Bruce, Michael
Printed by J. Robertson, Edinburgh, 1770. FIRST EDITION, 8vo, pp. viii, ii, 117, [1]. Contemporary sheep. Light foxing and browning, a few stains. Edges rubbed and a bit worn, rebacked with red morocco label. Ownership inscription of Alexander Buchan to title-page. The first, posthumous, publication of poems by the short-lived 'poet of Lochleven', Michael Bruce (1746-1767). Edited and seen through the press by Bruce's schoolfriend, John Logan, it contains only a small selection - omitting much of Bruce's religious poetry and hymns - and Logan claims this is still padded out with poems by other hands. Logan, however, later claimed some of Bruce's poems as his own and his preface may not be wholly trustworthy. Further, expanded editions followed in the next few decades, but the first is one of the scarcest. ESTC T144078. [Attributes: First Edition]

First German edition, first issue. Kinsky p. 196; Hoboken 2, 332; Hirsch, IV, 319. Kinsky considers the Breitkopf & Härtel edition to be the first, however, it is actually predated by the edition published by Clementi in 1810. The present first issue of the German first edition is very rare. No copy of this piano part has appeared at auction in nearly 70 years. The Fifth Piano Concerto - the Emperor - is composed on a large scale, is the most ambitious in scope and longest of all the concertos by Beethoven, and is regarded by many as his finest essay in this form. Unquestionably the best known of Beethoven's piano concerti, it is perhaps the best known piano concerto by any composer. One of Beethoven's great iconoclastic works, it is a composition in which the composer reinvents the piano concerto, demolishing the older st … [Click Below for Full Description]

The second of two rondos for piano composed in 1797, the present work bears a dedication to Countess Henriette von Lichnowsky. Richer and on a larger scale than its earlier counterpart, the G major Rondo is full of tender affection. One of the first things to strike the listener is the greater exchange of material between the hands where the left hand frequently takes an active role.

Issued by the firm of Erard, from whose instrument manufacturing wing the composer would order a piano in 1803, the present publication was advertised in the Journal de Paris, January 31, 1801. The Piano Sonata No. 8 in C minor, Op. 13, commonly known as Sonata Pathétique, was written in 1798 when the composer was 27 years old, and was published in 1799. Dedicated to his friend Prince Karl von Lichnowsky, it has remained one of his most celebrated compositions. Although commonly thought to be one of the few works to be named by the composer himself, it was actually titled Grande sonate pathétique (to Beethoven's liking) by the publisher, who was impressed by the sonata's tragic sonorities.

(title with engraving of wreath, ribbon); verso of title page notice in French and German regarding the three manners of performing the work; 3-27 pp. Price: "10 francs." Engraved throughout. [PN] 187. Left edge rough, first (title) and final leaves separated from the block, else a very clean and crisp copy. Kinsky p. 35. The present early edition was published shortly after Mollo's first edition appeared in 1801 and is in striking agreement with that edition, even reproducing a number of errors of engraving found there. As with the first edition, this Simrock copy of the solo piano part includes figured bass and orchestral cues, but adds in many places small notes for the right hand, thus giving the player a choice of three different modes of performance (see title page notice): with stringed instruments only, with a few wind-instruments, or with full orchestra. Beethoven's so-called First Piano Concerto in C major was actually not his first: the one known as the 'Second Concerto', op. 19 in B-flat major, was written much earlier. However, he spent so much time elaborating the B-flat major Concerto that the C-major Concerto preceded it into print, and is thus called his 'First'. But even the First was revised several times. Beethoven probably performed it for the first time at the Hofburgtheater during an academy of the Tonkünstler Society on 29 March 1795.

Book plate to inner front board, from the library of Percy Digby Hawker, dated by hand April 1877, with initial A., possibly for auction of Coussemaker's library that year in Brussels. The present first German edition of early 1822 is the earliest edition of Beethoven's Second Symphony as an independent work; it follows the edition printed in London 1808, in which the work was included among a collection of symphonies by Haydn, Mozart, and Beethoven. Composed in 1801-2 and premiered under Beethoven's baton at the Theater an der Wien on April 5, 1803, this symphony has been described by many biographers as the closure of his early Vienna period, the first of three periods into which Beethoven's life and works have repeatedly been cast by historians including Schlosser (1828), Fétis (1837), Lenz (1852), and others.

Sold together with a facsimile of the first edition violin part (12 p). RARE FIRST EDITION OF THE PIANO SCORE OF THE SO-CALLED "KREUTZER SONATA", a slightly later issue with the small correction to the title of "uno stile" (instead of 'un stilo) and the addition of "per" before the composer's name. The Violin Sonata No. 9, commonly known as the Kreutzer Sonata, was published as Beethoven's Opus 47. It is known for its demanding violin part, unusual length (a typical performance lasts slightly less than 40 minutes), and emotional scope -- while the first movement is predominantly furious, the second is meditative and the third joyous and exuberant. It was originally dedicated to the violinist George Bridgetower (1778-1860), who performed it with Beethoven at the premiere on 24 May 1803 at the Augarten Theatre. But following a dispute after the concert, Beethoven removed the dedication and changed it instead to the great virtuoso Rodolphe Kreutzer.

The present first issue of the first edition of the score of Beethoven's Fourth Symphony is not recorded in the collection of the Beethoven-Haus in Bonn. The more commonly-found second issue, entitled "4me Grande Simphonie", appeared later the same year. This is thus a rare copy of the full score of the symphony Robert Schumann characterized as "like a slender Greek maiden between two Norse giants" [The Third & Fifth Symphonies]. The fourth-published symphony by Beethoven was composed in 1806 and premiered in March 1807 at a private concert in Vienna at the town house of Prince Lobkowitz. The first public performance was at the Burgtheater in Vienna in April 1808. The … [Click Below for Full Description]

In-8, broché, couverture de papier marbré tourbillon, xxiv, 207 p., (1) p. d'approbation et privilège, exemplaire entièrement non rogné, partiellement non coupé, tel que paru. Edition originale de cet ouvrage que l'auteur, Jean-François Colas dit Colas de Guyenne (1702-1772), prévôt et chanoine de l'église royale de Saint-Aignan à Orléans, dédie au duc d'Orléans frère du roi. L'auteur a l'ambition de renouveler le traité alors de référence 'Manière de bien cultiver la vigne ( ) dans le vignoble d'Orléans' (1712), de Jacques Boullay, pour fournir un manuel plus précis, plus clair et moins polémique que son prédécesseur. Il envisage toutes les étapes de la production du vin, de la plantation de la vigne aux vendanges, puis expose "la manière de faire le vin, de le gouverner & de le vendre avec avantage" ("assortiment des raisins – Manière de les écraser – Du tems que le vin doit cuver – De la manière de gouverner le pressoir – Le vin nouveau" - Etc.). Dans un "Avis préliminaire aux cultivateurs", l'auteur étudie les qualités personnelles essentielles que doit posséder le "bon vigneron". (Herluison, 'Imprimeurs & libraires d'Orléans', n°431. Oberlé, 'Bibliothèque bachique de B. Chwartz, 2002, C-193. Simon, 'Bibliotheca gastronomica', 361).

[VOC - SAILOR'S MANUAL].
100 pp.Little known Dutch sailor's manual that aims to provide all the information necessary to sail a ship from Texel to the Dutch East Indies. It describes the places, currents, winds, depths and hazards that one should be aware of when making this journey. The identity of the author is unknown, the title-page describing him only as "een voornaam liefhebber der zeevaart".This title does not appear in any major maritime reference work. The Amsterdam Catholic bookseller Ferdinand(us) Orsanti or Orzanti announced publication of the first edition (with only 72 pp.) in Nieuwe vaderlandsche letter-oefeningen, 7 (1770), p. 140, but we have not located a copy. It appears to be the third and last edition. All editions are very rare and none is held by a Dutch maritime library.The 1778 privilege in the prelims, "Copy van de previlegie", states that the publishers Johannes van Keulen and sons planned to include this sailor's manual with other maritime manuals in a future publication, Handboek van de zeelieden, but no publication with that title is known and Hulst van Keulen's Zeemans hand-boeck (1781/82) does not include the present work.Owner's inscription on the title-page, the first few pages slightly stained. Binding supports weak, one broken. Covers soiled and slightly frayed.l NCC (2 copies); cf. J.H.

Illustrated with copper plates. 8vo., a very good copy in a contemporary calf binding, with slight cracking to the spine.||Elihu Thomson’s copy with his signature and bookplate of the Elihu Thomson Collection of the Franklin Institute Library, deaccessioned. Initially Ferguson’s lectures dealt mainly with astronomy and mechanics, and resulted in his hugely successful textbooks Astronomy explained upon sir Isaac Newton’s Principles (1756) and Lectures on Select Subjects in Mechanics (1760), but from 1768 onwards he included electricity in his lecture courses, and as this topic was not covered in his two text books he produced this introduction.Elihu Thomson was born in Manchester in 1853 and grew up in Massachusetts. He became one of the most prolific inventors in US history, eventually joining Thomas Edison to form the General Electric Company. Thomson was granted 696 US patents for various types of inventions related to electricity, including arc-lights, generators, electric welding machines and X-ray tubes.| [Attributes: First Edition]

[10], 118; 117, [25] pp. First edition of the Dutch translation of a richly illustrated work on shells, by the German naturalist Georg Wolfgang Knorr (1705-1761). The 190 engraved plates are all coloured by hand and show almost 1000 different shells, each accompanied by a brief description on the text leaves. Most of the shells depicted came from some large collections and cabinets of curiosities in the Netherlands and Germany, including those of the Dutch physician Martinus Houttuyn and the merchant Van der Meulen, which included many exotic shells from the East and West Indies. The cabinets of curiosities located at Amsterdam had some of the most elaborate and exotic collections, because many of these objects reached the city via the Dutch East and West Indian Company. Knorr isn't very specific in the naming the origin of the shells, often just mentioning "the East Indies" or "Africa". The last 10 plates, published after Knorr's death, depict white shells placed on a brown/black background for contrast.From the outstanding and wide-ranging collection of the Dutch entrepreneur Dr. Anton C.R. Dreesmann (1923-2000). Title-page of part 1 slightly stained, some occasional minor spotting along the margins, but overall in very good condition and virtually untrimmed, leaving br … [Click Below for Full Description]

NOZEMAN, Cornelius, Martinus HOUTTUYN and Jan Christiaan SEPP.
Nederlandsche vogelen; volgens hunne huishouding, aert, en eigenschappen beschreeven.Amsterdam, Jan Christiaan Sepp (volumes III-V: and son), 1770-1829. 5 volumes. Imperial folio (52 x 35.5 cm). With hand-coloured engraved title-page to each volume, 250 hand-coloured copper-engraved plates (50 in each volume), and some woodcut tailpieces. Contemporary half calf, gold-tooled spine. [10], 92; [4], II, [2], 93-194, IV; [8], 195-294; [8], IV, 295-394; [4], VI, 395-500 pp. First edition of a famous and beautifully illustrated ornithological work, one of the most important works on birds in the Netherlands. The text was written by the Dutch remonstrant preacher and naturalist Cornelis Nozeman (1720-1786), and after his death continued by the naturalist Martinus Houttuyn (1720-1798). As the title suggests, the work is restricted to native Dutch birds, which are depicted in 250 hand-coloured engravings. They show a wide variety of birds, including waterfowl, poultry, birds of prey, songbirds etc., mostly shown in their natural surroundings and sometimes accompanied by their nests and/or eggs. Nozeman starts his descriptions with information from earlier sources, followed by the bird's appearance, characteristics and way of living, partly based on his own observations, occasionally even mentioning the taste of the bird. The engravings were made by Jan Christaan Sepp (1739-1811). After his death the last two volumes were finished by his son Jan Sepp (1778-1853), probably accompanied by the zoologist C.J. Temminck. The work was published in instalments of 5 or 6 and later 4 plates a y … [Click Below for Full Description]

De belydenis van een lichtmis. Bevattende een aantal voorvallen in de galante wereld zo in Nederland als elders; wonderlyke ontmoetingen met vrouwen van allerlei soort; veele potsen meest voorgevallen in de nacht, en achter de gordynen; zeldzaame karakters van beiderlei sexe, enz. enz. enz. Alles beschreeven ten vermaake van de kinderen dezer wereld door den belyder zelve.[The Netherlands, ca. 1770]. 8vo. With 4 engraved plates. Contemporary red half roan, gold-tooled spine. [2], 184 pp. Second copy located of the first and only edition of "Confessions of a libertine", an 18th-century Dutch picaresque, erotic novel in which the principal narrator Karel tells his fiancée Charlotte about his promiscuous past. The story starts with how his father met his mother, Julia, in the monastery where he grew up in. Julia was the 17/18-year-old daughter of the abbot, who was "taught" all about sexuality by her father at an early age. The abbot passed away soon after Karel's father left for the army, and was replaced by a 45-year old Franciscan monk who took turns with both mother and daughter. The situation became unsustainable because of the mother's jealousy of her daughter, causing Julia to flee to her lover; Karel was conceived the following night. The life of Karel's parents gives a glimpse of the story that follows, often taking place in a religious environment. The novel does not only detail the sexual encounters however, but also provides arguments for free morals, for instance pointing out that our ancestors just followed their nature, without being obstructed by any morals.
