        Observations on the River Potomack, the Country adjacent, and the City of Washington.

      New York, Loudon and Brower, 1794. Format: 8°.. 30 S. (ohne die Tafel und Karte).. . Halbleinen um 1930 mit goldgeprägtem Rückentitel, breiten Leinenecken und Buntpapierbezug. .. ENGLISH DESCRIPTION: Extremely rare original print of Tobias Lear's "Oberservations on the River Potomack", an important early publication about the founding of Washington DC and the settlements to become the United States of America. Lear was personal secretary to President George Washington. Some copies contain a map and a plate which are missing here. Some minor damages as first to leaves loose, some rebacked tear outs to white margins, title page ink stained, slightly browned and foxed, but alltogether a good copy of the extremely rare original print, which can be found only a few libraries worldwide (mostly only digital copies known and accessible). Erste Ausgabe. Gründungsgeschichte der Vereinigten Staaten von Amerika*** Erste Ausgabe der Schilderung des River Potomack und der Stadt Washington, von dem Privatsekretär des ersten Präsidenten der Vereinigten Staaten von Amerika, George Washington, der die letzten berühmten Worte am Totenbett überlieferte: "'Tis well": Tobias Lear (1762-1816) arbeitete in Washingtons "Potomac Company", die die schiffbarmachung des Potomac Flusses voranbrachte, aber auch in zahlreichen Landverkäufen tätig war. Im Auftrage Washingtons versuchte Lear, amerikanische Ländereien im District of Columbia an Europäer zu verkaufen, wofür er mehrer Reisen in Europa unternahm. Das kleine Büchlein ist also das erste gedruckte Zeugnis dieser Tätitkeit und eng verknüpft mit der amerikanischen Gründungsgeschichte, ein überaus seltenes Zeugnis, das nur in ganz wenigen Exemplaren bekannt ist. Einigen Exemplaren der Auflage wurde noch eine Tafel und eine Karte beigegeben, die hier beide fehlen. Titel und erstes Blatt mit Riss am Bug (lose, Titel alt angesetzt), Titel und wenige weitere Blätter mit hinterlegten Randausrissen, Titel teils stärker tintenfleckig, Blätter gebräunt und leicht angeschmutzt, insgesamt aber im Text vollständig und in guter Gesamterhaltung. Von bemerkenswerter Seltenheit. Kein Exemplar in der Berliner Staatsbibliothek, der KOBV verzeichnet lediglich eine "Elektronische Ressource" in der Universität Potsdam, auch sonst in Deutschland nur Online-Ausgaben. Auch in vielen amerikanische Bibliotheken fehlt ein Originaldruck des Rarissimums. Sabin 39533.

        Cottagers

      Published by T. Simpson and Darling & Thompson, London 1794 - Colour printed mezzotint with added hand colour. Image size: 17 3/8 x 21 3/4 inches. Very good condition apart from a mild crease in the lower right of the image. A lovely colour printed impression of this charming print by Ward after the famous genre painter George Morland. Morland pursued his vision of pastoral contentment in many pictures during the 1790's, many of which were superbly engraved by his brother-in-law, William Ward. These took many forms and the emotional idea at the basis of them has lived on into our era. Here, the young couple with four young children share the twilight hour with their pigs, chickens and dog. This end of day re-union of the family was clearly a kind of sacred moment for Morland, a kind of non-sectarian, rural vespers. George Morland was one of the most successful genre painters of his time, creating, during his industrious career, some of England's most cherished paintings. At an early age Morland displayed his artistic genius, he learned to paint at three and exhibited his first work at the Royal Academy at the mere age of ten. He was a prodigious painter, producing more than 4000 paintings during the entirety of his career, and sometimes painting two or three works in a day. His beautiful idealistic scenes were a favorite source of inspiration for contemporary engravers, and as many as 250 separate engravings were done of his paintings during his lifetime. His brother-in-law, William Ward, engraved a great number of his paintings reproducing in print his endearing paintings of English country life. Ward's engravings after Morland are some of the most beautiful prints of the period; they combine fine technical skill and inspired artistic imagination to create enduring images that speak of the taste and beauty of the age.

        The State of the Prisons in England and Wales, with preliminary observations, and an account of some foreign prisons and hospitals The fourth edition

      London: J Johnson, C Dilly and T Cadell, 1794 Book. Very Good. Half-Leather. Signed by Author(s). 4th Edition. [6],[1] pp 2-540 22 engraved plates, some folding. John Howard's influential treatise which has been extra illustrated with a manuscript petition and letter from the debtors of the Newcastle Newgate Prison from 1794. The two manuscript leaves have been bound in opposite the account of Newcastle gaol at page 422. The first folded sheet is a covering letter addressed to the Home Secretary Henry Dundas, dated 23 April, 1794 which announces the 'Petition to his Majesty, which we beg of your Honour to present at your convenience'. The debtors make a case for a change in the law based on their 'small debts and... families, who must become chargeable to their respective parishes, being deprived, by our confinement here, of their former means of support', making reference to a bill being introduced by the Lord Chancellor which might include such a measure. The letter is signed by Hermoth Anderson and accompanied by a separate leaf containing the petition itself, elegantly set out and signed to the rear by 12 individual debtors including Anderson, Ann Harle, Jon Philpott and others. Given the influence of Howard's reformist text, the context of these letters could hardly be more appropriate. The book is bound in half calf over original marbled boards, somewhat rubbed, sympathetically respined and with reinforcement to the inner hinges of what is a heavy quarto. The text and superb engravings are all present although the half title is wanting. Printing and the Mind of Man, 224.

Laid onto supportive backing sheet. Surface soiling in margins. Image size: 18 x 13 9/16 inches. A richly coloured, sharp impression of Morland's pleasant image of very old and very young people George Morland was one of the most successful genre painters of his time, creating, during his industrious career, some of England's most cherished paintings.

The staid old man smiles reflectively toward his grandson, who is looking at his sister harrass the dog with her little blow toy, while the other sister tries on a mask and funny hat. Dawe, G.

        Merits of Mr Pitt and Mr Hastings as Ministers in War and in Peace : Impartially Stated [FIRST EDITION PUBLISHED 1794]

      Printed for J Debrett, U.K., 1794, Leather Binding, Book Condition: Very Good, Dust Jacket Condition: No Jacket, First Editionviii, 80 pages + 24 page biographies (modern) in modern, heavy maroon leather covered boards with gilt lettering to spine, map pastedowns and copy of a Gillray cartoon inlaid to front. Though not credited, the British Library gives the author as William Pitt (The Younger) one of the subjects and the, then, Prime Minister. Warren Hastings, governor general of Bengal since 1773, returned home in 1785, having greatly strengthened British power in India, only to undergo the ordeal of an impeachment for his conduct. Pitt honestly believed that there was a case against Hastings and, determined that the British name should be freed from the suspicion of injustice or oppression in the government of Asian peoples, supported the demand for an inquiry. But those who conducted the impeachment acted with unwarrantable rancour; the trial dragged on for seven years and, although Hastings was finally acquitted, the expenses almost ruined him. Pitt's anonymous report on the case was published in paper covers. To this has been added 24 pages of modern biographies giving much additional historical and biographical detail of both men. The complete untrimmed document is a little creased to extreme edges, well away from the text and with light grubbiness to covers and title pages but otherwise lovely, clean and bright. It has been re-sewn and then lightly tied with the biographies into heavy maroon leather covered boards with gilt lettering to spine. Both pastedowns are illustrated with coloured political maps of 18th century India and a copy of one of the great political cartoonist, James Gillray's works is inlaid to the front board. A unique and beautiful book of great historic interest. Size: 10 inches tall by 6.75 inches. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 750gms-1kgm.

Whole volume. 647pp. 2 plates. 19th century quarter cloth, mottled boards, remains of library shelf-label on spine, minor edgewear. Stamps (some Nazi-era) of the Bibliothek des Med.-Klin. Institut, Munich on title, verso half-title and endpapers. First Edition, journal issue of Flourens’ first paper on cerebral function. In an effort to refute Gall’s theory of cerebral localization, Flourens carried out a famous series of experiments on pigeons, in which he selectively removed either the cerebral lobes or the cerebellum in order to demonstrate their roles in brain physiology. The pigeons deprived of their cerebral lobes retained their sense of equilibrium, but lost all sense of volition and showed no sensory awareness of their surroundings; in contrast, those deprived of their cerebellums lost all ability to coordinate their muscular motions, but retained their ability to initiate movement and process sensory information. Flourens concluded from these experiments that the cerebral lobes were the seat of intelligence and perception, while the faculty of muscular coordination resided in the cerebellum; however, he insisted that the entire brain acted as a whole with respect to each of its functions.

        TO THE CITIZENS OF BALTIMORE-TOWN [caption title]

      [Baltimore: Printed by James Angell & Paul J. Sullivan, 1794].. Broadside, 11 1/2 x 7 inches. Early ink note on verso: "Mr. Thornton." Old folds. Small separation at one crossfold, affecting two letters of text. Unevenly trimmed around the text. Very good. A very rare Federal-era broadside - only the second located copy - printing the text of an open letter from Judge Samuel Chase to the citizens of Baltimore in the wake of a riot in 1794. Chase, a signer of the Declaration of Independence and a future Supreme Court Justice, defends his actions in detaining the leaders of the mob, and appeals to the citizens of Baltimore to value order and government over their destructive passions. The occasion for the uprising was Congress' declaration of a thirty-day embargo on foreign trade, issued in March 1794. A local shipmaster, Capt. Ramsdell, expressed his displeasure at the end of the embargo, and he and another man, named Stenton (described in the broadside as an "American pirate"), were attacked by a mob. Among the leaders of the mob was Capt. David Stodder, the owner of a local shipyard, and Capt. William Reeves. The mob set upon Ramsdell and Stenton at Fells Point and tarred and feathered them. Chase, who at the time was chief justice of the District Criminal Court in Baltimore and chief justice of the Maryland General Court, ordered that Stodder and Reeves, as the ringleaders, be held in custody pending charges unless they could offer up bail. Stodder and Reeves refused to post bail, and their supporters threatened to tear down the jail and to raze Chase's home. After giving them a day to cool down, the prisoners agreed to post bail and the tense situation abated. In the present broadside Chase describes and justifies his actions, making an eloquent case for the rule of law over the mentality of the mob. He lays out the details of the events, explains his actions in detail, and describes the threats made against him, his family and property, and against public order. Chase concludes by stating that he is doing his duty as a judge and following the oath of his office, and that he is not appealing to the citizens of Baltimore to protect himself, "but that you may determine whether you ought to suffer an outrage to your laws, so fatal to the prosperity of this town, so destructive of all order, and so subversive of your government." This broadside is without an imprint, and the identity of the printers is based on the attribution by Evans. Evans, NAIP, and Minick all locate only a single copy, at the Maryland Historical Society. Rare and quite interesting for the history of law and civic culture in the early American Republic. EVANS 26762. NAIP w000729. MINICK 159. Francis F. Beirne, THE AMIABLE BALTIMOREANS (New York, 1951), pp.144-45.

      Port de la Montagne [i.e. Port Louis]: Chez F.N. Bolle, [1794]. - 28pp. Small quarto. Stitched as issued. Contemporary notation on first page, some contemporary underlining in text. Minor soiling. Very good. A remarkable early imprint from the colonial press at the French colony of Mauritius, also known as the Ile de France, in the south Indian Ocean. The text contains a report of the French Revolutionary Committee of Public Safety regarding prisoners arrested on the island of Réunion being held as enemies of the Revolution. The document was printed in the capital, Port Louis, which was called Port de la Montagne from 1792 to 1795. The Dutch were the first Europeans to become interested in the island, taking possession in 1598. After exploiting the island's dense forests for a century and introducing the cultivation of sugar cane and cotton, in 1710 the Dutch abandoned the colony. The French soon claimed it as "Ile de France," and the island remained under the control of the French East India Company until 1767. During the long war between France and England at the beginning of the 19th century, Mauritius proved to be an important strategic naval base, and as a result the British took charge of the island in 1810, and the Treaty of Paris confirmed official British possession in 1814. It remained an important sugar producing colony, and in the 20th century agricultural production was expanded to include tea, rice, and other produce. Printing began on Mauritius in 1768. During the French period, until 1810, only about 400 imprints were produced, mostly in the form of official documents and newspapers, though there are also almanacs and a few other items. All are quite rare. No copies located in OCLC; Toussaint locates a copy at the Archives Nationales in Paris. TOUSSAINT A247.
