        Bowles's New One-sheet Map of the Independent States of Virginia, Maryland, Delaware, Pensylvania [sic.], New Jersey. New York, Connecticut, Rhode Island. &c. comprehending also the habitations & hunting countries of the confederate Indians

      London: printed for the Proprietors Bowles & Carver, 1800. Copper-engraved map, with full original colour, overall in very good condition. A rare late issue of an important map by `the leading American geographer of his day' (Stephenson & McKee) This 'landmark map'(op.cit.) was first published in 1755 with the title A general Map of the Middle British Colonies in America. It was available either as a separate publication or bound into Evans' Geographical, Historical, Political. Philosophical and Mechanical Essays. The First Containing an Analysis of a General Map of the Middle British Colonies in America (Philadelphia: Benjamin Franklin and David Hall, 1755). `Evans was the leading American geographer of his day. He incorporated into his map a wealth of geographical information not previously available on other maps, especially for the Ohio country. Extending from Quebec to Virginia and from the Atlantic coast to the Ohio River, his map was published in numerous authorized and pirated editions throughout the remainder of the eighteenth century' (op.cit.). The Bowles piracy was one of the longest lived versions: John Bowles first issued a version of Evans' map in about 1760 and continued to do so for the rest of the century with alterations to the imprint and occasional changes of title. The present example shows the Bowles piracy in its final form, and appears to be considerably rarer than a number of the earlier issues: no copies of this issue are listed as having sold at auction in the past thirty years.

        An original drawing with a Royal Navy warship firing her cannon out to sea, titled 'Pigeon Island from the Town of Gros Islet,' St. Lucia

      [St. Lucia, 1800. Pen, ink and wash drawing within an ink-ruled border, titled in the margin beneath in ink in a contemporary hand. Image size: 6 5/8 x 9 7/8 inches; sheet size: 7 5/8 x 10 5/8 inches. A fine early view recalling St. Lucia's turbulent past. The view includes a British ship-of-war in the foreground, with Pigeon Island behind, with Fort Rodney topping the smaller of the two peaks. The island was used as a look-out post to keep an eye on the French naval base on Martinique to the north. The image also includes two large ships in the background and these, combined with the fact that the ship in the foreground has just fired a broadside, may mean that this image was intended to act as a record of one of the many encounters that took place before Britain finally took control of St. Lucia in 1814.

        La Corbeille de Fruits

      Paris: Tessari et Co, 1800. Engravings, printed in colours and finished by hand, by Duthé, after 'Huet fils'. A beautifully composed image recalling the bounty that the Fall brings, after an original by one of the three sons of Jean-Baptistse Huet The beautifully observed wicker-work basket bulges with the fruits of the harvest, their weight has made the container unsteady and some of the contents have spilled out onto the slate shelf on which this veritable cornucopia rests. A snail and a hornet investigate: apples, pears, grapes, chestnuts, cherries, tomatoes, white currents and a pomegranate are all available. This highly decorative image is from an original by 'Huet fils' (i.e. 'Huet son'). This narrows the field to three artists, all members of the highly talented French family whose members were active between about 1740 and 1830. Jean-Baptiste Huet (1745-1811) had three sons, all of whom are possible candidates: Nicolas Huet II, born in 1770, who flourished as an artist between about 1788 and 1827, François Huet, born 1772 and died in London in 1813 and finally, Jean-Baptiste Huet II who was born in Paris on 29 December 1772. Because of the use of 'fils' Jean-Baptiste the second is the most likely candidate. Until his father's death the easiest way to differentiate the two artists of the same name would have been to call the younger 'the son'.

        Wood-Cock Shooting

      London: Colnagi, 1800. Aquatint, printed in colours and finished by hand, by Robert Dodd. Backed to restore losses to margin and to repair large tear in the upper right portion of the print, and to repair tear in bottom margin. A wonderful, rustic English shooting scene Julius Cæsar Ibbetson "was apprenticed to John Fletcher, a ship-painter at Hull. Ibbetson attracted public attention by his designs for ship decoration and by some scenery painted for the Hull Theatre, and his success encouraged him to seek his fortune in London in 1777. He was forced at first to work for Mr. Clarke, a picture dealer in Leicester Fields, but was able at the same time to acquire a thorough acquaintance with the works and methods of Dutch artists, besides learning all the tricks of the trade... In 1780 he married... In 1785 he exhibited at the Royal Academy A View of Northfleet, and continued to exhibit during succeeding years. Becoming acquainted with Captain William Baillie and others, he was introduced into good society, and was patronised by the nobility. In 1788 he accepted a post in Colonel Cathcart's embassy to China. Cathcart, however, died at Java during the voyage, and Ibbetson returned to England. He made many drawings during the voyage, and obtained nautical experience, which he afterwards turned to account in his pictures, but was not able to obtain any remuneration on his return... He sought relief from his misery in dissipation and convivial society, after the example of his friend, George Morland... This only led to further embarrassments, and in 1798 he quitted London for Liverpool to escape his creditors. Ibbetson lived quietly for some time near Ambleside in Westmoreland, visiting Scotland in 1800... A sign painted by Ibbetson for an inn at Troutbeck, near Ambleside, had some notoriety... He suffered further pecuniary losses through the defalcations of a friend, but the number of his commissions now enabled him to free himself to some extent from debt. At the invitation of one of his chief patrons, Mr. William Danby of Swinton Park, Ibbetson settled near that place in Masham, Yorkshire. Here he spent the remainder of his days... As a painter in oil of cattle and pigs Ibbetson has hardly been excelled in England, even by Morland... In his landscape-painting Ibbetson somewhat resembled Richard Wilson, R.A. He also painted small portraits in a neat and rapid manner. His paintings of animals were much prized, especially in Yorkshire, where they are often to be met with in private houses. Benjamin West called him the Berghem of England. He also painted in water-colour in the old tinted method with great success." (DNB). Snelgrove, p. 111.

        The Blue Passion Flower

      London, 1800. Hand-coloured and colour-printed aquatint, stipple and line engraving by Caldwell. Sheet size: 21 1/2 x 16 1/2 inches. One of the most strikingly beautiful flower plates ever to be printed in England. "[Passiflora caerulea L.] The species of Passion Flower depicted in this plate, a native of Brazil and Peru and known in Europe since 1699, was the first discovered that was hardy in the cooler regions of the earth and could therefore, in Thornton's time, when glasshouses were less common, be more easily grown over a larger area of the world. Its flowers are only faintly scented and last but one day, but they are produced over several months, and plants flowering first in June often continue until October. In this plate both flowers and leaves have been depicted by the painter, Philip Reinagle, with life-like accuracy and engraved by Caldwell with a masterly fidelity. The delicate stipple of the flowers and their modelling, and that of the leaves is of a standard not often reached." (Ronald King, The Temple of Flora by Robert Thornton, 1981, p. 80) Thornton's The Temple of Flora is the greatest English colour-plate flower book. "...[Thornton] inherited a competent fortune and trained as a doctor. He appears to have had considerable success in practice and was appointed both physician to the Marylebone Dispensary and lecturer in medical botany at Guy's and St. Thomas's hospitals. But quite early in his career he embarked on his...great work. What Redouté produced under the patronage of L'Héritier, Marie Antoinette, the Empress Josephine, Charles X, and the Duchesse de Berry, Thornton set out to do alone... Numerous important artists were engaged...twenty-eight paintings of flowers commissioned from Abraham Pether, known as `Moonlight Pether,' Philip Reinagle, ...Sydenham Edwards, and Peter Henderson...The result...involved Thornton in desperate financial straits...In an attempt to extricate himself he organized the Royal Botanic Lottery, under the patronage of the Prince Regent...It is easy to raise one's eyebrows at Thornton's unworldly and injudicious approach to publishing...But he produced...one of the loveliest books in the world." (Alan Thomas, Great Books and Book Collecting , pp.142-144) Second state of three of this plate from The Temple of Flora . "Three very definite states...First state: the main stem and the stems of the bud and the leaf in the upper centre have a pronounced shadow with hard outlines. The dark patch of shading to the left of the base of the column has a hard upper edge. The part of the leaf to the right of the fruit is in aquatint only and so is the leaf projecting to the left beyond the column. The dark shading to the right of the column above the leaf has a jagged edge and the cloud above has an indistinct edge. Second state: the shadows of the stems of the upper centre are smaller and the edges are softer. The dark patch of shading is softened. The aquatint on the leaves mentioned above is strengthened with cross-hatched lines. There are added horizontal lines on the base of the column near the fruit. Third state...aquatint on the leaves and buds; the indistinct cloud has now a white edge, and there is...line rework[sic.] on many of the leaves. The flowers are no longer all printed in colours as before." (Handasyde Buchanan, Thornton's Temple of Flora , London, 1951, p.18).

        A FUNERAL ORATION ON THE DEATH OF GEORGE WASHINGTON LATE PRESIDENT & COMMANDER IN CHIEF OF THE ARMIES OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA...DELIVERED AT THE REQUEST OF CONGRESS...TO WHICH IS SUBJOINED, AN EULOGY: BY JUDGE MINOT

      London, 1800. Half title. Printed self-wrappers, not stitched. Light soiling and toning of half title. Minor soiling internally, a bit heavier on final leaf. About very good. Untrimmed and partially unopened. In a half morocco clamshell case. Of the scores of funeral orations delivered on the occasion of George Washington's death, that of Henry Lee (the official oration delivered in Congress) is the most famous and memorable. In it he coins and delivers the ringing phrase that Washington was "first in war - first in peace - and first in the hearts of his countrymen." Reprinted many times in many versions, this is the first London printing of Lee's oration. Lee, popularly known as "Light-Horse Harry" Lee, was personally summoned by Washington in 1776 to join the Continental Army, and he served Washington faithfully and well during the Revolution. Lee was a Federalist Representative from Virginia when Washington died in late 1799, and was assigned the task of drafting a congressional resolution commemorating the great leader. In that resolution, and a few days later in this address delivered to both houses of Congress in Philadelphia on Dec. 26, 1799, Lee pronounced his famous phrase, placing Washington firmly at the head of the pantheon of American leaders. Lee recalls Washington's military service in the French and Indian War, recounts his many triumphs in the Revolution, and his service as president. He declares: "...the founder of our federate republic - our bulwark in war, our guide in peace, is no more...[but] his fame survives! bounded only by the limits of the earth, and by the extent of the human mind. He survives in our hearts, in the growing knowledge of our children, in the affection of the good throughout the world; and when our monuments shall be done away; when nations now existing shall be no more; when even our young and far-spreading empire shall have perished, still will our Washington's glory unfaded shine, and die not, until love of virtue cease on earth, or earth itself sinks into chaos." Lee's pronouncement that Washington is "first in war - first in peace - and first in the hearts of his countrymen" is second only to the idea of Washington as "father of his country" in the popular lexicon and mythology of Washington. Lee's funeral oration is a fundamentally important document in the shaping of George Washington's image in American culture, and in the apotheosis of Washington. Also included in this London printing is George Minot's eulogy on Washington, delivered in Boston at the request of the town's "Committee of Arrangements." Minot's speech, urging his fellow citizens to carry on following Washington's example, is also highly regarded.

        Education pratique

      1800 - 459 pp. Paris, Maginel, 1800, in-8, 459 pp, reliure de l'époque en veau moucheté, dos lisse orné de motifs dorés, tranches marbrées, Édition originale de la première traduction française de ce livre qui devait rénover l'éducation anglaise, elle est due au diplomate suisse Pictet. Maria Edgeworth occupe une place importante dans le renouvellement, à la fin du dix-huitième siècle, de la pédagogie. Sa carrière fut constamment contrecarrée par le despotisme de son père, dont elle était l'un des vingt et un enfants, circonstance qui favorisait en elle des réflexions sur l'éducation. La table du livre montre la finesse et l'étendue des explorations de Maria Edgeworth : jouets, attention domestique, maison, humeur, obéissance, vérité, récompenses, châtiments, vanité, fierté, ambition, sont analysés chez l'enfant avec autant de délicatesse que de perspicacité.

        An album containing ten watercolour and gouache drawings of botanical arrangements

      1800. Oblong folio. (9 1/2 x 12 7/8 inches). 10 original watercolour and gouache drawings on Chinese pith paper (each approx. 8 x 11 1/2 inches), most with small areas heightened with gum arabic, each tipped onto a backing sheet at each corner and bordered by strips of pale blue paper that are also tipped to the backing sheet (four with insignificant splits to the pith paper, as usual). Original gilt-patterned paper over pasteboard, green cloth ties A lovely early album of fine Chinese flower paintings, in remarkably fine condition. Despite its entirely Chinese origins this album was almost certainly produced for a western patron: perhaps a gift from an East India Company employee to his wife, or a Yankee clipper captain for his daughter. It contains a very fine selection of watercolours executed on pith-paper: a material that rarely survives in anything approaching fine condition. The drawings are all of arrangements of sprigs from flowering plants together with individual blooms. The intention of these drawings was not to provide dry scientifically-accurate botanical drawings, but to produce designs that were pleasing and harmonious. Flowers include Hibiscus, Gardenia, Chrysanthemum, Quince, Morning Glory, Camellia and two butterflies. It later became the custom to instruct the Chinese artists in the art of western botanical drawing and also supply them with good quality western paper to work on. The apparent lack of any foreign materials or method suggest an earlier date for this album, although the style of drawing did remain popular through most of the 19th century.

Rubbing to extremities with some wear, chipping to spine ends, a few scuffs and stains to boards, corners bumped. Text to 136 pages. Light toning to interior, dampstaining and minor to a few leaves. Early owner signature in different hand (of Edw. Jones, June 1803) to front pastedown. * With index. Probably compiled around 1800, this is the second volume of a manuscript law dictionary with entries from M to W. The eleven-page index lists the content of both volumes. The definitions reflect the practice of the late-eighteenth century. The inclusion of such entries as "Gavelkind," "Vicar" and "Waste" shows it is an English manuscript. The content appears to have been commonplaced from lecture notes. The handwriting, though perfectly legible, is not especially neat; it contains occasional cross-outs and changes. Some entries appear to be incomplete; other headings have no content at all. This manuscript and its companion volume may have been a set of working notes for a fair copy.

        Raskolnik. Livre liturgique.

      circa 1800 - In-8 de 86 feuillets non chiffrés, veau fauve estampé à froid sur ais de bois, dos à trois nerfs, pièce de titre en veau brun, décor d'entrelacs géométriques de filets droits et courbes à froid différent pour chaque plats, compartiment central du premier plat orné d'un fleurons et d'inscription à froid, fermoirs d'attache en laiton, quatre boulons de protections en émail blanc sur le plat inférieur (reliure fin XIXe siècle). Livre liturgique utilisé par les «vieux-croyants » orthodoxes appelés aussi Raskolniks. Les « vieux-croyants » forment un ensemble de groupes qui se sont séparés de l'Eglise orthodoxe de Russie par leur refus des réformes introduites par le patriarche Nikon en 1666. L'ouvrage imprimé en rouge et noir reproduit l'écriture manuscrite en slavon d'église des anciens textes avant la réforme. Bandeaux illustrés, culs-de-lampe et lettrines. « Le raskolnik dut chercher dans les vieux missels, dans les vieux manuscrits les traces de ces traditions dont il reprochait à l?église l?abandon ; ils savent lire, mais ils ne lisent que des livres de dévotion, ils ne lisent que de vieux livres. C?est ici surtout que se montre l?aveugle respect du raskol pour l?antiquité, et, de toutes les formes du culte du passé, le culte exclusif des vieux livres, des vieux auteurs, n?est pas le moins fatal au progrès. Chez les vieux-croyans, l?amour des vieux usages s?étend aux procédés de l?écriture comme aux formes des lettres et de la langue. Dans sa révolte contre l'autorité, il resemble moins au jacobin qu'au Vendéen. Le Vieux Croyant est le réfractaire moscovite persistant à travers les transformations de la Russie Nouvelle ». (A. Leroy-Beaulieu) Quelques feuillets défraîchis, trace de mouillure angulaire. Petit manque de cuir sur l'un des fermoirs.

To which are added, views taken on the spot, by Lieutenant Samuel Davis; and observations botanical, mineralogical, and medical, by Mr. Robert Saunders

      London: printed by W. Bulmer & Co, and sold by G. & W. Nicol, 1800. Imperial quarto. (13 x 9 3/4 inches). Folding engraved map after Samuel Davis, 13 plates (1 aquatint by De la Motte after Stubbs, 1 double-page line engraving of script, 2 engraved views by James Basire after Turner, 1 engraved plan and 8 views by James Basire after Samuel Davis), 1 engraved illustration. Contemporary russia, covers bordered in gilt and blind, armorial stamp on the upper cover, expertly rebacked to style, spine with double-raised bands in six compartments, lettered in the second, the others with a repeat decoration in gilt, period marbled endpaper and edges Provenance: Sir Simon Richard Brisett Taylor (1783-1815, arms in gilt on the upper cover, armorial bookplate on the front pastedown) A rare large paper issue of the first edition of the official account of Turner&#39;s embassy to Bhutan and Tibet: the first great western account of the region. Acting on Warren Hastings orders, Samuel Turner&#39;s expedition was despatched with the aim of improving "trans-Himalayan trade after the Nepal war. Turner&#39;s party, including the surgeon and botanist Dr Robert Saunders, set off from Calcutta in January 1783. Davis was to survey the route and record the topographical features of the country ... While in Bhutan during their first audience with the Deb Raja in his palace at Tassisudon, Turner explained to him that &#39;drawing constituted in England a branch of education; and that we made unequal progress in the art, I could boast but little skill in it, but that my friend Mr. Davis had attained a great degree of perfection&#39; ... After four months in Bhutan waiting for permission to enter Tibet ... the three men were told that only Turner and Saunders could proceed. Turner believed that the authorities were suspicious of Davis&#39;s drawing skills ... Leaving Davis behind in Bhutan ... Turner and Saunders departed for Tibet on 8 September 1783. Their travels were to last until March the following year" ( Indian Life & Landscape p.194). The Table of Plates notes that the plates were all engraved from originals in the possession of Warren Hastings - including the image of the Yak. The Yak was one of a pair sent to Hastings, by his kinsman, Turner. Only one survived the journey, and it is this animal that was painted by George Stubbs from life. In the background, Stubbs incorporates Davis&#39;s view of Punakha Dzong, the summer palace in Bhutan.Published at 2l. 2s in boards, contemporary advertisements reveal that a smaller number of copies were available in large paper, printed from the same setting of type as the smaller regular issue but in larger size and on better paper stock, at 4l. 4s.Cox I, 346; cf.

La météorologie est le premier domaine scientifique au sujet duquel Lamarck a écrit un mémoire, par ailleurs bien reçu par l'Académie."In 1797, he began publishing articles on meteorology and attempting to provide theoretical explanations for factors causing weather change".Évolutionniste, il ne réussit pas à prouver sa théorie par l'expérience. Cependant, l'étude de la météorologie nourrit sa théorie de l'évolution : "climate was an important factor in his theory , it would be important to seek the laws regulating changes in climate and therefore perhaps be able to predict or understand changes in organisms more fully" (DSB p.587-588) Ouvrages intéressants, dont la publication fut arrêtée suite aux reproches de Napoléon. En effet, il lui aurait été rapporté que Lamarck faisait des Almanachs, ce qui déconsidérait l'Académie. vol. II : in-12 vol. V : reliure légèrement usée. vol. VII-XII : reliure légèrement usée, la teinte des tranches a débordé en marges de certains feuillets. Néanmoins, bel ensemble. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        A.J.H. Malartic, G.al en Chef, Gouverneur G.al des Isles de France et de la Reunion et C.Dant G.al des Eta. Ent Francais a l'Est Cap Bo.ne Esp.ce. Né a Montaubaun le 3 J.let 1730. Mort a l'Isle de France le 9 T.dor An 8e

      1800 - Engraving, 5 x 4 inches. Light soiling. A few contemporary ink notations on verso. Engraved portrait of Governor Anne Joseph Hippolyte de Maurès, Comte de Malartic, governor of the island of Mauritius. The portrait is a line-drawing, done in profile and framed in an oval. Flags flank either side of the oval frame and it is captioned beneath. There is some light wear to the tiny imprint information, causing it to be slightly obscured, but it is possible that the illustrator's name is "Girouai" and the engraver may be "Noiret." The engraving is a bit crude and printed on laid paper. It is likely that it was done shortly after Malartic's death in 1800. A most unusual and exotic image, a tribute to the rich culture of printing that flourished on the remote island in the south Indian Ocean.

        The Trial of Jane Leigh Perrot, Wife of James Leigh Perrot, Esq; Charged with Stealing a Card of Lace in the Shop of Elizabeth Gregory, Haberdasher and Milliner, at Bath . .

      Taunton: Printed by and for Thomas Norris; London: Sold by Carpenter, E. Newbery, Hurst and Co., [et al], (1800) - 8vo, later brown paper wrappers, typed label on the upper wrapper, 43 pages. Woodcut plan after the title-page; without half-title. ? A trial for the crime of shoplifting which achieved great notoriety in its time and remains interesting today for the fact that the accused, Jane Leigh Perrot, was the aunt of novelist Jane Austen and a regular presence in her life in Bath. There were three witnesses for the prosecution and over twelve (primarily character witnesses) for the defense, in addition to Mrs. Perrot's statement on her behalf. The jury was out for about fifteen minutes and then rendered a verdict of "not guilty." Some have concluded that Mrs. Leigh Perrot was framed, that the shop's proprietors inserted the card of lace into her purchases to blackmail the wealthy Leigh Perrots. Others think that she got off lightly because she was from a prominent, wealthy family. ? In addition to the testimony, there is a plan of the shop and list of the jurors, counselors (6) and solicitors (2).? Contemporary ink signature on the title-page of William Burgh, who has written in the margin of page 16, commenting on the proceedings: "Why did he not challenge it then? There was a Possibility of a Mistake, the opportunity of rectifying it should have been given. It now looks as if she was suffered to take it away in order to ground a malicious prosecution, or with a hope to be silenced by Reward." Wrappers wrinkled; very good copy. ESTC T108778 records five copies in the British Isles (BL [2], Morrab, Oxford, Somerset; and five in North America (HEH, Columbia, Free Library of Philadelohia, Harvard [2] and Morgan) First edition; there were two subsequent editions.

WITH: DRYDEN, John. Poetical Worksâ&#128;¦ Containing Original Poems, Tales, and Translations, with Notes by the Late Rev. Joseph Warton. London: T. Cadell, Jun. and W. Davies; F.C. and J. Rivington, et al., 1800; 1811. Eight volumes. Octavo, late 19th-century full brown speckled calf, raised bands, elaborately gilt-decorated spines, green morocco spine labels, marbled endpapers. $2400.First critical Malone edition of Drydenâ&#128;&#153;s prose works, with engraved frontispiece portraits, and containing Maloneâ&#128;&#153;s famous biography of Dryden, together with Wartonâ&#128;&#153;s edition of the verse, also with engraved frontispiece portrait, handsomely bound.Edmond Maloneâ&#128;&#153;s edition of Drydenâ&#128;&#153;s prose works contains his famous biography of Dryden, upon which Sir Walter Scott relied in his own Dramatic Works of John Dryden. Considered Drydenâ&#128;&#153;s first â&#128;&#156;editor,â&#128;&#157; Malone was â&#128;&#156;the first historian of early English drama, the biographer of Shakespeare, Dryden and Reynolds, and a relentless exposer of literary fraud and forgery. His dedication to discovering the facts of literary history through manuscripts and early editions laid the foundations for the scholarâ&#128;&#153;s code and the modern study of literatureâ&#128;&#157; (Peter Martin). Joseph Warton began preparing his critical edition of Drydenâ&#128;&#153;s verse in 1800 but did not live to complete it; his younger son John finished the task. â&#128;&#156;Dryden is one of the most significant figures in the history of English verse; for he perhaps more than any other single person formulated a method for poetry that has appealed to disciplesâ&#128;¦ as different as Pope, Gray, Churchill, Byron, Keats and T.S. Eliotâ&#128;¦ [Drydenâ&#128;&#153;s method] is, in short, the poetry of eloquenceâ&#128;&#157; (Baugh et al., 722). Booklabel of renowned bibliophile Abel E.
