        A Voyage to New South Wales ; with a Description of the Country; The Manners, Customs, Religion, &c. of the Natives, in the Vicinity of Botany Bay. By George Barrington, now Superintendent of the Convicts at Paramatta [sic]

      Philadelphia: Printed by Thomas Dobson, 1796. Duodecimo, with 2-pp. publisher's advertisements; the text embrowned and some scattered staining but a very good unsophisticated copy, with the half-title, in original American mottled sheep, unlettered spine ruled in gilt; front hinge starting, head of spine restored. The rare American Barrington. Only the second work on Australia to be published in America. This first American edition of Barrington's Voyage, in appealing and characteristic contemporary condition, is very rare; two copies are recorded at the State Library of New South Wales (Mitchell and Dixson), while the National Library has Ferguson's copy and a fourth is to be found at Monash University. It is ironic that an essentially fraudulent work should prove to be a fundamental source for eighteenth-century American knowledge of the new settlement at Port Jackson. Eighteenth-century American voyage publications are generally acknowledged as rare: this is particularly interesting as one of only two accounts of New South Wales printed in the United States by 1800. The Philadelphia Barrington was preceded only by the exceptionally rare 1789 New York edition of Tench, of which only two copies are known, at the Mitchell and the National Library.

        Man As He Is: A Novel in Four Volumes

      London: Printed for William Lane, 1796. 2nd Edition. Cloth Bound. Ex-Library/No Jacket. 4 vols. vi, 252, 210, 242, 240 p. 16 cm. Second edition. Rebound in navy cloth. Discreet library markings from Harvard University Library. Harvard crest on spine. Donation bookplate stamped released, with original spine labels. Vol. 2: small hole p. 149, tear in edge of p. 155, 169. Minor spots. Bage's novels may not interest strongly by their plot, but there is a distinct originality about them. They were chiefly intended to inculcate certain political and philosophical opinions. He was deeply impressed by the French revolution, and the effects of the new principles are clearly traceable in his works. Considered altogether apart from their moral and social bearings, the novels of Bage display an unquestionable power in drawing and developing character, while their style is always entertaining and frequently incisive. This title is considered his best work.

        Catalogus Bibliothecae Historico-Naturalis Josephi Banks

      London: W. Bulmer, 1796-, 1800. Five volumes bound in four, octavo, extra-illustrated with two portraits of Banks, manuscript dedication to Baron Cobres on front endpaper of volume IV; a good set in old half calf with marbled boards, volume II not quite matching but with similarly marbled boards, sympathetically rebacked. Privately issued catalogue of Banks' library. Rare: the complete private library catalogue of Sir Joseph Banks, with a fascinating provenance. Only 250 copies were printed of this wonderful work, and sets are not often seen for sale, while complete sets are distinctly rare since the fifth volume is more often absent. The few examples that have come onto the market seem almost without exception to have had interesting associations, tending to confirm the supposition that the book was never really published for conventional public sale, being intended rather for presentation among Banks' wide and influential coterie. This set is no exception, with a manuscript note in a secretarial hand to the front endpaper of volume IV noting "Baron Cobres from Sir Joseph Banks". This is particularly appealing, as the natural history collection of the Baron Joseph Paul von Cobres was one of the most significant of its time. Indeed, the annotated catalogue of his collection, the Deliciae Cobresianae of 1782, is considered to be one of the three great private collection catalogues of the eighteenth century, together with the Bibliotheca Riviniana (1727) of the German botanist August Quirinus Rivinus, and this catalogue of Banks' library. It comes as no surprise to find that the Deliciae Cobresianae is listed in Banks' library. Just as intriguingly, a more recent note to the endpaper of the first volume also explains this set's unusual provenance, commenting that four of the volumes present here (I, III, IV, & V) were purchased from a descendant of James Sowerby; volume II, later added, bears the ownership inscription of the chemist W.T. Brande and the stamp of the Glasgow Philosophical Society. Sowerby was an influential natural history artist, perhaps best known to an Australian audience for his collaboration with James Edward Smith on A Specimen of the Botany of New Holland of 1793, the first separately published book on Australian botany. Sowerby also became heavily involved with Sir Joseph Banks. Banks' superb library was ultimately bequeathed to the British Museum. Many voyage writers of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, Dalrymple and Burney among them, acknowledged the debt that they owed to Banks' library and to his generosity in making his books and manuscripts available to them. The catalogue was compiled by Jonas Dryander, the Swedish botanist who succeeded Solander as Banks' librarian in 1782 and later became librarian to the Royal Society and a founder fellow and first librarian of the Linnean Society. Taylor notes that it approaches a 'virtually complete bibliography of eighteenth-century writings on natural history'. The first volume (1798) describes Banks' general books, including voyages and travels, the second (1796) his zoological books, the third (1797) his botanical books, and the fourth (1799) those relating to mineralogy. The fifth volume (1800), which is lacking in three of the nine sets located by Taylor, comprises a supplement and an author index.

        Viaggi dalla China alla costa Nord-Ovest d'America fatti negli anni 1788 e 1789

      Florence: Giovacchino Pagani, 1796. Four volumes octavo, with 18 plates, maps and charts, some of them folding; original Italian half blue-green roan and glazed boards, flat spines banded and lettered in gilt; a very attractive set. Italian version. First Italian version, one of two editions published in the same year (the other was published in Naples). This attractive copy, once in the library of the Pacific Union Club in San Francisco, was sold by Warren Howell in the 1970s. The charming engravings here, redone for this edition by a Florentine artist, include two of Hawaiian subjects and the text describes two important, early visits to the islands in 1787 and 1788. 'This is one of the early and fundamental books on the Northwest coast of America in general and on Alaska in particular. In addition to his voyages from China to America in 1788 and 1789, which form the principal part of this work, Captain Meares describes his earlier voyage to the Northwest coast from Bengal, which took place in 1786 and 1787… This work, profusely illustrated and with many valuable historical documents appended to the main narrative, is of great importance in the study of early trading in furs originating on the Northwest coast and of a serious conflict between the English and the Spaniards in this connection…' (Lada-Mocarski, of the English edition). 'John Meares was sent out in 1796 from Calcutta, by a group of merchants, to enter into the fur trade of the Northwest coast of America. Establishing himself at Nootka Sound and flying the British flag, he built the first vessel to be launched in northern waters, made important discoveries, and explored the Strait of Juan de Fuca. The discoveries by Meares were part of the basis for the claim of Great Britain to Oregon. Competition with the Spanish almost caused war between the two countries and the struggle became known as the Nootka controversy. The Spanish seizure of his ships led to the convention by which the Spanish claims to any northern territory were finally disallowed. This important narrative gives a very full account of the Indian nations of Northwest America, describing their villages, languages, manners and customs. It also contains a separate account of the voyage of the Iphigenia, commanded by Captain William Douglas, which visited the Sandwich Islands and Nootka Sound…' (Hill).

The book is most prized, however, for its accounts of the Revolution by high-ranking participants, and for the excellent folding maps, including the battles of Yorktown, Breeds [i.e. Bunker] Hill, Savannah, Charleston, Saratoga, White Plains, and Quebec. There is also a single-page view of Quebec. The outstanding map of Yorktown was drawn by the talented Benjamin Tanner, and shows the position of the American and French forces. The map of the siege of Savannah is by Charles B.J.F. Saint- Mémin, an artist best known for his profile portraits. This copy adds a map of the United States by Tanner. Sabin (50185) is incorrect in calling for only six maps in the first volume and 314pp. in the second. These errors are corrected in his entry 82379, which describes the two portraits, the view, and the folding maps, but also adds a portrait of Nathaniel Greene, which was apparently not issued with the work. A valuable narrative and cartographic history of the Revolution, and rarely found with all the maps. EVANS 30807, 32492. ESTC P3454. SABIN 50185, 82379. CHURCH 1271. HOWES S581 (note).

Clean, unmarked pages with minimal tanning. Foxing to pages. <br> Emer de Vattel was a noted Swiss philosopher and legal theorist. Vattel made important foundational contributions to modern international law and political philosophy. â&#128;&#156;To begin with, he applied a strictly interstate perspective in which the law of nations is specifically the law governing relations between States. Vattel recognized the existence of a duality of norms governing the conduct of sovereign States: the norms imposed by natural law and those imposed by the positive law of nations. He also theorized about a law of nations that is both â&#128;&#152;liberal and pluralistâ&#128;&#153;, and which is very much in line with the state of European society at the time of the Enlightenment.â&#128;&#157; Emmanuelle Jouannet, The Oxford Handbook of the History of International Law .<br> Vattelâ&#128;&#153;s impact can be seen on the framers of the American constitution. Jefferson notably read and admired Vattelâ&#128;&#153;s work. An important work in legal history. <br><br> MacDonnell, The Great Jurists of the World 479, 504.

        Haydeblümchen. 2 Bl., 220 S. Mit gestoch. Titel mit Vignette und gefalt. Notentafel. Marmor. Pappbd im Stil d. Z. mit Rückenschild.

      Hamburg, Mutzenbecher, (1796).. . Seltene erste Ausgabe. Enthält neben zwei melodramatischen, nach französischen Vorlagen bearbeiteten Liebesgeschichten ('Der Felsen der verzweifelten Liebe' - dazu auch die Titevignette - und 'Liebe über das Grab') die 'Papiere eines Terroristen', die poetisierte Darstellung der Jakobinerverfolgung nach dem Thermidor und die tendenzielle Entschuldigung zumindest von einigen Jakobinern. Der wichtigste Beitrag ist 'Die Wächter der Burg Zion', eine polemische Auseinandersetzung mit obskurantischer Publizistik, besonders die des Wiener Denunzianten L. A. Hoffmann und dessen maßlosen reaktionären Vorwürfen in seiner 'Wiener Zeitschrift' gegen die "Tollwuth der herrschenden Aufklärungsbarbarei und ihrer falschen Apostel". Hoffmann verstieg sich zu der Behauptung, die Illuminaten, angeführt von Knigge und Weishaupt, seien die Verursacher der Französischen Revolution und damit für alle daraus resultierenden Übel verantwortlich. Knigge beantwortete Hoffmanns gefährliche Anschuldigungen mit seiner Satire 'Des seligen Herrn Etatsraths Samuel Conrad von Schaafskopf hinterlassene Papiere'. Weit wirkungsvoller spottete hier Rebmann mit seinen 'Wächtern', in denen er Hoffmanns Hass auf die Illuminaten illustriert. "Bey diesen Herren ist es einmal Sitte, durch Denunziation zu antworten, wenn man sie entlarvt, und ich bin stolz darauf, daß ihr Gift, welches sie gegen so viele edle Männer versprüzen, auch gegen mich versprüzt wird ... Man sollte freilich glauben, daß die Versuche der deutschen Obskuranten durch Verachtung hinlänglich beantwortet seyn." Mit der Ankündigung der Zeitschrift 'Die Schildwache'. - Gebrauchsspuren, unterschiedlich fleckig. Am Schluss schwacher Wasserrand in der oberen Ecke. - Kawa 24.
