This friendship album kept by the travelling student Mihály Pap contains mainly Latin, Greek, Hebrew, and German entries, beginning in 1765 with numerous contributions from Swiss cities (Bern, Lausanne, Zurich); in the later 1760s, he collects entries mainly from German cities (Worms, Regensburg, Nuremberg, Marburg, Duisburg, etc.) as well as from London and Oxford.

Oxidationsschatten durch beigelegtes Blatt eines Kataloges, St. a. V., Ebd. berieben u. fleckig, hds. Notiz des Autoren a. T., leicht fleckig, angestaubt, leichte Gbrsp. - Rétif de la Bretonne, [auch Restif de la Bretonne] (1734 - 1806), wurde 1734 in Sacy bei Auxerre als Sohn eines wohlhabenen Bauern geboren. Rétif de la Bretonne war seit seinem 15. Lebensjahr gelernter Drucker und wurde Autor von etwa 200 Büchern, die zum Teil noch nicht wissenschaftlich ausgewertet worden sind. Er verfasste Sittenromane und Sozialutopien und schrieb zuletzt, um Zeit zu sparen, direkt in den Setzkasten. Rétif de la Bretonne gilt oft als bloßer Pornograf. Tatsächlich hat er aber eine Ergänzung zu Sade`s Bild der Aristokratie in seinen freizügigen Schilderungen der niederen Stände geliefert. De Sade war ein Kontrahent Rétifs. Seine sexuelle Fixierung auf Schuhe, geschildert in dem Roman „Le Pied de Fanchette“, führte zu der Bezeichnung Retifismus für diese Art von Fetischismus. Zu seinen skurrilsten Einfällen gehört die Idee, per Gesetz die Verheiratung aller 16-jährigen Männer mit 32-jährigen Frauen zu gebieten. Nach 16 Jahren sollten diese Ehen automatisch geschieden werden, um dann wiederum eine jüngere zu heiraten. Vergleichbare Ideen hat auch Arthur Schopenhauer geäußert. Als Schilderer der Sitten der französischen Revolutionszeit hat ihn Iwan Bloch gewürdigt. Retif konnte sich rühmen jenseits des Rheins der meistgelesene (französische) Autor zu sein.

        Descrizione delle Feste celebrate in Parma l'anno MDCCLXIX per le auguste Nozze di Sua Altezza Reale l'Infante Don Ferdinando colla Reale Arciduchessa Maria Amalia.

      Parma, nella Stamperia Reale (di G.B.Bodoni), (1769), - in-folio imperiale (mm 535x430), f. (5, il primo f. bianco), pp. 76 di testo italiano e francese su due colonne (caratteri tondi e corsivi di corpo e spaziatura diversa), 36 ff. di tavole f.t., 1 f. bianco. Antiporta inc. in rame disegnata da Petitot e incisa da Volpato, frontespizio, realizzato dai medesimi artisti, con grande vignetta alle armi Borbone fiancheggiate dai leoni di Spagna, 5 testate, 8 capilettera e 19 finalini inc.; 36 tavole fuori testo incise in rame di cui 6 a doppia pagina. Legatura 800esca in mezza pelle e angoli, carta decorata ai piatti, titolo oro al dorso. Grandiosa pubblicazione voluta dalla Corte Ducale di Parma con la descrizione dei principali spettacoli allestiti per le nozze tra Ferdinando duca di Borbone e Amalia d'Asburgo, sorella dell'imperatore (''Descrizione degli abiti'', ''Nomi delle Nobil Persone impegnate nel torneo'', ''Le Pastorelle d'Arcadia, festa campestre'', ''Relazione'', ''Fiera Chinese''). Brooks segnala che ne furono tirate 2 edizioni, ciascuna di 400 copie, che però non risultano in vendita nei cataloghi del Bodoni, perché l'opera fu ben presto esaurita. L'imponente apparato decorativo fu affidato a Eurimond Alexandre Petitot, architetto e disegnatore nato a Lione nel 1727 ed ormai all'apice della sua carriera di architetto di corte, in collaborazione con il giovane Bodoni, solo da un anno in città come nuovo direttore della Stamperia Reale, e quindi all'esordio della sua gloriosa attività. Le Feste sono la seconda opera in cui i due collaborano e Petitot vi figura non solo quale inventore e realizzatore dei complessi progetti architettonici, ma anche come scenografo, costumista e decoratore, avendo fornito i disegni delle molte illustrazioni dell'opera, magistralmente rese da Benigno Bossi, principale riproduttore all'acquaforte, da Volpato, Patrini e altri. L'eco delle feste e della loro pubblicazione fu molto vasto. Jean Pierre Mariette si stupiva ''à voir sortir d'une imprimerie naissante un livre si parfaitement exécuté dans toutes ses parties.un chef-d'oeuvre''. Maria Antonietta confessava alla sorella Maria Amalia di aver spesso sfogliato il ''beau livre'' per ritrovarsi con lei. Stupendo esemplare della prima tiratura, nitidamente impresso su carta assai pesante. Brooks 6 e tavole I, III, V: ''Forse il più attraente di tutti i libri di Bodoni per la bellezza delle figure''. Ruggeri 859. Giani, p. 1-3: ''molte copie distrutte da varie circostanze e soprattutto deturpate dagli amatori di stampe.''. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Korte en eenvoudige handleyding tot het leeren van 't clavecimbel of orgel-spel. Tweede druk.Gouda, Johannes vander Klos, 1768. 4to. With an etching showing types of musical notes in text and a folding etched plate showing several aspects of staff notation. Modern cloth.

      [Advertisement] in: Opregte Haerlemse courant, 27 (1769), p. [2]; Boers, "Bouwstoffen tot eene Nederlandsche muzikale litteratuur", in: Caecilia VI, 2 (1849), p. 15; STCN (2 copies). Very rare second and enlarged edition of an introduction in learning to play keyboard instruments. In the preface, the author writes that the first edition of the treatise was highly praised and quickly sold out. As this necessitated a second edition, he used the occasion to add "everything which came to my mind while instructing [from the book]" (*2r) and include an engraved plate. In this "short and simple manual" the author gives the basics of musical staff notation and of playing basso continuo. Over the next 50 years, the book went through numerous editions but at the time proved to be too complicated for beginners. Therefore, Hess wrote a simplified edition of the book, containing more explanations and an extra illustration, which was published in 1808. No copies of the first edition of the Korte en eenvoudige handleyding could be located, nor could they be identified in any source (cf. Boers).Joachim Hess (1732-1819) was an organist and writer, who wrote several treatises on organs and organ playing. For almost sixty years he played the Moreau organ in the Sint-Janskerk in Gouda, which was changed according to his specifications. In his publications he gives great knowledge of all matters related to the organ and he was famous throughout the Netherlands for both his writing and his playing.With the title-page and the inner part and outer margin of the folding plate browned where they touch the endpapers; a good copy.

        A state of the evidence in the cause between His Grace the Duke of Hamilton, and others, pursuers, and Archibald Douglas, of Douglas, Esquire, defender. With remarks.

      London printed; and sold by C. Bathurst. and by Mess. Kincaid and Bell in Edinburgh 1769 - 4to., (12) + 392pp., with a long list of errata on verso of A4, including an additional erratum on a pasted-on slip, bound in a fine contemporary crimson morocco, fully gilt including inner dentelles and edges, spine ornately gilt in the compartments with sunbursts, leaf sprays, coronets and other devices, marbled endpapers. A magnificent copy, perhaps bound for presentation. With the 19th century armorial bookplate of Thomas Byron> (1772-1845), the rich landowner, property magnate and sometime M.P. for Hertford. Also with the earlier ownership inscription on flyleaf of H. Purlewent Fellow of Corpus Christi College, Oxford> and thereafter Rector of Brampton in Northamptonshire, who died in 1807. First edition. This is a particularly influential analysis of the enormous quantity of evidence produced in the famous society legal case of Hamilton v Douglas - the so-called Douglas cause which turned on the legitimacy and true parentage of Archibald Douglas (1748-1827) and his claim, launched in 1761, to the extensive Douglas estates. The case itself lasted some seven years, being finally resolved in Douglas's favour by the House of Lords in early 1769. Robert Richardson (1732-1781), Prebendary of Lincoln Cathedral and Chaplain-in-ordinary to the King, was for some years also chaplain to Sir Joseph Yorke in the Hague. It was apparently there that he undertook his Hamilton/Douglas research. His findings were put into the hands of counsel, his views coinciding with those of the House of Lords. Referring to 'this quarrel', his view was that the argument put forward by the Hamilton camp was 'unworthy the protection of a man of science .; their present proof [was] unworthy the credit of a man of experience; and that the speeches in favour of the pursuers . [were] so full of the most unaccountable mistakes in point of fact, and absurdities in point of argument, that they are unworthy the attention of any person in the world'.

Captain Carteret, in command of the Swallow , became separated from Captain Wallis and was feared lost. He discovered Pitcairn Island and some remote atolls in the South Seas. The first voyage under the not-yet-famous Captain Cook's command, on the Endeavour , was primarily of scientific nature . . . Entering the Pacific around Cape Horn, Cook reached Tahiti in 1769 and carried out the necessary astronomical observations.

Leaving Tahiti in July, Cook discovered, named, and charted the Society Islands, and . . . explored New Zealand . . . Cook then headed towards Australia and discovered and charted the eastern coast . . ., naming the area New South Wales. Cook's discoveries won him prominence, promotion, and the opportunity to sail again. They also ensured John Hawkesworth's position in maritime literary history, as the official chronicler of Cook's first voyage'' (Hill).With some water stains at the head of 1 quire (O) and the top edge of the map dirty, but otherwise in fine condition and wholly untrimmed.

        Observations on the expediency of shipbuilding at Bombay, for the service of His Majesty, and the East India Company.London, printed for Longman, Hurst, Rees, Orme and Brown (printed by Elizabeth Blackader), 1811. 8vo. With a stipple-engraved frontispiece portrait of the Bombay shipbuilder Jamsetjee Bomanjee, drawn by Edward Nash and engraved by William Haines. Modern half calf in convincing period style, gold- and blind-tooled spine.

      Goldsmith's Lib. 20255 (not noting the plate); Kress Lib. B5872 (lacking 2 ll. and not noting the plate); not in Bradley; Bruzelius. First and only edition of a detailed series of arguments promoting the use of Indian teak for shipbuilding, by William Money (1769-1834), superintendent of the Bombay Marine Board from 1803 to 1810 and later director of the British East India Company. He argues that teak is superior to oak for ships sailing in warm waters because it resists worm damage and notes that it is abundantly available on India's western Malabar coast, while there was a great scarcity of English Oak. He therefore suggests the British East India Company have ships built in India, avoiding the expense of shipping the wood to the London shipyards. Author's presentation copy, with "from the author" at the head of the title-page and with a July 1812 inscription by what must the recipient, J.D. Thompson, perhaps meaning the Breconshire magistrate James Duncan Thomson (d. 1851). With a tear and a couple creases in the last leaf, and a slight offset from the engraved portrait onto the title-page, but the book and binding are otherwise in very good condition, with generous margins. An important and detailed primary source for the history of shipbuilding in India.

Magni in orientalibus reg. obserratae recensentur." (3 ll.). "The significance of Tournefort to eighteenth-century botany, and to that of today, lies in his having classified all plants into genera. The Institutiones (1700) was in the main a translation of the Eléments de botanique into Latin; and the Corollarium Institutionum Rei Herbariae (1703) was a supplement written on his return from his travels into the Near East, describing 1350 genera which he had found there."

Plate 270 bound in upside down; tear in the lower margin of the half title to the "Tabulae generum"; inoffensive dampstain to the gutter, only in the rear, a bit more so on the very last few leaves.

        [Series of 3 coloured jigsaw puzzles]. La veille d'Austerlitz. With : La Nuit de Lodi. With : Clémence de l'empéreur.Paris, Ulysse, [ca. 1815]. Each puzzle measures 19.5 x 24.5 cm. Each puzzle with an engraved plate mounted on thin wood, coloured by a contemporary hand and cut to form a jigsaw puzzle, with engraved caption and short description below the image. Kept in the original cardboard box (!) with an etched and engraved sample plate for a fourth puzzle (with caption «Équité de l'empereur») on the top, coloured by a contemporary hand, and an embossed gilt-paper border, each puzzle with the original pink paper wrap-around slip preserved.

      A nice and colourful set of jigsaw puzzles depicting scenes from the life of Napoleon Bonaparte (1769-1821), 2 of the puzzles and the sample plate with address «Ulysse Paris» engraved in the image. Each puzzle has 20 pieces. The first depicts Napoleon Bonaparte calmly sleeping in a chair after having given orders to his generals on the eve of the battle of Austerlitz (1 Dec. 1805). The second shows a still fresh Napoleon addressing an exhausted soldier, a scene from the terrible battle at Lodi, Italy, 10 May 1796, between French forces under Napoleon Bonaparte and the Austrian rear guard led by Johann Beaulieu. The third shows Napoleon as merciful Emperor, receiving the thankful wife and children of a Prussian lord accused of conspiracy, but whom he nonetheless pardoned.The puzzle matching the scene mounted on the top of the box is not included; a few pieces cracked at thin spots; box slightly defective with traces of use and browned. A good set.

        Anmerkungen über die Branderschen Mikrometer von Glase und deren Gebrauch nebst Beylagen die Geschichte und die Vortheile dieser Erfindung betreffend.

      Eberhard Kletts Witwe, Augsburg 1769 - Neuer Pappband mit Buntpapierbezug, 2 Bll., 84 S., 32 Bll. Mit 3 mehrfach gefalteten Kupfertafeln im Anhang. Brachner et. al., G. F. Brander 1713-1783, Wissenschaftliche Instrumente aus seiner Werkstatt, Deutsches Museum 1983, S. 307 und 387. Poggendorff I, 1356. Steck I.14. Erste Ausgabe. - Enthält neben den Lambertschen Anmerkungen (S. 3-30) und einem Vorbericht des Verlegers drei Beiträge: 1. Tob. Mayers Beschreibung eines neuen Mikrometers. 2. G. F. Branders Beschreibung des neuen dioptrischen Sectors nebst einer zu dessen Gebrauch am Ende beygefügten sehr dienlichen Chordentabelle. 3. Eben desselben Beschreibung einer ganz neu verfertigten Libel oder Nivelir-Wage nebst Kupfern. Vor der Chordentabelle listet Brander in einer "Anzeige" die bei ihm erhältlichen Instrumente auf (S. 77-84). - Der berühmte Schweizer/Elsässer Physiker und Mathematiker Lambert (1728-1777) lernte Brander 1759 kennen, hielt sich mehrere Jahre in Augsburg auf und stand mit Brander in ständigem Kontakt. Später gab es einen regen Briefwechsel zwischen beiden, der für die Jahre 1765 bis 1776 durch J. Bernoulli dokumentiert ist. Lambert beschreibt in seinen Anmerkungen Branders bedeutendste technische Entwicklung im Hinblick auf präzise Messinstrumente, die Glasmikrometer, und geht auch auf die Entwicklungsgeschichte ein, bei der Tobias Mayer eine wesentliche Rolle spielt, dessen Abhandlung von 1748 Bestandteil der Publikation ist. "Vermutlich legte der Erfahrungsaustausch zwischen Mayer und Brander den Grundstein für Branders spätere, einzigartige Leistung: Die mit Diamant geritzten Glasmikrometer. . In den Jahren zwischen 1755 und 1761 muß Brander der wesentliche Durchbruch bei der allein ihm zukommenden, epochemachenden "Erfindung" der Glasmikrometer geglückt sein. . Für die damaligen feinmechanischen Verhältnisse erreichte er eine unerhörte Präzision und Feinheit der Teilungen des Maßstabs auf einer Glasplatte" (Brachner et. al., S. 21/22/23). - Gut erhaltenes, breitrandiges, nur am Kopf beschnittenes Exemplar in einem neuen Buchbindereinband. Die Tafeln teilweise leicht braunfleckig, meist am Rand. Papier etwas gebräunt, insgesamt nur wenig fleckig. 400 Gramm. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
