        Autograph note signed.

      [Probably Philadelphia or Manhattan, ca 1794/1795]. - 54 x 116 mm. 1 p. A plain, unpresuming note that probably once accompanied a small hospitality gift, inscribed by one of the most powerful French statesmen of all time to a Founding Father of the United States, reading: "Presented to hon. M. Burr / by M. Talleyrand". The Frenchman's use of English appears to be a polite signal of deference to his American host, for Burr's French undoubtedly would have been more than sufficient to understand the same note in the international language of education and diplomacy, whereas Talleyrand's command of English is largely agreed to have been extremely limited (cf. Earl, p. 290). - Talleyrand's career straddled the Ancien régime, French Revolution and Restoration; he was successively a bishop, a revolutionary who assisted in the drafting of the Declaration of the Rights of Man, an exile in America, and later Foreign Minister to both Napoleon and his successor, the restored Bourbon king, Louis XVIII. Talleyrand had left revolutionary France just before the beginning of the Great Terror on a diplomatic mission to Britain, but earlier French exiles pressured Pitt to expel him to the Republic, where a warrant for his arrest had been issued in the meantime. "A return to France meant certain death, and most of the other countries of Europe were openly hostile to him for the part he had played in the early days of the Revolution. In mid-February, 1794, he booked a passage on the American ship 'William Penn'. He had made up his mind; the United States would be his refuge until such time as France returned to a normal, stable, and reasonable condition" (Earl, p. 282). In America, Talleyrand settled comfortably into the cosmopolitan society of Philadelphia, the federal capital and a haven for Gallic émigrés. Equipped with his reputation as well as with warm letters of recommendation to Washington, Benjamin Rush and the Hamilton family, the French exile found American drawing rooms open to him, and "from his April arrival until his visit to New York in June, 1794, Talleyrand was hardly ever without an invitation to dinner" (Earl, p. 289). One of his famous hosts was Aaron Burr, two years Talleyrand's junior and then serving as U.S. Senator representing New York. At his Richmond Hill estate in Manhattan, which he had purchased in 1794, Burr "maintained a liberal establishment, and exercised the hospitality which was then in vogue. Talleyrand, Volney, Louis Philippe, and other strangers of distinction, whom the French Revolution drove into exile, were [there] entertained with princely profusion and elegance" (Parton I, p. 154). Burr's biographer Parton reports that Talleyrand was among those with whom the Senator "became particularly intimate" (ibid.), and it is possible that Burr, who like Talleyrand had forsaken theology for politics, sensed in his guest a kindred instinct for nimbly "doubling one's choices" in that ever-shifting world. Indeed, Alexander Hamilton's biographer Chernow describes Burr as an "agile opportunist", a "chameleon who evaded clear-cut positions on most issues and was a genius at studied ambiguity" - a portrait recreated in the words put into his mouth by a recent broadway hit: "Talk less, smile more - don't let them know what you're against or what you're for." The loose friendship between the two statesmen, both notorious womanizers, lasted throughout the Frenchman's American exile: as late as 1796, Parton writes, Talleyrand was among the notabilities invited to a dinner party which Burr gave at his Philadelphia residence for the Mohawk chief Joseph Brant (cf. p. 204). - When the political climate in France changed after the fall of Robespierre and the threat of the guillotine receded, Talleyrand petitioned to the National Convention for permission to return. The intercessions of Madame de Stael and other friends proved successful. "On June 3, 1796, Talleyrand paid a visit to the French Minister to the United States, Pierre Auguste Adet, and received his passport. The last b [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        NIGHT THOUGHTS: THE POEM BY EDWARD YOUNG ILLUSTRATED WITH WATERCOLOURS BY WILLIAM BLAKE. THREE VOLUME LIMITED EDITION FACSIMILE IN CLOTH SOLANDER PRESENTATION CASE

      London: The Folio Society Facsimile limited edition of 1,000 copies. The two large format volumes are hand-bound in Nigerian goatskin leather with cloth sides printed and blocked with William Blake designs redrawn by David Eccles. 537 illustrations reproduced in facsimile from the original watercolours in the British Museum. Printed on Modigliani Neve paper, specially selected to match the original Whatman paper stock. Accompanied by a specially commissioned commentary volume by renowned Blake scholar Robin Hamlyn. Book Size: 17" x 13", 548 pages. Presented in a buckram covered solander box. "In 1795 William Blake received a commission from a London bookseller to provide illustrations for an engraved edition of Edward Young's The Complaint: or Night Thoughts on Life, Death, and Immortality. It was by far the most notable undertaking of Blake's artistic career to this point, a perfect marriage of illustrator and subject. The prodigious number of watercolours Blake produced - 537 in all - meant there was one illustration for approximately every 20 lines of verse, an extraordinary achievement in itself. Yet the beauty of the work is what truly astonishes. Page after page, you cannot help but be moved by the passion and sweep of Blake's imagination. For Night Thoughts, this most singular of artists produced a breathtaking procession of individual portraits: the divine and the damned, arresting in their conception, captivating in their execution. Blake's watercolours do not just ornament the panels of Young's text, they dominate and envelop them. From the ringer serpent of Nature to the Soul staggering ‘at Futurity' at the edge of a mountain-top; from the bearded figure of Death tearing the pillow from behind the sleeper's head, to depictions of Christ the Redeemer and Creator, these are images of astonishing inventiveness and emotional power."

        Description of a Forty-Feet Reflecting Telescope, From the Philosophical Transactions

      19 large folding engraved plates. 65 pp. Large 4to, cont. half-calf & paste paper boards (head of spine worn & corners a bit rubbed), spine gilt, red leather lettering piece on spine. [London: 1795]. First edition, the rare separately paginated offprint of one of Herschel's most important papers. Herschel (1738-1822), designed an enormous 40-foot reflector telescope for King George III at Slough. To accommodate the mirror, the tube had to be over 40 feet long and nearly 5 feet in diameter. This work describes the entire process of its conception and costly four-year construction, completed in 1789, with special attention paid to the tube, the mounting, and their accessories. Dignitaries and prominent astronomers from all over Europe came to view the 40-foot telescope, which had become a wonder of the world. Herschel was able to discover two new moons of Saturn with his new telescope, but it proved impossible to maintain and use efficiently. The finely engraved plates depict all of the components of the telescope in addition to highly detailed cross-sections and schematics. Herschel wrote no monographs, leaving his papers, most of which were published in the Philosophical Transactions, as his sole printed works. Very good copy of an uncommon offprint. Small two-inch tear to the first plate and head of spine worn. &#10087; Henry C. King, The History of the Telescope, pp. 128-34.

Making the acquaintance of Mr. Temminck, the Treasurer of the Dutch East India Company, he was enabled to proceed to the Cape in one of the Company's ships called the Held-Woltemaade . The narrative is characterised by the intelligent and interesting manner in which it is written.' (Mendelssohn pp.889-890).

        Two folio albums of large counterproof drawings of the Abruzzo. A pair of late 18th century Grand Tour albums of landscape studies in the Abruzzo from the library of the Forbes family of Pitsligo and Fettercairn.

      1795 - 2 vol, folio, titled Brochures, Vol I and Vol II, containing counterproof drawings printed onto heavy laid paper, most cream but some buff, bearing rampant lion in shield Bracciano watermarks in both cases, comprising over 100 double-page landscapes, c.54.5 x 75 cm., 20 larger fold-out drawings printed back to back on 10 sheets, each c.54.5 x 77 cm., and additional single-page compositions, some also printed on verso of others, many bearing reversed English inscriptions of locations, some dated 1795, uniformly bound in half-calf over moiréed silk boards, worn, each bearing the armorial bookplate of Sir John Stuart Forbes Bar.t of Pitsligo & Fettercairn on front pastedown. This collection of relatively large scale drawings comprise rural landscape studies in the beautiful mountainous region of the Abruzzo, specifically in the province of l'Aquila, south of the eponymous city and due east of Rome. Apart from numerous named sites, including Monte Celano, Trasacco, Lago Fucino, Roveto and Capistrello, there are also a number of detailed studies of trees, suggesting this to be a particular interest of the artist's. Amongst the many captions is a reference to the Emperor Claudius having a residence at Trasacco. He was responsible for early efforts to reduce Lago Fucino, the ancient Fucine Lake, once the third largest in Italy, which was eventually drained in the 1870s by Prince Alessandro Torlonia. The frequently inscribed date of 1795, and the fact that the captions are in English, as the only clues to the identity of this travelling artist. The paper upon which these counterproofs have been impressed is also clearly late 18th century, though the binding and certainly the bookplates are rather later. Sir John Stuart Hepburn Forbes, 8th Baronet, (1804-1866), whose bookplate we see, married Lady Harriett Louisa Anne Kerr (d.1884), the daughter of William Kerr, the 6th Marquess of Lothian. Either family line's patronage could lie behind their production by one of the growing number of English and Scottish artists developing an interest in the 'picturesque' naturalistic landscape, that so inspired the likes of Turner, Constable, Hugh William Williams, Alexander Nasmyth and others. This burgeoning tradition stemmed directly from the increasing desire to travel to such exotic or romantic locations, that in turn inspired the literary creativity of the likes of Sir Walter Scott and Lord Byron. Sir John's mother was Williamina Belsches Stuart (1776-1810), herself a competent amateur artist, and coincidentally Scott's first true love and unwitting muse. As we know from other albums in this collection, the Kerr family of Lothian generated several competent amateurs, assisted in the manner of wealthy families by engaging the services of a drawing master, such as Henry William Burgess, who was inspired by his own detailed interest in the nature of trees to publish A Sketchbook of Trees in the Royal Collection, in the 1830s. Counterproof or offset drawings are impressions taken from the original in black chalk, or charcoal, or red chalk. The sheet of the original drawing and a blank sheet are both moistened before being passed through a press together, thereby transferring a mirror image from one to the other. Hence the captions to the images in this pair of albums all being in reverse. The purpose in this case is not known, but may well have been simply to create a duplicate record for wider enjoyment.

        A Treatise of Equity with the addition of marginal references and notes by John Fonblanque. Volume the Second

      Dublin: Byrne, Moore, Jones, and Watts, 1795 Bushrod Washington's copy, with his signature on the title-page. George Washington's favorite nephew, Bushrod (1762-1829) was executor of his uncle's estate and inherited Mount Vernon. He inherited Washington's library and papers, and this volume was surely shelved side-by-side with those books at Mount Vernon. Bushrod Washington gave John Marshall access to Washington's papers when the chief justice was writing his Life of Washington. George Washington took a special interest in his nephew's legal education, sponsoring his studies with George Wythe and James Wilson. Bushrod Washington practiced law from 1784 to 1798, when John Adams appointed him to the Supreme Court. He served for thirty-one years, concurring with Marshall so often that another member of the Court observed that they "are commonly estimated as a single judge." John Fonblanque (1759-1839 was an English politician and barrister. Bushrod Washington cited his edition of the Treatise of Equity in a number of cases. The influential work appeared in five editions from 1792 to 1820. Thomas Jefferson paid $7 for the third edition in 1807. Contemporary calf, rebacked preserving spine. Some mear, foxing and browning. Cloth case.

        Histoire De La Conjuration Des Espagnols Contre La République De Venise. Histoire De La Conjuration Des Gracques.

      Chez Antoine Augustin Renouard, Paris 1795 - Anteportada - Portada y 223 pp. a gran papel. Elegante encuadernación de época a plena piel roja decorada al oro. Lomera fileteada. Cantos decorados. Cortes dorados. Nota de Palau 285297 : "Según el propio editor, solamente se tiraron 65 ejemplares, de los cuales 5 en pergamino y 4 en gran papel vitela." Nuestro ejemplar "Douzieme, sur Soixante-cinq" Escrito y firmado a mano por el editor. =La Conjuración de Venecia de 1618 fue una confusa intriga diplomática entre la Monarquía Hispánica de Felipe III y la Serenísima República de Venecia, que condujo a una violenta revuelta contra los extranjeros al descubrirse (19 de mayo). Las fuentes italianas la denominan conjuración o conjura de Bedmar, nombre del embajador español. Según las fuentes venecianas, el origen sería un complot de las autoridades de los dominios españoles en Italia: el virrey de Nápoles (el Duque de Osuna, asistido por Francisco de Quevedo), el gobernador de Milán (Marqués de Villafranca), junto con el embajador español ante la República (Marqués de Bedmar), que habrían manipulado a un grupo de mercenarios franceses asentados en Venecia (algunos de ellos hugonotes, de religión protestante) para provocar una situación que permitiera la intervención militar de la flota española presente en el Adriático. Los franceses terminaron asesinados en los tumultos o ejecutados judicialmente. El hecho fue objeto de gran tratamiento propagandístico y literario, incluyéndose entre los temas de la llamada leyenda negra española. Las fuentes españolas desplazan la responsabilidad de la manipulación a las autoridades venecianas, que querrían de este modo comprometerlas. De hecho, tras el escándalo, que incluyó un intento de asalto popular a la embajada española y la novelesca huida de Quevedo disfrazado de mendigo -que se libró de la muerte gracias a su dominio del dialecto veneciano-, se produjo la destitución de esos cargos, que los venecianos consideraban hostiles.

        Essays on Philosophical Subjects

      London: for T. Cadell Jun., W. Davies, and W. Creech in Edinburgh,, 1795. To which is prefixed, an Account of the Life and Writings of the Author; by Dugald Stewart, F.R.S.E. Quarto (298 x 230 mm). Uncut in the original publisher's boards, preserved in a custom made buckram drop-back box. Spine cracked at foot, inner hinge of front board cracked but cords holding firm, boards very lightly rubbed; two short marginal tears repaired; a very fine copy. First edition, published five years after Smith's death, edited by Dugald Stewart with his "Account of the life and writings of Adam Smith", originally presented to the Royal Society of Edinburgh in two sessions during 1793. The editor states that the essays were intended as parts of "a connected history of the liberal sciences and elegant arts", but that Smith "long since... found it necessary to abandon that plan as far too extensive". The essays range over philosophy, aesthetics and the history of science. Most were probably written before the appearance of the Theory of Moral Sentiments in 1759, but were withheld from publication as part of Smith's "extensive plan".
