        A full enquiry into the subject of suicide. To which are added (as being closely connected with the subject) two treatises on duelling and gaming.

      London Rivington 1790 - Two volumes, 4to., [xxvi], 388, [iv]; [xvi], 405, [xxiii] pp., modern calf backed marbled boards gilt, vellum tips, occasional slight foxing, overall an excellent copy. Charles Moore (1743-1811), was rector of Cuxton and later a preacher at Canterbury Cathedral. In the present work Moore shows little sympathy for suicides, condemning the act as an affront to nature, God, society, and the individual's own interests since it might deprive him of heaven. However he shows even less sympathy for philosophers who display some compassion forsuicides, famously denouncing David Hume, who had also written on the subject, as a "more pernicious and destructive member of society than even the profligate and abandoned liver" (volume 2: 54). He finishes the book with a list of twelve things that might help a person resist the temptation to take their own life, including a reminder that "temperance and employment are the great bulwarks of health, contentment, and happiness." Notwithstanding his views, Moore's work is of historical value as it was: "Up to his (i.e. Moore) time the most extensive treatise on the natural, social, moral and religious aspects of suicide, the risk of which the psychiatrist must continually bear in mind. From it is taken his historical survey showing the roots of modern legal attitudes and why Coroners still prefer the verdict of "accidental death" even to "suicide while of unsound mind".( Hunter and MacAlpine, Three Hundred Years of Psychiatry, 1535-186).

        View of Venice]. Platea S. Mariae Formosae, ejusque Templum (Plate no VIII).

      Venice: c 1790 - Engraving after drawings by Canaletto. Overall dimensions 55.5cm by 40.5 cm. "Self-styled as painter, architect, and engraver, Visentini enjoyed a long career in Venice where he was connected to the Academia and to the artistic and publishing circle centred around Consul Joseph Smith. Visentini's etchings are distinguished in the confidence and authority of their perspectival projection and etched line. Visentini's buildings seldom sag and never "sink" under their own weight into the water of the canals as they occasionally might in the work of Carlevaris and Mariechi. Canaletto's compositions are quite various and are refreshingly dramatic in the contrast between the large foreground buildings and the smaller ones in the receding perspective. These views were crucial to forming the image of Venice in the mind of its visitors" (Millard).

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, coloritura coeva dei contorni, leggere bruniture, per il resto in ottimo stato di conservazione. Dimensioni mm. 500x370 ogni lastra. L'Atlante del Cassini fu ristampato dalla Calcografia Camerale nel primo quarto del XIX secolo, prima del 1839. Solo gli esemplari di prima edizione come questo sono stampati su carta vergata coeva e sono colorati a mano in epoca. Le tirature del XIX secolo sono già su carta meccanica, priva di vergelle, e generalmente in bianco e nero." - FIRST EDITION, CONTEMPORARY OUTLINE COLOUR - The Italian painter and engraver, Giovanni Maria Cassini, produced this splendid map of as part of his epic three - volume atlas. Published in: Nuovo atlante geografico universale delineato sulle ultime osservazioni. Roma, Calcografia camerale, 1792 - 1801. Cassini 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 with fine original hand colour, some foxing, otherwise in very good condition. The Cassini's Atlas was reprinted by the Calcografia Camerale in the first quarter of XIXth century (before 1839). Only the first edition of the atlas is printed on contemporary laid paper, while the late issue are on XIXth century paper and often without colour. Roma Rome

        INSTRUCTIONS DE LA COLONIE DE L'ISLE DE FRANCE, A SES DÉPUTÉS EN L'ASSEMBLÉE NATIONALE [wrapper title].

      Isle de France: Imprimerie Royale, 1790. - [2],9pp. Folio. Printed self-wrappers. Folded sheets, several leaves loose. Moderate wear and soiling, heavier to wrapper. Wrapper with some minor loss, not affecting text. Good. Early and unrecorded imprint from the colonial press at the French colony of Mauritius, also known as the Ile de France. An extract from the journals of the "Délibérations & Arretés de L'Assemblée-Générale de la Colonie de l'Isle de France," dated Sept. 25, 1790, this document records the steps made to establish what was largely self-government at the outset of the French Revolution. The Dutch were the first Europeans to become interested in the island, taking possession in 1598. After exploiting the island's dense forests for a century and introducing the cultivation of sugar cane and cotton, in 1710 the Dutch abandoned the colony. The French soon claimed it as "Ile de France," and the island remained under the control of the French East India Company until 1767. During the long war between France and England at the beginning of the 19th century, Mauritius proved to be an important strategic naval base, and as a result the British took charge of the island in 1810, and the Treaty of Paris confirmed official British possession in 1814. It remained an important sugar producing colony, and in the 20th century agricultural production was expanded to include tea, rice, and other produce. Printing began on Mauritius in 1768. During the French period, until 1810, only about 400 imprints were produced, mostly in the form of official documents and newspapers, though there are also almanacs and a few other items. All are quite rare. No copies located in OCLC, and not recorded by Toussaint in his bibliography of Mauritius imprints.

        To the Queen This Book of Etchings from Papers cut by The Right Honorable Lady Templeton

      London: J.F. Tomkins, 1790. Tomkins, Peltro William. Small oblong quarto. (4)ff., + 12 plates, loosely inserted. Engraved title page with vignette, plus twelve plates printed on orange paper, etched by P.W. Tomkins after designs by Elizabeth Upton, Baroness Templetown. This suite of designs features women and children in pastoral attire performing a wide array of activities, including hide-and-seek, dancing, spinning, etc. Most of these scenes include a cherubic Cupid-like figure, who, in what seems to be the last plate in the series, appears lifeless atop a bier before which a woman with a dog on a leash weeps. Baroness Templetown is best-known for her cut-paper figures that were used on Wedgewood jasperware. This is very likely a later issue of this portfolio: despite the orange paper bearing tax stamps with the correct date, the paper used in the binding bears an 1840 watermark, and the marbling pattern used on the covers best reflects early 19th-century stylistic cues. This is a very fine example of a book that is quite uncommon in commerce, showing only a few minor defects to the thin paper on which the colored plates are mounted.

        Le Palais-Royal. Première partie. Les Filles de l'Allée-des-soupirs. Seconde partie. Les Sunamites. Troisième partie. Les Converseuses.

      Paris, au Palais-Royal dabord, puis Partout, même chez Guillot, 1790.3 volumes in-12 de 280; 248; 288 pages, demi-veau caramel, dos lisses ornés de filets et fleurons dorés, pièces de titre rouges, tranches rouges. Quelques petites brunissures, petite restauration de papier au faux-titre du premier volume. Reliures modernes, comme souvent pour ce texte. Illustré de trois beaux frontispices dépliants intitulés: "Les trente-deux filles dans l'allée des soupirs", "Le Cirque" et "La Colonnade". Le second, ayant subi un léger dégât, est doublé sur quelques centimètres. Edition originale, composée et imprimée par Restif lui-même en 1789. Il s'est mis en scène sous le nom de M. Aquillin-des-Escopettes. L'avis qui précède le Palais-Royal commence ainsi: " Tandis que des journalistes mensongers répandent le venin et la terreur, tandis que des âmes atroces cherches à détruire la confiance, et, par un air de tristesse, aggravent nos malheurs, ne serait-il pas à propos de montrer que la Nation a conservé le goût du plaisir, qu'elle n'est point accablée et qu'elle veut rire encore? Nous donc, célibataires jadis célèbres, un peu singuliers, peut-être bizarres, avons entrepris de ramener la Nation à des idées plus douces, et, tout en attaquant des abus, de présenter quelquefois l'attrait du plaisir. Nous allons former une galeries de tableaux gaiement tristes..." La première page du texte porte un note qui semble avoir été mise là pour dérouter les curieux qui voudraient reconnaitre l'auteur de cet ouvrage pornographique: " Nous composons ce petit ouvrage anti-philosophique, dans un voyage fait très clandestinement à Paris, cette année 1789". P. - L. Jacob, Bibliographie et iconographie de tous les ouvrages de Restif de la Bretonne, p. 338, XL, n°1. Restif considérait cet ouvrage comme la suite des Contemporaines, approfondi d'une façon plus détaillée et plus crue son célèbre Pornographe, et dévoile "les différentes manières de se divertir à Paris, avec les femmes, ou de les faire servir au plaisir des hommes...".

Boissel esquisse un plan d'achèvement de la Révolution par la voie d'un régime politique démocratique servant de prémices à un régime de communauté des biens ()" (P.-A.

        A MONUMENTAL RUN OF NINETY-NINE REVOLUTIONARY WAR PERIOD RHODE ISLAND SESSION LAWS, 1770 - 1783].

      Providence, Newport, Attleboro, & Rehoboth. 1770-1790. - Fourteen volumes. Ninety-nine separate imprints, publication details and pagination provided in the listing below. Folio. Uniform 20th-century buckram, gilt leather labels. Some leaves detached, clipped, or chipped. Some repairs, occasional toning or tanning, some small ink library stamps, scattered contemporary ink marginalia, some dampstaining, an occasional closed tear. Some leaves closely trimmed, a handful of leaves in early manuscript facsimile. Overall, a very good set in decent condition. An unprecedented assemblage of Rhode Island colonial and early state laws, most printed during the Revolutionary War. The great majority of the imprints are signed at the end by the Secretary of the colony and then State of Rhode Island, Henry Ward, who served in that position from December 1760 to November 1797. Almost all retain the official seal affixed to the front page of each imprint. The first thirty-two imprints represent Rhode Island colonial law, but beginning in July 1776, the word "Colony" becomes "State" and remains so from then on. In the August 1772 session the assembly addresses the Gaspee Affair: "Whereas his Honor the Governor hath laid before this Assembly a full and particular Narrative of the Measures he hath pursued in Consequence of the burning of His Majesty’s Schooner, the Gaspee; and of the Steps he hath taken to discover the Perpetrators of that atrocious Piece of Villainy." The assembly then proceeds to offer a reward of £100 sterling to anyone who discovers the guilty parties of the "said Crime." The Gaspee Affair was a significant incident in Rhode Island in the lead-up to the American Revolution. On June 9, 1772 near the city of Warwick, Rhode Island, a British customs ship called the Gaspee ran aground in shallow water while chasing a packet boat. Shortly after the wreck a group of American colonists (Providence members of the Sons of Liberty, in fact) attacked, boarded, looted, and torched the ship, putting a bullet in the ship's lieutenant in the process. The British government investigated the affair, intending to find enough evidence to try the culprits for treason. The inquiry failed to obtain sufficient evidence, and the matter was closed. News of the incident spread throughout the colonies. Committees of correspondence in Boston, Virginia, and other parts of Colonial British America were especially concerned with the prospect of Americans being sent to England for trial. A popular pamphlet utilized the Gaspee incident, and it became an early rallying cry from those colonists focused on ending British rule in America. The affair was one of the most significant events in Rhode Island on the road to revolution. There is a voluminous amount in these imprints regarding the American Revolution. For instance, in the July 1776 imprint, a rather important month for American independence, the Rhode Island legislature passed an act that punished anyone who acknowledged "the King of Great- Britain to be their Sovereign" with a fine of £100 sterling. This act is also the first here to refer to the Declaration of Independence when it mentions "the General Congress of the United States of America, by their Resolution of the Fourth Instant." Subsequent months and years see the assembly form military units; provide supplies, provisions, regulations, and pay to the troops; institute a draft; and much more. The laws for February 1778 include a resolution to appoint three delegates empowered to sign the Articles of Confederation for Rhode Island. In fact, 1778 was a particularly busy year for the state. France had formally allied itself with the American forces early in the year, and together the two allies fought against the British at the Battle of Rhode Island (also known as the Battle of Quaker Hill or the Siege of Newport) in August. Several resolutions in these session laws address supplies, the wounded, prisoner exchanges, and more related to the war effort against "the Enemy at Rhode- Island," which the Amer

Grotesque architecture, or rural amusement; consisting of plans, elevations, and sections, for huts, retreats, summer and winter hermitages . cascades, baths, mosques, moresque pavilions, grotesque and rustic seats, green houses &c, London, I.J. Taylor, 1790. 8vo. 14pp + (2)pp publisher's list. With engraved frontispiece by A. Thornthwaite, and 28 engraved plates. Ochre morocco, with gilt grotto design on front cover, similarly blind-stamped on back, gilt title on cover and spine (by Peter Foster, with his fish device inside back cover). A finely produced catalogue of measured plans for grottoes, hermitages and exotic garden buldings. Oriental or rustic in inspiration, several have Indian or Turkish motifs - lotus leaf bases, columns terminating in palms, mosque-like domes; there are 4 dramatic designs for picturesque cascades. An innovation of note is the frontispiece of a landscape setting which incorporates in one plate most of Wrighte's designs; it was intended to help the 'prospective client' visualize his choice of feature in situ. Archer says 'Wrighte was the first to publish such a scene in a book of architectural designs - showing specific designs set into natural surroundings in a consciously artful way'. Wrighte cites Thomas Shaw's Travels . (in) Barbary and the Levant, (1738) as his authority on mosques. The second edition (the first was published in 1767). A very good copy.

The complete minutes of the 1789 convention to revise the 1776 Pennsylvania constitution. The new constitution was ratified in 1790. Often considered a conservative reaction against the excesses of democracy incorporated into the earlier 1776 constitution, the revised document created a bi-cameral legislature and vested strong executive power in the governor. With this constitution Pennsylvania went from the most egalitarian state government to the most reactionary. The proceedings of the convention were printed in three parts in folio, and Evans provides each with a separate entry, though the first two are paginated continuously. EVANS 22764, 22765, 22766.

In the August 1772 session the assembly addresses the Gaspee Affair: "Whereas his Honor the Governor hath laid before this Assembly a full and particular Narrative of the Measures he hath pursued in Consequence of the burning of His Majesty's Schooner, the Gaspee; and of the Steps he hath taken to discover the Perpetrators of that atrocious Piece of Villainy." The assembly then proceeds to offer a reward of £100 sterling to anyone who discovers the guilty parties of the "said Crime." The Gaspee Affair was a significant incident in Rhode Island in the lead-up to the American Revolution. On June 9, 1772 near the city of Warwick, Rhode Island, a British customs ship called the Gaspee ran aground in shallow water while chasing a packet boat. Shortly after the wreck a group of American colonists (Providence members of the Sons of Liberty, in fact) attacked, boarded, looted, and torched the ship, putting a bullet in the ship's lieutenant in the process. The British government investigated the affair, intending to find enough evidence to try the culprits for treason. The inquiry failed to obtain sufficient evidence, and the matter was closed. News of the incident spread throughout the colonies. Committees of correspondence in Boston, Virginia, and other parts of Colonial British America were especially concerned with the prospect of Americans being sent to England for trial. A popular pamphlet utilized the Gaspee incident, and it became an early rallying cry from those colonists focused on ending British rule in America. The affair was one of the most significant events in Rhode Island on the road to revolution. There is a voluminous amount in these imprints regarding the American Revolution. For instance, in the July 1776 imprint, a rather important month for American independence, the Rhode Island legislature passed an act that punished anyone who acknowledged "the King of Great- Britain to be their Sovereign" with a fine of £100 sterling. This act is also the first here to refer to the Declaration of Independence when it mentions "the General Congress of the United States of America, by their Resolution of the Fourth Instant...." Subsequent months and years see the assembly form military units; provide supplies, provisions, regulations, and pay to the troops; institute a draft; and much more. The laws for February 1778 include a resolution to appoint three delegates empowered to sign the Articles of Confederation for Rhode Island. In fact, 1778 was a particularly busy year for the state. France had formally allied itself with the American forces early in the year, and together the two allies fought against the British at the Battle of Rhode Island (also known as the Battle of Quaker Hill or the Siege of Newport) in August. Several resolutions in these session laws address supplies, the wounded, prisoner exchanges, and more related to the war effort against "the Enemy at Rhode- Island," which the American and French forces were fighting in Newport and Aquidneck Island. In the summer of 1780, Rhode Island again played a crucial role in the alliance between the United States and France, assisting the French forces under the command of Lieut. Gen. Rochambeau in landing at Newport. The French forces were on their way to join Gen. Washington's army as part of the "Expédition Particulière" or "Special Expedition," an effort to send French infantry reinforcements to America. They would wait in Newport for an entire year before joining Washington's army for a planned but aborted attack on New York City before marching south to Virginia, eventually assisting to defeat the British at Yorktown. Numerous resolutions starting in July 1780 address the French in Newport, including providing housing to French Commissary-General Lewis Ethis de Corny, making way for the French army to use the ferries between Providence and Newport, drafting a "congratulatory Address to the Commanders of the French Army and Fleet, on their arrival in this State," drafting an address to Rochambeau, and preparing a "Dinner and Entertainment" for the arriving French forces on Aug. 10. In May 1781 the assembly passed a resolution to provide teams for moving the French army from Newport to Providence, the first step in Rochambeau's march from Newport to join Washington's forces.

        Vedute del Museo Pio-Clementino.

      Rome 1790 - Three double-page folding engraved plates after Miccinelli and Costa, framed and glazed 85 x 197 cm. Magnificent series of extra-large plates illustrating the Vatican Museum at the end of the eighteenth century by Vincenzo Feoli (1750 - 1831). The Pio-Clementino museum, named after the two popes who oversaw its foundation, Clement XIV Ganganelli (1769-1774) and Pius VI Braschi (1775-1799), houses the nucleus of the pontifical collections of classical sculpture dates back to the original collection of pope Julius II (1503-1513) which was housed in the Cortile delle Statue (today the Octagonal Court). During the second half of the 18th century the pontifical collections were enormously expanded both as a result of excavations being carried out in Rome and Lazio, and by donations from collectors and antiquaries. The influence of Enlightenment thinking resulted in the inauguration of a museum in the modern sense, open to the public and explicitly charged with the task of safeguarding antique works of art, and promoting the study and understanding of them.

         Carte des provinces de Bretagne, Maine, Anjou, et partie de celles de Normandie, Touraine et Poitou. Copiée sur les cartes de l'Académie de M.r de Cassini, réduites par M.r Capitaine.

      [circa 1790]. En 32 sections montées sur toile bordée de soie bordeaux et pliées, formant une carte de 0,82 x 1,31 m ; sous étui de papier (fond manquant). Très belle carte manuscrite, copie de la réduction au 1/345600 de la carte de Cassini que Louis Capitaine, adjoint et successeur de Cassini de Thury à la direction de la grande carte de France (dite carte de Cassini), était en train de réaliser. La carte comprend la côte orientale de la France, depuis l'île de Noirmoutier jusqu'à la partie méridionale de celle de Jersey, y compris Belle-Île et Ouessant. Au nord elle est limitée par Bayeux et Pont-l'Évêque, à l'est par Bernay et Tours, et au sud par Thouars. Les limites des provinces sont marquées par un trait pointillé souligné de rouge. Par rapport à la carte de Capitaine, le copiste a ajouté plusieurs détails qui n'y figurent pas : de petites montagnes figurant les Monts d'Arrée en Bretagne, les bancs de sable et les récifs au large de l'île de Sein. Superbe cartouche de titre au lavis d'encre de Chine, orné des blasons des provinces citées dans le titre, avec pour dédicace "Présenté à Monsieur frère du roy par son très humble, très obéissant et très fidèle serviteur le chev. de La Rozière", décorée des armoiries royales. Ce chevalier de La Rozière est probablement Jean Carlet de La Rozière (né en 1770), fils aîné de Louis-François Carlet, marquis de La Rozière, stratège et militaire français. En 1788 le chevalier de La Rozière fut nommé adjoint au corps de l'état-major-général de l'armée en Bretagne. L'échelle est en toises, la carte est orientée par les points cardinaux inscrits dans les marges, où sont également portées les latitudes et longitudes. L'exemplaire est dans un état de conservation exceptionnel.
