        Observations Made on a Tour From Bengal to Persia in The Years 1786-7 With a Short Account of the Remains of the Celebrated Palace of Persepolis; and Other Interesting Events

      London, T. Cadell 1790 - London: T. Cadell,1790. Second Edition (1st UK Edition - first published in Calcutta in 1788). 8vo - 21.9 cm. [viii], 351pp., (1pp Ñ publisher's advertisement). Handsome period style brown gilt tooled half calf with marbled boards and red gilt morocco label. A handsome and complete copy in Near Fine condition. Francklin spent a period of eight months between 1786 - 1787 living with a Persian family in Shiraz, and this experience together with several additional trips during the same period, comprises the substance of this narrative. An officer of the East India Company, Francklin was an accomplished middle eastern traveller. His work encompasses customs, religion, poetry, and painting with aplomb, and provides a concise account of the recent political history of Persia. William Francklin (1763-1839) was an distinguished officer of the East India Company and a prominent orientalist, and in later years he served as librarian of the council of the Royal Asiatic Society. He was also a member of the Asiatic Society of Bengal. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Drammi scelti di Apostolo Zeno

      Venezia: presso Antonio Zatta e figli, 1790 - In-8 (6) 328. Piena pergamena. A cura di Andrea Rubbi, cfr. introduzione. Contiene con proprio occhietto: Sirita. Dramma di Apostolo Zeno; I due dittatori; Atenaide; Flavio Anicio Olibrio. Incisori delle vignette: la prima di Daniotto, dieci sottoscritte G.Zuliani, tre di Giovanni Maria Pian. Ritratto di Apostolo Zeno sul frontespizio calcografico. Apostolo Zeno (Venezia, 11 dicembre 1668; Venezia, 11 novembre 1750) è stato un poeta, librettista, giornalista e letterato italiano. Fu nel 1691 tra i fondatori dell'Accademia degli Animosi. Nel 1695 compone il primo libretto d'opera, Gl'inganni felici, che ottiene un grande successo rendendolo librettista alla moda. Dal 1705 collabora con Pietro Pariati, riservandosi le scene teatrali e lasciando al Pariati la composizione dei libretti. Iniziò l'attività di giornalista letterario nella Galleria di Minerva, assumendone poi anche funzioni direttive ma ne prese le distanze quando si rese conto di non essere riuscito a darle l'impronta desiderata, tanto che finì col definirla una scempiaggine. Nel 1710 insieme al fratello Pier Caterino Zeno, Scipione Maffei e Antonio Vallisneri fondò il Giornale de' letterati d'Italia, sostenendo che era necessario che gli italiani si facessero essi il loro giornale palesando che il buon senso, la dottrina e l'ingegno non vennero mai tra noi e che ora più mai fioriscono e s’avvivano. Il trimestrale ebbe collaboratori di prestigio come Scipione Maffei, Antonio Vallisneri, Eustachio Manfredi, Ludovico Antonio Muratori, Giovanni Battista Morgagni, Giambattista Vico, Bernardino Ramazzini: mosso soprattutto dalla volontà di giovare agli studi italiani, ebbe un buon successo. Chiamato Apostolo Zeno all'incarico di poeta cesareo alla corte imperiale di Vienna, nel 1718, il fratello Pier Caterino ne assunse la direzione fino al 1732 e ne rese annuale la periodicità. A Vienna rimase fino al 1729, quando gli subentrò Pietro Metastasio. Tornato a Venezia, si dedicò soprattutto a opere di erudizione e alla numismatica. 18mo secolo

Occasional light spotting and offsetting from plates throughout, occasionally some other kind of spot; a number of upper margins affected at very top edge by a sometime intrusion of smoke or soot, generally both light and limited, and a small area of waterstaining to lower inner margins of central leaves of vol. I. Life of Defoe with a few pencilled marks of emphasis. A sound and very attractive Crusoe.

Zweyte verbesserte Auflage. - Gest. Nebentitel: Die Gemalte Welt oder der gemeinnützige Lateiner. Leipzig, C. Weigel u. Nürnberg, A. G Schneider, 1790. Mit 50 (inkl. gest. Titel) Kupfern auf 49 Tafeln. XII, 151 S. Ockerfarbener Pappbd. d. Zt., Deckel von schmaler vergold. (oxydiert) Bordüre eingefasst; vord. Gelenk leicht beschabt, Ecken etw. bestoßen. Pilz S. 340f. (unter Johann Georg Lederer); Brüggemann/Evers 504 (4. Aufl. v. 1802); Monschein 81 (ausführlich). - Sehr seltenes, reizend illustriertes Werk. "In 76 Kapiteln werden Himmel und Erde, die Elemente, Fauna und Flora, Schiffahrt, Instrumente, das Haus und seine Teile, Musik usf. in lateinischer Sprache erklärt. Jedes Kapitel enthält am Ende ein deutsch-lateinisches Glossarium, in dem die noch unbekannten Vokabeln angeführt werden" (Monschein). Zur Entstehung schreibt der Autor in der "Vorrede": "Das viele Nachfragen nach einem lateinischen Lesebuch mit Kupfern für kleine Anfänger, das ihren iugendlichen Bedürfnissen entspricht und doch keinen großen Aufwand verursachet, hat mich auf den Gedanken gebracht, gegenwärtiges Werkchen herauszugeben. . Eigentlich besteht es aus gemeinnüzigen, leichten Stücken, die aus des berühmten Comenii Orbe Picto, den der gelehrte Herr Rector Lederer in Sachsen, vor zwey Jahren ganz umgearbeitet und verbessert, aber ohne Kupfer, herausgab". Monschein weist darauf hin, dass es sich bei "Rektor Lederer aus Sachsen" um Johann Christian Lederer aus Jessen (bei Wittenberg) handeln muss und nicht, wie Pilz angibt, um den Namensvetter Johann Georg aus Nürnberg. Da der erste Band von Johann Peter Voits 1789 erschienenen "Unterhaltungen aus der Naturgeschichte" mehr oder weniger eine Übersetzung des "Kleinen Lateiners" darstellt und auch alle Kupfer übernommen wurden, vermutet sie weiter zumindest eine Mitautorschaft Voits an vorliegendem Werk. Etwa die Hälfte der hübschen, meist nach Gabler gestochenen Kupfer zeigen Tiere und Pflanzen, die übrigen teils sehr dekorative Berufs- und Werkstattdarstellungen (Buchbinder, Papiermacher, Glashütte, Uhrmacher, Küche, Garten- u. Ackerbau usw.). Sowohl Text- als auch Tafelumfang variieren bei allen in den Bibliographien genannten Exemplaren. Monschein nennt X, 150 S. (bei uns XII, 151 S.) und 50 num. Kupfer (samt Nebentitel) u. erwähnt auch eine mit "52" nummerierte Tafel. In unserem Exemplar sind die Tafeln wie folgt nummeriert u. angeordnet: Nebentitel, Taf. 1-4, 6-23, 51-52 u. 24-47. Tafel 19 ist eine gefaltete Doppeltafel. Die Tafeln 51 u. 52 sind zu den richtigen Kapiteln gebunden. Bis auf das Exemplar bei Monschein haben alle, soweit Angaben gemacht werden, in den o.a. Bibliographien genannten Exemplare (gleich welcher Auflage) weniger Tafeln. - Schönes, frisches Exemplar. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Autograph letter signed ("Casanova").

      Dresden, 7. VII. 1790. - 4to. 3 pp. To Count Antonio Collalto ("Eccellenza mio Venerat[issimo] P[adrone]". Casanova reports reports on conflicts in Europe, prompted by early revolutionary fervour, including the quelling, by the Elector of Bavaria, Frederick Augustus III, of an uprising in Dresden, and the ill-health of the Archduke Francis of Austria, and considers the threat of war from Prussia, which might be tempted to intervene in Austria's conflict with Turkey, but which he hopes will be prevented by the indolence of the court and the unwillingness of the King [Friedrich Wilhelm II], also reporting a letter from his patron Pietro Zaguri, who tells him that all Constantinople desires peace, ".Qui v'è una insorgenza di paesani, che inquieta il governo, e jeri furono mandate truppe per deprimere il loro ardire. Si spera però che la permissione generale, che il prudentissimo Seren[issi]mo elettore diede di cacciare calmerà tutto. Si dice qui che S.A.R. l'arciduca Francesco abbia sofferto uno spunto di sangue. I ministri che circondano in Slesia il re di Prussia stanno là oziosi, e nulla il Rè decide. Egli non ha voglia di far guerra, e se non ne ha voglia non la farà. Ei vuole però che la guerra sia temuta." - Casanova thanks Collalto for his letter and message from "l'egregio signor principe [Francesco] Ruspoli", asks his permission to contact the prince, and offers his services whilst he is in Naples, assuring him that he has sent by mail-coach the two little books that he had requested, possibly the Corollaire [and Seconde Corollaire] à la duplication de l'Hexaèdre donné à Dux en Bohème, both of which Casanova had published that year in Dresden.Rare. Autograph letters by Casanova, particularly of this length and interest,are rarely offered for saleat auction.This letter shows Casanova'scontinual interest in diplomacy and in his patrons and contacts among the nobilityR.

      London: Sold by J. Boydell, Engraver, [c.1790?]. Hardcover. Very Good. 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).

        A Narrative of the Mutiny on Board His Majesty's Ship Bounty;

      London: George Nicol,, 1790. and the Subsequent Voyage of Part of the Crew, in the Ship's Boat, From Tofoa, one of the Friendly Islands, to Timor, a Dutch Settlement in the East Indies. Quarto (300 × 234 mm). Contemporary half calf sometime neatly rebacked, marbled sides. Housed in a brown cloth, fleece-lined slipcase. With the folding engraved plan "A Copy of the Draught from which the Bounty's Launch was built" by Mackenzie, and 3 engraved charts by J. Walker after W. Harrison (two of them folding). Bookplate of Louis E. Goodman (1892-1961), United States federal judge. Front joint partially split but sound, scattered foxing, a few old pale splashes on leaf B2, pencilled note at foot of D4 (and a couple of other light marginal markings). A very good, tall copy. First edition of Bligh's personal account of "one of the most remarkable incidents in the whole of maritime history" (Hill), published two years before his full official version of the voyage and the mutiny in an effort to influence opinion in his favour, absolving him "from any blame that might be levelled against him because of the incident" (Hill). The story of Fletcher Christian's mutinous commandeering of the Bounty, and the setting adrift of Bligh and his 18 loyal crewmen on a 23-foot launch is a tale known to all, but "what is not so well known is that in the course of this hazardous journey Bligh took the opportunity to chart and name parts of the unknown north-east coast of New Holland as he passed along it - an extraordinary feat of seamanship" (Wantrup). Despite the film-fuelled condescension of posterity, it should be remembered that Bligh's skill as a navigator, perhaps second only to Cook in his time, and his courage as a seaman, ensured his continued employment by the Admiralty, led to his election to the Royal Society, and to his appointment as governor of New South Wales.

        ELABORATELY CARVED CHINESE TORTOISE SHELL POCKET BLEEDER. [Surgical Scalpel]

      [China nd.ca.1790-1800]. Elaborately carved tortoise shell. case, c. 2.3 wide x 7.5 cm. tall, 1.3cm. thick, with hinged. top, sterling silver inner lined cover, top with red velvet. internally. Exterior including all edges are finely carved,. A RARE CHINESE MEDICAL INSTRUMENT reminscent of similar pattern and subjects found on classic Chinese cedar chests carved in Canton and South China area. The exterior is tortise shell fixed to the silver interior with two small rivets on the side with cherry-blossom like design, above which is a silver tab, used to open and lock closed the top hinged cover. The bottom is carved in the tr- aditional Buddhist swastika. The delicate & intricate carv- ving is done in the Southern style, with open gardens, trop- ical trees showing people relaxing & fanning themselves with large fans, commonly used in the hot, sultry South. The car- vings show a story of filial piety taken from a Confucian text. The top portrays two elders [father & uncle ?] seated with canes, and on the opposite side the eldest son fans his aged father who reads a book. The lower or larger portion is a domestic scene of a family in their garden with large trees and small pagodas and bridges adorning. Opposite side shows a mother holding very large folding fan and her daugh- ter embroidering a silk cloth. The upper portion show the father who also holds a round fan with his son nearby as the father faces & talks to him. Another child is also present in the garden. The opposite side shows the father & uncle in the garden. Upon opening the top, two distinct chambers are present, each holds a small English made steel knife blade [lanets] of the thinest grade sandwiched between two flat tortise covers. Stamped on one is "GRICE" the other shows the Brit-tish crown insignia with the letter "G" stamped. Each blade is riveted, the covers rotate open to reveal the blade and become a handle. They are 5.5 cm. long by 1cm. at the widest. The cover tops of both are with very small chips missing which do not detract from the over high qual- ity of the complete object. One blade may have a small chip off the tip, as this tip has two distinct sharp points, much like saw-teeth for a 'saw action' to cut the skin and vein for bleeding. The two blades are contained in the case & the cover lockes shut. The case is without flaw or defect. It has been miraculously preserved as issued. This medical instrument was used by both Chinese & Western physicans for blood cle-ansing treatment. This special elaborate Chinese carved case was part the doctor's instruments & medical kits obtained in China. For an excellent & good general backgrou- nd see H. Wallnofer: CHINESE FOLK MEDICINE, p.50 for use of Cocculus thunbergii Mu Fang Chi snailseed achieves good res- ults for cleansing of the blood. P. Huard: CHINESE MEDICINE. E.

On p. 205, reference to kidney health:...one should select from the vascular system those arteries which are controlled by the lesser Yin and the great Yang and should draw blood from them. To cure suffering from hand & foot "...Yin & Yang... one must first remove blood..."p.210. See also p.130 et al. See W. Morse CHINESE MEDICINE. The very high quality of car- ving should be appreciated. This was also used as a scapel to make small incisions in the skin. The tortoise case is carved with a very fine tool, even the facial features are skillfully done, much attention to the details of leaves, designs on the bridges, grass roof even the silken garments, coifferu &c. A very similar scapel is illustrated in Benja- min Hobson's: XIYI LUELUN in Chinese or the Japanese title: SEI I RYAKU RON, Kyoto 1858, on pages 10 & 24, in volume 1.

        The Poems of Ossian (Two Volumes-Complete)

      A. Strahan and T. Cadell, London, 1790. Very Good+ with no dust jacket. First Edition (?). 1. Hard Cover Bound in contemporary full leather, spines in six compartments separated by gilt borders, gilt lettering in two compartments on red panels, gilt decoration in other compartments, gilt borders on covers, gilt dentelles, marbled endpapers. In 1760, James MacPherson (1736-96), published "Fingal, an Ancient Epic Poem" his first translation of an ancient Gaelic poem composed by the warrior/poet Ossian a thousand years before. Praised by Schiller, quoted at length by Goethe, and beloved by Napoleon, a complete translation of the works of Ossian followed quickly upon the heels of its predecessor, but like "Fingal, " it was a monumental literary fraud unparalleled in the history of European scholarly letters. Composed entirely by MacPherson, Ossian was entirely a figment of Macpherson's imagination. In the following two years, MacPherson published two additional fragments, "Fragments" and "Temora." MacPherson had compiled fragments of ancient Gaelic poetry, which he interspersed with his own work, and published them all together, again as the work of Ossian, in 1765. This first collected edition, "The Works of Ossian" (1765), contains 400 or so textual revisions, mostly minor in nature, but for his second collected edition Macpherson reworked his entire text stylistically, and reordered the poems 'so as to form a kind of regular history of the age to which they relate'. When faced with skeptics, including Samuel Johnson, MacPherson was forced to fabricate his sources. [Lowndes 1736]. Also published there for the first time were MacPherson's prefatory discussion of the nature and merits of his 'translation' into prose rather than verse, doubting 'whether the harmony which these poems might derive from rhime could atone for the simplicity and energy, which they would lose'. He gives as an example a fragment of an old Norse poem translated by way of Gaelic into contemporary English prose, and then into contemporary English verse. The preface is dated 'Aug. 15, 1773'; it was less than six weeks later that Boswell and Johnson, in Ulinish on the Isle of Skye, were talking with Donald M'Queen about Ossian. 'I look upon M'Pherson's Fingal to be as gross an imposition as ever the world was troubled with', said Johnson. 'Had it been really an ancient work It would have been a curiosity of the first rate. As a modern production, it is nothing' (Boswell's Journal of a Tour to the Hebrides, ed. Hill-Powell, in Life of Johnson, V, 240-3) Johnson mentions this discussions with M'Queen in "Journey to the Western Islands" (first edition, pp. 271-7) in the course of a sustained denunciation of MacPherson's 'translations' and their apologists. Within two days of the distribution of Johnson's "Journey" to the booksellers, MacPherson began frantic negotiations with William Strahan, his publisher as well as Johnson's, to have an advertisement printed retracting such expressions as 'insolence, audacity, and guilt

        MINUTES OF THE CONVENTION OF THE COMMONWEALTH OF PENNSYLVANIA WHICH COMMENCED AT PHILADELPHIA, ON TUESDAY THE TWENTY-FOURTH DAY OF NOVEMBER...FOR THE PURPOSE OF REVIEWING, AND IF THEY SEE OCCASION, ALTERING AND AMENDING, THE CONSTITUTION OF THIS STATE. [issued with:] MINUTES OF THE SECOND SESSION OF THE CONVENTION OF THE COMMONWEALTH OF PENNSYLVANIA.... [bound with:] MINUTES OF THE GRAND COMMITTEE OF THE WHOLE CONVENTION OF THE COMMONWEALTH OF PENNSYLVANIA

      Philadelphia, 1790. Contemporary sheep, expertly rebacked with original spine. Very good. In a blue morocco box. Provenance: Robert J. Fisher (early signature). Following the adoption of the Federal Constitution and Bill of Rights, Pennsylvania decided to amend its own frame of government, first established with their radical constitution of 1776. The present volume contains the complete minutes of the 1789-90 convention. Often considered a conservative reaction against the excesses of democracy incorporated into the earlier 1776 constitution, the revised document created a bi-cameral legislature and vested strong executive power in the governor and with a separation of powers modeled on the federal constitution. Among the delegates to the Convention of 1789-90 were Thomas McKean, James Wilson, Thomas Mifflin, Timothy Pickering, and Abraham Lincoln (of Berks County, an ancestor of the president). With this constitution, which was ratified in 1790, Pennsylvania went from the most egalitarian state government to the most reactionary. The proceedings of the convention were printed in three parts in folio, and Evans provides each with a separate entry, although the first two are paginated continuously. The work is very rare with all three parts, with the only other examples appearing in auction records being from the libraries of Jay Snider in 2008 and Samuel W. Pennypacker in 1906. This example with provenance to Judge Robert J. Fisher (1806-88), graduate of Yale Law School and chief judge of the 19th Pennsylvania judicial district, who for over thirty years presided over the courts in York and Adams counties.

        Doctor Bahrdt mit der eisernen Stirn, oder Die deutsche Union gegen Zimmermann, Ein Schauspiel in vier Aufzügen von Freyherrn von Knigge. [Von August von Kotzebue unter falschem Namen].

      Ohne Ort (Dorpat) und ohne Verlag 1790 - (2), (9), 10-92 Seiten. Gestochene Titelvignette mit aus Wolken heraus ineinandergreifenden Löwen- und Adlerklauen sowie Schriftzug "Vis unita fortior". Borst 631; Goedeke V, 276; Hayn/Gotendorf III, 588f; Killy VI, 509f; NDB XII, 624f; - Neben dem Studium der Jurisprudenz ab 1777 in Jena widmete sich August von Kotzebue (1761-1819) der Schriftstellerei, verfasste Gedichte und Dramen und gründete einen Dichterclub. 1781-1790 bekleidete er hohe Ämter in Petersburg, betrieb ein Liebhabertheater und verfasste selbst Stücke wie "Menschenhass und Reue", die ihm zu breiter Popularität verhalfen. "Mit dieser Schrift bezog er Position in einer literar. Fehde zwischen Johann Georg Zimmermann und Carl Friedrich Bahrdt, deren Tragweite ihm kaum bewußt gewesen sein mag. Die Invektiven gegen Campe, Boie, Lichtenberg, Nicolai, Knigge u. andere provozierten einen Skandal, der eine der Ursachen dafür war, daß K.s dramat. Werk trotz seiner großen Popularität von der zeitgenöss. Kritik nicht nur mit Geringschätzung, sondern auch mit dem Vorwurf der Unmoralität bedacht wurde."
