        Lettere su le belle arti pubblicate nelle nozze Barbarigo-Pisani

      Stamperia di Carlo Palese, Venezia 1793 - In 8, pp. (12) + 192 con 1 tavola all'antiporta, vignetta incisa al frontespizio, belle testatine incise all'acquaforteÂentro medaglione raffiguranti sculture classiche. Cartonat. editoriale con stemma ai piatti. Splendido esemplare ad ampi margini stampato su carta forte di questa elegante raccolta comprendente venti saggi sulle belle arti stampato in occasione delle nozze fra Giovanni Barbarigo e Chiara Pisani. L'opera e' anonima ma risulta scritta da una donna ad 'una gentile Amica': 'S'introduce nella I. lettera col giustificarsi d'una relazione incontrata con un Milord inglese viaggiatore, fidandosi del di lui buon carattere, e godendo di poter trarre delle cognizioni dal racconto de' lunghi viaggi che fece. Alcuni quadri, arazzi, ed altre cose preziose possedute dal di lei marito porgon soggetto per intertenere l'amica in progresso con varie lettere sulle Belle Arti.a La II. riferisce la conversazione tenuta col viaggiatore Milord sulla Mitologia. Comprende la III lettera la concertata Sessione. Milord col'autorita' di Orazio preferisce Omero a tutti gli austeri filosofi come maestro di virtu', per mezzo delle favole dolcemente insinuata. Discende nella IV a parlare della scena e della musica congiunte alla Mitologia, atte quanto la poesia ad inspirar la morale. Milord previene le censure del Professore intorno a Metastasio ed a' suoi Drammi, col rifondere la colpa nel corrotto gusto del secolo. Versa la V intorno a camei, a medaglie, a bassi rilievi, ed a disegni specialmente di cose greche nelle Arti. Riferisce nella VII le osservazioni fatte sopra varj camei impressi ne' zolfi, giacche' essendo pregevolissimi diventano di difficile acquisto.'

        A Voyage round the World in His Majesty's Frigate Pandora. Performed under the direction of Captain Edwards in the years 1790, 1791 and 1792. With the discoveries made in the South-Sea; and the many distresses experienced by the crew from shipwreck and famine, in a voyage of eleven hundred miles in open boats, between Endeavour Straits and the island of Timor

      Berwick and London: W. Phorson, B. Law and Son, 1793. Octavo, with an engraved frontispiece portrait of the author; some very slight browning but a very good untrimmed copy in modern calf, gilt, in a matching folding half calf box. First edition: the only published account of the voyage of the Pandora, the vessel dispatched from England in 1790 to arrest the mutinous crew of Bligh's Bounty. The narrative is by the affable and amusing George Hamilton, the ship's surgeon on the Pandora, whose hair-raising tale of punishment and shipwreck is a classic of eighteenth-century voyage accounts. After sailing for some time in the South Pacific, Captain Edward Edwards of the Pandora decided to sail for England with the 14 mutineers he had captured in Tahiti all held in horrendous conditions in the "Box", a cage specially mounted on the deck of the ship. While navigating in Endeavour Strait the vessel struck a reef and foundered (ironically, Bligh himself had questioned Captain Edwards' competency in navigating these difficult waters). Left to drown, ten of the mutineers managed to survive only though the kindness of the master-of-arms, who dropped the keys to them in the last moments. Much like Bligh before them, an appalling voyage to Timor in the longboats followed, with the survivors eventually returned to England where the mutineers faced court martial. Captain Edwards was exonerated for the loss of the Pandora while Fletcher Christian and the remaining mutineers remained undiscovered on Pitcairn Island.This is now a very scarce book on the market. It was republished as a facsimile in the Australian Maritime Series in 1998. Hill, 766; James Ford Bell, H24; Kroepelien, 507; O'Reilly-Reitman, 606.

        A Complete Account of the Settlement at Port Jackson, in New South Wales, including an Accurate Description of the Situation of the Colony; of the Natives; and of its Natural Productions: taken on the spot, by Captain Watkin Tench, of the Marines

      London: Nicol and Sewell, 1793. Quarto, with a folding map, new endpapers; contemporary tree calf rebacked, a fine clean copy. Tench's second book, completing his account of the settlement at Sydney Cove. This is a most attractive copy of this very readable account, which continues the story to cover the first four years of the colony. Tench left New South Wales with the other marines on 18 December 1791 aboard HMS Gorgon which had accompanied the Third Fleet and his book was published in November or December 1793, more than a year after his return.Tench's second publication paints a comprehensive view of daily life in the settlement through years of hardship and severe shortages. An understanding and intelligent observer of human nature, he gives vivid insights into the often strained relationships between convict labourers and the marines set to guard them. His account is praised as the most insightful and detailed description of the social fabric of the penal colony, in contrast to other more formal and official narratives. Tench also describes his significant explorations of the landscape of the Sydney basin and forays into the Blue Mountains, while providing sympathetic descriptions of their contact with the Eora Aboriginal people. The book includes a folding map providing an excellent survey of known lands, it details Botany Bay and Broken Bay along the coast and inland to the Nepean river, with numerous engraved notes on the landscape with a view to future farming and grazing ventures.

        An Historical Journal of the Transactions at Port Jackson and Norfolk Island, with the Discoveries which have been made in New South Wales and in the Southern Ocean, since the publication of Phillip's Voyage, compiled from the Official Papers; Including the Journals of Governors Phillip and King, and of Lieut. Ball; and the Voyages from the First Sailing of the Sirius in 1787, to the Return of that Ship's Company to England in 1792

      London: John Stockdale, 1793. Quarto, 17 engraved plates, folding maps and charts (the two folding maps rather browned), list of subscribers; a good copy in contemporary calf, rebacked mounting the original spine. First edition of John Hunter's Journal: a foundation book of Australian coastal exploration which, together with Phillip's account, gives the first charting of Sydney Harbour. Hunter's account is a primary source for the early settlement of Norfolk Island, whose first settlement had also been named Sydney (or Sidney) Town in honour of the Home Secretary.Captain Hunter was appointed second captain of HMS Sirius under Phillip for the voyage to Botany Bay. Once in New South Wales he was actively engaged in surveying and exploration, and only left for England in late 1791 after an enforced stay of eleven months on Norfolk Island following the shipwreck of the Sirius there. In England he published this account, and was later recalled to New South Wales in February of 1795 to replace Captain William Paterson as commander in September of that year.Of particular note is the plate View of the settlement on Sydney Cove, after a sketch by Hunter which is the earliest depiction of the town of Sydney and that of A family of New South Wales after a drawing by Philip Gidley King and given particular beauty by William Blake as engraver.

        A Complete Account of the Settlement at Port Jackson, in New South Wales, including an Accurate Description of the Situation of the Colony; of the Natives; and of its Natural Productions

      London: sold by Nicol and Sewell, 1793. Quarto, an excellent copy, uncut in original pasteboards; housed in a folding bookform box. Tench's second book detailing the early years: original boards. Tench's second book, completing his account of the settlement at Sydney Cove.This is a most attractive copy of this very readable account, which continues the story to cover the first four years of the colony. Tench left New South Wales with the other marines on 18 December 1791 aboard HMS Gorgon which had accompanied the Third Fleet and his book was published in November or December 1793, more than a year after his return.Tench's second publication paints a comprehensive view of daily life in the settlement through years of hardship and severe shortages. An understanding and intelligent observer of human nature, he gives vivid insights into the often strained relationships between convict labourers and the marines set to guard them. His account is praised as the most insightful and detailed description of the social fabric of the penal colony, in contrast to other more formal and official narratives. Tench also describes his significant explorations of the landscape of the Sydney basin and forays into the Blue Mountains, while providing sympathetic descriptions of their contact with the Eora Aboriginal people. The book includes a folding map providing an excellent survey of known lands, it details Botany Bay and Broken Bay along the coast and inland to the Nepean river, with numerous engraved notes on the landscape with a view to future farming and grazing ventures.

        An Historical Journal of the Transactions at Port Jackson and Norfolk Island, with the Discoveries which have been made in New South Wales and in the Southern Ocean, since the publication of Phillip's Voyage, compiled from the Official Papers; Including the Journals of Governors Phillip and King, and of Lieut. Ball; and the Voyages from the First Sailing of the Sirius in 1787, to the Return of that Ship's Company to England in 1792

      London: John Stockdale, 1793. Quarto, with 17 engraved plates, folding maps and charts, list of subscribers, the often cropped date on the title-page intact; an excellent uncut copy bound in period-style half calf, gilt, with the bookplate of George Bennett, and the signature of a member of the Sutton family of Bathurst on title page. By the commander of the Sirius: with an interesting provenance. First edition of Hunter's Journal: a foundation book of Australian coastal exploration which, together with Phillip's account, gives the first charting of Sydney Harbour. Captain John Hunter was appointed second captain of HMS Sirius under Phillip for the voyage to Botany Bay. Once in New South Wales he was actively engaged in surveying and exploration, and only left for England in late 1791 after the loss of the Sirius at Norfolk Island while under his command. He spent the next few years in England, where he wrote the Journal.Hunter gives an excellent account of many activities, particularly exploration and the settlement at Norfolk Island, which are treated more cursorily by the other First Fleet chroniclers. The engraved plates and maps, many of the latter from original cartography by Hunter, Dawes and Bradley, are very fine. Of particular note is the plate View of the settlement on Sydney Cove, after a sketch by Hunter, which is the earliest depiction of the town of Sydney and that of A family of New South Wales after a drawing by Philip Gidley King and given particular beauty by William Blake as engraver.With the bookplate of George Bennett M.D. (1804-1893), who made a particular study of Australian and Pacific botany on his visit to the region in the early 1830s, and who published his own account as Wanderings in New South Wales...

In Three Volumes. The second edition, revised and augmented. (Complete in three volumes; extra-illustrated with 151 plates)

      Henry Baldwin for Charles Dilly, London 1793 - 2nd edition, 1st edition in octavo. A very Near Fine set. Complete in 3 volumes. Thick 8vo.[Vol.1] xxxix, xxxviii, 603; [Vol.2] (2), 605; [Vol.3](2), 711 pp. Extra-illustrated with 151 additional plates (some double page, 1 folding). a.e.g. Original diamond-patterned mottled calf, gilt-stamped spine compartments, raised bands, gilt-stamped red calf spine labels, gilt-stamped turn-ins; rebacked in elaborately gilt embellished spines. Boards lightly rubbed. Occasional small and incidental blemishes. A very Near Fine set, handsomely bound. **** This spectacular set of Boswell's famous biography of Doctor Samuel Johnson was embellished, probably early in the 19th century, with the addition of 151 engraved plates and portraits. These plates include royalty (Queen Elizabeth I, Mary Queen of Scots, Charles I, Charles II, William III, Queen Anne, George II, Queen Caroline), statesmen (Sir Joseph Banks, Oliver Cromwell, John Earl of Rochester, Horatio First Lord Walpole), artists and craftsmen (William Caxton, Rembrandt van Rijn), musicians and performers (Dr. Charles Burney, Charles Kemble, Richard Brinsley Sheridan), scientists and doctors (John Hunter, Sir Isaac Newton, Thomas Sydenham), explorers (Captain James Cook, Sir Francis Drake, Sir Walter Raleigh) and authors (Francis Lord Bacon, Jeremy Bentham, John Bunyan, Bishop Gilbert Burnet, Robert Burton, George Buchanan, Geoffrey Chaucer, Colley Cibber, Abraham Cowley, William Cowper, Daniel Defoe, Rene Descartes, John Dryden, Erasmus, Bernard de Fontenelle, Edward Gibbon, John Locke, Hannah More, Francesco Petrarca (Petrarch), William Shakespeare, Isaac Walton, Edward Young). Plus, there are many more lesser luminaries among these extra-illustrated plates, many of which are quite scarce. **** "When the LIFE OF JOHNSON was published in 1791 it at once commanded the admiration that Boswell had sought for so long, and it has suffered no diminuation since.It is still often said to be the greatest biography yet written, and the longevity of Dr. Johnson's fame perhaps owes much to the work (Boswell's)" -wiki [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        The History, Civil and Commercial, of the British Colonies in the West Indies

      London - John Stockdale 1793 - A set of The History, Civil and Commercial, of the British Colonies in the Est Indies by Bryan Edwards. Complete in two volumes. With one large folding map on two separate sheets in volume I, and three double-page and three folding letterpress tables in volume II. Collated complete. Bryan Edwards, FRS (May 21, 1743 July 15 or 16, 1800) was an English politician and historian born in Westbury, Wiltshire. Edwards supported the slave trade, and was described by abolitionist William Wilberforce as a powerful opponent. In 1784 Edwards wrote Thoughts on the late Proceedings of Government respecting the Trade of the West India Islands with the United States of America, in which he attacked the restrictions placed by the government upon trade with the United States. In 1793 he published in two volumes the History, Civil and Commercial, of the British Colonies in the West Indies, and in 1797 published his Historical Survey of the French Colony in the Island of St Domingo. The latter two titles were later republished, with some additional material, as the History of the British Colonies in the West Indies, in three volumes. This has been translated into German and, in part, into French and Spanish. A fifth edition was issued in 1819. Condition: In full calf leather bindings with gilt borders to the boards. Externally, a trifle rubbed. The label on the spine is missing on volume II and chipped on volume I. Joints are tender. Internally, generally firmly bound. Pages are generally bright and clean with some scattered light foxing. Overall: GOOD. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
