        NAVIGATION AND MATHEMATICS (spine title)

      ca. 1795, England [possibly Gosport] - 371 x 264 mm. (14 5/8 x 10 3/8"). 440 pp. Single column, approximately 29 lines per page, in an extremely neat, very legible cursive hand. Probably contemporary marbled boards, recently and expertly rebacked to style, thick raised bands embellished with and flanked by decorative gilt, gilt spine panels with large central fleuron. VERY ATTRACTIVELY ILLUSTRATED THROUGHOUT with numerous diagrams (two of them full-page), five hand-colored maps (four of them full-page), and 16 large and attractive vignettes at the beginning of chapters depicting English cottages and farms, castle ruins, and ships at sea. Paper boards a little soiled and chafed, upper cover with paper rubbed away in a one-inch patch and in three smaller spots, but the pleasing binding very carefully and sympathetically restored. One leaf with straight vertical surface crack almost the length of the page near inner margin (with a reinforcing paper strip on blank verso mending it but also causing faint discoloring from glue), another leaf with superficial four-inch cut of no consequence (probably from pen nib)--the text undisturbed in both cases--occasional very minor smudges or offsetting, other trivial imperfections, but IN FINE CONDITION INTERNALLY nevertheless, the leaves remarkably fresh, clean, and smooth. This is a very attractively illustrated compendium of mathematical knowledge and navigational skills that would be necessary for an officer in the Royal Navy. It is quite similar to a manuscript in the special collections of the Nimitz Library at the U. S. Naval Academy, which was a textbook or teacher's manual from the Royal Accademy at Gosport, founded in 1791 by William Burney as a preparatory school for young gentlemen wishing to join the naval, military and diplomatic services. Burney, who had an M. A. in mathematics, edited the 1815 revision of Falconer's "Marine Dictionary" and authored two books on the British navy. Like other maritime manscripts of this sort, the volume covers arithmetic, geometry, plane trigonometry, geography, navigation (at nearly 100 pages, by far the longest section), spherics, spherical trigonometry, astronomy, latitude, longitude, and marine surveying. There is also a section entitled "Days Work," which is an account of a voyage aboard the HMS Resolution in June of 1795. Much of the text is transcribed from standard works of the day, including James Atkinson's "Epitome of the Art of Navigation," Charles Vyse's "The Tutor's Guide," and George Fisher's "Arithmetick." The plane charts were probably copied from Edward Wright's "Certaine Errors in Navigation." The maps include charts of the eastern North Atlantic from Iceland to West Africa, Palmerston Island (discovered by Cook in the South Pacific), and the peninsula of Kamchatka. There are also watercolor charts of small lakes for use in textbook examples. This is an extremely attractive volume: the text is in a fluid, elegant, regular hand, and both the maps and the pen and ink drawings are carefully done, being highlighted especially by subtle shading. Their subjects of the drawings veer between ships in full sail and the quiet life in the English countryside that the sailors have left behind.

        Memoria sobre las observaciones de latitud y longitud en el mar. [Madrid], widow of Joaquin Ibarra, 1796. Narrow 4to (20.5 x 14 cm). With a woodcut crowned cypher monogram (of a Spanish Duke?) on the title-page and 7 folding leaves containing 13 numbered letterpress tables. Early 19th-century gold-tooled tree calf.

      Bibl. Mar. Española 265; Palau 5752 (noting only 6 folding leaves); Houzeau & Lancaster 10540 (1795 ed.); for Galiano: Howgego, to 1800, G6. Greatly expanded second edition of a treatise on the determination of latitude and longitude at sea, by Dionisio Alcalá Galiano (1760-1805), Spanish explorer, cartographer and captain in the Royal Spanish armada. His much shorter account (26 leaves instead of 45 and without the folding tables) was also printed by the widow Ibarra, in 1795. Galiano was a pioneer of the use of the chronometer in Spain, allowing him to produce far more accurate maps of the Spanish colonies in the Americas. Galiano enrolled in the Spanish naval school in 1775. After graduating in 1779 he participated in hydrographic surveys of the Spanish and South American coasts and other Spanish naval scientific explorations.Joaquin Ibarra (1725-1785) had been printer to the court of King Carlos III and Spain's greatest printer, vying with Bodoni and the Didots as a fine printer. His widow continued the tradition and upheld the quality of presswork and materials. The present book is well printed on fine Catalan laid paper by Joseph Llorens, who had supplied paper for Ibarra's famous 1780 Cervantes.A library stamp has been cut out of the title-page and the hole expertly restored, not affecting text or monogram. Otherwise in fine condition, with the paper still crisp. The binding is worn at the hinges but still good.

Absent à Cioranescu et à Cohen qui ne cite que l'édition de 1782 avec 24 figures de Borel, dont 11 figures libres ont été supprimées.

Reliures en demi chagrin rouge circa 1920. Dos lisse avec titre et tomaison dorés. Double filet sur les plats. Plats frottés. Le papier de garde est plus ancien, circa 1860. Manque le faux-titre du tome 1. Jolie série, non rognée. Très frais dans l'ensemble (trace de mouillure dans la marge d'une planche). Célèbre roman libertin dont le succès immédiat produisit 21 éditions en cette fin du XVIIIe. Ce sont des Mémoires narrée par son Héroïne, Félicia, dont le seul et unique but est la recherche de plaisirs. L'oeuvre reprend les thèmes classiques de la littérature libertine : dénonciation des hypocrites et faux dévots, sexualité sans entrave morale, critique des moeurs. Les scènes sexuelles sont décrites simplement et sans ambigüité, mais elles ne sont jamais crues ou choquantes. On ne saurait passer sous silence non plus la dimension parodique qui anime l'oeuvre et son ton de légèreté. Apollinaire en réalisera une célèbre édition en 1921.

        HISTOIRE DE LA CONQUETE DU MEXIQUE, TRADUITE DE L'ESPAGNOL D'ANTONIO DE SOLIS [manuscript caption title]

      [N.p., but France, 1795. [433]pp. Folio. Late 19th-century black half morocco and cloth, spine gilt. Corners rubbed. Front inner hinge cracked. Minor soiling, some contemporary ink staining. Very good. Manuscript translation, in French, of this classic history of the conquest of Mexico, first published in Madrid in 1684. Though undated, it is written on paper watermarked 1793 in a neat and uniform hand. A French translation had appeared as early as 1691, but this appears to be a different translation. The HISTORIA DE LA CONQUISTA DE MEXICO was reprinted in multiple editions in every European language and was popular on both sides of the Atlantic. The author was a noted Spanish dramatist and historian. His work includes theatre, poetry, and prose, and he has been considered one of the last great writers of Spanish baroque literature. This work remained the most important European source on Latin American history up through the first part of the 19th century.

        ICHTHYOLOGIE, OU HISTOIRE NATURELLE, GÉNÉRALE ET PARTICULIÈRE DES POISSONS

      Berlin: Chez l'Auteur, 1795. First Edition in French n. 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.. 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.

        Tableau des découvertes du Capne. Cook & de La Pérouse

      Paris, 1795. Slight toning, a well preserved example, now framed.. Engraved aquatint with original handcolouring, 440 x 530 mm. (sheet size). Rare and alluring hand-coloured engraving of the islanders of the Pacific, composed of twenty-four groups of inhabitants from new lands revealed through the voyages of Captain James Cook and La Pérouse. Sauveur's print has been long considered one of the most romantic and elegant depictions of ethnological subjects, and is much desired for its decorative qualities. Bernard Smith discusses the importance of Saint-Sauveur's costume studies in disseminating this exotic imagery: 'The engravings published in Cook's Voyages provided new visual information about many previously unknown peoples, and greatly enlarged Europe's knowledge of the family of man. Joppien has shown how important encyclopedias of costume and 'gallery of man' books were in this process of popular dissemination. But as artists copied the engravings so they altered them still further in the direction of European pre-conceptions, the anthropological and ethnographic intentions of the originals being diverted increasingly to fulfil the demands of taste and the intrinsic needs of decoration. A fascinating example is the hand-coloured etching by St.-Sauveur, the finest of the costume encyclopaedists of the late eighteenth century?' (European Vision and the South Pacific, p. 113).Grasset de Saint-Sauveur, was born in Montreal in 1757 and died in Paris in 1810. Like other artists of the period he was captivated by Pacific discoveries and here he shows figures from Nootka Sound on the northwest coast of America, Prince William Sound in Alaska, as well as Easter Island, Hawaii, Unalaska, Tahiti and Ulitea. As Forbes notes in the Hawaiian National Bibliography, Grasset's engraving was separately issued and was the only such large image by him to depict the peoples of the Pacific.

        Memoria sobre las observaciones de latitud y longitud en el mar. [Madrid], widow of Joaquin Ibarra, 1796. Narrow 4to (20.5 x 14 cm). With a woodcut crowned cypher monogram (of a Spanish Duke?) on the title-page and 7 folding leaves containing 13 numbered letterpress tables. Early 19th-century gold-tooled tree calf.

      - Bibl. Mar. Española 265; Palau 5752 (noting only 6 folding leaves); Houzeau & Lancaster 10540 (1795 ed.); for Galiano: Howgego, to 1800, G6. Greatly expanded second edition of a treatise on the determination of latitude and longitude at sea, by Dionisio Alcalá Galiano (1760-1805), Spanish explorer, cartographer and captain in the Royal Spanish armada. His much shorter account (26 leaves instead of 45 and without the folding tables) was also printed by the widow Ibarra, in 1795. Galiano was a pioneer of the use of the chronometer in Spain, allowing him to produce far more accurate maps of the Spanish colonies in the Americas. Galiano enrolled in the Spanish naval school in 1775. After graduating in 1779 he participated in hydrographic surveys of the Spanish and South American coasts and other Spanish naval scientific explorations.Joaquin Ibarra (1725-1785) had been printer to the court of King Carlos III and Spain's greatest printer, vying with Bodoni and the Didots as a fine printer. His widow continued the tradition and upheld the quality of presswork and materials. The present book is well printed on fine Catalan laid paper by Joseph Llorens, who had supplied paper for Ibarra's famous 1780 Cervantes.A library stamp has been cut out of the title-page and the hole expertly restored, not affecting text or monogram. Otherwise in fine condition, with the paper still crisp. The binding is worn at the hinges but still good.

        Manuscript on paper, 57 double-page folding leaves, with 95 mounted paper samples (ranging from 75 x 65 mm. to 213 x 225mm. in size) in many colors (but predominately red, blue, brown, & green) of leather designs. 4to (285 x 251 mm.), orig. limp boards, manuscript title label on upper cover "Onko sen'i" [trans. (more or less): "Respecting History"]

      N.p.: dated "1795" in the preface & on last leaf. Japan has always had a rich tradition of decorative leather work, employing the skins of deer, cows, monkeys, and horses. Our text was written by Nagatoshi Konda [Haruta] (1753-1800), and there are, apparently, several manuscripts surviving today. The text gives a history of each style of stenciled leather, the techniques of tanning, dyeing, and decorating the leathers, and their uses for the trimming on military costumes, decorative clothing, and leather accessories (arrow quivers, gloves, shoes, saddles, jackets, religious decorations for temples, etc.). Throughout the text, there are references to the classic chronicles of Japan, explaining how the patterns are based on historical incidents. Many of the patterns depicted had been used on uniforms worn by samurai in famous battles. The hand-drawn samples depict what seems to be an infinite variety of patterns, each of which is named. The text explains the meanings of the decoration, Minor worming, occasionally touching a sample or the text but nothing off-putting. There was a 1937 facsimile of another manuscript of this text published in Tokyo.

        Bill of Exchange addressed to John Madden Esq in London signed over by David Collins

      Sydney: 19 March 1795. Quarto, single leaf, 2pp., manuscript in ink on paper. An ephemeral example of the emerging New South Wales economy with a rare association. David Collins' (1756-1810) foundation account of Australia as an English colony, described in detail the ad hoc and haphazard method of payments that arose in the wake of the English Government's establishment of a remote penal settlement. As Judge Advocate, Collins was in a unique position to observe the difficulties associated with the shortage of any form of standard currency: Spanish coins, (or any foreign currency when available) barter, (notably rum), promissory notes and bills of exchange-- all were used. Later, as Lieutenant Governor of Tasmania, Collins was expected to meet the pay of superintendents and overseers from the proceeds of goods sent to the Hobart Commissariat for barter, and finding this impossible, ventured to issue "Colonial notes". It was not until the arrival of Macquarie and the creation of the Bank of New South Wales in 1817 and, after his departure, of the dollar standard, that a colonial monetary system along English lines was formalised.The monetary history of the Colony tracked broader social development and this Bill of Exchange narrates its early beginnings. "Apart from Commissary's and Paymaster's bills the available foreign exchange was limited to the scanty coin and few private bills. Private bills could only be drawn by those who had credit balances in London, that is, mainly the military and civil officers, and the rare settlers who had left balances behind them". Collins, with a stroke of his pen, was one of these. These instructions to pay him, signed by "Thos. Smyth" (perhaps a First Fleet marine later recorded as a storekeeper and merchant see Gillen, The Founders of Australia) is made to John Madden Esq. in London. On the verso, in Collins' hand are the words, "Pay the within Contents to - Charles Cox, Esq": perhaps the same Cox of whom William Balmain cast aspersions in a letter to D'Arcy Wentworth in 1802 " Beware of Cox's bills--Treasury ones are good, send as many of Cox's to pay merchants as you like, but none on private account". [See Butlin, Foundations of the Australian Monetary System]. A particularly early private Bill of Exchange and a rare example of Collins' signature. Provenance: Private collection (Sydney). In fine condition.

        Tai hyakuchin ryori himitsubako [trans.: Secret Treasury of One Hundred Sea Bream Dishes]

      One illus. in the text. 29; 29 folding leaves. Two vols. 8vo, orig. patterned wrappers, orig. block printed label on upper covers (rubbed, labels a little abraded), new stitching. Edo & Kyoto: 1795. First edition of this early work on the sea bream and its role in Japanese cuisine. This is one in the "hundred tricks" series of recipe books, which also included books on tofu, eggs, whale, rice dishes, conger eel, and devil's tongue, issued between 1782 and 1846. "An author who wrote under the name Kidodo dominated this genre of writings. Little is known about this mysterious author. Kidodo may have worked as a professional restaurant chef in Kyoto, where all his books were published…[one of his writings] refers to him as a cook (ryorinin), and invites readers to visit the author if they have any questions about food preparation…Judging from his publications, which are the only record we have for him, he was certainly prolific and imaginative…Kidodo wrote six of the sixteen hundred-tricks texts, far more than any other author. This is all the more remarkable for the fact that five of his books appeared in printed in the same year."-Rath, Food and Fantasy in Early Modern Japan, pp. 176-81-(& see the whole passage for more fascinating insights). Sea bream is a very versatile fish, used in many kinds of preparations. During the Edo period, sea bream was considered the "king of fish," and, having auspicious qualities, was frequently presented at celebratory banquets (weddings, New Year's parties, etc.). The recipes included in this work come from various regions in Japan. In the preface, Kidodo relates that he went around to all the leading families and asked for their favorite secret family recipes for sea bream. Rath, in error, cites 1785 as the date of publication. The preface is dated "1785" but the imprint is "1795." Very nice set.

Raccolta d?arie No. 158 [RISM M5142], of which there only seems to be one single copy extant. First performed in Vienna and Prague in 1791. RISM, Köchel (7. ed) p. 720, CPM 41 pp. 27ff.

Mozart / aguistata / Per il Clavicembalo » (cf. the Hoboken copy of this work !). On back of first cover page the following is written: « Cette Musique appartient à La charmante Lison de Calmette / et lui à ète donné a Fyrlitz en 1797 par son amie Lisa Divost ». The owner of the book may have been a member of the family Bosc de la Calmette, who settled in Denmark with Charles Francois Bosc de la Calmette (1710-1781). He was a Dutch minster resident in Copenhagen from 1759. Lison is perhaps identical with Anna Catharina Elisabeth (Lisa) Baroness Iselin (1759-1805), who married Charles Francois Bosc de la Calmette in 1777.Contemporary soiled blue-grey wrappers with early repaired back. Contents on the whole in good condition considering its age though with some staining and soiling. Extremely rare in this almost complete set and very rarely seen offered for sale.

        The Pleasing Instructor or Entertaining Moralist containing Select Essays, Relations, Visions and Allegories collected from The most Eminent English Authors, to which are prefixed New thoughts on Education. A New Edition.

      York: Published by Wilson, Spence and Mawman, [n.d., 1795?]. - Anne Fisher (1719-1778), the wife of Newcastle printer Thomas Slack and the mother of nine daughters, wrote a number of books on education. She Òwas no mere compiler; she wrote as an experienced educator. Her comments on the teaching of English grammar in the preface of her New Grammar continue to be pertinent and there is a modern ring, too, to her remark, in the introduction to her Pleasing Instructor, that: ÔAn austere or learned pedant has sometimes whipped Latin, Greek, &c. into a lad, whose very disgust to it increased, perhaps, with the Acquisition thereof; but it is a manifest absurdity to maintain or imagine that anyone can be awed into a Love of learningÕ (quoted in Oxford DNB). Fisher continues to lament the state of womenÕs education, believing that Òa young lady should be taught to think, reflect, and form a taste of life in.Ó Twelvemo, in sixes.

Early crosses in red crayon to pp. 69-71. We have not traced any professional performances in which Mlle. Naudet is mentioned, however the fact that this copy belonged to a female student at the Conservatoire in the early post Revolutionary years is intriguing. Binding slightly worn, joints cracked. Binder's hole to upper inner corner throughout; outer margins of title and gutter of some pages stained, occasional stains elsewhere; tears to several leaves repaired; portion of outer blank margin of pp. 279/280 torn away not affecting music.

The first Des Lauriers issue dates from ca. 1792. Dated according to publisher's catalogue and imprints. Didon, a "tragédie lyrique" to a libretto by Jean François Marmontel was first performed at Fontainebleau on October 16, 1783. "In 1783 Piccinni reached his second peak with a highly successful revival of Atys and the introduction of Didon, which momentarily eclipsed the rising star of Sacchini... The sixth and most successful of the nine serious French operas that Piccinni wrote during his sojourn in Paris, Didon continued to be performed there until 1836 and received performances in French and German translation throughout Europe during the first quarter of the 19th century."

      York: Published by Wilson, Spence and Mawman, [n.d., 1795?]. Later edition, probably pirated, of a book originally published in 1756. There were many reprints of this work, but all are rare. The present edition is cited in five locations, three in the U.K., and two in California (the Huntington Library and UCLA). Modern marbled wrappers. . Twelvemo, in sixes. . Engraved title-page, three engraved plates. Title-page very soiled. A decent copy of a scarce book. Anne Fisher (1719-1778), the wife of Newcastle printer Thomas Slack and the mother of nine daughters, wrote a number of books on education. She "was no mere compiler; she wrote as an experienced educator. Her comments on the teaching of English grammar in the preface of her New Grammar continue to be pertinent and there is a modern ring, too, to her remark, in the introduction to her Pleasing Instructor, that: 'An austere or learned pedant has sometimes whipped Latin, Greek, &c. into a lad, whose very disgust to it increased, perhaps, with the Acquisition thereof; but it is a manifest absurdity to maintain or imagine that anyone can be awed into a Love of learning' (quoted in Oxford DNB).

        Les citoyens français résidant à New York, écrivent à la Convention Nationale : A la nouvelle glorieuse de la prise de la Hollande par les armées de la République (26 juillet 1795)

      1795 - Placard in-folio, inconnu en Bibliothèque publique Le 1er février 1793, la Convention française déclare la guerre à l'Angleterre et aux Provinces-Unies. À la fin de décembre 1794 et au début du mois de janvier, les troupes françaises commandées par le général Pichegru traversent les bras gelés de la Meuse et du Rhin. Les comités révolutionnaires se soulèvent dans les grandes villes. Guillaume V est poussé à l'exil en Angleterre le 18 janvier et le même jour, le comité d'Amsterdam prend le contrôle de la municipalité de la ville « au nom de la République batave. » Arrivés en libérateurs, les Français se comportent bientôt en occupants et le comité de salut public refuse de reconnaître la nouvelle république tant qu'elle n'aura pas signé avec lui un traité de paix. Les négociations sont tendues entre les envoyés bataves Jacob Blauw et Caspard Meijer et la commission française composée de Merlin de Douai, Reubell et Sieyès, si bien que Reubell et Sieyès sont envoyés à La Haye à la fin du mois d'avril pour négocier directement avec les États généraux bataves. Ces négociations aboutissent au traité de La Haye, signé le 16 mai. Il prévoit une alliance offensive et défensive, la cession de la Flandre zélandaise, Maastricht et Venlo, ainsi que l'entretien d'une armée française de 25 000 hommes et une contribution de 100 millions de florins, somme énorme destinée à renflouer les caisses de la République française [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]
