        Relación Histórica de la vida y apostólicas tareas del Venerable Padre Fray Junípero Serra, y de las misiones que fundó en la California septentrional, y nuevos establecimientos del Monterey

      Imprenta de Don Felipe de Zuniga y Ontiveros, calle del Espiritu Santo, Mexico 1787 - Contemporary vellum, manuscript title on spine (lightly rubbed, ties lacking). Housed in a half morocco and cloth folding box, spine gilt. A primary source for information on the history of early California. An outstanding book on early California. Palou was a disciple of Father Junipero Serra (1713-1784) for many years, and his work is still the principal source for the life of the venerable founder of the California missions. "The letters from Father Serra to Father Palou [provide] interesting details on the various Indian tribes and their manners and customs, together with descriptions of the country.This work has been called the most noted of all books relating to California" (Hill). "Both a splendid discourse on the California missions, their foundation and management, and an intimate and sympathetic biography of the little father-present. Better, by long odds, than the bulk of lives of holy men, written by holy men" ( Libros Californianos ). The map shows the locations of nine missions (of an ultimate total of twenty-one) and also the presidios at San Diego, Santa Barbara, Monterey, and San Francisco. "[The map] is of interest here because it seems to be the first on which a boundary line was drawn between Lower and Upper California" (Wheat). The plate is a portrait of Serra. First edition, second issue, with "Mar Pacifico" printed on the map (see Wagner). This is also the issue of the text with "car" instead of "pro" at the end of the index and with the phrase "a expensas de various bienhechores" preceding the imprint on the titlepage.

Being on general Rochambeau's staff for the duration of the war, Chastellux acted as the principal liaison officer between the French commander in chief and George Washington. However the Chevalier de Chastellux was also widely recognized, at the time of his campaigns in America, as a highly talented man of letters and a member of the French Academy. After arriving in America in July 1780, Chastellux participated to the American Revolutionary War as Major General in the French expeditionary force led by general Rochambeau. During the following year, he was third in command of the French forces engaged at the decisive Siege of Yorktown in 1781 where the British were ultimately defeated. Major General de Chastellux was fluent in English and with his strong ideological support of the American cause, he served the alliance well. During the latter part of the campaign he was the principal liaison officer between George Washington and French general Rochambeau. Thereafter, Chastellux remained a personal friend of George Washington for life. Furthermore, the College of William and Mary and the University of Pennsylvania also awarded Chastellux with honorary degrees. After his return to France, Chastellux also remained in contact with Thomas Jefferson, now the American representative in Paris, whom he had previously visited on his Virginia estate at Monticello.

Fremenville was the son of a naval architect. He chose a naval career after hearing a lecture on Captain Cook's voyages. At the age of 15, Freminville joined the navy and traveled to Haiti under General LeClerc. While there he discovered the great ray, native to the bay of Port-au-Prince, which came to bear his name. By the time he retired in the 1830's, Freminville had spent most of his life at sea, traveling from Iceland and Russia to Central and South America to West Africa and the Antilles, and drawing specimens of exotic species. He enjoyed much fame in his own day as an antiquary and writer of travel accounts, but he died having produced only one book on natural history subjects, Considerations Generales sur les Moeurs et les Habitudes des Serpens (1842). The drawings that Freminville left behind were intended for a half-dozen other related works on butterflies, fish, mollusks, snakes, and other reptiles, but these books remained unrealized.

This introductory text is followed by detailed notes on the observations made of the positions of the various locations used as a base for the construction of the maps, and by notes on the available anchorages around the island. The text finishes with "Détails du mouvement" of marine chronometers number "28" and letter "A" that were used during the survey.

        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]

      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.
