WESLEY, John ~(Charles Wesley, Samuel Wesley)
New Chapel, London, 1788. ~Full leather: original tan sheepskin boards fairly recently rebacked in near-matching tan calf, double blind ruling to spine, unobtrusive repairs to leather at board corners. Replacement blue and white headbands. Hinges sound. Page edges darkened. Some marking and wear to front endpapers. Owner's signature in old hand to inside front board (partly rubbed): 'Mr Raymond'. Pencil owner's signature and annotation to free front endpaper. Annotation to verso of free front endpaper in pen over pencil: 'M Raymond, the gift of Mrs Westley (sic), Widow of the Revd Charles Wesley, May 1799. She died Dec 1822 aged 96'. This book was thus almost certainly once the property of Sarah Wesley (1726-1822), the devout and musical daughter of a wealthy Welsh magistrate, who married Charles Wesley in 1749. The marriage was a notably happy one, with Sarah Westey's support providing a much-needed balance to her husband's 'fluctuating temperament' (ODNB). Pen inscription to reverse of title page, giving the text of Samuel Westley's last hymn ('In age and feebleness extreme'; 1788), with what is still the accepted account of its composition: 'Composed on a sick Bed about half an Hour before death at the Age of mor (sic) than eighty years' (Samuel Westley is supposed to have dictated the hymn to his wife), with additional date and inscription 'Sept: 10th, 1800. Adieu! My friend & sister - often shall I remember the few choice and pleasant Hours we have enjoyed together conversing on the best of subjects, trusting that one day we shall meet in the paradise of God to part no … [Click Below for Full Description]

The journal of the Asiatic Society of Bengal was founded by Sir William Jones, High Court Judge and pioneering orientalist, in 1784. It holds the distinction of being the first learned journal ever published to be devoted specifically to Asian studies. Just as the Asiatic Society of Bengal was the model for all such learned societies established in South Asia and beyond– Bombay, Dacca, Colombo, Singapore - and indeed for the Royal Asiatic Society in London itself, so Asiatick researches became the template for all future journals of these societies and similar bodies. In that sense, it may be said to have contributed significantly to the creation of the concept of modern Asian studies. Its wide-ranging contents reflect the aims of the Society to investigate "the history, civil and natural, the antiquities, arts … [Click Below for Full Description]

SMITH, Adam.
London & Paris: Chez Pierre J. Duplain, 1788. 2 volumes, octavo (196 x 121 mm). Contemporary quarter calf, blue paper boards, brown calf label to spines, compartments ruled in gilt, sprinkled edges. A few neat pencil annotations to front endpapers. Wear to boards and extremities, hinges slightly cracked but firm, some minor foxing and dampstains to contents, a very good set. Third Blavet edition, the first to be published in book form within French borders, based on the second French translation by Blavet published in 1781. Jean-Louis Blavet's identity remained unknown until the publication of this edition, after which he publicly acknowledged his role as translator in a letter to the Journal de Paris on 5 November 1788. Although the Preface was reprinted from the 1781 Yverdon edition it contains some significant changes which are noted by Carpenter. In The Wealth of Nations, considered "the first and greatest classic of modern economic thought", Smith "begins with the thought that labour is the source from which a nation derives what is necessary to it. The improvement of the division of labour is the measure of productivity and in it lies the human propensity to barter and exchange The Wealth of Nations ends with a history of economic development, a definitive onslaught on the mercantile system, and some prophetic speculations on the limits of economic control" (PMM).

Light foxing and offsetting to frontispiece, some toning and scattered foxing, but a clean copy overall. First edition. Frontispiece portrait. xvi, 527, [1] pp. 1 vols. 4to. FIRST BIOGRAPHY OF COOK. The first edition of this highly influential first English biography of Cook by the Anglican clergyman Kippis, one of the leading biographers of his day. In addition to describing the three great voyages in depth, Kippis also deals with Cook's earlier experiences, including his duties aboard the Mercury during the siege of Quebec, and his Newfoundland and Labrador surveys. Most of Samwell's narrative of Cook's death is included as well. While Kippis did not appear to be entirely insensitive to the long-term effects of European contact with Pacific peoples, he championed Cook's humanitarian, cultural and intellectual mission in the circumnavigation of the globe. In a study of European exploration of the Pacific, Lynne Withey concluded that this volume by Kippis became a prominent justification for the involvement of Europeans in the Pacific islands for years after Cook's death (Withey 406-407). The second appendix includes "The Moral, an Ode," by the British poet, novelist, and religious dissenter Helen Maria Williams, an old family friend of Kippis.

Illustrated with a wood-engraved frontispiece and 31 woodcuts within the text. Original patterned pink boards. 12mo. Spine restored; else a very good copy. The true first edition which has a longer text and four more woodcuts, was published circa 1781 and is known by a single copy in the Cotsen Children's Library. This above edition differs slightly from other known editions of approximately the same date; for whilst the frontispiece conforms to later printings, having fewer children in the reading circle and with the boy reading his text facing to the right, the woodcut on page 74 still shows Lady Worthy weeping, as in the first edition; whereas in later printings the illustration has been altered to show her reading from a book.

Première édition française, traduite de l'anglais par Louis Langlès. L'auteur prit part à l'expédition britannique placée sous le commandement du chef d'escadre George Jonstone qui avait pour but la prise de la colonie néerlandaise du Cap de Bonne-Espérance.

RUSSELL, John.
Edinburgh: Printed for Charles Elliot, and C. Elliot and J. Kay, 1788. Edinburgh: Printed for Charles Elliot, and C. Elliot and J. Kay,, 1788. Octavo (206 x 128 mm). Contemporary tree calf, red label, spine richly gilt to compartments, foliate roll-tooled border to covers, marbled endpapers. Head of spine chipped, minor wear to extremities, a few black ink splashes to fore-edge, contemporary annotations to p. 179. A very good copy. First edition of Russell's guide to conveyancing. Presentation copy, inscribed "from the author" to front free endpaper, believed to have been presented to Sir William Forbes Bart (1739-1806), with his bookplate to pastedown. Forbes, the banker and philanthropist, is now best remembered as the close friend of James Boswell, with Boswell leaving him many of his papers. A contemporary manuscript addition of two and half pages is bound in at the rear of the volume, relating to a case between John Gordon of Kenmore and the Earl of Hopetoun, heard in 1789. The contents of this addition were included in the appendix to the second edition of the present work, printed in 1791. There is the pleasing possibility that the manuscript addition is from the author, but without signature or known examples of the handwriting of Russell, it cannot be proved. It does not appear to be Forbes's handwriting, recorded as more florid than the current hand.

En la Imprenta de Don Antonio Espinosa, 1788. Abbad y Lasierra, a Benedictine monk, was born in Spain, lived in Puerto Rico from 1771 to 1778, and is credited as being the first historian to extensively document Puerto Rico's history, nationality, and culture. The Library of Congress catalogue record for the 1866 reprint reiterates this, saying it "is considered the first modern historical work on Puerto Rico," and then summarizes the book's contents: "It begins with the Spanish discovery and conquest of the island and ends in the late eighteenth century. Chapters twenty through forty are devoted to the study of the island's climate, economy, population, geography and natural history."

He delivered this antislavery sermon on December 30, 1774, in Fairfax County, Virginia, calling on slave-owners to renounce slavery because 'it is an accursed thing, for which the wrath of God will be poured out upon this nation,' and ominously predicting 'that some revolution is at the door'" (American Antislavery Writings, Library of America). An electrifying orator, he came of age just as Americans began their Revolutionary struggle for freedom, when "the language of liberty, war, and frontier migration opened debate on the meaning of freedom, authority, and democracy Winchester's writings against slavery gained him fame among northern abolitionists during the 1840s.

Walenta, J(oseph).
1788. Small oblong folio (318 x 192 mm). 2 parts in 1 volume. 60 pp. With engraved title, 12 views and 4 plans, all engraved and in original hand colour. (2), 68 pp. With 13 views and 6 plans, one of which folded, all engraved and in original hand colour. Contemporary marbled boards. A rare and appealing, ambitiously illustrated volume about the Austro-Turkish and Russo-Turkish Wars taking place concurrently between 1787 and 1792, when the Holy Roman Emperor Joseph II and Russian empress Catherine the Great fought as allies against the Ottoman Empire. The text gives an account of the military operations; the 35 coloured engravings by Anton Balzer show plans and views of towns, fortresses, field camps and battles near Belgrade, Gradiska, Bucarest, Khotyn, Dreznik castle, Dubica, Foksan, Calafat, Novi Sad, Orsova, Ochakiv, Zemun and other places, as well as on the Black Sea. - The trigger for the escalation of the conflict was the Russian annexation of the Crimea in 1783: the peninsula was part of the Ottoman Empire, and when Russia was pressured again to surrender it along with its possessions near the Black Sea, Catherine declared war. After years of fighting which involved heavy losses, Joseph's younger brother and successor Leopold II made peace with the Ottoman Empire in 1791 by the Treaty of Sistova. Austria gave up all conquered territories, keeping only Orsowa on the northern shore of the Danube. In the following year, Russia and the Ottoman Empire signed the Treaty of Jassy, recognizing the Russian annexation of the Crimea and other formerly Ottoman territories along … [Click Below for Full Description]

Le Trosne, Guillaume François.
1788. 8vo. 2 vols. (4), XVI, 605, (1) pp. (4), 556 pp. Contemporary full calf, spines gilt with red and green labels. Marbled endpapers. Second, enlarged edition, published posthumously: a treatise on the projected creation of a provincial administration in France, urged by the problem of tax collection. It discusses the vices of the present system of taxation, which alone swallowed up more than half of its yield, and argues for the taxation of the net profit. Le Trosne (1728-80, sometimes spelled "Letrone") initially occupied himself with the study of natural law but after his acquaintance with Quesnay became a follower of the Physiocrats. The present book was seized shortly after its first publication in 1779. This second edition is enlarged with two pieces (vol. 2, pp. 438-546): "Dissertation sur la feodalite" and "Maniere de simplifier le plan propose". - Some wear to extremities; lower part of front joint of first volume starting, but still strong. Kress B.1438. Goldsmiths' 13644. Einaudi 3357. INED 2867. Peignot II, p. 164.

MÜLLER, JOHANN HELFRICH.
Frankfurt am Main, Varrentrapp & Wenner, 1788. 8vo. In contemporary modest paper covered board with paper titel-label to spine. Wear to extremities and circular press-mark to back board. Internally fine. (4), 222, (4) pp. ¶ The rare first edition of Müller's set of tables created by his famous universal calculating machine (described in his seminal 1786-publication), predating Charles Babbage's differential engine by 40 years. Thereby Müller became the first in the history of mathematics to construct mathematical tables by a computing machine, the present publication being the very first appearance of these. In the beginning of 1780ies Müller was asked by the local superintendent's office to check and recalculate some tables relating to the volumes of trees. To shorten this task he had come up with the idea of a machine for the purpose. Soon he realized however that with a few small changes, he could get the machine to perform subtraction, division and multiplication as well. Müller's calculating machine is very similar to the machine of Hahn and was based on the Stepped Drum of Leibniz, but considerably larger. It was in the form of a round box with a handle placed centrally and the number wheels concentrically arranged around the handle. It could calculate with 14 figures and its number and gear wheels could be altered to enable it to operate with non-decimal number systems."When Müller heard about Hahn's machine and its difficulties, he built his own version. This was a modest four-function calculating machine based on a design first created by G. W. Leibniz over a hundr … [Click Below for Full Description]

Grosier, Jean-Baptiste Gabriel Alexandre:
London: G. G. J. and J. Robinson, 1788. First English Edition. Band 1: 1 Karte, VII, XVI, 582 Seiten. Band 2: VIII, 524 Seiten mit 15 Kupferstichen auf Tafeln (eine davon ausfaltbar). Neuere, private Leinenbände. Äußerlich sind die Bände in einem sehr guten Zustand, da sie in neue, moderne Einbände fachmännisch neu eingebunden wurden. Dadurch ist die Bindung auch sehr stabil. Die Buchblöcke sind auch in einem sauberen, gut lesbaren Zustand. Nur der 2. Band hat auf den ersten und letzten 25 Seiten, im oberen Fünftel der Seiten einen leichten Feuchtigkeitsfleck, was leider auch 6 der Tafeln betrifft. Dem ersten Band ist wie im Titel beschrieben eine Karte vorgebunden. Diese hat leider einen ca. 3 cm langen Einriss, der aber nicht in die Kartenabbildung hinein reicht und der auch nicht beim Ausfalten stört. Im zweiten Band hat die letzte unbedruckte Seite einen kleinen Eckabriss. Insgesamt handelt es sich jedoch um ein sehr schönes und gut erhaltenes Exemplar dieser seltenen und bedeutenden Ausgabe. Dieses Buch stammt aus einem Nichtraucherhaushalt. Dieses bedeutende Werk beschreibt wie kein Zweites das Land und seine Menschen im späten 18. Jahrhundert. Modern cloth re-binding with one map and 15 copper-plates. Clean book in a good condition from a non smoking environment. The 2nd volume has some light waterdamage on the upper part of the first and last 25 pages, which includes 6 of the plates. The map and the last page of the second volume have a smaller rip each (the image of the map is not compromised). Overall this is a clean and nice copy of this rare book.
