A. von Stiernman's collection which was inherited by Celsius through marriage. This is one of the more important book collections which has been sold at auction in Sweden, although Celsius already had donated significant parts of his library to various public institutions. His valuable collection of manuscripts was for example given to Uppsala University Library. Olof Celsius (1716-94) was a versatile and talented man who after studies at Uppsala University first became assistant professor in literary history. He later worked at the university library and eventually became professor of history in Uppsala. He was ordained in 1751 after which he began a career within the Church. In 1777 he was appointed to the bishopric of Lund in the south of Sweden. Celsius was also active as a politician in the Swedish parliament and was considered one of the foremost speakers of his time. He was one of the first 18 members of the Swedish Academy in 1786 and published a large number of historical works, speeches and psalms. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

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

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

        Armide Drame Heroique... Represente pour la premiere Fois, par l'Academie Royale de Musique, le 23. Septembre 1777. Prix 24 livres. [Full score].

      Paris Des Lauriers [without PN] [ca. 1795]. Folio. Full green vellum with former owner's name "M.lle de Fontenelle" gilt to upper, titling gilt to spine, edges red. 1f. (title), 1f. (publisher's catalogue), 279, [i] (blank) pp. Engraved. Binding worn, rubbed and bumped; spine slightly defective and chipped at head and foot; hinge reinforced with dark green cloth. Occasional light soiling; initial leaves including title and final leaves somewhat foxed; leaves from p. 149 to end somewhat browned.. Third edition, second issue. Hopkinson 45A (c). Loewenberg 359. Lesure p. 237. Hirsch II, 268. RISM G2679. The first issue of the first edition was published by the Bureau du Journal de Musique in 1777; the second issue, by de Marchand in ca. 1778. Des Lauriers took over in about 1780, printing an edition from the original plates but with a newly-engraved title page. The publisher's catalogue is unique to the second issue of his Titelauflage. The libretto by Quinault after Tasso had been set by Lully in 1686. "What persuaded Gluck to choose Armide after Iphigenie en Aulide was probably not any aesthetic consideration; but rather a shrewd feeling that an appeal to French national pride, a sop to the old Lullyist school and a demonstration that he could rival Lully in his own province would none of them come amiss... in none of the scenes in Quinault's poem is it possible for Renaud to appear in a favorable light. Armide, on the other hand, is a bewitching figure. Proud, amorous, and intensely feminine, she is one of the most convincing of Gluck's heroines." Cooper: Gluck, pp. 213- 19.

        HISTOIRE DE LA CONQUETE DU MEXIQUE, TRADUITE DE L'ESPAGNOL D'ANTONIO DE SOLIS [manuscript caption title]

      [Np, but France. ca. 1795].. [433]pp. Folio. Late 19th-century black half morocco and cloth, spine gilt. Corners rubbed. Front inner hinge cracked. Minor soiling, some contemporary ink staining. Very good. Manuscript translation, in French, of this classic history of the conquest of Mexico, first published in Madrid in 1684. Though undated, it is written on paper watermarked 1793 in a neat and uniform hand. A French translation had appeared as early as 1691, but this appears to be a different translation. The HISTORIA DE LA CONQUISTA DE MEXICO was reprinted in multiple editions in every European language and was popular on both sides of the Atlantic. The author was a noted Spanish dramatist and historian. His work includes theatre, poetry, and prose, and he has been considered one of the last great writers of Spanish baroque literature. This work remained the most important European source on Latin American history up through the first part of the 19th century.

      Leipzig: In der Gräffschen Buchhandlung, 1791-1795 - 2 parts bound in one octavo volume (197 x 120 mm). Contemporary half sheep and sprinkled boards, spine ruled gilt in compartments, morocco spine label, edges stained red.

The first German translation of 1770 was made from the third edition of 1767. "The Kosegarten translation of 1791 had more impact [than the 1770 one] partly because of its timing and also because it did provide some contextualisation for work and author" (Tribe).

        A Voyage round the World, in the Gorgon Man of War: Captain John Parker. Performed and written by his widow; for the advantage of a numerous family

      London: Debrett, 1795. In fine condition in a good binding by Morell.. Octavo, pp. xxxii, 150;with the final leaf of advertisements, in handsome half tan morocco, spine gilt-decorated in compartments by Morell, with the bookplate of Henry L. White of Belltrees and his shelfmark. A fine copy of the first edition and now quite rare; one of the earliest unofficial eye-witness accounts of Australia, and the very first account of the colony by a woman. Leaving two children back in England, Mary Ann Parker arrived in Sydney just three years after the First Fleet, having made the long and dangerous sea voyage by choice. Her narrative makes clear that she relished the adventure, delighting in discovering new sights and meeting new people.Her husband, John Parker was the captain of the Gorgon, an eagerly awaited ship in the colony, sent out with stores following the loss of the store-ship Guardian, whose wreck the voyagers saw at Table Bay. She also carried Governor King back to Norfolk Island, as well as the Chaplain of the New South Wales Corps, Baines the surveyor and Burton the botanist.Mary Ann Parker's description of life in the colony is of great interest, and includes a long account of Port Jackson, ships in the harbour, disease on the transports, a discussion of "the propriety of establishing a whale-fishery on the coast of New Holland", breakfast with Phillip aboard the Gorgon, shore visits at Sydney Cove and Botany Bay with descriptions of flora and fauna, and an excellent chapter on the Aborigines including a description of a meeting with Bennelong after Mrs. Parker's return to London.Although little is known of her earlier life Mary Ann had already travelled through France, Italy and Spain and knew sufficient Spanish to be able to act as translator when the Gorgon called at Teneriffe. Elizabeth Macarthur, on meeting Mary Ann on a visit to Rose Hill, described her as "a very amiable, intelligent woman".The Gorgon sailed from Port Jackson at the end of 1791, taking back the First Fleet marines who had been waiting to be repatriated. At Cape Town they were joined by Captain Edward Edwards and survivors from the wreck of the Pandora, including the Bounty mutineers being taken back for trial.Captain John Parker's untimely death in 1794 spurred the young widow to write and publish her narrative which not only tells her personal and lively account, but draws on her husbands' logs, letters and reports to create a factual and remarkably fresh record of this important voyage.

        A translation of the New Testament ... the second edition, with improvements

      London: Pr. by A. Hamilton for George Kearsley 2 vols. 8vo (21.3 cm, 8.4"). I: [4], viii, 410, [2] pp. II: [4], 472 pp.. 1795 Wakefield first published a volume of "those parts only of the New Testament which are wrongly translated in our common version" before having this complete Testament printed in 1791; this is the second edition, revised and corrected, of the entire translation. A theological and political controversialist, Wakefield adopted Unitarian principles, although the Cambridge History of the Bible says his New Testament is "in no sense sectarian." Each volume closes with extensive Notes; the last leaf of vol. I offers a list of other works by this author for sale from the same publisher; and the last page of the second volume has an affixed errata slip. The notes are quite direct and personal, with Wakefield remarking, e.g., on what effect or variety of accuracy he is trying to achieve; what the knot of difficulty at a particular point actually is, for the translator; and whose "excellent" reading he is following (and how the chosen version from the Coptic differs from the Syriac or AEthiopic). He expresses surprise that an "obvious construction" has "escaped the critics" so "remarkabl[y]" long as it has, and in another case confesses that he is "quite at a loss" as to how one clause is supposed to connect with another — definitely, he's a scholar who yet => lives in his pages. Provenance: Armorial bookplates of Justinian Minoch laid in. Recent quarter black morocco and stone pattern marbled paper?-covered sides, leather edges tooled in blind; spines with gilt-stamped title, volume number, place/date, and compartment decorations. Bookplates laid in as above. Half-titles and title-pages with handsome old institutional pressure-stamp; each first text page with inked numeral. Intermittent light foxing, pages otherwise clean. An engaging pair of books in all respects.

        A VOYAGE TO BOTANY BAY, (BOUND WITH SEQUEL) with a description of the Country, Manners, Customs, Religion &c. of the Natives by the Celebrated George Barrington. To which is added his Life and Trial

      London, printed by C. Lowndes for H. D. Sold by Symonds, No. 20 Paternoster Row, no date, circa 1795.. A very early edition, issued as a pamphlet, foreword dated 1793, small 8vo, bound in sixes, approximately 175 x 100 mm, 7 x 4 inches, engraved frontispiece titled 'An interesting discovery in the Woods', vignette on engraved title page (a view of prisoners landing at Sydney Cove), pages: title page, [2], [3]-120, bound in full modern mottled calf, gilt patterned border to covers, gilt raised bands to spine, richly gilt in compartments, gilt lettered red morocco title label, new endpapers.Two 19th century and one 20th century signatures on reverse of frontispiece, no show-through, light offsetting from frontispiece onto title page, fore-edge margin of frontispiece, title page and some pages within slightly trimmed, occasional small very pale marks or pale stains. A very good copy. George Barrington (1755-1804) was a notorious criminal known as 'The Prince of Pickpockets'. He served several sentences on board the prison hulks at Woolwich before being transported to Australia, where he later became Superintendent of Convicts and High Constable in New South Wales. It is unlikely that he had any part in the authorship of this pamphlet but the publishers used his name to lend authenticity and interest to the accounts of Australia that they were putting out including considerable detail on eighteenth-century New South Wales not available elsewhere. BOUND WITH: A SEQUEL TO BARRINGTON'S VOYAGE TO NEW SOUTH WALES, 1801 Comprising an interesting narrative of the transactions and behaviour of the convicts; the progress of the colony; an official register of the crimes, trials, sentences, and executions that have taken place: a topographical, physical, and moral account of the country, manners, customs &c. of the natives,- as likewise authentic anecdotes of the most distinguished characters, and notorious convicts that have been transported to the settlement at New South Wales. Same imprint with title page dated 1801, bound in sixes, pages: viii, (5)-88, (6), collated and guaranteed complete, the final 6 pages contain ?'An official register of the crimes .. of the convicts in New South-Wales?'. Occasional pale foxing otherwise very good. See Ferguson, Bibliography of Australia, Volume I, page 81, No.206 (for a similar copy though ours without the Colophon) and page 125, No.328.
