        Original watercolour of a fleet of ships among icebergs

      circa 1793-, 1797. Watercolour, oval shape, 132 x 195 mm.; slight crease on far right, else fine, tipped on to card, in gilt frame. By the artist of the providence. A finely executed watercolour of a fleet amidst icebergs. Although unsigned, this watercolour was originally found in a nineteenth century album with another of very similar style signed and dated by Tobin, an important amateur artist in the early history of Australia. Tobin was born in 1768 and joined the Navy as a lively lad in 1780. He showed natural aptitude and rose to the rank of lieutenant after an extended voyage for the East India Company between 1788-1790. He served with Flinders under Bligh on the Providence, the second voyage to Tahiti to gather breadfruit following the disastrous Bounty mutiny. Tobin was a highly skilled watercolourist who kept a detailed record of the Providence voyage including paintings of Tasmanian scenes. On his return to England he served under Cochrane on the Thetis between 1793-1797 and continued to produce marine scenes in a more mature and conservative style than the watercolours undertaken in the Pacific. The Mitchell Library holds an important album of watercolours dating from his service on the Thetis. This study of ships amidst icebergs is strongly reminiscent of the marine studies in this album, characterised by the highly detailed treatment of rigging and naval architecture, accomplished treatment of sea, clouds and sky and the use of subdued and harmonious colouring. George Tobin was one of the most important and accomplished amateur artists in the early history of Australia and the opening of the Pacific: 'His colouring was very good - bold and strong and sure. He had an accurate eye for perspective, a sensitive feeling for distance and for the movement of wind and water, and his general composition was almost always excellent' (Rex and Thea Rienits, Early Artists of Australia).

        A Treatise on the Plague and Yellow Fever?

      8vo contemporary sheep rebacked with cloth, folding table, 568 pp. Binding is worn with chipping at the extremities. Hinges have been reinforced but are still a little weak. Browning and aging to contents, paper is somewhat fragile, and folding table has some tears at the folds, signature on title; still a very respectable copy. Tytler provides a very detailed historical account of the ?great plague?, but more importantly, he discusses the two major infectious disease outbreaks in the United States in 1793 and 1798. His folding table compares the symptoms of the plague and the yellow fever epidemics. This copy is signed by noted surgeon John B. Hamilton (1847-1898) who as the surgeon-general of the Marine Hospital Service helped stop a yellow fever outbreak in 1878 by enforcing a strict quarantine. Sabin 97656. Austin 1940.

        Resa genom Kamtchatka och Sibirien ar 1787 och 1788

      Upsala: Joh. Edmans Enka, 1793. Small octavo; an excellent copy in contemporary Swedish half calf, gilt. The Swedish edition. First Swedish edition: rare. A translation and abridgement of the 1790 Paris publication of de Lesseps' account of his epic journey across Russia, carrying with him a substantial portion of the records of the La Pérouse voyage. De Lesseps, the young son of the French Consul-General at St. Petersburg, and himself Russian interpreter on the voyage, left the expedition at Kamchatka with charts, views, and La Pérouse's journal from Macao to Kamchatka, to travel overland to France. He thus became the only survivor of the ill-fated expedition. In 1829, he was called on to identify the relics brought back to France by Peter Dillon. Ferguson knew only the Kroepelien copy, for which he mistakenly gives the date of publication of 1792.

        Billiardiera scandens

      London: Sowerby, 1793. Handcoloured engraving measuring 235 x 147mm., fine and framed. A 'most copious and finely preserved collection'. Attractive coloured engraving from the first illustrated book on Australian flowers - A Specimen of the Botany of New Holland, prepared for the press by John Edward Smith and illustrated by James Sowerby. This native wild flower is commonly called the 'climbing apple-berry' and bears fruit edible to both birds and people (likened in flavour to stewed apples or kiwifruit). In 1898 the botanist Joseph Maiden wrote that children of the Port Jackson area, where it is commonly found, had been eating the berries since the foundation of the settlement in 1788. Named in honour of the French naturalist James la Billardiere who accompanied the d'Entrecasteaux expedition, this attractive plant was engraved by pre-eminent English natural history illustrator James Sowerby, who through a lifetime of inexhaustible activity 'had a considerable influence on the development of natural history' (DNB). Published to much acclaim in 1793 A Specimen of the Botany of New Holland contains the first illustrations of several Australian species. Sowerby prepared the plates from materials collected in the field by John White, Surgeon-General to the fledgling colony and a keen amateur naturalist. White returned to England with both sketches made in the field and a 'most copious and finely preserved collection of dried specimens' from New South Wales.

        La Constitution de la Lune, rêve politique et moral

      Paris: chez Froulle, 1793. Octavo, lightly browned, a good uncut copy; in later quarter red morocco with marbled boards. A liberal society on the moon. First of two editions published in 1793. It is of notable rarity, with only five copies of both editions listed in NUC. This work describes the wonderfully liberal state of lunar society, a politically direct and utopian response to the savagery of the Jacobin Terror, which was then at its height. Its association with the events in France is made explicit with its declarative opening, in which the Consul General of the Moon announces: 'Toute espèce d'intolérance en matière d'opinions, soit politiques, soit religieuses, est déclarée attentatoire à la liberté; et sera punie, de la peine portée par la loi contre les conspirateurs, qui ne tendent qu'a bouleverser l'état, en divisant les citoyens'. Certainly the authorities could not mistake the work's tone: seeing it as dangerously politically motivated, they imprisoned its author for a brief period.

        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: taken on the spot, by Captain Watkin Tench, of the Marines

      Nicol and Sewell, London 1793 - Quarto, with a folding map; an excellent copy, completely uncut in the original blue-grey boards; the paper on the boards torn and wearing; contemporary simple canvas spine with hand-lettered label; unsophisticated and preserved in a 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.

        Relacion del último viage al Estrecho de Magallanes de la fragata de S.M. Santa María de la Cabeza en los años de 1785 y 1786? [and] Apéndice a la Relacion?

      Ibarra, 1788-, Madrid 1793 - Quarto, two volumes bound together, with an engraved portrait of Magellan as frontispiece, five fine large folding maps and five folding tables; contemporary calf-backed marbled boards, some wear but a very good copy. Patagonia and the straits of Magellan. The complete first edition in two volumes. This is the best description of Patagonia and the Straits of Magellan, then as now an area of strategic and navigational significance. Vargas y Ponce's book gives the official account of the two expeditions made by Antonio de Córdoba to 'ascertain the advisability of Spaniards continuing to use the Strait in voyages - the results indicated the negative. After these expeditions the Spanish trade routes were exclusively to east coast ports and then overland to the Pacific ports?' (Hill). As part of this, the Relacion provides a general history of earlier voyages of discovery to the Strait. The large folding maps, fine and detailed, are all based on observations made during the Córdoba voyages. Córdoba's exploration of the Strait of Magellan is accompanied by Vargas y Ponce's summary of the early explorations of the area, mainly from an examination of original manuscripts in the Spanish archives. He discusses various means of navigating the Strait, with detailed sailing instructions, and describes the climate, indigenous peoples and natural history of the region.

He was an experienced and scientific navigator. With his encouragement, the exploration of the coastline of Australia made rapid progress, and the early discoveries of Flinders and Bass owe much to him. His journal is a very valuable work on the early history of English settlement in Australia (Hill). It seems that several copies were issued with the imprint cropped, losing the date "In many cases the binder has accidentally shaved the date from the foot of the rather too long title - page.....This imperfection is of such frequent occurrence, howerver, that collectors have tended to be more tolerant of it in this book than they would be in another" Wantrup, Australian Rare Books 1788 - 1900, page 70; Ferguson, Bibliography of Australia, Volume I, page 60, No.152; Hill, Pacific Voyages, Volume I, page 151.

        Opera , cum variis lectionibus, notis variorum, et indice locupletissimo

      Payne and Edwards, 1792-, London 1793 - Two volumes, quarto, with a portrait frontispiece; spine of one volume slightly chipped, joints a little split but quite firm, nonetheless a splendid set in contemporary tree calf, flat spines with gilt panelling, red and green morocco labels. The London Horace. Fine and scholarly printing of Horace: 'a very magnificent and valuable edition; the text of which is formed chiefly on that of Gesner' (Moss, Manual of Classical Bibliography). A contemporary evaluation in the Critical Review of 1796 applauds the quality of this edition: 'With regard to the typographical merits of the present work, they must be acknowledged to be great. It is printed on fine wove paper; the type is excellent, and the press-work is extremely clear and neat. The margin is also spacious, and the arrangement such as does the printers much credit.' One of the most beloved Roman poets, Horace is cherished for his elegant poetry and robust satire, combining humorous self-reflection with philosophy: 'His style is rather to tell the truth through laughter, and not only to show others the way but also to work at improving himself and making himself more acceptable to his fellow human beings (Oxford Classical Dictionary). Aside from the quality of its printing and composition, the London Horace of 1792-1793 is noted for its exhaustive commentaries. Accordingly, this 'variorum' edition compares and publishes known textual variations (in collating the known texts of Horace the editor consulted the first printed edition of 1470 alongside seven manuscript copies held in the Harleian Collection).

        Versuch einer Erdbeschreibung der sechs Welttheile?

      Johann Gottlob Heinrich Richter, Leipzig 1793 - Small thick octavo, eight folding maps with original outline hand-colouring, early bookplate, mark on title-page and small library stamp on verso (Hälle); a very good copy, original half calf over marbled boards, spine banded and gilt, red label chipped with come loss. The "Six Parts" of the World with interesting maps. Very uncommon: the author's copy of the 1793 first edition of this study of the "six parts of the world." Georg August von Breitenbauch (1731-1817) studied at Jena at mid-century, before travelling to France and Berlin, where he associated with Lessing. Following the death of his parents he returned to their estate in 1757, but continued to write, developing an interest in Asia, the East generally, and Africa. This study is an attempt to delineate the geography but also the peoples of the world, and to show the ways in which the different races and peoples developed and were connected. The maps are of great interest. The first was engraved by J.C. Müller after an original by Breitenbauch, and given the stylistic similarities it is certain that the rest of the maps were prepared in the same way, despite the fact that none of them is signed. The first six show the main parts of the world, being Europe, Asia, Africa, North America, South America, and the sixth showing the region here called "South Indian", depicting both the Indian and Pacific Oceans with New Holland in the centre. On this map the west coast of Australia is shown as having been discovered in 1616, the east in 1770, while Botany Bay and Port Jackson are both prominent, the latter marked "founded 1788." Kerguelen Island is marked, and all of the smaller Pacific islands have the dates of their European discovery, including Hawaii and Tahiti. Another interesting addition to this map is the species line between Asia and "South-India" as characterised by Djurberg in his 1780 attempt to delineate the physical limits of Polynesia. The last two maps are, firstly, a world map showing the distribution of people (illustrated here; Australia is simply marked "Ulimaroer"), and secondly, another world map showing the distribution of the various "Farben der Volker" ("colours of the people"). This is the Breitenbauch family's own copy of this work: the legend on the armorial bookplate reads "Zur Breitenbauchschen Bibliotheck", surmounted by the family coat-of-arms. The work was reprinted in Lemgo in 1794: both editions are very scarce. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

He studied medicine at Edinburgh University, where he became the favourite pupil of William Cullen, and graduated M.D. on 12 Sept. 1775. After spending some time on the continent he began to practise at Papcastle in his native county, but shortly afterwards moved to Denbigh. In 1782 he came to London, became physician to the Middlesex dispensary, and was admitted a licentiate of the College of Physicians on 9 Aug. 1784. On 17 March 1791 he was elected physician to the smallpox and inoculation hospitals at St. Pancras, in succession to Edward Archer.Woodville, who was elected a fellow of the Linnean Society in 1791, had a strong taste for botany, and appropriated two acres of ground at King's Cross belonging to the hospital as a botanical garden, which he maintained at his own expense. Here he wrote the present work on medical botany. He also took an interest in smallpox and wrote several books about it.Woodville, who was a member of the Society of Friends, had his residence in Ely Place, Holborn, but died at the smallpox hospital on 26 March 1805, and was buried in the Friends' burial-ground, Bunhill Fields, on 4 April. His portrait, by Lemuel Abbott, was presented to the smallpox hospital. It was engraved by William Bond.

BELLE ÉDITION EN LANGUE ITALIENNE, revue et corrigée par l'auteur. Elle est composée de DOUZE CONTES GALANTS dans le genre de Boccace. Selon Feller, elles sont «presque toutes extrêmement licencieuses et souvent la religion n'y est pas plus respectée que les moeurs». UN DES RARES EXEMPLAIRES IMPRIMÉS SUR GRAND PAPIER VÉLIN. Giambattista CASTI (1721-1803) quitta l'Italie pour Vienne où il fut appelé par son ami le Duc de Rosenberg, gouverneur du grand-duc et futur empereur Joseph II d'Autriche. Devenu poète de l'empereur, il visita les cours de Russie et de Prusse, où il pu faire la connaissance de l'impératrice Catherine II, et dont il rapporta les débauches dans son "Poème tartare". Selon Apollinaire, Casti est un «conteur plein de fraîcheur et de sensualité, sa qualité d'ecclésiastique donnant plus de piquant au libertinage aimable de ses contes.» L?oeuvre de Casti avait séduit CASANOVA qui l'évoque dans ses "Mémoires": «l'abbé Casti, que j'avais envie de connaître, à cause de certains petits poèmes fort impies dont il était l'auteur[?] ». Les poèmes impies dont parle Casanova sont ces nouvelles qui commençaient à être connues, et particulièrement la "Papesse Jeanne". «Les "Nouvelles" de Casti ne sont jamais obscènes et leur licence ne dépasse point celle des "Nouvelles" de La Fontaine ou de "La Pucelle". L?abbé Casti était un voltairien, et ses vers, assaisonnés d'esprit gaulois et de finesse italienne, s?ils ont un peu de la morbidesse de ceux de Métastase, ont aussi beaucoup de la netteté malicieuse de ceux du philosophe de Ferney. » (Apollinaire). SUPERBE EXEMPLAIRE EN MAROQUIN décoré de l?époque. (Apollinaire, "L?Oeuvre libertine des conteurs italiens", pp. 1 à 7 et p. 12 ? Brunet, I, 1628, «Ce volume, qui ne contient qu'une partie des "Nouvelles" de Casti, n'a de valeur qu'autant qu'il est imprimé sur vélin» ? Feller, "Biographie universelle", T. III, p. 224).

Report of the trial held in Great Britain while Paine was in self-exile in France. The accusation was that Paine; " wishing and intending mischief, did, on the 16th of Februrary, 1791, wickedly, falsely, maliciously, scandalously, and seditiously publish a certain book, called Second Part of Rights of Man, signed Thomas Paine, containing many false, wicked, scandalous, malicious and seditious assertions". --- The prosecution did not even have to rebut Mr. Erskine's arguments; the jury informed the judge they had already decided Paine was guilty. The French response to the trial was to make a national hero of Paine and to elevate him to the status of a government official.

        A Narrative of Transactions Relative to a Sermon Preached in the Parish Church of Brighton, August 18 , 1793 : With Some Short Extracts from the Sermon and Occasional Remarks

      C Dilly, in the Poultry, London 1793 - HB. Dr. Knox, scholar and divine, a Christian and asserter of civil and religious liberty, had the temerity to deliver a sermon recommending peace shortly after the French Revolution and on the cusp of the Napoleonic wars. This upset some people and led to him being grossly insulted by various coxcombs in military uniforms whilst he was at the theatre forcing him to leave. He soon after published a narrative of these events causing a public sensation. The book also contains an appendix composed of letters received in response to the furore. An excerpt from an obituary is attached to the back of the frontis. Between the frontis and the title page is a note written and signed by Dr Knox that is dated Nov. 1810, from Tunbridge, to the printer of the next edition asking him to correct certain punctuation and spelling errors that are in the current edition that will be conveyed by his son. Before the half-title, tipped-in, is an engraving of Brighthelmstone (and the church) by J Walker from a drawing by J Nixon, publ. by J Walker in 1802. The frontis. is of Dr Knox and there is another, smaller, picture of him placed loose. Second Edition, corrected.
