1781 - Carta Della Nuova Inghilterra Nuova Yorc, e Pensilvania (New England /New Jersey/ Pennsylvania/ Lake Ontario / Iroquois / Native Americans) Issued Venice, 1781 by Bellin. Lovely and rare Italian antique map depecting the eastern seaboard of the U. S. from New Jersey to Maine. Includes Lake Champlain, Lake Ontario, and a mention of the Iroquois. Decorative strapwork cartouche in the bottom right corner adds to the fine asthetic of this very scare mid-18th century map of New England. Unlike the more commonly encountered French versions, all Italian versions are much scarcer. St. Georges Fishing Bank is identified within the Atlantic Ocean. This example remains clean & fresh, almost as issued in appearance. Original fold line (s) as issued. Sheet measures c. 13 3/4" x 10 1/2"Printed area measures c. 11 1/2" x 7 3/4".

VERRI, Pietro (1728-1797)
Giuseppe Marelli, 1781. In 8° (mm 205x150); pp. (23), 2-100, (5), 102-183, (4), 186-394. Legatura coeva in mezza pelle verde con punte, dorso con fregi, tassello e titolo in oro, piatti in carta marmorizzata, tagli picchiettati. Mancano le due carte con l'indice dei paragrafi della terza parte (Della economia politica) e la prima e l'ultima carta bianca. Ritratto in medaglione sul titolo. Ottima copia.PRIMA EDIZIONE COLLETTIVA. Le Meditazioni sull'economia politica apparvero per la prima volta nel 1771. "Verri's Reflections is a complete treatise on political economy, reminiscent of Turgot's work (1766) with its tight logical framework and division into fairly short sections. Although these cover a wide range of subjects, they are interconnected by the basic theme of the work, the increase in annual reproduction of the nation through trade of surplus product which Verri related to the balance of production and consumption. ... Some features of this analysis may be specifically noted... His emphasis on supply and demand (used to determine all prices including the rate of interest) combined with references to utility and scarcity in the context of value (section 4) explains why this part of his work has been linked with marginalist economics. ... Verri's Reflections were highly regarded when they appeared, and could be found, for example, in Smith's library" (Groenewegen in New Palgrave, IV p. 807). J.A. Schumpeter elogia Verri come "a true econometrician - for example, he was one of the first economists to figure out a balance of payments - that is to say, he knew how to wea … [Click Below for Full Description]

MERCIER, Louis-Sébastien;
Londres, 1781. 2 parties en un volume in-8 de XII, 271 pp. - (2) ff., 240 pp., demi-basane havane, dos lisse orné de filets dorés, titre doré, non rogné (reliure du XIXe siècle). Édition originale. Le Tableau de Paris avec lequel Louis-Sébastien Mercier s'est acquis une juste renommée apparaît comme l'aboutissement d'une ?uvre littéraire aussi profuse que protéiforme. Son Tableau synthétise d'une part ses recherches dans le domaine théâtral, où à la suite de Diderot et de son drame bourgeois, il s'était attaché à la peinture de nouvelles classes sociales, aux détails familiers, et à des personnages de la vie courante. Son ouvrage prolonge d'autre part, L'An 2440, fiction dans laquelle Mercier dessinait déjà en creux le visage d'une capitale contemporaine. L'invention d'un nouveau genre littéraire. En embrassant Paris dans son ensemble ou dans ses détails les plus anodins, en rendant compte des spectacles multiples et mouvants qui s'offrent quotidiennement au regard, Mercier "invente ce qui va s'appeler un demi-siècle plus tard le reportage : à la fois chroniques parisiennes, promenades et choses vues" (Michel Delon). Animé par la volonté encyclopédique de restituer tout ce que son ?il saisi de la ville, de tout peindre - comme le souligne le terme même de Tableau -, Mercier varie les points de vue - larges ou resserrés - et multiplie les juxtapositions étonnantes. Son écriture suit le rythme du promeneur et s'adapte avec bonheur au hasard des rencontres. L'absence délibérée de numérotation des chapitres successifs - propre à l'édition originale -, conforte ici cette percept … [Click Below for Full Description]

Des Barres, Joseph F. Wallet
London: J.F.W. Des Barres, in THE ATLANTIC NEPTUNE, 1781. 31 3/4 x 47 inches. Etching with roulette work, with added hand color. Printed on two joined sheets. On laid paper with "J Bates" watermark and "JB" countermark. Fine. A print from THE ATLANTIC NEPTUNE which charts the Annapolis Royal, with a coastal view of Gulliver's Hole and a descriptive text. THE ATLANTIC NEPTUNE was the first great marine atlas, and one of the greatest achievements of 18th-century cartography. Published in England in 1774, it contains over 250 charts and views of the North American and Canadian coasts. The charts are intensely detailed and contain both hydrographical and topographical details. The ...NEPTUNE was compiled and published for the Royal Navy by Joseph F.W. Des Barres, a Swiss cartographer who joined the Royal American Regiment as a surveyor. Des Barres fought in the French and Indian wars and was enlisted to survey the Canadian coastline. While his fellow surveyor, Samuel Holland, charted the New England coast, Des Barres mapped the shoreline of Nova Scotia, Newfoundland, and the St. Lawrence River regions. In 1774, Des Barres returned to England where he compiled and published his monumental atlas. His dedication to the project was so strong that he published an updated version of the work every year until 1784. Des Barres' work was so superior to any other contemporary atlas that the maps were used as the standard charts of the East Coast for over fifty years. The ...NEPTUNE remains one of the most important atlases ever printed. Its views and maps chart the history of N … [Click Below for Full Description]

SEALLY, John; LYONS, Israel
John Fielding nd. Engraved frontispiece dated 1781, London - 2 vols.: xxiv, unpaginated. 28 cm. Engraved frontispiece in vol. I as well as 15 colour maps (13 of which fold out) and 14 b&w engravings. Vol. II has 16 colour maps (9 of which fold out) and 19 b&w engravings. Tree leather bindings. Repaired hinges and corners. Some scuffs and marks to boards. Occasional spots and tears. John Seally's Geographical Dictionary is a fascinating description of what he calls the "terraqueous globe" in the late 18th century. London, England is "a prodigy, that nothing in the world does, or ever did surpass, except it was old Rome in Trajan's time." Paris, however, is "greatly inferior to London in many of the conveniences of life." The description of Canada is even less complimentary, since "the air of Canada is so excessive cold from December to April, that the greatest rivers are frozen over, and the snow lies commonly from 4 to 6 feet deep on the ground, even in the southern parts of the province." The American Revolutionary War has begun, but not ended, and Boston has been "proscribed, and port removed by the English parliament, April 4, 1774, for refusing a tax on tea."The astronomical section of these volumes came from "the papers Of the late Mr. Israel Lyons" who, the title page tells us, was "Astronomer in Lord Mulgrave's Voyage to the Northern Hemisphere." Although many opportunities were denied Lyons because of his Jewish heritage, Sir Joseph Banks obtained Lyons the position of astronomer on the 1773 North Pole voyage led by Constantine Phipps, 2nd Baron Mulgrave. Lyons died … [Click Below for Full Description]

DODD (William)
London: Printed for Harrison and Co, 1781. 8vo (in 4s), 210 x 128 mms., pp. vi [7] - 169 [170 blank], 4 full-page engraved plates (by Heath and Angus after Stothard (bound out of sequence), printed in double columns, recently rebound in buckram; some slight foxing and spotting of text. "The Macaroni Parson" and forger William Dodd (1729 -1777) first published this novel, described by Philip Rawlings in ODNB, as " a novel whose dullness at least conceals its limp eroticism," in 1754. As a sample of "limp eroticism," I cite this passage: "They [Lucy and Captain Smith] scarce permitted the supper to come and go, (so eager were both for a more delicate repast) before the maid was ordered to help her mistress to undress; and she, covered over with blushes, retired into the next room, and her undoing. The captain could scarce stay a few short minutes before he flew to her, and finding her half dressed and half displayed, the most inviting and delicious situation! with his own glowing fingers he freed her from her other incumbrances, and locking the door, put a stop to all her virgin fears." The text here is that of The Novelist's Magazine, published by Harrison, 1780 - 1788. So far as I can tell, the illustrations appear here for the first time. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

Carver travelled farther west than any Englishman before the Revolution, going as far as the Dakotas, exploring the headwaters of the Mississippi and passing over the Great Lakes. The text contains the first published mention of the word ?Oregon.? The author comments on the Indians he encountered, as well as offering observations on natural history. The tobacco plant plate is handsomely colored. An important source book and stimulus for later explorers, especially Mackenzie and Lewis and Clark. This is the second issue, according to Howes, with the index.CHAR(13) + CHAR(10)Greenly Michigan, 21; Howes, C215 ?b?; Field, 251; Sabin, 11184; Vail, 670. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

A Paris, chez Eugène Onfroy et chez l¿auteur 1779-1781. 4 volumes in-8, veau marbré, dos à nerfs ornés, pièces de titre rouge et pièces de tomaison vertes, tranches rouges. (Une coiffe et qq. coins usés, petite fente à un mors inférieur.) Edition donnée par l'abbé Pierre Jean Baptiste Le Grand d'Aussy (1737-1800), jésuite professeur de rhétorique à Caen. Venu à Paris à la suite de la suppression de son ordre, il travailla au glossaire français de Lacurne de Sainte-Palaye et aux Mélanges que préparaient le Marquis de Paulmy. De 1795 à sa mort, il est conservateur au département des manuscrits de la Bibliothèque nationale. Ce recueil est l'un des ouvrages importants dans la redécouverte de la littérature du Moyen Age si méprisée à la Renaissance. Parallèlement à l'effort des érudits une vaste entreprise de vulgarisation se donnait la tache de mettre à la portée d'un public étendu, sous forme d'éditions accessibles, de traductions ou d¿adaptations, ces oeuvres longtemps méconnues : Le Lai d'Aristote, Le Chevalier à l'épée, Huéline et Eglantine, Merlin, Aucassin et Nicolette, etc. Les textes sont ici entièrement traduits et mis au goût du jour et si le volume contient des notes historiques et critiques il est plus destiné à la distraction qu'à l'érudition. A la fin du Tome III, après une importante table des matières, on trouve, en pagination séparée avec titre particulier à la date de 1781, des Observations sur les troubadours.

VALPERGA Y SIMO (Bartolomé) ].
Reimpresa en Mallorca, 1781. - in-12. XVIII. 60pp. 60pp. 52pp. 75pp. (i.e. 76). 1 planche hors-texte. Plein vélin de l'époque, titre manuscrit au dos, traces de liens. Seconde édition de la première biographie de Sainte Catalina Tomàs (1533-1574), célèbre mystique mallorquine originaire de Valldemossa où sa mémoire est honorée chaque année au mois de juillet. Descendante de Ramón Llull, Catalina Tomàs était souvent prise de visions extatiques, réalisait des prophéties et prédit la date de sa propre mort. Cet ouvrage parut pour la première fois en 1617 mais la présente édition, entreprise peu après la béatification de la religieuse en 1779, resta inachevée et parut sans les livres V et VI du texte original. "Faltan los dos últimos libros, que son el V y VI, con que Valperga terminó su obra. El índice que va al principio no los comprende, pero en el final hay la llamada del libro V, lo que prueba que se suspendió la impresión y no se terminó" (Bover). La page de titre est ornée d'une gravure sur bois représentant la Trinité, Saint Augustin et Sainte Catalina. A la fin de l'ouvrage se trouve également une autre gravure sur bois à pleine page représentant le mausolée de la Sainte, et signée par le graveur mallorquin Melchor Guasp. Cette gravure semble manquer à la plupart des exemplaires que nous avons trouvés répertoriés. Très bon exemplaire de cet ouvrage rare (seulement 3 exemplaires, dont un défectueux, au catalogue collectif Espagnol, tous conservés à Mallorca). Palau, 349146. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

SADE Donatien Alphonse François, Marquis de
s.l. |(Vincennes), 1781. Fine. s.l. (Vincennes) s.d. (circa 1781), 15,7x20,1cm, une feuille. - 42821 - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Lettre autographe, non signée, du Marquis de Sade adressée à sa femme. Une page rédigée à l'encre, écriture serrée sur 31 lignes. Cette lettre a été publiée dans la correspondance du Marquis de Sade. Provenance?: archives de la famille. Cette lettre a été rédigée lors de l'incarcération de Sade à Vincennes, probablement en avril 1781, si l'on en croit les quelques repères temporels évoqués par le rédacteur lui-même. Le Marquis parle en effet de la fin de l'«?exil de Marseille?», faisant ainsi référence à la décision de la cour d'Aix-en-Provence qui, le 14 juillet 1778, casse le jugement pour débauche et libertinage, mais lui interdit d'habiter ou de fréquenter la cité phocéenne pour une durée de trois ans. Sade revient en outre sur l'un des épisodes marquants de sa vie, sa cavale italienne, qui eut lieu entre janvier et novembre 1776?: «?il valait autant me tuer tout d'un coup ou me laisser dans le pays étranger quand j'y étais?». Le Marquis évoque également «?l'étonnante faveur?» qui lui est faite «?de changer de bercail?», c'est-à-dire sa possible translation au fort de Montélimar. En avril 1781, Madame de Sade obtient du Roi, par l'intermédiaire de son amie Madame de Sorans, l'autorisation que son mari soit transféré à la prison montilienne. Le Marquis explique dans la lettre?: «?je trouve qu'il faut être d'une belle impudence pour oser écrire à un malheureux qui souffre depuis neuf ans [...] de remercier bien humblement la personne qui lui … [Click Below for Full Description]

(CHEMISTRY, 18TH CENTURY). MACQUER, PIERRE-JOSEPH
Venice: Giovanni Gatti, 1781. 214 x 147 mm. (8 1/2 x 5 3/4"). Four volumes. Attractive contemporary limp paper boards, patterned with yellow, red, and black inks, paper manuscript labels on spines, deckle edges. With four folding engraved plates at the end of volume IV. Pastedown of volume I with a small square of paper with some inscrutable pencil notations glued down. Bolton, p. 646; Cole 893; Partington, III, pp. 80-90. Edges just a touch bumped, a few pages with some very light foxing, one page with a small hole affecting a word or two of text, plates a little browned along the fold and one plate partially torn along the fold, but still A SUPERB COPY, exceptionally fresh and clean inside and out.Offered here in very pleasing contemporary paper boards, this is the first combined edition in Italian of two of Macquer's most popular works: "Élémens de chymie-théorique" (1749) and "Élémens de chymie-pratique" (1751). Coherently written in a straightforward manner, primarily with the classroom in mind (Macquer himself was a highly respected teacher), these works became instantly successful as university-level textbooks. Partington tells us that they replaced Lemery's rather outdated "Cours de Chymie" as the favored text for teaching, and they were eventually translated into English, German, Russian, and Italian. Macquer (1718-84) made a few modest chemical discoveries, but his chief contributions to the science were his applications of chemistry (in particular to the porcelain industry) and, most importantly, his writing. In addition to the … [Click Below for Full Description]
