A General History of Quadrupeds
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) and History of British Birds: Land Birds (1797) were drafted … [Click Below for Full Description]

Wakefield first published a volume of "those parts only of the New Testament which are wrongly translated in our common version" before having this complete Testament printed in 1791.

The 'Sanction' Leaf is a separate imprint, recorded as such by Bristol and by Shipton & Mooney. It is rare, with NAIP recording a holding only at the Huntington Library. AAS does not own it. The Preface explains the need for a book adapted "to the meridian of our own Lodges." Thus this work, "a code of Laws for the government of the Grand Lodge, and all the Lodges on its dependancy," as well as "an Epitome of ancient history" recounting the story of Freemasonry. How the book came to be written is recounted in IV Gould's Library of Freemasonry, pages 363- 364 [1906].Evans 23727 [main entry].

London: Henry Baldwin / Charles Dilly, 1791. Condition: Both volumes Very Good plus, with moderate foxing throughout, light shelfwear, and a few tiny closed tears and creases. First Edition. Quarto, two volumes. With stamps from the Kansas City, MO Public Library on the first page of text of each volume, but otherwise without the usual condition issues associated with ex-libris copies. Second state, volume one with corrected spelling (p. 135: "give" for "gve" and those stated by Pottle not mentioned in the "corrections") and cancels (pp. 271-274); volume two with misnumbered pages (pp. 229, 408, 497, 504, 555, 585, 586) and cancels (pp. 29, 301), as well as hyphens (p. 288) and typographical errors (pp. 78, 92, 275, 352, 562). All plates present, including the frontispiece. A few leaf stubs are present, but not placed at the correct cancels. Contemporary re-backed full calf, seven spine compartments, one in green and one in red, with gilt titles and designs, original endpapers, all page edges cut. A monument to biography. Boswell was already a prolific author by the time of publication, but "The Life" propelled him to even higher levels of recognition. Boswell and Johnson were acquainted for a while, having met, coincidentally, in a book store. But in 1784 Johnson died, seven years before his life went into print. Pottle 79, 1967.

James Boswell
London: Henry Baldwin for Charles Dilly, 1791. First edition, second state with "give" reading on p. 135 in vol. I, 2 volumes, 4to, pp. xii, [16], 516; [2], 588; engraved portrait frontispiece by Heath after Joshua Reynolds, and with the Round Robin plate, and the plate showing facsimile signatures of Johnson,; very nice copy in contemporary full calf, gilt-decorated spines in 6 compartments, red and black morocco labels in 2. All the standard cancels are present, per Pottle. Regarding the "give" (versus "gve") reading, Pottle notes that the "booksellers have given this rarther uninteresting 'point' more attention tha it deserves." 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 the heroic poets, Shakespeare is not more decidedly the first of the dramatists, Demosthenes is not more decidedly the first of the orators, than Boswell is the first of biographers" (Macaulay).

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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

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]

[ALEXANDER HAMILTON]
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, 1791. Contrasting with the agrarian view of many Virginia founding fathers, New Yorker Alexander Hamilton saw an industrial future for the United States. After nearly two years of study and with the aid of Assistant Secretary Tench Coxe, Secretary of the Treasury Hamilton compiled his famed Report on Manufactures at the request of Congress. With the Society for Establishing Useful Manufactures, Coxe and Hamilton advocate creating the nation's first public-private partnership to develop the area around the Great Falls of the Passaic River, using the cataract for power. [ALEXANDER HAMILTON].Newspaper. Gazette of the United States, September 10, 1791. Philadelphia, Pennsylvania: John Fenno. 4 pp., 10 x 16 in. The prospectus is printed on the front page in three columns.Historical BackgroundThe Society for Establishing Useful Manufactures (S.U.M.) was a public-private partnership to industrialize the area around the Great Falls of the Passaic River. By utilizing the falls' water power, Hamilton envisioned a planned industrial community that would promote his industrial vision for the United States.Although no manuscript of the prospectus of the Society in Hamilton's handwriting has been found, scholars have generally attributed primary authorship to him.Chartered by New Jersey Governor William Paterson in 1791, S.U.M. was exempt from property taxes for a decade. Washington, D.C. designer Pierre L'Enfant had grand designs for the races and sluiceways to harness the waterpower, but he was soon replaced by the more pragmatic Peter … [Click Below for Full Description]

Pendleton, Edmund
[N.p.], 1791. [1]p., addressed on verso. Light toning, old fold lines. Later pencil notations. Very good. Brief note written by Edmund Pendleton, Virginia lawyer and Revolutionary patriot, to one Francis Walker. Edmund Pendleton served as a representative to the First Continental Congress, was president of both of Virginia's revolutionary conventions in 1775, and was also president of the powerful Committee of Safety for the state. Only an injury sustained in a fall from a horse (to which he refers in this letter) kept him from being in the Second Congress and a signer of the Declaration. He was elected president of the Virginia convention again in 1776, and under his direction, Virginia's delegates to the Continental Congress put forth a motion for independence from Britain. Following Independence, he helped revise Virginia's own Constitution, and worked tirelessly on behalf of the judicial system, serving as a chief justice in Virginia's courts. Finally, he presided as president of Virginia's Ratifying Convention for the Constitution in 1788. William Preston was a political and military leader on the Virginia frontier. During the Revolution he organized Virginia's frontier defenses, and personally organized and led a group of militiamen who fought at the Battle of Guilford Courthouse in North Carolina. He writes: "My wife having this morning found my memo. book, there is an entry in May 1777, corresponding with that of my nephew respecting Mr. Jones's money received of your father and a subsequent entry a few lines from that is 'June 2d Richard Jones Dr. Cash to h … [Click Below for Full Description]

Fleurieu, Charles Pierre Claret]
Printed for John Stockdale, London, 1791. xxiv,323,[1]pp. plus nine folding maps, two folding views, and folding plate. Half title. Quarto. 20th-century three-quarter calf and marbled boards, spine gilt with raised bands, black morocco label. Very good. Provenance: J. T. Sureune (signature dated 1837 on endpaper); Thomas Gill (bookplate on the front pastedown). First English edition, following the French edition of the previous year. Writing during a period of intense international rivalry over discoveries in the Pacific, Fleurieu (a French politician and scientist) promotes the discoveries of Bougainville and Jean de Surville at the expense of British claims, though he does acknowledge some of Capt. Cook's discoveries. To bolster his claims for the French, Fleurieu uses unpublished manuscripts as well as the printed accounts of several Spanish and British navigators. An appendix prints Buache's "Extract from a memoir concerning the existence and situation of Solomon's Islands." The twelve folding maps and plates relate to New Guinea and the Solomon Islands. "The maps are interesting, since they were based both on actual discoveries and on Fleurieu's theories. When d'Entrecasteaux returned from his fruitless search for La Pérouse, he confirmed that Fleurieu's theories appeared to be generally correct" - Hill. HILL 611. BEDDIE 1302. FERGUSON 105. SABIN 24749. COX II:304.

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.

[ Paris, 1791. 3pp. Quarto. Modern half calf and cloth. Signed in contemporary manuscript hand at end of text. Very good. A landmark document in Franco-American relations. Here the French Republic extends a friendly hand to all democracies, but especially the United States and the Swiss Cantons, and announces its policy of amity and alliance with those two republics. The early friendship of the Republic and the U.S. was not to last. Within a few years the question of American neutrality in the conflict between France and England split the two.

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]

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]

Giovanni Maria CASSINI (1745 - 1824)
1791. "Grande carta, murale, composta da quattro fogli uniti, tratta dal ""Nuovo Atlante Geografico Universale delineato sulle ultime osservazioni"", edito a Roma dal 1792 fino al 1801, opera che la Calcografia Camerale commissionò al Cassini al fine di sostituire l'ormai obsoleto ""Mercurio Geografico"". Giovanni Maria Cassini, Chierico Regolare Somasco fu geografo e cartografo, ma anche intagliatore di architetture e prospettive - uno dei migliori discepoli di Giovanni Battista Piranesi - Cassini fu uno degli ultimi sferografi italiani del Settecento ed i suoi globi ebbero una notevole diffusione, come pure questo ""Nuovo Atlante Geografico"". Incisione in rame, finemente colorata nei contorni, in ottimo stato di conservazione." Big wall map, made of four sheets, from the 'Nuovo Atlante Geografico Universale', with a decorative title cartouche, by Giovanni Maria Cassini, a Somasco monk. He was geographer and cartographer but he was also good at engraving architectural items and perspectives - he was one of the best disciples Giovanni Battista Piranesi had. Moreover, Cassini was one of the last artists to engrave spheres in the XVIII century and his globes were quite famous and widespread, and realized the most important Italian Atlas of the XVIII century; his maps always bear a cartouche, extremely rich in colours and details. Copperplate with fine later hand colour, in very good condition. Z. Davoli - R. Sanfelici - S. Zanasi ,"Terre di Langobardia", sch. 79.

With folded plate to Postscript part I facing p. 161 and large folding table, "Table to Panopticon", to Postscript part II. Engraved armorial bookplate of Corbet Corbet and Richard Corbet to front pastedown of each volume. Corners professionally restored, small section torn from front free endpaper of vol. II. Complete with the 8-page preface to the first vol., but without the 3 engraved plates as usual; overall a very good set, attractively bound. First London edition of all three parts of Bentham's famous but abortive Panopticon Penitentiary Scheme. Both the second Postscript and the plates were delayed in being printed and "very few copies of either the London or the Dublin editions have all the engravings According to Bentham, most of the plates were destroyed in a fire at the printer's before publication and the book appeared without them The large folding table designed as an index to the work was not printed until the end of August, three months after the publication of the London edition" (Chuo). It is present here, at the end of part II of the Postscript.

Pale dampmark to upper margin of the final few leaves; without the terminal blank leaf. An excellent copy. Collation: [2, title, verso blank], [2, table of contents, verso blank], pp. 122 [B-Q4, R1] First edition, first issue of the Panopticon, corrected and annotated in Bentham's hand. "The Dublin edition has not been recorded in any bibliography, although it is known to have been printed" (Chuo).

As well as consisting of the Letters only (not the Postscripts or the plates), and as well as bearing more than 30 manuscript corrections, this issue comes without a preface: an early state. Bentham's wholehearted commitment to the Panopticon project extended across decades. The idea of a specific design for an effective detention centre sprang from his brother Samuel's involvement in the establishment of a modern, planned manufacturing town in Prince Potemkin's estate in Krichev, Russia. Samuel's town planning aimed at ensuring that workers remained under scrutiny at every step in the production process. Inspired by this concept, and convinced that it would revolutionize the maintenance of prisons, Jeremy began outlining his Panopticon in a series of Letters to his father from 1786. On his return in Britain, he contemplated proposing the scheme to William Pitt and wrote him … [Click Below for Full Description]

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.

Rousseau, Jean Jacques [1712 - 1778]
London: Printed for G. G. J. and J. Robinson, 1791. 1st edition thus, i.e., by this publisher, and one of 3 editions issued in 1791. Cf. PMM 207, for the 1762 first edition. Later tan half-calf binding with pale green cloth boards. Blue speckled edges. Spine sunned, a few spots otherwise VG+.. [8], 387, [1 (blank)] pp. 8vo. 7" x 4-1/4" "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."
