COLLINS, John; and William REEVE]
Carr & Co, Philadelphia, 1793. Engraved sheet music, on two sheets. Very rare early American anti-slavery sheet music. Carr advertised the sale of this work in both Dunlap's American Daily Advertiser and Brown's Federal Gazette as early as August 1793. The poem by John Collins was first set to music by William Reeve the year prior in London, making this printing the likely first American issue. Given the large abolitionist Quaker population, this early American sheet music takes on added significance. Although not noted as an abolitionist, the Birmingham poet Collins wrote this poem in the wake of the debate over William Wilberforce's motion in Parliament to abolish slavery. In the poem, written in the first person from the perspective of the oppressed, the story is told of being kidnaped from Africa onto a slave ship, but during the crossing breaks his chains and runs on deck only to be struck by lightening, upon which due to the loss of his eyesight (and therefore perceived to have no value by the slavers) he is thrown overboard; although rescued, he laments the loss of his "watery grave" and his plight of wandering Britain free but penniless. See Haslinger regarding the use of death as a theme in 18th century antislavery verse (i.e. thereby equating slavery with death, or in this case a fate worse than death), in which she refers to the present poem: "Antislavery verse also uses meter to present enforced survival as a form of unfreedom that etiolates life; here, being fated to live is more unlucky than being fated to die. The emphatic verse of The Desponding Negro commun … [Click Below for Full Description]

MUNOZ Y FERRANDIS, Juan Bautista
En Madrid, Por la viuda de Ibarra, 1793. FIRST EDITION. 4to, pp. [6], xxx, 364, with an engraved frontispiece portrait of Christopher Columbus (inscription: "D. Cristobal Colon, descubridor del Nuevo Mundo") by Fernando Selma after Mariano Maella's drawing and a large, fresh final folding map engraved by Tomas Lopez Enguidanos, showing the New World and the island of Hispaniola (inscription: "la Isla Espanola con sus provincias segun la division de los naturales, y algunos nombres impuestos por el descubridor y los primeros colonos"). The book contains the dedication to the King of Spain Carlos III, the prologue, the history of the discovery of the Americas from 1492 up to 1500, and a final summary. Occasional early ink underlining throughout and a few pencil notes, which are more recent. Rebound in late 19th/early 20th century half cloth and marbled paper over pasteboard. Skillfully restored board corners and renewed endpapers; it preserves the original marbled rear free endpaper. A light stain shows that a label was once attached to the spine. Margins of frontispiece and title-page very slightly soiled, occasional light dampstaining to blank margins of final leaves; else very clean and crisp. A nice, wide-margined copy of this scarce and important work. Munoz's life changed radically during the year 1770, since Carlos III made him "cosmógrafo mayor de Indias", that is, cosmographer, or historian and geographer, of the New Indies, also thanks to the intercession of the Hebrew scholar Perez Bayer, whom he met earlier in Valencia during his studies in philosophy and mathemat … [Click Below for Full Description]

RICHTER, Johann Paul Friedrich (1763-1825
1793. "Jean Paul," a much-admired and much-maligned German writer of the Romantic period whose prolific output included such novels as "The Invisible Lodge" (1793), "Hesperus" (1795), "Siebenkäs" (1796-97), "Titan" (1800-03), "The Awkward Age" (1804-05) and many others. ALS in German, 1p, 6¼" X 8", Hof in Vorgtland, Germany, 13 December 1789. Addressed to (in translation) "Highly honored and respected Sir." Very good. Mounting traces along left edge (verso only). An unusually early example, boldly penned in dark brown ink during a period when he was living with his mother and tutoring children in a nearby village; his pseudonymously-published, poorly-received "Selections from the Devil's Papers" was published earlier this same year. In this letter he writes an unnamed publisher that (in translation) "I take the liberty to send you the beginning of a manuscript and beg you to give me your opinion as to its probable acceptance or rejection at your earliest convenience. I have the honor to sign myself with the greatest respect...." Boldly signed "J.P.F. Richter." Richter's next book ("The Invisible Lodge") wasn't published until 1793, and parts of it such as "Life of the Cheerful Schoolmaster Maria Wutz" are believed to have been written in 1790, so it's quite possible that he was submitting some other portion of "The Invisible Lodge" with this query. An interesting example worth further research. Very scarce. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

Boswell set about compiling his many thousands of notes after Johnson's death in 1784, and this was the only revision he lived to make: much new material, including a number of original letters, had come to him in the wake of the huge success of the first edition (1791) and he added many lengthy new notes, and prefatory matter.

Contemporary brown calf with gilt titles to spine and armorial device stamped to all boards. All edges yellow; marbled endpapers. Clean textblocks, some marks to edges. Neat repairs to joints, bindings rubbed to spines and board edges, some chipping to the tips of the spines. Very good. Lindsay fought as a grenadier officer during the American War of Independence in the 1770's and 80's, seeing action at both St Lucia and Gibraltar. At the close of hostilities he was promoted Lieutenant Colonel of his regiment, but committed suicide during his defence of the Island of Martinique in March 1795. These two volumes of military history consist chiefly of a series of extracts translated from von Tempelhoff's 'Geschichte des Siebenjährigen Krieges', alongside a translation of a treatise on winter posts based on the War of the Bavarian Succession in 1778. Lindsay introduces the book with a detailed summary of the course of the Seven Years War from the British perspective, engaging with General Lloyd's history, and closes with his own eye-witness accounts of fighting at St Lucia and Gibraltar during the American War of Independence. A rare book not seen at auction this past century. ESTC: T83350. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

First English edition of Thunberg's famous voyage to South Africa, Indonesia, Japan and Ceylon in the years 1770 to 1779, containing "material of great ethnographical interest" (DSB). In 1770 Carl Peter Thunberg was offered the opportunity to travel to Japan on a Dutch merchant vessel to collect plants for the Amsterdam botanical garden. Japan was closed to all foreigners except the Dutch, so in order to pass for a Dutchman, Thunberg stayed three years in the Cape Province to learn the language, making three journeys to the interior of the country, collecting and describing more than 3000 species, including about 1000 new to science. In 1775 he travelled on to Java, and in August 1775, he arrived in Japan. Although his movements were restricted, he nevertheless managed to collect specimens via his interpreters.With armorial bookplates of William Scott Kerr, title-pages of vols. I-III with small watercolours in roundels, signed "I.P.A.". Vols. I-III lack half-titles, vol. II lacks the index as well. Some browning and spotting, otherwise in good condition.

Armorial bookplate of John O'Donnell, later ownership name & short note on inner front board vol. I. ESTC T136755. FIRST DUBLIN EDITION. Bryan Edwards, a gentleman of Southampton, was a Jamaican planter and politician and a staunch opponent of the anti-slavery movement. His History, first published in 1793, represented the position of the moderate planter, emphasizing the value of the sugar islands to Britain, and was written largely from self-interest. 'He used his writing to defend slavery and the planters, and yet claimed to be opposed in principle to both the slave trade and slavery stating that he was 'no friend to slavery, in any shape, or under any modification'. In fact, he was bitterly opposed to abolition and tried to counter abolitionist arguments by claiming that the reform of slavery and the slave trade had begun in practice. Edwards also suggested some ideas about the ways in which slavery might gradually be phased out, positing that enslaved people could 'be attached to the land, and sold with it', likening this to the reforms that had once been made to the system of villeinage in Europe.'

Contemporary wrappers charmingly decorated in pink. 70, [6] pp. Rare first edition of a treaty on the Chinese oil-bearing radish, by Francesco de Grandi. Wishing to extend the production of oil for the growing consumption, the Patriotica Societa of Milan decided to reward the person that would come with a method to achieve this. As Francesco de Grandi had heard of the production of oil from radish in China, described by Linnaeus, he decided to take the challenge and in 1787 sowed 12 seeds of the radish. His experiment was a great success, and he was rewarded. This work contains information about the properties of the radish, the best circumstances for sowing, the grain harvest, the preparation of the seed, the extraction and conservation of the oil.With a letterpress bookplate on paste-down.

In 1783, Joaquim José de Santa Anna (ca. 1735?-1814) was appointed as the first ocular surgeon in Portugal, at the Hospital de S.

Excellenz werden einem uralten Reisenden aus den Goldwüsten Sibiriens die Kühnheit verzeihen Ihrem besonderen Schutze einen auch halb sibirischen Berg und Hüttenmann, den sehr wissenschaftlich gebildeten Dr. Zerrenner gehorsamst zu empfehlen. Der Mann ist viele Jahre Bergdirector im Gouvernement Perm gewesen. Sein Werk: 'Anleitung zu Gold-, Platin- und Diamant Waschen' hat sich des vortrefflichen Haidingers Lob zu erfreuen gehabt: seine geognostischen Untersuchungen schäzen Leopold von Buch und der unbequeme Schreiber dieser unleserlichen Zeilen. Seine Moralität ist erprüft. Mit inniger Verehrung Ew Excellenz ganz gehorsamster AvHumboldt." - Der Montanist Karl Michael Zerrenner (1818-1878) war ab 1846 Vizepräsident der fürstlichen Butewa'schen Bergwerksverwaltung zu Mulinsk bei Perm. 1852 kehrte er nach Deutschland zurück und nahm in Coburg seinen Wohnsitz, wurde aber schon 1853 vom österreichischen Finanzministerium zum Vorstand einer geognostisch-bergmännischen Commission ernannt. Nach seiner Pensionierung zog er sich nach Tutzing am Starnberger See zurück. Seine "Anleitung zum Gold-, Platin- und Diamantenwaschen" (Leipzig 1851) fand viel Anerkennung. Erwähnt werden die Geologen Wilhelm Karl von Haidinger (1795-1871) und Leopold von Buch (1774-1853). - Der Empfänger ist auf dem beschnittenen Respektblatt eingetragen.

D’AGOULT, Charles (Attrib.).
Reshetnikov, Moscow, 1793. Attractive example of this anti-revolutionary tract, first published in Paris in 1790 as Bon Dieu! Qu’ils sont bêtes ces Français! This work takes a strong stance against the free-thinking works of Voltaire, and what are seen as the sacrilegious ideas of the French Materialist philosophers – a standpoint that tied in well with the ideological conservatism of the Russian church and state. The French Revolution aroused strong reactions in Russia, particularly among the government and ruling elite, for whom the message of liberty and equality presented a deep existential threat. The violent aftermath of the revolt was roundly condemned, and Louis was officially proclaimed a royal martyr. Such was the anti-French feeling in Russia during this period that there were even book burnings staged in Saint Petersburg and Moscow. This Russian edition was translated from the German by Ivan Fedorovich Vensovich (1769-1811), a student in the medical department of Imperial Moscow University. Vensovich later went on to become a professor of medicine at the university. The list of subscribers accounts for only 68 copies, mostly to Russian nobility, unusually including a few women (Naryshkina among others). Provenance: red stamp to title (unidentified; armorial?); Russian purchase note in ink to upper fly-leaf, dated 3/15 April 1869.

"Sheraton (1751-1806) hat nie eine eigene Tischlerwerkstatt besessen. Bevor er nach London kam, arbeitete er bei fremden Meistern; Möbel seiner Hand lassen sich nicht nachweisen. Nächst Chippendale ist (er) der grösste Theoretiker der englischen Kunsttischlerei und zugleich der letzte von europäischer Bedeutung ... Der Name 'Sheraton-Möbel' ist geradezu zum Gattungsbegriff geworden." (Th/B.). Die Tafeln sind nach Zeichnungen des Autors, ausgeführt von verschiedenen Stechern. - Bei der Nummerierung der Tafeln gibt es folgende Ungereimtheiten: Auf Nrn. 1-26 folgen Nrn. 25-61, wobei nach Nr. 26 eine unnum. Tafel eingefügt ist.

Humboldt, Alexander von, Naturforscher und Geograph (1769-1859).
An den Physiker und Staatsmann Andreas von Baumgartner (1793-1865) in Wien: "Ew. Excellenz werden einem uralten Reisenden aus den Goldwüsten Sibiriens die Kühnheit verzeihen Ihrem besonderen Schutze einen auch halb sibirischen Berg und Hüttenmann, den sehr wissenschaftlich gebildeten Dr. Zerrenner gehorsamst zu empfehlen. Der Mann ist viele Jahre Bergdirector im Gouvernement Perm gewesen. Sein Werk: 'Anleitung zu Gold-, Platin- und Diamant Waschen' hat sich des vortrefflichen Haidingers Lob zu erfreuen gehabt: seine geognostischen Untersuchungen schäzen Leopold von Buch und der unbequeme Schreiber dieser unleserlichen Zeilen. Seine Moralität ist erprüft. Mit inniger Verehrung Ew Excellenz ganz gehorsamster AvHumboldt." - Der Montanist Karl Michael Zerrenner (1818-1878) war ab 1846 Vizepräsident der fürstlichen Butewa'schen Bergwerksverwaltung zu Mulinsk bei Perm. 1852 kehrte er nach Deutschland zurück und nahm in Coburg seinen Wohnsitz, wurde aber schon 1853 vom österreichischen Finanzministerium zum Vorstand einer geognostisch-bergmännischen Commission ernannt. Nach seiner Pensionierung zog er sich nach Tutzing am Starnberger See zurück. Seine "Anleitung zum Gold-, Platin- und Diamantenwaschen" (Leipzig 1851) fand viel Anerkennung. Erwähnt werden die Geologen Wilhelm Karl von Haidinger (1795-1871) und Leopold von Buch (1774-1853). - Der Empfänger ist auf dem beschnittenen Respektblatt eingetragen.

SOIRON, F[rançois] D[avid] after DAYES, E[dward]; GAUGAIN, T[homas] after DAYES, E[dward]
London; London,: Publish'd by T. Gaugain No. 15 Five Fields Row, Chelsea; Publish'd by T. Gaugain, No.4 Little Compton Street, Soho,, 1793. 1793; 1796. Two engravings with stippling. A view of a crowd in St James’s Park. Londoners of all classes would go there to see and be seen; a young man stoops to recover a lady’s glove on the left, and another leans over the back of his lady’s chair on the right. It became especially popular after George III bought the nearby Buckingham Palace in 1763. The neo-classical building in the background of the print is St James’s Palace, which was still used by the royal family for formal occasions. Hyde Park was the fashionable place to ride in London, as shown by the mounted gentleman and the lady in a carriage in the background. Rotten Row was the place for individual riders, and the Drive was the home of the light carriages which came into fashion as the surfaces of the London roads improved. Edward Dayes (1763-1804) was a British painter and draughtsman to the Duke of York. Thomas Gaugain (1748-1805) and François David Soiron (b.1764) were French and Swiss-born engravers respectively who came to England to ply their trade. BM 1860,0728.117 and BM 1860,0728.118.
