        The American Atlas

      New York: Published by John Reid, 1796. Folio. (16 x 10 1/4 inches). Mounted on guards throughout, letterpress title within decorative border of typographic ornaments, 21 engraved maps and plan on 20 leaves (2 folding, 17 double-page and 2 single-page maps printed on one double-page sheet). [with:] William WINTERBOTHAM. An Historical, Geographical, Commercial, and Philosophical View of the United States of America, and of the European settlements in America and the West Indies. New York: printed by Tiebout and O'Brien, for John Reid, [1795-]1796. 4 volumes, octavo (8 3/8 x 5 1/4 inches). 7pp. list of subscribers at the back of vol.IV. 25 engraved plates (of 26, comprising 4 engraved portrait frontispieces, and 21 engraved plates), extra-illustrated with provisional titles to vol.I and II bound at the rear of the respective volumes. ("Plan of Washington" mentioned in the plate list as being required opposite p.67 here bound in the atlas). Atlas: bound to style in half speckled calf over contemporary marbled paper covered boards, original paper label affixed to the upper cover, flat spine in seven compartments divided by gilt double fillets, red morocco lettering piece in the second compartment. Text: contemporary tree sheep, neatly rebacked to style uniform to the atlas, original red morocco labels. A very fine copy of this rare and important atlas, here including the folding plan of Washington not found in most copies, and with the first American edition of the associated text. by William Winterbotham. The atlas is among the earliest to be published in America and is the first to contain a plan of Washington, D.C. The Reid atlas is one of the rarest and most interesting of American atlases, preceded only by the 1795 Carey and the Clark atlases as the earliest United States atlases. It includes detailed engraved maps of North and South America, and the United States; and individual maps of New Hampshire, Maine, Massachusetts, Vermont, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware and Maryland, Virginia, Kentucky, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Tennessee, and the West Indies. The continent maps, the general map of the United States, and those of Kentucky and Washington are after maps appearing in London editions of Winterbotham; the remaining maps are original to this work. Although not found in all copies, the atlas is noted for containing an exceptional plan of Washington, D.C. which follows the famed Ellicott plan of 1792: the present copy includes this plan, here in its first state dated 1795, with the publishers listed on the plate as Reid, L. Wayland and C. Smith. The text by Winterbotham is the first American edition of what is a key early history of the United States. Winterbotham was prosecuted for sedition for two sermons he preached in 1792. He was found guilty and sentenced to two years' imprisonment and wrote the present work while serving time in Newgate Prison. It treats the discovery and early settlement of America, the American Revolution, each of the states of the Northeast and South, the Northwest Territory, Canada, and settlements in South America and the West Indies. Most of the handsome plates illustrate birds, quadrupeds, and reptiles found in the West Indies. The color plate represents the tobacco plant (third volume, opposite page 427) and is the first color plate regularly published in an American book, here present in a very good impression. Reid's atlas and Winterbotham's text, intended as a set, are now rarely found together.

        Spiele zur Uebung und Erholung des Körpers und Geistes, für die Jugend, ihre Erzieher und alle Freunde unschuldiger Jugendfreuden

      Schnepfenthal, Buchhandlung der Erziehungsanstalt, 1796.. Engraved allegorical frontispiece, 4 engraved folding plates on full aprons. pp. XVI, 492, 2 lvs. Contemporary boards. 18 x 11,5 cm. First edition. - Gutsmuths was a pioneer of physical education and gymnastics. In this compendium of games and sports he describes 15 different types of ballgame, including Thorball, Schnurball, Fangball, and Prellball. Most importantly he devotes nearly seven pages to "englische Base-ball", the forerunner to American baseball played from at least 1750 by the schoolchildren of Britain. The title of this German work translates as ``Games for the Exercise and Recreation of Body and Spirit for Youth`` and includes a descriptions of various games and sports, including cricket, badminton, golf, croquet, chess, etc. The most notable, however, appears on pages 78-85 under the heading ``Ball mit Freystäten (oder das englische Base-ball)`` -- that is, ``Ball with free station (or English Base-ball).`` The rules that Gutsmiths outlines are familiar: two teams compete, with a pitcher throwing a ball to a batsman who has three attempts to put the ball in play and circle the bases. Although many claim that the rules for modern baseball were first codified in 1845 by the Knickerbocker Base Ball Club, this description precedes it by almost 50 years. - "Gutsmuths`s documentation of the game is an important contribution to baseball history, because it is the strongest surviving evidence of an ancient family of European ball games that may have influcenced the inception of baseball in England" (David Block, Baseball Before We Knew It, 2005, p 182). The first description of rounders or any other baseball-like game did not appear in English until 1828. See also The Dickson Baseball Dictionary, 2011. - Rubbed and bumped. Title page with two small stamps verso, first plate with one small stamp verso.

        Viaggi dalla China alla costa Nord-Ovest d'America

      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. 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).Forbes, 'Hawaiian National Bibliography', 268; Strathern, 364.

        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. 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.Besterman, 4151; Carter, p. 223; Petzholdt, p. 546; Taylor, p. 231.

        Bibliothecae Josephi Garampii Cardinalis

      Materiarum Ordine digestus et Notis Bibliographicis Instructus a Mariano de Romanis. Five vols. 8vo, cont. half-vellum & decorated boards, contrasting leather lettering pieces on spines. Rome: de Romanis, 1796. One of the most important of all private library catalogues as well as one of the rarest; this catalogue was compiled for an inventory sale at the fixed prices marked. "This catalogue deserves a place among the best classified polymathic catalogues for its own sake and as a complement to the contemporary Firmiana and Pinelliana. Prefect of the Vatican archives from 1749 to 1772 and entrusted with the duty of buying books for the Vatican library, Cardinal Garampi (1725-92), was later nuncio in Warsaw and Vienna. His official life explains the nature and quality of his library and the opportunities he had to acquire books... "This well-printed catalogue compiled by Mariano de Romanis...has good tables of contents and excellent indexes of authors (with the titles of books) in each of the four volumes. The prices are printed in the catalogue. The Garampi catalogue with 16,630 items considerably exceeds both the Pinelli catalogue with 12,563 items (12,859 items in the London sale catalogue) and the Firmian catalogue with about 13,000 items... "The figures give no complete idea of the library, but no one can reconstruct it because De Romanis buried thousands of pamphlets in single lots. There are, for example, about 4600 Biblical tracts in Lot No. 8751 and 700 more in the next two lots. With 587 and 580 items, respectively, Lot Nos. 8810 and 8811 devoted to literary history and bibliography would have been sufficient to make any library fortunate enough to acquire them an important center for bibliographical studies. Had De Romanis listed these tracts individually, the Garampi catalogue would be an invaluable guide to eighteenth-century bibliography. But to expect this is to ask for more than he thought of doing and more than the circumstances permitted. The detailed classification, which is reliable as far as I have tested it, the indexes, and the good bibliographical and critical notes make this catalogue a joy to read."-Taylor, Book Catalogues, pp. 242-43. The collection was particularly strong in history (lots 8818-16,630). Vol. I contains a life of Garampi by Girolamo Amati. Fine set. ❧ Nicolini 66. Pollard & Ehrman, p. 204 & Table XXV. .

        Deutschlands Flora in Abbildungen nach der Natur mit Beschreibungen.

      Nürnberg, gedrückt auf Kosten der Verfassers, (1796-] 1798-1862. 163 parts (in 136 volumes). Small-8vo (145 x 95mm) With 2336 coloured plates. Publisher's printed wrappers or old wrappers Apart from 4 text leaves which are lacking in the section on phanerogams and replaced by photocopies, and 11 text leaves and the last 2 parts 35 & 36 (containing plates 49-72 and explanatory text) of the section on fungi and also replaced by (coloured) photocopies, a complete set of this rare work. The 'Deutschlands Flora' is composed in 3 different sections. The first one 'Phanerogamen' has 96 parts with 1440 handcoloured engraved plates, the second section 'Cryptogamen' has 31 parts with 416 handcoloured engraved plates and the third part 'Pilze' has 36 parts with 480 coloured plates. A complete set has not been on the market since decades. Jacob Sturm (1771 -1848) may be considered the most famous engraver of entomological and botanical scientific publications in Germany at the end of the 18th and beginning of the 19th century. During this period Nürnberg still was the centre of fine natural history book production in Germany. Sturm became a great collector of insects and founded the Nürnberg Society for Natural History. His plates are very delicately drawn and depict the smallest details and enjoyed a great popularity among naturalists. As most of his works were published in a small format, they could be purchased by a larger public. "The book contains... neat and attractive little engravings, no more than 5 in. by 3 1/2 in. in size... He thus deliberately chose this minute format in order to make a knowledge of the German flora available by pictures to as many as possible and as cheaply as possible. Despite their smallness, they carry a surprising amount of detail. Jacob Sturm learnt his art from his father, Johann Georg Sturm, who was also a Nuremberg engraver" (Blunt & Stearn p.258-260).

        L'Aveugle de la Montagne. Entretiens Philosophiques - Le Chant du Cygne ou la vie à venir et l'Immortalité.

      (Parma), (Bodoni), (1796). 1796 In-4° (350x248mm), pp. 30, (2) bianche, brossura coeva marmorizzata. Lievi fioriture interne. Esemplare in barbe e marginosissimo. Edizione impressa senza il nome dell'autore e senza dati tipografici di questi discorsi filosofici di Corneille François de Nelis; Bodoni ne aveva stampato un'altra edizione nel 1795, in-8°, ben più ampia e corredata di numerosi altri "Entretiens Philosophiques". La presente impressione in-4° è un semplice stralcio, contenente il solo "Chant du Cygne", della precedente del '95. L'opera completa era apparsa in edizione originale nel 1789. Il Nelis (Malines, 1736-nel convento camaldolese di Parma, 1798), addottoratosi in teologia a Lovanio, divenne subito dopo la laurea bibliotecario dell'Università della stessa città. Il governo austriaco gli conferì in seguito un canonicato della chiesa cattedrale di Tournai, il cui vescovo lo nominò in breve volgere di tempo proprio vicario. Nominato commissario reale dopo la soppressione dell'ordine gesuita, nel 1784 assurse alla carica di Vescovo di Anversa per interessamento di Giuseppe II. Nel 1794, all'avvicinarsi delle armate francesi, lasciò la propria diocesi per ritirarsi nel convento camaldolese di Parma. Tra i soci fondatori dell'Académie des Sciences et Belles Lettres di Bruxelles, lasciò, oltre all'"Aveugle de la Montagne", un elogio funebre di Maria Teresa e un "De Historia Belgica et ejusdem scriptoribus praecipuis commentatio". Seguace in filosofia del pitagorismo, espose le proprie dottrine nei discorsi dello stesso "Aveugle de la Montagne". Brooks, 640. Biblioteca Angelica, p. 64.

        Les liaisons dangereuses. Lettres recueillies dans une société et publiées pour l'instruction de quelques autres par C*** de L***..

      Londres, 1796. 1796 2 volumi in -8, pp. 415 - 398. Figurato con 2 antiporta e 13 tavole fuori testo (in prima tiratura) di Monnet, M.lle Gérard e Fragonard fils, incise in rame da Langlois, Le Mire, Bertaux et Dupréel ,Godefroy, Trière, Patas, Masquelier, Baquoy,et Simonet. Leg. vitello coevo, dorso liscio con dorature, titoli e numerazione dei tomi su tasselli di marocchino verde, piatti inquadrati da filetti dorati (usure alle cuffie e in alcuni punti delle cerniere). Rara edizione, stampata nel 1796 con il tratto doppio sotto la data (caratteristica che la distingue, insieme ad alcune altre differenze tipografiche dalla contraffazione stampata nel 1812). Con le belle illustrazioni che segnano il passaggio dell'estetica del XVIII secolo a quella del XIX. Pierre-Ambroise-François Choderlos deLaclos, scrittore ed ufficiale francese (Amiens, 1741 - Taranto, 1803) entra a diciotto anni come aspirante alla scuola d'artiglieria di La Fère, celebre per il suo insegnamento delle discipline matematiche. Ne esce tenente a ventidue anni dopo aver compiuto studi brillanti. Diventa capitano nel 1771, aiutante-maggiore nel 1772, ed infine Capitano comandante (generale) nel 1780. Nel 1781 Laclos ha quarant'anni, concepisce allora la scrittura de Le relazioni pericolose. Chiede un congedo di sei mesi, si chiude a La Rochelle e scrive di getto uno dei capolavori della letteratura del XVIII°. Agli antipodi dello stile preromantico della sua epoca ma ancora intriso delle atmosfere galanti e libertine del primo Settecento (Crébillon fils soprattutto), Le relazioni pericolose è un'opera amara, lucida, ironica: il libertinaggio vi è messo in scena quanto denunciato. Ma è anche un romanzo d'amore, nel quale Choderlos de Laclos esamina con forza i dettagli del cuore umano, pur condannando i difetti del suo secolo. Laclos morirà in Italia, a Taranto, al seguito dell'armata napoleonica. Cfr. Cohen 235

        Selling Rabbits

      London: Published by William Ward, 1 January 1796. Colour printed mezzotint with added hand colour. In good condition with the exception of some expert repairs to plate mark. 17 3/4 x 23 7/8 inches. 20 7/8 x 26 3/8 inches. 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

        GIORNALE DEGLI AMICI DELLA LIBERTA? E DELL?UGUAGLIANZA.

      In-8 gr. (mm. 250x200), bross., 8 pp. cad. numero. Offriamo 40 fascicoli, dal n. 2 (27 maggio 1796) al n. 41 (11 ottobre 1796), contenuti in una cartella mod. Preziosa e importante raccolta del primo giornale repubblicano pubblicato a Milano, che apparve il 23 maggio 1796 e cessò il 28 ottobre dello stesso anno. Il giornale venne fondato dal medico Giovanni Rasori, convinto della funzione fondamentale del giornalismo di fronte al problema nazionale italiano; cessò le sue pubblicazioni quando il Rasori fu nominato professore di patologia nell?Università di Pavia, riaperta per ordine di Napoleone. E? interessante rilevare che il periodico - al suo secondo numero - dovette ridurre il titolo originario di ?Giornale della Società degli Amici della Libertà e dell?Uguaglianza? in ?Giornale degli Amici della Libertà e dell?Uguaglianza? perché le vicende tempestose del club omonimo, ora chiuso, ora riaperto, non permettevano una stretta parentela con il periodico che ne voleva essere il portavoce. Ritornò in vita il 30 marzo 1797, ma cessò definitivamente il 2 giugno dello stesso anno. Il ?Giornale degli Amici della Libertà e dell?Uguaglianza?, che si era autodefinito ?il primogenito dei figli dell?Insubria libera?, aveva riposto ogni speranza patriottica nella Francia, ma a poco a poco le sue speranze si affievolirono di fronte all?atteggiamento dei Francesi vincitori. Solo il n. 28 con strappi e pesanti tracce d?uso marginali; qualche lieve uniforme arross. ma certam. un buon esemplare con barbe.

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

      London: Willyams, 1796. Aquatint by Samuel Alken. 12 1/8 x 18 3/4 inches. 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.
