        Plans Elevations Sections and Views of the Church of Batalha, in the Province of Estremaduras in Portugal, with the History and Description by Fr. Luis de Sousa; with Remarks, to which is prefixed an Introductory Discourse on the Principles of Gothic Architecture . Illustrated with 27 Plates.

      London, Printed for I. & J. Taylor, 1795. - Large folio (55 x 38.5 cm.), later red morocco (some wear at corners; a few minor scratches), spine decorated sparingly in gilt and blind with raised bands in six compartments, author and title in gilt letter in second compartment from head, date in gilt in fifth compartment, covers with borders decorated in blind, top edges of text rouged, other edges uncut. Illustrated with 27 leaves of engraved copperplates plus an engraved title. Occasional light foxing. In good to very good condition. Bookplates of Henrique Botelho and J.[osé] Pinto Ferreira. 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.

        Miscellanea Physica-Medica. Edit Joannes Andreas Scherer.

      - Viennae, Typis & Impensis A.A. Patzowsky, 1795, 8°, 209, (1) pp., alter Leinenband; zarter Stempel auf Titel, ansonsten frisches Exemplar. Rare - First Edition - 'Miscellanea Physico-Medica,' edited by Scherer, is a series of his open letters to foreign savants, chiefly on questions of pneumatics - - John Ingenhousz, "M.D. (1730-1799), physician and physicist, was born at Breda in 1730, and educated for the medical profession. He practised for six years in the Netherlands, and came to England in 1764 or 1765. After spending more than three years in or near London, during which time he followed the new practice of inoculating small-pox in its mitigated form, which had been introduced by Dr. W. 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.'."

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.

        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".

        Extrait du Procés-Verbal des Séances du Conseil des anciens. Du 29 floréal, an 4 de la République francaise [Auszug aus den Protokollen der Sitzungen des Rates der Ältesten. Nachricht].

      In der dritten Phase der Französischen Revolution, der sog. Direktorialzeit von 1795 bis 1799, behauptete eine von besitzbürgerlichen Interessen bestimmte politische Führung die Macht einerseits gegen die Volksinitiativen für soziale Gleichheit und gegen monarchistische Restaurationsbestrebungen andererseits. Die vom Konvent am 22. August 1795 beschlossene, nach einer Volksabstimmung am 23. September in Kraft gesetzte neue Verfassung, etablierte in Frankreich ein Zweikammersystem. Zunächst bestand ein ?Rat der 500?, der die Gesetzesinitiative ausübte ? und ein 250 Mitglieder umfassender ?Rat der Alten? (vorbehalten den über 40-Jährigen im Unterschied zu den mindestens 30-Jährigen im ?Rat der 500?). Dessen Zustimmung war zur Ratifizierung von Gesetzesvorlagen erforderlich. Der ?Rat der Alten? wählte aufgrund einer Vorschlagsliste des ?Rates der 500? ein aus fünf Mitgliedern bestehendes Direktorium, das die Exekutive bildete und die Minister der einzelnen Ressorts bestimmte. Um die Fortdauer der neuen Machtverhältnisse zu sichern, hatte der Konvent in einer Zusatzbestimmung festgelegt, dass zwei Drittel der neuen Abgeordneten aus den Reihen der bisherigen Volksvertreter stammen mussten. Die radikaldemokratische Opposition, organisiert von François Noël Babeuf, der seinerseits Neujakobiner und Frühsozialisten in einer ?Verschwörung für die Gleichheit? um sich scharte, bereitete einen neuen Volksaufstand gegen das neu eingesetzte Direktorium vor. Mit dem ?Manifest der Plebejer? präsentierte Babeuf ein den Thermidorianern fundamental entgegengesetztes Gesellschaftskonzept, welches eine sozialistische Gütergemeinschaft beinhaltete. Vorgesehen war ein für alle Bürger geltendes Recht auf Arbeit ebenso wie die Pflicht zur Arbeit. Darüber hinaus dachte Babeuf an eine gemeinschaftliche Arbeitsorganisation und Verfügung über die Arbeitsprodukte. Unmittelbar vor der geplanten Erhebung, die angeblich auf den 22. Floréal 4 (11. Mai 1796) angesetzt war, wurden Babeuf und die führenden Mitverschwörer am 10. Mai 1796 verhaftet, er selbst nach mehrmonatiger Untersuchungshaft und Prozess ein Jahr später zum Tode verurteilt. Das vorliegende Dokument protokolliert die wesentlichen Dokumente der Affäre. Darunter ein Brief Babeufs an das exekutive Direktorium vom 23 Floréal 4 (S. 2-6) sowie verschiedene Eingaben des Ministers der Polizei, Cochon, den geplanten Aufstand der Verschwörer betreffend. Das Protokoll erschien am 29. Tag des Monats Floréal (nach dem im September 1792 inaugurierten Revolutionskalender der Monat der ?Blume?, der vom 20. April bis zum 19. Mai dauerte), während das Erscheinungsjahr 4 auf das vierte Jahr der französischen Republik, also 1796, verweist. Bei dem vorliegenden Protokoll handelt es sich um ein Schlüsseldokument aus der dritten Phase der französischen Revolution, welches als Original nur noch in wenigen Exemplaren existiert. In Schutzumschlag eingefügte Broschüre mit Randläsuren u. Knickspuren. Stockfleckig.

        Miniature Portrait of General Tadeusz Kosciuszko; finger-ring watercolor portrait reset in brooch

      America or Europe: Polish School, 1795. original. Victorian silver-and-enamel brooch with gold back. Portrait: Very Good/Frame: Very Good +. Polish School miniaturist. Portrait miniature--head & bust--of Tadeusz Kosciuszko: watercolor (image: 1.4 x 1 cm / 0.6" x 0.4"; framed: 4.1 x 3.5 cm /1.6" x 1.4") executed on natural material; wearing a military uniform (blue body cloth with red trimmed collar & red sash with silver epaulettes. Because Tadeusz Kosciuszko was made a "Brigadeer General" in the American Revolution and a "Major General" in the subsequent Russo-Polish conflicts, his silver epaulettes and our provisional dating convey the high and prestigeous rank of "General"--an impression reinforced by three medals that are depicted on Kosciuszko's breast. Formerly a miniature watercolor portrait set into a male finger-ring, this delicate minature of General Tadeusz Kosciuszko (1746-1817), the famous hero of the American Revolution, Polish-Russian War of 1792 and the Revolt of 1794, has been reset into a Victorian brooch whose front has been made of silver-and-enamel with a green fabric background, glass dome, with gold back & pin. (Pressing the evidence: The tiny blurred image of the central medal on the chest of Kosciuszko is possibly suggestive of the enameled gold Eagle of the Society of the Cincinnati (founded in 1783) that George Washington (d.1799) awarded Kosciuszko. See the colored portrait by Karl Gottlieb Schweikart (1772-1855)--from Wikipedia and our image #4--which was executed in 1802 and depicts the Eagle award. Schweikart's portrait is, of course, much more refined and larger than our miniature, but the pose and age of the subject are rather similar, as are aspects of the uniform: red collar, medal(s) &/or buttons, and silver epaulette. Exceptional quality -- especially considering its micro size of 1.3 x 1 cm, or approximately a 1/2-inch oval! Andrzej Tadeusz Bonawentura Kosciuszko (1746-1817; his surname is roughly pronounced "Kos-CHOOS-ko") was a Polish military engineer and a highly skilled military leader who became a national hero in Poland, Lithuania, and the United States. He fought in the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth's struggles against Russia and Prussia, and on the American side during the American Revolutionary War. He worked closely with General George Washington, who was eager to use Kosciuszko's skills as a military engineer. Subsequently, as Supreme Commander of the Polish National Armed Forces, he led the 1794 "Kosciuszko Uprising." In 1776, Kosciuszko moved to North America, where--over an 8-year period--he took part in the American Revolutionary War as a colonel in the Continental Army. He fought in the battle of Fort Ticonderoga and executed the plans for the pivotal battle of Saratoga in New York. An accomplished military engineer, at Washington's request, he designed and oversaw the construction of several superior fortifications, including those at West Point, New York. The latter became the largest fort in America and took two and one half years to construct. Kosciuszko felt that it was his finest achievement. In 1783, in recognition of his services, the Continental Congress promoted him to brigadier general and made him a citizen. Returning to Poland in 1784, Kosciuszko was commissioned a major general in the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth Army. After the Polish-Russian War of 1792 had resulted in the Second Partition of Poland, he organized an uprising against Russia serving as its Naczelnik (commander-in-chief). Russian forces captured him at the Battle of Maciejowice in October 1794. The defeat of the Kosciuszko Uprising led to Poland's Third Partition in 1795, which ended the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth's independent existence for 123 years. In 1796, pardoned by Tsar Paul I, he emigrated to the United States. A close friend of Thomas Jefferson, with whom he shared ideals on human rights, Kosciuszko later abolished serfdom in Poland via the so-called "Manifesto of Polaniaec" and tried to enable peasants to own the land they worked. Jefferson said of him: "He was as pure a Son of Liberty as I have ever known."' The Polish-American hero also wrote a will dedicating his American assets to the education and freedom of U.S. slaves. Regrettably, the execution of his will proved difficult--Thomas Jefferson had been named as executor--and the funds were never used for the purpose he had intended.--adapting Wikipedia and other references. Condition: Very Good. Currently set into a Victorian brooch made of silver and enamel. Probably "Polish School" for creator. Our images show other portraits of this military-and-political hero. Illustrated gold watch with chain & fob is for illustrative purposes to suggest scale and is not included in sale of miniature portrait.

        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?]. 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."

        Essays on subjects connected with civilization.

      London: printed by E. Hodson ..... for C. Dilly. 1795. 8vo., (4) + ii + (2) + 293 + (1)pp., including the half-title, the first two leaves of text misbound (with a near-contemporary note to that effect), with the old ownership signature of 'Mary Hume 1800>' on title-page, contemporary mottled sheep, neatly rebacked and gilt preserving the old label. A very good copy. First edition. Although there are interesting chapters on education, government, religious establishments, manners and amusements, and on the arts, the author's most interesting chapter is that On the Female Character> (pp.257-285). It is one of the earliest critiques of Mary Wollstonecraft's Vindication of the Rights of Woman> (1792), published just three years earlier. Malkin supports some of Wollstonecraft's ideas but is unconvinced by others. 'There is no subject, which has been more uniformly and even wilfully misunderstood, than the appropriate character of the female sex', claims Malkin. 'Mrs Wollstonecraft has been successful in setting those prejudices in a strong point of view, which have prevailed to the exclusion of half our species from the common rights of humanity, and the unfettered exercise of reason'. (p.257). And Malkin considers Wollstonecraft's statements on 'sexual virtues' including 'modesty', the 'philosophy of lasciviousness', and education - Mary W.'s view was that boys and girls should be educated together, but himself is notably unenthusiastic about co-education. It was, he writes, 'a proposition that must be admitted with some hesitation. ..... But though I should be cautious in adopting the ideas of Mrs Wollstonecraft in this particular, I clearly see the propriety of frequent intercourse between young persons of different sexes .....'. 'On the whole,' Malkin concedes, 'the author of The Vindication> has rectified many erroneous principles on the subject of female manners and character, has displayed a meritorious zeal for justice and for liberty, and has produced a work, which properly qualified may be productive of beneficial effects'. Benjamin Heath Malkin (1769-1842), was a scholar notable for his connection with William Blake. He seems to have been close to radical circles in the 1790s, William Godwin reporting meeting Malkin at dinner at Horne Tooke's in 1796 and 1797. Malkin much later (1829) became the first professor of history at the new London University.

The order of crossing is indicated, with the grenadiers, a company of sappers and their equipment and as many calvary as possible going first to protect the disembarkation point. Kleber states that between three and four thousand men can be transported at one time. He urges caution, however, and suggests that experienced boatmen will be required to avoid possible loss of troops.

A Latin version by Johann G. Abicht appeared in Leipzig, 1732, with the title: Dissertatio de libro recti. In 1750 the London printer Thomas Ilive issued an English translation of the work asserting that he had published the real "Book of Yashar" mentioned in the Bible. The present copy is apparently the first U.S. edition. The work also has significance for Rosicrucians and Masons. The book has approbations by Isaac Nordheimer, H. V. Nathan, the rabbi of the synagogue in Kingston, Jamaica, Samuel H. Turner and pr Geo.Bush NY. Moses Samuel (1795-1860) by Saul Marks Moses Samuel (1795-1860) Moses Samuel was a watchmaker and Hebrew scholar, born in London in 1795. His father, Emanuel (Menachem) Samuel (c.1755-c.1800), had emigrated from Kempen, in the province of Posen, Poland, and settled in London c.1775. His father having died, Moses and his mother, Hannah (Hinde; 1752-1822), moved to Liverpool in 1805, where his elder brothers had already settled. He had very little formal education but was an outstanding linguist and is said to have mastered twelve languages, including Chinese! He established a business as a watchmaker and silversmith in Liverpool, and married Harriet Israel (1793-1843) in 1821. They had two daughters and three sons; the sons married three daughters of Schreiner Wolfe of Great Yarmouth, who was the first mayor of Kimberley in the northern Cape Colony, South Africa. Samuel studied the philosophy of Moses Mendelssohn, whom he called "the grand luminary of science and knowledge" and became the leading interpreter and translator of Mendelssohn's work in English. He published English editions of Mendelssohn's Jerusalem (1838) and the celebrated correspondence between Mendelssohn and Lavater, published as part of the former's memoirs. Samuel also translated the Book of Jasher (1840) into English. This was falsely alleged to be an ancient Hebrew text, but he still sold his translation for £150 to be published in New York. Sadly, due to a disagreement with his publisher over the authenticity of the Book, Samuel's name does not appear on it. Although his translation was accepted as accurate, many scholars criticised the claims of the text. Samuel fought hard against Christian proselytisation within the Jewish community, publishing anti-missionary pamphlets in 1819, 1822 and 1827. He campaigned for Jewish emancipation, and it was during a meeting about this in 1840 that he collapsed for the first time, probably due to a stroke. In 1845, a second attack would leave him paralysed. Nevertheless, he persisted in his literary work and earned a living as a language teacher in his later years. Although Liberal in his politics, Samuel was strictly observant of orthodox Judaism. He opposed the growth of the Reform movement, but he did accept some innovations in synagogue ritual, such as sermons in English. In 1846-7, in conjunction with the minister to the Liverpool Jewish community, DM Isaacs, Samuel edited Kos Yeshuot ("Cup of Salvation"), which was a monthly magazine "devoted to the advocacy of Orthodox Jewish principles", in which many contributions appeared in Hebrew with English translations. The magazine's publication of original articles in Hebrew on secular subjects was unusual for the period, particularly in England, and a good example of these is one by Samuel himself, celebrating the railway engine. Unlike his brother Louis Samuel (1794-1859), Moses remained a poor man, although he did compile a library of rare Hebrew books. He died at Ranelagh Place, Mount Pleasant, on 17 April 1860, leaving an estate of under £100. His jewellery and watchmaking business had taken very much a back seat to his linguistic and political work, and suffered badly in the process. However, by the turn of the 20th century, his son, Walter Samuel (1829-63) and his wife Harriet (1836-1908) transformed it into the first and most successful multiple-shop jeweller's in Britain: H Samuel (named after Harriet). Moses' great-grandson, Gilbert Samuel Edgar, served as company chairman from 1935-78. In a far cry from Moses' orthodox Jewish roots, one of his descendants included a Roman Catholic priest, Father Edward Hill, along with a Metropolitan Police magistrate, Geoffrey George Raphael. His great-nephew was Herbert Louis Samuel, the first Viscount Samuel.

        Musae Etonenses.

      London: G. Stafford,, 1795. Seu Carminum Delectus nunc primum in lucem editus. 3 volumes in 2, octavo (228 x 155 mm). Contemporary diced russia by Ingalton, titles to smooth spines gilt in compartments, decorative frame to covers gilt, turn-ins gilt, marbled edges and endpapers, green silk markers. Text in Latin in vols. 1 and 2, Greek in vol. 3. Spines lightly faded, slight bumps to tips, short closed tear to foot of title page of vol. 1; an excellent handsomely bound set. First edition, large paper issue, with the errata and list of subscribers, in a scarce and handsome Eton binding by Ingalton. This is William Herbert's first book, a collection of poetry in Latin and Greek, edited at the age of 17 whilst a student at Eton. Herbert went on to serve as MP for Hampshire and Cricklade, later being ordaining and serving as Dean of Manchester. He also gained a high reputation, "as a classical scholar, a linguist, and a naturalist", and published a number of books on various scholarly topics (ODNB). Volume one has the scarce Ingalton's binder's ticket to the rear pastedown; Ingalton, an Eton based book binder and publisher, reprinted the Musae Etonenses in 1817 with additional material. Despite the high number of binders operating out of Eton at this time it is unusual to find a signed binding such as this one. Additionally with the armorial bookplate of old Etonian Edmund Pollexfen Bastard to the front pastedowns. Bastard served as MP for Dartmouth and from 1816, Devon, succeeding his uncle and passing the seat of Dartmouth to his younger brother. As an M.P. he, "initially drew attention to himself only by the 'rarity' of his attendance, as Lord Granville noted in 1816"(History of Parliament). The whole presents a fine union of Etonian text, binder, and provenance.

VII. De la Constitution Française de 1795; Conclusion. Nel corso del XVIII secolo Ginevra, retta da un'organizzazione oligarchica monopolizzata dal patriziato, dovette far fronte, nelle nuove condizioni create dallo sviluppo bancario e industriale, a numerosi tentativi di rivolta dei rappresentanti borghesi che erano stati privati dei diritti politici: sommosse si verificarono nel 1707, nel 1738, nel 1766-1768 e nel 1782. Questi tentativi insurrezionali precedettero la rivoluzione del 1794, sulla quale influì anche la propaganda francese. L'instaurazione di un governo rivoluzionario preparò poi l'unione della città con la Francia (1798) e Ginevra divenne capoluogo del dipartimento del Lemano. Nel 1814 essa riacquistò la propria indipendenza e, accresciuta di alcuni territori, entrò come cantone nella Confederazione Elvetica (12 settembre 1814). Più tardi (1815) la nuova situazione fu sancita dal trattato di Vienna. François d'Ivernois (1757-1842) avvocato e uomo politico ginevrino. Nel 1782 ottenne un seggio al Consiglio dei Duecento ma fu condannato all'esilio: stabilitosi in Inghilterra, rientrò a Ginevra nel 1792. Valente pubblicista e scrittore finanziario, fu un tenace e un fermo oppositore della Francia, contro il cui governo pubblicò violenti scritti.

        Amsterdam antieke plattegrond.

      ?Plan Nouveau & tr?s exact de la Ville d?Amsteldam. Nieuwe Platte Grond der Stad Amsteldam??Kopergravure vervaardigd door C. van Baarsel in 1795, gecorrigeerd en gedrukt van twee platen in 1820 bij Mortier, Covens en Zoon. Later met de hand gekleurd. Afm. (voorstelling): 54,5 x 94 cm.Uitgeverij Mortier, Covens en Zoon is waarschijnlijk in 1794 begonnen met het vervaardigen van deze kaart. Hij kwam gereed tijdens het eerste jaar van de Bataafse Republiek (1795-1801). Het was een staatsvorm die de voormalige Republiek der Zeven Verenigde Nederlanden met hun Generaliteitslanden bestuurde. In de aanloop hiertoe bezette het Franse Noorderleger onder commando van brigade-generaal Charles Pichegru op 19 januari 1795 Amsterdam. Via en fluwelen revolutie werden de zittende regenten vervangen door bestuurders met Franse sympathie?n.Er volgenden verschillende uitgaven van de kaart, met telkens kleine veranderingen in de decoraties of het kaartbeeld die de woelige geschiedenis van ons land weerspiegelen: de Bataafse tijd, de jaren van koning Lodewijk Napoleon, de jaren van inlijving bij het Franse keizerrijk onder Napoleon en de eerste jaren daarna. Zo heet op dit exemplaar uit 1820 de Dam weer Den Dam en niet meer het Revolutie Plein of Plein Napoleon, heet ?t Burgerplein weer Koningsplein is het stadhuis inmiddels paleis en is de waag op de Dam inmiddels afgebroken.Prijs: ?3.450,- (incl. lijst).

        Amsterdam - Renier Vinkeles, 1795.

      AMSTERDAM AAN HET BEGIN VAN DE FRANSE TIJD?Feest der alliantie tusschen de Fransche en Bataafsche Republieken, gevierd te Amsterdam, op het Plein der Revolutie den 19den Junij, 1795. Het eerste jaar der Bataafsche vryheid.?? Kopergravure uit 1796 door Reinier Vinkeles en Daniel Vrydag naar een tekening van Jacques Kuyper, uitgegeven door kunsthandelaar Cornelis Sebille Roos te Amsterdam. Later met de hand gekleurd. Afm.: ca. 42 x 51 cm.Net als in andere delen van Europa groeide eind 18de eeuw in de Republiek der Zeven Verenigde Nederlanden weerstand tegen de adel, de wens naar een eerlijker bestuur en een meer egalitaire maatschappij, zodat een einde zou kunnen worden gemaakt aan het verdelen van baantjes binnen de regentenklasse. De Orangisten, die stadhouder Willem V zijn absolutistische macht wilden laten behouden, stonden tegenover de patriotten die, onder invloed van de Franse idee?n van de Verlichting en de Amerikaanse Revolutie, meer democratisch invloed op het benoemingsbeleid wilden uitoefenen en meer kansen wilden scheppen voor uitgesloten delen van de bevolking.De Franse tijd begon in het grootste gedeelte van Nederland met de Bataafse Revolutie in 1795, waarbij Nederlandse patriotten, met steun van een Frans leger dat het land was binnengetrokken, de Bataafse Republiek uitriepen. Stadhouder Willem V vertrok naar Engeland in ballingschap.Na het eerdere ?feest der vrijheid? op de Dam, zien hier het "feest der alliantie". Een grote menigte danst om de vrijheidsboom. Bij het onderschrift zien we de drie allegorische emblemen van Vrijheid, Gelijkheid en Broederschap die ook aan de boom hangen.De Franse tijd eindigde toen Napoleon in 1813 werd verslagen en afstand deed van de troon. In dat jaar keerde de oudste zoon van Willem V uit ballingschap terug naar Nederland en aanvaardde koning Willem I als soeverein vorst de regering over Nederland.Prijs: ?1.350,-.
