        Allgemeine Geschichte der Natur in alphabetischer Ordung; fortgesetzt von einer Gesellschaft Gelehrten, und herausgegeben von Johann Georg Krünitz

      Berlin and Stettin: Pauli 1774 - 1793 - 11 Bände (vollständig) - With 559 (plus 12 additional), mostly coloured engraved plates, eleven engraved portraits and engraved title vignette. Contemporary calf, gilt spine in compartments, two morocco labels. Browning here and there due to paper quality, otherwise an excellent most complete copy Very rare in complete form. With all plates mentioned and 12 additional plates with shells probably from another work bound in. Allgemeine Geschichte der Natur ("The General History of Nature) by Fried-rich Heinrich Martini and J. Georg Krünitz is one of a number of large, comprehensive dictionaries of nature that were published during the 18th century. Written in the style of the French dictionaries like Valmont de Bomare's, this work on natural history and botany covers animals, entomology, shells, plants, geology, minerals, fossils, and more, with many of the illustrative plates designed by the distinguished artists of the age. These plates were mostly engraved by J. Schmidt in Berlin. Unlike many of the contemporary French works, however, this book is alphabetical in ist treatment of the subject. Apparently it was not a profitable venture either, and was never completed, with the 11 volumes that appeared extending only from the letter A through entries beginning with Coquille’. The compilers of dictionaries had two large banks from which to rob: Linnaeus' Systema Naturæ and Buffon's Histoire Naturelle. They would abstract and arrange the contents of these works alphabetically. As a result the reader got Linnaeus' exactness and Buffon's fine writing in both science and literature. Creation of such dictionaries reached ist zenith with the extravagant works of Houttyun's Natuurkyke Historie of Uitvoerige Beschryving der Dieren, Planten en Mineralen, published in thirty-seven volumes (1761 - 1785), and Valmont de Bomare's Dictionaire Raisoné Universel d'Histoire Naturelle, that appeared in at least five editions, and in Danish, Dutch, Italian and Russian translations. Martini's Allgemeine Geschichte der Natur in alfabetischer Ordnung (1774), which ambi-tiously built on Bomare's Dictionaire and invited ist readers to participate in making a new edition by filling out pages left blank for the purpose. Friedrich Heinrich Wilhelm Martini (1729 1778) was a german physician, translator of natural history works and shell collector. Martini who worked as physician in Hamburg, before relocating to Berlin where he founded the important and influential Gesellschaft naturforschender Freunde. Martini began to publish in 1769 a famous book on shells: Neues systematisches Conchylien-Cabinet published by Raspe at Nürnberg. But he died after the publication of the third volume. His work was continued by Johann Hieronymus Chemnitz (1730 -1800) who added eight volumes between 1779 and 1795. Even though the work does not use the binomial system both are considered author of the new species figured. His Allgemeine Geschichte der Natur incorporates many articles on shells and images of specimens from different shell collections.- Dance. Shell Collecting. An illustrated History (1966); Zischka, Allgemeines Gelehrten-Lexikon, 208; Nissen, ZBI 2721 (556 plates).; Hagen, 523 (only 511 plates). [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        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.

        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]

        THE PLAYS OF WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE. IN FIFTEEN VOLUMES. WITH THE CORRECTIONS AND ILLUSTRATIONS OF VARIOUS COMMENTATORS. TO WHICH ARE ADDED, NOTES BY SAMUEL JOHNSON AND G. STEEVENS

      London: Longman, et al., 1793. Fourth Edition. Full Leather. Very Good binding. The fourth and last edition published by Steevens, issued in response to "proposals for 'a new and splendid edition' of Shakespeare, 'in fifteen volumes, royal octavo' [with] the plays 'arranged in the order in which they are supposed by Mr. Malone to have been written" [Murphy; Shakespeare in Print (2003), p. 98]. This Steevens edition was influential as "[m]ost of the editions produced for the popular market over the course of the 1800s were -- at least in the first half of the century -- ...based on the later Johnson--Steevens--Reed and Malone text [ibid., p. 188]. Lovely set in polished calf board double-ruled in gilt at the perimeter; with later rebacks in brown morocco with decorations in gilt and contrasting morocco labels; new marbled endpapers and flyleaves. Each volume with a half-title, and each play with it's own title leaf. Illustrated with plates, several in-text woodcuts, and several folding plates, including a splendid plate of Morris Dancers, "From an Ancient Window in the House of George Tollett Esq. at Betley in Staffordshire".

        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.

His development of this came well before the Wealth of Nations; it is in the Theory of Moral Sentiments of 1759 and the Lectures of 1762-3" (D. P. O'Brien, The Classical Economists, 1975, p. 29).

        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.

      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]

        An Enquiry concerning Political Justice, and its Influence on General Virtue and Happiness.

      London: Printed for G. G. J. and J. Robinson,, 1793. 2 volumes, quarto (295 x 228 mm, uncut). Uncut in original boards, rebacked with new paper spines, printed paper labels. Preserved in a custom made slipcase. With errata and directions to the binder leaf bound in vol. I. Contemporary ownership inscription to title of vol. I, another to front board of vol. I partly eroded. Sympathetically rebacked, with new printed paper labels, half-titles removed, front free endpapers refitted; occasional light spotting and the odd stain; a very good copy, rare in this condition. First edition, uncut in the original boards, of one of the most radical and far-reaching political tracts of the era, by the father of British philosophical radicalism. Published just weeks after the execution of Louis XVI, and written in response to Burke's Reflections, Godwin's tract attacks all restraints on the exercise of individual judgement - in the belief that human opinions will become progressively more enlightened with the growth of knowledge. Among Godwin's targets were established religion and marriage, and he believed that government itself would ultimately become unnecessary. The first edition is famously free from the mediations and compromises that Godwin worked into later editions, and which so vexed Percy Bysshe Shelley, who took this book, in its original form, as his bible. Godwin's Political Justice directly provoked Thomas Malthus to write his Essay on the Principle of Population (1798).

      [n.p., circa ]. 1793 - Manuscript, pen and ink and watercolour on laid, watermarked paper (Very Good, bright and clean, just 2 very minor points of smudging), 8.8 x 16 cm (3.46 x 6.3 inches). Small, but important – one of the only surviving contemporary manuscript maps depicting the Great Fire of Cap?Français of 1793 that virtually destroyed the most important French city in the Americas during the early period of the Haitian Revolution, drafted by an exceptionally skilled anonymous hand in the wake of the conflagration. his is one of only a few surviving original contemporary manuscript maps concerning the Great Fire of June 21-26, 1793, that consumed most of Cap?Français (popularly known as ‘Ville du Cap’, today’s Cap-Haïtien), the commercial centre of the French colony of Saint-Domingue (Haiti), one of the wealthiest trading cities in the New World. The destruction of the city occurred within the greater context of the Haitian Revolution (1791-1804), whereupon the city was set ablaze under mysteries circumstances, during a complex battle between rival French factions and Haitian rebels. The consequent destruction of Cap?Français was one of the great turning points in the history of the West Indies, forever altering the course of the established Trans-Atlantic economy. The map focuses closely on the city of Cap?Français proper, from a westward-oriented perspective. The city is shown composed of 260 orderly, geometrical built-up blocks, punctuated by squares. Entitled "Plan de la Ville du Cap où est marqeé en noir ce qui à été Incendié les 21, 22, 23, 24, 25 & 26 Juin 1793." [Plan of Ville du Cap where the places marked in black indicate the areas destroyed by the fire of June 21-26, 1793], the plan shows that the vast majority of the city was consumed in the conflagration, with scarcely some blocks along its periphery still remaining. Beyond the city, the Morne Jean highlands rise to the right-hand side of the map, while on the left, commences the plantation estates upon the fertile plains along the Rivière Mapou. A scale .

        Rare Antique Proof Print-MACKREL-FISH-CRIES OF LONDON-Schiavonetti-Wheatley-1793

      - 'New mackrel, new mackrel!' This plate shows a scene from 18th century London with a street seller / hawker vending fish. Plate (5 of 13). Proof print of original ed. Very rare. Handcoloured stipple and line engraving on a verge type handlaid paper. Description: Original antique print after a painting by Francis Wheatley from a series of 12 plates. This plate was originally published by Colnaghi & Co., London, 1793-1797. Wheatley exhibited his series of oil paintings entitled the 'Cries of London' at the Royal Academy between 1792 and 1795. He created these sublime images of street sellers that are now the works upon which his reputation rests. Born in Covent Garden in 1747, Wheatley was ideally qualified to portray these hawkers because he grew up amongst them and their cries, echoing in the streets around the market. However, these pictures are far from social reportage as we understand it, and you may notice a certain similarity between many of the women portrayed in these pictures, for whom it is believed Mrs Wheatley, herself a painter and exhibitor at the Royal Academy, was the model. This appears to be a proof print before letters.Artists and Engravers: Engraved by Niccolo Schiavonetti jr. (1771 - 1813) after Wheatley. Francis Wheatley (1747 - 1801), English painter. Condition: Very good, given age. Some small spots in the margins. General age-related toning and/or occasional minor defects from handling. Please study scan carefully. Profesionally matted, not examined out of matting. Storage location: DPO-78-21 The overall size is ca. 19.7 x 23.6 inch. The image size is ca. 11.6 x 15 inch. The overall size is ca. 50 x 60 cm.

      - Original master print, titled: 'Education'. It shows a mother seated on a bench outside, reading (and probably teaching letters) to a small girl seated on her lap. Handcoloured stipple engraving on a verge type handlaid paper. Description: Original antique master print, published by W. Bond & C. Knight, in 1793. Our definition of a Master Print is a seperately published print or series of prints, not being an illustrative print to a text. These can both be prints made by old masters (artists) or prints made by others (artists, engravers, etchers) after old masters.Artists and Engravers: Engraved by Bond after a painting by Singleton. Henry Singleton (1766-1839) was an English painter, born into an artistic family in London. He was mainly known for his portraits. William Bond (act. 1772-1827) was an English engraver. William studied stipple engraving under Bartolozzi. His first work was published in 1772, and he continued engraving until 1807. He was President of the Society of Engravers. Condition: Good, given age. The margins quite stained outside the platemark. General age-related toning and/or occasional light soiling from handling. Please study scan carefully. Storage location: DP-B2-12 The overall size is ca. 15.7 x 20.7 inch. The image size is ca. 13.2 x 16.9 inch. The overall size is ca. 40 x 52.5 cm. The image size is ca. 33.5 x 43 cm.
