CANOVAI, STANISLAO
Firenze: Nella Stamp. De Pietro Allegrini, 1788. 4to, contemporary vellum, gilt lettered spine, a.e. stained red. A treatise by Florentine historian and mathematician, Stanislao Canovai (1740-1811), that attempts to restore the reputation of Amerigo Vespucci as the founder of the new world, which was named for him, but he was not generally credited with being the first one there. Canovai makes the case that Vespucci set foot in America one year before Columbus. Canovai's Elogio d'Amerigo Vespucci went through several editions, and the merits of it were debated for decades as new, revised editions appeared. See, for example, a substantial discussion of it in the North American Review, April 1821 (JSTOR). From the library of collector Brent Gration-Maxfield, with his interesting and extensive notes in pencil on the free endpapers, with bibliographical citations and statements (albeit not entirely correct ones) about the rarity of this volume. Skinos book-label on the verso of the front free endpaper. Copies are noted with a frontis portrait of Vespucci, but that is an engraving of a later date, copies of which are sometimes inserted into earlier editions of the book. Slight wear to the edges of the binding; fine copy. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

RIQUETTI, Count Honoré Gabriel Mirabeau
Londres [i.e. Paris], 1788. 1788 History of PRUSSIA SECRETS French Revolution Controversy Riquetti Mirabeau Riqueti, Count of Mirabeau was an 18th-century French Revolution leader known for his involvement in political controversies and scandals. One of his most notable cases came following his mission to the royal court in Prussia. He published a book entitled ‘The Secret History of the Court of Berlin’ in which he described the Prussian royalty, including King Frederick the Great, as a weak and incompetent. The French government was appalled at the contents of Mirabeau’s treatise and censored the contents before it was mass produced. Not all of the contents, however, were controversial in nature. This eight volume French set covers economic policies, descriptions of Prussian and German people, and the political situation of Germanic states such as Bavaria and Saxony. This book inspired many of the French Revolution ideas, especially those which opposed the French government. Like many controversial French Revolution-era books, this book was published in Paris with ‘Londres’ (or London) on the title page. Item number: #4643 Price: $950 RIQUETTI, Count Honoré Gabriel Mirabeau De la monarchie prussienne sous Frédéric le Grand; avec un appendice contenant des recherches sur la situation actuelle des principales contrées de l'Allemagne Londres [i.e. Paris], 1788.

The Marquis had served in the American Revolutionary War, and upon his return wrote extensively about his experience. According to the author J.P. Brissot (1754-1793), Beauvoir spoke with a harsh bias against: 1) the Quakers for being gloomy, insipid, churlish and amoral; 2) the African American slaves as not human enough to understand and feel badly about their predicament, … [Click Below for Full Description]

CONSTITUTION
Boston, MA, 1788. No binding. Condition: Fine. Massachusetts Centinel (illustrator). Newspaper. Massachusetts Centinel, February 13, 1788 (Volume VIII, pp. 171-174). Boston: Benjamin Russell. 4 pp., 9 5/8 x 14 7/8 in. This newspaper is replete with Constitution-related content, including minutes from the debates of Massachusetts' State Ratifying Convention - everything from discourse on standing armies to Fisher Ames' hearkening back to 1775 with, "WE MUST UNITE OR DIE"; a poem to Washington on his birthday; a fictional dialogue, The Federal Anti-Federalist, Returned to His Neighbours; a rare example of one of Benjamin Russell's famed 'Pillars' illustration series; and a great deal of reporting on the popular reception of the news of ratification, expressed in particular by an enormous parade and surrounding celebrations. The Massachusetts Centinel employed the Federal Pillars political imagery to announce the ratification of the Constitution by successive states. In this issue, the Centinel announces the pending ratification by New Hampshire. "This day the Convention of the State of New Hampshire, meet at Exeter, for the purpose of erecting another PILLAR, to support the great Federal Superstructure; by ratifying the proposed Constitution." On February 6, 1788, Massachusetts ratified the United States Constitution by a vote of 187 to 168, the sixth and largest state to do so. Two days later, the people of Boston engaged in a grand procession, led by the "Mechanicks" and Tradesmen of Boston, "to express their approbation of the conduct of the Gentlemen … [Click Below for Full Description]

Moritz, Karl Philipp.
Braunschweig, Schulbuchhandlung, 1788. Außerordentlich seltene erste Ausgabe von Moritz' ästhetischem Hauptwerk, aus Unterhaltungen mit Goethe in Rom hervorgegangen, "welche Moritz nach seiner Art benutzt und gebildet" (Goethe, Italienische Reise). Später schreibt Goethe in einem Brief an Riemer: "Wo nicht auf's Publicum selbst Einfluß gehabt, doch das Fundament unsrer nachher mehr entwickelten Denkart geblieben ist". Die auch von Herders Ideen beeinflusste und auf bestimmte ästhetische Positionen der deutschen Klassik vorausweisende Schrift enthält die aufschlussreiche Forderung: "Die Menschengattung aber muss sich heben, weil sie den Endzweck ihres Daseyns nicht mehr ausser sich, sondern in sich hat; und also auch durch die Entwicklung aller in ihr schlummernden Kräfte, bis zur Empfindung und Hervorbringung des Schönen in sich selber vollenden muss Der Horizont der thätigen Kraft muss bei dem bildenden Genie so weit wie die Natur selbst seyn" (S. 43 f.). Newald weist auf die große Bedeutung dieser spekulativen Abhandlung hin, die man erst am Ende des 19. Jahrhunderts zu würdigen begann, die aber im vollen Maße bis heute nicht gewürdigt sei. "Weil der Verleger wohl den größten Teil der Auflage hatte makulieren lassen, war die Schrift schon damals ganz aus dem Buchhandel verschwunden" (Kippenberg). Seit über 50 Jahren nur ein weiteres Exemplar im Handel nachweisbar. Kriegsverlust der Berliner Staatsbibliothek. – Titel mit hübschem altem Stempel und handschriftl.

George Hepplewhite
First edition. Folio (15" x 10"). George Hepplewhite died in 1786 as the plates were being engraved and the book was published by his widow, Alice. The book was very popular, running to three editions within the decade after Hepplewhite's death. This is perhaps the rarest of the three principle 18th century pattern books, Chippendale's and Sheraton's being more well known. This copy was found in poor condition and repaired and restored in 1968 by St. Michael's Abbey, Hants, England. Beautifully rebound in full brown calf with raised bands. The first 24 pages and the last three pages of this copy did not survive and were replaced with facsimiles from another copy of this work. There is some water staining to the first few extant pages and most pages have some foxing. The pages have not been trimmed. What appears to be the original owner's signature (John M. Creight) has survived and is included. London: I. and J. Taylor, 1788. [Attributes: First Edition]

Knox, Henry
New York: Jan. 13, 1788. 2pp. plus integral address leaf. 4to. Retained copy, entirely in a secretarial hand, of a letter from Secretary of War Henry Knox to Mary McNeill, the widow of a former soldier. Hector McNeill (1728-1785) was raised to the rank of captain in the Continental Navy in 1776. His command of the frigate Boston was relieved in 1778, however, as he had difficulty in getting along with his fellow officers and his superior, Captain John Manley. He and Manley were both court-martialed in 1778, but while Manley was acquitted, McNeill was dismissed from the service. Later he was involved with several Massachusetts privateers and was lost at sea in 1785. A considerable correspondence exists between Henry Knox and the Widow McNeill, who was left without resources after her husband's death. Mrs. McNeill had prepared a report on sums due to her husband, but Knox had determined that Captain McNeill had overcharged the Treasury and credited to himself more than he ought, a total of $2091.54. "Accordingly yesterday I took out the certificate for the above sum...which bears an interest annually of better than 120 dollars, for 10 years past which is upwards of 1200 dollars interest." Not finding anyone to carry this certificate personally to her, he enclosed it "in a letter of this tenor and date to my friend General Henry Jackson who will wait upon you with it, and receive from you duplicate receipts for the sum. I most sincerely with that its present value was equal to the sum expressed, or that I could point out any mode to enhance its worth - but alas! it is … [Click Below for Full Description]

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 before she l … [Click Below for Full Description]

George Eunson
Newcastle upon Tyne: Printed for the Author, 1788 A good copy of the scarce 1st edition. Written as a protest - the author's preface states 'the design of publishing....is rather to make more clearly known the hardships and unconstitutional government of this Burgh'. Eunson has an interesting history: some accounts state that he was a smuggler who turned 'gamekeeper' being made an Officer of Excise by an influential patron. His zeal made him enemies who then had him arrested and locked up. The book is said to be his revenge and he does not hold back - accusing the nobility of rigging elections in favour of their cronies; and that the legal profession were involved in smuggling. This copy is in a half leather binding with raised bands and title label to spine and marbled boards. It is in good clean condition with some wear to the front spine joint and general rubbing and wear to corners and edges. There is the bookplate of John Davie Manson Robertson, a noted Orcadian, to the front pastedown and a pencilled signature to the fep. Contents: blank; title page; dedication; general preface 4pp; and text to p127 - which includes some poetry (eg 'Petty Tyrants, or Grinders of the Poor'); finis. The title page has some paper repair; there are a couple of small repaired edge tears at pp 30 and 82; the corner tip of p99 is missing; there is small loss to the bottom of p109; and light worming notice from p102 with very slight loss of text.

Jan Christaan Sepp, Amsterdam, 1788. Hand colored illustrated titles to each volume, 70 hand coloured engraved plates (29 Cicaden and 41 Wantzen), illustrating 471 figures. Text in Dutch and French. The first volume with general title page preceding the sectional one. Contemporary marbled calf, covers with wide borders in gilt, flat spines tooled in gilt, marbled endpapers, gilt edges, expert repairs to joints Beautifully illustrated and colored work on insects from the order Hemiptera, including cicadas: complete with both parts. Published in twelve parts, this work was "the first serious scientific work on these groups of insects" (Landwehr). The work describes the cicadidae and insects of the order heteroptera of all parts of the world, but with many from the Dutch colonies of Surinam, the Cape of Good Hope and the Coromandel coast. Stoll worked with Pieter Cramer on his monumental work on butterflies, becoming its principal author after Cramer's death. Contemporary records describe him as being a clerk in the Admiralty of Amsterdam, but was evidently well regarded as an amateur entomologist and collector of specimens. The beautiful work is published by Jan Christiaan Sepp, the most acclaimed Dutch publisher of colored natural history books of the 18th century.

Original watercolor created for the manuscript folio The Felidae. Cat Kind 19th Century Watercolor over graphite Each numbered and annotated in pencil Framed size: 15 measuring 27" x 24"; 2 measuring 24" x 27" Provenance: H. Bradley Martin The expansion of trade and growing exploration of the world, during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, brought about a growing interest in the exotic with wild animals being captured and returned to Europe as both objects of curiosity and scientific specimens. In Britain, the eminent doctor William Hunter led the way in the study of these animals, acquiring not only living specimens but also assembling a considerable collection of paintings. The field was also aided by the foundation of the Linnaean Society in 1788, named after the creator of the now universal system of nomenclature for plants and animals. This institution expressly encouraged ‘the cultivation of the Science of Natural History in all its branches.’ Interest extended beyond scientific study to the general public at large and a menagerie was established at Exeter Change in the Strand by Pidock, a trader in wild animals. This proved to be exceptionally popular with the London public and artists frequently used it as a source for their paintings and drawings. Publications also fed the public interest in the exotic and perhaps Samuel Howitt’s Oriental Field Sports, is the finest example of this kind. Howitt, along with Charles Hamilton Smith, contributed to the stunning images of cats to be found in the manuscript Felidae.
