        View in Macao.

      John Webber, 1788-92 & 1809 (1820), London: - The "View in Macao" is offered here in two versions; a rare colored Lifetime issue & the Boydell issue. The rare lifetime issue was self- published by Webber and is a soft ground etching. This is an extremely rare hand colored copy, which Sir Maurice Holmes states in his "Captain James Cook RN FRS, A Bibliographical Excursion" (1952) that the original drawings were "etched and coloured by himself". Impression mark 450 x 323 mm with large margins, 539 x 390 mm. With notations in pencil, quite possibly by Webber - "Pl.13" penciled in the top right corner, along with "1st Augt. 1788" in the lower right. Soft ground etching with hand color. Watermark J. Whatman. Joppien 3.372A.a. [with] The Boydell issue, published in John Webber's "Views in the South Seas", which has been called "the most striking publication resulting from Cook's expeditions". (Parsons Collection 136). Vide Cook's Last Voyage Vol. 3 Chap. 11. London. Pubd. April 1, 1809 by Boydell & Compy. No. 90 Cheapside. Impression mark 450 x 325 mm, on paper 500 x 363 mm. Colored aquatint. Light foxing in the margins and some offsetting from the accompanying text page, which is drawn from the published account of the voyage. Both the print and letterpress are watermarked J. Whatman 1820. Joppien & Smith 3.372A.b. Webber was engaged as the official artist for Cook's third voyage, during which Cook discovered Hawaii & Alaska. Webber was more fully trained than any of the artists of the previous voyages, and he and Cook worked closely together to illuminate "the unavoidable imperfections of written accounts, by enabling us to preserve, and to bring home, such drawings of the most memorable scenes of our transactions, as could only be expected by a professed and skilled artist." (J. Cook & J. King, Voyage to the Pacific Ocean, London 1784, Vol I, p.5). Because he was there with Cook in the field, his paintings "constituted a new visual source for the study of history." (Smith, Bernard, Art as Information. Sydney, 1978). Cook's ships were the first Western contact with the natives of Nootka Sound and the furs they traded with them were sold at a vast profit in Macao in the following year, 1779. Soon American and English ships were making annual trips to the Northwest Coast in search of "Sea Beaver" pelts. After the publication of the official history, Webber issued a series of twelve splendid soft ground etchings produced between 1788 and 1792 and this print is one of those early issues. It is extraordinarily rare. The culmination of his long concentration on his sixteen subjects was finally issued as a book after his death by Mr. Boydell under the title "Views in the South Seas." The proof reader did a poor job, with two mistakes on the title page, mistaking Webber's last name for James and Captain Cook's name as "Cooke". In this issue, which is also scarce, the plates are dated April 1, 1809, although the watermarks are nearly always later. Only 16 views were published in the book - the two views of Macao indicate its significance in the East. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Sir Joseph Banks and the Emperor of Morocco, Etc

      London: G. Kearsley et al . Hardcover. Good. 1788-1793. 27; 30 (2); 104; 56; 34 (2); 50; 18 (2); iv, 39; 70; 10; 63; 58; 72; vi, 47; 22; 77; 41 p. 27 cm. Humorous frontispiece.

Ref. lib. stickers inside front board, lacks rear endpaper, light foxing and stains throughout. Peter Pindar was the pseudonym for satirist and poet John Wolcot (1738-1819). He graduated as M.D. at Aberdeen, and accompanied Sir William Trelawny as physician to the governor of Jamaica. His peculiar medicinal methods, which consisted in encouraging his fever patients to drink cold water, and his opinion that a physician could do little more than watch nature and 'give her a shove on the back if he sees her inclined to do right' involved him in disputes with his professional brethren. The poet's humour was generally coarse, and not infrequently profane. He soon discovered a paying enterprise in ridiculing the private life of the king. After the gov't attempted to secure silence by the bestowal of a pension, and the queen's solicitor got into action, he confined himself to smaller game, such as Sir Joseph Banks, Sylvanus Urban, and James Bruce the African traveller. In 1793 he sold the copyright of his existing works to J. Walker, the publisher. He was buried in St.Paul's Church, Covent Garden, where by his own wish his coffin was placed touching that of Samuel Butler. He had many imitators, who wrote under the same and similar names. --"Sir Joseph Banks and the Emperor of Morocco. A Tale. + A Poetical Epistle to a Falling Minister; also an Imitation of the Twelfth Ode of Horace. + Subjects For Painters. + Expostulatory Odes to a Great Duke and a Little Lord. +A Benevolent Epistle to Sylvanus Urban, alias Master John Nichols, Printer, Common-Councilman of Farringdon Ward, and Censor General of Literature; Not Forgetting Master William Hayley: in which is added, An Elegy to Apollo; also Sir Joseph Banks and the Boiled Fleas, an ode. + A Rowland for an Oliver; or a Poetical Answer to the Benevolent Epistle of Mr. Peter indar.

Bellissimo esemplare immacolato dell' edizione originale di notevole rarità. Gian Rinaldo Carli, nato a Capodistria, poligrafo ed economista, fu cultore anche di lettere ed è un esempio di enciclopedista italiano. "Notevoli i cinque volumi Delle antichità italiche ( Milano, 1788-1791), vasta opera di erudizione dove raccolse ed ampliò i suoi precedenti lavori in questo settore, e che ebbe un successo editoriale. Vi difende l' antica civiltà italica, autocrona e anterirore alla greca, sostiene l' origine nazionale e non fiorentina della lingua italiana, e ripete pure la ricordata tesi sull' origine del potere temporale dei papi. " Opera delle più dotte e più profonde che siano in questa materia, ricca di molte tavole ai luoghi voluti dal testo, o inserte nelle stesse pagine intagliate in rame ed in legno". " Raccolta immensa sulle antichità italiane, a cui inteso per tutta la vita.

Le ricerche dell' autore si stendono attraverso il Medio Evo sino al XIII secolo. Siffatta opera è affatto diversa da quella di Sigonio e di Muratori; ebbe una voga prodigiosa ed assegnò all' autore tra gli antiquari un seggio pari a quello che teneva fra gli scrittori di economia politica".

      Erlangen: Johann Jacob Palm, 1788. - Two volumes. [24],644,[1]; [6],xxxii,551,[1]pp., plus folding map. Modern half calf and marbled boards. Two volumes from different sets, bound uniformly. First volume foxed and dampstained. Second volume with institutional ex-lib. on titlepage. Titlepage of each volume printed on thick paper. Nonetheless, a good set. The first edition of Schöpf's account of his travels along the eastern coast of America immediately following the Revolutionary War. The author was a German-trained physician who served as a field surgeon attached to the Ansbach regimen of Hessian mercenaries employed by the British during the American Revolution. After the war ended, Schöpf stayed an additional two years in America, travelling from New York City south to St. Augustine, Florida. He also spent time in the Bahamas. Howes refers to the work as the "first notable 18th century account of the United States by a German traveller." Schöpf was a careful student of natural history, and was particularly interested in the geology and mineralogy of the region. He was the author of the first significant work on American geology and the earliest MATERIA MEDICA based on plants found in eastern North America. "Among travellers in America it would be difficult to find his equal in combined breadth of interests, accuracy of observation and judgement, wit, and serene good temper.he is one of the best exemplars of the culture of the Enlightenment" - DAB. This book has proved to be a notably difficult work to obtain over the years, and this is the first set we have ever handled, although we have had both Schöpf's geological and MATERIA MEDICA works.

        Sacred to Cook's immortal name.

      circa, London 1788 - Engraved view with poem, 195 x 105 mm., laid down on card. Cook's immortal name. Rare Cook engraving, with commemorative poem, after a drawing by Thomas Stothard (1755-1834). Stothard was elected to the Royal Academy in 1794 and often collaborated with William Blake, although the present engraving is by T. Cook. Coxhead, who wrote the standard monograph on Stothard, gives a tentative date of 1788 and described it as a 'frontispiece of allegorical character, showing a bust of Captain Cook, round which are three naked cupids, and a figure, holding a scroll, pointing to a temple of fame' (A.C. Coxhead, Thomas Stothard, R.A., p. 168). Beddie knew three copies of the print, all in the Dixson collection of the State Library of New South Wales, and she gives the image the nominal title 'Philosophy inviting Youth to the heights of science: allegorical representation with bust of Cook.' A copy of the image is also known in the Nan Kivell collection at the National Library of Australia.

        Observations on the diseases of the army in Jamaica; and on the best means of preserving the health of Europeans, in that climate.

      London, G. Nicol, 1788 - 8vo (210 x 125 mm), pp. xv, [i], 328; half-title present; contemporary tree calf, spine gilt; an excellent copy, from the library of the Earls of Macclesfield. First edition. 'The dreadful mortality, that has always accompanied military operations in the West Indies, in consequence of sickness and disease, renders every attempt to point out the causes of such calamities, and the means of obviating them, an object worthy of the public attention. In treating of this subject, I have confined myself to an account of those things only, that fell under my own observation. This I have not done, as undervaluing the work of others; but from a conviction that in physic, as in all other branches of natural knowledge, he who shall content himself with narrating what he has seen, will perform a work more likely to be useful towards the improvement of knowledge, than if he endeavoured to add to the value of his own labours, by collecting the opinions of others, which there is some danger of his mistaking, or misrepresenting' (preface). Hunter's Observations proved a valuable contribution to the study of tropipal medicine and reached a third edition in 1808, as well as a German translation in 1792. John Hunter (1754-1809, not to be confused with his namesake and fellow-Scot, the famous surgeon) was appointed physician to the army in 1777 and was superintendent of military hospitals in Jamaica from 1781 to 1783. In 1787 he contributed a paper to the Medical Transactions of the Royal College of Physicians on the cause of the 'Dry-belly-ach' of the tropics. This extended Sir George Baker's earlier discovery that lead in cider was the cause of the 'Devonshire colic' to include rum that had been distilled through a leaden worm, which, Hunter observed, 'had been the cause of "Dry-belly-ach" in the troops in Spanish Town and Kingston, Jamaica, during his time of service there. Hunter's principal work, Observations on the diseases of the army in Jamaica, appeared in 1788. This provided an amplified account of the "Dry-belly-ach" and it included a copy of Benjamin Franklin's letter of 1786 on the subject of lead poisoning. Hunter's Observations also dealt with yellow fever and other diseases of the troops, as well as briefly with some of the illnesses which afflicted the indigenous population' (Oxford DNB).

Pièce de titre en maroquin beige et de tomaison en maroquin vert (avec roulettes). 2 coins émoussés. Une petite déchirure à la grande carte en marge, dû à son ouverture difficile. Bon exemplaire. L'archipel des îles Palaos est situé à l'est des Philippines, au nord de l'Indonésie, en Micronésie Le capitaine Georges Wilson et son équipage, au service de la Compagnie des Indes, firent naufrage sur une île proche des Palaos en 1783. L'ouvrage conte comment ils furent reçus par les indigènes et leur roi, et comment ils vécurent, jusqu'à ce que le roi leur fit construire un navire pour se rendre à Macao, tout en confiant son fils au soin du capitaine Wilson, afin que celui-ci reçut un éducation occidentale. Georges Keate, à l'aide des carnets du capitaine, a établi la narration de voyage du navire l'Antelope qui partit de Macao. L'introduction est une recherche dans la littérature de l'existence de ces îles. Le livre relate, bien évidemment, les moeurs et coutumes des habitants. A la fin du tome II, un vocabulaire de la langue Pelew. On notera avec intérêt un épisode qui montre le roi en guerre contre les habitants d'autres îles, et qui emprunta 5 hommes au capitaine pour l'accompagner à la guerre, les relations pacifiques entre les anglais et le roi tirent sûrement leur origine de ce curieux fait diplomatique. L'ouvrage connut un grand succès, certainement parce que le témoignage qu'il rendait correspondait à ce mythe du bon sauvage qui sévissait en Europe Paul et Virginie de Bernardin de Saint-Pierre est paru à la même date.

      Paris, chez Le Jay et chez Maradan, 1788. 1788 - 2 vol. in-8° (198 x 130 mm.) de I. [2] ff., 280 pp., [1] f. ; II. [2] ff., 274 pp., [2] ff. (Errata, privilège). Portrait frontispice, 16 planches gravées. 1 Plein basane d'époque marbrée, dos lisse orné, pièces de titre et de tomaison de maroquin vert, filet d'encadrement des plats estampé à froid, tranches marbrées. (Coiffes et coins discrètement restaurés). Première édition française, parue la même année que l'originale anglaise. En 1783, le capitaine de vaisseau Henry Wilson (décédé en 1810) qui était au service de la compagnie des Indes fait naufrage près de la petite île, appelée Ouroulong, près des Pelew. Ce récit est la relation du séjour prolongé de ce groupe d’Anglais sur les îles Pelew de Mindanao. Ce contact avec les insulaires donne lieu à des descriptions de leur comportement, de leurs mœurs, de leur mode de vie qui sont du plus haut intérêt. Aba-Thoulé, chef du pays, reçut Wilson avec beaucoup d'humanité, lui donna un petit bâtiment pour rentrer dans sa patrie et lui confia même son fils, Li-Bon pour l'éduquer et introduire dans les moeurs et les arts de l'Europe. Le jeune homme mourut de la petite vérole à la fin de 1784. Un vocabulaire de la langue Pelew occupe les pages 251 à 267. Boucher de la Richarderie est assez sceptique quant au portrait idyllique de ces iles brossé alors par l’auteur : "L'existence de ces îles, où Wilson et son équipage ont trouvé un peuple dont les nations les plus civilisées de l'Europe pourraient envier les vertus morales, a paru douteuse à quelques personnes et surtout en France, malgré tous les droits que le rédacteur paraît avoir à la confiance à ses lecteurs. Mais ce doute pourrait bien ne tenir qu'à l'espèce de fatalité qui, depuis la publication en Angleterre du Voyage original, jusqu'à sa traduction en français, semble avoir toujours dérobé l'approche et la connaissance de ces îles aux navigateurs." L'ouvrage est illustré de dix-sept planches : frontispice représentant le capitaine Wilson d'après Russel et gravé par Mme Massard, des cartes, portraits, vues. Bel exemplaire. 2 vols. 8vo. 1 frontipiece portrait, 16 engraved plates. First French edition, published the same year than the London OE, of this classical relation of the shipwreck of Henri Wilson and his crew on Ouroulong, little island nearby the Pelew Islands. They stayed a long time there, long enough to bring back very precious ethnographical informations, and a description of an "idyllic" society, a people "from whom the most civilized European nations should envy their virtue." (Boucher de la Richarderie). Fine copy. Cox III, 302-303 - Chadenat 3258: "Relation très recherchée" - Boucher de la Richarderie VI, 552.

        Promenade ou Itinéraire des Jardins d'Ermenonville

      Paris: Paris: Mérigot père, 1788 - Beautiful copy of this classic illustrated account of the famous "English garden" - among the earliest of its kind on the Continent - designed by the Marquis Louis-René de Girardin in honor of Jean-Jacques Rousseau, whose vision of nature inspired Girardin and who would spend the last 6 weeks of his life there until his death and burial in the park at Ermenonville in 1778. Carefully conceived, designed and financed by Girardin with the aid of landscape architecte Jean-Marie Morel, the painter Huber Robert, the Abbé Delille, and Scottish gardeners, the park was inspired along the model of the "jardin anglais", where nature is not subordinated to the gardener but is rather carefully allowed the freedom to develop its own natural charm and beauty. It was the first, or at least the most important, such garden on the Continent. Rousseau, who spent the last 6 weeks of his life there, is buried on the Isle of Poplars in the park's lake; his tomb there was designed by the painter Hubert Rober. The park itself is filled with numerous details evocative of the great philosophe and his works. This account of the park - rare in such condition - was written by Louis-René's son, and is far more frequently seen in the second edition of 1811. This First edition, which appeared ten years after Rousseau's death, is rare; and, with its 25 masterful aquatint plates by Merigot, it is quite beautiful, illustrating the stunning vistas and rustic charms of the park which will forever be associated with the name of Jean-Jacques Rousseau First edition. 8vo. Illustrated with 25 aquatint plates engraved by Mérigot fils after his drawings, and 2 engraved plates of music. 68 pp. Contemporary tree calf with gilt-lettered spine.

Boards a bit rubbed, corners somewhat worn. One folding plate expertly repaired, a few plates with old dampstains in upper portion, else internally clean and fresh. A near fine set. An important and beautifully produced periodical on art instruction and appreciation. Edited by Francis Fitzgerald, THE ARTIST'S REPOSITORY AND DRAWING MAGAZINE. was published by Charles Taylor, and many of the illustrations are by the famed engraver, Francesco Bartolozzi. The text takes the form of lectures and covers a wide variety of subjects of interest to the students and consumers of art, including human and animal physiognomy, human figures and character, architecture, landscape, perspective, and the uses of color. Much of the work, therefore, amounts to a prolonged course in art criticism, and this periodical played a significant role in educating the British populace to what constitutes fine art. It thereby served to instruct those who wanted to become artists, and to cultivate the eye of art consumers in an era when art was accessible to a wider populace than just the royal court. Also included are biographies and assessments of several artists, and analyses of various paintings, sculptures, and buildings that would have been accessible to readers. There are also portraits of significant painters, sculptors, architects, and engravers including Nicholas Poussin, Michael Rysbrack, Wenceslaus Hollar, Peter Paul Rubens, Van Dyck, Inigo Jones, Mrs. Grace, and more. Many of the plates are the work of the great Italian engraver, Francesco Bartolozzi (1727-1815). He was born and studied art in Italy, before coming to England in 1764 and being made "engraver to the King." He produced thousands of plates in England, refining and perfecting the "red chalk style," a form of stipple engraving that had been recently invented by the French. Many of the plates in THE ARTIST'S REPOSITORY. are in the "red chalk" style, especially those showing the human form, a specialty of Bartolozzi's. A handsome set of this important art journal.

        Beiträge zu den neuesten astronomischen Entdeckungen

      Edited by Johann Elert Bode. Eight folding engraved plates. xiv, 288, [1] pp. 8vo, cont. calf-backed yellow boards (head of spine very slightly chipped), spine gilt, red morocco lettering piece on spine. Berlin: A.G. Lange, 1788. First edition of the first book of the great astronomer Schröter (1745-1816); it is in this work that he first outlined his plans for preparing a topography of the moon. Schröter established in Lilienthal one of the finest observatories in Europe, equipping it with the best instruments, all of which were paid for by George III. "For thirty years the observatory at Lilienthal was a center of astronomical research and was visited by foreign astronomers...Schröter was the first to observe the surface of the moon and the planets systematically over a long period. He made hundreds of drawings of lunar mountains and other features, and discovered and named the lunar rills."-D.S.B., XII, p. 226. This work consists of several treatises, the most important of which are Schröter's observations and conclusions on the rotation and atmosphere of Jupiter (pp. 1-137), his description of Herschel's 7-foot telescope (pp. 154-209), and his plan for a topography of the moon (pp. 221-47).

        "Servius Tullius".

      . Kupferstich in Punktiermanier, 1788, von D. Berger (1744-1824), auf festem Velin. 38,3:42,2 cm. Guter Abdruck, auf die Plattenkante geschnitten, gering fleckig. Literatur: Huber 20 ; Nagler I, S. 427; Le Blanc 26; Boerner 1979, 73. Illustration zu: Titus Livius: A urbe condita.. Angelika Kauffmann war eine der berühmtesten Malerinnen ihrer Zeit. Bereits als 11jährige galt sie als Wunderkind. Als Tochter des Porträt- und Freskenmalers J.J. Kauffmann (1702-1782), der ihr erster Lehrer war, wurde Kauffmanns zeichnerisches und musikalisches Talent schon im Kindesalter erkannt und gefördert. Die beiden ersten Italienaufenthalte in den Jahren 1754-1757 und 1758-1766 brachten entscheidende künstlerische Impulse sowie die Verbindung zu zahlreichen potenziellen Auftraggebern. 1766 ließ sie sich in England nieder, wo sie zahlreiche Porträtaufträge von Hof und Adel erhielt. Nach der Heirat mit dem Maler A. Zucchi (1726-1795) siedelte sie 1782 nach Rom über, wo sie ebenfalls bald zu einer der gefeiertsten Künstlerinnen ihrer Zeit avancierte. Auch für die deutschen Romreisenden war ihr Atelier eine wichtiger Treffpunkt, insbesondere für den Weimarer Kreis um Goethe, Herder, die sie beide porträtierte, und Herzogin Anna Amalia von Sachsen-Weimar. Neben ihrer Porträttätigkeit betrieb Angelika Kauffmann ebenso erfolgreich die Historienmalerei. So führte sie Aufträge u.a. für Kaiser Joseph II. und für das russische Herrscherhaus aus. Bereits 1762 wurde sie Ehrenmitglied der Accademia Bologna und 1765 ordentliches Mitglied der Accademia di San Luca zu Rom. Zudem beteiligte sie sich 1768 an der Gründung der Royal Academy; gemeinsam mit Mary Moser (1744-1819), einer der berühmtesten Malerinnen Englands, gehörte sie zu deren einzigen weiblichen Mitgliedern.

        Dissertation sur cette question : est-il des moyens de rendre les Juifs plus heureux et plus utiles en France ? Ouvrage couronne par la Societe Royale des Sciences et des Arts de Metz.

      Paris, Knapen fils, Madame la Veuve Delaguette et fils, 1788.. In-8, broche, couverture papier bleu d'origine, (4), 105 p., (3) p. d'approbation, (4) p. de catalogue editeur. Rare edition originale et unique de ce memoire compose en reponse au concours organise par la Societe royale des Sciences et des Arts de Metz. La societe messine accorda un prix a trois des dix dissertations qui furent presentees: celle de l'abbe Gregoire ('Essai sur la regeneration physique, morale et politique des Juifs'), celle de Zalkind Hourwitz ('Apologie des Juifs') et cet essai de l'avocat protestant nanceien Claude-Antoine Thiery. Compose apres consultation avec Berr Isaac Beer, le dirigeant de la communaute juive alsacienne, Thiery y fait entendre un son de voix differente. "Preferant voir les Juifs rester Juifs plutot que de devenir ni Juifs ni chretiens, il n'etait pas hostile au maintien provisoire de l'autonomie et souhaitait employer envers les Juifs 'la confiance qui invite, plutot que l'autorite qui commande'. Sans doute, cela etait du au fait que le laic Thiery ne partageait pas la vision paulinienne d'une conversion finale des Juifs, qui guidait l'action de Gregoire" (cf. P. Girard, 'Le concours de Metz' in : 'Les Juifs de France de 1789 a 1860', P., 1976, p. 36-39). L'auteur se defend, dans une note imprimee au verso du titre, d'avoir imite le livre de Mirabeau sur la Reforme des Juifs : son premier memoire envoye sur ce sujet a l'academie de Metz etait en effet anterieur a la parution du livre de Mirabeau. L'exemplaire est bien complet, a la fin, des 4 pages de catalogue "pour les livres nouveaux qui se trouvent a Paris chez Knapen fils et la veuve Delaguette". (Ayoun,' Les Juifs de France', n°217. Szajkowski, 'Franco-Judaica', 1646). Quelques rousseurs et brunissures. Bon exemplaire, entierement non rogne, tel que paru..

In 1775, 76 men in Newport were asked to sign a declaration of loyalty to the American colonies that included the phrase, ?upon the true faith of a Christian.? Hays publicly objected to the phrase and refused to sign, instead offering a letter affirming his belief that the Revolution was a just cause. When, after much wrangling, the Christian portion of the oath was omitted, Hays signed. In 1776, Hays and his family moved to Boston. He opened a shipping office and was am
