        Le Pied de Fanchète, ou le Soulier Couleur-de-Rose. Troisième édition.

      La Haye, 1786 (i.e. 1798). - 2 tomes en 2 volumes in-12 à pagination continue. 171pp. + pp.173-383. Demi-veau à coins, dos lisses ornés, pièces de titre en maroquin (reliure de l'époque). Edition rare du célèbre roman de Restif de la Bretonne sur le pied féminin auquel il voua un véritable culte tout au long de son existence. Paru pour la première fois en 1769, il relate l'histoire d'une jeune marchande parisienne de la rue Saint-Denis, à qui son joli pied occasione toutes sortes de péripéties. "Une chaussure à talons hauts laissant apparaître une fine cheville de femme, et Restif s'embrase. 'Le Pied de Fanchette' (1769) célèbre le fantasme majeur de l'écrivain et les représentations qui en dérivent, mais il rassemble aussi toutes les obsessions d'une époque qui n'a cessé de célébrer, dans la littérature et dans la peinture, le pied féminin comme objet érotique privilégié" (Masseau). La présente édition, datée par erreur de 1786, fut imprimée en réalité en 1798. Elle est selon l'auteur "très supérieure" à celles qui l'avaient précédé, par les nombreuses corrections qu'il y a apportées. Exemplaire publié à l'époque sans les deux gravures qui accompagnent quelques rares exemplaires. Bel exemplaire très frais. J. Rives Childs, Restif de la Bretonne, p. 204, n°5. Masseau, "La chaussure ou le pied de Fanchette" in: Études françaises, vol. 32, n° 2 (1996), pp. 41-52.

        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 extreemly 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). Henrey, British Botanical and Horticultural Literature. II, p. 73.

        Lettre autographe.

      S. l. n. d., [vers 1798]. - 2/3 de page in-8, sur vergé, avec adresse. À Adrien de Lezay Marnésia, un intime de la femme de lettres: "Vous ne voulez donc plus me voir. Venez diner chez moi et si Liveron on est libre emmenez le -pardon de ne pas signer comme vous, et de supprimer beaucoup d'autres formules qui séparent, et rendent étrangers l'un à l'autre - Je sors à 7 h faudrait-il encore passer aujourd'hui sans vous voir?" - Au cours de ce tragique printemps de 1798 et les années suivantes, Mme de Staël passe des heures presque calmes au bord du Léman. Elle accompagne son père, Jacques Necker (1732-1804), ancien ministre de Louis XVI, dans ses promenades à petits pas sous les arbres du parc du Château de Coppet, près de Genève. Elle trace, sur des cahiers de papier à grain rude, l'esquisse de quelques chapitres de ses prochains ouvrages. Le livre De la littérature s'écrit ainsi, tandis que quelques amis venus de Genève, un ou deux proscrits de Fructidor, suscitent d'un mot sa conversation. Des émigrés revenant d'Allemagne font étape à Coppet. C'est par ces Français, ADRIEN DE LEZAY, Chênedollé, et par quelques Suisses, que la femme de lettres prend une connaissance, d'abord superficielle, de l'Allemagne.

        A Voyage of Discovery to the North Pacific Ocean, and Round the World; in which the coast of North-West America has been carefully examined and accurately surveyed. principally with a view to ascertain the existence of any navigable communication between the North Pacific and North Atlantic Oceans; and performed in the years 1790. [-] 1795, in the Discovery sloop of war, and the armed tender Chatham.

      - [Edited by John Vancouver]. London: printed for G.G. & J. Robinson and J. Edwards, 1798. 3 volumes (without the folio atlas), quarto. (11 3/8 x 9 1/4 inches). Half-titles, 3pp. errata at the end of vol.III. 1 engraved chart, 17 engraved plates. Later half morocco over marbled paper-covered boards, the spines gilt in compartments, the bands highlighted with gilt tooling. First edition of the text volumes to "One of the most important [voyages] ever made in the interests of geographical knowledge" (Hill). Vancouver was put in command of the expedition on the recommendation of his old commanding officer Alan Gardner. He had served earlier with both Admiral Rodney and on James Cook's second and third voyages, so was well equipped in terms of experience, in addition he was a first class navigator. The voyage was mounted as a `grand-scale expedition to reclaim Britain's rights, resulting from the Nootka Convention, at Nootka Sound, to thoroughly examine the coast south of 60º in order to find a possible passage to the Atlantic; and to learn what establishments had been founded by other powers. This voyage became one of the most important ever made in the interests of geographical knowledge. Vancouver sailed by way of the Cape of Good Hope to Australia, where he discovered King George's Sound and Cape Hood, then to New Zealand, Hawaii, and the northwest coast of America. In three seasons' work Vancouver surveyed the coast of California; visited San Francisco and San Diego . and other Spanish settlements in Alta California; settled the necessary formalities with the Spanish at Nootka; investigated the Strait of Juan de Fuca; discovered the Strait of Georgia; circumnavigated Vancouver Island; and disproved the existence of any passage between the Pacific and Hudson Bay.'

        Morning after the Storm. The husband&#39;s return... Le Matin devenu Calme. Le retour du mari

      London: Published by William Redmore Bigg, March 1798. Colour printed mezzotint with additional hand-colouring. In good condition with the exception of some neat repairs to the plate mark. 17 3/4 x 23 3/4 inches. 18 x 23 5/8 inches. A lovely genre picture after the celebrated artist William Redmore Bigg which demonstrates familial love. In this excellent colour mezzotint, William Ward&#39;s fine engraving conveys the charm of Bigg&#39;s painting, and illustrates a sensibility and concern for familial warmth that has, to a definite degree, since been lost. Bigg&#39;s early Romantic narratives anticipate the "good" people in Dickens&#39; novels for whom familial affection and constancy are ultimate values, unattainable to those in whom personal greed and envy predominates. Bigg has selected his moment well, The fisherman&#39;s family has endured hours of imagining and not knowing his fate, listening to the storm rage outside. Now he is safely home and all is well. The family gathers happily but quietly around him, his wife and eldest son help him remove his sea-drenched top- coat. Another son kneels at his feet with a boot-jack. Two more children warm some dry clothes over the fire. The youngest daughter watches the baby whilst her father&#39;s needs are dealt with. With skill and beauty Bigg&#39;s expresses this happy release from anxiety.

FIRST EDITION. 8vo, 196 x 113 mms., pp. xiv [xv - xvi blank],334, original boards, paper label on spine; first gathering mis-folded with final blank leaf preceding pp. xii - xiv, binding slightly soiled, some nicks to front joint, lower spine very slightly defective, corners slightly crushed. but a decent copy with the bookplate of Aloysius Guillelmus Denner on the Front paste-down end-paper and on the rector of the front free end-paper the Ex Libris of Sigmund Blau. Kant (1724 - 1804) published this, his last significant work, after a tussle with the ecclesiastical authorities about his writings on religion. The word "Anthropologie" does not have its modern meaning; instead Kant is writing about mental processes and psychology. His interest in classifying and defining mental disorders began with an examination of the effect of puberty on thought processes.

Written 1796 to the eight-month-old Princess Charlotte but for unknown reasons first published three years later. 'O'Keeffe, who would eventually author nine collections of children's poems, four novels, and a retelling of the Bible, was the first writer to adapt dramatic forms along with the precepts of late eighteenth-century rational education (such as an emphasis on active learning and moral development) to children's poetry. The author demonstrates her pioneering work in two poetry genres: the children's dramatic monologue and the novel-in-verse.' [The Lion and the Unicorn April 2009].
