        John Hargrave, George, Leek

      F. Hilliard, printer, Leek, [Stratfordshire] 1793 - Small broadside, 158 x 96 mm, text within typographic border, annotated in ink on recto, with cost of goods, and further annotated: "March 6th 1793, 18/6, Waiter 1.6, Settled 2.0.0, J. Hargrave." Also annotated on the verso: "6th March 1793." Age toning, very good. The printer, F. Hilliard, shows up once in OCLC, as the printer of an auction broadside Timber. To be sold by auction, at the house of Mr. Wilkinson, the Black Swan, in Congleton. in 1792; and he also likely printed another auction broadside announcing the sale of the estate of Thomas Salt, a bankrupt, in 1795 - a sale held at the George Inn (see below).A rare late 18th-century bill of sale from the George Inn, a Leek (Stratfordshire) tavern and inn, signed and dated by the owner. With printed columns for pounds, shillings, and pence. Twelve categories of goods and services are printed: Eating; Tea and Coffee; Wine and Negus; Liquors & Punch; Ale and Porter; Cyder; Writing Paper; Chamber Fire; Tobacco; Servants Eating & Ale; Hay & Corn; Post Chaise. This bill of fare, dated March 6th, 1793, added up to 20 shillings, 20 pence, but was apparently settled for an even 20 shillings. It comprised: Eating, 6 shillings, Wine & Negus, 10 shillings; Liquors & Punch, 6 pence; and Ale & Porter, 2 shillings. At bottom, an additional 1 shilling, 6 pence was added as a waiter’s tip. Signed by J. Hargrave and marked "Settled." A rare survival providing an interesting glimpse into late 18th-century English tavern history. The receipt here records only eating and drinking, the majority spent on wine/negus, liquor/punch and ale/porter, for a total of 12 shillings, 6 pence; only 6 shillings was spent on eating. Also of interest is the manuscript addition of a waiter’s tip. The George, a Staffordshire coaching inn on the corner of Spout and Church Streets, is known to have existed by 1776 and was probably built in the 1760s. It is listed as one of the two principal inns in Leek in 1787 along with the Swan with Two Necks. (See Tunicliffe, A Topographical Survey of the Counties of Stafford, Chester, and Lancaster, Nantwich, 1787.) In the old coaching days, it was esteemed as the most comfortable house between London and Manchester. The George was demolished in 1972 for the widening of Church Street. The George was acquired by Henry Dewhurst in the 1760s who also used the inn as a venue for local real estate auctions, a practice that continued well into the 19th century. Dewhurst sold the inn to John Hargrave (1738-1820) sometime in the 1780s. Hargrave served as an officer in the Royal Regiment of Horse guards in the Seven Years’ War under the command of the Marquis of Granby, whose secretary he then became (see The New Monthly Magazine and Universal Register, London, 1820, p. 758). After running the inn for at least thirty years, Hargrave died at age 84 in Leek. That Hargrave served under Granby is of some interest, as John Manners (1721-1770), Marquis of Granby, has the distinction of having had numerous pubs named after him—a result of setting up so many of his own men as tavern keepers when they left the army, as here. Nicknamed "Generous Granby," he was a Colonel of the Royal Regiment of Horse-Guards by 1758, a hero of the Seven Years’ War in the Battle of Minden; he was named Commander-in-Chief of the British Army in 1767. Hargrave is noted as the owner of The George in a notice as early as 1789. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Embothrium Speciosissimum

      Published by J. Sowerby & Co, London 1793 - Hand coloured engraved plate, 235 x 170mm, mounted and in a handsome nineteenth century timber frame. This superb image, 'the most magnificent plant which the prolific soil of New Holland affords is, by common consent both of Europeans and Natives, the Waratah. It is more over a favourite with the latter, upon account of a rich honeyed juice which they sip from its flowers." (Smith)The engraver James Sowerby was a natural historian and artist, he collaborated with James Smith (1759-1828), one of the first botanists to work on the plant specimens sent back to England from the new colony. In 1793 Smith and Sowerby produced the first publication devoted to Australian flora, A Specimen of the Botany of New Holland. This was the first time that the Waratah was described and Edwards gave the species its original binomial name, Embothrium speciosissimum.Interestingly Edwards notes that this engraving was drawn from a coloured drawing made from the wild plant, compared with the very fine dried specimens sent by Mr White.

        Das entdeckte Geheimniss der Natur im Bau und in der Befruchtung der Blumen.

      - Berlin, Vieweg, 1793. 4to (250 x 210mm). pp. (4), 443, (4), with an engraved title page showing a graceful border of flowers and insects by Jaeck and Arndt, and 25 fine engraved plates, drawn by the author. 19th century boards, spine with green gilt lettered label. A cornerstone in the study of pollination. First edition of Sprengel's remarkable work, printed in double columns, with 25 plates showing more than 1000 drawings of floral parts, representing over 400 species.The work was forgotten for over half a century until Darwin brought it back to life and showed its importance in the discussion on the theory of evolution and descent. Dr. Wilhelm Junk (1866-1942) stated that Sprengel's case was similar to that of Mendel, whose 'Versuche über Pflanzenhybriden' (1865) remained unnoticed for 35 years. Mendel's paper and Sprengel's book are both of legendary importance. Christian Konrad Sprengel (1750-1816), was rector of the Great Lutheran City School at Spandau, where he taught languages and natural sciences between 1780 and 1794. There in 1787, he became fascinated by the process of pollination when he noticed hairs on the petals of Geranium flowers. For the next six years he devoted himself with complete absorption to examining and recording the relations between flowers and their pollinating insects. In 1793 he published his great work, which translates into: 'Revelation of the secret of nature in the construction and fertilization of the flower'. This was quite revolutionary for the time. When the book was published it was no success at all; in fact Sprengel was so depressed by its poor reception that he abandoned botany. The last 5 plates with insignificant faint dampstain at the upper margin.Provenance: Signature of Carl Gruner at lower margin of title and another signature at the upper margin.Nissen BBI, 1883; DSB vol.12 p. 587; Junk Rara, 63; Dibner, Heralds of Science, 30; Norman, 1990; Stafleu and Cowan, 12672; Pritzel 8856.

        THE NATURAL HISTORY OF BIRDS

      London: Printed for A. Strahan, T. Cadell, and J. Murray, 1793. First Edition in English y. In immaculate "country house" condition, this is the second portion of Buffon's immense natural history to be translated into English, after the appearance of the volumes on mammals in 1780. The leading naturalist of the Enlightenment and the director of the Jardin de Roi (now Jardin des Plantes) in Paris, Buffon (1707-88) became the first person to present the natural world as one unified whole, entirely explicable in scientific terms, and in a popular form. His enormously influential "Histoire Naturelle" (1749-88) was one of the most widely read works of the period. Modern evolutionary biologist Ernst Mayr called Buffon "the father of all thought in natural history in the second half of the 18th century" and declared that the "Natural History" was read by "every educated person in Europe." The engravings here show birds at rest, usually perched on a branch or rock, in their natural habitat. Sometimes architectural features appear in the background: we see a pyramid behind the Egyptian ibis, and a gull contemplates a dockside tower. Buffon's bird engravings were so popular that the great porcelain manufacturer Sèvres produced a set of china decorated with his naturalistic representations. Former owner Sir Richard Bempde-Johnstone (1732-1807) was a member of parliament who resided at Hackness Hall in North Yorkshire. Our volumes are virtually unchanged from the time they first graced the library in that manor house.. 221 x 137 mm. (8 3/4 x 5 1/2"). Nine volumes. Translated from the French by William Smellie. First Edition in English. FINE CONTEMPORARY TREE CALF, smooth spines divided into panels by double gilt rules, red morocco labels. With 262 engraved plates. Front pastedown with engraved armorial bookplate of Sir Richard Bempde-Johnstone, Bart. Faint offsetting from engravings, occasional mild foxing, other trivial imperfections, but A VERY FINE SET, the text clean, fresh, and bright, and THE BINDINGS LUSTROUS AND UNWORN.

        THE AMERICAN UNIVERSAL GEOGRAPHY, OR, A VIEW OF THE PRESENT STATE OF ALL THE EMPIRES, KINGDOMS, STATES, AND REPUBLICS IN THE KNOWN WORLD, AND OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA IN PARTICULAR

      Boston, 1793. Antique-style three-quarter calf and marbled boards. Light scattered foxing and soiling. Very good. Jedidiah Morse (1761-1826) was a noted clergyman and an important contributor to geographical publications, considered the "father of American Geography." In 1797 he published THE AMERICAN GAZETTEER, which went through several editions. "During their author's lifetime the Morse geographies virtually monopolized their field in the United States" - DAB. Morse published his AMERICAN GEOGRAPHY in 1789, which was well received. "Morse began to revise his book as soon as it was published. He also expanded it to include the eastern hemisphere in a second volume, against the advice of some of his colleagues. The revision was published in 1793 as THE AMERICAN UNIVERSAL GEOGRAPHY, with volume one on the United States and volume two on the rest of the world. Within two years the new book had sold 6,000 copies of volume one and 4,500 of volume two" - ANB. EVANS 25847. RINK 268. WHEAT & BRUN 19, 153, 168, 438, 494, 686, 706, 758, 844, 873.

        [K527]. Il Dissoluto Punito o Sia Il D. Giovanni Drama giocoso... messa per il Piano Forte Del Carlo Zulehner. No. 138. Fr. 21. Fl. 10. [Piano-vocal score]

      Magonza: B. Schott [PN 138], 1793. First Edition, fifth issue, distinguished by the presence of two prices on the title, "Fr.21/Fl. 10." Scarce. The Prague version, without recitatives. Slight variant of Haberkamp text volume p. 293, with plate numbers on p. 64 and 195. Hirsch IV, 134 (first issue). Fuld p. 371. Hoboken 11, 343 (first issue). RISM M4504. An opera buffa in two acts to a libretto by Lorenzo Da Ponte, Don Giovanni was first performed in Prague at the National Theatre on October 29, 1787. "Don Giovanni is governed by a single idea, Giovanni';s flouting of society in pursuit of sexual pleasure, which binds together a disparate set of ambivalent or comic incidents. The libretto has been unfairly criticized; its episodic nature is a condition of the subject, in which respect it differs from Figaro and Così. Divine retribution appears like an act of God, or a different kind of life-force personified in the statue; what in previous treatments had been comic, perfunctory or merely gruesome, is raised to sublimity by Mozart';s music." Julian Rushton in Grove Music Online.. Oblong folio. Disbound. [1] (title within oval decorative border), [2] (blank), 3-207, [i] (blank) pp. Engraved. Text in Italian and German. Slightly worn, stained, and creased; minor offsetting.

        Thosel, Dublin

      London: Published by Jas.Malton & G. Cowen Dublin, 1793. Colour-printed aquatint. Very good condition apart from some overall light soiling and a few mild vertical creases extending through the image and spanning the height of the sheet. Trimmed to the platemark on all sides. A fine plate from the first edition of 'Picturesque Views of the City of Dublin', Malton's detailed topographical and architectural survey of Georgian Dublin. Located at the intersection of Shop and West Streets, the Tholsel (city hall) was erected 1770 on the site where the medieval wooden Tholsel once stood. This beautiful limestone building was the center of Dublin's municipal authority as well as a prime social meeting point until the nineteenth century. The son of the architectural draughtsman Thomas Malton, James Malton was an engraver and watercolourist, who once taught geometry and perspective and worked as a draughtsman in the office of the celebrated Irish architect James Gandon. He is best known for Picturesque and Descriptive View of the City of Dublin , a highly acclaimed series of twenty-five engravings that was published between 1792-1799. Malton's beautifully coloured prints from this work, which depict many of the impressive new public buildings erected, truly capture the dramatic architectural metamorphosis Dublin underwent in the eighteenth century. His later publications include Four Views in Devon (1800), a small collection of aquatints after F. Keenan, and Essay on British Cottage architecture (1804). Cf. Abbey, Scenery of Great Britain and Ireland in aquatint and lithography 1770-1860 ; cf. Benezit, Dictionnaire des Peintres, Sculpteurs, Dessinateurs, et Graveurs , vol. 9, p. 117; cf. Dictionary of National Biography.
