      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]

        Letters Addressed to the Abbe Raynal, on the Affairs of North-America, in Which the Mistakes of the Abbe's Account of Revolution in America are Corrected and Cleared Up. Also: Letter to the Addressers on the Late Proclamation.

      J. Ridgway,, London: 1792 - Small 8vo, introduction (ii), first Letter, 46pp, second Letter, 40pp, marbled end papers. One half deep red calf covers with red marbled boards. 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’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’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.

        A Voyage to the South Sea, undertaken by command of His Majesty, for the purpose of conveying the Bread-Fruit Tree to the West Indies in His Majesty's Ship The Bounty, commaned by Lieutenant William Bligh.

      London: Printed for George Nicol, Bookseller to His Majesty, Pall-Mall. 1792 - " including an account of the mutiny on board the said ship, and the subsequent voyage of the crew, in the ship's boat." First edition. Quarto. Size of binding: 9 in. x 11 3/8 in. [10], 264 pp. Stipple-engraved frontispiece portrait of Bligh and seven other engraved plates (five are folding). Full, old mottled calf; sympathetically re-backed in matching leather, with the gilt, red leather title label laid down. Cover corners show some wear. Small, early owner's name on the title-page and top of page one: "P Hinckes." This is Bligh's full-length account of the mutiny aboard the H.M.S. Bounty, an event whose notoriety is due in great part to its depiction in five feature-length films. Fletcher Christian, one of Bligh's officers, led a mutiny on the ship's return voyage from Tahiti, setting Bligh and 18 of his loyal officers adrift in a small boat. Some 3600 miles and about three months later, Bligh and his men landed at Timor. A number of factors precipitated the mutiny: some of the men wanted to return to Tahiti and re-establish warm relationships with the natives, especially the women; they resented Bligh’s intention to finish circumnavigating the globe; some resented what they saw as Bligh's excessive discipline. The mutineers settled on Pitcairn Island; three were later executed. Bligh was exonerated by an investigating committee and continued his services to His Majesty's Navy. Weight: 3 1/4 lbs. Postage may be extra on this item. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        AN ACCOUNT OF THE MUTINOUS SEIZURE OF THE BOUNTY, WITH THE SUCCEEDING HARDSHIPS OF THE CREW. TO WHICH IS ADDED, SECRET ANECDOTES OF THE OTAHEITEAN FEMALES

      London: Printed by E. Bently And sold by Bell and Taylor, et al, [ca. 1792].. [4],[9]-76pp. plus engraved frontispiece. Small octavo. Modern speckled calf, gilt, leather label. Small faint spot to first few leaves, else a near fine copy. One of two Bently variants published simultaneously, the other bearing an imprint to be sold by H. D. Symonds. According to Hill, Bently based their publication on a slightly earlier account by publisher Robert Turner. "Following Bligh's return to England in March of 1790, publisher Robert Turner recognized that the public had an insatiable interest in the story of the mutiny. Turner believed that he could capitalize on this interest by stealing the thunder from Bligh's official account, then in preparation. Culling information from newspaper reports, Hawkesworth's VOYAGES, and other recent works on Tahiti, Turner published the sensationalized version...AN ACCOUNT ON THE MUTINOUS SEIZURE OF THE BOUNTY...The [later] Bently version differed in its larger format, the inclusion of an engraving of Bligh in his nightshirt, and most importantly, as Stephen Walters points out, probably the first published clue to Fletcher Christian's post- mutiny whereabouts: the publisher reports information from a voyager that Christian and the mutineers had recently left Tahiti with promises to return, and concludes from this information 'that they have turned pirates'" -Hill. This edition is not in Hill, who only owned a 1987 reprint edition. "An anonymous narrative. The account of the Mutiny is based on Bligh's book; the 'Secret Anecdotes of the Otaheitean Females' are extracted from Hawkesworth" - Ferguson. This latter account of Tahitian women is sometimes wanting, likely by a censor's hand. To account for the seeming mispagination at the beginning of the text, Ferguson notes that, "Apparently an error occurred in numbering the pages." FERGUSON 132. ESTC N29876. HILL 1825 (1987 reprint).
