        VINDICIÆ GALLICÆ: DEFENCE OF THE FRENCH REVOLUTION AND ITS ENGLISH ADMIRERS AGAINST THE ACCUSATIONS OF THE RIGHT HON. EDMUND BURKE

      London: Printed for G. G. J. and J. Robinson, 1791. Third Edition, with additions . Hardcover. 210 x 133 mm (8 1/4 x 5 1/4"). 2 p.l., xiii, [2], 16-*205, [1], 203-342 [i.e., 378] pp. (p. 378 misnumbered "342"). Third Edition, with additions. Excellent contemporary speckled half calf over marbled boards, flat spine pleasingly gilt in compartments with urn and garland centerpiece and floral spray cornerpieces, red morocco label. Front pastedown with armorial bookplate of Sir Henry Paston-Bedingfeld, Bart. ESTC T-58807. Paper on the covers a bit faded as well as chafed and abraded, isolated mild foxing, one page with small marginal stain, but AN ESPECIALLY FINE COPY, the text unusually clean, fresh, and bright, and in a remarkably well-preserved contemporary binding. This is a virtually unused copy, in an inexpensive period binding, of an important rebuttal to Edmond Burke's "Reflections on the Revolution in France." Burke feared revolution within Britain and railed against any support whatsoever for the cause of the French rebels. In the present measured response, Mackintosh, a whig and a member of the Holland House circle, skillfully shows the weakness of Burke's analysis and evidence, at the same time arguing for reforms in Britain that would preclude the need for any rebellion. While a lifelong proponent of democratic reform, Mackintosh was understandably horrified by the excesses of the Reign of Terror and was reconciled to Burke before the latter's death.

        COPIE DE LA LETTRE ÉCRITE PAR MM. LES COMMISSAIRES DU ROI, DESTINÉ A PASSER A SAINT-DOMINGUE, A M. THEVENARD, MINISTRE DE LA MARINE, DATÉE DE PARIS LE 26 JUILLET 1791 [caption title]

      [N.p., but Paris July 26, 1791].. 2pp. plus integral blank. Quarto, on a folded folio sheet. Lightly dampstained in margins. Some light wear. Good. The text of a letter sent by the Commissaires Conciliateurs a Saint Domingue to M. Thevenard, Minister of the Marine, and their letter to the president of the National Assembly transmitting that letter. The Commissaires to Saint Domingue address the issue of the impending French Consitution and its impact on their mission to the colony. With the rise of the French Revolution came colonial collapse and eventual revolution in the colony of Saint Domingue. The French Revolutionary Government tried to maintain a hold on the colony, made difficult by distance. Mere weeks after this letter was written, the slave revolt in Saint Domingue left thousands of white French colonists dead and the island in turmoil. The signatories to the letter (signed in type) are Guillot, d'Herisson, and Delahuproye.

The Life of Johnson was written on a scale practically unknown to biographers before Boswell. It is a full-length portrait with all the blotches and pimples revealed. . . . Wherever English is spoken, it has become a veritable sacred book and has pervaded English life and thought in the same way that the Bible, Shakespeare and Bunyan have done. [Boswell] is a dramatic and descriptive artist of the first order? (Seccombe, The Age of Johnson). Grolier English 100, p. 130. Courtney & Smith, Bibl. Samuel Johnson, pp. 172-73. Pottle 79.

        The Life of Samuel Johnson, LL.D. Comprehending an Account of his Studies and Numerous Works, In Chronological Order;

      London: Printed by Henry Baldwin, for Charles Dilly,, 1791. A Series of his Epistolary Correspondence and Conversations with Many Eminent Persons; and Various Original Pieces of His Composition, Never Before Published. The Whole Exhibiting a View of Literature and Literary Men in Great-Britain, for Near Half a Century, During Which He Flourished. In Two Volumes. 2 volumes, quarto (268 × 205 mm). Contemporary tan calf, red and black morocco labels, gilt rules either side of low raised bands. Engraved frontispiece, engraved round-robin, text printed on pale blue stock. Contemporary ownership inscriptions of Charles Kerr of Abbotrule written longitudinally in the inner margin of the first leaf of text in each volume; bookplates of William Binns Cowper. Light rubbing to spines, rear joint just started at head of vol. II, the others intact, a very handsome copy. First edition, first state, 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 uncorrected first state, reading "gve". Some copies were corrected in the press to "give", and 1,750 copies in either state were available on publication day, 16 May 1791 (800 were sold in the first two weeks). The volumes have the rather unusual contemporary ownership inscriptions of Charles Kerr of Abbotrule (1767–1821), Writer to the Signet; he was apprenticed to Walter Scott's father; after misadventures he succeeded to his estate in 1791, the year of publication.

        VERSUCHE UNTERHALTUNGEN UND BELUSTIGUNGEN AUS DER NATÜRLICHEN MAGIE

      Leipzig und Jena: bei Adam Gottlieb Schneider, 1791. FIRST EDITION . Hardcover. 197 x 127 mm (7 3/4 x 5"). 9 p.l., 358. FIRST EDITION. Attractive contemporary half calf over pink paper boards, raised bands, spine densely gilt in compartments with tulip centerpiece, fleuron sidepieces, and scrolling floral cornerpieces, two tan morocco labels, marbled pastedowns. With hand-colored title page vignette and 11 FINE ENGRAVED FOLDING PLATES, ALL COLORED BY HAND. Insignificant fading to covers, minor foxing confined to short portions of the text, other trivial imperfections, but AN OUTSTANDING COPY, the binding with virtually no wear, the text unusually clean and fresh, and the intriguing colored plates in a remarkable state of preservation. If there had been infomercials in 1800, the Nuremberg polymath Johann Gütle (1747-1827) would have been actively involved in this kind of promotion. Self taught in physics and mathematics, Gütle was an active entrepreneur who fabricated and sold everything from etched glass to cleaning and beautifying products (among them hair restorer and coloring) to lightning rods--including the first one in his home town. He wrote more than two dozen books dealing with, among other things, mechanics, electricity, surveying, and magic. He ran an active distribution center for his books and products, and he was a travelling showman whose efforts to succeed in retailing had a component of entertainment--a significant fraction of his writings dealing with the diverting amusement of magic tricks. Despite evidence that he could justifiably be labeled a huckster, he was also a talented and versatile handworker mentioned by contemporaries as an important artisan and author (the poet Jean Paul, for example, alludes, with pleasure, to the use of his hair dye), and he made serious efforts to contribute to the scientific betterment of daily life. Chief among his accomplishments was the construction of the original Nuremberg lightning rod, which brought him considerable acclaim. At the same time, Gütle was decried in Heilbronn as a fraud for his unsuccessful medical applications of electricity, which had to have been viewed at the time as macabre. The present work contains sections on "Electrical Arts," "Mechanical Arts," and "Colorful Magic," with the plates at the end of the book depicting the various devices and experiments explained in the text (these plates, in addition to being very detailed and attractively colored, are in almost unbelievably fine condition for a work of this sort). All of Gütle's early publication are quite rare, including the present one: OCLC locates only a dozen copies of our book, and ABPC records just one copy at auction since 1975.
