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.

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 printing … [Click Below for Full Description]

GAMITTO, Antonio Candido Pedroso.
XXV, [1 blank], 501, [1 blank], [2] pp.First edition of this valuable narrative recording a trade mission to Kazembe IV. It was the last of three major Portuguese expeditions to connect the Portuguese territories of Angola in the west with Mozambique in the east. The expedition, fitted out with only one instrument (a compass), suffered from poor planning and failed in its objective to establish trade contacts with the Kingdom of Kazambe (in present-day Zambia). However, Gamitto, second-in-command of the expedition, was an observant traveller with a genuine interest in the customs and traditions of the peoples he encountered, and his narrative records valuable ethnographic information on the Malawi, the Cewa and Tumbuka, the Bisa, the Lunda, and the Bemba. Gamitto was the first to observe that the Malawi were matrilineal and described in full detail several technical processes and customs that have since disappeared. The fine plates show views, artefacts, and portraits, providing an excellent visual record of south-central African culture. One plate loose; two pages with annotations in pencil. Otherwise a fine copy.l Mendelssohn I, p. 586; not in Gay, Bibl. de l'Afrique et l'Arabe; cf.

BERTHIER, Louis-Alexandre and Napoleon BONAPARTE.
[1], [1 blank], [2], 3-148 pp.Rare account of Napoleon Bonaparte's campaign in Egypt (1798-1799), including Berthier's chronicle of the campaign and the official reports describing the Battle of Aboukir. Based on the various despatches sent to France in 1798, the first part describes the capture of Malta, the arrival in Alexandria, the Battle of the Pyramids and the revolt of Cairo. Of particular interest are several orders giving insight into the organization of French-occupied Egypt and concerning matters such as the distribution of bread, the free navigation of the Nile, the formation of a regiment consisting of former Mamluks and the establishment of a bureau to improve sanitation and prevent disease in Cairo. With its short-lived conquest of Egypt, France would introduce many modern ideas and inventions into the country, eventually leading to the independent and modernized Egyptian state under Mahammad Ali (1769-1849) and to the cultural renaissance in the Arab lands of the Ottoman Empire.The main part of the book consists of the official account written by General Berthier (1753-1815) for the French Minister of War and describing events from the capture of Malta to the Siege of Acre and the return of the French Army to Egypt. Following it are the two accounts written by Napoleon (1769-1821) for the Directorate and describing the Battle of Aboukir and the recapture of the fortress of Aboukir. All these accounts were published in instalments in the French newspapers, with the Relation appearing less than two weeks after the publication of the final instalment.

USTERI, Martin (artist) and Marquard WOCHER (engraver).
Rare edition with the French captions, of a print series "plunged in noble bile" (Füssli) on the misery of a peasant in the Helvetic Republic (1798-1803). This so-called Bauernvaterunser, a type of parody in which the miseries of peasants during war are placed opposite the Lord's Prayer, tells the story of a shepherd who loses his home and his son during the war. Living the life of a beggar together with his grandson, he watches his community being torn apart. The print series refers to the uprising of Unterwalden in 1798 against the Helvetic Republic. During the following punitive expedition, the French army killed 368 inhabitants, including numerous women and children. In the print series however, it is a local "traitor" who sets fire to the shepherd's cabin and whom the shepherd later encounters in the woods. Together with the final plate, which mentions that even the most enlightened and distinguished men were torn apart from their families, this indicates that the author viewed the conflict above all as a local strife that divided the community.Johann Martin Usteri (1763-1827) was a Swiss poet and artist, known for his satirical works. His print series on Unterwalden was simultaneously published in German, French and English in 1803 and as copper engravings in 1805 in Augsburg and London. Several parodies appeared in which the positive aspects of the Helvetic Republic were highlighted. With the binding worn at the extremities and front with two small holes near the spine. Endpapers somewhat browned and spotted and tissue guards with a few spots. Fore-edge margin of the … [Click Below for Full Description]

[PHARMACOPOEIA]. TAZEWELL, William.
XII, 192 pp.Rare second edition of "the first general (as distinguished from hospital) 'pharmacopoeia' compiled by an American" (Cowen), first published at Paris in 1798. The first part of the book is a classification of diseases, and is taken word for word from the influential 1769 nosology by the Scottish physician William Cullen. The second part is a pharmacopoeia, divided into materia medica and composite medicines. The introduction notes that it is based on the author's notes made at the University of Edinburgh, the London pharmacopoeia and Joseph Townsend's The physicians' vade mecum (1794) (p. x). Between the two parts can be found a list translating the Latin names of the chemical preparations, "which not all readers will view as sufficiently legitimate" (p. 77) into the modern English and French nomenclature.William Tazewell (d. 1832) was an American physician who had studied in Edinburgh and in 1797-1800 was secretary to Elbridge Gerry in Paris. After returning to the United States, Tazewell set up a medical practice in Williamsburg and later moved to Virginia. In 1803 he presented copies of his Vade-mecum to George Washington and Thomas Jefferson, the latter writing that "it has really brought the whole science of diseases & remedies within the shortest compass possible, and, not meddling with the details of the science himself, it presents exactly such a general view of every part of it, as [Jefferson] often wishes to take" (Cowen).With a small price in pen on the first flyleaf.

The 916 pages of these various issues appeared between 1798 and 21 March 1801: first every 10 days, then monthly for the second volume, and quarterly for the third. The periodical [...] ‘La Décade Egyptienne' [was one of] the first press productions of Egypt" (D. Glass and G. Roper, cf. below). The journal took its name from the "Décade philosophique", the publication of the Institut National's Section des Sciences morales et politiques, and contains "soit le texte intégral, soit le texte intégral, soit des extraits d'un grand nombre de mémoires ou rapports présentés au premier Institut d'Égypte par des membres de l'expédition, faisant pour la plupart partie de la Commission des sciences et arts. On y trouve également des observations faites par des médicins placés sous les ordres de Desgenettes. Celui-ci dirigea d'ailleurs la publication après le départ de Tallien" (de Meulenaere). At the time of the French capitulation, the first 24 pages of a fourth volume were in the press, but they were never distributed, and the only copy of these sheets remains in the Library of the Royal Museums of Art and History in Brussels (cf. ibid.).First and last volume show traces of worming, occasionally touching the text, with additional brownstains in the lower corner of vol. 3 near the end.

1798. Jacques Le Brigant [avec autographes], Elemens succints de la langue des celtes-gomérites ou bretons ; introduction à cette langue, et par elle, à celles de tous les Peuples connus. Brest, Gauchlet, an 7 [1798-1799], in-12, [4]-iv-64p. Seconde édition retouchée et rectifiée par l?auteur, rarissime (tout comme l?originale étonnamment éditée à Strasbourg). Le Brigant est un des premiers celtomanes et fut surnommé « le prince des celtomanes ». Les celtomanes considéraient les celtes comme berceau de l?humanité et du langage. L?ouvrage donne différents aspects grammaticaux, aborde quelques différents dialectes, puis donne des exemples de mots aux racines identiques dans différentes langues. Il donne ensuite quelques textes en bretons avec la traduction (courts contes, chansons, parabole de l?enfant prodigue. L?ouvrage se termine par un lexique breton-français. Intéressante gravure sur le titre avec mention « Arnentan langach ar brezonnec » & « Celticanegata negatur orbis ». Cette gravure semble être due à Le Brigant, on voit en effet les initiales LB au centre. Exemplaire enrichi d?un petit poème autographe signé « LeB. » et titré « Aux gnotophiles ou amateurs de la science » (dernières lettres coupées à la reliure) : « Vous qui manifestez Dans de brillants discours Le zèle et le désir D?acquérir la science, Bannissez du dédain L?injuste défiance : Le progrès de dix ans Je vous l?offre en dix jours L?anonyme des Bois, Le dépositaire de la langue primitive. » Exemplaire enrichi d?un autre petit poème autographe signé « LeB. » au titre malheureusement coupé à la reliure (ma … [Click Below for Full Description]

London: H. Humphrey, 1798. Gillray Punctures Parliament Complete and Exceedingly Scarce [GILLRAY, James]. Habits of New French Legislators and other Public Functionaries. London: H. Humphrey, 1798. First edition, complete; both series. Folio (platemarks c. 260 x 195 mm). Twelve hand-colored engravings, some stipple and aquatint, lettered with series title and plate number 1-12 above the image, lettered below the image with the title in French, engraver's name A"J.s.G.y.d. & f.t. and the publication line. Housed loose in a blue cloth portfolio. A very fine set. Not in Abbey, Tooley, or Ray. The copy in the British Museum Satires collection is incomplete. OCLC records only one complete copy, at the BNF. Only two complete copies at auction within the last ninety years, in 1926 and 1956. James Gillray (1756 or 1757 - 1815), was a British caricaturist and printmaker famous for his etched political and social satires, mainly published between 1792 and 1810. The name of Gillray's publisher and print seller, Miss Hannah Humphrey is inextricably associated with that of the caricaturist. Gillray lived with Miss (often called Mrs) Humphrey during the entire period of his fame. It is believed that he several times thought of marrying her, and that on one occasion the pair were on their way to the church, when Gillray said: "This is a foolish affair, methinks, Miss Humphrey. We live very comfortably together; we had better let well alone." The times in which Gillray lived were peculiarly favourable to the growth of a great school of caricature. Party warfare was carried on with great vi … [Click Below for Full Description]

A very good copy of the second edition, the first was published in Philadelphia (1797-1798). Half-leather binding from the early 19th century. The best account of the 1794-5 Dutch embassy to China, written by André Everard van Braam Houckgeest, who had previously served with the Dutch East India Company at Canton and Macao. The Dutch embassy visited many parts of China which had been closed to Europeans and Braam Houckgeest provides a full description of their journey. The final twenty pages describe the volumes of Chinese paintings and drawings in Braam Houckgeest's own collection. The original manuscript was written in Dutch and translated into French by the émigré bookseller Moreau de Saint-Méry. This second edition only includes the text of the first volume of the Philadelphia edition: subsequent English, German, and Dutch editions used the same text.

LACEPEDE, B.G. DE.
Paris, Plassan, an VI-VIII (1798-1800). 2 volumes (of 5). 4to (252 x 195mm). With 45 engraved plates and 1 engraved vignette. Contemporary calf, spines with 6 raised bands, richly floral gilt ornaments and 2 gilt lettered labels. First edition. The complete ichthyology section of Buffon's famous 'Histoire Naturelle' has 5 volumes (with 116 plates) of which we offer the first 2. The present section is rare as it was published after Buffon's death, in a smaller edition, and is very often lacking in the complete set. The drawings of Buffon's 'Histoire Naturelle' published in 44 volumes from 1749 to 1804 were made by J. de Sève, while the engraving was done by a host of skilled craftsmen. Lacepède (1756-1825) was the successor to Buffon. ". at the age of 21 he went to Paris and soon formed a friendship with Georges Buffon. Buffon enlisted Lacepède's aid in his grand project to summarize all natural history, and , when he died in 1788, Lacepède, together with L.J.M. Daubenton, had been Buffon's choice to succeed him. Lacepède published many important works on vertebrates, especially on fishes and cetaceans"(Adler p. 14).Nissen ZBI, 2348 (quoting erroneously 161 plates). [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

1798. Condition: Buone condizioni. Volume in-8°, rilegato in tutta pelle coeva, dorso col titolo "Travels in Sicily" appena leggibile perché annerito dal tempo, tracce di doratura al dorso, nel complesso volume in buono stato, senza alcuna mancanza. La rara prima edizione delle lettere scritte dalla Sicilia nel 1798 da Thomas Bingham Richards e stampate privatamente per lui a Londra nel 1800 da Stratford e Young. Nessun esemplare compare sul mercato antiquario dal 1944, quando venne offerto in un catalogo del celebre libraio antiquario Maggs di Londra, allora posto in vendita a £ 1,25. Nessun esemplare è presente in biblioteche italiane (fonte SBN), e purtoppo anche siciliane, così come nessun esemplare compare da tempo sui principali siti online di libri antichi. Volume di notevole importanza per l'argomento legato al Grand Tour in Italia di viaggiatori stranieri, e di fondamentale importanza per quanto riguardo la Sicilia di fine Settecento. Cfr. Mario Praz, "Geometrie anamorfiche. Saggi di arte, letteratura e bizzarrie varie", Roma, Storia e letteratura, 2002, pp. 121-122, in riferimento a Villa Palagonia, di cui scrive Richards in una delle lettere.
