        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...

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]

        THE GENUINE TRIAL OF THOMAS PAINE, FOR A LIBEL CONTAINED IN THE SECOND PART OF RIGHTS OF MAN; AT GUILDHALL, LONDON, DEC 18, 1792

      London. 1793.. 143pp. plus 4pp. of publisher's ads. [bound with:] AN ACCOUNT OF THE TRIAL OF THOMAS MUIR...FOR SEDITION. Edinburgh. [1793]. 160pp. plus frontispiece portrait. [bound with:] THE TRIAL OF MAURICE MARGAROT...FOR SEDITION. Edinburgh. [1794]. 195,[1]pp. plus frontispiece portrait. [bound with:] THE TRIAL OF THE REV. THOMAS FYSHE PALMER...FOR SEDITIOUS PRACTICES. Edinburgh. [1793]. 195pp. Contemporary half calf and marbled boards, spine gilt with leather label. Light scattered foxing. Very good. A sammelband of British sedition trials, starting with Thomas Paine's famous trial for libel. In the 1790s the British government under William Pitt began a concerted effort to undermine the British radicals. Paine's publication of THE RIGHTS OF MAN in 1792 caused the government to prosecute his publisher for treason, but Paine himself was not charged until the end of 1793. This is the transcript from Paine's trial for libel, wherein it is described how he, "wishing and intending mischief, did, on the 16th of February, 1791, wickedly, falsely, maliciously, scandalously, and seditiously publish a certain book, called the Second Part of Rights of Man..." The jury did not even listen to the prosecution's rebuttal, informing the judge that they had found Paine guilty. Two issues of this edition - the second edition, corrected - are noted by ESTC, this being the scarcer of the two, with only two copies of this issue listed and only a handful of copies of the other issue. Thomas Muir was the first of the Scottish Martyrs to go to trial. Muir had travelled to France to join with Paine in an attempt to dissuade the Revolutionary government from executing the King. He was accused of sedition for distributing copies of THE RIGHTS OF MAN and arrested upon his return to Britain. Muir was found guilty and transported to Australia for fourteen years. With the help of sympathetic Americans, however, he escaped Botany Bay and made his way to France in 1797, where he joined Paine. Maurice Margarot, a founding member of the radical London Corresponding Society, was likewise accused of seditious practices and transported to Australia. Thomas Fyshe Palmer became a Unitarian minister after reading Joseph Priestley's writings. Radicalized by the French Revolution, Palmer became an advocate for lesser taxation and universal suffrage. For this he was accused and found guilty of seditious practices and sentenced to seven years transportation. He died of dysentery en route to Australia. An interesting collection of trials that together form a strong case against the practices of the government of Pitt the Younger in its efforts to avoid the revolutionary fervor that was sweeping the Continent. ESTC T218524, T19436, T112144, T93757. FERGUSON 158, 166, 188.

      Album in formato oblungo, cm.24x33,3, composto da 12 pagine di testo e da 120 incisioni al tratto di Tommaso Piroli su intagli di Filippo Pistrucci. Prefazione bilingue, italiano - francese, dell'editore Antonio Fortunato Stella. Legatura coeva in mz.pelle con piatti marmorizzati. Tassello con titoli e fregi in oro al dorso. Esemplare in barbe, ad ampi margini. Le incisioni raffigurano le cantiche del capolavoro dantesco, con citazione del verso di riferimento in versione italiana e francese. Fisiologiche tracce d'uso. Si tratta di una rara edizione ottocentesca di una importante raccolta iconografica della "Divina Commedia", pubblicata la prima volta in suite editoriale a Roma nel 1793. Ne è autore lo scultore inglese John Flaxman jr. (York, 1755 - 1826), corrispondente e allievo di William Blake, interprete dei canoni del neoclassicismo e ispiratore dell'arte di Ingres. Un'opera rivoluzionaria nell'interpretazione iconografica dantesca, tanto che il celebre quadro di Paolo e Francesca dello stesso Ingres sarebbe inconcepibile senza la chiave di lettura datane da Flaxman.

        The Botanical Magazine; or Flower-Garden displayed

      London.: W. Curtis.. Copyright 1793. This issue circa 1812.. 2 volumes bound in one, 72 handcolored engraved plates each with facing page of text, 10 3/4 x 6 3/4 inches (26x17.5cm), decorative embossed cloth-covered boards. Plates on wove paper, generally very clean and bright, occasional light foxing or spotting (spot and pinhole to centre of plate 16, the Variegated Iris), some foxing to text pages. Front joint broken, white tape mend to interior hinge at Preface. This is an early 1800s reprint of the first two volumes of William Curtis' periodical "The Botanical Magazine." This publication proved so popular that plates from the earlier volumes were reissued to satisfy the demand of later subscribers who desired a complete set. Curtis featured some of the most decorative and popular imported plants in these early volumes, making these volumes an absolute treat for the eye. Plants include Moss Rose, several varieties of Iris, Daffodil, Gentian, Eastern Poppy, Cyclamen, and, from China: #64 Tawny Day-Lily; #25 China Pink, #42 Rose Camellia. These are very strong impressions, which are particularly pleasing contrasted against the white color of the wove paper. .

        [AUTOGRAPH LETTER, SIGNED, FROM GOUVERNEUR MORRIS, AMERICAN FINANCIER AND FRAMER OF THE CONSTITUTION, TO HIS NEPHEW, JAMES MORRIS]

      Paris. Jan. 7, 1793.. [3]pp., docketed on verso of last leaf. Light fold lines. Near fine. A lengthy letter from Gouverneur Morris to his nephew, James Morris, providing details of a 1787 loan on which significant interest was still due from the debtor, Morris' older half-sister, Mary Morris Lawrence. Morris composed this letter while serving as U.S. Finance minister to France. Most of the text is an explanation of the interest due. He states that a recent payment was made through William Constable, Morris' former business partner and who, along with other Philadelphia associates, had loaned Morris the money needed to purchase the family estate, Morrisiana, in 1787. He then embarks on a description of the remaining debt and entreats his nephew to facilitate payment "speedily." Morris ends his letter with this statement: "I perfectly agree with you that a small sum on my farm with contentment is better than any thing in a situation like that in which I am now placed but the first of all enjoyments is that which results from doing our duty." Having previously served as an assistant to Robert Morris (no relation) in the Department of Finance under the Articles of Confederation, Morris was named to the Constitutional Convention in 1787. Credited with being that document's "stylist," he would write in a later letter to Thomas Pickering: "the Constitution was written by the hand which writes you this letter; having rejected all the equivocal and redundant terms, I thought it as clear as our language would permit." Morris would later serve in the U.S. Senate and participate in the re- mapping of the city of New York that was largely responsible for its present grid pattern. Good evidence of Morris' personal finances and a fine expression of his civic spirit. ANB 15, pp.898-99.
