        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.

[KV 621] This fairly complete set (including Ouvertura PN 545, Marcia PN 546, Racolta d.Arie No. 159-169, 13 issues with 77 pp. in all) only lacks Duetto Come te piace imponi... 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. Haberkamp I, p. 379, Hoboken 12, No. 577-589. On front cover is a rectangular printed label with text : « La Clemenza di Tito / Opera Seria / Del Sigr. 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. [2], 360 pp. Engraved title-page, three engraved plates. Modern marbled wrappers. Title-page very soiled. A decent copy of a scarce book. 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). [Attributes: Soft Cover]

"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."

        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?]. 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). Fisher continues to lament the state of women's education, believing that "a young lady should be taught to think, reflect, and form a taste of life in."

        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]

Engraved title, (2 ll.), ii, 26 pp., (1 l. divisional title), pp. [27]-61, (1 p.), 27 ll. engraved plates, including the title and dedication leaf [the "General Plan" and the "North Elevation of the Church" are both double page plates]. *** FIRST EDITION. A new edition, with a resetting of type, but using the same copperplates, appeared in 1836. The great architectural publishing firm of Isaac and Josiah Taylor, later Taylor's Architectural Library, was closed in April 1834 upon the death of Josiah Taylor. The stock of the firm was sold at two auctions, held in October 1834 and January 1835. At one of these the copperplates for the present work were purchased by John Williams of the "Library of Fine Arts", who determined to produce a new edition of the work. He had the text reset by T.H. Drury and arranged to have the plates restruck. The dedication plate and list of subscribers, now redundant, were omitted. The former was replaced by a letterpress dedication to John Soane. The impact of this work was considerable: it was undoubtedly one of the seeds of the Gothic Revival. David Watkin notes that the book contained "the finest set of engravings of Gothic buildings ever to appear" in Great Britain. The majestic Dominican Church and Monastery of Santa Maria da Victoria, also known as Batalha, is situated eleven miles south of Leiria - still a fairly isolated location. It owes its name to the battle fought on the plain of Aljubarrota, nine miles southwest, where D. João I of Portugal defeated D. Juan I of Castile in 1385, securing Portuguese independence. In size and beauty iBatalha excels all other buildings of Portugal in which Gothic and Moorish architecture are combined. The building, begun in 1388, contains superb examples of intricate and exquisitely carved stonework. Plans and masons were procured from England by Queen Philippa of Lancaster, wife of D. João I (daughter of John of Gaunt and sister of king Henry IV of England). The work was entrusted to Afonso Domingues, a Portuguese architect, and David Huet (or Houguet, or Ouguet), an Irishman. Only the royal cloister, church and Founder's Chapel were included in the original design, and all show signs of English influence. Various additions were made up to 1551. The Capelas Imperfeitas, begun in the late fifteenth century but never completed, are among the best surviving examples of the "Manueline" style of architecture. Significant damage was inflicted by the 1755 earthquake, and in 1810 the monastery was sacked by the French. It was secularized in 1834 and declared a national monument in 1840. Since then there has been considerable restoration.The unnumbered page [62] contains "Directions for Placing the Plates".Born in humble circumstances in Blackrock, Ireland, James Murphy (1760-1814) was soon recognized for his artistic talents. After studying drawing at the Dublin Society, he became an architect in Dublin, where in 1786 he helped design the addition to the Irish House of Commons. Murphy's life found a new direction in 1788, when William Burton Conyngham commissioned him to make drawings of the church and monastery of Batalha. From two years in Portugal (1788-1790), Murphy produced three publications - the Plans, Elevations, Sections, and Views of the Church of Batalha (1795), Travels (1795), and A General View of the State of Portugal (1798). All are well illustrated with engravings and aquatints after drawings by the aut [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        General Marquis de Lafayette in America

      France: Pierre Charles Cior, 1795. Original. Round enameled tortoise-shell box. Near Fine. Pierre Charles Cior. Three-quarter's view gouache portrait of Gilbert du Motier, the Marquis de Lafayette (1757-1834), in the dark blue uniform with gold epaulettes of a Major-General of the American Continental Army during the 1780's; his image in flanked to his right by a tiny row of soldiers bearing weapons and a flag. This portrait miniature on ivory has been inserted into the lid of a round box made of toirtoise-shell with gold mounting and glass dome; (unframed image: 2.8" x 2.8" / 7.2 x 7.2 cm; framed: 3.2" x 3.2" / 8.1 x 8.1 cm); signed by Pierre Charles Cior, the French miniaturist, as "P. Cior" and dated "an 3e" or the 3rd year of the French Revolution, that is, 1795/96. This gouache portrait miniature on ivory is of the dashing young Marquis de Lafayette in the impressive dark blue uniform of a Major-General of the American Continental Army under the command of George Washington. One can see a faint line of soldiers to his right. It may have been based on a certain painting (possibly lost today), or an engraving--both from the 1780's. It was executed by the French miniaturist Pierre Charles Cior (1769-ca.1840) during the third year of the French revolution, i.e., 1795 or 1796. For comparables, see the oil on canvas executed by Joseph Boze in 1790; the engraving by François Séraphin Delpech in the National Portrait Gallery; and the oil signed and dated "G. Bevalet, 1788" sold by Skinner Auctions, June 8, 2008. The Marquis de Lafayette defied his government and left France at the age of 19 in 1777, hoping to serve courageously as a volunteer in the American war for independence from Great Britain. Already a skillful diplomat, Lafayette hoped for military command. In cooperation with Benjamin Franklin, Lafayette had already exercized important influence on the French king by trying to convince him of the need to increase France's financial and military commitment to the American cause. Lafayette was especially fortunate in his new relationship with George Washington, who took him under his wing, treated him like a son, and enabled the Marquis to serve honorably and with high rank in the Continental Army. (Subsequently, the Marquis named his own son "Georges Washington" in fond remembrance.) Lafayette was also a close friend of Alexander Hamilton and Thomas Jefferson. During the Marquis' service in the Continental Army, he spent most of December 1777 and January 1778 in winter quarters at Valley Forge with Washington and his ragged troops. The wealthy Frenchman spent significant sums from his own fortune to help the beleaguered and frostbitten men. He also supported Washington when rebellious soldiers during the "Conway Cabal" tried to compel their general to give up command. During his first action at Brandywine on September 11, 1777, Lafayette displayed extreme courage under fire as he led his men in an orderly retreat. During the skirmish, he was severely wounded in the calf, yet managed to survive. Thereafter, he was given command of a division of men. Lafayette also fought in the battles of Glouchester, Barren Hill, Rhode Island, Monmoth, Green Spring; and at the siege of Yorktown, where he blocked British troops led by General Charles Cornwallis and contributed to this major surrender of British forces. After the war with Britian had been won in America by the combined arms of Americans and their French allies, Lafayette returned to France, where he risked his life in inspired but vain efforts to bring democracy to his land. He sought a government of balance between competing interests and moderation that would support democratic values. At the outbreak of the French Revolution in 1787, when he was just 29, Lafayette was appointed to the Assembly of Notables. He lobbied for the convocation of the Estates General and became a deputy for the Second Estate. Two years later, he joined the newly formed National Assembly and was elected as its vice president. An empassioned advocate of individual rights, Lafayette took a lead role in the creation of the Declaration of the Rights of Man. On July 15th, immediately after the fall of the Bastille prison, the electors chose Lafayette to be commander-in-chief of the National Guard and military head of the new government. Though his views were liberal, and he sought a peaceful transition, Lafayette's important roles put him in a dangerous position between the royals, democrats, and radical revolutionaries. In October 1789, Lafayette led his troops at Versailles to protect the king and his family from a possible mob attack; then he accompanied the Royals back to Paris. In February 1791, Lafayette and his National Guard intervened in a stand off between armed nobles and a Parisian mob--later dubbed "the Day of Daggers." Discouraged by the rising violence, Lafayette tried to resign but was dissuaded from doing so. In July 1791, Lafayette felt compelled to order the National Guard to open fire on a dangerous mob at the Champ de Mars, a massacre that killed more than 50 rioters. This bloody incident shattered whatever respect Lafayette still enjoyed among the radical Jacobins and sans culottes. By mid-1792, Lafayette was serving in the regular French military but also urged the government to take strong action against radical political clubs.  As the revolution became more and more violent, Lafayette planned to use his troops to protect the royal family and to push for a limited monarchy. One of his last efforts was an unsuccessful attempt to rally troops to march on Paris after the dramatic royal journee of August 10th, 1792. His attempted intervention, however, prompted the radical government to declare him a traitor. Believing that the revolution was lost, Lafayette fled French territory to escape the Terror and surrendered himself to the Prussians and Austrians. The latter held him in detention until 1797. At the time this retrospective portrait was executed In 1795, Lafayette was being held as a prisoner of war in the fortress city of Olomouc (Olmütz) in Moravia (then part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire; today, the Czech Republic). Yet clearly, during this perilous time, the great Republican "Hero of the Two Worlds" [Le Héros des Deux Mondes] remained on the mind of many. One aspect of this miniature that is noteworthy is that whoever owned or commissioned this exquisite portrait did so to remember their incarcerated French hero in his high-ranking AMERICAN and brave military capacity. Might it have been a prominent American then living abroad (in Paris)? Compare the aquatint profile of Lafayette in 1795 executed by Edme Quenedey (1756-1830) and engraved by Ed. Gosselin. After Lafayette's imprisonment for active participation in freedom movements, he served in the post-Napoleonic national government of France and the July Reolution of 1830. During the post-revolutionary era in France, Lafayette returned triumphantly to the United States in 1824 for the 50th anniversary and celebration of the American Revolution. Due to his impressive activities, Lafayette had become an American and international hero as well as household name. His return was celebrated in communities throughout the United States. More than 30 towns were named in his honor, not counting numerous streets, squares, and parks also memorializing him in nearly every city in America. This painting is an absolute RARITY. It is not only a hitherto unknown portrait of this famous Frenchman as he appeared in impressive uniform during the American revolution, but also the earliest known work of highly skilled Parisisan miniaturist Pierre Charles Cior. Clearly SIGNED and dated in red : "P. Cior / an 3e" [3rd year of the French Revolution, i.e., 1795/96]. Pierre Charles Cior (1769 Paris -- ca.1840) was a pupil of Bazil. At the Salon of 1796, he exhibited a frame containing several miniatures, and, in 1799, two other miniatures. It was thirty-two years later in 1831 that Cior again participated at the Salon, making his final reappearance in 1838. The artist travelled throughout his career. The details of his itineraries are unknown, yet it is known that he was appointed a Painter in Miniature to the King of Spain, and that he also worked quite a lot at the Russian Court, where, among others, he did the portraits of the Emperor Paul I of Russia and his wife, of Prince Kourakin and Princess Poniatowska. He also painted Prince Eszterhazy, the Queen of Holland, the Duke of Luxemburg, Louis XVIII and numerous other prominent personalities. (See Nathalie Lemoine-Bouchard and Schidlof for more information.) The portrait has not been removed by us from beneath its glass. There is some evidence of tarnishing and oxidization to the inner rim of the thin strip of gilded brass surrounding the glass--not affecting the painting. Provenance: Private collection, Paris (as portrait of an unknown gneral); a prominent European dealer.

Watson at the Foundling Hospital and by Dr. Dimsdale in Hertfordshire, he was selected by Sir John Pringle in 1768 to proceed to Vienna to inoculate several members of the imperial family of Austria, Dimsdale having himself been sent for in July of that year to inoculate the Empress Catharine at St. Petersburg. Ingenhousz received early in 1769 'a pension for life from the emperor of nearly 600l., and was made body physician to Joseph II and Maria Theresa, and aulic councillor. He remained some years in Vienna, and set up a laboratory for physical experiments, which the emperor is said to have frequented. In his endeavours to introduce inoculation into Austria he was opposed by De Haën, then at the head of the medical school of Vienna (HÄSER). In 1775 he began to send researches to the Royal Society, the first of the series having been made at Leghorn in 1773 upon the torpedo-fish, a favourite subject of study in those days. He contributed nine papers in all to the 'Philosophical Transactions,' the last appearing in 1782; five treated of electricity and magnetism, and four of the atmospheric gases. In 1779 he came back to London, and was elected F.R.S. He appears to have spent most of his remaining years in England, a prominent figure in scientific circles, always willing to show his experiments to his friends, especially considerate, it is said, to young people, and noted for his simple and kindly disposition. When on a visit to the Marquis of Lansdowne at Bowood, in the autumn of 1798, shortly after Jenner's essay on cow-pox came out, he made inquiries as to the Wiltshire milkers' experiences of the alleged protective against small-pox, and formed an opinion adverse to Jenner's contention, but confined his opposition to a private letter, and declined further controversy. He was taken ill during a visit to Bowood in the autumn following, and died there on 7 Sept. 1799. Besides his papers sent to the Royal Society, his chief work was 'Experiments on Vegetables, discovering their great Power of purifying the common Air in Sunshine, but injuring it in the Shade or at Night,' London, 1779 (French translation by the author, with additions, 2 vols., Paris, 1787-9). This contained the discovery, also ascribed to Saussure, of plants in the sunshine giving off oxygen, and in the shade carbonic acid. A collection of his papers was published at Paris, 'Nouvelles experiences et observations sur divers objets de physique,' 2 vols., 1785-9. A collection in German was published by Molitor at Vienna in 1782. His work on the 'Respiration of Plants' also appeared at Vienna in 1786. A work in Latin, Vienna, 1795, called 'Miscellanea Physico-Medica,' edited by Scherer, is a series of his open letters to foreign savants, chiefly on questions of pneumatics. In 1796 he sent to the board of agriculture an essay on 'The Food of Plants and the Renovation of Soils.' An engraved portrait is prefixed to the 'Experiments on Vegetables.'."

Structured in the manner of Blackstone's Commentaries, Swift's System was the first original American legal treatise. Hhighly regarded throughout the United States, it presented an overview of the common law of Connecticut, and the common law generally, based on local court decisions and legislation. "More than a hundred years later it was still cited by Connecticut courts" (Woxland and Ogden). Published on a subscription basis, its subscribers included George Washington, John Adams, Aaron Burr, James Kent, James Madison and other notables. This book probably belonged to William Law, Jr., a lawyer and merchant active in Connecticut and New York City. He was a lawyer and land agent in the Western Reserve from 1798 to 1800. The annotations include a list of law titles on a rear endleaf, which may have been a reading list or inventory. Woxland and Ogden, Landmarks in American Legal Publishing 22.

        Memoria sobre proporcionar arbitrios para la construcción de caminos en esta jurisdicción.

      en la imprenta de Estevan Bolona, 1795. Jáuregui (d. 1809) was the "primer consul del Real Tribunal del Consulado" in Cuba, and it was the Consulado's "Junta de Gobierno" that ordered this report published -- although his was the minority report. At the crown's urging, such Consulados had been created throughout the Empire to aim at economic development and commercial improvement of the various regions of the New World under Spanish control, in good Enlightenment fashion. Public works and land use are traditionally fraught with concern and intransigence on the part of the various parties involved, and in the Cuban case at hand, this was certainly so; the Junta had appointed a four-member committee "para meditar los arbitrios que conceptuasen mas oportunos y menos gravosos para la formacin de caminos" ("to decide the tax rates that will be least burdensome but still will bring about the most timely creation of [good] roads"). Jáuregui's opinion was clearly and concisely expressed and shows a progressive tax structure differentiating users of the roads and the wear each category was most likely to create. => Handsomely printed on extremely good quality paper. Searches of NUC, WorldCat, COPAC, CCPB, and the OPACs of the national libraries of Mexico and Spain locate only three copies: two in the U.S. and one in Chile. One of the U.S. copies is incomplete. How many copies may be in Cuban libraries is unknown.

        Essays on Philosophical Subjects... To which is prefixed, an Account of the Life and Writings of the Author; by Dugald Stewart.

      First edition, 4to, xcvi, 244 pp. Uncut in recent full calf, period gilt spine with a red label, a handsome copy.Published posthumously, Smith had instructed his executors to destroy 16 volumes of his manuscripts just before his demise so as to concentrate readers' attention on his most famous works, "The Theory of Moral Sentiments" and the "Wealth Of Nations". Nonetheless his friends deemed that his concern with his posthumous reputation was an "excessive solicitude" and that these essays were of sufficient quality to be published. In the preface the editors Joseph Black and John Hutton conclude that "though it is difficult to add much to the great fame he most justly acquired by his other writings, these will be read with satisfaction and pleasure".
