Oelsner, Konrad Engelbert):
(Leipzig), 1794. X, 310 S. HLdr. d. Zt. mit Rückenverg. Einer der wichtigsten Augenzeugenberichte in der sehr seltenen Originalausgabe. "Es ist erstaunlich, wie es auch typisch ist, daß einer der bedeutendsten politischen Schriftsteller unserer Literatur, einer der wichtigsten Augenzeugen der Französischen Revolution, Konrad Engelbert Oelsner (1724-1828), soweit vergessen werden konnte, daß eine Neuausgabe seines Hauptwerks heute eine Entdeckung genannt werden muß. Hinweise und Zeugnisse über ihn und sein Wirken sind spärlich und finden sich vor allem bei gleichfalls ins kollektive Vergessen gedrängten Autoren: von Zschokke, Jochmann, Varnhagen von Ense. Angezogen von den Ereignissen der Großen Revolution, die er wie viele deutsche Intellektuelle der Zeit enthusiastisch begrüßt, begibt sich Oelsner bald nach Paris, wo er in Beziehungen zu Graf Schlabrendorf, zu Georg Kerner, später auch zu Georg Forster tritt; als Mitglied des Jakobiner- Klubs, bald auch als Freund und Vertrauter führender Köpfe der Revolution. Bis zu seinem Tode den Ideen der Französischen Revolution treu und publizistisch tätig, mußte ihn die Entwicklung nach 1815 mit Verbitterung erfüllen; umgekehrt ist es bezeichnend, daß seine Schriften vergessen weil verschwiegen, vielleicht sogar wie die vieler anderer in jenen Jahren systematisch vernichtet worden sind. Der `Jakobiner` Oelsner, den Hegel 1794 in Bern aufsuchte, ist als Historiker und Publizist erst wieder sichtbar zu machen" (zitiert nach Ralph-Rainer Wuthenow: Die späte Wiederentdeckung eines bedeutenden Autors: Konrad Engelbert Oelsner). - Gering … [Click Below for Full Description]

London: Printed for J. Debrett, 1794. FIRST EDITION. 222 x 132 mm. (8 3/4 x 5 1/4"). lxii, [3], 226 pp. FIRST EDITION. Pleasing contemporary red straight-grain morocco, covers with gilt floral chain border, raised bands flanked by gilt rules, spine panels with gilt star tool, gilt-rolled turn-ins, all edges gilt. WITH A FINE FORE-EDGE PAINTING OF THE GALWAY WATERFRONT. Front flyleaf with author's ink presentation inscription to Sackville Hamilton; front pastedown with armorial bookplate of Ferdinand M. McVeagh. Kress Library 2783. Spine lightly soiled, joints and extremities a bit rubbed, isolated mild foxing or offsetting in the text bed, otherwise a very appealing copy, the text fresh and clean, the attractive binding sound, and THE FORE-EDGE PAINTING BRIGHT, with no signs of fading.This collection of essays by an Irish Catholic writer who nevertheless supported union with England comprises unusually serious content for a book adorned with a fore-edge painting, but the lively scene of the Galway docks is at least geographically an appropriate embellishment. MacKenna (d. 1808) wrote numerous pamphlets promoting a moderate unionist platform combined with an easing of the "popery" laws that placed restrictions on Catholic citizens. He was firmly opposed to the republicans arguing for an independent Ireland, and one of his most famous essays (included here) was his 1793 response to republican leader Wolfe Tone: "An Essay on Parliamentary Reform, and the Evils likely to ensue from a Republican Constitution in Ireland."

WILLIAM CULLEN BRYANT
WILLIAM CULLEN BRYANT (1794-1878). Bryant was an American writer and long-time editor of the New York Evening Post. Born in Massachusetts, he showed a propensity for poetry early on, gaining much attention for writing the scathing "The Embargo", an attack on the Jefferson presidency. His poetry career flourished with the publishing of his collection entitled Poems. He then became editor of The New-York Evening Post, a position he held for half a century. In his life, he was a staunch supporter of creating the Metropolitan Museum of Art and was active in creating Central Park. Bryant Park in New York City is named in his honor. ALS. 2pg. 5 ¼" x 8". March 17, 1862. New York. An autograph letter signed "W.C. Bryant" to President Abraham Lincoln. The writer lobbied for a diplomatic appointment: "I learn that an application has been made in behalf of John A.C. Gray Esq. of this city, desiring his appointment as our diplomatic representative at Rome. Allow me to bear my testimony to his merits, and to express my hope that the appointment will be given him. Mr. Gray is a most worthy and intelligent man, greatly esteemed in his community, an able business man, of flawless character and gentlemanly manners. He is a true patriot and will represent his country abroad as those who value its reputation would be glad to see it represented. The appointment would greatly gratify those who knew him here and I am confident would be agreeable to all American who visit Rome."

Magaw, Samuel
Philadelphia: Printed By W. Woodward, 1794. . 7¾" x 4¼". Full contemporary calf. [3-9] 10-24 pp. About good: lacks title leaf, ¼" x 2¼" rectangular piece of dedication leaf excised from lower outer corner, not affecting text; some early inked numbers on dedication page; portions of final two blank leaves perished; binding moderately worn with some loss at edges and corners. This is a sermon delivered at the opening of Philadelphia's first African American church and the first black Episcopal church in the United States. The congregation was led by Absalom Jones. By early 1791, after making inroads to Benjamin Rush, Jones and other black activists started planning for their own church. According to Gary B. Nash's Forging Freedom. The Formation of Philadelphia's Black Community 1720-1840 (Harvard University Press, 1988) , the church hoped to create "a pattern of religious commitment that ha[d] a double focus-the free and autonomous worship of God in the way Black people want[ed] to worship him, and the unity and social welfare of the Black community. " The plans were met with fierce resistance by many white religious leaders, including the threat by one Methodist elder to disown any black Methodist who participated in the church's creation. This resistance led to an impossibly low amount of financial donations and, were it not for Rush's intervention in encouraging a financier to give loans to the group, the church may not have been completed. Another hurdle was the building interruption caused by the yellow fever epidemic that began in July of 17 … [Click Below for Full Description]

Pleasing contemporary red straight-grain morocco, covers with gilt floral chain border, raised bands flanked by gilt rules, spine panels with gilt star tool, gilt-rolled turn-ins, all edges gilt. WITH A FINE FORE-EDGE PAINTING OF THE GALWAY WATERFRONT. Front flyleaf with author's ink presentation inscription to Sackville Hamilton; front pastedown with armorial bookplate of Ferdinand M. McVeagh. Kress Library 2783. Spine lightly soiled, joints and extremities a bit rubbed, isolated mild foxing or offsetting in the text bed, otherwise a very appealing copy, the text fresh and clean, the attractive binding sound, and THE FORE-EDGE PAINTING BRIGHT, with no signs of fading. This collection of essays by an Irish Catholic writer who nevertheless supported union with England comprises unusually serious content for a book adorned with a fore-edge painting, but the lively scene of the Galway docks is at least geographically an appropriate embellishment. MacKenna (d. 1808) wrote numerous pamphlets promoting a moderate unionist platform combined with an easing of the "popery" laws that placed restrictions on Catholic citizens. He was firmly opposed to the republicans arguing for an independent Ireland, and one of his most famous essays (included here) was his 1793 response to republican leader Wolfe Tone: "An Essay on Parliamentary Reform, and the Evils likely to ensue from a Republican Constitution in Ireland."

(HAMILTON, Lady Emma) REHBERG, Frederick.
[Rome:] , 1794. Quarto (320 x 250 mm). Contemporary boards with tan calf backing and red diced calf to sides, bordered with gilt roll. Engraved title page and 12 plates. Wear to board edges and spine, but nonetheless intact, faint damp stain to lower portion of plates, plates all reattached to binding with new stubs and endpapers Still an attractive example of a scarce survival. First edition, scarce, of Rehberg's record of Emma Hamilton's "attitudes". Perhaps based on her experiences as the "living illustration" of Hygæa at Dr. Graham's infamous "Temple of Health", or perhaps developed as an exhibition of neo-classical culture for her husband, Sir William Hamilton, whatever the truth, the reputation of these postures spread Europe-wide, not least through the agency of Goethe who witnessed them on his trip to Italy in 1787: "After many years of devotion to the arts and the study of nature, to find the epitome of these delights in a young girl."

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.

Andrew Ewing
Davidson County, 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.

Contemporary calf binding with red leather spine label. Leather rubbed. Pages toned with some worming to margins. Binding sound. Hamilton calls for an engraved frontispiece by S. Hill of Boston that is not present in this copy. These morality stories for children by the French author and poet Arnaud Berquin (1747-1791) originally appeared in monthly installments in a magazine called L' Ami Des Enfans. The tales were so popular they were collected and published together in French and English. Berquin's work is notable for its realism and lack of fantasy - no castles or supernatural powers are found within these pages. He wrote with the "conviction that children should be addressed directly, in language they could readily understand."
