A handsomely bound set of the standard edition of the Chronicles of Spanish kings started by Florian de Ocampo (c.1499–c.1558) and Ambrosio de Morales (1513–1591). The first two volumes contain Ocampo's chronicle. Volumes 9 and 10 are entitled "Las antigüedades de las ciudades de España que van nombradas en la Corónica", continuing the Corónica to the death of Alonso VII by P. de Sandoval's Historia de los reyes de Castilla y de Leon. A set with an Anglo-Spanish interesting provenance: the Zuluetas were an old Basque family ennobled as counts of Torre Díaz in the 19th century, owners of a private bank in London. Rafael Merry del Val (1831–1917), Marquis of Merry del Val, was secretary to the Spanish legation in London, a monarchist supporter of Alfonso XII. His eldest son Alfonso, marquess of Merry del Val (b.1864), was Spanish ambassador to the United Kingdom between 1913 and 1931. His younger brother, also Rafael (1865–1930), was born at the Spanish Embassy in London and became a Roman Catholic cardinal; he served as secretary to the conclave of 1903 that elected Pope Pius X and was nominated for canonization in 1953.

        Alexandros Mavrokordatos. "Alexandros Mavrokordatos.President of the Greek Government

      Philhellenic: London "now in course of Publication...by A Friedal, 34, Surrey Street, Strand and Sold by the principal Book & Printsellers in Town & Country." . Black & white lithograph portrait of Alexandros Mavrokordatos from the fourth edtion of Friedals "Series of Greek Portraits (4th part)" verso blank. Printed on India paper, mounted. Printed signature in Greek Full length portrait of Mavrocordato, standing in his office; the first time this image was published. Text below in English & French The first time this image was published Alexandros Mavrokordatos ( 1791- 1865, ) He was a member of the Filiki Eteria and was among the Phanariot Greeks who hastened to the Morea on the outbreak of the War of Independence in 1821. He was active in endeavouring to establish a regular government, and in January, 1822 he was elected by the First National Assembly at Epidaurus as the "President of the Executive". He commanded the advance of the Greeks into western Central Greece the same year, and suffered a serious defeat at Peta on July 16, but retrieved this disaster somewhat by his successful resistance to the First Siege of Missolonghi (Nov. 1822 to Jan. 1823). His English sympathies brought him, in the subsequent strife of factions, into opposition to the "Russian" party headed by Demetrius Ypsilanti and Kolokotronis; and though he held the portfolio of foreign affairs for a short while under the presidency of Petrobey (Petros Mavromichalis), he was compelled to withdraw from affairs until February 1825, when he again became a Secretary of State. The landing of Ibrahim Pasha followed, and Mavrocordatos again joined the army, barely escaping capture in the disaster at Sphacteria, on May 9, 1825, by swimming to Navarino. After the fall of Missolonghi (April 22, 1826) he went into retirement, until President John Capodistria made him a member of the committee for the administration of war material, a position he resigned in 1828. After Kapodistria's murder (October 9, 1831) and the resignation of his brother and successor, Augustinos Kapodistrias (April 13, 1832), Mavrocordatos became Minister of Finance. He was Vice-President of the National Assembly at Argos (July, 1832), and was appointed by King Otto as his Minister of Finance, and in 1833 Premier. Spotted particularly to India paper; short tear repaired to lower blank margin. Adam [de] Friedal, there is much confusion about Friedal's origins, He is supposed to be a Danish Phihellene and apparently passed himself off as a Baron. St Clair tells us that Friedal carried a lithographic press on his back whilst in Greece where he seems to have been between 1821-24.. He was at Missolonghi for a while with Lord Byron and married the sister of one of Byron's artificers, John Hodges. Byron wrote a letter introducing Friedal to the notice of the London Greek Commitee. Friedal returned and settled in London and produced his first portrait of Mavrocordato dated September 1824. "The Greeks. Twenty-four Portraits (In Four Parts Of Six Portraits Each,) of the Principal Leaders and Personages Who Have Made Themseves Most Conspicuous in the Greek Revolution.." 1st edition 1824. thereafter there are a number of editions, with differences to the portraits. The portraits in the 1st Edition, probably after Friedal's original drawings are fairly primitive, with each new edition they became more refined. A second edition of the first 2 parts was issued in 1826. Some of these plates are marked 'second edition', others merely have anew date on the plate surface. In most cases a completely new portrait replaces that of the previous ediion; parts 3 & 4 are unchanged. In 1827 two editions appeared with the imprint "London and Paris, 1827", some on India paper. one in which the portraits had no, or a very simple background, the other with full complex backgrounds. A French edition appeared the same year. In 1828-9 Dean & Munday brought out another series of Friedal plates, some but not all marked 'fourth edition', their most distinguishing feature being that they are full length. They re- issued a number of plates in 1830, marked fifth and sixth edition. There exist wrappers for a 'sixth edition 'appearing in 1832. [Navari].

        The History of the American Revolution

      London: J. Johnson and J. Stockdale,, 1791. 2 volumes, octavo (204 × 124 mm). Contemporary calf, red morocco lettering- and black morocco numbering-pieces, flat spine, compartments gilt with an urn to the first, floral motifs to the fourth and sixth, and olive branch tool to the fifth, attractive "paraph" tools as corner-pieces to all, as also to the numbering-piece, edges stained yellow. Errata leaf bound in at the rear of each volume. Minor rubbing at the extremities, upper joint of Volume I just started toward the head, tan-burn from the turn-ins to the prelims, foxing to the endpapers and fore-edge, some encroachment to the margins, but overall a very good set. First UK edition, two years after the Philadelphia-published American first, but in fact from American sheets with a cancel title, part of the original title still visible in Volume II of this set. A very pretty set of "almost the first and very probably the most accomplished of the many histories of the American Revolution and making of the Federal Constitution" (O'Brien). The present work and Ramsay's History of the Revolution in South Carolina were the first works to be copyrighted by the authority of the United States government. As no copyright law had yet been enacted, this was done by a special act of Congress on 20 April 1789. Ramsay studied medicine at the College of Pennsylvania, and practised for a year in Maryland before settling in Charleston: "He bore a letter from his preceptor and friend, Dr. Benjamin Rush, who declared that he was 'far superior to any person we ever graduated at our college'" (DAB). He was successful in practice, but his energies were soon absorbed in politics, from 1776 to the end of the War he represented Charleston in the legislature; in 1781 he was returned to the House of Representatives; during most of 1782 and 1785 he was a delegate to the Continental Congress; from 1784-90 he served in the state House of Representatives; and in 1792, 1794 and 1796 he was elected to the state Senate. In his preface he explains that the materials for his history "were collected in the year 1782, 1783, 1785, and 1786; in which years, as a member of Congress, I had access to all the official papers of the United States. Every letter written to Congress by General Washington, from the day he took the command of the American Army till he resigned it, was carefully perused, and it's [sic] contents noted. The same was done with the letters of other general officers, ministers of Congress, and others in public stations." Historiographically, Peter C. Messer considers Ramsay's history to reflect "the combination of anxiety and optimism that defined nationalistic sentiments in the 1780s," while Karen O'Brien identifies it as "almost the first and very probably the most accomplished of the many histories of the American Revolution and making of the Federal Constitution published in the immediate aftermath of those events … the last of the European Enlightenment histories rather than the first of the American historical epics". A very pretty set in an unrestored contemporary binding.

        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,

        The Seige [sic] of Blenheim or the new system of Gunning discoverd

      [London], Pubd March 5th 1791, by H. Humphrey, No. 18 Old Bond Street. 1791. Broadside engraving, 360 x 260 mms., engraved on one side only, uncoloured, and in very good condition. The Sitter is Gertrude Russell (née Leveson-Gower), Duchess of Bedford, with Elizabeth Gunning, John Gunning, and Susannah Gunning (née Minifie). Miss Gunning sits astride a cannon directed against the facade of Blenheim. Her mother (right) fires the cannon by putting her pen to the touch-hole. Elizabeth Gunning (1769 - 1823) moved to London with her parents, John Gunning (1742 - 1797) and Susannah Gunning née Minfie (1739/40 - 1800), when she was said to be engaged to be engaged to her cousin the Marquess of Lorne, heir to the Duke of Argyll. Later speculation liked her to a grander destiny, to be the wife of the Marquess of Blandford, heir to the Duke of Marlborough. Letters said to be from Blandford proved to be forgeries, and scandal ensued (so what else is new?), and the engraving caricatures the alleged attempts of her family to force a marriage between Blandford and Elizabeth. She married a Major Plunkett in 1803.

Das Hauptwerk in der maßgeblichen deutschen Ausgabe, das größten Einfluß auf die deutsche Geburtshilfe ausübte. - Waller 773; vgl. Garrison/Morton 6255 (EA 1781). - "Als eine besondere Glanzzeit in der Geschichte des französischen Hebammenwesens ist die Periode zu bezeichnen, in welcher Ende des 18. und Anfang des 19. Jahrhunderts Jean Louis Baudelocque sich dem Hebammenunterricht in der Pariser Maternité widmete, unterstützt von der ausgezeichneten Oberhebamme Mme Lachapelle... Gross sind seine Verdienste um die Beckenmessung. Der Zange widmet er ein eingehendes Studium namentlich auch bezüglich der Nachteile der Kompression des Kopfes. Die Wendung auf den Kopf erwähnt er zwar bei einigen Arten der Schieflage, zieht aber in allen Fällen die Wendung auf die Füsse vor. Baudelocque war einer der eifrigsten Gegner des Schamfugenschnitts, ebenso hat er seine Autorität der künstlichen Frühgeburt für lange Zeit den Eintritt in Frankreich verwehrt. Er hat einen Einfluss von ähnlicher Intensität und Ausdehnung auf die Geburtshilfe - nicht nur auf die französische - ausgeübt, wie sein älterer Landsmann André Levret" (Fasbender 245ff). - Stempel Titel verso.

        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'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. .

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. . Catalogs: literature.

        Mapa de la Provincia y Archipielago de Chiloe en el Reyno de Chile Obispado de la Concepcion

      The first large-scale map of Chiloe. 1791. Madrid. Benito Cano. Very good condition, save for minor damp stain in upper left, usually found severely folded, this copy in remarkable impression and printed on thick paper, never bound. 563 mm x 408 mm. 3,800 u$sAn extremely rare Chilian Island of Chiloe and a magnificent copy; it appears in Gonzalez de Agueros? "Descripcion Historial de la Provincia y Archipielago de Chiloe en el reyno de Chile, y Obispado de la Concepcion". The Chiloe Archipelago is a large group of islands, which features the large island of Chiloe, located off the coast of Chile in the Pacific. The map is very detailed, we can only assume it was compiled from the most updated available geographical information; it is dramatically engraved and features a compass rose and a title cartouche. This copy appeared in a late 18th century composite atlas by Tomas Lopez, which accounts for the exceptional condition it is found in.
