        1773 MAP of THE SHROPSHIRE EARTHQUAKE

      On the 27th of May, 1773, a remarkable land-slip occurred at a place called the Birches located on the hillside above the River Severn between Buildwas and Coalbrookdale, not far from the site of the present day Ironbridge power Station, when more than 18 acres of land were, by a sudden disruption, carried forward with such impetuous velocity as to stop the current of the Severn,and take possession of its ancient bed. After days of heavy rain with the river in heavy flood, the hillside above slipped into the valley below, completely blocking the river for a time, there are recorded reports of many vessels having fallen on their sides in the drained river bed downstream being lost when the river finally found a new course past the blockage. Great Chasms 30 feet deep appeared in the hillside above with pillars of earth left standing within the chasms, the ground below having moved a considerable distance. There were a number of written accounts of this phenomena including one by the famous Methodist minister The Rev. John Fletcher of Madeley, and T Addenbrooke whose account appeared in the Annual register for that year . This is a Rare original copy of the Plan of the Landslip, as surveyed and drawn by George Young in 1773, which details the change of the course of the river Severn and the Landslip and its affects above, here called an Earthquake, the map measures 27 inches by 20 inches approx., and is mounted in an old wood frame with slatted back which measures 34.5 inches by 26.5 inches, the map is generally darkened with a small area of loss to the top left corner, and a few small edge tears with no loss, mild staining to left hand border, small red mark above the explanatory text in lower left corner else in good general condition, due to the weight and fragility of the frame, It would not be safe to post the map in the frame so would prefer collection in person if possible,

        The Young Geographer and Astronomer's best Companion.

      London: printed for R. Baldwin,, 1773. Containing, I. The Elements of Modern Geography, in which, besides many other useful Articles, the Latitude and Longitude of a great Variety of Places are given from the latest Observations. II. A comprehensive System of Ancient Geography, both sacred and profane, particularly adapted to the Illustration of the Classic Authors, and of the Historical Parts of the Bible. III. The Description and Use of the Celestial and Terrestrial Globes, in which particular Attention has been given to the regular Disposition, and most convenient Solution of a numerous Collection of Problems, which are succeeded by several ingenious and entertaining Paradoxes for the Exercise of the Learner. - Also the Principles of Dialling, as it is performed and illustrated by the Globes;-And the Construction, and Use of the different Kinds of Maps. IV. The Elements of Astronomy, in which, besides a large Account of the Solar System, and of the various Motions, Revolutions, &c. of the Planet and Comets, are given the Theory of the Four Seasons, the Harvest-Moons, Eclipses, Tides, and several other Phaenomena too numerous to be here mentioned. To this Part is added a copious Appendix, containing the Elements of Chronology, a Science very intimately connected with that of Astronomy. The Whole is illustrated with The Necessary Engravings. And, though principally intended for The Use Of Schools, May serve as a convenient Memorandum-Book for those Gentlemen and Ladies who have been already instructed in the Sciences above-mentioned. Duodecimo (175 x 106 mm). Contemporary tree calf, neatly rebacked to style, red morocco label. Folding engraved world map as frontispiece, 12 engraved plates, of which 3 are folding; with integral final advert leaf. Contemporary ownership inscription ("Bravier") at head of title. Corners worn, small inkspot at head of preface, a few marks elsewhere, but a very good copy. First edition of this juvenile text on geography and astronomy. Jones, described on the title as "Teacher of the Classics and Geography, at Bromley, in Kent", is known principally by this work. He also wrote A New and Universal Geographical Grammar: or, a Complete System of Geography (1772), a version explicitly for adults. The book is dedicated to John Hawkesworth, who was governor of a girls' boarding-school housed in Thornhill Mansion, Bromley, before he established himself as a literary figure of some note; Jones was presumably a master at Hawkesworth's school. This title, published the same year as Hawkesworth's best-selling account of Cook's first voyage, is uncommon: ESTC gives three locations in the British Isles (BL, Nottingham University Library, and the Bodleian) and three in North America (two at Harvard, the other Toronto Public Libraries).

In 1768 John Wilkes [1727-1797], publisher of the controversial paper the North Briton, was elected to Parliament by Middlesex County. However, he was imprisoned for seditious libel and expelled.

        No 13. [The head of a New Zealander.]

      1773 - London: Strahan and Cadell, 1773. 185 x 225mm. A very fine example. An illustration of the intricately-tattooed face of a Maori, published in Hawkesworth's 'An account of the voyages undertaken by the order of His present Majesty for making discoveries in the Southern Hemisphere.' which included the Official Account of Captain Cook's First Voyage. It shows the Maori head-and-shoulders, with a comb in his hair, a stone ear ornament and a tooth necklace. Although tattooing was already known, it was Cook's voyage that introduced the Samoan word 'Tatau' to England, with Sir Joseph Banks describing the procedure in his journals. The plate only has a plate number, so the title, as above, comes from the index.

Très bel exemplaire. Edition originale rare. "Du théatre...", composé au moment où les pièces de l'auteur n'avaient pas encore de succès; c'est une attaque contre l'ancien théâtre et principalement contre Racine, une tentative de poétique nouvelle, tendant à ouvrir une voie nouvelle, à rejeter les fables et les règles anciennes, à produire sur la scène la société vivante, le peuple, la vie ordinaire. Présentées sous une forme violente et bizarre, ces idées soulevèrent toute la critique contre leur auteur. wiki.

        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

      W. Strahan & T. Cadell, London 1773 - Three volumes, quarto, with 52 engraved charts and plates (most folding); in contemporary tree calf. First edition of the official account of Cook's great first voyage into the Pacific during the course of which he discovered and charted the entire east coast of Australia, naming it New South Wales. This narrative was edited from Cook's journals by the professional writer Hawkesworth. Cook's voyage occupies volumes two and three; the first volume contains the official accounts of the voyages of Byron, Wallis and Carteret, and Hawkesworth's compendium thus contains the cream of eighteenth-century English exploration.As the official narrative of the Endeavour voyage this publication has always enjoyed considerable status, though it had its critics, chiefly because of Hawkesworth's cavalier approach to the editing job: Cook himself hated the use of the first person singular in the narrative. Horace Walpole noted waspishly in a letter (to Dr Mason: Yale edition of the Letters, vol. 28 p. 96.) that 'I have almost waded through Dr Hawkesworth's three volumes of the voyages in the South Seas. The entertaining matters would not fill half a volume; and at best it is but an account of the fishermen on the coasts of 40 islands?'.This is a really handsome copy of the first edition, and unlike many examples it is complete with the leaf of " A Description of the Cuts" and the Chart of the Straits of Magellan. These are frequently lacking from copies of the first edition, probably because they were the last components of the book to be printed. Some browning and offsetting, the plate 'Strait of Magellan' torn and laid down on linen; but a good copy, spines renewed. [Attributes: First Edition]

        The Question Concerning Literary Property, Determined by the Court of King's Bench . . . In the Cause between Andrew Millar and Robert Taylor

      London: Printed for W. Strahan and M. Woodfall for B. Tovey, 1773, 1773. First edition. Rothschild 561; ESTC T88999. Title a little browned; fine, large copy.. Quarto, modern brown cloth, brown calf label, gilt lettering. One of the most important copyright decisions of the 18th century English jurisprudence: In 1767 bookseller Andrew Millar brought suit against Robert Taylor for Taylor's printing of James Thomson's The Seasons, the famous poem which Millar had purchased from the poet in 1729, and to which in his opinion he still owned exclusive rights. The arguments before the court explored in depth the questions of common-law copyright, the Statute of Anne, "booksellers' monopoly," and the rights of authors to their literary property. The court decided, three to one, in Millar's favor, who died just as the trial was beginning. Sir James Burrow (1701-1782) was a legendary court reporter, and his account of Millar vs. Taylor is considered a "lucid and valuable" narrative.

        She Stoops to Conquer: Or, the Mistakes of a Night. A Comedy as it is Acted at the Theatre-Royal in Covent-Garden

      London: Printed for F. Newbery, 1773, 1773. First edition, a mixed issue as always, but this copy bears several first state points. Rothschild 1037; NCBEL II, 1199; Todd, Studies in Bibliography, volume 11. Hinges skillfully repaired; fine copy, enclosed in cloth slipcase.. 8vo, 20th century green morocco by Riviere, gilt rules, inner dentelles, decorations and lettering, a.e.g. A major Georgian play about the comic events surrounding an arranged marriage. She Stoops to Conquer opened at Covent Garden March 15, 1773 and was an instant success. The printed version, dedicated to Samuel Johnson, appeared several days later to an equally successful reception. It was produced at great haste simultaneously by two printers (one was responsible for signatures A-K, the other L-P). Consequently there are several states of the first edition "and no copies appear entirely in the first state" - Todd. This one contains the following first issue points: it does not have a half-title and the epilogue is in the preliminary gathering; the price is on the title-page, a second issue point, which is found in both first and second states.

      London: printed for R. Baldwin, 1773 - Duodecimo (175 x 106 mm). Contemporary tree calf, neatly rebacked to style, red morocco label. Contemporary ownership inscription ("Bravier") at head of title. Corners worn, small inkspot at head of preface, a few marks elsewhere, but a very good copy. Folding engraved world map as frontispiece, 12 engraved plates, of which 3 are folding; with integral final advert leaf. First edition of this juvenile text on geography and astronomy. Jones, described on the title as "Teacher of the Classics and Geography, at Bromley, in Kent", is known principally by this work. He also wrote A New and Universal Geographical Grammar: or, a Complete System of Geography (1772), a version explicitly for adults. The book is dedicated to John Hawkesworth, who was governor of a girls' boarding-school housed in Thornhill Mansion, Bromley, before he established himself as a literary figure of some note; Jones was presumably a master at Hawkesworth's school. This title, published the same year as Hawkesworth's best-selling account of Cook's first voyage, is uncommon: ESTC gives three locations in the British Isles (BL, Nottingham University Library, and the Bodleian) and three in North America (two at Harvard, the other Toronto Public Libraries).

      1773. Large 4to. XII, 506 pp. With 2 folding maps and 13 plates. Modern red calf retaining original giltstamped spine label. First edition. - The British surgeon Edward Ives travelled to East India on an Admiral's ship in 1754. After working at a local hospital for a while, he returned to England in 1758. His return route through the Middle East was the same as that chosen, but a few years later, by Carsten Niebuhr: from Basra via Hille, Baghdad, Mosul, Diarbekr, Biredjik, and Haleb to Latakia. He met with Mubarak bin Sabah, the Sheikh of "Grane" (Kuwait): "In connection with Kuwait, Ives's text is especially important for the insight it gives into the economy of caravan traffic and Kuwait's place in it. Many sources present Kuwait as a port, oriented towards the sea. Ives shows another side of Kuwait. We see that the Shaikhs of Kuwait are quite mobile individuals, travelling to Syria with their camels. The Shaikh is landbound, occupied with caravans [...] The seaward side of Kuwait's economy was [...] controlled by the Al-Khalifa family" (Slot, 135). In addition, Ives was the first author to provide a detailed description of the ruins of Ktesiphon, previously visited by Pietro della Valle (cf. Henze). "Ives' presence at many of the transactions which he describes and his personal intimacy with Watson give his historical narrative an unusual importance, and his account of the manners and customs of the countries he visited are those of an enlightened and acute observer [...] The appendix contains an 'Account of the Diseases prevalent in Adml. Watson's squadron, a description of most of the Trees, Shrubs, and Plants of India, with their medicinal virtues'" (Cox). - Insignificant browning; a good copy. Howgego I, P117. Wilson 107. Diba 115.

Martin was largely self-taught, for many years he was the only pupil at the Thetford Free School and left to his own devices, where he took an early interest in antiquities. When Peter Le Neve visited Thetford in 1710, he sought a guide to the many antiquities of the town, he was told that no-one knew more than thirteen-year old Master Martin and here began a close friendship which was to have a far-reaching affect on the direction of Norfolk historiography for the remainder of the century. In 1723 Martin left Thetford and settled in Palgrave, Suffolk. When Peter Le Neve died in 1729, Martin, having been appointed one of the executors, set about helping Le Neve's young widow in sorting the enormous library that had been assemble by her husband. The collection was particularly strong in Norfolk and Suffolk material, Richard Gough describing the Norfolk portion as "the greatest fund of antiquities for his native county that ever was collected for any single one in the kingdom". It was during this time that their relationship grew and they eventually married in January 1732, soon afterwards the couple moved with the collection to Martin's home in Palgrave. His continuing obsession with collecting printed books, manuscripts historical antiquities of all kinds, eventually took their toll on his fortune. By 1769 his financial embarrassments obliged him to dispose of his coin collections and many of his books, enriched with manuscript notes, to Thomas Payne. On his death in 1771, John Worth, a local chemist from Diss, purchased the remaining library with all other collections for 660 pounds, a fraction of their true value. The printed books were immediately sold to Booth & Berry of Norwich for £330; they in turn then produced this fixed price catalogue, which marked up to more than £2,000. The catalogue covers all the learned subjects, with an emphasis on British history. It also contains a substantial numbers of books in French, Spanish, Italian, Latin, Greek, Saxon, Arabic and Hebrew. There is section described as "Black letter books" which includes British and European incunabula, with the works of de Worde and Pynson's presses well represented. Thomas Martin had supplied information from these books for both Joseph Ames and William Herbert for respective their editions of the 'Typographical Antiquities'.

Petit in-12, plein veau porphyre de l'époque, dos lisse orné de cloisons fleuronnés et cloisonnés, pièce de titre de maroquin vert, triple filet doré en encadrement des plats, chasses et coupes filetées, tranches dorées, 177 p., complet de son frontispice et des 19 figures libres imprimées sur papier fort. Rarissime édition à l'adresse de Glasgow, dont seuls 2 exemplaires sont recensés. Elle est ici illustrée de 20 planches imprimées sur papier fort, dont le frontispice. Les 2 exemplaires recensés ne comportent que 15 planches. "Ouvrage majeur de la littérature, le seul qui trouva grâce aux yeux de Sade lui-même. Plutôt sévère pour la production érotique de son temps, Sade lui rend hommage en ces termes (in l'Histoire de Juliette'): "Le seul ouvrage qui ait montré le but (.); l'unique qui ait lié la luxure et l'impiété, et qui donnera enfin l'idée d'un livre immoral". Erotique et philosophique à la fois, ce roman s’élève comme une "protestation contre l’intégrisme religieux et les préjugés sociaux". De même donne-t-il voix aux femmes d’une façon jusque-là inédite. "Place d’honneur doit être faite dans l’histoire de l’autodétermination de la femme à ‘Thérèse philosophe’: l’ouvrage donne à lire une sensualité féminine qui n’est pas censée se subordonner aux plaisirs et désirs de l’homme. En refusant le rôle d’épouse respectable et de mère de famille, Thérèse ouvre une brèche dans le conformisme social et le rôle qu’il assigne à la femme" (Robert Darnton)" (La Musardine, 1998).

Pasteur français de Leipzig en Allemagne, Jean Dumas réfute les arguments traditionnels en faveur du suicide et examine la défense qui en est faite dans la littérature et la philosophie de l'époque, en particulier par Rousseau, Montesquieu et d'Holbach. "Depuis quelques temps le suicide devient trop commun dans toutes les parties du monde chrétien, pour ne devoir pas fixer l'attention des Amis de la Société et des Hommes". En 1769 à Paris, 147 personnes se seraient donné volontairement la mort. Malgré des rousseurs, bon exemplaire
