        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.

Mit einem chronologischen Verzeichnis der arabischen bzw. maurischen Monarchen, die in Spanien regierten. - Gonzalvo di Cordova (the popular name of Gonzalo Hernandez y Aguilar), a renowned Spanish soldier, was born at Montilla, near Cordova; he first became prominent in the wars with the Moors of Granada and with Portugal, and was rewarded with an estate and pensioned; in 1498 he so distinguished himself in assisting the king of Naples (Ferdinand II.) to drive out the French that he became known henceforth as El Gran Capitan, and was created Duke of San Angelo; subsequent heroic achievements in Naples, which won the kingdom for Spain (1503), roused a feeling of jealousy in the Spanish king, so that Gonzalvo was recalled and ill-requited for his great services (1453-1515). - Teil 1 anfangs im breiten weißen Rand wasserfleckig, sonst sauber.

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.

BEING AN INVESTIGATION OF TRUE AND OF FABULOUS THEOLOGY. [Philadelphia]: Printed [by Benjamin Franklin Bache] for the booksellers, 1796. vii,100pp. including half title. 12mo. 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.

He had also served as the second editor of the ENCYCLOPEDIA BRITANNICA between 1776 and 1784. He emigrated to America in 1793 and published a newspaper in Salem until his death in 1805. NAIP w027560.

        Hay Makers

      Published by William Ward, London 1793 - An early Romantic view of rural life in England after a painting by 18th and 19th century master, James Ward. William Ward (1766-1826) colour mezzotint rendition of his brother James' painting, "Haymakers at Rest" is a superb example of the late 18th century, British genre print, which frequently depicted the lives of "ordinary" rural folk. The subjects in these images tend to be generic types, rather than individuals, and the activities frequently commonplace. There is no moral and barely a story: after having worked hard in the hot sun, the workers relax in the shade, so stunned by their fatigue they hardly speak or interact. The purpose and justification of the image is that it is a picture of "us", of life in the common, (for them) British identity, and the great human commonality we all share. James Ward was one of the most noted artists of his day, his individual style and superior skill distinguished him from his contemporaries, and his outstanding work influenced the development of British art. Considered to be one of the most important animal painters of his generation, Ward also produced portraits, landscapes, genre and history paintings. He began his career as an engraver, studying under his brother William, who later went on to engrave many of his paintings. The images produced from the pairing of William and James Ward epitomize the best of English art, their fine technical skill and inspired artistic imagination combine to create enduring pictures that speak of the taste and beauty of the age. The work of James Ward is worthy of history's praise; it influenced the art of Delacroix and Géricault, and changed the face of British painting. This magnificent work is reminiscent of the genre paintings of George Morland who greatly influenced the work of James and William. Grundy James Ward p.71, no.59; Beckett, The Life and Work of James Ward p. 11, 22. Colour printed mezzotint with additional hand-colouring. In good condition with the exception of some small skillfully mended tears in the margins.

        The History of the Scottish Stage, from its first establishment to the present time; With a Distinct Narrative of some Recent Theatrical Transactions. The whole necessarily interspersed with Memoirs of his Own life, by John Jackson, ten years manager at the Theatre Royal of Edinburgh.

      Edinburgh: Printed for Peter Hill and G. G. J. and J. Robinson. London 1793 - FIRST EDITION. 8vo, pp. xiv, [15 - 16 [17 errata, 18 blank], 424, 41 [42 blank], including half-title, contemporary calf, red morocco label; joints neatly restored. A very good copy. Jackson's involvement with the Edinburgh theatre began with his acting debut in 1761 and terminated, after his second term as manager, about 1809. A vain and sometimes unscrupulous man, Jackdson (1729/30 - 1806) made a better manager than an actor; though one might regard his financially frustrated bid (following the success of his opening season in Edinburgh) to work together the theatres of Edinburgh, Glasgow, Dundee, and Aberdeen, as a measure of his vanity rather than his entrepreneurial capabilities. However, his tenure as manager was nothing if not eventful and witnessed "one of the most extraordinary cases of persecution that ever disgraced a theatrical audience" (Dibdin), namely, the unprovoked and otiose attacks upon the actor Fennell, which resulted in his published account of the affair, an account corroborated by Jackson when he retired from the Edinburgh stage. Jackson also provides an account of the events leading up to the birth of the legal theatre in Scotland--a sequence of events which saw some actual conflict in the theatre stalls as well as a fierce pamphlet war over the grant of patent. The eventual victor in that dispute, David Ross, whose own integrity may not have been perfect, became the first manager of the Edinburgh Theatre Royal; from him, Jackson acquired the patent in 1781 "on advantageous terms." The controversies did not end here, as one may seen from that part of the above volume devoted to the "Statement of facts, explanatory of the dispute between John Jackson and Stephen Kemble, relative to the Theatre Royal of Edinburgh" (Lowe Arnott and Robinson 1954), which had been issued separately and in advance of Jackson's History, "to give an early statement of Jackson's arguments in the quarrel between Kembel and himself" (Lowe). Dibdin terms Jackson's History "that most pompous and inaccurate work," but its account - biased and instructive in about equal parts - provides a unique insight into a turbulent period of Scottish theatre. This issue conforms to the description in ESTC T36525, viz., "In this issue, the text on pp.295-296, beginning on p.295, line 11, and ending at the foot of p.296 is present; the documents numbered xviii-xxii are removed from the appendix by the partial resetting of sig.2e4 and by cancelling leaves 2f1-3; signature *Mm4 appears to be a whole-sheet cancel."

        The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania: Manuscript land Grant Signed by Thomas Mifflin,

      Pennsylvania, 1793. Thomas Mifflin, was the first Governor of Pennsylvania and a signer from the state of the U.S. Constitution; Mathew Irwin returned to Philadelphia after the Revolution and set up business with his brother in the firm of Mathew and Thomas Irwin & Company. Irwin became master of rolls and recorder of deeds for Philadelphia in 1785 and A.J. Dallas, was the first United States Supreme Court Reporter of Decisions and acting secretary of the treasury under James Madison. All three signed this land grant called "The Manor" purchased by Henry Drinker in 1793 (the same year of the Yellow Fever epidemic in Pennsylvania). Henry Drinker, a Quaker, was an important early land holder in Northeastern Pennsylvania, purchasing some 25,000 acres from the state. His wife, Elizabeth Sandwith Drinker was instrumental in keeping a journal for over fifty years that scholars turn to for details of Philadelphia domestic life in the second half of the eighteenth century.

        A Carriers Stable

      Published by T. Simpson, London 1793 - A fine rural scene by Ward after Morland. A wonderful rural genre scene in which love darts out and is acknowledged in an unlikely location, while the horses eat and a fellow worker snoozes. The young couple holds hands and share a long loving gaze beside an open stable door that seems to symbolize unconfined happiness and new possibilities. The whole story is rendered in a simple, understated way, in the which the feelings and implications are latent. There is nothing comic, critical or condescending in the artist's rendition, the theme of which could hardly be more simple or universal. George Morland was one of the most successful genre painters of his time, creating, during his industrious career, some of England's most cherished paintings. At an early age Morland displayed his artistic genius, he learned to paint at three and exhibited his first work at the Royal Academy at the mere age of ten. He was a prodigious painter, producing more than 4000 paintings during the entirety of his career, and sometimes painting two or three works in a day. His beautiful idealistic scenes were a favorite source of inspiration for contemporary engravers, and as many as 250 separate engravings were done of his paintings during his lifetime. His brother-in-law, William Ward, engraved a great number of his paintings reproducing in print his endearing paintings of English country life. Ward's engravings after Morland are some of the most beautiful prints of the period; they combine fine technical skill and inspired artistic imagination to create enduring images that speak of the taste and beauty of the age. Mezzotint colour-printed with added hand colour. In good condition apart from being trimmed to the edge of the plate mark. Lower margin has been expertly repaired with loss of imprint. Image size: 17 5/8 x 23 1/2 inches.

The record of a vigorous original thinker. The second issue point is the fact that the date is not present on the title and the printer is stated as Ostell.

        The Fisherman Going Out; The Fisherman's Return

      Published by Thomas Macklin, London 1793 - Stipple engraving. In good condition with the exception of both being laid down. (The Fisherman Going Out) with skillfully mended two inch tear just touching the image area. A fine pair of stipple engravings after Francis Wheatley a master of English genre painting. Wheatley was born and trained in London, and in 1769 was one of the first students admitted to the newly founded Royal Academy. Although he initially practiced as a landscape painter, by the mid 1770s he had become a popular painter of small-scale portraits and informal 'conversation-pieces'. From the 1780s onwards, Wheatley turned increasingly to sentimental domestic scenes that were perfectly attuned to the genteel sensibilities of the period. Today he is generally remembered for his Cries of London, which depicted street vendor such as milkmaids, and fruit sellers engaged in their trade on the street sides. This series was a great success, and inspired a myriad of different engravings and copies by celebrated artists such as Johan Zoffany and J. G. Huck. Wheatley's pretty genre paintings of rural and domestic life were a great source of inspiration for contemporary engravers who reproduced his work with industrious vigor. The popularity of these engravings greatly enhanced Wheatley's reputation, and made him one of the most celebrated painters of his day. Roberts F. Wheatley, R.A. His Life and Works p.46 (undated issue).

        A Complete Account of the Settlement at Port Jackson

      London, 1793. Quarto, folding map, early owner&#39;s name on title-page and some very scattered foxing, but less offset than usual; a fine copy in full tree calf gilt. Tench&#39;s second book. A most attractive copy of the first edition of one of the scarcest First Fleet accounts. The second of Tench&#39;s two books, this brings his account down to the end of the first four years of settlement in an &#39;accurate, well-written and acutely observed account of the earliest years of Australia&#39;s colonization&#39; (Wantrup). Tench had left New South Wales with the other marines on 18 December 1791 aboard HMS Gorgon which had accompanied the Third Fleet and this book was published in November or December 1793, more than a year after his return. Tench had explored the country around Sydney, discovered the Nepean River, and commenced the assault on the still impregnable Blue Mountains. Consequently, this book &#39;has a special place in a collection of the explorers. Where the other First Fleet journalists described the excursions and expeditions of others, Tench published selections from the actual journals kept on his own expeditions. He was the first Australian explorer to do so. Tench and his travelling companion, William Dawes, have been described as the first systematic explorers, which gives an added point to his being the first to print extracts from his &#39;Travelling Diaries in New South Wales&#39;. The interest of the 1793 volume is further enhanced by the fine folding engraved &#39;Map of the hitherto explored Country, Contiguous to Port Jackson: Laid down from Actual Survey&#39; which records the results of early exploration around the settled areas&#39; (Wantrup). This copy is bound without the list of subscribers.

        Dudley Castle. Le Chateau de Dudley

      R.Paddy and F.Jukes, Wolverhampton & London 1793 - Aquatint, printed in colours and finished by hand, by Francis Jukes, with engraved title and explanatory text beneath image in English and French on wove paper. A very fine pastoral scene and an excellent example of the picturesque, beautifully printed in colours and finished by hand The text beneath the image reads: "Dudley Castle is said to have been built by one Dodo, or Dudo, a Saxon, about the year 700; so that its present appellation of Dudley is a corruption of his name. This Castle stands on the summit of a Rockey [sic.] Hill, whose sides are beautifully wooded. It commands a most extensive prospect over five Counties, and into Part of Wales. It belongs to Lord Ward, whose Father was by King George the 3d. created Viscount Dudley and Ward of Dudley." The still-standing ruin was built in the 12th century. It is one of several aquatint views by Francis Jukes of medieval architecture in advanced decay greatly enjoyed by the new Romantic generation. The view shows the castle on a fine summer day. The picturesque ruin of the castle contrasts neatly with liveliness of the scene in the foreground. The hay has been cut and dried and is now being gathered in. The estate manager, or perhaps Viscount Dudley himself, has come, with two ladies, to see how the harvest is progressing. He sits astride his horse deep in conversation with an overseer, whilst one of the two ladies offers a tip to one of the workers. Behind them male and female workers toil in the sun trying to appear as busy as possible whilst still keeping an eye on the 'master'.

      Schnepfenthal, Verlag d. Erziehungsanstalt, 1793-1794.. . Äußerst seltene erste deutsche Ausgabe des Hauptwerks der Vorkämpferin und Begründerin der Frauenemanzipation, zugleich das erste, das nach den gutgemeinten moralischen Appellen der Herren Ebert, Paullini, Hippel und anderer mit auch heute noch modern anmutenden Denkansätzen das Thema behandelt. So bilden politische und gesellschaftliche Aspekte einen konstitutiven Bestandteil der Argumentation, und immer wieder argumentiert Mary Wollstonecraft in einer für ihre Zeit erstaunlich "soziologischen" Manier. Mary Wollstonecraft (1759-1797) hatte sich aus äußerst bedrückenden Verhältnissen als Autodidaktin entwickelt. Als Burkes 'Reflection on the Revolution in France' (November 1790) die Ideale der Französischen Revolution auf breiter Front angriff, war sie die erste, die schon vier Wochen später mit der anonymen Kampfschrift 'A Vindication of the Rights of Man, in a Letter to the Right Honourable Edmund Burke' antwortete. Als diese kleine Schrift, Vorbote ihres Hauptwerks, ein zweites Mal - und diesmal mit Nennung ihres Namens - gedruckt wurde, erschien zur gleichen Zeit und beim selben Verleger Paines 'Rights of Man'. Bewegt von den Grundgedanken der Französischen Revolution und gedanklich Paines Ideen aufgreifend und erweiternd, verfasste sie im Herbst 1791 in nur 6 Wochen das umfangreiche Manuskript zu 'A Vindication of the Rights of Woman' als die notwendige Ergänzung und Präzisierung zu Paines Werk. Im Januar 1792 gedruckt, wurde das Buch noch im gleichen Jahr ins Französische und kurz darauf von Salzmanns Schwiegersohn Weißenborn ins Deutsche übersetzt. Das schlicht und ohne Umschweife geschriebene Buch weckte den berühmten "Sturm der Entrüstung". "In Wahrheit war an der ganzen Sache nichts absonderlich Schockierendes. Mary griff weder die Einrichtung der Ehe noch die Ausübung der Religion an. Statt dessen trat sie für gleiche und gemeinsame Erziehung und Schulbildung beider Geschlechter und für staatliche Lenkung des Schulwesens ein. Es war ein vernünftiges Plädoyer für eine vernünftige Beziehung zwischen den Geschlechtern ... Die Hauptabsicht des Buches bestand darin, zu zeigen, daß die Frauen nicht das Spielzeug der Männer wären (oder eine andere 'Art von Kindern'), sondern ihre gleichberechtigten Partner sein sollten, was sie jedoch nur sein könnten, wenn sie auf gleiche Weise erzogen und gebildet würden" (Carter-Muir, Bücher die die Welt verändern, Nr 242) - und sie natürlich auch die gleichen Chancen dazu bekommen müssten. Mary Wollstonecraft schreibt: "Fürwahr, der gesunde Verstand, den ich unter ... Weibern, für welche die Erziehung nur sehr wenig thun konnte ... angetroffen habe, bestärkt mich fest in der Meynung, dass bloss unbedeutende Beschäftigungen das Weib zu einem unbedeutenden Wesen herabgesetzt haben. Die Männer nehmen ihren Körper, und ihren Geist läßt man verrosten! Die Folge davon muß immer diese seyn: so lange der Mann physische Liebe als seine angenehmste Erholung betrachtet, ... so lange wird er sich auch bemühen, das Weib in der Sklaverey zu halten - und wer sagt uns, wie viele Generationen dazu gehören, um den befreyten Abkömmlingen verworfener Sklaven für Tugend und Talente wieder Muth und Kraft zu geben?" (S. 278 ff). Und Salzmann fügt als Fußnote ein Zitat aus Knox' Versuchen hinzu: "Angenommen, die Weiber wären aus selbsteigener Wahl Sklavinnen - so ist Sklaverey, sie sey von welcher Art sie immer wolle, mit der Glückseligkeit und der Veredlung der Menschheit unverträglich". So ergänzt Wollstonecrafts Buch Paines 'Rights of Man' um wesentliche und darin "vergessene" Teile, geht darüber hinaus und war die eigentliche politische Schlussfolgerung aus der Erklärung der Menschen- und Bürgerrechte. Zugleich begründet es die Emanzipationsbewegung der Frauen. - Leicht gebräunt bzw. gering stockfleckig, am Schluss wenige Blatt stärker. Vorsatz mit altem Namenseintrag, Innenspiegel mit zeitgenöss. handschriftl. Bibliotheksvermerk. Gutes Exemplar. - Price/Price, Humaniora, S. 79. Carter/Muir, Bücher die die Welt verändern, 242.
