        A Journey to Jerusalem : Containing the Travels of Fourteen Englishmen in 1667, to the Holy Land, and Other Memorable Places Noted in Scripture. : To Which Is Prefixed, Memorable Remarks Upon the Ancient and Modern State of the Jewish Nation

      Hartford : Printed by J. Babcock, 1796-01-01. Hardcover. Good. 12mo. 132 p. ; 18 cm. First American Edition. An unsophisticated copy. Contemporary leather spine over blue boards. Worn binding. Printed on blued paper. Foxing throughout. Tear with loss to text on the middle of pg 21/2. Evans 30301Nathaniel Crouch was an English printer and bookseller, and under the pseudonym Richard Burton (or R.B.) wrote historical books as well. As a historian, he is considered a hack, borrowing material from other books and rewriting them under his pseudonym, then publishing and marketing them under the Crouch imprint, though more recent assessments of his life and career see him as an important figure in the development of historiography, especially in the popularization of a hitherto high-culture genre of discourse. "With probably little education, but something of a natural gift for writing, Crouch had the sagacity to see that the works of the learned, from their form and price, were kept within a narrow circle of readers, while there was a vast multitude outside who were able and willing to read, provided that a literature suited to their means and capacities was supplied to them. He accordingly set himself the task of transfusing large and pompous books into a series of small, cheap volumes, modestly concealing his authorship under his nom de plume. Thus, he produced Surprising Miracles of Nature and Art, and many other treatises on very plain paper, and sold [them] at an exceedingly reasonable rate. His enterprise and diligence were rewarded by large sales and considerable wealth." --Kacirk, Jeff (1997). Forgotten English

        The origin of duty and right in man, considered

      London: J. Bateson, Richard White 1796 - A handsome volume. Bound in later ¼ leather over marbled boards. Shelf wear to extremities. Some foxing. [4], ii, 179, [1] p. Unmarked, except there is a long, contemporary analytic inscription on the title page. An interesting argument for natural law that attacks the civil contract of Locke and his ilk. From the title page, in neat contemporary penmanship: ?In a letter to the Honorable Thomas Erskine containing some stricture on his view of the causes and consequences of the present war with France by John Gifford Esq ? author of a letter to the Earl of Lauderdale. He observed that the Origin of Duty and Right of Man Considered is a work which contains more useful constitutional knowledge than is to be found in the Political writings of Locke, & all his supporters on this important topic. The author here displayed a study [of the] philosophic mind actuated by the best principles and directed end. The well being of all. The authorship is not stated, which comes as no surprise considering the danger to English free speech during this period. This being said, the author probably was Joshua Tucker (aka Dean Tucker) (1713-1799). Tucker was a Welsh clergyman, economist and political writer. He was an opponent of Locke's social contract theory (as this tract is). Additionally, I located an old bookseller?s catalog from 1816 that groups this tract with some of Tucker?s other political pamphlets (see A Catalogue of Books, now on sale by Emerson Charnley). I have also included a copy of The Monthly review, Article XXII. p. 325-326. The article has an in depth contemporary criticism of this work.ESTCT43423 [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Leonora Bound with the Fables : Of John Dryden, Ornamented with Engravings From the Pencil of the Right Hon. Lady Diana Beauclerc.

      London: Printed for W. Miller; Printed by T. Bensley 1796 - 2 Volumes bound in one. Fine binding. Folio. viii, 35 pages, 5 pl., 4 vignettes; Fables of Dryden, 1797 printing., 4, xviii, 241p, 9 pl, 15 head and tail vignettes. Bound in modern morocco leather. Gilt lettering, gilt ruled and embossed spine. 5 raised bands. Marbled endpages. Toning to pages verso plates. Light toning. Light tanning to pages. Clean, unmarked pages. ESTC T128162; Lowndes, 678. Gottfried August Burger was a German poet. His ballads were very popular in Germany. His most noted ballad, Lenore, had a profound effect on the development of Romantic literature throughout Europe and a strong influence on the English ballad-writing revival of the 1790s. Lady Diana Beauclerk (nee Lady Diana Spencer), was an English noblewoman and artist. During those years of her second marriage, Lady Diana's artistic talents became particularly evident: she practiced portraiture, and her enormous output of small drawings of fat cupids entangled in branches of grapes and little girls wearing mob caps gave place to larger and more ambitious groups of peasantry introduced into landscaped backgrounds. She worked chiefly in pen and ink, pastel, and watercolor. In 1796 she illustrated the English translation of G. A. Burger's ballad Leonora and in 1797 The Fables of John Dryden; in both cases her illustrations were engraved mostly by Francesco Bartolozzi. (DNB) The esteemed and highly sought-after engraver Francesco Bartolozzi was selected to translate her drawings to copperplates attests to her high standing. Only two books were published accompanied by her illustrations, both engraved by Bartolozzi and published by Bensley: Spencer?s translation of Lenore, 1796 and the Fables of John Dryden in 1797. ?The golden Preface [of Dryden?s Fables, included in this edition] describes his delighted progress from Homer to Ovid, from Ovid to Chaucer, and from Chaucer to Boccaccio, the volume constantly swelling in his hands; ?I have built a house,? he concludes, ?where I intended but a lodge?? Dryden?s search for materials was far and wide? He plundered medieval as well as ancient story; he went to the greatest tellers of tales wherever they were, whether they were Greek, Roman, Italian, or English? The chime of Dryden?s verse was never done? (Van Doren, 214-15) [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Friedens-Präliminarien. Hrsg. von dem Verfasser des heimlichen Gerichts (d. i. Ludwig Ferdinand Huber). 40 Stücke in 10 Bänden (alles Erschienene). Zus. 10 Bl., XX, 4004 S., 5 Bl. Mit 1 (von 2) Porträts und 1 (von 2) Faltkarten. Pappkartonagen d. Z. (berieben, Gelenke teils stärker beschabt) mit etw. späteren Rückenschildern.

      Berlin, Voss, 1794-1796. - Textlich vollständiges Exemplar der bedeutenden Zeitschrift, wichtig auch deshalb, weil eine Reihe von Erstdrucken von Briefen und Aufsätzen Georg Forsters enthalten sind. Huber hatte durch seine Beziehungen zu Therese Forster die Möglichkeit, den Nachlass Forsters durchzusehen und zu verwerten. "So erschienen hier etwa – noch ohne Autorennennung und mit gehässigen Anmerkungen Hubers versehen – die 'Parisischen Umrisse', in denen Forster versucht, anhand der aktuellen Pariser Ereignisse eine Theorie der Revolution überhaupt zu geben; weiter die Aufsätze 'Revolution und Gegenrevolution im Jahre 1790', 'Uber die Beziehung der Staatskunst auf das Glück der Menschheit' und endlich der Entwurf eines Schreibens der allgemeinen Administration von Mainz an die Kommissarien des Nationalkonvents. Außerdem verstümmeln, zerstückeln und verfälschen der Verleger, der Herausgeber und die Witwe Forsters eine Fülle von Briefen, die zeigen sollen, daß Forster 'kein Verräther, kein muthwilliger Schwindelkopf, kein ehrgeitziger Unruhestifter geworden war'. So wird aus dem Revolutionär und Bürger der französischen Republik der resignierende Georg Forster gemacht, den L. F. Huber für die eigene Selbstdarstellung und Selbstrechtfertigung benötigte" (Hocks/Schmidt). Unter den weiteren Mitarbeitern sind zu nennen: C. L. Haller, K. E. Oelsner und E. A. W. Zimmermann. Übersetzt wurden Texte von Robespierre, Sieyès, Lafayette, Mallet du Pan, Volney u. a. – Äußerst selten! Vorhanden sind in Band 2 die Karte des Feldzugs an der Maas und das Porträt von Robespierre in Band 5. Das Porträt der Marie Antoinette in Band 1 sowie die Karte vom Feldzug in der Vendée in Band 3 liegen in Kopie bei. Die Hinweise auf diese Beigaben sind auf den Titeln alt überklebt.

        The History of Sir Charles Grandison; in a Series of Letters

      London: T. Longman et al., 1796. Seven volumes, small octavo; each volume with an engraved frontispiece showing a scene from the narrative; a fine set in contemporary half roan, marbled paper sides, flat spines lettered in gilt. A very attractive set, from the library of the Marquess Conyngham at Slane Castle, Ireland, with his bookplate in each volume and signature at the top of each title page.First printed in 1753, Richardson's novel set out to create a perfect gentleman to counter-balance such characters as the caddish Mr. B- of Richardson's Pamela and the unheroic males in Fielding's Tom Jones. Jane Austen and George Eliot both thought highly of the book, and Ruskin ranked it with Don Quixote, though others have found Charles Grandison impossibly perfect and consequently uninteresting. This attractive set is a copy of the eighth edition, showing that the novel could still captivate the public some forty years after its first appearance.

In Book IV, Laplace in effect summarized his own work in gravitational mechanics. Much of it consists of simplification of the prefatory sections to the published memoirs. The topics are perturbations in planetary motions, the shape of the earth, the attraction of spheroids and the rings of Saturn, motions of the tides and atmosphere, the moons of Jupiter, precession, and lunar motions. Only Book V contains material that Laplace had not written up in technical form or presupposed. It gives an overview of the history of astronomy and concludes with the speculation since called the nebular hypothesis and another on the nature of the universe in outer space." - DSB.

        The History of Sir Charles Grandison; in a Series of Letters

      T. Longman et al., London 1796 - Seven volumes, small octavo; each volume with an engraved frontispiece showing a scene from the narrative; a fine set in contemporary half roan, marbled paper sides, flat spines lettered in gilt. A very attractive set, from the library of the Marquess Conyngham at Slane Castle, Ireland, with his bookplate in each volume and signature at the top of each title page.First printed in 1753, Richardson's novel set out to create a perfect gentleman to counter-balance such characters as the caddish Mr. B- of Richardson's Pamela and the unheroic males in Fielding's Tom Jones. Jane Austen and George Eliot both thought highly of the book, and Ruskin ranked it with Don Quixote, though others have found Charles Grandison impossibly perfect and consequently uninteresting. This attractive set is a copy of the eighth edition, showing that the novel could still captivate the public some forty years after its first appearance. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        A new and impartial history of England,

      from the most early period of genuine historical evidence to the present important and alarming crisis; a period pregnant with the fate of empires, kingdoms, and states. Containing authentic, candid, and circumstantial accounts of all the memorable transactions, interesting events, and remarkable occurrences, recorded in the annals of Great Britain, with a comprehensive account of it's [sic] origin and progressive state, the many revolutions it has undergone, it's [sic] discoveries, conquests, acquisitions, battles, sieges, sea fights, and other memorable events. Also a concise view of the antient and modern constitution and political establishments of Britain, it's [sic] laws, institutions, parliaments, charters, grants, commerce, arts, sciences, &c. Likewise a chronological account of all the kings and queens of England: with an impartial display of their respective characters, whether distinguished for their wisdom in the cabinet, their military achievements in the field, their private crimes, or their public vices. Including an history of the American War and Revolution. To which are added, histories of the French Revolution, and the Revolution in Holland, &c. Together with every memorable transaction respecting Ireland and other countries. Interspersed with remarks, observations, and reflections: by which former errors are corrected, absurdities pointed out, fabulous narrations expunged, party prejudices removed, and what has hitherto appeared obscure and doubtful authenticated from the most respectable evidence."John Baxter (fl. 1794?-1816), silversmith and radical, assumed some prominence within the London Corresponding Society when he succeeded Margarot as chairman in 1794. He was arrested but not charged during the treason trials of the same year. Baxter was also a founder member, along with the bookseller Joseph Burks, of the Friends of Liberty, formerly division 16 of the LCS, which separated from the society in 1795. His New and impartial history of England from the most early period of genuine historical evidence to the present important and alarming crisis (1796) exhibited a politically articulate intellect. Details of his later career remain unclear: he was a known member of the United Irish movement, and in 1816 a satirical broadsheet, William Snow's The Polemic Fleet, listed him as a prominent member of the radical Spencean circle. Other sources suggest that the ?'Impregnable?' Baxter may by this date have been practising as a surgeon." [Michael T. Davis in ODBN]Baxter's New and impartial history shows him to be proud of his LCS and radical associations. He there describes himself as "Member of the London Corresponding Society, and one of the twelve indicted and acquitted of high treason at the Old Bailey" and acknowledges the fact that in writing his book he was "assisted by several gentlemen, distinguished friends to liberty and a parliamentary reform".

        Essais en vers et en prose

      Paris: Didot l'aîné, 1796. First edition. [iv], 157, [1] + 5 pp engraved music. 1 vols. 8vo. Full crimson morocco, raised bands, gilt spine, marbled endpapers, gilt turn-ins, a.e.g., by Simier. Upper joint a little rubbed, else fine. First edition. [iv], 157, [1] + 5 pp engraved music. 1 vols. 8vo. "Aux armes, citoyens" - the first Printing of 'La Marseillaise' in a Book. First edition, containing the first authorized appearance in book form of "La Marseillaise." The famous poem by Rouget de Lisle (1760-1836) appears at pp. 57-59 as "Le Chant des Combats, vulgairement L'Hyme des Marseillois. Aux Mânes de Sylvain Bailly. Premier Maire de Paris." La Marseillaise, now the French national anthem, and recognized worldwide as the quintessential call to revolution, "was originally written by a royalist officer as a patriotic song in support of the then French royal government which had declared war on April 20, 1792, against the Emperor Francis of Austria and King William II of Prussia. Subsequently, volunteers from Marseilles heard the song and joined in the storming in the Tuileries on Aug. 10, 1792. The song was thereafter quickly reprinted a great many times, usually under the title Marches des Marseillais or variant thereof" (Fuld). "La Marseillaise est un hymne d'éveil et de résistance qui a valu pour les résistances qui ont suivi, qui vaut pour celles que nécessite notre temps, et qui vaudra pour les résistances futures." - Edgar Morin Fuld notes that the earliest printings of the famous anthem appeared either in broadside form or in periodicals, and all are extremely rare; this printing, its first appearance in a book, was officially authorized by the author and is highly desirable. The copy, in a Simier binding, is particularly so: tipped-in is an Autograph Note signed by Rouget de Lisle, authorizing the payment of a debt "au citoyen de Buehr" (?), dated "le cinq thermidor, l'an 6" (i.e., July 24, 1797).
