        The Botanic Garden. A Poem. In Two Parts. Part I Containing The Economy Of Vegetation. Part II The Loves Of The Plants. With Philosophical Notes. (2 volumes)

      London: Printed for J. Johnson, 1799.. Format: 13,5 x 22 cm, The fourth edition. Sprache: Englisch. XVIII, 492 Seiten mit 11 Kupfertafeln inkl. Frontispiz, eine davon mehrfach gefaltet (11 Plates, one of them folded) + VII, 284 Seiten mit 11 Kupfertafeln inkl Frontispiz, eine davon gefaltet mit XXIX Darstellungen (11 Plates, one of them folded, containing XXIX small pictures) = zusammen 22 Kupfertafeln = komplett. Fest gebunden in Halbleder der Zeit mit marmorierten Deckelbezügen und Lederrücken und -ecken; Rücken auf 7 goldlinierten Scheinbünden, mit goldgepr. Titel- und Nummernfach. Vorsätze sehr schön marmoriert (im gleichen Muster wie die Deckel; letztere allerdings berieben und leimschattig); Rückenleder gut. Sehr hübsche Ausgabe, vollständig mit sämtlichen Tafeln; so sehr selten. / Two volumes, complete, with all plates.. * One of the first popular science books, The Botanic Garden was intended to pique readers' interest in science at the same time as educating them. By embracing Linnaeus' sexualized language, which anthropomorphized plants, the British poet and naturalist E. Darwin (Grandfather of Charles Darwin) made botany interesting and relevant to his readers. He emphasized the connections between humanity and plants, arguing that they are all part of the same natural world and that sexual reproduction is at the heart of evolution . The Botanic Garden, despite its high cost, was an early bestseller. Nevertheless, the poem's radical political elements, such as its support of the French revolution and its criticism of slavery, angered conservative British readers.

        Nihon sankai meisan zue [trans.: Illustrations of Famous Products of the Mountains and Sea]

      76 woodcuts (mostly double-page) by Shitomi Kangetsu. 16; 42; 29; 36; 31 folded leaves. 5 vols. 8vo, orig. wrappers (each delicately embossed, upper cover of final vol. with a little worming), orig. block-printed title label on each upper cover, new stitching. Osaka: 1799. First edition of this finely illustrated work describing the principal arts and industries of Japan. The book was very probably written by Kokyo Kimura (1736-1802), who has signed the preface. Better known under the name Kenkado, he was a sake merchant, artist, calligrapher, bibliophile, and student of the sciences. He was one of the most important intellectuals of Osaka of the time. The numerous woodcuts are important, not only for their historically accurate detail, but also for their artistic quality. The artist was Shitomi Kangetsu (1747-99), a student of Tsukioka Settei (1710-86). Kangetsu was an ukiyo-e painter who studied the ancient methods of both Chinese and Japanese painting, and specialized in landscapes, portraits, and shunga paintings. The entire first volume is devoted to the manufacturing of sake, an industry about which the author obviously knew well. The various steps in producing sake are fully illustrated. Vol. II is concerned with stone quarrying, the manufacture of stone utensils and other products made out of stone, honey-making, cooking and preparing foods by pickling for the winter, and the hunting of birds and animals. Vols. III and IV describe the fishing industry, from catching to processing the fish. The fifth volume describes the manufacture of lime, the production of the famous Imari pottery, textile manufacturing, harvesting seaweed, etc. The blue covers have been lightly embossed with a view of the mountains and the sea, to considerable effect. WorldCat attributes the authorship to the artist Kangetsu. Fine set. With some relatively minor and mostly marginal worming in each volume. .

Small marginal paper flaw to upper edge (3/16 x 5/8 inch) of plate Sword Arm Protect. A clean, bright, and fine copy of this rare volume scarcely found in such condition."With foreign invasion threatening our shores, martial ardour was the keynote of the year 1799, and subscribers were readily found for the Hungarian and Highland Broadsword Exercise.The twenty-four plates in coloured aquatint show military exercises and movements of cavalry, but the single figures in the foreground, illustrating sword exercises, are relieved and animated by the introduction in the background of various skirmishes, assaults, and battle-scenes, so that the plates lose all sense of formality. In the general liveliness of the picture you forget that the two central figures illustrate 'cut two, and horse's off side protect, new guard,' and other formulae of broadsword exercise, just as for the nonce in a stage duel you forget that cut, thrust and parry are planned, rehearsed, and mechanical" (Hardie)."Valuable as a record of the military life and costume of the time" (Prideaux).Grolier/Rowlandson 10.

      Sceptre, 2010. 1st. Hardcover. Fine/Fine. Signed by Author. SIGNED and Numbered Limited Edition (500 copies) - still in pubisher's shrinkwrap. A pristine and collectible copy. Signed UK first edition, first print, hardcover, unread condition. Very hard to find limited edition was meant to be 1,000 copies but cut to 500. Synopsis: Imagine a nation banishing the outside world for two centuries, crushing all vestiges of Christianity, forbidding its subjects to leave its shores on pain of death, and harbouring a deep mistrust of European ideas. The narrow window onto this nation-fortress is a walled, artificial island attached to the mainland port and manned by a handful of traders. Locked as the land-gate may be, however, it cannot prevent the meeting of minds Ð or hearts. The nation was Japan, the port was Nagasaki and the island was Dejima, to where David Mitchell's panoramic novel transports us in the year 1799. For one young Dutch clerk, Jacob de Zoet, a strage adventure of duplicity, love, guilt, faith and murder is about to begin Ð and all the while, unbeknownst to the men confined on Dejima, the axis of global power is turning.

        Saggi politici de' principi, progressi e decadenza delle società.

      sans nom 1799 - PAGANO, Francesco Maria. Saggi politici de' principi, progressi e decadenza delle società.Naples, s. n., 1792 (mais 1799). 3 vol. in 8 de 6 ff n. ch.-XLIV-l50pp., 6 ff. n. ch.-VIII-199pp., 8 ff. n. ch.-248pp., reliure en plein parchemin rigide de l'époque, dos lisses, traces de légères salissures et petites taches sur les plats, rousseurs éparses, mouillures dans les marges touchant parfois le texte, mais sans aucune gravité, bon exemplaire. Francesco Maria Pagano, naquit en 1748 à Brienza, en Basilicate aux confins de la fontière avec la Campanie. Il fut professeur de droit criminel à l’université royale de Naples, il fut exécuté sur la place du marché de Naples en 1799 suite à l'échec de la révolution dans la ville et à la tentative d'instaurer une république sur le modèle révolutionnaire français. Ces écrits sont l'oeuvre la plus importante de l'auteur, très influencés par la philosophie de Giambattista Vico, dans leurs analyses historiques et sur le développement des civilisations, mais bien plus virulent que le réputé philosophe napolitain, tendant à dénoncer les injustices et les abus des pouvoirs despotiques, comme cela fut le cas durant des siècles dans le sud de l'Italie en général et plus particulièrement à Naples. L'auteur s'attira les foudres du pouvoir clérical et politique de sa ville. Pagano avait donc une conception démocratique qui le poussait à polémiquer et a attaquer tous les privileges en faveur des plus riches et des plus puissants, mais ses conceptions philosophiques et politiques tendaient substantiellement à établir une égalité civile, non pas politique. Ainsi en tenant compte de façon très lucide et très rigoureuse des forces en présence, ce dernier s'était très clairement rapproché des philosophes des lumières français et des acteurs de la révolution francaise. Le dernier essai, le IV est de ce point de vue très important: les chapitres portent sur la liberté civile, sur le pouvoir judiciaire, sur la propriété, sur les lois agraires, sur la monnaie et sur les finances, sur le luxe, sur le despotisme. Premiere édition publié quelque mois apres l'exécution de l'auteur, rare et recherché. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        MINUTES, EXPERIMENTS, OBSERVATIONS, AND GENERAL REMARKS ON AGRICULTURE, IN THE SOUTHERN COUNTIES . . . TO WHICH IS PREFIXED A SKETCH OF THE VALE OF LONDON, AND AN OUTLINE OF ITS RURAL ECONOMY

      G. Nichol London: G. Nichol, 1799. Second Edition of the first work; FIRST EDITION of the second work . Hardcover. In Remarkable Condition, and in Bindings with Particularly Handsome Decoration. 216 x 137 mm (8 1/2 x 5 3/8").Two volumes. Second Edition of the first work; FIRST EDITION of the second work. Very attractive contemporary diced russia, covers with gilt chain border, flat spines each featuring six wide bands and a titling label that have been darkened and marbled (the bands decorated with gilt fleurs-de-lys and flanked by plain rules and decorative rolls), the other panels (in smooth, lighter calf) with a large, intricate gilt fleuron, marbled endpapers and edges. With five double-page engraved plates, two with plans of farms, three with farming implements, and one folding table. Front pastedowns with bookplate of George de Ligne Gregory (see below). Mild offsetting to plates, isolated marginal spots, but AN EXCEPTIONALLY FINE SET, extremely clean, fresh, and smooth internally, and in virtually unworn bindings. Offered here in bindings of unusual design (and perhaps with decoration more stylish than their subject matter might call for), this is a guide to farming in Southern England, based on the practical experience of its author, and written mostly in the form of a journal. Marshall (1745-1818) was one of the most important agricultural writers of his day, but was thought to be a lesser figure than Arthur Young. Modern commentators, however, have judged Marshall more favorably, in part because Young merely toured farming districts and reported on what he saw, while Marshall actually took up residence and did the work. The present book is based on notes ("minutes") that he made while managing a farm in Surrey from 1774 to 1778. According to Fussell, it was originally published in the latter year, after winning the approval of Samuel Johnson. Marshall heavily revised the work in 1798 and reissued it as part of his rural economy series on the agricultural regions of England and Scotland; our 1799 edition is augmented by the first appearance of a second work, which deals with the countryside surrounding London. Marshall takes us through the farming year, observing when he planted and reaped, what tools and animals he used (his preference for oxen over horses was controversial), and what weather conditions prevailed. Useful for farmers in its time, it is interesting to the modern reader for its first-person account of daily farm life in 18th century England. Former owner George de Ligne Gregory (1740-1822) was heir to the Harlaxton Estate and was remarkable for letting its 15th century manor house decline while extensively updating and improving the housing of his tenants. He built a new, more modest manor near Hungerton, where perhaps our volumes once resided, in very much the same condition as we find them today.

        Remarks on a Tour to North and South Wales in the Year 1797

      London: W Wigstead, 1799 In a full brown contemporary leather with corners and edges a little bumped and worn, rear cover has a small mark. Spine has been very carefully relaid some time ago, lots of decorative gilt tooling, a little faded, title in gilt to red leather label, edges a little bumped and worn. Internally, small bookseller label to fep, ink name to ffep, half title present, engraved titlepage, with the rare printed titlepage, (vi), [3], 69 pp, [3], 22 B&W plates + the engraved tp = 23 pl, 2 pp of adverts, minimal foxing, title page dated 1799, extra title page dated 1800, printed by James Bateson, Denmark Street, Soho, September 1799! A lovely example of the difficult to find Black and White plate version! (ESTC T11206. COPAC, WorldCat) Wigstead was an English Magistrate amateur painter & caricaturist. He was a close personal friend of Thomas Rowlandson, whom he accompanied on sketching trips to the Isle of Wight (1784), Brighton (1789) and Wales (1787) which resulted in subsequent publications for which Rowlandson provided the illustrations. Wigstead exhibited at the RA exhibition of 1785. His style appears to be close to Rowlandson, who create prints of many of his works, often signing them as Wigstead. See Wiki)

Auction records of the past three decades reveal Sir Marcus' predeliction for travel books and morocco bindings, with copies of Dallaway, Edwards and Sonnini with the same provenance all having passed through the London salerooms.
