        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.

        Sketches.

      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.

        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.

        Neue Reise nach West-Indien, Bossu, 1774-76

      Bossu Jean B., 1720-1792 - Neue Reise nach West-Indien, Bossu, 1774-76 Neue Reisen nach West-Indien. Bossu, Jean-Bernard (1720-1792) Darinnen Nachrichten von der Religion, der Regierungsart, den Sitten, der Handlung und den Kriegen der Völker enthalten, die an dem grossen Flusse Saint Louis, der gemeiniglich der Mißißippi genannt wird, wohnen. Aus dem Französischen übersetzt. 2 Teile in 1 Band. Helmstedt, Johann Heinrich Kühnlin, 1774-1776. 8°. 1: 7 Bl., 207 S.; 2: 192 S. Marmorierter Pappband d. 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. Quelle: Wikipedia Jean Bernard Bossu (1720–1792) Jean Bernard Bossu was a French captain and adventurer who explored the region of the Mississippi River while Louisiana was a French colony. During his voyages, Bossu wrote extensive letters about his adventures among the natives of the Mississippi River Valley.

        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.

      1792-1793 ca 1792 - Lés d?un voile de gaze cousus (288 x 130 cm), monté sur toile. Très belle pièce révolutionnaire. Décor pinceauté gouaché du président Pétion devant l?autel de la patrie sur lequel est inscrit « Droits de l?homme » et « Autel de la Liberté », fermé par un quart de cercle en niche entre des pilastres avec les inscriptions « Pétion président de la Convention Nationale », « 22 septembre 1792 », surmontés de pots à feu, devant une colonne sur laquelle repose les armoiries de la ville d?Aubusson, sous une couronne murale et sous la devise « Inter Spinas Floret », sur fond terre brulée et au dessus de l?inscription « Citoyens, la Convention a décrété la République, l?Égalité et la Souveraineté du Peuple Vive la Liberté ! ». La commande est probablement celle d?un marchand mercier parisien, qui a voulu relancer la production de tapisseries à Aubusson et sauver son entreprise de la faillite en présentant ce carton à la Convention. Jérôme Pétion de Villeneuve (1756-1794), natif de la région de Chartres, élu député du Tiers en 1789, ami de Robespierre, chef de file des Jacobins, élu maire de Paris le 14 novembre 1791, démissionne de ses fonctions de maire pour devenir président de la Convention le 22 septembre 1792, se heurte alors à Robespierre et s?allie aux Girondins. Après l?insurrection du 2 juin 1793, il est décrété d?arrestation et s?évade le 24 juin pour la Normandie, puis Saint-Émilion. Tué d?un coup de pistolet le 18 juin 1794, son cadavre est retrouvé, à moitié dévoré par les loups. Bonne fraîcheur des coloris et bel état de conservation. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

By this time the situation in St. Domingue was spinning rapidly out of control. Rare, as all printing from the Caribbean is, with no copies in OCLC. Not in Roquincourt.

        The Natural History of British Insects; explaining them in their several states, with the periods of their transformations . together with the history of such minute insects as require investigation by the microscope.

      - London, printed for the author, 1792-1813. 16 volumes, bound in 8. Royal-8vo (235 x 145mm). With 576 engraved plates of which 569 beautifully handcoloured. Contemporary red half morocco, spines with gilt insect ornaments, lines and lettering. A fine copy of the first edition. The work was first intended to comprise only 10 volumes; these are the ones which are more commonly found. At a later date it was decided to publish another 6 volumes, which are much rarer to find. Together with the work of Curtis, the most attractive publication on British Entomology. The plates are exquisitely handcoloured and each depicts one single species, of which some are described for the first time. The few plain plates, as in all copies, mostly show anatomical detail. "Donovan was a talented and faithful illustrator, and his figures are noteworthy for their vivid - if sometimes a little too vivid - colours. His 'Natural History' does not treat insects systematically, however. His beetles, flies, moths and bugs follow one another in no particular order. In the course of it Donovan described a number of new species which often still bear the name he bestowed on them. The work includes all sixty-two British butterflies then known."(Salmon, The Aurelian Legacy p. 130). The text leaf to plate 191 has not been bound in.Provenance: Armorial bookplate of (the Earl of) Northampton.Nissen ZBI, 1142. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

A rare item printed at Cayes on the southwestern peninsula of the island of Saint Domingue, in the Southern Department.

        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. Nabgolts, 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 Montesquieu's work 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. The Lettres persanes was an immediate success and often imitated. In Russia the text widely circulated among upper classes, however, it was available only in original French or other Western European languages, until the first Russian translation by Fiodor Pospelov was published in 1789. It was followed closely by the present edition with the text newly translated by retired collegiate councillor Efim Roznotovskiy (1737-1792). Very rare. WorldCat locates two copies only - in Harvard and Cambridge University library. Sopikov 6303; Rodossky 632; Svodnyi Katalog XVIII 4334.

Spines lightly stained; some minor stains in the text; very good set, in original state.. More bibliographical details available upon request. 5 vols in 3, 8vo, contemporary tan quarter calf, decorated paper boards, yellow and green leather labels, gilt lettering. A fine sammelband of important French translations of works by and relating to Edmund Burke and his controversial Reflections on the Revolution in France. The first part of Rights of Man is especially notable because the first English edition was suppressed almost immediately upon publication, and subsequent English editions were revised to remove objectionable passages. This first French edition, translated by François Soulés, was published within three months of the English edition; it retained Paine’s original language, and as well it contained a new preface by Paine. The second part, which elaborates on the first, was published in February 1792. The Priestley pamphlet and Burke’s response to it contain lengthy prefaces by the French translators on the background of the controversy.

It has been attacked [by]... some Johnsonian scholars...Nonetheless, later scholarship has properly supplemented but never supplanted Life's basic vision, and has drawn upon Boswell's work as a central source even in those challenges to aspects of its representation.

        COMMENTARIES ON THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, WITH THAT CONSTITUTION PREFIXED, IN WHICH ARE UNFOLDED, THE PRINCIPLES OF FREE GOVERNMENT, AND THE SUPERIOR ADVANTAGES OF REPUBLICANISM DEMONSTRATED. BY JAMES WILSON, L.L.D....AND BY THOMAS M'KEAN, L.L.D....

      London: Printed for J. Debrett, J. Johnson, and J.S. Jordan, 1792. Half title. Three-quarter speckled calf and marbled boards in antique style. Small chip to upper margin of first text leaf. Very good. This is the rare London edition of the speeches in favor of the United States Constitution made during the debates concerning its ratification by the State of Pennsylvania. It follows the Philadelphia printings of 1787 and 1788 (same sheets as the 1787 with a new titlepage), and in fact Sabin and Ford assert this London edition is a reissue of the remainder of the 1788 edition, and that "merely the preliminary leaves and p.20-23 appear to have been printed in England." Although it was initially promised that both the speeches for and against the Constitution in the Pennsylvania ratifying convention would be printed, only one volume, the one containing the arguments favoring adoption, was ever printed. This was the result of a neat political trick; the Federalists proposed a two- volume format with the pro and con arguments in each one, an arrangement accepted by the other side. The Federalists then voted down funding of the proposed second volume that was to contain anti-Constitution arguments, preventing its publication. These speeches are of primary importance in the creation of the Constitution, since Pennsylvania was a key state in the ratification process. The two main Federalist speakers were two of the primary architects of the Constitution, James Wilson (Associate Justice of the Supreme Court and University of Pennsylvania law professor) and Thomas M'Kean (Chief Justice of Pennsylvania). This London edition is quite rare on the market and is little known; Howes, for example, does not list it. There have been only two copies in the market since 1940: one sold by this firm in 2013 and one offered by Goodspeed's. SABIN 104627. FORD, FEDERAL CONSTITUTION 91. COHEN 2966. HOWES L407 (ref).

        Notizie istoriche de' Comici italiani che fiorirono intorno all'anno MDL fino a' giorni presenti.

      Opera ricercata, raccolta ed estesa da F.B. Accademico d'onore Clementino. Padova, per li Conzatti a S.Lorenzo, 1792, - 2 vol. in-8, pp. XII, (2), 305, (2); 291, (9); leg. coeva cartone rustico, titolo ms. ai dorsi, in elegante astuccio mezza perg. moderno. Delizioso antiporta inciso raffig. un mimo. Prima edizione di quella che è considerata la più autorevole fonte per la storia della commedia dell'arte e del teatro settecentesco in particolar modo; il Bartoli, commediografo ed attore egli stesso, conobbe di persona gran parte dei personaggi che tratta. Anche la sezione relativa ai secoli XVI e XVII è una testimonianza unica per la ricchezza delle informazioni, solo a tratti inesatta, date le fonti perlopiù verbali alle quali attingeva. L'originale profilo interpretativo, che capovolge l'impostazione delle precedenti storie del teatro, rivolte essenzialmente alla biografia degli autori, oltre che la notevole forma letteraria, rende l'opera di eccezionale importanza. Il Bartoli (1745-1806) dedicò ben 8 anni alla stesura dei "Comici", ma fu attore, scenografo ed autore di commedie, nonché di monografie artistiche su Bergamo e Rovigo. Bellissimo esempl. a pieni margini. SCHLOSSER MAGNINO p. 538. RASI, COMICI, p. 281-87: ?si acquistò a buon diritto il nome di Plutarco de?Comici? RASI, 290: ?Raro?. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
