      London: printed for the author, and sold by J. Edwards, 1793 - Quarto (286 × 230 mm). Contemporary marbled calf, raised bands to spine, foliate vignettes gilt to compartments between gilt rules, black morocco label, fillet and oak-leaf borders gilt to sides, sprinkled edges, green endpapers, bound purple silk page-marker. With the directions to the binder bound in. Joints and extremities rubbed, a few light scuffs and scattered faint craquelure to sides, tide-mark to top edge of pp. 92–3, the text unaffected, otherwise a few trivial spots or marks, Pass at Sicri Gully and Zananah plates transposed, very short closed tear to folding map stub. An excellent copy, the contents crisp and fresh and with no trace of the usual offsetting or browning. 14 engraved plates (9 of them views) by Medland, Byrne, Angus and others after Hodges, large folding engraved map of part of Bengal and Bihar. First edition, in a superior Regency binding; a second edition was published the following year. "The first professional landscape artist to visit India and please such tastes [for the picturesque and the sublime] was William Hodges (1744–1797). He went with a highly individual vision and style of painting which had been formed while he was official artist on Captain Cook's second voyage to the Pacific between 1772 and 1775. Hodges had served his apprenticeship with Richard Wilson and had learnt to paint landscapes in the classical tradition, producing calm wooded scenes lit by a soft glow, the foreground peopled with classical figures. With Captain Cook Hodges was suddenly jerked into observing nature in a completely different way "[His] First year in India was disappointing. Hodges's health was poor and the Second Mysore War (1780–84) against Haidar Ali was in progress. This made it impossible for him to explore the countryside of South India freely and he was confined to Madras and its immediate environs. On moving to Calcutta in February 1781, however, he was to travel far more widely through the generosity and patronage of the Governor-General, Warren Hastings, a man of broad culture. "During 1781 Hodges made two tours up-country with him during which he saw the ruins of many Muslim palaces, tombs and mosques. The next year he found a patron in Augustus Cleveland, a liberal administrator stationed at Bhagalpur in Bihar. Touring with him Hodges saw a very different India – the forested tracts inhabited by an aboriginal people, the Paharias. During 1783 he made a long expedition up-country to join Major Brown who was heading a diplomatic embassy to the Mughal Emperor. Hodges was now able to see the great Mughal monuments at Agra and Sikandra. He returned through Central India to Calcutta via Lucknow and left India in November 1783" (Archer & Lightbown, India Observed: India as viewed by British Artists 1760–1860, Victoria and Albert Museum 1982, pp. 8–9).

        The Experienced English Housekeeper, for the use and ease of ladies, housekeepers, cooks, etc. Written purely from practice; dedicated to the Hon. Lady Elizabeth Warburton, whom the author lately served as housekeeper. Consisting of several hundred original receipts, most of which never appeared in print. A new edition. In which are inserted some celebrated receipts by other modern authors.

      London: printed for A. Millar, W. Law, and R. Cater, 1793 - Octavo (219 x 125 mm). Contemporary marbled calf, rebacked, black label, spine gilt to compartments. A few instances of foxing and small worm hole at foot of final couple of signatures, not affecting text. An attractive, internally clean copy. Engraved portrait frontispiece and 3 plates, of which 2 are folding. A later edition of this popular Georgian-era cookery book, first published in Manchester in 1769; there were some twenty further editions before the turn of the 19th century, of which only twelve were authorised. Elizabeth Raffald (1733–1781) was born in Doncaster and spent some fifteen years in the service of Lady Elizabeth Warburton at Arley Hall, Cheshire, before marrying her employer's gardener. "A shrewd, tactful, and strong-willed woman, with a good knowledge of French and an active concern for the poor" (ODNB), she later opened her own shop in Manchester, first in Fennell Street, then on Exchange Alley, from where she ran a cookery school and probably the city's first register office for servants. When Baldwin, the London-based publisher of the first edition, suggested altering certain northern expressions in her work, Raffald is meant to have replied, "What I have written I proposed to write at the time; it was written deliberately, and I cannot admit to any alteration". Loosely inserted in this copy is a contemporary manuscript recipe to make elderberry wine, pleasing evidence of the book being used. Bitting p. 387 for the second edition; Cagle 944-953 for various other editions; ESTC T195825.

        An Historical Journal of the Transactions at Port Jackson and Norfolk Island,

      London: Printed for John Stockdale,, 1793. with the Discoveries which have been made in New South Wales and in the Southern Ocean since the Publication of Philip's Voyage, compiled from the Official Papers; Including the Journals of Governors Phillip and King, and of Lieut. Ball; and the Voyages from the first Sailing of the Sirius in 1787, to the Return of that Ship's Company to England in 1792. Quarto (300 × 240 mm).

Orme, engraved vignette title, 13 engraved plates (one of an aboriginal family, engraved by William Blake), 2 large folding engraved maps. A little occasional foxing, chiefly to the margins of the plates, a little offsetting from the plates. A very good copy. First edition, a tall copy retaining the date at the foot of the title page which is usually found trimmed. John Hunter (1737-1821) was "vice-admiral and governor of New South Wales [1795-1800] in succession to Governor Phillip, went out as second-in-commandon the Sirius in the first convict fleet. He was an experienced and scientific navigator. With his encouragement, the exploration of the coastline of Australia made rapid progress, and the early discoveries of Flinders and Bass owe much to him" (Hill). "Hunter gives an excellent account of many activities, particularly exploration and the settlement at Norfolk Island, which are treated more cursorily by the other First Fleet chroniclers. The engraved plates and maps, many of the latter from original cartography by Hunter, Dayes and Bradley, are very fine. The plates include the well-known 'View of the Settlement at Sydney Cove, Port Jackson, 20th August 1788' (the first published engraving of Sydney) and P. G. King's 'A Family of New South Wales [engraved by Blake]'" (Hordern House, Australiana 1784–1830, p. 67).

        LIFE OF SAMUEL JOHNSON Comprehending an Account of his Studies and Numerous Works, etc

      London: Printed by Henry Baldwin for Charles Dilly, 1793. 3 volumes. First octavo edition, revised and augmented by Boswell, with the corrections, cancels, and misprints. This copy also with the "Additions received after the Second Edition was printed" (pp. *i-*xxii), "A Chronological Catalogue of the Prose Works of Samuel Johnson, LL.D" which is the first attempt at a Johnson bibliography (pp. *xxiii- *xxxi), and thirteen letters to Bennet Langton and one to the Earl of Bute as well as the first issuance of the Dialogue between Dr. Johnson and Mrs. Knowles printed by J. and A. Arch, London, and not called for in the first edition of the octavo issue. Most of this material was issued here for the first time and was not in the first edition quarto. Engraved portrait frontispiece, after the painting by Sir Joshua Reynolds. Also with the folding 'Round Robin' plate and a folding plate of with a facsimile of Dr. Johnson's handwriting. 8vo, very handsomely bound in original period tree calf, the spines gilt tooled in compartments decorated with a central gilt ornamental device and surrounded by gilt borders, divided into six compartments separated by gilt decorated bands, two compartments with contrasting red and black morocco labels gilt lettered and decorated.

IMPORTANT PRINTING IN CONTEMPORARY TREE CALF GILT. The first 8vo edition of what is perhaps the greatest biography ever written in the English language, in a fine contemporary binding. The "chronological catalogue of the prose works of Samuel Johnson" appears in this edition for the first time. This set with the alphabetical table of contents before the text rather than at the end of volume 3, as is often the case and with the scarce leaf of corrections and additions following the contents. Celebrated for its intimacy and vividness, Boswell's Life of Johnson "is one of the best books in the world. It is assuredly a great, very great work. Homer is not more decidedly the first of heroic Poets,--Shakespeare is not more decidedly the first of Dramatists,--Demosthenes is not more decidedly the first of Orators, than Boswell is the first of Biographers..." (Macauley, in the Edinburgh Review, 1831). Boswell learned a great deal about the art of biography from his subject, and brought to his task boundless curiosity, persistence, and zest. Boswell had been collecting material for this work since his first interview with Johnson in 1763, and was confident that his kind of biography, "which gives not only a History of Johnson's visible progress through the world, and of his publications, but a view of his mind in his letters and conversations, is the most perfect that can be conceived, and will be more of a Life than any work that has ever yet appeared.

        Twenty-Four Picturesque Scenes, chiefly in the Highlands of Scotland]

      1793 - Oblong Folio (230 x 290mm)., 24 leaves of hand-coloured engraved plates by Francis Jukes from original drawings by William Ashmore. Contemporary calf backed marbled boards, spine lettered in gilt (a little rubbed at the edges, some slight scuffing to the head of the spine). Perth: R. Morison & Son, Dec^r^, A rare suit of plates - ?the most ambitious undertaking in terms of topographical prints marketed by a provincial press? - intended to accompany Robert Heron's Observations made in a Journey through the western counties in Scotland (Perth, 1793). Scotch Views by William Ashmore, a drawing master at the Perth Academy, was a subscription venture published in 1793. It comprised not only the most ambitious undertaking in terms of topographical prints marketed by a provincial press, but it also related clearly to the market for print collec- tors to which the Morisons? quarto edition of The Seasons had appealed. The aquatint engravings by Francis Jukes were executed in oval format, the format Gilpin had used for his ?Views,? and ? nished in a style of uncommon elegance, either for the Cabinet, the Optical Pillar, or Fur- niture.? The prints were suitable for collectors? cabinets and portfolios but could also be used for display and projection via an optical device that became increasingly fashionable among print collectors.

        A Treatise on the Dieases of Children, With General Directions for the Management of Infants from the Birth 2vols in 1. POLIO

      T Dobson, Phildelphia 1793 - Bound in contemporary full leather, spine gilt in compartments with red label. Worn to edges. Boards detached. One of the earliest and important Pediatric publications. xx, 404pp, v. Very slightly browned to text. Underwood was born in Surrey, England. He studied surgery and midwifery, a discipline that included pediatrics as well as obstetrics, in London and Paris. He was highly regarded as a man-midwife and attended prominent women of the day, including the daughter-in-law of King George III. Underwood oversaw a total of seven editions of his Treatise in his long lifetime, with each successive version written more for the medical profession than for the lay person. One of the best eighteenth-century English works on pediatrics, it remained a standard text for over 60 years. In addition to a discussion of various diseases, Underwood includes an extensive section on the general care of infants. His baby formula, consisting of boiled cow’s milk and barley water, is the era’s closest imitation of mother’s milk. Underwood makes clear his preference for mother’s milk. The second edition is notable for including the first account of polio in a section entitled - Debility of the Lower Extremities. Size: 8vo [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        De Ecclesiae Wirtembergicae renascentis calamitatibus. Defendent G.W. Hegel, J.C.F. Hölderlin et al. Tübingen: Fues, 1793.

      - Small 4to (195mm x 160mm), [ii], 86 pp., contemporary plain wrappers, internally clean and fresh, an excellent copy of this very rare early Hegel item. First edition of a dissertation by the chancellor of Tübingen university, Johann Friedrich Le Bret, which Hegel, Hölderlin and seven other students had to defend in June 1793 as part of their final exams in theology there. 'In 1788, Hegel left home to study theology at the University of Tübingen, where he befriended Schelling and Hölderlin. The friends shared a common enthusiasm for the French Revolution and the pantheism of Spinoza. Dissatisfied with the state of theology at Tübingen, they forsook pastoral careers. At this point in his life, Hegel showed little interest in the more theoretical aspects of philosophy. When Schelling and Hölderlin joined a reading group to study the works of Kant, for instance, Hegel did not join with them, preferring to read the works of Rousseau. After finishing his degree in 1793, Hegel spent eight frustrating years as a private tutor in Bern and Frankfurt' (Dictionary of Eighteenth-Century German Philosophers). WorldCat locates only eight institutional copies, six in Germany (Munich, Aschaffenberg, Göttingen, Augsburg, Berlin, Heidelberg) and one each in Ballerup and Pamplona. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        De l'impot progressif et du morcellement des patrimoines . relié avec 6 textes d'économie politique de l'époque révolutionnaire.

      Paris, Dupont 1793 - In-8° relié demi-chagrin havane XIX° 103 p., une planche hors-texte dépliante à laquelle sont consacrées 5 pages d'explications "Croisement synthétique de l'impôt proportionnel et l'impot progressif. Adjoint à la commission des poids et mesures de Paris, employé au cadastre, il prend part aux discussions concernant les normes de format de papier : en effet, la création, au début de la Révolution française, d'un impôt sur la propriété foncière rendait nécessaire l'établissement d'un cadastre, projet de grande envergure qui demandait un vaste effort de normalisation. Jollivet expose le 21 août 1792 à l'Assemblée Nationale les raisons qui justifient le recours à un format de papier normalisé. « Il devient membre de la commission extraordinaire des finances près la Convention nationale le 19 ventôse suivant (9 mars 1795), conservateur général des hypothèques le 1er thermidor de la même année (19 juillet 1795), enfin membre de la commission extraordinaire des négociants de la République convoqués par le ministre des Finances le 22 frimaire an V. "Jean-Baptiste Jollivet, ancien député à l'Assemblée législative et futur préfet d'Empire, qui, en l'An III, signe tantôt Baralère tantôt Baraly, est l'un des publicistes les plus actifs et les plus intelligents de Thermidor, un spécialiste de l'adaptation aux fluctuations politiques. De la veine anti-cléricale à l'ardeur anti-girondine, les textes de Jollivet sont caractérisés par la langue de bois populiste qui a résisté aux différents régimes et constitue un élément de continuité du discours révolutionnaire."

Vi Ë dunque una terza facolt? intermedia fra l'intelletto (facolt? conoscitiva teoretica) e la ragione (facolt? pratica): il giudizio, collegato al "sentimento puro"."La Critica del Giudizio" sembra palesare il tentativo di Kant, di poter sanare quelle contraddizioni che emergevano forti dalle precedenti "Critica della ragion pratica" in opposizione con le conclusioni della "Critica della ragion pura". Kant sperimenta per certi versi in quest'opera una nuova terminologia, un opera per certi versi oscura, che si presta a varie interpretazioni. Luk?cs, un importante pensatore del Novecento, ha affermato che tutta l'estetica possibile per l'umanit? Ë contenuta nella "Critica del giudizio", ma si tratter? di dipanarla nei tempi venturi: si dovr? sempre attingere a quest'opera se si vorr? considerare i problemi della bellezza e del finalismo della natura.Ottimo esemplare marginoso, su carta vergellata, in bella impressione.

        Antique Map-FRANCE-BRETAGNE-BRITTANY-Vaugondy-Delamarche-1793

      - Map: 'Carte du Gouvernement de Bretagne .' (Map of the Bretagne / Brittany region, France). Nicely inked map. Scarse. Copperplate engraving and etching on a verge type hand laid paper. Description: This map originates from an unrecorded composite Atlas compiled around 1795 (based on youngest dated map) which contained many maps originally published in the famous 'Atlas Universel.', by de Vaugondy, first published in 1757. To produce the atlas, the Vaugondys integrated older sources with more modern surveyed maps. They verified and corrected the latitude and longitude of many regional maps in the atlas with astronomical observations. The older material was revised with the addition of many new place names. In the late 18th c. the plates of these maps were acquired by Delamarche. This map has reference to Le Sr. Robert de Vaugondy and Delamarche in it's cartouche. This map was originally published in 1768.Artists and Engravers: Gilles Robert de Vaugondy (1688�1766), also known as Le Sieur or Monsieur Robert, and his son, Didier Robert de Vaugondy (c.1723�1786), were leading cartographers in France during the 18th century. Charles Francois Delamarche (1740-1817) founded the important and prolific Paris based Maison Delamarche map publishing firm in the late 18th century. A lawyer by trade Delamarche entered the map business with the acquisition from Jean-Baptiste Fortin of Robert de Vaugondy's map plates and copyrights and later addes many plates from other sources as well. Charles Delamarche eventually passed control of the firm to his son Felix Delamarche (18th C. - 1st half 19th C.) and geographer Charles Dien (1809-1870). It was later passed on to Alexandre Delamarche, who revised and reissued several Delamarche publications in the mid-19th century. The firm continued to publish maps and globes until the middle part of the 19th century. Condition: General age related toning and light staining. Irregular paper edges, chipped with small tears.
