        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.

All three volumes of this complete set are in near fine conditions rebound in brown cloth covered boards with gilt text stamping on the spines and front boards.

The first and second volumes were published by Thomas and Andrews of Boston. Volume I contains 478 pages followed by a 10 page index. Volume II contains 447 pages followed by a 4 page index. Volume III was published by John Murray of London and is dated 1828 and bears the title: The History Of The Province Of Massachusetts Bay, From The Year 1750, until June, 1774.

Thomas Hutchinson (1711 ? 1780) was the British governor of Massachusetts from 1758 to 1774. He was also an avid historian with a consuming interest in the colonial history of Massachusetts.

Absent à Cioranescu et à Cohen qui ne cite que l'édition de 1782 avec 24 figures de Borel, dont 11 figures libres ont été supprimées. Cette édition n'est pas non plus recensée dans la bibliographie de Félicia faite dans l'édition récente de l'éditeur UP. L'édition originale est parue en 1775. Reliures en demi chagrin rouge circa 1920. Dos lisse avec titre et tomaison dorés. Double filet sur les plats. Plats frottés. Le papier de garde est plus ancien, circa 1860.

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.

        THE WAY TO WEALTH OR POOR RICHARD IMPROVED. LA SCIENCE DE BONHOMME RICHARD. LETTRES DE FRANKLIN. DIALOGUE ENTRE LA GOUTTE ET FRANKLIN. QUELQUES MOTS SUR L'AMERIQUE. AVIS A CEUX QUI VOUDROIENT ALLER S'ETABLIR DANS CETTE CONTREE

      Paris: [Printed at Dijon by P. Causse for] Ant. Aug. Renouard, 1795. ONE OF SIX LARGE PAPER COPIES n. First published in 1768 as the follow-up to "Poor Richard's Almanac," "The Way to Wealth" became one of the most widely printed and translated works by an American author, and the present luxury copy is the most desirable form of what Ford says is "the prettiest edition yet printed." Our volume contains both the original English text and then the French translation of "Wealth," as well as three other important sections: the French versions of Franklin's "Letters," "The Dialogue between Franklin and the Gout," and "Some Words on America. Advice for those who wish to establish themselves in that Country." The vast margins here identify this as one of the six Large Paper Copies of the Renouard edition recorded by Ford. Printer, polymath, and Founding Father Benjamin Franklin (1706-90) was one of the most fascinating men of the 18th century. The present work no doubt found an appreciative audience in France, where Franklin was especially revered. He had served as the minister plenipotentiary to France for the United States from 1777 to 1785, establishing himself as "the most essential and successful American diplomat of all time." (ANB) His (rather jealous) compatriot John Adams noted that in France, "his name was familiar to government and people, to kings, courtiers, nobility, clergy, and philosophers, as well as plebeians, to such a degree that there was scarcely a peasant or a citizen, a valet de chambre, coachman or footman, a lady's chambermaid or a scullion in a kitchen, who was not familiar with it, and who did not consider him as a friend to human kind." Described by Furstenberg as "the father of the modern luxury edition," Renouard (1765-1853) set the standard for the period of the Empire as publisher, bookseller, bibliographer, and collector. At the time this item was published, he was among the leading Paris booksellers who were bringing out handsome printings of the best writers. Although Furstenberg says that "the significance of Renouard for the development of the modern book is . . . many sided," it seems that during his lifetime, he was best known as the person "to whom his age owed a number of the most beautiful editions." Of special note here is the luxurious paper used, which is as fine as the best employed by Bodoni.. 185 x 111 mm. (7 1/4 x 4 3/8"). 2 p.l., 82, [2] (blank), [83]-181, [5] pp.; 31 pp. (publisher's catalogue). ONE OF SIX LARGE PAPER COPIES. Contemporary rose speckled boards, flat spine with remnants of paper label. With engraved frontispiece portrait. Front pastedown with bookseller's ticket of Theophile Barrois, Paris. Ford 135; Sabin 25596. Spine somewhat darkened, paper a bit chafed and lightly soiled, but the insubstantial binding generally and surprisingly well preserved. A little thumbing to opening leaves, isolated spots of foxing, otherwise A VERY FINE COPY, the leaves clean, fresh, and bright, with margins that occupy more of the page than the text.

        Oval color aquatint portrait of Franklin, engraved by Pierre-Michel Alix after a portrait by Charles Philippe Vanloo

      Paris: [Marie Françcois Drouhun, Editeur & Imprimeur-Libraire], n.d., but circa 1795 or before, 1795. Sellers, Benjamin Franklin in Portraiture, page 394; see also the website of the Phillips Museum of Art, Franklin & Marshall College, "Franklin Artifacts.". Some light stains in the margin; one blemish on the image; and a slight crease; very good example.. 25 x 22 cm image on a 29.5 x 24.5 cm sheet, with "Vanloo pintx. / P.M. Alix Sculpt" below the portrait and centered below that is the title "Francklin." In a handsome contemporary oval frame. An engraving after the portrait of Benjamin Franklin painted by Charles Philippe Amédée Vanloo sometime between 1777 and 1785 (Sellers). The engraved image differs from the original oil in some aspects of Franklin's dress, but it is undoubtedly based on the painting by Vanloo. The engraving was part of a series of images of prominent statesmen and scientists by Alix begun in 1790 and concluded in 1797. The Franklin was exhibited at the Salon of 1795. The original portrait by Vanloo now resides at the American Philosophical Society in Philadelphia. The imprint was trimmed from the bottom margin of the engraving when it was framed.

        Versuch über den menschlichen Verstand. Aus dem Englischen übersetzt mit einigen Anmerkungen und einer Abhandlung über den Empirismus in der Philosophie von Wilhelm Gottlieb Tennemann. 3 Bände.

      Jena, im Verlag des akademischen Leseinstituts (Bd. 1) bzw. Leipzig, Johann Ambrosius Barth (Bde. 2 u. 3), 1795-1797. 8°. XLVIII, 536 S.; 2 Bll., 531 S.; VI S., 1 Bl., 488 S., Mod. Ppbde. im Stil d. Zt. m. goldgepr. Rückenschildern. Erste Ausgabe der Übersetzung des Philosophen Wilhelm Gottlieb Tennemann (1761-1819). Tennemann studierte seit 1779 Philosophie in Erfurt und Jena, erwarb 1788 den Grad eines Magisters und erhielt um 1792 in Jena die Lehrerlaubnis für Philosophie. Seit 1798 a.o.Prof., folgte er 1804 einem Ruf als o.Prof. der Philosophie nach Marburg, wo er 1816 Universitätsbibliothekar wurde und Ehrenmitglied verschiedener gelehrter Gesellschaften war. Tennemann beschäftigte sich besonders mit der Geschichte der Philosophie. - „[...] Locke war der erste, der Bacons Herausforderung annahm und nun versuchte, kritisch die Sicherheit und Brauchbarkeit der menschlichen Erkenntnis Gott und dem Universum gegenüber zu ergründen. In der Vergangenheit wurden derartige Untersuchungen beeinträchtigt durch die Neigung des Menschen, sie über den Bereich des menschlichen Verstandes auszudehnen und Ursachen zu erfinden für Dinge, die man nicht erklären konnte. Deshalb war es Lockes erstes Bestreben, sich der ‚ursprünglichen Sicherheit und Reichweite der menschlichen Erkenntnis‘ zu vergewissern und ohne Rücksicht auf ‚physikalische Kenntnisse zu zeigen, wie weit überhaupt der Verstand das Universum erfassen kann‘. Lockes Schlußfolgerung war, daß menschliche Erkenntnis zwar das volle Begreifen der Welt notwendigerweise nicht erlangt, sie jedoch ausreicht, uns davon zu überzeugen, daß wir kein Spielball des puren Zufalls sind und daß wir bis zu einem gewissen Grade unser Schicksal selber bestimmen können [...]“ (Carter/Muir, Bücher die die Welt verändern, S. 308). - Wesentlich seltener als die einbändige erste dt.

        Memoirs of the First Forty-Five Years of the Life of James Lackington, the present Bookseller in Chiswell-street, Moorfields, London. Written by Himself. In Forty-Six Letters to a Friend. With a Triple Dedication. 1. To the Public. 2. To Respectable Booksellers. 3. To Sordid Booksellers. A New Edition, corrected, and much enlarged; interspersed with many original humourous Stories, and droll Anecdotes.

      Engraved frontis. port. of the author. 540 pp. 8vo, cont. red straight-grained morocco (slightly darkened), flat spine gilt, a.e.g. London: Printed for the Author, 1795. "A New Edition, Corrected and much enlarged; interspersed with many original humourous Stories, and droll Anecdotes, not in former Editions; to which is also added, an Index." Lackington (1746-1815), who started his business career at the age of ten as an itinerant meat pieman, became an apprentice shoemaker four years later. In 1773 he went to London and opened up a bookstall and shoemaker's shop in Featherstone Street, St. Luke's. His exceptional industry and frugality enabled him to become one of the leading booksellers of his time. In 1791 he calculated that he was selling about 100,000 volumes each year. His legendary shop at Finsbury Square in London was named "The Temple of the Muses." Lackington revolutionized the book trade by becoming the first bookseller to refuse to sell books on credit. His cash only approach allowed him to offer books less expensively. Lackington also refused to destroy or discard remaindered books and instead sold them at bargain prices. His memoirs are "the principal source of information about him; in addition to the particulars of his life, the work is full of curious anecdotes and many quotations from a wide range of authors."-ODNB. He retired in 1798 and engaged in a number of charitable activities. I believe this is the final edition to be revised by him. Fine copy, most attractively bound. Faint embossed stamp of a library on frontispiece and title with a small rubberstamp number on verso of title. Half-title lacking. .

        THIRD CONGRESS OF THE UNITED STATES, AT THE SECOND SESSION... AN ACT TO AMEND THE ACT, ENTITLED, "AN ACT TO ESTABLISH THE POST-OFFICE AND POST-ROADS WITHIN THE UNITED STATES [caption title]

      [Philadelphia: Francis Childs, 1795. Broadsheet, 13 1/2 x 8 1/4 inches. Old fold lines, with one small separation. Minor foxing. Very good. Untrimmed. An act passed by the Third Congress creating many new official post roads, and the alteration of several others. These new roads were to run through most of the country, but were concentrated in New England, Pennsylvania, Maryland, and Virginia, with several also connecting the Carolinas. Of note is the establishment of a frontier post road to run from Bardstown, Kentucky to Nashville in the Southwest Territory, incorporated into the Union in 1796 as Tennessee. "Approved, February the twenty fifth, 1795," and signed in print by Speaker of the House Augustus Muhlenberg, President of the Senate Pro Tempore Henry Tazewell, and President George Washington. Two states of this imprint are noted. One, Evans 29701, includes a statement of deposition: "Deposited among the rolls in the Office of the Secretary of State. Secretary of State," and is signed by Secretary of State Edmund Randolph. The other, Bristol B9377, is without this statement. This is the former, signed by Secretary of State Edmund Randolph. ESTC notes copies at only four American institutions, and Evans adds another at Library of Congress. Scarce in either format, and particularly rare with the signature of the Secretary of State. Edmund Randolph became the second Secretary of State on Jan. 2, 1794, succeeding Thomas Jefferson, who resigned at the end of 1793. He continued the practice begun in the First Congress of the Secretary of State signing a small number of "official" copies of Congressional acts for distribution to the States and important government officials. After the Third Congress, official acts were no longer signed in manuscript by the Secretary of State. EVANS 29701 ESTC W14572.

        Simplification des langues orientales, ou méthode nouvelle et facile d'apprendre les langues Arabes, Persanes et Turques, avec des caractères Européens

      Imprimerie de la République, Paris 1795 - ____ Première édition. Volney propose ici un alphabet unique pour les langues orientales et européennes. Dans sa préface, il prophétise que la secousse actuelle de l'Europe entrainera "la subversion totale du système colonial de l'Europe, et l'affranchissement de toute l'Amérique" Et aussi, qu'à dater du jour "où nos bons livres traduits pourront circuler chez les orientaux, il se formera dans l'Orient un ordre des choses tout nouveau, un changement marqué dans les moeurs, les lois, les gouvernements." PROVENANCE : Une lettre d'envoi a été relié en tête du volume à "Mr. Anson administrateur général des Postes". "Volney tente de réparer son oubli en adressant à monsieur Anson le livre qu'il lui a promis pour l'amateur de grammaires". Un renvoi donne le nom de cet amateur de grammaire : M. Grancher. Ce dernier a écrit une longue note sur un feuillet de garde : "Le système d'un alphabet unique conçu par Volney . a été combattu par Langlès et Silvestre de Sacy : mais Volney a eu pour lui le suffrage non équivoque de l'Académie de Calcutta, & ceux qui ont eu comme moi, l'occasion de connaître le premier, savent qu'il voyait de mauvais oeil les progrès des étudiants dans les langues orientales dont il exagérait à dessin les difficultés à ceux qui voulaient les apprendre. J'en suis un exemple." Suivent des notes sur les publications de Volney. Relié à la suite : - SABBAGH, Michel. La Colombe, messagère plus rapide que l'éclair, plus prompte que la nue. Paris, Imprimerie Impériale, 1805. In-8 de 95, (1) pp. Première édition. Texte en arabe, avec sa traduction, sur les pigeons voyageurs de Michel Sabbagh (1784-1816). D'origine palestinienne, il avait été interprète de l'armée napoléonienne en Egypte. Par la suite, il a été employé à l'Imprimerie Royale, à Paris . Puis en 1807, il occupa un poste de copiste des manuscrits arabes à la Bibliothèque impériale de Paris. La traduction en vis à vis est de Antoine-Isaac Silvestre de Sacy, avec des notes à la fin. "Imprimé par les soins de J. J. Marcel, directeur général de l'Imprimerie Impériale." Bel exemplaire. ___ Bound with : - SABBAGH, Michel. La Colombe, messagère plus rapide que l'éclair.

        The Insects of Great Britain, systematically arranged, accurately engraved, and painted from naure, with the Natual History of each species,...

      London : J Johnson, 1795 A good copy of this scarce title, with 46 superb hand coloured plates. William Lewin (1747-1795) intended this work to be the first volume of 'The Insects of Great Britain' series. However he died in 1795 with only this volume completed. This is the rare first issue which has the series title page and ends 'End of Volume I'. The second issue amends the title to the 'Papilios of Great Britain' making it stand-alone. The contents are in very good clean condition. We have rated the volume as 'good' because the binding appears to be the original publisher's boards with a later tape covering as the spine. This tape is splitting, which offers the opportunity to rebind to taste. The work has been priced to reflect this. Contents: title pages in French and English; half title page 'The insects of Great Britain'; text in French and English with 46 hand coloured plates; index 3pp.

      Honkoop, Allart and Van Cleef 1795-1809, Leyden, Amsterdam, and The Hague - 222 x 133 mm. (8 3/4 x 5 1/4"). 14 volumes (13 volumes of text, plus index). Translated by J. D. Pasteur. First Edition in Dutch. Contemporary half calf over marbled boards, spines with orange morocco titling label and circular green morocco volume label (one volume expertly rebacked, using the original backstrip). WITH 199 ENGRAVINGS, including 13 title pages, 52 folding maps by C. van Baarsch, and 134 plates (mostly folding) by J. S. Klauber. First title page with paste-over at bottom presumably indicating a (late 19th century?) bookseller (this paste-over torn away in second volume and obscured by a second paste-over in the other volumes). Beddie 52; Tiele 268. Some chafing and abrasions to paper covers, a small chip at the top of one spine, minor wear to joints, half the corners worn, but all of the volumes solid, and nothing approaching a serious external condition issue. Separation at hinges on all but two volumes (without any looseness), a few half titles vaguely soiled, the single-page plates faintly offset, two volumes with inoffensive freckled foxing to plate margins, but still AN EXCEPTIONALLY FINE SET INTERNALLY, the plates especially rich, and the text unusually bright, fresh, and clean. This is a very desirable copy, with remarkably well-preserved text and plates, of the extremely uncommon first Dutch edition of the collected accounts of the three great voyages by James Cook, voyages of exploration that provided the world for the first time with a virtually complete understanding of the Pacific Ocean and Australia. The son of a field worker, Cook (1728-79) began his career at sea as a ship's apprentice. Joining the British navy in 1755, he saw action against the French off the Canadian coast, and surveyed the shores of Newfoundland and Labrador. Having educated himself in mathematics and astronomy, Cook was made lieutenant and put in charge of a scientific expedition that reached Tahiti in 1769, and that explored New Zealand and Australia, the first of his three expeditions circumnavigating the globe. In the course of his second circumnavigation, he was at sea for more than 1,000 days, and saw the ice of Antarctica. For his third and most famous voyage, his crew set sail in two ships, and while proceeding northeast from Tahiti with the aim of discovering a Northwest Passage, they came upon the Hawaiian Islands. There, one of his rowboats was stolen, and Cook responded by seizing the person of the Hawaiian king to compel the boat's return. In the fracas that ensued, Cook received a fatal blow. Our set contains the life of Cook and the first voyage (1768-71) in Volumes I-III, the second voyage (1772-75) in Volumes IV-VII, and the third voyage (1776-80) in Volumes VIII-XIII. Peddie says that the Dutch edition, which is probably based on the German printing of 1781, is seen with an atlas volume, but the present set has all of the plates bound in, as is often the case. The plates are printed on especially thick, textured paper, and this copy has none of the expected tears at plate folds. ABPC lists this item just once since 1975 (though it does show up from time to time at Dutch or Australian auctions not monitored by ABPC). When it does appear, it is almost always in terrible shape.

        Le Tribun du Peuple, ou le Défenseur des droits de L?Homme [Der Volkstribun. Der Verteidiger der Menschenrechte], No. 34: ?Du 15 Brumaire, l?an 4 de la République? von/par Gracchus Babeuf.

      Paris. 6. November 1795. - 52 S. 8°, Priv.Ln. Am 3. September 1794 veröffentliche der linksrevolutionäre französische Agitator François Noël Babeuf (1760-1797) die erste Ausgabe seines Journal de la liberté de la presse, dessen Titel am 5. Oktober in Le Tribun du peuple geändert wurde. Vom Standpunkt seiner sozialistischen Theorien heraus attackierte Babeuf die ökonomischen Ergebnisse der französischen Revolution. Seine Fundamentalkritik stieß indessen auf wenig Resonanz, nicht einmal im Jakobinerklub, dem Babeuf nahe stand. Es folgten Verhaftungen und Gefängnisaufenthalte. Während einer erneuten Inhaftierung im Februar 1795 wurde Tribun du peuple feierlich im Theatre des Bergeres von jenen jungen Männern (jeunesse dorée) verbrannt, die es als ihre Aufgabe ansahen, den Jakobinismus aus der Öffentlichkeit zu verbannen. Mit der Nr. 43 erschien am 24. April 1796 die letzte Ausgabe des ?Le Tribun? Am 10. Mai wurden Babeuf und viele seiner Genossen verhaftet und vor Gericht gestellt. Am 27. Mai 1797 erfolgte die Hinrichtung Babeufs, einem der ersten frühsozialistischen Impulsgeber der späteren sozialrevolutionären Bewegungen, die er mit seinen Ideen beeinflußte. Professionell in rotem Leinen mit in Gold geprägten Lettern am dem Rücken gebunden. Innenteil staubfleckig. Schnitt unsauber. Absolute Rarität! 800 gr. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]
