        [Tract volume containing 7 pamphlets by Sinclair bound together presumably on his behalf.]

      London: , 1782-3. 7 works bound in 1 volume, octavo (202 x 125 mm). Contemporary half calf, marbled paper boards, red morocco label to spine, compartments ruled in gilt. Armorial bookplate to front pastedown of the Kinnaird baronetcy of Perthshire. Pages trimmed in the binding process, most noticeable on the title pages, very good copies. Six early individual works and one duplicate by the Scottish agriculturalist and politician, bound together presumably at his request. Thoughts on the Naval Strength of the British Empire (the fifth pamphlet included in this volume) "began what was to become a vast list of publications" (ODNB) by Sinclair, and he wrote prolifically on agriculture, political economy, government finance, and health. Between 1790-1 he produced the vast 21-volume Statistical Account of Scotland, for which he is generally credited with the first use of the word "statistics" in the English language. The Sinclair family owned about a quarter of Caithness county during the 18th and 19th centuries, and Sinclair began his political career by representing it at the general election of 1780. He shaped much of the surrounding countryside, having planned the town of Thurso and encouraged the establishment of the British fishing industry in nearby Wick. He was also a major catalyst behind the creation of the Board of Agriculture in 1793 of which he was the first president. Despite needing a house in London for his political career, his family home was in Edinburgh. In 1791, the farmer and journalist James Anderson wrote to Jeremy Bentham: "Of Sir John Sinclair you entertain, with justice, a high opinion, respecting his industry and application. In these respects, perhaps, I know no man who is his equal, and I believe his dispositions at bottom are very good... he has the art of picking up ideas from one and another, and then bringing them out in some measure as his own. He may thus be the means of doing much good, and... he has, in this way, been already of much use, and may be of more" (Milne, letter 782). Bound up together are the following texts: 1. Lucubrations During a Short Recess. London: printed for J. Debrett, 1782. Bound without the half-title. First edition of the author's second work which provides a theoretical support to the idea of parliamentary reform. 2. Duplicate copy of Lucubrations During a Short Recess as described above. 3. Lucubrations during a Short Recess containing A Plan for a More Equal Representation of the People. London: printed for J. Debrett, 1783. With the one-page publisher's advertisement to the rear. Title page with annotation in ink "from the author" trimmed in the binding process, lower corner of title page partially uncut. Second edition corrected. 4. Hints addressed to the Public. Calculated to dispel the gloomy ideas which have been lately entertained of the state of our finances. London: printed for T. Cadell, 1783. Title page with annotation in ink "from the author" trimmed in the binding process, corrections made in ink to 12 pages. First edition. Goldsmiths' 12502. 5. Thoughts on the Naval Strength of the British Empire. London: printed for T. Cadell, 1782. With an additional printer's blank to the rear. First edition of Sinclair's first book in which he argued for the superiority of the British navy above those of France and Spain, in contradiction with many of his contemporary's opinions. Goldsmiths' 12374. 6. Memoir: containing a Plan for Re-establishing the Public Credit, and Finances of the Country. London: [n. pub.], 1783. First edition. 7. Reflexions on the Expediency of Increasing the Present Number of the Representatives of the People. London: printed for T. Cadell, 1782. Minor loss to top right corner of title page but text unaffected. First edition.

        Autograph Letter Signed 1849

      French composer (1782-1871), who focused mostly on opera, composing almost 50 of them - his most important creations include Fra Diavolo and La Muette de Portici. Autograph letter signed by him, dated in Paris on January 31st, 1849, to the director of an opera house, on letterhead from the Conservatoire National de Musique et Declamation, Paris. Letter is in French, and is sold untranslated. Auber respectfully asks to borrow a few accessories only to be found in this person´s theater, for an upcoming performance of La Gazza Ladra (La Pie Voleuse, in French) by students of the Conservatoire. Auber mentions that in the past, a previous director has agreed to help. One page, sized 5 x 8 inches, in excellent condition. ALSO INCLUDED is a vintage print of the composer, sized 9.25 x 12.5 inches (actual image is 7.5 x 5.75 inches), a perfect companion to the letter if framed together. See photos.

        ACTS PASSED AT A GENERAL ASSEMBLY, BEGUN AND HOLDEN AT JACKSONSBURGH, IN THE STATE OF SOUTH-CAROLINA, ON TUESDAY THE EIGHTH DAY OF JANUARY, IN THE YEAR OF OUR LORD ONE THOUSAND SEVEN HUNDRED AND EIGHTY-TWO.TO TUESDAY, THE TWENTY-SIXTH DAY OF FEBRUARY, IN THE SAID YEAR.

      [Philadelphia]: John Dunlap, [1782]. - 46pp. Folio. Antique-style three quarter calf and marbled boards, gilt, leather label. Ink ownership inscription, small repair, and small area of loss to top edge of titlepage (not affecting text), some dampstaining, first half of the page numbers re-numbered by hand in ink. Very good. A scarce Revolutionary imprint recording the acts passed in the January/February session of the South Carolina General Assembly in 1782. It is apparently John Dunlap's only devoted printing of a South Carolina legal work. A likely reason for Dunlap's involvement with the printing involves the British occupation of Charleston, which lasted from the Spring of 1780 until December 1782. Printing by the revolutionaries in British-occupied Charleston, especially of official American legislative publications, would surely have been tough to accomplish.

      Double-page engraved sheet with four hand-colored 18th century maps of Jamaica, including a map of Kingston showing major roads, the main plaza now known as Saint William Grant Park, the church, and the two cemeteries for foreigners and negros; a map of Port Royal depicting roads, Fort Charles, the Hanover trench, the city walls, the shipyard and ship warehouses, the plaza, and the church; a map of the port of Bluefields including the town of Savana la Mar, Bluefield Bay, rivers, and other small coastal towns; and a map of the ports of Kingston and Port Royal with Hunts Bay, the Great Salt Pond, and major roads and rivers. 15-1/2 by 18 inches sheet size. Two small tears at lower margin with old tape residue and staining. Madrid, 1782. In creating these rare maps of Jamaica, López took information from earlier projections by Jacques Bellin and Thomas Jefferys. Together with his father, Tomás López de Vargas Machuca, Juan was responsible for Spain's most prolific output of eighteenth-century maps and charts. Very scarce; as of January 2018, WorldCat locates two holdings in North America with one of the four maps each.

He was also an author, who wrote about the history of the West Indies. He produced John Elphinstone's map of Scotland (1746), Geographia Scotiae (1749), and The Small English Atlas (1749) with Thomas Jefferys. The Large English Atlas (with Bowen 1749?60) was a serious attempt to cover England at large scale. In 1755 Kitchin engraved the Mitchell Map map of North AmericaHe worked for London Magazine. He produced 170 maps for London Magazine (1747?83). Kitchin was the head hydrographer for the King of England. Kitchin frequently stole the works of other cartographers, which is one reason why he created so much work as a cartographer.

        Confessions de J.J. Rousseau, suivies des Rêveries du promeneur solitaire.

      Geneva N.p. 1782 - An Exquisite Copy of the First Edition of Rousseau’s " Confessions" ROUSSEAU, J[ean]-J[acques]. Les Confessions de J.J. Rousseau, suivies des Rêveries du promeneur solitaire. Geneva: [no publisher,] 1782. First edition of the first six books of the Confessions and first edition of all of the Reveries of a Solitary Walker. Two works in two octavo volumes ( 7 1/4 x 4 3/4 inches; 183 x 119 mm). [4], 471, [1, blank]; [4], 279, [1, blank], 300 pp. Woodcut head-pieces. Bound with both half-titles. Contemporary full marbled calf. Boards single-ruled in blind. Both spines tooled in gilt and with two green morocco spines labels, lettered in gilt. All edges marbled. Marbled endpapers. Some very minor rubbing to edges and spine extremities. With two signatures in volume I very lightly toned, otherwise internally very clean. An exceptionally clean and bright copy in an absolutely exquisite contemporary binding. These first six books of the Confessions were the first part of the eagerly anticipated work to appear in print; they were rushed to the press as soon as available, though the final six books appeared only in 1789 in a collected edition of Rousseau’s works. Although the identification of the first edition has long been a contended question, Tchémerzine argued that it is "probable" that this edition is "the first separate edition", but R.A. Leigh (following J. Calemard in 1927) has conclusively proven that the present edition is in fact the true first. Formerly, it was generally supposed that the first edition consisted of Volumes 19 and 20 of the posthumous collected works published in Geneva in 1782. However, the work of Leigh and Calemar shows that the edition at hand is the first appearance in print of any part of this work, that this edition was the first on the market, and that it preceded the subscriber’s copies of the Oeuvres posthumes. The latest research is close to that of Dufour, the standard Rousseau bibliographer, who assigns this edition a number prior to that of collected works, but does not take a definite stand on priority. This edition was on sale by the end of April 1782, and was rapidly pirated. Tchmerzine X, p. 63 (b). Dufour 1.238, nos. 340 and 350. Senelier 1.898. See R.A.
