Folio (31 x 21 cm). Treaty between Russia and Prussia in Russian and French in 2 parallel columns in cyrillic (left) and roman (right) types. Side stitched, with the spine covered in contemporary blue-grey paper.

      Cf. KVK & WorldCat (similar treaty of 16/28 July 1800); not in G.F. von Martens, Recueil des principaux traités ... Only copy located of the first and only edition, in Russian and French, of a defensive alliance concluded at St Petersburg between Tsarina Catherine the Great of Russia and Friedrich Wilhelm II, Frederick the Great's successor as King of Prussia, on 7 August 1792 (27 July by the Julian calendar used in Russia until the Revolution) following the Polish-Russian War. The Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth, once one of the largest and most powerful states in Europe, had been in decline since 1648 and had become largely subservient to Russia. It asserted greater independence with its new constitution of 3 May 1791, not only in opposition to Catherine the Great and the King of Prussia, but also to the conservative Polish noblemen, who feared a Revolution following the French example. They formed the pro-Russian Targowica Confederation in January 1792, and invited Catherine to intervene. The resulting Polish-Russian War (18 May to 27 July 1792) forced the King of Poland to join the Targowica Confederation.The present treaty allied Russia and Prussia, who both hoped to keep Poland as weak as possible, and it led to the second partition of Poland in 1793, when Russia and Prussia each annexed a large chunk of Poland's territory. The third partition in 1795 was to dissolve the Polish state entirely. While the treaty itself is well-known, the present first and only printed edition appears to be unrecorded, but a printed edition of the revised treaty of 16/28 July 1800, which added one article and revised several, survives at the Niedersächische S & UB Göttingen. The present publication opens with a formal declaration by Catherine the Great and an introduction to the treaty itself, followed by the XIV numbered articles of the treaty. The treaty is signed by Counts Johann von Ostermann and (Karl?) von der Goltz for Prussia and Count Alexander Bezborodko and his assistant and future successor Arkady Morkov for Russia, and ratified by Catharine the Great from St Petersburg, 10 September 1792.In very good condition, with the first and last page slightly dirty (mostly in the margin) and a small marginal chip in the corner of the first 2 leaves, and with generous margins. Only known copy of the first and only edition (in Russian and French) of an important 1792 treaty.

        Nouvelle Carte Geographique et Historique del' Italie la Savoje. Le Piemont les Republiques Cisalpine, et Ligurienes

      Venezia 1800 - Questa rarissima carta appartiene ad progetto di atlante, mai portato a compimento, della così denominata Società Calcografia, una semplice operazione commerciale tra i due editori leader del mercato veneto del XVIII secolo, Antonio Zatta e Giuseppe Antonio Remondini. Il termine Società Calcografica viene da noi dedotto dalla carta del mondo presente in questa raccolta, che nel cartiglio in basso reca l’iscrizione in lingua francese "à Venise Chez la Societè Chalcographique 1799". Come detto il progetto non venne mai portato a compimento; nessun atlante contenente queste mappe, con indice e frontespizio, è infatti noto alle bibliografie. E’ probabile pertanto che le carte venissero vendute singolarmente o in piccole raccolte personalizzate. Le mappe inserite nella raccolta derivano in parte da lastre di Paolo e Francesco Santini, usate da Remondini nel "Atlas Universelle" del 1782/4 ed in parte da lastre edite da Antonio Zatta per il "Nuovo Atlante" pubblicato nel 1796. Le mappe del Santini sono abilmente arricchite, tramite un sistema di piccole lastre mascherate che sono chiaramente visibili sulle mappe per il segno calcografico, da grandi cartigli nel classico stile dello Zatta, incisi dai suoi stretti collaboratori Pasquali, Zuliani e Pitteri. I cartigli spesso contengono le descrizioni storiche, e le mappe furono probabilmente realizzate per illustrare i notevoli cambiamenti geografici che subì la penisola durante il periodo napoleonico. Datate tra il 1795 ed il 1805 sono principalmente dedicate ad illustrare la penisola, sebbene esistano carte di molte regioni europee e dei continenti. La recente bibliografia Terre di Langobardia ne descrive alcune raffiguranti la Repubblica Cisalpina, descrivendole come parte del "Atlas très Nouveau" del solo Remondini, edito a partire dal 1800. La nostra opinione è che i due editori collaborarono in questo progetto almeno fino alla morte di Antonio Zatta (1804), e che il progetto di un atlante completo non fu mai portato a termine anche per la morte di Giuseppe Antonio Remondini (1811). Personalmente sono a conoscenza di 61 carte di questo progetto. Incisione in rame, finemente colorata da mano coeva, in ottimo stato di conservazione. This very rare map belongs to a never finished project for the atlas of the so called Società Calcografia, a simple commercial trade realized by the two main Venetian publishers of the XVIII century, Antonio Zatta and Giuseppe Antonio Remondini. The term Società Calcografica has been deduced from the map of the world, which is part of the collection and bears in the lower cartouche the French writing "à Venise Chez la Societè Chalcographique 1799". As already stated, the project was never finished for no atlas containing these maps has ever been listed in any bibliography. Very likely, then, the maps have been sold individually, or maybe as part of smaller, custom collections. The maps of the collection derive from Paolo and Francesco Santini’s plates, used by Remondini in his 1782/4 "Atlas Universelle", and from the plates of Antonio Zatta’s "Nuovo Atlante", published in 1796. Santini’s maps have been beautifully enriched, using the system of small, masked plates which can be perceived through the platemarks on the paper, with great cartouches according to the classical style of Zatta and have been probably engraved by the members of his staff, Pasquali, Zuliani and Pitteri. The cartouches bear very often historical descriptions and maybe the maps have been realized to depict the great geographic changes of the peninsula during the Napoleonic period. The modern bibliography Terre di Langobardia describes some of the maps depicting the Repubblica Cisalpina, presenting them as part of Remondini’s "Atlas très Nouveau", which was printed starting from 1800. In our opinion, the two publishers worked together to the realization of the project until Antonio Zatta died (1804), and the complete atlas was never finished because Giuseppe Antonio Remondini also died

        Reise nach Palästina in den Jahren von 1749 bis 1752. auf Befehl ihro Majestät der Königinn von Schweden herausgegeben vond Carl Linnäus aus em Schwedischen.Rostock, Johann Christian Koppe, 1762 (colophon: Leipzig, Johann Gottlob Immanuel Breitkopf, 1761). 8vo. With woodcut tailpieces. Contemporary half vellum.

      - Bibl. Palaestinensis 472; Howgego, to 1800, H33; cf. Atabey 564 (English edition); Blackmer 668 (French edition); Hage Chahine, 2134 (French edition); not in VD18. First edition of the German translation of a travelogue and zoological work, originally written in Latin by the Swedish zoologist and botanist Friedrich Hasselquist (1722-1752) and published posthumously by the celebrated naturalist Carl Linnaeus (1707-1778). "In 1749 Hasselquist set off on a botanical expedition to the Middle East. Sailing from Stockholm . he arrived at Izmir (= Smyrna, in Turkey) where he spent the winter of 1749-1750 exploring the hinterland. In March 1750 he took a trip into the interior of Turkey, and afterwards sailed for Egypt . he proceeded through Palestine and Syria, visited Cyprus, Rhodes and Chios, and then returned to Izmir" (Howgego). The work can be divided into two parts. The first part consists of a chronological journal, followed by 14 letters from Hasselquist to his tutor Linnaeus. The second part contains a zoological, botanical and mineralogical description of the area, starting with the four-footed animals, followed by birds, amphibians, fish, insects, plants and stones. Especially his descriptions of fishes in the Nile are very valuable. The work concludes with the materia medica of the Middle East. Hasselquist was already sick when he wrote and died during his travels in 1752, near Izmir. In 1757 the work was posthumously published by Linnaeus, entitled Iter Palaestinum, "who described it as being full of fresh, genuine and precise observations: "So admirable a travel journal has never before appeared."." (Blackmer).With an inscription on flyleaf from E. Atkinsons(?), dated Jerusalem 1858, and slip with manuscript inscription pasted down on flyleaf from John R. Ruth. Slightly browned, title-page foxed, a few notations and underlining in pencil, and a small waterstain on page 259. Binding rubbed along the extremities, sides rubbed. Overall a very good copy.

      - Howgego, to 1800, A 90; cf. Bosch 52; Maggs, Bibl. Brasiliensis 104; not in Borba de Moraes. Second edition of an extensive history of the reign of King João (John) III of Portugal (1502-1557), written by Francisco d'Andrada (1540-1614). During his rule, Portuguese possessions were extended in Asia, and in the New World through the Portuguese colonization of Brazil. The majority of the 419 chapters deal with Portugal's overseas possessions and trading posts in India (Diu, Goa, Chaul, Calicut), China, Ceylon, the Moluccas, the Middle East (Ormuz, Suez), Africa (Zanzibar, Ethiopia, Mozambique), Brazil, etc. The chapters discuss newly acquired lands, the governors of the regions, voyages and travels, wars and sieges, and trade, Portugal being one of the first countries with trading posts in China and Japan. Though João III's reign was marked by the introduction of the inquisition in Portugal from 1536 onwards, the present publication only briefly deals with the subject. Some other chapters deal with Jesuit missions to the east.With a few occasional small spots, otherwise in good condition, wholly untrimmed and most of the bolts in the third and fourth volumes unopened.

      Cox II, p. 31; Ferguson 300; Hill 304; Howego, to 1800, V13; Sabin 98444. First edition of the German translation by Johann Friedrich Wilhelm Herbst of George Vancouver's famous account of his exploration of the northwest coast of America and east coast of Asia. "This voyage became one of the most important made in the interests of geographical knowledge" (Hill). George Vancouver (1757-1798), who had participated in the second and third voyages of James Cook, was commissioned by the English monarch to continue the exploration of the northwest coast of America. He was made commander of a grand-scale expedition to reclaim Britain's rights resulting from the Nootka Convention, at Nootka Sound, to examine thoroughly the south coast in order to find a possible passage to the Atlantic. Vancouver put an end to the delusion that the subarctic seas in the direction of Greenland could be reached from Nootka Sound or any of the inlets in its vicinity and his description of the Port of San Francisco and the coasts of California in Spanish hands is most interesting. "This work ranks with the voyages of Cook and La Pérouse among the most important of the 18th and 19th centuries" (Cox). In very good condition, only slightly browned. Bindings rubbed along the extremities, only minor damage to the foot of the spine of the second volume, otherwise very good.

Volume premier. | Auswahl von Pflanzen und Gesträuchen. Mit einer Anleitung zu ihrer Wartung. Den Liebhabern der Pflanzenkunde und Gartenfreunden zur Bildung ihres Geschmacks gewidmet. Erster Band [all published].Zürich, Johann Heinrich Füssli, Sohn, 1796-1798. 3 parts. 4to. With 1 general title-page in French and 1 in German, 27 hand-coloured unnumbered engraved plates, each accompanied by a detailed botanical description (2 or 3 pages in French and the same in German). Each part in the original publisher's letterpress-printed blue paper wrappers, with the part-title in French and German on the front wrapper and the content on the inside front (in French) and back (in German) wrapper, and with the original tissue guard leaves before each plate.

      Arnold Arboretum I, p. 158; Bradley I, p. 264; Hunt Lib. 720 note; Nissen, BBI 360; WorldCat (6 copies incl. at least 2 incompl. & 1 in an 1800 reissue). Rare first and only edition, in the original publisher's wrappers as issued in three parts, of a lovely series of 27 hand-coloured botanical plates, each plate showing a single species with the Latin name at the head and some detail drawings. Each is accompanied by detailed botanical information in French and German. It covers a wide variety of flowering plants, including woody bushes and trees, uncommon garden plants and some exotic species. Among them are a dwarf bitter orange (Citrus aurantium pygmaeum) and an American tulip tree (Liriodendron tulipifera). The author's name appears nowhere in the book, but he signed the avant-propos/Vorbericht "C**.", 1 August 1796, and he has been identified as Joseph Philippe de Clairville (1742-1830), a French-born Swiss botanist and co-founder of the Schweizer naturforschende Gesellschaft. The beautiful plates were drawn and executed by the well-known Swiss painter and poet Johann Rudolf Schellenberg (1740-1806), author and illustrator of many entomological works. The plates are unsigned, but Clairville refers to Schellenberg in his avant-propos. We have found no record of a copy preserved in the original three parts and no doubt for this reason the work is confusingly described in the literature. Part 3 concludes with two tables of contents (1 in French and 1 in German) for the entire first volume, showing that it was complete with the present 27 species. No more was ever published. While Clairville is a well-known botanist, this publication has been almost entirely overlooked in the botanical literature and several of the few copies located are incomplete. A few lines of text were written on one tissue guard leaf in a nineteenth-century hand (now difficult to read), and an occasional recent pencilled note adds some botanical names. With the text leaves of part 1 foxed, but otherwise in very good condition (most of the plates fine) and with the colours fresh and bright, with only one or two small spots in the text and an occasional minor marginal defect. The manuscript note on 1 tissue guard has offset faintly on the facing text page. Parts 2 and 3 are wholly untrimmed and part 1 only slightly trimmed. The spines and some edges of the wrappers are tattered and the sewing is somewhat loose, so that one bifolium has detached, but the wrappers are otherwise in good condition. A rare and beautiful flower-book with 27 hand-coloured plates.

      Howgego, to 1800, A 90; cf. Bosch 52; Maggs, Bibl. Brasiliensis 104; not in Borba de Moraes. Second edition of an extensive history of the reign of King João (John) III of Portugal (1502-1557), written by Francisco d'Andrada (1540-1614). During his rule, Portuguese possessions were extended in Asia, and in the New World through the Portuguese colonization of Brazil. The majority of the 419 chapters deal with Portugal's overseas possessions and trading posts in India (Diu, Goa, Chaul, Calicut), China, Ceylon, the Moluccas, the Middle East (Ormuz, Suez), Africa (Zanzibar, Ethiopia, Mozambique), Brazil, etc. The chapters discuss newly acquired lands, the governors of the regions, voyages and travels, wars and sieges, and trade, Portugal being one of the first countries with trading posts in China and Japan. Though João III's reign was marked by the introduction of the inquisition in Portugal from 1536 onwards, the present publication only briefly deals with the subject. Some other chapters deal with Jesuit missions to the east.With a few occasional small spots, otherwise in good condition, wholly untrimmed and most of the bolts in the third and fourth volumes unopened. Paper wrappers soiled and worn.

        Reise nach Palästina in den Jahren von 1749 bis 1752. auf Befehl ihro Majestät der Königinn von Schweden herausgegeben vond Carl Linnäus aus em Schwedischen.Rostock, Johann Christian Koppe, 1762 (colophon: Leipzig, Johann Gottlob Immanuel Breitkopf, 1761). 8vo. With woodcut tailpieces. Contemporary half vellum.

      Bibl. Palaestinensis 472; Howgego, to 1800, H33; cf. Atabey 564 (English edition); Blackmer 668 (French edition); Hage Chahine, 2134 (French edition); not in VD18. First edition of the German translation of a travelogue and zoological work, originally written in Latin by the Swedish zoologist and botanist Friedrich Hasselquist (1722-1752) and published posthumously by the celebrated naturalist Carl Linnaeus (1707-1778). "In 1749 Hasselquist set off on a botanical expedition to the Middle East. Sailing from Stockholm ... he arrived at Izmir (= Smyrna, in Turkey) where he spent the winter of 1749-1750 exploring the hinterland. In March 1750 he took a trip into the interior of Turkey, and afterwards sailed for Egypt ... he proceeded through Palestine and Syria, visited Cyprus, Rhodes and Chios, and then returned to Izmir" (Howgego). The work can be divided into two parts. The first part consists of a chronological journal, followed by 14 letters from Hasselquist to his tutor Linnaeus. The second part contains a zoological, botanical and mineralogical description of the area, starting with the four-footed animals, followed by birds, amphibians, fish, insects, plants and stones. Especially his descriptions of fishes in the Nile are very valuable. The work concludes with the materia medica of the Middle East. Hasselquist was already sick when he wrote and died during his travels in 1752, near Izmir. In 1757 the work was posthumously published by Linnaeus, entitled Iter Palaestinum, "who described it as being full of fresh, genuine and precise observations: "So admirable a travel journal has never before appeared..."." (Blackmer).With an inscription on flyleaf from E. Atkinsons(?), dated Jerusalem 1858, and slip with manuscript inscription pasted down on flyleaf from John R. Ruth. Slightly browned, title-page foxed, a few notations and underlining in pencil, and a small waterstain on page 259. Binding rubbed along the extremities, sides rubbed. Overall a very good copy.

Indulging in a bit of license, the artist has seated Pontius Pilate to the right of the Jewish judges. Each judge holds a descriptive placard with original texts, presumably by Kling, or the Gospel of John. Kling, the presumed author was a senior official of the Lutheran Church in Regensburg.

        A collection of fourteen original watercolour studies of birds.

      Painted by the "wayward genius", whose work is valued for its accurate, delicate and lively touch. He produced superb illustrations for Williamson's 'Oriental Field Sports,' (1807), 'British Field Sports,' (1807) and others. These watercolours were part of a group commissioned by Walter Fawkes (1769-1825), a renowned collector and a close friend of J. M. W. Turner, he entertained Howitt and Turner at Farnley Hall and they accompanied him on specimen collecting expeditions on the estate. Fawkes assembled the Farnley 'Ornithological collection'.

        A Narrative of Some Extraordinary Things that Happened To Mr. Richard Giles's Children, at the Lamb, Without Lawford's-Gate, Bristol; Supposed to be the Effect of Witchcraft. By the late Mr. Henry Durbin, Chymist, who was an Eye and Ear Witness of the Facts herein related. (Never before published.) To which is added, a letter from the Rev.

      Bristol: Printed and Sold by R. Edwards: Sold also by T. Hurst and W. Baynes London; and by Hazard and Browne Bath., Bristol, London and Bath 1800 - Hardcover. Large octavo. (Approx. 8 1/2 x 5 1/4 inches). 60pp. Beautiful half-leather craft binding by renowned London book-binder Bernard C. Middleton. Brown half morocco spine and tips over marbled-paper boards. Gilt rules and titling up spine between two raised bands. The first and only early edition of this significant account of the famous "haunting" of the Lamb Inn in Bristol that began in November 1761. What started with poltergeist-like incidents focussing on the children of the landlord, Richard Giles, soon escalated, with accusations that the spirit causing the phenomena was acting at the behest of a Witch from Gloucestershire, who was herself employed by an enemy of Giles'. The author of the tract, Henry Durbin, was a local druggist who personally witnessed some of the incidents, and organised an investigation which included a number of pious local notables questioning the spirit as to its actions. Within months Richard Giles took ill and died, and the spirit, who identified itself as "Malchi", informed Durbin that the man had been killed by witchcraft. Supposedly the maleficence continued until Giles' widow sought help from a "cunning woman" of Bedminster who told her what must be done to make it cease. Durbin who was involved throughout, remained convinced of the reality of the events that he described. From the collection of Dr. M. H. Coleman, with his ex-libris seal blind-stamped on the front free endpaper. A little chipping to the fore-edge of a couple of leaves due to careless opening, some pale shadowing - some sort of offsetting - to the corners of the endpapers and first and last leaves, which are also a little dust-darkened. Still a clean, crisp, VG+ copy in VG+ binding (just a little rubbing and darkening to the marbled paper of the boards). [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Le Galeopitheque roux. Galeopithecus Rufus.

      Paris. 1797-1800. Color intaglio engraving with added handcolor, image approximately 14 1/2 x 9 inches on sheet size 20 1/2 x 12 1/2 inches. Light scattered foxing, faint toning to edges; otherwise very good condition. An exquisitely detailed image of a flying lemur. Marked at top right from Histoire Naturelle des Singes et des Makis by Jean Baptiste Audebert, published between 1797-1800. This was Audebert's first individually issued publication, and he lavished attention on the plates which were printed with a color printing method he apparently devised, incorporating stipple engraving. S. Peter Dance notes in "The Art of Natural History" that "zoological art in France [had at this time] an overall uniformity and distinction that was not equalled elsewhere."
