DALRYMPLE, Sir John
London: W. Stahan and T. Cadell, 1788. Quarto, engraved vignette on title-page; an attractive untrimmed copy in the original boards, spine rather worn but sound. Separately issued third volume: with an account of a little known South Seas plan. An unusual survivor: Dalrymple's "Memoirs" was originally published as a two-volume set in 1771-3, but this so-called "Volume Second" did not appear until 1788, and seems to be very rare indeed (only very occasionally do library catalogues list all three volumes of the work, and we can find no record of a three volume set being offered for sale: it would seem that this additional volume, as is often the case with continuations published many years after the original work, was not often reunited with the original work).As a result, this single volume represents an unusual opportunity to complete Dalrymple's work, and is of particular significance as it prints a fascinating and little known account of detailed 1779 plan for an "intended expedition into the South Seas". As two important and lengthy appendices in this work make clear, Sir John Dalrymple (1726-1810) had been the prime-mover in a plan discussed in Scotland and considered at the highest levels of government, to surprise the Spanish by rounding the Cape of Good Hope, before establishing a base in New Holland or New Zealand with which to harass Spanish ships, in the style of earlier privateers such as Anson.Spain had entered the war between England and France in mid-1779, and several plans were discussed about attacking them in the South Seas. The first one to be seriously co … [Click Below for Full Description]

Commonwealth of Massachusetts
Printed by Adams and Nourse, printers to the Honorable General Court, Boston. 19 p. State seal in midst of title. Act passed March 27, 1788. Signed in print by James Warren, Speaker of the House, Samuel Adams, President of the Senate and approved by John Hancock and attessed to by John Avery, Jun. Secretary. This tax raised money from the towns to operate the government and was enacted just a few months after Massachusetts ratified the U.S. Constitution. Written above the title is "The Assesor of the Town of Machias." The Massachusetts General Court incorporated Machias as a town on June 23, 1784. It first encompassed present-day East Machias, Whitneyville, Machias and Marshfield. It was the first town incorporated between the Penobscot and the St. Croix rivers. The first naval battle of the American Revolution was the Battle of Machias. Machias is now located in the State of Maine. Maine was part of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts until 1820, when it voted to secede from Massachusetts. On March 15, 1820, it was admitted to the Union as the 23rd state under the Missouri Compromise. A bit tattered, small tears and mild staining and notes in pencil on front page. [E 974.4]

Burns, Robert
Ellisland, England, 1788. Autograph Letter Signed (ALS). Good/No Jacket. Autograph Letter Signed from Robert Burns to Robert Ainslie, June 14, 1788. One-page, on verso only. Letter is torn at edges, missing portion of right edge with one word missing because of tear. Folded and worn with minor additional loss of writing in middle of letter. Toning throughout. Burns had recently moved to the 170 acre farm, Ellisland and was going through a period of adjustment. Robert Ainslie a student of the law and much younger than Burns would become a close friend and confidant. Letter is not addressed but is documented in J. De Lancey Ferguson's "Letters of Robert Burns". Ferguson states that Ainslie allowed his friends's letters later to be published. The letter is transcribed in total in Ferguson's book and in Cromek in 1808 and evidently in Gebbie and Hunter in 1886. A portion of the manuscript of this letter was said to be at Eastern Illinois State Normal School (Eastern Illinois State University) but no record was found (Ferguson, Volume 1, 1931). '...I hate the language of complaint--Job, or some of his friends, says well, "why should a living man complain?" The letter goes on to ask Ainslie about "What books are you reading, or what is the subject of your thoughts, beside the great studies of your Profession?" Photos upon request.

BRIGGS, Richard
London: G. G. J. & J. Robinson,, 1788. being a Complete Guide to all Housekeepers. Octavo. Contemporary sheep, low bands bracketed by single gilt rules, gilt edge-roll, neatly rebacked with the original spine laid down, some restoration to the corners.f 12 engraved plates showing monthly bills of fare. A little rubbed, light browning and a scatter of foxing, but overall a very good copy. First edition. Briggs was employed for many years at the Globe tavern, Fleet Street; the White Hart, Holborn; and the Temple Coffee House, Fleet Street. His "book was aimed at housekeepers and has been described as 'largely a plagiarisation or, more charitably, a competent revision and enlargement' of John Farley's The London Art of Cookery of 1783. However, Briggs's work reveals considerable improvements over Farley's. Cooking times, methods, and quantities of ingredients are often clarified and Briggs includes a wider range of foods—notably fish and vegetables. Interestingly he broke new ground by including recipes for fish rarely mentioned in eighteenth-century cookery books, such as 'To Boil John-a-Dore', a simple recipe remarkably similar to one favoured by James Quin, the actor renowned for his predilection for this fish. Although the book was predominantly about English food there were none the less German, Spanish, West Indian, Italian, Dutch, French, and Jewish influences in the recipes" (ODNB). This uncommon and sought-after first edition has just 11 locations on OCLC. An unusually well-preserved copy in the carefully restored contemporary binding, which gives every sign of the be … [Click Below for Full Description]

[CALLANDER, John]
London: for the editor, 1788. Two volumes, octavo, early bookplate; contemporary tree calf, neatly rebacked with the original gilt spines laid down, double red morocco labels, a little rubbed. c. Callander's important work in an unusual 1788 edition. A very rare version of this important collection of voyage material, gathered partly as background for an early, serious proposal for European settlement of the 'Southern Continent'. The book is normally seen in its three-volume form published between 1766 and 1768, but this 1788 edition must surely have been published in order to fulfil contemporary interest in the Botany Bay venture.There is a copy of this unusual version in the British Library, and it is recorded by Sabin, the bibliographer of Americana, but the only record that we have found of a copy for sale is the entry in Maggs Bros. Voyages and Travels vol. IV part VIII of 1956. This is the only copy of this version that we have seen, here handled by us for the second time. It is not recorded by Ferguson, Davidson, Hill, Petherick, Kroepelien, Edge-Partington, or any of the other standard references consulted. It is evidently a re-issue of remainder sheets of the work, which the publisher has camouflaged with new title-pages and by roughly cancelling the number of the chapter that starts each volume to reduce it to "I".Based on the French account of De Brosses, Callander's collection in this form contains 41 narratives, some for the first time in English, generally prefaced by a general summation and short biography of the narrator. Included are the voyages of Hawkins, … [Click Below for Full Description]

Prudentius Clemens, Aurelius.
Parmae: Ex Regio typographeo, 1788. 4to (31.5 cm, 12.5"). 2 vols. I: [12], 71, [1], 302, [2], [303]–61, [3] pp. II: [4], 215, [1], 219–84, [2] pp. (text complete despite pagination). First edition of Prudentius from the Bodoni press. Prudentius (348 – ca. 410) was a Roman Christian poet born in Northern Spain, known for the asceticism he adopted late in life as well as for his lyric (Cathemerinon, Peristephanon), didactic (Apotheosis, Hamartigenia, Psychomachia), and polemical works (Contra Symmachum). The Psychomachia is particularly notable as one of the earliest Western examples of allegorical verse, exerting much influence on the subsequent medieval development of that genre.    This is a typically handsome Bodoni production with wide margins, an elegant type, and a different engraved vignette on each title-page; Dibdin calls it “one of the most beautiful editions of a classical author I ever beheld.”         Brooks, Compendiosa Bibliografia di Edizioni Bodoniane, 361; Brunet, IV, 916; Dibdin, II, 360–61; Graesse 467. On Prudentius, see: Catholic Encyclopedia online.

Première Edition Espagnole de ce célèbre roman picaresque "à la française" composé sur une période de 20 ans (1715-1735) et considéré comme l'un des chefs d'œuvre de Lesage. Cette traduction, parfois accusée de ne pas être assez fidèle au texte original, constitue en elle-même un intéressant tour de force littéraire. "Le Père José Francisco de Isla y Royo (1702-1781), prenant l'ouvrage pour la traduction d'un livre original espagnol perdu, l'a traduit dans sa langue (.). De Isla, qui utilise l'anagramme de Joaquín Federigo Issalp, a traduit le chef d'œuvre français avec un sens admirable de la langue et de la couleur, ce qui rendit plausible le plagiat de Lesage. La thèse du plagiat trouva, en Espagne, de nombreux défenseurs. C'est ainsi que Llorent, sans aucune preuve d'ailleurs, attribue le roman à Antonio de Solis y Ribadeneyra, l'auteur de l'Histoire de la Conquête du Mexique" (Laffont Bompiani). Bon exemplaire, malgré un petit manque au bas du dos du second volume; le troisième volume contient un cinquième tome provenant de l'édition donnée en 1791 par Benito Monfort à Valence.

Prudentius (348 ?- ca. 410) was a Roman Christian poet born in Northern Spain, known for the asceticism he adopted late in life as well as for his lyric (Cathemerinon, Peristephanon), didactic (Apotheosis, Hamartigenia, Psychomachia), and polemical works (Contra Symmachum). The Psychomachia is particularly notable as one of the earliest Western examples of allegorical verse, exerting much influence on the subsequent medieval development of that genre.

An attractive and rather uncommon version of Webber's death of Captain Cook, newly engraved by William Grainger, with good early hand-colouring. Although in a reduced format, the engraving is neatly executed, and the use of simple colouring is very effective. Grainger is known to have collaborated with the publisher Cooke on many popular works in the late 1780s and 1790s.Known to Beddie from copies in the Mitchell and Dixson collections, it is also held in the National Library of Australia; nonetheless, this popular version of the infamous scene is quite rare.

G. G. J. and J. Robinson. LEATHER BOUND. B00LDTKF16 1788 first edition G. G. J. and J. Robinson (London), 3 7/8 x 6 1/4 inches tall red full leather bound, gilt-lettered black leather label to spine, marbled endpapers and page edges, [4], 137 pp. Newly rebound in crimson Morocco. Apart from moderate foxing to the half title and very mild occasional foxing within, a very good copy - clean, bright and unmarked - of a rare 1788 commentary on British royal prerogative, then one of the central features of Great Britain's governance, published at a time when the debate over ratification of the US Constitution was in full swing, with a great deal of focus on which powers were given to the federal government and which were reserved to the citizenry. For example, in his fiery June 1788 oration to Virginia's ratifying convention, Patrick Henry cited the concept of royal prerogative in Europe in railing against the 'absurdity' of not including a Bill of Rights with the Constitution. In Great Britain, a 'country which is said to be in such full possession of freedom,' Patrick said, 'all rights not expressly and unequivocally reserved to the people, are impliedly and incidentally relinquished to rulers, as necessarily inseparable from the delegated powers.' There were numerous favorable reviews of this work in 1788 publications - e.g., The Monthly Review (R. Griffiths: London), Vol. 79, p. 374; The Analytical Review (J. Johnson: London), Vol. 2, p. 81; and The Scotts Magazine (Murray and Cochrane: Edinburgh), Vol 50, p. 555 - yet the book is quite rare, with no copies listed worldwide b … [Click Below for Full Description]

Plena piel de época, hilo dorado en planos, lomos con nervios, hierros dorados en los entrenervios y doble tejuelo –rojo y verde–, algo dañada en los cantos. Precioso ejemplar de la segunda edición, más apreciada que la primera. Nicolás Antonio está considerado el iniciador de la bibliografía española moderna. Sus obras capitales como bibliógrafo fueron la Bibliotheca hispana nova, publicada en 1672 con el título Bibliotheca hispana sive hispanorum, y la Bibliotheca hispana vetus (póstuma, impresa en 1696). La Bibliotheca hispana consta de dos partes; la segunda, Bibliotheca hispana nova, apareció en Roma en 1672 en dos volúmenes, abarcando todos los autores españoles desde 1500 a 1672, y fue reeditada en Madrid entre 1783 y 1788, con cambios, por el ilustrado Francisco Pérez Bayer a iniciativa del director de la Biblioteca Real de Madrid, Juan de Santander, que incorporó al primer texto impreso numerosas adiciones y correcciones que el autor le hizo en los últimos años de su vida; está escrita en latín y dispuesta en forma de diccionario, así como acompañada de varios índices que facilitan su manejo. La edición de Joaquín Ibarra de la Bibliotheca puede tenerse como uno de los mejores impresos españoles del siglo XVIII, no solo por sus discretas ilustraciones sino por el cuidado tipográfico.
