        A Rajah at Prayer] Radjah priant No. 2

      [India 1793 - Provenance: Marie Anne Solvyns (1781-1844); sold by Francis Edwards in 1929 to; a Bombay collector; purchased in the mid-1980s by Niall Hobhouse An original watercolour study by Solvyns for his monumental work Les Hindous. "Sometime in 1793, though possibly earlier, Solvyns began work on what was to become his life consuming project, a collection of etchings portraying the Hindus in their costumes, occupations, and cultural life . It was the most ambitious publishing venture yet undertaken in India . For some time, Solvyns had wandered with his sketchbook through Calcutta and its environs, drawing Indians in their occupational pursuits, their festivals, and the rich diversity of their cultural lives. He drew their musical instruments, their boats, their carts, and their modes of smoking. With genuine curiosity and a keenly observant and sympathetic eye, Solvyns recorded an India few Europeans really saw" (Hardgrave). Solvyns, a Flemish artist, had arrived in India in 1790. He first proposed the project in February 1794, but did not complete the work until mid-November 1796. It was a massive project: purchasing and importing the copper plates, producing the thin hand-made paper for the etchings (the paper on which they are mounted being imported from Europe), etching and hand colouring, were all undertaken largely by Solvyns himself. "Indeed it was the most ambitious printing project undertaken in all India to that time" (Hardgrave). By 1803, Solvyns left India in dire financial straits, his publication nearly bankrupting him. After returning to Brussels, and subsequently moving to Paris, Solvyns began a new set of etchings after his original drawings. This reworking and rewriting took years, and it was not until 1808 that the first part of his new edition Les Hindous was published. Over the next four years it was issued in 48 parts with a total of 288 colour-printed plates, all beautifully finished by hand. The final result, of a quality to a more European standard than the Calcutta original, proved to be an influential model for the Company School of Indian artists during the 19th century who produced suites of drawings of occupations for the British serving in India. The Victoria and Albert Museum holds a set of 248 original drawings by Solvyns (two images short of the complete Calcutta edition) believed to have been prepared by Solvyns for presentation. "For at least some of the subjects, Solvyns did more than one copy of the watercolor in preparation for the etchings, for in addition to the drawings in the Victoria and Albert Museum, an album that Solvyn's widow, Marie Anne, presented in 1829 to a friend or patron of her husband contained a number of drawings, at various stages of completion, that were later fully realized in the etchings. The album . contained 41 drawings, some fully complete and watercoloured; others were pencil sketch studies." The present watercolour is from that album. Titled in Solvyn's hand at the top "Radjah priant No. 2" the image was not included in the Calcutta edition, but would appear, reversed as usual (see Hardgrave), in the Paris edition, captioned Rajah Hindoo Prince at his Prayers. Hardgrave writes of this image: "The raja depicted is Ishwar Chandra of Nadia (1747-1802), who, like his grandfather, the famous Maharaja Krishna Chandra Roy, and many of the rajas of Nadia before him, was a Sanskrit scholar and patron of poets and religion. He became raja in 1788 and resided in Krishnagar, then a center of Sanskrit learning, the capital of Nadia and located about 60 miles north of Calcutta on the Hugli river" (Hardgrave, pp. 164-165). Solvyns here depicts the rajah kneeling in prayer on a tiger skin with a pothi (traditional unbound prayer book made of palm leaves) in front of him, with beads (rudraksas) adorning his arms, neck and head and a cloth (gomukha) covering his right arm.

        The Trial of Rev. Thomas Fyshe Palmer, Before the Circuit Court of Justiciary, Held at Perth, on the 12th and 13th September, 1792, on an Indictment for Seditious Practices, Taken in Court Short-hand, by Mr. Ramsey, an eminent Short-Hand Writer from

      London Edinburgh: Printed for William Skirving by James Robertson; W Berry; R Galloway Glasgow; E Leslie Dundee; G McFarlane Perth; J Ridgeway H D Symonds and Marson & Ramsey London First edition 1793 - 8vo., (octavo), 195 pages, lacking portrait frontispiece? (although I have not yet seen a copy with a frontispiece). Bound in good quality twentieth century half calf, gilt ruled spine in compartments with contrasting morocco title label. A VG+ copy of this rare work in an attractive binding. (Reference: Ferguson, 166). Thomas Fyshe Palmer, the son of a Bedfordshire landowner, was born in August 1747. After being educated at Eton and Queen's College, Cambridge, he became a curate at Leatherhead in Surrey. Palmer came under the influence of the radical preacher, Joseph Priestley. Palmer became dissatisfied with the doctrines of the Church of England and moved to Montrose in Scotland where he joined a group of Unitarians who had opened a chapel in the town. In 1792, Charles Grey, Richard Sheridan, Major John Cartwright, Lord John Russell,and a few other politicians in favour of parliamentary reform established the Friends of the People. Palmer decided to form a similar organisation called Friends of Liberty in Dundee. Government spies attended these meetings and on 12th September 1793 Palmer was arrested and charged with writing a seditious pamphlet, Dundee Address to the Friends of Liberty. The authorities claimed that Palmer was guilty of "writing or printing seditious or inflammatory writing, calculated to produce a spirit of discontent in the minds of the people against the present happy constitution and government of this country, and to rouse them up to acts of outrage and violence". At his trial Palmer was accused of supplying William Skirving of Strathruddle with 100 copies of Dundee Address to the Friends of Liberty for distribution in Scotland. It was also claimed that Palmer had been attending meetings of the Friends of the People. The prosecutor called Palmer "the most determined rebel in Scotland" and suggested that if it were not for "societies calling themselves Friends of the People, there would be no war with France, since the French would never have been so mad as to attack the British nation." Palmer was found guilty and sentenced to seven years transportation. Attempts to stop the men being transported failed and on 2nd May 1794, The Surprise left Portsmouth and began its 13,000 mile journey to Botany Bay. While the ship was at sea, a group of convicts, including Joseph Fyshe Palmer and William Skirving, were accused of being involved in a plot to kill the captain and crew. Later, Palmer wrote a pamphlet accusing Margarot of exposing the plot to the captain. However, an investigation carried out by Francis Place, found that there was no evidence to support Palmer's accusations. As a political prisoner Palmer enjoyed more freedom than other convicts and was allowed to establish a successful business transporting goods to Norfolk Island. Unlike some of the Scottish Martyrs, Palmer appeared to get on well with the military in New South Wales. Palmer's sentence expired in September 1800 and at the beginning of 1801 he sailed for Britain in a captured Spanish ship. After a bad storm the ship was forced to seek refuge at Guam. The island was under the control of the Spanish and the passengers and crew of the ship were taken into captivity. Held as a prisoner of war, Joseph Fyshe Palmer died of dysentery on 2nd January 1802. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        THE UNITED STATES OF NORTH AMERICA: WITH THE BRITISH TERRITORIES AND THOSE OF SPAIN, ACCORDING TO THE TREATY, OF 1784.

      London: Wm. Faden, Feby. 11th, . 1793 - Copper-engraved map, with full original color. Sheet size: 24 1/8 x 31 1/8 inches. In excellent condition. The extremely rare fifth issue of one of the most important early maps of the United States. Faden's sequence of maps of the United States represents one of the most important cartographic depictions of the newly independent republic. The present map is the fifth issue of the fourteen total appellations (including the parent plan and thirteen subsequent issues), and is one of the extremely rare first five appellations of this series which almost never appear on the market. The Faden sequence comprises a critical and fascinating series of historical documents regarding the political development of the United States, especially since each issue captures a distinct stage in America's process of transformative change. The present map depicts the United States' boundaries as having been settled by the Treaty of 1784, when in actuality it is referring to the settlement agreed to at the signing of the Treaty of Paris on September 3rd, 1783, which ended the Revolutionary War. This treaty did not actually come into force until April, 1784. This map is in part based on John Mitchell's A MAP OF THE BRITISH AND FRENCH DOMINIONS IN NORTH AMERICA (1755) that was used by delegates during the treaty process. While the United States was granted a large territory from the Atlantic to the Mississippi River, and from the northern frontiers of Florida to the Canadian border, this map shows that the settled area of the nation was confined to the former Thirteen Colonies, and the two newly admitted states of Vermont (1791) and Kentucky (1792). Even then, the western boundaries of many of the states, past the Appalachians, are undefined. Although Washington, D.C. was in the process of being laid out, it was not yet built, and is absent from the map. One of the most interesting aspects of the map is its labeling of "Franklinia" or the "New State of Franklin." This refers to an attempt by settlers in the Great Smoky Mountains to secede from North Carolina and to form a new state. From 1785 to 1789, seven of the states of the Union endorsed the plan, but it failed to achieve the required two-thirds support to be admitted as a state at the Constitutional Convention. Various lands in Kentucky and the future Tennessee are shown to be reserved for war veterans from "Virginia" and "North Carolina." Another curious appearance is the name of "Indiana" in what is now West Virginia, but nowhere near the future state of that name. Various areas in the southern Midwest are shown to be owned by private land development companies including the "Wabash" and "Ohio" companies. One such enterprise was headed by "Colonel Simmes [sic]," John Cleves Symmes (1742- 1814), an eccentric New Jersey magistrate who later wrote a book which theorized that the interior of the earth was both hollow and inhabitable, and could be entered through the poles. In the same treaty, Spain received possession of Florida from Britain, and the vast Louisiana Territory from France. In the north, although the treaty was supposed to have settled the boundary with Canada from the Great Plains to the Atlantic, a series of geographic misconceptions left the frontier in a nebulous state. Faden elected to present the extreme British conception of the border in northern Maine, and in the northwest the border was supposed to run west to the source of the Mississippi, when in reality the source was located well to the south. The map also features "The Twenty Leagues Line" located off of the east coast that marked the exclusive maritime jurisdiction of the United States. The composition is completed by an especially finely engraved and colored title cartouche which depicts scenes of commerce in the prosperous new nation.

Though it ".was undertaken by the especial order of Charles the Third, who demanded of its author a complete history of the Spanish discoveries and conquests in America," (Ticknor: History of Spanish Literature, III, p.305) there was much opposition to the work -only the King's intervention led to this first volume being printed at all- while further volumes, to carry the work beyond 1500, were never published. "A large portion of the volume we have, is devoted to narrations of the character of the Indians, and their treatment by Columbus, which Munoz declares to have been eminently humane, although he early countenanced, and even directed, their reduction to slavery," (Field, Indian Bibliography, p. 286).

        Clavierauszug von Mozarts Zauberfloete.

      Simmrock (sic), Bonn 1793 - Fürs Clavier eingerichtet von Fridrich Eunike. In-4 oblong de 146 pp., la dernière non chiffrée; pp. 125-134, 57-60; titre, pp. 14-16, 65-68, (2) pp. dont 1 bl., titre, 9 pp. dont 3 bl.; titre, pp. 24-27, (1) p.bl. : demi-vélin de l?époque, étiquette manuscrite au premier plat. Édition entièrement gravée de la réduction pour piano de la Flûte enchantée. Le titre offre une ravissante vignette dessinée et gravée sur cuivre par Pflugfelder. Notre exemplaire est issu de la planche n° 4. C?est l?une des premières éditions à réunir toutes les parties vocales de l?opéra en un seul volume. Elle succède à celles d?Artaria et de Kozeluch dans le Musikalisches Magazin qui parurent simultanément entre 1791 et 1793. Ces éditions publiées en fascicules organisent les parties vocales selon des critères inexpliquables. Avec le Requiem, La Flûte enchantée clôt le répertoire foisonnant de Mozart qui devait disparaître peu après son achèvement. Cette fantaisie allemande, s?inscrivant dans l?imaginaire romantique, fut représentée pour la première fois le 30 septembre 1791, sous la baguette du compositeur. Les Viennois tombèrent très vite sous son charme : en octobre 1795, on compta plus de 200 représentations. Tôt ou tard, les échos de ce succès finirent par atteindre le public français. En 1801, l?opéra fit l?objet d?un arrangement par Morel et Lachnith incorporant à la Flûte enchantée des fragments tirés d?autres ouvrages de Mozart et des symphonies de Haydn. Pendant longtemps encore les Français associeront l?opéra à cet arrangement intitulé Les Mystères d?Isis. Relié à la suite :Airs nos 21 et 10 de L?Enlèvement du Sérail : « Traurigkeit ward mir zum Loose », « Nie werd ich deine Huld verkennen ». Air n° 3 de La Meunière de Paisello, avec accompagnement au piano arrangé par C.G. Neefe : « Sperate, sperate miobell?Adoncino ». Bonn, Simrock, sans date.Airs nos 15 et 12 de l?opéra L?Arbre de Diane : « Occhietto furbetto », « Se il vuoi saperio son amor ». La Coquette, morceau détaché pour le piano forte ou clavecin, composée par Hermann. Gravée par Mme Oger. Paris, Naderman, sans date.14e Ouverture arrangée pour une guitare et un violon par P. Porro.

        ATLAS : CARTES, PLANS ET VUES DU MONDE ENTIER. Colored Maps

      - Nuremberg et Amsterdam principalement. Extrême fin XVIIème - début XIXème siècle. Format oblong in-Plano 54x64 cm. Recueil de cartes anciennes rassemblées et reliées au début du XIXème siècle. La majorité des cartes (COLOREES !) sont l'oeuvre de Frédéric de Witt d'Amsterdam et de Jean-Baptiste Homann (et ses héritiers) de Nuremberg (soit fin XVIIème - première moitié XVIIIème siècle). Des cartes non colorées et plus récentes d'origine française pour la plupart (seconde moitié du XVIIIème siècle et dans de rares cas début du XIXème siècle) ont été intercalées à la suite de chaque pays ou région. Cet ensemble exceptionnel représente ainsi 193 feuillets in-plano portant une ou plusieurs cartes, plans ou vues. Différentes numérotations à la plume laissent supposer que plusieurs ouvrages différents de moindre envergure ont servi à la constitution de cet ensemble imposant. Celui-ci se présente actuellement dans une reliure utilitaire en demi-parchemin à coins du XIXème siècle. Traces d'usage sur la reliure et poussière sur la tranche des cartes, quelques feuillets légèrement brunis, sinon contenu en bon état général.

        Recopilação dos successos principaes da historia sagrada em verso ?. Segunda impressão @[sic], augmentada, correcta, e addicionada com hum index alphabetico, que lhe serve de annotaçoens.

      Lisbon, Na Off. de Antonio Rodrigues Galhardo, 1793. - Woodcut vignette of a laurel wreath on title page. Typographical headpieces. 184 pp. 8°, contemporary tree calf (slight wear, upper cover with some chafing), flat spine gilt with two citron morocco lettering pieces, gilt letter, marbled endleaves. In fine condition. ---- Third and best edition of this poem in 1,998 verses, considerably expanded from the first edition of Lisbon, 1776 and the second edition of Porto, 1792 by the addition of a lengthy index (pp. 77-184). Innocêncio and Blake state, incorrectly according to Borba de Moraes, that the first edition had only appeared in 1792. A fourth edition?actually a reissue?appeared in 1819 with a different title (@História sagrada em verso) and without the index. The poem is a summary of events in Scripture, meant for the use and edification of Portuguese youth. It appeared well before the author's major collection of poetry, @Viola de Lereno, published in 1798 and 1826. Wilson Martins (II, 76) cites the appearance of this third edition, along with Francisco de Mello Franco's @Reino da estupidez and Gonzaga's @Marilia de Dirceu, as signs of "amadurecimento nacional no qual a tradição e a ambição se absorvem dialeticamente uma na outra."Caldas Barbosa was probably born in Rio de Janeiro in 1740; his mixed parentage (father Portuguese, mother African) led some nineteenth-century critics to dub him the "mulatto muse." When his satirical poetry offended some powerful citizens of his native city, he was sent to serve in the army at Colonia do Sacramento, in present-day Uruguay, for several years, until 1762. After another 7 or 8 years in Rio de Janeiro he moved to Lisbon, where he became the protégé of the Count of Pombeiro and was widely acclaimed as a singer and poet until his sudden death in 1800. Varnhagen describes the author's popularity in Lisbon society: his presence "se tornou quase uma necessidade de todas as festas, sobretudo nas partidas do campo. Nas aristocráticas reuniões das Caldas, nos cansados banhos de mar, nos pitorescos passeios de Sintra, em Belas, em Queluz, em Benfica, sociedade onde não se ahcava o fulo Caldas com sua viola não se julgava completa" (@Florilégio da poesia brasileira, quoted in W. Martins II:7, n. 578).A founder and president of the major literary establishment in Portugal during the eighteenth century, the Nova Arcadia, Caldas Barbosa's nom-de-plume was "Lereno"?hence @Viola de Lereno, "Lereno's guitar." Bandeira describes Caldas Barbosa as the "first Brazilian whose poetry has an entirely native flavor" (@Brief History of Brazilian Literature p. 61). He introduced Afro-Brazilian folk themes to Portugal by composing @lundas, comic popular songs of African origin in which Brazilian-Indian and African speech were used, and wrote many @modinhas, sentimental songs without music taken from Portuguese @modas.Sílvio Romero (quoted in the Rio de Janeiro, 1944 edition of @Viola de Lereno, ed. Francisco de Assis Barbosa) gives evidence of Caldas Barbosa's popularity in Brazil: "Quase todas as cantigas de Lereno correm de boca em boca nas classes plebéias truncadas ou ampliadas. Formam um material de que o povo se apoderou, modelando-o ao seu sabor. Tenho dêsse fato uma prova direita. Quando em algumas provincias do norte colligí grande cópia de canções populares, repetidas vêzes, colhí cantigas de Caldas Barbosa, como anônimas, repetidas por analfabetos. Foi depois preciso compulsar as obras do poeta par expungir da coleção anônima os versos que lhe pertenciam. É o maior elogio que, sob o ponto de vista etnográfico, se lhe pode fazer" (I, xvii-xviii).---- Borba de Moraes (1983) I, 72; @Período colonial pp. 45-6. Blake II, 198: giving the title as @Recapitulação dos successos . . . . Innocêncio II, 186: "consideravelmente melhorada." JCB, @Portuguese and Brazilian Books 793/1.Not in Bosch or Rodrigues. Not in Palha. Not in Welsh, @Greenlee Catalogue or @Ticknor Catalogue. Not in Azevedo-Samodães, Ameal, Avila-Perez or Monteverde. See also Jong, @Four Hun [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
