        REFLÈXIONS D'UN REFUGIÉ EN ENGLATERRE [manuscript caption title]

      [London, 1800. [102]pp. plus engraved portrait. Later green cloth, gilt leather label. Upper right quadrant of engraved portrait lightly dampstained. Edges slightly chipped and dust soiled, with several small closed tears. Light tanning and occasional foxing throughout. Primarily in two hands, with copious annotations and corrections. Very good. A unique manuscript of an unpublished work by Francis Maseres addressing the religious conduct and persecution of French Protestants, written in a scribal hand with Maseres' copious annotations and corrections. Maseres served as attorney general of Quebec from 1766 to 1769. He was active in the affairs of the province and wrote several pamphlets on the legal and political administration of Quebec. Maseres was particularly vocal in his opposition to the Quebec Act of 1774, and he became a spokesman in England for the English-speaking merchants in Quebec who supported the repeal of the Quebec Act. The controversial Act officially recognized the Roman Catholic religion and allowed the collection of tithes by the Church, substituted French for British civil law (although British criminal law was continued), left the seigneurial system unchanged, and revoked the promise of an elected assembly contained in the Royal Proclamation of 1763, instituting government by an appointed council. "Maseres arrived in Quebec in September [1766] to join the administration, headed by the newly appointed Guy Carleton, of a lightly governed province that had been ceded to Britain only in 1763; one of the judges was a ship's surgeon. The population consisted of a small community of British merchants, 'the violent gentlemen of the army' (Maseres Letters, 18), and the French Catholic majority. Maseres wrote on 19 November 1767 that he believed 'the right way of settling this province would be to take away their religion (that is, discourage it without persecution, and powerfully encourage the Protestant religion)'; at the same time the French should be left with 'their...innocent, useful and compendious laws,' which were so much to be preferred to 'the voluminous, intricate, unknown laws of England' (ibid., 578). The trouble was, as Maseres perceived, that while the treaty of 1763 had promised toleration of Catholicism 'as far as the laws of Great Britain permit,' 'the laws of England do not at all permit the exercise of the Catholic religion.' He commented, 'Tis difficult [for a Catholic people] to be well-affected to a set of governours whom they look upon as enemies of God, deserving of, and destined to, eternal damnation' (ibid., 54). His preferred solution was to produce a code of the French and English laws applicable to Quebec" - DNB. The present manuscript reflects Maseres' descendence from French Huguenots, his deeply held Protestant faith, and an historical understanding of the 17th-century persecutions of Protestants in France. Written in French, the work offers advice on the virtues needed for Huguenots living in foreign lands, particularly those ruled by the English, which must at least in part refer to the British annexation of French Canada after the end of the French and Indian War, where Maseres had sizeable experience, but more directly to the upheavals and displacements caused by the French Revolution. Throughout, Maseres exclusively refers to French Protestants as "refugiés," a term that originated with the flight of the Huguenots to England and other countries after the Edict of Nantes in 1685 (and in fact was the original use of the term "refugee"). The work is divided into chapters which discuss the historical context of French Protestantism in England, different aspects of virtuous behavior and conduct for refugees, and offers advice for specific groups of believers. The first two chapters contrast the state of England and its stance toward Protestantism upon the first arrival of the Huguenots at the end of the 17th century and during the time of Maseres' writing in the final years of the 18th century. Understandably, Maseres looks more favorably upon the current period under Anglican rule than the Catholic reign of James II. The following several sections discuss the thanks owed for the Huguenot deliverance, and the holiness and devotion that are required as a part of that thankfulness, as well as the virtues required of refugees, namely patience, modesty, and charity, and a discussion of good uses of the freedom that they now enjoy. A further three chapters attempt to dissuade French Protestants from returning to France, while also counselling them on their behavior should they choose to do so, and advising them to be tolerant of English customs and manners no matter how strange they might seem. The final four sections offer advice to three specific categories of people, politicians, military officers, and soldiers, and advise tolerance of all sinner, before Maseres closes with an lengthy prayer for refugees everywhere. A superb working manuscript of a hitherto unpublished and unknown tract by Maseres with his extensive annotations, and an interesting addition to his already prodigious body of work.

Contemporary tree calf, spines banded in gilt with gilt decoration in the compartments, red and black morocco labels to spines, board edges gilt. Engraved frontispieces and vignettes. Ownership inscription dating to 1802 to front free endpaper of all volumes.

An excellent set. A late 18th-century edition of one of the first British periodicals, originally published daily in 1711 and 1712. Appealing to the growing numbers of middle class traders and shop keepers in London, Joseph Addison (1672–1719) estimated it to have been read by a tenth of the city's population, primarily in coffee shops. The content was innovative and made the gentlemanly culture of letters accessible to a wide audience for the first time. "The title became one of the most famous in the annals of publishing" (ODNB).

With engraved frontispiece, 16 engraved plates and some woodcut initials. Contemporary vellum.

      Howgego, Invented narratives V1; VD 17 39:131551R; cf. Howgego, to 1800 K28 (Thomas Smith). First edition of the German translation of the utopian novel Histoire des Sevarambes (History of the Sevarambians) by the French writer Denis Vairasse (ca. 1635-1700). It describes an imaginary journey to Australia and gives the history of the people living there, in the style of Thomas Moore's Utopia. It tells the story from the perspective of one Captain Siden [Denis], whose ship discovers the great kingdom Sevarambia. Presented in the manner of the contemporary geographical and anthropological works, the book provides a direct criticism of imposed religions, in particular attacking 17th-century Catholicism (Vairasse himself was a Protestant). Remarkably, this edition also includes the first German translation of Thomas Smith's account of slavery in Africa, in the original English entitled The adventures of an English merchant, taken prisoner by the Turks of Algiers, and carried into the inland countries of Africa.Title-page and last two pages frayed along the margins and partly torn, 5 leaves (2B2-4 and 2C1-2) sophisticated from another copy of the same edition, with smaller margins, and some minor foxing. Binding stained, worn and slightly damaged along the extremities. Overall in good condition.

Official report of the committee appointed to deal with the expeditions in search of the British Royal Navy officer and explorer John Franklin (1786-1847) "and whether everything was done by them to carry into effect their instructions, ..." (p. III). John Franklin left Britain with 2 ships in 1845 to find a northwest passage. When the party hadn't returned after two years, many expeditions in search of Franklin and his crew followed. The present publication deals with the two major expeditions of 1850. The first volume contains numerous letters to and from the captains of these expeditions, Captain Austin and Captain Penny, as well as interviews with them and members of their crew. The second and third volume describe the two search expeditions, whose captains kept in contact with each other during their journey. The volumes contain numerous letters by both captains, as well as valuable day by day journals of their proceedings. The third volume is often considered to be the most valuable, since it contains new information acquired by the above mentioned expeditions but also others, including Richard Collinson's expedition to the Bering Strait. Austin and Penny found out that Franklin's party had wintered at Beechey Island in 1845-1846.With library stamps. In very good condition, only slightly browned and with small tears in the margins of a few folding maps.

        An extensive and unique collection of photographs taken in the months immediately following the detonation of atomic bombs over Hiroshima and Nagasaki

      They illustrate the plight of hibakusha ("explosion-affected people"), and the immediate treatments and medical research undertaken to study phenomena never before seen nor imagined. The explosion at Hiroshima vaporized 50,000 people; in Nagasaki, at a temperature of 3900 °C, between 30,000 and 75,000 inhabitants perished in an instant. The lasting medical trauma, graphically depicted in the present photographs, came in the days and the weeks after. We see the survivors suffering from burns, the onset of radiation sickness and malnutrition, with clothing seared to their bodies. First Japanese, then American physicians studied the unparalleled misery inflicted on the human body with experimental treatments and dissections. These photographs show their desperate race to understand and confront the first and only nuclear catastrophes the world has yet seen. Many of the most iconic images of this event are present in this collection. These photographs provide a vivid first-hand account of some of humanity's most horrific days and the ensuing medical crisis which took the lives of many more. Most of the more than 1800 photographs are preserved in three original binders. 216 photographs, most of which are larger format, are housed in two modern binders. The majority of the photos record the wounds of those both alive and dead. Stunned by the power of the nuclear devices, doctors and medical researchers captured the suffering with these photographs. First-responders witnessed thousands of victims stricken by ailments for which preparation was impossible. The more than 1800 images focus on the doctors' efforts and the more harrowing case histories. There are also a number of photographs which depict human dissections through which medical professionals hoped to better understand the impact of such extreme levels of radiation. There are a number of microscopic photographs of skin, kidneys, bones, brain, thyroid, uterus, spleen, and testicles. The photographs show dying parents and children and are a vivid record of the graphic scenes following the atomic explosion. The first binder - labelled "A" on the spine - contains about 950 small format photographs of several sizes on 96 sheets (and enlarged versions; a few are loose or missing), almost all of which have hand-written captions. About two-thirds of the photographs were taken by Shunkichi Kikuchi (1916-90) and the remaining third by Shigeo Hayashi (1918-2002) during the days of 1-20 October 1945. The two were famous photographers engaged by the Japanese government (as members of a survey team dispatched by the Special Committee for the Investigation of A-Bomb Damages, Scientific Research Council of Japan, Ministry of Education) to document the unique medical effects of the explosions at both Hiroshima and Nagasaki. The photographs in this binder depict the explosion's impact on Hiroshima and its buildings; on its inhabitants and their multitude of health problems; and on the ecology of the city. Many of the pictures are concerned with the immediate medical care provided to survivors, as well as dissections of those who had succumbed to radiation poisoning and burns. There are about a dozen more small prints tipped into this binder which focus on the effects of extreme radiation exposure. On the backs of the sheets are details of the places of exposure to radiation, direction of the exposure, what clothes the victims were wearing, the history of the illnesses caused by radiation exposure, and the classification of burns (and, in the process, creating a new term genbaku-sho [in trans.: "atomic bomb syndrome"].). The notes amount to extended case histories of the patients. The names of patients are given as well as how far they were from "ground zero." There are also a number of photographs depicting structural damage. At the end of the binder is a series of 30 photographs (one is missing) forming a panoramic view of the entire destroyed city. Binder B is concerned with Nagasaki; the c. 525 photographs of various sizes, were taken by Hayashi, Kikuchi, and another photographer, Shigeru Miki. These photographs are mostly concerned with the physical destruction of Nagasaki. There are pictures of bones lying on the streets, a marker at "ground zero," irradiated trees and other vegetation, a destroyed train at Urakami Station, interiors of destroyed schools and factories, damaged gas works, the ruined Immaculate Conception Cathedral, half-destroyed shrine gates, flattened residential areas, the Nagasaki Medical Center, signs with messages left by survivors hoping to find family members, survivors with their names, etc. The third and final original binder is concerned with the Japanese efforts to produce a documentary movie about the two nuclear explosions. There are a number of photographs of burns, corpses, scenes of medical treatments, devastated landscapes, patients suffering from radiation exposure, excavations, researchers using Geiger counters, etc. Prof. Hitoshi Miyake, a member of the Armed Forces Joint Commission for Investigating Effects of the Atomic Bomb in Japan (established in Sept. 1945), took a number of microscopic pictures of damaged organs; they are included here. There are additional photographs by Yosuke Yamahata, Kenichi Kimura, and Masami Onuka. Much of the Japanese research into the effects of the nuclear explosions was suppressed at the direction of General Douglas MacArthur. We believe this is a unique and rare archive depicting one of the most devastating man-made catastrophes.

        An Atlas to Guthrie's Geographical Grammar

      - A leather bound collection of around 28 maps/plates most of which are double paged and some folding out as well. All appear present judging by the contents list and helpful light pencilled notes of a previous owner who has obviously collated the maps. Leather spine and corners and paper covered boards. Much of the leather and paper has been quite severely rubbed away and the front board is loose, having had an attempted repair at some point in its history. The front board has become detached. Owner inscription of August 1800 in neat ink at the top edge of the front end paper looks to be original and authentic commensurate with look and age of the book. The Title page, if indeed there ever was one, is possibly absent. That said the title is above the contets page so perhaps this is all there ever was. The maps appear to have been hand coloured to emphasize the countries' borders, probably at the time of publication by the look of it. In all a decent example of a very scarce and collectable atlas.

The town received its name in 1836 after the Highlands of Scotland. Zschokke Street, which has the same name today, was named after the German, later Swiss author and reformer, Johann Heinrich Daniel Zschokke (1771-1848). Minor damage to the cardboard at the corners. Some foxing and stains on the photographs and the cardboard. Overall in very good condition. Vintage albumen silver prints mounted on cardboard with printed title.

        La Corveta Atrevida entre Bancas de nieve la Noche del 28, de Enero de 1794, estando en Latitud S. 52º 13' y Longitud 42º 7' Ocidental de Cadiz

      1800 - Extremely rare plate showing the path of the Malaspina expedition through the Strait of Magellan N.d. [c.1800]. Madrid. Aquatint. 335 x 510 mm. 2,400 $ One of the few available works depicting the five-year scientific expedition of Spanish naval officer Allesandro Malaspina. In that exploration Malaspina and Jose de Bustamente commanded two frigates of approximately 118 feet in length, the Descubierta and the Atrevida and departed from Cadiz, Spain on July 30, 1789. The expedition sailed through the Pacific Ocean, exploring and mapping much of the west coast of the Americas from Cape Horn to the Gulf of Alaska, crossing to Guam and the Philippines, and stopped in both New Zealand and Australia. The view shows the corvette Atrevida navigating between icebergs at night. The expedition carried aboard some of Spain's top scientists, as well as at least three artists: Brambila, Jose Guio, and Tomas de Suria. This intaglio plate shows the Atrevida among large ice flows. Map coordinates are based on a Prime Meridian in Cadiz, Spain but the the location is somewhere very near the Malvinas (Falkland Islands), and by the stated date of 1794 we know this was the second-to-last stop of the 62 month voyage. Last known sale of this engraving was in 1992. Only two examples are found on the Internet, one at the National Maritime Museum, Greenwich, London.

        Ezo no Kuni Zenzu. Complete Map of Ezo].

      (circa1800). - Large coloured manuscript map of Ezo, modern day Hokkaido, showing the northeastern tip of Honshu, Manchuria as a large landmass along the lower border, and the island of Sakhalin. The Russian territory of Kamchatska is also shown. 50.5 x 83.5cm. Folds into plain paper covers measuring 25.5 x 17cm, card folder worn and insect damaged. Some scattered insect damage but overall a good copy. This map is an "underground" manuscript copy of one of the five maps published to accompany the highly controversial Japanese book 'Sangoku tsüran zusetsu' by Hayashi Shihei. Published in 1785 this work described the geography and customs of three countries - Kankoku (Korea), Yezo or Ezo (present day Hokkaido), and Ryükyü (present day Okinawa). At the time of its publication Ha Yezo was only partially occupied by the Tokugawa government and although from 1609 Ryükyü was in reality under the control of the Shimazu clan in Satsuma (present Kagoshima Prefecture), the Shimazu clan allowed it to be an independent country superficially. In his notes on this map of Ezo or Hokkaido, Hayashi discusses the sea lanes indicated by dotted lines and notes "Since, in recent years, men of Orosha [Russians] have taken possession of the territory east of Tartary, this land is called Orosha, or Kamusasuka. Also since the Russians all wear red coats, the residents of Ezo call it Red Ezo in their dialect." Following the publication of 'Sangoku tsüran zusetsu' the authorities ordered the banning of the publication and the destruction of the woodblocks used to print the book and maps. Hayashi Shihei was imprisoned as his work was regarded as an offence against Japan's seclusion policies of the time. He died the following year. However Japanese interest in the outside world, and Hayashi Shihei's work continued throughout the Edo period and although very few copies of the published work were in existence "underground" manuscript copies were made and passed around among trusted friends.

        Le dragon rouge, ou l'art de commander les esprits célestes, aériens, terrestres, infernaux avec le vrai secret de faire parler les morts; de gagner toutes les fois qu'on met aux loteries; de découvrir les Trésors, etc. etc. 1521

      1800 - Dans sa brochure d'origine Un volume in-16 (137x83 mm), 72 pages Dos abimé L'une des toutes premières éditions de ce célèbre grimoire de magie. S'inspirant fortement des Clavicules de Salomon et bien qu'antidateé, soit de 1521 soit de 1522, ce n'est en fait qu'à la fin du XVIII° ou au début du XIX° siècle qu'est publié pour la première fois le "Dragon Rouge". Certainement en raison de la rareté des toutes premières éditions, mais aussi en l'absence de marque d'éditeur de lieu d'impression, les bibliographes n'ont pas démêlé la chronologie ni même simplement décrit avec précision les différents tirages. Yve-Plessis, Guaita, Dorbon et même Coumont pourtant habituellement plus détaillé brillent par l'absence de collation pour les premières éditions de cet ouvrage. Pour notre part, d'après les exemplaires que nous avons pu voir passer et ceux recensés dans les bibliothèques publiques, nous avons pu identifiés plusieurs éditions différentes (ou tirage différents). Tout d'abord, avec le titre identique à notre exemplaire, mais sans fleuron à la page de titre, au frontispice, le "Diable" avec un anneau autour du coup et un autre dans la main droite, au verso du frontispice un faux titre et 107 pages. Un autre exemplaire avec le frontispice identique au notre, le titre avec un seul "etc." à la fin et avec la date 1522, sans fleuron de titre . 107 pages. Un autre : avec le titre se terminant par "etc., etc.," et 1522. Page de titre et frontispice en noir et non en rouge, fleuron au titre différent du notre et frontispice quasiment identique (sans l'arbrisseau), en 95 pages. Notre exemplaire est bien complet en 72 pages, le texte est identique mais avec une police de caractère plus petite, c'est le seul exemplaire dont nous avons connaissance avec ces caractéristiques. Le Dragon Rouge un grimoire satanique, incontestablement un chef-d&#146;&#156;uvre en matière de magie noire, d'après Eliphas Levi.

Cet essai, l&#146;un des plus mystérieux qu&#146;il composa, lui fut inspiré par la lecture du &#145;De signatura rerum&#146; de Jakob Böhme "L'auteur cherche à atteindre la raison la plus profonde de chacune des choses qui frappent nos regards, soit dans l'ordre de la nature, soit même dans celui des m&#156;urs, des coutumes, etc." (Franck, &#145;Dictionnaire des sciences philosophiques&#146;, 1849, IV, p. 129). "Il déclare que l'homme, créé à l'image et à la ressemblance de Dieu, peut pénétrer au sein de l'Etre, qui se trouve caché dans la création tout entière et qu'à cause de sa vue intérieure claire, il est capable de voir et de reconnaître les vérités de Dieu déposées dans la nature" (S. et Z.

        The ships Erebus and Terror in the Arctic]. [England?, ca. 1850?]. Oil painting on canvas (65.5 x 91 cm), showing 2 ships in a rough sea amid dangerous rocks and ice. Later mounted on another canvas and stretched over a wooden frame, with a handwritten note about the painting pasted on the back.

      - Cf. Howgego, 1800-1850, P9, R27 & F21. A mid-19th-century oil painting depicting two ships (3-masted barks) in a rough sea amid dangerous rocky and icy cliffs, mountains and outcroppings. Pasted to the back is an old slip of paper with a note (the parts of the text in parentheses are lost, but have been filled in based on an earlier transcription): "The sailing ships ('Erebus' and 'Terror') passing through the Davis Straig(ht) in 1846 [the 6 later "corrected" to 7]. It was on this expedition that Sir John Franklin discovered the North West Passage, and in which he lost his life". In fact Franklin sailed these two ships through Davis Strait in 1845, passed on through Lancaster Sound in search of a Northwest Passage and spent the winter on Beechey Island. In 1846 he and his expedition made their way through (using the modern names) Peel Sound and Franklin Strait into McClintock Channel, where they got caught in the ice near King William Island. Most of the crew died there, including Franklin in 1847. A few made it on foot to the mainland but were unable to reach any outpost. The last died in 1848. Since no one who saw the ships in these waters survived, the anonymous artist who made the present painting appears to have turned to an 1847 painting of the same ships by John Wilson Carmichael in London, though he did not copy it. Carmichael had earlier made a drawing of an expedition in search of the Northwest Passage by William Edward Parry (who made three expeditions in the years 1819 to 1825, each with two ships), but in 1847 he used parts of his existing Arctic scene as models for the composition of a new painting showing an Antarctic scene of James Clark Ross's voyage with the ships Erebus and Terror in 1842: "'Erebus' and 'Terror' in the Antarctic". Carmichael's drawing and painting survive at the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich. The central ship in the present painting follows that in Carmichael's painting quite closely and the second ship more distantly. The rocks and ice are similar in general appearance and arrangement but quite different in detail.With some restorations along the edges of the painting and a small scuffmark near the foot toward the left, but generally in good condition.

        Narrative of Mons. de Chaumereix, a naval officer, who escaped from the massacres of Aurai & Vannes, after the expedition of Quiberon. To which are added, some observations on the public opinion in Brittany. Translated from the French, by the Rev. Charles Lefebvre, Teacher of the French Language, Witton-Le-Wear.

      Sunderland: printed for the translator by James Graham, and sold by L. Pennington, Durham; William Charnley, Newcastle; W. Barnes, North Shields; and W. Elstob, Stockton. 1800 - 50pp. 8vo. Uncut; some foxing & occasional browning. Disbound. ESTC T114266, BL and York University only. During the French Revolution the peasants in the department of Vendée remained Royalist and first rose against the revolutionary National Convention in 1793. On June 27, 1795, a British fleet landed 3,600 French émigrés on the Quiberon Peninsula, Brittany, where they joined thousands of other Royalists. But they had no positive leadership, and the Revolutionary army sent to the region destroyed the Vendée &apos;army&apos; in a series of engagements. About 700 rebels were identified as émigrés and summarily executed; 1,800 returned to England, including Chaumareix who although imprisoned managed to escape and evaded recapture until 20th September when he reached the English squadron under Sir John Warren. His account was first published in London in 1795, although with a different title wording, and this may be a variant translation. The translator Charles Lefebvre was most likely a French émigré, stirred to have his own version printed and published locally.
