        Gott. Einige Gespræche, (God. Some Conversations).

      Karl Wilhelm Ettinger, Gotha 1787 - TP + [III]-VIII + [1]-252, small Octavo. "In opposition to the emphatic dualism, which Kant affirms between the empirical material and the a priori form of thought, Herder puts forward the profounder idea of an essential unity and a gradual development in nature and mind. His cosmical philosophy culminates in a poetic Spinozism, filled with the idea of the personality of the divine spirit and of immortality (conceived as a metempsychosis - a form of Spinozism, therefore, similar to that exemplified in those works of Spinoza's which preceded the Ethics [although this form, historically, was unknown in Herder's time], and less removed from the doctrine of Bruno). This philosophy he developed connectedely in the work entitled "God, Dialogues Concerning Spinoza's System (1787)." Ueberweg II, p. 201 (giving the correct date for the first edition but using the expanded title that only appeared in the second edition of 1800.) Contemporary rubbed paste boards. Paper label to spine with contemporary brown k lettering. Some browning and foxing but, overall, a lovely copy. PHOTOS AVAILABLE UPON REQUEST. [Attributes: First Edition]

        A View in Matavai Bay, Otaheite

      London: J. Webber, No. 312 Oxford Street, 1787. Aquatint, 290 x 430 mm, crisp impression with full margins, mounted. Scarce separately-issued Prestel aquatint. Rare aquatint issue of one of the most romantic and tropical scenes encountered during Cook's voyage. The image had earlier been trialled as a line etching in November 1786, but Webber decided instead to experiment with the newly-arrived aquatint technique in collaboration with Marie Catherine Prestel 'an aquatint artist of some note, who had recently come to London from Frankfurt' (Joppien & Smith, p. 192). Webber found that the aquatint method 'allowed greater freedom and a wider range of evocative tones of light and shade' (Joppien & Smith). He ultimately prepared four aquatints with her, this one amongst them.

        EXTRAIT des registres de l'Academie Royale des Sciences. Du 20 Juin 1787. Rapport des Commissaires chargés des Projets relatifs à l'établissment des quatre Hôpitaux.

      Imprimerie Royale, Paris 1787 - 4to (269x210 mm), 15, [1] pp. Modern half brown morocco (slightly rubbed), spine gilt, very minor foxing. A fine wide-margined copy. ---- Duveen-K. 701; see Norman 1289. - FIRST EDITION. Lavoisier was a member of an Academie comittee appointed to report on the terrible and insanitary conditions in Paris hospitals, and particularly the Hotel-Dieu, with a view to replacing it with a new building on the Isle des Cygnes. The committee concluded, that four smaller hospitals would be more efficient than a single large one, and in 1787, Louis XVI ordered their construction. This is the rare second report from the king's private press, signed by Lassone, Dabenton, Tillet, Bailly, Lavoisier, Laplace and d'Arcet. The second report of the commission, dealing with the recommendations for sites on which the projected four new hospitals should be built, was promptly published by the Imprimerie Royale before it appeared in the 'Hist. Acad. R. Sci. for 1786 (1788). [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Acts and Laws Passed by the General Court of Massachusetts: Militia (Shays' Rebellion)

      Boston: Adams and Nourse, 1787. First Edition. Disbound. Very Good Condition. Small folio, disbound, pages 546-627 with a rear blank, comprising 32 acts, many relating to the rebellion in Western Massachusett's called Shays' Rebellion. Light foxing, otherwise clean.& & The United States was still operating under the Articles of Confederation and was unable to raise an army to put down the rebellion, so the state of Massachusetts was forced to pass a series of laws to govern the quelling of the rebellion - including the raising of a militia. Because it took place just months before the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia, Shays' rebellion had a direct influence on the course of the debate over armies and militias and, a few years later, the Second Amendment to the Constitution.& & The 32 acts here include "An Act Providing for the Pay and Subsistence of the Militia...employed by Government in supressing the dangerous rebellion", "An Act establishing the Right to, and the Form of the Writ de Homine Replegiando, or Writ of Replevying a Man", "An Act for the more speedy and effectual Suppression of Tumults and Insurrections in the Commonwealth", "An Act in Addition to the several Laws now in force, for regulating and governing the militia of this Commonwealth."

        THE CONSTITUTION, PROPOSED FOR THE GOVERNMENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, BY THE FOEDERAL CONVENTION, HELD AT PHILADELPHIA, IN THE YEAR ONE THOUSAND SEVEN HUNDRED AND EIGHTY-SEVEN. TO WHICH IS ANNEXED, THE RATIFICATION THEREOF BY THE DELEGATES OF PENNSYLVANIA IN THE STATE CONVENTION.

      Philadelphia: Printed by Hall & Sellers, 1787. - 24pp. Gathered signatures, stitched as issued. Titlepage and following leaf with paper loss upper outer margin, not affecting text, expertly replaced with matching paper. Old light foxing. Very good. In a half morocco box. An early and important Philadelphia printing of the Constitution, issued just after the Pennsylvania Convention ratified the document on December 12, 1787. This printing was produced some three months after the Constitution was first approved by the Constitutional Convention on September 17, 1787. Pennsylvania was a key state in the ratification process - it was the first large state to ratify the Constitution and the second overall, following only Delaware, which ratified it on December 7. Pennsylvania's ratification marked an important step in the process to adoption of the Constitution as the supreme law of the land; this printing therefore marks an auspicious moment on the path to adoption. This is one of only a handful of pamphlet printings of the Constitution done in 1787, and also includes, on the final page, the names of the forty-six delegates who voted in favor of the Constitution at the Pennsylvania ratifying convention. This copy bears the early ownership signature of the "Richland Lybrary" on the titlepage. "Very rare in any condition.the importance of this pamphlet is apparent" - Rosenbach (who offered a copy in 1917 for $90). ESTC, NAIP, and OCLC together locate a total of thirteen copies. This is the first copy that we have ever owned, and we cannot find any copy appearing at auction in at least the past forty years. Any 1787 printing of the Constitution is scarce on the market.

First edition, and AN ATTRACTIVE COPY. "Cary's first known engraved plan is dated 1779. Henceforth, the quality of his engraving established new standards and a new style, with his effective, starkly beautiful, plain design being widely adopted. His firm's cartographic output was prolific and diverse, ranging through maps, plans, atlases, astronomical and educational works, road-books (including works based on surveys by Aaron Arrowsmith the elder, who probably trained him), guides, and globes. Particularly noteworthy are the immensely popular New and Correct English Atlas (editions from 1787), which became the standard county atlas of the period, and the Traveller's Companion (from 1790), the printing plates of both of which had to be replaced having become worn in the effort to meet the huge demand, and the particularly fine New English Atlas (from 1801) and New Universal Atlas (from 1808)" (David Smith for DNB).

        A View of the Fort of Lionpoor upon the Banks of the River Goomty

      J. Grives, London 1787 - Aquatint, printed in two or more colours, coloured by hand to resemble watercolour, by Hodges. A fine print from the very rare hand-coloured issue of Hodges' "Select Views in India", the pioneering work on the architectural and picturesque wonders of India. This fine image resulted from Hodges' six year stay in India under the patronage of Warren Hastings and was published in three separate forms: uncoloured, uncoloured proof or hand-coloured to resemble the original drawing, as here. The image was were printed lightly in a single operation using two (sepia and blue) or more colours applied to a single plate, these prints were then coloured by hand (probably by Hodges himself) with great freedom but with careful attention being paid to achieving a depth of colour and shading only possible through the repeated over-painting of contrasting pigments. The print therefore retains much of the idiosyncratic vibrancy of the original watercolour. Born in London the son of a smith, William Hodges was employed as an errand-boy in Shipley's drawing school, where in his spare time he managed to learn drawing. The landscape painter Richard Wilson (1714-1782) noticed him and took him on as his assistant and pupil, and by 1766 Hodges was exhibiting in his own right. In 1772, through the interest of Lord Palmerston (1739-1802) a member of the board of Admiralty, he was appointed as draughtsman to Captain James Cook's second expedition to the South Seas. He returned in 1775 and was employed by the Admiralty in working up his drawings of the expedition and in supervising the engraving of the plates for Cook's published account of the expedition. He exhibited a number of pictures inspired by the voyage at the Royal Academy in London in 1776 and 1777. Life in London must have seemed quite restrained after his South Sea Island experiences, and in 1778 he left for India, where he worked under the patronage of the Governor-General Warren Hastings (1732-1818) and remained in India for about six years, experiencing at first hand one of the most important periods in the establishment of British supremacy in India. On his return to England in 1784 he set about the publication of 'Select Views in India.' Its appearance would have caused a sensation , as nothing of the scenery of India on this scale had been seen before (Humboldt cited the Hodges views as one of the inducements which led him to travel). Hodges thereafter continued to paint and to exhibit at the Royal Academy, but did not manage to achieve the heights that he reached with his Indian views. Cf. Abbey Travel II, 416; cf. Brunet III, 242; cf. Lowndes II, p.1079; cf. Tooley 264. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        A view of Moorea one of the Friendly Islands in the South Seas

      London: Thomas Martyn, 1787. Uncoloured aquatint, 490 x 690 mm.; mounted. Scarce uncoloured version. An unusual uncoloured version of the famous aquatint by James Cleveley, one of the four remarkable views of the Pacific done after the Cook voyages. The Cleveley aquatints were issued in various different states; one version, for example, had the printed lines appearing as faintly as possible, so that when the prints were coloured by hand they had the appearance of original watercolours. This uncoloured version is interesting for the amount of detail that appears in the actual printing of the plate, and has no subsequent hand-finishing. The original sketches on which this and Cleveley's other three views were based were, according to the prospectus issued for the prints, "drawn on the spot" by James Cleveley, the carpenter on board the ship Resolution. When the expedition returned to England in October 1780 his brother John, a professional draughtsman, worked up the sketches into finished watercolours. The final works portray the Pacific Islands and their inhabitants in a picturesque and idealised manner, which perhaps has more to do with conforming to European notions of a Pacific Arcadia than specific representations of the islands as they were. The resultant images, though perhaps not an exact record of the expedition, do convey a wonderful sense of excitement of these early points of contact between European explorers and Pacific islanders. This view of Moorea is incorrectly titled "one of the Friendly Islands", when it is in fact part of the Society Islands, with Morea just to the north-west of Tahiti.

        Autographed Document Signed on Vellum

      Albany, 1787. unbound. An endorsement to an arrest warrant for the confiscation of goods belonging to Samuel Barrow -- 1 page, 11.5 x 10 inches, with endorsement on verso, Albany, New York, August 5, 1787 -- ordered by Revolutionary War patriot and then-Chief Justice of the New York Supreme Court Richard Morris, in very small part: "The people of New York - To The Sheriff of the County of Richmond - Greeting. We command you that of the Goods and Chattels, Land and Tenements of the aforesaid Samuel Barrow, in your Bailiwick, being Debt, in the sum of four-hundred and eighty pounds...for damages...have you whole monies before us at our City of Albany...Richard Morris, Chief Justice..." Bancker has placed his endorsement on the verso: "The within Saml. Barrows hasth Goods or Chattels in my Bailiwick whereof the Debt and damages, or any part thereof can be made." It should be noted that the entire document is in the hand of and signed by: John McKesson (1734 - 1798), an Anti-Federalist New York Attorney and staunch Revolutionary War patriot, who was appointed to the Provincial Convention (1775), all four Provincial Congresses (1775 - 1777), and to the First and Second Councils of Safety. He also served as clerk of the State Assembly and to the Ratifying Convention (1788), of which he is said to have participated in the hostile negotiations which eventually led to New York finally ratifying the U.S. Constitution. This document is in very good condition (with heavy natural folds) and coincidentally was signed by Bancker and McKesson on the very day (August 5, 1787) that the first draft of the United States Constitution and Bill of Rights was completed. American patriot and major in the American Revolution who, as a representative of Richmond County (Staten Island), cast an important vote in the ratification of the United States Constitution, by the state of New York. The final vote was 30 to 27 and the failure to ratify might may have brought down the fledgling nation. Soon after the Revolutionary War, Bancker was appointed Sheriff of the County of Richmond.

        The Preservation of Sir Richard MacGwire, who fell into the Sea (by the descent of a Balloon) of the Coast of Ireland, on the 12th of May, 1785

      Thomas Milton (Dublin) and J. James Barralet (London) 1787 - Mezzotint, with hand-coloring, after J. James Barralet (1747-1815). Practical ballooning, in which humans could be airborne by means of a balloon, and permitted to descend to earth again, dates from the successful attempts of the Montgolfier Brothers in late 1782. Advances followed fast, and by early 1785 Blanchard and Jeffries crossed the English Channel. A few months later, Richard MacGwire attempted to top that feat with a balloon voyage cross the Irish Sea, but encountered disaster instead. As a reward for his determination to survive the perils of falling into the Irish Sea, by keeping afloat until a rescue could be effected, this young pioneering aviator received from the Duke of Rutland, then Lieutenant-General of Ireland, the honor of knighthood and a captain's commission in the army. The three gentlemen standing up in the second boat are Lord Henry Fitzgerald, in center, Mr. Oliver, and Mr. Thornton, to the extreme right. The composition owes rather a lot to the painting by John Singleton Copley, Watson and the Shark (The Detroit Institute of Arts), which was exhibited in London in 1778 and was so popular that it was engraved in mezzotint by Valentine Green three times, with issue dates of 1779 and twice in 1783. Frankau 191 ("Sir Richard MacGwire").

        Considérations sur les richesses et sur le luxe

      Paris, chez la Veuve Valade 1787 - A Amsterdam, et se trouve à Paris, chez la Veuve Valade, 1787. 8vo; VII, 499, (5) pp.; early 19th century dark speckled boards, spine with contrasting gilt lettering-piece, spine with one small mark (bumped), corners only slightly bumped, first and last leaves somewhat browned, else clean and crisp, a very good copy. First edition. According to Palgrave it is a brilliantly written refutation of Terrai and Necker. Together with the Abbé Pluquet he was one of the hardest critics of luxury. For him the population is the main pillar of a nation. Luxury is hampering the development of population for three reasons: 1. because it limits the supply of food products, 2. because it encourages single life, and 3. because it entails the misery of the masses. In other words the production of luxury goods tends to deplete a nation of the capital which better should be invested in productive enterprises.

        View of Huaheine one of the Society Islands in the South Seas

      London: Thomas Martyn, 1787. Coloured aquatint, 357 x 525 mm., title supplied in calligraphy; mounted and framed; some general ageing but very good. Omai's island. An attractive example of the famous aquatint by John Cleveley, one of the four remarkable views of the Pacific done after the Cook voyages. Huaheine, one of the Tahitian Islands, was of special interest to Cook, as it was here that he decided to leave Omai. 'Cook negotiated with the chieftains of the island for a suitable piece of land… a garden was laid out, on which Cook tells us "Shaddocks, Vines, Pineapples, Millons and several other articles" were planted "all of which were in a flourishing state before we left the island"…' (Joppien & Smith). Omai's house can be seen in the foreground of this superb aquatint, under construction. The original sketches on which this and Cleveley's other three views were based were, according to the prospectus issued for the prints, 'drawn on the spot' by James Cleveley, the ship's carpenter on board Resolution. When the expedition returned to England in October 1780 his brother James, a professional draughtsman, worked up the sketches into finished watercolours. The final works portray the Pacific islands and their inhabitants in a picturesque and idealised manner, which may have had more to do with conforming to European notions of a Pacific Arcadia than with providing specific representations of the islands as they were. The Resolution and Discovery are shown riding at anchor, and the crew can be seen setting out in long-boats accompanied by traditional Tahitian craft - the artist depicts a moment of great serenity and beauty.
