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 … [Klicken Sie unten für eine ausführliche Beschreibung]

WILLIAM ROBERTSON
London: A. Strahan and T. Cadell, 1791. First edition, 4to, pp. xii, 364, [12]; 2 large engraved folding maps; recent quarter brown calf over marbled boards, red morocco label on spine; fore margin of one map miscreased. This copy with the ownership signature on the half-title of "C. Wm. Admiral Duff." Encouraged by his friend, Edward Gibbon, Robertson, the leading Scottish historian of his day, undertook this history of ancient India. He concludes with the hope that this account of "the early and high civilization of India, and the wonderful progress of its inhabitants in elegant arts and useful science, may have some influence upon the behavior of Europeans towards that people" (DNB). Kress B.2182. [Attributes: First Edition]

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 … [Klicken Sie unten für eine ausführliche Beschreibung]

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 … [Klicken Sie unten für eine ausführliche Beschreibung]

Burke, Edmund
London: Printed; New York: Re-printed by Hugh Gaine, at the Bible, in Hanover-Square, 1791. First American edition. The first edition was published the first of November 1790. [4], 196 pp. 12mo. Later printed wrappers. Some light offsetting or browning, staining in the lower margin of several pages at the back, else an excellent copy. In a green cloth open end case. PMM 239 (first edition); Evans 23238. Item #65251 M. Dupont, Burke's friend, had requested Burke's opinion on the French revolutionary movement, apparently assuming that the response would be encouraging. The "Reflections" carried his response and comments, which he intended as a warning for those of the English who were in agreement with the revolutionary policies and especially to the Revolutionary Society and the Constitutional Society. He spent a year writing the work and within a year of its publication it had been through eleven editions. Its reception was mixed, the King liked it, the Whigs, being pro-Revolutionary didn't, and the nation generally looked at the Revolution with a more critical eye. As time proved his warnings correct he was credited with being somewhat of a prophet. There were several written responses, including Thomas Paine's "Rights of Man". [Attributes: First Edition]

[FLUTE] Gabrielsky, Johann Wilhelm. (1791-1846) & Berbiguier, Benoit Tranquille. (1782-1835) & Fürstenau, Anton Bernhard. (1792-1852)Sammelband of Flute Trios Set of three Sammelband volumes of rare trios for three flutes by three flutist-composers of the early nineteenth century. Six works are by Johann Gabrielsky [Gabrielski], German flautist and composer, a contemporary of Boehm, Furstenau and Reicha, who performed in the theater orchestra of Stettin and as a royal chamber musician in Berlin. Five works are by the French flautist Benoit Tranquille Berbiguier, composer of many works for flute including several instructional works, and one work is by the German flautist and composer Anton Bernhard Fürstenau. "Berbiguier strongly advocated a larger flute sound than was usual in France. The perfection of his technique was admired, as was the sweetness of his tone, although at least one of his pupils regarded it as rather coarse. His adherence to the Bourbons led him to flee Paris during the Revolution of 1830 and he settled in Pontlevoy, remaining there until his death. Berbiguier, like several others of his time, was a left-handed player. He composed prolifically for his instrument; among his published works are several good instruction books dating from 1818 to 1838, the last issued posthumously; partial translations into English were also published."

Justice William Blacksone
T. Cadell, London (see photo). Please review the photos and see comments under description below. Blackstone's Commentaries on the Laws of England, 4 volumes, 11th edition, 1791, printed by A. Strahan and W. Woodfall, Law-Printers to the King's Most Excellent Majesty for T. Cadell, In the Strand, London. Condition, Seller is not a professional book dealer but would rate these four volumes as Good. Please review the eleven photos provided of all sides of the volumes, the four inside cover pages and the main cover page opposite the picture of Justice Blackstone in Volume 1. The bindings are generally firm, although there is some looseness at the top of Volume 1. All pages are in tact and the print is remarkably clear and legible given the publication date. There are no significant tears or folds; there are a few very minor ones. See below regarding readers's markings. As can be seen from the photos, the stamp of a prior owner, Jofeph L Ofte, appears on the inside cover page of each volume. My internet research reveals that he was a minister in 18th Century England, probably the original owner. In Volume 1, on otherwise blank pages inside the front cover, there are written the names of two other prior owners, one of whom was Joseph L. Runnells, Chicago, lll. My internet research reveals that he was a Republican functionary in Iowa who eventually became General Counsel and Chairman of the Board of the Pullman Company. In Volume 1, there are minor pen/pencil markings on p. 40, two underlinings and a word and date written in the margin on p. 97, a very minor pen/pencil mark on p. … [Klicken Sie unten für eine ausführliche Beschreibung]

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 … [Klicken Sie unten für eine ausführliche Beschreibung]

The head of the spines are chipped and there is a piece out from the head of the second volume's spine. The pages are lightly toned and there is offsetting to the endpapers and pastedowns. There are occasional minor stains and a few page corners are creased. There is slight damage to the top of the foreedge of the first volume and a couple of tiny holes to the front margin of one plate. Very good.

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 … [Klicken Sie unten für eine ausführliche Beschreibung]

In - 32 ( 6.5 x 11.5 cm.) in Paris, at Janet success. of Mr. Jubert, street Santiago (1791). Red Morocco. Management of a golden triple-net, adorned with smooth back, title piece in green leather, gold title, lace on the cups and clasp with graphite pencil. Review of the time. Engraved title, 10 black and white insert boards, 24 pp. on bluish paper (songs with engraved music), then 48 pp. on blue paper, agenda, etc., then 6 ff. calendar to 1792. This rare horoscope Almanac was published and established by a craftsman Gilder and maker of "blankets, memories in Morocco and embroideries of all species". The title page shows a composition a landscape with a Cherub and a hexagon with the numbers referring to the text in order to get the answers to the questions. The title page and 10 other insert engravings are engraved by Dorgez. Very interesting copy, because at the end of the first part, we find the tale: "The sick Dyer", which has been subsequently reproduced many times. Blank sheets of the agenda include handwritten notes, presumably of the 18th and the hexagon of the title page served obviously, because it carries many tiny traces of a PIN, who served from the back to shoot a number! Nice copy, rare and fresh.

CONDORCET (Jean Antoine Nicolas de Caritat, marquis de)
[Paris], De l'Imp. du Cercle social, s.d. [juillet 1791]. In-8, broché en cahiers, 8 p., non rogné. Edition originale, exemplaire de l'auteur, de ce texte fondateur, que Condorcet lut au Cercle Social, dans la grande salle du Cirque du Palais-Royal, le 8 juillet 1791. "La première proclamation de la supériorité de la République", "la première fois que, dans ce pays, une voix - et quelle voix ! - s'élevait pour nier l'utilité de la monarchie considérée comme 'une institution dangereuse et corruptrice' et pour proclamer l'utilité d'une république, dont la théorie était exposée avec une éloquente précision" (H. Delsaux, 'Condorcet journaliste', p. 45-49). "A ce moment crucial pour la Révolution, se lève un homme seul, le dernier des Encyclopédistes, l'ami de Voltaire et de d'Alembert, l'Incarnation de l'esprit des Lumières (...). Et cet homme proclame haut et fort que la liberté est républicaine (...). Ce 8 juillet 1791, Condorcet dresse calmement l'acte de décès de la monarchie française" (E. & R. Badinter, 'Condorcet: Un intellectuel en politique', p. 331-332).
