence from Montreal to the Island of St. Barnaby ... & the Islands of Jeremy 15) A View of the Coast of Martinico Taken by Desire of Rear Adml Rodney 16) Part, of the West Coast, of the Island of Saint Lucia 17) Plan of the Retaking Newfoundland [by Colville & Amherst] 18) Attack of the Havanna [by Albemarle & Pococke] Sabin writes of this great rarity: "Copies with all the maps are scarce. It is probable that but few were printed, though the large and beautiful plans and military maps (which gave it so great a value), must have made its production a work of much expense."

        A Voyage to the Cape of Good Hope Towards the Anarctic Polar Circle and Round the World but Chiefly Into the Country of the Hottentots and Caffres, From the Year 1772, to 1776

      Andrew Sparrman was a Swedish physician and naturalist.  He arrived in South Africa on 10 January 1772.  He joined Captain Cook on the Resolution on 22 November 1772.  Returning in 1775, he undertook further exploration that lasted until April 1776, taking him as far as Kaffraria - what is today the southeast part of Eastern Cape of South Africa.  Sparrman's account of Cook's voyage, as well as his exploration in Africa, are described in this book. Included is a brief glossary of Hottentot language and full page plates of indigenous animals, as well as the original errata and instructions to the bookbinder. Two volumes, in a recent fine half leather binding over marbled paper boards with leather corners, raised and gilt spine bands, gilt rules, and red spine labels.  The binding is nearly as-new.  The contents are exceptionally clean and well-preserved, with only trivial scattered hints of spotting.  The pages are bright and clean, with immaculate illustrated plates, including the striking Volume I frontispiece plate "Prospect of the Country at the Cape of Good Hope".  The large folding map at the end of Volume I is also clean and intact with no tears.  Sparrman's work was one of the earliest on Southern Africa and the Southern Oceans.

        Carte De La Californie Suivant 1. La Carte manuscrite de l'Americque de Mathieu Neron Pecci olen dressee a Florence en 1604, 2. Sanson 1656 . . .

      Importante mappa per la cartografia della California, raffiguarante l'evoluzione della zona tra il 1604 ed il 1767. Pubblicata nel supplemento della celebre enciclopedia di Diderot e d'Alambert. Incisione in rame, in buono stato di conservazione. Historically important depiction of the 5 most influential cartographic depictions of California, showing the evolution of how California was mapped between 1604 and 1767. The earliset map is (upper right corner) is based upon a manuscript map by Mathieu Neron Pecci, drawn in Florence in 1604. This map also forms the basis of a map popularized in 1770 by Rigobert Bonne. The second map is Nicholas Sanson's map of California as an Island, based upon his larger map of 1656. This map was probably the single most influential projection of California as an Island. The third map map (lower right) is a portion of Guillaume De L'Isles map of America, published in 1700. While not truly peninsular in nature, it was influential in the shift back toward depicting California as a Peninsula. The fourth map (upper center) is a portion of Fra. Eusebio Kino's map, generally credited with being the map which dispelled the California as and Island myth. Issued in 1705, the map is based upon Father Kino's overland expedition from the mainland to the top of the Gulf of Cortez. The fifth map is one of the most interesting and enduring maps of California and the Baja (left side). Initially issued by the Society of Jesuits in 1767, its was popularized by Isaak Tirion and was perhaps the most interesting of all maps of Baja California in the 2nd half of the 18th Century. This map was 1 of 10 maps to appear in the Supplement to Diderot's monumental encyclopedia, one of the most influential and widely distirbuted works of the second half of the 18th Century. Diderot's goal was to examine and display the popular geographical conceptions of several different parts of the world where the knowledge of the region's geogaphy was still largely unknown and evolving. Other maps treat the Northwest Passage, Northeast Passage and the NW Coast of America, among other topics. Parigi Paris 390 290

Si l'on trouve plus aisément d'anciens livres de comptes professionnels, de tels livres de comptes domestiques, très riches d'enseignement sur la vie quotidienne sous l'ancien régime sont aujourd'hui beaucoup plus rares et recherchés. La rédactrice de ce livre de compte évoque en octobre 1772 un voyage de Maneville à Paris, puis un voyage en Angleterre (pour un montant de 365 livres), le 5 juin 1773 un déplacement de Paris à Everly, en octobre un passage à l'hôtel d'Harcourt et, ainsi qu'en 1774 et 1775 le paiement de porteurs à Versailles, en 1775 un transport de chaise à porteur (sic !) de Versailles à Rheims pour un montant de 58 livres, divers voyages de Langlois à Everly, le coût d'un emballage de robes pour Reims (28 livres) etc. etc.. On apprend également que l'auteur du manuscrit s'est rendu à Bailleuil, Theuville et Villenoxe [ Villenauxe ]. Les frais de bois s'élèvent à 222 livres pour l'année 1771 (dont 2 livres et 8 sols pour les deux cierges de la Chandeleur). Pour les dépenses de bouche, on relève notamment l'achat d'huîtres, de "glaces en gouté", de pain de sucre et de thé, de "glaces en brioche pour gouté". Les achats de toiles et mousselines concernent des fichus, corsets, "toille de laval", toile pour festons de deux "falbanats", ou pour feston de 12 chemises d'hommes, de "polonnaise de basin", "pour festons en monture de 13 tours de gorge" etc. etc. Le blanchissage évoque le racommodage de "mon habit de paysane" (plus loin "de mon habit de troubadour") comme celui de "bas de soie", de "Polonaise de croisé" ou d'une "coeffure de maline brodée", etc.. Les achats de souliers et gants concernent des "bas de Soye blanc de Nîme", 14 paires de souliers, de dessus de soulier brodés, 24 paires de "chosons", de "gans pour monter à cheval" etc. etc.. Pour les corps et ouvrages de Baleines, on note un "corps à monter à cheval" pour 18 livres ou le racommodage d'un habit de Cochoise. Le chapitre des Robes est très fourni, avec des achats de tissus plus ou moins importants (jusqu'à 30 aunes pour un montant de 123 livres), la mention d'un achat "payé à Mme Le Vieux couturière rue du Bac vis-à-vis l'Hôtel des Mousquetaires la façon d'un désabillé de taftas noir", du "taftas noir gris blanc chiné et pistache", de toile "pour façon d'un déshabillér de satin bleu, d'une robe de dauphine rose, d'une robe de musulmane à panier, d'une robe de pou de soie...", d'une "robe de perse verte", de robes en "taftas d'Angleterre", en "taftas d'Italie" ; on trouve aussi l'achat de nombreux bonnets, chapeaux, fichus, "coeffure de blonde", plumes, "paire de manchette de blonde de chenille" ; le chapitre des Dépenses Extraordinaires évoque notamment, "la nourriture de 20 jours de mon cheval à l'école militaire", 24 livres "pour avoir fait copier et relier l'instruction des Ursulines", on note même l'achat "du présent registre" pour 6 livres, l'achat des Sermons de Massillon, ou de "La Religion méditée en 6 vollumes" etc. etc. ; au titre des dépenses d'Education, elle évoque un Maître d'Ecriture pour 2 mois", un maître de Clavecin pour 2 mois, un maître de musique pour 2 mois, un "maître de danse anglois", un "maître de Harpe", "M. de La Roche maître de Dessein", "M. Baltasar Maître de danse", "M. de Baumont Maître d'Histoire", "M. Grécour, Maître de danse", un "maître de viole turque", un maître de mathématiques et de "phisique" ; Les dépenses de mercerie et de pommades sont conséquentes. En 1775, les pertes au jeu "déduction faite du gain" s'élève à 572 livres. Tous ces détails sont naturellement très loin d'être exhaustifs, et l'on trouvera dans ce document un foule remarquable de détails pittoresques et passionnants qui permettent de rendre remarquablement, à qui peut lire entre les lignes, toute l'atmosphère particulière à un certain milieu à la fin du règne du règne de Louis XV et en début de règne de Louis XVI.

        Plan kommercheskago vospitatelnago uchishcha. [Russian, i.e.: A Plan for a Commercial School].

      [Moscow, 1772]. Folio. Uncut and unbound, as issued. Stitched and with a neat rice paper backstrip. A bit of scattered brownspotting. A very nice copy. (2), 16 + final blank. Housed in a custom-made cardboards folder with green paper over boards.. Very rare first printing of the first official plan for what seems to be the world's first business school, being the official plan for the establishment of Russia's first commercial school, predating what is otherwise known as the world's first business school (Paris, 1819) by 47 years. The plan for the school was thought out by the Russian school reformer Ivan Betskoy (1704-1795), Catherine II's advisor on education and President of the Imperial Academy of Arts for thirty years (1764-94). He is famous world-wide as the founder of Russia's first unified system of public education and as the institutionalizer of the Enlightenment in Russia. Having in 1747 settled in Paris, Betskoy spent 15 years in commerce with the Encyclopédistes and Rousseau, by whom he was greatly inspired. Taking on the educational theories of Montaigne and Locke as well, Betskoy returned to Russia in 1762 (when Peter the III summoned him back and put him in charge of imperial palaces and gardens). Upon his arrival in St. Petersburg, he renewed his acquaintance with the sovereign's wife Catherine (the Great), with whose mother, Johanna Elisabeth, he had been on so friendly terms before his departure to Paris that it had given rise to rumours that Catherine was his biological daughter. Betskoy helped Catherine depose Peter in that same year, making her Empress Catherine II.It has still not been determined exactly what position Betskoy held at Catherine's court, but his influence was enormous and he went on to become a pillar of the Russian establishment. He is generally considered the unofficial education minister to the Empress, and he was one of the few people who had unlimited access to the Tsarina on daily basis for most of her reign. Only toward the end of the 1780'ies, when Catherine became increasingly less tolerant towards the ideas of the Enlightenment, did Betskoy's influence begin to wane. During his many years at court, he completely reformed the educational programme of Russia, establishing Russia's first unified system of public education. On the basis of educational thinkers such as Locke, Rousseau, and Montaigne, he proposed the establishments of several forms of schools, which the Empress endorsed. One of these schools was a business school - as far as we have been able to investigate, the first of its kind in the world. It is this business school that is presented in the present publication for the first time. With this, the world's first business school, the great educational reformer Betskoy had in mind the creation of a "middle class", a vision expressed in his famous statement "we have only two classes of society, either peasants or noblemen". The school was to include mainly the sons of merchants and expressed his efforts to get the sons of Russian merchants a formal education in commercial skills. The commercial school designed by Betskoy was constructed with financing from the philanthropist Prokofii Demidov. All details of the business school are presented in the present plan, including a spreadsheet of initial costings at the end. It was to initially take 100 boys between the ages of 6 and 21. The younger boys were to be instructed in the basics (reading, writing, arithmetic, foreign languages, history, geography), whereas the older boys would study economics and commerce, including practical skills (such as Italian double-entry bookkeeping - see p. 10). The school, which was to be situated near Moscow's foundling hospital, began receiving its first pupils in 1773 and remained in Moscow until 1799, when it was transferred to St. Petersburg

        Poemetti filosofici

      Modena: Eredi di Bartolomeo Soliani, 1772 First edition. Contemporary speckled sheep over speckled boards, gilt flat spine with reddish-brown paste-paper lettering piece. . Octavo. Wood-engraved head- and tail-pieces A few wormholes, front cover a little rubbed. Occasional light foxing, but overall a very good, clean copy. With early twentieth-century stamp Fratelli Campori on front free endpaper. Giovanni Battista Vicini (1709-1782), poet and translator, was called by Baretti "uno dei magni poetastri d'Italia." He produced several collections of poems, both sacred and secular. He worked at the Ducal court in Modena and dedicated this work to Ipolito Giuliano Bellincini-Bagnesi, chamberlain to Duke Francesco III. The title indicates that the poems contained here are of a scientific nature. One of the longer poems is on the botany and use of trees, entitled "La favela, ed il canto degli arbori et dei fiori," which is both on the subjects of agriculture and natural history. Another poem, "I colori" deals with Newton's color theory, in particular his diffraction of sunlight with a prism.

        Mundi Vetus, Recens: Hinc Posterum Universale Systema. (..) Tabula Riveriana Prima

      Verona. 1772. Folio. Plate mark 70 x 47,5 cm. The whole sheet 75 x 53 cm. Passe partout 81 x 58 cm. Etching / engraving. Uncut margins. Green passe partout. Two small repairs to the image area.. One small loss of surface area in the lower right corner (ca. 1 x 1 cm). Some foxing, mainly to the margins. Two small holes in the upper margin.. A wonderful print in contemporary hand colouring, which is quite uncommon. Most copies are uncoloured. It is an "allegorical composition on the order of the universe, after Boscarati,; at centre the crouched Atlas carries a globe on his back; the globe support a seasaw upon which sit Mars and Ganymede, a wind-god blows on a torch held by Hymen, who crouches on the ground and tries to shelter the torch with his wing; nearby, a nude woman with many breasts and with legs bound with a spiked belt leans on the globe; up in the sky a man brandishing a stick reclines on a cloud; on the ground, to the right, a cow (agriculture), a fish and a net (fishing) and the head of a boar (hunting)" (British Museum). There is a long explanation of the allegory in latin below the image. A man with text on his sole - "Ego Lazarus Riviera Calculando Invent" - is standing in front of a very large canvas where most of the figures are depicted. The canvas hangs from the top of the image. The print is described as the "Tabula Riveriana Prima" and executed after a painting by Felix Boscarati. "Tabula Riveriana" is a famous serie of four allegorical paintingsy Boscarati. The present print was drawn, etched and engraved by Vicentinus Christophorus ab Aqua. Boscarati was a painter active in Verona in the 18th. century. Vicentinus Christophorus ab Aqua was a reproductive etcher active in Italy in the same period. Scarce

        Apologie de Monsieur le Comte de Bernstorf. Schutzschrift des Herrn Grafen von Bernstorf. [With introduction by Ludwig von Hess].

      (Location and printer unknown), 1772. Bound in contemporary half cloth with gilt spine and five raised bands. With librarian Bølling's signature to pasted down front free end-paper. Some occasional brownspotting, otherwise a fine and clean copy. Text in French and German on opposite pages.. Scarce first edition of Bernstorff's defence speech before the King against accusations from fellow ministers. The book was declared to be a forgery, and all copies were ordered confiscated hence only a few remains in circulation. Danish chamberlain Frederik Danneskjold-Samsøe raised various different accusations against Bernstorff, the most serious being the state debt exceeded to a dangerous level due to Bernstorff's economic policy. In the present book Bernstorff managed to refute all Danneskjold-Samsøe's accusations and the many intrigues he had been exposed to. Unfortunatly Bernstorff did not live to see the effect of his publication.Goldsmiths'-Kress no. 10841.0

        Poemetti filosofici

      Modena: Eredi di Bartolomeo Soliani, 1772 First edition. Contemporary speckled sheep over speckled boards, gilt flat spine with reddish-brown paste-paper lettering piece. . Octavo. Wood-engraved head- and tail-pieces A few wormholes, front cover a little rubbed. Occasional light foxing, but overall a very good, clean copy. With early twentieth-century stamp Fratelli Campori on front free endpaper. Giovanni Battista Vicini (1709-1782), poet and translator, was called by Baretti "uno dei magni poetastri d'Italia." He produced several collections of poems, both sacred and secular. He worked at the Ducal court in Modena and dedicated this work to Ipolito Giuliano Bellincini-Bagnesi, chamberlain to Duke Francesco III. The title indicates that the poems contained here are of a scientific nature. One of the longer poems is on the botany and use of trees, entitled "La favela, ed il canto degli arbori et dei fiori," which is both on the subjects of agriculture and natural history. Another poem, "I colori" deals with Newton's color theory, in particular his diffraction of sunlight with a prism.

        Beschreibung von Arabien

      Copenhagen: printed at the Hofbuchdruckerey by Nicolaus Möller,, 1772. Aus eigenen Beobachtungen und im Lande selbst gesammelten Nachrichten abgefasset. Quarto (249 × 186 mm). Modern pale tan half morocco on marbled boards, darker tan label to spine, floral devices gilt in compartments, red edge-stain. Title page vignette of Geography and Astronomy, arms of the House Oldenburg as head-piece to the dedication, 18 plates, 4 of them folding, 2 of these coloured, 7 maps, all but one of them folding, the large map of Yemen at the rear being coloured in outline. Small library stamps of "Bibliothek Prof. Engels" to title and verso of the dedication leaf, light browning, occasional foxing, but overall a very good copy. First edition. Niebuhr trained as a surveyor in order to support himself into his majority, then receiving a small inheritance. He next studied mathematics at Göttingen before joining the Hanoverian corps of engineers. In 1760 he was invited to join the scientific expedition being sent out by Frederick V of Denmark. Originally intended for the purpose of illustrating certain passages from the Old Testament, it developed truly encyclopaedic ambitions, the party consisting of Niebuhr as surveyor, Friedrich Christian von Haven, a Danish linguist and orientalist, Peter Forrskål, a Linnaean naturalist, Christian Carl Kramer, a doctor and zoologist, Georg Baurenfeind, the expeditions artist, and Berggren, a Swedish ex-soldier. In the event Niebuhr was the only one to return. From Constantinople they proceeded to Egypt and spent a year there, ascending the Nile and visiting Suez and Mount Sinai. "Disguised as pilgrims … they left Suez in October 1762 for Jiddah, from where they advanced down the coast in a tarrad (an open boat), making frequent landings as far as Al Luhayyah in Northern Yemen" (Howgego). On their way to Mocha, Niebuhr and Forrskål contracted malaria, and on arrival von Haven died, swiftly followed by Forrskål, and by late 1763 the whole party were so ill that they were carried onto a vessel bound for Bombay. On the voyage Berggren and Baurenfeind died, followed by Kramer in early 1764, leaving Niebuhr as the only survivor, seemingly protected by his adoption of native dress and diet. Continuing alone he visited Muscat, Bushire, Shiraz, Persepolis, Babylon, Baghdad, Mosul, Aleppo, Cyprus, and Jerusalem. "Niebuhr described the town and its inhabitants in minute detail and made a map of the surrounding area. Continuing northward along the coast, he crossed the Taurus mountains of Turkey to Brusa and Constantinople, then made his way homeward through Poland and Germany." Niebuhr published in Denmark, under the patronage of the schizophrenic king, Christian VII, to whom the book is dedicated, the cost of the plates being defrayed by the government. Niebuhr was a remarkably conscientious and accurate observer, and this official account of his travels has long been considered one of the classic accounts of the geography, people, antiquities and archaeology of the region, his maps remaining in use for over 100 years.
