Robertson, William
Printed for W. Strahan, T. Cadell, J. Balfour, London, 1777. First edition of this important history of America, with four large engraved folding maps by Thomas Kitchin. Quarto, bound in full contemporary diced calf, gilt titles to the spine. In near fine condition, with the maps in near fine condition. William Robertson's history of the discovery of America and the conquest of Mexico and Peru was the "most highly regarded secondary source of its time" (Howes, 493). From its publication until the 1840s it "held its place as the standard history of the discovery of the New World" (Honour). "Its vivid descriptions and philosophical disquisitions on aboriginal society captivated the literary world, while the outbreak of the American war lent the book pertinent public interest and rendered it more popular than either of its predecessors. Keats, who read it with enthusiasm many years after, owed to it the suggestion of his famous simile of 'Cortez and his men" (DNB). Kitchin's maps "show a fine technical facility, the lettering and decoration from his workshop among the most impressive of all English rococo work" (DNB). Sabin 71973. Howes R358.

Sarah Harrison
ont> J. Rivington and Sons : London, 1777 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. The ninth edition of this uncommon cookery book for housekeepers in the eighteenth century, writing by Sarah Harrison. Last seen at auction in 2008. The ninth edition of this work. An uncommon work. Last seen at auction in 2008. ESTC citation number N17342. Bound without the front endpaper. This work is a duodecimo. The signatures run as [a1], A1, B-K12, A-B6. 'The House-keeper's Pocket-Book, and Compleat Family Cook' is a standard cookery work first published in 1733. It was a popular work when it was originally published, at a time when cookery books was a burgeoning genre and market. This work shows the common sensibility of trying to recommend ingredients that were of moderate price, and easy for a housekeeper or cook to get their hands on. Thus the author presents recipes which show elegance in eating, whilst in no way hindering frugality or good conduct. This helped the work's popularity among the public, as it didn't work to exclude those who couldn't afford certain ingredients. The author also offers information on what foods are in season throughout the year, and also presents monetary tables for people who were not mathematically inclined. Written by Sarah Harrison, who was active between the years 1733 and 1777. Very little is known about her life. Newspaper clipping tipped onto the front pastedown, from the Bromley and Kentish Times on 3rd July 1970, as stated by an ink inscription under the clipping.

WILLIAMS, John.
First edition of a lengthy survey of the northern countries of Europe. The author acknowledges the assistance he received from various heads of state and dignitaries, not only through conversation, but from access to their libraries and public records. "Williams, deriding Voltiare for describing a country he had never visited, seems to have been in Russia in 1770. He refers to his interviews in St Petersburg and Moscow, consulting manuscripts (in German) in the Kremlin, and travelling '1700 versts in the Russian dominions to form some idea of the character of the mass of the people in this state'. He provides an overview of the geography and history of Russia, dwelling in particular on the reign of Peter I and the overthrow of Peter III. There is little evidence of his own observations, even when writing on 'manners and customs'" (Cross).

Nel cartiglio in alto a sinistra: "Gioco dello /Mezza fazzada/ugnola sopra un Tro/feo con 2 ziogolini che/ spedirono le parti e poi/saltarono fatto da Nico/lotti e non d'altri sotto/il Capo Iseppo Tesso/ L'anno 1777". Impresso su carta vergata coeva (mm. 284 x 411), coloritura coeva, in basso a sinistra, annotazione manoscritta a matita "W.R.T. Venice: May 20, 1895", in ottimo stato di conservazione. La tavola raffigura lo spettacolo detto le "Forze d'Ercole". Durante il giorno del Giovedì Grasso si svolgevano questi giochi con piramidi umane fatte su macchine in cui si affrontavano i Castellani (abitanti nel sestiere di Castello, San Marco e Dorsoduro) contro i Nicolotti (abitanti dei sestieri di San Polo, Santa Croce e Cannaregio). I giochi sono a ricordo dell'episodio della presa di Aquileia, in cui i Castellani presero la città scavalcando le mura con delle piramidi umane. Erano piramidi umane che potevano arrivare anche a otto piani, competizione nella quale le due fazioni in gara si misuravano in forza, equilibrio e agilità. Potevano avvenire a terra e allora su botti si formava un tavolato sul quale i "Saorna" (così veniva chiamata la zavorra delle navi) costituivano la base solida che doveva sopportare tutto il peso e poi si saliva a colonne sino all'ultimo piano, generalmente un ragazzo detto il "Cimiereto" che si esibiva in acrobazie tipo "tombolo o impalo". Le piramidi erano di vari gradi di difficoltà con intento figurativo o allegorico e venivano presentate e classificate con un proprio nome. Tra le più famose si ricor … [Click Below for Full Description]

Edward Gibbon
1777. 88 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition. A very smart early edition set of Edward Gibbon's historical masterpiece. With volumes II-VI being the first edition, this lovely leather-bound library set retains bright pages and maps. Volume I is a third edition from 1777, with volumes II-VI being first editions from 1781-1788. It is not unusual to have a set whereby the first volume is not a first edition due to the scarcity of this publication. This third edition of volume I was one of 1000 copies printed. Volumes II and III were published at the same time, which is why some copies have the errata leaf of the third volume bound in volume II. To this set volume III's errata is to its own volume. This copy of volume III was issued without the publisher's adverts, as several were. (Norton) Frontispiece to volume II and an incorrectly bound 'Map of the Western Empire'. The 'Environs of Constantinople' map is bound at page 22 of volume II. A second 'Map of the Western Empire' is bound to volume III, as called for. The map of Constantinople was frequently cropped and bound in sideways. To this copy the map has retained its wide margins and is bound and folded the correct way, which is very scarce. (Norton) With the half-title to volumes III. There is an extra table of contents for volume I bound in to the start of volume II. A duplicate map of Western Empire is misbound to volume 2. A facsimile of the correct map 'Eastern Empire' is loosely inserted. G1/P. 41 to volume II is a cancel, with the original leaf provided in facsimile.

Walther, 1777.Part III of four sales of the duplicates and triplicates released for sale by the Kōnigliche (later Sächsische) Landes-Bibliothek of Dresden, one of the greatest of all German libraries, rich in the classics and in books bearing on the history and literary history of Germany, Poland, and France. The library was founded in the 16th century.It is no wonder that an auction of the duplicates and triplicates was held. Amongst the donations made to the library in the previous decade were the private collections of Count Heinrich II von Bünau (42,139 volumes given in 1764) and of Count Heinrich von Brühl (62,000 volumes given in 1768).This catalogue contains 9815 lots. There were two earlier sales in the series, in 1775 and 1776, and a fourth in 1802. In my Catalogue 37 (1987), the first in my "catalogus catalogorum" series, I described a "married" set of the first three volumes (now Getty; it took me some years to make this marriage). I cannot recall seeing another set or individual catalogue of this series on the market in the intervening years.Nice copy.❧ Loh, III, p. 155. Schwenke 372.

Francesco & Paolo SANTINI (Attivi a Venezia seconda metà del XVIII secolo)
1777. Grande carta in sei fogli incentrata sul mar Nero che interessa, oltre ovviamente alla Turchia, Ucraina, Russia e Caucaso. Unita, forma una grande mappa che si estende dal Egeo settentrionale al mar Caspio, dalle dimensioni totali di 1550x730 mm. Si basa sull'analoga opera in 3 fogli che Giovanni Antonio Rizzi Zannoni pubblica nel 1774. Incisione in rame, colorata d'epoca ai confini, mm 440x570 ogni foglio, in ottimo stato di conservazione. Fine example of the first state Santini's 6-sheet map of the Northern Part of the Ottoman Empire, centered on the Black Sea, published in Venice in 1779. The map was late reprinted by Giovanni Antonio Remondini. Santini's map is based upon Giovanni Rizzi-Zannoni's map of 1774. Rizzi-Zannoni's 3 sheet map of the Northern Ottoman Empire shows the Empire at the tail end of its centuries of control of Southeastern Europe. The map extends north and east to the Caspian Sea and Cossack Regions, and west to Romania, Hungary and Bulgaria, providing a fantastic geographical and topographical depiction of the region. Includes a fine decorative cartouche. The 6 sheet map was bound into the Atlas Universel. While there is some overlapping geography on the horizontal sheets, the sheets can be cut and joined to form a 6-sheet map approximately 60 inches wide and 34 inches tall. Copperplate with original outline colour, 6 sheet map, unjoined, with full margins, light waterstain in the lower white margins, otherwise very good condition.

Acquaforte, 1777 - così sembra di leggere. Nel cartiglio in alto a sinistra: "Gioco dello /Mezza fazzada/ugnola sopra un Tro/feo con 2 ziogolini che/ spedirono le parti e poi/saltarono fatto da Nico/lotti e non d’altri sotto/il Capo Iseppo Tesso/ L’anno 1777". Impresso su carta vergata coeva (mm. 284 x 411), coloritura coeva, in basso a sinistra, annotazione manoscritta a matita "W.R.T. Venice: May 20, 1895", in ottimo stato di conservazione. La tavola raffigura lo spettacolo detto le "Forze d’Ercole". Durante il giorno del Giovedì Grasso si svolgevano questi giochi con piramidi umane fatte su macchine in cui si affrontavano i Castellani (abitanti nel sestiere di Castello, San Marco e Dorsoduro) contro i Nicolotti (abitanti dei sestieri di San Polo, Santa Croce e Cannaregio). I giochi sono a ricordo dell'episodio della presa di Aquileia, in cui i Castellani presero la città scavalcando le mura con delle piramidi umane. Erano piramidi umane che potevano arrivare anche a otto piani, competizione nella quale le due fazioni in gara si misuravano in forza, equilibrio e agilità. Potevano avvenire a terra e allora su botti si formava un tavolato sul quale i "Saorna" (così veniva chiamata la zavorra delle navi) costituivano la base solida che doveva sopportare tutto il peso e poi si saliva a colonne sino all’ultimo piano, generalmente un ragazzo detto il "Cimiereto" che si esibiva in acrobazie tipo "tombolo o impalo". Le piramidi erano di vari gradi di difficoltà con intento figurativo o allegorico e venivano presentate e classificate con un proprio nome. Tra le più famose si ricor … [Click Below for Full Description]

Guenee, Antoine
Dublin: William Watson, 1777. First edition. Hardcover. 445, 428 pages. 21 x 14 cm. The controversy of Voltaire's anti-Semitism has been long disputed. He was at war with both Judaism and Christianity. He wanted to purge all men, of whatever persuasion, from these superstitions in order to make them enlightened. He ridiculed each of the major religions, but he was meanest to the Jews: ''You have surpassed all nations in impertinent fables, in bad conduct and in barbarism." Jacobins such as Jean Francois Rewbell in the 1790's and the socialist Pierre Proudhon in the next generation are among the many figures, especially of the left, who justified their arguments against the Jews by quoting Voltaire. Scattered toning, mostly in first and last leaves, tight and firm copy. Modern black leatherette, spines printed in gilt. Very good. 2 vols. Item #20951. [Attributes: First Edition]

JORDAN, John.
London Printed for the Author, and sold by S. Hooper... G. Kearsley... S. Leacroft... J. Robson and Co.... and J. Keating, Stratford upon Avon, 1777. 4to (260 × 210 mm) in half-sheets, pp. 48; with a large engraved title vignette ('The West View of Welcombe Hills') and a subscribers' list on pp. [39]-48; title and final page darkened and marked, small hole to title, some neat restoration to the blank verso, final leaf sometime reinforced in the fore-margin, old dampstain in the gutter towards the end; modern quarter calf. Scarce first (and only) edition, dedicated to 'the accomplished Mrs. Lloyd, Relict of the late Worthy John Lloyd, Esq; of Snitterfield, near Stratford'. Aubin describes it as 'very strong in antiquities and has as chief attraction a pathetic tale of early English times' (p. 94). This is the only work by Jordan, self-appointed Shakespeare sage of the late eighteenth century, to be published in his lifetime. A wheelwright by trade, and keen amateur actor, Jordan was a popular tour guide in Stratford. As a man full of Shakespeare lore (he promoted, for example, the story of Shakespeare's mulberry tree), he cannot resist including the Bard here: 'Hence eastward, Warwick tow'rs attract the sight; / And westward, Stratford domes no less delight, / Chiefly that ancient solemn pile, whose stones / Have long enclos'd the much-lov'd Shakespear's bones' (pp. 33-4), with a footnote on the 'not inelegant monument' in the Church, 'with his bust to the waste [sic], and his face painted to imitate flesh-colour, according to the absurd taste of those times.'

[PERRY, James] 'Adam STRONG', [pseudonym].
London: Printed for J. Bew, 1777. 4to (290 × 210 mm), pp. [4], iii, [1], 19, [2], complete with the half-title; early manuscript insertions; first leaf rather dusty, some fragility; uncut; modern quarter calf. First edition. 'A satirical poem on the amours of various members of the nobility' (ESTC) or, as the Monthly Review succinctly put it: 'Poetical smut. Rochester revived.' A number of imitations and replies were elicited. It is early work by Perry (formerly 'Pirie', 1756-1821), a Scottish journalist recently arrived in London 'to try to break into the literary world' (Oxford DNB). By the end of his career he had become 'one of the most notable journalists of the age when the newspaper press was becoming established as a force in the country' (ibid.) Studies of Gymnotus electricus by members of Royal Society and their correspondents had captured the imagination of the British public in unexpected ways. While the investigations of Walsh and Hunter made genuine discoveries into the nature of electricity (which culminated in the invention of Volta's battery), contemporary wits and pamphleteers took advantage of the phallic connotations of the eel and its electrical properties to deride the sexual peregrinations of London society. In this copy several of the printed lacunae have been filled in by a contemporary hand, identifying Lady Sarah Bunbury and Lady Grafton, among others, as devotees of the electrical eel.
