        Geo-Hydrographic Survey of the Isle of Madeira with the Dezertas and Porto Santo Islands geometrically taken in the year 1788. By William Johnston Esq[ui]r[e]. This Chart drawn from actual Surveys taken with the Permission of His Excellency Don Diego Perreira Forjas Coutinho, Knight of the Order of Christ, Governor General and Commander in Chief of the Island of Madeira and Porto Santo &c. &c. &c. a discerning and liberal Promoter of every useful improvement in Science. Is respectfully dedicated To the Right Honourable John Henry Petty Earl Wycombe in testimony of the high consideration in which His Lordship is held by His Lordship's most humble and faithful humble Servant William Johnston of Madeira.

      London, Digested and Published by W. Faden, Geographer to the King, Jan[uar]y 1st, 1791. - Madeira Two engraved charts, on two sheets joined, fine original hand-colour, inset plan of Funchal, first chart with view of Funchal and plan of the road of Funchal. Large and detailed plan of Madeira. The British had particularly strong links with Madeira. The island had been under Portuguese rule since its discovery in 1418 - Portugal being the country with which England had (and still has) its oldest diplomatic alliance - based on the Treaty of Windsor of 1386. This alliance was further strengthened when, in 1662, Charles II married Catherine of Braganza. As a result Englishmen were allowed to settle on the island. Many of the new arrivals would later become involved in the lucrative Madeira port trade. It is likely that William Johnston, the author of the present chart, was involved in the industry, as one William Johnston is recorded as a partner in Newton, Gordon, and Johnston from 1777-1791. The company - now trading as Cossart, Gordon & Co. - was established by Francis Newton in 1745 and is the oldest company in the Madeira wine trade. These strong links were coupled with the island's strategic significance as a principal port of call for the burgeoning transatlantic trade. Attached to the left of the chart is a 'Plan of the Road of Funchal', with detailed soundings, anchorages, and observations made by Thomas Howe in 1762; whose observations were communicated by Alexander Dalrymple to the admiralty. We are aware of only one other recorded example of the charts together joined; that in the British Library. BLMC Maps * 68165.(6.); Maps * 68165.(9.).

        An Account of the principal Lazarettos in Europe; with various papers relative to the plague: Together with Further Observations on Some Foreign Prisons and Hospitals; and Additional Remarks on the Present State of Those in Great Britain and Ireland The Second Edition, with Additions.

      London: Printed for J. Johnson C. Dilly and T. Cadell. 1791 - Large 4to, 297 x 222 mms., pp. vi, 259 [260 - 272 Index], 32, 22 folding engraved plates, no half-title, bound in late 19th century half blue hard grain morocco, blue linen boards, spine richly gilt; front joint a little rubbed, but a fine copy. The text includes an appendix, "containing observations concerning foreign prisons and hospitals: collected by Mr. Howard, in his concluding tour. Together with two letters to Mr. Howard, from John Haygarth M.D. edited by John Aikin." Howard published this in 1789, shortly before his death in January, 1790. R. W. England, in "Who Wrote John Howard's Text? The State of Prisons as a Dissenting Exercise" (British Journal of Criminology, 1993), notes that Howard makes no clear mention of writing the work himself, and that Aikin, in his account of Howard, acknowledged the assistance of "an old retired friend," who then passed the text to Richard Price. Quoting from many of Howard's letters and other documents, England argues that Howard was more than just assisted by various Dissenters in the production of his books, but that they were responsible for making them into clear English prose. One might add that the first known lazaretto, a kind of quarantine station for travellers, often none too salubrious, was established in Venice in 1403, [Attributes: Soft Cover]

Slightly worn and thumbed; inner margin of title guarded just affecting edge of printed border; occasional markings in pencil and crayon. . First Edition, 4th issue of the Prussian Quartets. Haberkamp Text p. 326. BUC p. 709. RISM M6169 (not distinguishing among issues). "The Prussian Quartets, K. 575, 589 and 590, form a group, since they are dedicated to King Friedrich Wilhelm in Berlin, who played the violoncello - or at least they were written with an eye towards such a dedication, for the first edition bears no dedication at all. The royal virtuosity had to be taken into account, and so in almost every movement of the three works the violoncello has a predominant part, while the second violin and viola retreat into the background. The quartets are slightly concertante, and yet they are purest chamber music. Mozart sometimes completely forgets his royal patron - as for instance in the minuet of the last quartet. These are three works that originated under the most dreadful spiritual oppression, and yet they rise to heights of pure felicity." Einstein: Mozart, p. 184.

Demi Basane blonde d'époque. Dos lisse à filets. Plats de papier marbrés. Titre et tomaison dorés. Tâches sur les dos. La préface de l'ouvrage indique que les Mémoires de Richelieu sont moins une seule biographie de Richelieu que de mémoires couvrant la fin du règne de louis XIV, la Régence et le règne de Louis XV. Le présent ouvrage prétend remédier à ces mémoires et présenter le maréchal tel qu'il était en vérité "c'est le héros en déshabillé que nous présentons au public". Comme l'indique le titre, outre son rôle historique, le livre dévoile les relations qu'entretint Richelieu avec les femmes, "toutes les femmes se disputaient son coeur. Les aimant toutes, il prétendait leur devoir un égal hommage." L'ouvrage Contient un grand nombre de lettres originales et de mémoires particuliers écrits par Richelieu, ou adressés à Richelieu. Type d'ouvrage historique nouveau et qui aura un grand avenir, le livre par divers éclairage tâches de peindre clairement l'homme que fut Richelieu, avec ses vertus et ses vices.

        Remarks on forest scenery, and other woodland views, (relative chiefly to picturesque beauty) illustrated by the scenes of New-Forest in Hampshire. In three books

      printed for R. Blamire, Strand M.DCC.XCI. [1791], London - First Edition of this seminal work, complete in two volumes. Tall 8vo's: [4],vii,[1],328,iv,7,[1]; [4],308,iii,[1],xxpp, with 32 leaves of tinted aquatints and soft-ground etchings by Samuel Aikin. Recent cinnamon ribbed cloth spines stamped in gilt, beige paper-covered boards. Remarkably well-preserved set: bindings pristine, pages fresh, clean and completely free of foxing with only light offsetting from the plates. Provenance: bookplates of Walter Charles James (1816-1893), 1st Baron Northbourne, laid in. James was elected to the House of Commons for Hull as a Tory. He acquired Betteshanger House, in Kent, in 1850, and commissioned George Devey to oversee extensions and alterations. James was a friend of William Ewart Gladstone and in 1884, during Gladstone's second term as Prime Minister, was raised to the peerage as Baron Northbourne, of Betteshanger in the County of Kent. Abbey, Scenery, 149. Henrey, pp. 531-32. Barbier, pp. 79-81 Divided into three books, two in volume one. Trees as singular objects—specimens—the "foundation of all scenery," are the subject of book one. The second book considers trees in groups, "under their various modes of composition, from the clump to the forest." 2qazThe third book offers a lengthy appreciation of the New Forest, the tract extending from southwest Hampshire into southeast Wiltshire, created as a royal forest by William I in about 1079 for the royal hunt. In the eighteenth century, plantations were created there as a source of timber for the Royal Navy, after some 4000 oak were lost In the Great Storm of 1703. N. B.

        MEMOIRE SUR UN NOUVEAU PASSAGE DE LA MER DU NORD A LA MER DU SUD.

      Paris: De l'Imprimerie de Didot fils aine, 1791. - [4],70pp. plus colored folding map, 20 x 22 inches. With [4]pp. pamphlet bound in at rear (as is sometimes the case, though not noted by Sabin), being a prospectus for the published edition of Fleurieu's account of Marchand's circumnavigation and voyage to the Northwest Coast. Modern half morocco and marbled boards, spine richly gilt. Small hole in titlepage, repaired with tissue, a couple instances of very minor light foxing. Manuscript correction to two lines on one page. Near fine, untrimmed. A rare and exceptionally early plan for building a canal across the Isthmus of Darien, thereby connecting the Atlantic and Pacific oceans, and containing a fabulous map of the region. From the earliest attempts to find a northwest passage, the desire to find a sea route across the Americas, thereby linking Europe with Asia, had been a long-standing goal. This text is one of the earliest proposals for a water route across Nicaragua, a route that was considered a viable option until the construction of the Panama Canal in the early 20th century. Bastide explains in great detail the feasibility and course of the route, and the great advantages that it would give to France. It would aid trade with French colonies in the Pacific, and on the west coast of the Americas, and with Asia. It would also help the French keep an eye on British and Spanish activities in the Pacific Northwest, as those two nations had just settled many of the controversial issues regarding Nootka Sound. The beautiful large folding map (usually lacking) in this copy has striking contemporary color, and shows Nicaragua between the ninth and thirteenth parallels, giving a clear depiction of the proposed route across the river San Juan, into Lake Nicaragua, and then across another small body of land and into the "Golfe de Papagayo." The map is a fine cartographic representation of the region, showing the river systems and mountain ranges, as well as significant cities and volcanoes. This title is not in Palau. A most interesting document, both as an example of a very early scheme to build a trans-isthmian canal, and as a French strategy to secure geopolitical advantage in the Americas, vis a vis Great Britain and Spain.

        The Pilgrim's Progress. A New [Second] Edition, divided into Chapters. [With] large explanatory and practical Notes. With the Life of the Author: by G. Burder. HANDSOME COPY OF A RARE COVENTRY ISSUE

      M. Luckman Coventry and J. Mathews 18 Strand London 1791 - 2 parts in one vol., 12mo., on laid paper, with an engraved frontispiece and 8 engraved plates, some mild age-staining (rather heavier on frontispiece and some plates), contemporary name on title; strongly and attractively bound in early nineteenth-century half roan, marbled boards tooled in gilt, back with four flat bands elaborately tooled in gilt, second compartment lettered in gilt, red sprinkled edges, a very good, firm copy in well-preserved period binding. With three pages of hymns and single-page publisher's advertisement at rear. L6 has short tear (not affecting text) and neat repair at upper margin. The work is divided into two parts as often. Burder was a Congregationalist minister [sometime active in Coventry] who began life as an engraver but subsequently played an important role in the founding of the RTS. His edition of 'The Pilgrim's Progress' (1786) is the first to be divided into chapters and was frequently reprinted. This is apparently the second Coventry printing; we have a note of an earlier (1790) version issued by Luckman & Suffield. In the earlier issue the pagination is similar but the plates include a frontispiece to each part; here the number of plates remains the same, but all are numbered for inclusion in the first part. Rare. ESTC lists only the 1786 edition. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
