[Ritson, Joseph]; Bewick, Thomas (illustrator)
London: Printed for T. Egerton, Whitehall, and J. Johnson, St. Pauls-Church-Yard, 1795. Near fine.. Original full polished mottled calf (volume one sympathetically rebacked with original spine laid down), gilt-ruled boards, gilt-stamped spines, red goatskin spine labels. Marbled endpapers, brown silk ribbon markers. Illustrated by Bewick throughout with headpieces, tailpieces, and vignettes in black and white. Lacking half titles. One page of ads after table of contents in volume II, errata at end of volume II. [2], cxx [6], 220, [4] pages. Old dealer description and late 19th-century bookplate on front pastedown. Faint infrequent foxing. First edition of this important early collection of sources on Robin Hood - and the first publication to create a "literary life" of the figure from the consolidated folklore. One of the earliest publications to anthologize the ballads, histories, romances, and plays on the theme of Robin Hood, this book went a step further and turned those disparate elements into a single coherent image of the noble outlaw we know today: "The impact of Ritson's book as a single entity embracing both gentrified life and bold deeds was a major stage in the long development and variation of the outlaw hero" (Knight). Arguably the most influential publication on the celebrated English outlaw.

CHRETIEN, Gilles-Louis.
Paris, 1795. Small round aquatint portrait (74 mm diameter, the image itself 55 mm), a fine impression in very good condition; (later?) metal frame. The present aquatint was produced by physionotrace, 'the first system invented to produce multiple copies of a portrait, invented in 1786 by Gilles-Louis Chrétien (1774-1811). In his apparatus a profile cast by a lamp onto a glass plate was traced by an operator using a pointer connected, by a system of levers like a pantograph, to an engraving tool moving over a copper plate. The aquatint and roulette finished engraved intaglio plate, usually circular and small (50 mm), with details of features and costume, could be inked and printed many times. One description mentions that a sitting could take as little as six minutes and within four days a dozen impressions could be delivered, hand-colored if desired, with the copper plate, for fifteen francs ... 'Physionotrace was very popular in France, where it had a detrimental effect on miniature painting and engraving. At the Salon of 1793, one hundred physionotrace portraits where exhibited. Three years later that number increased to six hundred. The physionotrace portrait replaced the miniature and was used as frontispiece illustrations in a number of books, but it was not until the advent of photography that the portrait was truly democratized' (Photoconservation.com, sub Printing Processes). Thomas Jefferson had his portrait done in Paris by physionotrace in 1789 (now lost, though a print was made in 1801: see Alfred L. Bush, The Life Portraits of Thomas Jefferson, p. 9).

KOCKERS, George.
Large engraving of a meeting during the first session of the first democratically elected parliament of (most of) the Netherlands. The Batavian Republic was the new revolutionary state which replaced the United Republic of the Netherlands in 1795. The first session of the democratically elected parliament lasted from March 1796 to August 1797 and had the important task of writing a constitution.The print shows most of the room in which the parliament convened: a former ballroom of the old Stadtholder which was used as a chamber by the parliament up until 1992. Most of the 126 members, wearing a black sash with the word "representant" (representative), are depicted. Seated in the large chair at the left, is the chairman accompanied by several secretaries. To the right of the chairman's dais, is the raised stand from which a representative addresses the assembly. Apparently, the person standing next to him is the Frisian farmer Dirk Cornelis Kuiken (1746-1811). The boxes between the pilasters, opposite the chairman, were for the use of important visitors and the large boxes at the sides (one of which is shown) were for the use of common citizens with a small section (at the top left of the print) for the use of journalists. A representative at the bottom has a book in front of him titled "Regten des volks" (rights of the people), possibly a translation of Thomas Paine's Rights of man from 1791.With a few creases and tears at the extremities; a very good copy.l Muller, Historieplaten 5455a; Atlas van Stolk 5373.

Most copies have title changed to "Monumens arabes, persans et turcs". This copy is inscribed by Reinaud to the Duc de Luynes, another famous French antiquarian.The French antiquarian and diplomat Pierre Louis Jean Casimir, prince de Blacas d'Aulps (1770-1839) acted as prime minister to Louis XVIII when he succeeded Napoleon in 1814 and later served as French ambassador to the Holy See. Remaining in Rome for many years, he provided Ingres with a commission and became a patron to the German classicist Theodor Panofka. He worked closely with Italian archaeologist Carlo Fea in the excavation of the Roman Forum, supported the orientalist Jean-François Champollion and created the "Musée Egyptien" within the Louvre. In 1866, his descendants sold most of his collection to the British Museum, where it remains to this day.The plates show beautiful specimens of Arabic calligraphical art (including many seals). Some browning and staining throughout. From the library of the Ducs de Luynes from the Château of Dampierre with bookplate to pastedowns.l Ibrahim-Hilmy II, 159. Gay 3592 bis (variant title).

GODWIN, William)
Printed for J. Johnson. [1795]. Half title. Disbound. (4), 86pp. ESTC T31251. An important radical pamphlet, written in defiance of the infamous Grenville and Pitt Bills of 1795. Godwin was steadfast in his opposition to the Acts, both of which were designed, in the name of national security, to suppress political agitation and limit the potential for civil disobedience. Godwin was concerned that the legislation would stand in the way of reform, and constituted a mendacious attempt to stymie the liberal agenda. He envisaged widespread abuse of the new laws, surmising 'the spirit of this bill is evidently to put an engine into the hands of ministers, calculated for their use in every imaginable emergency. There is no case to which this bill may not be stretched, present or future, definite or indefinite, real or fictitious, that it may not be made to include'. He concludes: 'These bills are an unwilling homage, that the too eager advocates of authority pay to the rising genius of freedom'. This remains a scarce item, only one copy of which has appeared in ABPC in the last thirty years. From the library of Michael Foot.

Octavo (8 1/2" x 5 1/4") bound in fill leather with decorative edges in gilt with lettering to spine in red and black labels. (Howes: W581; Sabin 104831) First edition. Rev. William Winterbotham (15 December 1763 – 31 March 1829) was a British Baptist minister and a political prisoner. He wrote some books introducing general information about China and the United States.

[More, Sarah]
Bath; London: S. Hazard; J. Marshall and R. White, [1795]. First edition. From the Cheap Repository. 24 pages in self-wraps, stitched at spine. Final leaf partially detached but holding. Some toning and soiling, particularly to page edges. The only copy on the market, ESTC reports 10 copies of this scarce tract at only 6 libraries (2 of those in North America). Working alongside her sister, the influential Bluestocking Hannah More, Sarah More helped produce The Cheap Repository Tracts as means for spreading religious education and moral lessons to people of all classes. Frequently focused on the importance of faith and the need for grace, the sisters also paid close attention to the role gender played in humans' relationships to each other and to God. The Two Soldiers is no exception. Wells and Clark, a pair of young soldiers on leave stop in a town famous for its ale, a product which has "introduced beggary, and famine amongst all the Wives and Children in the neighboring cottages." The two partake too heavily, leading to a night of debauchery; and Wells later vows to avoid all alcohol and merry-making because it strips men of "Reason, which is the gift of God," and because soldiers "should be particularly careful to keep our Accounts between God and our souls" since death could come at any moment. Clark makes the opposite decision. As the soldiers make their way back to their unit, they are robbed of their money; and while Clark turns to alcohol for comfort, Wells turns to God and decides that in asking divine forgiveness, he may also find human forgiveness.
