        Travels in the Interior Districts of Africa:

      Performed Under The Direction And Patronage Of The African Association, In The Years 1795, 1796, And 1797. With An Appendix, Containing Geographical Illustrations Of Africa. By Major Rennell. London: Printed By W. Bulmer And Co. For The Author 1799. With portrait, 3 folded maps, 6 plates of which 3 are folded and 2 leaves with music. XXVIII + 372 + XCII pp. Clean and well-preserved copy with wide margin and yellow edges bound in nice contemporary full leather gilt on spine and boards. Binding weakly marked of use, front hinge weak. * Mungo Park [1771 - 1806] was a Scottish explorer of West Africa. He was the first Westerner known to have travelled to the central portion of the Niger River. Through a recommendation by Banks, he obtained the post of assistant surgeon on board the East India Company's ship Worcester, and 1794 Mungo Park offered his services to the African Association. This book Travels in the Interior Districts of Africa became a best-seller because it detailed what he observed, what he survived, and the people he encountered. His dispassionate — if not scientific or objective — descriptions set a standard for future travel writers to follow and gave Europeans a glimpse of Africa's humanity and complexity. Park introduced them to a vast continent unexplored by Europeans, and proposed by example that Europeans could exploit it. After his death, European public and political interest in Africa began to increase. Perhaps the most lasting effect of Park's travels, though, was their influence on European imperialism and colonialism. [Wikipedia].P.M.M 253.

        Carey's American Atlas

      Philadelphia: Mathew Carey, 1795 FIRST EDITION of the first true American atlas, the earliest atlas of the United States engraved and published in America. This important volume contains several important state maps including the first American map representing Virginia after statehood. In the preparation of this atlas, Carey drew primarily on existing sources including Guthrie's Geography. Many of the maps were drawn by Samuel Lewis. Several of the maps of the Southern states are particularly noteworthy. The map of Georgia contains the location of several Creek and other Indian towns as well as old trading paths to the interior of the state. The map of Tennessee, here in its second state, is the first separate American map of Tennessee and contains valuable information about early settlements, towns, roads, and Indian boundaries. Unrestored examples in period bindings are very scarce. Thomas Streeter's great Americana collection contained only the 1800 edition. The Siebert collection had two badly defective copies, the second of which was apparently the 1800 reprint. Provenance: original owner's inscription "Christian Rapp bought in New York 18 September 1797 for 6 Spanish dollars." Folio. 21 engraved maps including the chart of the West Indies. Contemporary or original marbled boards and calf spine. A few minor tears mainly at folds, slight loss to page of Pennsylvania not affecting plate, some foxing, offsetting and staining, binding slightly loose. A very good copy. Evans 28390. Philips 1362. Sabin 10855. Schwartz and Ehrenberg 215.

        Karte vom Fünften Erdtheil

      Artist: Homann Erben (d) ; issued in: Nuremberg; date: (d)1795 - - technic: Copper print; - colorit: original colored; - condition: Some restorations; - size (in cm): 45,5 x 57,5; - description: Map of the Pacific Ocean with Australia, New Zealand, and Poynesia; - vita of the artist: Johann Babtiste Homann (1664-1724) was born in Oberkammlach, the Electorate of Bavaria. Although educated at a Jesuit school, and preparing for an ecclesiastical career, he eventually converted to Protestantism and from 1687 worked as a civil law notary in Nuremberg. He soon turned to engraving and cartography; in 1702 he founded his own publishing house.Homann acquired renown as a leading German cartographer, and in 1715 was appointed Imperial Geographer by Emperor Charles VI. Giving such privileges to individuals was an added right that the Holy Roman Emperor enjoyed. In the same year he was also named a member of the Prussian Academy of Sciences in Berlin. Of particular significance to cartography were the imperial printing privileges (Latin: privilegia impressoria). These protected for a time the authors in all scientific fields such as printers, copper engravers, map makers and publishers. They were also very important as a recommendation for potential customers.In 1716 Homann published his masterpiece Grosser Atlas ueber die ganze Welt (Grand Atlas of all the World). Numerous maps were drawn up in cooperation with the engraver Christoph Weigel the Elder, who also published Siebmachers Wappenbuch.Homann died in Nuremberg. He was succeeded by the Homann heirs company, which was in business until 1848. The company was known as Homann Erben, Homanniani Heredes, or Heritiers de Homann abroad.

        Karte von Scotland nach Dorret

      Artist: Reilly Franz Johann Joseph (d) ; issued in: Vienna; date: (d)1795 - - technic: Copper print; - colorit: original colored; - condition: Very good; - size (in cm): 46 x 62; - description: Map shows total Scottland and partly Ireland, on inset map the Shetland islands. Scotland is a country that is part of the United Kingdom and covers the northern third of the island of Great Britain. In 1698, the Company of Scotland attempted a project to secure a trading colony on the Isthmus of Panama. Almost every Scottish landowner who had money to spare is said to have invested in the Darien scheme. Its failure bankrupted these landowners, but not the burghs. Nevertheless, the nobles' bankruptcy, along with the threat of an English invasion, played a leading role in convincing the Scots elite to back a union with England.; - vita of the artist: Franz Johann Joseph von Reilly (1766 - 1820) Vienna. He was an Austrian and produced over 830 maps for his great atlas project, -Schauplatz der funf Theile der Welt- between the years 1789 and 1806. Of these 830 maps published over this time span of seventeen years, he 'showcased' but one part of the world, Europe. Maps of the other four continents remained unpublished. The maps of the Schauplatz .were drawn to a uniform criteria.Reilly's Grosser deutscher Atlas was also notable as the first completely 'Austrian' atlas. This large world atlas, containing relatively few maps, was issued between 1794 and the end of 1796. Reilly may have used Franz Anton Schraembl's work as his model, at least in part.

        A SHORT HISTORY OF THE NATURE AND CONSEQUENCES OF EXCISE LAWS; INCLUDING SOME ACCOUNT OF THE RECENT INTERRUPTION TO THE MANUFACTORIES OF SNUFF AND REFINED SUGAR

      Philadelphia: Printed for the Booksellers, 1795. 116pp. Modern half morocco and cloth boards, spine gilt lettered. Remnant of contemporary marbled wrapper affixed to gutter of titlepage. Toning and foxing. Good. An early Callender pamphlet on taxation. The author is famous for his scandal mongering, two of his favorite targets being Hamilton and Jefferson. Callender's unscrupulous behavior was halted one day when, in a drunken stupor, he drowned in three feet of water in the James River. In this volume he opposes recently passed Congressional taxes on sugar and snuff as "ruinous to manufacture, and of consequence, unproductive to the revenue." He reviews the history of British and American excise laws, and sees only harm to American manufacturers, large and small: "The nation that, for eight years, bled in every vein to buy its freedom, will gaze on with criminal apathy while the brewer, the tanner, the tallow chandler, the soapboiler, the paper maker, the nailer, the hatter, and the newsprinter ascend in succession the scaffold of excise....A standing army will soon become requisite for supporting a system universally detested." A powerful anti-tax statement, rather scarce in the market. SABIN 10071. EVANS 28383. ESTC W29417. KRESS B2899.

        Considerations on Lord Grenville?s and Mr. Pitt?s Bills, concerning treasonable and seditious practices, and unlawful assemblies. By a lover of order.

      Printed for J. Johnson. [1795] - Half title. Disbound. (4), 86pp. ESTC T31251. An important radical pamphlet, written in defiance of the infamous Grenville and Pitt Bills of 1795. Godwin was steadfast in his opposition to the Acts, both of which were designed, in the name of national security, to suppress political agitation and limit the potential for civil disobedience. Godwin was concerned that the legislation would stand in the way of reform, and constituted a mendacious attempt to stymie the liberal agenda. He envisaged widespread abuse of the new laws, surmising ?the spirit of this bill is evidently to put an engine into the hands of ministers, calculated for their use in every imaginable emergency. There is no case to which this bill may not be stretched, present or future, definite or indefinite, real or fictitious, that it may not be made to include? He concludes: ?These bills are an unwilling homage, that the too eager advocates of authority pay to the rising genius of freedom? This remains a scarce item, only one copy of which has appeared in ABPC in the last thirty years. From the library of Michael Foot.

        Geschichte des Prinzen Yhakanpol, lustig und zugleich erbaulich geschrieben. Stultorum plena sunt omnia. (Die Welt ist ein Irrenhaus). [2. Aufl.]

      Görlitz, bei Hermsdorf und Anton, 1795. - 1 Bl., IV (Vorbericht u. Kritik am Buchgeschäft), 8 S. (VlgsAnz.), S. [3]-460, 2 Bll. (Inhalt) (so kmpl., dabei zahlr. Paginierungsfehler: springt von S.160 auf 146, dann von 173 zu 164 u. von 416 auf 427; 436 als 336), 8°, Späterer marmorierter Pappband Wolfstieg 41523: "Selten. Auch die Freimauerei wird erwähnt." - Politische u. gesellschaftliche Utopie, enthält u.a. auch scharfe Kirchenkritik. Die EA erschien 1790 unter dem Pseudonym "Mag. Wromschewsky"; nach der Biografie zu urteilen, kurz vor seiner Haft geschrieben. Eine zeitnahe Besprechung erschien in "Allgemeine deutsche Bibliothek. 1765-96" (1792, 110.Bd.,1.St., S.119-141). - Carl Friedrich Bahrdt (1740-1792), radikaler evang. Aufklärungstheologe u. Schriftsteller. 1766 ordentlicher Professor der biblischen Philologie in Leipzig. 1768 musste er wegen Affären mit Prostituierten sein Amt niederlegen. Auf Betreiben von Christian Adolph Klotz erhielt er 1769 eine Professur für biblische Altertümer in Erfurt. Ungeachtet seiner Liebschaften heiratete er in Erfurt Johanna Elisabetha Volland, die Witwe des Fürstlich Sächsischen Weimar- u. Eisenacher Regierungssekretärs Christian Wilhelm Kühn. Allerdings erregte er durch seine Lehren bald wieder großen Anstoß, so dass er 1771, vermittelt durch Johann Salomo Semler, einem Ruf als Prediger u. Professor nach Gießen folgte. 1775 verlor er zum dritten Mal sein Amt, wieder auf Grund seines anstößigen Lebenswandels. 1777 trat er der Freimaurerei in England bei. Zunächst landesflüchtig, erhielt er 1779 durch Vermittlung des preußischen Ministers Karl Abraham von Zedlitz die Erlaubnis, in Halle zu leben, wo er als Schriftsteller tätig war u. allen Bestrebungen des Senats u. der orthodoxen Theologen zum Trotz in der philosophischen Fakultät Vorlesungen als Privatdozent hielt, an denen bis zu 900 Hörer teilnahmen. Nachdem er seine Frau verstoßen hatte, lebte er mit seiner Dienstmagd zusammen u. betrieb mit ihr in einem bei Halle gekauften Weinberg eine Gastwirtschaft, von der behauptet wurde es sei ein Freudenhaus. 1783 gründete er, mit Wissen Adam Weishaupts, die quasi-illuminatische Geheimgesellschaft "Deutsche Union der XXII", die 1788 durch eine Kampfschrift von Johann Joachim Christoph Bode aufgedeckt wurde. 1789 geriet Bahrdt als Verfasser des Lustspiels "Das Religionsedikt" erneut in Bedrängnis. Die Satire hatte sich gegen die restaurative Wende in der preußischen Kirchen- u. Kulturpolitik gewandt u. den preußischen König verspottet. Nach fast 8monatiger Untersuchungshaft wurde der äußerst umstrittene Theologe zu einjährigem Festungsarrest in Magdeburg verurteilt. Dort schrieb er seine Autobiographie "Geschichte seines Lebens". Er verstarb 1792 auf seinem Weinberg in Nietleben. - Barhdt schrieb über sich selbst: "Ich bin ein interessanter Mensch, bin berühmt in ganz Deutschland, habe Aufsehen erregt von der Düna bis zum Ursprung des Rheins und von der Weichsel bis an die Maas." (Kommentar, in: Pott, Briefe, Bd.I, Vorrede, S.V/VI. Siehe auch: Th. Hoeren: Präjakobiner in Deutschland Carl Friedrich Bahrdt) - Gering berieben; papierbedingt gebräunt (tls. auch stärker) u. fast durchgehend etwas braunfleckig; unbeschnitten u. tlw. angerändert; gutes Expl. - Sehr selten.

        Aktenmäßige Darstellung der Deutschen Union, und ihrer Verbindung mit dem Illuminaten-Freimaurer- und Rosenkreutzer-Orden. Ein nöthiger Anhang zu den höchst wichtigen Erinnerungen zur rechten Zeit. Erstausg.

      301 S., mit einer mehrfach gefalt. Taf. ("National-Directions-Tabelle von Teutschland"), Kl.-8, Halbleder d. Zt. mit gold- u. blindgepr. Rücken mit dreiseitigen Farbschnitt VD18 14604256 Wolfstieg 43135 Kloss 3290 Ackermann V/160: "Hoffmann war berüchtigter Haus-, Hof- u. Staatsspion Leopold II." - Erschien als "Anhang" zu dem Werk "Höchst wichtige Erinnerungen zur rechten Zeit über einige der allerernsthaftesten Angelegenheiten dieses Zeitalters" (Wien 1795). - Hoffmann gibt zahlreiche Texte von Original-Dokumenten (Briefe u.a.) wieder, die er in umfangreichen Anmerkungen scharf kommentiert (darunter auch Mitglieder-Listen der Deutschen Union). Er schreibt u.a., dass die "Deutsche Union" oder "Gesellschaft der 22 verbündeten Männer" (der Gründer war Carl Friedrich Bahrdt, 1741-1772) aus den Illuminaten (Weishaupt, Knigge etc.) entstanden sei, nachdem diese verboten wurden u. sich offiziell (scheinbar) aufgelöst hatten. Mit den "Rosenkreutzern" sind die "Gold- u. Rosenkreuzer" des 18. Jh. gemeint. In beide Orden konnte man nur eintreten, sofern man schon Freimaurer war. Hoffman, ursprünglich selbst Freimaurer u. Exjesuit, geht detailliert auf die versch. Verstrickungen der Geheimgesellschaften ein. - Leopold Alois Hoffmann (1760-1806), österr. Publizist u. Dramatiker. Nach Ausbruch der Franz. Revolution trat er aus der Loge aus u. begann einen leidenschaftlichen Kampf insbes. gegen Freimaurer u. Illuminaten. Er trat als Denunziant hauptsächlich in seiner "Wiener Zeitschrift" (1792-1793) auf u. veröffentlichte mehrere, meist anonyme Bücher. Immer vom dem Bestreben geleitet, Leopold II. zu einem energischen Vorgehen gegen die Logen zu bewegen. Der Kaiser aber soll einmal gesagt haben: "Der Kerl ist ein Esel, ich weiß es aber er leistet mir als Spion sehr gute Dienste." (Constantin von Wurzbachs "Biographischem Lexikon des Kaiserthums Oesterreich",1863). Das Ende von Hoffmanns Aktivitäten war denn auch der Tod Leopolds II. im März 1792. Er zog sich darauf verbittert nach Wiener Neustadt zurück u. starb 1806 im Alter von 46 Jahren, verachtet u. schließlich vergessen. Erst als Teil der Geschichte der habsburgischen Reaktion u. Repression geriet Hoffmann im 20. Jh. wieder ins Blickfeld der Historiker. - Carl Friedrich Bahrdt (1740-1792), der Gründer der "Deutschen Union der XXII", erwähnt den vorliegenden Titel in seinem Buch "Geschichte und Tagebuch meines Gefängnisses [...]" mehrmals (S. 55-89 u. 175-186). - Einband berieben u. leicht bestossen tlw. etwas braunfleckig, sonst ein gutes Expl. - Sehr selten, nach KVK/WorldCat ist der Titel nur als digitalisierte Vorlage nachweisbar.

        Entrance tokens for Gilbert Pidcock's menagerie, ca. 1795.

      circa 1795. Two bronze tokens, diameter 21cms. Pidcock's menagerie was at Exeter Exchange on the Strand in London. He exhibited exotic animals since 1793, including a kangaroo, elephant, rhinoceros and cockatoos. The tokens here on offer are one showing an elephant and on verso a cockatoo; the other showing an elephant and a two-headed cow. Gilbert Pidcock had worked in travelling shows since he was a young man, and in 1795 took sole ownership of the London-based menagerie which bore his name, situated in the Strand in a building called the Exeter Change. One of the grand sights of the metropolis, people flocked to see the exotic animals and birds on show, and he started at an ideal time for acquiring specimens from Australian and South-East Asia. One of Pidcock's regular visitors was the wood engraver and artist Thomas Bewick, who used the animals as models for the engravings he included in works like his famous General History of Quadrupeds.The rare bronze token advertising their acquisition of a crested cockatoo, given the rather limited detail of the present specimen, and the lack of explicit records of the birds kept by Pidcock, it is not possible to be precise about exactly what kind of cockatoo is depicted: having said that, it must be one of the birds endemic to Australia or Indonesia: the sulphur-, orange-, yellow- or otherwise crested cockatoos. In John White's Journal of a Voyage to New South Wales, to cite one obvious comparison, there is a "Crested Cockatoo" that was drawn by Sarah Stone.The two-headed heifer was a live exhibit and an advertisement referring to it appeared in the 29th January 1791 edition of the London Chronicle: "Now exhibiting at the Lyceum Strand. The surprising Heifer with two heads. This very remarkable creature has two Heads, Four Horns, Four Ears, Four Nostrils, through each of which it breathes, &c. This truly wonderful Curiosity is the only one of the kind in Europe; and what is more astonishing, it takes its Sustenance with both mouths at the same time, to the admiration of the Faculty, and the Beholders in general; and it also the received opinion of John Hunter, Esq., Professor of Anatomy, that it has two hearts. One of the Heads, together with the Horns, represents that of a bull, and the other a Cow. The height of the animal is thirteen hands, and each Horn measures twenty-five inches long. Admittance One Shilling. N.B.- Most money given for all sorts of foreign Beasts and Birds, if alive, by G. Pidcock." In very good condition.
