      Paris: Chez Carteret et Brosson and Dogour Duran, 1799. 2 volumes. 457 pages with frontispiece engraved portrait by Bovinet Mico Chlucco Grana, King of the Seminoles and one folding plate; 436 pages without title with large folding map by J.B. Poirson engraved by Alexandre Blondeau and folding plate. Octavo (8 1/4" x 5 1/4") bound in half leather with six spine compartments with red and black labels in gilt over original marbled boards. Translated by Pierre Vincent Benoist. (Sabin 3871; Palau 251346; Howes B223; Field 94) First French edition.William Bartram was an American naturalist. The son of the naturalist John Bartram. As a boy, he accompanied his father on many of his travels to the Catskill Mountains, the New Jersey Pine Barrens, New England, and Florida. In 1773, he embarked upon a four-year journey through eight southern colonies. Bartram made many drawings and took notes on the native flora and fauna, and the native American Indians. In 1774, he explored the St. Johns River, where he had memorable encounters with aggressive alligators, and also visited a principal Seminole village at Cuscowilla, where his arrival was celebrated with a great feast. He met Ahaya the Cowkeeper, chief of the Alachua band of the Seminole tribe. When Bartram explained to the Cowkeeper that he was interested in studying the local plants and animals, the chief was amused and began calling him Puc Puggy (the flower hunter).[2] Bartram continued his explorations of the Alachua Savannah, or what is today Paynes Prairie. William Bartram wrote of his experiences exploring the Southeast in his book Travels through North & South Carolina, East & West Florida, the Cherokee Country, the Extensive Territories of the Muscogulges, or Creek Confederacy, and the Country of the Chactaws, Containing an Account of the Soil and Natural Productions of Those Regions, Together with Observations on the Manners of the Indians, published in 1791 and which is today simply known as Bartram's Travels. It was considered at the time one of the foremost books on American natural history. Many of Bartram's accounts of historical sites were the earliest records, including the Georgia mound site of Ocmulgee. In addition to its contributions to scientific knowledge, Travels is noted for its original descriptions of the American countryside. Bartram's writing influenced many of the Romantic writers of the day. William Wordsworth, Samuel Taylor Coleridge, and François René de Chateaubriand are known to have read the book, and its influence can be seen in many of their works. Ephraim George Squier and Edwin Hamilton Davis, in their book, Ancient Monuments of the Mississippi Valley, name Bartram as "the first naturalist who penetrated the dense tropical forests of Florida."Condition:Some rubbing to original boards, page 143 of volume one has small burn mark affecting text, half title bound upside down in back, old water stain to plate of volume two. Fold-out map has repair to first fold, internally pages are clean and free of toning and foxing else a very good copy.

        La Perouse, A Drama, in Two Acts. From the German of Augustus von Kotzebue; by Benjamin Thomson... as performed at the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane.

      London: Vernor and Hood, 1799. Octavo, 40 pp., recent wrappers, solander case. A light-hearted drama based on the disappearance and conjectured fate of La Pérouse in the Pacific.This is the London-published translation of the German play which had appeared in Leipzig in 1797, an early example of what would become a number of fanciful works speculating on the fate of the lost French Pacific explorer, a tradition which continued even after Dillon discovered the site of his fatal shipwreck in the late 1820s.Augustus von Kotzebue was the author of some two hundred theatrical works. Director of the Vienna Court Theatre, he was also successful abroad, becoming the key figure in the short but brilliant 'Glanzperiode' (1798-1802), during which German drama dominated the London stage. He was also a successful librettist, and Beethoven, Schubert and Weber each set his librettos to music. After a period living in Russia, Kotzebue returned to Germany as an agent of Czar Alexander I. He was detested for his reactionary propaganda and was subsequently assassinated in Mannheim by a student. Of his twelve sons, the best-remembered is Otto von Kotzebue, the Russian navigator and scientist who completed three circumnavigations, charted much of the Alaskan coast, and discovered and named Kotzebue Sound (off western Alaska) as well as several islands in the Society and Marshall groups in the Pacific.Benjamin Thomson, translator here, was noted by Thomas Dibdin in his Reminiscences as a translator of German plays for the London theatre scene. Ferguson notes another English translation of 1799 by Anne Plumptre. The play itself was clearly a frolic, summarised by a contemporary reviewer: 'To create distress out of nothing, La Pérouse is supposed to be found on an uninhabited island, after residing there for eight years with a lovely female, who, from his preserver, had become his wife. Here he is found by his real wife, Adelaide, and after much struggle which he shall retain, and which relinquish, and after nearly killing both the ladies with grief, it is agreed that the three should live together as sisters and brother. It is a little peculiar that they are dissuaded from returning to France on account of the Revolution; this passage was an agreeable surprise to us.'. Some foxing or staining, old marginal paper repairs to the title-page and first 2 ll. of text.

         Des signes et de l'art de penser considérés dans leurs rapports mutuels

      Paris, chez Goujon fils, Fuchs, Henrichs, an VIII (1799-1800), 4 vol in 8°, demi-veau moucheté époque à petits coins vélin, dos lisse orné, p. de t. rouge et bleue, fleurons et filets dorés, une très légère mouillure en marge d'un volume et quelques corrections manuscrites de l'époque sinon bel exemplaire. Edition originale peu commune de ce texte majeur. C'est en 1800 que Gérando se lia avec l'entourage de Mme de Staël, et qu'il mit au point son oeuvre "Des signes et de l'art de penser considérés dans leurs rapports mutuels", qui devait constituer comme la charte de l'Idéologie. Le texte fut présenté au concours de l'Institut national de France, en concurrence avec celui de Louis-Claude de Saint Martin, ou "Essai sur les signes et sur les idées", mais c'est Gérando qui obtient le prix. Saint-Martin critiquera les positions de son adversaire dans "Observation sur les signes et les idées et réfutation des principes de M. de Gérando". Après 1800, les philosophes de l'Idéologie, sur la base de rapports présentés par Gérando et Destutt de Tracy, ont pris formellement position contre la philosophie kantienne. Dans ses conclusions Gérando considère ici que le secours des signes naturels est le moyen ordinaire auquel nous devons l'éveil de nos idées sensibles, les signes artificiels, ou signes du langage, sont eux nécessaires pour obtenir des idées abstraites et complexes, et les signes indicateurs nous aident dans la perception des sensations. ¶ Staum les concours de l'Institut en sciences morales et politiques (1982) - Buisson Dict. de pédagogie - W. Busse & J. Trabant les idéologues (1986) p.22-25.

        Poems.

      Boston: Manning & Loring, 1799. Duodecimo, in modern paper boards. Very rare: the first American edition of this collection of Southey's verse, which includes his "Botany Bay Eclogues" (pp. 57-73).Borrowing from Southey's early radicalism, and infused with the ideas that would lead him to join Coleridge in advocating the utopian ideals of Pantisocracy (not what you think), one of the often ignored aspects of the Botany Bay Eclogues is that they correctly privilege the new Australian society over life in England: they are 'made up of the reminiscences of ordinary people who have been transported to Australia as felons. Some of them remember England with nostalgia, but all have gone through experiences that make Botany Bay seem like a welcome haven.' (Routledge History of English Poetry, p. 10)As an eighteenth-century American printing of Australian interest, this edition is in the company of an extremely small number of other titles: principally the 1794 editions of the Scottish Martyrs Muir and Margarot, and the 1796 Philadelphia edition of Barrington.All editions of this important collection, first published in London in 1797, are rare, none more so than this Boston edition. Ferguson knew only the British Library copy, while the Addenda volume could add no Australian locations. It is now known to be in the American Imprint collection of the National Library of Australia.

        A Missionary Voyage to the Southern Pacific Ocean, performed in the Years 1796, 1797, 1798, in the Ship Duff...

      London: Printed by S. Gosnell for T. Chapman, 1799. Quarto, with six plates and seven maps (most folding), list of subscribers, errata leaf, library markings but a fine tall copy in modern red half calf by Sangorski. First edition, an attractive copy of the Chapman edition of the Duff voyage. This is the full official account of the first missionary voyage to the South Pacific. The Duff set out for Tahiti in 1796, but visited many island groups, including particularly Tonga and the Marquesas. A new group of islands, the "Duff Group", was discovered among the Santa Cruz Islands. The maps here include a large chart of the Fiji Islands as well as charts of Tongataboo, the Gambier Islands, the Marquesas, Tahiti and the Duff Group; the plates include an engraved view of Rio de Janeiro. Wilson is identified as the author of the main body of the work in the Advertisement, which explains that he put it together from the captain's papers as well as his own, and from the missionaries' reports. The Hill catalogue notes that 'the long "preliminary discourse" was anonymously written by Samuel Greatheed, using the then-unpublished narrative of James Morrison, one of the pardoned Bounty mutineers. Morrison's manuscript was also the source for the extensive appendix on Tahiti. Indeed, William Wilson and James Morrison may be called co-authors of this book... '.According to the map expert Dorothy F. Prescott, 'the Wilson book contained a map that actually used the words "Greater Australia" - taking in Captain Cook's map of the south and east coasts of Van Diemens Land... this map would have influenced Matthew Flinders... '. Flinders is traditionally said to have been the first to use the term "Australia" in a voyage context: the Duff account appeared about fifteen years earlier.There is much of Australian interest in the account of the voyage including a mention of escaped Botany Bay convicts, and the flight of several missionaries from Tonga, where three were killed, to Sydney. Some of the missionaries made their homes in Sydney and founded families later to become important in Australian history. Two of the maps with wear at folds, contemporary manuscript corrections throughout, some offsetting, library stamp of "Devon & Exeter Institution" on title-page verso and final page of text.

        Relation abrégée du Voyage de La Pérouse, pendant les années 1785, 1786, 1787 et 1788...

      Leipzig: 1799. Octavo, frontispiece, five plates, and a large folding map; contemporary quarter calf, some wear, front joint starting but otherwise a very good copy, bookplate. Abridged account of the La Pérouse voyage, published two years after the official edition. The preface records all previous Pacific voyagers of any note, and includes a full list of persons who embarked with La Pérouse including officers, scientists, artists, sailors, engineers, artillerymen, carpenters, domestic servants and supercargo (dated July 1785).Although printed in a smaller format than the lavish (and handsomely priced) official edition, this book was aimed at voyage enthusiasts, advertising itself on the title-page as a supplement to La Harpe's series of voyage accounts. Although the title page attributes the abridgement to Jean-Francois de La Harpe, McLaren states it is actually the work of Charles Françoise de Villers. Rolf du Reitz confidently speculates 'the Leipzig imprint is probably fictitious.'Only the National Library copy is recorded by Ferguson, while McLaren notes another at the State Library of Victoria.

        A Voyage Round the World, performed in the Years 1785, 1786, 1787 and 1788, by the Boussole and Astrolabe, under the command of J.F.G. de la Perouse.

      London: G.G. and J. Robinson, 1798-1799. Total of three volumes, comprising two quarto text volumes with an engraved portrait frontispiece, and a folio atlas with portrait, engraved title and 69 maps and plates; from the Kings Inn library at Dublin (with a few old stamps and a cursive title-page notation); recent black half morocco with gilt lettering and ornament. The best English edition of La Pérouse, the first to contain a full translation of the French original, and a handsome set with two substantial volumes of text and a folio atlas. Abridged translations had appeared in 1798, but this was the first publication of a complete translation of the French original, and the first English publication of the complete set of images of the expedition. Most of the engraved plates are by Heath, engraver of some of the plates for Cook's third voyage. The translator modestly announces: 'The book now laid before the world is one of the most magnificent in its conception, and recent in its execution'.This edition is rare on the market.The disappearance of the entire La Pérouse expedition overshadows what was in reality a great Pacific voyage. While primarily a voyage of exploration and discovery, the possibilities of the fur trade and of French expansion into the Pacific and Asia were evidently investigated in depth.The most significant results of the voyage are the charts of the imperfectly known Asiatic side of the Pacific. En route to Kamschatka, La Pérouse was the first to safely navigate and chart the Japan Sea and the strait between the island of Sakahlin and the northernmost island of Japan, which bears his name. At Kamschatka he received instructions to proceed to Australia to assess the extent of British plans in New South Wales. Travelling via Samoa where he discovered Savaii, Manono and Apolima islands in December 1787, and through the Tongan group, he arrived at Botany Bay in January 1788, just hours after Governor Phillip had arrived with the First Fleet.La Pérouse's habit of forwarding records whenever opportunity offered ensured their survival. The first portion was forwarded by sea from Macao; the second (Macao to Kamschatka) went overland with De Lesseps, and the final despatches from Botany Bay. Intermittent foxing affects the atlas, yet a very good set.

        An Act for Continuing, Until the Twenty-Fifth Day Of March One Thousand Eight Hundred And Two, Several Laws Relating to the Transportation of Felons and Other Offenders...

      London: George Eyre & Andrew Strahan, 1799. Printed bifolium, pp. [461]-462, armorial letterhead, last 2pp. blank. Uncommon: a significant eighteenth-century Act of Parliament amending and continuing the practice of transportation.It was in 1784 that the English government proclaimed the legal reinstitution of transportation, with "An Act for the effectual Transportation of Felons and Other Offenders" (Ferguson, 3) and its companion Act for Scotland (Ferguson, 4bb). These two 1784 Acts laid out all of the basic conditions of transportation, but interestingly had time limits imposed, which meant that they could not last indefinitely, and that continuations were required periodically. The present 1799 Act is just such a continuation, continuing the practice for the length of the current session of Parliament, due to be completed in March 1802. Very good.

        THE POLITE TRAVELLER, or A Collection of Travels made in different parts of the world.

      144 pages. Engraved frontispiece. Original quarter green calf over marbled boards with paper label to spine. 12mo. Lacks endpaper (if called for); binding rather worn; wax marks to recto of frontispiece, one having created a small hole in the blank margin; else a good plus copy. The Frontispiece states Vol.II in the margin, and the text block Vol. IV. We suspect, that that this edition, which is not in Blakey, has used the frontispiece from Volume II of The Polite Traveller issued by John Fielding in 1783 in eight volumes [that volume covering Italy, Spain, Portugal and Africa]; volume IV, being a modern view of the thirteen united states of America. This issue by William Lane would seem to be an amalgam of those two volumes. Rare. ESTC lists no copies in the U.K., and two copies only in the United States: Cornell and The Huntington Library,.

FineFifth (and most desirable) Edition of this seminal work on electricity and its applications (first published 1784), with corrections and additions by William Jones. Adams came from a family of makers of scientific instruments and globes, and was Mathematical Instrument-Maker to His Majesty George III. In the 1780s, he began publishing a series of illustrated texts dealing with the physical sciences. Following close on the heels of Essay on Electricity were Essays on the Microscope (1787), Astronomical and Geographical Essays (1789), Geometrical and Graphical Essays (1791), and Lectures on Natural and Experimental Philosophy (5 vols., 1794). The six engraved plates, including a new frontispiece, contain 105 figures, mostly illustrating various experimental instruments constructed by Adams, often at the request of the king in line with his interest in the practical applications of science.

        A Voyage Round the World, performed in the Years 1785, 1786, 1787 and 1788, by the Boussole and Astrolabe, under the command of J.F.G. de la Pérouse.

      London: G. & J. Robinson, 1799. Two quarto text volumes, with frontispiece portrait and half-titles, and the folio atlas with engraved title and 69 maps and plates (the large folding map of the voyage coloured in outline); the atlas volume large with edges uncut; an appealing set with the text volumes in contemporary mottled calf, original double labels, atlas in matching quarter calf over old boards. The official account of the great and tragic expedition of La Pérouse: the best English edition, the first to contain a full translation of the French original. Abridged translations had appeared in 1798, but this was the first complete translation, and the first English publication of the complete set of images of the expedition. Most of the engraved plates are by Heath, engraver of some of the plates for Cook's third voyage. The translator modestly announces: 'The book now laid before the world is one of the most magnificent in its conception, and recent in its execution'.The official account of the La Pérouse voyage is generally considered one of the finest narratives of maritime exploration ever written. La Pérouse left Brest with two vessels in 1785 with one of their aims being to to explore the northwest coast of America. On the way they stopped in Chile and Hawaii, where they were the first Europeans to land on Maui. During 1786 La Pérouse followed the coast from their landfall near Mount St Elias in Alaska to southern California, exploring and mapping the coast and making particularly significant visits to Lituya Bay where they transacted with the Tlingit tribe (as dramatised two centuries later by Carl Sagan in Cosmos), the outer islands of British Columbia, San Francisco and Monterey. The first non-Spanish visitor to California since Francis Drake, the French explorer took close note of Spanish activity in the pueblos and missions.The expedition sailed on, visiting Macau, Manila, Korea, the Pacific coast of Russia, Japan, and Samoa and exploring the central Pacific, but their main instructions were to make for Australian waters to check on English activity in the region. Australia was a prize, and the French were as keen as the English to claim it. On 24 January 1788 they reached Botany Bay to find the ships of the First Fleet at anchor in the harbour and to the great surprise of the English settlers. The French ships spent over six weeks in Botany Bay, and thus witnessed the English move to Port Jackson and the beginnings of the fledgling settlement there. The settlers were the last Europeans to see the French expedition before it vanished in the Pacific. France lost its most important explorer of the eighteenth century, and the nation mourned this loss and the mystery surrounding it for decades.La Pérouse's habit of forwarding records whenever he had a chance ensured their survival. The first portion was forwarded by sea from Macao; the second (Macao to Kamchatka) went overland with De Lesseps, and the final despatches from Botany Bay. When it became clear that something had happened to the expedition, a decision was made to publish the journals he had transmitted home.This set bears the armorial bookplates of Jeremiah d'Olier of county Wicklow. D'Olier, 1745-1817, was a Huguenot goldsmith and one of the founding governors of the Bank of Ireland. He also served as Sheriff of Dublin in 1788 and d'Olier Street in modern Dublin commemorates him. In very good condition, some usual moderate foxing and offsetting, all volumes neatly rebacked.

        MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES, ACCOMPANYING A REPORT OF THE SECRETARY OF STATE, CONTAINING OBSERVATIONS ON SOME OF THE DOCUMENTS, COMMUNICATED BY THE PRESIDENT...

      Philadelphia, 1799. 45pp. Stitched signatures. Some staining on final leaves. Very good. President John Adams sought to negotiate with the French Government, after a falling-out with France over Jay's Treaty and the coup which installed the Directory, in the fall of 1797. Charles Cotesworth Pinckney, John Marshall, and Elbridge Gerry were sent to Paris to negotiate on behalf of the United States. However, when the American envoys met with the French foreign minister, Talleyrand, and other unnamed persons (Mr. X, Y, and Z) they were asked to provide bribes and pay an indemnity to the French government. Pinckney and Marshall returned to the United States, and first told the story in MESSAGE OF THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES TO BOTH HOUSES OF CONGRESS (Philadelphia, 1798, Evans 34812), issued on April 3, and followed by similar revelations on May 4 (Philadelphia, 1798, Evans 34819. These problems were also paraded in the British press, in THE WHOLE OFFICIAL CORRESPONDENCE WITH THE ENVOYS OF THE AMERICAN STATES, AND MONS. TALLEYRAND... (London, 1798). Gerry remained in France, still attempting to negotiate, but finally returned to America in disgust. At this point "After President Adams saw reports of the XYZ affair, he considered asking for a declaration of war. Congress demanded to see the reports and Adams delivered them in this address on January 21, 1799, the culmination of the scandal. Both houses were outraged, and when this 'Message' was published the clamored for war" - WELLSPRINGS OF A NATION. This copy is of the issue with the correct titlepage date, copies of which were originally circulated without the title or errata leaf, according to Evans. EVANS 36547. WELLSPRINGS OF A NATION 216.

Après avoir débarqué à Alexandrie, Il voyagea à travers toute l'Ethiopie, et dans les déserts de l'Egypte. C'est près de Kartoum qu'il repéra les sources du Nil bleu. James Bruce peut être considéré comme l'un des tout premiers explorateurs scientifiques sur terre : c'est en effet avec une grande rigueur qu'il amassa des connaissances précises sur la géographie, la faune et la flore, la météorologie.

Text pages, portrait, charts, and plates in clean crisp condition. The Foremost French Explorer in the Pacific in the 18th Century. This account of the Pacific voyage of discovery by La Pérouse was meant to verify and expand on Cook¿s discoveries, and promote French commercial interests, including trading in furs. La Pérouse sailed from France in 1785 with his two ships Boussole and Astrolabe toward the Northwest America. In the course of this voyage La Pérouse did not, as the title implies, simply circle the globe: rather, he crossed and re-crossed the Pacific, gathering and carefully recording scientific data, and making observations and illustrated depictions of the Pacific Northwest indigenous people. After rounding the Horn, La Pérouse visited in succession Easter Island, Hawaii, Alaska, California, Manila, Formosa, Japan and Kamchatka (sending his first reports home by overland); from there he proceeded south to Tonga, and Botany Bay (where again reports were dispatched home). After leaving Botany Bay, the ships and crew abruptly vanished without a trace. The French government sent a searching expedition under D¿Entrecasteaux in 1791-94, but failed to find any clues related to their disappearance. Interestingly, the large folding map "Chart of the Coasts of America and Asia" that accompanies La Pérouse¿s work shows a rather accurate depiction of Alexander Mackenzie¿s 1789 water route from Great Slave Lake to the Arctic Ocean, three years before Mackenzie's book and maps were published. We know of no work on Mackenzie, or bibliographic entry on either La Pérouse or Mackenzie that notes this significant feature. The makers of the map in London must have had some access to Mackenzie's travels, albeit probably unauthorized access, for it is unlikely that Mackenzie would have allowed his discovery to be announced to the public on a map accompanying a French explorer's work, and especially without any formal credit to himself. Interestingly, the map also shows the mouth of the Coppermine River at the Arctic Ocean, as mapped by Samuel Hearne. One may recall that Hearne was in charge of Prince of Wales Fort in 1782 when he surrendered to La Pérouse and the French Naval forces. La Pérouse's found Hearne¿s journal, and in recognition of its significance, gave it back to Hearne on the condition that he publish it. Hearne worked on his book and maps up to his death in 1792; the book was finally published in 1795. Ironically, the details of Hearne's exploration made it onto the map accompanying La Pérouse's work.

        Philosophie de l'univers. Troisième édition. Augmentée de plusieurs notes et d'une table des matières.

      Paris: chez Goujon Fils, 1799 (Fructidor, An VII) - Octavo (196 x 120 mm). Late 19th or early 20th century half calf and marbled boards by George J. Swayne of Brooklyn, spine decorated gilt in compartments, morocco labels, marbled edges and endpapers. Paper very lightly toned, very occasional spotting; frontispiece a little frayed at top, image unaffected; a very good copy. Engraved frontispiece portrait of the author. Engraved armorial bookplate of Alexis and Elizabeth du Pont of Rencourt to front pastedown. Third and final edition of Dupont's "treatise attempting to state a philosophy of life" (Saricks), first published in 1792 and addressed to his long-time friend Lavoisier. "From the dates given at the beginning of the book, the Philosophie de l'univers was apparently written between December 20, 1792, and June 10,1793. With the Philosophie, Dupont included the Oromasis, a prose-poem which, according to his statement in the preface, was written while he was concealed in the observatory after August 10. Although of inferior quality, this little work displays the same sublime optimism which Condorcet was able to muster in somewhat similar circumstances while composing his famous essay on human progress. The basis of his 'philosophy of the universe' is that nothing is done by chance. Providential laws direct the whole universe, as accords with good physiocratic doctrine" (ibid.). Einaudi 1673; Schelle 64. Not in Goldsmiths' or Kress. Sowerby, Catalogue of the Library of Thomas Jefferson, 1264, has the second edition, sent to Jefferson in 1798 prior to Du Pont's departure for America. See Saricks, Pierre Samuel Du Pont de Nemours, p.221ff.

      Lisbon: na Off. de Antonio Rodrigues Galhardo, 1799. Near contemporary calf, spine gilt (slightly worn, head & foot of spine chipped).. Signature Ss (pp. 321-28) of Vol. I in duplicate, some slight traces of worming on inside covers.. Cultura Americana is a partial translation of a little-known work, American Husbandry, containing an account of the soil, climate, production and agriculture of the British colonies in North America and the West Indies, with observations on the advantages and disadvantages of settling in them, compared with Great Britain and Ireland, by an American (London, J. Bew, 1775), published anonymously. The translator prudently omits the last four chapters in which the author speculates on the importance of the colonies to Britain, on manufacturing in America, American political representation, the mutual importance of each country, on a union between Great Britain and her colonies, and the possibility that America might become the head of the empire "in a period extremely distant," probably because the idea of separating Brazil from Portuguese rule would have been anathema to the Portuguese authorities.

      ondon, 1799 Book. Good. Hardcover. A scarce collection of engravings by English artists.

An interesting, if eclectic, collection of 18th century engravings and reproductions. An unusual work. Copac lists a copy held at the British Library, and copies also held at Yale university.

All the plates in this volume are mentioned in the handwritten contents page. This includes several engravings by George Bickhamthe Younger. Other illustrations of interest include the two engraved title pages, one from the Lady's Pocket Magazine 1795 and the other from The Infant Vision of Shakespeare 1796. Also of note is an unattributed engraving of Isaac Newton which we have been unable to find reproduced elsewhere. Condition: In a half calf binding with marbled boards. Externally, sound.

        Mécanique philosophique, ou analyse raisonnée des diverses parties de la science de l'équilibre et du mouvement.

      Paris, De l'Imprimerie de la République, An VIII, (1799). - in-4, 2ff.-VIIpp.-477pp.-1f. Cartonnage de l'éditeur papier marbré, entièrement non rogné, étiquette. (État de parution). Édition originale, tirée à part du Journal de l'École Polytechnique (tome III, 7° et 8° cahiers). L'ouvrage était initialement prévu en cinq parties, mais les deux dernières, annoncées au verso du faux-titre, n'ont jamais paru. Texte majeur dans l'?uvre de Prony, qui reprend ses cours dispensés à l'École Polytechnique depuis sa création en 1794. Conçu sous forme synoptique dans un but pédagogique, ce travail se veut un tableau complet des théorèmes de la mécanique. Il en rassemble les définitions, les problèmes et les résultats (statique, dynamique, hydrostatique et hydrodynamique), en donnant au lecteur "les moyens de bien saisir l'ensemble et la correspondance des diverses parties de la science". L'ingénieur, physicien et mathématicien Marie de Prony débuta sa carrière par un "Mémoire sur la poussée des voûtes", dans lequel il défendait le téméraire projet du pont de Neuilly, à tablier horizontal. Directeur, puis inspecteur général de l'École des Ponts-et-Chaussées, la théorie et la pratique lui doivent quelques avancées. Un frein porte son nom. (Quérard VII, p. 354 - D.S.B. XI, pp. 163-166 - Bibliotheca mechanica p. 268). - Intérieur du volume et cartonnage très frais. Les coutures sont légèrement distendues, un cahier pratiquement détaché.
