[MANUSCRIPT - PHARMACOLOGY]. PUYENBROUCK[?], Eugene[?].
16, [17-38], [7 blank], [1], [1 blank] ll., written on both sides.A manuscript collection of 90 numbered and about 20 unnumbered recipes, some for medicines, others for foods, drinks and pigments. It includes tobacco, snuff, chocolate, brandy, liqueurs and other alcoholic drinks, fruit syrups, soups, teas and preparations of herbs and spices. The title-page indicates that they (apparently the prepared goods rather than the recipes) belonged to a merchant at Bruges. It provides a fascinating window into the trade in medicines, culinary preparations and pigments in Bruges under the French Republic (1794-1804). The 90 numbered entries end on the recto of leaf 26, but the 20 or so entries that follow to the verso of leaf 34 were probably written immediately or at least soon after, including most of the pigment recipes. At some later date further recipes were added in pencil on leaves 35 to 38. At an unknown date someone began to use the manuscript from the other side, writing in brown ink, but used only two pages, providing recipes for glue and beer.With some owner's inscriptions. The fore-edge has been trimmed, occasionally just touching the text, but with no significant loss, very slightly browned and with an occasional marginal defect, but generally in good condition. The spine of the wrapper is damaged and repaired, and some of the sewing has come loose.

The views depict cities, mansions, castles and ruins along the Rhine from Mainz to Cologne, mostly set in beautiful landscapes, often with ships (including at least two steamers) and people.The original 80 plates were published in Christian August Fischer's Neuester Wegweiser für die Rheinreise (1827), but were also sold individually. Fischer's Wegweiser was published again in the same year with 104 plates and available coloured as well as uncoloured. Another set called Vues du Rhin with 104 plates (erroneously catalogued as 35) is included in the Bobins collection, described as ca. 1840. All of these are now very rare.With an owner's inscription on the flyleaf. The letterpress leaves and some of the plates slightly browned, 1 plate with a marginal tear repaired (not approaching the image), 1 plate detached.l KVK (1 copy); Schmitt 42 (cf. also 41 & 72); cf.

Milton (John). Paradise Lost. 1794. 1st Edition Thus. Milton (John). Paradise Lost: A Poem, in Twelve Books, printed for J. & H. Richter, London. 1794. 1st (and only subscription) Edition Thus. From the private library of the late Richard Adams, celebrated author of Watership Down. This being his own personal copy. Richard Adams would read Paradise Lost almost every day to prepare himself for writing (see below). Adams would also read Paradise Lost to (and embarrass) his children (see below). Impeccable provenance (purchased by myself from the sale of his library by his daughters) and with Richard Adams bookplate pasted to the front inner board. In Richard Adams obituary within the Independent newspaper of 29 December 2016 (independent.co.uk/news/richard-adams-author-of-the-bestselling-novel-watership-down-a7498616.html), it is stated that, 'His writing method remained the same: he wrote in longhand on legal pads, revising constantly and producing a maximum of 1,000 words a day. Each day he prepared by reading aloud from John Milton's Paradise Lost, Edmund Spenser's The Faerie Queene or Marcel Proust in translation'. Richard Adams clearly enjoyed reading Paradise Lost as can be seen from the state of this well-loved copy (see below). Discussing Richard Adams' love of literature, in 2017, his daughter, Juliet Johnson, stated that 'When my sister and I were children, he would often bring us home a book full of pictures and stories, and he read to us constantly - The Hobbit, Paradise Lost, Moonfleet.... He never quite succeeded in imparting to us his own overpowering love of p … [Click Below for Full Description]

JEFFERYS-- THOMAS
CURAÇAO, W.I.C. UITVALSBASIS VOOR HANDEL EN KAAPVAART "Curaçao, from the originals of Gerard van Keulen"?. Kopergravure vervaardigd door Thomas Jefferys uitgegeven door Laurie & Whittle te Londen 1794. Later met de hand gekleurd. Afm. 46,2 x 61,5 cm. Kaart van Curaço, met rechts een inzet van een plattegrond van Fort Amsterdam gelegen aan de Sint Annabaai. Rechtsboven een viertal kustprofielen van het eiland gezien vanuit verschillende richtingen. Linksonder schaalstokken in Sea Leagues en Dutch miles. Aangegeven zijn ook de plantages, zoutpannen, bronnen en vegetatie. Deze kaart verscheen in "The West-India Atlas"? met 41 kaarten en 27 pagina's tekst. Jefferys was een van de belangrijkste Engelse uitgevers van kaarten in de 18de eeuw. Hij vervaardigde kaarten van de gehele wereld, maar zijn beste werk is van Noord-Amerika en West-Indië. Hij begon zijn carrière in de kaarten handel in de vroege jaren 1730, hij was werkzaam als graveur voor verschillende Londense uitgevers en begon uiteindelijk zijn eigen winkel. In 1746 werd hij benoemd tot geograaf van de Prince of Wales en werd in 1760 geograaf aan de Koning. Daarmee kreeg hij toegang tot de manuscripten en cartografische informatie in het bezit van de Engelse marine. Begin jaren 1760 begon hij aan een ambitieus project om op basis van nieuw onderzoek van een reeks Engelse graafschappen kaarten te produceren, maar het geld raakte op en zijn faillissement volgde in 1766. Hij werkte vervolgens samen met de Londense uitgever Robert Sayer, die veel van Jefferys' platen tot na zijn dood in 1771 opnieuw uitgaven. Di … [Click Below for Full Description]

Sir Walter Scott later called it an ‘excellent romance’; ‘since the mid-nineteenth century, Scott’s name has been linked to Naubert’s, and many have pointed to similarities in the authors’ approaches to historical fiction’ (Hilary Brown, Benedikte Naubert (1756–1819) and her Relations to English Culture (2005), p. 121). ‘Benedikte Naubert (1756–1819) was one of the first professional female authors in Germany [and an important translator from English literature]. Although her work has been overlooked in literary history because of its “trivial” associations—a pejorative term, particularly in German literary historiography [Trivialliteratur = light fiction]—she influenced writers such as Ann Radcliffe and Friedrich Schiller by establishing the secret tribunal novel (Vehmgerichtsroman). Hermann von Unna (“Hermann of Unna”, 1788) was the first of two such novels, with the second, Alf von Dülmen, following in 1791. Recently her oeuvre has been recognised for its importance in the development of the historical novel and fairy tale as literary genres, as well as preparing the ground for the genre of Gothic fiction’ (Taylor Institution blog, 15 Sep. 2017). ‘Alf von Dülmen has a remarkably Gothic/sublime mise-en-scène: the desolate valley, barren rocks, the ruined castle with its dungeons in which Alf spent forty years Here are the hero-villain, two Cain-figures, a robber band, and a memorably Got … [Click Below for Full Description]

An impressive printed land great, likely one of the fraudulent land grants issued by Georgia for their public domain lands, completed in manuscript for 1000 acres of land in Washington County, Georgia, granted by Gov. George Mathews to one Richmond Dawson. The document is signed by Mathews as well as by the surveyor, George Weatherby, who has included a sketch of the land in question. The land is described as ?on the waters of Choopee River, bounded SE and NE by said Dawson?s land and on all other sides by ?Vacant Lands.? Governor Mathews had an eventful career, first as a Revolutionary soldier (including a stint as colonel of the Virginia troops in Greene?s Carolina campaign), then as governor of Georgia, and finally as a special agent leading ?irregular? activities in attempts to wrest Florida from Spain in 1810-1812. In the end the U.S. Government repudiated Mathew?s Florida actions, and he died in Augusta a bitter old man. ?By his demise the authorities at Washington escaped the consequences of his threat that he?d ?be dam?d if he didn?t blow them all up,? and he carried to the grave much evidence that might explain his debatable conduct.

Darwin, Erasmus
1794. London: J. Johnson in St. Paul's Church-yard. 1st Edition. TRUE 1st EDITION OF ERASMUS DARWIN'S MOST IMPORTANT WORK, THIS CONTAINING HIS THEORY OF EVOLUTION INCLUDING EVOLUTION OF SPECIES, COMPETITION AND SEXUAL SELECTION. Volume I was issued in 1794; Volume II in 1796. "The Zoonomia contains a system of pathology and a treatise on generation" [reproduction] (Garrison & Morton). Darwin's ideas about animal adaption and sexual selection argue that 'one and the same kind of living filaments is and has been the cause of life'" (ibid). Erasmus Darwin (1732-1802) was a remarkable polymath, working as a physician, naturalist, medical botanist, and inventor. He was also Charles Darwin's grandfather. While not generally recognized, Erasmus Darwin had a theory of evolution that predated that of his grandson. He "struggled with the question of how one species could evolve into another... [writing] about what we now call competition and sexual selection: 'The final course of this contest among males seems to be, that the strongest and most active animal should propagate the species which should be thus improved'" (Rice, Encyclopedia of Evolution, 113). Darwin writes here of how life evolved from a single common ancestor, and how one species could evolve into another - an idea upon which his grandson must surely have drawn. "It is interesting to note that although Charles Darwin wrote that while he had read Zoonomia as a young man, it had had no effect on him; the first draft of On the Origin of Species was, however, entitled Zoonomia" (Dictionary of Scientific Biography, II … [Click Below for Full Description]

INDONESIA NAUTICAL CHART "A Chart of the West Coast of Sumatra from Old Bencoolen to Buffaloe Point containing the Road of Bencoolen and Poolo Bay. Plan of Rat Island. Plan of Poolo Bay."Copper engraving from "The East-India Pilot, or Oriental Navigator" published in London by Robert Laurie and James Whittle in 1794. Coloured by a later hand. Size: approx. 63,5 x 53,3 cm. Nautical chart of the west coast of Sumatra in the vicinity of Bencoolen or Fort Marlborough. The map is divided into three sections, the left hand side being a general nautical chart of the approaches to Bencoolen and Fort Marlborough, the right hand plans are details of Rat Island and Poolo Bay. Bencoolen (Bengkulu) was established as a pepper-trading center by the British East India Company in 1685. By the time this map was drawn Bencoolen has been renamed "Old Bencoolen", being superseded in 1714 by Fort Marlborough just to the south. The map offers considerable detail on the approaches to Bencoolen for which Rat Island (top right submap) is an important marker, as well as a staging post were vessels could dry anchor and dry nets. Poolo Bay (Pulau Bay) (bottom right submap), some seven miles south of Fort Marlborough, was at the time an excellent harbor and anchorage. There the map identifies warehouses as well as lime ovens and a fresh water source. Though most charts in the East-India Pilot were derived from earlier maps prepared for Jean-Baptiste d'Apres de Mannevillette's 1745 Neptune Oriental, this particular chart is a new production unique to Laurie and Whittle.

Nodder (fl. 1777-1800) "made illustrations for Erasmus Darwin's Botanic Garden, and a number of delicate little plates for T. Martyn's Flora Rustica - a volume dealing with 'plants useful or injurious to husbandry' - and other works. There are some skilful but rather stiff original drawings by him both at Kew and in the Natural History Museum" (Blunt, The Art of Botanical Illustration, p. 151). Chair of Botany at Cambridge from 1762, succeeding his father John to the chair, Thomas Martyn (1735-1825) was an early follower and proponent of the views of Linnaeus, teaching the Linnaean system of botany for the first time in an English university in 1763. In the preface Martyn explains the purpose of the publication: "It is our design to present the Public with such figures and descriptions of those plants with which the husbandman is principally concerned, as may leave no doubt upon his mind what object is intended, when one of them is recommended to him for its utility, or another is pointed out as proper for destruction. Most of the vegetables in common cultivation, must of course … [Click Below for Full Description]

INDONESIA NAUTICAL CHART "A New Plan of the Straits Situated to the East of Java & Madura commonly called The Straits of Bali and of Pondi and Respondi." Copper engraving from "The East-India Pilot, or Oriental Navigator" published in London by Robert Laurie and James Whittle in 1794. Coloured by a later hand. Size approx. 35, 6 x 50,8 cm. Nautical chart of the Strait of Bali, Indonesia, from Java's eastern extension to include the western half of Bali and the islands of Madura and Respondi (Sapudi). An inset near the left border details Java's Bay of Ballambouang. Java was a major producer of rice during the colonial era. Madura and most of Java was under the influence of the Dutch during this period. The map offers rich detail including countless depth soundings, notes on the sea floor, commentary on reefs, rhumb lines, shoals, coastal features, place names and a wealth of other practical information for the mariner. Cartographically this chart is derived from earlier maps prepared for Jean-Baptiste d'Apres de Mannevillette's 1745 Neptune Oriental. De Manevillette based his chart, as noted under the title, on "observations and remarks of the English Ships; the Winchelsea, commanded by the learned Mr. Howe, from whose surveys the Plan of the Eastern Part of Madura, and the Straits has been delineated; the Chesterfield in 1760; the Royal George in 1766; and of the French Ships, l'Elephant, and le Chameau, 1759: agreeable also with the remarks made by the English Ships, Onslow, Triton, Sandwich, Osterley, in 1758; Tavistock and Hawke in 1759".

INDONESIA NAUTICAL CHART "A New Chart for Sailing between the Straits of Sunda or Batavia and the Straits of Banca and Gaspar." Copper engraving from "The East-India Pilot, or Oriental Navigator" published in London by Robert Laurie and James Whittle in 1794. Coloured by a later hand. Size: 50,8 x 68,6 cm. Nautical chart of northwestern Java and eastern Sumatra, including the Straits of Sunda and the Strait of Banca. The map covers from the Strait of Banca southwards to the Krakatoa volcano, the east as far as Batavia (Jakarta). Throughout the 17th and 18th centuries, this region was a major battleground between rival Dutch, British, and Portugese trading monopolies. The Dutch and British in particular contested over northwestern Java, with its easy access to regional spice, in particular pepper, ports. In 1602 the British East India Company established a trade entrepot at Bantam to contest the Dutch East India Company (VOC) in nearby Batavia. The Dutch, allied with a local Sultan, eventually drove the English out of Bantam and Java itself. By the end of the 18th century, when this map was made, the Bantam entrepot was little more than a name on a map - as seen here - while Batavia further east had risen, with a population of nearly one million, to dominate Java. In 1800, just six years after this map was published, the VOC was formally dissolved and the Dutch East Indies established in its place as a full-fledged national colonial venture. The British meanwhile established themselves in Bencoolen, on Sumatra, and later in Singapore and Malacca. Cartographically this chart … [Click Below for Full Description]

"A General Map of the World or Terraqueous Globe, with all the New Discoveries and Marginal Delineations, Containing the Most Interesting Particulars in the Solar, Starry and Mundane Systems . . . 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. Size: 106,7 x 124,5 cm.Beautiful double hemisphere wall map of the world, embellished with a number of different Celestial Models. The map was revised several times to include the discoveries of Captain Cook's 3 voyages. The general outline of North America is known in 1794. However, few inland expeditions had extended westward beyond the Mississippi. The map notes two separate speculative courses for the mythical River of the West, a northern route extending from Lake Winnipeg and a southern route passing south of Winnepeg through Pike's lake. South America exhibits a typically accurate coastline and limited knowledge of the interior beyond Peru and the populated coastlands. A few islands are noted off the coast, including the Galapagos, which are referred to as the Inchanted Islands. The Amazon is vague with many of its tributaries drawn in speculatively. In Africa we also find the coasts well defined but a vague interior. The Nile River follows the Ptolemaic course with a presumed source in two lakes at the base of the "Mountains of the Moon". Asia is exceptionally well mapped reflecting the most recent information available in Europe. Australia appears in full as New Hollan … [Click Below for Full Description]

Light offsetting to endpapers; overall wide margined and clean. Collating [4], vi, 440: including half title, engraved title, and eight plates designed by Angelica Kauffman, a founding member of the Royal Academy of Arts. A surprisingly unfoxed and wider-margined copy than is typically found of this compilation of early educational works designed to help usher girls into adulthood. "These sheets were penned by some of the most amiable and well informed subjects of these realms, and intended as affectionate legacies of those noble and worthy persons to their amiable offspring, for whom they had such tender regard...to point out whatever was desirable and just in forming and perfecting the virtues of the female character." Thus, John Hamilton brings together a series of 16 pieces on women's education and etiquette, by authors including Dr. Gregory, Lady Pennington, the Marchioness of Lambert, John Dryden, and Lady Ann Bothwell. Using illustrations by a well-known female artist who was cutting edge in her own time, as a founding member of the Royal Academy of Arts, the Ladies Library was purposely suited and adapted for the use of the Female Sex" and for their parents, who might want to guide girls into responsible and intelligent womanhood.
