HOMER
London: Printed for J. Johnson..., 1791. FIRST EDITION OF THIS TRANSLATION. 2 volumes. 4to, 293 x 224 mms., pp. xvii [xviii blank, xix - xxvi list of subscribers, xxvii Errata, xxviii blank], 658;[iv], 483 [484 blank], contemporary calf, red leather labels; joints cracked with rear joint of volume 2 tender, other general wear to binding, with various nicks and scratches but a goodish copy, with the bookplate of Alfred A. Johnston on the front paste-down end-paper of each volume. Cowper (1731 - 1800) spent six years preparing this translation, because he had found Pope's translation to be unfaithful to the original. He worked steadily at his task translating 40 lines a day, and by 13 January 1786, he had completed a draft of the Iliad. Interrupted by llness and other distractions, he was unable to continue his work until 1787, and he sent his completed manuscript to Johnson in September, 1790. Johnson paid him £1000 for the translation. Reviews were mixed. John Parsons in The Monthly Review was displeased with Cowper's "passive and unlimited obedience to his author," adding that th "giant strength of Homer" was somtimes subverted by the "feebleness of a pygmy." The Monthly Review, or at least its reviewer, revised that opinion in 1797, when it reviewed Gilbert Wakefield's edition of Pope's Home, stating that Cowper's translation had "superiority over all its predecessors." Russell 276.

Printed for Henry Baldwin, London, 1791. xii,[16],516;588[i.e.586],[1]pp. Two volumes. Quarto. Contemporary speckled calf, rebacked and recornered at a later date to a semblance of style, gilt labels. Portrait. Facsimile and plate. 19th century ink name ("Walter Fletcher") on endsheets and effaced from margin of titles, edges rubbed, endsheets creased, some soiling to verso of portrait, clean tear in R4 (vol. I) with no loss, some occasional pencil annotations. but a sound set. First edition, uncorrected state of I:135:10 ('gve'), with the complement of cancels outlined by Pottle, as usual. In volume two, pages 78, 92, 275 and 352 are in their first, uncorrected states. Frequently remarked upon as one of the triumphs of the art of biography in the English language. Each volume bears the bookplate of Jonathan Boucher (1737-1804), Anglican clergyman, and for a period beginning in 1759, a prominent figure in the colonies and intimate of George Washington. However, his staunch loyalist sympathies caused him to return to England in 1775, where he occupied himself with various matters, including, for fourteen years, an unfinished "Glossary of Archaic and Provincial Words," intended to supplement Johnson's Dictionary. After his death a preliminary section was published, but the remainder of his work was turned over to the proprietors of Webster's English Dictionary. ROTHSCHILD 463. POTTLE 79. GROLIER ENGLISH HUNDRED 65. ESTC T64481. [Attributes: First Edition]

Paris: Chez F. Buisson, 1791, 1792. First Editions in French. Volume one of this set was printed in May, 1791, three months after the first edition was printed in London. That first edition was immediately suppressed and most of the copies were destroyed. Later London editions were edited and controversial parts of the original text were omitted. This French translation has the complete original text of the suppressed first edition and was not edited. Volume one contains a new preface by Thomas Paine, specifically for this French edition. "Government exists, Paine said, to quarantee to the individual that portion of his natural rights of which unaided he could not ensure himself. These rights, with respect to which all men are equal, are liberty, property, security, and resistance to oppression...Part II contains...numerous proposals for social legislation which show that Paine was not unaware of the class struggle....(The Rights of Man) was suppressed by Pitt's government, and its author, safe for the moment in France, was tried for treason and outlawed in December, 1792."

Cruikshank, Isaac
London: H. Humphreis [sic], 1791. Handcolored etching, 14 x 21 inches. Cropped within plate borders, with no loss to image or text. Remnants of older paper pasted to verso. Color bright and fresh. Near fine. In 1789 and 1790 Nootka Sound, in the Pacific Northwest, looked to be the spur of a major conflict between then kingdoms of Britain and Spain. The inlet was an important outpost for maritime fur trading and had therefore become the focus of the centuries-old struggle for advantage in the New World. Courtesy of explorer and trader John Meares, news of Spanish indiscretions reached Britain in 1790 and intensified the growing anti-Spanish rhetoric and call for war. Meares (whose credibility was famously contested in two remarkable pamphlets by George Dixon) claimed not only that the Spanish had seized British ships, but that they had removed his settlement at Nootka and replaced it with their own. After debate in the House of Commons, it was decided that the British Navy would be mobilized. While Spain initially sought to go to war, they could not attain the essential support of France and thus required a diplomatic solution to the problem. This came in the form of the first Nootka Convention, which was signed on Oct. 28, 1790. The convention guaranteed Britain the right to have outposts on Nootka Sound and to practice whaling in waters beyond the "Ten-League Line" off the coast. The Convention eventually resulted in the seminal voyage of George Vancouver to survey the Pacific Northwest. This print is a satire on the British Tory government's handling of the crisis … [Click Below for Full Description]
