        El Rey Reverendo en Christo padre obispo de la iglesia catedral de Arequipa, de mi consejo. En vista de lo representado por el Cura de la Doctrina de Chala Don José Narciso Dongo

      The Chala Doctrine; in what appears to be an exceedingly rare Limenian imprint. 1795. San Lorenzo [Lima]. In folio (280 mm x 194 mm). 2 ff. Custom made recent half calf over marbled paper, front cover lettered in gilt, virtually perfect. Insignificant pin hole sized marginal worm hole, excellent copy. A most intriguing imprint; claims to have been printed in San Lorenzo (Spain), but bears all the marks of having been printed in Lima (Peru). Vargas Ugarte, arguably one of the foremost Limenian bibliographers, gives it as a Lima imprint, but he was not able to locate the printing house, nor he could find but one single copy in the Library of the Seminario de Lima. Describes the conflict and absolution of Narciso Dongo, a priest from the Chala doctrine in Arequipa; his escape from Arequipa to Lima, the evolution of the trial and evidence, and Navio Aquiles. An extremely rare imprint. Vargas Ugarte en ?Impresos Peruanos? X, 316. Not in Medina

        Saturday evening The Husbandman's return from labour

      London: J. Brydone, 31 January 1795. Stipple-engraving, by William Nutter, after Bigg. 18 1/2 x 22 1/2 inches. 20 7/8 x 24 5/16 inches. A fine stipple engraving depicting a rural idyll in 18th-century England. The image shows a family outside the door of their cottage. The father has just returned from the field. His wife hands him his youngest child, whom he kisses fondly. His other four children are gathered companionably to his left: the eldest daughter sits quietly darning some stockings, her younger sister washes a younger brother. A second brother watches attentively as a pair of piglets eat the scraps from a wicker basket. What became known as the "deserving poor" was an ever growing Romantic concern throughout the 19th century, as the industrialization of England took hold. The Romantic ideal of families living in a hard but harmonious relation to the soil was already in 1795 fading away, as the long process of enclosure deprived people like these of the land they worked, forcing them to seek jobs in towns. So this was, at the time of publication, an already somewhat nostaligc look a rural family life. 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)

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

      London: William Pickering "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. . Hard Cover.

      Parma: Co' Tipi Bodoniani, 1795. FIRST EDITION (there is a variant first edition with different coloring of the plates). Hardcover. The Activities of Bodoni's Cupids Portrayed With Special Neoclassical Charm and Elegance. 298 x 225 mm (11 3/4 x 8 7/8"). [54] leaves of text (including engraved title). FIRST EDITION (there is a variant first edition with different coloring of the plates). EXTREMELY PLEASING CONTEMPORARY VELLUM, HANDSOMELY GILT, over substantial boards, raised bands, six spine compartments, four with (two different styles of) elaborate gilt diapering, two with labels, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. In an excellent sturdy buckram folding cloth box with leather label. Engraved pictorial title page and 40 VERY FINE SEPIA-TONED ENGRAVINGS featuring the activities of cupid among susceptible humans and allegorical figures, THE ENGRAVINGS WITHIN ELEGANT FRAMES OF NEOCLASSICAL DESIGN (the frames in black and white), the illustrations engraved by Francesco Rosaspina from designs by José Teixeira Barreto, the frames done by Giacomo Mercoli. Brooks 600; Graesse VI, 169. Corners a bit bumped, rear cover with two yellow rectangular stains (consisting of thin lines in the shape of the bottom edges of a book), very minor soiling to the vellum elsewhere, but the original decorative binding solid and with an especially attractive spine. Two leaves with trivial soil, otherwise AN EXQUISITE COPY INTERNALLY, the lovely plates richly impressed, the paper as bright and fresh as one could hope for, and the margins vast. This is a beautifully illustrated book that epitomizes the neoclassical style. Its 40 brief poems, written with elegance rather than passion, are all about love. The pictures and poems complement each other very well, both in their serene mood and their contents. The neoclassical line drawings are similar to, but a good deal more subtle and delicate than, the work of Flaxman, and the elegant frames, featuring cameos, shafts of wheat, griffins, and many other motifs inspired by the art of Pompeii, are described by Brooks as "of extraordinary delicacy." Giovanni Gherardo de Rossi (1754-1827), best known for his sprightly comedies, was a banker, poet, classical scholar, and critic. He served for a time as director of the Portuguese Academy of Fine Arts, which may explain the choice of the little-known but obviously talented Portuguese artist José Teixeira Barreto (also known as Giuseppe Tekeira, 1763-1810) to design the illustrations. Giambatista Bodoni (1740-1813) was simply the most important type designer, punchcutter, and printer in Italy during his day. He was responsible for some of the most graceful and immaculate books to be printed during the end of the 18th and beginning of the 19th century, and the present item is certainly to be counted among his most beautiful productions. The elaborately gilt vellum binding here is a style that is uncommonly seen, but it seems to be entirely appropriate for this work, lending an exterior refinement that clearly matches the volume's contents.

        Scherzi poetici e pittorici

      (Parma: Bodoni, 1795). Octavo. (52)ff. A collection of epigrams, sonnets, and other poems concerning love and featuring Venus and Cupid, by the Italian poet de Rossi. Elegantly illustrated with engraved title and forty images by Francesco Rosaspina after Portuguese artist José Teixeira Barreto. Each image has the background colored with a yellow wash with the exception of image 34 which is colored with a rose wash. This is one of a small number of copies without the borders or titles to the images. The book's text block bears the hallmarks of a Bodoni production, namely a clean typeface set on a spare, uncluttered page. With marbled endpapers and a binding of nineteenth century mottled calf decorated with a three-rule gilt border and gilt dentelles. The spine is in six compartments with red and black morocco title labels and four gilt ornaments. Small wormholes to spine head and foot, else a fine copy of a truly elegant book from one of history's great printers. Bookplate of Italian publisher and bookseller Leonis S. Olschki. A.e.g.

        A Narrative of Travels in Northern Africa, in the Years 1818, 19, and 20; Accompanied by Geographical Notices of Soudan, and of the Course of the Niger with a Chart of the Routes and a Variety of Coloured Plates Illustrative of the Costumes of the Several

      George Francis Lyon (1795 - 1832) was an Arctic and African explorer.  In 1818, he was sent with Joseph Ritchie by Sir John Barrow to find the course of the Niger River and the location of Timbuktu.  A year later they had only got as far as Murzouk where they both fell ill. Ritchie never recovered and died there, but Lyon survived and traveled further around the region.  A year after he left, he arrived back in Tripoli, the expedition being a complete failure.  This book recounts details of that expedition.  Upon return, he was promoted and in 1821 - the same year this book was published - given the command of HMS Hecla on his second attempt.  Lyon was reputed to have genuine informed interest in the culture and inhabitants of the lands he visited. Wearing Arab/Muslim dress and learning fluent Arabic he managed to blend in with the inhabitants of North Africa.  In the Arctic, he was tattooed by the Inuit and ate raw caribou and seal meat with them.  He was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society in 1827. This volume features the original half leather binding over marbled boards with leather corners, marbled page edges, and marbled endpapers.  The contents are superior - clean and bright with only light intermittent spotting.  The large folding map and all 17 hand-colored plates are present.  The only previous ownership marking are some collector notes in pencil on the ffep and a stamp stating "Withdrawn" from "The James Humphreys Collection" on the title page verso.  The original binding is preserved, but considerably worn at the edges.  The hinges are split and bear a crude leather overlay reinforcement at the top and bottom of the spine, which keeps the boards attached to the binding.

        Constitution de la Rpublique [Republique] Franaise Propose Au Peuple Franais par la Convention Nationale

      Paris, L'An 3 de la Republique Franaise une & indivisible. 8vo; 56 p. (a-c8, d4). Dated (p. 56): 5 Fructidor, l?an troisime [i. e., 22 August 1795]. Signed (p. 56) by Chenier, prsident; Dersey, Solignac, Bernier, Laurenceat, Dentzel, Quirot, secretaires. The French Convention Nationale, 1792-1795, had governed without a constitution. That of 1791 had been replaced by a more radical one of 1793, which was never activated. ?The post-Robespierrist Convention, continuing the reaction against popular revolutionism? elements of direct democracy that had characterized the earlier constitution were abandoned, but the new one preserved the basic changes brought by the Revolution" (see R.R. Palmer, Age of Democratic Revolution 2: 214). This edition seems to be unrecorded. It is signed by the members of the committee that drafted it, chaired by playwright Marie-Joseph Chenier (1764-1811). The edition seems to be an attempt to persuade the people to accept its terms. This Constitution was rejected by even more reactionary elements and led to establishment of the Directorate in October 1795. Not in NUC; not in Martin & Walter (cf. 4: 2: 4140). Stock#NS0005.

(segue:) Tomo Secondo. Che contiene il di lui ritorno nella sua Isola, e gli altri suoi nuovi viaggi..

      In Venezia, presso Domenico Occhi, 1795. 1795 2 tomi legati in uno in -8 (cm. 16 x 10,5) pp. VIII - 271 (1 b.); 311 (1). Leg. pergamena rigida dell'epoca con titoli calligrafati sul dorso. Con due antiporta figurate: la prima raffigurante Robinson Crusoe sull?isola, la seconda, lo stesso che si prepara per il secondo viaggio. Pubblicato per la prima volta nel 1719, viene considerato la prima novella scritta in lingua inglese. Il racconto, una biografia immaginaria, tratta delle vicende di un naufrago che passa 28 anni su una remota isola tropicale deserta vicino alla foce del fiume Orinoco. In questa lunga permanenza Robinson incontra indigeni, prigionieri fuggitivi, ammutinati, pirati, prima di essere ritrovato e salvato. Uno straordinario libro di avventure dove non mancano riflessioni profonde sulla sopravvivenza umana, sulla relatività del benessere e delle cose materiali. Quasi una nuova creazione, di un uomo solo che si ritrova su di un?isola deserta.

        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.

        Schweitzersches Museum. 1.-6. Jahrgang (1783-1790), 24 Bde. . Und: Neues Schweitzersches Museum (1793 - 1796; 5 Bde.).

      Kart.-Bde. der Zeit. (3 verschiedene Einbände), Gebrauchspurig, etwas stockfleckig Die Serie, ab 1793/94 "Neues Schweitzersches Museum", erschien bis zum 5. Jahrgang 1796. Hanns Heinrich Füssli (1744-1832), Schüler von Johann Jakob Bodmer, Johann Jakob Breitinger und Johann Jakob Steinbrüchel; ein Studienaufenthalt in Genf (1762-63) vertiefte den Einfluss Jean-Jacques Rousseaus, den er in Môtiers besuchte. 1763 führte eine Reise nach Rom zur Bekanntschaft mit Johann Jakob Winckelmann, der sein Verständnis der Antike prägte. F. nahm in Zürich an der sogenannten polit. Jugendbewegung (1762-68) teil; von 1765 bis zu deren Verbot 1767 war er Mitherausgeber der Zeitschrift "Der Erinnerer". 1765 wurde er Mitglied der Helvet. Gesellschaft (1773-81 Sekretär, 1782 Präsident). In der Folge wirkte F. als Lehrer und Historiker, Politiker, Verleger, Literat und Redaktor. In seinen polit. Anschauungen wurde er gemässigt patriotisch. 1775-85 war F. als Nachfolger Bodmers Prof. für vaterländ. Geschichte am Carolinum. Als Historiker arbeitete F. schon früh mit Quellen, u.a. in der Untersuchung über Hans Waldmann (1780). Er stellte Johannes von Müller seine Sammlung für dessen "Schweizergeschichte" zur Verfügung. F. stieg in die höchsten polit. Ämter auf: 1777 sass er im Gr. Rat von Zürich, 1785 im Kl. Rat, 1785-90 war er Obervogt von Erlenbach, 1790-96 von Horgen, 1793 Geheimer Rat, 1795 Obmann gemeiner Klöster. Im Stäfnerhandel (1794-95) nahm er eine vermittelnde Haltung ein. Während der Helvetik zählte F. zu den Unitariern: 1800-01 war er Mitglied und Präs. des gesetzgebenden Rats, 1802 Senator, Kl. Rat (Dep. des Innern) und zweiter Landesstatthalter (April 1802). Das Ende der Helvetik beendete F.s polit. Laufbahn; in Zürich, wo man ihm das Bombardement von Zürich (1802) vorwarf, konnte er jedoch das Grossratsmandat (1803-29) behalten. Ab 1770 war F. Mitbesitzer des Verlags Orell, Gessner, Füssli & Co., den er mit seinen Kenntnissen und seinem Beziehungsnetz zu einem führenden, der Aufklärung verpflichteten und die Volksaufklärung miteinbeziehenden deutschsprachigen Verlag machte. Hier gab er mehrere Almanache wie das "Schweitzerische Museum" (1783-90) und das "Neue Schweitzerische Museum" (1793-96) heraus und hier veröffentlichte er seine Reden und Schriften. Ab 1803 war F. Hauptinhaber der Firma Orell Füssli & Co. 1806-20 veröffentlichte er eine erweiterte Fassung des von seinem Vater herausgegebenen "Allg. Künstlerlexikons". 1803-21 war er als Redaktor der "Zürcher Zeitung" (ab 1821 NZZ) tätig.

      Bath, R. Cruttwell, 1795. Large8vo. Bound in later half cloth with gilt lettering to spine. Presentation inscription from the auhtor to top of title page: "From the Author". Title page and first few leafes with brownspotting, otherwise a fine copy. Lacking the half title. Pp. 3-8, 200 + the errata slip inserted after the title page.. First edition of this landmark work in scientific social inquiry; constituting one of the earliest microeconomic- and consumer behavior analyses. Davies profoundly influenced social history and initiated the entire field of consumer behavior analysis, two areas of study which were to dominate 19th century economics, relevant not only to economic and social history, but also to present day economic analysis. Davies's work anticipates Eden's "The State of The Poor" (PMM 249) by two years. In the present work, Davies discusses in detail the causes of the poverty of agricultural labourers in England, linking the high prices of goods with poverty, and proposes measures to relieve the labourers, including linking their daily wage to the price of bread. Davies's observations demonstrated the failings of the contemporary Poor Laws and was by many seen as a direct criticism of the central policy making (or lack thereof). "The differences in consumption of poor and rich families excited attention and often compassion, but apparently never quantitative analysis, for many centuries. Finally in England in the 1790's two very different investigators made extensive compilations of workingmen's budgets. [Davies in 1795, Eden in 1797]. Both were stimulated to this task by the distress of the working classes at this time." (Stigler, The Early History of Empirical Studies of Consumer Behavior). "Was bread Giffen? The demand for food in England circa 1790" (in Review of Economics and Statistics, 1977, Vol. 59, issue 2, pp. 225-29). Koenker developed a problem in statistical demand analysis using samples from the budgets recorded in these works. "Two seminal budget studies by .. .Davies ... and ... Eden are employed ... to investigate the place of bread in the diets of English rural laborers at the end of the eighteenth century. Because of the considerable geographical and temporal dispersion in prices of foodstuffs found in these budgets, they afford a unique opportunity to study the influences of both prices and income on individual household consumption decisions. In particular a test is made of the famous hypothesis, attributed by Marshall to Robert Giffen, that a rise in the price of bread, ceteris paribus, increases its consumption among the lower classes." The budget studies to which Koenker refers comprise the 70-page appendix. Davies began collecting statistical data on the poor in 1787 while a rector in the parish of Barkham, Berkshire. "He collected six detailed budgets of 'typical' agricultural laborers living in Barkham and circulated these budgets widely to friends throughout the kingdom. Some of these correspondents were persuaded to produce similar budgets for their own localities. In 1795 Davies edited 127 of these budgets, wrote a dispassionate plea for a minimum wage law tied to the price of wheat, and published both as The Case of Labourers in husbandry." (Koenker). In making the case for government intervention Davies attacks rampant ignorance and prejudice toward the poor, in particular the notion that the poor are profligate creatures of habit. "It is wonderful how readily even men of sense give in to this censure." (p. 31).Davies's studies "were the first examples of studies in that long and semi-honorable liberal tradition of econometrically snooping into the private lives of the poor. By the mid 19th century such studies were being conducted all over Europe by such notables as Ernst Engel, Frederick Engels, Frederick LePlay and others." (Koenker, Applied Econometrics)David Davies (1742-1819), English clergyman and social commentator, was ordained in 1782 and became the rector of Barkham parish, where he remained incumbent until his death.

      Dord: B. F. Morks, 1795. Bound with: ROUGET de LISLE. Autograph letter signed. 8vo (159 x 99 mm). 136 pp. Half-title, engraved title with revolutionary emblems. Very good, 2 or 3 marginal tears. Hand-colored etching of a Revolutionary tribunal cut round and mounted on front flyleaf. Modern marbled boards, preserving earlier gilt leather lettering-piece on backstrip (head of spine torn). Deckle edges. Tipped onto lower flyleaf is an ALS of Rouget de Lisle, dated 26 September 1827, signed in full Rouget de Lisle, one page, 8vo, with integral address leaf and postal inkstamp (trace of wax seal, small marginal loss to corner of address leaf).***& & Rare edition of 38 Revolutionary lyrics, opening with Rouget de Lisle’s “Hymne des Marseillois,” named the national anthem at around the time this collection was printed; with a tipped-in autograph letter signed by its author. & & Most of the songs supply the name of the popular tune to which they are to be sung. Included are the rare Hymne La Varseillois (Chanté sur différents Théatres, paroles du C. Delrieu, musique du C. Girout); Méhul and Chenier’s Chant du Départ, Hyme de Guerre, by “a Representative of the People”, later the official anthem of the Premier Empire; the popular and brutal Carmagnole des Royalistes, a song which long outlived the Terror; the awkwardly titled Couplets sur le danger de la patrie dans la nuit du 9 au 10 Thermidor; a Chanson Bachique et Patriotique, and various other chants patriotiques or civiques. OCLC lists 5 copies, all in Holland.& & Addressed to a Monsieur [Sautant?], a court usher (huissier audiencier pres des tribunaux) in Paris, the letter from Rouget de Lisle is an apology for neglecting a certain “trivial affair” which must be concluded with the addressee. He begs the huissier not to think that he has forgotten: "Victim of a difficult situation, duped by his own miscalculations and by the dishonesty of others," he cannot at present proceed, but hopes to do so during the first week of October (Au nom de dieu Monsieur, ne croyez point que je perde de vue la chétive affaire que nous avons à terminer ensemble. En proie à des circonstances pénibles, et dupe de beaucoup de mécomptes de ma part et de mauvaise foi de la part des autres, je ne puis faire ni ce que je pourrais, ni ce que je devrais. Je pousse à la [?] autant que je le puis, et, si ce n’est avant, ce sera dans les 1ers 8 jours d’8bre que j’en finirai avec vous.)

Några fuktfläckar här och var, i synnerhet i de inledande delarna. Planscherna som vanligt i svaga avdrag. Med C. J. Krusells namnteckning på titelbladet till del IV och Theodor Jacobssons exlibris.. Första delen i tredje upplagan, andra delen i andra upplagan. Planscherna signerade G. Broling och P. Lundmark. Första delen omfattar ett bihang med anmärkningar av dansken J. D. Michaelis, vars hundra formulerade frågor till en dansk expedition till Arabien 1761 var en direkt inspirationskälla till Ödmanns arbete. Den beläste Ödmann sökte dock svaren i den befintliga europeiska litteraturen, i stället för på plats i Arabien. "Strödde samlingar" innehåller uppgifter och resonemang kring de djur, växter och den natur som omnämns i bibeln och i arbetet med verket rådfrågade Ödmann bl.a. vännerna Thunberg, Tingstadius och Gjörwell. Henning Wijkmark skriver i sin biografi över Ödmann att "han åsyftade en bibelns rehabilitering i en tid, då geografiska och naturvetenskapliga feltolkningar ej mindre än den arkaiserande stilen på många håll förringat dess anseende." Ödmann själv skriver i sitt förord: "Jag har icke, vid utgifvandet, föresatt mig någon viss ordning. Blandade ämnen pläga mest behaga. Vid hvarje flocks slut bifogas någon uti skriften ryktbar orts naturalhistoria, då deraf någon upplysning kan tillfalla bibelforskare." En tysk översättning utkom i samtiden
