(and only) ed., 8vo., xxxiii + (i) + 434pp. + (1 - advert), 2 folding tables, 7 plates, one double-page, some spotting, particularly to title, recently rebound in attractive half-calf, spine gilt in compartments. London, for T.Cadell, 1788. Berkenhout (1730?-1791) was born in Leeds, Yorkshire, of Dutch parents. He studied medicine at Edinburgh and Leyden after serving for a while in the Prussian army. Later, after qualifying, he was sent by the government, as one of a group of commissioners, to America, but they were not allowed to proceed beyond New York. However, Berkenhout defied the ban and reached Philadelphia where, for a short time, he was imprisoned. He was the author of a range of works in medicine, literature, natural history and politics. The present work is ?an extensive textbook of chemistry utilizing the Phlogiston theory. The author gives a short list of the beliefs of the antiphlogistians and dismisses their principles with ?It was born in France, and there let it die.? (Cole) [Attributes: Hard Cover]

A fine and attractive set of the "pocket" edition of Hamilton's vases, with unusually wide margins. Hamilton's collection of ancient vases, assembled by him after his appointment to the court of Naples in 1764, was first illustrated, described, and published between 1776 and 1777. Pierre Francois Hugues, an authority on ancient art, had introduced Hamilton to the Porcinari family, the owners of a large collection of ancient classical vases which Hamilton bought and enlarged, and then sold to the British Museum in 1772. Before their shipment of England, all the objects were listed, drawn and described under the supervision of the brilliant but unscrupulous "baron". The work was finely illustrated with hand-colored engraved plates whose 'influence on neo-classical design and taste was to be profound (Dictionary of Art).

Contemporary sheep newly rebacked, single pin-hole worm trace in the lower corner of the first 29 leaves, the same in the upper corner of the last 94 leaves, the final few leaves with a fine trace of worming in the fore-edge margin, occasional foxing, overall a very good copy, the worming quite unobtrusive. *With this ink inscription on the front paste-down - 'The Gift of Mrs. Wilkinson of Plas Grono to Mary Peters of Minera July Anno Domini 1804'. The donor was most likely the wife of JOHN WILKINSON (1728 - 1808), a pioneer of the modern, mechanized iron trade. He was born at Clifton, Cumbria, in 1728, educated at the Dissenting Academy of Caleb Rotherham at Kendal and worked with his father Isaac, in the family iron-works, from c.1748. He subsequently moved to the Midlands and established his own iron-works. In 1753 his father took a lease of the Bersham, Wrexham, furnace and with his wife and younger children took residence at Plas Grono, on the Erthig estate. John Wilkinson returned to the family enterprise and went to live in Wrexham. Using ironstone from Llwyn Einion and coal from Ponciau , the firm made all manner of iron goods. Isaac failed (c. 1761), and with John at the head of the new firm, New Bersham Co., became the leading manufacturer of ordnance for the Government [See National Library of Wales, Dictionary of Biography]. The recipient, Mary Peters, is not known, but Minera, near Mold, was the site of lead-mining activity - John Wilkinson … [Click Below for Full Description]

(Calcutta, Printed and sold by Manuel Cantopher, and sold at London by P. Elmsly, 1788). 4to. Extracted and bound in a recent vey nice marbled dark blue paper-binding w. matching gilt burgundy leather title-label to front board. A very nice and clean copy. Pp. 415-431 The seminal first edition of this groundbreaking paper which determined the connection between the Indo-European languages and thereby founded comparative philology and Indo-European studies. "This slim paper read to the Bengal Asiatic Society and published in its "Transaction" marks a turning-point in the history of linguistics and signaled the birth of comparative philology." (PMM 235).Sir William Jones (1746-1794) was an English philologist and judge who was stationed in India in 1780. He is the founder of the Asiatic Society and now famous as the discoverer and propounder of the existence of a relationship between the Indo-European languages. As he was stationed in India, he set out to master the ancient Sanskrit language, among other things in order to study native Indian law codes, which were written in this language. Due to his excellent language skills and his already perfect mastering of Greek and Latin, Jones discovered a shocking similarity between the languages in a huge number of words. By this discovery of the connection between Latin, Greek and Sanskrit, Jones had, without realizing it initially, discovered what was to be known as proto-Indo-European, -the lost mother tongue of almost all European, Indian and Russian languages as well as some Middle Eastern ones. And thus, with this breakthrough … [Click Below for Full Description]

A Londres, et se trouve à Lyon, chez R. Regnault, 1788. In-8 broché, couverture muette, non rogné, (ft+frt+t+544pp). Portrait gravé par Duplessi. Edition de l’année de l’originale.Financier et homme politique originaire de Genève, Necker se fit d’abord connaître par des écrits politiques et économiques, où, en particulier, il attaquait la politique de Turgot. Il fut nommé directeur du trésor puis des finances. C’est lui qui imposa la création d’assemblées provinciales associant les notables à l’administration de province, mais ce fut un véritable échec. Il tenta de se justifier dans ses écrits mais dut démissionner. Louis XVI le rappela en août 1788. Très populaire mais détesté de la cour il n’apprécia pas réellement les évènements qui se déclenchaient et qu’il avait largement favorisé en donnant au tiers état un nombre de députés équivalent aux 2 autres corps. Il démissionna et se retira à Coppet en 1790 où il publia divers ouvrages. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

These "Romances" comprise eight sentimental rhymed ballads on such themes as unhappy love, happy love, and the innocence of childhood. The majority are original creations of the author, but "The Hermit" is translated from the English of Goldsmith, while a Scottish origin is claimed for the first poem, which evokes the lament of a young mother abandoned by her lover. The author, Arnaud Berquin (1749-91), was best known for his children's books, including the popular "L'ami des Enfants," and a translation of the often printed English favorite, "Sandford and Merton."

FOURCROY, [Antoine François] de, and [Jean Jacques] DELAPORTE.
FIRST EDITION. At the behest of the Faculty of Medicine, and "with the collaboration of Delaporte (of the Royal Society of Medicine) Fourcroy made very detailed analyses of the waters of Enghien, in the valley of Montmorency, and a large quantity was brought to Paris for further study. A full account of these waters was read by Fourcroy at ten successive meetings of the society and subsequently published in the present book... A balneological and analytical chemical classic, which is 'entirely chemical in content' (Duveen)" (Neville). As a result of this analysis the waters were recommended for various ailments, and Enghien developed into a fashionable resort.The book includes two further studies, on the waters of Saint-Germain-en-Laye (by Chappon), and Vaugirard.Cole 486. Duveen p. 225. Neville I, p. 474. Smeaton, Fourcroy, pp. 21-22 and 115-117 for a full account of this highly detailed book; bibliography no. 30.

(5), de VIII à XX, 386pp. Paris, Cuchet, 1788, in-8, (5), de VIII à XX, 386pp, demi-basane postérieure à petits coins, dos lisse portant une pièce de titre (dos frotté), Première édition de ce traité qui applique la nouvelle chimie française à l'hydrologie. Notamment, les auteurs donnent, après l'introduction, un tableau de synonymes des anciens et nouveaux termes de chimie, la nouvelle nomenclature chimique de l'Académie des Sciences venant de paraitre entre la rédaction et la publication du présent livre sur les eaux d'Enghien. La nature sulfureuse des eaux d'Enghien fut reconnue en 1766 par l'Abbé Cotte, puis cette nouvelle source fut étudiée par des pharmaciens et médecins, mais non des chimistes. Le présent volume forme donc un ensemble neuf de d'observations et d'analyses, Fourcroy étant, avec Lavoisier, un des principal contributeur au renouveau de la chimie française des années 1780. Comme les auteurs l'indiquent en introduction, "Nous avions à fixer d'une manière plus précise l'action des différents réactifs sur une eau chargée de gaz hépatique. Aucun chimiste ne nous avait précédés dans cette sorte de recherche [.]". Les auteurs expérimentations furent l'usage des réactifs (colorants, acides, sels, substances métalliques, chaux métalliques, savon, spiritueux, etc.), la distillation, l'évaporation et analyse des résidus. En fin de volume, on trouve l'analyse des eaux de Saint-Germain-en-Laye et l'eau de Vaugirard. Intérieur légèrement piqûé. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Printed and Sold by J Phillips,London,1788.The Second Edition Revised and Considerably Enlarged. 8vo.pp.xxiv + 167 + 1 page cat.Bound in half calf, raised bands,marbled boards.Very Good. In 1785 Cambridge University held an essay competition with the title: "Is it rights to make men slaves against their wills?" Clarkson had not considered the matter before but after carrying out considerable research on the subject submitted his essay. Clarkson won first prize and was asked to read his essay to the University Senate. On his way home to London he had a spiritual experience. He later described how he had "a direct revelation from God ordering me to devote my life to abolishing the trade."Clarkson contacted Granville Sharp , who had already started a campaign to end the slave-trade. In 1787 Clarkson and Sharp formed the Society for the Abolition of the Slave Trade . Of the twelve members on the committee, nine were Quakers. Influential figures such as John Wesley and Josiah Wedgwood gave their support to the campaign. Later they persuaded William Wilberforce the MP for Hull , to be their spokesman in the House of Commons . Thomas Clarkson was given the responsibility of collecting information to support the abolition of the slave trade. This included interviewing 20,000 sailors and obtaining equipment used on the slave-ships such as iron handcuffs, leg-shackles, thumb screws, instruments for forcing open slave's jaws and branding irons. In 1787 he published his pamphlet, A Summary View of the Slave Trade and of the Probable Consequences of Its Abolition. Clarkson was a brillia … [Click Below for Full Description]

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.

BAR, Jacques Charles.
(M., Sancha, 1788 y años siguientes), 40,5 x 25,5 cm., cartoné moderno, 130 hojas + 192 láminas iluminadas a mano representando la historia y hábitos de 96 órdenes. (Una de las obras más espléndidas y raras salidas de la imprenta de Sancha. La edición original francesa fue emprendida por Bar en 1778. Sancha empezó a publicar la versión española en 1788 en cuadernos de 6 láminas y quedó sin terminar. Según Cotarelo, a la muerte de Sancha llevaba entregados al público unos 20 cuadernos y posteriormente su hijo tiró algunos más. Ningún bibliógrafo sabe cuantas láminas llegaron a imprimirse. Así, por ejemplo, en El Grabado en España se afirma "Parece que se publicaron únicamente 188 estampas". El Catálogo Colectivo solo registra 4 ejemplares pero existe uno más en la Academia de la Historia que utilizó Rodríguez Moñino para su bibliografía de Sancha. Todos estos ejemplares tienen diferente número de láminas. El que mas tiene es el de la Biblioteca Episcopal del Seminario de Barcelona con 203 láminas, el de la Academia de la Historia 188, el de la Biblioteca Lázaro Galdiano 186 y el de la Biblioteca de Navarra sólo 94. Creemos que ninguno de estos ejemplares conservan la portada como ocurre también en el que anunciamos. Nuestro ejemplar, a diferencia de los otros conocidos, todas las láminas están coloreadas a mano de época y conserva todos los márgenes). ÓRDENES MILITARES RELIGIOSAS GRABADOS

JEFFERSON, Thomas (1743-1826)
Philadelphia: printed and sold by Prichard and Hall, 1788. 8vo. (7 5/8 x 4 1/2 inches). [4], 244 pp., plus folding table. Publisher's ads in rear. Expertly bound to style in half tree sheep over contemporary marbled paper covered boards, flat spine divided into six compartments with a gilt roll tool, red/brown morocco lettering piece in the second compartment. Housed in a brown morocco backed box. The first American edition of Jefferson's famous work. This is the only book-length work by Jefferson to be published in his lifetime, and has been called "one of America's first permanent literary and intellectual landmarks." Jefferson's greatest work was largely written in 1781 and first published in Paris, in French, in 1785. Written in the form of answers to questions about Virginia, the book supplies a description of the geography, with an abundance of supporting material and unusual information. As J.M. Edelstein notes: "Jefferson wrote about things which interested him deeply and about which he knew a great deal; the Notes, therefore, throws a fascinating light on his tastes, curiosities, and political and social opinions." The story of the creation of this book and its publishing history is an interesting one and is described in full by Millicent Sowerby in her catalogue of Jefferson's library, where it occupies some thirty pages in small type. Often reprinted, the present edition is particularly desirable being the first to be published in America. This copy without foxing and with folding table and the ad leaf in the rear, both often lacking. Cf. Adam … [Click Below for Full Description]

Contemporary half calf, gilt lettered spines in 6 compartments, marbled sides, upper edges gilt. A fine copy, of a very rare work, describing the marine fauna of Denmark and Norway. This beautifully produced work is one of the rarest zoological publications. Müller complains that no more than 25 copies had been sold in Denmark, not a single copy in Norway, two copies in Italy, 2 copies in England and 2 in France. "For the rest of his life he was able to live a financially carefree existence, having in May 1773 married the widow of a rich Norwegian merchant, Anna Carlsen, nee Paludan. Through his marriage Müller formed close ties with Norway, his 'new fatherland' as he occasionally called that country. During the remainder of his life he often spent the summer on his estate at Drobak, on Oslo Fiord, and he traveled a good deal about Norway, inland and along the coasts, studying and collecting material for his scientific work" (Anker). Müller was one of the first to use a dredge to collect specimens on a scale never used before. "Müller must therefore be regarded as one of the real pioneers in marine biology "(Anker). Müller died after the first two volumes had been published, the third volume was by P.C. Abildgaard and the concluding volume by P.C. Abildgaard, J.S. Holten, M. Vahl and J.Rathke.

A very good set, boards rubbed, spines lighlty sunned, boards on final volume with repaired paper splits. 8vo. One of only 250 copies printed. "...elle est assez recherchée," Brunet. Didbin wrote "The popularity of Brunck's edition was very great; and was exceeded by no work to which that celebrated name was attached. But the dearness of the quarto edition prevented many from purchasing it. Brunck, therefore, brought out an octavo edition, in three vols. 1786-8: containing the Scholia and indexes, fully as complete as the quarto. In the year 1789 [this edition date 1788] he published another octavo edition, in three vols., very handsomely printed, of which only 250 copies were struck off, at his own expense. In this latter edition, the Scholia of Triclinius, and other recent scholia, are omitted, and some fresh notes are added," (Rare & Valuable Editions of Greek and Latin Classics, 4th ed.,Vol. 2, p.415). Richard Francis Frederick Brunck (1729-1803), a celebrated Greek scholar and critic, had such admiration of the authors he edited that he conceived their writings to have been originally immaculate, and therefore attributed to the copyists whatever errors he discovered. Scarce. OCLC shows only five complete sets: BL, BN France, Nat. Lib. Denmark, Brown, Univ. Nebraska; also one in the Nat. Lib. of Greece. Brunet V: 449.
