        Collection de pièces relatives à la fondation faite par le testament de dame Françoise-Eléonore de Montchannin-Marzac, marquise de Saint George, du 25 juin 1761, reçu par Ramey, notaire royal au bourg de Renaison en Forez, de 6000 livres de rente perpétuelle, exemptes de toutes retenues, en faveur de trente pauvres incurables ou vieillards choisis dans les douze paroisses de Saint-Igny-de-Vers, de Saint-Raco, ou Deun-le-Roi, de Mazille, de Chassigny, de Saint-Nizier-sous-Charlieu, de Feurs, de Saint-Germain-la-Montagne, de Saint-André, d'Ouches, d'Arçon, de Renaison & de l'Annexe des Noés, dont l'exécution est ordonnée par arrêt de la Cour de Parlement du 7 septembre 1786.

Rarissime détail de fondation charitable, comme il en était d'usage dans la noblesse, et qui fut établie en faveur d'un ensemble de petites paroisses du Forez, qui faisaient partie de l'héritage paternel de Françoise-Eléonore de Montchanin-Marzac : issue d'une ancienne famille de la région de Montbrison, elle avait épousé en 1729 Claude de Saint-Georges, marquis de Saint-André-en-Forez (aujourd'hui Saint-André d'Apchon). L'arrêt d'homologation et la transaction placés en début d'ouvrage donnent quantité de détails généalogiques sur les familles de Montchanin, Saint-Georges, etc. Aucun exemplaire répertorié au CCF.

        Letters on Egypt ( 2 Volumes ) With a Parallel between the Manners of its ancient and modern inhabitants, the Present state, the Commerce, the Agriculture, and Government of that Country, and an Account of the Descent of St. Lewis at Damietta; extracted from Joinville, and Arabian authors

      G. G. J. and J. Robinson, London 1786 - Hardcover. 8vo. Two volumes. xxiv + 568 pp & xxxvi + 596 pp. Contemporary full leather with elaborately tooled gilt decorations to spine, gilt fleurons around margins of boards, marbled endpapers, Two fold-out maps and one fold-out plan of the Great Pyramid in Vol. I. (possibly lacking a third map - though there is no sign of one ever having been bound in, and sources differ as to whether one is called for or not). Savary, an Arabic speaker, travelled in Egypt between 1776 to 1779, and is remembered as the first Frenchman to cite Arabic sources in his writings. His book became something of a 'Bible' for Europeans travelling in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries, although some suggested bitterly he downplayed the harshness of the environment. Boards lightly chafed, spines rubbed with light bruising to ends, corners bumped and lightly rubbed, ownership signature - unmarked otherwise. Overall a sound and internally fresh VG set. A very attractive copy of a work that is genuinely scarce in this First English edition. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Oeuvres Complettes de Madame Riccoboni

      90 - Paris - Desray 1786 - A bright, scarce set of the Works of Madame Riccoboni. Bound in the original eighteenth century calfleather with gilt lettering and decoration. Very hard to find and often seen only in the single volumes which can commandover 100 eachA New Edition, reviewed and augmented by the author. Volumes III - VIII only. Missing Volumes I and II. With an armorial nameplate for Lord Rendlesham on the front pastedowns. Marie-Jeanne Riccoboni, 1714 1792, was a French novelist. In 1735 she married Antoine Franois Riccoboni, a comedian and dramatist, from whom she soon separated. She herself was an actress and had moderate success on the stage. Madame Riccoboni's work is among the most eminent examples of the sensibility novel; among the parallels cited in English literature are works by Laurence Sterne and Samuel Richardson. A still nearer parallel may be found in the work of Henry Mackenzie. Riccoboni was also the editor of a periodical L'Abeille, wrote a novel on the subject of Fielding's Amelia, and supplied in 1765 a continuation of Marivaux's unfinished Marianne. Riccoboni also corresponded with such luminaries as Pierre Choderlos de Laclos, author of Les Liaisons Dangeureuses, as well as David Hume and the theater celebrity David Garrick. Condition: The bindings are generally tight and firm. The front hinge of volume 3 is held by one cord only, and the front hinge of volume 4 is held by the cords. Thesecould detach in the post, even after careful packaging. Therear hinges of volumes 4 and 8are starting. The front hinges of volumes5 and 8 are starting. There is some wear to the extremities, including some bumping and rubbing. Internally the pages have some slight browning, and the occasional spot. Overall the condition is good only due to detached boards, with a very good interior. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Blauer Steinschmerzen (blue bird)

      - Carl Wilhelm Hahn (1786-1836) Original watercolors for Abbildungen Und Beschreibungen Merkwurdiger Naturgeschichtlicher Gegenstande Printed in Nuremberg 1816-1822 72 natural history hand-colored engravings including birds by Carl Wilhelm Hahn 10 1/2&#148; x 8&#148;; 16 1/2&#148; x 14 1/2&#148; framed (professionally framed with a beautiful gold leaf moulding with all archival materials and uv plexiglass) Carl Wilhelm Hahn was a German scientist of natural history, studying the nature of birds as well as spiders. His primary focus was devoted to the study of spiders which resulted in a publication of over 3,000 images entitled, Monograph of Spinner and Die Arachnidan, completed only after his death in 1857. He was also quite fascinated with ornithological studies which resulted in the collaboration of the publication of a two volume work with Johann Wolf, Abbildungen Und Beschreibengen Merkwurdiger naturgeschichtlicher Gegenstande (translated as The Natural History of Unusual Birds and other Animals with Illustations and Desciptions) published in Nuremberg from 1816-1822. These extraordinary original watercolors of a blue bird and parrot were two of only a few of Hahn&#146;s studies used in this publication. The detail and accuracy of this painting are lovely. Hahn was concerned not only with the scientific accuracy of the Ibis, but also capturing the individuality and characteristic traits of its personality.

        A Voyage to the Cape of Good Hope, towards the Antarctic Polar Circle, and Round the World: but chiefly into the Country of the Hottentots and Caffres, from the year 1772 to 1776

      London:: Printed for G G J and J Robinson,. 1786.. Second edition and most complete. Hardcover. Very good condition. Anders Sparrman was a Swedish naturalist, abolitionist, son of a clergyman and an apostle of Carl Linnaeus. At the age of nine he enrolled at Uppsala University, beginning medical studies at fourteen and becoming one of the outstanding pupils of Linnaeus. In 1765 he went on a voyage to China as ship&#39;s doctor, returning two years later and describing the animals and plants he had encountered. On this voyage he met Carl Gustaf Ekeberg. He sailed for the Cape of Good Hope in January 1772 to take up a post as a tutor. Sparrman, traveled to the Cape in early 1772 on a botanical expedition sponsored by the Swedish government and made several excursions into the country in search of natural history specimens. When James Cook arrived there later in the year at the start of his second voyage, Sparrman was taken on as assistant naturalist to Johann and Georg Forster. For the next three years he served with Cook and although in his "Voyage" he devotes only 24 pages to the Cook expedition, he does include an account of a narrow escape from collision of Cook&#146;s two ships, the Adventure and the Resolution, not recorded elsewhere. After the voyage he returned to Cape Town in July 1775 and practiced medicine, earning enough to finance a journey into the interior. (Cox). Sparrman&#146;s account of his explorations into Africa is important for its natural history and anthropological observations of Southern Africa and is, according to Theal, "the most trustworthy account of the Cape Colony and the various races of people then residing in it, that has been published in the 18th century" (Mendelssohn II, 414-15), (Withey, 201). First issued in Swedish in 1783; the English translation first appeared in London earlier in 1785. Cox I, 386; Holmes, Captain James Cook: A Bibliographical Excursion, 54; Spence 1147; Rosove 316.C1 (citing it as "scarce"); Beddie 1277, Conrad p. 14; Chavanne 5731. & & This is the second English edition, considered the most correct and complete according to Rolf du Rietz in the Kroepelien catalogue. Two volumes, 4to, xxviii, 368pp with frontispiece and two plates & viii, 356pp, I [addendum & directions to the book-]binder, (1), 2 [advertisements]; 7 unlisted plates and one fold out map (in the 1st volume, with a 3" closed tear at hinge expertly strengthened). In total, ten engraved plates and a folding map. An exceptionally clean copy, bound in period brown tree calf, gilt decorated spine in 6 compartments, with the original maroon title label & volume numbers. A very pleasant copy overall of the best edition, which Rosove calls "scarce".
