Period full mottled calf binding, smooth spine gilt ruled into compartments with contrasting morocco title label. Stipple engraved portrait frontis by Samuel Hill and published by Nancrede (see Stauffer).

[Scheetz, Jacob?]
1798. Folio, approx. 340pp. Boards lacking, leather spine partly perished, cracked and worn, first page of manuscript notes is detached. The names of both Jacob Scheetz and John Schuetz appear in the margins of the text, and the date '1798' is mentioned in some of the subject headers. Calculations are done in pounds. A faint rubber stamp appears in the lower margin on the first page: "Geo. H. Scheetz, General Merchandise, Kellers Church, PA, Feb. 10, 1904," presumably a descendant of the original owner. The student scribe records definitions for several mathematical terms including interest, brokage [sic], compound interest, rebate or discount, equation of payments, barter, loss & gain, single fellowship, inverse proportion, double rule of three, fractions, vulgar fractions, arithmetical and geometrical progression, mensurating of superficies, etc. Many of the word problems relate to merchants, purchases or sales. Calculations and solutions are shown. There are small, neat illustrations in the geometry section. A nice example of an early American student exercise book. The owner was likely a member of the Scheetz family, immigrants to Bucks County, Pennsylvania in the 18th century. George H. Scheetz, whose stamp appears on the first page of the text was the grandson of George Scheetz (1785-1863) who settled in Kellers Church, Pennsylvania around 1820, and was a school teacher. Some family genealogies state that he had several brothers, including Johannes and Jacob.

Philadelphia: Printed for Benjamin Davies, 1798. xii, [7], 342, xxiv pp. Folding table. Octavo (8-1/4" x 5"). Contemporary tree sheep, lettering piece and gilt fillets to spine, neat early repair to head of spine. Negligible light rubbing to boards, moderate rubbing to extremities, minor chipping to spine ends, some wear to corners, partial crack in text block between front endleaf and half-title. Moderate toning to text, brief early annotations and struck-thought signature to preliminaries. Item housed is lightly shelfworn cloth slipcase with calf accents at head and foot of opening. An appealing copy. * Only American edition. Colquhoun was a tireless reformer and public-minded citizen. First published in London in 1796, his treatise on criminology offered innovative proposals, such as the appointment of public prosecutors and paid magistrates, productive labor by convicts and a system of preventative police. This Philadelphia imprint was a response to the keen interest in this subject among elite circles of reformers and legislators in America. Their efforts were reflected in Philadelphia's Eastern State Penitentiary, New York's Auburn Prison and Livingston's penal code. Cohen, Bibliography of Early American Law 1010.

O'Connor, Arthur / Lord Castlereagh / James Coigly / [Hugh Mc Mahon (Armagh)].
Three Volumes in One. London, Printed and Sold by all the Booksellers, 1798. Octavo. [4], 110, [16], 50, 63 pages. Disbound [Bookblock only without the original binding]. The bookblock firm. Some minor staining. A little dusty and with a faded dampstain to lower corner. Name of preowner Hugh McMahon of Armagh, dated „1800" in ink on the titlepage. An extremely rare, rather scarce compilation and a rare find for all collectors of material related to the United Irishmen. Arthur O'Connor (4 July 1763 - 25 April 1852), was a United Irishman and later a general in Napoleon's army. Born near Bandon, County Cork, O'Connor embraced the Republican movement early on as he was encouraged by the American Revolution overseas. From 1790 to 1795 he was a Member of Parliament in the Irish House of Commons for Philipstown. The Irish House of Commons was part of the colonial parliament that sat in College Green. O'Connor was also a member of the Kildare Street Club in Dublin. His brother Roger O'Connor, author of the Chronicles of Eri, shared his politics. His two other brothers were pro-British loyalists. In 1796 he became a member of the Society of United Irishmen. He and Lord Edward Fitzgerald petitioned France for aid in support of an Irish revolution. While traveling to France he was arrested alongside Father James Coigly, a Catholic priest, and three other United Irishmen. Coigly, who found to be carrying an incriminating letter, was hanged, whereas O'Connor was acquitted. He was re-arrested immediately and imprisoned at Fort George in Scotland along with his brother Roger. O'Connor w … [Click Below for Full Description]

SOCIETY FOR BETTERING THE CONDITION OF THE POOR.
Printed for the Society, by W. Bulmer & Co. 1798/1800. xxiv, 298pp; [8], 368, 4pp. 12mo. Vol. II concludes with 'Process of making bread with all the bran added, .', a four-page pamphlet with 'S' in the direction-line on p.1, which was probably intended for issue with this volume. One gathering in Vol. I heavily foxed, otherwise in good clean condition, some browning to e.ps & pastedowns. Contemporary half sprinkled calf, gilt banded spines, red & dark green gilt morocco labels, marbled boards. Ownership name of Henry Wastell, 1800 at head of each titlepage - possibly Henry Wastell, surgeon, a member of the Medical Society of London. v.g. ESTC N55144, 5 copies in the UK; 4 copies in North America, 1 in Germany; ESTC T218747, 6 copies in the UK; 1 copy in America, 1 in Germany. The reports were edited by Sir Thomas Bernard, 1750-1818, one of the originators of the cooperative movement in England, and a noted philanthropist who, with Wilberforce and others, founded in 1796 the Society for Bettering the Condition and increasing the Comforts of the Poor. Among the immediate results of his recommendations was the formation, in 1800, of a school for the indigent blind, and in 1801 of the Fever Institution. He also promoted vaccination, and campaigned for protecting children in cotton mills and as the apprentices of chimney-sweeps. The reports were first issued in separate, and slightly larger format, 1798-1814, and also in this slightly smaller sized 'second edition', which according to a footnote in the preface appear to contain some updated information since their first printin … [Click Below for Full Description]

LOUVRE)
1798. 2 p.l., viii, 118 pp. Small 8vo (153 x 100 mm.), cont. pink paste-paper boards (spine sunned), green morocco lettering-piece on spine. Paris: L'Imprimerie des Sciences et Arts, 1798. The scarce catalogue recording the paintings seized from Lombardy by the French army. This proved to be an extremely contentious exhibition in France because upon the arrival of the paintings, French experts decided to restore nearly all of them. "During this hectic period, with works of art coming and going in large numbers, a controversy of major proportions erupted over the way the [Louvre] was run and in particular over the conduct of restorations...Exacerbating already serious accusations made in the most public of forums was the heavy burden of responsibility attending foreign conquest. The systematic confiscation of art had aroused widespread indignation, especially with respect to Italy, which for centuries had been looked upon as Europe's museum and the high point of the Grand Tour. Even Frenchmen protested Bonaparte's spoliation of Italy... "Paintings were grouped under artists, who were listed alphabetically, as had become the norm. Where relevant the pictures were described 'in chronological order.' The same perhaps applied to their arrangement in the Salon, though as before visual symmetry may have compromised pedagogic concerns"-McClellan, pp. 131 & 134. This livret extensively describes 142 paintings by the great artists of Italy, such as Albani, the Carracci, Correggio, Guercino, Guido Reni, da Vinci, Cortona, Raphael, Tintoretto, Titian, etc. For each … [Click Below for Full Description]

Scheetz, Jacob?]
1798. Folio, approx. 340pp. Boards lacking, leather spine partly perished, cracked and worn, first page of manuscript notes is detached. The names of both Jacob Scheetz and John Schuetz appear in the margins of the text, and the date '1798' is mentioned in some of the subject headers. Calculations are done in pounds. A faint rubber stamp appears in the lower margin on the first page: "Geo. H. Scheetz, General Merchandise, Kellers Church, PA, Feb. 10, 1904," presumably a descendant of the original owner. The student scribe records definitions for several mathematical terms including interest, brokage [sic], compound interest, rebate or discount, equation of payments, barter, loss & gain, single fellowship, inverse proportion, double rule of three, fractions, vulgar fractions, arithmetical and geometrical progression, mensurating of superficies, etc. Many of the word problems relate to merchants, purchases or sales. Calculations and solutions are shown. There are small, neat illustrations in the geometry section. A nice example of an early American student exercise book. The owner was likely a member of the Scheetz family, immigrants to Bucks County, Pennsylvania in the 18th century. George H. Scheetz, whose stamp appears on the first page of the text was the grandson of George Scheetz (1785-1863) who settled in Kellers Church, Pennsylvania around 1820, and was a school teacher. Some family genealogies state that he had several brothers, including Johannes and Jacob. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

King George III. (George William Frederick)
June 25th 1798. Rare military appointment signed by King George III appointing David Byron Davis Esq. as Captain of Company in a Regiment of Foot, commanded by Col. Andrew Cochrane Johnston. One page partially printed on vellum with the Royal Seal to the upper right corner and dated June 25th 1798. Signed by King George III in the upper left corner, "George R." In very good condition. George III was King of Great Britain and King of Ireland from 1760 until the union of the two countries in 1801, after which he was King of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland until his death in 1820. His life and reign, which were longer than those of any of his predecessors, were marked by a series of military conflicts involving his kingdoms including the defeat of France in the Seven Years' War early in his reign which made Britain the dominant power in North American and India. Many of Britain's colonies were soon lost, however, in the American Revolutionary War. Further wars against revolutionary and Napoleonic France from 1793 concluded in the defeat of Napoleon at the Battle of Waterloo in 1815. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

An uncommon map, published in the 'Nuovo Atlante Geografico Universale', with a decorative title cartouche, by Giovanni Maria Cassini, a Somasco monk. He was geographer and cartographer but he was also good at engraving architectural items and perspectives - he was one of the best disciples Giovanni Battista Piranesi had. Moreover, Cassini was one of the last artists to engrave spheres in the XVIII century and his globes were quite famous and widespread, and realized the most important Italian Atlas of the XVIII century; his maps always bear a cartouche, extremely rich in colours and details. Copperplate with fine later hand colour, in very good condition.

First Johnson edition, following the original French account of the preceding year, a particularly tall copy, uncut in the original plain trade binding. Public fascination with the fate of La Pérouse was such that a flurry of editions in English appeared in 1798, including four epitomes: an unillustrated one-volume octavo, a little duodecimo Sketch of a Voyage of Discovery, "probably meant for children" (Forbes) put out by the chapbook publisher Ann Lemoine, and two single-volume Edinburgh editions.

1798. "Grande e importante carta geografica - composta da 4 fogli - dell'Italia settentrionale, con la suddicisione territoriale che segue il trattato di Campoformio. Disegnata da J. B. Chauchard e pubblicata a Parigi dall'editore J. A. Dezauche, l'opera rappresenta un'aggiornamento della carta dello stesso Chauchard del 1791, con le nocità territoriali nel Nord Italia a seguito del trattato di Campoformio. Scrive Roberto Sanfelici (cfr. Terre di Langobardia (2005) p. 26): ""Il titolo corre lungo il margine superiore, al di sopra della cornice graduata; in basso abbiamo l'inidcazione dei colori usati per caratterizzare i singoli Stati e poi 3 scale in miglia d'Italia, leghe di Francia e leghe di Germania. I due trattati di pace riportati nel titolo sono quelli delle paci separate concluse da Napoleone col Re di Sardegna e con l'Imperatore d'Austria [...]. La carta non è datata, ma si colloca certamente nle 1798-99, dato che cita la Repubblica Romana. Tra i due anni, è meglio scegliereil primo poiché il titolo cita il trattato di Campoformio e non la pace di Luneville. Chauchard rinnova qui l'impresa della grande carta da lui disegnata nel 1791 (cfr. Terre di Langobardia vol. 1, scheda 80). La scala è la stessa, ma la larghezza del foglio è minore, poiché il cartografo non ha più sentito il bisogno di rappresentare a oriente i territori oltre l'Istria e ad occidente Nizza e Savoia, che erano diventate parte integrante della Repubblica Francese"".

Questa è l'unica carta dell'arcipelago impreziosita da un decorativo cartiglio d'immaginazione che illustra la morte del capitano Cook, sull'isola di Hawaii, durante il viaggio del 1779. La prematura morte di Cook, nelle illustrazioni del tardo '700, riscosse un incredibile successo. Cassini, che non era mai stato alle Hawaii, ha usato ""Carta delle Isole Sandwich"" di Cook come modello per la sua mappa, commettendo alcuni errori interessanti. La sua rappresentazione dei nativi hawaiani con i loro copricapi di piume in realtà ricorda più degli Indiani d'America. L'errore più grande è quello di di mostrare Cook, un ufficiale della marina inglese, in divisa da ufficiale navale italiano.

Malton, James
London: Hookham and Carpenter et al, 1798. First edition. Hardcover. 27 pages in text. 33 x 27 c m. Twenty-one sepia engraved aquatint plates illustrate fourteen designs for rustic retreats, some showing variations of window treatment and surface finishes with the same basic form. MILLARD 42. "Malton had succumbed, deeply, to the influence of Uvalde Price....he was unwilling to accept Dr. Johnson's definition of the cottage as `a mean habitation,' regarding it rather a a hallowed sanctuary......a symbol of a particularly British tradition, to be upheld and preserved at all costs." Malton also made a plea, surprisingly early for preservation, noting, unless protected they will exist "no where but on the canvas of the painter." His designs set the image of the picturesque dwelling that was to survive as the popular ideal in England for a hundred years or more. ABBEY LIFE 34. ARCHER 197.1 "Malton presented this series of 14 designs "to those Nobleman and Gentlemen of taste." COLTON p.535. "These two book [this title and a Collection of Designs for Rural Retreats] establish Malton as a pioneer of the cottage orne." Minor spotting, dampstain to bottom lower corner of most plates are marginal not affecting images, some marginal toning to plates, contemporary owner inscription on half-title dated 1800. Modern quarter brown morocco and marbled boards. Very good. Item #18988. [Attributes: First Edition]

C. A. CHAUCHARD
Parigi, 1798. "Grande e importante carta geografica - composta da 4 fogli - dell'Italia settentrionale, con la suddicisione territoriale che segue il trattato di Campoformio. Disegnata da J. B. Chauchard e pubblicata a Parigi dall'editore J. A. Dezauche, l'opera rappresenta un'aggiornamento della carta dello stesso Chauchard del 1791, con le nocità territoriali nel Nord Italia a seguito del trattato di Campoformio. Scrive Roberto Sanfelici (cfr. Terre di Langobardia (2005) p. 26): "Il titolo corre lungo il margine superiore, al di sopra della cornice graduata; in basso abbiamo l'inidcazione dei colori usati per caratterizzare i singoli Stati e poi 3 scale in miglia d'Italia, leghe di Francia e leghe di Germania. I due trattati di pace riportati nel titolo sono quelli delle paci separate concluse da Napoleone col Re di Sardegna e con l'Imperatore d'Austria [ ]. La carta non è datata, ma si colloca certamente nle 1798-99, dato che cita la Repubblica Romana. Tra i due anni, è meglio scegliereil primo poiché il titolo cita il trattato di Campoformio e non la pace di Luneville. Chauchard rinnova qui l'impresa della grande carta da lui disegnata nel 1791 (cfr. Terre di Langobardia vol. 1, scheda 80). La scala è la stessa, ma la larghezza del foglio è minore, poiché il cartografo non ha più sentito il bisogno di rappresentare a oriente i territori oltre l'Istria e ad occidente Nizza e Savoia, che erano diventate parte integrante della Repubblica Francese". Incisione in rame, quattro granid fogli (dim. 615x445 circa ognuno) uniti e più volte ripiegati, coloritura coeva dei contorni … [Click Below for Full Description]
