        A General History of Quadrupeds.

      - The Figures Engraved in Wood by T. Bewick. Newcastle upon Tyne: Hodgson, Beilby, and Bewick, 1791. Second edition, expanded (pp. x, 483). Octavo (20 cm) in full leather, gilt decoration, title in compartment on spine; edges washed with yellow, marbled endpapers. Thomas Bewick (1753- 1828), a contemporary of William Blake, confined his work to more ordinary subjects than those addressed by that mystic poet- engraver. The General History of Quadrupeds (1790) of which this is the second, revised and expanded edition, and the History of British Birds (1797) are Bewick’s most important works, each of which was issued in a number of editions in his lifetime. A complete description of his work as an engraver, however, comprises two entire volumes (1867- 68). Bewick’s Memoir, published by a daughter in 1862, describes ‘an early impulse to draw [which] constantly filled the margins of his schoolbooks’. To his ‘rustic neighbours [he] became an eminent painter, and the walls of their houses were ornamented with an abundance [of] rude productions.’ See also our Thomas Bewick Marginal Drawings & Notes. Bewick’s third great work, completed late in life, was an edition of the Fables of Aesop. Bewick (and those who worked for him) produced wood engravings to decorate, illustrate, and enhance all manner of publications-- ‘more than eighty small books for children.commissioned by some eighteen printers and booksellers.such titles as The Tale of Tommy Trip, Cinderella, Goody Goosecap, and Jack Dandy, as well as many books of fables and riddles and manuals for spelling and reading’ (ODNB). If you look closely at the vignettes here in Quadrupeds (A magnifying glass helps), you will discovery ironic little slices of ordinary life: a mischievous little girl is about to give a horse’s tail a sharp yank, while her mother flies down an orchard ladder to intervene; a traveling exotic animal show, a sad bear in tow, traipses dispiritedly down the road to the next country town; a monkey wielding a straight razor contemplates a hirsute image in a shaving mirror. Spine skilfully repaired; mended tear p. 482, o/w internally clean and tight. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Die Rechte des Menschen. Eine Antwort auf Herrn Burke's Angriff gegen die französische Revolution. Aus dem Englischen übersetzt. Nebst der von Ludwig XVI. angenommenen Konstitutions-Acte.

      Kl.-8. Mit gest. Titelvignette (Portrait Thomas Paines). XVIII, 258 S., Ppbd. d. Zt. m. dreiseitigem Rotschnitt. Erste dt. Ausgabe von Paines Hauptwerk Rights of Man (London 1791), dieser als Reaktion auf Burkes Reflections entstandenen Verteidigung der Französischen Revolution, mit der Paine eine grundlegende Analyse des Menschenrechtsproblems gelang. - [...] Burke faßte in einem einzigen Werk alle Bestürzung und alles Entsetzen zusammen, alles, was die liberal Gesinnten, die den Beginn der Revolution freudig begrüßt hatten, jetzt für die französische Revolution empfanden. Paines Antwort auf Mr. Burkes Angriff hob die Auseinandersetzung auf eine höhere Ebene. Mit einer Kraft und Klarheit, wie sie nicht einmal Burke besaß, entwickelte Paine jene Grundsätze der allgemeinen Menschenrechte, die unabdingbar sein müssen, gleichviel welche Ausschreitungen auch begangen werden, um sie zu erkämpfen [...]. Sieht man aber einmal von dem Aufruhr, der die Veröffentlichung des Buches begleitete, ab, so erkennt man, was die Menschenrechte in Wahrheit sind: der Leitfaden erzliberaler Gesinnung und die klarste aller Darlegungen der tragenden Ideen der Demokratie (Carter/Muir, Bücher die die Welt verändern, S. 444f.). - Einband (bes. Ecken) stark berieben u. bestoßen sowie etw. fleckig. Vorsätze stockfleckig. schwach gebräunt. - Vgl. PMM 241 Stammhammer III, 253 nicht bei Borst.

      Philadelphia: Joseph Crukshank, 1791. viii, 504pp. Light to moderate foxing. Bound in contemporary sheep, rebacked in period style. Good+. Contemporary ownership signature of John Francis Smith. "Collected works of an influential political economist of the period who was often consulted by members of Congress on finance and taxation" [Howes]. The book "presents the reasoning which governed the states in their fluctuating finance from 1776 to the adoption of the Constitution. The author is a very severe critic of the issue of paper money, although he admits that some of the disastrous consequences which he anticipated were not realized. He covers the topics of taxation and paper money," with discussion of "the nature of the political union of the thirteen states, the establishment of the national capital in which the author favors Philadelphia." Webster argues "in favor of the adoption of the constitution," and he gives "a short history of the Bank of North America. The last essay treats of the extent and value of the western unlocated lands. In the appendix are given four scales of appreciation of Continental money by months..." [Larned]. FIRST EDITION.

        Jewish Synagogue Thanks Washington for His Role in Ensuring Civil and Religious Liberty

      Philadelphia, PA 1791 - Pamphlet. The American Museum, or Universal Magazine, for June 1791. Philadelphia, PA: Matthew Carey. Final issue of vol 9. Disbound. Including Moses Seixas' letter to President Washington on behalf of the Newport congregation (based in Touro Synagogue, the oldest synagogue still standing in America). The Seixas letter appears on p. 40 of Appendix II. 192? pp. 8 1/4 x 5 in. In 1789, President George Washington toured New England but did not visit Rhode Island because it had not yet ratified the Constitution. Rhode Island was the last of the original thirteen states to ratify the Constitution, on May 29, 1790. Fewer than three months later, Washington visited Rhode Island with Secretary of State Thomas Jefferson and others. On August 18, 1790, Washington stopped at the Touro Synagogue, and Warden Moses Seixas read this letter from the congregation to Washington.Washington's reply to the Touro letter (which unfortunately is not printed here) is his most famous letter, and one of the greatest statements on religious freedom. Washington's declaration that the U.S. government gives "to bigotry no sanction, to persecution no assistance" is actually drawn from Seixas' letter to him. Washington made loyalty to the nation, rather than a particular creed, the prerequisite for religious freedom and equality. Complete TranscriptAddress of the Hebrew congregation in Newport, Rhode-Island, to the presidentof the united states of America, August 17, 1790. Sir, PERMIT the children of the Stock of Abraham to approach you, with the most cordial affection and esteem for your person & merit-and to join with our fellow Citizens in welcoming you to Newport. With pleasure we reflect on those days-those days of difficulty and danger, when the God of Israel, who delivered David from the peril of the sword, shielded your head in the day of battle: and we rejoice to think, that the same Spirit who rested in the Bosom of the greatly beloved Daniel, enabling him to preside over the provinces of the Babylonish empire, rests, and ever will rest, upon you, enabling you to discharge the arduous duties of CHIEF MAGISTRATE in these states. Deprived, as we heretofore have been, of the invaluable rights of free citizens, we now, with a deep sense of gratitude to the Almighty Disposer of all events, behold a government, erected by the MAJESTY OF THE PEOPLE.-A government, which to bigotry gives no sanction, to persecution no assistance-but generously affords to ALL liberty of conscience and immunities of Citizenship-deeming every one, of whatever nation, tongue or language, equal parts of the great governmental machine. This so ample and extensive federal union whose basis is philanthropy, mutual confidence and public virtue, we cannot but acknowledge to be the work of the Great God, who ruleth in the armies of heaven, and among the inhabitants of the earth, doing whatever seemeth to him good. For all the blessings of civil and religious liberty, which we enjoy under an equal and benign administration, we desire to send up our thanks to the Ancient of days, the great Preserver of men-beseeching him, that the angel, who conducted our forefathers through the wilderness, into the promised land, may graciously conduct you through all the difficulties and dangers of this mortal life-And when, like Joshua, full of days and full of honour, you are gathered to your fathers, may you be admitted into the heavenly paradise, to partake of the water of life, and the tree of immortality. Done and signed by order of the Hebrew congregation, in Newport, Rhode-Island. [signed] Moses Seixas, Warden.Moses Seixas (1744-1809) was born in Rhode Island to Jewish parents who migrated from Portugal. He became a prominent leader in Newport, as warden of the Touro Synagogue of Congregation Jeshuat Israel, Grand Master of the Grand Lodge of Free and Accepted Masons of Rhode Island, and a cofounder of the Bank of Rhode Island.The American Museum, or Univer.

      166 Fleet Street, London: Jordan, J.S., printed for.. VG text block. FINE text BUT pages 1-8 top margins damp stained.. 1791. early Brit ed.. VG text block, disbound. From a sammelband binding. No prelims, first page is tp. Gimbel CS-59. 206x128x18(mm), (1-3),4-90pp. . Damp stained top edge of first four leaves. Small chips from bottom corner of pages 7 & 19. Cracked signature at p23. Quite nice otherwise. The first British printing since 1777. Early British editions were censored. They didn't publish an uncensored edition until mid 1800s. An unusual binding in that a sheet of blank, laid paper has been inserted between each text page with the result that the book is 180 pages long. Three of the laid in leaves have extensive, pencilled anti Paine commentary, three others with just a few sentences. Most of commentary quite legible. Likely written in early 1800s as the long "s" used twice, "chuce" for "chose", "republick" for "republic", words abbreviated by using super script final letters & capitalizing many words internal in a sentence. The following pencilled comment faces p6: "Mr P always avoids with care Reasoning from Facts & the History of Mankind & neglects all together the Authority of the Patriarchs from the first Man to the Dispersion". This faces p23: "All this Reasoning is ably refuted by Mr Shuckford, tho unintentionally". Extensive commentary faces pp16 & 24, the last sentence of which reads: "His Simile is as Contemptible as his Skepticism." Writer is unsigned. Shuckford may be Samuel Shuckford of "The Sacred and Profane History of the World." This Shuckford (d. 1754) was a historian & religious figure. Some commentary is of a religious nature. In a FINE modern slipcase. .

      1791. The author of the document "Mr.Irving to Mr. Pitt" undoubtedly refers to William Pitt. Portions of the document read: <I>"This branch is divided into two distinct Heads namely first the direct Trade of G. Britan Secondly That part of the Trade of the British Colonies and Islands which is not carried on by a direct intercourse with the Mother Country...an extensive view of some of the most Important objects of National concern...I have taken the liberty Sir of troubling you with these remarks, upon the Rates or Estimates in this Office, in order to show that the difference between the value of Imports and Exports is very little to be depended upon, in striking the Balance of Trade, and consequently the Arguments held both in and out of Parliament, and in the voluminous writing of various Authors, upon the subject of commercial Balances, chiefly founded upon the Accounts of the Inspector Generals office...In striking the Balance between this Country & the British West Indies, there are several circumstances to be taken into consideration. To the direct Exports from hence, the value of the Goods exported to Africa ought to be added, because the Slaves purchased with those Goods on the Coast of Guinea are taken off by the West Indies...I forbear making any observation upon our Trade with the States of America...The following account will show the Effect which the restrictions they have put upon our shipping have already had on our carrying Trade to that Country...Prior to the Revolution, the Charges of Collecting the Revenues in France amounted to L 11 17 percent..."</I>

      Romae, Joannis Zempel, 1789-1791. - Folio. C, 634, XXXVII, 688, III pages. Hardcover / Original parchment with gilt lettering on spine Former copy of St.Joseph's College / Mill Hill Library. Brunonis Astensis - (ca. 1040/1050-1123) Initial studies at the Benedictine monastery of S. Perpetua in Asti, where he studied humanities and prepared for the ecclesiastical life; then, he went to study the seven liberal arts at the University of Bologna. He decided to enter the monastery of Monte Cassino but during the trip, he became ill in Siena and the local bishop, Rodolfo, named him canon of the cathedral chapter. Because of his knowledge and piety, he was called to Rome, where he was advisor to four popes. Participated in a Roman synod in 1079; there, he convinced Berengarius of Tours to retract his heresy which denied the real presence of the Lord in the Holy Eucharist; the disputation between the canon and the heretic took place before Pope Gregory VII. Elected bishop of Segni in 1079 (2) by its canons; he accepted after an intervention of Pope Gregory VII. Consecrated in 1080, Campagna of Rome, by Pope Gregory VII. In 1082, returning to Segni from Rome, he was imprisoned by Adolfo di Segni; tradition says that he was miraculously freed. Returned to Rome and there he was imprisoned, together with the pope in mole Adriana (castle of Sant'Angelo). Librarian and chancellor of the Holy Roman Church in 1086. Created cardinal bishop of Segni in a consistory celebrated in 1086 (3). Participated in the papal election of 1088, celebrated in Terracina, in which Pope Urban II was elected. Subscribed papal bulls issued between 1089 and July 20, 1096. In 1095, he accompanied Pope Urban II to the Council of Clermont, in which the First Crusade was called; he went with the pontiff to Avignon Tarasco on September 11, 1095; to Avignon on September 13; to Cluny on October 25; to Clermont on November 18 (he participated in the council celebrated in that city); to Limoges, December 23 to 31; to Charroux, where he participated in the consecration of the abbatial church, on January 10, 1096; to Poitiers on January 22; to Moyenmoutier on March 10; to Tours on March 14 to 20 (he participated in the council celebrated in that city); to Poitiers from March 30 and before April 14; to Nîmes on July 12; and to St.-Gilles on July 20. Did not participate in the papal election of 1099, in which Pope Paschal II was elected. Subscribed papal bulls issued between August 30, 1100 and November 2, 1106. In 1103, he entered the Order of Saint Benedict (Benedictines) at the monastery of Monte Cassino; he was elected abbot in November 1107, keeping his episcopal see. He was sent to France as legate in 1104. In March 1105, during the Lateran Synod, he acted as a judge in a controversy. On September 8 of the same year, he was with the pope in Civita Castellana. He returned to France as legate in 1106. On November 2, 1106, he was in Parma with the pope. On June 4, 1109, Pope Paschal II went to Segni to canonize Bishop Pietro of Anagni, friend of Cardinal Bruno, and most probably, the cardinal was present at the ceremony. He opposed lay investitures of bishops and abbot, even declaring them to be heresy; he criticized Pope Paschal II for granting Emperor Heinrich the privilege of investitures during the pontiff's imprisonment by the emperor April 11, 1111 and demanded that the treaty be annulled. On March 23, 1112, during the Lateran Synod, Pope Paschal II rejected the granting of the privilege of investitures to Emperor Heinrich V; the bishop of Segni was not present at that session of the synod and he continued with his intransgent position; unhappy with the bishop's opposition, the pope asked him resign his abbey and to return to his see of Segni definitively. He participated in the Lateran synod of 1116, but never regained his earlier position in the papal curia. He wrote commentaries on thirteen books of the Holy Bible; a life of Pope St. Leo IX; and one of St. Pietro, bishop of Anagni; a treatise on the [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Paris 1790. - 'Le Vaillant was born at Paramaribo in Dutch Guiana in 1753, and after being educated in Holland, France, and Germany, proceeded to Paris where he studied the natural history collections, and, full of enthusiasm and ambition, decided to travel into the interior of Africa in order to further his opportunities of gaining information by observing the specimens in their native countries. Making the acquaintance of Mr. Temminck, the Treasurer of the Dutch East India Company, he was enabled to proceed to the Cape in one of the Company's ships called the Held-Woltemaade . The narrative is characterised by the intelligent and interesting manner in which it is written.' (Mendelssohn pp.889-890). He was one of the first to study the birds in South Africa.

        The Life of Samuel Johnson, LL.D.

      London: by Henry Baldwin, for Charles Dilly,, 1791 & 1793. Comprehending an Account of His Studies and Numerous Works, in Chronological Order… The Whole Exhibiting a View of Literature and Literary Men in Great Britain for Near a Century During Which He Flourished. In Two Volumes. [Together with:] The Principal Corrections and Additions to the first edition of Mr. Boswell's Life of Dr. Johnson. Together 2 works bound in 2 volumes, quarto (275 x 217 mm). Contemporary tree calf, neatly rebacked with original spines laid down, red morocco title labels renewed to style, oval red numbering pieces laid down on black morocco labels, richly gilt in compartments, sides bordered in gilt with Greek key roll, plain endpapers and edges. Engraved frontispiece portrait of Johnson, round robin and handwriting plates in vol. II. Second state of vol. I (with "give" spelt correctly on p. 135). Corners worn, some foxing, heaviest near the portrait, generally a very good set. First editions, presentation copies, both the Life of Johnson and Principal Corrections with individual autograph presentation inscriptions from the author to Andrew Lumisden (1720–1801), a friend of Boswell's who had assisted in preparing the Life by deciphering Johnson's manuscript notebook of his trip to France in October–November 1775. This assistance is acknowledged in print at the footnote on p. 511, vol. I: "My worthy and ingenious friend, Mr. Andrew Lumisdaine [sic], by his accurate acquaintance with France, enabled me to make out many proper names, which Dr. Johnson had written indistinctly, and sometimes spelt erroneously". The autograph inscriptions read, on the Life, "To Andrew Lumisden Esq: from his old and much obliged friend The Authour", and on the Principal Corrections, "To Andrew Lumisden Esq: from his obliged friend The Authour." Andrew Lumisden was a fascinating character. Educated like Boswell for a respectable career in the law, Lumisden threw it all away in 1745 for the Jacobite cause. He served as the under-secretary and the first clerk of the treasury to the Young Pretender throughout the campaign of 1745–6 and was present at Culloden. Adopting a variety of disguises after the battle, he managed to escape to Paris, where he entered the service of the Old Pretender. He and Boswell became acquainted in Rome in 1765. Lumisden was still in Rome on 23 January 1766 to greet Charles Edward on his accession, but by now felt only a thinly veiled contempt for the Young Pretender and was dismissed from his service on 8 December 1768. From 1769 to 1773 Lumisden resided in Paris, where he gradually distanced himself from the Stuart cause. A member of the royal and antiquaries' societies of Edinburgh, Lumisden corresponded with Boswell, as well as Joseph Banks, Adam Smith, and David Hume. He received a full pardon from the British government in 1778, having done his personal cause some good by buying up a collection of rare books for the Prince of Wales, and in due course returned to Edinburgh. With the bookplates of Sir Thomas Andrew Lumisden Strange (1756–1841) and Thomas Lumisden Strange (1808–1884), respectively nephew and grandnephew of Andrew Lumisden; signed by Thomas Lumisden Strange in each volume and with a note on Boswell's Life copied by him from Samuel Parr. Presentation copies of the Life are rare in commerce. The last copy at auction, that given to Boswell's executor Sir William Forbes of Pitsligo was inscribed only on a note tipped in before the title (Sotheby's, 13 December 2016, lot 45). Prior to that, the only other presentation copy sold at auction was that given to John Douglas, Bishop of Carlisle, who appears in a short episode in the work (Sotheby's NY, 1998). Pottle notes other presentation copies given to John Wilkes, Warren Hastings, Sir William Scott, and James Boswell the younger.

      s.e, 1791. Cm. 21, pp. (4) 502 (2) + 6 (2) di appendice. Solida leg. ottocentesca in mezza perg. con titoli e filetti impressi al dorso. Esemplare marginoso ed ottimamente conservato. Jacques Necker (1732-1804), celebre economista ginevrino, fu ministro delle Finanze di Luigi XVI e ricoprì numerosi incarichi politici di primissimo piano, non riuscendo però a coniugare le sue grandi qualità di economista ad un dinamico pragmatismo politico. Quest'mportante saggio si pone come fonte di primaria importanza per quanto riguarda la storia amministrativa ed economica della Francia pre-rivoluzionaria. Edizione verosimilmente originale, comunque differente dalle altre in formato minore uscite nello stesso anno e contraddistinta dalla presenza delle 6 pagine numerate di appendice e della carta bianca finale spesso mancanti.

        Light Horse Harry Lee Asks Hamilton for a Favor

      Alexandria, Virginia 1791 - Autograph Letter Signed, to Alexander Hamilton, August 12, 1791, Alexandria, Virginia. 1 p. Complete TranscriptMy dear sir I wrote to you this morning. I pray your attention as my friend to that party of my ler which concerns the paper I mean to send to Leroy & Bayard the moment you receive my lr & to favor me with your answer by return of post; On the political subject at your leisure I presume to hear your sentiments. Affy yours HL August 12th 1791. Alexa[Address:] The hone / Alexr Hamilton esqr / Secretary of the / Treasury / Philada[Docketing:] 12 Aug 1791 / Henry Lee[Endorsement by Hamilton:] Henry Lee / AnsweredHistorical BackgroundHerman Le Roy and William Bayard were New York merchants with a branch in Philadelphia. Henry Lee had "a large sum in funded paper," and at the recommendation of Théophile Cazenove, he intended to transfer it to Le Roy and Bayard to "turn into cash." Because Lee did not know Le Roy, he asked Hamilton to intervene personally to complete the transaction soon because "the money being soon wanted & the price allowed by me very high, disappointment in the agency will be injurious & distressing."[1]Lee was at this time a member of the Virginia Assembly but was elected governor later in 1791. Although he objected to some features of Hamilton's economic policies, he remained an enthusiastic Federalist throughout his life.Henry ("Light Horse Harry") Lee (1756-1818) was born in Virginia and graduated from the College of New Jersey (Princeton) in 1773. He began to pursue a legal career, but with the beginning of the Revolutionary War he became a captain in a Virginia dragoon detachment. Promoted to major in 1778, he took command of a mixture of infantry and cavalry, and his horsemanship gave him the nickname "Light Horse Harry." He later served as a lieutenant colonel in the southern theater and was present at Yorktown for the British surrender. Lee was a delegate to the Confederation Congress from 1786 to 1788. From 1789 to 1791, he served in the Virginia General Assembly, then as governor of Virginia from 1791 to 1794. In the latter year, he helped President George Washington suppress the Whiskey Rebellion in western Pennsylvania. Lee represented Virginia in Congress from 1799 to 1801, and famously eulogized Washington as "first in war, first in peace, and first in the hearts of his countrymen."[1] Harold C. Syrett, ed., The Papers of Alexander Hamilton, vol. 9, August 1791 - December 1791 (New York: Columbia University Press, 1965), 31-32.

        A Sketch of the Life and Projects of John Law of Lauriston,comptroller General of the finances in France

      [WOOD,John Philip]. A Sketch of the Life and Projects of John Law of Lauriston,comptroller General of the finances in France. Edinburgh, Peter Hill and George Kearsley 1791Quarto, 29.0 x 23.0 cm, t, pp.(4) + ii + 48, paper wrappers with short tear, original blue paper wrappers, uncut, an excellent copy, preserved in a marbled portfolio with ties.ESTC T8458. Kress B2240. Goldsmith 14941.RARE FIRST EDITION of the earliest published biography in English of the Scottish economist John Law. The dedication is to William Davidson of Muirhead. The son of a prosperous banker John Law [1671-1729] devoted his entire life to making proposals for the establishment of banks, both in Scotland and on the Continent, convinced as he was that the key to economic prosperity lay in augmenting the base of metallic currencies with paper money, particularly paper money backed by land holdings. He was appointed Controller General of Finances in France by the regent Philippe dOrleans in 1716 and the became the architect of the Mississippi Bubble. Law was dismissed from his post in 1720.His principal theories on money and banking, givinga detailed account of his plan to replace specie with paper currency based on land and of his proposals for a state bank were published in his Money and trade considered, published anonymously in Edinburgh in 1705. Law is described by Schumpeter as "in the front rank of monetary theorists of all times". Antoin Murphy writes "Money and trade in particular is a seminal work....In it Law discussed not only the money/inflation issue, but, more significantly, the money/output issue. He was contending that money was linked, not just to the price level, but also to output - or trade, as it was then called. Law wanted to show that an expansion of money supply could increase output and employment in an economy characterised by unemployment and under-utilisation of resources. At the same time, he produced a highly innovative approach to macroeconomic theorizing..."The author of this biography John Wood was to publish in 1794 an account of John Law's ancestral village entitled The Ancient and Modern State of the Parish of Cramond.
