        Etat des pauvres, ou histoire des classes travaillantes de la sociŽtŽ en Angleterre; extrait de l'ouvrage publiŽ en anglais par Sir Morten-EdenÉpar Larochefoucauld-LiancourtÉ

      Paris: de l'ImprimŽrie de H. Agasse, An VIII de la RŽpublique, [1800]. - A disciple of Adam Smith, Sir Frederick Morton Eden (1766-1809) embarked on his investigation of the living conditions of the poor after witnessing the harsh effects of the high prices brought on by the war in 1794-5. He published his results in three volumes, "the first containing a description of the condition of the laboring classes and an analysis of its causes, the other two the supporting facts in the form of parochial reports on the administration of workhouses and houses of industry, friendly societies, and other charitable organizations, with a lengthy series of appendixes, including tables of prices and wages and a list of works on poverty and its alleviationÉEden's own work, notwithstanding its originality, might now be forgotten if it were not for the invaluable collection of facts attached to it, which can never cease to be of importance. More valuable even than these, however, is the method he adopted of obtaining and systemizing statistically the details of so diffuse a problem; it has proved the basis of sociological investigation ever since" (Printing and the Mind of Man). The translator, Franois Alexandre FrŽdŽric, Duc de la Rochefoucauld-Liancourt (1747-1827), was a liberal French peer and philanthropist. He founded the school of Arts et MŽtiers at Ch‰lons, and the first saving fund in France. He wrote poems, dramas, and historical works, as well as an eight-volume Travels in America (1800). Octavo. [4], 262 pp. Three folding tables. Rebound in half vellum over marbled boards. A very good, uncut copy, with the original wrappers bound in. First French translation, abridged of Eden's State of the Poor, originally published in 1797. Einaudi 1713. Kress B.4119. McCulloch, pp. 285-6. Not in Goldsmiths. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

      London. 1800. - [4],28pp. 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. STILLWELL, WASHINGTON EULOGIES 137. ANB 13, pp.372-74. SABIN 39749. ESTC T141505.

      London: Sabine and Son, no. 81 Shoe Lane, Fleet Street, 1800. Octavo, 120 pages. Some woodcut illustrations in the text. Stated twentieth edition. One of the most popular of English eighteenth-century cookbooks. According to the 24th edition of this book, Lydia Fisher was "Late cook and House-keeper to the Duke of Newcastle, Marquis of Rickingham &c. upward of 50 years." The dating of editions of this book is debated, with some early catalogue entries placing most of the twenty-five printings prior to 1800, and more recent estimates placing many afterwards. This copy has been neatly rebound in paper-covered boards over a brown cloth spine, with a printed paper label. The interior exhibits some foxing and a few small wormholes. Puncture marks from a prior binding are on exhibit in the gutter. Despite the popularity of this work and its many printings, copies remain scarce.

Fourcroy was one of the earliest converts to the views of the modern chemist Antoine Lavoisier, which he diffused through his own extensive writings.

He helped establish schools for both primary and secondary education. Scientific studies were especially provided for. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Innocent Recreation

      Published by Testolini, London 1800 - A delightful, intimate genre scene in a domestic interior. The scene depicted in this charming print is an allegory of innocence. It pictures a young girl, who herself personifies virtue, engaged in the innocent activity of feeding her pet fowl. Clad in a white dress, she smiles and gazes at the viewer with a wide-eyed expression of childish wonder as she sprinkles breadcrumbs over the beak of a young bird awaiting the snack in anticipation, as its mother looks on approvingly. Colour-printed stipple engraving. Very good condition apart from some mild mat burn and a few tiny nicks at the edge of the top margin.

      Robert Laurie and James Whittle, London 1800 - Large folio, measuring 22 by 15.5 inches, or 56 by 40 cm, with the 13 maps contained herein all double paged. The maps are copper engraved and hand-colored in outline, most with typical Baroque style, often figurative, cartouches in the corners with the title of the particular map contained therein. The maps are watermarked 1794. They are also printed on a paper with a high rag content and thus well-preserved, with a bit of light toning and only trivial soiling otherwise. A few leaves have a long, narrow light dampstain along a margin, which few would find bothersome. There are a few minor chips and/or tears besides, again not intrusive of the maps proper. Rebacked with modern calf. Otherwise the marbled boards and the corner calf triangles are contemporary. The latter have wear, as do the edges.

      Canterbury, London 1800 - Owned by George Daniel, then Mark Pattison. 203 x 121 mm (8 x 4 3/4"). lxxix, [i], 336, 6 pp. Edited by Sir Samuel Egerton Brydges. First Printing of this Enlarged, Updated Edition. Appealing recent brown quarter morocco over linen boards, raised bands, red morocco label. Front flyleaf with ownership inscription of "G. D. / Canonbury"; title page with small, discreet embossed stamp of "Mark Pattison, Lincoln College, Oxon" (see below for both). In exceptionally fine condition inside and out. This is a series of brief biographies of 165 English poets who flourished between the years 1270 and 1603, beginning with Robert of Gloucester and ending with Queen Elizabeth herself. According to DNB, "it includes considered accounts of Shakespeare and Marlowe, a well-written introductory 'discourse on poets and poetry', a panegyric on his brother John, and a reticent allusion to his famous uncle," John Milton. Phillips was educated by Milton and later served as his uncle's amenuensis, after the poet's eyesight failed. The editor here, Sir Samuel Egerton Brydges (1762-1837), had a great desire to achieve literary fame, but "he was unhappily led to mistake his delight in reading great works of literature for an evidence of his capacity to produce similar works himself," and his original imaginative works are undistinguished. (DNB) He nevertheless did good service for British literature by producing a number of useful bibliographies, and by seeking out and editing for re-publication both the works of standard authors and rare works which had previously been accessible only to a few wealthy collectors. The provenance here does a great deal to distinguish our copy. Our earlier owner, "G. D. / Canonbury," is surely George Daniel of Canonbury Square, Islington, who amassed one of the most extensive and outstanding collections of dramatic literature, early Shakespeare editions, and Elizabethan ballads. Our other known owner, Mark Pattison (1813-84), was the head of Lincoln College at Oxford University from 1861 and an author and editor of considerable importance. According to DNB, "he had the reputation of being the most learned man in England.". First Printing of this Enlarged, Updated Edition [Attributes: Hard Cover]

London 1798. - 'The African Association was founded in 1788. Its activities mark the beginning of African exploration in a systematic way, as well as the furthering of British trade and political prestige on that continent. This association was later merged into the Royal Geographical Society. The first concern of the African Association was the River Niger - where was its source and what was the direction of its flow, etc. The first four expeditions were unfortunate for the leaders, Ledyard, Lucas, Horneman, and Houghton, all of whom either died while enroute or were murdered by the fanatical Moors. The fifth, that of Mungo Park, was rich in geographical results, though he too died on his second expedition' (Cox I, p.388). This book contains the travel-accounts in Africa of Daniel Hougton (1790-91) and of Mungo Park (1795-97, his first expedition); with geographical explanation by James Rennell. - Good copy; very rare.Gay 2788 (English ed.); Not in Tiele.

        Death of Captain Cook

      London: circa, 1800. Engraving, 16.5 x 22 cm. (image size), tightly clipped not affecting image and retaining central caption, a good strong impression, mounted. Popular issue. An unusual version of the famous scene at Kealakekua Bay, in a very good impression. Although the original image on which this is loosely based is clearly that of Webber, the engraving bears close comparison with the version of the scene first published by the engraver Alexander Hogg in 1784, and included in the important compendium edited by George William Anderson, {i A New, Authentic, and Complete Collection of Voyages Round the World} (see Forbes 61). Given that the "Anderson" was much re-issued and copied, it is possible that this print originally derives from one of the later editions.

        Ilias kai Odysseia. [Four volumes.]

      Oxonia: ex Ergasteriou Typographikou Akademias 1800 - 5 engraved plates (two portrait busts of Homer, a portrait each of Thomas and Lord Grenville, and a plate depicting a column), plates spotted, some light offsetting to text, pp. viii, 396; [vi], 421, [3, blank]; [vi], 328; [vi], 314, [2], 82, 4to, contemporary red morocco, boards with central gilt stamp of the arms of the Earl of Cawdor, spines lettered in gilt, red morocco doublures with a border of fourteen gilt fillets, edges gilt on the rough, spines sunned, a touch of rubbing to extremities, doublures offset onto endpapers and outermost leaves of each vol., very good One of the rare and spectacular large-paper copies of the Grenville Homer, an edition which rivals the Foulis edition in its scale and bibliophilic attractions. Only 25 copies were printed, and a number of these were used as presentation copies - including this one. The editors, William Wyndham, Lord Grenville, and his brother Thomas Grenville, have inscribed an initial blank ‘From the Two Old Brothers . To their excellent Friend John Frederick Earl of Cawdor, 1829’ (in Thomas’s hand). Tipped in are two letters, one from Lord Grenville and one from Thomas, presenting the book to Lord Cawdor for his library at Stackpole Court.At the time of presentation Lord Grenville was retired from politics (he had been foreign secretary when the book was published, resigning with Pitt’s government before ending up as Prime Minister himself in 1806), while his elder brother Thomas was also relaxing, having since 1818 ‘lived in the company of his friends and his books, and devoted himself to the formation of his splendid library’ (ODNB), which was left to the British Museum after his death in 1846. Lord Cawdor was Lord Lieutenant of Carmarthenshire at this time. ‘This is the most critical edition of Homer which the university of Oxford has published. the work is printed in a handsome Greek type, with very few contractions; and the Large Paper copies are enriched with three very beautiful engravings, two of the busts of Homer and the third an elegant pillar with escutcheons of the Grenville arms’ (Dibdin). This copy also has portraits of Thomas and Lord Grenville. The final section of the fourth volume contains 82 pages of readings provided by Richard Porson from a collation of the Harleian manuscript; in the small-paper copies this section is different setting of type, filling 88 pages.‘At the mention of the large paper Grenville Homer, where is the classical Bibliomaniac who does not sigh at his inability, or want of opportunity, to possess it? -- and, in proportion, rejoice extravagantly on its possession?’ (Dbidin, Library Companion, p. 617).

        Map of Morris's Purchase or West Geneseo in the State of New York: Exhibiting Part of the Lakes Erie and Ontario, the Straights of Niagara, Chautauque Lake and All the Principal Waters . Purchased by the Holland Land Company .

      New York 1800 - A few light stains, else excellent condition. Rare. The first detailed map of New York State west of the Genesee River, in a very strong example. Ellicott produced the map on behalf of the Holland Land Company in order to sell their extensive land holdings in the region. Nestler hails the map as "probably the most important map of western NY when Buffalo was still known as New Amsterdam, and when land companies were luring settlers to this new frontier." It is superbly detailed, as Rumsey notes, in that it shows ¿every tributary of every tributary of every stream.¿ The map is equally precise with regard to towns, townships, reservations, Indian villages and roads. The map displays three and a half million acres purchased in 1792 by the Holland Land Company, a Dutch consortium, from the American banker Robert Morris in a transaction known as ¿The Holland Purchase.¿ Ellicott, operating as agent for the company, established its offices in Batavia, whose advantageous positioning at a crossroads on the Geneseo Road made it an ideal location for administering the sale of the lands surrounding it.

        Veduta della Piazza della Rotonda

      Paris - Hind 17This is the 5th state We are unable to determin a watermark due to the fact that the plate has been laid on paperThis print is from the First Paris edition of Veduta di Roma and was published between 1800-1807Giovanni Battista Piranesi was one of the leading figures in the development of the neoclassical style in the late 18th Century. As architect, archaeologist, artist, designer, collector, and antiquities dealer, he produced a series of etchings and engravings depicting the glories of ancient Rome. These fine prints served as source material for other architects and designers. He was born in Venice on the 4th October 1720. The son of a stone-mason, he was educated as an architect under his maternal uncle Matto Lucchesi and under Carlo Zucchi. In 1740 Piranesi left Venice for Rome, there he studied etching under Giuseppe Vasi. He appears to have had little success in these early years in Rome and as his father was unable to continue his allowance returned to Venice in 1744. He was soon, however, encouraged to return to Rome by Giuseppe Wagner, a successful engraver and publisher of Venice. This time he achieved success, and a constant series of works, illustrating architecture and antiquities, issued from his studio until his death in 1778. His output in etched plates is enormous (about 1000 numbers in all). While he achieved a work of magnitude in pictorial records of Roman monuments of antiquity and of the Renaissance, and gave immense archæological, antiquarian, and topographical value to this work, the artistic quality always predominates. He was fond of peopling his ruins with Callot-like figures, and \"like Callot makes great use of the swelling line\" (Hind). He had two sons and a daughter, all of whom helped him in his work and after his death carried on his publications in Rome and Paris. They were Francesco (born 1748 or 1756; died 1810), Pietro (who lived till after 1807) and Laura (born 1750). His position in Rome and in Europe after 1760 was a prominent one. He was well-known figure to the wealthy English visitors in Rome and was elected a Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries in 1757. Most of his life was passed in Rome, etching, writing, publishing, and directing a workshop in which the restoration and sale of antiques played a considerable part.He was famous for his poetic views of Rome and also his fantastic imaginary interiors. His skills, allied to his deep knowledge of archaeology, provided the substance for his Vedute (Views), a series of 135 etchings of ancient and contemporary Rome, published from 1745 onwards, which established the popular mental image of the city. Ornamenti Antichi was a collection of 110 etchings documenting large sculptural vases, together with other antiquities excavated (and in some cases created) in Italy in the 18th century. The prints were initially separately issued and sold by Piranesi over a period of several years and subsequently collected in two folio volumes, each with its own title page, in 1778. They illustrate a wide range of genuine antiquities, as well as Piranesi\'s own collections, from utilitarian objects such as cinerary urns, lamps, and sarcophagi to monumental vases. The plates in Vasi often included text by Piranesi with information about where the objects were discovered and their contemporary location, and the prints bore dedications to his patrons, colleagues, visitors and influential people. He believed absolutely in the supremacy of Roman over Greek architecture, an argument he expounded most forcefully in his Della magnificenza ed architettura dei Romani (On the Magnificence of Roman Architecture, 1761). his romanticized views and imaginary interiors had a profound effect on stage designers, painters of capricci such as Hubert Robert, and even writers: William Beckford, the author of the Gothic novel and Vathek . In the 20th century his imaginary interiors have been admired by the Surrealists . Reference: Ficacci plate 838, Image Size : 3 [Attributes: First Edition]

      . . Gumuchian 2663. - Die "Galerie Industrielle" gehört zur großen Zahl der gegen Ende des 18. Jahrhunderts aufgekommenen berufskundlichen Werken, deren Beliebtheit in Europa durch das ganze 19. Jahrhundert anhielt. Die Wurzeln dieser speziellen Gattung der Kinder- und Jugendliteratur liegen einerseits in den Idealen der Aufklärung, andererseits in der durch Comenius begründeten Tradition Lehrbücher mit einem hohen Bildanteil auszustatten. Die Bücher "sind weniger Anleitungen für zukünftige Handwerker und Berufstätige als eher Darstellungen für spätere Entscheidungsträger, die auch mit diesen Bereichen vertraut sein sollen. Intendiert ist zudem zumeist eine Aufwertung handwerklicher Arbeit im bürgerlichen Ansehen" (Klaus Ulrich Pech in Handbuch für Kinder- u. Jugenliteratur 1800-1850, Sp. 503 f.). Als Rahmenhandlung dient hier das Bedürfnis eines philantropisch veranlagten Herren, der seinen beiden fleissig studierenden Neffen die Welt der Gewerbe zeigen will. Er schickt sie systematisch zu von ihm ausgewählten Betrieben, Werkstätten etc. und vertieft dann in abendlichen Gesprächen das zuvor Gesehene. Insgesamt enthält das Werk 28 "Soirees", die jeweils untereinander verbundenen Gewerben gewidmet sind. Gezeigt werden soll hauptsächlich wie der Mensch sich die verschiedenen Naturprodukte von Erzeugnissen der Landwirtschaft bis hin zu mineralischen Rohstoffen nutzbar macht. Enthält Tafeln zu Baumwolle, Buchbinderei, Edelsteinbearbeitung, Eisenerz, Färberei, Fleisch/Milchprodukten/Küche, Gartenbau/Jagd/Fischfang, Getreide u. Brot, Glas, Hanf, Holz, Hutmacherei, Inneneinrichtung, Leder, Leinen, Münzprägung, Öl u.
