        GLOBO CELESTE Calcolato per il corrente anno sulle Osservazioni de' Sigg. Flamsteed, e de la Caille. ROMA presso la Calc.a Cam.le 1792

      1792. " - EDIZIONE ORIGINALE, COLORITURA COEVA - Giovanni Maria Cassini (1745 - 1824) fu un costruttore di globi, geografo, incisore e cartografo italiano. La sua opera principale fu il Nuovo Atlante Geografico Universale del 1792 - 1801. Nel 1790 la Calcografia Camerale di Roma pubblicò I suoi dodici fusi per globo terrestre, aggiornato secondo le ultime rilevazioni effettuate durante I tre viaggi attorno al mondo del Capitano inglese James Cook. I dodici fusi celesti furono pubblicati nel 1792. Il globo celeste è basato sulle osservazioni astronomiche di Flamsteed e Lacaille, e rappresenta tutte le costellazioni allora conosciute con le stelle di grandezza variabile secondo la loro magnitudo. Sono invece del 1792 le cinque tavole (43,7 x 57,7 cm ), attualmente rarissime e ricercate opere d'antiquariato, che riproducono i dodici spicchi di 30 gradi di A. R. d'ampiezza che, una volta ritagliati e incollati su di una sfera di legno e cartapesta del diametro di 35 cm, compongono l'intero globo celeste; nel cartiglio posto al centro di uno degli spicchi, tra Boote e il Monte Menalo, si legge "GLOBO CELESTE Calcolato per il corrente anno sulle Osservazioni de' Sigg. Flamsteed, e de la Caille. ROMA presso la Calc.a Cam.le 1792" . Quattro delle cinque tavole sono destinate a rappresentare le costellazioni, queste sono le stesse che troviamo nei due planisferi, nominate in lingua italiana dell'epoca , disegnate però di spalle in proiezione convessa , pronte per essere incollate su di una sfera di circa trentacinque centimetri di diametro. Le costellazioni non tolemaiche sono in numero notevole: Antinoo, la Chioma di Berenice, la Giraffa, il Liocorno, La Mosca, il Cuor di Carlo II, il Monte Menalo, la Renna, il Cerbero, l'Oca, la Volpe, i Levrieri, la Lince, il Leone minore, il Triangolo minore, la Lucerta, la Colomba, la Croce, con il termine la Nuvola le due nubi di Magellano, il Liocorno, il Sestante, lo Scudo di Sobieski, le dodici costellazioni di Bayer - Keyser - Houtman, le quattordici (quindici se gli si accredita la Musca) di Lacaille e il Solitarius di Le Monnier denominato in italiano il Passero Solitario. Il reticolo di riferimento è ridotto al minimo presentando soltanto i Circoli Polari, i Circoli dei Tropici, l'Eclittica, l'Equatore. Manca il reticolo per la lettura della Declinazione e dell'Ascensione Retta; l'Equatore e l'Eclittica riportano una scala graduata in tacche di un grado numerate progressivamente di dieci in dieci, la numerazione dell'Eclittica ricomincia da capo ogni 30 gradi per rispettare i confini delle costellazioni zodiacali. (cfr. F. Stoppa, Atlas Colestis, http://www.atlascoelestis.com/casglob%20Pagina.htm) Giovanni Maria Cassini, Chierico Regolare Somasco fu geografo e cartografo, ma anche intagliatore di architetture e prospettive - uno dei migliori discepoli di Giovanni Battista Piranesi - Cassini fu uno degli ultimi sferografi italiani del Settecento ed i suoi globi ebbero una notevole diffusione, come pure questo ""Nuovo Atlante Geografico""." - FIRST EDITION, CONTEMPORARY OUTLINE COLOUR - Giovanni Maria Cassini (1745 - 1824) was an Italian globe maker, geographer, engraver, and cartographer. His main cartographic work was the Nuovo Atlante Geografico Universale of 1792 - 1801. In 1790, the Calcografia Camerale of Rome published his twelve terrestrial globe gores that updated the world cartography after the three voyages of Captain James Cook around the globe. The twelve celestial globe gores were published in 1792. The celestial globe was based upon the astronomical observations of Flamsteed and Lacaille, and depict all known constellations with stars varying in size according to their magnitude. Cassini was geographer and cartographer but he was also good at engraving architectural items and perspectives - he was one of the best disciples Giovanni Battista Piranesi had. Moreover, Cassini was one of the last artists to engrave spheres in the XVIII century and his globes were quite famous and widespread, and realized the most important Italian Atlas of the XVIII century; his maps always bear a cartouche, extremely rich in colours and details. Copperplate with fine original hand colour, some foxing, otherwise in very good condition. The Cassini's Atlas was reprinted by the Calcografia Camerale in the first quarter of XIXth century (before 1839). Only the first edition of the atlas is printed on contemporary laid paper, while the late issue are on XIXth century paper and often without colour.

        Elements of the Philosophy of the Human Mind.

      Printed for A. Strahan and T. Cadell, London 1792 - Half-title + TP + Dedication Page + 1 leaf = Advertisement + [ix]-xii = Contents + [1]-566 (misnumbered for 569) + [570] = errata, Quarto (9" x 11¾"). First Edition, Presentation Copy.A presentation copy with the front free endpaper beautifully inscribed "From the Author". ON the inside front cover is the contemporary signature "Benjamin Vaughan". NOTE: This presentation inscription is likely by the author himself although comparisons with the writing in two other rather dissimilar presentation inscriptions sold over the years (by Pickering & Chatto in 2009 and Quaritch in 2012), both alleged to be in the author's hand do not provide conclusive evidence that this inscription was actually written by Dugald Stewart. (Copies of those two other inscriptions available upon request.)The recipient of this copy was Benjamin Vaughan (1751-1835), the Anglo-American diplomat and political economist, who probably met Stewart while studying medicine at the University of Edinburgh, where Stewart was professor of moral philosophy. Vaughan was born in Jamaica, and later in life retired in Hallowell, Maine, but his education and professional years were spent in England, where he became friends with Benjamin Franklin and influenced British relations with the United States. As a follower of Lord Shelburne's party, he was acquainted with all the British supporters of the American colonists -- Paine, Priestly and Tooke -- and in the year he received the present volume, he became a member of Parliament. His political career was abruptly halted in 1794 by his flight to France in consequence of an investigation by the Cabinet of the activities of American Independence enthusiasts in England. He arrived in Paris to find the Terror in full force and himself in even greater danger than he would have been had he remained in England, and he escaped to Geneva. Vaughan was thus closely involved with both of the great revolutions of his day. (Edna Vosper, writing in the D.A.B.) Stewart was the philosopher "with whom the Scottish philosophy of common sense acquired the dignity of an institution" (EP, VIII, p. 16). This, his main philosophical exposition, was also his first work and, despite the addition of two further volumes in 1814 and 1827, it remained his most important philosophical contribution. Stewart succeeded Ferguson to the chair of moral philosophy in Edinburgh in 1785 and followed in the footsteps of his teacher Thomas Reid who had espoused "the philosophy of common sense". "Stewart saw himself as following Reid in a Baconian reformation of the philosophy of mind. Natural philosophy became science, he held, when inquiry, freed from metaphysical conjecture, was directed toward discovering by observation and experiment the laws governing the connection of physical phenomena" (EP, VIII, p. 16). Stewart's pupils included James Mill (father of John Stuart) and he influenced both of the Mills (who attacked the Scottish school of common sense) and William James whose preface to The Varieties of Religious Experience explicitly credits Stewart's philosophy as an important influence on his own. Original boards, worn and flaking just a bit spots. Professionally rebacked in an appropriate tan format and a newly printed label. An absolutely beautiful uncut and wide-margined copy.

        [AUTOGRAPH LETTER, SIGNED TWICE, FROM MARINUS WILLETT, RELAYING THE EVENTS SURROUNDING PROMISED PAYMENT OF BLANKETS TO THE ONEIDA INDIANS IN 1781]

      [N.p.], 1792. [1]p. on. folio sheet. Several folds, top and left edges trimmed close with partial loss of a few letters. Very good. Marinus Willett (1740-1830) served in the French and Indian War as well as the American Revolution. After several ups and downs in his commission and assignments, Willett found himself as a colonel in command of the New York militia tasked with the defense of the Mohawk Valley. After the Revolution, Willett served in the New York State Assembly, as Sheriff of New York County (twice), American emissary to the Creek Indians (resulting in the Treaty of New York), and later as Mayor of New York City. It was during his second stint as Sheriff of New York County that this particular letter was written. In the letter, Willett relates the circumstances around which he promised blankets to a party of Oneida Indians in October of 1781, during the latter days of the Revolutionary conflict, and likely during the Battle of Johnstown. The letter reads, in full: "I do hereby certify that on a pursuit of the enemy in the County of Montgomery the latter end of October in the year 1781. In order to stimulate a party of the Oneida Indians then with me, I promised in case of exerting themselves to overtake the enemy who were put to flight that they should each of them have a blanket - That in consequence of this promise they began a vigorous pursuit and in a short time overtook and killed a number of the enemy - That at my return it was not in my power to comply with the promise I had made in behalf of the public. Nor have I since been able to have that engagement complied with. New York January 26th, 1792. M. Willett. Note there were sixty Indians in the party. M. Willett." A lengthy and interesting recounting of an incident involving Willett's Revolutionary command and Native Americans in New York, signed twice by the Revolutionary leader.

        Carta de navegar de las Islas del Rey, o de las Perlas, comprehendidas en la ensenada de Panama

      1792 - Rare separately issued map of Panama. 1792. Madrid. Excellent condition. 316 mm x 386 mm. 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 –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.

      J. Harris, London 1792 - Dedicated with Permission to H.W. Bunbury Esqr. By his much obliged humble servt. John Harris. Engraved dedication with vignette at front of first part and both parts with four soft-ground etched plates each with multiple images by J. Baldrey after Morland, protected by original tissue guards. Two parts (No.1 and 2). Folio. [420 x 570 mm]. Each in original blue sugar paper wrappers with cream paper backstrips, engraved label on the front with the numbers added in manuscript, and contemporary ink signature of Louisa O'Callaghan at the head. (Partly detached, edges creased). [ebc4723] London: published by J. Harris, No28 Gerrard Street, Soho, 1792. The edges of the plates are frayed and a little dusty, but it is rare to find works of this size and nature in the original wrappers, as they were issued. These are the first two numbers of a series published by Harris between 1792 and 1799. The first number is dated 1st January 1792 and the second is 1st March 1792. I have not been able to trace a complete run. World Cat describes a single copy in Brooklyn Museum Library with a date range 1792-1794 and 1798-1799, comprising parts 1, 2, 4, 7 and 11. COPAC directs one to Cambridge University Library, which has an imcomplete holding of 33 plates. The British Museum has the dedication leaf for no.1, two plates from sketchbook 5, dated 1793 and a plate dated 1797 from a late sketchbook (11-17). It describes the printing technique as "crayon manner and soft ground etching". The images are of rural and domestic scenes created after Morland (1763-1804) moved to the village of Paddington in about 1790.

An important pair of rare journals of the Senate from the Second Congress. These important early Congressional documents, describe the actions of the Senate in late 1791 and early 1792, at the height of the Federalist and Anti-Federalist struggle. George Washington's address to Congress, printed here, contains an interesting note about the tax on distilled spirits. Protests to this tax would result in the Whiskey Rebellion of 1794. Also contains important early legislation on frontier defenses, Ohio, fisheries, lighthouses, the Mint, and militias. "First edition, first issue of the rare journal containing numerous messages from Pres. Washington.official ratification[s] of the Bill of Rights, the Presidential Succession Act debate and passage, the establishment of the U.S. mint and coinage, the first militia act, and foundation Northwest Territory Acts" - Jenkins. Bound with the first is the Senate journal from the second session of the Second Congress. The Fugitive Slave Act of 1793 was passed in this session of the Senate. The second Senate also passed the Judiciary Act of 1793, further defining the structure of the judicial system of the fledgling nation.

        The Trial of Thomas Paine, for a Libel, Contained in the 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: Printed for C. and G. Kearsley, 1792. 8vo. (ii), 45, (1) pp. Later plain buff wrappers. Very good. The first part of Thomas Paine's Rights of Man appeared in 1791 without provoking much of a reaction from the British government. The second part appeared a year later and proved more incendiary, with Pitt's administration seeking to quash the propagation of such radical thought in the politically charged years after the French Revolution. Paine was charged with seditious libel and though he fled to France, was tried in absentia. Thomas Erskine made a long and impassioned plea in court on his behalf, but Paine was nevertheless found guilty. The government's success led to similar show trials in the succeeding years as they attempted to stamp down on the activities and public utterances of similar freethinkers. One of a number of published accounts of the trial to appear at the time, this example earlier than most with a 1792 imprint and one of two published by the Kearsleys.

Zt., "Teil 1 (1776): "Neue von dem Verfasser durchsehen und verbesserte Auflage"- das ist die Titelauflage der ersten deutschen 1771 in Frankfurt und Leipzig [=Helmstedt, Kühnlin] erschienenen Übersetzung, das Kupfer wurde der vorliegenden Ausgabe nicht mehr beigegeben; Teil 2 (1774): Erste deutsche Ausgabe. Der frz. Marineoffizier Bossu (1720-1792) besuchte dreimal Louisiana, wo er sich insgesamt 13 Jahre aufhielt. Hier sind die Beschreibungen von seinen ersten beiden Aufenthalten in den Jahren 1751/62 enthalten, die unter dem Titel "Nouveaux voyages aux Indes Occidentales" 1768 in Paris herauskamen. "In Briefform, schlicht und knapp, teilte er seine Beobachtungen mit; im Mittelpunkt stehen die Ausführungen über die verschiedenen Indianerstämme im Bereich des unteren und mittleren Mississippi, wie die Natchez, Arkansas, Illinois, Alabama, Choktaw, Atakapa u.a., deren Sprache er sich aneignete, so daß er sich die Richtigkeit gewisser Beobachtungen von den Eingeborenen selbst bestätigen lassen konnte. Flora und Fauna, Anbauprodukte und Boden finden Berücksichtigung" (Henze I, S. 306). Jean Bernard Bossu (geb. 29. September 1720 in Baigneux-les-Juifs, gest. 1792 in Montbard) war ein Kapitän in der französischen Marine, Abenteuerer und Forschungsreisender. Er reiste mehrfach nach Neufrankreich, wo er die Regionen entlang des Mississippi erforschte. Bossu war Mitglied einer Militärexpedition, die 1750 als Verstärkung nach New Orleans beordert wurde. Die Flotte brach am 26. Dezember in Frankreich auf und erreichte Mitte Februar Cap François in der französischen Kolonie Saint-Domingue. Nach einem kurzen Aufenthalt reiste sie am 8. März nach New Orleans, wo sie Anfang April eintraf. In den folgenden Jahren erforschte er den Mississippi bis hinein nach Illinois und den Unterlauf des Arkansas. Von den Quapaw, mit denen er eine Zeitlang lebte, wurde er zu einem Mitglied ihres Stammes ernannt. 1757 kehrte er nach Frankreich zurück und wurde noch im gleichen Jahr zurück nach New Orleans beordert. Dort entsandte ihn der Gouverneur Louis Billouart nach Fort Toulouse des Alibamons an der Ostgrenze der französischen Kolonie Louisiana und 1759 nach Fort Tombecbe. Im Januar 1763 kehrte Bossu nach Frankreich zurück. 1770 reiste Bossu zum dritten und letzten Mal nach Louisiana, das aufgrund des Franzosen- und Indianerkrieges inzwischen nicht mehr zum französischen Kolonialreich gehörte und besuchte dort die Quapaw. 1771 kehrte er von seiner letzten Reise in die Neue Welt nach Frankreich zurück und ließ sich dann in Burgund nieder. Er lebte eine Zeitlang in Auxerre und später bei einem Neffen in Aisey-sur-Seine und verstarb schließlich 1792 in Montbard. Zu seinen ersten beiden Reisen verfasste Bossu ausführliche Berichte in Form von Briefen, die er dann Jahre später nach seiner Rückkehr nach Frankreich 1768 veröffentlichte. Die Eindrücke seiner dritten Reise veröffentlichte er 1777. Bossu erweist sich als aufmerksamer Beobachter, und seine Schilderungen von New Orleans, der französischen Kolonie und der ihn ihr lebenden Indianerstämme sind eine bedeutende zeitgenössische Quelle für Historiker und Ethnologen.

        Copia de extracto del Diario de la Campaña ejecutada por las Goletas Sutil, y Mexicana al mando de los Capitanes de Fragata Dn Dionisio Galeano, y Don Cayetano Valdes por el Estrecho, o canal de Juan de Fuca de fecha de 23 de Octre de 1792

      1792 - Exeptional manuscript of Galiano and Valdes´s exploration of the North West Passage, signed at Monterrey. 1792. Puerto de Monterrey. In folio (310 mm x 210 mm). 14 ff. Unbound. Lower inner corner eaten, affecting partially 3 to 4 lines of text, with loss of words, other than that in very good condition. A fascinating manuscript by Galeano and Valdes, detailing the campaign on board the Sutil and Mexicana around the Fuca Strait. The relation´s title reads Extract of the diary of the Campaign executed by the vessels Sutil y Mexicana under the command of Frigate Captains Dn Dionisio Galiano, and Don Cayetano Valdes through the Strait, or channel of Juan de Fuca´. Galeano (1760 – 1805) was a Spanish military officer, sailor, scientist, cartographer, and explorer; from a young age, he participated in Spanish overseas campaigns and exploration (including a survey of the Falklands, following the attempt made by Bougainville to appropriate them, and one of the Magellan Strait, under the command of Tofiño de San Miguel). Upon his return to Spain, he wrote the Memoria sobre las observaciones de latitud y longitud en el mar (1796). Valdes (1767 – 1835) was also a Spanish navy officer and explorer, who rose to Captain General of the Spanish Navy. Together, they lead the first circumnavigation of Vancouver island. By 1789, Galiano and Valdes enrolled in the scientific and political expedition lead by Captain Alejandro Malaspina, onboard the Descubierta y Atrevida, which followed the steps of Captain James Cook and La Perouse. The aim of the expedition was to study the hydrography, astronomy, and natural history of the region; it profited from the skilled artist Cardero and Brambila, to capture in images what was experienced and seen. The expeditioners arrived to Acapulco where new orders were received from the Viceroy; initially, different officers were appointed for the task, however Malaspina arranged for Captains Galeano and Valdes to lead the expedition –leaving his command- on board the Mexican-built schooners Sutil and Mejicana, with orders to survey and reconnoitre the Northwest and the Strait of Juan de Fuca, in search for the existence of a Northwest Passage. Both were shallow-draft vessels, allowing the expeditioners to get close to the shores and sail in shallow canals. The expedition visited Nootka Sound (which was then splendidly portrayed by Cardero) and Esquimal Bay, encountering Captain George Vancouver. The results of the expedition were published in 1802 under the title Relacion del viage hecho por las goletas Sutil y Mexicana en el año de 1792 para reconocer el estrecho de Fuca, a “masterly work” (Hill), almost always attributed to Espinosa y Tello. This manuscript is one of the copies made by the explorers, which were sent to the Viceroy of New Spain, the Archives in Spain, or to be kept for themselves, it was definitely not to be spread around; the safe-guarding of explorational, scientific, and navigational findings and keeping them a secret, was paramount. The manuscript begins in “Nutca”, saying that once the works on the Goletas were concluded and the clocks set on march, they set sail during the night of the 2nd; the authors then provide information on the unnaccurate charts in existance, and the drafting of new ones; continues with they company of Tataa, a local Indian Chief, who came on board the Mexicana, goes on narrating what was seeing, done, experienced, and observed, during the journey. It is written in a clear and legible hand, only obstructed by the damaged caused to the paper. Overall, a fascinating narrative, of one of the most significant explorations of Vancouver Island and the Fuca Strait, very rich in contents and full of relevant information. At no part thus the author refer to anything else but concrete information on the evolution of the mission. Very rare, we haven´t been able to find any other manuscript accounts of this exploration having sold at auction.
