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.

        Raccolta di sessanta piu belle vestiture che si costumano nelle provincie del regno di Napoli.

      Naples Vincenzo Talani 1793 - Folio (39 x 26.5 cm), 2 parts in 1 volume, engraved general title, 60 engraved plates by Bianchi after Alessandro D'Anna, occasional light soiling, modern period style red morocco richly gilt, marbled edges. Fine, fresh example of the first edition of this depiction of the costumes of Naples. Of great rarity: no copy found on COPAC; OCLC lists New York Public Library and Bibliotheque Nationale only. These were produced at a time when this subject was of considerable interest. The king of Naples, Ferdinand IV, at the instigation of the Marquis Domenico Venuti, had commissioned various artists to produce watercolours of native subjects for the royal factory of Capodimonte porcelain, probably in order to raise the profile of the kingdom. There was a competition to choose artists, won by Xavier Della Gatta and Alessandro D'Anna. Della Gatta and D'Anna then travelled through the kingdom, often over rugged and dangerous terrain, making drawings of the finest subjects. What happened to the original drawings is not known, but the publishers Talani and Gervasi must have had them at some point and used them to produce the present work. Most of the engravings are of women. All the subjects are set against fully landscaped backgrounds making this a particularly attractive and evocative work. Brunet IV 1075; Colas 2468; Vinet 2303.

      1793 - Londres et Paris, Molini, 1793. In-8 (135 X 209) maroquin rouge, plats ornés d?un encadrement de chaînette dorée, dos lisse, chainette et filets gras en place des nerfs, compartiments ornés d?un losange de filet perlé, fers d'angle et fleuron central, chainette en queue, pièce de titre maroquin vert lierre, coupes et coiffes filetées, chasses ornées, tranches dorées (reliure de l?époque); (2) ff. de faux-titre et titre, 306 pages, (1) f. de table et errata. 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).

Taken in short-hand by E. Hodgson

      J. S. Jordan. London. 1793. J. S. Jordan. London. 1793. SECOND EDITION, CORRECTED. Small 4o.(9 x 5.7 inches). 3-143pp. Lacking the half title.

A tall untrimmed copy in publishers original blue paper covered boards. New grey paper spine to match with paper label printed in black. 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.

      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. Rebound recently, full-leather incorporating original boards with new brown gilt banded spine bearing a simple inter-band gilt floral pattern, and the gilt title "Knox's Narrative". Marbled eps. On the f.fep obverse and facing are various notes and inscr.:- ex-owners'names and a gift inscr. and a pencil note "The Revd J J Cotton was educated by the Revd John Mossop of the Grammar School, Brighthelmstone and afterwards became a member of Wadham Coll.

He also witnessed the treatment Dr Knox received at the theatre." Prologue of xlii and then the Narrative of 140 pages (paginated). Quire marks at bottom of pages. Between the prologue and the narrative is a slipped in coloured plate of "St. Nicholas's Church Brighton", "drawn & engraved by R Havell" , "publ. Sept.1829 by R Havell", "Pl.Vll" , "Proof".
