3 Annual Register BURKE, Edmund Annual Register or a View of the History, Politicks Politics and Literaturefor the Years : 1758 to 1808
Dodsley and others, London, 1758, 
Annual Register . Annual Register or a View of the History, Politicks / Politics and Literature for the Year. London
The Annual Register (originally subtitled "A View of the History, Politicks and Literature of the Year ... ") is a long-established reference work, written and published each year, which records and analyses the year’s major events, developments and trends throughout the world.
It was first written in 1758 under the editorship of Edmund Burke. This collection contains much on the wars and revolutions of the eighteenth century, as well as chronicling development in most spheres of endeavour.
"The Annual Register was created in 1758 by the publishers James and Robert Dodsley. On 24 April 1758 the Dodsley brothers signed a contract with Edmund Burke (1729–97) to write and edit the material for The Annual Register, which was conceived as an annual publication which would review the history, politics and literature of the day.
Born in Ireland, Burke had trained as a lawyer before abandoning this field and turning to writing. He was an up-and-coming member of the intelligentsia and had already written several notable works, published by Dodsley. According to his contract with Dodsley, Burke was paid £100 per annum as editor of The Annual Register. In its original form, The Annual Register comprised a long historical essay on the “History of the Present War” (the Seven Years' War 1756–63), a Chronology, which gave an account of interesting and noteworthy events in Britain over the previous year, and a collection of “State Papers”, a miscellany of primary source material which included official documents, speeches,letters and accounts. In his preface to the 1758 volume Burke noted the difficulties he had faced in writing the history section of the book. Taking the “broken and unconnected materials” and creating from them “one connected narrative” had been, he commented, “a work of more labour than may at first appear”. Nevertheless, his perseverance and skill as an historian meant that by the time of its publication the first volume of The Annual Register contained a unique, contemporaneous account of the war, analysing its origins and development with a perspective not readily available at the time in newspapers or magazines. As a result the book sold widely, with the first volume going through five editions in its first 10 years. Given the conventions of the day, within which journalism was seen as a disreputable profession for a gentleman, Burke was publicly reticent about his connection with The Annual Register. However, his biographers are in agreement that Burke wrote and edited the book single-handedly until 1765 when he entered Parliament. From this time Thomas English was closely involved in writing the book and is regarded by some authorities as having taken over the editorship from Burke in that year. Scholars are divided on the question of Burke’s association with the book thereafter, although many suggest that he continued to contribute to the history section and that he played a significant role in overseeing The Annual Register’s compilation until the 1790s, even though much of the editorial work by this stage was being done by others."

See William B. Todd's A Bibliography of Edmund Burke, (2nd ed., 1982) pp.45-68, for Burke’s involvement with the Annual Register.

Dirrag, et de mademoiselle Eradice. Nouvelle Édition, ornée de vingt Figures. A Londres: n.pub., MDCCLXXXV [1785]. Pp. (6),[5]-131,(5), frontispiece, + 5 leaves of plates. Illustrated. Small 8vo, rebound in full brown calf with marbled Michallet endpapers, yellow and blue headbands, three gilt tooled borders to boards, giltdecoration, gilt lettering, and five raised bands to spine, top edge gilt, two gilt-tooled band dentelles, elaborate gilt decoration inside boards. I ncluding the frontispiece, the other five plates present are opposite pages14, 38, 48, 68, and 91. Originally published in 1748, and attributed to Je an-Baptiste de Boyer (b. June 24, 1704, d. January 11, 1771), "Thérèse, Philosophe" is an erotic novel about a young bourgeois woman's sexual awakening after entering a convent. In this first volume, Thérèse voyeuristically witnesses inappropriate sexual liaisons between her fellow student, Eradice,and one Father Dirrag (whom Thérèse is also under the tutelege of). It was modelled after the 1730 trial of student Catherine Cadiere [anagram: Eradi ce], who was sentenced to death in 1731 (but was given an acquittal), who was involved in a similar illicit relationship with a Jesuit priest, Jean-Baptiste Girard [anagram: Dirrag].

Sermon on the Dangers and Duties of the Seafaring Life; Preached Before the Protestant Dissenting Congregation at Halifax, BROWN, Andrew, Dr.
8 BROWN, Andrew, Dr. Sermon on the Dangers and Duties of the Seafaring Life; Preached Before the Protestant Dissenting Congregation at Halifax
at the Apollo Press by Belknap and Hall, Boston, 1793, 
BROWN, Andrew, (Dr.). A Sermon, on the Dangers and Duties of the Seafaring Life; Preached Before the Protestant Dissenting Congregation at Halifax ; and published at the desire of the Marine Society in That Place . Boston: Printed at the Apollo Press, in Boston, by Belknap and Hall, Dock Square, andfor sale at the Boston Bookstore, no. 59, Cornhill, 1793. Pp. [1]-43,(1), including covers. 8vo, printed brown self wraps. Not in TPL. For Belknap & Hall, see Franklin, Boston Printers, Publishers, and Booksellers: 1640-1800, pp.24-28. For Brown (1763-1834) see DCB: VI: 87-89.. "Son of a weaver, Andrew Brown grew up with the Industrial Revolution and the Scottish Enlightenment. A precocious child, he matriculated at the University of Glasgow in 1776, at the age of 13, and from then until he was licensed to preach by the Presbytery of Biggar in 1786 he studied at both Glasgow and the University of Edinburgh. In 1787, before he had received his divinity degree, he decided to leave Scotland to take up an appointment as minister of St Matthew’s Church in Halifax. [...] Described by Bishop Charles Inglis as 'an ingenious young man from Scotland with amiable manners,' he was a brilliant preacher and a leading figure in intellectual and social circles." - from the DCB. A sermon preached by Dr. Brown, before the Protestant Dissenting Congregation in Halifax, Nova Scotia (the oldest such congregation in Canada), prepared while he was at sea, and largely inspired by Psalm 107, verse 23-33, which deals with seamen witnessing God's creation of the natural "wonders of the deep". "For he commandeth and raiseth the stormy wind, which lifteth up the waves thereof... He maketh the storm a calm, so that the waves thereof are still." "In a seaport town, where many have concerns on the ocean, and are employed in ships, it will not surely be reckoned too great an encroachment on the rights of general instruction, to bestow a particular discourse on the seafaring life; especially when we consider that none of the works of God are indifferent to any of his people, and that the practical instructions deducible from the present subject, will, in a great measure, be equally applicable to all." - from p. 8. The half-title (which also serves as the front cover) reads "Dr. Brown's Sermon, on the Dangers and Duties of the Seafaring Life". This sermon was also printed by John Howe in Halifax in the same year. Spine chipped, nicking to edges of covers, chip to bottom right-hand corner of pp. 15-16 (not affecting text), marginal foxing throughout (though more prevalent to the initial and final leaves), smudging to front cover and brown discolouration to rear cover, name and number inked tofront, else very good. 750.00

A Journal of Transactions and Events during a Residenceof nearly Sixteen Years on the Coast of Labrador; containing many interesting particulars, both of the Country and its Inhabitants, not hitherto known. In Three Volumes. Newark: Printed and sold by Allin and Ridge, 1792. Folio (13 7/8" x 11 1/4"), 19th c. 1/2 calf, marbled boards. Volume I (comprising the First and Second Voyages): Pp. [2 p.l.], [iii] - viii (preface), [ix] - xvi (glossary), [l leaf] "Explanation of the Frontispiece", [6] (subscriber list), [1] - 272, 265 - 287 [i.e. signatures "M m" and "N n" are bothpaginated 265 - 272], frontis. portrait (supplied in facsimile), three fol ding maps (one supplied in facsimile); Volume II (comprising the Third and Fourth Voyages): pp. [i] - x (title page + glossary), [1] - 505; Volume III(comprising the Fifth and Sixth Voyages): pp. [i] - x (title page + glossa ry), [1] - 248, [1] - 15, ("Labrador: A Poetical Epistle"), tables ("A Diary of Farenheit's Thermometer"). This set has at beginning of Vol. I the Lane 1792 "Chart of Part of the Coast of Labrador" [the larger two-sheet version, 26 3/16" x 36 13/16" (66.5 x 93.5 cm.) overall] and the Lane 1790 "The Island of Newfoundland". One of 15 Large Paper Copies. O'Dea 245a, Cooke & Caron p.82, TPL 586, Davidson 139, Sabin 11150. "[...] it is clear from thelist of subscribers' names prefixed to volume one, that the size of the ed ition had been reduced from a thousand to 350 copies, [...]. Of the total number of copies printed, fifteen were run off as special large-paper copiesfavoured by bibliophiles, and these are now exceedingly rare and valuable items." - George Story's "Old Labrador: George Cartwright 1738-1819: A Lecture delivered to The Newfoundland Historical Society, Thursday, 9 October 1980". "This journal is written with care and fidelity; the style of the author is plain and manly; he delivers his sentiments with freedom, and with confidence, asserts only those circumstances which, from his own observations, he knows to be facts. [...] Coleridge highly recommended the work." - quoted in Maggs' Catalogue 678, in loc. "The annals of his campaigns among the foxes and beavers, interested me more than ever did the exploits of Marleborough [sic] or Frederick; besides I saw plain truth and the heart of Cartwright's book." - Coleridge, cited in Lande, (although it appears rather tohave been Robert Southey, according to G.M.Story, in his DCB article). It would be interesting to know how such a book came to be printed in Newark, a small borough town in Nottinghamshire. Despite Cartwright's connection with the town, one would have expected a London imprint for such a large project. John Feather's The English Provincial Book Trade before 1850, (Oxford,1981) has provided two possible sources: Thomas M. Blagg's Newark as a Pub lishing Town, (Newark, 1898) and John Walton's A Survey of the Printing Trade and Related Occupations in Nottingham and Nottinghamshire to 1900, (Library Association Fellowship thesis, 1968). So far the only notice we have found for the printer is the following: "1795, Jan. 4 Died, William Allen [sic], an eminent bookseller at Newark, in Nottinghamshire, aged sixty-two years" in C.H.Timperley's Encyclopaedia of Literary and Typographical Anecdote, (L., 1842), p.785. Vol. I: Lacks the original portrait frontispiece, as well as the map of "Northern and Middle States...and the British Dominions",but full-sized photocopies of these two on good paper have been obtained a nd laid-in. Both of the maps in Vol. I have a single four inch mended tear.Spine cracked at pp. 120/121, 3" tear to margin of pp. 7 - 8, 1" tear to m argin of pp. 21 - 22; pp. 121 - 128 and 205 - 217 are considerable foxed, extreme edges of last leaf showing some adherence of marbling from earlier binding, edges (especially where untrimmed) are darkened, otherwise very clean. Vol. II: Fore-edge of title page spotted (and extreme edges showing some adhering of marbling from earlier binding), two leaves loose (pp. 43 - 46), occasional light foxing (and small stained area affecting text of p. 173), edges (especially where untrimmed) are darkened, otherwise very clean throughout.

17 D'ANVERS, Caleb AMHURST, Nicholas Craftsman. Volume 1
Printed for R. Francklin,, in Russel-Street, Covent-Garden , London , 1731, 
D'ANVERS, Caleb [pseudonym of Nicholas Amhurst]. The Craftsman [Vol. I]. London : Printed for R. Francklin,, in Russel-Street, Covent-Garden M,DCC,XXXI [1731]. Pp (2),[i]-xxvi,[27]-279,(19), frontis. Index. 12mo, full brown calf, single-rule gilt border to both boards, gilt “I” to ribbed spine. The Craftsman was a political paper critical of Sir Robert Walpole's government. This volume contains the first 44 numbers, from Monday, December 5, 1726,to Monday, May 8, 1727. “Nicholas Amhurst (1697-1742) was an English poet and political writer. Amhurst was born at Marden, Kent. He was educated at the Merchant Taylors' School, and at St John's College, Oxford. In 1719 he was expelled from the university, ostensibly for his irregularities of conduct, but in reality (according to his own account) because of his whig principles. [...] On leaving Oxford for London he became a prominent pamphleteer on the opposition (whig) side. On the 5 December 1726 he issued the firstnumber of The Craftsman, a weekly periodical, which he conducted under the pseudonym of Caleb D'Anvers. The paper was aimed mainly towards the overth row of Sir Robert Walpole's government; there is some debate about its effects, with most historians agreeing it was doing little more than preaching to the converted. Nevertheless it reached a circulation of 10,000 copies and was one of the biggest magazines of its time with authors such as Henry Fielding, John Gay and Alexander Pope contributing to it. For this success Amhurst's editorship was not perhaps chiefly responsible. It was founded, and in the beginning financed, by Henry St John, 1st Viscount Bolingbroke andWilliam Pulteney, the latter of whom was a frequent and caustic contributo r. In 1737 an imaginary letter from Colley Cibber was inserted, in which hewas made to suggest that many plays by Shakespeare and the older dramatist s contained passages which might be regarded as seditious. He therefore desired to be appointed censor of all plays brought on the stage. This was regarded as a "suspected" libel, and a warrant was issued for the arrest of the printer. Amhurst surrendered himself instead, and suffered a short imprisonment. On the overthrow of the government in 1742 the opposition leaders did nothing for the useful editor of the Craftsman, and this neglect is saidto have hastened Amhurst's death, which took place at Twickenham.” - from wikipedia. With the bookplate of Jacob Miller Owens, Judge of Probate, Annapolis County, N.S., in 1895. Covers very worn, outer hinges cracked, nice bookplate, light foxing, else a good, solid copy. 60.00
