WILLMET, Johannes.
Lugduni Batavorum, apud Sam. et Joh. Luchtmans, 1784.4to. Contemporary half calf, spine gilt, with red morocco title-label. XVI,824 pp.First edition. - The Arabic-Latin dictionary by Joannes Willmet (1750-1835) was primarily printed for educational purposes. This work is compiled chiefly from that of Golius, but with many important additions. Though it states to be constructed only for the Koran, Hariri and Ibn ArabshahÂ’s Life of Timur, yet the Arabic student will seldom be at loss for any root he may meet with any other author. For the Koran it is particularly useful, as it contains not only all the words but refers also to the chapter and verse in which they occur (Ras Al Khaimah).- (Blank margin last page restored). - A fine interleaved copy with text in Arabic and Latin in double column.

Sole edition, privately printed in Newcastle and very scarce. It includes, 'Peace. An Ode written during the American War.' The English Review was enthusiastic: 'The merit of these poems is much above the common', while he Monthly Review was tactful: 'We cannot praise this poetry, and we are unwilling to condemn it, because the book is published for the benefit of the Author's widow and children. We would therefore recommend it to the benevolent Reader to buy, read, and judge for himself. It may be three shillings well laid out.' Not in Aubin, Jackson or Johnson. ESTC: A.K.

Excellent condition.- An exceptionally rare group of 6 engravings of American types from Cruz Cano y Olmedilla’sColeccion de trajes de Espana, a book published over the years in parts, and virtually unknownina single complete example, these are the only plates representing American costumes, andthey show a very specific theme, the Castas, or the races created the singular and unique mix of native-Americans, blacks, and criollos. The Coleccionwas issued inparts over a number of years, each“entrega” was composedof 12 plates; most copies contain a varyingnumberof thefirst 60 plates (the first 5 “entregas”); the Castas were was issued as the sixth “entrega”of the collection, and this group represents at least half of the full series, which is unknown in a single complete collection. The Biblioteca Nacional of Spain doesn’t have the complete set either. The plates contained here are: 61. De español e india nace mestizo (dated 1784), 62. De mestizo e india nace coyote, 63. De negro y española nace mulata, 64. De mulato y española nace morisco, 65. De collote e india nace chamizo, and 66. De español y morisca nace albino. The Castas were a theme somewhat widely reproduced in17thand 18thcentury colonial art, especially in paintings in Mexico; it was the social response to the necessity of the colonial elite to give a sense of order to the rather complex American society, and the Enlightment tendency of classification.

CRUIKSHANK, GEORGE
1784. "Leigh Hunt has some where most charmingly described that peculiar sort of summer's day, when, without seeing the sun, one feels all its gentle influences." With warm words of friendship Cruikshank opens his letter to Charles Kent, writer and editor of "The Sun" newspaper and continues in the same metaphoric style to describe a memory. "I remember once seeing at Bartholomew Fair - an invitation- over one of the booths after this fashion." He draws a sign which reads, "Come & see Jack Allen set to 1d." That evening Cruikshank explains he will "preside over a meeting to be held at Exeter Hall to discuss upon the exclusion of strong [drinks] from the Crystal palace. and also to propose a petition to Parliament to close Gin and Beer shops on the Sabbath." Beautifully signed in his unmistakable hand, "George Cruikshank." Cruikshank addressed the small envelope and signed in the lower left corner. Cruikshank alludes to his anti-alcohol views which he made apparent in his drawings. Cruikshank seems to be invoking his friendship with Kent, a friendship that seems to have lapsed, as he offers the details of that evening's temperance meeting. The reference to the invitation in the form of a sign could be a clever way of inviting Kent. Leigh Hunt (1784-1859) was a contemporary poet and editor of the politically independent newspaper, "The Examiner." Cruikshank alludes to his anti-alcohol activities which he made apparent in his drawings.

ROY (Abbé).
Paris Imprimerie de Monsieur 1784 2 volumes petit in-12, maroquin rouge de l'époque, dos lisses ornés, triple filet doré encadrant les plats, dentelle dorée intérieure et sur les coupes, tranches dorées. De la Collection des Moralistes Modernes. Les 25 dernières pages sont des pensées d'Young sur la vieillesse et réfutation des mêmes pensées. Dans le premier volume, l'auteur démontre la nécessité le respect des personnes âgées, fondé sur la nature et la raison, tandis que dans le second tome, l'auteur appuie sa thèse sur les textes des anciens. Dans L'esprit des Journaux , 1784, page 96, on mentionne l'utilité d'un tel ouvrage face à une jeunesse qui n'a plus le respect des vieillards, qui les regarde d'un air suffisant, en leur coupant la parole... Jean Roy 1744-1805 théologien, membres de plusieurs académies commença une carrière littéraire vers 1770. L'ouvrage L'Ami des vieillards , dédié à la duchesse de La Vallière, et qui sera présenté au roi, permettra à l'auteur de remplir ses fonctions de censeur royal et de devenir secrétaire ordinaire du duc d'Artois... Malmené par une affaire judiciaire dont il aura du mal à s'extraire -il sera en effet accusé d'être l'un des instigateurs de l'émeute populaire du Faubourg St-Antoine, à Paris dans l'affaire Réveillon, dont l'événement précédera de peu la prise de la Bastille en 1789... Devenu ennemi du peuple et la proie de certains journalistes, dont Camille Desmoulins, l'abbé Roy, malgré quelques débats et justificatifs, n'aura pas d'autre choix que de fuir.

Henry Fielding (Sharpham, 22 April 1707 - near Lisbon, 8 October 1754) was an English novelist and dramatist known for his rich earthy humour and satirical prowess, and as the author of the novel Tom Jones. Aside from his literary achievements, he has a significant place in the history of law-enforcement, having founded (with his half-brother John) what some have called London's first police force, the Bow Street Runners, using his authority as a magistrate. Fielding never stopped writing political satire and satires of current arts and letters. His Tragedy of Tragedies of Tom Thumb (for which Hogarth designed the frontispiece) was, for example, quite successful as a printed play. He also contributed a number of works to journals of the day.

Scheinbar ist Binet hiermit auf die Wünsche seines Autors eingegangen, der ihn völlig beherrschte. Übrigens sind diese Kupfer gegenständlich meist recht interessant, einmal weil sie die phantastischen Gedankengänge Restifs wiedergeben, dann weil sie uns so manche Einblicke in die Moden und Sitten der Übergangszeit vor und während der Revolution gewähren". - Bd.
