James Iredell
1791. Laws of the State of North Carolina By James Iredell Published: Printed by Hodge & Wills, Printers to the State of North Carolina, Edenton, 1791. FIRST EDITION. Folio. 712, (xxiv), [2 leaves], 713-732, 20, 19, (2), 8, 20, 45, 15, 27, 20, 8 pages. Bound in early full calf with blind tooling along the edges of the binding. The front and rear hinges appear to have been reinforced with a flexible type of glue. Burgundy spine label is a little chipped and shows some wormholes. The binding is sound. Lacks the front flyleaves; the first leaf is the title page. 20th century pencil notations and an antique shop's label is on the front paste down. Early owner's signature of Isaac Nelson is at the top of the title page, and there is a red stain on the title. The text is browned and foxed with the foxing sometimes heavy. There are also several 19th century inscriptions on the rear flyleaves and in the text, dating from the 1850s as well as during the Civil War. One 1851 inscription on the rear flyleaf notes that this volume was bought (by Steven Hester) at Allen Whicker's auction in Forsyth County in 1850. The initial title page for this work is 1791, but the date on the spine is 1799. This volume also has about 9 separately printed compilations of yearly laws bound in at the rear covering each year from 1792 to 1799. Each section is paginated separately and has renewed printers signatures (A, B, C, etc.). There is a final 8 page index at the very end. Thus, while the initial and main body of the work was 1791, this seems to have been bound together in 1799. A scarce 18th century … [Click Below for Full Description]

DE VIER JAARGETIJDEN Tekening in potlood en waterverf vervaardigd in 1791 door Abraham Delfos naar het schilderij uit 1752 van Jan Wandelaar. Gesigneerd en gedateerd op de steen vooraan. Afm.? 31,8 x 24,2 cm. We zien vier putti voorgesteld als de seizoenen. De Lente snuffelt aan lavendel, een in de Oudheid veelgebruikte opwekker van de liefde; de Herfst kijkt ons aan en gebaart met druiven naar een kelk dat we wijn moeten maken, de druivenbladeren liggen in een krans om z?n hoofd; in de zomer is het warm en de putto doet genoeglijk een dutje op de geoogste koren; de Winter tenslotte verwarmt zich boven een schaal met gloeiende kolen. Op de ru?ne in de achtergrond een rozet met de tekens van de dierenriem en de god Janus, de god met de twee gezichten. Het linker, jonge gezicht is januari, het nieuwe jaar; het oude gezicht (traditioneel met baard) stelt het oude jaar voor. De een kijkt naar de toekomst, de ander naar het verleden. Er wordt verwezen naar de cyclus van het leven. Abraham Delfos (1731-1820) was graveur, tekenaar en kunsthandelaar in een tijd dat ons Vaderland nog eene rijke voorraad van oude schilderijen bevatte. Als kunsthandelaar had hij schier dagelijks gelegenheid ter uitbreiding zijner bespiegelende kennis. Delfos kende collega Jan Wandelaar (1690-1759) uit Leiden waar deze werkte aan een beroemd boek met anatomische prenten van het menselijke lichaam. (Aardig detail: in het vrij stoffige Geschiedenis der Vaderlandsche Schilderkunst uit 1816, wordt terloops vermeld dat Wandelaar?s tweede vrouw ene Catharina Beatrix van Eyk, wegens hare schoonheid niet onopg … [Click Below for Full Description]

London: Henry Baldwin for Charles Dilly, 1791. First edition, the so-called second state with "give" reading on p. 135 in vol. 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).

James Lackington
London: printed and sold by the author, 1791. First edition, 8vo, pp. xxxii, 344; engraved portrait (slightly offset onto title-p.), woodcut of the branch on p. 285; uncut; contemporary calf-backed marbled boards, spine a little perished and with an early leather repair to the joints; a good, sound copy, with the bookplate of Lee Edmonds Grove. Laid in is a letter addressed to Lackington dated Salisbury, Nov. 16, 1804 from John Malham (1747-1821, miscellaneous writer of arithmetics, navigational texts, and religious stories, among others) who was apparently in arrears with Lackington: "The misfortunes into which I have sometimes fallen in the past have been productive of the most serious present every resource is totally drained, that I have much difficulty from my own bad health and a young sickly family, to subsist from week to week." He tries to persuade Lackington into accepting "at a fair price...any of my publications, as the Arithmetic or the Sermons. I should wish to balance the account in that way to your satisfaction, - being the only means in my power." Malham goes on optimistically: "I should wish to see your catalogue, to look forward to better days, which yet I hope for.". [Attributes: First Edition]

(Paris) : Imp. de Marat, 1791. In-8° broché en état de parution, non coupé, non rogné, à grandes marges, relié par une cordelette, 40 pages. Dans une compilation de 11 lettres sur des sujets différents, Marat s'attaque à ce qu'il dénonce comme de l'imposture de la part de nombreux hommes de lettres et de sciences qui lui sont contemporains. Il attaque Lavoisier en ces termes : « Mais il fallait placer à la tête Lavoisier, le pere putatif de toutes les découvertes qui font du bruit. Comme il n'a point d'idées propres, il s'arrange de celles des autres : mais ne sachant presque jamais les apprécier, il les abandonne avec autant de légerté qu'il les a prises, et il change de système comme de souliers. Dans l'espace de six mois, je l'ai vu s'accrocher, tour à tour, aux nouvelles doctrines du feu principe, du fluide igné, de la chaleur latente. Dans un espace plus court encore, je l'ai vu s'engouer du phlogistique pur et le proscrire impitoyablement. » Jean-Paul Marat, initiation : à Londres en 1774, loge d'Amsterdam La Bien-Aimée *** - - - - - - - - - - [Marat against intellectual fraud] In a compilation of 11 letters on different subjects, Marat attacks what he denounces as imposture on the part of many men of letters and sciences who are contemporary with him. He attacked Lavoisier in these terms: « But Lavoisier, the putative father of all the discoveries that make noise, had to be placed at his head. As he has no ideas of his own, he manages to deal with those of others: but almost never knowing how to appreciate them, he abandons them as lightly as he took them, and change … [Click Below for Full Description]

Discreet repair to spine.Following his study of medicine at the Universite de Montpellier, La Billardiere turned towards natural history and more specifically botany. In 1786, under Louis Guillaume Le Monnier's initiative, he was sent on a mission by the French government to Cyprus, Palestine and Syria. This was a prolific journey for him and he brought back a large number of plants which allowed him, on his return, to start to publish his work under the title Icones Plantarum Syriæ rariorum descriptionibus et observationibus illustratæ. This considerable work, started in 1791, will not be completed until 1812 because the author was sent in search of La Perouse's research expedition to Oceania. [Attributes: First Edition]
