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

      London,: Robinson,, 1798.. Engraved map, 410 x 510 mm; with original central fold, fine. Fine and very detailed chart of Bucareli Sound in Alaska, prepared for the publication of La PÈrouse'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 PÈrouse'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.Wagner, Cartography of the North West Coast, 843 (French version).

        A Voyage Round the World in the Years 1785[-]1788?

      J. Johnson, London 1798 - Three volumes, octavo, with 42 engraved plates and maps; a few instances of light foxing but a very good set in contemporary sprinkled calf, rebacked; old bookplates, gift inscription to the Andover Institute Free Library dated 1873 at start of each volume and the library's stamp on p. 51 of each volume. First English edition. First English edition (it now seems) of the official account of the tragic French voyage. The disappearance of the entire La Pérouse expedition overshadows what was in reality a great Pacific voyage; the French navigator arrived at Botany Bay in January 1788, just hours after Governor Phillip had arrived with the First Fleet. La Pérouse's habit of forwarding records whenever opportunity offered ensured their survival. The first portion was forwarded by sea from Macao; the second (Macao to Kamchatka) went overland with De Lesseps, and the final despatches by courtesy of Governor Phillip from Botany Bay. After they left Botany Bay, the expedition disappeared - and no trace of them was found for forty years. Various versions and abridgments of the official account of La Pérouse's expedition came out in London in 1798 as English publishers scrambled to be the first into print. Forbes has demonstrated that the traditional idea that Stockdale's edition in two volumes was the earliest English version is probably wrong and that this Johnson edition was most likely the first of several to appear (see note to Hawaiian National Bibliography, 287).

        A Map shewing the Progress of Discovery & Improvement, in the Geography of North Africa.

      1798 - London: James Rennell, 1798. Some original outline colour. 430 x 725mm. Bottom right edge trimmed for binding, new margin added. A map of North Africa compiled by James Rennell to illustrate his appendix to Mungo Park's 'Travels in the Interior Districts of Africa', the account of Park's search for the source of the River Niger. Under the patronage of Sir Joseph Banks and the African Association, Park travelled to Africa to seek the source of the River Niger (1795-7). His expedition was delayed by captivity and illness (he spent seven months convalescing in a man's home), and he was believed dead when he returned to Britain. Because Park had little experience as a cartographer, the job of compiling the maps for the official account fell to Major James Rennell (1742-1830), former cartographer to the East India Company in Bengal. He too had fallen foul of locals and had to retire from active service because of the wounds he had received. He became a research cartographer, pioneering oceanography. He used a variety of sources to compile this map and in doing so made his greatest cartographic error: he extrapolated a single mountain seen by Park into a huge range, creating the 'Mountains of Kong', running across West Africa. Such was Rennell's reputation that his theory was instantly accepted and the 'Mountains of Kong' blighted maps of Africa for most of the nineteenth century and occasionally beyond.

First performed in Munich at the Residenztheater on January 29, 1781, set to a libretto by Giovanni Battista Varesco after Antoine Danchet's Idomenee; the opera was performed on only one other occasion during Mozart's lifetime. "Idomeneo is remarkable for its orchestration... [It] is also notable for its continuity... [It] is also the first Mozart opera in which the arrangement of tonalities seems deliberately calculated... Idomeneo is an opera sui generis, occupying a special place in the affections of its composer who went on to other achievements as vital and significant, but never returned to its dignified, heroic, yet thoroughly human world."

Epea Ptoerenta, Or, the Diversions of Purley is a treatise by John Horne Tooke on philology, whichis the study of language in written historical sources;a combination of literary studies, history and linguistics. With an engraving to frontispiece. Second edition. Part one of two, (vol two was published later and so volume one is often seen as here solo)John Horne Tooke (1736 - 1812) was an English politician and philologist. In 1786 Horne Tooke conferred perpetual fame upon his benefactor and friend William Tooke's country house by adopting, as a second title of his elaborate philological treatise of Epea Pteroenta, the more popular though misleading title of The Diversions of Purley. The treatise at once attracted attention in England and the Continent. The first part was published in 1786, the second in 1805. Previous owner's bookplate to front pastedown. Condition: In contemporary speckled calf. Externally, generally smart but with slight wear to extremities, slight marginal fading to rear board, front joint starting, rear held by cords only.

A good set of an important and interesting title. (ESTC T152908. Allibone 215. Brunet 1076). Title continues: During the time he was Secretary of State to Queen Anne; with State Papers, Explanatory notes, and a translation of the Foreign Letters, &c. Bolingbroke, politician, diplomatist, and author whose reputation as a philosopher was never substantial and, after the publication of his essays, it has never recovered. For nearly 200 years he was also widely condemned as an unprincipled political charlatan. Only in the late twentieth century did historians at last recognize him as a substantial, if flawed, political figure in Anne's reign and as a brilliant, if eventually unsuccessful, political writer in the age of Walpole. Although he supported a losing political cause, his career tells us much about the vicissitudes of the tory party and the divisions over fundamental issues of principle that cast them, a potential majority of the political nation, into the political wilderness after 1714. Bolingbroke's writings tell us much about the ideological divisions that persisted under the first two Hanoverian monarchs. See ODNB.

        An Appeal to Matter of Fact and Common Senseor, A Rational Demonstration of Man's Corrupt and Lost Estate

An appeal to the application of reason and importance of man's fallen condition by Wesley's favourite, John Fletcher. John Fletcher (1729-1785) was born in Switzerland, and studied classics in Geneva after a short career in the military. Arriving in England in 1750; he came to the attention of the Wesleys and converted to Protestantism in 1753,taking Holy Orders three years later. Fletcherhad a 'model' Anglican ministry in Madeley,whilstmaintaining his links to evangelicals (despite John Wesley's disappointment with his friend'sdecision not to establish himself as a dissenting minister). By 1761, the Wesleyans held Fletcher in such regard that they wooed him by positing him as a successor to John Wesley, until he prematurely predeceased the latter. In this volume, Fletcher appeals to his parishioners (to whom the volume is dedicated) to have regard for Paul's plea as to the importance of 'reason and revelation. ' He goes on to assert that Christanity is distinct from Deist religions because of 'the doctrine of man's corrupt and lost estate,' citing the harshness of nature and the pain and risk of childbirth as examples of divine retribution for as much. Condition: Recently rebound in very smart polished dark calf. Very minimal shelfwear. Internally, new endpapers (bookplate of Professor David Arthur Palin to frong pastedown).

        AN ACT TO SUSPEND THE COMMERCIAL INTERCOURSE BETWEEN THE UNITED STATES AND FRANCE, AND THE DEPENDENCIES THEREOF [caption title]

      [Philadelphia. 1798].. [Philadelphia. 1798].. [2]pp. on a single folio sheet. Docketed in ink on the verso. Three old horizontal folds. Neat separations at the edges of the folds, with no loss. 3-inch by 1-inch portion of lower left corner torn away, not affecting text. About very good. Rare congressional act, signed in type at the conclusion by President Adams, Vice-President Jefferson, and Speaker of the House Jonathan Dayton, suspending trade with France during the so- called "Quasi-War" of the late 1790s. The act was approved June 13, 1798. The Quasi- War was an undeclared conflict between the United States and France during the Adams administration in the late 1790s, manifested mostly in naval engagements between the two nations. The war was the outgrowth of deteriorating Franco-American relations, which had been weakened earlier in the decade by the "Genet Affair" and the "XYZ Affair," and it wreaked havoc on commerce between the two nations. One of the main weapons wielded by Adams was to ban American commerce from France and French dependencies, accomplished by this congressional act. The law commands that "no ship or vessel, owned, hired, or employed, wholly or in part, by any person resident within the United States, and which shall depart therefrom after the first day of July next, shall be allowed to proceed directly, or from any intermediate port or place, to any port or place within the territory of the French Republic, or the dependencies thereof, or to any place in the West-Indies, or elsewhere, under the acknowledged government of France, or shall be employed in any traffic or commerce with or for any person resident within the jurisdiction, or under the authority of the French Republic." The act goes on to bar French commerce and French ships from American ports, and spells out the steps that France must take to end the trade embargo, namely to refrain from the "aggressions, depredations, and hostilities" that they have undertaken against the United States. ESTC locates only a single copy, at the John Carter Brown Library; there is also a copy at the Library of Congress. Both ESTC and Evans give a collation of 2,2pp., yet this text is complete in the two pages on the single sheet found here, and it is docketed on the verso. It seems that Evans and ESTC are counting a blank conjugate leaf as part of the collation. EVANS 34710. ESTC W14826.
