Edition originale. Dans cet ouvrage, Sénac de Meillhan (1736-1803) attaque les doctrines de Necker auquel il gardait rancune pour avoir été disgracié par ce dernier alors que, intendant général des armées, il ambitionnait de devenir ministre. « Les vues de l'intendant Sénac de Meilhan expriment, d'une manière particulièrement caractèristique, l'opinion des détracteurs du luxe de la fin du XVIIIe siècle. Il considérait la population comme un des piliers de l'Etat an affirmant que sont accroissement anime l'activité économique et contribue ainsi à porter remède au chômage et à la misère ». (Spengler, De Budé à Condorcet). Bel exemplaire. INED, 4141; Stourm, 14 ; Kress, B 1336. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Carte géographique de la Sicilie ou l'on voit la distance qu'il ya de cette isle à l'Italie et la position des isles de Lipari Copiée de Matth Sutteri, par J. Houel, qui l'a verifiée dans les années

      Parigi 1787 - Incisione in rame, mm 425x480, impressa su carta vergata con marca d'acqua. Fascinosa carta dell'isola di Sicilia con Malta. L'autore, famoso incisore pittore e architetto francese, fu un celebre viaggiatore del Grand Tour. La mappa, stampata in seppia, proviene dal quarto volume di "Voyage pittoresque des isles de Sicile, de Malta et de Lipari tra il 1782 e il 1787", una delle più importanti opere del XVIII secolo riguardante il Grand Tour. I quattro volumi che costituiscono l'opera contengono oltre 200 tavole realizzate dall'autore nel corso del viaggio. La mappa fu copiata da quella di M. Seutter del 1744, da cui è preso anche il particolare di Malta, che mancava nella carta del 1782 pubblicata nel primo tomo dell'opera. Houel decise di disegnare una nuova carta della Sicilia per soddisfare le esigenze del suo pubblico e gli standard della produzione cartografica del tempo; la mappa, ricchissima di toponimi, presenta il reticolo geografico, evidenzia nell'orografia un imponente Etna, il cartiglio in alto a sinistra porta il titolo e in basso sempre a sinistra, il riquadro con l'isola di Malta con legenda e scala linearia. A destra in basso è riportata una legenda con la scala linearia. Ottimo esemplare marginoso. Rara. Valerio - Spagnolo, Sicilia 1477 - 1861, La collezione Spagnolo-Patermo in quattro secoli di cartografia, n° 265; Dufour-La Gumina, Imago Siciliae, pag. 231.

The fascinating travel narrative of Constantin François Chasseboeuf, Comte de Volney (1757-1820), French aristocrat, philosopher, abolitionist, historian and politician, who set out for Egypt and Syria in 1782 and remained there for almost five years. His Voyage en Égypt et en Syrie was first published in Paris in 1787 and quickly translated into English. "One of the most exact and valuable works of the kind ever published. . . . Volney was a member of the States General and later the Constituent Assembly. He had a varied career during the Revolution, once narrowly escaping the guillotine" - Cox. Volney later became a friend of Thomas Jefferson, whom he visited at Monticello. Jefferson admired Volney's writings and at one time had planned to translate his Ruins of Empires into English, but presidential politics intervened.

        Cary's New and Correct English Atlas: Being a New Set of County Maps from Actual Surveys

      John Cary, London 1787 - Advertisement Leaf; Title page; Dedication Leaf; Contents [47 Double-page Maps] (Directions) pp 17 [1] Cary's 1787 English Atlas in a most desirable contemporary wallet-style binding intended for use by Stage Coach Drivers. The binding is soft sheep over thick card covers with rubbing to the hinges but a very good example of this style of binding. The first blank has the inscription of the sculptor Henry Westmacott recording the book as a gift from his sculptor father, Richard: 'Henry Westmacott A Gift of his Father's in 1801.' Westmacott's initials also appear on the unprinted recto of the Dedication Leaf. After the preliminaries there follow the 47 double page maps, outlined in colour and bound sideways onto stubs. The volume concludes with the seventeen pages of Directions. As befits a volume intended for practical use this is the version that does not have the county summaries or list of subscribers. An engraver himself, Cary is highly regarded for the quality of the workmanship and the precision of his cartography. An excellent copy.

Jackson, Romantic Poetry by Women, Sanders 1; ESTC records two copies (Yale and Huntington), to which OCLC and COPAC add BL. Frontis lightly foxed; fine copy.. 12mo, period-style tan paper spine and marbled boards by Philip Dusel, untrimmed. Frontis. Eight-page list of subscribers. The first book by Charlotte Sanders, who went on to write children's fiction, notably The Little Family, published in 1797, and Edmund, a Tale for Children, in 1802, but little else about her appears to be known. This substantial collection of 70 poems is quite polished. Most are domestic in theme, but several show a passionate awareness of poverty and social injustice. There are also four poems written to or about author and philanthropist Jonas Hanway (1712-1786), apparently a family friend. And there is a poem on at least one other notable subject: "On Reading an Advertisement of a New Invented Method to Walk in the Air": "No more Balloons then, th' air-brain'd traveller's praise, / But new form'd projects, admiration raise, / Childhood hath playthings, hath not manhood too? . . ."

Seine ersten Werke veröffentlichte er in Zusammenarbeit mit dem Magdeburger Verleger Daniel Christian Hechtel, dessen Tochter er 1771 heiratete. Im selben Jahr machte er sich als Buchhändler und Verleger in Hamburg selbständig. 1773 gründete er eine Verlagsbuchhandlung in Itzehoe, die er jedoch 1783 aus wirtschaftlichen und gesundheitlichen Gründen wieder aufgab, um sich nun ausschließlich seiner literarischen Tätigkeit zu widmen. Müller war vor allem mit komisch-satirischen Romanen nach dem Vorbild des englischen Autors Henry Fielding erfolgreich, die den Geschmack der bürgerlichen Leserschaft trafen. In dem satirischen Roman Siegfried von Lindenberg (1779, Neuausg. 1966) verspottete er Empfindsamkeit und Geniekult.

Contemporary calf, spine in 7 compartments with red gilt lettered label and gilt lines. A fine copy of the first edition of this important work introducing North American trees into Germany. Friederich Adam Julius von Wangenheim (1749-1800) was a German botanist specializing in forestry. He came to the United States in 1777 in the Hessian contigent in the British service and attained the rank of captain. During his stay he devoted all his leisure time to botanical studies of American trees. The third part 'zeigt diejenigen, zwischen den 39ten bis 42ten Grad nördlicher Breite wachsenden Nordamericanischen Bäume und Blumenbüsche an, die in Teutschland in freyer Luft von Gartenliebhabern zur wahren Zierde ihrer Gärten angepflanzt werden können, und dieses ihrer Schonheit, Nutzens, oder Wohlgeruchs halber auch verdienen'. This chapter lists 98 species. The present work predates Michaux's first illustrated work on oakes by 14 years. On his return from America Wangenheim became Prussian 'Oberforstmeister'.

      London: printed for W. Dickinson, S. Hooper and Messrs. Robinsons, 1787. Quarto. (12 1/2 x 9 inches). 12 stipple-engraved plates by W. Dickinson after Bunbury, all printed in bistre. Expertly bound to style in half 18th-century russia over 18th-century marbled paper-covered boards, the flat spine divided into six compartments by gilt fillets and roll tools, black morocco lettering-piece in the second compartment, the others with repeat decoration in gilt First edition of this popular work. Henry William Bunbury was one of the most beloved English humorists of his day. By turning his back on controversial political caricature, Bunbury made a name for himself as a subtle and ingenious social satirist. In this vein he mocked many of the fashions and follies of the age depicting scenes of university life and, in the present work, the antics of horsemen. Lowndes calls this work a "lively and entertaining jeu d'esprit of the pencil and pen." Lowndes II, p.860 (attributing the text to Bunbury).

        THE ADVENTURES OF NUMA POMPILIUS, SECOND KING OF ROME

      Printed for C. Dilly, J. Stockdale, and W. Creech, London 1787 - 178 x 114 mm. (7 x 4 1/2"). Two volumes. Translated from the French. First Edition in English. ATTRACTIVE CONTEMPORARY TREE CALF BY A. BROWN OF ABERDEEN (his ticket on front pastedown), covers with gilt-rolled border, smooth spines in gilt-ruled panels with medallion centerpiece, red and green labels. Title pages with contemporary ink inscription of "F. F." Lowndes I, 812. Boards tending to splay just slightly, trivial wear to covers, but a very fine set, nearly spotless internally, and in gleaming bindings. This is an extraordinarily well-preserved example of quite pretty tree calf bindings produced by a little-known Aberdeen workshop, here covering the English translation of Florian's historical novel of ancient Rome, first published in French in 1786. Playwright, novelist, poet, and fabulist Jean Pierre Claris de Florian (1755-94) wrote the present epic novel in imitation of Fénelon's "Les Aventures de Télémaque," and dedicated it to Queen Marie Antoinette, with fateful consequences. Although he had been elected to the French Academy in 1788, he was arrested as a royalist sympathizer in 1794 during the French Revolution. He was released later in the same year, but confinement had wrecked his health, and he died shortly thereafter. Binder-bookseller Alexander Brown left few tracks: the British Library's database of bindings has no of examples of his work, and specimens are not to be found in the standard references (Aberdeen bindings in general are quite scarce). Ramsden records five locations for the firm of Alexander Brown (1766-1848), and notes that he began to ticket his bindings "A. Brown & Co." when his son, William, joined the firm.

        Manuscript on the Constitution, October and December 1787, apparently an unpublished Speech, Address, or Newspaper Article

      1787 [Boston and Woodstock: October and December 1787] small quarto, 21 pages, paper tanned, some spotting and damp-staining, else in good, legible condition. Housed in a recent ½ calf and cloth, recessed, clam-shell box. Anonymous manuscript, written by an apparent veteran of the Revolutionary War, which espouses an Anti-Federalist view against the proposed Federal Constitution, ratification of which was being debated in Massachusetts, where the unknown author resided. This work is a record of one of the voices in “one of the greatest and most probing public debates in American history, one that occurred at the end of the American Revolution and involved far more than the handful of familiar “founding fathers.” It is the story of how “We the People” decided whether or not to ordain and establish the Constitution of the United States.”1 The author in this work argues many of the Anti-Federalist points chiefly that the new Constitution would strengthen the national authority going beyond the federal principle by moving away from state equality in representation. Another theme which runs through the author’s work is representation: when the Anti-Federalists examined the representation in Congress, they saw an emerging aristocracy. They claimed that the democratic class, especially the middle class or the yeomanry, would have little chance of gaining election against the aristocracy, the men of wealth and of political and professional prominence. Since the middle class was substantially represented in the state governments, the Anti-Federalists argued that the powers of Congress had to be restricted to produce a proper balance between the nation and the states. The Anti-Federalist objections, touched upon in this work, to the structure of the proposed government related either to federalism or to republicanism. As examples of the former, the Senate, despite state equality, did not satisfy federalism because the legislatures did not pay the senators and could not recall them, and because the voting was by individuals, not by state delegations. As examples of their republicanism, the Anti-Federalists feared the Senate, with its six-year term, plus reeligibility, and its substantial powers, especially regarding appointments and treaty-making, as a special source of aristocracy. The author makes his case in a strong vernacular style and employs his own idiosyncratic spelling. This work was written in the period after the Constitutional Convention finished its work in September 1787 during which the states began to convene their ratification conventions. Ratification by the conventions in Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, and Virginia was essential for these three states contained most of the nation’s people and much of its wealth. The Federalists had powerful allies in the newspapers, some ninety-eight in number, most of which printed the Constitution in toto shortly after September 17. In Philadelphia, Boston and New York the leading journals soon printed essays favoring the Constitution and denouncing the opposition Anti-Federalists as obstinate “placemen” fearful of losing their jobs or “wrongheaded” on other grounds. By January of 1788, Delaware, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Georgia and Connecticut had ratified the Constitution. Before they could enjoy these triumphs, the Federalists learned that the failure to include a bill of rights, the fears of an overbearing “consolidated” government, and a variety of local circumstances would slow ratification and might jeopardize the whole process in Massachusetts and beyond. Governor John Hancock delivered the Constitution to a joint session of the Massachusetts legislature on October 18, 1787. As soon as the date for the Ratification Convention was set, essays on the Constitution began filling the pages of Massachusetts newspapers. The Massachusetts convention was the first to meet in a state where there was significan

        De la France et des Etats-Unis, ou de l'importance de la Revolution de l'Amerique pour le bonheur de la France, des Rapports de ce royaume et des Etats-Unis, des avantages reciproques qu'ils peuvent retirer de leurs liaisons de commerce, et enfin de la situation actuelle des Etats-Unis

      Londres [Paris?: no publisher]. 1787. First. First edition. Octavo. xxiv, xlviii, 344pp. Text in French. Two or three minor pencil notations and underlining in text. Contemporary three-quarter leather dark brown calf and marbled boards. Spine and corners professionally restored; hinges strengthened with Japanese paper. An ex-library copy, with blind-stamp on title page and some old markings on dedication page; some small scattered library stamps at corners of text professionally removed. Inscribed by Thomas Jefferson to Sir John Sinclair on front free endpaper: "Th. Jefferson to Sr. John Sinclair." Brissot de Warville, a Girondist during the French Revolution, came to an untimely end by the guillotine in 1793. This important economic work by Claviere and Brissot de Warville advocated mutually beneficial commerce between France and the fledgling United States. Brissot sent a copy of the proof sheets to Jefferson a year before the book was published, and Jefferson made a few comments and corrections to the text. In a letter to him in 1786, Jefferson says "I have read with very great satisfaction the sheets of your work on the commerce of France & the United States which you were so good as to put into my hands.... were I to select any particular passages as giving me particular satisfaction, it would be those wherein you prove to the United States that they will be more virtuous, more free, & more happy, employed in agriculture, than as carriers or manufacturers. It is a truth, and a precious one for them, if they could be persuaded of it."A copy of the published work was part of Jefferson's library [Sowerby #3609], and signs of his influence on the text are scattered throughout [Jefferson is specifically referred to in a footnote on p. 321 of this text.] Jefferson apparently had not had a chance to read the finished work, as his duties as Minister to France kept him very busy. He did, however, send a copy of the book to his friend Sinclair and James Madison in 1787. In a letter from Paris dated July 2, 1787, Jefferson writes: "I avail myself of the earliest moment possible after my return to thank you for the sketch of your last year's journey which has come duly to hand. I send you through the medium of Count Sarsfeild a late publication on the connections between France and the United States which is said to be well written. I have not yet read it, and indeed I wonder how any body finds time to read any thing in Europe." [The editors of the Princeton edition of Jefferson's letters have identified this "late publication" as Claviere & Brissot de Warville's De la France et des Etats-Unis. See The Papers of Thomas Jefferson, (Princeton: 1955), volume 11, p.532.].Sir John Sinclair and Jefferson were in constant correspondence over the years, often exchanging publications, seeds, and newly developed farm implements. Sinclair (1754-1835) was a Scottish agriculturalist, and first President of the Board of Agriculture in London. Jefferson himself became a Foreign Honorary Member of the London Board of Agriculture while Sinclair was President. [Sowerby #726 & 767]. In their correspondence on agriculture, Jefferson reiterated the sentiments he had expressed to Brissot: "I have to acknowledge the receipt of your two favors of June 21. & July 15, & of several parcels of the Agricultural reports. These now form a great mass of information on a subject of all in the world the most interesting to man; for none but the husbandman makes any thing for him to eat, & he who can double his food, as your exertions bid fair to do, deserves to rank among his benefactors, next to the creator." [Letter dated March 23, 1798.] According to ESTC T 109594: "The imprint is false; possibly printed in Paris." Howes C464; Kress B1169; Sabin 13516. Provenance on request. .

        Cabinet of Genius. II Vols.

      1787. CABINET OF GENIUS]. The Cabinet of Genius Containing Frontispieces and Characters adapted to the Most Popular Poems, &c. with the Poems &c at large. Two volumes. Various paginations. With 45 and 50 engravings respectively. 4to., 205 x 180 mm, bound in contemporary calf, handsomely rebacked in light tan calf with dark brown morocco labels, raised bands, spine compartments gilt. London, printed for C. Taylor, 1787-[1790]. |~||~||~||~||~| First Edition of this compendium of poetic works, a complete copy bound from all the parts issued by Charles Taylor at his shop in Holborn, London. The work is of considerable interest to students of Women's History, as it is profusely illustrated with plates, descriptions, and personifications of "illustrious" women of the time. These volumes are illustrated with ninety-five fine stipple-engraved plates executed by Taylor and Ogborne mostly after designs by Samuel Shelley (1750-1808) and Robert Smirke (1752-1845). Shelley was a famous painter of miniatures, dividing the patronage of the day between Cosway and Engleheart. Smirke was "an excellent English painter of humorous and sentimental subjects" (Burke), although he did not exhibit at the Royal Academy until 1786. The present volumes contains some of his earliest published efforts. The attractive stipple-engraved plates are all printed in sepia, with remarkably successful results. Charles Taylor and John Ogborne both were students of Bartolozzi, the great English master-engraver; his influence on them is quite discernible here. The many popular authors represented herein include Pope, Gray, Thompson, Dr. Johnson, John Gay, Milton, Goldsmith, Stern, Dryden, Robert Burns and Shakespeare. Rebacked in beige calf, corners refurbished, recent endpapers. Internally a fine, complete copy. Note that over half of the copies listed by ESTC are defective, including both British Library copies, both Bodleian copies, and both Henry E. Huntington copies. ESTC: T090563.
