The covers are decorated with a gilt center panel of rectilinear and curved tooling that is framed by a thicker blind-tooled and a single-ruled gilt border. The board edges are tooled with a gilt double fillet and the turn-ins with a lacy gilt tulip-like motif. All edges are gilt, endpapers marbled. => A lovely, solid binding. Provenance: On the front pastedown, the bookplate of Brian Douglas Stilwell.

XXXII,XXVI,(4),230 pp.First edition. - Dalzel was the former governor at Whydah (now Quida, Benin), West-Africa, and at time of publication of the present work, governor at Cape-Coast-Castle.

He argued that the slave trade saved African victims from human sacrifice and slaughter' (The Paolo Bianchi Collection 102). The plates are showing scenes with armed women with the King at their head going to war, a public procession of the King's women, victims for sacrifice, etc. - (Occasionally sl. foxed; small library stamp on title-page).Cardinall 396; Hogg 170; Work p.8.

London: printed for I. and J. Taylor, at the Architectural Library, 1793. Quarto. (10 7/16 x 8 1/4 inches).

Bound to style in half calf and marbled paper covered boards, gilt morocco label to spine. 18th century English architectural pattern book.

GODWIN, WILLIAM
London: Robinson, 1793. FIRST EDITION. In Political Justice, his most famous work, Godwin responds to Burke s attacks on the French Revolution and Thomas Paine. He applies the principles of the Revolution to inquire into the philosophical basis of government. Believing that political and social institutions are tyrannical and corrupt, Godwin calls for reason to guide human affairs and advocates individual liberty. The Enquiry Concerning Political Justice was one of the earliest, the clearest, and most absolute theoretical expositions of socialist and anarchist doctrine. Godwin believed that the motives of all human action were subject to reason, that reason taught benevolence, and that therefore all rational creatures could live in harmony without laws and institutions. Believing in the perfectibility of man, he thought that our virtues and vices may be traced to the incidents which make the history of our lives, and if these incidents could be divested of every improper tendency, vice would be extirpated from the world. All control of man by man was intolerable and government by its very nature counteracts the improvement of original mind. The time would come, he maintained, when every man, by doing what seemed right in his own eyes, would also be doing what was best for all men, because all, through discussion, would be guided by purely rational principles. It is to be doubted if anyone fully accepted this out-and-out radicalism, but Godwin s passionate advocacy of individualism, his trust in the fundamental goodness of man, and his opposition to all restrictions on liber … [Click Below for Full Description]

Giovanni Antonio RIZZI ZANNONI (1736 - 1814)
1793. "Da ""L'Italia del Cavaliere Rizzi Zannoni"" (Associazione ""Roberto Almagià"", 2014), pp. 60, 61: La carta dell'Agro Napoletano è la prima carta topografica moderna dei dintorni di Napoli, costruita su basi geodetiche e con topografia di dettaglio proveniente da rilevamenti diretti sul terreno: fu rilevata in scala variabile da 1:25 000 a 1:40 000 ed incisa, in scala 1:55 000, da Giuseppe Guerra nel 1793. I rilevamenti di dettaglio furono eseguiti dai migliori impiegati del laboratorio cartografico di Rizzi Zannoni, che lavorarono per oltre due anni al disegno e al perfezionamento della carta. Giuseppe Marini impostò il lavoro tra il 1788 e il 1789: nell'aprile del 1789 fu pagato ""a conto de' viaggi da lui fatti, e faciendi per la configurazione de' contorni di Napoli""; Gaetano Montefuscoli ebbe, nel novembre del 1789 ""trenta ducati di gratificazione per lavori straordinarj da lui eseguiti sopra luogo ne' contorni di Napoli né due anni precedentemente scorsi"" e Luigi Marchese, nel febbraio 1790, ""per le misure da lui fatte, e faciende della Torre del Greco, e Paesi circonvicini"". In quel periodo il disegno doveva essere quasi completo se venne richiesto a Cristoforo Kniep di eseguire ""il disegno d'un frontespizio di sua composizione da incidersi sul Rame de' Contorni di Napoli"", per il quale viene pagato 30 ducati nel febbraio del 1790 (Valerio 1993: 154). Nel corso del 1790 Giuseppe Guerra diede inizio all'incisione del rame relativo, per il quale Giovanni Brun ricevette quindici ducati ""per ammigliorazioni, ed altri lavori d'incisione straordinarj"" nel se … [Click Below for Full Description]

Expertly bound to style in half 18th century russia and period marbled paper covered boards, red morocco lettering pieceReflections on the decline of the sugar industry in Britain.In the 17th century, plantation owners in the British colonies in the Caribbean began producing sugar, the crop that would, by 1750, become the single most lucrative commodity in the Caribbean and one of the most important in the world. Great Britain was one of the key players in the sugar trade, with its high level of sugar consumption and colonization of Barbados, the island which grew to have the most successful sugar industry in the Caribbean and where sugar accounted for almost all of the island's exports. The second half of the 17th century into the first half of the 18th century was a period of rapid growth and prosperity for Britain's ports, merchants, and planters, who constantly sought to expand their influence on the sugar trade to maximize their profit. Britain's success in the sugar trade in conjunction with its new industrialization made it the center of world trade for sugar.However, by the end of the 18th century, rising costs of sugar production and decreased demand in Europe cast Britain's domination of the sugar industry into decline. As demand for the abolition of the slave trade increased, the profitability of sugar declined and the industry was in crisis.

Vor 8 Jahren schrieb ein ähnlicher Kopf eine vollständige Zeitrechnung aller göttlichen Schriftsteller, in welcher die ganze biblische Zeitrechnung aus den Accenten abgeleitet wurde; unser Verfasser, der mit jenem sehr verwandt scheint, hat die Entdeckung gemacht, dass die „Verstandespuncte“ die Bedeutung, nicht wie man sonst glaubte, die Verbindung der Worte bestimmen. / / Die verschiedene Bedeutung, die ein Wort durch den Accent bekommt, gründet er auf den Namen der Accente, die hier alle auf eine neue Art erklärt und rangiert werden“.

Jefferson, Thomas
Philadelphia, 1793. [1]p. manuscript letter on a quarto sheet, 9 1/4 x 7 1/2 inches. Old folds. Small tape repair on verso. Near fine. A relatively brief but significant letter from Thomas Jefferson that relates to a number of important foreign and domestic political issues that bedeviled George Washington's administration in the early 1790s. The issues addressed by Jefferson, directly and indirectly, include the war between France and Great Britain, Washington's Neutrality Proclamation with regard to that conflict, the efforts of Edmond Genet to enlist private American aid in commandeering British shipping, and the duties, powers, and responsibilities of the individual states as opposed to the federal government. The task of enforcing American neutrality fell largely to Jefferson as Secretary of State, and it was a major instance of his reasoned notion that America must remain neutral coming into conflict with his emotional attachment to France. Edmond Genet, the first minister of the French Republic to the United States, arrived in Charleston, South Carolina on April 8, 1793, and immediately undertook a course of actions that strained French-American relations. France had declared war on Great Britain the previous February, and Genet sought to enlist American assistance in seizing British ships, and in attacking British holdings in North America. He commissioned American ships as privateers against British ships, and established French prize courts to divide the spoils. Just two weeks after Genet's arrival, Washington pronounced that the official policy of the Unite … [Click Below for Full Description]

GRAHAM, Charles.
Liverpool: Printed by T. Schofield, for the author, and sold by the booksellers, 1793. 12mo (174 × 96 mm), pp. 193, [1], with subscribers' list and folding engraved frontispiece; lightly browned throughout; modern half morocco to style by Philip Dusel. First edition, with an otherwise apparently unrecorded engraved plate bound as a frontispiece. Though having the same title as that of a preceding Kendal edition, this is actually a completely new collection, with only a few repeated articles (enough to assure us that Graham of Kendal is the same individual as Graham of Liverpool), including the essay on cock-fighting. In this 1793 collection, Graham advertises his occupation as writing-master through the elegant engraved plate (by Ashby of London) and the verse 'On the Arts of Penmanship and Engraving'. Graham also notes in his preface 'Some of the Poems were written during our unhappy contest with the Americans, and have some allusion thereto; but I trust, no person will take offence on this account: my remarks are of the pacific kind; being sensible that devastation and slaughter; are incompatible with the Christian name.' The long poem 'Columbus, or the Discovery of America' is offered, with a prose introduction, to mark the three-hundredth anniversary of the voyage of Columbus. It ends with a reference to the construction of Washington, with the footnote: 'The New City of Washington, now Erecting, intended to be the Capital of the United States.'

YOUNG, Arthur.
London: Printed for W. Richardson, 1793. Octavo (209 x 127 mm). Contemporary mottled calf, smooth spine ruled in gilt with red morocco label. Contemporary ownership signature to binder's blank ("Piggot"). Bound without half-title and final advertisement leaf. Discreet repair to head of spine, contents clean, corner of pp. 78 and 81 folded and uncut. An attractive, well-preserved copy. First edition. Young had travelled in France in the early years of the revolution, and his experiences in the country, including seeing his aristocratic friends murdered and rendered destitute, "brought about a permanent change in his political views. From being a liberal and a reformer, by 1792 he had become an opponent of the revolution and a conservative in English matters. He was highly critical of the ancien régime but, equally, he attacked the excesses of the revolution, and now he was fearful of the consequences of reform in England, necessary though it was. What was perhaps his most influential pamphlet, The Example of France a Warning to Britain, appeared in 1793 and reflected his changed views" (ODNB). By 1793 the English public were in broad agreement against the revolution, and this is reflected in the book's success - by the end of 1793 it had undergone three London editions and a Dublin edition.
