SERVAN, Joseph.]
Dans le pays de la liberté [Neuchâtel:] n. p., 1780. Octavo (190 x 115 mm). Contemporary quarter brown calf, light green morocco label, smooth spine elaborately decorated in gilt with central floral tools, pink boards, all edges red, 2 pp. errata slip at rear.f Extremities a little rubbed, tiny chip to head of spine, small. An excellent copy. Woodcut head- and tailpieces, tables in the text. First edition of the author's advocacy of universal and compulsory conscription as the only certain way to unite citizens and the army. "A career officer since the 1760s, [Joseph Servan (1741-1808)] won notoriety in 1780 with the publication of Le Soldat citoyen, a long and detailed plan for reforming the army. Its central theme foreshadowed the Revolution by urging universal conscription in a nation that would regard its soldiers as citizens" (Historical Dictionary of the French Revolution 1789-1799, Vol. 2, p. 899). Servan upheld his republican views throughout his eventful military and political career. His most notable tenure in office was as minister of war under the constitutional monarchy of 1791-2, a brief appointment during which he dissolved the king's Garde du Corps and had the eighth verse of the Marseillaise removed for being too religious. Johann Samuel Ersch attributed Le Soldat Citoyen to general and military writer Jacques-Antoine-Hyppolyte de Guibert (1743-1790).

Toutes les planches sont visibles avec le lien photos ci dessous: Description en photos ici: https://photos.app.goo.gl/chrgHllqeqVMfqL13 Les 21 premiers volumes de cet ouvrage ont été rédigés par La Harpe, d'après la volumineuse compilation Histoire des Voyages de l'abbé Prévost, publiée de 1747 à 1780. L'auteur y a réuni les faits essentiels des voyages les plus fameux depuis les premières découvertes jusqu'à celles de la fin du dix-huitième siècle. La Harpe a divisé son abrégé en cinq parties : les voyages d'Afrique, ceux d'Asie, ceux d'Amérique, ceux vers les pôles et les voyages autour du monde, puis a ajouté les voyages modernes dont ceux du capitaine Cook (voyages de Dampier, Carteret, Kaempfer, Bernier, Bruce, Norden, Anson, Bougainville, etc. regroupant une multitude de renseignements sur l'histoire, les moeurs et les coutumes des habitants des continents explorés). L'édition a été reçue très favorablement par le public qui n'avait généralement pas la patience de lire un recueil complet. L'ouvrage sera continué par Delpuech de Comeiras (9 volumes de suppléments publiés entre 1800 et 1801).

Joseph Edmondson
London: J. Dodsley, 1780. 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.
