        Memoria sobre la bonificación de los vinos en el tiempo de su fermentación, y sobre la teórica y práctica del arte de hacer vino.

      Madrid, Antonio de Sancha 1784 - 4o (200 x 144 mm.) 116 p. inc. port. Pergamino de época, rotulación en lomo: ARTE DE HACER EL VINO. Primera y única edición de este curioso tratado sobre la fabricación de los vinos. Josep Albert Navarro-Mas y Marquet fue director de la Sociedad de Agricultura de la Real Academia de Ciencias Naturales y Artes de Barcelona, creada en 1764, en el seno de un movimiento europeo de renovación agronómica debido al aumento demográfico y por tanto al crecimiento de la demanda de bienes de consumo, sobre todo de los productos agrícolas. Debido a un cambio en el consumo, la elaboración de destilados y aguardientes sufrió; también un gran aumento. El cultivo de la vid y la elaboración de vino se convirtieron en la actividad económica más rentable de la época y, por tanto, fueron unos de los temas estrella del pensamiento agronómico de la época. Navarro era de la opinión que los vinos catalanes gozaban de muy poca calidad y acusa tanto los viticultores como los elaboradores. Él creía que era necesario reducir la cantidad y apostar por la calidad. La Memoria sobre la bonificación de vinos es una de las dos memorias suyas que se llegaron a editar.

        To The Right Hon. Frederic Lord North, His Majesty's Secretary of State for the Southern Department; [Captain William's Narrative; in which is contained particulars relative to the execution of Mustapha Cawn; and observations on the speeches of General Burgoyne, Colonel Fullarton, Mr. Fox, Mr. Burke, and, Mr. Francis; addressed to The Officers of the British Army]

      No publisher; [Printed for John Stockdale].. 1st Edition. Leather Bound. Very Good. 1784; [1790]. 31 pp.; 70 pp. Quarter leather with marbled boards. Spine label reads, "Tracts." Rebound with new end papers. Spine scuffed with tiny chip at bottom. Boards rubbed. This volume contains two related books. The first letter pertains to Pitt's India Act of 1784. The second is by Captain Williams, who put Mustapha Cawn to death without a trial, exactly the type of behaviour Pitt was trying to overcome with legislation in the British Parliament. The resulting Narrative is Williams' defense of his actions. Reverse of p. 31 in first tract is noticeably dark, and the leaves of this section bear more thumbing and staining than the rest of the text, which is only darkened on the first and last pages. The first tract is also shorter than the rest of the text block and bound slightly askew, but cut with the rest of the pages, and there is a tear in the centre of the block at the spine from the thread of its original binding. A few typos are corrected by hand in the first document. Williams' narrative, the second document, has lost its half-title and title-page. 0

        The Death of Captain Cook, In February 1779 by the murdering Dagger of a Barbarian at Carakakooa, in one of the Sandwich Isles. He having there become a Victim to his own Humanity. The Distressing Scene, is Part of the Original Plate after Webber by Messrs Bartolozzi & Byrne.

      London: Sold in Spur Street, Leicester Square, n.d. but, 1784. Oval engraving, 350 x 265 mm. (image size);. Exceptionally rare variant of the famous engraving of Cook's death showing, as the caption notes, "Part of the Original Plate after Webber". This is only rarely seen: the only copy catalogued by Joppien and Smith was in the British Museum.Based on the oil painting executed by Webber soon after he returned to London in 1780, the full-size version of the engraving was first issued early in 1784: Francesco Bartolozzi was responsible for the figures in the engraving and William Byrne produced the landscape.Quickly becoming the most famous of all eighteenth-century depictions of the massacre, the view appeared at about the same time as the official third voyage account was published. This was no coincidence: although lavishly illustrated by Webber, the official account did not include any depiction of the most famous scene of the entire voyage, the death of Captain Cook. As a result, the iconic engraving is often seen bound into extra-illustrated editions of the third voyage account.Reflecting the general opinion prevailing in published accounts of the voyage, the original image, as Joppien and Smith argue, appeared to show Cook as 'an innocent victim, killed in the act of pleading for peace'. This is here heightened by the changed composition, as the oval design gives the original image a radically different impact, eschewing the drama of the conflict between the British sailors and the Hawaiians in favour of a scene in which Cook, his arm raised in supplication to his men offstage, stands alone and overwhelmed by a seething crowd.The only copy noted among Australian holdings appears to be the heavily clipped copy in the National Library of Australia, part of the Nan Kivell collection. Small crease in lower margin, in very good condition.

      Printed by E. Holt, Printer to the State, New York 1784 - Two incomplete sets of folio gatherings: the Journals of the New York State Senate and the Journal of the New York Assembly, both seventh session proceedings respectively, printed by Elizabeth Holt after the death of her husband, the publisher John Holt, on January 30th 1784. Both are first printings in sheets as issued (stabbed but not stitched), untrimmed and unbound.The Journal of the Senate consists of the title leaf and 18 sequential folio gatherings (Q -- 2M): pp. 59-130. It thus includes the printed record of daily proceedings from March 15th, 1784 - April 28th, 1784. Modest scattered foxing and toning, the last three gatherings are partly damaged with tears to the top right corner and margin affecting parts of the letterpress headline only, else overall very good.

It thus includes the printed record of daily proceedings from March 3d, 1784 -- May 11th, 1784. Modest scattered foxing, the first leaf is toned, very good. There are two copies of the final leaf (2U1). Evans 18648, ESTC W16437.A very scarce survival of original folded sheets printed by Elizabeth Hunter Holt, sister to the renowned colonial Williamsburg publisher William Hunter. In 1749 she married John Holt, also of Williamsburg, whom she succeeded as printer for the state, and printer of The New-York Journal, which for a short time was renamed the Independent New-York Gazette. In June 1785 she turned over the Journal's proprietorship to son-in-law Eleazer Oswald, a Philadelphia newspaper publisher, because other printers were undermining the Journal's operation and seeking the state printership. OCLC locates only three copies of the complete published edition of the Journal of the Senate (pp. 147, [1]); and no copies of the complete published edition of the Journal of the Assembly (pp. 168).

Bachaumont écrivit les premiers volumes mais ils furent édités par Pidansat de Mairobert qui poursuivit l'écriture des volumes jusqu'à sa mort en 1779, ce fut ensuite le tour de Moufle d'Angersville. La collection complète contient 36 volumes. Reliures en demi basane chocolat à coins. Dos à nerfs orné de 3 fleurons. Titre et tomaison dorés. Plats frottés. Chronique rétrospective de la vie des belles lettres et des beaux-arts comprenant les critiques des pièces de théâtre, des spectacles et opéra, des sorties littéraires, des anecdotes, des salons littéraires et de peinture et de nombreuses pièces inédites en vers qui en font un recueil recherché. Les mémoires secrets contiennent plus de 10000 notices étendues sur 14 années ; de par sa fécondité, ils constituent une des sources les plus abondantes et précieuses pour l'histoire du XVIIIe siècle. C'est un des périodiques ayant eu la plus grande longévité et le plus grand succès, grâce à une politique publicitaire adéquate. Avant d'être recueilli sous forme de journal, il s'agissait de notes prises dans les salons par Bachaumont. Pidansat de Mairobert, avec son réel talent de journaliste en a fait un recueil varié et foisonnant reflétant la lecture profane du XVIIIe. Ex libris aux armes du XIXe F. de lagotellerie.

First edition. Jacques Necker (1732-1804) was a Swiss banker and Louis XVI's director-general of finance. This famous justification is one of the most important contributions to economical policies prior to the French Revolution. Necker tried to finance the participation of France in the American War of Independence without levying additional taxes. His important innovation was to operate with a national debt. When he was forced to resign in 1781, he retired to Saint-Ouen where he wrote the present work. It had such an enormous success with the general reader that within a few days, more than 80'000 copies were sold. In 1788, Necker was reinstalled as finance minister, and tried to influence restraint on the political developments which led to the French Revolution. - Pp. 15/16 in vol. 2 inserted from another (shorter) copy, otherwise fine. - Kress B.752; Quérard, La France littéraire VI, 392; cf.

Corners repaired. Bookplate on front pastedown. Hinges repaired internally. Hole in top of p. 5. Occasional spots. Rev. James Playfair (1738 1819) was an eminent figure in 18th-century Scotland. He received the degree of doctor of divinity from the University of St. Andrews in 1779 and was the school's principal for twenty years. For many years he held the appointment of historiographer to the Prince of Wales, later George IV. His later works include A System of Geography Ancient and Modern (1810-14), General Atlas Ancient and Modern (1814), and A Geographical and Statistical Description of Scotland (1819). An article about Playfair's Chronology in the English Review, 1784, states that "great pains, and a judicious selection, and adoption of the discoveries and opinions of other men, have enabled him to present to the public the most useful, and the most entertaining system of chronology with which we are acquainted." According to an amusing writer in The Monthly Review: "The table of eclipses is followed by a chronological list of councils, containing the title and date of every council, together with the chief subject of debate. For what reason these two tables are brought so near each other, we are at a loss to conjecture, unless our author meant to insinuate, that councils and eclipses have both occasional spread darkness over the face of the earth."

        [ Dirigible Design ] Mémoire sur l'équilibre des machines aérostatiques, sur les différents moyens de les faire monter et descendre, et spécialement sur celui d'exécuter ces manœuvres, sans jeter de lest, et sans perdre d'air inflammable, en ménageant dans le ballon une capacité particulière, destinée à renfermer de l'air atmosphérique

      Paris: Au Bureau du Journal de Physique 1784. First Edition. 480 pages. 4to. (7 3/5 inches x 10 inches) Recent 3/4 leather over marbled boards. Bright and clean internally, with very occasional spotting. We offer the entire Volume XXV [25] (July-December 1784) of Observations sur La Physique, Sur L'Histoire Naturelle et sur les Arts, Avec des Planches en Taille-Douce Dediees A Mgr. Le Comte D'Artois; Par M. l'Abbe Rozier, M. J. A. Mongez. The article by Meusnier is on pp. 39-47. INCLUDES a followup-article pages 48-69. Text in French. Boards. In 1783 Joseph Michel and Jacques Etienne Montgolfier constructed a full sized hot air balloon and demonstrated it for King Louis XVI - one of the very first balloon ascensions. A detailed report was made 'immediately after the attempt with the aerostatic machine' and signed by members of the Academie de Sciences Francaise. The machine was 70 feet high, and stayed up for twenty to twenty five minutes. "This first passenger flight was a spectacular success." Other Frenchmen Jacques Alexandre Cesar Charles and Pilatre de Rozier quickly built variations - some successful, some tragic. The only real control these pioneering balloonists had was buoyancy - how far up or down they soared. Steering was a mighty wish, but the wind was the real master without active steering control coupled with propulsion. Propulsion and control experiments quickly became the rage, including gunpowder charges, movable wings, riggings of sails, rotating screws, and oarsmen with silk covered oars. None worked very well. Enter Jean Baptiste Meusnier, who on leave of absence from his work as a military engineer at the Cherbourg harborworks was fascinated by this new field, "aerostation". After some study, on December 1783 he read before the Academy the paper offered here, the first published on these "machines", and the next month was elected a full member, immediately appointed to a committee on aerostation along with Lavoisier, Berthollet, and Codorcet. The results of his work on this committee were presented ina follow-on report read in November 1784 which included a theory and detailed construction plans for dirigible balloons. Although it "led to no practical results at the time", the new work was important and pioneering. Some of his ideas were tested by the Roberts brothers who flew a dirigible shaped balloon for seven hours during 1784, but the real test of the designs really required a means of propulsion that wouldn't exist for nearly 100 years - a small, lightweight engine. As with many innovators and futurists, Meusnier was well ahead of the technology his time afforded. Meusnier unfortunately died before he could test out his own theories. Other articles in the volume include work by Franz Karl Achard ("sur les altérations que le feu de fusion fait éprouver à la terre des végétaux, mêlée avec les autres terres pures" and "sur la vitrification de la terre alumineuse mêlée en proportions differentes & connues avec des sels" and one other), chemist M. Pelletier on salts, an article by Cavallo on an air pump, de Fouchy on measuring densities of the atmosphere, an article by Woulfe "nouveau procede pour faire l'ether nitreux", experiments on the air by cavendish, etc. etc. Beautifully engraved plates accompany some articles. The title of this paper translates to: "On the balance of aerostatic machines, on different ways to move them up and down, and especially on that of executing these maneuvers without throwing ballast and without losing inflammable air, providing in particular the ball capacity , for containing atmospheric air" and is a pioneering work on the subject. See "The Zeppelin Story" by W. Robert Nitske (A.S. Barnes & Company, 1977) and DSB IX, pp. 342-44 for more details. Near Fine.

        An Account of the First Aerial Voyage in England, in a Series of Letters to his Guardian

      London: Printed for the Author: and sold at the Pantheon; also by the Publisher, J. Bell, at the British Library, Strand; and at Mr. Molini's, Woodstock-Street, 1784. First edition of this account of the first balloon ascent in England, accomplished one year after the first aerial experiments in France. The Italian Lunardi describes the inspiration and preparation for his flight, as well as the failed ascent of his rival, the Frenchman Moret. The result is a personal and surprisingly moving account of the experiment: "the concern betrayed by the looks of my friends, though I know it to be without reason, has a considerable effect on me." (Indeed, Lunardi would suffer a near-fatal ballooning disaster above the North Sea just over a year later.) The book closes with eyewitness accounts by those who saw Lunardi land safely, miles away from the starting point where thousands of spectators, including the Prince of Wales, had anxiously watched his balloon ascend. Lunardi's feat made him an instant sensation in England and across Europe, even inspiring balloon-themed fashion trends. His book was sold at the Pantheon in Oxford Street, where his balloon was on triumphant display: "Most of my time is now taken up with the exhibition of the Balloon, and indeed of myself. . . . It is difficult to imagine any thing more pleasing than the solicitude which multitudes of beautiful women express concerning dangers that are past, and the heroism of others who wish to accompany me in my second tour." Lunardi signed the first copies of his book, including this one, to limit piracy. A near-fine copy of an important early record of aerial innovation, handsomely bound by Riviere & Son. Octavo in fours, late nineteenth-century three-quarter mottled calf over tan linen boards, boards double-ruled in gilt, raised bands, black morocco spine labels, spine lettered and ornamented in gilt, blue marbled endpapers, top edge gilt. Engraved frontispiece portrait of Lunardi, two folding engraved plates of the balloon and apparatus, followed by a page describing the plates with publisher's advertisements on verso (usually bound at rear). Signed on the half title by Lunardi. Light wear to edges of boards and head of spine, joints reinforced, half title dusty.
