He served diligently in the early days of the colony, though the Sirius was wrecked under his command off the coast of Norfolk Island. This necessitated his return to England, during which time he collaborated in the production of this journal. Having been exonerated, he returned to New South Wales and succeeded Phillip as Governor in 1794. At his behest, exploration of the east coast was conducted ?and the early discoveries of Flinders and Bass owe much to him. His journal is a very valuable work on the early history of the English settlement in Australia? (Hill). The plates are of some importance, the ?View of the Settlement on Sydney Cove, Port Jackson, 20th August, 1788? is the first published view of Sydney and Philip Gidley King's plate of an Aboriginal family is engraved by the English poet and artist William Blake.

        Miscellaneous Pieces, in Prose and Verse; by Charles Graham, Writing-Master And Teacher Of The English Language, Liverpool.

      Printed by T. Schofield, for the author, and sold by the booksellers., Liverpool 1793 - First edition, with an otherwise apparently unrecorded engraved plate bound as a frontispiece. Though having the same title as that of a preceding Kendal edition, this is actually a completely new collection, with only a few repeated articles (enough to assure us that Graham of Kendal is the same individual as Graham of Liverpool), including the essay on cock-fighting. In this 1793 collection, Graham advertises his occupation as writing-master through the elegant engraved plate (by Ashby of London) and the verse 'On the Arts of Penmanship and Engraving'. Graham also notes in his preface 'Some of the Poems were written during our unhappy contest with the Americans, and have some allusion thereto; but I trust, no person will take offence on this account: my remarks are of the pacific kind; being sensible that devastation and slaughter; are incompatible with the Christian name.' The long poem 'Columbus, or the Discovery of America' is offered, with a prose introduction, to mark the three-hundredth anniversary of the voyage of Columbus. It ends with a reference to the construction of Washington, with the footnote: 'The New City of Washington, now Erecting, intended to be the Capital of the United States.' 12mo (174 × 96 mm), pp. 193, [1], with subscribers' list and folding engraved frontispiece; lightly browned throughout; modern half morocco to style by Philip Dusel. [Not in Jackson; not in Johnson; not in Sabin. Scarce: ESTC: BL, Liverpool, Mitchell Library, Bodley, UC Berkeley and UCLA. Of these, none has the engraved plate, and several lack the list of subscribers.] [Attributes: First Edition]

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

      Buisson, 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." (Diz. lett. it. Laterza, III pp. 166 - 169).

        Lettre de quittance, écrite et signée par Redouté

      Paris, 14 septembre 1793, l'an 2e de la République. un billet de 180 x 130 mm, rédigé à l'encre brune, portant en - tête le cachet de minute notarial à l'emblème de la République et avec la devise "la loi le roi" 14 septembre 1793, l'an 2e de la République, 14 septembre 1793, l'an 2e de la République, , un billet de 180 x 130 mm, rédigé à l'encre brune, portant en - tête le cachet de minute notarial à l'emblème de la République et avec la devise "la loi le roi", , Intéressante pièce autographe du peintre Pierre - Joseph Redouté : elle témoigne de son activité de dessinateur scientifique et de ses relations avec deux des plus grands noms du monde des sciences et de la physique de la fin du XVIIIe siècle, Antoine Lavoisier et Jean - Charles Borda, au sujet de l'élaboration du système métrique. En 1792, Redouté, qui passera à la postérité pour ses peintures de fleurs, est employé par l'Académie des sciences. Il signe ici une reconnaissance de paiement perçu de la part du très célèbre Lavoisier : "pour deux dessins que j'ai fait à Mr Borda relatifs aux opérations pour mesurer la longueur du pendule à seconde". Nous avons donc là une minute exceptionnelle, en lien avec l'une des dernières préoccupations de Lavoisier à la veille de son emprisonnement, le 24 novembre 1793, et de son exécution, le 8 mai 1794 : appelé par le gouvernement pour fixer les règles du nouveau système métrique, Lavoisier s'était adjoint l'aide du physicien et navigateur Jean - Charles Borda (1733 - 1799), rendu indispensable pour l'exactitude de ses opérations de pesage. L'importance de cette tâche était de taille : il s'agissait d'uniformiser le système des poids et des mesures dans l'ensemble de la France. Dans ces conditions, Lavoisier fut exceptionnellement autorisé, par délibération de la Commission le 28 frimaire An II (18 décembre 1793), à sortir de sa prison chaque matin accompagné d'un gendarme, pour continuer ses expériences. C'est Borda lui - même qui signa la délibération : "la présence permanente du citoyen Lavoisier, en raison de son talent particulier pour tout ce qui exige de la précision, est irremplaçable. Il est urgent que ce citoyen puisse être rendu aux travaux importants qu'il a toujours suivis avec autant de zèle que d'activité ". Bel état, en dépit d'un renfort marginal au revers et une petite déchirure de 2 cm, sans atteinte au texte

E' l'opera fondamentale di Rousseau, un'autobiografia pubblicata postuma nel 1781, in cui, ispirandosi alle Confessioni di Sant'agostino, crea però uno stile di grande intensità, senza vergognarsi e nascondere nulla. Ottimo esemplare completi di tutti gli occhielli spesso mancanti.

Poorly printed on cheap copy, making the text difficult to read in places, nevertheless a remarkably good copy. Although ESTC calls for a plate, none of the copy specific descriptions from the holding libraries (BL, Wellcome; UCLA, Yale) mention one. Editions often have a frontispiece, but not all, and there is no sign of there ever having been one in this unsophisticated copy. The fiction of Aristotle's authorshop provided a cloak of respectability, but this supposed antiquity of the text is given the lie for instance where, in the closing pages of the Legacy, reference is made to the number of children dying in London thanks to the foul air.

El Examen Marítimo, cuya primera edición es de 1771, es un tratado de mecánica aplicada a la navegación, y es sin duda la obra más importante de su autor. Fue traducida al inglés, francés e italiano. Es un tratado de mecánica sustentado por un gran rigor matemático, que se adoptó como libro de texto en la mayoría de países europeos, entre ellos Francia e Inglaterra. Su autor, Jorge Juan, fue el científico español, del siglo XVIII, que más se preocupó en traer a España los avances matemáticos que se iban produciendo en el extranjero y uno de los más grandes marinos y geómetras de la España del siglo XVIII; los científicos europeos lo distinguieron con el sobrenombre del "sabio español". Esta segunda edición fue notablemente ampliada por Gabriel Ciscar y Ciscar, prestigioso marino de guerra español, considerado también "el primer matemático español de su época". Esta edición ampliada por Ciscar es NOTABLEMENTE MÁS RARA QUE LA PRIMERA EDICIÓN de 1771, y mucho mejor impresa ya que fue mandada a imprimir por la Imprenta Real en excelente papel y con estupendos grabados. En OCLC localizamos 13 ejemplares de la primera edición Y SOLAMENTE 1 EJEMPLAR EN USA de esta edición, en el Harry Ranson Center de la Universidad de Texas. Único tomo publicado. MECHANICS APPLIED TO NAVIGATION - A STUPENDOUS SPANISH IMPRINT- ILLUSTRATED; folio; 14 folding plates; full contemporary Spanish sheep. The Examen Marítimo, the first edition of which is from 1771, is a treatise of mechanics applied to navigation and is, without doubt, the most important work of the author. It was translated into English, French, and Italian. It is a treatise on mechanics supported by rigorous mathematics, that was adopted as a textbook in the majority of European countries, among them France and England. The author, Jorge Juan, was the Spanish scientist of the 18th century who was most concerned with bringing to Spain the mathematical advances that were being made in other countries and one of the greatest mariners and mathematicians in Spain in the 18th century; European scientists distinguished him with the nickname of "The Spanish Savant". This second edition was notably augmented by Gabriel Ciscar y Ciscar, a prestigious officer of the Spanish navy, considered also as "the leading Spanish mathematician of his time". This edition augmented by Ciscar is NOTABLY MORE RARE THAN THE FIRST EDITION of 1771, and a much finer imprint since it was ordered printed by the Imprenta Real on excellent paper and with stupendous engravings. On OCLC we only locate 23 copies of the first edition and ONLY ONE COPY IN THE USA of this edition in the Harry Ransom Center of the University of Texas. 1 volumen(es)/volume(s) 626 páginas [Attributes: First Edition]

        Apendice a la relación del viage al Magallanes.

      1793 - Bound in red morocco for Charles III of Spain, extremely rare, including both parts. 1793. Madrid. Viuda de Ibarra. In 4to. 2 ff. + 128 + 1 folding table and 1 folding map. Contemporary red morocco gilt, with supralibros of Charles III on boards, double-fillet and roll-tooled borders to boards, raised bands to spine with simple tooling, green morocco lettering piece, blue silk endpapers, spots of soiling and very light rubbing, else fine. A very good copy overall, tall and clean, only light occasional marginal damp. 6,000 $ First edition, a fine copy bound in red morocco with the arms of Charles III of Spain, bound post mortem, as the Apendice was printed in 1793 and Charles III just before; normally this work is found bound with the Relación del ultimo viage al Estrecho de Magallanes de la fragata de S. M. Santa Maria de la Cabeza, however they are different publications bibliographically and thus complete in itself, Palau gives the high valuation of 60 Pesetas for 1926 and 1,000 Pesetas for 1969. The fact that even after the King´s death there was a desire to have the book presented with his arms is a testament to the magnitude of the expedition commissioned by the crown, and the respect held for the King. In 1793, an Appendix to the Relacion was published “Obra interesante y bien publicada” (Palau); this part is focused on giving an historical overview of former expeditions to the region, including those of Drake and Bougainville, constituting itself as an invaluable source of information of the Magellan Strait. The illustration comprises a folding map of the Strait. Palau, 352515. Sabin, 16765 (for both parts). Hill, 1756. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Lesson Book, Log, and Letter Book of Benjamin Watson, 1793 - 1802.

      6/25/16. 4to, unpaginated. About 60 pp. of manuscript entries. This is an unusual and fascinating artifact, combining several familiar types of manuscript into a coherent story. The first twenty pages are a typical navigation copy book. It these sorts of manuscripts, the student copied the master's manuscript, or a printed text. This helped the student learn and memorize the various aspects of trigenometry and navigation, and also provided him with a written reference for the future. On the front pastedown, this one is signed by Benjamin Watson and dated 1793. The next twenty-four pages are a "Journal of a Voyage from Bilboa to Plymouth in the Schooner Miles Standish of Plymouth, Solomon Davis Commander; kept by Benjamin Watson Supergargo" This includes regular log entries of daily position, weather and sail handling, and a two page abstract log of the voyage. When the "Miles Standish" reached Bilboa with their cargo of whale and cod oil, they were held in quarantine from December 1800 to March 1801. During this time Watson wrote letters to his bosses at the mercantile firm of Thomas & William Davis of Plymouth, to the American Consul, and to other merchants and ship masters. This book contains Watson's copies of eleven letters written during this time, describing his situation, giving trade prices and gossip, discussing local and international news, and making trade and financial arrangements. The letters total about 2500 words, and are in Watson's hand, with his signature. The mercantile details are of considerable interest. It is obvcious that parts of this book - for example, those pertaining to the voyage from Plymouth to Spain - have been removed, but what remains gives a good picture of the training and activities of Benjamin Watson, supercargo. Watson's son, also Benjamin, was a friend of Thoreau's and a prominent figure in transcendentalist circles.Bound in scarred old pigskin, with semi legible ink inscriptions dating back to the 1760s.

        Letters, on the Subject of the Concert of Princes, and the Dismemberment of Poland and France.

      London: Printed for G. G. J. & J. Robinson,, 1793. Octavo (207 x 128 mm). Contemporary tree calf, red morocco label lettered gilt, spine decorated gilt, boards ruled gilt, inner dentelles gilt, marbled endpapers. Armorial bookplate of Edward Lord Suffield to front pastedown. Some wear to tips, short crack to head of rear joint but still sound, minor loss to head of spine, some errata corrected in ink. An excellent copy, internally fresh. First edition, with the errata leaf. Benjamin Vaughan (1751?1835) was diplomatist, political reformer, and merchant. He was a mediator in the Anglo-American peace talks in Paris in 1782-3, and returned to Paris several times following the outbreak of revolution in France in 1790. These letters first appeared in the Morning Chronicle, written between July 1792 and June 1793, criticising William Pitt's government under his pseudonym A Calm Observer. They were published collectively in this volume and in his 1795 book, Two Papers by the Calm Observer (1795). A pro-French businessman, Vaughan offered a defence of revolutionary rights, condemning the attack by the Northern Powers on Poland and France, and making a case for peace with France, where, fearing arrest, he fled in 1794. He settled in America in 1897.

        A superb content James Watt letter coordinating the installation of a pair of steam engines for the Spanish Ambassador to the United States, Don Diego Gardoqui

      Birmingham, March 25, 1793. 7.5" x 10.5". "Autograph Letter Signed, ""Boulton & Watt,"" 3 pages, 7.5"" x 10"", Birmingham, March 25, 1793, addressed in his hand on the integral address leaf to ""Messrs Fermin de Fastet & Co. Merch[ant]s London"" with a black ""BIRMINGHAM"" cancelation above. Expected folds, seal loss tear infilled, some soiling to transmittal leaf, else very good.Watt writes, in full: ""We advised you in our last, that we had agreed with James Murdoch to go to Spain to erect the BWS Engine — In terms we were able to make with him, were 21/ pr week[?] from the time of his Engagement to his return, and £50 upon the Engines being completed to Satisfaction. This we have engaged to make good to him, he is now under a course of instruction upon the drawings which the very good size of the Engine renders necessary. Yesterday we are informed by letter (of Feby 21st) from J. Watt Junr. that Malcolm Logan had promised to call upon him at Naples previous to his departure for Spain, but had not done it then though the time was long expired which he had allotted for finishing the Mill at Cardita [sic, Catania?], and that as J[ames] W[att] Jr was then just setting and for Sicily, he could not go to enquire after Logan but ha wrote him to press his departure which he was persuaded would meet with no difficulty. He adds in a postscript that he had seen Logan, who had finished the mill & would set[?] and very soon & that he had taken the necessary steps to hasten his departure. It would appear that you will not be doubly provided, but that will be no less as Malcom is a good mill wright, & we expect his assistance will be as much needed in that article as in the Engine. The other is not a mill wright though a good workman in the Engine way[.] We have at last received [a] letter from Liverpool Thorn[?] & Co. say that the first vessel for Cadiz will be the Sarah, the owners of which have not yet fixed the freight, She is to go to Dublin & return before she sails for Cadiz which will be at lest 3 weeks. She is to taken the advantage of convoy & is certain of going, no other will sale from here before her— We have also had an answer form our brother at Bristol, but like the other indeterminate as to rate of freight & when vessels would sail. We therefore think that Hull will prove the best port for shipping the goods & have wrote to Mr Broadley for information. The Engine N1 which is complete will make above 50 tons and we have so many goods ready for No 2 as may make about 80 tons in all — we shall be obliged to you to advise the freight from London to Cadiz for our government also when a convoy may be expected, & her rates of insurance from Liverpool Bristol & Hull respectively. We have wrote again to Liverpool to prevent any engagement but to advise the freight.""A remarkable letter written as Watt's improvements to the steam engine began to bear financial fruit. Although his pioneering steam grist mill in London (the Albion Mills) went up in flames in 1791—the plant had already demonstrated the steam engine's tremendous potential. The firm of Boulton & Watt was soon commending a variety of projects both in Britain and abroad—including projects in Italy and Spain. The project in Cadiz was for a pair of blowing engine for a blast furnace. Don Diego Gardoqui (1735-1798) commissioned the engines through the London merchants Fermin de Tastet & Co. Each fifty horsepower engine supplied air for six furnaces each. (""Plan of blowing engine for Don Diego Gardoqui, Cadiz, Spain, 1793, Archives of Soho, Birmingham City Archives, Ref. MS3147/Portfolio/5/592). Don Diego Gardoqui was himself living in America, serving as the Spanish Ambassador to the United States. (During the American Revolution, he acted as the financial intermediary between the Spanish crown and the United States—helping secure critical arms and supplies).However, James Murdoch, who had been tasked with supervising the engine's installation in Cadiz, delayed the project. Born in 1768, he was the brother of William Murdoch (1754-1839) who came to work for Watt in 1777 and soon became an important collaborator for Watt developing several important improvements in the steam engine. William also developed early steam turbines, experimented with compressed air leading the way for pneumatic tube messaging systems, and the production of gas from coal. In 1810, he became a partner in Boulton & Watt led the company in the production of steam engines for ships.James appears not to have shared his brother's industrious nature, as evidenced in the present letter. In October of the same year, Watt proposed replacing Murdoch with Richard Mitchell, complaining that the former had been ""behaving very ill in drawing money, & have also heard accounts of his behaviour in this country which are unpleasing."" A week and a half later Watt lamented, ""we are in much want of some one there [Spain] James Murdoch's conduct has been execrably bad, he has drawn money every way he could, & refuses to work unless they pay him seven Dollars a day,"" concluding that ""we are obliged to recall him, & shall be brought into damages by his proceedings, this we wish to imparted to his Brother [William]..."" (Watt to Thomas Wilson, October 10, 1793, Boulton and Watt Papers, Cornwall Record Office; Watt to Wilson, October 23, 1783, Ibid). "
