Order of Congress
Printed by John Dunlap, 1778. First edition. Hardcover. 8vo. [2], I-520 (page 92 misnumbered 66), [1], ii-xxvii, [3]. Contemporary utilitarian binding consisting of black cloth over boards. This is the second issue with sheets printed by Robert Aitken in Philadelphia combined with new sheets printed by John Dunlap in York. Aitken was unable to remove his printing equipment from Philadelphia prior to the British occupation in 1777 whereas Dunlap had moved his equipment to Lancaster and thence to York, Pennsylvania while the British Army was advancing towards the city. Hildeburn quotes Aitken in regard to Volume II of the journals: "I printed 800 copies of the second volumes, 50 were carried to Lancaster, and committed to the care of Mr. Dunlap. I find of the 750 other copies only 532 were delivered. I allow 218 copies as they have been lost or embessled." Matyas indicates that a comparison of the 7 copies of the issue with the York-town imprint held by the Library of Congress with the first issue Philadelphia copies shows that the type settings are identical for signatures A-3G whereas the remaining signatures reflect a new type setting (and thus are the sheets printed by Dunlap). It is generally supposed that the original sheets printed by Aitken must have been lost or damaged in the flight from Philadelphia. The upshot is that there are no more than 50 copies of the second issue with the York-town imprint. All other volumes of the Journals of Congress were printed in Philadelphia. Robert Aitken printed the first two volumes of the Journals of Congress, John Dunlap printed … [Click Below for Full Description]

LOCHÉE, Lewis (d. 1791)
For the author and sold by T. Cadell, London, 1778. v, [1], [2], 78, [2]pp. 9 engraved folding plates. Publisher's blue paper covered boards, paper covering the spine perished but cords holding The tents of the American Revolution. This rare work is the first comprehensive guide in English of the types of tents used in the field by British and American armies during the Revolutionary era, with an essay on the military art of "castrametation" -- the laying out of encampments. The 9 folding plates include measured plans and projections of military tents, from the small wedge tents of enlisted to the large "marquee" tents used of commissioned officer's quarters and other specialized tents. In addition are diagrams of the "tent city" field cantonments or encampments that were typical of those utilized by British and American armies in the field during the Revolutionary War. The plans and perspective drawings for officer's marquee tents in this book are nearly identical to General George Washington's sleeping and "headquarters" marquee or dining tent, both of which survive today in the Museum of the American Revolution and the National Museum of American History, respectively. Born in the Netherlands, Lochée ran a military school in Little Chelsea from the early 1770s to 1790. Until the establishment of the Royal Military College in 1801, most officers were trained privately. Coincidentally, Lochée lived and operated the school from a house previously owned by Henry Middleton, the father of the Signer of the Declaration Arthur Middleton. Scarce, with ESTC recording only four exa … [Click Below for Full Description]

Habermann, Franz Xaver
Academie Imperiale d'Empire des Arts Libereaux, Augsburg, 1778. A fanciful hand-colored rendering of Revolutionary New York, as the norm for Vue d'Optiques, which were typically drawn by artists who had never been to the places depicted. 30 by 41 cm. The city looks more like Berlin or Hannover than New York. The marching soldiers are also obviously imagined and not based on a drawing or sketch from life. Among other things, the British soldiers are generally not wearing redcoats, and so the uniforms are probably more in the style of some German army's. Nonetheless, the print does evidence the newsworthiness of the American Revolution in Europe as well as the distortions that entered into its remote coverage. Condition: stains and soiling around perimeter. On heavy card, so the print itself is sturdy.

Price, Richard
London: T. Cadell, 1778. [2],xxvi,181-216pp. plus folding table. Modern pale blue wrappers. Minor foxing, small repair to upper margin of folding table. Very good. In a half morocco and cloth folding case, spine gilt. Richard Price was a well-known British Presbyterian minister and the author of several notable books about moral philosophy and economics. He was particularly friendly with a number of Americans, and vigorously argued their part in the British debate over colonial taxation and government. Price's OBSERVATIONS ON THE NATURE OF CIVIL LIBERTY... was one of the most important pro- American works published as the debate neared its crisis in 1776. It first appeared in February 1776 in London and went through numerous British and American editions. The following year Price produced his ADDITIONAL OBSERVATIONS... as a sequel to the earlier work. THE GENERAL INTRODUCTION AND SUPPLEMENT... was published in 1778, and is present here in one of two issues of the first edition. Price used this work to clarify points he made earlier, and to further advance his arguments. Adams notes that it is often found bound up with varying editions of the two earlier works (which explains the pagination), though here it is on its own. AMERICAN CONTROVERSY 78-88b. HOWES P584.

Set of Three Very Large Antique Holy Bibles 1778 , 1813 & 1844 Set of Three Very Large Antique Holy Bibles 1778 , 1813 & 1844 A beautiful and very rare set of three antique holy bibles, each containing the new and old testaments. The oldest dates from 1778, it is Willoughby's Family bible, published in London by J. Wilkie. It's in quite remarkable condition for it's age, there is some minor damage to the spine so this must be handled with extreme care, but all is intact. The next oldest is from 1813, published in Liverpool by Nuttall, Fisher & Dixon. This one also has some damage to the spine, it looks as though it may have been repaired; all is intact but again, this must be handled with care. The third dates from 1844, and was published in Glasgow by Blackie & Son. This one is structurally very sound, but as with all of these extremely old books, must be handled with care! All three have beautiful illustrations, and have beautifully worn covers with plenty of patina and character. It's hard to get a sense of the scale in the images, but these are really quite huge and very impressive.

[CONDAMINE, Charles Marie de la, and Isabelle GODIN DES ODONAIS].
30 pp. (= p. 329-359 of the original work).Rare offprint of 2 letters, originally published in Charles Marie de la Condamine's Relation abregée d'un voyage fait dans l'interieur de l'Amérique méridionale (Maastricht, 1778). The first letter gives an acount of Condamine's journey aimed at measuring the circumference of the earth. The second is a letter by the French Isabel Godin des Odonais (1728-1792) to Condamine. In this letter, she describes her terrible journey from the province Quito (Ecuador) to Cayenne (French Guiana) via the Amazon. At first Isabel would join her husband, Jean, on his expedition to measure the earth, but couldn't because she got pregnant. When Jean wanted to return home, he was refused permission by the Spanish and Portuguese authorities because he was a Frenchmen. Isabel decided to sail with a small crew down the Amazon, a 3000-mile journey. Most of the crew either died or abandoned Isabel, and after being on her own for nine days, she met some Indians who helped her to reach Cayenne.With a few faint stains on some of the last pages, otherwise in good condition.l Ferreiro, Measure of the earth, pp. 270-271; Garraux, p. 164 ("Pièces fort rares et non citées dans Brunet, ni dans les catalogues spéciaux sur l'Amérique"); Sabin 38482.

DUMONT, Pierre Joseph and Jacques Salbigoton QUESNÉ.
IV, [5]-46 pp.First edition of the English translation of an eye-witness account of slavery in Africa. The French writer Jacques Salbigoton Quesné (1778-1859) mentions in the introduction that one day he heard of a man returning to Paris after being enslaved for 34 years in Africa. Reckoning his tale must be very suitable for publication, he invited this man, Pierre Joseph Dumont, to his house.

[MANUSCRIPT - FORTIFICATION]. HOOFF, Cornelis Christiaan van.
[1], [1 blank], 81, [1 blank], [1], [3 blank] pp. plus 19 integral blank ll. with drawings tipped onto them.Unpublished manuscript for a complete introductory course in the design and construction of fortifications, with 19 large folding leaves with meticulously drawn fortification plans and sections in colour. It was compiled, drawn and written by Cornelis Christiaan van Hooff (1778-1812), then an 18-year-old Lieutenant in the Dutch Napoleonic corps of military engineers. The title notes that it follows the methods of Blaise François, Comte de Pagan (1604-1665), Sébastien Le Prestre de Vauban (1633-1707) and Menno van Coehoorn (1634-1704), the greatest 17th-century French and Dutch masters of the art of fortification. Van Hooff began to study law but switched to engineering. The French Revolutionary army invaded the Netherlands in 1794/95 and the Batavian Republic was proclaimed on 19 January 1795. Van Hooff became a Lieutenant in the corps of engineers on 28 October 1795. He produced the present manuscript in the following year. He was to rise to the rank of Lieuitenant-Colonel in 1809, but requested and received an honorary discharge in 1810, apparently due to poor health, and died in 1812 at age 33. With library stamp. In very good condition. The binding is rubbed, but still good.l For Van Hooff: Van der Aa VIII, pp. 1084-1085 (mentioning what may be the present manuscript).

GALLAND, P.J.
[4], 515, [1]; 552, [2]; 492, [2] pp.Very rare first and only edition of a compendious educational work intended for girls, dedicated (in the newly restored Bourbon monarchy) to Marie Thérèse de France (1778-1851), Duchesse d'Angoulême and daughter of King Louis XVI and Queen Marie Antoinette, the only heir directly descended from Louis XVI to survive the Revolution. The dedication itself appears in volume 1 (1817), but is noted on all three title-pages (so also 1816). The present copy is in a beautiful armorial morocco binding clearly intended as a dedication copy for Marie Thérèse, with her arms on both boards of each volume. She had married her first cousin Louis Antoine d'Artois (1775-1844), Duc d'Angoulême in 1799 (he was to be King of France for 20 minutes in 1830 when his father and he abdicated, then pretender to the throne, calling himself Louis XIX). She was nearly forty and childless when the book appeared, soon after the 1814/15 restoration of the Bourbon monarchy with her uncle as King Louis XVIII. Rather than impale the husband's and father's arms as the English did, French ladies displayed them side by side: courtoisie. The book contains lessons in all subjects girls of good family should be taught. The first volume covers French grammar and syntax, with separate courses for younger and older girls, followed by a basic course in rhetoric. The second volume covers arithmetic and geography in single, extensive courses. The third and last volume covers history and mythology, again with separate courses for the younger and older girls, both presented like a catec … [Click Below for Full Description]

Written by Jack (Captain James) Cook, Commanding Officer of The Resolution. Volume 1 to 4. French Language. Published by Hotel De Thou in 1778. 4 Unbound Books. Deckle edged pages. Size: 10/12 x 8 1/2 inches. Page number: 458, 432, 374, 413. With 57 of the numbered 64 engravings present, plus decorative flourishes in the test. Many of the maps and images fold out. Condition: Very Good. The pages, but for some light foxing in all 4 volumes, and other marks of no particular significance, are very fresh. They have very uneven edges and are held together by just one stitch. It is my impression that the book when bought would have been bound according to the choice of the owner and it is for this reason that the whole is rather loosely put together. A few of the pages are torn at the edges. The pages in the later part of Book 2 have worm holes and these affect some of the prints. The front and back pages of all 4 volumes are slightly grubby where they have not been protected by jackets. There is a small water mark on the frontispiece, a portrait of Captain Cook. Seven plates from a total of 64 are missing. These are nos. 2, 15 and 16 from the first Volume : nos. 24, 28 and 33 the second and no 41 from the third. A heavy set.

HERDER, Johann Gottfried].
Leipzig, in der Weygandschen Buchhandlung 1778[–9]. First edition of an anthology of ‘northern’ ballads, collected and, where necessary, translated into German by Herder. German interest in folksongs began in the middle of the eighteenth century, stoked in no small part by the Europe-wide mania for Ossian. Thomas Percy’s influential Reliques of Ancient English Poetry (1765) was also much admired, and Herder, who had been sent a copy by Rudolf Erich Raspe (of Munchausen fame) in August 1771, the same month Herder wrote the first draft of his essay Über Ossian und die Lieder alter Völker, responded to calls for a German Percy. In 1773, he began translating sections of the Reliques and collecting other North European folksongs for a volume of ‘Alte Volkslieder, englisch und deutsch zusammen’ which, though sent to the press, on account of numerous errors by the printer was never published. In 1777, Herder returned to the project, and the first volume, now titled simply Volkslieder, appeared the following year. A glance at the contents pages reveals the extraordinary range of the originals—Lithuanian, Spanish, Swiss, Danish, Skaldic, Morlach, Greek, Estonian, Lapp, Latvian, Greenlandic—but as Percy’s Reliques was the impetus, most come from English or Scots. Other sources include Ramsay’s Tea-table Miscellany, D’Urfey’s Wit and Mirth, or Pills to purge Melancholy, Camden’s Remaines, Ossian, and, perhaps surprisingly, Shakespeare (Measure for Measure, Cymbeline (two extracts), The Tempest, As You Like It (two extracts), Othello, Twelfth Night, Hamlet), who also provides the quota … [Click Below for Full Description]

Delineations of Cutaneous Diseases: exhibiting the characteristic appearances of the principal genera and species comprised in the classification of the late Dr Willan; and completing the series of engravings begun by that author. London: Longman, 1828. 4to (290 x 230 mm). 72 stipple-engraved color plates with guard sheets enhanced with hand-coloring, by J. Stewart and L. Sailliar after Bateman and Strutt. Period half calf antique, marbled boards (wear, paper losses, corners slightly bumped). PROVENANCE: Collection of Quentin Keynes Second edition of "THE FIRST ATLAS OF DERMATOLOGY" (Garrison-Morton). Bateman completed the morphological system of classifying skin diseases which his teacher, Robert Willan, left half finished at his death. In 1814 Bateman obtained the copyright to the 34 plates for Willan's On Cutaneous Diseases. To these plates, which he had refurbished, he added a new set of 38 plates depicting the later genera of dermatoses, which had never before been illustrated. Bateman's atlas of skin diseases was published in twelve fascicles of six plates each, issued quarterly from 1814 to 1817. According to information in the publisher's ledgers, now held at the University of Reading, the parts were reprinted as stock declined up until circa 1830, with between 450 and 650 copies of each part eventually printed, suggesting a total edition size for the work of about 500 copies.
