        A Pagoda

      London - The 24 views of India depicted in "Views in Hindoostan" were redrawn and published by Edward Orme. Colonel Ward, a skilled amateur artist and member of the Madras Army, originally drew the sketches that Orme reworked for Views of Hindostan. Richard Chase, the mayor of Madras to whom this publication was dedicated, acquired a number of Ward’s sketches and passed them onto Orme. At the time of this publication there was a renewed interest in India, as the Fourth Mysore War had recently ended. The Fourth Anglo-Mysore War (1798-1799) was a war in South India between the Kingdom of Mysore and the British East India Company under Lord Wellesley. The war ended with the siege of Seringapatam, the capital of Mysore, and the killing of Tipu Sultan, the rebel leader of Mysore, by the British in 1799. William Orme was a talented landscape painter, who exhibited at the Royal Academy between 1797 and 1819. In addition to Views of Hindostan, Orme was involved in several other publications including J. Walker’s The Itinerant (1799), Francis William Blagdon’s A Brief History of Ancient and Modern India (1806) and F.B. Solvyn’s The Costumes of Hindostan (1805). Aquatint with hand coloring by watercolor was the most popular technique for works showing the colors and the varied landscapes and architectural sites of India. Orme also issued a beautifully produced group of sporting prints issued in 1814. These vivid prints are based on drawings by popular English artists, such as Samuel Howitt and J.A. Atkinson. The series depict various sporting and hunting scenes from around the world, the Orme sporting prints depicted here are of India. This hand colored engraving is overall in very good condition with dimensions of 23"x16.5". Some foxing and staining along margins.

        Lyrical Ballads, with a few other poems

      London: printed for J. and A. Arch,, 1798. Octavo. Contemporary spotted full calf by Bedford, rebacked, spine gilt ruled in compartments with a red morocco title label, sides bordered with a double gilt rule, all edges gilt, gilt-rolled turn-ins, marbled endpapers. Housed in a dark brown cloth solander box. With the errata leaf but without the advertisements leaf. Illustrated 19th-century bookplate of California pianist Nellie Joseph (graduate with honours from the famous Stuttgart Conservatory). A few small scratches to the calf, minor rubbing to extremities, internally clean, a very good copy indeed. First edition, the London issue as usual, following the unobtainable Bristol issue of the same year (listed by Healey in 13 copies, of which none are thought to remain in private hands). This is the earliest obtainable edition of the collection of poems which inaugurated the romantic movement in English literature and poetry, and one of the most celebrated of all collaborative literary works. The London issue differs from the Bristol issue only in the title page. A case can also be made that this was the first published issue: the Bristol issue was prepared in anticipation of publication by Longmans, an event which never materialized, leading Dorothy Wordsworth to write in September 1798 that the book had been "printed, not published", since there was no publisher until Cottle found Arch and Wordsworth found Johnson at about the same time.

        British Public Characters of 1798

      ONT> 1798 - A scarce collection of biographical sketches of seventy-one British public figures with a fold-out frontiepiece with thirty portraits. First edition. Missed by Cowie, this is the earliest appearance of a Nelson biographical reference. In every point of view, we are warranted in concluding, that Lord Nelson has rendered a most important service to humanity by his late and decisive victory. If the hostile cabinets of Europe should prudently avail themselves of its impression upon the enemy. an honourable and glorious peace may be the happy result. He takes pride of place as the first character in the folding frontis, probably because of his recent victory at Aboukir referred to above. Some of the othernotables include Lord Nelson, Mr Fox, Dr. Darwin,Lord Monboddo, Isaac D'Israeli, Mrs. Siddons, William Herschel and Joseph Priestley. It was very popular and was reprinted many times, forming the first in a series of these types of works. Very good internally but in need of rebacking for the original full calf binding. Priced accordingly to allow for this. Bound by C. Kalthoeber, London with binder's label to verso of front free endpaper. Condition: In a tree calf binding. Externally, sound but with front board detached, slight wear to extremities andspine label absent. Rear joint starting slightly. Internally, firmly bound. Bright but with the occasional handling mark and slight spotting to first and last few pages. Overall: GOOD [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Very good.</p><p>First Edition of the work that named the discipline known as the strength of materials. Girard was trained at the École des Ponts et Chaussées, and was one of the few engineers of his time with sufficient mathematical knowledge to read the works of Euler. In 1787 Girard began investigating the strength of wood as a structural material and was able to apply his first results in this field in 1790, when he won the Académie des Science&#39;s competition on the theory and practice of canal and harbor lock construction. In 1798 he published his Traité analytique de la résistance des solides, containing the results of his researches on the strength and resistance of building stone, timber and wrought iron; it was the first book published in France to deal with the theory of beams in all its aspects (strength, flexural strength, elastic stability, yield strength). In the same year Girard traveled with Napoleon&#39;s army to Egypt, where he studied the surface elevation and bed characteristics of the Nile; on his return to France, Napoleon appointed him director of the Paris water supply.

        A Journal of Natural Philosophy, Chemistry, and the Arts: illustrated with engravings. Vol I

      London : GG and J Robinson, 1798 A good copy of the first volume of this important work, in more recent half leather binding, with 24 black and white plates. William Nicholson published the first part of his monthly Journal of Natural Philosophy, Chemistry and The Arts” in April 1797. This is the complete series for volume 1 running from April 1797 to March 1798. Each month consisting of a collection of papers submitted by various authors. In contrast to the Transactions of The Royal Society, which has many glittering names but also many poor contributions, all of these papers have scientific merit. The papers themselves are well presented and structured, with references, descriptions of experiments, analyses and reasoned results. As such it represents a style that we would associate today with a learned journal presenting research outcomes from our Universities and Research Organisations. Nicholson edited this journal from its inception up to its closure in 1814, though some reports claim it was merged with a similar scientific journal of its time, the Philosophical Magazine to form The Philosophical Magazine and Journal. Nicholson was particularly supportive of new and emerging authors, accepting short papers from researchers early in their careers. The journal was also the forum for some significant discoveries in its later years, including Nicholson&#39;s and Carlisle&#39;s experiment that split water in hydrogen & oxygen in 1800, the first examples of flying machines by George Cayley in 1809, and the discovery of palladium in 1803 by William Hyde Wollaston. Included in this volume is a significant paper for its time on the study of methods of obviating the effects of heat and cold in time pieces – an essential requirement to develop an accurate method of measuring longitude. Amongst the inventions is a Gravimeter, used to measure the specific gravity of fluids – and so important for quality brewing. The August 1797 section opens with “an account of a new system of measures established in France”. This may have been the first presentation to an English audience of the Metric System; and predates the official adoption of the metric system in France in 1799. The half leather binding has raised bands and gilt compartments with title label to the spine and marbled boards. The new endpapers have a bookplate of Charles Hood to the front pastedown. The binding is in very good condition. Internally, there are signatures of Arthur Pearson 1834 and Eng Obach 1896 to a preliminary. The text pages are generally clean and in good to very good condition. P95 has a small piece out of the outer page margin not affecting text. The plates have some foxing and occasional light brown staining.

        Night Thoughts with the Life of the Author and Notes Critical & Explanatory

      Charles Whittingham for T. Heptinstall, London 1798 - Original straight grained full red morocco, all edges gilt Gilt border and tooling to board edges. Spine slightly darkened and moderate shelf wear. 24pp & 364pp & engraved frontispiece & title & 8 single sided engraved plates after Stothard. occasional minor marginal foxing and moderate shelf wear. Later Edition. Overall in VERY GOOD condition. Edward Young (1683 - April 5, 1765) was an English poet, best remembered for Night Thoughts. Although Night Thoughts is long and disconnected, it abounds in brilliant isolated passages. Its success was enormous. It was translated into French, German, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, Swedish and Magyar. In France it became a classic of the romantic school. The suspicion of insincerity did not trouble French readers. If Young did not invent "melancholy and moonlight" in literature, he did much to spread the fashionable taste for them. Madame Klopstock thought the king ought to make him Archbishop of Canterbury, and some German critics preferred him to John Milton. Young wrote good blank verse, and Samuel Johnson pronounced Night Thoughts to be one of "the few poems" in which blank verse could not be changed for rhyme but with disadvantage. The poem was a poetic treatment of sublimity and had a profound influence on the young Edmund Burke, who's philosophic investigations and writings on the Sublime and the Beautiful were a pivotal turn in Eighteenth-Century aesthetic theory. Young is not well remembered in the English-speaking world, though his reputation in France is somewhat higher. His best-known line is, "Procrastination is the thief of time."

        Uebersicht der vornehmsten Principien der Sittenlehre, von dem Zeitalter des Aristoteles an bis auf unsre Zeiten. Eine zu dem ersten Theile der übersetzten Ethik des Aristoteles gehörende und aus ihm besonders abgedruckte Abhandlung.

      - Breslau; bei Wilhelm Gottlieb Korn, 1798. First edition. Small 8:o. (11, 3 blanks), 394 pp. 19th century binding with light-brown calf spine and corners and dark-brown paper on the boards. The spine is divided into four gilt-edged panels one of which contains author and title information; at the foot of the spine there is a gilt-stamped floral decoration. With the signature of Axel Nybleus (1821-1899, Swedish philosopher) at top of front free endpaper and the bookplate of Johann Lyons at the bottom of front paste-down. A light, vertical crease on upper part of the spine. Two insignificant specks on the spine. Corners a bit bumped and rubbed. Minimal loss at the top corner of front free endpaper. A needle-sized hole in top margin from the title leaf until pp. 18, and in top margin of pp. 385 and onwards to the rear free endpaper. A small stain in the text on pp. 361/362. A few light specks throughout the book; contents surprisingly clean. Christian Garve (1742-1798) gained a master's degree in philosophy at the University of Halle in 1766. From 1770-1772 he was Extraordinary Professor of Mathematics and Logic at the University of Leipzig, a post he resigned from in order to devote himself to bookselling, writing and translating in his home town of Breslau. His deep interest in English philosophy led him to translate works of Adam Ferguson, Edmund Burke and Adam Smith. The book offered here is Garve's last work, and has become rather famous because, in it, he continues the criticism of Immanuel Kant's moral teachings which he had begun earlier in a review of the latter's Critique of Pure Reason and which provoked Kant into publishing an "Anti-Garve". Christian Garve believed that "Kantian morality destroys all incentives that can move human beings to act at all". Erstausgabe des letzten Werkes von Garve. Halbledereinband mit Rückenvergoldung.

        Drawing Cover

      Published by Haines & Son, No. 19 Rolls Buildings, Fetter Lane, London 1798 - A bold hunting scene of a rider drawing cover. This early hunting scene follows the tradition of James Seymour by presenting a small format sporting picture in a bold decisive style. The artist and engraver are not recorded on the plate, which was typical of works published at the period by Haines & Son. Haines & Son were prolific publishers and printsellers who catered to the decorative print market, they often republished earlier plates, which they acquired from other publishers, such as Carington Bowles and Robert Sayer. This image, which is listed as plate 2, is most likely the second plate in a set of six prints. Mezzotint. Printed on wove paper. In excellent condition with the exception of some glue residue on the verso of the sheet. Four vertical creases in sheet. A small abrasion in image. Image size: 9 ¼ x 13 7/8 inches.
