SAEL, George]
Printed for G. Sael.and sold by M. Poole and Son, London, 1798. viii, 136pp. With an engraved frontispiece. Original publisher's green calf-backed marbled boards, contrasting paper lettering-piece ('1s 6d'). A trifle rubbed, slight chipping to lettering-piece. Both free endpapers torn away, with later manuscript inscription to verso of frontispiece, leaves F3-F4 protruding from text block, occasional spotting. First published in 1797 for George Sael, antiquarian bookseller, circulating library keeper and publisher of moral tracts, Mental amusement is a collection of short juvenile pieces designed 'to form an additional series of lessons for the service of families and schools'. Aiming at 'moral instruction' and variety as a 'vehicle for the communication of it'. Only six of the 29 tales, verses and essays are attributed to specific authors: including three by Anna Seward and two by Sael's long-time collaborator Thomas Park. Of the anonymous pieces, Chapter XVIII, 'On Education and Book. A dialogue' is perhaps worth nothing; it recounts a fictional dialogue on religious works between two 'female friends' of Mrs Day, 'a widow lady' hosting a small party. All editions are scarce, with this second being no exception. ESTC records a single copy in the British Isles (BL), and one further in North America (Toronto). ESTC T147383.

Jenner's paper: pp. 258-284 and pp. 367-399. ¶ First French version, and the first translation at all of this important work in the history of medicine, being the foundation of all subsequent work in immunology and virology. Published the same year as the English original."On the basis of an old country tradition that milkmaids who had contracted cowpox were not susceptible to smallpox, Jenner, an English country physician, decided to experiment by injecting cowpox-infected lymph into a local boy. After inoculation the boy was found to be immune to smallpox and Jenner continued his experiments. In 1798 he published the present epochal work, the results of a long and successful series of case histories. By 1803 his work had been translated into numerous languages and his method of immunization was taken up with amazing speed, becoming almost universally adopted. Garrison has called Jenner's work "one of the greatest triumphs in the history of medicine" (Fielding H. Garrison, An introduction to the history of medicine).Heirs of Hippocrates: 1086. - Garrison & Morton 5423; Osler 1251; Waller 5136; Wellcome … [Click Below for Full Description]

Spallanzani was one of the first to reject spontaneous generation with arguments similar to those expressed by Pasteur nearly a century later. In 1788 Spallanzani travelled in the Two Sicilies, mainly in order to correct deficiencies in the vulcanic collection of the Museum of Natural History in Modena. Southern Italy had suffered for five years from intense eruptive and seismic activities. Messina was still in ruins and the countryside devastated. Vesuvius, near Naples, Stromboli and Vucano on the Eolian Isles, and Etna on the Island of Sicily, remained active. Spallanzani visited them all, undauntedly making several perilous ascents that involved great physical endurance. As such he became one of the founders of Vulcanology."Spallanzani (1729-1799), the illustrious professor of Pavia, Reggio, and Modena,...devoted his earlier life to animal and vegetable physiology, and was fifty years of age before he began to tur … [Click Below for Full Description]

[8], 320 pp. 5480 lots; 28 pp., 56 group lots, containing several thousand coins and medals; [2], 54 pp., 579 lots of books + 20 lots of antiquities. Contemporary French quarter sheep over decorated paper boards (lower joint and upper headcap chipped), vellum corner tips, marbled edges. Two tax-stamps on verso of Catalogue I. and passim., some unobtrusive traces of damp in margins; final leaf Catalogue III. a little soiled; occasional unimportant age-toning here and there. Good copy. Interesting Sammelband of sale catalogues of coins and medals, and also the library of Capmartin de Chaupy (1720-1798) who amassed his own collection of antiquities, coins and medals. Ad 1: Goesin-Verhaeghe's huge numismatics catalogue is a monument to his incredible industry; thousands of coins and medals are here described according to the system proposed in Joseph Eckhel's 8-volume "Doctrina Mumorum Veterum" (Vienna, 1792-1798). Ad 2: The collection of coins and medals belonging to Pierre-Antoine de Milly was divided into 56 group lots, which betrays the fact that there were thousands, and that these took two days to disperse. Milly's library was sold in the same year Ad 3: French archeologist Bertrand Capmartin de Chaupy (1720-1798) deserves some credit in the early excavations of the country villa of Horace. Easily the most important item in the sale was lot 467, a cosmographical manuscript of great beauty and curiosity from Thailand, written in "Baly, langue savante de Siam."

NOGARET (François Felix).
A Paris, chez la veuve Galletti, Lepetit, Desenne, an VI de la République (1798). 2 tomes en 1 volume in-8. 1f. 239pp. 2ff. chiffrés erronément 206, 561, 198 et 10. + 1f. 224pp. Demi-maroquin à coins, dos à nerfs orné (Reliure de la seconde moitié du XIXe siècle, un peu frottée). Edition Originale très rare, absente des collections de la Bibliothèque Nationale, de ce recueil de contes libres de François Felix Nogaret (1740-1831), auteur de plusieurs ouvrages érotiques. "Ses écrits se distinguent par une teinte philosophique assez accentuée et par une prétention à l'originalité qui dégènère souvent en bizarrerie" (Larousse). "Tous ces contes ne sont pas licencieux. Un des meilleurs qui est intitulé "Le Sabre", et qui contient une leçon hardie de justice et de générosité pour les rois, avait été goûté par Louis XVI" (Biographie universelle et portative des contemporains). Plusieurs fois réimprimés, ils furent mis à l'index à Vienne. Notre exemplaire est enrichi d'une lettre autographe signée de l'auteur et datée du 7 avril 1829. Adressée à un "cher et ancien camarade", elle concerne une demande, vraisemblablement financière, faite par Nogaret en récompense de ses services. Correction de la main de l'auteur à un feuillet. Bel exemplaire, à grandes marges et soigneusement établi au 19e siècle. Manque au catalogue de la BNF. Gay, p. 146. Biographie universelle et portative des contemporains, p. 778.

Darwin, Erasmus
Dublin: J. Chambers, 1798. First Dublin Edition. Hardcover. 12mo, [8], 184 pages; VG; newly rebound in 1/4 brown leather, dark gray cloth, dark green label with gilt lettering to spine; previous endpapers preserved; title page has a piece torn off from the upper fore corner, no text impacted; slight waving to pages; scarce; shelved case 10. Originally published in London in 1797, followed by a Dublin and a Philadelphia edition in 1798;Darwin regretted that a good education had not been generally available to women in Britain in his time, and drew on the ideas of Locke, Rousseau, and Genlis in organizing his thoughts. Addressing the education of middle class girls, Darwin argued that amorous romance novels were inappropriate and that they should seek simplicity in dress. He contends that young women should be educated in schools, rather than privately at home, and learn appropriate subjects. These subjects include physiognomy, physical exercise, botany, chemistry, mineralogy, and experimental philosophy. They should familiarize themselves with arts and manufactures through visits to sites like Coalbrookdale, and Wedgwood's potteries; they should learn how to handle money, and study modern languages. Darwin's educational philosophy took the view that men and women should have different, capabilities, skills, spheres, and interests, where the woman's education was designed to support and serve male agency, accomplishment and financial reward and relieve him from daily responsibility for children and chores of life. In the context of the times, this program may be read as a mo … [Click Below for Full Description]

GODWIN, William
London: printed for J. Johnson: and G.G. and J. Robinson, 1798. 8vo., engraved portrait frontispiece (a little browned and very slightly offset), (2) + 199 + (2)pp., including the errata leaf, but without the half-title and the advertisement leaves, in a fine post-1880 Riviere* binding of brown half morocco over marbled boards, spine gilt and labelled, top edge gilt, others uncut. A choice copy. First edition. Written by Godwin himself following the marriage of Mary and William in March 1797, the birth of Mary Godwin that August and Mary Wollstonecraft's death in September. Godwin's frank account of his wife's life shocked contemporary readers. 'The modern reader is likely to be moved by the Life> and Godwin's spare, honest, account of it. But at the time of violent reaction against the French Revolution, its ideology and its British sympathisers, the frank record was a gift to conservative polemicists and it was lavishly exploited. Wollstonecraft became a whore whose books aimed, in the words of the Anti-Jacobin, at the propagation of whores.' [Todd & Butler, pp. 12-13]. Nonetheless, Godwin has, in the 20th century, received considerable, and frequently hostile, attention from feminists because of these Memoirs.> * 'Bound by Riviere & Son'.

John Robison
Philadelphia: T. Dobson and W. Cobbet, 1798. First American Edition. Full Leather. Very Good binding. A copy of the First American Edition of Robison's Illuminati, stated Third Edition,which includes a Postscript not found in the First British Edition. The inventor of the siren and a Scottish Professor at Glasgow and Edinburgh, John Robison became a conspiracy theorist near the end of his life. Following the French Revolution, he was convinced that the Illuminati had infiltrated the upper echelons of the Revolution and the Free Masonry. This is a classic work of conspiracy theory, and even provoked a response from the famous Free Mason, George Washington, who claimed that the doctrines of the Illuminati and Jacobinism had certainly been spread in the United States, but not willfully by the Free Masons as a whole. Textblock is toned and foxed, with writing on the front endpaper. Bound in mottled calf, with rules and a red morocco label on the spine. Some wear to the edges of the spine. The edges of the front and rear endpapers and flyleaves are toned. Very Good binding.

The atlas bound in half marbled calf with full gilt spine, marbled paper sides matching the marbled end papers in the text vols. The antique spot marble paper, originally a German marbled paper, became popular in England in the late 1700s and was associated with many calf and sheep bindings of this period. Tree calf was a new process and fashionable at the time. Tree calf bindings do not date back earlier than the 1770’s, as it would have been an expensive endeavour at the time. Tree calf binding was only practiced by two binders at this point, as the process takes time to perfect. Vancouver served on Cook's second and third voyages.

Braam Houckgeest, Andreas Everard von: Moreau de Saint-Mery, M.L.E., translator & editor
Philadelphia, 1798. Two volumes. lxxx,437; xii,520pp. plus nine plates and three folding maps. Quarto. 19th-century three-quarter calf, spines gilt. Minor edge wear. Tape repairs to one map, foxing. Very good. The rare first edition of this important source on 18th-century China, with a dedication to George Washington. Braam Houckgeest, a Dutch émigré to the United States, settled in South Carolina in 1783 and, in due course, acquired citizenship of the newly formed United States of America. Houckgeest was one of the first Americans to visit China, on a trading mission with the Dutch East India Company in 1795. He is often described as the first American to travel to Beijing and to be presented at the Imperial Court. [His] account of the embassy is of particular value for the detailed descriptions of many parts of China which had never before been visited by Europeans. The original manuscript was written in Dutch and translated and edited by Moreau de Saint-Méry, a French bookseller in Philadelphia. The present work includes a two-sheet folding map of China; a long description, with folding plan, of Macao; an explanation of the Chinese game of chess, with a board and several pieces pictured on a plate in the second volume; and a paraphrase of Chon-fon-kau, possibly only the third work of Chinese theatre in a European language. A number of piracies of Braam Houckgeest appeared soon after publication, but these, and their translations, are all limited to the text of the first volume of this edition, and reproduce none or very few of the illustrations … [Click Below for Full Description]

Marcel, [Jean Joseph]
Alexandria, Imprimerie orientale et française, an VI. Small 4to. 16 pp. Modern brown half calf with red label to giltstamped spine, bound to style. The first book ever printed in Egypt, unquestionably the rarest and most important of the early books printed in the Middle East, published in the very year when modern printing was introduced to the Arab world. Only in October 1798 did J. J. Marcel arrive in Cairo with his employees and types to organize the Imprimerie Orientale. "The expedition of Napoleon Bonaparte to Egypt from 1798 until 1801 was a prelude to modernity. It was to change permanently the traditional Arab world [...] The French brought Arabic typography to Egypt, where it was practised under the supervision [...] of Jean Joseph Marcel [...]. Only a few days after the French troops landed [...] they set up the Imprimerie Orientale et Française there. It was an extraordinarily important turning point. For, leaving aside the Hebrew printing presses in Egypt of the 16th to the 18th centuries, until this date announcements and news adressed to Arabs there, as well as in other parts of the Arab-Islamic world, had been spread only in hand-writing or orally, by criers, preachers or storytellers" (Glass/Roper). - Slightly spotty in places, but well preserved.

SMITH (Adam), CONDORCET (Marie Louise Sophie de GROUCHY, marquise de)
Paris, F. Buisson, An 6 de la République [1798]. 2 volumes in-8, plein veau raciné de l'époque, dos lisses richement ornés de compartiments entièrement garnis de filets, palettes, résilles et fers spéciaux, pièces de titre et de tomaison de maroquin rouge et brun, tranches jaspées, viij, 466 p. et (4), 511 p. Première édition de la traduction de référence de Sophie Grouchy de Condorcet, faite sur la septième anglaise, suivie des huit "lettres sur la sympathie" en édition originale. Dans cet important essai adressé à Cabanis son beau-frère, Sophie de Condorcet traite des spécificités de la philosophie française des Lumières par rapport à la tradition écossaise et fait l'analyse philosophique et épistémologique du concept de "sympathie", en présentant sa propre philosophie morale. "C’est dans les plus douloureuses épreuves, au moment de l’arrestation de son mari en juillet 1793, qu’elle écrivit ses ‘Lettres sur la sympathie’ et ne les publia qu’en 1798 ( ). Au cœur des haines sociales et politiques, Sophie de Condorcet nous donne son diagnostic sur la Terreur tout en dissertant sur la compassion et sur l’amour comme si de rien n’était. Cela plaira à Mme de Staël et à Stendhal" (J.-C. Bonnet, Préface, Rivage, 2016). (Vanderblue collection of Smithiana, p. 41. Manque à Einaudi, Goldsmiths, et Kress). Quelques rousseurs et brunissures. Bel exemplaire, très bien relié à l'époque. [Attributes: First Edition]

Qualche volpe pallido. Strappare il margine esterno sull'asse di Narina. François Levaillant (1753-1824) è un esploratore e ornitologo francese. Nel 1781, il tesoriere della Compagnia olandese delle Indie orientali lo mandò a Cape Province, in Sudafrica. Ha raccolto numerosi esemplari nella regione, producendo oltre 2.000 pelli di uccelli in Francia. Tutti i suoi libri sono stati un grande successo in tutta Europa. La sua collezione ornitologica si unirà al museo di Leida, Francia non essendo acquirente. Alcuni nomi di uccelli che immagina sono ancora in uso. Qualche tempo dopo, le specie porteranno il suo nome, come il Cuckoo di Levaillant. Nella prefazione, l'autore racconta della sua infanzia in Suriname e le sue prime passioni come collezionista. Il libro contiene interessanti descrizioni degli Hotentots e dei Gonaquais, delle loro abitudini e abitudini. Il libro fu un grande successo, probabilmente dovuto alla narrativa colorata e avventurosa dell'autore. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Nouvelle édition, illustrée de 20 planche … [Click Below for Full Description]

Braam Houckgeest, Andreas Everard von: Moreau de Saint-Mery, M.L.E., translator & editor
Philadelphia, 1798. Two volumes. lxxx,437; xii,520pp. plus nine plates and three folding maps. Quarto. 19th-century three-quarter calf, spines gilt. Minor edge wear. Tape repairs to one map, foxing. Very good. The rare first edition of this important source on 18th-century China, with a dedication to George Washington. Braam Houckgeest, a Dutch émigré to the United States, settled in South Carolina in 1783 and, in due course, acquired citizenship of the newly formed United States of America. Houckgeest was one of the first Americans to visit China, on a trading mission with the Dutch East India Company in 1795. He is often described as the first American to travel to Beijing and to be presented at the Imperial Court. [His] account of the embassy is of particular value for the detailed descriptions of many parts of China which had never before been visited by Europeans. The original manuscript was written in Dutch and translated and edited by Moreau de Saint-Méry, a French bookseller in Philadelphia. The present work includes a two-sheet folding map of China; a long description, with folding plan, of Macao; an explanation of the Chinese game of chess, with a board and several pieces pictured on a plate in the second volume; and a paraphrase of Chon-fon-kau, possibly only the third work of Chinese theatre in a European language. A number of piracies of Braam Houckgeest appeared soon after publication, but these, and their translations, are all limited to the text of the first volume of this edition, and reproduce none or very few of the illustrations … [Click Below for Full Description]
