        THE DEED OF SETTLEMENT OF THE SOCIETY FOR INSURING HOUSES, IN AND NEAR PHILADELPHIA [caption title].

      [Philadelphia. ]. 1787 - 8pp. printed on a single folded sheet. Quarto. Docketed in manuscript in the margin of the final page. Three tears along the spine fold, with no loss; five small tears in two horizontal folds, affecting about ten words. Overall, still a very good copy of this ephemeral item. In a half morocco box. A very rare document detailing the early history of the "Philadelphia Contributionship," the oldest property insurance company in North America, and still in operation to this day. Benjamin Franklin was one of the founding directors of the contributionship and wrote most of the text printed here in 1751, when the original charter of the company was drawn up (see Miller). The present printing of the "Deed of Settlement" of the Philadelphia Contributionship includes four additional by- laws, added to the company's charter in 1763, 1769, 1781, and 1787. The main text explains the company's means for insuring their subscribers against loss from fire, setting forth in great detail their policies and operating methods. Not in Evans, Bristol, or Shipton and Mooney. NAIP locates only two copies, at the American Antiquarian Society and the Library of Congress. An important and rare document in the early development of the American insurance industry. NAIP w037889. MILLER 542 (ref).

      London: Printed for J.F. and C. Rivington, and others. The Second Edition.. Very good overall condition with only minor signs of external wear. This seems to be a large paper edition. Extremely rare !. The Second Edition. London, Printed for J.F. and C. Rivington, and others, 1787. 14.5 cm x 21,5 cm. Pagination: Portraitfrontispiece of Thomas Sheridan, III, (2), Portrait - Engraving of Jonathan Swift, (14), 488 pages. Hardcover. Original 18th century calf with richly gilted ornamenting on spine and boards and with the original spinelabel intact. The hinges a little weak but holding. All edges gilt with original, beautifully marbled endpapers well preserved. Interior wonderfully preserved and clean. Two previous, contemporary ownernames in ink (J.Turner, 1806 and M.Peele, 1787). Very good overall condition with only minor signs of external wear. This seems to be a large paper edition. Extremely rare ! Thomas Sheridan (1687 ?- 10 October 1738) was an Anglican divine, essayist, playwright, poet, schoolmaster and translator. He is chiefly remembered for his friendship with Jonathan Swift. He was born in Cavan, Ireland, the son of James Sheridan, and grandson of the Reverend Dennis Sheridan. Two of his uncles were William Sheridan, Bishop of Kilmore and Ardagh and Patrick Sheridan, Bishop of Cloyne. After graduating from Trinity College, Dublin, he married Elizabeth MacFadden and the couple first lived in Dublin in King James's Mint. He inherited from his father-in-law a substantial property at Quilca in County Cavan. He ran a school in Capel Street, Dublin in the 1720s whose pupils included children of many prominent families such as Anthony Foster, the future Chief Baron of the Irish Exchequer. He was father of Thomas Sheridan, a celebrated actor and elocutionist who was the father of Richard Brinsley Sheridan; he had two other sons and one daughter. In 1725 he was appointed a royal chaplain, but preached a sermon which was considered by some to be politically suspect, and his appointment was cancelled. In compensation he was given a living at Drumlane in Cavan and in 1735 became headmaster of the Cavan Royal School where he remained for three years. Other appointments he is reputed to have applied for were the position of Dean of Kilmore and the position of headmaster of the Royal School in Armagh, but neither were successful. He was friends with Jonathan Swift, and had a room permanently reserved for him in the Deanery; he was his principal collaborator and wrote his biography. Swift often stayed at Sheridan's country house and wrote part of Gulliver's Travels there. On the much debated question of whether Swift was secretly married to Esther Johnson ("Stella") Sheridan was a strong if not conclusive witness that the marriage did take place; according to friends his source was Stella herself. Like so many of Swift's friends, he was ultimately fated to quarrel with him irrevocably: apart from Swift's increasing eccentricity, perhaps insanity, the cause of the quarrel is obscure. Sheridan collapsed and died suddenly while having dinner at a friend's house in Rathfarnham, County Dublin. Swift before their final quarrel called him the best scholar in Ireland; Sir Walter Scott in his Life of Swift calls him "good- natured and light- hearted." (Wikipedia)

        DESCRIPCION DE DIFERENTES PIEZAS DE HISTORIA NATURAL. LAS MAS DEL RAMO MARITIMO, REPRESENTADAS EN SETENTA Y CINCO LAMINAS.

      Havana. 1787. - [2],4,195,[5]pp. plus seventy-five copper plate engravings (two folding, one [plate 49] in facsimile). Small quarto. Contemporary mottled calf, spine gilt, leather label. Light wear to extremities, boards slightly scuffed. Minor foxing and soiling. Very good. A most important book of Caribbean natural history and an outstanding example of Cuban book printing. In addition to being the first scientific work published in Cuba, Parra's book stands as the first example of Cuban printing illustrated with copper plates, and Trelles goes so far as to call it the first book of any importance published in Cuba. As an example of Caribbean book printing, it is hard to imagine a book of greater interest. The work's status as an early Havana imprint alone makes it important, but the original scientific content combined with the exquisitely detailed engravings make it nothing short of extraordinary. The plates, drawn and engraved by the author's son, Manuel, illustrate all manner of crabs, fish, sponges, corals, etc., discovered by Parra along the Cuban shoreline. Each species is illustrated in conjunction with a physical description. Concerning the lobster, Parra writes: "The meat is edible and most scrumptious with oil and vinegar." The first two folding plates depict elaborate specimen cabinets containing crustaceans and netted fish. The last three plates illustrate an unfortunate black man afflicted with hydrocele. Parra was born in Tavira, Portugal and arrived in Havana in 1766 on commission by the Spanish government to collect specimens for the museum of natural history in Madrid. In addition to the present work, he produced a descriptive catalogue of the fish and crustaceans native to the island, which is also excessively rare. The collation recorded by the NUC, which locates seven copies, is wrong, as is that in Sabin. A magnificent example of early Caribbean book production. Rare. SABIN 58835. PALAU 213307. NISSEN ZBI 3094. TRELLES, BIBLIOGRAFIA CUBANA, pp.149-50. MEDINA (HAVANA) 90. APPLETON'S CYCLOPÆDIA IV, p.658. LeCLERC 1354,1355.

Costanzo) and 20 engraved illustrations in the text (by G. Patania and A. Di Bella). A very nice copy.FIRST EDITION of Meli's complete works. Meli is considered one of the most important Italian dialect poets. A first collection of his works in five volumes, not containing the Favole morali, had appeared in Palermo in 1787.This edition includes the Bucolica, the Lirica, the Poems, inspired by a sincere love for nature, the Fate Galanti, which is the narrative of a philosophical-allegorical journey made by author under the guidance of a fairy, the satirical heroic poem Don Chisciotti e Sancii Panza, clearly inspired by Cervantes' masterpiece, and finally the Poesie e favuli morali.Meli writes in the Sicilian dialect, but his Sicilian is a learned language, in which he transposes the manner and terms of literary Italian.Giovanni Meli was born in Palermo. After the first education received by the Jesuits, he studied medicine, graduating in 1764. For a time he practiced in Cinisi. Back in Palermo, in 1787 he obtained the chair of chemistry. Despite the success of his poetry, which was read and imitated by Foscolo, Leopardi and even Goethe, Meli died poor. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Historia de Christo paciente

      The first book printed in Colombia, an American incunable. 1787. Bogota. Antonio Espinosa de los Monteros. Two volumes in 4to (195 mm x 140 mm). 1 [blank] + 230 + 4 ff.; 264 + 4 ff. + 1 [blank], lacking 2 leaves, I: A4-5, with facsimiles laid in. Contemporary vellum, not entirely uniform, different in size; some soiling, but overall fine. Damp staining in places, however generally a fresh and clean example of this Colombian incunable.Regarded as the first "book" printed in what is now Colombia. It is in fact the most voluminous work printed up to that date in Colombia, where printing had begun nearly 50 years ago with a small Jesuit imprint of which only minor devotional works are know (as the Septenario al Corazon Doloroso de Maria Santisima" and "Novena del Sagrado Corazon de Jesus), none over a few pages long; and other Montero imprints, none comparable in nature to this undertaking, a remarkable produce of the Colombian presses, "una belleza noable" (Vergara y Versara).The task of printing such a translation was not easy, starting for the scarcity of the paper, of which the printer had to use up to 5 different batches: "El papel, de hilo, parece ser de distintas procedencias, pues se observan las siguientes filigranas" (Medina), Palau, who probably never saw, states that Medina describes it, referring to the 5 different kinds of paper in it; and describes a copy for sale of only volume 2, nearly 100 years ago.The work was translated by the Colombian Priest Jose Luis de Anzula y Lozano (1754 ?" 1826) from Stanihurst's "Dei immortalis in corpore mortali patientis historia" (1660). The translation is kept away from Gongorismos.The rarity is considerable; we have only been able to trace 2 copies in the United States (Indiana University, and University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill), one in Spain (Biblioteca Museo Victor Balaguer, Cataluña, not mentioning the 4 ff. at the end of each volume), and one in Colombia (Biblioteca Luis Angel Arango). We could also trace no copies offered at auction in over 100 years.Medina, Bogota, 15. Woodbridge, Printing in Colonial Spanish America, pp. 93-4. Palau, 115107.

        Tableau général de l'empire Othoman, divisé en deux parties, dont l'une comprend la Législation Mahométane; l'autre, l'Histoire de l'Empire Othoman. Dédié au roi de Suede. Two volumes (of three). Paris, de l'Imprimerie de Monsieur, 1787 - 1790.

      Large folio. Pp. (vi), xii, 320, (8) with extra engraved title, four tables (A, AA, B and C) and 24 engraved plates illustrating 38 figures; pp. (iv), viii, 357 with 41 engraved plates depicting two tables and 95 figures. As often figures 13 and 19 (volume one) are not present because these images were printed later and consequently delivered after the publication of the book. Several of the plates are double page. A handsome copy in contemporary half calf, expertly rebacked. Bookplates (Hammer; HJ Lundgren). First edition of this monumental work on the Ottoman empire printed by the renowned French typographer Pierre - François Didot, and illustrated by the foremost French artists of the time. Mouradja D'Ohsson was an Ottoman Armenian dragoman in the service of the Swedish embassy in Constantinople. He was ennobled in 1780 by the Swedish king Gustav III and Ohsson gratefully dedicated his work to the monarch. After his death a third volume was completed by his son in 1820. "Writing in a fraught political context following the Russian defeat of the Ottomans, Ohsson forthrightly cast his publication as a defense of Islam and the Ottoman Empire. More than a textual apology, his illustrated book embodies a supreme act of cultural crossing." (Fraser, "Dressing Turks in the French Manner"). His work is devoted to the Ottoman history, Muslim practices and contemporary life including information about dress, architecture and cooking. It's praised because of it's authencity and the images "naive truth". Because of his connections with the court hierachy he had access to official annals. The impressive illustrations are derived from paintings made in Istanbul, either copies of earlier works (imperial portraits or illuminated manuscripts) or original works. Through his official connections he was able to get drawings of the interiors of libraries, mosques, chapels, etc. Atabey 846. Blackmer 1164.

        Sammandrag af Justitiae-Radets Herr Casten [!] Niebuhrs Resa i Levanten och Beskrifning om Arabien.

      Stockholm, Kongl. Ordens-Tryckeriet, 1787. - 8vo. (24), 455, (23) pp. With 4 engr. plates. Contemp. half calf with gilt and red title label on spine. Extremely rare sole edition of this account of the Niebuhr expedition to Arabia in the 1760s. Produced as a cheaper alternative to the hefty 3-volume sets which appeared in German, Danish, French, and other languages, the present work was printed by the Royal press and gives a summary of the journey intended for a popular audience. Swedish interest in the expedition was elicited by the presence of the Swedish botanist and explorer Peter Forsskål in Niebuhr's caravan. After studying Arabic dialects, Forsskål was the first to scientifically describe many plants of the Arabian Peninsula, before dying in Yemen of malaria in 1763. - The plates, modeled after those of the German edition of 1772, depict a Turkish Pilgrim to Mecca; an Arab woman in a hijab, with an inset detail of a burkha; an Arab farm-girl from the 'Coffee Mountains' of southern Arabia; and an Arab nobleman of Yemen. - Binding rather rubbed; blank margin of first few leaves a little toned, otherwise a very good copy, clean and fresh. OCLC shows just 3 copies worldwide: the University of Texas, the Swedish National Library, and the Danish National Library. No copy seen at Anglo-American auction since 1999. OCLC 156793368.

Erste Ausgabe, in einer Auflage von nur 50 Exemplaren erschienen. - Descriptio Austria S. 184. Austria Picta 25.1. Döflinger S. 64 f: "Anders verhält es sich mit der auf der Josephinischen Landesaufnahme basierenden zwölfblättrigen 'Mappa von dem Land ob der Enns (1787, Maßstab 1 : 864000)': Erst nach wiederholtem Ansuchen der oberösterreichischen Stände gab Joseph II. seine Einwilligung, von der 1772 vollendeten Aufnahme des Landes ob der Enns in bezug auf die Abbildung des Geländes veränderte (perspektivische Darstellung anstatt der für militärische Zwecke weit besser geeigneten Grundrißzeichnung) Reduktion anfertigen und diese unter strengsten Sicherheitsvorkehrungen von den Wiener Stechern Carl Schütz und Franz Müller in der Wiener Ingenieurakademie gravieren zu lassen. 1787 war die sogenannte 'Ständische Karte von Oberösterreich' dann endgültig zum Druck bereit, und die Stände erhielten 50 Exemplare, die aber nur an bestimmte Mitglieder abgegeben werden durften. Wie wirkungsvoll diese Maßnahmen zum Schutz vor Mißbrauch waren, beweist der Umstand, daß die Franzosen erst bei der Besetzung von Linz (1800 / 1801) in den Besitz von zwei Exemplaren der trotz aller Umarbeitungen überaus wertvollen Karte kamen". - "Die in monumentalem Stil ausgeführte dekorative Titelumrahmung zeigt im Vordergrund ausgewählte Produkte, die den Reichtum des Landes symbolisieren, und im Hintergrund eine malerische Donaulandschaft" (Austria Picta). - Gute Abdrucke auf Honig-Papier. - Leicht gebräunt und vereinzelt etw. fleckig.

        Critik der reinen Vernunft (Critique of Pure Reason)

      Riga: Johann Friedrich Hartknoch, 1787. Second revised. Very Good +/none. KANT, Immanuel. Critik der reinen Vernunft (Critique of Pure Reason). Johann Friedrich Hartknoch, Riga, 1787. 1 blank leaf TP + 2 leaves = Dedication + [VII]-XLIV = Vorrede + [1]-884, [with pages 454 through 489 unnumbered as usual], Octavo. Second Edition. [Warda 60]Kants masterpiece, the book that made him world-famous, and arguably the most important book of philosophy published in modern times. "Kants great achievement was to conclude finally the line on which philosophical speculation had proceeded in the eighteenth century, and to open up a new and more comprehensive system of dealing with the problems of philosophy" (PMM, p. 137). Having been woken from his "dogmatic slumbers" by his reading of Hume, Kant went on to effect a "Copernican" revolution in philosophy -- the effects of which have not yet subsided.The so-called "B" text which Kant heavily revised and which must be compared and contrasted with the original first edition "A" text. Almost all modern editions and translations blend elements of both the "A" and the "B" versions of the text.Kant included here his own substantive amplifications, corrections, and improvements, noting some but not all of these in the new Introduction. At the time, Kant considered this to be the "definitive edition," but made further incorporations in the 1790 edition. Today, philosophers still think it necessary to have both the "A" and "B" versions of the text available when studying the work.CONDITION: Contemporary half-leather with marbled boards. Spine with surface/visual cracking only to leather, but solid. Beautiful contemporary hand-scripted label to spine. Light scuffing to boards.
