WOLLSTONECRAFT, Mary
Third Edition; contemporary half-calf; 8vo. "I do not wish them [women] to have power over men; but over themselves." A Vindication of the Rights of Woman is probably the first work of feminism. Wollstonecraft argued that the educational system of her time deliberately trained women to be frivolous and incapable. She posited that an educational system that allowed girls the same advantages as boys would result in women who would be not only exceptional wives and mothers but also capable workers in many professions. Wollstonecraft's work was unique in suggesting that the betterment of women's status be effected through such political change as the radical reform of national educational systems. Such change, she concluded, would benefit all society. Hinges cracked and spine worn especially to foot, however the pages are very clean.

First edition of this scarce exhibition catalogue, which records the items displayed for the first drawings exhibition held at the Musée central des Arts (now the Louvre). The exhibited items were nearly all drawn from the deposed Louis XVI's collection and, in many cases, shown to the public for the first time, a detail that the Avertissement underscores. "Though a handful of drawings had been displayed at the Luxembourg.the exhibition at the Musée central was the first to be devoted exclusively to them.From the three schools 415 drawings were chosen from a collection of more than 11,000.The intent of the exhibition was primarily didactic (.aspiring artists were given privileged access), and the administration even composed an exercise book for use in the gallery. Following the example of the recent Salon exhibition and in anticipation of the Grand Gallery, the drawings were arranged sequentially in schools and vertically according to size."-A. McClellan, Inventing the Louvre: Art, Politics, and the Origins of the Modern Museum in Eighteenth-Century Paris (1994), pp. 127-28. This livret catalogues twelve tapestries in the Grand Salon of the museum (with thorough descriptions), 13 portfolios and drawings in the Galerie d'Apollon, along with approximately 427 drawings, enamels, and marble sculptures.

Pars Verna, Pars Hyemalis, Pars Autumnalis, Pars AestivaMatriti, Typis, et Sumptibus Regiae Societatis Typographorum Bibliopolarumque. 1796.4 uniform volumes bound in full red morocco, intricate floral fillet on the covers, all edges gilt, marbled endpapers. With slip-case original, leather.A rare complete set of a late 18th century liturgical edition by the Real Society Tipography, illustrated with full page copperengravings, printed throughout in red and black, with vignettes and tailends printed either in red or black from woodengravings. The breviary was one of the most important liturgical books in the Roman catholic church. These in-4° editions served for the daily readings by the religious communities. Because of this daily manipulating and the rather regularly changings of the texts, which led to the discarting of outdated versions; complete and good copies of pre-1800 breviaries are very rare, even more so in a luxury binding.

à Villeneuve, chez le citoyen Currius fils, imprimeur, 1796, in 8°, de 4ff. et paginé de 5 à 153pp., pl. basane marbrée époque, dos lisse orné, tampon ex-libris 18e J.B.G au titre, bon exemplaire. Edition originale de ces poésies occitanes rassemblées et publiées par Jacques Tailhé. Le compagnon Arnaud Daubasse (1650-1720) né à Moissac, fit le "tour de France", puis s'établit comme "maître peignier" et cabaretier dans la maison de son beau-père à Villeneuve sur lot. Son établissement était fréquenté par l'élite locale et sa boutique était des mieux achalandées. Il se distingua rapidement par ses talents d'improvisateur et de poète, et sa renommée se développa, dès lors, rapidement. Les seigneurs des environs le convièrent dans leurs châteaux pour entendre ses boutades spirituelles. Le duc de Biron, qui avait un château près de Villeneuve, se déclara son protecteur. Le comte de Fumel, le marquis de Belzunce, Madame de Rigoulières, le recevaient à leur table. Il fut aussi honoré de l'amitié du maréchal de Montrevel et du duc de Berwick. Ses poésies, principalement en occitan, l'avaient rendu populaire. Il fut appelé successivement à Agen, à Montauban, à Toulouse et jusqu'à Marseille, pour y dire des vers. Son oeuvre fut rassemblée par ses admirateurs après sa mort, car il était sans doute analphabète, et meurt sans laisser de trace écrite.

Burke, Edmund
London, England: London: Sold by the Booksellers in town & country, 1796. A VINDICATION OF NATURAL SOCIETY; Or, A View Of The Miseries & Evils, Arising To Mankind, From Every Species Of Artificial Society. Author: Burke, Edmund; by a Late Nobel Writer. Publication: London: Sold by the Booksellers, in town and country, 1796. Description: 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall. 1796 edition. A Very Good copy. 8vo., ix, 34 pp. Bound in new marbled paper wraps, with new end papers. Further housed in a new, custom made cloth folder. Title page is lightly foxed, and moderately soiled, with an occasional small spot of soiling of the text. A Very Good copy, handsomely presented. ***The late Lord Bolingbroke's Letters on the Study and Use of History was published in 1752 and his collected works appeared in 1754. This provoked Burke into writing his first published work, A Vindication of Natural Society: A View of the Miseries and Evils Arising to Mankind, appearing in Spring 1756. Burke imitated Bolingbroke's style and ideas in a reductio ad absurdum of his arguments for atheistic rationalism, demonstrating their absurdity. Reviewers and critics wrote positive aticles, appearently missing the satire.

It is thought to advance the contemporary spirit of romanticism as it follows their hardships and mistakes on the path of love. Burney brings in social, emotional, and mental dilemmas that made Camilla a popular read. Complete in five volumes. First Edition.

William Faden's scarce 1796 map of the United States showing the State of Franklin, East and West Florida, and a vast Louisiana Territory that was still part of Spain. This map is titled The United States of North America: With the British Territories and Those of Spain, according to the Treaty of 1784. The image area measures 54.3 x 83 cm [21" x 24¾”] on a larger sheet, with generous margins. The coverage area extends from Newfoundland and James Bay to the southern tip of Texas, here labeled "Cenis" for the Indian tribe that occupied the eastern region. There is a large, decorative title cartouche incorporating a rocky landscape, with sailors unloading barrels from a small boat, and a color-coded legend key identifying lands belonging to the United States, Great Britain, Spain, France, and the "Aborigines or Indians." The map locates the State of Franklin, also identified as Franklinia, in a slice of territory between North Carolina and an area labeled "Tannessee Government." Franklinia was formed by settlers in 1784, but it was never recognized by Congress. Eventually it was annexed by North Carolina and later reverted back to Tennessee. The map also shows the lands of numerous Indian tribes, including the Seminole, Creek, Choctaw, Osage, Algonquin, Sioux, and Iroquois. And it locates the new national capital of the United States: "Washington, or the Federal City," and it labels "The Twenty Leagues Line," located off of the east coast, marking the maritime jurisdiction of the United States. It marks a number of "company lands" and areas reserved for troops who'd served in … [Click Below for Full Description]

An den ihr befreundeten Wiener Kaufmann Stanislaus Doré de Beauville (1796-1860), der ihr den Tod seiner Gemahlin mitgeteilt hatte, der ehemaligen Schauspielerin Franzisca, geb. Caspers, die am 18. Mai verstorben war. Sehr ausführlicher, mitfühlender Kondolenzbrief, in dem Dorothea die Verstorbene ihre "unvergessliche, liebe, liebenswürdige Freundin" nennt: "[...] Ich habe hier eine h. Messe für die Ruhe ihrer lieben Seele lesen lassen, bey welcher meine ganze Familie zugegen. Alle Mitglieder derselben (ganz insbesondre mein Sohn Philipp) die sie gekannt haben, lassen Ihnen ihre innigste Theilnahme bezeigen. Auf Philipp [Veit] hat die liebe Franzisca immer viel gehalten, und auch er war ihr immer wie ein jüngerer Bruder zugethan. Er betrauert von Herzen ihren frühen Tod [...] Ich sagte, daß uns die plötzliche Nachricht überraschte, und so ist es, obgleich ihre längere Krankheit uns schon seit einiger Zeit hätte vorbereiten sollen, sie selber auch in ihrem letzten Briefe von ihrem nahen Ende schrieb; ich hielt dies aber für eine etwas übertriebene Aengstlichkeit und baute zu sehr auf ihre immer rege Lebenskraft, die sich in jedem Worte aussprach; trotzdem daß die Freunde in Wien sehr bedenklich über ihren Zustand schrieben glaubte ich es nicht [...] Meine erste Vorstellung, wenn ich an sie denke - und dies geschieht täglich - ist immer wie sie thätig, heiter, und die Seele ihrer Umgebung in ihrem häuslichen Kreise, unter den Freunden sich bewegt, und nur eine zweite Reflexion führt mir den unersetzlichen Verlust vor die Erinnerung [...] wie waren die selten sich zusammen fin … [Click Below for Full Description]

Paris: L'Imprimerie des Sciences et Arts, 1796/97 [An 5].First edition of this scarce exhibition catalogue, which records the items displayed for the first drawings exhibition held at the Musée central des Arts (now the Louvre). The exhibited items were nearly all drawn from the deposed Louis XVI's collection and, in many cases, shown to the public for the first time, a detail that the Avertissement underscores."Though a handful of drawings had been displayed at the Luxembourg...the exhibition at the Musée central was the first to be devoted exclusively to them...From the three schools 415 drawings were chosen from a collection of more than 11,000...The intent of the exhibition was primarily didactic (...aspiring artists were given privileged access), and the administration even composed an exercise book for use in the gallery.

PHILADELPHIA: Printed by Bejamin Franklin Bache (Franklin's grandson), No. 112 Market St. Paine believed that U.S. President George Washington had conspired with Robespierre to imprison him. He had felt largely betrayed that Washington, who had been a lifelong friend, did nothing while Paine suffered in prison. While staying with Monroe, he planned to send Washington a letter of grievance on the former President's birthday. Monroe stopped the letter from being sent just in time and after Paine's criticism of the Jay Treaty Monroe suggested that Paine reside somewhere else.[84] Still embittered by the perceived betrayal, Paine tried to ruin Washington's reputation by calling him a treacherous man who was unworthy of his fame as a military and political hero. He sent a stinging letter to Washington, in which he described him as an incompetent commander and a vain and ungrateful person. Paine never received a reply, so he contacted his lifelong publisher, the anti-Federalist Benjamin Bache to publish this Letter to George Washington in 1796. In this scathing publication, Paine wrote that "the world will be puzzled to decide whether you are an apostate or an impostor; whether … [Click Below for Full Description]

Very good. Fore-edge painting of "Rotti Bridge, Rome." The "Ponte Rotto" was drawn by J.D. Harding and engraved by Edward Francis Finden, ca.1834, and the fore-edge artist (anonymous) has used this view to apply to the edge of this edition of Petrarch.* The artist who painted the scene has inscribed the title in neat pencil (ffep).

For a similar view, see: Rome: View of the Tiber from the Ponte Rotto to the Isola Tiberina with the Monastery of San Bartolomeo by Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot (1796–1875). The inscription of the title of the painting is not typical of the "Dover" painter's style of writing and may be supplied. PROVENANCE: Bookplate of Bernadine Murphy Donahue (1904-1968), a prominent California Catholic philanthropist who married Daniel Donahue in 1954 and established the Daniel Murphy Foundation in 1957 in memory of her father, to promote Roman Catholic causes.

Pope, Alexander.
London, Printed and sold by Darton and Harvey, 1796. Small Octavo. Frontispiece, [16], 96 pages. Hardcover / Contemporary half leather. Binding in very poor condition. Boards cleanly detached from the binding. Needs a new binding and is a perfect candidate for a new masterbinding by one of the important and traditional english binderies like Bayntun, Bath. Interior only slightly foxed and in very good condition. An Essay on Man is a poem published by Alexander Pope in 1733-1734. It is an effort to rationalize or rather „vindicate the ways of God to man" (l.16), a variation of John Milton's claim in the opening lines of Paradise Lost, that he will „justify the ways of God to men" (1.26). It is concerned with the natural order God has decreed for man. Because man cannot know God's purposes, he cannot complain about his position in the Great Chain of Being (ll.33-34) and must accept that „Whatever IS, is RIGHT" (l.292), a theme that was satirized by Voltaire in Candide (1759). More than any other work, it popularized optimistic philosophy throughout England and the rest of Europe. Pope's Essay on Man and Moral Epistles were designed to be the parts of a system of ethics which he wanted to express in poetry. Moral Epistles has been known under various other names including Ethic Epistles and Moral Essays. On its publication, An Essay on Man received great admiration throughout Europe. Voltaire called it „the most beautiful, the most useful, the most sublime didactic poem ever written in any language". In 1756 Rousseau wrote to Voltaire admiring the poem and saying that it „so … [Click Below for Full Description]

The work contains material of great ethnographic interest and Thunberg is often referred to as the "the Japanese Linnaeus". Thunberg left Holland in 1771 and returned in 1778, spending three years at the Cape and five in Japan he became the first Western Scientist to investigate Japan's botany:"After his stay in Paris Thunberg returned to Amsterdam and was offered the opportunity to go to Japan in the service of Dutch merchants (Poll, Deutz and Hoven), to collect plants for the Amsterdam botanical garden and for their own collections. In order to be admitted in Japan, Thunberg had to pass as a Dutchman; he therefore spent 3 years in the Dutch colony at the Cape of Good Hope, becoming acquainted with the Dutch language and collecting plant material. After that he spent half a year on Java, and in August 1775 he arrived in Japan (Nagasaki). After his return from Japan, in November 1776, he spent another half year on Java."

1796. COLLECTIF GAZETTE NATIONALE, OU LE MONITEUR UNIVERSEL. Paris, Rue des Poitevins, chez le citoyen Aubry, Directeur 1 volumes in-folio ( 45 x 30 cm), du n°222 (1er mai 1796 - 12 floréal an IV de la République) au n°365 (21 septembre 1796 - 5e jour complémentaire an IV de la République). Soit 143 fascicules de 4 pages chacun (plus de 570 pages). Reliure de l'époque demi-parchemin de réemploi, titré à la plume au dos, plats de carton gris. Usures d'usage, ensemble solide. Intérieur en bon état, quelques déchirures et galeries de vers sans gravité. Le papier est de qualité inégale, parfois blanc mais souvent gris et épais, ceci étant dû aux difficultés d'approvisionnement en papier durant cette période post-révolutionnaire. Panckoucke, l'éditeur de l'Encyclopédie méthodique publia tout d'abord La Gazette nationale dans le format in-folio et fut le premier éditeur d'un « papier-nouvelles à la manière anglaise ». La Gazette devait contenir les débats de l'Assemblée constituante, les événements de politique intérieure et extérieure, en transcrivant en entier les actes publics, diplômes, traités et autres documents authentiques. Dès le premier numéro, paru le 24 novembre 1789, les débats de l'Assemblée, comme les actes du pouvoir, furent retranscrits fidèlement et sans commentaires grâce à la sténographie. Il résulta de cette exactitude dans la publication des informations que le Moniteur universel reproduisit, dès l'origine, les faits accomplis avec le sens et les couleurs que lui donnaient les acteurs eux-mêmes, portés tour à tour au pouvoir ou à la tête de la majorité en fo … [Click Below for Full Description]
