France, 1790.  A handsome dandy - of eight parts - sports a blue waistcoat trimmed in gold and a sash of flowers (one part). He is surrounded by his arms with lace cuffs (two parts), his upper legs in rose breeches (two parts), his stockinged lower legs with blue silk shoes with bows and gold trim (two parts) and his jaunty hat with white plumes and red bows (one part). And: THE (TRANSVESTITE) MAID. Etching on laid paper (leaf 311 x 224 mm.). France c. 1770.  A gay young lady - of seven parts - wears a cream dress with a red studded belt and flower chains pinned to her long patterned scarf and to her dress (one part). Her sleeved arms to which flowers are sewn (two parts), her upper legs with stockings tied at the knee (two parts) and her lower legs with gray shoes and gold buckles (two parts) are laid out around her. TWO 18TH-CENTURY HAND-COLORED TOY PATTERNS to be cut out and mounted on limb-shaped pieces of wood or cardboard to make puppets, popularly known in France as pantins. Always ready to dance, engage in high jinks or woo, they were the playthings of children and entertainment for the whole family.  When assembled, the Cavalier would stand about 60 cm. (23.5") tall, the more dainty Maid 52 cm. (20.5").  In keeping with contemporary custom, both characters would have been manipulated by males, so she is actually he. A charming couple all the same. In good condition (some surface soiling, two short blank marginal splits in the dandy).

Un'interessante testimonianza dei tentativi di alfabetizzazione minima nello Stato della Chiesa al tramonto dell'Ancien Régime. La tipografia di Pallade fu attiva a Fermo tra 1787 e 1811, dando alla luce opere di larga circolazione di carattere per lo più devozionale o autodidattico.

PLINY, The Younger
Sumptibus editoris excudebant M. Ritchie & J. Sammells, Londini [i.e. London], 1790. [4], 484pp, [2]. With a terminal errata leaf. Handsomely bound in contemporary navy morocco, ruled and lettered in gilt, A.E.G. A trifle rubbed. Marbled endpapers, later armorial bookplate of William Cavendish to FEP, inked ownership inscription of Cavendish dated 1824 and recent bookplate of Robert J. Hayhurst to verso of FFEP, internally clean and crisp. Gaius Plinius Caecilius Secundus, (c.61-c113), administrator of part of the Roman Empire. Pliny the Younger, adopted by his uncle Pliny the Elder, studied philosophy and rhetoric under Nicetes Sacerdos and Quintilian, eventually rising to the political court, where he prosecuted provincial governors on charges of corruption and extortion. He achieved the ranks of both Praetor and Consul (in 100 AD). Friend of Tacitus, Martial and Suetonius, Pliny was likewise a published author with these 10 books of letters, issued between 100 and 109 - collectively they form almost the entirety of Pliny's surviving work and offer a valuable insight into the Roman world of the 1st Century. They deal with various issues, including one of the few accounts of the eruption of Vesuvius made by an eyewitness (for the Younger Pliny had accompanied his uncle and adoptive father) to the area in 79 AD, describing the event in detail in a letter to Tacitus (VI). This handsome copy is from the library of Whig grandee and noted arts connoisseur William George Spencer Cavendish, 6th Duke of Devonshire (1780-1858). ESTC T133036.

Light scattered foxing, occasional light offsetting from plates, but interior very clean overall. Very good. John White, chief surgeon to the settlement in New South Wales, was also an accomplished naturalist and herein describes the animals he discovered during his exploratory journeys in the new colony. The fine colored ornithological and other natural history plates are most attractive. The journal includes an important account of a voyage from London to Rio de Janeiro, to Cape Town, and of other colonial voyages to Norfolk Island. Includes a subscribers list containing some seven hundred names, which speaks to the contemporary interest in the South Pacific in the wake of Cook's voyages. "White's account contains many circumstances omitted by Governor Arthur Phillip and others. The long appendix is very important as it describes the natural history of the new colony; the first major work of this sort" - Hill. Some copies, unlike this example, were issued with the plates colored. FERGUSON 97. WANTRUP 17. HILL 1858. NISSEN ZBI 4390.

London: printed by H. Baldwin; for J. Buckland, J. Rivington and Sons, T. Payne and Son [and 39 others], 1790. London: printed by H. Baldwin; for J. Buckland, J. Rivington and Sons, T. Payne and Son [and 39 others],, 1790. Elegant contemporary green calf 75 volumes, small octavo (157 x 95 mm). Contemporary green mottled calf, spines lettered and ruled in gilt, green speckled edges. With 32 engraved portrait plates, text printed on Whatman wove paper. Early shelf label to front pastedowns. A few minor instances of rubbing to spines, extremities a little burnished, old onlay repair to a couple of joints, bindings generally without wear; peripheral browning to endpapers and facing leaves but contents otherwise clean. A very nice set. Second edition, with 14 authors, including Johnson himself, added to the original selection of 1779-81. The ultimate literary success of Johnson's career, the prefaces written to append the vast collection of English poetry were quickly recognized as setting a new standard for English literary biography. "In particular, the surveys of Cowley, Milton, Dryden, Swift, and Pope exemplify Johnson's serious concern with the deepest springs of creativity, as well as his ability to explore with considerable insight some individuals whose character and work aroused profound antipathy in him. Even in an age of greater theoretical sophistication, his reading of mainstream poetry from the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries remains canonical, by reason of its attention to verbal detail, its decisive judgments, and its robust expression" (ODNB).

Hackert (Jacob Philip) [Engraved by Giovanni de Grado].
Naples, George Hackert, [c.1790]. . An engraving on laid paper. Image size is 54.5cm x 37cm, on a sheet measuring 59cm x 44cm. In lower right: "No. 3". Beneath image on the left side: "Ph. Hackert pinx:". Beneath the image on the right: "Gio de Grado sculp. / G Hackert direxit". Short tears to margins, longer closed tear at upper right (hardly visible), evidence of some ancient light staining, very good condition, trimmed to the plate mark. One of a series of engravings of Ports of the Two Sicilies, engraved by Giovanni de Grado from paintings by Jacob Philip Hackert. Others in the set include (Veduta del Porto di Barletta - No. 1) and (Veduta del Porto di Taranto - No.2), both in the collection of the Rijksmuseum, and visible on their site. This set is distinct from that engraved by Georg Abraham Hackert, also of Ports of the Two Sicilies ("Collezione dei Porti delle due Sicilie") - 5 views, published in Naples [c.1790 - 1800]. Both sets include the same text in the lower margin: ("Preso dal Quadro originale che sa parte della Collezione dei Porti delle due Sicilie ordinata da S.M. il Re"). The set engraved by Hackert was somewhat larger in format, by about 6 inches in both height and breadth. All these engravings are scarce in the marketplace.

1790. This is a eBay first. Three extremely rare almost impossible to find first edition American Bibles bundled together beginning with the 1790 William Young bible. This coveted bible is the second complete bible printed in English (Robert Aitken bible being the first). This bible was printed one year before Isaac Collins printed his family bible. William Young printed only about 200 copies making his bible one of today's rarest bibles on earth. This bible is complete minus the last page of Revelation and has both title pages. It also has "To the reader" page at the front of the book. It measures 6 1/2 X 4 inches as does the other two bibles. Both boards are attached to the spine and the spine is sound and the pages are tightly bound. It has some foxing, a few soiled pages, including a few tattered edge pages, and two pages from Genesis has some tape repair. Also, one leaf Jeremiah XI has been replaced with an exact replacement from a 1811 Matthew Carey bible. But overall most pages are in great shape making this s fine copy of the second bible printed in English. The second bible in this bundle Just like the William Young Bible is the super rare 1792 Hugh Gaine bible. This bible is complete except for leaf one of Genesis. Both title pages are present and like the Young bible some foxing, a few tattered pages howbeit no text loss, and in overall good condition. Now the third Bible in this bundle is the 1801 Isaiah Thomas and E.T. Andrews bible that was printed in Boston. The Bible like the other two is extremely scarce (none fore sale anywhere else as I can tell). This Bi … [Click Below for Full Description]

Half title of Vol I coming loose, some occasional toning and foxing but generally a very uncut good copy in original condition.||An amazing survival being uncut in the original publishers boards.Born in Stirlingshire, Bruce went to Harrow and then studied Law at Edinburgh University, a degree he never completed. After a brief marriage, Bruce travelled to Spain where he studied Arabic. On his return to England he came to the notice of Lord Halifax who offered him the tricky post of the consulate at Algiers. Since part of his remit was to survey the ancient monuments not delineated by Shaw, Bruce spent some time in Italy before travelling to Algiers in 1763.Subsequently he made an archaeological tour which prompted his trip in 1768 to Egypt which began the quest narrated in these volumes. In that year he travelled up the Nile as far as Aswan, visiting the ruins at Luxor and Karnak, before sailing down the Red Sea, arriving in Abyssinia in the following year. It was from here that he made his various courageous expeditions to what he considered to be the source of the Blue Nile (it was in fact merely one of its great tributaries).Whilst in Abyssinia he claims to have been made a district governor (a fact later disputed by Henry Salt) and due to the unstable political climate his life wa … [Click Below for Full Description]

Madrid. Imprenta Real, 1790. Work divided into ten volumes containing four basic topics: i.- the summary of Tricalet's life; ii.- an analysis of his principal works; iii.- the most notable sentences on morals and iiii.- discipline, with the exposition and defense of the dogmas of the Catholic faith, and the link between divine and apostolic traditions; in addition to the spiritual maxims drawn from his own studies. It is a useful work both for ecclesiastical gentlemen, who dedicate their lives to the Church, and for all the faithful who wish to know in depth all the knowledge of religion. Spanish translation by Fr. D. Francisco Vázquez. Abbot Pierre-Joseph Tricalet (1696 - 1761) was a French religious about whom there is little information except for the brief autobiography he gives of himself at the beginning of this work. He had a life dedicated to study and to the Church.

"Prima edizione" di questo saggio di Immanuel Kant ( 1724-1804), il più importante filosofo dell’età moderna. Si tratta di un breve scritto, pubblicato nello stesso anno della “Kritik der Urteilskraft” (Critica del giudizio), “fortemente polemico contro Johann August Eberhardt e interessante per il rapporto di Kant con la corrente leibniziana. L’illuminista tedesco Eberhardt infatti avversò il criticismo kantiano, che ritenne essere un documento assai curioso per la storia delle aberrazioni dello spirito umano e contro cui polemizzò a lungo nelle riviste "Philosophisches Magazin" e "Philosophisches Archiv" da lui fondate. All’affermazione dell’E., nel vol. I del "Magazin" del 1788, che il meglio del criticismo era già nella filosofia leibniziana, Kant rispose con questo saggio (Konigsberg 1790), in cui rileva l’incapacità della filosofia dogmatica di giustificare i giudizi sintetici a priori”.

A Paris, (de l'imprimerie de Moutard), 1790. in-4. 46pp. (1f.blanc). Cartonnage moderne genre ancien. Edition Originale de cet important exposé sur l'administration des routes en France. Mahuet, qui était ancien régisseur général des Messageries, revient sur l'histoire de l'administration des routes et chemins en France, rendant notamment un hommage appuyé à Turgot qui avait supprimé les corvées. Il explique ensuite en détail les raisons de la dégradation des routes et les moyens de les entretenir, ainsi que l'importance de l'adoption de certains principes par les voituriers comme par exemple celui d'établir le poids du chargement en fonction du nombre des essieux et de la largeur des roues. L'auteur se déclare notamment en faveur d'un modèle de péage incitant les usagers à limiter l'usure des routes tout en permettant de financer leur entretien.Très bon exemplaire. Quérard, V, p. 435.
