        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. Paris, Imprimerie Impériale, 1805. Two books partly printed in Arabic with an interesting provenance. ______ Format : In-8. Collation : (4), 135, (3) pp., 4 planches. Demi-basane brune, dos orné.

        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.

        REIZE RONDOM DE WAERELD

      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.

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 Zea

      Leyden, Amsterdam, and The Hague: Honkoop, Allart and Van Cleef, 1795-1809. First Edition in Dutch n. 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.

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.

      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]

Data la struttura dell'opera queste vedute sono molto rare e quasi sempre mancanti alle collezioni ed ai repertori specializzati.

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.

        Valley of Glencoe

      London: Published by Robert Andrew Riddell, 1795. Colour-printed aquatint. Full inscription at bottom of print reads: 'To the Most Noble George Marquis of Tweedale & this View of the Valley of Glencoe is respectfully Inscribed by His Lordships most obedient Humble Servant.' Very good condition apart from some light soiling, minor foxing, and several small losses in the margins. A fine plate of the scenic mountains of Glencoe in the Highlands of western Scotland. This beautiful image is most likely part of a pair prints depicting Glencoe that Riddell published in 1795. Robert Andrew Riddell was a landscape painter, who primarily depicted the scenic topography of Scotland in watercolour. He exhibited one of his works at the Royal Academy in 1793 and gave several of his paintings to the Scottish poet Robert Burns. Archibald Robertson (1765-1835) was a Scottish artist, very talented in both painting and printmaking, who immigrated to America around 1796 (soon after this print was published) where he had a successful career painting miniature portraits on ivory. He also produced a number of topographical prints of New York City places: "Collect Pond" of 1798 among others. A number of his miniature portraits are in the collection of the Metropolitan Museum. This early work of the Highland valley Glencoe is an extraordinarily fine landscape print, aesthetically superior to Robertson's American prints, and a fine example of colour printed aquatint.

      Berlin, Friedrich Vieweg d. Ä., 1795. - Erste deutsche Ausgabe, sehr selten. Der liberale Royalist Mounier (1758-1806) war Deputierter der Generalstaaten und spielte in der Anfangsphase der Französichen Revolution eine bedeutende Rolle. Er hatte 1788 die Ständeversammlung einberufen und damit den Stein der Revolution ins Rollen gebracht. Auf seinen Antrag hin erklärte sich der dritte Stand zur Nationalversammlung und leistete am 20. Juni 1789 den folgenreichen Schwur im Ballhaus. Im September 1789 wurde Mounier zum ersten Präsidenten der Konstituierenden Versammlung gewählt, musste aber schon 1790 in die Schweiz emigrieren, da seine Vorstellungen einer Verfassung nach englischem Vorbild keine Mehrheit fanden. Gentz übertrug nur zwei Bände des vierteiligen Originalwerks, wertete es jedoch durch umfangreiche klärende Anmerkungen sowie neun programmatische inhaltsreiche Zusätze auf, darunter 'Ueber den Unterschied zwischen bürgerlicher und politischer Freiheit', 'Ueber den allgemeinen Willen', 'Ueber die Prägorativen des französischen Adels ', 'Von den Fehlern, welche das Ministerium vor der Versammlung der Generalstände beging'. &#150; Exlibris.

        Outlines of an Historical View of the Progress of the Human Mind:

      London: Printed for J. Johnson,, 1795. being a posthumus work of the late M. de Condorcet. Translated from the French. Octavo (205 x 126 mm). Contemporary half calf, marbled sides, spine gilt in compartments, titles to spine gilt, edges sprinkled green. Contemporary ownership signatures to front pastedown and head of title page. Extremities slightly rubbed and worn, joints cracked but firm, endpapers lightly tanned, occasional minor spotting to text block. A very good copy. First edition in English of Esquisse d'un tableau historique de progrès de l'esprit humain, originally published earlier the same year in Paris. "In the Esquisse ... Condorcet traces the history of man through epochs, the first three covering his progress from savagery to pastoral community and thence to the agricultural state. The next five span the growth of civilizations, and knowledge down to Descartes, and the ninth describes the revolution of Condorcet's own lifetime, from Newton to Rousseau. The prophetic view of the tenth epoch shows Condorcet at his most original. He forecasts the destruction of inequality between nations and classes, and the improvement, intellectual, moral and physical, of human nature" (PMM).

He edited in 1795 an expanded version of a collection of tracts previously published fifteen years earlier and now entitled The Scholar Armed against the errors of the time>. ..... [Jones's] career illustrates the ways in which the high-church mentality, with its connotations of sacerdotalism and respect for divinely constituted authority, was more influential in the 18th century than has sometimes been appreciated. The threats to order posed by the American War of Independence, and even more by the French Revolution, gave Jones and his contemporaries a wide readership.' [G.M. Ditchfield in ODNB]. * This 2nd ed. (the 1st was 1780) is much enhanced by Jones's detailed proposals for the formation of the Society for the Reformation of Principles. They are set out here in full (pp. i-xi) in three papers and a postscript severally dated January 1, 1792, June 11, 1792, and January, 1795. There were to be 'acting' [i.e. active] members, a committee, and annual subscribers. Messrs. Rivington, the London publishers, were to accept subscription.

Bll., 1 nn. S., S.4 - 390 (cplt.). Pappbände d. Zt. mit Buntpapierbezug und Rückenschildchen. Sehr seltenes, unvollendet gebliebenes Werk, das sich zum Ziel setze, die "gesammte Maschinenkunde" mit dem Anwendungsschwerpunkt 'Bergbau' darzustellen. - Poggendorff I, 1421. - Johann Friedrich Lempe (1757 - 1801) lehrte seit 1785 als Professor für Mathematik und Physik an der Bergakademie zu Freiberg. - Lempes Arbeit war ein auf mehrere Bände angelegtes wissenschaftliches Werk, daß sowohl dem Praktiker als auch dem Theoretiker dienen und in eine 'technische' und 'mathematische' Maschinenlehre unterteilt werden sollte. Der ehrgeizige und umfassende Editionsplan ist in der Vorrede zum Band I dargestellt. Realisiert werden konnten nur die beiden vorliegenden Bände: Der erste Band handelt "von Maschinen überhaupt und trägt dann das Technische der sogenannten einfachen Maschinen und hauptsächlich der verschiedenen einfachen Haspel vor, die von Menschen oder Thierkräften bewegt werden." Der zweite Band enthält "was die Aufsuchung, Zuleitung und Aufsammlung der Aufschlagwasser betrifft." (aus der Vorrede). - Stärker berieben und bestoßen; stellenweise löst sich leicht der Buntpapierbezug. Vorsätze mit eingeklebter Bibliotheksstandnummer; bei Bd. I ist die S.295/296 falsch eingebunden; S.292/293 mit größerem Blattausriß am Kopfsteg (Paginierung von S.292 fehlt, ansonsten kein Textverlust); Titel von Bd.II mit Knickfalte; durchgehend (einschließlich Buchschnitt) stock- und fingerfleckig; gebräunt.
