        THE FEDERALIST: A COLLECTION OF ESSAYS WRITTEN IN FAVOR OF THE NEW CONSTITUTION, AS AGREED UPON BY THE FEDERAL CONVENTION, SEPTEMBER 17, 1787

      New York: Printed and sold by John and Andrew M'Lean, 1788. - Two volumes bound in one. vi,227; vi,384pp. 12mo. Contemporary tree calf, rebacked in matching style, gilt morocco spine label, raised bands. Calf a bit worn around the edges. Light foxing and tanning. Very good. In a chemise and brown half morocco and cloth slipcase, spine gilt. The rare first edition of the most important work of American political thought ever written and, according to Thomas Jefferson, "the best commentary on the principles of government." The first edition of THE FEDERALIST comprises the first collected printing of the eighty-five seminal essays written in defense of the newly-drafted Constitution. The essays were first issued individually by Alexander Hamilton, James Madison, and John Jay in New York newspapers under the pseudonym Publius to garner support for the ratification of the Constitution. The first thirty-six numbers of THE FEDERALIST were here published in book form in March 1788, with the remaining forty- nine, together with the text of the Constitution, in May of that year. Upon its publication, George Washington noted to Alexander Hamilton that the work "will merit the Notice of Posterity; because in it are candidly and ably discussed the principles of freedom and the topics of government, which will always be interesting to mankind" (George Washington, letter to Hamilton, August 28, 1788). The genesis of this "classic exposition of the principles of republican government" (Bernstein) is to be found in the "great national discussion" which took place about the ratification of the Constitution, and the necessity of answering the salvos in print from the Anti- Federalists and other opponents of a strong federal government. The original plan was that James Madison and John Jay were to help Hamilton write a series of essays explaining the merits of their system, while also rebutting the arguments of its detractors. "Hamilton wrote the first piece in October 1787 on a sloop returning from Albany.He finished many pieces while the printer waited in a hall for the completed copy" - Brookhiser. In the end, well over half of the eighty- five essays were written by Hamilton alone. Despite the intense time pressures under which the series was written "what began as a propaganda tract, aimed only at winning the election for delegates to New York's state ratifying convention, evolved into the classic commentary upon the American Federal system" - McDonald. This copy bears the contemporary ownership signature (dated 1803) of John H. Lothrop on the titlepage, as well as the ownership signature of William K. Lothrop, dated 1831. In a few instances a contemporary hand (likely John Lothrop's) has identified the author of a particular essay in the text. The rear free endpaper contains a manuscript note in the same hand further assigning authorship of the essays to Hamilton, Madison, or Jay. This is evidently the Rev. John Lothrop of Boston and his son William; through his daughter Anna Rev. John was the grandfather of the renowned historian and diplomat John Lothrop Motley, author of THE RISE OF THE DUTCH REPUBLIC. THE FEDERALIST is without question the most important commentary on the Constitution, the most significant American contribution to political theory and among the most important of all American books.

Copper engraved portrait frontispiece of author in volume I. INCLUDING 7 FOLDING MAPS BY THOMAS KITCHIN SENIOR. Raynal's seminal work on the relations between the European colonial powers and their far-off conquests and domains. Originally published anonymously in 1770 in a shorter version, the book expresses strong sentiments against despotism, slavery, the established religious order, the Inquisition, and the colonial system in general. It was suppressed by the French monarchy. This work went through 55 editions during the first 30 years of publication and was translated into 5 languages. The book caused an outcry in some quarters because of its treament of religion and its advocacy of the popular right to revolt, amongst other things. Raynal's condemnation of slavery skilfully combined a detailed critique of Anglo-American territorial expansionism and British imperialism and became a key work in the debate over the abolition of slavery that it did much to spur. Some loss to spine ends, rubbed, corners show wear. Weight is approx. 13 lbs, additional shipping and handling will apply. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Three quarter maroon morocco over marbled boards ruled in gilt, four raised bands, compartments paneled in gilt, gilt titles, all edges marbled, marbled endpapers. Brunet V: 449. One of only 250 copies printed. "..elle est assez recherche, " Brunet. Didbin wrote "The popularity of Brunck's edition was very great; and was exceeded by no work to which that celebrated name was attached. But the dearness of the quarto edition prevented many from purchasing it. Brunck, therefore, brought out an octavo edition, in three vols. 1786-8: containing the Scholia and indexes, fully as complete as the quarto. In the year 1789 [this edition date 1788] he published another octavo edition, in three vols., very handsomely printed, of which only 250 copies were struck off, at his own expense. In this latter edition, the Scholia of Triclinius, and other recent scholia, are omitted, and some fresh notes are added, " (Rare & Valuable Editions of Greek and Latin Classics, 4th ed., Vol. 2, p.415). Richard Francis Frederick Brunck (1729-1803), a celebrated Greek scholar and critic, had such admiration of the authors he edited that he conceived their writings to have been originally immaculate, and therefore attributed to the copyists whatever errors he discovered. Scarce. OCLC shows only five complete sets: BL, BN France, Nat. Lib. Denmark, Brown, Univ. Nebraska; also one in the Nat. Lib. of Greece.

        Abrege historique des principaux traits de la vie de Confucius, celebre philosophe Chinois, d?apres des dessins originaux de la Chine [bound with] Faits memorables dese Empereurs de la Chine, tires des annales Chinoises

      Helman?s Faits memorables and the Abrege historique bound together, in a large-paper copy. 1788. Paris. Chez l?auteur Rue Honore. In folio (405 mm x 270 mm). 1 ff. [title] + 24 ff. plates + 24 ff. text; 1 ff. [title] + 24 ff. plates + 24 ff. text. Contemporary quarter calf over boards, spine flat, heavily tooled in gilt in neoclassical style, lettered in gilt, edges bumped, a little worn. Fine copy in large paper, pale dampstaining to a few pages and scattered foxing, else fine.First editions. Both are handsomely illustrated works, entirely engraved; each with 24 engraved plates and 24 text leaves. The first work?s plates illustrate the life and deeds of Confucius, taken from a set of Chinese miniatures sent by the Jesuit missionary in Peking Amiot to Bertin, Louis XIV?s minister. The second work shows the lives and deeds of Chinese Emperors, and was commissioned by Attiret, again, after the original Chinese drawings. Thus, both are products of original Chinese artwork, and represent the increasing French interest in the culture of China. Helman (1743 - 1806) was a renown French engraved and printer. The works testify to European growing interest in China, its culture, art and rulers. The Faits Memorables and Abrege historique are entirely separate works, although are closely related; this copy stands out and is particularly beautiful, wide margined, printed on thick paper and bound from origin. Provenance: Luis Maria Bosch del Marco, his stamp on title, a famous Uruguayan physician and surgeon. L?Amateur?s ticket on front paste down. Cohen-de-Ricci, 262 & 447.

Alexander Jardine (d. 1799), army officer and author, was the illegitimate son of Sir Alexander Jardine, fourth baronet (1712–1790), army officer. ODNB ‘ ... in 1771 he was sent from Gibraltar on a mission to the emperor of Morocco. His active military career ended in 1776, when he became a British agent in Spain, gathering intelligence for four years in sometimes dangerous conditions. He was transferred to the invalid artillery, where he eventually rose to lieutenant-colonel in 1794. Jardine published his observations from Morocco, Spain, France, Portugal, and Jersey in [the above work] although Robert Southey dismissed this work as conveying ‘much thought in a most uninteresting manner’ (Letters of Robert Southey, 8). Its larger theme is government and society, but it is notable for its defence of sexual equality and advocacy of greater similarity in education and dress between the sexes ...’ Additional postage may be necessary.

        Sir Joseph Banks and the Emperor of Morocco, Etc.

      G. Kearsley et al, London - 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. All new editions except Sir Joseph Banks (3rd ed.) and Advice to the Future Laureat (no ed. listed). 1/2 leather binding scuffed, original spine reapplied early on, bottom edge chipped. 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.

        Description des Beautés de Genes et de ses environs. Ornée de differentes Vues, de tailles douce, & de la Carte Topographique de la Ville.

      Chez Yves Gravier, Genes, 1788. In 12esimo, pp. 268 ( avec le Table de toutes les matières mentionées dans ce Recueil), mm. tavole rip. f. t., in b/n, per lo più stampate su carta celestina. Le tavole presenti nel volume sono: ?Vue de Genes?, ?Plan de la Ville de Genes? (unica carta con 29 didascalie), ?Vue de l'Eglise de S. Laurent, et Palais Negroni?, ?Il Catino, Vase d'Emeraude?, ?Mostro di nave antica ritrovato nel Porto di Genova, e riposto nell'Armeria? (unica non rip.), ?Vue du Pont de Carignan?, ?Vue de la Place de Banchi?, ?Vue du Pont Royal?, ?Vue de l'Albergo des Pauvres?, ?Vue du College des Jésuites dans la Rue Balbi?, ?Vue du Palais Durazzo dans la Rue Balbi?, ?Vue du Palais de Mr. Marcello dans la Rue Balbi?, ?Vue de la Place dit l'Acqua Verde?, ?Vue du Palais du Duc d'Oria dans la Rue neuve?, ? Vue du Palais Carega dans la Rue Neuve?, ?Vue du Palais du Prince d'Oria?. I titoli delle tavole non corrispondono, se non in pochi casi, alla dicitura riportata nell'elenco e, stando all'elenco delle tavole, queste dovrebbero essere in tutto 19. Il nostro esemplare ne contempla in tutto 16: manca le ?Plan Topographique de Gènes? (ne è rimasta visibile in antiporta una parte della didascalia), mentre le ultime due voci dell'elenco ?Le Dogé? e ?Le Page? non sono tavole ma paragrafi di testo. Quindi al nostro esemplare manca soltanto un'unica tavola, la prima, che viene definita nell'elenco ?Plan Topographique de Gènes devant le frontespice?. Leg. in p. pelle scura marocchina. Illustre e rara guida a trovarsi completa, forse attribuibile a Carlo Giuseppe Ratti, edita in prima edizione nel 1768 e poi successivamente di molto ampliata specie sotto l'aspetto iconografico che fu curato dall'incisore Giovanni Lorenzo Guidotti e dal cartografo Giacomo Agostino Brusco (cfr. Fossati Bellani, p. 2644; Schlosser Magnino p. 576; Manno p. 23830). Tracce d'uso alla legatura e piccoli difetti alle tavole ripiegate.

        Recherches Historiques et Politiques sur les tats-Unis De L'Amrique Septentrionale...

      A Colle, Et se trouve a Paris, Chez Froull... 1788. Four octavo volumes. The Florentine Filippo Mazzei knew the United States more intimately, and was more involved in American life and politics, than any other Italian of the eighteenth century. He had come to know Franklin while representing the Grand Duke in London; he obtained land in Virginia next to young Thomas Jefferson's Monticello and imported laborers from Lucca to raise olives and vines. His Recherches, written after his return to Paris, where he was a champion of the new nation's cause, was the fullest account of the new Republic available to Europeans at the time. The first volume is a constitutional history of the thirteen colonies; the second and third rebut two books critical of America; the fourth is a collection of essays on a variety of subjects including a refutation of charges of anarchy in America, an explanation of paper money, emigration, and on Washington, Lafayette and the Order of the Cincinnati. Altogether the most extensive examination of the United States during the confederation period, written by a sympathetic foreigner. Bound in contemporary red paper boards, leather spine labels.

        Pope Diaqkos leading the Dervenochoites into combat."

      Philhellenic: Munich H. Kohler c1835. Tinted lithograph, as issued, of Athanasios Diakos, from Peter von Hess's Album of Greek Heroism, or the Deliverance of Greece / Griechenlands Befreiung ... in XXXIX Bildern.[ First edition.] within decorative borders incorporating captions in Greek, German, French & English. The borders are decorated with guns, swords and helmets with the Greek flag to the left; on the right a crucifix and other emblems of the Christian church; at the top Turkish weapons, laid down, with a fez ,and below, sails and naval instruments. Athanasios Diakos 1788 –1821 born Athanasios Nikolaos Massavetas. Battle of Alamana on April 22, 1821.Omer Vrioni, the commander of the Ottoman army, advanced with 8,000 men from Thessaly to crush the revolt that had broken out in Peloponnesos. Athanasios Diakos Panourgias Panourgias and Yiannis Dyovouniotis with their bands of armatoloi (a total of perhaps 1,500 men) took up defensive positions at the river Alamana , near Thermopylae. Vrioni's attack forced Panourgias and Dyovouniotis to retreat, leaving Diakos alone. Diakos's men fought for several hours before they were overwhelmed. Eventually, Diakos himself was captured and taken to Vrioni after he was shot in the foot and had his sword broken. When Vrioni offered to make Diakos an officer in his army, Diakos immediately refused and replied: "I was born a Greek and I will die a Greek". Vrioni then ordered that Diakos be impaled on a spit . The Ottomans btried to make Diakos carry the long spit, but he threw it down with contempt. As he was led off to die, onlookers heard him sing: "Look at the time Charon chose to take me, now that branches are flowering, now that the earth sends forth grass". Image bright and clean; a few light spots to blank borders. Peter( Heinrich Lambert} von Hess 1792-1871, was a German painter, known for historic paintings, especially of the Napoleonic Wars and the Greek War of Independence. In 1833, at Ludwig's request, he accompanied Otto of Greece to the newly formed Kingdom of Greece, where at Athens he gathered materials for pictures of the war of liberation. He stayed nine months in Greece, interviewing heroes and eyewitnesses of the 1821 revolution. His first- hand knowledge of the heroes gives power to his work. He drew 39 historical persons The sketches which he then made were placed, forty in number, in the Pinakothek, after being copied in wax on a large scale by Nilsen, in the northern arcades of the Hofgarten at Munich, [sadly now destroyed]. It should be noted that Hess was not present during the Revolution; the paintings are representations of reported events. many are of Greek victories, or of heroic deaths of the Greek leaders. Not in Blackmer ,Droulia or Contominas. Philhellenic Athanasios Diakos.

In 12 de 242pp., reliure en plein veau moucheté de l'époque, dos lisse orné de double filet doré, pièce de titre de maroquin vert bouteille encadrée d'un filet doré, surlignée et soulignée d'un filet doré, titre doré, mors très légèrement fendillés sans gravité, reliure solide, une petite tache noire dans l'angle inférieur externe du premier plat, coins très légèrement frottés, bruniture sur les marges des premiers feuillets, nom de la destinatrice des lettres manuscrits à l'encre noire de l'époque sur la page de titre, texte manuscrit à l'encre noire de l'époque sur les 5 derniers feuillets, deux lignes manuscrites à l'encre noire de l'époque dans la marge supérieure de la dernière page sans toucher le texte, frontispice orné d'un portrait de l'auteur, intérieur frais, bon et bel exemplaire. L'auteur naquit en 1693 en Circassie et décéda en 1733 à Paris. Elle est surtout et avant tout connue pour sa correspondance. Fille d'un chef circassien dont le palais fut attaqué et pillé par les turcs, Mademoiselle Aissé fut achetée à un marchand d’esclaves, à l’âge de quatre ans et demi, par le comte de Ferriol, beau-frère de Madame de Tencin et ambassadeur de France à Constantinople, qui l’amena à Paris et lui fit donner une brillante éducation. Par la suite elle fut introduite dans le monde, devint célèbre par ses aventures romanesques et ses vives passions, elle résista aux avances du Régent Philippe d’Orléans (1674-1723). Ses recueils de lettres, de par ses relations avec divers personnages féminins et masculins donnent le plus vif intérêt à ce recueil de lettres, publiées avec les notes de Voltaire, qui furent plus tard ajoutées aux ‘’Lettres de mesdames de Villars, de La Fayette et de Tencin’’, publiées en 1805. Outre les précieux renseignements que contiennent ces lettres sur les contemporains de l’auteur, ses Lettres sont d’une grâce touchante et d’un style passionné. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        ROMANCES

      Paris: De l'Imprimerie de Monseiur, 1788. Hardcover. 140 x 89 mm (5 1/2 x 3 1/2"). 3 p.l., 3-73 pp., [3] leaves (lacking 18 leaves of music sometimes found at the end). Excellent contemporary crimson polished morocco, covers gilt with double rule border and roundel cornerpieces, flat spine in gilt compartments featuring decorative metope bands, stippled diagonal line at corners, and small diamond centerpiece, two dark green morocco labels, turn-ins gilt with festoon roll, all edges gilt. Woodcut decorated title page, and 10 FINE PLATES AFTER BOREL, engraved by Dambrun, Delignon, Guttenberg, Hubert, de Longueil, and Petit. Front pastedown with armorial bookplate of Sir David Lionel Salomons. Cohen-de Ricci 142; Lewine, p. 55; Graesse I, 348. A few plates with light marginal foxing, one or two leaves creased, but INTERNALLY AND EXTERNALLY IN VERY FINE CONDITION, the binding especially bright, the text unusually fresh, and with strong impressions of the attractive plates. These "Romances" comprise eight sentimental rhymed ballads on such themes as unhappy love, happy love, and the innocence of childhood. The majority are original creations of the author, but "The Hermit" is translated from the English of Goldsmith, while a Scottish origin is claimed for the first poem, which evokes the lament of a young mother abandoned by her lover. The author, Arnaud Berquin (1749-91), was best known for his children's books, including the popular "L'ami des Enfants," and a translation of the often printed English favorite, "Sandford and Merton." Apart from the lovely binding, the chief pleasure of the present book lies in the illustrations, which depict, in a skilled and frothy Rococo style, the charming and fragile world of the French nobility just before the revolutionary deluge. Our edition marks the first appearance of these endearing plates; previous editions of "Romances" had used illustrations by Marillier. The artist, Antoine Borel (1743-1810), also illustrated historical scenes and was known for his erotica. The imprint used here indicates that our press was under the patronage of "Monsieur," the brother of Louis XVI, who later ruled as Louis XVIII. Books in the library of Sir David Lionel Salomons (1851-1925) were chosen with careful discrimination, with the goal always to obtain copies in very fine condition. The collection was notable particularly for 18th and 19th century illustrated books. Before portions of the library found their way into the marketplace, the books passed into the hands of Salomons' daughter, Vera, the noted bibliographer of French illustrated books, and afterwards to the L. A. Mayer Memorial Institute for Islamic Art in Jerusalem, which had received an endowment from her.
