        Viage desde Buenos Aires hasta la Asuncion, Corrientes, con observaciones astronómicas

      Exceptional journal of the voyage of exploration performed by Felix de Azara from Buenos Aires to Paraguay, evidently the field work used to write his opus magnum Voyages dans l'Amérique Méridionale depuis 1781 jusqu'en 1801, to-date a foundation book to any library with an interest in the region; unique, we were unable to find any other manuscripts of this text in any public institution. Azara (1746 - 1811) was a Spanish military engineer, explorer, anthropologist, and cartographer. Following the signing of the Treaty of San Idelfonso (1777) between Spain and Portugal some trouble ensued over the Rio de la Plata; two delegations were appointed to solve the matter: Azara was commissioned for the Spanish. In 1781 Azara travelled to South America, first Brazil and then Uruguay, under the commission of surveying the boundaries. A Portuguese delegation never arrived, and Azara ended up staying in the region until 1801. He decided to make good use of his time there studying and exploring, he decided to accurantely map the region, state of previous Jesuit missions, population, ehtonography, etc., he also studied the natural history, and wrote observations on the flora and fauna along the border of Argentina, Brazil, and Paraguay. To this effect he travelled extensively, the manuscript here offered being a most valuable record of his expeditions. Arguably his most valued work was the Voyages dans l'Amérique Méridionale depuis 1781 jusqu'en 1801 (1809), which contains a geographic, political, and historical description of Paraguay and of the River Plate countries, the Jesuit establishments in the region, and the ethnography of the people who inhabit them. Azara was very interested in the role played by the Jesuits, their influence, foundations of towns, Reductions, and teaching of the natives. Overall, he is considered the most qualified writer on the history, costumes, manners and history of Argentina and Paraguay up to that date. This manuscript constitutes a valuable link to his observations and experiences, as well as to the history of the limits between Portuguese and Spanish possessions in South America. The manuscript begins with a note of presentation to the other comissaries appointed for the demarcation of limits "Traslado a V.S. antecedente resolucion para su inteligencia y de los demas Comisarios de la Demarcacion de Limites... Montevideo 14 de Oct[ubre] de 1782. Don Juan Jph de Vertiz. Al Capitan de Navio Don Jsp Varela". It offers a broad survey of the region between Buenos Aires and Asuncion. His observations were of great geographical value at the time - distance travelled by horse and foot, etc.-, also his notes on the indigenous population, wildlife and natural history. His observations also relate to the defense against the frequent attacks of the Indians: "Santa Fe and Vera Cruz have two parishes, one Spanish and one of natural castes. From the priest I know that there are 1,500 souls of Spanish descent and that Santa Fe could have 5,000 souls. In my review and inspection of the militia, this year there were 270 armed men, as part of the troops that fought against the frequent invasion of Indians from El Chaco" (p.15). And way of life: "On the ravine, past the river, sits the well situated town of Santa Lucia with a brick church, which has a good position in the town. There are thirty five indian families mainly 'Avipones', the women spin the thread and the men weave. The town has three estancias (ranches) with twelve thousand cattle heads; those that they do not consume are sold to the Paraguayan and Guarani missions. They live as a community and a Franciscan helps on the spiritual aspects of life. He has requested that the Indians be distributed so they might live like the Spanish." (p.29). Although no date of completion of the manuscript is given, one part -relating to the boundaries- is dated October 1782; and on pp. 45, Azara refers to a happening in 1784, allowing us to date it after that. It is a working manuscript, containing different types of paper, sizes, and ink; thus very likely his working manuscript during the journey. Provenance: the manuscript was sold in Sotheby´s, 1964, for 392 u$s, The Celebrated collection of Latin Americana, The property of Señor Alberto Dodero, to Maggs "The author describes his daily experiences, the terrain passed through, the vegetation, insect pests, villages, larger centres such as Santa Fé and Corrientes, and his reception by the inhabitants or local officials. Writing from Asuncion 27 February 1784 he reports the completion of his mission, to settle the Spanish-Portuguese frontier between the Parana and Paraguay rivers. The astronomical observations are made from a number of points between 5 May 1784 and 23 May 1787" (auction catalogue description). Palau, 20990, (Azara, Felix de, Viajes ineditos de D. Felix de Azara desde Santa Fe a la Asuncion, al interior del Paraguay; Buenos Aires, 1873). Descripcion o historia del Paraguay (Madrid, 1847), earlier published as Voyages dans l´Amerique meridionale, 1809 (Palau, 20975).

        Paris in miniature: taken from the French picture at full length, entituled Tableau de Paris. Interspersed with remarks and anecdotes. Together with a preface and a postface. By an English Limner.

      London: printed for G. Kearsly. 1782. 8vo., (6) + 170 + (2)pp., including the final advertisement leaf, a very little foxing at beginning and end, well bound in 19th century half calf over marbled boards, skilfully rebacked to match, spine gilt with raised bands and label. A very good copy. First edition in English. A translation by J.P. Macmahon of the French text by Louis Sébastien Mercier (1740-1814), the French dramatist, writer and author of his famous Utopian novel, L'an 2440> (1770). His portrait of pre-Revolutionary Paris is a marvellous collection of observations on Parisian society, both high and low. Mercier's keen observations on his surroundings and the journalistic feel of his writing meant that his work remained riveting despite the nature of its composition. 'There is no better writer to consult if one wants to get some idea of how Paris looked, sounded, smelled, and felt on the eve of the Revolution.' [Robert Darnton, The forbidden best-sellers of Pre-Revolutionary France.> New York, 1996.]. And so, here there are vivid vignettes of such subjects as chimneys, furnished apartments, hackney coaches, police runners, prisons, executioner, retailers of news, coffee houses, filles de joye, marriageable girls, Sundays and holidays, beggars, charitable donations, physicians, theatres, opera girls, &c. &c.

        Considérations sur le gouvernement ancien et présent de la France - Mizrim ou le sage à la cour

      Amsterdam, Marc-Michel Rey, 1765 et Neuchâtel, Société typographique, 1782, in-8, 2 ouvrages en un volume, XIV-[2]-328 pp. et IV-148 pp, plein veau marbré de l'époque, dos à 5 nerfs orné, tranches et gardes marbrées (accidents aux coiffes et coins, mors fendus), Deux éditions originales d'ouvrage de politique : un traité théorique et un conte philosophique. Le marquis d'Argenson, après avoir comparé les "effets de l'Aristocratie et de la Démocratie chez les nations étrangères" et montré les progrès démocratiques que connut la France tout au long de son histoire, propose d'étendre la démocratie en France, tout en conservant un régime monarchique, par la mise en place d'une décentralisation reposant sur une répartition des pouvoirs entre des officiers royaux, des intendants de département, et des magistrats populaires et municipaux disposant d'une autonomie accrue. L'apologue de Perreau, dont l'édition originale est peu courante, conjugue un idéal chimérique d'une royauté pleine de bonté et une institution du jeune prince rendue possible et profitable grâce à un simple homme du peuple, Mizrim. Ce groupement fortuit permet de disposer des deux formes littéraires majeures que développèrent en France les penseurs politiques du XVIIIe siècle : la fable et la rhétorique argumentative. Exemplaire à grandes marges. Intérieur propre.

        Allgemeiner Zoll-Tarif für alle Häfen und Grenz-Zollämter des Russischen Reichs, außer Astrachan, Orenburg und Sibirien. Verfertiget in der Kommerz-Kommission im Jahre 1782

      104; 56 pp. Two parts in one vol. 8vo, cont. half-calf & speckled boards, flat spine, red leather lettering piece on spine. St. Petersburg: 1782. First edition and a rare and fascinating document. The first and far larger part lists the goods entering Russia and the taxes imposed upon them. The variety of merchandise is enormous: from foodstuffs to medicines to textiles to Chinese export porcelain to iron to dyeing materials to feathers to various kinds of papers to varieties of salts to shoes to many kinds of wines (and I could go on and on and on). The taxation tariffs were promulgated by Catherine II on 27 September 1782. The smaller second part lists Russia's exports; they are mainly agricultural products and leave the country mostly duty free. This copy has been interleaved throughout. A contemporary hand has added many notes regarding the imports. Fine copy. WorldCat lists no copy in North America.

Papst Pius VI. konnte sich auf politischem Gebiet "im Abwehrkampf gegen die staatskirchlichen Ansprüche des aufgeklärten Absolutismus, die episkopalistischen und jansenistischen Strömungen der Zeit, gegen die Freimaurer und die Auswirkungen der Französischen Revolution nur wenig behaupten. Den staatskirchlichen Reformeifer Josephs II. .zu dem uneingeschränkte religiöse Toleranz, die Beschneidung päpstlicher Eingriffe in die geistl.

Mercier's keen observations on his surroundings and the journalistic feel of his writing meant that his work remained riveting despite the nature of its composition. 'There is no better writer to consult if one wants to get some idea of how Paris looked, sounded, smelled, and felt on the eve of the Revolution.' [Robert Darnton, The forbidden best-sellers of Pre-Revolutionary France.> New York, 1996.]. And so, here there are vivid vignettes of such subjects as chimneys, furnished apartments, hackney coaches, police runners, prisons, executioner, retailers of news, coffee houses, filles de joye, marriageable girls, Sundays and holidays, beggars, charitable donations, physicians, theatres, opera girls, &c. &c.

Manasseh Dawes (d. 1829), Inner Temple barrister and writer on political and legal subjects, seems not to have practised long at the bar, his obituarist noting that he had lived 'in a very retired manner' for the past 36 years. Dawes 'sided with the Whigs on the law of libels, publishing in 1785 two articles commenting on the Shipley case: England's alarm, or, The prevailing doctrine of libels and deformity of the doctrine of libels>. His Essay on Intellectual Liberty and Tolerance> (1780) criticized Jeremy Bentham's A Fragment on Government>, and he defended the legal writer Sir William Blackstone against Bentham. He also intervened (1780) in the polemic between Joseph Priestley and Richard Price. In 1814 came Introduction to a Knowledge of the Law on Real Estates>, followed in 1818 by Epitome of Landed Property>.' [Hugh Mooney in ODNB]. But it was his Essay on crimes and punishments> that is his most enduring legacy. 'Of all the subjects that have ever been written upon', he declares in the Preface, 'there is not one of them of more importance to the welfare of man, as an individual, or to society, as a body, than that of crimes and punishments'.

Folio and 4to. The petition, accompanying transcriptions and letters written in Portuguese. In an old brown paper folder and with a typescript list of the contents inserted.

      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. Extensive primary source material, especially concerning iron mining and iron works in Brazil and Portugal.

        Dernier Voyage du Capitaine Cook autour du monde

      où se trouvent les circonstances de sa mort, publié en allemand par Henri Zimmermann témoin oculaire, & traduit avec un abrégé de la vie de ce navigateur célèbre, & des notes. Berne : Nouvelle Société Typographique, 1782. Octavo, twentieth century half calf over marbled boards with contrasting morocco title label, lettered in gilt, later endpapers, pp. xvi, 200, a very good, clean copy. The first French edition of one of the rarest accounts of Cook's voyages, written from a first-hand perspective by Zimmermann, who sailed on the third voyage. Heinrich Zimmermann was born near Speyer on the Rhine in 1741 and travelled through Europe looking for work from an early age, living in Geneva, Lyon and Paris before arriving in London in 1776. He worked in various trades during the journey, mainly relating to brass-making (he poured molten metals to craft bells in Paris), but in London worked in a sugar-refining factory, where the raw ingredient was arriving from distant colonies overseas. He learned of plans to search for a northwest passage from Asia to Europe being commanded by the then famous circumnavigator Cook, and signed on as coxswain. Against explicit British Admiralty orders, he kept a small notebook where he recorded his observations during the voyage, written partly in German shorthand in case it was discovered. The expedition sailed to the South Seas, and returned Omai to his home in Tahiti. (Omai had spent two years in England after joining Cook's second voyage). They visited the islands of Hawaii in 1788, becoming the first Europeans to do so, and then sailed up to the Bering Strait in Alaska in an effort to explore the possibility of a passage to Europe. The voyage returned to Hawaii where Cook met with his untimely death, and under the command of Clerke they sailed back to England. The results of the expedition were a military secret, closely guarded by the English naval officers, and Zimmermann knew that if he published his report it would cause an uproar. In the introduction he explains that while some of the secrets of the expedition do belong rightfully to Great Britain, he was not privy to these, and the details which he affords the reader in his account are simply truthful descriptions of the exotic lands he has visited. It is his duty to fellow seamen that he inform them of what lies on the far side of the world. Furthermore, Zimmermann presents, from a seaman's perspective, his appreciation of the personal qualities of Cook as a commander and as a man, which provides a valuable comparison with the official account. Writing on Zimmermann, Holmes says: 'Both French editions are of great rarity and interest'; Davidson comments: 'It is hard to predict the realization price for a copy if one were to come into the open market, as competition between collectors would be very keen'. Beddie 1629, Forbes 47, Holmes 44; Kroepelien 1363 Provenance: Justin Godart (1871-1956), French politician, Lyon, his bookplate to front pastedown; John Howell, bookseller, San Francisco, his printed description c.1980 loosely enclosed.
