        Voyage autour du monde , sur le vaisseau de Sa Majeste Britannique l'Endeavour? avec les planches de l'auteur?

      De l'Imprimerie de Guillaume, Paris 1797 - Two volumes, octavo, good impressions of the six folding engraved plates after Parkinson, a few leaves a little foxed; a particularly handsome set in contemporary French mottled calf, flat spine gilt, double red and tan morocco labels. First French issue. First French edition, first issue: the rarely sighted French edition of the artist's account of Cook's first voyage and the discovery of eastern Australia. Translated by C. Henri from the 1784 English edition, it also contains material from later voyagers updating the account, including the experiences of the Forsters on the second voyage. This is the octavo issue noted by Kroepelien as preceding the otherwise identical quarto of the same year. Parkinson had been employed in 1767 by Sir Joseph Banks, who thought so highly of his work that he arranged for the young man to join him on Cook's first voyage. When the expedition's draughtsman Alexander Buchan died at Tahiti, Parkinson was called on to take over all of the topographical work, completing some 1300 sketches, quite apart from compiling vocabularies in Tahiti and New Holland. At the end of the voyage, en route from Batavia to the Cape of Good Hope, he died of a fever, and after the return of the Endeavour ownership of his manuscripts and drawings was disputed: Banks considered that they were his, while Parkinson's brother Stanfield claimed them under the provisions of his brother's will. When Hawkesworth learned of the impending publication of this work, he got an injunction to delay its appearance until some time after his official account, and, despite having used Parkinson's work extensively, retaliated by deliberately omitting Parkinson's name from the narrative: even the botanical illustrations in the official account have no credit to the artist. Some of the bibliographical history of this work is quite complex. An extended note by Rolf du Rietz in the Kroepelien catalogue explains that this octavo issue, although textually identical to a quarto issue published the same year by the same publisher, is actually the genuine first issue (du Rietz demonstrates from an error in the signatures that the quarto was "re-imposed"). Du Rietz only knew the octavo from a copy in the University of Oslo, although no complete census of the two issues has ever been attempted. A note in O'Reilly-Reitman suggests - as if we needed more complexity - that the number of plates is uncertain, as they examined copies with any number between five and eight; nonetheless, six plates is the standard collation.

        Le tarsier podje / . vol.13 / des Iles moluques" [original watercolour sketch for 'Le Tarsier / Tarsius Daubentonii']

      - Original pencil, bodycolour and watercolour by Audebert, on laid paper. Fine condition. Sheet size: 20 3/4 x 13 3/4 inches. A very fine original watercolour by Audebert: an original of an image that was published as the print titled 'Le Tarsier' in his first great natural history book 'Histoire Naturelle des Singes' (Paris: 1797-1800). Although the present drawing is unsigned, it is clearly by Audebert. This fine watercolour gives some insight into the working methods of one of the most highly respected pioneers of a golden era in natural history publications in France. Audebert, a painter by training, was born at Rochefort. His interest in natural history was stimulated by a commission to help with the preparation of the plates for G. A. Olivier's work on Coleoptera. This drawing is an original for Audebert's Histoire Naturelle des Singes, the only publication of his own work to be completed during his life-time, which was published in ten parts between 1797 and 1800. He died in 1800, in Paris, leaving notes and drawings for a number of other works which were published after his death. Tarsiers are nocturnal, arboreal, insect- eating animals. They live in the coastal rainforests and bamboo thickets of Sumatra, Borneo, Sulawesi, Mindanao and the Philippines.

However his literary work, The Hundred of Desborough, although full of poetical descriptions was sadly lacking in scholarly method [DNB].

      Troy: Printed for the Author by Luther Pratt, 1797 - Duodecimo (157 × 98 mm). Contemporary sheep, black label to spine. Contemporary ownership inscription, dated 1806, of William Coon to the front endpapers. A little rubbed, contents browned as often, short splits at the head of frontispiece and title page, now repaired with archival tissue, a very good copy. Frontispiece. Second edition, same year as the first. Complete with the frontispiece showing "the Author relating the History of his Travels," which is often lacking. Recommendations from Benjamin Rush ("I feel myself indebted to you ") and Dr. Felix Pascalis[-Ouvrière], vice-president of the Chemical Society of Philadelphia, and president of the Philadelphia College of Physicians ("I have read with pleasure your History of your voyage to the coast of Africa") on page iii-iv. "Is this the first account of an African voyage by an American? Hawkins set sail from Charleston late in 1793. He travelled extensively and perilously in the country of the Ibos, who then were engaged in warfare with their neighbours. Much of the author's narrative describes a Galla invasion into Ibo territory. He was well treated by the Africans, and learned much about their customs and laws. His description of the Ibo capital is worth noting: 'Their streets were laid out with a considerable regard to order, so as even to be observed at a distance; there was not anything of grandeur, it is true, but certainly a degree of elegant simplicity and neatness which I did not expect to find.' He was impressed by these Africans but not by the white factors on the coast who lived a debauched and lazy life" (Wolf). Some questions have been raised as to the complete veracity of Hawkins's account (cf. Fage, Hawkins' Hoax? A Sequel to Drake's Fake, History in Africa, vol. 18), but it is referred to frequently on the Smithsonian's website in relation to the details of the American maritime trade in the eighteenth century.

        CONSIDÉRATIONS SUR LA FRANCE.

      1797 - Londres [Bregenz, en Autriche?], en Commission chez J. Brentano, Libraire à Bregence, 1797. In-12 (107 X 173) demi-basane fauve à coins de vélin, dos lisse ornés de filets, rosaces et fleurons dorés, pièce de titre maroquin ocre (reliure de l'époque); (2) ff. de faux-titre et titre, IV-246 pages. Feuillets uniformément roussis. Ex-libris gravé «Du Pac». RARISSIME CONTREFAÇON parue l'année de l'édition originale de ce LIVRE FONDATEUR. C'est le chef-d?oeuvre de Joseph de Maistre: il contient en germe tous les autres ouvrages de l'auteur. Rigoureusement interdit dès sa parution par les autorités françaises, il ne circula que sous le manteau et demeurera anonyme jusqu'à l'édition parisienne de 1821. Notre édition, tout comme l'édition originale publiée à Neuchâtel en avril 1797, et non à Bâle comme affirmé communément, possède la mention fictive de «Londres» sur le titre. UNE ÉDITION INCONNUE DES BIBLIOGRAPHES : imprimé sur vergé fin, notre édition annoncée «en Commission chez J. Brentano, Libraire à Bregence» est inconnue de Monglond, Talvart, Vicaire, Barbier et Clouzot. Monglond évoque seulement une édition publiée en 1802 par Brentano à «Bregenz», qui serait la première édition du XIXe siècle. Le chapitre XII, "Desiderantur", annoncé à la table, n'a jamais paru. Notre édition est strictement identique à l'édition originale: l'avertissement est composé en un corps plus gros que le reste du texte, la faute p. 147 «tyrannie» au lieu de «dynastie» n'a pas été corrigée, contrairement à ce qui avait été fait pour la première réimpression en 246 pages mentionnée par Monglond. Dans notre exemplaire, seule la pagination a été corrigée, car l'édition originale affichait «242 pages» en raison d'une erreur de numérotation page 241, alors qu'elle en contenait bien 246. La seule autre distinction concerne les bois gravés de la page de titre, et ceux présents à la fin de l'avertissement et en tête du chapitre premier: ils sont différents de ceux de l'édition originale, mais aussi de la première réimpression de 1797 en 246 pages. On peut donc estimer que notre édition est la première véritable contrefaçon de l'originale. La mention «en Commission chez J. Brentano, Libraire à Bregence», en bas de la page de titre, reste énigmatique. Nous n'avons trouvé cette mention que sur un seul autre titre: "Défense des Immigrés Français, adressée au Peuple français, du marquis Trophime Gérard Lally-Tollendal", publié en 1797 à Hambourg, chez P. F. Fauche. Or, c?est LouisFauche-Borel, agent royaliste à la solde de la Prusse et de l'Angleterre, qui a publié l'édition originale des "Considérations" en avril 1797. UN BRÛLOT CONTRE-RÉVOLUTIONNAIRE : fils du président du Sénat de Savoie, élevé dans son Chambéry natal, Joseph de MAISTRE (1754-1821) était sarde, et non français. La suppression des Parlements, la réunion de la Savoie à la France et l'exécution de Louis XVI le jetèrent pourtant dans les rangs des adversaires enragés des hommes et des idées de 1789. En 1797, il fit paraître ses "Considérations sur la France" qui enthousiasmèrent les partisans des Bourbons par son analyse en profondeur des causes, du développement et de l'avenir de la Révolution. LIVRE LUCIDE ET PROPHÉTIQUE, servi par un style admirable, il prévoit dans les moindres détails la manière dont se déroulera la Restauration. L'ouvrage produisit une vive et profonde impression sur la haute société européenne, s'inscrivant en faux contre le manifeste de Benjamin Constant en faveur du ralliement à la République. Son espérance d'une résurrection d'un pouvoir charismatique à caractère sacré exercé par un sauveur guidé par Dieu a toujours rencontré des adeptes. Mais cette postérité de l'intolérance a relégué dans les oubliettes de la mémoire collective ces "Considérations" pourtant bien supérieures tant par le style que par sa juste vision de la société française, aux "Soirées de Saint-Pétersbourg". Cette apologie de l'Ancien Régime ouvre la voie aux ultras de la Restauration qui deviendront les

        Flying lemur, an original watercolour sketch for a published print

      - Original pencil, bodycolour and watecolour by Audebert, with details of claws and teeth in pen, ink and wash and pencil above main figure, on laid paper. Fine condition. Sheet size: 21 1/4 x 14 inches. A very fine original watercolour by Audebert: an original of an image that was published in his first great natural history book 'Histoire Naturelle des Singes' (Paris: 1797-1800). Although the present drawing is unsigned, it is clearly by Audebert. This fine watercolour gives some insight into the working methods of one of the most highly respected pioneers of a golden era in natural history publications in France. Audebert, a painter by training, was born at Rochefort. His interest in natural history was stimulated by a commission to help with the preparation of the plates for G. A. Olivier's work on Coleoptera. This drawing is an original for Audebert's Histoire Naturelle des Singes, the only publication of his own work to be completed during his life-time, which was published in ten parts between 1797 and 1800. He died in 1800, in Paris, leaving notes and drawings for a number of other works which were published after his death

G. Silverstolpe, Hans Hierta, Adlerbeth, Franzén, Gyllenborg, Melanderhjelm, C. von Rosenstein och Oxenstierna. Lundstedt I:330b

        Der Baum nach dem Sturm

      1797. Graphit auf Papier, unten links bezeichnet, datiert und signiert: "Gewitter - d - 31 - July - 97 - F. Bolt f.", unten rechts bezeichnet und datiert: "Treptow d 18. August 97", 23,1 x 19,2 cm. In den Sommermonaten des Jahres 1797 durchstreifte Johann Friedrich Bolt mit seinem engen Freund Carl Wilhelm Kolbe die Wälder von Treptow, einem damaligen Randbezirk von Berlin. Auf einem wenige Wochen vor unserer Zeichnung entstandenem Blatt hat Bolt sich und Kolbe festgehalten, wie sie mit Stock und Zeichenmappe unterwegs zu künstlerischen Entdeckungen sind. Bei einer dieser Gelegenheiten entdeckte Bolt die hier gezeichnete Eiche. Porträtähnlich rückt er sie ins Zentrum des Bildes, konzentriert sich ganz auf die diffuse Struktur der Rinde und das wolkenähnliche Blätterwerk, das sich um die fingergliedrig verzweigten Äste gruppiert. Doch neben dieser strukturellen Ästhetik interessierte sich Bolt bei diesem Baum für ein besonderes Phänomen. Eine dünne rote Linie schlängelt sich von der Spitze bis zur Erde um den Baumstamm herum. Die beigegebene Aufschrift entschlüsselt dieses Farbband: Es handelt sich um die Spur eines Blitzes, der sich in die Rinde des Baumes eingegraben hat, entstanden bei einem Gewitter am 31. Juli 1797. Das Interesse für Bäume teilte Bolt mit seinem Wandergefährten Kolbe, auch wenn dessen teils phantastische Überhöhung der Natur in dieser Realitätsskizze nicht zum Tragen kommt. Doch auch hier, in dieser scheinbar wissenschaftlichen Studie, offenbart sich eine über die Ästhetik hinausgehende Bildvorstellung, die die Grundlage für das Interesse an gerade solchen Naturstücken bei Kolbe und Bolt ist. Für Kolbe wurde die Eiche zu einem zentralen Protagonisten in seiner Bildwelt. Über die patriotischen Implikationen hinaus bot ihm das wilde Wachstum eine treffende Metapher für die Urwüchsigkeit der Natur. In Konfrontation mit dem Menschen eröffnete Kolbe so ein Zwiegespräch zwischen Mensch und Natur, das nicht nur als Ausdruck eines irdischen Arkadiens, sondern auch als Positionsbestimmung verstanden werden kann. Der Mensch im Angesicht der stetig fortwachsenden Natur, die nach einem unergründlichen Muster tief verzweigte Wege einschlägt und auch ihre Wunden nicht verbirgt, sondern zu einem Teil ihrer Existenz macht: all dies kann Orientierung, aber auch Mahnung für den Menschen sein. Bolt verzichtet zwar in diesem Blatt auf Figuren oder andere Erzählmomente, vernachlässigt aber doch in dieser Konzentration auf den Baum das über den bloß wissenschaftlichen Aspekt Hinausgehende nicht. In gewisser Weise wird der Betrachter zum Gesprächspartner des Baumes. Die Macht der Natur wird durch die rote Ader, die sich durch den Stamm zieht, anschaulich und so schwingt im nüchtern notierenden Blick auch der Aspekt einer Gegenüberstellung von Mensch und Natur mit. Die Natur als ein Reich, auf das wir keinen Einfluss haben, das wir registrieren können, dem wir aber auch ausgeliefert sind, das uns Schutz geben und gleichzeitig zur Gefahr werden kann.

Lord Byron identified Pope as one of his chief influences; believing his scathing satire of contemporary English literature English Bards and Scotch Reviewers, to be a continuance of Pope's tradition. Edited, with detailed notes by English academic and literary critic, Joseph Warton. His other works include The Enthusiast, or The Lover of Nature, Odes on Various Subjects, and Essay on the Genius and Writings of Pope. Warton divided poets into four classes. Into the first, those who are sublime and pathetic, he placed Spenser, Shakespeare, and Milton (and curiously at proper intervals, Otway and Lee). In the second class were poets who possessed the true poetical genius, in a more moderate degree, but had noble talents for moral and ethical poesy. The third class were men of wit, of elegant taste and some fancy in describing familiar life. The fourth class were mere versifiers, however smooth and mellifluous some of them may be thought. Warton placed Pope at the head of the second class of poets. (DNB)Complete in nine volumes. Condition: In contemporary calf bindings with gilt designs to the spines. Externally, all volumes arerather rubbed, with light wear to the extremities and spines. Eight boards are held by the cords only, with one board being detached. Seven joints are starting.

His 109-volume, literature-for-the-masses Poets of Great Britain Complete from Chaucer to Churchill, which rivaled Samuel Johnson's Lives of the Most Eminent English Poets (1781), was published from 1777 to 1783. Each volume cost just six shillings, at a time when similar volumes usually cost multiple times that. The drawings and illustrations with which Bell adorned his publications influenced later publishers, as did his abandonment of the long 's'. Most notable, perhaps, was Bell's joint-stock organisation of his publishing company, which defied the trade forty dominant publishing companies in order to establish a monopoly on the best publications. In addition to the immense Poets of Great Britain, Bell also published similar volumes on Shakespeare and The British Theatre, as well as the Sunday newspaper Bell's Weekly Messenger, women's magazine La Belle Assemble, and other periodicals. He died in Fulham in 1831. He was the uncle of Edward Bell. He was a mischievous spirit, the very Puck (Shakespeare) of booksellers.

Joints are starting but firm. Internally, generally firmly bound. Pages are generally bright and clean with some scattered light foxing and age-toning. Overall: GOOD..
