        Memoire Envoye Le 18 Juin 1790, Au Comite Des Rapports de L'Assemblee Nationale, Par M. de La Luzerne, Ministre & Secretaire D'Etat

      Paris, Imprimerie Royale 1790 - In-4° reliure de l'époque constitué de deux plats de vélin sans dos. Très bel exemplaire, grand de marges non rogné, sans rousseurs. 4 ff. n. ch. (les deux premiers blancs), 117 pages pour le texte du mémoire (il est a signaler que les autres exemplaires connus comportent 71 pages, une version abrégée !). 67 pages pour les chefs de dénonciation, 1 p. bl. 3 pages n. ch. et errata. 1 page bl., 84 pages pour "Les pièces justificatives des faits énoncés dans le Mémoire" - - - suivi de : BLANCHE Hyacinthe - Louis à ses concitoyens" S.L.N.D. (in fine Coutances, Joubert, an III), 111 pages (petit travail de vers marginals à ce second ouvrage sans atteinte du texte). Le premier ouvrage est un des textes essentiels pour comprendre la situation et les troubles de Saint-Domingue juste avant et au tout début de la Révolution. Il comprend en effet non seulement le mémoire en défense du comte de La Luzerne, neveu de Malesherbes, ancien gouverneur des Iles sous le Vent devenu en 1787 ministre de la marine, mais aussi la reproduction de tous les chefs de dénonciation avancés contre lui par le Marquis de Gouy d'Arcy et ses amis de et la réfutation, article par article, de ces dénonciations. De très nombreux passages concernent le trafic des esclaves, la Luzerne étant même accusé (pages 59 de la seconde partie) " d'avoir favorisé et de favoriser encore les démarches des gens de couleurs pour obtenir le succès d'une demande (l'abolition) dont il sait bien que le résultat serait l'anéantissement de la Colonie". On y trouve aussi de nombreux détails sur le commerce maritime (avec des listes de bateaux), les exportations, les transferts de propriétés, l'état d'esprit des colons, etc . Le second ouvrage, en citant des centaines de noms de témoins, raconte les épisodes de la terreur dans une petite ville de Normandie, Carentan, ou H.L. Blanche était receveur du district [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        A Vindication of the Rights of Men, in a Letter to the Right Honourable Edmund Burke; occasioned by his Reflections on the Revolution in France. [Bound with:] (MACAULAY, Catherine). Observations on the Reflections of the Right Hon. Edmund Burke, on the Revolution in France. In a Letter to the Right Hon. the Earl of Stanhope. [And with:] (ANON.) Thoughts on Government: occasioned by Mr. Burke's Reflections, &c. in a Letter to a Friend.

      London: for J. Johnson; for C. Dilly; for G. Kearsley, 1790 - Three works bound in one volume, octavo (203 x 122 mm). Recent sprinkled calf to style, spine ruled gilt, red morocco label. A very attractive volume. Without the half titles to the second and third works and the finial advertisement leaf to the first and third works. First edition of each work, a highly interesting assemblage of three works relating to Burke's controversial Reflections on the Revolution in France, also published in 1790. "Mary's fervour for the principles of the Revolution developed rapidly and was unmixed with any doubts; having learnt her politics from the Dissenters, she continued to adopt their attitudes and followed their particular struggles sympathetically. On the 4 November, the anniversary of the 1688 revolution in England, Dr. Price delivered a sermon at the Old Jewery meeting house in which he defined the nature of civil liberty. This speech sparked Burke's infuriation and led to his Reflections. Mary read them at once, and seeing the principles she had so unhesitatingly taken up as her own under attack, and a smear set upon the good name of her beloved benefactor and teacher Dr. Price, she was in a fury of indignation" (Tomalin, p. 93-94). Wollstonecraft's A Vindication of the Rights of Men (1790) was the first of many replies disputing Burke's conservative assumptions. "The tone was impatient, the arguments sketchy. But it was redeemed by its dominant emotion, a humanitarian sympathy for the poor, and a passionate contempt for the wilful blindness of the privileged to what kept their system going" (Tomalin, p. 95). "It denied that all was well with the British constitution and state and urged the need for much reform; at the same time it drew attention to the trivialization of women in British society, the main topic of her next work, A Vindication of the Rights of Woman (1792)" (Todd, p. 728). Catherine Macaulay (1731-1791),historian and political polemicist, "also published an impassioned response to Burke's Reflections on the Revolution in France (1790). This gave rise to a brief correspondence between her and Mary Wollstonecraft, in which both praised the other's work. Her answer to Burke raised once again their very different interpretations of the revolution of 1688 and what, if anything, it had achieved." (ODNB). Wollstonecraft: Windle 4a.

        THE LIFE AND STRANGE SURPRIZING ADVENTURES OF ROBINSON CRUSOE, of York, Mariner. Who lived eight & twenty years all alone in an uninhabited Island on the Coast of America near the Mouth of the Great River of Oroonoque, Having been cast on Shore by Shipwreck, wherein all the Men perished but himself. With an Account of how he was at last as strangely delivered by Pyrates. Written by Himself. [Two volumes.]

      John Stockdale, London 1790 - London: John Stockdale, 1790. Two volumes. 8vo. [Leaves 21.3 cm tall.] xii [i.e. vi], [8], 389 pages and [vi], 456 pages, plus [14]-page publisher's catalog at rear of vol. II. Complete with 17 plates, being fourteen full page plates by Stothard, engraved by Medland, including frontispiece in each volume; an engraved title page, with vignette, in each volume, also engraved by Medland after Stothard; and a frontispiece portrait engraved by Medland for Chalmer's "The Life of Daniel De Foe," which appears in vol. II (pp. [367]-440). The second volume also includes a list of Defoe's works (pp. 441-456). Bound in full calf of the period or perhaps a bit later, with red and green leather spine labels, ornate gilt decorations on the spines, raised bands on the spine, gilt borders and turn-ins on the covers, marbled endpapers, and all edges gilt. Boards skillfully reattached by a professional binder with matching paper to inner hinges and one outer hinge; the other outer hinges being mended with very fine tissue. Both bindings are now sound, show little wear, and are very attractive on the shelf. Internally a good copy, with foxing to the plates and facing pages (including the titles), as is often the case. Some scattered foxing and soiling to other pages, mostly affecting margins and in no place affecting the legibility of text. A tiny bit of worming to gutters only of last several pages of terminal ads. Still a respectable set. FIRST STOCKDALE EDITION AND THE FIRST WITH THESE ILLUSTRATIONS. Thomas Stothard (1755–1834) was one of the most prolific illustrators of his day. "Many of his illustrations were for reissues, as in his celebrated illustrations for John Stockdale's edition of Defoe's Robinson Crusoe in 1790 (a sketch for 'Robinson Crusoe Building his Canoe' is in the Ashmolean Museum, Oxford) and it is clear that Stothard's images were an important factor in their popularity." --Oxford Dictionary of National Biography.

Auflage, in dem Meiners anschaulich Kritik und Zustimmung seiner Leser wiedergibt und dazu Stellung nimmt. Die Kupfer von Schumann, Capieux und Veith sind zum Teil nach Aberli gestochen. Sie zeigen u. a. Ansichten vom Hasli-Tal, Gletscher bei Chamonix, das Beinhaus bei Murten, die Teufelsbrücke auf dem Gotthard, Wasserfälle, den Grindelwald-Gletscher, Genfer und Bieler See, Nidau und Tells-Kapelle am Vierwaldstätter See.

      - Paris, chez tous les marchands de nouveautés et Debray (impr. de J.J. Rainville), 1790. In-8, broché, couverture de papier marbré ancien, (2), 41 p. Très rare édition originale et unique de ce programme politique utopique, projet de système d'organisation sociale collectiviste pour la France. "Personnalité historique étonnante, le révolutionnaire François Boissel est décrit par Jaurès dans son 'Histoire socialiste de la Révolution française' comme le précurseur historique du communisme ( ) et 'l’auteur le plus subversif de son époque’. Programme concret de réorganisation sociale et politique de la France. Boissel esquisse un plan d'achèvement de la Révolution par la voie d'un régime politique démocratique servant de prémices à un régime de communauté des biens ( )" (P.-A. Courouble). Boissel développe sa critique des institutions et des moeurs et d'un ordre qu'il dénonce comme "anti-social, mercenaire et homicide". Il expose son projet de "régénération de l'ordre social" sous forme de "Code" en 8 titres et 70 articles, code dont l'application devra conduire l'humanité vers son âge d'or. (INED, 579.

      Sold by J. Boydell, Engraver, [c.1790?], London - Oblong folio (282-385mm). 24 pp., containing a description of the cartoons of Renaissance artist Raphael Urbin [I-VII] and Index. 45 full-page finely engraved plates (numbered). Each plate shows two heads taken from Raphaelís famous seven cartoons depicting two events from the Gospels and five from the Acts of the Apostles. They are reproduced from those illustrations published in 1722 by Marie Maugis, but are placed in a different order. The text of Benjamin Ralph's "Description" concentrates on composition and the expressiveness of figures and heads, and exemplifies the 18th-century concern with "sensibilite." His index is an index of emotions, ranging from "Affection; Agony," to "Wonder and astonishment; Zeal." The plates are signed as painted by Raphael and engraved by N. Pigne or other engravers: C. Dupuis, G. Duchange, D. Beauvais, N. Dupuis, S. Thomassin, L. Desplaces, N. Tardieu, B. Lepissie. Only plate 4 is signed as drawn by Dorigny. Modern marbled paper covered boards with green leather backstrip; (plate edges somewhat brittle and marginal spotting most severe to title and rear plate, otherwise fresh and bright plates and clean, dark impressions).

        ADRESSE DE L'ASSEMBLEE PROVINCIALE DE LA PARTIE DU NORD DE ST. DOMINGUE, A L'ASSEMBLEE NATIONALE, DANS LAQUELLE ON PROPOSE LES MOYENS DE RAPPELLER LA CONFIANCE, LE CALME & LA CONCORDE, & DE FIXER L'UNION ETERNELLE DE LA COLONIE AVEC LA FRANCE [caption title]

      [Cap Français], 1790. 12pp. Folded sheets, unstitched. Dampstained. About very good. Untrimmed. In a half morocco and cloth clamshell case with cloth chemise. This apparently unrecorded Saint Domingue imprint is an official colonial document issued by the Assemblée Provinciale du Nord of Saint Domingue, in which the Assemblée Provinciale addresses the Assemblée Nationale with the aim of settling some of the unrest in the colony, caused in part by the French Revolution, but by this time spreading to slave revolts in the French colony. Sabin and Bissainthe both list only a Paris edition of this imprint (23pp.). No copies of this imprint are located in OCLC, and it is evidently unique. This imprint serves to illustrate the remarkable print culture of pre-Revolutionary Saint Domingue, by far the richest of French sugar colonies. From imprints handled by this firm we know that there were presses at Saint Marc, Port-au-Prince, and Cap Français, with probably two printers at each of the last two. Among imprints this firm sold to the John Carter Brown Library there is a Port-au-Prince edition of this pamphlet, issued by the official printer there, Mozard. The present piece, printed in Cap Français, where the Northern Provincial Assembly met, is in all probability the first edition. That two separate editions of such a work were issued in a Caribbean colony in the 18th century is in itself remarkable. That each survives in a unique copy illustrates how little we know about early Caribbean imprints. Another edition: SABIN 75040. BISSAINTHE 4382.

        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.
