        A General History of Music, from the Earliest Ages to the Present Period

      London: Printed for the author and sold by Payne and Son, 1789. Second Edition. Half-Leather. Very Good. 4 volumes. xviii, 501; 597; xi, 622; 688 p. 9 plates plus extensive examples of notation. Rebound. Bookplate and discreet library markings. Mild to moderate foxing. A composer and musician, Burney started to think about writing this history of music while an organist in Norfolk. Honoured by Oxford University in 1769, his many successes did not distract from this main writing goal. The first volume, published in 1776, was immediately well received. His biggest successes may have been his children, however; his eldest daughter was a harpsichord child prodigy, one son became a distinguished officer in the Royal Navy, another son was a well-known clergyman, and a daughter became the famous author Madame D'Arblay.

        A Catalogue of the Books belonging to the Library Company of Philadelphia; to which is prefixed, a Short Account of the Institution, with the Charter, Laws and Regulations

      xl, 406 pp., one leaf of errata. 8vo, mid-19th-cent. half-morocco & marbled boards (two ink stains to upper cover), spine gilt. Philadelphia: Z. Poulson, 1789. The first of the modern catalogues describing the book collections of the Library Company of Philadelphia. Founded in 1731 by Benjamin Franklin, it was the first subscription library established in North America. From the Revolutionary War to 1800, when the national government was in Philadelphia, the Library Company also served as the Library of Congress. Until the 1850s it was the largest public library in America. The earliest surviving catalogue of the collection was issued in 1741. That catalogue and the subsequent pre-Revolutionary War catalogues, issued in 1757, 1764, and 1770, were all arranged in an extremely inconvenient method, preventing readers from identifying books they wanted. When the printer and newspaper publisher Zachariah Poulson, Jr. became the librarian in 1785, he compiled and printed the present indexed catalogue. The arrangement of this catalogue was greatly influenced by the Enlightenment. We learn from the "Advertisement" that "in conformity to the general delineation of human science, laid down by Bacon, and afterwards illustrated and enlarged by D'Alembert, the books have been divided into three classes, corresponding with the three great divisions of the mental faculties -- Memory, Reason and Imagination." This arrangement was greatly facilitated by an excellent author index at the end. Fine copy. Early signature of "Th. Muendemann (?)." ❧ Winans 131. .

        Zoho tosho [Kashira Gaki] Kimmozui taisei [trans.: An Illustrated Encyclopedia]

      Very numerous full-page woodcut illus. in the text. 270 folding leaves. 21 vols. bound in ten. 8vo, orig. blue wrappers (somewhat worn & rubbed), orig. block printed title labels on upper covers (rubbed & frayed), new stitching. Kyoto: 1789. The fullest of many editions, each enlarged with additional woodcuts, of this important and richly illustrated encyclopedia. The first edition appeared in 1666. The well-known illustrator Shimokobe Shusui (d. 1797 or 98), has furnished the hundreds of handsome full-page illustrations. He was "one of the few Kyoto artists who worked in the Ukiyo-ye manner. He studied first with a teacher of the Kano school and then went to Yedo, where he was a contemporary with Shunsho in Shunsui's studio. A number of interesting illustrated books were left by him."-Brown, Block Printing & Book Illustration in Japan, p. 162-(and listing the present work). This encyclopedia covers astronomy, geography, architecture, occupations of every sort and level, anatomy, costumes, valuable art objects, tools, musical instruments, fireworks, toys, arms and armor, various kinds of boats and carriages, agricultural tools, weaving, basketry, mills, carpenters' tools, hydraulic machinery, fishing equipment, clocks, household furniture, cosmetics, cooking utensils, dinner ware, decorative ceramics, tea ceremony utensils, weighing scales, knife sharpeners, cleaning utensils, armillary spheres, musical instruments, archery, games (including go), street entertainers, Buddhist ceremonial ornaments, furniture for temples, coffins, the animal world (including imaginary animals and endless species of fish), rice and grains and their finished products, vegetables and fruits, trees, flowers and plants, philosophers, historical figures in Japan and China, famous artists and poets, and deities. Nakamura (1629-1702), was a scholar of Confucianism and therefore was able to write such a broad-ranged encyclopedia. He was an authority in astronomy, surveying, and music theory. Minor worming here and there but a very good set. Rare when complete. .

        An Essay to Direct and Extend the Inquiries of Patriotic Travellers; with further observations on the means of preserving the life, health, & property of the Unexperienced

      London: Printed for the Author, and Sold By Mr. Robinson, Mr Debrett, Mr Payne..., 1789. [2], xxviii, 526. [2], vi, [2], ii, 283pp. Engraved frontispiece to Vol I, both titles engraved, five folding tables. Contemporary sheep, gilt, contrasting red morocco lettering pieces. Splitting to now strengthened joints. Chipping to head and foot of each spine, bumping to corners. Internally immaculate. A fascinatingly unusual late eighteenth century manual for intellectual European travel, composed by the Moravian philanthropist and man of letters Count Leopold von Berchtold (1759-1809), who was described by Southey in a letter to Cottle (c.1796) as 'one of those rare characters who spend their lives in doing good, it is his custom in every country he visits to publish books in its language on some subject of practical utility - these he gave away'. Consisting of two distinct parts, the first volume outlines a general methodology for the inquisitve traveller before launching into more than four hundred pages of questions pertinent to understanding the political, social, economic, cultural and educational situation of the nation visited, whilst the second forms an extensive bibliography of English and Continental travel works. The student of the Berchtold methodology was encouraged to note down the responses to the most important of the thousands of questions, ranging in topic from 'Law and Government', 'Philanthrophic Society' and 'State of the Peasanty to 'Navigation upon the Sea' to 'Finance' and 'Navy', in the tables provided. A student of the Berchtold method, if not arrested on suspicion of espionage, would surely have gained a more rounded appreciation of the state of Europe than most Grand Tourists. Rare in commerce, with no copy appearing in the rooms since 1978. ESTC T89033.. First Edition. 8vo.

        Mrs Goodall

      London: Published by R. Sayer & Co. Fleet Street, 1789. Stipple, colour printed a la poupée. Printed on wove paper. Collectors blindstamp of a star in left margin. Collectors mark not identified in Lugt but attributed to the eighteenth century. In excellent condition. This charming colour-printed portrait by Robert Laurie depicts the celebrated actress Charlotte Goodall in the character of Adeline in "The Battle of Hexham". Charlotte Goodall (1766-1830) was the daughter of Stanton, who managed a "sharing company" in Staffordshire. She joined the stage at an early age, and made her first successful début in Bath as Rosalind in "As You Like It." She made a name for herself as a Shakespearean actress in the provinces and quickly joined Kemble's Drury Lane theatre in London. She was primarily a supporting actress, working with such noted thespians as Mrs. Farren and Mrs. Jordan, but she was known for her roles in "breechers parts," playing such noted cross-dressers as Viola in "Twelfth Night," and Adeline in George Coleman's "The Battle of Hexham." It is in this celebrated role, as the cross-dressing Adeline, that Laurie depicts Mrs. Goodall. "The Battle of Hexham" was a three-act musical drama in which an abandoned wife, Adeline, disguises herself as a soldier in order to search for her fugitive husband, Gondibert.

        Autograph Letter Signed, one page folio, Windsor, June 29, 1791

      Ellsworth writes to William Patterson, Governor of New Jersey. In part, "You will have the goodness to excuse my troubling you a moment in behalf of an Ensign Brissel of my vicinity who has served in the Reg't. & has an arrear of pay due to him. He has been once to Philadelphia to receive it & was there informed that it had been paid to a May Heart. Mrs. Heart is now in Connecticut & informs that the money is in the hands of Capt. Beaty at New Brunswick & has drawn an order on him as you will see to pay it. I pray you to let one of your clerks call on Capt. Beaty with the order & if the money is paid upon it to transmit the money to me or keep it till I can draw for it." Written and signed in his large hand "Oliver Ellsworth." Tape repairs across two horizontal margin folds, slight edge tears. Ellsworth's most significant contribution is considered to have been accomplished while serving in the United States Senate, representing Connecticut, by drafting the Judiciary Act of 1789. The court system established then has continued to the present with little change.

        Childish Amusement

      Published by William Dickinson, London 1789 - Colour-printed mezzotint. In good condition with the exception of being trimmed on the plate mark on the lower margin. Laid on to supportive backing sheet. Sheet missing some paper in the margins. Image size: 18 1/4 x 13 3/4 inches. A lovely colour printed impression of this charming print by Dickinson after the famous genre painter George Morland. George Morland was one of the most successful genre painters of his time, creating, during his industrious career, some of England's most cherished paintings. At an early age Morland displayed his artistic genius, he learned to paint at three and exhibited his first work at the Royal Academy at the mere age of ten. Morland was a prodigious painter, producing more than 4000 paintings during the entirety of his career, and sometimes painting two or three works in a day. His beautiful idealistic scenes were a favorite source of inspiration for contemporary engravers, and as many as 250 separate engravings were done of his paintings during his lifetime. Morland is considered a master of genre, his beautiful paintings depict with insightful subtlety the tender side of English country life. In this scene, three children playfully harass a young man who has fallen asleep on a bench in front of an ale house. It's a nicely chosen moment, just prior to the man's waking abruptly and jumping up, while the children flee in every direction. Dawe, G. Morland p. 139.
