        A dictionary, Persian, Arabic, and English. To which is prefixed a dissertation on the languages, literature, and manners of Eastern nations.

      Oxford, printed at the Clarendon Press, sold by J. Murray and D. Price, 1777-1780. - Folio (275 x 407 mm). 2 vols. (4), XLVIII, (16) pp. 2144 (but: 2136: skipping 441-448) cols. (4) pp., XX cols., (6) pp., 2286 cols. 19th century English calf. First edition of the first Persian-Arabic-English dictionary, edited by the orientalist Sir John Richardson (1740/41-1795). The first volume includes a dissertation on the languages, literature and manners of Eastern nations. ''An excellent work. As the first vol. or Persian, Arabic and English part was published separately, many more copies were sold than of the second or English, Persian, and Arabic. A few broken sets of the first volume being left, the booksellers were led to reprint several deficient sheets, and so with the copies left on hand of the second vol. they made up some perfect sets. But these are easily known from the original'' (Clarke), as they are printed in London in 1800. - "On 12 November 1767 [Richardson] was proposed for the Society of Antiquaries of London as of Furnival's Inn. In London he pursued both the law and the study of Arabic and Persian. In his oriental interests Richardson was much influenced by another young man, William Jones, who was already coming to be regarded as a prodigy of learning in Asian languages. With the growth of British territorial power in India the potential market for a Persian dictionary had aroused the interest of London publishers and by 1770 Jones and Richardson were working on a new version of Franciscus Meninski's 'Thesaurus linguarum orientalium', first published in 1680-87. Progress was very slow, and Jones withdrew to concentrate on his legal career, leaving the field to Richardson. Thanks to his 'ingenuity and perseverance' (memorial of A. Hamilton and G. Nicol to East India Company, 6 Feb 1776, BL OIOC, E/1/60, no. 26), an abridged version of the original project eventually appeared in two volumes in 1777 and 1780 as A Dictionary, Persian, Arabic and English. Fundamentally revised by others, notably by Charles Wilkins in 1806 and 1810, the dictionary was to have a long life, but although the company took 150 sets, there were few other subscribers and Richardson got little reward for the huge effort he had expended on it" (Marshall). - Bindings rubbed and worn, inner hinges partly split, endpapers renewed. Some staining and marginal repairs to interior; larger tears to 5 leaves, staining to both titles, ownership inscriptions partly inked out; both titles showing central repaired clipping as well as marginal strenghtening and collector's stamp. A large part of both volumes shows worming to gutter; a few leaves with repairs. Zaunmüller 189. Vater/Jülg 25. Graesse VI, 113. Cf. Brunet IV, 1285 (later ed. only, 1806-1810). Clarke, John. (1806).

        Hortorum libri IV, et cultura hortensis. Hortorum historiam addidit Gabriel Brotier

      Paris: 1780. 12mo (149 x 82 mm.). [2] ff., xxxvi, 319, [1] pp. Engraved frontispiece of a gardener in classical setting, by Benoît Louis Prévost, Barbou’s woodcut device on title, woodcut, typographic and engraved head- & tailpieces. Publisher’s list of other works from the Collection d’Auteurs Latins on last page. Printed on pale blue paper (papier bleuté). Fine. Contemporary French gold-tooled red morocco, covers tooled to a dentelle design, smooth spine gilt with flower tools, gilt edges, blue watered silk liners (light scuffing to extremities, faint stain on front cover). Provenance: bookplates of Charles Lormier (oval monogrammed booklabel with motto Vita sina litteris mors est; sale, 7 parts, Paris, 1901-1907); Jules Lemaître (sale, Paris, 18 June 1917, no. 443); Henri Beraldi (sale, part 3, Paris, 18 Dec. 1934, no. 212); Alain de Rothschild.***A bibliophilic copy of an erudite edition, the first with Brotier’s commentary, of Rapin’s influential neo-Latin poem on gardening, first published in 1665. Brotier added a biographical introduction, exhaustive notes, and two long essays, on classical horticulture and on gardens in general, with an index of plant names in Latin and French. Rapin, whose poem is packed with classical allusions, was one of the only modern writers to be included in Joseph-Gérard Barbou’s Collection d’Auteurs Latins, all 68 volumes of which could be purchased (bound in calf) for 395 livres, as advertised on the last page. This copy was evidently highly prized and passed from one eminent bibliophile’s library to the next. Quérard VII:454; Brunet IV:1114; Sommervogel de Backer VI:1446.

        Examen de la Question, Si les Decimateurs ont l'Intention Fondee.

      1780 - 1780 Pamphlet Questioning the Church's Right to Raise Tithes in Flanders [Massez, C.]. Examen de la Question, Si les Decimateurs ont l'Intention Fondee en Droit a la Perception de la Dime des Fruits Insolites en Flandre, Tant Ceux, Qui Sont Insolites Parmi Toute la Province, que de Ceux, Qui ne Sont Insolites que pour Quelques Villages en Particulier. Ghent: Chez P.F. Cocquyt, 1780. vi, 84, [2] pp. Octavo (7-1/4" x 4-1/2"). Stab-stitched pamphlet in plain wrappers, untrimmed edges, early hand-lettered title to front, fragments of title label to spine. Some soiling and edgewear, later owner bookplate to verso of front wrapper. Some toning, light soiling to title page, internally clean. * Only edition located. Massez wishes to limit the rights of the church to raise tithes in Flanders. He notes that "God himself established tithes for the Jewish people, where it was part of the dividing-up of the lands, which God himself ordered: [however] amongst the Christian nations, it is men who have ordered this division, men have also introduced tithes there; thus [such a tax] depends on the civil law of each nation" (iii-iv). Massez discusses statutes from 1520 and 1530 onward and disputes their interpretation by Zeger Bernhard van Espen [1646-1728], the distinguished Flemish canon lawyer. OCLC locates 8 copies, 2 in North American law libraries (Columbia, UC-Berkeley). Not in the British Museum Catalogue. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Catalogo delle opere date finora alla luce da Gio. Batt. Piranesi

      1780. |~||~|WITH THREE ADDITIONS IN PIRANESI'S HAND PIRANESI, Giovanni Battista. Catalogo delle Opere Date Finora alla Luce da Gio. Battista Piranesi. Etching on laid paper. Printed on lower center of upper sheet: "Si vendono presso il medisimo Autore nel palazzo del Conte Tomati a Strada Felice, vicino alla Trinita de' Monti." Sheet size: 553 x 425 mm. Etched image: 395 x 295 mm. Professionally matted and framed. Roma: [NP], ca. 1761. This broadsheet has three annotations in brown ink, in Piranesi's own hand: the number "60" before the final printed Vedute del Pantheon paoli tre, the full title of the unlisted Vedute del Tempio della Sibilla in Tivoli, as well as the price of Dell Emissario del Lago Albano "2.50," which was left empty in this state of the printed version. An original, illustrated single etched sheet, Piranesi's Catalogo offered a periodically-updated list of the works engraved and published by Piranesi. Each work is briefly described, and a short statement of the contents and sometimes the price is provided. The physical design comprises advertising text surrounded by a receding entablature of several framed vedute of Rome within a setting of Roman antiquities. Piranesi's Catalogo remains an intriguing association item that was reissued by Piranesi throughout his career. This is the second state of the Catalogo according to Hind, with vedute listed up to 60. Wilton-Ely calls it the first state, supplying a reproduction of the same impression as our printed version. However, recent research by Andrew Robison has identified up to 31 individual states, this impression matches the sixth state from his list. Advertised on this sheet are the: Antichita Romanae, Carceri D'Invenzione, Architetture Diverse, Della Magnificenza ed Architettura de' Romani, etc. For the Vedute di Roma a full list of the individual etchings is given in rough chronological order. Since the vedute were executed over a number of years, succeeding states of the Catalogo contain ever-increasing numbers of etchings under the Vedute di Roma heading. Overall, a nice example of this appealing and now increasingly rare Piranesi item. Robison VI of 31. Hind, p. 6, #2 of 13. Wilton-Ely, Giovanni Battista Piranesi: The Complete Etchings, I, A. (p. 14) and reproduction, p. 15. Ficacci, Giovanni Battista Piranesi: The Complete Etchings (Cologne: Taschen, 2000), p. 52, who cites 25 separate states or printings of the Catalogo.

      The First Edition set in two folio volumes; folio volumes; with engraved portrait frontispiece; list of subscribers.,22 full page engraved plates; in contemporary tree calf with a later professional reback, with original morocco labels laid down.From Moule's Bibliotheca Heradica: "Opposite the title of the first volume is the portrait of the author in his tabard and collar of SS, within an oval frame". "The dedication "To the King," 1 page; then a list of Subscribers, pp. 2, in which are both their Majesties, and four others of the Royal family, 18 Dukes (most of them for large-paper copies), 1 Marquess, 36 Earls, 11 Viscounts, I Bishop, 35 Barons, 40 Baronets, and 299 other subscribers, several of whom are for two sets, a tolerable proof of the interest which his work had excited, or of the success of his applications" [Moule, Bibliotheca Heraldica, p. 432]. Edmondson was a coach-painter, and a good one, who had a busy trade emblazoning coats of arms on carriages. He was elected a fellow of the Society of Antiquaries, and an appointment in the College of Arms; these honors did not stop him from carrying on with his coach-painting business.

        BERLIN PALACE; Copper Engraving Titled]: Prospect des Königl. Schlosses zu Berlin, wie sich selbiges gegen die Breite- und Brüder Strasse zu, praesentiret.

      Ca. 1780. Copper engraving ca. 19x31 cm (7 ½ x 12 ¼ in). Margins slightly trimmed, otherwise a very good bright engraving. An attractive copper engraved view of the Berlin Palace (Berliner Schloss), which was constructed in the 15-18th centuries, and served as a winter residence of the Prussian kings and German emperors. The view shows a busy square in front of the palace, full of pedestrians, carriages and street vendors; a glimpse of the Spree River is seen on the right. The view was apparently engraved by Johann David Schleuen, a prolific master, court engraver, known for his plans and views of Berlin. Berlin Palace was heavily damaged during the Allies' bombardment of Berlin in February 1945 and was demolished in 1950. Work on the palace reconstruction started in 2013; the completion is expected in 2018-2019.

        Etat présent des Indes Hollandaises, contenant une Peintre vraie et Fidelle du Gouvernement, de l'Administration, et la Conduite des Hollandais dans les Indes-Orientales

      Batavia (but Amsterdam?): n.p., circa, 1780. Octavo, 96pp., booksellers label to inner front cover, engraved vignette on the title; uncut in contemporary patterned wrappers fashioned from a booksellers catalogue, handwritten title-label to upper cover, spine repaired, title page and A2 neatly remounted, very good. A remarkable eighteenth century pamphlet detailing the political, economic and military conditions in the Dutch East Indies. Although anonymous, the work was written by an evidently well-informed author who provides sensitive strategic insights into the weakness of Dutch interests in the region, stressing their vulnerability to British and French aggression.Translated from a simultaneously issued Dutch edition (Nederlandisch India), the report was written either shortly before or at the beginning of the Fourth Anglo-Dutch War (1780-1784). The unknown author's frank and candid discussion of the weaknesses of the VOC generally and Batavia particularly, has led to much speculation about the intentions of the work. 'The economy was precarious, persons in both Europe and Southeast Asia were Jekyll and Hyde. There were those who tried to warn of VOC troubles but, when corruption reaches the highest places and when statistical cooperation can be secured between production and sales, what to do! The Heeren XVII knew less than they should have known about affairs abroad. They "regulated" to a degree only, whereas the truth of minimal salaried men bringing fabulous fortunes home... was easily and constantly very visible in Asia to anybody who looked. This author was writing from a position of prominence; he too had money; he was equally fluent in Dutch and French: he tried to warn. Where did he print? And - what was his name?' (Smith Diehl, Printers and Printing in the East Indies to 1850: Batavia, 1990, p.151-152).The susceptibility of Batavia to a British or French attack is a central concern and in compelling detail the author outlines the weakness of the various garrisons defending the VOC administrative capital. '[Batavia] un château qui tombe entièrement en ruine... J'oserais assurer que trois ou quatre vaisseaux Anglais, Français ou de route autre nation, emporteraient Batavia dans deux ou trois jours.' It is unclear then why the report was immediately rendered into French (as well as English), but these translations did raise the hackles of contemporary commentators in London particularly: was the work in fact some sort of ruse de guerre?The volume is bound in a bookseller's catalogue (from which we can suppose a publishing date sometime around 1780) which has been overprinted in red ink in a striking diamond pattern. The catalogue likely belonged to Geneva bookseller Jean François Bassompierre, whose ticket is pasted down on the inside cover. The title page notes printing in Batavia, although Landwehr suggests very plausibly that it may in fact be Amsterdam.

      New York, 1780. unbound. 4 pages, each two-page spread measuring 9 x 14.5 inches, New York, June 27, 1780. Fine content espionage war-date letter addressed to "Esteemed Friend," discussing the breakdown in diplomatic relations between Great Britain and France with a mention of Butler's Rangers and other intelligence. In part: "...At the Court of St. James, the 17th of April 1780 the King's majesty in council...since the commencement of the war in which Great Britain is the unprovoked aggression of France and Spain, repeated memorials have been presented by His Majesty's ambassador to the States General of the United Provinces...the above is copied from a paper enclosed to Franklin by your bother who says a convoy was expected to be appointed in a few days from the sailing of this packet. It appears that no fleet has sailed from Brest nor any apprehension of one here..." Robinson (who is mistaken in his assumption) is referring to the anticipated French fleet which would carry the force of Rochambeau' to Newport. Very good(+) condition. William Robinson was the son of prominent colonel and spy Beverly Robinson.

        Storia dell'America. Traduzione dall'Inglese.

      per Francesco Pieraccini,, in Pisa, 1780 - 2 volumi in-4° grande (325x230mm), pp. XXXI, 572, (4) con errata finale; (4), 660, (4) con errata finale; solida legatura coeva m. pergamena con titolo e fregi in oro su tasselli in pelle arancio ai dorsi. Piatti cartonati. Al primo vol., una carta del Sud America ripiegata, un ritratto del Robertson all'antiporta e una carta ripiegata del Golfo del Messico, con parte dei Caraibi e del Centro America, il tutto inciso su rame; al secondo vol., una "Carta dei Paesi sopra il Mare Meridionale da Panama a Guayquil" ripiegata, una carta del Messico anch'essa ripiegata e una tavola f.t. riproducente pittogrammi di popoli precolombiani, il tutto inciso su rame. Le carte sono disegnate da Tomhas Kitchin, Idrografo di Sua Maesta Britannica, ed incise dal lucchese Bartolomeo Nerici. Alcuni aloni ai piatti. Candido esemplare a pieni margini e in barbe, impresso su carta forte. Una delle prime edizioni italiane, splendidamente impressa, di una delle più cospicue opere storiografiche del Robertson, la "History of the Discovery and Settlement of America" (1777), forse il più importante studio settecentesco sulle vicende storiche del Centro e del Sud America. "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'" (Dictionary of National Biography). L'opera, fondata su un giudizio sostanzialmente positivo in merito alla colonizzazione spagnola dell'America Centrale e Meridionale, fu elogiata al suo apparire dalla Edinburgh Review come "abounding in the finest descriptions, the most pleasing delineations of character, the most dignified and judicious mixture of reflections. the full flow of his narration. will render his works immortal in the hands of the bulk of mankind". Un giudizio entusiastico fu espresso anche da Walpole, sorpreso che un uomo come Robertson avesse potuto comporre "what all the world now allows to be the best modern history" e potesse scrivere "in the purest English and with as much seeming knowledge of men and courts as if he had passed all his life in important embassies." La ricca documentazione, spesso attinta a fonti prima inaccessibili, fu possibile anche grazie ad informazioni che pervennero al Robertson da Bougainville, da La Condamine, dal Governatore del Massachussets Hutchinson, nonché da regnanti come Maria Teresa e Caterina II di Russia. Il Robertson (Borthwick, Scozia, 1721-Grange House, Edimburgo, 1793), ministro presbiteriano e predicatore in gioventù, nel 1745 si aggregò ai volontari decisi ad impedire l'invasione e l'avvento al trono inglese di Charles Edward Stuart. Tra le sue opere, tutte fondate su serie ricerche archivistiche e su equilibrati giudizi, che per tono e spirito lo fecero considerare un David Hume della storiografia: "The History of the Reign of the Emperor Charles V", "Historical Disquisition concerning the Knowledge which the Ancients had of India", "View of the Progress of the Society in Europe from the Subversion of Roman Empire to the beginning of the sixteenth Century".
