(FRENCH REVOLUTION). MACKINTOSH, JAMES
London: Printed for G. G. J. and J. Robinson, 1791. Third Edition, with additions . Hardcover. 210 x 133 mm (8 1/4 x 5 1/4"). 2 p.l., xiii, [2], 16-*205, [1], 203-342 [i.e., 378] pp. (p. 378 misnumbered "342"). Third Edition, with additions. Excellent contemporary speckled half calf over marbled boards, flat spine pleasingly gilt in compartments with urn and garland centerpiece and floral spray cornerpieces, red morocco label. Front pastedown with armorial bookplate of Sir Henry Paston-Bedingfeld, Bart. ESTC T-58807. Paper on the covers a bit faded as well as chafed and abraded, isolated mild foxing, one page with small marginal stain, but AN ESPECIALLY FINE COPY, the text unusually clean, fresh, and bright, and in a remarkably well-preserved contemporary binding. This is a virtually unused copy, in an inexpensive period binding, of an important rebuttal to Edmond Burke's "Reflections on the Revolution in France." Burke feared revolution within Britain and railed against any support whatsoever for the cause of the French rebels. In the present measured response, Mackintosh, a whig and a member of the Holland House circle, skillfully shows the weakness of Burke's analysis and evidence, at the same time arguing for reforms in Britain that would preclude the need for any rebellion. While a lifelong proponent of democratic reform, Mackintosh was understandably horrified by the excesses of the Reign of Terror and was reconciled to Burke before the latter's death.

BAGGESEN, JENS:
2 bd. Kbhvn.: J. F. Schultz 1791. [16] + 248; [16] + 232 s. Eksemplar med svage brugsspor indbundet i ét samtidigt halvlæderbind med rygforgyldning. Indlagt i smuk bogæske af gedeskind, signeret Harry Larsen. Bageste friblad med samtidig tilskrift.. Fraktureksemplar på skrivepapir. Ifølge en tilskrift på bagsiden af titelbladet har forfatteren givet eksemplaret til C. M. Baggesen, Kiøbenhavn d. 30 September 1811. Forneden på titelbladet har Jens Baggesen selv skrevet en oversættelse af bogens latinske motto og på fire steder - side 1, 5, 6 og 20 - har han tilføjet nogle oplysende noter. Det har ikke været muligt at få opklaret hvem denne C. M. Baggesen er. Ingen af digterens søskende bærer navne med disse bogstaver. Af dateringen fremgår, at bogen er givet i den periode, da Baggesen var professor i Kiel, men jævnligt opholdt sig i København. Har senere tilhørt Martin Hammerich. Plesner 71. Bibl. Danica IV,211

[St. Domingue]:
[N.p., but Paris July 26, 1791].. 2pp. plus integral blank. Quarto, on a folded folio sheet. Lightly dampstained in margins. Some light wear. Good. The text of a letter sent by the Commissaires Conciliateurs a Saint Domingue to M. Thevenard, Minister of the Marine, and their letter to the president of the National Assembly transmitting that letter. The Commissaires to Saint Domingue address the issue of the impending French Consitution and its impact on their mission to the colony. With the rise of the French Revolution came colonial collapse and eventual revolution in the colony of Saint Domingue. The French Revolutionary Government tried to maintain a hold on the colony, made difficult by distance. Mere weeks after this letter was written, the slave revolt in Saint Domingue left thousands of white French colonists dead and the island in turmoil. The signatories to the letter (signed in type) are Guillot, d'Herisson, and Delahuproye.

The immense task of compiling the thousands of notes Boswell had recorded on "the great man's talk, habits and opinions" was begun after Johnson's death in 1784. Made up of trifling incidents as well as the significant events in Johnson's life, the work remains a masterpiece of portraiture. "Homer is not more decidedly the first of heroic poets, Shakespeare is not more decidedly the first of dramatists, Demosthenes is not more decidedly the first of orators, than Boswell is the first of biographers" (Macaulay).

GÜTLE, JOHANN CONRAD
Leipzig und Jena: bei Adam Gottlieb Schneider, 1791. FIRST EDITION. If there had been infomercials in 1800, the Nuremberg polymath Johann Gütle (1747-1827) would have been actively involved in this kind of promotion. Self taught in physics and mathematics, Gütle was an active entrepreneur who fabricated and sold everything from etched glass to cleaning and beautifying products (among them hair restorer and coloring) to lightning rods--including the first one in his home town. He wrote more than two dozen books dealing with, among other things, mechanics, electricity, surveying, and magic. He ran an active distribution center for his books and products, and he was a travelling showman whose efforts to succeed in retailing had a component of entertainment--a significant fraction of his writings dealing with the diverting amusement of magic tricks. Despite evidence that he could justifiably be labeled a huckster, he was also a talented and versatile handworker mentioned by contemporaries as an important artisan and author (the poet Jean Paul, for example, alludes, with pleasure, to the use of his hair dye), and he made serious efforts to contribute to the scientific betterment of daily life. Chief among his accomplishments was the construction of the original Nuremberg lightning rod, which brought him considerable acclaim.

[Fregatten Venus.]
Stockholm, Carl Gust. Cronland, 1791. 4:o. 78 s. Liten fläck på första och sista sidan. Tagen ur band. Ur Ericsbergs bibliotek. Setterwall 3344. Bring, Rättegångshandlingar, 726:2. Ärendet var först uppe i regementskrigsrätten för att sedan avgöras i krigshovrätten. Fregatten Venus, byggd av Chapman 1783, befann sig i juni 1789 utanför norska kusten under befäl av kapten Hanson. De råkade där ut för en rysk eskader som öppnade eld, och efter en stunds strid måste Hanson och hans män kapitulera, och Venus togs av ryssarna. Efter att tillbringat en tid i rysk fångenskap kom Hanson 1791 hem och ställdes inför domstol för förlusten av fartyget. Han bedömdes dock inte ha handlat brottsligt utan endast slarvigt, och dömdes till böter motsvarande en halv årslön.
