        Amerique Septentrionale Publiee Par Sr. Moithey . . . 1785 [e] Amerique Meridionale . . . 1785

      1785. Rara carta murale di nord e sud America, pubblicata da Moithey e Crepy a Parigi. L'America del Nord dispone di un ampio cartiglio, con titolo circondato da figure allegoriche con Mercurio e tre figure femminili che rappresentano le potenze coloniali di Francia e Spagna, con la nuova formazione degli Stati Uniti. La mappa del Nord America mostra buon dettaglio delle incursioni spagnole, e un residuo del Longue River, che esiste ancora nel Midwest, qui chiamato il Grande Riviere. La parte meridionale mostra un dettagliato Sud America con un vasto sistema di fiumi. Il cartiglio con il titolo contiene un dio del mare in possesso di un'urna versando acqua per rappresentare i fiumi, e una nave sullo sfondo. Incisione in rame, stampata su due foglii, finemente colorata a mano, in buone condizioni. Molto rara. Rare set of North and South American wall maps was published by Moithey and Crepy. North America features a large title cartouche surrounded by allegorical figures with Mercury and three female figures representing the colonial powers of France and Spain with the newly formed United States, holding a staff with the Liberty cap. The map of North America shows good detail of the Spanish incursions, and a remnant of the Longue River still exists in the Upper Midwest, here called the Grande Riviere. Amerique Meridionale shows a detailed South America with an extensive system of rivers. The title cartouche contains a sea god holding an urn pouring water to represent the rivers, and a ship in the background. Printed on two joined sheets, good condition. In full body colours. The maps are attributed in the cartouche to Moithey, one of the more prolific issuers of separately published maps in Paris at the end of the 18th Century. The pair is very rare.

        Carte de L' ile de Fogo ˆ la Cote Orientale de Terre-Neuve.

      Artist: Lane Michael London ; Issued in: London; date: d 1785 - Artist: Lane, Michael London 1785; Issued in: London; date: d 1785; - Condition: Perfect condition; Seachart shows Fogo Island is the largest of the offshore islands of Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada. It lies off the northeast coast of Newfoundland. Fogo Island is one of the oldest named features on the coast of Newfoundland. The Bertius map from 1606 shows Fogo Island as one of only about a dozen important features around the coast of Newfoundland. On French maps of the 16th to 18th centuries the island is referred to as Ile des Fougues. The island was likely named by Portuguese explorers and early fishing crews in the 16th century (Fogo means Fire in Portuguese). Until 1783 Fogo Island was on an area of the coast called the French Shore.

La Résolution et le Discovery sillonnèrent également la côte de l'Alaska dans l'espoir d'y découvrir le passage du détroit de Béring. Après la mort de Cook, Clerke, commandant du Discovery prit la tête de l'expédition et chercha à nouveau à découvrir le passage au nord, mais cette fois par le nord - ouest, mais il mourut de phtisie au large du Kamchatka, seulement 6 mois après son commandant, sans avoir réussi.  Intéressante introduction générale qui offre une bibliographie des circumnavigations.

The work is divided into 11 chapter, bearing Hebrew or Greek titles and dealing with different sexual perversions.

      - London: printed for J. Osborne and T. Griffin, in St. Paul's Church-Yard, and J. Mozley, Gainsbrough, M.DCC.LXXXV [1785]. Sm. 8vo, ix, [3], 212 pp. Early or original calf, red morocco label. Early signature of Julia Aglionby and bookplate of Staffield Hall (home of the Aglionby-Fetherstonhaugh families). Free endpapers removed, a very pleasant copy. An attractive later edition of Montagu's travel memoirs. Lady Mary and her husband, the British ambassador to the Ottoman Empire, travelled overland to Turkey in 1716. Her letters, probably intended for publication from the start, are the first known secular account of the Near East by a Western woman. Lady Mary rightly emphasised the novelty of her accounts as a woman traveller with access to female-only environments. Her descriptions of Turkish bath houses are only one part of what made her letters fascinating and very popular. ESTC T79453: 6 UK and 12 US. Wayward Women, pp. 32-34. See also Cox II p.229.

Il primo numero è apparso solo due mesi prima. In questa seconda stampa è stato aggiunto cinque tavole Malapeau re e da St. Quentin. Non meno di 16 edizioni apparvero alla stessa data. Si noti che questa edizione è stata stampata dalla cura dello stesso autore, a Kehl, e ha preso i personaggi che sono stati utilizzati per stampare le opere di Voltaire. Bound in piena marrone di pelle di pecora a chiazze e vintage ghiaccio. Indietro liscio decorato. Come una mostra in pelle nera. Tripla mentoring netto sui piatti. Cappellini e angoli ripristinati. Poche macchie sparse. Mad aspettative del pubblico e comici dopo il Barbiere di Siviglia e il ritardo causato dalla censura (compreso il re stesso) spiega alcuni dei molti Marriage contraffazione di Figaro. Sappiamo che lo spirito della Rivoluzione ha trovato un simbolo potente nel personaggio di Figaro. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Seconde émission de l'édition originale et première édition illustrée, sur papier vélin. La première émission ne parut que deux mois avant celle - ci. A cette seconde impression on a ajouté les cinq planches de Malapeau et Roi d'après St. Quentin. Pas moins de seize éditions parurent à la même date (les retards dus à la censure du roi expliquent ces nombreuses contrefaçons). A noter que cette édition fut imprimée par les soins de l'auteur lui - même, à Kehl, et qu'il reprit les caractères qui avaient servi à l'impression des œuvres de Voltaire (caractères de l'Anglais Baskerville). On joint la toute première suite des illustrations. Ces gravures ont été réalisées après la publication de l'édition originale de première émission et ont été fournies en feuilles, elles sont dans un format plus petit. Beaumarchais les a faites regraver avec plus de soin et de goût, comme on pourra juger.   Reliure en pleine basane brune moucheté et glacée d'époque. Dos lisse orné. Pièce de titre en maroquin noir. Triple filet d'encadrement sur les plats. Coiffes et coins restaurés. Quelques rousseurs éparses. Bon exemplaire.   La folle attente du public et des comédiens de la suite du Barbier de Séville et le retardement causé par la censure (et notamment le roi lui - même) explique quelque peu les nombreuses contrefaçons du Mariage de Figaro. On sait que l'esprit de la Révolution trouvera un symbole éloquent dans le personnage de Figaro.

Inconnu de Vicaire, Bitting et Simon. Un avertissement à la seconde édition (publié en 1812 à Paris par l'Imprimerie Impériale) précise que la première édition de Bordeaux fut tirée à un si petit nombre d'exemplaires qu'il n'a pas été possible de les mettre en vente. "Outre la description de la plante, des différentes espèces, de sa culture, de ses maladies, de sa récolte et des boissons au maïs : bière, chiccha.., des recettes de cuisine : maïs grillé, frit, confit au vinaigre, bouilli, en potage, en semoule, en vermicelle, en biscuit de mer... Recette de polenta, de cruchade, de gaudes (à la courge, à la pomme de terre), de galette, de gâteaux, de pain (plusieurs recettes pain de maïs simple ou mélangés), terrines. La recette de la polenta est très complète..." (Oberlé, 815). Pour l'édition originale bordelaise, le texte de 1874 fut augmenté des nouveaux travaux de Parmentier de 1785, et alors que la version imprimée aurait dû contenir la première partie du mémoire qui avait concouru au côté de Parmentier, celui d'Amoureux, comme il avait été prévu dans le programme du 25 août 1784, ce dernier refusa, ayant été déçu de ne voir imprimer qu'une partie de son travail.

      (circa1790).. Coloured folding Japanese manuscript map copy of ?????????? [Sangoku tsüran yochi rotei zensu General Route Map of Three Countries]. 52 x 71.5cm folds to 24 x 13cm. Small holes at folds and on margins, soiling along central fold, dark paper strip along edges. Paper covered card covers insect damaged. The controversial Japanese book and five accompanying maps, 'Sangoku tsüran zusetsu' published in 1785, describes the geography and customs of three countries - Kankoku (Korea) , Yezo or Ezo (present day Hokkaido), and Ryükyü (present day Okinawa). At the time of its publication Ha Yezo was only partially occupied by the Tokugawa government and although from 1609 Ryükyü was in reality under the control of the Shimazu clan in Satsuma (present Kagoshima Prefecture), the Shimazu clan allowed it to be an independent country superficially. Among the five maps published to accompany Sangoku tsüran yochi (General Route Map of Three Countries), is this map of Japan and its neighbouring countries which this manuscript map is a copy of. The other four maps are: a map of Ryükyü (????), Yezo (?????), the eight provinces of Korea (?????), and Ogasawara Islands (????). This particular map, showing Japan and its neighbours attracts strong feelings even today as it shows the disputed islands, known to the Japanese as Takeshima ????/??, Dokdo - ??/?? to Koreans and Liancourt Rocks to English speakers, crucially marked as "Korea's possession". This is used by Korea as evidence for the legitimacy of their claim. The book and its accompanying maps, were an attempt to define Japan's borders and were banned on publication because the author, Hayashi Shihei, criticised Japanese maritime defence policy. As frequently is the case, the banning of Sangoku tsüran zusetsu did nothing to deter interest in what Hayashi Shihei had to say and copies of the maps were made and circulated underground. This copy appears to be one of these underground copies. Kanji numbers are neatly written in the border framing the map showing longitude and latitude. At first glance this suggests accuracy but in fact the map does not accurately reflect scientific knowledge in Japan at that period. Only a few years before in 1779 Nagakubo Sekisui published a much more accurate map of Japan. The map is imprecise, especially as the map maker moved further from the familiar regions of Honshu, Kyushu, and Shikoku. However it is clear that Hayashi Shihei's intention was not to concern himself with cartographical detail but as he says on the map itself "This is a small map to show the geographical relations between Japan and neighbouring countries such as Korea, Ryükyü, Yezo, Sakhalin, Kamchatka, and Sea Otter Island [Urup]." As this text suggests, the purpose was to show the location of Japan amongst her neighbouring countries rather to give a precise description of Japan and these countries. Previously in Japan there had been not much interest in mapping the region outside of Japan however with the increasing visits and incursions into Japanese territory by Russians, Dutch and other outsiders it became important to define and clarify Japan's borders. The manuscript is not dated but almost certainly this copy was made in the late Edo period, late 18th to early 19th century. .

First edition, and an absolutely delicious set in fine contemporary turquoise morocco, gilt, of this well-known book which enjoyed many later editions. Paterson (1738-1825), is most famous for his series of road books and cartographical works; his main contribution was to improve the information on roads. While making no significant innovations, "he made improvements in style and presentation, however, and added factual detail -- so much so that his name was for many years an indicator of reliability in road books, and was attached to them long after he had stopped compiling them."-ODNB. Very fine and fresh set. Seemingly printed on thick paper. ❧ Fordham, The Road-Books & Itineraries of Great Britain 1570 to 1850 (1924), p. 36.

        Voyage to the Pacific Ocean. (With Plates and Charts from the Atlas Bound In).

      London: H. Hughs, 1785. 6/25/16. Three vol. 4to. (10), xcvi, 421; (12), 548; (10), 556 pp. b/w folding charts and plates. This is the second edition of Cook’s final voyage. As we know, Cook died before the voyage could be completed, and James King took over, completing the third volume of the three volume official report. This third voyage was issued with a folio atlas containing two maps and sixty-one plates. However, in some sets the contents of the folio atlas were folded and bound into the text volumes. This is such a set. It contains the twenty-four maps and plates called for in the "list of plates" as well as the two maps and sixty-one plates that should be in the atlas. I just sold an atlas volume for $7500, so this set, with text and extra plates, is good value. See Beddie 1552. Bound in full mottled calf showing some scuffing and wear, but with spine labels and gilt decorations intact. Some offsetting and foxing; pages evenly tanned. The set, with maps and plates.

In his notes on this map of Ezo or Hokkaido, Hayashi discusses the sea lanes indicated by dotted lines and notes "Since, in recent years, men of Orosha [Russians] have taken possession of the territory east of Tartary, this land is called Orosha, or Kamusasuka.... Also since the Russians all wear red coats, the residents of Ezo call it Red Ezo in their dialect." Following the publication of 'Sangoku tsüran zusetsu' the authorities ordered the banning of the publication and for the woodblocks used to print the book and maps to be destroyed. Hayashi Shihei was imprisoned as his work was regarded as an offence against Japan's seclusion policies at the time. He died the following year. .

        Coleccion general de las providencias tomadas sobre el estrañamiento y ocupacion de temporalidades de regulares de la extinguida orden de la compañia, que existan en los dominios de S.M. Parte quinta.

      Mexico: Reimpresa ... por don Felipe Zúñiga y Ontiveros Small 4to (19.2; 7.5"). 76 pp.. 1785 The expulsion of the Jesuits from Spain and its empire in 1767 created a nightmarishly complex bureaucratic system for accounting for everything confiscated from the Jesuits and reporting to the crown on the sale and disposition of all of it, down to => every book in every library! Here in this compendium of new rules and regulations, the fifth in a series, we see that nearly 20 years after the expulsion, the process is still being tweaked and prodded. Searches of NUC and WorldCat finds only one copy (Harvard); the copy reported in the Sutro published catalogue is not findable in its OPAC. Sewn as issued but lacking original plain wrappers. Worming in upper margins. Oil-like staining at rear, most noticeable on last five leaves. A very good copy.

        The principles of moral and political philosophy.

      4to., (4) vii (1) xxi (1) vi 657 (1)pp., including the half-title, contemporary dark green calf with ornately gilt borders, sometime neatly rebacked, with gilt lines and lettered. A very good copy with the mid-19th century armorial bookplate of S.F. Steele Perkins Esq. and the earlier signature of Shirley Perkins on title-page. This was the first of Paley's four principal contributions to philosophical thought - it was followed by Horae Paulinae (1790), A view of the evidences of Christianity (1794), and Natural theology (1802). Although not an original thinker, Paley was "surely an independent one" [Professor Victor L. Nuovo in Dict. E.C.B. Philosophers]. Tutored by Edmund Law at Cambridge in the 1760s, he was, like Law, a critical disciple of Locke's school. Paley's Principles, however, addresses a broad range of subjects including property ownership, slavery (an "odious institution"), the treatment of "domestics and dependents" (not to be refused "harmless pleasures" and not to be insulted by "harsh, scornful, or opprobrious language"), marriage, adultery and divorce, the right of self-defence, civil liberty and crime and punishment. In 1785, William Paley was Archdeacon of Carlisle.

        Essays on the Intellectual Powers of Man.

      Printed for John Bell and G.G.J. & J. Robinson, Edinburgh 1785 - TP + [iii]-xii + [1]-766 + [1]-2 = Publisher's Advertisements, Quarto. First Edition.Reid's mature statement of "Common Sense" Philosophy" which he developed in opposition to David Hume's skepticism. The influence of the "common sense school" spread far beyond philosophers and it had a profound influence in America. It supplied more than just a set of opinions: it established a way of thinking. Although the school of common sense had lost its authority well before the end of the 19th century, Reid continued to influence individual thinkers (a notable example being Charles Peirce) and when G. E. Moore made common sense a topic of great importance in recent philosophy, interest in Reid revived. He has more than just a historical claim on contemporary attention. This work is frequently reprinted with Essays on the Active Powers of Man (1788) as a combined work. Contemporary boards with some scratching to both front and back. Expert rebacked. Spine with six compartments and the author and title gilt lettering on a red field. The first and last couple of pages are darkened around the outside edges. Otherwise, this is a very pretty copy of this culminating work by Thomas Reid. ADDITIONAL PHOTOS AVAILABLE UPON REQUEST. [Attributes: First Edition]

        The warwoven from Chile

      London, 1785. Fine condition.. Original watercolour on paper with faint outline of engraving, 250 x 360 mm., signed and dated lower right. An original watercolour by the highly regarded artist William Hayes (1727-1799) Despite a complete lack of training in any field, Hayes discovered a natural aptitude for painting birds. His first book, A Natural History of British Birds, 1775, was fifteen years in the making, and many of the birds were drawn from life either during field trips or from specimens he kept in captivity. Others were drawn from specimens sent to him by the Duchess of Portland's birdkeeper. In the mid-1780s Hayes went to live at Southall, a short walk from Osterly Park. Osterly, remodelled by Robert Adam in the 1760s, was owned by the Childs. Like the Duchess of Portland, Sarah Child was an enthusiastic collector of exotic birds. When Horace Walpole visited Osterly Park in 1773, he admired "the menagerie full of birds that came from a 1000 islands, which Mr. Banks has not yet discovered". The Childs commissioned Hayes to paint portraits of a number of their live birds, as did John Montagu, the fourth Earl of Sandwich.Following the deaths of Montagu and both Robert and Sarah Child, Hayes was left without a patron and in severe financial straits with ten children to support (of the twenty-one he had fathered). He decided to turn the numerous drawings and more than sixty etched copper plates that he had used for his Rare and Curious Birds Accurately Drawn from Specimens in the Menagery at Osterly Park, into a larger work, which he dedicated to Thomas Pennant, and sold on a subscription basis.The birds Hayes chose to depict demonstrate the taste for New World species that prevailed at the end of the eighteenth century, a taste fuelled by news of recent discoveries - this lovely work of a Chilean bird is a fine example of the exotic.
