SENHOUSE, Sir Joseph.
[?Whitehaven, Ann Dunn, 1794. 4to (239 × 190 mm), pp. [4], the final leaf blank; unbound. Sole edition, very rare. The suggestion that the printer of this occasional piece was Ann Dunn of Whitehaven is based upon the existence of four four-page poetical pamphlets of apparently the same date, of very similar appearance and with the same or similar watermarks. These appear in ESTC as Chloe in Summer ['Whitehaven?: printed by Ann Dunn?, 1797?']; Paddy in Extasy 'A. Dunn, printer, Whitehaven' [1797?]; A Song made by Sir Joseph Senhouse, on the 27th of November 1794, being the Birth Day of his Nephew Humphrey Senhouse Junior of Netherhall, when he attained to the Age of Twenty One Years ['London? 1794?']; and The Wish ['Whitehaven?: printed by Ann Dunn?, 1795?']. Only one of these has the printer's name and place of printing, and only one gives an author's name, but they point to all four having been written either by Sir Joseph Senhouse or someone in his immediate circle and printed by Ann Dunn in Whitehaven, who was responsible for producing a number of books in the 1790s.

LAURIE Robert & Whittle James
1794. "Interessante mappa su quattro fogli dell'Africa, che mostra la totale scarsa conoscenza europea del continente alla fine del XVIII secolo. La mappa riflette l'approccio dell'Illuminismo alla cartografia, nella misura in cui l'autore sceglie di rappresentare solo la conoscenza geografica ben nota agli europei. Gran parte dell'interno del continente è lasciato vuoto, o riempito solo con i nomi di popoli e tribù che si pensa occupino l'area. Rimangono alcune imprecisioni, come le presunte fonti del Nilo. Mappa tratta dal ""Kitchin's General Atlas, describing the Whole Universe"" di Thomas Kitchin, una raccolta contenente alcune tra le mappe più accurate esistenti, realizzate con la massima precisione, e integrata dalla precedente edizione di D'Anville e Robert con i lavori di molti altri eminenti geografi. L'atlante, pubblicato Laurie & Whittle a Londra nel 1797, raccoglie 62 incisioni, che comprendono 37 mappe. Mappa su due fogli di 1240x530 mm. Acquaforte, coloritura coeva dei contorni, in ottimo stato di conservazione." "An extremely impressive wall map of Africa, displaying the sheer lack of European knowledge of the continent at the end of the 18th century. The map reflects the Enlightenment approach to cartography, insofar as it attempts to render only geographic knowledge that is well known to Europeans. Much of the interior of the continent is left blank, or filled only broadly with the names of peoples and tribes thought to occupy the area. Some inaccuracies remain, as with the supposed sources of the Nile River. Map taken from ""Kitchin's General Atlas, descri … [Click Below for Full Description]

It is now in the British Museum" (Fletcher, English Book Collectors, p. 299). This is only the third English monograph on an illuminated manuscript.

AMOS (William)
London: Printed for G. G. and J. Robinson, 1794. First edition, 4to (285 x 220 mm), xvi, 244pp., with half-title, 9 folding engraved plates, the Lawes stamp at head of title, orig. boards scuffed, cloth reback, uncut. William Amos (c.1745–1825), Lincolnshire farmer and Agriculturalist writer. Amos's interest in new agricultural practices led him to undertake a series of crop trials from 1783 onwards, and these convinced him of the superiority of seed-drilling over the traditional broadcast method of sowing. As early as 1787 he was developing his own version of a drill-plough and he announced plans in that year for a book describing it; but his employer's death in 1788 and his subsequent move to Brothertoft in Lincolnshire as bailiff to Major John Cartwright (political reformer) delayed this project. While acting as bailiff and later as estate steward to Cartwright, Amos conducted further trials on his own farm as well as Cartwright's. Cartwright combined an active political career with a keen interest in agricultural improvement, and the collaboration between the two men over a period of fifteen years or so proved beneficial to both. It also brought Amos into contact with their close neighbour Sir Joseph Banks, who later described Amos as 'an honest man and an ingenious one', and with the agriculturist Arthur Young, who visited Cartwright's farm, saw some of Amos's inventions and remained in correspondence with him, obtaining a number of submissions from Amos for publication in his Annals of Agriculture. It was during this period of his life that Amos published his two … [Click Below for Full Description]

LEBRUN, Jean Baptiste Pierre
1794. Two folding engraved plates. 30 pp. 8vo (200 x 128 mm.), self-bound in two quires, stitched. Paris: Didot jeune, An III [1794/95]. First and only edition of one of Lebrun's rare polemical pamphlets on the organization of the Louvre. Lebrun (1748-1813), the great Parisian art dealer and leading connoisseur of Dutch and Flemish art, played an outsized role in the creation of the Louvre. He was essential in the compilation of desiderata lists for the French confiscations of art in conquered territories throughout Europe. Then, once the artworks arrived in Paris, Lebrun was charged with their cataloguing and integration. In 1797, Lebrun was named commissaire expert of the Musée central, but he still sought to leave a larger imprint on the nascent national museum. Charlotte Guichard writes that Lebrun's contribution to the creation of the Louvre remains underappreciated - calling him the "eye of the Louvre" - and that historians have focused too much on Baron Denon, who was appointed museum director in 1802. Beginning in 1793, Lebrun launched a series of treatises regarding the arts and the values a great national museum should maintain. The present work presents his vision for the rooms of the Louvre and their organization. He even elaborates with precise measurements and the arrangement of specific genres of art. Of particular interest is Lebrun's focus on the conservation of paintings. The two plates illustrate two of Lebrun's proposals for the design of the museum's entrance. In very good condition. A fascinating museological treatise by a renowned art dealer. ? D. Spe … [Click Below for Full Description]

1794. "Una mappa assolutamente straordinaria e monumentale del mondo, rappresentato con la classica proiezione a doppio emisfero. Firmata da Samuel Dunn e datata 1794, la carta è basata sulla precedente ricerca cartografica di J. B. D'Anville. Pubblicata da Laurie e Whittle nell'edizione del "Thomas Kitchin's General Atlas, describing the Whole Universe: being a complete collection of the most approved maps extant; corrected with the greatest care, and augmented from the last edition of D'Anville and Robert with many improvements by other eminent geographers, engraved on Sixty-Two plates, comprising Thirty Seven maps", stampato a Londra nel 1797. La mappa primaria è circondata in tutti i lati, da calcoli e descrizioni scientifiche dettagliate, nonché le tabelle degli stelle dell'emisfero settentrionale e meridionale, una mappa della Luna, un diagramma raffigurante latitudine e longitudine, una mappa del Sistema Solare e una proiezione mercatoriona del mondo. Tutto il testo è in inglese. Questa mappa segue poco dopo le esplorazioni del capitano Cook nell'Artico e nel Pacifico nordoccidentale, per cui è conosciuto il profilo generale del continente. L'Asia è particolarmente ben mappata, riflettendo le più recenti informazioni disponibili in Europa - soprattutto per quanto riguarda le esplorazioni di Vitus Bering e Tschirikow nell'Articolo siberiano. L'Australia appare completamente come "New Holland o Terra Australis". Nomi numerosi punti lungo la costa con appunti associati alle attività di vari esploratori.

Andrew Ewing, Revolutionary War Veteran and
1794. Early Davidson County, when still a Territory South of Ohio (now Nashville, Tennessee) Court of Pleas & Sessions printed document, filled-in. Signed by Andrew Ewing, Revolutionary War Veteran and the first County Court Clerk for the Cumberland Territory. Dated 1794. Nice document, some separation along the fold lines with one section nearly detached. Later tape repairs. Housed inside a flexible sleeve. Removable but I left it in there for photographic purposes. The office of Court Clerk was created in 1780 by the Cumberland Compact, the original articles of agreement signed by settlers who established Fort Nashborough. Andrew Ewing, a Revolutionary War veteran born in Pennsylvania, and who arrived in 1780 with John Donelson, was appointed as the first County Court Clerk for the Cumberland Territory. Ewing was reappointed in 1783 when Davidson County, North Carolina was established. During his tenure he set the precedence for transcribing the county's earliest legal proceedings, recording of all land deeds and transactions, wills, marriages, births, and deaths in the territory. He even transcribed some of Founder James Robertson's state documents. When Tennessee became a state in 1796, Ewing remained as County Court Clerk. He held the position until his death in 1813.

LEBRUN, Jean Baptiste Pierre
1794. Two folding engraved plates. 30 pp. 8vo (200 x 128 mm.), self-bound in two quires, stitched. Paris: Didot jeune, An III [1794/95].First and only edition of one of Lebrun's rare polemical pamphlets on the organization of the Louvre. Lebrun (1748-1813), the great Parisian art dealer and leading connoisseur of Dutch and Flemish art, played an outsized role in the creation of the Louvre. He was essential in the compilation of desiderata lists for the French confiscations of art in conquered territories throughout Europe. Then, once the artworks arrived in Paris, Lebrun was charged with their cataloguing and integration. In 1797, Lebrun was named commissaire expert of the Musée central, but he still sought to leave a larger imprint on the nascent national museum. Charlotte Guichard writes that Lebrun's contribution to the creation of the Louvre remains underappreciated - calling him the "eye of the Louvre" - and that historians have focused too much on Baron Denon, who was appointed museum director in 1802.Beginning in 1793, Lebrun launched a series of treatises regarding the arts and the values a great national museum should maintain. The present work presents his vision for the rooms of the Louvre and their organization. He even elaborates with precise measurements and the arrangement of specific genres of art. Of particular interest is Lebrun's focus on the conservation of paintings. The two plates illustrate two of Lebrun's proposals for the design of the museum's entrance.In very good condition. A fascinating museological treatise by a renowned ar … [Click Below for Full Description]

Sabin 21901. Ragatz: p. 165. Griffin 2796. ESTC T136756. Item #43145 "A classic in British Caribbean literature and probably the most famous work in the field. Standard for over a century, and still in many respects the best book on the subject up to the close of the 18th century," (Ragatz: British Caribbean History, p. 165). Edwards was a wealthy and successful Caribbean planter, merchant, and banker, and this work reflects that point of view as he argues for free trade with the United States, local autonomy, and the continuation but regulation of slavery. A valuable work for portraying conditions in the period between the conclusion of the American Revolution and the halt to trafficking in slaves.
