François LE VAILLANT
Second edition, after the first made in Paris in 1790. It is similarly illustrated with 12 boards including some unfolding and the famous board of the Hottentote apron.Relliures full sheepskin marbled vintage. Smooth back decorated with 2 florets and 2 boxed urns, wheels. Title pieces in red morocco and tomaison in black morocco. Friction. Upper joint of the volume I opened in tail. Three holes on the back. 7 blunt corners. Some leaflets a little yellow. Good copy.François Levaillant (1753-1824) is a French explorer and ornithologist. In 1781, the treasurer of the Dutch East India Company sent him to Cape Province, South Africa. He collected numerous copys in the region, yielding more than 2,000 bird skins in France. All his books were a great success across Europe. Its ornithological collection will join the museum of Leiden, France not being purchaser. Some bird names he imagined are still in use. Some time later, species will bear his name, like Levaillant's Cuckoo. In the preface, the author tells of his childhood in Suriname and his first passions as a collector. The book contains interesting descriptions of the Hotentots and Gonaquais, their habits and customs. The book was a great success, probably due to the colorful and adventurous narrative of the author.

Paine, qui se trouvait ? l'?poque entre Londres et Paris, a probablement surveill? lui-m?me l'impression de l'ouvrage avant que l'Assembl?e Constituante ne lui donne la citoyennet? fran?aise. L'ouvrage devait ?tre r?imprim? en France en 1793. Lorsqu'il parut, le livre fut attribu? ? John Adams. Paine discute les origines et les objectifs du gouvernement anglais et attaque la constitution britannique et l'institution de la monarchie h?r?ditaire. Dans un langage ? la port?e d'un large public, l'ouvrage plaide pour la sup?riorit? de la loi naturelle sur les codes politiques et la philosophie des droits naturels qui devaient servir de cadre ? la D?claration de l'ind?pendance des ?tats-Unis d'Am?rique. Ayant convenu avec l'imprimeur R. Bell de partager les profits ?ventuels de l'ouvrage, il envisageait d'affecter sa part du profit ? l'acquisition de gants d'hiver pour les troupes de Washington. L'?dition de mille exemplaires fut mise en vente le 10 janvier 1776 et fut aussit?t ?puis?, l'imprimeur sp?cifiant qu'il ne restait aucun b?n?fice ? partager.

Thomas Bewick; Ralph Beilby
Newcastle Upon Tyne: S. Hodgson, R. Beilby and T. Bewick, 1791. The second edition is much improved and enlarged from the first. Thomas Bewick, 1753-1828, was an English wood engraver and ornithologist. Bewick showed, at a very early age, a talent for drawing. He had no lessons in art. At the age of 14 he was apprenticed to Ralph Beilby, an engraver in Newcastle. In 1775 he received a premium from the Royal Society for the Encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce. In 1776 he became a partner in Beilby's workshop. A General History of Quadrupeds first appeared in 1790. The Quadrupeds deals with mammals of the whole world, and is particularly thorough on some of the domestic animals. It includes bats and seals but does not include whales or dolphins. Bewick was helped by his intimate knowledge of the habits of animals acquired during his constant excursions into the country. Bewick's art is considered the pinnacle of its medium. This is likely due to his methods: Bewick, unlike his predecessors, would carve in harder woods, notably box wood, against the grain, using fine tools normally favoured by metal engravers. This proved to be far superior, and has been the dominant method used since. Ralph Beilby, 1744-1817, was an English engraver, working chiefly on silver and copper. Beilby became a silversmith, jeweller, and seal-engraver under his father and elder brothers. In addition, he became a copper engraver to meet the demand of the then North England market. In 1767 Thomas Bewick was apprenticed to him. The texts in Bewick's A General History of Quadrupeds (1790) an … [Click Below for Full Description]

Item #45436 "The Social Contract, originally published in 1762 as On the Social Contract; or, Principles of Political Rights (French: Du Contrat Social; ou Principes du Droit Politique) ... in which Rousseau theorized about the best way to establish a political community in the face of the problems of commercial society, which he had already identified in his Discourse on Inequality [1754]. The Social Contract helped inspire political reforms or revolutions in Europe, especially in France. The Social Contract argued against the idea that monarchs were divinely empowered to legislate. Rousseau asserts that only the people, who are sovereign, have that all-powerful right." [Wiki]. Per PMM, "'Contrat Social' remains Rouseeau's greatest work. ... a work of compelling eloquence. ...

Philadelphia: Gedruckt bey Carl Cist, Num. 104. in der Zweyten-Strasse, 1791. 1st Edition. (Evans 23202) Extremely rare and desirable copy, this is a first edition German-American New Testament printed by Russian-born Moravian Charles Cist, whom with Melchior Steiner, a Swiss, established a printing press in Philadelphia in 1776, where they published many works in German and English. Steiner and Cist were partners from 1776 to 1781. Cist moved on his own and printed this 1791 NT, and later published a New Testament in English in 1799 (Hills 70). Carl Cist, whose birth name was Carl Thiel, was apparently the first in America to publish New Testaments in more than one language, and was also the first in America to publish a pharmacopoeia. Cist also printed, in English, the second volume of the three-volume 1791 Wesley New Testament (Hills 35). Cist moved his business to Washington, D.C., when it became the nation's capital and remained there until his death in 1804.

The History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire
1791. With a frontispiece and two large folding maps to volume I. The first folding map being the Eastern Part of the Roman Empire, the second folding map being the Western. Volumes II - VI are dated 1892 and volumes VII-XII have half-titles as called for in this edition as stated in the ESTC listing for this work. This edition is ESTC no T79691. The History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire traces the trajectory of Western civilisation from the height of the Roman Empire to the fall of Byzantium and therefore spans a nearly 1500 year period from 98 to 1590 of the Roman Empire. Therefore, Gibbon discusses the history of early Christianity, the Roman State Church as well as the history of Europe. The popularity of this work rests on Gibbon's objectivity and heavy use of primary sources. In the eighteenth century the use of primary sources for historical was very rare which was why his work was extremely popular. His methodology also became a model for later historians. The original first three volumes of this work was published in 1781 with the final three volumes being completed and issued in 1789. These twelve volumes were published two years after his final three volumes and present the contents of all six volumes across twelve octavos. With a further preface to volume VII which is the preface for the initial final three volumes Gibbon had published in 1789. Edward Gibbon wrote many historical works, but is best known for this title. This is due to its quality, the use of primary sources as well as the open criticism of organised religions.

Das Neue Testament Unsers Herrn Und Heylandes Jesu Christi, Nach Der Deutschen Uebersetzung D. Martin Luthers, Mit Kurzem Inhalt Eines Jeden Capitels, Und Vollstandiger Anweisung Gleicher Schrift-Stellen. Philadelphia: Gedruckt bey Carl Cist, Num. 104. in der Zweyten-Strasse, 1791. 1st Edition. (Evans 23202) Extremely rare and desirable copy, this is a first edition German-American New Testament printed by Russian-born Moravian Charles Cist, whom with Melchior Steiner, a Swiss, established a printing press in Philadelphia in 1776, where they published many works in German and English. Steiner and Cist were partners from 1776 to 1781. Cist moved on his own and printed this 1791 NT, and later published a New Testament in English in 1799 (Hills 70). Carl Cist, whose birth name was Carl Thiel, was apparently the first in America to publish New Testaments in more than one language, and was also the first in America to publish a pharmacopoeia. Cist also printed, in English, the second volume of the three-volume 1791 Wesley New Testament (Hills 35). Cist moved his business to Washington, D.C., when it became the nation's capital and remained there until his death in 1804. Original leather German- American binding w/ 4 bands on leather spine, with blind rule, as shown. Both clasps intact, as shown; binding with slight warp.

Thomas Bewick; Ralph Beilby
Newcastle Upon Tyne: S. Hodgson, R. Beilby and T. Bewick, 1791. The second edition is much improved and enlarged from the first. Thomas Bewick, 1753-1828, was an English wood engraver and ornithologist. Bewick showed, at a very early age, a talent for drawing. He had no lessons in art. At the age of 14 he was apprenticed to Ralph Beilby, an engraver in Newcastle. In 1775 he received a premium from the Royal Society for the Encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce. In 1776 he became a partner in Beilby's workshop. A General History of Quadrupeds first appeared in 1790. The Quadrupeds deals with mammals of the whole world, and is particularly thorough on some of the domestic animals. It includes bats and seals but does not include whales or dolphins. Bewick was helped by his intimate knowledge of the habits of animals acquired during his constant excursions into the country. Bewick's art is considered the pinnacle of its medium. This is likely due to his methods: Bewick, unlike his predecessors, would carve in harder woods, notably box wood, against the grain, using fine tools normally favoured by metal engravers. This proved to be far superior, and has been the dominant method used since. Ralph Beilby, 1744-1817, was an English engraver, working chiefly on silver and copper. Beilby became a silversmith, jeweller, and seal-engraver under his father and elder brothers. In addition, he became a copper engraver to meet the demand of the then North England market. In 1767 Thomas Bewick was apprenticed to him. The texts in Bewick's A General History of Quadrupeds (1790) an … [Click Below for Full Description]

Tieck, Ludwig
An seinen Londoner Freund, den Chirurgen Joseph Henry Green (1791-1863). - Adresse: "Herrn Green | Wohlgebohren. | London | Lincoln-Inn-Square.": "Ein junger Doktor der Medizin aus Deutschland welcher im künftigen Jahr nach London geht, soll Ihnen, treuer Freund meine herzlichen Grüsse sagen. Vielleicht können Sie ihm die Bekanntschaft unseres geehrten [Samuel] Coleridge [1772-1834] oder [Henry Crabb] Robinson [1775-1867] oder eines anderen bedeutenden Mannes verschaffen. Dass mein liebster Freund, mein ewig bedauerter [Karl Wilhelm Ferdinand] Solger [1780-1919], den Sie auch liebten, seitdem gestorben ist, wissen Sie vielleicht schon. Ich hoffe, es ist Ihnen, seit ich Sie nicht sah, immer gut gegangen. Erhalten Sie mir Ihr Andenken [...]" - Mit Rücksicht auf den Empfänger zur Gänze in lateinischer Schrift. - " In the autumn of 1817 Green went to Berlin to take a private course of instruction in philosophy with Karl Wilhelm Ferdinand Solger, to whom he had been recommended by Ludwig Tieck in London. He had already met Samuel Taylor Coleridge, who came to meet Tieck more than once at Green's house." (Wikipedia). - Solger erwähnt seinen Freund Green, den er in London kennengelernt hatte, lobend 1817 (vgl. Nachgelassene Schriften, hrsg. von Tieck und Raumer, Bd. I (1826), S 550 f. Im Tagebuch von Henry Crabb Robinson finden Tieck und Green ebenfalls Erwähnung. - Stellenweise gebräunt. Auf ein größeres Blatt montiert.

PONS (Louis-Marie, marquis de);
[Ca 1791] 2 vol. in-4 manuscrits de 195-(2) ff. ; 209 ff. à 25 lignes par page, signets de soie, veau brun granité, dos orné à nerfs, pièces de titre et de tomaison en maroquin rouge et vert, triple filet doré d'encadrement sur les plats (reliure de l'époque). Journal de voyage inédit d'un ambassadeur français en Italie reçu par ses pairs à chaque étape, parti le 5 octobre 1790 de Paris en compagnie de son frère et son neveu Monsieur de Foisy, rentré le 26 juillet 1791. La relation, copieuse, est toujours menée à la première personne sans jamais révéler l'identité de son auteur. Dès son départ, nous sommes avertis de sa fonction d'agent diplomatique muni d'une lettre de crédit quand « Mr de Tolosan, introducteur des ambassadeurs m'avait adressé à Lyon à un banquier, Mr Brady ». Poursuivant son chemin sur le routes de l'émigration - nous sommes en 1790 - il trouve « à Turin une quantité prodigieuse de français et de françaises qui se rassemblaient ou chez Mme la Comtesse d'Artois ou Me la Princesse Louise (...) On nous dit que Daguesseau avait passé à Chambéry et que le roi de Sardaigne lui avait fait dire de n'y pas rester - même chose est arrivé à Mr Hérault qui y était venu déguisé semant partout les principes de la Révolution ». Ainsi la relation est aussi un document précieux sur l'Emigration transalpine, la Noblesse européenne et ses ministres plénipotentiaires, ses secrétaires d'ambassade etc. qui accueillent notre voyageur tout le long de son périple : « Le 3 mars j'allai porter des lettres de recommandation à Mr le baron de Talleyrand et celle que Mr. Pignatelli m'a … [Click Below for Full Description]

En somme, il s'agissait de trancher, de mani?re drastique, entre les concepts de Jean d'Alembert et de Leonhard Euler dans la querelle de l'?quation des cordes vibrantes. En prenant le parti de ce dernier et en le radicalisant, Arbogast remporte le prix dans l'Assembl?e du 29 novembre 1790 : ? He showed that arbitrary functions may tolerate not only discontinuities in the Eulerian sense of the term, but also "combinations of several portions of different curves or those drawn by the free movement of the hand", that is, discontinuities in the sense afterwards used by Augustin Cauchy ?

Elizabeth Greenly, born at Titley Court, Herefordshire, was a noted and varied collector. She kept prolific diaries from 1784 until her death in 1839 which included her responses to current events and occasions in her daily life. Among the diaries many names and anecdotes of celebrities of the time appear, including Lord Byron, Marie Antoinette, Mary Wollstonecraft and Hannah More. She was known to comment on customs of foreign countries to which she and her friends had travelled, and had a keen interest in scientific discoveries and advancements including medicine and archaeology. The Greenly library contents show Elizabeth Greenly's numerous interests including: Welsh causes, Science, topography, travel, Bibliana and literature, particularly female poets. The library contains many first editions of contemporary works, and many are signed or contain her bookplate. The library contained over 1000 volumes which show the diversity and depth of her interests and give an insight into the life of this fascinating collector.

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].

James Boswell
London: Henry Baldwin / Charles Dilly, 1791. Condition: Both volumes Very Good plus, with moderate foxing throughout, light shelfwear, and a few tiny closed tears and creases. First Edition. Quarto, two volumes. With stamps from the Kansas City, MO Public Library on the first page of text of each volume, but otherwise without the usual condition issues associated with ex-libris copies. Second state, volume one with corrected spelling (p. 135: "give" for "gve" and those stated by Pottle not mentioned in the "corrections") and cancels (pp. 271-274); volume two with misnumbered pages (pp. 229, 408, 497, 504, 555, 585, 586) and cancels (pp. 29, 301), as well as hyphens (p. 288) and typographical errors (pp. 78, 92, 275, 352, 562). All plates present, including the frontispiece. A few leaf stubs are present, but not placed at the correct cancels. Contemporary re-backed full calf, seven spine compartments, one in green and one in red, with gilt titles and designs, original endpapers, all page edges cut. A monument to biography. Boswell was already a prolific author by the time of publication, but "The Life" propelled him to even higher levels of recognition. Boswell and Johnson were acquainted for a while, having met, coincidentally, in a book store. But in 1784 Johnson died, seven years before his life went into print. Pottle 79, 1967.

James Boswell
London: Henry Baldwin for Charles Dilly, 1791. First edition, 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,; very nice copy in contemporary full calf, gilt-decorated spines in 6 compartments, red and black morocco labels in 2. All the standard cancels are present, per Pottle. Regarding the "give" (versus "gve") reading, Pottle notes that the "booksellers have given this rarther uninteresting 'point' more attention tha 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).

Various Authors
London: John Bell, 1791. With two plates to each volume. Collated, volume X's The Orphan is lacking its two plates. Direct from the Regency library of Elizabeth Greenly, later Lady Elizabeth Coffin Greenly. Elizabeth Greenly, born at Titley Court, Herefordshire, was a noted and varied collector. She kept prolific diaries from 1784 until her death in 1839 which included her responses to current events and occasions in her daily life. Among the diaries many names and anecdotes of celebrities of the time appear, including Lord Byron, Marie Antoinette, Mary Wollstonecraft and Hannah More. She was known to comment on customs of foreign countries to which she and her friends had travelled, and had a keen interest in scientific discoveries and advancements including medicine and archaeology. The Greenly library contents show Elizabeth Greenly's numerous interests including: Welsh causes, Science, topography, travel, Bibliana and literature, particularly female poets. The library contains many first editions of contemporary works, and many are signed or contain her bookplate. The library contained over 1000 volumes which show the diversity and depth of her interests and give an insight into the life of this fascinating collector. These works come directly from the library of the Titley Court estate. The titles included are: Volume I: Love for Love By William Congreve, Love Makes a Man or The Fop's Fortune by Colley Cibber and The Busy Body by Mrs Centlivre Volume II: The Mourning Bride by Mr Congreve, Rule a Wife and Have a Wife by Beaumont and Fletcher and The Alychmist by Ben Jon … [Click Below for Full Description]

Edward Gibbon
London: A Strahan; T Cadell, 1791. With a frontispiece and two large folding maps to volume I. The first folding map being the Eastern Part of the Roman Empire, the second folding map being the Western. Volumes II - VI are dated 1892 and volumes VII-XII have half-titles as called for in this edition as stated in the ESTC listing for this work. This edition is ESTC no T79691. The History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire traces the trajectory of Western civilisation from the height of the Roman Empire to the fall of Byzantium and therefore spans a nearly 1500 year period from 98 to 1590 of the Roman Empire. Therefore, Gibbon discusses the history of early Christianity, the Roman State Church as well as the history of Europe. The popularity of this work rests on Gibbon's objectivity and heavy use of primary sources. In the eighteenth century the use of primary sources for historical was very rare which was why his work was extremely popular. His methodology also became a model for later historians. The original first three volumes of this work was published in 1781 with the final three volumes being completed and issued in 1789. These twelve volumes were published two years after his final three volumes and present the contents of all six volumes across twelve octavos. With a further preface to volume VII which is the preface for the initial final three volumes Gibbon had published in 1789. Edward Gibbon wrote many historical works, but is best known for this title. This is due to its quality, the use of primary sources as well as the open criticism of organised rel … [Click Below for Full Description]
