        A Narrative of Four Journeys Into the Country of the Hottentots, and Caffraria in the Years One Thousand and Seventy-Seven, Eight, and Nine

      No. 72, St. Paul's Church-Yard, London: Printed for J. Johnson, 1789. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Very good. William Paterson, FRS (1755 –1810) was a Scottish soldier, explorer, administrator, and botanist best known for leading early settlement in Tasmania. This volume is finely bound in a recent brown half leather over marbled paper boards with raised and gilt spine bands, gilt rules, red spine title box, and leather corners. The binding is virtually as-new. The contents are very good with only light intermittent spotting and toning to the engravings as normal. All 17 copper plates as well as the folding map are present and in excellent condition. This is one of the first English descriptions of the interior of South Africa. "Patterson accompanied Colonel Gordon (Commander of the Troops of the Dutch East India Company in South Africa) and Jacob van Reenen in several trips to the interior. In the course of his travels the author penetrated as far as Namaqualand on the west, and the Great Fish River on the south-east. Although the principal feature of the work is a description of the botanical specimens collected and noted by Mr. Paterson, there are many interesting notes respecting the natives with a few remarks on the Dutch Colonists." (Mendelssohn, Vol. II, p.143)

        PLANTAE RARIORES VIVIS COLORIBUS DEPICTAE

      Lugduni Batavorum: apud Jacobum Meerburg, 1789. Second Printing, and the First Edition in Latin . Hardcover. The Plesch Copy of a Botanical Work with 55 Distinctive Colored Plates in Japanese Style. 445 x 279 mm (17 1/2 x 11"). A2-F2, [1] leaf (complete). Second Printing, and the First Edition in Latin. Modern half sheep over contemporary boards, red morocco label. WITH 55 VERY APPEALING HAND-COLORED ETCHED PLATES of flowers and butterflies. Front pastedown with morocco bookplate of Arpad Plesch (see below). Dunthorne 203; Great Flower Books, p.119; Landwehr 126; Nissen BBI 1333; Stafleu & Cowan 5785. Paper boards a bit chafed, marked, and with shallow cracks at upper corners (where the covers have been quite bumped at one time), but the binding sound and, therefore, entirely satisfactory. Six or eight plates slightly toned (one or two of these tending toward brown), otherwise a fine copy internally, the text and plates clean and fresh, the engravings with clear, carefully applied colors, and the margins ample enough to qualify as Large Paper. This is an extremely pleasing copy of a large-folio flower book with illustrations of unusual beauty. While we know of no reason to explain the fact, the plates, done in the Netherlands by a Dutchman, seem remarkably Japanese in character. They are suggestive, rather than naturalistic, presenting the viewer with visual metaphors in two dimensional compositions lacking anything except rudimentary rounding or modeling. There is no use of shadow and no subtle gradations of light and dark. The engraved lines of the plant structures and the inquisitive butterflies they attract are quite apparent, but the coloration is generally toward the pastel. However this cross-fertilization took place (if, in fact, it was at work at all), the result is memorable, as the plates are large, full of tranquility, and faithful in their distinctive style. Gardener, illustrator, and botanist Nicolaas Meerburgh (1734-1814) was born in Leyden and is believed to have trained under master gardener Adriaan Steckhoven. He became curator of the Botanical Garden at the University of Leyden in 1774, and held this post until his death. The present Latin edition has five more plates than the earlier Dutch edition as well as an additional page of text. Our copy comes from the renowned library of Hungarian collector Arpad Plesch (1890-1974), whose botanical library was described by Sotheby's as "unequalled outside the great museums and institutional libraries." Both editions of this work are very difficult to obtain: ABPC lists five other copies of our edition at auction since 1975 and only one copy of the 1775 first printing (this 1775 copy was also from the Plesch library and sold three separate times, the last time in 2003 for a hammer price of £8,000, or just over $13,000). This figure is of some usefulness in determining the worth of the present volume because at the original Plesch auction in 1975, the first edition sold for the same price as our first Latin printing.

      Amsterdam: Laporte, 1789. Hardcover. Contents quite clean with a minimum of foxing; occasional tear or crease rarely with any effect on an image. Bindings with edgewear, spines deteriorated; boards detached on the third volume, the front board nearly detached on the first. Bindings quite worn but contents Very Good. Four folio (10" x 16") volumes bound in calf-backed marbled boards of one of the most spectacular illustrated works of the 18th-century. Illustrated with 263 engravings, all but 1 full page and some with more than one image, and including 41 large folding plates. First published in 1723 with 223 copper engravings, this edition is enlarged and appears to be the last published in the 18th century and in folio size. The plates, many double-page, illustrate in great detail scenes of religious ceremonies, views of temples and churches, and religious costumes. This edition is not in Sabin. Bookplates of O'Connell and Adolph Grant on the pastedowns. Perhaps the best known illustrated history of religion of the 18th century, this work is especially noteworthy for its depictions of Jewish religious customs as well as a number of plates after De Bry of Native American ceremonies. ìPicart earned a place in the history of Jewish art by his realistic portrayal of Jewish religious rites. These constitute an invaluable record of Dutch Jewry in the early 18th-centuryî (ENCYCLOPEDIA JUDAICA).

An account of the principal lazarettos in Europe; with various papers relative to the plague: Together with further observations on some foreign prisons and hospitals; and additional remarks on the present state of those in Great Britain and Ireland. 4to. [v-vii] viii, 259 [15] pp. 22 engraved plates, fold. eng. table. Lacking half-title and (possibly) initial blank, as in most presentation copies. Warrington: William Eyres for T. Cadell, J. Johnson, C. Dilly, and J. Taylor, 1789. 298 x 233 mm. Half calf, gilt spine, rubbed. Light browning & foxing, but very good. Presentation copy, with blank leaf (possibly original initial blank) bound after the title, bearing Howard's inscription to Sir Richard Perryn, Baron of the Exchequer (1723-1803): "Mr. Howard requests Mr. Baron Perryn, will be kind enough to accept this book from him, as a small mark of his respect." Perryn's engraved bookplate on front pastedown.First Edition. Garrison-Morton 1601. Although best known as a prison reformer on the strength of his famous State of the Prisons in England and Wales (1777; see Printing and the Mind of Man 224), the English philanthropist John Howard was also concerned with the improvement of sanitary conditions in other public institutions. His work in this area represents an important link in the development of the public health movement. The present work, an investigation of the conditions of English and European hospitals (including mental hospitals and quarantine detention houses) contains both plans and notes on management and personnel; it also includes notes of Howard's latest inspections of Irish, Scottish and English prisons.Howard presented this copy of his Lazarettos to British jurist Sir Richard Perryn, who was named Baron (i.e., judge) of the Court of Exchequer in 1776. "As a judge in criminal cases Perryn seems to have been inclined to ameliorate the law's harshness" (Oxford DNB); he was thus likely to have been receptive to Howard's recommendations for prison reform. Arnold M. Muirhead, in his preface to Baumgartner's John Howard, notes that presentation copies of Howard's State of the Prisons usually have the half-title removed and a separate leaf with Howard's inscription inserted; Howard also followed this custom with the Lazarettos.

        Regolamento dei Regi spedali di Santa Maria Nuova di Bonifazio

      Florence: Gaetano Cambiagi, 1789. Chiarugi, Vincenzo (1739-1820). Regolamento dei Regi spedali di Santa Maria Nuova di Bonifazio. 4to. lxxviii, [2], 416, [82]pp., incl. 27 charts (some folding, some double-page). Engraved title and 10 folding engraved plates (1 in facsimile). Florence: Gaetano Cambiagi, 1789. 273 x 200 mm. 19th cent. half vellum, marbled boards, light rubbing. Paper flaw in leaf oo1, otherwise fine. First Edition. In 1774, under the enlightened rule of the Grand Duke Peter Leopold of Tuscany, the first law in Europe authorizing hospital care for the insane was enacted. The following year Vincenzo Chiarugi, then senior physician at the Hospital of Santa Maria Nuova, recommended to the Duke that the insane be relocated to the old Bonifazio Hospital, which would be renovated for the purpose; in 1788, the new Bonifazio Hospital was officially opened. Chiarugi was named physician-in-chief of the new hospital, which was dedicated to the care of insane, incurable, invalid and dermatologic patients; his humane administration with regard to the insane marked the first application of the principles of treatment that form the basis of modern psychiatry.Chiarugi required a physical examination and clinical assessment of each patient admitted, hygienic rooms with segregation of the sexes, no restraint beyond strait jacket and cotton strips, a firm but kindly attitude on the part of the staff, and no work assignments for the patients except those that would benefit their situations.When it came time to reprint the regulations of the Hospital of Santa Maria Nuova (which had been issued a few years previously by Count Covoni-Girolami), the Grand Duke encouraged Chiarugi to add a section on the rules and regulations of the Bonifazio Hospital. Chiarugi's additions to this administrative manual constitute the first appearance in print of his reforms in the care of the mentally ill, preceding by four years their fuller exposition in his Della pazzia in genere, e in specie. Mora, "Chiarugi and psychiatric reform," J. Hist. Med. & Allied Sci. 14 (1959), pp 424-433. Norman 474.

John Gladstone's wealth was based on trade with Calcutta and later Virginia tobacco and American grain. He acquired large sugar plantations in Jamaica and British Guiana where he used slave labor. When the slave trade was abolished in the British Empire in 1833, he was active in obtaining compensation for slave owners. He himself received the modern equivalent of millions of dollars for the 2,508 slaves he owned across nine plantations. After the abolition of slavery, Gladstone used Indentured servants from India to work in slavery-like conditions in his sugar plantations. He he was the father of William Ewart Gladstone, Prime Minister under Queen Victoria, one of the most significant politicians of the 19th century.

        Souvenirs d'un Homme du Monde. In two volumes

      Paris - Maradan, 1789 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition. A scarce first edition of this work by the French inventor of pasigraphy, written during the year of the French Revolution. First Edition. 'Ou recueil de penses diverses, d'observations de bons-mots, de faits singuliers, d'anecdotes & d'opuscules'. 'Memories of a man's world. Or a collection of various thoughts, observations, good words, unusual facts, anecdotes & booklets'. Volume I features an engraved frontispiece. Complete in two volumes. Joseph Maimieux(1753-1820), was a noble whoimmigrated to Germany at the time of the Revolution, returning to France in 1797. He invented pasigraphy, a 'kind of system of universal language'. Etymologically, pasigraphy means 'write everything'. In his presentation, however, probably for the sake of outreach, Joseph Maimieux defined it as 'the art of writing at all'. Some pasigraphies may be very close to the notion of ideogram (symbol representing a word or idea) and that of pictogram (concrete representation of the thing by a simplified schematic drawing). Condition: In full leather bindings. Externally, generally smart, some wear to the extremities. Internally, firmly bound. Clean with just a few scattered spots. Some slight marginal tidemarks to the first few pages. Copperplate ink signatures to titlepages. Repairs to p. 197 andp. 59 of Volume I, where there has been some loss to the text. Overall: VERY GOOD..

        VIAJE POLITICO-CIENTIFICO ALREDEDOR DEL MUNDO POR LAS CORBETAS DESCUBIERTA Y ATREVIDA AL MANDO DE LOS CAPITANES DE NAVIO D. ALEJANDRO MALASPINA Y D. JOSE DE BUSTAMANTE Y GUERRA

      - desde 1789 a 1794. Publicado con una introducción por. Madrid, Imprenta de la Viuda e Hijos de Abienzo, 1885, 25x34, 4 hojas, retrato grabado, XXXI + 681 páginas. 3 hojas. 1 mapa plegado y 6 láminas grabadas. Texto impreso a dos columnas. Bien encuadernado en una bella holandesa con la lomera en piel de cabra con nervios, hierros en seco y ruedas doradas, puntas en piel, conserva la cubierta original. Perfecto estado. (Palau 195860, "obra de calidad muy documentada y elogiada por Martín Fernández de Navarrete que la estudió en su época cuando aún estaba inédita". Se trata del mayor viaje científico de España al Océano Pacífico y a la California y la Costa Noroeste de América en el siglo XVIII. En 1789 Malaspina y Bustamante prepararon los proyectos para esta circunnavegación científica con los objetivos de trazar las regiones más remotas de América y observar el estado político de América con relación a España, etc. A su regreso a España, Malaspina presentó un informe, Viaje político-científico alrededor del mundo (1794), que incluía un informe político confidencial, con observaciones críticas de carácter político acerca de las instituciones coloniales españolas y favorable a la concesión de una amplia autonomía a las colonias americanas y del Pacífico, lo que le valió que, en noviembre de 1795, fuera acusado por Manuel Godoy de revolucionario y conspirador y condenado a diez años de prisión en el castillo de San Antón de La Coruña. Este trabajo se compiló con los documentos inéditos de Malaspina que habían permanecido olvidados durante casi un siglo en la Dirección de Hidrografía del Ministerio de Marina en Madrid hasta que el teniente de navío Pedro de Novo y Colson publicó la presente obra. Proyectada para reconocer y estudiar minuciosamente hasta el último rincón de sus dominios, la Expedición Malaspina(1789-1794) constituye uno de los episodios más brillantes de la historia naval, científica y política de la España del siglo XVIII. A pesar de haber mandado el mayor viaje científico de España a la exploración de los Mares del Sur en el XVIII, Malaspina es casi desconocido. Algunos eruditos consideran las proezas de su viaje de cinco años tan grandes como aquellos de La Pérouse o del capitán Cook). (54800).

John Gladstone's wealth was based on trade with Calcutta and later Virginia tobacco and American grain. He acquired large sugar plantations in Jamaica and British Guiana where he used slave labor. When the slave trade was abolished in the British Empire in 1833, he was active in obtaining compensation for slave owners. He himself received the modern equivalent of millions of dollars for the 2,508 slaves he owned across nine plantations. After the abolition of slavery, Gladstone used Indentured servants from India to work in slavery-like conditions in his sugar plantations. He he was the father of William Ewart Gladstone, Prime Minister under Queen Victoria, one of the most significant politicians of the 19th century.

        A Narrative of Four Journeys Into the Country of the Hottentots, and Caffraria in the Years One Thousand and Seventy-Seven, Eight, and Nine

      No. 72, St. Paul's Church-Yard, London: Printed for J. Johnson, 1789. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Very good. William Paterson, FRS (1755 –1810) was a Scottish soldier, explorer, administrator, and botanist best known for leading early settlement in Tasmania. This volume is finely bound in a recent brown half leather over marbled paper boards with raised and gilt spine bands, gilt rules, red spine title box, and leather corners. The binding is virtually as-new. The contents are very good with only light intermittent spotting and toning to the engravings as normal. All 17 copper plates as well as the folding map are present and in excellent condition. This is one of the first English descriptions of the interior of South Africa. "Patterson accompanied Colonel Gordon (Commander of the Troops of the Dutch East India Company in South Africa) and Jacob van Reenen in several trips to the interior. In the course of his travels the author penetrated as far as Namaqualand on the west, and the Great Fish River on the south-east. Although the principal feature of the work is a description of the botanical specimens collected and noted by Mr. Paterson, there are many interesting notes respecting the natives with a few remarks on the Dutch Colonists."

        ESSAYS ON PHYSIOGNOMY: DESIGNED TO PROMOTE THE KNOWLEDGE AND THE LOVE OF MANKIND

      London: Printed for John Murray, 1789. FIRST EDITION IN ENGLISH . Hardcover. 350 x 280 mm (13 3/4 x 11"). Three volumes bound in five. Translated by Henry Hunter. FIRST EDITION IN ENGLISH. Contemporary diced russia, covers with frame featuring a gilt floral chain, raised bands flanked by thick and thin gilt rules, small gilt wheel tool at the center of spine panels, gilt titling, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. With three engraved title vignettes, more than 350 engraved text illustrations, and 173 ENGRAVED PLATES SHOWING HEADS OF THE GREAT AND LOWLY (three of the illustrations and one of the plates by William Blake, much of the engraved material after Henry Fuseli). Osler 3178; Wellcome III, 458; Bentley, "Blake Books" 481; Lowndes II, 1321 ("a sumptuous edition"). Joints a bit worn, three of them starting at tail, corners bumped, boards somewhat spotted, about half the plates affected by (mostly marginal) foxing, a couple dozen noticeably so, minor offsetting from engravings, other minor defects, but the text smooth and clean with ample margins, and the attractive original bindings sound and generally well preserved. This is the first appearance in English of a key work in the field of physiognomy, with four engravings by William Blake. First published in German between 1775 and 1778, Lavater&#39;s great work was translated into French by La Haye and from there into our edition, which was originally issued in 41 parts between 1789 and 1798. Our luxurious edition on fine paper was overseen by artist Henry Fuseli (1741-1825), who grew up with Lavater (1741-1801) in Zurich. The text draws heavily on the works of Italian polymath Giambattista della Porta and on the "Religio Medici" of Sir Thomas Browne, which was published in German in 1748 and much praised by Lavater. According to Britannica, this work was widely admired for its "handsome style of publication and the accompanying illustrations." The original plates were re-engraved for our edition under Fuseli&#39;s supervision, employing top English engravers, among them Blake, whose work appears in volume I (the memorable portrait of Democritus, after Rubens, bound between pp. 158 and 159, and three signed illustrations in the text on pp. 127, 206, and 225). There is significant foxing in this set--as there is in almost all copies of this first English edition--but the still-pleasing original bindings go a good distance toward compensating for this.

        AN ACCOUNT OF THE PRINCIPAL LAZARETTOS IN EUROPE WITH VARIOUS PAPERS RELATIVE TO THE PLAGUE. Leona Baumgartner copy. Together with Further Observations on Some Foreign Prisons and Hospitals; and Additional Remarks on the Present State of Those in Great Britain and Ireland

      Printed by William Eyres, Warrington, and sold by T. Cadell, J. Johnson, C. Dilly, and J. Taylor. London. 1789 - FIRST EDITION. 4to. (11.8 x 9.7 inches). Illustrated with 22 engraved plates, 19 of them folding, plus large fold-out table. [6], 259, [13]pp. Lacking the directions to the binder leaf, presumably removed by the binder when the book was bound. Generally a clean and tidy copy but with a few gatherings, and engravings, affected by foxing. Early half brown calf binding which has been re-backed in cloth and with the calf spine re-laid with some loss, mainly to the top and bottom. Hinges cracked but holding. An interesting copy with the bookplates of three previous owners; 1. Arthur Atherley (1772 - 1844) English Member of Parliament for the Southampton constituency three times, as Whig, Liberal and Reformer. -- 2. John Farquhar Fulton (1899 - 1960) one of the three founders of the Medical Historical Library at Yale. Fulton also participated in the first clinical trials of penicillin in the United States. -- 3. Leona Baumgartner (1902 - 1991) New York City's Commissioner of Health from 1954 to 1962 when President John F. Kennedy appointed her to head the Office of Technical Cooperation and Research at A.I.D., making her the highest-ranking woman in the United States Government at the time. More importantly regarding this volume, she was also the author of JOHN HOWARD (1726-1790), Hospital & Prison Reformer: A Bibliography. 1939. Tipped in to the front free endpaper is a hand written note, dated 1934, from Fulton presenting this volume to her. There is also a typed letter, signed, by the New York Rare book dealer Herbert Reichner, dated 1944, suggesting a variant edition of Howard's Account of the Principal Lazarettos that she had not included in her book and a catalogue description of said volume plus a couple of other descriptions of copies of the book, one hand written and one printed. Not the most attracive copy but certainly one with an interesting history. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Mémoires sur la campagne de 1788 en Suède, par le prince Charles de Hesse.

      Köpenhamn, Jean Frederic Schultz, 1789. 8:o. (2),+ 108,+ (88) s. Lagerfläckig och med enstaka småfläckar. Bläckanteckningar i marginalen av Gustaf d'Albedyhll på s. 5-6, 73 och 85. Nära samtida blått pappband, vit ryggtiteletikett. Ur Gustaf d'Albedyhlls bibliotek, med hans exlibris, och ur Ericsbergs, med Carl Jedvard Bondes exlibris klistrat ovanpå d'Albedyhlls. Setterwall 3382. Carlander III, 88ff. Fin proveniens av första upplagan av Karl von Hessens berättelse om kriget mellan Sverige och Danmark 1788. Diplomaten Gustaf d'Albedyhll anlände som minister till Köpenhamn, för andra gången, i november 1787 och blev avsatt efter skandalen med en felslagen plan att vintern 1788-89 bränna upp en rysk eskader som ankrat i det isbelagda Öresund. Hela 1788 var han dock på plats i Köpenhamn, där han hade god kontakt med Bernstorff.Boken utkom samma år i en ovanlig svensk upplaga, och även i en dansk, tysk och engelsk. Karl av Hessen (1744-1836) var militär i dansk tjänst och ledde de danska trupperna i Norge mot Sverige i dansk-svenska kriget 1788. Boken handlar mycket om striderna i Bohuslän. Publicerad med 33 aktstycken på slutet.Gustaf d'Albedyhlls (1758-1819) boksamling ärvdes av hans son Carl Gustaf Eichstedt d'Albedyhll (1800-56), som därigenom tillsammans med egna förvärv byggde upp en mycket stor samling, framförallt inom nordisk historia. Denna samling skulle sålts på auktion 1843, men köptes i stället i sin helhet av Carl Jedvard Bonde, för övrigt samma år som denne efterträdde d'Albedyhll som överceremonimästare. Gustaf d'Albedyhlls exlibris i variant 1 med devisen "Mors sine musis vita"

Gustaf von Paykull (1757-1826) var kluven mellan den vittra och vetenskapliga banan, men då Leopold ska ha sagt åt honom att han var en av de främsta av våra medelmåttiga poeter, fick detta omdöme honom att mer ägna sig åt vetenskapen. Som entomolog publicerade han ett tiotal rön i "Vetenskapsakademiens handlingar" och separat bland annat föreliggande arbeten, vilka är vackert tryckta av Edman i Uppsala. Han belönades 1818 med friherrlig värdighet som tack för att han skänkte sin stora naturaliesamling till Vetenskapsakademien, där den bildade grunden till Naturhistoriska riksmuseet

        Essays on physiognomy, designed to promote the knowledge and the love of mankind.

      John Murray 1789; 1792; 1810 Complete with all blank leaves, half-titles and directions to the binder. With more than 800 engravings, including 173 copper engraved plates and 359 text images by and after Thomas Holloway, Fuseli and others, and by William Blake. Contemporary polished calf, gilt spines, front joints a bit sensitive; interior with minor foxing and off-setting of the plates as usual, but generally a tall, clean and well-margined set in excellent condition. First English edition of Volumes I and II, with the sheets of the third volume reissued by Stockdale. The work is famous for the splendid illustrations and vignettes, including the plates by William Blake. It was a classic pseudo-scientific work, extremely influential in the history of psychiatry, and represents Lavater's account of madmen, demons, and terror.
