        THE SEASONS

      London: Printed for Iohn Stockdale, 1794. Hardcover. Quintessential Edwards Fore-Edge Painting. 165 x 98 mm (6 1/2 x 3 7/8"). xix, [i], 256, [32] pp. (apparently published without a printed title). Once extremely pretty and still charming contemporary vellum in the style of--and probably by--Edwards of Halifax, covers with frame formed by plain and decorative gilt rules, including a Greek key roll on a painted band of blue and an elegant cresting border incorporating an undulant beaded roll and leafy garlands, this frame enclosing a center panel with a floral tool pointing diagonally inward at each corner, flat spine ornately gilt in compartments with a lyre centerpiece crossed with trumpets and enclosed by a lozenge of small tools and drawer-handle cornerpieces, title labelling on a blue wash, gilt turn-ins, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. WITH A PLEASING FORE-EDGE PAINTING OF AN ENGLISH LANDSCAPE containing typical Edwards features (see below). With extra engraved title page (featuring oval portrait of Thomson) and 14 engraved plates after Thomas Stothard, as called for. Front pastedown with heraldic bookplate bearing the motto "Confido." Front flyleaf with early(?) 19th century ink inscription to J. B. Macbride from F. Pickford. Vellum slightly soiled, front board a little splayed, blue paint mostly rubbed off the titling label and a bit faint in a couple of small spots in the cover border (spine gilt also somewhat dulled or lost), but the original unsophisticated binding solid and still retaining much of its appeal as an Edwards example, and, most importantly, with the painting in excellent state. Title page and frontispiece a little foxed, minor offsetting from plates, other trivial imperfections, but a very pleasing copy internally, the leaves clean and fresh. In terms of binding design, artistic representation, and the work chosen for special treatment, this is a quintessential example of a fore-edge painting done by its foremost exponent and practitioner. The Edwards of Halifax bindery was founded by William Edwards (1723-1808) and continued by several of his brothers, half-brothers, and sons (by far the most important of the sons being Thomas, who lived from 1762-1834). This famous firm produced a number of important innovations in binding design, the most significant being the idea of concealing a painting under the gilt of the fore edge. This hidden treasure could be revealed, once the edge was fanned out, as a special surprise element of the volumes they bound--typically in Etruscan calf, or, as here, in vellum decorated with gilt and blue wash. In its content and style, the present fore-edge painting is so typical of the scenes rendered by the Edwards workshop that we feel confident in asserting that the edge must have been decorated at or near the time of the binding. As is the case in the majority of painted Edwards scenes, there is a body of water to the right and some important structure to the left (this is often a stately home, but sometimes--as here--is part of a ruined church or castle). The water is spanned by an arched stone bridge (another frequent visual ingredient). Clusters of leafy trees complete the picture, and a fair blue sky with puffy clouds reigns over the entire tranquil setting. The soft colors used, primarily blues, greens, and grays, are also typcial of the Edwards palette. First published in 1730, "The Seasons" was considered in its day to be the most influential poem in blank verse between Milton and the Romantics. The poem finds beauty in the wild places, as well as the cultivated fields, and sees in nature the reflection of the creator's bounty. The poem was incredibly popular, found in a vast number of English homes, whether cottages or castles, and was a popular choice for embellishment with fore-edge paintings.

        A New and Correct Map of Scotland or North Britain with all the Post and Military Roads, Divisions, &c

      London: Sayer, 1794. unbound. Map, in two sheets. Copper plate engraving with original outline hand color. Each image measures 24.25" x 21.25". This large-scale wall map of Scotland depicts the country in intricate detail. Based on the work of Marcus Armstrong, this two-part map has a particular focus on military and post roads. Hand-colored lines divide and subdivide shires, mountains are depicted pictorially, and bodies of water such as lochs and firths are all labeled. At the upper right is a large inset of the "The Islands of Shetland or Zetland." The upper left corner contains a decorative title cartouche, and the map's lower left contains a key of "Distances of the Principal Stages on the Great Roads Leading from Edinburgh." The map is in good condition with some chips and stains in the margins . Minor offsetting throughout. Robert Laurie (c. 1755 - 1836) and James Whittle (1757-1818) were London-based map and atlas publishers active in the late 18th and early 19th century. Their firm combined Laurie's engraving skills with Whittle's social contacts and print sales experience. Together, they published numerous maps and atlases, often enlisting prominent cartographers such as Kitchin, Faden, Jefferys and others to update and modify their plates. This large map is an impressive example of their work.

He reached London in February 1755, and in the following year published his [above work] which owed its origin to the suggestion of Fothergill.

        Engravings, Explaining the Anatomy of the Bones, Muscles, and Joints

      Edinburgh: Printed by John Paterson, 1794. 1st Edition . Hardcover. Very Good. 4to - over 9¾ - 12" tall. 4to (261x204 mm). [8], xxii, [2], 191 pp., including typographical title (old ownership inscription), additional engraved title (soiled in margins) and errata leaf, 32 etched or engraved plates (including 4 duplicates in outline, 1 folding), and 2 engravings in text, little spotting and soiling, folding plate chipped along bottom margin w/o loss of image, few annotations and markings in weak pencil.

Provenance: Royal College of Surgeons, gift of C. Somerville-Large to the library (bookplate to inner cover). A very good copy with bright, clean plates. Collated complete. ---- <br><br>Heirs of Hippocrates 1187; Russell, British Anatomy 60; Wellcome II, p.137. -<br><br>FIRST EDITION. Encouraged by an artistic mother, John Bell had received early training in drawing. He was one of the first to apply anatomical teachings to surgery. From 1786-1799 he was Scotland&#39;s premier teacher of surgical anatomy, and his anatomical writings and illustrations were geared to the needs of the operative surgeon. Bell&#39;s atlas of the bones, muscles, and joints, illustrated mostly with his own engravings and etchings after his own paintings, represented a new, more realistic and less idealized style of anatomical illustration. Bell&#39;s illustrations are some of the most striking in the entire literature, although not to everyone&#39;s taste: "Certainly they have the immediacy of drawings made in the dissecting rooms of late Georgian Edinburgh. Some are quite gruesome and even perverted ... In their context they are admirable..."(Roberts & Tomlinson, p. 491). With some of the most striking illustrations in the entire medical literature

        RATIONAL RECREATIONS IN WHICH THE PRINCIPLES OF NUMBERS AND NATURAL PHILOSOPHY ARE CLEARLY AND COPIOUSLY ELUCIDATED, BY A SERIES OF EASY, ENTERTAINING, INTERESTING EXPERIMENTS. AMONG WHICH ARE ALL THOSE COMMONLY PERFORMED WITH THE CARDS

      London, printed for E. Law and Son; and G. G. and J. Robinson, 1794.. 4 volumes in bound in 2, complete set, 4th edition corrected, 1794. 8vo, 220 x 130 mm, 8½ x 5¼ inches, 65 folding engraved illustrations, pages: (4), xvi, 267; (4), xii, 280; (4), xii, 296; (4), xvi, 367, rebound in half leather over marbled sides, gilt rules and lettering to spine. The spine of the second volume should read "VOL. III & IV" but the binder has omitted to stamp "& IV", on the second volume, also the leather around the title has lightened slightly, a couple of pages slightly dusty, very occasional slight fingermark, light brown staining to 2 lower margins, small ink spot to 1 lower margin, occasional very pale browning to margins, 16 small ink notes (1 or 2 words written above the text), small closed tear to 1 margin, neatly repaired, small hole in 1 page with loss of page number, small chip to 1 fore-edge, fore-edge margin to 3 plates browned, inner margin browned on 1 plate, very pale offsetting on a few plates, tiny hole in 1 plate margin. Bindings tight and firm. A very good sturdy set. The contents of each volume are set out on the half-titles, Volume I: Arithmetical and Mechanical Experiments; Volume II: Experiments in Optics, Chromatics and Acoustics; Volume III: Electrical and Magnetical Experiments; Volume IV: Experiments in Pneumatics, Hydrology, and Pyrotechnics. With an Appendix of Miscellaneous Recreations. This Appendix (pages 175-295), contains the conjuring, magic and card tricks, "Several of the Recreations in this Appendix have, in fact, but little relation to experimental philosophy, especially those that depend on a dextrous manoeuvre; but as experiments of this kind are commonly found in books of mathematical recreations, it seemed requisite to insert some of the most entertaining among them at the end of this treatise" (author&#39;s note). See Toole Stott, A Bibliography of English Conjuring 1581-1876, page 137 No. 392. For the fireworks section (pages 127-171), see Chris Philip, A Bibliography of Firework Books, page 73, No. H110.2-5. Philip points out that Hooper states that much of this work stems from Guyot (Nouvelles Recreations Physiques et Mathematiques - 1786). "We shall here add the description of a new method of imitating artificial fireworks, which appears to be the invention of the ingenious M. Guyot" (Volume IV page 156).

        Elements of Mineralogy. Second Edition, with Considerable Improvements and Additions.

      J. Nichols for P. Elmsly, London 1794 - 2 Volumes. 1794-1796. 8vo (210x130 mm). xxxi, [2:blank], 510 pp.; [4], v-xvi, [2:errata], [2:blank], 529, [2:blank] pp., including half-titles, 6 folding tables, some light scattered foxing and browning (heavier to endpapers and pastedowns). Contemporary full leather (minor wear to edges), spine with red morocco labels gilt (renewed for vol. 2). A fine, broad margined copy. ---- Ferguson I, 472; Cole 717; Partington 3:662; Sinkankas 3430; DSB VII, 388-89. - SECOND EDITION. First published in 1784, "the first systematic work on the subject in English" (Ferguson). The revised second edition reflects Kirwan's abandonment of the phlogiston theory. It is much expanded, featuring the Leskean cabinet of 7331 mineral specimens. Kirwan's work was the first systematic treatise on mineralogy in English. Viewing mineralogy as a branch of chemistry, Kirwan described minerals by their chemical composition, combined with the Wernerian method of using external features and properties as a means of identification (Sinkankas 3430).

        THIRD CONGRESS OF THE UNITED STATES...AN ACT TO AMEND THE ACT INTITULED "AN ACT TO ENABLE THE OFFICERS AND SOLDIERS OF THE VIRGINIA LINE ON CONTINENTAL ESTABLISHMENT, TO OBTAIN TITLES TO CERTAIN LANDS LYING NORTH WEST OF THE RIVER OHIO, BETWEEN THE MIAMI AND SCIOTA [caption title]

      Philadelphia. 1794.. [2]pp. Single folio sheet. Old fold lines. Minor soiling. Very good. An act which adds provisos to an act granting lands to members of the Virginia line, allowing them to pass warrants on Ohio lands to their heirs, and locates the grants between the Scioto and Miami Rivers. It is followed by "An Act making Appropriations for Certain Purposes therein expressed," which grants monies for naval armament and other similar expenses. "Approved - June the ninth 1794," and signed in print by Speaker of the House Frederick Augustus Muhlenberg, President of the Senate Pro Tempore Ralph Izard, and President George Washington. Variant states of other acts of the Third Congress are known, and this issue is that which also has the printed lines, "Deposited among the Rolls in the Office of the Secretary of State" and "Secretary of State," and signed in manuscript by the second Secretary of State, Edmund Randolph. Edmund Randolph became the second Secretary of State on Jan. 2, 1794, succeeding Thomas Jefferson, who resigned at the end of 1793. He continued the practice begun in the First Congress of the Secretary of State signing a small number of "official" copies of Congressional acts for distribution to the States and important government officials. After the Third Congress, official acts were no longer signed in manuscript by the Secretary of State. EVANS 27877. W14562.

        A Description and Historical Account, of the Places Now the Theatre of War in the Low Countries, Viz Charlemont, Givet, Arras, St. Omer, Bethune embellished with a Frontispiece, and Plans of those Places the Most Remarkable for their Fortifications. The Fourth Edition.

      London: For J. Moore and N. Stanley, Purchasers of the Copy Right, 1794 - Octavo (205 × 129 mm). Contemporary red goatskin, title gilt to spine, rolled bands, sun-in-splendour tools in the compartments, gilt panels to the boards, all edges gilt, marbled endpapers. A little rubbed and soiled, but still pleasing, light toning, small piece missing torn from the corner of second plate, no loss of image, overall a very good copy. Double-page frontispiece and 15 similar plates. Uncommon and attractive fortification study, this fourth edition issued in the same year as the self-published first edition. "That part of Flanders having frequently been disputed by the various European powers, the author conceives that an undertaking like this will not be unacceptable to the public, particularly at a time when that country exhibits nothing but incampments, sieges, blockades, daily skirmishes, and frequent battles" (To the Public). Astley earned great renown as an equestrian artist and theatrical manager. He had served with General Elliott's regiment of light horse on the continent, distinguishing himself at the battles of Emsdorf and Friedburg. Having obtained a discharge he opened an exhibition of horsemanship in an open field in Lambeth, his only horse being his regimental charger given to him by Elliott. He opened a succession of theatres in London and Paris during the 1770s and 80s, but the French Revolution disrupted his performances in Paris, his amphitheatre being turned into a barracks, so he returned to London and rejoined the army, serving with distinction under the duke of York. With the patronage of the duke and the prince of Wales he was permitted to call his new theatre, opened 1794, Astley's Royal Amphitheatre. The present work is dedicated to the duke.

      London; Printed In The Year Of Christ. 1794. Full leather. 8vo. 68; 108 pages. 22 cm. First edition. Two volumes bound together: &#147;Book the first. Wrote under the direction of the Lord God, and published by His sacred command; it being the first sign of warning for the benefit of all nations. Containing, with other great and remarkable things, not revealed to any other person on earth, the restoration of the Hebrews to Jerusalem, by the year 1798: under their revealed prince and prophet. &#148; / &#147;A revealed knowledge of the prophecies & times, particularly of the present time, the present war, and the prophecy now fulfilling. The year of the world 5913. Book the second. Containing, with other great and remarkable things, not revealed to any other person on earth, the sudden and perpetual fall of the Turkish, German, and Russian empires, wrote under the direction of the Lord God, and published by his sacred command, it being a second sign of warning for the benefit of all nations, by the man that will be revealed to the Hebrews as their prince and prophet&#148;. Volume 1 signed on page 68: London, 20th of the month called September, 1794, Richard Brothers; volume 2 signed on page 108: Richard Brothers ... London ... 20th of the month called February, 1795. Two volumes constituting the major work of Richard Brothers, the &#147;founder of Anglo Israelism; born Dec. 25, 1757, at Placentia, Newfoundland; died at London Jan. 25, 1824. &#133; Brothers described himself as the &#145;nephew of the Almighty, &#146; because he considered that he was descended from one of the brothers of Jesus, and claimed that on Nov. 17, 1795, he would be revealed as the prince of the Hebrews and ruler of the world. Before that date, however, he had been removed to a lunatic asylum, where he wrote his &#145;Revealed Knowledge of the Prophecies&#146; (1794) , &#145;A Description of the New Jerusalem&#146; (1801) , and &#145;The New Covenant Between God and His People&#146; (a posthumous work, 1830) . Brothers seems to have been the first person to claim that the English are descendants of the Lost Ten Tribes; and his views are still referred to with respect by the adherents of Anglo-Israelism. His &#145;Description of the New Jerusalem&#146; contains a series of plates of the various officials of the new kingdom which was to be restored in Palestine under his leadership. These officials are all dressed in the court costume of George III. &#148; (1906 Jewish Encyclopedia) . Later full leather binding, with pastedown red leather gilt title on spine, decorative marbled boards over leather. Subjects: Bible - Prophecies - Early works to 1800. Prophets - England. Prophecies (Occultism) . Jews - Restoration. Private revelations. Brothers, Richard, 1757-1824 - Prophecies. Bible - Prophecies.

        An Accurate Map of Great Britain, France & Ireland, with Part of Spain, Germany, Denmark &c. Showing at One View the True Bearing and Horizontal Distance, of any Place within 700 Miles of London; Drawn from the Best Authorities

      London: Laurie & Whittle, 1794. unbound. Map. Engraving with hand coloring.. Image measures 20 1/8" x 20 1/8". This unusual yet beautiful hemispherical projection of Western Europe is centered on London, such that the compass bearings are drawn as straight lines. The map has a 700 mile radius that encompasses the Faroe Islands, Bergen in Norway, Munich in Germany, Parma in Italy, the northern coasts of Majorca and Minorca, and Galicia in Spain. Countries, counties, and cities are all labeled. The map also features lovely pastel hand-coloring, with England colored a vibrant pink that stands out markedly against pale green France. In fact, the latter country seems almost to fade into the water, another possible element of the map&#39;s colonial-era image of British supremacy. An annotation in the lower left corner attests to the map&#39;s accuracy. The map is in good condition with very minor tears and wear to the edges of the sheet, not affecting the image. Small stain on the bottom border and very minor foxing. Robert Laurie (c. 1755 - 1836) and James Whittle (1757-1818) were London-based map and atlas publishers active in the late 18th and early 19th century. Their firm combined Laurie%u2019s engraving skills with Whittle%u2019s social contacts and print sales experience. Together, they published numerous maps and atlases, often enlisting prominent cartographers such as Kitchin, Faden, Jefferys and others to update and modify their plates. This unusual map is a fascinating example of their work.
