        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. O'REILLY & REITMAN 606. KROEPELIEN 507.

        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.

        Bowyer's Edition of The History of England,

      ONT> 1793 - The complete Bowyer's edition of David Hume's seminal work, The History of England, offered here in the publisher's original bindings. A rare example of this work as it was originally offered to its subscribers, inpaper and cardfolios at One Guinea each Number, to be paid for on delivery. These volumes often also contain loosely inserted notes to the subscribers from Bowyer, apologising for delays to publication or for a decreased number of plates in a previous instalment- the latter being blamed on thetardiness of the various engravers commissioned for the project. Indeed, their raw state offers a unique insight into the financial woes that plagued Bowyer during the publication of this work and his need to keep wealthy subscribers happy. As, in 1806 (the date given to the title pages provided in the final 'index' instalment),after Bowyer had published five large folios reaching the year 1688, 'the work was ceased and never fully completed, owing to the high costs involved, a loss of 30,000 said already to have been incurred. ' (ODNB)These interesting publisher's notes also explain the rather sporadic allocation of engraved plates per volume -which vary between 1 and 5 in each folio - with Bowyer frequently promising four or more plates in following instalments, as recompense for previous 'two plate' folios. However, all plates are present, totalling the required 196 plates, including the frontispiece portrait of Hume, engraved dedications and engraved full-page chapter headings:1-10: [3] 1-36, [3] 37-72, [3] 73-108, [2] 109-144, [3] 145-180, [2] 181-216, [3] 217-252, [2] 253-288, [3] 289-324, [2] 325-360. 11-20: [3] 361-396, [3] 397-432, [3] 433-468, [3] 469-504, [3] 505-540, [3] 541-576, [2] 577-612, [3] 613-648, [3] 649-684, [2] 685-720. 21-30: [4] 721-759, [3] 1-40, [3] 41-80, [3] 81-119,[3] 121-160, [3] 161-200, [3] 201-240, [3] 241-280, [3] 281-320, [3] 321-360. 31-40: [3] 361-400, [3] 401-440, [3] 441-476, [3] 477-512, [2] 513-548, [3] 549-584, [3] 585-620, [3] 621-656, [3] 657-692, [3] 693-728. 41-50: [3] 729-776, [3] 777-824, [3] 825-872, [3] 873-883/1-36, [3] 37-84, [3] 85-132, [3] 133-180, [3] 181-227, [2] 229-276, [3] 277-324. 51-60: [3] 325-372, [3] 373-420, [3] 421-468,[3] 469-528, [3] 529-588, [3] 589-672, [3] 673-756, [2] 757-821, [2] 1-64, [3] 65-128. 61-65: (bound in one) [12]129-648. 66-70: [2] 649-752, [1] 753-836/1-20, [5] 21-124, [3] 125-288, [4] 289-487. Index: Five title pages and 'A Life of Hume'. Included alongside the complete work are additional duplicate volumes of numbers 62, 63 and 64: [3] 233-336, [2] 337-440, [3] 441-544. An extraordinary compendium of British history and art, this work isfascinating in its original state. However its included title pages and the careful designation of individual volumes by the publisher (with splits between the five planned volumesindicated in folios 22, 44 and59) also offer a rare opportunity to bind this deservedly revered history in a fine and personal binding. First edition thus. Scarce. Condition: In publisher's original bindings with paper labels. Externally, worn. Many have entirely lost their backstrips, those with remaining paper show splits, tears and lifting to backstrips. Boards are rubbed and marked, although labels are generally intact and legible. Majority of joints are starting but most boards are held firmly. Exceptions are 50, 52, 66 and 67 which have either very tender or detached (but present)boards. Internally, generally firmly bound but tender in places - namely: volumes 61-65 and 68 in which the plates are loose but present. Volume 33 is bound in upside down. Some variedfoxing throughout, generally confined to first plate of each folio and the tissueguards, most of which are present. Some offsetting onto endpapers involumes 40-50. Text is generally very bright and clean, as are many of the otherplates. Overall: GOOD. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        [SAMMELBAND OF SIX TITLES PRINTED IN THE EARLY FEDERAL PERIOD BY AND ABOUT THOMAS PAINE, INCLUDING HIS AGE OF REASON, RESPONSES TO THE WORK, AND THE AUTHOR'S TRIAL IN LONDON FOR A LIBEL CONTAINED IN Rights of Man]

      [Various places, publishers, dates,. and paginations, as enumerated below]. Contemporary calf, gilt label. Contemporary ownership inscription on front free endpaper. Text block internally separated from spine, text block split between first five titles and sixth title. Other parts of text block separating and splitting. Some foredges worn, some leaves loose. Age-toning, occasional foxing and staining. See below for additional descriptions of individual titles. About good. A wonderful collection of works by and about the controversial American author, Thomas Paine, all printed in the United States between 1793 and 1796 and collected in a single contemporary volume. The two works by Paine are THE AGE OF REASON and THE AGE OF REASON. PART THE SECOND; the three contemporary responses to Paine's writing include works by James Tytler, Gilbert Wakefield, and Ebenezer Bradford; and the sixth title is an early American edition of THE TRIAL OF THOMAS PAINE, concerning the Paine's trial as the author of seditious literature which began in London in December 1792. The titles contained in this volume are as follows: 1) Paine, Thomas: THE AGE OF REASON: BEING AN INVESTIGATION OF TRUE AND OF FABULOUS THEOLOGY. Boston: Thomas Hall, 1794. 58pp. 12mo. Lacks titlepage, pp.3-4 torn, with contemporary thread repair; pp.25-26 torn in upper corner (loss of page numbers and a few words), final blank has clean tear. One of Paine's most famous works, here in one of eight American editions printed in 1794, following French and English language editions published in France the same year. Paine's treatise on his religious beliefs created much controversy, and many authors wished to contribute to its refutation. "Paine completed THE AGE OF REASON (1794), an attack on organized Christianity and the idea of the divine inspiration of the Bible. A second part appeared in 1795. Although Paine, a deist, insisted, 'I believe in one God, and no more; and I hope for happiness beyond this life,' THE AGE OF REASON made his name anathema among the clergy and devout Christians on both sides of the Atlantic" - ANB. NAIP w031697. EVANS 27458. GIMBEL 89 (New York 1794 ed). OCLC 4917206, 26637983. ANB 16, pp.925-28 (Paine). 2) Paine, Thomas: THE AGE OF REASON. PART THE SECOND.

The second part of THE AGE OF REASON, first printed in France through the efforts of Joel Barlow while Paine was in prison in Luxembourg. "Paine had 15,000 copies of Part Two printed in English in Paris and forwarded them in September, 1795, to Benjamin Franklin Bache of Philadelphia. But these copies did not arrive in America until April, 1796, long after the work had been reprinted here, taken from the [earlier] London edition pirated by Symonds [also in 1795]" - Gimbel. NAIP w031706. EVANS 30942. GIMBEL 99 (Paris 1795 ed). OCLC 39441776, 20191906. 3) Tytler, James: PAINE'S SECOND PART OF THE AGE OF REASON ANSWERED. Salem: Thomas C. Cushing, 1796. 107pp. 12mo.

Wakefield's classic response to Paine's THE AGE OF REASON, printed in the same year as the first London edition.

Boston: Isaiah Thomas and Ebenezer T. Andrews, 1795. v,[2],8- 79pp. 12mo. Attributed by Evans to Bradford, this response to THE AGE OF REASON also includes remarks on Wakefield's response to Paine's text.

Gimbel notes that at the time of the trial "Paine was in France, sitting as a member of the French National Convention, which was acting as a jury in the trial of Louis XVI...Despite the brilliance of Paine's attorney, Thomas Erskine, Paine was found guilty, declared an outlaw and the RIGHTS OF MAN contraband." NAIP w038492. EVANS 26280. GIMBEL 78 (London 1793 ed). OCLC 9138093. An intriguing collection of American imprints by and about Paine, bound in a single contemporary volume.

        Droits de l'homme en réponse a l'attaque de M. Burke sur la Révolution françoise.

      Buisson, 1793-1792, Paris, - Due voll. in 8°, pagg. (4), 239, (1); (4), IV, 224; legatura mezza pelle, titoli oro su tassello. Il 1° volume appartiene alla seconda edizione (1793), mentre la risposta, 2° vol., è l'edizione originale. Con note e una nuova prefazione dell'Autore nel primo volume. L'opera forse più famosa del pubblicista e uomo politico anglo-americano che fu anche, durante la Rivoluzione Francese, membro della Convenzione Nazionale. Uomo di libere opinioni e fautore di ogni rivoluzione, da quella americana a quella francese, e per questo allontanato da Londra, a Parigi arrivò ad essere tra i giudici di Luigi XVI. In seguito ebbe un atteggiamento moderato nei confronti della sentenza definitiva circa le sorti del Re; questo spiacque a Robespierre, il quale lo escluse dalla Convenzione e poco dopo lo fece imprigionare. In cattività terminò un altro famoso libretto: "L'età della ragione" e in seguito, per rimostranze del Ministero Americano, ritornò in libertà e riprese il suo seggio nella Convenzione nel 1794. L'anno successivo pubblicò ancora "Dissertazioni sui primi principi del governo" e, a seguito della progressiva diminuzione della sua autorità, dopo la pace di Amiens ritornò negli Stati Uniti dove morì nel 1809. Ottimo stato. Non comune. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Elementos de cirurgia ocular ?.

      Lisbon, Na Officina de Simão Thaddeo Ferreira, 1793. - Woodcut Portuguese royal arms on title page. Typographical headpieces. viii, 279 pp., 3 folding engraved plates. 4°, late twentieth-century crimson full Oasis morocco, spine with raised bands in five compartments, gilt letter in second compartment from head, marbled endleaves, text-block edges with contemporary sprinkling. Crisp and clean. Overall fine. Early signature effaced from lower margin of title-page. ---- FIRST and ONLY EDITION of this textbook on the anatomy and diseases of the eye. Santa Anna was the first Portuguese to specialize in ophthalmology, and he raised that branch of medicine to a level previously unknown in his country. He acknowledges (pp. vii-viii) that the section of the @Elementos on anatomy and physiology is a translation of Deshais-Gendron's @Traité des maladies des yeux, 1770, but states that he made numerous corrections based on his own experience: "Aqui forão necessarias hum maior número de emendas, tanto em Anatomia, como em Fysica." Likewise the section on pathology and therapy is a translation from Plenck's @Doctrina de morbis oculorum, 1777, but has numerous corrections based on Santa Anna's experience. The first folding plate shows a surgeon and an assistant performing a cataract operation, while a dog sleeps peacefully behind the surgeon's chair. It is signed by Silva as artist and Queiroz as engraver. Gregorio Francisco de Queiroz (1768-1845) was one of the most skillful and most creative Portuguese engravers of any century, and produced an enormous oeuvre (Soares, @História da gravura artística em Portugal II, 439-90). The other two plates, showing instruments used in ophthalmology, are unsigned.---- Innocêncio IV, 91; XII, 95: referring to an edition of 1783 that is almost certainly a ghost; no other bibliography refers to it.

        Marie-Antoinette wird auf dem Revolutionsplatz (Place de la Concorde) zur Guillotine geführt., Radierung von Helman, Isidore Stanislas (1743 Lille - 1809 Paris).

      1793 - In der Platte signiert, betitelt "Journée du 16 Octobre 1793", bezeichnet "Dessiné par Monnet" und mit der Verlagsadresse Helmans. Feinzeichnender Druck mit Rand um die Einfassungslinie, unten mit dem vollen Schriftrand, rechts teilweise mit schmalem Rändchen um die Plattenkante. Auf Bütten (mit Wz.). Helman ist als Kupferstecher und Verleger in Paris tätig. Nach Zeichnungen seines Freundes Monnet stach er die Folge "Quinze jours de la Révolution", die im eigenen Verlag erschien und aus der wohl auch obiges Blatt stammt.
