The next five span the growth of civilizations and knowledge down to Descartes, and the ninth describes the revolution of Condorcet’s 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 Condorcet’s work is now remembered, and it is this which has given its lasting appeal" (Printing and the Mind of Man).

        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]

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

Edited by Sir Archibald Geikie. xvi, 278, xiii, [1] pp. 8vo, orig. semi-stiff printed wrappers (wrappers a bit worn & soiled), uncut. London: Geological Society, 1899. First edition, the final text complete with the uncommon third volume published more than one hundred years later. "In this edition the 1788 theory is restated with no essential change in the first chapter of Vol. I. The remainder of the two volumes deals principally with the supporting proofs and illustrations. Only two of the four parts promised on the title page were published in 1795. Hutton left an unfinished manuscript containing six chapters totaling 267 pages, evidently intended for inclusion in an additional volume of the Theory. These chapters, published as volume III in 1899, are of considerable interest, for they contain accounts of several of his later geological journeys. A study of the three volumes reveals the remarkable extent of Hutton’s geological knowledge, the thoroughness of his investigations, and the acuteness of his observations."–D.S.B., VI, p. 582. Hutton’s "fundamental conception — now accepted as a matter of course, but then entirely new — was the doctrine of uniformitarianism. The formation of the surface of the earth is one continuous process which can be studied entirely from terrestrial materials without cosmological or supernatural intervention. "His central ideas of uniformitarianism and of the effect of small changes in nature leading eventually to gigantic transformations have had far-reaching consequences in their influence on Charles Lyell and Darwin."–Printing & the Mind of Man 247. A very good complete set and now scarce on the market, preserved in a box. ? Dibner, Heralds of Science, 93n. Geikie, The Founders of Geology, pp. 280-316. Horblit 52a. Zittel, p. 71–"Hutton was thus the great founder of physical and dynamical geology; he for the first time established the essential correlation in the processes of denudation and deposition; he showed how, in proportion as an old continent is worn away, the materials for a new continent are being provided, how the deposits rise anew from the bed of the ocean, and another land replaces the old in the eternal economy of nature."

        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.

        ICHTHYOLOGIE, OU HISTOIRE NATURELLE, GÉNÉRALE ET PARTICULIÈRE DES POISSONS

      Chez l'Auteur, Berlin 1795 - One of the Great Ichthyological Works, with More than 200 Sometimes Silvery Fishes. 495 x 311 mm (19 1/2 x 12 1/4"). Six volumes (of 12) bound in three. Translated by J. C. Thibault de Laveaux. First Edition in French. Very pleasing recent retrospective quarter calf over marbled boards by Courtland Benson, flat spines attractively gilt in panels divided by five decorative gilt rolls, the panels featuring a central floral spray curling around a large volute, red morocco labels, EDGES UNTRIMMED. WITH ENGRAVED FRONTISPIECE PORTRAIT AND 211 (of 216) VERY FINE HAND-COLORED ENGRAVED PLATES OF AQUATIC LIFE, some heightened in silver. Nissen ZBI 416; Casey/Wood, p. 244; Dance, p. 56. "Avertissement" leaf at front of first volume a bit browned, isolated trivial smudges, but AN EXCEPTIONALLY FINE COPY, the beautiful plates in near-pristine condition with vivid colors and shining silver, the text clean, fresh, and bright with enormous margins, and the whole encased in an unworn convincing retrospective binding. This work is the masterpiece of Marc Éliéser Bloch (1723-99), one of the most important ichthyologists of the 18th century, an arresting publication famous for Bloch's use of silver to reproduce the sheen of his subjects, as well as for the overall beauty of the illustrations. Bloch adopted a Linnean arrangement as the basis for his work, but went further to establish 19 new genera and 176 new species. A German Jew who was born into poverty and who was illiterate in German until age 19, Bloch knew enough Hebrew to be hired as a tutor to the children of a Jewish surgeon. In that position, he learned to read German and some Latin, and began the study of anatomy and natural science that would be the passion of his life. He went on to attend medical school in Frankfurt, and became a practicing physician in Berlin, where he continued his scholarship in the field of ichthyology. He began publishing this work at his own expense, but it soon proved so popular that princes and patrons of the sciences rushed to contribute to the cause. Happily and atypically, the text and plates here are in superb condition, and the artful use of silver transforms even the most humble carp into a shimmering, iridescent beauty. The first French edition of what Dance calls "possibly the most beautiful book on fishes ever published" was produced by at least two different printers in Berlin: our set is composed of the first six parts, printed by Louis Philippe Wegener; Godefroy Hayn printed the second six parts, which are very seldom seen in the marketplace. The last complete set at auction seems to have been at Sotheby's in 1984, when it sold for £16,500 (roughly $63,000 in today's dollars); parts I-VI and IX-X were sold, also by Sotheby's, in 2000 for $32,500; the six other auction records in the past 35 years have offered only six or fewer parts. Accordingly, the cost of this item is meant to be advantageous, as the only complete set currently on the market is priced at $290,000. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

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.

        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).

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.
