Haiti]: Wigglesworth, John
Port-au-Prince, 1796. Broadside, 3 1/2 x 9 3/4 inches, docketed on verso. Minor toning. Very good. A rare pay order for supplies intended for the British occupation force in Haiti, made out to M. Jure aine. The document is signed by John Wigglesworth, agent to the Commander of the British forces in Haiti and later Britain's envoy to the leader of the Haitian Revolution, Touissant Louverture. By early the next century, Louverture would become, ever so briefly, chief of the first free Black Republic in Haiti. The payee, Jure, has docketed the verso in French, with an additional docket in French transferring payment to Dutilh & Wachsmuth, a Philadelphia mercantile house. St. Domingo, the French part of Haiti, was a highly prosperous sugar, coffee, and cotton slave-estate island whose produce was described as exceeding that of the whole of the British Leeward and surrounding islands. In 1789 it was said to consist of 10,000 white people, 24,000 free mixed-race people, and 455,000 negro slaves. Although free, local laws decreed that mixed-race individuals could not accept any office or employment other than as planters. As news spread of the revolution, this group revolted but were roundly defeated. Part of the white response to the uprising was to create their own local assembly which excluded those of mixed race and resolved to transfer the island's allegiance to Great Britain, whereupon France sent Commissioners who according to some reports recruited negroes to fight the whites. Starting in August 1791, the slaves revolted in many towns, implementing major massacres a … [Click Below for Full Description]

GODWIN, William.
London: printed for G. G. and J. Robinson, 1796. 2 volumes, octavo (213 x 127 mm). Contemporary tree calf, black and green twin morocco labels, smooth spines with gilt motifs to compartments. Pencilled shelf marks to front endpapers. Bound without half-title. Light rubbing to spines and extremities, a few minor marks to covers, some foxing to a few gatherings but generally clean. A lovely copy. Second edition, following the first of 1793, of one of the most radical and far-reaching political tracts of the era, by the father of British philosophical radicalism. First published just weeks after the execution of Louis XVI, and written in response to Burke's Reflections, Godwin's tract attacks all restraints on the exercise of individual judgement - in the belief that human opinions will become progressively more enlightened with the growth of knowledge. Among Godwin's targets were established religion and marriage, and he believed that government itself would ultimately become unnecessary. The work directly provoked Thomas Malthus to write his Essay on the Principle of Population (1798). Godwin revised the text for the second edition, moderating some of his views, and continued to do so further for future editions. This greatly vexed the poet Percy Bysshe Shelley, who took this book, in its original form, as his bible. With the bookplates of Sir Thomas Courtenay Theydon Warner (1857-1934), Liberal (later Coalition Liberal) MP for North Somerset from 1892 to 1895 and for Lichfield from 1896 to 1923, and mayor of Walthamstow from 1929 onwards.

Kodera Osai
Japan: 1796. Large 8vo, pp. [108]; old Japanese "grass" script with Chinese elements, 18 extraordinary double-page watercolor illustrations; sewn and bound in the oriental style (fukurotoji) in original speckled beige wrappers; very slightly worn, preserving the original manuscript label label; a very good, attractive example, beautifully illustrated. An account of a voyage through the Izu Islands, a chain of islands south of Tokyo Bay, including Hachijojima, Hidojima, Arajima, Ooshima, and Miyakejima. Apparently one of three volumes, but this trip is complete unto itself. Apparently this voyage came as the result of an order from the Kansei Shogunate. During this period there were a number of people who traveled at the government's request to record geographical and cultural observations all over Japan, including Ino Tadataka who is known for completing the first map of Japan. Among these travelers was a local magistrate by the name of "Ochu" ("Taichu") who lead an expedition in 1796 to the Izu Islands. With him was the artist Kodera Osai, and it is his art work that graces this spectacular manuscript. The textual account of the voyage, dated April to December, 1796, is also likely his. In it he records excursions to temples (on the island of Hachijo he used the Soufukuji Temple as lodging), recounts his experiences with the local cuisines (he's a fan of sake), takes note of the silk and weaving industry, and records incidents of family life (in one particular household he notes that there were 14 to 15 children, all of whom were hungry). He describes the flora and fauna ( … [Click Below for Full Description]

Robinson, corner of William and John Streets, and J. Bull no. 115, Cherry-Street, and sold by James Rivington, no. 156, Pearl-Street., M DCC XCVI. [1796] First London Edition.Size: ~9in X 5.75in (23cm x 14.5cm). George Washington (February 22, 1732 [O.S. February 11, 1731][Note 1][Note 2] - December 14, 1799) was one of the Founding Fathers of the United States, serving as the commander-in-chief of the Continental Army during the American Revolutionary War. He also presided over the convention that drafted the Constitution, which replaced the Articles of Confederation. The Constitution established the position of President of the republic, which Washington was the first to hold. Washington was elected President as the unanimous choice of the 69 electors in 1788, and he served two terms in office. He oversaw the creation of a strong, well-financed national government that maintained neutrality in the wars raging in Europe, suppressed rebellion, and won acceptance among Americans of all types. His leadership style established many forms and rituals of government that have been used since, such as using a cabinet system and delivering an inaugural address. Further, the peaceful transition from his presidency to the presidency of John Adams established a tradition that continues into the 21st century. Historically, Washington has been widely regarded as th … [Click Below for Full Description]

Da VINCI, Leonardo
1796. I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I have many more photos on my website...just ask. "Painting is poetry that is seen rather than felt, and poetry is painting that is felt rather than seen." ― Leonardo da Vinci Originally published in 1651, Leonardo da Vinci's 'Trattato della Pittura' or 'Treatise on Painting' is a collection of notes and writings on painting. The main focus of this treatise was to convey that painting was a science and not just an artform. (Greenberg, 259). Da Vinci discusses the state of human emotion in art and incorporates the depictions of those emotions in his art. This late 18th-century English edition was published in London and compiled and edited by Pierre François Giffart. This work does not only include the sketches of Da Vinci - it features original line drawings of Nicholas Poussin including the sketch of 'Mona Lisa'. [Attributes: First Edition]

Attractively bound in contemporary red half morocco, flat spines ruled in compartments with two-line bands, titled and numbered in gilt in two compartments, others with small flower-head tools gilt at centre, marbled sides, blue endpapers, green silk bookmarks. A little rubbing, but an excellent set in a handsome contemporary binding. Half-titles discarded by the contemporary binder as often, but with the final advert leaf in vol. I. Irish armorial bookplates of FitzPatrick of Grantstown Manor, Queen's County. First edition of Fanny Burney's third novel and her most spectacular success in commercial terms. The list of subscribers includes leading society figures and dignitaries, alongside the bluestockings, surviving members of the Johnson circle like Bennet Langton and Hester Thrale, and fellow women writers Anne Radcliffe, Hannah More, Maria Edgeworth and Jane Austen, then an unknown 20-year-old. The author was paid £1,000 for the copyright and gained at least as much again from the subscription. The sale was even more rapid than it had been for Cecilia, with almost all the 4,000 copies disposed of by November 1796.

DIDEROT, (DENIS). - [CALLING OUT RELIGIOUS INSTITUTIONS]
Paris, Buisson, (1796/97) - An Cinquième De La République. 8vo. Very nice contemporary half calf with gilt spine. Minor, barely noticeable repair to upper capital and slight bumping to corners. A very nice and clean copy, with only very minor brownspotting. Printed on good paper. With the half-title (bearing the "Décret concernant les Contrefacteurs" on verso). Book plate of Guy de Portuales to inside of front board. (4), 411, (1) pp. ¶ The very rare first edition of Diderot's famous novel, "The Nun", which was actually begun as an elaborate practical joke, but which ended up as one of the most famous novels of the period. A great succes-de-scandale, "The Nun" has both fascinated and unsettled the vast reading public since its first appearance. It started out as a series of letters from a fictitious character, the nun Suzanne, to one of Diderot's friends, the Marquis de Crosmare (who Diderot was trying to lure back to Paris), describing her intolerable life in the convent and imploring him to help regain her freedom and her renounce her vows. The fictitious letters were later revised and written in to the novel that we know today. The work was completed in ab. 1780 and was published posthumously in 1796/97, attracting enormous attention and bringing to light a number of issues that had not previously been publically addressed. It focuses on the then-current practice of forcing young women into convents in order to get them out of the way, on the unnatural life of the convents, and on the corruption in religious institutions and among the clergy. As such, it caused an outrag … [Click Below for Full Description]
