CAMBON, J. & D.V. RAMEL DE NOGARET.)
- A Paris, De l'Imprimerie nationale, 1793. With folding tables. (2), 2-130, (8), (139)-189, (190-192), 193-230 (last misnumbered 130) pp. 8vo. Contemporary half calf (a bit worn). Kress B.2517; Goldsmiths 15699 (4to edition); Stourm 222. First edition. Official publication including Cambon's report and the law of 24 August, as well as Nogaret's report. 'Célèbre rapport sur le grand Livre de la dette publique. Le Grand Livre de la dette publique sera le titre unique et fondamental de tous les créanciers de l'état.' (Stourm). The whole idea behind the 'Grand Livre' was to do something about the two main causes of the confusion which prevailed concerning the finances of the state. These two causes were: the excessive amount of assignats in circulation and their consequent depreciation, and the ignorance prevailing as to the actual debt of the country. Cambon proposed to draw up the 'Grand Livre' of the national debt. It was this great measure upon which his fame as financier rests. (See: Palgrave 206-7; see also at length: Historical Dictionary of the French Revolution).Dominique-Vincent Ramel de Nogaret, representative of the Third Estate, was mainly interested in financial questions, voted in favor of the assignats. 'Mais le nom de Ramel-Nogaret demeure surtout attaché au ministère des Finances du Directoire qu'il exerça de janvier 1796 à juillet 1799. C'était une tâche difficile, c'est le moins qu'on puisse dire. L'opinion rentière lui reprocha la débâcle des assignats et la banqueroute des 2/3, alors qu'il fut un excellent ministre: allègement de la dette, refus des expéd … [Click Below for Full Description]

SANTA ANNA [or SANTANA], Joaquim José de.
Lisbon, Na Officina de Simão Thaddeo Ferreira, 1793. 4°, late twentieth-century crimson full Oasis morocco, spine with raised bands in five compartments, gilt letter in second compartment from head, marbled endleaves, text-block edges with contemporary sprinkling. Woodcut Portuguese royal arms on title page. Typographical headpieces. Crisp and clean. In fine condition. Early signature effaced from lower margin of title page. viii, 279 pp., 3 folding engraved plates. *** FIRST and ONLY EDITION of this textbook on the anatomy and diseases of the eye. Santa Anna was the first Portuguese to specialize in ophthalmology, and he raised that branch of medicine to a level previously unknown in his country. He acknowledges (pp. vii-viii) that the section of the Elementos on anatomy and physiology is a translation of Deshais-Gendron's Traité des maladies des yeux, 1770, but states that he made numerous corrections based on his own experience: "Aqui forão necessarias hum maior número de emendas, tanto em Anatomia, como em Fysica." Likewise the section on pathology and therapy is a translation from Plenck's Doctrina de morbis oculorum, 1777, but has numerous corrections based on Santa Anna's experience. The first folding plate shows a surgeon and an assistant performing a cataract operation, while a dog sleeps peacefully behind the surgeon's chair. It is signed by Silva as artist and Queiroz as engraver. Gregorio Francisco de Queiroz (1768-1845) was one of the most skillful and most creative Portuguese engravers of any century, and produced an enormous oeuvre (Soares, História da gravur … [Click Below for Full Description]

STEELE, Richard.
York: G. Peacock, 1793. Quarto, 3 folding plates, contemporary (?original) marbled boards, calf spine renewed. A singular work written and published at the cusp of the fashion for exotics, which provides a most interesting overview of the state of play in England in the early 1790s. Richard Steele, a Yorkshire gardener who lived and worked around Thirsk, wrote the work as "an attempt to aid in the management of that most elegantly-refined and fascinating department of the Garden, where the prodigious variety of rare plants that have been introduced into this kingdom, from the hot regions of the terraqueous globe, are deposited...".What is immediately noticeable is that while there are established collections from the East and West Indies, and while British gardens were beginning to have really substantial collections of Cape plants, there is still only a handful of Australian plants available for cultivation. Published in the same year as Smith's Botany, this work describes six Australian plants, all apparently collected before the First Fleet era. The Eucalyptus obliqua noticed by Steele, for example, was the first major plant to be routinely noticed as growing in England, and is known to have been collected in Tasmania by Furneaux in 1774 and Cook in 1777, being first figured in France in 1788. Thus, while Steele's work includes notes on how best to grow each species, most of the notes on Australian plants display some uncertainty, as with the entry on the eucalpyt: "I cannot speak with certainty as to the propagation of this plant; but most of the South Sea woody plants … [Click Below for Full Description]
