      Volland, Libraire, Paris 1795 - Chez Volland, Libraire. Paris, 1795. 16 volumes + 9 planches (Tomo III). 19,5cm. Relié. Étienne Bonnot de Condillac, philosophe, écrivain, académicien et economiste français né le 30 septembre 1715 à Grenoble. 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.

        Morning or the Higlers Preparing for Market

      London: circa 1795. Colour printed stipple engraving with additional hand- colouring. In good condition with the exception of some small expert repairs. Lower margin repaired with loss of imprint. Image size: 16 3/4 x 22 5/8 inches. 18 7/8 x 24 1/4 inches. An unusually richly coloured image after Morland: 'a master of genre and animal painting, an artist worthy to be placed in the same rank as the best of those Dutch masters whom he studied as a boy' (DNB) George Morland was one of the most successful genre painters of his time, creating, during his industrious career, some of England's most cherished paintings. At an early age Morland displayed his artistic genius, he learned to paint at three and exhibited his first work at the Royal Academy at the mere age of ten. Morland was a prodigious painter, producing more than 4000 paintings during the entirety of his career, and sometimes painting two or three works in a day. His beautiful idealistic scenes were a favorite source of inspiration for contemporary engravers, and as many as 250 separate engravings were done of his paintings during his lifetime. This print expertly demonstrates why Morland is considered a master of English genre painting. In its depiction of a poor country family gathered around the father as he prepares to leave with his covered cart, the simplicity and rough beauty of rural life is neatly conveyed to the viewer in the two pigs in the foreground: in the charming wife pouring a drink for her husband, who is tying his boots; in the daughter, head bowed, who obviously doesn't want her father to go. "Higlers" was a term for country peddlars, who went from house to house, as well as markets, selling esential goods.

        Genua.

      Incisione in rame, colorata, 196x310. Quest'opera fu stampata in dispense dal 1784-85 al 1794 illustrata con stampe a carattere storico e sacro; dal 1794 fino al 1804 vennero introdotte anche le vedute, che rappresentarono poi l'unica illustrazione della rivista. Data la struttura dell'opera queste vedute sono molto rare e quasi sempre mancanti alle collezioni ed ai repertori specializzati. Questa veduta proviene da un album costituito attorno al 1840 da un collezionista tedesco. La veduta raffigura tutta le città con titolo su drappo appeso alle armi della città, 26 rimandi in basso ed al centro un medaglione raffigurante Carlo II. La stampa è ben conservata ma come le altre di questo album, rifilata alla battuta del rame.

Contemporary half calf (top of spines of 3 volumes sl. dam.) with red morocco labels on spines; index volume half calf (not uniform). With engraved portrait, 13 engraved title-pages, 52 folding engraved maps by C. van Baarsch and 134 engraved plates (mostly folding) by J.S.

'Cook earned his place in history by opening up the Pacific to western civilization and by foundation of British Australia. The world was given for the first time an essentially complete knowledge of the Pacific Ocean and Australia, and Cook proved once and for all that there was no great southern continent, as had always been believed. He also suggested the existence of antarctic land in the southern ice ring, a fact which was not proved until the explorations up the 19th century. Cook was a brilliant navigator and hydrographer, an excellent administrator and planner, and probably the first sea captain to realize the importance of preserving the health and well-being of his crew' (P.M.M. p.135). - (Some volumes sl. waterstained).Tiele 268; Cat.

        Signed Manuscript Regarding French Possessions in Africa]: Note Sur Les Possessions Francaises En Afrique.

      Paris 1795 - Paris, 19 Pluviôse, 3rd Year of the Republic [1795]. Folio (ca. 31,5x20 cm). 2 pp. Brown ink on watermarked laid paper. Manuscript in fine condition and housed in a custom made red gilt tooled quarter morocco portfolio. Manuscript signed by the Adjutant-General J.S. Grandjean is a summary of the main points of the report submitted by him in 1766, on his return from Gorée, to minister Choiseul. The report discusses the gold mines at Galam (Senegal), gum arabic that should be shared with the Dutch, and special water resistant wood found on the Island of Boulam. "The island of Gorée was one of the first places in Africa to be settled by Europeans., After the French gained control in 1677, the island remained continuously French until 1960., Gorée was principally a trading post, administratively attached to Saint-Louis, capital of the Colony of Senegal. Apart from slaves, beeswax, hides and grain were also traded., Étienne-François, comte de Stainville, duc de Choiseul (1719-1785) was a French military officer, diplomat and statesman. Between 1758 and 1761, and 1766 and 1770, he was Foreign Minister of France and had a strong influence on France's global strategy throughout the period. He is closely associated with France's defeat in the Seven Years War and subsequent efforts to rebuild French prestige" (Wikipedia). [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        TREATY OF AMITY, COMMERCE, AND NAVIGATION, BETWEEN HIS BRITANNIC MAJESTY AND THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, CONDITIONALLY RATIFIED BY THE SENATE OF THE UNITED STATES...TO WHICH IS ANNEXED, A COPIOUS INDEX

      Philadelphia: Henry Tuckniss, for Mathew Carey, 1795.. 283pp. 12mo. Contemporary calf, leather label. Calf rubbed and worn, chipped quite heavily along backstrip, hinges cracked. Uniformly tanned, scattered foxing. Ink stamp on titlepage. A good copy in contemporary binding, internally sound. The George Brinley copy, with his small book label on the front pastedown and his signature on the titlepage. This later American printing of Jay's Treaty, printed the same year as the first, is most interesting as an example of the hostility provoked by the treaty in the United States. The copious index is comprised of speeches and reports by members of Congress, town resolutions and memorials, newspaper articles and columns relative to the treaty. Also printed is the text of the U.S. Constitution, the two 1778 treaties with France and the 1783 treaty with Great Britain ending the Revolution. The second American treaty with England, negotiated by Supreme Court Chief Justice John Jay, this treaty sought to resolve diplomatic issues arising out of the 1783 peace treaty, settle commercial problems, and resolve neutral rights issues. By Jay's treaty, England agrees to withdraw from frontier posts in the Ohio country which the Americans felt to be clearly in U.S. territory, but the Americans agree to settle pre-Revolutionary debts, and the arrogant British searches and seizures of American shipping were not checked. The treaty provoked much hostile reaction in the U.S., and it was only the prestige of Washington, who felt the measure necessary, that it was passed by the Congress. BRINLEY SALE 4927 (this copy).

        The farmer's daughter, a poetical tale. By Christopher Anstey, Esq.

      Bath: printed by S. Hazard, for T. Cadell junr. and Wm. Davies, (successors to Mr. Cadell,) London. 1795 - 4to (240mm), 16p. Lacking half title. Recent wrappers. First edition. Jackson, Annals of English Verse p.199. In the first edition "To the reader" is printed on two pages (p.[5-6]), and the catchword on p.10 is "The" as here. In the same year a reimpression was issued without half title and with the addition of a leaf "To Mrs. Hannah More": in the reimpression "To the reader" is printed on two pages (p.[3-4]), and the catchword on p.10 is "Where". Iolo Williams Points in Eight-Century Verse. pp. 52-3, refers to this state of the text as "the second issue." Christopher Anstey (1724-1805). Much scarcer and a far cry from Anstey's earlier satirical poems. "To the reader" explains the scope and purpose of the poem. "This little piece is founded upon a circumstance which really happened in the course of the late very severe Winter, in which many persons were frozen to death; amongst whom was the unfortunate young Woman who is the subject of the following lines: she was the only daughter of a reputable Farmer, and is said to have been possessed of great beauty, and many excellent qualities; but was unhappily seduced under a promise of marriage, by an Officer in the army, and afterwards abandoned by him; and in following him to London met with her untimely death. The Author has attempted to put her melancholy story into a poetical, but simple dress, and shall think himself happy should he prove successful in this endeavour to set innocence upon its guard, and to promote the cause of virtue. He cannot help adding that he was induced to present these few stanzaz to your perusal, from his having lately seen many productions of a similar nature, published with great success under the protection of the very ingenious and benevolent Mrs Hannah More." Between the first edition and the appearance of the second a few months later, the poem had obviously won the endorsement of Hannah More. To the flattering mention in the preface is then added a formal dedication. Alas! She ne'er suspected Ill, Who never Ill design'd And void of Art, ne'er knew the guile Of Man's degenerate mind:" [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales

      London: Published by John Jeffryes, Ludgate Hill, June 15, 1795. Stipple engraving. In excellent condition. Image size: 19 7/16 x 13 1/8 inches. 22 1/2 x 1 7/8 inches. 23 3/8 x 16 7/16 inches. This portrait of George IV, is one of the most celebrated eighteenth century archery prints. The latter half of the eighteenth century witnessed the emergence of numerous clubs and societies which the English gentry were keen to join. The Society of Royal Kentish Bowmen, under the patronage of the Prince of Wales, later King George IV, is a perfect example of this burgeoning 18th century trend for exclusive sporting clubs. The Prince of Wales insisted that every member of the Society should wear a 'dandyish' uniform comprising of a grass green coat with a white waistcoat and breeches. In Russell's charming portrait, the Prince Regent is shown in the Bowman's uniform, in the background are the other members of the society participating in a shooting match. Russell's portrait not only identifies the Princes as an avid archer, but cleverly connects his person with the exclusive archery society. At the time of production this work was extremely popular both for its flattering depiction of the Regent, and for the publicity garnered by the Bowmen. This is a lovely impression from the collection of F. W. Hope (1797-1862).

        Valley of Glencoe

      London: Published by Robert Andrew Riddell, 1795. Colour-printed aquatint. Full inscription at bottom of print reads: 'To the Most Noble George Marquis of Tweedale & this View of the Valley of Glencoe is respectfully Inscribed by His Lordships most obedient Humble Servant.' Very good condition apart from some light soiling, minor foxing, and several small losses in the margins. 14 7/8 x 17 1/2 inches. 17 1/2 x 22 1/4 inches. A fine plate of the scenic mountains of Glencoe in the Highlands of western Scotland. This beautiful image is most likely part of a pair prints depicting Glencoe that Riddell published in 1795. Robert Andrew Riddell was a landscape painter, who primarily depicted the scenic topography of Scotland in watercolour. He exhibited one of his works at the Royal Academy in 1793 and gave several of his paintings to the Scottish poet Robert Burns. Archibald Robertson (1765-1835) was a Scottish artist, very talented in both painting and printmaking, who immigrated to America around 1796 (soon after this print was published) where he had a successful career painting miniature portraits on ivory. He also produced a number of topographical prints of New York City places: "Collect Pond" of 1798 among others. A number of his miniature portraits are in the collection of the Metropolitan Museum. This early work of the Highland valley Glen Coe is an extraordinarily fine landscape print, aesthetically superior to Robertson's American prints, and a fine example of colour printed aquatint.
