        A Voyage Round The World, In the Years MDCCCL, I, II, III, IV, By GEORGE ANSON, Esq; Afterwords Lord Anson, Commander in Chief of a Squadron of His Majesty's Ships, sent upon an Expedition to the South-Seas. Compiled from his Papers and Materials, by Richard Walter. Chaplain of His Majesty's Ship the Centurion, in that Expedition. Illustrated with Forty-two Copper-Plates. The Fifteenth Edition. [Compiled by Richard Walter].

      London. Printed for W. Bowyer and J. Nichols, . 1776. - thick 4to, tall copy, 28.2cm, xx,417,[2]p., with 42 copper-engraved large folding plates, (mainly plate illustrations inc. (maps & charts), in contemporary full tree calf, full gilt spine panels, border and centre devices, crushed crimson morocco label gilt, gilt borders on the boards, marbled endpapers, the boards are slightly bowed toward the front edge, upper hinge started along the top for about 3" but the hinge is sound, a very good to fine copy attractively bound in antique tree calf binding. (cgc) This is the official account of Anson's voyage. England, at war with Spain in 1739, equipped eight ships under the command of George Anson to harass the Spaniards on the western coast of South America, for the purpose of cutting off Spanish supplies of wealth from the Pacific area. The Spanish fleet sent out to oppose the British ran into storms; provisions ran out and many ships were wrecked. Anson continued taking prizes off the Pacific coast during 1741-42, and in June, 1743, captured the Manila galleon and its treasure of œ400,000 sterling. According to the DNB (v. 16), "Lord Anson, who was a friend and patron of [Benjamin] Robins, after returning from the voyage around the world in the Centurion, appears to have entrusted to Robins, for revision, the account of the voyage which had been compiled from the journals by his chaplain, Richard Walter. There has been considerable dispute as to whether Robins or Walter wrote the book. . . ." it is probable that Robins revised and edited the work, wrote an introduction, and added dissertations. He was also entrusted with the second volume, containing the nautical observations. He took the manuscript with him to India, and when he died in that country, it could not be found (cf. DNB). This compilation has long occupied a distinguished position as a masterpiece of descriptive travel. Anson's voyage appears to have been the most popular book of maritime adventure of the eighteenth century. The official account was preceded by a number of unauthorized accounts. Several of these are in the Hill Collection: among the various accounts of the wreck of one of Anson's ships, the Wager, see, e.g., John Bulkeley, John Byron, Alexander Campbell, and Isaac Morris; narratives from officers aboard the Centurion are found under John Philips and Pascoe Thomas; and three unauthorized accounts were published under the title A Voyage to the South Seas. . . . The official account by Richard Walter also appears in the collection of English circumnavigators edited by David Laing Purves (q.v.), as well as in modern editions, among them the scholarly version edited by Glyndn Williams, 1974 (see below, under Richard Walter), and the adaptation by Leslie Anson Wilcox (q.v.), 1970. - Hill.

        DISCORSO ALL'ORECCHIO DI MONSIEUR LOUIS GOUDAR

      Londra [stated on title, more likely Firenze], 1776. 55, [1] pp. Uncut. The attribution to Casanova is mainly based on an index to this publication in his handwriting found at Dux by Rava (see Sirène edition IX p. 408/09). "Although not mentioned by Pollio there can be no doubt that C. collaborated with Antonio Piazza in the drafting of this pamphlet ... (Casanovas) translation of the `Iliad'... was dedicated to Lord Tilney, a common acquaintance of C. and Goudar. At the time Goudar was in Italy with his wife, Sara, a former Irish barmaid he had met in London, and was busy with the writing of pamphlets which he published under the name of his wife ... (In this pamphlets) Goudar had been critical of Italy and Venice ... C. had first met Goudar in Paris. His acquaintance with him had been renewed in London in 1763-1764 ... On page 21 (of the Discorso') we find: And, further, do you believe we do not know what your life was in that Metropolis (London)? A most beautiful house, the charming young girls that you frequented, two companions worthy of you, who spread the net to catch suckers and young fools... It was Goudar who served constantly as C's intermediary in the latter's famous affair with the Charpillon, the young prostitute who led him on and made perfect fool of him. It is to be suspected that Goudar had a hand-in this fleecing of C. Rives Childs p. 37..

      [1776] Unsigned pen & wash sketch. 23 x 31cm. 20th century frame, glazed.Clergyman, schoolmaster and writer on aesthetics, William Gilpin, 1724–1804 is best known for his works on the picturesque which he described as 'a term expressive of that peculiar kind of beauty, which is agreeable in a picture'. First published in 1789, 'Observations' forms part of a series which records Gilpin's reflections on the picturesque across British landscapes. It follows his journey made in 1776, equipped with notebook and sketching materials, exploring the landscape of the Scottish Highlands via northern England, Edinburgh and Glasgow. An etching of this original sketch, simplified slightly, is included opposite page 107 in volume two: 'Gretna Green was the last place we visited in Scotland; the great resort of such unfortunate nymphs, as differ with their parents, and guardians on the subject of marriage'.

Modern green calf over contemporary green morocco boards, boards gilt ruled, flat spines with red morocco labels with gilt lettering and gilt decorative ornaments. Fine example of the first edition of this remarkable work: the first significant Russian publication with plates coloured by hand, and the first survey of the peoples of Russia. With 95 plates in beautiful contemporary colour by Roth, the leading engraver in St. Petersburg in the 1770s. He also engraved fine firework displays, frontispieces and vignettes (such as those that appear in Catherine the Great's celebrated Nakaz). This copy is complete. The first three parts of the text are in French, while the fourth part, which was added after Roth's death four years later, was published only in German. All captions are printed in Russian, German and French. This copy contains a variation of pl. 73 depicting a naked 'Chukotskaya baba'. This important book is the first extensive survey of the peoples of Russia, as well as their customs and behaviour. It enjoyed long-lasting success and its fine plates were used as models for many Western (and often inferior) imitations. The work is divided into four parts: I. People of the Finnish tribe (25 plates); II. Tatar people (30 plates); III. Samoyed, Manchu and Eastern Siberian people (20 plates); and IV. Mongolian peoples, Russians and other peoples (mostly Cossacks) (20 plates). The German geographer and chemist Johann Gottlieb Georgi (1729-1803) made a career in Russia in the service of Catherine the Great. After completing his studies at St. Petersburg's Russian Academy of Sciences, Georgi accompanied the German zoologist and biologist Peter Simon Pallas on an expedition through Siberia, during which he took a particular interest in Lake Baikal and its surrounding area. The author of the Neue Deutsche Biographie claims, 'It is hard to overestimate Georgi's work. His records provide extensive and accurate ethnographical, economical, botanical and geographical descriptions of a large part of the Russian Empire.'

        Death, the last Enemy, destroyed by Christ. A Sermon, Preached, March 27, 1776, before The Honorable Continental Congress, on the Death of the Honorable Samuel Ward, Esq. One of the Delegates from the Colony of Rhode Island...

      Philadelphia: Joseph Crukshank, 1776. First edition. Pamphlet. Very Good. First printing. Scarce. OCLC locates only six examples in book format, one of which rests in the Library Of Congress. 28 pp. intact and complete but apparently disbound from a larger volume. Small chip top corner of p. 25/26 not affecting any text and a somewhat larger chip top corner of p.27/28 in the same area affecting one or two words. Eulogy delivered before the Continental Congress on the occasion of the passing from smallpox in Philadelphia of Samuel Ward of Rhode Island. In addition to serving in the First Continental Congress, Ward had been Governor of Rhode Island and was a founder of Brown College. He was governor at the time of the passing of the Stamp Act in 1765 and was the only colonial Royal Governor to openly oppose it. A stunch patriot, he undoubtedly would have been a signer of the Declaration of Independence but died some three months before it was adopted.

        Colección de las ordenanzas que para el Gobierno de el Obispado de Michoacan Hicieron y promulgaron con Real Aprobación sus Illmos. Señores Prelados.

      Edición de D. Felipe Zuñiga y Ontiveros, Reimpresa en México 1776 - "Large Sections Devoted To The Indians Of Michoacan". 8vo., modern vellum. A COMPREHENSIVE ACCOUNT OF THE ORGANIZATION OF THE BISHOPRIC OF MICHOACAN are provided by these Ordenanzas, originally published in 1685 and brought up to date in this revised edition by Casillas y Cabrera, Oficial mayor de la Secretaría del Obispado. They contain both the Ordenanzas issued in 1642 by Fr. Marcos Ramirez de Prado, bishop of Michoacan 1639-1666, and the much more extensive and detailed Ordenanzas issued by Juan de Ortega Montañez, bishop of Michoacan, Inquisitor of the Tribunal del Santo Oficio de México and Viceroy of New Spain (27/02/1696 a 18/12/1696). Both Ramirez and Ortega Montañez were concerned with the relationship between the clergy and the secular authorities, the reform of abuses and the need for the clergy to be above reproach, specially in their dealings with the Indians. Both bishops devote special sections to the natives: "De los naturales y como se han de tratar" (Ramírez, 36-40 pp.) and "Indios, su enseñanza de doctrina, y otros puntos a ellos pertenecientes (Ortega Montañez 164-194 pp.). Their instructions were designed both to provide protection for the Indians - Ramirez for example prohibits the purchase of land from Indians so there could be no question of the clergy having intimidated them - and to ensure their spiritual welfare. Procedures were laid down for dealing with natives who failed to fulfil their religious obligations or resisted indoctrination for themselves or their children. These included reporting them to the ministers of the law. Orders were given for the persecution of witchcraft, dancing, drunkenness etc. * Medina (México) 5923; Palau 56598; Sabin 67658.

        [BOUGAINVILLE] Voyage autour du monde, par la frégate du roi La Boudeuse, et La Flûte l'Étoile;

      en 1776, 1767. 1768 & 1769. Paris : Chez Saillant & Nyon, 1772. Second édition, augmentée. Two volumes, octavo, contemporary full mottled calf, spines with raised bands, gilt ornament and red labels with gilt lettering, marbled endpapers, all edges stained red, pp 336, 453, [3], first volume with 6 copper engraved maps (folding), second volume with 15 maps (folding) and 3 engraved plates, engraved headpieces, tailpieces and initials, contents of both volumes crisp and clean, a fine copy. Bougainville's voyage - the first French circumnavigation - was of immense importance in terms of the impetus it provided to a renewal of France's colonial empire following territorial losses suffered to Britain in the Seven Years' War: it opened up the Pacific for French expansion. Yet what cannot be overstated is the impact that Bougainville's own vivid and romanticised descriptions of the Pacific - specifically Tahiti - had on the French public imagination, her writers, artists and thinkers. The utopian ideal of the noble savage living in an Earthly Paradise owes much to Bougainville's response to his encounter with the Tahitian culture and landscape. Even though he was not the first European to reach Tahiti - the Englishman Samuel Wallis had done so one year earlier - Bougainville's account is fundamental to the formation of the European romantic vision of the South Seas. Bougainville had the imprimatur of the French government to undertake a voyage of exploration which would seek to gather scientific, geographical and cultural information. For example, his narrative includes the first vocabulary of the Tahitian language, which is also the first written glossary of any Polynesian language. The advancement of knowledge had not been the principle objective of French voyages of the preceding period, which were motivated by commercial interests. After entering the Pacific through the Straits of Magellan early in 1768, Bougainville went in fruitless search of the fabled 'Davis Land', which was rumoured to exist to the west of Chile. He then took possession of the Tuamotu Archipelago and Tahiti for France, providing in his narrative an extensive, detailed and enthusiastic account of Tahiti. Crossing the Pacific he made landfall first in Samoa and then the New Hebrides. From the island of Espiritu Santo, with the thought of possibly discovering the east coast of New Holland, he struck out due west, a course which would have allowed him to reach the coast of Queensland. Fatefully, he was unable to navigate through the Great Barrier Reef, and sailing north instead, he passed through the Solomons (naming Bougainville for himself) and on to Batavia. Bougainville was to learn in Batavia of the exploits of the navigators Wallis and Carteret, both of whom had sailed across the Pacific a short time earlier. However, it was Bougainville's narrative which was to cause a sensation in France upon its publication, in some part because of its contribution to scientific and geographical knowledge but primarily for the account of Tahiti, which was to have such an enduring effect on the European imagination. The first edition of Voyage autour du monde, also published by Saillant & Nyon, appeared in 1771. Copies of this slightly expanded second edition are recorded in five Australian collections (National Library of Australia; State Library of New South Wales; State Library of Queensland; University of Queensland Library; State Library of Victoria).

        De la legislation, ou principes des loix.A Amsterdam, s.e., 1776.

      A Amsterdam, s.e. 1776 - Due volumi di cm. 16, pp. viii, 264; iv, 264. Legatura coeva in piena pelle maculata con titoli e ricchi fregi in oro al dorso, piatti inquadrati da triplice filetto; tagli marmorizzati. Fenditure a due cerniere (piatti comunque ben solidi), minime mancanze alle cuffie, mancanza di doratura in corrispondenza dei titoli del primo volume. Esemplare perlatro internamente fresco e ben conservato Gabriel Bonnot de Mably (1709-1785), pensatore politico francese, fratello del Condillac, va annoverato tra le principali figure della politica estera del Settecento francese. Nelle sue opere sviluppò concetti politici che a molti osservatori parvero come principi anticipatori delle idee rivoluzionarie, in realtà la visione sociale di Mably era suggerita più da istanze morali che da una visione complessiva di risistemazione socio-economica. Ebbe comunque modo di schierarsi con decisione contro il dispotismo illuminato dei fisiocrati caldeggiando lo sviluppo di una monarchia sorretta da istituzioni repubblicane. Quest'opera traccia i principi di una riforma della legislazione mirata alla creazione di un sistema giuridico meno condizionato dalla forte ingiustizia sociale che caratterizzava la Francia del tempo.

        BUZZARDS BAY AND VINEYARD SOUND].

      London: J.F.W. Des Barres for THE ATLANTIC NEPTUNE, April 25, 1776. - Large engraved chart from Des Barres' ATLANTIC NEPTUNE on two sheets of laid paper, joined, each bearing "J Bates" watermark. Sheet size: 43 x 31 inches. Contemporary hand- coloring in outline. Slightest offsetting. A superior copy. A highly important chart depicting Buzzards Bay and the Vineyard Sound, including the Elizabeth Islands and the western half of Martha's Vineyard compiled under the direction of Joseph Des Barres. Showing much more on- shore information than is typical for a Des Barres chart, there are details of property boundaries, structures, even a road from Menemshaw Pond to Tisbury. Native names throughout remain largely unchanged today. This is one of the most interesting charts from the vast ATLANTIC NEPTUNE project. THE ATLANTIC NEPTUNE was the first new survey of American coastlines in a century, and the need was very great. Joseph Des Barres was born in Switzerland in 1721 and educated in Basel before emigrating to England and entering the Royal Military College where he learned engineering and the art of surveying. In 1756, Des Barres was commissioned a lieutenant in the Royal American Regiment and dispatched to North America. He served in America during the Seven Years' War under Col. Bouquet, Lord Howe and Gen. Amherst, and participated in the Quebec campaign as Gen. Wolfe's engineer. In the late 1760's the project of surveying the entirely Atlantic coastline of North america began, working from north to south, under Des Barres' direction. Although Des Barres was directly responsible for the surveys done of Nova Scotia and the Isle of Sable, the surveying of much of the coastline of what became the United States was undertaken by Major Samuel Holland, a Dutchman, who joined the British army during the French and Indian War as an engineer, and became ultimately Surveyor General for North America. Holland was in charge of a rather large staff that included Charles Blaskowitz and George Gauld. They ultimately provided greatly improved charts for the entire coastline and the Gulf of Mexico. All this work was done prior to the Revolution, which brought the surveys to an end. The publishing supervised by Des Barres continued throughout the war years. Des Barres compiled and edited the atlas, maintaining a high standard throughout. His primary motive seems to have been the navigational usefulness of the charts. He clearly envisioned a navigator's needs in approaching a shoreline. The charts were plagiarized for the next thirty or forty years. Des Barres also had a flare for making charts aesthetically appealing, so that they are invariably handsome as well as unfailingly interesting. This is the fourth state of seven recorded by Stevens.
