        The American Criterion of the English Language; Containing the Elements of Pronunciation; in Five Sections. For the Use of English Schools and Foreigners

      New London, Connecticut: Samuel Green. 1795. 12mo (16 cm). F First Edition. H Hard Cover. Good. First edition. Early American imprint (1795) with emphasis on American pronunciation of the English language. The author, in the preface, recognizes distinct regional differences even within the American mode of speech - "The pronunciation of the southern states of English America is almost as different from that of the New-England states, even among the learned, as any two dialects of the language of any illiterate nation can be supposed to be : and yet both those parts of America abound with men of bright genius, large mental capacities and profound learning". The author also recognizes the diaparity between the written and spoken English language, and attempts to teach new English readers a consistent method of pronunciation based on a system of rules set forth in the book. Paper covered wooden boards with calf spine, ix, (2), 12-119, (1)p., with the final page citing errata. Free endpapers absent, otherwise a complete copy with age-toned pages free from chips or tears other than one page with a 3mm internal chip toward the bottom barely affecting the text on one page. Externally worn, with the paper covering quite chipped and exposing the wood, front hinge cracked. This is most likely its original, inexpensive binding, in unrestored condition. Text block sound with no loosened pages. Old stamp from what may have been an academic library (not identified) on front pastedown. Rare.

      Les Insects de la Grande Brétagne rangés dans un ordre systématique, gravés avec soin, et peints d'après nature. London, J. Johnson, 1795. 4to (278 x 210mm). pp. 97, (3), with 46 handcoloured engraved plates. Contemporary red half morocco, spine with gilt lines and lettering. 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... Lewin was also the first author to follow the strict order of families, and to use Linnaean names consistently..." (M.A. Salmon. The Aurelian legacy p. 122).

      . Nürnberg, Felschecker, [1795]. Small 8vo. [viii], 372 pp. Engraved frontispiece, two title pages, 12 partly hand-coloured engraved plates with explanatory text leaves. Contemporary (original?) pictorial paper covered boards.* The first title of this early contribution by Panzer suggests an entirely different work, namely a yearly calendar of the occurrence of German insects, however, this remains restricted to a table for the month of January, each day given the name of an entomologist or naturalist writer. The rest of the book, including the fine, detailed, and partly coloured plates, deals with German (ground) beetles ["Eleuterata"], including many new species. The frontispiece, by A. W. Kützner, dated 1794, shows the god, Pan. None of the bibliographers mention the frontispiece and indeed we have seen copies without it. Boards rubbed, especially at joints, with some paper loss. A few light pencil notes in the margins, otherwise a very good copy. Rare. Hagen II, p. 27; Horn-Schenkling, 16729; Nissen ZBI, 3086..

        Esquisse d'un tableau historique des progrès de l'esprit humain. Ouvrage posthume de Condorcet

      Paris: "Agasse, ans III". [1795.]. "Second edition, 8vo, pp. viii, 389; contemporary full calf, black morocco label on gilt-decorated spine; front joint cracked, else good. See PMM 246: ""It was the gospel of the nineteenth century that mankind is destined for indefinite future progress. Condorcet [1743-1794], looking back and then forward, saw proof of this in the growing equality between classes and nations, the intellectual, physical and moral improvement of man; and he prophesied that popular education on correct principles would strengthen and assure this progress. In the Esquisse [ëAn Historical Outline of the Progress of the Human Mindí], published after his death, Condorcet traces the history of man through epochs, the first three covering his progress from savagery to pastoral community and thence to the agricultural state. The next five span the growth of civilizations and knowledge down to Descartes, and the ninth describes the revolution of Condorcetís own lifetime, from Newton to Rousseau. The prophetic view of the tenth epoch shows Condorcet at his most original. He forecasts the destruction of inequality between nations and classes, and the improvement, intellectual, moral and physical of human nature it is as the most fully developed exposition of the progress of man that Condorcetís work is now remembered, and it is this which has given its lasting appeal."""

An einen namentlich nicht genannten Mitarbeiter in Sachen eines von Campe herausgegebenen Periodikums, wohl die „Beiträge zur Beförderung der fortschreitenden Ausbildung der deutschen Sprache" (Braunschweig 1795–1797): „Ew. Wohlgebohren muß ich, in Bezug auf mein neuliches Antwortschreiben, mit Bedauern mittheilen, daß die deutsche Schriftsteller- u. Lesewelt fortfährt, unsere Bemühungen um die weitere Ausbildung der d.

        Letter signed twice ("Edm. Randolph, late Secretary of State"), attesting to the translation skills and integrity of Mr. George Taylor, Jr., chief clerk in the State Department under Randolph

      Philadelphia, october 3, 1795 - Edmund Randolph of Virginia succeeded Thomas Jefferson as Secretary of State in Washington's cabinet, and was serving in that office during the delicate negotiations with the French over the terms of what was eventually to become the Jay Treaty. When a compromising dispatch from the French Minister was discovered and suspicions of double-dealing (and possible bribery) fell on Randolph, Washington exposed Randolph before the Cabinet, and Randolph immediately resigned in August, 1795 under a cloud. During his term of service, his chief French and Spanish translator was George Taylor, Jr., who also prepared a translation of the Fauchet letter for Randolph's apologia, A VINDICATION OF MR. RANDOLPH'S RESIGNATION, in 1795. In this letter of attestation from Randolph, written shortly after his resignation, the former Secretary of State writes: " . I do moreover certify, that I have never been able to procure any translator of the French language so accurate, as Mr. Taylor: that I considered this circumstance as fortunate, BECAUSE MOST OF THE FRENCH PAPERS ARE CONFIDENTIAL [emphasis ours] . " In fact, in a letter to Alexander Hamilton (of December 12, 1795), Timothy Pickering (who first discovered the damning letter) was worried about the accuracy of Taylor's forthcoming translation (v. THE PAPERS OF ALEXANDER HAMILTON, Columbia University Press, 1973): "The translation of Fauchet's letter will be in it. This translation was made by Mr. Taylor at Randolph's request; but Mr. Taylor, who desired the use of mine, told me that he had made but few variations . now it seems to me that the first translation of Fauchet's letter should convey its true meaning . " A REVEALING DOCUMENT CASTING LIGHT ON ONE OF THE EARLIEST SCANDALS OF THE YOUNG NATION 4to. One page on first page of single bifolium; two paragraphs, each signed, (the second simply "Edm. Randolph"). Fine. Docketed on verso of conjugate "Certificate from Mr. Randolph to Geo. Taylor"

        A Plan of Improvements in the Construction and Use of Fire-Arms Great and Small

      [London?], 1795?. First Edition. Orig. plain blue wrappers. A very good copy; blank endsheet filled with contemp. notes; backstrip reinforced with library tape. 8vo., One plate. A rare pamphlet printed by the author for private distribution. Butler cautions the reader against allowing copies to be made or losing the printed version. The pamphlet is a well thought out and ingenious method for improving the accuracy and fire power of a musket by introducing a bullet held in a paper cartridge and recommending other adjustments to dampen the vibrations along the barrel of the gun. The cartridge and chamber modifications are illustrated. Butler ends his pamphlet with a plea for the care of the foot soldier and offers brief but serious practical recommendations to improve comfort in the the field, e.g., how to waterproof shoes, and the prevention of serious illness (field latrines etc.). The autograph notes on the endsheet are possibly by the author. It is a lengthy commentary on a technical point of the trajectory of the bullet and the mechanical effect the cartridge system has upon it. It also notes that Butler's technical improvements to the lock and cartridge was (to be ?) tested at Woolwich by Hutton. ESTC dates it 1795?

        Fragments of Politics and History. Translated from the French.

      London: H. Murray, 1795 - 2 volumes, octavo (230 × 130 mm). Contemporary pale tan calf and marbled boards, flat spines ruled gilt in compartments, red morocco labels, all edges uncut, much of volume one unopened. Top edge a little dusty. One or two short marginal tears without loss, rear free endpaper to volume one partially torn away. A very attractive set. From the Gladstone library at Fasque, with their bookplate to each volume. Sole edition in English of a miscellaneous and wide-ranging collection of articles and short essays by the French dramatist and writer Louis Sébastien Mercier (1740-1814), best remembered for his utopian fiction l'An 2440, rêve s'il en fut jamais, translated into English as Memoirs of the Year Two Thousand Five Hundred. Mercier's keen observations on his surroundings and the journalistic feel of his writing meant that his work remained riveting despite the nature of its composition. "There is no better writer to consult," Robert Darnton writes, "if one wants to get some idea of how Paris looked, sounded, smelled, and felt on the eve of the Revolution." (The Forbidden Best-Sellers of Pre-Revolutionary France, p. 118.) Thomas Jefferson had six works by Mercier in his library. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Das Neue Testament unsers Herren und Heilandes Jesu Christi, nach der Deutschen Uebersetzung D. Martin Luthers.

      Michael Billmeyer, Germantown, PA 1795 - 16mo. Original full calf with both metal clasps present and fully functional. 537pp, (5pp). Front and rear flyleaves are fairly modern crude replacements; text block moderately age toned throughout, with mild occasional foxing. A tight and attractive second printing of this noted "New Testament" issue from the press of the well-known Philadelphia printer (1752-1837); the printing office and home in which this was printed still stands today; it was built in 1730, purchased by Billmeyer in 1789 and is supposedly the site from which George Washington directed his Continental Army forces in the Battle of Germantown. When Billmeyer and his father-in-law set up their Lutheran press in the 1780s, they acquired the surviving equipment of the reknowned Philadelphia printer Christopher Saur Jr., whose press the British had destroyed in 1777. The two small leather straps on this copy are old but not original, but all the brass clasp parts are present and attractive -- and it still clicks firmly closed. Despite mild wear, an exceptional copy. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

First Edition of a classic of North American travel. Hearne's journal holds an especially honoured place in the annals of Arctic exploration, and Hearne "will always be remembered as the first white man that ever gazed on the dreary expanse of the Arctic or Frozen Ocean from the northern shores of the Continent of America." (Rich) In 1769, he was sent by the Hudson's Bay Company to find a north-west passage from Hudson's Bay and to investigate Indian reports regarding the existence of copper deposits to the north. Hearne made two false starts, but on his third attempt, accompanied by the Chipewyan guide Matonabbie, he succeeded in crossing the Barren Lands and reached the Coppermine River, which he descended to the Arctic Coast. Hearne also discovered the Great Slave Lake and recorded valuable information regarding the natural history and Indian tribes of the region traversed. Shortly following his return, Hearne submitted his report to the Hudson's Bay Company, who kept it secret for some thirteen years. Its final publication, three years after his death, was due to the celebrated French navigator La Pérouse, who found Hearne's manuscript when he captured Fort Albany, Hudson's Bay, in 1781-82. When Fort Albany was subsequently surrendered to the British, La Pérouse stipulated, as one of the conditions of the surrender, that Hearne's manuscript be printed. Bell H94. Cox I p. 171.

        A journey from Prince of Wales's Fort in Hudson's Bay to the northern ocean: Undertaken by order of the Hudson's Bay Company for the discovery of copper mines, a north west passage, &c. in the years 1769, 1770, 1771, & 1772.

      London: Printed for A Strahan and T Cadell, 1795 xliv+458 pages with two (of four) engraved plates after drawings by the author (both folding) and four (of five) folding engraved maps. Quarto (11 3/4" x 9 3/4") bound in full leather with raised spine bands and gilt lettering to spine. (HillI, page 141. Sabin 31181) First edition.Manuscript journal was found by La Pérouse when he captured Fort Albany; later one of his conditions of surrender was that it be published. Samuel Hearne (1745 – November 1792) was an explorer, fur-trader, author, and naturalist. He was the first European to make an overland excursion across northern Canada to the Arctic Ocean In 1774 Hearne built Cumberland House for the Hudson’s Bay Company, its first interior trading post and the first permanent settlement in present Saskatchewan. From 1769 to 1772, Hearne was employed in north-western discovery, searching especially for certain copper mines described by Indians as "Far-Away-Metal River". These copper mines were found in the Barren Lands where the ground is permanently frozen to within a few inches of the surface, creating, in many areas, vast stretches of mosquito- and fly-infested swamp during the summer thaw. For this reason it was decided that travel in winter was preferable. His first attempt began on 6 November 1769. The large size of the expedition and too much European equipment being carried led to the desertion of his Indian guides and the failure of the expedition. His second, commencing 23 February 1770, failed because his quadrant was broken and much of his equipment was stolen. Learning from the mistakes of the first two expeditions Hearne contrived to travel as the only European with a group of Indians led by the great chief Matonabbee. The group also included eight of Matonabbee's wives to act as beasts of burden in the sledge traces, camp servants, and cooks. This third expedition set out in December 1770, in order to reach the Coppermine River in summer, by which he could descend to the Arctic in canoes. Matonabbee kept a fast pace, so fast they reached the great caribou traverse before provisions dwindled and in time for the spring hunt. Here all the Indian hunters of the north gathered to hunt the vast herds of caribou migrating north for summer. A store of meat was laid up for Hearne's voyage and a band of warriors joined the expedition. Matonabbee ordered the women to wait for his return in the Athabasca country to the west. The Chipewyans were generally a mild and peaceful people, however they were in a state of conflict with the Inuit. A great number of Indians joined Hearne's party to accompany them to the Coppermine River with intent to murder Inuit, who were understood to frequent that river in considerable numbers.[2] On July 14, 1771, they reached the Coppermine River, a small stream flowing over a rocky bed in the "Barren Lands of the Little Sticks". A few miles down the river, just above a cataract, were the domed wigwams of an Eskimo camp. At 1am on July 17, 1771 Matonabbee and the other Indians fell upon the sleeping Eskimo in a ruthless massacre. Approximately twenty men, women and children were killed; this would be known as the Massacre at Bloody Falls. A few days later Hearne was the first European to reach the shore of the Arctic Ocean by an overland route. By tracing the Coppermine River to the Arctic Ocean he had established there was no northwest passage through the continent at lower latitudes. This expedition also proved successful in its primary goal by discovering copper in the Coppermine River basin. However an intensive search of the area yielded only one four-pound lump of copper and commercial mining was not considered viable. Matonabbee led Hearne back to Churchill by a wide westward circle past Bear Lake in Athabasca Country. In midwinter he became the first European to see and cross Great Slave Lake. Hearne returned to Fort Prince of Wales on 30 June 1772 having walked some 5,000 miles and explored more than 250,000 square miles.Condition:Rebound in attractive leather with raised spine bands.
