Curiae Raetorum et Lindaviae, sumptibus Jacobi Otto / Chur und Lindau, Jakob Otto 1772 oder 1774?]. - 2 Teile (wohl von 3) in 1 Band (v. 2 Bänden). 4° (ca. 25.8 x 21.6 cm). 32 Bll., 261 (+1 leer) + 658 SS., 10 (+1 blanko) Bll. Es fehlt ev. das Titelblatt von Teil 2. Schöner neuerer bibliophiler HPerg.-Einband mit Pergamentecken und mont. Papierrückenschild, Deckelbezug in handgemachtem Marmorpapier. Erste Ausgabe. Druck auf Bütten (vollrandig/unbeschnitten). Vereinzelt leicht gebräunt und wenig stockfleckig. Etwas Alters- und Lagerungs-, kaum eigentliche Gebrauchsspuren, gest. Exlibris des 19. Jhs. a. Vorsatz. Gesamthaft gutes und sehr gepflegtes Exemplar (ursprünglich wohl nur interimsmässig gebunden), das Papier weitestgehend bemerkenswert sauber und fest. Inhalt: Das Werk setzt ein mit ?De Raetia et Raetis in genere?, ?De Statu Rel. Christ. in Raet. usque ad Sec. XVI.?, und ?De origine Reformationis? (pp. 1?67) und reicht bis ?Reformatio Ecclesiarum in Oengadina?, sowie (1541?1543) ?Episcopi Paulli mors. Pensionarii puniti. Blasii Dialogi?; Teil 2 beginnt mit den Jahren 1522?1540 (?Evangelium praedicatum in Italia, Valle Tellina, Clavenna? etc.) und führt dann bis zu ?Turbelae in Raetia? (1572?1577) und ?Reformatio Jurisdictionis Burgunianae? (i.e. Bergün und Filisur im Albulatal: ?Reformatio parochalis Ecclesiae Bergunii ac filialum, nec non Filisurii? und ?Mors Huldrici Campelli?) in den Jahren um und nach 1577 (der Bündner Reformator und Pfarrer Ulrich ?Duri? Campell starb 1582). Das Inhaltsverzeichnis für beide Teile steht übrigens unmittelbar vor Textbeginn des Liber Primus. ? ?Das Werk [.] enthält ausführliche Quelleneditionen und ist deshalb für die Bündner Geschichte unentbehrlich? (K. Marti-Weissenbach, in: HLS). ?? Petrus Dominicus Rosius à Porta (1732?1808) von Fetan im Unterengadin, aus alter Graubündner Familie des Gottehausbundes, in Chur, Brienz, Fetan und Schuls. Pfarrer und Dorfwirt in Scanfs (S-chanf), Präses der Synode 1778, Kirchenhistoriker (HBLS). ? Feller/Bonjour 2, 1962 beschreiben eindrücklich die enormen Schwierigkeiten und Widerstände, denen à Porta bei seinem Unterfangen und mit seinem Werk begegnete, und die ihm auch in den Weg gelegt wurden. ?Sein Trachten geht darauf aus, sein Werk auf die ersten Quellen zu gründen. Im Vorwort spricht er bitter von den Enttäuschungen, die ihm seine Quellensuche eintrug. [.] Wieviel vergebliche Gänge tat er: Er findet die Kirchenarchive leer, selbst dort, wo der Krieg von 1618?1638 nicht gewütet hat. Die Adligen halten ihm fast ohne Ausnahme die Familienarchive verschlossen. [.] Auch das Bundesarchiv ist ihm nicht gleich zugänglich [.].? (p. 579). In Zürich hingegen findet er Material, Verständnis, Unterstützung und tatkräftige Hilfe. ?Aber wie er zu Hause seine Schätze strahlend ausbreitet, stösst er auf Gleichgültigkeit: Wozu denn das Zeug nütze? [.] Das Werk steckt voll neuer unbekannter Tatsachen; ohne Porta würde heute manches verloren sein. [.] Sein Werk geht bis 1642. Der versprochene vierte Band [.] blieb aus, wohl weil die ersten geringen Absatz fanden. [.] Der Churer Verleger verkaufte 1827 den Stock von Exemplaren einem Glarner Schabzigerhändler.? (p. 579 f.). ? Erwähnung verdient auch das sehr positive Urteil von Oscar Vasella über die Historia Reformationis: ?Dieses Werk ist eines der besten seiner Art, die bestehen. Es ist mit einer ganz besonderen Sorgfalt verfasst. [. Nie] zuvor und auf lange Jahrzehnte hinaus nicht mehr wurde eine Darstellung der bündnerischen Reformation geschrieben, die in ähnlich umfassender Weise handschriftliche Materialien herangezogen hatte.? (Zit. in: J. A. v. Sprecher, Kulturgeschichte der Drei Bünde, neu bearb. v. R. Jenni, 1951, p. 678; vgl. auch die Originalausgabe, Geschichte der Republik der drei Bünde, Bd. 2, 1875, pp. 521 ff., wo v. Sprecher u.a. ebenfalls auf den fast skandalös geringen Absatz des Buches zu sprechen kommt. Die Veräusserung von allem, ?was von der Auflage in albo noch übrig war, also der grösste Theil?, an den Schabziegerhändler fand laut v. Sprecher im Jahr 1816 statt; loc. cit., erste Fussnote [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Lettre autographe (1804) / Enlèvement et mort du Duc d'Enghien (Talleyrand)

      - BIGNON Édouard (1771-1841). Diplomate, homme politique et ministre. Lettre autographe (minute), Cassel, 8 germinal an XII (29 mars 1804), à Charles-Maurice Talleyrand, ministre des Relations extérieures, 7 pages et demie in-folio (la fin étant dictée à un secrétaire), liées d’un ruban vert. Très intéressante lettre au sujet des réactions à l’enlèvement et l’exécution du Duc d’Enghien (21 mars) et sur la Cour de Hesse. « J’ai reçu la lettre que vous m’avez fait l’honneur de m’écrire ( ) par laquelle v. Ex. (votre excellence) me charge de réclamer de la Cour de Hesse l’adoption de mesures répressives contre les libelles qui paraissent en Allemagne et en particulier contre celui ayant pour titre Napoléon Bonaparte und das Französische Volk under seinem Consulat ( ) Le motif qui m’a fait insister sur ce point est le peu de confiance que mérite de notre part le Chef de la Police de Cassel dont les dispositions antifrançaises m’ont mis déjà plus d’une fois dans le cas de présenter contre lui des plaintes ( ) J’avais envoyé cette note à Mr. Le Bon de Waitz (le baron de Waitz était le ministre des Affaires étrangères et de la Guerre du Landgrave de Hesse-Cassel) et l’après-midi ce Me vient m’annoncer que S.A. El. (Electeur de Bade) saisissait avec empressement cette occasion de prouver les sentiments dont elle est animée en prenant les voies les plus efficaces pour satisfaire aux dessins du Gouvernement français. Il ajouta que non seulement la police userait de toute sa surveillance, mais que toutes les librairies allaient recevoir les injonctions convenables, de manière à prévenir et la circulation du libelle dans les États et même le transit sur son territoire ( ) J’ai fait sentir dans la même note la liaison criminelle qui existe entre la publication des écrits dénoncés et les complots formés contre les jours du 1er Consul. Dans ce qui se dit vulgairement sur l’expédition d’Ettenheim (l’enlèvement du Duc d’Enghien) je ne remarque point qu’on attache une grande importance au fait de l’entrée de nos troupes sur le territoire Germanique. Cependant on ne laisse pas que de relever quelques mots de la proclamation de l’Electeur de Bade d’après lesquels on cherche à mettre en doute si le consentement de ce Prince était en effet antérieur à l’expédition. On ne conçoit pas l’esprit d’aveuglement qui a retenu dans un tel voisinage de notre frontière et sur des points où la main vengeresse de la Justice française pouvait si facilement les atteindre des hommes qui avaient provoqué toute sa rigueur et toute son inflexibilité ( ) Ce ministre dans les visites qu’il m’a fait m’a parlé et de l’arrestation et du jugement du Duc d’Enghien avec une réserve éclairée, paraissant juger la sévérité malheureusement nécessaire à laquelle se voit condamné le Gouvernement français comme un de ces devoirs rigoureux que l’intérêt de l’Etat commande impérieusement mais que l’âme généreuse du 1er Consul ne peut remplir qu’à regret » Le duc d’Enghien, Louis-Antoine de Bourbon-Condé (1772-1804), avait été soupçonné par Napoléon d’être à l’origine d’un complot royaliste en compagnie du général Dumouriez. Dans la nuit du 15 au 16 mars 1804, le 1er Consul le fait enlever par une troupe de soldats menés par le général Ordener. L’enlèvement se déroule à Ettenheim, dans le margraviat de Bade ; ville dans laquelle le duc d’Enghien s’était réfugié pendant la Révolution. Convaincu de sa culpabilité, Napoléon traduit le duc d’Enghien devant un conseil de guerre qui le condamne à mort. Le duc d’Enghien est fusillé le 21 mars dans les fossés du château de Vincennes. Cette exécution provoque dans les cours européennes de nombreuses réactions hostiles à Napoléon. Sous la restauration, Louis XVIII fait du duc d’Enghien un des martyrs de la royauté.

      Londra: Roberto Bremner [without PN]. 1771. Folio. Half light tan leather with marbled boards, dark brown title label on spine in decorative compartments gilt.. [i] (title with small 18th century engraving depicting a walled city laid down to lower margin), [i] (blank, with engraving of Capella di S. Ignatio in nel Gesu laid down), [i]-[iv] (author's preface, in English), 42 (music, with headings in Italian), [ii] (blank) pp. Title and music engraved; text pages typeset. Also contains works by Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina (1525- 1594): Stabat Mater (sequence, à 8); Fratres ego enim accepi (motet, à 8); Popule meus (improperia, à 8; styled "Improperia. Petrus Aloysius Prenestinus"); Tommaso Baj (ca 1650-1714): Miserere (à 9); and Gregorio Allegri (1582-1652): Miserere (à 9). Title somewhat worn and soiled with professional repairs. Manuscript ornaments in ink above and below heading to first page of preface; text underlay in ink to bass part to p. 2 (Palestrina Stabat Mater); small ownership markings to upper outer corner of front pastedown. Lacking the engraved frontispiece of the Cappella Pontificcia. A very good copy overall, uncut. . First Editions of the pieces by Allegri and Baj. Later editions of the Palestrina pieces. Marvin D0018. BUC p. 143. CPM (3 copies in the U.K). Worldcat (6 copies in the U.S.). Allegri's Miserere was banned both from publication and from performance outside the Papal chapel. It is not known which source Burney used for his publication; his preface does not comment on the issue. No extant source in the Vatican confirms Burney's text. It is suspected that Burney used a copy W. A. Mozart had made when he heard the work in 1770 and wrote it down from memory (see Leopold Mozart's letter to his wife of April 14, 1770). It is confirmed that Burney met the Mozarts later that year.

        ACTS OF THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY, II GEO. III. WITH AN INDEX. [bound with:] ACTS OF THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY, 12 GEO. III. WITH AN INDEX

      Williamsburg: William Rind, 1771, 1772.. [2],8; [2],51pp. Folio. Half calf and marbled boards in antique style, leather label. Last leaf backed, minor foxing and toning. Very good. Two Virginia imprints comprising session laws of the General Assembly passed July 1771 and February 1772. Various acts provide relief for owners of tobacco damaged or burned in a warehouse fire, regulations for disciplining the militia, guidelines for "Trials and Outlawries of Slaves," and others, including numerous acts creating infrastructure. The second volume is the second issue, with the correct date in the imprint. Though mentioned on both titlepages, an Index was never printed. Of the first volume, Berg writes: "Once again public money had to be raised to repay planters for tobacco lost or burned at inspection warehouses in Henrico, Chesterfield, King George, and Northampton Counties. The treasurer of the colony was authorized to borrow up to 30,000 pounds to repay those individuals suffering losses." Regarding the second volume, again from Berg: "An act passed at this session to erect and maintain a lighthouse at Cape Henry displays a rare example of financial cooperation between the colonies of Maryland and Virginia. Both colonial assemblies approved this joint venture, which was to be financed from a duty placed on ships using the Chesapeake Bay." Rare, with Berg recording only nine copies of the first and eleven copies of the second. EVANS 12265, 12591. BERG 200, 208. ESTC W8520, W23642. OCLC 6325885, 63255965.

        Fundamenta testaceologiae.

      Uppsala, Edmann, 1771 - 4to (200 x 158 mm), pp [iv] 43 [1, blank], with folding engraved plate; a fine, unpressed copy in original marbled wrappers and paper label with title in ms, ex libris of the Bibliothek der Herzogl. Sternwarte (The Royal Observatory at Gotha) with deaccession stamp. £2550First edition of the doctoral thesis of Adolph Murray (1751-1803), pupil of Linnaeus, but of course written by Linnaeus and defended by Murray. The work is ostensibly an outline of the Linnaean taxonomic system for Mollusca, but it is also a work considered almost pornographic at the time. '[Linnaeus] begins his compendium for clams with one of the most remarkable paragraphs in the history of systematics. He regards the hinge between the two valves (cardo) as a defining character, and he then writes: Protuberantiae insigniores extra cardinem vocanturNates- or "the notable protuberances above the hinge are called buttocks." He then names all the adjacent parts for every prominent feature of sexual anatomy in human females - ut metaphora continuetur ("so that the metaphor may be continued"). Clams have a hymen (the flexible ligament connecting the two valves at top), vulva, labia, and pubes culminating in a mons veneris (various features at the top of the shell behind the umbos and, in front of the umbos - our modern term for Linnaeus's buttocks), an anus.Linnaeus's forced rationale for these terms can best be grasped from the picture he presents in illustration - for a species that he named Venus dione, no doubt as a fitting illustration for his terminology. The picture . shows the full crudity of Linnaeus's supposed joke - for his terms record a complex analogy (not overly far-fetched, one must admit, in purely visual appearance) between a clamshell viewed from the top and the standard sleazy pose of pornography . (Stephen Jay Gould, Leonardo's Mountain of Clams, p 79).Adolph Murray (1751-1803) became professor of anatomy and surgery at Uppsala University.Soulsby 2405; Cobres p 433 n 41

        I quattro libri dell' architettura

      [Venice: G. B. Pasquali,, 1771-80]. Folio (342 x 249 mm). Contemporary Italian vellum over pasteboards, red morocco spine label. Title and three section titles, each within engraved architectural border, printer's device on colophon. Numerous engraved illustrations some full or double-page. With the bookplate of Sir Richard Biddulph Martin, 1st Baronet (1838?-1916), and the ownership inscription of James Grote Vanderpool. Minor dampstaining to lower outer corner of last book, still an excellent copy. The superb facsimile of the original 1570 edition of Palladio, published by Consul Smith after years of preparation, with copperplate copies of the original woodcuts. It was a copy of this edition which Goethe was so delighted to acquire in Padua in 1786 that he made a special visit to Smith's grave in the Protestant cemetery on the Lido ?- "To him I owe my copy of Palladio and I offered up a grateful prayer at his unconsecrated grave" (Morrison, 53). Joseph Smith (1673/4??-1770) was appointed British consul in Venice in 1744, after which he was the Consul Smith whose name appears in every history of 18th-century British collecting and art patronage. As art patron, Smith's most fruitful association was with Canaletto, whose whole output he controlled from about 1729 to 1735. His book collecting resulted in the magnificent library (recorded in the Bibliotheca Smithiana, 1755) which eventually formed an important part of the King's Library, now the centrepiece of the new British Library. Early in the 1730s Smith set up as publisher with Giambattista Pasquali as his partner and printer. Their firm published a wide range of books and by the mid-century ranked as one of the three great Venetian publishers alongside Albrizzi and Zatta.

        George III, as Prince-elector of Hanover, sends instructions to his Privy Council concerning the "Scharnhorst Estate," owned by the family of Gerhard von Scharnhorst, considered the father of the modern Prussian Army

      [London], June 7, 1771. 7.75" x 12.5". "Letter Signed, ""George R,"" as King of Great Britain and Ireland and as Duke and Elector of Hanover, 1 page, 7.75"" x 12.5"", Court of St. James [London], May 31, 1771, in German to the Hanoverian Privy Council, concerning fees collected from the ""Scharnhorst Estate."" Usual folds, light soling at margins, else fine.George's letter reads in full (translated): ""Most Esteemed Councilors and dear faithful followers; This is in connection with the content of our commentary from the 21st of this month and the explanation by the property Councilor van der Decken contained therein. Subject addendum made in the year 1762 regarding revenues (expectances) from the Scharnhorst Estate never had been implemented. This decree is to confirm that the resolution made under item 15 st of said addendum that the matter shall remain undisturbed for the time being.""When George III ascended the English throne in 1760, he also became Duke and Prince-Elector of Brunswick-Lüneburg (Hanover). Unlike his two predecessors, English was George's first language, and he never visited Hanover. In 1814, George III would become King of Hanover as well. The ""Scharnhorst Estate"" were lands owned by Gerhard Johann David Waitz von Scharnhorst (1755-1813), who is considered the father of the modern Prussian Army. Scharnhorst's father, Ernst Wilhelm Scharnhorst (1723?"1782), had served in the Hanoverian service as a quartermaster, but seeing no prospect for further promotion due to his humble birth, resigned from the army. Although Ernst was fairly wealthy for a peasant, he lost much of his fortune in a ten-year lawsuit to recover lands controlled by his father-in-law in Borenau. Fortunately, young Gerhard had made an impression on Count Lippe-Bückeburg who became his patron, allowing him to enter the military school the count had founded at Wilhelmstein. When his patron died in 1777, von Scharnhorst entered the Hanoverian service where he distinguished himself as a lecturer on military subjects. In 1793 he saw his first action in the field, serving in the Netherlands at the behest of King George III, who was also Duke and prince-elector of Brunswick-Lüneburg (Hanover), where he distinguished himself. Unable to rise in the ranks due to his lack of nobility, he offered his services to King Frederick William III of Prussia, who gave him a patent of nobility. He soon rose to the rank of chief of the general staff and was instrumental in rebuilding the Prussian Army after their near destruction at Jena in 1806. Serving as chief of staff to Blücher, Scharnhorst was mortally wounded at Lützen in 1813. Scharnhorst's writings on military organization and structure greatly influenced the Prussian and modern German military. Several German warships have been named in his honor."

        Memoirs of Great Britain and Ireland, from the Dissolution of the last Parliament of Charles II until the Sea-battle off La Hogue

      W. Stahan and T. Cadell, London 1771 - Two volumes, quarto, with the erratum leaf in the second volume; a very good set in contemporary polished calf, with double spine labels in red and green morocco, extremities a little worn and hinges just starting although still firm. A handsome set in a contemporary binding of this history of Great Britain and Ireland in the seventeenth century. The work caused a mild sensation when it was published because of Dalrymple's unvarnished use of letters from the French ambassadors in England to their courts, as well as the correspondence of Charles II, James II, William, and Mary.Sir John Dalrymple (1726-1810), fourth baronet of Cranstoun was educated at the university of Edinburgh and Trinity College, Cambridge. In 1748 he was admitted to the Scottish bar, and succeeded to the baronetcy in 1771 on the death of his father Sir William Dalrymple. A reasonably prolific essayist, the Memoirs was his most significant work, with this second edition appearing the same year as the first. Illustrated by access to state papers in France and England, the work caused a stir, particularly because of its relevations regarding the personal motives behind the actions of many eminent statesmen. David Hume was not confident about the work's value as political history, but could not resist its insights into 'the biographical and anecdotal history of the times' (quoted in DNB).The second edition, a revised edition was published in 1790.

      London: Becket and De Hondt, 1771. Quarto pagination but trimmed to a square octavo size, as a result the pages cut close to the text but with no loss, complete with the dedication leaf; an unusual copy but in fact most attractive, bound in contemporary polished half calf over sprinkled paper boards, probably German, with the gilt cipher of George III to both boards; in polished quarter calf box with double labels. First edition of the earliest published account of Cook's first voyage to the Pacific: the rare first issue, with the leaf of dedication to 'The Right Honourable Lords of the Admiralty, and to Mr. Banks and Dr. Solander' inserted by the publisher to add authenticity.This intriguing copy has a remarkable provenance, with the arms of George III on both boards, but apparently released as a duplicate. The binding is most unusual as they have taken advantage of the small text block to trim the book down to a small square-octavo scale. The copy was later in the Victorian-era collection of Thomas Harman Brenchley (armorial bookplate) and more recently the Ingleton collection, who noted confirmed that the boards have the "royal cipher of King George III on both sides in gilt".This was the first of a series of so-called "surreptitious accounts" of Cook's various voyages to appear in print: the Admiralty found it practically impossible to enforce their ruling that no unofficial publications should pre-empt the official and lengthier accounts of the voyages, naturally much slower in the press. In this case, however, legal action was taken against the publisher for using an unauthorised dedication, forcing removal of the leaf during publication. 'It is accordingly of the greatest rarity, and copies of the book containing the dedication are far more valuable than those without it...' (Davidson). Published anonymously some two months after the return of Endeavour and nearly two years before Hawkesworth's official account, its author remains unknown, though the great Cook scholar Beaglehole has demonstrated that the American sailor James Magra is the likeliest candidate. If Magra was indeed the author, his illicit sale of his journal to the publishers might well have confirmed Cook's opinion of him: 'one of those gentlemen, frequently found on board Kings Ships, that can very well be spared, or to speake more planer good for nothing...'. He was a New Yorker and a loyalist.Whatever his skipper and the authorities may have thought of him, it was Magra who got the first description of the voyage into print - and incidentally the earliest printed account of the east coast of Australia, published even before acceptance of the name Botany Bay, here called Sting-ray Bay as Cook originally christened it. Bagnall, 3324; Beaglehole, I, pp. cclvi-cclxiv; Beddie, 693; Davidson, 'A Book Collector's Notes', pp. 53-4; Hill (2nd edn), 1066 (the second issue); Hocken, p. 9; Holmes, 3; Ingleton sale catalogue, no. 6351; O'Reilly-Reitman, 362.

        An Historical Collection of the several Voyages and Discoveries in the South Pacific Ocean

      London: Printed for the author, 1769-, 1771. Two volumes bound as one, quarto, with the 1769 dedication and the half titles, four folding maps and 12 plates (four folding); a fine copy rebound in full morocco, the Hobill Cole copy with his bookplate and with occasional inked marginalia in an early French hand. First edition, first issue: Dalrymple's crucial history of the early voyages to the Southern Ocean, with the title-page to the first volume dated 1769 and the dedication dated 1 April 1769 at the start and 14 May 1769 at the end.Dalrymple attempted to collect all the available materials pointing to the possible existence of a Great Southern Continent, the successful location of which would bring his country great commercial, strategic and scientific benefits. Publication was timely. Cook's First voyage had not conclusively established the existence or otherwise of Terra Australis and Cook himself recognised that another expedition was required to settle the question. In 1772 he embarked on his Second Voyage, taking with him Dalrymples's two volumes: 'they could never have had a more devoted reader. As a compendium of documents in a field which Dalrymple, among geographical scholars, had taken peculiarly to himself, they were invaluable' ( Beaglehole II, p. lxxxix).The work is one of the foundation books for any voyage library.. We know that Dalrymple prepared all of the plates for this work to be issued separately (in his preface he notes their individual prices). This copy has the additional plate of "Teepye lobsters" which does not appear in Dalrymple's list. Hill, 409; Kroepelien, 245; O'Reilly-Reitman, 97 (1770-1 edition).
