        Cedula de S. M. para el Establecimiento de la Real Compañia Maritima de 19 de Setiembre de 1789

      de Orden Superior, Madrid 1789 - Bound to style in vellum, manuscript lettering to spine The printed version of the Spanish Royal decree establishing the Real Compañía Marítima (Royal Maritime Company) This fascinating work is beautifully printed, and includes a carefully engraved and coloured image of the flag that was granted to the Real Compañía Maritima.

The intention was that the Compañía Maritima should spear-head a revival of the Spanish fishing and whaling industries, which had foundered by the late 18th century. The Compañía Marítima was initially well-funded with its financial backers including the Spanish King himself, but was not a success and was dissolved early in the nineteenth century.

[i-ii], 1-44pp. letterpress title with large wood-cut vignette of the Spanish Royal arms, text in Spanish, signed at the end with the paraph of Antonio Valdés, minister of the Spanish Navy. 1 small format (5 1/2 x 7 1/4 inches) hand-coloured engraving of the Real Compañia Maritima flag.

      London Printed for G. Kearsley. 1789 - FIRST ABRIDGED EDITION. 2 volumes. 8vo, pp. xi [xii blank], 569 [570 blank, 571-572 adverts]; xi [xii blank], 562 [563-564 adverts], contemporary calf, rebacked with old spines and labels preserved and laid down, new front free end-paper in each volume. A very good set, with the words "Philosopher & Infidel" in a contemporary hand bracketing Gibbon's name on the title-page. This abridgement of Gibbon's six massive quartos has been variously attributed to the Aberdonian schoolmaster and educational writer John Adams (1750 - 1814) in the BL catalogue and in the Oxford DNB; and to the Reverend Charles Hereford by other commentators. The same abridgement was published in Dublin in 1790. There are three ESTC listings for this work.

        Mechanischer verbesserter Wind-Regen-und Trockenheitsbeobachter

      Freyburg & Annaberg, 1789. First Edition. Contemp. marbled wrappers. A very good copy; small, inoffensive 19th cent. lib. stamp on the title. 8vo., There are 4 numbered plates on two sheets illus. the devices. This pamphlet is a description of an elaborate an innovative automatic recording device for rain, wind direction and humidity. Each of the measurement systems devised by Herrmann were clock driven and appear to be the refinement of a similar system designed by Leupold in 1726. Herrmann&#39;s genius, however, is revealed in his design for the wind recorder. This device consisted of a wheel with 12 sector shaped compartments. Once and hour a clock driven hammer ejected a numbered cube from a magazine into the appropriate sector. After a fixed time cycle the observer would have a clear record of changing wind conditions.

Among the many aspects of emergency medicine, the author treats the following: Vol. I. Loss of consciousness, including apoplexy, sexual intercourse, paralysis, sunstroke, cholera, epilepsy, intoxication, etc.; Vol. II Vomiting blood, blood in urine, jaundice, deafness, obstructed urethra, lockjaw, wounds, cuts, contususions, eye injury, scalds and burns, frostbite, etc.; Vol. III.

        Versuch einer Logic f&#159;r Frauenzimmer.

      Hanover: Christian Ritscher, 1789. - This highly original work, for the young author states that no other work has been consulted, is the fruit of lessons in philosophy given by her father, and is published here that it might benefit women interested in the subject. It is divided into five sections: 1) of ideas or concepts; b) of symbolic knowledge; c) of judgments and theses; e) of conclusion and syllogisms. The whole is introduced by a preface detailing the use of logic and its place in philosophy, and concludes with some practical examples. Small octavo. 162 pp. Silhouette portrait vignette on title-page. Contemporary brown cloth over decorative boards, paper spine label with title in manuscript. Spine ends, edges of boards rubbed. Occasional light foxing. Former ownerÕs rubberstamp on front free endpaper and dedication page. A very good copy. First and only edition of a philosophical manual written by the fourteen-year old Baroness Philippine von Knigge (1775-1841). She was the daughter of Adolf von Knigge (1752-1796), author of several satirical novels and best known for &#134;ber den Umgang mit Menschen (1788), Òa work of practical wisdom on the conduct of lifeÓ (Garland). In later years, Philippine von Knigge translated Richard Brinsley SheridanÕs life of Swift, together with her father (1795), and wrote by herself Lebensregeln aus den besten &#138;ltern und neueren Schriftstellern (1799). All of her works are rare. OCLC locates ten copies worldwide, but only three in the English-speaking world: the Universities of Texas and Illinois, and Princeton. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      London: Printed For John Stockdale & George Goulding, 1789., 1789. 4to. pp. xii, 384, xl. 1 large folding engraved general chart, 5 other folding engraved charts & plans, engraved frontis. portrait & 13 engraved plates. contemporary calf, rebacked (slight staining along folds of 2 maps & to top edge of 2 plates &#150; supplied). First Edition. Nathaniel Portlock and William Dixon, both veterans of Captain Cook&#146;s third voyage to the Pacific in 1776-80, were engaged in 1785 by the King George&#146;s Sound Company, to investigate reports of the lucrative fur trade on the northwest American coast and establish a trade on their behalf. Their major accomplishment, however, was the more detailed exploration and mapping of the coast and improving of Cook&#146;s charts of the region. On the voyage out, visits were made to the Falkland and Hawaiian Islands. The two ships later separated and sailed independently for a major part of the expedition, Portlock exploring northward up along the Alaskan coast, Dixon proceeding south to Nootka Sound, and discovering Queen Charlotte Island, Port Mulgrave and Norfolk Bay. Both Dixon and Portlock published accounts of the voyage, but Portlock&#146;s, as Hill points out, is of particular interest and value for his vivid descriptions of encounters with the Russians and American Indians. Several Indian vocabularies are also included. The maps and plans comprise a chart of the North West Coast of America, and sketches of Graham&#146;s Harbour and Coal Bay, McLeod&#146;s Harbour, Part of the West Side of Montague Island, Port Etches and Brooks Harbour, and Portlock&#146;s and Gopulding&#146;s Harbours.

Cadell, in the Strand, 1793. [4],179pp. In this copy the third title in our description is bound first, with the next two following it. Quarto. Contemporary marbled paper boards with new calf backstrip and corners, gilt leather spine label. A few leaves with light foxing, else quite clean internally. Very good. This is the complete complement of works arising out of the long-standing dispute between England and Spain over the English colonization of the Mosquito Coast in Central America. Latin America had historically been controlled by Spain (for the most part) though the English established a presence in Central America in the seventeenth century, represented mostly by buccaneers or logwood cutters. By the mid-eighteenth century the region had several hundred British settlers, and their right to live in the area was seemingly affirmed by Spain in the 1763 Treaty of Paris, which ended the Seven Years' War. However, in 1779 Spain entered the American Revolutionary War as an ally of France, which had just made a treaty of alliance with the United States. This precipitated a Spanish attack on British settlements in the Mosquito Coast, in which a large amount of British property was destroyed. The Convention of London of 1786 between England and Spain called for the evacuation of British subjects from the Mosquito Coast. The arguments of the English claimants to losses that resulted from the 1779 attack and the 1786 treaty are laid out in great detail in this group of texts. Included are a historical sketch of the region and of the English presence there, a detailed chronological description of the conflict with Spain, and an account of English monetary damages and losses. Robert White was the lead counselor on behalf of the claimants. A search of OCLC reveals only three institutions that have all three of the titles listed above, the British Library, the National Library of Scotland, and the Huntington Library. Rare, and quite interesting with regard to this manifestation of the Anglo- Spanish rivalry in America. SABIN 103448, 103447, 51077. PALAU 375018, 375017.

Some marginal soiling at front, faint dampstains, less than faint in lower blank margins of final 3 leaves. Overall in very good condition. ---- FIRST EDITION, second issue, with the layout of the title slightly different from that of the first issue; see Furlong, who suggests that the second issue was either printed in the same year or in the following one, without a change of date on the title-page. @Voces del pastor was enormously popular, with at least nine editions appearing by the mid-nineteenth century. Its subject is dying: salvation, redemption, receiving the last rites, God's judgment, and heaven and hell.San Alberto (1727-1804), a Discalced Carmelite born in the Aragonese town of Fresno, was appointed Bishop of Córdoba de Tucumán in 1778, and Bishop of La Plata in 1786. He was one of the outstanding prelates of the late colonial period in Latin America, known for his learning and for his charity to the poor.---- Palau 289516: giving an incomplete collation.
