        Beknopte natuurlijke historie der zoogende dieren. I-III. (Complete).

      . Leyden [Leiden], Honkoop and Du Mortier, 1793-1800. Three volumes in three. 8vo. Hand-coloured frontispiece, three title pages, each with hand-coloured engraved vignette, 1,180 [I (1793) vi, 363; II (1796) iv, 363; III (1800) iv, 440] pp., 27 [10; 8; 9 (including one large, double-folded] engraved and hand-coloured plates. Uniform contemporary polished half calf over speckled boards. Spines with burgundy morocco label with gilt title, gilt lines and oval green morocco labels with gilt-patterned borders and volume number. * Extremely rare hand-coloured copy of this very well-illustrated work on mammals (the title translates as "Concise natural history of mammals"), written by the Dutch politician, writer, playwright, translator and zoologist Jan David Pasteur (1753-1804), whose portrait is shown in the frontispiece of volume one. The title page shows two nude children teasing a lion. The author entered Leyden University at the age of 13. He translated several natural history and travel books into Dutch, including James Cook's "A voyage to the Pacific Ocean", Levaillant's "Voyage dans l'Interieur de l'Afrique, par le Cap de Bonne-Esperance", and Faujus de Saint Fond's "Histoire naturelle de la montagne de Saint-Pierre de Maestricht". In the present original work, Pasteur used the Linnaean system and is quite accurate in his descriptions and illustrations. The plates show over 140 mammals, including the orangutan, the quagga, and the Bolognese dog. A large plate of a stranded sperm whale is spectacular. There is only one auction record in the last 35 years. There are only three copies in Dutch libraries (fide Landwehr), not all of them hand-coloured. Landwehr, 156. Neither in the Cat. BM(NH), nor in Nissen ZBI, nor in Casey Wood..

        [AUTOGRAPH LETTER, SIGNED, FROM GOVERNOR SAMUEL HUNTINGTON TO HENRY KNOX REGARDING CONNECTICUT'S REACTION TO THE NEUTRALITY PROCLAMATION]

      Norwich, Ct. Aug. 16, 1793.. [1]p. Folio. Old fold lines. Later paper strip attached to top of verso. Slight separation at some folds. Minor toning. Docketed on verso. Very good. In a half cloth clamshell case, gilt leather label. The retained copy of a letter written by Samuel Huntington, but entirely in his hand and signed by him. Huntington was a Signer of the Declaration of Independence and Governor of Connecticut, and here writes to Secretary of War Major General Henry Knox, indicating receipt of the terms of neutrality which the United States adopted towards Britain and France, and Connecticut's willingness to abide by those terms. Samuel Huntington was a Signer of the Declaration of Independence, served as President of the Continental Congress, and was the third governor of Connecticut, serving for ten years, until his death in 1793. Henry Knox served with distinction during the American Revolution; he was charged with Washington's famous crossing of the Delaware River, and the successful completion of that mission earned him the promotion to brigadier general. He was one of the founding members of the Society of the Cincinnati and was the nation's first Secretary of War. On April 22, 1793, George Washington issued a statement announcing that the United States would maintain a policy of strict neutrality in the conflict between France and Britain, resulting from the French Revolution. This was the first major international conflict facing the newly formed United States, and it involved her ally, France. One of the concerns of the American government was that America not be seen to be interfering in trade - privateering to the hindrance of one side or the other. The assurances on Governor Huntington's part most likely refer to the willingness of Connecticut ship captains to abide by the law of the land and maintain U.S. neutrality. He writes: "Sir, I am on this day favoured with your two letters of the 7th instant containing the rules & regulations which the President of the United States has thought proper to adopt for a uniform line of conduct throughout the several states with respect to the belligerent powers; and also the regulations agreed upon between the general government & the Minister of France. You may be assured, sir, that a strict observance will be paid to the directions and regulations contained in those letters. I have also the satisfaction to inform you, that the inhabitants of this state appear sincerely disposed to observe a just neutrallity [sic] conformably to the tenor of the proclamation which was issued by the President on that subject and have reason to believe that the general sense & sentiment of the citizens of this state will prevent all infractions of the laws of nations as relative to the powers at war." A nice document, referring to early Federal policy, penned by one of the Signers of the Declaration of Independence.

Mit seinen Illustrationen zu Samuel Butlers Knittelversen machte sich William Hogarth erstmals einen Namen als Kupferstecher. "Hogarth hat zu diesem Gedicht zwei verschiedene Folgen von Illustrationen gestochen: zwölf grosse, sorgfältiger ausgearbeitete Kupferstiche, die er selbständig, unabhängig von einem Verleger geschaffen und im Februar 1726 herausgegeben hat, und siebzehn kleinere, die mehr Holzschnittcharakter haben und vermutlich früher entstanden, aber erst im darauffolgenden April in einer Gedichtausgabe erschienen sind. Diese folgen dem Verlauf der Handlung, während die grossen Blätter nur die entscheidenden Szenen mit einem gekürzten Textauszug als Legende wiedergeben...Epos und Bilder sind eine antiheroische Satire auf Puritanertum und Sektenwesen" (Margrit Bachofen-Moser in Hogarth-Katalog Zürich, 1983, SS. 25 ff.). "200 copies printed, some with the plates in red, others in black. An elegant edition edited by Dr. Nash, the historian of Worcestershire, who has added a variety of entertaining notes" (Lowndes, The The Bibliographer's Manual of English Literature, S. 313).

        The literary life of the late Thomas Pennant, Esq. By himself [hand-colored]

      Sold by Benjamin and John White, Fleet-Street, and Robert Faulder, New Bond Street M.DCC.XCIII. [1793], London - 4to: [6],144pp, copper-engraved portrait frontispiece of Pennant ("Tho.s Gainsborough, pinx.t 1776, engraved by W. Ridley"), two copper-engraved full-page plates (view of the Church of Fountains Abby and portrait of the reverend John Lloyd ("constant friend companion & assistant to Thomas Pennant"—often lacking) and folding engraved plate of The Church Militant (almost always lacking), with contemporary hand-coloring, bound in at page 21. Modern three-quarter mid-tan calf gilt, olive-green leather lettering piece gilt, five raised bands ruled in gilt, cinnamon cloth sides, top edge gilt, end papers renewed. An excellent copy, with minor discoloration to spine; text bright and fresh (fore-edge of final page soiled); upper inner margins of plates uniformly water-stained, touching image of one plate only; colored plate lightly foxed. Sabin 59758. ESTC Citation No. T845. OCLC Number: 2804597. First Edition. The Literary Life hints at both Pennant's sense of humor ("The title-page announces the termination of my authorial existence, which took place on March 1st, 1791.") and immense industry beyond just the natural history and traveling writing that made him famous. It is signed only by dotted lines to indicate the author's death (in fact, Pennant lived for five years after its publication) and the History of the Parishes ends with ‘RESURGAM,' implying literary resurrection. The book's several collected shorter works (the appendices) highlight Pennant's responsibilities as high sheriff of Flintshire, as pamphleteer on road management and the militia laws, and as improver of his own estates. Includes an appendix on the Patagonians and notices of Falkner's travels in Bolivia, La Plata and the Straits of Magellan.

        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 ENDEAVOR STRAITS AND THE ISLAND OF TIMOR

      Berwick: Printed by and for W. Phorson, 1793.. 164pp. plus frontispiece portrait. Modern polished calf, spine gilt with leather labels. Some light foxing and toning. Very good. This rare Pacific voyage account is based on the journal kept by the surgeon on board the frigate PANDORA, under the command of Captain Edward Edwards. The purpose of the voyage was to capture the BOUNTY mutineers, whose existence became known with Bligh's return to England in 1790. At Tahiti the Edwards expedition managed to arrest fourteen of the mutineers, placing them in a makeshift cage contructed on the quarterdeck of the ship which was called "Pandora's Box." These would be the only mutineers captured by the PANDORA. "Later in the voyage, the ship was wrecked on the Pandora Reef in Endeavour Strait. Captain Edwards left the prisoners to drown, but the master-at-arms dropped the keys to the mutineers and ten of the fourteen survived. Returning to England in 1792, the mutineers were tried by a court martial; three were hanged, the rest pardoned or acquitted. Edwards was also instructed to survey the Endeavour Straits in the course of his voyage, and to determine the best passage to Botany Bay. He succeeded in this mission, and made some discoveries as well, among them Ducie Island, Nukunono Island, Rotuma Island, the Duke of York's Island, Anuda Island, and Pitt Island" - Hill. Sir John Barrow in THE EVENTFUL HISTORY OF THE MUTINY AND PIRATICAL SEIZURE OF H.M.S. BOUNTY (1831), writes rather disparagingly of Hamilton's account: "The only published account of this voyage is contained in a small volume of Mr. George Hamilton, the surgeon, who appears to have been a coarse, vulgar and illiterate man...disposed to relate licentious scenes and adventures, in which he and his companions were engaged..." But Fuguson responds: "This criticism is somewhat severe, because in his narrative the author displays power of observation and good sense, though sometimes relating unbecoming scenes ashore." An important and fascinating Pacific voyage account. Very rare in any condition, especially in the original boards, untrimmed. The NUC locates only four copies, those at the Newberry, Boston Public, John Carter Brown and Yale. Ferguson adds three more Australian institutional copies. FURGUSON 151. HILL 766.

        The Cratylus, Phaedo, Parmenides, Timaeus, and Critias of Plato translated from the Greek by Thomas Taylor, with notes on the Cratylus, and an explanatory introduction to each dialogue.

      Benjamin and John White, London 1793 - First Taylor edition, 8vo, pp. xxiii, [1], 554, [1] errata; slightly later polished brown calf, double gilt rules on covers enclosing an ornate blindstamped border, rebacked, black morocco label on gilt paneled spine; good and sound. Bookplates of Francis M. Cunningham and Prof. Henry Jackson. Brueggemann, p. 154: "The translator's reverence for his author has determined him to aim at literal exactness, rather than at flowing and elegant periods. Accordingly, this translation, with all its singularities and defects, will be found an useful work. The learned reader will find, that though this translation is in certain parts somewhat more difficult, than perfectly accords with the translator's plan of literal exactness, it on the whole gives the sense of the original with tolerable accuracy. Mr. Taylor will, we hope, persevere in his purpose of translating the rest of the Dialogues of Plato not attempted by Mr. Syndenham" (Analectical Review for October, 1793).

        PRINTED COMMISSION, COMPLETED IN MANUSCRIPT, SIGNED BY LÉGÉR-FÉLICITÉ SONTHONAX, APPOINTING THE MULATTO GENERAL VILLATE AS COMMANDER OF CAP- FRANÇAIS].

      Cap-Français. Oct. 10, 1793. - Broadside, 18 1/2 x 11 3/4 inches, completed in manuscript. Old fold lines. Light wear and soiling. Very good. During the early years of the French Revolution, Sonthonax was the civil commissioner of Saint-Domingue, which would soon become Haiti. A radical Jacobin, he presided over a chaotic period of conflicts between royalists and revolutionaries, and between whites, free people of color, and slaves in full revolt. He is most remembered for freeing the colony's slaves on Aug. 29, 1793, in an effort to gain the support of Toussaint L'Ouverture's forces against the Spanish. This document appoints the mulatto general Villate, a rival of Toussaint's, as military commander of the Cape. It is signed by Sonthonax and countersigned by French military leader Etienne LaVeaux, who later assumed the governorship for himself, but he held power only briefly before being deposed by Toussaint. A large woodcut vignette proclaiming "La Republique Française, Une et Indivisible" heads the document. All early printed material from Saint Domingue is, in and of itself, rare by nature. A handsome and important piece, signed by two important figures in the early Haitian revolution, formalizing the rise to power of a third.
