      Not in Knuttel; Landwehr, VOC. Ad 1: Broadside concerning the prolongation of the VOC's charter on trade in the East Indies. The texct declares the prolongation of the company's charter with another year, until 31 December 1799. With the unification of the various Dutch companies trading with the East in 1602, the Dutch government granted the new VOC monopoly over the Asian trade, as well as the powers to build forts, maintain armies and conclude treaties.In 1796 the VOC was nationalized and granted a charter, valid until 1798, to finish off current affairs. The charter ended up to be prolonged for two more times, first until December 1799, as stated in this broadside and finally until December 1800.Ad 2: Broadside proclaiming the installation of a new, intermediary board of directors dealing with the Dutch colonies and possessions along the coast of Guinea and in America (the West Indies). It further informs that the former board is annulled, and that the new board, consisting of seven members, will reside at Amsterdam and will hold its first meeting on 1 April 1798.Both broadsides are headed with the emblem of the Batavian Republic, including a personification of the Dutch Maiden and a lion holding the Batavian flag, and the Dutch translation of liberty, equality and fraternity. Ad 1 with two small holes, not affecting the text and some spots. Both broadsides very slightly wrinkled and slightly frayed along the margins, but otherwise in very good condition.

        The School for Scandal. A Comedy

      J. Ewling, Dublin 1799 - Later piracy. vi, 93, [3] pp. 8vo. This Dublin piracy was long thought to be the first edition, and is recorded as such by Wise and Williams. Another Dublin piracy, printed in 1780 is now acknowledged as the first (cf. Nettleton & Case, British Dramatists, p. 941 & Rothschild 1845). R. 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.

Gerard Vidal (1742-1801) was a French publisher/printer; printmaker. Marguerite Gerard (1761-1837) was a French painter and etcher. She was the daughter of Marie Gilette and perfumer Claude Gerard. She was the sister-in-law of Jean-Honore Fragonard, and when she was 14 she came to live with him. She became Fragonard's pupil in the mid 1770's and studied painting, printmaking and drawing with him. Condition: Good, given age. Closed tears in the bottom and right margin. One of the tears into the image. Bottom margin creased and with foxing, margins cropped close to the platemark. General age-related light toning and/or staining from handling.

        Travels in the interior districts of Africa: performed under the direction and patronage of the African Association in the years 1795, 1796, and 1797. With an appendix, containing geographical illustrations of Africa. [WITH] The journal of a mission to the interior of Africa in the year 1805.

      London I. W. Bulmer for the Author II. Murray & 1815 1799 - First editions of both works. 2 volumes in 1, 4to. First work: xxviii, 372, xcii pp., engraved portrait frontispiece, three folding maps and charts, two botanical engraved plates and three copper-engraved plates after drawings by the author, 2 engraved plates of music; Second work: xx, 373pp., engraved folding map. Light toning to apppendix of Travels, contemporary half calf gilt, a very handsome example. Two of the most important and influential books dealing with the exploration of the interior of Africa. Mungo Park, a young Scottish doctor, made his first journey in 1795, in search of the Niger. He spent two years travelling deep into the interior of Africa and his book provides a fine and vivid narrative of his adventures and his coming to grips with civilisations and customs unimagined by this reserved and rather diffident man. The journey was sponsored by the African Association in the hope of solving the riddle of the Niger, no doubt enthused by Bruce's success on the other side of the continent. After the failure of four previous expeditions it sent out Park with instructions "to pass on to the River Niger either by way of Bambouk or by such other route as should be found most convenient and to ascertain the course and, if possible, the rise and termination of that river". Setting out from the Gambia, Park marched east to Bambuk, crossing the Faleme and the Senegal, and on the 20th of July 1796, he "saw with infinite pleasure the great object of my mission - the long sought-for, majestic Niger, glittering to the morning sun, as broad as the Thames at Westminster, and flowing slowly to the eastward".

Der deutsche Mathematiker, Astronom und Physiker Johann Heinrich Voigt (1751 - 1823) war eng mit dem Weimarischen Hof verbunden. Voigts Vater stammte aus mittleren Verhältnissen und starb 1759. Anfänglich durch Privatlehrer ausgebildet, besuchte Johann Heinrich ab 1759 das Gymnasium in Gotha und dann an der Univ. Jena. Zum Professor der Mathematik in Jena berufen, erwarb er sich am 18. April 1789 den akademischen Grad eines Magisters der Philosophie (Dr. phil.) und übernahm am 4. Mai seine neue Stellung. Daneben wurde ihm die Aufsicht über die Erhaltung der zur Universität gehörigen Gebäude, sowie die Leitung des Rechnungswesens der Universität übertragen. 1798 ernannte man ihn zum Hofrat von Sachsen Weimar-Eisenach, 1802 erhielt er zudem die Professur der Physik und 1817 wurde er geheimer Hofrat. Er war Mitglied der gothaischen gemeinnützigen Gesellschaft der Wissenschaften, der hannöverischen Gesellschaft der Wissenschaften in Göttingen, der naturforschenden Gesellschaft in Jena, der mathematisch-physikalischen Gesellschaft in Erfurt, der mineralogischen Gesellschaft in Jena, etc. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      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.

James Boswell, 9th Laird of Auchinleck (29 October 1740 – 19 May 1795), was a Scottish biographer and diarist, born in Edinburgh. He is best known for the biography he wrote of one of his contemporaries, the English literary figure Samuel Johnson, which the modern Johnsonian critic Harold Bloom has said is the greatest biography written in the English language. Boswell's surname has passed into the English language as a term (Boswell, Boswellian, Boswellism) for a constant companion and observer, especially one who records those observations in print. In "A Scandal in Bohemia", Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's character Sherlock Holmes affectionately says of Dr. Watson, who narrates the tales, "I am lost without my Boswell."   Condition Report Externally Spine – good condition – titled in gilt on black labels.

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.

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.

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.

Il sera ainsi le premier occidental à explorer le fleuve Niger. On ne connaissait alors de cette région que ce qu'en avait écrit Pline et Léon l'Africain. Mungo Park part en 1795 pour la Gambie, remontant le fleuve jusqu'au comptoir de Pisania, apprenant le dialecte local. Il traverse le lit du Sénégal, visite le Moullé, le Bondou, le Kaarta. Arrêté par les Maures, il sera prisonnier quatre mois durant puis parviendra à s'échapper par le désert, remontant ensuite le fleuve sur une centaine de kilomètres. Six mois plus tard il gagnera Londres où il publiera le récit de son voyage. Ex libris : Bibliothèque de Pierre Fournier. Taverny.
