        L'Aretin D'Augustin Carrache

      [Paris] - A La Nouvelle Cythere 1798 - A French description of the series of erotic engraved plates, depicting pairs of lovers in different positions of intercourse. Missing the twenty engraved platesby Carrachi, and containing the text only. The plates depict couples and scenes from mythology, including Jupiter and Juno, Anthony and Cleopatra, and Ovid sand Corinne. I Modi (The Ways), also known as The Sixteen Pleasures or under the Latin title De omnibus Veneris Schematibus, is a famous erotic book of the Italian Renaissance in which a series of sexual positions were explicitly depicted in engravings. While the original edition was apparently completely destroyed by the Catholic Church, fragments of a later edition survived. The second edition was accompanied by sonnets written by Pietro Aretino, which described the sexual acts depicted. The original illustrations were probably copied by Agostino Caracci, whose version survives. Condition: In a calf binding with gilt dentelles. Externally, smart, though with some rubbing and marks. Internally, firmly bound. Pages are bright and clean, with just the odd patch of foxing. Overall: VERY GOOD INDEED. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Memoirs of the Author of a Vindication of the Rights of Woman. By William Godwin

      London: for J. Johnson, and G. G. and J. Robinson,/for J. Johnson,, 1798/1787. [Bound together with] Thoughts on the Education of Daughters: with Reflections on Female Conduct, in The more important Duties of Life. By Mary Wollstonecraft. Two works bound as one, octavo. Contemporary half-calf, spine gilt-ruled in compartments, rebacked with the original spine laid down, marbled sides. Half-title, engraved portrait frontispiece and errata leaf to the first work. Contemporary ink ownership inscription to first blank. Spine and corners somewhat rubbed, slight cracking to hinges but the joints holding fine, mild toning to endpapers offset from turn-ins, faint marginal dampstain to portrait frontispiece, title page faintly offset from frontis, rear free endpaper just loosening at the head, otherwise internally quite fresh and on the whole a very good copy indeed. First editions of two scarce and important Godwin/Wollstonecraft books; William Godwin's memoir of his late wife Mary Wollstonecraft here found together in a contemporary binding with a first edition of Wollstonecraft's first book, Thoughts on the Education of Daughters. Godwin's touching and frank account of his wife's life marks an important step in the development of the art of biography. The details of her sexual liaison with Imlay, the birth of her illegitimate daughter, and her suicide attempts, all scandalised contemporary readers for whom biographies were expected to be glowing accounts of admirable qualities. Godwin, the grieving widower, was determined that the public deserved to know the whole truth about this remarkable woman. Wollstonecraft's first book, Thoughts on the Education of Daughters, was based on her own rather brief experience as a teacher. In 1784, at the age of 24 she had opened up her own school for girls at Newington Green, but this failed and she took an appointment, also destined to be short-lived, as governess to the children of the aristocratic Kingsborough family in Ireland. In the midst of these disappointments, however, she was introduced to the publisher of rational dissent, Joseph Johnson, who agreed to publish this, her first book, thus beginning a literary association between the two that long outlasted her career as a juvenile educationalist. Apart from a single contemporary printing in Dublin, by W. Sleater, 1788, the book was not reprinted until 1972, when rising feminist literary discourse co-opted it as a precursor text to her Rights of Woman (1792). First editions of both books are very uncommon, particularly Thoughts on the Education of Daughters, and to have them bound thus together in a near-contemporary binding is highly appealing.

        Traité de Mécanique Céleste

      Folding engraved plate in Vol. IV. Five vols. Large 4to, cont. polished mottled calf (joints & a few corners carefully repaired), spines nicely gilt, red morocco lettering pieces on spines. Paris: J.B.M. Duprat & others, An VII [1798 First edition and a complete set with all the supplements. In this monumental and fundamental astronomical work, Laplace -- the "Newton of France" -- codified and developed the theories and achievements of Newton, Euler, d'Alembert, and Lagrange. "Laplace maintained that while all planets revolve round the sun their eccentricities and the inclinations of their orbits to each other will always remain small. He also showed that all these irregularities in movements and positions in the heavens were self-correcting, so that the whole solar system appeared to be mechanically stable. He showed that the universe was really a great self-regulating machine and the whole solar system could continue on its existing plan for an immense period of time. This was a long step forward from the Newtonian uncertainties in this respect...Laplace also offered a brilliant explanation of the secular inequalities of the mean motion of the moon about the earth -- a problem which Euler and Lagrange had failed to solve...He also investigated the theory of the tides and calculated from them the mass of the moon."-Printing & the Mind of Man 252. A very nice set. Our set has the first state, with the earlier dates, of the titles of Vols. I and II, all the half-titles, and all the supplements. ❧ Dibner, Heralds of Science, 14.

      Philadelphia : Printed by Thomas Dobson, 1798-01-01. Hardcover. Very Good. 21 Volumes. Quarto. 595 of 596 plates present. Bound in full contemporary full leather. Gilt spine. Good bindings and covers. Wear to extremities. Most volumes lacking spine labels. Chipping and loss to head and tail of spines. Boards starting. Front boards detached on Volumes 1, 5, 9, 10 & 18.

Dobson's Encyclopaedia was the first encyclopedia issued in the newly independent United States of America, published by Thomas Dobson from 1789â€?"1798. The encyclopedia was a reprint of the contemporary third edition of the Encyclopaedia Britannica (published 1788â€?"1797), although Dobson's Encyclopaedia was a somewhat longer work in which a few articles were edited for a patriotic American audience. Dobson objected to a British bias he perceived in the Britannica, and resolved to re-edit the Britannica accordingly. He completed his Encyclopaedia in April 1798, a year after the original. It had 16,650 pages, with 595 engraved copperplates, slightly more than the Britannica. In support of Dobson's patriotic initiative, President George Washington subscribed to two sets, to help promote Dobson’s endeavor, as well as Thomas Jefferson, Aaron Burr and Alexander Hamilton. In promoting his Encyclopaedia, Dobson conducted an all-out advertising blitz, never before seen in North America, to secure subscriptions; his advertisements appealed strongly to the patriotic pride of Americans and appeared in newspapers, on magazine wrappers, in spare book leaves, and in pamphlets distributed to all the major book-sellers of his day. "From every standpoint the highest achievement in Colonial bookmaking. The whole work, illustrations, type, and paper (and content) shows an achievement of professional craftsmen working together for an enlightened publisher. The first American book on anything like such a scale, Dobson's work marks the end of printing in America as a household craft and the beginning of its (modern) development." Evans 22486. Though Dobson amended and expanded his edition of the 3rd edition of the Encyclopaedia Britannica, he reprinted the bold article on "Motion", which made the 3rd infamous, in which it erroneously rejected Isaac Newton's theory of gravitation, writing that gravity is caused by the classical element of fire.

        Thebet Mountains

      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.

        A Timely Appeal to the Common Sense of the People of Great Britain in general, And of the inhabitants of Buckinghamshire in particular, on the present situation of affairs; with references to the opinions of most of the British and French philosophers of the present century. [bound with:] Further Thoughts on the present state of public opinion; being a continuation of A Timely Appeal .

      Printed for J. Hatchard second work: by W. Bulmer -1800 1798 - 2 works in 1 vol., the first bound without half-title or final advertisement leaf, the whole interleaved, title-page of the second slightly soiled and with a reddish stain in the fore-margin which persists for a few leaves, pp. 120; xii (these pages not interleaved), 185, 8vo (text) and 4to (interleaves), contemporary calf, rebacked, corners worn, with pencil notes on the interleaves, some quite extensive, to the first 42 pages, bookplate of Peter Isaacs, good Grandson of the Founder of Pennsylvania, John Penn (1760-1834), returned to England in 1788, unable to restore the proprietorship of the province of Pennsylvania to the Penn family, although compensated. From a hitherto purely literary dilletantism he now turned to politics. In the year of the Timely Appeal he was appointed sheriff of Buckginghamshire, hence the particularity of the title. Penn addresses himself to 14 heads, including: the unequal distribution of wealth; inequality of rank (‘Men have equal rights, but are not born equal’); the severity of our penal code; disregard of the goodwill expressed for us by the French; the weight of taxes; the distresses of the poor; miniterial influence.At first sight this seems to be an author’s copy in preparation for a second edition. But the numerous corrections to style and expression are soon mingled with opinions on the clarity or otherwise of the text, and more general comments on merits and demerits. Clearly then the annotations are the work of a friend-cum-critic. (ESTC T50331 and T111630, BL and Bodley only in the UK)

        L'Amerique Septentrionale

      Pierre Schenk 1798 - Guillaume De L'Isle (1675-1726) L'Amerique Septentrionale Amsterdam: Pierre Schenk, 1798 Hand-colored copperplate engraving 31 ½" x 36" framed Guillaume de L’ Isle was the leading French cartographer of the early 18th century. He was known for both his strong belief in the importance of accuracy, as well as his prolific output of over 100 maps during his lifetime. Guillaume de L’Isle was born into a family of French cartographers, and was the pupil of mathematician and astronomer Jean Dominique Cassini. It is said that de L’Isle drew his first map at the age of nine. His first atlas, which he published at the age of 25, made an unprecedented effort to both correct fallacies of earlier maps, such as the depiction of California as an Island, and to add current data to maps. De’Isle was elected to the French Academie Royale des Sciences at the age of 27 and was later appointed to the highest honor as Premier Geographe du Roi (1718). His critical approach to the maps of his predecessors, backed by his training under J. D. Cassini, earned him recognition as the first scientific cartographer and the foremost geographer of his age. De L’Isle was one of the first cartographers to accurately show, in this map of North America originally published in 1700, the peninsular formation of California. Many of de L’Isle’s maps were revised and republished into the 18th century. This later version released in the 1798 by the Amsterdam map publisher Pierre Schenk.

      Paris, An VI. (1798). b/w folding plates. 4to. xii, 403, (1) pp. Complete specifications and instructions for building, equipping and sailing a 74 gun frigate, written at the direction of the Minister of the Marine to get the French Navy up to snuff. Interestingly it also contains more than 200 pages of highly specific manning instructions, - quarter and station bills - for sailing and fighting a vessel of this class. Polak 1322 calls for 9 plates; there are 8 folding plates here, numbered 1-8. OCLC, which also calls for 9 plates, locates only 2 copies. Apparently lacking lacking one plate, though Lefkowicz cites a copy with eight plates. Light water stain on lower edges of pages, but still a very nice copy, with eight folding engraved plates. Bound in original full calf with gilt spine decorations. All edges gilt.
