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.

Basilio LASINIO Pisa 1766 - 1839
1796. Rara veduta prospettiva della città, presa dal ponte San Giorgio, raffigurata durante l'assedio del 1796, iniziato da Napoleone Bonaparte, contro la guarnigione astriaca che si arrese nel febbraio dell'anno seguente. In basso, una rubrica con 22 rimandi ai luoghi principali riportato. L'intento principale dell'autore è la rappresentazione dell'assedio, illustrato in modo vivace e movimentato, per cui la veduta della città sullo sfondo è abbastanza approssimativa. Oltre alla cupola di S. Andrea, non sono riconoscibili le numerose architetture emergenti, nel tipico stile della veduta tedesca del periodo inaugurata da F. B. Werner. Acquaforte e acquatinata a colori, con coloritura coeva, alcuni strappi restaurati nel margine inferiore, per il resto in ottime condizioni. A rare view of the city, taken from the San Giorgio's Bridge, shows the siege of 1796, begun by Napoleone Bonaparte, against the Austrian that surrendered in February of the following year.

Carlo LASINIO (Treviso 1759 - Pisa 1838)
1796. "Dalla descrizione di Daniela Ferrari in ""Mantova nelle stampe"": La carta presenta una visuale molto vasta e al tempo steso minuziosa e dettagliata. Illustra le fasi dell'assedio francese:in primo piano il generale Bonaparte riceve i parlamentari austriaci, compaiono poi le retroguardie e gli schieramenti delle truppe. Sullo sfondo è raffigurata la città sottoposta ai cannoneggiamneti delle batterie francesi, disposte su zatteroni galleggianti e si vedono i borghi di S. Giorgio e di Porto con i rispettivi ponti; particolare curioso è il pallone aereostatico in alto a destra che avrebbe dovuto essere innalzato dai Francesi per dirigere le operazioni belliche. L'opera deriva da un disegno dal vivo di Basilio Lasionio, inciso da Carlo Lasinio. Incisione in rame, in ottimo stato di conservazione. Molto rara." Copper engraving, in excellent condition. Very rare. Ferrari, Mantova nelle stampe, p. 129, 128; Arrigoni Bertarelli 1934, p. 128.

Pasquin Shaveblock
S. Hand and H. Garson, 1796. Softcover. 12mo. 23, [1] pp. Crude title-page woodcut vignette, with caption: "I'll shave 'em like a punish'd soldier, DRY. No killing Swine shall make a sweeter cry." Collation: [A]6 B6. Complete. Modern sympathetic wrappers. Lightly toned, but the paper stock strong. Evidence of tape stain in two gutter margins. Very good. Early American imprint of a fake "Sermon for the Fast" which ridicules clerical, legal, political, and military "shavers." The text was attributed by Evans to John Macgowan, author of several works issued under the pseudonyms of "The Shaver" and "Pasquin Shaveblock." But Macgowan could not have written the present work as he had died in 1780, and the pamphlet first appeared in London in 1795. Furthermore, on the verso of the title-page are two "Testimonies in Favor of this Sermon," both of which were published fifteen years after Magowan's death. The one from the "Monthly Review" (1795, vol. XVI, no. 7, p. 357) reads in part: "This title-page needs little comment. The dullest reader will instantly perceive that this barber lathers with irony, and means to shave off all public fast-days with the razor of ridicule. The war, the administration, the clergy, -- all come in for a close-trimming; and the operation will be pronounced good-fun at the Goose and Grid-iron in St. Paul's Church-yard, the Crown in Bow-lane, and the Bear in Bow-street. -- The text is: 'Take unto thee a Barber's razor' (Ezek. V,1)." This is the very copy that first appeared in the 1978 MS Rare Books Catalogue 20 (item 413). Since that time only one other ha … [Click Below for Full Description]

Collates [4], xiii, [1], 184: complete, including half and full titles, 12 plates and folding table. ESTC lists only 10 copies at U.S. institutions; and with only four appearances at auction in the past 30 years, this important science text has become quite scarce. Educated rigorously at home in Latin, Greek, and the classics, Priscilla Wakefield early on was committed to work that expanded girls' access to the humanities and sciences. "Wakefield wrote seventeen books, principally moral tales, natural history, and travelogues...Wakefield succeeded because she produced improving and didactic works of non-fiction that middle-class parents were choosing to buy. Unlike Romantic writings that celebrated imagination and fantasy, Wakefield's books have a deliberate tone, are filled with information, and focus on real-life experiences in the present day. Characteristically they have a family setting and promote new-style progressive pedagogy based in domestic conversations; mothers often teach their own children, and girls receive as much attention as boys" (ODNB). The present work is one of the earliest examples of her work in natural history -- and her creation of books that contribute to Enlightenment goals of spreading science … [Click Below for Full Description]

- De l'Imprimerie de P. Didot l'Aîné, Paris An V de la République, 1796, 11x18,5cm, (4) 157 pp. ; 5 pp., broché. - Prima edizione illustrata con un incisione incisa da Charles-Etienne Gaucher secondo Jean-Jacques Le Barbier e 4 pagine di incisione alla fine del volume. La Marsigliese appare nella sua vera edizione originale, essendo stata oggetto di una pre-pubblicazione in The Almanac of the Muses nel 1793 e sotto forma di volantini sfusi. Una delle pochissime copie come pubblicate, in brossura sotto la copertina blu. La figura marsigliese nel libro tra le altre poesie e canzoni. Questa prima edizione consegna la famosa canzone nel suo stato originale: comprende sei quartine, come è stato scritto dal Capitano Rouget de l'Isle per l'Esercito del Reno nell'aprile del 1792, poi ha istituito l'inno nazionale nel 1795 dal decreto del 26 ° anno messicano III. Paroliers e letterati, Rouget de l'Isle e La Chabeaussière erano gli zelanti servitori della Rivoluzione, ma anche le vittime dei suoi eccessi. Alla scrittura di questa dedica, nell'anno V della Repubblica, i due uomini sono al culmine della loro gloria. Uno è l'autore dell'inno nazionale che emoziona la Francia rivoluzionaria e l'altro il più popolare catechismo repubblicano durante la Rivoluzione. In effetti, lo Chabeaussière compone anche un'importante opera dell'eredità rivoluzionaria: un catechismo repubblicano, filosofico e morale , ristampato 82 volte fino alla Terza Repubblica, e che lo ha promosso alla Commissione esecutiva dell'istruzione pubblica . Come Rouget de L'Isle, ha avuto successo come paroliere e librett … [Click Below for Full Description]

Bernardin de Saint-Pierre; Samuel Hill; Henry Hunter
Boston : Printed for W. Spotswood et J. Nancrede, 1796. Hardcover. Good. [Rare Early American Imprint] 2 volumes. 32mo. Bound in contemporary calf-backed boards. Joints cracked, dried. Engraved frontispieces. Translated from the French of J.H.B. de Saint Pierre, author of the Studies of nature, by H. Hunter, D.D. ; Embellished with engravings. . Plates engraved by Samuel Hill. - Welch, d'A.A. Amer. children's books, 1143.1. Evans 31150. Early translation of Paul et Virginie, printed in 18th century Boston. Quite scarce example of 18th century American juvenile literature. This book was the inspiration for the later British book, "the Blue Lagoon." (and by this route, the 1980 Brooke Shields movie of the same name.) The work was first printed in French in 1787 as a criticism of the classism of the old regime at the eve of the Revolution. St. Pierre compared corruption in French society to the state of nature the lovers found on the Isle of Mauritius, where goods, food, and land were shared by all without greed or schemes.
