[Mazzei, Filippo]
Paris, 1788. Four volumes bound in two. Contemporary vellum backed boards, contemporary manuscript labels. Very good. Uncut. The author emigrated to America from Italy in 1773 to introduce the cultivation of grapes and olives to the United States. He became a neighbor of Thomas Jefferson in Virginia, settling near Monticello at Jefferson's request, and this association led to their long friendship and the author's acquaintance with Franklin and Adams. A staunch Republican, he took an active role in the Independence movement. In this work Mazzei outlines the history of the American colonies, the causes of the Revolution, and the economy and government of the United States. Also discussed are Indians, slavery, emigration, and the Society of the Cincinnati. An important work which Dumas Malone characterizes as "probably the most reliable of all the works of the period on the United States." Jefferson aided Mazzei in the compilation of the work while acting as American minister in Paris. HOWES M456. SABIN 47206. MALONE, THOMAS JEFFERSON II, pp.109-10. REESE, REVOLUTIONARY HUNDRED 87.

Paris: Chez Froulle, 1788. First. hardcover. good.

A Colle, et Se trouve A Paris: Chez Froulle, 1788. First EditionIn 1773, Filippo Mazzei emigrated to Virginia and lived on his vineyard that adjoined Jefferson's Monticello estate. He began a long friendship with Thomas Jefferson and became acquainted with John Adams and Benjamin Franklin. Mazzei was in favor of the cause of American independence "...one of the largest and probably the most reliable works of the period on the United States. Much of the author's knowledge of American affairs had been gained from his former neighbor (Thomas Jefferson) in the first place, and the historical value of his work was considerably if not primarily due to his reliance on this invaluable source." Dumas Malone, Jefferson and the Rights of Man, p. 109. Howes M-456. Sabin 47206. Internally, a tight, bright set.

SCOTTI, Marcello Eusebio (1742-1800)
Stamperia Simoniana, 1788. In 8vo (mm 182x110); pp. XLIV, 281, (3). Segnatura: a-b8 c6 A-R8 S6 (le c. b4v, S5v e S6 bianche). Legatura in piena pergamena coeva, con doppio tassello al dorso recante titolo, autore e numero del tomo in oro. Lievi mancanze e spellature al dorso e ai piatti, angoli un po' danneggiati, aloni e fioriture nel testo dovute alla qualità della carta, ma nel complesso ottima copia genuina. PRIMA EDIZIONE DI GRANDE RARITà. L'autore nato a Napoli nel 1742, da una famiglia originaria dell'isola di Procida, ricevette la prima educazione presso il Collegio dei Cinesi. L'abilità mostrata nello studio convinse ben presto i suoi insegnanti, nonostante la giovane età, a giudicarlo degno di diventare loro collega. Scelse lo stato religioso per potersi più facilmente dedicare ai propri studi e con il passare degli anni crebbe la sua straordinaria abilità sia come studioso che come oratore. Nel 1779 fu chiamato all'Accademia delle scienze e delle lettere di Napoli e successivamente a predicare ad Ischia e ad Aversa. Con la fama, tuttavia, giunsero anche i primi problemi, legati all'accusa mossagli di "spargere nel popolo massime pericolose per la fede". Non potendo più predicare dal pulpito, Scotti ideò un'opera destinata all'istruzione dei marinai: il Catechismo nautico. L'opera era suddivisa in tre parti: nella prima erano presentati i doveri generali, nella seconda i doveri dei marinai e dei capitani di nave, mentre nella terza erano esposti i doveri di coloro che fanno parte dell'armata navale. Nella prima parte, l'unica ad essere stata stampata, l'autore pre … [Click Below for Full Description]

BARTHELEMY (Abbé).
De Bure, Paris, 1788. 5 volumes in-4, demi veau , dos lisse orné, pièces de titre et de tomaison, tranches marbrées, l'atlas a une reliure différente. Edition Originale, bien complète de ses quatre volumes et de l'atlas.Jean-Jacques Barthélemy (1716-1795) composa son ouvrage à partir de 1758 mais ne se résolut à le publier qu'à la veille de la Révolution, la publication d'un ouvrage d'érution minutieuse sur la vie antique semblait anachronique en ces temps très troublés, mais l'impact auprès du public fut immédiat et son succès populaire ne se démentira pas jusqu'au XIXe siècle. L'auteur substitue à l'analyse historique traditionnelle, la description des lieux, des personnages, des us et coutumes tel qu'observés par un voyageur fictif, un jeune Scythe nommé Anacharsis, qui aurait parcouru la Grèce vers le milieu du Ive siècle avant J.-C.

Beckford, William
London: Printed for T. and J. Egerton, 1788. viii,99pp. Modern black cloth, spine gilt. Contemporary ownership inscription on titlepage, scattered manuscript annotations. Light toning and dampstaining. Very good. William Beckford was a historian and sugar planter in Jamaica, whose cousin of the same name authored the Gothic novel VATHEK. "At the death of his father in 1756 Beckford inherited the greater of part of his estate in Great Britain and Jamaica. It consisted chiefly of four sugar estates and 910 slaves in Jamaica. The total value of the estate was approximately �120,000 sterling. Beckford and his wife (about whom nothing is known) went to Jamaica in February 1774 and remained there for thirteen years.... Beckford returned to England in 1786. Within a few days of his landing he was intercepted by a bailiff and incarcerated in the Fleet prison as a debtor.... In the confines of the Fleet prison he took up his pen, partly to gain the attention of men of influence who might intervene on his behalf, partly to relieve his pecuniary embarrassment, and partly to defend the institution of slavery at the same time that he urged a course of amelioration upon his planter friends in the West Indies" - DNB. This scarce work was one of the fruits of his prison labor. CUNDALL, BIBLIOGRAPHIA JAMAICENSIS 19. SABIN 4251.

Claude-Emmanuel-Joseph –Pierre, marquis de Pastoret (1756-1840) fut élevé chez les oratoriens à Lyon et fit ses études de droit à Aix. Puis il voyagea beaucoup « pour appliquer à la connaissance des lieux et des hommes les brillantes études qu’il avait achevées, et devint en 1781, c’est-à-dire aussitôt que l’âge lui permit, conseiller à la cour des aides de Paris » (Michaud, t. 32, p. 237).

Contemporary tree calf, flat spine divided into six compartments, one with red morocco spine label ("Plays"), the rest gilt with small crane tool. Extremities rubbed, joints cracked, small library label to front cover, faint pencil notes on title-pages identifying authors, note on flyleaf in 19th-century hand listing contents, bookplate. First edition. 27, [1] pp. 8vo. [in:] A Volume of Plays, as They are Acted at the Theatre-Royal, Smoke-Alley. Dublin. Containing The Young Quaker, The Castle of Andalusia, St Patrick's Day, The Mogul Tale, Belphegor; or, The Wishes, The Son in Law. [Dublin]: Printed for the Booksellers, 1788. The first edition, unauthorized, of Sheridan's St. Patrick's Day, bound with five other contemporary plays, each with its own title page and a general title ("A Volume of Plays"). The other plays include three by John O'Keeffe (The Young Quaker, The Castle of Andulsia, and The Son-in-Law), Elizabeth Inchbald's The Mogul Tale and Miles Peter Andrews' Belphegor. The Rothschild catalogue conjectures that the plays "were probably printed together with the intention of separating them for sale," though the presence of the general title in this copy argues that the plays were also to be sold together. The plays were certainly printed together, as the registration is continuous (for example, the first three leaves of St. Patrick's Day are unsigned E4-6). St. Patrick's Day was first performed at Covent Garden on 2 May 1775, but no authorized edition was printed in Sheridan's lifetim … [Click Below for Full Description]

NECKER JACQUES
Londra, chez G. Regnault, 1788. Cm. 20, pp. (4) 544. Con bel ritratto dell'A. inciso in rame all'antiporta. Bella legatura coeva in pelle maculata; dorso a 5 nervi con titoli su tass. e filetti dorati. Tagli rossi. Esemplare praticamente perfetto. Jacques Necker (1732-1804), celebre economista ginevrino, fu ministro delle Finanze di Luigi XVI e ricoprì numerosi incarichi politici di primissimo piano, non riuscendo però a coniugare le sue grandi qualità di economista a un dinamico pragmatismo politico. Questo saggio delinea un'importante riflessione sul ruolo delle opinioni religiose nella società settecentesca, viste come baluardo contro gli abusi al diritto di uguaglianza, dilaganti in nome della supremazia del diritto alla proprietà privata. Verosimilmente prima edizione, comunque decisamente più rara di quella, con stesso anno di stampa e medesimo numero di pagine, che riporta al frontespizio Parigi in luogo di Lione.Cfr. Kvk; Cat. Einaudi, 4098. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
