The Works of the Right Honourable Edmund Burke.  First American, from the Last London Edition. Vol. I-IV, Burke, Edmund
3 Burke, Edmund The Works of the Right Honourable Edmund Burke. First American, from the Last London Edition. Vol. I-IV
Boston John West and O.C. Greenleaf 1806-1807 First American Edition Hardcover Good with no dust jacket 
The set is in good antiquarian condition. It is ex-library from an institution and has been handsomely bound in old green buckram with gilt to the spine. The gilt is just still legible. The interiors have normal library markings, some minor foxing, very occasional pencil marks, small repair to first blank of Vol. I, Vol. II title has been remounted, owner inscription on all titles and some sections (the same, very hard to decipher); the section on the French Revolution has some markings in the text and margins, section on conciliation with America has an ink blot in the margin but otherwise clean. Bindings and book blocks are sturdy. Burke (1729-1797) was an Anglo Irish statesman, author, orator, political theorist, and philosopher who served for many years in the House of Commons of the United Kingdom as a member of the Whig party. He is mainly remembered for his opposition to the French Revolution B a surprise to many as Burke had been a champion of American independence. His vigorous opposition led to his becoming the leading figure within the conservative faction of the Whig party, which he dubbed the "Old Whigs", as opposed to the pro French Revolution "New Whigs" led by Charles James Fox. Burke was praised by both conservatives and liberals in the nineteenth century and since the twentieth century he has generally been viewed as the philosophical founder of modern conservatism -- and one of the greatest polemicists in the English language. This is a major collection of his works and speeches; Ex-Library; 8vo 8" - 9" tall

The British Mercury; or Historical and Critical Views of the Events of the Present Times.  Volumes 2, 3, and 4 The 2nd Edition, Corrected, du Pan, J. Mallet
13 du Pan, J. Mallet The British Mercury; or Historical and Critical Views of the Events of the Present Times. Volumes 2, 3, and 4 The 2nd Edition, Corrected
London T. Cadell Jun. and W. Davies 1799-1800 Second Edition Hardcover Good with no dust jacket 
517 pp, 512 [9] pp, 500 pp. This is a three volume set (of 5), Volumes 2, 3 and 4, in good antiquarian condition. In what appears to be the original very attractive tree calf full leather bindings with 5 raised bands on the spine, floriated gilt compartments as well as red and black morocco labels. Moderate wear to the bindings, joints and corners, some rubbing, one red label has a chip and a crack. Interiors have the signature of a father, then later the signature of the son (the family were descendants of Joan of Beaufort and John of Gaunt). Some minor foxing, spotting and wear to the interiors, but in general sound and clean. The English edition is very scarce in commerce - we could find no record of any other copies for sale or at auction - and relatively scarce in holdings. Most libraries have only the digital resource, not the actual books (Worldcat's recordkeeping on this is abysmal). A highly sought after - and scarce! - English language edition of the periodical from renowned French journalist and the 'spokesman' for the refugees of the French Revolution, Jacques Mallet du Pan. Contains brilliant analyses on the rise of Bonaparte and the Republican wars. Mallet du Pan defends the principles of a constitutional monarchy for all of Europe, taking inspiration from the British model.

Du Pan (1749-10 May 1800) was a French journalist, who took up the Royalist cause during the French Revolution. He was sent on a mission (1791-1792) byLouis XVI to Frankfort to try and secure the sympathy and intervention of the German princes. From Germany he travelled to Switzerland and from Switzerland to Brussels in the Royalist interest.He published a number of anti-revolutionary pamphlets, and a violent attack on Bonaparte and the Directory resulted in his being exiled in 1797 to Berne. In 1798 he came to London, where he founded the Mercure britannique. He died at Richmond, Surrey, on the 10th of May 1800,

The Mercury was initially published in French, but the English edition followed shortly. It was published with the support of subscribers and the books contain an advertisement advising subscribers that their dues for additional volumes should be sent in if they want to continue receiving the numbers. Du Pan also warns that the book is being published on the Continent but any such edition is pirated and not to be trusted, only the London editions should be purchased. ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall
