[Trial Ticket]
No Place: No Publisher Single sided ticket for the trial of Hastings, n.d. but probably 1788, mounted, framed and glazed. Lightly creased, with possible repair to tear to bottom half (not examined out of frame), small piece missing from the top left hand corner, apparently removed as a method of cancellation once the trial had been attended, though this seems unlikely to this cataloguer. Remnants of an old auction description pasted to reverse. The ticket is for the twenty-third day of the trial and so it is likely to have been in the first year of the trial. The trial of Hastings, which took place sporadically between 1788 and 1795, was an attempt to impeach the first Governor-General of India for misconduct, mismanagement and corruption. The proceedings began with a lengthy address by Burke, and Hastings himself noted "for the first half hour, I looked up to the orator in a reverie of wonder, and during that time I felt myself the most culpable man on earth" (Wikipedia). Hastings was eventually acquitted in 1795. First Edition. Framed and Glazed. Good. 16mo. Ticket.

1 lettre autographe (brouillon) In-4 16/07/1788 bon Intéressante lettre de l'architecte du pont de la Mulatière, très probablement Jean-François Lallier, ingénieur de la province de Lyon, qui s'occupa du canal de Givors et des digues de la Tête d'Or, puis du second pont de la Mulatière après qu'il ait été emporté par les crues en janvier 1783 [il sera ouvert par la compagnie de Perrache en 1792, mais gravement endommagé l'année suivante durant le siège de Lyon]. De graves problèmes de santé l'ont obligé de différer l'envoi des « accessoires du Pont de la Mulatière ». A présent libéré, il s'est mis à la tâche. « Je vous supplie en conséquence de trouver bon que je diffère à me livrer aux recherches et au travail que vous exigés de moi relativement aux travaux qui ont été exécutés pour l'ouverture du canal de la rivière d'Azergues. Je crains même que ces recherches ne deviennent infructueuses, car depuis quinze ou dix-huit ans que ces ouvrages sont terminés, il se pourroit que les papiers qui y ont eu rapports ne se trouvassent plus chez moi, surtout depuis que je ne suis plus ingénieur de la Province. Je me rappelle seulement, Monsieur, que ces ouvrages furent exécutés uniquement sur les fonds résultants de deux impositions successives faites sur la Province, et que les fonds des Ponts et Chaussées n'y contribuèrent en rien. Lorsque la première partie de ce canal fut exécuté, on en fut si satisfait que l'on demanda qu'elle fût continuée jusqu'à la Saône près la ville d'Anse [.]. Je me rappelle aussi que l'entrep. n'étoit obligé à aucune indemnité et qu'il n'y avoit aucune so … [Click Below for Full Description]

Georges KEATE
First french edition in-4, illustrated with 16 boards (views, portraits, objects) and a large folding map. This edition was published the same year as the English original.Binding full calf vintage root. Back to nerves adorned. Title piece in red morocco.The Palau Archipelago is located in the east of the Philippines, in northern Indonesia, in Micronesia; Captain George Wilson and his crew in the service of the East India Company were shipwrecked on an island near Palau in 1783. The book tells how they were received by the natives and their king, and how they lived, until that the king had them build a ship to go to Macau, while entrusting his son to the care of Captain Wilson, so that he received a Western education. Georges Keate, using the captain's notebooks, drew up the voyage narration of the Antelope ship that departed from Macao. The introduction is a research in the literature of the existence of these islands. The book relates, of course, the habits and customs of the inhabitants. At the end of Volume II, a vocabulary of the Pelew language. It is interesting to note an episode which shows the king at war against the inhabitants of other islands, and who borrowed 5 men to the captain to accompany him to the war, the peaceful relations between the English and the king surely draw their origin from this curious diplomatic fact.The work was a great success, certainly because the testimony it rendered corresponded to this myth of the good savage that raged in Europe; Paul and Virginie de Bernardin de Saint-Pierre appeared on the same date.

Rome: Ex Typographia Jo: Zempel Prope S. Luciam Tinctae Praesidum Facultate, 1788. Hardcover. Very Good+. 8vo (205 x 130mm). Pagination: 115pp. Signatures: A-F(8), G(10). Title page with printer’s device of Zempel, a muse of literature. Woodcut decorative tail-pieces. Text in Latin in roman and italic types. Near contemporary tan calf, ruled in gilt with scrolling ornament, spine gilt in compartments with one repair, all edges gilt; (light edgewear, some tenderness at gutter; internally clean and crisp). Giovanni Carlo Boschi (1715–1788), born into a noble family from Faenza, held several important offices during his prelatic career. He received an excellent education, first at the Collegio Clementino in Rome from 1725–1732; later, at the Pontifical Academy of Ecclesiastical Nobles in Rome from 1732–1737, and finally, at La Sapienza University in Rome, where he obtained a doctorate in both canon and civil law in 1746. Among his more prominent appointments, Boschi was cardinal of the Roman basilica Santi Giovanni e Paolo and held the role of Major Penitentiary of the Apostolic Penitentiary, which was responsible for the internal forum and indulgences of the Roman Curia. According to the Dizionario Biografico degli Italiani, Cardinal Boschi participated in the papal conclaves of 1774 and 1775, but was vetoed on an election to the papacy by the Jesuit Bourbon courts. He died in September of 1788 and in the remaining months of that year a dissertation of his writings was produced with the Roman publisher Joannis Zempel.

Lavater, John Caspar. Blake, William.
London: J. Johnson, 1788. Small 8vo, vi, i (errata), 224 pp, with the frontispiece designed by Fuseli and engraved by Blake. Very Good in original drab paper-covered boards, slightly worn on paper spine and at one corner : a firm and clean copy with George Goyder's bookplate and a clean copy of the engraving in the first state. Scarce in boards in this condition. First edition, first state of the plate. The frontispiece is after a drawing by Fuseli (see Essick, Blake and His Contemporaries..., 43 for the original drawing) and is a powerful image. The text notes “End of Vol. I” but no further volumes appeared as a fire destroyed Lavater’s manuscript at the printer. The Huntington Library has Blake’s own copy, extensively annotated throughout. Bentley, BB, 480. Essick and Easson 2, XXXII, 1a. Essick, William Blake’s Commercial Book Illustrations, XVIII.

NECKER JACQUES
chez G. Regnault, 1788. Cm. 20, pp. (4) 544. Con bel ritratto dell'A. inciso in rame all'antiporta. Bella legatura coeva in pelle maculata; dorso a 5 nervi con titoli su tass. e filetti dorati. Tagli rossi. Esemplare praticamente perfetto. Jacques Necker (1732-1804), celebre economista ginevrino, fu ministro delle Finanze di Luigi XVI e ricoprì numerosi incarichi politici di primissimo piano, non riuscendo però a coniugare le sue grandi qualità di economista a un dinamico pragmatismo politico. Questo saggio delinea un'importante riflessione sul ruolo delle opinioni religiose nella società settecentesca, viste come baluardo contro gli abusi al diritto di uguaglianza, dilaganti in nome della supremazia del diritto alla proprietà privata. Verosimilmente prima edizione, comunque decisamente più rara di quella, con stesso anno di stampa e medesimo numero di pagine, che riporta al frontespizio Parigi in luogo di Lione.Cfr. Kvk; Cat. Einaudi, 4098..

WORLD MAP/(CLOUET, JEAN BAPTISTE LOUIS)
Paris, Jean Mondhare 1788. Rare world map showing a double hemisphere, richly decorated with allegorical and classical scenes. All late-handcoulored in a very attractive way. The western hempisphere is supported by Hercules who is draped in his traditional lion skin, the eastern hemisphere is supported by Atlas. The two allegorical figures are flanked by polar celestial maps and are separated by an armillary sphere with a Ptolemaic solar system on the left and a Copernician solar system on the right. Richly decorated title cartouche with the French royal arms on top, surrounded by angels. The hemispheres provide a fine depiction of the most up-to-date information derived from contemporary explorations, showing the tracks of numerous routes of exploration. Mounted in a modern blue passe partout and framed in a modern gilt frame. Map: H. 70 x L. 140 cm. Including frame: H. 130 x L. 160 cm. The Clouet / Mondhare world map is one of the most decorative double hemisphere wall maps of the world published in the second half of the eighteenth century. It was designed to be both a spectacular object and a statement of the worldliness of the owners, as it was utilized by the French Aristocracy in decorating libraries and salons and depicting the progress of the exploration of the world and scientific models of the known universe, decorated with imagery from the classical world.
