        A narrative of the sufferings of James Bristow, belonging to the Bengal Artilley [sic], during ten years captivity with Hyder Ally and Tippoo Saheb.

      London J. Murray 1793 - First London edition. 8vo., vi, 210pp., contemporary tree calf gilt, red morocco label by Kalthoeber with his ticket, lightly rubbed, a fine copy. Scarce. "Hyder and Tipu's policy of moving their prisoners around the Carnatic is evidenced in the narratives and journals of those individuals who survived to tell the tale, as are the torments endured by British officers and soldiers, compounded by their being forced to march for days in the extreme heat – starving, bound and often ill, injured or dying – between the hill forts . Indeed, the fact that he and his fellow soldiers moved around the countryside is crucial to Bristow's account of his captivity. In the preface to the first edition of his narrative, published in Calcutta, Bristow justifies adding to the already significant stock of information on the British prisoners of war, and distinguishes his tale from that of more senior members of the military: A captivity of ten years during which period several removals from one place of imprisonment to another took place, and many changes in point of treatment occurred, includes much more variety than the account of what befell our officers, who remained under close confinement, till delivered up; and admitted more opportunities to see the country, to converse with the natives, whose language naturally became familiar and to learn the fate and disposal of a number of fellow captives, not liberated at the peace, some of whom had been prisoners for many years in short, to be better informed than Gentlemen who were never suffered to step beyond the limits of their prison wall. Several of the vexations and acts of violence committed against the private soldiers could not reach the knowledge of the officers, though many of them came to their ears; nor could they know what befell them subsequent to their release Bristow not only denotes a hierarchy of suffering – distinguishing those soldiers who were forcibly marched through the Carnatic from the more senior officers who apparently suffered fewer 'vexations' in their fixed prison sites – but also indicates that being moved around the inhospitable landscape was a defining aspect of his captivity. Encountering and enduring the landscape, whether as prisoner or victor, is a formative aspect of war".

        THE BOTANICAL MAGAZINE; OR, FLOWER GARDEN DISPLAYED. volumes 1-55.

      London 1791-1828 1793 - Volumes 1-55 plus the index to the first 53 volumes bound in 43 volumes. Illustrated with 2 portraits of Curtis and 2890 FINE HAND COLOURED ENGRAVED PLATES plus 3 uncoloured plates, including numerous folding plates. The index to the first 42 volumes bound in volume 42 with a separate title page. Collating as follows - wanting 8 plates (2022, 2031, 2043, 2052, 2053, 2571, 2717 and 2809) but with 19 hand coloured plates in duplicate (2531-1550) as the binder bound them in twice. Plus 4 extra hand coloured bis plates. Titles all present and with accompanying uncollated text. All bound in calf boards with uniform 19th century calf backs, some wear and a couple of boards off in the last volumes- the first 28 in reasonably attractive condition. 2 volumes wrongly numbered on the spine. Condition- occasional minor offset as usual and the flimsies spotted -and the first 10 plates in volume 50 with a small marginal hole. A MAJOR RUN OF THIS IMPORTANT BOTANICAL PERIODICAL. -The Botanical Magazine became a primary source for the study of the history of gardening tastes and methods, and of plant introductions. This, combined with the work of some of the greatest botanical artists, means -the reputation of the magazine has always resided in the accuracy of its portrayal of plants. this pictorial record of garden and greenhouse plants from the temperate and tropical regions of the world has no rival. The work was immediately successful, (its publication continuing almost without interruption until 1983), endorsing Curtis's theory that his clients, who refused to buy folio pictures of unassuming plants, would subscribe to an octavo work which pictured showy plants that filled their gardens.

        Description of the estate and abbey of Culross. Particularly of the mineral and coal property. Wherein is given an account of the coal workings at Culross since the year 1572. Together with a description of the coal mining field, on the Frith of Forth; shewing that the Frith coal owners cannot receive the smallest injury by a repeal of the duty on coals, whether on English or Scots coals imported into or vended in Scotland, &c. &c.

      Edinburgh printed at Edinburgh 1793 - 8vo., 75 + (1)pp., with the near-contemporary scoring through of the words 'and abbey' on title-page and on A2 (see further note below), recent marbled boards lettered on spine. A very good copy. First edition. The Kress copy (B 2484) is of the later issue - with the phrase 'and Abbey' removed. The inclusion of the reference to Culross Abbey was evidently a mistake: virtually the whole of the text is devoted to a detailed account of the Culross coal mines. During the 16th and 17th centuries, Culross (in Fife, Scotland) was a centre of the coal mining industry. In 1575, Sir George Bruce of Carnock established at Culross the first coal mine in the world to extend under the sea. The mine used ingenious contrivances to drain the constant leakage of sea water from above. The mine was considered one of the marvels of the British Isles in the early 17th century until it was destroyed in a storm in 1625. The Earl of Dundonald (1748-1831), the owner of the Culross estates in the late 18th century, was a highly inventive chemical manufacturer already with several patents to his name. (His first patent, dated April 1781, was for extracting, tar, pitch, essential-oils, volatile-alkali, mineral-acids, salts and cinders, from pit-coal). By 1793, he had become financially embarrassed and evidently put his mining interests in the market, the present publication being a detailed sales prospectus. 'As the estate, forest, coal, and mineral-property, will, in a few months be brought to sale, this short description of it is given to those who may wish to become purchasers'. Although it seems that no purchaser was found, Cochrane's description of the coal and mineral resources on his estate provide an extraordinarily detailed portrait of these pioneering developments in commercial derivatives extracted from coal.

A valuable essay, directed specifically at the socio-economic problems of Ireland, which analyses the causes of Irish distress. The author suggests as remedies a bounty on the exportation of corn (p.241) and a prohibition on the export of wool (p.303). Malthus (Essay on Population>, book iv, ch. xi, note) records his view that Crumpe's Essay> was 'an excellent treatise'.

The author was an intelligent physician residing in Limerick. The principles which pervade the work are sound; and those parts of it which have special reference to Ireland are distinguished by the absence of prejudice, and by their practical good sense'.

        Grand Cricket Match, played in Lord’s Ground Mary-le-bone, on June 20th & following day between the Earl’s [sic] of Winchelsea & Darnley for 1000 Guineas.

      London: J. Wheble 1793 - Engraved frontispiece to the June 1793 issue of ‘The Sporting Magazine’. THE ONLY AUTHENTICATED PICTURE OF CRICKET ON THOMAS LORD’S FIRST GROUND, on the site of Dorset Square, London NW1, of which he was tenant from 1787 – 1810. It accompanied an article “The Laws of cricket, as revised by the Cricket Club at St. Mary-le-bone”. George Finch, 9th Earl of Winchilsea (1752-1826) was a founding member of the MCC and alongside John Bligh, 4th Earl of Darnley (1767–1831), an important aristocratic patron of 18th century cricket. Winchilsea’s MCC team with three Hambledon players “given” beat Darnley’s Kent side by 10 wickets. It is curious that two-stump wickets are depicted as the third stump was provided for in the 1785 edition of the Laws. One of the two figures sitting on the bench in the foreground with his back to the viewer is the MCC’s first scorer, Samuel Britcher. Britcher compiled the first ‘cricket annual’ in 1790. Offered with a photocopy of the authenticated scorecard from ‘Cricket Scores and Biographies’ Vol. I, pp. 149-150 (the book is also for sale, separately).

        1793 Pallas Travels Through Russian Empire RUSSIA Asia Geography Zoology Lamarck

      Paris : chez Maradan, An II. [1793/94]. - 1793 Pallas Travels Through Russian Empire RUSSIA Asia Geography Zoology Lamarck Peter Simon Pallas was an 18th-century German voyager zoologist. He is most-remembered for his voyages in Russia in which he wrote an extensive topographical history of Russia. This fascinating work covered a wide range of topics including geology, mineralogy, and zoology as well as dealing with native people covering their cultures, customs, and religions. This 1793 French edition is a new edition of the original work, revised by Lamarck and Langles. (Richarderie; Monglond). Pallas was sent by the Academy of St. Petersburg to observe the passage of the planet Venus in front of the Sun. He would spend six years traveling all through Russia and this narrative of Russia opened up the rest of the world to traveling in Russia, something that had not yet been published to that point.

        Forms of prayer, for the use of a congregation of Protestant Dissenters, in Bradford.

      Trowbridge: printed by Abraham Small 1793 - 8vo., (4) + 106pp., with p.48 misnumbered 8, contemporary sheep, with 'Grove Meeting 39'> in gilt on upper cover, the binding neatly rebacked and repaired, spine lettered gilt. A very good crisp copy. First edition (but see notes). Bradford in this case refers to Bradford on Avon, Wiltshire. The Grove Meeting House (now the Zion Baptist Chapel), built in 1698, was the oldest nonconformist place of worship in Bradford on Avon. In 1793 there seems to have been a pretty small congregation, describing themselves as Unitarians, led by a Mr. Williams of Calne who died in 1810. It must have been he who adopted the liturgy then in use at the principal Unitarian Chapel in Manchester. An Advertisement in this volume, dated 10th August, 1793, confirms this as the source of the Grove Meeting liturgy. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Kjobenhavns Universitets-Journal udgiven ved Professor Jac. Baden. Ferste Aagang. [ - niende Aagang].

      Kiobenhavn -1801 1793 - 9 vols., 4to., complete except for one defective index leaf and lack of some printed wrappers, (see full collation below), entirely uncut. An excellent set now preserved in two purpose-made boxes, each labelled appropriately. Each separate issue has a very small discard stamp of Stockholm University Library>. There are no other marks except for two early ownership signatures on the upper wrapper of the first fascicule. A complete run of this academic journal published quarterly from 1793 to 1801. (No more published). Apparently very rare: no copies found on OCLC. The Kjobenhavns Universitets-Journal> was edited by Jacob Baden (1735-1804), Professor of Philology (notably Danish and Latin) at the University of Copenhagen from 1780 until his death. The journal's purpose seems to have been two-pronged: (1) To provide a vehicle for university news, lecture schedules, faculty curricula, examination programmes, lists of degrees conferred, details of stipends available, &c., and (2) To provide a printed medium for articles, reviews, lecture synopses, and so forth, that reflected Baden's conservative views, particularly in literature and philosophy. A notable example of this is a series of summaries of lectues refuting Kant given by Niels Treschow (1751-1833), the Norwegian philosopher and himself a graduate of the University of Copenhagen where he lectured until 1813 when he returned to Christiana (Oslo) to assume a prominent role in launching Norway's first university. Jacob Baden also used his journal as a sounding board for his own efforts to keep the Danish language 'pure' while still allowing it to accommodate modern developments. For example, the journal contains in serial form a supplement to Baden's orthographic Danish dictionary, introducing 'modern' words such as 'demokrati', 'despot', 'physiognomik', and 'psykologi'. The full collation and condition notes are as follows: Vol.I. 1793. Første Aargang>. 4to., (2) + 190pp., engraved vignette on title-page, original printed blue upper wrapper repaired, final index leaf (table of contents) defective, lower wrapper replaced, entirely uncut. Vol.II. 1794. Anden Aargang>. 4to., (2) + 194pp., engraved vignette on title-page, original printed blue wrappers, neatly repaired at spine, entirely uncut. Vol.III. 1795.

        A Treatise of Equity. With the addition of marginal references and notes.

      Wheldon and Butterworth, London., 1793-4. First edition. Octavo. Two volumes: pp x, 449, [14] index; xxiv, 495, [35] (index of cases referred to), [26] (general index), [1] (errata). Full eighteenth-century calf, raised bands, red leather title-labels lettered in gilt. The authorship of the book has been nominally ascribed to Henry Ballow who anonymously published an edition in 1737 but which was so lacking in notes and references as to be useless. It was under Fonblanque's editorship and thanks to his massive additions that the book soon became the standard work on equity. Samuel Johnson claimed that what he knew of law he learned from "a Mr. Ballow, a very able man." Little is known of him but there is an interesting contemporary account: "There was a man of the name of Ballow who used to pass his evenings at Tom's Coffee House in Devereux Court, then the resort, of some of the most eminent men for learning. Ballow was a man of deep and extensive learning, but of vulgar manners, and, being of a splenetic temper, envied [the poet Mark] Akenside for the eloquence he displayed in his conversation. Moreover, he hated him for his republican principles. One evening at the coffee house a dispute between these two persons rose so high, that for some expression uttered by Ballow, Akenside thought himself obliged to demand an apology, which not being able to obtain, he sent his adversary a challenge in writing. Ballow, a little deformed man, well known as a saunterer in the park, about Westminster, and in the streets between Charing Cross and the houses of parliament, though remarkable for a sword of an unusual length, which he constantly wore when he went abroad, had no inclination for fighting, and declined an answer. The demand for satisfaction was followed by several attempts on the part of Akenside to see Ballow at his lodgings, but he kept close till, by the interposition of friends, the difference could be adjusted. By his conduct in this business Akenside acquired but little reputation for courage, for the accommodation was not brought about by any concessions of his adversary, but by a resolution from which neither of them would depart, for one would not fight in the morning, nor the other in the afternoon."Covers darkened at spine and a little scuffed and rubbed at edges. Very good, internally bright, copy. Scarce.

        Dissertations and Miscellaneous Pieces relating to the History and Antiquities, the Arts, Sciences, and Literature, of Asia.

      1793 - London, Printed for G. Nicol, 1792. Two volumes, 8vo. Contemporary tree calf, contrasting lettering pieces to spines; pp. [xii], 420; [viii], 411; wear to joints, and extremities; internally rather clean; provenance: mid 20th-century bookplates of David Arthur Pailin, Manchester University professor of religion and theology, writer on theism. First edition. 'Jones founded the Bengal Asiatic Society in 1784 in an attempt to convey to the Western world some idea of the richness of Indian and Arabian culture. Based on a thorough knowledge of Sanskrit, his contributions to the Society - including comparative essays on the Arabs, the Persians, the Tartars, the Chinese, the Hindus, and their literatures - mark an era in the study of the Indian languages, literature, and philosophy' (DNB). These two volumes deal much with Indo-Chinese cultural interchange and the region between the two cultures, the Himalayas and their rich culture and believe systems, including the first published account of Tibet and Bhutan by an Englishman, Captain Samuel Turner, who was sent there by Warren Hastings. The Dissertations and Miscellaneous Pieces contain Turner’s letters to John Macpherson, the Governor-General of Bengal, relating his interview with Teeshoo Lama at the Monastery of Terpaling, and a travelogue of a journey to Tibet made by Poorungeer, a Gosseyn, and his reception by the Lama. Turner’s full report was not published until 1800. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Ausführung des Plans und Zweks Jesu. In Briefen an Wahrheit forschende Leser.

      Berlin, August Mylius 1791-1793. - Goedeke IV,825,70 (Bd 1-8). ADB 1,722f. ). Meusel. Verst. Teutsche Schriftsteller 1,145f. ? der evangelische Theologe und radikale Aufklärungsschriftsteller K. F. Bahrdt (1740-1792) versucht in vorl., in 32 Briefen gegliederte, ?Ausführung des Plans und Zwecks Jesu? eine naturalistische, von deistischem Gedankengut getragene, Interpretation der Lebensgeschichte Jesu. Der Autor wurde, auf Grund seiner freizügigen Lebensführung u. nicht zuletzt wegen einer umstrittenen Bibelübersetzung, jeder theologischen Tätigkeit enthoben und 1789 wegen einer vom ihm verfassten Satire gegen das preußische Religionsedikt zu Festungsarrest verurteilt. - "Endlich in seiner "Ausführung des Plans und Zweckes Jesu" (1783) erscheint B., dem alten Freimaurer und Gründer der deutschen Union, gleichsam einer Fortsetzung des Illuminatenordens, Jesus als Stifter einer geheimen Ordensgesellschaft mit drei Graden, bestimmt das heilige Depot der vernünftigen Religion im Stillen zu verwahren, um es gegen Aberglauben und Priesterbetrug zu schützen, wie denn auch schon Moses mittelst einer Art von Maurerei und durch Geheimnisse die Israeliten vom Joch der Aegypter befreite. An den Ordensbrüdern hatte Jesus willige Werkzeuge, die bei den wunderbar scheinenden Handlungen und besonders zur Zeit seines Leidens und Sterbens als stärkende Engel und als Engel in Weißen Kleidern sich thätig erwiesen. Nach der scheinbaren Himmelfahrt lebte Jesus als unbekannter Oberer im Cercle einer Mutterloge fort, in welche noch Paulus aufgenommen wurde. Wie hier B. das Leben des Herrn in einen abenteuerlich sentimentalen Roman verwandelt hat, so war er selbst ein abenteuernder, immer tiefer sinkender Libertin, lustig im Leben, leicht und Alles nur anstreifend in der Wissenschaft."

Lit: Landwehr, Col. plates, nr. 286; niet in Lipperheide en Colas; Bodel Nijenhuis 171 en p. 305; Tiele 407."."Nederlandse vertaling van ‘Ueber die vereinigten Niederlande', verschenen in hetzelfde jaar te Gotha. In zijn voorwoord merkt de anonieme vertaler op dat Grabner zich zijns inziens wat te veel beperkt tot het gewest Holland en wel erg vriendelijk is over ons land, maar hij acht het boek toch belangrijk voor de kennis van ons land. De prenten zijn in deze Nederlandse editie anders dan in de Duitse. Nu betreft het vier ongesigneerde handgekleurde gravures van Hindeloper, Friese, Zuid-Bevelandse en Zaanse dames in streekkostuum. Het Bijvoegsel betreft een brief van de auteur aan Loosjes, gedateerd Steenbergen 2 april 1793, waarin hij meedeelt tevreden te zijn over de vertaling, maar dat hij toch een aantal opmerkingen heeft, o.a. over de Haarlemmermeer, het dragen van borstlappen en turf als brandstof. Eigenlijk blijkt dat hij zich geërgerd heeft aan eigenwijsheid van de vertaler. Voorts deelt hij in een noot wat cijfers mee over de mortaliteit te Steenbergen."

Ces volumes relatent le naufrage du vaisseau de la Compagnie des Indes orientales L'Antelope dans l'archipel des îles Palaos en Micronésie et la remise à neuf du navire, grâce au soutien des habitants. Wilson put regagner Macao après un séjour de 3 mois, accompagné du second fils du roi, Lee Boo. Lee Boo est de fait l'un des premier océaniens à visiter l'Angleterre ; il y mourut de la petite vérole 5 mois après son arrivée. L'ouvrage comprend, in fine, un vocabulaire français-paluan. La première édition française a paru en un volume in-4 en 1788. Exemplaire portant le monogramme CR doré en pied du dos : peut-être Claude Rey, élève de l'Institut du Verbe Incarné (nous avons trouvé le cachet de ce dernier dans des ouvrages de la même provenance). Petits trous de vers à la reliure, coins usés, légères rousseurs. Brunet III, 647.
