        The History of America

      London: A. Strahan, and T. Cadell; and E Balfour, Edinburgh,, 1796. The Seventh Edition. [together with;] The History of America. Books IX and X. Containing the History of Virginia, to the Year 1688; and the History of New England, to the Year 1652. 4 volumes octavo (207 × 126 mm). Contemporary tree calf, flat spines, red morocco titling-pieces, green roundel numbering-pieces, spines gilt in compartments with palm and olive branch corner-pieces and central tool of an eight-pointed star roundel, edges sprinkled blue. 4 folding maps by Thomas Kitchin, one folding plate, half-titles present in each. Contemporary ownership inscription of Francis Way to all title pages. A little rubbed on the spines and at the edges, some foxing, but a very nice set in an attractive contemporary binding. First published in 1777, this edition with the first edition of the additional volume containing the previously unpublished early history of British America. "Most highly regarded secondary source of its time" (Howes). Roberston's work "helped establish historical writing as one of the foremost literary genres of Enlightenment Scotland. The dignity of his style brought equal dignity to the subject matter, and in no small measure Robertson's works helped pave the way for the dominance of history that was to follow in the nineteenth century. Although in recent years both Hume and Gibbon have often been considered greater historians in terms of intellectual insight and historical comprehension, Robertson's contemporaries generally had no hesitation about making him their equal, if not superior" (ODNB). Regarded as Robertson's "most interesting, original, and even Romantic work," it was an immediate success, particularly so "on the continent, where it was considered Robertson's masterpiece (in Suard's translation), and went through nine editions between 1777 and 1780."

        Jeffery's Edition of the Castle of Otranto, a Gothic Story

      London: printed by Cooper and Graham and sold by the Publisher [Edward Jeffery],, 1796. Translated by William Marshall, Gent. from the Original Italian of Onuphrio Muralto, Canon of the Church of St. Nicholas at Otranto. A New Edition. Octavo (214 × 133 mm). Contemporary green quarter roan, marbled boards. Hand-coloured frontispiece within gilt-rolled border and 6 similar plates. Rubbed, corners worn, some foxing and browning throughout as usual, overall a very good copy. First edition thus, a rather pretty edition which employs copies of the plates first issued by Harding in 1793; "Six plates illustrative of the Castle of Otranto were published by E. & S. Harding in July 1793 to accompany either the Bodoni or the small octavo edition; they were drawn by 'a lady' (Miss Anne Mellicent Clarke) and engraved by Birrell" (Hazen). They are better known from Sivrac's 1795 Italian edition, and these copies are taken from that issue, the letterpress imprint details being, perhaps deliberately, obscured by the gilt borders. The frontispiece, engraved by Thomas Medland from a drawing by Joino, is also from Sivrac's edition.

        Opere di Niccolò Machiavelli cittadino e segretario fiorentino.

      S. n. 1796 - [Florence], s. n., 1796-1799. 8 vol. in 8 de CLXXXIV-276pp., 452pp., 325pp. (avec erreur de numérotation), 385pp. (avec une planche dépliante hors texte), 419pp., 364pp., 369pp., XIX-323pp., reliures en plein vélin rigide postérieure, probablement du milieu du XIXème siècle, dos à 5 nerfs ornés de fleurons ronds dorés, pièces de titre et de tomaison de maroquin ocre surlignées et soulignées de roulettes dorées et encadrées d'un filet doré, titre et tomaison dorés, frontispice du tome I. orné d'un portrait de l'auteur, un chiffre et une lettre avec parfois 2 ou 3 bâtonnets manuscrits à l'encre noire dans l'angle supérieur externe de chaque contreplat, quelques légères mouillures sur les premiers contreplats de certains volumes sans gravité; les contreplats restant propres, grandes marges, intérieur frais et pur, tranches rouges, bon et bel exemplaire. Cette édition florentine qui reprend celle de Philadelphie (Livourne) contient l'édition originale de ''Commedia in versi senza titolo'' présent dans le tome VII, ainsi que les textes ''Descrizione della peste di Firenze dell'anno 1527'' et ''Capitoli per una bizzarra compagnia''. Nicolas Machiavel naquit à Florence en 1469 dans une famille noble, fils de Bernardo Machiavelli trésorier pontifical et docteur en Droit, et de Bartolomea de' Neri. Très jeune il étudia avec passion les historiens antiques, en particulier Tite-Live. Après la mort de Savonarole, brûlé sur la place de la Seigneurie en 1498, dont il fut un fervent opposant, il fut nommé secrétaire des Dieci, la seconde chancellerie. Il resta 14 ans à ce poste, ayant diverses missions diplomatiques en Italie, en France, et auprès de la cour impériale en Autriche. Durant cette période, il écrivit différents textes, tout d'abord ''Les relations diplomatiques" ainsi que différents rapports: "Rapport sur les choses de l'Allemagne" (1508-1512) et ''Rapports sur les choses de la France" en 1510. En 1503 il fut envoyé comme ambassadeur auprès de Cesare Borgia, il put ainsi assister à la cruauté et à la ruse avec laquelle ce dernier parvenait à se débarrasser de tous ses adversaires, opposants et ennemis. Il se lia d'amitié avec Piero Soderini qui fut nommé gonfalonier de Florence. C'est à cette époque qu'il s’occupa de l'armée florentine, la faisant passer d'un corps de mercenaires à une structure composée de conscrits émanant des citoyens de la ville. En 1512, suite au retour des Médicis au pouvoir, accusé d’avoir participé à la conjuration fomentée par Pier Paolo Boscoli, il fut arreté, torturé et emprisonné. Il se retira dans la campagne Toscane. En 1512, il commença à composer son oeuvre qui est considérée comme la plus importante: ''Discorsi sopra la prima Deca di Tito Livio" publiée posthume à Rome en 1531 par l'éditeur Antonio Blado. Il interrompit l'écriture sur la ''Décade'' pour écrire son oeuvre la plus connue ''Le Prince" qui fut publiée en 1513. A cette date il traduisit l'une des commédies de Térence ''Andria". En 1520 fut représentée son oeuvre théâtrale ''La Mandragola'', écrite en 1518. En 1521 il publia chez l'imprimeur Giunti à Florence ''L'arte della guerra", puis à la demande du Cardinal Jules de Médicis, il rédigea entre 1520 et 1526, les annales diplomatiques de Florence: ''Historie Fiorentine'', publiées par Antonio Blado en 1532. Enfin fut publiée à Florence en 1537 son autre oeuvre théâtrale importante "Clitia". Il fut très lié à Francesco Guicciardini qu'il avait connu à Carpi lorsque ce dernier était alors gouverneur de Modène. Machiavel décéda en 1527. Il fut le premier à élaborer L'Art de l'Etat comme une discipline propre, dotée de principes et de règles pas nécessairement liés à des valeurs éthiques et morales. Avec la lecture et l'étude des anciens, en actualisant les messages, il analyse sur un modèle empirique les passions qui sont à la base de l'action humaine et donc de l'Histoire. Malgré une condamnation de toutes ses oeuvres et une mise à l'index, ces dernières eurent une immense influence à [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        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.

      Pub. London George Nicol. 1796 - pp.24 with a further 41 hand-coloured copper engraved plates. Light browning and spotting to plates. Several bookplates and library stamps to front paste-down. 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’.

The Universal Accountant was first published in 1763-65 and ran to five editions to 1787 before this Dublin printing. All editions appear to be very rare.

        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.

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]
