         The series of four separately issued coloured aquatint views of the Pacific: View of Owhyhee, one of the Sandwich Islands; View of Morea, or Eimo, one of the Society Islands; View of Huaheine, one of the Society Islands, showing the Resolution and Discovery at anchor in the magnificent harbour of O Wharre; View of Charlotte Sound in New Zealand [sic; actually Matavai Bay, Tahiti]

      London 1787 - The complete set of four aquatints, each 440 x 600 mm., handcoloured; a fine set; complete with full captions (often lacking), mounted and framed. A full set of the four beautiful handcoloured aquatints, prepared from watercolours by John Cleveley after original drawings made by his brother James in the South Seas. Perhaps the most magnificent Pacific marine prints ever issued, they have been described as 'the kind of prints that anyone who travelled with Cook, whether officer, midshipman or able seaman, might want to possess to remind him and his family of the days when he travelled with Cook' (Joppien & Smith, III, p.221). Each of the four images shows Resolution and Discovery at anchor in the Society and Sandwich islands. The settings are ideals of Pacific beauty, and particularly of the moments of contact between the European crews and the islanders; whether it is a peaceful transaction being carried out alongside a beached cutter, or the colour and violence of Cleveley's version of Cook's death in Kealakekua Bay.They are based on designs by James Cleveley, who was ship's carpenter on the expedition; although not formally trained, he appears to have been a proficient artist. After the voyage returned to England in October 1780 his brother John, a professional draughtsman, took the sketches made on the voyage ("drawn on the spot", according to the original prospectus issued for the prints), and worked them up into finished watercolours. John Cleveley was a maritime painter who followed in the tradition established by his father. He was known for his watercolours and his skill as a draughtsman, and it was this renown that led to his being appointed draughtsman to Sir Joseph Banks' voyage to Iceland in 1772 (after Banks' famous withdrawal from Cook's second voyage).These aquatints were prepared in 1787-8. In the process of preparing them for European eyes, the landscape has been tamed and the islanders portrayed in a manner both dignified and classical. The finished works portray the Pacific islands and their inhabitants in a picturesque and idealised manner, which perhaps has more to do with conforming to European notions of a Pacific Arcadia than specific representations of the islands as they were.Rare in any state, this excellent set retains the original captions, which are often lacking. Some very light foxing; well framed.

         BELIZE: MAP OF A PART OF YUCATAN, PART OF THE EASTERN SHORE WITHIN THE BAY OF HONDURAS ALLOTTED TO GT. BRITAIN FOR THE CUTTING OF LOGWOOD IN CONSEQUENCE OF THE CONVENTION SIGNED 14 JULY 1786. BY A BAY-MAN.

      Copper engraving with original wash colour (Very Good, some minor professional restoration to centrefold), 55 x 80 cm (21.5 x 31.5 inches). - London, 1787. This very rare, separately published map is the cartographic ‘Birth Certificate’ of what is today Belize, being the first printed map to depict the region in the wake of the ‘Logwood Treaty’ (1786), the agreement which legally conferred British control over the region for the first time. The map is also the first broadly accurate map of modern Northern Belize, said to have been drafted by a "Bay-Man", or resident of the region, most likely a colonist with official responsibilities for land management. The map was printed by William Faden, then the World’s leading commercial map publisher, and Geographer to King George III. The map seeks to establish the limits of the newly-confirmed colony, as well as to underpin the legitimacy of the British settlement in the region, based on the historical precedents of occupation and activity. The map covers what is approximately the northern half of modern Belize (from Dangriga northwards), which was then the focus of British interest in the region. While far from being scientifically precise, the map is nevertheless broadly accurate, with major features placed roughly in the correct place and interrelation, rendering the map of considerable practical use. The map shows the region to sparsely populated with British settlements concentrated on the New River, in the north, featuring several named properties. Traditionally, British interests had operated in the region on an informal basis, primarily for the purpose of harvesting valuable Logwood and Mahogany stands, and innumerable locations of which are noted on the map, along with notes as to their qualities. In this sense, the work is a highly detailed natural resource map. Spain, the regional hegemon, had long actively contested the British presence in the Bay of Honduras. It was only in the period immediately before the present map was issued that British rights in the region were conferred international legitimacy, as agreed by Spain. As shown on map, the areas bathed in a pink wash, running between the Río Hondo, in the north, and the Black Creek and Belize River, in the south, were recognized as being open to British activities by the Treaty of Paris (1783). The tract to the south, located between the Belize River and the Sibun River, bathed in a yellow wash, was opened to British development by the Convention of London, popularly known as the ‘Logwood Treaty’ of 1786. The small areas coloured in orange indicate locations of British settlement prior to the aforementioned treaties. The two treaty tracts, as indicated on the map, formed the basis of what was officially known as the colony of ‘His Majesty’s Settlement in the Bay of Honduras’, later British Honduras, and modern Belize. The present work was considered, by both the Crown and commercial concerns, to be the authoritative map defining the parameters of the new colony and, in this sense, it serves as the cartographic ‘Birth Certificate’ of what would become Belize. Accordingly, it legitimizes the British presence in the region, establishing the basis for the permanent settlement and the future expansion of the colony. In the words of the historian, Odile Hoffman, the present work is a "Mapped History" of the British presence in the Bay of Honduras, stubbornly carved out of the Hispano-American world. The map features innumerable British place names, named properties, as well as locations of British logging sites, which are pointedly asserted as being well-established, with notes reading "[home to] English Logwood Cutters [for] 30 years", while some logging areas are noted as having already been "cut out". Expressive toponymy, such as ‘Rogues Point’, future site of Belize City, and ‘Rebellions Creek’ appear along with names intimately connected to the natural environment, such as ‘Mangrove River’. The ‘References’, in the right, below the title, employ letters to identify the locations events relating to the Baymen’s efforts to defend their territory against Spanis

         Bibliotheca Maphaei Pinellii Veneti Magno Jam Studio Collecta, a Jacopo Morellio Bibliothecæ Venetæ D. Marci Custode Descripta et Annotationibus Illustrata

      Venice: Carlo Palese, sold by Lorenzo Baseggio, 1787. First edition. Engraved portrait frontispiece of Pinelli by F. Bartolozzi in vol. 1, large fold-out engraved plate of the Pinelli papyrus in vol. 3, five engraved plates of Egyptian and classical sculpture in vol. 5. 6 vols. 8vo. Contemporary quarter vellum, paint-speckled "tutti frutti" boards. Fine. First edition. Engraved portrait frontispiece of Pinelli by F. Bartolozzi in vol. 1, large fold-out engraved plate of the Pinelli papyrus in vol. 3, five engraved plates of Egyptian and classical sculpture in vol. 5. 6 vols. 8vo. Pinelli Library Catalogue with Prices Realized. A beautiful, large-margined copy of the catalogue of the great Pinelli library in Venice, written by Abbé Morelli, of the Biblioteca Marciana, for the purposes of dispersal. The library was assembled over the course of 200 years by the Morelli family, whose members were Stampatori Ducali, or offical printers to the Roman Senate. The last in the line, Maffeo Pinelli, died in 1785. The Pinelli library, which contained more than 12,000 items, including early printing, Greek and Latin manuscripts of the 11-16th centuries, and ancient Egyptian papyri, was bought en bloc by London bookseller James Edwards and his associates, Robson and Clarke, and brought to auction in two London sales in 1789-90. A separate auction catalogued was prepared under the title Bibliotheca Pinelliana: A Catalogue of the Magnificent and Celebrated Library of Maffei Pinelli, Late of Venice (London, 1789). Highlights of the sale included the second volume of the 36-line Gutenburg Bible (item 125 here), bought by Sir George Shuckburgh for 14 guineas, and the 1462 Fust and Schoeffer Bible, sold for 30 pounds (item 126). (The library is not to be confused with the collection assembled by Gian Vincenzo Pinelli (1535-1601) and later incorporated into the Biblioteca Ambrosiana.) This copy in a colorful "tutti frutti" Italian binding of paint-speckled boards, taller than the Breslauer copy and comparable to the Lisburne-Abbey copy (sold Christie's 2015), and with the prices realized of the London sales supplied in a contemporary hand in the margins - certainly a laborious task, as the library catalogue and sale catalogue to not exactly correspond. Taylor, Book Catalogues, pp. 97-98. Provenance: Marlborough Rare Books (with Edith Spencer collation note); Pierre Beres (his sale, 8 July 2005, lot B-1148)

         The History of New Holland, from its First Discovery in 1616, to the Present Time. With a particular account of its produce and inhabitants; and a description of Botany Bay: also, a list of the Naval, Marine, Military and Civil Establishment.

      John Stockdale, London 1787 - Octavo, with two folding maps handcoloured in outline; a most attractive copy in contemporary tree calf, the ornately gilt spine skilfully renewed. First edition of the essential precursor book for the First Fleet, the widely read description of Australia published to coincide with the departure of the Fleet for New South Wales, including a description of the planned penal colony and a description of the command of the settlement.Planning for the First Fleet proceeded rapidly following Lord Sydney's speech to the Lord Commissioners of the Treasury in August 1786. Not surprisingly, public interest in the radical scheme was considerable and the enterprising publisher John Stockdale rushed this book through the press to appease popular demand. The fine handcoloured maps detail the continent, Botany Bay and, most interestingly, the 'Passage from England to Botany Bay in New Holland 1787', showing the route that the Fleet must take.In keeping with the public contention surrounding the issue of transportation to New South Wales, this book includes an extract on banishment derived from William Eden's Principles of Penal Law. The inclusion of this extract has led to the traditional misattribution to Eden of the whole book, whose compiler in fact remains unknown to this day. The History of New Holland comprises a readable summary of information about Australia, including the early discovery of the Western Australian coast and the later explorations of Captain Cook on the eastern seaboard. As a description of Australia, it is essentially a synthesis for those unwilling to navigate the voluminous works of earlier mariners. It draws considerably on the work of William Dampier -- although the unknown compiler comments upon the 'roughness of his style'. Provenance: Private collection (Sydney).

Contemporary marbled cardboards with lettering-piece on spines. A beautiful uncut copy. FIRST EDITION, privately printed and edited by Jacopo Morelli, the librarian of the Marciana Library, of the catalogue of the celebrated Maffeo Pinelli's book collection, one of the most significant in Europe. The catalogue was published with the purpose of selling the library, which was actually purchased soon after, for £6000, from Maffeo's heirs by the British bookseller James Edwards together with his partners Robson and Clarke to be sold at auction in London. The sale took place in two sessions in 1789 and 1790. Pinelli's is one of the most important Italian private library catalogues ever published. Vols. 1-3 contains classical and oriental books (7953 titles); vols. 3-4 Italian literature, manuscripts, incunables, French, English and Spanish books, books on vellum, medals, etc. (overall 4610 items). The final volume provides the essential indexes. Maffeo Pinelli was born into a wealthy family, whose members for almost two centuries were the official Ducal printers to the Republic of Venice. Beside the family business, Maffeo assembled in his life a valuable collection of coins, medals, books, prints, statues and paintings that were put up for sale after his death in 1585. In the same year, his fellow student and friend Jacopo Morelli compiled the catalogue of the paintings (Catalogo di quadri raccolti dal fu Signor Maffeo Pinelli ed ora posti in vendita, Venezia 1785) and, upon request of Maffeo's stepfather, Daniele Zanchi, the catalogue of the library (cf. L. Borean e S. Mason, Il collezionismo d'arte a Venezia. Il Settecento, a Venice, 2009, p. 289). "Ce catalogue est un des meilleurs qui existent, tant par la valeur et le nombre des ouvrages curieux qui le composent, que par la manière dont il est redigé, et par les notes savants dont l'a enrichi le célèbre M. Morelli. Maphée Pinelli, directeur de l'imprimerie ducale à Venise, avoit l'une des plus belles bibliothèques de l'Europe" (Peignot, p. 118).

         The History of New Holland, from its First Discovery in 1616, to the Present Time. With a particular account of its produce and inhabitants; and a description of Botany Bay: also, a list of the Naval, Marine, Military and Civil Establishment...

      London: John Stockdale, 1787. Octavo, with two folding maps handcoloured in outline; a most attractive copy in contemporary tree calf, the ornately gilt spine skilfully renewed. First edition of the essential precursor book for the First Fleet, the widely read description of Australia published to coincide with the departure of the Fleet for New South Wales, including a description of the planned penal colony and a description of the command of the settlement.Planning for the First Fleet proceeded rapidly following Lord Sydney's speech to the Lord Commissioners of the Treasury in August 1786. Not surprisingly, public interest in the radical scheme was considerable and the enterprising publisher John Stockdale rushed this book through the press to appease popular demand. The fine handcoloured maps detail the continent, Botany Bay and, most interestingly, the 'Passage from England to Botany Bay in New Holland 1787', showing the route that the Fleet must take.In keeping with the public contention surrounding the issue of transportation to New South Wales, this book includes an extract on banishment derived from William Eden's Principles of Penal Law. The inclusion of this extract has led to the traditional misattribution to Eden of the whole book, whose compiler in fact remains unknown to this day. The History of New Holland comprises a readable summary of information about Australia, including the early discovery of the Western Australian coast and the later explorations of Captain Cook on the eastern seaboard. As a description of Australia, it is essentially a synthesis for those unwilling to navigate the voluminous works of earlier mariners. It draws considerably on the work of William Dampier -- although the unknown compiler comments upon the 'roughness of his style'. Provenance: Private collection (Sydney). In fine condition.

         Antique Print-TRAVELLER-DONKEY-MERCHANDISE-Swanevelt-Woollett-Pouncy-1787

      - Original antique print, titled: 'Morning'. It shows: a group of four travelling the countryside. One of the women is seated on a donkey. The others are all carrying wares. They are walking beside a stream and have just passed a bridge leading to some houses. Original etching/engraving on a vellin paper type. Engraved by Wm. Woollett and B.T.Pouncy after Swanniveldt. William Woollett (1735-1785) was an English engraver, born in a family originating in the Netherlands. His works combine etching, drypoint and engraving, and his works rank among the greatest English engraving. Benjamin Thomas Pouncy (?-1799) was an English draughtsman and engraver. He was trained by William Woollett, and is said to have been his brother-in-law. Later in life he produced some excellent engravings after contemporary masters. Herman van Swanevelt (1603-1655) was a Dutch Baroque painter and etcher. His first works date around 1623, and were produced in Paris. He moved to Rome in 1629, where he joined the Italianate Landscape movement. He is seen as one of the first painters to not include biblical and mytholgocal subjects in his paintings. Condition: Very good, given age. Top edge of the sheet a little browned, dampstain in the top right corner. Some small blemishes in middle of the image: small ink stains as a result of the printing process.General age-related light toning and/or staining from handling.

Erste Ausgabe, in einer Auflage von nur 50 Exemplaren erschienen. - Descriptio Austria S. 184. Austria Picta 25.1. Döflinger S. 64 f: "Anders verhält es sich mit der auf der Josephinischen Landesaufnahme basierenden zwölfblättrigen `Mappa von dem Land ob der Enns (1787, Maßstab 1 : 864000)`: Erst nach wiederholtem Ansuchen der oberösterreichischen Stände gab Joseph II. seine Einwilligung, von der 1772 vollendeten Aufnahme des Landes ob der Enns in bezug auf die Abbildung des Geländes veränderte (perspektivische Darstellung anstatt der für militärische Zwecke weit besser geeigneten Grundrißzeichnung) Reduktion anfertigen und diese unter strengsten Sicherheitsvorkehrungen von den Wiener Stechern Carl Schütz und Franz Müller in der Wiener Ingenieurakademie gravieren zu lassen. 1787 war die sogenannte `Ständische Karte von Oberösterreich` dann endgültig zum Druck bereit, und die Stände erhielten 50 Exemplare, die aber nur an bestimmte Mitglieder abgegeben werden durften. Wie wirkungsvoll diese Maßnahmen zum Schutz vor Mißbrauch waren, beweist der Umstand, daß die Franzosen erst bei der Besetzung von Linz (1800 / 1801) in den Besitz von zwei Exemplaren der trotz aller Umarbeitungen überaus wertvollen Karte kamen". - "Die in monumentalem Stil ausgeführte dekorative Titelumrahmung zeigt im Vordergrund ausgewählte Produkte, die den Reichtum des Landes symbolisieren, und im Hintergrund eine malerische Donaulandschaft" (Austria Picta). - Gute Abdrucke auf Honig-Papier. - Leicht gebräunt und vereinzelt etw. fleckig.

Overall in very good condition. Early [contemporary?] ink inscription on front free endleaf: "Este Arte he de Joseph de Campos // do Lugar dos Casastos [?] de Cabanas." Further ink inscriptions [in the same hand?] on verso of rear free endleaf: "Campos" [in upper outer corner]; "Cabanas" [in upper inner corner]; and "Joseph de Campos" [in lower outer corner].

(4 ll.), 43, (1) pp., 2 engraved plates [1 of them folding]. *** FIRST and ONLY EDITION of this instruction manual for those learning to sing, including instructions on plainsong. It is a true beginner's guide to reading music - the perfect primer for an intelligent would-be musician who is entirely lacking in prior training. Part I offers verbal descriptions of keys (using solfège, as is common), notes, musical notation including lines and spaces, the F-, G- and C-clefs (including a description of the C-clef as movable, and describing what lines it can be moved to), accidentals, notation of accidentals, complete lists of relative major and minor keys (excepting C major / A minor, which one can assume is implied), examples and explanations of intervals from a whole step to an octave, three basic tempos including common ("quaternary") time, three-four ("ternary") time, and half ("binary") time and the various numbers than can reasonably be imposed over each signature's respective 4, 3, or 2 (happily, there is no mention of complex, additive, fractional or irrational time signatures), and a verbal explanation of note lengths which might confound the beginner if not for the folding "Pauta" plate that is helpfully referred to for visual reference.Part II builds on Part I by delving deeper into the properties of scales and key signatures, including chords and tri-tones.The author (1759-1833), Porto's most notable musician of the late eighteenth and early nineteenth century, was choirmaster at the Cathedral of his native Porto for many years. When he published this Resumo, at age barely 28, he already taught singing, and by 1796 was also a popular instructor for the guitar, publishing a work on that subject. He wrote religious compositions (his Tantum ergo was still being sung in Lisbon 80 years later) as well as two operas and several patriotic hymns.*** Innocêncio I, 270: without collation; VIII, 305; XXII, 358.

      St. Petersburg: S.K.R., Typ. of Vilkovsky and Galchyonkov, 1787. 72 pp. 18x11,5 cm. Contemporary light brown half leather with marbled boards and a colour stamped title label on the spine. Bookplate of Sergey Sobolewsky on the front paste down endpaper, paper label with a pencil note by a Soviet bibliophile on the front free endpaper, paper label of Vasily Klochkov's bookstore and a stamp of a Soviet bookshop on the rear pastedown endpaper. Very good. Corners slightly bumped, paper slightly age toned. First edition. Extremely rare. Interesting original travel account by the first Russian to cross the Atlantic and visit the Caribbean Islands. A merchant from Nizhny Novgorod, Vasily Baranshchikov (1756-early 19th century) went to a trade fair and lost considerable amount of money lent by fellow tradesmen. In an attempt to escape he went to Saint Petersburg and became a sailor on a ship bound for Copenhagen. There he was kidnapped and sold to a slave ship which brought him to Saint Thomas Island (then in Danish West India, now a part of the American Virgin Islands). There Baranshchikov served for two months in a Danish military garrison and was then sold as a household servant to a Spanish ''General'' in Puerto Rico. After a year of service Baranshchikov was released and went to Venice as a sailor on an Italian ship; near the Barbary coast the ship was captured by pirates and the traveler was sold into slavery to the Palestine. Baranshchikov was forcibly converted into Islam, eventually brought to Constantinople and married a Turkish woman. In 1785 he escaped to Russia via Bulgaria, Moldavia and Poland, returning to Nizhny Novgorod a year later. On request of his creditors he was put in debt prison, but released with the help of the local bishop. Baranshchikov went to Saint Petersburg and was received by Catherine II and representatives of Saint Petersburg high society. The Empress recommended him to write an account of his travels, which was first published in 1787. All author's fees went for the payment of his debts. The book contains lots of interesting details of everyday life in St. Thomas Island and Puerto Rico (like outfits and salaries of Danish soldiers, ceremony of taking military oath, descriptions of banana plants, coconuts, sugar cane, and coffee), description of Jerusalem and Constantinople, Baranshchikov's service as a Janissary in Turkey, and others. Printed during the Russo-Turkish war of 1787-91, the book became a bestseller and was published four times in the 18th century, all subsequent editions have a slightly edited finale and the ''Supplement, containing the description of Tsargrad [Constantinople] and Turkish spiritual, military and civil authorities''. The text of the first edition finishes with a complaint about Baranshchikov's bankruptcy and life in ''uttermost poverty'' after his return home; all subsequent editions have that part replaced with a praise to the generosity of ''many honorable people of Saint Petersburg'', who ''graciously relieved him from destitution'', the list of the ''honorable people'' includes over twenty names of the members of Russian high society, i.e. State Chancellor Count Alexander Vorontsov, first Russian Minister of Education Ivan Shuvalov, President of the Imperial Academy of Arts Ivan Betskoy, Baron Alexander Stroganov, and others. Our copy bears an armorial bookplate of Sergey Sobolevsky (1803-1870), a noted Russian bibliophile, bibliographer and poet of the Golden Age of Russian Poetry. He was a friend of Alexander Pushkin, Mikhail Lermontov, Adam Mickiewicz, Prosper Mérimée and many other European writers. Sobolevsky's library contained over 25,000 volumes, with the departments of geography and travels, Russian history, and bibliography and books on books. After his death, a part of the library was bought by the British Museum and Leipzig University, the rest was sold at auctions by Leipzig booksellers; the archive was bought by count Sergey Sheremetev and is now deposited in the Russian state collections. A note on the piece of paper attached to the first free endpaper was written by a Soviet bibliophile and reads: ''In the catalogue of ''Mezhdunarodnaya Kniga'' No. 21 from 1933 it is said: First edition of this book has never been registered and it is unclear whether it exists'' (Annotation #213). This copy is from the library of Sobolevsky and is the first, unknown edition. P.S. It is mentioned in Smirnov-Sokolsky's, vol. 1, p. 195'' (Smirnov-Sokolsky, Moya Biblioteka. M., 1969). The book also has a paper label of the bookshop of a famous Saint Petersburg antique book dealer Vasily Klochkov (1861-1915). Svodny Katalog 4575. No paper copies of this first edition found in Worldcat. There are only two copies of the second edition (Harvard, NYPL), and two copies of the fourth edition (Columbia University, State Library of Berlin).

         The Lounger A Periodical Paper, published at Edinburgh in the Years 1785 and 1786

      Edinburgh: printed for William Creech, 1787. First edition of all issues except issues 1 & 2 (third ed), and issues 3-5 & 7 (second edition). With The Lounger Extraordinary; or, Masquerade Monitor bound between issues 56 and 57. Folio (317 x 190 mm). Contemporary marbled boards backed with modern calf. Scattered minor soiling, boards rubbed, a clean copy. First edition of all issues except issues 1 & 2 (third ed), and issues 3-5 & 7 (second edition). With The Lounger Extraordinary; or, Masquerade Monitor bound between issues 56 and 57. Folio (317 x 190 mm). Complete run of all 101 issues published. The Lounger and an earlier journal edited by Mackenzie, The Mirror (1779-80), were "the first Scottish weeklies of their kind. Mackenzie contributed most of the essays and focused on life and society, advocating a way of life based on natural sentiment and harmony. The balance between egotistic and altruistic motives was very much a tenet of the Scottish Enlightenment" (ODNB). Mackenzie (1745-1831), whom Sir Walter Scott called the 'Northern Addison', is perhaps best known for his novel The Man of Feeling (1771); he contributed 57 of the essays in The Lounger. This copy includes a contemporary (or near) manuscript "Key to the Lounger," 5 pp, providing the names of contributors for each issue; the names of contributors (or speculations thereon) have also been inked in a contemporary hand, presumably Whyte's, at the end of many issues. Evidently a subscriber's copy; at the end of the final issue is printed a notice of the publication in volumes of The Lounger, declaring that subscribers who have preserved their numbers will be given a title page gratis. ESTC P1411. Provenance: J Whyte (contemporary ownership inscription)

         A History of the Campaigns of 1780 and 1781, in the Southern Provinces of North America

      T. Cadell, London 1787 - vii, [1]- 518, ii Large quarto (10-7/8 x 8-3/8 inches). expertly rebacked preserving original spine strip, full original tree calf, marbled endpapers, top edges stained dark, others stained yellow. Illustrated with large folding map, "Marches of Lord Cornwallis" with hand coloured routes of troop movements (expertly repaired diagonal tear); the Battle plans of Camden, Guildford and York with hand coloured positions of the various parties, the Siege of Charlestown being the only un-embellished plan, all folding and all in fine, crisp, clean condition. With the two pages of publisher's advertisements. Tarleton, infamous for his brutal tactics, was commander of a Tory cavalry unit, the British Legion, and served in America from May 1776 through the siege of Yorktown. His is one of the principal British accounts of the revolution. Tarleton's use of original documents sets this narrative apart, many of which are included as notes following the chapters. Tarleton served under Cornwallis and one of his primary missions was the capture of Charleston in 1780. He was highly critical of Cornwallis and the British High Command. He attributed his defeat at Cowpens to lack of co-operation from Cornwallis. [Howes T37, "b". Church 1224. Clark I: 317. Sabin 94397]. Slight rubbing of edges, else fine [Attributes: First Edition]

Very good. Corners slightly bumped, paper slightly age toned. First edition. Extremely rare. Interesting original travel account by the first Russian to cross the Atlantic and visit the Caribbean Islands. A merchant from Nizhny Novgorod, Vasily Baranshchikov (1756-early 19th century) went to a trade fair and lost considerable amount of money lent by fellow tradesmen. In an attempt to escape he went to Saint Petersburg and became a sailor on a ship bound for Copenhagen. There he was kidnapped and sold to a slave ship which brought him to Saint Thomas Island (then in Danish West India, now a part of the American Virgin Islands). There Baranshchikov served for two months in a Danish military garrison and was then sold as a household servant to a Spanish ''General'' in Puerto Rico. After a year of service Baranshchikov was released and went to Venice as a sailor on an Italian ship; near the Barbary coast the ship was captured by pirates and the traveler was sold into slavery to the Palestine. Baranshchikov was forcibly converted into Islam, eventually brought to Constantinople and married a Turkish woman. In 1785 he escaped to Russia via Bulgaria, Moldavia and Poland, returning to Nizhny Novgorod a year later. On request of his creditors he was put in debt prison, but released with the help of the local bishop. Baranshchikov went to Saint Petersburg and was received by Catherine II and representatives of Saint Petersburg high society. The Empress recommended him to write an account of his travels, which was first published in 1787. All author's fees went for the payment of his debts. The book contains lots of interesting details of everyday life in St. Thomas Island and Puerto Rico (like outfits and salaries of Danish soldiers, ceremony of taking military oath, descriptions of banana plants, coconuts, sugar cane, and coffee), description of Jerusalem and Constantinople, Baranshchikov's service as a Janissary in Turkey, and others. Printed during the Russo-Turkish war of 1787-91, the book became a bestseller and was published four times in the 18th century, all subsequent editions have a slightly edited finale and the ''Supplement, containing the description of Tsargrad [Constantinople] and Turkish spiritual, military and civil authorities''. The text of the first edition finishes with a complaint about Baranshchikov's bankruptcy and life in ''uttermost poverty'' after his return home; all subsequent editions have that part replaced with a praise to the generosity of ''many honorable people of Saint Petersburg'', who ''graciously relieved him from destitution'', the list of the ''honorable people'' includes over twenty names of the members of Russian high society, i.e. State Chancellor Count Alexander Vorontsov, first Russian Minister of Education Ivan Shuvalov, President of the Imperial Academy of Arts Ivan Betskoy, Baron Alexander Stroganov, and others.
