        Autograph letter signed 2pp., to unnamed recipient.

      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. Med. U.S., pp. 144, 237, 559. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Loi relative à M. de la Peyrouse, & à l'impression des Cartes par lui envoyées, donnée à Paris, le 4 Mai 1791 [caption-title]

      Tours: Auguste Vauquer, Imprimeur du Département d'Indre & Loire, 1791. Quarto, 4 pp., woodblock ornament and drop title; fine and uncut, preserved in recent marbled wrappers. 'Publish what we have'. 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 ('envoyées par M. la Peyrouse, de la partie de son voyage jusqu'à Botanibay…'). 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's voyage. A wealth of material was available because of La Pérouse'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'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.

      Alex. 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.).

        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]

        The Life of Samuel Johnson, Comprehending an Account of His Studies and Numerous Works, in Chronological Order The Whole Exhibiting a View of Literature and Literary Men in Great Britain for Near a Century During Which He Flourished. In Two Volumes.

      London: by Henry Baldwin for Charles Dilly, 1791 - 2 volumes, quarto (300 × 220 mm). Old marbled boards, rebacked and recornered to style in calf, smooth spines with red morocco labels, gilt rolls and date at foot, wavy-line rolls in blind, marbled edges. Sides rubbed; one leaf (sig. 3I3, vol. 1) shorter and probably supplied from another copy and with short tear in lower margin repaired; quire 4B, vol. 2, with old repairs to close tears without loss at upper inner corner; overall, a good copy. Portrait frontispiece engraved by James Heath after Sir Joshua Reynolds, 2 engraved facsimile plates by H. Shepherd. First edition of the most famous biography in any language. The immense task of compiling the thousands of notes Boswell had recorded on "the great man's talk, habits and opinions" was begun after Johnson's death in 1784. Made up of trifling incidents as well as the significant events in Johnson's life, the work remains a masterpiece of portraiture. "Homer is not more decidedly the first of heroic poets, Shakespeare is not more decidedly the first of dramatists, Demosthenes is not more decidedly the first of orators, than Boswell is the first of biographers" (Macaulay). Boswell's reputation was further enhanced by the discovery in the early part of the 20th century of the Boswell Papers, which were stored in the Malahide Castle of Ireland for generations. What resulted from this discovery was the revelation of Boswell as an extraordinary personality in his own right; a far more complex, eccentric genius than the mere recorder of Johnson's conversations. This copy has p. 135, vol. 1, in the corrected state, reading "give". This is not an issue point for the whole book; some copies read "gve", but the correction was made in the press, and 1,750 copies with either state were available on publication day, 16 May 1791 (800 were sold in the first two weeks).

A monument to biography, reprinted several times. Boswell was already a prolific author by the time of publication, but "The Life" propelled him to even higher levels of recognition.

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.

        vie privée du Marechal de Richelieu, contenant ses amours et ses intrigues, et tout ce qui a rapport aux divers rôles qu'à joués cet homme célèbre pendant plus de quatre-vingt ans.

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.
