        Poems and Fugitive Pieces

      London; Edinburgh: Cadell and Davies; Bell and Bradfute, 1796. Sole edition. Leatherbound. Good +. xii, 172 p. 16 cm. Engraved frontispiece. Full leather with gold trim on boards. Respined, edges repaired, corners rebuilt. Hinges repaired internally. Ink inscription on title page. Some dampstains, becoming darker towards rear. Pages wrinkled. These verses are often attributed to Esther Milnes Day (1753-1792), wife of the poet Thomas Day. However, "Eliza" seems to have been a common signature for women poets of the 18th century and the author may also be the poet Elizabeth Ryves (1750-97) or the poet Eliza Day (ca. 1734-1814). When this scarce volume was first published, a review in British Critic stated: "Judicious friends would have advised the fair writer to omit the complimentary poems to herself, and perhaps the portion which is denominated comic poetry. Eliza most excels in the pathetic, and the lines on the death of a tender mother have very consideralbe merit." Besides the aforementioned poem, anyone who has ever feared for the life of a sick pet will sympathize with "Lines on a favourite Squirrel." Note the notation to Fitzroy Teetotal Library on the title page; the Fitzroy Teetotal Association was founded in London in 1839 and its hall was located at 21 Little Portland Street.

        Frontispiece, “Lenore, clasping her spectral bridegroom,” to Leonora. A Tale, Translated and altered from the German of Gottfried Augustus Burger.

      London: by S. Gosnell for William Miller, 1796. Frontispiece only, 8 x 6.5 in. Trimmed to the image so losing the text below, but retaining the imprint at the foot “Blake inv. Perry sc.” One or two light spots of foxing, generally very good. Frontispiece only. Blake’s illustrations to Leonora were ridiculed in the press upon publication, which might account for it being one of the rarest letterpress books to contain illustrations designed by Blake. Five copies have sold in the last 30 years; one has appeared at auction. The year 1796 saw three translations of Burger’s Lenore, one by J. T. Stanley, one by H. J. Pye, the Poet Laureate, and a third by W. R. Spencer, with designs by Lady Diana Beauclerk. Blake was commissioned to create three illustrations for the Stanley translation, including the frontispiece, “Lenore, clasping her spectral bridegroom,” which is famous for supposedly having hung as a separate print in C.G. Jung’s office. The British Critic for September, 1796, spitefully compared Lady Diana’s pictures with those of Blake’s: “We are highly impressed by the propriety, decorum and grace which characterizes all the figures of this elegant artist [Lady Beauclerk], even those of a preternatural kind; forming a most striking contrast to the distorted, absurd and impossible monsters exhibited in the frontispiece to Mr. Stanley’s last edition [i.e. Blake’s design]. Nor can we pass by this opportunity of execrating that detestable taste, founded on the depraved fancy of one man of genius, which substitutes deformity and extravagance for force and expression, and draws men and women without skin, with their joints all dislocated; or imaginary beings which neither can nor ought to exist.” The Analytical Review chimed in with comments including “perfectly ludicrous, instead of terrific.” Bentley, Blake Books, 440. Easson and Essick, William Blake Book Illustrator, vol. 2, XLVI. Bindman, Complete Graphic Works of Blake, 380-382.

        Plans of Estates Belonging to William Witham Esq.

      1796. 1796 - Small 4to. 10 x 8 inches. 13 detailed hand coloured estate plans with accompanying field/property names and extents. Reversed calf, leather title label. William Witham of Cliff[e] [died 1802 without issue], left his estates to his niece Eliza who was married to Henry Silvertop. Silvertop changed his name to Witham, adopting the Witham coat of arms. He was important for the work he did for the Mechanics Institute providing education for the working classes and the Relief of the Poor. He also published books and articles based on his descriptions of fossils using William Nicol's method of examining thinly sliced sections under the microscope. It is likely that this survey was prepared for the purposes of his will. The various properties are in the vicinity of Manfield, North Yorkshire, and Darlington, County Durham; including Cliff[e], Pinkney Carr and Howden Hill. Although the surveyor is not named, it is a highly accomplished survey and it is likely to be the work of one of the Fryer family of Durham, the leading local surveyors at that time. Their archive is held by Newcastle Libraries. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Description Topographique et Politique de la Partie Espagnol de L'isle Saint-Dominigue;

Contemporary French tree calf, elaborately gilt. 8, 307, [1errata]; 311, [1]pp. Philadelphia, Imprimé chez l'Auteur, This is an extremely fine copy of a most uncommon Philadelphia imprint. It bears the engraved book label ?Decrés? being that of the French Admiral who became Napoleon's last minister of the Navy. Moreau de Saint-Mery issued four works concerning Hispaniola, this one, which uniquely describes the Spanish part of the island is significantly rarer and very seldom appears complete with its map. Moreau-Saint-Méry was born at Port Royal, Martinique, in 1750. At the age of 19 he went to Paris, where he became a Counsellor of State, and a great advocate of reforms in the French colonies & in the better treatment of the blacks. Hearing that Robespierre intended to have him arrested he fled from France and in 1793 went to the United States. Having lost all his property he turned his attention to business and established himself at Philadelphia as a bookseller and printer. In 1798 he was able to return to France, where he finally died in 1819. His works on the Island of Santo Domingo & other parts of the West Indies, are of great interest. Evans, 30817; Sabin, 50570.

        I CONTADINI DELLA TOSCANA. Serie completa composta da un frontespizio e 60 tavole di stupendi costumi, incisi in rame a colori su disegno di Antonio Bicci, sotto la direzione di (e in buona parte incise da) Carlo Lasinio.

      - Firenze, Pagni e Bardi, 1796. Cm. 33x23 + ampi margini intonsi. Ciascuna stampa con bella cornice dorata, eseguita dalla Ditta Miller di Londra (fine sec. XIX). Misure della cornice: cm. 58x40, vetri originali, tranne 6 sostituiti. Carlo Lasinio, incisore e pittore (Treviso 1759 - Pisa 1838), svolse la sua attività principalmente a Firenze, dove fu prof. all'Accademia e a Pisa, dove fu Conservatore del Camposanto. Praticò tutte le tecniche tradizionali dell'incisione - bulino, acquaforte, maniera nera, incisione a contorno - e sperimentò con successo il rivoluzionario sistema Le Blon - d'Agoty, che prevedeva l'utilizzazione di lastre multiple inchiostrate con i colori, rosso, giallo e azzurro (d'Agoty aggiunse come quarto colore il nero) secondo la tecnica del mezzotinto - cioè con una graffiatura o granitura completa della lastra di rame e una successiva lisciatura delle parti volute chiare: la parte granita tratteneva il colore fornendo un'incisione dallo scuro al chiaro che dava l'impressione dell'acquerello. Il Lasinio sperimentò a lungo tale tecnica - che già aveva interessato anche Bartolozzi - perfezionandola e combinandola con altre e ritoccando a mano col pennello alcune parti meno riuscite. Ne I contadini della Toscana però non utilizzò le lastre multiple, ma un altro sistema: quello detto a la poupée; usando una sorta di tampone per applicare ciascun colore sulla medesima lastra. Per la bibliografia de I contadini della Toscana cfr. soprattutto l'introduzione di G. Devoto e lo studio di A. Forlani Tempesti entrambi editi a corredo della ristampa in fac-simile (Milano, Il Polifilo, 1970). Al Gabinetto dei Disegni e delle Stampe degli Uffizi è presente solo un album della meno pregiata tiratura in bianco e nero (cfr. il catalogo della mostra "Lasinio. Incisioni" tenuta a Firenze e stampato da Olschki nel 2004).

Defence of Usury; Shewing the Impolicy of the Present Legal Restraints on the Terms of Pecuniary Bargains. To Which is Added, A Letter to Adam Smith, Esq. LL.D. On the Discouragement of Inventive Industry. Philadelphia: Printed for Matthew Carey, 1796. [iv], [5]-149, [3] pp. Includes 2 pp. publisher advertisement. 12mo. (5-3/4" x 3-1/2").

Light toning to text, light foxing to a few leaves, early owner signature to head of title page and left-hand margin of p. 50. An attractive copy. $2,500. * First American edition. Bentham's celebrated essay on the usury laws as an attack on liberty. It began as a series of letters written between January and April 1787 during his long stay with his brother Samuel at his house at Zadobras, near Crichoff in Russia. The letters (13 in all) were written to his friend, George Wilson, in London, largely in response to reports (later to be unconfirmed) that Pitt was then contemplating a reduction of the rate of interest from 5 to 4%. Bentham took the opportunity to write about the commercially thorny interest-rate question including, of course, what he regarded as the stupidity of the government controlled interest rates. He early on took issue with Adam Smith, who seemed, in the Wealth of Nations, to approve the 5% limitation. In May 1787, the manuscript was sent to Wilson. It was published in 1788 through the agency of Jeremiah Bentham. Cohen, Bibliography of Early American Law 2641.

        Memoria sobre las Observaciones de Latitud y Longitud en el Mar. Por D. Dionisio Alcalá-Galiano, Capitán de Navío de la Real Armada.

      En la Imprenta de la Viuda de D. Joachin Ibarra, [Madrid] 1796 - "Science And Navigation In Spain - XVIII Century. Illustrated". 8vo.; recent quarter calf; 7 folding tables. Rare treatise by the Spanish naval, cartographer and explorer Dionisio Alcalá Galiano (1760-1805), on the determination of latitude and longitude at sea. Galiano was a pioneer of the use of the chronometer in Spain, allowing him to produce far more accurate maps of the Spanish colonies in the Americas than previously available. After graduating from the Spanish naval school in 1779 he participated in hydrographic surveys of the Spanish and South American coasts and other Spanish naval scientific explorations. He joined the expedition of Alejandro Malaspina to Vancouver; at the age of 45 he was killed at the battle of Trafalgar. This second edition, well printed by the widow of Joaquin Ibarra, Spain's greatest printer, on fine Catalan laid paper by Joseph Llorens, who had supplied paper from Ibarra's famous 1780 Cervantes, is greatly expanded from the first edition of the previous year, which did not contain the folding tables. * OCLC/WorldCat lists only eight copies in institutional libraries. Palau 5752 (calling for only 6 folding leaves); Fernández de Navarrete: Biblioteca Marítima Española I 367 – 373; Howgego: Encyclopedia of Exploration to 1800 - G6 (p.411); COPAC records only the first edition of 1795. 7 pp páginas [Attributes: First Edition]

        Joan of Arc.

      Bristol: printed by Buligin and Rosser for Joseph Cottle [et al],, 1796. Quarto (270 x 212 mm). Contemporary tree calf, titles to red sheep label to spine, decorated gilt in compartments, frames gilt to covers, edges speckled black, marbled endpapers. Later ownership inscription of the writer and publisher Roger Senhouse (co-founder of Secker & Warburg). Rebacked preserving original red morocco spine label, wear to extremities, slight scratching to boards, light foxing to prelims and endpapers; a very good copy. First edition, association copy presented by the ladies of Llangollen and inscribed on the title page "Anna Seward. The gift of the Right Honorable Lady Eleanor Butler and Miss Ponsonby. Jan. 1797". Lady Eleanor Butler (1739–1829) and Sarah Ponsonby (1755–1831), known together as the Ladies of Llangollen, were a lesbian couple who lived in seclusion in the Vale of Llangollen in Northern Wales. They dressed in men's clothing, furnished their home, Plas Newydd, in the Gothic style, and devoted their days to gardening, reading and study. Their unconventional life attracted the attention of outsiders, and many writers – including Southey, Byron, Shelley, Wordsworth, and Scott – came to visit the Ladies. The recipient, Midlands poet Anna Seward (1742–1809), first visited the Ladies in 1795, beginning an important friendship and correspondence. In 1796, Seward published "Llangollen Vale", a poem celebrating her friendship with the Ladies. Seward mentioned her reading of Joan of Arc in a letter to Miss Ponsonby ("My progress through Joan of Arc is very slow, and slow I always make it over a composition of real genius") and responded at length to the epic in a letter of 23 Jan. 1797 to Lady Butler ("Its poetic beauties are so numberless, so intrinsic, that its poetic defects, however conspicuous, are as dust in the balance"). Seward's "Lines written after reading Southey's Joan of Arc" was published in the European Magazine, August 1797.

        Manuscript Letter, Signed, in French, by Count Nicholas Repnin to Colonel von Essen (d'Essen)

      Grodno, 1796. February 22, 1796. Original signed manuscript letter on single sheet of laid paper (ca. 36 x 25 cm), folded once vertically; 4 pp. Additional old fold lines; near fine. Nicholas Repnin was one of the foremost Imperial Russian statesmen of the eighteenth century, second in fame only to Alexander Suvorov. Under Catherine the Great, he served as minister plenipotentiary in Poland, in effect ruling the country and playing a crucial role in the gradual dissolution of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth. He was widely known for his ruthless tactics, which included dictating the Russian demands to the Polish diet and arresting and exiling his opponents, such as the bishops of Kiev and Warsaw. During the Russo-Turkish War of 1768-74, Repnin resigned in order to lead Russian troops into battle against the Ottoman forces. But it was during the next Russo-Turkish conflict (1787-1792) that Repnin rose to fame as the most successful Russian commander apart from Suvorov (1729-1800). The present letter was written in Grodno, during Repnin's tenure as governor-general of the Lithuanian provinces, and concerns an unsavory affair involving one of von Essen's subordinates, the subject of which is merely circumscribed and couched in an abundance of rhetorical flourishes. At the time of writing, Repnin was at the height of his fame, following his successful, if controversial role in the Russo-Turkish War, and shortly before his death in Riga in 1801. A rare private letter, written entirely in French and signed by the author. We are unable to find information about the addressee.

      London - T Payne, T Cadell, W Davies, 1796 Book. VERY GOOD INDEED. Hardcover. First edition.. A first edition of Fanny Burney's Camilla. An English novelist, diarist, and playwright, Fanny Burney (1752-1840) had a long and prosperous writing career. Through writing four novels, eight plays, twenty volumes of journals and letters, and a biography she gained critical respect in her field. Burney wasa forerunner to Jane Austen, Thackeray, and other novelists with a satirical edge. The greatly popularnovel Camilla focuses on the Tyrold family and their matrimonial concerns. It is thought to advance the contemporary spirit of romanticism as it follows their hardships and mistakes on the path of love. Burney brings in social, emotional, and mental dilemmas that made Camilla a popular read. Without the scarce half titles and final advert leaf to volume I. Complete in five volumes. Condition: Rebound in a cloth binding with original publishers boards. Externally, sound with rubbing. Bumping to boards. Light browning to pastedowns and free-endpapers.
