(États-Généraux) [ANTRAIGUES (E.-L.-H. de Launay, Comte d')].
S.l., 1788, in-8 de 279 pp. ; cartonnage de l'époque, pièces de titre manuscrites sur le dos, ex. non rogné. -Envoi autographe signé de l'auteur sur le f. de titre. -Bel exemplaire à toutes marges. Edition originale.Conlon 88 : 2397 ; Martin et Walter 428.Le but essentiel de ce mémoire "est de combattre la désignation des députés aux États généraux par les états de la province de Languedoc." (Godechot, La contre révolution p. 12).Précieux exemplaire, offert par d'Antraigues à Louis Gaspard de Salles, Marquis de Gudans, doyen de la noblesse de Toulouse, surnommé le "Roi des Pyrénées" en raison de sa grande fortune comme maître de forges de l'Ariège. Il fut le chef de file des gentilshommes qui protestèrent contre les États du Languedoc et leur prétention de nommer les futurs députés de la noblesse de la province aux États-Généraux. Le Comte d'Antraigues, qui avait été rejeté des États du Languedoc, joua un rôle de premier plan dans la lutte contre ces États ; il réussit à fédérer la majorité de la noblesse du Vivarais, du Velay et du Gévaudan, pour faire désigner les députés aux États-Généraux par les bailliages ou sénéchaussées et non par les États de la province.Cet exemplaire témoigne des liens de d'Antraigues avec le Marquis de Salle et de son influence sur la noblesse non fieffée du Languedoc.

Berdugo de Avila Haro y Velasco, Martin, & Agustin Berdugo de Avila Haro y Velasco.
Seville, Zacatecas, Mexico City, 1788. . Brothers Don Diego, Don Juan, and Don Manuel Berdugo, citizens of Seville and all legitimate children of Agustin Berdugo and Doña Isabel de Torre y Espinal, petitioned on 2 December 1697 for themselves and on behalf of their brothers Don Martin and Don Agustin Berdugo, living in the Indies, to have their status as hidalgos confirmed as represented in this volume (fol. 71r–84v). That confirmation was granted in the town of Arevalo on 4 January 1698 after the usual provision of documentation and the taking of testimony from witnesses.    => The brothers living the the New World were in Zacatecas where Martin was the Tesorero Juez of the Royal Treasury and Agustin a captain in the Army. Beginning on 13 January 1700 they began the process of presenting, for authorities in the New World, copies of all of the documents generated in Spain and also offering the testimony of people living in Mexico who could bear witness that they were the Martin and Agustin of the Spanish documents, personally speaking to their nobility, purity of blood, and legitimacy of birth (fol. 85v–140v). => The American resident members of the family are certified as to their nobility on 9 May 1710.    Other documents in the volume (especially those before fol. 85) relate to the histories and genealogies of the Berdugo, Avila, Haro, Torre, and Velasco families in Spain, with folios 129 to the end relating to the children and grandchildren of the Mexican Berdugos.    => It is discovered in this volume that Don Martin had emigrated to Mexico without the required … [Click Below for Full Description]

Savary, Claude Etienne
London, 1788. [4],407,[8]pp. plus folding map and one folding plate. Antique-style three quarter calf and marbled boards. Contemporary ownership inscription on titlepage. Very minor foxing and soiling. Very good. First English edition, after the first French edition of the same year. "In September 1779, after an extended sojourn in Egypt, Savary left Alexandria for Asia Minor and the islands of the Archipelago. He spent about six months on Crete and also visited several islands of the Dodecanese. His letters on Greece are very interesting and center on actual conditions of the places he visited, the character of the modern inhabitants, rather than the antiquarian approach favoured in Egypt" - Blackmer.

Trumbull, Benjamin
New Haven: J. Meigs, 1788. 53, [1 errata] pp. Stitched, with the half title. Fore-corners rounded, scattered foxing, Very Good. DAB calls this pamphlet "worthy of special mention" among Trumbull's many writings. His closely reasoned biblical analysis contends that divorces are "opposed to the authority of Jesus Christ." He thus urges reformation of Connecticut's divorce laws, which he analyzes in an 'Appendix' demonstrating "their deficiency...Also a comparative view of Connecticut...with New England, with itself, the Jewish and Christian Church, in their purest ages; with other States and Kingdoms, and with Rome pagan for several centuries." FIRST EDITION. Evans 21506. 132 Eberstadt 706. II Harv. Law Cat. 773. Sabin 97177. Trumbull 1517.

Carey, Matthew]
Printed by Mathew Carey, Philadelphia. Volume III, Numbers I-VI [January 1788 - June 1788]. Complete as issued. Scattered light to moderate spotting. Good+, in modern half calf and marbled boards. This Volume prints illuminating accounts of the debates and discussions in States, Towns, and Societies which resulted in the Constitution's ratification. The first Conventions concerning ratification occurred in December 1787; thus these reports, in Numbers beginning January 1788, are among the earliest so printed. The Virginian Edmund Randolph, who would become the Nation's first Attorney General, explains at length in the January issue his reasons for now favoring ratification, although he had originally objected to doing so at the Philadelphia Convention. Essays supporting ratification and rebutting opponents' objections are printed, along with dissenting Letters, Resolves, and Essays. Activities in State Conventions are reported in detail from Connecticut, Massachusetts, North Carolina, New York, Pennsylvania, Georgia, South Carolina, New Jersey, Maryland, Virginia, New Hampshire. Volume III contains other interesting and significant material: orations on American independence; petitions of Quakers; Pennsylvania's funding system; legal cases, several involving Negroes; the climate and resources of South Carolina; material on the Shays' Rebellion and other political matters; Jeremy Belknap on the aurora borealis; David Rittenhouse on comets; James Bowdoin on the phenomena of light; the White Mountains; chimneys; George Washington's laudatory letter to Mathew Carey at the end o … [Click Below for Full Description]

e variis Peregrinationibus ab illustribus viris susceptis deprompta, ac in meliorem redacta. Cassoviae (Ko ice), Joannes Michael Landerer, 1788, in-4, basane marbrée, dos à nerfs orné à froid, pièce de titre beige, tranches rouges [Rel. de l'époque], épidermée, coins émoussés, tampon effacé sur le titre rest. 185 et (3) pp. Sommervogel, VII, 1795-96. Rare première et unique édition de ces descriptions, historiques et géographiques des diverses parties du monde, établies par le Jésuite François Xavier Szuhànyi (Erlau 1742 - après 1821) à partir des récits des plus fameux voyageurs. L'ouvrage contient une description physique de chaque pays, de ses ressources naturelles, de ses richesses et de son commerce, de ses moeurs et coutumes, et de la religion qu'on y pratique. Les Turcs tiennent les tortues en horreur et, s'ils pouvaient, passeraient leur temps à fumer ; les Japonais ne boivent que l'eau chaude et reçoivent leurs invités assis; l'Alaska est une île, les Canadiens portent des lunettes protectrices contre l'aveuglement de la neige, etc. On notera la part importante faite à l'Amérique, le chapitre s'intitulant d'ailleurs "Americae Inventio". Il y est traité bien sûr de l'Amérique du Nord et du Canada, au lendemain du Traité de Paris qui reconnaissait l'indépendance des États-Unis d'Amérique, mais aussi de la Californie, du Chili, du Paraguay... Plus étonnante est la place accordée aux îles caraïbes, puisqu'un chapitre entier est consacré à chacune des îles de la Guadeloupe et de la Martinique. La Chine occupe les pp. 147 à 150, le Japon les pp. 150 à 153 de la première … [Click Below for Full Description]

MACDONALD, Andrew.]
A Geneve, et se trouve a Paris, chez Prualt, 1788. Together 2 works in 3 volumes bound as one, octavo (195 x 120 mm), L'Indépendant in two parts, the second part with separate pagination and register but no divisional title, as issued. Contemporary French marbled sheep, flat spine gilt in compartments with CM cipher, red morocco label, sides with gilt roll borders, marbled endpapers and edges. Skilful repair to headcaps and joints, occasional browning, L'Indépendant, pt 1, with 2 leaves (sigs. G1 and G2) bound out of order after sig. F4; very good. With the half-titles. First edition of each work. The Independent (1784) was an English-language novel in two volumes by the ill-fated Scottish poet and playwright Andrew Macdonald (1757-1790). It is here "imitated" by the French historian and translator François Soulés (1748-1809), author of the two-volume Histoire des troubles de l'Amérique anglaise (London, 1785), for the second edition of which Thomas Jefferson supplied Soulés with materials. In 1804, when he applied for Napoleon's recently established Légion d'honneur, Soulés stated that he had been resident in England for 12 years and had worked for Whitworth, the British ambassador to France. The cipher on the spine is that of Caroline Bonaparte (1782-1839), third and youngest sister of Napoleon. In 1800/02 she married Joachim Murat (1767-1815), who became King of Naples in 1808. After her husband was court-martialled and shot in 1815, she was forced to leave the country, and styled herself as the Countess of Lipona. She settled in Trieste, North Italy, and married General … [Click Below for Full Description]

Mirabeau was assisted in writing this work by the German physiocrat Jacob Mauvillon and by J. Thibaut de Lavaux. 'Oeuvre maîtresse de Mirabeau, ce grand rapportage contient un certain nombre de considérations sur la population (livre second). Elles situent leur auteur dans le prolongement direct des physiocrates, l'originalité de sa pensée résident moins dans une théorie générale, quasiment inexistante, que dans la critique farouche des moyens, sinon des fins, du 'populationisme'.

KANT, Immanuel.
Riga: Johann Friedrich Hartknoch, 1788. Octavo (230 x 135 mm). Contemporary interim decorated paper wrappers printed in black and white, uncut edges. Wrappers slightly discoloured, some wear to spine ends with one exposed cord, lower edges of covers ueneven, endpapers shortened along fore edge, contents browned and lightly foxed, overall a very good, wide-margined copy. Woodcut device to title, woodcut headpiece. Printed in Gothic type. A couple of small ink marks to lower edge of title page. First edition of Kant's Critique of Practical Reason, the second of his critical works, in which he develops the concept of categorical imperative. This work established Kant's moral thinking as a cardinal reference in the successive development of ethics. "The influence of Kant is paramount in the critical method of modern philosophy. No other thinker has been able to hold with such firmness the balance between speculative and empirical ideas. His penetrating analysis of the elements involved in synthesis, and the subjective process by which these elements are realized in the individual consciousness, demonstrated the operation of 'pure reason'; and the simplicity and cogency of his arguments achieved immediate fame" (PMM).
