This he proceded to do, going on to Turkey, Greece, Crete and the Archipelago... He returned to Manoncourt in 1780 where he cultivated many new vegatables and herbs, his interest in natural history is evident from the number of plates in the above work showing plants and fish; indeed Sonnini collaborated with Buffon on an edition of the latter's works.

"... 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.

      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.

[1], 4to (265 x 185mm), unbound, excellent An apparently unrecorded version of this extraordinary diatribe, usually printed under the title &#145;The High German Doctor&#146;s Speech&#146;, first in about 1760. Of the three printings listed in ESTC all are recorded in single copies only (although Wellcome have two of them as well). Chamber&#146;s Book of Days attributes this speech to Joseph Haines, the actor, following the example of Rochester, but his dates (d. 1701) are difficult to square with the date of the first publication of Van Clauterbank&#146;s extravagant oration.This is a positively Rabelasian spoof of a Quack&#146;s self-promotional puffery. Only a page in length, it is densely printed, and takes a while to read through, the time lengthened by fits of laughter and gasps of amazement. The exotic Van Clauterbank can cure everything, including those who have had their brains beaten out, and those decapitated, but the main object of his cures are achieved by &#145;the chiefest antipudenda gregagarian specific in Venus&#146;s regalia.&#146; Famous patients restored to complete health include Prester John&#146;s godmother (&#145;a tremendous dolor about the os sacrum&#146;), and &#145;one hundred and fifty eunuchs in the seignior&#146;s seraglio&#146; were restored to virility &#145;and the comforts of generation.&#146; In fact, since the cure of ailments in Venus&#146;s regalia are so curable and are accomplished &#145;with as much pleasure as the same was contracted . it is worth any person&#146;s while to get this modish distemper once a fortnight.&#146;

Bel exemplaire. Edition originale de chacun des volumes, ce qui n'est pas si courant. Collection complète de ce quasi-périodique, avec ses 36 numéros, d'août 1798 à mars 1800.

Ceci dit, c'est l'un des ouvrages les mieux rédigés et les plus pertinents qui ait été composé sur la politique tant intérieure qu'extérieure du Directoire. Les derniers numéros contiennent une analyse du 18 brumaire et des débuts du Consulat. Mais la mort empêcha Mallet du Pan d'en poursuivre la rédaction. Hatin, p. 282. Cioranescu, XVIII, 42081.

      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.

        Systeme des Connaissances Chimiques, et de leurs applications aux phénomènes de la nature et de l'art.

      Paris, An IX-X 1800-01. - First Octavo edition, published simultaneously with an edition in quarto format. Contemporary vellum, gilt lettered spine-labels, 10 volumes in 5. With the stamped signatures of Fourcroy and the publisher on verso of titles for authentication purposes, and the publisher's voucher for the separately published index tipped in Volume I. Institutional stamps on titles, generally very clean. Fourcroy's magnum opus. Fourcroy was one of the earliest converts to the views of the modern chemist Antoine Lavoisier, which he diffused through his own extensive writings. However, Fourcroy was as much a teacher as he was an investigator, and his name appears on a large number of chemical and physiological memoirs. 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.
