Phillip, A.
Hamburg, Benjamin Gottlob Hoffmann, 1791. 8vo (20.4 x 11.1 cm). [xiv], viii, [9]-264 pp., one engraved portrait as a frontispiece, one engraved title vignette, eight engraved plates and one hand-coloured folded map. Contemporary mottled half calf over marbled boards. reen moroccolabel with gilt title on the spine. Blue endpapers. Third German edition. This 1791 edition is often mistakenly described as the first German edition, but that was an abridged version, published in Leipzig in 1789, the same year as the first English edition. That was not noted by Ferguson. "This is an exceedingly important and valuable work" (Cox). Admiral Arthur Phillip (1738-1814) "was a Royal Navy officer, the first Governor of New South Wales and led the colonisation of what is now Australia and founded the British penal colony that later became the city of Sydney, Australia" (Wikipedia). The translation, by the German geographer Matthias Christian Sprengel (1746-1803) is quite good. The numbering of the pages starts in Roman numerals from I-VIII and then continues in Arabic numerals from 9 onwards. The map shows the Northeastern part Australia, New Guinea/Papua New Guinea, the Solomon Islands, New Caledonia and a part of New Zealand. A few other islands in the Solomon Sea and the Tasman Sea are also included. Boartds a bit rubbed, small hole in spine label, a few plate numbers shaved, but ample margins around the illustations. Only some very faint occasional foxing. In all a very good copy. Cox II, 314; Du Rietz, 1252; Ferguson, 113. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

M. Luckman, Coventry and J. Mathews, 18 Strand, London, 1791. 2 parts in one vol., 12mo., on laid paper, with an engraved frontispiece and 8 engraved plates, some mild age-staining (rather heavier on frontispiece and some plates), contemporary name on title; strongly and attractively bound in early nineteenth-century half roan, marbled boards tooled in gilt, back with four flat bands elaborately tooled in gilt, second compartment lettered in gilt, red sprinkled edges, a very good, firm copy in well-preserved period binding. With three pages of hymns and single-page publisher's advertisement at rear. L6 has short tear (not affecting text) and neat repair at upper margin. The work is divided into two parts as often. Burder was a Congregationalist minister [sometime active in Coventry] who began life as an engraver but subsequently played an important role in the founding of the RTS. His edition of 'The Pilgrim's Progress' (1786) is the first to be divided into chapters and was frequently reprinted. This is apparently the second Coventry printing; we have a note of an earlier (1790) version issued by Luckman & Suffield. In the earlier issue the pagination is similar but the plates include a frontispiece to each part; here the number of plates remains the same, but all are numbered for inclusion in the first part. Rare. ESTC lists only the 1786 edition.

Carington Bowles, London, 1791. This droll portrayal in mezzotint of the Greek pantheon receiving the "Anacreontic Petition," includes Zeus in the foreground, Hermes with his winged helmet and Artemis with a crescent moon atop her head, Bacchus with a cup of wine, and others. It illustrates the lyrics to the Anacreontic Song, a drinking tune that is printed below the picture., which was the theme song of the Anacreontic Society, a London gentlemen's club named after the Greek poet Anacreon, and dedicated to "wit, harmony, and the god of wine." According to the song, "To Anacreon in Heav'n where he sat in full Glee/ a few Sons of Harmony sent a Petition/ That he their Inspirer and Patron wou'd be." Generally very good with the usual light toning, wear, soiling, soft creases. To view detail, contact us.

Paine, Thomas:
Paris. 1791.. iv,113pp. Contemporary blue wrappers. Some light chipping and staining to wrappers. Scattered foxing. Very good. The first Paris edition of COMMON SENSE..., translated into French by Antoine G. Griffet de Labaume. The earliest publication of COMMON SENSE... on the Continent, at least in separate form, was an anonymous French translation published at Rotterdam in 1777; this is the next edition in French, and the first published in France. The work was written by Paine in response to the Battle of Lexington in 1775, calling not merely for a revolt against taxation, but demanding independence. Its message was no doubt as inspiring to the revolutionaries of France as it had been in America. GIMBEL CS-64. SABIN 58217. HOWES P17.

Dublin: Dublin, printed for Eliz. Lynch, Skinner-Row, and in the Four-Courts. M,DCC,XCI. [1791], 1791. Leather. Good. Description: 8vo (9¼ × 6 in): t-p. [12] p., 1 l., 336 (i.e., 343), [43] p. (Seven page numbers are doubled and placed in brackets, to accommodate new matter without deranging the index; see the "Advertisement," on b4r.) Early calf, gilt title label. · Register: 8º: a-b^4 B-Z^8 2A-D^4 2E^2. · Condition: Joints cracked, reinforced with glue, head and tail chipped, boards rubbed, label darkened, paper toned. · Comments: Dublin reprint of the fifth London edition. The first edition by Buller appeared in 1772, but it was based on an earlier work by his uncle Henry Earl of Bathurst. The book is divided into three logical parts: a discussion of the substantive law of each form of action (which forms the bulk of the book), a section on the law evidence, and a concluding section on trial procedure in general. Each cause of action is briefly defined in general terms, followed by a discussion of particular points of law and practice, which are usually illustrated by reported cases, taken from both printed and manuscript reports. Its compendious yet comprehensive coverage made it very popular, going through six London editions in the eighteenth century, as well as two Dublin and one New York edition. This is the edition found in Thomas Jefferson's library. · References: Johnson 29 (7 copies); S&M 1:335(3); Holdsworth, HEL 12:354; ESTC N17056.

Rothesay, 1791. [London]: Rothesay. G : in good condition without dust jacket. Cover rubbed. Late 19th century binding with new eps. 1791. First Edition. Red hardback tooled leather cover. 270mm x 220mm (11" x 9"). 38pp. Memorial to shew that the eldest son of the King has right by his Birth to the Principality and Great Stewardship of Scotland and is a Peer of the Kingdom by the style and Titles of Duke of Rothesay and Lord of the Isles. In 1791 James Carmichael published this tract called "A Memorial concerning the Principality of Scotland" taken from a manuscript written in the year 1752 by George Chalmers, Clerk to the Signet, immediately after the death of the Prince of Wales. The Prince of Wales, Frederick, son of George II., had died in March, 1751, and the question had arisen then whether the titles of Duke of Cornwall and of Prince of Scotland passed at his death to his son and heir (George, afterwards King George III.) or reverted to his father, the King. The first charter creating the Principality of Scotland appears to be one granted on December 10, 1404, by King Robert III. in favour of his son James, empowering him to hold the lands of the so-called Stewartry in free Regality for life. The legal arguments for the date are discussed at length by Carmichael. .

[United States Laws - First Congress]:
[Philadelphia. 1791].. Small folio broadside. Dbd. Contemporary numerical inscription in upper outer corner. Closed tear, measuring approximately 1 1/4 inches, in inner margin, not affecting text; light staining at edges; else very good. Rare official printing of a law passed by the third session of the First Congress, providing "that Andrew Brown, or any other printer, be permitted, under the direction of the Secretary of State, to collate with, and correct by the original rolls, the laws, resolutions, and treaties of the United States, to be by him printed." Andrew Brown (1744-1797) was an Irish-born American printer based in Philadelphia in the 1780s and 1790s. He originally arrived in America in 1773 as a soldier in British Army. At the outbreak of the Revolutionary War, he left the British and joined the American cause, fighting at Lexington and Bunker Hill. After the war, Brown opened a girls' school in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, and later in Philadelphia. In 1788 he took over the publication of the FEDERAL GAZETTE, which he renamed the PHILADELPHIA GAZETTE in 1793. In January 1797 a massive fire broke out in the GAZETTE offices, above which Brown lived with his family. Despite Brown's efforts to save them, his wife and three children perished, and although Brown himself was rescued by a black servant, he died from his injuries within a month. The contract authorized by the present law resulted in Brown's important 1791 printing of THE LAWS OF CONGRESS..., which included laws of all three sessions of the First Congress, together with the U.S. Constitution, A … [Click Below for Full Description]

[IBBETSON (?), After Julius Caesar (1759-1817)]
London: T. Simpson, 10 November 1791. Stipple engraving, printed in colours and finished by hand, by Robert Dodd. 11 5/8 x 14 1/2 inches. 14 3/4 x 17 5/8 inches. A dramatic image of a regency buck releasing his hounds after a hare Only the publisher is certain on this print. Siltzer records Simpson as having published a series of six plates after Ibbetson in 1790, but with the 'Coursing' plate in aquatint by Simpson himself. The remaining five are listed as being stipple engravings by Dodd. The present image is the correct size, and the engraving method is uniform with the other five by Dodd. All this suggests that this may be a proposed replacement for the earlier aquatint and should therefore be viewed as a companion piece to the other Dodd prints. Julius Cæsar Ibbetson "was apprenticed to John Fletcher, a ship-painter at Hull. Ibbetson attracted public attention by his designs for ship decoration and by some scenery painted for the Hull Theatre, and his success encouraged him to seek his fortune in London in 1777. He was forced at first to work for Mr. Clarke, a picture dealer in Leicester Fields, but was able at the same time to acquire a thorough acquaintance with the works and methods of Dutch artists, besides learning all the tricks of the trade... In 1780 he married... In 1785 he exhibited at the Royal Academy A View of Northfleet, and continued to exhibit during succeeding years. Becoming acquainted with Captain William Baillie and others, he was introduced into good society, and was patronised by the nobility. In 1788 he accepted a post in Colonel Cathcart … [Click Below for Full Description]

[United States Laws - First Congress]: [Jefferson, Thomas]:
[Philadelphia: Childs and Swaine, 1791].. Broadside, 15 x 9 1/4 inches. Docketed on verso in contemporary hands in two places. Signed in manuscript by Thomas Jefferson. Old folds, with neat expert repairs. Overall, about very good. In a cloth clamshell case, leather label. A very rare printing of an early United States law, signed in manuscript by Thomas Jefferson as Secretary of State. The document, which also carries the printed signatures of President George Washington, Vice President John Adams, and House Speaker Frederick Muhlenberg, was approved January 10, 1791. Individual acts and bills of the first Congress were routinely printed for public consumption. A provision was made, however, to print a few copies of each act on large paper for dissemination to the states, and to have each copy signed by Secretary of State Thomas Jefferson. The present copy is one of those large paper issues, bearing Jefferson's manuscript signature beside his printed title. The law described extends to the end of the next session of Congress a law respecting acts of the Maryland, Georgia, and Rhode Island legislatures. Evans and NAIP together locate five copies of the present act, at the American Antiquarian Society, Philadelphia Public Library, Library of Congress, New York Public Library, and Rhode Island Historical Society. However, there is no mention of any of those copies being signed by Jefferson, and the dimensions given by NAIP are smaller than those of the present copy, indicating that those listed are not among the special copies signed by Jefferson for official transmittal. … [Click Below for Full Description]

HALL, J. after Sir Joshua REYNOLDS
London: J. Hall, No. 83 Berwick Street, April 30, 1791. Copper engraving. In excellent condition. Image size: 17 7/8 x 13 7/8 inches. 20 1/2 x 15 inches. 24 1/2 x 18 3/16 inches. A lovely copy of Reynolds' distinguished portrait of Richard Sheridan, the famous politician and dramatist. Richard Brinsley Sheridan (1751-1816) was a renowned British dramatist and politician. His witty plays exhibit the finest development of the comedy of manners in 18th-century England, and he was one of the most admired playwrights of his day. At a young age Sheridan purchased the Drury Lane Theatre in London, which he owned until it was destroyed by fire in 1809. Among his best known works are 'The School for Scandal', and 'The Critic' which are both witty satires on fashionable society. Sheridan became a member of parliament in 1780, and went on to lead a distinguished and influential parliamentary career. As a politician Sheridan was best remembered for his eloquent speeches in opposition to the British war against the American colonies. As a young man, he was acquainted with Samuel Johnson, and was later friends with George, Prince of Wales. O'Donoghue, Catalogue of Engraved British Portraits... in the British Museum 3.

Contemporary calf, expertly rebacked in period style, original gilt morocco label preserved. Rubbed. Scattered dampstaining and foxing. Despite defects, overall still very good. The Acts of Congress, from the first three sessions of the first Congress, bound together. Included herein: The second folio edition of the ACTS PASSED AT A CONGRESS..., after the first of 1789, reprinted to go with the session laws with which it is here bound. The first session of Congress met in New York on March 4, 1789, and continued until the end of September. It officially ratified the Constitution and Washington's election as first U.S. president, and passed much of the most basic legislation for the machinery of government, regulating the Customs, Judiciary, Post Office, Mint, and the like. Much time was spent on the Bill of Rights, which appears here, still including twelve amendments (the first two, relating to the numbers in a congressional district and congressional salaries, were later omitted). Needless to say, all of these things make the acts of this session a foundation work in the history of American government. The ACTS PASSED AT THE SECOND SESSION... "contains the Treaties and Conventions ratified with the several countries of Europe, and with the Indian tribes" (Evans). Much more important foundation legislation was passed in this session, including the Census, naturalization law, the copyright bill, the settling of the Distric … [Click Below for Full Description]

A difficult title to find intact as most volumes over the years have been broken for their beautiful individual plates which in this volume are quite clean with all tissue guards present.

Dagen innan hade Gustav III skjutits och den litterära fejden avstannade. De två avslutande arbetena är inlägg i den politiska och ekonomiska debatt som följde efter kriget mot Ryssland. Thorild anslöt sig till oppositionen mot enväldet och passade samtidigt på att kritisera den franska smaken. Han bemöttes snart av den kungatrogne Leopold i dennes "Den nya lagstiftningen" (1792).
