        A Selection of favourite Catches, Glees, &c. as sung at the Bath Harmonic Society, with the Rules of the Society, and a List of the Members. Second Edition. With considerable Additions.

      Bath: Printed by R. Cruttwell; and sold by The Booksellers in Bath; C. Dilly London; and by the Secretary to the Society 1798 - 8vo, 190 × 118 mms, pp. iv, [5]–17, [1], [v]–xiv, 152; with a stipple-engraved frontispiece printed in blue, nicely bound in full contemporary straight-grain red morocco, gilt border on covers, gilt spine, all edges gilt. A very good copy with the gilt morocco label of the "Bath Harmonic Society" on the front paste-down end-paper, and the engraved armorial bookplate of Carleton House Library to the front free endpaper. The second rule of the Harmonic Society states that "No Person whatsoever shall be eligible into this Society but Noblemen, Gentlemen, and Professional Men, who reside in Bath or its Vicinity, or who may occasionally visit it." Could they have out-sung all those Welshmen in the dissenting churches? ESTC T90829 locates a copy of the first edition of 1979 in the BL only, while what seems to be a second issue (N70113) has a publication date of 1798 (Duke only). Two printings designated "second edition" are recorded, one with 180 pages and a plate (4 copies, Berkeley and North Carolina only in the US), the other with 152 pages and no plate (9 copies, Folger, Huntington, Virginia in the US). This copy seems to be a mixture of the two. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      - Hannover, the author & Hahn, 1798-1823. 27 parts in 25. 4to (310 x 250mm). With 159 (of 162) beautifully handcoloured engraved plates. Contemporary wrappers, uncut. A very fine uncut copy in its original wrappers of one of the rarest works on South African botany. The last parts are particularly rare due to the well-known 'Napoleonic Pause' the disruption of most of Western Europe's cultural life caused by wars waged by Napoleon and the aftermath. In our copy 3 plates are lacking in part 14. Johann Christoph Wendland (1755-1828) was chief-gardener at Herrenhausen. The fine plates are after drawings by the author and the great majority depict South African species. Dr. W.Junk in his 'Junk Rara' writes that he does not remember having seen a complete copy. The only complete copy to have been on the market in the last decades is the Plesh copy sold at auction in 1976.Kerkham, 'Southern African Botanical Literature', 723; Stafleu & Cowan 17.132.

      Cadell and Davies, London, 1798, - (YORKE, Philip, Earl of Hardwicke). Athenian Letters: or, the Epistolary Correspondence of an Agent of the King of Persia, residing at Athens during the Peloponnesian War. A New Edition, to which is prefixed a Geographical Index. In Two Volumes. Illustrated with Engravings, and a Map of Ancient Greece. London : Printed for T. Cadell Jun. and W. Davies in the Strand, 1798.4to, Pp (4), [i] - lxii, (2), [1] - 436, (4), + engraved frontispiece (portrait of Philip Earl of Hardwicke), large folding cloth-backed map of Greece, and 7 engraved plates. Vol 2: Pp (4), [i] - xv, (1), [1] - 466, (4), + 5engraved plates. Bound in exquisite full tree calf with gilt décor and lettering on spine, gilt dentelles and edges to boards, and black and wine coloured morocco labels on spine. "The Authors of these Letters were a Societyof Friends, who were contemporaries at the University of Cambridge, about the years 1739 and 1740; all their names (except that of the Writer of thisPreface) were an ornament to the place. The world was unfortunately deprived of the talents, virtues, and services of one of them, when they were mostwanted, both by his own Profession and by the Public: not above two or three of the set are now living ; they lament theloss of their colleagues, and cultivate the remembrance of their former friendly connection.The learned, into whose hands these Letters may fall, will best judge how correctly the manners of antiquity are kept up, and how truly the history of those times is represented in them." Binding of volume I repaired, light wear to edges, lacking the engraved frontispiece for Vol.II (portrait of Charles Yorke), some foxing to plates and map, slight scattered foxing elsewhere, marginal tear to leaf 413/414 of Vol. 1.

        Flora Bedfordiensis, Comprehending such Plants as Grow Wild in the County of Bedford, Arranged According to the System of Linnaeus, with Occasional Remarks.

      Printed by W. Smith Bedford 1798 - First Edition, xii,351,[9]pp., presentation inscription from the author, 6 cont. hand-coloured engraved plates, cont. half, 2 contrasting gilt lettered morocco labels, paper shelf label to spine, a nice copy. This is the third English local flora, after Ray (Cambridge) and Sibthorp (Oxford), and the first in English. Although the BM (NH) copy has coloured plates, and Henry calls for them, this book is usually found with uncoloured plates, coloured copies an extremely rare in commerce. "A work described by one authority as 'almost a model as a county flora'. Abbot's carefully prepared Flora bedfordiensis is written entirely in English, except for the first two words of the title and the Linnaean botanical names of the plants. It lists 1325 flowering plants and cryptogams. A brief description of each species is followed by the general place of growth, and in the case of some rare plants, the precise locality". (Henry).

        British Public Characters of 1798

      London, Printed for R. Phillips,, 1798. Octavo (225 × 137 mm.) Uncut in original boards neatly rebacked to style with a new label. Folding frontispiece of thirty small portrait sketches. Light browning, some foxing to the frontispiece, but overall very good. First Edition. The very first biographical notice of Nelson, not noted by Cowie, published soon after his triumph on the Nile at Aboukir, the beginning of his rise to Glory; "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." His portrait is the first on the folding frontispiece, quite a good likeness, most closely resembling the Orme portrait. Other Naval "characters" noted are Lords Hood and Duncan and Sir Sydney Smith, amongst the others are Erasmus Darwin, Lord Monboddo, Isaac D'Israeli, Mrs. Siddons, William Herschel and Joseph Priestley. The first of a series which was to run for some 12 years under the title Public Characters, a great success, perhaps partly on the basis of this summary of the career of "England's Saviour," this volume ran through four editions by 1803. The first edition is decidedly uncommon.

      Paris. 1798-1800.. Six volumes (five octavo text volumes and a quarto atlas). [4],viii,cci,[2],294,[2, errata]; viii,529,[1, errata]; [2],viii,474,[2, errata]; viii,494,[2, errata]; xii,560,[4, errata]; [2],viii,158,[2]pp. plus sixteen maps (some folding) and plates. Numerous folding tables throughout the text. Octavo text volumes with quarto atlas. Contemporary three- quarter calf and marbled boards, spines gilt, leather labels. One text volume expertly rebacked, with original spine and label. A handsome copy in very good plus condition, with the Errata leaf present in all five text volumes. First edition, octavo issue. An account of the second French circumnavigation and the first French commercial voyage to the Pacific Northwest. Marchand, commander of the voyage, had learned of the lucrative potential for the fur trade in that region from British captain Portlock. He sailed via Cape Horn, stopped at the Marquesas, and traded along the Northwest Coast in the summer of 1791. He provides detailed descriptions of Norfolk Sound and Sitka, followed by a particularly detailed account of the Queen Charlotte Islands, and further explorations as far as the southern end of Vancouver Island. Besides the lengthy descriptions of the country and the Indian inhabitants, the author gives the most extensive history of exploration on the Northwest Coast up to this time, including the voyages of Drake, Juan de Fuca, de Fuentes, Bering, Cook, La Pérouse, Meares, Dixon, Colnett, Malaspina, Roggeveen, etc. Two editions were published in 1798-1800, one consisting of four volumes and one of six. Howes rates them both "b." "A most important work for the history of geographical discovery in the Northwest" -Hill. "A very important and authoritative work for the history of the Northwest Coast" -Lada-Mocarski. From North America Marchand sailed to Hawaii and then to Macao, where he failed to sell his valuable cargo of furs. He then returned to France, where the Revolutionary government confiscated his cargo. The voyage was a loss for its investors. Marchand died in 1793 and Count Fleurieu, himself an experienced Pacific explorer, took over the editing and publication of the material from the voyage, as well as adding an authoritative history of Pacific exploration and discoveries along the American coast. Considerable text is also devoted to natural history exploration en route. The detailed maps are of Alaska and the Northwest Coast, the Marquesas, and Hawaii. HILL 612. STREETER SALE 3496.

        MENTHAE BRITANNICAE: BEING A NEW BOTANICAL ARRANGEMENT OF ALL THE BRITISH MINTS HITHERTO DISCOVERED. Illustrated with twenty-four Copper-plates, of the natural Size, Done from the Life by able Artists; Exhibiting a Figure of every distinct Mint herein treated of, Including all those enumerated by Ray and Hudson; Together with Several new Species hitherto unnoticed. By W. Sole.

      Printed by R. Crutwell, Bath; and sold by Messrs. White, Fleet-Street; Bull and Co. and J. Barratt, Bath; Gilbert, Dublin; Hanwell, Oxford; and Hodson, Cambridge. 1798 - Folio. 9.75 x 13.5 inches. viii + 55 pp. + [1] pp. corrigenda. Illustrated by 24 engraved plates. Lacks plate 14, which has been replaced by a photocopy. Half-title. Bound in original green half morocco over marbled boards, rebacked with spine divided into compartments by raised bands and gilt rules, with red morocco label, gilt, now eroded. Extremities worn. Stain to upper blank margin of last leaf and isolated spotting elsewhere, otherwise a fine copy. 'The first published work to be devoted entirely to British mints' (Henrey). It is remarkable for its fine printing by Richard Cruttwell, and the quality of its engravings by William Hibbert, both of Bath, indicating the texture and shading of the mint plants. The original drawings from life were by James Hewlett, then of Bath, and others (see Henrey for further details). In his preface, the author critically surveys the work of earlier artists who had depicted mints, rating some as 'in general rude and Gothick' or 'very indifferent.' William Sole (1741-1802) was born and educated in Cambridgeshire, but later moved to Bath, where he practised as an apothecary-surgeon and lived for the rest of his life: 'One cannot watch most of the British mints growing in a garden in Bath for more than 25 years without knowing them very intimately' (quoted in Henrey). He also compiled an unpublished flora of Bath and was rewarded by the Bath and West of England Society in 1799 for his study of British grasses and their agricultural uses. Following the publication of the Menthae Britannicae a controversy ensued between Sole and James Edward Smith, President of the Linnean Society, who disagreed with Sole's nomenclature and classification.

He ran away from home at age fourteen, joined the army only to desert shortly thereafter, and then enrolled at Dartmouth. He left college early, went to sea as a privateer, and impersonated a ship's physician. Back in New England he impersonated a minister in Pelham, Massachusetts, and was soon caught counterfeiting money. Burroughs was imprisoned in Northampton, where he tried several times to escape before setting fire to the jail, which resulted in his incarceration at Castle Island in Boston Harbor. He escaped from the island fortress, was recaptured, and served out his term, eventually moving to Canada, where he became the leader of a counterfeiting ring. Later in life he reformed, joined the Catholic church, and became a teacher to privileged youth. "One of the great criminal autobiographies, and an important piece of picaresque Americana" - Streeter. As the second volume was published some years later in a different city, and evidently in much smaller numbers, complete sets are virtually impossible to come by. Shaw & Shoemaker locate only three copies of the second volume. STREETER SALE 724 (this copy). SABIN 9466 (not noting 2nd volume). HOWES B1022, "aa." EVANS 33478. NAIP w020739. SHAW & SHOEMAKER 5957.

        Plan of the Entrance of the Port of Bucarelli on the North West Coast of America

      London: Robinson, 1798. Engraved map, 410 x 510 mm; with original central fold, fine. Rare alaskan map. Fine and very detailed chart of Bucareli Sound in Alaska, prepared for the publication of La Pérouse's voyage, here in the English version. The engraving acknowledges its derivation from the mapping by Maurelle and Quadra on the Spanish expeditions of 1775 and 1779. The sound was named for New Spain's Viceroy - for some time it was thought to offer an entrance to the Northwest passage, which is why it was included in the publication of La Pérouse's voyage. Bucarelli Sound is located about 50 miles west of Ketchikan. The chart shows many soundings around the harbor shoreline. Locates Golfo De Esquibel. Is. De St. Fernando, Is. St. Juan Baptista. Puerto de la Real Marina and shows points and bays, channels and many small islands.

Paris: Didot le jeune, Bozérian, & Lejeune, 1798. The very rare first sale of Bozérian’s books. Many of the books offered here were bound by Bozérian during his leisure time for his own library. Culot states that Bozérian was obliged to sell these books in order to raise funds to purchase a workshop. Bozérian (1762-1840), called the Elder to distinguish him from his younger brother François (active 1805-1820), was one of the foremost and innovative binders of his time who also successfully engaged in bookselling and publishing. Over the years, he sold books at auction four times: 1798, 1807, 1811 (in order to retire in comfort) and 1834. There was a fifth, posthumous, sale in 1846. 513 lots and priced throughout in a contemporary hand. Fine copy. Without the 4-page schedule of sale at end. ?

        Erotopaegnion sive Priapeia trastulli amorosi

      F. Patris 1798 - Misura cm 18 x cm 12, legatura muta d’attesa, esemplare marginoso stampato su carta forte a barbe. Pagine: [12] + VI + [2] + 188. 2 tavole con incisioni su rame, fuori testo, poste prima di ognuna delle due parti del volume, con soggetti erotici. EROTOPAEGNION SIVE PRIAPEIA VETERUM ET RECENTIORUM VENERI JOCOSAE SACRUM Raccolta di poemi ed epigrammi erotici di Girolamo Angeriano (Napoli ca. 1470 – Ariano di Puglia 1535), poeta e umanista, membro dell’Accademia pontaniana; il suo nome non compare nel volume. L’opera, pubblicata per la prima volta a Firenze nel 1512, ebbe grande successo in Francia ed è qui riproposta nell’edizione stampata a Parigi nel 1798, su carta azzurrina, usuale nel ‘700. L’Erotopaegnion o Priapeia è una raccolta di brevi poemi in latino scritti in forma di epigramma giocoso, ispirati all’A. dai similari poemi della latinità, attribuiti a poeti quali Virgilio, Ovidio, Marziale e altri; questi epigrammi venivano solitamente affissi alle statue del dio Priapo. Queste statue, spesso grossolanamente intagliate in tronchi d’albero situati in orti e giardini, erano fornite di un enorme fallo, simbolo di fertilità e spauracchio contro i ladri di prodotti agricoli. I poemi sono scherzose variazioni su pochi temi continuamente ricorrenti: commenti alle enormi proporzioni degli attributi virili di Priapo e alle sue iperboliche prestazioni erotiche, minacce ai ladri di punizioni consistenti in violenze sessuali, attacchi contro le donne troppo vecchie o troppo libidinose, il tutto giocato attraverso doppi sensi e giochi di parole. Le due incisioni su rame, poste all’inizio delle due parti della raccolta, raffigurano personaggi e divinità pagane dotati di attributi virili smisurati e sono ornate da cornici con disegni raffiguranti l’attributo maschile.

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

      GG and J Robinson, London 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's and Carlisle'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. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        An Essay On British Cottage Architecture: Being An Attempt to perpetuate to perpetuate on Principle, that peculiar mode of Building, which was originally the effect of Chance

      Hookham and Carpenter et al, London 1798 - 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.
