        THE HISTORY OF MASSACHUSETTS, FROM THE FIRST SETTLEMENT THEREOF IN 1628, UNTIL THE YEAR 1750

      Salem & Boston, 1795. Uniformly bound in modern half calf and marbled boards, spines gilt. Bookplates on front pastedowns. First two volumes with light toning and light foxing; a few leaves in volume two heavily foxed. Third volume with minor scattered foxing and soiling. Some later pencil notations throughout all three volumes. A very good set. The third edition of this classic Massachusetts history, with additions and corrections. "Hutchinson's HISTORY OF MASSACHUSETTS-BAY (2 vols., 1760, 1768) accurately recounted these events and contained sympathetic accounts of Puritanism; the Antinomian heresy of Hutchinson's ancestor, Anne Hutchinson; and Massachusetts opposition in the 1680s to the 'tyrannical disposition' of the royalist governor, Sir Edmund Andros, and his administration's 'harpies.' Hutchinson's HISTORY acknowledged the multiplicity of jostling interest groups in Massachusetts and the duty of government to protect the public interest from the demands of self-interested groups" - ANB. Hutchinson (1711-1780), besides being a colonial historian, was governor of Massachusetts from 1771 to 1773, and was a staunch Loyalist. He left Boston for London in late 1773, after he had helped cause the Boston Tea Party, and remained in Exile in England until his death in 1780. The first two volumes of Hutchinson's work on the Massachusetts colony are complete unto themselves; the third volume was published posthumously. Howes does not note this edition.

Didot désirait rivaliser avec cette entreprise l'édition des Fermiers Généraux, voire la surpasser, mais l'épisode de la Terreur ayant fait disparaître la majorité des souscripteurs, le projet fut finalement avorté et inachevé. Les amateurs ne commandèrent pas les deux premières livraisons de gravures (au nombre de 20) qui pour la plupart restèrent chez l'imprimeur, c'est le cas de cet exemplaire. Cohen dénombre en tout 550 exemplaires qui devaient contenir les gravures.

        [Portrait of Angelica Kauffman and Family]

      1795. Engraving. Printed on laid paper. Collector mark bearing the initials E.O printed in blue ink on verso of sheet. In excellent condition. Image size: 22 x 15 1/16 inches. An exceedingly rare self/family portrait by Raphael Morghen after a painting by Angelica Kauffman. Though the whereabouts of the original painting is not known, this is clearly a self-portrait of Angelica Kauffman (seated) with what appear to be two grown children and a son-in-law. She holds what is perhaps a portrait of her second husband, Francesco Zucchi, who died in 1795. Her children would have to have been from her unhappy first marriage. There is no title but rather a text in French about how virtue is instilled in children. This impressive portrait was painted by the celebrated artist Angelica Kauffman and engraved by the renowned Italian printmaker Raphael Morghen. Kauffman was a child prodigy, who executed her first commissioned work before the age of thirteen. As a child she traveled through Austria and Italy with her father, the painter Joseph Kauffman. She assisted him by painting the backgrounds of his works, but she quickly received her own commissions and established a reputation for herself as an accomplished painter. In 1766 she traveled to London, where she painted portraits and decorative paintings. She was a close friend of Reynolds and was one of the first female members of the British Royal Academy. Goethe called her "the most accomplished woman in Europe". Raphael Morghen received his first artistic training from his father, the accomplished engraver Filippo Morghen. Like Kauffman, Morghen was also a child prodigy, publishing his first engraving at the age of twelve. By the age of twenty he had established himself as one of the premiere engravers in Europe allowing him to garner countless commissions. He worked in Naples, Rome and Florence and produced over two hundred and fifty prints during his prolific career. Benezit, Dictionnaire des Peintres, Sculpteurs, Dessinateurs et Graveurs.

        TREATY OF AMITY, COMMERCE, AND NAVIGATION, BETWEEN HIS BRITANNIC MAJESTY AND THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, CONDITIONALLY RATIFIED BY THE SENATE OF THE UNITED STATES...TO WHICH IS ANNEXED, A COPIOUS INDEX

      Philadelphia, 1795. 12mo. Contemporary calf, leather label. Calf rubbed and worn, chipped quite heavily along backstrip, hinges cracked. Uniformly tanned, scattered foxing. Ink stamp on titlepage. A good copy in contemporary binding, internally sound. The George Brinley copy, with his small book label on the front pastedown and his signature on the titlepage. This later American printing of Jay's Treaty, printed the same year as the first, is most interesting as an example of the hostility provoked by the treaty in the United States. The copious index is comprised of speeches and reports by members of Congress, town resolutions and memorials, newspaper articles and columns relative to the treaty. Also printed is the text of the U.S. Constitution, the two 1778 treaties with France and the 1783 treaty with Great Britain ending the Revolution. The second American treaty with England, negotiated by Supreme Court Chief Justice John Jay, this treaty sought to resolve diplomatic issues arising out of the 1783 peace treaty, settle commercial problems, and resolve neutral rights issues. By Jay's treaty, England agrees to withdraw from frontier posts in the Ohio country which the Americans felt to be clearly in U.S. territory, but the Americans agree to settle pre-Revolutionary debts, and the arrogant British searches and seizures of American shipping were not checked. The treaty provoked much hostile reaction in the U.S., and it was only the prestige of Washington, who felt the measure necessary, that it was passed by the Congress.

        The Rope Bridge at Serinagur [Srinagar]

      published by Thomas Daniell, London - Aquatint by and after Thomas & William Daniell, coloured by hand. Image size: 17 3/4 x 23 1/2; sheet size: 21 1/8 x 29 1/8 inches. A stunning view of the rope bridge across the Alaknanda valley in Srinagar, from Thomas and William Daniell's celebrated book "Oriental Scenery". The Alaknanda River joins the Bhagirathi to form the Ganges. The Daniells' Oriental Scenery is considered to be the finest illustrated work on India. Thomas Daniell and his nephew William spent nine years in India making studies, sketches and drawings of the scenery, architecture, and antiquities that graced the countryside. They then devoted a further thirteen years to publishing their remarkably accurate aquatints. In Britain, the impact was explosive. A cult of Indian architecture, landscaping and interior decoration arose, with the Royal Pavilion at Brighton as its centerpiece. The Daniells gave the English public their first accurate look at the exotic sub-continent. Their great achievement still lies in their ability to blend the picturesque with the real, resulting in images that capture the European taste for the sublime landscape, while still remaining faithful to their subjects. The Daniells brought the romance of the English landscape to the antiquities of India and provided England with an accurate vision of this wondrous country. Consisting of one hundred and forty-four views, published in six parts, the work was issued in seven stages: three sets of twenty-four plates titled Oriental Scenery with title dates of 1795, 1797, and 1801; twelve plates titled Antiquities of India dated 1799; twenty-four plates titled Hindoo Excavations dated 1803; twenty-four plates titled Views in Hindoostan dated 1807; and twelve further plates of Antiquities of India published without a title page in 1808. All plates were engraved by the Daniells and all are taken from their drawings save the twenty-four plates of Hindoo Excavations , which are after drawings by James Wales. In their travels through the Himalayas the Daniells descended to the Alaknanda valley, entering Sringagar on the 27 of April, 1789. They were the first Europeans to visit this remote region and were immediately approached by the local raja, who entreated them to help in resolving a bitter feud with the neighboring ruler of Kumaon. They stayed only three days and left hurriedly in hope of avoiding offending the raja. While there, they sketched this lovely view of the rope bridge across the Alaknanda valley. While in the region William made the following observations regarding their sojourn, "The Rajah was in the middle of one of his recurring feuds with his brother, and "the inhabitants of Sirinagur were crossing the River as Quick as possible - they crowded on the Bridge so fast that we thought at times it would have broke, taking their Chesebust, Cots &c with them" (Journal of William Daniell).

        AN HISTORICAL GEOGRAPHICAL, COMMERCIAL, AND PHILOSOPHICAL VIEW OF THE AMERICAN UNITED STATES, AND OF THE EUROPEAN SETTLEMENTS IN AMERICA AND THE WEST-INDIES

      London, 1795. Publisher's original grey paper backstrips and blue paper boards, paper labels. Minor shelf wear. First volume has a small repaired tear to 3D3v, and 3D4 torn along top edge costing parts of the running titles and first line of text. Small ownership signature on front blank of fourth volume. Else a fine copy. Untrimmed. An advance or proof copy of the first edition of Winterbotham's extensive work on America. This copy has no date on the titlepage, the plates (where indicated) are dated "1794," and the paper is watermarked 1794. The engravings here, in particularly excellent condition, are entirely uncolored, including the tobacco plant, which is usually found colored. Later copies are found with slightly more plates and plans. Presumably this copy was bound before all matter was available, including all the maps, portraits, and the plan of Washington; also, the plates are not distributed throughout the work, but rather found together in the first and second volumes. The directions to the binder is also not present, indicating the work was not completed before this copy was bound. A fascinating early state of a notable publication, entirely unsophisticated, with directions for cancels and other printed bibliographical data still present in the margins. The author was prosecuted for sedition as a result of two sermons preached in 1792. He was found guilty and sentenced to two years imprisonment and a fine of £100 for each sermon. He wrote the present work while serving a term in Newgate Prison. It treats the discovery and early settlement of America, the American Revolution, each of the states in the Northeast and South, Northwest Territory, Canada, and settlements in South America and the West Indies. "A digest of more than two dozen contemporary sources, including the works of Adams, Franklin, Jefferson, Belknap, Gordon, Ramsay, and Raynal and census data, state constitutions, and religious tracts" - Gephart. Most of the handsome plates illustrate birds, quadrupeds, and reptiles found in the West Indies. Includes a list of subscribers.

        Théorie de la terre.

      Paris: Maradan, an III (1795 vieux style) - Edition originale, 3 volumes in-8; T.I: xvi, 422p., 2 planches dépliantes. T.II: viii, 456p., 2 planches dépliantes. T.III: viii, 471p., 3 planches dépliantes. Reliure d'époque en pleine basane mouchetée, dos lisse joliment orné avec pièces de titre et de tomaison en veau sable, tranches rouges, coupes ornées. Quelques minimes frottis aux reliures, petite usure à une coupe au plat inférieur du T.II, mais généralement un bel exemplaire. Editeur du "Journal de physique" de 1785 à 1817, De La Métherie développa une théorie universelle selon laquelle tous les corps de la nature, y compris les organismes vivants, sont le produit d'une cristallisation sous l'eau. Les inégalités de relief à la surface des continents sont elles aussi l'effet de cristallisations, à la manière des cristaux qui précipitent au fond d'un récipient contenant un liquide saturé. Malgré ces conceptions "ultra-neptuniennes", De La Métherie eut une influence non négligeable sur ses contemporains. Si son refus de prendre en compte les phénomènes souterrains ou l'érosion lui vaut une réputation contestée parmi les historiens de la géologie, on doit reconnaître à l'auteur une vision assez novatrice au niveau de l'évolution des espèces vivantes et de l'homme en particulier, qui est considéré comme une sorte de singe perfectionné par l'état social.

Didon, a "tragédie lyrique" to a libretto by Jean François Marmontel was first performed at Fontainebleau on October 16, 1783. "In 1783 Piccinni reached his second peak with a highly successful revival of Atys and the introduction of Didon, which momentarily eclipsed the rising star of Sacchini... The sixth and most successful of the nine serious French operas that Piccinni wrote during his sojourn in Paris, Didon continued to be performed there until 1836 and received performances in French and German translation throughout Europe during the first quarter of the 19th century."

        Recherches sur la nature et les causes de la richesse des Nations. Traduites de l'Anglois d'Adam Smith, par J.A. Roucher. Deuxième édition, Revue et considérablement corrigée.

      - Paris, F. Buisson, An 3e de la République [1795]. 5 volumes in-8, demi-veau bleu nuit, dos lisses ornés d'un décor romantique de palettes, filets gras et ondulés et fers spéciaux répétés, titres dorés, tranches mouchetées (rel. vers 1830). Rare deuxième édition posthume de la traduction par le poète, traducteur et homme des Lumières Jean-Antoine Roucher. Très lue, grâce à la grande renommée de Roucher parmi ses contemporains, cette traduction contribua à diffuser l’œuvre de Smith en France au tournant des XVIIIe et du XIXe siècle. La table, les notes critiques et très nombreuses augmentations et corrections (un volume supplémentaire) ont été composées en prison par Roucher, avant son exécution. Arrêté en même temps qu’André Chénier sous l’accusation imaginaire de "complot monarchiste", les deux poètes seront ensemble condamnés à mort le 7 thermidor an II. Dans la charrette qui les emmena vers la guillotine, ils échangent des vers tirés d’Andromaque: "Oui, puisque je perds un ami si fidèle ". Cette deuxième édition de Roucher est rare. Elle manque à la BnF et ne figurent pas aux principales bibliographies et bibliothèques spécialisées (à l'exception de 'Vanderblue Memorial Collection of Smithiana', p. 25).

        BESKRIFNING OFVER SVENSKA VESTINDISKA ON SR. BARTHELEMI, SAMT OARNE ST. EUSTACHE OCH ST. CHRISTOPHER

      Stockholm, 1795. Contemporary three-quarter calf and speckled boards. Spine worn and rubbed. Later ink ownership signature on front pastedown. Internally bright and clean. Very good. In a half morocco and cloth box. The first edition of Euphrasén's description of the flora and fauna of St. Barts, St. Christopher, and St. Eustachius, which includes the large folding map of St. Barts. Sabin records a 1798 German edition, which was not issued with plates. The work is divided into sections by island and is presented as a series of brief descriptions rather than a cohesive narrative. The author was for many years the pastor of the church at Lorient in St. Barts, and this book is one of the primary sources for the island in its Swedish period, as well as containing the first map of that vaunted refuge of jet- setters. An attractive early scientific investigation of the Lesser Antilles region. Scarce. OCLC locates a total of ten copies.

        Poems by Goldsmith and Parnell -- WITH A SUITE OF SEPARATELY PRINTED CUTS FROM THE 1804 EDITION

      London: W. Bulmer, 1795 - 4to. xx+76 pp. Five full-page, wood-engraved plates, and eight vingettes by Thomas and John Bewick. A superb production printed by Bulmer at his Shakespeare Press and sold originally for a guinea. A contemporary reviewer exulted in "the present admirable specimen of perfection in the kindred arts of printing, engraving, and paper-making . what particularly distinguishes this volume is the ornament which it received from the engravings in wood, executed by the Bewicks, the delicacy and clearness of which are scarcely conceivable." Gordon N. Ray concurred, calling this "by far the handsomest of contemporary volumes containing Bewick's work." Some light foxing, else a very good copy in quarter leather, with some rubbing to the marbled boards. Included with this copy is a suite of five wood engravings printed separately by Bulmer at the time of the second printing of the book. The engravings, dated January 1, 1804, are not mentioned by Hugo or Tattersfield, though the latter notes a set of impressions of full-sized plates, possibily taken from the 1795 printing, issued sometime after 1830 at 21s (see Tattersfiled 2: 532, 3:91n9). The engravings are in remarkably fine condition. Hugo 78 (1795 edn), 4160 (1804 edn); Ray 50; Tattersfield 2.481.

London. 1796. 5pp. [bound with:] EXPLANATORY ARTICLE, SIGNED AT LONDON, THE 15th OF MARCH, 1798, TO BE ADDED TO THE TREATY...SIGNED AT LONDON, THE 19th OF NOVEMBER, 1794. London. 1798. 5pp. Small quarto. Modern half morocco and marbled boards, spine gilt. Titlepage of the "Treaty..." dust soiled. Titlepage of the "Explanatory Articles" signed at Philadelphia in 1796 bound in before the text of the "Explanatory Articles" signed at London in 1798, and vice versa. Near fine. Three works, including the second American treaty with England, known as Jay's Treaty, and two related articles, signed later and added to the treaty, one concerning the Indian tribes in the Ohio country and the other addressing the issue of the St. Croix River and the boundary between the United States and Canada. Jay's Treaty, arguably the most controversial American treaty until the Versailles and League of Nations treaties after World War I, was negotiated with the British by Supreme Court Chief Justice John Jay. It sought to settle questions arising from the Treaty of Paris of 1783, to clarify commercial relations and neutral rights issues between England and the United States, and to secure the British evacuation of military posts in the Old Northwest. By this treaty, England agrees to withdraw from frontier posts in the Ohio country which the Americans felt to be clearly in U.S. territory, and the Americans agree to settle pre- Revolutionary debts. The Americans also received the right to trade with British possessions in the West Indies. The question of neutral rights, however, was not addressed to the liking of American commercial interests or public opinion, and the arrogant British searches and seizures of American shipping were not checked, which proved to be a long-simmering issue. The treaty provoked much hostile reaction in the U.S., and it was due only to the prestige of President Washington, who felt the measure necessary, that it was passed by the Congress. The controversy over Jay's Treaty spurred the solidification of the party division in American politics, between the supposedly pro-British faction led by Hamilton who favored the treaty, and the supporters of Jefferson, who opposed it. This is the official English edition of the treaty. The EXPLANATORY ARTICLE... of 1796, which was printed a year later and is much rarer than the treaty itself, is wholly concerned with the Indian tribes in the frontier, and allows the Indians to pass freely across the line in either direction in order to carry on their trade and commerce without the need for a license. The ESTC locates only five copies of the EXPLANATORY ARTICLE..., three in the Public Record Office (Lpro [3], NN, CSmH), and OCLC adds one more. The EXPLANATORY ARTICLE... of 1798 is also very rare. It is concerned with the delineation of the northeastern border between the United States and Canada, specifically with the river St. Croix and the boundary between New Brunswick and what is now Maine. This thorny issue would not be solved until the Webster-Ashburton Treaty of 1842. OCLC locates no copies of the 1798 EXPLANATORY ARTICLES..., ESTC locates only a single copy (CSmH), and NUC adds one more (MiU-C). A most important American treaty, here enhanced by the rare printings of two important additional articles, possibly the only case in which all are found together (except possibly the Huntington).

        [AUTOGRAPH LETTER, SIGNED, FROM JOHN TRUMBULL TO BENJAMIN WEST]

      Paris, 1795. Old fold lines, though very faint. Chipped along left side of sheet, not affecting text. Minor tears along fold lines on right side; small tear along right side affecting text but without loss. Bright and clean. Very good. John Trumbull writes to his friend and instructor, painter Benjamin West, regarding the purchase of several paintings. This was written during Trumbull's time as John Jay's secretary on the Jay Treaty Commission, after he had been sent to France to discuss the Treaty with James Monroe, the United States minister to France. Trumbull was delayed in France, awaiting orders, and filled his time by collecting art with the help of connoisseur Jean-Baptiste Pierre Lebrun. The letter, sent from Paris, reads: "Dear Sir, You recollect my asking your opinion with respect to the prudence of purchasing pictures at present. I have been tempted to purchase a number which are now packing up to be sent forward as soon as possible, and I hope soon to have the pleasure of shewing you several such as we seldom see. Among them is a large landscape by Berghem [probably the Dutch painter Nicolaes Pieterszoon Berchem], clear and beautiful as Claude. It is allowed here to have no equal among his works except one which is in the National Museum - a small picture by Nicholas Poussin, Christ in the Garden of Olives, the most beautiful thing I ever saw - a small picture a Religious Allegory by Guido - a St. John by Murillos - a Virgin, Child & Angels by Schidone - another by Augustin Carrache, a Magdalen by Carlo Dolci, another by LeSoeur - a Holy Family small & beautiful by Nicholas Poussin - Two capital Landscapes by Salvater - two capital pictures by Teniers, &c &c. They have been bought with the assistance of LeBrun's Judgment, and are most of them from celebrated collections. I have directed them to remain in the King's Warehouse until I arrive which I hope will be in five or six weeks." This letter provides an insight into Trumbull's own collecting interest and artistic influences. Hailed as the official painter of the Revolution, Trumbull studied painting and art in England and France. The youngest son of the governor of Connecticut, the elder John Trumbull very much wanted his son to go into law. Trumbull did study the law, but gladly joined the fight against the British when the Revolution broke out. He eventually served as Washington's second aide-de- campe, having been brought to the General's attention through some very accurate drawings he had made of British gun emplacements. He rose to the rank of colonel as a deputy adjutant-general, but resigned the commission he finally received because it was dated three months late, a slight his honor could not tolerate. He refused to return to the law, finding it quite distasteful, and chose instead to pursue his true passion, art, against his family's wishes. Though he was never particularly wealthy in this pursuit, he did achieve a certain amount of success in his own lifetime. Among his most famous works are those commissioned in 1817 by Congress to adorn the Capitol building: "The Surrender of General Burgoyne at Saratoga," "The Surrender of General Cornwallis at Yorktown," "The Declaration of Independence," and "The Resignation of General Washington.

Of this group, one of the most notable was Dr. Thomas Beddoes (1760-1808), of Shropshire, who founded the Pneumatic Institute at Clifton in 1798 for the treatment of disease by inhalation. Watt was employed to design and construct the apparatus and in 1790 Watt invented the gasometer. The essays by Beddoes and Watt On Factitious Airs (1794-1796) advance the important therapeutic concept of treating certain diseases by placing the patient in a factitious atmosphere, and their general plan of treating respiratory troubles by inhalations of different gasses was revived by Louis Waldenburg in his apparatus for differential pneumotherapy in 1873. Watt had an interest in the development of pneumatic medicine. On 7th December 1794, he wrote to his friend, Sir Joseph Banks, President of the Royal Society Mankind has been long enough occasionally poisoned by the channel of the lungs, let us try if we cannot receive medicines by the same way. cf. Watt's papers, Birmingham City Library. - - "The most important contribution to the study of therapeutic inhalation was made by Thomas Beddoes. . The designs of the apparatus were prepared in the summer of 1794, and Watt wrote to Beddoes 'I send you with this , drawings of my apparatus for producing and receiving the various airs which may be supposed to be useful in Medicine." Barbara M. Duncum, The Development of Inhalation Anaesthesia (1847), pp.64-70 ( 2 pages description of Watt's apparatus). [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
