Old repair on bottom fold separation, some scattered tiny holes; otherwise very good plus. This large attractive map of Africa includes in the title description that Franz Ludwig Gussefeld (1744-1807 prepared this map with astronomical observations found on the maps of Sayer, Rennel and Arrowsmith. According to Norwich (see map 112) the German notation in the bottom left further states that accurate geographical knowledge of the interior will only be available after further exploration. No interior settlements are named. Despite the attempt at greater accuracy, many of the larger rivers of central and North Africa are omitted or are shown incorrectly. Still, the map is attractive and colorful. Norwich # 112.

        Metaphysische Anfangsgründe der Tugendlehre (The Metaphysical Foundations of the Theory of Virtue).

      Friedrich Nicolovius, Konigsberg 1797 - TP + [III]-X = Vorrede + [1]-190 + [191] = Verbesserungen, Octavo. First Edition (Warda 176). The second, separately published, part of Kant's Die Metaphysik der Sitten (the first being Metaphysische Anfangsgründe der Rechtslehre [Metaphysical Foundations of the Theory of Rights]). Here without the series half-title that is found in some copies. Just as The Critique of Practical Reason is divided into two parts, so The Metaphysics of Morals has two major sections and purposes. The first deals with jurisprudence or the laws and constitutions of the state while the second addresses the issue of individual morals, the proper duties and responsibilities that each man has toward himself and then towards his fellows. As usual, Kant's project it to explain and defend his theories of what can be laid down a priori - here on the subject of human conduct. This is Kant's further consideration of human virtue which he had first presented in his Groundwork of the Metaphysics of Morals in 1785. In this small book, Kant places particular emphasis on treating humanity as an end in itself and makes significant distinctions between Rights (considered in the first part) and Virtue. He now explains that "virtue" is "the capacity and considered resolve to withstand a strong but unjust opponent.with respect to what opposes the moral dis-position within us". The "opponent" here is, of course, our own inclination to pursue happiness by fulfilling personal pleasures. What ultimately distinguishes virtue from rights is that only virtue can lead us to adopt a moral end (i.e., to make a free rational choice, in conformity with duty): the coercion made possible through the Right may constrain me "to perform actions that are directed as a means to an end, but I can never be constrained by others to have an end; only I myself can make something my end." Rights, therefore, relate to a "narrow" form of obligation focusing on particular actions, whereas virtue relates to "wide obligation" because the moral law "can prescribe only the maxim of actions, not the actions themselves".One of the last works published in his lifetime, this is a typical Kantian tour de force and a defense of his entire life's work. Contemporary mottled pasteboards (a bit worn and rounded on the corners) with a handwritten paper label on the spine (which has noticeably peeled as shown the photo at right). With the blue stamped former owner's name (Oswald Weigel) to the inside of the front cover and a contemporary three-line inked inscription to the top of the front fly leaf and a short stamped line of Hebrew letters lower on that same page. The interior and the text is lightly foxed but otherwise a charmingly unsophisticated copy of this book. ADDITIONAL PHOTOS AVAILABLE UPON REQUEST. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Combats Navals Dediès à Monsieur le Marquis Dom Joseph de Silva Consul Gènèral...

      1797. Affascinante e rara incisione dal particolare schema compositivo raffigurante alcuni combattimenti navali tra cui la celebre battaglia di Genova, che vide scontrarsi le navi da guerra francesi dell'Ammiraglio Pierre Martin con quelle inglesi e napoletane comandate da William Hotman tra i cui comandanti vi era Horatio Nelson. Proprio la raffigurazione centrale si riferisce agli scontri avvenuti sulle acque difronte a Genova del 14 marzo 1795, quando Nelson condusse alcune navi inglesi ad attaccare le navi francesi Ca Ira e Censeur.Lo scontro si concluse con la vittoria degli Inglesi che riuscirono così a scongiurare il tentativo della flotta francese di occupare la Corsica, allora in mano inglese. Ottima conservazione, bella coloritura coeva all'acquerello.

        Metaphysische Anfangsgründe der Rechtslehre.

      Königsberg, Friedrich Nicolovius (gedruckt bei Christian Friedrich Solbrig in Leipzig), 1797. - 8vo. XII, LII, (53)-235, (1) pp. Contemporary ochre-coloured boards with spine label. All edges red. First edition, independently published as the first part of Kant's "Metaphysik der Sitten" (followed by the second part, "Die Metaphysischen Anfangsgründe der Tugendlehre", later the same year). "Kant's final, detailed account of ethics" (cf. Ueberweg III, 540) is considered the sum of the Kantian philosophy of law; on it Kantian scholarship has based its interpretation of Kant's thinking about right and wrong (cf. Ritter, Der Rechtsgedanke Kants). The present copy does not include the series title which (according to Natorp, Akademie-Ausgabe) was obviously pasted before the finished book belatedly, but contains the errata and the colophone not present in all copies (cf. Warda, p. 61, note 18). - Binding somewhat rubbed and duststained; corners bumped. Paper somewhat browned as usual, with occasional light staining. Provenance: from the collection of the Göttingen historian Georg Friedrich Sartorius von Waltershausen (1765-1828) with his handwritten ownership "Sartorius" in ink to the front pastedown. In 1809 Goethe was godfather to Sartorius's second son, the later geologist Wolfgang Sartorius, a close friend of Gauss. Warda 171. Adickes 90. Akademie-Ausg. VI, 518ff.

        Carte d'une partie du Gran Ocean a l'E. et.SE. de la Nouvelle Guinee.

      Paris: , 1797. Size: 490 x 340 mm. Copper engraving. Hand coloured. Good condition. Watermark, slight browning and an old repair to the central fold. Good margins. Interesting chart of part of the south-western Pacific, showing the routes taken by the Spanish explorer Don Francisco Antonio Maurelle in 1781 along the northern coast of New Guinea and across the Pacific to Fiji and Tonga. Maurelle was credited with the discovery of the Hermit Islands on this voyage. The map includes the north-eastern coast of Australia, and parts of the coast of New Guinea. The map shows the 1781 route of his ship "The Princesa" through the Bismarck Archipelago north of New Guinea, through the Archipel de Salomos [i.e. Solomon Islands] and then east across the Pacific to the Iles de Amis [i.e. the Friendly Islands, now Tonga] where he discovered I. Vavao [ i.e. Vava'u] with one of the best anchorages in the South Pacific. The map includes the Iles de Navigateurs [i.e. Samoa], I. Fidji [i.e. Fiji], Iles de Esprit [i.e. Vanuatu or the New Hebrides Isles], and Nouvelle Caledonie [i.e. New Caledonia]. Many small islands are depicted with notes regarding their sightings by Abel Tasman, William Bligh and Maurelle. A note on the chart states that the publisher has placed the islands according to the longitude of other navigators, rather than on Maurelle's figures which were considered estimates only, and also, that Maurelles chart was based on a French chart by Jacques Nicolas Bellin published in 1742. The French cartographers at the time did not consider the Spanish charts to be sufficiently accurate, so they preferred to make their own corrections.

Bindings are all firm and strong. Very Rare Edition ! Exlibris / Bookplate from Ex. Bibliotecha Warclanensi in each volume to pastedown engraved by S. Halle. Jacques le fataliste et son maître. Précédé d'un hommage aux mânes de l'auteur par M. Meister de Zurich The main subject of the book is the relationship between the valet Jacques and his master, who is never named. The two are traveling to a destination the narrator leaves vague, and to dispel the boredom of the journey Jacques is compelled by his master to recount the story of his loves. However, Jacques's story is continually interrupted by other characters and various comic mishaps. Other characters in the book tell their own stories and they, too, are continually interrupted. There is even a "reader" who periodically interrupts the narrator with questions, objections, and demands for more information or detail. The tales told are usually humorous, with romance or sex as their subject matter, and feature complex characters indulging in deception. Jacques's key philosophy is that everything that happens to us down here, whether for good or for evil, has been written up above" ("tout ce qui nous arrive de bien et de mal ici-bas était écrit là-haut"), on a "great scroll" that is unrolled a little bit at a time. Yet Jacques still places value on his actions and is not a passive character. Critics such as J. Robert Loy have characterized Jacques's philosophy as not fatalism but determinism. The book is full of contradictory characters and other dualities. One story tells of two men in the army who are so much alike that, though they are the best of friends, they cannot stop dueling and wounding each other. Another concerns Father Hudson, an intelligent and effective reformer of the church who is privately the most debauched character in the book. Even Jacques and his master transcend their apparent roles, as Jacques proves, in his insolence, that his master cannot live without him, and therefore it is Jacques who is the master and the master who is the servant. The story of Jacques's loves is lifted directly from Tristram Shandy, which Diderot makes no secret of, as the narrator at the end announces the insertion of an entire passage from Tristram Shandy into the story. Throughout the work, the narrator refers derisively to sentimental novels and calls attention to the ways in which events develop more realistically in his book. At other times, the narrator tires of the tedium of narration altogether and obliges the reader to supply certain trivial details. (Wikipedia) Denis Diderot (5 October 1713 – 31 July 1784) was a French philosopher, art critic, and writer. He was a prominent figure during the Enlightenment and is best known for serving as co-founder, chief editor, and contributor to the Encyclopédie along with Jean le Rond d'Alembert. Diderot's literary reputation during his lifetime rested primarily on his plays and his contributions to the Encyclopédie; many of his most important works, including Jacques the Fatalist, Rameau's Nephew, Paradox of the Actor, and D'Alembert's Dream, were published only after his death. Denis Diderot was born in Langres, Champagne, and began his formal education at a Jesuit collège in Langres. His parents were Didier Diderot (1685–1759) a cutler, maître coutelier, and his wife Angélique Vigneron (1677–1748). Three of five siblings survived to adulthood, Denise Diderot (1715–1797) and their youngest brother Pierre-Didier Diderot (1722–1787), and finally their sister Angélique Diderot (1720–1749). According to Arthur McCandless Wilson, Denis Diderot greatly admired his sister Denise, sometimes referring to her as "a female Socrates". In 1732 Denis Diderot earned the Master of Arts degree in philosophy. Then he entered the Collège d'Harcourt of the University of Paris. He abandoned the idea of entering the clergy and decided instead to study at the Paris Law Faculty. His study of law was short-lived however and in 1734 Diderot decided to become a writer. Because of his refusal to enter one of the learned professions, he was disowned by his father, and for the next ten years he lived a bohemian existence. In 1742 he befriended Jean-Jacques Rousseau. In 1743 he further alienated his father by marrying Antoinette Champion (1710–1796), a devout Roman Catholic. The match was considered inappropriate due to Champion's low social standing, poor education, fatherless status, and lack of a dowry. She was about three years older than Diderot. The marriage in October 1743 produced one surviving child, a girl. Her name was Angélique, after both Diderot's dead mother and sister. The death of his sister, a nun, from overwork in the convent may have affected Diderot's opinion of religion. She is assumed to have been the inspiration for his novel about a nun, La Religieuse, in which he depicts a woman who is forced to enter a convent where she suffers at the hands of the other nuns in the community. Diderot had affairs with Mlle. Babuti (who would marry Greuze), Madeleine de Puisieux, Sophie Volland and Mme de Maux. His letters to Sophie Volland are known for their candor and are regarded to be "among the literary treasures of the eighteenth century". Though his work was broad as well as rigorous, it did not bring Diderot riches. He secured none of the posts that were occasionally given to needy men of letters; he could not even obtain the bare official recognition of merit which was implied by being chosen a member of the Académie française. When the time came for him to provide a dowry for his daughter, he saw no alternative than to sell his library. When Empress Catherine II of Russia heard of his financial troubles she commissioned an agent in Paris to buy the library. She then requested that the philosopher retain the books in Paris until she required them, and act as her librarian with a yearly salary. Between October 1773 and March 1774, the sick Diderot spent a few months at the empress's court in Saint Petersburg. Diderot died of pulmonary thrombosis in Paris on 31 July 1784, and was buried in the city's Église Saint-Roch. His heirs sent his vast library to Catherine II, who had it deposited at the National Library of Russia. He has several times been denied burial in the Panthéon with other French notables, but the French government did recently announce the possibility of memorializing him in this fashion, on the 300th anniversary of his birth (October 2013). This idea seems to have been shelved. (Wikipedia)

        Remarks on the Arabian Night's Entertainments; in which the Origin of Sindbad's Voyages, and other Oriental Fictions, is particularly considered.

      London: T. Cadell & W. Davies, 1797. Octavo, uncut, single leaf errata; in period style half red morocco. Influential study of the tales of Sindbad and their relation to the imaginary voyage.The poet and antiquary Hole (1746-1803) was a founding member of the Exeter Literary Society, to which he originally delivered this address on the question of historical antecedents to the Oriental tale. Although he begins sceptically, by the end he has talked himself around until he is seized by the belief that 'the narrative had a basis in truth' (DNB). The historian of the imaginary voyage Gove gives the work especial credit as one of the most 'valuable to the study of Sindbad as an imaginary voyage.'. A few spots but very good.

        The Complaint and the Consolation; or, Night Thoughts.

      Large 4to. London: R. Noble, 1797. Large 4to, viii, [1], 95, [2] pages; with 43 full-page engravings by Blake after his own designs surrounding the letterpress text. Half black morocco, marbled boards, a bit worn, internally very good despite some offsetting or show-through from the plates. First edition with Blake’s illustrations, complete with the leaf of “Explanations”. Essick and LaBelle explain in their commentary how Blake, virtually in a frenzy, completed 537 watercolor designs when he was commissioned by the publisher Edwards to illustrate Young’s masterpiece. Edwards issued only the first four “Nights” (or sections) and had Blake etch and engrave 43 plates to test the market. The response must have been poor since no further engravings were requested of Blake and Edwards ceased business shortly thereafter. Ironically, today the poet Young, once compared with Shakespeare and Milton, is largely forgotten save for this edition. Colored copies are known in two palettes, the earlier of which may have been colored under Blake’s direction. Bentley, Blake Books, 515. Easson and Essick, William Blake Book Illustrator, vol. 1, IV.

        A Narrative of the Sufferings of T.F. Palmer, and W. Skirving, during a voyage to New South Wales, 1794, on board the Surprise transport..

      Cambridge: Benjamin Flower, 1797. In very good condition.. Octavo, xii, 13-80pp. (last page advertisements), bookplate of F.G. Coles; originally stitch-sewn with the marks visible in the gutter, very good in polished tan half calf by Sangorski, red spine label. Second edition, revised and expanded with a newly printed letter to Governor Hunter: the most detailed and important eighteenth-century account of life on board a convict ship, written by a political thinker considered 'probably the most cultured of those who came to New South Wales in the early years of settlement' (ADB).This rare account was written by one of the famous Scottish Martyrs. Unlike the more commonly seen accounts of the trials of the Martyrs published in Scotland in the earlier 1790s, this work is a detailed description of the troubled voyage of the Surprise, a convict vessel sent to New South Wales in 1794. The account includes fascinating letters and petitions sent by Palmer and his colleagues from Sydney Cove.'Contains the story of the inhuman treatment of Palmer and Skirving by Captain Campbell, master of the Surprise, following the malicious discovery, by [Scottish Martyr] Maurice Margarot, a fellow convict, of a sham plot for capturing the ship. Depositions of the surgeon and members of the New South Wales Corps against Campbell are included' (Ferguson). Influenced by the strong anti-Jacobin feelings of the time, Palmer and Skirving were alleged to have tried to seize the ship and sail it to France. In Sydney Palmer became a much-respected merchant and advocate for exploration. This narrative was taken back to England by Surgeon John White and prepared for publication by Palmer's friend, Jeremiah Joyce.This second edition is printed from the same formes as the first (with the minor addition of a footnote to the preface), but is important for the addition of the concluding six pages, "A Letter from Messrs. Muir, Palmer, and Skirving, to Governor Hunter" dated 14 October 1795, and also printing a note of receipt forwarded by David Collins. Perhaps rather overlooked, it should take its place among other great convict publications such as George Thompson's Slavery and Famine (1794), Thomas Watling's fabulously rare Letters from an Exile (1794), and Thomas Muir's Histoire de la tyrannie (1798). Provenance: The F.G. Coles copy, with bookplate, sold in 1965 for £80; private collection (Sydney).
