        The Rural Economy of the West of England: including Devonshire; and Parts of Somersetshire, Dorsetshire, and Cornwall. Together with Minutes in Practice

      Double-page frontis. map. 1 p.l., xxxiv, 332 pp.; xxiv, 358, [3] pp. Two vols. 8vo, cont. mottled calf, floral fillet round sides, flat spines gilt, red & green morocco lettering pieces on spines. London: G. Nicol et al., 1796. First edition and a lovely set of the penultimate survey undertaken by Marshall of the farming practices of six different regions of England. "Modern agricultural historians have generally held that Marshall's works on English farming are superior to those of his rival, Arthur Young, as they are more systematically arranged and based on a more thorough knowledge of a district by personal residence there. Unlike Young, Marshall was cautious about experimentation, preferring rather to advocate the best practices approved by experienced farmers. On the other hand, he lacked Young's pithy and more readable style, and acquired fewer close contacts with the leading farming figures of the time. Marshall's career, indeed, suffered in some degree from his native bluntness and acid tongue, his pride, and his sensibility to slights. Nevertheless, from the independence of his views arose his remarkably early support for agricultural education, and his belief in the necessity of studying agriculture on a regional basis, both of which were ideas well before their time."-ODNB. Fine set. .

        Specimens of Arabian Poetry, from the earliest Time to the Extinction of the Khaliphat, with some Account of the Authors, by J. D. Carlyle, B.D. F.R.S.E. Chancellor of Carlisle, and Professor of Arabic in the University of Cambridge.

London; and Fletcher and Cooke, Oxford., Cambridge 1796 - Second edition (first 1795, of 3 which copies only are recorded in ESTC). The poems are printed in both English and Arabic and there is one engraved musical example of the work of Ishaq al-Mawsili ('Isaac Almousely' 767-850): 'Arab musician of Persian origin . a court musician . an upholder of the classical Arab music style, . [who] provided Arab music with a theoretical system based on local traditions.' (New Grove).Carlyle entered Christ's College, Cambridge in 1775, moving to Queens' College in 1778. 'During his residence at Cambridge he profited from the instructions of a native of Baghdad, who passed in Britain under the name David Zamio. As a result, Carlyle became so proficient in oriental languages that he was appointed professor of Arabic on the resignation of Dr Craven in 1795. In 1793 he had succeeded William Paley as chancellor of Carlisle. In 1792 he published Rerum Aegyptiacarum annales, translated from the Arabic of Yusuf ibn Taghri Birdi. Four years later there appeared his well-respected translation, Specimens of Arabian Poetry (which included biographical sketches of selected authors)' (Oxford DNB). In 1799 he was appointed chaplain to Lord Elgin's mission to Constantinople and travelled extensively through Asia Minor, Palestine, Greece, and Italy, collecting Greek and Syriac manuscripts for a proposed new version of the New Testament. 4to (232 × 180 mm), pp. [4], ix, [3], 71, [1], 1-48, [3], 49-180, text in Arabic and English, one page of engraved music, ornamental tailpieces throughout; lately rebound to style in calf, gilt.

Watermark incorporating a star within a shield. & & Moderately worn and soiled; some light foxing, heavier to title of first violin part. First violin part with old paper reinforcement to spine. Portion of imprint removed from title. . First Edition, later issue. Kinsky-Halm p. 12 (first issue). Weinhold/Dorfmüller p. 256. Hirsch IV, 241. For other issues see Hoboken 2, 27-30. In the first issue the opus number is printed as "IV" and the price "f2." In the present issue "4" appears in manuscript and there is no printed price. In addition, the number "11-1/2B" is printed at the foot of the first page of music in the "Violino Primo" part, most probably a printer's notation referring to the number of sheets required to print the part. & & Opus 4 is an original work, drawing on material from Beethoven's then-unpublished Octet for Winds (op. 103), "... with revisions sufficient to warrant calling it a new composition." Solomon: Beethoven, p. 102. "At some time before February 1791, probably when he was composing the C major Piano Sonata, Op. 2, no. 3, with its closely related opening theme, Beethoven re-cast the Octet (op. 103) as a String Quintet, Op. 4, and comparison of the two versions shows considerable light on his development as an instrumental composer during those four important formative years... The Quintet is by no means an arrangement of the Octet; unlike Mozart's parallel recasting of his Octet for the same combination of instruments (K.388) as a String Quintet (K.406), it is in many respects a new work. Everything has become more plastic; stiff formulae are softened; the texture is lightened in weight but enriched by polyphony and the devices of 'obbligato accompaniment'. The harmony, too, has become richer... Structurally everything is worked out in the Quintet on lines that are at the same time broader and subtler: the exposition of the first movement of the Quintet is 88 bars long as compared with the 69 of the Octet, the development 77 as compared with 56. The sixteen-bar periods that open minuet and trio of the Octet are expanded to 22 and 24 bars respectively in the Quintet, and the structure becomes much clearer, less fussy... All in all, it is hardly an exaggeration to say that the difference between Octet and Quintet represents the whole difference between the "al fresco," serenade music that was just going out of fashion and the new finely wrought quartet style of late Haydn with its 'openwork texture,' its so called 'durchbrochene Arbeit' ". Gerald Abraham in The New Oxford History of Music Vol. VIII: The Age of Beethoven 1790-1830, p. 260. & & The autograph of the work is untraced.

        The Bridge over the River Gallions, from the foot of Fort Matilda, Guadaloupe

      Willyams, London 1796 - The Reverend Cooper Willyams (1762-1816) was a topographer and artist, as well as minister and chaplain. The son of a British naval commander, he went to Cambridge, was ordained and contributed to "Topographical Miscellanies" before going to sea as Chaplain on the Boyne in 1793. England was at war with revolutionary France, and the Boyne participated in the West Indies' action of that war. In 1796, Willyams returned to London and published An Account of the Campaign in the West Indies. , which was illustrated with six drawings by Willyams, rendered in aquatint by Samuel Alken. This view on Guadeloupe was taken just outside Fort Matilda where Willyams served as chaplain. From his commanding position but minimizing the fortress as a geographical figure, Willyams gives a rich view of the lush hills and the rushing river below. Abbey, 677; Hough, The Beinecke Lesser Antilles Collection at Hamilton College , 486. Aquatint by Samuel Alken.

        Stapeliae Novae. Or, A Collection of Several New Species of that Genus Discovered in the Interior parts of Africa.

Also stamp reading ‘This Volume is not to be removed from the Room’ to verso of f.e.p. and ‘836’ written in old-hand to top right corner of title page. Overall contents in vg. to fine condition. Original half-calf binding with marbled boards rubbed in places. More recent spine with old spine label. Overall a very good copy of this very scarce work. The finest work on Stapelia ever produced. Francis Masson (1741-1805) was a Scottish botanist, gardener and Kew Garden’s first plant hunter. He first visited South Africa in 1772. Later, in 1785 he set sail again for the Cape of Good Hope, arriving in 1786. There he remained for nearly 10 years, returning to England in 1795. He then took up residence in Kensington and began working on ‘Stapeliae Novae’. Masson humbly noted ‘The figures were drawn in their natural climate, and though they have little to boast in point of art, they possibly exhibit the natural appearance of the plants they represent, better than figures made from subjects growing in exotic houses can do.’ Miss Mia Karsten, who wrote for the ‘Journal of South African Botany’ observed that Masson’s ‘Stapeliae Novae’ is ‘a work of great merit and value, both for the accurate, true to life drawings, from which the plates were made, and the detailed descriptions of the plants figured’.

        Bowles¿s New One-Sheet Map Of New England;

      London 1796 - Fine original wash color, slightly refreshed; light centerfold discoloration, else excellent condition. This attractive, separately published map provides a fascinating portrait of the borders of the former New England colonies at a time when some were in the process of becoming states. For example, this was one of the first maps to show Vermont as a state (admitted 1791). A note near the top printed border makes direct reference to its status: ¿This state extends Northward to the Degree of Latitude.¿ The Bowles is also one of the earliest collectible maps of New England to show town and city borders as well as the early road network of New England. In northern New England can be seen the names of owners of land grants and the ranges of their properties. Southern Maine and northern New Hampshire are called the ¿Eastern Part of Massachuests¿ on the map. An interesting inset plan of Boston and vicinity shows the military situation there just after the Battle of Bunker Hill. The plan¿s legend provides a detailed account not only of the locations of Boston¿s fortifications and gun emplacements but also their composition. ¿A battery of eight 24 Pounders on Corps Hill¿ reads one of the notes. ¿Bunkers Hill¿ appears in another. The map was based on a four-sheet work by Braddock Mead, published by Thomas Jefferys in 1755. However, the various Bowles editions of the map vary significantly enough from the Jefferys in their depiction of Vermont and New Hampshire as to suggest additional sources for the Bowles. For example, Bowles included several large lakes in these areas not found on the Jefferys. Tooley, R. V. Mapping of America, p. 70, no. 32f; cf. Benes, P. New England Prospect, pp. 15-16; McCorkle 765.1, state 4; Fite and Freeman, A Book of Old Maps, no. 60.

Vorliegend die Originalausgabe aus dem Jahr 1796 mit dem Titel in 8 Zeilen und nicht der unveränderte Nachdruck (reimpression contrefacon) mit demselben Jahr und übereinstimmender Kollation von 1812. Der Verlagsort und das Erscheinungsjahr sind durch zwei Striche getrennt (eine einzelne Wellenlinie ist bei der Ausgabe von 1812 zu finden). Die hübschen Kupfer in kräftigen Abdrucken. - Der Verfasser, der französische Offizier und Schriftsteller Pierre-Ambroise-Francois Choderlos de Laclos (1741-1803) wurde nach dem erfolgreichen, zugleich allerdings einen Skandal auslösenden Erscheinen des Buches auf einen wenig attraktiven Posten in La Rochelle versetzt.

      AMHERST, Jeffery (1717-1797), Montreal House, Kent UK (near Sevenoaks) 1796 - ASL contents:[Kent], July 17, 1796, and reads: . ìMr. Barrington Bradshaw who was a Captain in the second Regiment of Life Guards and who sold out of the Corps very contrary to my wishes, is at present setting out for the East Indies and has desired I would write a line in his favour. I comply with Mr. Bradshaws desire with great pleasure from the very good opinion I have of him in every respect, and from the confidence I entertain of his real merit, that he will prove himself deserving of any favour and protection you may honour him with. ì Small loss at left from removal of recipients name, toning, else VG., ASL, Amherst 1p. quarto, (22.5 cm x 18cm,) Montreal [House], docket names on reverse.Written one year before Amherst died on 3 August 1797. Barrington died in the East Indies in 1804, Amherst served as the nominal Crown Governor of Virginia from 1759-1768, though Francis Fauquier continued his role as acting governor from the previous term. During this period he also served as the first Governor General of British North America from 1760-1763. This office still exists as the Canadian monarch's representative in Canada. Amherst was raised to the peerage in 1776, as Baron Amherst of Holmesdale. During the American Revolutionary War he rejected a field command, since he had close relations with numerous personalities of the opposite side. He was promoted to Brigadier General in 1778, and became Commander-in-Chief of the Forces. He was replaced as Commander-in-Chief in February, 1782 by Henry Seymour Conway. Amherst again became Commander-in-Chief in 1793. He retired from that post in 1795, and was promoted to the rank of Field Marshal the following year. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

First Dublin Edition of a classic of North American travel. Hearne's journal holds an especially honoured place in the annals of Arctic exploration, and Hearne "will always be remembered as the first white man that ever gazed on the dreary expanse of the Arctic or Frozen Ocean from the northern shores of the Continent of America." (Rich) In 1769, he was sent by the Hudson's Bay Company to find a north-west passage from Hudson's Bay and to investigate Indian reports regarding the existence of copper deposits to the north. Hearne made two false starts, but on his third attempt, accompanied by the Chipewyan guide Matonabbie, he succeeded in crossing the Barren Lands and reached the Coppermine River, which he descended to the Arctic Coast. Hearne also discovered the Great Slave Lake and recorded valuable information regarding the natural history and Indian tribes of the region traversed. Shortly following his return, Hearne submitted his report to the Hudson's Bay Company, who kept it secret for some thirteen years. Its final publication, three years after his death, was due to the celebrated French navigator La Pérouse, who found Hearne's manuscript when he captured Fort Albany, Hudson's Bay, in 1781-82. When Fort Albany was subsequently surrendered to the British, La Pérouse stipulated, as one of the conditions of the surrender, that Hearne's manuscript be printed. Cox II p. 171. Field 677.

        Hollyhocks, Pineapples, Grapes, Melons, Plums, Pomegranate, Walnuts, Pears and Berries on a Marble Ledge with a Goldfinch

      - “Hollyhocks, Pineapples, Grapes, Melons, Plums, Pomegranate, Walnuts, Pears and Berries on a Marble Ledge with a Goldfinch” Watercolor and bodycolor on paper with inscription “J Van Os fecit: 1796” 20 1/2” x 26”, 26” x 31 1/2” framed under glass Jan van Os, Dutch painter and poet, founded the van Os dynasty of painters, which included his daughter Maria Margaretta van Os, a painter of flowers, and his grandson Pieter Frederick van Os, painter of landscapes. After moving to the Hague at an early age, van Os was apprenticed to Aert Schouman. He later studied with the most accomplished Dutch flower painter of the period, Jan van Huysum (1682-1749). Although van Os started his career with paintings of seascapes in the manner of Jan van de Cappelle, a genre that he continued to serve throughout his life, he was most famous for his still-lives of fruit and flowers in the manner of Jan van Huysum. His work was highly valued throughout Europe, exhibited in England, France and Germany. This large and extravagant watercolor is in the best tradition of Dutch still life painting, replete with trompe l’oeil effects and startlingly realistic details, including dewdrops, a fly, bird and butterfly. Heightening the work’s sense of drama is the finely rendered landscape in the background. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

Enc. en pasta española, tejuelo, florones, cortes pintados. Firma de anteriores poseedores en recto y verso de la portada. * Garcilaso de la Vega (1501-1536) es, con toda probabilidad, el mejor autor lírico del siglo XVI y uno de los poetas que, a pesar de su corta vida, más transformó y perfeccionó la poesía española. Presentamos una de las ediciones anotadas por Azara, de quien dice Palau que: "El diplomático José Nicolás de Azara, hombre de gusto refinado, examinó y comparó siete ediciones distintas y un antiguo manuscrito, dando a la estampa una nítida y primorosa edición que casi podemos calificar de definitiva". Nuestro ejemplar había pertenecido, como lo atestiguan las firmas de propiedad, a don Juan Francisco Adana y posteriormente a don Baltasar Mogrovejo y Ulzurrun. El primero fue autor de un volumen de poesías dedicadas a don Nicolás Centurión y Vera, marqués de La Lapilla, que se imprimió en Madrid en 1800 a cargo de la viuda e hijo de Marín. Adana ejerció también por esa época como secretario de la Real Sociedad Económica de La Rioja Castellana. En cuanto al segundo, lo encontramos como administrador en Castro Urdiales en 1835 (véase Estado de los empleados que componen la Real Hacienda de España en fin de junio de 1835. por Narciso Ferrer y Jou. Imp. José Palacios. Madrid, 1835) y como director de tercera y jefe de estación de primera de la sección de Material de Telégrafos a mediados del siglo XIX (véase El indicador de Madrid para el año de 1858 ó sea índice general de los principales habitantes. por Fernando Domingo López.

      London, Cooper & Graham, 1796. - (12 ll.), 408 pp.; (2 ll.), 454 pp. 2 volumes. 8°, contemporary mottled calf, spine gilt, slight wear at extremities. Occasional light browning and faint dampstains, but overall a handsome set. Signature of the Conde de Rio Maior Antonio on each half-title. 2 volumes. ---- FIRST EDITION. Herrenschwand, along with Quesnay, favors agriculture and a balance between production and consumption. With Adam Smith, he believes in the beneficial influence of high wages. In opposition to both of them, however, he considers foreign trade an evil. In @Du vrai gouvernement des peuples de la terre, London & Paris, 1801-2, he advocates his favorite remedy for economic ills: an increased number of independent consumers ("consommateurs indépendants par excellence") with an increased supply of coined precious metals.The author was a judge in the Swiss regiments in the French service, and in 1805 was an old man living in Paris. He has often been confused with his brother, Johann Friedrich, a Swiss physician who died in Bern in 1796; in fact, @BMC and @NUC both list this work under Johann Friedrich Herrenschwand's name. ---- Kress B.3197.

Wittlich die Edition, die kurzzeitig wohl durch die Napoleonische Besetzung Kurhessens zum Stillstand kam. Der sehr seltene, bibliographisch kaum nachweisbare siebte Band (1808) wurde dem Titel nach offenbar wieder von Kopp betreut; die letzte Lieferung (in getrennter Paginierung) endet mit dem Stichwort 'Rauch-Taback'. - Der Rechtswissenschafter und Paläograph Kopp (1762-1834) "trat nach vollendeter Studienzeit in Hessen-Kassel’sche Staatsdienste und erhielt zunächst eine Stelle als Assessor bei der Regierung in Kassel. 1788 wurde er zum Justizrath und Mitglied der Oberwegecommission, 1793 zum Regierungsrath, 1797 zum Geheimen Referendar und Landsecretär ernannt. 1802 übertrug ihm Landgraf Wilhelm IX. die Direction des Hofarchivs, 1803 wurde er mit dem Titel eines Geheimen Cabinetsraths ausgezeichnet [.] Im Januar 1804 schied er unter ehrender Anerkennung seiner Verdienste aus dem Staatsdienste aus, um sich nun ganz den Studien hinzugeben. Bereits mehrfach war er auf historisch-juristischem Gebiete schriftstellerisch thätig gewesen. Schon 1788 waren seine 'Beiträge zur Geschichte des Salzwerkes in den Soden bei Allendorf' erschienen, 1794 gab er das von seinem Vater begonnene Werk 'Ueber die Verfassung der heimlichen Gerichte in Westphalen' heraus. Das 'Handbuch zur Kenntniß der Hessen-Kassel’schen Landesverfassung und Rechte in alphabetischer Ordnung' ist nach Plan und Anlage sein Werk [.] In Anerkennung seiner litterarischen Verdienste ertheilte die juristische Facultät in Göttingen K. 1804 die Doctorwürde. Das für Kurhessen so verhängnißvolle Jahr 1806 veranlaßte ihn sich nach Baden zurückzuziehen.

      London - J. Edwards, and E. and S. Harding 1796 - An uncommon first English editionofLeonora by W. R. Spencer. Rebound in paper-covered boards. First English Edition. Uncommon. An exceptional copy of these exceptional illustrations. Illustrated by Lady Diana Beauclerc. William Robert Spencer, 1769 1834, was an English poet and wit. He was educated at Harrow School and Christ Church, University of Oxford but left without receiving a degree. Spencer's wit made him a popular member of society, and belonged to the Whig set of Charles James Fox and Sheridan. He was an accomplished writer of 'occasional' verse, which was warmly praised by Scott and Byron. He wrote graceful vers de socit, In 1796 he published an English version of Brger's Leonore, which was highly thought of by Scott, and others, and in 1802 he burlesqued German romance in his Urania, which was produced on the stage at Drury Lane. After a life of extravagance Spencer died in poverty in Paris. (DNB)Gottfried August Brger, 1747 1794, was a German poet. Originally a student of theology, Brger abandoned this for the study of jurisprudence. His lifestyle was considered wild, however he befriended men of literary tastes and by 1771 was already a popular poet. Brger became distract magistrate, but later gave up the post. He had a misadventure with farming, and instead established himself as where he established himself as Privatdozent. In 1787 he was given an honorary doctor of philosophy, from Gttingen University, and in 1789 was appointed extraordinary professor in that faculty. Brger's talent for popular poetry was very considerable and his ballads are among the finest in the German language. Lady Diana Beauclerk, 1734 1808, was an English noblewoman and artist. She was introduced to art at an early age and Joshua Reynolds, an artist, was a family friend. She married Frederick St John, 2nd Viscount Bolingbroke in 1757, and from 17621768 was lady of the bedchamber to Queen Charlotte. Her marriage was unhappy and Bolingbroke was notoriously unfaithful. In February of 1768 he petitioned for divorce on grounds of adultery. Within two days she married Topham Beauclerk of Old Windsor. Their circle of friends included Samuel Johnson, Georgiana Cavendish, Edward Gibbon, David Garrick, Charles Fox, James Boswell and Edmund Burke. Beauclerk illustrated a number of literary productions, including Horace Walpole's tragedy The Mysterious Mother, the English translation of Gottfried August Brger's Leonora and The Fables of John Dryden. Condition: The binding is tight and firm. There is almost no wear to the extremities. Internally the pages have some very slight browning, with the occasional spot. Overall thecondition is very good.

        Memorie Storiche Dell'Antichissimo Municipio Ora Terra Dell'Ariccia e Delle Sue Colonie Genzano, E Nemi, Dedicate a Sua Eccellenza Il Signor D. Agostino Chigi

      Presso I Lazzarini, Rome 1796 - Book. 4to - over 9¾ - 12" tall. xii, 502 pp. Full and rich history of Ariccia and surrounding towns on the outskirts of Rome, to the Southeast of the City by Castel Gandolfo (the Papal Summer Residence). Ariccia is one of the most ancient cities in Italy, dating to at least the ninth century B.C. This history concentrates mostly on the seventeenth and eighteenth century when it was ruled by the powerful Savelli Chigi family, which produced one pope, Alexander VII, and built a grand residence in the town that has been used many a time as a movie set, such as in Visconti's "Il Gattopardo" ("The Leopard"). While it is over two millenia since the town yielded to Rome's preeminence as a city, Ariccia continued to be the next most important city in Lazio for long stretches of history owing to its propitious location on the Via Appia, the first way station on the road between Rome and Naples, and its pleasant, salubrious climate, in contrast to malalial Rome, made it a favored resort for the powerful of Rome in prior centuries. This copy of the history, a model of municipal histories in its day, is very good. There is some light and occasional foxing, yet little that could be considered disconcerting. The exception would be the four places where a prior owner presses leaves, which left a residue and in one instance, may have created a tiny wormhole type of hole. However, the small amount of loss has no effect on readability where it occurred. The vellum has an attractive mottled, almost tiger striped design. Book is tight. Occasional light pencil notes, a word or two in each case, affecting a handful of pages. Still a very good copy. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
