        Decret de la Convention Nationale (...) qui defend les clubs

      1793. The Jacobins Suppress "Les Clubs & Societes Populaires de Femmes" [Women]. [French Revolution]. Decret de la Convention Nationale, Du 9.e Jour du 2.e Mois de l'An Second de la Republique Francais, Une & Indivible, Qui Defend les Clubs & Societes Populaires de Femmes [Running Title]. N.p.:, s.n., [1793]. 3, [1] pp. Quarto (9" x 7"). Pamphlet bound into recent paper-covered boards, lettering piece to spine. Very light rubbing to extremities, corners bumped. Leaves washed, leaving text somewhat faint, but perfectly legible, worm track to bottom edges of leaves mended with Japan paper. * A rare independent printing of infamous Decret No. 1809 of the 9 Brumaire of Year 2 (October 30, 1793) intended for public distribution. Women played an active role in the revolution, both as individuals and as members of such female organizations as the Societe des Citoyennes Republicaines Revolutionnaires and Societe des Republicaines Revolutionnaires. Many of these women were motivated, at least in part, by a desire to create a society that would offer political and civil rights to women, a cause promoted by female organizations in the opening phases of the Revolution. When the Jacobins seized control, they suppressed this movement. The first step was the decree offered here, which abolished "les clubs & societes populaires de femmes" in October 1793. Afterwards, their leaders were arrested and the movement was crushed. About a decade later the Napoleonic Code would cement the second-class status of French women. Our imprint appears to be unrecorded. We located similar imprints from Auch, Epinal, Marseilles and Saintes. OCLC locates 1 of each of these 4 imprints, none in North America.

        CASES DETERMINED IN THE COURT OF KING'S BENCH; DURING THE I, II & III YEARS OF CHARLES I. COLLECTED BY JOHN LATCH...Translated into the English Language, by Francois- Xavier Martin

      Newbern: From the translator's press, 1793. [244]pp. Modern half calf and marbled boards, leather label. Contemporary ownership inscription on titlepage. Moderate tanning and foxing. Very good. An important work of law, first published in French in 1661, translated and printed here by François-Xavier Martin. Born in France, Martin arrived in North Carolina as a young man, became a lawyer, and set up a printing press. He was a prolific author and translator of legal books, and he is considered a pioneer of the codification movement. After a vigorous career in North Carolina he moved to Louisiana, where he ultimately became attorney general of the state as well as authoring more works of law and history. This copy bears the signature of "Wm. Watts Jones," likely the member of the North Carolina General Assembly in the 1820s. ESTC W37683. EVANS 254751, 25702. McMURTRIE (NORTH CAROLINA) 182.

        An Inquiry into the Nature and the Causes of the Wealth of Nations.

      London: for A. Strahan; and T. Cadell,, 1793. In three volumes. The seventh edition. 3 volumes, octavo (210 x 125 mm). Contemporary tree calf, richly gilt spines, red and green morocco twin labels (red morocco numberings roundels set on the green labels), yellow edges. Contemporary armorial bookplates of Hugh Parkin, possibly the Hugh Parkin (d. 1838) of Skirsgill Hall, Cumberland. Labels chipped (numbering roundel missing from volume III), a little wear to extremities of spine. A very good clean set. Seventh edition, which reprints the introductions to the third and fourth editions. "Where the political aspects of human rights had taken two centuries to explore, Smith's achievement was to bring the study of economic aspects to the same point in a single work. The Wealth of Nations is not a system, but as a provisional analysis it is completely convincing. The certainty of its criticism and its grasp of human nature have made it the first and greatest classic of modern economic thought" (Printing and the Mind of Man). A very appealing set in a superior contemporary binding.

        Droits de l'homme en réponse a l'attaque de M. Burke sur la Révolution françoise

      Buisson, 1793 - 1792. Due voll. in 8°, pagg. (4), 239, (1); (4), IV, 224; legatura mezza pelle, titoli oro su tassello. Il 1° volume appartiene alla seconda edizione (1793), mentre la risposta, 2° vol., è l'edizione originale. Con note e una nuova prefazione dell'Autore nel primo volume. L'opera forse più famosa del pubblicista e uomo politico anglo - americano che fu anche, durante la Rivoluzione Francese, membro della Convenzione Nazionale. Uomo di libere opinioni e fautore di ogni rivoluzione, da quella americana a quella francese, e per questo allontanato da Londra, a Parigi arrivò ad essere tra i giudici di Luigi XVI. In seguito ebbe un atteggiamento moderato nei confronti della sentenza definitiva circa le sorti del Re; questo spiacque a Robespierre, il quale lo escluse dalla Convenzione e poco dopo lo fece imprigionare. In cattività terminò un altro famoso libretto: "L'età della ragione" e in seguito, per rimostranze del Ministero Americano, ritornò in libertà e riprese il suo seggio nella Convenzione nel 1794. L'anno successivo pubblicò ancora "Dissertazioni sui primi principi del governo" e, a seguito della progressiva diminuzione della sua autorità, dopo la pace di Amiens ritornò negli Stati Uniti dove morì nel 1809. Ottimo stato. Non comune.

        John Hargrave, George, Leek

      Leek, [Stratfordshire]: F. Hilliard, printer, 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.

[xvi], 582pp. London, Stockdale, An integral member of the First Fleet, Hunter was second in command on the Sirius under Arthur Phillip. 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.

        Examen marítimo teórico práctico o tratado de mecánica aplicado a la construcción, conocimiento y manejo de los navíos y demás embarcaciones

      Imprenta Real, Madrid 1793 - LA MECANICA APLICADA A LA NAVEGACIÓN – ESTUPENDA IMPRESIÓN ESPAÑOLA – ILUSTRACIONES; folio; 14 grabados plegados; plena pasta española de época. 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.
