        OBSERVATIONS SUR LE GOUVERNEMENT ET LES LOIX DES ÉTATS-UNIS D'AMERIQUE.

      Amsterdam: Chez J.F. Rosart, . 1784 - [2],213pp. [bound with:] [Jay, John]: EXTRAIT DU JOURNAL DE LECTURE, No. XXXVII. LETTRE CIRCULAIRE DU CONGRÈS DES ÉTATS UNIS D'AMÉRIQUE A SES CONSTITUANTS. [Paris. 1779?]. [2],26pp. [with:] [French Drama]: LA PAIX DE 1782 OU LE BOWL DE PUNCH DE MASTER OLIVER DREAMER. London. 1782. 47pp. First two titles 12mo., third title octavo. Contemporary calf, gilt, spine gilt with floral design. Binding rubbed and worn, chipped at head of spine. Internally fine. These three titles, printed in French but produced throughout Europe, all touch on the American Revolution and its aftermath. Mably's work consists of four letters written to John Adams, then the American Minister to Holland, on the government, laws, and political divisions in the United States. One of the letters deals specifically with Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, and Georgia. The second item is a circular letter from the Congress of the United States of America to their constituents on the subject of raising funds for the public debt, and is signed in print by John Jay, Sept. 13, 1779. Herein Jay outlines the fiscal state of the infant nation, in particular light of the growing war debt. In the United States the letter was ordered to be printed and distributed to the numerous parishes throughout the nation, to be read by the several ministers at the close of religious services. Jay implores the populace to maintain its resolve, and to be wary of insidious reports that the new government is failing. This French printing, likely produced to reassure the French shortly after they entered the Revolution on the American side, is extremely rare. OCLC locates only one copy, at the University of Pennsylvania. That copy, however, is printed in an octavo format, as opposed to the duodecimo format as in the present copy. The third title consists of a farcical French drama touching on the American Revolution. Mably: HOWES M5, "aa." SABIN 42923. Jay: SABIN 15515 (Philadelphia ed). OCLC 17381334. Drama: SABIN 58262.

        Flora Rossica.

      Petropoli (St. Petersburg) 1784-1788. 2 volumes (bound in 1). Folio (286 x 451mm). pp. (6), viii, 80; (2),114, with handcoloured engraved frontispiece and 101 beautifully handcoloured engraved plates. Contemporary tree calf, gilt ornamented spine skilfully rebacked with red and green gilt lettered label, covers with Russian imperial arms gilt. The first great illustrated flora of Russia, initiated by Empress Catherine the Great. "Among many publications Flora Rossica was Pallas's most ambitious work, intended to reach 500 or 600 plates. Catherine II underwrote the costs of publication; but a change of ministers dried up the funds, and a second volume was abandoned" (Hunt, 672). /"In 1767 Pallas was invited to work at the St. Petersburg Academy of Sciences. He was elected ordinary academician and had the rank of acting state councilor. For more than forty years Pallas was associated exclusively with the development of Russian science. During his first years he studied nature and the peoples of the Russian empire, participating in the Academic expeditions of 1768-1774" (DSB)./The beautifully handcoloured engraved frontispiece shows Catherine the Great seated on clouds surrounded by cherubs, one of whom is presenting a copy of the book. In her right hand Catherine is holding flowers. The 101 beautifully handcoloured engravings of flowering plants are by Karl Friederich Knappe. The nomenclature of the plants are in latin and russian. An exceptionally fine, large copy without any foxing. //Hunt 672; Nissen BBI, 1482.,.

        Beyträge zur Geschichte der Vögel.

      Wien, C.F. Wappler, 1784. 4to (285 x 230mm). pp. (10), 45, (1), with 19 handcoloured engraved plates. 19th century cloth-backed marbled boards (spine a bit worn). An important work as it gives early descriptions of birds from the West Indies and the northern parts of South America. Emperor Franz Stephan, husband of Maria Theresia, founded the Imperial Zoological Gardens at the Schönbrunn Palace in 1752. In 1755 he sent an expedition to the West Indies and the northern parts of South America to collect plants and animals for the gardens at Schönbrunn and the menagerie. Nicolaus Joseph Jacquin was in charge of the expedition which lasted 4 years. During this trip he made notes on birds which were published by his son Joseph Franz Jacquin. 32 species are treated of which 25 come from the above mentioned regions. According to the descriptions in the book almost all the birds had been kept at the Schönbrunn menagerie. "Several new species are described. The plates are excellent for the period" (Zimmer I, 320). Only 2 plates are signed by the artist, one plate by A. Amon and one plate by J. Adam.//Anker 220.

        Considerations on the Defects of Prisons and ... on a Plan of Reform

      London, 1784. First Edition. Recent half leather. A very good copy; some dustiness to the half title. 8vo.,Paul was a philanthropist (DNB) who took a particular interest in prison reform. A fearsome epidemic of jail fever within his local jurisdiction - he had been appointed high sheriff of Gloucestershire in 1780 - drew his attention to the conditions prevailing in local jails. The book offered here is the result of his work as the head of a committee that had been appointed to seek the construction of a modern prison building. The DNB reports that he designed the new buildings for the penitentiary and work house according to theories set forth in the this book. Mindful of medical problems he saw to it that the new structure contained infirmaries and other improvements. It appears that Howard had the benefit of Paul's work for his masterpiece on prison reform that appeared some years later (DNB). DNB XV, 515 - 516.

        Vache Marine. Et Peche avec la Varre (Marine Cow/Manatee)

      Paris 1784 - In the early 18th century, France turned away from imperial aspirations to focus on more personal and pleasurable pursuits. As political life and private morals relaxed, the change was mirrored by a new style in art, one that was more intimate, and decorative. Louis XIV's desire to glorify his dignity and the magnificence of France had been well served by the monumental and formal qualities of most seventeenth-century French art. But members of the succeeding court began to decorate their elegant homes in a lighter, more delicate manner. This new style has been known since the last century as "rococo," from the French word, rocaille, for rock and shell garden ornamentation. First emerging in the decorative arts, the rococo emphasized pastel colors, sinuous curves, and patterns based on flowers, vines, and shells. Painters turned to the sensual surface delights of color and light, and from weighty religious and historical subjects to more intimate scenes. The styles of representation range from the mildly stylized but naturalistic to the intensely fantastical, verging on the surreal. This style would soon give way to one that adhered to the austerity and democratic spirit of the revolutionaries at the end of the century. This original hand-colored engraving, “Vache Marine. Et Peche avec la Varre” from the collection of fifty-nine engravings from Jacques Charton’s, “Collection de plantes etrangeres en fleurs, fruits, corail et coquillages” is a splendid example of the French decorative arts produced in Paris in 1784, just previous to the French Revolution. This engraving, most likely executed for porcelain designs, measures 17.25” x 11” and is in very good condition with light faint staining throughout. This engraving shows a marine cow or manatee resting on the banks in the foreground, while a boat with fishermen prepare to spear another in the water. This whimsical engraving is vibrantly colored with rich greens, light blue and pale orange-reds and is expertly detailed.

        BIBLIA, DAS IST: DIE GANZE HEILIGE SCHRIFT ALTEN UND NEUEN TESTAMENTES

      Basel: Johann Rudolf Im-Hof und Sohn, 1784. n. Hardcover. An Unusually Large "Back-to-Back" Binding, from the Library of Jean Fürstenberg. 197 x 121 mm (7 3/4 x 4 3/4"). Two volumes bound "dos-à-dos.". AN ESPECIALLY ATTRACTIVE CONTEMPORARY RED MOROCCO DOS-À-DOS BINDING, covers gilt with delicate roll border featuring calligraphic flourishes at the corners, at the center a pineapple-like oval ornament flanked by curling acanthus leaves from which a floral garland is draped, flat spines divided into compartments by multiple plain and decorative gilt rules, floral sprig centerpiece with small tools at corners and sides, gilt turn-ins, all edges gilt. In the original (somewhat rubbed) marbled paper pull-off case. Front pastedowns with book label of Jean Fürstenberg. Isolated trivial spots of foxing, but A REALLY EXCELLENT SPECIMEN, with virtually no internal signs of use and in a very bright binding with only very superficial wear. This is a very uncommon and unusually large 18th century example of a double-book or "dos-à-dos" binding, a style that was particularly popular in England from about 1600-40, when it was used especially for small, embroidered devotional works. In a dos-à-dos (literally "back-to-back") binding, two volumes are joined so that they share a common back cover and so that the fore edge of one is adjacent to the spine of the other. The restrained decoration here does not attempt to replicate the typically more ornate 17th century embroidered designs. An especially lucky survival here is the original fragile cardboard pull-off case. It is not surprising that such an object comes from the illustrious library of Jean (also Hans) Fürstenberg, noted for fine bindings and excellent condition. (For more on Fürstenberg, see item #41.) Dos-à-dos bindings appear in the marketplace from time to time, but ABPC (back to 1975) and Americana Exchange (back to the 1930s) seem to list just one other German book bound this way, a 1768 Ulm Bible sold by Ketterer in 2010.

        Bromatologia seu Doctrina de Esculentis et Potulentis.

      . Vienna, apud Rudolphum Graeffer, 1784, 8°, 428, (12) pp., gestochene Titelvignette, Portrait, marmorierter Kalbsledereinband der Zeit mit Buntpapiervorsätzen und reichlicher Rückenvergoldung; blasser St.a.Tit.. Second Edition (first 1783) of what Simon considers: "An unusually interesting book of dietetics and cookery, describing the qualities of every possible kind of food and drink, plants, fungi, animals, fats and oils, condiments, wines and spirits, tea, coffee ... etc." The text is in Latin, but the German nomenclature is included. Plenck is probably best remembered for his system of dermatological calssification (explained in his Doctrina de morbis cutaneis of 1776), but his talents were extensive, as can be witnessed in this less well-known work. - The portrait is of Giovanni Alessandro Brambilla, to whom the work is dedicated. This work was obviously also found unusually interesting when it was published, the second edition appearing just a year after the first and apparently being a direct reprint of the first with just the date changed - in effect a second issue, rather than a true second edition. - Sehr schönes, frisches, breitrandiges, wohlerhaltenes Exemplar mit reicher Rückenvergoldung. Marmorierter Kalbsledereinband der Zeit mit Buntpapiervorsätzen. Blasser Bibliotheksstempel auf dem Titelblatt. - Joseph Jacob von Plenck (1738-1807) war während des 7jährigen Krieges als Regiments-Chirurg tätig. 1770 wurde er Lehrer der theoretischen und praktischer Chirurgie an der neu errichteten Universität Tyrnau, ab 1777 in Ofen, wo er auch die Fächer Botanik und Chemie lehrte. Gleichzeitig war er Direktor der Feldapotheken und Sekretär der med.-chir. Josephs Akademie in Wien. Plenck war einer der fruchtbarsten medizinischen Schriftsteller seiner Zeit. - Simon, Gastronomica 1204; Blake p. 355; Wellcome IV, p.402 (imperfect, portrait wanting); NUC records three locations.

        Carte Generale Offrant les Decouvertes Faites Par Le Capitaine Jacques Cook Dans Ces Voyages et Dans Les Deux Voyages Precedens Ainsi que La Route Des Vaisseaux Qu'il Commandoit. par. Henri Roberts, Lieutenant de la Marine Du Roi.Paris. 1784

      Paris, 1784. B / W., 65 x 97 cm. This fine chart by Lieut.Henry Roberts, who sailed with Capt.James Cook on his third voyage to the Pacific in 1776 - 1780, is from the French Edition of Cook's Voyages originally published in London in 1782 - 84. Lieut. Roberts drew several large charts, based on Cook's voyages, and then drew a composite of the three circumnavigations on this striking chart which shows Cook's tracks during his first, second and third voyages in 1768 - 71, 1772 - 1775 and 1776 - 1780. The French edition of Cook's voyages, engraved by Robert Benard came out in 1774 - 1785 in Paris.

        Journal of the Senate of the State of New York, (Seventh Session, 1784)

      New York: Printed by E. Holt, Printer to the State. 1784. First. First edition. Subtitle reads, "At their first Meeting of the Seventh Session, begun and holden at the City-Hall in the City of New York, on Tuesday, the sixth Day of January, 1784." Folio. Unbound and untrimmed as issued in folded sheets. Incomplete. Consists of pages 59-134, and pages 61-168: i.e., two distinct sets of separately paginated sheets, each set recording a unique account of the daily proceedings in March, April, and May of 1784. It thus appears that two printed accounts of the same proceedings: one "official," the other "secret," (not an uncommon practice at the time) are here mixed together. Scattered chipping to the page edges affecting the letterpress at the margins of only some of the outermost leaves of each set, else good or better. ESTC locates four copies of one edition only: "147,[1] pages." No variants are noted. Evans 18644, ESTC W33312. .

Goed. IV.1, § 222, 6, 7c. Erste Ausgabe der 2. Bearbeitung des Werkes "Betrachtungen über die Einsamkeit" (Zürich 1756). Z. stellt darin die Einsamkeit als einen Ort der reflexiven u. emotionalen Bewährung des Menschen dar. "Es ist nicht nur dem Umfange nach Zimmermann's Hauptwerk, sondern auch deshalb, weil sich sein ganzes Wesen, seine Vorzüge wie seine Fehler darin am deutlichsten ausprägen; voll der tiefsten und schönsten Betrachtungen verräth es wie in seiner Polemik so auch in der Lobpreisung der Natur deutlichen den Einfluß Rousseaus.." (vgl. dazu ADB). Enthalten sind die Kapitel 5-12 (Einige Nachtheile der Einsamkeit./Nachtheilige Einwirkung der Einsamkeit auf die Einbildungskraft./Nachtheilige Einwirkung der Einsamkeit auf die Leidenschaften, zumal bey Einsiedlern und Mönchen./Apologie gegen einen falschen Apostel der Einsamkeit./Allgemeine Vortheile der Einsamkeit./Vortheile der Einsamkeit f. den Geist./Vortheile der Einsamkeit f. das Herz./Uebersicht des Ganzen Reflexionen über Mystik u. Möncherey. Beschluß.). Die Nachricht am Ende des 4. Bandes "die der Herr Nachdrucker dieses Buches nicht nachdrucken wird" spricht sich gegen die, zu dieser Zeit gängigen Raubdrucke aus. ZIMMERMANN Johann Georg (1728-1795); Mediziner, Philosoph u. Publizist. Z. studierte in Göttingen Medizin bei Albrecht von Haller, durch dessen Empfehlung er 1754 dann auch die Stelle als Stadtarzt von Brugg besetzte. In den 14 Jahren, die er in Brugg seinen Wirkungskreis hatte, fällt auch der Beginn seiner schriftstellerischen Tätigkeit. 1768 wurde er als königl. Leibarzt nach Hannover gerufen. Z. verkehrte mit den Geistesgrößen seiner Zeit. Lavater, Wieland, Gessner, Bodmer und Goethe waren seine Gesprächs- und Briefpartner. Allerdings ist überliefert, daß es durch seine Neigung zum Streit mit vielen Freunden zum Zerwürfnis kam. Z. starb krank und geistig umnachtet in Hannover. Seine letzten Wort waren "Laßt mich allein, ich sterbe!".

        The History of the Old and New Testament, Interspersed with Moral and Instructive Reflections

      Philadelphia: M. Steiner for C. Talbot, 1784. First Philadelphia edition. Hardcover. Very good. 12mo. vi, (ii), 436pp. (but p. 426 is mispaginated as 536). Contemporary full calf. Spine with gilt rules and red lettering piece, gilt. Two bookplates of a former owner. Old neat hinge repair, wear to corners and spine tips, some soiling and foxing but basically a very good copy in original binding. Important on several fronts. This is first book printed by America's first Catholic publisher, Christopher Talbot, 'late of Dublin'. Talbot later went on to co-found the Pennsylvania Herald. The title page states this is the third edition, but it is unclear where the earlier editions were published, or whether the statement represents an edition in English or in the original French. This is the second American printing of this title; it was originally printed in Baltimore in 1780; this is the first Philadelphia printing. It was important also to the Catholic community of the time as the first Catholic edition of Scripture, the Douai-Rheims version, was not printed in America until 1790 (see Darlow and Moule, the entry after 949.) The list of subscribers includes John Carroll. Rare.
