(WASHINGTON, BUSHROD.) [Ballow, Henry.]
Dublin: Byrne, Moore, Jones, and Watts, 1796. Contemporary calf, rebacked preserving spine. Some mear, foxing and browning. Cloth case.Bushrod Washington's copy, with his signature on the title-page.George Washington's favorite nephew, Bushrod (1762-1829) was executor of his uncle's estate and inherited Mount Vernon. He inherited Washington's library and papers, and this volume was surely shelved side-by-side with those books at Mount Vernon. Bushrod Washington gave John Marshall access to Washington's papers when the chief justice was writing his Life of Washington.George Washington took a special interest in his nephew's legal education, sponsoring his studies with George Wythe and James Wilson. Bushrod Washington practiced law from 1784 to 1798, when John Adams appointed him to the Supreme Court. He served for thirty-one years, concurring with Marshall so often that another member of the Court observed that they "are commonly estimated as a single judge."John Fonblanque (1759-1839 was an English politician and barrister. Bushrod Washington cited his edition of the Treatise of Equityin a number of cases. The influential work appeared in five editions from 1792 to 1820. Thomas Jefferson paid $7 for the third edition in 1807.

1796. Condition: Very good. [18th century FRENCH LITERATURE - LITERARY SOCIETIES - CHANSONS GOGUETTES - SOCIETE DU CAVEAU] - Superb copy in period uniform binding full red morocco! Extremely rare copy, full - A little history... The various cellar companies The company of the Caveau, called in short the Caveau, is a famous Parisian goguette created in 1729 by Pierre Gallet. She died in 1739. Then, for two centuries, until 1939, this name was taken up, with more or less long intervals, by a succession of other prestigious Parisian goguettes which are in its continuity. The last visible trace of the popularity of this name, the Caveau de la République, founded in 1901, still exists today in Paris, which is not a goguette, but a famous cabaret. If the general public knows the latter, on the other hand it has forgotten the four successive Parisian companies of the Cellar. The first and second are called the Cellar. The third is called the Modern Cellar. And the fourth carries, at its beginnings, the name of the Children of the Cellar, to be called then simply Cellar. We attach to the Cellars five companies that do not bear this name: Vaudeville dinners, the Epicurean Society, Momus Evenings, Momus Suppers and Le Réveil du Caveau. These goguettes were exclusively male. All female participation was excluded, even if this principle was not included in the written regulations. There were however two exceptions, one for Virginie Déjazet, the other for Thérésa. Other singing societies in the provinces and abroad took the name of the Parisian cellar: the Caveau Stéphanois or Caveau de … [Click Below for Full Description]

Da VINCI, Leonardo
Paris: Deterville, libraire, 1796. 1796 Leonardo Da Vinci Treatise on Painting Science & ART Illustrated Drawing"Painting is poetry that is seen rather than felt, and poetry is painting that is felt rather than seen." ― Leonardo da VinciOriginally published in 1651, Leonardo da Vinci's 'Trattato della Pittura' or 'Treatise on Painting' is a collection of notes and writings on painting. The main focus of this treatise was to convey that painting was a science and not just an art form. (Greenberg, 259). Da Vinci discusses the state of human emotion in art and incorporates the depictions of those emotions in his art. This 18th-century French edition was published in Paris by Deterville. The sketches and folding plates are particularly desirable, a classic inclusion of this famous work.Item number: #12059Price: $950Da VINCI, LeonardoTraité de la peintureA Paris : Chez Deterville, libraire, an IV.

Ab Februar 1788 nahm er Briefwechsel mit dem Schweizer Naturforscher Charles Bonnet auf, mit dem er sich im Sommer des folgenden Jahres in Genf niederließ.

In dieser Stadt veröffentlichte er naturkundliche Schriften, in denen biologische Beobachtungen und politische Anmerkungen gemischt wurden.

Extrem selten Kopieren, voll - - Eine kleine Geschichte... Die verschiedenen Kellerfirmen Die Gesellschaft des Caveau, kurz Caveau genannt, ist eine berühmte Pariser Goguette 1729 von Pierre Gallet geschaffen. Sie starb 1739. Dann, zwei Jahrhunderte lang, bis 1939, wurde dieser Name in mehr oder weniger langen Abständen von einer Reihe anderer angesehener Pariser Goguettes aufgegriffen, die sich in seiner Kontinuität befinden. Die letzte sichtbare Spur der Popularität dieses Namens, das 1901 gegründete Caveau de la République, existiert noch heute in Paris, das keine Goguette, sondern ein berühmtes Kabarett ist. Wenn die breite Öffentlichkeit letzteres kennt, hat sie andererseits die vier aufeinanderfolgenden Pariser Firmen des Kellers vergessen. Der erste und der zweite werden Keller genannt. Der dritte heißt Modern Cellar. Und der vierte trägt zu Beginn den Namen der Kinder des Kellers, der dann einfach Keller genannt wird. Wir hängen an den Kellern fünf Unternehmen, die diesen Namen nicht tragen: Vaudeville Abendessen, die Epicurean Society, Momus Evenings, Momus Suppers und Le Réveil du Caveau.

Smith, Adam
A. Strahan and T. Cadell, London, 1796. Rare 18th century edition of Adam Smith's magnum opus and cornerstone of economic thought. Octavo, 3 volumes. Bound in full contemporary tree calf, gilt titles to the spine, morocco spine labels. In very good condition. A very nice set of this classic work. Adam Smith's masterpiece, first published in 1776, is the foundation of modern economic thought and remains the single most important account of the rise of, and the principles behind, modern capitalism. "The history of economic theory up to the end of the nineteenth century consists of two parts: the mercantilist phase which was based not so much on a doctrine as on a system of practice which grew out of social conditions; and the second phase which saw the development of the theory that the individual had the right to be unimpeded in the exercise of economic activity. While it cannot be said that Smith invented the latter theory.his work is the first major expression of it. He begins with the thought that labour is the source from which a nation derives what is necessary to it. The improvement of the division of labour is the measure of productivity and in it lies the human propensity to barter and exchange.Labour represents the three essential elements-wages, profit and rent-and these three also constitute income. From the working of the economy, Smith passes to its matter -'stock'- which encompasses all that man owns either for his own consumption or for the return which it brings him. The Wealth of Nations ends with a history of economic development, a definitive onslaught on … [Click Below for Full Description]

ROBERTS, David, George CROLY and William BROCKEDON.
Second edition, with reduced illustrations but with more of them double-tinted or chromolithographed, of one of the most splendid and historically important visual records of the Middle East, after drawings by David Roberts (1796-1864) from the sketches he made from life during his travels through what are now Egypt, Israel, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Syria and Lebanon in 1838 and 1839. His views also provide a very detailed visual record of many sites that were afterward destroyed or disturbed. His views of the modern cities also preserve records of both their architecture and their daily life and he shows spectacular landscapes in the mountains, around the Dead Sea and along the Nile and the Jordan. In very good condition, with occasional light foxing, mostly on the backs of the plates, and with a faint marginal water stain in the lower outside corner of many plates in volumes 3 and 4, not approaching the printed image. The inside front hinge of the second volume as bound has separated from the book block and the bindings show some wear at the hinges and extremities, but they are otherwise also very good. 250 mostly tinted and double-tinted lithographs providing stunning early views of the Middle East.l Abbey, Travel 388 (lacking vols. 5-6); Blackmer 1432 note; Gay 25; Hiler, p. 205; cf.

XXVI, [1], [1 blank], 472; IV, 330, [1], 331-452 pp.First octavo edition of Beechey's account of his celebrated Pacific voyage, which was preceded by a quarto edition in the same year. It "is one of the most valuable of modern voyages and relates extensive visits to Pitcairn Island, Easter Island, the Tuamotu Archipelago, the Society Islands, the Mangareva (Gambier) Islands, and Tahiti, Alaska, Hawaii, Macao, Okinawa, and the coast of California" (Hill).Frederick William Beechey (1796-1856), English naval officer and hydrographer, was appointed to command the Blossom and to sail to the Bering Strait to assist Edward Parry and John Franklin in their third attempt to find a northwest passage. In the winter and spring of 1826-1827 he visited California, Hawaii, Macao, the Ryukyu Islands (Japan) and the Philippines. The account also includes valuable descriptions of San Francisco and Monterey before the American conquest, with many details regarding the mission among the indigenous Americans.The plates include a portrait of John Adams, several portraits of indigenous Alaskans (Eskimos), views of the Pictairn Islands, Gambier Islands and Ryukyu Islands (Loo Choo), and several illustrations of fossils.The account concludes with an extensive appendix, including a vocabulary of the language of the western Alaskan Eskimos (mixing Inuit and Yupik forms), which Beechey presents with a modest introduction, indicating where the words were found and noting both relations and differences between the eastern and western languages.Binding slightly rubbed (especially the marbled sides), corn … [Click Below for Full Description]

OBOLENSKY, Prince Yevgeny Petrovich; Prince Augustin GALITZIN (transl).
[2], 88, [16].First edition of an autobiographical work by Prince Yevgeny Petrovich Obolensky (1796-1865) about his exile to the Siberian labour camps, published (only?) in French translation. The high born Obolensky (son of the Tula governor) was one of the 500 people involved in the December uprising in 1825 and held a prominent position among the Decembrists, being appointed their leader on 25 December. The uprising failed and he was condemned to hard labour and deprived of his princely title. He lived in exile for nearly 40 years until in 1861 he returned to normal life. The present publication appeared soon after. The present translation probably follows Obolensky's original manuscript, for we find no Russian edition in reference works or online. Remarkably a different French translation, by Paul Fuchs, appeared in Leipzig in the same year, with the title Mon exil en Sibérie (see Cat. Russica).In very good condition, with bolts unopened. With a publisher's advertisement on the last 16 pp.l Cat. Russica 52 (cf. 51: Paul Fuchs translation).

BÜRGER, Gottfried August.
Edinburgh: Printed by Mundell and Son for Manners and Miller and sold by T. Cadell, Jun. and W. Davies (Successors to Mr. Cadell) London, 1796. First edition, first issue, of Sir Walter Scott’s first published book; in Greig’s view, it is the translation which ‘best renders the spirit of the original’ (p. 18). Although he was not present when Anna Laetitia Barbauld read William Taylor’s translation at Dugald Stewart’s house, Scott ‘was stimulated to find his own copy of the German original. He met the Aberdonian James Skene of Rubislaw, who had lived in Saxony for some years and had a collection of German books. The poems in the German manner included within Matthew Lewis’s The Monk (1796) were a further stimulus, and in April 1796 Scott tried his hand at translating Leonore. “He began the task after supper, and did not retire to bed until he had finished it, having by that time worked himself into a state of excitement which set sleep at defiance”. So pleased was Scott with the reaction of his friends that he proceeded to translate another Bürger poem, Der wilde Jäger, and the two were published together anonymously as The Chase, and William and Helen 1 November 1796’ (Oxford DNB). Scott later commented: ‘The fate of this, my first publication, was by no means flattering. I distributed so many copies among friends as, according to the booksellers, materially to interfere with the sale; and the number of translations which appeared in England about the same time were sufficient to exclude a provincial writer from competition In a word, my adventure proved a dead loss, and a … [Click Below for Full Description]

[George Washington (1732-1799)]; [J.L. Bozman, Esq. (John Leeds Bozman, 1757-1823)]
Easton [Maryland]: Printed by James Cowan, Tuesday, December 20, 1796. [4]pp. Newspaper. 17 x 10 inches. Bifolium. Laid paper; printed in three columns. Ownership inscription of J.L. Bozman, Esq. Folds; leaves separated with some losses in margins and some surface abrasions; light staining at bottom; good. Contemporary Eastern Shore, Maryland newspaper printing of George Washington's eighth and final State of the Union Address. His address was delivered to Congress in Philadelphia during his final months as the first President of the United States and before his retirement from public life at Mount Vernon. Comprising over four and one-half newspaper columns-over a third of the entire newspaper, the address was drafted with the assistance of his long-time advisor and friend Alexander Hamilton.¹ This assistance is particularly evident in Washington's speaking about commerce, "the encouragement of manufactures," the need for a strong navy, and the "institution of a Military Academy." Additionally, Washington speaks of a "continuance of the friendship of the Indians," of a failed attempt in Georgia to buy a parcel of land from the Creek nation, and of the "Treaty of Amity, Commerce and Navigation" [Jay Treaty] between the U.S. and Great Britain. He also discusses the treaty with Spain, relations with "the Dey and the Regency of Algiers," and the "Act of Congress...for the protection and relief of American Seamen." Declaring that "[o]ur trade has suffered, and is suffering, extensive injuries in the West Indies from the Cruizers and Agents of the French Republic," Washington … [Click Below for Full Description]

AVESANI, Gioacchino (1741-1818)
Verona: Guiliari, 1796. 8vo (214 x 146 mm). 28 pp. Contemporary wrappers of woodblock-printed paper over thin flexible pasteboards, the paper with overall overall zigzag design in red and pale green (fading to backstrip and corners rubbed). *** An heroic poem on cricket extermination. Avesani taught rhetoric at the University of Verona from 1755 until he died. One of the more skillful productions during the vogue in Italy for elevated verses on mundane subjects, Avesani's cricket poem was previously published in Parma in 1795, and appeared later under the title La Grilleide. I locate no copies of any edition in American libraries. The jazzy block-printed stiff paper wrappers, whose overlapping zigzags create a three-dimensional optical illusion, typify the creativity of Italian dominotiers, that is, producers of woodblock-printed decorative papers.Cataloguers have often attributed all block-printed Italian papers to the Remondini firm of Bassano, who indeed dominated Italian decorative paper production in the last quarter of the eighteenth century and into the nineteenth century, and the present Verona imprint may well have been produced by them, but there were a number of smaller Italian firms producing highly varied block-printed paper, including in Bologna and Parma, most of which did not sign their work.
