John Sinclair
Edinburgh: William Ceech, 1791. The Statistical Account of Scotland Drawn up from the communications of the Ministers of the Different Parishes By Sir John Sinclair 1791 The first (Old) 21 Volumes, Original leather bound. The First (Old) Statistical Account of Scotland[edit] Sir John Sinclair of Ulbster had studied German state surveys and wished to use what he called for the first time these "statistical" methods to measure the quantum of happiness that existed in the nation and find ways of improving this. In this he was a remarkable example of Enlightenmentidealism at work. He stressed the empirical ideal of that age by lauding its anxious attention to the facts and he set about completing the work left unachieved by the previous attempt mentioned above. The results are crucial to an understanding of Scotland on the eve of both the Industrial Revolution and the French Revolution. In 1790, Sir John sent structured questionnaires to over 900 parish ministers, covering the whole country. This contained 160 questions in 4 sections, namely Geography and topography Population Agricultural and Industrial production Miscellaneous questions There were follow up questions in Appendices - six new questions in 1790 and four more in 1791. The general response was excellent, though the length and quality of submissions varied greatly, as can be seen by comparing those for two East Lothian parishes: Whittingehame (19 pages with detailed tables) and Stenton (2 pages of minimal information). Since the survey was not complete, Sir John sent out Statistical Missionaries in 1796 . The proje … [Click Below for Full Description]

Published by Isaac Collins
Isaac Collins, 1791. The first Bible printed in New Jersey and the second quarto King James Bible printed in America. In 1791 Isaac Collins, a Quaker from Trenton, printed this first Bible of New Jersey (Hills 31), a large quarto. Remarkably, he obtained the support not only of Quakers, but Presbyterian, Episcopal, and Baptist bodies, in his state. Dr. John Witherspoon, signer of the Declaration of Independence, president of the College of New Jersey (now Princeton) and a leader of the Presbyterian Church, supervised the work and wrote the introduction. Collins' family members and others meticulously proofread this Bible, and were paid for any printing errors found. Because of its very accurate text, Collins' Bible was a standard for later Bible printers. Both Isaiah Thomas and Isaac Collins were particularly careful to ensure the accuracy and purity of the text, by getting the best possible Bibles from England and by hiring ministers as proof readers (Hills 4). By 1791, he had produced 5,000 copies. Due to its fairly large size and clear type, unlike all the small coat-pocket American Bibles and New Testaments that had come before it, the 1791 Isaac Collins Bible became known as the first "Family Bible" printed in America. Original sheepskin covers have age deterioration but still attached. Small closed tears an foxing to a few pages. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Paine, Thomas
Paris, Chez F. Buisson, 1791. First French edition of Thomas Paine's classic statement of faith in democracy and egalitarianism. Octavo, bound in contemporary one quarter calf over marbled boards. In very good condition. From the library of Virginia bibliophile and historian Christopher Clark Geest with his bookplate to the pastedown. Rare and desirable. "One of the most remarkable political writers of the modern world Thomas Paine wrote both parts of Rights of Man with the United States in mind Celebrating America and the extension of the struggle for liberty, equality and democracy to France Rights of Man became a phenomenal success in America" (Kaye, 4, 97-9). Paine finished the first part of Rights of Man on his 54th birthday, January 29, 1791, and the following day handed the manuscript to Johnson, a London publisher "who set about printing it in time for the opening of Parliament and Washington s birthday on February 22." Fearing governmental reprisals, Johnson halted its release compelling Paine to find another London publisher J.S. Jordan. Paine entrusted friends to supervise the publication and "packed his trunk for Paris, where he planned to arrange a French translation." The London edition of Rights of Man finally saw publication on March 13, 1791 and "made Paine the most controversial public figure of the day" (Keane, 304-6). Paine, then in France, had "brought with him from London a copy of the [original sheets] for translation into French" (Woodward, 199).

Edited by Georg Nielsen, Frederik Adam Müller and others. This substantial work was printed in antiqua by the Danish printer Nicolaus Møller. The large vignettes of the title page and of the introduction [Indledning] page of the first volume were engraved (and possibly drawn) by F.L. Bradt. The title page, in neo-classic style, and the part-title pages were engraved by G. Fehrenholtz. Elephant folio. 17 x 12 inches (424 x 289 mm).

First published in 1789, this is the second edition. Howes notes that Anburey served with Burgoyne in the American Revolution, but this account of his travels, written as a series of letters, and describing the disasterous campaign and his captivity by the Americans, is largely plagiarized from Burnaby, Smyth, and other writers.

Malta, 29. I, 1791. 1 S. Qu.-8vo. Dankesschreiben für Neujahrswünsche an einen Herrn O'Hara, eventuell Anthony O'Hara, russischer Botschafter beim Malteserorden: "C'est toujours avec un vrai plaisir que je reçois, Monsieur, les temoignages de votre souvenir et de votre attachement. J'en ai vu un nouveau gage dans les souhaits heureux que vous m'avez adressés au renouvellement de l'année, qui m'a été infiniment agréable. Croyez que de mon côté je fais les v½ux les plus sincères pour l'accomplissement de vos désirs, et que les miens seront toujours de vous renouveller , autant qu'il dépendra de moi, les preuves de la parfaite estime avec laquelle je suis, Monsieur, votre affectionné serviteur [...]". - Emmanuel de Rohan-Polduc war von 1775 bis zu seinem Tod der 70. Großmeister des Malteserordens. Wegen der französischen Revolution geriet der Orden ab 1789 in finanzielle Schwierigkeiten und politische Bedrängnis. Nur zwei Jahre nach seinem Tod wurde Malta kampflos von französischen Truppen besetzt und die Ordensritter mussten die Insel verlassen.

Rastrelli, Modesto
Firenze: Grazioli, 1791. Small 4to. 175 x 125 mm (7 x 4 ¾ inches). 99 pp. Illustrated with a hand colored engraving designed by Giuseppe Piattoli and engraved by Vascellini. Later decorated paste paper boards. Very good copy. Rare first edition. Very attractive copy of Rastrelli's poem that satirizes a century's old festival originally organized in Florence by Cosimo I after the restitution of his power in 1537. The poem, followed by historical notes on Cosimo's victory, focuses on the losers in that battle, who were made to ride through the city on the backs of donkeys, and receive the wrath of the population and the humiliation that comes with defeat. The engraving is designed by the noted Florentine painter, Giuseppe Piattoli and is characteristic of his playful manner. This copy from the library of Giannalisa Feltrinelli and like so many Florentine illustrated books is very rare. OCLC lists only one copy in London, NUC adds copies at NYPL, Harvard, and Newberry. In addition to the first edition, Rastrelli's Il Palio proved very successful, with later editions printed in 1824, 1825, and 1831, all of which are rare.

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.

The 'Sanction' Leaf is a separate imprint, recorded as such by Bristol and by Shipton & Mooney. It is rare, with NAIP recording a holding only at the Huntington Library. AAS does not own it.

Thus this work, "a code of Laws for the government of the Grand Lodge, and all the Lodges on its dependancy," as well as "an Epitome of ancient history" recounting the story of Freemasonry. How the book came to be written is recounted in IV Gould's Library of Freemasonry, pages 363- 364 [1906].Evans 23727 [main entry].

Robert Jackson
Printed for J. Murray, 1791. Full Leather. First Edition. An attractive First Edition copy. Robert Jackson was a British army physician in the late 18th century. This work advocated the use of cold affusion, or the application of cold water, for British soldiers stricken by the tropical fevers of Jamaica. The book also has the historical importance of directly aiding him in securing an appointment as surgeon to the 3rd regiment, or Buffs, when war broke out in 1793. As he was not connected with the College of Physicians of London, he was not formally eligible for the office of army physician, only securing it due to the intervention of the Duke of York. "This personal incident was the beginning of Jackson's resolute opposition to the monopoly of the College of Physicians and to the corrupt administration of the old army medical board, which ended in a new regime in 1810, and in an open career from the lowest to the highest ranks of the army medical service" (DNB X, 542). Jackson is now known as an important military reformer and historical authority on fevers, this work being an important foundation stone for both aspects of his life's work. Contemporary calf binding, with a brown morocco label and gilt rules. Rules rolled in gilt on the edges. Minor loss to the top of the spine, with the beginnings of separation to the top of the front joint. Spots and soiling to the front board. Lacking front and rear endpapers.

Erasmus Darwin
1791. Very Good - half calf leather binding, marbled endpapers, no markings, toning on some pages, cover corners are bumped, binding is strong. See pics. The Botanic Garden by Erasmus Darwin 1791, Printed for J. Johnson, London First Edition of Part I; third edition of Part II, containing two more plates than the first edition of 1789. Darwin's first major literary work, and the chief source of his fame during his lifetime. "The Botanic Garden, an annotated scientific poem in Augustan couplets, appeared in two parts, of which the second, The Loves of the Plants (1789), was published before the first, The Economy of Vegetation (1791). Darwin decided to publish the second part of the work first because it was better suited 'to entertain and charm.' The first part of the work is more ambitious than the second, covering all natural philosophy, and embodying many of the researches and inventions of Wedgwood, Watt, Boulton, and others. The design of the totality was, Darwin wrote, 'To enlist Imagination under the banner of Science . . . to induce the ingenious to cultivate the knowledge of botany . . . and recommending to their attention the immortal works of the celebrated Swedish naturalist--Linnaeus'" (Dictionary of Scientific Biography). The Botanic Garden is also important for the five plates in Vol. I engraved by William Blake: four engravings of the Portland vase, and the "Fertilization of Egypt," after a design by Fuseli.

I, 2 volumes, 4to, pp. xii, [16], 516; [2], 588; engraved portrait frontispiece by Heath after Joshua Reynolds, and with the Round Robin plate, and the plate showing facsimile signatures of Johnson; nice copy in contemporary full calf neatly and pleasingly rebacked sometime in the 20th century, preserving the old red and black morocco labels on spine; all the standard cancels are present, per Pottle. Regarding the "give" (versus "gve") reading, Pottle notes that the "booksellers have given this rather uninteresting 'point' more attention than it deserves." Celebrated for its intimacy and vividness, Boswell's Life of Johnson "is one of the best books in the world. It is assuredly a great, very great work. Homer is not more decidedly the first of the heroic poets, Shakespeare is not more decidedly the first of the dramatists, Demosthenes is not more decidedly the first of the orators, than Boswell is the first of biographers" (Macaulay).
