"This first octavo edition is now almost as rare as the first edition, and has the advantage of including the definitive, corrected version of the text. The account was completed by George Vancouver's brother John, assisted by Captain Peter Puget, George having died before the work was finished. Vancouver's account of his voyage was first published in 1798 in 4 volumes (3 volumes of quarto text and 1 folio atlas volume). The text contained 1 engraved chart and 17 engraved plates, the atlas volume 10 folding engraved charts and 6 engraved plates of coastal profiles. For the present octavo edition, corrections were made to the text, and all 17 plates from the text volumes were reprinted using the original printing plates. There are only two folding charts included because the printing plates for the chart from the first edition text volumes, and the charts and plates in the first edition atlas were lost, and the decision was made to re-engrave only two charts."--Sotheby's website
Memoirs of the author of A vindication of the rights of woman by William Godwin( Book )

2 editions published in 1798 in English and held by 84 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"William Godwin's memoir of his wife, Mary Wollstonecraft, marks a transition in Godwin's philosophical development from extreme rationalism to the recognition of the moral importance of feeling and sympathy that was to energize his later writings. Memoirs also belongs to a tradition of biographical writing that sought to transform the consciousness of readers by using individual history as an agent of historical change. Written during the weeks following Wollstonecraft's early death, Memoirs provides an interpretation of the relations between Wollstonecraft's writings and her personal history, a candid account of her various relationships, and a vindication of her egalitarian intimacy with Godwin. This modern, scholarly edition, geared for student use, includes a wide range of primary sources, together with excerpts from Godwin's other writings and from his biographical models."--Jacket

Marmion : a tale of Flodden Field by Walter Scott( Book )

4 editions published between 1808 and 1809 in English and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The poem tells how Lord Marmion, a favourite of Henry VIII of England, lusts for Clara de Clare, a rich woman. He and his mistress, Constance De Beverley, forge a letter implicating Clara's fiancé, Sir Ralph De Wilton, in treason. Constance, a dishonest nun, hopes that her aid will restore her to favour with Marmion. When De Wilton loses the duel he claims in order to defend his honour against Marmion, he is obliged to go into exile. Clara retires to a convent rather than risk Marmion's attentions. Constance's hopes of a reconciliation with Marmion are dashed when he abandons her; she ends up being walled up alive in the Lindisfarne convent for breaking her vows. She takes her revenge by giving the Abbess who is one of her three judges documents that prove De Wilton's innocence. De Wilton, having returned disguised as a pilgrim, follows Marmion to Edinburgh where he meets the Abbess, who gives him the exonerating documents. When Marmion's host, the Earl of Angus is shown the documents, he arms De Wilton and accepts him as a knight again. De Wilton's plans for revenge are overturned by the battle of Flodden Field. Marmion dies on the battlefield, while De Wilton displays heroism, regains his honour, retrieves his lands, and marries Clara.
