[Fleurieu, Charles Pierre Claret]:
London: Printed for John Stockdale, 1791.. xxiv,323,[1]pp. plus nine folding maps, two folding views, and a folding plate. Lacks the half title. Quarto. Modern three-quarter speckled calf and marbled boards, spine richly gilt, gilt morocco label. Offsetting from the maps, some slight age toning, but a handsome, very good copy. 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 Captain 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 To bolster his claims for the French, Fleurieu uses unpublished manuscripts, as well as the printed accounts of several Spanish and British navigators.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 Perouse, he confirmed that Fleurieu's theories appeared to be generally correct" - Hill. HILL 611. BEDDIE 1302. FERGUSON 105.

[Canada]
Quebec: Samuel Nielson, 1791. [with:] SUPPLEMENT...Num. 1333. [with:] SUPPLEMENT... Num. 1334. [with:] SUPPLEMENT...Num. 1335. Folio. Printed in double-column format in parallel English and French. Slightly ragged on left margin, else very good. This extraordinary series of supplements to the QUEBEC GAZETTE demonstrates the extent to which feeling for the French Revolution had permeated the French population of Canada, and the degree to which the British government was prepared to tolerate the expression of such Revolutionary sentiments. Most of the text of each issue (all of the first two and part of the third and fourth) is devoted to a long "Scheme of a Constitution," extracted from a late French publication entitled "Les Actes des Apotres." While recognizing monarchy as the necessary executive branch, the text calls for a balance of power between the courts, legislatures, and executive. A surprising and interesting series to find published in Canada at this time, in the same year that the Constitutional Act granted the first representative government to Canada. Not listed separately by Tremaine, nor are supplements recorded in the appendix devoted to the ...GAZETTE; however, she notes two runs which include "almost all" of the supplements.

"Peter, Pieter, or usually Petrus Camper (1722 - 1789), Dutch physician, anatomist, physiologist, midwife, zoologist, anthropologist, paleontologist and naturalist. He studied the orangutan, the rhinoceros, and the skull of a mosasaur, which he believed was a whale. One of the first to interest himself in comparative anatomy and paleontology, he also invented the measure of the facial angle. Camper was not a dull professor in his library, becoming a celebrity in Europe and a member of the Royal Society. Starting in 1755, he resided in Amsterdam where he occupied a chair of anatomy and surgery at the Athenaeum Illustre, later completed by a medicine chair. In 1763 he chose to accept the chair of anatomy, surgery and botanics at the University of Groningen. Both in Amst … [Click Below for Full Description]

"The Disquisition falls into two main parts: the first two-thirds is a narrative of the commercial contacts India had with the outside world from ancient times to the sixteenth century; the remainder is a long appendix describing Indian culture.
