        The Arabian Nights, in five volumes, translated by the Reverend Edward Forster.

      London, W. Bulmer & Co. for William Miller, 1802.. 8vo. 5 vols. With 24 engr. plates after Robert Smirke. Contemp. full straight-grained blue morocco, Greek key patterned boards, spine gilt in compartments, all edges gilt.. First edition of this early translation by Edward Forster (1769-1828), based on the French version of Antoine Galland, which had first appeared between 1704 and 1717. "Galland's translation [...] was quickly translated into English and German. It enjoyed a most remarkable success throughout Europe, perceptible even in children's literature, and contributed significantly to the new image which enlightened Europeans entertained of the Islamic East: after Galland, this was no longer the home of the Antichrist and of accursed heresy, but rather the ever-constant Orient beneath an eternally fair sky, boasting splendid colours and unheard-of wealth, Caliphs, Viziers, and Kadis, harems, fairy-tale princes, fairies and genies, sorcerers and sages, a world of fantastic adventure and outrageous incidents" (cf. Fück, p. 101). - After having studied law and medicine at Balliol and St Mary Hall, Oxford, Forster decided to enter the clergy. He soon "entered into an engagement with a bookseller, William Miller [...], to issue tastefully printed editions of the works of standard authors, illustrated by the best artists of the day" (DNB). The series was inceived with "Don Quixote" in 1801. His "Arabian Nights" were frequently reprinted, seeing five editions by 1854. The present set is distinguished by the beautiful illustrations after Smirke, "whom every person of correct taste will acknowledge to be second to none in this range of art" (I, vii), as well as by the elegantly gilt navy blue morocco bindings. Some occasional spotting due to paper, some slight wear and scuffing, but a beautiful set altogether. - Chauvin IV, 239. Brunet III, 1716. Graesse IV, 524. Lowndes/Bohn I, 59. DNB VII, 453. OCLC 5782874. Thieme/B. XXXI, 164 (illustrations).

      np. Np. 1802.. Signed by Author(s) 46x 62cm ( 18" x 25"), printed withhand-written entries, vellum, with large circular seal attached to deedwith ribbon, docket on verso, mounted on stiff card backing andprofessionally framed with glass on both sides to display both the deed,docket and both sides of the seal, plain wooden frame (82x 94cm), a fineexample of an early Ontario land grant displayed in museum quality, veryrare. In my experience Lands Grants from this period with the sealintact are very scarce. In addition, these documents prior to 1810, arevery rare. I only remember seeing any of these once previously; aboutthirty five years ago in the offices of Joseph Patrick Books, Toronto.The area in the Bay of Quinte was settled in the early spring of 1794 bydisbanded soldiers of the 2nd Battalion, Rogers' Corps. The granteemarried the daughter of one of the officers, Ensign David Fraser. JoshuaBooth (1759-1813), a miller, was one of first elected members of theUpper Canadian Parliament assembled in Newark in 1792 and served as aCaptain in the Hastings Militia. "Died at Ernestown, on Saturday, Oct.31, 1813, suddenly, Joshua Booth, Esq., aged 54 years. He was one of theoldest settlers in that place, and ever retained the character of arespectable citizen. Left a widow and ten children." [Canniff: Settlementof Upper Canada, 1869]. The deed has been endorsed and signed by theLieutenant Governor of Upper Canada, Peter Hunter, who held the positionfrom 1799 to 1805. His military responsibilities as commander-in-chiefof the forces in Canada necessitated his often absence from York andgovernment was left in the hands of executive councillors (believed tobe the origination of the "Family Compact"). .

        THE ARABIAN NIGHTS (Five Volumes Complete with All illustrations)

      Printed for William Miller by W. Bulmer and Co, London, 1802., London - A gorgeously bound set with lavish gilt decorations on the spine which has five raised bands. Would be far more expensive were it not for the front cover of volume one being detached (it is present). Red, butterscotch and green colored morocco compartments for the spine lettering. Date of 1802 in gilt at bottom of spines. Probably rebacked in the early 20th century as there are replaced blank endpapers. Original calf covers with lovely tooling and gilt. All edges text block gilt. Lacking half titles but all title pages are present. All 24 engravings from the originals by Robert Smirke are present. Some of the plates with more recent tissues. The contents are remarkably clean -- almost fresh with subtle age toning for the most part. Some offsetting from plates to opposite pages of text caused light browning on these few pages. The Illustrations likewise clean and remarkably fresh in appearance. Light pencilled notes on some of the blank endpapers and one blank has light pencilling noting all five plates being present although one has been used as frontispiece whereas it had previously been placed later in the volume. Old bookplate and somewhat more recent bookplate present on front paste-down endpapers. With a bit of investment to re-attach cover of volume one, this set would retail for far more than this price. Sets of books such as this may of course require additional shipping depending on destination and method of shipping. Size: Octavo, 385, 432, 405, 461, 474pp [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        A Voyage Up The Mediterranean in His Majesty's Ship The Swiftsure. One of The Squadron Under The Command of Rear - Admiral Baron Nelson of The Nile, And Duke of Bronte in Sicily, With A Description of The Battle of The Nile On The First of August 1798 and a detail of events that occured subsequent to the battle in various parts of the Mediterranean

      T. Bensley, London 1802 - First edition. 43 hand-colored plates. xxiii, 309 pp. 1 vols. 4to (285 x 230 mm). A lovely, fully-colored copy of this important account of Nelson's victory at the Nile, and of travels in the Mediterranean. Willyams served as chaplain of the Swiftsure, a ship in Nelson's squadron, and he was present at the Battle of the Nile."Placed as he was in the midst of a battle as splendid and extraordinary as the page of history has ever recorded, an attendant of the chase which preceded it, and of many interesting occurrences and scenes which the shores of the Mediterranean exhibited for nearly two years after its termination, he daily minuted with his pen and pencil the observations and images which obtruded themselves upon him. The authenticity of such memorials, and the views of places and people, which the present as well as the past has rendered subjects of such warm curiosity and interest, may, as his friends flatter him, give a value to his simple diary, and the sketches, even if unskilful, of a self-taught artist" (preface).The ODNB calls this book "the first, the most particular, and the most authentic account of the battle." Willyams was a talented topographer and artist, and this is a handsomely produced book, showing the skill of the printer, Bensley.The plates are after drawings done by Willyams and include a plan of the battle, as well as views in Sicily, Syracuse, Egypt, Alexandria, Syria, Venice, Gibraltar, and other locations around the Mediterranean.The text includes well-written descriptions of all these places and more.

        THÉORIE DES JARDINS, Ou L'Art Des Jardins De La Nature.

      The enlarged and partially revised second edition, which includes significant material supplementing the original version of 1776. The newly added preface (128 pages) provides, among other things, an extended commentary on writings on garden design published since the first edition. There are also 75 pages of end notes and a new 100 page section on trees, consisting primarily of a "Tableau Dendrologique" listing the various features of over 1000 varieties of trees. Morel's THEORIE, following shorter works by Girardin and Watelet, presented the most thorough treatise on the new theories of natural garden design which dominated French taste at the end of the 18th century. It was also the first treatise on garden design in the natural style (French or English) to have been written by a professional rather than an amateur. Morel's practical experience is evident throughout, which may help account for the high esteem in which the book was held by French landscape gardeners far into the nineteenth century. Drawing heavily on Whately's OBSERVATIONS ON MODERN GARDENING, Morel rejected the formal symmetry of classical French gardens in favor of the picturesque and "natural" style associated with the English. He did not, however, actually visit England and its gardens until after the publication of the first edition, and the comments he added to this edition are the first to reflect first-hand experience of the places Whately had described. All these additions make this the generally preferred edition for purposes of study. Ganay 98. Two volumes, 8vo (21 x 14 cm); (viii) + cxxviii + 234 + (1, errata), (iv) + 340 + (2, errata) pp. + engraved frontispiece. Original plain blue paper wraps with printed spine labels; extremities rubbed; last three leaves of volume one stained; some margin soiling of first two leaves of volume two; a wide-margined copy with text with edges untrimmed.

        Neue Reise durch England und Portugal: Briefe während meines Aufenthalts in England und Portugal an einen Freund. (Erster Theil).

      Hamburg, August Campe, 1802. Braunschweig gedruckt bei Friedrich Vieweg.. O-Pappband mit handgeschriebenem Papiertitelschild der Zeit auf Rücken, Einband berieben, Ecken und Kanten beschabt, Stempel und Name auf Vorsatz, Seiten stellenweise etwas stockfleckig. Schmutztitelblatt, 433 Seiten, ohne Frontispiz, Widmung und Vorrede. 1. Brief bis 26. Brief vollständig. 8°. Erstausgabe.. Lucie Domeier (geb. Esther Gad, gesch. Esther Bernard, auch Lucie Bernard (1767 Breslau - 1833) war eine deutsche Schriftstellerin. Lucie Domeier wurde als Esther Gad 1767 in eine wohlhabende jüdische Familie geboren. Esther Gad zeigte im jugendlichen Alter einen Drang nach intensiver Bildung. Ihr Bruder Isaak Gad, der zu diesem Zeitpunkt bereits in Dresden lebte, wurde für sie zum Vorbild, der ihr Bildung vermittelte. Mit 13 Jahren lernte sie Französisch und später Italienisch und Englisch. Esther Gad wurde 1791 in Breslau mit dem Kaufmann Samuel Bernard verheiratet und bekam in den folgenden Jahren drei Kinder. Bereits 1796 ließ sie sich von Samuel Bernard scheiden und ging nach Dresden, wo sie im Haus des Oberhofkapellmeisters Johann Gottlieb Naumann lebte und u. a. mit der Schriftstellerin Elisa von der Recke verkehrte. Um ihrem Sohn Jonas eine gute Ausbildung zukommen zu lassen, zog Esther Gad 1799 nach Berlin, wo sie Rahel Varnhagen von Ense persönlich kennenlernte, mit der sie bereits in den 1790er Jahren einen Briefwechsel führte. Sie trat mit Dorothea Veit, Henriette Herz und Madame de Genlis in freundschaftlichen Kontakt und lernte ihren zweiten Ehemann Wilhelm Friedrich Domeier kennen, der Arzt des Prinzen Eduard, Herzog von Kent war. Esther Gad konvertierte 1801 zum Christentum und nahm den Vornamen Lucie an. Sie folgte Wilhelm Friedrich Domeier im selben Jahr nach Großbritannien und heiratete ihn am 27. Juni 1802. Der Sohn August Edward Domeier kam am 20. Februar 1804 zur Welt. Die Jahre 1802 und 1803 waren von längeren Aufenthalten in Portugal geprägt, die Lucie Domeier in ihren Reiseerzählungen verarbeitete. Später lebte sie eine längere Zeit auf Malta, bevor sie sich in London niederließ, wo ihr Mann 1815 starb. In den folgenden Jahre pflegte Lucie Domeier in London Kontakte zu Walter Scott und Lord Byron und unternahm zahlreiche Reisen, u. a. 1822 nach Deutschland. Lucie Domeier wurde erstmals 1791 schriftstellerisch aktiv. Sie wandte sich in ihrem Werk gegen eine Reduzierung der Frau auf ihre Funktion als Hausfrau und Mutter und verteidigte das Recht der Frau auf höhere Geistesbildung und Gelehrsamkeit welches auch in diesen Briefen aus England und Portugal deutlich wird mit denen sie literarischen Erfolg hatte. Ihre Beschreibungen sind realitätsnah und nehmen kein "Blatt vor den Mund".

        Traites de legislation civile et penale, pecedes de principes generaux de legislation, et d'une vue d'un corps complet de droit: termines par an essai sur l'influence des tems et des lieux relativement aux lois. .. publies en Francois par Et. Dumont, de Geneve, d'apres les manuscrits confies par l'auteur

      Paris, Chez Bossange, 1802. Three vols., 8vo., xlii + 370 and xx + 434 and viii + 452pp., with the half-title in each volume, a little spotting and general paper-browning, contemporary uniform tree sheep, neatly rebacked to match with contrasting labels and gilt lines. A very good set. First edition: really quite scarce. Chuo T8(1). Everett p.529. Harrison p.xvii. Muirhead p.17. A seminal work on penal reform and legislation in general which more than any other established Bentham's reputation. The first of Bentham's works to be edited by Dumont, it consists partly of papers by Bentham himself, some of which were originally written in French and partly of a digest by Dumont of Bentham's ideas, including a Memoire> in French on the Panopticon>. Dumont (1759-1829), a Swiss writer and journalist, had met Bentham at the house of Lord Shelburne in 1788. There followed an enduring relationship in which Dumont translated and edited many of Bentham's works, acting at the same time as in effect Bentham's literary agent. But, as the Chuo cataloguer acknowledges, it was the 1802 Traites> that 'rendered Bentham's name and basic ideas famous on the Continent and in Latin America, and then in (England)'.

        Belle lettre sur l’Académie Française et de son secours apporté aux petits pauvres de Guernesey

      - HUGO Victor (Besançon 1802 - Paris 1885), écrivain français Lettre autographe signée à l’académicien et homme politique Abel-François Villemain. Hauteville House 27 décembre 1868; 2 pages in-8°, avec enveloppe. Superbe lettre de Victor Hugo emprunte de sagesse et de générosité où il est question de sa place à l’Académie française et de son secours apporté aux petits pauvres de Guernesey : «Mon illustre et cher confrère, J’apprends avec plaisir que je suis un des huit plus vieux de l'académie. Tout en souhaitant et en espérant la longévité d'autrui, j'ai le droit de tenir peu à la mienne. Il me semble que maintenant ma sortie est prochaine, et j'en félicite les talents et les renommées qui attendent (Hugo est ovationné à son retour à Paris le 5 septembre 1870) Si l'exil m'empêche de donner ma voix, il ne m'empêche pas de donner ma place. - Du reste, dans cet exil, actuellement volontaire, la communication que vous voulez bien me faire vient très à propos. J'ai entrepris, à mes frais, dans mon île, l'amélioration hygiénique et intellectuelle de quarante enfants pauvres, et je saisis avec empressement le moyen de grossir un peu leur petite liste civile. Soyez assez bon pour annoncer à l’académie que j’accepte, et recevez ( ) Cher Villemain, vous savez, n’est-ce pas ? que mon vieux cœur est toujours tout à vous.» Victor Hugo refuse l’amnistie des exilés politiques à deux reprises en 1859 et 1869. Il finit par revenir de son exil le 5 septembre 1870 après la défaite à Sedan suivit de l’abdication de Napoléon III, son retour à Paris est un triomphe. Le 7 janvier 1841, à l’âge de 39 ans, Victor Hugo entre à l’Académie française après avoir essuyé plusieurs échecs, il meurt le 22 mai 1885, doyen de l’Académie. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

      . Paris, Museum d'Histoire Naturelle, 1802-1897. 4to. 2,048 copper engravings and lithographed plates of which many double-sized or larger, and/or hand-coloured or in chromolithography, and seven portraits. Contemporary uniform marbled boards with morocco labels on the spines in different colours for the different series; original printed wrappers of several issues bound in (Annales, Memoires, Nouvelle Annales), and near contemporary uniform cloth bindings with red morocco labels (Archives and Nouvelles Archives, first series), and original printed wrappers (last two series of the Nouvelles Archives). l Very rare set, seldom seen complete, of the most important scientific natural history journal published in France during the 19th century. There are in total 84 volumes in 4to with over 2,000 engraved and lithographed plates, of which over 250 are hand-coloured or in chromolithography. This work contains the contributions of all the famous French naturalists of the 19th century, in many cases the first publication(s) of these authors, or at least in their first editions, and often their most important research and results. In the Annales, for instance, Cuvier published his important series on molluscan anatomy, while his rival Lamarck contributed with his monograph of the fossil shells of the Paris Basin. Ornithology is well-represented. For instance: De Blainville "Le Dodo, autrement Dronte (Didus ineptus L.)" with four lithographed plates one being a beautiful hand-coloured head of the dodo by G. de Bierre. Another important "first" is Geoffroy St-Hilaire's "Descriptions des Mammiferes nouveaux ou imparfaitement connus: famille des Singes" with eight lithographed plates of which two are coloured, one of which is the chimpanzee (Pan troglodytes L.) and appears to be the first monograph, antedating that of Owen by seven years. A herpetological treasure is De Blainville's "Description de quelques especes de reptiles de la Californie". Throughout all series there is also much on entomology, and more on conchology/malacology, including palaeontology, ichthyology and studies on crustaceans. Authors included are Cuvier, Valenciennes, Audouin, Lamarck, Becquerel, H. and A. Milne-Edwards, Brongniart, Jussieu, Tulasne, De Serres, Dumeril, Thouin, Deleuze, Fourcroy, Vauquelin a.o. Among the entomological titles we find, e.g., the following works by Lyonet: "Anatomie de differentes especes d'insectes" (a long series, with plates by W. de Haan), Lacordaire's "Essai sur les coleopteres de la Guyane Francaise", an illustrated paper by Boisduval on Macrolepidoptera from Madagascar, Mauritius and Reunion, inaptly titled "Considerations generales"; Audouin and Brulle's "Description des especes nouvelles ou peu connues de la famille des cicindeletes", with nice large hand-coloured plates, Raffray's "Coleopteres de la famille des paussides"; Paul Gervais' paper titled "remarques sur la famille des scorpions et description de plusiers especes nouvelles de la collection du Museum", and more. Pere David, first westerner to see the deer named after him and the giant panda, published his travel diaries in the Nouvelles Archives, with many zoological observations, and this came with a string of papers by Vaillant, Sauvage, Heude, and others on the specimens of birds, fish, molluscs and other animals he collected. Over the years many papers included in this series have been sold separately for considerable prices. In all it can be stated that these publications by the natural history museum of Paris do not only contain a great deal of zoological, palaeontological, geological and (bio)chemical observations and discoveries, but also provided a platform for many new ideas and concepts about how the natural world is organized and how it is developing. Some rubbing to boards, and especially to spine ends. Ten parts of the Nouvelles Archives with renewed spine, a few text parts with brittle edges (and, however, very wide margins), a few text sections and plates spotted or age-toned, but much less so than usual; a few sections, including plates with some offsetting (more obtrusive in a few sections of the Memoires), some minor creasing, a few captions shaved and some minor, usually marginal dampstaining. This set ends with Nouvelles Archives series III, volume 9(1); one more part and one more volume were published before the start of the fourth series. By then, however, the great era of descriptive zoology and botany, with large and lavish hand-coloured plates had come to an end. On request we can offer a complete collation for a detailed list of irregularities, including reversals of plate orders including plate 5 of Nouvelles Archives volume 4 perhaps being issued later and here bound in volume 5. In all a very impressive set. Nissen ZBI, 4551, 4552, 4560, 4561, 4677.(Postage on this item might be more than indicated, please inquire).

        Les Royaumes De Portugal et d'Algarve. Par Rizzi Zannoni - Venise 1082 (1802). - Pasquali s.':.

      - Altkolorierter Kupferstich v. Giovanni Battista Pasquali n. Giovanni Antonio Rizzi-Zannoni b. Società Calcografia in Venedig, dat. 1802, 46,5 x 61,5 Biblioteca Nacional De Portugal, 460748 sonst bibliographisch nicht nachweisbar! - Diese sehr seltene Karte gehört zu einem nie beendetem Projekt der "Società Calcografia", ein Zusammenschluß der beiden venezianischen Verleger des 18. Jahrhundert Antonio Zatta und Giuseppe Antonio Remondini. - Weitere Karten die uns aus dem Projekt bekannt sind tragen auch den Namen "à Venise Chez la Societe Chalcographique". - Das Projekt ist nie beendet worden und die Karten in keiner uns bekannten Bibliographie aufgeführt. - Oben rechts in Manuskript "N. VI." - Die Karte zeigt den Portugal. - Unten links altkolorierte Titelkartusche; darunter Meilenzeiger. - Extrem seltener Einblattdruck! 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". 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. 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 in 1811.

An important nosology of acute diseases, attempting to systematize all factors, including the weather. Pinel, a Paris physician appointed as physician to a notorious mental hospital, found many of the patients in chains, some having been so for many years. Shocked by the conditions he uncovered, he insisted on humane treatment of the patients with specially selected physicians to treat them. He devoted the rest of his life to psychiatry and treatment of the insane. Pinel (1755-1826) war ein berühmter Psychiater. Sein "unsterbliches Verdienst um die Psychiatrie ist es, zuerst auf die menschlichere Behandlung der Irren gedrungen zu haben. Aber auch für die Entwicklung der inneren Medicin ist P. von grosser Bedeutung geworden, indem er . den Grundsatz aufstellte, dass die Med. ein Zweig der Naturwissenschaften sei und dass daher, wie bei diesen, auch die analytische Methode statt der bisher beliebten synthetischen Platz greifen müsse. Er suchte daher die Diagnose der Krankheiten aus den Symptomen zu stellen, denen er die pathologische Anatomie unterordnete." (Hirsch V, p. 609). [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Voyage pittoresque de Basle a Bienne par les Vallons de Mottiers-Grand

      1802. BIRMANN, Pierre. Voyage pittoresque de Basle a Bienne par les Vallons de Mottiers-Grandval. Les planches dessinées par Pierre Birmann, accompagnés d'un texte par l'auteur de la course de Basle a Bienne. 37 pp. Illustrated with 12 (of 36) hand-coloured aquatint plates and 1 full-page map. Oblong-folio, 320 x 434 mm, bound in contemporary Swiss half-calf, gilt ornamental tooling on spine, marbled paper over boards. Basel: Decker, 1802. |~||~||~||~| Complete first part of this very sought-after travel book, with the large plates possessing exceptional hand-colouring instead of the usual sepia. The Voyage pittoresque of Pierre Birmann represents one of the key early nineteenth-century view books of Switzerland, this one centered on the Jura canton in northwest Switzerland. As stated in the introduction, Birman, published this work in response to the dire European mood at the turn of the nineteenth century dominated by Napoleon's aggression. He intended his views of the Jura's picturesque highlands crossed by river valleys as an antidote/escape from the horrors of war, and to represent an opposition to the current popular art of the day that focused on battle scenes, sieges, desolation and death. The pastoral, bucolic villages, mountain streams, surrounding forests, and cathedral-like rock formations represented a landscape unspoiled by mankind. Pierre Birmann (1758-1844) 'began his career as a portrait painter in Basle and then moved to Berne, where he took up landscape painting. In 1781 Birmann made the grand tour and ended up staying in Rome for ten years working for Louis Ducros and for Giovanni Volpato. While in Rome he painted landscapes in watercolour and drew in bistre, using a soft brush and making little use of the pen. He became a member of Goethe's circle in Rome, and then fell under the influence of Claude Lorraine. In 1792 he returned to Basle where he eventually become an art dealer. He later opened his own publishing house, and in 1802 he printed his best-known work, a series of aquatints of Voyage pittoresque de Basle à Bienne par les vallons de Mottiers-Grandval' (cf. Oxford Art Online). The text for Voyage pittoresque was written by Philippe S. Bridel, (see: Barbier, V, 1379).

        Ängelske Sid-Captenens, federmera Predikantens Johan Newtons synnerligen märkwärdiga Rese- och Leswernes-Beskrifning... Pastoren Doctor T. Haweis

      Stockholm: Carl Fr. Marquard, 1802. Small octavo, wear to title-page and final text leaf, unnumbered final contents page torn with loss and with rather basic paper repair; contemporary half calf lending-library binding with original borrowing rules pasted to front paste-down, joints starting but firm, a worn but not unattractive copy. Very uncommon: the first Swedish edition of this series of letters by the English clergyman and former slave-ship owner, John Newton, best known as the author of the hymn "Amazing Grace". The letters are written to Thomas Haweis, co-founder of the London Missionary Society and the editor of the 1799 account of the Duff voyage to Tahiti.After a difficult career as a young man at sea, Newton experienced a conversion in 1748, although for more than a decade he continued his association with slave-ships. It was not until 1764 that Thomas Haweis managed to get Newton the living for Olney in Buckinghamshire, the same year that this work was first published in England (An Authentic Narrative of some Remarkable and Interesting Particulars... Communicated in a series of letters, to the Reverend Mr. Haweis). This Swedish translation is based on a German-language edition of 1791. Becoming a prominent abolitionist, in 1788 Newton published Thoughts Upon the Slave Trade, a horrific account of the Middle Passage.The main text of this work is in the form of a series of "Brefwet" or letters, the first signed 12 January 1763, and the last 2 February 1763. Throughout, there are numerous quotations from the Bible, usually printed in bold, and references to the main locations associated with the slave trade, including notes on Sierra Leone, Antigua and the West Indies.

        The Works in Natural History.

      Printed for J. White, London 1802 - Two volumes, octavo, frontispiece in each volume, one handcoloured and folding, one folding plate; contemporary ownership inscription on each of the titles, contemporary marbled sheep, rebacked at an early date, retaining the original labels. The Rev. Gilbert White (1720-1793), best known for his Natural History of Selborne - a classic of both natural history and English literature - was in close contact with the leading naturalists of the day: Sir Joseph Banks, Thomas Pennant, Daniel Solander, Forster, William Curtis, and Sir Ashton Lever. He followed Cook and Banks' voyage in the Endeavour closely, and later wrote of an ironic twist: "A gent. came the other day, and said he understood that there was a Mr. White who had lately published two books, a good one and a bad one; the bad one was concerning Botany Bay, the better respecting some parish"
