         Ensaio sobre a extensão dos limites da beneficencia a respeito, assim dos homens, como dos mesmos animaes [.].

      Lisbon, Regia officina typografica, 1793. - 8vo. XVI, 309, [3 blank] pp. With woodcut coat of arms of the Academia real das sciencias de Lisboa on title-page. Contemporary mottled, tanned sheepskin, richly gold-tooled spine, gilt edges. Very rare first and only edition of the Portuguese translation of a work on charity and philanthropy written by the Moravian count and traveller Leopold von Berchtold (1759-1809). It deals with the history and philosophy of philanthropy, and touches various subjects. There is a chapter on the improvement of the condition of black slaves, closing with a section on manumission, a chapter on prison reform and one on animal welfare. Berchtold also gives examples of charity among various societies, including the Turks, Arabs, Persians and Indians, probably drawing from his own experiences: Berchtold travelled through Europe and the Middle East for 17 years. Apparently Berchtold translated the book himself during his stay in Portugal, since he incorporated his observations on Portuguese charity and apologizes for the imperfections in his Portuguese. The original German work, Versuch die Gränzen der Wohlhätigkeit gegen Menschen und Thiere zu erweitern, was published in 1789 at Vienna. Berchtold also wrote several other works, mostly travel guides, of which his Essay to direct and extent the inquiries of patriotic travellers is his best known. - With the bookplate of "Livraria do Advogado, Abel Maria Jordão Paiva Mano" on pastedown, and a note on the blank final page stating the book was acquired at auction no 212, lot 340 of A.[rnaldo] H.[enriques] d'Oliv.[eira] in October of 1958. Binding worn along the extremities with wormholes in spine. Only slightly browned with some minor foxing. Overall a very good copy. Porbase (1 copy); Worldcat (5 copies); for the author: J. Stagl, A history of curiosity (1995), pp. 209-227. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

         Fables. With a life of the Author and embellished with 70 Plates.

      London: John Stockdale, 1793. 2 vols. in one, royal 8vo, xi, 225; vii, 187,(1, advertisement) pp. Engraved title to each part, frontispiece to vol. I, and 70 plates including 12 by Blake. Old calf rebacked, lower cover rehinged, scuffed and untidy, internally very good without the usual browning and offsetting. First edition with Blake’s plates. “The plates in this famous edition are free adaptations from the designs of Kent, Wootton, and Gravelot, who illustrated the earlier printings of Gay's Fables. William Blake completely redesigned, and redrew, the 12 images for which he is responsible, and is listed among the subscribers to the edition, as are the other engravers who worked on this project. Blake engraved the plates opposite pp. 1, 29, 59, 73, 99, 109, 125, 133 and 181 in volume one; and those opposite pp. 1, 105 and 145 in volume two.” (Sotheran’s). The first issue is easily identified because it uses the long “s” throughout and the second does not. Bentley, Blake Books, 460A. Essick, William Blake’s Commercial Book Illustrations, XXVI.

         Le vrai patineur, ou principes sur l'art de patiner avec grace, précédé de réflexions et de remarques critiques sur la manière de quelques patineurs inélégans, ainsi que sur les différens formes de patins, le choix quel'on doit en faire, et les variations dont cette chaussure est susceptible. Paris, Delespinasse, Delaunaux, Nepveu, the author (printed by Joseph-Gaspard Gillé fils), 1813. 12mo (18 x 10.5 cm). With 8 numbered engraved plates, namely a frontispiece view of a skating rink with many skaters, engraved by Ambroise Tardieu, and 7 images of individual skaters, each in a different pose. Set in roman and italic types, with a few lines in a "ronde" script type. Later blue paper wrappers. Preserved in modern half morocco slipcase.

      Foster, Bibliography of Skating 35; Lipperheide Thb 7; cf. Brown, Ice-Skating, pp. 57-64; for Gillé: Lane, Early type specimens, pp. 277-279; CERL Thesaurus. First edition of the first French ice-skating manual, describing many movements and poses with an emphasis on grace and form, illustrated with 8 engraved plates. Unlike English skaters, who advocated a more straightforward approach, Garcin compared skating with dancing, stressing grace and artistry rather than technique and precision. It is dedicated to Mademoiselle Gosselin, principal dancer at the Académie Imperial de Musique. One of the earliest separate works in any language devoted entirely to ice-skating.The printer, described only as Gillé fils, is better known as the typefounder and punchcutter Joseph-Gaspard Gillé, and the book therefore serves as a display of types that almost certainly come from his foundry. His father, also Joseph, was the leading French typefounder and punchcutter between Fournier and Didot, and Joseph-Gaspard produced some of the best types following the Didot style. He added a small printing office to the foundry ca. 1793. Among its few productions are several printed for Napoleon's Imperial government. Although awarded medals and honours in 1801 and 1808, Gillé went bankrupt in the year the present book appeared. He attempted to revive his firm in 1816 but remained in difficulties and seems to have no imprints after 1818. From 1827, the year after Gillé's death, the foundry was continued by the writer Honoré de Balzac and his associates. Balzac's Illusions perdues , written in 1837 and set in 1821/22, refers to the "ronde" script types of Gillé, former printer to the Emperor, and contrasts his excellent and up-to-date types with the outdated work of a provincial typefounder.In very good condition, with only very minor foxing and one or two pages very slightly dirty. Wholly untrimmed copy.

         Three Letters Addressed to a Friend in India, by a Proprietor. Principally on the Subject of Importing Bengal Sugars into England.

      London, J. Debrett, 1793. - 8vo. 88 pp. With a folding table "Profit and loss on sugars imported from Begal" after p. 10. Disbound with remains of a calf spine. First edition. - "It is contended, in these letters, that the India company are already in possession of exclusive privileges which many deem injurious to the public, and that it would be gross impolicy to invest them with the power of converting the sugar trade into a monopoly. An equalization of duties is deemed both unnecessary and impolitic; unneccessary, because the East India company can bring sugars to market with a profit subject to the present high duties, as long as it can be for the general interest of the nation, that they should so do; and impolitic, because the East India company would totally ruin the West India islands if they can import sugars to any extet for which a demand can be found" (The Analytical Review 15 [1793], p. 523). - Title a little spotty; slight dampstain in the upper margin. "No. 4" handwritten in old ink to upper right corner of title page. Goldsmiths 15622. Ames Library pamphlet collection 91:5. ESTC T2945 (7 copies). OCLC 503866141. [Attributes: First Edition]

         RÉUNION: DÉCRET DE LA CONVENTION NATIONALE, DU 19 MARS 1793, L’AN 2D DE LA RÉPUBLIQUE FRANÇAISE, QUI CHANGE LE NOM DE L’ÎLE DE BOURBON EN CELUI DE L’ÎLE DE LA RÉUNION.

      Marseille: Auguste Mossy, . 1793 - 8° (25 x 19.5 cm / 10 x 7.5 inches): Collation Complete: 4 pp. letterpress, printed on a single folded sheet, unbound as issued (Very Good, crisp with dark printing impression, very slight chipped loss to inner corner of last page, not affecting printed area, light old guard stains to corners of last page). The extremely rare Marseille imprint of the Convention Nationale’s decree changing the name of Île de Bourbon to Île de la Réunion, issued at the height of the French Revolution. This is the very rare Marseille imprint of the official decree which changed the name of Île de Bourbon to Île de la Réunion, as ordained by the French Revolutionary Convention Nationale. The island today known as Réunion was first claimed by France in 1638, and, in 1649, was named Île de Bourbon, after the French Royal Family. During the French Revolution, after the overthrow of the French monarchy and the execution of Louis XVI (January 21, 1793), the new Jacobin regime was determined to erase any and all traces of the Bourbon family – in both Metropolitan France and throughout the colonies. On March 19, 1793, the Convention Nationale (the Revolutionary Parliament) decreed that the name of the Île de Bourbon should henceforth be changed to Île de la Réunion. He name was chosen to commemorate the reconciliation, or ‘reunion’, of the Revolutionary factions of Marseille with the National Guard of Paris, which occurred on August 10, 1792. Consequently, the first edition of the present Décret was promptly printed in Paris by the Imprimerie nationale exécutive du Louvre. The present edition was printed in Marseille some days thereafter, specifically to assert the validity of the decree in the Bouches-du-Rhône Department. This was rather fitting given that the name Réunion celebrates the reconciliation of the Marseillaise and Parisian Revolutionary factions. Like the Paris edition, the present issue of the decree is signed by the Revolutionary officials Gaspard Monge and Louis-Jérôme Gohier. However, the Marseille edition features an extra paragraph of text noting the local acceptance of the decree and its deposition in the departmental archives, dated April 8, 1793. The name-change decree took some time to reach the Île de Bourbon/Réunion. There the news – and any anything else Revolutionary – received a mixed greeting. While the island was home to some die-hard rabble-rousers, the plantocracy was inherently conservative, and tended to harbour Royalist sympathies. The planters, in reference to the name change and the island’s famous coffee exports, exclaimed "Pourquoi aller si vite ? .Le monde entier connaît le café de Bourbon; si le nom change personne ne l’achètera plus!" ["Why go so fast? .The whole world knows the coffee of Bourbon; if the name changes nobody will buy more!"]. Nevertheless, on February 20, 1794, the island’s Republican-dominated colonial assembly voted to approve the change to Île de la Réunion. However, the colony’s Royalist governor, Jean-Baptiste du Plessis, vetoed the measure. Shortly thereafter, Plessis was deposed the by Pierre Alexandre Roubaud, the new interim governor, sent by the Revolutionaries to quell Royalist sentiment on the island. Therefore, the Réunion name stuck, at least for a time. In 1801, Following Napoleon’s takeover of France, Réunion’s name was changed to Île Bonaparte. The island was conquered by Britain in 1810, upon which the occupying regime preferred the name Bourbon. However, the island’s name was not officially changed back to Île de Boubon until it was retuned to (Royalist Restoration) France in 1815. The Bourbon name persisted until 1848, when the Bourbon family was once again (and for the last time) deposed. From that point to the present day, the island had been known as Réunion. A Note on Rarity - The present Marseille edition of the Décret is very rare; we cannot trace any institutional examples, although surely there is an example in the archives in Aix-en-Provence. We are aware of only a sin

         Horatio Gates

      March 5, 1793. Partial Document Signed "Nath. Massie D[isitrict] S[urveyor]", two pages, 8" x 6", [Clinton County, Ohio], March 5 & April 29, 1793 being a portion of a manuscript survey of a 1000 acre tract in the Virginia Military District, on behalf its owner, General Horatio Gates.Fine content, tape stains, repaired along separated folds, moderate soiling, else very good condition.Nathaniel Massie (1763-1813) Land speculator and surveyor who helped organize the Virginia Military District on the Ohio River helping establish some of the first major towns in the state of Ohio including Chillicothe.The Virginia Military District was a large tract of land north of the Ohio River intended for land grants for Virginia veterans of the Revolutionary War. Although these lands were intended for soldiers, very few had the funds following the war to make a westward journey. Instead they often sold off their land claims to their officers for ready money to their officers who began to engage in western land speculation. This was one of five surveys done in this month for Gates, who purchased over 7000 acres of land in this region. The frenzy for western lands would continue well into the 1790s before the bubble would finally burst, bankrupting numerous investors including the prolific Robert Morris who ended the decade in debtor's prison.

         Autograph Letter Signed

      - This most reknowned of British naval heroes is almost as famous for his scandalous open affair with one of the most famous and beautiful women in England, the married Emma Hamilton, despite having lost most of his teeth, the use of his right eye and his right arm in various military successes; his nautical victories against the French made him Napoleon's nemesis; killed aboard his ship "Victory" in the battle of Trafalgar. ALS, 1p, 7" X 8¼", Burnham, 1793 February 2. Addressed to "Gentlemen." Near fine. A boldly penned and handsome example of Nelson's scarce right-handed penmanship, four years prior to losing his right arm in a July 1797 battle and having to learn to write left handed. Rather cryptic financial content, reading in full: "I am glad to hear You did not bring our trust money into the Lands as they had risen so very much. I shall be in Town on tuesday Evening & shall probably see Mr. Creed on Wednesday, therefore please to let the money Remain in your hands 'till you hear farther from my Brother or myself. I am Your Very Humble Servant." Page & Creed were Nelson's bankers, so the reference to Mr. Creed almost certainly refers to that firm. This choice and scarce letter has been handsomely displayed under a pale green matte with gold filigree alongside a stunning 6½" X 8¼" hand-colored steel engraved portrait of "Horatio, Viscount Nelson" engraved by W. Finden and "From the original of Hoppner in / His Majesty's Collection." This early 19th century portrait is in fine condition and bears a large incredibly ornate hand-colored decorative border; it depicts Nelson almost full-length, in full military regalia, with his empty right sleeve pinned to his chest. This pair is framed under glass in a 1" contemporary walnut frame (overall dimensions 21" X 15"). A superb presentation -- Nelson in his most desirable (that is, right-handed) form.

         An Essay Upon Gardening, containing a catalogue of exotic plants for the stoves and green-houses of the British gardens...

      York: G. Peacock, 1793. Quarto, 3 folding plates, contemporary (?original) marbled boards, calf spine renewed. A singular work written and published at the cusp of the fashion for exotics, which provides a most interesting overview of the state of play in England in the early 1790s. Richard Steele, a Yorkshire gardener who lived and worked around Thirsk, wrote the work as "an attempt to aid in the management of that most elegantly-refined and fascinating department of the Garden, where the prodigious variety of rare plants that have been introduced into this kingdom, from the hot regions of the terraqueous globe, are deposited...".What is immediately noticeable is that while there are established collections from the East and West Indies, and while British gardens were beginning to have really substantial collections of Cape plants, there is still only a handful of Australian plants available for cultivation. Published in the same year as Smith's Botany, this work describes six Australian plants, all apparently collected before the First Fleet era. The Eucalyptus obliqua noticed by Steele, for example, was the first major plant to be routinely noticed as growing in England, and is known to have been collected in Tasmania by Furneaux in 1774 and Cook in 1777, being first figured in France in 1788. Thus, while Steele's work includes notes on how best to grow each species, most of the notes on Australian plants display some uncertainty, as with the entry on the eucalpyt: "I cannot speak with certainty as to the propagation of this plant; but most of the South Sea woody plants will grow from cuttings, with the same treatment as cuttings from plants of similar latitudes in the other hemisphere."The work concludes with a two-page notice on the "Directions for the Preservation of Seeds, &c." on long voyages, and it also includes a most interesting essay on how to get the best out of the "Stove", recommending that one about 160 feet long (!) would be appropriate for "containing a prodigious collection of plants for the satisfaction of the curious." The essay on the Stove dwells particularly on the growing of grapes and vines, with asides on exotic fruits such as the pineapple, at this time beginning to be regarded as the pinnacle of the art of the exotic gardener. In this regard the three plates are significant, the first two reproducing Steele's notion of the ideal stove and greenhouse, while the third shows the more modest greenhouse actually built by Richard Anthony Salisbury, of note because he was one of those who did in fact cultivate Australian plants, and who published with William Hooker the Paradisus Londinensis (1805-1809).The subscribers - some 275 - would probably have accounted for the bulk of the edition, and it has proved to be a rare work on the market. Steele's essay was published in York, and there is certainly a northern bias to the subscribers: it's not often that a work of this type and date would have been subscribed to by folks such as "James Banks, Esq., of Pontefract", but not his namesake Sir Joseph. Many are gardeners to large estates, or architects, and there are a goodly number of other middle class professionals: surgeons, attorneys, and the like. Among his contemporaries Richard Anthony Salisbury is probably the most prominent, and there is also the Duke of Portland, whose house Bulstrode was a centre for natural history in this era, largely due to the efforts of Margaret Bentinck, Duchess of Portland (1715-1785). Provenance: Marmaduke Jerard Grimston, of Grimston Garth and Kilnwick (1826-1879, like the author a Yorkshireman), with his armorial bookplate. Some light scattered foxing.

         Beaumarchais à Lecointre, son Dénonciateur: ou Compte-Rendu des neuf mois les plus pénibles de ma Vie.

      s.l.n.d. (Paris, 1793). - 6 parties en un volume in-4. 38pp. 37pp. 50pp. 67pp. (i.e. 65). 56pp. 104pp. Demi basane dos à nerfs orné, papier des plats renouvelés (Reliure de l'époque). Edition Originale de la justification de Beaumarchais concernant l'imbroglio diplomatique, politique et financier de "l'affaire des soixante-mille fusils de Hollande". Une partie de ces armes achetées par Beaumarchais pour le compte du gouvernement révolutionnaire devait être affrétée pour Saint-Domingue, "le reste étant destiné pour le Continent d'Amérique qui arme contre les Sauvages". Ceci permettait de réserver les fusils neufs fabriqués en France, aux troupes nationales qui en manquaient cruellement. Mais la déclaration de guerre le 20 avril 1792, les exigences subites de la Hollande, les changements continuels de ministres joints à la lenteur de la bureaucratie empêchèrent Beaumarchais d'obtenir la livraison des armes, ce qui le fit suspecter de trahison, poursuivre et emprisonner. Le présent ouvrage, divisé en six "époques" parues séparément (la septième étant restée inédite), constitue le principal document relatif à cette affaire. Beaumarchais ayant pris connaissance depuis sa prison de Londres des accusations portées contre lui par le conventionnel Laurent Lecointre, rédigea ce mémoire dans sa cellule, en décembre 1792, et le publia dès son retour à Paris, au mois de mars suivant. Quelques mouillures, bon exemplaire par ailleurs. 2 exemplaires au NUC. Cioranescu, 10434. Bibliothèque Nationale, catalogue exposition "Beaumarchais", 552. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      1793 - Berlin: Verlag der K.P.A. Kunst u.Buchhandlung, 1793. Original colour. Dissected and laid on linen, total 985 x 1200mm, folded into a contemporary marbled slipcase with morocco gilt label and matching marbled chemise; also containing a second folding map, original colour, 455 x 510mm Second map with old ink mss. edits. A detailed map published in the Prussian capital of Berlin immediately after the Second Partition of Poland, in which the Prussians and Russians helped themselves to more Polish territory. It shows the pre- and post-partition borders. The elaborate title vignette was drawn by H.J. Bruningh and is also dated 1793. The second, smaller map shows how the Prussian, Russians and Austrians carved up the remainder of Poland in the Third Partition, 1795. The map has paper patches over the title and date ('itauen' and '96'); all the other examples we could trace have the same details engraved on, suggesting this is an early state, soon changed. It is impossible to see the original engraving under the patches. As Sotzman (1754-1840) was a self-taught engraver it is probable that he engraved this map himself. He became Geographer to the Prussian Academy of Sciences in 1786 and Prussian Minister for War in 1804. NIEWODNICZANSKIEGO: Imago Polaniae, K125. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
