SINCLAIR, Sir John
London: T. Cadell. 8vo., iv + 46 + (2)pp., with the final advertisement leaf, well bound in old-style quarter calf gilt. A fine copy. A valuable paper by Sinclair, at the time Chairman of the Society, reminding the members of the important goals they were aiming at. He acknowledged that much research remained to be done, including studies on the relationship of food and fine wool, the effect of shelter and fleece quality, the contribution of salt to the fineness of the pile, undertaking two shearings a year, and cross breeding. 'It is only by trying every experiment that is likely to be useful, and collecting facts from every quarter, that any system . can be brought to perfection'. Sinclair, as President of a special committee of the Highland Society, had himself been investigating the comparative merits of the wool of different breeds of sheep, and especially of the Shetland flocks. He went further, and inaugurated the British Wool Society at a grand sheep-shearing festival held on 1 July 1791 at Newhalls Inn, Queensferry. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

PIRANESI, Giovanni Battista.
1791. Etching. Overall size: 70.5cm by 48.8cm. Best known for his representations of on the archaeological reconstructions of ruins and the documentation of contemporary Rome, Piranesi also made a fundamental contribution to the development of the decorative arts. The "Vasi" is one of the most important of his works related to his own interests as a restorer and dealer in antiquities, and which had a great influence on interior decoration, and industrial production of ceramics, etc. This was an aspect of Piranesi's work on which he relied more extensively after the death of his major patron, Clement XIII Rezzonico. Many of the plates illustrate objects made of ancient Roman marbles that could be inspected at his Museo in the Palazzo Tomati where his engraving business and his home were both located. The integration of ancient sculptural fragments into his restored objects allowed for flights of fancy that were very influential on younger architects such as Percier and Fontaine, who made there mark as architects for Napoleon. The plates were issued as individual plates from 1768, first appearing in bound form in 1778 as 'Vasi Candelabri Cippi Sarcofagi', probably compiled by Francesco Piranesi following his father's death. This set comprises Vasi antichi di marmo, Vaso inerario, Vasi Signor Corbet and Vasi Carmathen.

Importante legatura coeva italiana di gusto neoclassico in tutto marocchino verde firmata "Petronio Bolognese" e datata 1813, con ai piatti un grande festone ovale in oro circondato da greche eseguite con diversi ferri. Al dorso, tre tasselli in marocchino rosso con titoli in oro per ciascun volume, intervallati da altri fregi geometrici; merletto interno (qualche spelatura abilmente restaurata). Il terzo volume, uscito trent'anni dopo, presenta una legatura coeva in mezzo marocchino verde e carta uso marocchino ai piatti. Al dorso 2 tasselli e fregi in oro. La decorazione richiama chiaramente quella degli altri due volumi e bisogna dunque ritenere che questo terzo volume sia stato abbinato sin dall'origine agli altri. Ottimo esemplare grande di margini con carta bianca e distinta, praticamente privo delle consuete fioriture e assolutamente genuino. Magnifico esemplare - in legatura neoclassica coeva firmata, in tutto marocchino - della prima rara edizione di questo fondamentale studio sui molluschi e sulle conchiglie siciliani, di Giuseppe Saverio Poli, universalmente riconosciuto come il padre della malacologia. I volumi sono elegantemente stampati da Bodoni con numerose vignette, alcune raffiguranti il golfo di Napoli, e illustrati complessivamente da 114 tavole incise in rame (met.. … [Click Below for Full Description]

Edinburgh Creech -1799, 1791. First edition. 21 volumes, 8vo, 7 engraved plates, 4 folding, engraved map, 4 folding tables, half-titles. (2 folding plates very browned, a little foxing.) Contemporary sprinkled calf, red labels on spine, neat repairs to joints and extremities as required, a very good set. Pioneering work on statistics. "In 1790, as an elder in the general assembly of the Church of Scotland,Sir John Sinclair (1754-1835) launched the idea of a survey of the state of the country, which was to become the twenty-one volumes of the Statistical Account of Scotland. It is a detailed account of the geography, history, economy, and society of every parish. He had gathered the word 'statistical' from Germany on his northern tour. He used it to mean information which was desirable for legislative purposes, though not necessarily numerical in form. 'Statistics', he said, 'should reveal the quantum of happiness in a population', as well as 'the means of further improvement'. He saw the proper function of government as intervention or legislative action to promote welfare and economic growth, and recognized that detailed information was necessary for such intervention to be effective. He was not the first to move towards the collecting of detailed local information. In particular, for Scotland Sir Robert Sibbald had made various county reports; Sir James Steuart had recommended such action. Alexander Webster's Scottish census of 1755 was an interpretation of the same idea, as were Macfarlane's Geographical Collections of the early eighteenth century. There were the various … [Click Below for Full Description]

Text in Hebrew and Yiddish. One free endpaper is inscribed and one has been removed. A few pages in the book cut close. A copy of the wedding certificate is included in the box. A fine example of elaborately decorated Siddur, containing all year prayers bound together with the book of Pslams and Techinot – special prayers for women. The Siddur was presented as a wedding gift to Blanche Rebecca Adler, the granddaughter of Chief Rabbi of Britain, on the occasion of her marriage to Raphael Hayem Ernst May, July 22nd 1891. Nathan Marcus Adler was the Chief Rabbi of the British Empire between 1845 and 1890. The wedding ceremony was held at the Bayswater Synagogue in the Parish of Paddington, London, and was performed by the bride's uncle, Rabbi Hermann Adler, who became the Chief Rabbi after his brother's retirement and held this post between the years 1891 and 1911. Presenting a bride with a Siddur on the occasion of her marriage was an established custom. The binding and the box of the Siddur were made in 1891 for the occasion. The inscription on the box reads "16 Thamus 5651" - the Hebrew calendar date of Miss Adler's and Mr May's wedding. The prayer-book itself was printed in Amsterdam in 1791 and contains three books with separate title pages (these often appear bound together): Seder HaTephilloth – order of prayers for the whole year ac … [Click Below for Full Description]

London: Printed for A. Strahan; and T. Cadell, 1791. London: Printed for A. Strahan; and T. Cadell,, 1791. In Three Volumes. The Sixth Edition. 3 volumes, octavo (207 x 128 mm). Contemporary speckled calf, red morocco labels, spines ruled in gilt with monograms tooled in gilt to third compartments. Armorial bookplates of Henry Birkbeck to front pastedowns. Extremities rubbed and spines somewhat crackled, joints rubbed and corners a little bruised, boards lightly marked, endpapers browned from turn-ins, contents occasionally foxed and lightly browned with a few creases to corners, overall a very good set. Sixth edition, one of 2,000 copies printed, first published in 1776. "Where the political aspects of human rights had taken two centuries to explore, Smith's achievement was to bring the study of economic aspects to the same point in a single work. The Wealth of Nations is not a system, but as a provisional analysis it is completely convincing. The certainty of its criticism and its grasp of human nature have made it the first and greatest classic of modern economic thought" (PMM). The Birkbeck family were situated in Norfolk during the 18th and 19th centuries, and it is likely that the monograms to the spines, "JB", refer to a member of the same family; the names Henry and John were used regularly in each generation.

Amsterdam, Yohanan Levi Rofe and his son-in-law Baruch, 1791. Octavo (18 x 12 cm); [1], 243, 105, 144 leaves; 19th century red velvet binding with gilt metal ornaments, clasps and gilt edges, housed in an inscribed custom made box. Text in Hebrew and Yiddish.

Presenting a bride with a Siddur on the occasion of her marriage was an established custom. The binding and the box of the Siddur were made in 1891 for the occasion. The inscription on the box reads "16 Thamus 5651" - the Hebrew calendar date of Miss Adler's and Mr May's wedding.
