        Nouvelle-Hollande: Terre de Witt ? Terre de Diémen du nord? [Plate VII from:] Voyage de Découvertes aux Terres Australes

      Paris 1807 - Single sheet, 353 x 260 mm., wove paper, hand-coloured engraving, very good. Coastal views of Northwestern Australia. A charming set of coastal views on the western and northern coast of Australia after the original sketches by Lesueur. The first two coastal views depict stretches of the Champagny archipelago (present-day Champagny and Heywood Islands), off the Kimberley coast in far northwest Australia (including what Phillip Parker King called the prominent "inverted basin" coastline of Île Freycinet itself). The important group in the middle of this plate show many views of islands in the Bonaparte archipelago, again in the Kimberley, while the last two are views of "Terre de Diemen du nord" (that is, in what is now Northern Territory waters). The names were chosen to honour French predecessors and patrons, such as Commerson (Bougainville's botanist), Jussieu (the French botanist), and Suffren (Comte Pierre André de Suffren de Saint Tropez; the decorated French admiral who, incidentally, captured Cook's old ship the Resolution in 1782). Many of the names given to these remote islands were retained, despite the later conflict between the British and the French regarding naming rights in Australia.

        Voyage de Découvertes aux Terres Australes ... Sur les corvettes le Géographe, le Naturaliste, et la goélette le Casuarina, pendant les années 1800, 1801, 1802, 1803 et 1804

      Paris: Imprimerie Impériale [Royale], 1807-1816-1807-1811-1815-, 1812. Bound in five volumes; a handsome set of the complete official edition, including the "general reader's edition", comprising the two-volume quarto text with portrait frontispiece and two folding tables, the two-parts of the large quarto atlas bound as a single volume containing 40 plates (23 coloured and two folding) and 14 maps (two double-page); together with the "Partie Navigation", comprising a quarto text volume and imperial folio hydrographical atlas, the latter with engraved title, contents and 32 engraved charts, all pages in the imperial atlas expertly mounted on new binder's stubs; a few very sporadic spots, but the set in fine untrimmed condition, the plates crisp and the colouring bright, bound in matching French quarter red morocco over marbled boards, corners pointed in vellum. FINISHED. A fine set of the full account of the Baudin voyage. An extremely good set of the first edition of the complete official account of the Baudin voyage to Australia and the Pacific, sent out by the French government in 1800 with orders to complete the cartographic survey of the Australian coast. This set is in unusually fine condition, with the plates notably crisp and, where appropriate, with the delicate original hand-colouring. This set includes the official account of the voyage (sometimes called the "general reader's edition"), as well as the large-format atlas and its accompanying volume of text: the atlas was published in 1812 and is the first Australian atlas, while the accompanying volume of text is effectively an early pilot's guide to the coast. Baudin's two ships, the Géographe and the Naturaliste, left Le Havre on 19 October 1800 and reached Mauritius six months later, but shipboard quarrels and illness caused a mass defection of scientists and sailors. Having rejigged his crew, Baudin set sail for New Holland, sighting Cape Leeuwin on 27 May and anchoring in Geographe Bay three days later. He sailed north and examined Rottnest Island and Swan River, but the two ships became separated on 11 June. The Géographe finally anchored at Shark Bay on 27 June, but had left by the time the Naturaliste arrived. The latter vessel stayed on in Shark Bay to make an extensive survey - including the discovery of the Vlamingh plate - while Baudin and the Géographe worked along the difficult coast past the North West Cape. The two ships ultimately arrived in Timor in August and September; tropical diseases were already causing deaths among the crew. In November they sailed south for Cape Leeuwin where Baudin, ignoring his instructions to begin charting the south coast immediately, headed for Tasmania, making the D'Entrecasteaux Channel in early January. The two vessels began a close survey of the east coast, again becoming separated. Hamelin on the Naturaliste crossed Bass Strait and made a survey of Western Port before running for Port Jackson. Meanwhile Baudin began his survey of "Terre Napoleon", meeting Matthew Flinders at Encounter Bay in April. Worn out, Baudin turned for Sydney, but chose to again round the southern tip of Tasmania, meaning that he did not arrive off Port Jackson until 17 June, his crew severely weakened by scurvy. Hamelin had actually already headed out to search for Baudin in Bass Strait, but the combination of a storm and poor provisions saw him back in Sydney a few days later, and the two ships stayed in Sydney until November. Warmly and hospitably entertained by Governor King, the French spent their time recuperating and making sense of their collections. In Sydney Baudin purchased a small vessel which he named the Casuarina, placing the relatively young officer Louis de Freycinet in charge. The Casuarina, just 29 feet in length, was acquired to help make the difficult inshore surveys, and Louis' appointment should be understood as an early notice of his skills in charting. The three vessels left Sydney together, but Baudin decided to send the Naturaliste directly back to France, and Hamelin reached Le Havre on 7 June 1803, having sailed via Mauritius. The Géographe and the Casuarina made close surveys of King Island, Kangaroo Island and the Gulf of St Vincent ("Golfe Joséphine"), before continuing to King George's Sound in western Australia, whence they returned to Shark Bay and the northwest before finally reaching Timor on 7 May 1803. They made a quick return visit to the northwest coast of Australia - their third - and reached Mauritius in July, where Baudin died on 19 September. Command was given to Pierre-Bernard Milius, who had been recuperating in Port Louis where he had been left by Hamelin. The decision was made to abandon the Casuarina, and the remaining crew transferred to the Géographe, which returned home on 25 March 1804, almost three-and-a-half years after they left. The official account of the Baudin voyage appeared over ten years, in two quite distinct sections. The two-volume narrative with a small folio atlas of two parts (including some charting, chiefly of specific ports, and the famous views and portraits of native peoples) appeared between 1807 and 1816. The separate large-scale coastal mapping of Australia, an imperial folio atlas accompanied by a volume of partly narrative text together forming the first Australian pilot, was published between 1812 and 1815.

        Terre de Diemén. Grou-agara

      Paris: circa, 1807. Engraved portrait, 315 x 240 mm. (plate size), slight marginal browning, very good condition. Grou-agara, from the D'Entrecasteaux Channel. A striking portrait of the Tasmanian man Grou-Agara by Petit prepared for the atlas volume of the first edition of the official voyage account. The two ships of the expedition had anchored in d'Entrecasteaux Channel on 13 January 1802 after two months at sea; Frank Horner has called the time that followed 'two of the most productive months the expedition was to enjoy' (The French Reconnaissance, p. 191). Their easy and friendly relations with the aboriginal tribes of the region had brought great satisfaction to the French, and they maintained a good rapport throughout their stay. Petit, in particular, was very busy with his sketch book, and his series of portraits and scenes are among the most sensitive portrayals of Tasmanian aborigines - in fact, together with the handful of portraits in the official account of Cook's third voyage, these portraits are the earliest major study of the Tasmanians. The table of contents simply notes that this man was from Van Diemen's Land.

        The Satires, Translated and illustrated by Francis Hodgson

      London: T. Bensley, 1807. Quarto; a fine copy, complete with the list of subscribers and errata-slip, in a splendid contemporary russia binding with heavy sides, ornately decorated in blind and gilt, with the Newstead Abbey coat-of-arms heavily stamped on the cover, spine gilt between double raised bands, marbled edges, matching marbled endpapers; joints neatly repaired, occasional light foxing or faint soiling. Subscriber's copy from Newstead Abbey. First edition of Hodgson's verse translation of Juvenal's Satires; Lowndes quotes Byron's opinion of this version as 'displaying unquestionable genius'. This especially handsome copy was bound for one of the subscribers, Thomas Wildman, Byron's schoolfriend who purchased Newstead Abbey from Byron's family at about the time of this book's publication. Newstead Abbey, Nottinghamshire, was Byron's ancestral home; he wrote Hours of Idleness there in 1806. After he left Newstead, and England, for ever (leaving instructions that he should eventually be buried there in the family vault, near his dog, Boatswain), the property was sold to his former schoolfellow, Colonel Thomas Wildman. Wildman spent a vast amount of money on restoration of the estate, and also built a notable collection of Byron artefacts and memorabilia. Newstead Abbey is also famous for its connection with David Livingstone, the missionary and explorer, who wrote his journals there.

        A REPLY TO THE ESSAY ON POPULATION, BY THE REV. T.R. MALTHUS. In a Series of Letters. To which are added, Extracts from the Essay; with Notes.

      London: Printed for Longman, Hurst, Rees, and Orme, Paternoster-Row. 1807 - First edition. 8vo. 5.25 x 8.5 inches. iv + 3-378 pp. [a]2 B-C7, D-D4, E-Z8, Aa-Bb8. Despite irregularities in pagination (lacks pp.1-2, 41-42) and in the register (C8 cancelled as usual), the text is complete and is identical to Keynes 4. Bound in contemporary half-calf with blind stamped decoration, gilt decorated spine slightly rubbed, green morocco labels, marbled boards, endpapers and edges. Some foxing and discolouration throughout. Philip Sassoon illustrated bookplate inside front paste-down and Port Lympne library label at foot of first blank. A copybook ink inscription, W Hazlitt 1807, at end of advertisement and smaller signatures, W. Hazlitt at end of letters I-III. These latter appear identical to that (using his earlier long z) in the Mary Evans Picture Library self-portrait and therefore are almost certainly the author's actual signature. The first three of the letters appeared originally in Cobbett's Weekly Political Register, 14 March and 16 and 23 May 1807, Cobbett being a friend of Hazlitt. The other two letters and the 'Extracts from the essay on population. With a commentary, and notes.' were added specifically for the book. The author's name does not appear on the title page but he has signed it several times in the text. William Hazlitt, painter, journalist and essayist (1778-1830) was born in Maidstone, the son of a Unitarian minister. His view of the natural disinteredness of the human mind led him to assert his own optimistic view of human nature in contrast to the pessimism of Malthus, whose theory was based on self-interet, which he abhorred. Robert Malthus, the famed political economist (1766-1834) was an ordained minister of the church and professor of history and political economy at the East India College. He published the first edition of his most famous work, 'An Essay on the Principle of Population' in 1798 and the second expanded edition, to which Hazlitt is replying, in 1805. He argued that the growth of population would always outstrip the expansion of the food supply, for while population increased in a geometrical ratio, subsistence would only increase in an arithmetical ratio. Various natural checks such as war, famine and pestilence served to hold back the exponential rise in population but man also resorted to other means, such as prostitution (i.e. non-reproductive sexual activity) and contraception and the practise of 'moral restraint,' including delayed marriage, between the sexes. Hazlitt takes issue with the representation by Malthus of 'vice and misery as the necessary consequences of an abstract principle, of a fundamental law of our nature' and puts forward his own view that the current 'decay of manners' may be put down to 'Great towns, great schools, dress, and novels.' He expands on the last two at some length, quoting the example of a hypothetical country girl who goes up to town as milliner's apprentice, and sits up half the night reading lurid novels, making her fall easy prey to 'the first coxcomb of real flesh and blood, who.accosts her in the shape of a lover.' Turning to the subject of female clothing Hazlitt states: 'I would ordain that no woman should express her shape publicly, unless she were a prostitute.' He professes his indignation with the prevailing fashion for loose clinging gowns, protesting in some detail about the sights thereby revealed to the onlooker in contrast to their mothers and grandmothers 'who almost blushed at their own shadows.' (Q4-Q6v). Hazlitt's impassioned attack on Malthus proved ineffective and in 1819, he referred to these early essays, 'the style of which is, I confess, a little exuberant,' (quoted in Keynes, p.9). The work of Malthus, however, produced an immediate and lasting impact, leading to the taking of the first national census in 1801 and influencing writers and thinkers such as Darwin. The concept of a Malthusian crisis was influential in the twentieth century in popular culture, inspiring a new environmentalism, exemplified

A romantic novel from French author Anne Louise Germaine de Stael-Holstein, or Madame de Stael, as she is better known. In French.

Madame de Stael spent nearly a year writing Corinne; in 1806 she broke the decree of exile and lived for a time undisturbed near Paris. In 1807 Corinne, the first aesthetic romance not written in German, appeared.

Themes, characters and passages of Ossian are based on established Celtic and Scottish folklore. A new editionJames Macpherson claimed that Ossian was based on an ancient Gaelic manuscript. There was just one problem. The existence of this manuscript was never established. Authenticity of the work was widely contested, particularly by Samuel Johnson. A huge (and probably excessive) backlash ensued, and conventional wisdom today brands Ossian as one of the great forgeries of history. Macpherson is today considered the author of this work.

Carey came from a middle-class family and was born in Dublin in 1760. He entered the bookselling and printing business in 1775, and when still only seventeen published a pamphlet criticizing dueling. This publication was quickly followed by another work criticizing the severity of the Irish penal code and as a result the authorities threatened him with prosecution. As a result of these threats he moved to Paris in 1781. There he met Benjamin Franklin, working at the time as American revolutionary ambassador to France, who took him on to work in his printing office. Carey printed the first American version of the Douay-Rheims Bible, popularly known as the Carey Bible, from 1789 which was the first Roman Catholic version of the Bible printed in the United States.

        The History of England

      London - C. and R. Baldwin, 1807. London - C. and R. Baldwin, 1807 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A complete set of Smollett&#39;s A History of England in Five Volumes, spanning from the reign of William and Mary in 1689 to the death of George II in 1760. Engraved frontispiece of the author with tissue guard in Volume I. Armorial bookplate to front pastedown of each volume, bearing the name &#39;William Phillips. The works were originally designed as a continuation of the work of David Hume, an eminent historian of the eighteenth century. Hume&#39;s works ended with the deposition of the CatholicJames II in favour of his Protestant sister Mary, and her Dutch husband William of Orange. In fourteen months from 1755 to 1757 Smollett wrote his four-volume Complete History of England, having instructed his servant to deny me to all those with whom I had no express business (Letters, 46). Revised in 1758, the Complete History was offered for sale in 100 sixpenny weekly pamphlets, and by 28 September 1758 he noted with satisfaction that weekly sales exceeded 10,000 copies (ibid. , 73), realizing 500 for the author. Hume wrote to Andrew Millar, bookseller, of this extraordinary run upon Dr. Smollett (Hume, Letters, 1. 273), and he jocularly reproved William Robertson for replacing him near the historical summit of Parnassus, immediately under Dr. Smollett (ibid. , 1. 302). The success of Smollett&#39;s History may be explained by reference to his statement of intent in his prefatory Plan: his approach is factual, not theoretical or philosophical; he will eschew conjecture and national, religious, and political partiality; he will consult only the most legitimate of sources; and his style will make his material accessible. Inevitably there were dissonant voices, and Smollett was accused of being Jacobite and papist, most notably by Thomas Comber. Whig policy towards Scotland, and what he perceived as the corruption of Walpole&#39;s administration, had weakened his enthusiasm for the party to which his family was traditionally loyal. Surprised to hear of Glaswegian approval, he predicted the last volume will be severely censured by the west country whigs of Scotland, but he reiterated I have, as far as in me lay, adhered to Truth without espousing any faction (Letters, 65). In 1758 he took charge of the production of a Universal History and contributed the sections on France, Italy, and Germany. DNBCondition: In marbled calf bindings with decorative gilt detailing. Externally rubben. Spine labels missing. Internally, tight and firmly bound. Pages generally very bright and clean, withspotting to the first and last few pages. Overall: GOOD..
