ZHAO (or CHAO), Yi
1790. 43 parts in 16 vols. 8vo, orig. wrappers, new stitching. [China]: Zhan yi tang, Prefaces dated 1790 & 1791. First edition. Zhao (1727-1814), "was an important poet and historian from Yanghu. He was born poor and supported himself at first as a private tutor. In 1761 he passed the imperial examination and in a long career served in many official capacities. Upon being appointed the prefect of Zhenan, Guanzi province, in 1766, he showed himself to be a reformer, dedicated to helping the common people. From 1784 to 1786 he became the director of the Anting Academy in Yangzhou. In addition to writing a collection of 'poetry talk' (critical notes on poetry), he wrote a dynastic history, histories of military campaigns, and other important works. He was a friend of Yuan Mei (1716-1798) and was considered along with Yuan Mei and the poet and playwright Jiang Shiquan (1725-1785) one of the three greatest poets of Southern China."-Barnstone & Chou, eds., The Anchor Book of Chinese Poetry, p. 339. The present work is a collection of Zhao's miscellaneous poetry and writings on classical Chinese literature (especially poetry), history and historiography (one volume is devoted to a discussion of the Tongjian Gangmu of 1172), politics, dynastic history, philosophy, and various other subjects. One of the foremost historians of his day, he was among the first to turn his attention to the larger, more fundamental problems of historiographical method and social and institutional history.

[Various]
[Philadelphia, December 1790]. [3]pp. Bifolium. 13 x 8 inches. Laid paper with bell and crown watermark (Gravell: BELL.005.1). Expert mends. Folds; some losses at folds; lacking three-quarters of second leaf; good. Declaration of association signed by 51 Philadelphia merchants or firms against "Agents of European houses trading to this Country..." The merchants state plainly that these agents are "...importing on their own Account, and of receiving by consignment, large quantities of goods, and have also taken orders from persons in the retail business" thus harming "...the Interests of the regular Importers, as well as of the greater part of the Retailers..." Signatories "mutually associate" and agree to discontinue commissions to those agents. Many of the signers are listed in Clement Biddle's The Philadelphia Directory of 1791 as merchants, though a few are listed by their trade such as porter, cordwainer, and, in the case of Godfrey Baker & Co., as "stationers and book binders." Less than two months after this declaration, Congress chartered the First Bank of the United States to enable Treasury Secretary Alexander Hamilton's plan to create the necessary financial infrastructure to promote domestic and international trade and commerce. The Philadelphia merchants and importers seen here are banding together to protect their economic interests. Intriguing manuscript documenting economic unease in Federal Philadelphia, then Capital of the United States.

Ouvrage important, paru en pleine période révolutionnaire, précurseur de la notion de monument historique et de patrimoine national, il débute par une longue notice sur la Bastille. Pour Brunet cet ouvrage est mal organisé mais demeure intéressant car il décrit un grand nombre d'édifices détruits pendant la révolution (Brunet III, 1723). Exemplaire à grandes marges, non rogné en gouttière ni en queue. Reliure postérieure. Frottements, plis et quelques défauts. Deux cahiers mal placés dans les tomes III et IV. Dans le t.

[Anonymous]
1790. [1790]. Engraving with contemporary hand colour. A print showing the regimental band of the Grenadier Guards at St James’s Palace, the oldest band in the British army. The procession is made up of the musicians, the time-beaters, and the drummers, each wearing a different uniform. Of particular interest are the three black men in the group. It became a tradition in the British army to use black musicians as military bandsmen, a trend that seems to have started with regiments posted in the West Indies (Strachan). By the end of the eighteenth century “any British regiment with any pretensions to smartness had its corps of black musicians, gorgeously dressed” (Fryer). The Grenadier Guards first took on black musicians in 1772. The fashion was for so-called ‘Turkish’ band music, which required more percussion instruments, especially the cymbals and drums, preferably played by ‘exotic’ looking musicians, emphasised by the eastern costumes they were given. Accordingly, the musicians in the print are playing bass, tenor and side drums and cymbals, and wearing plumed turbans. One of them, named Francis, served until 1840, when he was honourably discharged. C. ffoulkes identifies a copy in the Crace Collection and gives the date as 1790. C. ffoulkes,’Notes on Early Military Bands’, Journal of the Society for Army Historical Research 17 (1938), p.194; Peter Fryer, Staying Power: The History of Black People in Britain, (University of Alberta Press, 1984), p.84; Hew Strachan, British Military Uniforms 1768-1796 (Arms and Armour Press, 1975), p.333.

115, [1 blank] pp.First(?) edition of an illustrated story book telling about the wonders of the world, with its title refering to the very popular motto of "travelling while sitting by the fire". It is written in the form of a dialogue between a father, a mother, their children, and some guests, often travellers, who visit the family. Their conversations discuss various cities and "wonders" from all over the world: Jerusalem, Bern, Gibraltar, the harbour of Rio de Janeiro, the Palais Royal at Paris, Egyptians rowing on the Nile, Naples and Pompeii, a huge iceberg seen by Captain Edward Parry (1790-1855), a water company at Malacca, all depicted on the double-page aquatints. Captain Parry's expeditions to the North Pole are briefly mentioned (pp. 35-36), as well as the eruptions of the Vesuvius in 79 and on 7 October 1727 (pp. 53-67). With a bookplate on paste-down and a manuscript note on first flyleaf. A few leaves slightly browned. Boards a bit thumbed and slightly worn along the spine. Overall in good condition.l NCC (2 copies); Saakes IX, p. 392; not in WorldCat.

[FLIP BOOK].
[96] engr. pp., including 12 blanks.A rare conjuror's "magic book" of uniformed muskateers and cavalry, also known as a flip book or blow book, from the reign of the Holy Roman Emperor Leopold II (1790-1792). Remarkably, even the original printed instructions, in German and French, are preserved. The instructions bear the drop-titles "Unterricht zu diesem Magischen Buch, mit welchem man zehen Veränderungen machen kann" and "Instruction pour ce Livre Magique, avec lequel on peut faire 10 Changemens". The conjuror holds the book by its spine in his left hand so that it faces the audience and flips through it with the thumb and fore-fingers of his right hand. He first does this using the lowest tabs and the book appears to be entirely blank. He then magically changes it (perhaps by blowing on it, tapping it, or saying magic words) and flips through it using the next tab. Now every page shows a Royal Prussian muskateer. He continues with the next tabs to reveal Imperial Russian muskateers, muskateers of the Holy Roman Empire and finally tents with flags. He then turns the book upside down and flips through in the same way. The book again first appears to be blank, then shows cavalry from Prussia, Russia and the Holy Roman Empire, and then the tents again. The Imperial muskateers have an "L" on their hats for the Holy Roman Emperor Leopold II, who reigned only from 1790 to 1792, and the other uniforms are also consistent with this date. Stafford & Terpak notes that no early English examples are known to survive and mentions no German ones, but notes that several Italian and Fren … [Click Below for Full Description]

London; Printed for J. Bird, No. 22, Fetter lane, Fleet street; and Simmonds, No. 20, Paternoster Row.; n.d. [1790]. London; Printed for J. Bird, No. 22, Fetter lane, Fleet street; and Simmonds, No. 20, Paternoster Row.; n.d. [1790].. Post 8vo; pp. [ii], 40; illustrated frontispiece (Barrington picking the pocket of J. Brown Esq. Also key with hook and joints, whalebone drag, knife with three joints, and ring with springs.), bound in period style half calf with marbled boards by Aquarius, title label on spine, title lettered in gilt, housed in a blue cloth box, very good copy. Ferguson 68. Very scarce: one of the first two primary 'biographies' of Barrington first published in 1790 after his trial, both of which were reprinted numerous times over 1790-91. The society pickpocket, George Barrington, the best-known of all convicts, was transported to New South Wales with the Third Fleet in 1791. Something of a folk hero in England due to the cheek and daring of his larcenous exploits, Barrington's trials, exploits, and largely mythical past gave rise to many pamphlet and chapbook accounts that found a ready market at the time of his trial and transportation. Subsequently, he was credited with a number of 'voyages' and 'histories' of New South Wales, especially when it was reported that he had been appointed superintendent of police at Parramatta. Although not written by the real Barrington, these many books and pamphlets are an important aspect of early Australian settlement, especially as regards the way the convict settlement was viewed in Britain.

He was born poor and supported himself at first as a private tutor. In 1761 he passed the imperial examination and in a long career served in many official capacities. Upon being appointed the prefect of Zhenan, Guanzi province, in 1766, he showed himself to be a reformer, dedicated to helping the common people. From 1784 to 1786 he became the director of the Anting Academy in Yangzhou. In addition to writing a collection of 'poetry talk' (critical notes on poetry), he wrote a dynastic history, histories of military campaigns, and other important works. He was a friend of Yuan Mei (1716-1798) and was considered along with Yuan Mei and the poet and playwright Jiang Shiquan (1725-1785) one of the three greatest poets of Southern China."-Barnstone & Chou, eds., The Anchor Book of Chinese Poetry, p. 339.The present work is a collection of Zhao's miscellaneous poetry and writings on classical Chinese literature (especially poetry), history and historiography (one volume is devoted to a discussion of the Tongjian Gangmu of 1172), politics, dynastic history, philosophy, and various other subjects. One of the foremost historians of his day, he was among the first to turn his attention to the larger, more fundamental problems of historiographical method and social and institutional history.Fine set.❧ Nienhauser, ed., The Indiana Companion to Traditional Chinese Literature, … [Click Below for Full Description]

NORTHCOTE, J[ames], [Engraved by] John MURPHY
London,: John & Josiah Boydell, Cheapside, & at the Shakespeare Galleryy Pall Mall,, 1790. May 1, 1790. Mezzotint. James Northcote (1746-1831), born in Plymouth he was apprenticed at an early age to his father who was a watchmaker. In is spare time the young James painted and sketched. In 1769, he left his father and set up a portrait painter; four years later he travelled to London and was admitted as a pupil into the studio and house of Sir Joshua Reynolds. In 1775 he left Reynolds, and about two years later, having made some money by portrait painting back in Devon, he went to study in Italy. On his return to England, three years later, he revisited his native county, then settled in London, where John Opie and Henry Fuseli were his rivals. He was elected associate of the Academy in 1786, and full academician in the following spring. The range of his output was considerable from history paintings such as the "Young Princes Murdered in the Tower" (1786), and the "Death of Wat Tyler" (1787); to genre scenes such as the "The Modest Girl and the Waton", although he is best remembered for his fine portraits and the natural history paintings. His prodigious output would number about 2000 works and he would amass a not inconsiderable fortune of £40,000. Dictionary of National Biography, vol. 41, p.190-193, 1895.

Philadelphia, , 1790. [together with:] An Explanation of the Magnetic Atlas, or Variation Chart, hereunto annexed; projected on a plan entirely new. 1790. Engraving, with original wash colour, a few creases flattened, some areas of restoration to upper and lower sheet edges not affecting printed image, [together with:] 8vo. x, [3], 14-46, 5, [1]pp., 2 folding charts, minor foxing to text, faint damp stain affecting portion of first four leaves, and minor chips to edges. The Mapmaker John Churchman (1753-1805) was an American mathematician, surveyor, mapmaker, and self-propagandist who held the official post of surveyor for Chester, Delaware and parts of Berks and Lancaster Counties, Pennsylvania. He first came to prominence for his ‘Map of the Peninsula between Delaware & Chesapeak Bays’ (1778). Some time in the mid-1780s Churchman became consumed by the problem of finding longitude at sea, which had challenged navigators for centuries. The search was given impetus in 1714 by the creation in London of the Board of Longitude, charged with assessing proposals and empowered to award a staggering prize of £20,000 (the equivalent of over £2,000,000 today) to whomever came up with the first viable method accurate to within 30 seconds over a voyage to the West Indies. The award ultimately went to John Harrison for his extraordinary chronometers, but in late eighteenth century America these were rare and expensive instruments, far out of the reach of ordinary mariners. Churchman developed the theoretical underpinnings and methodology for an entirely different solution. … [Click Below for Full Description]

[Women in Mathematics] Miss Vavasour
[Great Britain], 1790. Vellum binding with calligraphic signature in ink to front board. Ownership signature of the same Miss Vavasour to front pastedown in a late 18th century hand. Comprised of 83 handwritten pages in calligraphy, with writing almost exclusively confined to rectos of leaves. A fair copy rather than a practice notebook, the present was designed for ease of reference over time.An aristocratic Roman Catholic family with Norman lineage, the Vavasours had the means to rigorously educate their daughters as well as their sons. Yorkshire records suggest that the compiler of the present mathematical manuscript was Jane Vavasour (1752-1824), who would have been in her late teens or early twenties at the time of its compilation. Unmarried and well-schooled, a woman of her stature might be encouraged to take arithmetical training seriously, given that she'd be expected to run a complex household one day for her husband or her father. To this end, she includes sections on pure mathematics such as division and reduction, as well as applied arithmetic on wine and time measurements. In this sense, Miss Vavasour's training both reflects Enlightenment ideals as well the practical facts in women's lives that required expanded education. Tapping into the organized structures recommended by the likes of John Locke for designing commonplace books as reference materials, Miss Vavasour organizes her mathematical book for ease of use. Each section has a beautifully rendered title page, with a definition of the function when relevant. For example, the opening section Division … [Click Below for Full Description]

Nagakubo, Sekisui
Naniwa [Osaka]: Asano (Fujiya) Yahe, 1790. A Rare Large-Format Edition of Nagakubo Sekisui`s World Map, Based on Matteo Ricci`s `Kunyu Wanguo Quantu` ca. Bunka period [late 1790s - early 1800s]. A rare edition of one the earliest Japanese-made world maps, by famous Edo period geographer and Confucian scholar Nagakubo Sekisui (1717-1801). e map was based on that of Italian Jesuit priest and one of the founding figures of the Jesuit China missions, Matteo Ricci (1552-1610). Ricci`s original world map in Chinese characters (`Kunyu Wanguo Quantu`) was published in 1602 and introduced the findings of European exploration to East Asia. Sekisui, considered by many scholars to be the founder of Japanese geography, first published his large Japanese edition of Ricci`s map (one of the first in Japan to use longitude lines), with corrections, in around 1785. Several diff erent versions of the map have been recorded, and while numerous sources state that issues by Osaka-based publisher Asano are from around 1785, the Asano issue with no date and no other publisher names carved into the woodblock is considered by Japanese scholars to be the second edition of the map (and the first of the Asano editions), and is believed to have been published in the late 1790s or early 1800s. In any case, all editions of the map in this large size (92 x 163.4 cm) are rare. A scarce and early large-format edition of Nagakubo Sekisui`s most famous work, woodblock-printed in black and carefully hand-coloured. Re-backed. Small tears to creases, extremely minor loss to some areas due to wormholing. Overall n … [Click Below for Full Description]
