        Poems on Various Subjects; Selected to Enforce the Practice of Virtue. And with a View to Comprise in One Volume the Beauties of English Poetry

      London: Printed for the Editor, and J. Wallis, at Yorick's Head, Ludgate Street, 1780. First edition of this popular miscellany of English verse, reprinted well into the nineteenth century, featuring "such poems as have been universally esteemed the first ornaments of our language, and admired, not only for purity of sentiment, but for beauty and harmony of numbers." Highlights include poems by Milton (including L'Allegro and Il Penseroso) and Thomson (drawn from The Seasons), as well as the less sardonic works of Pope. A friend of Samuel Johnson and Joshua Reynolds, editor Thomas Tomkins was a writing-master by trade, the author of two engraved calligraphic copy-books, employed in "producing unique presentation certificates and decorative transcripts of important texts and public addresses" for the corporation of London (DNB). In this first edition of Poems on Various Subjects, Tomkins has penned an elaborate presentation to his friend, the Anglo-Jewish merchant David Alves Rebello (1741-1796), displaying his command of a range of calligraphic scripts: "PRESENTED / By the Editor to his much / Esteemed Friend / David Alves Rebello Esq. / as a small / TESTIMONY / of the / Respect due to his judicious / TASTE / In collecting the Beauties of Nature / And of his / Encouragement / IN / Promoting the Liberal / ARTS." A near-fine copy of an influential anthology, with a flamboyant editorial presentation. Twelvemo, full contemporary calf, gilt-tooled geometric and floral border to boards, raised bands, spine compartments decorated in gilt, red morocco spine label lettered in gilt, gilt dentelles, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. Bound with half-title, but without the leaf of publisher's ads. Elaborate calligraphic presentation from editor Tomkins to David Alves Rebello, penned in red and black ink on an early binder's blank; Rebello's engraved pictorial bookplates to preliminary and concluding blanks; later monogram stamps to first few blanks. Light shelfwear to binding, expert repair to joints and corners.

        INDIAN OCEAN ISLANDS – MAURITIUS / RÉUNION / SEYCHELLES, ETC.: A CHART OF THE ISLANDS IN THE MIDDLE PART OF THE INDIAN OCEAN. LONDON, 1780

      London, . 1780 - Copper engraving on thick paper (Good, strong engraving impression and wide original margins, a few small points of discoloration, centerfold entirely split but rejoined from verso with archival tape, very faint and neat manuscript additions in pencil, charting a course from Mauritius northwards towards India), sheet: 64 x 92 cm (25 x 36 inches); platemark: 50 x 75 cm (17 x 29.5 inches). An extremely rare sea chart of the middle of the Indian Ocean, featuring Northeast Madagascar, Mauritius, Réunion, the Seychelles, as well as many other islands and nautical features, made during a great era of piracy and Anglo-French naval rivalry in the region, issued by the boutique London chartmakers of Henry Gregory & Son. This beautifully engraved sea chart embraces a great expanse of the Indian Ocean within a triangle extending from Northeast Madagascar up to the Seychelles, and then over to the southern tip of the Maldives, in between containing the Mascarene Islands, notably Mauritius and Réunion. Overall, the placement of the islands and nautical features are impressively accurate for the time, accounting for the abstraction created by the projection on which is noted "the distances of places are measured as in a Mercator's Chart." The chart was issued in 1780, during a period in which this expanse of sea and islands occupied a critical role in global geo-politics. This part of the Indian Ocean was the scene of an epic naval contest between Britain and France, as part of the American Revolutionary War (1775-83), a worldwide conflict known regionally as the Anglo-Maratha War (1775-82). It also lay upon one of the world’s prime shipping routes, connecting Europe with Asia and, as such, was one of the great haunts for pirates. Although European navies had suppressed much of the piracy over the decades previous, it was still not unusual for a merchant ship on the India trade to be relieved of its precious cargo. Northeastern Madagascar appears in the lower-left of the chart, including ‘I. St. Mary’ (Île Sainte-Marie, Malagasy: Nosi Boraha), which in the late 17th and early 18th Centuries had been the world’s leading pirate base. Since then, its fine natural harbour remained of interest to mariners as a re-victualling base, watched with caution by European naval powers, lest it, once again, became a haunt for corsairs. To the southeast are the Mascarene Islands, most importantly ‘Bourbon I.’ (Réunion) and Mauritius, important stopovers for shipping between Europe and Asia. Réunion was settled by the French East India Company in 1665, while Mauritius had come under the Company’s auspices in 1715. By the time that this chart was issued, both islands had become home to globally important sugar economies. France spent vast resources protecting the islands from being taken by Britain’s Royal Navy. Both islands would eventually be seized by Britain in 1810 (with Réunion being returned to France; while Mauritius was permanently retained by Britain).

In a cardboard case, paper label on spine. First London edition, after the very rare New York printing of 1777 (most copies of that edition were destroyed by a New York mob) and another of 1780.

The Earl was an Irish peer, and so was sitting in the English House of Commons at the time of publication. Galloway, former Loyalist "Superintendent" of Philadelphia during the British occupation of 1777-78, herein replies to Gen. Howe's OBSERVATIONS..., preaching to him on how he could have won the war. In spite of its combative tone, the pamphlet does provide important details on the Revolution in 1777-78, the nature of the countryside, etc. Galloway attacks Howe's defense that he was forced to fight in forests by stating that at least two-thirds and in many places five-sixths of the area in question was cleared farmland. The appendix includes a letter from Henry Laurens describing the want of supplies and food by the American army at Valley Forge. HOWES G48, "aa." AMERICAN CONTROVERSY 80-35a. SABIN 26443.

        'O-Tahiti' [in] Göttingisches Magazin der Wissenschaft und Litteratur.

      Göttingen: Johann Christian Dieterich, 1780. Small octavo, a handsome copy in the original decorative wrappers (thus retaining the publisher's prospectus on the front and rear endpapers), untrimmed. A fine copy and now rare: known to O'Reilly & Reitman's exhaustive bibliography as the earliest full publication regarding the Spanish voyages to Tahiti in the 1770s. This is the first issue of the first volume of the Göttingisches Magazin, the important scientific periodical edited by Georg Forster and Georg Lichtenberg. Included here is Georg Forster's notable contribution on Tahiti, a 36-page essay on the Spanish voyages to Tahiti in the 1770s.This essay is revelatory concerning the continuing interest and expertise of the Forsters regarding the Pacific, beginning as it does with Georg's discussion of how his father had received, in Summer 1778, a Spanish manuscript regarding Tahiti from the Director of the King's Botanical Gardens in Madrid, Don Casimir Gomez Ortega. This would have been of consuming interest to both Forsters, who had spent many months at Tahiti during Cook's second voyage, and who had speculated at length in their printed accounts about reports of Spanish sailors visiting the region between Cook's first and second visits. The work includes some 87 scholarly notes by Forster on the Spanish observations on Tahiti.Such an early report of Spanish activity in the region, which includes Forster's particular notice of the voyages of Don Juan de Langara y Huarte and Don Domingo Buenechea, commanders of two of the three Spanish voyages to the region in the 1770s, is an attractive and conspicuously early reference to Tahiti. Indeed, as O'Reilly & Reitman's bibliography attests, there was almost no contemporary work on the Spanish visits, despite them being a matter of some concern for the British at the time. Neatly rebacked, wrappers professionally strengthened.

        Representation of the New Shaving Machine, whereby a number of persons may be done at the same time with expedition ease and safety. Manufactured & sold by D. Merry & Son, Birmingham.

      (Birmingham.) [c.1780?] Uncoloured etching, illustration above & beneath 17 & 3 lines of text respectively; a few marginal tears & creases not affecting image, a few spots. 24 x 38cm with good margins.Copac records the Wellcome only; OCLC adds Yale & the Morgan Library; George (BM Satires) notes the existence of this print but does not record a copy at the BM. A wonderfully bizarre contraption, with a detailed key. On the back right wall is a portrait of Tim Bobbin, pseudonym of the Rochdale caricaturist and self-styled 'Lancashire Hogarth', after a known self-portrait by Collier. The print appears to be a satire on industrialisation and mechanisation. Six men sit side by side in anticipation of being shaved simultaneously by the 'New Shaving Machine'. The notice 'To the Public' announces: 'Whereas the wonderful powers of this useful Machine are yet but little known and even doubted by those who have not seen it, the Inventor has for their satisfaction prefixed a Plate representing his Shaving and Dressing Room with six Customers sitting. Pledges himself that his Machine will be found to do its work in the most safe, smooth and efficacious manner, with three scrapes or movements, and that those who shall have once tried it will no longer entertain any doubts on the subject ...'

        Histoire philosophique et politique des établissemens et du commerce des Européens dans les deux Indes

      Third and final edition, the best and most complete to the text, bringing the number of volumes published until 10 against 7. The work appeared in a luxurious version, in 4 (some prints in-8 were also thicker paper and higher quality, it does ours) and a more modest version. Ten headpieces by Moreau Young whose portrait of Raynal Volume 1 by Cochin regravés by Lardy.Demi Havana contemporary sheepskin in small corners. back smooth decorated with gilded nets, part of title in red morocco, and volume number in black leather. Scattered spots.Published for the first time in 1771 in 7 volumes, the Philosophical History of the Indies was a huge success throughout Europe and America; its success is mainly due to the severe criticism of colonialism, exploitation, slavery and mercantilism. He was sentenced to be removed by order of the Council of 19 December 1779 and sentenced to the fire by decree of the Parliament of Paris on 25 May 1781. Book emblem of the Enlightenment, posing as a history of international trade, The work is before any violent rant against European colonialism and arrogance, slavery and enslavement of peoples, against the church which assists in European hypocrisy. We now know that Diderot worked from the first edition and has overseen the organization of texts, he perfected in the third edition (adding many texts from his pen and that of other employees, such Holbach), transforming the initial work in a real war machine of the party philosophers. The book is also not qu'accusations, instead it seeks and craves even peaceful solutions, agreements between nations. The story does not deceived because it lives in Raynal a promoter of the French Revolution.

        Unterricht, theoretisch -praktischer, im Schach- spiele, von einer Gesellschaft von Liebhabern

      Berlin: Friedrich Nicolai, 1780. B[i-viii]+430 pages small octavo (7" x 4 1/2") bound in contemporary half leather with marbled boards. Foreword by Friedrich Nicolai, Translated by K F Trost. First published in French (Paris) in 1775 as Traite Theorique et Pratique du Jeu des Eches. From the library of Borje Borjesson. Not in Bibliotheca van der Linde-Niemeijeriana First German edition.Le Traite des Amateurs is a chess treatise composed, by a "Society of Amateurs" contemporaries of Philidor; who all frequented the Cafe de la Regence, in Paris. Of these, the strongest players were Bernard, Carlier, Leger, and Verdoni. Philidor, constantly resident in London, took no part in writing the "Traite des Amateurs;" which in fact embodies many criticisms and comments upon his earlier printed book. Only four masters of the group, considered the strongest, are known: Bernard, Carlier, Leger and Verdoni. A part, partially, from Verdoni, who is the only one of the Amateurs with his own entry in the Oxford Companion to Chess, not very much is known about the life of these masters. Their first names, places and dates of birth or deaths (the year of death of Verdoni, tough, is known) are for instance unknown. They, however, appear periodically in the chess literature of the time and, consequently, it is possible to provide some details on their lives and styles. Concerning their games, several Verdoni's games are known, while only one game of Bernard and Carlier playing together and winning against Philidor, who gives to them the advantage of Pawn and Move, survived. Verdoni, Bernard, Carlier and Leger, although they didn't even approach Philidor's level, were considered the best in the world in the years following death of Philidor and, directly or indirectly (since Verdoni after the publication of Traite moved to London), have disputed each other the scepter of Philidor's successor. There are of course not records of their games and, consequently, it would be impossible for us to assess the relative strength of these player. Deschapelles, however, reported that Philidor classed Legalle as a player on even terms, Verdoni as one to receive pawn for the move, Bernard and Carlier as Pawn and move players. Bernard was probably the best chess player at the Cafe de la Regence around the end of the 18th century or at least until the arrival of Alexandre Deschapelles to the world chess scene in 1798 according to George Walker.(Murray)Condition:Spine ends rubbed, small crack at head and heal hinges, corners rubbed, book plate of Borje Borjesson on front paste down, old previous owner's neat name on title else about very good.

We know that the Cardinal de Rohan library (infamous!) It was twins on the way back iron.Binding full fair calf ice period. Back smooth decorated. Part of title and volume number in brown leather. 3 slashes on upper cover of Volume II without consequence. Nice copy.The sun knight is a translation of the Spanish novel of chivalry Diego Orthunez of Calahorra, the first part was published in 1555, the suites appeared later, second and third parts are not of the author. Interesting preface to the Marquis de Paulmy, celèbre medievalist at the time, which asserts that the cycle of Amadis is a continuation of the knight of the sun. A table of contents allows to find the chronology of each character. The Marquis de Paulmy and his sidekick Contant d'Orville did not simply translate the knight of the sun, they compiled not only the result of the History of the knight soelil, but also the last 21 novels Amadis, and romance novels by Duverdier, allowing to follow the fate of all the characters of the Spanish romantic chivalry two books. Seems the strangest musical scores introduction and philidor songs and celebrating Grétry chivalry, testimony to the perception of the eighteenth of a romantic chivalry.

        A New and Accurate Map of North Carolina and Part of South Carolina with the Field Battle between Earl Cornwallis and General Gates.

      [Political Magazine/John Bew],, 1780. [London], [Political Magazine/John Bew], c.1780. Original copper engraved Map. 38 cm wide x 27.5 cm high. Mounted on paper. Very good condition with no signs of foxing. From a wonderful collection of Maps from an old english library (South Shields) - with two tiny library stamps to the mounting paper (The stamps are NOT on the map). This scarce map of the Carolinas, published during the American Revolution, is apparently based on Henry Mouzon's 1778 foundation map of the region. It is filled with topographical notes and the locations of important plantations, court houses, meeting houses, swamps, and chapels. This map illustrates the region involved in the southern theater of the war. After General Clinton seized Charleston in May of 1780, the British began a campaign into the Carolinas in pursuit of the remnants of the Continental Army. The map illustrates the Battle of Camden in August, 1780, where the American General Gates was defeated by British General Cornwallis. (Source: Old World Auctions)
