The following were some of the prominent members of the family: Aaron F. Goldsmid: London merchant and founder of the Goldsmid family of England; born at Amsterdam; died June 3, 1782. He was the son of Benedict Goldsmid, a Hamburg merchant. In 1765 he left Holland with his family to settle in London, where he founded the firm of Aaron Goldsmid & Son, subsequently Goldsmid & Eliason. The firm of Aaron Goldsmid & Son experienced serious reverses through the failure of Clifford & Sayer, one of the principal houses in Holland. Hence only George, the eldest son, entered into partnership with his father. The other sons founded new businesses for themselves in which they amassed large fortunes. Goldsmid left four sons and four daughters. The second son, ASHER, was one of the founders of the firm Mocatta & Goldsmid, bullion-brokers to the Bank of England. Benjamin and Abraham were famous as financiers and philanthropists. Bibliography: Levy Alexander, Memoirs of Benjamin Goldsmid of Roehampton, 1808; James Picciotto, Sketches of Anglo-Jewish History.

        Correspondance amoureuse

      Rousel d'Epinal, Paris 1796 - Fabre d¿Eglantine Philippe François Nazaire (21 juillet 1750 ¿1 7 Germinal an II) ~ Correspondance amoureuse ~A Paris, Rousel d'Epinal, 1796. In-12, 2 vol, 3 T., maroquin rouge, xlvj, 215 pp., 222 pp., 214 pp., dorure aux petits fers ; non de celle qui est appliquée, d'un seul coup, à l'aide du balancier, sur le plat de maroquin, mais de celle qui, poussée à la main, au moyen de fers de minimes dimensions, exige de la part de l'ouvrier du goût dans la combinaison des motifs et de l'habileté dans l'application des fers. Très rare Une spécificité rare concernant cet ouvrage : Les exemplaires In-16 étant à l'origine minuscules, et trouvant mal leur place dans les bibliothèques vu leur taille, une reliure un peu plus grande (correspondant à une taille d'un format In-12) leur a été attibuée. Pour ce faire, chaque feuille a été agrandie, réenmargée, ce permettant d'éviter l'inconvénient majeur de ce format : une trop courte marge intérieure. Un travail de reliure énorme a été consacré à cet exemplaire : Chaque page a été détachée, et l'on a collé (au XVIIIème siècle) sur leur pourtour une autre fine feuille de papier vergé ; lesquelles ont été reliées ensemble. L'impression donnée, est celle d'un exemplaire à grandes marges sur papier de Hollande, ce qui permet une lecture plus aisée de l'ouvrage. Un travail tel sur un exemplaire est si fastidieux (plus de 600 feuilles) que cela ne se rencontre que très occasionnellement. La rareté de l'ouvrage et sa préciosité sont à l'origine de ce soin tout particulier. Une rare miniature d¿époque de Fabre d¿Eglantine probablement réalisée par lui-même et la seule connue est insérée dans le tome3. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Poems by Goldsmith and Parnell; together with The Chase. A Poem. By William Somerville.

      London W. Bulmer 1795; 1796 - Quarto. Two books bound together in one volume: xx, 76; xv, vii, 126pp. First editions thus. With a fore-edge painting by the "double-line" painter depicting the pastoral village of Lissoy where Oliver Goldsmith spent his youth, standing in for the pseudonymous town of Auburn in Goldsmith's poem, "The Deserted Village." The artist has written the title, "Lissoy ('Auburn' of 'The Deserted Village')," on the flyleaf in pen. The first book in the volume, Poems by Goldsmith and Parnell, is illustrated with four full-page, wood-engraved plates, by Thomas Bewick and one by John Bewick, and eight wood-engraved vignettes drawn by Robert Johnson or John Bewick, and engraved by Thomas Bewick. The second book, The Chase by William Somerville, has thirteen wood-engraved vignettes, including title pages, engraved by Thomas Bewick after designs by John Bewick. The Bewick brothers were the leaders of the development of the art of wood engraving at the end of the eighteenth century. In particular, Thomas Bewick extended the range of the art by creating "a new conception of the black and white picture." These books were splendidly printed by Bulmer at his Shakespeare Printing Office. In The Bewick Collector, Thomas Hugo describes Poems by Goldsmith and Parnell as "A magnificent result of the efforts of the wood engraver, type-founder, papermaker, and printer" and writes that The Chase "contains the best specimens of John Bewick's abilities as a designer." Bound in contemporary red straight-grain morocco with double-fillet border and a wide double-fillet frame with semi-circle insertions. This special presentation of the two books was done for Baronet Sir John James Smith, whose gilt armorial coat-of-arms is stamped in the center of the covers. With marbled endpapers and gilt dentelles to the inside edges of the covers. Housed in a matching chemise and slipcase. Binding shows some light rubbing and wear, slight bump to bottom edge of front cover, else a fine copy with a bright fore-edge painting. The bookplate of Sir John James Smith has been covered over by the armorial bookplate of Frederick S. Deck. (Tattersfield JB50 & JB8; Weber, pp. 95-96; Hugo 78 & 94; Ray, England, 50, [Goldsmith only]). [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Mors supérieur fendu. On connait l'origine de ce roman, plaisanterie assez cruelle faite par le groupe de de Mme d'Epinay et qui venait d'acueillir le marquis de Croismare. Ce dernier s'occupait d'un procès au sujet d'une jeune fille qui avait été placée dans un couvent contre son gré. Diderot fut chargé d'écrire les lettres de cette jeune fille au marquis et de lui faire croire à son évasion. Ces lettres constituèrent La religieuse. Le roman restera inachevé et Diderot n'a guère envie, par prudence, de le publier. En 1780, il modifie son manuscrit, le corrige. Il ne paraîtra qu'après sa mort, en 1796.

        The Lives of Dr John Donne; Sir Henry Wotton; Mr Richard Hooker; Mr George Herbert; and Dr Robert Sanderson

      York - J. Robson et al. 1796 - A first edition of this collection of biographies by Isaac Walton. Illustrated throughout with numerous plates. Including biographies of Dr John Donne, Sir Henry Wotton, Mr Richard Hooker, Mr George Herbert, and Dr Robert Sanderson. It was probably as an angler that Walton made the acquaintance of Sir Henry Wotton. Sir Henry Wotton dying in 1639, Walton undertook his life also; it was finished in 1642 and published in 1651. His life of Hooker was published in 1662, that of George Herbert in 1670 and that of Bishop Robert Sanderson in 1678. All these subjects were endeared to the biographer by a certain gentleness of disposition and cheerful piety; three of them at leastDonne, Wotton and Herbertwere anglers. Their lives were evidently written with loving pains, in the same leisurely fashion as his Angler, and like it are of value less as exact knowledge than as harmonious and complete pictures of character. An edition of Walton's Lives, by G Sampson, appeared in 1903. Condition: Rebound in half-morocco. Externally, very smart. Internally, firmly bound. Pages are bright and generally clean, with just some scattered light spotting and marginal tidemarks to the frontispiece. Overall: VERY GOOD INDEED. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        AUTOGRAPH MEMORANDUM REGARDING THE DETENTION OF THE SHIP HOLLAND ON AUGUST 7, 1796].

      [Np. ] 1796 - [4]pp. One bifolium sheet, each page measuring 9 1/2 x 7 1/4 inches. Old fold lines, some tanning and tearing to one interior fold. Else clean. Very good. John Trumbull's undated account of the British detention of the ship Holland of Philadelphia, captained by Joseph Dawson. Trumbull, during a period when he engaged in commercial trading in Europe, was travelling with his cargo of brandy from Rochefort, France to Gothenburg, Sweden aboard the Holland when she was stopped and boarded by the British fourteen-gun brig-sloop Suffisante, under the command of Captain Nicholas Tomlinson. Captain Tomlinson demanded to see the Holland's papers and then went about detaining most of the ship's crew aboard his own vessel. Trumbull, highly outraged at the delay of his cargo and the imposition upon his fellow countrymen, wrote the following note, included in the memorandum, to Captain Tomlinson: "To Captain Tomlinson of the Armed Brig the Suffisante in the Service of his Britannic Majesty. Colonel Trumbull, late Secretary to Mr. Jay, who negotiated the present Treaty between Great Britain and America, and Owner of the Cargo of the Ship Holland, presents his Compliments to Captn Tomlinson; has the Pleasure to send him a Copy of the Treaty abovenamed; and begs Captain Tomlinson to Reflect whether consitantly [sic] with the Articles which Mr. T has marked, it is Justifiable to divert the Holland from her Course, the ship being American built, the Property of Mr. Johnson, the American Consul in London, and the Cargo the property of Col. Trumbull, who also is a well-known American. If Captn. Tomlinson persists in taking the ship out out of her Course, Col. Trumbull particularly protests against his removing either Capt. Dawson or any of the People from on board. But, Captain Tomlinson should be very secure that He is Justified by his Instructions on this occasion, as either He or his Instructors must answer for the consequences of an Act against which Colonel Trumbull hereby formally protests, as a direct violation of the Treaty, & good Harmony which subsist between the United States of America and Great Britain." Shortly thereafter, Captain Dawson and his crew were returned to the Holland and Captain Tomlinson even came aboard and "behaved very civilly, drank a glass of claret with us, and returned on board his Brig." There is no indication of the intended audience for this document. It has the appearance of a draft, as there are several bits crossed out or amended. It is possible that this episode was recorded for inclusion in Trumbull's autobiography, though it does not appear in that volume, or for possible diplomatic use later. Hailed as the official painter of the Revolution, Trumbull studied painting and art in England and France. The youngest son of the governor of Connecticut, the elder John Trumbull very much wanted his son to go into law. Trumbull did study the law, but gladly joined the fight against the British when the Revolution broke out. He eventually served as Washington's second aide-de- campe, having been brought to the General's attention through some very accurate drawings he had made of British gun emplacements. He rose to the rank of colonel as a deputy adjutant- general, but resigned the commission he finally received because it was dated three months late, a slight his honor could not tolerate. He refused to return to the law, finding it quite distasteful, and chose instead to pursue his true passion, art, against his family's wishes. Though he was never particularly wealthy in this pursuit, he did achieve a certain amount of success in his own lifetime. Among his most famous works are those commissioned in 1817 by Congress to adorn the Capitol building: "The Surrender of General Burgoyne at Saratoga," "The Surrender of General Cornwallis at Yorktown," "The Declaration of Independence," and "The Resignation of General Washington."

        Op. 4]. Grand Quintetto per due Violini, due Viole, e Violoncello. [Set of parts]

      [Artaria e] Comp. [PN] 627 [after 1796], Vienne - 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. Folio. Sewn. [1] (title), 2-11, [i] (blank); 8, [ii] (blank); 7, [i] (blank); 7, [i] (blank), 7, [i] (blank) pp. Engraved. Watermark incorporating a star within a shield.

A SPLENDID EIGHTEENTH-CENTURY PAINTING FROM THE CALCUTTA SCHOOL With inscription 'Phasianus impejanus Indian? 632- Illus/Emperor Pheasant, gen. lynn. sup 1200...pl. 14...No. 68' (lower center) Paper size: 25 1/2" x 18 1/8" Pen and Ink with watercolor Provenance: George Annesley, 9th Viscount Valentia (1770-1844); Stuart Cary Welch By the late 18th century, many Mughal-trained painters in India were looking to the emerging British ruling class for patronage. The products of the Calcutta School in India were often albums of flora, fauna, and other exotic sights of India, made to be taken back to Britain. Of the varied subjects, bird studies such as this depiction of a Himalayan Monal, may be deemed a classic type. Paintings of birds, animals, and flowers had been an important genre in Indian art since the time of the Mughal emperor Jahangir (1605-27), and the continuation of such subjects under British patronage was a natural extension of that established tradition, although the results were often quite different stylistically. .

        Selling Rabbits

      Published by William Ward, London 1796 - A beautiful colour mezzotint by William Ward after his brother James's painting James Ward was one of the most noted artists of his day, his individual style and superior skill distinguished him from his contemporaries, and his outstanding work influenced the development of British art. Considered to be one of the most important animal painters of his generation, Ward also produced portraits, landscapes, genre and history paintings. He began his career as an engraver, studying under his brother William, who later went on to engrave many of his paintings. The images produced from the pairing of William and James Ward epitomize the best of English art, their fine technical skill and inspired artistic imagination combine to create enduring pictures that speak of the taste and beauty of the age. The work of James Ward is worthy of history's praise; it influenced the art of Delacroix and Géricault, and changed the face of British painting. C.R. Grundy James Ward p.72, no.108; Beckett, The Life and Work of James Ward p. 211. Colour printed mezzotint with added hand colour. In good condition with the exception of some expert repairs to plate mark.

        A Letter to George Washington, President of the United States: Containing Strictures of his Address of the Seventeenth of September 1796, Notifying His Relinquishment of the Presidential Office. By Jasper Dwight of Vermont.

      Philadelphia: Printed for the Author, 1796. Pamphlet, 8vo, removed, 48 pp. Spine wrapped in cloth tape serving as a spine, some soiling and aging, title chipped in lower corner, but not affecting text, a couple of minor chips and folds to other pages, William Duane's name is written on title along with a few other notes; else very good. William Duane (1760-1835) is generally considered the author of this tract. He was born near Lake Champlain, New York, and would become one of the most prominent journalists of his time. After living aboard for a number of years he returned to Philadelphia, and would eventually become the editor of the Aurora. He was a gifted journalist with some very strong views, which sometimes got him into trouble. His politics actually got him indicted under the Sedition Law in 1799. Duane was very much pro Jefferson, but he didn't seem to have much use for other politicians of his day. The present work is strongly anti Washington. According to Sabin this pamphlet is "one of the most violent invectives against Washington, and is far more abusive than the famous letter of Thomas Paine." Sabin 20989. Howes D515. Evans 31315.

        Letters Written During A Short Residence in Sweden, Norway, and Denmark

      First Edition of Wollstonecraft\'s Scandinavian LettersWOLLSTONECRAFT, Mary. Letters Written During A Short Residence in Sweden, Norway, and Denmark. London: Printed for J. Johnson, 1796.First edition. Octavo (7 15/16 x 4 7/8 inches; 201 x 124 mm.). [4], 262, [4] pp.Contemporary half calf over marbled boards. Spine stamped and lettered in gilt. Edges dyed brown. Corners rubbed. Front outer hinge, cracked but firm. Head of the tail a bit chipped. Previous owner\'s old ink signature on front free endpaper and lightly on title-page. Some light browning to leaves. Overall a very good copy.This is the original edition of narratives that comprise the first published account in English of a woman travelling on business. The work also had a profound affect on the personal life of its author, and it was well received by its contemporary reading audience. Tomalin reports that \"when Johnson published the Letters, they found an enthusiastic public, not least among young poets.\" The book describes a journey taken through Scandinavia by Wollstonecraft (1759-97) accompanied by her infant daughter Fanny and a nurse. The landscapes, towns, and inns generally made a pleasant impression on the author, as did the people, particularly the humble classes, and she is skilled at paining a picture of the scenes through which she passed.As one who promoted social reforms in England, Wollstonecraft describes the society and customs of the Scandinavians as in general more progressive than in her homeland. She also touches on government and the military, which she finds a somewhat oppressive presence. She was travelling to promote the business interests of the American lover she had met in Paris, Fanny\'s, Filbert Imlay. Wollstonecraft was shattered by the collapse of the relationship, but this book helped her find a new love, for the radical William Godwin declared that \"if ever there was a book calculated to make a man in love with its author, this appears to be the book.\" Wollstonecraft and Godwin married in 1797.Windle A7a.HBS 66291.$1,250

An excellent copy.ìCondillac [1714-1780] entered into intellectual life at just the juncture when...French thought was, with some little affectation, disowning the legacy of Descartes and adopting that of Newton and Locke. In consequence of the junction between physics and the empiricist account of the mind, epistemology and psychology became virtually the same subject in the French Enlightenment. Condillac contributed to the synthesis more decisively than did any other writer. The development of Condillacís thought is recorded in a very coherent way in his main works: Líessai sur líorigine des connaisances humaines (1746); Trait?? des syst??mes (1749); Trait?? des sensations (1754); Trait?? des animaux (1755); La logique (1780); and La langue des calculs, which was left incomplete and published posthumouslyî (D.S.B.).This compact edition of selected works contains Grammaire, Art dí??crire, Dissertation sur líharmonie du style, Art de raisonner, and Art de penser, which had formed part of the Cours díetude. The second volume ends with works not included in the Cours díetude: Logique and Trait?? des animaux, which the anonymous writer of the preface says have been edited with great care, while the orthography adopted in this edition is that of Condillac himself.HBS 66819.$2,500
