        SUBSTANCE OF THE REPORT DELIVERED BY THE COURT OF DIRECTORS OF THE SIERRA LEONE COMPANY, TO THE GENERAL COURT OF PROPRIETORS, ON THURSDAY, MARCH 27th, 1794. [bound with:] SUBSTANCE OF THE REPORT OF THE COURT OF DIRECTORS OF THE SIERRA LEONE COMPANY, DELIVERED.THURSDAY THE 26th OF FEBRUARY, 1795.

      Philadelphia: Thomas Dobson, 1795. - 168pp. plus folding map; 24pp. Original paper wrappers. Front wrapper chipped, light wear, tanning and soiling. Contemporary ownership markings on front flyleaf. Map loosely inserted, repaired at some folds. Still, about very good in unsophisticated condition. In a half morocco box. Two scarce early reports of the Sierra Leone Company, the first containing the very rare map of the colony and its surrounds, "Plan of Sierra Leone and the Parts Adjacent." The second report is often found bound with the first, and may have been issued thus. The colony of Sierra Leone was established in 1791 as a result of the efforts of Henry Smeathman, Alexander Falconbridge and others, who were interested in alleviating the plight of victims of the slave trade. In 1792, a large number of former American slaves who had been in Nova Scotia were moved there by the British. The Sierra Leone Company was incorporated in 1795, and numerous former slaves from the United States and the Caribbean were deposited there over the next decade. The map shows the settlement of the natives, land purchased by the company, and other settlements being developed in the area. It was engraved by Philadelphia engraver J. Vallance. EVANS 29513, 29514. ESTC W29500, W31451.

        Elise oder Die Reise auf den S. Bernardsberg. Ein Singspiel in drey Akten... Im Klavierauszuge von G.B. Bierey... Preis 3 Rthlr. [Piano-vocal score]

      Leipzig: Breitkopf und Härtel, 1795. First Edition. Bellasis, p. 321. RISM A/I/11 CC2028 I, 202. BUC p. 186. OCLC no. 234176301. Elisa (Elise), to a libretto by Jacques-Antoine Reveroni de Saint-Cyr, was first performed at the Théâtre Feydeau in Paris on December 13, 1794. "This work typifies the ‘rescue opera'; genre which, though dating from the mid-18th century, became popular early in the French Revolution... the piece held the stage in France for some time and was frequently performed in Germany, where it was reviewed enthusiastically (AMZ, 5 Jan 1803)... Though labelled ‘opéra'; by Cherubini, this work conforms to the opéra comique form by virtue of its spoken dialogue; in fact, it demonstrates Cherubini';s development of the genre. The musical numbers are no longer pauses in the plot, allowing a character to sing quickly a couple of stanzas expressing his sentiments; they scintillate with action and display a continuity which sometimes makes the spoken dialogue seem like an intrusion. Elisa is considered by some to be the most consciously romantic of Cherubini';s operas." Stephen C. Willis in Grove Music Online.. Oblong folio.

The first American edition of Junius was published in Philadelphia by Pritchard and Hall in 1791. This is the second American edition. Evans 28912. "The secret of the authorship of these letters which puzzled the men of the last century still remains unsolved, and it may be added that with our present information it is practically insoluble" (Halkett & Laing III. 327), although current scholarship seems to suggest that they are the work of Sir Philip Francis (1740-1818). "The first of the letters of Junius appeared in Woodfall's Public Advertiser in London, Jan. 21, 1769. Further letters appeared irregularly until 21 Jan. 1772. The series attracted enough attention to make it profitable for various booksellers to bring out editions of the letters before the series was concluded. At least 16 of these unauthorized partial editions were published before the end of 1771. In addition, individual letters were published in other political collections" (NCBEL, II, 1178).

        Scherzi poetici e pittorici. Roma 1794 (Parma, co' tipi bodoniani, 1795)

      1795. in - 4 real folio, in totale ff. 93: 4 fogli preliminari (titolo, 2 di dedicatoria, occhietto), 47 di testo, indice, 41 tavole compreso titolo. Legatura d'amatore in marocchino granata a grana lunga, cornice di palmette impresse a secco piatti, motivi fogliacei angolari in oro, dorso a nervi con ricchi fregi a secco e in oro. Dedica a stampa ad Alessandro de Souza e Holstein, firmata dal De Rossi, autore dei versi redatti in vario metro e con tema allegorico amoroso. Ogni scherzo poetico, stampato in tondo, è numerato in romano entro una tavoletta, e a fronte reca un illustrazione. Esemplare sconosciuto alle bibliografie in quanto in formato in - 4 grande e con rami all'etrusca (in giallo e nero) incisi da Texeira Barreto e non da Rosaspina. Questa edizione, una delle più eleganti e raffinate produzioni di Bodoni, è illustrata da antiporta con data Roma 1794 e 40 belle tavole incise da Texeira numerate nel margine superiore. Bodoni stampò diverse versioni di questo libro, variando la composizione, il formato, e la coloritura dei rami. Si conoscono esemplari con le tavole in nero, in nero e giallo all'etrusca del Rosaspina, oppure, in pochissimi casi, contornate dalle bordure neoclassiche incise da Giacomo Mercoli. ''Si trovano degli esemplari coi 41 rami neri; altri coi medesimi coloriti all'etrusca; altri coi rami stampati in rosso pallido entro un arabesco nero. E finalmente furono tirati per dodici copie, tanto il rame, quanto l'arabesco, con inchiostro chiarissimo, per chi avesse talento di farli acquerellare in colore. Presso di lui ne esistono delle prove; ma non fu contento del lavoro'' (DE LAMA). Gherardo De Rossi (Roma, 1754 ? 1827), direttore dell'Accademia reale di Napoli. Figlio di un banchiere, fu ministro delle finanze della repubblica romana dal 1798 al 1800. Autore di 16 commedie e di saggi critici sul teatro, fece parte dell'Arcadia, con il nome di Perinto Sceo e fu presidente dell'Accademia di belle arti del Portogallo. Per questa ragione scelse ad illustrare gli Scherzi l'artista portoghese José Teixeira Barreto (o Tekeira, 1763 - 1810, cfr. Pedro VITORINO, J.Teixeira B., Artista Portuense, Coimbra, 1925). Alessandro de Souza e Holstein, Conte di Sanfrè e di Motta Isnardi, (Lisbona 1751 - Roma 1803) fu ambasciatore di Portogallo a Roma, ed ebbe incarichi presso il governo sabaudo. Buon esemplare, al contro piatto anteriore ex libris Waletr John Heathcote, Kilmenston Manor.

      An III =, Paris: Lamarche 1795 - Paris: Lamarche, An III = 1795. Kl.-Folio, 9 S. (gestoch. Text) u. 53 doppelblattgr. Karten. Mod. HLdr. (Exemplar mit Gebrauchsspuren, doch in passabler Erhaltung, einige wenige zeitgenöss. Randbemerkungen, im breiten Rand gelegentlich wasserrandig). * Phillips 3528; Lex. Gesch. d. Kartographie II,676f.; vgl. Tooley S. 541 (1. Ausg. 1748); Sponberg-Pedley: Bel et Utile p. 231 (not mentioning this edition!). Mit hübschem gestoch. Titel m. breiter allegor. Bordüre sowie von Putten gehaltener Weltkarte (Barrier sc.). Lamarche hatte die Karten für diesen Jugendatlas von Robert de Vaugondy übernommen, korrigiert u. seine Verlagsadresse hinzugefügt. Die Kartenstecher: Dien, Dussy, Arrivet, Blondeau. Die Karten meist breitrandig, häufig datiert 1795 oder An III, zeigen mehrere Weltkarten (differenziert nach Religionen, Hautfarbe, Figur der Menschen, z.B. visages plats, yeux ovales, visages d'ours), Kirchengeschichte (2), weiterhin Kontinente, europäische u. außereurop. Länder, jeweils mit hübscher Rokoko-Kartusche. Der Atlas vermittelt das Bild der im späten 18. Jh. bekannten Welt, meist mit leichtem Grenzkolorit der Karten. Didier Robert de Vaugondy (1723-1786) veröffentlichte seine ersten Karten bereits mit 19 Jahren. Gemeinsam mit seinem Vater schuf er den "Atlas portatif". Trotz beträchtlicher Auflagenhöhen und staatlicher Zuschüsse hatte R. de V. mit erheblichen Finanzproblemen zu kämpfen: 1778 verkaufte er seinen Fundus an J. Fortin, einen Globen-. und Instrumentenbauer, dessen Geschäft dann 1784 an C. F. de La Marche (Delamarche) überging. Von diesem wurden die Karten der Familie R. de V. bis weit ins 19. Jahrhundert verkauft. Uncommon edition of this attractive atlas containing i.a. one world map in double hemisphere and 3 thematic world maps, 5 maps relating to the Americas, 7 to France, 6 to Germany, 5 to Asia, 4 to the Holy Land, 3 to Africa. Address in the engraved atlas title changed into "Revu, corrigé et augmenté avec la division de la France en départemens par le Cit(oyen) Lamarche Géographe successeur du Cit(oyen) Fortin ingénieur mécanicien pour les globes et sphères. L'An III de la République Francaise, 1795." Mod. HLdr. (Exemplar mit Gebrauchsspuren, doch in passabler Erhaltung, einige wenige zeitgenöss.

Vers 1774, il alla se fixer à Paris, où il exécuta son œuvre principale, le plan de cette ville et de ses faubourgs... travail immense, qui l'occupa pendant vingt - huit ans, le plus souvent la nuit à cause des embarras des rues durant le jour, et pour lequel il a employé jusqu'à soixante ingénieurs et plus de quatre - vingts aides à cheval » (Hoefer).

        DELLE ANTICHITA' PICENE dell'Abate... Patrizio Camerinese. Fermo, Paccaroni, 1786 - 1797. Unito: RACCOLTA DI RAMI che appartengono ai primi XV volumi delle Antichità Picene dell'Ab... Parte I (e II). Fermo, dalla Calcografia dell'Autore, 1793 - 1796. Unito: PERANZONI Nicolò. DE LAUDIBUS PICENI sive Marchiae Anconitanae Libellus. Nunc primum in lucem edidit notasque et praefationem adjecit Josephus Colutius.

      ex Typographio Palladis, 1795. 33 volumi in folio (mm. 320x215), splendida leg. uniforme m. perg. ottocentesca con doppio tass. marocchino rosso e tit. oro ai d., piatti in cart. dec. In antip. al primo vol. bel ritratto in rame di Papa Pio VI cui è dedicata l'opera, incisa da Raimondo Faucci, e all'ultimo vol. gr. veduta ripiegata (mm. 310x503) raffigurante Monterubbiano preso dalla villa di Montotto, inc. in rame da Luigi Povelato. Fregi, finalini, testatine xilogr. e in rame di corredo al testo e incisioni con stemmi araldici e alberi genelogici ripiegati. La monumentale opera così si compone: i primi 30 volumi contengono l'opera completa del Colucci sulle Antichità Picene, il vol. 31 ha un formato maggiore (mm. 370x265) e raccoglie in due parti le 68 tavole inc. in rame, anche ripiegate, di illustrazione al testo, il vol. 32, rarissimo, contiene la prima edizione dell'opera di Nicolò Peranzone curata dal Colucci. Le tavole comprendono 2 carte geografiche del Piceno, 1 veduta del porto di Ancona, e piante e monumenti di Ancona, Ascoli, Cupra Marittima, Falerio, Fano, Gubbio, Pesaro, Potenza, Tolentino, Treja, Urbisaglia. Il volume aggiunto, estraneo all'opera, ma qui unito per uniformità della legatura, contiene la prima edizione dell'opera dell'umanista Niccolò Peranzoni "De Laudibus Piceni" curata dal Colucci stesso. Poco si conosce del marchigiano N. Peranzone originario di Montecassiano di Macerata, noto soprattutto come correttore e revisore di opere petrarchesche. Questo scrittore compilava il suo De Laudibus Piceni tra il 1510 e il 1527 ma il suo autografo era già scomparso al tempo di Colucci, il quale pubblicò per primo quel lavoro sulla base di copie manoscritte o forse autografe, come dichiara nella prefazione. Giusppe Colucci (Penna San Giovanni 1752 - Fermo 1809) di nobili origini, dopo aver preso i voti, si dedicò con passione alle ricerche storiche e antiquarie incoraggiato dai coetanei Annibale degli Abati Olivieri e Girolamo Tiraboschi. Grazie a finanziamenti pubblici e privati dei numerosi sottoscrittori riuscì negli anni a raccogliere molto materiale documentario storico e allestì in proprio la tipografia - libreria di Pallade fondata da lui stesso a Fermo (solo al primo volume compare il nome dell'editore Paccaroni, poi è sempre riportato "In Fermo, dai torchi dell'Autore"). Le antichità picene coprono l'arco cronologico dall'età romana all'Alto Medioevo con un intento scientifico molto complesso e con la volontà di spaziare dall'archeologia alla geografia, dagli aspetti storico - militari a quelli economici e proprio la complessità dell'opera, e forse le critiche competitive di altri studiosi, lo convinsero a desistere e interrompere la pubblicazione dell'opera sebbene avesse a disposizione molto materiale ancora inedito (ci rimangono 20 volumi inediti conservati presso la Biblioteca comunale Mozzi - Borgetti di Macerata). L'opera è maggiormente importante laddove contiene croniche di piccole località, per la prima e talvolta unica volta pubblicate dal Colucci. Lozzi II, p.51, nota. Platneriana p.194. Pur nei limiti, l'opera costituisce una fonte preziosa e imprescindibile per gli studi di storia locale e, così completa di tavole e supplemento, è di assoluta rarità e, salvo qualche pagina arrossata molto lievemente, in stato di conservazione eccezionale.

L'oeuvre reprend les thèmes classiques de la littérature libertine : dénonciation des hypocrites et faux dévots, sexualité sans entrave morale, critique des moeurs. Les scènes sexuelles sont décrites simplement et sans ambigüité, mais elles ne sont jamais crues ou choquantes. On ne saurait passer sous silence non plus la dimension parodique qui anime l'oeuvre et son ton de légèreté. Apollinaire en réalisera une célèbre édition en 1921.

      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 ideeën 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,-.

        1795 OFFICIAL HANDWRITTEN DOCUMENT SIGNED by KING OF SPAIN to the GOVERNOR of CUBA

      1795 - OFFICIAL MANUSCRIPT DOCUMENT on laid paper, in Spanish. SIGNED BY THE KING OF SPAIN with "YO EL REY". Appears to be the SIGNATURE of KING CHARLES IV / KING CARLOS IV. It is an actual hand signature, not the woodblock YO EL REY signature that is so often seen on his "signed" documents. I have confidence that this hand signature is that of the KING, though it could have been hand signed in his name by one of his officials, I have no way of knowing with absolute certainty. Written on both sides of an 8.25x11.75" sheet of laid, watermarked paper. The document is headed with a manuscript EL REY at the top of the front page, and is SIGNED on the back page, at the end of the written text, with YO EL REY. Undated (insofar as I can decipher), circa 1790s (1795?) The document begins with: "Intendente de Exército, y Real Hacienda de la Isla de Cuba" (i.e. addressed to the Governing Official of Cuba). I have not completely translated this document because the handwriting combined with the oxidation of the iron gall ink (causing offsetting from one side of the page to the other) makes it difficult. I do note that it discusses travel from Cadiz to New Spain, and from Veracruz to Guiana and Caracas. The paper has an interesting WATERMARK with the letters A and T inside circles, one on top of the other, with a cross at the very top. Also interesting is that at the bottom margin of the back page, about 5" below the King's "Yo El Rey" signature, is another signature (that I cannot make out) just below which are three additional handwritten lines. This brief text also mentions Cuba and Havana. Why these few lines are present at the bottom of the back page I have no idea. The document is in generally GOOD condition with a horizontal fold across the middle, quite a number of small holes in the writing where the pen point penetrated the paper, and some typical signs of age and use including oxidation of the iron gall ink, some edge wear and age toning. Still a solid and well-kept historic document relating to Cuba, South America, New Spain, and the King of Spain. I have tried to provide some high quality photos for your examination. I welcome questions and informative comments. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

        Dissertation on First-Principles of Government

      Paris: Printed at the English Press,, 1795. [Together with:] The Age of Reason; being an investigation of true and of fabulous theology. Part the Second. London, printed, New-York, re-printed by Mott & Lyon, for Fellows & Adam and J. Reid, 1796. 2 works bound as one, octavo (161 x 98 mm). Contemporary tree sheep skilfully rebacked with the original gilt banded spine laid down, red and green morocco twin labels (lettered "Part II"), gilt roll tool border on sides. Engraved portrait frontispiece of Paine by Scoles. General light foxing, a couple of leaves in the Dissertation shaved at the fore-edge by the binder (but without loss of legibility) otherwise a very good copy. First edition of the Dissertation, first US edition of The Age of Reason (Part Two only). "Dissertation on the First Principles of Government (1795) is essentially an epitome of his case in Rights of Man and provides an extremely clear and uncluttered statement of his mature views on government. The case for universal manhood suffrage was not, however, obvious to a convention which had been driven by the fury of the Parisian mob over much of the preceding two years, and the new constitution survived Paine's prose to be inaugurated in October 1795. Paine was not elected to it and his official role in France now ended" (ODNB). Included here is Paine's speech to the Convention of 7 July 1995. The Age of Reason is "a trenchant and uncompromising attack on Christianity and all formal religions together with a brief statement of Paine's religious beliefs" (ibid). Of the Dissertation Copac locates copies with this imprint at only four British and Irish institutional libraries (BL, Oxford, Manchester, Scotland), otherwise well-represented in US libraries (some impressions have the Speech separately paginated, not the case here).

        Southwark Fair

      Invented Painted & Engrav'd by Wm. Hogarth 1733. [J & J Boydell c.1795] - Copper engraving and etching Image 342 x 454 mm, Plate 364 mm, Sheet 434 x 588 mm A very lively and complex engraving of Southwark Fair, which was held around Borough High St each year in September, until its abolition in 1762 by the Court of Common Council. The fair gathered a reputation for all manner of violence and vice, and these various circumstances of criminality and tumult are depicted expertly by Hogarth in this scene. In the heaving square between near St George's Church are numerous amusements, theatrical booths, and street performances. Banners slung from the surrounding buildings advertise such diverse theatrical performances as the Drury Lane 'Stage Mutiny,' the 'Seige of Troy,' 'Punches Opera,' the Fall of Man from Eden, and even a Royal Waxworks of the Court of France. To the left, a performance of the 'Fall of Bajazet' experiences an appropriately ironic fall of its own, as the stage collapses onto a booth selling ceramics. Between two of the buildings, a tightrope walker hangs suspended from a line, while a rope-flyer dives from the church tower in the distance. The crowd at centre is a motley collection of caricatures. A dwarf playing bagpipes stands alongside a trained dog, walking on its back legs and dressed in the habit of a gentleman. A black trumpeter and a drummer-girl lead a band through the crowd, while one of their number, in Roman dress, is accosted by the bailiffs. To the right, a wastrel chats up two country girls, one of whom closely resembles Moll from Hogarth's celebrated 'Harlot's Progress.' In the extreme right, the broadsword fighter James Figg sits atop his blind horse, brandishing his weapon, while two figures sit observing a peepshow in a small hutch. Hogarth's advertisements for the Southwark Fair suggest that it was originally intended as a coda for his 'Rake's Progress,' though owing to delays in finishing the series, the Southwark Fair was actually published before the Rake. William Hogarth (1697 - 1764) was born in London, the son of an unsuccessful schoolmaster and writer from Westmoreland. After apprenticeship to a goldsmith, he began to produce his own engraved designs in about 1710. He later took up oil painting, starting with small portrait groups called conversation pieces. He went on to create a series of paintings satirising contemporary customs, but based on earlier Italian prints, of which the first was The Harlot's Progress (1731), and perhaps the most famous The Rake's Progress. His engravings were so plagiarised that he lobbied for the Copyright Act of 1735, commonly referred to as 'Hogarth's Act,' as a protection for writers and artists. During the 1730s Hogarth also developed into an original painter of life-sized portraits, and created the first of several history paintings in the grand manner. Paulson 131 i/i, BM Satires 1960 Condition: Excellent impression with full margins. Light foxing and manuscript number to margin, not affecting image or plate.
