      1785. HANCARVILLE, Pierre Francois Hugues, called d', & Francois-Anne DAVID. ANTIQUITES ETRUSQUES,GRECQUES ET ROMAINES. Gravees par F. A. David. Avec leurs explications; par d'Hancarville. Paris: Chez l'Auteur, [M. David,] rue des Cordeliers, au coin de celle de l'Obsrvance, 1785[-1788]. First French edition and the second edition, but in a smaller format, of the first English/French lamguage edition published at Naples 20 years earlier.

Two plates in Volume 1 (#28 & #29) are printed on the same sheet. The missing plates are Volume 4, nos. 59, 64, 68, 71, and Volume 5, nos. 52-54. Five small quarto volumes, 20.5 x 13 cm, in contemporary bindings by Gaugain of Paris, with his handwritten ticket on the verso of the ffep. in Volume 1. Mottled calf bindings with gilt decoration, red and green spine labels, a.e.g. Bindings show general shelfwear, occasional scuffing, and shallow loss at crowns. One plate is bound upside down (Volume 4, #17); and the spine labels for Volumes 3 and 4 are transposed. Occasional light foxing to text in Volumes 4 and 5, otherwise the text and plates are clean. The first edition of this work was published at Naples in 1766-67, in both English and French, under the title "Antiquites etrusques, grecques et romaines, tirees du cabinet du chevalier William Hamilton," as a large-size four-volume folio edition limited to only 500 copies. It documents William Hamilton's first collection of Greek vases, largely acquired from the Porcarini family, which he sold to the British Museum in 1772. Hamilton began collecting vases in 1764, when he was appointed envoy to Naples. Hancarville, a self- made antiquarian who had worked with Winkelmann, and who was familiar with local society, acted as Hamilton's agent and wrote the text describing the collection. Hamilton valued his vases as models for modern artists and designers; and the catalog of his collection was influential in the development of neo-classical designs for pottery and porcelain, especially Wedgwood.

        Manuscript Letter - East India Company Army Ensign Corresponds to Lord Provost of Edinburgh

      India, 1785. Cawnpore [Kanpur], 7 February 1785. Manuscript signed letter by East India Company Army ensign Robert Spottiswood, written to James Hunter Blair, Lord Provost of Edinburgh, and reporting on the status of peace and military presence in India, and also describing a nautical disaster near Ceylon. 8vo. Double leaf laid watermarked paper measuring approximately 19 x 22,5 cm, with integral address, and lovely red wax seal being a monogram of the writer's initial R.S., Very good condition. The unusually exquisite wax seal, for a young mariner, and the recipient of his correspondent, suggest that the writer was connected to an affluent Scottish family. Further research may find him to be a descendant of Sir Robert Spottiswood, Lord Newabbey (1596-1646), a Scottish lawyer whose father was John Spottiswoode (1565-1639), Archbishop of St Andrews, with lineage leading to Robert De Spottiswoode, born in the thirteenth century during the reign of Alexander III. Spottiswood is writing to James Hunter Blair (1741-1787) a Scottish banker, landowner and politician, who evidently provided him with a glowing reference with which to gain favourable entrance in the army of the East India Company. At the time of this correspondence, Sir Blair was Lord Provost of Edinburgh, holding this post from 1784 to 1786. Previously he was Member of Parliament for Edinburgh, from 1780 to 1784. The letter also mentions Lieutenant General Giles Stibbert, Commander-in-Chief, India, as the writer made contact with his assistant. Spottiswood provides a succinct but scarce eyewitness account of the burning of the ship "Duke of Kingston" at sea, near Ceylon, in 1783. [The Duke of Kingston, the second ship named as such, was built at the Blackwall Yard by a ship builder named Perry, and was launched in 1772. Its maiden voyage was in 1772, sailing to China under Captain Snow. The second voyage was made in 1776 under Captain Robert Maw, to Madras and Bengal. The third voyage departed Portsmouth in November 1778, also to Madras and Bengal, as well as Rio de Janeiro, under Captain Justinian Nutt, returning in 1781. Her fourth and final voyage, in 1783, also headed to Madras and Bengal under Captain Justinian Nutt, leaving Portsmouth on 11 March 1783. The vessel was burnt off Ceylon on 20 August 1783. All that remains is a receipt book, an imprest book.] . Very Good.

        [AUTOGRAPH LETTER, SIGNED, FROM JAMES SULLIVAN TO ELBRIDGE GERRY, CALLING FOR FRUGALITY AS A NATIONAL CHARACTERISTIC, INCLUDING AT THE PRESIDENT'S DINING TABLE]

      Boston, 1785. Folio. Old fold lines. Minor soiling. Strip of later paper attached to left margin on verso of each piece. Very good. In a green half morocco and cloth clamshell case, spine gilt. James Sullivan, Massachusetts lawyer and politician, writes to Founding Father Elbridge Gerry, discussing the need for frugality to be a core American virtue. Sullivan was involved in the convention that wrote the state's first constitution, and led the movement to secure representation in the lower House for a representative from each town. He served as Massachusetts Attorney General from 1790 to 1807, when he resigned his post to assume the position of governor. He was a good friend of his correspondent, Elbridge Gerry. Gerry served in the Continental Congress and was a signer of the Declaration of Independence. He was an early and vigorous advocate of American Independence, and played a crucial role in the formation of the new United States government, insisting on a bill of rights being added to the new constitution. His name is perhaps best remembered, however ignominiously, in connection with the term "gerrymandering." In his second term as governor of Massachusetts, Gerry redrew district lines to consolidate his party's control in the state senate. Though this was not necessarily a new practice, the name stuck. Gerry ran on the ticket with President Madison in 1812, for Madison's second term as president, and died in office in November 1814. Espousing a very New England view of the situation, Sullivan imparts his thoughts on the subject of national character to his friend, emphasizing the ways in which frugality as a national trait will elevate America's position on the world stage. He advocates legislating the expense and extravagance of the President's table, in order to set a precedent that will filter down to the state leaders, etc., and be passed down as an example to all of the nation's future leaders. The letter reads, in part: "My dear Gerry, You will permit me to trouble you with one thought on public measures, which though unimportant in your eye, yet your candour & friendship will pardon the intrusion. I cannot but wish, however unfashionable I may be in it, that our national character (for one we must have) may be marked by industry and oeconomy [sic]. I wish it might be said to the traveller who shall be on his way to America, 'You will find then an hospitable people, but men who uniformly attend to the various calls of industry, & while their tables are crowned with plenty, they are governed in their expenses by the rules of frugality. Their state of life is such as affords the most happy presage of their young republic being lasting as the constitution of it is pure.' A character like this would raise us in the estimation of foreigners, would fix our private and establish our public credit among the nations of the world; it would yield us an infinite advantage over what we can possibly obtain in our present carreer [sic] of mimicking fops, and men of fortune in old countries.... "I am persuaded that it is in the power of Congress immediately to lay such a foundation for table frugality throughout the union as will not be shaken for a long time yet to come. You have a gentleman at the head of the federal table whom I conceive to be not only a theoretic but a practical whig and in all instances a firm patriot. Should Congress now advise or direct that his table should be spread in a mode suitable to the state and situation of a young republic, that it should bare [sic] enough for the surrounding guests without groaning under an immense weight or the wasting surplusage, which we generally see at what are called polite tables, it would be an example aided by the strength of superior opinion while all the federal officers and all the governors of the separate states would hand it down with obligations to the people. It would very soon be rendered disreputable to gentlemen of private life to exceed the measure sanctified by so great an authority. I know it may be objected that foreign ministers keep tables which ought not to be more than equal to that supported by the union....The idea of making the entertainment as splendid as the guest is an unfortunate mistake; the table ought to appear as splendid as the owner.... "For a young republic struggling under an oppression of public and private demands, with scarcely one man in it who can retire from business upon his fortune, to ape the nobility of old countries must I think end in a most disagreeable manner. I know it would by some be thought a piece of indulgence to move Congress for an ordinance to regulate the President's table, but should the President himself move Congress, and lay the foundation of such a measure, it would itemize his memory and render him as respectable as if he had conquered armies in defence of his country for it is in vain to wash the soil of our country in blood to regain her freedom unless we endeavor as zealously against every unhappy habit which threatens to subvert it." An interesting letter by this Massachusetts politician to Gerry, showing one man's opinion of the ways the government should economize.

        The History and Practice of Aerostation

      London: Printed for the author, 1785. First edition. 2 engraved folding plates. 326 pp., [7] pp. index, [1] p. ads. 8vo (8-3?4 x 5-1?2 inches). (Disbound, uncut, most of original rear wrapper intact). Brown morocco clamshell case. Provenance: George Morland (signature); Unidentified collector (sale, Christie's, 14 December 1984, lot 195). Wolf and Hayes, Library of Ben Franklin, no.563. First edition. 2 engraved folding plates. 326 pp., [7] pp. index, [1] p. ads. 8vo (8-3?4 x 5-1?2 inches). "Souvenir du 'Bon Homme Richard'". An influential scientific account of early aeronautical experiments, and the first English-language treatise on the subject.  This copy has a presentation inscription from Benjamin Franklin to Pierre Samuel du Pont, followed by a presentation inscription from DuPont to a family member, possibly a daughter-in-law or grandchild.  Written on the titlepage, the inscriptions read:  "To Mr. DuPont de Nemours from his obliged and obedt. servt. B. Franklin"; and beneath that, "A ma chere cousine en Carolina, Aoust 1799, DuPont de Nemours Souvenir du 'Bon Homme Richard.'" Bon Homme Richard is, of course, a reference to Franklin's Poor Richard.  Though the inscription by Franklin is faint, it was authenticated by Edwin Wolf in his survey of books which had belonged to Benjamin Franklin. Since Franklin gave the book away in his lifetime, it would not have been part of the final library he assembled in Philadelphia at the end of his life.   While serving as American plenipotentiary in France, Franklin took a keen interest in the first balloon ascents made by the Montgolfier brothers, witnessing the first unmanned ascent in August 1783, and the first manned flight in November that year.  Franklin was among the eminent scientists who signed an official certification for the Montgolfiers (noted by Cavallo on p.50 of this work).  Franklin wrote detailed accounts of the experiments in letters to Sir Joseph Banks, who showed little interest in them, though Franklin cautioned him that such balloon experiments could lead to greater achievements beyond imagination.  Cavallo describes the early balloon experiments in France and England, speculates on the scientific principles they employ and envisions applications of the nascent science.  Much of the work is devoted to the Montgolfier brothers.  When asked by a skeptical observer what practical use a hot-air balloon might be, Franklin famously responded, "What is the use of a new-born baby?"   Franklin made the acquaintance of Pierre Samuel du Pont in France, spending a good deal of time in his company and offering high praise for du Pont's first major work of political philosophy, Physiocracy. By 1799, Pierre's son Victor Marie was a resident of Charleston, as French consul for the Carolinas and Georgia. He also spent some time in Philadelphia where he too met Franklin. He returned to France in the summer of 1799 to assist his family in their immigration to America. Leibmann & Wahl 644; Maggs Cat 387: 85; 295 see Carr, The duPonts of Delaware pp. 16-17

        A Sea Otter Plate #43. Cook's Third Voyage: Voyage to the Pacific Ocean

      London:: G. Nichol and T. Cadell,, 1785.. First printing. Archivally matted. Fine/ . Fine original copperplate engraving in the first edition by Peter Mazell after drawing by J. Webber. Sheet size: 56 x 40.2 cm. Plate mark: 26.8 x 20 cm. Scene: Reclining Nootka Sound Sea Otter on shore with rocks and vegetation. Scene sketched by John Webber (British 1751-1793), and engraved for the publication of the Cook's Third Voyage by Peter Mazell (British 1761-1797). An important composition illustrating one of the major reasons for the fervent discovery, exploration and claim of the Northwest Coast during the late 18th century: the otter trade. Cook's Third Voyage: Voyage to the Pacific Ocean, undertaken by Command of His Majesty, for making discoveries in the northern hemisphere, to determine the position and extent of the west side of North America, its distance from Asia, and the practicability of a northern passage to Europe, performed under the direction of Captains Cook, Clerke and Gore, in his Majesty's Ships the Resolution and Discovery in the years 1776, 1777, 1778, 1779 and 1780. The objective of the Third Voyage was to search for the North-West Passage from the western side of North America, and continue the surveying of the Pacific. In addition to the exploration, charting and documentation of the Northwest Coast from the Bering Straits to Northern California, the Expedition also named Tasmania, New Zealand & the Cook, Tonga & Hawaiian Islands. Cook was murdered in Kealakekua Bay, Hawaii. The narrative of Cook's Third Voyage was compiled by James King, who succeeded James Cook as Commander upon Cook's death. "This voyage resulted in what Cook judged his most valuable discovery- The Hawaiian Islands." Hill p. 62.

Aantrekkelijke band gebonden in bruin glad leer, aan de randen en op de rug met goud bestempeld en voorzien van twee 20 karaat gouden sloten. De sloten zijn vervaardigd door de Rotterdamse edelsmid Adrianus van Bemme. Zijn meesterteken, BEM, is aan de binnenzijde van de aanzetstukken gestempeld samen met de jaarletter van het jaar 1784, en het keurmerk van de stad Rotterdam. De sloten zijn rijkelijk bewerkt met bijbelse taferelen, met op de bovenste klem Mozes, op de onderste klem Aäron en op de aanzetstukken de 4 evangelisten met de hen destijds toebedachte symbolen, resp. Mattheüs met een engel, Johannes met een adelaar, Marcus met een leeuw en Lucas met een rund. Het gebruik van zowel oudtestamentische als nieuwtestamentische afbeeldingen op het sluitwerk geeft aan dat beide delen van de Bijbel één geheel vormen. Gouden sluitwerk op een kerkboek werd in het verleden al gezien als vrij uitzonderlijk en vanwege de kostbaarheid is dat tot op heden niet veranderd.) (engraved titlepage) 420, 132, 168 folia., (8) 244) p. Contemporary Leather decorated with gilt, 2 golden clasps and gilt-edged text block, 12° H. 15 x L. 9 x W. 5,5 cm. (Dutch States Translation of the Bible, containing the Old and New Testament followed by the Psalmes and Hymns and the Forms. Attractive binding bound in brown leather, gilded at the edges of the covers and the spine and equipped with two 20 carate golden clasps. The clasps are made by a goldsmith from Rotterdam named Adrianus van Bemme. His hallmark, BEM, is stamped on the inside of the hasps together with the year mark of the year 1784 and the hallmark of the city Rotterdam. The clasps are richly decorated with biblical scenes, with Moses on the top clasp, Aaron on the lower clasp and on the hasps the 4 evangelists with their accompanying symbols, resp. Matthew with an angel, John with an eagle, Mark with a lion and Luke with an ox. The use of images from both the Old and New Testament on the clasps points out the unity of both parts. Golden claps on a church book were already seen as rather exceptional in the past and because of the expensiveness that has not changed until now.) Noordwijk, B. van (n.d.).
