        Kaart van het zuidelyk gedeelte van Afrika tot verstand van de twee Reizen van Le Vaillant".

      - Kupferstich-Karte von C. van Baarsel, ca. 1790. Ca. 40 x 58,8 cm. Faltspuren, zwei Fehlstellen im Bereich des 15. Längengrads. Not in Norwich-Stone, Maps of Africa. Compare pages 204/05, map No. 181. Seltene Karte der Reisen von Francois Levaillant in Südafrika, gestochen vom holländischen Kupferstecher C. van Baarsel (1761-1826), rechts unten mit der Stechersignatur "C. van Baarsel scuplt.". Die detaillierte Karte zeigt Südafrika mit den eingezeichneten Reiserouten (und Ereignissen). Francois Le Vaillant (1753-1824) aus Surinam unternahm in den Jahren 1783-85 zwei große Reisen durchs Kapland mit wichtigen Ergebnissen zur Kenntnis der Zoologie, besonders der Ornithologie, sowie der afrikanischen Volksstämme. Rare map of Southafrica, depicting the two journeys of F. Levaillant in 1783-1785. The map is not in Norwich-Stone, Maps of Africa, and we cannot trace it in the trade worldwide. Map 181 in Norwich-Stone is probably copied after the present map, because our map shows more details, as for ex. the "Wooning" and "Legerplats" of the journeys. Two repairs (see picture). Crease hints, two wholes at the area of the 15th longitude.

        [Pair of Original Watercolors featuring the Buffle-Headed Duck and the King Eider Duck]

      [London, 1790. Two watercolors, each on laid paper, each approximately 9¾ x 13¾ inches. Matted and framed. Two original watercolors by Sarah Stone of American species of ducks.A splendid pair of original watercolors featuring ducks by Sarah Smith (née Stone), a prolific painter of natural history subjects in London between 1777 and 1806. Stone worked exclusively for Sir Ashton Lever, documenting Lever's vast private collection of ornithological, zoological, and ethnographical specimens. Stone's work is admired today for the delicacy of the brushwork, a deft touch with color, and the requisite skill necessary to tackle such a diverse range of subject matter. Of the various subjects which Stone saw fit to translate to canvas, ornithological subjects were her favorite, and constitute the majority of her known work. Her earliest studies of birds date from 1777, when she was only seventeen years old. At the time, she concentrated her efforts on the sole subject at hand, only later adding backgrounds and other life subjects into her paintings. Stone also favored sized paper, an uncommon practice at this time in British painting, and used exceedingly fine brush strokes, with brushes used for the lightest feathers likely containing only one or two hairs. Though unsigned and undated, it is likely that the current examples emanate from this early period of Stone's work, since the ducks are featured by themselves, and on sized, laid paper, and exhibit Stone's fine brushwork. In addition, the contemporary ink annotations along the top edge are in the same hand, though not Stone's hand, as other known ornithological examples of her work dated before 1790.Whomever they belong to, the contemporary notations on Stone's work contain important information about each subject, including the name of each duck, in this case the "Buffel-headed Duck" and the male "King Duck." Following the name of each duck is a citation corresponding to John Latham's General Synopsis , published between 1781 and 1785. For example, the Buffle-headed duck carries the annotation "La. Syn. 6. p.533" which corresponds to Latham, Synopsis , volume six, page 533. A similar notation is found along the top edge of the King Eider duck. This is a practice peculiar to known examples of Stone's birds, since she and Latham were working from some of the same specimens in the Leverian Museum. Further, Latham specifies in his text for the General Synopsis that he used specimens from both his own extensive collection and that of his specimen-collecting rival, Ashton Lever. Each painting also displays an annotation in Latin along the top right edge, corresponding to the subject's Linnaean classification.Interestingly, in 1781, Lever acquired thousands of natural history specimens from Captain Cook's third voyage. It is possible that these two paintings represent ducks collected by Cook's crew on the Northwest Coast of America."During the late 1770s and throughout the 1780s, Sarah painted at Ashton Lever's museum (or the Leverian Museum, as it came to be called) in Leicester House, Leicester Square, London. She may have asked permission to draw some object from this extraordinary collection of natural history specimens, ethnographical artefacts and other curiosities, and so came to the notice of their owner. Ashton Lever soon commissioned her to record the outstanding articles, both zoological and ethnographical, in his collection. Sarah signed her watercolors, and dated some of them, but the signed and dated watercolors are in the minority" - Jackson. Indeed, Lever held a high opinion of Stone's work, commenting in an advertisement for an exhibition of over 1,000 of Stone's watercolors at his museum in 1784 that Stone had "succeeded in the effort beyond all imagination."Both of these paintings come from Credit Suisse's Americana Collection and were previously held by the Wall Street investment firm of Donaldson, Lufkin & Jenrette (acquired by Credit Suisse in August 2000). The paintings were likely acquired by Richard Jenrette at Sotheby Parke- Bernet Galleries in New York in April 1968, where Stone paintings of a Bufflehead and a King Eider were offered. In that sale, the King Eider duck achieved $350 by itself.A stunning pair of paintings from an artist whose place of importance in the history of 18th-century ornithological studies is only beginning to be realized.Jackson, Christine E. Sarah Stone. Natural Curiosities from the New Worlds . (London: Merrell Holberton and the Natural History Museum, London, 1998), pp.9-36;138.

Voici un petit livre qui n'a pas été inutile, même dans la Lombardie autrichienne. C'est l'unique motif qui m'encourage à vous en faire l'hommage". Vicaire Général de Nancy, Jean-Denis-François Camus (1752-1814) émigra dans les dernières semaines de l'année 1791 et prit la route d'Italie ; ce personnage à vocation académique, membre de plusieurs sociétés savantes de France, d'Allemagne et d'Italie, évolua avec aisance dans les milieux des érudits italiens. Il eut des contacts et des correspondances avec les plus grands d'entre eux, Tiraboschi, Bandini, Spallanzani, Giuseppe Gioeni, l'abbé Fortis, etc. Au cours de son périple italien, qui dura jusqu'à la fin de l'année 1793, ces nouvelles connaissances lui offrirent de nombreux ouvrages. Camus prit également des notes de voyage, en vue de la publication d'un Voyage en Italie, demeuré à l'état de manuscrit : une partie de ces cahiers vient d'être redécouverte.

Edizione originale di questo studio di fitoclassificazione secondo l'ordinamento linneiano. Il Gilibert (Lione, 1741-ivi, 1814), medico e naturalista, fu professore di scienze naturali in diverse università polacche (su consiglio e segnalazione di Haller) e poi alla Scuola Centrale del Dipartimento del Rodano, Presidente della Società di Agricoltura lionese, Segretario perpetuo della Società di Medicina, membro di numerose società mediche ed agricole, tra cui l'Athénée della sua città natale, nella quale ricoprì anche la carica di sindaco. Presidente della Commissione Dipartimentale durante l'assedio di Lione, nel corso di esso fu dapprima incarcerato (lui, girondino, era ovviamente osteggiato dai montagnardi) e poi liberato nel maggio 1793, divenendo Presidente della Commissione di Salute Pubblica e animando strenuamente la resistenza lionese a Robespierre e alle armate montagnarde. Obbligato alla fuga e all'esilio errabondo, condusse una serie di inenarrabili peregrinazioni che solo dopo 18 mesi lo resero al luogo natio. I suoi scritti a stampa spaziano dalla medicina (in cui incessantemente sostenne la bontà e superiorità dei rimedi naturali) alla zoologia alla botanica (in quest'àmbito lasciò tra l'altro una sistematica classificazione della flora della Lituania).

        The Riot in Broad Street on the Seventh of June 1780.

      Publish'd by John & Josiah Boydell, Cheapside & at the Shakspeare Gallery Pall Mall, Sept 29, 1790., London, - The Gordon Riots Engraved print. The Gordon Riots broke out across London in June 1780 in protest at the Papists Act, passed two years before. The Papists Act had lifted a number of the Penal Laws in Britain, which discriminated against Roman Catholics. The Protestant Association in London, led by Lord George Gordon, marched on Parliament along with other protesters to present a petition against the Act. The disturbance spread, resulting in the destruction of Newgate Prison and the Clink, and the escape of the prisoners. After several days, troops were sent against the rioters.The print was made after a painting by Francis Wheatley, commissioned by the publisher John Boydell. It shows a specific incident during the Riots, when the house of a rich Catholic Irishman, Mr Donovan, was attacked and looted. Troops arrived and fired on civilians after giving them several orders to disperse. The painting was destroyed while the engraving was being made from it, but the print was widely circulated. It is dedicated to the London Light Horse Volunteers, who helped during the riots, and was possibly commissioned to show the inadequacy of the authorities' response.James Heath (1757-1834) engraver, he was appointed historical engraver to George III in 1794.Francis Wheatley (1747-1801) painter; he was elected to the Royal Academy in 1791.

Light dust soiling along lower edge, but otherwise a clean, fine copy. Untrimmed. A very important account, dated Aug. 22, 1790, of the deliberations of a local Saint Domingue assembly in the parish of Acul on the consequences of the dissolution of the Assembly of Saint-Marc. "Et d'après ces réflexions que tout homme impartial a dû faire, l'Assemblée considerant que les malheurs dont la Colonie a été et est peut-être encore menacée, ne peuvent être prévenus que par la dissolution de l'Assemblée coloniale, qui a poussé ses erreurs à un point qui interdit de les qualifier, par égard pour les Membres abusés de cette Assemble, en inspirant le Comité du Port- au-Prince, qui armait en faveur de sa cause les bras des Colons contre leurs frères, & des matelots indisciplinés & rébelles, contre des Citoyens respectables." It is followed by a tract by Auguste-Philippe Laffon de Ladébat, representative of Acul, dated Aug. 27, 1790, on his conduct at the Colonial Assembly. A rare Saint Domingue imprint, with only two copies located, at the British Library and Columbia University.

        [AUTOGRAPH LETTER, SIGNED, FROM BARON VON STEUBEN TO THE UNITED STATES CONGRESS, REGARDING REIMBURSEMENT OF EXPENSES ACCRUED AND PAYMENT FOR SERVICES RENDERED WHILE IN THE SERVICE OF THE CONTINENTAL ARMY DURING THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION]

      New York, 1790. [7]pp. In French, with later typed English translation. Paper strip along left edge, probably originally applied for mounting, last two leaves loose, light overall toning, with just a few small edge chips, original folds, a few tender. Overall very good. An outstanding autograph letter, signed from Baron Friedrich W. Von Steuben, late inspector general of the Continental Army of the United States during the American Revolution. Baron von Steuben was released from the Prussian army for unknown reasons in 1763. Since he was the son of an army engineer, he was not born into wealth, so when his equally impoverished prince failed to find funding, Steuben decided to find an appointment in another army. He applied to Austria, Baden and France, to no avail. However, France saw his value in training the infant Continental Army in America, and put him in touch with Benjamin Franklin in Paris. The letter of introduction from Franklin exaggerated a bit, calling him a "Lieutenant General in the King of Prussia's service." Steuben was advanced travel funds, and in late September 1777 found himself in Portsmouth, NH. By December he had worked his way into Boston high society. He then went to York, Pa. where the Continental Congress had retreated from Philadelphia. Steuben made contacts and in February 1778 Congress had accepted his offer to volunteer, temporarily without pay. By the end of the month, he found himself at Valley Forge confronting an army in dire conditions. Steuben did not speak English, but could communicate in French with some of the American officers. Two such persons were Alexander Hamilton and Nathanael Greene. With their help, Steuben wrote REGULATIONS FOR THE ORDER AND DISCIPLINE OF THE TROOPS OF THE UNITED STATES (1779), the book that served as the standard United States military drill manual until the War of 1812. General Washington was so impressed with Steuben that he appointed him inspector general of the Continental Army, and eventually Steuben served as Washington's chief of staff in the final years of the war. By the 1778 campaigns, the Continental Army was coming together as a fighting force, and would go on to prevail over their better-trained English and Hessian enemies. Baron von Steuben has been given much credit for creating a successful American fighting force. He remained in the army throughout the war, taking a leave for illness just before the end, then rejoining the army in time for the Battle of Yorktown. He then helped decommission the forces and became an American citizen in 1783. He was given a large farm (around 16,000 acres) by the state of New York and a pension by Congress of $2,500, but was still in financial straits, having only a small income from lands in Europe for the duration of the war. In the present letter, Baron von Steuben argues to the United States Congress that he never intended to serve the American Army for free, but to essentially defer any reimbursements and payments until after the Americans secured victory over the British. Steuben reminds Congress of his original agreement (from the English translation): "[M]y requests were to join your Army as Volunteer, not to request any Employment until after the approval of the General in Chief and the opinion of the Army assigning me a place in which I could be useful - That I did not ask for rewards until after I had merited them, but that I expected that the expenses for my person and my suite would be defrayed...." Steuben then mentions several members of Congress with whom he met in Philadelphia before joining the American military, including future president James Madison, and Declaration signers Abraham Clark and Charles Carroll: "[T]hese men, I say, advised me simply to rely on my services rendered and on the justice and generosity of the Congress.... If my memory serves me right, I would assure that you, Sir, and Mr. Madison were then of that opinion, and it is by these opinions that I let myself be governed. I would have been quite willing to uphold this language if the circumstances had not forced me to resort to the conditions or to the contract through which I have entered the service of the United States.... All I am asking you is to speed up the decision.... Nevertheless, I have this consolation left: the truth of the facts which I have set forth cannot be denied without drawing into doubt the veracity of the most worthy and most respectable persons in the United States, of whom some have occupied and some at present occupy the most distinguished places in the Government of their country...." This communication to Congress seems to have fallen on deaf ears, as Steuben continued to meet with financial difficulties, and near bankruptcy until his friend Alexander Hamilton mortgaged his farm lands and helped find friends to settle Steuben's debts. Steuben was well- regarded and liked in many circles. In later years, he served as president of the German Society, regent of the University of the State of New York, and president of the New York branch of the Society of the Cincinnati. A substantial and significant letter from Steuben instructive of the difficult financial pressures inherent in bringing off a revolution.

      Pubd. as the Act directs by W. Byrne No. 79 Titchfield Street, 1790-1791., London, - History of the River Thames Four etchings with aquatint, coloured, view of Westminster Bridge trimmed to upper and side neatline. A set of four prints of the River Thames, produced for Joseph Farington's series 'History of the River Thames'. Farington made 76 drawings of the course of the Thames, which required some negotiation: his wife's cousin, Horace Walpole, wrote to the Earl Harcourt asking for permission for Farington to sketch on his land. There was some delay between the drawings and publication while a suitable author was found to provide the accompanying text; Farington records in his diary on 15th July 1793 that publication "will now go on uninterruptedly as Mr. Coombe (sic) has promised to supply. manuscript as wanted" (Farington). William Combe was a somewhat surprising choice. Under his pen name, Dr Syntax, Combe had previously satirised travel books, in particular the work of William Gilpin. However, Combe was also notoriously bad with money, and probably welcomed the work.The prints show Somerset House, which had been rebuilt only 16 years before by architect Sir William Chambers to be used as government offices, the new London Bridge, Blackfriars Bridge, and the old Westminster Bridge. Joseph Farington (1747-1821) was an English artist and diarist. He was an original member of the Royal Academy, and helped found the now defunct British Institution. He specialised in topographical views of Britain, which were particularly popular while continental war prevented travel. The 'History of the River Thames' was very successful. A copy was presented to George III, who "turned over every leaf " with "approbation" (Farington).Joseph Constantine Stadler (fl.1780-1822) a German engraver, who settled in London in the 1780s, and specialised in aquatint engraving.

        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." [Attributes: First Edition]

        MARIA BRUNN/bei Dachau. - Leuthner, Anton Johann Nepomuck von. Physisch-praktische Beschreibung des allgemeinen, und sonderheitlichen Gebrauches des alt-berühmten Gesundbrunnens, und mineralischen Seifenbades zu Maria Brunn nächst Moching im churpfalzbaierischen Landgerichte Dachau, Oberlandes Baiern.

      München, Anton Franz 1790 - 22,5 x 18,5 cm. 7 Bll., 127 S. Mit gefalteter Karte (Nivellierung des Quellwassers). Rosa Pappband der Zeit mit geprägten Silberfileten. Engelmann 335; Lesky 393. - Beschreibung des Heilbades Maria Brunn bei Dachau, das Leuthner, der Leibarzt des Kurfürsten Maximilian III., im Jahr 1789 erworben hatte (zu ihm Hirsch-H. III,760). - Maria Brunn nördlich von Ampermoching verdankt sein Entstehen der wundersamen Heilung eines Holzknechts im Jahr 1662 (vgl. Strauß, Heilige Quellen, 120). Erstmals beschrieben wurde es von J. Thiermayer noch im selben Jahr. Seine Beschreibung des "Gsund-Bads" wurde 1743 und 1756 mit einigen Aktualisierungen neu herausgegeben, was auf einen jahrzehntelang blühenden Badbetrieb schließen lässt. 1725 erhielt der Freiherr von Unertl die gesamte Anlage zum Geschenk. Gegen Ende des 18. Jahrhunderts muss aber das Ansehen Maria Brunns zurückgegangen sein, denn Leuthner erwarb ein recht verfallenes Anwesen. - Ohne das Kupfer mit dem Porträt des Freisinger Bischofs, dem das Werk gewidmet ist. Rücken tlw. abgeplatzt, innen gut erhalten. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Speculum Linnaeanum: sive Zoologiae Linnaeanae Illustratio; Genus Omne Accurate Explicans, repraesentansque Species Maxime Notabiles Eleganter Sculptas et Depictas....Part I

      London : J Davis, 1790 A good copy of the 1st part of what was intended to be a major zoological work by George Shaw (a co-founder of the Linnaean Society), with 4 full page illustrations by James Sowerby. In the event, only 2 parts were ever published - the work being abandoned presumably because of low subscriptions - and it is extremely rare. This copy is untrimmed and unbound as issued but without wraps. With 2 title pages, the first in Latin, 14 pages of text in Latin and English and 4 full page plates. The work started with the Apes and monkeys, and so the 4 plates are of The Barbary Ape, Maimon (Mandrill), Grey Baboon, and White Eye-Lid Monkey. Text and plates are very clean. The paper is lightly toned and the page edges are browned and nibbled. The last text page has a damaged side edge but the text is not affected.
