MARSDEN, William
1788. I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I have many more photos on my website...just ask. "The most comprehensive book on the largest island of Indonesia!" After spending eight years in Sumatra, William Marsden came back to England in hopes of getting an important job. When he did not, he devoted his time to writing a historical book on the history the island of Sumatra. Shortly after his work was published in 1782, he received accolades from important members of the Royal Society such as Dalrymple, Rennel, Maskelyne, Solander, and Herschel. Marsden then became a member of the Society, thanks to his work. According to Hoefer, Marsden's book shows a proper history, an accurate picture of government, and paints a picture of the manners and laws of the natives to Sumatra. [Attributes: First Edition]

VENEL Jean-André
Sans lieu. In-8, plein cartonnage dominoté bradel moderne, page de titre salie, 28 pages. + 1 feuillet + deux planches hors texte dépliantes, 1788. Leonard F. Peltier, dans son Orthopedics, a history and iconography explique « the first physician to approach the treatment of crippled children in a systematic fashion with attention to their social as well as their medical needs in an institutional setting was Jean-André Venel . Bruno Valentin considered him to be « the father of orthopedics » ». - - - - Jean-André Venel (28 May 1740 - 9 March 1791) was a Swiss doctor and a pioneer in the field of orthopedics. Venel was born in Morges, the son of a surgeon, Jean-François Venel. He studied medicine in Montpellier, Paris and Strasbourg, and practised at Orbe and Yverdon; between 1770 and 1775 he was attached to the court of Count Stanis?aw Potocki. Nicholas Andry, in his work Orthopaedia, or the Art of Preventing and Correcting Deformities in Children (English edition 1741), had been the first to use the term "orthopaedia", but Venel is regarded by many as the "father of orthopaedics" because of his development of the practical applications.

William Shakespeare
London: John Bell. The collection includes all of his major dramatic works, with plates throughout. The first two volumes here are a remarkably comprehensive and broad prolegomena to his works, and offer interesting analysis of Shakespeare from an era where many of his plays were often interpreted differently, both in their production and in their critical reception. They include Mr Pope's Preface, Mr Theobald's Preface, Sir T. Hanmer's Preface, Dr Warburton's Preface, Dr Johnson's Preface, Mr Stevens's Advertisement to the Second Edition, the unattributed essay On The Origin of The English Stage, the text of the Globe's company's License for Acting, a list of the original actors, and extracts from entries of the Stationer's Company, Mr Malone's Chronology, Rowe's Life of Shakespeare, and other fascinating arcana. The subsequent eighteen volumes contain on the plays themselves, along with annotations by Samuel Johnson and George Stevens. These annotations are one of the joys of this particular work, preserving as they do the learned comments of two of 18th century England's foremost scholars in their reading of the plays. From Copac: The general title pages are dated 1788, but the plays have separate pagination and title-pages, with dates 1785, 1786, and 1788. The annotations at the ends of the plays also have separate title-pages all with the date 1787. A landmark in the cultural and critical reception of England's greatest author.

Condition: Very good + to near fine; spines a little faded, very slightly rubbed at edges. Dimensions: 8vo; 9 3/16" x 6" x 1 1/2" each volume. NOTE: 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 Edition … [Click Below for Full Description]

Bowen, Emmanuel, & John Gibson
Vienna: Gestochen von J. Stenger, 1788. One sheet (of 4), approx. 23" x 26½", lightly hand-colored in outline; fine.

CANOVAI, STANISLAO.
Firenze: Nella Stamp. De Pietro Allegrini, 1788. First edition. 4to, contemporary vellum, gilt lettered spine, a.e. stained red. A treatise by Florentine historian and mathematician, Stanislao Canovai (1740-1811), that attempts to restore the reputation of Amerigo Vespucci as the founder of the new world, which was named for him, but he was not generally credited with being the first one there. Canovai makes the case that Vespucci set foot in America one year before Columbus. Canovai's Elogio d'Amerigo Vespucci went through several editions, and the merits of it were debated for decades as new, revised editions appeared. See, for example, a substantial discussion of it in the North American Review, April 1821 (JSTOR). From the library of collector Brent Gration-Maxfield, with his interesting and extensive notes in pencil on the free endpapers, with bibliographical citations and statements (albeit not entirely correct ones) about the rarity of this volume. Skinos book-label on the verso of the front free endpaper. Copies are noted with a frontis portrait of Vespucci, but that is an engraving of a later date, copies of which are sometimes inserted into earlier editions of the book. Slight wear to the edges of the binding; fine copy.

Briggs (Richard)
Printed for G. G. J. and J. Robinson, 1788. FIRST EDITION, with 12 engraved plates, 2H8 apparently a cancel, a little browning here and there, and some mild staining (usually damp-), small amount of worming at the lower inner margin at the front, without loss to text or image, pp. iv, xx, 656, 8vo, modern calf backed boards, fore-edges shaved. The very scarce first edition. Richard Briggs proudly proclaims on the title-page that he was 'many years cook at the Globe Tavern, Fleet-Street, the White Hart Tavern, Holborn, and now at the Temple Coffee-House'. 'Briggs's book was aimed at housekeepers and has been described as 'largely a plagiarisation or, more charitably, a competent revision and enlargement' of John Farley's The London Art of Cookery of 1783 (Mennell, 99). However, Briggs's work reveals considerable improvements over Farley's. Cooking times, methods, and quantities of ingredients are often clarified and Briggs includes a wider range of foods—notably fish and vegetables. Interestingly he broke new ground by including recipes for fish rarely mentioned in eighteenth-century cookery books, such as 'To Boil John-a-Dore', a simple recipe remarkably similar to one favoured by James Quin, the actor renowned for his predilection for this fish (Davidson, 81). Although the book was predominantly about English food there were none the less German, Spanish, West Indian, Italian, Dutch, French, and Jewish influences in the recipes. Some were adapted and others are identical with recipes found in Hannah Glasse's The Art of Cookery (1747) and Elizabeth Raffald's The Experienced … [Click Below for Full Description]

Condorcet). Il s'agit de l’un des textes fondamentaux dans l’histoire politique française et de « l’ouvrage de Droit constitutionnel le plus important qui ait été publié à cette époque et même depuis » (Allengry, Condorcet guide de la Révolution Française). Dans cet ouvrage, Condorcet est l'un des premiers auteurs à réclamer le droit de vote pour les femmes. Relié à la suite, "Sur la nécessité de faire ratifier la Constitution par les citoyens", une plaquette méconnue et pourtant importante, puisque Condorcet y étudie la question de savoir si, et dans quelle conditions, une nation peut conférer à une assemblée le pouvoir de lui donner une constitution ou celui de l'accepter en son nom. ___________________________________________________________________________________ ______________________________ENGLISH_DESCRIPTION______________________________ ___________________________________________________________________________________ Contemporary full green stiff vellum, flat spine, title and volume number in gilt on lettering-pieces.

[Read March 7. and April 4. 1785]", 2 engraved plates, by F. Baine and D. Lizars respectively. Hutton's revolutionary theory of the Earth as a unitary system.... Hutton's theory was first made public at two meetings of the Royal Society of Edinburgh, early in 1785. The society published it in full in 1788 [in the Transactions of the Royal Society of Edinburgh]. Hutton's theory which he invariably referred to as a "system," the title "Theory of the Earth" having been applied to the work by the editors of the Edinburgh Transactions -- postulated a cyclical history of the earth in four stages, consisting of erosion, deposition of the eroded land as strata at the bottom of the ocean, compression of the strata under the heat which lies beneath the earth's crust, and the fracturing and re-emersion of the fused sediments to form new continents. The revolutionary nature of Hutton's system lay in its cyclical view of geologic processes - … [Click Below for Full Description]
