        Select pieces of poetry, intended to promote piety and virtue in the minds of young people

      London: Printed and sold by James Phillips, 1795. [4], v, [2], vi-viii, 168pp. With half title and inserted errata leaf. Contemporary calf. Rubbed, with slight loss at head of spine, small crack to upper joint. Several leaves protruding from text block, occasional marking. Presentation copy, inscribed by the husband of the late compiler 'Jane Gurney from David Barclay' to head of half-title. A handsome family copy, from the extensive Gurney/Barclay network, of an uncommon collection of pious Quaker verse made by Rachel Barclay. David Barclay of Youngsbury (1729-1809), who is known to have inscribed and presented other copies of this work, was presumably responsible for commissioning the printing of his late second wife's 'selection of pieces in verse', which was intended 'to secure the purity and innocence' of the 'sentiments and conversation' of 'young people, and especially those of her own sex, and religious persuasion'. A prominent Quaker, businessman with significant American connections, and a member of the Barclay banking family, David was known as a philanthropist and abolitionist, who had freed his own Jamaican slaves and later assisted with lobbying of the English parliament by American Quaker abolitionist groups. ESTC locates only six copies in the UK (BL, Cambridge, Congregational, N.L.S., Society of Friends and Somerset Natural History Society), and 10 in North America. ESTC T86109.. First edition. 8vo.

        Letters for Literary Ladies. To which is added an essay on the noble science of self-justification. FIRST EDITION.

      J. Johnson. 1795 Contemp. full tree calf, spine gilt in compartments, red leather label; hinges worn but holding, spine & edges rather rubbed. Belper armorial bookplate.Loeber E18. Loeber suggests (see E17) that the epistolary novella 'Letters of Julia and Caroline', which forms the second part of this volume, may have been separately published earlier the same year; he points out it has a 'separate titlepage, pagination, and register'. Nonetheless, this is widely considered the first publication by Maria Edgeworth, and is scarce in any condition. It is essentially a plea for female education, in the form of a letter from one (a man) who advises his friend, the father of a new-born daughter, against educating women. It is countered by the father's reply, in which he rejects his friend's misgivings, and extols the benefits of learning for both sexes.

        Vues de Moscou. ???? ??????.

      St. Petersbourg -96 1795 - Four engravings. Full dimensions of the sheets: ca. 58.5 x 79.5 cm. Fine set of large format engraved views constituting a social and historical record of late eighteenth-century Moscow. Fine examples with wide margins. The publication of the views, engraved after watercolours by the French artist La Barthe (1730-1810), was undertaken at the expense of the owner of most of these watercolours. Johann Walser was a Swiss merchant resident in Moscow in the early 1790s who commissioned La Barthe to produce a series of Moscow scenes between 1794 and 1797. Shortly afterwards Walser returned to Switzerland, where he enlisted the services of six experienced engravers (M.G. Eichler, H. Guttenburg, P.J. Laminit, G.C. Oberkogler, F.B. and J. Lorieux) to reproduce his watercolours in print. An album with twelve engraved views was published with the Tsar's permission, and the plates were captioned in both Russian and French, indicating Walser's intentions to sell them in Russia and in Europe. Sets comprising large part of the series are rare. We found examples with a complete set of engravings only in two libraries - Concordia University Libraries in Quebec, Canada and British Library, which holds a copy from the collection of King George III; no copies found in RGB or RNB. This set of four views includes some of the most famous places in the Russian capital: Vue du Kremlin et de ses environs a Moscou; Vue de la porte sainte et de ses environs à Moscou; Vue de la grande Place et des Boutiques à Moscou; Vue de la Mokavaia et de la maison de Mr Paschkof à Moscou.

Small woodcut Portuguese royal arms on title page. Woodcut tailpieces. Printed on excellent quality thick paper. Internally in very fine, uncut condition. Overall very good to fine. (5 ll.), xxxii pp., (1 l.), 89 pp., (1 blank l.). The poems in Greek and Portuguese are on facing pages from [2] to 73. *** First Edition in Portuguese, heavily annotated and with an extensive preface.Luís António de Azevedo (1755-ca. 1818-20?), son of a bookseller, was regio professor of grammar and Latin. An erudite eccentric, he sometimes walked through the streets of Lisbon accompanied by a pack of wild dogs, petting one or another and dispensing treats. On the salary of a professor he managed to leave at his death a well-chosen library and furniture of considerable value.The Golden Verses of Pythagoras were not in fact written by Pythagoras. They are a series of gnomic sayings, many of them very obscure. In the Carmina Aurea, Hierocles of Alexandria preserved for posterity a summation of Pythagorean teachings on the art of living. Couched in language appealing to ethical sensitivity and moral aspiration, the treatise had a wide appeal. Giovanni Aurispa discovered the work in Constantinople around 1418; he brought it back to Italy and translated it to Latin. It became very influential during the Renaissance, especially in fifteenth- and sixteenth-century Italy and France.Hierocles of Alexandria (fl. circa 430) was a student of the Neoplatonist Plutarch. He was teaching in Alexandria when the Christians came to dominate the city. He seems to have been exiled to Constantinople, perhaps for teaching doctrines of which the Christians disapproved.*** Imprensa Nacional 496 (collation agrees with our copy, except that it is given with two less roman-numbered pages followed by an additional unnumbered leaf; in our copy this leaf is unnumbered on the recto, but numbered xxxii on the verso; moreover, this leaf contains the "Argumento" in both our copy and the one described in the library-archives of the Imprensa Nacional).

        EIGHT PAMPHLETS REGARDING THE YAZOO LAND SCANDAL, BOUND TOGETHER, WITH THE OWNERSHIP OF AND HAND ANNOTATED INFORMATION BY JOHN RANDOLPH

      1795-1805, Washington, DC 1795 - NEWSLETTER TEXT: EIGHT PAMPHLETS REGARDING THE YAZOO LAND SCANDAL, BOUND TOGETHER, WITH ANNOTATIONS BY JOHN RANDOLPH OF ROANOKE Washington, DC: 1795-1805. The Yazoo land scandal was a massive real-estate fraud perpetrated in the mid-1790s by Georgia governor George Mathews and the Georgia General Assembly. Georgia politicians sold large tracts of territory in the Yazoo lands, portions of the present-day states of Alabama and Mississippi, to political insiders at very low prices in 1794. Although the law enabling the sales was overturned by reformers the following year, its ability to do so was challenged in the courts, eventually reaching the US Supreme Court. In the landmark decision of Fletcher v. Peck (1810), the Court ruled that the contracts were binding and the state could not retroactively invalidate the earlier land sales. These pamphlets were bound together at the direction of John Randolph (1773-1833) who served in the House of Representatives at various times between 1799 and 1833 and in the U.S. Senate (1825-1827). OTHER DESCRIPTION: 8vo.; VG-; 1/2 bound, black spine with gilt lettering, marbled boards; moderate wear to boards, including bumping to corners, fraying to corner and board edges, small separation at hinges; spine has some cracking and small amount of peeling; larger bump on upper edge of rear board; lower edge of front board rubbed enough that it is no longer even with the rear board, and the volume with not stand upright alone; front board slightly loose, but still attached; ex-library, with a bookplate for Mt.

        Temple of Canopus at Hadrian's Villa

      Paris 1795 - This extraordinary large folio etching is from Giovanni Battista Piranesi's "Vedute di Roma". The etchings available are from the late 18th and early 19th centuries. Some are from the last Rome edition circa 1785-1790 and first Paris edition from 1795-1805. --- Piranesi is known as one of the most famous architectural artists of all times. Born in Venice and later settled in Rome, the young Piranesi first aspired to be an architect. After having little luck in his studied field, he turned instead to the art of architecture. His work masterfully used light and space to create depth and detail in his exceptional work. --- Piranesi noted, "When I saw in Rome how most of the remains of ancient buildings lay scattered through gardens and ploughed fields where they dwindled day by day I resolved to preserve them by means of engravings. I have therefore drawn these ruins with all possible exquisiteness." --- The work is in excellent condition overall. There may be a a few light marks to be expected with age, but most imperfections can be seen in the picture provided. Please review the image carefully for condition and contact us with any questions. [Attributes: First Edition]

After Burke's expression of horror at violent revolution in his REFLECTION ON THE REVOLUTION IN FRANCE (1790), Paine responded with RIGHTS OF MAN, wherein he "took the argument to a higher level. With a force and clarity unequalled even by Burke, Paine laid down those principles of human rights where they must stand no matter what excesses are committed to obtain them" - PMM. In his DISSERTATION..., he attempted to influence the formation of the French constitution after the Revolution. ESTC W36944, T5879, W13296, T5825. GIMBEL 59, 66, 76, 95 (ref). HOWES P19, P31, P32.

        The Camp, A Musical Entertainment, as Performed at the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane. By R.B. Sheridan, Esq

      London: [s.n.], 1795. First edition. 28 pp. 8vo. Blue wrappers. Covers lightly stained, a few pale stains to text. First edition. 28 pp. 8vo. The authorship of this play is debated, with Williams ascribing the work to Richard Tickell (1751-1793), with revisions by Sheridan. ESTC notes a manuscript draft of the play in Tickell's hand. It has also been ascribed to Sheridan with assistance from John Burgoyne and David Garrick. The songs by Thomas Linley were originally written for Thomas Hill's The Royal Merchant. The play, with prologue by Tickell, is included Cecil Price's edition of the Sheridan's dramatic works. After a thorough discussion of the contested authorship, Price concludes that the work was "essentially a topical, co-operative venture, brought out with zest to meet the needs of the moment. I see no objection to the idea that other writers may have had some hand in it, even though I believe that Sheridan was responsible for many of the lines" (The Dramatic Works of Richard Brinsley Sheridan, II, p. 710). The action revolves around preparations at Coxheath for the invasion of England by France following that country's alliance with the colonies in the American War of Independence. The play debuted on 30 October 1779 at Drury Lane and ran for 57 performances, though was not in print until this unauthorized 1795 edition. The text, with its many errors and paraphrases, was likely taken down during a performance. Scarce, with ESTC locating only 16 copies (low for Sheridan) and ABPC recording only one copy sold at auction. ESTC T19858; Williams, p. 231

Hearne was the first white man to travel overland to the Arctic Ocean, having been sent up the Coppermine River by the Hudson's Bay Company, in hopes of discovering copper mines. Instead, he discovered Great Slave Lake and the Mackenzie River system, and demonstrated that there was no Northwest Passage through Hudson Bay. Lande states, "We owe the publication of this Journey to the celebrated French navigator Le Perouse, who captured Fort Albany on Hudson Bay and found Hearne's manuscript... He gives much attention to the natural history and to the Indian tribes of the Region." Lande 1220. Hill 791. Sabin 31181. Streeter Sale 3652. First edition of a scarce classic of Arctic travel. A tall copy, measuring 11 3/4 inches. The four folding maps and five plates are in very good condition, showing only scattered light foxing, with no tears. The folding frontispiece map, on which the routes of Hearne's journey are colored in red and yellow, shows only light tanning along the top edge in in the upper right panel. The text, printed on distinctive light blue paper, is clean. The terminal leaf is present, upon which publisher's ads and directions to the binder are printed. An excellent copy of the first edition, rebound in half morocco over boards, with spine label.
