Scott considered her descriptions of Irish characters inspiration for his Waverley novels. Jane Austen sent her a copy of Emma" (Loeber).

Substantial account of the 1790-1792 circumnavigation by French creole Etienne Marchand (1755-1793), who sailed from Marseilles in the Solide, round Cape Horn to make landfall in the Marquesas, which he explored and claimed for France. The Solide bought furs from Indians on the north American coast in the vicinity of the Queen Charlotte Islands, crossed the Pacific via the Sandwich Islands and the Marianas, and reached Macao. Machand headed for the Île de France (Mauritius), where he had previously arranged to draw money, which proved to be unavailable following the fall of the French monarchy. He returned to a France in the throes of revolutionary tumult; Marchand dies in 1793 and Charles Claret, comte de Fleuriel, another member of the Solide party, edited the material from this "pioneering commercial expedition." Howgego also notes, "Unfortunately, [Marchand's] voyage coincide with changes in the régime in France, with the result that this contributions to French imperialism were largely ignored." This is the octavo issue of the publication; the atlas is in quarto format (also published as vol. IV of the quarto issue, as in the present copy).

        Das Geschlecht der Land und Wasserwanzen. Nach Familien geordnet mit Abbildungen.

      Zürich, Orell, Füssli und Compagnie, 1800. Royal-8vo (245 x 155mm). pp. 32, with 14 handcoloured engraved plates. Contemporary marbled boards, paper spine gone. A Latin edition appeared the same year. Schellenberg illustrated a number of beautiful botanical and entomological monographs and was considered to be one of the best natural history artists of his time. He was rightly famous for his minute details and precision. Roemer writes about him as follows: "Eben dieser Schellenberg hat ... eine erstaunliche Menge von Insecten nach der Natur gezeichnet und gemahlt ... Richtigkeit in der Zeichnung, Leben und das herrlichste Colorit scheinen da mit einander um die Palme streiten zu wollen" (Thanner, Schmutz & Geus. J.R. Schellenberg, p. 144). "So nimmt Schellenberg aufgrund des breiten Spektrums der von ihm bearbeiteten Themen, der meisterhaften Beherrschung der Technik und seiner präzisen und qualitativ hochstehenden Gestaltungsweise einen hervorragenden Platz in der Geschichte der Buchillustration ein" (Thanner... p. 148).

        Zimao, the African. Translated by the Rev. Weeden Butler

      Printed for Vernor and Hood by S. Rousseau 1800 - FIRST EDITION, with a Bewickesque woodcut vignette on the title, and a tailpiece, spotted and browned, pp. xi, 105, [2, ads], 12mo, modern black morocco backed grey cloth boards by Verona Fine Hand Bindings, Kingston, Jamaica, lettered in gilt on the spine, large bookplate of Stephen Hopwood (the noted Africana collector) Butler, Weeden (1772-1831) did make several translations, but this is probably not one, or at any rate, not from the French, set as it is in Jamaica; moreover, the text is generously interspersed with quotations and footnotes, some in French, as well as Greek, Latin and English. The novella is in effect an anti-slavery tract. The first person narrator is staying with a friend Wilmot from Philadelphia on his plantation in the interior. The American friend is kind to his slaves, lets them work for themselves two days a week and allows them to sell their produce, freeing them after ten years' good behaviour. A Maroon rebellion breaks out, headed by Zimao, not long arrived from Benin, where he had been most treacherously enslaved by the Portuguese. Wilmot arms his slaves, who vow to die defending Wilmot and his family. While the revolt progresses, in full view from the hill-top plantation, a young slave, also from Benin, volunteers, and is despatched to parley with Zimao. Zimao comes to Wilmot's plantation, recognises Wilmot's beneficence, and proceeds to recount his story. He invites Wilmot's slaves to join the rebellion, but they prefer to remain where they are. An Appendix contains further documents, mainly from British naval surgeons, who had witnessed the slave trade at first hand. There was a Dublin edition in the same year, and a second edition in 1807: all are rare. P. xi bears a quotation from Erasmus Darwin's Botanic Garden. (ESTC T75674, BL, O, NYPL)

After spending five months at Tahiti, he set sail for the Caribbean by way of Tonga, where the famous mutiny took place. Bligh and 18 of his men were set adrift in the ship's small launch boat and made a remarkable voyage to Timor, more than 6.5 kilometres away. "In the course of this hazardous journey Bligh took the opportunity to chart and name parts of the unknown north-east coast of New Holland [= Australia] as he passed along it" (Wantrup).With library stamp on flyleaf. Prominent waterstain throughout in the lower margin, affecting two of the maps, one map restored and all maps somewhat foxed. Fair copy.

(Renatus Gotthelf Löbel bezeichnete sich selbst in seiner Vorrede zum Conversationslexikon als Nachfolger Johann Hübners, unter dessen Namen das 1704 erstmals erschienene Reale Staats- und Zeitungs-Lexicon bekannt geworden war. Löbels Ziel bestand in der Schaffung eines "dem gegenwärtigen Umfange der Conversation angemessenen Wörterbuches". Zwischen 1796 und 1800 erschienen die ersten vier Bände, doch nach Löbels frühem Tod im Jahr 1799 sah zunächst alles so aus, als würde es unvollendet bleiben. Dann erschienen 1806 aber ein fünfter Band bei Johann Karl Werther in Leipzig und 1808 Teile des sechsten Bandes bei Johann Friedrich Herzog in Leipzig. Am 25. Oktober 1808 schließlich kaufte Friedrich Arnold Brockhaus (1772-1823), der 1805 mit seiner Verlagstätigkeit in Amsterdam begonnen hatte, das Lexikon dem Leipziger Buchdrucker und Zeitungsverleger Friedrich Richter ab, der das Werk vermutlich in Herzogs Auftrag gedruckt hatte und es bei dessen Insolvenz in Zahlung genommen hatte. Bis zu seinem Tode im Jahr 1823 erweiterte er das Werk kontinuierlich und schuf so die Grundlage für die Brockhaus-Enzyklopädie.) Size: 8° [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        An account of the voyages undertaken by the order of His Present Majesty, for making discoveries in the southern hemisphere, and successively performed by Commodore Byron, Captain Wallis, Captain Carteret, and Captain Cook, in the Dolphin, the Swallow, and the Endeavour.London, W. Strahan, T. Cadell, 1773. 3 volumes. Large 4to (29.5 x 24.5 cm). With 28 engraved charts and views of coasts, bays and estuaries (several large folding) and 23 numbered engraved illustrations (topographic views, portraits, etc., mostly folding). Contemporary uniform mottled calf, gold-tooled spines.

      Beddie 648; ESTC T74465; Hill 782; Holmes 5; Mendelssohn I, p. 377; Sabin 30934 ("The first edition, to be preferred for its plates"); Howgego, to 1800, C173. First edition (first issue) of the official account of James Cook's first voyage, edited from Cook's journals by John Hawkesworth. Although Hawkesworth was heavily criticized for his sloppy editorial work and his use of the first person, the account is of great historical significance, especially for its finely executed illustrations. The first volume relates the voyages of Byron, Carteret and Wallis (the discoverer of Tahiti), and volumes two and three are devoted to Cook's voyage. Cook was appointed commander of the Endeavour to sail for Tahiti to observe the transit of Venus and to search for the hypothetical Terra Australis, whose existence had been proposed by the geographer Alexander Dalrymple. In Tahiti he duly observed the transit and then sailed south in search of the southern continent until bad weather forced him to turn north again. In October 1769 the crew sighted the northern Island of New Zealand. Cook spent many weeks surveying New Zealand and his remarkably accurate chart, included in the second volume, remains a major achievement. From New Zealand he steered westward, heading for the east coast of Australia. Cook surveyed and charted almost the whole coast of New South Wales and proved that New Holland (Australia) and New Guinea were two separate islands. According to Holmes there are several issues of the first edition and the "earliest issues lack the directions for placing the cuts and the 'Chart of the Streight of Magellan'..." (Holmes ). Our copy includes the directions for the binder, but lacks the chart of the Strait of Magellan.All volumes have some leaves foxed or browned, but otherwise in very good condition. Bindings scuffed at the extremities and worn in the joints, with a long crack in the joint of the front board of volume 1, but otherwise good.

        The Effects of Youthful Extravagance & Idleness; The Fruits of early Industry & Oeconomy

      London 1800 - A pair of colour printed stipple engravings. Image size: 23 1/8 x 18 3/4 inches. A fine pair of colour printed stipple engravings by George Morland, the master of English genre painting. George Morland was one of the most successful genre painters of his time, creating, during his industrious career, some of England's most cherished paintings. At an early age Morland displayed his artistic genius, he learned to paint at three and exhibited his first work at the Royal Academy at the mere age of ten. Morland was a prodigious painter, producing more than 4000 paintings during the entirety of his career, and sometimes painting two or three works in a day. His beautiful idealistic scenes were a favorite source of inspiration for contemporary engravers, and as many as 250 separate engravings were done of his paintings during his lifetime. Morland is considered a master of genre, his beautiful paintings depict with insightful subtlety the tender side of English country life. The subjects of this pair of very fine prints find echoes in a number of earlier works, most notably William Hogarth's series titled 'The Idle.' and 'The Industrious Apprentice'. The present pair are specifically described by Samuel Collings' verses which appear with the title beneath each image.

      [N.p., but almost certainly Mauritius. N. d., but ca. 1800]. - Engraving, 5 x 4 inches. Light soiling. A few contemporary ink notations on verso. Very good. 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.

        Untersuchungen über den Ursprung der Harmonie und ihre allmählige Ausbildung

      Folding handcolored engraved frontispiece, two engraved plates (one folding, the other heightened in red), one folding printed plate, & music printing in the text. xii, 52 pp., one leaf of errata. 8vo, cont. marbled semi-stiff boards, uncut. Erfurt: Beyer & Maring, 1800. First edition of this attractive and fascinating book which relates harmony to colors; it is very much a product of early German Romanticism. Dalberg (1760-1812), was an author, composer, and aesthetician. He was "born into a noble family...though physically deformed, he was a virtuoso pianist...He studied composition with Ignaz Holzbauer and travelled extensively in Italy and England. His works about music and his compositions were published regularly in his lifetime and were regarded seriously by professionals... "Dalberg's writings cover such diverse subjects as meteorology, penal law and translations of works on oriental subjects. This wide range of interest that hints at the dilettante is also reflected in his writings on music. Their topics included the music of India, ancient Greek music, newly invented instruments and the history of harmony."-New Grove, Vol. 5, pp. 151-52. Dalberg was very interested in the nature of musical inspiration and in the present work he provides a history of harmony and relates various harmonic structures to certain colors. The wonderful handcolored frontispiece depicts a color scale ranging from deep blue to pale yellow. Dalberg associates diatonic and chromatic scales with darker colors and enharmonic scales with orange and yellow. Fine copy. .

        Liber Chronicarum

      More than 1800 woodcuts in the text including a Ptolemaic world map, & one folding woodcut map of northern & central Europe. CCCXXXVIII leaves, 25 unnumbered leaves (without the two blanks). Small folio (300 x 204 mm.), fine smooth 18th-cent. vellum over boards (title with a few very light stains & a very faint old stamp, first & final two leaves with tiny marginal wormholes). Augsburg: J. Schoensperger, 1 Feb. 1497. A very lovely copy, complete with a fine example of the often-missing folding map of northern and central Europe, of the first edition of the "Small Schedel," a reduced version of the large folio of 1493, entirely reset and with the famous illustrations re-cut. Originally published by Anton Koberger in Nuremberg in 1493, the Chronicle is a biblical account of the Creation of the World, ending with the Last Judgement. The many city views, some imaginary, include those of Augsburg, Nuremberg, Cologne, Mainz, Wurzburg, Munich, Strasbourg, Ulm, Prague, Vienna, Milan, Genoa, Rome, Pisa, Florence, Venice, Paris, Lyon, Bratislava, Cracow, Athens, Constantinople, Cairo, Damascus, and Jerusalem. Also included is a reduced Ptolemaic world map. The hundreds of portraits illustrate biblical figures, kings and queens, popes, philosophers, poets, and other figures of historical interest. Interspersed are passages on disastrous events and portents, monsters and other curiosities. Originally the work of the famous woodcutters Michael Wolgemut, teacher of Dürer, and Wilhelm Pleydenwurff, Schoensperger had the illustrations re-cut by some of his best craftsmen to fit the new format. Copies of the "small Schedel" are considerably rarer than the original, large folio, editions. All editions are, however, very rarely found in original, unsophisticated state, with most copies that come onto the market defective, and with leaves missing or supplied. The copy offered here is an unusually well-preserved and "pure" example. A few other minor flaws but a very fine crisp copy. Final leaf backed at the time of rebinding in the 18th century (the verso of the final leaf is blank). ❧ Goff S-308. Klebs 889.2. .
