Edition originale, avec une typographie différente de la seconde édition parue la même année.

Une des meilleures relations que l'on ait faite sur la Syrie et l'Égypte, composée par l'historien, linguiste, spécialiste des langues de l'Orient le comte de Volney (1757-1787).

Joseph II, Holy Roman Emperor]. [Franciscus Mayer, artist]
Vienna, 1787. Folio in 2s (360 x 305 mm). 10 vellum sheets, folded once to produce 20 pages. German Fraktur script, 3 elaborately engraved rococo borders by Fredericus Mayer; calligraphic text throughout in an accomplished hand (no doubt Viennese), 9 large ink borders in manuscript (ca. 250 x 50 mm), and one full-page engraved coat-of-arms of the recipient, BEAUTIFULLY ILLUMINATED in gold and colors. Bound in contemporary red velvet over boards (well worn), at front and back a paper binder's blank followed by a blank vellum leaf; evidence of four pairs of silk ties, large knotted gold and fabric cord with two knotted tassels preserved, typically adorned with a large seal not present here, decorated paper pastedowns. Signed by Joseph II of Austria (1765-1790), Holy Roman Emperor. Every word in this Patent of Nobility (a.k.a. "diploma") is handwritten in beautiful calligraphic script. Furthermore, there are 9 large and very fine vignette drawings, almost certainly created by the calligrapher himself as the application and color of the ink is often almost indistinguishable from that of the script. Our volume was written by a calligrapher of consummate ability. It is probable that this is the individual who signed his monogram at the foot of the vingette on fol. 3v: "F. L. M. G." The present Habsburg diploma exhibits the influence of the Rococo on the book arts in Austria through the end of the 18th century -- and even into the 19th. It belongs to a very specific type of document that was issued not only by Maria Theresa of Austria, but her son Joseph II (as here), his son Leop … [Click Below for Full Description]

[LARDIN, Jules?].
France, 1787. Small folio (315 × 230 mm), some sheets shorter, 84 leaves (all but one bound in), wove paper, each with a single watercolour design. A few stubs. Occasional brown offsets from the heaviest portions of colouring, but generally very clean. Early basket grain cloth. Slightly rubbed. A series of anonymous watercolours, with numerous floral borders and vignettes, but also including 20 lovely compositions with books, journals, bundles of letters, music, a writing desk, a watercolour stand, inkwells and pocket books. The style is very much in the Empire taste, and the flower painting is exquisite. The volume appears to have been bound from loose sheets, many of which may have been destined as title pages for some uncompleted album project: a few have tiny marginal notes in ink giving a volume number and several are ruled in pencil for the addition of text. Many bear the monogram 'AD' and some the name Délie, together with dedications 'À toi' or 'À elle', as though all were in some way dedications to a sweetheart or perhaps a child. There is a slightly morbid air to some, towards the end, which depict tombs, memorials and a deathbed scene. Among other subjects are a billiard room, a pet dog in a basket and two most inviting beds. A modern manuscript note loosely inserted connects the album to Jules Lardin (1787-71), poet, musician and dilettante. Lardin is known to have created designs for tickets and publicity for concerts and to have made several albums, so this attribution is quite possible. The identity of 'Délie' is another question. .

Petit manque en marge de deux feuillets, sans atteinte au texte. Édition originale de cet important ouvrage en gemmologie. Les recherches de Brisson sur la densité, présentées ici pour la première fois, étaient en effet suffisamment précises pour permettre aux gemmologues de faire la distinction entre pierres précieuses authentiques et les fausses. Brisson (1723-1806) fut "un pionnier de la gemmologie scientifique car il reconnaissait des différences de valeur constantes entre les différentes espèces de pierres précieuses et invitait celles-ci à être utilisées comme moyen d'identification en conjonction avec la couleur et des caractéristiques extérieures évidentes, notamment la forme des cristaux, la dureté et la simple ou double réfraction.

L'opera appartiene ad una serie omogenea di 14 vedute della città incise da lucchese Ferdinando Fambrini verosibilmente a partire dal 1786/87. Dietro al nome dell'incisore, al cui nome le opere sono legate, rivela il ruolo determinante delle due figure egenoni dell'ambiente artistico e della cultura figurativa pisana del seconodo setteccento, quali il pittore Giovan Battista Tempesti e Alessandro da Morrona. A quest'utlimo si può forse attribuire l'iniziativa e la scelta iconografica delle opere pubblicate dal Fambrini. Il luogo di stampa potrebbe essere sia Pisa che Lucca. View of the Ponte di Mezzo, in Pisa. In addition to the bridge, are represented and reported in the caption:Torre dell'Orologio, Palazzo Pretorio, Logge di Banchi, Palazzo del Pubblico , Dogana and church of S. Cristina. Etching, signed at the lower right. A very good impression, on contemporary laid paper, with margins, perfect condition. Rare.

La première édition française verra le jour en 1786 sous le titre : Le souterrain. Reiure anglaise en plein veau blond glacé moucheté. Dos isse orné de filets. Pièce de titre et de tomaison en maroquin rouge. Double filet d'encadrement sur les plats. Traces de frottement.

Ex libris aux armes maculées sous la Révolution, ""De la bibliothèque de Laussat"". Second ex libris : J. C. Courbin. A l'instar du Château d'Otrante de Walpole, Le souterrain est un des premiers romans gothiques, non encore habité des recettes et des stéréotypes qui épuiseront le genre lui-même, mais il contient déjà tous les ingrédients qui en feront le succès : spleen, mélancolie, effroi, décor de château et d'abbaye en ruine, secrets qui planent sur une naissance obscure. Ce roman signe surtout la supériorité de la fiction romanesque anglaise, et une trame et une écriture romanesque beaucoup plus mûre et fournie que ne l'était Le château d'Otrante. Deux soeurs vivent dans le souterrain d'un château, le roman déploiera peu à peu la découverte de cette étrange situation.

Remains of verso guard where laid down overwritten in another hand, annotated at foot of second page in a later hand, "(To Lord Auckland.)" Browned with a few areas of discolouration or marks, tiny wear and puncture to left edge not obscuring text, else in very good condition. Autograph letter signed to Pitt's close advisor William Eden, at the time at the height of his influence as envoy to France, in which Pitt attempts to gauge potential French support for the early Abolitionist movement spearheaded by his friend and political ally, William Wilberforce. "You have had a letter from my friend Wilberforce, on a scheme which may appear to some people chimerical but which I really believe may with proper management be made practicable. If it can, I am sure it is an object well worth attending to and perhaps you may be able to learn the private sentiments of the French Government upon it … to Judge whether it can be carried further. I mean the idea of the two nations agreeing to discontinue the villainous traffic now carried on in Africa". 1787 saw the foundation of the Society for the Abolition of the Slave Trade, and was also the year in which Wilberforce took political leadership of the Abolition movement. Although Pitt's support for the movement to abolish slavery was unflagging throughout his tenure as Prime Minister, the eventual abolition of the trade would not occur until a year after his death, in 1807.

Thomas-François de Grace le continua jusqu'en 1796 ; puis il fut repris par Mordant-DelaunayThe work has been published in one hundred and fifty-three editions. The 152nd edition was published in 1962. It was reissued in 1992 for a 153rd edition made up of three volumes. With the exception of 1815 and 1871 [1], the years when Paris was besieged, the title appeared each year without interruption until 1914. Since that date, only four editions have been published, called the Horticultural Encyclopedia, because of their volume and their content each time fully revised. The last publication, that of 1992, is the 153rd! This is the second series of yearly publication taken by M. de Grace in 1778. Original leather binding with corner chips and spine edges cracked.

Langstroth served as a Quaker minister in Europe and in South Philadelphia. "He wrote and published a Watchword to Friends. It breathes a spirit of pure love, and manifests his heart-felt concern for the safety and preservation of Friends, at a time when it might be said, "In quietness and confidence shall be your strength." - Friends Miscellany, V.2, 36-41 p. Langstroth's statement of peace, love and faith was made in an especially trying time when the tenants of Quaker pacifism were being strained by the demands for armed revolution against the British monarchy. A reaffirming Quaker statement of principle after the American Revolution.

2 volumes ; titre gravé, 258 À Paris, chez l'auteur, 1787, in-4, 2 volumes ; titre gravé, 258 pp, 96 pl. + titre gravé, 176 pp, 96 pl, basane marbrée de l'époque, dos à nerfs et fleuronnés, pièces de titre havane et tomaisons rouge, tranches dorées, Ces deux volumes, concernant les pierres gravées et les camées, constituent la première partie de l'édition française du catalogue du grand duc de Toscane, en huit volumes, faite d'après la somptueuse édition originale latine, le Museum Florentinum rédigé par Gori (1731-1742). L'ouvrage a été conçu de manière à se rendre accessible, "en changeant son format, en diminuant le faste de l'édition" (T. I, p. III), et en passant du latin au français. David a ainsi regravé les planches, tandis que Mulot a donné les textes en français, sans s'astreindre à une traduction littérale, puisqu'il est l'auteur de nombreux ajouts et corrections. Reliures usagées, mais de bonne tenue. Bon état intérieur, en dépit de quelques salissures. Déchirure dans manque à une planche [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
