        Egenhändigt skrivet och undertecknat brev till baron Schwerin på Hjularöd daterat Lund den 6 januari 1835. 4:o.

      (2,1 blank,1) s. Har varit vikt. Pappersförlust i marginalen på det andra bladet uppkommen i samband med öppnandet av brevet. Litet hål i det andra bladet. Med Sven Nilssons röda lacksigill bevarat. Ur Gunnar Brusewitz bibliotek.. Brevet, som är på två sidor, innehåller en nyårsönskning och ett tack för en uggla som Nilsson fått sig tillsänd av Schwerin. "Uggleslägtet är verkligen ett af de svåraste i hela ornithologien att riktigt skilja arterne åt; det war mig derföre högst glädjande att herr baronen verkeligen ganska riktigt bestämdt den öfwersända foglen." Särskilt svårt är att skilja sparv-, minerva- och hökuggla åt. Det tillsända exemplaret var en hökuggla och Nilsson understryker dess sällsynthet: han har under 12 års tid endast haft tillfälle att skjuta tre eller fyra exemplar av fågeln. Carl Gustaf von Schwerin (1769-1855) på Hjularöd i Harlösa socken i Skåne var kammarherre och hade i sin ungdom varit löjtnant i det militära. Hans hjälpsamhet mot Nilsson har denne betygat redan i förordet till "Skandinavisk fauna" 1824

        Theatre de L. B. Picard, de l’Academie Francaise

      (Picard, Louis Baptiste, 1769-1828). Fournier, Edouard. Théatre de L. B. Picard de l'Académie Française. Nouvelle édition, précedée d'une biographie de l'auteur par M. Edouard Fournier. Ornée du portrait en pied colorié des principaux acteurs qui ont joué d'original. Paris: Laplace, Sanchez et Cie, 1880. 4to. Original wrappers, glassine. Uncut, xiv, 777 p., and table. Illustrated with 17 hand-colored engraved plates by Follet of characters in the plays of Picard, and a portrait of Picard himself as frontispiece; all full-length. Small tear on cover, l.l., but overall a fine copy. Louis Baptiste Picard (1769-1828) was one of the few successful dramatists of France under Napoleon. After studying law, he became an actor, author and manager. Napoleon found in him an "unquenchable gaiety." Picard excelled in depicting bourgeois and provincial interiors. His play La Petite Ville (1801) went on to England as The Merry Widow. He was founder of the Odéon, second only to the comédie-Française in importance. His many comedies show an indebtedness to Beaumarchais, yet stay free from a deeper satire. In 1897 he qualified for the Légion d'Honneur and the French Academy.

        Vue de la Ville de Genes du cot? de Bisagno.

      Genova, 1769. Incisione in rame all'acquaforte, b/n, cm 50,5 x 75 (il foglio). L'Autore (Genova, 1721). Nel 1769 il Giolfi pubblic?, dedicandola a Giuseppe Doria e a suo padre Giovanni Francesco, morto prematuramente, la sua opera pi? nota: "Raccolta di diverse vedute della citt? di Genova e delle principali sue parti e fabbriche", composta da venti acqueforti eseguite in collaborazione con i toscani Giuseppe Torricelli, per la stesura preparatoria, e Gian Lorenzo Guidotti, per l'incisione (ma anche latri furono i suoi collaboratori). Per quanto la personalit? del G. sembri, in queste vedute, essere ancora incapace di risolvere certi problemi tecnici ed espressivi della "veduta" (pensiamo alle coeve esperienze veneziane, fiorentine, romane e napoletane), la raccolta rappresent? un'iniziativa nuova per Genova. Il frutto del lavoro del Giolfi, e dei suoi collaboratori, ? soprattutto un'occasione importante per la formazione dell'immagine di Genova come citt? d'arte, in un momento in cui s'afferma per la prima volta il genere letterario della guida. Del resto, anche le didascalie bilingui (italo - francesi) della raccolta giolfiana, contribuiscono al costituirsi di un fiorente mercato librario e poliglotta. L'opera ebbe molto successo, sia nell'ambiente accademico sia in quello dell'editoria locale, fu pi? volte ristampata e ampliata, e inserite in altre importanti raccolte (alcune tavole furono inserite da Carlo Giuseppe Ratti nell' "Instruzione", 1780; e il libraio editore Yves Gravier orn? di alcune vedute del Giolfi le edizioni della sua "Description des beaut?s de G?nes et de ses environs". Oggi si conosce una sola copia rilegata dell'intera raccolta di incisioni (fogli sparsi fanno invece la loro comparsa sul mercato antiquario), donata dallo stesso Giolfi e conservata presso la Biblioteca del Convento dei Cappuccini della Ss. Concezione di Genova (a un frate erudito e storico genovese, Tommaso Maria Olivieri, si deve l'apposizione della data al momento dell'acquisizione dell'opera e alcune notizie che identificano l'autore come professore di pittura e segretario dell'Accademia ligustica; dal frontespizio del manoscritto si evince pure l'appartenenza dell'artista all'Accademia parmense). Nell'evocazione del clima urbano l'opera scansa da s? ogni pedanteria e ufficialit?, per l'assenza di monumenti quali la cattedrale, palazzo ducale o palazzo S. Giorgio. Nel frontespizio ? collocata la "Veduta della citt? di Genova", ideata secondo uno schema ottico a met? strada tra la veduta di costa e quella a volo d'uccello, che crea una figurazione raccorciata e diretta sull'edilizia che si affaccia sullo specchio portuale, lasciando in ombra la collina. L'impianto si distende dalla Lanterna fino alle ville d'Albaro, trascurando la Val Bisagno e prediligendo il monte Fasce. La nostra "Veduta di Genova dalla parte di Bisagno" offre una particolare impaginazione paesistica ad anfiteatro della citt?, una schematizzazione che individua le linee portanti di una zona periferica dove l'abbraccio delle colline ? interrotto dalle grandi opere difensive. Rara. Seppur rifilata e con alcuni difetti sui margini, bella veduta con un buono stato dell'inciso.

        Institutes of Moral Philosophy. For the use of students in the College of Edinburgh

      Edinburgh: A. Kincaid & J. Bell, 1769 First edition. Contemporary calf, rubbed. Twelvemo. Corners worn, rebacked in recent calf, with contrasting lettering and dating labels, hinges strengthened. Signature of Rev. John Brown (1784-1858) of the United Presbyterian College, with the institution's later bookplate. Small wormholes to title and short tear to half-title repaired, else very clean and crisp. In 1764, Ferguson took up the Chair of Ethics and Pneumatical Philosophy at the University of Edinburgh, having previously held the Chair of Natural Philosophy (from 1759). A short conspectus of his lectures was published in 1761, and Institutes of Moral Philosophy in 1769. The lectures were very popular not only with students but with members of the Edinburgh intelligentsia, and they became a standard university text in Russia and Germany. Institutes was also one of about a dozen books by Scottish authors (of a total of 550) that James Madison selected for importation into America in 1782 for the library of the U.S. Congress. It also elucidates suggestions and innovations in Ferguson's Essay on the History of Civil Society, published two years previously, in 1767.

        Christophorus Jacobus Trew

      [Nuremberg]: [n.d. but after 1769]. Mezzotint, on laid paper. Some light marginal spotting and surface soiling. 15 7/8 x 10 3/4 inches. 21 5/8 x 14 1/2 inches. An important mezzotint portrait by and after Johann Jakob Haid, of the author of one of the greatest of all botanical books. Johann Jakob Haid came from a German family of artists and printmakers. Haid worked initially with the animal painter Johann Elias Ridinger, but he soon went on to found a well-known publishing house in Augsburg.This portrait is from a series which pictured all those most closely involved in the publication of Trew's Plantae Selectae, and was originally bound into that great botanical work. Dr. Trew (1695-1769) was a Nuremberg physician, scholar, botanist and collector whose greatest contribution to the worlds of art and botany was his patronage of Georg Ehret and publication of Plantae Selectae and Hortus Nitidissimus. All of Plantae Selectae and much of Hortus... are engravings after drawings by Ehret.

        Additional Articles to the Specimen of an Etimological Vocabulary; Or, Essay, by Means of the Analitic Method, to Retrieve the Antient Celtic. by the Author of a Pamphlet, Entitled, the Way to Things by Words, and to Words by Things

      London: Printed for Lockyer Davis. 1769. First Edition. Hardcover. Recent quarter calf over marbled boards with five raised bands on spine and contrasing spine label bearing gilt titles, internally clean and bright, half title before main body of text and final advertisment leaf at rear. (ESTC T4130) , John Cleland (1710-1789) is best known for his erotic novel "Memoirs of a Woman of Pleasure". Cleland claimed to have written most of it while living in Bombay, where he was working for the East India Company, and that he'd written it to prove to a colleague that it was possible to write about a prostitute without using vulgar language. However the work was not completed until 1748, at which time Cleland was in prison for non-payment of debts. The book seems to have solved Clelands financial problems but did lead to his prosecution for the production of an obscene work. He went on to write a number of other novels, several plays (which were never produced) and a series of linguistic treatises, of which this is the third. In them he explored the celtic roots of English words, suggested links between Welsh and Hebrew, with the implication of the later being derived from the former, and plagiarized an account of Sanskrit by an earlier author. Clelands linguistic theories lack basis in fact and reflect the author's biases and idiosyncracies. , 8vo 8" - 9" tall, [ii] iii-xvii [iii] 46 [4] pp .

        Daime Fauve

      A detailed hand colored lithograph by Frederic Cuvier (1769-1832) & Geoffroy Saint-Hilaire (1772-1844) from their sweeping book "Histoire Naturelle des Mammiferes, avec les figures originales." that was published in Paris in 1824-42. Overall this print measures 12? x 18?. This rare publication of mammals was originally published in 72 parts (to be bound in seven volumes) under the auspices of the Museum d'Histoire Naturelle of Paris. The animals were drawn from life mainly at the zoo Jardin des Plantes in Paris. The majority of the descriptions were by Cuvier, with Geoffroy Saint-Hilaire editing the work and providing occasional articles (indicating by his initials at the end of each article). The two final parts were edited and seen through the press by Cuvier?s son. A quarto edit was started in 1826, but ceased publication (with the 13th part) in July 1833. These are among some of the most exquisitely rendered images of animals ever published. Cuvier has successfully brought each animal to life by his exceptional talent for detail without forgetting the characteristics that give them personality. We will not be knowingly undersold on this work of art. Overall this print is in fair condition with some staining throughout

        Uitgezochte Planten, beschreven door... Trew... iut het latyn vertalt door Cornelius Pereboom

      Amsterdam: Jan Christian Sepp, [1769]-1771-[1774]. Folio. (20 2/3 x 14 2/5 inches). 3 mezzotint portraits of Trew, G.D. Ehret and J.J. Haid, 100 hand- coloured engraved plates by Johann Jacob Haid and Johann Elias Haid after Georg Dionysius Ehret, each with the first word of the caption heightened in gold. Contemporary Dutch mottled calf gilt, covers with central panel surrounded by gilt roll-tool border of stylized foliage. Modern tan cloth box, tan morocco lettering piece. An excellent copy of the first Dutch edition of Trew's celebrated Plantae Selectae - one of the greatest eighteenth century botanical books, with 100 plates after paintings by Georg Dionysius Ehret. Of the work, Linnaeus would write to Trew: "The miracles of our century in the natural sciences are your work of Ehret's plants, Edwards' work of birds and Roesel's of insects, nothing to equal them was seen in the past or will be in the future." Christoph Trew, a physician and amateur botanist, had for a number of years been an admirer of Ehret's work. Ehret, a brilliant botanical artist, was unrivalled in his ability to "achieve realism, majesty, ineffable colour, all in one breathtaking look" (Hunt). He was born in Heidelberg in 1710 and originally worked as a gardener, practicing drawing in his spare time. His artistic abilities led him to the service of a Regensburg banker named Leskenkohl who had commissioned him to copy plates in van Rheede tot Draakestein's Hortus indicus malabaricus (1678-1693); it was during this period that Trew met Ehret. Trew was to remain a friend and patron of Ehret throughout his life, and by 1742 the germ of what was to become the present publication was already under discussion when Trew wrote to Christian Thran in Carlsruhe, "Every year I receive some beautifully painted exotic plants [by Ehret] and have already more than one hundred of them, which with other pieces executed by local artists, should later on… constitute an appendicem to Weinmann's publication." Meanwhile, Ehret had moved to London in the late 1730s, where he painted the recently introduced exotics at the Chelsea Physic Garden and established himself as a teacher of flower-painting and botany. Discussions about the projected work continued by letter until in 1748; Johann Jacob Haid from Augsburg agreed to produce the engravings from Ehret's drawings. The first part was published in 1750, with the six subsequent parts appearing before Trew's death 1769. With the help of Benedict Christian Vogel, Professor of Botany at the University of Altdorf, the work was completed in 1773. The present edition was begun at about the time of Trew's death. Employing the same plates as had been used in the first edition, the Dutch publisher Jan Christian Sepp, who specialized in the publication of deluxe natural history books and had them very carefully coloured (the higher quality of the hand-colouring of this edition is self-evident - and arranged for Pereboom to translate the text.

He believed that these so-called Homunculi would survive even the most severe catastrophes, like the Flood." (courtesy of whonamedit). Bonnet was the first naturalist to propose the theory of parthenogenesis in this work which is claimed to be rare. 1769 was the year of publication of the first edition of this work, but I do not know which publisher issued the true first - this print was in Amsterdam but another edition appeared in the same year in Geneva. Contents very bright and clean, original full leather binding in poor condition - weak hinges, chewed edges, but worth repairing as it is gilt tooled with raised bands.

        La palingénésie philosophique ou Idées sur l'état passé et sur l'état futur des êtres vivants. §

      A geneve: Chez Claude Philibert et Barthelemi Chirol, 1769. relié. 2 tomes en 2 Vol. in 8 (11,5x20cm). Editiion originale, assez rare ; une contrefaçon est parue à la même date à Amsterdam. Plein veau blond glacé et marbré d'époque. Dos lisse orné. Pièce de titre et de maroquin rouge. Un petit manque en tête du tome I. 5 coins émoussés. Frottements. Sans aucun doute la plus ambitieuse et la plus remarquable étude de Bonnet qui lui valut l'appellation de père de la biologie moderne. Cette oeuvre de biologie théorique puisant sa source dans une réflexion multi-disciplinaire et son postulat chez Leibniz (l'immortalité de l'âme) prétend que la Terre subit périodiquement des catastrophes universelles qui détruisent presque toute vie et que les survivants montent chaque fois d'un degré sur l'échelle de l'évolution. Bonnet fut le premier à utiliser le terme d'évolution dans un contexte biologique. L'ouvrage préfigure également la psychologie expérimentale. Il existerait en chaque être des germes qui lui préexistent et assure la survie de l'espèce, la thèse de Bonnet annonçant les théories et découvertes des gènes. C'est la cécité qui chez Bonnet mit un arrêt aux expérimentations et l'engagea sur la voie de la réflexion philosophique. - Chez Claude Philibert et Barthelemi Chirol, A geneve _1769, 2 tomes en 2 Vol. in 8 (11,5x20cm), xxvj (2) 427pp; (1) et (2) iv (2) 448pp., relié. - relié

In French. Charles Bonnet (March 13, 1720 May 20, 1793), Swiss naturalist and philosophical writer, was born at Geneva, of a French family driven into Switzerland by the religious persecution in the 16th century. In this work, Bonnet argued that females carry within them all future generations in a miniature form. He believed these miniature beings, sometimes called hormonal, would be able to survive even great cataclysms such as the biblical Flood; he predicted, moreover, that these catastrophes brought about evolutionary change, and that after the next disaster, men would become angels, mammals would gain intelligence, and so on. Condition: In roan bindings. Externally, generally smart with slight shelfwear, mainly to corners and to head of spine. Internally, firmly bound with a couple of small chips to the first and last few pages of the second volume. Generally bright and clean but with the odd spot and previous owner's ink inscriptions to the front and rear of both volumes. Overall: VERY GOOD.

        [Beaux illustrés du XVIIIe & Reliures en plein maroquin] Les saisons, poëme

      A Amsterdam: S.n., 1769. relié. In 8 (13x19,5cm). Edition originale, finement illustrée de 5 figures par Le Prince et Gravelot, gravées par Delaunay, Prévost, Rousseau, Saint-Aubin et Watelet. 1 fleuron en forme de lyre sur le titre et 4 vignettes en-tête gravées à l'eau-forte par Choffard. Cohen, 1884, 534p. Impression sur papier fin, supérieur, certainement Hollande. Plein Maroquin vert émeraude fin XIXe signé Petit. Dos à nerfs orné, titre doré et date en queue. Triple filet d'encadrement sur les plats. Riche dentelle intérieure. Tranches dorées. Une fine rayure sur le plat inférieur. Magnifique exemplaire parfaitement établi, d'une grande fraîcheur. Les saisons sont précédees d'une préface sur la poésie buccolique et champêtre et suivies des contes (philosophique comme Ziméo), des pièces fugitives, et enfin des fables orientales. Voltaire eut une grande admiration pour Saint-Lambert, et notamment pour son oeuvre maîtresse : Les saisons. Cette poésie descriptive n'est d'ailleurs pas sans charme et elle continuera d'être goûtée au XIXe siècle. Saint-Lambert fut en outre incontournable pour la société littéraire du XVIIIe par sa présence dans les salons. - S.n., A Amsterdam _1769, In 8 (13x19,5cm), xxviij, 369pp., relié. - Beaux illustrés du XVIIIe & Reliures en plein maroquin relié

They both remain fundamental texts of Siberian scholarship, and both are some of the first descriptions at all of the areas concerned. First issued in Paris 1761 together with an atlas. Chappe: second edition of his work. Kracheninnikow: the third edition, but the first translated directly from the Russian and approved by a member of the Academy in St. Petersbourg. The first French, the first English and the first German editions were only issued in abridged form. The first Russian edition appeared in 1755. Kracheninnikow joined the Russian scientific expedition to East Siberia, lead by Gmelin, and he was the only member of the expedition to penetrate Kamtchatka; he stayed there for four years. The work contains a detailed description of the North-east Coast of America, Alaska, and the Aleutian Islands and thus constitutes one of the first descriptions at all of these parts of the world.
