        The Whole Duty of Woman . . . By a Lady. Written at the Desire of a Noble Lord

      Exeter, [N.H.]: Printed and Sold by Stearns & Winslow, 1794, 1794. A later American edition, but the first printed in Exeter, New Hampshire. Evans 27182; NCBEL II, 847 (but not noting American editions). In very good condition; a rare survival inm original state.. Small 8vo, contemporary plain brown wrappers, stitched, 56 pages. An immensley popular courtesty book for women, both in England where it was first published in 1753 and in America, where it saw more than 15 editions in eight cities between 1761 and 1798. William Kenrick (1725?-1779) was a prolific author, journalist and playwright who was legendary for his literary quarrels. His mild-mannered Whole Duty of Woman, published early in his career, was generally out of character with his later satirical works. This copy has an appealing American provenance: on the front free endpaper is the contemporary ownership signature and marks of Clymena Emirancy Allen, of Bernardson, Massachusetts, and on the verso of the endpaper is the slightly later bookplate of her cousin, Electa Allen.

        and natural philosophy, for the use of children. Designed to unite sentiments of religion with the study of nature.

      printed by R. Cruttwell and sold by C. Dilly Poultry London 1794 - with a folding table as frontispiece (tear emanating from where bound in, no loss), ?lacking half-title, pp. [3-] 68, small 8vo, contemporary mottled calf, gilt frames on sides, some wear, good. An attractive little provincial introduction, quite scarce. The unknown author introduces various quotations from the poets, Milton prime among them, and justifies their inclusion by reference to the same practice by Bonnycastle and Aikin. Asso often with mottled calf, the action of the acid has had unfortunate effects. Here there are islands of a good smooth calf surface, while the rest now resembles reversed calf: but the binding is structurally sound, and the marbled endpapers (of Bath manufacture) are particularly attractive. ESTC records 6 copies in the UK, and just Harvard in the US. (ESTC T112546

'In 1791, the expedition arrived at Tahiti and arrested fourteen of the mutineers. A cage constructed on the quarterdeck of the ship to hold the prisoners was nicknamed 'Pandora's Box'... Later in the voyage, the ship was wrecked on the Pandora Reef in Endeavour Strait. Captain Edwards left the prisoners to drown, but the master-at-arms dropped the keys to the mutineers and ten of the fourteen survived. Returning to England in 1792, the mutineers were tried by court martial; three were hanged, the rest acquitted or pardoned' (Hill). Ferguson, 182.

These were produced for each individual client and were made up from a manuscript description of his proposed improvements bound with Repton's own watercolour drawings of the grounds, with his proposed alterations displayed on an overlay. The present work is made up to a large degree of extracts from the Red Books of 57 houses which Repton had been called upon to "improve". A list of these houses, their location and their owners is given in a valuable two-page list towards the front of this volume. The work is broken down into various chapters: "Concerning Buildings", "Concerning Water", "Concerning Approaches", etc. In each chapter Repton selects the relevant section from each Red Book that is helpful to the point he is trying to make. In addition to the specific ideas that he is trying to convey, Repton also enters the fray on behalf of Capability Brown. The theoreticians, Payne Knight and Uvedale Price, had both written disparagingly of Brown's work and Repton here answers their arguments; a lengthy letter that Repton wrote to Price in July 1794 is quoted in full. The work ends with an intriguing list of sixteen "Sources of pleasure in Landscape Gardening" and William Wyndham's letter to Repton in support of his theories: "Places are not to be laid out with a view to their appearance in a picture, but to their uses, and the enjoyment of them in real life, and their conformity to those purposes is that which constitutes their true beauty: with this view gravel walks, and neat mown lawns . are in perfect good taste, and infinitely more conformable to the principles which form the basis of our pleasure in these instances, than the docks and thistles, and litter and disorder, that may make a much better figure in a picture". The plates echo the watercolours with which Repton invariably illustrated the Red Books. He makes extensive use of movable flaps or "slides" - generally to explain the effect he is trying to create by showing the property before his improvements (with the flap down) and after (with the flaps lifted). The quality of the aquatints is exceptional, and the folding view of the Duke of Portland's house Welbeck Abbey in Nottinghamshire is particularly interesting as it apparently shows Repton and his assistants at work on a survey of the estate.

        Anatomicae disquisitiones de auditu et olfactu. Edito altera auctior.

      Milano, Galeati, 1794, Folio, (19) 101, (1) pp., mit 16 Kupfertafeln, Halbledereinband der Zeit fleckig. Antonio Scarpa (1752-18) "made important researches concerning the auditory and olfactory apparatus, birds, reptiles, and man," further he is know in otology for Scarpa's liquor, the fluid in the membranous labyrinth of the inner ear and Scarpa's hiatus, the semi lunar opening of the tip of the cochlear canal where the scala tympani and scala vestibuli unite. "This work "ensures Scarpa's renown for discovering the membranous labyrinth. It was to be a keystone of otological research. Most of Scarpa's findings are still valid today. Only by means of the improved methods of preparation known to our century have some new details been added to Scarpa's examinations. The great results of Scarpa's studies in otological anatomy derive from his interest in comparative anatomy. Through the examination of lower animals who lacked some or all other parts of the human organ of hearing, Scarpa reached conclusions that led him to the discovery of the membranous labyrinth in man. Scarpa's findings are completely original, experiencing only very slight supplementation later. Valsalva's 'zonae sonorae' and Cotugno's 'neural tissue partition', both based on inadequate methods of examination, were discarded. The fine detail of Scarpa's description of the cochlea surpasses that of Cotugno. His measurement data regarding the cochlea and his description of the canals in the modiolus are especially excellent" Politzer Scrapa, a brilliant artist as well as a brilliant anatomist, was trained in anatomy by Morgagni at Padua and studied surgery in Bologna. At the age of twenty he became professor at Modena, and in 1783 he went to Pavia where he helped bring the University to pre-eminence. His legacy includes works in otolaryngology, orthopedics, ophthalmology, neuroanatomy, and surgery. The plates were drawn by the author. His anatomic prints are models of anatomic representation as regards faithful differentiation of the tissues, correctness of form, and the utmost precision of engraving. "Both editions contain the same copperplates, viz., eight finished plates, each with an outline plate with letters. The first five plates deal with zoötomic subjects, the last three with human anatomy. They are all drawn by Scarpa. The first two are engraved by Bededotto Eredi of Florence, the third does not give the name of the engraver, but seems to have been done by Faustino Anderloni, whose name is signed under the last five plates.

        Miscellaneous Poems. The Illustrious Friends; Address to Music and Poesy, &c. .

      Printed for W. Miller ., London 1794 - Sole edition of this collection by a Bungay Quaker poet. By the far the longest poem is the first, 'The Illustrious Friends', a violent polemic directed against Thomas Paine and the principles of the Rights of Man. After some 640 lines describing the hell to which the nation would be brought by them, he concludes:'Such our Republic will possess,To plague, to torture, and oppress;To force our arbitrary sway,And make our subject Fiends obey:For such is Paine's and Satan's plan,The practice of the Rights of Man.'The subscribers are predominantly East Anglian. This appears to have been Ashby's only substantial collection, with COPAC recording just one other publication bearing his name, Ode on the Surrender of Paris, to the Allies; July 3d. 1815 (Bungay printed, apparently by the author himself) and another suppositious title, Song of "Old Bungay": as sung at the Theatre, by Mr. Fisher (Bungay, c. 1816). The British Book Trade Index records him as 'Printer, Bookseller, Stationer, Publisher' in 1830. 4to (235 × 168 mm), pp. xiv, [2], 158, [2] (blank), including subscribers' list; printed on a bluish paper; modern sprinkled calf gilt, to style, by Philip Dusel, to style; a very good copy.

        Article on Hindu rhinoplasty. In: The Gentleman's Magazine LXIV, Teil 2, No. 4, (pp.891-892, 1 ganzseitige Kupferstichtafel).

      The Gentleman's Magazine (vollst. Band Juli - Dezember), London, John Nichols, 1794, 8, pp.585-1212, 21 Taf., marmorierter Halbledereinband der Zeit. - 21176 EIN MEILENSTEIN DER PLASTISCHEN CHIRURGIE FIRST REPORT OF INDIAN RHINOPLASTY ERSTE AUSGABE. Der Bericht von "B.L." in 'The gentleman's magazine' informierte Europas Chirurgen erstmalig über die Hindumethode der Nasenplastik. DIESE VERÖFFENTLICHUNG MARKIERT BEGINN UND AUSGANGSPUNKT DER MODERNEN PLASTISCHEN CHIRURGIE. Mit Carpue's erfolgreichen rhinoplastischen Operationen ereichte die neue Methode einen ersten Höhepunkt! Der indische Ochsentreiber Cowasjee geriet im Dienste der Britischen Kolonialarmee 1792 in Gefangenschaft des Sultans Tipoo, der ihm die Nase und eine Hand abschneiden ließ. Ein Jahr später erhielt er durch die Kunst eines Mannes aus der Ziegelmacherkaste bei Poona eine neue Nase aus der Stirnhaut. Die Veröffentlichung des Berichtes von B.L. über diesen Eingriff enthält Hinweise zur Operationstechnik und eine schöne, ganzseitige Tafel mit detaillierten Angaben. Nur selten hat ein "Letter to the Editor" eine so stürmische Entwicklung einer ganz neuen medizinischen Fachrichtung eingeleitet, wie diese Veröffentlichung in 'The gentleman's magazine'. FIRST EDITION. "The event which again brougt rhinoplasty to the attention of European surgeons and initiated the revival of the practice that was to lead to its full modern development was the publication in 1794 of the description of a rhinoplastic operation on the bullock-driver Cowasjee, together with an engraving showing various details of the procedure." - Gnudi-Webster, 309. The report of the curious Indian operation in 'The gentleman's magazine' was the turning point in the development of modern plastic surgery. 'The gentleman's magazine' (1731 - 1907) was the first general periodical in Great Britain and so popular that its name became the generic.

        Considerations on the Factitious Airs, and on the Manner of obtaining them in large Quantities, in two Parts. Part I. By Thomas Beddoesd, M.D.. Part II. By James Watt, Esq.

      Bristol : Printed By Bugin and Rosser, (1794), 8, 48 32 pp., 3 z.T. gefalt. Kupferstichtafeln, feiner Halbledereinband mit Rvg. und Rückenschild feines Exemplar. Very Rare First Edition! Part I. A Familiar Explanation of the Principles on which Benefit may be expected from Factitious Airs in Various Diseases. Part II. Description of an Air Apparatus with Hints respecting the Use and Properties of Different Elastic Fluids. By James Watt. Illustrations: The three plates show Watt's pneumatic apparatus for administering the gas."This is the rare first edition of the Beddoes-Watt tract. In the second edition which was much expanded (1795: 168, 40 pp.) Beddoes states: "The former edition of this pamphlet, consisting of between 500 and 600 copies, appeared in the middle of October, 1794. The booksellers had disposed of most of the copies in a few weeks and in less than four months a new impression became necessary." Of Watt's contribution the D.N.B. states: "Watt had his interest in chemical science still further stimulated by the hope of benefiting the health of his invalid son, Gregory, by the inhaling of gases, called in those days 'factitious airs.' This mode of cure was advocated by the celebrated Dr. Thomas Beddoes, and Watt devised an apparatus to be used in hospitals, and of a smaller size in private houses, for the generation of the 'airs,' and in 1795 published a pamphlet [the second edition], with illustrations, prices, and directions for use. Two principal 'airs' were to be produced, the one oxygen and the other hydro-carbonate this appears to have been a mixture of hydrogen, carbonic acid, and some carbonic oxide. This horrible compound was not supposed to be of the best kind, nor to do its work properly, unless it had the effect of producing in the unhappy inhaler an attack of vertigo." Fulton & Stanton I,8Nitrous Oxide : "The use of volatile agents to abrogate sensation had its primary origin in the work of three men: Joseph Priestley, Thomas Beddoes, and Humphry Davy. In 1772 Priestley discovered nitrous oxide, and he was also largely responsible for introducing the modem chemical study of the gases. He had not observed the exhilarating effects of nitrous oxide inhalation, but after discovering oxygen in 1774 he cautiously suggested that inhalation of certain gases might be of therapeutic benefit, particularly for diseases involving the lungs. His suggestion was taken up both in England and on the Continent, and Thomas Beddoes of Bristol was so impressed by Priestley's studies that in 1794 he and James Watt, the inventor of the steam-engine, published a book on the medical uses of die so-called "factitious airs," which enjoyed great popularity." Fulton & Stanton, p.8The first part by Beddoes covers experiments that he conducted on humans and animals subjected to inhaling various gases."The most important contribution to the study of therapeutic inhalation in general was made by Thomas Beddoes." Duncum, The Development of Inhalation Anaesthesia, pp. 64-70."Perhaps the first modern gas inhaler was the one that James Watts, an engineer, constructed for Thomas Beddoes." Thomas, E. Keys, The History of Surgical Anesthesia, p.83John F. Fulton & Madeline E. Stanton, The Centennial of Surgical Anesthesia (1946), I, 8.

      Charleston: Printed and sold by W.P. Young, 1794. 40,[2],73,[1],15,[5]pp., plus eight folding plates. 12mo. Contemporary calf, gilt morocco spine label. Neatly rebacked, original spine laid down. A few of the plates are wrinkled and edgeworn, but overall very clean internally. Contemporary ownership signature on titlepage. In very good, original condition overall. In a cloth chemise and half morocco and cloth slipcase, spine gilt. A rare, complete, Southern edition, printed in Charleston, of this important military manual, written expressly for the use of American troops during the Revolutionary War. This copy has an excellent South Carolina provenance, bearing the ownership signature on the titlepage of William S. Bull, the son and grandson of the South Carolina governors of the same name. The German-born Steuben, well-trained in the highly disciplined military system developed under Frederick the Great, served as inspector general of the Continental Army. In this capacity, he wrote his REGULATIONS FOR THE ORDER AND DISCIPLINE OF THE TROOPS OF THE UNITED STATES on orders from the Continental Congress. First published in 1779, the work became the standard text for the Continental Army and the United States Army into the early 19th century. Fifty editions, abridgements, extracts, and adaptations were printed before 1800. Steuben's contribution to American independence can not be underestimated. "He was unrivaled among the citizens of the new nation as an expert on military affairs. His introduction of European military concepts to the Continental army marks the beginning of a truly professional military tradition in the United States" - ANB. This Charleston edition of Steuben's manual is quite rare, with only four copies listed by NAIP and Gould & Morgan: the Library of Congress, the John Carter Brown Library, the University of South Carolina and the Charleston Library Society (lacking a plate). OCLC adds the Harvard Law School Library (also lacking a plate). Also included in this edition is the text of two acts organizing the South Carolina militia. The first military manual devised for the Continental Army, still employed as the standard guide for militias in the early Federal period, in a very rare Southern edition.

        An Account of a Rich Illuminated Missal executed for John Duke of Bedford, Regent of France under Henry VI. And afterwards in the Possession of The Late Duchess of Portland

      London: J. Nichols for T. Payne, 1794. 4to (259 x 204 mm). Four engraved plates reproducing miniatures and text. 19th-century green half calf. Rebacked; some foxing. Provenance: manuscript corrections in text of some of the corrigenda; Sir William Lee and the Rev. Sir George Lee, Hartwell Library (armorial bookplates); W. Wilson (1828 inscription noting the date of binding); S.D.R. (1896 inscription on front free endpaper); purchased from Hurst & Hurst, 1982. FIRST EDITION of the most comprehensive description of the Bedford Hours to date. This spectacular late medieval French book of hours dates to circa 1410-30. The Duke and Duchess of Bedford gave it to their nephew Henry VI in 1430. Later owners included King Henry II of France and his wife Catherine de' Medici; Frances Worsley; and Edward Harley who bequeathed it to his daughter Margaret Bentinck, Duchess of Portland. James Edwards (1757-1811) acquired the manuscript at the sale of the Duchess of Portland's collection in 1786. Later, "[it] was purchased at [Edward's] sale by the Marquis of Blandford, afterwards Duke of Marlborough, for six hundred and eighty-seven pounds, fifteen shillings. It is now in the British Museum" (Fletcher, English Book Collectors, p. 299). This is only the third English monograph on an illuminated manuscript. The rich and detailed illuminations were copied directly from the Missal by James Edward's brother, John. Brunet II, no.1678; Lowndes II, p. 920. From the Collection of Arthur & Charlotte Vershbow.

        Series of Documents and Letters Signed.

      Various places: , 1794-1813. 7 documents, 6 signed by Napoleon using the various signatures adopted through the course of his life, the other with an important autograph addition in his own hand. The six documents signed preserved in a blue morocco-backed cloth box, the first letter preserved in an individual custom made red morocco folder. In very good condition. An excellent collection of seven letters from Napoleon I, giving a sweeping overview of the Emperor's life from 1794, soon after the siege of Toulon, where he first came to prominence, until March 1813, just six months before the catastrophic battle of Leipzig. The letters give an interesting insight into the development of his signature, ranging from "Buonaparte", to "Bonaparte", and the later "Napoleon", "Napol" or hurried "Np". They are attractively presented in a specially-made blue cloth album with blue morocco spine with gold lettering. The first letter, with the lengthy autograph ending, is in a separate red morocco folder, as befits the most important letter in the group. All the letters have a translation and description on the facing page of the album. They are described below: 1). The first letter in the group, unsigned but with an important autograph addition in Napoleon's hand at the end, dates from January 1794, soon after the end of the siege of Toulon where the young artillery general first made his mark. Here we find Napoleon still an ardent republican and acknowledging his Corsican roots. Glowing reports of his abilities and leadership were sent back to Paris by Augustin Robespierre, younger brother of Maximilien Robespierre, head of the all-powerful Committee of Public Safety. Writing to General Montfort, Napoleon orders him to go to St. Tropez in order to examine the state of the artillery in the town and the surrounding area. In his final instructions, written in his own hand, Napoleon instructs Montfort to set up a "gril a boulets rouges", literally a grill for red-hot shots, and to set up an oven for the same, about which he would write later with an explanation of the advantages of such weapons. The "boulets rouges" were cannonballs which were heated prior to being fired, so that they would cause maximum destruction not only on impact but, depending on where they fell, by setting fire to the surrounding area. These were primarily used in naval battles in the hopes of not only damaging enemy ships but also burning them, and would have proved particularly useful when defending France's Mediterranean coast. 2). Four months later, whilst in Nice, Napoleon writes to Citizen Chautrou with his earliest form of signature, "Buonaparte". Writing to Citizen Chautrou, Napoleon enclosed a decree [not present] from the "Representative of the People" ordering Chautrou to Nice to work with him, bringing with him all necessary material to organize a bureau of "dessins", literally "drawings". This was almost certainly a topographical bureau, which would, in later years, become an essential part of Napoleon's service when planning his campaigns. The letter has a near-intact red wax seal by the signature. 3). This is followed by a letter written in 1799, signed "Bonaparte". Napoleon had changed the spelling of his surname well before his marriage to Josephine de Beauharnais in 1796, adopting the French spelling of Bonaparte. Napoleon arrived in Egypt in June of 1798. He had long had what amounted to an obsession with Egypt and the Middle East, and arrived there well prepared. He had read and studied enough of the Koran to impress Egyptians with well-selected quotes from it, and had a firm grasp of the cultural nuances of the region. The Egyptian campaign was ostensibly a stepping stone to the French conquest of India, where the British, though powerful, faced fierce opposition from Indian leaders, most memorably from Tipu Sultan. In fact, Napoleon most likely saw it as another step in cementing his reputation, while the Directoire in France found it very convenient to have this very capable, but slightly over-dominant, young man out of the way. Napoleon was not to be kept out of the way for very long. By October 1799 he was back in Paris; by the 9th of November, he was First Consul. In this letter, Napoleon passes on instructions from General Junot that Commissionaire Rolland[?] should remain in Suez, while his deputy, Mullan, be sent to Cosseir [Kosseir], noting that the posting in Cosseir would never be as important as that in Suez. 4). Napoleon was crowned Emperor on 2 December 1804, and immediately adopted the signature appropriate for a monarch, "Napoleon". He established a court which displayed the power and wealth of France, more splendid than anything seen since Louis XIV. A document sent in June 1805 to the Archchancellor of the Holy Roman Empire, recalling France's ambassador, M. Portalis, and replacing him with M. Hedouville, is written in a very beautiful hand, with the heading giving due prominence to Napoleon's titles, Emperor of the French and King of Italy, with the initial "N" of Napoleon recalling the initial letters used by monarchs in the past. Portalis, a much-respected figure, had requested to be allowed to return to France to be with his family, particularly his ailing father, and was recalled as a favour. Six months later, Napoleon was to defeat the combined forces of three Empires, Russia, Austria and the Holy Roman Empire. Before the end of 1806, the Holy Roman Empire had ceased to exist. The document is dated "le 20 Prairial an 13", using the Revolutionary calendar. This would have been one of the last documents dated in this manner, as the country reverted to the traditional calendar by the end of 1805. The document is countersigned by the great Foreign Secretary, Charles Maurice de Talleyrand, and by the Secretary of State, Hughes Maret. 5). In May 1810, Napoleon, who had married Marie Louise of Austria the previous month, nevertheless found time to concern himself with the horses, caissons and transport for the army, but signed with a hurried "Np" on a letter written to his Minister for War, Henri Clarke, Duc de Feltre. The abbreviated signature "Np" is the one most frequently found on letters organizing general matters or sending instructions. The longer "Napol" was used for slightly weightier matters, and "Napoleon" reserved for official letters or the most important of orders. 6). A letter dated November 1811, again to Clarke, ordering troop movements around Calais, Dunkerque and Boulogne as well as concerns over the accommodation for the troops in Bruxelles, displays the "Napol" signature. As on the previous letter, one can see the ink stains around the signature, a frequent occurrence in Napoleon's correspondence which could be signed in some haste. Although the war in the Peninsula continued to see fierce fighting between French and British troops and their allies, for Napoleon this was a relatively peaceful period; he spent all but six weeks of the year in France. His only venture outside French borders was to visit Antwerp, Holland, and Dusseldorf and Cologne in October and early November. The birth of his only legitimate child, the King of Rome, in March of that year had been the cause of much celebration and Napoleon appears to have much enjoyed spending time with the infant. 7). The final letter in the collection, signed "Np", takes us to March 1813. Napoleon had returned to Paris three months earlier, the Grande Armée decimated after the disastrous Russian campaign. Writing to his Finance Minister, Count Mollien, Napoleon hastens to correct a misunderstanding which had arisen due to an article in Le Moniteur, the official government newspapers which invariably presented a favourable view of matters. In this case, the stock market had evidently been disturbed by reports that further troops were to be raised, and Napoleon explains that the numbers mentioned related to the 1814 conscripts. The denials may have been a vain attempt to calm the financial world. A few days later, Marie Louise was declared Regent, as Napoleon left to embark on a campaign which would lead to his disastrous defeat at Leipzig in October. A scarce opportunity to acquire examples of all of Napoleon's signatures, together with an example of his own handwriting.
