Spine of the wrappers gone and wrappers detached and somewhat worn at the edges, but otherwise a very good, clean, large copy.. 4to, original blue wrappers, stitched, untrimmed, 56 pages.

Sarah Wentworth Apthorp Morton (1759-1846), who was called by her contemporaries "the American Sappho," is considered one of the finest American women poets of the 18th century. Her first poems appeared in the Massachusetts Magazine under the pseudonyms "Constania" and "Philenia, A Lady of Boston." The only evidence of authorship of Beacon Hill are the initials "S.M." at the conclusion of the preface, which she entitled "Apology for the Poem." Following the poem are several pages of notes on the events of the Revolution referred to in the poem.

Bei dieser Unterredung soll Bonaparte sehr erstaunt gewesen sein, 'daß diese Karten nur die Frucht einer Privatunternehmung sey', also ohne staatlichen Auftrag oder wenigstens Förderung zustande gekommen seien.'

Contemporary half calf, spines flat with simple gilt tooling, red morocco labels and oval black labels for volume numbers, slightly rubbed. Plates (notably plan and map) and second half vol.2 spotted, else a very god set in its genuine condition.- Rare first edition of “one of the most valuable works on China, describing districts never before traversed by Europeans.” (Sabin) Written by Andreas Everardus van Braam Houckgeest, the first American citizen to visit Peking and be presented to the Emperor, and with some of the earliest American maps of Chinese subjects. Houckgeest (1739 – 1801) began his career as a midshipman in the Dutch Navy before joining the Dutch East India Company. He arrived in China in 1758 and spent the next eight years engaging in trade in the Provinces of Guangzhou and Macao. After a brief return to the Netherlands, in 1783 he emigrated to South Carolina and became an American citizen, though within a few years he took up a position in a Dutch factory in Guangzhou. It was during this stay in China that Houckgeest proposed to Dutch officials in Batavia that an Embassy to the Qing court would perhaps help the merchants’ position in the region. His suggestion was heeded and an embassy was set in motion, following closely Macartney’s failed British embassy of 1793.

London: R. Noble for Richard Edwards, 1797. Large quarto. (16 5/8 x 12 3/4). 4 engraved section titles and 39 pages with engraved border illustrations by William Blake, with the letterpress Explanation of the Engravings leaf. Uncut on the fore-edge and lower edge. Minor offsetting as usual. Later half dark green morocco and green moire cloth boards, by Riviere & Son, spine with raised bands in seven compartments, lettered in the second and fourth, the others with a repeat decoration in gilt, burgundy glazed endpapers, top edge giltA spectacular work illustrated by Blake."Of the merit of Mr. Blake ... the editor conceives it to be unnecessary to speak. To the eyes of the discerning it need not be pointed out; and while the taste for the arts of design shall continue to exist, the original conception, and the bold and masterly execution of this artist cannot be unnoticed or unadmired" (advertisement, p.viii).Blake originally intended the present work to be the first installment of a much larger illustrated edition of Young's best selling poem. He chose 43 images to engrave from the 537 drawings in watercolour he had made around pages of the first edition of Young's poem, inlaid in album sheets. Perhaps baffled by the novelty of Blake's interpretations, the public remained unreceptive, and the book remains what is essentially a remarkable fragment: a tantalising hint of what might have been.A large copy. Bentley notes that "the paper was only marginally larger than the copperplate, and even in untrimmed copies ... parts of the platemark may not appear."

Paris, Antoine-Augustin Renouard, an VII-1799. 4 volumes in-8, XII-319p, 282p, 264p & 295p. Superbe édition Renouard, imprimée par Crapelet, sur beau papier vélin (bien épais). Elle est illustrée de 50 gravures en tout (sur 51, il manque la première), à savoir 3 portraits et 47 gravures, la plupart sous serpente. Les gravures sont numérotées de 1 à 51 avec des trous correspondants aux portraits (non numérotés sur notre exemplaire). La gravure manquante est la première gravure qui suit le portrait. L'illustration comprend donc 3 portraits de Gessner, Huber et Diderot gravés en taille-douce par Saint-Aubin et Tardieu d'après Denon, Graff et Van Loo et 47 (sur 48) belles figures de Moreau le jeune gravées en taille-douce par Baquoy, Dambrun, Delvaux, Dupréel, Ghendt, Girardet, Lemire, Petit, Simonet et Trière. Curieusement, nous avons vu plusieurs exemplaires avec des reliures de qualité auquel il manquait une gravure comme s'il y avait eu un problème lors de l'édition (il s'agit d'une supposition du libraire et dans tous les cas, l'illustration n'est complète qu'avec ses 51 gravures).

ROBERT DE VAUGONDY (Didier).
Paris, Delamarche, 1797. 646 x 949 mm. Grand plan de Paris, dressé par Didier Robert de Vaugondy, et publié par Charles-François Delamarche, qui racheta, en 1786, le fonds cartographique de Jean-Baptiste Fortin, successeur de Robert de Vaugondy. Ce plan, qui reprend la disposition des plans de Delagrive, est une version corrigée et étendue jusqu'aux nouvelles limites, d'un autre plan de Didier Robert de Vaugondy de 1760. Sur ce nouveau plan, les limites de Paris sont fixées par le Mur des Fermiers généraux, enceinte construite entre 1784 et 1790, et dont l'objectif était de permettre la perception, aux points de passage, d'un impôt sur les marchandises entrant dans la ville. Les passages ménagés dans l'enceinte s'appelaient des barrières. À l'est, Paris s'étend au-delà du faubourg Saint-Antoine, jusqu'à la barrière du Trône, où figure la place du Trône, actuelle place de la Nation. Certains lieux ont été renommés à la Révolution, comme la place de la Concorde, nommée place Royale avant la Révolution, et ici appelée place de la Révolution. Le pont de la Concorde est appelé pont de la Révolution. La place des Vosges est ici encore nommée place Royale, elle ne portera son nom actuel qu'à partir de 1800. Avec table alphabétique des rues et liste des 12 municipalités. En bas à gauche figure une carte du département de la Seine, créé le 27 janvier 1790, et qui comprenait Paris et les départements actuels des Hauts-de-Seine, de la Seine-Saint-Denis et du Val-de-Marne.

KANT, Immanuel
Frankfurt, Leipzig: [publisher unknown], 1797. 2nd Edition. Hardcover. 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall. 8vo (200 x 120 mm). [20], 130 pp. Later cardboard (slightly stained towards lower spine, corners little bumped), red-dyed edges. Text little evenly browned, brown spot to upper blank margin of 3 leaves, otherwise pretty clean and virtually unfoxed. Provenance: Illegible ownership inscription on title, a few text annotations in pencil. Near fine copy. ---- D.S.B VII, p.231; Warda 6. - Scarce second edition of Kant's third work, first printed in 1755. An "Auszug", i.e only part of the Naturgeschichte, was printed in 1791, but no other editions or part of the work appeared between 1755 and 1797, though a third and fourth edition appeared in 1798 and 1808. All editions of this work are of great rarity. In his youth Kant was a great admirerer of Newton, and in this work he bases his theories on him, but at the same time goes far beyond him. Kant describes how the solar system originated, and does this on the basis of his own mechanical principles. "In his "Theory of the heavens", Kant, by a series of bold strokes, anticipated astronomical facts that were later confirmed by very powerful observational techniques and with the help of relativistic cosmological theory. He conjectured that our solar system is a part of a vast system of stars making up a single galaxy, that the so-called nebolous-stars are galactic systems external to but similar to our own galaxy (a fact that was not confirmed until the twentieth century), and that there are many such galaxies making up the universe as a … [Click Below for Full Description]

BLAKE, William. YOUNG, Edward.
London: Printed by R. Noble for R. Edwards, 1797. 43 full page copper-plate engravings, designed and executed by Blake. Letterpress text. Large 4to., a very good and unusually generously-margined copy in handsome twentieth century brown half morocco with brown cloth sides by Riviere & Son, gilt ruling on spine which is in compartments with raised bands dotted in gilt, gilt lettering, t.e.g., otherwise uncut, marbled endpapers. One small tear to blank, a couple of pages have very mild creasing to the very edges and the final leaf has small, well-repaired tears, very mild browning to the edges of three leaves. Signature "D.N. Barbour, Dec. 1915" on first blank, stamp of Riviere and Henry Sotheran on verso of ffep. Front joint a little worn. A very good copy, with excellent large margins so without the usual aggressive trimming which has often removed the dates from the engravings of a great number of copies. With the oft lacking "Explanation of the Engravings" leaf, probably by Henry Fuseli. Blake worked particularly hard on this book, making over 500 drawings for only 43 engravings, which can be seen in the British Museum. The end result is spectacular and the setting of the pages remarkable. Bentley, 515; Keynes p.200.
