MeLville Papers
England: (1797). "Suggestions Respecting the Means of Improving our Connexion with China on the Side of Napaul & Thibet" [Great Britain], 1797. Manuscript memorandum revealing a trade relations strategy for Great Britain to increase access in China, written by an unidentified British colonial administrator or politician who was abreast with the political climate and the leaders in China, Nepal and Tibet. Folio. 16 pages in manuscript, written recto and verso with wide half-page margins, on five double leafs laid watermarked paper made by Whig politician and leading papermaker Clement Taylor in 1796, measuring approximately 20 x 31 cm, and string-tied to upper left margin with a green ribbon. Docketed to verso. Very slight occasional age-toning, otherwise in very good condition, clean and bright, a stellar primary source document. Provenance: From the Melville Papers. Written shortly after the return of Lord Macartney's Embassy to China, most likely by an influential administrator of the East India Company which had a monopoly on East Indies trade including Canton in China, the present memorandum is a proposal for a mission with the same objective of securing increased trade with China - this time by means of a somewhat obliquitous political connection through Nepal and Tibet. The East India Company was both ambitious and persistent with its aim of expanding commerce with the Far East, sparing no expense in sending great missions such as Lord Macartney's, and also chancing more intimate, lesser known missions aimed at reconnaissance or relationship building.

Nogaret, François Félix.
1797. 2 vols. 19, (1), 228 pp. (4), 244 pp. With 2 engr. frontispieces. Both vols. bound without series half-titles; pp. 63/4 and 69/70 of Vol. I bound out of order in the middle of the 'Avertissement'. Bound in matching contemporary mottled calf with gilt trim and initial 'J' with a crown on all covers; all edges gilt. Later red stamp "Bibliothèque du Citoyen Napoleon Buonaparte" on both half-titles. Bindings rubbed and chipped, joints shaken and with leather oddly warped due to fire (see below), but both volumes holding firmly in a pleasant, unrestored state. Rare first edition of this libertine adaptation of an equally colourful Greek author's "letters on love" from the 6th century BC. Calling himself the "French Aristaenetus", Nogaret boasts here that his translation is far superior to that of René le Sage; the Biographie Universelle notes that in addition to the translations, Nogaret adds a number of "letters" of his own to the collection. The present copy has a pleasing provenance, preserved in its original binding of Jérome Buonaparte, youngest brother of Napoleon I; and it may well have survived the great fire of 1871 which destroyed most of the Imperial Library. - "The majority of Aristaenetus's letters are concerned with the description of extramarital affairs; they are full of lovers using every trope of erotic literature to praise their beloveds in over-the-top encomia, paramours hatching complicated schemes to achieve their desires, wily go-betweens who help smooth their way, unfaithful spouses barely avoiding capture in the midst of hair-raising and amusing in … [Click Below for Full Description]

ABBOT, JOHN; SMITH, JAMES EDWARD
T. Bensley for J. Edwards, Cadell and Davies, and J. White, 1797. FIRST EDITION. THE EARLIEST BOOK EVER PUBLISHED ON AMERICAN BUTTERFLIES AND MOTHS; COMPLETE WITH 104 STUNNING HAND-COLORED FOLIO ENGRAVINGS. A BEAUTIFUL COPY IN RIVIERE & SON BINDING. "John Abbot, naturalist and artist, born at Bennet Street, St James, London, on 1 June 1751, was the second of the five children of John Abbot (d. 1787), a prosperous attorney, and his wife, Ann Clousinger. As a youth, Abbot developed a passion for entomology and for drawing, an enthusiasm that was supported by his father, who retained Jacob Bonneau, an accomplished draughtsman, as an art instructor for his son. The elder Abbot also bought illustrated works of natural history, including George Edwards's four-volume classic, A Natural History of Uncommon Birds (1743-51), which exerted a major stylistic influence on his son. The Abbots received as a gift a copy of Mark Catesby's Natural History of Carolina, Florida, and the Bahama Islands (1731-43), a work that probably contributed to Abbot's later decision to move to America. As a teenager, Abbot achieved a remarkable mastery of artistic technique, and by 1770 was invited to exhibit his watercolour drawings of British insects at the Society of Artists of Great Britain, of which he was an honorary member. Apprenticed to his father as a law clerk in 1769, Abbot found that legal matters were 'little to my liking when my thoughts was ingrossed by Natural history'; and in the same year he firmly resolved to pursue natural history as a career, after being awestruck by the vast entomolo … [Click Below for Full Description]

PALMER, Thomas Fyshe.
Cambridge: by Benjamin Flower for W. H. Lunn, J. Deighton, and J. Nicholson, 1797. Octavo in half-sheets (207 x 122 mm). Recent sprinkled calf to style, raised bands gilt to spine, gilt octofoils to compartments, red morocco label, edges dyed yellow, marbled endpapers. Bound without the advertisement leaf. Pale marking to sig. D3. A very good, crisp copy. First edition of this scarce contribution to early Australian convict literature, three copies traced at auction in the last 40 years; ESTC locates three copies in Australasian libraries, at the Alexander Turnbull Library in Wellington, Auckland Museum Library, and the State Library of South Australia. Palmer (1747-1802), a Unitarian minister, was sentenced to seven years' transportation for circulating a controversial handbill, despite support from Charles James Fox, Earl Stanhope and others. "On 11 February 1794 he, William Skirving and Thomas Muir—all three numbered among the reformers known as the 'Scottish martyrs'—were sent on board the Surprise with a gang of convicts to Botany Bay" (ODNB). On the journey Palmer was falsely accused of inciting a mutiny and was confined to his cabin, while other convicts were flogged. The ship arrived at Port Jackson on 25 October and Palmer and his companions, possessing letters of introduction to the governor, were treated well. Palmer's narrative, and the depositions of the ship's surgeon and several members of the New South Wales Corps against Captain Campbell, are all signed Sydney or Port Jackson, 1794, and were edited by Palmer's fellow Unitarian minister Jeremiah Joyce.

l’Imprimerie de Leguay; [NAPOLEON BONAPARTE]
l’Imprimerie de Leguay 1797 - Small broadsheet (2 ll. folio, overall 26.5 x 21.5 cm), uncut. Collates 4 pp. printed on laid paper. Near fine, bright and crisp with only negligible soiling around outer margins. This primary resource in Napoleonic history includes Bonaparte’s announcement, by way of an extraordinary envoy sent from Milan, of the preliminaries that led to the Treaty of Campo Formio in October, 1797. An example of the Napoleonic propaganda apparatus beginning and ending with patriotic military tracts, the broadsheet publishes a “credible” copy, described as circulating in Italy, of the Treaty of Milan signed 27 floréal, an V (May 16, 1797) ending the war of Venice, and the secret articles of the Treaty ceding Milan to Austria. The broadsheet also reports current news dated 23 thermidor (August 10) of the peace negotiated with Portugal, the arrival of letters dated 12 thermidor (July 30) announcing the liberation of Rome, and an account of the status of the negotiation between Malmesbury’s envoy and the French legation in Lille.

Edwards, Bryan
London: Printed for John Stockdale, 1797. [6],xxiii,[1],247pp. plus large folding map. Quarto. Contemporary speckled calf, spine gilt, leather label. Front hinge cracked but holding, extremities lightly worn. Bookplate pasted over on front pastedown. Negligible foxing and soiling. Very good. An important and informative work on the history of Santo Domingo, intended to be a complement to Edwards' extensive writings on the British West Indies. Born in England in 1743, Edwards was a wealthy West Indies planter, merchant, and member of the colonial assembly. Much of this history of Santo Domingo deals with the slave revolts of the early 1790s and the conditions of the local blacks; and though Edwards did not favor the abolition of slavery, he was in favor of a regulation of the slave trade. Several tables give statistics for imports and exports for the island. "The author condemns the French settlers' treatment of the negroes and passes severe judgment upon the former's conduct toward the English who came to aid from Jamaica in 1793. Edwards was opposed to the island's passing under British control and thus competing with the old sugar colonies in the home market" - Ragatz. SABIN 21894. MAGGS BIBLIOTHECA AMERICANA 1210. JCB (1)III:3870. BISSAINTHE 5642. RAGATZ, p.164 (later ed). HARMSWORTH TRUST SALE 1797.

[Lamb, Charles] Samuel Taylor Coleridge and Charles Lloyd
London: Printed by N. Biggs, for J. Cottle, Bristol, and Messrs. Robinsons, 1797. Second edition. Rare presentation copy of the 1797 second edition (much revised by Coleridge and greatly expanded with new poems by both authors). Small octavo, modern three quarter red morocco, raised bands, marbled boards and end-papers, top edge gilt. Early presentation note from Charles Lamb bound in before the title page: "To my dear friend William Hone | Charles Lamb | Oct. 1811." Hone was a literary man and something of an early entrepreneur. One venture, that ultimately ended in failure, was his stint as an antiquarian bookseller. His friendship with Charles Lamb is well-documented. The first edition (and Coleridge's first book of poems), published the previous year, contained Lamb's first published verses. The second edition was published after Coleridge extensively revised his contribution and added a new Preface. Lamb added an additional 10 poems to the second edition (including "Childhood") in addition to the four that were published in the first edition. Two bookplates on the front paste-down, front end-paper cracking. Inscription a bit faded, but easily legible. A lovely copy, with an excellent association. This copy previously sold by Bauman Rare Books.

Young, Edward. Blake, William.
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 calf, black label, marbled boards of the period, verso of final leaf with small ink stain, slight offsetting as often from the plates. Generally a very good copy with the C.A. and V. Baldwin bookplate and ink signature of Virginia Baldwin (Hobart) dated 1902. First edition with Blake's illustrations, complete with the leaf of "Explanations" misbound in after the "Night the First" leaf. 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. Essick and LaBelle, Night Thoughts, Dover, 1975. Bindman, Complete Graphic Works of Blake, 357-379. Ray, The Illustrator and the Book in England, 3. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
