Memoirs of his own life by Tate Wilkinson( Book )

3 editions published in 1790 in English and held by 80 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In addition to being one of the leading theatrical managers and performers in England during the last half of the eighteenth century, Tate Wilkinson was, perhaps, the greatest mimic who ever lived. He had the ability to precisely imitate a person's voice, even a woman's, and also to duplicate the individual's walk, gestures, and facial features. To be "taken off" in the eighteenth century, however, was considered a serious personal insult, and Wilkinson suffered ostracism and threats of violence for exhibiting the peculiarities of others before the public
The life of Captain James Cook by Andrew Kippis( Book )

1 edition published in 1788 in English and held by 68 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The dissenting minister Andrew Kippis (1725-95) was a Member of the Society of Antiquaries and of the Royal Society. With this work of 1788, he was the first biographer of Captain James Cook (1728-79), although several of Cook's colleagues, including Johann Reinhold Forster in 1778 and David Samwell in 1786, had previously published memoirs of their service with him. Believing that 'his public transactions ... are the grand objects to which the attention of his biographer must be directed', Kippis draws on the official Admiralty accounts of Cook's voyages and focuses on his professional life. The book was criticised at the time for failing to convey Cook's personality and motivation, stressing his achievements without putting them in context. However, it remained the only biography for forty years, and shaped public perception of Cook as a brilliant navigator and commander, a fearless explorer and an exemplary British hero

Voyages to the coast of Africa by Saugnier( Book )

1 edition published in 1792 in English and held by 52 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A ... first-hand account of an ill-fated French expedition to explore west Africa in the late 18th century. The explorers, Messieurs Saugnier and Bresson were shipwrecked off the coast of Senegal, only to be sold into Arabic slavery, where they languished for a long time before being rescued. During their incarceration the two men learned Arabic and made many ... observations of the then rulers of Africa that are set down here. Despite their grim experiences, the two men were keen to return to Africa and the book is therefore a prospectus for other bold explorers to follow in their footsteps; and the area they traversed did indeed become France?s African empire."--Publishers website

Essays on the nature and principles of taste by Archibald Alison( Book )

1 edition published in 1790 in English and held by 45 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Taste is in general considered as that faculty of the human mind, by which we perceive and enjoy whatever is beautiful or sublime in the works of nature or art. The perception of these qualities is attended with an emotion of pleasure, very distinguishable from every other pleasure of our nature, and which is accordingly distinguished by the name of the emotion of taste. The distinction of the objects of taste, into the sublime and beautiful, has produced a similar division of this emotion, into the emotion of sublimity and the emotion of beauty. The inquiries made in this book naturally divide themselves into the following parts; and are to be prosecuted in the following order: (I) I shall begin with an analysis of the effect which is produced upon the mind, when the emotions of beauty or sublimity are felt. I shall endeavour to show, that this effect is very different from the determination of a sense; that it is not in fact a simple, but a complex emotion. The prosecution of the subject will lead to another inquiry of some difficulty and extent, viz. into the origin of the beauty and sublimity of the qualities of matter. (II) From this examination of the effect I shall proceed, in the second part, to investigate the causes which are productive of it; or, in other words, the sources of the beautiful and the sublime in nature and art. The prosecution of the subject, will lead me to the principal object of the inquiry, to show what is that law of mind, according to which, in actual life, this exercise or employment of imagination is excited; and what are the means by which, in the different fine arts, the artist is able to awaken this important exercise of imagination, and to exalt objects of simple and common pleasure, into objects of beauty or sublimity. (III) From the preceding inquiries I shall proceed, in the last part, to investigate the nature of that faculty by which these emotions are perceived and felt. I shall endeavour to show, that it has no resemblance to a sense; that as, whenever it is employed, two distinct and independent powers of mind are employed, it is not to be considered as a separate and peculiar faculty, and that it is finally to be resolved into more general principles of our constitution"--Introduction.
