VIRGILIO
In aedibus Palatinis, typis Bodonianis, Parma, 1793. 2 voll. in-folio gr., Legatura coeva in cartone marmorizzato. Bell?esemplare, a pieni margini con le barbe reso ancora più prezioso dal nitore della carta e sopratutto per il carattere genuino della copertina mai restaurata. Magnifica edizione che è, a ragione, considerata come ?una delle migliori uscite dai torchi del celebre stampatore (Mambelli). Di questo libro, forse il più bello dal punto di vista tipografico, furono tirati 178 esemplari in tutto; l?edizione fu commissionata dall?amico Josè Maria de Azara che aveva già finanziato l?Orazio uscito due anni prima. La prefazione è stampata in un elegante carattere corsivo, mentre il testo è in maiuscolo e minuscolo tondo. Contiene le Bucoliche, le Georgiche, l?Eneide, i Poemata quae sub Virgilii nomine circumferuntur, ed infine la Vita di V. di T.C. Donato. Senza dubbio uno dei capolavori del Bodoni, universalmente ammirato, che suscitò l?invidia e lo stupore del Didot: «Stupenda edizione. Aveva ben ragione di preoccuparsi il Didot della concorenza editoriale bodoniana.» (De Lama II, 81). Esemplare ottimo, salvo due fori di tarlo non restaurati ai dei primi dieci fogli nel secondo volume. Mambelli 465; Brooks 486; Giani 33; Brunet V 1294; Graesse VII 344. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

(French Revoultion)
[London]: Printed at the Minerva Office, for William Lane, London, and sold wholesale. And retail by E[lizabeth]. Harlow; Edwards; Shepherd and Reynolds; Wesley; Symonds; Richardson; and all other booksellers, [1793]. Large woodcut illustration. Folio (19 7/8 x 14 7/8 inches). "...down came the axe; the head was off in a moment..." A large illustrated broadside account of the execution of Louis XVI, sympathetic to the French king and printed by the London populist printer William Lane with the intent of shoring up support in England for war with France, and for pre-empting anti-monarchist violence among the English masses. The several issues of this broadside feature one of two images: one showing a man being strapped to a board in preparation for execution, while another man lies in the guillotine; and the present, larger image which is more evocative of the execution of Louis XVI, showing a man lying in the guillotine just before the blade is dropped by the executioner, with two attendants looking on. The text consists of the articles and orders of the National Convention which decree the king's exectution; an account, heavy on pathos, of the last hours of Louis life', including a sensationalist description of the atmosphere in Paris and of the execution itself. Aside from the differing illustrations, variations within the issues pertain to the imprint and the price, which Lane repeatedly lowered in hopes of spreading the account as widely as possible. The broadside is not included in Blakey's bibliography of the Minerva press. Of the present (second?) issue, priced three … [Click Below for Full Description]

Wollstonecraft, Mary:
Schnepfenthal, Verl. der Erziehungsanstalt, 1793-94 (2 Bände). außerordentlich seltene erste deutsche Ausgabe des im Vorjahr unter dem Titel "A vindication of the rights of woman" in London erschienenen politischen Hauptwerks der Vorkämpferin der Frauenemanzipation: "Its chief object was to show that women were not the playthings of men but ought to be their equal partners, which they could be only if they were educated in the same way" (PMM). Mary Wollstonecraft (1759-1797) war bekannt mit Georg Forster und Wilhelm von Humboldt und verheiratet mit dem englischen Frühsozialisten und ersten Systematiker des Anarchismus William Godwin (1756-1836). Sie gilt mit ihrem Werk als eine der bedeutendsten Wegbereiterinnen für die Gleichberechtigung der Frau. Sie fordert die konsequente Umsetzung der Grundsätze der französischen Revolution und deren Geltung auch für Frauen. Herausgeber der deutschen Ausgabe war der Pädagoge Christian Gotthilf Salzmann (ADB XXX, 293-297), der es von seinem Schwiegersohn G.F.C. Weissenborn übersetzen ließ. STAMMHAMMER 1, 263; CARTER/MUIR Nr. 242. - das Exlibris in Band 2 stammt von Friedrich Wilhelm Rathgen (1862-1942), dem berühmten Chemiker und Begründer der Wissenschaft der Konservierung von archäologischen Funden; wichtige Städte seiner Biographie hat er im Exlibris darstellen lassen: Eckernförde (Geburtsort), Lübeck (Gymnasium und Abitur) und Marburg (Promotion).

Charles Macklin
1793. A nice clean copy. Bound in marbled calf leather. Rebacked with the original leather. First edition thus. Charles Macklin (1690 -1797) was an actor and dramatist. He was one of the most distinguished actors of his day, equally in tragedy and comedy. He gained his greatest fame in the role of Shylock in The Merchant of Venice. He wrote many plays, including Love a la Mode (1759), The School for Husbands, or The Married Libertine (1761), and The Man of the World (1781). In 1735 Macklin quarrelled with a fellow actor named Hallam and accidentally killed the man by thrusting his cane through Hallam's eye. He was tried for murder, conducted his own defence, and won an acquittal. Samuel Rogers, 1763 - 1855, was an English banker and poet, during his lifetime one of the most celebrated, although his fame has long since been eclipsed by his Romantic colleagues and friends Wordsworth, Coleridge and Byron. His recollections of these and other friends such as Charles James Fox are key sources for information about London artistic and literary life, with which he was intimate, and which he used his wealth to support. Rogers held various honorary positions: he was one of the trustees of the National Gallery; and he served on a commission to inquire into the management of the British Museum, and on another for the rebuilding of the Houses of Parliament. John Henry Johnstone, 1749 - 1828, was an actor and singer. As information from the Oxford Dictionary of National Biography tells us, Johnstone was originally articled to a Dublin attorney but later moved to London to join the caval … [Click Below for Full Description]

It has passed through some 30 editions, half of which appeared after Burn's death.

(SILK PRINTING)
1793. Engraved vignette on title signed by Hoppe & two engraved vignettes by Christian Gottlieb Geyser serving as head- & tail-pieces to the poem. Four leaves printed on pale yellow-white silk. 4to (257 x 205 mm.), cont. pale pink silk over boards (a bit soiled), black floral design round sides, pale blue silk paste-down endpapers. Leipzig: "Gedrukt bey Wilhelm Gottlob Sommer," [1793].Apparently unique, this poem pays homage to the duchess Sophie Wilhelmine von Schönaich-Carolath (1764-95), for her visit to the small village of Rochsburg in Saxony. She was a member of the family which owned the famous Schloss Rochsburg situated above the village. It is remarkable that this small village was able to plan and have printed this quite luxurious and attractive work.The front paste-down has a mounted piece of paper with the contemporary inscription "Dies Buch gehört Sophie Wilhelmine Gräfin von Schönburg Rochsburg gebohrne Prinzess von Carolath Schönaich Rochsburg den 5 September 1793." Three contemporary silhouette portraits (of the duchess?) loosely laid-in.In fine condition. Not in WorldCat.

Collated complete. Bryan Edwards, FRS (May 21, 1743 - July 15 or 16, 1800) was an English politician and historian born in Westbury, Wiltshire.

HENRY, Matthew
1793. I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I have many more photos on my website...just ask. "[Henry's] exposition is generally clear and intelligible...It is agreeable to scripture...It gives a sufficient explication of the passages which require explaining. It is deep, penetrating farther than most other comments do. It does not entertain with vain speculations, but is practical throughout teaching us how to worship God." - John Wesley on Matthew Henry's Commentary A rare first edition Family Bible edited with nonconformist commentary by Matthew Henry. This incredible three-volume Bible includes over 100 full-page engravings depicting Bible stories, important figures, and scenes from both the Old and New Testament. Matthew Henry is known for his exhaustive verse-by-verse commentary of the entire Bible. In fact, this commentary was one of the most important of the 17th-century. Famous evangelical preachers such as George Whitefield, John Wesley, and Charles Spurgeon were known to use and reference this commentary. Spurgeon says, "Every minister ought to read it entirely and carefully through once at least.". [Attributes: First Edition]

London: Printed by Stephen Couchman, for W. Curtis; [last volume] for T. Curtis, 1793-1801.. Volumes I-XV bound in four. 8vo. Later tan quarter sheep over marbled boards, spines with raised bands, twin gilt lettered red labels. 586 (of 588) finely engraved plates, all but one with excellent contemporary hand colouring plus an additional hand coloured plate from a different source bound in adjacent to no. 57, each plate with a leaf of descriptive letterpress text (several leaves in a few instances), one plate folding and the others full page, the two missing plates illustrating the "Three-Coloured" and "Red-Blue" Ixias (nos. 381 and 410), 8 plates trimmed to the outline of the image and mounted on a different paper, another plate with just the margins trimmed and remounted. Some light rubbing and fading to the bindings, with very much the odd exception, a lovely clean set. A famed botanist, Curtis' other notable published work was his "Flora Londonensis", a record of the flowers native to the metropolis and its environs. Published between 1777 and 1798, the "Flora's" importance cannot be understated, however it was not a commercial success. It has been suggested that this was partly due to the price, the irregularity with which the parts were issued and the narrow geographical scope of the work. On the other hand, his "Botanical Magazine" was hugely successful, being much more accessible in terms of size, price and range of subjects. The plates, though smaller than those of the "Flora", are no less beautiful and were principally designed by two of the great botanical illust … [Click Below for Full Description]

Bayly, who also created the singularly published maps, a new map of Poland, a new map of the West Indies, and a new world map. William Fordyce Mavor was a compiler of educational works, who occasionally wrote under the pseudonym William Frederick Martyn. In 1808 Mavor was elected mayor of Woodstock, and served the office ten times. However his success came from his work on educational books, many of which, particularly 'The English Spelling Book,' 1801, passed through numerous editions. He also invented a system of shorthand, which he explained in a treatise entitled 'Universal Stenography'. With a red and black title page. Volume two of the original two, focusing on Europe and the European islands. CONDITION In contemporary calf binding. Externally, somewhat rubbed with wear to the boards and extremities.

Upper left corners of pages embossed with small circle containing Prince of Wales feathers and words 'SUPERFINE SATIN'. In good condition, on lightly aged paper. Preserved in a mylar L-sleeve with lig-free backing board. Highly curious early 19th-century manuscript account of an earthquake that either never happened, or has been greatly exaggerated herein. We think it might be completely fictional. According to the present MS, the earthquake -- which is described with great flourish -- occurred in Oporto (Porto), Portugal, on 2 May 1793. The bespoke earthquake is not listed in Robert A. Ganse's "Catalog of Significant Earthquakes 2000 BC - 1979, Including Quantitative Casualties and Damages" (Boulder: World Data Center for Solid Earth Geophysics, NOAA, 1981. NB: among the criteria of inclusion in this extraordinary catalogue are at least 10 deaths as a result of the earthquake and/or tsunami; moderate damage, i.e. $1 million or greater in 1979 dollars; or magnitude 7.5 or greater).

Letter written by Pennsylvania physician and Signer of the Declaration of Independence Benjamin Rush to fellow physician Valentine Seaman discussing Dr. Seaman's recent work on mineral waters and other medical discourses. Seaman was the first doctor in America to teach clinical surgery, and was likewise the first to introduce vaccination, vaccinating his own children against the chicken pox.Benjamin Rush was a delegate to the Continental Congress and signed the Declaration of Independence; he later served as surgeon general for the Middle Department of the Continental Army, though he resigned in outrage over the disorganization and corruption in army hospitals. Rush established several medical facilities in Philadelphia, including the College of Physicians in 1787. "Writing prolifically over nearly half a century, Rush was the first American physician to become widely known at home and abroad. More than any other physician, Rush established the reputation of Philadelphia as a center for medical training...His drive to understand mental illness and render the treatment of mental patients more humane earned Rush the title 'father of American psychiatry'" - ANB.In his letter Rush writes:"Your analysis of the mineral waters at Saratoga is ingenious, and calculated to be useful.

Matthew HENRY
London: W and J Stratford, 1793. Condition: Very good +. Folio, 3 volumes in 2. A very nice, clean set of this large folio set of Henry's famous commentary on the bible, which covered both the Old and New Testaments. Includes around 100 large engraved plates, depicting scenes from the bible. Bound in contemporary full brown calf with contemporary spine labels (which have some loss), there appears to have been some refreshing to the corners, and thus likely the joints and hinges, as well, probably in the 19th century. Still, a very clean and handsome set, overall certainly very good or better. Contemporary ownership signature (dated 1800) on the front free endpaper of each volume. This popular commentary was published in many forms and sizes, but this set is desirable for its large-scale engravings, and while often found with library markings and various stains or other defects, this is a choice example. While overseas shipping is possible, it will be very expensive.

Robert Watson; William Thomson
1793. Complete in two volumes. This is the complete work of this history, with the original four books by Robert Watson and the continuation of two books by William Thomson. Watson's work was first published in 1777 with Thomson's continuation completing the work first issued in 1783. Robert Watson was a Scottish minister and academic. He was Principal of St Salvator's College in St Andrews. Horace Walpole praised his work as a historian and in particular his historical work on Philip II. William Thomson was also a Scottish minister, historian and miscellaneous writer. His bibliography is extensive with many historical and travel works. His reputation as a writer was made with this continuation of Watson's work on Philip III. Philip III of Spain was king of both Spain and Portugal. He was a Hapsburg and had a largely negative political reputation abroad. He ruled the Spanish Empire at its height and brought Spain into the Thirty Years' War. CONDITION In full calf bindings. Externally, very smart with some minor rubbing to the head and tail of spine as well as to raised bands. Some minor rubbing to joints also. Bookplate of John Colby with the Colby family crest to front pastedown of both volumes. Internally, both volumes are firmly bound. Small section from the top margin of both title pages removed neatly, possibly to remove a prior owner's signature. Pages are generally bright with some slight age toning to edges and the odd spot throughout. Overall Condition: Very Good Indeed.

Robert Watson; William Thomson
London: G.G.J and J Robinson, 1793. Complete in two volumes. This is the complete work of this history, with the original four books by Robert Watson and the continuation of two books by William Thomson. Watson's work was first published in 1777 with Thomson's continuation completing the work first issued in 1783. Robert Watson was a Scottish minister and academic. He was Principal of St Salvator's College in St Andrews. Horace Walpole praised his work as a historian and in particular his historical work on Philip II. William Thomson was also a Scottish minister, historian and miscellaneous writer. His bibliography is extensive with many historical and travel works. His reputation as a writer was made with this continuation of Watson's work on Philip III. Philip III of Spain was king of both Spain and Portugal. He was a Hapsburg and had a largely negative political reputation abroad. He ruled the Spanish Empire at its height and brought Spain into the Thirty Years' War. CONDITION In full calf bindings. Externally, very smart with some minor rubbing to the head and tail of spine as well as to raised bands. Some minor rubbing to joints also. Bookplate of John Colby with the Colby family crest to front pastedown of both volumes. Internally, both volumes are firmly bound. Small section from the top margin of both title pages removed neatly, possibly to remove a prior owner's signature. Pages are generally bright with some slight age toning to edges and the odd spot throughout. Overall Condition: Very Good Indeed.

Jedidiah Morse
Isaiah Thomas, Ebenezer T. Andrews, Boston, 1793. Full leather binding. Married set, as faded spine labels are different color for each volume. Volume I has the front board detached and a crack along the spine, though the text block appears to holding well. Volume II is much more solidly bound. Scuffing to the covers on both volumes. All maps are present. Many are in remarkable condition. A few have some minor issues with awkward fold lines (most of these maps are larger folding) and a few closed tears or edge wear. Happy to check on condition of any specific map or provide more detail or pics for specific maps upon request. All in all, a nice set of a work usually much more worn and often incomplete in form or another. The map District of Maine, by Osgood Carleton, is the first separate map of Maine not part of a regional map. Joseph Purcell's map of the Southeast shows the "Country of Frankland", the only appearance of this designation known on a map (easily worth 2/3 the value of the set). Scarce example in this completeness and condition. Very SCARCE title to be found COMPLETE with all 10 maps! Not Ex-Lib. I've done my best to describe the books, but if you have additional questions, please don't hesitate to send me an e-mail.

[William Frederick Martyn] William Fordyce Mavor
London: Harrison and Co, 1793. With thirteen engraved plates of views, including a frontispiece and thirteen folding maps. Maps are by 18th century geographer J. Bayly, who also created the singularly published maps, a new map of Poland, a new map of the West Indies, and a new world map. William Fordyce Mavor was a compiler of educational works, who occasionally wrote under the pseudonym William Frederick Martyn. In 1808 Mavor was elected mayor of Woodstock, and served the office ten times. However his success came from his work on educational books, many of which, particularly 'The English Spelling Book,' 1801, passed through numerous editions. He also invented a system of shorthand, which he explained in a treatise entitled 'Universal Stenography'. With a red and black title page. Volume two of the original two, focusing on Europe and the European islands. CONDITION In contemporary calf binding. Externally, somewhat rubbed with wear to the boards and extremities. Shelfwear to the head and tail of spine. Front board is held by the cords only and rear joint is starting. Copperplate ink inscriptions to the endpapers. Internally, generally firmly bound, aside from the first few leaves working loose. Bright and clean throughout, aside from the odd handling mark. Overall Condition: Good.

Charles Macklin
J Bell, 1793. A nice clean copy. Bound in marbled calf leather. Rebacked with the original leather. First edition thus. Charles Macklin (1690 -1797) was an actor and dramatist. He was one of the most distinguished actors of his day, equally in tragedy and comedy. He gained his greatest fame in the role of Shylock in The Merchant of Venice. He wrote many plays, including Love a la Mode (1759), The School for Husbands, or The Married Libertine (1761), and The Man of the World (1781). In 1735 Macklin quarrelled with a fellow actor named Hallam and accidentally killed the man by thrusting his cane through Hallam's eye. He was tried for murder, conducted his own defence, and won an acquittal. Samuel Rogers, 1763 - 1855, was an English banker and poet, during his lifetime one of the most celebrated, although his fame has long since been eclipsed by his Romantic colleagues and friends Wordsworth, Coleridge and Byron. His recollections of these and other friends such as Charles James Fox are key sources for information about London artistic and literary life, with which he was intimate, and which he used his wealth to support. Rogers held various honorary positions: he was one of the trustees of the National Gallery; and he served on a commission to inquire into the management of the British Museum, and on another for the rebuilding of the Houses of Parliament. John Henry Johnstone, 1749 - 1828, was an actor and singer. As information from the Oxford Dictionary of National Biography tells us, Johnstone was originally articled to a Dublin attorney but later moved to London to join t … [Click Below for Full Description]
