BOURDE DE VILLEHUET, Jacques, Chevalier de Sauseuil, translator.
London: S. Hooper, 1788. Quarto, with 13 engraved plates of naval tactics; a a few early annotations; contemporary marbled calf, flat spine gilt with anchor motif repeated in compartmemts; an early naval diagram in pencil on front free endpaper. An important study of naval tactics and strategies: earliest issue of the first of several English editions, derived from the French original which had first appeared in 1765, and was significant in the development of English naval thought. It contains detailed descriptions of how to handle a fleet and of the system of numerary signals devised by Mahé de la Bourdonnais. Bourdé de Villehuet served in ships of the French East Indies company before joining the naval service. Later, in 1798, he was part of the naval force that occupied Corfu, Zante and Cephalonia.The work was endorsed by the Royal Academy of Science in Paris and deemed "well worthy of publication, both on account of the mathematical principles of manouevres which are therein explained with perspicuity and method, as well as the particular experiments and rules of practice with which it abounds; and we consider it as highly deserving the approbation of the Academy' [p. vi]. This is the first issue, identified by its dedication to Prince William Henry and a short errata; in a later issue the dedication is to the Duke of Clarence, the title Prince William Henry assumed later in 1788, and there is an additional leaf of errata. Copies of both issues are recorded at both the Bibliothèque Nationale and the National Maritime Museum. This edition is not held in any Australian li … [Click Below for Full Description]

MARSHALL, William
1788. Two engraved maps (one folding & the other double-page). 4 p.l., 413, [1] pp.; 2 p.l., 366, [6] pp. Two vols. 8vo, orig. blue paper-backed boards (spines & corners a little worn & rubbed), uncut. London: T. Cadell, 1788. First edition. Marshall (1745-1818), wrote a series of studies of farming in various English countries published between 1787 and 1798. The present two volumes were the first in the series which eventually comprised twelve volumes. "Modern agricultural historians have generally held that Marshall's works on English farming are superior to those of his rival, Arthur Young, as they are more systematically arranged and based on a more thorough knowledge of a district by personal residence there. Unlike Young, Marshall was cautious about experimentation, preferring rather to advocate the best practices approved by experienced farmers. On the other hand, he lacked Young's pithy and more readable style, and acquired fewer close contacts with the leading farming figures of the time. Marshall's career, indeed, suffered in some degree from his native bluntness and acid tongue, his pride, and his sensibility to slights. Nevertheless, from the independence of his views arose his remarkably early support for agricultural education, and his belief in the necessity of studying agriculture on a regional basis, both of which were ideas well before their time."-ODNB. Marshall was interested in dialects and he was the first to form a collection of words peculiar to the Yorkshire dialect. It is appended here (pp. 314-66) and contains about eleven hundred … [Click Below for Full Description]

Gordon, William
London: Printed for the Author..., 1788. Four volumes. [26],504; [8],584; [8],499; [8],445,[35]pp., plus nine engraved folding maps and plates. Contemporary tree calf, expertly rebacked to style retaining original labels. Very good. A handsome set of the "first full-scale history of this war by an American; to its preparation Jefferson contributed some aid" (Howes). "Gordon is deservedly reckoned as the most impartial and reliable of the numerous historians of the American Revolution" - Sabin. Gordon was a dissenting minister in England, who like many of his class sympathized with the contention of the Thirteen Colonies. Going to America during the disturbances and becoming pastor of the church at Jamaica Plain, now a district of Boston, he was throughout the Revolution a spectator close at hand of many important events, and the associate of many of the chief patriots. Later scholarship has shown that a good part of Gordon's history was taken from the ANNUAL REGISTER. This work is noted for its folding maps, engraved by T. Conder, which include a general map of the United States as well as maps of New England, New Jersey, Virginia, the Carolinas, and the areas surrounding Boston and New York City, plus battle plans of Fort Moultrie and Yorktown.

Jean Francoise Chastellux, Marquis De.
Paris: Chez Prault, Imprimeur Du Rof, 1788-01-01. Second Edition. Hardcover. Very Good. Stated 2nd edition. Octavos, 20 cm. Bound in full contemporary French calf. Gilt ruled spine. With 2 folding maps & 3 folding plates. A fresh, crisp copy. Clean, unmarked pages. Howes C324; Sabin 12227. <br> "In its completed form constitutes the first trustworthy record of life in the United States" - Howes. "This journal is one of the most notable of American travel accounts of the Revolutionary period not only because of Chastellux's keen observation and directness of his narrative but also because of his acute comments on society and the character of the people in different walks of life," (Clark I, 212). Chastellux served in the American Revolution as a Major General in the French expeditionary forces of the Comte de Rochambeau. Chastellux acted as the principal liaison officer between the French commander in chief and George Washington. After the war he recounted his experiences of the American Revolution, an account of his friend George Washington, and his travel in America (Virginia, Pennsylvania, Connecticut, Massachusetts, and New Hampshire) immediately after the war in this book. George Washington library at Mount Vernon had a copy of Chastellux's book (which sold at Christies for $1 million in 2013.

Very good. xiii (of xv), 131pp. plus 1 page list of Tracts on Slavery. London, J. Phillips, First published in Philadelphia in 1771, this edition was published afterBenezet's death in 1784,with the4pp.?advertisement? before the introductionserving as a brief biography of the author. One of a series of pamphlets produced by Benezet explicating the horrors of slavery with a view to abolition. Though there is a certain amount of repetition of sources between these pamphlets, this title in particular was intended specifically as an ?impartial enquiry? to vindicate the oft cited pro-slave trade justification that ?the slavery of the Negroes took its rise from a desire, in the purchasers, to save the lives of such of them as were taken captives in war, who would otherwise have been sacrificed to the implacable revenge of their conquerors? By examining a variety of first hand accounts of trade and exploration on the African continent, Benezet sets out to fully discredit this assertion. He does this through outlining the influence of European factors and trading posts on local conflict, in particular emphasising the corrupting influence that tax on slave ships had on local rulers. Alongside this, the frank descriptions of African so … [Click Below for Full Description]

Il libro racconta come sono stati ricevuti dagli indigeni e il loro re, e come vivevano, fino che il re ha detto di costruire una nave di viaggiare a Macao, affidando il figlio alle cure di capitano Wilson, che ha ricevuto un'educazione occidentale. Georges Keate, utilizzando i diari del capitano, ha stabilito la nave racconto di viaggio del Antilope che è andato a Macao. L'introduzione è una ricerca bibliografica dell'esistenza di queste isole.

A l'époque de la mort de Saint-Simon, ses manuscrits dont l'inventaire fut dressé par un commissaire du Châtelet, furent saisis comme papiers d'Etat et transférés au ministère des Affaires étrangères. De la masse considérable de ces manuscrits (123 volumes et 162 portefeuilles), seuls les Mémoires furent accessibles à quelques personnes dont Voltaire, Duclos, Marmontel, ou Mme Du Deffant. Ces extraits qui sont considérés comme la première originale, furent les premiers à être livrés au public, suivis de compléments, toujours par Soulavie, en 1789 (4 T. in 8), puis tout ceci augmenté dans les Oeuvres Complètes en 1791 (13 vol. in 8) ; le texte authentique et complet de Saint-Simon, donc en grande partie original n'a paru qu'en 1829-1830 (chez Sautelet, 21 vol.). Pendant une longue partie de sa vie, Saint-Simon avait pris l'habitude, chaque soir, de noter tout ce qu'il avait vu, appris, ou deviné ou qu'on lui avait rapporté sur toutes les personnes et les évènements ou les situations, même les plus anodins, il s … [Click Below for Full Description]

Abbad y Lasierra, Iñigo; Antonio Valladares de Sotomayor, ed.
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."

Printed and sold by Punchard & Jermyn. Sold also by Vallance and Conder No. 120 Cheapside and Buckland Paternoster-Row London; Smitheman Braintree; Rogers Bury; and Loder Woodbridge, 1788. a little browned in places, first 2 gatherings a little sprung, pp. xiv, 202, 8vo, original calf, circular red lettering piece on spine, lettering piece chipped, binding rubbed, crack in upper joint. Susannah Harrison (1752-1784) was an English working-class religious poet. Her 1780 collection Songs in the Night went through at least twenty-one editions in Britain and America, making it 'one of the best selling collections written by a laboring-class poet in the late eighteenth century' (Bridget Keenan, 'Mysticims and Mystifications: The Demands of Laboring-Class Religious Poetry', Criticism, Vol. 47, No. 4 (Fall 2005), pp. 471-91). 'Probably born at Ipswich, of poor parents, [Harrison] entered domestic service when she was sixteen. Four years later illness permanently invalided her. Although without regular education, she taught herself to write, and developed much poetic power and piety. She reluctantly consented to the publication of the verses which she sang at home while awaiting death and called Songs in the Night (after Job 35:10). In the first edition (1780) they are stated to be 'by a young woman under deep afflictions', and were edited by Dr John Conder, a Congregationalist minister. A second edition was issued in 1781, with eleven additional pages. Dr Conder supplied several pages of 'Recommendation', and Susannah added an acrostic to show her name.

GORDON, William (1728-1807)
London: Printed for the Author, 1788. 4 volumes, 8vo. 9 engraved folding maps and plates. Repaired tear to map of Yorktown. Contemporary tree calf, rebacked. The first edition of the "first full-scale history of this war by an American; to its preparation Jefferson contributed some aid" (Howes). Gordon was a dissenting minister in England, who like many of his class sympathized with the contention of the Thirteen Colonies. Going to America during the disturbances, and becoming pastor of the church at Jamaica Plain, now a district of Boston, he was throughout the Revolution a spectator close at hand of many important events, and the associate of many of the chief patriots. "Gordon is deservedly reckoned as the most impartial and reliable of the numerous historians of the American Revolution" (Sabin). The work is noted for its folding maps, engraved by T. Conder, which include a general map of the United States, as well as maps of New England, New Jersey, Virginia, the Carolinas, maps of the areas surrounding Boston and New York City, plus battle plans of Fort Moultrie and Yorktown.

KANT, Immanuel.
Riga: Johann Friedrich Hartknoch, 1788. Octavo (195 x 118 mm). Recent half sprinkled calf and decorated boards, spine ruled in blind and in gilt in compartments, red morocco label, red edges. Original free endpapers preserved, with an ink ownership inscription to the front one; occasional light spotting as usual, final leaf with a small ink annotation; a very good copy. Printer's woodcut vignette on title, printed in Gothic type. Ownership inscription to front free endpaper. 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).
