        Sunday morning A Cottage Family going to church

      London: W.R. Bigg, 4 April 1795. Stipple engraving, by William Nutter, after Bigg. 18 1/2 x 22 1/2 inches. 20 7/8 x 24 5/16 inches. An excellent stipple engraving depicting rural piety in 18th-century England The image shows a family outside the door of their cottage making last minute preparations before setting off for morning service at the local church. The wife makes sure that the grandmother is comfortable on the family donkey: the grandmother holds her youngest grandchild in front of her. The father bends to talk to two of his younger children. All are dressed in their 'best' and look slightly uncomfortable. Only the second youngest, a daughter, seems unconcerned as she concentrates on annoying the family dog with a short stick. William Bigg "was a pupil of Edward Penny, R.A., and by choice of his subjects at least a faithful follower of his master. In 1778 he entered the Academy schools. Bigg delighted in depicting... children. The first of many engaging works of this class was exhibited in 1778, 'Schoolboys giving Charity to a Blind Man.' It was followed a year later by one similar, 'A Lady and her Children relieving a Distressed Cottager.' Besides these his 'Palemon and Lavinia,' the 'Shipwrecked Sailor Boy,' and 'Youths relieving a Blind Man' were highly popular works, and were all engraved. Two good pictures from his easel are preserved in the Cottonian Museum at Plymouth.... by choice of subjects and general manner of treatment he would rightly be classed with Wheatley and Morland. He was highly popular in his day, and the best engravers were employed upon his work." (DNB)

        A JOURNEY FROM PRINCE OF WALE'S FORT IN HUDSON'S BAY, TO THE NORTHERN OCEAN

      London: A. Strahan and T. Cadell. Bound in early 3/4 leather over black "pebbled" buckram. 1795. 1st edition. hb. 4to, pp.v-xliv,458. . First printed three years after Hearne's death in 1792, this account is taken from his manuscript and edited by John Douglas, Bishop of Salisbury. It contains a day-to-day record, with notes on natural history, of four expeditions (1769, 1770, 1771) northwest by land from Hudson's Bay. On the last trip, undertaken in 1771-1772, Hearne reached the Arctic Ocean at the mouth of the Coppermine River, becoming the first white man to travel overland from the Bay to the Arctic Ocean, and the first of his race to "gaze upon the dreary expanse of the Arctic or Frozen Ocean from the northern shores of the Continent of America" (Sabin 31181). See also Streeter 3652, TPL 445, Waterston 19. The copies referenced in these bibliographies differ in their collation: the copy seen by Sabin has four maps and eight plates; TPL four plates and three maps; and Streeter four plates and five maps. Our copy has but three plates (all folding) and three folding maps (Coppermine River, Moos River, Slude River). It also lacks the first four pages (pp. i to iv) which includes the title page. The binding shows wear, scuffing and rubbing, but the joints and hinges are strong. The contents are intermittently foxed, or soiled; for example, pp. 56 to 94 show an old tide mark to the inside bottom margins. The map of the Coppermine River has edge-staining. The Plan of Moos River is more stained. Overall, in strong condition and decent shape but, due to the absence of at least one plate and, possibly, two maps, plus the missing four pages, we offer it with all faults, and priced accordingly. .

        LE TEMPLE DE GNIDE. [and bound in, with continuous pagination] CÉPHISE ET L'AMOUR. [and] ARSACE ET ISMÉNIE

      Didot Jeune l'An Troisieme Paris: Didot Jeune, l'An Troisième, 1795. Hardcover. 260 x 165 mm (10 1/4 x 6 1/2"). xii, 153, [1] pp. Very attractive contemporary red straight-grain morocco in the style of Bozérian, covers with wide frame of multiple gilt rules, large gilt lozenge at center, flat spine divided into panels by gilt rules and chain roll, panels with pantera centerpiece, heavily gilt turn-ins, blue watered silk endleaves, all edges gilt. WITH 12 FINE ENGRAVED PLATES, INCLUDING A FRONTISPIECE AND NINE PLATES BY LE MIRE AFTER EISEN (in the first work) as well as two engravings (in "Arsace") after Le Barbier, one each by Le Mire and Thomas; original tissue guards. A Large Paper Copy. Cohen-de Ricci 728-29. Spine slightly sunned, corners a little rubbed, one page with small, light stain to text, one tiny marginal tear, other trivial imperfections, otherwise A FINE COPY--clean, smooth, and bright internally and in a lustrous period binding with only minor wear. With illustrations by Eisen, printing by Didot, and a binding in the style of Bozérian, this item brings together three important sources of pleasure for the connoisseur of 18th century French book arts. Regarding the "Gnide" engravings, Fuerstenberg says that "the delicate sensuality of the women's bodies glorified in these illustrations was never outdone," and he indicates that they represented Le Mire's "lasting claim to fame." Ray ranks this elegant suite behind only Eisen's work on Dorat's "Les Baisers," the La Fontaine of 1762, and the Ovid of 1767-71. He says that, "with regard to suavity and grace, Eisen never surpassed" his "Gnide" engravings, and Cohen-De Ricci says the plates are "ravishing," both in terms of composition and engraving. Bryan says that Charles Eisen (1720-78), Louis XV's Court painter, and drawing master to Madame de Pompadour, had a hand in "almost all the important [illustrated] books published in France in his time." His "exquisite plates [are] engraved with a light point and with striking originality." He "took his inspirations direct from nature, but add[ed] something of the ideal, after the manner of Watteau and Boucher." Noel Le Mire (1724-1801) was a much esteemed engraver who collaborated with Eisen on several books, including the aforementioned La Fontaine and Ovid, as well as with Cochin and Moreau. Attractively printed with enormous margins, the text of the first (and by far the most important) work here is a prose-poem on love (supposedly translated from the Greek) by one of the great political philosophers of the Enlightenment, Charles de Secondat, Baron de Montesquieu (1689-1755). Although the rather racy piece was popular in its day, it was not regarded as an important work in Montesquieu's oeuvre; modern scholars, however, are more inclined to see it as a philosophical fable. Our handsome binding is unsigned, but an imprint on the verso of the half-title lists "Chez Bozérian" as one of the two locations selling the work, and it is reasonable to assume they also bound some of the copies they sold.

        A System Of The Laws Of The State of Connecticut (Volumes I and II)

      First Editions Both volumes have recently been rebound in 1/2 dark brown calf and brown cloth covered boards with gilt text stamping on the spines. Both are small octavos measuring 8" by 5 3/4" with the pages of the text blocks uniformly tanned to only a slight degree. Without dust jackets as they most likely never had jackets. This set was the first American law text. Vol. #2 has the list of subscribers which includes George Washington, John Adams and a number of others in Washington's cabinet, but not Jefferson or Hamilton. (Aaron Burr is listed under one of the New York subscribers.) (Sabin, 94078) Everett Goodwin, whose doctoral dissertation The Magistracy Rediscovered: Connecticut 1636-1818, wrote that Swift's work was "a milestone for several reasons: it was the first comprehensive treatise on American law of any kind. It became a manual of instruction not only in Connecticut, but in much of the frontier region all the way to Ohio. And, most important, it was the first step in Swift's almost singlehanded articulation of a new paradigm for the concept of adjudication in Connecticut."

Tales of wit, practical jokes, and life lessons contribute to the mosaic. In addition to its literary import, it documents life in 14th-century Italy. A Beautiful 18th C.

Overall, a very good set. Rare, and very sought after in this large Quarto edition. Charles-François Dupuis (1742-1809), French Freemason, scientist, and scholar who held professorships at both the college of Lisieux (Paris), and the Collège de France. His "Origine de Tous les Cultes ou Religion Universelle" ("The Origin of all the Faiths, or Universal Religion") is a work of the greatest importance for the study of primitive religions and mythologies. In it he proposed that the mysteries of Greek religion and all other religions of antiquity have an ancient universal source - a tradition based on nature and the heavens. The names of the Gods were taken from the stars, and all mythology and religion, all legends and sages are an allegory of astronomical and astrological phenomenon. His work goes back to Ancient Egypt and forward to modern Christianity; Dupuis included a denial of Jesus' divinity which is perhaps why the book was placed on the Catholic Church's "Index Librorum Prohibitum" (The Index of Forbidden Books). The Atlas volume includes a fantastic allegorical frontispiece by Ducoudray and 22 double-page or folding plates depicting the Egyptian Astrological planispheres, The Tables of Mithra, the Calendar of Isis, the Distribution of the Four Elements, etc. There is much occult material contained within the book, including Astrological, Zodiacal, Cabalistic and Magickal tables of correspondences - not surprising as Dupuis was a Freemason. Frederick Hockley is known to have made use of the Dupuis' quotations from the works of Athanasius Kircher when compiling his manuscript work "Occult Spells". Contents include: (translated, the text is entirely in French): Volume One - First book, The Universal God. Worship of Nature proved by History. Remains of the Worship of Nature, marked in all Monuments. Second book: Tables of the Universe, its Divisions , and key Agents of Nature. Active and passive cause of Nature. Subdivision of the active cause or Uranus. The passive case and the action of Heaven on it. The two principles of Light and Darkness. The Universal Soul or animated world .

Histoire et religion forment la base de son programme, et il a insisté sur le fait qu'il était nécessaire d'établir une connexion entre les différents domaines d'études et la formation de l'élève à porter des jugements sûrs plutôt que de surcharger sa mémoire. Son système a été critiqué pour placer la philosophie et la psychologie avant l'acquisition des compétences de base. Reliure en plein veau marbré, dos lisse ornées, quelques défaut.
