        The Englishman's Right; A Dialogue Between a Barrister at Law... 1798

      1798. First Post-Revolution Edition of an Important Work on the Right to Trial by Jury Hawles, Sir John (1645-1716). [Bacon, Francis (1561-1626)]. Brodie, Alexander, Bookseller. The Englishman's Right; A Dialogue Between a Barrister at Law and a Juryman; Shewing, I. The Antiquity, II. The Excellent Designed Use, III. The Office and Just Privileges of Juries by the Law of England (Being a Choice Help for All Who Are Qualified by Law to Serve on Juries). To Which is Prefixed, An Introductory Essay, On the Moral Duty of a Judge. By Lord Bacon. Philadelphia: Printed by John Thompson, of Philadelphia; For Alexander Brodie, 1798. 6, [vii]-viii, [1], [17]-70 pp. Octavo (7-1/2" x 4-1/2"). Contemporary marbled sheep over marbled boards. Light rubbing to extremities, heavier rubbing and a few minor stains to boards, hinges starting. Moderate toning to text, dampstaining in a few places, internally clean. An appealing copy. $950. * Third American edition. First published in London in 1680, and in Boston in 1693 and 1772, this 1798 Philadelphia edition was the first printed after the Revolution. Possibly a response to the recent passage of the Alien and Sedition Acts, it has an interesting preface by the bookseller, Alexander Brodie: "But lest (sic) the title 'The Englishman's Right' should give offence to any, it is proper to observe that the Charter of the Liberties of England is a grant from their kings obtained by force. This charter is the fountain of all their Rights; and among others of the Englishman's Right to be tried by a Jury of his Equals. As Americans we possess the same Right, and Juries by our Laws have the same powers and privileges, as by the Law of England. Neither we or our Ancestors ever were Slaves. We hold our Liberties from God alone, and to him alone are we accountable for the use or abuse of them. It is no mark of Vassalage to borrow instructions from English Jurisprudence. To understand our rights well, we must study them, and endeavour to profit by the experience of other Nations. The better to enable Jurymen to discern between Judge and Prisoner, if a lawless stretch of power should be attempted, of which at present there appears no danger, from the high character of our American Judges, I have prefixed by way of Introduction, Lord Bacon's Essay on the Moral duty of a Judge.

        The Death of Capt. Alexander Hood, who Gloriously Fell in the Moment of Victory on the 21st April last.

      London: Jeffryes & Co, Ludgate Hill, 1 October, 1798. Handcoloured mezzotint measuring 554 x 655 mm. (plate size), framed. Splendid mezzotint depicting the dramatic death of Alexander Hood, a Royal Navy captain who served under Captain Cook in his early career. This appears to be the only published image of Hood, making it an unusual addition to the known gallery of Cook's men. Hood was assigned to the Resolution on 5 March 1772 as a 14 year-old midshipman, taking advantage of his prestigious family connections (he was the first cousin of admirals Lord Hood and Lord Bridport). Hood served under Cook with distinction; during the three year voyage he was nearly crushed by a falling arms chest during a storm in 1773 and was first to sight land in the Marquesas on 6 April 1774. Accordingly, Cook named Hood Island in his honour of his sharp eyed midshipman.Upon return Hood was appointed to service in North American waters where he was promoted captain in 1781 at the age of 23. Hood fought against Napoleonic France, and this mezzotint portrays the his final moments as captain of the British man-of-war Mars. On the evening of 21 April 1798 the Mars ambushed the French frigate Hercule off western Brittany while waiting for the tide to turn. Both vessels were equally matched with 74 guns, and due to the strength of the current the Hercule was unable to manoeuvre. After the exchange of preliminary broadsides the ships became entangled, and an unusually bloody fire fight ensued. The French lost 315 men killed or wounded before surrender while the Mars sustained lighter casualties.Hood was grievously wounded in the thigh and died of blood loss (a detail conspicuously absent in this romantic portrayal of the commander's final moments). He is here pictured receiving the sword of the French captain who likewise died of his wounds, while a lieutenant points to the lowering of the French colours by moonlight through an open window behind the scene. Very good condition.

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

      London: J. Johnson, 1798. Three volumes, octavo, with 42 engraved plates and maps; in contemporary sprinkled calf; 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 (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 few instances of light foxing, rebacked but a very good set.

        Astronomical Observations, made at the Royal Observatory at Greenwich, from the year 1750 to the year 1764

      Oxford: Clarendon Press, 1798. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Folio - over 12 - 15" tall. Vol. 1 and Part 2 of Vol. 2 only, bound in 2 Volumes, (2), LVI, 301, 156, 202 pp.; (2), 396 pp. Contemporary half leather, spines gilt, with labels, rubbed, bumped and somwhat soiled. Spine of vol. 2 torn.. Old stamp on title recto cancelled; glue remnants of ex libris on inner cover.Poggendorff I, Sp. 212 (Bliss) u. 272 (Bradley). - Vol. I of Bradley's astronomical observations..., published by Th. Hornsby, which contains the observations for the years 1750 to 1755. W/o the 2nd volume by Robertson with the observations for the years 1756 to 1762, but with its part 2, which contains the further observations by N. Bliss made between 1762 and 1764. - Bradley succeeded Halley as Astronomer Royal in 1742. On taking up the post he tested and repaired the Greenwich instruments and embarked on an intensive series of star observations. He found that the instruments had become inaccurate and managed to obtain a grant of £1000 from the admiralty to re-equip the observatory. 'As a result, the massive program of observations (at least 60,000) made at Greenwich from 1750 to 1762 attained a very high standard of accuracy, sufficient to make them useful to modern astronomers. The value of his star observations increases with time, for they provide a firm starting point for long-term investigations of stellar motions.' (A. F. O'D. Alexander, DSB 2:388-389a). The preface by Thomas Hornsby gives an account of the new instruments and Bradley's observations, whose publication had been delayed by legal wrangles over the ownership of the Astronomer Royal's observations - almost a re-run of the Flamsteed controversy. Various tables by several authors including Bradley and observations by his successor, Nathaniel Bliss. 17981805. Very Good.

        A New and General Biographical Dictionary; containing an Historical and Critical Account of the Lives and writings of the Most Eminent Persons in every Nation.

      London: G.G. and J. Robinson, J. Johnson, and others, 1798. Fifteen volumes, octavo, a lovely set in contemporary full calf, red spine label; front board of each volume blind stamped with family crest, previous owners name 'J. N. Webb' inscribed on endpaper of each volume. A new and enlarge edition of the great biographical dictionary, prepared under the scrutiny of English clergyman William Tooke (1744-1820). The breadth and scope of the work is impressive, in some degree reflecting the prodigious intellect and energy of its editor. Tooke was a capable translator of German, French and Russian, and as a close friend of the publisher John Nichols was responsible for numerous English editions. Appointed chaplain of the Russia Company at St. Petersburg in 1771, Tooke initiated a long-term correspondence with Nichols and became a primary informant on Russian affairs for the London gentry of the period. Much of the value of the present work lies in its provision of good information outside the standard scope of British biographical sources.

        Comforts of Bath, The

      London: S.W. Fores, 1798. Thomas Rowlandson's Exceptionally Rare 'The Comforts of Bath' With an Original Rowlandson Pen, Ink and Watercolor Drawing for the Fifth Plate ROWLANDSON, Thomas. The Comforts of Bath. London: S.W. Fores, 1798. First edition, complete and exceptionally rare. Oblong quarto (10 1/4 x 12 1/2 inches; 261 x 317 mm.). Average plate size 7 x 9 3/8 inches; 178 x 238 mm. No text or title, as issued. Twelve hand-colored aquatint plates with gray wash borders after Rowlandson, mounted on to mats and stub-mounted (as per Abbey's copy). All plates except #9 with imprints cut from lower margin. Plate #10 with two small, expert and almost invisibly repaired tears to lower margin, only one affecting image. Bound in at the beginning is the original pen, ink and watercolor drawing by Thomas Rowlandson for plate #5 "A Day Out Riding" (4 7/8 x 7 3/8 inches; 124 x 188 mm.). Some occasional light foxing to edges of card mounts only, the plates bright and fresh. Bound by Zaehnsdorf in 1903 (stamp-signed on front turn-in). Full red straight-grain morocco, covers with quadruple gilt border, spine with five raised bands, bordered and lettered in gilt in compartments, gilt ruled board-edges and decorative gilt turn-ins, marbles end-papers, top edge gilt, others uncut. The copy of Joseph Widener with his small leather bookplate on verso of front free-endpaper (Parke-Bernet November, 1944) and also of Clarence S. Bement (old booksellers description at end). Very rare complete set of the first edition, which, according to Tooley, is "one of the rarest of Rowlandson items." Intended to illustrate Anstey's New Bath Guide, but never issued with text. Copies vary as to which and how many plates are signed; this copy has only signed plate (plate #9 - "Rowlandson Fecit - Pub Janu'y 6th 1798 by S.W. Fores"). The Abbey and Tooley copies had six and seven signed plates respectively. We have only seen one other copy of this firts edition which we purchased at Bloomsbury Book Auctions in London in November 2013. There was a reprint in excellent facsimile which was published about 1860 (Abbey, Scenery, 40, note). This series of watercolor drawings gives us Rowlandson's visual satire on the activities at Bath, whether bathing, gaming, dining, sitting for a portrait, enjoying a concert, dancing or romancing.  In each drawing, the figure of the rotund visitor to the Bath, reminiscent of Humphry Clinker's fussy Mr. Bramble, provides one point of view from which to view the scene, while Rowlandson gives us an outsider's view as well. The plates: 1. The Physicians 2. The Concert 3. The Pump Room 4. The Fish Market 5. A Day Out Riding 6. The Portrait 7. The Baths 8. The Games 9. The Dinner 10. The Dancing 11. Public Breakfast 12. Bath Races Joseph Early Widener (1871-1943), the second son of the extremely wealthy transportation and real estate magnate Peter A.B. Widener (1834-1915).

A major figure in Thoroughbred horse racing, he was head of New York's Belmont Park and builder of Miami, Florida's Hialeah Park racetrack. Clarence S. Bement (1843-1923) also a renowned collector of color-plate and caricature. Abbey, Scenery 40. Tooley 408. Prideaux, p. 350. BM Satires 9321.

A loan to the Republic would violate our neutrality: and a douceur to the men now in power might by their successors be urged as a reason for annulling the treaty, or as a precedent for further repeated demands."

        Der Streit der Facultäten in drey Abschnitten von Immanuel Kant. Königsberg: Friedrich Nicolovius, 1798.

      - First edition. Warda 193, Adickes 96a. This book brought together three essays previously written by Kant but blocked by the Religionsexaminations-Kommission headed by the Prussian censor-in-chief, Johan Christoph Wöllner. Following the death of Frederick Willhelm II in November 1797 and the consequent sacking of Wöllner, their publication as "The Conflict of the Faculties" became possible. In the Introduction Kant gives the full text of a 1794 letter of reprimand by Frederick Willhelm and his own answer. He also rejoices that there is now enlightened government again, releasing the human spirit from its chains. 'What follows is a mixed bag. Even though Kant tried to unify these three disparate themes into a book it is only the first essay [on the relation between the philosophical and the theological faculties] that deals with such a conflict The second is indeed an interesting essay [on whether the human race is progressing] but whether it amounts to a discussion of the relation between the faculty of philosophy and the faculty of law may be doubted The third essay [ostensibly on the conflict between philosophy and medicine] is highly interesting for understanding Kant's own view of life and death' (Kuehn, Kant, A Biography, pp. 404-6). PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: 8vo, xxx, 205 pp., early 19th-century marbled boards with red spine label lettered gilt, rubbed at extremities and chipped at spine foot, internally clean and fresh, with no stamps or inscriptions and only isolated light spots, a very good copy.

        Opera. Interepretatione et notis. Illustravit Carolus Ruaeus, Soc. Jesu. Jussu christianissimi Regis, ad usum serenissimi Delphini. Juxta editionem novissimam parisiensem. Huic editioni accessit index accuratissimus, antè editi longè locupletior.

      London: by M. Brown at the expense of G. and G. Ginger [and 11 others], 1798 - Octavo (210 x 122 mm). Bound for presentation in contemporary straight-grain red morocco, Greek-key, floral and vine-leaf rolls gilt to spine forming compartments, elaborate fleur-de-lys and crossed-arrow centrepieces and simple floral cornerpieces gilt, black morocco label, gilt border comprising interwoven feathered and dotted roll-tools to covers, decorate gilt-rolls to board-edges and turn-ins, edges dyed yellow, dark blue coated endpapers. Later book label of J. L. Weir to front pastedown. Spine slightly dry, mild darkening to morocco, light rubbing to corners of boards, superficial score to front, a couple of small markings to rear, a few trivial spots to contents, short neat split to one of the map folds. A lovely copy. Engraved folding map, "Aenae Trojani navigatio". Index separately paginated. Scottish philosopher Sir William Hamilton's copy, presented to him while a pupil in his third year at Glasgow Grammar School, with his prize plate dated 1801 to the front pastedown. Hamilton (1788-1856) entered the school at the age of nine, and began taking Greek and Latin classes at the University of Glasgow in 1800, aged twelve. He was elected professor of logic and metaphysics at the University of Edinburgh in 1836, and "was best-known as the originator of 'the philosophy of the conditioned', a philosophical perspective that combined, or in the eyes of critics inevitably failed to combine, the insights of Thomas Reid with those of Immanuel Kant" (ODNB). His library of 10,000 volumes, purchased after his death for presentation to the University of Glasgow. The so-called Delphin edition of Virgil was the work of French Jesuit scholar Charles de la Rue (1643-1725). First published in 1675, it "did perhaps more than any other single edition has done to advance the study of Virgil" (Lonsdale and Lee, eds., The Globe Edition of the Works of Virgil, p. 7), and was used by Dryden in his translation of the Aeneid. This copy is a particularly handsome example of Regency-era bookbinding, work that Hamilton would have doubtless appreciated, himself being a skilled amateur binder.

From the library of Lord Exmouth, with his book-labels to all front pastedowns. A comprehensive critical examination of European colonialism in the East and West Indies by French Enlightenment writer, Guillaume Thomas Raynal (1713-1796). This compendious historical work discusses Spanish conquests in South America, the Portuguese conquest of Brazil, Russian expeditions in Kamchatka, the English and French colonies of North America, the search for the north-west passage, and trade in the Persian Gulf and Arabia. Despite prohibitions launched against it by the government, the work had a wide circulation with translations being done into a majority of European languages, with the first English edition appearing in 1776. Admiral Edward Pellew, 1st Viscount Exmouth (1757-1833), British officer in the Royal Navy during the American Wars of Independence, French Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars. Promoted Rear-Admiral in 1804, Pellew took command of the East Indies Section, and of the Mediterranean Fleet during 1811-14/1815-16. He purchased the large Bitton House in Teignmouth, Devon, in 1813 - and it is presumably here that his large library was housed. ESTC T121714.. Second edition. 8vo.

        BERTRAND (Comtesse Françoise-Elisabeth née Fanny Dillon)]. Nuova Grammatica Francese Ad Uso Degl'Italiani, E Di Tutti Coloro Che Bramano Di Parlare E Di Scrivere Correttamente La Lingua Francese. Del Sig. Ab. Maurizio Trofimo Reyre.

      Wage, Fleis, Trieste 1798 - In-8 de VI-568-(1) pp., maroquin rouge à grain long, dos lisse orné, pièce de titre en maroquin noir, frise dorée d'encadrement, sur chaque plat large pièce de dédicace en maroquin vert dans un filet doré surmontée d'une soupière à l'oiseau, tranches dorées (reliure de l'époque). Bel exemplaire de présent offert à la comtesse Françoise-Elisabeth Bertrand qui porte sur le plat supérieur l'inscription en capitales dorées : A son Excellence Madame la Comtesse Bertrand née Dillon. Trieste le 9 Fevrier 1812 (suivi sur le second plat en caractères italiques dorés) Ses enfants, son Epoux font son bonheur suprême ; Avec eux de fils d'or sont tissus tous ses jours : Si ses charmes n'étaient ceux de la Vertu même, Qui ne la croirait pas la Mère des Amours ? Le général Henri-Gratien Bertrand Comte de l'Empire en 1808, épousa la même année la petite-cousine de l'Impératrice Joséphine, Fanny Dillon (1785-1836). « En avril 1811, Fanny accompagne son époux, nommé gouverneur général des Provinces Illyriennes. A Trieste, elle joue à la souveraine avec grâce et distinction, gaieté et esprit. Mais la roue tourne. En 1814, Fanny rejoint à l'Île d'Elbe le grand maréchal du Palais, son époux. Les Cent-Jours l'amènent à Paris, puis à Rochefort avec ses trois enfants et bientôt sur le Bellerophon. A l'annonce de l'exil à Sainte-Hélène, Fanny est saisie d'une violente crise de nerfs et tente de se jeter à la mer. Puis la conscience de son devoir lui fait accepter son sort, avec des pleurs et des regrets qui vont durer six ans. » (Jacques Macé, Dictionnaire historique de Sainte-Hélène). La grammaire française de Maurizio Trofimo Reyre imprimée en italien à Trieste, répondait en 1798 à la nécessité d'apprendre la langue du nouvel occupant français bientôt chassé, de retour en 1805, puis en 1809 où la ville fut intégrée aux Provinces illyriennes sous le gouvernement du Comte Bertrand.

        Le Coste Nord Ovest Dell' America e Nord Est Dell' Asia Delineate sulle ultime Osservazioni del Cap. Cook

      Rome: G. M. Cassini, 1798. unbound. Map. Engraving with original hand color. Image measures 14" x 19.25". This unusual map of Alaska, Siberia and the Bering Strait by Giovanni Maria Cassini was published in 1798. The map notes the discoveries made by Captain Cook on his third voyage in the HMS Revolution between 1778 and 1779. The route of his journey is depicted in detail. Several Capes, islands and bays are labeled. This map is among the first to accurately map the Alaskan coastlines and the Aleutian Islands, identified here as "Isole Alessiane" and individually identified by the indigenous names.<br><br>It was during this voyage, that Cook encountered an 'impenetrable wall of ice' in the Arctic as he searched for the Northwest Passage, thus putting to rest the hopes for the discovery of an Arctic Northwest Passage. He would eventually sail southward towards Hawaii, where he would meet his end.<br><br>A beautifully engraved title cartouche illustrates four native American Indians, including a woman feeding a baby. This map appeared in the 1798 edition of Cassini's "Nuovo Atlante Geografico Universale". In good condition with minor wear along the original centerfold. Original plate mark is visible.<br><BR>Captain Cook (1728 -1779) was among the most famous and important explorer, navigator, cartographer and captain of his time, whose scientific and geographical knowledge influenced his successors well into the 20th century. He started sailing as a teenager and went on to join the Royal Navy in 1755. In 1766, he was commissioned to explore the Pacific and went on the sail thousands of miles across largely uncharted regions of the world. These three historic voyages led him to some of the first sightings of Antarctica, his discovery of many Polynesian islands, including the Hawaiian Islands, first European contact with east Australia, the circumnavigation of New Zealand and the first correct mapping of the Pacific Northwest. <br><br>Giovanni Maria Cassini (1745 - 1824) was a geographer, engraver and globe maker based in Rome, Italy. Best known for his globes, his maps stood out for their elaborate engravings, which he did himself, unlike most publishers of the time.

      Dufart VII-XIII (1798-1805), Paris - .nouvelle edition, accompagnée de notes et dans laquelle les supplémens sont insérés dans le premier texte, à la place qui leur convient. L'on y a ajouté l'histoire naturelle des quadrupèdes et des oiseaux découverts depuis la mort de Buffon, celle des reptiles, des poissons, des insectes et des vers; enfin, l'histoire des plantes, dont se grand naturaliste n'a pas eu le tems de s'occuper. Ouvrage formant un cours complet d'Histoire naturelle redigé par C.S. Sonnini. 127 volumi (12,5x20 cm) in bella legatura coeva in piena pelle marmorizzata, cornice dorata ai piatti, dorso liscio ornato e dorato con doppio tassello di titolo e tomagione. --Un volume con rilegatura rifatta a imitazione, alcune cuffie mancanti o altri segni d'uso e del tempo ai margini e agli angoli. Risguardie marmorizzate, testimoni. Set completo di questa famosa edizione, con 1113 tavole quasi tutte colorate a mano e carte geografiche, più circa 30 schemi di classificazione e tabelle. Qualche brunitura a macchia o fioriture, ma bell'insieme di questa monumentale riedizione e aggiornamento dell'opera di Buffon. L'opera è così divisa: Théorie de la terre, 3 tomes; Epoques de la Nature, 1 tome; Histoire des Minéraux, 12 tomes; Des Animaux, 1 tome; De l'Homme, 4 tomes; Quadrupèdes, 13 tomes; des Singes, 2 tomes;; des Oiseaux, 28 tomes; Crustacés et Insectes, 14 tomes; Mollusques, 6 tomes; Reptiles, 8 tomes; Plantes, 18 tomes; Poissons, 14 tomes; Tables analytiques, 3 tomes. Non tutte le tavole sono numerate, e a volte non sono in sequenza, ma corrispondono al testo.Oltre al testo "classico" di Buffon sono assai importanti le integrazioni sulla base delle nuove scoperte scientifiche. Rettili e anfibi sono opera del Dudin, con 100 tavole; i molluschi sono di Denis de Monfort, con 72 tavole; uccelli e pesci sono sviluppati dal Sonnini; gli insetti da Latrelle. In sostanza, i migliori studiosi degli anni a cavallo tra 7 e 8cento furono partecipi dell'opera, rara da trovare così completa e in belle condizioni esterne.

Belle impression sur Grand papier Velin, dont Didot s'était fait une spécialité. L'illustration, abondante et remarquable, se compose de 2 frontispices de Fragonard fils, 144 figures (20x25cm à la planche, et 22,5x32cm) des tableaux historiques de la Révolution Française par Jean-Louis Prieur, Jacques François Joseph Swebach Jean Duplessi-Bertaux, Abraham Girardet, Nicolas-Marie Ozanne, Fragonard et Jean Desaulx. Le troisième tome ou quatrième volume comprend un frontispice 'Déclaration des droits de l'homme et du citoyen", 9 figures et 66 planches contenant 66 portraits en médaillon à la manière noire, 66 bandeaux historiés et le texte gravé en italique.

Absence ou pas, seul le premier volume contient une page de titre après le faux-titre, les autres volumes n'ayant qu'un faux-titre ; en outre le dernier volume évoquant le consulat à vie de Bonaparte, il n'a pu être imprimé qu'en 1802. On notera quant aux faux-titres seulement présents, qu'il en est de même pour l'exemplaire présent à Oxford, celui de l'Université de Londres, et celui de l'université d'Edimbourg, idem pour l'exemplaire de la Royal Academy of Arts. Magnifique exemplaire relié par Bradel à grandes marges, d'une belle fraîcheur. "Une succession chronologique d'événements marquants de la Révolution française, présentés chacun par un texte et illustrés par une gravure. Ce recueil ayant été conçu dans la dynamique de l'actualité qu'il relate, avec un décalage plus ou moins long, constitue un exemple remarquable d'écriture et de représentation contemporaine de l'Histoire. Avec leurs contrefaçons hollandaise et allemande, les gravures des Tableaux historiques véhiculèrent ainsi en Europe, à retardement, mais avec une efficacité incontestable, sinon le souffle de la Révolution française, du moins une nouvelle image de la France au seuil du XIXe siècle" (Claudette Hould, Annie Jourdan, Rolf Reichardt et Stéphane Roy, Musée de la Révolution française, RMN, 2002). Outre les 144 événements marquants de la Révolution Française, présentés et racontés par Chamfort, Fauchet, Guinguéné et Pagès, le troisième tome présente 9 discours préliminaires aux tableaux historiques et 60 notices gravées des acteurs de la Révolution Française (on y trouve le Consul Bonaparte). Ces 9 discours préliminaires sont également des tableaux historiques et viennent en supplément. Les 66 personnages de la Révolution Française n'ont pas été choisis pour leurs bonnes ou mauvaises actions mais plutôt en fonction du rôle qu'ils ont joué dans l'histoire de la Révolution Française. Les Constitutions de 1791 et 1793, de l'an III, La Déclaration des droits de l'homme, sont intercalés entre les portraits. Cette majestueuse publication évoque celles que fit Louis XIV en son temps sur le château de Versailles ou sur ses campagnes militaires et qui étaient destinées à véhiculer la grandeur de la France, le but avoué était ici le même, essaimer les idées et l'extraordinaire aventure de la Révolution Française, non par un panégyrique, mais par une réprésentation imagée et strictement historique des événements. Enfin, il faut remarquer que la Révolution Française s'achève dans l'ouvrage par la nomination de Bonaparte en tant que Consul à vie (le voeu du peuple français pour le Consulat à vie), comme un aboutissement de tant d'événements, une des dernières gravures étant le coup d'état du 18 brumaire.
