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.

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).

        Beschreibungen und Abbildungen hartschaaligter Insecten Coleoptera Linn. Aus dem Original getreu uebersetzt mit der in selbigem fehlenden Synonymie und bestaendigen Commentar versehen von D. Georg Wolfgang Franz Panzer.

      1793. Erlangen, J.J. Palm, 1793-1802. 5 volumes, bound in one. 4to (257 x 207mm). pp. xii, 103; (8), 134; (10), 68; (16), 120; (8), 114, (4) with 4 charming handcoloured engraved frontispieces and 108 handcoloured engraved plates. Contemporary full calf, richly gilt ornamented spine in 5 compartments, sides with gilt border fillet and blind centre-piece within a richly gilt ornamented border (back cover hinges a bit cracked but very firm). The final and most complete German edition of the Dutch original. The first German edition (1785-1791) did not comprise volume V, entitled: 'Beyträge zur Geschichte der Insecten' (containing 12 plates). The present German edition has 4 beautiful engraved handcoloured frontispieces which are not found in the Dutch edition. As always some minor foxing to the text as this was printed on different paper than the plates. The first major iconography on Coleoptera and one of the finest entomological works published in the German language. Johannes Eusebius Voet (1706-1778) was a physician at Dordrecht. He possessed a large cabinet of insects and shells and was the son of Carl Voet, who was court-painter to the Earl of Portland. The Dutch Entomological Society has a splendid album on insects and their metamorphosis by Carl Voet, following closely Goedaert. According to Landwehr, Johannes Eusebius Voet was as well the author as the artist of the 'Catalogus Systematicus Coleopterorum'. Most of the splendid plates are engraved by C.F.C. Kleeman, Roesel's son-in-law, in the same elaborate manner and preciseness of detail that we know from his other works. Nissen ZBI, 4259; Horn & Schenkling 16730..

[4], viii, 508 pp. First edition of the first published work by Crombie, a Scottish-born Presbyterian minister, schoolmaster, and philosopher.

Evidence of readership: This copy has extensive pencilled shouldernotes left by an unknown reader who thoroughly (and neatly) recorded numerous questions about and responses to the first 39 pages of the text — after which our reader is heard from no more.

        An Essay on the Natural Equality of Men; or the Rights That Result from It, and on the Duties Which It Imposes: To which a Silver Medal was adjudged by the Teylerian Society at Haarlem, April, 1792?

      Edinburgh:: Printed for T. Duncan; and T. Cadell, , 1793. Edinburgh: Printed for T. Duncan; and T. Cadell, 1793 First edition. Contemporary calf, rebacked to style, burgundy morocco spine label. . Octavo. Corners worn. Generally a very good copy. Inscribed on the leaf preceding the half-title: "Wm. Lauce. Simpson/in memory of his/great grandfather/Aberdn. July 9th/1875." Simpson was the great grandson of the author. Brown was born in 1755 in Utrecht, Holland. He studied at St. Andrews University as well as the University of Utrecht. In 1788, he became Professor of Moral Philosophy at Utrecht. In 1795, he left Holland and succeeded George Campbell as Professor of Divinity at the University of Aberdeen. Shortly afterwards, he became its principal. The present work, which was also published in Dutch in the Proceedings of the Tyler Society (1793), is considered his most important. Though the title-page uses the phrase, "Corrected and Enlarged," this is probably the first edition of the work to be printed, and the phrase probably alludes to the work's origins as an essay. "Brown starts with the premise that mankind was created for society and adapts the analogy of the Great Chain of Being to country for people's stations in life...This leads him into a quite radical exploration of the effect of power on the different classes, and he vigorously argues for a kind of autonomous individuality within a democracy, where 'Every man has a perfect right to liberty, or to act in whatever manner he pleases, provided he offers no injury to others, and violates no law enacted by the public authority of the civil society to which he belongs.' ...He is often ambivalent, if not inconsistent, about what he means by'natural,' but he contends that obligations fall equally on all, that there are 'benefits received and returned,' and that no matter what one's rank in society, one is obliged to ensure that one's work and endeavours promote the common good..." (J.V. Price in Dictionary of Eighteenth-Century British Philosophers).

        Ledger of the Dutch Church of Cortland Town, listing Two of Major André's captors & Catrina Van Tassel, the love interest of "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow"

      1793 - 1836 1793 - A unique record book from the Revolutionary period which includes the names of Isaac Van Wart and John Paulding, two of the three militiamen who in 1780, earned fame as the capturers of the British spy Major André, discovering the letters of Benedict Arnold's treasonous plan to surrender West Point to the British hidden in his boot. Titled "A Record Book of the Dutch Church of Cortland Town Anno Domini 1793"; its members originally worshipped at the old Dutch Church at Sleepy Hollow (Philip's Burgh) which was immortalized in Washington Irving's classic 'The Legend of Sleepy Hollow'. In that tale, Ichabod Crane courted Katrina Van Tassel; there are many Van Tassels recorded in this ledger, including a "Catrina Van Tassel wife of Henry Tise" who was "taken in as member" in 1796.The early Dutch settlers of Verplank's Point had joined the congregation at Sleepy Hollow because they had no church of their own; in 1729 or 1730 they built such a church at Montrose Point. It burned down prior to 1792 and this record book begins with collections dated 1793 as the elders of the church were gathering money to rebuild. The founding elders of the church are Hercules Lent, Peter Goetschius, Abram Lent, William Lent, Albart Lent, Benjeman Dyckman (sic), Jacobus Kronkheyt, Jacob Lent and Henry Lent. Local contributors include William Dyckman, Martin Post, John Lent, John Ramsey, States Dyckman (sic), Abram Merrit, John Barret, Jacob Chatterton, other families including Henry Tise, Underwood, Montross (sic), Giffords, Brown, Clark, Reynolds, McCoord, Odell, Taller, Baysley, Brown, Lamb, Familiar (Vermilliar?), Conklin, Taylor, Cutler, Bakman, Van Wert, Storms, Acker, Jones, Morgan, Duglas, Haight, Travors, Birdchall, Oppy, Hause, Purdy, Mandival (Mandeville), Verplank and Clinedenny.Donations were collected from members of their old congregation at Philip's Burgh (Sleepy Hollow)- the list of contributors reads like a who's who of Westchester New York patriots and includes: Nicholas Storms (Revolutionary War soldier), Cornelius Lamberts (Revolutionary War soldier, 1758 - 1826), Gersham Sherwood (Revolutionary War soldier, 1735 - 1805), Benjamin Brown, Abram Brown, Cornelius Jones (Revolutionary War soldier, 1740 -1823), Isaac Requa (Revolutionary War soldier, 1758 - 1826), John Delaney, Mordecai Hail, John Davis, John Paulding (captor of Major André), James Hammon, Nicholas Storms (Revolutionary War soldier), Rachel Van Wart, Isaac Van Wart (captor of Major André) Jacob Bruckhout (Revolutionary War soldier), John Townley, Gabriel Requa (Revolutionary War soldier). Other prominent early settlers & Revolutionary War names and donors in the ledger include: Hercules Lent (early Peekskill landowner; 28 Lent family members served in the Revolution); Abram Lent, William Lent, and Albart Lent, Peter Goetschius (physician & eventual owner of a property in Croton on Hudson confiscated from a Tory); Benjamin Dyckman, Deacon (Revolutionary War hero), Jacobus Kronkheyt, Van Tassel, Montross (sic), Odell, Lamb, Conklin, Verplank, Buckhout, Livingston, Rutgers, Garrison, Lefferts, Houseman, Lansing, Cortland, Dubois and many more. Other donations were collected from "Governor Jay at New York" (contributing 3 pounds 4 shillings) and "Governor Clinton at New York" (2 pounds), as well as from the notorious Loyalist, States Morris Dyckman, the original owner of the outstanding Federal style mansion 'Boscobel', first built in Montrose, and later moved to Garrison, NY. States (or "Staats") Dyckman profited during the Revolution working in the offices of the British Army's Quartermaster General. He moved to England for a while, returning to his New York farm in 1795 when things had settled down, and making his donation to the rebuilding of this Dutch Church. States gave 8 pounds and his wife "Eliza" 2 pounds.The first part, recording donations collected, (p. 1 - 42); 43- 45pp of building expenses; Collection for the church stove (p46-47); p. 47- 50pp salaries paid in [Attributes: Hard Cover]

A unique record book from the Revolutionary period which includes the names of Isaac Van Wart and John Paulding, two of the three militiamen who in 1780, earned fame as the capturers of the British spy Major André, discovering the letters of Benedict Arnold's treasonous plan to surrender West Point to the British hidden in his boot. Titled "A Record Book of the Dutch Church of Cortland Town Anno Domini 1793"; its members originally worshipped at the old Dutch Church at Sleepy Hollow (Philip's Burgh) which was immortalized in Washington Irving's classic 'The Legend of Sleepy Hollow'. In that tale, Ichabod Crane courted Katrina Van Tassel; there are many Van Tassels recorded in this ledger, including a "Catrina Van Tassel wife of Henry Tise" who was "taken in as member" in 1796.& & The early Dutch settlers of Verplank's Point had joined the congregation at Sleepy Hollow because they had no church of their own; in 1729 or 1730 they built such a church at Montrose Point. It burned down prior to 1792 and this record book begins with collections dated 1793 as the elders of the church were gathering money to rebuild. The founding elders of the church are Hercules Lent, Peter Goetschius, Abram Lent, William Lent, Albart Lent, Benjeman Dyckman (sic), Jacobus Kronkheyt, Jacob Lent and Henry Lent. Local contributors include William Dyckman, Martin Post, John Lent, John Ramsey, States Dyckman (sic), Abram Merrit, John Barret, Jacob Chatterton, other families including Henry Tise, Underwood, Montross (sic), Giffords, Brown, Clark, Reynolds, McCoord, Odell, Taller, Baysley, Brown, Lamb, Familiar (Vermilliar?), Conklin, Taylor, Cutler, Bakman, Van Wert, Storms, Acker, Jones, Morgan, Duglas, Haight, Travors, Birdchall, Oppy, Hause, Purdy, Mandival (Mandeville), Verplank and Clinedenny.& & Donations were collected from members of their old congregation at Philip's Burgh (Sleepy Hollow)- the list of contributors reads like a who's who of Westchester New York patriots and includes: Nicholas Storms (Revolutionary War soldier), Cornelius Lamberts (Revolutionary War soldier, 1758 - 1826), Gersham Sherwood (Revolutionary War soldier, 1735 - 1805), Benjamin Brown, Abram Brown, Cornelius Jones (Revolutionary War soldier, 1740 -1823), Isaac Requa (Revolutionary War soldier, 1758 - 1826), John Delaney, Mordecai Hail, John Davis, John Paulding (captor of Major André), James Hammon, Nicholas Storms (Revolutionary War soldier), Rachel Van Wart, Isaac Van Wart (captor of Major André) Jacob Bruckhout (Revolutionary War soldier), John Townley, Gabriel Requa (Revolutionary War soldier). & & Other prominent early settlers & Revolutionary War names and donors in the ledger include: Hercules Lent (early Peekskill landowner; 28 Lent family members served in the Revolution); Abram Lent, William Lent, and Albart Lent, Peter Goetschius (physician & eventual owner of a property in Croton on Hudson confiscated from a Tory); Benjamin Dyckman, Deacon (Revolutionary War hero), Jacobus Kronkheyt, Van Tassel, Montross (sic), Odell, Lamb, Conklin, Verplank, Buckhout, Livingston, Rutgers, Garrison, Lefferts, Houseman, Lansing, Cortland, Dubois and many more. Other donations were collected from "Governor Jay at New York" (contributing 3 pounds 4 shillings) and "Governor Clinton at New York" (2 pounds), as well as from the notorious Loyalist, States Morris Dyckman, the original owner of the outstanding Federal style mansion 'Boscobel', first built in Montrose, and later moved to Garrison, NY. States (or "Staats") Dyckman profited during the Revolution working in the offices of the British Army's Quartermaster General. He moved to England for a while, returning to his New York farm in 1795 when things had settled down, and making his donation to the rebuilding of this Dutch Church. States gave 8 pounds and his wife "Eliza" 2 pounds.& & The first part, recording donations collected, (p. 1 - 42); 43- 45pp of building expenses; Collection for the church stove (p46-47); p. 47- 50pp salaries paid in 1836; is followed by 22 blank pages; then records of new members dated from 1796 through 1811. The last section (33pp) of the ledger consists primarily of records of Consistory meetings, records of the addition of new members, agreements and indentures dating from 1797 to 1831. One of the entries of the third section is an indenture dated October 31, 1800 between Philip van Cortland and the trustees of the Reformed Dutch Church in which Van Cortland (son of Pierre Van Cortland) grants the church an undivided right to "Parsons or Montross (sic) Point". There is also a Consistory record of a section of the burying ground designated for "the black people which belong to the congregation". Loosely inserted is a laminated document of the family record of the Wessells family or New York.& & On another page in the ledger is a record of money given to the church by Pierre Van Cortland. In 1796, he gave the church a sum of money with interest for 10 years provided church pay certain amounts to two widows, probably Revolutionary war widows (page 15). Pierre Van Cortland was born in New York (1721 – 1814) and was the first Lieutenant Governor of the State of New York. Pierre was a descendant of a distinguished Dutch family of New Amsterdam and established a manor in Croton on Hudson NY. Pierre was a patriot; he presided over the 1777 convention which drafted the first New York state constitution and served as acting governor of the state for George Clinton during the Revolution.& & Money to build the new church was collected from a wide area in and around New York, including: Philip's Burg, New York - [Gabriel Furman, John H.

Unfortunately the 1795 church building for which money was collected in the ledger was demolished in 1970. The present building was completed and prepared for worship on March 28, 1971, using the original bell and the chancel cross from the 1795 church. & & Quarter calf and marbled boards, marbled boards a bit rubbed, a split at front board, but holding.& & A unique record of members of an early New York Dutch church with the names of some of the outstanding Revolutionary War figures of the time.& & [Ref: NY Times, "In Sleepy Hollow Cemetery", October 14, 1894]

        An Essay on the Natural Equality of Men; or the Rights That Result from It, and on the Duties Which It Imposes: To which a Silver Medal was adjudged by the Teylerian Society at Haarlem, April, 1792…

      Edinburgh: Printed for T. Duncan; and T. Cadell, 1793 First edition. Contemporary calf, rebacked to style, burgundy morocco spine label. . Octavo. Corners worn. Generally a very good copy. Inscribed on the leaf preceding the half-title: "Wm. Lauce. Simpson/in memory of his/great grandfather/Aberdn. July 9th/1875." Simpson was the great grandson of the author. Brown was born in 1755 in Utrecht, Holland. He studied at St. Andrews University as well as the University of Utrecht. In 1788, he became Professor of Moral Philosophy at Utrecht. In 1795, he left Holland and succeeded George Campbell as Professor of Divinity at the University of Aberdeen. Shortly afterwards, he became its principal. The present work, which was also published in Dutch in the Proceedings of the Tyler Society (1793), is considered his most important. Though the title-page uses the phrase, "Corrected and Enlarged," this is probably the first edition of the work to be printed, and the phrase probably alludes to the work's origins as an essay. "Brown starts with the premise that mankind was created for society and adapts the analogy of the Great Chain of Being to country for people's stations in life…This leads him into a quite radical exploration of the effect of power on the different classes, and he vigorously argues for a kind of autonomous individuality within a democracy, where 'Every man has a perfect right to liberty, or to act in whatever manner he pleases, provided he offers no injury to others, and violates no law enacted by the public authority of the civil society to which he belongs.' …He is often ambivalent, if not inconsistent, about what he means by'natural,' but he contends that obligations fall equally on all, that there are 'benefits received and returned,' and that no matter what one's rank in society, one is obliged to ensure that one's work and endeavours promote the common good…" (J.V. Price in Dictionary of Eighteenth-Century British Philosophers).

        Plan of the Siege of York Town in Virginia

      London, 1793. Map. Uncolored engraving. Image measures 10.75" x 12.75". This battle plan of the Siege at Yorktown is an important contemporary representation of an important historical moment in the American Revolution. This second issue of the map, originally published in Banastre Tarleton's "A History of the Campaigns of 1780 & 1781" is from a re-engraving made for Stedman's 1793 "History of the American War." The battle involved a surprise attack by the French and the Americans on Cornwallis's troops statined in the Lower Chesapeake. The map has troop and forts labeled as French, British, and American according to a key in the lower left corner. The map also has a number of features of the siege itself, such as sunken vessels, notes on the lines of attach, and the positions of general including Lincoln, Lafayette, Washington and Rochambeau. Forts, positions, roads and topographical details are given. The map is in very good condition with a narrow left margin. Some stains and foxing. Philadelphia-born military historian Charles Stedman was a Loyalist who served under General Cornwallis. After escaping American capture, he published his authoritative two-volume history of the war, which is seen today as the best contemporary account of the Revolution from the British side. This map is a fine example of his work.

        Mémoires secrets et curieux des Cours, des gouvernements et des moeurs des principaux états d'Italie.

      Buisson,, Paris, 1793 - Tre volumi di cm. 19,5, pp. (4) viii, 495 (1); (4) 478; (4) 480. Solida ed elegante legatura coeva in piena pelle, dorsi a nervi con titoli in oro. Dentelles interne, sguardie marmorizzate e tagli dorati. Bell’esemplare, in eccellente stato di conservazione. Alcune delel preliminari del primo volume sono legate nel terzo. Edizione originale, rara di un’opera di grande interesse storico ed economico. A testimonianza, le ristampe dell'anno successivo a Londra e a Francoforte in traduzione tedesca. D'Ancona: p. 60: "Il I vol. riguarda il regno di Napoli, il II Roma e lo Stato della Chiesa, il III Lucca, la Toscana, o per dir meglio Livorno, e poi Modena (ca. 120 pp.), Parma, Genova, la Corsica (30 pp.) e il Principato di Monaco. L'opera del Conte, poi cittadino Gorani milanese (Milano, 1740 - Ginevra, 1819), è di molta importanza, e meriterebbe di essere rimessa in onore, corredandola di opportune illustrazioni. Ci possono essere degli sbagli e dei giudizi men retti, dovuti alle opinioni giacobine dell'A., ma il fondo è veridico, e le notizie abbondanti e svariate.". L'A. ebbe una vita avventurosa e ricca di incontri proficui e importanti: formatosi nella Milano dei Verri e dei Beccaria, combatté contro i Prussiani, da cui fu fatto prigioniero. In Germania ebbe modo di seguire delle lezioni di Kant e di apprezzare la figura di sovrano illuminato di Federico II. Dopo il ritorno in patria, intraprese un lungo viaggio che lo portò in giro per l'Italia, la Corsica, la Sardegna e poi l'oriente: Grecia, Impero turco e paesi balcanici. Fu poi in Spagna, Portogallo e infine Vienna, dove divenne funzionario di Maria Teresa, finché egli non espresse con troppa franchezza all'imperatrice la sua avversione nei confronti di Firmian e di Kaunitz. Dopo un breve viaggio in Inghilterra e in Francia, raggiunse Costantinopoli, dove cercò, forse su consiglio del Voltaire, di restaurare al trono i vecchi Commeni. Soggiornò di nuovo a Milano, quindi visitò il Regno di Napoli e Roma. Fu quindi in Svizzera e poi in Francia, dove dal 1790 fissò la propria residenza, divenendo cittadino francese e avvicinandosi ad alcuni intellettuali, tra cui Condorcet, Bailly, Barthélemy e Mirabeau. Di questi tracciò poi spregiudicati profili nei suoi Mémoires. Nel 1793 riparò di nuovo in Svizzera fuggendo il Terrore. In quell'anno ".egli fece uscire a Parigi i Mémoires secrets, i quali gli suscitarono l'odio di alcuni sovrani, soprattutto di Maria Carolina di Napoli, che lo perseguitò. I Mèmoires,non sono opera di gran valore per la storia del pensiero del G., ché egli mirò a raccontare avventure, viaggi, amori e a descrivere la corruzione delle corti italiane, piuttosto che spiegare il corso delle proprie idee politiche e filosofiche."

This series of essays was a great success, and has been frequently reprinted. Hawkesworth signed the last essay with his full name. He wrote some 70 or 72 of the papers. Hawkesworth had considerable literary talent. So successful was he in the imitation of Johnson's style that Catherine Talbot declared that she discerned Dr. Johnson 'though all the papers". At the beginning of his career he was an intimate friend of Johnson, and was a member of the Rambler Club. The success of the 'Adventurer', according to Hawkins, 'elated him too much' and soon after attaining his Lambeth degree his intimacy with Johnson ceased.

Edward Godfrey Cox states in part on pg. 302 of his reference guide to Travel Literature: "James Rennell spent a great part of his life in India, or occupied in Indian affairs. His maps were of the greatest importance. His survey of Bengal, commenced in 1764, when he was only 22, was the first ever prepared. His second great work was the construction of the first approximately correct map of India. His maps of Africa and especially those prepared for Mungo Parks' Travels were the first to put the geography o that continent into intelligible shape." An important work with nice clean maps with no tears. Internally clean with an occasional browning to a few leaves. Quarto.
