Burke, Edmund
Re-printed by Hugh Gaine, London: printed: New York, 1791. [4],196pp. Octavo. Extracted from bound volume. Some inevitable scattered foxing and tanning, some occasional neat early ink marginalia and commentary, two early ink ownership signatures on title (one crossed through), but a good copy, the fore-edges largely untrimmed. First American edition of Burke's spirited fusillade against the revolutionary fervor across the channel, described by PMM as "one of the most brilliant of all polemics." The second owner was at distinct disagreement with some of the opinions of the first: on page 106, the first owner has written, in part: "This sentence, though too long, is a very fine one." The second owner has neatly crossed through those comments, and responded simply "fudge." PRINTING AND THE MIND OF MAN 239. TODD 53ff. EVANS 23238. ESTC W36398.

BARTRAM, William
Philadelphia, 1791. With frontispiece portrait, folding map of East Florida and 7 engraved plates (1 folding). Contemporary calf, rebacked; soiling and browning pretty much throughout, due especially to the paper stock. Small book label of Lewis H. Weiss plus ownership signature of John Greimer dated 1792 on title and small ownership signature of Ettling on the paste-down. Preserved in a folding slipcase. First edition of this classic work on American exploration with memorable material on southern Indian tribes. Due to its lyrical narrative, Bartram's Travels influenced many eighteenth- and nineteenth-century authors both in Great Britain and the United States, including Samuel Taylor Coleridge, William Wordsworth, and Ralph Waldo Emerson. Combining an account of the author's travels and his natural history observations of the southeastern United States, this work is noted by Sabin as "unequalled for the vivid picturesqueness of its descriptions of nature, scenery, and productions." Based on five years of study in the Carolinas, Georgia, and Florida, Bartram's work includes significant commentary on the Cherokee and Creek Indian tribes as well as descriptions of the flora, fauna, and geography of the region. In fact, had it not been for considerable publication delays (not the least of which was due to the American Revolution), Bartram would have been recognized as having discovered a number of species; nevertheless, this book secured his reputation and influenced a wide range of thinkers from the scientific community to writers like Henry David Thoreau.

The measurement of the facial angle, was one of the first measurements to be made in physical anthropology. Camper was initially concerned with the correct drawing of the human face and he determined that classical statues were modelled on an angle of 95-100°, while modern Europeans had an angle of 90°, 'Orientals' 80°, Negroes 70° and orangutans 58°. He noted that Africans were the furthest removed from the Classical ideals of beauty, but believed that all races evolved from a common ancestor and he was opposed to slavery. It was only later that his results were taken up by overtly racist scientists. Camper developed and discussed his method of facial … [Click Below for Full Description]

Some blank edgewear to title page. Archivally repaired closed tear at pp. 91-92 [no loss]. viii, 504pp. Else Very Good. "Collected works of an influential political economist of the period who was often consulted by members of Congress on finance and taxation" [Howes]. The book "presents the reasoning which governed the states in their fluctuating finance from 1776 to the adoption of the Constitution. The author is a very severe critic of the issue of paper money, although he admits that some of the disastrous consequences which he anticipated were not realized. He covers the topics of taxation and paper money," with discussion of "the nature of the political union of the thirteen states, the establishment of the national capital in which the author favors Philadelphia." Webster argues "in favor of the adoption of the constitution," and he gives "a short history of the Bank of North America. The last essay treats of the extent and value of the western unlocated lands. In the appendix are given four scales of appreciation of Continental money by months." [Larned]. FIRST EDITION.

"Collected works of an influential political economist of the period who was often consulted by members of Congress on finance and taxation" [Howes]. The book "presents the reasoning which governed the states in their fluctuating finance from 1776 to the adoption of the Constitution. The author is a very severe critic of the issue of paper money, although he admits that some of the disastrous consequences which he anticipated were not realized. He covers the topics of taxation and paper money," with discussion of "the nature of the political union of the thirteen states, the establishment of the national capital in which the author favors Philadelphia." Webster argues "in favor of the adoption of the constitution," and he gives "a short history of the Bank of North America. The last essay treats of the extent and value of the western unlocated lands. In the appendix are given four scales of appreciation of Continental money by months..." [Larned]. FIRST EDITION. Howes W211. Evans 23972. Larned 2904. Kress 2235.

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. No binding. Fine. The American Museum, or Universal Magazine. Pamphlet. The American Museum, or Universal Magazine, for June 1791. Philadelphia, PA: Matthew Carey. Final issue of vol 9. Disbound. Including Moses Seixas' letter to President Washington on behalf of the Newport congregation (based in Touro Synagogue, the oldest synagogue still standing in America). The Seixas letter appears on p. 40 of Appendix II. 192? pp. 8 1/4 x 5 in. 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.

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>
