        Elements of Moral Science.

      Edinburgh: printed for T. Cadell, and William Creech, 1790-3 - 2 volumes, octavo in half-sheets (210 x 128 mm). Contemporary polished tree calf, red morocco labels and roundels to spines, compartments ruled in gilt, edges sprinkled red. Spine ends and corners bumped, small tear to volume I head of spine, extremities lightly worn and spines somewhat faded, a few minor chips to boards, occasional light foxing, upper corners of volume I leaf Dd3-4 and Ee3-4 torn, text unaffected, endpapers browned from turn-ins, a very good set.

First edition, presentation copy, inscribed by the author to his friend Sir William Forbes of Pitsligo (1739-1806) on the verso of both title pages. James Beattie (1735-1803) was a significant figure of the Scottish Enlightenment, holding the chair of Professor of Moral Philosophy at the University of Aberdeen from 1760. In his philosophical works (such as An Essay on the Nature and Immutability of Truth, 1770, and Elements of Moral Science, 1790) he argued influentially for the idea of a "Common Sense" to counter the epistemological scepticism inculcated by Hume, and also against the institution of slavery. He was in addition well known for his poetry, in particular for The Minstrel (1771-4), which inspired the Wordsworth and the other Romantics. Sir William Forbes, 6th Baronet Pitsligo (1739-1806) was a prominent Scottish banker, philanthropist, and writer, and long-time friend of James Beattie. Forbes was the author of Beattie's biography, published in 1806 as An Account of the Life and Writings of James Beattie. He was also a friend of James Boswell (described in the Tour of the Hebrides as "a man of whom too much good cannot be said") and through him became a member of Samuel Johnson's literary dining club. The first edition, though well represented institutionally, is scarce in commerce. Chuo III, 29;Jessop, p. 99. [Attributes: First Edition]

"He had not reached the source of the true Nile, but only that of its considerable tributary. He was also in error in regarding himself as the first European who had reached these fountains There is a sense, however, in which Bruce may be more justly esteemed the Discoverer of the fount of the Blue Nile than Paez, who stumbled upon it by accident, and, absorbed by missionary zeal, thought little of the exploit to which Bruce had dedicated his life."

        A Treatise on the Culture of the Vine.

      York: Printed for the author by G. Peacock,, 1790. Exhibiting new and advantageous methods of propagating, cultivating, and training that plant, so as to render it abundantly fruitful. Together with new hints on the formation of vineyards in England. Quarto (252 x 198 mm). Contemporary speckled calf, titles gilt to orange label to spine. With 5 engraved plates, 3 of which are folding. Pencil inscription to head of title page, "April 24, 1840". Small cracks to head of front and rear joints, slight rubbing to extremities, a couple of small marks to boards; an excellent copy. First edition. William Speechly (c. 1740–1821), was gardener to the third Duke of Portland, at his estate Welbeck Abbey in Nottinghamshire. Encouraged by the Duke he started writing down and publishing his knowledge and experience in gardening; in 1776 he had contributed to Alexander Hunter's edition of Evelyn's Silva, which was shortly followed by his own Treatise on the Culture of the Pineapple in 1779. In the present work Speechly describes 50 species of grapes, and thoroughly examines hothouse culture, the construction and management of vineyards, pruning, irrigation, grafting, insect and blight control, etc. An undated and expanded edition was published in London by Longman, Hurst, Rees, and Orme, and is commonly believed to have been published after the York edition, with only the Bibliotheca Vinaria stating that it was published prior, in 1789. This sequence of publishing dates contradicts other bibliographical references, including Bibliotheca Gastronomica. A "practical, well-written and beautifully printed manual", the book proved to have long lasting popularity and two further editions appeared in 1805 and 1821. With the ownership inscription in ink of the High Sheriff of Norfolk, John Richard Dashwood, to the head of the title page, "J. R. Dashwood, 1790, Cley Hall near Swaffham". Dashwood is also listed as an original subscriber.

      Wien, 11. VIII. 1790. - ½ S. auf Doppelblatt. 4to. Dienstschreiben an Karl Graf von Zinzendorf (1739-1813), den Präsidenten der Neuen Hofrechnungskammer: "Da Ich für gut befunden habe, es künftighin von der Abgebung der jährlichen Konduitlisten gänzlich abkommen zu lassen, so will Ich Ihnen solches zu ihrer Nachricht, und zu dem Ende erwähnen, daß Sie auch hievon die Ihnen untergeordnete[n] Länderbehörden verständigen [.]". - Karl Graf Zinzendorf hatte seit 1784 den Vorsitz der Robotaufhebungskommission inne; 1792 wurde er Staats- und Konferenzminister und Mitglied des Staatsrats, 1800 Landmarschall von Niederösterreich. Von 1801 bis 1813 Landkomtur des Deutschen Ordens in Österreich, war Zinzendorf 1808 vorübergehend dirigierender Staats- und Konferenzminister. "Zinzendorf war ein Vorkämpfer des Freihandels und lehnte den Merkantilismus ab. Seine seit 1782 geführten Tagebücher, die über sechzig Bände umfassen, sind eine bedeutsame kulturgeschichtliche Quelle" (DBE).

      Aus dem Russischen übersetzt von J.A.E. Schmidt. 3 Teile in 3 Bänden. Mit 8 Kupfertafeln, 2 gefalteten gestochenen Grundrissen und 1 mehrfach gefalteten gestochenen Karte. Die Tafeln zeigen Trachten und Schrifttafeln, die Grundrisse zeigen Peking sowie das russische Kloster in Peking, die Karte zeigt den Reiseverlauf. - Timkowski machte sich vor allem durch seine Beschreibung und Kartierung der doppelten Marschroute durch die Wüste Gobi, die er von Kjachta nach Peking und zurück... durchzog (Henze), verdient. - "Das Schicksal verschönerte mein Leben durch ein seltenes, unvergeßliches Ereignis: ich sah China." Mit diesen Worten beginnen die Aufzeichnungen im Reise-Tagebuch von Georg Timkowski (1790-1875), der am 12. September einige Mitglieder der russischen Mission in die Hauptstadt Chinas begleiten soll. Aufgrund eines Sondervertrages zwischen den beiden Staaten sind russische Bürger die einzigen westlichen Ausländer, die zu dieser Zeit auf dem Landweg einreisen dürfen. Vom sibirischen Kiachta, dem günstigsten Ausgangspunkt nördlich der Mongolei, führt ihr Weg direkt südlich nach Urga, dann durch die Wüste Gobi bis zur Karawanenstadt Kalgan und von dort aus in acht Tagen nach Peking, wo sie am 14. Dezember eintreffen. Sechs Monate bleiben Timkowski Zeit, bis er mit anderen Missionaren die Rückreise antritt. Auf "kaiserlichen Befehl und Kosten der Schatzkammer" wird sein Reisebericht 1824 in St. Petersburg herausgegeben. Im Jahr darauf erscheint die deutsche Publikation. - 010

        Index Ornithologicus, sive systema ornithologiae; complectens avium divisionem in classes, ordines, genera, species, ipsarumque varietates: adjectis synonymis, locis, descriptionibus .

      London: Sotheby, 1790 - Quarto,two volumes, 920 pp.Early half morocco and marbled boards, hinges cracked and partially detached, ex library with the stamps of the Royal Australasian Ornithological Society if Australia. The two volume index of Latham's monumental General Synopsis of Birds, complete in ten volumes published 1781-1802. Dr John Latham, a successful medical practitioner, was the pre-eminent ornithologist of his day. He was a prominent figure in the formation of the Linnean Society and built up a substantial collection of bird skins. This led to his ambitious project of describing and illustrating all the known birds, with many newly discovered Australian birds figured. He drew, etched and coloured many of the plates. His book is a remarkable achievement considering that Linnaeus listed only 444 bird species in 1758 but by 1802 Latham had listed 3000 species. He continued to work well into old age on his General History and died in 1837, aged 97.

        Nouveau Dictionnaire Français, a l'usage de toutes les Municipalités, les Milices nationales, et de tous les Patriotes, composé par un Aristocrate, dédié à l'Assemblée dite Nationale, pour servir à l'Histoire de la Révolution de France. Et c'est la Vérité, comme on dit, toute nue

      . 2 p.l., 70, [2] pp. 8vo, cont. pale blue wrappers, stitched as issued, uncut. Paris: "Une imprimerie aristocratique," 1790. First edition of a scarce anonymous satirical work, attributed by Brunet to the celebrated writer, Rivarol (1753-1801). An avowed monarchist, he developed a form of satire which mocked certain groups and esteemed figures of the time by facetiously praising them. From 1790 to 1792 he edited the Actes des Apôtres, an anti-revolutionary publication, but fearing the escalating violence, he fled to Brussels and eventually London where he was welcomed by William Pitt and Edmund Burke. This is a dictionary of prominent people and terms, written in a vituperative tone as demonstrated in the foreword: "I am an aristocrat, and I congratulate myself on that fact…I found it necessary…to sacrifice politeness in favor of the truth." He employs the dictionary format in clever ways as he attacks the unlawful overthrowing of the king. For example, under "Roi" he writes "Voyez Esclave" which in return refers the reader back to "Roi." Describing the Marquis de La Fayette, he writes: "He pretends to be a great man, but has none of the qualities: no energy, no character, a very mediocre esprit…" On the Assemblée ("so-called") nationale: "Everything there is absurd, right up to the name it has given itself against the wishes of the nation and popular opinion. It is a mixture of brigands, cowards, and imbeciles…" Fine uncut copy. ❧ Brunet, Suppl., 185-86. N.B.G., Vol. 42, cols. 328-33. Saricks 805-"Attributed to Brunet to M. de Rivarol, but on very tenuous evidence.".

        Reise nach China durch die Mongoley in den Jahren 1820 und 1821.

      Aus dem Russischen übersetzt von J.A.E. Schmidt. 3 Teile in 3 Bänden. Mit 8 Kupfertafeln, 2 gefalteten gestochenen Grundrissen und 1 mehrfach gefalteten gestochenen Karte. Die Tafeln zeigen Trachten und Schrifttafeln, die Grundrisse zeigen Peking sowie das russische Kloster in Peking, die Karte zeigt den Reiseverlauf. - Timkowski machte sich vor allem durch seine Beschreibung und Kartierung der doppelten Marschroute durch die Wüste Gobi, die er von Kjachta nach Peking und zurück... durchzog (Henze), verdient. - "Das Schicksal verschönerte mein Leben durch ein seltenes, unvergeßliches Ereignis: ich sah China." Mit diesen Worten beginnen die Aufzeichnungen im Reise-Tagebuch von Georg Timkowski (1790-1875), der am 12. September einige Mitglieder der russischen Mission in die Hauptstadt Chinas begleiten soll. Aufgrund eines Sondervertrages zwischen den beiden Staaten sind russische Bürger die einzigen westlichen Ausländer, die zu dieser Zeit auf dem Landweg einreisen dürfen. Vom sibirischen Kiachta, dem günstigsten Ausgangspunkt nördlich der Mongolei, führt ihr Weg direkt südlich nach Urga, dann durch die Wüste Gobi bis zur Karawanenstadt Kalgan und von dort aus in acht Tagen nach Peking, wo sie am 14. Dezember eintreffen. Sechs Monate bleiben Timkowski Zeit, bis er mit anderen Missionaren die Rückreise antritt. Auf "kaiserlichen Befehl und Kosten der Schatzkammer" wird sein Reisebericht 1824 in St. Petersburg herausgegeben. Im Jahr darauf erscheint die deutsche Publikation. - 010

        Supplement au Neptune Oriental

      A rare collection of charts from, from the Neptune Oriental, including maps of the Middle East and South East Asia; all the maps in excellent condition, from the library of Baron Reille. The volume comprises the following charts: Carte generale de la Mer Rouge avec un plan du Port de Suez; Arabie, avec plan de Giddah; Arabie, route de la Fregate Venus, rade de Moka; Carte du Golfe de Suez; Carte des cotes de Guzerat, de Cancan et de Canara; Carte de la partie Meridionale de la presqueile de L´Inde qui comprend l´Ile de Ceylan avec la Cote de Coromandel et de la Cote de Malabar; Plan d une partie des cours de la Riviere de Saigon; Cote de la Cochinchine depuis le Cap Bonhornen; three maps of the Baye de Saigon; Plan de la Baye de Manille et ses environs verifie sur la Fregate La Meduse en 1789; Carte d´une partie de la Mer de Chine... d´apres les observations du Gen Rosily. Mannevillete (1707 - 1780) was a French sailor and hydrographer, famous for his use of instruments to correct the latitudes given by explorers; in 1745 the first Neptune Oriental was published, a major cartographical achievement and a practical resource for navigators. The 1775 edition encompassed the majority of the known world. His access to up-to-date sources of information -such as explorer´s narratives- and his eagerness to constantly update the cartography of his maps, turn them into some of the most accurate of the 18th century. Provenance: baron Reille.

        MEDICAL BOTANY. [and] A SUPPLEMENT TO MEDICAL BOTANY

      London: Printed for the author by James Phillips, 1790-94. FIRST EDITION. This beautifully illustrated botanical lists all of the plants that had been described in materia medica published to date by the Royal College of Physicians, and it was the standard work on British pharmacopeia for nearly a century. Physician William Woodville (1752-1805) was an early proponent of small pox inoculation, and was appointed physician to the London Smallpox and Inoculation Hospital, where he brightened the grim surroundings by constructing a garden of medicinal plants. As a botany enthusiast and member of the Linneaen society, Woodville was dismayed at the lack of an up-to-date illustrated British materia medica, and rectified the lack with the present work, employing the noted botanical artist James Sowerby to do the engravings. The result is a work as beautiful as it is informative, with delicately drawn and colored plates of great accuracy and aesthetic appeal. Trained at the Royal Academy of Art, Sowerby (1757-1822) had worked on William Curtis' "Flora Londinensis" and "Botanical Magazine," and would go on to produce "English Botany," the first extensive description of British flora. Former owner Isaac George Manley (ca. 1755-1837) was a distinguished naval officer who began his career as a 13-year-old apprentice to the ship's master on Captain Cook's first voyage to the Pacific. During his three years on the Endeavour, Manley rose to the rank of midshipman and earned a fine recommendation from Cook. He was originally slated to serve on Cook's second voyage aboard Resolution, but unknown circumstances kept him in English waters. He eventually rose to the rank of Vice Admiral of the Red, the fourth highest rank in the British Navy; only 14 men outranked him. He lived to the ripe old age of 82, and was the last surviving member of Endeavour's crew. This set had previously belonged to his father, a wealthy barrister.. 233 x 182 mm. (9 1/8 x 7 1/8"). Four volumes. FIRST EDITION. Contemporary tree calf, expertly rebacked with sprinkled calf, raised bands flanked by thick gilt rules, one red and one black label. WITH 274 LOVELY HAND-COLORED ENGRAVED PLATES by James Sowerby, as called for. Front pastedowns with engraved armorial bookplate of Isaac George Manley; rear pastedowns with engraved armorial bookplate of John Manley. Nissen 2183; Pritzel 10398; Henrey II, 30-32. Extremities a bit rubbed, one board with tiny wormhole, but the bindings quite sound. Half a dozen plates with marginal browning, another half dozen with freckled foxing, noticeable on one plate, otherwise an excellent set, quite clean, fresh, and bright with attractively colored plates.

        L'Isola di Sicilia divisa nelle sue valli

      Roma 1790 - Carta tratta dal "Nuovo Atlante Geografico Universale delineato sulle ultime osservazioni", edito a Roma dal 1792 fino al 1801, opera che la Calcografia Camerale commissionò al Cassini al fine di sostituire l’ormai obsoleto "Mercurio Geografico". Giovanni Maria Cassini, Chierico Regolare Somasco fu geografo e cartografo, ma anche intagliatore di architetture e prospettive - uno dei migliori discepoli di Giovanni Battista Piranesi - Cassini fu uno degli ultimi sferografi italiani del Settecento ed i suoi globi ebbero una notevole diffusione, come pure questo "Nuovo Atlante Geografico". Incisione in rame, in ottimo stato di conservazione. An uncommon map, published in the 'Nuovo Atlante Geografico Universale', with a decorative title cartouche, by Giovanni Maria Cassini, a Somasco monk. He was geographer and cartographer but he was also good at engraving architectural items and perspectives – he was one of the best disciples Giovanni Battista Piranesi had. Moreover, Cassini was one of the last artists to engrave spheres in the XVIII century and his globes were quite famous and widespread, and realized the most important Italian Atlas of the XVIII century; his maps always bear a cartouche, extremely rich in colours and details. Copperplate, very good condition. L. Dufour - A. La Gumina, "Imago Siciliae", p. 239; Sicilia 1477-1861 - La collezione Spagnolo- Patermo, n. 268 Dimensioni 485 355mm

        Elements of Moral Science.

      Edinburgh: printed for T. Cadell, and William Creech, 1790 - Octavo (209 x 129 mm). Contemporary polished tree calf, red morocco labels to spine, compartments ruled in gilt. With the errata repositioned, tipped-in to title page verso. Extremities rubbed, corners bumped and a little worn, spine lightly faded, front hinge cracked, endpapers browned from turn-ins and light offsetting from bookplate, a very good copy. Armorial bookplate of Sir William Forbes of Pitsligo to front pastedown. First edition, volume I only; volume II was published in 1793. As the professor of moral philosophy and logic at Marischal College, Aberdeen from 1760 to 1803, Beattie delivered some 300 or so lectures annually to final year arts students. "He was a gifted and conscientious teacher, as shown by the surviving notes taken in his lectures by his students, by a journal he kept of exactly what he had taught in each session over a thirty-two-year period, and by testimonials from those whom he had taught, such as Alexander Chalmers . These discourses ranged widely over psychology, ethics, literary criticism, and natural religion" (ODNB). Elements of Moral Science promises to summarise and enhance Beattie's lecture series "to assist the memory of his hearers" (Advertisement). Sir William Forbes, 6th Baronet Pitsligo (1739-1806) was a prominent Scottish banker, philanthropist, and writer, and long-time friend of James Beattie. Forbes was the author's of Beattie's biography, published in 1806 as "An Account of the Life and Writings of James Beattie". He was also a friend of James Boswell (described in the Tour of the Hebrides as "a man of whom too much good cannot be said") and through him became a member of Samuel Johnson's literary dining club.

        [LA PEROUSE] La journée des dupes : pièce tragi-politi-comique :

      représentée sur le Théatre National par les grands Comédiens de la Patrie. [Paris : [s.n.], 1790. Octavo, modern marbled wrappers, 86 pp, engraved head-piece; a fine copy. Attributed to N. Bergasse and to A.M.J. Chasténet, marquis de Puysegur, this satirical play counts amongst its main characters the French explorer La Pérouse and his "Indian" (i.e. Polynesian) servant, O Paria. The other characters, all important figures in the French Revolution, have their names thinly disguised, but they includeMirabeau, Lafayette, Bailly and Montmorency. The ships ofLa Pérouse's expedition left Port Jackson in early March, 1788. This was presumably their last contact with Europeans.La Pérouse's last letter, dispatched from Sydney on the British ship Alexander, informed the French authorities that he expected to return to France by June 1789. However, the expedition of d'Entrecasteaux in search ofLa Pérouse did not depart France until the end of September 1791. During 1790, the year in whichLa journée des dupes was written, performed and published, nothing of the fate of La Pérouse and his men was known, and speculation must have been rife that the expedition was either shipwrecked or had perished somewhere in the Pacific. In the play, the character of La Pérouse represents the aristocracy. A figure as distant and "out-of-touch" with reality as could possibly be imagined at the time, he is unable to comprehend the enormous transformation that has taken place in French society in his absence, blind to the fact that the Ancien Régime has been subverted. When he describes himself as "a traveller", the mob demand to see his passport, informing him that since the people have obtained their freedom, every citizen must carry this form of identification. At the end of the play the barbarism and extreme violence of the Revolution is viciously parodied when O Paria, La Pérouse's Polynesian servant, exhorts his master to return to France with him, where, as an "authentic" cannibal, he may partake in the feast of severed heads, mutilated corpses and human flesh, accounts of which have piqued his appetite. Three copies are recorded in Australian collections (National Library of Australia; University of Melbourne Library; State Library of New South Wales).

        Rowland Hill, 1. Viscount Hill, (1772-1842) signierte Briefumschlagsvorderseite mit Freimarke datiert 1839 signed free front dated 1839

      11,5 x 8 cm dekorativ mit Bild auf schwarzen 10 x 15 cmFotokarton montiert Autograph mounted with picture on decorative black cardboardtadelloser ZustandLifelong authenticity guarantee! Lebenslange Echtheitsgarantie!Hill erlernte die Kriegswissenschaften auf der Militärakademie in Straßburg und trat 1790 als Fähnrich in die britische Armee ein. Bereits 1793 wurde er zum Hauptmann befördert, rückte dann schnell zum Major und Oberstleutnant auf. Als Oberst des 90. Infanterieregiments wurde er 1801 in Ägypten verwundet. 1803 führte Hill eine Brigade in Irland.Er ging 1808 als Generalmajor nach Portugal. Dort nahm er an dem gesamten Peninsular War teil. In der Schlacht von Vimeiro kommandierte er eine Brigade, kam aber nicht zum Einsatz. Später zeichnete er sich unter Sir John Moore auf dem Rückzug nach La Coruña und unter Arthur Wellesley, dem späteren Herzog von Wellington, in den Schlachten von Talavera (28. Juli 1809) und Busaco (27. September 1810) aus. Hier führte er die 2. Infanteriedivision.1811 erhielt er als Generalleutnant den Befehl über ein Armeekorps, mit dem er am 28. Oktober 1811 General Gérard bei Arroyo de Molinos schlug und am 16. Mai 1812 die Festung Almarez überrumpelte. Bei Vitoria befehligte er am 21. Juni 1813 den rechten Flügel. In den Schlachten bei Nivelle, Orthez und Toulouse konnte er ihn erfolgreich einsetzen. Als sein Meisterstück gilt jedoch die Verteidigung des Ortes Saint-Pierre-d?Irube gegen eine doppelt so starke Übermacht der Franzosen in der Schlacht an der Nive am 13. Dezember 1813. Hill war mit seinen Einheiten von den Truppen Wellesleys abgeschnitten nachdem eine Pontonbrücke vom reißenden Fluss zerstört worden war.Am 17. Mai 1814 wurde er als Baron Hill, of Almaraz and of Hawkstone in the County of Shrewsbury in den erblichen Adelsstand erhoben. Vor Wellingtons Ankunft befehligte er 1815 die britische Armee in Belgien. Er befehligte in der Schlacht von Waterloo das II. Korps und führte den berühmten Angriff von Sir Frederick Adams Brigade gegen die Kaiserliche Garde. Danach wurde er zweiter Befehlshaber der Besatzungsarmee in Frankreich.Weil absehbar war, dass er keine männlichen Abkömmlinge haben würde, wurde ihm 16. Januar 1816 der weitere erbliche Adelstitel Baron Hill, of Almarez and of Hawkestone and Hardwicke in the County of Shrewsbury verliehen. Diese Verleihung erfolgte mit einem besonderen Vermerk, dass auch die männlichen Abkömmlinge seines älteren Bruders John Hill (1769?1814) den Titel erben könnten.1825 wurde Hill zum General befördert und wurde 1827 Gouverneur von Plymouth, im Februar 1828 Oberbefehlshaber der britischen Armee.Im August 1842 trat er in den Ruhestand und wurde am 27. September 1842 zum Viscount Hill, of Hawkestone and of Hardwicke in the County of Shrewsbury erhoben. Der Titel wurde mit dem gleichen besonderen Vermerk verliehen wie die Baronie von 1816. Rowland Hill starb auf seinem Landsitz Hardwicke Grange bei Shrewsbury am 10. Dezember 1842. Seine Viscountcy und seine Baronie von 1816 erbte sein Neffe Rowland Hill (1800?1875), seine Baronie von 1814 erlosch.(Quelle: Wikipedia) A Free Frank was a mark applied by means of a hand-stamp to parliamentary mail in Britain to indicate that the mailed item did not require postage. The privilege of free franking was granted to four different classes: Members of Parliament peers sitting in the House of Lords office-holders, largely as stipulated by Acts of Parliament and to archbishops and bishops sitting in the House of Lords. Requirement for free franking were that the mailed cover (letter or packet) had to be signed by the official sender. As a result, free franks were avidly sought during the first three decades of the nineteenth century for autograph collections. This was accomplished by cutting out the front panels of the envelope which carried the inscriptions which were required under the use of this privilege. These panels are referred to by collectors as free fronts. In 1840 as a result of various abuses and excesses that had plagued the British Post office for many years, Rowland Hill's reforms brought an end to the Free franking privilege in 1840 when he introduced the postage stamp to Britain.[1](Quelle: Wikipedia)

        George Washington’s Eight State of the Union Addresses - A Complete Collection, 1790 - 1796

      Boston, MA 1790 - Newspapers. Massachusetts Centinel and Columbian Sentinel. Eight 4-page issues. January 16, 1790 - December 14, 1796. Boston, MA. 32 pp. This remarkable collection of the first eight annual messages to Congress shows the emerging foundation of this American tradition and Constitutional mandate. Delivered as nearly all Americans in the new nation would have received it-in a newspaper-each address conveys the accomplishments, growth, and challenges, both foreign and domestic, of the new Republic. These addresses include some of Washington's most memorable pronouncements to Congress, including:To be prepared for war is one of the most effectual means of preserving peace.Knowledge is in every country the surest basis of public happiness.The laws you have already passed for the establishment of a judiciary system, have opened the doors of justice to all descriptions of persons.the revenues for the present year is likely to supersede the necessity of additional burthens on the communityI have obeyed the suffrage which commanded me to resume the Executive power.If we desire to avoid insult, we must be able to repel it; if we desire to secure peace,.it must be known that we are at all times ready for war.with the deepest regret do I announce to you that during your recess some of the citizens of the United States have been found capable of insurrection.the will of the majority shall prevail.Faithful to ourselves, we have violated no obligation to others.our country exhibits a spectacle of national happiness never surpassedit a sacred duty to exercise with firmness and energy the constitutional powers with which I am vested, yet it appears to me no less consistent with the public good than it is with my personal feelings to mingle in the operations of Government every degree of moderation and tenderness which the national justice, dignity, and safety may permit.To an active external commerce the protection of a naval force is indispensable.a primary object of such a national institution should be the education of our youth in the science of government.I.congratulate you and my country on the success of the experiment. Historical BackgroundArticle II, Section 3, of the U.S. Constitution requires that the president "shall from time to time give to the Congress information of the State of the Union, and recommend to their consideration such measures as he shall judge necessary and expedient." As with many other aspects of the Presidency, George Washington established patterns that his successors followed. Between 1790 and 1796, Washington delivered eight annual addresses to Congress to fulfill his Constitutional obligations.President John Adams followed Washington's practice of appearing in person before Congress to deliver his address, but President Thomas Jefferson feared the practice seemed too much like the British monarch's custom of presenting mandates to Parliament in person, rather than making recommendations, as the U.S. Constitution required. He and his successors throughout the nineteenth century sent written annual messages to Congress, which a clerk read to the assembled legislators. In 1913, President Woodrow Wilson returned to Washington's practice of delivering an oral address to Congress. After a brief reversion to written messages from 1924 to 1932, President Franklin D. Roosevelt inaugurated the modern oral State of the Union address in 1934. Although there have been occasional exceptions, most Presidents since have delivered an annual oral message to a joint session of Congress, usually early in each year, to fulfill their Constitutional obligation. Published in newspapers since 1790, broadcast on radio since 1923, televised since 1947, and webcast on the Internet since 2002, the annual State of the Union messages are also addressed to the American people. In these major speeches, Presidents recount the accomplishments of their administrations and make policy recommendations. (See website for full description)

        Discourse on the Love of Our Country

      1790. (AMERICAN REVOLUTION) PRICE, Richard. A Discourse on the Love of Our Country, Delivered on Nov. 4, 1789… to the Society for Commemorating the Revolution in Great Britain. With an Appendix… London: T. Cadell, 1790. Octavo, period-style full tree calf gilt, red morocco spine label, marbled endpapers; pp. 51, 34. $2250.Third edition, the scarce first expanded edition of Price's controversial work, issued only one year after the first edition, documenting progress in human rights from England's Glorious Revolution to the American and French Revolutions, sparking Burke's refutation in Reflections on the Revolution in France (1790) and Wollstonecraft's endorsement in Vindication of the Rights of Men (1790). Beautifully bound.Richard Price, a close friend of Franklin and John Adams, was ""the most influential British advocate of American independence"" (Howes P586). In November 1789, within months of the French Revolution, Price stood before a London meeting of the Society for the Commemoration of England's 1688 Glorious Revolution and, with this controversial Discourse in praise of revolution, triggered a war of words that sparked Burke's incendiary refutation of Price in Reflections on the Revolution in France (1790), and prompted a ringing endorsement from Wollstonecraft's Vindication of the Rights of Men (1790). In this Discourse Price triumphantly traces the course of human rights furthered by revolution—from England's Glorious Revolution to the American and French Revolutions. ""Be encouraged, all ye friends of freedom,"" he writes. ""Behold, the light you have struck out, after setting America free, reflected to France… Tremble all ye oppressors of the world!… You cannot now hold the world in darkness."" Above all, Price's Discourse remains a powerful and eloquent ""essay on patriotism, its true nature, its rights and duties""(Thomas, 150). Third English edition, preceded by the 1789 first edition (London): this expanded edition with substantial additions to the separately paginated Appendix that contains a printing of the French Declaration of Rights. Published same year as the first American edition. With rear advertisement leaf. Goldsmith I:14554. ESTC T10660. See Goldsmith I:14055; Kress B1697; Evans 22814. Text fresh with only faint marginal dampstaining to several leaves not affecting text. A highly desirable near-fine copy, beautifully bound.

        Collection of Antique Spectacles from Europe and China

      Europe & Asia, 1790. United Kingdom, Germany, France, China, circa 1790-1940. An outstanding collection of 62 spectacles featuring a few very rare examples and including a scant few opticians' diagnostic and measuring tools. Some are tinted, some fold, some attach to the ear with string while others sit simply on one's nose, some were used by professionals and others would have been purchased by only the affluent, some are in their original cases. The lot contained in three glass top wooden display cases. Only 2 lenses are chipped, two stems broken, otherwise all spectacles are in very good and original condition, a pleasing and expansive representation of specs. An abundant and tangible history of spectacles made in the late 1700s, through the 1800s, and up to the mid-1900s, including some vision testing and lens measuring specimens, this collection serves well to illustrate the making of optical lenses and frames, the shifts in trends and mindsets towards eyewear, and the multiple applications for magnification through glass. [In the 1700s, spectacles were made by hand. The century's most important contributions to eyewear were the invention of side or temple pieces that rest over the ear, the first appearing for the public in 1728, and Benjamin Franklin's invention of bifocals in 1784. Round lenses were almost universal until the end of the 18th century when oval lenses became fashionable.] The most unique and uncommon example of historic eyewear here is a pair of folding spectacles from China, circa 1790-1820, with threads to reach the ears, and housed in an elegant hand-crafted round wooden case with beaded draw string for closure. Also from the late 1700s to early 1800s, the collection features a pair of wig spectacles with a more or less flat bridge and straight temples made of horn or composite. Specialized magnifier eyeglasses are a highlight in this collection. Exceedingly scarce is the pair of 1800s surgeon's magnifying glasses with large square lenses. Another unusual magnifying eyewear possibly dating to the late 1700s features a very small single lens mounted to a post which stretches high from the bridge. Most likely from Germany circa 1925, a style known as the "fernrohrbrille" or telescope glasses, was also used for magnifying. Two monocle magnifying reading glasses are also present. Ten (10) "pince-nez' specimens are included, dating circa 1870-1910, most having metal frames, silver, copper or gold; two are in original owner's cases, one tinted for sun protection. Pince-nez have no temples, but are fit snugly on the bridge of the nose. [A popular style of inexpensive, everyday spectacles was the pince-nez, a French term meaning "nose pincher". Invented some five hundred years earlier, the pince-nez reappeared and was first developed in France circa 1840. They were imported to America after the 1850s. They became very popular as middle-class eyeglasses for both men and women before the end of the 19th century and were worn until about 1920. In America, they gained popularity from frequent use by public figures such as U.S. Presidents Teddy Roosevelt. ] Eight (8) Edwardian era spectacles with thin metal frames and stems are distinct for their large and notably round ear shaping. Five (5) examples this particular style's successor features straighter stems, though is still made of thin metal, one of the present examples having folding or double-hinged stems. The lot also includes two (2) half lens models and three (3) pairs with folding temples (one fully in tact, two with broken temples). [London instrument-maker and optician James Ayscough, invented this first double-hinged temple in 1752. He described these sides as "so contrived as to press neither upon the nose nor upon the temples."] Nine (9) pair of folding opera spectacles, also known as lorgnettes, circa 1850-1890, illustrate style and functionality. An innovative style of eyewear, several feature a trigger release button on the handle to open up the frames. One stem is made of ceramic and ornately decorated with a floral pattern. [A lorgnette is a pair of spectacles with a handle, used to hold them in place, rather than fitting over the ears or nose. Lorgnettes were developed around 1780 from scissor spectacles. Early designs consisted of a pair of eyeglasses with a single long handle. In the 1800s spectacles were considered evidence of old age and infirmity. As a result, people preferred to wear spectacles only when they were needed. This was especially true for women. Those who could afford it, purchased hand-held designs such as the lorgnette to avoid having glasses on their faces. In 1830, a French manufacturer designed a hinged bridge with a spring, which allowed the eyeglasses to be folded. Lorgnettes became extremely popular during the mid to late 1800s.] Three (3) unique pairs of folding sunglasses offer side protection over and above the tinted front lens, two of these are in the style of tinted motoring glasses with blue lenses, and one is pair of steampunk goggles with mesh sideshields. [Tinted lenses first became popular during the 17th century.] For the professionals in the betterment of one's sight, we find an 1870s style optician's lens trial frame made of copper half circles notched with lines and measurement values, a frame without lenses, an optometrist's green and red lensed tool for duochrome testing, and a pair of spectacles with only one blacked out lens with a hole at its center, perhaps for light testing. From Germany we find a pair of Masten-Brille prescription eye glasses in the original metal case, together with original prescription written by an optometrist in Wilmersdorf, Berlin in 1943. Most unique among the European cases is a frog mouth case, cleverly designed oblong lined box which were typically made in the mid to late 1800s, this one belonging to George Jackson & Sons Ltd. a wholesale druggist in Manchester. . Very Good.
