        Observations on the Passage to India through Egypt,

      London: for W. Faden, J. Robson, and R. Sewell, , 1783. and across the Great Desert; with Occasional Remarks on the adjacent Countries, and also Sketches of the different Routes: By … Colonel in the Services of the Hon. East India Company. Quarto (250 × 197 mm). Attractive recent half calf on marbled boards to style by Trevor Lloyd, red morocco label, urn device gilt to the compartments. 2 engraved folding maps. List of errata verso of dedication leaf struck through and the listed errors corrected in ink in a contemporary hand, lightly browned, some spotting, but overall a very good copy. First edition. Capper was educated at Harrow and joined the army of the East India Company "in His Majesty's Train of Artillery in the East Indies, first as a soldier cadet and later as an officer. He was then for a while a free merchant in Bengal before becoming in 1768 a captain in the Madras army and in 1769 senior writer for the presidency of Bengal … [later] appointed the East India Company's commissary-general upon the coast of Coromandel" (ODNB). In early 1777 he was sent home with despatches, remaining in England until the autumn of 1778 when, "to explore the feasibility of opening a new channel for transmitting intelligence between Europe and India, he returned to Madras by way of Aleppo, the Arabian desert, and Basrah." The present work contains details of his journey from India to England in early 1777, via Ceylon and Suez, and his return journey in 1778-9. Given more or less in journal form, it is full of fascinating details of local life, offering numerous hints for the traveller in the region. As was so often the case, Capper felt himself badly treated by John Company, issuing a lengthy memorial detailing the abuses of the company's lax and corrupt civilian management in India. "Despite this he resumed his career in India in 1785, when he became comptroller-general of the army and fortification accompts on the coast of Coromandel, charged with reducing expenditure in Madras. He resigned in 1791 and returned to Britain. The East India Company twice thereafter refused him a pension." He later made a name for himself as a meteorologist, and as a local philanthropist in south Wales where he settled.

      Liege. 1783. - xii,235,[1]pp. Without the ten page supplement, which is not always present. Half title. Handsomely bound in contemporary French mottled calf, raised bands, spine richly gilt, gilt morocco label. Light shelf wear. Quite clean internally. A near fine copy. In a cloth chemise and slipcase, gilt leather label. A firsthand account of the Revolution, by a little- known but fascinating French soldier of fortune who fought for the British. A disputatious and critical man, Joly de St. Valier condemns the British conduct of the war, especially in naval matters, but also heaps some scorn on the French and De Grasse. The ten-page supplement, not included here, was issued separately and is found in only a few copies of the work. It was likely printed later, and continues Joly's war of words with Sir Joseph Yorke, former British Ambassador at the Hague, who was quite involved in British naval strategy during the war. A very rare work on the market, with much important firsthand material on the military history of the American Revolution. The Streeter copy realized $450 in 1967. SABIN 36428. HOWES J182, "aa."

        Copper Engraved View of Novgorod] Vue de la Ville de Novogorod.

      Paris 1783 - [Paris, 1783]. Copper engraving ca. 21,5x32 cm (ca. 8 ¾ x 12 ½ in). Dessine par Mr. le Chr. De Lespinasse, Dirigé par Neé, Gravé par Niquet. A near fine print. Plate 13 from the Atlas to Nicolas Le Clerc's "Histoire Physique, Morale, Civile et Politique de la Russie Ancienne" (Paris and Versailles: Froullé and Blaizot, 1783-1794; 6 vols. and atlas). Engraved by Claud Niquet under guidance of François Denis Neé, the view shows a spectacular panorama of Novgorod laying on the banks of the Volkhov River, with the walls and ramparts of the Novgorod Kremlin and numerous churches; fishermen and fishing boats are seen in the foreground. "The atlas volume to Le Clerc's great work is particularly notable for its fine panoramic views of towns and palaces by Auvray, Fessard, Niquet and Née after Louis-Nicolas de Lespinasse. Le Clerc first visited Russia in his profession as doctor in 1759, and in 1769 he received several important appointments in Moscow, giving him the opportunity to correlate many rare and almost unknown historical sources. The publication of this work prompted Catherine II to commission a riposte: Ivan Nikitich Boltin's 2 volume Notes on the History of Ancient and Modern Russia (St. Petersburg, 1788)" (Christie's); Brunet III, 916; Cohen-de Ricci 613.

Illustrée de nombreux tableaux, d'une grande planche dépliante figurant la généalogie blasonnée des Desplanques, des figures de blason in-texte, et particularité notable de ce livre, 15 portraits en médaillon "au physionotrace" (procédé inventé par Louis Chrétien et developpé par Edmé Quenedey dans le genre de la gravure au lavis dont on retrouve les signatures au bas des portraits avec la date et le lieu de leurs réalisations).

        Encyclopédie méthodique. Marine

      Paris., 1783; 1786; 1787.. b/w engraved plates, many double page or folding. This is the “Marine” section of Pancoucke’s massive 200-plus volume encyclopedia, which itself was an expanded version of Diderot’s 27 volume effort. It includes a plate volume of 175 engravings showing all phases of marine technology - from cartography to rope making. The three text volumes are arranged alphabetically by topic, and discuss such things as shipbuilding, docks, waterfront fortifications, flags, sails, signaling methods, naval strategy, and anchor forging. These were products of the Enlightenment - attempts to categorize and collect all knowledge. As such, Pancoucke’s Encyclopédie Méthodique is an up to date compendium of everything that was known about marine technology in 1780. It is of great historical value. This set is in brilliant condition, with pages crisp. clean and untrimmed, and engravings sharp and clean, with no foxing or offsetting. Bound in 19th century half calf over marbled boards.

Creech, in Edinburgh, London 1783 - First edition, 2 vols., 4to, pp. viii, 496; [4], 550, [17] index; engraved frontispiece portrait; full contemporary calf, neatly rebacked in red and black morocco labels on gilt-decorated spines; some foxing, very good and sound. Hugh Blair (1718-1800) the famed Scots divine and professor of rhetoric was very successful with this book which "could boast ten editions in England between 1783 and 1806, not to mention the American reissues and one French (1797), one Italian (1801), and one Spanish (1816) version." (Aarsleff). He was a friend of Hume and Adam Smith, the latter of whose lectures inspired Blair in this endeavour.

      Paris: : Chez l’auteur,, 1783.. Full Calf. Very Good. 4to (27.0 x 20.5 cm), Contemporary decorative calf with red morocco label. Collation: [6] pp. + 6 [i.e. 5], 6, 6, 10 (folded) plates. The book is bound in a decorative, mottled calf French binding of the period. The spine has raised bands and floral gilt decorations in panels, with red morocco label in upper panel. The Ends of spines and corners show some wear. There is worming spot on front cover near fore edge with light scuffing to boards, rubbed corners. All of the plates are hand colored in a fine contemporary hand and paper repair to the folding plates along the spine. There are some small stains on a few plates near the tab, affecting the borders. The first 6 pages contain 4 engraved pages of text. The twenty-seven (27) engraved plates depict garden designs of English and Chinese style with a scale of garden designs are hand colored. This is the second volume of 4 in a series of works, which include the author’s Recueil de jardinage (1783), and, Recueil de jardins. Anglos-chinois (1787). The missing first plate is absent in all extant library copies, indicating it was not bound in all copies, evidenced by an uncolored first plate in the copy of the book in the Bibliotheque Nationale, Paris. & The engraved colored plates in the three “Cayer” of 17 plates are excellent examples of English and Chinese gardens and give detail designs of gardens while the remaining 10 folding plates provide “Dispositions” of gardens with with buildings or “Batiments” and other garden structures. Penseron was a student of Jacques Francois Blondel, one of France’s great architects. Penseron designed and engraved all the plates which illustrate his mastery of engraving and beautiful design and coloring to represent the rich and wonderful survey of gardening in France in the second half of the 18th century when English and Chinese gardens were en vogue. Any copy of Panseron’s excellent treatise on English and Chinese garden design is very scarce. (Only a few libraries have this 2nd volume and the Institut national d'histoire de l'art. Collections Jacques Doucet. Bibliothèque. Paris has the complete series of 4 volumes) Excellent hand colored engravings of proposed garden designs by Panseron

Excelente encuadernación, plena piel de época, tejuelo, hierros, lomo cuajado con dorados, planos decorados enmarcando un medallón negro en el centro, con la Cruz de Malta, ruedas doradas en cantos, cortes jaspeados. Muy buen ejemplar. Grueso volumen que recoge tres títulos: el Códice de la Orden Militar Gerosolimitano (o de Malta), los Privilegios de la religión de San Juan Gerosolimitano, y, finalmente, el índice al mencionado Codice. El Codigo de Rohan es considerado el máximo ordenamiento jurídico de la Orden, pues contiene los estatutos y ordenes promulgadas en el Capítulo General de 1776, los Ceremoniales que deben observarse, los reglamentos para conservar las pertenencias de la Orden en Francia, y los privilegios concedidos a la Orden por parte de los Pontífices. El Código fue propiciado por el Gran Maestre Emmanuel de Rohan, procedente de una rica e influyente familia francesa, que ejerció como Gran Maestre desde 1775 a 1797, y durante su mandato hizo todo lo posible para salvar la Orden del inicio de su decadencia, sobretodo en Francia, donde después de la Revolución francesa fue despojada de sus propiedades y proscrita a la isla de Malta. El codice contiene una única y espléndida lámina plegada que es, precisamente, el retrato del Gran Maestre Rohan, esculpida por Amago, en Roma, en 1782. Órdenes militares. Historia de Francia. Military orders. History of France.

        Observations on Emetic Tartar

      [Wotton-under-Edge: J. Bence, 1783?]. First edition, first issue, 8vo, 16pp., Signature: (A8 ) printed on recto only, first leaf signed A, drop-head title, expertly bound in period style half half, within a custom-made drop-box. An unrecorded first issue of Jenner's first publication. This first issue is not noted in LeFanu's Bibliography of Edward Jenner, nor are any copies held by libraries worldwide. However, Copac does list a single copy (this present copy) but without assigning any authorship to Jenner. A comparison with the "Cursory Observations on Emetic Tartar", previously thought to be the first edition (see LeFanu, 3), reveals many corrections and additional text have been added to the "Cursory". Also, on comparing the two issues it is clear from the type setting that both were printed by J. Bence of Wotton-under-Edge. "Jenner's first pamphlet, without date or author's name, was printed by the bookseller at Wootton-under-Edge. He was dissatisfied with the preparations of some medicines in common use and made experiments, in particular to obtain a preparation of emetic tartar which would be 'regular in strength and uniform in operation'. The pamphlet was printed in the autumn of 1783, for Hunter acknowledged it in November 'I received your little publication with the Tart. Emet. I have a great deal to say about it... I approve of it much and will do all in my power to promote the sale... I would desire you to burn your book, for you will have all the world making it', and he wrote again to the same purpose a month or two later. Jenner preferred to make his work freely available. He continued to experiment and Hunter wrote to him in May 1784 'I wish you would draw out the process for making the tartar emetic. The physicians that I have given it to speak well of it as a more certain medicine than the other', and he suggested that Jenner should send an account of the process to his Society for the Improvement of Medical and Chirurgical Knowledge. Jenner accordingly described his method of obtaining pure emetic tartar crystals; this paper, with his letter of 5 February, was read to the Society on 4 June 1784 but not published until 1793. Jenner also experimented from about 1790 with the application of emetic tartar ointment as a counterirritant, and published an account of his results in 1822." (LaFanu). This first issue is of the highest rarity, with no other copy being located. Of the 'Cursory' issue ESTC and Copac locates just 3 copies (British Library, John Rylands & U. S. National Library of Medicine), none added by OCLC. LaFanu, A Bibliography of Edward Jenner, 1985. 3.

        Recueil de jardins anglois et chinois. Recueil de jardinage composé par le Sr. Panseron, Architecte, Professeur d’Architecture, Ancien Professeur de Dessin à l’Ecole Royale Militaire et cydevant Inspecteur des Batimens de S.A.S. Mrg. le Prince de Conti

      Chez lauteur Paris: : Chez l’auteur,, 1783.. Full Calf. Very Good. 4to (27.0 x 20.5 cm), Contemporary decorative calf with red morocco label. Collation: [6] pp. + 6 [i.e. 5], 6, 6, 10 (folded) plates. The book is bound in a decorative, mottled calf French binding of the period. The spine has raised bands and floral gilt decorations in panels, with red morocco label in upper panel. The Ends of spines and corners show some wear. There is worming spot on front cover near fore edge with light scuffing to boards, rubbed corners.All of the plates are hand colored in a fine contemporary hand and paper repair to the folding plates along the spine. There are some small stains on a few plates near the tab, affecting the borders. The first 6 pages contain 4 engraved pages of text. The twenty-seven (27) engraved plates depict garden designs of English and Chinese style with a scale of garden designs are hand colored. This is the second volume of 4 in a series of works, which include the author’s Recueil de jardinage (1783), and, Recueil de jardins. Anglos-chinois (1787). The missing first plate is absent in all extant library copies, indicating it was not bound in all copies, evidenced by an uncolored first plate in the copy of the book in the Bibliotheque Nationale, Paris. The engraved colored plates in the three “Cayer” of 17 plates are excellent examples of English and Chinese gardens and give detail designs of gardens while the remaining 10 folding plates provide “Dispositions” of gardens with with buildings or “Batiments” and other garden structures. Penseron was a student of Jacques Francois Blondel, one of France’s great architects. Penseron designed and engraved all the plates which illustrate his mastery of engraving and beautiful design and coloring to represent the rich and wonderful survey of gardening in France in the second half of the 18th century when English and Chinese gardens were en vogue. Any copy of Panseron’s excellent treatise on English and Chinese garden design is very scarce. (Only a few libraries have this 2nd volume and the Institut national d'histoire de l'art. Collections Jacques Doucet. Bibliothèque. Paris has the complete series of 4 volumes) Excellent hand colored engravings of proposed garden designs by Panseron

        Encyclopédie méthodique. Marine

      Paris., 1783; 1786; 1787.. b/w engraved plates, many double page or folding. This is the “Marine” section of Pancoucke’s massive 200-plus volume encyclopedia, which itself was an expanded version of Diderot’s 27 volume effort. It includes a plate volume of 175 engravings showing all phases of marine technology - from cartography to rope making. The three text volumes are arranged alphabetically by topic, and discuss such things as shipbuilding, docks, waterfront fortifications, flags, sails, signaling methods, naval strategy, and anchor forging. These were products of the Enlightenment - attempts to categorize and collect all knowledge. As such, Pancoucke’s Encyclopédie Méthodique is an up to date compendium of everything that was known about marine technology in 1780. It is of great historical value. This set is in brilliant condition, with pages crisp. clean and untrimmed, and engravings sharp and clean, with no foxing or offsetting. Bound in 19th century half calf over marbled boards.

        Alocucion que en el dia veinte de enero del año mil setecientos ochenta y tres, cumpleaños del Rey nuestro señor D. Carlos III (que Dios gu[ard]e.) pronuncio a la Real Sociedad Patriotica de Manila

      En la Imprenta del Seminario Eclesiastico por Ignacio Ad Vincula Manila: En la Imprenta del Seminario Eclesiastico, por Ignacio Ad-Vincula, 1783. Recent marbled paper–covered boards (green and mauve stone pattern); red leather label on front cover. A few minor paper repairs to edges of a few leaves; a very few small pinhole type wormholes, not costing any letters; the brown spotting and staining peculiar to rice paper. Old, brief note lightly red-inked to title-page. Over all a very good copy.. Folio (29.5 cm; 11.5"). [1] f., 23, [1] pp. After consecration and service in Spain, Sancho de Santa Justa arrived in Manila in 1767 to take up his duties as archbishop, which included overseeing the expulsion of the Jesuits. He was a native of Aragon and a member of the Society of Scholarum Piarum. In this address on the occasion of Charles III's 67th birthday, he expresses himself no friend of many of the Enlightment's ideas but a staunch supporter of the King, his economic policies, and especially of the newly instituted practice of free commerce in the Spanish empire. On the other hand, he rails against England, its foreign commercial practices, and its ascension as a maritime powerhouse.As the title states, this was pronounced before "la Real Sociedad Patriotica de Manila." That august body was "congregada por estatuto en el salon del Real Palacio, y presidida de su protector el muy ilustre señor D. Joseph Basco, y Bargas, Balderrama y Rivera cavallero del Orden de Santiago, capitan de navio de la real armada, gobernador, y capitan general de estas Islas Filipinas, y presidente de su real audiencia, y chancilleria, director g[ene]r[a]l de las tropas de S.M. en estos dominios, superintendente general de la Real Hacienda, y Renta de Tabaco, y subdelegado de la de Correos &c. &c."The work is printed on "rice paper" (i.e., Asian paper probably from the mulberry tree) as was common in Manila during the period to ca. 1820. The typography is definitely provincial and plain, using only one decorative woodcut initial and no ornamentation on the title-page. The type is roman in a variety of sizes with a practice of using all capitals for emphasis.The press on which this work was printed had been that of the Jesuits until Archbishop Sancho de Santa Justa carried out the king's order and expelled them; he then appropriated the press for his private use, as here. What had been only the fourth press to operate in the Islands, now with a new name, became the fifth.Searches of NUC, WorldCat, and COPAC locate only five copies worldwide (three in the U.S., one in the U.K., one in Spain).
