        A Voyage Round the World , performed in the Years 1785, 1786, 1787 and 1788, by the Boussole and Astrolabe, under the command of J.F.G. de la Perouse

      London: G.G. and J. Robinson, 1798-, 1799. Two volumes, quarto, with engraved frontispiece portrait, and a folio atlas with engraved title, and 69 maps and plates; generally a very good copy in a decent modern binding of half dark green morocco, gilt, and marbled boards. Best English edition. The best English edition of La Pérouse, the first to contain a full translation of the French original, and a handsome set with two substantial volumes of text and a folio atlas. Abridged translations had appeared in 1798, but this was the first publication of a complete translation of the French original, and the first English publication of the complete set of images of the expedition. Most of the engraved plates are by Heath, engraver of some of the plates for Cook's third voyage. The translator modestly announces: 'The book now laid before the world is one of the most magnificent in its conception, and recent in its execution'. This edition is rare on the market. The disappearance of the entire La Pérouse expedition overshadows what was in reality a great Pacific voyage. While primarily a voyage of exploration and discovery, the possibilities of the fur trade and of French expansion into the Pacific and Asia were evidently investigated in depth. The most significant results of the voyage are the charts of the imperfectly known Asiatic side of the Pacific. En route to Kamschatka, La Pérouse was the first to safely navigate and chart the Japan Sea and the strait between the island of Sakahlin and the northernmost island of Japan, which bears his name. At Kamschatka he received instructions to proceed to Australia to assess the extent of British plans in New South Wales. Travelling via Samoa where he discovered Savaii, Manono and Apolima islands in December 1787, and through the Tongan group, he 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 Kamschatka) went overland with De Lesseps, and the final despatches from Botany Bay.

        Ansicht von Worms Vue de Worms

      Artaria & Comp, Vienna 1798 - A fine view of the city of Worms, a river-port on the Rhine, twelve miles north-north-west of Mannheim Hand-coloured aquatint etching by Ziegler after Janscha, with contemporary ruled and wash border. Accompanying the plate is a descriptive leaf of letterpess text, in French and German, with a contemporary manuscript English translation beneath `After passing the little island of Neusatz, the Rhine arrives at Worms? situated in the Lower Palatinate beyond the Rhine. The surrounding countryside produces much corn & rape seed also the excellent wine known as "Liebfraumilch"? The Church in the middle of the picture belongs to the Protestants who built it in 1725. The Catholics although they are few in number possess the Dome Church & four others. The Lutherans also have one. The residence of the bishop & the Town Hall are worthy of note it was in the latter that Luther appeared in 1521 at the Diet before the Emperor Charles 5th. It was at Worms that a treaty was concluded in 1743 between Marie Thérése & the kings of England & Sardinia'. This view comes from a work published in Vienna in 1798 entitled `Collection de cinquante vues du Rhin'. Janscha (1749-1812), born in Hungary, studied at the Vienna academy of arts, and later, in 1801, was appointed a professor of the same institution. The engraver Johann Ziegler (1750-1812) also studied at the Vienna academy and in addition to the present work he collaborated with Karl Schutz to produce a collection of 50 views of Vienna and its environs.

(title), [1] (cast list and contents), 2-183 pp. Engraved. Binding slightly worn, rubbed and bumped. Minor browning and offsetting; first and last leaves foxed; several margins repaired. . A very early edition published one year after the first. This issue carries a price of 21 Francs; an earlier issue carried a price of 9 Francs. First performed in Munich at the Residenztheater on January 29, 1781, set to a libretto by Giovanni Battista Varesco after Antoine Danchet&#146;s Idomenée; the opera was performed on only one other occasion during Mozart&#39;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."

        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.

        [K 366]. Idomeneo Re di Creta. Opera seria in tre atti... [Piano-vocal score]

      Bonn N. Simrock [PN] 51 [ca. 1798-1800]. Oblong folio. Early quarter calf with marbled boards, diamond-shaped black leather title label with titling and decorative gilt stamping to upper. 1f. (title), [1] (cast list and contents), 2-183 pp. Engraved. Binding slightly worn, rubbed and bumped. Minor browning and offsetting; first and last leaves foxed; several margins repaired.. A very early edition published one year after the first. This issue carries a price of 21 Francs; an earlier issue carried a price of 9 Francs. 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."

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. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
