        The Loiterer.

      Oxford: Printed for the author and sold by C. S. Rann [others in later parts], 1789–90 - Octavo (208 x 125 mm) in 60 parts, with printed part-titles for each. Contemporary pale tan polished calf, spine divided in 6 compartments by raised bands, red morocco label, other compartments gilt with central flower tools. Contemporary ownership inscription of R. Ekins at head of front free endpaper. Joints starting, some light chipping and wear, part-title for No. 2 mounted on a stub, Q1 with small marginal tear in corner with loss, marginal worming to a few leaves, a very good copy. First edition, possibly Jane Austen's first appearance in print. This scarce periodical was written by James and Henry Austen while they were at Oxford. Some scholars have suggested that in issue number 9, the letter signed "Sophia Sentiment" was the work of their sister Jane when she was 14. Although Gilson does not include this work in his Bibliography, there is a strong case that the work was written by Jane Austen. According to the British Library, "critics such as Paula Byrne have noted that there are various correspondences between the letter and Jane Austen's juvenilia. Her early, epistolary novel Love and Freindship [sic], for example, has two heroines quite as shallow as Sophia. But other critics, such as Kathryn Sutherland and Claire Tomalin, find it unlikely that Austen would have written a letter so critical of women's reading choices. They suggest that Sophia Sentiment's letter was probably written by one of Austen's brothers." Even if "Sophia Sentiment" cannot be definitively linked with Jane Austen, the experience her brothers had in printing this work no doubt had some influence on her. Gilson suggests that it was through the publication of The Loiterer that she became acquainted with Egerton of Whitehall (who were the London distributors of this work from the fifth number on) who later published her Sense and Sensibility. See Sir Zachary Cope, "Who was Sophia Sentiment? Was she Jane Austen," Book Collector 15 (1996) pp. 143-151, A.W. Litz, "The Loiterer: a reflection of Jane Austen's early environment", Review of English Studies 12 (1961) pp.251-261. [Attributes: First Edition]

        A VOYAGE ROUND THE WORLD; but More Particularly to the North-west Coast of America: Performed in 1785, 1786, 1787, and 1788, in the King George and Queen Charlotte, Captains Portlock and Dixon. Embellished with Twenty Copper-plates. Dedicated, by Permission, to His Majesty.

      John Stockdale and Geo. Goulding, London 1789 - London: John Stockdale and Geo. Goulding, 1789. 1st edition. 4to. xii + 384pp + xl. 14 engraved plates (including frontispiece portrait), large folding map and 5 folding charts. Contemporary diced brown morocco, recent matching calf spine, raised bands, attractive black and brown morocco labels, gilt, marbled endpapers and edges. Some light offsetting from plates and frontispiece, as usual; else a fine copy. Following up on Captain Cook's Exploration of the Pacific Northwest. The King George's Sound Company was formed in London in May 1785 for the purposes of fur trading on the Northwest coast of America. It purchased two ships, renamed the King George (commanded by Captain Portlock, and chief of the expedition) and Queen Charlotte (commanded by Captain George Dixon). Both men had accompanied Captain Cook on his last voyage and visited the Northwest coast with him. Sailing from England the 2 ships arrived at Cook's River in July1786, where they found a summer settlement of Russian hunters. Portlock's account is valued for descriptions of local conditions and observations of indigenous people, with details of their customs. ¿During my stay amongst the Russians, they were all very busily employed. Some were dressing green sea otter skins, others repairing their boats, and cleaning arms. Most of the Indians were out on a hunting party; the few left behind were busied in fitting darts to their spears, and making snuff from tobacco, of which they seem very fond, and their women in cooking and repairing canoes.¿ The furs that Portlock and Dixon acquired were sold in Macao; they then proceeded to England with a consignment of tea for the East India Company. Portlock's account of the expedition also provides an illustrated account of the flora and fauna, and includes a geographical record of the entire voyage.

        FRENCH REVOLUTION: IERE ATTAQUE DE LA BASTILLE PRISE D'ASSAUT EN 3. HEURES DE TEMPS, LE 14. JUILLET 1789.

      Paris 1789 - Etching and aquatint, printed in four colours (Very good, slighty dusty in margins, with very light stains), 30 x 25 cm (11.81 x 9.84 inches). Rare etching and colour aquatint, printed from four plates, shows the Fall of the Bastille on the First day of the French revolution. This magnificent rare etching and aquatint printed in colour shows the attack on the Bastille in Paris during the first day of the French Revolution on July 14 1789. The etching was made by a French artist Laurent Guyot (1756-1808), who personally witnessed and sketched some of the events during the first days of the French Revolution. Guyot lived and worked in Versailles and Paris and had connections with British printers of the time. He was known for his colour prints. The extremely demanding printing technique of etching and colour aquatint was aiming to reproduce painted colours and make painting approachable for wider audience. This engraving is printed from four plates: black etching and aquatint, and red, blue and green aquatinted plates. All the Guyot’s works are rare on the market. References: De Vinck, 1552.

"Pendant longtemps, il n'y a rien eu de meilleur sur les proverbes" (Michaud). Il se compose de 500 proverbes et s'achève sur une table agencée selon l'ordre défini en préface : proverbes qui présentent une sentence ou un dicton ("à bon vin il ne faut pas de bouchon", "il ne faut pas se déshabiller avant de se coucher", etc), expressions proverbiales... qui consistent en un seul mot ("amphitrion", "coq-à-l'âne", "dévergondée", "écornifleur" etc), qui commencent par un infinitif ("demeurer entre deux selles le cul à terre", "sentir un peu plus fort, mais non pas mieux que les roses", etc), qui commencent par un substantif ou un adjectif ("délicat et blond", "vendeur de fumée", etc), qui forment une phrase complète ("ce n'est rien, c'est une femme qui se noie", "il a chié dans ma malle", etc) et qui consistent dans un adverbe ("entre chien et loup"). "Par proverbe, commente l'auteur, je n'entends poins ces expressions basses, dépourvues de sel, de grâce, de tout intérêt, en un mot, & justement nouées à la boue dans laquelle elles sont nées... Le proverbe est, [dit Erasme]... un mot célèbre & recommandable par une forme piquante". L'abbé Tuet (1742-1797), chanoine de Sens, avait prévu une seconde partie à cet ouvrage, mais les circonstance politiques en empêchèrent la publication. Un mors fendu, coins émoussés. Barbier III, 87.

        An Account Of The Pelew (Palau) Islands Situated In The Western Part Of The Pacific Ocean. Composed From The Journals And Communications Of Captain Henry Wilson, And Some Of His Officers, Who, In August 1783, Were There Shipwrecked, In The Antelope, A Packet Belonging To The Honourable East Ind

      London: Printed For G.Nicol, 1789. Third Edition. 4to. pp. xxvii, 378. folding engraved map, engraved frontis. portrait of Wilson, engraved plan & 14 other engraved plates (1 folding). Rebound in 3/4 boards with lettering on the cloth spine.The book and plates are in very nice condition throughout. The rag paper is age darkened, but there is little spotting. There has been some backing and reinforcement to the fold-out chart at the front (Please see photos).Keate's book on the discovery of the Palau islands was one of the most popular eighteenth-century books on the Pacific.In 1783, the Antelope was wrecked on an uncharted reef near Palau; the crew reached shore and were well treated by the natives. From the wreck they built a small boat which they managed to get to Macao, taking with them Prince Lee Boo, son of King Abba Thule (Ibedul). Over the coming weeks Captain Wilson of the Antelope became embroiled in conflicts between Ibedul and chieftans of other islands to in the northern archipelago.Le Boo travelled with them to England, but died soon after of smallpox. This account did much to reinforce the idea of the noble savage, but was also the main source for early knowledge of the Palau islands in Micronesia. It incorporates a life of Lee Boo in 29 pages complete with a poignant description of his death and the monument erected in his honour by the East India Company. The book concludes with a short grammar of the Pelew Islands.Of special interest is the large folding map measuring 560 x 355 mm., detailing the area now known as Micronesia. The map extends from the eastern coast of China, the Philippines, then the Palau archipelago, Guam and the Caroline islands.

Blumenblach (1752-1840), fondateur de l'anthropologie moderne, s'intéressa vivement aux problèmes posés par la physiologie. Tout d'abord, attiré par le préformationnisme, il s'en détacha, convaincu par les Theoria generationis de Wolf, et proposa une théorie novatrice de l'épigénèse comme étant la seule explication fiable pouvant rendre justement compte du phénomène de l'évolution.

Private library stamp to titles; four volumes with small stamp removed on first page of text; two pages with restaurations, a few very minor closed tears and one page with paper repair to upper edge affecting one line of text; occasional light soiling, but overall a remarkably clean and well-preserved set. First edition of the first dictionary of the Russian language, a monumental work prepared by the Russian Academy (Akademiia Rossiiskaia), founded in 1783 and based on the Académie française. The dictionary, in turn, was inspired by the Dictionnaire de l’Académie Française and its compilation was overseen by Princess Ekaterina Dashkova (1743–1810), a confidante of Catherine the Great and one of the leading figures of the Russian Enlightenment. Dashkova, who also served as president of the Academy from 1784–1794, initiated the project and enrolled the support of leading scholars and writers, such as playwright Denis Fonvizin and poet Gavrila Derzhavin. The historian Ivan N. Boltin, the mathematician Stepan Rumovskii, the natural scientist Nikolai Ozeretskovskii, the Serbian pedagogue Fedor Iankovich de Mirievo, and the statesman and collector of manuscripts Aleksei Musin-Pushkin, for instance, all contributed specialized vocabulary from their areas of expertise. Each volume contains a preface detailing the work on the Dictionary and members’ specific contributions. Aside from the New Testament and Russian proverbs, it frequently cites verse by the major eighteenth-century literary figures Mikhail Lomonosov, Gavrila Derzhavin, and Aleksandr Sumarokov. According to Princess Dashkova’s memoirs, she herself inspired the Empress to create the Russian Academy. Both were filled with a desire to “perfect” the Russian language, to cleanse it of unnecessary foreign influences, and to raise it on equal footing with other European literary languages. Catherine the Great soon issued the ukase founding the Academy, which calls upon its members to “perfect and glorify our language” [usovershit’ i vozvelichit’ slovo nashe]. Although Peter the Great had secularized the Russian alphabet some decades ago, in the late eighteenth century, the literary language was still in a state of great flux, torn between Church Slavonic, the vernacular with its regional variations, and Western European styles. The Academy Dictionary set out to establish stylistic norms: regional and colloquial expressions are used sparingly in it, and the number of foreign loan words is low. It adheres to what the Russian scientist and writer Mikhail Lomonosov termed the “high style” of Russian, in which Church Slavonic elements dominate over the vernacular. As the foundation of Russian lexicography, the Academy Dictionary served both as a standard reference work and as a stimulus for new linguistic developments. Scholars continue to debate the precise role of eighteenth-century linguistic theories and grammars. Beyond doubt is the Academy Dictionary’s symbolic significance for Russia’s nascent national consciousness and its rising scholarly and literary significance. The writer and historian, Nikolai Karamzin praised proudly noted that “The complete dictionary published by the Academy belongs to a number of phenoma by which Russia surprises attentive foreigners; without doubt our happy fate is a kind of unusual speed in all things." Published in 620 copies. KVK, OCLC show only the copies at Bayerische Staatsbibliothek and Oxford. Bitovt 2247. Sopikov 10385. Svodnyi kat. 6544. Not in Sm.-Sokol’skii. Provenance on request.

        Vie du Capitaine Cook, traduite de l'anglois du Docteur Kippis, Membre de la Société Royale de Londres

      Paris: Hôtel de Thou, 1789. In good condition with generous margins; the tapa specimens in fine condition.. Quarto, with added tapa cloth specimens (see below); French half vellum gilt. The first French edition of Kippis' life of Cook. Of great interest in this copy is a small selection of original tapa cloth specimens mounted at the front of the book: four pieces of cloth of differing designs, in fine condition, approximately 120 mm square, are hinged from an old piece of blue card which has been windowed into the front free endpaper, accompanied by an old note that we would date to early in the nineteenth century: "Toffes fabriquées par les naturels de l'Isle Owhyhee, une des Iles Sandwich où le capitaine Cook a été tué. On fabrique ces tissus en battant dans l'eau l'écorce de l'arbre appelé Tapa". The specimens are thus specifically identified as Hawaiian in origin though much of the cloth that was being shown around Europe was Tahitian in origin (see for example Alexander Shaw's Catalogue of the Different Specimens, 1787). This French version of Kippis' Life was published the year after the London original, with a significant introduction by the translator Jean Castera taking the form of a "Lettre du traducteur… à Monsieur Garat". Though in this issue Castera is not specifically identified, the smaller octavo version that came out at around the same time does name him. Kippis' book was the first biography of Cook. Using Admiralty sources as well as documents belonging to Joseph Banks, Kippis attempted a rounded account of Cook's public life: his early career on the St. Lawrence River, his surveying, and particularly his three Pacific voyages, are discussed at length. The long account of Cook's death was sourced directly from Samwell, whose account (exceptionally rare) had appeared in print two years earlier, with Kippis' help: "I procured its publication, that, if any objections should be made to it, I might be able to notice them in my own work. As the narrative hath continued for more than two years unimpeached and uncontradicted, I esteem myself fully authorised to insert it in this place, as containing the most complete and authentic account of the melancholy catastrophe, which, at Owhyee, befell our illustrious navigator and Commander…". As Holmes notes, this text is "the frankest and most reliable of all contemporary accounts". The appendix here contains a prose translation of Helen Maria Williams's ode to Tahiti, "The Morai".The cloth samples sit well in this context as Kippis does make various references to native cloths, as for example in his description of one of the Hawaiian visits (quoted here from the English edition): "Accordingly, on the third of February, being the day preceding the time which had been fixed for the failing of the ships, Terreeoboo invited Captain Cook and Mr. King to attend him to the place where Kaoo resided. On their arrival, they found the ground covered with parcels of cloth, at a small distance from which lay an immense quantity of vegetables; and near them was a large herd of hogs. At the close of the visit, the greater part of the cloth, and the whole of the hogs and vegetables, were given by Terreeoboo to the Captain and Mr. King; who were astonished at the value and magnificence of the present; for it far exceeded every thing of the kind which they had seen either at the Friendly or Society Islands."

        Descrizione Istorica dell'Estrazione della Pubblica Nave La Fenice dal Canale Spignon. In cui giacque circa tre anni totalmente sommersa

      Engraved allegorical frontispiece by Giuseppe Daniotto and seven fine & large folding plates by Daniotto. xxxii, 90, [2] pp. Large 4to, cont. marbled boards. [Venice]: Sons of A. Pinelli, 1789. First edition of this notable engineering work which describes the raising of the sunken man-of-war Fenice in the Spignon channel, just inside the Porto di Malamocco, and the central access to the Venice lagoon. The ship sank in April of 1783 and rendered the channel so narrow that it caused great difficulties for large ships to pass. Work began in 1785 to remove the ship and was complete early in the following year. The very fine plates, here in rich and dark impressions, depict the raising and clearance of the ship, employing a combination of hydraulics and an elaborate system of pulleys. This was a remarkable engineering feat. It required innovative methods that became standard practice in subsequent marine salvage operations. A very fine and handsome copy. Frontispiece with small pale ink stain at foot beneath image. ❧ Riccardi, I, 407-"Bella ediz.…interessantissima per gli studiosi della meccanica applicata alla nautica.".

        A New Geographical Grammar and Complete Gazetteer; Upon an Improved, Enlarged, and Scientific Plan, Wherein Those Parts of Astronomy Which Are Connected With Geography, the Use of Both Globes and the Nature, Use, and Construction of Maps

      Edinburgh: Martin McDowall and Company, 1789. Quarto. xiii, [3], 615pp. and 11 large folding maps. There are a few pagination errors as follows: page 67 mis-numbered 97; pages 172-173 repeated; page numbers 175-176 omitted and page 480 mis-numbered 840. William Gordon published important books on accounting and math but this was his most important work. The 11 maps were engraved by John Beugo (1759-1841) who was best known for his portraits of noteworthy English politicians, physician, artists and Robert Burns; however, he was consider the leading Scottish engraver of the day. His scarce map entitled "North America: from the best authorities " is housed at West Point. The maps are all nice with the exception of the Ireland map which has an old linen tape repair on the verso. Text is very clean. Bound in contemporary ¼ calf over marbled paper covered boards, red morocco spine label gilt. Some chipping to spine ends, joints strengthened. The only complete recorded copy we could locate is at McMaster University (OCLC).

        Tavern Licence Granted to John Swan by Mayor James Duane, 1789.

      1789. Eighteenth-Century New York City Tavern Licence [Taverns]. [New York City]. [Duane, James (1733-1797)]. [Tavern Licence Granted to John Swan Signed by Mayor James Duane]. New York, May 4, 1789. 6-1/4" x 7-1/2" part-printed document, inscribed in neat hand, docketed on verso. Moderate browning, faint horizontal fold line, another fold line to upper right corner, minor wear and a few small chips to edges, a few cellotape repairs to verso. An interesting item. * Swan's licence permits him to sell "strong liquors in his dwelling house," provided he does not "keep a disorderly Inn or Tavern, or suffer or permit any Cock fighting, Gaming or playing with Cards or Dice, or keep any Billiard Table, or other Gaming table or Shuffle Board, within the Inn or Tavern." James Duane was the first mayor of New York after the British evacuation in 1784. A Revoltionary leader, he was a deligate to the Continental Congress and a signer of the Articles of Confederation. After he completed his term as mayor in 1789, he became one of the first federal judges on the U.S. Circuit Court in New York.

        Händel's Oratorium Der Messias nach W. A. Mozart's Bearbeitung.

      Breitkopf & Hartel, Leipzig - Three parts bound as one: Erster Theil (108 pp); Zweyter Theil (96 pp); Dritter Theil (48 pp). Oblong quarto, contemporary marbled boards with manuscript title plate on front board. Boards and spine heavily worn, with one corner chipped from front cover. Internally in very fine condition with scattered foxing and a few pencil notations. First edition of the full score of Mozart's re-orchestration of Handel's Messiah, fully engraved. Köchel 572. "In 1789, at the request of Baron Gottfried van Swieten, Mozart, by all accounts a profound admirer of Handel, also re-orchestrated Messiah. It is often said that the subject of the re-orchestration was to compensate for the absence of an organ in the hall, but this is not borne out by what Mozart does, which seems more of a translation into terms suggested by the ordinary forces for these concerts; these included flutes, oboes, clarinets, bassoons, horns and trombones. The trumpets were demoted from melodic to harmonic instruments. 'The trumpet shall sound' and 'If God be for us,' which van Swieten called the 'cold aria,' were rewritten, the latter as a recitative" (Luckett, Handel's Messiah: A Celebration, 214).

        A View of the Cities of London and Westminster with the Suburbs and Circumjacent Country Shewing the steeples of all the Churches and as many of the Public Buildings as are seen from the gallery of the steeple of Islington which town appears in the foreground.

      Published as the Act directs by John Swertner No. 10 Nevils Court Fetter Lane,, London, 1789 - London from Islington Etching with aquatint, printed in blue. Title, artist-engraver, and imprint in margin beneath the image. Accompanied by a key-block with 140 references. The key-block carries the imprint: 'Published as the Act directs by I. Swertner Augt. 1st 1789.' Jan Swertner, born in Harlem in the Netherlands in 1746, was a Moravian minister. In the handbill described below he refers to himself as 'one not professionally an artist'. The prospect, nevertheless, is highly professional and, in the selection of viewpoint, novel. Rejecting the picturesque composition beloved of contemporary British artists, in which "the Cities themselves, by being so far removed from the back Ground become Objects of secondary Notice", he chose "after much Trial and Search" the lantern of St Mary Islington from which to make his drawings. From here the townscape was free of picturesque foreground detail; and in place of tree stumps and gesturing staffage Swertner provides us with a view of a North London suburb at a time of change and development.The foreground detail is not described in the key. Across the immediate foreground is Church Street (now Gaskin Street). In the centre tilers are depicted completing the roof of the chapel for the dissenting Islington blacksmith, John Ives. Later the building would be used by Lady Huntington's Connexion, and later still as a school. Church Street links Upper Street on the right to Lower Street (now Essex Street) on the left. Branching off Lower Street is Colebrook Row. Nearby are Bird's Buildings, where at a later date the prolific London topographical artist, Thomas Hosmer Shepherd, would live. Mid-centre is Islington Green and the backs of the buildings of Old Paradise Row. Camden Street can be identified to the east of it. The Old Pied Bull, said to have been the home of Sir Walter Raleigh, is on the right in Upper Street.A handbill issued by Swertner announcing the prospect's publication (copy in the John Johnson Collection, Bodleian Library) informs potential purchasers that it could be obtained from "the Publisher, No. 10 Nevils Court, Fetter Lane; Mr. Nichol, No. 58 Pall-Mall; Mr. Faden, No. 487 Strand; Mr. Stockwell, 191 Piccadilly; Mr. Wilkinson, No. 58 Cornhill; Mr. Cary's, the Corner of Arundel Street, Strand; Mr. Harris, No. 3 Sweetings-Alley; And other Printsellers.' Prices quoted are '10s.6d. - Proof Impressions, 16s. - Coloured, £1.1s. - Highly finished, in Colors, from the original Draught, by the Publisher, £1.11s.6d." The handbill recommends purchasers either to frame the view and key-block as one, or to mount the key on a panel attached to sliders at the back of the frame, that could be slid out or pushed back in again at pleasure.The print was reproduced as London Topographical Society Publication No. 124, printed by Curwen Press, and issued as an extra publication to members in the Society's centenary year, 1980.

        Cachier des doléances et réclamations des femmes.

      1789.Plaquette de 18 pages. [1] de titre, 18pp. Rarissime plaquette revendiquant le droit des femmes à être représentées aux États Généraux par des membres de leur sexe. Elle témoigne de la volonté de dépasser le simple évènement pour s'inscrire dans un mouvement politique à venir et défendre leurs droits. Elle marque l'émergence d'une revendication féminine. L'auteur dont la nature féminine semble au-dessus de tout soupçon, n'a jamais été identifié. Elle brave ici l'interdit d'exprimer ses doléances.La mise en parallèle revendiquée par l'auteur entre femme et représentation politique donne au sujet une position forte qui anticipe le mode de raisonnement tenu par Olympe de Gouges en 1791 dans sa Déclaration des droits de la femme. Tache d'encre recouvrant la couronne sur les armoiries de la page de titre.Petite restauration en haut des feuillets.

        The Rural Economy of Glocestershire; including its Dairy: together with the Dairy Management of North Wiltshire; and the Management of Orchards and Fruit Liquor, in Herefordshire

      - One folding engraved map. xxviii, 332 pp., [4] pp. of ads; iv, 401 pp., [11] pp. Two vols. 8vo, orig. cloth-backed blue boards, paper labels on spines, uncut. Gloucester: R. Raikes for G. Nicol, 1789. First edition and a lovely set in fresh original condition. Marshall (1745-1818), wrote a series of studies of farming in various English countries published between 1787 and 1798. The two volumes on Gloucester were the fifth and sixth of the eventual twelve volume series. "Modern agricultural historians have generally held that Marshall's works on English farming are superior to those of his rival, Arthur Young, as they are more systematically arranged and based on a more thorough knowledge of a district by personal residence there. Unlike Young, Marshall was cautious about experimentation, preferring rather to advocate the best practices approved by experienced farmers. On the other hand, he lacked Young's pithy and more readable style, and acquired fewer close contacts with the leading farming figures of the time. Marshall's career, indeed, suffered in some degree from his native bluntness and acid tongue, his pride, and his sensibility to slights. Nevertheless, from the independence of his views arose his remarkably early support for agricultural education, and his belief in the necessity of studying agriculture on a regional basis, both of which were ideas well before their time."-ODNB. Pages 323-32 contain a valuable "Verbal Provincialisms of the Vale of Glocester." Marshall was interested in dialects and he was the first to form a collection of words peculiar to the Yorkshire dialect. It was appended to the Rural Economy of Yorkshire and contains about eleven hundred words. Fine set. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Le costume francais 1789-1830. [France], np, nd.

      1789. 16 leaves with original gouaches. Original wrappers. Folio. Stunning collection of 16 original guaches with accompanying descriptive text (handwritten in an elegant hand in French and mounted on cardstock to versus opposite image they are describing) all by a skilled artist (one "J. Baten" as noted on cover). The monotone (with occasional highlights of color) fashion plates are executed in a striking white on dark grey heavy stock, lending the entire production a ghostly quality not out of place in these studies of bygone French fashions. Based on design and handwriting, we date most likely to the first half of the 20th century. The style of the gouaches themselves - somewhere between Deco and Nouveau - would lend credence to this assessment. 5 plates show men, one of a man and woman, ten of women only. Exceptional.
