Greek geographer and traveler... traveled widely in Greece, Macedonia, Asia, Palestine and Egypt.... Some of what he describes he actually saw himself, some he read in book that may have been as much as 300 years old at the time he wrote, and some of his information he gleaned from talking to the natives of the regions he visited... the material he preserved in his work from the ancient writings and his own observations, and the information he picked up, make his work a rich source of information about religious cults and mythology; it provides the most complete clue existing to the monuments of art and architecture of ancient Greece; it contains historical data that might otherwise have been lost; and its topographical notices are a primary source for scholars and archaeologists. Heinrich Schliemann..., discoverer of the rich Circle Graves of Mycenae, was led to the site from reading Pausanias." (Avery. New Century Classical Handbook, p. 829).& Graesse V, p. 178; Hoffman II, p. 51 (printed for Edward Jeffrey).

        Winter

      London: Published by C.Knight, 1794. Hand-coloured stipple engraving, printed on laid paper. Fair condition with some overall light soiling, minor foxing, mild surface abrasions and patches of adhesive residue in the margins. Slight discolouration of the paper due to age. 17 3/4 x 22 3/8 inches. 18 7/8 x 24 inches. A fine print of a group of gentlemen indulging in the popular leisurely pursuit of ice-skating on a cold winter's day. This charming plate was engraved by the accomplished French draughtsman and print seller Victor Marie Picot after a Loutherbourg painting entitled, "A Winter Morning, with a Party Skating". The skaters in this lively image appear to be truly enjoying themselves. There is a discernible comic element as some of the clumsy skaters brace themselves from falling to the ice while other more agile participants engage in fancy skating tricks. On the side of the pond congregate groups of spectators in the process of getting fitted for skates in anxious anticipation of joining in the amusement. Encircled by the type of romantic landscape for which Loutherbourg was renowned, the scene is endowed with an almost theatrical quality, which was undoubtedly influenced by his experience as a scene painter. The son of a court painter in Darmstadt, the versatile artist Philippe Jacques Loutherbourg was born in Fulda, Germany and was a pupil of J. H. Tischbein and Carle Vanloo and Francis Casanova the elder in Paris. His romantic landscapes, battle scenes, portraits, and biblical subjects were highly esteemed and lauded by influential colleagues such as Diderot. He frequently exhibited at the Salon and became a venerated member of the Académie Royale in 1767. In 1771, he moved to England, where he was employed as the principal scenery designer at London's Drury Lane Theatre. His creative and minutely detailed sets revolutionized the genre of scene painting, and he soon began dabbling in costume design. Loutherbourg once again astounded contemporaries in 1782 with his pioneering invention of the 'Eidophusikon,' a novel variety of moving panorama that was accompanied by music. His substantial and varied oeuvre also included book illustrations and a series of aquatints of British scenery that was published in 1801 and 1805. Aside from a brief trip to Switzerland in 1782, he remained in London for the duration of his life and became heavily engrossed in mysticism. Cf. Dictionary of National Biography; cf. Benezit, Dictionnaire des Peintres, Sculpteurs, Dessinateurs, et Graveurs, vol 10, p. 892.

        NOTES ON THE STATE OF VIRGINIA

      Philadelphia: Printed for Mathew Carey..., 1794.. [4],336pp. plus folding table and folding map. Contemporary tree calf, spine gilt, leather label. Minor staining to boards. Slight loss to corner of titlepage, with loss of the S in "NOTES." Minor staining to last leaf, otherwise internally clean. Some minor loss along fold of map; two other tears skillfully repaired with tissue. Overall, about very good. The second American edition of Jefferson's famous work, and the first American edition to contain a map. This is the only book- length work by Jefferson to be published in his lifetime, and has been called "one of America's first permanent literary and intellectual landmarks." It was largely written in 1781 and first published in Paris, in French, in 1785, then published in English in London in 1787. Written in the form of answers to questions about Virginia, the book supplies a description of the geography, with an abundance of supporting material and unusual information. As J.M. Edelstein notes: "Jefferson wrote about things which interested him deeply and about which he knew a great deal; the NOTES, therefore, throws a fascinating light on his tastes, curiosities, and political and social opinions." The map which accompanies this edition was executed by Samuel Lewis and depicts Virginia in considerable detail. The story of the creation of this book and its publishing history is an interesting one. It is told fully by Millicent Sowerby in her catalogue of Jefferson's library, where it occupies some thirty pages in small type. This edition includes appendices containing Charles Thomson's notes on Jefferson's original text, his "Draught of a Fundamental Constitution for the Commonwealth of Virginia" and "An Act for Establishing Religious Freedom." The table describes Indian tribes of Virginia. A nice copy of this important work, complete with map. HOWES J78. SABIN 35898. CLARK I:262. SOWERBY, JEFFERSON'S LIBRARY 4167.

        Sketches and Hints on Landscape Gardening. Collected from designs and observations now in the possession of the different noblemen and gentlemen, for whose use they were originally made. The whole tending to establish fixed principles in the art of laying out ground

      London: printed by W. Bulmer & Co., sold by J. & J. Boydell and G. Nicol, [1794]. Oblong folio. (10 1/4 x 14 inches). 10 hand-coloured aquatints engravings (1 folding, 3 double-page), each with one or more overslips, and 6 aquatint plates printed in black with a single tint added (4 with one or more overslips), 2 wood-engraved illustrations, 1 wood-engraved tailpiece, bound without the half title. Expertly bound to style in 18th- century half russia over contemporary marbled paper-covered boards, the flat spine divided into six compartments by fillets and a Greek-key roll, red morocco lettering-piece in the second compartment, the others alternately decorated with a large centrally-placed vase and flower spray tool, with foliate cornerpieces and a large centrally-placed goblet and birds tool with foliate cornerpieces, gilt edges. The first of Repton's three great works on landscape gardening. Humphry Repton was the main successor to Lancelot "Capability" Brown as an improver of grounds for the English gentry in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth century. He was particularly noted for his Red Books. 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.

        A Chart of the Gulf of Florida or New Bahama Channel, commonly called the Gulf Passage, between Florida, the Isle of Cuba, & the Bahama Islands: from the journals, observations and draughts of Mr. Chas. Roberts, master of the Rl. Navy, compared with the surveys of Mr. George Gauld &ca

      London: printed for W. Faden, 1 August 1794. Copper-engraved map, hand- coloured in outline. Good condition, with small neat repairs to fold and upper and lower margin, old light creasing. 24 x 30 1/4 inches. A spectacular and rare sea-chart of southern Florida, the Keys, the north coast of Cuba and the Bahamas. The British Admiralty assigned George Gauld, a Scots-born surveyor, the task of charting the difficult waters off the Gulf Coast of West Florida. Between 1764 and 1781 Gauld mapped an area that extended from New Orleans to the western coast of modern-day Florida. Recognizing the importance of his work to all those who travelled in the area, Gauld readily shared his work with scientific societies in America. During the Revolutionary War, Gauld was forced to suspend his work in the Dry Tortugas and Florida Keys due to attacks by American privateers, and in 1781, he was taken prisoner at the Siege of Pensacola. He was subsequently taken to Havana and then New York, before being repatriated to England, where he died shortly afterwards. Cf. Ware, John D. George Gauld, Surveyor and Cartographer of the Gulf Coast (Gainesville, Fla.: Univ. of Florida, 1982).

        A General Plan for laying out Towns and Townships

      London,: n.d., but, 1794.. Octavo, large folding plate of plans with early handcolouring in red; bound in original heavy pink card wrappers, a bit faded, with early manuscript title to front. Very scarce first edition of this model for the planning and building of an ideal colonial settlement under British rule, published in 1794 as a guide for free settlers and government officials alike. Although not specifically contemplating colonial town-planning in New South Wales, its date makes this a significant publication for the laying-out of early outlying settlements such as the so-called Macquarie towns along the Hawkesbury River, or the more ambitious distant settlements such as Newcastle in the north or Bathurst and Orange to the west. Sharp's text formed part of a very small canon of town-planning literature that would have been available to the colonists. At a later date issues of urban design were more in the forefront of colonial planning, so that Colonel Light's Adelaide, for example, had a grid of streets long before it had a colonist.Sharp (1735-1813), a prominent abolitionist, is also remembered as the tutor to Omai, and took an active interest in all of the British colonies. He firmly believed that better social conditions for slaves but also for all of the lower classes including convicts would result in a more equitable society. As a result, this work is of considerable architectural and town planning interest as it reflects a sort of ideal city, a hybrid of military planning and civil law, that clearly sheets back to earlier classical and particularly Roman ideas. The work dates from a period in which such proposals were actively solicited and keenly studied by officials and settlers alike, chiefly because the founding and building of entire cities from scratch was fundamental to British colonial policy. Sharp himself considered that his great achievement was the founding of Freetown in Sierra Leone in 1787, established by freed African slaves sent from England. Sharp's interest in the Pacific was encouraged by the time he spent with Omai: while the famous Raitaean was staying with Joseph Banks he was taught the rudiments of writing by Sharp. He explained the method he used in his An English alphabet: for the use of foreigners (1786). The record shows that Sharp tutored Omai regularly for a month, but by 6 April 'Omai was so taken up with engagements that I could have no more opportunity of giving him lessons, which were but fifteen in all'. Just over a decade after Omai returned to Huahine with Cook, Sharp published An English alphabet, probably in anticipation of a need for such a work in the spread of the gospel in the South Seas.A second edition of this General Plan for laying out Towns and Townships was printed in 1804. Despite its evident Australian interest we have traced only microfilm or electronic copies in Australian libraries.Goldsmiths', 16046; Sabin, 79821.

        A Narrative of the Campaign in India which terminated in the war with Tippoo Sultan in 1792

      London: W. Bulmer for G. Nicol, 1794. 4to. (10 5/8 x 8 3/8 inches). 9 engraved maps and plates (some folding). Full contemporary tree calf, covers bordered in gilt, spine richly gilt in compartments, red morocco lettering piece in the second. A fine copy in a lovely contemporary binding of an important account of British India and the third Anglo- Mysore war. Alexander Dirom here gives a largely first-hand account of the final campaign in the Third Anglo-Mysore War, including the seige of Seringapatam, and covering a period between the spring of 1791 and the beginning of March 1792 when Tipu Sultan sued for peace with General Cornwallis, and eventually surrendered his two sons as hostages. Alexander Dirom, who served as Deputy Adjutant-General during the war was well placed to provide an informed account of events, and apparently compiled this work, with the help of fellow officers, on the voyage home. The first edition was published in 1793; the present second edition appeared in the following year. The work was admired by Lowndes: "A very amusing and entertaining detail [sic.] of the operations which closed the late Indian war in 1792." This fine copy with provenance to the grandson of an important British figure in India, Major General Edward Robert Clive (1725-1774). Also known as "Clive of India," he is credited with helping to establish the military and political supremacy of the East India Company in Southern India and Bengal, securing India, and the wealth that followed, for the British crown.

        An Accurate Map of the Islands and Channels between China and New Holland

      London,: R. Wilkinson, 1 January, 1794.. Engraved map, 265 x 338mm., contemporary handcolouring, a lovely impression, early manuscript "42" in ink to lower right margin. A second marvellous map, the companion to Wilkinson's map of the east coast of Australia. This map of South-East Asia is rather usefully designed to show the islands between Canton at top left and the Torres Strait in the bottom right, giving an overview of the waters which in the 1790s were seeing the beginnings of what would become the established China/India to New Holland trade, with its famous waterways such as the Straits of Sunda and Malacca, and the Sulu Sea. In fact, as an overview of this burgeoning trade, the map could scarcely be bettered.The map was originally included in Robert Wilkinson's A General Atlas, being A Collection of Maps of the World (1794).

        Histoire philosophique et politique des etablissements et du commerce des Europeens dans les deux (10 volume set)

      Berry, 3e annee de l&#39;ere re?publicaine, 1794-01-01. Hardcover. Very Good. 10 volume set. Engraved Frontispieces. 8vo. (20 cm) Aquamarine boards. Very good bindings. Covers generally very good, with a few minor scuffs. Clean, unmarked pages. A quality set. This edition was printed during the Revolutionary period. <br> Better known as dâ&#128;&#153;Histoire des deux Indes, Raynalâ&#128;&#153;s work was extremely influential in late 18th century enlightenment thought. Raynal covered the history of European companies in eastern India and the New World, showing the influence of the great geographical discoveries of civilization. The Histoire covered the Portuguese colonies in the East, as well as the British, French, Spanish and the Dutch colonies. Raynal discusses the European conquest of America, highlighting the atrocities of the slave trade on the coast of Guinea and the British and French colonies in North America. The Historie also contains a series of essays on religion, politics, war, trade, moral philosophy, etc. (Most of the philosophy being the work of Diderot.) In the third edition, which was banned by Louis XVIâ&#128;&#153;s regime for its depiction of Hispaniola, Raynal proclaims his intent "To advocate humanity, truth, freedom!" Napoleon was said to have a disciple of Raynal, and took Lâ&#128;&#153;Histoire with him during his Egyptian campaigns.

Followed by the second volume, with a red-tinted engraved frontis (of a naked male surrounded by signs of the zodiac - there is also a similar image of a naked female after p.11). The printed title page states the printers as: "London: Printed by George Sidney, Green Arbour Court, for the Author, and sold at the British Directory-Office, Ave-Maria-Lane; and by Champante and Whitrow, Jewry-street, Aldgate." The engravings of the male and female are by "Dodd Delin. Prattent Sculp ". Again the text is clean (except for some toning to the index) and there are a further 11 full page red-tinted engravings (numbered 30 - 40) of human physiology. Ebenezer Sibly (1751-1800) was an English physician, astrologer and writer on the occult. Sibly is celebrated for the natal horoscope he cast of the United States of America, published in 1787 and still cited. As a student of medicine, he became interested in the theories on animal magnetism of Anton Mesmer, joining Mesmer&#39;s Harmonic Philosophical School. Sibley also taught himself the basics of occultism. In 1784 he joined the Freemasons, and the dedication to the 1790 edition of A new and complete illustration of the occult sciences was to "the Ancient and Honourable fraternity of "Free and Accepted Masons". Four years later, he dated the dedication of his new edition of Culpeper&#39;s English Physician And Complete Herbal "To Thomas Dunckerly, Provincial Grand Master... in the year of Masonry 5798". He published the New and Complete Illustration of the Occult Sciences in four volumes, 1784. In the same year Sibley also completed A Key to the Physic and the Occult Sciences, a systematic statement of his occult philosophy. Like Mesmer, he suggested that the world was animated by a universal spirit, the operative agent in both astrology and healing work. This spirit works on matter and can be used by the magician for his purposes. This understanding would become standard for magical thought through the century and anticipates the more heralded work of Éliphas Lévi. Also included in the Key, published a supplement to the famous work on herbal medicine by Nicolas Culpepper. As an astrologer he is said to have used the Placidian system. As a student of alchemy, he translated Bernard of Treviso (the fountain allegory). Sibly wrote a book called Universal System of Natural History in 1794 in the book he claimed that the White Race was the first on earth he said: &#147;We must consider white as the stock whence all others have sprung, Adam and Eve and all their posterity, till the time of the deluge were white; in the first age of the world no black nation was to be found on the face of the earth.&#148; Sibly believed that no humans had reached Africa until after the dispersal from Babel, that the continents first inhabitants had been white and that Africans had become dark only as a result of the actions of the climate there over successive generations." - See Wikipedia / Gale Encyclopedia of Occultism & Parapsychology / Ars Quatuor Coronatorum, 24 (l911), 81-106. **** "...It is interesting to note that, once again, the ubiquitous Thomas Dunkerly, so important in the fortunes of many degrees in Freemasonry was also describing himself in 1793 as Grand Commander of the Society of Ancient Masons of the Diluvian Order of Royal Ark Mariners. It was Dunkerly who appointed one Brother Ebenezer Sibley, another man of considerable ability in several fields, as his Deputy. Shortly before Dunkerley&#39;s death it was Sibley who welcomed Lord Rancliffe as the next Grand Commander..." - Northants&HuntsMark - Royal Ark Mariners Degree **** Full title reads: Culpeper&#39;s English physician and compelete herbal : To which are now first added, upwards of one hundred additional herbs, with a display of their medicinal and occult properties, physically applied to the cure of all disorders incident to mankind. To which are annexed, rules for compounding medicine according to the true system of nature ; forming a complete family dispensatory, and natural system of physic / Beautified and enriched with engravings of upwards of four hundred and fifty different plants, and a set of anatomical figures. Illustrated with notes and observations, critical and explanatory. By E. Sibly. .

        Rare Official Land Grant Indenture, Ohio Company, Washington County

      Ohio - USA, 1794. This is an original Ohio Company deed, granting 100 acre of land to Benjamin Dana and his heirs in Southern Ohio - known as the Donation Tract. Signed by the officers of the Ohio Company, Rufus Putnam, Manasseh Cutler, Griffin Greene and Robert Oliver, dated 19 February 1794, Washington County, sealed and delivered in the presence of Thomas Lord. Single page, measuring approximately 13 inches x 8 inches (33cm x 20cm). In very good and original condition. Extremely Rare. The Ohio Company was organized by officers who served in General Washington&#39;s Army, and was charted by Congress in 1787. The following year the company opened the first settlement in the Northwest Territory at Marietta, Ohio. The signatures attached to the indenture are those of officers who served with distinction in the American Revolution. The Donation Tract was a land tract in southern Ohio that was established by the Congress late in the 18th century to buffer Ohio Company lands against Indians. Congress gave 100-acre lots to men who settled on the land. This marked the first time that federal land was given without charge to specified settlers, predating the more famous Homestead Act of 1862 by seventy years. . Signed.

        CHART OF THE COAST OF AMERICA FROM CAPE HATERAS [sic] TO CAPE ROMAN FROM THE ACTUAL SURVEYS OF DL. DUNBIBIN Esq

      [Boston: John Norman, 1794].. Copper-engraved sea chart, on two joined sheets. Overall sheet size: 21 1/4 x 33 inches. Very good. An early issue of the earliest American chart of the North Carolina coast. Wheat & Brun and others, speculate that the original version of this map was separately published in 1761, citing an advertisement in the September 14, 1761 BOSTON GAZETTE: "The Navigation on the Coast of North and South Carolina being very dangerous on account of the many Bars, Shoals, Sandbanks, Rocks, etc. The late Daniel Dunbibin, Esq. of North Carolina, has, at very great Expence and Labour, draughted the Sea Coast of both the Provinces in a large whole Sheet Chart of 33 inches by 23; together with all the Rivers, Bays, Inlets, Islands, Brooks, Bars, Shoals, Rocks, Soundings, Currents, &c. with necessary Directions to render the Navigation both easy and safe, and are much esteemed by the most expert Pilots...." No copy of this 1761 map is known to exist. It is believed, however, that John Norman re- used the original printing plate for this map, or closely copied a surviving example, when he published the first edition of his THE AMERICAN PILOT in 1791. This example of Norman&#39;s chart of the North Carolina coastline is present here in its third state (i.e. preceded by the 1761 first issue, and second issue copies from the 1791 and 1792 editions of Norman&#39;s pilot). This state can be discerned by the addition of "New Inlet" just north of Cape Fear. Additional issues were published through 1803. The American Revolution brought to an end Britain&#39;s leading role in the mapping of America. The task now fell to the American publishing industry, still in its infancy, but with first-hand access to the new surveys that were documenting the rapid growth of the nation. In particular, there was a need for nautical charts for use by the expanding New England commercial fleets. The first American marine atlas, Mathew Clark&#39;s A COMPLETE SET OF CHARTS OF THE COAST OF AMERICA, was published in Boston in 1790. Two of Clark&#39;s charts had been engraved by John Norman, who was inspired to launch his own enterprise. In January 1790, Norman published a notice in the BOSTON GAZETTE stating he was currently engraving charts of all the coast of America on a large scale. These were assembled and published as THE AMERICAN PILOT (Boston, 1791). Norman&#39;s PILOT, the second American marine atlas, indeed the second American atlas of any kind, marked an advance over the earlier work of Mathew Clark. New editions of the PILOT appeared in 1792 and 1794, and after John Norman&#39;s death, his son, William, brought out editions in 1794, 1798, 1801, and 1803. Despite the seemingly large number of editions, THE AMERICAN PILOT is one of the rarest of all American atlases, and one of the very few published during the 18th century. Wheat & Brun (pp.198-199) locate just ten complete copies for the first five editions: 1791 (Huntington, Harvard); 1792 (LC, Clements); 1794(1) (LC, JCB, Boston Public); 1794(2) (Yale); 1798 (LC, Boston Public).n.

Contemporary half calf, spine with red gilt lettered label. First edition. A fine large copy of Jacquin's attractive and rare monograph on the genus Oxalis, most of which are Cape species discovered by Thunberg (to whom the work is dedicated) and sent to the Schönbrunn Botanic Garden in Vienna. The excellent plates are good representatives of the 'Jacquin' style of Austrian botanical illustration. A total of 98 species are described and illustrated, 83 of which are native to the Cape of Good Hope. The beautiful plates were drawn and engraved by Johann Scharf. Nikolaus Joseph von Jacquin, a Dutchman of French origin, was the leading botanist of his day. He was appointed professor of botany and chemistry at the University of Vienna in 1763. He played a significant role in Viennese scientific and social life at the time and his years in Vienna were extraordinarily fruitful. In addition to his professorship, he was also the director of the Botanic Gardens. For his services and contributions to botany, he was knighted in 1774 and became a baron in 1806. He has been described as 'the Austrian Linnaeus'. Our copy has wide margins and a very crisp and clean interior, binding slightly worn. Provenance: Armorial bookplate of Corn. Henr. Âroy.

Giovanni Maria Cassini, Chierico Regolare Somasco fu geografo e cartografo, ma anche intagliatore di architetture e prospettive - uno dei migliori discepoli di Giovanni Battista Piranesi - Cassini fu uno degli ultimi sferografi italiani del Settecento ed i suoi globi ebbero una notevole diffusione, come pure questo "Nuovo Atlante Geografico". Incisione in rame, finemente colorata nei contorni, in ottimo stato di conservazione. An uncommon map, published in the 'Nuovo Atlante Geografico Universale', with a decorative title cartouche, by Giovanni Maria Cassini, a Somasco monk. He was geographer and cartographer but he was also good at engraving architectural items and perspectives ? he was one of the best disciples Giovanni Battista Piranesi had. Moreover, Cassini was one of the last artists to engrave spheres in the XVIII century and his globes were quite famous and widespread, and realized the most important Italian Atlas of the XVIII century; his maps always bear a cartouche, extremely rich in colours and details.

      London, T. Bensley [vol I], R. Taylor [vols II-IV] for the Author, [1794-] 1802-1809 [-1830]. 4 vols bound in two. Folio (423 x 259 mm). With engraved dedication leaf and 288 hand-coloured engraved plates; vol III without half-title, some occasional minor spotting to prelims and a few text leaves, a fine, clean copy in contemporary speckled calf by J. Clarke, rebacked preserving original spines, gilt edges. First edition, with the rare fourth volume, of Andrews' 'finest achievement ... noble in conception and impressive in execution' (Blunt). Andrews drew and engraved all his plates, wrote most of the text and, according to Dunthorne, even did his own colouring. This work exemplifies the 'erica-mania' that dominated English horticulture at the beginning of the nineteenth century. Numerous newly discovered South African species were being introduced through the enterprise of nurserymen like Lee and Kennedy, and several hundred species and varieties were available and in cultivation. This copy contains all the indexes, dedication, address, introduction, dissertation, list of heaths cultivated by Lee and Kennedy at the Vineyard Nursery in Hammersmith, systematical arrangements, etc. In common with other copies seen, the titlepage of volume IV is in fact the title from volume II with the number altered by hand. The work was published in parts, and volume IV appeared over a twenty-year period from 1810 to 1830. Few complete copies survive, and most sets comprise only the first three volumes, with occasionally a fragment of the fourth. Dunthorne 9; Great flower books, p 47; Johnston 674 (vols I-III only); Nissen BBI, 31; Stafleu and Cowan 134.

Edition originale. Par la Commission temporaire des Poids & Mesures républicaines, en exécution des Décrets de la Convention Nationale, 1 vol. in-8 reliure d'époque demi-basane à coins dos à 5 nerfs,Méthode : Chez le Citoyen Cointeraux ou chez le Citoyen Fuchs, Paris, s.d.

Dans le premier ouvrage, l'auteur expose clairement les embarras causés par la diversité antérieure des systèmes de mesure : "Avant la Révolution, j'étois Expert et Arpenteur juré : je sais donc pertinemment combien il existoit de mesures différentes dans les campagnes : qui croiroit que souvent il m'est arrivé de mesurer les fonds d'un même domaine avec plusieurs instruments ? Certains fonds de ce domaine dépendans d'une justice seigneuriale m'obligeoient à mesurer avec une toise plus courte : d'autres fonds du même domaine me soumettoient à un autre instrument plus long : quant à l'évaluation du produit, autre embarras : il falloit calculer non-seulement sur les mesures de superficie, mais encore sur celles de capacité, tantôt plus grandes, tantôt plus petites : c'étoit un galimathias horrible ; des opérations infinies : le moinde rapport coûtant trop et ruinant les cultivateurs, je me vis contraint de vendre ma charge d'expert, parce que je ne pouvois remédier à tant de maux".

Image measures 22.75" x 19.5", page including text measures 26.5" x 27 7/8". Beautiful and rare chart of the Atlantic including South America and parts of North America, Europe and Africa. Features lines of magnetic variation, or how much the compass deviates from true north. As explained in the two columns of pasted text, these observations are based upon the work of Dr. Edmond Halley in 1700 with additions in 1744. Other elements include two compass roses, extensive place names, and a note and depiction of fabled sea birds off the eastern coast of South America. The map was originally published by William Mount, John Mount and Thomas Page in "The English Pilot. The Fourth Book" circa 1750. This edition was reissued by William Mount II and James Davidson. Light offsetting. Expert repair to split along original centerfold. The "English Pilot" was a sea-chart atlas published in several editions from 1671 to 1803.
