(Sir Walter Raleigh; Guy Fawkes) Hargrave, Francis; Thomas Salmon; Sollom Emlyn
London: Printed by T. Wright ..., and sold by G. Kearsly, 1777. Fourth edition. Hardcover. Very good condition. Trials of pirate Captain Kidd, and New York colonial politician Nicholas Bayard, complete in itself. Captain William Kidd (c.1654 - 1701) was a Scottish sailor who was tried and executed for piracy, although some modern historians note that relegating him to the role of pirate and putting him on trial was a maneuver used by politicians of the day to deflect attention from their own questionable roles in privateering. Here Kidd testifies that he has French passes, which would have provided proof that he worked as a privateer and not a pirate: "I beg your Lordship's Patience till I can procure my Papers. I had a Couple of French Passes, which I must make use of in order to my Justification" (p287). Kidd was not allowed to retrieve his papers; he was found guilty on all charges (murder and piracy) and sentenced to death. (pp287-339). In 1910 at the British Public Records archives, the French passes were found that Captain Kidd claimed would prove his innocence. The second trial of note included here is that of Colonel Nicholas Bayard, p419-440. Bayard, the 16th mayor of New York City, was accused in 1702 of high treason before Chief Justice William Atwood, on the basis of a remonstrance signed by him and others, considered to be libelous. Bayard was sentenced to death, but after the death of the New York governor and the corrupt Chief Justice, the proceedings were annulled, and Bayard's property and name were cleared.&# … [Click Below for Full Description]

WEATHERBY, James
London: by H. Reynell, 1777. WITH THE GILT CREST OF THE COMTE DE CLERMONT. Vol. 5 only, 6-7/8" x 4-1/4", bound in fine full red French morocco, gilt decorated spine, gilt lettered green morocco spine label, covers elaborately tooled and paneled, gilt crest of Comte De Clermont to both covers, gilt dentelles, all edges gilt, internally clean and bright, inner and outer hinges fine, head of spine fine, small chip to foot of spine near rear hinge otherwise VERY GOOD. The only reference to Milord Comte de Clermont we could find was in the "Figaro" a non-political French newspaper "bearing the name of the owner Milord Count of Clermont, who won in 1785 the Derby with Aimw". This would at least explain why he would be in possession of a Horse Racing book. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Elwe Jan Barend (1777 - 1777) Amsterdam
Artist: Elwe Jan Barend ( - 1777) Amsterdam; issued in: Amsterdam; date: ca 1792. - technic: Copper print; - colorit: original colored; - condition: Double fold lower right; - size (in cm): 46 x 61; - description: Decorative double hemishere map, surrounded by figurative representations of the continents, Asia, Europe, America and Africa. California as an island. The Island of California refers to a long-held Spanish misconception, dating from the 16th century, that California was not part of mainland North America but rather a large island separated from the continent by a strait now known as the Gulf of California.One of the most famous cartographic errors in history, it was propagated on many maps during the 17th and 18th centuries, despite contradictory evidence from various explorers. The legend was initially infused with the idea that California was a terrestrial paradise, like the Garden of Eden or Atlantis. Australia not completely depicted as the complete coast was not charted at that time. - vita of the artist: Jan Barend Elwe ( 177 - 1815), was a Dutch publisher and book seller who reissued maps by De L Isle and Ottens and some other cartographers in the late 18th century. His famous map "Amerique Septentrionale Divisee en ses Principales Parties" was derived mainly from Sanson?s and Jaillot?s maps of 1656 and 1676. At this time, California was no longer shown as an island, but as a peninsular, and the Great Lakes to the north are enclosed, which was another feature often shown incorrectly on earlier maps of America. This map has been published in 1792 in an Atla … [Click Below for Full Description]

Octavo, 6 volumes, bound in contemporary full polished brown calf, black morocco spine labels, smooth spines with gilt rules and decorations, marbled endpapers. Frontispiece in volume one after Hogarth. In near fine condition. Tristram Shandy is considered by many the first modern novel and the father of stream of consciousness writing. It is perhaps the most literal example of a novel available. Sterne was an Anglican Vicar who was influenced by Pope, Locke, Swift and Cervantes. His narrative devices and styles have indelibly influenced many modern and postmodern authors: James Joyce, Virginia Woolf, Milan Kundera, Salmon Rushdie among others.

FREDERIC II
Lettre de la main du secrétaire signée à son ami VOLTAIRE « Du Roi de prusse à Mr de Voltaire ». Potsdam ce 11eme d’octobre 1777 ; 2 pages in-4. « Pardon de mon bavardage de légiste, c’est vous qui m’avez mis sur cette matière, je ne l’aurois pas hazardé de moi-même » Magnifique lettre inédite des dernières années de Frédéric le Grand, despote éclairé, dont l’influence bienfaisante de Voltaire insuffle des lois nouvelles : « Je suis très persuadé que si Marc-Aurèle s’étoit avisé d’écrire sur le Gouvernement, que son ouvrage auroit été bien supérieur à ma brochure. L’expérience qu’il avoit acquis en gouvernant cet immense Empire Romain, devoit être bien au-dessus des Nations que peut avoir résumé un chef des Obotrites et des Vandales, et Marc-Aurèle personnellement étoit si supérieur par sa morale pratique aux souverains, et j’ose dire aux Philosophes mêmes, que toute comparaison qu’on fait avec lui est téméraire. Laissons donc Marc-Aurèle en l’admirant tous deux, sans pouvoir atteindre à sa perfection, et en nous mettant au niveau de notre médiocrité, rabaissons nous à la stérilité de nôtre siècle, qui s’épuisant pour donner un Voltaire au monde, n’a pas eu la force de lui fournir des Emules. Je vois donc que les Suisses pensent sérieusement à réformer leurs Loix : le Code Carolin m’est connu, j’ai fourré mon nez dans ces anciennes Législations, lorsque j’ai cru nécessaire de réformer les Loix des habitans des bords de la Baltique : ces Loix étoient des Loix de sang, ainsi qu’on nommoit celles de Dracon, et à mesure que les Peuples se sont civilisés, il faut adoucir leurs L … [Click Below for Full Description]

Paris, imp. de Cailleau, 1777, plaq. in 4°, de 8pp., - suivies d'une Série des 9 gravures montrant les crimes et le supplice de Desrues imprimées en 1777 par Cailleau (format 16 x 24 cm), le tout en 1 vol. demi-percal. brune XIXe, p. de t. rouge. Très rare factum publié par Cailleau contre le criminel Desrues. Il est suivi ici d'une série de 9 gravures rares qui figurent à la suite de certains exemplaires de la "Vie privée et criminelle d'Antoine-François Desrues" rédigé et publié par le même Cailleau en 1777. L'épicier Desrues s'était enrichi d'escroqueries et empoisonna la femme et le fils de son créancier. Il fut roué vif en 1777 en place de Grève, son corps fut brûlé et les cendres dispersées. La littérature populaire s'empara très vite du cas pour en faire le prototype de l'assassin fourbe et méchant, ceci d'autant plus qu'il aurait été hermaphrodite. L'affaire causa un grand trouble dans la population, car le petit peuple voyait en lui un simple martyr, ce qui conduisit les autorités à faire diffuser des textes et images pour convaincre le public de sa culpabilité. Cailleau semble avoir été l'homme de cette propagande. Les gravures sont toutefois très rares. Le cat.

In addition the scientific discoveries in the fields of natural history and ethnology were considerable and the drawings made by the artists were of great significance. See ODNB.

Milton, John
Robert Bell, Philadelphia, 1777. [3]-15,328pp. plus frontispiece portrait. Contemporary calf, worn and rubbed, spine head chipped. Contemporary ownership signature of Philip S. Bunting on recto of frontispiece and dedication page, small dampstain to lower margin of first third of text, minor foxing and toning. Very good. Lacking half title. In a half morocco box. First American edition of PARADISE LOST, with the excessively rare frontispiece portrait of Milton engraved by John Norman. This first American edition was issued together with Milton's PARADISE REGAIN'D, the two works being paginated continuously, and the twelfth book of PARADISE LOST included in the volume of PARADISE REGAIN'D. In the midst of the American Revolution, and over a century after the first publication of PARADISE LOST in London, Philadelphia printer Robert Bell ignored British copyright and published Milton's famous work. Milton's epic poem was among the most influential works of literature in the colonies and among the Founding Fathers. Thomas Jefferson cited Milton more than any other author in his childhood daybooks; and Thomas Paine would quote Milton's Satan in COMMON SENSE (1776): "For never can true reconcilement grow where wounds of deadly hate have pierced so deep." Interestingly, Robert Bell would be the first American printer to publish both John Milton and Thomas Paine. This copy belonged to Philip S. Bunting, the son of Samuel Bunting and Esther Bunting (Syng), who was the daughter of Philip Syng, Jr. and Elizabeth Syng. A prominent Philadelphian silversmith, Philip Syng was best known f … [Click Below for Full Description]

"Ich habe diese Tage über einige Versuche über die Elecktricität gemacht, mit dem Harzstaub, die mir jene Entdeckung immer wichtiger machen. Unter anderm habe ich mit einem einzigen Schlag eine Menge Concentrischer Circkel hervorgebracht [...]. Es ist freilich gespielt, allein ein so schönes lehrreiches Spiel, daß ich mich dessen nie schämen werde." (Bw 1, 440, Lichtenberg an Johann Andreas Schernhagen, 5. Februar 1778).

Hodges, 63 engraved plates, maps and charts, 1 folding letterpress table. Contemporary mottled calf, rebacked. Fourth edition of Cook's second voyage describing his attempt to circumnavigate the globe as far south as possible in search for a southern continent. "Cook earned his place in history by opening up the Pacific to western civilization and by the foundation of British Australia. The world was given for the first time an essentially complete knowledge of the Pacific Ocean and Australia, and Cook proved once and for all that there was no great southern continent, as had always been believed. 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" (Printing and the Mind of Man p.135). "The success of Cook's first voyage led the Admiralty to send him on a second expedition, described in the present work, which was to circumnavigate the globe as far south as possible in search of any southern continents ... the men of this expedition became the first to cross the Antarctic Circle. Further visits were made to New Zealand, and on two great sweeps Cook made an astonishing series of discoveries and rediscoveries including Easter Island, the Marquesas, Tahiti and the Society Islands, Niue, the Tonga Islands, the New Hebrides, New Caledonia, Norfolk Island, and a number of smaller islands.

Etichetta di legatoria. Ottimo esemplare in barbe. Ristampa settecentesca (e seconda edizione assoluta) dell'edizione originale del 1581 di questa celebre opera della storiografia piemontese rinascimentale in cui il Pingone fece risalire le origini della nobiltà sabauda al semileggendario Beroldo, figlio di Ugo di Sassonia e fratello di Ottone III. La narrazione giunge sino ai tempi di Carlo Emanuele il Grande, con dettagliate rassegne dei titoli, dei feudi, dei principi, etc. Il Pingone (Chambéry, 1525-Torino, 1582), barone di Cusy, studiò a Padova e a Roma. Emanuele Filiberto lo fece consigliere di stato, referendario, vice-gran cancelliere, riformatore dell'Università torinese. Fra i principali storiografi piemontesi della Rinascenza, compose egli stesso la cronaca della propria vita, edita solo nel 1779. Cfr. (prima edizione) Bersano Begey, I, 419.

PRIESTLEY, Joseph / GIBELIN, Jacques (trad.)
A Berlin, et se trouve à Paris : chez Saillant & Nyon, 1777-1780. Ouvrage complet en 5 t. reliés 5 vol in-12: 11 x 17 cm. I/ xxxvi-434-[2] pp., 2 pl. grav. dép.; II/ 2 ff., lxii-297 pp., 1 pl. grav. dép.; III/ 2 ff., iv-352 pp., 2 ff., 5 pl. grav. dép.; IV/ lii-404 pp., 2 pl. grav. dép.; V/ 2 ff., 404 pp., 1 pl. grav. dép. Édition française en partie originale de la traduction de l'ouvrage du savant britannique Joseph Priestley (1732-1804) "Experiments and observations on different kinds of air" paru à Londres dès 1772. Le 1er vol. est la réimpression de l'édition de 1775 dont la page de titre de 1775 est conservée en tête de ce volume de 1777, les tomes 2 à 5 sont en édition originale. Ouvrages illustrés d'un total de 11 pl. grav. dépliantes réparties dans les 5 vol. Reliures de l'époque en veau moucheté, dos à nerfs avec pièces de titre en maroquin rouge et pièces de tomaison en maroquin vert, à l'exception de celle du premier volume qui est jaune, plats encadrés d'un filet à froid, coupes ornées d'un filet doré, tranches rouges et gardes recouvertes de papier marbré. Très bel ensemble, propre et élégant. Joseph Priestley semble être le premier à découvrir une nouvelle substance gazeuse: l'air dephlogisticaté qui n'est autre que l'oxygène (O2). Comme il conduit les expériences qui l'amènent à cette "découverte" entre 1774 et 1776; il est difficile d'établir avec certitude qui, entre Lavoisier, Scheele et Priestley, est le premier a avoir identifié le célèbre gaz.
