        [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.

        Cries of London No: 4 Do You Want any Brick-dust

      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 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.

        Catalogues of the birds, shells, and some of the more rare plants, of Dorsetshire. From the new and enlarged edition of Mr. Hutchins';s history of that county

      Printed by, J. Nichols, for the use of the compiler and his friends, London 1799 - (14 5/8 x 9 1/8 inches). Text in two columns. [2],92pp. Contemporary half calf over marbled paper covered boards, flat spine tooled and lettered in gilt, marbled endpapers (expert repairs at spine) Very rare first edition of a rare catalogue of British birds, plants and shells. Richard Pulteney received his doctorate in medicine from the University of Edinburgh in 1764, before serving as the personal physician to the Earl of Bath. Following the Earl's death, he resided and practiced in Blandford, Dorset. Besides membership in a host of medical societies, Pulteney was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society, as well as a Fellow of the Linnean Society. Indeed, he was an early promoter of Linnaean taxonomy, and authored the first English biography of Linnaeus in 1781. His cabinet of specimens, noted particularly for its shells, was donated to the Linnean Society following his death in 1801. This work is divided into three sections, viz. birds (pp. 1-22), shells (pp. 22-54) and plants (pp. 55-92), each with a prefatory note, and all preceded by a cancel title. Nissen and BM(NH) erroneously cite a portrait in this edition. Privately-published by Pulteney, few copies were printed; bookseller John Bohn cites fifty copies printed in an 1843 catalogue. Furthermore, it is believed that many printed copies were destoyed in the 1808 fire at Nichols' warehouse. ESTC cites but 7 extant examples, with only one being in North America (Academy of Natural Sciences of Philadelphia). ESTC T140194; BM(NH) IV:p. 1622; Pritzel 7367; Nissen, ZBI 3250.

        Manuscript - Spanish Privateering of Captured American Brig "La Maria" in Waters Near Andalucia, Spain - Cargo of Coffee, Sugar, Cocoa & Textiles - Text in Spanish

      Spain, 1799. Spain circa 1799-1800. Manuscript naval document in Spanish, in a very neat hand, detailing charges laid by the shipping agent of the Spanish privateer La Esperanza against an American brig, La Maria, following her capture in waters near Andalucia, Spain. Verso bears contemporary annotation in English stating the document?'s content, "Copy of charges against Brig Maria". Text is in Spanish, with English filing annotations to verso. Folio, 6 pages, on two double leaves, laid paper measuring approximately 20 x 33cm, each with two watermarks, being the year 1799, and the crowned cameo of Britannia. Very good condition. Coffee, Sugar, Cocoa and Textiles Pillaged from the Brig Maria by a Spanish Privateer A document arguing for a captured American brig, the Maria, to be declared legitimate prize. It is written by Don Manuel de Medina y Ximénez, shipping agent to the Spanish privateer, La Esperanza (Master Francisco Mendez), which along with two others, La Virgen del Carmen (Master Damian Jabarron) and St Joseph y Animas (alias El Africano, Master Manuel de Huelba) captured the Maria off the coast of Tarifa in Spanish waters in the late 1790s. The prize tribunal deciding whether the Maria, with a cargo of sugar, coffee, cocoa, textiles and other goods, had yet to issue its findings and it seems Medina y Ximénez wrote this letter to encourage a finding in the privateers' favour by claiming that the crew of the Maria were lying about the brig?'s nationality, cargo and destination. In it, he sets out the evidence in support of his argument. Excerpts from the manuscript: "Don Manuel de Medina y Ximinez consignatario del falucho corsario titulado la Esperanza su Captn. Francisco Mendez, ante v.s. como mas haya lugar, y a reserva de otro recurso, o accion que a midro compreta, de que protesto usar en tpo, y forma digo. Que naviendo corsario que represento en captain en Competa del nombrasa la virgen el carmen su Capt. Damian Gabarron y del Sr. Josef y Animas (alias) el africans su Capt. Manuel de Huelba detenido en la costa de Tarifa y conduciendo a este puerto el Bergatin Americano la Maria cargado de asucar, café, cacao, musolinas y otro efectos... les papels aprehendidos... inseccionados." The first a letter from a George Ammoy of Philadelphia to the purser of the Maria, Thomas Masters, instructing him to sell Ammoy's cargo by bills of exchange drawn in London which were then to be used to purchase products suitable for the American market. This, according to Medina y Ximénez, proved that not all the cargo on board the Maria belonged to Floremento Dusard of Philadelphia as the crew of the brig claimed. Tenuously, he also argued that since payment was to be accepted in the form of bills of exchange drawn in London then Ammoy, at least, must have some business based in London and therefore his part of the cargo could legitimately be termed prize. A further proof that the brig and its cargo could be considered British was that the letter instructed for the Maria to return across the Atlantic in convoy but places on convoys could only be obtained at Gibraltar with British papers. Excerpts from the manuscript: "El primer documento que aparsce en antos, es viva carta escriba en Filadelphia... Jorge Ammoy a el sobre cargo del Bergatin la Maria... factura de los efectos que la ha entregado lo remita en letras sobre Londres..." The second piece of evidence was another letter, this time from the Gibraltar-branch of the British trading company Turnbull & Co. to F. Dusard in Philadelphia remitting a list of current Gibraltar prices for merchant goods. It demonstrated that the Maria's intended destination was Gibraltar. This was a clear violation of the Pinckney Treaty of 1795 between the United States and Spain since Spain and Britain were at war and Gibraltar was under blockade by the Spanish. At this point, Medina y Ximénez adds that the Maria had shot a live round over the bow of La Esperanza and that the Maria?'s guns had been loaded at the time she was seized which if the brig had truly been American would also have been against the dictates of the Pinckney Treaty. The master, purser and pilot of the Maria all denied this last point. Excerpts from the manuscript: "La segundo que este parte de carga es de lexitima propriedad inglesa, puesto que se ordena que se producto de vente segun factura se remita a Londres y que residu se retorno a Filadelphia... Ammoy es un mero consignatario del proprietario Ingles... dificultad en creer... y que o esta oportunidad se le presente a Gibraltar... a esta Plaza... de aqui es aquella ambiguedad conque se habla..." His third and final piece of evidence was that the Maria had a British flag on board. Though the crew claimed that this was to ward off potential threats, it could only have been hoisted in the expectation that they would be boarded and searched which without legitimate British papers would have made the whole exercise pointless. In his account, Medina y Ximénez accuses the crew of hiding their British papers and concludes that beyond reasonable doubt the ship and cargo must be considered legitimate prize with the profits from its sale being split between the captors. Excerpts from the manuscript: "Por ultimo y concluyo trae esta Bergatin una Bandera Inglesa, con al fin dicen, de guaracersa de los tripolinos, y para all conocera muy bien la prenetalion de el tribunal, que es indispensable troigan las correspondientes papeles Ingles... porque sin ellos de nada las enarbolar aquello bandera... no tienen documentos con que legitimar la propriedad inglesa... This document highlights the dangers involved in both trade and privateering during the Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars. At the time, Spain and Britain were at war (1796-1802) making any merchantman that had either British colours or transported British goods liable to seizure as prize but, in 1795, the United States and Spain had signed Pinckney?'s Treaty which included clauses giving mutual assurance for the safety of each side?'s respective trade and ships. The importance of such protections were vital when during wartime it was common practice to issue letters of marque to privateers who would reap the rewards of the prizes they brought in. This, of course, depended on whether such prizes were legitimate. Disputes over the nature of ships and cargoes such as that described in this document were of vital significance both to the people that owned them as well as to the privateers who could potentially make a fortune, not only from the sale of the ships, but from the sale of such valuable cargoes as that of the Maria. The Treaty of San Lorenzo, also known as Pinckney?'s Treaty, negotiations being concluded on October 27, 1795, was an important diplomatic success for the United States. It resolved territorial disputes between the two countries and granted American ships the right to free navigation of the Mississippi River as well as duty-free transport through the port of New Orleans, then under Spanish control. Captain Gabarron, whom is mentioned in the testimony, is also known to have captured, near Gibraltar in 1806, the brig HMS Hannah under Lieutenant John Foote of the Royal Navy. Near Isla Cabrita Foote noticed the Spanish corsair towing an English vessel, and decided to face the enemy. The Spanish ship was faster and more powerful, and fired upon the English ship with ferocity, concluding with 8 dead and 11 wounded on the British side, and only 3 wounded Spanish. . Very Good.

        Marília de Dirceo. Por T.A.G.

      Lisbon, Na Officina Nunesiana , 1799. - 2 volumes bound in 1. 8°, mid-twentieth-century morocco (minor wear at corners), spine richly gilt with raised bands in five compartments, short-author-title gilt in second compartment from head, date in gilt at foot, covers with single ruled border in gilt and small vignette in gilt at each corner, marbled endleaves. Identical small typographical vignettes on title pages of volumes I and II. Title page and following leaf in volume I with soiling. Overall in good condition. 118 pp.; 108 pp., (1 blank l.). *** FIRST EDITION of part II; second edition of part I. @Very rare. The extreme rarity of this work has caused significant bibliographical confusion about editions and contents. The 1792 first edition of part I was unknown to many bibliographers (for example, Rodrigues and Innocêncio), and its existence was not revealed until 1879, in an article by Valle Cabral that appeared in the @Revista Brasileira I, 411. The two parts of the 1799 edition were not known until 1923, when their existence was announced in an article by Alberto de Oliveira in the @Revista da língua portuguêsa nº 26, 81-5. The third part, of doubtful authenticity appeared in Lisbon, 1800. Since beginning in business in 1969, we have handled 3 copies of the extremely rare first edition of part I, but we have only twice before handled (or even seen on the market) a copy of the 1799 edition. "If the 'Escola Mineira' had done nothing else, it could still be said that in Tomás António Gonzaga it had produced the most popular love poet who has written in Portuguese. Gonzaga's @Marília de Dirceu is second only to @The Lusiads of Camões in the number of editions it has had. down to the 1920's there had been a total of thirty-four" (Putnam, @Marvelous Journey, p. 87). The word "popular," when applied to the poetry of Gonzaga, should by no means be taken in any derogatory sense. Putnam continues, "There is no doubt that Tomás António Gonzaga is one of the fine love poets of the world. He is of the lineage of Petrarch; and if one had no other reason for learning Portuguese, the desire to read his poems would be sufficient motive" (p. 89).@Marília marks the transition of Portuguese and Brazilian literature from classicism to Romanticism, and in the words of Veríssimo, it "is of exceptional importance in Brazilian literature," forming "the supreme book of love, the noblest, the purest, the most deeply felt, the most beautiful which has been written in that tongue since Bernardim Ribeiro and the sonnets of Camões." Saraiva and Lopes elaborate: "com a sua variedade estrófica, o tirmo nitidamente marcado por versos curtos, rimas e estribilhos, com a grande simplificação do aparato mitológico, tornaram-no, em vésperas do Romantismo, o mais popular e reeditado dos nossos poetas de amor. . . . Em algumas destas composições projecta-se o espectáculo, familiar ao autor, do trabalho dos negros na mineração e culturas. Tudo isto se exprime através de uma arte estilística mais insinuante e segura, um artifício que ainda o não parecia, em comparação com os gostos mais ostensivamente eruditos da Arcádia" (@História da literatura portuguesa [1976], p. 697). And according to Jong, "Gonzaga must be counted among the very best lyric poets Brazil has had. After nearly two centuries, today his melancholy lyricism is not only still alive, but extremely popular and highly esteemed by literary critics. His most famous poetic work, @Marília de Dirceu, the first literary volume printed in Brazil, the most important work published by a Luso-Brazilian Arcadian, is one of the best works in all of Brazilian literature" (@Four Hundred Years of Brazilian Literature, p. 80).Born at Oporto, the son of a second-generation Brazilian father and a Portuguese mother (his maternal grandfather was English), Gonzaga (1744-1810?) came to Brazil at the age of seven with his father, who was @ouvidor geral in Pernambuco and later superintendent of gold mines in Bahia. Only at the age of 17 did Gonzaga return to Port [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Johnson (1709 -1784) wohl Englands größter Literat: Dichter, Essaist, Biograph sowie Kritiker. Ab 1737 lebte er in London und schlug sich mehr schlecht als recht durch für \"The Gentleman`s Magazine\". Zwischen 1747 und 1755 schrieb er an seinem wohl bekanntesten Werk \"A Dictionary of the English Language\". Ab 1762 erhielt er ein jährliche Pension des engl. Regierung, sodaß sich seine Geldsorgen etwas hoben. Johnson`s Ruhm ist zum Teil auf den Erfolg von Boswells Biographie zurückzuführen. Man muß jedoch wissen, daß Boswell Johnson erst getroffen hat, nachdem sich J. etabliert hatte. Deshalb ist Johnson in Boswells Buch eher als ruppige aber liebenswerte Person der oberen Kreise beschrieben, denn als der arme um alles kämpfende Schriftsteller, den er den größten Teil seines Lebens war.

First Edition of the first missionary voyage to the South Pacific. Most of the missionaries were settled on Tahiti, with several others landed at Tonga and the Marquesas. Troubles with the natives arose, and most of the missionaries were forced to seek refuge in Sydney, Australia, while three on Tonga were killed. The mission on Tahiti was re-established in 1815. In addition to Tahiti, Tonga, and the Marquesas, the work contains valuable accounts of the Fiji Islands, Tongatapu, the Gambier Islands, and the discovery of a new group of islands, named the 'Duff Group', among the Santa Cruz Islands. On the outward voyage, the expedition visited Rio de Janeiro, an engraved view of which is included among the plates. The work is also of Australian interest because of a passage mentioning escaped Botany Bay convicts, and the fact that some of the missionaries who fled to Australia eventually settled there and founded families important in Australian history.

        Mein Schreibetisch An Herrn G R P in D : Band 1 (von 2)

      Leipzig, bey Heinr. Gräff, 1799. - (1. Aufl.), Band 1 von 2. 8° (15.5x10), 1 Bl., 384 S., 2 Bl., mit gestochenem Frontispiz (C. Schule del.) und gestochenem TitelPorträt, etwas späterer marmor Pbd mit goldgepräg RSchild, Ecken minimalst bestossen, Nummer auf Vorsatz, Adels-Exlibris-Stempel verso Titelblatt (v.Böhl auf Cramon), schönes gepflegtes Exemplar, [= Sammlung der besten deutschen prosaischen Schriftsteller und Dichter; 57], In vorliegendem Spätwerk profilierte sich Marie Sophie von La Roche, geborene Gutermann (1731-1807) weniger als Schriftstellerin, denn als selbstbewusste Frau. Im Jahre 1799, als Napoleon die Macht in Frankreich an sich riss, eilte die nun fast 70jährige ein letztes Mal ihren Zeitgenossen voraus. Schon der Titel war ein Affront gegen die Konventionen, in einer Zeit, in der einer Frau eher 'Mein Nähr- opder Küchentisch' zugekommen wäre. Frappierender noch das Porträt mit Federkiel am Schreibtisch vor einem raumerfüllenden Bücherwand als Indiz ihrer großen Belesenheit. Mit ihrer Pose - schreibend und denkend, dokumentierte die Schriftstellerin ihren Anspruch als geistige Autorität. Dieses Altersbild als erhabene Schriftstellerin ist mit großer Gewissheit das erste seiner Art und war nur zum revolutionären Jahrhundertwechsel möglich. in der folgenden Restaurationszeit wäre dies undenkbar gewesen.- 'Mein Schreibetisch' ist signifikant, denn dort benennet Sophie in collagenartigen Texten, ähnlich einer Enzyklopädie, ihr breites Lese- und Bildungsrepertoire, anderen Frauen als Anregung empfohlen, darunter Werke von Marc Aurel, Plato, Hume und Kant, also keine verniedlichende 'Frauenzimmerlektüre'.

        [AUTOGRAPH LETTER, SIGNED, FROM JOHN TRUMBULL TO MR. JOHN GROOM, ASSESSOR AT THE COURTHOUSE OF THE PARISH OF ST. MARY BOURNE]

      [England], 1799. Old fold lines, else near fine. Letter sent in reply by Trumbull to a Mr. Green, regarding a notice he had received, presumably in relation to payment of taxes of some kind. The letter reads: "Sir, I take the liberty of returning to you the enclosed Notice, unaccompanied with any of the statements which it requires. For the following reasons - I am an American; and during two years and a half, I have resided in this Country, in the public Character of one of the Commissioners for carrying into execution the 7th Article of the Treaty of Amity Commerce and Navigation, subsisting between his Britannic Majesty and the United States of America. I have always considered that Character as giving to me, that immunity from taxes & from military services, which is enjoyed by Foreign Ministers; in this persuasion I have not, during that time, paid taxes or performed any military service, and I do now conceive myself to be equally free from this, and from any future, Demand, of this nature, as I have been from the Past. I am sir, your most obedient humble servant, Jno. Trumbull." As Trumbull states in the letter, during this time he is in England working for the Jay Treaty Commission, which was organized to settle commercial and frontier questions between the Americans and the British. Trumbull's autobiography skips over the years from 1799 to 1804, and none of the other sources give hints as to what the issue regarding this notice may have been. It is obvious, however, that Trumbull felt the contents of the notice most certainly did not apply to him, given his diplomatic immunity status. A very nice autograph letter in Trumbull's neat and legible hand. Hailed as the official painter of the Revolution, Trumbull studied painting and art in England and France. The youngest son of the governor of Connecticut, the elder John Trumbull very much wanted his son to go into law. Trumbull did study the law, but gladly joined the fight against the British when the Revolution broke out. He eventually served as Washington's second aide-de-camp, having been brought to the General's attention through some very accurate drawings he had made of British gun emplacements. He rose to the rank of colonel as a deputy adjutant-general, but resigned the commission he finally received because it was dated three months late, a slight his honor could not tolerate. He refused to return to the law, finding it quite distasteful, and chose instead to pursue his true passion, art, against his family's wishes. Though he was never particularly wealthy in this pursuit, he did achieve a certain amount of success in his own lifetime. Among his most famous works are those commissioned in 1817 by Congress to adorn the Capitol building: "The Surrender of General Burgoyne at Saratoga," "The Surrender of General Cornwallis at Yorktown," "The Declaration of Independence," and "The Resignation of General Washington.

        The four gospels, translated from the Greek.

      Philadelphia: Pr. by A. Bartram 4to. viii, xvi, 488 pp.; 196, [8] pp.. 1799 George Campbell (1719?-96) was a minister of the Church of Scotland, theologian, and principal of Marischal College. He wrote a number of theological works, including a defense of miracles in response to David Hume, and was noted for originality of argument as well as charity towards his opponents. This translation of the Gospels was first published in England in 1789; the work consists of a preface and preliminary dissertations, the actual translation, and the notes, with the whole being very scholarly, resorting frequently to the Greek in the dissertations and notes. Campbell's translation of the Gospels were first printed in the U.S. in 1796 and was the first privately accomplished translation of the Gospels printed in America. This is only the second edition printed in America. Publisher's brown leather, rebacked, board edges refurbished, original spine-label reused. Old library pressure-stamps and a bit of pencilling, stamped numberwith a (properly deaccessioned). Occasional light foxing and with some marginal waterstains. Overall, a rather nice copy.

        A block of wood from George Washington's coffin, obtained by stone mason John Struthers who designed and cut the late President's marble sarcophagus at Mount Vernon in 1837.

      [Mount Vernon], [1799]. 1" x .75" x .25". "A small block of wood, 1"" x .75"" x .25"" bearing a tiny slip of paper affixed to one side bearing an ink inscription, ""Piece of the coffin of Washington from John Struthers."" Typical light wear consistent with the piece's age. John Struthers (1786-1851) was a noted stonecutter, builder and architect born in Scotland who migrated to Philadelphia in 1816 where he began a close association with master carpenter William Strickland (1788-1854). The pair worked on several high-profile projects including the Second Bank of the United States (1824), the Philadelphia Exchange (1834), as well as the steeple on Independence Hall (1828), among other projects. In 1836, he offered to supply, at his own expense, a new sarcophagus for George Washington's remains, a task he completed the next year. The present piece would have been obtained with Struthers assisting in the transfer of Washington's remains to the marble sarcophagus where he presently lies. From the collection of Dr. Weldon E. Petz, a well-known and avid collector from Michigan. Offered with a letter of provenance. "

        The Architect and Builder's Miscellany, or Pocket Library: containing original picturesque designs in architecture, for cottages, farm, country, and town houses, public buildings, temples, green houses, bridges, lodges and gates for the entrances to parks and pleasure grounds, stables, monumental tombs, garden seats, &c

      London: Printed for J. Taylor, at the Architectural Library, 1799. Full Calf. Very Good. 8vo. 19 by 11.5 cm. 52 of the sixty plates have hand-coloring of building facades and other architectural features, with usually the lower half of the plate devoted to floor plans. The eight other plates are entirely floor plans of prior plates which are entirely given over to hand-colored renderings of buildings. The structures are varied, with the classical style of the day the most pronounced, but with whimsical touches of the incipient Romantic period surfacing in such things as the pleasure pavilions. A most beautiful, exquisite collection of plates and architectural drawings. Clean and tight within. The calf binding is scuffed, and starting along the joints.

      - Altkolorierter Kupferstich n. Robert de Vaugondy b. Società Calcografia in Venedig, dat. 1803, 48 x 54,5 Bibliographisch nicht nachweisbar! - Diese sehr seltene Karte gehört zu einem nie beendetem Projekt der "Società Calcografia", ein Zusammenschluß der beiden venezianischen Verleger des 18. Jahrhundert Antonio Zatta und Giuseppe Antonio Remondini. - Das Projekt ist nie beendet worden und die Karten in keiner uns bekannten Bibliographie aufgeführt. - Die Karte zeigt Asien zwischen Arabien und Bering See sowie Einzeichnungen der Routen der Schiffe "Felice" und der "Iphigneia (Efigenie)" nach Nordamerika im Jahre 1788 und nach China im Jahre 1788/89. - Unten links altkolorierte Titelkartusche. - Extrem seltener Einblattdruck! This very rare map belongs to a never finished project for the atlas of the so called Società Calcografia, a simple commercial trade realized by the two main Venetian publishers of the XVIII century, Antonio Zatta and Giuseppe Antonio Remondini. - The term Società Calcografica has been deduced from the map of the world, which is part of the collection and bears in the lower cartouche the French writing "à Venise Chez la Societè Chalcographique". As already stated, the project was never finished for no atlas containing these maps has never been listed in any bibliography. Very likely, then, the maps have been sold individually, or maybe as part of smaller, custom collections. The maps of the collection derive from Paolo and Francesco Santini’s plates, used by Remondini in his 1782/4 "Atlas Universelle" and from the plates of Antonio Zatta’s "Nuovo Atlante" published in 1796. - Santini’s maps have been beautifully enriched, using the system of small, masked plates which can be perceived through the platemarks on the paper, with great cartouches according to the classical style of Zatta and have been probably engraved by the members of his staff, Pasquali, Zuliani and Pitteri. - The cartouches bear very often historical descriptions and maybe the maps have been realized to depict the great geographic changes of the peninsula during the Napoleonic period. - In our opinion, the two publishers worked together to the realization of the project until Antonio Zatta died (1804), and the complete atlas was never finished because Giuseppe Antonio Remondini also died in 1811.
