Good general appearance.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 peac … [Click Below for Full Description]

More, Hannah
London: Printed for T. Cadell, in the Strand, 1788. First Edition. An excellent copy of this exceptionally rare abolitionist work. Quarter calf with marbled boards; text block is tight and internally clean, with only occasional mild foxing not affecting text. Slavery: A Poem has not appeared at auction since 1956, and according to OCLC the only known copy in an institution is housed at the British Library. Hannah More, one of the leading activists of her time, firmly believed in applying education to improve the lives of women and minorities. Composed to support William Wilberforce's parliamentary campaign for abolition, her poem Slavery was read aloud at rallies and meetings, and its use of sound was designed to strike at its audience mentally and emotionally, encouraging listeners to question the importance of skin color. Drawing on religious doctrines and political philosophy, she urged listeners to consider the illogic of their own racism; and she powerfully blended these arguments into a tragic narrative depicting a female slave being torn from her children. "Does then th' immortal principle within Change with the casual colour of a skin? Does matter govern spirit? or is mind Degraded by the form to which tis join'd? No: they have heads to think, and hearts to feel, And souls to act with firm, tho' erring zeal; For they have keen affections, kind desires, Love strong as death, and active patriot fires." The Broadview Anthology suggests that More's poem was widely read among abolitionists, and in its own time it was considered successful for its ability to "force pro-sl … [Click Below for Full Description]

PROVENCE -
A Aix, Des Imprimeries de B. Gibelin-David & T. Emeric-David, 1788. 406 pp. 4to. Modern cloth. Kress B.1464; not in Goldsmiths. Original edition. Signed on the title-page by the clerk of the court, Bertrand, as was required. The publication of this volume was deemed necessary with an eye on educating those involved in discussing the new constitution and laws of the Provence concerning the various contributions of the three orders. The project generated an enormous number of proposals which often showed grave misunderstanding and misrepresentation of the constitution and the law. This work was printed on the expense of the nobility.

MOZART, Wolfgang Amadeus 1756-1791
We believe this to be the only autograph manuscript of a complete work by Mozart offered for sale within the last 25 years. The present manuscript is also interesting for its reference to "Turkish music," also employed in the composer's Die Entführing aus dem Serail K384 and the Alla Turca piano rondo .331. The piece, quite programmatic in nature, dates from Mozart's "annus mirabilis," 1788, the year in which he also composed the last of the three symphonies (K543, K550 and K551, the "Jupiter}") and the string trio K563. "La Bataille" was associated with events in Austria's military campaign against the Turks in 1788-1791; its instrumentation is particularly notable in calling for various combinations including trumpet, fife, and drum and, in the coda, war-like sound effects created by the methods in which the basses are struck. "Mozart composed dance music throughout his life. His first surviving dances, a set of minuets composed in Salzburg, dated from 1769; between that date and 1791 he composed over thirty sets of dances, as well as a number of independent works, around 200 single dances in all, for Prague and Vienna, as well as Salzburg. Mozart was an enthusiastic and accomplished dancer himself..." "... In Vienna in the 1780s Mozart's enthusiasm for dancing coincided with a general upsurge in the popularity of the pastime... Dancing took place in inns, parks and dance halls but the highpoint of the year was the series of Carnival balls held under the auspices of the court in the Redoutensall... As Kammermusicus in the court from December 1787, Mozart's only … [Click Below for Full Description]

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.

JONES, Sir William.
Calcutta: Printed and sold by Manuel Cantopher, 1788. FIRST EDITION. "This slim paper, read to the Bengal Asiatic Society in 1786 and published in its Transactions, marks a turning-point in the history of linguistics and signalled the birth of comparative philology... "In 1786 Jones made his epoch-making discovery of the relationship between the Sanskrit, Gothic, Greek and Latin languages -- to which he later, erroneously, thought he could add Egyptian. His clear understanding of the basic principles of scientific linguistics provided the foundation on which Rask, Bopp and Grimm built the imposing structure of comparative Indo-European studies" (PMM). Jones (1746-1794)had established his reputation as an orientalist by his Grammar of the Persian language (1771). In 1783 he was knighted and appointed a judge of the high court in Calcutta, the administrative seat of the East India Company, an office he held until his death. Here he indulged in his oriental studies, founded the Asiatic Society of Bengal, of which he was president, and edited its journal. The first paper in this, the first volume of its journal, is "A dissertation on the orthography of Asiatick words in Roman letters", also by Jones, with 7 plates. Printing and the Mind of Man 235. The London reprint of this journal is common, but this original edition, printed in Calcutta, is much scarcer. Neither Jones's name nor the title of his paper are given on its first page.Large 4to, 1 leaf, pp. xvi, 465, (1), and 33 engraved plates. Modern half calf.

[Peter the Great]; Staehlin, (Jakob von)
London: Printed for J. Murray, No. 32, Fleet Street; J. Sewell, No. 32, Cornhill; and W. Creech, at Edinburgh, 1788. First edition in English of this lively oral history of Peter I of Russia (1672-1725), first published in German in 1785. Peter the Great overhauled the Russian military, introduced compulsory education for children of the nobility, and replaced the ranking of officials by birth with a merit-based system. Many of his policies, which elevated Western values over traditional Russian ones, proved deeply antagonistic to the political and religious establishment of his day. The English, however, tended toward "Petrolatry," viewing Peter the Great as a modern and enlightened philosopher king (Cross, Peter the Great Through British Eyes). Author Jakob von Staehlin came to Petersburg in 1735, where he headed the arts department at the Imperial Academy of Sciences (now the Russian Academy of Arts), eventually serving as tutor and librarian to Peter's grandson. In this volume, he collects eyewitness accounts of Peter the Great, gathered during his decades among the Russian nobility and royal family: "But for the pains I have taken, the facts here contained would have been buried in oblivion; and I conceive I have done an action both useful and agreeable to my contemporaries and posterity, by preserving a thousand traits that mark the character of the Russian hero." One account tells of how, eager to support Russian industry, Peter spent a month learning to work the iron forges near Moscow; another tells of his leniency to an unsuccessful assassin; and another recounts … [Click Below for Full Description]

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 Winter has been so cold that I have not been out surveying in that quarter where Doctor Culbertrom land lyes [sic], and it is out of my power to tell whether it is clean of prior claims or not.

MANUSCRIPTS)
1788 - "The Beatification of Juan Palafox y Mendoza: 2 Eighteenth-Century Manuscripts". Two manuscripts (20 x 28cm) 39ll. + 3bll. and 52ll. en Latin, Spanish and Italian in a bordeaux cloth box. The manuscripts belong to the lawsuit brought by the "devil's advocate" against Palafox. They consist of a detailed reading of Palafox's writings in search of possible offences against orthodoxy. The texts by Palafox in Spanish or Latin are accompanied by the comments of the devil's advocate in Latin. There are some notes in Italian. The case for the beatification of Palafox y Mendoza (b. Fitero, Navarra 24 June 1600, d. Osma 1 October 1659) was initiated in 1726 under Benedicto XIII and continued under the papacies of Benedict XIV, Clemente XIII, Clemente XIV and Pío VI. It became a political question since it was opposed by the Jesuits whose exemptions and privileges Palafox, as Bishop of Puebla and Viceroy of New Spain, had denounced. A vote by the Congregation then responsible for the cause was taken on 28 February 1777 and twenty-six out of forty one prelates favoured the continuation of Palafox's cause of beatification but the final decision was suspended by Pope Pius VI. As this manuscript record of the examination of Palafox's orthodoxy demonstrates the matter was far from being settled. In fact it was not resumed until 2003 under Pope John Paul II. On 17 January 2009 Pope Benedict XVI approved the decree of the Congregation for the Causes of Saints recognizing Palafox's heroic virtue, thus granting him the title of Venerable. On 27 March 2010 Pope Benedict XVI promulgated t … [Click Below for Full Description]

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.

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]
