Fresnoy, Charles Alphonse du.
1783. Printed by A. Ward, and sold by J. Dodsley, T. Cadell, [et al.]: York, 1783. 4to, contemporary full speckled calf, backstrip decorated in gilt, gilt-lettered black morocco backstrip label. [iii]-xix, [iii], 213, [1(errata)], [1(ads)] pp. Bookplates of Ham Court and Harrison Hayford. Rubbed, old hinge repairs, lacking half-title, minor worming at gutter of preliminary leaves, occasional foxing; a very respectable association copy. § First Edition of this translation. Charles Alphonse du Fresnoy ( 1611-1665) had a modestly successful career as a painter but is best remembered for his Latin poem De arte graphica, which he wrote while studying art in Italy and which was first published in Paris in 1684 by his friend and fellow -artist Pierre Mignard. As EB 11 states, the work "embodied his observations on the art of painting; it may be termed a critical treatise on the practice of the art with general advice to students. The precepts are sound according to the standard of his time; the poetical merits slender enough." The poem was soon translated into French; the elderly John Dryden later rendered it in English prose. William Mason (1725-1797), poet and crony of Thomas Gray and Horace Walpole, labored for some years on this new version in English heroic couplets. This edition includes a poetic dedication from Mason to Sir Joshua Reynolds (who had urged him to revise and publish the work), an interesting critical preface by Mason, a brief biography of Du Fresnoy by Thomas Birch, the poem itself in both English and Latin, copious notes by Mason and Reynolds, some comments b … [Click Below for Full Description]

A second part of the catalogue appeared in 1788, in 6 volumes. Jonathan Hill notes of one of his sets: "the celebrated catalogue of the first part of the most important book and manuscript collection of the 18th century. The catalogue, prepared by De Bure and Van Praet, contains MSS., noteworthy incunabula, and books printed on vellum or large paper. Their descriptions influenced French and English book collectors and bibliographers for several generations. The sale, consisting of 5668 lots, made the enormous sum of 464,677 liv. 8 s. "The manuscripts constitute an amazing collection of early French poetry and romances."-Taylor, Book Catalogues, p. 248... Brunet, II, 554. Peignot, pp. 128-29. Pollard & Ehrman no. 297.".

LE CLERC, Nicolas-Gabriel.
1783. Atlas volume only (494 × 328 mm), without the six 4to volumes of text; 37 engraved plates, most folding, after Mikhail Makhaev, and 16 letterpress tables; lacking plate no. 19 (‘La ville de Cazan’); some light unobtrusive spotting, paper repair to pl. 11, a few small marginal dampstains to plates; early nineteenth-century English half calf, spine lettered ‘Russia’ in gilt, marbled paper sides, rubbed with some wear to extremities; bookplate of A. G. Cross to front pastedown. The atlas volume for Le Clerc’s sweeping, encyclopaedic view of eighteenth-century Russia, including over a dozen stunning views of St Petersburg and its surroundings based on earlier views by Mikhail Makhaev (1718–1770; see Gollerbakh, Istoriia graviury v Rossii, p. 54), some of the earliest accurate representations of the Russian capital. ‘Unlike some of the early maps of the city, which are idealistic projections into the future, Makhaev’s views—some of which come in two parts—are considered the earliest faithful documentation of eighteenth-century St. Petersburg and have proved useful in architectural restoration campaigns’ (Vincent Giroud, St. Petersburg: A Portrait of a Great City, Beinecke Library exhibition catalogue, 2003, p. 18). Nicolas-Gabriel Le Clerc (1726–1798) was a diplomat, historian, and doctor with close ties to both the French and Russian aristocracy, and whose Histoire physique was born out of over twenty years living and practising medicine in Russia. The work was beautifully produced and well-received, but ruffled feathers in high places: ‘Dans son ouvrage Le Clerc stigmati … [Click Below for Full Description]

Upsala, Johan Edman, 1783. 8vo. In contemporary half calf with five raised bands, spine with gilt lettering and ornamentation. Ex-libris pasted on to pasted down front end-paper. Light wear to extremities, internally fine and clean. (24), 366, (10) pp. ¶ First Swedish translation of the official account of Cook's second voyage and Georg Forster's unofficial Voyage round the World.<br><br>"Cook earned his place in history by opening up the Pacific to western civilization and by the foundation of British Australia. The world was given for the first time an essentially complete knowledge of the Pacific Ocean and Australia, and Cook proved once and for all that there was no great southern continent, as had always been believed. He also suggested the existence of antarctic land in the southern ice ring, a fact which was not proved until the explorations of the nineteenth century" (Printing and the Mind of Man p.135). <br><br>"The success of Cook's first voyage led the Admiralty to send him on a second expedition, described in the present work, which was to circumnavigate the globe as far south as possible in search of any southern continents. The men of this expedition became the first to cross the Antarctic Circle. Further visits were made to New Zealand, and on two great sweeps Cook made an astonishing series of discoveries and rediscoveries including Easter Island, the Marquesas, Tahiti and the Society Islands, Niue, the Tonga Islands, the New Hebrides, New Caledonia, Norfolk Island, […] Cook discovered and charted South Georgia, after which he called at Cape Town, St. Helena … [Click Below for Full Description]

Mirabeau, Honore-Gabriel Riqueti, Comte de
"Rome" (actually Neuchatel, Switzerland): "De l'Imprimerie du Vatican" (Francois Mallet), 1783. First Edition. First edition. iv, 192 pp. Original red boards, spine lettered in gilt. Very Good with light wear to boards and foxing. British publisher, novelist, book collector and bibliographer Michael Sadleir's copy with his small bookplate on paste down. A rare work of erotica, written in prison in Paris while the author was sentenced to die for "abduction and seduction." Erika Delbecque, Special Collections Librarian at University of Reading writes of this book: Organised by different sexual practices and perversions into eleven chapters, including topics such as bestiality ('Béhéma'), female homosexuality ('L'Anandryne') and nymphomania ('La Linguanmanie'), it purports to offer a history of human sexual behaviour. Mirabeau draws on quotes from the Bible and ancient sources to provide historical examples of each sexual practice, and attacks the corruption of the clergy and the aristocracy in the process. Very Good.

COOK, James.) LEDYARD, John.
Hartford: Nathaniel Patten, 1783. Octavo (167 x 112 mm). Contemporary sheep, titles to red morocco label to spine in blind, spine in compartments with raised bands. Housed in a custom orange morocco solander box, spine lettered and tooled in gilt. Early inscription to front free endpaper, "Property of Chichester Library No. 62", annotated below in a second hand "No 62 6J". Front board a little bowed, scuffs and wear to covers, marks and foxing to contents; a very good copy. First edition of this notable Cook rarity—the first American account of Cook's third voyage, and the first American book to describe Hawaii, which preceded publication of the official London account by more than a year—presented here in an appealing plain trade binding of the period. "This was not only the first American book on the Northwest coast [of America], but also probably the first American book on Hawaii" (Streeter). Stab holes are visible at the majority of gatherings, and Forbes notes that: "The book was first issued in parts with blue grey part wrappers as follows: Part I, pages 1-80 [as our copy]; Part II, pages 81-160; Part III, pages 161-208" and goes on to say that "not all copies were first issued thus in their entirety. Copies may in fact have only the first and second parts of the text, which show evidence of a part issue". This copy, like virtually all others, does not have the rare map and it is now accepted that it was not generally issued; a census of copies at auction with the map, drawn up by PBA Galleries in 2008, lists only three: George Brinley (1879), William C.

ELLIS, William.
London: G. Robinson; J. Sewell; and J. Debrett, 1783. 2 volumes, octavo (213 x 130 mm). Contemporary mottled calf sometime neatly rebacked with the original smooth spines laid down, corners refurbished, decorative gilt spines, dark red and green morocco twin labels, sides with gilt lozenge-and-dot roll border, "Gloster pattern" marbled endpapers. Contemporary octagonal ticket of the London stationer and bookbinder James Black, his address given as 150 Leadenhall Street (Ramsden listing him but giving the address as 9 York Street, Covent Garden); Exeter Working Papers in Book History note this as the address of his ?brother, Alexander Black, in 1799. Covers lightly rubbed and with a few abrasions, a little wear to head and tail of spines, scattered foxing, closed-tear across leaf M8 neatly repaired, old glue stains at N8 verso and O1 recto. An attractive set. Bound without half-titles. Engraved folding chart showing the tracks of Resolution and Discovery and 21 engraved plates by Scott, Walker, Heath and Collyer after Ellis. Second edition, following the first of the preceding year. Ellis's narrative predates the official account of Cook's last voyage by two years, breaching the Admiralty's prohibition on any unauthorized accounts. However, finding himself in straitened circumstances Ellis decided to follow the lead of John Rickman, second lieutenant on the Discovery, whose Journal of Captain Cook's Last Voyage appeared in 1781, and sold his version to a London bookseller, in this case George Robinson, one of the leading publishers of the day.

Broadside; Taxation; Massachusetts
1783. A Massachusetts Tax to Defray the Cost of the Revolutionary War [Broadside]. [Taxation]. [Massachusetts]. Commonwealth of Massachusetts. (Tax No 3.). Boston, June, 1783. 16" x 10" broadside, amount of assessed tax and date added in manuscript by Thomas Ivers, treasurer and receiver-general of Massachusetts, his signature, dated October 1, 1783, below text. Mounted on linen, lightly browned, some edgewear, sections lacking from corners and along fold lines with minor loss to text. A rare item. ,000. * This broadside is, in effect, a warrant to collect unpaid taxes. In this particular case, an amount of four pounds and four shillings to be collected by the constable or collector in the town of Leverett, Massachusetts. According to Ford, this broadside was printed in June of 1783, at a time when the Commonwealth was trying to pay down expenses associated with the war. Financial hardship from the war would persist long after the conflict with Great Britain ended, and the Commonwealth applied sustained pressure to collect revenue from its cities and towns. Interestingly, this prophetic broadside foretells Shays's Rebellion, in that just three years later perceived economic and taxation inequities prompted rural central and western Massachusetts such as Leverett to rise up in a series of historic protests against the Commonwealth. No copies listed on OCLC. Ford, Broadsides & Ballads &c. Printed in Massachusetts 1639-1800 2371.
