      Europe, Privately collected, c.1790-1810.. 20 x 25 cm. 39 pages with 36 full pages of tipped in specimens. Original wonderfully decorative vellum from an obviously skillful bindery with gilt floral elements and lettering. Excellent condition with only minor signs of external wear. The endpapers and pastedowns mildly stained. The interior and specimens otherwise in fantastic condition. Please ask for professional images of the whole volume.. Original Herbaria are extremely scarce and usually are not in similar aesthetically gorgeous bindings like this one.

        AN AUTHENTIC ACCOUNT OF THE CONVERSION AND EXPERIENCE OF A NEGRO [caption title].

      London: Printed by T. Wilkins, [nd, but ca. 1790]. - 4pp. printed on folded sheet. Very good. One of several edition of this short account of the Christian conversion of an African-American in late 18th- century New York. The anonymous author says he encountered the man when visiting a plantation. Falling into conversation with him, he discovered the man was enamored of the Bible and a practising Christian, nut more out of fear than of joy: his master, a Quaker, had taught his slaves to read but not encouraged them in religion. The narrator asks the man questions about doctrinal issues such as "the merit of works, the justification of a sinner, the power of grace, and the like," and is delighted with the "heavenly wisdom that God had put into the mind of this sweet Negro." The pamphlet ends with an exhortation to the reader, who has been more privileged that the black man, to do likewise: "Reader, this Negro was a Christian; a Bible Christian. He had not indeed the outward form of godliness, but he had the power - How is it with you?" ESTC locates five total editions, two of them American, two London, and one in Edinburgh. All are scarce; this edition with fewer than ten locations.

        Treatise on the Culture of the Vine Together with new hints on the formation of vineyards in England

      York: Printed by G. Peacock for the author, 1790. Quarto, five engraved plates (three folding), closed tear to p. 149; a most attractive copy in nineteenth-century straight grained red half morocco, label to front board, spine gilt, armorial bookplate of Vane Londonderry. "cultivating the Vine... has long been one of the first objects of my attention..." First edition: "a practical, well-written and beautifully printed manual" (Hyams).William Speechly (1735-1819) was a famous English horticulturalist, who had made his name perfecting the growing of pineapples (an eighteenth-century English craze) in England. At this point in his career Speechly was gardener at Welbeck Abbey in Nottinghamshire, the house of the third Duke of Portland, to whom he dedicated this book. Speechly describes some 50 varieties of grape, and discusses all manner of practical questions relating to vineyards, including a long discussion on hothouses. Although printed in York, it is interesting to note that the London distributors included Nicol (who published Cook's third voyage), as well as both Stockdale and Debrett who, at the time, were publishing the First Fleet journals.It has been assumed that the first edition was in fact an undated edition at London, but this seems unlikely as the London edition is an expanded work, and Speechly was based in Nottinghamshire and had connections to Yorkshire (his first gardening position had been at Castle Howard).From the library of Charles William Vane, third Marquess of Londonderry.

        The adventures of Numa Pompilius, second King of Rome. Translated from the French of M. De Florian

      Brussels, printed by B. Le Francq, book-seller. 1790. 4 vols., 12mo., engraved frontispiece in vol.I and three further engraved plates in each volume (13 plates in all), text throughout in parallel English and French, (4) + 217 + (1) and (4) + 239 + (1) and 261 + (1) and (4) + 247 + (1)pp., uniformly bound in late 18th century catspaw calf, spines fully gilt with contrasting labels, silk markers. The bindings all with wear and some insect damage, but all the volumes are fine and crisp internally. A rare Brussels printing of this history for children. (ESTC & OCLC find other complete sets only at Yale + BL + Cambridge + Augsburg Un. + B.N.France). Jean-Pierre Claris de Florian (1755-1794) was a French poet and romance writer. 'To modern readers, Florian is chiefly known as the author of petty fables well suited as reading for the young, but his contemporaries praised him also for his poetical and pastoral novels. Numa Pompilius,> which first appeared in 1786, was an undisguised imitation of Fénelon's Télemaque.> The Osborne collection at Toronto Public Library seems to have only Florian's Select fables> (1806: 1st pub. in 1792) and his William Tell> (1823 ed.), but no printing of Numa Pompilius.> Numa Pompilius (753-673 B.C.) himself was the legendary second King of Rome who succeeded Romulus in 715 B.C.

        A Treatise On Theatres

      London: Printed for the author and sold by J. & J. Taylor at the Architectural Library, 1790. First edition. Hardcover. Later three quarter half red morocco and marbled boards with matching marbled endpapers. Very good. 94 pages in text. 30 x 25 cm. Title, half title, introduction and contents list. Thirteen plates, four folding. An architectural treatise in which the author attempted to discover the principles that should govern theatre construction, taking into consideration a theatre's form, function, size, beauty and acoustics. The thirteen large and detailed plates display plans of various theatres-- from Pompeii to Covent Garden-- plus Saunders' own design for an ideal theatre; all but the last two plates are copies of those in Dumont's Salles de Spectacles (ca. 1767). Saunders is chiefly known as the architect who enlarged Lord Mansfield's residence in Highgate, and as the designer of the extension to the British Museum's Montagu House (torn down in 1851), in which the Townley marbles were housed. Saunders was also one of the founders of the British Museum. Ancient theatres depicted in the plates include Pompeii, Greek and Roman Theatres, Bacchus at Athens, Marcellus at Rome, Vincenza and Parma. At the time of this publication he had just completed two major theatres. RIBA 2908. Bookplates of Ogden Codman and architect Thomas Chawner's signature on the title, who retired in 1845 [see; COLVIN p.212]. One fold-out plate repaired with archival tape. Plates generally clean and sound, raised bands spine panels decorated in gilt motifs, modest extremity rubbing.

He also discovered various other gasses, and accidently invented the eraser. This is more or less the "final" edition of his work on gasses.

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

      Port-au-Prince: De l'Imprimerie de Mozard, 1790. - 20pp. 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. ROQUINCOURT 4203.

        NE Coast of New Holland.

      G. Nicol,, London: 1790 - This remarkable chart of the Cape York Penninsula, North Queensland, was first published in the first edition of Bligh's account of the infamous mutiny. It was charted during Bligh's death-defying journey across 4000 miles of open seas in the Bounty's launch. Despite departing under such dire circumstances, Bligh piloted the launch to safety in Timor. "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). One wonders at his continued attention to such detail, in which he charts the Cape York Penninsula. The book is entitled "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." The map is not listed in Tooley, but should be. The book references: Ferguson 71; Wantrup 61; Hill 132; Kroepelian 87. Image size 7 1/2 x 10 1/2" with large margins, 11 x 15".

        Narrations d'Omaï, insulaire de la mer du sud, ami et compagnon de voyage du Capitaine Cook. Ouvrage traduit de l'O-taïtien, par M. K***, & publié par le Capitaine L.A.B

      Rouen: Chez de Boucher, 1790. Four volumes, octavo, portrait frontispiece to volume one ("Omaï amené en Angletere par le Capitaine Furneaux"), wood-engraved headpieces; some early jottings on verso of frontispiece and final leaf of volume one, a handsome set in early quarter calf, spines gilt. The Omai fantasy. First edition of this romantic fantasy about Omai, the Tahitian islander brought back to England by Cook. This is, with Elliott's Hildebrand Bowman, one of the two key imaginary voyages which relate specifically to Cook's voyages.Canon Baston (1741-1825) was a native of Rouen who published many works on rather arcane questions of theology, making it all the more surprising that he should be the author of this extraordinary work: an imaginary autobiography of Omai concentrating on the Tahitian's visit to Europe.Omai's visit to Europe was indeed newsworthy: despite Cook's initial objections, Omai was taken on board the Adventure, which returned to Portsmouth in July 1774. Given into the custody of Banks and Solander, Omai was fêted by the English public and widely seen as the embodiment of Rousseauist ideals of the noble savage. The public's fascination was reflected by the huge success of the long-running pantomime Omai: or a Trip Round the World, staged by Loutherbourg and Shield.Baston's long novel purports to be the autobiography of Omai translated from the Tahitian (it includes a four-page glossary of difficult Tahitian terms). Seen by Tarlton and McCormick as Omai's 'supreme literary tribute', the fantasy borrows heavily from the utopian imaginary voyage tradition by depicting Omai as the 'saviour of his people, a leader who on returning from England purges his society of all its evils while he introduces only the benefits of European civilisation' (Auckland City Art Gallery, The Two Worlds of Omai, 1977, p. 14).Unlike his compatriot Diderot, whose writings on Autorou - the Tahitian who returned with Bougainville to France - are marked by bitter regret at the European influence on the Pacific, Baston depicts an idyllic synthesis of Tahitian innate nobility being enhanced and purified by contact with Europe. Tragically, of course, it was Diderot's cynicism which provided a far more accurate appraisal of the coming destruction of Polynesian society, a fact which increases the historical fascination of Baston's portrait of bucolic harmony.
