        Collection of early American engravings, including "The Death of Captain Cook", with other Cook related engravings, in a bound collection

      Hardcover. A bound volume of engraved plates and maps of different sizes, assembled from a late 18th century French two volume encyclopedia, as well as from early American printed sources, including the Massachusetts Magazine and Cook's Three Voyages to the Pacific Ocean (Boston 1797). The owner, Jacob Ulman, whose bookplate adorns the inside front board, had an interest in astronomy, maps of the world, cannon, Capt. James Cook and Boston, where he is recorded as having married in 1825, worked as a housewright, and is buried in Cambridge, Massachusetts in Mount Auburn Cemetery. & & Samuel Hill (ca. 1765 - 1809) was a Boston engraver of the late 18th century whose engravings were published in the Massachusetts Magazine; Defoe's New Robinson Crusoe (1790); the American Universal Geography (1796); and Cook's Three Voyages to the Pacific Ocean (1797). Other engravings by Hill in this compilation include: An East View of the New Meeting House in Hollis St., Boston; Baltimore Oriole (bird); Cobb's Field Piece (cannon); Bird Catching at Orkney. Other American engravers mentioned in Stauffer's "American Engravers Upon Copper and Steel' include T. Wightman, (his engraving of a tool & gears is not listed in Stauffer) and A. M. Peasley "Patent Corn Sheller"; Hooker, "Annual Motion of the Earth around the Sun, publ. in Newburyport Mass/ publ. by Edmund M. Blunt 1807, with orig. hand color& & The "Death of Captain James Cook " was one of the iconic images of the 18th century. Cook, already a successful navigator, was immortalized after his death at the hands of Hawaiian natives at Kealakekua Bay. Most likely from the Boston 1797 edition of Cook's Three Voyages, it measures 5 1/4 x 3 1/2", with "S. Hill sc." at the lower right. Two other engravings from the same work included are "Omai, a Native of Otaheite, who resided in England under the Patronage of Government upwards of Two Years". Omai (Mai, ca.1751 - 1780) was a Pacific Islander who had served as translator for Captain Cook on his 2nd & 3rd voyages, and was the physical embodiment of the "noble savage" in London society for a time. (3 x 5 1/2") & "A War Canoe of New Zealand " (with "A Branch of the Bread fruit" suspended in the sky above the canoe ( 4 7/8 x 3 1/4", trimmed to the right, no engraver listed). .& & The early engravings, from a French work, are astronomical in subject, and later include a series of maps; a double hemisphere folding world map, showing Australia as "N.le & Hollande", by Tardieu aine"; Europe, Asia, France, Africa and "Amerique Septentrionale" of North America. These measure approx. 8 1/2 x 7 1/4". The volume includes a total of 35 plates with many folding maps, astronomical plates, illustrations of mechanical devices, ornithological plates, and others. Small 8vo, contemporary dark sheep covers, gilt rules at spine, edges a little rubbed. A few plates toned, some with small closed tears repaired, otherwise very good.

        A Topographical Description of the Western Territory of North America: Containing a Succinct Account of Its Climate, Natural History, Population, Agriculture, Manners and Customs, with an Ample Description of the Several Divisions Into Which that Country

      London: J. Debrett, 1797. 8vo., (8 x 5 inches). Folding engraved "A Map of the Western Part of the Territories belonging to the United States of America" (small tear at mount), "A Plan of the Rapids of Ohio", "A Map of the State of Kentucky" (short closed tear near mount), "A Map of the Tennassee Government, formerly part of North Carolina" (lacking blanks A2 and Ss2). Modern tan calf backed, marbled paper boards, gilt, antique. Third and best edition, first published in London in 1792. "In its final 1797 form, embodying many original narratives and the entire works of Filson and Hutchins, this work gave the most complete information on the trans-Alleghany region available at the end of the 18th century" (Howes). In 1783 Imlay began acquiring paper claims to tens of thousands of acres in Kentucky, he became a deputy county surveyor, and became acquainted with such western country celebrities as Daniel Boone and James Wilkinson. However his speculations soon landed him in trouble and by 1784 he was the defendant in court actions seeking payment for bonds and notes in his name. He fled Kentucky the next year and probably never returned. Where he went is uncertain, but by 1787 he had left America. "A Topographical Description of the Western Territory of North America", was published in London in 1792. The title-page elevates him from surveyor to "Commissioner for laying out Lands in the Back Settlements". Most of the book consists of letters that form a "promotional description that tends to lack intimacy of observation despite the pretense that the author had grown up in the back settlements. Footnotes by an anonymous "editor" often contribute more substantial information than that found in the text. The letters referred to other authors' accounts and may have drawn on still others without attribution. Second and third editions of the book in 1793 and 1797 appended lengthy tracts from John Filson, Thomas Hutchins, and other sources. Despite the limited amount of original material, the work was well known to those interested in the North American interior" (James P. McClure for ANB).

        An Historical Survey of the French Colony in the Island of St. Domingo: Comprehnding A Short Account of its Ancient Government, Political State, Population, Productions, and Exports

      London: John Stockdale, 1797. 4to (11 3/8" x 9") [6], xxiii, [1], 247pp., large folding map (a few leaves extended at bottom with thin archival tape). Modern half calf, red calf spine label with gilt lettering. Provenance: perforated library stamp of Minnesota Historical Society on title page, withdrawn stamp on verso. Edwards immigrated to Jamaica in 1759 to live with his wealthy uncle at the age of sixteen. Here he became an eminent plantation owner, merchant and member of the Colonial Assembly. Edwards familiarized himself well with the political and mercantile workings of many islands in the West Indies and fought hard battles in the face of the British and French governing bodies to allow free trade with America. Farming such valuable crops as tobacco, cacao, sugar, ginger, coffee and cotton, Edwards realized the wealth he and his fellow merchants were being deprived of by the trade embargo with the newly independent United States. Writing several other treatises on the subject, Edwards became a potent advocate for free trade in the West Indies. Those issues are touched upon in this volume, but it is primarily concerned with the slave revolution that erupted on that island in 1791 and the harsh treatment of the natives Edwards witnessed there. A few tables illustrate products manufactured on the island that were exported to France. Upon his return to England, Edwards became a member of the British Parliament, where he carried on his campaign to allow free trade between America and the West Indies. Generally a very good, clean untrimmed copy, complete with large fold out map of the island of Santo Domingo. Sabin 21894; Parry Short History of the West Indies pp. 143, 74.

        A History of a Voyage to the Coast of Africa and Travels into the Interior of that Country; Containing Particular Descriptions of the Climate and Inhabitants, and Interesting Particulars Concerning the Slave Trade

His sensational narrative, which is one of the earliest accounts of an African voyage by an American, was reportedly written to support him after disease contracted on the journey left him blind.

PROVENANCE: Amédée Rigaud (1819-1874), circular bookplate, black paper gilt with leafy initial R, motto “bona fide sine fraude,” paper shelfmark label headed “Paris”; Sir David Lionel Salomons (1851-1925), bookplate***& & A flawless copy of this illustrated edition of Narcisse, the masterpiece of the short-lived, gentle poet and Latinist whose profound knowledge of Virgil contributed to the “gift of imagery, sense of rhythm, and limpidity of style” for which he was later celebrated (Grente). This edition contains reduced reverse copies of the engravings of the first edition, published posthumously in 1769. With it is bound another neoclassical exercise, the most successful work of the Nîmois poet Imbert, illustrated with reduced copies of the plates from the first edition (1772). & & F. Doll, active ca. 1796/98 to after 1830, was reputed to be Napoleon’s favorite binder. The binding probably dates to his early career, when he was still strongly influenced by Bozérian jeune, with whom he is thought to have apprenticed. The finishing recalls Bozérian, particularly the “mille-points” spine decoration, rendered here by means of block stamps rather than individual tools. & & Fine copy from the collections of two distinguished bibliophiles. Cohen-de Ricci 672 and 507. Cf. Ramsden, French Bookbinders 1789-1848, pp. 72-73.& &

        The situation of His Mtys. Ship Blanche, of 32 Guns & 180 Men, & the French Frigate La Pique, of 40 Guns & 400 Men, at a quarter past 5 o'Clock in the Morning, about a quarter of an hour before the Pique surrendered, having been towed in that way near 3 hours and a half, and having made frequent attempts to board the Blanche without success

      London: Published by Js. Bretherton, 1 January 1797. Hand-coloured aquatint by C. Rosenberg after Orde. 15 3/4 x 20 1/8 inches. The second of a pair of images of the `longest and most determined engagement ever fought' (Parker) `The Blanche frigate, Captain R. Faulknor, while off Pointe-à-Pitre, Guadaloupe, on... [4 January 1795], engaged the French frigate Pique. The fight having lasted an hour, the Pique fouled the Blanche, and the Frenchman made several attempts to board, but each time gallantly repulsed. Then the English sailors lashed the bowsprit of the Pique to the stump of the Blanche's mainmast, and towed her before the wind. To bring more guns into play, part of the stern of the main deck of the Blanche was blown out, but it was not until the action had lasted seven hours... that the Pique surrendered.'

        I ROMANI NELLA GRECIA (Ejemplar muy raro)

      Imprenta de Félix de Cassas y Hermanos Martínez (invención), Málaga (Venecia) 1797 - 17x11, 60p, leve oxidación. Sexta edición del libro anti-napoleónico escrito por Vittorio Barzoni, en la que se satiriza la invasión de la República de Venecia por parte del ejército francés. Tras la ocupación de la República de Venecia, por parte del ejercito napoleónico, se extendió el desengaño entre muchos intelectuales, al comprobar que esta invasión por parte del "Corso" no serviría para la deseada "unificación" de los pueblos italianos, si no como canje de territorios entre franceses y austriacos. La invasión provocó el duro enfrentamiento entre el pueblo y los invasores, contra los cuales Vittorio Barzoni desarrollaría una dura campaña de repulsa, utilizando sus medios, tanto la escritura como la política. Barzoni, ideólogo y partidario de la unificación italiana en una sola República, decidió escribir en el año 1797 esta obra, en la que se compara a los franceses con la arrogancia del Imperio romano, y a los italianos con la sabiduría y fortaleza del pueblo griego. Para evitar las fuertes represalias que ejecutaban los dirigentes franceses, aparecen todas las ediciones de "I romani nella Grecia", como obra anónimas, y otro punto de camuflaje para evitar la localización del lugar de impresión, es que siempre se indica el lugar de edición fuera del territorio veneciano. Todos los ejemplares llevan en su portada la firma de la imprenta de F. Rovington y G Rovinson, sita en St. James street. Londres, dirección nada casual dada la necesidad de ubicar la edición en un lugar hostil a Francia y lejano a Venecia, para evitar las persecuciones.Esta sexta edición, es la más breve de todas las publicadas, con solo 60 páginas, 27 menos que el resto de ediciones, cosa tampoco casual, dada la necesidad de aprovechar el papel al máximo posible, para editar el mayor número de ejemplares y con mayor rapidez, lo que consiguen reduciendo los tipos y abreviando algo el libro. También se varía el lugar de impresión, ubicándolo en la Imprenta de Félix de Cassas y hermanos Martínez, en la ciudad de Málaga, datos todos ellos inventados ya que tal imprenta nunca existió. España país aliado a finales del siglo XVIII con Napoleón era un lugar fácil para desviar la vigilancia que se sufría en la invadida Republica de Venecia.

        Fishermen Returning to Brighton

      - London: Published by P. J. de Loutherbourg, and Sold by V. & R. Green, No 14 Percy Street, Bedford Square, July 1, 1797. Coloured aquatint. Printed on wove paper, watermarked 1794. In excellent condition. Image size: 9 1/2 x 15 3/4 inches. 11 11/16 x 17 1/2 inches. 13 1/16 x 19 inches. A wonderful early, separately published impression of Loutherbourg's celebrated image of fishermen on Brighton Beach. This delicate aquatint is an early, separately published state of a print which was later included in Phillip Jacques Loutherbourg's seminal work "Picturesque Scenery of Great Britain." The print, which was re-engraved in 1801 by J. C. Stadler, was enlarged and re-titled "Brighthelmstone, Fishermen Returning." This early example of Loutherbourg's work wonderfully shows his skill as an artist. The composition and arrangement of the image provides a fluidity to the picture that is truly compelling, and demonstrates Loutherbourg's abilities as a draftsman. The son of a court painter in Darmstadt, the versatile artist Philippe Jacques Loutherbourg was born in Fulda, Germany and was a pupil of J. H. Tischbein and Carle Vanloo and Francis Casanova the elder in Paris. His romantic landscapes, battle scenes, portraits, and biblical subjects were highly esteemed and lauded by influential colleagues such as Diderot. He frequently exhibited at the Salon and became a venerated member of the Académie Royale in 1767. In 1771, he moved to England, where he was employed as the principal scenery designer at London's Drury Lane Theatre. His creative and minutely detailed sets revolutionized the genre of scene painting, and he soon began dabbling in costume design. Loutherbourg once again astounded contemporaries in 1782 with his pioneering invention of the "Eidophusikon," a novel variety of moving panorama that was accompanied by music. His substantial and varied oeuvre also included book illustrations and a series of aquatints of British scenery that was published in 1801 and 1805. Aside from a brief trip to Switzerland in 1782, he remained in London for the duration of his life and became heavily engrossed in mysticism. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Bell's British Theatre, consisting of the most esteemed English plays

      London,: George Cawthorn, 1797.. 34 volumes, 16mo., engravings; a fine and handsome set in contemporary sprinkled calf, full blue morocco spines richly gilt. A most handsome set of collected plays by the famous publisher Bell, 'the mischievous spirit, the very Puck of booksellers' (DNB).This fine collection includes many of the most famous plays by authors such as Milton, Goldsmith, Jonson, Congreve, and Mrs. Griffiths. It was originally issued in 1776-77 as a serious attack on the monopoly exerted by a group of London booksellers calling themselves "the trade". Bell was a consummate bookseller, and his small, tasteful volumes were renowned both for ease of reading (his major innovation was the discarding of the long 's') and lavish illustration. Each play was issued with a frontispiece of a famous actor in a rhetorical pose from the play, as well as another of a suitably dramatic scene. This attention to design confirmed and enhanced the popular success of the series.The fact that each play is also prefaced by a brief commentary and biography of the author, the latter designed, at least in part, as moral corrective to the reader, hence the DNB entry on Bell: 'pioneer in that kind of publication so much in vogue in later days, by which the multitude is taught to feel an interest in the best literature by means of prints and illustrations executed by good artists.'.

        Catalogue des Livres rares et précieux composant le Fonds de Librairie de feu le C. Belin Junior, Libraire

      Dont la vente se fera...le Lundi 22 Mai 1797 et jours suivans. x, 279 pp. 8vo, cont. half-vellum & paste-paper boards (spine soiled), uncut. Paris: G. De Bure, Le Jeune, & Glaizot, 1797. A remarkable copy of this important sale, rich in natural history. Our copy contains not only the prices but the buyers' names (finding buyers' names in a French auction catalogue of this period is most unusual). The buyers include some of the greatest dealers of the period: Debure, Renouard, Brunet, Chardin, and Huzard. Additionally, two further cahiers have been inserted at the end of the catalogue. The first -- 17 leaves -- contains further buyers' names, some calculations, and a list of books purchased by Belin's firm. The second cahier -- 36 leaves including some blanks -- contains bibliographical notes regarding books in various sales. Belin Junior, who apparently died young, was one of the leading booksellers and auctioneers of his time and he had an enormous stock. This sale consists of duplicates (and oftentimes triplicates) from his inventory. It is remarkable to see how many important books an 18th-century bookseller could accumulate. 2894 lots. Belin was associated with the sales of the libraries of Dincourt d'Hangard, Mirabeau, and Didot. Very good copy. As is often the case, this copy lacks the separately issued and paginated author index. A few leaves with tears but with no loss. From the library of Jean Viardot. ❧ BnF, Catalogue de libraires 1473-1810, 328. Grolier Club, Printed Catalogues of French Book Auctions...1643-1830, 370. Peignot, p. 80. .
