Wedi eu llofa, au dethol, allan o waith rhai or Awduriaid ardder choccaf, a fu erioed yn yr Iaith Gymraeg. Jones, poet and literary editor, is remembered as compiler of the anthology Gorchestion beirdd Cymru (1773), elegantly printed by Stafford Prys of Shrewsbury. The opening pages contain a handful of pieces attributed to three early Welsh poets, Aneirin, Taliesin, and Llywarch Hen, but the volume is primarily dedicated to the works of the cywyddwyr, whose compositions between c.1350 and 1550 represent a golden era in the history of Welsh literature. Renaissance scholars of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, and their successors in the eighteenth, had long sought to publish this material which, having been assiduously collected by generations of copyists, remained out of sight in private libraries. The Gorchestion, a rare success, made public for the first time the works of sixteen cywyddwyr, among whom Dafydd ap Gwilym is given pre-eminence, 27 of the 103 pieces being in his name. See ODNB.

        An Account of the Voyages undertaken by the order of his Present Majesty for Making Discoveries in the Southern Hemisphere, and, successively performed by Commodore Byron, Captain Wallis, Captain Carteret, and Captain Cook, In the Dolphin, the Swallow, and the Endeavour: Drawn up from the Journals which were kept by the several Commanders, and from the Papers of Joseph Bankes, Esq.

      London: Printed for A. Strahan, and T. Cadell, 1773 - 3 volumes, quarto (294 × 228 mm). Contemporary sprinkled calf, red morocco labels, spines direct-numbered gilt, raised bands. Joints partly cracked but still very firm, spine ends a little chipped and corners rubbed, occasional light spotting and the odd stain, but a very good, wide-margined and crisp copy. 52 maps, charts and plates in all, 41 of them folding. First edition of the official account of Cook's first voyage, together with previous exploratory expeditions under Byron, Carteret and Wallis, compiled by John Hawkesworth. The primary purpose of Cook's voyage in Endeavour was the observation of the transit of Venus from Tahiti, and then to continue the enterprise of geographical investigation begun by Byron. This was to result in the discovery of the Society Islands, the circumnavigation of New Zealand, and the charting of the eastern coast of Australia. "Hawkesworth , an eminent London author, was chosen by Lord Sandwich and commissioned by the Admiralty to prepare these narratives for publication [He] was expected to add polish to the rough narratives of sea men, and to present the accounts in a style befitting the status of the voyages as official government expeditions, intended to embellish England's prestige as a maritime power." Although the book was a huge success, fast becoming a best-seller, it was disastrous for its editor: "He was publicly attacked on three different counts: by the captains for tampering with the texts of their journals, by prudish readers for reprinting descriptions of the sexual freedoms of the South Sea islanders, and by devout churchmen for impiety in the general introduction to the work, in which Hawkesworth had rashly challenged the doctrine of providential intervention. He was devastated by this critical barrage, and it was thought to be the main cause of his death. The rumour recorded by Malone that he killed himself with an overdose of opium is uncorroborated, but Fanny Burney's conviction that his health was destroyed by the vilification he suffered seems well founded" (ODNB).

        Carl Magnus Craelius (1773-1842), sångare och sångpedagog, Jenny Linds första sånglärare.

      Runt miniatyrporträtt. Gouache. Osignerad. 8 x 7 cm. Gammal påskrift a tergo: "Hofsångaren C. M. Crælius / född d. 1773. / död d. 1842". Färgen längs kanterna ngt nött och påverkad av fukt.. Carl Magnus Craelius föddes på Kosta i Småland och var son till direktören vid glasbruket, hovkamreraren Frans Kristian Craelius. Carl Magnus studerade i Uppsala och försökte sig först på en karriär som ämbetsman vid Storamiralsämbetet och Kammarrevisionen. Han ledsnade dock snabbt på det administrativa rutinarbetet och skall ha varit frånvarande mest hela tiden. När han till slut varnades för försumlighet bestämde han sig för att satsa helhjärtat på musiken istället.<p>Craelius skall ha haft en härlig tenorstämma och var sångare vid Operan 1795-1806. Han tolkade sällan dramatiska roller, men var framgångsrik som konsertsångare med koloraturarior ur italienska operor. Bland annat gjorde han succé med konserter i Leipzig och Berlin under sina utrikes resor 1802-1809. Han var utsänd med stipendium från Operakassan till Tyskland och Italien, dels för sin egen utbildning, dels för att skaffa italienska förmågor till operan. Det senare gjorde han också, men när de engagerade sångarna kom till Stockholm, däribland kastratsångaren Sebastiani, kunde de inte göra sig gällande eftersom operan indrogs 1806-1809 under den svenska kulturens så kallade »järnår» i början av 1800-talet.<p>Efter hemkomsten övergick Craelius alltmer till att undervisa i sång, och det var på det området han fick sin största betydelse. Han hade bland andra Jenny Lind - nio år gammal - som elev. Hon menade senare att han var den förste, som gav henne rådet att bli operasångerska. Under sin makalösa karriär fortsatte hon att brevväxla med paret Craelius i Stockholm.<p>Craelius översatte även flera operalibretti och gav ut några solosånger, Quattro pezzetti di canto, omkring 1825. Han invaldes som ledamot av Kungliga Musikaliska Akademien 1822. Hans första hustru, Johanna Fredrika Fredrisen, var dotter till hertig Fredrik Adolf och skådespelerskan Jeanette Fredrique Löf. Hans andra hustru Caterina Silvia Gertrude Calderari var italienska, och med henne fick han fyra barn.<p>Detta mycket fina porträtt var inte känt för redaktionen av Svenskt biografiskt lexikon, men hade utan tvekan blivit en bättre illustration till artikeln om Craelius än den enkla teckning av Röhl som användes.

        SOME ADDITIONAL OBSERVATIONS ON THE METHOD OF PRESERVING SEEDS FROM FOREIGN PARTS, FOR THE BENEFIT OF OUR AMERICAN COLONIES. WITH AN ACCOUNT OF THE GARDEN AT ST. VINCENT, UNDER THE CARE OF GEORGE YOUNG

      London: W. Bowyer and J. Nichols, 1773.. 15pp. Quarto. Three-quarter calf in antique style, contemporary marbled boards. Slight toning, a near fine copy. John Ellis (1710-1776) was one of the most diligent "seed- men" at work during the Second Great Age of Exploration, overseeing the collecting of seeds and young plants from all parts of the world and importing them to Europe. In this,one of his rarest works, he discusses methods for preserving seeds gathered in North America, and shipping plants from the East Indies to the Caribbean, where he was convinced the monoculture of sugar cane could be supplanted by other tropical products. To demonstrate this, he gives a brief account of some of the tropical products being grown at George Young&#39;s new botanical garden on the island of St. Vincent, in the Grenadines, where East Indian spices such as nutmeg and coriander were being grown next to tea, almonds, and olives. The St. Vincent Botanical Garden, which survives today, was founded in 1765, and this is the earliest description of it. Ellis was an agent for West Florida and Dominica, and corresponded widely with other naturalists of his day. Linnaeus proclaimed him "the main support of natural history in England." Of great rarity; only a handful of copies in ESTC, and no copies in auction records. ESTC T49239. TAXANOMIC LITERATURE II 32746.

        Trial of Lieutenant Joel Abbot by the General Naval Court Martial, Holden on Board the U.S. Ship Independence, at the Navy Yard, Charlestown, Massachusetts, on Allegations Made Against Him by Capt. David Porter, Navy Commissioner?

      8vo, old pebbled cloth with leather corners, spine lettered in gilt with modern morocco, 164, 72, [1] pp. Corners scuffed, some light foxing, removed library plate, top hinge starting, but still firm, pencil note on title, old number on back of title; else very good. In this significant American legal case, Lt. Joel Abbot, stationed at the Charlestown Navy Yard, accused Capt. Isaac Hull (1773-1843), who commanded the U.S.S. Constitution during the War of 1812, of fraud against the U.S. government. Captain David Porter (1780-1843) investigated the charges, realized that Hull was innocent, and in April 1822 turned around and charged Abbot with libel. Specifically, he was accused of "attempting to take from his superior officer, Capt. Isaac Hull, his good name." Abbot was found guilty and removed from service for two years, and then resumed a somewhat successful naval career, rising to the rank of captain. This work contains a good deal of legal correspondence and questioning. Interestingly, in coverage of Capt. Porter and Capt. Hull in the ANB there does not appear to be any mention of this case in their write-ups. Sabin 96807. ANB.

An exemplary, wide-margined example in a handsome binding, occasional foxing, a few sporadic stains, else fresh and bright, the charts, maps and plates in fine impressions, properly folded and free of tears. Hill 1328. Sabin 6870. Palau 222526. & Second Edition, translated from the French and reissued from the first English edition sheets of 1771 with new title page (Sabin). Both English issues are considered superior to the French octavo editions of 1769 (Berlin) and 1770 (Paris), and include new charts and plans. After the Treaty of Paris was signed in 1763 ending the Seven Years&#39; War (French and Indian War), Louis Antoine de Bougainville set sail from the port of Saint Malo in northwestern France on the English Channel with a crew of a hundred and fifty people, one of whom, the Benedictine naturalist Antoine-Joseph Pernety, was on board to chronicle the expedition. Bougainville&#39;s intent was to establish a colony on the Falklands for the French Canadians (the "Arcadians") who had been expelled from Canada during the French and Indian War and to secure a strategic position for France near the Straits of Magellan on the sea route to the Pacific. (Because his ships and crew originated from St. Malo, Bougainville named the islands the Malouines and planted the French flag at Fort St. Louis on the eastern island in 1764.) At the time, the islands were almost unknown, and Bougainville must have been unaware that the Englishman John Strong had made the first landing in 1690, naming Falkland Sound in honor of Anthony Cary, 5th Viscount of Falkland, Treasurer of the British Navy. Pernety also described a subsequent expedition, in 1765, during which the French encountered a British squadron under John Byron, who reasserted possession of the Falklands on behalf of Britain, nearly sparking the outbreak of war between Great Britain and Spain, which claimed the archipelago as part of Spanish Patagonia. And so began the Falklands controversy. By the time Pernety&#146;s account was first published in 1769, Bougainville had dismantled the French colony during his circumnavigation of 1766-1769 in response to Spanish protests. N. B.

        [Three voyages:] An Account of the Voyages &#133; for Making Discoveries in the Southern Hemisphere&#133;;

      London: W. Strahan; and T. Cadell; & G. Nicol and T. Cadell, , 1773-85. A Voyage towards the South Pole, and Round the World &#133;; A Voyage to the Pacific Ocean &#133; 9 volumes, 8 quarto text volumes (397 × 230 mm), and folio atlas (565 × 400 mm) of plates and maps to accompany the third voyage. Text volumes in early nineteenth-century tree calf, dark tan and bottle green labels to the spine, spine gilt in compartments, oval decorative device within foliate corner-pieces, gilt panelling to the boards, yellow edge-stain; atlas volume in matching half calf on marbled boards. All volumes with the elaborate gilt lighthouse device of the Northern Light Board at the heads of the spines. First voyage with 52 plates, maps and charts, many folding and backed with linen; second with engraved portrait frontispiece by Basire after Hodges and 63 plates, charts and maps, some folding, similarly backed, folding letterpress table at p. 364; third with 87 engraved plates, charts and maps, some folding, letterpress table in vol. II, bound without the supplementary "Death of Cook" plate. A little rubbed, particularly at the spines, skilfully restored and remaining attractive, some foxing and browning to the plates as usual, but a handsome set. Second, fourth, and second editions respectively. A complete set of the official accounts of Captain Cook&#39;s three voyages around the world. "Cook did more to clarify the geographical knowledge of the southern hemisphere than all his predecessors had done together. He was the first really scientific navigator and his voyages made great contributions to many fields of knowledge" (Hill). His contributions to the advancement of knowledge were widely recognised in his own time. During his third voyage, when Britain and America were at war, Benjamin Franklin, who had met Cook in London and was then serving as the Colonies&#39; representative at the court in Paris, wrote a general laissez passer for the expedition, requesting that the American and French fleets leave them unmolested, declaring that "The increase of geographical knowledge facilitates the communication between distant nations in the exchange of useful products and manufactures and the extension of arts whereby the common enjoyments of human life are multiply&#39;d and augmented, and science of other kinds encreas&#39;d to the benefit of mankind in general." Cook&#39;s many discoveries resulted in British claims in Alaska, British Columbia, Oregon, Australia, New Zealand and Hawaii, the last of which he regarded as his most valuable discovery but where he met his death. "He also suggested the existence of Antarctic land in the southern ice ring, a fact which was not proved until the explorations of the nineteenth century" (PMM).

        An Abridgment of Burn&#39;s Justice of the Peace and Parish Officer

      1773. Burn, Richard [1709-1785]. Greenleaf, Joseph [1720-1810], Editor. An Abridgment of Burn&#39;s Justice of the Peace and Parish Officer. To Which is Added, An Appendix, Containing Some General Rules and Directions Necessary to be Known and Observed by All Justices of the Peace. Boston: Printed For, And Sold By, Joseph Greenleaf, 1773. [viii], 386, [2] pp. Includes two-page publisher advertisement. Quarto (8-1/2" x 7"). Contemporary sheep, rebacked retaining original spine with raised bands and lettering piece, hinges mended, spine ends restored. Moderate rubbing and minor scuffing to boards, some offsetting to margins of endleaves, very light browning to text. Early owner signature (J. Rowe/ Sept 16. 1776) to title page, interior otherwise clean. A handsome copy. * Only American edition and the only abridgement of a legal treatise printed in America before the Revolution. Richard Burn was an attorney and antiquarian who edited the ninth, tenth, and eleventh editions of Blackstone&#39;s Commentaries. His Justice of the Peace, and Parish Officer (1755) was perhaps his most important work. Holdsworth considered it to be one of the best treatments of the subject, an opinion shared by Burn&#39;s contemporaries, both in England and in the colonies. The "best proof that his book...was accepted as the leading text-book on that topic is the number of editions through which it passed.... It deserved its success. Burn carefully abridged the statutes, and stated the manner in which their clauses had been interpreted by the courts. His treatment of the criminal law was based upon a thorough study of the works of Coke, Hale, and Hawkins." Greenleaf explains the nature of his abridgement in the preface: "The London edition takes in the whole practice of England and Scotland, this renders it both bulky and dear. The circle of a justices business in those places is vastly extensive, and is founded chiefly on acts of the British parliament, which can never have any relation to this colony" [i]. Greenleaf also added an appendix of forms and general rules and directions for American courts. Holdsworth, A History of English Law XII:332-333. Cohen, Bibliography of Early American Law 8325.

        THE PLACID MAN: OR, MEMOIRS OF SIR CHARLES BEVILLE

      London, J. Dodsley, 1773.. 2 volumes, complete set, second edition, with additions, 1773. 12mo, approximately 175 x 100 mm, 6¾ x 4 inches, woodcut tailpieces, pages xii, 223, (1); viii, 247, (1), bound in full contemporary calf, gilt rules to spines, gilt volume numbers and gilt lettered title labels, gilt edges to covers. Spines darkened, hinges starting to crack at top and bottom, covers holding firmly, corners just slightly rubbed, 3 slight scrapes to lower cover of Volume II, armorial bookplate inside upper covers, small closed tear to edge of front endpaper in Volume II, a couple of small pale spots to 1 margin, otherwise contents clean, bindings tight and firm. A good set of a rare early novel. The Rev. Charles Jenner (bap. 1736, d. 1774), educated at Cambridge was known as a poet and writer. He won the Seatonian prize at Cambridge for poems on sacred subjects in 1767 and 1768, but also turned his attention to prose narrative at about this time with Letters from Altamont (1767) and Letters from Lothario (1769). The Placid Man, first published in 1770, is his only full length novel "and in this he departed from the epistolary technique and followed Henry Fielding, to whom he clearly states his allegiance early on in the proceedings, in telling his story from the viewpoint of an omniscient narrator who not only recounts the incidents but also takes time to air his views on a variety of related subjects, especially in the introductory chapter to each book of the novel... (It) takes much from the conventions of contemporary sentimental fiction, in both form and content. Interpolated narratives turn up at irregular intervals, causing one contemporary critic to complain that &#145;the digressions are too numerous&#146;, although he conceded that &#145;many of them are instructive and entertaining&#146; (ODNB).

        Die neusten Offenbarungen Gottes in Briefen und Erzählungen. Zweyter Theil. [Von Carl Friedrich Bahrdt].,

      Riga: bey Johann Friedrich Hartknoch 1773 - (4), 376 Seiten. Carl [Karl] Friedrich Bahrdt (1741-1792) war ein deutscher evangelischer Theologe und Schriftsteller im Zeitalter der Aufklärung. "Er wirkte nach philosophischen, theologischen und philologischen Studien in Leipzig, zunächst in orthodoxem Sinne als Repetent seines Vaters, seit 1761 als Privatdozent und seit 1766 als außerordentlicher Professor der geistlichen Philologie, daneben als beliebter Kanzelredner an der Peterskirche und als biblischexegetischer Schriftsteller. Wegen seines liederlichen Lebenswandels und als Anhänger der biblizistisch-neologischen Richtung konnte er sich in Leipzig, später in Erfurt und Gießen nicht halten. [.] Seit 1779 hielt er in Halle stark besuchte philologische und philosophische Vorlesungen und produzierte, nunmehr den Offenbarungsglauben aufgebend und das Christentum ganz naturalistisch ausdeutend, zahllose Schriften theologisch-moralischer Art, Lehrbücher, Übersetzungen aus dem Lateinischen, aber auch - größtenteils anonym - oft frivole belletristische Werke, freche Satiren, Streitschriften u. a. Er griff damit, zuletzt unter dem Einfluß der französischen Revolution - für diese Entwicklung durchaus typisch - als radikaler Demokrat auch auf das politische und soziale Gebiet über. [.]" (ADB, S. 772-774) - Einband leicht berieben und etwas angestaubt. Leder auf Vordeckel stärker beschabt mit kleiner Fehlstelle. Ecken leicht bestoßen.
