Garrison & Morton 5735.1. The claim that this was the first mention in Europe is challenged in this volume by another correspondent on page 1093.

        Le maire de Nancy met en garde contre les purges de la réaction thermidorienne.

      - 1 lettre autographe signée 5 pages ½ In-folio 13/12/1794 Datée du 23 frimaire an 3. bon Très intéressante lettre du maire démissionnaire de Nancy, Joseph Wulliez, ardent jacobin, au conventionnel Louis Benoit Genevois, envoyé en mission dans le département de la Meurthe (depuis le 17 nov.) afin d'entreprendre une campagne contre les "terroristes". Il se montra un élément efficace de la réaction thermidorienne et donna un "Compte rendu [.] de l'emploi des sommes dépensées pendant sa mission dans les dép. de la Meurthe et de la Moselle". Dans cette longue lettre écrite au moment où il quitte ses fonctions, le maire de Nancy, Joseph Wulliez, qui ne fut en poste que du 8 octobre au 14 décembre 1794, dresse un tableau de la situation et lui prodigue des conseils plus ou moins directifs, redoutant sans doute pour lui-même de terribles accusations. "Tu viens ici, citoyen Représentant, avec l'intention louable de rétablir le calme et la tranquillité dans la cité et de l'assurer sur des bases solides et durables. Tous les citoyens ont les yeux ouverts sur toi ; ils se reposent sur la justice et ton impartialité. Ils se promettent un heureux succès du résultat de tes opérations. Un de tes premiers soins, sans doute, sera d'examiner la composition des autorités constituées. Sous le Régime Démocratique, il faut non seulement que les fonctionnaires publics soient purs et sans reproche, mais il est nécessaire encore qu'ils soient connus, qu'ils soient aimés et estimés de leurs concitoyens [.]. Mais avant tout, il faut que tu saches s'il y a des coupables parmi les fonctionnaires publics actuels ; s'il n'y en a pas ; si toutes les dénonciations faites contre eux, ne sont que des calomnies imaginées pour les perdre ; alors, citoyen, tu gémiras sur la vileté et la corruption des hommes ; la lumière commencera à briller à tes yeux et tu ne tarderas pas à te convaincre que ta mission n'a été provoquée que par la réaction de la malveillance, et que les ennemis du bien public, méconnaissant ton caractère, ne se réjouissent si fort de ton arrivée que parce qu'ils espèrent parvenir à te tromper et obtenir de toi des arrêtés qui favorisent leurs vues perfides [.]".

        Ferishta's History of Dekkan, from the first Muhammedan Conquests: with a continuation from other native writers, of the events in that part of India, to the reduction of its last monarchs by the emperor Aulumgeer Aurungzebe: also, the reigns of his suvccessors in the empire of Hindostan to the present day: and the History of Bengal, from the accession of Aliverdee Khan to the year 1780.

      Shrewsbury: Printed by J. & W. Eddowes for John Stockdale, London, 1794 - 2 volumes, quarto (278 x 217 mm). Late 19th century dark red half morocco for the bookseller William Brown (Edinburgh), gilt lettered and banded spines, marbled sides, top edges gilt, others untrimmed, marbled endpapers. Bindings a little rubbed at the extremities, a couple of corners lightly bumped, scattered foxing and some paper toning but a good tall set. First edition of this translation of one of the most important histories of India, by the late 16th-century Persian historian Muhammad Qasim Hindu Shah, known as Ferishta. The British orientalist Jonathan Scott (1753-1829) had it published at his own expense in his native Shrewsbury. Scott served as an officer with the East India Company and saw action in the First Mahratta War when acting as Persian translator to Major William Popham. "Governor-General Warren Hastings appointed Scott his private Persian translator in 1783, responsible for communications with the native powers judged too diplomatically sensitive to be trusted to an Indian secretary. Hastings also valued Scott's historical investigations which took their cue from Robert Orme's thesis that the reign of Aurangzeb and of his successors was the key epoch of Mughal Indian history. Scott consulted the best native authorities, and amassed materials collected by his brother Captain Richard Scott, and by Lieutenant-Colonel Henri Polier, concluding that a fuller understanding of recent history might be gained from an insight into the history of the Deccan" (ODNB). From the library of the Lords Elphinstone, with their Carberry Tower Library label in both volumes; the most distinguished scion of that house was Mountstuart Elphinstone (1779-1859), administrator in India.

        An Universal System of Natural History, including the Natural History of Man; The Orang-Outang; and whole tribe of Simia; all the known Quadrupeds, Birds, Fishes, and Amphibious Animals; insects, polypees, zoophytes, and animalculae....Vols I-III

      London: Printed for the Proprietor, and sold by Champante and Whitrow, 1794 An extremely scarce hand coloured set of the first 3 volumes in Ebenezer Sibley's major work on the natural world. 14 volumes were eventually published, running in date from 1794 to 1808, and Sibley's name is only mentioned on the decorative title page to Vol I, where the work is titled 'Magazine of Natural History'. Each volume is complete in itself, and the first 3 volumes cover Man, Apes and Quadrupeds, with a lengthy dissertation on the relationship between Man and 'brute animals'. All 3 volumes have contemporary boards with newer spines, which have title labels, gilt lining and blind stamped decoration. The boards have some scuffing and wear to edges and corners, but all the bindings are nicely clean and sound. All have new endpapers. Vol I: Man - frontispiece; decorative title page; letterpress title page; introduction - viii; text pp 1-450 plus index which looks to be missing the final page;19 hand coloured plates. There is a signature to the top of the title pages; a couple of paper tears; occasional marking eg at top margin of frontispiece and title pages, mark to foredge; some paper sections more toned than others; anatomical plates have some splotching; final index page with worm hole. Vol II: Simia; frontispiece; title page; text incl index 420pp with plate list; 19 hand coloured plates. Generally very clean with occasional toning/marking, frontispiece has had repair at some point. Vol III: quadrupeds; title page; frontispiece; text with index 608pp; 16 hand-coloured plates. Very clean, usual toning in places. Vol II is the only one with a plate list and it is complete. The other 2 volumes do not have plate lists. The hand colouring is vibrant with deep colours and the images of the simia in particular are fascinating for the facial features that they have been given. A very rare work. Please ask for additional images if you would like to further assess condition.

"Welches Ansehen und welchen Wert der Atlas von Innerösterreich besaß, zeigt sich auch darin, daß Napoleon bei seinem Aufenthalt in Graz 1797 Kindermann zu sich rufen ließ, um den Auto der Karten, die ihm bei seinem Vorstoß durch Krain und Kärnten durch die Steiermark so großen Nutzen gebracht hatten, kennenzulernen.

Terza edizione non comune, preferita alle precedenti in quanto la più completa e corretta, della più celebre opera del grande naturalista e micologo originario di Coriano in provincia di Rimini, Giovanni Antonio Battara. Il volume contiene nozioni di agronomia, agricoltura, allevamento, viticoltura ma anche nozioni degli usi e costumi dei contadini romagnoli, nozioni di gastronomia, sulla coltivazione del riso ecc. ecc. Dall'indice del primo volume: Sulle qualità delle terre e ce concimi proporzionati. De' Semenzaj e dei Vivaj. Delle Siepi. Della Coltura dei Cannetti. Dei Canepaj. Della maniera di seminar il Lino. Della Coltura del Frumento. Della Coltura del Maiz o sia Fromentone. Della Coltura delle Fave. Della Coltura degli Orti rusticali. Della Coltura dei Risi. Del Piantamento degli Alberi.

Le pp. 172-222 contengono questi due ultimi argomenti. Nacque vicino a Rimini, alla Pedrolara di Coriano, da Domenico Battarra e Giovanna Francesca Fabbri.Entrò nel seminario di Rimini, più per le modeste condizioni della famiglia che per vocazione, dove fu ordinato sacerdote nel 1738. Studiò geometria, fisica e storia naturale seguendo le lezioni del medico, naturalista e archeologo Giovanni Bianchi. Nel 1741 ebbe la cattedra di filosofia nel seminario di Savignano sul Rubicone, dove restò ad insegnare per quattro anni. Incominciò ad interessarsi di scienze naturali, e in particolare di micologia, a cui si appassionò studiando le tavole a colori della "Sylva Fungorum" di Padre Bruno Tozzi, naturalista, ornitologo ed entomologo di cui divenne discepolo. Nel 1748 ebbe la cattedra di filosofia a Rimini, che occupò per sette anni. Nel 1755 pubblicò l'opera "Fungorum agri ariminensis historia", composta da 80 pagine e illustrata con 40 tavole in rame da lui stesso disegnate e incise, dove descrisse 248 specie di funghi. Nel 1757 gli fu assegnata una cattedra di filosofia dal Comune di Rimini e nel 1760 dal locale Seminario. Nel 1778 pubblicò la sua opera più importante, "Pratica agraria", in cui sostenne la necessità di un'agricoltura razionale. Nella stessa opera descrisse con dovizia di particolari le vane osservanze e superstizioni de' contadini romagnuoli (Dialogo XXX), che additò come esempio da non seguire. Per queste pagine, Battarra è riconosciuto come il pioniere della scienza folcloristica italiana. Battarra ha lasciato anche dei sonetti in lingua romagnola.Morì a Rimini l'8 novembre 1789.Il micologo svedese Fries riconobbe nell'opera micologica di Battarra oltre 150 specie e il micologo olandese Persoon gli

        A plan of a new invented patent-piano-forte

      : 1794 : London : Engraved advertisement, half-sheet, image 239 x 370mm; trimmed within platemark; leaf 250 x 400. Fleur-de-lys watermark. Blank margin clipped on left, old folds. : An advertisement for pianos made by Longman and Broderip incorporating William Southwell's inventions. This is the second state of the engraving submitted with Southwell's patent application. The patent incorporated two innovations: captive, wire operated dampers, and an extended range. This type of damper superseded all previous designs and is the ancestor of the modern grand dampers. The range of the standard square piano was extended by more than half an octave in the treble with 8 extra keys (f3-c4) without increasing the length of the instrument. These innovations were patented in 1794 when Southwell moved from Dublin to London and immediately taken up by Longman and Broderip. For this advertisemetn the patent application copper plate was reworked, replacing Southwell's name with Longman & Broderip and the lion and crown of England in place of the Irish harp in the triangular area behind the wrestplank (Michael Cole, The Pianoforte in the Classical Era, 1998, pp. 104-5). A later state of this engraving, used by the firm of Broderip and Wilkinson after 1798, is illustrated by Richard Burnett in The company of pianos (2004) on p. 70.

        A Plan of a New Invented Patent-Piano-Forte. With Additional Keys &c. A New Royal Patent on additional Keys & Manufactur'd by Longman & Broderip No. 26, Cheapside & No. 13 Hay Market: London.

      1794 - engraved advertisement, half-sheet, fleur-de-lys watermark, slightly fraying top edge backed with conservation tape, also present at lower left corner behind small tear beside clipped right margin, three faint vertical fold marks, mounted, very good. An advertisement for the new pianofortes of Longman and Broderip, incorporating the inventions of William Southwell. Southwell moved from Dublin to London in 1794 and immediately submitted a patent application for two significant pianoforte innovations: a new wire-operated damper system and an extended range of over half an octave. James Longman and Francis Broderip were so impressed by the enhanced instrument which Southwell had brought over from Ireland, that, under exclusive contract, they offered to sell the improved instruments under their company name. The copper plate of Southwell's original patent was altered for the subsequent advertisement, Longman & Broderip replacing the inventor's name, and the lion and crown of England replacing the Irish harp in the triangular fretwork behind the instrument's wrestplank. Longman and Broderip were declared bankrupt in 1795, but Broadwood (without permission or fee) immediately employed Southwell's system for extending the keyboard's range and, a decade later, his form of damper, creating, in effect, the earliest form of the piano that we know today.

      - Weimar, Landes-Industrie Comptoir, (1794)-1803, Folio, 182 (plus 12 Doppeltafeln; 32 gefässcolor.) Kupferstichtafeln, Halbledereinband der Zeit; Rücken erneuert, Deckel frisch bezogen; etwas Fingerfleckig; sehr gutes Exemplar. ERSTE AUSGABE! Justus Christian von Loder's (1753-1832) Hauptwerk. Erstklassige Kupferstecher wie J.A. Roux, J.C. Bock, J.B. Hössel, F. Kaiser, J.F. Schrötter schufen die insgesamt 1431 Darstellungen auf den ca. 200 Kupfertafeln. Loders Ziel war es "für alle Fächer der menschlichen Anatomie, die damals besten Abbildungen in ein Werk zu vereinigen, sowie nach eigenen Präparaten diese zu ergänzen, von den 1431 Figuren sind 1122 Copieen und 309 nach Präparaten gefertigte Originalzeichnungen." Choulant widmet dem Loder'schen Sammelwerk 2 Seiten in seiner Geschichte der anatomischen Abbildungen. Dort finden sich auch Hinweise über die Künstler und die von Loder benutzten Vorlagen.

Many of the anatomical discoveries of the late 18th and early 19th century were collected.

        A General Map of the World, or Terraqueouis Globe with all the New Discoveries and Marginal Delineations, Containing the Most Interesting Particulars in the Solar, Starry and Mundane System.

      "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. La terra di Van Diemen o Tasmania è curiosamente attaccata alla terraferma - un errore che molte vecchie mappe avevano corretto molto tempo prima. La Nuova Zelanda orientale è eccezionalmente ben formata. La maggior parte della regione è stata completamente mappata da Cook, anche se molti degli errori cartografici perpetuati da Quiros sono presenti. Poca traccia dell'Antartide o del grande continente meridionale, anche se l'isola di Bouvet appare come ""Sandwich Land"". Incisione in rame, stampata su quattro gradi fogli di carta coeva uniti (due a due), coloritura coeva dei contorni, in ottimo stato di conservazione." An absolutely stunning and monumental double hemisphere wall map of the world by Samuel Dunn dating to 1794. Drawn in London by Thomas Dunn based on earlier cartographic research by J. B. B. D'Anville. Published by Laurie and Whittle as plate nos. 1-2 in the 1797 edition of 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., Laurie & Whittle, London, 1797. Covers the entire world in a double hemisphere projection. The primary map is surrounded on all sides but detailed scientific calculations and descriptions as well as northern and southern hemisphere star charts, a map of the Moon, a Latitude and Longitude Analemma chart, a map of the Solar System, a Mercator projection of the world, an Analemma projection, a seasonal chart, a universal scale chart, and numerous smaller diagrams depicting planets and mathematical systems. All text is in English. This map follows shortly after the explorations of Captain Cook in the Arctic and Pacific Northwest, so the general outline of the continent is known. Asia is exceptionally well mapped reflecting the most recent information available in Europe - especially regarding the explorations of Vitus Bering and Tschirikow in the Siberian Arctic. Notes Macau, Formosa (Tay-oan), numerous silk route cities, the straits of Sin Capura (Singapore), Beijing (Peking), Edo (Tokyo) and Bombay. Australia appears in full as New Holland or Terra Australis. Names numerous points along the coast with associated notes regarding the activities of various explorers. Van Diemen's Land or Tasmania is curiously attached to the mainland - an error that many earlier maps had long ago corrected. Further east New Zealand is exceptionally well formed. Most of the region has been thoroughly mapped by Cook, though several of the cartographic errors perpetuated by Quiros are present. There is little trace of either Antarctica or the Great Southern continent, though Bouvet's Island does appear as 'Sandwich Land.' Very good condition. Four sheets joined.

      Impresa en la Imprenta Real de los Niños Huérfanos, 1794. Unanúe (1755-1833) was a polymath, physician, naturalist, meteorologist, cosmographer, university professor, and founder of the San Fernando Medical School. In his role as cosmographer to the viceroyalty, he produced just five of these guides to Peru (1793-97), each containing standard information on geography, political and religious divisions, political and religious position holders by name, highly important statistics, and a => much-coveted engraved map first created by Andres Baleto in 1792 and engraved by José Vazquez. While a goodly amount of data is the same in each edition of the Guia, annual statistics are not, and when new people were slotted into positions, the new names are given. Text appears on elegantly bordered pages. Binding: Marvelous contemporary sponge-mottled sheep binding, round spine richly gilt by repeated use of a small portion of a roll featuring a fine vinous pattern with fruit or berry.

        Third Congress of the United States: At the first session, begun and held at the city of Philadelphia, in the state of Pennsylvania, on Monday, the second of December, one thousand seven hundred and ninety-three. An Act directing a detachment from the militia of the United States

      [Philadelphia]: [Printed by Childs and Swaine], 1794. First edition. Broadsheet. A very good copy, sharp impressions, minor browning at edges, a few old marginal stitch marks, nick to one corner, small inked numerals at upper margin, probably from prior collation.. 1 sheet ([2] pp.). Approved-May the ninth, 1794 and signed in type: "Go: Washington, President of the United States;" also signed in type, "John Adams, Vice-President," and "Frederick Augustus Muhlenberg, Speaker of the House." "Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America, in Congress assembled, That the President of the United States be, and he is hereby authorized to require of the executives of the several states, to take effectual measures, as soon as may be, to organize, arm and equip, according to law, and hold in readiness to march at a moment's warning, the following proportions, respectively, of eighty thousand effective militia, officers included, to wit:" Thus begins the first section of the act (with a long list of the numerical quotas for troops from each state) for a force capable to quelling a growing rebellion threatening the power of the Federal government. Burdened by Revolutionary War debt assumed from the states to achieve ratification of the Constitution, the Federal government needed revenue, and Alexander Hamilton pushed for a excise tax on whiskey production. It did not go over well. Western farmers saw the tax as an abuse of Federal authority. In 1792, George Washington issued a proclamation against resistance to law, but to little avail. As violence against tax collectors increased, it was soon obvious stronger measures were needed against this first real rebellion to Federal authority, and thus this act was passed to prepare for its suppression should conditions warrant the use of force. In his circular of the 19th of June to the Governors, enclosing a copy of the law, Secretary of War, Henry Knox wrote with Washington's approval: "It is the earnest desire of the President that your Excellency would immediately take the most effectual means that the whole of the militia of Pennsylvania not comprised within the foregoing requisition, be armed and equipped according to law. The people of the United States encreasing rapidly in wealth, population, and importance among the nations, ought not to indulge the expectation of being exempt from those agitations and dangers, which seem inseparable from the human character. But it is our highest duty that we should be in a perfect condition to preserve and defend oureselves against every injury to which we may be liable as a nation. The President therefore hopes for a prompt and universal compliance with the law, as a measure upon which, under the protection of Heaven, our freedom and security may depend." Three months later, a militia force of 12,950 men led by Washington, headed to western Pennsylvania and the rebellion collapsed. There are two issues of this act: Evans 27852 and Shipton & Mooney 47286, the former 2 pages and the latter 1 page, both with few institutional holdings. OCLC show three locations of this edition of two pages: American Antiquarian Society, John Carter Brown Library, and Library Company of Philadelphia, but there is also one at the Library of Congress, which also holds the one page issue, found at two further libraries: Rutgers and Historical Society of Pennsylvania (at LCP).
