Schraembl, Franz Anton (after James Rennell)
Vienna: FA Schraembl , 1788. Scarce German version (southwestern sheet only; only one of the four sheets of the complete map) of James Rennell's landmark copperplate map of Hindoostan. Early hand-colored outlines, VG but for mild chipping uppre edge (trimmed to plate mark; as issued?). Exceptionally large and decorative cartouche. Rennell's "Memoir of a Map of Hindoostan" was seen between 1783 and 1793, and he was a major British geographer of his era (first nearly accurate map of India done for his "A Bengal Atlas"). He was a surveyor in the Royal Navy (he also published on oceanography) and worked with the likes of Alexander Dalrymple and Mungo Park. This is major and historically significant map. There are nice images of the Maldive and Laccadive Islands off the southwestern shores of India. The full image measures 24x28 inches (61x71cm)..

NECKER, Jacques
Londres et se trouve a Paris, 1788. 8vo, pp. (4), 542, (2). Bound with the half-title in contemporary speckled calf, red morocco spine label. A very nice copy. Einaudi 4098, Goldsmith 13751, This was translated by Mary Wollstonecraft and issued in English in London in 1788. (see Windle B1a; Todd 4. ). Necker was the father of Mdm. DeStael and a banker and economist and at one time director of the treasury of the ancien regime in France. In fact, his dismissal and flight to Brussels precipitated riots in the streets and forced his return. However, his moderate policies were outstripped by the radicals and he had to leave France before the French Revolution. This and other religious works shows his strengths as a preacher.

Girardin, Louis Stanislas Cecile Xavier, Comte de
Paris: Paris: Mérigot père, 1788 - Beautiful copy of this classic illustrated account of the famous "English garden" - among the earliest of its kind on the Continent - designed by the Marquis Louis-René de Girardin in honor of Jean-Jacques Rousseau, whose vision of nature inspired Girardin and who would spend the last 6 weeks of his life there until his death and burial in the park at Ermenonville in 1778. Carefully conceived, designed and financed by Girardin with the aid of landscape architecte Jean-Marie Morel, the painter Huber Robert, the Abbé Delille, and Scottish gardeners, the park was inspired along the model of the "jardin anglais", where nature is not subordinated to the gardener but is rather carefully allowed the freedom to develop its own natural charm and beauty. It was the first, or at least the most important, such garden on the Continent. Rousseau, who spent the last 6 weeks of his life there, is buried on the Isle of Poplars in the park's lake; his tomb there was designed by the painter Hubert Rober. The park itself is filled with numerous details evocative of the great philosophe and his works. This account of the park - rare in such condition - was written by Louis-René's son, and is far more frequently seen in the second edition of 1811. This First edition, which appeared ten years after Rousseau's death, is rare; and, with its 25 masterful aquatint plates by Merigot, it is quite beautiful, illustrating the stunning vistas and rustic charms of the park which will forever be associated with the name of Jean-Jacques Rousseau First edition. 8vo.

The objective of the voyages recorded here was to determine whether Spanish ships should continue to use the Straits of Magellan in voyages to the Pacific. Under the command of Captain Antonio de Córdoba y Laso, both expeditions ascertained negative conclusions and afterwards "the Spanish trade routes were exclusively to east coast ports and then overland to Pacific ports" (Hill). A major portion of this work, the first comprehensive study of the Straits of Magellan and Patagonia, was compiled from the journals of D.A. Galiano and A. Belmote, Cordoba's lieutenants. The RELACION... also includes Vargas y Ponce's review of earlier explorations of the area, with descriptions of the region's climate, natural resources, and native peoples. HILL 1756.

London: Printed for G. G. J. and J. Robinson, 1788. Second Edition in English. The author's first book, this item is called by Chambers "one of the most exact and valuable works of [its] kind ever published" (Cox quoting Chambers' "Cyclopaedia: or, an Universal Dictionary of Arts and Sciences"). The Blackmer catalogue says that "Volney's popular and highly-regarded work was the result of three years' travels, a good deal of which time was spent in Cairo. His account has never really been surpassed. Volney went to great lengths in preparation, which included a year devoted to exercise and self-deprivation and three months learning the language required in a convent in the mountains of Lebanon." Volney (1757-1820) was a learned man, a frequent traveller, and an important governmental official who was expelled from America as a suspected spy and who narrowly escaped the guillotine during the French Revolution. The present bindings obviously are not notable for their decoration, but they are wonderful examples of attractively executed flamed calf bindings typical of those making up the bulk of country gentlemen's libraries all over Great Britain. The condition of the present copy is nothing short of extraordinary, very nearly capturing the look and feel of the volumes as they would have appeared on their original shelf.. 216 x 137 mm. (8 1/2 x 5 3/8"). Two volumes. Second Edition in English. VERY FINE CONTEMPORARY FLAMED CALF, flat spines ruled in gilt, red morocco label on each spine. Three engraved folding plates (views and plan) and two engraved folding maps. Front pastedo … [Click Below for Full Description]

Periodical - Irish]
Dublin: Printed by Thomas Walker at Cicero's Head, 1788. 720,[8]pp. plus engraved title and seventy- five engraved plates (including frontis), some folding. Large, thick octavo. Contemporary calf. Bound without wrappers. Year written in ink in an early hand on lower edge, otherwise an excellent copy. The complete volume for the year, comprised of twelve numbers plus the annual appendix. This important Irish monthly was founded in 1771 by James Potts, and Walker assumed control beginning with the March 1774 issue. Publication ceased briefly in April 1785, but resumed again under the new title, WALKER'S HIBERNIAN MAGAZINE, and continued until 1811, the later years under the auspices of Thomas Walker's son, Joseph. During its long run in its different incarnations, THE HIBERNIAN MAGAZINE filled the role of a general Dublin periodical in its coverage of news and politics from Ireland, Britain, Europe and North America, commented on the theatre and new publications, published original poetry and prose, and included marriage, death and business notices. The illustrative material included both serious and satirical subjects, music, and such utilitarian items as patterns for sewing or weaving. Laid in is an a.l.s., "29/7/85," possibly Kingstown, from a collector or bookseller named P. Traymor, to one Geo. Kavanagh, 2pp. on folded octavo lettersheet, extolling the virtues of his set as "the most complete in existence."
