        Voyage autour du monde, publiee conformement au decret du 22 Avril, 1791, et redige par L(ouis) A(ntoine) Milet-Mureau.

      London, Hamilton, 1799 - LII, 539; VIII, 522 S. 1 Porträt. (Atlas:) 1 Kupfertitel und 69 (davon 31 Karten) teils gefalt. Kupfertafeln. Im Jahr der ersten englischen Ausgabe (erstmals auf Französisch in Paris 1797 erschienen). - Sabin 38961. Cox I, 67. Howes L 93. Forbes I, 309. - "La Pérouse`s expedition was one of the most important scientific explorations ever undertaken to the Pacific and the west coast of North America" (Hill Collection 972 zur EA). - "In 1783 the French government resolved to send an expedition to the Pacific to complete Captain James Cook`s unfinished work, and in particular to explore the passages in the Bering Sea, which had been a mystery to Europeans since the sixteenth century. King Louis XVI himself took a hand in drafting the plan and itinerary, a copy of which is in the Municipal Library at Rouen, France, and when La Pérouse was selected to lead the fleet gave him an audience before he sailed. In command of two ships, La Boussole and L`Astrolabe (Commandant de Langle), he left Brest on 1 August 1785 making for Brazil. Doubling Cape Horn he refitted in Chile, then sailed to the Sandwich Islands and thence to Alaska, where he turned south exploring and surveying the coast as far as California. After a short refit at Monterey, he sailed across the Pacific, discovered uncharted islands, and visited Macao and Manila. After six weeks reprovisioning and refreshing he left on 10 April 1787 to survey the coasts and territories north of Korea, which had been described and commented on by Christian missionaries. He sailed up the Gulf of Tartary, naming several points on both its shores and learned that Sakhalin was an island. In September he put in to Kamchatka to replenish his supplies. From there he dispatched an officer, Lesseps, overland to Paris with accounts of his discoveries, while he turned south making for New Holland. In December, at Tutuila, Samoa, which Bougainville had called the Navigator Islands when he explored them in 1768, natives suddenly attacked a party from L`Astrolabe seeking water and killed de Langle and eleven others. La Pérouse left without taking reprisals and sailed through the Pacific Islands to Norfolk Island and to Botany Bay. He was sighted off the coast there on 24 January 1788 but bad weather prevented his entering the bay for two days. By then Governor Arthur Phillip had sailed to Port Jackson, but John Hunter had remained with the Sirius and the transports, and assisted La Pérouse to anchor. He established a camp on the northern shore, now called after him, and maintained good relations with the English during his six-week stay. He sailed on 10 March and was not heard of again. His disappearance led the French government in 1791 to equip another expedition under Bruny d`Entrecasteaux to look for him, but the search was fruitless" (Australian Dictionary of Biography). - Die Text-Bde. leicht gebräunt und nur wenig fleckig.

Compten Rhodes, in his edition of the Plays and Poems of Sheridan ascribes a date of circa 1799 based on the use of the short "s" (cf. Rhodes, R.C. Plays & Poems of Richard Brinsley Sheridan, II, p. 171). The Ewling imprint is fictitious, as is, perhaps, the location of the printing.Sheridan's masterpiece was first performed 8 May 1777 on Drury Lane, running for twenty nights, and revived the next season for a further sixty-five performances. No authorized edition was printed in Sheridan's lifetime. This edition differs considerably from the author's manuscript and was possibly adapted from a performance.[Bound with:]OTWAY, Thomas.

Jolies reliures de l'époque pleine. Dos lisses ornés de bandes dorées. Pièces de titre et de tomaison en maroquin rouge. Quelques minimes rousseurs isolées, sinon papier très frais. Atlas en demi-basane à coins. ‎Par rapport à l'édition originale anglaise (A Narrative of five years' expedition against the revolted negros of Surinam, London, 1796) on a ajouté à cette traduction le "supplément au Voyage à Surinam" par Lescallier, une correspondance entre un hollandais et un français et un "Tableau de la colonie de Cayenne" par Henry, le traducteur. Stedman servait dans un corps de troupes anglaises que le gouvernement britannique avait envoyé en Guyane, à la demande des Hollandais, pour les aider à lutter contre les insurrections des esclaves de la colonie. Cette relation de Stedman atteste des traitements et des supplices que les colons faisaient subir aux autochtones. Outre l'aspect historique, ce voyage offre un tableau complet "dans les trois règnes de la nature; et les divers genres de culture". Paris, Buisson, 1799. Hardcover. Very good. Tree 8vo volumes plus one 4to atlas volume. Atlas volume is illustrated with 44 engraved plates and maps. VIII+410 ; 440 ; 506 pages. Contemporary full mottled calf with gilt –bordered covers and decorative spines. Paris, Buisson, 1799 (VII). Overrall a good set of this important book. Stedman vividly describes the natural surroungings of Suriname as well as the brutal conditions endured by slaves. It would become an influential work for the early abolitionists. Very nice copy.

        Das Labyrinth oder Der Kampf mit den Elementen, (Zweyter Theil der Zauberfloete.)... Klavier Auszug von Joh: Henneberg... No. 1219. Preis f 10 _ ? [Piano-vocal score]

      Offenbach a/M: Johann André [PN 1219], 1799. An early edition. Rare. Matthäus, p. 365. RISM W1342. Cf. BUC p. 1085 and Hirsch IV 1306. Das Labyrinth was first performed in Vienna at the Freihaus-Theater auf der Wieden on June 12, 1798. "Among the numerous sequels to Die Zauberflöte that appeared in the 1790s, this work served as the official 'second part' to Mozart's opera, [Emanuel] Schikaneder himself providing the libretto and producing the opera." Linda Tyler in Grove Music Online. "[Winter's] importance lies in the skill with which he fused his various stylistic ingredients...There are constant reminders of Mozart, and in the choruses Gluck's idiom is found alongside features of the German, Italian and French operatic traditions. But everything is held together by the consistently attractive melodic style that Winter's long experience had taught him, whether he was writing in a pathetic, aria-like vein or in a songlike popular manner. Increasingly he wrote large-scale, through-composed complexes of scenes in a bold, chromatic harmonic style, and with a fine sense of sonority that depends for its effect on varied instrumentation and dynamic contrast. In these respects Winter, the follower of Mozart, heralds the beginnings of German Romantic opera." Anna Amalie Abert and Paul Corneilson in Grove Music Online.. Oblong folio. Contemporary light brown paper boards with the printed label of Nürnberg music sellers Riegel and Wiessner with manuscript titling to upper. 1f. (recto title, verso blank), 3-193, [i] (blank) pp. Engraved. Boards worn and detached; spine lacking. Minor foxing and soiling.

The Naval Chronicle is THE source for contemporary reports of the affairs of the Royal Navy during the period from the Napoleonic Wars to the War of 1812. It was published in London twice a year between 1799 and 1818. First-person accounts were contributed by officers as illustrious as Nelson, and biographies of fascinating characters like Cochrane were a staple. In addition the thousands of pages of this journal contain a wealth of historical nuggets and recondite facts. Typical issues featured lists of vessels captured and wrecked, promotions, accounts of battles, biographical sketches, articles on technological advances, and tidbits of naval gossip, as well as copper engraved portraits of officers, views of foreign ports, and charts of harbors and battles. It was a major source for Patrick O'Brian in writing his Aubrey-Maturin series. This is a complete set, bound in worn calf over marbled boards. A couple of boards are detached but present. However, the texts are in excellent condition, untrimmed, with many of the volumes partially or entirely unopened.

In total, there are 415 (of 416) copper engraved portraits and views, 88 maps and charts (eight folding), and over 60 wood engraved vignettes after drawings by artists such as Pocock. Plates and text are clean, Forty volumes, complete.

        Le Nouveau Paris.

      À Paris, chez Fuchs, Ch. Pougens et Ch. Fr. Cramer, s.d., (1798-1799), - 6 tomes en 3 vol. in-8, demi-veau fauve à petits coins, dos lisses ornés, filets et fleurons dorés (rel. de l'époque). Cachet sur la page de faux-titre, discrète étiquette de bibliothèque au dos, quelques rousseurs mais bon exemplaire. Première édition. Dix ans après son Tableau de Paris, Mercier (1740-1814) se présente comme "l'ami et le collaborateur de la grande régénération entreprise pour la félicité publique". En effet, en fin observateur des m?urs de ses contemporains, il porte un regard sur la Révolution en laquelle il vit la réalisation de ses aspirations et dont il donne un témoignage contrasté, parfois contradictoire mais toujours nourri de remarques bien senties. Partisan résolu de la Révolution, il commence par expliquer son caractère soudain par les interventions secrètes du gouvernement anglais, pour louer ensuite la cocarde tricolore et exprimer sa satisfaction de la proclamation de la République le 21 sept. 1792. Membre pro-girondin de la Convention ? ce qui lui valut d'être emprisonné pendant un an ? il dresse un violent réquisitoire contre la Terreur dont il critique les "fureurs populacières" et les "atrocités". De fait, il retient deux grandes dates dans le fil des évènements, celle du 14 juillet et celle de la mort de Robespierre, la première comme expression de la liberté, la seconde, de la justice. Ainsi, par sa profession de foi ? "Je suis un modéré" (chap. CXCIX) ? il souligne le rôle du modérantisme pour amener la Révolution "à son salutaire terme" et place sa ligne de conduite à égale distance entre les agitations "terroristes" et le retour de la monarchie. Enfin, tout au long des nombreux chapitres, véritables Propos avant la lettre, il apparaît comme "un brasseur de mots, un manieur de la langue politique" (Dorigny) dont il se plaît à scruter les mutations du vocabulaire. Il reprendra cette partie innovante dans sa Néologie (1801) et Mon Dictionnaire (1802). Exemplaire convenable mais avec des défauts (usures aux coins, quatre coiffes supérieures abîmées, l'une arasée, pièces de titre écaillées, rousseurs, parfois fortes, et marges de trois feuillets fragiles ou réduites). Lacombe, 388.

        Panorama, Leicester Square. Short account of lord nelson's defeat of the french at the nile

      [London]: J. Adlard, Printer, [1799]. Single leaf broadside. With elaborate circular woodcut naval design surrounding a central narrative of the battle. Uncut. Folded horizontally and vertically, some creasing, small central hole and closed tear (both without loss). With manuscript scoring through the word Margate. A rare survival of an advertisement for the 1799 Barker representation of the Battle of the Nile, a celebration of that most decisive of British eighteenth-century Naval engagement which saw Nelson defeat the French mediterranean Fleet and frustrate Napoleon's extra-European ambitions at Aboukir Bay, near Alexandria, in August 1798. The notion of producing 360-degree landscape panoramas struck Irishman Robert Barker (1739-1806) during a walk on Calton Hill, Edinburgh. Various technical issues, such as the curvature of straight lines when drawings were presented in a circle, were solved in his patented architectural design entitled 'Contrivance or apparatus called "La Nature a Coup d'Oeil" for displaying Views of Nature at large', which involved various novel design features to distract from the edges of the work and so immerse spectators in the spectacle. His innovation in landscape painting drew crowds on tour and was, by 1793, coined as a 'panorama' and firmly ensconced within a bespoke rotunda of the same name on Leicester Square, London. The aftermath of the 1798 victory and the reputation which it secured the Navy in general and Nelson in particular proved a perfect topic for Barker, who described the atmospheric scene in contemporary newspaper reports: 'though seen by daylight, appears as in the action at 10 at night, the whole seeming lighted only by the fire from the ships, and those blown up and burning, producing an effect of destruction seldom seen by the oldest seaman'. ESTC locates only four copies in British libraries (BL, Bedfordshire Record Office, Oxford, Reading) and just two in North America (Harvard and Yale). ESTC T155139/T48072.. Dimensions: 330 x 410mm.

IV with folding engraved plate and two supplements, "Supplément au dixième livre du Traité de mécanique céleste. Sur l'action capillaire" (pp. [2], 1-65); and Supplément à la théorie de l'action capillaire (pp. 1-78), one unnumbered leaf with "Table des matières" on recto and the "errata" on verso bound at end; vol. V with "Supplément au 5e volume du Traité de mécanique céleste." dated 1827 (pp. [2], 1-35) bound at end. Vol. V without the section titles as usual (not issued in this print). Vols. Ib, IIb and III to V in the original pink mottled wrappers with original printed spine labels and additional hand-lettered shelf-mark labels, pages untrimmed, housed in a custom-made cassette (spines sun-faded, chipping and wear to spines and extremities, wrappers partially torn with some loss). Vols. Ia and IIa in contemporary marbled calf with rich gilt-decoration, gilt-lettered morocco spine labels and marbled endpapers (spine leather partly soiled and darkened, spine ends chipped, upper hinge of vol. I partly cracked towards head). Upper blank corner of half-title in vol. Ia torn. A few pages little browned, occasional minor spotting, light dampstaining to top blank margin of a few gatherings, otherwise quite crisp and clean. A very fine set, mostly in original condition, rarely found as complete as here with all the supplements present. ---- Dibner, Heralds of Science 14; Grolier/Horblit 63; PMM 252; Sparrow, Milestones of Science 125; Norman 1277; Roberts-Trent, p.197. LAPLACE'S FUNDAMENTAL WORK ON CELESTIAL MECHANICS. FIRST EDITIONS OF ALL PARTS, with the first two volumes Ia and IIa in FIRST ISSUE and bound around 1800 in fine calf. Volumes III to V together with the 2nd edition of volumes Ib and IIb form a uniform set as issued. Published over a period of 27 years, Laplace's monumental work codified and developed the theories and achievements of Newton, Euler, d'Alembert and his contemporary Lagrange. In the tradition of Newton's Principia, Laplace "applied his analytical mathematical theories to celestial bodies and concluded that the apparent changes in the motion of planets and their satellites are changes of long periods, and that the solar system is in all probability very stable" (Dibner 14). Newton remained uncertain with respect to the continuity of our solar system. In this work, Laplace also offered explanations unsolved by his predecessors and contemporaries. He "offered a brilliant explanation of the secular inequalities of the mean motion of the moon about the earth - a problem which Euler and Lagrange had failed to solve. He proved that these irregularities are connected with certain solar actions and changes in the orbit of the earth. He also investigated the theory of the tides and calculated from them the mass of the moon" (PMM 252). The first four volumes of the work appeared from 1799 through 1805, and contain the laws of mechanics for their application to the motions and figures of the heavenly bodies. The final parts of the fourth volume and the entire fifth volume really constitute a separate work and contain important material on physics not already included in the original sequence. Our set contains the first state title-pages in the first two volumes Ia and IIa, with French Republican dates only and without the added Berlin imprint (printed for European distribution). Only few sets have survived in its original wrappers. - Visit our website for additional information and images. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        PROCEEDINGS ON THE IMPEACHMENT OF WILLIAM BLOUNT, A SENATOR OF THE UNITED STATES FROM TENNESSEE, FOR HIGH CRIMES AND MISDEMEANORS

      Philadelphia, 1799. 102pp. Half morocco and cloth boards, spine stamped in gilt. Titlepage mounted on tissue, with interior tear at lower left. Several leaves with small tears, one leaf with marginal section torn away, lower corner of outer leaf repaired, slightly affecting text. Good. Official proceedings of the trial of Tennessee senator William Blount, the first United States federal official against whom impeachment charges were brought. Blount was heavily involved in land speculation in the South and feared that France would gain control of the Mississippi River. He settled into a conspiracy in which England would seize Louisiana and Florida, and his investments would be protected. The Senate voted to expel Blount, and the House brought impeachment proceedings against him, which were dismissed for lack of jurisdiction. "The Blount trial is an important record of one of the chief conspiracies seeking to carve an empire out of the Spanish border lands in the uncertain era at the end of the 18th century. It set the stage for other shady dealings, culminating in the Burr Conspiracy after the Lousiana Purchase" - Reese. HOWES B548, "aa." SERVIES 732. COHEN 14450. EVANS 36561. SABIN 6002.

See below for more on him & the text upon which this title was based and corrected. *** CONTENTS: The first 3 volumes are the text. A collection of medical science based on actual experience. . Vol. 4-5 contains superb illustrations: the early collection of cells in the primitive egg; early fetus, one with umbilical cord wound around its neck, invitro views of the fetus, growth stages, and twins. Of major importance, was the notice of the two types of twins: mono and dizygotic twins, as the difference being one vs. two separate membranes around each twin. * Volume 6 is an illustrated atlas showing the various progressions of pregnancy, the growth of the fetus, delivery, complications, breech and other abnormal deliveries. . *** WHO WAS KAGAWA: [Katakura's Teacher] . Kagawa began with the publication of his pioneer work SAN RON: BOOK OF OBSTETRICS [1765] in which he "invented" many methods for forced delivery. Kagawa often employed anything he could find as an obstetrical instruments. This work was destined to become the standard authority on obstetrics in Japan for at least 100 years. . Following this work, was the SAN RON YOKU: A BOOK OF OBSTETRICS [1775]. [Please inquire as we may have this book also]. Katakura wrote the present work to correct the errors in the two previous works noted above. It contains realistic and substantial instructions for midwives, the technique of massage, body positions, "shampooing," pharmacopoeia, prescriptions and lists of therapeutic plants & how to combine them for various maladies, increase of mother's milk, a healthy uterus, post-partum recovery &c. . *** THE ILLUSTRATIONS: Views of the pelvic bones [redrawn from Deventer's figures made with no attempt to change the facial features of the fetus to those of a Japanese

        An inquiry into the nature and causes of the wealth of nations.

      London A. Strachan and T. Cadell 1799 - Ninth edition, 3 volumes, 8vo., xii, 499; viii, 518,[v]; viii, 465, [xlix]pp., 1 page ads' at end, modern sprinkled calf-backed marbled boards, vellum tips, red morocco lettering pieces, small stamps to title versos and final page, an excellent set. Adam Smith (1723-1790) "spent ten years in the writing and perfecting of this work, the first edition selling out within six months. It had no rival in scope or depth when published and is still one of the few works in its field to have achieved such an exhaulted status, meaning simply that it has sustained yet survived repeated reading, critical and adulatory, long after the circumstances that prompted it have become the object of historical enquiry".

Straight-grained full green morocco gilt by [Thomas] Barrat, Oxford, with his label to upper fly-leaf, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt (with spines erroneously dated 1790); very lightly rubbed.

The first owner of the book, Sir John Courtenay Throckmorton, 5th Baronet (1754&#150;1819), who most probably had it bound by Barratt, was a descendant of Sir John Throckmorton (1524&#150;80), a member of the English Parliament during the reign of Queen Mary I. He was also a witness to Queen Mary's will. Brooks 734; Graesse V, 229a ("minutieuse" printing).
