        Prospectus Cathedralis ecclesiae Florentia.

      1780. Incisione in rame, coloritura originale d'epoca, 312x415. Le vedute ottiche edite dai Remondini a Bassano del Grappa verso il 1770-80, stampate per l'utilizzo nel Mondo Nuovo rappresentano a pieno merito la stampa popolare italiana: semplici nel tratto, colorate con poche tinte in maniera rapida e decisa, affascinano per la loro immediatezza e sono state oggetto di numerose mostre, raccolte e studi negli ultimi anni. Le vedute erano preparate per essere inserite nel Mondo Nuovo, dove i popolani potevano vederle illuminate e conoscere così le città del mondo. Bell'esemplare ben conservato e marginoso, anche se con aloni marginali.

        A Collection of the Most Approved Entertaining Stories, Calculated for the Instructions and Amusement of all the little Masters and Misses in the vast Empire. By Solomon Winlove, Esq. A New Edition. London, Printed for E. Newbery, by J. Cundee, n.d. [1780].

      - Paper covered boards with a delicate flower pattern. Slight damage at the lower part of the spine. The contents are in good shape. 7,5 x 11,5 cm, [6] 1-121 [3, cat. of little books published by E. Newbery] pp. Engraved title page of the story 'The Knights' and six woodcuts throughout the text. This rare 'new' edition contains seventeen stories that differ from fables to fairy tales. The first and second edition of this book were published in 1770. The stories are rewritten and brought together by Solomon Winlove. It is thought that Winlove is a pseudonym used by the Irish scholar and author Oliver Goldsmith (1730-1774). Goldsmith is better known as the writer of the novel The Vicar of Wakefield (1766) and the poem The Deserted Village (1771). As Winlove, the author mainly focussed on moral and instructional stories, for example in his version of the Holy Bible for children (1772) or The pleasing moralist (1798) . The 'new' edition of this beautifully written and composed book is very rare. B2363

        A tour in Ireland; with general observations on the present state of that Kingdom: made in the years 1776, 1777, and 1778. And brought down to the end of 1779.

      London: T. Cadell; and J. Dodsley. 1780. 4to., engraved frontispiece and engraved plate facing p.1 of text, (4) + xi + (5) + 384 + 168 + 4pp., contemporary half russia over marbled boards, rebacked to match, the spine gilt and lettered in the compartments. A very good copy indeed with the 19th century armorial bookplate of the Ruggles-Brise family at Spains Hall> near Finchingfield in Essex. First edition. Goldsmiths 11970. Kress B.340. 'By 1776 Young felt he needed a new field of interest, and he decided on a visit to Ireland, a project he had been thinking of for some time. Armed with letters of introduction, he travelled widely, returning home in October of that year ‘without a shilling' (Autobiography, 81–2). However, by the following summer he was able to return in the capacity of resident agent to Lord Kingsborough, with responsibility for supervising a huge estate at Michelstown to the north of Cork. He now gave up Bradmore Farm, but his new career proved to be short-lived. He was at Michelstown for only a year, although in that time he set on foot ambitious improvements to the estate. The cause of his leaving the post so quickly is obscure, but he returned to Bradfield on 1 January 1779 to work on his A Tour in Ireland> with an annuity of £72 a year in lieu of his arrears of salary. The book appeared in 1780, was well received at the time, and has since become a valuable source as one of the few accounts of conditions in Ireland at this time. Among other subjects Young had much to say on commercial policy and the activities of the Dublin Society; and in addition Young attacked the practice of subletting land to middlemen and made some interesting observations on the living conditions of the poor.'

        Histoire Philosophique Et Politique Des Etablissemens Et Du Commerce Des Europeens Dans Les Deux Indes. 5 Vols: 4 Text + Atlas

      Geneva: Jean-Leonard Pellet 1780 - 5 volumes. Jean-Leonard Pellet, 1780 printing. Contemporary full mottled calf, marbled edges and endpapers. 25 maps are of portions of North and South America and the Caribbean. A large part of the work is said to have been written by Diderot, and others. Taking a radical anti-imperialistic stance, the nineteen books that comprised the original work covered the history of European colonization of India, the East Indies, China, parts of Africa, and the Americas. Much of the success, and subsequent reputation, of the Histoire was based on its attacks on tyranny, slavery and colonial exploitation, and it quickly became one of the basic texts for the humanitarian movement. The book was condemned by the French parliament and church dignitaries, and Raynal was obliged to leave France. Bindings variously worn/robbed, few joints starting. Mostlylight toning throughout, occasional foxing and dampstain (usually marginal). Lacking tables. 49 double-page maps. Vol 1: xvi,741,[i] pp. 2 pencil notations to lowermargin of title.

        [NEW ZEALAND] Autograph letter signed by Robert Torrens, to Benjamin Hawes M.P., 1847

      Autograph letter signed by the political economist Robert Torrens (1780-1864). Single sheet, 180 x 105 mm. 7 Sloane Street, 1 April 1847; to Benjamin Hawes M.P. (under-secretary of state for the Colonies), explaining that enclosed is a copy of 'the scheme for Emigration devised by Mr. Edward Gibbon Wakefield and Mr. Godley. I beg to state that I have had no participation in this concoction.' Signed R. Torrens. Edward Gibbon Wakefield (1796-1862) had been instrumental in setting up the New Zealand Association (1837), later known as the New Zealand Company, which was intended to organise and oversee English colonisation of various settlements in New Zealand. Wakefield invited John Robert Godley (1814-1861) to lead the settlement of a new colony in New Zealand which was to follow the teachings of the Church of England, and to this end the Canterbury Association was formed in 1848 (the result of the scheme for emigration alluded to in this letter). Captain Joseph Thomas was chosen to negotiate a purchase of land from the New Zealand Company and the new settlement was named Christ Church. Godley arrived in April 1850 in order to prepare the site for the first settlers, who arrived at Lyttelton in a fleet of four ships in December of that year. Godley returned to England at the end of 1852, but his contribution to civic planning was crucial in this early period, and he is recognised as the founder of Canterbury. Robert Torrens had published in 1835 the work Colonization of South Australia and was the major force behind the structuring of the settlement of that colony. His ideas had, however, brought South Australia close to financial disaster by the early 1840s. Torrens and Edward Gibbon Wakefield were bitter opponents in the political arena, their views on emigration to the colonies differing markedly, as the wording of Torrens’ letter boldly illustrates. Pre-dating as it does the formation of the Canterbury Association, this manuscript document relates to the most embryonic phase of the foundation of Christchurch.

        A Representation of the Interview between Commodore Byron & the Patagonians

      An unsigned late-eighteenth-century watercolour of one of the most fascinating subjects in the history of eighteenth-century voyages: Commodore Byron's meeting with the supposed "giants" of Patagonia. The legend of the strikingly tall Patagonians has its origins in Magellan's voyage in the 1520s. According to Pigafetta's account, Magellan encountered a race of giants whom he referred to as "Patagons" because of their large feet. Hence the southern tip of South America came to be known as Patagonia. Further sixteenth-century reports of the giant Patagonians came from Francis Fletcher, the chaplain serving with Sir Francis Drake, and from Anthonie Knivet, who had sailed with Sir Thomas Cavendish, who claimed to have seen dead bodies in Patagonia measuring 'over twelve feet in length'. In the early-eighteenth century Captains Harrington and Carmen in 1704 both corroborated the story. The story gained popular currency after the return of Byron's ship Dolphin from her circumnavigation. While the ship lay in dock, a rumour leaked out that the crew had encountered a tribe of 'nine-foot giants' in Patagonia in 1764. The account of Byron's meeting with the giants first appeared in print on 9 May 1766 in the Gentleman's Magazine, and was followed by other newspaper reports. Byron's own account, with its well-known engraved frontispiece of European officers standing waist-high to enormous Patagonians, was published in 1766. As Bernard Smith points out, Byron did not have the luxury of an artist on board the Dolphin to record this meeting. Instead it was left to an artist in London to furnish the illustration from Byron's description of events: 'one of them, who afterwards appeared to be a Chief, came towards me: he was of a gigantic stature, and seemed to realize the tales of monsters in a human shape...'. Yet despite the presence of skilled artists and observers on the Endeavour voyage of 1764, which put the height of male Patagonians at between 'five feet eight inches to five feet ten inches', the myth persisted. This was in large part due to Hawkesworth's combined narrative of the voyages of Byron, Cook and others published in 1773, which concluded that the giants did indeed exist. An engraved plate depicting the "interview" with Byron shows the Patagonians towering head and shoulders above the Englishmen. This is an interesting contemporary watercolour version of the giants, based on the engraving from Hawkesworth. The popular myth of the Patagonians continued to loom large in the public imagination and as a topic for furious philosophical debate. It was emblematic of the excitement of discovery of the New World and its strange inhabitants. An extensive discussion of the Patagonian Giants myth by the late Helen Wallis appears in Gallagher, R., ed., Byron's Journal of his Circumnavigation 1764-1766, Hakluyt Society, 1964. For the Patagonian Giants question in general, see Helen Wallis's article "The Patagonian Giants", Appendix 1, 185-96, in Robert E. Gallagher (ed.), Byron's Journal of his Circumnavigation 1764-1766 (Hakluyt Society, 1964). A good summary of the literary aspects of the myth is to be found at Princeton University's Department of English site web.princeton.edu/sites/english/eng321/Patago.htm.
