        The Natural History and Antiquities of Selborne,

      London: by T. Bensley; for B. White and Son,, 1789. in the County of Southampton: with Engravings, and an Appendix. Quarto. Original marbled boards, paper spine and spine label, edges untrimmed. Housed in a brown full morocco book-form drop-down box and slipcase by Mounteney. 7 engraved plates, 2 folding, one of which is a panoramic view of Selbourne as frontispiece. The Natural History and The Antiquities each have their own section-title with an engraved vignette. Complete with appendices in Latin, an index and list of errata. With the usual misprints: p. 292 misnumbered 262, sig. Ppp 2 misassigned Pp2, and pp. 441?-2 omitted from pagination sequence but text continuous. Armorial bookplates of W. H. Mullens (early 20th century), Harold Greenhill (1941) to front pastedown, H. Bradley Martin bookplate to chemise. Near-contemporary ownership inscriptions to front free endpaper and title page. Spine and board edges quite rubbed, with the title label mostly illegible, discrete repair to joints, light spotting to a few end leaves, a few small perforations to first blank, faint damp-stain to frontis at bottom edge, otherwise notably clean and fresh within, only lightly cockled, a remarkably nice copy in the original boards, very good condition overall. First edition of this classic text of both English natural history and literature, "the first book which raised natural history into the region of literature" (Encyclopaedia Britannica), uncommon in contemporary binding. The book is arranged into three sequences of letters ?- those addressed to Pennant and to Barrington forming the natural history portion of the volume, the remainder forming an account of parish antiquities. This lovely copy, preserved in the original boards, has a superb provenance history - bearing the ownership inscription first of the author's nephew Thomas Holt White (1763?-1841), dated 1804, who was the eldest son of Gilbert's younger brother the noted naturalist and literary critic also called Thomas Holt White (1724?-1797). Gilbert White, without children himself, took much care and interest in his nephews, and Rashleigh Holt-White, Gilbert's great-grand-nephew, stated in his biography (John Murray, 1901) of the naturalist that his nephew Thomas "knew him very well". Rashleigh also notes that nephew Thomas was in fact originally intended by Gilbert to be bequeathed the house at Selborne, although this was ultimately left to brother Benjamin. It should be noted that White's Natural History and Antiquities of Selborne was in some ways a family project, produced and proliferated with fraternal support around a shared interest in naturalism and in Selborne house - brother Benjamin White (c.1725-1794) publishing the book, and brother Thomas Holt reviewing it in the Gentleman's Magazine. The copy also has the ownership inscription of an "Anna White, 20 February 1822", and on the title page the ownership inscription "Edward Cotsford, to Miss M. Rundell", untraced. Proceeding into the 20th century, this copy also bears the armorial bookplate of W. H. Mullens, followed by the 1941 illustrated bookplate of Chicago collector Harold Greenhill (1893-1968 - member of the Caxton Club, whose books are found at Princeton University and the Newberry Library), finally finding its most illustrious destination in the collection of H. Bradley Martin, with his bookplate to the chemise. A superlative copy in numerous respects.

        Corona Gótica y asutriaca dividida en quatro partes

      Madrid, Benito Cano 1789 - 8º menor (14,5 x 9,8 cm.) 7 tomos. Cabeceras grabadas al cobre. Pasta española de época, lomos lisos con hilos dorados y doble tejuelo, cortes tintados. Ejemplar muy limpio y en perfecto estado. La Corona Gótica es, junto con la Idea de un príncipe político cristiano, la obra más extensa del diplomático español Diego de Saavedra Faxardo. Consta de treinta capítulos, dedicados cada uno de ellos a uno o varios de los reyes godos, desde Alarico –que no pisaría suelo hispano- hasta Don Rodrigo. Se trata de una historia profusamente anotada con las citas en latín de los historiadores y las fuentes utilizadas, entre las que ocupan un lugar muy destacado las actas de algunos concilios celebrados en España. El sentido de la historia en nuestro siglo barroco merece alguna atención. En el prólogo de la obra, Saavedra Fajardo advierte que va a contar la historia hasta la pérdida de España porque había visto publicados algunos libros de “pretensos derechos” sobre casi todas las provincias de Europa, y era necesario que una historia mostrase los derechos legítimos en que se había fundado el reino y la monarquía de España, y los que tenía a diversas provincias. Si en las Empresas había aportado “la parte teórica de la razón de estado”, con la Corona Gótica pretendía ofrecer la práctica para aprender con ella de las experiencias y acciones de los que vivieron antes. Además, puesto que la verdad difícilmente se halla en los que viven –escribe Saavedra– va a señalar “en lo que fue lo que ahora es. . la Corona Gótica de Saavedra está cuajada de máximas o ideas que desde su mismo origen iban referidas al mundo de la práctica, de lo que realmente acontecía, y cuya finalidad principal consistía en intervenir en él para dominar los hechos. Lo que de ellas cabía esperar no era que proporcionaran la verdad última de las cosas, sino que reglamentaran una conducta adecuada, que en relación a los hechos garantizasen su conveniencia.” [La Corona Gótica de Saavedra Fajardo, Belén Rosa de Gea]. Palau, 283502 [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        A journey through the Crimea to Constantinople. In a series of letters from the right honourable Elizabeth Lady Craven, to his serene highness the Margrave of Brandenbourg, Anspach, and Bareith. Written in the year M DCC LXXXVI

      G. G. J. and J. Robinson, London 1789 - 4to. [viii], 327, [1] pp With folding frontispiece map and 6 plates (1 folding). Complete, including half title and directions to the binder on the final page. Contemporary marbled boards, rebacked, with new morocco spine label and endpapers, marbled edges; plates contain some toning and foxing with offsetting, otherwise a very attractive, clean copy First edition. As though separating from your husband weren’t bad enough in the late nineteenth century, reports of numerous infidelities with high ranking men would certainly place you at the center of gossip and scandal. Such was the case of Lady Craven, whose indiscretions, including a ‘criminal intercourse’ with the French Ambassador in London, made her a somewhat notorious character in European high society. After separating from Lord Craven in 1783, Elizabeth left her native England and traveled extensively in France, Italy, Vienna, Poland, Russia, Ukraine, Greece, Turkey, and points in-between. The present book is an account of these travels, published at the suggestion of her friend and admirer, Horace Walpole, in 1789. "This is her most important work, and it exploits to the full the gossipy and self-vindicating scope of first-person travelogue. She describes manners, customs, and landscapes, pronounces Lady Mary Wortley Montagu's favourable account of Turkey a forgery, and constructs a self-image of redoubtable British vigour as well as devoted and injured motherhood" (ODNB). As was common in travelogues of this time period, the book is composed of a series of letters. The original recipient of these missives was the Margrave of Brandenburg-Ansbach-Bayreuth (Christian Frederick Charles Alexander), a man she affectionately calls "brother" in the preface. A brother he was not; the couple married in late 1791, mere weeks after the death of Elizabeth’s estranged husband. Having sold his principality to the Emperor of Prussia for a tidy sum, the Margrave and Margravine Anspach lived comfortably in England, though due to their scandalous relationship they were not received in the court of George III. Despite raised eyebrows surrounding her personal life, the Magravine’s travelogue proved successful and saw a second extended edition published in 1814.Craven (1750-1828) wrote numerous satirical plays in addition to her famous travelogue. Both talented and beautiful, she had her portrait painted many times by notable artists of the day, including Romney, Gainsborough, and Reynolds. After the Margrave’s death, Craven retired to Naples and produced one final work, a frank and somewhat shocking memoir published in 1826. [Attributes: First Edition]

        A System of the Law of Marine Insurances: With Three Chapters on Bottomry; on Insurances of Lives; and on Insurances against Fire

      Joseph Crukshank, Philadelphia, (PA) 1789 - First American edition. 8vo. xvi, (8) xliv, 530, (45) pp. Francis Hopkinson's copy, with his ownership signature at the head of the title page and his armorial bookplate on the front pastedown; Hopkinson (1737-1791), lawyer, judge, merchant, author, musician, and Signer of the Declaration of Independence, was born in Philadelphia and was the first to earn a diploma at the College of Philadelphia, in 1757. After reading law and spending a year in England, he published a good bit of music and poetry in the 1760s; by late 1773 he had moved to Bordentown, New Jersey, where he took up the law again and rose rapidly, being elected to the Continental Congress in 1776 and signing the Declaration of Independence with other members in July. During the war he held important administrative offices and saw his house in Bordentown plundered by the British. "Though he was not preeminent in any one field the bulk of his attainments is sufficient to make his place in American history secure" (DAB). First published in London, 1787, Park's was the first legal work on insurance written by an English lawyer and the first book on the subject to appear in America. Holdsworth called it "the best text-book upon the law of insurance." A work of great authority, it went through numerous English and American editions and remained the standard text until the middle of the nineteenth century. Evans 22048. Holdsworth "History of English Law" XII, 390. Cohen "Bibliography of Early American Law" 7071. Hinges a little cracked, joints just starting to crack at ends, but a sound copy with an appealing association, the copy of a Signer of the Declaration of Independence who spent some ten years as a judge on various American admiralty courts. Contemporary calf, (rubbed, a little chipping at head of spine, corners bumped), gilt rules and leather label on spine. (#6450) [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        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. .

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.

Legature in mz.pelle con titoli in oro al dorso e piatti marmorizzati. Frontespizi decorati con incisione arcadica. Ritratto dell'Autore inciso in ovale all'antiporta del primo volume. Opera adorna di venti tavole decorative incise fuori testo, collazionate all'inizio di ciascuno dei venti canti che compongono l'Opera. Le carte del testo, non le tavole, sono su carta azzurrina. Il primo volume è preceduto dalla "Dedicazione" dell'Autore e da un "Elogio del Cav. Marino scritto dall'Editore". In fine al quarto volume sono riportati gli "Opuscoli del Signor Cav. Marino: La notte; La Pastorella; Lidia abbandonata; Amore incostante; Trastulli estivi; La lontananza; La bella vedova; Duello amoroso". "L'Adone" costituisce lo sfogo sfarzoso e orgiastico di una libera, varia e intemperante immaginazione, di tutto curiosa e a tutto, in fondo, indifferente: anche alla voluttà, nella quale parve ad alcuno di ravvisare il nucleo centrale dell'Opera" (L.Vigliani).

        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.
