JAMES DANA
"Our late warfare was expressly founded on such principles as these: 'All men are created equal: They are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights; among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness'.... Those who profess to understand and regard the principles of liberty should cheerfully unite to abolish slavery...."In 1784, Connecticut passed a law that all slaves born after March 1, 1784, were to be freed before or when they reached the age of 25. In 1790, a group of clergymen, lawyers, and academics formed the Connecticut Society for the Promotion of Freedom and for the Relief of Persons Unlawfully Holden in Bondage to support the law. Yale University president and Congregationalist minister Ezra Stiles, formerly a slave owner, served as the society's first president. Here, Rev. Doctor James Dana reviews the history and extent of slavery in the world. Calling it unjust, unchristian, and against the principles of the American Revolution, he urges abolition. Dana's sermon, and those preached at the Society by Jonathan Edwards Jr., Theodore Dwight, and others, were among the most popular anti-slavery literature from the period. However, the Connecticut Society lapsed and disappeared after the turn of the century.JAMES DANA.Pamphlet. The African Slave Trade. A Discourse Delivered in the City of New-Haven, September 9, 1790, before The Connecticut Society for The Promotion of Freedom. Half-title: Doctor Dana's Sermon on the African Slave Trade.

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 … [Cliquez ci-dessous pour une description complète]

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).

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 … [Cliquez ci-dessous pour une description complète]

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]

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 … [Cliquez ci-dessous pour une description complète]

[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." (Philip Bate, New Grove.) The son of Caspar Fürstenau, Anton Fürstenau "made his first public appearance as a flautist in Oldenburg at the age of seven and became a member of the Oldenburg court orchestra in 1804.

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. … [Cliquez ci-dessous pour une description complète]

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 … [Cliquez ci-dessous pour une description complète]

READ, John K
1792 1st Virginia ed Ahiman Rezon Masonic PROVENANCE of George Washington Lodge The ‘Ahiman Rezon’ was written in the mid-1700s as a book of constitutions for the Grand Lodge, including orders of rites, ceremonies, behaviors, and histories of freemasonry. It concerns God and religion stating that ‘a mason is obliged to believe firmly in true worship of the eternal God.’ This 1791 first Virginia John Dixon edition of ‘Ahiman Rezon’ was published in Richmond and dedicated to George Washington during his first term as President. This particular example is utterly unique and notable because of its provenance.
