        Autograph Letter Signed

      This Revolutionary War patriot acted on Washington's behalf to secure large lots of land in the District of Columbia area before the center of government was formally established there, then served as the first secretary of the navy (1798-1801). ALS, 1p, 7 3/4" X 10½", n.p., n.y. Addressed to JOHN TEMPLEMAN, a Georgetown merchant associated with Stoddert in various land enterprises. Very good. Mildly age toned, with binding traces down left edge (not affecting text). Interesting if cryptic details on some Georgetown real estate dealings in Stoddert's usual difficult script, reading in part: "Col Burrows has commenced 3 Houses on two lots, which Scot will not transfer, without a person to get two lots already divided to him in the sale square... these are No. 9 & 10. Pray then send an order to Forrest, to transfer to Scot, these two lots. As for the rest -- I believe the business is not to be settled without a Law suit -- a Law suit which will not end during the lives of the Parties who commence it." One Stoddert letter to Templeman in the federal archives concerns different investors interested in Georgetown real estate; though undated, it likely dates from late 1804 -- which time period is also likely for this letter, which is otherwise dated simply "Friday morning." Most unusual, most desirable.

        Abrégé de l'Histoire Générale des Voyages, contenant ce qu'il y a de plus remarquable, de plus utile & de mieux avéré dans les pays où les voyageurs ont pénétré; les moeurs des habitants, la religion, les usages, arts & sciences, commerce, manufactures; enrichie de cartes géographiques et de figures.

      Paris: Hôtel de Thou, 1780; Paris: Moutardier, 1798 - an VIII. - Première édition; 27 volumes in-8 et un atlas in-4; environ 450 à 500 pp. par volume; 97 planches hors texte dont 22 dépliantes pour les volumes de texte, et 74 cartes généralement dépliantes (sur 75) pour l'atlas -relié sans page de titre-, la plupart dessinées par Bellin. Reliure d'époque en basane marbrée glacée, dos à nerfs orné, tranches rouges, avec une très légère différence de fers pour les six derniers volumes (suppléments) et l'atlas. Très bel exemplaire dans un état de fraîcheur intérieure et extérieure exceptionnel, à l'exception de quelques épidermures et de deux petites galeries de vers sur les plats de l'atlas. Prévu initialement en 21 volumes par La Harpe et conçu alors comme un abrégé refondu et mis en ordre de la monumentale Histoire des Voyages de Prévost, l'ouvrage fut d'abord augmenté en 1786 de deux volumes relatant le troisième voyage de Cook, puis progressivement augmenté par Victor Comeiras de l'an VIII (1800) jusqu'à l'an XIII (1804). Notre ensemble de 27 volumes constitue un ensemble peu courant malgré l'absence des cinq derniers tomes du supplément de Comeiras. Boucher de la Richarderie, I, 98: "Dans cet abrégé, qui, dès l'origine, a mérité les suffrages universels? La Harpe a rétabli l'ordre qui manquait dans l'original? Dans la partie descriptive, il a classé les articles généraux de manière à éviter la confusion; et il a jeté dans son ouvrage une variété très piquante, en faisant presque toujours succéder la narration des aventures à la description des lieux?". Une table détaillée couvrant les 21 volumes du projet initial se trouve en tête du premier volume. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        The History of Great Britain during the Reign of Queen Anne With a Dissertation concerning the Danger of the Protestant Succession; And an Appendix, containing Original Papers

      London: Printed for A. Strahan; and T. Cadell Jun. and W. Davies..., 1798. FIRST AND ONLY EDITION. 4to, pp. iv, [vi] - xvii [xviii Errata], 674 [675 - 676 adverts], recently recased in quarter calf, morocco label, marbled boards; title-page soiled and creased, ex-library with handwritten library ownership on first page of text. The erratic pagination is a printing error. Thomas Somerville (1741 - 1830) began collecting materials for his historical works in 1782, and this volume was preceded by his History of Political Transactions and of Parties from the Restoration of King Charles II to the Death of King William III (1792). A native of Hawick, Roxburghshire, he received a honorary D. D. from St. Andrews in 1793 and was also elected to the Royal Society of Edinburgh. He was also the author of My Own Life and Times, first published in 1861, and an invaluable guide to intellectual and literary life in Edinburgh in the latter part of the 18th century. Despite the high quality of both the research and the writing, as well as favourable and encouraing comments and reviews, this volume, as well as its predecessor, sold badly. More recent scholarship, such as that by Richard B. Sher, has shown appreciation for Somerville's achievements.

        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.

        Encyclopaedia ; Or, a Dictionary of Arts, Sciences, and Miscellaneous Literature. 21 Volumes Set with Supplement

      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. Plate 365 lacking. Plate 228 loose, but present. In Vol. IX: p 337-344 are misbound. Scattered foxing and toning to pages. Tanned pages. Evans 33676-33693; Sabin 22555. 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.
