        An Essay on the Nature and Constitution of Man; comprehending an Answer to the Following Question, proposed by a Learned Society: "Are there any satisfactory proofs of the Immateriality of the Soul? If such proofs exist, what conclusions are to be formed from them with respect to the Soul's duration, sensation, and employment, in its state of separation from the Body ?"

      - London: Printed and Sold by James Phillips, George Yard, Lombard-Street, M,DCC,XCIII [1793]. 8vo., (lacking half title), xv, 79 pp. Half cream and half marbled paper boards, blue speckled edges, some minor foxing to edges and endpapers; very good copy. First Edition. Little known Romantic Era author Robert Sims, similar to contemporaries such as William Blake, was interested in the nature of the human soul. He attempts a scientific inquiry into the observable existence of the soul by means of the senses, and defends the souls immortality. Sim's philosophy finds commonality in all religions when it comes to the soul of man, expressing radical viewpoints for the period. ESTC T109873 [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Della libertà e della eguaglianza degli uomini, e dei cittadini. Colle considerazioni sopra alcuni nuovi dommi politici ed appendice.Traduzione italiana dalla prima edizione.Vienna, presso Ignazio Alberti, 1793.

      Vienna, presso Ignazio Alberti 1793 - Cm. 24, pp. (12) 445 (7). Bella legatura coeva in piena pelle con titoli su tassello e ricchi fregi in oro al dorso; piatti inquadrati a duplice cornice dorata. Dentelles, tagli dorati, segnalibro in seta verde. Sottile fenditura al piatto anteriore e minime mende al dorso, qualche trascurabile fioritura, peraltro esemplare ben conservato e stampato su carta forte. Sebastiano d'Ayala (1744-1817), gesuita di Castrogiovanni, fu diplomatico a Vienna e sovente menzionato come biografo e curatore delle opere di Metastasio, del quale peraltro fu amico. L'opera è un interessantissimo saggio sui principi scaturiti dalla Rivoluzione francese: diritti naturali, libertà costituzionale, civile e sociale ed infine le diverse tipologie di eguaglianza. L'Autore fu influenzato dal pensiero politico di Montesquieu e dalle idee controrivoluzionarie di Edmund Burke. Rarissima prima traduzione italiana (curata dall'amico Francesco Ruspoli) impressa dopo la prima in francese edita sempre a Vienna nel 1792. Seguirono, sempre nel 1793, le edizioni di Torino e le due senza dati tipografici, più comuni e di formato più piccolo. Cfr.

Reichenbach studierte ab 1810 Medizin und Naturwissenschaften an der Universität Leipzig, wo er 1815 zum Dr. phil. und 1817 zum Dr. med. promoviert wurde. Er habilitierte sich 1818 und wurde im selben Jahr außerordentlicher Professor, 1820 Ordinarius für Naturgeschichte an der Chirurgisch-medizinischen Akademie in Dresden.

        Mascarades monastiques et religieuses de toutes les nations du globe, représentées par des figures coloriées dans la plus exacte vérité, avec l'abrégé historique, chronologique et critique de chaque ordre, enrichi de notes sur l'origine de toutes ces pieuses folies.

      Paris, an II-1793, - in-8, XXIV-254 pp.-(2), front., 25 pl., demi-veau vert, dos à nerfs orné, tranches marbrées (rel. vers 1820). Dos légt passé, petit défaut au mors inférieur avec une tache noire. Afin de mettre son ouvrage "à la portée de tous les citoyens tant soit peu aisés", l'auteur - qui se cache sous le nom Rabelli, anagramme italianisé de Bar - présente une nouvelle édition de son travail paru en livraisons à partir de 1778 sous le titre Recueil de tous les costumes des ordres religieux et militaires. Celle-ci est "identique quant au fond mais toute différente pour la forme". En effet, l'avis du libraire-imprimeur annonce que "l'ouvrage ne passera pas cinq ou six tomes" mais un seul volume est paru. Bar entreprend de lever le voile de l'hypocrisie et de montrer "sous son vrai point de vue des êtres [d'Église] qui n'avaient jamais été soumis publiquement à l'?il observateur du philosophe". Son explication du frontispice est déjà éclairante. Il y fustige le "despotisme ecclésiastique [qui] entretient l'ignorance sur la terre afin de pouvoir plus sûrement y régner au nom du ciel". Il poursuit sa critique dans le corps de l'ouvrage mais à la fin de chaque chapitre, pour valoriser les passages historiques, il cite ses sources dont son propre Recueil de tous les costumes. Les 26 planches sont gravées à l'eau-forte et à l'aquatinte puis coloriées. Se succèdent 24 planches de costumes de religieux et religieuses aux teintes souvent vives. Bon exemplaire, de la Bibliothèque de Th. de Jonghe (ex-libris). Colas, I, 210. Cohen, 111. Hiler, 63. Monglond, II, 907.

        PRINTED CERTIFICATE FOR THE NORTH AMERICAN LAND COMPANY, COMPLETED IN MANUSCRIPT AND SIGNED BY JAMES MARSHALL AND ROBERT MORRIS].

      Philadelphia. Feb. 20, 1793. - Broadside, 10 x 12 inches. Matted and framed. Minor soiling. Scalloped cut along left margin. Near fine. Document signed by Robert Morris - signer of the Declaration of Independence, the Articles of Confederation, and the United States Constitution, and the "Financier of the Revolution" - granting four shares in the North American Land Company to Dr. Enoch Edwards. Enoch Edwards, a surgeon by trade, was a leading patriot who served as a member of the June 18, 1776 Provincial Congress, and a signer of the 1790 Pennsylvania Constitution. Robert Morris played a leading role in the financial decisions of the Revolutionary government: he founded the first national bank, sought to fund public debts by means of a national revenue, and used his own funds, when necessary, to finance the Revolution and the fledgling American government. In the late 1780s and the 1790s, Morris speculated extensively in various land deals, becoming fabulously wealthy, then losing everything in 1798, spending two and a half years in debtors prison. The North American Land Company, the most ambitious of his schemes, is the venture that finally brought about Morris' downfall. Counter-signed by Secretary James Marshall, brother of future chief justice John Marshall.

      Paris, Imprimerie Nationale 1793 - 3 parties en un vol. in-8, 6-190-170-63 pp., demi-chagrin cerise, dos à nerfs orné de doubles caissons à froid, double filet à froid sur les plats, tête dorée (rel. du XIXe s.). Coupes frottées, mais bon exemplaire. En raison tout simplement de la couleur de sa reliure, on appelle ainsi le très officiel Registre des ordonnances au porteur de 1773 à 1788. Notre exemplaire regroupe les trois parties publiées du second "livre rouge", en fait un registre des dépenses réservées et pensions accordées par la Cour, qui avait déjà été communiqué à Necker et au comité des Pensions de la Constituante, pour la partie concernant le règne de Louis XVI, et fait l'objet d'une publication en avril 1790 (le premier "Livre rouge", d'ailleurs plus complexe dans sa répartition). En-dehors de l'aspect de communication inhérent à ce genre d'exercice, et dont l'opinion sans-culotte usa et abusa, il n'y avait au demeurant rien de très exceptionnel dans cette liste. Martin & Walter, Anonymes, 14313. Exemplaire de J. A. Boulain, avec vignette ex-libris contrecollée sur les premières gardes.

Dos en grande partie manquant, idem pour l'étiquette de titre. Galerie de vers en marge basse jusque la p. 14. Decremps n'était pas lui-même prestidigitateur ni magicien mais son oeuvre écrite est un grand classique de la magie. C'est après avoir assisté aux séances et spectacles de Pinetti, qui se présentait comme physicien, qu'il choisit de dévoiler tous ses tours après que ce dernier lui eut adressé un défi. Les deux hommes n'eurent de cesse de se combattre et les ouvrages de Decremps firient pas assurer la ruine de Pinetti. Decremps assurait vouloir dénoncer tous les charlatans et en donne témoignage dans son avant-propos, bien qu'il ne cite pas Pinetti par son nom. L'ouvrage contient nombre de tours curieux, notamment de télépathie et de divination dont certains emploient les mathématiques  (Enfoncer un couteau dans la tête du coq sans le tuer, tours avec des gobelets, nouveau secret pour faire des jeux de mots, deviner en apparence la pensée d'autrui, Palingénésie ou l'art de faire revivre les morts...).

Stitched yellow stiff wrs.,30 vol. set, 19.7 x 26.5 cm.,title slips,2 indigo-blue folding cloth Chitsu folding cases, bone clasps, clean covers a few dusty, contents very clean & bright, complete set. FIRST EDITION This superb and copious work was initiated in Kansei 5 [1793] by order of Shimazu Shigehide [1745-1833], the Daimyo of Satsuma, i.e. the Feudal Lord [Tycoon]. This area is now called Kagoshima Prefecture, Kyushu. The work was edited by Soh, Han, [aka: by his "studio" or "go" name: Soh Senshun 1758-1834]. . Lord of Shimazu ordered a comprehensive illustrated encyclopedic treatise on agriculture and agricultural botany. The work had an ambitious task, to list every known plant in Japan, with drawings of a large number of examples. Though the original plan was to make this work in 100 volumes, due to fire and other catastrophes, it only went to 30 volumes in all. * EDITORS: The work was edited by Soh Senshun [So Han] & Shirao Kokuchu. *** DISASTER DURING THE COMPLIATION OF THIS WORK: This work was to be the greatest work of botany every published, but was interrupted twice by fire. never progressed beyond the 30 volumes. The work suffered two fires in 1806, and again in 1829. These fires destroyed a great number of the book's woodcut blocks, along with a large number of printed pages stored in a warehouse which burned to the ground. It dealt with agricultural botany, and a few wild food plants. *** THE INCLUSION OF SOME FOREIGN GRAINS & CORN: The work is nicely described & illustrated in Bartlett [see below] as exhibit 33. Figure 29 shows four pages from this work. It also included a bizarre and unusual form of American Indian Maize [i.e. corn] from the new world, known in Japan as Mamekibi. It also shows two other foreign grains: Tobiki or T'ang millet, and Namban millet from the land of the Portuguese or "Southern Barbarians." Also Koma-kibi a Korean millet from the old name Koma for Korea. . The corn was fried in a pan to make "pop-corn" an early record of this kind of usage and food. It may even predate the American usage of corn. *** The contents also deals with the agricultural ceremonies and festivals, planting and tending crops, surveying, irrigation, flood control, farm implements, verities of rice ad various agricultural products. . This famous, stunning and copious work remains one of the most important botanicals ever done in Japan, and is considered one of the most comprehensive and reliable works ever done on the subject in Japan. *** EDITION: This is the FIRST & ONLY EDITION OF THE BOOK. This work was not reprinted nor issued serially, but issued as a set of 30 volumes complete in its one and only edition. *** CONDITION: The set is uniformly bound in stiff yellow stitched wrappers. The first volume covers are dusty front & back; vol.2 & 11 have some stains on the front covers, back covers clean. Vol.8 a bit of stain & spots to lower front cover, back cover clean. Else all other volumes are exceptionally clean both front and back converse as well as bright and clean contents, no worming or other issues.

        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.

        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]

        A treatise upon the law and proceedings in cases of high treason, &c. by a Barrister at Law.

      London: printed for the author by A. Strahan and W. Woodfall 1793 - 8vo., xvi + 154pp., neat repair to final leaf but no loss, contemporary calf, rebacked, corners worn. A good copy, sometime in the library of the Los Angeles Law Society> with bookplate on front pastedown but with no other marks of previous ownership. First and only edition. A timely and apparently authoritative treatise published at a period of almost universal political instability. The lawyer author was evidently an advocate of strong uncompromising government supported by a loyal citizenry. 'It is the duty of every citizen to associate with good men, for the preservation of domestic peace, and for those concerns which are nearest and dearest our hearts, liberty and life. A late attempt to overturn the constitution has been prevented by a manly and unbiassed appeal to the sentiments of the nation.' [Preface]. The 1794 treason trials were intended to cripple the British radical movement of the 1790s, the treason trials of Thomas Hardy, John Horne Tooke and John Thelwall in 1794 (when they were all acquitted) being an extension of the sedition trials of 1792 and 1793 against parliamentary reformers.
