DEAN, Henry
1781. Woodcut frontis. 132 (incl. frontis.), iv pp. 12mo, fine modern black morocco, elaborately panelled in gilt, flat spine & inner dentelles gilt, a.e.g. London: Printed for J. Bew, 1781. "Eighth edition, corrected, and improved with an entire new set of cutts." First published in 1722, this is the most popular English conjuring book of the 18th century; more than twenty printings have been identified, and no doubt others have failed to survive. The text is heavily dependent on Reginald Scot's Discovery of Witchcraft (1584), and on subsequent derivative works, but the language has of course been adapted for a more modern readership. The author's identity has long remained something of a mystery, but an advertisement at the end of the fourth edition, published in the 1750's, suggests that Henry Dean may have been a dealer in magical apparatus, with a bookshop "near the Watch House on Little-Tower Hill, Postern Row." The very appealing 36 woodcut illustrations and diagrams depict playing cards, cups and balls, and other sorts of conjuring apparatus, as well as a number of effects, such as "how to eat fire, and to blow it up in your mouth with a pair of bellows." The frontispiece is in two compartments, each of which is repeated in the text. The upper panel shows "How to cut a man's head off and to put the head into a platter, a yard from his body." The lower portion is a cut used to illustrate "To cut a glass, a famous invention." This is the first of two editions of Dean's book to be published by John Bew, a bookseller who established his business i … [Click Below for Full Description]

En 1770 ya había conseguido el grado de comandante de Armas de Nueva Vizcaya y Sonora, provincias del norte de Nueva España, actualmente Nuevo México. En 1772, en compañía de su tío José de Gálvez vuelve a la Península Ibérica y es destinado a Pau (Francia) con el regimiento de Cantabria, donde aprende a hablar francés, que le sería muy útil después, en la Luisiana. Destinado a Sevilla en 1775, participa en la desastrosa expedición contra Argel de 1775 capitaneada por Alejandro O'Reilly donde, durante la conquista del fuerte que defendía la ciudad, es gravemente herido de nuevo. Ese mismo año consigue el ascenso a teniente coronel y llega a ser profesor en la Academia de Ávila. En 1776 es des … [Click Below for Full Description]

Neuchatel, De l'imprimerie de Samuel Fauche, 1781. Edition publiée à Neufchâtel à la suite de l'originale de Berlin (1780). "Depuis quelques années, Frédéric s'est détourné de la France pour des raisons tant politiques que culturelles. Il considère que le royaume est entré dans une phase de décadence. Publié fin 1780, cet essai, résultat de discussions avec le philosophe Grave, Hertzberg et d'autres proches, fait le point sur ses rapports avec les langues françaises et allemandes: la Prusse a encore besoin du français, parce que c'est toujours et pour longtemps la langue universelle, mais la pérennité de cette situation lui paraît illusoire. Parallèlement, la langue et la culture allemande sont en grands progrès et il prévoit ce jour, plus très lointain, où l'allemand aura pour le moins un rang égal à celui du français" (François Labbe).(Neuchâtel (ex-STN) Bibliography, 1781, Rero, R215965160).Petit accroc à la coiffe supérieure.Joli exemplaire, très frais, très bien relié à l'époque.

ARAGÃO, Antonio Barnabe d'Elescano Barreto e
Lisbon: Silva Godinho, 1781. First edition, second issue, of the first bibliography of Portuguese law. Though this is the true first edition recorded by Innocêncio, a prior issue, dated 1780, exists, which is distinguished by three instead of five preliminary leaves. The author chose to include, in both issues, material deemed offensive to the Real Mesa Censória, the central body established in Portugal in 1768 to govern the moral content of books and papers, and anyone who purchased copies of either book was obliged to return them or face consequences. Aragão, who received his bachelor's in law from the University of Coimbra, was the author of three other books, including a history of natural jurisprudence in 1771. The present work, The Modern Demetrius, his final and greatest, was years in preparation, and was the last word on Portuguese legal bibliography for nearly two centuries, till 1956's massive Catálogo dos livros de direito. A fine, unrestored copy in its original state. Provenance: A few modern booksellers' penciled notations to endleaves.

Très rare édition originale bien complète en 1 seul et unique volume (malgré la mention de tome 1 au dos) Description en photos ici: https://photos.app.goo.gl/s6hiPeBdfU7mumG32 Augustin de Barruel, appelé Augustin Barruel, né à Villeneuve-de-Berg le 2 octobre 1741 et mort à Paris le 5 octobre 1820, est un prêtre jésuite, et essayiste polémiste catholique français. Ses travaux consistent à affirmer que la Révolution française n'a pas été un mouvement de révolte spontanée du peuple, mais un processus organisé pendant plusieurs décennies dans des loges et dans des clubs (en particulier celui des Jacobins) afin de permettre à la bourgeoisie libérale de s'emparer du pouvoir. Barruel explique la Révolution par le conspirationnisme ou la théorie du complotcontre les tenants d'une révolution spontanée et populaire. En 1781, il publie sous le titre des Helviennes des lettres anti-lumières contre les encyclopédistes et la philosophie des Lumières.

Rare first edition of this collection of sinological treatises as a response to the work "De Sinensium imposturis dissertatio" by Benedek Cetto (1731-1799). The editor Pray was university librarian at Buda and an eminent historian. He and Cetto exchanged several books concerning a theory that Cetto had first presented in 1776 about the origin of the Hungarians which he tried to support with evidence from Chinese sources. In the present work Pray criticizes his understanding of Chinese chronology, astronomy, literature and Confucian philosophy. The second part contains eight letters sent by the jesuit Haller von Hallerstein (1703-1774) from China to Europe. The important mathematician, astronomer and missionary Hallerstein had come to China in 1738 and won the esteem of the Emperor Kiang-long. For many years he held the post of Chief of the Department of Mathematics in Beijing. In the present letters he tries to correct several misunderstandings Cetto had gathered from Chinese sources. - Title with old inscription, only minor browning, else fine.

Paul SANDBY (Nottingham, 1731 - Londra,1809)
"Acquatinte stampate ad inchiostro bistro, 1781, firmate in lastra in basso a destra e datate in basso al centro. Magnifiche prove, impresse su carta vergata coeva con filigrana, sottili margini, leggere abrasioni al verso, nel complesso in eccellente stato di conservazione. Serie completa delle quattro famose vedute del carnevale romane incise dal Sandby su disegno di David Allan (Alloa 1744 - Edimburgo 1796). Alla grande maggioranza di pitture, incisioni, acquerelli e disegni che illustrano le feste del carnevale romano con un eccesso di ""colore"", si contrappone questa serie, che descrive quei medesimi festosi eventi con un asciutto e spiritoso sguardo pur rilevandone la nascosta eleganza e sontuosità. Le acquetinte di Sandby sono tratte da una serie di dieci disegni di Allan eseguiti durante i suoi soggiorni romani e ora conservati nella Collezione Reale del Castello di Windsor. La tecnica dell'acquatinta, conferisce all'opera quel particolare tono simile all'acquarello rendendo le opere molto affascinanti. Raro set completo in straordinario stato di conservazione. Dimensioni 550x370 circa ognuna." Paul Sandby was a landscape painter and printmaker. David Allan was one of the first painters in Scotland to record the everyday life of ordinary people. He was based in Rome from around 1767 to 1777 where he painted historical subjects, portraits and the everyday life around him in a series of watercolours. In Scotland he enjoyed a successful career as both an artist and a teacher of art. Some of David Allan's watercolours of Rome were copied by Paul Sandby in London, as pr … [Click Below for Full Description]

Vincenzo FORMALEONI (Fiorenzuola d'Arda 1752 - Mantova 1797)
1781. "Sconosciuta carta geografica della regione, priva di data ed indicazioni editoriali. Come possiamo supporre dall'iscrizione in basso ""PARTE DELLA TERRA DI LAVORO, E DEL PRINCIPATO DI SALERNO"" si tratto di un foglio (di 6 probabilmente) di una grande carta del Regno di Napoli. La carta è pubblicata nel ""Atlante d'Italia dedicato alli Augusti Viaggiatori il Conte, e la Contessa, Del Nort"" Venezia MDCCLXXXII presso Vincenzo Formaleoni. Nessun esemplare di questa raccolta ci è noto, mentre la carta in questione è parte della raccolta conservata alla Biblioteca Nazionale Marciana di Venezia (284. c. 86). Si tratta di una raccolta fattizia, dunque senza il forntespizio con il titolo, che contiene carte di più editori. Il forntespizio dell'atlante del Formaleoni, è presente nella collezione privata dove abbiamo acquistato questa carta. Da quanto abbiamo potuto capire, le carte del Formaleoni sono quelle che poi vengono ristampate, con l'aggiunta di alcuni cartigli ed elementi decorativi, dalla Società Calcografica di Zatta e Remondini, attiva a Venezia alla fine del XVIII secolo e ai primi del XIX. Incisione in rame, con margini, in perfetto stato di conservazione. Rarissima." Non descritta.

Georg Abraham HACKERT (Prenzlau, 1755; Firenze, 1805)
1781. "Veduta di Roma da Monte Mario, incisa da Georg Abraham Hackert e disegnata da Jacob Philipp Hackert. Incisione all'acquaforte e bulino, in ottimo stato di conservazione. Da ""Roma Veduta"" (Artemide Edizioni): ""Le prime notizie sull'incisione del panorama di Roma, che Georg Hackert aveva realizzato da una veduta del fratello Jacob Philipp, ci sono fornite dal Giornale delle Belle Arti del 1784: ""Noi senza salire il Gianicolo, o il Monte Mario, in casa del medesimo Sig. Hackert abbiamo preso questo piacere. Il Signor Giorgio di lui Germano, Incisore eccellente ha voluto aprirci dinnanzi una gran Carta nella maggior fatica felicissima, ove è distesa dal Vaticano alla Porta Flaminia la nostra Roma [...]. La rarità dell'impresa e la sua perfezione ci giunge improvvisa: e pronunciammo perciò che in questa classe il Sig. Giorgio Hackert è il primo nostro incisore"". È noto che i due fratelli soggiornarono a Villa Mellini, ospiti della proprietaria Giulia Falconieri, intorno al 1781, e fu durante questo periodo che Philipp ebbe modo di dipingere la gouache - dalla quale fu tratta la stampa - che, acquistata dapprima dal conte Fries, passò poi, almeno fino alla seconda guerra mondiale, al Kupferstichkabinett di Berlino, dal quale risulta oggi dispersa (cfr. Nordhoff-Reiner 1994, p. 69, n. 159). Il panorama rispecchia la concezione del paesaggio ""secondo natura"" di Philipp. E la scelta di un'altura come punto di vista della veduta, da cui l'osservatore spazia fino all'orizzonte dei Colli Albani, rivela la sua visione minuziosa e ""topograficamente"" esatta.

MICKLE, William Julius.
Oxford: Printed by W. Jackson: And sold by J. Bew... London; and by the Booksellers of Oxford and Cambridge, 1781. 4to (273 × 210 mm), pp. vii, [i], 35, [3], complete with half-title and final advert; slightly duststained, modern quarter calf. First edition. Dumfrieshire-born Mickle had moved to London in 1763 with the express intention of becoming an author. His career was mixed and he spent several years as corrector of the Clarendon Press, Oxford. His Lusiad (1776) a translation of the renaissance epic by the Portugues Luís de Camões brought him some success but his income was precarious. In 1779 he found service as secretary aboard HMS Romney and purser of the Brilliant. Travelling to Portugal, he was elected to the Academia Real at Lisbon, where he also composed Almada Hill, 'a fresh and interesting poem' (DNB) and an intriguing European variant of the 'hill poem.' Aubin, p. 302; Jackson, p. 85.

SEWARD, Anna.
Lichfield: Printed and sold by J. Jackson, for the author; sold also by Robinson... Cadell and Evans...

First edition, signed by the author. Major John André was once a suitor to Honora Sneyd (d.1780), Seward's beloved adopted sister. He was always Seward's favourite, and his 'romantic and noble qualities' are memorialised here, in 'a timely poem protesting at André's court martial and hanging at Tappan by the Americans who condemned him as a British spy after the plans for the fortress at West Point were delivered to him by Benedict Arnold. Seward's denunciation of George Washington for his part in the affair was so fierce that Washington sent an emissary to Seward with evidence demonstrating that his role was limited' (Oxford DNB). Jackson, p. 87; Adams, 81-65a; Sabin, 79478.

Philadelphia : Gedruckt bey Steiner und Cist., 1781. [6], 575, [25] pages. Original full leather binding with original working clasps. Remarkable condition! Early German-language texts, printed in Philadelphia, with such amazing Southern associations are rare to the market, particularly in this condition. The Hendricks (and Roland) family moved to the Rowan County area in the 1770s. The Hendricks name is written numerous times on the endpapers. A list of family genealogy, primarily the younger children of Daniel & Mary are noted on the rear pastedown, with various dates in the 1790s. I've included some additional Hendricks Family history info below that I pulled from an online resource. I've done my best to describe the book, but if you have additional questions, please don't hesitate to send me an e-mail. HENDRICKS FAMILY GENEALOGY/HISTORY First Generation John Scott Davenport states that James Hendricks had been an unordained preacher in the Dunker congration at Little Conewago in Pennsylvania. He was living in Maryland by 1761, and then moved to North Carolina about 1772, settling initially in the Uwharrie Dunker community in what is now Randolph Co. NC, but soon moving to another Dunker community on Crane Creek in Rowan County, where he was known as "Elder James". His wife was named Christiana; traditionally her surname is given as Roland, but there doesn't seem to be solid documentation for this, and Davenport doesn't commit to it. Children of James and Christiana Hendricks Daniel Hendricks (ca. 1755-1804) m. Mary Roland, d/o Gaspar Roland and Mary Hunsaker Peter Hendr … [Click Below for Full Description]
