        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.

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. Manque le faux-titre du tome 1. Jolie série, non rognée. Très frais dans l'ensemble (trace de mouillure dans la marge d'une planche). Célèbre roman libertin dont le succès immédiat produisit 21 éditions en cette fin du XVIIIe. Ce sont des Mémoires narrée par son Héroïne, Félicia, dont le seul et unique but est la recherche de plaisirs. 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. NB : Cet ouvrage est disponible à la librairie sur demande sous 48 heures. [AUTOMATIC ENGLISH TRANSLATION FOLLOWS] New edition, illustrated with 8 figures Borel, 2 free.

        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. 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."

        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. Ausgabe von H. E. Poley (Altenburg 1757). Von vorliegender Ausgabe kein Exemplar im Jahrbuch der Auktionspreise. - Einbände etw. berieben. Mehrf. alt gestempelt.

        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.

        Neues systematisches Conchylien-Cabinet, fortgesetzet durch Johann Hieronymus Chemnitz. Eilfter Band.

      - Nürnberg, in der Raspeschen Buchhandlung, 1795. 4to (290 x 2350mm). pp. (24), 310, (2), with engraved title vignette, some text engravings and 41 fine handcoloured engraved plates. Contemporary calf, gilt decorated spine with red and green gilt lettered label (head of spine shaved). The 11th volume, and the final volume published by Chemnitz, of this large and rare iconography on shells is of particular interest as it describes and portrays many shells from New Zealand and Australia collected during Cook's voyages into the Pacific. Below we give the pages where these shells are described (as well as portrayed). Vol. XI: pp. 8, 17, 21, 34, 59, 84, 117, 166, 135, 162, 165, 168, 179, 180, 247, 274, 281.For example p. 8 'Die Magnificens. Die prächtige Volute. lieget diese Volute alleine in der reichen Conchyliensammlung des Herrn Kunstverwalters Spengler. Er hat davon einige Exemplare aus London bekommen. Jedes hat ihm fünf Guineen gekostet. Ob wir bald mehrere von dieser prächtigen Gattung aus Norfolk zu erhalten das Glück haben werden, wird die Zeit lernen'; p. 21 'Die Südseeische wilde Musik. Voluta Pacifica Solandri'; p. 34 'Aurora. Die Pomeranze. Cypraea Aurora Solandri'; p. 59 'Der Südseeische Kegel. Conus Australis.Es wohnet dieser Kegel in der Südsee, vornehmlich bey Südwallis. Es ist durch Englische Schiffe die von Botanybay hergekommen, in China, an Dänische Seefahrer verkauft worden'; p. 117 'Der Spenglerische Murex. so hat man vor kurzen diese Gattung am Strande von Neusüdwallis entdecket.' p. 162 'Die Südseeische Perspectivschnecke. Tronchus Perspectivus Australis. die von Botanybay nach China gekommen, und einen Theil ihrer Conchylien Dänischen Chinafahrer verkauft.' p. 166 'Die Südseeische Dicklippe. Trochus Labeo Australis. bey Neuseeland sollen die Dicklippen die gemeinsten Schnecken seyn'; p. 179 'Die Sattinpatelle. welche von Neusüdwallis herstammet.'; p. 274 'Das Riesenhorn, Helix Cornu Giganteum. welch auf den Inseln der Südsee und auf Neuseeland wohnet.'; p. 281 'Die Sultanin unter den Hennen, Helix Gallina Sultana. Es wohnet diese seltene Schnecke auf Neuseeland'.Many more shells of the South Seas and the Pacific are described and portrayed in this volume.Many of the shells come from the cabinet of Lorenz Spengler of Copenhagen (ex Museo Spengleriano). His cabinet contained many Cook related items and Spengler was a regular customer of Humprey, 'who wrote to Spengler on 15 October, 1775, apologizing for the delay in sending him shells and explaining that he needed to be on hand to take care of transactions on the return of the 'Resolution" (Andrews, The Southern Ark p. 48)."Friederich Wilhelm Martini, a Hamburg physician, conceived the idea of publishing the first large-scale encyclopaedia of shells illustrated with hand-coloured plates. His ambition was to describe and portray every kind of shell known, an ambition virtually impossible to fulfil, as others have discovered since. No sooner was the third volume of the 'Neues Systematisches Conchylien-Cabinet' in print that its author died, in 1778. Publication was continued by Johann Hieronymus Chemnitz, a Danish clergyman who, between 1779 and 1795, added a further eight volumes" (Dance, Shells p. 24).Nissen ZBI, 2722; B.M. (Nat. Hist.) III, 1252. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
