        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.

        Both Sides of the Gutter; or, all Parties Laughing at Each Other

Title a little soiled and traces of a waterstain, but a good copy.

William Paulet Carey (1759-1839) was born in Dublin, where he became an engraver. He was a member of the Society of United Irishmen for a time, but he had a falling-out of some sort and went for a time to America.

        The lost Dauphin; Louis XVII. or Onwarenhiiaki, the Indian Iroquois Chief.Sunnyside, Orpington, Kent, George Allen, 1887. 8vo. With 3 collotype portraits, 1 of Louis XVII, and 2 of Eleazar Williams (1 tinted). Publisher's green textured cloth, front cover with gold-stamped portrait of a young Louis XVII.

      Cf. Sabin 30267; for Williams: DAB XX, pp. 255-256; Dictionary of Wisconsin History (online ed.). Interesting work discussing the theory that the Iroquois chief and Indian missionary Eleazer Williams (ca. 1789-1858) was really the lost Dauphin Louis XVII. It was written by Augusta de Grasse Stevens (1852-1894), novelist and correspondent of various New York newspapers.The Canadian born Eleazar Williams was the son of a St. Regis Mohawk Indian, Thomas Williams, and his wife, Mary Ann Kenewatsenri. He served as a missionary of the Episcopal Church to the Oneida Indians. ''The Indians eventually repudiated his leadership, however, and as early as 1839 Williams began his pretensions that he was the Lost Dauphin of France, Louis XVIII. ... Williams promised his friends many royal favors when his wrong had been righted; but, doomed to defeat, he died in poverty and obscurity at Hogansburg, NY'' (Dictionary of Wisconsin History).Lacking half-title but otherwise in good condition. Hinges weak and endpapers browned. Important work for the history of Wisconsin and the Oneida.

        Opera. [Sancti Brunonis Astensi Episcopi Signiensium et Abbatis Montis Casini Opera in Duos Tomos Distributa aucta et Adnotationibus Illustrata Regiae Celsitudini Caroli Emmanuelis Pedemontii Principis &c. &c.]

      Romae,: Joannis Zempel,, 1789-1791.. Original parchment with gilt lettering on spine. Former copy of St.Joseph's College Mill Hill Library.. Folio.. Brunonis Astensis - (ca. 1040/1050-1123) Initial studies at the Benedictine monastery of S. Perpetua in Asti, where he studied humanities and prepared for the ecclesiastical life; then, he went to study the seven liberal arts at the University of Bologna. He decided to enter the monastery of Monte Cassino but during the trip, he became ill in Siena and the local bishop, Rodolfo, named him canon of the cathedral chapter. Because of his knowledge and piety, he was called to Rome, where he was advisor to four popes. Participated in a Roman synod in 1079; there, he convinced Berengarius of Tours to retract his heresy which denied the real presence of the Lord in the Holy Eucharist; the disputation between the canon and the heretic took place before Pope Gregory VII. Elected bishop of Segni in 1079 (2) by its canons; he accepted after an intervention of Pope Gregory VII. Consecrated in 1080, Campagna of Rome, by Pope Gregory VII. In 1082, returning to Segni from Rome, he was imprisoned by Adolfo di Segni; tradition says that he was miraculously freed. Returned to Rome and there he was imprisoned, together with the pope in mole Adriana (castle of Sant'Angelo). Librarian and chancellor of the Holy Roman Church in 1086. Created cardinal bishop of Segni in a consistory celebrated in 1086 (3). Participated in the papal election of 1088, celebrated in Terracina, in which Pope Urban II was elected. Subscribed papal bulls issued between 1089 and July 20, 1096. In 1095, he accompanied Pope Urban II to the Council of Clermont, in which the First Crusade was called; he went with the pontiff to Avignon Tarasco on September 11, 1095; to Avignon on September 13; to Cluny on October 25; to Clermont on November 18 (he participated in the council celebrated in that city); to Limoges, December 23 to 31; to Charroux, where he participated in the consecration of the abbatial church, on January 10, 1096; to Poitiers on January 22; to Moyenmoutier on March 10; to Tours on March 14 to 20 (he participated in the council celebrated in that city); to Poitiers from March 30 and before April 14; to Nîmes on July 12; and to St.-Gilles on July 20. Did not participate in the papal election of 1099, in which Pope Paschal II was elected. Subscribed papal bulls issued between August 30, 1100 and November 2, 1106. In 1103, he entered the Order of Saint Benedict (Benedictines) at the monastery of Monte Cassino; he was elected abbot in November 1107, keeping his episcopal see. He was sent to France as legate in 1104. In March 1105, during the Lateran Synod, he acted as a judge in a controversy. On September 8 of the same year, he was with the pope in Civita Castellana. He returned to France as legate in 1106. On November 2, 1106, he was in Parma with the pope. On June 4, 1109, Pope Paschal II went to Segni to canonize Bishop Pietro of Anagni, friend of Cardinal Bruno, and most probably, the cardinal was present at the ceremony. He opposed lay investitures of bishops and abbot, even declaring them to be heresy; he criticized Pope Paschal II for granting Emperor Heinrich the privilege of investitures during the pontiff's imprisonment by the emperor April 11, 1111 and demanded that the treaty be annulled. On March 23, 1112, during the Lateran Synod, Pope Paschal II rejected the granting of the privilege of investitures to Emperor Heinrich V; the bishop of Segni was not present at that session of the synod and he continued with his intransgent position; unhappy with the bishop's opposition, the pope asked him resign his abbey and to return to his see of Segni definitively. He participated in the Lateran synod of 1116, but never regained his earlier position in the papal curia. He wrote commentaries on thirteen books of the Holy Bible; a life of Pope St. Leo IX; and one of St. Pietro, bishop of Anagni; a treatise on the Sacraments; and another one on the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass; 145 of his homilies and six books of sentences are still preserved.

        The Writings and Speeches of Edmund Burke Volume VII India The Hastings Trial 1789-1794 Writings Speeches of Edmund Burke

      Oxford University Press. Hardcover. New. Hardcover. 744 pages. Dimensions: 9.4in. x 6.3in. x 2.0in.This key volume specifically completes the collection of Edmund Burkes Indian Writings and Speeches which is set within the series, and is both an exposition of Burkes views on India from his coverage of the Hastings trial, and his views on maintaining the rule of a universal justice. The texts for the items, which have appeared in previous editions of Burkes Works, have been reconstructed, largely by the use of manuscripts. Indeed many of the shorter speeches appear here in print for the first time. The volume includes a key speech which introduced one of the main charges in the trial of Warren Hastings on an impeachment from 1789-1794, and an important report on the conduct of the trial. It closes with Burkes important and detailed summation of the prosecutions. However, this volume is not only a full exposition of Burkes views on India but contains much of great interest about other aspects of his thought. In particular, Burke saw himself in these years as being engaged in a battle against the lawless disruption of society, both in Europe and in Asia, in order to maintain the rule of a universal justice, a main theme of this volume. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN, Momence,IL, Commerce,GA.

        Justifications for Devouring our Fellow Creatures!!

      ?London: n.d., circa, 1789. Broadside, folio, 440 x 275 mm., text in double columns; all edges uncut; framed. An Hawaiian "modest proposal" Extremely rare satirical broadside, using an extended Hawaiian metaphor. Published in the 1780s, within a few years of Cook's discovery of the islands and subsequent death, it exploits the exotic setting of Hawaii and the implications of cannibalism still fresh in the public's mind from the gruesome details then abounding in stories of Cook's death.Detailing fourteen long points about Hawaiian cannibalism, it follows the principles of Swift's "Modest Proposal" by reducing to absurdity the supposed advantages of eating one's fellow man as a means to attack economic dogma and, apparently, the practices of the slave trade. It may not be easy now to follow the satire's precise purpose, but as Forbes points out, 'although its exact intent remains undetermined, this sheet is evidence of how firmly fixed the location of Hawaii (however exotic) would have been in the minds of its intended audience...'.This copy is inscribed "Presented by Mr. Hollis" and dated 1791 in manuscript, while the copy in the British Library has contemporary annotations "E.J." & "June 1789" along with a single manuscript correction to the text.Forbes records this copy (noted as 'now in a private collection') and could identify only two others (British Library and Public Record Office). ESTC records three further copies (John Rylands Library, Göttingen University and New York Historical Society). There is thus no copy recorded in any Hawaiian library.

Da segnalare che l'opera "ha notevole importanza perché è la più antica a riferire del primo effettivo tentativo di ascensione, compiuto il 14 luglio 1775 da Jean Nicolas Couteran, figlio di un'albergatrice e di un notaio di Chamonix".

        Genera Insectorum Linnaei et Fabricii iconibus illustrata.

      Vitoduri Helvetorum, H. Steiner et Socios, 1789. 4to (275 x 215mm). pp. viii, 86, (4), with 1 engraved title-vignette and 37 engraved plates. New half calf, marbled sides. First and only edition of this attractive Swiss publication on entomology. The work was published with plain, as in the present copy, or coloured plates. The fine plates were drawn and engraved by the famous Swiss artist J.R. Schellenberg, being an entomologist himself. He illustrated a number of botanical and entomological works and became most famous for his elaborate drawings showing the smallest details. The author wrote the following about him: "Eben dieser Schellenberg hat ... eine erstaunliche Menge von Insecten nach der Natur gezeichnet und gemahlt ... Richtigkeit der Zeichnung, Leben und das herrlichste Colorit scheinen da mit einander um die Palme streiten zu wollen. Auch die vielen in Kupfer gestochene Insecten-Abbildungen, die wir von ihm haben, zeugen von seiner Kunst, ..." (Thanner p. 144).//Horn & Schenkling 18262; Nissen ZBI, 3462.

        THE FOLLOWING ARE THE AMENDMENTS TO THE NEW CONSTITUTION, PROPOSED BY THE HON. MR. MADDISON [sic]. [Contained in:] GAZETTE OF THE UNITED STATES. No. XVIII

      New York: Published by John Fenno, June 13, 1789.. [4]pp. folio newspaper (the pages numbered [69]-72), printed on a single folded sheet. Three small stab-holes in the margin. Lightly tanned, stained around the edges. Some small paper repairs around the edges. Very good. The second printed appearance of the first draft of the Bill of Rights. What became the first ten amendments to the United States Constitution were first proposed by James Madison in the House of Representatives, then sitting in New York, on June 8, 1789. Madison's proposals were first printed in the New York DAILY ADVERTISER on June 12th, followed the next day by this June 13th issue of the GAZETTE OF THE UNITED STATES - more than three months before they were finalized and approved by the Congress and sent to the states for ratification. James Madison's proposals appear on the third page of this issue, as part of a section giving a "Sketch of Proceedings of Congress," which summarizes activities that took place on June 10, 11, and 12. The resolution as introduced by Madison reads: "Resolved, That the following amendments ought to be proposed by Congress, to the legislatures of the States, to become, if ratified by three fourths thereof, part of the Constitution of the United States." Madison's recommendations are listed as nine proposals, several of which contain multiple clauses. The first proposal proclaims that "all power is originally vested in, and consequently derived from the people," that government is instituted for the benefit of the people, and that they have an unalienable right to reform or change their government. Proposal Four contains much of what became the Bill of Rights: guarantees of religious freedom, freedom of speech and of the press, freedom to assemble, and the right to keep and bear arms. Also, defenses against unreasonable search and seizure, the right to confront witnesses against the accused at trial, protections against self- incrimination, safeguards against double jeopardy, and the right to a speedy and public trial. Madison's proposals were eventually expanded to seventeen Amendments passed by the House of Representatives, which were then winnowed down to twelve by the Senate, of which ten were ratified by the states. Madison's language here is often identical to that of the Bill of Rights as finally approved. The GAZETTE OF THE UNITED STATES was the only newspaper of record during the early years of the Federal government, and was the primary means of disseminating the proceedings and debates in the First Congress at a time when the government of the United States was busy defining itself in terms of the new Constitution. By any account the GAZETTE is the most reliable primary source for United States government affairs and political issues during the critical first Federal Congress of 1789-91. One of the dominant issues of the first year of the government, carrying over from the previous year's debate over ratification of the Constitution, was the need to augment the Constitution to protect individual rights and liberties. That issue was directly addressed in the development of the Bill of Rights. John Fenno established the GAZETTE OF THE UNITED STATES in New York as a Federalist organ to support the new government. The first issue appeared less than two months before the present issue, on April 15, 1789, announcing itself as a semi-official medium for the proceedings and debates of Congress, and promising to print "essays upon the great subjects of Government in general, and the Federal Legislature in particular; also upon the national and local Rights of the American Citizens, as founded upon the Federal or State Constitutions...." Fenno was paid by the government for printing the proceedings of Congress, and the leading Federalists (including Hamilton) stepped in with additional financial assistance when necessary. When the seat of government moved to Philadelphia, Hamilton and others aided Fenno in transferring the newspaper there. This is essentially the earliest version of any form of the Bill of Rights obtainable. The New York DAILY ADVERTISER is exceedingly rare and in any of its issued from this period. A landmark printing of Madison's initial proposal of the Bill of Rights, the fundamental defense of American rights and liberties. A copy brought $31,200 at Swann Galleries in April, 2012.

        Children Bird-nesting [and] Children Nutting

      Published by John Raphael Smith, London 1789 - A pair of mezzotints with added hand colour. Both in good condition (Child Bird-nesting) has some worm damage in the margins, and (Children Nutting) has a few tears in margins one of which extends into the image. Image size: 17 1/4 x 21 5/8 inches. A pair of beautiful images after Morland, the master of English genre painting. 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. He 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. His brother-in-law, William Ward, engraved a great number of his paintings reproducing in print his endearing paintings of English country life. Ward's engravings after Morland are some of the most beautiful prints of the period; they combine fine technical skill and inspired artistic imagination to create enduring images that speak of the taste and beauty of the age.

He is considered as one of "les économistes de second ordre". In 1789 he took up again the subject of the "impôt unique" in order to playx a role in the political discussion in France.

A good copy, wide-margined copy overall.. First Edition. Gregory-Bartlett I p. 275. Hirsch I 585 (lacking the 15 pages of musical examples). RISM BVI p. 846. Damschroder & Williams p. 361. "Daniel Gottlob Turk's Klavierschule (1789) was, for late eighteenth- century readers, an unsurpassed source of practical wisdom concerning the art of playing the clavichord and a repository of useful information of general interest - including discussions of technical terms used in music, summaries of the characteristics which define various categories of composition (overture, serenade, individual dance movements, etc.), and commentary which would enhance the development of musical taste. For modern readers, the work powerfully evokes the standards, practices, and aesthetics of the Classic era. Pianists who perform works of Mozart or Haydn on modern instruments borrowing nineteenth-century legato style and conforming to metronomic exactitude in pacing might find Turk's suggestions concerning non-legato articulation and nuanced rhythmic delivery a revelation. It is upon such books as Turk's that the recent movement towards performance on original instruments depends for sound advice on the use of the keyboard's resources for creating appropriate musical effects." Damschroder & Williams p. 361

        Mrs. Goodall

      Published by R. Sayer & Co. Fleet Street, London 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.

        Justifications for Devouring our Fellow Creatures!!

      n.d., circa, ?London 1789 - Broadside, folio, 440 x 275 mm., text in double columns; all edges uncut; framed. An Hawaiian "modest proposal" Extremely rare satirical broadside, using an extended Hawaiian metaphor. Published in the 1780s, within a few years of Cook's discovery of the islands and subsequent death, it exploits the exotic setting of Hawaii and the implications of cannibalism still fresh in the public's mind from the gruesome details then abounding in stories of Cook's death. Detailing fourteen long points about Hawaiian cannibalism, it follows the principles of Swift's "Modest Proposal" by reducing to absurdity the supposed advantages of eating one's fellow man as a means to attack economic dogma and, apparently, the practices of the slave trade. It may not be easy now to follow the satire's precise purpose, but as Forbes points out, 'although its exact intent remains undetermined, this sheet is evidence of how firmly fixed the location of Hawaii (however exotic) would have been in the minds of its intended audience?'. This copy is inscribed "Presented by Mr. Hollis" and dated 1791 in manuscript, while the copy in the British Library has contemporary annotations "E.J." & "June 1789" along with a single manuscript correction to the text. Forbes records this copy (noted as 'now in a private collection') and could identify only two others (British Library and Public Record Office). ESTC records three further copies (John Rylands Library, Göttingen University and New York Historical Society). There is thus no copy recorded in any Hawaiian library.

Pavia: P. Galeati, 1789. First edition of Scarpa&#39;s important work on the auditory and olfactory apparatus. "In 1789 Scarpa made his historic observations on the membrane labyrinth, which he discovered together with its endolymph...Scarpa precisely described the membrane semicircular canals with the ampullae and the utricle, and discovered the vestibular nerve and its ganglion (named for him). He was even able to observe the microscopical structure of the ampullae and identify the origin of the fibers of the vestibular nerve...He accurately illustrated the course of the human acoustic nerve from the cochlea to the rhombencephalon."-D.S.B., XII, p. 137. The beautiful plates are after Scarpa&#39;s own designs. "Of all medical men who have illustrated their own books, probably none have ever exhibited such striking artistic talent as that brilliant Venetian -- Antonio Scarpa (1747-1832)...Scarpa was a virtuoso in the most varied sense, a great anatomist and surgeon, equally skilled as orthopedist and ophthalmologist, an irreproachable Latinist, a master of sarcasm, yet a most attractive teacher, and a draftsman of the first order."-Garrison, History of Medicine, p. 336. A very fine and handsome copy. With the armorial bookplate of Giovanni Antonio Brambilla (1728-1800), an important military surgeon, who "was given by the Emperor Joseph II the task of reorganizing the teaching of military medicine...In Vienna he instituted the Josephinum, an academy of military medicine and surgery (1785), where regular instruction was given for military surgeons...He was one of a number of Italian physicians who successfully practiced medicine in Vienna about the turn of the century."-Castiglioni, p. 625.
