The Committee of the Board desire that both the printed sheets and the remaining blank paper of both works may be delivered at Mess. Elmsly & Bremner their booksellers, with all convenient speed; and if the blank paper in hand should not be found adequate to what it should be by the accounts II & III the value of it may be deducted from the ballance due to Mr. Buckton.

He wishes to know whether any assistance by way of advance can be made to him to redeem his materials, which may be secured to the Board till the advance shall have been discharged. He understands these materials have been expressly provided for the works of the Board of Longitude & Board of Ordnance (the latter for printing the Greenwich Observations) and would be so depreciated as to sell but for oldweight, being useless to any one not being by them employed. He wishes for my answer [.]". - Traces of old folds; slight duststaining.

        A Description of a Remarkable Vision, seen by Thomas Webster, while speaking over a corpse at the grave's side, on the 7th of August, 1794, . in Bermondsey Church-Yard, accompanied with an exact representation. Also of another seen by Four Colliers on the 24th of June, 1796, with the prophecy of Humphrey Tindal, Vicar of Wellenger, shewing the Downfall of the Clergy, and the Woeful and Miserable Condition of this Kingdom, with several other remarkable Passages, As printed by I. M. 1642.

      G. Riebau, London 1798 - Hardcover. Slim octavo. 16pp. Contemporary half cloth binding with gilt titles on spine, marbled papered boards. Double fold-out frontispiece, hand-tinted in colour. A booklet collecting together near-contemporary texts (presumably first issued as broadsheets) on various curious and bizarre occurences: "Description of an Open Vision, seen by Thomas Webster," "An Account of a Remarkable Vision Seen by Four Colliers," "The Prophecy of Humphrey Tindal," "Curious Predictions from Keach's Antichrist Storm'd" and the "Prediction of Mr. G. Withers." Some sources suggest that there should be a separate title-page for "The Prophecy of Humphrey Tindal," but if so it is not accounted for in the pagination (which is otherwise sequential, including the title-page proper) and the only other copy that we could trace (that in the British Library) does NOT have a second title-page. Light wear to boards, a few small chips and tears to spine, some darkening to endpapers, pages a little discolored, still a solid, VG+ copy. Genuinely rare. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Voyages to the East-Indies. Translated from the Original Dutch, by Samuel Hull Wilcocke. With Notes and Additions by the Translator.

      London: Printed for G. G. and J. Robinson, 1798 - 3 volumes, octavo (211 x 128 mm). Contemporary marbled boards, rebacked and recornered in later calf, titles to spine gilt, edges sprinkled blue. Boards rubbed and a touch soiled, prelims and rear endpaper slightly tanned, margins of text block lightly toned. An excellent set. 4 engraved folding maps. First edition in English. The original Dutch edition appeared as two separate works: Reize van Zeeland over Kaap de Goede Hoop naar Batavia, Bantam, Bengalen, enz. gedaan in de jaaren 1768 tot 1771, published in 1793 (Landwehr VOC 296), and Reize van Zeeland over de Kaap de Goede Hoop en Batavia, naar Samarang, Macasser, Amboina, Suratte enz. gedaan in de jaaren 1774-1778, published in 1797 (Landwehr VOC 297). Beekman, in his study of Dutch colonial literature, believes that the English translation actually "improves on the original; by rectifying inaccuracies and errors" (Beekman, Fugitive Dreams: an Anthology of Dutch Colonial Literature, p.49, n.14). Stavorinus (1739-1788) was a postmaster with the Dutch navy. With few opportunities for action at the time in the navy, Stavorinus turned to the merchant fleet and the Dutch East India Company for service overseas. "Between 1768 and 1778, he undertook several trading voyages, visiting most of the Dutch trading posts in South Africa and Asia, maintaining detailed logs on his travels by sea and land" (Moore, "Johan Splinter Stavorinus' Voyages to the East Indies, Patriot in an Age of Reason", in Canadian Journal of Netherlandic Studies, 1991:12, n.p.). His accounts of these voyages present extensive descriptions of the Dutch colonies in Asia, covering a range of topics including local government, the role of the VOC, customs and history, flora and fauna, as well as extensive notes on the conditions of travel. The English edition was one of the few contemporary, up-to-date accounts of Java available to Stamford Raffles while planning the British invasion of the island. Cox I 307; Hill pp. 281-2; Howgego I E5; Landwehr VOC 300; Mendelssohn II 426; Tiele 1044. [Attributes: First Edition]

Ce voyage fut assemblé d'après les papiers de Lord Macartney ainsi que des commandants et des ambassadeurs du voyage par le secrétaire de Macartney, sir George Staunton. Macartney fut envoyé en Chine sur ordre du roi george III en ambassade extraordinaire pour la première fois dans le but d'établir des relations commerciales, de rencontrer les élites chinoises et de rapporter de son voyage toutes les observations possibles. Il embarqua à Portsmouth avec trois navires, Le lion, l'Indostan et le Chacal. Macartney traversa en grande partie le pays en s'arrêtant à Tianjin et Pekin. Cependant, en raison de coutumes différentes, l'ambassade fut un échec complet. Pour les Chinois, les relations dipomatiques ne pouvaient se faire sur un pied d'égalité, les ambassadeurs devaients se prosterner devant l'empereur et lui prêter allégeance, ce que Macartney refusa, celui-ci ne pouvant accepter une quelconque subordination du roi d'Angleterre à l'empereur de Chine. Le rejet catégorique chinois des relations commerciales entraînèrent les prémices de ce qui constituera les guerres de l'opium et la chute de l'empire chinois.  L'ouvrage demeure une des meilleures descriptions des contrées traversées par Macartney, offrant des informations précises sur les sciences, l'histoire naturelle, l'aristocratie... et sera eminemment utile aux suiveurs de Macartney.

Le rejet catégorique chinois des relations commerciales entraînèrent les prémices de ce qui constituera les guerres de l'opium et la chute de l'empire chinois.  L'ouvrage demeure une des meilleures descriptions des contrées traversées par Macartney, offrant des informations précises sur les sciences, l'histoire naturelle, l'aristocratie... et sera eminemment utile aux suiveurs de Macartney. NB : Cet ouvrage est disponible à la librairie sur demande sous 48 heures.

        Carte d Asie dressee pour l instruction.

      Artist: Dezauche JA; issued in: Paris; date: ca 1798 - - technic: Copper print; - colorit: original colored; - condition: Very good; - size (in cm): 49 x 62; - description: Map shows total Asia with southeast Asia, Turkey and Arabia; -vita of the artist: J. A. Dezauche was the successor to Guillaume De L'Isle and Philipe Buache. Guillaume De L isle (1626- 1757) Paris, was a French cartographer known for his popular and accurate maps of Europe and the newly explored Americas and Africa. De L isle was admitted into the French Académie Royale des Sciences, an institution financed by the French state. After that date, he signed his maps with the title of ?Géographe de l?Académie? Five years later, he moved to the Quai de l?Horloge in Paris, a true publishing hub where his business prospered. De L isle?s ascension through the ranks culminated in 1718 when he received the title of Premier Géographe du Roi. His new office consisted in teaching geography to the Dauphin, King Louis XIV?s son, a task for which he received a salary. De L sle?s reputation as a man of science probably helped .This supports the claim of the historian Mary Sponberg Pedley, who says ?once authority was established, a geographer?s name might retain enough value to support two or three generations of mapmakers? In De L isle?s case, it could be said that his accomplishments surpassed his father?s. Up to that point, he had drawn maps not only of European countries, such as Italy, Spain, Germany, Great Britain, Poland, and regions such as the Duchy of Burgundy, but he had also contributed to the empire?s claims to recently explored continents of Africa and the Americas.Like many cartographers of these days, De L isle did not travel with the explorers and elaborated the maps mostly in his office. The quality of his maps depended on a solid network that would provide him first-hand information. Given the family?s reputation and his own, De L isle had access to fairly recent accounts of travellers who were coming back from the New World, which gave him an advantage over his competitors. Being a member of the Académie, he was also aware of recent discoveries, especially in astronomy and measurement. When he could not confirm the accuracy of his source, he would indicate it clearly on his maps. For instance, his Carte de la Louisiane shows a river that the baron of Lahontan claimed he discovered, but no one else could validate it, so Delisle warned the viewer that its actual existence was in doubt. De L isle 's search for exactitude and intellectual honesty entangled him in a legal dispute in 1700 with Jean-Baptiste Nolin, a fellow cartographer. Noticing Nolin had used details that were considered original from his Map of the World, De L isle dragged Nolin in court to prove his plagiarism. In the end, Delisle managed to convince the jury of scientists that Nolin only knew the old methods of cartography and therefore that he had stolen the information from his manuscript. Nolin's maps were confiscated and he was forced to pay the court costs.The scientificity of the work produced by the De L isle family contrasted with the workshop of Sanson. While Sanson knowingly published outdated facts and mistakes, De L isle strived to present up-to-date knowledge. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

      Leipzig: bei Friedrich August Leo, 1798. - 4 Teile in 1 Band, vollständig mit 50 zum Teil farbigen Tafeln. Halbleder-Band der Zeit 30 x 25 cm - 4 parts.- Small-folio (300 x 235 mm) (6), 31 pp., (1) plate 1-5, 6a, 6b, 7-11; (2), 35-58 pp., (2), plates 13-25; (2), 61-86 pp., plate 26-29, 31-38, 30; (2), 89-114 pp., plates 39-50. Early 19th century half calf, rubbed and soiled, inside throughout brown spotted, ownership entry in ink on title: Gierth, mostly probably the author of Wiener Zimmermann Very rare architectural work, as the foreword writes intended to give: Ideas for the refinement of larger ob-jects (Ideen zur Veredelung grösserer Gegenstände) similar to Grohmann’s Ideen-Magazin. The publisher Friedrich August Leo found in Friedrich Meinert the person to collect and comment on the architectural designs of Saxonian architects. Meinert’s text for each design is disciplined and strictly systematic. It starts with a brief characterization, describes the respective ground plan in ist functional arrangement, then goes over to the exterior views and makes suggestions for the color design and the ideal surrounding situation for the building. Finally, there are some details about the ideal resident of the respective house. Friedrich Meinert (1757-1828), was professor of philosophy at the University of Halle. In 1797 he began his military career as a Royal Prussian Lieutenant in the Second Engineers Brigade; taught fortifications and fortress war at the Military Engineering Academy in Potsdam. Compiled the Encyclopädie der Kriegs-wissenschaften und der Kriegskunst". He was a prolific scientist who wrote on astronomy, geodesy, econo-mics and architecture. He was the first to "apply mathematics for the well being of the state and ist citizens, not so much to questions of distribution and political welfare as to economic law and theory, and above all to a multitude of technical questions that fall under the jurisdiction of the government: structural engineering in construction inspections; ballistics for artillery; mechanics and machinery in mills, transport, manufacturing, and mining." - not in Millard, Fowler, et al. Lit.: Rüdiger Campe: "The Game of Probability: Literature and Calculation from Pascal to Kleist" (2012). Klaus Jan Philipp. Um 1800. Architekturtheorie und Architekturkritik in Deutschland. 1997. pp. 134 - 139. Als Ergänzung zum Magazin für Freunde des guten Geschmacks hatte der Verleger Friedrich August Leo 1798 ein weiteres illustriertes Lieferungswerk aus der Taufe gehoben, das Ideen zur Veredelung grösserer Gegenstände enthalten sollte. Wie Leo im Vorbericht schreibt, habe es in Deutschland bislang an einem solchen Werk gefehlt, und er hofft, dass die Schöne Landbaukunst zu einem Zeitpunkt, da der deutsche Gschmack sich allmählich heraufarbeitet, Ankland finden werde. Wenn Leo natürlich die schöne Architektur des Alterthums zum idealen Masstab setzt, sieht er - auch um die Gefahr des andauernden ängstlichen Kopierens ausländischer Architektur entgegenzuwirken - die Chance einer Durchsetzung des einheimischen Geschmacks. Für Sammlung und Kommentierung der Entwürfe von ausschließlich sächsischen Architekten gewann Leo den Potsdamer Friedrich Meinert, der bereits durch bautechnische Bücher bekannt war. Meinert hatte nach einem Studium der Philosophie eine militärisch Laufbahn eingeschlagen und war 1798 zum Kapitän der zweiten preussischen Ingenieur-Brigade ernannt worden. Zugleich hatte er eine Stelle an der Königl. Ingenieur-Akademie in Potsdam. Meinerts Text zu jedem Entwurf ist diszipliniert und streng systematisch geordnet. Er beginnt jeweils mit einer kurzen Charak-terisierung, beschreibt den jeweiligen Grundriß in seiner funktionalen Anordnung, geht dann auf die Außenansichten über und macht Vorschläge für die farbliche Gestaltung und die ideale Umgebungssituation für das Gebäude. Schließlich folgen noch Angaben über den idealen Bewohner des jeweiligen Hauses. Friedrich Meinert (Göllschau/Liegnitz 1757 - 1828 Schweidnitz) war Sohn eines Unteroffiziers.

Staunton accompanied the Embassy as Secretary & compiled his book chiefly from the papers of the Ambassador & his fellow envoys. A fascinating true history of the expedition, useful primary source. *** By and large, the best single English language item done on China in the 18th century ! George Staunton [1737-1801] was a British diplomat, in 1774 Dr. Samuel Johnson met Staunton and they became life-long friends. Although the official mission to China failed, a wealth of precious information was collected and published in this first comprehensive official account. During this period of time, Great Britain was anxious to establish formal diplomatic relations with China and open usual trade relations. The unwilling Chinese resisted all Western foreign intervention in China. In the end Stanton's gifts and arguments were rejected by the Emperor. *** THE SECOND EDITION: This being the "Second Edition, Correct" edition of 1798. Uniformly bound in three full calf volumes, with 5 raised spine bands, gold stamped spine decorations, two red leather labels with gold stamping one the spines, [vol.1 lacking volume number label], else complete. * CONDITION: The set is solidly bound, with minimal wear to the edges. Volume 3 has mis-numbered pages 32 & 212. Also in vol. 3 there is some feint and minor stain to the edges of six locations, this is by and large in the margins, and does not affect much text. We are being overly critical, some of this is almost unnoticeable. Else the paper is very clean, no foxing or other issues. All hinges intact, there is a 3 cm. small split to the lower spine front edge of vol. 3, which has been reinforced, it is not solid and firm. There are a few old minor stains to the covers. By and large a handsome set, in period full leather bindings. The set has discreet armorial book plates. Please see scans posted to our website. **** There is bibliographical evidence that this set came with two maps a chart, but this copy has no list of maps nor any hint of maps being removed. This work was clearly bound with out any maps or charts at all. **** BIBLIOGRAPHY: E. Cox: A REFERENCE GULIDE TO THE LITERATURE OF TRAVEL, P.334-345. * Lust 545. * H. H. H.

      Copper engraving (Overall pleasant appearance, however, there are 2 small filled holes, 1 at centerfold in blank space in upper neatline and 1 in title in upper right just touching the ‘T’ in ‘PUERTO’, some minor creasing and a few very small light stains, 3 corners with restoration well outside of printed area, strong engraving impression), 50 x 64 cm (20 x 25 inches). - Madrid: Dirección de Hidrografía, 1798. A rare separately issued sea chart of Veracruz, historically Mexico’s main gateway to the Atlantic and Europe, the first printed scientific hydrographic survey of the harbour, by Captain Bernardo de Orta. - This exceedingly attractive celestial composition is packed with magnificent astronomical details and exciting allegory, and is one of the most beloved celestial works of the German Baroque era. Engraved by the master Melchior Rein, is it dominated by two large celestial hemispheres (Northern and Southern) taken from the work of the great Polish astronomer Johannes Hevelius (I611-87), as recently revised by the English polymath Sir Edmund Halley (1656 - 1742). In the surroundings, set aloft in a sea of clouds under a pageant of allegorical figures, is a series of seven astronomical diagrams. Starting from the bottom and working from left to right, is a diagram of the monthly orbit of the moon, following by images of the planetary systems as conceived by Tycho Brahe, Copernicus and Ptolemy; and then finally a diagram of the Earth’s orbit around the Sun. The image in the upper left depicts the Universe’s creation as proscribed by Genesis; while the diagram in the upper right depicts the monthly orbit and illumination of the moon. The map was created by Matthäus Seutter (1678 - 1757), one of the leading German cartographers of the 18th Century. The son of a goldsmith, Seutter apprenticed under Johann-Baptist Homann (1663 - 1724) of Nuremberg, the founder of Continental Europe’s most successful map enterprise. Early in the 18th Century, Seutter went out on his own, opening his own cartography establishment in Augsburg. While he struggled initially, his Baroque style of cartography, with strong engraving and bold original colours, echoed the tastes in fine art sand architecture of the time, and he eventually won a following. By the time he printed the present celestial chart, he had risen to forefront of map publishing in Europe, a status confirmed in 1732 by his appointment to Imperial cartographer to the Holy Roman Emperor Charles VI. After Seutter’s death in 1757, his work was continued by Johann Michel Probst and Tobias Conrad Lotter. The present celestial chart appeared within Seutter’s Atlas Novus Sive Tabulae Geographicae (Augsburg, circa 1730), although examples were also issued individually. The full original hand colour of the present example is especially fine. References: Kanas, Star Maps: History, Artistry and Cartography, no. 6.3.4.5; Warner, The Sky Explored, p. 245.
