        A description of the jail distemper, as it appeared amongst the Spanish prisoners, at Winchester, in the year 1780; with an account of the means employed for curing that fever, and for destroying the contagion, which gave rise to it.

      London: J. Johnson 1795 - 8vo., viii + 248pp., rebound recently in a fine 18th century style quarter calf gilt binding over marbled boards, with raised bands and crimson label, by Trevor Lloyd. A most attractive copy. First edition. James Carmichael Smyth (1742-1821), a scholarly London physician, was to be elected a Fellow of the Royal Society in 1799. 'Smyth's main published works were on gaol fever (typhus), contagion, nitrous acid, and the resultant controversy (1796, 1799, 1805); but he also wrote on swinging as a remedy for consumption in 1787 (better than sea voyages, he thought), edited the works of his friend William Stark (1788), and wrote a treatise on hydrocephalus. Smyth experimented with nitrous-acid gas for the prevention of contagion in cases of fever. At the request of the government he continued the experiments at the prison and hospital at Winchester, Hampshire, where there was an epidemic of typhus. He conducted a similar experiment to destroy contagion in 1795, on the HMS Union, a hospital ship which between September 1795 and January 1796 had taken on board 479 typhus sufferers from the Russian fleet. He heated crude nitre, presumably with carbon, and the oxides of nitrogen given off would, in fact, have been fatal to the lice which spread typhus, a disease not yet distinguished from typhoid. In addition, Smyth thought washing and cleanliness very important. For his experimental work, parliament voted Smyth in 1802 a reward of £5000. His claim to the discovery was disputed by Dr John Johnstone of Birmingham, for his father, Dr James Johnstone, and by M. Chaptal, for Guyton de Morveau. After a keen controversy, Smyth's claims were upheld. Shortly afterwards he was elected physician-extraordinary to George III.' [George Stronach, rev. Jean Loudon in ODNB]. The Spanish prisoners incarcerated in the old gaol at Winchester had been captured when Admiral Don Juan de Langara (1730-1800) had been defeated by Rodney in 'The Moonlight Battle' in 1780. Smyth suggests that to 'those who know the healthy situation of Winchester, the largeness and airiness of the prison wards, with the convenience and advantage of the airing ground, &c. &c. it will possibly be matter of surprise, that even a jail distemper should continue to rage for so long a time, and with such fatal violence, as was the case in the present instance'. He explains the particular circumstances of 'the seamen of Don Langara's fleet [who] had been long confined on board their ships before they sailed from the ports of Spain'. The sailors were dirty and had brought with them contaminated clothes and bedding. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        A VOYAGE TO BOTANY BAY, (BOUND WITH SEQUEL) with a description of the Country, Manners, Customs, Religion &c. of the Natives by the Celebrated George Barrington. To which is added his Life and Trial.

      London, printed by C. Lowndes for H. D. Sold by Symonds, No. 20 Paternoster Row, no date, circa 1795.. A very early edition, 1793, issued as a pamphlet, foreword dated "Parramatta November 1793". Small 8vo, bound in sixes, approximately 175 x 100 mm, 7 x 4 inches, engraved frontispiece titled 'An interesting discovery in the Woods', vignette on engraved title page (a view of prisoners landing at Sydney Cove), pages: title page, [2], [3]-120, bound in full modern mottled calf, gilt patterned border to covers, gilt raised bands to spine, richly gilt in compartments, gilt lettered red morocco title label, new endpapers.Two 19th century and one 20th century signatures on reverse of frontispiece, no show-through, light offsetting from frontispiece onto title page, fore-edge margin of frontispiece, title page and some pages within slightly trimmed, occasional small very pale marks or pale stains. A very good copy. George Barrington (1755-1804) was a notorious criminal known as 'The Prince of Pickpockets'. He served several sentences on board the prison hulks at Woolwich before being transported to Australia, where he later became Superintendent of Convicts and High Constable in New South Wales. It is unlikely that he had any part in the authorship of this pamphlet but the publishers used his name to lend authenticity and interest to the accounts of Australia that they were putting out including considerable detail on eighteenth-century New South Wales not available elsewhere. BOUND WITH: A SEQUEL TO BARRINGTON'S VOYAGE TO NEW SOUTH WALES, 1801 Comprising an interesting narrative of the transactions and behaviour of the convicts; the progress of the colony; an official register of the crimes, trials, sentences, and executions that have taken place: a topographical, physical, and moral account of the country, manners, customs &c. of the natives,- as likewise authentic anecdotes of the most distinguished characters, and notorious convicts that have been transported to the settlement at New South Wales. Same imprint with title page dated 1801, bound in sixes, pages: viii, [5]-88, [6], collated and guaranteed complete, the final 6 pages contain 'An official register of the crimes .. of the convicts in New South-Wales'. Occasional pale foxing otherwise very good. See Ferguson, Bibliography of Australia, Volume I, page 81, No.206 and page 125, No.328.

        [IMAGINARY VOYAGES] Découvertes dans la mer du sud. Nouvelles de M. de la Peyrouse, jusqu'en 1794 :

      traces de son passage trouveés en diverses isles et terres de l'Océan pacifique : grande isle peuplée d'émigrés français.A Paris : Chez Everat, imprimeur-libraire, [between 1795 and 1798]. Octavo, contemporary quarter calf over papered boards (rubbed, corners worn), spine with gilt decoration and stamped lettering 'Voyages au sud', front hinge weakened, pp 397, ii (errata), contents clean and crisp, a very good copy.Ferguson, 225; Forbes, 285; Sabin, 38958; variant issue with the word 'isle' on the title page spelt with a lower-case 'i'. An apocryphal work, one of numerous contemporary fictitious accounts inspired by the story of the disappearance of La Pérouse's expedition after leaving Botany Bay. The author, purportedly a Frenchman who has sailed with a Portuguese expedition to the South Seas, signs himself on the final page merely as 'C'. The narrative includes a description of a utopian society on an island near New Holland, inhabited by French citizens who have fled the Terror. The writer also encounters a survivor from one ofLa Pérouse's ships who relates the fate of the expedition - and of La Pérouse himself - in Hawaii. Rare. Copies are recorded in four Australian collections (National Library of Australia; State Library of New South Wales; University of Melbourne Library; State Library of Victoria).

        The Cabinet. By a Society of Gentlemen.

      Norwich: printed and sold by J. March. Sold also by J.S. Jordan Fleet-Street London 1795 - 3 vols., 8vo., (2) + vi + 310 + (2) and (2) + 318 + (2) and (2) + 318 + (2)pp., closed tear in one leaf of vol.III (but no loss), contemporary uniform calf with pretty red morocco gilt spine labels, a little wear to bindings, split in upper joint of vol.III, even so the bindings all sound. First and only edition and all published of this provincial periodical. With the first issue in vol.I dated 11th October 1794, the Cabinet> was a collection of primarily political, radical and economic 'Letters' with an evident bias towards Republicanism. (Each title-page is embellished with a device incorporating the Cap of Liberty). The authors of these essays inevitably included Amelia Opie (née Alderson) and her circle both in Norwich and in London. 'Amelia Alderson contributed fifteen poems to the first three issues. Increasing revolutionary violence and warfare polarized public opinion, however, and a large show trial of leading ‘English Jacobins’, including the Aldersons' acquaintances Thomas Holcroft and John Horne Tooke, was scheduled for November 1794. A month earlier Amelia Alderson had told Susannah Taylor that she was pessimistic at the outcome, that The Cabinet> was considered a ‘dangerous’ publication, and that the Aldersons and their friends would emigrate to the United States should the trial have a ‘fatal’ result. Horne Tooke was acquitted, and the government abandoned the other prosecutions; Amelia Opie later denied indignantly William Beloe's story that in her joy she had climbed over benches to kiss Horne Tooke.' [Gary Kelly in ODNB]. The essays in these volumes cover pretty well all the issues of the day: e.g. government, emigration, public finance, the 'rights of woman', population, war, education, popular societies, negroes, Habeas Corpus, the 'public mind', despotism, public charities, &c. &c.

        The Life of Dr. Benjamin Franklin Written By Himself

      Danbury: Printed and sold by N. Douglas. 1795. Stated (probably accurately) "Fourth American Edition." 12mo. 207, [1], [4]ads, [1]pp. Engraved frontispiece portrait of Franklin. Contemporary calf. Front fly chipped, corners a bit bumped, ink spots, antiquarian bookseller's label of William Salloch on rear pastedown, old bookseller's description tipped to front pastedown, sound and very good. With the ownership name of "E[benezer]. Foote" on front pastedown, and the later ownership names of two of his children, Charles and Harriet Foote (Harriet's name is inked over, causing some of the ink splash). The bookseller's description indicates that the owner was Connecticut soldier Captain Ebenezer Foote, who served with the Minute Men at Bunker Hill, was captured at the surrender of Ft. Washington, escaped and made his way to join Washington at Valley Forge and the Battle of Trenton. However, his health broke down and he was placed in the Commissary Department, where he was perhaps most notable for allowing Colonel John Andre to escape, albeit briefly, by honoring the pass that had been given to Andre by Benedict Arnold. .

        An essay on design in gardening, first published in MDCCLXVIII, now greatly augmented. Also a revisal of several later publications on the same subject.

      London: printed by C. Roworth for Benjamin and John White 1795 - 8vo., xi + (1) + 215 + (1)pp., including the half-title and with the errata on verso of p.xi, closed tear in one leaf (no loss of surface), bound in early 20th century green half calf, neatly rebacked, gilt and lettered, top edge gilt, others uncut. An excellent, crisp, copy, with the early 20th century armorial bookplate of William Henry Mason.> Second edition. Henrey 1034. Mason's anonymously published Essay on Design in Gardening>, first published in 1768 as a slight pamphlet of a mere 54 pages, 'intended to supplement the 'unconnected thoughts on gardening' in Shenstone's Works> (vol.2, 1764), shows familiarity with gardens in many parts of England, but refers to his own practice only in general terms. Its main theoretical concern is to draw a line between desirable contrast and undesirable incongruity. . In 1795 he published a revised and greatly enlarged edition (of the Essay>), in which he now disparaged the gardening theories of Thomas Whately and Uvedale Price. Whately was dead but Price hit back in the second edition of his Essay on the Picturesque> (1796-8), to which Mason responded testily in 1798 with two appendices to his own Essay>'. [James Sambrook in ODNB]. Mason's is, however, an acutely observed essay in which he not only reviews both the early and the contemporary literature of gardening, but also comments on estates laid out in the new style, amongst them Philip Southcote's Woburn Farm (now St. George's College, Weybridge), where Southcote devised his 'ferme ornée' style of garden; Charles Hamilton's Painshill, near Cobham, and William Pitt's Enfield Chase, in Middlesex.

        Copper token for Thomas Hall, taxidermist, London, 1795

      London : Thomas Hall, 1795. Æ halfpenny, diameter 30 mm, weight 12 grams. Obverse: Three quadrupeds. THE KANGUROO . THE ARMADILLO . THE RHINOCEROS. Reverse: T. HALL CITY ROAD NEAR FINSBURY SQUARE LONDON 1795 / THE FIRST ARTIST IN EUROPE FOR PRESERVING BIRDS BEASTS &c. Dark brown patina with reddish highlights and excellent detail; a superb example. During the 1790s the London taxidermist Thomas Hall produced a number of copper tokens to advertise his Finsbury Museum. At this time, privately produced copper tokens were a popular form of business promotion. These tokens went into general circulation and had a value equivalent to a halfpenny. They could also be redeemed at the issuing establishment for minted crown coinage. Hall was one of numerous taxidermists and menagerists in Georgian London who made a living by charging the public to visit their displays of exotic beasts and curiosities. The first public display of a preserved kangaroo in London was in 1789, in a concert hall near Haymarket. In 1795, when Hall issued this now extremely rare token, the display of this strange animal of New South Wales was still very much a novelty that attracted enormous public interest.

Giovanni Maria Cassini, Chierico Regolare Somasco fu geografo e cartografo, ma anche intagliatore di architetture e prospettive - uno dei migliori discepoli di Giovanni Battista Piranesi - Cassini fu uno degli ultimi sferografi italiani del Settecento ed i suoi globi ebbero una notevole diffusione, come pure questo "Nuovo Atlante Geografico".

L'Atlante del Cassini fu ristampato dalla Calcografia Camerale nel primo quarto del XIX secolo, prima del 1839. Solo gli esemplari di prima edizione come questo sono stampati su carta vergata coeva e sono colorati a mano in epoca. Le tirature del XIX secolo sono già su carta meccanica, priva di vergelle, e generalmente in bianco e nero. - FIRST EDITION, CONTEMPORARY OUTLINE COLOUR - The Italian painter and engraver, Giovanni Maria Cassini, produced this splendid 6 sheets wall map of as part of his epic three-volume atlas. Published in: Nuovo atlante geografico universale delineato sulle ultime osservazioni. Roma, Calcografia camerale, 1792-1801. Cassini was geographer and cartographer but he was also good at engraving architectural items and perspectives – he was one of the best disciples Giovanni Battista Piranesi had. Moreover, Cassini was one of the last artists to engrave spheres in the XVIII century and his globes were quite famous and widespread, and realized the most important Italian Atlas of the XVIII century; his maps always bear a cartouche, extremely rich in colours and details. Copperplate with fine original hand colour, some foxing, otherwise in very good condition. The Cassini's Atlas was reprinted by the Calcografia Camerale in the first quarter of XIXth century (before 1839). Only the first edition of the atlas is printed on contemporary laid paper, while the late issue are on XIXth century paper and often without colour. Dimensioni

        A summary of the duties of citizenship! Written expressly for the members of the London Corresponding Society; including observations on the contemptuous neglect of the Secretary of State, with regard to their late Address to the King.

      London: sold by R. Lee; D.I. Eaton; C. Riebau; J. Smith; and J. Burke. n.d. [1795]. 8vo., 28pp., including the half-title, thin strip excised from upper margin of title, presumably removing a name, printed surface not affected, recent marbled boards lettered on spine. A good copy. First edition: uncommon. Goldsmiths 16478. Not in Stammhammer. This 'strident attack on the Army, Church, and political institutions was accompanied by a very Godwin-like insistence on the progress of reason and opinion and the utter repudiation of recourse to violence' [Mark Philp, Reforming ideas in Britain,> 2014, pp.229]. Edward Henry Iliff knew William Godwin and was not only an active and dedicated member of the London Corresponding Society but also the author of Angelo, a novel, founded on melancholy facts> (1796), and A tear of sympathy!!! Or striking objects of travel> (1796). He and his wife were jobbing actors in London. Iliff's pamphlet on The Duties of Citizenship> is a remarkably vigorous attack on the ruling classes and their crushing control of the inferior orders. 'The genus of society contains two species of odious monsters; Tyrants and Slaves; the former term comprehends 'every description of beings that diminish the liberty of others': the latter word includes, 'all the unfortunate wretches who suffer such a mutilation of right'. ..... The Tyrants of England may be subdivided into several classes; the most fatal to felicity and the progress of benevolence, are Governors of all descriptions, Priests, Soldiers, and Lawyers! The Slaves of England can only be portioned into two lots - slaves through ignorance, and willing slaves. ..... the slaves of ignorance are to be pitied, but the slaves of consent are to be despised .....'.

        The Royal Captives: A Fragment of a Secret History Copied from an Old Manuscript

      London: Printed for G. G. and J. Robinson, 1795, 1795. First edition. NCBEL II, 698; Garside, Raven & Schöwerling 1795:50; Summers, Gothic Bibliography, page 489. Very good copy.. 2 vols, 12mo, modern brown buckram, maroon morocco labels, gilt lettering, untrimmed. Half-titles present. The only novel by Ann Yearsley (1753-1806), the interesting working class poet known as the "Bristol Milkmaid." The Royal Captives, based on the popular French tale of the man in the iron mask, uses the guise of a gothic thriller to examine favorite subjects of Yearsley's: class distinctions, political dissent, the misstreatment of women and the poor. Yearsley notes in her witty preface that she intentionally left the novel unfinished and implies that if the public demands it of her she will complete the tale. "Finis" is found at the end of volume two, but the novel was very popular and some months later Yearsley wrote and published two further volumes, not present here and much rarer the first two.

        Elementos De Orictognosia, ó Del Conocimiento De Los Fósiles, Dispuestos, Según Los Principios De A. G. Wérner, Para El Uso Del Real Seminario De Minería De México. Primera Parte, Las Tierras, Piedras y Sales. Segunda Parte, Combustibles, Metales y (*).

      Mariano Joseph De Zúñiga y Ontiveros, México, 1795 - 1805 - (*) Metales y Rocas, seguidos de la Introducción a la Pasagrafía geológica del Señor Barón de Humboldt, inédita hasta ahora con tres láminas. =Obra maestra del naturalista Andrés Manuel del Río, considerada la primera obra escrita sobre mineralogía de América. La obra fue publicada en por lo menos dos ediciones, una en 1795, en la Ciudad de México y la otra en 1832, en Filadelfia. = Portada - VI pp. - 11 tablas a doble hoja - XL pp. - 171 pp. y reverso. = y = Portada - XII pp. - 200 pp. - 1 hojas - y 3 grandes láminas plegadas. Muy conservado ejemplar encuadernado de época en piel. Lomeras con un tejuelo y florones al oro. Cortes pintados. ===El autor de esta obra, Andrés Manuel del Río, fue nombrado en 1793 profesor del Real Seminario de Minería, una institución que se acababa de fundar en la Ciudad de México tan sólo un año antes, en 1792. Este colegio fue el primero en toda América en ofrecer una enseñanza especializada en disciplinas técnicas y científicas. Los estudios estaban organizados en cuatro años, al término de los cuales los alumnos debían hacer dos años de prácticas, en cualquiera de los múltiples distritos mineros del imperio español. Pues bien, una vez instalado en Ciudad de México, Andrés Manuel del Río organizó en el Real Seminario de Minería un curso de mineralogía, considerado como el primero que se impartía en suelo americano sobre esta materia, y la presente obra debía servir como complemento y apoyo a sus clases. Tal y como se indica en el título, el contenido de este libro de texto se basaba en las tesis de Abraham Gottlob Werner, un científico alemán con el que Del Río había tenido oportunidad de estudiar antes de asentarse en América. Sin embargo, nuestro autor no se limita a repetir las ideas de su maestro, sino que introduce algunas observaciones críticas de gran interés, por lo que podemos considerar a este libro como la primera exposición crítica de las teorías de Werner escrita en español. Del Río también se inspira en las teorías químicas de otro de sus maestros, Antoine-Laurent Lavoisier, y por supuesto utiliza sus propios descubrimientos y estudios. En palabras de uno de los grandes colaboradores y amigos de Del Río, el naturalista alemán Alexander von Humboldt, los Elementos de Orictognosia son la mejor obra sobre orictognosia (esto es, sobre mineralogía) jamás escrita en la lengua de Cervantes. Más aún, constituyen el primer libro de texto de mineralogía que se escribió en América, así como un importante esfuerzo a la hora de importar métodos científicos y tecnológicos a la industria minera mexicana, y un buen ejemplo de cómo los nuevos descubrimientos europeos estaban introduciéndose en el Nuevo Mundo. La obra se publicó en dos volúmenes, con bastante tiempo de diferencia entre uno y otro: el primero de ellos vio la luz en 1795, al poco de la llegada del autor a México, en tanto que el segundo hizo lo propio diez años después, en 1805. Size: 2 Vols. De 22 x 15,5 Cm. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Description of a forty-feet reflecting telescope.

      - London, The Royal Society of London, 1795. Large 4to (29.5 x 23.2 cm). pp. 347-399, plus 19 folding plates showing a total of 47 figures, including the famous huge foldout plate of this enormous telescope. Contemporary half calf over marbled boards.l The forty-foot reflector telescope that William Herschel (1738-1822) built at Slough (near Windsor) in the late 1780's was at that time the largest in the world. It was compared in the popular press to the Colossus of Rhodos and other wonders of the world. The telescope is even mentioned on the Ordnance Survey map. The construction was supported by King George III, and built by Herschel, his assistant and sister Caroline. In this paper, Herschel gives detailed insight into the construction and functionality of the telescope. The article is illustrated with 19 plates, including the famous enormous foldout view of the telescope, and was published in the Philosophical Transactions for the year MDCCXCV (1795), Part II. This is the original edition, not the abridged one, with just one plate included in the Herschel paper. Additional papers of interest include the massive paper titled "An account of the trigonometrical survey carried on in the years 1791, 1792, 1793, and 1794, by order of his grace the Duke of Richmond." presented by the Duke. This includes a very large folded map of southern England from Dorchester to Hastings, and including the Isle of Wight. This edition also includes the illustration of a new transit instrument, and a rare early paper on marsupial ontogeny titled "Some observations on the mode of generation of the Kanguroo, with particular description of the organs themselves", by Everard Home, with fine illustrations. Boards rubbed and detached, spine cover mostly perished. Most plates, but not the very large telescope plate, a bit toned, especially in the margins. Otherwise a very good clean and unmarked copy.

        [L'amor contrastato, ossia La molinara]. Die Schöne Müllerin komisches Singspiel in zwei Aufzügen... Klavierauszug mit deutsch=und italienischem Texte... Pr. 3 Rth. [Piano-vocal score]

      Berlin: E.H.G. Christiani, 1795. First Edition. Scarce. Grove Music Online. OCLC no. 21830182. Robinson: Giovanni Paisiello A Thematic Catalog, p. 427. Not in BUC, Hoboken, or Hirsch. RISM P120. La molinara, to a libretto by Giuseppe Palomba, was first performed in Naples at the Teatro dei Fiorentini in the autumn of 1788. "Paisiello's opera attained great popularity throughout Europe over a period of four decades, rivalling the fame of his Il barbiere di Siviglia (1782). It received over 160 performances between 1790 and 1809 in Vienna, where its initial success was due in part to the cast of singers, which included the soprano Adriana Ferrarese, the bass Francesco Benucci and Gasparo Bellentani (one of the best buffo tenors at the Burgtheater)... The Act 2 duet 'Nel cor più non mi sento' was used as a basis for variations by a number of composers, including J. N. Hummel and Beethoven (WoO70). Beethoven also composed a set of nine variations for piano (WoO69) 'Quant'è più bello', an aria (not, however, by Paisiello) that was added for the revival of the opera in Vienna in 1795, which Beethoven probably heard. La molinara was also performed in German as Die schöne Müllerin and Die streitig gemachte Liebschaft... In this opera Paisiello proved himself a master of musical characterization... The opera bristles with melodic invention, and Acts 1 and 2 are ensembles organized as skilfully constructed chain finales." Gordana Lazarevich in Grove Music Online.. Oblong folio. Plain light brown wrappers. [1] (title), 2-87, [i] (blank) pp. Engraved. Text in Italian and German. Wrappers somewhat worn. Occasional light internal foxing; corners slightly creased; some leaves very lightly stained at upper margins; final blank page slightly soiled.
