Some toning to text, light dampstaining to upper corner of rear quarter of text block, interior otherwise clean. * First edition. This enthusiastically anti-British work details the ways Britain has manipulated international trade laws in its favor, and against the interests of Spain. It sketches the history of British politics as it affected the country's foreign entanglements, and lists some of the tricks used by Britain to win over international opinion. Inspired by Adam Smith, Severo discusses a wide variety of trades and industries, including whaling, herring, fishing, the trade in coal and tobacco, and shipbuilding, describing the shipping routes used by British merchant vessels and British trade with India, the Americas (including South America) and the Baltic. Severo analyses the effect of British trade laws, and the enthusiasm with which the British sing (and mean) Rule Britannia. OCLC locates 2 copies in North America (at Harvard and Yale).

        The Sacred Egyptian Bean

      London: Dr. Thornton, 1799-1807 - Dr. Robert John Thornton (c.1765-1832) Hand-colored engraving from Temple of Flora London: Dr. Thornton, 1799-1807 32” x 37” framed Dr. Robert Thornton was determined that his country produce the greatest series of botanical illustrations of all time, and his Temple of Flora is unsurpassed as a botanical document of the Romantic era. Thornton assembled the finest flower painters to paint the original designs that served as the basis for the engravings, and no expense was spared in their production. They are the first botanicals to include landscape backgrounds laden with symbolic, sentimental, and dramatic elements. It is the forceful stylization of flowers, as well as their historical, allegorical and/or fanciful backgrounds, that place the Temple of Flora among the greatest botanical books of all time. The work was first issued in parts between 1799 and l807. Thornton intended the work as a pictorial celebration, accompanied by prose and verse text, of the classification system of Linnaeus. He employed the artists Peter Henderson, Philipp Reinagle, and others to paint the plants, each in an exotic and romantic setting. Thornton exhausted his fortune on the book’s production, but in the process he created one of the most beautiful and distinctive works of botanical art of the modern era.

        [Plums] Carnation Plum, Wine Sour Plum, Dauphine Plum

      [London]: G. Brookshaw, 1807. Aquatint engraving, with some stipple, printed in colours and finished by hand. In good condition. A fine image from Brookshaw's masterpiece: 'Pomona Britannica; or, A Collection of the Most Esteemed Fruits'. George Brookshaw's 'Pomona Britannica' is the finest work on fruit and flowers ever produced. Its breathtaking images display a level of technical virtuosity and beauty that distinguish this magnificent work as a true work of art. As a retired cabinetmaker, Brookshaw produced his seminal botanical study late in his career, at first publishing it in parts and then as a complete edition in 1812. The fact that this outstanding work took ten years to complete is evident in the quality of its images and the care with which Brookshaw executed each individual picture. 'Pomona Britannica' was produced as a visual record of the best available varieties of fruit in an attempt to encourage gardeners to experiment with growing fruit, and illustrates examples found in the Royal gardens at Hampton Court, Kensington Gardens, and the private gardens of the Prince of Wales in Blackheath. 'Pomona Britannica' differs from other botanical works in its dark aquatinted backgrounds and its stylized compositions. By using aquatint to create a contrasting background, Brookshaw manages to produce a truly dramatic effect. His use of stylized composition distinguishes his pictures from the dry scientific illustrations found in other botanical studies and creates an exceptionally beautiful visual experience. 'Pomona Britannica' is not only a didactic study, it is a masterpiece of illustration in which every picture is a testament to the artist's talent and ingenuity. Cf. Dunthorne 50; cf. Great Flower Books (1990) p.81; cf. Nissen BBI 244; cf. Sandra Raphael Oak Spring Pomona 40a.

        is a Proof of his Anxiety for its quick arrival in India and is a mark of his esteem of his most obedt. and faithful, humble Servt. J.A. Camberledge. To Captain H.E.R. Baker of H.M.S. Jupiter and Commodore of the E.I. Fleet. This Chart of a new Passage tho' which he conducted the Fleet in August 1807

      1807 - Manuscript chart of the track of H.M.S. Jupiter for the year 1807 Manuscript chart, with the tracks of HC Surrey, and HMS Jupiters convoy of 11 East Indiamen, naval ledger to verso, minor worming. The chart depicts the track of H.M.S. Jupiter passing Madagascar in the year 1807. As the chart states:'The track of His Majesty's Ship Jupiter Commodore Baker in 1807 having under his Convoy eleven Indiamen who being prevented going to the north by constant Northerly Winds on getting the SE Trade carried the Fleet thro' this passage without meeting any Island or Shaol'As is stated above she was acting as escort for eleven East Indiamen. The continuing war with France had left many of the convoys to India, the East Indies, and China vulnerable to attack by French ships. As a reaction to this threat the British began to sail in convoy and, as here, with a military escort. H.M.S. Jupiter was a 50 gun fourth rate ship-of-the-line launched in 1778. She was wrecked on the 10th December 1808 - just three months after her return from the East - when she struck a sunken rock in Vigo Bay.The chart also bears the track of the East Indiaman Surrey dated 1805.

        System der Wissenschaft. Erster Theil (all), die Phänomenologie des Geistes.

      Bamberg u. Würzburg, bey Joseph Anton Goebhardt, 1807. 8vo. Bound in a magnificent recent pastiche-binding in brown half calf with elaborately gilt spine. Small old owner's label (Dr. med. W.O. Braun) and contemporary owner's inscription (W. Kiehl) to title-page. Internally very nice and clean, with the usual light occasional brownspotting (due to the paper quality). A few tiny worm holes in the blank margin of a few leaves. Title-page + XCI, (3 - errata [crossed out in cont. hand]), (8 - contents + half title), 765, (1), (2, -adverts) pp.. The very rare first edition of Hegel's first major work, "Phenomenology of Spirit", in which he gave the first systematic account of his own philosophy. The Phenomenology of Spirit can be read as the itinerary of human reason. It traces the development of the categories of reason from the basic categories of sense perception to the manifestations of absolute spirit as religion, art, and philosophy. As the historical coming into being of reason coincides with the genesis of its self-awareness, the Phenomenology of Spirit also offers a justification of the human condition. The importance of Hegel's work for the development of modern thought cannot be overestimated. The dialectical structures which keep in place Hegel's thought shall determine the trajectory of Marx and - through the lectures of Alexandre Kojève - the course of modern French philosophy
