Die Kupfertafeln wurden unter der künstlerischen Leitung v. J. H. Lips unter Mitarbeit der freien Zeichenschule in Weimar hergestellt. In einem programmatischen Vorwort ... beschrieb Bertuch die enge Beziehung die ein Kind zu seinem Buch aufnimmt, und stellte die Grundforderungen der sachlichen Richtigkeit und der Kindgemäßheit für die Illustrationen auf... ein Bilderbuch ist für eine Kinderstube ein ebenso wesentliches und noch unentbehrlicheres Meuble als die Wiege, die Puppen oder das Schaukelpferd.\" (Doderer I, 136f.) \"Das in Einzellieferungen herausgegebene enzyklopädisch angelegte Bilderbuch erschien zwischen 1790 und 1830 in einer Auflage von nur 3.000 Exemplaren.

        A general history of the Christian church, from the fall of the Western Empire to the present time ...

      First edition. Priestley, a controversial theologian as well as a chemist who may be best remembered today for experiments with gasses that led to the discovery of oxygen, here continues his General History of the Christian Church to the Fall of the Western Empire (published in two volumes in 1790) up through 1802. (Although the present set, dedicated to Thomas Jefferson, stands alone, each book does close with an acknowledgment of its number in both series -- i.e., "The end of Volume the third of the Second Part, or Volume the fifth of the whole Work".) Priestley's ecclesiastical history not only canvasses Catholicism and the other branches of Christianity, but considers Judaism and Islam (if the latter to a somewhat limited extent) as well. This work was printed in Northumberland, Pennsylvania, where Priestley settled in 1782, his liberal political opinions and defense of the French Revolution (in addition to his status as a nonconforming minister of questionable orthodoxy) having obliged him to emigrate from England to the United States. Provenance: Each title-page inscribed by N. Irwin.

        The life and strange surprizing adventures of Robinson Crusoe, of York, mariner.

      London: John Stockdale 8vo (22 cm, 8.7"). 2 vols. I: Frontis., engr. t.-p., xii, 389, [1] pp.; 8 plts. II: Frontis., engr. t.-p., [iii]?-v, [1], 456, [14 (adv.)] pp.; 5 plts.. 1790 ILLUSTRATED late 18th-century rendition of this classic tale: The Stockdale edition of Defoe's most-read novel contains a frontispiece and engraved title-page in each volume, along with an engraved portrait of Defoe and 12 engraved illustrations done by Medland after drawings by Stothard. Chalmers's Life of Defoe appears in this edition for the first time anywhere; another interesting addition is "A List of Writings, which are considered as undoubtedly De Foe's." => A handsome edition of a great, indeed landmark English novel. Period-style speckled calf, covers framed in gilt double fillets with gilt-stamped corner fleurons (lower front fleurons absent on vol. I); spines with gilt-stamped leather title- and volume-labels, gilt-ruled raised bands, and gilt-stamped compartment decorations. Vol. I: one leaf with short tear in outer margin, not touching text; one leaf with small paper flaw in outer margin. Vol. II: three pages (only) with noticeable sizing; one leaf with closed tear affecting several lines without loss of text; one leaf with lost upper corner restored touching page number. 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.

Seine Schriften erörtern philosophische Probleme in freier, künstlerischer Weise ähnlich wie Dialoge Platons oder Giordano Brunos. Shaftesburys Philosophie ruht auf einer persönlichen ästhetischen und ethischen Lebensanschauung.? (op. cit. p. 384). ? ?Seine Abhandlungen ?Characteristics [etc.]?, 1711, sind eine Moralphilosophie in essayistischer Form, die die Harmonie der Welt und die Bestimmung des Menschen zur Tugend in aufklärerischer Weise betont, jedoch auch die Bedeutung des ?Enthusiasmus? für das Leben hervorhebt und moralisches u. ästhetisches Harmoniegefühl verbindet.

        ACTS PASSED AT THE SECOND SESSION OF THE CONGRESS OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, BEGUN AND HELD AT THE CITY OF NEW-YORK, ON MONDAY THE FOURTH OF JANUARY, IN THE YEAR M,DCC,XC; AND OF THE INDEPENDENCE OF THE UNITED STATES, THE FOURTEENTH. PUBLISHED BY AUTHORITY

      New York: the Congress of the United States, 1790. Folio. Contemporary three-quarter calf and marbled boards, gilt leather label. Contemporary and later ownership inscription on titlepage. Minor scattered foxing and toning. Very good. The official record of the acts of Congress passed during the second session of the first Congress, which "contains the Treaties and Conventions ratified with the several countries of Europe, and with the Indian tribes." As during the first session of the first Congress, many more fundamental acts of legislation were passed in this term, including the Census, naturalization law, the copyright bill, the settling of the District of Columbia as the seat of the new government, and various tariff and fiscal laws. An important volume in the early history of the United States, recording the official Acts passed in the earliest days of the federal government. This copy bears the ownership inscription of Jeremiah Van Rensselaer (1738-1810), who served as a representative for New York during the First Congress. Van Rensselaer was a graduate of the College of New Jersey (later Princeton), who settled in his hometown of Albany. He was active in local politics and was early on a supporter of the American cause against Britain, joining the Albany Sons of Liberty in 1766. He served as a paymaster during the Revolution and was an Antifederalist after the war, opposing the new Constitution. After serving in the First Congress, he went on to direct the Bank of Albany and serve as Lieutenant Governor under George Clinton.

        A NARRATIVE OF THE MUTINY ON BOARD HIS MAJESTY'S SHIP BOUNTY; 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

      London, 1790. Large quarto. Three-quarter dark blue morocco and cloth, gilt. Minor rubbing along the spine and at spine ends and corners. Armorial bookplate of William Cavendish- Bentinck, 6th Duke of Portland, on the front pastedown. Light scattered foxing. Overall, a very good copy, tall and uncut. First edition of Bligh's account of the famous mutiny and the incredible voyage which followed. Although the mutiny is now the best known incident, the most remarkable part of the narrative is undoubtedly Bligh's account of the voyage in the Bounty's launch. His achievement of safely navigating an open vessel packed with nineteen men a distance of four thousand miles without serious mishap is almost without parallel in the history of ocean travel. He not only piloted the boat to safety, but "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" (Wantrup, p.128). The resulting chart of the "NE Coast of New Holland" was first published in the present work.

        VIAGGIO NEGLI STATI UNITI DELL' AMERICA SETTENTRIONALE FATTO NEGLI ANNI 1785, 1786, E 1787

      Milan, 1790. Half title in first volume. Antique-style three-quarter calf and marbled boards. Internally fresh and near fine. Castiglioni (1757-1832), a young Italian count, was the first Italian traveller in the American South. His narrative is an important overview of the United States for the time, especially for agricultural and botanical information. He was especially interested in rice culture, and is credited with importing several varieties back to Italy. The first part of the work describes the author's journey through the eastern states (Delaware, Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Vermont, and New Hampshire), as well as a brief visit to Canada. The second part is comprised of an important alphabetized description of selected flora of the United States. Castiglioni's route of travel in the South includes stops in Baltimore, Annapolis, Mount Vernon, Colchester, Dumfries (describing a tobacco warehouse there), Fredericksburg, Richmond (describing planters, persimmons, peaches, slaves, etc.), Petersburg (a visit with John Banister, the plantation of Capt. Walker), Charleston, Savannah, Augusta, and Charlottesville (a visit to Monticello, comments on NOTES ON THE STATE OF VIRGINIA). "Castiglioni's purposes in visiting America were to witness the birth of a republic out of diverse people occupying a large area and to study the plants of North America with the particular view of finding species which might be introduced into Europe. He is credited with having imported into Lombardy the locust, which had flourished mightily by the time of his death, the catalpa, and the arbor vitae....The account of Luigi's journey is interrupted, as he leaves a state, by a sort of encyclopedia type of miscellany on the state. For South Carolina, for example, he discourses on history, the districts, John Locke's proposals, government, the inscription on the Pitt monument at Charleston, buildings, churches, trade, climate, and manners (abuse of liquor)....The new Constitution of the United States, given him by Franklin, is reprinted entire, probably its first translation into Italian..." - Clark. The plates are of an iceberg; a plan of Boston; Indian objects; a plan of New York; a plan of Charleston; drawing of three styles of American log fences; a detailed engraving of a rice mill and related processing tools for rice (a particular interest of the author); and figures illustrating the growing and processing of tobacco. There are also several fine natural history plates, including depictions of oak leaves and an acorn, an opossum, the leaf of the "Franklinia altamaha," and a drawing of the sumac. See Clark for further references concerning Castiglioni. An important illustrated account of American travel, often overlooked and quite rare.

        FRANCKLIN [sic]

      [Paris, 1790. Sheet lightly browned, more so around the edges. Overall, very good. Matted. An attractive mezzotint portrait of Benjamin Franklin, with delicate contemporary coloring. The engraving was done after an original portrait by the famed French painter, Charles Philippe Vanloo (sometimes spelled Van Loo). The original portrait was done while Franklin resided in Paris in the years during and after the American Revolution, and is now in the collection of the American Philosophical Society, which was founded by Franklin. Sellers asserts that it is "beyond question a life portrait," done between 1777 and 1785. In Vanloo's original portrait Franklin wears a fur coat. In this print of the painting the fur coat has been replaced by a simpler cloth coat. Franklin wears glasses, his hair is long and gray, and he has a slight smile on his face. In the caption below the image, his name is spelled "Francklin." "The substitution of a simple gray coat for the fur-trimmed costume of the original was undoubtedly in deference to revolutionary feeling" - Sellers. This print was engraved after Vanloo's portrait by the noted French engraver, Pierre-Michel Alix, who was known for his portraits of leading French citizens and prominent personalities. A handsome contemporary portrait of the American who dazzled France as a diplomat, scientist, philosopher, and gentleman of society.

        Abbildung der hundert deutschen wilden Holz-Arten nach dem Numern-Verzeichnis im Forst-Handbuch von F.A.L. von Burgsdorf.

      - Als eine Beilage zu diesem Werke, heraus gegeben. I.(-IV.) Heft (all published). Stuttgart, gedrukt in der Drukerei der Herzoglichen Hohen Karls-Schule, 1790. 4to (280 x 225mm). pp. (14), 38, with 100 handcoloured engraved plates. Contemporary half calf, ornamented spine with gilt lettered label (old skilful repair to hinges). A fine copy of the first edition of this very rare botanical work describing one hundred woody plants, with fruit and flowers growing wild in Germany. The colouring of the plates is of an unusual high standard, and belongs to the very best produced in southern Germany at its summit of fine natural history production. The plates are engraved and drawn by G.F. Abel himself, a Stuttgart artist and engraver. Apart from this and one other work, also by Reiter, he is otherwise unknown as a botanical artist. One technique employed, unusual in colour-plate botanical books, is the use of background shadows to give the illusion of the plants standing slightly above the surface of the page.Reiter was a botanist and forester; he was forestry commissioner at Stuttgart 1794-1801 and later in the Würtemberger forestry department. The Burgsdorf work referred to in the title is his 'Anleitung zur sichern Erziehung.' 1787. The plates are in mint condition.Nissen BBI, 1617; Stafleu & Cowan 8971.

        Answer to an Introduction to the Observations Made by the Judges of the Court of Common Pleas, for the District of Quebec, Upon the Oral and Written Testimony Adduced Upon the Investigation, Into the Past Administration of Justice, Ordered in Consequence of an Address of the Legislative Council. With Remarks on the Laws And Government Of Quebec

      London 1790 - [2],107pp. Lacks half title. The pamphlet to which this forms a reply was written by judges Adam Mabane, Thomas Dunn, and Jean-Claude Panet to defend their conduct against attacks and criticisms leveled by Sir James Monk in his STATE OF THE PRESENT FORM OF GOVERNMENT OF THE PROVINCE OF QUEBEC (1789). Monk, attorney-general of Quebec from 1776 to 1789, was one of the most outspoken critics of the existing judicial system, and argued strongly in favor of legal and governmental anglicanization. He was suspended from office following his appearance before the investigation committee appointed in 1787 by Guy Carleton, Lord Dorchester. Attributed to Francis Maseres, former attorney-general of Quebec, the ANSWER. presents a defense of Monk and a review of the administration of justice in Quebec. Gagnon II:71; Sabin 66990.

        PROPOSITIONS DES CITOYENS DE LA COLONIE QUI ÉTOIENT RASSEMBLÉS À LÉOGANE, ET RÉPONSES DE M. LE GOUVERNEUR GÉNÉRAL

      Port-au-Prince, 1790. Gathered signatures. Small color pencil notation on titlepage, minor dampstain to gutter throughout, else very good. Proposals from the citizens of the colony who were gathered in Leogane, and replies from the Governor General. Following assistance from the military, supported by the governor of Saint Domingue, against the Assembly of San Marco (July 29/30) and the flight of the survivors to the mainland on the ship Le Léopard (Aug. 8), it was still necessary to dissipate, especially in the south and west of the colony, preventions in favor of the fugitives and their heretofore constitutional projects. A meeting held in Leogane with the aim of continuing the agitation was contained by the Governor's troops and the young militia of Voluntary Patriots. In the end some restricted proposals were put forward, to which Governor Peinier gave mainly benevolent replies. In the present document, the introduction by Peinier is followed by the proposals opposite the Governor's replies. A rare work, with only seven total copies in OCLC.

        [AUTOGRAPH LETTER, SIGNED ("EGBT BENSON"), FROM EGBERT BENSON AS U.S. CONGRESSMAN FROM NEW YORK, TO AN UNNAMED RECIPIENT (PROBABLY SAMUEL JONES)]

      Philadelphia, 1790. Very good. In a half morocco clamshell case. An intriguing letter from Egbert Benson, New York's first attorney general after independence, a leading New York jurist, prime mover in the push for a new federal constitution, and Representative from New York in the First Congress. Benson, along with Alexander Hamilton, had introduced the resolution for a constitutional convention at the Annapolis Convention of 1786, and he introduced the resolution for a New York ratifying convention in 1788. He writes to an unnamed correspondent, reporting on the business of the third session, with mention of President Washington's speech, Alexander Hamilton's reports, and New York Supreme Court justices John S. Hobart and Robert Yates; and the recent military campaign against the Miamis in the Ohio Valley. Though Benson dated this letter "Nov. 14, 1790," it was almost certainly written on Dec. 14, as Congress did not meet until December that year. "Dear Sir, Upon Reflection it has appeared to Me, and I am persuaded it will appear to you, most advisable that the intended Correspondence between Us should seem to commence with you. Indeed it will not be easy for me or satisfactory to you for me to write to you generally on the Subject, and therefore wish you would from time to time write to me stating the Questions which you may be desirous to have examined and answered. It will be most prudent that your Letters should be communicated to the other Gentlemen in the Delegation and therefore my answers will in a Degree be public Communications. I do not propose however to confine myself to a mere answer to an Interrogatory; my Letters will contain Suggestions of whatever may occur to Me as useful - "We have scarcely entered on the Business of the Session. The President's Speech with the Answers and his Replies you will see in the Papers; and we have two reports from Mr. Hamilton, the one providing additional means for the Payment of the Interest on the public Debt and the other on the Subject of a Bank. These will be printed and I shall send a Copy to Robert [Yates?] for the perusal of Judge Hobart and Yourself. "Our troops have returned from the Western Expedition and have so far succeeded as to have destroyed a Number of Indian Towns with a great Quantity of Provision. Possibly as far as there was Reason to expect it probably would be, the Object of the Expedition has been effected, but with the Loss of near 200 Men on our Side. It is said that upwards of 100 of the Indians were killed in the two different Engagements." While the recipient of the letter is not named, Kenneth Bowling of the First Federal Congress Project believes it to be Samuel Jones, a prominent Anti-Federalist from Queens County who nonetheless voted for the Constitution at the New York convention. Bowling cites Benson's other letters to Jones, of which several survive, and the roundabout language of the first paragraph, which suggests Benson was concerned what use might be made of his correspondence. Bowling notes that no Benson letters survive from the first two sessions of the First Congress, and only seven from the third: four to Nicholas Low, and two definitely to Jones. He thinks this is a third.

        A Monumental Run of Ninety-Nine Revolutionary War Period Rhode Island Session Laws]

      Providence, Newport, Attleboro, and Rehoboth 1790 - Fourteen volumes. Ninety-nine separate imprints, publication details and pagination provided upon request. Uniform 20th-century buckram, gilt leather labels. Some leaves detached, clipped, or chipped, some repairs, occasional toning or tanning, some small ink library stamps, scattered contemporary ink marginalia, some dampstaining, an occasional closed tear, some leaves closely trimmed, a handful of leaves in early manuscript facsimile. The Revolutionary War Laws of Rhode Island An unprecedented assemblage of Rhode Island colonial and early state laws, most printed during the Revolutionary War. The great majority of the imprints are signed at the end by the Secretary of the colony and then State of Rhode Island, Henry Ward, who served in that position from Dec. 1760 to Nov. 1797. Almost all retain the official seal affixed to the front page of each imprint. The first thirty-two imprints represent Rhode Island colonial law, but beginning in July 1776, the word "Colony" becomes the word "State" and remains so, of course, from then on. In the August 1772 session, the assembly addresses the Gaspee Affair: "Whereas his Honor the Governor hath laid before this Assembly a full and particular Narrative of the Measures he hath pursued in Consequence of the burning of His Majesty's Schooner, the Gaspee; and of the Steps he hath taken to discover the Perpetrators of that atrocious Piece of Villany." The assembly then proceeds to offer a reward of one hundred pounds sterling to anyone who discovers the guilty parties of the "said Crime." The Gaspee Affair was a significant incident in Rhode Island in the lead-up to the American Revolution. On June 9, 1772, near the city of Warwick, Rhode Island, a British customs ship called the Gaspee ran aground in shallow water while chasing a packet boat. Shortly after the wreck, a group of American colonists (Providence members of the Sons of Liberty, in fact) attacked, boarded, looted, and torched the ship, putting a bullet in the ship's lieutenant in the process. The British government investigated the affair, intending to find enough evidence to try the culprits for treason. The inquiry failed to obtain sufficient evidence, and the matter was closed. News of the incident spread throughout the colonies. Committees of correspondence in Boston, Virginia and other parts of Colonial British America were especially concerned with the prospect of Americans being sent to England for trial. A popular pamphlet utilized the Gaspee incident, and it became an early rallying cry from those colonists focused on ending British rule in America. The affair was one of the most significant events in Rhode Island on the road to revolution. There is a voluminous amount in these imprints regarding the American Revolution. For instance, in the July 1776 imprint, a rather important month for American independence, the Rhode Island legislature passed an act that punished anyone who acknowledged "the King of Great-Britain to be their Sovereign" with a fine of one hundred pounds sterling. This act is also the first here to refer to the Declaration of Independence when it mentions "the General Congress of the United States of America, by their Resolution of the Fourth Instant." Subsequent months and years see the assembly form military units, provide supplies, provisions, regulations, and pay to the troops, institute a draft, and much more. The laws for February 1778 include a resolution to appoint three delegates empowered to sign the Articles of Confederation for Rhode Island. In fact, 1778 was a particularly busy year for the state. France had formally allied itself with the American forces early in the year, and together the two allies fought against the British at the Battle of Rhode Island (also known as the Battle of Quaker Hill or the Seige of Newport) in August. Several resolutions in these session laws address supplies, the wounded, prisoner exchanges, and more related to the war effort against "the Enemy at Rhode-I [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        a Native of the Pelew Islands. Brought to England by Capt.n Wilson. A new Edition.

      London. Printed for E. Newberry [1790s]. - 12mo., pp. vi, 178; with an engraved title page, an engraved frontispiece and 5 engraved plates; a very good copy bound without the 3 leaves of advertisements in contemporary half calf and marbled boards; morocco label.The earliest of several undated editions, priority not firmly established – a popular juvenile abridgement of George Keate's An Account of the Pelew Islands (1788). Roscoe notes that the edition dated 1789 is probably the first; it includes the frontispiece portrait of Lee Boo but no further plates. Roscoe lists at least four different undated editions but notes that they exhibit 'worn and reworked states of the engraved frontispiece', and plates 'so worn as to give mere ghosts of impression.' Here all the plates are in fine, strong impressions. Keate's Account was the best eighteenth-century work on the Palau islands and on Prince Lee Boo, brought to London by Captain Henry Wilson and educated as an Englishman. The prince was introduced to fashionable life, dressed in Western clothes, and converted to Christianity. Tragically, he died of smallpox after only five months in England. His fate was remembered by Coleridge in 'To a Young Lady with a Poem on the French Revolution':My soul amid the pensive twilight gloomMourned with the breeze, O, Lee Boo! o'er thy tombRoscoe J170 (3A).
