        The Gentleman's Magazine: and Historical Chronicle. For the Year MDCCLXXIV [1774] [through] MDCCLXXXIII [1783] [Ten Volumes in Eleven]

      London: Printed at St. John's Gate for D. Henry, 1774-1783. Full modern brown calf, five raised bands, red morocco spine labels, gilt titles and rules, in period style. Beautifully bound, with new endpapers, some leaves closely trimmed with occasional but minimal grazing of a few letters, numerals added to volume titles, occasional institutional ownership stamps mostly to versos of volume titles, a few small chips and tears on leaves, one plate worn through the neat line, one later plan unrelated to America in facsimile, a few with tears at the folds, but overall a magnificent set spanning the American Revolutionary War from start to finish. 8vo. Illus. with 164 engraved portraits, figures, maps, and plans (75 folding, 1 facsimile) plus numerous in text drawings. Descriptions of every major event of the rebellion, every major battle of the ensuing war, every important letter, every major speech in Parliament, every major document including the Declaration of Independence. "Cave began the Gentleman's Magazine in January 1731, thus giving birth to one of the major publishing forms of the modern era, the magazine. It began modestly as a digest of London newspapers and periodicals for country customers (an orientation signaled in Cave's editorial pseudonym, Sylvanus Urban), but it went on to prosper and survive until 1922." (ODNB). Still using the name Silvanus Urban, Henry David, who succeeded as editor on Cave's death in 1754, and who was a first cousin of Patrick Henry of Virginia and a friend of Benjamin Franklin, added a special section starting in August 1774, entitled "Proceedings of the American Colonists, since the Passing of the Boston Port-Bill" which provided substantial coverage of the build-up and progress of the American Revolution with items previously published in the official government paper, letters from British officials in America, and reports from American newspapers and other sources, all with remarkable impartiality. Its influence on periodicals, newspapers, and magazines in general, and the British public's understanding of the American war in particular, cannot be overestimated. Beyond the American Revolution, the magazine reported extensively during these years on other issues and news concerning the British public, both domestically and internationally, from explorations, battles, public works, science, literature, philosophy, all providing a detailed picture of Great Britain and her people during this great upheaval. Each volume is difficult to find, and Revolutionary sets are rarely come by.

Resolves from the Provincial Meeting of Deputies 3. Resolutions of the Virginia Revolutionary Convention 4.

        Autograph letter signed

      Paris, 1774. <p>Pasumot, François (1733-1804). Autograph letter signed, in French, to an unidentified correspondent. Paris, January 20, 1774. 4pp. 231 x 177 mm. Minor foxing, one or two tiny marginal tears, but fine otherwise. </p><p>A long, densely written (ca. 1500 words) letter from French cartographic engineer and antiquarian François Pasumot, best known today as the co-creator, with Nicolas Desmarest (1725-1815), of the landmark geological "Map of a part of Auvergne, representing the lava flows, where basalt is found in prismatic and round forms . . . ," published as part of Desmarest&#39;s Mémoire sur l&#39;origine et la nature du basalt en grandes colonnes polygones (Mémoires de l&#39;Académie royale des sciences 1771 [1774]: 705-775). The Pasumot-Desmarest map "set a new standard for precise graphic representation of the positions of distinct kinds of rock, and played a role in emerging conceptions about geomorphological change and about the distribution of volcanic rocks" (Taylor, p. 129).</p><p>Pasumot devoted much of his time to the study of archeology and ancient geography, which he became interested in after the discovery of several ancient monuments in the Auxerre region of Burgundy, where he was then teaching. He was the author of numerous works on antiquarian subjects, the most important being Recueil de mémoires géographiques sur quelques antiquités de la Gaule (1765), in which he determined the topography of the ancient towns of Chora, Bandritum and Gergovia as well as the location of several sections of Roman road. The present letter is representative of Pasumot&#39;s activities in this area: In it, Pasumot obliges his correspondent with several long extracts, taking up nearly two pages of the letter, from his then-unpublished "Eloge" to fellow antiquarian the Comte de Caylus (1692-1765), whose seven-volume Recueil d&#39;antiquités égyptiennes, étruscanes, greques et romaines (1752-55) helped lay the groundwork for the development of modern methods of archeology and art history. Pasumot&#39;s letter ends with an "Extrait du testament de feu M. le Comte de Caylus: à Paris, le 15 juillet 1765" (Extract from the will of the late M. le Comte de Caylus, Paris, July 15, 1765), and a transcript of the inscription on Caylus&#39;s tomb, taken from the July 1769 number of the Journal des Scavants. Pasumot&#39;s "Eloge" to the Comte de Caylus, completed in 1766, remained in manuscript until after Pasumot&#39;s death, when it was included in the posthumous Dissertations et mémoires sur différens sujets d&#39;antiquité et d&#39;histoire (1810-13) edited by Grivaud de la Vincelle. Taylor, "New light on geological mapping in Auvernge during the eighteenth century: The Pasumot-Desmarest collaborabion," Revue d&#39;histoire des sciences 47 (1994): 129-136.

        Anleitung zu der Pflanzenkenntniss und derselben nützlichsten Anwendung. Mit hundert illuminirten Tafeln.

      Zürich, Verlag des Waysenhauses, 1774. Folio (366 x 230mm). pp. 129, (1, blank), 1 leaf of 'Entwurf der Tafeln', title with engraved vignette, 2 handcoloured engraved plates of floral detail and 101 fine handcoloured woodcuts on 100 leaves of flowering plants. Contemporary boards. First and only edition, documenting a remarkable survival. The 101 woodcuts are printed from the original blocks of Fuchs 'De Stirpium historia', 1542, the most celebrated herbal ever published. "The only apparent difference is the removal of the (printed) plant-names from the old plates and the printing of new ones at the bottom. It is interesting to compare the handcoloring in the eighteenth-century volume with that in its great sixteenth-century predecessor" (Hunt). In the preface Schinz explains how he discovered the original woodblocks of Fuchs and how they were coloured in the Zurich orphanage. The large woodcuts are beautifully hand-coloured. Christoph Salomon Schinz (1764-1847) was a Swiss physician and botanist at Zürich.//Hunt 640; Nissen BBI, 1761.
