        Andrew Kippis, D.D. F.R.S. & S.A.

      London: Thos. Macklin, 20 October, 1792. Stipple engraving, 290 x 210 mm., An uncommon portrait of Cook's great first biographer, stipple-engraved by the great artist Bartolozzi, famous for his role in producing many of the engravings relating to Cook's third voyage, including a portrait of Cook and the famous separately-issued death scene at Kealekekua.Reverend Andrew Kippis (1725-1795) was an antiquarian and writer who wrote the most important biography of Cook, published in 1788. Like the other two main landlubber writers who worked on Cook's voyages, John Hawkesworth and the Canon John Douglas, Kippis and his biography have attracted some criticism, but its importance to the legacy of Cook is immeasureable, not least because some version remained the standard biography, endlessly reprinted, for over a century.The engraving was made by William Artaud, and is the first portrait of Kippis recorded by the UK National Portrait Gallery. Very good.

        für die Preussischen Staaten.

      Berlin, bey Joachim Pauli, 1792. 4 Teile und Register in 4 Bänden. 8vo. (I:) Titelkupfer, Tb., XXXII, 424; (II:) Tb., (425-) 1064; (III:) Tb., 696; (IV:) Tb., (697-) 1400 S.; (Register:) Tb., 394 S. Schöne zeitgenössische Halblederbände mit geprägten Rückenschildern, Lederecken und Buntpapierbezug. (Stempel \"K.P.G.C.\" und preußischem Adler auf Tb.-Rückseiten, Buntpapierbezug stellenw. leicht berieben, kl. Ausriss am unteren Kapital des Registereinbandes repariert). Extrem seltene Titelauflage (1792) der Erstausgabe (1791) des Preußischen Landrechts. - Das Gesetzbuch, verabschiedet und gedruckt in 1791, sollte im Frühsommer 1792 in Kraft treten. Es handelt sich bei der vorliegenden Ausgabe um die Ausgabe 1791, die im Jahre 1792 vom Verleger Pauli lediglich mit neuen Titelblättern versehen wurde. Es handelt sich also eigentlich um die Erstausgabe, erkennbar am dem Teil I vorangestellten Patent des Königs Friedrich Wilhelm, hier umfassend die Seiten I-XX: \"Wir Friedrich Wilhelm, von Gottes Gnaden König von Preussen u. s. w. Thun kund und fügen hierdurch jedermann zu wissen: Seit dem Antritte Unserer Regierung haben Wir in der völligen Ueberzeugung, daß gute und billige, deutlich und bestimmt abgefaßte Gesetze zum allgemeinen Wohl eben so sehr, als zur Sicherung und Beförderung der Privatglückseeligkeit eines jeden Einwohners im Staate nothwendig sind, Uns angelegen seyn lassen, Unsern getreuen Unterthanen ein solches Gesetzbuch zu verschaffen...\". Das Publikationspatent erteilte der preußische König am 20. März 1791. Mit dem 1. Juni 1792 sollte das Gesetzbuch Gesetzeskraft erlangen. Das Werk war noch nicht erschienen, als es am 18. April 1792 suspendiert wurde. Die Suspension galt zunächst für unbestimmte Zeit, kein Werk durfte in den Handel, kein Exemplar wurde verkauft. Später durften die 1791 gedruckten Exemplare mit neuem Titelblatt 1792 in den Handel gebracht werden. Das Gesetzbuch wurde - nach einigen Modifikationen - erst im Jahre 1794 unter dem neuen Titel \"Allgemeines Landrecht für die preussischen Staaten\" und mit dem Hinweis \"Zweyte Auflage\" herausgebracht. - Das erste Land, das im Sinne des Vernunftrechtes Kodifikationen zu schaffen suchte, um damit die menschliche Gesellschaft nach Vernunftgründen zu organisieren, war das Königreich Preussen. Die Initiative für das Reformwerk ergriff noch Friedrich der Große, der sich in Fragen der Gesetzgebung als ein Schüler von Voltaire und Montesquieu verstand. Die bereits zu Beginn des 18. Jahrhunderts angefangenen Arbeiten fanden jedoch erst mit dem \"Allgemeinen Landrecht für die Preussischen Staaten\" ihren Abschluß. Jedoch konnte sich der Entwurf zunächst nicht vom Römischen Recht und dessen Systematik der Institutionen lösen. Erst die Übernahme der Systemversuche von Christian Wolff und Samuel Pufendorf ließen das preußische Gesetzeswerk reifen und schließlich zu einem der Höhepunkte der zivilrechtlichen Kodifikationen im Zeitalter des Vernunftrechts werden. Das Allgemeine Preußische Landrecht sollte eine endgültige Regelung der Gesellschaftsordnung darstellen: über 20000 Paragraphen sollten alle Einzelheiten des Lebens regeln. Die Endgültigkeit der Regelungen führte beinahe zwangsläufig zu einem Kommentierungsverbot. Alle im Gesetz nicht geregelten Tatbestände mußten danach durch Anfrage beim Justizminister in Berlin angefragt und geregelt werden. Aber nicht nur die Richter, auch die Rechtslehrer und Wissenschaftler durften nicht kommentieren. Zumindest sollten ihre Meinungen nicht berücksichtigt werden: \"Auf Meinungen der Rechtslehrer soll bei künftigen Entscheidungen keine Rücksicht genommen werden\". Versand D: 2,00 EUR 0.3.1.3.

Bon ensemble, décoratif. Publié en trois parties de 1787 à 1790, La vie et les amours du chevalier de Faublas est un roman libertin (le dernier du XVIIIe siècle) contant les aventures amoureuses d'un jeune provincial installé à Paris avec son père et sa soeur. Le roman emprunte à plusieurs genres, celui de la littérature libertine avec Crébillon fils, celui de la comédie libertine avec Andréa de Nerciat, et celui du roman d'aventure ; on y distingue également une tendance à l'introspection héritée de Rousseau. On ne saurait toutefois oublier que l'oeuvre a été écrite pour dénoncer la corruption des moeurs d'avant la Révolution. Il est certain que l'ouvrage eut un beau succès et assura une fortune assez considérable à son auteur.

      Paris: Des Lauriers [without PN], [between 1779 and 1792]. Folio. Full contemporary green vellum with mid-tan leather label with decorative border gilt lettered "Romagnat" to upper, edges colored in red. 1f. (title), 211, [i] (blank) pp. Engraved. With blank overpaste to title with later manuscript note in pencil: "On a caché par cette [...] un nom [...] d'une personne qui a été guillotinée[:] Marie-Antoinette" (by this overpaste, a name of a guillotined person has been obscured: Marie-Antoinette). Labels to verso of upper board: printed advertisement of "Husson Marchand Papier" to upper left corner; "Ex libris Georges van Parys" (in the shape of a G clef) to center. Bass figures entered throughout: pp. 1-31, 164-70, and 174-end in pencil, otherwise in ink. Some moderate browning; occasional creasing and staining. Second edition, first issue. Hopkinson 46A (a). Wotquenne 46 (pp. 215-16). Lesure p. 239. RISM G2816. "Iphigénie en Tauride was given on May 18, 1778, with excellent singers; Rosalie Lavasseur sang Iphigénie, Larrivée Oreste, Legros Pylade, and Moreau Thoas... The opera had a great success immediately, and even Grimm wrote of it - I do not know whether this is melody, but perhaps it is something better. When I hear Iphigénie I forget I am at the opera; I seem to be listening to a Greek tragedy, with music by Lekain and Mlle Clarion. It was the crowning point of Gluck's career. Guillard had provided an excellent libretto, more classical than Goethe's poem, less Christian and more ruthless; and Gluck had seized on the contrast between Scythians and Greeks, upon the perfectly dramatic figures of Iphigenia and Orestes, and had produced a work which both re-created a part of Greek tragedy and at the same time foretold a new world." Cooper: Gluck, p. 258. While Marie-Antoinette is not actually mentioned on the title, she was the queen to whom the work is dedicated. Hopkinson describes a later issue with a new title without the dedication (46 A [c]). Georges van Parys (1902-1971) was a French composer of operetta and film music.

         Les chaînes de l'esclavage Ouvrage destiné à développer les noirs attentats des princes contre les peuples; les ressords secrets, les ruses, les menées, les artifices, les coups d'état qu'ils employent pour détruire la liberté, et les scènes sanglantes qui accompagnent le despotisme.

      P., imp. de Marat, l'an premier de la République, (1792), in 8°, de 366pp. (mal chiffrées 364), broché époque, couv. papier vert avec étiquette au dos, sous double emboîtage en cart. moderne, restauration en marge du faux titre et qq. rares rousseurs sinon bon exemplaire à toutes marges tel que paru. Très rare première édition française de ce texte fameux rédigé en français alors que Marat était en Angleterre. Il fut traduit par lui-même en anglais et publié à très petit nombre à Londres en 1774. L'édition française ne parut donc que 19 ans plus tard, corrigée et augmentée de propos sur la guerre d'indépendance américaine et sur les trois années de révolution en France. "C'est aux chaînes de l'esclavage que Marat doit sa réputation d'avoir été le premier théoricien de l'insurrection." (G. Walter Marat, p.27). Il y dénonce le despotisme des rois et leur usurpation progressive du pouvoir, y défend la liberté, les droits de l'homme et le principe de la souveraineté du peuple. A la fin se trouve le "Tableau des vices de la Constitution angloise, présenté en août 1789 aux Etats-Généraux, comme une série d'écueils à éviter dans le gouvernement qu'ils voulaient donner à la France". ¶ Bougeart p.366 - Martin & Walter n°22849.

        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... including an account of the mutiny on board the said ship, and the subsequent voyage of part of the Crew, in the Ship's Boat, from Tofoa, one of the Friendly Islands, to Timor, a Dutch settlement in the East Indies.

      London: George Nicol, 1792. Quarto, with frontispiece portrait, and six plans and charts; fine uncut copy in recent half spotted calf with black and crimson morocco spine labels. First edition. This is a handsome and notably large copy of this classic, one of the great voyage accounts of all time: the official narrative by William Bligh of the voyage of the Bounty. This is the full account of the voyage, and includes a slightly altered version of Bligh's description of the mutiny and the open-boat voyage which had been rushed into print separately two years earlier. At the time of this publication Bligh was on his second breadfruit voyage, and the work was edited by James Burney with the assistance of Sir Joseph Banks.The open-boat voyage, one of the most famous feats of seamanship of all time, was also notable for the coastal discoveries made almost accidentally in the course of the desperate voyage. Bligh's description here is accompanied by his important engraved chart of discoveries made on the coast of present-day Queensland. His achievement in charting large sections of the coast under conditions of terrible hardship partly completed the work of Cook himself on the Australian east coast. Occasional light foxing, likewise affecting the frontispiece (as often).

An astonishing and fascinating account of the 1791 Maroon slave uprising in Haiti (the only slave uprising ever to have resulted in the subsequent formation of a nation state) which resulted in the abolition of slavery in France in 1794 (until its resurrection under Napoleon) and the rise of the Haitian leader Toussaint Louverture.

        Chart of the Coast Between Botany Bay and Broken Bay

      London: John Stockdale, 1792. Engraved chart, 720 x 400 mm. Important early colonial map of the coastline of New South Wales, a direct result of searching for alternate settlement sites within easy sailing distance from Sydney Cove. John Hunter and William Bradley undertook surveys of Broken Bay and Botany Bay and the coastline that linked them; the result being this fine sounding chart of all three harbours. This map was originally published to accompany Hunter's great early settlement account titled An Historical Journal of the Transactions at Port Jackson and Norfolk Island (1793). A little toning and browning, folded to quarto size, now preserved as a flat sheet.

        Della Specola Astronomica de' Regi Studi di Palermo Libri Quattro.

      First edition Palermo: Reale Stamperia, 1792. A fine copy, uncut in the original boards, of Piazzi's account of the Palermo Observatory, which he established, and where he made the observations that led to his discovery, on January 1, 1801, of the minor planet Ceres. Specola Astronomica includes Piazzi's description of the astronomical instruments he had commissioned and assembled for the Palermo Observatory, the most famous of which was Jesse Ramsden's vertical circle, illustrated on the plates in this volume. A "large theodolite-type instrument was the 5-foot vertical circle which Ramsden made for Piazzi's new observatory at Palermo. Both Ramsden and Piazzi worked at this instrument, twice abandoned before its completion in August, 1789. The horizontal circle gave readings in azimuth read by a micrometer microscope, and the vertical, readings in altitude by two diametrically opposed microscopes. The divisions on the circles were illuminated by an inclined silver mirror fixed to each microscope, and the wires in the telescope eyepiece by transmitting light from a small instrument through the hollow tube-axis - two Ramsden innovations. This instrument, the finest complete circle hitherto made, formed the basis of Piazzi's astronomical work. With it he catalogued nearly 8000 stars, compiled a valuable table of refractions, and attempted to measure the parallax of several bright stars. The great labour involved in the catalogue is the more remarkable when we consider that each star was observed several times before its position was decided" (King, History of the Telescope, pp. 166-8, with the circle illustrated). Summoned in 1780 by the viceroy of Sicily to fill the chair of higher mathematics at the Academy of Palermo, Piazzi was encouraged to establish an astronomical observatory, "and toward the end of the 1780s Piazzi went to England in order to obtain the best possible equipment. "In England, Piazzi met Maskelyne, William Herschel, and Ramsden... The most important result of Piazzi's English visit... was the great five-foot vertical circle, a masterpiece of eighteenth-century technology, that he commissioned from Ramsden. It was installed in the observatory in the Santa Ninfa tower of the royal palace of Palermo in 1789, and is still preserved there. The Palermo observatory opened in 1790, and Piazzi was appointed its director, a post that he retained for most of the rest of his life. "Having returned to Palermo, Piazzi took up the problem of the precise determination of the astronomical coordinates (direct ascension and declination) of the principal stars. Palermo was then the southernmost European observatory, and the favourable climatic conditions that it provided allowed him to study more stars than had been previously catalogued, with a greater degree of accuracy" (DSB). Piazzi published two additional parts of this work, but without plates, in 1794 and 1806. Lalande, p. 622 ("Ce grand et précieux ouvrage"). Folio (370 x 255 mm), pp. xxxii, 240 and 4 folding engraved plates (the first plate showing Ramsden's vertical circle measures 650 x 470 mm). Uncut and completely untouched in the original carta rustica, a very fine, fresh, and crisp copy. Rare.

        'Hints Respecting Botany Bay' [in] Miscellanies in Prose and Verse...

      Edinburgh: J. Robertson, 1792. Octavo, 336 pp.; a very good copy in nineteenth-century half calf over marbled boards. Rare, with an early essay on Botany Bay by a Scottish judge and therefore providing some insight into the reaction of the legal profession to the realities of transportation: 'the Botany-bay scheme is the most absurd, prodigal and impracticable vision that ever intoxicated the mind of man.'Lord Gardenstone (1721-1793) was a distinguished judge, bon vivant and a wonderful eccentric noted for his fondness for pigs: he was 'distinguished for his conviviality, at a period when, especially in Scotland, it must be admitted that real proficiency was requisite to procure fame in that qualification' (Robert Chambers, A Biographical Dictionary of Eminent Scotsmen, 1835). He also found time to be an occasional writer, and this is a charming selection of some of his pensées and poems, which unsurprisingly includes a rollicking ode 'On Hard Drinking.'In his 'Hints on Botany Bay', Lord Gardenstone takes as his starting point the contemporary reports that some 2029 convicts had been transported prior to 18 March 1791, at a cost of £374,000 beside some unrecorded "contingencies". He was astounded by the excessively high cost of hundreds of pounds per convict, especially when there was no hint that the costs would abate; Gardenstone recommended instead the adoption of the Panopticon as devised by the great penal theorist Jeremy Bentham. To those who would argue that the colony would become quickly self-sufficient, he noted that such dreams of agriculture in Sydney were unconvincing when one realised that Governor Phillip's exploring party took five days 'to penetrate thirty miles into the desart' - evidence, by the way, that he had read Phillip's account.This is the second edition, although copies of the first edition appear to be very thin on the ground indeed (no copy of any first edition is recorded by the English Short Title Catalogue, suggesting that the "first" edition may well be a publisher's puff). Ferguson recorded copies of this second edition in the Mitchell Library and the National Library of Australia. Binding rubbed.

In June of 1770, Gilpin embarked on his first truly picturesque tour.

        Lettres persanes].

      Shnor Sankt Peterburg 1792 - Small octavo, two parts in one vol. (19 x 11.5 cm). Title with portrait of Montesquieu engraved by I.K. Nabholz, 563 pp.; some small marginal repairs, small loss of text (1-2 letters) partly restored in contemporary writing on pp. 131-132, 134, 511-514 corners of pp. 497-498 and 563-564 torn off not affecting text, occasional contemporary inscriptions, one in different hand from 1935 to upper fly leaf. Contemporary calf, black and red morocco label to spine lettered in blind; rubbed, block shaken but holding. A masterpiece of the French XVIII century literature in an early Russian translation. Completed in 1721, this important piece of French literature recounts in 161 letters the experiences of two Persian noblemen, Usbek and Rica, who are travelling through France. Having left his seraglio in Isfahan in 1711, Usbek takes on a long journey, accompanied by his young friend Rica. During the trip and their stay in Paris during 1712–1720, they comment, in letters exchanged with friends and mullahs, on numerous aspects of Western, Christian society, particularly French politics and Moors, ending with a biting satire of the system of John Law. A clever way to criticise the Ancien Régime without seeming to. The Lettres persanes was an immediate success and often imitated. In Russia the text widely circulated among upper classes, but it was available only in original French or other Western European languages, until the first Russian translation by Fiodor Pospelov was published in 1789 (without any illustration). It was followed closely by the present edition with the text newly translated by the retired collegiate councillor Efim Roznotovskiy (1737-92). Very rare. WorldCat locates two copies only - in Harvard and Cambridge University library. Sopikov 6303; Rodossky 632; Svodnyi Katalog XVIII 4334.

        Allgemeine Revision des gesammten Schul- und Erziehungswesens von einer Gesellschaft praktischer Erzieher. (Hrsg. von Joachim Heinrich Campe). 16 Bände. Gute Halblederbde d. Z. auf 5 Bünden mit Rückenschild und Rückenvergoldung (ein Band kaum merkbar nachgebunden).

      Hamburg, Karl Ernst Bohn; Wolfenbüttel, Schulbuchhandlung; Wien und Wolfenbüttel bzw. Braunschweig, Gräffer und Schulbuchhandlung, 1785-1792. - Vollständiges Exemplar des ersten Versuchs einer "kritischen Bestandsaufnahme des gesamten pädagogischen Wissens der damaligen Zeit" (Killy), alle Bände in der seltenen ersten Ausgabe. Das großangelegte Sammelwerk ist das herausragendste Produkt der philanthropinischen Aufklärungspädagogik. Campe (1746-1818), führender Kopf in Fragen der Erziehungs- und Unterrichtsreform, versucht, seine Lehren den breiten Volksschichten nahezubringen. Durch angenehme Unterhaltung mit Beispielen aus der Alltagswelt der Kinder sucht er sie zu vernünftigem Lebenswandel anzuhalten. Zahlreiche Autoren beteiligten sich am Revisionswerk: Bahrdt, Moritz, Ebeling, Büsch, Pfeffel, Salzmann, Struve, Unzer, Uhden, Trapp u. a. So enthält das Werk in den Bänden 12-15 den größten Erziehungsroman des 18. Jahrhunderts, Rousseaus 'Emile' in der ersten vollständigen deutschen Übersetzung mit Campes und anderer – sehr umfangreichen – erläuternden und berichtigenden Anmerkungen. In Band 1 findet sich neben der Vorrede und einer Abhandlung Campes über den Plan des Gesamtwerks die Abhandlung von K. F. Bahrdt über den Zweck der Erziehung, von Campe selbst die 'Erfordernisse einer guten Erziehung von Seiten der Eltern vor und nach der Geburt des Kindes' sowie zwei Abhandlungen von Stuve über die Grundsätze der Erziehung, von der Verbindung von Körper, Geist und Seele, vom Einfluss der Gesellschaft auf den Menschen u.v.a. Weiter finden sich 'Ueber die früheste Bildung jungen Kinderseelen' von Campe, 'Diätetik der Schwangern' von Unzer, 'Von Gymnastik und Leibesübungen' von Villaume, 'Ueber den Unterricht in Sprachen' von Trapp und 'Von der Nothwendigkeit öffentlicher Schulen und von ihrem Verhältnisse zu Staat und Kirche'. Band 9 enthält unter dem Titel 'Handbuch der Erziehung' eine neue Übersetzung (durch L. E. G. Rudolphi) von John Lockes 'Some thoughts concerning the education of children' mit Anmerkungen von Campe.
