        SPEECH OF WILLIAM PINKNEY, ESQ. IN THE HOUSE OF DELEGATES OF MARYLAND, AT THEIR SESSION IN NOVEMBER, 1789.

      Philadelphia:: Joseph Crukshank,. 1790. 22, [2 blanks] pp. Stitched, top edge uncut, light uniform toning. Very Good plus. This eloquent speech is young Pinkney's earliest published utterance, delivered when he was 25 years old. Evans records only two published items by Pinkney, here a newly minted member of the Maryland House of Delegates at the beginning of an extraordinary career in law and government. DAB says, "At the session in 1789 he delivered a florid speech advocating the abolition of slavery, which, twenty years later, was published and distributed in Congress by the Quakers to challenge the consistency of his position on the Missouri question." But the goal of Pinkney's Speech-- remarkable as it is for its content, time, and place-- was not emancipation. Instead, he sought to revoke an old law prohibiting the manumission of slaves by will; in doing so, he enunciated an eloquent defence of freedom, asserting the innate humanity and equality of the Negro. Pinkney's opponents must regard "it as an act of the most atrocious criminality to raise an humble bondsman from the dust, and place him on the stage of life, on a level with their citizens." In fact, slavery was "founded in a system of disgraceful traffick...to poison the fair Eden of liberty with the rank weed of individual bondage!" But Americans must now blame themselves, not England, for slavery: "THEY strewed around the seeds of slavery; WE cherish and sustain the growth. THEY introduced the system; WE enlarge, invigorate, and confirm it." Chief Justices Marshall and Taney, and Justice Story, considered Pinkney, who appeared more than seventy times before the Supreme Court, the greatest advocate of his time. "He became the leading member of the Supreme Court bar: superb oratory, thorough preparation, supreme confidence, even his dandified appearance enhanced his reputation. His most noteworthy Supreme Court argument was in McCulloch v. Maryland, defining a strong union created by the American people and upholding the constitutionality of the Bank of the United States" [Oxford Companion to the Supreme Court 635]. FIRST EDITION. Evans 22800. Dumond 94. LCP Supp. 1724. Not in Cohen, Harv. Law Cat., Marke, Eberstadt.

        [AUTOGRAPH LETTER, SIGNED, FROM ALEJANDRO MALASPINA TO THE VICEROY OF MEXICO, REPORTING ON THE PROGRESS OF THE MALASPINA EXPEDITION]

      Lima, 1790. 3pp., docketed on verso. Quarto, on a folded folio sheet. Old fold lines, minor wear and soiling. Very good plus. A fascinating letter by Alejandro Malaspina, addressed to Juan Vicente de Guemes, Viceroy of Mexico, describing the year he has spent since parting from the viceroy in Cadiz, around the coast from Buenos Aires to Lima. The Malaspina Expedition (1789-94) was arguably the most significant Spanish scientific exploration performed in the 18th century, designed and modeled under the influences of those of the British Cook, and the French La Perouse. The letter is signed from Lima, detailing to the Viceroy the progress and route taken by the expedition during its eleven months and giving a detailed account of the places visited. Starting the missive on an odd note, Malaspina tells the Viceroy he wishes not to come to him as a traitor, but rather as someone who wishes to manifest his everlasting recognition for the many favors granted upon him. He continues the note expressing his joy for the success of the expedition thus far, carried out between Buenos Aires (the expedition first landed in Montevideo) and Lima, and the many astronomical and scientific discoveries made. Malaspina then promises to send a detailed account from Acapulco, and begins with the derrotero of the expedition, beginning at Montevideo, exploring the coast of the Patagonia, Puerto Deseado, the Falklands (even then disputed, and considered a point of geo-political importance), Tierra del Fuego, Cabo de Hornos, and up the Pacific, all the way to Lima. En route to Lima, they explored Chile (mapping the region, collecting zoological and botanical samples, and meeting with the Huiliches natives) and Valparaiso, where the corvettes separated to gain time - the Atrevida exploring the coast of Valparaiso, whilst the Descubierta sailed to the islands of Juan Fernandez. The vessels would reunite at the port of Callao, giving course to a prolonged stay in Lima of approximately three months, re-provisioning and repairing the Descubierta and the Atrevida. Their time in port would also give the scientists time to order to the vast amount of material collected so far. Malaspina then states how pleased he is that the abuses of the previous minister have been remedied, though he thinks it will be too difficult to reach the capital [Mexico], as it would take too much time away from the expedition, and the only delay in Acapulco will be to re- provisioning of the ships. In 1789, Malaspina and Bustamente drew up plans for this scientific circumnavigation which was to rival Captain Cook, the purposes being to chart the most remote regions of America and to observe the political state of America relative to Spain. Alexander Dalrymple assisted them with scientific instruments, a brilliant team of scientists was assembled, and ships were specially constructed. Surveys were made of the east and west coasts of South America, and they fixed the exact position of Cape Horn, correcting Cook's reading. On receipt of orders to investigate the apocryphal Strait of Anian, they sailed for Alaska and entered Yakutat Bay at the supposed latitude of the strait, where the Malaspina Glacier flows into the sea, and followed the coast to Prince William Sound and Nootka. Malaspina surveyed the coast south to California at Monterey Bay and crossed the Pacific in 1791. Two of his officers and Jose de Espinosa y Tello returned north in search of a northwest passage and published the charts and account of this secondary voyage in 1802. In the Philippines, New Zealand, and New South Wales, Malaspina continued charting before making an easterly passage around the Horn for Spain. "In spite of having commanded Spain's greatest scientific voyage of exploration to the South Seas in the eighteenth century, [Malaspina] is virtually unknown. He had enemies in the Spanish court who suppressed his reports, which were not printed until this edition of 1885. Some scholars consider the exploits of his five-year voyage as great as those of La Pérouse or of Captain Cook" - Hill. The full expedition report and crates of specimens were lost in the Spanish archives for nearly a century, until found by Novo y Colson. The addressee, Count of Revillagigedo (1740-1799), was Viceroy of Mexico. Malaspina writes to him in a friendly fashion, even though his orders were to investigate and provide an analysis of the viceroy's governance of the region. Revillagigedo was a reformer and one of the most efficient Viceroys of Mexico. Extremely rare; this is the only letter by Malaspina to have appeared in the market that we know of - which also remains unpublished - a fact made even more relevant for its important and interesting content.

        Descriptions and Sketches of some Remarkable Oaks, in the Park at Welbeck., to which are added, observations on the age and durability of that tree. With remarks on the Annual Growth of the Acorn

      London: J. Nichols, 1790. - 4to., (11 2/8 x 9 inches). 10 engraved plates by W. Ellis after Rooke (some spotting throughout)Original marbled paper boards (rebacked at an early date with cream paper, corners a bit worn). Provenance: with the library label of Scottowe Hall Library one the front paste-down. First edition, and including 9 portraits of some elegant and distinguished oak trees on the Duke of Portland's Nottingham estate: "the Duke's Walking-stick, the Porters, the Seven Sisters, the Green-Dale Oak, the Oak & Ash, the Parliament Oak, and the famous Ancient Oak in Birchland Wood, now called the Major Oak after Rooke, and purported to have sheltered Robin Hood and his merry men: "There is, about five miles from Welbeck, on Sherwood forest, and in the Duke of Portland's manor, a beautiful wood, or rather grove, consisting of above ten thousand old oaks, with birches intermixed, from whence it is called Birchland; the whole occupying a space of about eighteen hundred acres. On the north side of the great riding is a most curious antient oak, which, before the depredations made by time on its venerable trunk, might almost have vied with the celebrated Cowthorpe oak, for size. It measures, near the ground, 34 feet 4 inches in circumference; at one yard, 27 feet 4 inches; at two yards, 31 feet 9 inches. The trunk, which is wonderfully distorted, plainly appears to have been much larger; and the parts from whence large pieces have fallen off are distinguishable; the inside is decayed and hollowed out by age, which, with the assistance of the axe, might be made wide enough to admit a carriage through it. I think no one can behold this majestic ruin without pronouncing it to be of very remote antiquity; and might venture to say, that it cannot be much less than a thousand years old" (page 13-14).

        The Beggar's Opera. A large engraving by William Blake (1757-1827) after William Hogarth (1697-1764) of a scene from Act III

      London: Boydell, 1790. While the imprint is given as July 1st, 1790, the present copy may be a later printing. "The high point in Blacke's career as a commercial engraver was the commission for this engraving after Hogarth. It came from John Boydell, the leading print publisher of the day, probably sometime during early 1788. This, the largest and finest of all Blake's reproductive prints, was therefore in hand at just about the time he was working on his first relief etchings... Possibly the fee he received for the work tided him and his wife over while this new method was developed..." tate.org.uk/art/artworks/hogarth-beggars-opera-act-iii-engraved.. 450 x 583 mm. The image represents a performance at Lincoln's Inn Fields in 1727 and depicts Mr. Walker as Macheath, Mr. Hall as Lockitt, Mr. Hippisley as Peachum, Mrs. Egleton as Lucy, and Miss Fenton as Polly. Members of the audience included the Duke of Bolton Sir Robert Fagg, Mr. Rich the manager, and John Gay the author. Margins slightly worn, browned, and creased; trimmed to plate at upper edge; remnants of hinges to upper corners of verso.

        Pétition de l'équipage du Vaisseau l'America, à la Société des Amis de la Constitution. Séance du 4 Novembre 1790. Imprimée par ordre de l'Assemblée Nationale.

      Paris : Baudoin 1790 - In-8° broché, 4 pages. Exemplaire dérelié mais en très belle condition. En octobre 1775, six mois après le début de la Guerre d'Indépendance américaine, le Continental Congress réuni à Philadelphie, désireux de doter la jeune république américaine d'une marine de guerre, forme le Naval Commitee et le charge de créer et de développer la Continental Navy, ancêtre si l'on peut dire de la fameuse US Navy. Composé de trois puis de sept membres, ce comité devient en décembre de la même année le Marine Commitee, ses attributions étant étendues à l'ensemble des affaires maritimes. Sa mission est loin d'être simple. Il peut toutefois s'appuyer sur l'expérience des chantiers de construction de la côte atlantique qui, depuis un siècle, construisent des navires pour la marine britannique, notamment marchande, ainsi que sur les marins et officiers qui ont jusqu'alors servi dans la flotte de Sa Majesté. Parmi eux se trouve le jeune lieutenant de vaisseau John Paul Jones, qui sut résumer une évidence en une formule restée célèbre : « Without a respectable Navy, alas America ! » Pour constituer cette « respectable Navy », les membres du comité vont très naturellement s'inspirer de l'organisation de la Royal Navy, qu'ils connaissent bien. En matière de construction navale, pourtant, ils s'inspirent davantage des navires français, qui ont généralement meilleures réputations que leurs homologues anglais. . A cette époque en effet, toutes les grandes marines possèdent un nombre important de 74 canons, type de vaisseau apparu en France à la moitié du XVIIIe siècle et rapidement copié par les différentes marines européennes. Un seul vaisseau, nommé America, est finalement mis en chantier, en mai 1777, dans les chantiers de Portsmouth, New Hampshire. Sa construction durera cinq longues années, il sera le premier grand vaisseau de guerre de l'histoire de la marine américaine. Il est généralement admis que les plans de l'América sont de William Hackett. Envoyé à Portsmouth en août 1781 pour superviser l'achèvement du bâtiment, celui-ci s'efforce d'accélérer les travaux. En conséquence, la construction avance sensiblement, pas assez cependant pour pouvoir être terminé avant la fin du conflit. Car en effet, la fin de la guerre est proche, et le 3 septembre 1782, deux mois seulement avant le lancement du vaisseau et la signature des préliminaires de paix à Paris, le Congrès américain décide finalement d'offrir l'America à la France, en remplacement du vaisseau le Magnifique, détruit à l'entrée du port de Boston le 15 août précèdent. Cette décision est à la fois politique et économique. Politique car le présent symbolise la reconnaissance de la jeune nation américaine à l'égard de la France. Économique car, avec le retour de la paix, le Congrès devine très justement qu'il n'aura pas les moyens d'entretenir un navire aussi coûteux. Le 5 novembre 1782, le chevalier de Martigne, ancien commandant du Magnifique, reçoit au nom de la France l'America, qui vient tout juste d'être lancé. Le vaisseau quitte Portsmouth le 24 juin 1783 et arrive à Brest le 16 juillet. Les Français se rendent rapidement compte que l'America est en vérité un vaisseau raté. . En 1786, une inspection révèle que les fonds du vaisseau sont complètement pourris. Il est par conséquent retiré du service et démoli peu après. En 1787, la France construit un nouveau America, symbole de l'amitié franco-américaine, à Brest. Le vaisseau est lancé le 21 mai 1788 et présente les caractéristiques classiques d'un 74 canons type Sané. Il est pris par les Anglais le 1er juin 1794, lors de la bataille du 13 Prairial (capitaine de vaisseau Lhéritier). Intégré dans la Royal Navy sous le nom d'Impetueux (il y a déjà un HMS America en service dans la marine britannique à cette époque), il sera démoli en 1813. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

      8vo, early nineteenth-century tan quarter calf and marbled boards; spine with four raised bands, ruled, paneled and decorated in gilt, and lettered: M. DUPRÉ / SUR LES MONNAIES; mottled endpapers. Inscribed on a front blank verso by Narcisse Dupré, son of Augustin. Includes the following works: 1. Dupré, (Augustin). Observations présentées au comité des monnaies de l'assemblée nationale, (octobre 1790) par M. Dupré, graveur en médailles. (Paris): de l'Imprimerie de Didot le jeune, rue des Maçons-Sorbonne, no 13, 1790. 8vo, self-covered. 15, (1) pages [page 13 numbered 31 in error]. 2. Dupré, (Augustin). Réponse à l'écrit de M. Beyerlé, du 30 août dernier, dénonçant la fabrication des pièces de 15 sols. Par Dupré, graveur général. (Paris): de l'Imprimerie du Cercle Social, rue de Théâtre François, No. 4., (1791). 8vo, self-covered. 16 pages. 3. Dupré, (Augustin), and (Bertrand) Verlac. Observations rélatives au Mémoire que la Commission générale des monnoyes et le Ministre des contributions publiques ont présenté à la Convention nationale, le 30 octobre 1792. Sur la refonte des monnoyes et les nouvelles empreintes. Présentées à la Convention nationale, par Dupré graveur général des monnoyes de France. Rédigées par Verlac homme de loi. No publication information given, 1793. 8vo, self-covered. (2), 74 pages; errata leaf; one large folding table. Carefully preserved, with only minor rubbing to the spine and redundant folds and spotting to the large folding table in the final work. Fine. A remarkable volume of exceptional historical interest, from the library of Augustin Dupré. Bound together herein are three very rare publications by this renowned artist relating to his role in French coinage. Dupré (1748-1833), remains one of the most important engravers of French coins in modern history, and his designs for early U.S. medals (mostly notably the Libertas Americana) have ensured his lasting fame in the western hemisphere. An engraver by trade, Dupré began to work on medals in the early 1770s and quickly became adept. Notable works include several classic medals of the Comitia Americana series: those for Nathanael Greene, John Paul Jones and Daniel Morgan, as well as the related Diplomatic Medal and the Libertas Americana medal. Had the last been his only contribution to the field of American medals, he would justly have remained famous in this country. During the French Revolution, however, he became interested in applying his ideas to the new national coinage that was under discussion. On September 11, 1790, the National Assembly appointed a seven-member committee charged with studying the laws of coinage (Saunier, Augustin Dupré, page 48). Dupré wrote his October 1790 Observations addressed to the Comité des Monnoies de l'Assemblée Nationale, a short work that was printed at least three times, two of which should be considered drafts (only the final version is present in this volume). His neoclassical designs would win him fame and admiration that continue to this day. Dupré's rise to prominence in a period of political upheaval made him enemies, however, and he was seriously threatened during the Terror when he was denounced by one Beyerlé, a former counselor to the parliament at Toulouse, who accused Dupré of poorly managing his responsibilities and producing inferior coinage. Dupré's printed response is the second work present in this volume, and is of considerable importance. He not only defends himself, but insists on reforms he had proposed earlier. The final work present here was written with educational reformer Bertrand Verlac, an influential "homme de loi" and functionary with the Ministry of the Navy. It is a detailed response to a report to the Convention Nationale on the redesign of the coinage. Written at the height of the French Revolution, it is an important statement of Dupré's beliefs and artistic vision, very much tempered by the practicalities of doing business in such an atmosphere without literally losing one's head. Dupré managed to retain his position through these turbulent times, continuing in the role of graveur général des monnaies until being replaced by Pierre-Joseph Tiolier in 1803. All three of these works are rare, being known primarily from institutional holdings and being virtually unheard of on the secondary market. Little-known in the numismatic world, they are rarely listed in the usual bibliographies (Engel & Serrure list only a preliminary draft of the first work present here as 2376). They are unmentioned by Lipsius at the end of the eighteenth century and by Dekesel at the beginning of the twenty-first. O.-C. Reure's Bibliothèque des écrivains foréziens ou qui se rattachent au Forez par leur résidence ou leurs fonctions jusqu'en 1835 (Montbrison, 1914) lists all three works bound in this volume (pages 282-283), as do a few other specialized French bibliographies (though they remain unlisted by Brunet). They were virtually unknown to modern numismatists until the April 2, 2014 sale of the Dupré archives by Bonhams in New York, of which this was part. Our 2015 New York Book Auction included a similar volume from the Dupré archives, a compilation of the three works present here along with two earlier printed drafts of the first work. It brought $5500 plus the buyer's premium.

        The Beggar's Opera. A large engraving by William Blake (1757-1827) after William Hogarth (1697-1764) of a scene from Act III

      London: Boydell, 1790. While the imprint is given as July 1st, 1790, the present copy may be a later printing. "the high point in Blacke's career as a commercial engraver was the commisison for this engraving afgter Hogarty. It came from John Boydell, the leading print publisher of the day, porobably sometime during early 1788. This, the larges and finest of all Blake's reproductive prints, was therefore in hand at just about the time he was working on his first relief etchings... Possibly the fee he received for the work tided him and his wife over while this new metjhod was developed..." tate.org.uk/art/artworks/hogarth-beggars-opera-act-iii-engraved.. 450 x 583 mm. The image represents a performance at Lincoln's Inn Fields in 1727 and depicts Mr. Walker as Macheath, Mr. Hall as Lockitt, Mr. Hippisley as Peachum, Mrs. Egleton as Lucy, and Miss Fenton as Polly. Members of the audience included the Duke of Bolton Sir Robert Fagg, Mr. Rich the manager, and John Gay the author. Margins slightly worn, browned, and creased; trimmed to plate at upper edge; remnants of hinges to upper corners of verso.

        Scheveningen - naar Van de Velde.

      LA PLAGE DE SCHEVELINGENKopergravure vervaardigd rond 1790 door F.B. Lorieux, naar ontwerp van Jacques François Swebach die op zijn beurt een schilderij van Adriaen van de Velde (1636 '" 1672) natekende. Later met de hand gekleurd. Afm. (afbeelding) ca.: 23,5 x 33 cm; (lijst) 47 x 53,5 cm. Adriaen van de Velde"s werken geven gewoonlijk voorstellingen uit het boeren leven weer, tevens was hij bekwaam kustlandschapschilder. Hij registreerde het losse, vrije leven van de boerenstanden in een tijd dat de hogere standen weinig om hen gaven en dat het godsdienstige leven afnam. Pieter Brueghel was hem daarin 100 jaar eerder reeds voorgegaan. Van de Velde geeft het stille boerenleven weer en vertelt het verhaal van hun dagelijks bestaan.Op dit tafereel rijdt een indrukwekkende koets over het vredige strand van Scheveningen met een ruiter op het eerste paard en de voerman die zijn zweep laat knallen. Een van de bedienden rent achter twee jachthonden aan die in het zand spelen. Het is de koets van de jonge Prins van Oranje (Willem III), toekomstig Stadhouder en Koning van Engeland. Het is laag tij, dorpelingen lopen over het strand, kinderen spelen en een garnalenviser komt terug van de vangst met een groot schepnet. Op de duin het houten "Kalhuis" daarachter de kerktoren van Scheveningen.Prijs: € 650,- (incl. lijst, BTW margeregeling).

        Partitione della Nina Osia La pazza per amore, di Paesiello

      Paris?: Pleyel or Carli , ca 1790. Original edition, Robinson 178,Variant 6. Opera in one act with overture and fifteen scenes. Not in RISM. This one act, 15 scene version of the score is important because it shows features of the two-act version that may have already been in production . Since the final form of the opera was not yet determined, this score may contain scoring lost to later editions. (See Robinson, below). Folio. Music partition. Full score entirely engraved, Italian text. 273pp., with p.1 serving as title page, as in other copies located. Pages 106 and 107 with old stain removed at margin. Contemporary boards with vellum tips, leather label. Spine rubbed and crack to vellum mended. The plot depicts a young woman who is forced by a repressive male ward to abandon her lover for a wealthier suitor, whereupon the girl promptly goes mad. The girl makes a joyous return to sanity when she is finally reunited with her lover, and her suitor releases her to marry the boy she loves. Nina, called a “commedia in prosa,” was performed for the first time at the Teatro del Reale Sito di Belvedere in Caserta, San Leucio on June 25, 1789 in honor of a visit from Queen Maria Carolina of Sicily. The opera was first created as a one-act version with libretto by Giovanni Battista Lorenzi based on librettist Marsollier des Vivetičre’s text accompanying Nicolas-Marie Dalayrac’s Nina, ou La folle par amour (1786).** The first version of Nina had several unusual features. Instead of the usual two or three-act format, it had only one act, designed to run without a break. Furthermore, it has spoken dialogue between the ensembles and arias instead of recitative. The reason for this is because it was modeled on a French opéra comique which, unlike Italian, characteristically had spoken dialogue between the lyrical items. The printed libretto for the 1790 production makes it clear that the opera was thought too long to be performed without a break, so it was split into two halves. Both Lorenzi and Paisiello revised Nina into a two-act work. To provide a satisfactory finish to Part One, Paisiello added a new ensemble. He also added a shepherd's song just before the new ensemble, and an extra aria for Giorgio early in Part Two. It was presented at the Teatro dei Fiorentini in Naples in the autumn of 1790. It is this version of the opera that became the basis of most subsequent productions in other theatres.*** Michael Robinson, writing at length about the opera, notes that the success of Nina was considerable. Da Ponte reworked the text and Joseph Weigl added new music for a Vienna production in 1790. In Paris, 1791, Cherubini supplied recitatives and an aria. Translated versions were performed in Mannheim, Prague, St. Petersburg, Warsaw, and London. It was taken up by most of the significant theatres in Italy (remaining popular until 1845), and often performed by the finest singers, such as Rossini’s wife, Isabella Colbran, and Giuditta Pasta, considered one of the greatest sopranos of her day. Grove notes that Nina was “important because of the exceptional acclaim it received during its composer’s lifetime and because it is a locus classicus of 18th-century sentimental comedy in music” (99). According to historian Martha Feldman, Paisiello’s version of Nina was “the acme of sentimental opera . . . with (as an anonymous reviewer puts it) ‘a celestial harmony, an exceptional expressivity . . .’” (380). The success of Nina may be attributed to the musical characterization of the title character, whose agony drove deeply into the heart of the rising bourgeois class, one with a penchant for sentimentality and sincerity. Quoting Francesco Florimo, “Neapolitan viewers of Nina cried out to the heroine in desperate attempts to console her.” Giovanni Paisiello, Italian composer, was educated by the Jesuits and, as a student, was known for his beautiful singing voice. He wrote his earliest operas in 1763, La Pupilla and Il Mondo al Rovescio. He worked in Naples and was invited to St. Petersburg by the Empress Catherine II as chapel master, where he stayed for eight years. After 1784, as Ferdinand IV’s chapel master, he composed some of his best operas in Naples, including Nina. Paisiello is known to have composed 94 operas which are recognized for their graceful and beautiful melodies. *Note from Bibliotheque Nationale catalogue entry: “Paisiello, Giovanni (1740-1816).

Publication: Paris: I.ce Pleyel & fils aîné, [s.d.] Description matérielle: In-fol., 273 p. FRBNF43187189; Also located is a Paris, Carli edition. **Nicolas-Marie Dalayrac’s Nina, ou La folle par amour given at the Comédie-Italienne in Paris in May 1786. The sentimental story of a girl sent mad by love had already been intensely cultivated during the previous decades. Dalayrac’s French librettist Marsollier des Vivetičres apparently made use of a true story which had become the basis for “La nouvelle Clémentine” in F.T.M. Baculard d’Arnaud’s Délassements de l’homme sensible (1783), and which had perhaps been available to Laurence Sterne for his figure of Maria de Moulines in The Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy, Gentleman (1760-67) and A Sentimental Journey Through France and Italy (1768). Since 1940, the work has been regularly performed in Italy, most recently with Cecilia Bartoli in the lead role. It has also been staged at the Zürich Opera House with great success. ***A third version substituted sung recitatives (the music probably not by Paisiello) for the spoken dialogue, and was performed at Parma during the Carnival of 1793 and at the Fiorentini in 1795 (Robinson). References: The New Grove Dictionary of Music and Musicians XIV (1980). Feldman, Opera and Sovereignty: Transforming Myths in Eighteenth Century Italy (2007); Robinson, Micheal F. Paisiello: a Thematic Catalogue of his Works. (1991). #178. Variant 6: 1 act variant of version II plus - in scene 6 an accompanied recitative for Nina. Simple recitatives occur in place of spoken dialogues. The singing roles are those of version 1 and 2. Susana is called Elisa.

Atlas: Minimal tear to gutter margin, hardly perceptible, on plates 18-21 of the first series.- // Prov.: No data.- // Appointed as consul in Algiers in 1763, the Scotsman James Bruce (1730-1794) travelled through the Maghreb before undertaking a great journey of archaeological exploration in Syria, followed by another in search of the source of the Nile, whose actual location had been much under discussion. On September 18, 1769, he disembarked in Massasouah, Ethiopia, with the destination of Gondar, where he arrived almost five months later. He then began down the Blue Nile (Abbai to the Abyssinians, Bahr-el-Azraq for the Arabs, Astapus for the classics), as others had done before, until reaching the lagoons' source, enter Abyssinia from there on a journey that was questioned for a long time. Seeing how dangerous and risky it was to enter a kingdom shut off to foreigners with a penalty of death, surrounded by hostile tribes and where the sovereign was revered as a real life living god, Bruce earned, after approaching several dignitaries form the court, the protection of the queen. The King held Bruce against his will to ensure that he paid them services against the rebels and the palace's intrigues. He was retained for so long, three years after he began his search for the source of the Nile he was still forbidden to leave. When finally, committing to return, he was granted permission, he went back to Europe. First to Paris, where he met with Buffon, and later, in June 1774, to London, to find out that his family, as they thought him gone forever, had been given his properties, and had divided them between them... The printing of this appreciated first French edition in quarto (there was a simultaneous one in octavo), was begun the same year as the original in English(1). It is worth mentioning that the work, along with the adventures of his journey and the expositions on natural history, archaeology and cultural characteristics, includes a history of Abyssinia translated from native texts, as well as the first ever published engraving of a two-horned rhinoceros. The work is often presented as Voyage aux sources du Nil, even though it is neither the title on the cover or on the title page. As there are copies missing the notice to the binder (which was published in Volumes I, III, IV and the Atlas) there is also confusion about where the engravings should be bound, adding to this that together with the first volume a set of 7 engravings of Ethiopian writing was included without any indication about where this set should be bound. And it is usually said that the Atlas should contain 66 prints (Brunet and Graesse raised this figure to 88), although this is somewhat uncertain given that the Atlas itself specifies that it must contain a map and 43 explanatory engravings in Volume 5 as well as a map, and 19 explanatory engravings in Voyages of Paterson, included at the end of that volume. In total 64 plates. Interestingly, when announcing the publication of the final part of the work, in February 1792, the editors said in the L'Esprit des Journaux, François et Étrangers:  On vient de mettre en vente chez Plassan (...) le Ve & dernier volume du Voyage en Nubie & Abyssinie, par James Bruce. Ce volume est accompagné d un atlas contenant 65 planches & cartes: on joint à ce volume IV voyages dans la Caffrerie & chez les Hottentots, par le liuetenant Paterson, avec 19 planches. He implied that there should be 65 + 19 engravings, when the 19 included in the count of 65, which is not then 65 but 64. The difference would be that the map corresponding to Vol. 2 (indicated on the engraving itself) was supplied later, with the Atlas, as there are many copies that have it bound there. The Atlas must therefore have 64 prints, and both Volumes 1 and 2 contain one map each. Absolutely complete with all half-titles and title pages, and with all the maps and prints.- // (1) ""Travels to discover the source of the Nile, in the years 1768, 1769, 1770, 1771, 1772, and 1773 ..."".
