        POEMS BY ... OF THE INNER TEMPLE, ESQ. [with:] THE TASK, A POEM IN SIX BOOKS ... TO WHICH ARE ADDED ... AN EPISTLE TO JOSEPH HILL, ESQ. TIROCINIUM, OR A REVIEW OF SCHOOLS, AND THE HISTORY OF JOHN GILPIN

      London: Printed for J. Johnson, 1782 - 1785.. Two volumes. [4],367,[errata];[8],359,[1]pp. Uniformly bound in full forest green crushed levant, raised bands, spines gilt extra, gilt inner dentelles, a.e.g., by Riviere. Spines uniformly sunned to tan, a bit of foxing to prelims in each volume, two short marginal tears in fore-edge of [A3] in second volume, surface scratch to lower board of volume I, but a very good, tall (188mm) set, with the half-title in the second volume. First editions of Cowper's first and second collections of poems. While the second work is in many ways an independent collection, the half-title affirms the publisher's intention that it be identified as the second, companion volume to the first. As usual, John Newton's 8 page Preface is not present in the first volume - the decision to cancel it was made within a week of publication, and it was included in only a few special copies, and after the success of THE TASK, distributed on demand or separately to earlier purchasers. It did not appear as an integral part of the book until the fifth edition (1793). As usual, leaves E6 and I6 are in their canceled state. In the present copy of the second work, the catchwords on pp. 304 and 306 are correct. RUSSELL 68 & 69. HAYWARD 191. ROTHSCHILD 681. GROLIER ENGLISH HUNDRED 60. ESTC T14895 & T14896.

        Poems by William Cowper of the Inner Temple

      London: J. Johnson, 1782-, 1785. Two volumes, octavo; light foxing and early ownership inscription on title of volume two, a handsome set in attractive nineteenth-century calf. First edition, issue without preface. The first edition of volume one was published separately in 1782 as Poems, the first edition of volume two appeared separately in 1785 as The Task. Poems was quietly received, "the acuter critics alone perceived the frequent force of his writing, his quiet humour, and his fine touches of criticism" (DNB). The Task was an immediate success, making him the foremost English poet of the day. "In the 'Task', his playfulness, his exquisite appreciation of simple natural beauties, and his fine moral perceptions found full expression" (DNB).

        Voyages autour du monde , et vers les deux Pôles par terre et par mer

      Paris: Moutard, 1782. Two volumes, octavo, with ten folding engraved maps and plates; some scattered spots, small tear to first title-page, but a very good copy in later half calf over original papered boards. Rare eyewitness account of Kerguelen's second voyage. First edition: the rare original account of Pagès's extensive narrative of travel and exploration, of most interest for the second volume which recounts his voyage towards the South Pole in search of a Southern Continent under Kerguelen in 1773-74. The ten fine engravings all relate to this part of the work. This was Kerguelen's second voyage, and a disastrous one: Pagès was to be an important witness in the subsequent court-martial of the commander for the events surrounding the dismasting of the Rolland during a storm. Kerguelen was dismissed from the service, and his printed account of the voyage, which was officially suppressed, is today very rare. This second volume also describes Pagès's experiences on a whaling voyage north of Spitzbergen in 1776, which includes much information on whaling and the natural history of the whale.

        An Authentic Narrative of a Voyage performed by Captain Cook and Captain Clerke, in His Majesty's Ships Resolution and Discovery, during the Years 1776, 1777, 1778, 1779, and 1780; in search of a North-West Passage... including a faithful Account of all their Discoveries, and the unfortunate Death of Captain Cook

      London: G. Robinson, J.Sewell; and J. Debrett, 1782. Two volumes, octavo, with a folding chart and 21 engraved plates; a fine copy in contemporary gilt calf, joints expertly repaired. The third voyage, by the surgeon's mate. First edition: an attractive set of this rare account - the second account to appear in English - of Cook's third voyage: 'an important supplement to the official account, which it preceded by two years' (Forbes). Ellis, surgeon's mate and talented amateur artist, sailed first on the Discovery and later on the Resolution. During the voyage he was esteemed by Captain Clerke as a 'very worthy young man'. On his return he was in financial straits and, despite the prohibition by the Admiralty of the publication of any unauthorised account of the voyage, sold his narrative to a London publisher for fifty guineas. It was published over his name, and was thus the first account of the expedition to acknowledge its authorship, earning the condemnation of Sir Joseph Banks, who wrote to him in January 1782 that 'I fear it will not in future be in my power to do what it might have been, had you asked and followed my advice'. Ellis' narrative contains much valuable information on Alaska, the Northwest Coast, and Hawaii, and the attractive engraved plates, after the author's drawings, include eight of Hawaii, two of Alaska, and three of the Northwest Coast. The plates show Ellis to have been a talented amateur artist, and represent a significant contribution to the graphic record of the voyage.They 'are among the earliest published on the Hawaiian Islands, Alaska, and the Northwest' (Hill). Choris' famous views did not appear until almost forty years later. Ellis' views of Hawaii provide the first general depictions of the islands, as Rickman's book, published in the previous year, showed only the death of Cook while Zimmermann's account was not illustrated. There is a chapter devoted to their visit to Van Diemen's Land in January 1777, in the course of which Ellis painted a famous watercolour view of Adventure Bay, now in the National Library of Australia. Ellis died in 1785 after a fall from the main mast of a ship lying at Ostend.

        Nummorum veterum populorum et urbium, qui in Museo Gulielmi Hunter. . .Inscribed by Baillie to Cruikshank

      London: J. Nichols, 1782. <p>Inscribed by Baillie to Cruikshank</p><p>Hunter, William (1718-83). Nummorum veterum populorum et urbium, qui in museo Gulielmi Hunter asservantur, descriptio figuris illustrata. Opera et studio Caroli Combe . . . 4to. xi, [1], 354, [2, errata]pp. 68 engraved plates. London: J. Nichols; sold by T. Cadell; P. Elmsley, G. Nichol & J. Murray, 1782. 286 x 228 mm. <I>Red crushed morocco gilt </I>ca. 1784, a.e.g., slight wear at edges, evidence of bookplate removal inside front cover. Fine copy apart from some foxing to the plates. <b>Inscribed by Matthew Baillie (1761-1823) to William Cruikshank (1745-1800) on the front flyleaf: "To Mr. Cruikshank with Mr. Baillie&#39;s best Compliments." </b>19th cent. ownership signature of Edward Thomas, dated Sept. 14, 1839, and later note, presumably by a Thomas descendent. </p><p>First Edition of the first and only published installment of the catalogue of William Hunter&#39;s magnificent collection of coins, a collection regarded as one of the finest in the world. Hunter began collecting coins around 1770, and by the time of his death had spent over £22,000 on this pursuit-an enormous sum of money by the standards of the day. After Hunter&#39;s death, by the terms of his will, the coin collection, together with Hunter&#39;s books, pictures and anatomical models, remained in the care of three trustees for thirty years, after which time they became the property of the University of Glasgow. In 1807 the collections were sent to Glasgow, where they now represent the core of the University&#39;s Hunterian Museum. </p><p>Nummorum veterum populorum et urbium was compiled by Charles Combe (1743-1817), a physician and coin dealer who became acquainted with Hunter in 1773, and greatly assisted Hunter in forming his collection. Combe was one of the three trustees appointed in Hunter&#39;s will to administer his collections, the other two being Dr. George Fordyce and Dr. David Pitcairne. Combe had originally intended to prepare a catalogue of the complete Hunterian coin collection, but was able to publish only this installment. The work is illustrated with 68 plates that Combe took care to make "more faithful to the original coins than the illustrations in previous numismatic works" (Dictionary of National Biography). </p><p>Our copy of Nummorum veterum populorum et urbium has an outstanding association, being inscribed by Hunter&#39;s nephew Matthew Baillie to Hunter&#39;s assistant William Cruikshank. Baillie and Cruikshank took over the administration of Hunter&#39;s Windmill Street anatomy school after Hunter&#39;s death. Hunter bequeathed the use of his collections to Baillie for a term of thirty years; had Baillie died during this time, the use of the collections would have passed to Cruikshank. Both men made lasting contributions to medicine. Baillie is best known as the author of The Morbid Anatomy of Some of the Most Important Parts of the Human Body, the first systematic study of pathology and the first publication in English on pathology as a separate subject (see Garrison-Morton 2281). Cruikshank, together with John Hunter and William Hewson, laid the foundation of modern knowledge of the lymphatic system, as described in Cruikshank&#39;s Anatomy of the Absorbing Vessels of the Human Body (1786; see Garrison-Morton 1103).

        Autograph musical manuscript signed of the Sonata in Eb Major for solo keyboard. Complete. No date, but ca. 1782 or later

      [1] (title), [2]-[8] pp. Folio (ca. 300 x 230 mm.). Unbound. Notated in ink on 16-stave music manuscript paper. The work is in three movements, the first, marked "Allegro," in 82 measures; the second 70 measures; and the third, marked "Rondeau Allegretto," in 210 measures. 14 measures cancelled. Overpaste corrections to a total of 10 measures, with several additional corrections. . The present manuscript is Viotti&#39;s arrangement of his Sonata for Violin and Bass (Giazotto no. 36), composed in Paris in 1782. While there are published editions of the version for violin and bass (see RISM V1940-V1946), there do not appear to be any published editions of this version for keyboard. A highly distinguished Italian violinist and composer, Viotti is regarded as "the most influential violinist between Tartini and Paganini and the last great representative of the Italian tradition stemming from Corelli. He is considered the founder of the &#145;modern&#146; (19th-century) French school of violin playing, and his compositions, among the finest examples of Classical violin music, exerted a strong influence on 19th-century violin style."

        Important Manuscript Document

      Spanish Town, Jamaica, 1782. Spanish Town, Jamaica, 1782. unbound. 2 pages (front and back), 7.75 x 7.75 inches, Head Quarters, Spanish Town, Jamaica, October 26, 1782, a rare General Order allocating munitions to British soldiers in the defense of Spanish Town, in part: "...The ammunition of the several Regiments to be completed immediately to 200 rounds per man for service, packed up in kegs, or boxes, containing each from six hundred to six hundred and fifty Cartridges...to be fixed or slung on Pack Saddles. Things to be provided for this purpose...pieces of painted cloth to preserve the ammunition from Rain. The expense to be charged in the Regiment contingent accounts. The camp equipage of each Regiment to be also completed and every preparation made for taking the Field in the shortest notice. The Regiments will report when they are completed and in readiness agreeable to this Order." This document was issued one year after Yorktown and six months after the British victory at the Battle of the Saints, April 12, 1782. With the war having moved from North America to the West Indies, the British had to encounter a joint French-Spanish fleet whose intention was to conquer Jamaica. The Battle of the Saints is extremely important in naval history; by far the biggest fought at sea in the American War of Independence. As can be seen by this document, the British Regiments in Spanish Town were in a constant state of High Alert, a condition that lasted until November 30, 1782 when England and the United States signed the preliminary Articles of Peace. On verso: Extraordinary Manuscript Document, the proper form to be made-use-of "by Officers when they apply to their respective Commanding Officers for leave to sell their Commissions." In small part: "I beg you will obtain for me His Majesty&#39;s Consent to the sale of my Commission of________and it is my intentions to hereby resign all rights and position to any future rank or Promotion in the Army, and I do further declare, and certify, upon the Word and Honor of an Officer and a Gentleman, that I have not demanded, or accepted, neither will I demand or accept_______more than the sum of_____Pounds Sterling, being the price limited or fixed by His Majesty&#39;s Regulation, as the full value of the said Commission." Undoubtedly, any British Officer filling out this form in 1782 could only have been a veteran of the disastrous American Revolution. Once the sale of his Commission was complete, the former British Officer would take his proceeds and await voyage back to England. Slight chipping along the left edge; still very good condition.

        De la Nouvelle Jérusalem et de sa doctrine céleste ; d'après ce qu'on entendu au ciel. Précédé d'une breve dissertation touchant le nouveau ciel et la nouvelle terre.

      Imprimé et vendu par R. Hawes 1782 - - Imprimé et vendu par R. Hawes, Londres _1782, In-8 (12,5x21,7cm), xx, 211pp., relié. - Edition originale française, rare, après la première parue à Londres en latin en 1758. Plein veau blond marbré et glacé d'époque. Dos lisse orné à la grotesque. Pièce de titre en maroquin rouge. Mors supérieur fendu en tête sur 8 cm. Mors inférieur fendu en tête et queue. Bien que cette oeuvre soit la plus célèbre de son auteur, en raison de son titre dont plusieurs églises ont pris le nom symbolique, elle n'est pas la première du genre et se trouve même être une réduction des Arcanes célestes, mais alors que les Arcanes sont une exégèse de la Genèse, La Nouvelle Jérusalem en est une de versets de L'Apocalypse de Saint Jean, dans laquelle Swedenborg, comme dans ses autres ouvrages livre une vision ultra rationnelle de la métaphysique et de la spiritualité. Scientifique de renom, Swedenborg connait une crise mystique à l'âge de 55 ans. Dieu lui parle et lui permet de communiquer avec les anges : "Je suis le Seigneur, Créateur et Rédempteur; je t&#146;ai choisi pour faire connaître aux hommes le sens intérieur et spirituel des Saintes-Écritures. Je te dicterai tout ce que tu devras écrire." L'auteur connaîtra ainsi plusieurs visions qu'il transcrit dans ses livres. Swedenborg ne rompt nullement avec les doctrines de Luther dont il est issu mais il fonde la relation avec Dieu sur l'amour, et il donne une grande importance aux anges qui sont le fondement de l'existence du bien et du mal et à l'âme qui est une émanation de la divinité. Il fut rapidement considéré comme un génie universel, en atteste l'influence considérable qu'il eut, notamment en France sur les écrivains de la génération romantique, Balzac, qui le cite abondamment, et qui puisera en lui des aliments à sa théorie du désir, Baudelaire, Cazotte et ailleurs chez William Blake, Jung. et même au Japon, dans le livre : Le bouddha du nord. Ex-libris. Tampon Ernest Chausson. Grand compositeur et autodidacte, mort à 40 ans et qui a laissé des oeuvres impérissables dans le domaine notamment de la musique de chambre, dans le sillage d'un wagnérisme à la française, pénétrées d'une profonde douleur et mélancolie. xx, 211pp. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      London - Buckland, Strahan,Rivington, Rivington, Calson, Longman, Field, Dilly, Robinson, Flexney, and Goldsmith8.5 by 5.5; [x]3, 1782. London - Buckland, Strahan,Rivington, Rivington, Calson, Longman, Field, Dilly, Robinson, Flexney, and Goldsmith8.5 by 5.5; [x]366pp., 1782 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A lovely posthumous publication of Watts&#39;s tract on the reading, writing, and interpretation of theological texts. Isaac Watts (1674-1748) was educated at the Thomas Rowe academy in London before undertaking a period of self-directed study, after which he became tutor to John Hartropp, Bt. , to whom this work is dedicated. Watts was a dissenter for his entire life; he grew up visiting a series of houses occupied by prominent evangelicals, and presided over the transformation of his Independentchapel in Mark Lane (and later at St. Mary Axe) into a thriving centre of evangelical dissent. As such, Logick suggests that students of theological texts should foster rational reflection and resist dogmatism in their approach to the scriptures. Condition: Externally in a recent cloth binding with new endpapers. Internally, good though dusty, some minor foxing. Top margin of title-page tornaway; edges of first leaves nibbled, and small pieces of bottom outer margin of numerous leaves throughout the volume torn off; occasional marks in margin; last page is an advertisement with John Whilley in old, fading ink. Overall: GOOD..

        Histoire du Chevalier des Grieux, et de Manon Lescaut. Volume One

      London, 1782. London, 1782 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A late eighteenth century French edition of Abbe Prevost&#39;s controversial novel. Printed in London, as this work was banned in France at the time. Volume One only. One volume of two. In French. From the Bibliotheque Amusante series. With the bookplate of Dr Kismartony Henrik to the front pastedown. Antoine Francois Prevost, 1697 1763, usually known as the Abbe Prevost, was a French author and novelist. During his residence at the Hague, Prevost engaged on a translation of De Thou&#39;s Historia, and, relying on the popularity of his first book, published at Amsterdam a Suite in three volumes, forming volumes v to vii of the original Memoires et aventures dun homme de qualite. The seventh volume contained the famous Manon Lescaut, separately published in Paris in 1731 as Histoire du Chevalier des Grieux et de Manon Lescaut. It was banned in France on publication, although the book was popular, being published in pirated copies. In a subsequent 1753 edition, the Abbe Prevost toned down some scandalous details and injected more moralizing disclaimers. Condition: The binding is tight and firm. The front joint is slightly cracked, and the front inner hinge is slightly strained, with the front free-endpaper starting to come away. There is slight edgewear and rubbing, with some discolouration, to the extremities. Internally the pages are generally clean and bright, with only the very occasional isolated spot or mark. There are light tidemarks to the lower sections of the first five leaves. Overall the condition is good, with a very good interior..
