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]

SZUHÀNYI (Francisco Xaverio)
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'. Outre ses considérations, et des données statistiques sur les habitants de la Prusse, on trouve dans les autres volumes des renseignements d'ordre économico-politique.

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).

Morris, Lewis
Morrisania, 1788. [1]p. plus integral address leaf. Folio. Old fold lines. Light soiling and toning. Slight separation at some folds. About very good. In a blue half morocco and cloth clamshell case. Affectionate letter written by Lewis Morris to his son, Jacob, congratulating him on the birth of a daughter. Lewis Morris, the brother of Gouverneur Morris, was one of the few members of the landed gentry of the state of New York who supported the colonial cause. He served in the Continental Congress, was a signer of the Declaration of Independence, and served in both the New York State Militia and its Senate. His son, Jacob, though educated for a mercantile career, was moved by the patriotic fervor of the times and served as aide to both generals Charles Lee and Nathanael Greene; he served with distinction at Fort Moultrie. After the war he served in the New York legislature; the town of Morris, New York, which he settled, is named for him. Lewis Morris writes: "My dear Son, I most sincerely congratulate you on Polly's safe delivery of as fine a girl as ever you saw, it looks like your Mother, the finest feature in her face is her nose, which is very large; Polly was delivered on the 21st instant, a little after four o'clock in the afternoon, by old Mother Sickels, and she had a very fine time of it, and the old woman went away well pleased after tea with her fee. She is now very well, and has her nurse with her who seems a good creature, so that we expect in a short time she will be down again and making her boys winter cloaks, which she was very busy about just befor … [Click Below for Full Description]

Locke, John; Nikolai Nikitich Popovskii
v Tipografii Kompanii Tipograficheskoi, Moscow 1788 - Octavo (22 × 14 cm). Contemporary calf; red and gilt-lettered spine label; VIII, 323 pp. Bookplate of the distinguished collector Martin Winkler. Boards rubbed; front free end paper lightly soiled; one leaf with small tear to margin, not affecting text; still about very good. First part (of two) of the first Russian translation of Locke's famous pedagogical reflections, first published 1759, and very rare. "Despite the fact that Locke occupied a central place in European Enlightenment thought, his works were little known in Russia. Prokopovich, Kantemir, Tatishchev and perhaps Peter himself were acquainted with Locke's ideas, but for most Russians in the eighteenth century Locke was little more than an illustrious name. Locke's one book that did have a palpable impact was his Some Thoughts Concerning Education. Yet though Locke as pedagogue was popular, his reception in Russia, as Marc Raeff has noted, was overshadowed by the then current 'infatuation with Rousseau's pedagogical ideas'" (Marcus C. Levitt, "On Locke's Reception in Eighteenth-Century Russia," 219). Moreover, moralist literature as such was only scarcely represented in Russian publications of the second half of the century. Originally written for a close friend, Locke's 1693 text sets out a system for training noblemen by fostering healthy bodies and virtuous minds, based on the philosopher's assumption that all children are born without innate ideas or characteristics. The work was perhaps the most influential work on education of the eighteenth century, w … [Click Below for Full Description]

PRESENT STATE]
London G. Kearsley MDCCLXXXVIII, 1788. 12mo., xii + 262 + (2)pp., including the final errata leaf, with the old blindstamp of Worcester Public Library on title-page and occasionally elsewhere, and with the fine 19th century bookplate of the old Worcester Library> on pastedown, old, probably original, marbled boards, these rather rubbed, neatly rebacked and labelled, entirely uncut. A good copy. First edition. It is not listed (not noticed?) in either Pine-Coffin (Bibl. of British and American travel in Italy>) or Olschki (Viaggi in Europa secoli XVI-XIX>). Although self evidently this is substantially a distillation of the observations already made by Patrick Brydone in his Tour through Sicily and Malta> (1773), on the one hand, and by Henry Swinburne in his Travels in the two Sicilies> (1783-5), on the other, the author claims rather more than that in his preliminary Advertisement. 'The following work was originally compiled by a person of distinguished abilities, for the use of some young people, and contains all that is interesting in Mr. Brydone's Tour>, and Mr. Swinburne's Travels>; the very curious Observations> of Sir W. Hamilton, on the earthquake at Messina; the substance of Vertot's Knights of Malta>, &c. The publisher flatters himself that it will be found not only one of the most entertaining books for young persons, but a complete guide to the curious traveller who intends to visit those regions, so remarkable for all the wonders of art and nature'.
