        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.

        A Vindication of the Rights of Men, in a Letter to the Right Honourable Edmund Burke; occasioned by his Reflections on the Revolution in France.

      London: for J. Johnson,, 1790. Octavo (220 x 132 mm). Recently bound in buff cloth-backed blue boards to style. Bristol University bookplate to front pastedown, small blind embossed stamps to title and last page, remnants of small label to lower corner of front pastedown, with Wollstonecraft's name hand written on the title page. Extremities lightly rubbed, rear backstrip a little stained, some minor foxing to contents, small nick to fore edge of sig. D8 and F7, overall an excellent copy. First edition, the first of many replies disputing the controversial and conservative assumptions made in Burke's Reflections on the Revolution in France, also published in 1790, and an important precursor to her subsequent work, A Vindication of the Rights of Women, published two years later. "Mary's fervour for the principles of the Revolution developed rapidly and was unmixed with any doubts; having learnt her politics from the Dissenters, she continued to adopt their attitudes and followed their particular struggles sympathetically. On the 4 November, the anniversary of the 1688 revolution in England, Dr. Price delivered a sermon at the Old Jewery meeting house in which he defined the nature of civil liberty. This speech sparked Burke's infuriation and led to his Reflections … Mary read them at once, and seeing the principles she had so unhesitatingly taken up as her own under attack, and a smear set upon the good name of her beloved benefactor and teacher Dr. Price, she was in a fury of indignation … The tone was impatient, the arguments sketchy. But it was redeemed by its dominant emotion, a humanitarian sympathy for the poor, and a passionate contempt for the wilful blindness of the privileged to what kept their system going" (Tomalin, pp. 93–5).

        Carta apologética a favor del título de Madre Santisima de la Luz, que goza la reyna del cielo Maria purísima señora nuestra, y de la imagen que con el mismo título se venera en algunos lugares de esta América.

      Mexico: por Felipe de Zúñiga y Ontiveros, 1790. Small 4to. [34] ff., xi [i.e., ix], [1 (blank)], 197, [1 (blank)] pp. (lacks engraved plate). The author, a Franciscan missionary and a native of León, Guanajuato, here defends the cult of the Virgin Mary that is known in Spanish as la Luz. Some opprobrium had come to be attached to the cult when the Fourth Mexican Provincial Council condemned it, but as the actions of that council were never approved or ratified by the Vatican, the condemnation was nullified.         Medina, Mexico, 79191; Palau 6095; on Alcocer, see: Archivo biográfico de España, Portugal e Iberoamérica, fiche 23, frames 47–49. Contemporary cockled vellum, lacking the buttons for its loops, and lacking also the engraving; a very few light stains to a very few pages. Actually, quite a nice copy of the text.

        [Scrap album of pictures cut out of prints].[Netherlands?, ca. 1790]. Folio (33 x 20.5 cm). A scrap album containing about 350 pictures clipped out of hand-coloured engraved prints, some with engraved texts in Dutch, French or German, and 5 of birds with real feathers in many colours mounted on the engraving to make the birds' bodies. Modern sheepskin made from old materials.

      A scrap album compiled ca. 1790 by clipping about 350 pictures out of hand-coloured engraved prints covering a wide variety of subjects and mounting them on the rectos of the album leaves. Each picture (from 1.5 x 2.5 cm to 19 x 29 cm) has been carefully cut out just outside the lines of the image itself, sometimes including thin lines connecting different parts of a scene. Several include engraved texts in Dutch, French or German, which (along with the Dutch paper of the album leaves) suggests a Dutch origin. Several series can be recognised. The prints include a French political cartoon only months before the beginning of the French Revolution, Islamic figures with German captions including one signed by the Nürnberg print publisher Johann Christoph Schmidhammer (ca. 1715?-ca. 1775/85?), a group of Far Eastern figures including one signed by the Augsburg print engraver and publisher Martin Engelbrecht (1684-1756), and the other prints seem likely to date from the period ca. 1750-ca. 1790 as well. They include series of costumes, trades, hunting scenes, carriages, musicians, military scenes, ships and boats, village and pastoral scenes, plants, animals, Jewish religious ceremonies, and more. Twenty-eight or twenty-nine come from an engraved Robinson Crusoe with French captions.The last leaf with a hole torn in the gutter margin, and a stain (from a plant pressed in the book?) slightly affecting one print, but generally in fine condition. Binding very good. A fascinating collection of pictures from 18th-century coloured prints, many from very rare series.

        Lettres Patentes Du Roi...

      Bordeaux, France, 1790. Very Good. THE HIGHLY IMPORTANT FIRST DOCUMENT GRANTING JEWS EQUALITY OF CITIZENSHIP IN EUROPE Proclamation of Equal Rights for Sephardic Jews of France in 1790 (HISTORIC BROADSIDE) Lettres Patentes Du Roi… [Letters Patent of the King… that those Jews known in France as Portuguese, Spanish and Avignonese Jews will continue to enjoy the rights of active citizens] Bordeaux, France: chez Michel Racle, Imprimeur de l’Intendance, [January 28] 1790. Broadside measures 21 inches x 15 inches with royal coat of arms insignia at top of sheet. Folds and age toning present with evidence of nail holes consistent with this notice having once been tacked up for public posting. THE EARLIEST PROCLAMATION IN EUROPE OF EQUAL RIGHTS FOR JEWS. On August 27, 1789, a newly created French National Assembly opened the doors to the French Revolution by approving “The Declaration of the Rights of Man”. Though freedom and equality were demanded of “all men”, they curiously did not include Jews. It was not until six months later that King Louis XVI, under political pressure, issued this open letter patent, dated January 28, 1790, granting equal rights to Jews, but only those of Sephardic extraction. “Louis, by the grace of God and the constitutional Law of the State…decrees… All the Portuguese, Spanish, and Avignonese Jews will continue to enjoy those rights which they have enjoyed up until now, and which are sanctioned in their favor by the Lettres Patents; consequently they will enjoy the rights of active citizens, when they fulfill the conditions required by the Assembly’s decrees…” On the eve of the Revolution, approximately 40,000 Jews were living in France. Those of Spanish and Portuguese extraction had been living quietly among the southern population, including Bordeaux and Avignon, since the end of the 15th century. They had integrated for survival, spoke French and were less observant in religious ritual, in some cases pretending to be “New Christians.” The Ashkenazim, on the other hand, were concentrated in Paris and Alsace in the north of France and spoke mainly Yiddish. This may explain why the Marranos were granted equality by the King a full year before their fellow Ashkenazim. After the great expulsion of 1492, European Jews had lived in a constant state of upheaval and insecurity but they did not vanish. England’s Oliver Cromwell readmitted them in 1655 and The Jewish Naturalization Act of 1753 finally granted citizenship, but not political rights, as these were still restricted by oath requirements. Surprisingly, Jews were not fully protected as citizens of the United States until 1824, when the Jew Bill in Maryland was enacted.

        PROCLAMATION DU ROI, SUR LE DÉCRET DE L'ASSEMBLÉE NATIONALE, DU 3 AVRIL, POUR LA LIBERTÉ DU COMMERCE DE L'INDE AU-DELÀ DU CAP DE BONNE-ESPÉRANCE [caption title]

      Rouen: L. Oursel, 1790. 3pp. [with:] [PRINTED FORM LETTER, COMPLETED IN MANUSCRIPT, CONCERNING THE PROCLAMATION]. [N.p. 1790]. [1]p. Quarto, on a folded folio sheet. Light wear and soiling. Very good. Proclamation by the Revolutionary government of France, abolishing the monopoly of the French East India Company on trade beyond the Cape of Good Hope and declaring it open to all Frenchmen. The Compagnie des Indes Orientales was established in 1664 to compete with the British and Dutch East India companies. It had considerable difficulty maintaining itself financially through its long history, and it was finally liquidated in 1769. In 1785 it was reconstituted and granted a seven-year monopoly on trade beyond the Cape of Good Hope, but the French Revolution and the democratic zeal that accompanied it, put an end to that with the present decree. The brief proclamation is accompanied by a transmittal form from the Bureau Intermediane du Departement de Montivilliers, indicating that one copy of the proclamation was sent to the recipient.

        [Scrap album of pictures cut out of prints].[Netherlands?, ca. 1790]. Folio (33 x 20.5 cm). A scrap album containing about 350 pictures clipped out of hand-coloured engraved prints, some with engraved texts in Dutch, French or German, and 5 of birds with real feathers in many colours mounted on the engraving to make the birds' bodies. Modern sheepskin made from old materials.

      A scrap album compiled ca. 1790 by clipping about 350 pictures out of hand-coloured engraved prints covering a wide variety of subjects and mounting them on the rectos of the album leaves. Each picture (from 1.5 x 2.5 cm to 19 x 29 cm) has been carefully cut out just outside the lines of the image itself, sometimes including thin lines connecting different parts of a scene. Several include engraved texts in Dutch, French or German, which (along with the Dutch paper of the album leaves) suggests a Dutch origin. Several series can be recognised. The prints include a French political cartoon only months before the beginning of the French Revolution, Islamic figures with German captions including one signed by the Nürnberg print publisher Johann Christoph Schmidhammer (ca. 1715?-ca. 1775/85?), a group of Far Eastern figures including one signed by the Augsburg print engraver and publisher Martin Engelbrecht (1684-1756), and the other prints seem likely to date from the period ca. 1750-ca. 1790 as well. They include series of costumes, trades, hunting scenes, carriages, musicians, military scenes, ships and boats, village and pastoral scenes, plants, animals, Jewish religious ceremonies, and more. Twenty-eight or twenty-nine come from an engraved Robinson Crusoe with French captions.The last leaf with a hole torn in the gutter margin, and a stain (from a plant pressed in the book?) slightly affecting one print, but generally in fine condition. Binding very good. A fascinating collection of pictures from 18th-century coloured prints, many from very rare series.

        Les Arabes en Espagne.Paris, Dondey-Dupré and sons, 1824. 8vo. Contemporary paste-paper wrappers.

      - WorldCat (5 copies); cf. Pouillon (ed.), Dictionnaire des orientalistes de langue française, nouv. éd., p. 485; Melville & Ubayadli, Christians and Moors in Spain, p. 145. Rare offprint of an article on the Islamic conquest of Spain based on Arabic sources. The first part describes the conquest by Abd al-Rahman of the Visigothic Kingdom and the establishment of the Caliphate of Córdoba. In the second part, the author describes and admires the poetry of the region before giving the first (annotated) translation into French of the elegy written by Abu al-Baqa' al-Rundi (1204-1285) on the occasion of the conquest of several Moorish cities by Castile in 1267. In it, al-Rundi describes the fall of several civilizations including the Persian Empire and the Umayyad Caliphate, before lamenting the fall of several Andalusian cities and finally urging the Arabs of North-Africa "living tranquil and serene" to come to the aid of their brethren in Spain.Jean-Baptiste-André Grangeret de Lagrance (1790-1859) was a French Arabist and translator of Arabic poetry. He had studied Arabic and Persian with Silvestre de Sacy. In 1822 he became one of the founders of the Journal Asiatique, where he published "Les Arabes en Espagne".Binding somewhat worn and some browning at the edges; a good copy.

        Unicolour, bicolour and tricolour carnations].[The Netherlands or England?, ca. 1790?]. Imperial 16mo (16 x 11.5 cm). With a series of 44 gouache drawings on laid paper, each showing a single carnation on a black flower-shaped background, in three series, designated with letters and numbers. Mid-19th-century half tanned sheepskin.

      A curious set of carnation drawings, with each flower about 2½ to 3½ cm wide and 5 to 6½ cm tall and shown on a black flower-shaped background (6 to 10 petals, nearly all with serrated edges, probably intended to reflect the carnation form). Each carnation is drawn on the recto of a single leaf with a roman capital letter or roman or arabic numeral at the at the head and an indication of the colour category at the foot, both lettered in a style similar to late 18th-century roman printing types. They are arranged in three categories: 7 "uni color" (A-G), 20 "bi color" (I-XX) and 17 "tri color" (1-17). The book may have served as a practical collector's guide.The drawings are uniform in style and drawn on a single paper stock, watermarked: fleur-de-lis on a crowned shield above "4", "WR" and "C & I Honig". We date the drawings ca. 1790 based primarily on the style of the lettering and numbers in the drawings and partly on the style of the watermark. The paper was certainly made in North Holland and the marbled paper used for the (later) binding is most common in Germany, but the labels "uni color" etc. are in English, so it remains unclear where the drawings were made.In very good condition. The marbled paper of the binding is rubbed, but the binding is otherwise very good. A series of 44 colour gouache drawings of carnations.

      I. & J. Taylor 1790 - (Rustic Furniture) Ideas For Rustic Furniture Proper For Garden Seats, Summer Houses, Hermitages, Cottages, Etc. London: I. & J. Taylor, (circa 1790). 8vo. Contemporary blue wrappers. 25 engraved plates, including title leaf. First edition. "One of the rarest of eighteenth-century furniture plate books," it was the subject of an article by Morrison Heckscher, "Eighteenth Century Rustic Furniture Designs," (Furniture History, XI, 1975, pages 59-65). Heckscher further says, "there is a consistency about the style of all these pieces. All have a delicate and ordered rusticity--what had been described as a 'regular twiginess.' All of the wooden framing elements are made from what appears to be thin, untrimmed branches. The branches of some pieces are nailed together, but more often they are lashed together with rope. Many of the chair and settee backs are 'woven' out of one or two unnaturally long branches." Looking through these plates they have an almost antler like effect. I imagine and grand hunting lodge being adorned with such furniture A rare copy with illustrated designs that have attributed the work to William Wrighte due to similarities in design styles but there are no facts to substantiate this attribution. This is the only eighteenth-century English pattern book devoted entirely to rustic furniture. Plates offer designs for chairs, stools, sofas, tables, looking glasses, and chimney pieces. original blue wrappers expertly repaired at the spine with original stitching still in place, two period ink inscriptions on the frontice / title page, “Jas. P. Pritchett 1812” and as if to suggest an author there is another ink inscription “by Halfpenny” else a nice, unsophisticated, uncut copy. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

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); the chart of discoveries along the north-east coast of Australia and Torres Strait represents "perhaps the most extensive work of coastal discovery undertake in the first few years of Australian settlement" (Parks) . 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, and led to his election to the Royal Society and his appointment as governor of New South Wales. A remarkable survival.

        Journal of a Voyage to New South Wales with Sixty-five plates of Non descript Animals, Birds, Lizards, Serpents, curious Cones of Trees and other Natural Productions

      London: J. Debrett, 1790. The uncut edges just a little dusted, otherwise absolutely fine.. Quarto, engraved title and 65 handcoloured plates; bound with the list of subscribers, early owner's inscription on first page of text; a remarkably large copy with wide margins, completely uncut; in a good modern calf binding. A superb and very large untrimmed copy of the rare coloured issue. This is the deluxe issue of the first edition of this famous First Fleet book in which the plates were coloured by hand. Especially in this form, White's Journal is one of the most beautiful of Australian colour-plate books, and one of the most attractive, as well as one of the earliest, Australian bird books. The book was an immediate success on publication, with subscribers alone accounting for seven hundred copies. It is a travel and ornithological classic by a medical voyager: John White was chief surgeon of the First Fleet, and was particularly successful in that he overcame serious medical problems in appalling conditions both on the voyage out and when the settlement was founded. He was also a keen amateur naturalist and after arriving at Port Jackson found time to accompany Phillip on two journeys of exploration. On joining the First Fleet he had begun to keep a journal in which he made notes about birds in the new colony. It was this manuscript which formed the nucleus of his journal.The natural history content makes White's particularly noteworthy amongst the First Fleet journals. Many of the plates were drawn in England by leading natural history artists of the day, such as Sarah Stone and Frederick Nodder, from original sketches done in the colony. White's interest in natural history continued until he left New South Wales in December 1794. When the convict artist Thomas Watling arrived in the colony in October 1792 he was assigned to White and in the next two years made many drawings of birds for him. It is possible that White himself had some skill as an artist and that he was responsible for the original sketches of some of the engravings here.White's journal also contains a good description of the voyage from London, with long, detailed accounts of the stops at Rio de Janeiro, Cape Town and of the colonial voyages to Norfolk Island.As Wantrup points out in a lengthy discussion in Australian Rare Books, the number of "points" that have interested collectors in the past are really rather pointless now that many copies have been properly described. However in the interest of completeness, we note that this copy: 1) has the standard form of the List of Plates; 2) has the List of Subscribers, which is not always present; 3) has the draughtsmen's names somewhat faintly printed (as we know to be normal) but certainly not deteriorated; and 4) has the earlier uncancelled state of the Wattled Merops text on p.240, no longer thought to be the great rarity that it once was. This copy does not contain 4 pp. advertisements sometimes found but by no means present in all copies. Provenance: Caroline Grevis (1774-1818), inscription on first page of text dated 30 December 1815; Alan Wambeek, modern bookplate.

        A Vindication of the Rights of Men, in a Letter to the Right Honourable Edmund Burke; occasioned by his Reflections on the Revolution in France.

      London: for J. Johnson, 1790 - Octavo (220 x 132 mm). Recently bound in buff cloth-backed blue boards to style. Bristol University bookplate to front pastedown, small blind embossed stamps to title and last page, remnants of small label to lower corner of front pastedown, with Wollstonecraft's name hand written on the title page. Extremities lightly rubbed, rear backstrip a little stained, some minor foxing to contents, small nick to fore edge of sig. D8 and F7, overall an excellent copy. First edition, the first of many replies disputing the controversial and conservative assumptions made in Burke's Reflections on the Revolution in France, also published in 1790, and an important precursor to her subsequent work, A Vindication of the Rights of Women, published two years later. "Mary's fervour for the principles of the Revolution developed rapidly and was unmixed with any doubts; having learnt her politics from the Dissenters, she continued to adopt their attitudes and followed their particular struggles sympathetically. On the 4 November, the anniversary of the 1688 revolution in England, Dr. Price delivered a sermon at the Old Jewery meeting house in which he defined the nature of civil liberty. This speech sparked Burke's infuriation and led to his Reflections Mary read them at once, and seeing the principles she had so unhesitatingly taken up as her own under attack, and a smear set upon the good name of her beloved benefactor and teacher Dr. Price, she was in a fury of indignation The tone was impatient, the arguments sketchy. But it was redeemed by its dominant emotion, a humanitarian sympathy for the poor, and a passionate contempt for the wilful blindness of the privileged to what kept their system going" (Tomalin, pp. 93–5). Windle 4a. See Todd, Dictionary of British Women Writers and Tomalin, The Life & Death of Mary Wollstonecraft. [Attributes: First Edition]

Spine rich gilt with floral vignettes, small red morocco label with gilt title.

The author of this work is Reverend William Hamilton (1755-1797), an Irish cleric and magistrate who should not be confused with his contemporary namesake, William Hamilton, the volcanologist. He provided the first really detailed description of the geologically diverse and interesting northern coast of Ireland. Ward and Carozzi mention several similar English titles, as well as the German edition of the second paper by Ferber, which has a separate title page but consecutive page numbering. Of the latter, the British Museum library catalogue only lists the 1808 edition. Extremities a bit rubbed, front top joint starting. Otherwise a very good, clean copy. Rare. Cat. BM(NH) 2 p. 566.

      Parma 1790 - Rarissima carta da gioco pubblicata a Parma nel 1790 (ma incisa a Roma da Marco di Pietro). La carta fa parte del set di carte da gioco 'Geografia dell'Europa'. L’unico set completo conosciuto è al British Museum (oggi British Library) nella collezione di Lady Charlotte Schreiber (1812 – 1895). Traduttrice e donna d’affari, durante la sua vita mise insieme una vasta collezione di carte da gioco dei vari Paesi. La Geografia dell'Europa è un set di 77 carte, ciascuna delle quali è decorata con una mappa di una regione d'Europa. Il mazzo di carte è destinato al gioco tarocchi, ma invece che i cinque semi tradizionali - coppe, spade, denari, bastoni e arcani maggiori– abbiamo 5 tipologie di carte distinte da cinque colori corrispondenti ai diversi territori che vi sono rappresentati: il marrone indica l’Italia; il rosso la Germania; il verde la Francia; il giallo la Spagna e il blu il resto d’Europa. La carta "Spiegazione du Jeu", che prende il posto del Matto, porta il nome dell'incisore, "Gr. Par Marco di Pietro a Roma," mentre sulla carta del Mondo è riportato "Pour le Royal College des Nobles de Parme." Le iscrizioni sono in lingua francese. Il verso delle carte è decorato con lo stemma della città di Parma. Incisione su rame, coloritura originale, in ottime condizioni. Extremely rare playing card published in Parma in 1790 (but engraved in Rome by Marco di Pietro). The map is part of the 'Geography of Europe' set of playing cards. The only known set of this cards was inn the British Museum (now British Library) in the collection of Lady Charlotte Schreiber. The late Lady Charlotte Schreiber formed during her lifetime an extensive collection of the Playing-Cards of various countries Geography of Europe; Parma, 1790. Imperfect pack of 77, each being a map of some part of Europe. It is arranged to be used for the tarocchi game, but the five divisions, cups, swords, coins, clubs, and atutti, are indicated only by borders of five different colours, brown, red, green, yellow, and blue. The first is devoted to Italy, the second to Germany, Switzerland, and the Low Countries, the third to France, the fourth to Spain and Portugal, and the fifth to the rest of Europe. The " Explication du Jeu," which takes the place of Matto, bears the engraver's name, " Gr. par Marco di Pietro a Rome," and No. XXI of the atutti, which is a " Mappe-monde," is inscribed " Pour le Royal College des Nobles de Parme." Inscriptions all in French. Backs decorated with the arms of Parma. Copperplate with original colour, very good condition.
