Burney, Frances [ Alternate Names; Mme d'Arblay, Fanny Burney)
London: T. Payne and Son, 1782. First Editions. 12mo. In five volumes. (1)pp. advertisement after title page. The author's second book. Evelina, her first book was written anonymously but became surprisingly popular. Burney laid the ground work for female novelists to come. She improved the respectability of the female writer. The contents of her books were considered proper even for the eyes of young ladies, and she displayed modesty in her personal life. Burney's works have more in common with Samuel Richardson's Pamela than Eliza Haywood's Love in Excess, but Burney's novels depict more realistic female heroines. Anne Radcliffe, Maria Edgeworth, and Jane Austen were all subscribers to the serialization of Burney's Camilla, and all owe Burney a debt for advancing the popularity of the courtship novel and the possibility of women being considered as novelists of worth. In total, she wrote four novels, eight plays, one biography and twenty volumes of journals and letters. In one of her journals, she described in detail the horrendous mastectomy she underwent during a time of no anesthesia, miraculously she survived the ordeal. The surgery was done in 1811 and she eventually died in 1840. An exceptionally nice set, earlier rebacking to style retaining the original marbled endpapers, raised bands with black and maroon spine labels gilt, neat contemporary owner's name, only an occasional spot of foxing. A beautiful set. Scarce. [Attributes: First Edition]

Réponse à la censure de la faculté de théologie de Paris contre l'Histoire Philosophique et Politique des établissements et du commerce des européens dans les deux Indes. Par M. l'abbé Raynal. Londres, 1782 [probablement imprimé en France, en Province] 1 volume in-8 (20 x 13 cm) de 205-(1) pp. Les pp. III à XIII sont un "Avis au peuple". Le dernier feuillet non chiffré contient l'errata. Reliure strictement de l'époque plein veau brun marbré à l'acide, dos à nerfs orné aux petits fers dorés, pièce de titre de maroquin rouge, tranches rouges, doublures et gardes de papier marbré. Excellent état de conservation, reliure et intérieur très frais. Edition originale. Ce volume a probablement été imprimé en province, en France contrairement à l'adresse de Londres qui est indiquée. La signature des cahiers n'indique pas une impression hollandaise. L'Histoire Philosophique et Politique des établissements et du commerce des européens dans les deux Indes de l'abbé Raynal paraît en 1770. Les éditions se succèdent pour aboutir à l'édition de 1780 (troisième édition) qui est interdite et censurée par la faculté de théologie de Paris. L'abbé Raynal prenait des libertés avec la religion et la monarchie (la religion y est traitée de la manière la plus matérialiste qui soit et l'esclavage y est dénoncé de manière très ouverte). La Faculté de théologie de Paris repère ainsi les articles : De l'homme et de la loi naturelle - De la religion juive - De Jésus-Christ - De l'établissement de la religion chrétienne - Des martyrs - D … [Click Below for Full Description]

Si dedicò con impegno nell'opera e nel decennio 1772-1782 riuscì a completare una prima edizione, in 13 volumi. Occorre precisare che per Girolamo Tiraboschi il termine "letteratura" non si riferiva soltanto alle opere letterarie, alle "belle lettere", ma comprendeva tutte le varie espressioni di ciò che era noto come "cultura", ciò che si tramandava con gli scritti o con le opere d'arte (arti figurative, filosofia, teologia, matematica, medicina, astrologia, diritto, ecc.) e le istituzioni dedicate alla loro trasmissione (scuole, accademie, biblioteche, ecc.).

London: Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society. 1782. London:: Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society. 1782., 1782. Small 4to (234 x 174 mm) pp. (iii)-vi, (229)-328. Numerous tables; pages 231-234 mis-bound, but present. Modern boards, printed paper spine label. Bookplates of Haskell Norman/University of Texas, and Andras Gedeon. Fine. FIRST EDITION of one of several scientific treatises by Benjamin Thompson, a native of Massachusetts who fought on the British side in the War of Independence and was knighted by George III. He later joined the court of the Elector of Bavaria and rose to become head of the elector's army. "Professionally, Thompson was a soldier of fortune. His first serious scientific study was to determine the optimal position of firing vents in cannon and to measure the velocity of the shot as a function of the composition of gunpowder. He used a ballistic pendulum method first introduced by Benjamin Robins. Thompson's long paper on this subject, published in 1781, won him fellowship in The Royal Society of London. Throughout his life he intermittently pursued his studies on the force of gunpowder. In 1797 he published the description of a device for proving gunpowder, which was generally accepted as the standard method by both the British and the Bavarian armies. It was during his investigations of cannon that he was impressed by the large amount of heat generated in cannon barrels by the explosion of gunpowder even when no ball was being fired. He was thus led to accept the vibratory theory of heat, which he championed actively all his … [Click Below for Full Description]

KNIGHTS OF MALTA
Frankfurt and Leipzig: s.n., 1782. 8vo, in sheets (sheet size 372 x 460 mm). Two and a half sheets ([A]8 B8 C4), paginated 39, [1]. Woodcut title vignette and headpiece. Foxing to title, first sheet dust-soiled along folds and edges, a few tiny perforations at folds. The sheets untrimmed, folded in a modern cloth case. *** Probable First Edition of a succinct and possibly description of the Order of Saint John (also known as the Knights of Malta), of the island itself and its unique social structure, and of the order's hospitals and good works. The anonymous author emphasizes throughout the Order's historical links to the German-speaking lands, pointing out, for example, that it was thanks to the Habsburg Holy Roman Emperor Charles V that the former Knights of Rhodes, who had wandered homeless for seven years after the Ottomans' successful siege of Rhodes, were able to settle in Malta in 1530. Following a brief history, which includes a reference to St. Paul's shipwreck and miracles, the writer turns to the island and its towns, filled with fine international hostels, plentiful food from Sicily (the island of Malta being barren), and gleaming hospitals, "the most beautiful in the world... more heavenly than earthly," for the Order, notes the author, is equally devoted to war and healing. This most interesting part of the monograph describes the functioning of the hospitals and notes that health care is provided to all inhabitants, not only the Knights and their entourages, and that those who cannot pay are treated for free (p. 21). The rest of the pamphlet lauds the mag … [Click Below for Full Description]

DEVONSHIRE, (Her Grace the Duchess of Devonshire) (1757-1806)
London, Published W. Dickinson, Engraver and Printseller, 1782. 44x33 cm (Lichtmass), Mezzotinto, (color printed copper-engraving), unter übereckvergoldetem Rahmen. (61x50). The Duchess of Devonchire, one of the first lady travellers on here own through Switzerland. She published a 'Sketch of a descriptive journey...' in London, 1796, a poem written for her children, in memory of her roundtrip in 1793 through Switzerland (cf. de Beer, Travellers in Switzerland). The mezzotinto is a very special technique, costly and with beautiful results, invented in 1642 in Holland by the German artist L. v. Siegen, it became very popular in the 17th and 18th c. in the English portrait-painting. Although a very important list of works of Ang. Kauffmann (Ec. Suisse) and Dickinson are mentionned in 'Le Blanc's' bibliography, this particular beautiful work is not mentionned. This plate is offered in a fine, handmade, gilt frame. 'Die Schabtechnik, auch Mezzotinto oder Schwarzkunst genannt, ist ein Tiefdruckverfahren, das 1642 in Holland von dem Deutschen Ludwig von Siegen entwickelt wurde. Sie erlebte im 17. und 18. Jahrhundert in der englischen Porträtmalerei ihren Höhepunkt. Aufgrund des hohen Arbeitsaufwands, der mit dieser Technik verbunden ist, gibt es wenig moderne Arbeiten in Mezzotinto.

HELMAN, Isidore-Stanislas.
Deluxe issue, printed on wove paper, of two handsomely engraved print series, with each print accompanied by an engraved text leaf. The first series is a radically revised version of Dijian tushuo (The emperor's mirror), designed to appeal to educated Parisians. Besides reframing the Chinese historical anecdotes for a French audience, Helman also completely reconceptualised "Published in Paris just a year before the French revolution, perhaps the volume was meant as a veiled criticism not only of Louis XVI's policies but also of his wife, Marie-Antoinette" (Reed & Demattè). The second series illustrates the life of Confucius, with on the text leaves "morales de Confucius" from Collection des moralistes anciens (1782). Both series are here printed on wove paper, and ad 2 (usually dated 1786) appears to have been issues together with ad 1 in 1788.A couple occasional spots and some very minor foxing in the upper margins, otherwise a very good copy. The binding has some minor wear along the extremities of the spine, but is also very good.l Cordier, Sinica, cols. 587-588; Löwendahl 647 & 654; Reed & Demattè 21-22, and pp. 43-45.

[4], "376" [= 378] pp.A rare edition of the French translation of Rickman's account detailing James Cook's third and final voyage of discovery. Notwithstanding the statement on the title-page ("seconde édition"), two earlier editions were published in 1782. The frontispiece is a close copy of that in the first edition; the chart, the same as in the first edition, is lacking in most copies: "the three copies examined all lack a chart" (Forbes). Rickman, Second Lieutenant on board the Discovery, published anonymously, to avoid legal action. He had managed to keep his journal, even though everything was taken into possession and sealed. His account is an important supplement to the official publication.

[MANUSCRIPT - PETITION, ACCOMPANYING DOCUMENTS & LETTERS]. VARNHAGEN, Frederico Luiz Guilherme de.
[2], [2 blank]; [22], [2 blank]; [2], [2 blank]; [2], [2 blank] pp.Petition to King Miguel I of Portugal by Frederico Luiz Guilherme de Varnhagen (1782-1840), requesting an appointment as "intendente de minas" (superintendent of mines) to replace the retiring incumbent, Barão de Eschwege. The petition was granted. It was accompanied by notarized transcriptions of supporting documents. With it are 3 related letters from Varnhagen, the first to King João VI of Portugal in 1825, requesting the grant of an estate in return for his many years of service and the other two to Miguel I's minister and Secretary of State for Justice, the Conde de Basto (1749-1833) in 1829, in relation to his petition. Varnhagen was born in Arolsen (Hessen), but in 1803 the Portuguese prince regent, the future King João VI, induced him to come direct the Portuguese iron works. When the Royal family fled to Rio de Janeiro in Brazil in 1808, Varnhagen went with them helped set up a Brazilian iron works that he eventually directed with success.The letter of 1825 is folded horizontally and must have been turned 90° when the documents were stored, so that the water stain that runs through the foot of the other documents, appears in its gutter, running through the end of the lines of text on page 2.

This critical travel account is the result of a literary journey Franz Joseph Sulzer (1727-1791) made together with his son in the summer of 1782 to Austria, Hungary, Bavaria and Alsace. During this journey they visited many monasteries and libraries and Sulzers got acquainted with many scholars such as Johann Jacob Bodmer, Johann Caspar Lavater, Salomon Gessner, Johann Jacob Hess, the publisher J. Turneisen and Isaak Iselin in Basel. In Freiburg he met the professors Franz Jos. Bopp and Jos. Anton Petzeck, who advised him to try to get the professorship for Statistics at the Hochschule in Vienna. Back in Kronstadt, however, he returned to the army with the rank "Rittmeister und Auditor im Dragonerregimente Savoyen".

DEFRÉMERY, Charles and others.
Collection of 11 French offprints and extracts of articles concerning the history of the Islamic world, all by notable orientalists, covering diverse topics such as the architecture of the Arabs and Moors, the astronomy of the Chaldeans, the Hindustani language, the Persian chronicle Mojmal al-tawarikh, the Ghurid dynasty, the kings of Achlath and Mardin (modern day Turkey), the Persian Mozaffarid dynasty, the Persian Sultan Barkiarocq, and India, but also including the autobiography of the famous Arab historiographer and historian Ibn Khaldun. Most of the authors were students of the distinguished orientalist Silvestre de Sacy. "it was inevitable that French Orientalism in the first half of the nineteenth century should be dominated by de Sacy's students. The most prominent of these was Etienne-Marc Quatremère (1782-1857)" (Irwin). Four of the articles are written by a student of Quatremère, Charles Defrémery (1822-1883), who had a "high reputation as an orientalist" (Cooper) himself.With a manuscript index to the articles. A couple leaves slightly browned and a small tear in the title-page of the third article, otherwise in very good condition. Binding very good as well.l Cf.

Foxing to title, first sheet dust-soiled along folds and edges, a few tiny perforations at folds. The sheets untrimmed, folded in a modern cloth case. *** Probable first edition of a succinct and possibly description of the Order of Saint John (also known as the Knights of Malta), of the island itself and its unique social structure, and of the order's hospitals and good works. The anonymous author emphasizes throughout the Order's historical links to the German-speaking lands, pointing out, for example, that it was thanks to the Habsburg Holy Roman Emperor Charles V that the former Knights of Rhodes, who had wandered homeless for seven years after the Ottomans' successful siege of Rhodes, were able to settle in Malta in 1530.Following a brief history, which includes a reference to St. Paul's shipwreck and miracles, the writer turns to the island and its towns, filled with fine international hostels, plentiful food from Sicily (the island of Malta being barren), and gleaming hospitals, "the most beautiful in the world... more heavenly than earthly," for the Order, notes the author, is equally devoted to war and healing. This most interesting part of the monograph describes the functioning of the hospitals and notes that health care is provided to all inhabitants, not only the Knights and their entourages, and that those who cannot pay are treated for free (p. 21).

Keulen-- Johannes van
Paskaart van het Marsdiep en Texel, kopergravure uitgegeven te Amsterdam ca. 1782 door Johannes van Keulen en Zoonen. Later met de hand gekleurd. Afm ca. 49,5 x 57 cm.Het Marsdiep, de doorgang tussen Den Helder en Texel was belangrijk voor de Amsterdamse scheepvaart. Het was dan ook van groot belang dat schippers wisten hoe ze veilig tussen de ondiepten door, naar Texel en van daar verder naar de Noordzee konden varen. Onderaan op de kaart zien we Fort de Schans, aangelegd in opdracht van Willem van Oranje. Die wilde het eiland en de Reede van Texel beschermen tegen de Spanjaarden.Voor de Texelse kust lagen veel schepen voor anker te wachten tot de wind uit de juiste richting kwam om te vertrekken naar verre bestemmingen. Schepen die de ondiepe Zuiderzee niet konden bevaren, lagen hier voor anker om hun vracht te laden of te lossen. De Schans zorgde niet alleen voor de kustverdediging: het fort deed in de gouden eeuw ook dienst als rechtbank bij muiterij op de schepen en werd gebruikt als gevangenis.Op deze paskaart zijn alleen vanuit zee zichtbare en opvallende topografische details van het kustgebied als ori?nteringspunten of bakens voor de zeeman weergegeven. Zo zien we dat met name kerktorens, duintoppen, vuurboten, etc. zijn aangegeven. Minutieus weergegeven zijn de vaargeulen, zandplaten (en hun namen), betonning, en diepteaanduidingen.Amsterdamse uitgevers-drukkers beheersten de wereldmarkt voor cartografie in de zeventiende eeuw. Met name op maritiem-cartografisch gebied wist men deze vooraanstaande positie lang te behouden, vooral dankzij uitgevershuis Van Keulen, … [Click Below for Full Description]

OS, Georgius Jacobus Johannes.
[4] ll.Georgius Jacobus Johannes van Os (1782-1861), not to be confused with his nephew George Jac. Joh. Van Os (1805-1841), also a painter, was as a member of a Dutch family of artists. He studied with his father, Jan van Os, a painter of flowers and maritime views. In 1812 Georgius entered the Salon de Paris for the first time. In the following period he not only worked in Paris, but also in The Hague and Amsterdam. In Sèvres, a southwestern suburb of Paris, he worked for the famous porcelain factory. After 1826 he settled definitively in Paris where he died in 1861. He is mainly known for his exquisite "natures mortes", specializing in still lifes of flowers, fruit and game. From early on he demonstrated such exceptional talent that he was asked to paint several flowers for the plates of Jan Kops’s famous Flora Batava (1800-1822). He soon developed into one of the most celebrated still life painters of the 19th century.These four exquisite watercolours show well-considered arrangements of (1) a fig, citron, walnut, gooseberries and blackberries; (2) peonies and jasmine; (3) lilies and lilacs and (4) peonies and morning glories.Some discolouring at the edges from a former frame, otherwise in good condition.l Cf. RKD 245504; for the artist: Thieme/Becker 26, pp. 68-69.
