        Sermons; in which are explained and enforced the religious, moral, and political virtues of Freemasonry. Preached upon several occasions, before the Provincial Grand Officers, and other brethren, in the counties of Kent and Essex. Dedicated, by permission, to William Perfect, Esq. P.G.M. for the county of Kent

      [Deptford, Kent] Printed for the author, (by J. Delahoy, Deptford-Bridge,) and to be had at the Rectory House, Deptford, as above, and of Crosby and Letterman ...... London. n.d. [1799]. 8vo., engraved portrait frontispiece, xxiii + (1) + 306pp., including a list of subscribers, and with an additional printed notice* tipped in, contemporary tree calf, neatly rebacked preserving the original label. A very good copy with the ownership signature of John Ward of New Road Lincoln> on verso of first sectional title-page. First collected edition: scarce. Not in Watkins [International Masonic Collection, 1723-2011>] which has only an 1848 reprint (#968]. Rev. Jethro Inwood, B.A. was Provincial Grand Chaplain for the county of Kent and curate of St. Paul's Church, Deptford. William Perfect (1731/2-1809), a physician specialising in the treatment of the insane, had a medical practice at West Malling in Kent. 'Grief at the loss of Elizabeth (his wife) seems to have resulted in Perfect's becoming a freemason about 1765, and it was in freemasonry that he obtained his greatest social distinctions. He was promoted to the office of provincial grand orator in 1787, and eight years later became provincial grand master of the county of Kent, an office which he retained until his death.' [Shirley Burgoyne Black in ODNB]. * The printed notice, dated Deptford April 1799, apologises for the printing delay ('occasioned by the slow manner in which the names of subscribers came to hand; not venturing to hazard a large impression in the first instance'), and points out that there are now eleven sermons, not ten as originally promised.

        Creation

      1799. HAYDN, Joseph.Die Schoepfung ein Oratorium [The Creation an Oratorio].Vienna: T. Mollo, [1799].First edition of ?"The Creation,?" preceding Haydn?'s authorized editions of the score by one year, fully engraved and in a contemporary binding.The first edition of the vocal score of Haydn?'s greatest oratorio was this unauthorized publication, predating the composer?'s own editions of the full score and the vocal score by one year. Haydn?'s oratorio The Creation ?"is a masterwork in the special sense that it has no weak point, nothing that could be changed or omitted?" (New Grove). ?"The text, combining parts of Genesis and Milton?'s Paradise Lost, had originally been prepared by Liddell for Handel. Only because Handel had turned it down was it eventually brought to the attention of Haydn… Haydn seized upon it, for he had always nursed the ambition to write an oratorio in the Handel manner and the text provided him with the necessary stimulus?" (Cross). Haydn feared that the oratorio ?"might be too unusual for his Viennese audiences, but in fact it was an unprecedented success… Perhaps no other piece of great music has ever enjoyed such immediate and universal acceptance.?" ?"Haydn?'s fresh and charming pictures of the wonders of the creation, from the naïve but always impressive ?'And there was LIGHT?' to the glimpses of the leaping tiger and the creeping worm… The two instrumental preludes, including the superbly controlled ?'Representation of Chaos,?' are masterly?" (New Grove).Hoboken xxi.2, 41. RISM, H4634. Fuld, 271. Weinmann (Mollo), 35.Interior generally clean. Some wear and minor worming to spine of contemporary binding. An excellent copy. Rare.

Upper joint split of 10 cm. Back insolated. Rubbed together. Bites on the first page of text. Astronomical treatise, though still general since Laplace give momentum in Celestial Mechanics in five volumes, the exposure of the world system is determinative of the final advent of mathematics in the field of astronomy . Laplace shows especially his philosophical position, that of an absolute determinism. "We must therefore consider the present state of the universe as the effect of its previous state and as the cause that will follow."

Traité d'astronomie, bien qu'encore généraliste, puisque Laplace en donnera l'ampleur dans La Mécanique céleste en cinq volumes, l'exposition du système du monde est déterminant quant à l'avènement définitif des mathématiques dans le champ de l'astronomie. Laplace y démontre surtout sa position philosophique, celle d'un déterminisme absolu. "Nous devons donc envisager l'état présent de l'univers comme l'effet de son état antérieur et comme la cause de celui qui va suivre." Les mathématiques deviennent l'outil privilégié pour sonder ce qu'il est impossible de connaître et voir, comme l'hypothèse des trous noirs qu'aura Laplace.

Stockdale, 1799. / 2nd edition - 1799 Isaac Weld Travels Through US & Canada Mount Vernon Colonial Americana MAPS Incredibly Illustrated with 16 BEAUTIFUL Engravings Isaac Weld (1774–1856) was an Irish topographical writer, explorer, and artist. In 1795 he sailed to Philadelphia from Dublin and spent two years travelling in the United States and Canada. He visited Monticello and Mount Vernon and met George Washington and Thomas Jefferson. He journeyed to the United States and Canada partly as an adventure and partly as research into suitable countries for the Irish to emigrate to – ".any part of those territories might be looked forward to as an eligible and agreeable place of abode". He travelled on horseback, by coach and by canoe in Canada with local native guides. He returned in 1797 ".without entertaining the slightest wish to revisit it." He found the Americans to be obsessed with material things and preferred Canada. His published Travels (1799) quickly went into three editions and was translated into French, German, and Dutch. We find this same 2nd edition for sale elsewhere for $1,925. The second edition was published the same year as the 1st, just shortly after the initial success of the first edition.

On Washington, DC, he wrote "If the affairs of the United States go on as rapidly as they have done, it will become the grand emporium of the West, and rival in magnitude and splendour the cities of the whole world."

Mycket ovanlig utgåva av ouverturen till Æneas i Karthago eller Dido och Æneas. Den publicerades först för pianoforte som bilaga till Musikaliskt tidsfördrif 1791.

De svenska nationalsångerna av Ferdinand Ries innehåller bl.a. "Waggvisa", "Skånsk bond-dans", "Qvarndansen". Den är utgiven som opus 52. Ries uppehöll sig en period år 1813 i Sverige, då han efter en tid i Ryssland flytt därifrån undan Napoleons anfall. Han reste dock strax vidare till London. Under vistelsen i Sverige uppträdde han bl.a. med J. F. Berwald. Carl Schwencke (1797-1864) var en tysk tonsättare och pianist, som under flera perioder under 1820-talet var verksam i Sverige. Han skrev många variationer på kända melodier, både från folkvisor och operor

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. Another later edition on laid paper with different pagination (4 p.l., c, 395, [1]blank, [12]). was published the same year. Cox II p. 307. Ferguson 301. Hill p. 184.

The Natural History of British Shells, including figures and descriptions of all the species hitherto discovered in Great Britain, systematically arranged in the Linneaen Manner, with scientific and general observations on each. London: Printed for the author and for F. and C. Rivington, 1799-1802.Volumes 1-3 and part of volume 4 only (of five). Octavo (9 1/8 x 5 5/8 inches; 231 x 144 mm.). Title-pages, text and indexes to the first three volumes. Title-page and text up to plate 116 only in volume four. 113 (of 144) engraved plates only, all colored by hand in fine bright colors. Contemporary quarter olive green calf over marbled boards, smooth spines decoratively tooled in gilt, red morocco labels lettered in gilt, marbled end-papers. Spines faded, headcaps a little worn. A very good collection of 113 hand-colored plates from this important work on British shells.The work was originally issued in sixty parts, each with three plates, having descriptive text to each plate.Edward Donovan (1768-1837) was the founder of the London Museum and Institute of Natural History, which housed his large natural history collection. Born in Cork, Ireland, Donovan was an avid collector of natural history specimens purchased mainly at auctions of specimens from voyages of exploration. He was a Fellow of the Linnean Society and the Wernerian Natural History Society which gave him access to the best collections and libraries in London. It was quite common for private collectors to open small public museums, and in 1807 he founded the London Museum and Institute of Natural History. This exhibited several hundred cases of world birds, mammals, reptiles, fish, molluscs, insects, corals and other invertebrates and botanical specimens and other exotica alongside his British collections. Donovan was, at first, the very successful author of a number of natural history titles, including Natural History of British Birds (1792-97), Natural History of British Insects (1792-1813), Natural History of British Fishes (1802-08), Natural History of British Shells (1799-1804). He also wrote articles on Conchology, Entomology etc., made drawings and arranged the natural history plates in Rees's Cyclopædia and undertook commissions for private albums of his botanical artwork.Nissen ZBI, 1147.

        Royal Navy Manuscript Book of Signals and Instructions, Circa 1800

      Small 4to. Unpaginated. 105 pages of manuscript, many with watercolor drawings of flags and pennants. This manuscript is based on printed Royal Navy signal books which promulgated signaling systems devised in the late 1700s by tacticians such as Howe and Kempenfelt. According to the Maritime Museum at Greenwich, these manuscript signal books ?"are copies kept by officers who were not issued with a printed signal book, and preferred their own copy for easy reference; they are therefore usually pocket size. This practice was forbidden because of the danger of the code falling into enemy hands. However, there are a number of these in the collection and they often contain additional information, such as orders of battle and sailing, keys to both the British and French systems of coastal signals, pendant lists, etc. Many are finely executed and some are illustrated.?" The first seven pages of this signal book illustrate flags and other types of signals, and explain the signaling system in use. Essentially, single flags displayed on various parts of the ship gave the key by which later messages were to be understood. They also transmitted urgent, simple messages such as "Enemy in Sight." Flags representing numbers were used to transmit two and three digit numerical signals. This section is followed by about sixty pages of "Significations" which give the meanings of the signals, by number, and correlate these signals with the appropriate page and article of the Navy's printed "Instructions." This was a sophisticated signaling system capable of transmitting complex messages very efficiently. This section is followed by shorter sections illustrating pendant signals and their significations, fog signals, night signals and "Private Ship Signals to the Admiral." The book is undated, but the paper is watermarked 1799 and the ships named (on a single fold out sheet) seem to date from the period of the Napoleonic Wars and the War of 1812. Bound in sailcloth over boards. Some of the pages are grubby from use, but all are legible and in good repair. There are about a dozen pages of colored flag illustrations.

        Tracts on the subject of an Union, between Great Britain and Ireland

      Dublin: sold by J. Milliken. 1799-1800. 112 pamphlets and tracts in 9 vols., 8vo., with individual paginations and signatures, all volumes except one complete with volume-specific title-pages (listing the pamphlets in each volume), this leaf missing from vol.III, however, all volumes bound in contemporary uniform half calf over marbled boards, flat spine with gilt line and contrasting red and green labels lettered in gilt. A fine set. Goldsmiths 17557 (which lists all the tracts contained here, albeit sometimes bound up in differing sequences). Complete sets seem to be surprisingly rare. The N.L. Ireland has a set. Bradshaw (8652) had vol.8 only. ESTC seems to locate no other complete sets. A comprehensive collection of separately published tracts and speeches, reissued with a general title-page. Surely an exhaustive archive of material illustrating the controversial nature of William Pitt's progress towards a legislative union of England and Ireland. (Pitt's promise to move quickly towards Catholic Emancipation would actually not happen until 1829). The 1798 Irish rebellion, alongside the bellicose noises of Napoleon Bonaparte set against a background of radical and republican movements in Britain, had combined to motivate Pitt to find a constitutional solution. The Bill for the Union of Great Britain and Ireland was passed in July 1800. It enacted: 1. That there should be one Parliament for the United Kingdom. 2. That 4 Bishops, 23 temporal Peers, and 100 Commoners should sit for Ireland in that Parliament. 3. That free trade should be established between the two countries. The Emancipation question remained unresolved, however, in no small part due to the strong objection to such a measure by the King himself, the royal veto causing Pitt to resign his office. The Act of Union came into force on the first day of the new century.

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

        UNITED STATES TO PAUL PINKHAM DR. FOR MATERIALS AND LABOUR IN REPAIRING THE LIGHT HOUSE DWELLING HOUSE AND BUILDING A BARN AT NANTUCKET 1797 [manuscript title]

      Nantucket, Ma. Feb. 20, 1799.. [1]p. on a folio sheet, 11 3/4 x 7 1/4 inches. Old folds. A touch of foxing. Very good. Contemporary manuscript evidence of the reconstruction and maintenance of the main lighthouse on Nantucket, called the Great Point Lighthouse, or simply the Nantucket Lighthouse. The light sits at the end of a seven-mile long strip of land and overlooks Nantucket Sound and the Atlantic Ocean, an area that by the end of the 18th century was one of the busiest shipping channels on the East Coast. An iconic lighthouse in an important location, it continues in operation to this day. The Nantucket lighthouse was built in 1784 (its construction delayed several years by the American Revolution), and Paul Pinkham, a former whaler and the creator of an important chart of the shoals of Nantucket and Vineyards Sounds, was made the first lighthouse keeper. Initially there was no keeper's house and Pinkham had to walk several miles each day to reach the lighthouse. This situation was rectified in the late 1790s when Pinkham was authorized to build a house and barn at the lighthouse, and to improve the structure itself. The present document is Pinkham's bill for the work he did on site in 1797, apparently written in his hand. The total bill comes to $150.37, and includes reimbursement for Pinkham's labor, as well as money spent on twenty panes of glass, paint, barn shingles, hinges, "freighting the lumber from town," carpenter's work, and for other expenses. The bulk of the work was done in June 1797, and Pinkham was reimbursed $100 by Captain Alexander Gardner that December. As of February 20, 1799, according to a note at the bottom of the invoice, Pinkham was still owed $50.37. He has signed the document as "Keeper of the Light House Nantucket." An excellent piece of Nantucket lighthouse history, quite displayable.

        A missionary voyage to the southern Pacific Ocean, performed in the years 1796, 1797, 1798, in the ship Duff, commanded by Captain James Wilson. Compiled from journals of the officers and the missionaries; and illustrated with maps, charts, and views

      London: Pr. by S. Gosnell for T. Chapman 4to (28.5 cm, 11.25"). [12], c, 420, [12] pp.; 7 fold. maps, 6 plts.. 1799 First edition. This account of a mission to Polynesia and Tahiti (funded by the London Missionary Society) supplies, it must be said, much more by way of the missionary travellers' interested observations of lands and people's exotic to them than it does reports of the proselytizations they pursued; it was compiled by chief mate William Wilson from his own journals and those of Captain James Wilson. Dr. Thomas Haweis, co-founder of the London Missionary Society, edited the work and the Rev. Samuel Greatheed provided (anonymously) the "Preliminary discourse; containing a geographical and historical account of the islands where missionaries have settled, and of others with which they are connected." The Hill catalogue says, "The narrative is fresh, although sometimes naive, and provides a glimpse of everyday life on the islands that the mariner or naturalist didn't consider worth reporting." There is a most interesting Appendix, also, canvassing everything from native dress to houses to dances to cookery to canoes to marriage and the place of women to funeral customs — not forgetting human sacrifice and sports. The volume is illustrated with six plates and seven oversized, folding maps, and includes an extensive list of subscribers. An inferior, less expensive edition appeared in the same year, printed by Gillet; the present example is sometimes identified as the Gosnell edition to distinguish it from the Gillet production. Contemporary reverse sheep, framed and panelled in blind, spine with leather title-label; leather peeling at extremities, front joint repaired and back one starting from head, spine with label rubbed and two compartments discolored. Hinges (inside) reinforced with cloth tape; front free endpaper lacking. Front pastedown with institutional bookplates; dedication leaf with pressure-stamp in upper margin and rubber-stamped numeral in lower margin. Title-page and dedication with offsetting to margins; title-page with small hole not touching text. First map foxed, with tears along two folds; sixth map with jagged tear along one inner corner; other maps lightly foxed. Occasional stray small spots of staining and some offsetting from plates onto opposing pages; a few page edges slightly ragged. In sum, in fact, a sound, clean, and pleasant volume.

[Amen!] ***  This voyage was the first organized effort by England to send missionaries to the South Seas.  Twenty-five of them established a settlement on Tahiti, but due to continual civil strife, had to flee to Australia.  They eventually returned in 1815.  This account contains much valuable information on the native peoples and cultures of Tahiti, the Fijis, the Marquesas, and other islands.  Also of note was the discovery of several previously unknown islands. ***  With six (6) plates of views, two (2) full-page maps, and five (5) folding maps.  All appear to be copperplate engravings.  The maps show the track of the voyage, Tahiti, the Marquesas, Gambier Islands, island and harbor of Tongataboo, and the Duff's island group. ***  Bound in contemporary brown full leather.  The spine has four gilt rules and a black leather label with gilt lettering.  The covers have moderate wear and soil with the front lower corner bumped.  The joints are cracked but still holding firmly.  The spine has a bit of cracking in the leather towards the bottom, and a hole slightly smaller than a dime.  The contents are clean and complete in a good binding.  Two of the maps have a separation and/or tear at bottom of fold, but nothing serious.  Some of the plates have a little light foxing. ***  11.5 inches tall by 9.5 inches
