Lewis, M.G.
London: Printed for J. Bell, 1796. Second Edition. Light foxing to preliminaries, some internal smudges; hinges tender; bookplates on each front pastedown; covers rubbed.. Three vols., small 8vos, 232, 287, 315pp; early 19th century 3/4 morocco and marbled boards; t.e.g. Engraved portraits of Lewis in each volume. Bound in at the rear of Vol. 3 is a neat 8-page calligraphic manuscript of "The Old Hag in a Red Cloak." The second edition of Lewis's classic of Gothic fiction, published in the same year as the rare first edition. Originally published anonymously, the novel's immediate success emboldened Lewis to put his name on this edition. Lewis wrote this, his first novel, at the age of nineteen. While he went on to other novels and collections of verse, The Monk has remained the one work for which he is remembered. This set is distinguished by the presence of "The Old Hag in a Red Cloak," a parody of Lewis's poetry that in this calligraphic manuscript is ascribed to Joseph Jekyll, but which has subsequently been attributed to George Watson-Taylor.

Meares, John (c1756-1809)
Presso Giuseppe Policarpo Merande. Luigi Coltellini, Napoli (Naples), 1796. 4 volumes. [2]+3+[1 blank]+261 pages with frontispiece, four plates and index; [2]+238 pages with three plates (one folding), two maps and index; [2]+220 pages with large foldout map of the pacific and North West Coast of America, one folding plate, geographical vocabulary and index; [2]+252 pages with four maps, two folding plates, maritime vocabulary and index. Small octavo (7 3/4" x 5 1/4") bound in contemporary quarter black leather with gilt lettering and decoration to spine over marbled boards. (Howes M 471) Second Italian edition. John Meares was a navigator, explorer, and maritime fur trader.Meares undertook his first voyage to the northwest coast of North America in 1786, sailing from Calcutta (India) in charge of two trading ships, the Nootka, under his own command, and the Sea Otter, under William Tipping. Meares may have been the principal owner of the Bengal Fur Company, the firm that organized the expedition; he was certainly its guiding spirit. He traded in Alaskan waters and wintered in Prince William Sound, where 23 of his crew died of scurvy. In May 1787 captains Nathaniel Portlock and George Dixon found him there, his ships trapped in the ice. Though captured, in effect, by Portlock and Dixon, Meares was released on bond with the understanding that he would sail directly for Macao and not return to the northwest coast. In January 1788 Meares again sailed for the northwest coast, reaching Nootka Sound in May in the Feliz Aventureira, accompanied by the Efigenia Nubiana under the co … [Click Below for Full Description]

1796. [RELIGIONS - SWITZERLAND PIEDMONT - PROTESTANTISM] most Rare work on the VAUDOIS in its original edition of 1796! - BREZ (Jacques) 1771-1798 Vaudois pastor, naturalist and historian. Biography He was born in Torre Pellice to the notary Jean Pierre and Marie Elisabeth Renée Appia, daughter of the pastor and moderator Daniel. He began his theological studies in Lausanne, working in parallel in the natural sciences, in particular in the field of entomology. From February 1788, he entered into correspondence with the Swiss naturalist Charles Bonnet, with whom he became closer when settling in Geneva during the summer of the following year. Due to disagreements with the Italian Stock Exchange Company, the body which covered the expenses of Vaudois students, he began the activity of tutor to a Dutch family, from 1790 in Utrecht. In this city, he publishes natural history writings mixing biological observations and political annotations During his life, he was a student at the Physical Sciences Society of Lausanne, member of the Natural History Society of Paris and of the Free Emulation Society of the Seine-Maritime of Rouen and secretary of the Utrecht Natural Sciences Society. In 1796, after being called to the church in Middleburg, Zeeland, he was consecrated a pastor. The same year, he published in Paris the first two parts of a History of the Vaudois started since his stay in Lausanne and which will remain unfinished, following his untimely death, in 1798 at the age of twenty-seven. - Original Edition published anonymously name of the author indicated with the pen on th … [Click Below for Full Description]

Seconde édition française très augmentée, avec en supplément les "Observations sur le commerce des Etats dAmérique pour servir de suite aux Révolutions des Etats-Unis d'Amérique" par Jean Lord Sheffield, le tout traduit par Mirabeau. David Ramsay, né en Pennsylvanie, éduqué à Princeton, s'établit comme médecin à Charleston. Pendant la guerre il servit comme chirurgien dans la milice de Caroline du Sud, et fut capturé par les Anglais. Ensuite il devint président du Sénat de Caroline du Sud. Il est considéré comme un des premiers historiens de la guerre d'indépendance américaine. Il relate principalement la tentative des Anglais d'envahir la Caroline du Sud en 1780-81. Devant cet échec, l'armée britannique se déplaça vers Yorktown (Virginie), où elle se heurta aux troupes de Washington et ses alliés français. Thomas Jefferson lui écrivit en 1785: "I am much pleased to see that a commencement of those special histories of the late revolution which must be written first before a good general one can be expected. I shall be more pleased to see the remaining parts as well executed as this which sets the example" (Jefferson to Ramsay, 31 August 1785). ¶ Sabin 67693 2e édition française très augmentée - Pas dans Chadenat - Pas dans Leclerc - Pas d'ex. au cat.

Wollstonecraft, Mary
London: J. Johnson, 1796. First edition. Contemporary tree calf with gilt and morocco label to spine. Unrestored and lovely, with just a bit of rubbing to extremities. Previous owner's stamp of D Blachford to header of title, else a bright and unmarked copy with wide margins. Measuring 130 x 220mm and collating [4], 262, [4, appendix and notes], [2, adverts listing Wollstonecraft's books, the first known bibliography of her work]. Wollstonecraft published Letters only four years after her groundbreaking feminist manifesto Vindication of the Rights of Woman, making hers the first published account in English of a woman travelling for business. When a Norwegian ship's captain stole valuable cargo from Gilbert Imlay's ship in 1794, the Englishman reached out to his lover, Mary Wollstonecraft, requesting that she travel there as his proxy to obtain compensation. A new mother with a baby in tow, Wollstonecraft nevertheless accepted the charge; and she not only tackled the task set for her by Imlay, she also spent four months traveling to remote destinations, meeting and bargaining with officials, studying local customs, and exploring exotic landscapes. The resulting travel narrative broke new ground at its publication. Wollstonecraft already had become a founder of a feminist movement with her Vindication of the Rights of Woman; and with Letters, the first English-language account of a woman business traveler, she put principles of female independence into action. Her adventurous spirit combined with her command over language "found an enthusiastic public, not least among yo … [Click Below for Full Description]

BEDDOES, Thomas, & James WATT.
Bristol: Printed by Bulgin and Rosser, for J. Johnson...London. 1796 (-1795, -. 5 parts in 3, in 1 volume, 8vo, collations as in ESTC, with 10 engraved plates (6 folding) and 2 folding letterpress tables (numbered 1-4 on 2 sheets). Complete with two half-titles and the final advert leaf. Tear in one folding table neatly repaired without loss, some minor browning and offsetting. Contemporary tree calf, rebacked, corners a little worn. Third edition of Parts I & II, first editions of Part III and Parts IV & V, a complete set of all the published parts. Beddoes was the first to suggest that the inhalation of certain gases would relieve pain, and in 1798 he founded a research institution for the study of inhalation therapy, largely funded by Josiah Wedgwood. The apparatus was designed by James Watt, and manufactured by Boulton & Watt. Beddoes appointed as superintendent the nineteen-year old Humphry Davy, who undertook an extensive series of chemical and physiological experiments on factitious airs, and in 1799 produced pure nitrous oxide and discovered its analgesic properties. Between 500 and 600 copies of the first edition of this book, consisting of 80 pages, were published in October 1794. A second edition was published the following year consisting of Parts I and II, closely followed by the present third edition. Complete sets of all five parts are extremely rare. The first part by Beddoes covers experiments that he conducted on humans and animals subjected to inhaling various gases and includes correspondence and cases from many distinguished physicians.

The Traité de dynamique, one of d'Alembert's most famous scientific works, demonstrates d'Alembert clearly recognized that a scientific revolution had occurred and sets out to formalize the new science of mechanics - an accomplishment often mis-attributed to Newton. The first part of the treatise comprises d'Alembert's own three laws of motion: inertia, the parallelogram of motion, and equilibrium. The second part contains the "d'Alembert's Principle" in which states that the internal forces of inertia must be equal and opposite to the forces that produce the acceleration - a theory which is applied to many mechanical and technical problems, in particular to the theory of the motion of fluids. THis work was d'Alembert's first major book and it is a landmark in the history of mechanics. It reduces the laws of the motion of bodies to a law of equilibrium" (PMM). [Attributes: Hard Cover]
