        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]

        L'Encyclopédie enfantine, ou Magazin pour les petits enfans. Edition augmentŽe.

      Dresde: Chez les Frres Walther, 1791. - This work is divided into several sections, including etiquette and "good grace," precepts of a father to his children, general ideas and definitions of things that children ought to be taught, short definitions of the different arts and sciences, and precepts of civilized life. Various different stylistic formats are used, including poems, fables, and a series of questions and answers, in an effort to make this didactic work more accessible. The terminal ads list other works by this author. Charlotte-Marie de Los-Rios, who wrote a series of educational works, came from a family of printers, her father being the Lyonnaise printer Jean Mesplet and her uncle the Avignon printer Franois-Prothade Girard and her brother Fleury Mesplet, the founder of the first Canadian newspaper. Her mother, Antoinette Mesplet, was arrested for trying to smuggle prohibited books from Lyon to her brother-in-law in Avignon, and her husband, Jean-Franois de Los Rios, gained notoriety as an occasional dealer in prohibited books. Jean-Franois de Los Rios wrote a number of books himself, including Bibliographie Instructive, ou Notice de quelques Livres rares (1777), an unusual catalogue of some 800 rare books he sold during his career, including books that came from the libraries of the Jesuits at Lyon, Tournon, and Macon and from the private libraries of the abbŽs Piole and Gindre. De Los Rios, who was by now at the pinnacle of his career, was no doubt instrumental in promoting his wifeÕs educational works. Octavo. [2], 233, [3] pp. Engraved frontispiece, engraved title-page vignette. Original light blue boards, gilt paper spine label, authorÕs name in manuscript on spine. Spine lightly browned, a little foxing to covers, occasional light foxing to text. A very good copy overall. "Edition augmentŽe," though with the same collation as the 1771 Dresden apparent first edition, with a cancel title-page, leading one to believe it is simply a later issue of the first edition. All editions are rare. This work is sometimes attributed to AngŽlique de Los Rios. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        A Sua Eccellenza Miledi Maria Fox

      Rome 1791 - John Wilton-Ely plate 937The watermark that is present is number 75 in John Wilton-Ely on page 1175 and is dated in the early 1790'sThis plate is the from the series "Vasi, candelabri, cippi, sarcofagi, tripodi, lucerne. . .)Giovanni Battista Piranesi was one of the leading figures in the development of the neoclassical style in the late 18th Century. As architect, archaeologist, artist, designer, collector, and antiquities dealer, he produced a series of etchings and engravings depicting the glories of ancient Rome. These fine prints served as source material for other architects and designers. He was born in Venice on the 4th October 1720. The son of a stone-mason, he was educated as an architect under his maternal uncle Matto Lucchesi and under Carlo Zucchi. In 1740 Piranesi left Venice for Rome, there he studied etching under Giuseppe Vasi. He appears to have had little success in these early years in Rome and as his father was unable to continue his allowance returned to Venice in 1744. He was soon, however, encouraged to return to Rome by Giuseppe Wagner, a successful engraver and publisher of Venice. This time he achieved success, and a constant series of works, illustrating architecture and antiquities, issued from his studio until his death in 1778. His output in etched plates is enormous (about 1000 numbers in all). While he achieved a work of magnitude in pictorial records of Roman monuments of antiquity and of the Renaissance, and gave immense archæological, antiquarian, and topographical value to this work, the artistic quality always predominates. He was fond of peopling his ruins with Callot-like figures, and "like Callot makes great use of the swelling line" (Hind). He had two sons and a daughter, all of whom helped him in his work and after his death carried on his publications in Rome and Paris. They were Francesco (born 1748 or 1756; died 1810), Pietro (who lived till after 1807) and Laura (born 1750). His position in Rome and in Europe after 1760 was a prominent one. He was well-known figure to the wealthy English visitors in Rome and was elected a Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries in 1757. Most of his life was passed in Rome, etching, writing, publishing, and directing a workshop in which the restoration and sale of antiques played a considerable part.He was famous for his poetic views of Rome and also his fantastic imaginary interiors. His skills, allied to his deep knowledge of archaeology, provided the substance for his Vedute (Views), a series of 135 etchings of ancient and contemporary Rome, published from 1745 onwards, which established the popular mental image of the city. Ornamenti Antichi was a collection of 110 etchings documenting large sculptural vases, together with other antiquities excavated (and in some cases created) in Italy in the 18th century. The prints were initially separately issued and sold by Piranesi over a period of several years and subsequently collected in two folio volumes, each with its own title page, in 1778. They illustrate a wide range of genuine antiquities, as well as Piranesi's own collections, from utilitarian objects such as cinerary urns, lamps, and sarcophagi to monumental vases. The plates in Vasi often included text by Piranesi with information about where the objects were discovered and their contemporary location, and the prints bore dedications to his patrons, colleagues, visitors and influential people. He believed absolutely in the supremacy of Roman over Greek architecture, an argument he expounded most forcefully in his Della magnificenza ed architettura dei Romani (On the Magnificence of Roman Architecture, 1761). his romanticized views and imaginary interiors had a profound effect on stage designers, painters of capricci such as Hubert Robert, and even writers: William Beckford, the author of the Gothic novel and Vathek . In the 20th century his imaginary interiors have been admired by the Surrealists . Reference: John Wilton-Ely. Giovanni

        A General History of Quadrupeds

      Newcastle Upon Tyne - S. Hodgson, R. Beilby and T. Bewick 1791 - The second edition of Thomas Bewick's beautifully illustrated work on the mammals of the world. The second edition is much improved and enlarged from the first. Thomas Bewick, 1753-1828, was an English wood engraver and ornithologist. Bewick showed, at a very early age, a talent for drawing. He had no lessons in art. At the age of 14 he was apprenticed to Ralph Beilby, an engraver in Newcastle. In 1775 he received a premium from the Royal Society for the Encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce. In 1776 he became a partner in Beilby's workshop. A General History of Quadrupeds first appeared in 1790. The Quadrupeds deals with mammals of the whole world, and is particularly thorough on some of the domestic animals. It includes bats and seals but does not include whales or dolphins. Bewick was helped by his intimate knowledge of the habits of animals acquired during his constant excursions into the country. Bewick's art is considered the pinnacle of its medium. This is likely due to his methods: Bewick, unlike his predecessors, would carve in harder woods, notably box wood, against the grain, using fine tools normally favoured by metal engravers. This proved to be far superior, and has been the dominant method used since. Ralph Beilby, 1744-1817, was an English engraver, working chiefly on silver and copper. Beilby became a silversmith, jeweller, and seal-engraver under his father and elder brothers. In addition, he became a copper engraver to meet the demand of the then North England market. In 1767 Thomas Bewick was apprenticed to him. The texts in Bewick's A General History of Quadrupeds (1790) and History of British Birds: Land Birds (1797) were drafted by Beilby and revised by Bewick. Collated complete. Condition: Expertly rebacked with a morocco spine and contemporary calf boards. Externally, wear to corners and slight rubbing to boards though spine remains smart. Internally, firmly bound. Loss to rear free endpaper. The tails of three pages have been removed and then neatly repaired, not affecting text. There are contemporary copperplate inscriptions tosome pages. Generally bright with tidemarks to two front blanks. Some scattered foxing through, though many pages do remain clean. Marks to title page. Overall: VERY GOOD [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Pages clipped at top right corner, not affecting text.& & AMONG THE EARLIEST PROCLAMATIONS IN EUROPE OF EQUAL RIGHTS FOR BOTH SEPHARDI AND ASHKENAZI JEWS.& & On the eve of the French Revolution, there were approximately 40,000 Jews 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 spoke French, had become an integral part of the mercantile community and were less observant of 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, kept to themselves and spoke mainly Yiddish. They were considered to be “less French” than the Marranos and not equal to citizenship.& & On August 27, 1789 a newly created French National Assembly threw open the doors to the 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 an open letter patent granting equal rights to Jews, but only those of Sephardic extraction. In the closing days of the National Assembly, on September 27, 1791, a decree of complete emancipation for all Jews, including the Ashkenazim, was finally passed. & & Adrien Duport, one of the National Assembly members declared: “The question of the political existence of the Jews has been postponed… I demand that… a decree pass [so] that the Jews in France enjoy the privileges of full citizens.” With general applause this decree was finally passed and thus began a new epoch in Jewish history.& & “The National Assembly, considering that the conditions requisite to be a French citizen, and to become an active citizen, are fixed by the constitution, and that every man who, being duly qualified, takes the civic oath, and engages to fulfill all the duties prescribed by the constitution, has a right to all the advantages it insures;… (The National Assembly). annuls all adjournments, restrictions, and exceptions, contained in the preceding decrees, affecting individuals of the Jewish persuasion, who shall take the civic oath, which shall be considered as a renunciation of all privileges granted in their favor.”& & Thus began the “official” welcoming of Jews into the realm of modern European history as full and equal citizens.&

Lacking plate LXIV in same volume. Richard Pococke was an English anthropologist and prelate who started his career as vicar-general of the dioceses Waterford and Lismore. His fascination with the Near East born out of his biblical studies led him to spend four years traveling through these lands. He arrived in Egypt in 1737 where he visited Thebes, Memphis, Dendera and Philae. Further travels took him to Jerusalem and Balbec. He also visited Cyprus, Crete, parts of Asia Minor and Greece. On his way back, in 1741, he explored the Mer de Glace in the valley near Chamonix. An account of this expedition appeared in 1743, and Pococke came to be regarded as the pioneer of Alpine travel. Pococke later resumed his ecclesiastical career, taking the position of Bishop of Ossory in 1756. Pococke's work on the Near East was an international success in the late eighteenth century and was translated into German, Dutch and French. This edition contains the German translation by D. Johann Friedrich Breyer, who taught logic and metaphysics at Erlangen, and the naturalist Johann Christian Daniel von Schreber. Text in German with Gothic script. Some age wear and staining on vellum. Wear to parts of edges on boards. Red title-label on vol. III smudged and stained due to damp exposure, slightly extending into vellum.

"Projet visionnaire comprenant deux mémoires de Martin de La Bastide, publiés après les démarches infructueuses de sa part auprès de la cour d'Espagne en 1780 pour la réalisation d'un canal à travers l'isthme de Panama ou de Darien. La Bastide plaide en faveur des énormes avantages que "l'Europe commerçante" pourrait tirer de l'ouverture d'un passage entre les deux mers, et fait un exposé méthodique du tracé géographique pour la jonction des mers, des moyens à employer pour y parvenir. Il analyse l'utilité pour le commerce des colonies espagnoles et pour le "commerce universel". A la fin du premier mémoire, La Bastide transcrit une note de Laborde dans laquelle ce dernier lui reconnaît la priorité sur ce projet.

It is therefore the wish of the Secretary of the Treasury that as soon as may be convenient after the receipt hereof you would transmit to this office the most exact return in your power of the Decked Vessels built in your District between the fourth of March 1790 and the same day in 1791 including the smallest sizes, The name, tonnage, form of rigging, whether ship, brig, &c, the form of the hull, whether double or single decked or deep waisted the owners name whether a citizen or foreigner and of what Nation, if pierced for guns and how many, whether the frame was of Pine or White Oak or live Oak and Cedar &c will be very useful points of information. The enclosed form will enable you to execute this business with greater facility and may be adhered to as far as may be possible. After the above year is stated in your return you will proceed to make a similar one as to the preceeding year that is from the fourth of March 1789 to the same day in 1790 but unless you can procure the requisite information of both years at the same time it will be well not to delay that first mentioned. The Secretary also wishes that you may forward from time to time as they may come into your hands any documents that have relation to the commerce, navigation, fisheries, manufactures or productions of your state either in the time of the Province or in that of the Commonwealth. These things frequently offer to Gentlemen in public stations and will be of the greatest importance to this Country, which till the last two years has had few national offices. The Legislature having been pleased to extend the privilege of franking to the Comptroller, the Treasurer, and the Auditor, sealed packets or letters similar to those which have heretofore been enclosed to the Secretary of the Treasury may be hereafter put into the Mails addressed to them. I am Sir, Very respectfully Your most obt. Servant Tench Coxe Assist. Secy¿
