Peerage of Scotland)
Printed in the year, [Edinburgh?] 1791 - 4to, pp. 38. Stitched as issued with original marbled paper covers (with no backstrip). Some creasing to corners and edges, a few short tears to edges of wrappers. A scarce, privately printed pamphlet providing arguments from history and use that the Prince of Wales (later George IV) held the titles of Duke of Rothesay, Earl of Carrick, etc., in the Peerage of Scotland. It evidently answers a charge that these had lapsed - perhaps stemming from the regency crisis of 1789, combined with the preference for Prince of Wales as the heir apparent's title following the Union, or else perhaps the dispute goes all the way back to the absence of a holder of the titles between 1751 (the death of Frederick Louis) and 1762 (the birth of the future George IV). ESTC locates copies in the BL, House of Lords, and NLS (x3) only in the UK, plus just the Huntington elsewhere. ESTC T83694. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

MOSES SEIXAS
Philadelphia, PA, 1791. In 1789, President George Washington toured New England but did not visit Rhode Island because it had not yet ratified the Constitution. Rhode Island was the last of the original thirteen states to ratify the Constitution, on May 29, 1790. Fewer than three months later, Washington visited Rhode Island with Secretary of State Thomas Jefferson and others. On August 18, 1790, Washington stopped at the Touro Synagogue, and Warden Moses Seixas read this letter from the congregation to Washington.Washington's reply to the Touro letter (which unfortunately is not printed here) is his most famous letter, and one of the greatest statements on religious freedom. Washington's declaration that the U.S. government gives "to bigotry no sanction, to persecution no assistance" is actually drawn from Seixas' letter to him. Washington made loyalty to the nation, rather than a particular creed, the prerequisite for religious freedom and equality. [MOSES SEIXAS].Pamphlet. The American Museum, or Universal Magazine, for June 1791. Philadelphia, PA: Matthew Carey. Final issue of vol 9. Disbound.

THE FRENCH CONSTITUTION. - [HUMAN RIGHTS DECLARATION]
Paris, Didot Jeune, Chez Garnery, 1791. 12mo. Orig. wrappers, all edges uncut. Front wrapper partly mounted. Some tears and lack to back, thus a bit loose. Internally only minor brownspotting. 160 pp. First pocket-edition of the highly influential French Constitution. The Constitution was first printed in folio the same year as this one, and the 12-mo-edition is the first edition to follow after that in folio. The pocket-edition was probably the first meant for the public.The Constitution of 1791 is the fruit of the labours of the French National Constituent Assembly which sat from the summer of 1789 to September 1791 and included amongst its members some of France's foremost men, including Mirabeau, Sieyès and Condorcet. It is a document of enormous historical and symbolic importance, which owes the sway that it holds over our political unconscious less to the (ill-fated) political order it established than to the will to erect a new political order, of which it was the expression. The constitution itself was only short-lived. Voted on September 3rd, 1791, it was effectively brought to an end on August 10th, 1792, when insurgents from the Paris Commune invaded the Tuileries and suspended the king. The Constitution was - in the words of French historian Francois Furet - an ephemeral work, but one which has not ceased to haunt all the French constitutions that have followed in its wake. Unknown to most, the Constitution of 1791 did not entail a complete break with l'Ancien Régime. In fact, the political order envisaged by the Assembly was a form of constitutional monarchy.

1791. The author of the document "Mr.Irving to Mr. Pitt" undoubtedly refers to William Pitt. Portions of the document read: <I>"This branch is divided into two distinct Heads namely first the direct Trade of G. Britan Secondly That part of the Trade of the British Colonies and Islands which is not carried on by a direct intercourse with the Mother Country...an extensive view of some of the most Important objects of National concern...I have taken the liberty Sir of troubling you with these remarks, upon the Rates or Estimates in this Office, in order to show that the difference between the value of Imports and Exports is very little to be depended upon, in striking the Balance of Trade, and consequently the Arguments held both in and out of Parliament, and in the voluminous writing of various Authors, upon the subject of commercial Balances, chiefly founded upon the Accounts of the Inspector Generals office...In striking the Balance between this Country & the British West Indies, there are several circumstances to be taken into consideration. To the direct Exports from hence, the value of the Goods exported to Africa ought to be added, because the Slaves purchased with those Goods on the Coast of Guinea are taken off by the West Indies...I forbear making any observation upon our Trade with the States of America...The following account will show the Effect which the restrictions they have put upon our shipping have already had on our carrying Trade to that Country...Prior to the Revolution, the Charges of Collecting the Revenues in France amounted to L 11 17 percent..."</I>

With the old library stamps of the Classen library on each title leaf and their crest on each spine. A German translation of Smellie's "Philosophy of Natural History". The Classen library in Copenhagen was founded through a donation of the private book collection, comprising of around 20000 volumes, belonging to the Danish businessman Johan Frederik Classen (1725-92). The donation also included funds to keep the library open to the public and for new acquisitions. Classen's brother donated funds to build a house for the library. In 1867 the library was divided between Copenhagen University Library and Landbohøjskolen (agricultural school). Many duplicates from the original collection has been sold over the years.

Boswell James
by Henry Baldwin for Charles Dilly, 1791. 2 volumes. First edition, with 'give' on p. 135. With round robin plate, signatures page, portrait frontispiece. 4to, contemporary-style full rich calf, richly gilt decorated spines, red and green contrasting morocco labels gilt, key-rolls gilt at the top and bottom of the spines, gilt bands to the spines. xii, (16), 516; 588. A very nice copy indeed, the bindings in fine order, fresh and clean and with just some normal age to the text-blocks. IMPORTANT FIRST EDITION IN QUITE PLEASING AND VERY WELL PRESERVED CONDITION. 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 heroic Poets,--Shakespeare is not more decidedly the first of Dramatists,--Demosthenes is not more decidedly the first of Orators, than Boswell is the first of Biographers..." (Macauley, in the Edinburgh Review, 1831). Boswell learned a great deal about the art of biography from his subject, and brought to his task boundless curiosity, persistence, and zest. Boswell had been collecting material for this work since his first interview with Johnson in 1763, and was confident that his kind of biography, "which gives not only a History of Johnson's visible progress through the world, and of his publications, but a view of his mind in his letters and conversations, is the most perfect that can be conceived, and will be more of a Life than any work that has ever yet appeared." Only 1750 copies of the first edition were printed.

Haydn, Joseph.
Oblong folio (335 x 239 mm). 18 pp., engraved throughout Contemporary coloured paper wrappers. Signed by Haydn on the title page. Termed the "original first edition" by Hoboken. A secular cantata composed around 1789, the first edition proper was published by Artaria in 1790. The publisher Bland had visited Haydn at Eszterháza; he was instrumental in bringing Haydn to London and provided his first lodging there in January 1791. "Arianna" was performed in London in February by the soprano castrato Gasparo Pacchierotti, with Haydn accompanying on the harpsichord: "On 18 February [1791] Haydn made his first appearance in a concert in which he accompanied his cantata 'Ariana a Naxos' on the pianoforte. The success was such that the cantata's performance needed to be repeated a few days later" (cf. Huss, p. 146f.). Haydn later would regarded the two periods he spent in the British capital (1791-92 and 1794-95) as the happiest of his life. - Beautifully preserved. Hob. II, 298. RISM H/HH, 2584. Hoboken cat. 9, no. 1583 (fig. 17). Eitner V, p. 68.

A Paris, à l'Imprimerie du Cercle Social, et chez les principaux libraires du Royaume, 1791. - in-8. 140pp. Cartonnage moderne à la Bradel. Edition Originale. Ce livre est une réhabilitation du marin et corsaire bourguignon François Thurot (1727-1760), qui fut un des principaux acteurs de la lutte pour la domination des mers entre la France et l'Angleterre. Après sa mort prématurée à 33 ans des rumeurs s'étaient répandues sur sa vie, auxquelles le présent ouvrage se propose de mettre un terme. Thurot, par sa brillante carrière, constituait pour les "François devenus libres, un de ces modèles de courage et d'héroïsme qui, sortis de cette classe utile jadis si méprisée et si avilie, sut vaincre toutes les difficultés." (préface, p.III). Selon Jaeger (Les Aventuriers de la Mer, 552), l'auteur serait le politicien Nicolas-Joseph Marey. L'ouvrage est issu des presses de Nicolas de Bonneville, directeur du Cercle Social qui fut un "extraordinaire carrefour d'idées" pendant la Révolution (cf. Furet, Microéditions Hachette).
