        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.

        The Trial of Thomas Paine, For a Libel, Contained in the Second Part of Rights of Man, Before Lord Kenyon, and a Special Jury, At Guildhall, December 18. With the Speeches of the Attorney General and Mr. Erskine, at Large.

      London: C. and G. Kearsley, 1792. Pamphlet, 8vo, 20th century full polished green calf ruled in gilt, spine lettered in gilt, gilt inner dentelles, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt; bound by Bayntun-Riviere, [2], 45 pp. (lots of extra new endpapers bound in). Bookplate, some scattered light foxing to contents, title page a bit soiled, pages 37 & 38 trimmed close at the margin, but no loss, normal aging; very good. Thomas Paine (1738-1809) was one of the most important political thinkers during the Age of Revolution. His writings even attacked the Constitution of England and referred to George III as "the royal brute of England." However, his Rights of Man, Part Second earned him trial for seditious libel, which he was found guilty of. This is one of the earliest accounts of the trial of Thomas Paine for his publication of Part II of the Rights of Man. Nice copy in an attractive binding. DAB.

        The English Entomologist, exhibiting all the Coleopterous Insects found in England ... Entomologist Anglois ouvrage ou l'on a rassemble tous les Insectes Coleopteres qui se trouvent en Angleterre ... [Signed copy]

      London: W. Bulmer / Shakspeare Press, 1792. [iv], 33; [iv], 41, [iv], 2 engraved titles, 2 engraved plates of medals, 42 fine hand-col stipple engravings. 4to. HB. Fine copy bound in cont. half morocco, marbled boards + endpapers, raised bands to spine, gilt dec. compartments, aeg. Some inoffensive discolouration to leather on rear cover. Browning/offsetting to engraved titles; light spotting to rear endpapers, else clean. Wide margins (340x280mm). Book-plate of James Stewart of Alltyrodyn. English dedication signed by Thomas Martyn.. English and French text bound together. Very scarce. [Nissen 2725/2726; Horn-Schenkling 14665]Thomas Martyn (1735-1825) 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).

        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.

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.

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. With engraved frontispiece portrait (of William Murray, first Earl of Mansfield, to whom the work is dedicated). Text in Latin. Brueggemann, 587. Lowndes, 1114. Bookplates, including armorial bookplate of Samuel Bradshaw. Small inkstamps. Bookbinder's small ticket in Volume II.Foxing to preliminary blank leaves, otherwise generally quite clean.

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?"

        Act Governing the Western Territories

      1792 - UNITED STATES CONGRESS. An Act respecting the Government of the Territories of the United States North West and South of the River Ohio. Second Congress of the United States: At the First Session, begun and held at the City of Philadelphia, in the State of Pennsylvania, on Monday the twenty-fourth of October one thousand seven hundred and ninety-one. [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). OCLC lists one copy. NAIP shows three copies: American Antiquarian Society, New York Public Library, and Rhode Island Historical Society. Evans 24902. This copy from the library of Stephen Row Bradley, the first United States Senator from the newly admitted state of Vermont. An influential supporter of Jefferson and Madison, Bradley was senator from 1791-1795, and again from 1801-1813. With contemporary inked notations in the left corners.Faint creasing to corners, lightest edge-wear. A near-fine copy of this rare and important document on the American frontier.

        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. "

        An Account of the Pelew Islands Composed from the Journals Of Captain Henry Wilson

      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.

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).
