These two engravings, the only likenesses taken directly from the life portrait, became the sources for at least fifty further versions..." (Bush, THE LIFE PORTRAITS OF THOMAS JEFFERSON, p.40).

        Icones Plantarum Japonicarum, quas in insulis Japonicis annis 1775 et 1776 collegit et descripsit...

      Uppsala, J.F. Edman, 1800-1805. Parts II-V. Folio (430 x 275mm). With 39 (of 40) engraved plates. Original printed wrappers. First edition of Thunberg's rare sequel and counterpart to his 'Flora Japonica' (1784). The copy lacks the first part published in 1794 and plate 'Polypodium hastatum' in part III. We have added a complete copy of the Japanese reprint of 1934, sothat the work can be made complete. A complete copy has 5 parts with 50 plates./This work contains some of the first Western illustrations of Japanese species, and is a landmark work, along with the 'Flora', for the Linnaean botany of Japan. Thunberg visited Japan disguised as a Dutchman. He was confined to the Dutch trading post built on a tiny artificial island, and was reduced to examining the forage plants brought from the mainland to feed the domestic animals. He was able to make only limited excursions to the mainland, but nonetheless managed to assemble a remarkable accurate picture of the Japanese flora. The 'Icones' illustrates 'inter alia' several Japanese species of 'Acer', including the highly variable 'Acer palmarum', here illustrated for the first time. This copy contains an unrecorded four-page address, in French, by Thunberg to the St. Petersburg Academy of Sciences thanking them for making him a member. It is inserted in the fourth part. Even incomplete copies are very rare. Some wrappers worn, plates in very fine impressions and uncut.//Nissen BBI, 1960; Stafleu & Cowan 14364.

        Teutsche Ornithologie oder Naturgeschichte aller Vögel Teutschlands. Herausgegeben von Borkhausen, Lichthammer und Bekker dem Jüngern.

      Damstadt, im Verlage der Herausgeber, 1800-1811. Folio (450 x 300mm). 21 parts (of 22), bound in 2 volumes. With 126 hand-coloured engraved plates. Contemporary half calf, gilt ornamented spines with 2 gilt lettered labels (slightly rubbed). A fine large copy of one of the most splendid German bird books. As usual without the last part, which was published in 1817. This final part is almost always lacking due to the interruption of publication by the Napoleonic wars. Our copy contains all the 21 printed upper wrappers to the parts. A great rarity is the title-page which is found in a few copies and here replaced by the printed wrapper to the first part. Many bibliographies consider the work complete in the first edition with 21 parts. The 22nd part was in fact the first part published of the second edition./ "... a work by which it was attempted to create a German parallel to the sumptuous ornithological works of other countries, notably of France, e.g. Levaillant's works, to which it was compared at that time ... and with which it is quite comparable on account of its beautiful plates. These were drawn, engraved, printed, and coloured, by Susemihl in co-operation with his brother, J.Th. Susemihl, and lateron his son, Eduard Susemihl" (Anker 52). "Nicht minder lobenswert ist auch die 'Teutsche Ornithologie', die Johann Conrad Susemihl gemeinsam mit seinem Bruder Johann Theodor und später mit seinen Kindern Eduard und Emilie in Darmstadt mit Hilfe eines Kreises begeisterter Naturfreunde schulf... die Tafeln, die in Stich wie Kolorit zu den Spitzenleistungen des späten Kupferstiches gehören...

"... Geoffroy published a work on the insects of the Paris area in which he used new criteria of classification: absence or presence, number, form and texture of the wings; and distribution of the various orders according to the number of tarsomeres in the tarsi. The latter criterion attracted the attention of Linnaeus, who often quoted Geoffroy." (D.S.B. V, pp. 355). The plates are finely hand-coloured. / /Nissen ZBI, 1522.

      Printed Act Signed in type by John Adams as President and Thomas Jefferson as Vice President, three pages, tall folio, on a folded sheet, February 27, 1800, titled "An Act to Further suspend the commercial intercourse between the United States and France, and the dependencies thereof."Tensions with the newly formed United States and France began on November 20, 1798, when a French warship, off the French colony island of Guadeloupe, captured an American schooner. In early 1799, Captain Thomas Trexton of the U.S.S. Constellation retaliated by capturing a French ship and the U. S. imposed an act to suspend trade between the United States and France. In 1800, Trexton again dueled with French ships and again, a trade embargo was imposed by the U. S. This crises led to what became known as the Quasi-War with France, which nearly escalated into a full-scale conflict between the former allies. Very minor toning, edges a bit rough, otherwise fine.

        Etat des pauvres, ou histoire des classes travaillantes de la soci&#142;t&#142; en Angleterre; extrait de l'ouvrage publi&#142; en anglais par Sir Morten-EdenÉpar Larochefoucauld-LiancourtÉ

      Paris: de l'Imprim&#142;rie de H. Agasse, An VIII de la R&#142;publique, [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&#141;ois Alexandre Fr&#142;d&#142;ric, Duc de la Rochefoucauld-Liancourt (1747-1827), was a liberal French peer and philanthropist. He founded the school of Arts et M&#142;tiers at Ch&#137;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]
