        HISTOIRE DE LA CONQUETE DU MEXIQUE, TRADUITE DE L'ESPAGNOL D'ANTONIO DE SOLIS [manuscript caption title]

      [N.p., but France, 1795. Folio. Late 19th-century black half morocco and cloth, spine gilt. Corners rubbed. Front inner hinge cracked. Minor soiling, some contemporary ink staining. Very good. Manuscript translation, in French, of this classic history of the conquest of Mexico, first published in Madrid in 1684. Though undated, it is written on paper watermarked 1793 in a neat and uniform hand. A French translation had appeared as early as 1691, but this appears to be a different translation. The HISTORIA DE LA CONQUISTA DE MEXICO was reprinted in multiple editions in every European language and was popular on both sides of the Atlantic. The author was a noted Spanish dramatist and historian. His work includes theatre, poetry, and prose, and he has been considered one of the last great writers of Spanish baroque literature. This work remained the most important European source on Latin American history up through the first part of the 19th century.

        Opusculos de arithmetica universal, publicados com a protecÁ?o da Academia Real das Sciencias e dedicados ao Ö D. Francisco Benedicto de Sousa Lancastre, e Noronha, nono Conde do Prado, e sexto Marquez das Minas.

      Lisbon, Na Officina da Mesma Academia [Real das Sciencias], 1795. - Woodcut device of Academia Real das Sciencias on title pages. Mathematical equations, symbols and tables in text. (8 ll.), 285 pp.; (4 ll.), 158 pp. 3 volumes in 1. Large 4? (27.2 x 20 cm.), contemporary tree sheep (minor wear to corners, some worm damage near head of spine), flat spine, gilt, green and crimson morocco lettering pieces, gilt letter, triple gilt fillets in rectangle along borders of covers, gilt tooling to edges of covers and spine. A large-paper copy, clean, crisp, in near-fine condition; fine to very fine internally. 3 volumes in 1. ---- FIRST EDITION, first (?) issue, with the original leaves Aa3 in volume I, and B4, C1, C4, D1 in volume II, as opposed to the cancel leaves present in most copies. Writing in 1934, Francisco Gomes Teixeira stated that aspects of this comprehensive algebra textbook were still of use (@HistÛria das matem ticas em Portugal, p. 235). The work consists of 2 volumes of @Opusculos, in which algebraic concepts are defined and illustrated through sample problems, and a third volume titled @Taboada de quadrados dos numeros naturaes, publicadas com a protecÁ?o da Academia Real das Sciencias, which lists the square of all whole numbers from 1 to 8,699. Each of the three title pages bears the imprint Lisboa: na Officina da mesma Academia, 1795. There are four @Opusculos in the first volume, two in the second. They are: I. "Theoria preliminar dos numeros inteiros"; II. "Das equaÁoens indeterminadas do primeiro gr?o"; III. "InstrucÁ?o ?s equaÁoens indeterminadas do segundo gr?o"; IV. "IntroduÁ?o s fracÁoens continuas"; V. "IntroduÁ?o a diversas theorias dos numeros inteiros"; and VI. "Das fracÁoens decimaes periodicas".The chainlines run horizontally throughout in the present copy, as opposed to the normal-size copy we have, which is a bibliographical curiosity, with the chainlines running horizontally in volume I, vertically in volume II, and both horizontally and vertically in the @Taboada.Ferreira Cangalhas was an officer in the army engineering corps who entered civilian life to teach mathematics privately. He published several other works on weights and measures. The work is dedicated to D. Francisco Benedicto de Sousa Lancastre e Noronha, 9th Conde do Prado and 6th Marquez das Minas.A rare work: as specialists in Portuguese books doing business since 1969, this is the third copy we have had or seen on the market, and the only one in large paper. Moreover, and curiously, the work does not appear for sale in various catalogues of the Academia Real das Sciencias issued during the late 1790s and first quarter of the nineteenth century that were included at the end of the Academia's publications. This is in contrast to many other works published by the Academia Real das Sciencias which long remained in print.---- Cf. InnocÍncio IV, 7 (citing only the two volumes of @Opusculos, with the date 1796, and without giving any collation), and @Grande enciclopÈdia XI, 185 (repeating the date 1796 for the @Opusculos). We have not been able to locate any copy dated 1796. OCLC: 560204700 (British Library). Porbase cites a single copy only (21 cm. tall) with the date 1795 at the Universidade CatÛlica Jo?o Paulo II, Lisboa, with (10), 80 pp. [We have been informed that the copy at the Universidade CatÛlica actually contains both volume II of the @Opusculos and the @Taboada.] Porbase cites as well two copies in the Archivo Nacional da Torre do Tombo (apparently on 2 of the 3 volumes). Also cited in Porbase is an incomplete copy of an earlier issue dated 1794, examined by us, containing only opusculos 2, 3 and 5, all in small quarto format. While there was not the opportunity to view the copies side by side, we think they are from the same setting of type, with minor variations. Not located in Copac. Not located in Hollis, Orbis, Melvyl, Socrates, Library of Congress Online Catalog, Clio, Catnyp, Mirlyn or Josiah.SHIPPED FROM PORTUGAL---- BOUND WITH: @CANGALHAS, Jo?o Pedro Ferreira. @Taboada de quadrados d [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        THIRD CONGRESS OF THE UNITED STATES...AN ACT MAKING APPROPRIATIONS FOR THE SUPPORT OF GOVERNMENT FOR THE YEAR ONE THOUSAND SEVEN HUNDRED AND NINETY FIVE [caption title]

      Philadelphia, 1795. Folio. Old fold lines. Very minor soiling. Very good. An official copy, signed by Secretary of State Edmund Randolph, of an act passed by the Third Congress, listing the appropriations for the federal budget for 1795. It includes salaries for the various government officials (the President and Vice President combined received $30,000); expenses such as fire wood, stationery, printing, candles, "and other contingent expenses" of various offices, as well as for the creation of the mint, including the purchase of land and a building to house the mint, and a coining press. The budget also provides for pensions, and for the care of the widow and orphaned children of two army officers. This is the final budget devised by Secretary of the Treasury Alexander Hamilton, who left office at the end of January 1795. "Approved, January the second, 1795," and signed in print by Speaker of the House Frederick Augustus Muhlenberg, Vice President John Adams, and President George Washington. Two states of this imprint are noted. One, Evans 29688, includes a statement of deposition: "Deposited among the rolls in the Office of the Secretary of State. Secretary of State," and is signed by Secretary of State Edmund Randolph. The other, Bristol B9364, is without this statement. The copy at hand is the former, signed by Secretary of State Edmund Randolph. NAIP locates only one copy with the deposition statement, at the Library of Congress. Scarce in either format, and particularly rare with the signature of the Secretary of State. 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.

        1795 OFFICIAL HANDWRITTEN DOCUMENT SIGNED by KING OF SPAIN to the GOVERNOR of CUBA

      1795. OFFICIAL MANUSCRIPT DOCUMENT on laid paper, in Spanish. SIGNED BY THE KING OF SPAIN with "YO EL REY". Appears to be the SIGNATURE of KING CHARLES IV / KING CARLOS IV. It is an actual hand signature, not the woodblock YO EL REY signature that is so often seen on his "signed" documents. I have confidence that this hand signature is that of the KING, though it could have been hand signed in his name by one of his officials, I have no way of knowing with absolute certainty. Written on both sides of an 8.25x11.75" sheet of laid, watermarked paper. The document is headed with a manuscript EL REY at the top of the front page, and is SIGNED on the back page, at the end of the written text, with YO EL REY. Undated (insofar as I can decipher), circa 1790s (1795?) The document begins with: "Intendente de Exército, y Real Hacienda de la Isla de Cuba" (i.e. addressed to the Governing Official of Cuba). I have not completely translated this document because the handwriting combined with the oxidation of the iron gall ink (causing offsetting from one side of the page to the other) makes it difficult. I do note that it discusses travel from Cadiz to New Spain, and from Veracruz to Guiana and Caracas. The paper has an interesting WATERMARK with the letters A and T inside circles, one on top of the other, with a cross at the very top. Also interesting is that at the bottom margin of the back page, about 5" below the King's "Yo El Rey" signature, is another signature (that I cannot make out) just below which are three additional handwritten lines. This brief text also mentions Cuba and Havana. Why these few lines are present at the bottom of the back page I have no idea. The document is in generally GOOD condition with a horizontal fold across the middle, quite a number of small holes in the writing where the pen point penetrated the paper, and some typical signs of age and use including oxidation of the iron gall ink, some edge wear and age toning. Still a solid and well-kept historic document relating to Cuba, South America, New Spain, and the King of Spain. I have tried to provide some high quality photos for your examination. I welcome questions and informative comments. Good

        THIRD CONGRESS OF THE UNITED STATES...AN ACT MAKING APPROPRIATIONS FOR THE SUPPORT OF THE MILITARY ESTABLISHMENT FOR THE YEAR ONE THOUSAND SEVEN HUNDRED AND NINETY FIVE; AND FOR THE EXPENSES OF THE MILITIA LATELY CALLED INTO THE SERVICE OF THE UNITED STATES [caption title]

      Philadelphia, 1795. Old fold lines. Minor age toning and a few small tears at extremities. Very good. An Act passed by the Third Congress appropriating funds for the military, and in particular, those troops sent to Western Pennsylvania to quell the Whiskey Rebellion. George Washington's presidential message of November 22, 1792 advocated a tax on distilled spirits, and Alexander Hamilton was a strong proponent of the whiskey excise tax, which was part of his overall plan for putting the federal government on a sound fiscal basis. As with many of his other proposals, it aroused bitter opposition in some quarters. Some objected that it laid federal taxes which properly belong to the states, while frontier representatives considered themselves singled out for an onerous tax. The impact of the whiskey revenue took several years to take full effect while the system of collectors was installed. Growing resistance to the tax continued to develop through the summer of 1794, when the Whiskey Rebellion really began. Congress repealed the excise tax on distilled spirits in March 1797, effectively ending the cause of the revolt. "Approved, thirty first Decr. 1794" and signed in print by Speaker of the House Frederick Augustus Muhlenberg, Vice President John Adams, and President George Washington. Two states of this imprint are noted. One, Evans 29689, includes a statement of deposition: "Deposited among the rolls in the Office of the Secretary of State. Secretary of State," and is signed by Secretary of State Edmund Randolph. The other, Bristol B9365, is without this statement. This is the former, signed by Secretary of State Edmund Randolph. NAIP locates four copies in all, but does not distinguish between the two states. Scarce in either format, and particularly rare with the signature of the Secretary of State. Edmund Randolph became the second Secretary of State on January 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.

        [MANUSCRIPT MEMORANDUM CONCERNING COPPER MINING AND EXPLORATION IN CARVER LAND GRANT IN THE GREAT LAKES REGION, SIGNED BY WILLIAM PATERSON, HENRY KNOX, AND FOUR OTHERS, AND INVOLVING ALEXANDER HAMILTON]

      [Np], 1795. Small quarto, on a folded folio sheet. Old folds. Minor soiling. Narrow strip of later paper attached to left edge. Very good. In a brown half morocco and cloth clamshell case, spine gilt. A significant memorandum signed by several important Revolutionary-era figures, including William Paterson and Henry Knox, concerning a joint venture to investigate copper mines in the Great Lakes region on the so-called Carver Grant. Many public figures in the founding days of the United States dabbled in land speculation and other similar ventures. This group of eminent Americans was apparently involved with the Carver Grant, a land grant totaling hundreds of square miles located in western Wisconsin and in Minnesota (including the present- day location of Saint Paul), which was supposedly given to explorer Jonathan Carver by two local Sioux chiefs in 1767. For several decades after Carver's death his heirs and various others tried to capitalize on the grant by petitioning the United States Congress to recognize its validity, and by selling and reselling lands in the region. Jonathan Carver (1710-80) was born in Weymouth, Massachusetts, raised in Connecticut, and spent most of his adult years in western Massachusetts. He distinguished himself through his service in the French and Indian War, and in 1766-67 undertook to explore Great Britain's newly-won lands around the Upper Mississippi River, partly with a mind to seeking a route to the Pacific Ocean. Carver spent the 1770s in London, petitioning the Crown for compensation for his explorations and seeking to publish the journal of his travels. Carver's TRAVELS THROUGH THE INTERIOR PARTS OF NORTH AMERICA was published in London in 1778 and was immediately popular, appearing in several editions. Despite this, Carver died penniless in London in 1780. In 1781 a "third edition" of Carver's TRAVELS appeared, issued by Dr. John Lettsom, a benefactor of Carver's British widow. In that edition, as part of biographical material on Jonathan Carver, the text of a deed dated May 1, 1767 was published for the first time, in which Carver was apparently given hundreds of miles of land in Minnesota and western Wisconsin. Over the next several decades Carver's heirs in the United States and England, as well as dozens of others who bought and tried to sell land in the grant area, worked to prove the validity of the grant and to profit from the sales. Congress was petitioned to validate the grant, the heirs of the Sioux chiefs were appealed to, and various schemes were developed by Samuel Harrison of Vermont, the Rev. Samuel Peters, and others, to sell and resell the land. The decades-long tale of the Carver Grant is best told by Milo Quaife and John Parker in the references cited below. The present document reads: "Memorandum that we whose names are hereunto subscribed do covenant, promise and agree with each other to use our separate and joint interest in obtaining a right of preemption for the lands mentioned in a book known by the title of Carver's TRAVELS and where he mentions having seen vast quantities of virgin copper and we further covenant with each other that we will become equally concerned in the above undertaking both in profit and loss. Witness our hands this thirteenth day of March and year seventeen hundred and ninety five. [signed] Benj. Henfrey / Wm. Paterson / H. Knox / W. Macpherson / Anthy. W. White / James Chambers." The docketing on the second leaf contains a list of "parties to the within articles respecting the exploring the country on Lake Superior, &c," and the list includes Knox, Paterson, Alexander Hamilton, New Jersey Governor Richard Howell, and six others, plus "if approved by him, His Excellency the Honble. Major General [Anthony] Wayne." Hamilton at this point had been a private citizen for six weeks, having retired as Secretary of the Treasury on Jan. 31, 1795. The document is signed by William Paterson, a signer of the Constitution, U.S. Senator, governor of New Jersey (1790-93), and Associate Justice of the Supreme Court from 1793 until his death in 1806; Henry Knox, Washington's first secretary of war (1789-94); William Bingham, a Pennsylvania Congressman; Benjamin Henfrey, an Englishman who had emigrated to Pennsylvania and patented a method of making gas light, using his "thermo-lamp," which he showcased in Baltimore, Richmond, and Philadelphia; and William Macpherson and Anthony W. White, who both served in the United States Army and were involved in quelling the Whiskey Rebellion in 1794. A remarkable document illustrating a pioneering western joint venture, and Alexander Hamilton's return to private investing. This document sold for $7170 at Heritage Auctions on Oct. 24, 2007.

        Entrance tokens for Gilbert Pidcock's menagerie, ca 1795

      circa, 1795. Two bronze tokens, diameter 21cms. in very good condition. Pidcock's menagerie was at Exeter Exchange on the Strand in London. He exhibited exotic animals since 1793, including a kangaroo, elephant, rhinoceros and cockatoos. The tokens here on offer are one showing an elephant and on verso a cockatoo; the other showing an elephant and a two-headed cow. Gilbert Pidcock had worked in travelling shows since he was a young man, and in 1795 took sole ownership of the London-based menagerie which bore his name, situated in the Strand in a building called the Exeter Change. One of the grand sights of the metropolis, people flocked to see the exotic animals and birds on show, and he started at an ideal time for acquiring specimens from Australian and South-East Asia. One of Pidcock's regular visitors was the wood engraver and artist Thomas Bewick, who used the animals as models for the engravings he included in works like his famous General History of Quadrupeds.The rare bronze token advertising their acquisition of a crested cockatoo, given the rather limited detail of the present specimen, and the lack of explicit records of the birds kept by Pidcock, it is not possible to be precise about exactly what kind of cockatoo is depicted: having said that, it must be one of the birds endemic to Australia or Indonesia: the sulphur-, orange-, yellow- or otherwise crested cockatoos. In John White's Journal of a Voyage to New South Wales, to cite one obvious comparison, there is a "Crested Cockatoo" that was drawn by Sarah Stone.The two-headed heifer was a live exhibit and an advertisement referring to it appeared in the 29th January 1791 edition of the London Chronicle: "Now exhibiting at the Lyceum Strand. The surprising Heifer with two heads. This very remarkable creature has two Heads, Four Horns, Four Ears, Four Nostrils, through each of which it breathes, &c. This truly wonderful Curiosity is the only one of the kind in Europe; and what is more astonishing, it takes its Sustenance with both mouths at the same time, to the admiration of the Faculty, and the Beholders in general; and it also the received opinion of John Hunter, Esq., Professor of Anatomy, that it has two hearts. One of the Heads, together with the Horns, represents that of a bull, and the other a Cow. The height of the animal is thirteen hands, and each Horn measures twenty-five inches long. Admittance One Shilling. N.B.- Most money given for all sorts of foreign Beasts and Birds, if alive, by G. Pidcock."

Contemporary half calf with gilt spine and beige glazed paper label. Spine somewhat faded and blotchy and with some scratching. Rear cover with some superficial worming. Old ink note and an auction ticket on front pastedown. Insert fine with occasional minor stains, for example fingerprints in the text on p. 383 in part II. Signature of Samuel Wallner. Plates engraved by J. M. Weller. The third part treats the use of electricity within medicine. Translated from the third edition of Gehler's German translation of the English original "Complete treatise of electricity", published in London in 1777. Furthermore the translators have added information from other sources to the critical apparatus. Tiberius Cavallo (1749-1809) was born in England but worked in England. He made many improvements to scientific instruments and is especially known for "Cavallo's multiplier" which could amplify minor electrical charges and make them measurable in an electroscope. He became a Fellow of the Royal Society in 1779. Samuel Wallner (1778-1865) defended his doctor's thesis under the presidency of the Linnean disciple Thunberg in 1800 and 1804. He later worked within the medical service in Hudiksvall in the northern part of Sweden. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Landschaft mit Blick auf ein Schlößchen, wahrscheinlich in der Umgebung von München.

      - Bleistift auf Bütten, rechts unten signiert „Franz Kobell fecit"; verso alte Inventarnummer. 18,7:24,5 cm. Bleistiftzeichnungen gehören zu den Seltenheiten im sehr umfangreichen zeichnerischen Œuvre Franz Kobells. Vermutlich um 1795 nach der Italienreise entstanden, als er sich mit seiner neuen Heimat München auseinandersetzte und Motive von München und seiner Umgebung in schlichten und unprätentiösen Zeichnungen wiedergab. Ein vergleichbares Blatt ist abgebildet in: Th. Herbig, Franz Kobell. Ein Landschaftszeichner um 1800, Traunstein/Reutlingen 1997/1998, Nr. 35, Abb. S. 27. Nach einer Ausbildung zum Kaufmann in Mainz kehrte Franz Kobell 1762 in seine Geburtsstadt Mannheim zurück, wo er von seinem Bruder Ferdinand (1740-1799) auch künstlerisch unterstützt wurde. 1771-1778 bildete er sich zusätzlich an der Mannheimer Zeichnungsakademie aus. 1778 erhielt er von Kurfürst Karl Theodor von der Pfalz eine Pension, die ihm eine Reise nach Italien ermöglichte, wo er sich hauptsächlich in Rom aufhielt. Hier war er insbesondere dem Maler F. Müller (1749-1825), dem Dichter W. Heise und dem Bildhauer A. Trippel (1744-1793) freundschaftlich verbunden. Die Beschäftigung mit der Malerei N. Poussins (1594-1665) und Cl. Lorrains (1600-1682) hatte großen Einfluß auf sein späteres Werk; er wandte sich ganz und gar der Landschaftskunst zu. Bereits 1780 wurde er zum Hofmaler am 1778 nach München verlegten Mannheimer Hof ernannt. 1784 kehrte er aus Italien nah München zurück. Ab 1793 lebte er in Wohngemeinschaft mit seinem Bruder Ferdinand und seinem Neffen Wilhelm von Kobell (1766-1853) in München. Der zeichnerische Nachlaß des Künstlers wird auf mehr als 10.000 Blatt geschätzt.

Lewin planned to publish a comprehensive work on the insects of Great Britain, however, only one volume appeared due to the death of the author. "Lewin conceived the ambition to publish a comprehensive, illustrated work on 'The Insects of Great Britain'. In the event, his untimely death prevented the completion of all but the first volume on 'Papilios', which contains significantly more species of butterflies, together with their early stages, than works by previous authors: in present day terms, some 62 species plus three recognized forms.

        Cannoge, on the River Ganges

      published by Thomas Daniell, London - Aquatint by and after Thomas & William Daniell, coloured by hand. Image size: 17 3/4 x 23 3/8 inches; sheet size: 21 1/8 x 29 1/8 inches. A beautiful, atmospheric landscape of an ancient northern Indian capital Kannauj was an important centre under Harsha, the most powerful ruler of Northern India in the early 7th century, and it later became the capital of the Pratihara dynasty. Looking at the ruined tombs in the distance the artists lamented that '.It is impossible to look at these miserable remnants of the great city of Cannoge without the most melancholy sensations, and the strongest conviction of the instability of man's proudest works.' The Daniells' Oriental Scenery is considered to be the finest illustrated work on India. Thomas Daniell and his nephew William spent nine years in India making studies, sketches and drawings of the scenery, architecture, and antiquities that graced the countryside. They then devoted a further thirteen years to publishing their remarkably accurate aquatints. In Britain, the impact was explosive. A cult of Indian architecture, landscaping and interior decoration arose, with the Royal Pavilion at Brighton as its centerpiece. The Daniells gave the English public their first accurate look at the exotic sub-continent. Their great achievement still lies in their ability to blend the picturesque with the real, resulting in images that capture the European taste for the sublime landscape, while still remaining faithful to their subjects. The Daniells brought the romance of the English landscape to the antiquities of India and provided England with an accurate vision of this wondrous country. Consisting of one hundred and forty-four views, published in six parts, the work was issued in seven stages: three sets of twenty-four plates titled Oriental Scenery with title dates of 1795, 1797, and 1801; twelve plates titled Antiquities of India dated 1799; twenty-four plates titled Hindoo Excavations dated 1803; twenty-four plates titled Views in Hindoostan dated 1807; and twelve further plates of Antiquities of India published without a title page in 1808. All plates were engraved by the Daniells and all are taken from their drawings save the twenty-four plates of Hindoo Excavations , which are after drawings by James Wales.

        MEMOIRS OF THE YEAR TWO THOUSAND FIVE HUNDRED ... Translated from the French, by W. Hooper, M.A

      Philadelphia: Printed by Thomas Dobson,. 1795. rebound to style in full leather, spine ruled in gold and tooled in blind, reddish-brown title piece lettered in gold.. Text paper tanned, a very good, externally fine copy rebound to style. and sewn with new linen hinges, new sewn headbands, and new. endpapers. (#137388). First U.S. edition. A translation of L'AN DEUX MILLE QUATRE CENT QUARANTE, first published in Amsterdam in 1771. "This first utopia set in future time was one of the eighteenth century's most successful books. It was immediately banned in France, put on the Inquisition's list of forbidden books in 1773, and condemned in Madrid in 1778 as a blasphemous work whose distributors, if discovered, would be fined five hundred ducats and sentenced to six years in prison. The Year 2440 had eleven editions in French between 1771 and 1799, as well as two English translations and translations into Dutch, Italian, and German. Investigation of its printing history leads Everett Wilkie to conclude that 'there were 18,000 copies in print in three languages by the end of 1772 and 30,000 copies by the end of 1782, at which point it had spread thoroughly over Europe... 63,000 copies had been printed by Mercier's death' in 1814. The book was less successful across the Atlantic, but a 1795 Philadelphia edition was 'nevertheless, the first utopian novel published in North America.' George Washington and Thomas Jefferson owned copies of The Year 2440." - Alkon, Origins of Futuristic Fiction, p. 117. "... although the earliest specimens of futuristic fiction were in English, the glory of discovering the true potentialities of the genre belongs to the French -- to Sebastien Mercier who established the first satisfactory model of the new fiction... The utopian prophecy of L'AN 2440, the first influential story of the future in world literature, became one of the most widely read books in the last quarter of the eighteenth century. The translations into Dutch and German, the English and American editions, and the many imitations show how Mercier beguiled his readers in two continents with the vision of a dream come true." - Clarke, The Pattern of Expectation 1644-2001, p. 23. See Alkon, Origins of Futuristic Fiction, esp. pp. 117-29. Anatomy of Wonder (1976) 1-29; (1981) 1-123; (1987) 1-63; (1995) 1-63; and (2004) II- 757. Bleiler, Science- Fiction: The Early Years 1476.

        Armide Drame Heroique. Représenté pour la premiere Fois, par l'Academie Royale de Musique, le 23. Septembre 1777. Prix 24 livres. [Full score].

      Des Lauriers [without PN] [ca 1795], Paris - Third edition, second issue. Hopkinson 45A (c). Loewenberg 359. Lesure p. 237. Hirsch II, 268. RISM G2679. The first issue of the first edition was published by the Bureau du Journal de Musique in 1777; the second issue, by de Marchand in ca. 1778. Des Lauriers took over in about 1780, printing an edition from the original plates but with a newly-engraved title page. The publisher's catalogue is unique to the second issue of his Titelauflage.The libretto by Quinault after Tasso had been set by Lully in 1686. "What persuaded Gluck to choose Armide after Iphigenie en Aulide was probably not any aesthetic consideration; but rather a shrewd feeling that an appeal to French national pride, a sop to the old Lullyist school and a demonstration that he could rival Lully in his own province would none of them come amiss. in none of the scenes in Quinault's poem is it possible for Renaud to appear in a favorable light. Armide, on the other hand, is a bewitching figure. Proud, amorous, and intensely feminine, she is one of the most convincing of Gluck's heroines." Cooper: Gluck, pp. 213- 19. Folio. Full green vellum with former owner's name "M.lle de Fontenelle" gilt to upper, titling gilt to spine, edges red. 1f. (title), 1f. (publisher's catalogue), 279, [i] (blank) pp. Engraved. Binding worn, rubbed and bumped; spine slightly defective and chipped at head and foot; hinge reinforced with dark green cloth. Occasional light soiling; initial leaves including title and final leaves somewhat foxed; leaves from p. 149 to end somewhat browned. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Cheval-Pettore in the Tinnevelly District

      published by Thomas Daniell, London - Aquatint by and after Thomas & William Daniell, coloured by hand. Image size: 17 5/8 x 23 1/2 inches; sheet size: 21 1/8 x 29 1/8 inches. An impressive 18th century fortification in Souther India This fort, with its circular bastions made of sun-dried mud, was built by the Madurai Nayakas to withstand the incursions of the Nawabs of Arcot in the early 18th Century. It was set in a majestic landscape on the outskirts of the town of Srivilliputtur, dominated by the steep slopes of the Varushanad hills, but it has long ago disappeared. Srivilliputhur is in the Tamil Nadu district of southern India. The Daniells' Oriental Scenery is considered to be the finest illustrated work on India. Thomas Daniell and his nephew William spent nine years in India making studies, sketches and drawings of the scenery, architecture, and antiquities that graced the countryside. They then devoted a further thirteen years to publishing their remarkably accurate aquatints. In Britain, the impact was explosive. A cult of Indian architecture, landscaping and interior decoration arose, with the Royal Pavilion at Brighton as its centerpiece. The Daniells gave the English public their first accurate look at the exotic sub-continent. Their great achievement still lies in their ability to blend the picturesque with the real, resulting in images that capture the European taste for the sublime landscape, while still remaining faithful to their subjects. The Daniells brought the romance of the English landscape to the antiquities of India and provided England with an accurate vision of this wondrous country. Consisting of one hundred and forty-four views, published in six parts, the work was issued in seven stages: three sets of twenty-four plates titled Oriental Scenery with title dates of 1795, 1797, and 1801; twelve plates titled Antiquities of India dated 1799; twenty-four plates titled Hindoo Excavations dated 1803; twenty-four plates titled Views in Hindoostan dated 1807; and twelve further plates of Antiquities of India published without a title page in 1808. All plates were engraved by the Daniells and all are taken from their drawings save the twenty-four plates of Hindoo Excavations , which are after drawings by James Wales.

It is attributed to James Caulfield (1764-1826), a London author and printseller specializing in old English engravings and in portraits. He helped to feed the fashion for `grangerizing' or pasting extra illustrations into historical or topographical books, republishing many old plates and copying many old prints when the originals were too rare or too valuable to supply in quantity.

The prints show scoundrels of both sexes, some more grotesque than others.

John Jay was the first Chief Justice of the Supreme Court from October 19, 1789 to June 29, 1795, when he resigned to become Governor of New York, serving from July 1, 1795, to June 30, 1801. On December 18, 1800, President John Adams renominated the 55-year-old Governor as Chief Justice. He was confirmed by the Senate the next day, but he declined, citing his own poor health and the court's lack of ""the energy, weight and dignity which are essential to its affording due support to the national government."" Adams then nominated his second choice, John Marshall. Jay also declined renomination as Governor in 1801. He remained in good health, continued to farm, and stayed out of politics. John Jay died in 1829 at the age of 83."
