Following damning visits to the county gaol by John Howard in 1777 and 1784, when he found the inhuman and insanitary conditions typical of the period, Paul launched his campaign to reform the county prisons. 'In 1785 a committee under his direction secured an act of parliament for building a new gaol at Gloucester and four houses of correction in other parts of the county, the sites chosen being Littledean for the Forest of Dean; Northleach for the central Cotswolds; Horsley for the populous clothmaking valleys of the west Cotswolds; and Lawfords Gate, Bristol, for south Gloucestershire.

Das Kaiserreich erlebte in jener Zeit eine Blüte des sinozentrischen Weltbildes, in dem alle anderen Staaten als tributpflichtige Vasallenstaaten angesehen wurden, was den Handel für die europäischen Kaufleute, welche vor allem Seide, Tee u. Porzellan kauften, deutlich zu Gunsten Chinas erschwerte u. die Einfuhr von Gütern nach China nahezu unmöglich machte. Die Bestrebungen nach freiem Handel der Britischen Ostindienkompanie scheiterten. Im 19. Jh.zwang Groß Britannien China schließlich im ersten Opiumkrieg die Einfuhr und den Handel mit Opium gewaltsam auf, was das Land zu einem halbkolonialen Handelsgebiet herabwürdigte.- Vorsatz u.

        Atlas National et Général de la France, Divisée en ses Quartre-Vingt-Trois Départemens et en cinz cens quarante-trois Districts, . . .

      Paris: Veuve Hérissant, 1792. Half Calf. Very Good. Exceptionally richly hand-colored French atlas. Elephantine folio, 56 by 44 cm. Following title page (which contains table of contents as well), six two paged hand-colored maps. The first map, with its large allegorical cartouche, is especially spectacular, but all the maps are beautiful and noteworthy for the quality of their coloring. Scarce, with copies held by BNF, Bibliotheque Sainte-Genevieve, Leiden, and the National Library of Scotland, according to OCLC, and not clear whether all of these copies are hand-colored. Corner dampstains, most pronounced on title, then receding as progress. While unquestionably noticeable on the first map, in our view it doesn't seriously detract from the beauty of the map. Other light scattered soiling, which again, we do not find disconcerting. Some scuffing of the binding. While half calf technically, the calf coverage of the boards is minimal

      Striking copy, with possibly contemporary outline color, of a rare Spanish-made and separately published map of Panama; the source, as indicated in the map itself, was a manuscript â€"unkown- and that published by Jorge Juan and Antonio de Ulloa in their Relacion... de la America Meridional, by Juan de la Cruz. In all, the map is drawn after the foremost cartographic authorities of Spain. The chart focuses on the Pearl Islands and Gulf of Chiriqui, in the West Coast of Panama in the Pacific Ocean. Tomas Lopez (1731 - 1802) was one of the foremost Spanish mapmakers and publishers of the 18th century; he studied under Jean-Baptiste Bourguignon d'Anville in Paris, until returning to Madrid in 1760, when became Royal Geographer to King Charles III. His position gained him access to otherwise inaccessible sources of information, manuscript charts, recent geographical discoveries, and engineering labors altering the geographical reality of a region, guaranteeing his maps as the most up-to-date published in Spain.

        Beschryvinge van den archipel, tot nut van den krygsman, zeevaarenden en handeldryvenden.Amsterdam, 1792. 8vo. With a large folding engraved sea chart (57.5 x 68.5 cm). Publisher's original flexible boards covered with blue paper.

      KVK (5 copies); Sloos, Warfare 15317; STCN (4 copies); for the author: Biogr. woordenb. Gelderland V, pp. 70-72. Rare first Dutch edition of a detailed account of the Greek islands (the first edition to include the sea chart), by the great Dutch-German Admiral and naval strategist Kinsbergen, known as the Hero of the Black Sea for his successes in battles against the Turks in the 1770s. He gives a detailed description of the region, island by island, with the emphasis on navigation along the coasts, but also with information on fortifications. The book is explicitly directed to military men, seamen and merchants active in the area, and expresses the hope that political changes may in the future lift these islands out of their present state. The map of Greece and the surrounding seas is in Mercator projection at a scale of about 1:1,400,000, with rhumb lines, parallels and meridians, and reticulated scales of latitude in the left and right border. Some spotting on boards. Otherwise a fine copy, virtually untrimmed and in the original publisher's binding.

        Ueber die unterirdischen Gasarten und die Mittel ihren Nachtheil zu vermindern. Ein Beytrag zur Physik der praktische Bergbaukunde.Braunschweig, Friedrich Vieweg, 1799. 8vo. With 3 folded engraved plates. Modern half leather.

      Darmstaedter, p. 272; Löwenberg 57; Sotheran, Second Suppl. 14123 (rare); not in Hoover. Very rare collection of studies of air and gasses in mineshafts, including Humboldt's invention of safety lamps and a rescue apparatus for miners threatened with asphyxiation. Both devices had been tested by Humboldt himself in dangerous experiments. The author was employed by the Prussian mining service in 1792 and soon became manager of a mine. In the present work he investigates the air condition of mines under different circumstances, writes on subterranean meteorology, and deals with the technological side of mining matters (DSB VI, p. 549). Some foxing; a few pages with marginal restoration; a good copy of this interesting work on mining.

        The Theory of Moral Sentiments

      London: for A. Strahan; and T. Cadell in the Strand; and W. Creech, and J. Bell & Co. at Edinburgh,, 1792. or, An Essay Towards an Analysis of the Principles by which Men Naturally Judge Concerning the Conduct and Character, first of their Neighbours, and afterwards of themselves. To Which is Added, A Dissertation on the Origin of Languages. The Seventh Edition. In two Volumes. 2 volumes, octavo (210 x 130 mm). Rebound in modern speckled half calf, red morocco labels to spines, compartments ruled and decorated in gilt, marbled boards, edges speckled green. Small ownership inscription to title page. Contents lightly browned with some creasing and infrequent spotting, overall an excellent set. Seventh edition, a good set of Adam Smith's first book, the work that established his reputation as a philosopher both in London and on the Continent. "One of Adam Smith's major claims to fame, in some ways his greatest, is his development of a unified concept of an economic system with mutually interdependent parts. His development of this came well before the Wealth of Nations; it is in the Theory of Moral Sentiments of 1759 and the Lectures of 1762-3" (D. P. O'Brien, The Classical Economists, 1975, p. 29). The sixth edition of the Theory, which appeared a few months before Smith's death, evinced a number of broad developments in his later thought, as well as his last views on many specific points. Smith at least in part made extensive revisions so that he might bequeath a refreshment of copyright to his publisher, in which he was successful. This seventh edition, printed in 1000 copies, has some minor changes over the sixth. See the editors' introduction to the Glasgow edition (Oxford, 1976), pp. 15–20; Ross, Life, pp. 381–5, 391–5, and Richard Sher's account of the early editions of Adam Smith's books in Britain and Ireland in Tribe (ed.), A critical Bibliography of Adam Smith.

        Heptameron français Les nouvelles de Marguerite Reine de Navarre

      Berne: Chez la Nouvelle Société Typographique, 1792. Fine. Chez la Nouvelle Société Typographique, Berne 1792, in-8, xlvij (1bc.) 275pp. et (4) 308pp. et (4) 250pp. (1), 3 volumes reliés. - New edition, illustrated with a frontispiece by Dunker and engraved by Eichler and repeated in three volumes entitled to French Heptaméron 73 figures by Freudeberg and engraved by Gutenberg, Halbou, Henriquez ... 72 and 72 vignettes cul-de-lamp by Dunker engraved by itself and Richter, Eichler. Page titles engraved caligraphiques characters, what sets this edition of the first draft by 1783. The illustration, fine and detailed, is very beautiful and "engraved with remarkable finesse" (Cohen). - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Nouvelle édition imprimée sur grand papier, illustrée d'un frontispice par Dunker et gravé par Eichler avec pour intitulé « Heptaméron français », 73 figures par Freudeberg et gravées par Guttemberg, Halbou, Henriquez... 72 vignettes et 72 culs-de-lampe par Dunker gravés par lui-même et Richter, Eichler. Pages de titres gravées en caractères caligraphiques, ce qui distingue cette édition du premier tirage donné en 1783, également d'un meilleur papier. L'illustration, fine et détaillée, est fort belle et « gravées avec une finesse remarquable » (Cohen). « Elle est à peu de chose près du même prix » que l'édition de 1783 (Cohen). Reliures en plein maroquin à grain long bleu marine ca. 1815. Dos à nerfs ornés de fers complexes criblés, filets sur les nerfs et roulettes en queues et têtes. Succession de frises d'encadrement sur les plats, à froid puis à chaud, fers à froid, feuilles de vigne angulaires. À l'intérieur, grecques d'encadrement. Tranches dorées. Quelques traces de frottements aux coiffes et nerfs, coins. Pâles rousseurs éparses ; certains feuillets plus jaunes ou brunis. Un ex-libris aux armes a été décollé de chaque tome, la page de garde en porte la décharge, on peut encore y lire les armes. Magnifique exemplaire, richement relié par un maître mais non signé. Le style a été actualisé et modernisé, rendant plus aisée la lecture du premier recueil de nouvelles françaises dont le modèle fut le Décaméron de Bocacce. L'édition est l'un des plus beaux illustrés du XVIIIème avec les contes de La Fontaine des Fermiers Généraux. Freudenberg et Dunker, peintres et dessinateurs, vinrent à Paris pour parachever leur formation. Ils prirent comme modèle les contes de La Fontaine illustrés par Eisen et surpassèrent l'édition des Fermiers Généraux par la profusion des vignettes. Inspiré du Décaméron (le chiffre de cent devait être atteint comme il est dit dans le prologue), l'Heptaméron est l'un des plus célèbres recueils de nouvelles de l'histoire littéraire française. Le recueil s'ouvre sur un prologue circonstancié : bloquées à Cauterets (dans les Pyrénées) en pleine saison des pluies, dix personnes décident, pour se distraire, d'écouter, pendant une décade, des histoires, à raison de dix par journée (la huitième n'en comportera que deux). Selon Tchemerzine, il est reconnu que Des Perier a pris une assez grande part dans la rédaction de ce livre. Marguerite d'Angoulême, sœur de François Ier, exerça une grande influence sur la vie politique. Elle devint reine de Navarre après son mariage avec Henri II de Navarre. Elle est la mère de Jeanne d'Albret et la grand-mère de Henri de Navarre qui sera roi de France sous le titre de Henri IV. Grâce à sa grande culture et son intarissable soif de savoir - elle sait le grec, le latin et l'italien - son rayonnement intellectuel fut considérable. Elle fit de son château de Nérac le plus grand foyer intellectuel en Europe et un centre distingué de l'humanisme. Marot écrira d'elle : « Corps féminin, cœur d'homme et tête d'ange ».

        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"

        6 eigenh. Briefe m. Unterschrift.

      Zus. 17 S., 8. Charles de Montalembert entstammte einer alteingesessenen Familie aus dem Angoumois, die zahlreiche Persönlichkeiten hervorgebracht hatte [...]. Sein Vater Marc-René de Montalembert floh 1792 vor der Terrorherrschaft und bekämpfte die Französische Revolution auf Seiten der Royalisten. 1808 heiratete er Élise Rosée Forbes, Tochter eines protestantischen Schotten, der in Indien und Afrika Forschungsreisen unternommen hatte. 1810 kam Charles als Erstgeborener in London zur Welt und wuchs bis 1819 bei seinem Großvater mütterlicherseits in Stanmore, einem Londoner Ortsteil, auf. Nach seiner Ankunft in Paris absolvierte er zunächst das Lycée Bourbon und wurde bald ein begabter Student. Unter Einfluss des britischen politischen Systems entwickelte er liberale Ideen. Die Konversion seiner Mutter zum katholischen Glauben im Jahre 1822 verstärkte seine religiöse Bindung. Als Student fand er Zeit zur Bildung eines bedeutenden intellektuellen und mondänen Bekanntenkreises. Er verkehrte im Salon von Delphine Gay und besuchte die Philosophievorlesungen von Victor Cousin. Nach der Julirevolution von 1830 wurde er 1831 Pair von Frankreich. Nach der Revolution von 1848/49 wurde er Abgeordneter der verfassunggebenden Versammlung und der Legislative der Zweiten Französischen Republik sowie der Legislative im Zweiten Kaiserreich. Er war Befürworter der konstitutionellen Monarchie sowie des Liberalismus. Als einer der wichtigsten französischen Theoretiker des liberalen Katholizismus setzte er sich für die Presse- und Vereinigungsfreiheit sowie das Selbstbestimmungsrecht der Völker ein. 1851 wurde er zum Mitglied der Académie française ernannt. - Der Empfänger der auf Französisch abgefassten Briefe ist Jacques (Jacob) Mislin (1807-1878). Der aus ärmlichen Verhältnissen stammende Mislin konnte dank seines Onkels an der berühmten Lehranstalt von Porrentruy im Schweizer Kanton Bern studieren, wo er nicht viel später auch selbst unterrichten sollte. Der 1830 zum Priester geweihte kath. Theologe wurde 1836 auf Vermittlung des Grafen von Bombelle an den Wiener Hof berufen, wo er einer der Lehrer der Söhne von Erzherzog Franz Karl und Erzherzogin Sophie wurde und damit sowohl den zukünftigen Kaiser Franz Joseph wie auch Erzherzog Ferdinand Maximilian (später Kaiser Max von Mexiko) unterrichtete (u.a. auch in Erdkunde). Vor der Revolution von 1848 unternahm Mislin eine Pilgerreise von Wien über Budapest und Konstantinopel nach Jersusalem. Der danach erschienene Reisebericht wurde in mehrere Sprachen übersetzt und mehrfach nachgedruckt. In den folgenden Jahren leitete er die Bibliothek am Hof der Herzogin von Parma, Erzherzogin Marie Louise, wurde zum Abt von St. Maria von Deg (Ungarn), geheimer Kämmerer u. Hausprälat Papst Pius' XI., Apostolischer Pronotar, Kanoniker der Kathedrale von Großwardein, Träger zahlr. Orden (u.a. von Spanien, Parma u. des Ritterordens vom Heiligen Grab zu Jerusalem) sowie Mitglied zahlr. Akademien. Der Verfasser zahlr. Publikationen und Vertraute des belgischen Königs und des Grafen von Chambord blieb nach der Rückkehr von seiner Pilgerreise in Wien, wo er weiterhin in persönlichem Kontakt mit dem Kaiserhaus stand. - In einem numerierten, von Mislin eigenh. beschrifteten Papierumschlag. - Beiliegend eine Kleinschrift Montalemberts (Discours [...] sur la position des chrétiens de Syrie. Paris, 1845. 8 S.). -

        The Theory of Moral Sentiments or, An Essay Towards an Analysis of the Principles by which Men Naturally Judge Concerning the Conduct and Character, first of their Neighbours, and afterwards of themselves. To Which is Added, A Dissertation on the Origin of Languages. The Seventh Edition. In two Volumes.

      London: for A. Strahan; and T. Cadell in the Strand; and W. Creech, and J. Bell & Co. at Edinburgh, 1792 - 2 volumes, octavo (210 x 130 mm). Rebound in modern speckled half calf, red morocco labels to spines, compartments ruled and decorated in gilt, marbled boards, edges speckled green. Small ownership inscription to title page. Contents lightly browned with some creasing and infrequent spotting, overall an excellent set. Seventh edition, a good set of Adam Smith's first book, the work that established his reputation as a philosopher both in London and on the Continent. "One of Adam Smith's major claims to fame, in some ways his greatest, is his development of a unified concept of an economic system with mutually interdependent parts. His development of this came well before the Wealth of Nations; it is in the Theory of Moral Sentiments of 1759 and the Lectures of 1762-3" (D. P. O'Brien, The Classical Economists, 1975, p. 29). The sixth edition of the Theory, which appeared a few months before Smith's death, evinced a number of broad developments in his later thought, as well as his last views on many specific points. Smith at least in part made extensive revisions so that he might bequeath a refreshment of copyright to his publisher, in which he was successful. This seventh edition, printed in 1000 copies, has some minor changes over the sixth. See the editors' introduction to the Glasgow edition (Oxford, 1976), pp. 15–20; Ross, Life, pp. 381–5, 391–5, and Richard Sher's account of the early editions of Adam Smith's books in Britain and Ireland in Tribe (ed.), A critical Bibliography of Adam Smith. Alston III, 828; Goldsmiths' 15514; Kress B.2411; Jessop, p. 170; Tribe 44; Vanderblue, p. 38.
