        EUMENES: BEING A COLLECTION OF PAPERS, WRITTEN FOR THE PURPOSE OF EXHIBITING SOME OF THE MORE PROMINENT ERRORS AND OMISSIONS OF THE CONSTITUTION OF THE STATE OF NEW- JERSEY.AND TO PROVE THE NECESSITY OF CALLING A CONVENTION, FOR REVISION AND AMENDMENT.

      Trenton: Printed by G. Craft, . 1799 - vi,[9]-149,[6]pp. Later plain wrappers, paper label. Wrappers edgeworn, splitting along front hinge. Light, even tanning. About very good. In a half morocco box. This copy bears the ownership signature of Elisha Boudinot on page 29. The tract's author, William Griffith, studied law in Boudinot's office in Newark before being admitted to the bar in 1788. Boudinot's brother Elias was an important New Jersey lawyer and politician, a member of the Continental Congress in the 1770s and 1780s, and a U.S. Representative from 1789 to 1795. This scarce collection of essays by William Griffith, a prominent Burlington lawyer and legal writer, argues for the revision of the Revolutionary-era New Jersey constitution. The original constitution, crafted over a period of five days and signed just before the Declaration of Independence, was a document that did little more than proclaim the state's independence from royal authority and establish a basic framework for government. In these essays, some of which had been printed in the STATE GAZETTE, Griffith sought to "bring home to every man's heart, a conviction of the actual evils which arise out of the theoretic errors of the constitution." The fifty-three essays point out the defects in the constitution and describe Griffith's alternatives on issues such as the judiciary, representation, etc. Though Griffith and his Federalist cohorts supported revising the 1776 constitution, the Republicans in the state opposed revision and carried the day. The New Jersey constitution would not be revised until 1844. EVANS 35570. FELCONE 105. SABIN 28829. COHEN 3194.

      A Lausanne, De l?Imprimerie d?Henri Emanuel Vincent s.d. [1799, resp. 1800]. - Tome 2 u. 6 (v. 8). 8°. 608, 2 Falttabn., resp. 366 SS. Druck auf Bütten (unbeschnitten, grösstenteils unaufgeschnitten). OInterims-Brosch. (mit Kleisterfarbe behandelte Makulatur; Rücken ungefärbt, von vol. 1 mit Fehlstelle) mit hs. Rückenschildern. Stellenweise leichte Bräunungen. Etwas Alters- u. Lagerungs-, wenig Gebrauchsspuren, beide Titel mit Besitzervermerk. Gesamthaft saubere, recht gute Exemplare. Delvaux pp. 24-26 (?Tome II?) und pp. 32-34 (?Tome 6?). - Bedeutende und bemerkenswert seltene Rechtsquelle für die Helvetische Republik von 1798?1803. - Besitzervermerk ?A. Nicole Dr.?: wohl Alphonse Marie Ferdinand Nicole (Duillier 1789-1874 Trélex), Jurist und Politiker. 1814-1835 liberaler Waadtländer Grossrat. 1818 Ernennung zum öffentlichen Chefankläger. [.] 1830 war er Richter am Appellationsgericht, 1831 Vizepräsident des Waadtländer Verfassungsrats und 1832 Gesandter an die ausserordentliche Tagsatzung in Luzern. (etc.; B. Anelli, in: HLS). -- Vom ersten Titel (Barth 3928: ?5 Cahiers. Lausanne 1798?1800?) finden sich Titelvariationen wie z.B. ?[.] du Conseil Législatif? zwischen 1798 und 1801 fünf Hefte. Der zweite Titel (Barth 4951: ?1799-Sept. 1801. 2 vol. Lausanne [180.].? sic), offenbar die Fortsetzung einer Fortsetzung des ersten, ist zwischen 1799 und 1800/1803 in drei Heften erschienen. Konzept und Titel dieser Sammlung von Gesetzeserlassen dürfte den Zeitumständen entsprechend relativ spontan gehandhabt worden sein. Akribisch bibliographiert finden sich diese Publikationen bei: P. Delvaux, La République en papier. Circonstances d?impression et pratiques de dissémination des lois sous la République helvétique (1798?1803). 2 vol. Genève 2004 (für die französischsprachigen Versionen wie die vorliegenden vgl. bes. vol. II, pp. 22?37). -- Tome 2 des ?Bulletin des Lois et Décrets? (die französische Version des ?Tageblatt der Gesetze und Dekrete der gesetzgebenden Räthe, nebst den Beschlüssen und Proklamationen des vollziehenden Direktoriums der helvetischen Republik?; vgl. z.B. Barth 23619, 23621 u. 3878), reicht vom 20. September 1798 bis zum 4. Mai 1799; Tome 6 der ?Arrêtés et Proclamations? dokumentiert Inhalte vom 3. Januar 1799 bis 8. August 1800. Die Falttafeln in Cahier II sind Beispiele von Sold- und Tariftabellen für die Helvetische Armee. - Im ?Bulletin des lois et décrets? sind vorwiegend Gesetze und Dekrete enthalten, aber auch Proklamationen, personelle Ernennungen u.ä. vom 20. September 1798 bis Anfang Mai 1799; daran schliesst sich mit Datum vom 4. Mai 1799 u.a. noch der ?Code Pénal? (das ?Peinliche Gesetzbuch?, i.e. Strafgesetzbuch) an. ?Ein schweizerisches Zivilgesetzbuch jedoch kam nicht zustande; es blieb bei einigen Bruchstücken. [.] Jedoch gelang den Räten die Vollendung eines schweizerischen Strafgesetzbuches, das dem humanen Geist der Zeit entsprach. Es schloss sich eng an das französische Vorbild an, schaffte die Folter ab und enthielt strenge Strafbestimmungen gegen die Feinde des Einheitsstaates. Dieses Strafgesetzbuch blieb auch nach dem Sturze der Helvetik in einigen Kantonen fortbestehen.? (E. Bonjour, Geschichte der Schweiz im neunzehnten und zwanzigsten Jahrhundert, 1937, p. 41. Vgl. dazu auch die spezifische Erörterung von A. Teichmann, ?Das Helvetische peinliche Gesetzbuch?, in: F. v. Liszt, Hsg., Das Strafrecht der Staaten Europas, 1894, pp. 368 ff.). -- Einlässlich und ausführlich behandelt diesen Zeitabschnitt sowie die verfassungsmässigen und rechtlichen Aspekte J. Schollenberger, Geschichte der Schweizerischen Politik (Bd. 2, 1908, pp. 8 ff., bes. 24-70). ?Zur Stellung dieses Abschnittes zwischen Verfassung einerseits und dem zweiten Koalitionskrieg [1799-1801/1802] und den Verfassungsrevisionen und Staatsstreichen anderseits ist, um sie zu rechtfertigen, folgendes zu bemerken. Zwar erstreckt sich die Staatstätigkeit der Helvetik natürlich über deren ganze Zeit. Aber sie ist immerhin am eigenartigsten und am fruchtbarsten in der Zeit VOR dem zweiten Koalitionskrieg [1798?1802 [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Atlas only to 'A Voyage around the World'

      London: G.G. and J. Robinson, 1799. Map rubbed and reinforced at some creases, intermittent browning and a few spots, good overall in old marbled boards with backstrip renewed, joints starting.. Folio, with 69 plates and charts including folding map. Atlas to the French-language London edition of La Pérouse. The atlas comprises some 69 plates and charts (including the large folding world map), each bearing the London imprint dated 1 November 1798. Most of the pictorial plates were engraved by James Heath, who also executed many of the images for Cook's third voyage account. The atlas stands alone as one of the great romantic depictions of the South Pacific published in the late eighteenth-century, with incisive cartography and botanical plates interspersed with tantalising island idylls. As the preface announces, the 'book now laid before the world is one of the most magnificent in its conception, and recent in its execution', a claim still valid over two hundred years since its publication.

        AN AUTHENTIC ACCOUNT OF AN EMBASSY FROM THE KING OF GREAT BRITAIN TO THE EMPEROR

      Philadelphia 1799, Campbell.Full old calf, 2 vols. in 1, 297. +267p. +24p appendix, 8 copper engravings, 13 x 22 cm., with. brown stain from beginning p. eventually getting lighter to. page 90, else clean, spine bit split, corners rubbed, solid.. THE OFFICIAL RECORD: The official account of Earl McCartney's informative but unsuccessful mission to establish formal diplomatic and commercial relations with China. Staunton accompanied the Embassy as Secretary & compiled his book chiefly from the papers of the Ambassador & his fellow envoys. A fascinating true history of the expedition, useful primary source. * IMPORTANT NOTE ! Only the FIRST EDITION of this work contains the atlas folio. Other different or later editions are as described. Beautiful views of Cochin-China, Macao, Yang-Tzw river life, many other views of China. Highly collectable title, documenting the first English Embassy to China. A most handsome addition to any great collection. This work is seldom found in its complete state, with the atlas of maps & superb copper engraved plates, with nice frontis engravings in volumes 1 & 2 of McCartney and Tchien Lung, the Great Emperor of China. * THE ATLAS OR FOLIO: Not issued until 1798: The atlas was copper etched, it contains a folded general chart of the track followed by the two ships around the world, along with 43 other fine charts, maps, plans and marvelous illustrations, with superb views recorded for posterity. * THE PLATES: The lively and large plates illustrate coastal views, birds of an unusual character, natives and other images of significance. Expertly drawn and engraved. * By and large, the best single English language item done on China in the 18th century ! George Staunton [1737-1801] was a British diplomat, in 1774 Dr. Samuel Johnson met Staunton and they became life-long friends. Although the official mission to China failed, a wealth of precious information was collected and published in this first comprehensive official account. During this period of time, Great Britain was anxious to establish formal diplomatic relations with China and open usual trade relations. The unwilling Chinese resisted all Western foreign intervention in China. In the end the gifts and arguments were rejected. * THE FOLIO: The folio [when present] contains [102p.], 5 large folding maps, 50 finely engraved plates, large format, ca. 58 x 43 cm., fresh, clean copy, no foxing. * **** BIBLIOGRAPHY: E. Cox: A REFERENCE GULIDE TO THE LITERATURE OF TRAVEL, P.334-345. * Lust 545. * H. H. Cordier: SINICA 2381-82. * Hill: Pacific Voyages, p280-281, 1628, p.250. * Maggs: Catalog no. 521:"Apart from its Chinese importance, is of considerable interest owing to the various places visited en route, including Madeira, Teneriff, Rio de Janero, St. Helena, Tristan D'Acuna, Amsterdam Island, Java, Sumatra, Cochin-China, etc." * Cox I, p.334: "A most interesting account of Chinese manners & customs at the close of the 18th century." * Color scans can be sent by email.

Per Lawrence and we summarize, he was a celebrated Ukiyo-e painter, printmaker and illustrator born in Suruga province. He was also the star pupil of Kitao Shigemasa, and worked until 1797 as an Ukiyo-e artist under the 'Go' or studio name of Kitao Masayoshi, designing numerous prints & and illustrating books. * In 1797, he became the official painter to the Daimyo of Tsuyama & was also given some training by Kano Eisen'in. He took his grandmother's name of Kuwagata and then began to work in the Kano school style. Eventually retired and became a lay monk. He is known for his subtle and tender lines, his prints of lowers done with delicacy. His work is charming, expressing innocence and with remarkable delicacy and softness. * The current work is a collection of his color drawings of mostly human figures with a sprinkling of a few animals. Hokusai was influenced by his unique style, which found its way into the his famous series title: HOKUSAI MANGA. These caricature are done with naive innocence, with a dash of fun intended, and some irony. The work shows a great diversity in his ability to draw and perceive the Japanese people of the late 18th century. Delicately pastel colored, revealing his zest for life. A wide variety and large number of his quaint drawings are presented in this book. A delight to behold ! For a companion volume in the same style on animals, birds, fish, insects, please inquire for his CHOJU RYAKU GASHIKI. * BIBLIOGRAPHY: This famous work has been highly collected over the last 200 years by the most famous libraries and collectors world- wide. It is cited in most of the standard bibliographies. Most cite the date as 1795 however oar's clearly states the date as Kansei 11th year, or 1799. It is possible that some bibliographers are citing the preface date. Ours clearly has a dated colophon of the above year. There is some distinct confusion between the first edition & some later editions, which bear alternate titles: KEISAI RYAKUGA-SHIKI & JIMBUTSU RYAKUGA-SHIKI. See below for some evidence of this problem. *** BIBLIOGRAPHY REFERENCES: * C.H. Mitchell: THE ILLUSTRATED BOOKS OF THE NANGA, MARUYAMA, SHIJO AND OTHER RELATED SCHOOLS OF JAPAN, p.453.

      Paris, Didot jeune, an 7 (1799). - Ledereinband der Zeit mit 2 roten Rückenschildern, reicher Rückenvergoldung, goldgeprägten Deckelfilten und Stehkantenvergoldung (Ecken und Kanten teilweise bestoßen, etwas berieben, 2 Kapitale mit kleinen Fehlstellen). Brunet I, 674 (diese Ausgabe): "Bélle édition, plus complète queles trois prem. . La grande carte de la Grèce avec ses colonies, qui forme le no. 1 de l'atlas, n'a été publiée qu'en 1811, et manque conséquemment dans une partie des exemplaires." - Druckvermerk von Bd. 1 vom Verleger signiert. – Anacharsis ist ein sagenumwobener Skythe, der zu Solons Zeiten (um 600 v. Chr.) eine Entdeckungsreise durch Griechenland unternommen haben soll. Trotz seiner barbarischen Abstammung wurde er mitunter zu den Sieben Weisen gezählt und gilt als Vorsokratiker.Herodot erzählt in seinen Historien, Anacharsis sei Bruder des skythischen Königs Saulios (Saulinos) gewesen und habe ein sanftes Wesen und Wissbegierde besessen – im Gegensatz zu seinem von den Griechen stets als primitiv und kulturfeindlich beschriebenen Volk. Seine Neugier habe ihn lange Reisen unternehmen lassen, die ihn auch nach Griechenland führten. Strabo nennt ihn als den Erfinder des zweiflunkigen Ankers, häufig wird ihm auch die Erfindung der Töpferscheibe zugeschrieben. / / Name und Gestalt des Anacharsis wurden in der späteren Geistesgeschichte immer wieder zur Kennzeichnung eines vorurteilslosen, kritischen Zeitgenossen verwendet. An die Figur des Anacharsis knüpft im 18. Jahrhundert die literarische Fiktion des Jüngeren Anacharsis an. Jean-Jacques Barthélémy machte ihn zum Helden seines 1788 unter dem Titel „Voyage du Jeune Anacharsis en Grece“ erschienenen großen Reiseromans, der das Griechenlandbild seiner Zeit entscheidend prägte.

        Essays on Physiognomy, designed to promote the knowledge and love of mankind.. illustrated by more than eight hundred engravings.. executed by, or under the inspection of, Thomas Holloway. Translated from the French by Henry Hunter

      London: printed for John Murray [and others], 1799. 3 volumes in five, large quarto signed in 2s. (13 1/2 x 11 inches). Three half-titles, two section titles, 10pp. list of subscribers. 3 engraved title vignettes, 173 plates by William Blake (1), Thomas Holloway and others, after Henry Fuseli and others, about 361 engraved text illustrations by Blake (3), Thomas Holloway and others after Fuseli and others, extra-illustrated with an early proof state of the illustration by F. Bartolozzi on p.411 in the final volume, printed on a separate small format sheet and bound in so that it immediately precedes the finished illustration. Contemporary diced russia, covers bordered in gilt with double fillets and an inner intermittent roll with stylised neo-classical cornerpieces, spines in six compartments with double raised bands, the bands flanked by gilt fillets and highlighted with an intermittent roll, lettered in the second compartment, the gilt stamp of the Earl of Camperdown in the third compartment, the volume number in the fifth, the other compartments small central stylised flower-head tool, the date and place of publication at the foot of each volume, gilt turn-ins, marbled endpapers, marbled edges Provenance: Robert Dundas Duncan-Haldane, 1st Earl of Camperdown of Lundie (1785-1859, bindings) The very fine Camperdown set of the first edition in English of this influential work, with four images engraved by William Blake, and the whole work overseen by Henry Fuseli. Lavater's work was first published in German ("Physiognomische Fragmente zur Beförderung der Menschenkenntnis und Menschenliebe") between 1775 and 1778. Fuseli, a friend from Lavater's youth, was one of the moving forces behind the present "sumptuous edition" (Lowndes) which was first published in 41 parts between January 1788 and March 1799. "Lavater's name would be forgotten but for ... [the various editions of the present work] ... The fame of this book, which found admirers in France and England as well as Germany, rests largely upon the handsome style of publication and the accompanying illustrations. The two principal sources from which Lavater developed his physiognomical studies were the writings of the Italian polymath Giambattista della Porta, and the observations made by Sir Thomas Browne in his Religio Medici (translated into German in 1748 and praised by Lavater)." (Wikipedia). There are four Blake engravings: a portrait of Democritus (after Rubens) is here bound in vol.II between pp. 158 and 159, and there are three signed illustrations in vol.I on pp.127, 206 and 225. Bentley notes that in 1810, Stockdale issued a new edition with his imprint, on paper watermarked 1806, and there is a also an issue published in about 1817-1818. Bentley Blake Books 481; Lowndes II, p.1321.

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

      London: Published by R. Ackermann's 101 Strand, 1799. Coloured aquatint. Early colour. Printed on wove paper. In excellent condition. 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 Satires..in the British Museum Vol. VII, 9478; Grego, Rowlandson i, 354-355.

Note: Not all of our copies are bound in this exact format, some are 4 volume sets only. Please inquire prior to ordering to confirm you are ordering exactly the set & edition you want. *** THE AUTHOR: KATAKURA: This work was written by Katakura [1750-1822] a Japanese physician who came from a long line of doctors & Rangaku-sha [Scholars of Dutch learning & physicians] and was a pupil of Gentetsu Kagawa the founder of obstetrical science [1700-1776]. 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], various presentations of the fetus for delivery, after-birth, uterus and the location of where the after-birth & placenta were attached, thus an excellent description of what are "easy" vs. "difficult" births. Various breech forms, use of whale-bone forceps, methods of "turning" the fetus during a breech [by positioning the mother or by insertion of the whole arm to forcefully turn the baby. * THE TEXT: TAKE FROM ANCIENT CHINESE WORKS The texts was written Kambun, an ancient form of Chinese characters used in Japan, this has the standard "Furigana" Japanese sounds written along the Kanji characters to give sound and meaning to Japanese readers, with grammatical marks, thus making it easy for less than well-studied Japanese to read and understand. It was therefore also used by mid-wives for assistance in child-birth. The original Chinese title was most likely lost or changed by the time this text came to Japan. *** DUTCH ATTRIBUTION: . This work was also most likely based on Heinrich Van Deventer: NEUES HABAMMENLICHT, Jena, 1740, 4th edition. The illustrations on p.20 follow those of Deventer's exactly see VEITH, Ilza. THE BEGINNINGS OF JAPANESE OBSTETRICS figures:3, 4, on pp.52, 53 for these examples. *** SIZE OF THE BOOKS: The size varies just a bit depending on the original binder, average size is 18 x 27 cm. some leaves are shorter, text and illustrations remains identical. *** THIS IS A RARE BOOK ! . A RARE and early woodblock printed and illustrated classic ! A stunning and superb work with a good number of period illustrations, nicely done and finely executed. *** REFERENCES: MESTLER, Gordon E.

        [Map of the World on a Globular Projection, Exhibiting Particularly the Nautical Researches of Capn. James Cook, F.R.S. with all the Recent Discoveries to the Present Time, ... This Map Is Respectfully Dedicated To Alexander Dalrymple Esqr. F.R.S. In Testimony of his many New and Valuable Geographical Communications To His most Obedient and very Humble Servant A. Arrowsmith]

      [London: Compiled and Published by Aaron Arrowsmith, 1799. Engraved double-hemispheric world map, printed on four sheets and joined to form a pair of large folding sheets (one of each hemisphere), period hand-colouring in outline. On wove paper watermarked J. Ruse. (Expert restoration along the folds). A fine large-scale world map incorporating the discoveries made on Captain Cook's voyages, compiled and published by one of the greatest English cartographers. This map was first issued in 1794 and was one of the maps which made Arrowsmith's reputation. The map shows both hemispheres on a large scale and with impressive detail. Notably, the chart shows the tracks of all three of Cook's voyages, as well as information gleaned from other world travellers (for example, discoveries by Mackenzie and Hearne in the Canadian Arctic). The map was corrected and re-issued in 1799 (as here), 1808 and 1814. The present example is from the 1799 plates, but without the title and dedication which were printed on separate sheets and are sometimes are found trimmed and mounted onto the map when when joined as a single wall map. Stevens and Tree identify the above four issues based on the imprints; this copy without that information, but can be dated to the 1799 issue cartographically, i.e. with Bass Strait present and named between Australia and Tasmania, and with no indication of the Louisiana Purchase. 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 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. In that year he 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 publishers 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.

        L'État des pauvres, ou Histoire des classes travaillantes de la société en Angleterre. Depuis la conquête jusqu'à l'époque actuelle, etc.

      Paris, Imprimerie de H. Agasse, an VIII, (1799), - in-8, [2]-262 pp., 2 tableaux dépl., broché sous couv. gris-bleu muette de l'époque.Étiquette imprimée et auteurs manuscrits au dos. Non rogné. Rare première édition de la traduction française par le duc de La Rochefoucauld-Liancourt. « Le State of the poors est au nombre des classiques de l'économie politique. Eden fut amené à s'intéresser à l'énorme inflation provoquée par la guerre avec la France en 1794 et 1795, et à l'effet qu'elle provoqua sur les classes les plus pauvres de la population. Il mit en place le cadre de son enquête en visitant diverses paroisses et, pour obtenir les autres renseignements employa une personne, qui devint ainsi le premier chercheur de terrain. Sa méthode est demeurée la base de l'enquête sociologique. N'oublions pas que Malthus décrivait Eden comme le seul disciple d'Adam Smith qui ait produit une ?uvre significative au XVIIIème siècle » (P.M.M.). La traduction est du duc de La Rochefoucauld-Liancourt (1747-1827), député de la noblesse à la Constituante. Membre actif des Feuillants, il anima le Comité de mendicité. Il rapportera de son voyage en Amérique une relation enthousiaste. L'énorme travail d'Eden, « 3 gros vol. in-4, ne trouverait en France que peu de lecteurs ». La Rochefoucauld présente donc des extraits de la partie historique qui « montrera les conséquences funestes, irrémédiables, et néanmoins nécessaires d'un premier pas fait inconsidérément dans la carrière de la législation pour les pauvres. Elle avertira les législateurs français d'éviter un écueil aussi dangereux ». Notons que les éditions modernes en anglais sont abrégées et suivent le découpage de notre traducteur.

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 amusing image, which is number four in the series, Rowlandson gives a brick dust vendor, who puts his apish mug face to face with the pretty young maidservant while he pours brick dust into her bowl. And obviously the question: "Do you want any brick-dust?" is, for him, laden with other hopes. Behind her an old woman looks on in horror while the dog barks at the ill-favored vendor.

        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

      London: A. Arrowsmith, No. 24 Rathbone Place, 1799. Engraved map, period hand-colouring in outline, printed on six full sheets and two half sheets, joined to form a pair of large folding sheets. 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 1802 (this latter date clearly being incorrect as contemporary ads by Arrowsmith and reviews of his maps show his address as Rathbone Place by 1801). The present map is on wove paper watermarked 1799, suggesting the year of publication for this issue. The present copy conforms cartographically with Stevens's and Tree's fourth issue (i.e. with a 1794 dated note concerning the discovery of Wake Island in the Pacific, a 4-line note concerning McKenzie's discoveries in the Arctic and with Van Dieman's Land connected to the mainland), but with the imprint of their sixth issue. (It would appear that what Stevens and Tree cite as the fifth issue is actually a unique copy of the fourth issue, with additions as per the sixth issue comprised of an overlay showing Van Dieman's land). All issues of this separately-issued map are rare. Wagner, Cartography of the Northwest Coast 744; Beddie 506; Stevens & Tree, "Comparative Cartography" 90, in Tooley, The Mapping of America.

        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 by Major Rennell. Second edition.

      London, W. Bulmer and Co., 1799.4to. Contemporary mottled calf, skilfully rebacked with the original spine laid down, spine richly gilt. . With engraved portrait, 2 plates with musical scores, 3 folding maps (1 tear rep.) and 5 engraved plates (2 folding). XXVIII,372,XCII,(2) pp.Published in the same year as the first edition; with bookplate of J.S.W.S. Erle Drax. - Mungo Park (1771-1806) was the first European to reach the well-nigh fabulous waters of the Niger. He followed the river almost to the Senegal valley. He finally reached Gambia after a lengthy return journey. His journal included a detailed description of travel conditions, the nature of the area, rivers, and customs of various tribes. 'Park'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's career was short, but he made the first great practical advance in the opening-up of Central Africa' (PMM 253). Written in a straightforward unpretentious, narrative style, it gave readers their first realistic description of everyday life in west Africa, depicting without the censorious, patronizing contempt which so often has disfigured European accounts of Africa (DNB).- Some age-browning and offsetting of the plates otherwise a beautiful copy. Cox I, p.394; Gay 2788; Ibrahim-Hilmy II, p.93; Hess & Coger 5655; Scheybeler,The Paolo Bianchi Collection, 279; Howgego P21.
