        Cries of London, Plate 8, Round & Sound Five Pence a Pound Duke Cherries

      London: Published by Colnaghi & Co. No. 132 Pall Mall, 1795. A wonderful image of a cherry seller from Wheatley's famous "Cries of London" series. The "Cries of London" was a recurring theme in English printmaking for over three centuries. These colourful prints form a visual record of London's "lower orders", the peddlers, charlatans, street hawkers, milkmaids, and grocers who made their living on the city streets. They give the viewer a glimpse of a long forgotten London where tradesmen would advertise their wares with a musical shout or a melodic rhyme. Different versions of the "Cries" vary in tone from idealistic visions of contented street vendors to satirical caricatures of humorous urban figures. One of the most famous series of "London Cries" is the group of pretty pictures executed by Francis Wheatley. Wheatley's series was immensely popular and enjoyed a long period of success in the English print shops. Between 1792 and 1795 Wheatley exhibited 14 paintings of the "Cries" at the Royal Academy. The pictures attracted a great deal of attention at the exhibition and Colnaghi & Co. quickly agreed to publish a series of engravings after Wheatley's famous series. Only thirteen of the fourteen paintings were engraved and they were offered for sale individually or in a portfolio collection. The prints, which were executed in stipple, were engraved by some the most noted engravers in England; artists such as Luigi Schiavonetti, Giovanni Vendramini and Thomas Gaugain all contributed their work to the series. Complete collections of the "Cries" remained immensely popular, and by 1910 they were fetching more than James Audubon's folio "Birds of America" at auction. This lovely print is plate eight in the series and depicts a cherry seller weighing out a portion of cherries for two eager children. Roberts F. Wheatley, R.A. His Life and Works London, 1910, pp.28-32. Colour printed stipple engraving. Printed on wove paper. In good condition with the exception of being trimmed just outside the platemark on upper and side margins. A paper loss on the bottom margin has been expertly infilled. Edges of upper right and left corners are missing. Margins are scuffed with slight traces of surface soiling. Image size: 14 x 11 inches.

His Life and Works London , 1910, pp.28-32. Colour printed stipple engraving. Printed on wove paper. In good condition with the exception of being trimmed just within the platemark on all sides. Margins have some loss to surface of paper. Traces of glue residue on verso of sheet. Small sections of lost paper on upper and bottom margin has been expertly infilled. Image size: 14 x 11 inches.

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

      Agasse, ans III [1795], Paris - 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."

        The Works of Francis Bacon, Lord Chancellor of England (16 vols.)

      William Pickering, London - "A New Edition: by Basil Montagu, Esq." The most desirable edition of Bacon's works, this set in a contemporary binding by W.&E. Pickering of Bath; 3/4 brown leather over marbled boards w/ matching marbled edges and endpapers. Good plus; boards rubbed, leather scarred, top edges a little darkened. Each volume has the armorial bookplate ("Veritas Vade Sequor") of Robert Rae on the front pastedown and his signature on the first blank page. He must have had an extensive and significant library. I believe this is the Robert Rae born 1795 somewhere near Glasgow, whose son of the same name was one of the founders of the Scottish Temperance movement. Bindings are tight and pages are mostly bright and clean; there are a few places with minimal foxing. Points: there is no frontispiece in vol. 1, Essays (1825); facsimile letter appears after table of contents. Letter is foxed, but there is very little in the text around it. The folding plan of 'Advancement of Learning' in vol. 2, 1825 (following contents) has been misfolded and is browned at the edge but not torn. The first page of text in vol. 1 is labelled Vol. III; that of vol. 2 labelled Vol. I; that of vol. 3 has a tiny '3'. These three printed by "Thomas White, Printer,/Johnson's Court." Vol. 4, Natural History, 1826, has a frontis (somewhat foxed) of Bacon and an engraved fly-title page before the text. Printed by "Thomas White, Printer,/11, Crane Court." Vol. 5, 1826, has "Thomas White, Printer,/Crane Court." in the rear only; obverse of title page is blank. Vol. 7, 1827, has a frontis w/ 3 images. Vol. 8 has an engraved facsimile of the 1620 title page as a frontis. In vol. 9, 1828, Thomas White has moved back to Johnson's Court. Vol. 12, 1830; this and succeeding vols. have the printer's imprint: "C. Whittingham, Tooks Court,/Chancery Lane." This was Whittingham the younger, whose uncle and later partner had founded the Chiswick Press, which he was to take over on his uncle's retirement. It was the beginning of a long and very productive relationship between Whittingham and Pickering. Vol. 14 was published 1831; vol. 15 appeared in 1834, along with the final volume, 'The Life of Francis Bacon' by Montagu, numbered the reverse of usual, with the preface in Arabic numerals, and 498 pp. of text in Roman numerals entirely, followed by many unnumbered pages of notes, and an index to the notes. This vol. has the printer's imprint in the rear only, and the sheets are labelled 'Vol. XV', as are the sheets in the other vol. 15. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Documenting Declaration of Independence Signer Robert Morris's Financial Troubles

      Philadelphia, PA 1795 - Partially-Printed Document Signed. Promissory Note. Philadelphia, Pa., May 12, 1795. 1 p., 4 x 6 3/4 in. Endorsed on verso by Morris. Ink burn through the "R" and "b" in "Robt." Left edge irregularly cut. Partial Transcript"Three years after date I promise to pay Robt. Morris Esq. on order Four thousand Dollars, [signed] Jno Nicholson."Endorsed on verso in separate hand: "Exhibited to us under the Commission Against Robert Morris Philad. Sept 12th AD 1801." Signed by John Hallowell and Thomas Cumpston, the commissioners appointed to oversee bankruptcy proceedings after Morris had languished in debtor's prison for three years.With: Partially-Printed Document Signed. Notarized Indictment Against Morris. Philadelphia, Pa., May 15, 1798. 1p., 7 1/2 x 12 1/2 in. #23148.02Partial Transcript[ Peter Lohra] "at the Request of W. Samuel Allen went to the Compting House of John Nicholson drawer of the original promissory note whereof the above is a true copy in order to demand payment, But found the same shut up and no person there to answer or pay the said note Wherefore I left notice of the nonpayment thereof at the Compting House of Robert Morris the Indorser."Notarized and signed in the lower margin by "Peter Lohra, N. P."[At the top of the document is a transcription of the promissory note from May 12, 1795.]Historical Background The "financier of the Revolution," Robert Morris, along with John Nicholson and James Greenleaf, formed the North American Land Company in February 1795. Its suspect land speculation deals sent him spiraling into debt. He was eventually arrested and sent to a Philadelphia debtor's prison three years after signing this promissory note.Robert Morris (1734-1806), was one of only two men to sign the three most important documents in American history: the Declaration of Independence, the Articles of Confederation, and the Constitution. The Philadelphia merchant and land speculator was best known for his role as financier for the Continental Congress. With the national government virtually bankrupt, Morris risked his own personal fortune by purchasing supplies for the army, pressuring the states for cash contributions and securing a major French loan to finance the Bank of North America. He spent his remaining years in various public positions, including senator of Pennsylvania. Morris speculated extensively in Western land after the war, forming the North American Land Co. with James Greenleaf and Jonathan Nicholson. Soon after, however, the land market collapsed and Morris was ruined. The final blow came in 1798, when a minor creditor's claim sent him to the Philadelphia debtor's prison. It has often been said that while George Washington was president, he felt he could not pardon his long-time friend, but visited Morris in debtor's prison as a show of support. That story is only half true. Morris didn't enter debtor's prison until 1798, two years after Washington's presidency, so Washington couldn't have pardoned him, but he did visit Morris in prison, where the latter remained for three years until his wife was able to bail him out.John Nicholson (1758-1800) was a Welsh-born migr to Pennsylvania who engaged in a variety of business ventures in revolutionary-era Philadelphia. In 1778 he was appointed clerk to the Board of Treasury of the Continental Congress. In 1782 he was appointed state Comptroller General, involving him in the collection of taxes and the liquidation of Loyalists convicted of treason in absentia. In 1793, he was impeached for personally speculating in federal securities with state funds. He was acquitted but forced to resign because he was by this time a large public defaulter. In 1795, he joined Robert Morris and James Greenleaf in creating the North American Land Company, which invested in six million acres of lands in six states. Stung by the worldwide panic of 1797 and the Napoleonic Wars (which drove down the European market for American lands), Morris. (See website for full descriptio

        Ruins at the Ancient City of Gour formerly on the banks of the river Ganges

      published for Thomas Daniell for Robert Bowyer, London 1795 - Rich, romantic view of an abandoned, ancient Indian city by Thomas Daniell Gaur, or Gour, is the name of what was once both a capital city and country in what is now Bengal, not far from the India-Bangladesh border. Apparently founded in the 6th century, it was the site of a Buddhist kingdom ruled by a man named Gopala. The Pala Dynasty, known to its enemies as the Lords of Gauda, reigned during the 8th century, and eventually was supplanted by the Sena Dynasty. No written record of Gaur exists prior to the Muslim Conquest of 1198 however. Since then, plunder, plague, neglect and the jungle have ruled. In addition, the course of the Ganges changed over the intervening period, lessening the region's usefulness. Very little remains of the city that was once there. Thomas Daniell here drew one of the more enduring ruins, what is probably the Great Golden Mosque or Bara Darwaza. It is intriguing from an architectural history view for its pointed arch and what appear to be octagonal towers. The Daniells' Oriental Scenery is one of the finest illustrated works 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 lay in their ability to blend the picturesque with the real, resulting in images that captured the European taste for sublime landscapes, while grounded in and faithful to their subjects. The Daniells brought the romance of the English landscape to the antiquities of India and provided England with an evocative 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. Colour printed aquatint with hand-finishing by Thomas Daniell, on wove paper.

        Histoire Philosophique et Politique des Etablissements et du Commerce des Europeens dans les Deux Indes.

      Berry 3e de l'ere Republicaine [1795-6], Paris - 10 vols. + Atlas. Each text volume with copper-engraved frontispiece, those in Vols. II-X being after drawings by J.M. Moreau le jeune (Vol. I contains a portrait of Raynal); atlas with [4], 28 pp. text, 50 double-page copper-engraved maps by Rigobert Bonne (2 of which fold out as well), & 23 printed tables, many of them folding. Text vols. are (8vo) 8x4-3/4, atlas is (4to), 10x7-3/4, all in uniform period full mottled calf with gilt-roll borders, spines tooled in gilt, morocco lettering pieces, inner gilt dentelles, marbled endpapers, a.e.g. Sabin 68081 - Fine edition of Raynal's seminal work on the relations between the European colonial powers and their far-off conquests and domains, particularly noteworthy for the splendid atlas containing fifty maps by Rigobert Bonne. First published anonymously in 1770 in a shorter version, the book expressed strong sentiments against despotism, slavery, the established religious order, the Inquisition, and the colonial system in general. It was suppressed by the French monarchy, and early editions were produced in Geneva, Amsterdam, Lausanne, The Hague, London and elsewhere. The atlas maps include Europe and its various powers, the continents, the various portions of the world important to the colonial commerce of the Europeans (incl. the slave-producing districts of Africa), islands of the Caribbean Sea and Indian Ocean, interior parts of North and South America, etc. The profusion of tables are statistical in nature, esp. relating to France and her colonies. Sabin notes that "A large part of this work is said to have been written by Diderot, and others. The sentiments and criticisms contained in it prevented its publication in France; therefore the Abbé Raynal, according to Quérard, caused three copies to be first printed at Paris by Stoupe, one of which he left in care of the printer, the second he reserved for himself, the third he sent to Geneva to be reprinted as above. The book was condemned by the French parliament and church dignitaries, and Raynal was obliged to leave France." The present copy is finely bound in contemporary French mottled calf, and contains the armorial bookplates of Renaud d'Avene, Marquis de Meloizes; ink signatures of Chabaud de Linetiere to title-pages dated 1815. Just a little rubbing to the cover edges, a few corners just showing; minor offset to the title-pages from the frontispieces, else in fine condition. Photos included. Fine set.

Summary: First published in 1770 and running to over one million words, Raynal's "Historie philosophique et politique des etablissements des Europeens dans les Deux Indes" was an immediate bestseller that was to go through numerous editions in various languages. Taking a radical anti-imperialistic stance, the nineteen books that comprised the original work covered the history of European colonisation of India, the East Indies, China, parts of Africa, and the Americas. Much of the success, and subsequent reputation, of the Histoire was based on its attacks on tyranny, slavery and colonial exploitation, and it quickly became one of the basic texts for the humanitarian movement.

        A Topographical Map of the County of Sussex, Divided into Rapes, Deaneries and Hundreds, Planned from an Actual Survey

      London: W. Faden, June 4th, 1795.. A very large folding map of the county printed over four sheets, dissected and mounted on linen in two parts, each measuring 78 x 100 cm, i.e. 78 x 200 cm if joined, original outline colour, scale one inch to the mile. Original paper covered slipcase with the publisher's printed title label to the upper board and to the folded end sections of the map, one of the ends also featuring a later gift inscription from one E.D. Suter to a Miss L Verrall dated 1864. Small holes to the linen at a few of the intersections of folds and small splits to two sections, the slipcase worn but sound, a decent example overall. Thomas Yeakell and William Gardner first published their map in four sheets between 1778 and 1783, on a scale of 2 inches to the mile. The map drew on the massive advance in surveying techniques being made at this time which would be utilised in the first Ordnance Survey maps of the early 19th century. It proved a landmark map of the county and of large scale mapping in this country in general. This is the second issue of Gardner and Thomas Gream's updated version, the first issue having been a proof identifiable by the omission of the printed title, dedication and scale - Kingsley making the point that it was probably never offered for sale. Thomas Yeakell passed away in 1787, leaving Gardner, by now Chief Surveying Draftsman of the Board of Ordnance, and Gream to revise the map using data collected from the triangulated surveys of the OS. Appearing six years before the first official Ordnance Survey map, of Kent, this edition was the first ever map to be published based on their surveys. Kingsley, 57, (ii).

        La Révolution du département de la Vienne ; suite de celle du 9 thermidor.

      Poitiers, Imprimerie de Chevrier, an III, (1795), - 2 parties en un vol. in-8, 8-102-187 pp., table, demi-basane fauve, dos lisse orné de filets, guirlandes et fleurons dorés, tranches mouchetées (rel. de la Restauration). Dos un peu frotté, mais bon exemplaire. Ouvrage fort peu commun, dont Thibaudeau n'est que l'éditeur, et qui rassemble, après une introduction, deux parties comportant un titre, une adresse et une pagination distincts : 1. Procès-verbal des séances de la Société populaire de Poitiers, tenues sous la présidence du citoyen Chauvin, représentant du peuple ; avec les notes explicatives de la même société. - 2. Notes et pièces recueillies par le Comité d'instruction publique de la Société populaire de Poitiers, pour être jointes au procès-verbal fait par le citoyen Chauvin, représentant du peuple. Le sujet en est formé par les mesures prises par Chauvin à la suite de l'épisode de terreur que le conventionnel P.-S.

The first edition was a dissertation printed for private distribution only and is practically unobtainable. "Blumenbach was the founder of anthropology. he classified mankind into four races, based on selected combinations of head shape, skin colour and hair form. his famous terms 'Caucasian, Mongolian, Ethiopian, American, and Malayan' were not used until the third edition of 1795" (Garrison-M. 156). Blumenbach 'was preceded by Tyson and Linné who had prepared the ground for his studies by relating man to the order of the primates. Linné had distinguished four races of man chiefly by the color of their skin. From these premises Blumenbach was able to develop the thesis that all living races are varieties of a single species, homo sapiens, and that their differences were small compared with those between man and the nearest animal; "innumerable varieties of mankind run into each other by insensible degrees". It is not surprising therefore that Blumenbach was opposed to the practice of slavery and the then current belief in the inherent savagery of the colored races' (PMM). The inserted large folding map is not original part of this books. It was published in Allgemeines Archiv für Ethnographie und Linguistik, vol. 1, 1808. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
