Edward Terry
London: J. Wilkie, 1777. Hardcover. Very good. Edward Terry (1590-1660) was an English chaplain and travel writer. In 1615 he sailed to India as a chaplain with the London East India Company. The title page of this 1777 volume states "Reprinted from the Edition of 1655 with Copper-Plates." The binding is rebacked, preserving the original calf boards. The rebacking appears to be both expert and vintage, as the spine shows some age as well. The boards show wear, particularly at the corners, but remain respectably intact. The contents are impressively clean and bright. The frontispiece, folding map and three plates are all present as called for. There is a previous owner's bookplate on the ffep. The only sign of light spotting detected is confined to the blank verso of the frontispiece. "The author accompanied Sir Thomas Roe as his chaplain during the latter's embassy to India 1615-1619; his journal is a valuable complementary account".

BAILLY, [JEAN SYLVAIN]
M. Elmesly; Paris: De Bure l'a? Londres: M. Elmesly; Paris: De Bure l'aîné, 1777. FIRST EDITION . Hardcover. 216 x 140 mm (8 1/2 x 5 1/2"). 2 p.l., 348 pp. FIRST EDITION. Pleasing recent retrospective dark calf, raised bands, red morocco label. Title page with contemporary ownership signature of M. M. Moseley, two leaves with neat repairs where library stamps were likely removed, occasional marginalia in a contemporary hand. Caillet 650; Wellcome II, 87; Blake, p. 27. Very faint dampstaining in most of the text, slightly more noticeable on about a dozen leaves, but never offensive, otherwise the text fresh and even rather bright, and the attractive sympathetic binding unworn. This is a first edition of the correspondence between the most eminent French philosopher of the Enlightenment, Voltaire, and the astronomer Jean Sylvain Bailly (1736-93) concerning the latter's controversial first book on the history of science, Histoire de la'stronomie ancienne (1775). A respected writer and scientist who was a member of the French academies both for the sciences and for arts and letters, Baily had made the rather astonishing assertion in this work that the science of astronomy had begun in the mythical civialization of Atlantis, which he believed to have been located near the North Pole. According to his theory, refugees from the doomed island had made their way to India and then to Europe, bringing their scientific knowledge with them. Bailly sent a copy of his book to the ailing Voltaire, who repsonded graciously but skeptically. Voltaire's three letters are publi … [Click Below for Full Description]

Printed for the Author; and sold by G. Robinson and T. Slack, London 1777 - 248 x 184 mm (9 3/4 x 7 1/4"). xii, 363, [1] pp. FIRST EDITION. Attractive recent retrospective full calf, raised bands, one burgundy and one black morocco label. With a few woodcuts in the text and with five folding plates, as called for, illustrating agricultural implements and technology. Title page with flourished early ownership signature of J[o]n[athan] Donkin. Fussell, p. 111; Perkins 348; ESTC T-145953. Two plates with short tears along a fold (not touching image), occasional minor foxing, a little more noticeable on the plates, but still a fresh, clean, and appealing copy with ample margins and in a virtually unworn sympathetic binding. This practical guide for the farmer is constructed, unexpectedly, as a Socratic dialogue between "Philosophus," a wise natural philosopher and expert on the subject of husbandry, and "Agricola," the farmer/student whose name is both the Latin word for farmer and a tribute to the Roman general of that name. Clarke (ca. 1728-90) was a writer and lecturer on agricultural topics who was well respected for his knowledge and his improvements to farming technology. According to the DNB, "his central objective in this work is the rationalization of farming, to resolve 'the hitherto random Art of Husbandry into a Science.'" The dialogue format allows him to adopt a more conversational tone that the rather dry style of so many manuals, and the author has still made it easy to find a section on a particular topic with a very detailed table of contents.

N/a
Carmarthen - Ioan Ross, 1777 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A scarce edition of a sermon from the works of George Whitefield. Bound in paper wraps with a typed title label. Second Edition. To which is added hymns by Nathaniel Williams of Llanwinio (1742-1826). The title page bears a copperplate signature in ink. George Whitefield (17141770) was an Anglican Protestant minister who helped spread the Great Awakening in Britain and, especially, in the British North American colonies. He was one of the founders of Methodism and of the evangelical movement generally. He became perhaps the best-known preacher in Britain and America in the 18th century, and because he travelled through all of the American colonies and drew great crowds and media coverage, he was one of the most widely recognised public figures in colonial America. Condition: The binding is loose in places. There is very little wear to the extremities. Internally the pages have occasional significant spots, and browning. Pages three to ten and fifteen to twenty-two are detached. Overall the condition is very good indeed with a good only interior..

Forster, Georg
Lon., 1777.. b/w folding map. “Johann Reinhold Forster and Johann Georg Adam Forster, father and son, accompanied Cook’s second voyage as naturalists aboard the Resolution... It was intended that the elder Forster should write the official record of the voyage, but, after a dispute with the Admiralty concerning his emoluments, the offer was withdrawn. The Forsters then set to work writing a report of their own, based on Johann Reinhold’s journal and issued by Georg. This is an important and necessary addition to Cook’s voyages although the work has been criticized for its failure to acknowledge assistance derived from Cook’s journal. The Forster’s work was published before the official account.” - Hill 625. On this expedition Cook disproved the existence of a southern continent and was the first to cross the Antarctic Circle. See Spence, 464. Beddie, 1247. This is a clean copy in contemporary speckled calf, bindings tight. Edges of front blanks tanned from acidic binding glue. Outer inch of the title page in volume I has been cleanly cut away (as if to remove an old signature or inscription) with no loss of text. The large folding map in volume I is in good repair and shows only light offsetting. Backstrips somewhat darkened and slightly worn at spine ends. The labels, however, are quite handsome, and the set has a very nice appearance overall.

Goldsmiths No. 11579; ESTC T94803.& Translation of ‘Histoire philosophique et politique des etablissemens et du commerce des Europeans dans les Deux Indes.’& Raynall had the assistance of various members of the philosophe côteries in this his most important work. Diderot indeed is credited with a third of this work, which was characterized by Voltaire as "du réchauffé avec de la declamation." The other chief collaborators were Pechméja, Holbach, Paulze, the farmer-general of taxes, the Abbé Martin, and Alexandre Deleyre.& The Histoire went through many editions, being revised and augmented from time to time by Raynal; it was translated into the principal European languages, and appeared in various abridgments. Its introduction into France was forbidden in 1779; the book was burned by the public executioner, and an order was given for the arrest of the author, whose name had not appeared in the first edition, but was printed on the title page of the Geneva edition of 1780.

ROBERTSON, William
London: Printed for W. Strahan; T. Cadell, and J. Balfour, Edinburgh,, 1777. 2 volumes quarto (279 × 218 mm) Contemporary lightly sprinkled calf, red lettering- and green numbering-pieces, single fillet panel gilt to the boards, gilt milled edge-roll. Folding plate of Mexican hieroglyphics to volume II. Lightly rubbed, head-caps both a little chipped, joints just starting towards the tail, endpapers lightly browned and with some tan-burn from the turn-ins, some foxing, overall a very good set. First edition, bound with the half-titles, but without the maps issued later. Robertson had already established his reputation as "the leading historian in Europe" (ODNB) with his History of Scotland and life of Charles V, when he began researching a history of the colonization of the New World. The outbreak of hostilities in North America prompted him to publish the portion covering the sixteenth-century Spanish conquista. On publication it was very positively received, "Its success was even more marked on the continent, where it was considered Robertson's masterpiece ... and went through nine editions between 1777 and 1780. The book ... alternated chapters of narrative concerning the Spanish conquest with chapters of description of Native American culture and society. With its dramatic sweep of narrative, combined with a provocative confrontation of two very different stages of civilization and a prose that was more flexible and evocative than that of his earlier books, the History of America is often regarded as Robertson's most interesting, original, and even Romantic work".
