        Rare Ship's Passport with Health Certificate for an American Ship Bound from Cadiz in Spain to Philadelphia.

      Cadiz 1791 - Cadiz, 7 February, 1791. Official Health Certificate from Spain's naval authorities, completed in manuscript, signed in the original by 3 parties, certifies clearance for disembarkment and trade following inspection of an American vessel. Folio. Single leaf laid paper, printed recto only, measuring approximately 23 x 42 cm. Features large steel cut engraving. Text is in Spanish. Indication of moisture, otherwise very good condition, retaining a strong impression. Fascinating eighteenth century document from the Spanish Naval Court, signed on 7 February 1791, by an administrator of the Board of Health in Cadiz, issuing clearance to an American vessel named The Pilgrim, Captained by a John Smith, who was on a return voyage to colonial Philadelphia not long after the War of Independence. Following customary inspection for bubonic plague and other deadly diseases, Smith and his crew of six are free to enter port and trade goods, under certain restrictions, before heading to Philadelphia. Interestingly, they are specifically prohibited from trading slaves, as mentioned in the text. Captain John Smith was a Private, a trooper for the Royal Horse Guard Blues, a Cavalry Regiment of the British Army, before becoming a sea merchant. In 1784 Smith married Penelope Pitt (1749-1827), Viscountess Ligonier, daughter of the diplomatist and courtier George Pitt (1720-1803) of Stratfield Saye, Hampshire. Little else is known of him, though he may be a descendant of John Smith who emigrated to America in 1720, whose ancestry leads to John Smith born in 1655, County Monaghan, Ireland. This family Smith settled primarily in the Brandywine Settlement and the Lancaster County of Philadelphia. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        CONGRESS OF THE UNITED STATES.BEGUN AND HELD AT THE CITY OF PHILADELPHIA, ON MONDAY THE SIXTH OF DECEMBER, ONE THOUSAND SEVEN HUNDRED AND NINETY. AN ACT TO AMEND "AN ACT, FOR ESTABLISHING THE TEMPORARY AND PERMANENT SEAT OF THE GOVERNMENT OF THE UNITED STATES." [caption title].

      [Philadelphia. ]. 1791 - Small folio broadside. Dbd. Near fine. In a cloth clamshell case, leather label. "Approved, March the third, 1791." This rare official printing of a law passed by the third session of the First Congress amends the law passed in the second session creating the District of Columbia. It allows the President to adjust the position of the District along the Potomac, and so set its final position. The law allowed Washington to move the district slightly downstream, so as to include Alexandria and "a convenient part of the Eastern Branch." This had the net effect of including more Virginia land, but the act specifies that all public buildings had to stay on the Maryland side. Signed in print by Speaker of the House Frederick Augustus Muhlenberg, John Adams, and George Washington. NAIP and OCLC together record four copies, at the American Antiquarian Society, the Massachusetts Historical Society, the New York Public Library, and the Library of Congress. EVANS 23869.

        Yamato Meisho Zue [trans.: A Guide to Notable Sites of the Area around Nara, the Ancient Capital].

      - 186 woodcut full-page illus. (of which 168 are double-page). Six vols. in seven. 8vo, orig. wrappers, orig. block printed title label on each upper cover (frayed), new stitching. Osaka: 1791. First edition of this richly illustrated travel guide to Nara, one in a series of similar guides to various parts of ancient Japan written by Akisato (fl. 1780-1814). He was the first to write detailed accounts of early Japan. He travelled with his artists throughout the country in order to accurately record the landmarks; his books were immediate best sellers. The illustrations are by Takehara Shunchôsai (d. 1800), one of the leading illustrators of the period, accompanied by Haiku poems with explanations in both Chinese and Japanese. This work describes the notable landmarks of Nara, the ancient capital of Japan before Kyoto and Tokyo. Not only are the most important temples, gardens, landscapes (in numerous and marvelous bird&#146;s eye views), and archeological remains portrayed in this finely illustrated set, scenes of daily life are also shown, including planting and harvesting crops, hunting and fishing, housekeeping, rituals and celebrations, bathing, etc., etc. Nara has always been famous for its deer population. There is a wonderful double-page illustration of men at a "café" throwing rice crackers to the nearby deer. This practice continues today. Shunchôsai draws landscapes in a realistic way. His illustrations are not only meticulously executed and aesthetically appealing but are also full of detailed and accurate information. This is an invaluable record of ancient Nara as many of the landmarks no longer exist. Very good state. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Common Sense fit l'objet d'une bombe à sa publication en Pennsylvanie en 1775 : citoyen anglais, Thomas Paine attaque de front le Cabinet royal britannique, et, à travers celui-ci, le principe monarchique. Il élabore dans cet ouvrage la théorie qui servira de fondement à la Révolution américaine. En avril 1776, Washington, commandant en chef de l'armée des Insurgents, souligne que "Common Sense opére dans les esprits un changement merveilleux". Affirmant d'autre part que "la cause des Américains est, dans une grande mesure, la cause de toute l'humanité", il est logique que la Révolution française se soit appropriée Thomas Paine, qui lui-même s'investira dans cette nouvelle aventure.

        L'AMITÉ AUX MÂNES DU CHER THOMAS MAUDUIT, COLONEL DU RÉGIMENT DU PORT-AU- PRINCE DANS L'ISLE DE ST. DOMINGUE.

      [Np, probably London. 1791]. - Aquatint portrait, 13 1/2 x 10 1/2 inches. Near fine. Thomas Mauduit du Plessis (1752-91), veteran officer of the American Revolution, was sent to Haiti in 1787 and put in command of a regiment in Port au Prince. He vehemently opposed the French Revolution and emancipation. Joining forces with the Governor, he raised a volunteer regiment of Royalists, dissolved the Assembly, and suppressed proclamations sent from Revolutionary Paris. His actions resulted in an uprising, and he was assassinated by his own men. This print shows him in his military dress from the waist up, wearing his Society of the Cincinnati Eagle and his Ordre de St. Louis; an inset below his portrait shows a slave bemoaning his new freedom. The print was undoubtedly printed in London or some other center where refugees of the French and St. Domingue revolutions congregated in the early 1790s.

        A Display of the United States of America

      New Haven - Stipple and line engraving with original hand-coloring. Circa 1791, State # 3. Aging of paper and scattered loss in image and along the bottom legend. Overall a good example. Sheet size: 22 x 18". Inventory#: p427pmat. Perhaps the most important and certainly the rarest of all Washington imprints. Doolittle's work celebrates George Washington's indispensable role in the formation and future success of our nation's federal government. A chain of state seals connected by the Great Seal of the United States encircles Washington, and corresponds to his belief that "our Assemblies in Politics are to be compared to the Wheels of a Clock.if all will do their parts the Machine works easy; but a failure in one disorders the whole, and without the large one.nothing can be done." Engraved in 1788, the plate was altered over the course of eight years with various bibliographic as well as updated versions of the Washington portrait. This third state example shows Washington in full military dress with the arms of Vermont added along with a blank shield on the lower left side. Doolittle played a key role during the American colonies' war for independence and the early years of the new nation. An enterprising printer and engraver in New Haven, Connecticut, he exploited the commercial potential of George Washington's likeness following the 1788 election campaign--the country's first--to create one of the earliest American presidential political prints. Of exceptional size, this work represents a significant achievement in American popular printmaking and marked George Washington's passage from military command to civilian rule. 0

        Den öma modren.

      [ENGLISH: Original engraving by Per Floding (1731-1791) after J. Blanchard (1600-1638). Please enquire for a description in English.] - Ny ram, förgylld med bladguld. Syrafri passepartout. Kopparstick och etsning. Signerad och daterad i plåten under bilden: "Peint à Paris par J. Blanchard 1637 / Gravé à Stockholm par P. Floding 1766". Med graverad dedikation till ständerna. 34,6 × 38 cm. (Bladet 37 × 43,3 cm.) Litteratur: E. & C. Hultmark & C. D. Moselius, Svenska kopparstickare och etsare 1500-1944 (1944), s. 103. | C. U. Palm, "Per Gustaf Floding och hans konstnärskap", Meddelanden från Föreningen för grafisk konst, 3 (1896), kat. nr 13, état 3. Floding "ägnade allt sitt livliga ingenium åt att försöka frampressa större bidrag från ständerna och uppvaktade flitigt sina gynnare med dedicerade blad" (Sven Sandström i Svenskt Konstnärslexikon, 2 (1953), s. 207). Vid sin hemkomst till Stockholm från Paris 1764 kunde han inte finna någon lämplig målning att återge i gravyr, och valde därför som förlaga ett konstverk han medfört från Frankrike. Den öma modren är ett av Flodings bästa arbeten efter hemkomsten, daterat samma år som han gick segrande ur den bittra striden mot Jacob Gillberg om ledningen för en nyinrättad gravyrskola. Originalplåten finns i Nationalmuseum och tillhörde tidigare Chr. Hammers samling.

      London: Printed for John Stockdale, 1791. - xxiv,323,[1]pp., plus nine folding maps, two folding views, and a folding plate. Lacks the half title. Quarto. Modern three-quarter speckled calf and marbled boards, spine richly gilt, gilt morocco label. Offsetting from the maps, some slight tanning, but a handsome, very good copy. First English edition, following the French edition of the previous year. Writing during a period of intense international rivalry over discoveries in the Pacific, Fleurieu (a French politician and scientist) promotes the discoveries of Bougainville and Jean de Surville at the expense of British claims, though he does acknowledge some of Captain Cook's discoveries. To bolster his claims for the French, Fleurieu uses unpublished manuscripts, as well as the printed accounts of several Spanish and British navigators. An appendix prints Buache's "Extract from a memoir concerning the existence and situation of Solomon's Islands." The twelve folding maps and plates relate to New Guinea and the Solomon Islands. "The maps are interesting, since they were based both on actual discoveries and on Fleurieu's theories. When d'Entrecasteaux returned from his fruitless search for La Perouse, he confirmed that Fleurieu's theories appeared to be generally correct" - Hill. HILL 611. BEDDIE 1302. FERGUSON 105.

      1791 - Treat, Malachi, (d. 1793). Autograph letter signed to an unidentified recipient, dated New York, Feb. 16th, 1791. 2pp. 313 x 202 mm. Tears along folds repaired, bottom margin chipped affecting the last line of the first page, moderate toning. Typed transcript accompanies. Treat served as physician-general in the Northern Division of the Continental Army during the Revolutionary War (a letter from General Washington to Treat, dated January 19, 1779, is on file at the University of Virginia Library's Electronic Text Center). After the war he served as New York City's health officer, and was involved in setting up the New York Hospital (the second hospital in the U. S.) in the early 1790s. He died in the yellow fever epidemic of 1793. His letter is full of sage advice to an acquaintance who was apparently studying the law:. . . it becomes you to be very oeconomical, for yr Expenses already have exceeded yr Proportion of the Estate. Spend no money but what is absolutely necessary, frequent no Taverns, nor play at any Game of Hazard by which yr Mind may get debauched, or detach from yr present Pursuit-prosecute yr Studies with diligence, and Love. . . .Packard, Hist.

Quarto, 4 pp., woodblock ornament and drop title; fine and uncut, preserved in recent marbled wrappers. &#39;Publish what we have&#39;. Very scarce indeed: the French National Assembly decree calling for the publication of all of accounts and charts of the La Pérouse expedition. The edict makes special reference to his Australian landing and copious correspondence relayed to France throughout the voyage (&#39;envoyées par M. la Peyrouse, de la partie de son voyage jusqu&#39;à Botanibay…&#39;). Three printings of this decree are known to us; issued in Paris, Grenoble and Tours respectively. This Tours printing has a manuscript certification dated 24 June 1791 for the district of Tours. In February of 1791 the National Assembly issued its famous edict initiating the search for the lost explorer. Issued within months, this document is clearly a companion to the February edict. Here the government affirms the publication of the official account of La Pérouse&#39;s voyage. A wealth of material was available because of La Pérouse&#39;s habit of regularly forwarding the latest information by any means available (famously, his last report was forwarded by Governor Philip from Port Jackson). The publication announced here would be six years in the making, first appearing in 1797 as {i Voyage de la Pérouse autour du Monde}, and come to be regarded as one of the greatest narratives of maritime exploration ever published. This decree itself is printed at the start of the official voyage account. Of the three imprints, that published in Paris appears to be the most common. Two copies are recorded in Australian libraries (State Library of New South Wales and the National Library) and it is recorded by several bibliographers (Allen&#39;s Check List p. 10; McLaren 134; Ferguson 107). The Paris imprint also appears in the checklist titled {i Centenaire de la mort de La Pérouse} (Paris, 1888; number 48). However, the Grenoble and Tours imprints are considerably scarcer, and have escaped notice by the aforementioned bibliographers.

Hogg, London 1791 - Please note that this is a heavy item and will require extra postage.; Brown leather boards; a little scuffed and worn, but generally smooth; gilt decoration and titling still quite bright; light wear to lower part of spine, but binding firmly intact. Marbled boards and pastedowns. Owner's name on f.e.p., in lovely copperplate, dd June 16th, 1792. The book is undated, but the same hand has inked 1791 just below the publisher's name on the title page. The title on the spine says "Dryden's Virgil", but he is in fact merely one of the sources "carefully consulted and attended to" in Melmoth's preparation of the volume - among the others were Warton, Pitt, Spence, Warburton, etc., etc. Engraved frontis. + plates; fold-out map of the Roman world at front. Incidentally, the Directions to the Book-Binder were not followed too closely, as few of the plates were inserted as directed: some earlier hand (possibly the original owner) has carefully noted where each plate actually is, and inked in corrections. Lastly, and fascinatingly, bound in at the rear are two separate sets of closely handwritten quarto pages (about 40 in toto), once again in the most beautiful copperplate, presumably of commentary / notes on the text. ; 4to (9" x 11"); 497 + ads + list of sbscibers. pages [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        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.).

      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]
