        Coltivazione e Governo del Lino Marzuolo

      Fine engraved title & 12 finely engraved plates. 1 p.l., viii, 80 pp. Large 4to, orig. semi-stiff boards, many edges uncut. Vicenza: D. Bardella, 1792. First edition of this handsomely illustrated work which describes the cultivation of the land to grow flax, and the entire process - harvesting, retting, breaking, scutching, cleaning, spinning, weaving, and bleaching - of flax to manufacture linen. The twelve plates depict methods of cultivation and processing of flax, including the tools employed and workers in contemporary dress. Flax was, without any competitor, the most important of all vegetable fibers until the close of the 18th century when cotton took its place as the supreme vegetable fiber of commerce. Trecco (1747-1830), abbot at the cathedral at Vicenza, was greatly interested in improving the agricultural methods used in Italy. His tireless efforts won him considerable local fame. Fine and handsome copy in original state.

        Il Piemonte e la Savoja con parte del Genovesato.

      Venezia, 1792 - Incisione in rame di mm 310x400, colorata d'epoca ai confini. In basso a sinistra bel cartiglio figurato e dipinto.

La sua opera più importante è Atlante novissimo pubblicato tra il 1775 e il 1789. Buon eseplare.

        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, commanded by Lieutenant William Bligh. Including an account of the mutiny on board the said ship, and the subsequent voyage of part of the crew, the ship's boat, from Tofoa, one of the Friendly Islands, to Timor, a Dutch settlement in the East Indies

      printed for George Nicol, London 1792 - (12 3/8 x 9 5/8 inches). Stipple-engraved portrait frontispiece of Bligh by J. Condé after J. Russell, 7 engraved plates, charts and plans (comprising: 1 plate of a breadfruit, 2 folding plans, 4 charts [3 folding]), uncut. Expertly bound to style in half 18th century russia and contemporary marbled paper covered boards, spine gilt in 6 compartments, red morocco lettering piece in the second, the others with a repeat decoration in gilt First edition of the full official account of the Bounty expedition, the famous mutiny and Bligh's miraculous navigation to safety: a fine uncut copy. This work "includes a revised version of the text of Bligh's narrative of the mutiny, previously published in London in 1790 . This account was based upon Bligh's journal but was written, edited and seen through the press by James Burney, under the supervision of Sir Joseph Banks, during Bligh's absence from London while on his second breadfruit voyage on the Providence" (Hill [2004] p.48). The most remarkable part of the narrative is undoubtedly Bligh's account of the voyage in the Bounty's 23-foot launch. His achievement of safely navigating an open vessel packed with 19 men a distance of 4,000 miles without serious mishap is almost without parallel in the history of ocean travel. This copy is a lovely, wide-margined example. Cox, II p 305; Du Rietz 93; Ferguson 125; Hill (2004) 135; Mendelssohn II, 1117; Sabin 5910; Wantrup 62a. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

Since he believed the 'antiphlogistic hypothesis equally probable with the modified system of Stahl' he explains both...The text is divided into two Books, I. General Chemistry includes heat, construction of thermometers, combustion, methods of making experiments with gases, an account of balances and elective attractions; II. includes general principles of bodies, acids, metals, mineral combustibles, vegetable and animal products. The useful treatment in I. of thermometers and balances is not found in many texts."­Cole, p. 402­(describing the 1st ed.).

Quarto, contemporary full straight-grain green morocco, elaborately gilt-decorated spines and boards, raised bands, all edges gilt. $3200.First edition of Combe's "very magnificent and valuable" variorum edition of Horace, one of ancient Rome's greatest lyricists, one of only 25 to 30 large-paper copies, beautifully bound. "Exceedingly rare.""When [Horace] gets away from battles and triumphs, of gods and heroes and the whole machinery of Olympus, and turns to the familiar world in which he lives, he plays with a master hand upon the chords that vibrate in the breast of all men". Words cannot do justice to the exquisite polish of his verse, the crispness and terse vigor of his phrases, and the perfect choice of words". He, more than any other, makes antiquity live for us again". He is thus the most human of all the classic writers" (Peck, 845-46). Also a physician and numismatist, Charles Combe "had a taste for classical studies". In 1788 Combe began to work in conjunction with Mr. Henry Homer, fellow of Emmanuel College, Cambridge, upon an edition of Horace, with variorum notes". Combe's colleague died before the first volume was completed, and he finished the work alone". It was a fine specimen of typography" (DNB). "A very magnificent and valuable edition". In the compilation, the editors carefully collated the editio princeps [printed circa 1470] and seven Harleian manuscripts". It is supposed that there were 30 copies only struck off on a large paper, which are excessively rare" (Moss II:31-32); more recent estimates put the number of large-paper copies at 25.

        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

      London: J. Ridgway, 1792. Very good +. 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?"

[Philadelphia: Printed by Childs and Swaine, 1792]. Folio, original broadside leaf measures 8 by 13 inches, printed on recto, uncut. $6000.First official printing of this crucial May 1792 Act reasserting America's governance of the Northwest Territory against renewed incursions of the British and the "spectre of Indian war," one of only 30 slip law copies issued. A rare association copy from the library of New England's leading senator, Stephen Row Bradley.This rare first printing of a signal congressional Act, approved into law by Washington on May 8, 1792, marks an especially critical period in America's early frontier history. "Throughout 1792 there had been reason to belief that the King's Canadian officials". [intended] to enlarge British influence over the Indians of the Northwest". Conditions north of the Ohio had become desperate in the past year. The ugly spectre of Indian war hung everywhere. The northwest frontier had been receding steadily for more than two years" (Freeman, 614-5). Passed five years after the Northwest Ordinance first established the Northwest Territory, and only two years after the Southwest Ordinance extended into territory south of the Ohio River, this 1792 Act reaffirms governance of the embattled regions, still largely ruled under a form of martial law. The Act permits the territorial governor and judges to repeal laws when needed and authorizes territorial judges to hold courts, while further addressing the territory's "limitation act" of December 1788. Printed beneath this Act is a second law, one that provides payment to the heirs of a Revolutionary War colonel who was mortally wounded in the Battle of Wabash. One of approximately 30 copies issued in a slip law printing by Childs & Swaine, who had relocated to Philadelphia with the government in the 1790s, and printed "folio slip laws for the Congress as they had in New York." Pursuant to a 1789 resolution of Congress, such slip laws were typically issued "with no title pages, index numbers". within ten days of passage of any law," and provided the President with two copies to be sent to the governor of each state (Powell, 99, 87).

        A determined leader, George Washington lays the foundation for the duties of consuls and vice-consuls in our nation, as the United States begins to expand their foreign diplomatic relations

      New York, April 14, 1792. 8" x 13". "A bifolium broadside approved and signed in print by George Washington, as President of the United States. Three pages with an attractive heading on the first page, 8"" x 13"", published as an act on April 14, 1792. Proposed to the House of Representatives and the Senate to let the consuls in government have duties in port authority, as well as handling foreign debt. Very minor marginal wear, slight expected folds, else in very fine condition.As the first President of the United States, George Washington was concerned with the fledgling of his nation's role in the world. In this ""Act, concerning Consuls and Vice Consuls,"" Washington expressed how these government officials would exercise their duties to promote interests and citizens in foreign countries. Like Thomas Jefferson's circular to the sixteen consuls of the United States in 1790, Washington stressed the importance of these consuls holding port authority, stating ""That they shall have right in the ports or places to which they are or may be severally appointed of receiving the protests or declarations, which such captains, masters, crews, passengers and merchants, as are citizens of the United States may respectively choose to make there…"". In addition to the consul's primary role in port authority, they were also to be held responsible for collecting debts and transmitting the balance to the Treasury of the United States: ""…shall collect the debts due to the deceased in the country where he died, and pay the debts due from his estate as shall be of a perishable nature…and the balance of the estate they shall transmit to the treasury of the United States."" The act was immediately approved by Speaker of the House, Jonathan Trumbull, as well as the Vice President, John Adams. "

      Philadelphia: Joseph Crukshank, 1792. xx, 256 pp. “This was one of the most popular of all shipwreck narratives, partly because of the happy ending, of the adventure and partly because of the detailed descriptions of the Pelew Islands’ natural features and society... Wilson exercised excellent control over his men, dealt smoothly with the natives... The crew set to work to build a schooner from native lumber, while some of their members fought for their hosts in native wars...”— Huntress 107C. When they returned to England they took one of the Pelew Islanders, Prince Lee Boo, with them. He was a celebrity but unfortunately died of smallpox. This is the third American edition. Evans 24441.

      W. Bulmer / Shakspeare Press, London 1792 - [iv], 33; [iv], 41, [iv], 2 engraved titles, 2 engraved plates of medals, 42 fine hand-col stipple engravings. 4to. HB.

English and French text bound together. Very scarce. [Nissen 2725/2726; Horn-Schenkling 14665]Thomas Martyn (fl. 1779–1811) was a natural history illustrator and pamphleteer, said to be a native of Coventry, Warwickshire (Nichols, 8.432). Martyn developed a talent for coloured depictions of insects and shells. He purchased shells brought back from Cook's third voyage, and produced his splendid 'Universal Conchologist' (1784-7), the greatest of all books on shells. Turning to insects, Martyn produced his 'English Entomologist' (1792), followed by 'Aranei, or, A Natural History of Spiders' (1793), a quarto in two parts. It included much of Eleazar Albin's well-known work on English spiders, Martyn having purchased Albin's drawings at the sale of the dowager duchess of Portland's museum. 'Psyche: Figures of Non-Lepidopterous Insects' (1797) was probably produced privately and only about ten sets of its thirty-two stipple engravings are known to have been published. His only venture into botany, 'Figures of Plants' (1795), consisted of forty-three coloured plates without text or captions. Since Martyn's illustrations were hand-coloured he needed the assistance of professional artists, but, finding that miniaturists were unwilling to interrupt their normal work to paint shells and insects, he decided to recruit his own workforce and train boys to paint in a uniform style. His first boy joined him about 1779; others followed, and eventually he had ten young men at work in his ‘academy’ at 10 Great Marlborough Street, Westminster.(ODNB).

Choice coaching picture by sporting artist James Pollard (1792-1867). "More than any other artist, he brings to life the great days of the coaching era" - N.C. Selway. Son of engraver and print publisher Robert Pollard, James Pollard worked in the family business but was trained in painting, and was most active in the 1820s and 1830s, painting coaching scenes and racing pictures. He collaborated with John Hering on the celebrated The Doncaster Great St Leger series (1839). Pollard was "generally too busy to pay much attention to exhibiting; his works were shown on just three occasions at the Royal Academy between 1821 and 1839, and three times at the British Institution between 1824 and 1844" (ODNB). Sparrow writes that Pollard "had courage and a surprising amount of enterprise" (234). Cf.

        Carte de la Rade et des Iles d'Hyéres

      1792. - le carte edite dal Depot de la Marine - Per contrastare lo strapotere navale della flotta inglese re Luigi XIV comprese la necessita di dotare le sue navi di carte nautiche in grado di renderle competitive con la marina antagonista. Un primo tentativo si ebbe con il Neptune Francais del 1693, ma solo agli inizi del diciottesimo secolo iniziò una grande campagna di rilievo delle coste del Mediterraneo e di altri mari, che portò alla realizzazione di numerose mappe, raccolte nel Dépot des Cartes et Planes de la Marine del 1720. Tuttavia il fondatore dell'idrografia francese può essere considerato a tutti gli effetti Jacques Nicolas Bellin (1703 - 1772) che per oltre cinquant'anni fu al servizio della Marina quale ingegnere e cartografo, tanto che gli venne assegnato il titolo quale primo "Ingegnere Idrografo della Marina" e quindi addirittura quello di "Idrografo Reale". Durante il suo servizio gli furono commissionati i rilievi delle coste francesi prima e successivamente quelle di praticamente tutto il mondo conosciuto. La sua produzione fu immensa e le sue carte nautiche, di grande qualità, apparvero in più edizioni fino oltre la fine del diciottesimo secolo. Questo grande fondo cartografico diede vita alla produzione ed alla vendita di carte navali, prima basate su quelle del Bellin, successivamente ampliate e migliorate da altri ingegneri di marina, sia francesi che non. Le carte nautiche venivano vendute separatamente e recavano tutte l'inconfondibile timbro con l'ancora e le corone (quando regnava la monarchia) del Depot Generale de la Marine. Raccolte delle stesse carte venivano invece pubblicate sotto il nome di Neptune Francois, monumentale opera che ebbe numerosissime ristampe fino alla metà del secolo successivo. Il seguente gruppo di carte è tratto da un volume denominato Neptune de la Méditerranée, riguardante il Mediterraneo. Dove possibile sono indicati il nome del cartografo, spesso un capitano di vascello, e la data della carta. Incisioni in rame, in eccellente stato di conservazione, salvo controindicazioni. Grande carta nautica della Provenza Meridionale con la baia di Hyéres e il suo arcipelago, composto dalle isole di Porquerolles, Port Cros e Levant. Leggero alone d'umidità in basso. To fight against the powerful English fleet, king Louis XIV decided to endow his ships with nautical charts that could enable them to compete with the enemy. The Neptune Francais, in 1693, can be considered a first attempt, but it was only at the beginning of the Eighteenth century that a campaign of study of the Mediterranean coasts and sea was started, leading to the realization of maps, collected in the Dépot des Cartes et Planes de la Marine in 1720. Nevertheless, the real founder of French hydrography can be considered Jacques Nicolas Bellin (1703 - 1772), who served for more than fifty years the navy as engineer and cartographer, which win him first the title of "Hydrographer Engineer of the Navy" and then of "Royal Hydrographer". His first commitment was to study the French coasts fisrt, and then of the whole world. His production was massive and his nautical charts, due also to their quality, were published in many edition until the end of the XVIII century. This allowance led to the production and the selling of sea charts, at first based on those from Bellin, then developed by other navy engineers. The sea charts were sold separately, all bearing the stamp with the anchor and the crowns of the Depot Generale de la Marine. Collections of the same charts have been published under the name of Neptune Francois, a monumental work which has been reissued many times until the half of the following century. The following group of charts is taken from a volume entitled Neptune de la Méditerranée, about the Mediterranean sea.

        Loi Relative aux moyens de secourir la Colonie de Saint-Domingue. Donnée ? Paris, le 29 Juin 1792, l'an IV. de la Liberté. Consignée dans les registres du Départment de la Meurthe, le 24 Juillet suivant. [No. 1412]

      Nancy [France]: Chez Haener, Imprimeur du Départment de la Meurthe, 1792. First edition. Self wrappers. A very good copy with pin holes along inner margin, two soiled spots, signed in ink on last page.. 4 pp. Illus. with a woodcut headpiece. Signed (illegible). Law authorizing negotiation with the United States minister to obtain food and construction materials in the amount of 4,000,000 livres, to be paid by the French Treasury but to be reimbursed by taxes on the colony. The money was much needed as the loan decree, dated 26 Juin 1792, came in the midst of unparalleled upheaval in Haiti. The revolution of the year before, with its "horrible carnage" had now given way "to strategic military operations, tactical maneuvers and new political alliances as the slaves gain territory and stabilize their positions. They raid plantations for military equipment, loot the whites' forces after they are repelled, and trade with the Spanish for weaponry" (Kona Shen, History of Haiti, The Revolution Builds, Brown University. library.brown.edu/haitihistory/6.html). Toussaint Louverture is a rising star, Civil Commissions arrive from France, free blacks and mulattos in Saint-Domingue are granted equal political rights, Spain declares war on England and France, and battle ensues for control of Haiti. The U.S. is concerned with conditions on the island and in fact Jefferson writes of his concern to the Marquis de Lafayette (16 June 1792). Rare. OCLC, BN France, and other European Libraries locate no copies of this issue (No. 1412, with additional text concerning the Departement de la Meurthe). A Paris printing (No. 1813) can be found at Cornell, Univ. Minn., and JCB which also has a Toulouse printing. Manioc (Bibliotheque) shows a digitized version of the Paris imprint.

ÉDITION ORIGINALE FRANÇAISE. L'ouvrage a été traduit de l'anglais par Joseph-Gaspar Dubois-Fontanelle. L'édition originale a paru à Londres en 1784. «Elias HABESCI, né en Grèce, élevé à Constantinople, employé d'abord dans les bureaux du sérail, et ensuite dans ceux du Grand Vizir, a eu pour s'instruire des moeurs, des usages, des loix, du gouvernement civil et militaire, de la politique intérieure et extérieure des Turcs, des facilités qui ont manqué à la plupart des écrivains qui ont traité de cette matière. » (Avertissement du traducteur). Après avoir servi le Grand Vizir comme secrétaire sous le règne de Mustapha III de 1757 à 1774, Elias Habesci entra ensuite au service de la Russie. Son ouvrage contient une description de la ville de Constantinople et de sa police, de nombreux détails sur les moeurs et les coutumes des turcs, ainsi que sur le commerce de l'Empire Ottoman avec les pays européens. (Chadenat, 5767 - Hage-Chahine, 2077 - Boucher de La Richarderie, II, 93 - Pas dans Gay). BON EXEMPLAIRE en reliure d'époque de cet ouvrage peu commun. GOOD COPY.

        Discours prononcé à l'Assemblée Nationale par le ministre de la marine le 2 janvier 1792.

      A Paris, de l'Imprimerie Royale, 1792. 1792 1 vol. in-4° (250 x 195 mm.) de : 20, 22 pp. Demi-maroquin rouge à la bradel, dos lisse titré en lettres dorées, et orné de bonnets phrygiens, plats recouverts de papier marbré. (Reliure postérieure). Rare édition de ce discours de justification de Bertrand de Molleville prononcé deux mois avant la fin de son ministère. Antoine François Bertrand de Moleville (1744-1818) fut ministre de la Marine et des Colonies de Louis XVI du 7 octobre 1791 au 16 mars 1792. Son ministère fut controversé dès le début, et il fait l'objet de dénonciations du Conseil Général du Finistère (décembre 1791), puis du Comité de la Marine et des Colonies. Ces accusations portent essentiellement sur les congés accordés aux officiers de marine nobles, dont le seul but serait de quitter la France. Le ministre justifie donc de tous ces congés et affirme que son intention était de : « ramener des hommes égarés, en leur laissant le temps de reconnaître leur erreur, de rentrer dans le sein de leur patrie, & de venir remplir leurs devoirs de citoyens & de militaires. » Le discours ne porte pas l'effet escompté, et l'Assemblée dénonce par décret Bertrand-Molleville au roi qui ne tient pas compte de cet avertissement. Le discours du ministre est suivi des sept pièces justificatives contenant les accusations portées contre lui. De nombreux passages ont été soulignés à l'encre brune. On joint les Décrets de la Convention Nationale, Des 1er nivôse & 9 Pluviôse, an second de la république Française, une & indivisible. 1° Relatif aux Militaires qui se permettroient des propos tendant à exciter du trouble & à empêcher lincorporation des Citoyens de la première Réquisition dans les anciens Cadres. 2° Portant suppression des Régimens de la Marine. (Signé par DESTOURNELLES. GOHR), publié à Xantes, P. Toussaints, 1793. 1 f. (423 x 270 mm.) Bel exemplaire de ce texte qui expose les difficultés auxquelles le ministère de la Marine devait faire face après la Révolution Française.1 vol. 4to. Half red morocco. (later). Rare edition of this discourse by Bertrand de Moleville (1477-1818), French naval Minister, pronounced in front of the Assemblée as a defense against some accusations. Moleville was accused to help Navy officers from the French nobility to emigrate. The discourse is followed by the accusations (7parts). Fine copy of this text which shows the difficulties that the French Navy encounters after the Revolution.
