        Hudibras, In Three Parts, Written in the time of the Late Wars. with large annotations and a preface by Zachary Grey, LL.D. In two volumes.

      London, by T. Bensley, for Verner and Hood & 8 others in London, 1799 - 2 volumes, large octavo (230 × 143 mm). Contemporary full vellum, covers panelled in blue, double blue lettering-pieces attractively gilt, marbled endpapers, blue sprinkled edges. Lightly rubbed, a little offsetting from plates, an excellent set. Engraved portrait frontispiece, 17 engraved plates by Ridley after Hogarth, woodcut headpieces by Charles Nesbitt, woodcut title vignettes. First edition with Nesbitt's woodcuts of Hudibras, the celebrated mock-epic satirizing the English republicans, with Zachary Grey's notes, which kept Butler's world of outmoded learning accessible to later generations, printed on royal paper. Charles Nesbitt (1775-1838) was a pupil of Thomas Bewick's (indeed, "The best wood engraver that has proceeded from the work shop of Thomas Bewick", according to W. Chatto, A Treatise on Wood Engraving) and the woodcuts here are in Bewick's style, so much so that they are sometimes attributed to him, despite their being clearly signed "C. Nesbitt". Bewick did, however, own a copy of the book - see A Provisional Checklist of The Library of Thomas Bewick, drawn up for The Bewick Society by David Gardner-Medwin. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Cries of London No: 5, Water Cresses, come buy my Water Cresses

      London: Published by R. Ackermann's 101 Strand, 1799. A wonderful image from Thomas Rowlandson's satirical interpretation of the "Cries of London". The "Cries of London" was a re-occurring theme in English printmaking for over three centuries. These colourful prints form a visual record of London's "lower orders", the pedlars, charlatans, street hawkers, milkmaids, and grocers who made their living on the city streets. They give us a glimpse of a long forgotten London where tradesmen would advertise their wares with a musical shout or a melodic rhyme. Different versions of the "Cries" vary in tone from idealistic visions of happy street vendors to satirical caricatures. One of the most famous series of "London Cries" is the group of somewhat sentimental pictures executed by Francis Wheatley. Wheatley's series was immensely popular and enjoyed a long period of success in the English print shops. This popularity undoubtedly inspired Rowlandson to execute his satirical versions of the "Cries". In a set of eight prints, (number seven is missing and not recorded), Rowlandson created a group of witty images mimicking Wheatley's more earnest criers. Under his biting pen the "Cries" metamorphose into lascivious caricatures, Rowlandsonesque versions of London's street people. In this boisterous image, which is number five in the series; Rowlandson depicts an old man standing in front of a brothel. With one hand on the knocker he turns to scowl at the young woman who offers him a bunch of watercress for sale. Simultaneously a small child proffers his watercress. Two courtesans lean out of the window above and smile while the old man attempts to avoid these over-zealous street vendors. George, Catalogue of Political and Personal the British Museum Vol. VII, 9478; Grego, Rowlandson i, 354-355. Coloured aquatint. Early colour. Printed on wove paper. In excellent condition.

        Applausi poetici alla vera rigenerazione del Piemonte operata nel 1799. Dalla divina provvidenza col celebre valore delle armi Austro-Russe.

      Acqui Terme, Giovanni Francesco Arcasio, [1799?]. - 4to. Title page, (8) pp., final blank f. With woodcut arms (intended as those of the Holy Roman Emperor Francis II) on first leaf. Printed in gold throughout. Set in roman type with incidental italic. Gold-brocade decorated paper wrappers, showing an embossed floral pattern (also including grapes) with hunters, a wild boar, deer and dogs scattered through it, in gold, orange, yellow, lavendar and blue. The paper used to make the wrapper is decorated on both sides (from the same block and with the same colour pattern, but with the the whole on the inside upside down) and another piece of the same decorated paper has been used to reinforce the inside of the fold. In modern clamshell box with red morocco spine label. Verses celebrating the repulsion of the French from the walls of Acqui Terme in Piedmont (between Torino and Genoa) by Habsburg Imperial forces on 17 May 1799 during the War of the Second Coalition (1798-1801). It collates: [A]6 = 6 ll., with only the woodcut arms on A1 (verso blank), the title-page on A2r, a "Madrigale" on A2v, 4 numbered poems on A3r-A4v (the first titled "Sonetto" and the fourth explicitly referring to the military confrontation at Acqui Terme on 17 May 1799) and a "Canzone" on A5r-A5v. A6 is blank. Although the imprint explicitly indicates that it is from Arcasio's printing office and that he is printer to the city of Acqui Terme ("Acqui[:] nella stamperìa di Gio Francesco Arcasio stampatore dèll' illustrissima città."), ICCU records no other work under his name and no other publications at Acqui Terme between 1622 and 1805. It records only one other copy of the present work (at the Biblioteca Federico Patetta at the law department of the University of Torino) and neither it nor the library's own catalogue indicates whether it is printed in gold (nor does it describe the binding). That copy may also lack the initial leaf with the coat of arms and its blank conjugate. We have located no other copy. The book must have been printed in a very limited press run. It is dedicated to the general of the Imperial troops, "Baron de Sekendorff", perhaps the successor to Generalleutnant Carl Friedrich Freiherr van Seckendorff (1736-1796). The author calls himself "Regio Segretaro della Prefettura, ed Accademico Torinese". The arms on the first leaf are clearly intended as the arms of the last Holy Roman Emperor, Francis II (reigned 1792-1806). They show a crowned double-headed eagle with a coat of arms on its breast, but the arms on the breast are somewhat roughly rendered and appear to be in mirror image. - The printing shows through the paper slightly, but both the book and the wrapper are in fine condition, with only slight soiling to the wrapper and a couple very minor stains at the foot margin of the last printed page. An extraordinary and extremely rare piece of occasional printing from the War of the Second Coalition: only one copy on ICCU; not in WorldCat. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Teoria Generale delle Equazioni, in cui si dimostra impossibile la soluzione algebraica dell equazioni generali di grado superiore al quarto

      Bologna: Stamperia di S. Tommaso d&#39; Aquino, 1799. First edition. The first statement and proof of the Abel-Ruffini theorem, that the general equation of degree higher than four cannot be solved algebraically. Although Ruffini&#39;s proof was not in general accpeted he developed, in this lengthy treatise, many new fundamental methods and the concept of permutation groups, which was essential to the later work of Abel and Galois. It thus marks the transition from classical to abstract algebra. "The first person to claim that equations of degree 5 could not be solved algebraically was Ruffini. In 1799 he published a work whose purpose was to demonstrate the insolubility of the general quintic equation. Ruffini&#39;s work is based on that of Lagrange but Ruffini introduces groups of permutations. These he calls <i>permutazione</i> and explicitly uses the closure property (the associative law always holds for permutations). Ruffini divides his permutazione into types, namely <i>permutazione semplice</i> which are cyclic groups in modern notation, and <i>permutazione composta</i> which are non-cyclic groups. The <i>permutazione composta</i> Ruffini divides into three types which in today&#39;s notation are intransitive groups, transitive imprimitive groups and transitive primitive groups." (MacTutor History of Mathematics). Two volumes bound in one. Small 4to: 207 x 147 mm. Contemporary half-calf with gilt lettering on spine. Old inoffensive repair to the first and second pages of the introduction. A very good copy. viii, 206, (4:errata); (2:title), 207-509, (7:errata) and two large folding tables.

        Chart of the World on Mercator's Projection Exhibiting all the New Discoveries to the present Time: with the Tracks of the most distinguished Navigators since the Year 1700, carefully collected from the best Charts, Maps, Voyages &c. Extant . And regulated from the accurate Astronomical Observations, made in three Voyages Perform'd under the Command of Capt. James Cook

      A. Arrowsmith, No. 24 Rathbone Place, London 1799 - The best world map published at the end of the 18th century, incorporating all of the discoveries made on Cook's great voyages, exhibiting new discoveries in the Pacific, as well as in the Arctic and along the northwest coast of America. Arrowsmith's first map and a major cartographic rarity. Aaron Arrowsmith was the founder of one of the leading London map publishing houses in the early part of the nineteenth century. He came to London about 1770 from Durham, his birthplace, and worked as an assistant to William Faden and as a surveyor for John Cary for whom he carried out some of the road surveys which subsequently appeared in Cary's Travellers' Companion . In 1790, Arrowsmith set up his own business in Long Acre and soon established an international reputation. "Aaron Arrowsmith, Hydrographer to the King of England and Geographer to the Prince of Wales, was the most influential and respected map publisher of the first quarter of the nineteenth century . His role in cartographic production was to gather the best information available from a wide variety of sources, weigh the relative merits of conflicting data, and compile from this the most accurate depiction possible of an area. Arrowsmith accomplished this synthesis better than any other commercial map maker of his day and, as a result, his maps were the most sought after and highly prized on three continents" (Martin & Martin, p. 113.) Arrowsmith specialized in monumental multi-sheet maps. These were generally separately issued and are now very scarce. "We find [Arrowsmith] in 1790 established in Castle Street, Long Acre, where at great cost and labour, he brought out his first effort in map-making, A Chart of the World upon Mercator's Projection . This chart, now rare, was published 1 April 1790" (DNB). It is stated elsewhere that "he made himself famous by his large chart of the world on Mercator's projection" (Encyclopedia Britannica). When published in 1790, this map was not only Arrowsmith's first map, but also the first separately-issued English world map to show Cook's discoveries from all three of his voyages. While a seminal piece for any Cook collection, the map incorporates many other Pacific voyages. Indeed, nearly 30 tracks of explorers are marked, dating from 1492 to 1787, including the voyages of Furneaux, Surville, Tasman, Chirikof, Bering and others. "Clarity and accuracy were [Arrowsmith's] aims - and he achieved them as no English cartographer was able to before him. His maps are still essential to historians who want to delve into the history of the 18th-century exploration of the Pacific" (Bricker, Landmarks of Mapmaking , p. 98.) Arrowsmith did a remarkable job, as the title suggests, synthesizing information from the most recent explorations. This included the most up to date information from voyages to the Northwest coast of America, as well as the Arctic. Regarding the former, Arrowsmith consulted the works of Meares, Portlock, Dixon and Duncan. Early issues of the map show the northwest coast as per those discoveries. However, on the present issue, Arrowsmith has corrected the mapping of the region around Queen Charlotte Islands to conform to Vancouver's discoveries and removed the references to Duncan. The present circa 1799 issue is the first issue to incorporate those important discoveries. In the Arctic, Arrowsmith further displays his use of the most recent discoveries, incorporating information from Alexander MacKenzie's 1787-89 expedition. This information, as a 4-line note on the map attests, was derived from Mackenzie's own manuscript journal and pre-dates the 1801 publication of Mackenzie's Voyage. The present example of the map appears to be an unrecorded state. Stevens and Tree cite 7 issues of the map published between 1790 and 1808, largely dated based on Arrowsmith's address in the imprint. Arrowsmith's move to Rathbone Place has not been firmly dated, with some sources suggesting it to be as early as 1796 and others as late as 18 [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        The Inspector, or Select Literary Intelligence for the Vulgar A.D. 1798, but correct A.D. 1801, the first year of the XIXth century.

      Printed for J. White and J. Wright 1799 - library shelf mark in ink at head of title-page, some foxing and browning, pp. [i], xii, [iii-] xniii, [1], 259, 8vo, nineteenth-century purple hard-grained cloth, shelfmark in gilt on spine, spine slightly darkened, inscription on verso of title &#145;To Mr James Ivory from Mr Baron Maseres, 1799&#146;, bookplate of Dundee Free Libraries inside front cover, good A very curious production, mingling all of Hales&#146;s preoccupations in an idiosyncratic form. Hales&#146;s &#145;first published work was Sonorum doctrina rationalis et experimentalis (1778), a vindication and confirmation from recent experiments of Newton's theory of sounds. In 1782 he published De motibus planetarum dissertatio on the motions of the planets in eccentric orbits, according to the Newtonian theory. Six years later he printed at his own expense Analysis aequationum; this was later included by his friend Baron Maseres in his Scriptores logarithmici, of which 250 copies were printed. Lagrange sent Hales a complimentary letter from Berlin on the Analysis . His best-known work, A New Analysis of Chronology, took twenty years to complete, and was finally published by subscription in three volumes between 1809 and 1812 . Aside from his work on scientific subjects Hales also published, among other titles, The Inspector, or, Select Literary Intelligence for the Vulgar and Irish Pursuits of Literature (both 1799), Methodism Inspected (1803-5), and Letters on the Tenets of the Romish Hierarchy (1813)&#146; (ODNB).There are two issues recorded in ESTC, one with 252 pages, and one with 259. One would think that that with 252 pp. was simply incomplete, as the extra pages at the end are indexes: however, the preliminay leaves differ. Our copy does not correspond with either in ESTC, having more preliminary leaves than called for in the version cited. (ESTC T188993)

      Lisbon, Na Regia Officina Typografica, 1799. - Woodcut Portuguese royal arms on title page. xvi, 149 pp., (1 blank l.). 8°, contemporary speckled sheep (slight wear at head of spine), spine with gilt bands, text block edges sprinkled red. Small discoloration in lower inner margin of title-page and next few leaves. A very small wormhole in lower outer margin of first five leaves, without loss. Nevertheless crisp and clean, in very good condition. Octagonal paper tag with blue edges at foot of spine.

The author (1763-1807), a native of Rio de Janeiro who studied at Edinburgh (1786-1788) and presented his graduate thesis on gout at Leyden, practiced medicine in Rio de Janeiro, Bahia and Pernambuco before being appointed @Fisico-mor de Angola. In this famous work he notes that the tropical fevers found in Brazil and Angola are very similar, and draws on his experience with both venues. Pinto de Azeredo achieved excellent results with his "new method" of treatment, which included the use of quinine, nux vomica, arsenic, and the inside of the coconut rind. The @Ensaios has separate sections dealing with the causes and cures of dysentery and tetanus. In the introduction, Pinto de Azeredo attacks the excessive use of bleeding in Angola and in America ("com particularidade na Bahia").---- Borba de Moraes (1983) I, 62-3: "very rare"; @Período colonial pp. 39-40.

La guerre des dieux est un poème satirique où les dieux de la religion chrétienne et ceux de la mythologie gréco-romaine s'affrontent il donna lieu dès sa parution à de nombreuses plaintes, et on le plaça dans le même temps très haut dans ce type de production, par la qualité de sa langue et de son style. Les premières éditions sont recherchées car les suivantes furent toutes expurgées. A la suite de ce fameux poème de Parny, un amateur a réuni plusieurs textes de la même époque rendant compte de la situation de la religion en France les textes s'éclairent entre eux, et permettent de comprendre la conjoncture qui a pu donner naissance au poème de Parny. Le second texte de Chénier est lui également une satire sur la religion et les philosophes. La théophilantropie prit naissance en 1797, mouvement plaçant l'amour de Dieu et des hommes avant toutes choses et s'écartant de l'église. L'article qui suit est une défense de la religion naturelle, et de ses adeptes. Le dernier texte rapproche philosophie et religion naturelle, et rejette toute superstition.

The Journal Of A Mission To The Interior Of Africa, In The Year 1805 Together With Other Documents, Official And Private, Relating To The Same Mission. To Which Is Prefixed An Account Of The Life Of Mr. Park. 4to. pp. 5 p.l., cxxx, [2], 219. lacking half-title. folding engraved map. several text illus. London: Printed For John Murray By W.Bulmer And Co., 1815. First Edition. In 1795 Park was selected by the African Association to lead an exploring expedition into the interior of Africa. Starting from the Gambia and travelling eastward with only a negro servant, a boy, one horse, and two asses, he became the first modern Europen to reach the Niger River, whose course he traced some 300 miles as far as Silla. The journey was plagued with adversity; Park was robbed of all his trafficable property early on, and at one point, he was imprisoned by an Arab chief for four months, escaping only with great difficulty. He returned to the Gambia by a route further south, through the Mandingo country, mostly on foot as far as Camalia. There he fell dangerously ill with fever, being nursed back to health over a seven month period by a negro, Kaarta Taura, and finished his return journey in the company of a caravan. Park began his second and last expedition in search of the source of the Niger River on January 30th, 1805. By August, when they reached Bambakoo on the Niger, only eleven of the forty European members of the expedition were still alive. Park himself died some time in late 1805 or early 1806 at Boussa when he was attacked by natives, although no details were known until 1812. Park&#146;s last communications date from November when he was about to descend the river from Sansandingo in a flat-bottomed vessel fashioned, mainly with his own hands, out of two canoes. His journal, which was safely conveyed to the Gambia together with his last communications by his guide Isaaco, was published by the African Institute to aid his widow and family. Also included here is a biography of Park by E.Wishaw, as well as Isaaco&#146;s journal and an account of the fate of the expedition related by another guide, Adami Fatouma. "Until the publication of Park&#146;s [first] book in 1799 hardly anything was known of the interior of Africa, apart from the north-east region and the coastal areas Park&#146;s Travels had an immediate success and was translated into most European languages. It has become a classic of travel literature, and its scientific observations on the botany and meteorology of the region, and on the social and domestic life of the negroes, have remained of lasting value. Park&#146;s career was short, but he made the first great practical advance in the opening-up of Central Africa." (Printing and the Mind of Man) Cox I pp. 394-95. Hosken p. 154. Howgego P21.

Story notes that "his account of Canada (letters 21-25) is a clear and sustained description of an area and a way of life that pleased him more than had the United States." The plates are engraved after original sketches by the author. Clark II 132. Gagnon I 3701. Howes W-235. Lande 890. JCB II 4062. Sabin 192541. TPL 708. Vlach 754. Story p. 103.

      - Londres, 1799, 9x14, 332 págs. XVI-332 págs. Nombre de época en portada. Encuadernado de época en pasta española con tejuelo y ruedas doradas en lomera, cortes tintados. Buen estado. (Aunque reza segunda edición en la portada muchos estudiosos dudan de la existencia de una primera pues no hay rastro de ninguna edición anterior. La traducción se atribuye al político, escritor y traductor, José Marchena Ruiz de Cueto ( Utrera 1768-Madrid 1821), más conocido con el sobrenombre de Abate Marchena. Esta edición del Contrato Social contiene un texto sumamente revolucionario de 16 páginas del Abate Marchena que sirve de introducción con el título de: "Advertencia del Traductor", Por último hay investigaciones que apuntan a que el libro fue impreso en Francia y no en Londres como reza en la portada. Se sabe que se imprimieron 500 copias de la obra de las que buena parte se mandaron a América y muchas se debieron de desturir por el contenido incendiario de la obra y sobre todo del prólogo).

Ampio indice delle materie su due colonne alle pp. 362-431 dello stesso terzo volume. Esemplare assai bello. Prima edizione francese (contemporaneamente a questa tiratura ne apparve anche una in formato più grande), tradotta dall'inglese da J.B. L.J. Billecocq con l'aiuto di studiosi come Fleurieu, Gosselin, Barbié du Bocage. L'opera consiste in una rielaborazione e in un vastissimo commento, compiuti da William Vincent (Londra, 1739-1815), del diario, steso da Nearco di Anfipoli, della spedizione di Alessandro in Asia, tramandatoci nell'"Indica" di Arriano. Nearco, dopo aver seguito Alessandro, di cui era intimo amico, sino all'India, tra il 325 e il 324 esplorò, primo tra gli occidentali, la costa dell'Indo sino all'Eufrate, al comando dell'armata incaricata di raggiungere il Golfo Persico. L'opera è un documento di eccezionale interesse storico, geografico, etniografico, e il libro del Vincent è il primo serio studio moderno condotto sul resoconto dell'ammiraglio macedone, di cui ristabilisce e rivendica la verità di narrazione.Il Vincent fu noto erudito e storico inglese, professore a Westminster e insigne studioso di storia e geografia antica.

Roux fils Marseilles.; Mixed media including watercolor, gouache, and pen & ink on paper; 14 3/4&#148; x 19&#148; framed The Roux family of marine painters dominated the field of naval art in 19th-century Europe. Centered in the port city of Marseilles, the founding member of this painting dynasty was Joseph Roux (1725-1793), who trained his son, Joseph-Ange-Antoine (1765-1835), to follow in his footsteps. The younger Roux proved a highly gifted student, and his work was the inspiration for a generation of French and Italian ship portraitists, though his own work outstripped theirs in scope and quality. The most able disciples of Joseph-Ange-Antoine proved to be his own sons, Mathieu Antoine (1799-1872), Frederic (1805-1870), and Francois Geffroi (1811-1882), who continued painting into the late 19th century. The period of the Roux family&#146;s activity, roughly 1780 to 1880, coincided with the time when ship portraiture was coming into its own as a genre. Throughout the 18th century there had been British and continental artists who had depicted ships at sea and in harbor, yet their subjects nearly always reflected the heroic actions of notable events, such as sea battles. During this period, however, a market was developing among mariners for images of their own ships, divorced from any narrative context, and this market spurred the willingness of painters to take on the task. The Roux were instrumental in this process, as their works were prime factors both in solidifying the characteristics of the genre, and in creating an even greater demand through their sheer quality.

        Passiflora caerulea Common Passion flower

      Miss Lawrance, London 1799 - A fine image from one of the rarest of all botanical works. Only five complete copies of Miss Lawrence's A Collection of Passion Flowers (London: 1799-1802) are known. The work was published, without text, in six parts of 3 plates each. Mary Lawrance (later Mrs. Kearse), flower painter, exhibited at the Royal Academy from 1795 to 1830. She lived during a period when flower painting was considered one of the necessary social accomplishments for ladies and she was able to charge up to half-a-guinea a lesson. She 'is said to have been the possessor of much personal charm and was exceedingly popular in London. [she] obtained her botanical specimens for her drawings from various nursery gardens, including the famous Vineyard nursery at Hammersmith. It was thought to be an honour for the owner as well as the flower when Miss Lawrance painted its portrait' (Henrey II, pp.580-581). Cf. Great Flower Books (1990) p.111; cf. Henrey 947; cf. Hunt 760; cf. Nissen BBI 1150. Etching, coloured by hand, by Mary Lawrance.

        Disobedience Detected

      Published by William Barnard, London 1799 - A lovely impression of Barnard's famous genre print 'Disobedience Detected' after a moralizing painting by James Ward. James Ward was one of the most noted artists of his day, his individual style and superior skill distinguished him from his contemporaries, and his outstanding work influenced the development of British art. Considered to be one of the most important animal painters of his generation, Ward also produced portraits, landscapes, genre and history paintings. He began his career as an engraver, studying under his brother William, who later went on to engrave many of his paintings. The "disobedience" has to do with the bird's nest, baby birds within, that the little boy is red is holding. The boy in red, the oldest girl who stands blushing in the middle and the stern, commanding grandmother, tapping the Bible with her forefinger are most interesting characters in this drama, and interestingly, the grandmother's wrath doesn't seem to effect the boy in red very much, while the eldest daughter seems devastated. C.R. Grundy James Ward p.70, no.31. Colour printed mezzotint with additional hand-colouring.

        View of the Russian Empire during the Reign of Catherine the Second,

      London: Printed for T. N. Longman and O. Rees, and J. Debrett,, 1799. and to the Close of the Present Century. 3 volumes, octavo (210 x 128 mm). Contemporary tree calf, rebacked with the original spines laid down, spines gilt in compartments, modern speckled calf labels, gilt-stamped knot designs and decorative rolls to compartments, edges sprinkled blue. Engraved folding map. This set from the Stratton Street library of Harriot Beauclerk (1777-1837), the British actress, banker, and later duchess of St Albans, with her bookplate to front pastedown and contemporary ownership inscription to the title page. Extremities rubbed, a few minor scuff marks to boards, spines dried and somewhat cracked, margins of prelims and endmatter heavily browned, mild offsetting from bookplates, occasional minor spotting to margins of text block. Volume I: short splits along front joint, upper corners of b5 and b6 chipped, distinct offsetting from the lightly foxed folding map, some larger spots along folds, small nick to stub. Otherwise a very good set. First edition of this compilatory overview of Russian history. Tooke (c. 1744-1820), a British author and translator, was ordained in February 1771 and a month later he accepted the position as chaplain of the English Factory church in Kronstadt, the main port of St. Petersburg. Three years later, Tooke became chaplain of the English Factory church in St. Petersburg "which had the largest and wealthiest British community" of the English churches in Russia; he remained there until 1792. During this period, Tooke "became friendly with the clergy of several different denominations and with many leading writers and academics, stimulating his ambition to make their works known in Britain" (ODNB). The present work was published to positive reviews and would appear in several English editions, with the second edition forming the basis for a French edition in 1801. A View of the Russian Empire was later followed by Tooke&#39;s 1800 work History of Russia from the Foundation of the Monarchy by Rurik to the Accession of Catharine the Great.
