        A Series of Adventures in the Course of a Voyage up the Red-Sea, on the Coasts of Arabia and Egypt; and of a route through the desarts of Thesbais, hither to unknown to the European traveler, in the year MDCCLXXVII in letters to a lady.

      London:: Printed for J. Dodsley, Pall-Mall, 1780.. 4to. xv, [1], 400, [2 blank] pp. Half-title, errata, 3 engraved plates (facing pp. 11, 49, 237), and 3 folding engraved maps (facing pp. 69, 291, 355); foxed throughout. Original gilt-stamped calf with black spine label; worn, upper joint reinforced with Kozo. Several ownership ink signatures of Bishop Norton, including on title. Very good. FIRST EDITION. The Critical Review reports regarding Irwin and this work, “The author … seems to be an active and spirited young man, of good sense and understanding, with a tender and benevolent heart, who has performed the disagreeable task allotted him by his masters, the East India Company, with great zeal and intrepidity; met with many hair-breadth scapes, and braved innumerable dangers amongst a set of unlettered, barbarous, and perfidious savages, though dangerous and uncultivated desarts, hitherto unknown to the European traveler.” – The Critical Review, v.49, 1780, ed. Tobias George Smollett, p. 405 [405-412]. ¶ The East India Company servant Eyles Irwin, born in Calcutta in 1751, was appointed to survey the Black Town in 1771 and “was made superintendent of the lands belonging to Madras ... In 1776 he became caught up in the political storm that overtook the governor of Madras, George Pigot, who was placed in confinement by members of his own council. Irwin supported Pigot, and in August he was suspended from the company's service. Early in 1777 he left India in order to seek redress in England. Irwin later published an account of his journey home, which was entitled ‘A series of adventures...' In this he displayed his classical education and described his experiences and observations during the journey, which lasted eleven months ... Irwin returned to India in 1780 as a senior merchant and his route was again overland, but this time via Aleppo, Baghdad, and the Persian Gulf” – ODNB. The author recounts his imprisonment in Yanbu, Arabia, and further voyage to Jeddah, as well as his adventures in Egypt, his journeys through the Peloponnese and Balkans as well as Persia. He includes an “Ode to the Persian Gulf”, which extols the beauties of Bahrain. - In 1802, Irwin produced a musical play, “The Bedouins, or Arabs of the Desert: a Comic Opera in Three Acts,” (1802), which played in Dublin for three nights. ¶ The second edition was also issued in 1780. A third edition, 1782, was expanded with an appendix. ¶ PROVENANCE: Signed “Isabella” and several signatures of “Bishop Norton, 1785”. Under Norton's signature is another notation “my grandfather …” ¶ Blackmer 865; Tobias George Smollett, The Critical review, or, Annals of Literature, Volume 49, 1780, pp. 405-412.

        [Magische[s] Buch, mit welchem man zehen Veränderungen machen kann ... Livre Magique, avec lequel on peut faire 10 Changemens]. [Germany, 1790/92]. Large 16mo (14.5 x 11 cm). A conjuror's magic flip book (or blow book) with tabs in 5 positions. With 14 full-page engravings of 7 subjects (6 of uniformed soldiers and 1 of tents), plus 5 repeats of each. With the original letterpress instructions in German and French on a single leaf tipped in. Coloured by a contemporary hand. In a contemporary decorated paper wrapper printed from woodblocks in green and ochre paste.

      Cf. Gumuchian 3843-3850 (examples from France, ca. 1780-1848); Kinderen lazen/Kinderen lezen 647, 663 & 668 (examples from France 1778 & Germany ca. 1850); Stafford & Terpak, Devices of wonder, pp. 252-255. A rare conjuror's "magic book" of uniformed muskateers and cavalry, also known as a flip book or blow book, from the reign of the Holy Roman Emperor Leopold II (1790-1792). Remarkably, even the original printed instructions, in German and French, are preserved. The instructions bear the drop-titles "Unterricht zu diesem Magischen Buch, mit welchem man zehen Veränderungen machen kann" and "Instruction pour ce Livre Magique, avec lequel on peut faire 10 Changemens". The conjuror holds the book by its spine in his left hand so that it faces the audience and flips through it with the thumb and fore-fingers of his right hand. He first does this using the lowest tabs and the book appears to be entirely blank. He then magically changes it (perhaps by blowing on it, tapping it, or saying magic words) and flips through it using the next tab. Now every page shows a Royal Prussian muskateer. He continues with the next tabs to reveal Imperial Russian muskateers, muskateers of the Holy Roman Empire and finally tents with flags. He then turns the book upside down and flips through in the same way. The book again first appears to be blank, then shows cavalry from Prussia, Russia and the Holy Roman Empire, and then the tents again. The Imperial muskateers have an "L" on their hats for the Holy Roman Emperor Leopold II, who reigned only from 1790 to 1792, and the other uniforms are also consistent with this date. Stafford & Terpak notes that no early English examples are known to survive and mentions no German ones, but notes that several Italian and French examples are known from the second half of the 18th century.In very good condition, with even the spine only slightly rubbed. A remarkably well-preserved conjuror's flip book, with even the separate printed instructions.

        Atlas et Description minéralogique de la France, Entrepris par ordre du Roi..

      32 fine folding engraved plates (of which five are finely hand-colored). xii, 212 pp., one leaf of errata (recto) & approbation (verso). Folio, cont. mottled sheep (some rubbing to extremities), spine gilt, red & green morocco lettering pieces on spine. Paris: Didot l'ainé et al., 1780. First edition, and a fine copy, of the great series of maps which constitute the first geological atlas, compiled by Guettard and his disciple Lavoisier (with the later assistance of Monnet). "These maps, so far as I know, were the first ever constructed to express the superficial distribution of minerals and rocks. The gifted Frenchman [Guettard] who produced them is thus the father of all the national Geological Surveys which have been instituted."-Geikie, The Founders of Geology, p. 115-(& see the entire chapter which is devoted to Guettard and his geological achievements). In 1766 Henri Bertin, Minister and Secretary of State in charge of mining, commissioned a geological survey of France to be compiled by Guettard and his protégé, the young Antoine Laurent Lavoisier. Guettard and Lavoisier had begun collecting field notes for the project as early as 1763, and in 1767 they embarked on a geological tour of the east of France. When Lavoisier returned to Paris he assumed most of the responsibility for supervising the production of the geological maps. By 1770 he and Guettard had overseen the completion of sixteen plates, and by 1777 they had partially completed an almost equal number. According to Lavoisier's own statement, all plates dated 1766 and 1767 were prepared with his assistance. The atlas was to have contained 230 maps in all, but this total was never reached. "Presently the retirement of Guettard and political intrigues intervened, and the project was handed over to Monnet, inspector general of mines, for completion. Monnet added 16 more plates and a long text, publishing the whole as a first part of the atlas. It was issued under the joint authorship of Guettard and Monnet. All of Lavoisier's contributions were ignored, except for the first sixteen plates; the wealth of information that had been gathered was used without his permission. The feature of showing levels of geological strata was due to Lavoisier's initiative, a point Monnet chose to withhold. The former, angered by this treatment, protested bitterly, but to no avail. Monnet became his obstinate enemy, continuing to attack the new chemistry even after Lavoisier's execution… "No further instalments of the mineralogical atlas ever appeared."-Duveen & Klickstein, p. 238 (& see their Supplement, pp. 129-32, which contains additional information regarding the publication history). Fine copy and now quite rare. The green morocco lettering piece on the spine is lettered "I. Partie." Bookplates of E. Bucaille and Frederic Cheron. ❧ D.S.B., V, pp. 577-79.

(Beilagen), VIII, 434 S., IV, 178 S. (Beilagen). Papbände der Zeit. - Carl Johann Joachim Friedrich Edler Herr und Freiherr von Plotho (1780 - 1820), königlich-preußischer Oberstleutnant der Infanterie sowie Militärhistoriker und Schriftsteller. In seinem hier vorliegenden vierteiligen Hauptwerk beschreibt er die Befreiungskriege unter militärischen Gesichtspunkten in allen Einzelheiten, so dass sich die täglichen Truppenbewegungen nachverfolgen lassen. Seine Beilagen enthalten wertvolles familienkundliches Material, aber auch formationsgeschichtliche Details. Da die letzte gedruckte Rangliste der preußischen Armee schon 1806 veröffentlicht wurde, gibt das Werk auch Aufschluss über das neue Offizierskorps, das durch die Heeresreform geschaffen wurde (Einführung des Krümpersystems und die Gründung der Landwehr durch Scharnhorst und Gneisenau). Einbände berieben und bestoßen. Innen stellenweise stockfleckig doch wohlerhalten.

        [Magische[s] Buch, mit welchem man zehen Veränderungen machen kann ... Livre Magique, avec lequel on peut faire 10 Changemens]. [Germany, 1790/92]. Large 16mo (14.5 x 11 cm). A conjuror's magic flip book (or blow book) with tabs in 5 positions. With 14 full-page engravings of 7 subjects (6 of uniformed soldiers and 1 of tents), plus 5 repeats of each. With the original letterpress instructions in German and French on a single leaf tipped in. Coloured by a contemporary hand. In a contemporary decorated paper wrapper printed from woodblocks in green and ochre paste.

      Cf. Gumuchian 3843-3850 (examples from France, ca. 1780-1848); Kinderen lazen/Kinderen lezen 647, 663 & 668 (examples from France 1778 & Germany ca. 1850); Stafford & Terpak, Devices of wonder, pp. 252-255. A rare conjuror's "magic book" of uniformed muskateers and cavalry, also known as a flip book or blow book, from the reign of the Holy Roman Emperor Leopold II (1790-1792). Remarkably, even the original printed instructions, in German and French, are preserved. The instructions bear the drop-titles "Unterricht zu diesem Magischen Buch, mit welchem man zehen Veränderungen machen kann" and "Instruction pour ce Livre Magique, avec lequel on peut faire 10 Changemens". The conjuror holds the book by its spine in his left hand so that it faces the audience and flips through it with the thumb and fore-fingers of his right hand. He first does this using the lowest tabs and the book appears to be entirely blank. He then magically changes it (perhaps by blowing on it, tapping it, or saying magic words) and flips through it using the next tab. Now every page shows a Royal Prussian muskateer. He continues with the next tabs to reveal Imperial Russian muskateers, muskateers of the Holy Roman Empire and finally tents with flags. He then turns the book upside down and flips through in the same way. The book again first appears to be blank, then shows cavalry from Prussia, Russia and the Holy Roman Empire, and then the tents again. The Imperial muskateers have an "L" on their hats for the Holy Roman Emperor Leopold II, who reigned only from 1790 to 1792, and the other uniforms are also consistent with this date. Stafford & Terpak notes that no early English examples are known to survive and mentions no German ones, but notes that several Italian and French examples are known from the second half of the 18th century.In very good condition, with even the spine only slightly rubbed. A remarkably well-preserved conjuror's flip book, with even the separate printed instructions.

        Love for Klubben, oprettet i November 1775.

      1780 1780 - Kbhvn.: Möller 1780. 88 paginerede sider + 4 blanke blade. Kapitæler og hjørner let stødte ellers rent og velholdt eksemplar med rødt snit indbundet i smukt samtidigt marmoreret helskind med farvet titelfelt og rig rygforgyldning. * Drejers Klub var en af de tidligste og mest ansete af de mange københavnske klubber, stiftet d. 26. nov. 1775. Klubben havde mange prominente medlemmer, både fra erhvervslivet og den litterære elite, og den blev med tiden den største klub i København.Som udgangspunkt var klubben litterært orienteret, men havde også et vist politisk engagement op til 1780. I opposition til Norske Selskabs dyrkelse af den franske klassicisme orienterede Drejers Klub sig i 1770’erne mod den mere følsomme, tyskinspirerede litteratur. Ligesom Norske Selskab arbejdede Drejers Klub på at opbygge et bibliotek med bøger, aviser og tidsskrifter til brug for klubbens medlemmer. Den udgav et tidsskrift kaldet Nyeste kiøbenhavnske Efterretninger om lærde Sager, men da Knud Lyne Rahbek blev optaget og senere formand for klubben, blev det i højere grad hans tidsskrift Minerva, der blev anvendt som klubbens officielle talerør.Klubben havde flere intellektuelle og kunstnere blandt sine medlemmer heriblandt: politimester O.H. Hvidberg (1771-1822), viceprovst A. Krag Holm (1767-1851), forfatter Chr. Olufsen (1763-1827), forfatter C. Pram (1756-1821), nationaløkonom S.O. Wolff (1796-1859), apoteker Jens Peter Groth (1783-1832), Knud Lyne Rahbek (1760-1830), professor L.C. Sander (1756-1819) og den norske digter Jonas Rein (1760-1821). [Bakkehussamlingen].

        Tabulae regni animalis, omnes VI classes animalium comprehendentes. Tabellen des Thierreichs. Regni animalis classis II Avium ordines I-VI.

      - Augsburg, Kaiserlich Franzische Akademische Handlung [1780-1786]. Folio (52 x 36 cm). 24 contemporary hand-coloured copper engravings and 24 black & white copper engravings. Beautiful, contemporary style, pastiche binding, half calf over paper boards. Richly gilt decorated spine with seven raised bands; gilt ornaments and title.l Extremely rare, especially in this double suite, including contemporarily hand-coloured plates. This is the complete set of ornithological plates. These bird plates bear the printed signature of Gottlieb Friedrich Riedel in the margin. He was born in 1724 in Dresden, Germany and died in 1784 in Augsburg, Germany. He was a well-respected and accomplished porcelain painter and the teacher of Friedrich Kirschner in the Ludwigsburg-based porcelain factory, where he worked from 1770 as a painter of birds, insects and flowers. Friedrich Kirschner was born in about 1748 in Bayreuth, Germany, and died in Augsburg, Germany, in 1788. Complete copies of this work are extremely rare; globally, there is only one known copy in the UB in Augsburg. Other libraries - such as the UB Tübingen, Frankfurt, Staatsbibliothek München, UB Strasbourg, UB Basel, Amsterdam, ÖNB, Library of the British Museum (NH) and the French National Library - only possess incomplete copies. Coloured copies are almost unheard of: the fish and amphibian section of the coloured version has only come to auction once, in 1964; the coloured birds, apparently, have never been auctioned. No known coloured sections exist in any institutional library. Some staining or soiling to plate margins and two marginal paper restorations. The plates with a nice, strong impression and contemporary colouring very well-executed and vivid.

      - Amsterdam, Jan Christiaan Sepp, [1780]-1788. Two parts in one. Large 4to (30.5 x 24.0 cm). pp. [ii], 124, with hand-coloured engraved frontispiece and 29 hand-coloured engraved plates. [AND] 172 pp., with hand-coloured engraved frontispiece and 41 hand-coloured engraved plates. Contemporary half calf over speckled boards. Spine with five raised bands, compartments with gilt lines and lettering.l A fine set of these beautifully illustrated entomological works on Hemiptera which are nearly always found bound together. Our "set" contains the general title for both works dated 1780. The work describes the Cicadidae and true bugs of all parts of the world, many from Surinam, the Cape Province, and the Coromandel coast. Caspar Stoll was the first entomologist to devote himself almost entirely to Hemiptera. The two frontispieces are particularly attractive and show a wreath of flowers with insects. Caspar Stoll was born in Hessen-Kassel between 1725 and 1730 and lived in The Hague and later in Amsterdam. William V of Orange-Nassau was the godfather of two of his children. He was "commies ter Admiraliteit" at Amsterdam and published several works on entomology. Jan Christiaan Sepp (1739-1811) was a bookseller and publisher and his publishing house produced some of the finest Dutch natural history colour-plate books of the 18th century. Apart from that he was an entomologist, artist and engraver and wrote, with his father, a large work on Dutch insects, illustrated by himself. He also illustrated the above two works. The first work depicts 173 insects on 29 plates and the second volume depicts 298 insects on 41 plates. The text is in Dutch and French. Cicaden plate XII bound before XI. Provenance: the tiny bookplate of the Municher entomologist Hans W. Taeuber on the front pastedown. Hagen II, p. 199; Horn-Schenkling, 21554; Landwehr 191; Nissen ZBI, 3999 and 4000.
