        Memoirs of the Different Rebellions in Ireland, from the Arrival of the English: Also, a Particular Detail of that which Broke Out the XXIIId of May, MDCCXCVIII; with the History of the Conspiracy which Prededed it, and the Characters of the Principal Actors in it. To this Edition is Added, a Concise History of the Reformation in Ireland; and Considerations on the Means of Extending its Advantages Therein.

      Dublin: Printed by Robert Marchbank, for John Milliken [etc.], 1801.. SECOND EDITION. Quarto, pp.[2] x, 636; 210 [10]. With 10 folding maps and plans. Also with a large section of appedixes and an unpaginated index. In contemporary tan full calf, recently re-backed with the original boards, and the original spine leather pasted over. Raised bands and gilt titles and decoration to spine. Gilt ruling and dentelle to fore-edges; marbled endpapers. Bookplate of the Hope Trust, 31 Moray Place, Edinburgh, to front pastedown. Internally fine, with a small shelfmark to the base of the spine, and some wear to edges, especially corners. Very good overall. Written by the otherwise unremarkable borderline-sociopath MP for Lismore, this extensive partisan history of Irish rebellions claims a significant place in the development of increasingly entrenched sectarianism in nineteenth century Ireland. The book went through several editions in its first year of publication, 1801 (also the year of the Act of Union between Great Britain and Ireland), was highly regarded by the Protestant Unionist party in the years immediately after, and even earned the author an invitation to a duel from a fellow Irish MP.

        Atala, ou Les Amours de Deux Sauvages dans le désert

      Chez Migneret, Et à l'ancienne Librairie de Dupont 1801 - Troisième édition revue et corrigée, 1 vol. in-18 reliure de l'époque demi-basane marbré, dos lisse orné à décors de lampe antique, Chez Migneret, Et à l'ancienne Librairie de Dupont, Paris, An IX (1801), xxiv-207 pp. Dans cette rare troisième édition, Chateaubriand a inséré un "Avis sur la présente édition", une "Lettre publiée dans le Journal des Débats et dans le Publiciste" et une longue Préface. Par comparaison avec notre autre exemplaire de la troisième édition, on peut apercevoir qu'au sein d'une même édition des modifications typographiques ou de fond ont été apportées. Ainsi, dès la page "vi", cet exemplaire contient le texte suivant : "C'est sur la dernière phrase de cette apostrophe, que tombe la remarque du critique" ; dans l'autre version, on peut lire : "C'est la dernière phrase de cette apostrophe, qui a excité la gaîté de la Décade". Des modifications typographiques (dans une citation en grec, ou dans la pagination des premiers feuillets), il semble ressortir nettement que la présente version de la troisième édition est antérieure à celle de l'autre exemplaire. Bon état (coins frottés, le douzième cahier a été relié entre les cahiers 9 et 10) pour cet exemplaire en stricte reliure du temps de cette importante édition, qui révèle l'attention permanente que Chateaubriand portait au polissage de son oeuvre.

        The Punishments of China, Illustrated by Twenty-Two Engravings: with Explanations in English and French.

      - London: printed for William Miller.by W. Bulmer and Co., 1801. Folio, [vi], Frontispiece and 21 hand-colored stipple engravings each with a single leaf of text printed on both sides in English and French. Full red straight-grain morocco, with roll-tooled panels in gilt and blind. Backstrip with gilt decorations and lettering, marbled endpapers, a.e.g. Boards are somewhat rubbed at the edges, backstrip somewhat sun-toned, some smudges and finger marks to several leaves, plates are bright; very good. First edition, later printing with some leaves watermarked 1817, engravings are by Dadley for W. Miller. This work describes, in gruesome detail, the forms of punishments for numerous crimes committed in China. Each plate illustrates one type of punishment, ranging in severity, from the milder "Conducting an Offender into Banishment" to the more violent, "Hamstringing a Malefactor." The accompanying text, in both English and French, explains the details of how the punishments are delivered. While the methods are clearly barbaric by today's standards, Mason's book, along with the translation of the Qing penal code in 1810, created growing anxiety in Western countries over the perceived severity of Chinese standards for criminal justice.

        Synoptic tables of chemistry, intended to serve as a summary of the lectures delivered on that science in the public schools at Paris

      London: T. Cadell & W. Davies, 1801. First English edition. Calf-backed marbled boards; some light marginal spotting, small tear on first two leaves repaired, text unaffected, small stamp (discarded) from the Academy of Natural Sciences on title. Overall in excellent condition. First English edition of this scarce and handsome set of Fourcroy's chemistry tables. The present work was translated by William Nicholson from the original French (Tableaux Synoptiques de Chimie, 1800), the first set of chemical synoptic tables ever published. The author intended for it to accompany his collected lectures and chief work, Systême des connaissances chimiques (1800), which Ferguson considers "the best account of the state of the science at the time." While the extensive Systême des connaissances chimiques was written for the advanced scholar, Fourcroy felt the succinct large-format tables would summarize and clearly demonstrate the basic principles and relationships of chemistry for all students. They were originally created as teaching aids to be split up and posted on the wall of a laboratory or classroom, which likely contributed to the current rarity of complete sets. Fourcroy (1755-1809), noted French chemist and professor at the Jardin des Plantes, École Polytechnique, and the École de Médicine, was a dedicated teacher whose celebrated lectures were renowned for their completeness, clarity, and brilliant delivery. He joined with Lavoisier, Guyton de Morveau, and Berthollet in revising chemical nomenclature, which is reflected in this work. Nicholson (1753-1815), an English chemist, was a follower of Fourcroy's antiphlogistic theory, and translated many of his works into English including Élemens d'Histoire naturelle et de Chimie (1782), Essai sur le Phlogistique (1788), and later Systême des connaissances chimiques (1804).

Engraved frontispiece portrait. 2 vols. 12mo. Bouillé was a French general who served in the West Indies and distinguished himself as a commander of French forces in the American Revolution; he was the cousin of La Fayette. He was also Lieutenant-General of the Royal forces in the days of the French Revolution, and remained loyal to the King, playing a major role in the plan for Louis XVI's escape which ended in the King's arrest at Varennes. Bouillé escaped to England where he supported the royalist cause, and where he died in 1800.These Memoires were first published in London in 1794 in translation; they were then re-translated from the English into French and published there in 1798. According the publisher of this edition, Bouillé's family, which consigned the original manuscript to him, claims that the English translation was faulty, filled with errors, incomplete, and disavowed by Bouillé himself.

        Histoire des Chênes de l'Amérique, ou descriptions et figures de toutes les espèces et variétés de Chênes de I'Amérique Septentrionale, considérées sous les rapports de la Botanique, de leur culture et de leur usage

      de l'Imprimerie Crapelet, Paris 1801 - (17 1/2 x 11 1/2 inches). Half-title. 36 copper-engraved plates after Pierre-Joseph Redouté (32) or Henri-Joseph Redouté (4), by Plée (33) or Sellier (3). Minor foxing. Twentieth century half green morocco and green cloth boards, spine with raised bands in six compartments, panelled and lettered in gilt, marbled endpapers and edges The first edition Michaux's magisterial monograph on all the known species of North American Oaks, illustrated by the best known botanical painter of all time. In this excellent and very beautiful monograph Michaux begins by giving an historical overview of the Oak, before giving detailed descriptions of all the American species he had encountered. Starting with the Latin binomial, he gives a brief description in botanical Latin, Latin synonyms and the name in French and English. This is followed by notes on the trees height when full-grown, and descriptions of the timber, leaves, flowers and its geographical distribution. The remainder of each entry is made up of Michaux's observations which concentrate on whether the tree is worth cultivating, and if so for what reason. Thirty-two of the plates in this work are particularly striking early examples of the work of Pierre-Joseph Redouté, the remaining four are after his brother Henri-Joseph. The classically understated line engraved plates allow the unerring sense of design of the master botanical painter to be fully appreciated. All of the main species are illustrated by one plate, and a number by two. These second plates include acutely observed studies of young plants or details of leaves. "André Michaux was sent to America in 1785 by the French government, which asked him to collect timber trees and plants useful as either food or medicine. Michaux. was accompanied by his young son, François André, and a gardener, Paul Saulnier. A nursery garden was established in New Jersey, not far from New York, where Saulnier was to be in charge of a base for collections waiting to be sent back to Europe. During the next ten years, thousands of trees were collected by Michaux [on his travels to the southern Appalachians, Spanish Florida, the Bahamas, and the Carolina mountains. These were taken to the royal nurseries at Rambouillet. [but] relatively few of the plants survived. A second Michaux nursery was established at Charleston, South Carolina, under the care of François André until 1790, when he went back to France [to study medicine]. Meanwhile his father traveled from Hudson's Bay to Florida and west to the Mississippi in his search for new plants. The elder Michaux returned to France in 1796" ( Oak Spring Sylva ). Here he tried unsuccessfully to raise money from the government for further exploration of North America, and eventually accepted a post on Baudin's expedition to Australia, leaving France in October 1800. This was the last time that François André was to see his father (he died in Madagascar in 1802), and the younger Michaux was left to see the present work through the presses. However, he was more successful in getting official backing and visited America twice more: firstly from 1801 to 1803 and finally from 1806 to 1809.

His descriptive poem on the formal garden was popular as well in England, encompassing as it does descriptions of several of distinguished gardens across the channel, and this expanded text saw London printings almost immediately, and a number of deluxe/illustrated editions in the following decades. Brunet notes this edition adds 1100 lines to the poem. BRUNET II:576. VICAIRE III:122.

Par comparaison avec notre autre exemplaire de la troisième édition, on peut apercevoir qu'au sein d'une même édition des modifications typographiques ou de fond ont été apportées. Ainsi, dès la page "vi", cet exemplaire contient le texte suivant : "C'est sur la dernière phrase de cette apostrophe, que tombe la remarque du critique" ; dans l'autre version, on peut lire : "C'est la dernière phrase de cette apostrophe, qui a excité la gaîté de la Décade". Des modifications typographiques (dans une citation en grec, ou dans la pagination des premiers feuillets), il semble ressortir nettement que la présente version de la troisième édition est antérieure à celle de l'autre exemplaire. Bon état (coins frottés, le douzième cahier a été relié entre les cahiers 9 et 10) pour cet exemplaire en stricte reliure du temps de cette importante édition, qui révèle l'attention permanente que Chateaubriand portait au polissage de son oeuvre...

First edition of the first Western translation of the Upanishads, a collection of at least 200 sacred texts that contain some of the central philosophical concepts of Hinduism (of which some are shared with Buddhism, Janism and Sikhism). It is uncertain when the Upanishads were composed but it is believed that the earlier ones should be placed in the 7th or 6th century BC. This version of the Upanishads is based on a Persian translation from the Sanskrit commissioned by the Mogul Prince Dara Shikoh in 1656. Anquetil-Duperron, the famous traveller and discoverer of the Zend-Avesta, received two Persian manuscripts from which he made translations into French and Latin. (The French version was never published). His Latin printed version was received with both criticism and praise in the western world. The German philosopher Arthur Schopenhauer was an admirer of the Upanishads. After reading A-D's version he called it "the production of the highest human wisdom". Several other European and American poets and philosophers in the 19th century were greatly influenced by the teachings of the Upanishads. A significant work in a magnificent binding.
