[Pennsylvania. General Assembly. Senate]
[Philadelphia]: Printed by Thomas & Samuel F. Bradford, No. 8, South Front Street, 1799. First edition. Broadsheet. Small tears at margins and folds, wear, with some minor loss of a few words, one marginal burn mark, small ink drawing, marks, and notation on rear blank areas, otherwise still very good.. [2] pp. For Pennsylvania, development of the western part of the state was crucial for its long term defense and growth, and for western markets through the great lakes, as is noted in the preamble to this act: "Whereas a road has, under the direction of the legislature, been in part laid out from Reading to Presque Isle. And whereas it is considered that opening and improving said road would be greatly conducive to the interests of the community, by opening a communication with the northwestern parts of the state, and would much facilitate an intercourse with Lake Erie. Therefore:" The first road out west in Erie County was to protect the frontiers from the British and Indians. As McKnigh notes in his "A Pioneer Outline History of Northwestern Pennsylvania" (p.182): "Guards from the militia were a necessity for their trains. Guards were also a necessity for the road surveyors and road-makers. A body of about fifty militia was the usual number, and sometimes these soldiers would do some work as well as guard the road-makers.... In 1794 the great problem was a thoroughfare from the east to the northwest. The defense of the western portion of the State from Indians required the State and the national authorities to be constantly on the alert. On the 28th of February, 1794, t … [Click Below for Full Description]

JACKSON, John
London T. Cadell. First edition, 8vo., xvi, 277pp., 2 pages of advertisments at end, 5 engraved plates and a folding map, contemporary half calf, marbled boards, rebacked preserving spine, occasional light browning, an excellent copy. "Jackson went to India on private business, visiting Ceylon and the Malabar coast while there. He travelled out by ship but took the overland route home. On 4 May 1797 he left Bombay by country ship for Basrah. He proceeded via the Euphrates and Tigris to Baghdad, and thence travelled through Kurdistan, Armorica, Anatolia, Bulgaria, Wallachia, and Transylvania, reaching Hamburg on 28 October of the same year. Under the title Journey from India towards England (1799) he published an account of his travels in which he showed that the use of the route he followed was practicable all the year round. Jackson's narrative of his journey is straightforward in style, with daily entries describing his party's progress, and observations on the people and places they encountered. Although he advocated greater use of the overland route, he conceded that it was only for the physically hardy, and his description made it clear that the route was potentially dangerous. He advised on how to seek help from the local people and how to travel inconspicuously. Jackson showed himself both curious and flexible in adopting local habits of dress, of wearing beard and moustache, and of eating, drinking, and smoking. The reviewer in the Gentleman's Magazine described the Journey warmly as 'a very useful and instructive guide' (1st ser, 70, 1800, 237–9)." (ODNB). [Attribu … [Click Below for Full Description]

Genlis, Madame De.
Hambourg: Chez Pierre Chateauneuf, Librarie and Londres: Chez L'Homme, Libraire. 1799. First edition, Dedicated to Lady Edward Fitz-Gerald, unadopted daughter (actually natural) married to Lord Edward Fitz-Gerald, 8vo., pp: xvi,[1]-144, with an engraved frontispiece & folding sheet of music at end, light foxing & browning to the sheet music & endpapers, full mottled calf, with gilt rule to boards, spine with red leather title label, lightly worn, rubbed & marked, otherwise sound & very good condition. The rare first issue of this collection of poems loosely derived from botanical portraits. The work was written and published during Mme de Genlis' exile in Hamburg (although she was sympathetic to the revolution, and was later to return to France with the favour of Napoleon). She was an accomplished educationalist and botanist. Madame de Genlis was born of a noble Burgundian family, at the chateau of Champercy in Issy-l'Eveque, Saone-et-Loire. In 1789 Madame de Genlis showed herself favourable to the French Revolution, but the fall of the Girondins in 1793 compelled her to take refuge in Switzerland along with her pupil Mademoiselle d'Orleans. In 1794 Madame de Genlis fixed her residence at Berlin, but having been expelled by the orders of Frederick William II of Prussia, she afterwards settled in Hamburg, where she supported herself for some years by writing and painting.

Ink ownership inscription on leading f.e.p. verso of vol. III reading 'Williams, Highcliff.'ESTC T143950, BL, Cambridge, Oxford only in UK; Newberry, UCLA, Yale only in N. America. FIRST ENGLISH EDITION. Genlis, 1746-1830, was a French author and educator who was the boyhood tutor of King Louis Philippe I. She was well-known for her innovative education techniques including practical botany walks, using lantern slides during lessons, and putting on morality plays. During her lifetime she wrote nearly 80 works, many for children and mostly of a moral nature. According to one contemporary reviewer, Rash Vows is 'rather a whimsical performance, and has less ingenuity of contrivance , than usually distinguishes the work of this author' (The British Critic and Quarterly Theological Review, vol. 14, 1799). In the 'Dedicatory Epistle' of the novel, Genlis writes that this novel is 'the most moral Romance in our language; perhaps the only one that young people, and even those whose education is far advanced, may be permitted to read'. Interestingly, Rash Vows is addressed to Lady Edward Fitzgerald and Mrs Henrietta Matthieson. Lady Edward - known as Pamela - was described as Genlis&a … [Click Below for Full Description]

BROSSES (Charles de)
Paris, Ponthieu, An VII (1799). - 3 tomes en 1 volume in-8. (2ff.blancs). VIII. 415pp. + 2ff. 455pp. + 2ff. 400pp. Demi-veau, dos lisse orné (Reliure de l'époque, charnière supérieure restaurée). Edition Originale publiée par Sérieys sur le manuscrit de l'auteur, de ces lettres que Stendhal admirait et qui n'étaient destinées à l'origine qu'à un petit cercle d'amis choisis. Charles de Brosses (1709-1777), président du Parlement de Dijon, esprit brillant et cultivé, amateur de bonne chère et bon vivant, voyagea en Italie en 1739 et 1740. Ces lettres qui furent écrites de mémoire plusieurs années après son retour en France, constituent un tour de force littéraire et l'un des témoignages les plus intéressants laissés sur l'Italie par un écrivain français. "Cet exercice de style d’une composition à froid et de seconde main n’exclut pas cependant la chaleur d’une émotion restée entière, et le plaisir qu’elle communique est le même. Le principe est simple: une étape, des lieux, une lettre. Mais un même lieu peut être raconté à différents destinataires. Il en résulte des effets polyphoniques intéressants, car de Brosses s’adresse à chacun de manière différente: avec le 'gros Blancey', amateur de plaisirs simples, de bons mots et de jolies femmes, le ton sera égrillard et le Président se révélera être un franc libertin. ( ) Les lettres à M.de Quentin, en revanche, sont d’une écriture plus austère et plus cultivée: les palais, les lieux de culte sont soigneusement recensés, et la profusion d’objets d’art ainsi décrits tourne au catalogue.

ATLAS des ANCIENS PLANS de PARIS & VERNIQUET (Edme).
[Paris, Imprimerie Nationale, 1799-1880]. En six feuilles pouvant former un plan d'environ 1,41 x 1,65 m. Plan monumental de Paris par Verniquet, reproduit en héliogravure et réduit au 1/3 sur papier fort, publié en 1880 dans l'Atlas des anciens plans de Paris, important atlas consacré aux plans de Paris ayant marqué l'histoire de la topographie de la ville entre 1530 et 1799. L'édition originale de ce plan fut publiée en 1799. De tous les plans du XVIIIème siècle, celui de l'architecte Edme Verniquet est le seul qui offre une vue mathématiquement exacte de la capitale, et en fait l'un des plus célèbres plans de l'histoire de la cartographie parisienne. C'est le premier plan géométral de Paris fondé sur des calculs trigonométriques, et le premier à représenter fidèlement le tracé des «rues, places publiques, marchés, quais et culs-de-sac» et les plans des édifices publics ou privés. Le plan de Verniquet, le dernier dressé au XVIIIème siècle, servit de fond topographique à la plupart des plans du XIXème siècle. L'architecte Edme Verniquet (1727-1804) débute sa carrière en Bourgogne, à la suite de son père, avant d'être appelé à Paris par Buffon (1772) qui le charge de travaux d'agrandissement sur les bâtiments du Jardin des Plantes. En 1774, il achète l'une des quatre charges de commissaire général de la voirie près le bureau des finances de Paris et commence, dès 1775 et à ses frais, les relevés nécessaires pour établir un plan des rues de Paris. De privé, le projet devient public ; il emploiera jusqu'à 60 ingénieurs et plus de 80 aides pour les opérations de relevé trigono … [Click Below for Full Description]

TYPE SPECIMENS. FRY, STEELE, AND CO.
London: Printed by T. Rickaby, 1799. Small 4to (250 x 155 mm), 130 leaves including title and two advertisement leaves, all printed on rectos only, title vignette, printed on thick paper stock, 'Lepard' watermark, occasional spotting and turned corners, cont. calf, rubbed, joints cracked, black morocco spine label. The Fry's were a Bristol family, and Joseph Fry (1728-87) established the foundry at Bristol in 1764, in partnership with William Pine and Isaac Moore as manager and type-designer. By 1766 the foundry had moved to London, with Moore retiring in 1776 and Pine shortly after. In 1782 Fry took his sons Edmund (especially interested in exotic founts) and Henry into partnership, and made considerable purchases of Greeks and Orientals at the sale of James' foundry. Joseph retired in 1787 and in 1794 Isaac Steele joined as partner until 1808, when Edmund Fry was left in sloe control until he admitted his son to partnership. In 1829 the foundry was acquired by William Thorowgood. A very good copy of this extremely rare specimen. Following an introduction, the specimens proceed from Ten line Pica to Diamond: 'the smallest Letter in the World. It gets in considerably more than the famous Dutch Diamond.' There are type in Hebrew and Greek, ornamental, Blacks, Exotics, Ships, Bands, frames, & decorative pieces composed of flowers continuing to a priced section of cast ornaments. This edition not listed by ESTC, Berry & Johnson and Mosley both cite the St. Bride copy only. Berry & Johnson, p. 46; Mosley, 122.

WALDSTEIN, F. DE PAULA ADAM GRAF VON & P. KITAIBEL.
Vienna, Matthias Andreas Schmidt, (1799-) 1802-1812. 3 volumes. Folio (488 x 345mm). pp. (4), xxxii, 1-104; (2), xxxii, 105-221, (1); (2), 223-310, (2, index), with large sepia aquatint view at beginning of preface to vol I and 280 beautifully handcoloured engraved plates of which 16 folding. Contemporary marbled green boards with 2 red gilt lettered labels. A fine, uncut and unusually fresh copy of the first (and only) edition of this monumental flora of Hungary and adjacent territories, including Croatia, with splendid plates in the Viennese 'Jacquin' style. The text is by Paul Kitaibel (1757-1817), professor of botany at the University of Pest. 'He spent much of his career roaming Hungary and collecting botanical, zoological, and mineralogical specimens as well as folklore. His collections of botanical and mineralogical specimens formed the basis for the natural history collection in the Hungarian National Museum' (Johnston). The work was financed by Count Franz Waldstein (1759-1823), an Austrian military leader who fought against the Turks and North African states as a Maltese knight and in the Austrian-Turkish war and the Prussian campaign. From 1789 he devoted himself to botany, travelling with Kitaibel through Hungary collecting plants, interspersed with military service. His herbarium is in Prague. The aquatint view is signed by Hirscher. The plates are engraved by Karl Schutz after drawings by his son Johann.

PAUPERISMO (-)
Paris, Henri Agasse (poi Agasse, Heinrich, Treuttel & Wurtz), an VII de la République (1799) - An XII (1804). 39 parti con numerazione autonoma, riunite in 15 voll. in-8° (20 x 13), ciascun volume di ca. 350 pp. in media, con numerose tabelle sinottiche f.t. Bella leg. piena pelle coeva con cornicetta in oro ai piatti, dorsi fittamenti ornati con titoli e fregi in oro a motivi geometrici di gusto neoclassico. Ottimo esemplare.(6438). Poderosa raccolta, unica nel suo genere a livello europeo, contenente saggi e studi sul pauperismo e sulle maggiori istituzioni "caritatevoli", diffuse soprattutto in Gran Bretagna e in Germania, realizzate negli ultimo decenni del XVIII secolo, dalle "work houses" agli stabilimenti penitenziari, dalle colonie agricole agli orfanotrofi e alle case per i minori, per sopperire alle necessità dei ceti più poveri delle campagne e delle città nel delicato passaggio verso la prima rivoluzione industriale. Il personaggio che si assunse il faticoso compito di raccogliere, tradurre e pubblicare i testi, fu Adrien Cyprien Duquesnoy (1759-1808), avvocato della Mosella, deputato agli Stati Generali e amico di Mirabeau, poi membro dell'Assemblea Nazionale, arrestato come sospetto durante il Terrore; dopo il 18 Brumaio, lavorò al Ministero degli Interni e divenne infine Sindaco del "Xème Arrondissement" di Parigi. In tale veste si occupò di assistenza ai sordomuti e di amministrazione degli ospizi di carità; poi, caduto in disgrazia per uno "sgarbo" fatto a Napoleone (la mancata comunicazione a questi delle nozze di Luciano Bonaparte), in preda a una grave d … [Click Below for Full Description]

WELD, Isaac (1774-1856)
Imprimerie de Munier, chez Lepetit Jeune, 1799. 3 volumi in 8vo (211x132 mm). vii, [5]-321, [3] p., [1] grande cartina ripiegata del Canada e [6] tavole; [4], 344 p. e [4] tavole; [4], 294 p. [mancante l'ultima carta, bianca] e [2] tavole. Volumi legati in brossura coeva con tassello al dorso. Qualche lieve rossore, ma buona copia con carte consistenti e ancora in barbe. Prima edizione francese. Resoconto del viaggio compiuto dal giovane Isaac Weld, che trascorse più di due anni in Nord America per studiare le condizioni per una possibile immigrazione massiva irlandese. Osservò il territorio nordamericano compreso tra il fiume San Lorenzo a nord, la Virginia a sud e Detroit a ovest, muovendosi con i mezzi più disparati (a cavallo, a piedi, in canoa, in battello e in calesse). Incontrò una popolazione quantomai variegata, e conobbe George Washington e Thomas Jefferson. Il suo racconto è una testimonianza di grande interesse per la diversità dei temi trattati e per il giudizio dato alle due regioni osservate: severo per gli Stati Uniti e i suoi abitanti, avidi e violenti; più accondiscendente per il Canada, saggiamente governato e ancora abitato per lo più da francofoni.Boucher de la Richarderie VI, p. 43-54.
