LE VAILLANT François
- Chez Les libraires associés, A La Haye 1791, In-8 (12x19,5cm), xx, 274pp. et (2) 287pp. (1), 2 volumes reliés. - Seconde édition, après la première réalisée à Paris en 1790. Elle est pareillement illustrée de 12 planches dont quelques unes dépliantes et la fameuse planche de la Hottentote au tablier. Relliures en pleine basane marbré d'époque. Dos lisses ornés de 2 fleurons et de 2 urnes caissonnés, roulettes. Pièces de titre en maroquin rouge et de tomaison en maroquin noir. Frottements. Mors supérieur du tome I ouvert en queue. Trois trous sur le dos. 7 coins émoussés. Certains feuillets un peu jaunes. Bon exemplaire. François Levaillant (1753-1824) est un explorateur et un ornithologue français. En 1781, le trésorier de la compagnie hollandaise des Indes Orientales l'envoie dans la province du Cap, en Afrique du sud. Il collecte alors de nombreux spécimens dans la région, rapportant plus de 2000 peaux d'oiseaux en France. Tous ses livres connurent un grand succès à travers l'Europe. Sa collection ornithologique rejoindra le musée de Leyde, la France ne s'en portant pas acquéreur. Certains noms d'oiseaux qu'il a imaginé sont encore en usage. Quelque temps plus tard, des espèces porteront son nom, comme le Coucou de Levaillant. Dans la préface, l'auteur conte son enfance au Surinam et ses premières passions de collectionneur. L'ouvrage contient d'intéressantes descriptions des Hotentots et des Gonaquais, leurs us et coutumes. L'ouvrage remporta un franc succès, sans doute dû à la narration colorée et aventureuse de l'auteur. [AUTOMATIC ENGLISH TRANSLATION FOLLOWS] Second … [Click Below for Full Description]

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]

SMITH, Charlotte.
Printed for T. Cadell, in the Strand. 1791 Half titles, final ad. leaf vol. IV. Contemp. full sprinkled calf, spines ruled in gilt, red & dark blue morocco labels. Early labels of Althorp, library of the Earls Spencer. A v.g. exceptionally well-preserved copy.ESTC T73501. Summers p.271. Smith's third novel, Celestina, was noticeably less 'gothic' than the two that preceded it, sitting more readily in the genre of 'courtship novel'. It follows the fortune of the titular character, an orphaned girl of minor aristocratic background, and her entrance into society. Much of the action takes place in continental Europe, the Pyrennean scenes providing ample opportunity for the author to showcase her exceptional talent for descriptive writing. The novel proved popular when first published, but Smith's star waned as the century closed, and it was not reprinted until late in the 20th century.

Plays such as 'The Recruiting Officer' by George Farquhar and Theodosius, or The Force of Love by Nathaniel Lee would have been performed at the temporary King's Theatre, in the Haymarket. Featuring a frontispiece and engraved title page to each play. Frequent playwrights include Beaumount and Fletcher, Isaac Bickerstaff, N. Rowe and Colley Cibber who was one of the directors of the 'new' larger theatre. Includes a copy of 'The Beggars Opera' By John Gay, and 'A School for Wives adapted' by Hugh Kelly.

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]

Jane de St Remy/Jeanne de Valois-Saint-Remy
J Bew, 1791. With a portrait frontispiece to volume I. 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 purchase an expensive item whilst the country was in need and so wished Rohan to be an intermediary. de La Motte's husband, the forger of the letters, posed as a valet of the Queen and collected the necklace, which was then taken to London to be separated and the large diamonds to be sold separately. This work is a biography of the central figure of this scandal, Jane de St Remy and discusses her early life, her role in the court, the necklace scandal and the repercussions following her arrest. There is also an address to the national assembly supplicating a new trial. A truly fascinating account of this scandal, which resulted in further public disfavour regarding the monarchy, despite Marie Antoinette not having a d … [Click Below for Full Description]

Some joints cracked, but firm on the cords and end-papers; insignificant insect damage to spine and heads and tails of joint in one volume, not affecting end-papers or text; otherwise a fine copy internally. The second state of text in which gathering E in volume three is correctly imposed. (A very scarce first state exists in which it has been wrongly imposed). A blank may be lacking at the end of volume one, but has been so in every copy we have seen; the missing L8 in volume four is presumably the unsigned leaf at the end of volume three.

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.

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. ... [and] indisuputable cogency.". [Attributes: First 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).

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.

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]

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] 2sans date [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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

ARBOGAST (Louis Fran?ois Antoine), LORGNA (Antonio Mario)
Saint-P?tersbourg, Imprimerie de l'Acad?mie Imp?riale. 1791, 1791, in-4, de 96 pages et 3 planches, puis 28 pages, cartonnage de l'?poque, dos lisse muet, Premi?re ?dition, rare, de cet important ouvrage dans lequel Arbrogast, professeur de math?matiques ? l'?cole royale d'Artillerie de Strasbourg, r?pond ? la question pos?e par l'Acad?mie de Saint-P?tersbourg ? propos des fonctions arbitraires, ? l'occasion d'un concours de math?matiques pures lanc? en 1787, dont les termes exacts ?taient : d?terminer si les fonctions arbitraires, auxquelles on parvient par l'int?gration des ?quations ? trois ou plusieurs variables repr?sentent des courbes ou des surfaces quelconques, soit alg?briques ou transcendantes, soit m?caniques, discontinues, ou produites par un mouvement volontaire de la main ; ou si ces fonctions renferment seulement des courbes continues repr?sent?es par une ?quation alg?brique ou transcendante ? 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 ? (DSB). Antoine Arbogast, (1759-1803), exer?a plusieurs ann?es aupr?s du Conseil souvera … [Click Below for Full Description]
