        La Morale des Sens, ou L'Homme du siècle. Extrait des Mémoires de Mr. le Chevalier de Bar. [Barville], rédigés par Mr. M. D. M. [Mirabeau].

      - Londres, 1792. In-12, cartonnage marbré à la Bradel, pièce de titre et de date de veau bleu nuit (rel. moderne), (1) f., 244, (5) p. Seconde et dernière édition ancienne de ce classique de la littérature érotique du XVIIIe siècle. "Le 'chevalier de Bar.*** ', mystérieux auteur de cette petite merveille de lascivité et d'impertinence, n'est autre que le frère cadet de Mirabeau le tribun. Nous est troussée l'initiation d'un "libertin de qualité", le héros vole d'aventure en aventure et nous livre le détail de ses bonnes fortunes. La démocratie est déjà là : baronnes, soubrettes, filles des champs, nonnes sont égales devant la seule loi qui gouverne ici les humains, celle du désir. Et pour que la peinture soit complète, le bouillant Mirabeau en profite pour régler quelques comptes, car son récit est à "clés", et les dards qui s'y trouvent à l'œuvre savent aussi joliment assassiner. L'on jouit, en ces pages, de l'art délicieux qui s'y donne carrière. Ce qui permettra à la presse et aux libraires de recommander ce petit livre aux jeunes gens et aux jeunes filles qui voudraient se familiariser avec la plus belle langue qui jamais fut" (Edition Phébus). (Gay, III, 278. Pia, 'Livres de l'enfer', 887). Quelques feuillets lég. brunis. Bon exemplaire, grand de marges, bien relié. ((CURIOSA-)) [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        A Letter … to Sir Hercules Langrishe, Bart. M.P. on the subject of Roman Catholics of Ireland,

      London: [1] for J. Debrett; [2] for F. and C. Rivington; [3] for F. and C. Rivington; sold also by J. Hatchard,, 1792-96-97. and the propriety of admitting them to the elective franchise, consistently with the principles of the constitution as established at the revolution; [bound with] — Two Letters addressed to A Member of The Present Parliament, on the proposals for Peace with the Regicide Directory of France; [and] — A Third Letter … [on the same subject]. 3 pamphlets bound in one volume, octavo (210 × 125 mm). Contemporary tree calf, neatly rebacked to style retaining old red morocco label. Contemporary ownership inscription of George Moore to first title, shaved by the binder, and his manuscript list of contents to front free endpaper, a few marginalia in the same hand; early engraved book label of Charlotte Moore to front pastedown. No half-titles. Corners just worn at tips, but a good clean copy, sympathetically restored. First editions of three of Burke's tracts, the volume apparently with a suitably Anglo-Irish provenance. The first is in the form of a letter to an old protestant friend, Sir Hercules Langrishe, arguing for fully fledged Catholic enfranchisement. The second "was directed against what its author regarded as signs of dangerous appeasement on the part of government. The letters included one of Burke's most interesting expositions of the history of his own century, emphasizing how far Britain's interests and those of Europe as a whole coincided" (ODNB). The third letter on the same subject was published without authorization after Burke's death.

Condition fair., There are also reports on the assassination of the King of Sweden, letters from France, and the major U.S. cities, Philadelphia, New York, and Boston. Besides ads, last page has an interesting article on Absurd Customs. Dr. John Gregory notes that Westerners are horrified at "barbarians" who bind their heads, or feet (Chinese), or distort nose shape. Yet they think nothing of binding young women into stays that restrict breathing and circulation and cause them to faint, or to bind infants into cradles to they don't have to be watched constantly. He notes that among those who wear unrestrictive clothing or none at all: The superior strength, just proportions, and agility of savages are entirely the effects of their hardy education, of their living mostly abroad in the open air, and of their limbs never having suffered any confinement. Interesting, especially given the early date. [Attributes: First Edition]

First edition of the principal work of the topographer Daniel Lysons (1762-1834), produced with the keen support of Horace Walpole, to whom the work is dedicated.

      London: Printed for George Nicol, 1792.. [10],153,246-264pp. plus portrait, three plates (two folding), and four plans and charts (three folding). Stipple-engraved portrait frontispiece of Bligh by J. Condé after J. Russell; seven engraved plates, charts, and plans (comprising plate of a breadfruit, two folding plans, and four charts [three folding]). Large quarto. Three-quarter morocco and marbled boards. A very large, untrimmed, copy. Several manuscripts tipped in. A handsome copy with significant association material attached, near fine. First edition of the full official account of the Bounty expedition, the famous mutiny and Bligh&#39;s miraculous navigation to safety. This work "includes a revised version of the text of Bligh&#39;s narrative of the mutiny, previously published in London in 1790....This account was based upon Bligh&#39;s journal but was written, edited and seen through the press by James Burney, under the supervision of Sir Joseph Banks, during Bligh&#39;s absence from London while on his second breadfruit voyage on the Providence" (Hill, p.48). The most remarkable part of the narrative is undoubtedly Bligh&#39;s account of the voyage in the Bounty&#39;s twenty-three- foot launch. His achievement of safely navigating an open vessel packed with nineteen men a distance of four thousand miles without serious mishap is almost without parallel in the history of ocean travel. This copy is greatly enhanced by the inclusion of three manuscripts. The first is an autograph letter signed from Bligh concerning the makeup of the crew of the Bounty, noting that two men of the original crew of 46 had died early in the voyage, leaving a total of 44 men when the critical events transpired. While undated, Bligh&#39;s unnamed correspondent "W.P." has noted on the same sheet the names of the two in a note dated Nov. 6, 1817, a month before Bligh&#39;s death. The letter would certainly have been written after Bligh&#39;s final return to England in 1810. Also tipped in is Bligh&#39;s signature on a card. Additionally, a 3pp. manuscript poem, "To Captain Bligh", written in 1793 by George Keate (himself the author of a famous Pacific voyage) is tipped in. A fine copy with notable association material of one of the most famous of Pacific voyages. COX II, p.305. DU RIETZ 93. FERGUSON 125. HILL 135. MENDELSSOHN II, 1117. SABIN 5910. WANTRUP 62a.

      . 2 volumes in-8, broches, couverture papier bleu d'origine (dos renforces, ensemble sous chemise et etui de demi-veau marbre, dos orne dans le gout de l'epoque). Edition originale des deux parties. Paine passa specialement d'Amerique en Angleterre pour publier cette reponse a Burke, ce qui lui valut une condamnation immediate et le bannissement du Royaume-Uni. Il ne dut son salut qu'a une fuite precipitee en France ou il obtint la citoyennete et fut elu a la Convention en 1792. Dans cet ouvrage, il soumet sa doctrine d'un gouvernement legitime fonde sur un pacte social issu des Droits de l'Homme, l'epanouissement de l'individu rendu enfin a lui-meme et le progres du genre humain. "Etablir ces principes generaux, tel etait le premier but de Paine. Le second etait d'exposer l'exacte et veridique histoire des evenements de France jusqu'a l'annee 1791, une des sources les plus instructives a consulter. Beaucoup d'histoires auraient gagne a tenir un plus grand compte des recits de Paine" (M.D. Conway, 'T. Paine', p. 185).

      1792 - Stockholm, C. G. Cronland, 1792. 8:o. Near contemporary half calf with gilt spine and red label. Yellow edges. Front joint just starting. Occasional foxing. Contemporary signature on title. A nice copy. Åhlén & Åhlén Censur och tryckfrihet 17.355. Translated and edited by C. F. Nordenskiöld, whose foreword is dated "London, Winchester Row d. 28 maji 1791". The original, "Rights of man", was published in 1791 and according to PMM it is "the clearest of all expositions of the basic principles of democracy". The translator Nordenskiöld was sympathetic to the ideas of the French revolution and had to wait until after the death of King Gustav III before he could publish his Swedish translation of Paine's epochal work. However, he wisely left out the two final chapters containing Paine's critique of the Court as an institution and his recommendation of the republic as a state form. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Titles in gilt on red leather spine with raised bands. Leather in beautiful condition, with only slightest rubbing at base of spine. Internally, very good, with red leather owner bookplate inside front cover with initials "WAR"; and with light scattered fox spotting. The first Letter is Thomas Paine's response to the Abbe Raynal's account of the American Revolution, in which Paine corrects the Abbe's misconceptions and distortions of the war. Howes P25, Sabin 58222. The second Letter concerns a defense of Paine's work "Rights of Man" in which he writes, "And it will hereafter be placed in the history of extraordinary things, that a pamphlet should be produced by an individual, unconnected with any sect or party, and not seeking to make any, and almost a stranger in the land, that should compleatly frighten a whole Government, and that in the midst of its most triumphant security. Such a circumstance cannot fail to prove, that either the pamphlet has irresistible powers, or the Government very extraordinary defects, or both. The nation exhibits no signs of fear at the Rights of Man; why then should the Government, unless the interest of the two are really opposite to each other, and the secret is beginning to be known?" Howes P28. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Miscellaneous Articles. A Letter Addressed to the Abbe Raynal, on the Affairs of North America. Letter Addressed to the Addressers on the Late Proclamation.

      London: first two works Printed for J. Ridgway; third work Printed for H.D. Symonds. and Thomas Clio Rickman 1792 - Three works bound in one, "Miscellaneous Articles" first edition, 33, (3 advertisement), 36, 40 pp. Some light browning and minor tears, one corner torn away without loss. 20th century boards. "Miscellaneous Articles" collects 8 pieces; letters to the Marquis of Lansdowne, the Authors of the Republican, Abbé Syeyes, Lord Onslow the people of France and two to Henry Dundas as well as his "Thoughts on the Peace". "A Letter to Abbé Raynal" first appeared in 1782 and remains one of Paine&#146;s most important works, disputing an earlier account of the American revolution, and indeed the definition of "revolution" itself.The "Letter to the Addressers." concerns the government&#146;s warning against "wicked and seditious libels" in May 1792, directed chiefly at the second part of "The Rights of Man" and follows on from his letters to Dundas and Onslow. This response was at the printers even as he fled the country in September of the same year. Gimbel pp83, 72, 74. Sabin 58222 notes similar editions of "Abbé Raynal".

        Memoria analitico-demonstrativa da maquina de dilatação, e de contracção ?.

      Lisbon, Na Oficina de Joaquim José Florencio Gonçalves, 1792. - Engraved plate. Woodcut Portuguese royal arms on title page. Woodcut initials on second leaf recto and on p. 1. Woodcut headpiece on p. 1 and tailpiece on p. 27. Typographical headpiece on p. 23. Engraved plate, (3 ll.), 27 pp., (1 blank l.). 4°, contemporary marbled wrappers (spine defective; some wear to lower outer corner of front wrapper). Very occasional light foxing. Overall in very good to fine condition. ---- FIRST and ONLY EDITION of this work describing the invention of a ladder for use in fighting fires. The author, a native of Bahia, was motivated by having witnessed a fire in Lisbon in 1787 in which nineteen people died due to the lack of an apparatus able to evacuate them from the upper floors of the burning building. Mendes' "expanding and contracting machine" was the answer. He describes the ladder in detail, with careful instructions for its proper use. The engraving reveals that this invention was based on good mechanical principles.From p. 23 to the end is "Tentativas, ou ensaios em que tem entrado o Autor ?," devoted to eleven other inventions Mendes was working on. They are useful machines such as water pumps for wells, a plow and machine for sowing seeds, improvements to urban illumination, burning wood more efficiently for cooking and heating, and several apparatuses for shipbuilding. This essay also appeared separately. Oliveira Mendes (born 1748, according to Borba de Moraes, and said to be still alive in 1814) was a member of the Academia Real das Sciencias de Lisboa. He had a law degree from Coimbra University, and worked as a lawyer for the Casa da Supplicação.---- Borba de Moraes (1983) II, 558; @Período colonial, p. 321. Sacramento Blake V, 354.
