PAINE, Thomas
Paris: Chez F. Buisson, 1791. Reunissant les Principes et la Pratique. 2 volumes. 8vo, modern 3/4 blue cloth with marbled boards and red morocco spine labels, cloth lightly soiled on both volumes, corners lightly bumped on volume II, scattered light foxing in both volumes, mostly to margins, pp. 179-224 of volume II with thin dampstaining to upper right margins, contemporary ownership signature on margin of title-page of volume I. 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." Dictionary of American Biography XIV, pages 161-162. Complete pagination i … [Click Below for Full Description]

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]

Les deux ouvrages sont très dissemblables puisque le premier titre est de Mirabeau, qui fut un partisan de la Révolution, contrairement à Sénac de Meilhan, l'auteur du second titre. Talleyrand assista Mirabeau dans ses derniers instants, on a ajouté au début du volume la reproduction d'une aquarelle "Talleyrand au chevet de Mirabeau mourant", issue des collections du château de Rochecotte, qui appartint à la nièce du prince. Mirabeau mourut le 2 avril 1791, à l'âge de quarante deux ans. Quelque temps après sa mort, son ami le médecin Cabanis, qui l'avait soigné dans sa dernière maladie, publia quatre discours que le grand orateur s'était proposé de prononcer à l'Assemblée constituante sur la … [Click Below for Full Description]

Camden, William (after); James Basire [engraver]
London: Society of Antiquaries, 1791. First Edition. Hardcover. Very Good. Minor shelf/edge wear, remnant of label (dated 1891) affixed to verso of the first panel, occasional paper flaws and irregularities to panorama, sporadic foxing, minor abrasion to front pastedown, else bright and clean. Half bound, black leather spine and tips, blue pebbled cloth boards, gilt lettering and decorative elements, marbled front pastedown. Oblong 8vo. np. Illus. (colored plate) Custom folder holding folding panorama, engraved plates joined on versos to form continuous view: 9 and 3/8 inches by nearly 29 feet. Spectacular hand-colored panorama of the funeral procession of Queen Elizabeth I in April 1603, reproducing drawings in the British Museum ascribed to Elizabeth's biographer William Camden, who appeared in the procession in his official role as Clarenceaux King of Arms. Other mourners of note include Robert Cecil, Thomas Egerton, and Walter Raleigh. At the time of her death, most Englishmen had known no monarch but Elizabeth, as the elaborate formal procession detailed here was swelled by thousands of Londoners. This engraved copy of Camden's original drawings was produced in 1791 for the Society of Antiquaries, appearing in the third volume of "Vetusta Monumenta"; the panorama has been almost entirely colored in an early hand. Left uncolored, strikingly, is the effigy of the queen mounted upon her coffin, a likeness so startling that the London crowd gasped to see it. It is presumed it was left uncolored to reflect the virtue of the Virgin Queen. An exemplary recording of one … [Click Below for Full Description]
