Kopenhagen, Joh. Benj. Ackermann, 1759. 18 n.n. + 180 S. OPgm. der Zeit, datiert 1762. EA. - St. a. T. u. letzter S., leichte Gbrsp., ansonsten schönes Expl. - Basedow, (1724 - 1790), studierte Theologie in Leipzig und war dann Hauslehrer in Holstein. Seit 1753 war Basedow Prof. der Moral, Rhetorik, später auch der Theologie an der dänischen Ritterakademie in Soroe. Wegen seiner aufklärerischen Schriften 1761 an das Gymnasium nach Altona versetzt, traf er auch hier auf den Widerstand orthodoxer Theologen um den Senior Johann Melchior Goeze. 1767 wurde Basedow bei Beibehaltung seines Gehalts entlassen. Unter dem Einfluß von Jean-Jacques Rousseaus Emile verfaßte er 1768 ein philanthropisches Erziehungsprogramm, in dem er ein lebensnahes, überkonfessionelles, unter staatlicher Aufsicht stehendes Bildungswesen forderte. 1774 gründete er in Dessau das Philanthropin, gab 1778 dessen Leitung ab und widmete sich literarischer Tätigkeit. Bedeutend war sein Elementarwerk (4 Bde., 1774), illustriert von Daniel Chodowiecki. (DBE) Versand D: 7,00 EUR Alte Literatur; Philosophie

BASEDOW, JOHANN BERNHARD
bey Johann Benjamin Ackermann, Kopenhagen 1759 - (10) Bll., 180 S. Halblederband mit Rückenschild und –vergoldung. Erste Ausgabe (Meusel I,191). – Titel im Bund mit Klebespuren, ein Blatt im Unterrand verstärkt, ein Blatt mit älterem Bibliotheksstempel im Unterrand, gelegentlich etwas stockfleckig. Frühe Schrift des bedeutenden Pädagogen BASEDOW (Hamburg 1724 – 1790 Magdeburg), entstanden in der Spätphase seiner Tätigkeit als Professor der Moral und schönen Wissenschaften an der Ritterakademie Soroe in Dänemark, bevor er 1761 entlassen wurde. Das Buch ist GELLERT gewidmet, der BASEDOWs Practische Philosophie für alle Stände (1758) gelobt hatte. BASEDOWs Neue Lehrart wird heute unter die fortschrittlichen Sprachlehrbücher seiner Zeit gezählt, war aber in Deutschland kaum bekannt und wenig einflussreich. Bemerkenswert ist sein Prinzip, Regeln nicht vorschreiben zu wollen, sondern aus dem Gebrauch des „größten Theils derer, die nach dem allgeinen Geständnisse am nachahmungswürdigsten sind“ abzuleiten.

Also included is Butler's hilarious satire on the Royal Society, 'The Elephant in the Moon', in which the 'elephant' turns out to be a fly caught in the telescope: 'A learn'd society of late, /The glory of a foreign state, /Agreed, upon a summer's night, / To search the Moon by her own light; / To take an invent'ry of all / Her real estate and personal; / And Make an accurate survey / Of all her lands, and how they lay...' .

INSTITUIÇAO]
Lisbon Miguel Rodrigues, 1759. folio, 30 + (2)pp., with a large woodcut device on title incorporating the royal arms of King Joseph I, several old worm tracks (neatly repaired), mainly in the margins, part of two letters of title only partly printed, bound, probably in the early 20th century, in vellum-backed boards, the boards themselves covered with what appears to be an 18th century French legal document, spine lettered in red and black, a little worm damage at head of spine. Nonetheless, a good, crisp, copy. First edition. This was an inaugural address to Joseph I, King of Portugal, announcing the establishment by the Pombal government of the Company of Pernambuco and Paraiba, with information on the commerce of Brazil prior to the Company's existence. For the relevance of this company to the modern debates on so-called 'public-private partnerships' see Rodrigues and Sangster's article in Business History,> vol.54, issue 7, 2012. 'Based on archival sources, and considering the social, economic and political context, the study helps to enhance understanding of how the Portuguese enlightened despotic regime developed and connected the empire through a corporatist interface with a private company'. During the middle years of the 18th century five commercial colonial trading companies were established by the Portuguese. The C.G.P.P. was awarded the monopoly on produce from the entire Brazilian north east - traditionally the most developed area in the country because of its sugar industry.'
