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]

Robert Jackson
London: Printed for J. Murray, 1791. Condition: Very Good binding. 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. Bookplate on the front pastedown. Not in Osler. (Dictionary of National Biography X, 542. Garrison-Morton 10111.). [Attributes: First Edition]

WILLIAM IV
1791. saying that he is "interested in the welfare of Lieutenant Delafosse of the York, I beg leave to introduce this young officer to your Lordship's kind notice and protection. I believe him to be one of merit and worthy of promotion. I always embrace every opportunity with pleasure of calling myself to your Lordship ...", 1 side 4to., Bushey House, 14th June From 1791 William lived with an Irish actress, Dorothea Bland, better known by her stage name, Mrs. Jordan, the title "Mrs." being assumed at the start of her stage career to explain an inconvenient pregnancy. William had grown up under the Royal Marriages Act 1772, which forbade descendants of George II from marrying unless they either obtained the monarch's consent or, if over the age of 25, gave twelve months' notice to the Privy Council. Several of George III's sons, including William, chose to cohabit with the women they loved, rather than seek a wife. George III accepted his son's relationship with the actress (though recommending that he halve her allowance) and in 1797, he created William Ranger of Bushy Park, which included a large residence, Bushy House, for William's growing family. William used Bushy as his principal residence until he became king.

A very scarce edition of this work, particularly in such a well-restored condition. ESTC No. T142583. Jeanne de Valois-Saint-Remy, the Contesse de la Motte was a descendant of the Valois royal family through an illegitimate son of Henry II. She is best known for her role in duping the Cardinal de Rohan into purchasing a necklace that held the value of 2,000,000 livres for Queen Marie Antoinette, who had no involvement in the plan. Jeanne pretended that she had a good relationship with the Queen and convinced Rohan that he was in private communications with the Queen. Rohan asked Jeanne to arrange a meeting and therefore met a prostitute by the name of Nicole Leguay d'Olivia who posed as the Queen during the meeting. Jeanne told Rohan that Marie Antoinette wished to purchase the necklace but did not want to pu … [Click Below for Full Description]

Joseph Butler
Butler Family of Burlington NJ, 1791. A FANTASTIC EARLY AMERICAN ESTATE HANDWRITTEN LEATHER LEDGER FROM THE BUTLER FAMILY OF BURLINGTON CO, NJ! THIS INCLUDES DIRECT TIES TO DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE SIGNER ROBERT MORRIS, JOHN ADAMS' SON THOMAS BOYLSTON, GEORGE WASHINGTON'S PHYSICIAN, DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE PRINTER JOHN DUNLAP AND MORE! This ledger was kept by Joseph Butler and Rachel Butler on the death of Rachel's Husband and Joseph's Father, John Butler. It was used to record payouts by the estate. From what I have been able to find out through research John Butler married Rachel Quest Oct 6, 1758 at Christ Church, Philadelphia, PA. John Butler was the son of Richard Butler and was born in New Jersey, possibly in Mansfield Township, Burlington Co, on Aug. 29, 1725 and according to records died in Chesterfield Township in Burlington, May 30th 1789. There are numerous references to Burlington NJ throughout. His family is also mentioned throughout, including his wife Rachel, his children James Butler, Joseph Butler, Samuel Butler, Israel Butler, Shadelock Butler, Rebecca (William) Brooks, and Elizabeth Prickett. The earliest receipt in the ledger is dated Sept 29, 1791, although there are earlier references on a few pinned in receipts. A majority of the receipts date from 1791 - 1792, then 1793 - 1805 it becomes more sparse. Additionally, it appears a family member used the book to record a couple of transactions in 1859-1860 as well. Some of the signers of the receipts include: Thomas Adams (I believe this to be Thomas Boylston Adams, son of Founding Father and 2nd P … [Click Below for Full Description]

EDY, J[ohn] W[illiam]
London,: John Harris Sweetings, N. 24 Cornhill & N. 8 Broad Street, February 17, 1791. DescriptionEtching with aquatint. NotesJohn William Edy (1760-1820) was a painter and engraver. He trained at the Royal Academy Schools from 1779, and made a successful career in landscapes, often working with the publisher John Boydell, who sent him to make drawings for his best known work, Picturesque Scenery of Norway. Edys view of the river shows the river bank at Lambeth in the foreground, with Westminster Bridge and Westminster Abbey in the distance. The river bank is teeming with life: there are porters unloading cargo, a ferry arriving with passengers, and a flower seller with a boat full of plants. On a flight of steps off the shore a fashionably dressed couple converse. There is a lavishly decorated barge moored in the centre, surrounded by more humble craft. An interesting inclusion is the Artificial Stone Manufactory visible at the far left: this is most probably the business of Eleanor Coade, a remarkable businesswoman and sculptor who produced durable stone-like products out of ceramic. She took over the factory from Daniel Pincot, a former employee of Josiah Wedgewood. Coade stone was used on buildings from the Royal Pavilion in Brighton to the Royal Naval College in Greenwich.

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. The Preface explains the need for a book adapted "to the meridian of our own Lodges." 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].

Paris : De l'imprimerie nationale, 1791. In-8° broché sous couverture de papier dominoté de l'époque, 2 pages. Ce texte rapporte le décret du dernier jour de la troisième et dernière mandature de Bureau de Pusy ou il est conclu que "La France n'oublie point ce qu'elle doit à vos exemples, ce qu'elle doit à cette sage Pensilvanie au sein de laquelle les législateurs de l'Amérique osèrent annoncer au monde les vrais principes de l'art social. Puissent les habitans de cette terre glorieuse & fortunée reconnoitre dans le Décret de l'Assemblée Nationale les sentiments qui animent les premiers amis de l'Indépendance américaine!" C'est l'un des treize États fondateurs des États-Unis. Le roi Charles II d'Angleterre avait contracté un prêt important auprès du père de William Penn. Comme remboursementn. 1, il octroya à William Penn une grande région au sud-ouest du New Jersey le 4 mars 1682, contenant tant la Pennsylvanie que le Delaware actuel. Penn appela la région Sylvania (forêt en latin), que Charles changea en Pennsylvanie. La colonie accueille des sectes allemandes et les baptistes irlandais et gallois. Le climat de tolérance religieuse encourage l'économie. Après la guerre de Trente Ans (1618-1648) dans l'empire germanique, 125 000 luthériens allemands s'installent en Pennsylvanie. Vers 1720-30, le pain est déjà trois fois moins cher qu'au Massachusetts, notamment qu'à Boston. Vers 1750, la population de Philadelphie dépasse celle de Boston.

THIS INCLUDES DIRECT TIES TO DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE SIGNER ROBERT MORRIS, JOHN ADAMS' SON THOMAS BOYLSTON, GEORGE WASHINGTON'S PHYSICIAN, DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE PRINTER JOHN DUNLAP AND MORE! This ledger was kept by Joseph Butler and Rachel Butler on the death of Rachel's Husband and Joseph's Father, John Butler. It was used to record payouts by the estate. From what I have been able to find out through research John Butler married Rachel Quest Oct 6, 1758 at Christ Church, Philadelphia, PA. John Butler was the son of Richard Butler and was born in New Jersey, possibly in Mansfield Township, Burlington Co, on Aug. 29, 1725 and according to records died in Chesterfield Township in Burlington, May 30th 1789. There are numerous references to Burlington NJ throughout. His family is also mentioned throughout, including his wife Rachel, his children James Butler, Joseph Butler, Samuel Butler, Israel Butler, Shadelock Butler, Rebecca (William) Brooks, and Elizabeth Prickett. The earliest receipt in the ledger is dated Sept 29, 1791, although there are earlier references on a few pinned in receipts. A majority of the receipts date from 1791 - 1792, then 1793 - 1805 it becomes more sparse. Additionally, it appears a family member used the book to record a couple of transactions in 1859-1860 as well.
