      en la imprenta de D. Fermin Taddeo Villalpando ., [Madrid] 1798 - Folio, 248 pages (i.e. fols. [2] 122), + large fold-out family tree (c.65 x c.99 cms), for which see description below. Mends and discolouration to fold-out at hinge, light browning, slight dustiness, a good copy in contemporary mottled wrappers, slightly rumpled and torn; note on front cover "58" (crossed out), "No. 101", and "Del Mayorazgo de los Gallos". Unlocated submission in a law suit involving succession to five mayorazgos (estates, entailed to prevent fragmentation) dating from between 1506 and 1599, following the death of their last possessor, Doña Maria Francisca Gallo, Marquesa de Fuentepelayo, in 1784. The large illustrative family tree has 137 names in boxes, and more are added to the diagram in manuscript. Some of the lines between the boxes are added in ink, and if one looks closely one sees that the diagram has been worked over in pencil, with a line drawn alongside a couple of names. The diagram was key evidence or narrative in a (clearly) very complicated family dispute, and shows graphically quite how entangled an inheritance issue can become, if extended for 200 to 300 years! Not in CCPB. Not in OCLC. (01/18). [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        TO THE VOTERS OF THE CITY AND COUNTY OF BALTIMORE. GENTLEMEN.

      Printed by Yundt and Brown, No. 12, South Gay-Street, Baltimore 1798 - Broadside. 7-7/8" x 20". Printed in three columns. Lightly toned. Light foxing. Very Good. Matted. When this broadside was published Smith was a U.S. Congressman from Maryland. A resident of Baltimore, he had served with distinction in the Revolution and had commanded Maryland's troops during the Whisky Rebellion. Afterwards, as a Jeffersonian he was elected United States Senator from Maryland for two terms and was later returned as a Congressman. Despite his unimpeachable record Smith ran into trouble with his Maryland rivals, recorded in this broadside. According to various sources, Smith "told the president at his own table" that our envoys should pay the bribe demanded by Talleyrand and his French companions. "The president answered, that he would not give the value of the duty on a pound of tea! for the PRINCIPLE was everything with us. The president instantly, with additional emphasis, observed to him, Sir, if that be your serious opinion, you cannot be an American, a republican or a virtuous man." Smith claims-- rather weakly, unfortunately-- that he was just joking. Bristol B10554. Shipton & Mooney 48643. ESTC W5666 [1- NYPL].

        Les mystères d'Udolphe

      Maradan 1798 - A Paris chez Maradan, 1798. Six tomes en six volumes. Reliures d’époque. Faux titre, titre, 215 pp., 217 pp, 207 pp,199 pp, 192 pp, 210 pp. Six frontispices. Première édition illustrée (in-16). Les Mystères d’Udolphe (1794) est le premier des deux chefs d’oeuvres d’Anne Radcliffe, et son quatrième roman. Il reçut des critiques extrêmement élogieuses, malgré quelques réserves sur ses longueurs, son auteur étant même désignée comme égale de Shakespeare dans le domaine de l’horreur par la Critical Review . Voir M. Lévy (Le roman “gothique” anglais 1764-1824), qui écrit aussi au sujet du “fantastique expliqué” de Radcliffe, qui lui a souvent été reproché: Le fantastique radcliffien a moins pour source l’intrusion, réelle ou supposée, de l’insolite dans le quotidien, que le climat d’angoissant mystère qui pèse sur les personnages et leurs gestes, et que ne détruisent pas les peu convaincantes “explications” finales.les commentaires sur les spectres sont bien plus importants que leur apparition effective. M. Lévy écrivait aussi à propos de l’oeuvre de cet écrivain: "la société anglaise par la voix de ses représentants les plus autorisés ( ) non seulement goûta, mais prit au sérieux, les productions d’une romancière qu’il est trop facile, aujourd’hui, de caricaturer (.) Le “roman gothique’ ne sera plus le même après le rapide passage de cette jeune femme sur la scène littéraire. La longue cohorte de ses imitateurs.ne sut capter qu’un pâle reflet de ce qui fait le charme profond de ses romans. En s’arrêtant aux procédés, ils s’aveuglaient sur la vraie nature de son art. Le meilleur moyen de trancher est de lire Anne Radcliffe." Menus défauts aux reliures, l’intérieur de chaque tome est bien conservé. Une mouillure en haut des pages des tomes 2 à 6 ainsi qu’en bas de pages des tomes 3 et 4. Mais l’exemplaire est tout à fait satisfaisant et agréable (et il a le mérite d’être relié en six volumes séparés). hauteur des feuillets: 12,7 cm. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        A new dictionary of the spanish and english languages in four volumes..

      Madrid: Printed in the King's Press by Pedro Julian Pereyra, Printer to His Cath. Maj., 1798. Two of four volumes only, i.e. Spanish-English A-Z. [16], 956, 1097, [3]; [6], 1097pp, [3]. Terminal two leaves of Vol. II duplicated at the end of Vol. I. Parallel English and Spanish title-pages. Contemporary speckled sheep, contrasting red and black morocco lettering-pieces, gilt. Extremities worn, surface loss to boards. Marbled endpapers, book-labels and armorial bookplates of Viscount Exmouth to both FEPs, ink ownership inscriptions of Ed. Pellew to verso of both English title-pages, short closed tear to text of leaf Gg2, Vol. I - without loss of sense, very slight marginal loss to leaves Q1, T7, Vol. II, occasional browning. The first two volumes only of this authoritative Spanish and English dictionary published in Madrid by the printer to Charles IV - and as such the first Spanish and English bilingual dictionary to be printed and published in Spain. The compilers, Irish Dominican friar Thomas Connelly and Carmelite friar Thomas Higgins, achieved their Herculean effort through combining Johnson's Dictionary with Diccionario de Autoridades of the Spanish Academy. It is tempting to imagine that Pellew made use of this copy during his many years of conflict against the forces of Spain. Edward Pellew (1757-1833), celebrated British naval officer who saw service during the American Wars of Independence, French Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars. As the Captain of the HMS Nymphe, Pellew was responsible for the capture of the first French frigate of the American Revolutionary War at the action of 18th June 1793, and with it the signal codes of the enemy fleet. As the instigator of one of the most celebrated and significant victories of the British Navy during the late eighteenth-century, Pellew was knighted by King George III. By the following year he risen to the rank of Commodore of the Western Frigate Section, and taken command of the ship in which he was to secure numerous prizes and later be immortalised in fiction by C.S. Forester in the Hornblower novels; HMS Indefatigable. Promoted Rear-Admiral in 1804, he took command of the East Indies Section, and of the Mediterranean Fleet during 1811-14/1815-16. His final notable action was in 1816, when his successful bombardment of Algiers secured the freedom of 1,200 Christian slaves imprisoned by the Berbers, marked on 10th December by his creation as 1st Viscount Exmouth. .

        Autograph manuscript poem [Nika de kai sideron], with a fragment of [Jack Rostbeef's Return].

      [Probably Leipzig, likely early 1797; no later than spring 1798]. - 4 pp. on 2 folio leaves (ca. 190 x 353 mm), irregularly cut from a volume. Watermark "Jeziorna" (i.e., they Royal Polish papermill Jeziorna near Warsaw). Entirely unknown manuscript of the poem beginning "Soll auch ich den Zauberkelch noch trinken", a fair draft with numerous autograph revisions and corrections. This early version saw at least one more revision, but is complete save for the title "Nika de kai sideron", which probably was not added until the very end. The present manuscript reveals several preliminary stages of the text not carried over into print: in particular, Seume had originally planned to reveal the addressee of this poem of unhappy love in the central stanza: "Aber wenn ich einst mich, Willhelmine, / Deinetwegen meinem Loos versühne"; ultimately, he chose to disclose her name only in the final verse. The lady in question is the daughter of the Leipzig merchant Christian Friedrich Röder, Wilhelmina (1777-1813), with whom the poet was in love since 1795. "After Seume had been forced by her father to break off the relationship at the turn of the year 1796/97, she married the silk merchant George Henri Favreau in 1798" (cf. Drews/Sangmeister [ed.], Seume Briefe [2002], p. 1195). The published title is taken from the end of the Second Ode of Anacreon, "To Women" ("Nikâ dè kaì síderon, kaì pyr, kalé tis oûsa" - "Even steel is overcome [by beauty, as is fire]"): thus, the former soldier Seume twists the Anacreontic praise of womanhood into a bitter allusion to his own vanquishment by the beautiful woman he adores without hope. Seume, a trained classicist, would take a copy of Anacreon along on his famous nine months' walk to Sicily in 1802. - The recto of the first leaf contains the final eight and a half verses of Seume's poem "Jack Rostbeef's Return" (here beginning with: "God bless the blockheads on their way"), showing a similar abundance of revisons. One of the author's few works in English, the poem conveys the perspective of a well-travelled man who has found mankind equally evil and foolish in all quarters of the world and, upon his return, prefers his flawed but familar native country to them all - a notion to which Seume himself may not have been a stranger. - Both poems were published in 1798 the second volume of Seume's "Obolen", but in the reverse order, many pages apart. The present joint manuscript on paper likely bought in Poland before 1795 suggests that both poems were written quite soon after Seume's separation from Wilhelmina Röder in early 1797. - Two pages show slight loss to individual letters, caused by the leaves having being cut from the gutter of a bound volume. Somewhat wrinkled and browned. Of the utmost rarity. First published: Obolen II (1798), pp. 30-35. With revisions: Prosaische und poetische Werke von J. G. Seume, 5. Theil: Gedichte (1879), pp. 101-104. Sangmeister, Annotiertes Verzeichnis von Seumes Gedichten, no. 178. - "Jack Rostbeef's Return": first published in Obolen II, pp. 112-116. Sangmeister, no. 147.

The two works (&#145;Republic of France&#146; and &#145;Philosophy of the Revolution&#146;) are two of Desodoards most important works. According to Boursin, Desodoards was the oldest historian of the French Revolution and further states that anyone seeking ideas of the political events leading to the Revolution, Desodoards must be consulted. Desodoards discusses the relationship between nobles, aristocracy, their ignorance, and the oppression felt by the general public. This Desodoards claims, was one of the most significant factors that lead to the battles in the streets of Paris.

        Relation de l'entrée du Roi et de la reine de Sardaigne à Thonon en 1824.

      - 23 lettres autographes signées 65 In-4 1798-1828 Adresses et marques postales au dos. bon Très intéressante correspondance d'un notable de Thonon, André Charles, à son fils, qui forme une véritable chronique, comprenant de nombreux détails sur les événements historiques de l'Empire et de la Restauration à Thonon et dans le Chablais. Citons le début de la longue lettre du 18 août 1824. "Le 11 du courant, leurs majestés le Roi et la Reine de Sardaigne et la Duchesse de Chablais sont arrivés à Thonon entre 8 et 9 h du soir. 40 volontaires, sous l'uniforme brillant de lanciers polonais et bien montés, étaient allé à leur rencontre. Un arc de triomphe avait été dressé à l'entrée de la ville où elles ont été reçues et complimentées par les syndic et conseil, entourés de plusieurs groupes de jeunes dames et demoiselles en robe blanche et ceinture bleue, qui leur ont présenté des fleurs et chanté des couplets analogues à la circonstance. Une nombreuse garde urbaine formait la haie, le carillon des cloches, l'artillerie qu'on s'était procuré et 40 musiciens joints aux acclamations répétées de Vive le Roi, Vive la Reine, Vive la Duchesse de Chablais, par une population composée des syndics et des principaux habitants de la province et accrue par des Genevois, Vaudois et Valaisiens en grand nombre, donnaient à notre petite ville un ton très intéressant. Toutes les maisons décorées de nombre de drapeaux aux couleurs de Savoie, de guirlandes, de verdures et de fleurs autour des croisées, des guirlandes transversales auxquelles étaient suspendues des couronnes de divers genres, et principalement la Royale, toutes élégamment montées, des transparents ingénieux et nombre de devises exprimaient la joie publique ; l'illumination était générale, la fenêtre la plus étroite n'avait pas moins de 8 lampions, et quelques maisons en avaient plus de 600. Un concert et un brillant feu d'artifice ont fini la soirée. Le lendemain 12, les Augustes voyageurs en allant dîner à Evian escortés par les lanciers, se sont arrêtés à la fontaine d'Amphior où la Duchesse avait été boire les eaux pendant 3 ou 4 ans avant la Révolution [.]. De retour à Thonon, sur les 4 heures, leur M. et Al. ont vu des croisées de leur Palais dominant sur le lac, un simulacre de combat naval exécuté par 3 divers pavillons turcs et sardes, avec une nombreuse artillerie, les Turcs ayant été démâtés et une barque demi-incendiée se sont rendus prisonniers [.]. Le lendemain 13 au matin, il y a eu audience et salon [.]". Sont jointes 3 autres lettres. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Catalogue of Stars, taken from Mr. Flamsteed's Observations contained in the Second Volume of the Historia Coelestis, and not inserted in the British Catalogue. With an Index, to point out Every Observation in that Volume belonging to the Stars of the British Catalogue. To which is added, a Collection of Errata that should be noticed in the Same Volume?with Introductory and Explanatory Remarks to Each of Them. By William Herschel?published by Order, and at the Expence, of the Royal Society

      - One engraved plate. 136 pp., one leaf of errata. Folio, cont. grey boards (carefully rebacked & recornered by Trevor Lloyd), spine gilt. London: P. Elmsly, 1798. First edition of this important star catalogue which served as a supplement to Flamsteed's Historiae Coelestis Britannicae (1725) and thus remained an essential tool for astronomers for many years. This is a fine copy from the Royal Society of Edinburgh with their discrete stamp and equally discrete ownership inscription on title. Caroline Herschel (1750-1848), the younger sister of William, was his essential assistant in astronomical work for half a century. Independently, she became a major astronomer, discovering three new nebulae and no fewer than eight comets. "Caroline was an indispensable member of a most remarkable team that, in one of the greatest campaigns known to observational astronomy, swept the whole of the visible sky. In twenty years of unremitting toil, brother and sister increased the number of known nebulae from about a hundred to 2500."-ODNB. "In 1782 William gave up music for astronomy and moved to the neighborhood of Windsor Castle; Caroline accompanied him, thereby ending her musical career. William now encouraged Caroline to 'sweep' for comets on her own account; and in 1783, while doing this she found three new nebulae, including the companion to the Andromeda nebula. But soon William was himself committed to sweeping for nebulae, and at night Caroline was often required to be on hand to write down his observations. In the daytime, besides managing the household and entertaining visitors, she carried out the extensive routine calculations, prepared catalogs and papers for publication, and even ground and polished mirrors?Between 1786 and 1797 she discovered no fewer than eight comets, thus earning a reputation as an astronomer in her own right; and in 1798 her revision of Flamsteed's catalog of stars was published by the Royal Society."-D.S.B., VI, pp. 322-23. "The standard catalogue of stars was the British Catalogue of John Flamsteed, published in 1725. William had found his work increasingly hampered by errors in the catalogue, and in 1796 he persuaded Caroline to assemble a list of these errors, a task that took her twenty months. Her list, with an index to Flamsteed's observations, was published by the Royal Society in 1798."-ODNB. Fine copy and quite scarce on the market. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        CONGRESSIONAL PUGILISTS [caption title]

      Philadelphia, 1798. Etching, 8 1/4 x 10 inches. Margins slightly trimmed, some spotting, two short closed marginal tears, contemporary ink chronology of the events leading to the fight. Overall very good. Mounted and framed. A famous cartoon depicting one of the most violent political episodes in the early history of the United States - the fight between Congressmen Matthew Lyon and Roger Griswold on the floor of the House of Representatives. The episode points out the roiling enmity between Jeffersonian Republicans and Federalists in the era of the Alien and Sedition Acts. The immediate cause of the brawl was a personal insult. Shortly after taking a vote on the impeachment of Senator William Blount, Matthew Lyon, a Republican Representative from Vermont, called into question the honor of Connecticut Federalists. Roger Griswold, a Connecticut Federalist, replied by recalling an incident in which Lyon had supposedly been forced to wear a wooden sword as a mark of cowardice while in the Continental Army. Lyon's response was to spit in Griswold's face, after which the Connecticut Federalist left the House chamber. Two weeks later, on Feb. 15, 1798, Griswold attacked Lyon with a hickory walking stick, at which point Lyon grabbed a pair of tongs from the fireplace in Congress Hall and defended himself. It is this scene that is depicted in the print, with Griswold swinging his walking stick and kicking at Lyon, and Lyon swinging back with the tongs while a throng in the chamber looks on excitedly. Three of the onlookers, House Speaker Jonathan Dayton and the Clerk and Chaplain of the House, are all identified by name in the edge of the print. Fowble notes that two different cartoons of the brawl between Lyon and Griswold were produced, the other entitled CUDGELING AS BY LATE ACT IN CONGRESS. The anonymous artist who created CONGRESSIONAL PUGILISTS so exaggerated the features of the onlookers that they needed to be identified at the edge of the image. Reilly, in his catalogue of American political prints in the Library of Congress, describes three different states of CONGRESSIONAL PUGILISTS. This copy conforms to the third state, with the address "S.E. Cor. 6th & Chesnut St." in the lower right corner and with the number "17" in the upper right. Of additional interest are the contemporary ink notations at bottom, being a timeline and related notes regarding Lyon and Griswold. The notes begin, "Jan. 1798 Matthew Lyon spat in Roger Griswold's face Feb. 15 Griswold assaults Lyon as above...." A great American political cartoon of the Federalist Era, showing the deep enmity involved in the nation's politics, even at an early date. WEITENKAMPF, p.12. FOWBLE 329. MURRELL, pp.43, 45. REILLY 1798-1. SNYDER, pp.212-13. EVANS 33491. REESE, FEDERAL HUNDRED 70.

        Le consul Ennio Quirino Visconti, objet d'une terrible cabale sous la République romaine.

      - 2 lettre autographe signée et manuscrit autographe 14 in-folio et in-4 22/09/1798 Datée du 1er vendémiaire an VII. Cachet et marque postaux sur l&#146;enveloppe. bon Dans cette lettre exceptionnelle tant par sa longueur (10 pp. in-folio) que pour son caractère historique, le consul Ennio Quirino Visconti, objet d'une terrible cabale sous la République romaine, se défend auprès du Citoyen Florens, commissaire du Directoire exécutif de la République française à Rome. Attaqué sur son honnêteté &#150; attaque menée en sous-main par Jean Bassal soupçonné de détourner l'argent public à Naples -, suspecté à tort de s'être fort enrichi grâce à l'immobilier, lâché par ses homologues du gouvernement, Visconti écrit aux Pères de la République romaine : Daunou, Monge et. Florens. Dans cette longue lettre, il revient sur les détails de l'affaire et dénonce l'intrigue menée par Bassal « qui voulait se débarrasser d'un obstacle à ses malversations, à ses vénalités, à ses corruptions de toute espèce [.] tout cela vous est bien connu. » Il mentionne également des personnalités importantes de Rome : les consuls Angelucci, Matthadis, Reppi et Parnazzi, Corona membre du Tribunat, ainsi que Pierelli, Rey et Callisti. On reprochait ainsi à Visconti de s'être enrichi grâce à l'immobilier ; lui évoque des achats « patriotiques », c'est-à-dire d'anciens immeubles de congrégations religieuses. Afin d'étayer son argumentation, il joint une note autographe (4 pp. in-4), intitulée État des acquisitions faites par Visconti depuis le 22 pluviôse an 6e jour de la révolution de Rome après la quelle époque il a été ministre de l'Intérieur provisoire et consul durant six mois : « Il a été si éloigné de cacher ces acquisitions qu'il en a fait déclarer tout de suite le véritable acquéreur par des actes publics. » On joint : deux numéros du Monitore di Roma (n° 60 et 62), attaquant Visconti et joints par ce dernier à sa lettre, ainsi que l'enveloppe autographe adressée au Citoyen Florens, ayant contenu l'ensemble de ces documents. Témoignage fondamental. Archéologue, l'un des cinq consuls de la République romaine de 1798. Face à l'avancée de l'Armée napolitaine sur Rome en 1799, il dut s'exiler en France et devint le premier conservateur des antiques et tableaux du Musée du Louvre. Il est membre de l'Académie des Beaux-Arts et des Inscriptions et des Belles-Lettres. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

Each volume formed distinct dictionaries made up of various subjects and were entrusted to different e ditiors.
