        A Journal of a Voyage to the South Seas , in His Majesty's Ship, the Endeavour

      London: Printed for Stanfield Parkinson, the Editor, 1773. Large quarto, with frontispiece portrait, a map and 26 plates; the usual offsetting from the plates, a handsome copy in a fine, full tree calf binding in period style. The first edition of the unofficial accounts of Cook's first voyage. Parkinson, the son of a Quaker brewer of Edinburgh, was apprenticed to a draper when his ability for drawing 'flowers, fruits and other objects of natural history' first attracted the attention of Sir Joseph Banks. Banks engaged him as botanical artist on Cook's first voyage, and he went on to produce an important series of magnificent botanical and natural history drawings, and was the first professional artist to set foot on Australian soil. He died at the end of the voyage, en route from Batavia to the Cape of Good Hope. Parkinson's is the most handsome of the unofficial accounts of Cook's first voyage; it contains extensive accounts of New Zealand and Australia, and has some of the earliest natural history observations on the region, including the first published use of the word kangaroo (as "kangooroo", p. 149). Parkinson himself was responsible for the original drawings for twenty-three of the twenty-seven plates here. His original artwork and these splendid engravings made from it represent one of the chief visual sources for Cook's first voyage, and one of the first views European observers had of such South Pacific scenes. Parkinson's journal of the voyage is plain and unaffected, and in the words of its editor 'its only ornament is truth, and its best recommendation characteristic of himself, its genuine simplicity'. Curiously, as the botanical drawings were retained by Banks, none of his botanical drawings appear in his own account, and not until recent years has the world at large learned of Parkinson's genius as a botanical artist.

        Voyage fait par ordre du roi en 1768 et 1769, à différentes parties du monde , pour éprouver en mer les horloges marines inventées par M. Ferdinand Berthoud

      Paris: Imprimerie Royale, 1773. Two volumes, quarto, with four maps, two plates, and five folding tables; in fine condition in contemporary French marbled calf, spines panelled in gilt between raised bands, double labels, marbled endpapers and edges; with the bookticket "Decrès" in each volume. The Minister of Marine's voyage: from the library of Napoleon's Minister of the Navy. First edition, surprisingly rare today (perhaps because the scientific nature of the voyage described limited the book's original audience): the early work of Louis XVI's Minister of Marine. This fine copy of an important voyage account belonged to another highly important naval figure, Admiral Denis Decrès, Napoleon's Minister for the Navy and the Colonies from 1801 to 1814 and thus the Minister directly responsible for Baudin's voyage, which departed shortly before he took office. Decrès was commemorated by Baudin in the naming of Ile Decrès, better known today as Kangaroo Island. Flinders and Baudin gave the island their chosen English and French names just four weeks apart, but because the Baudin voyage was published long before that of Flinders (thanks to the French capture and imprisonment of Flinders) it was the name of Ile Decrès that first gained currency. Anse Decrès (present-day Decres Bay) near Ceduna, north-west of modern Adelaide, was also named by Baudin in his honour. Count Charles Pierre Claret de Fleurieu (1738-1810) was one of the most important figures in the history of French exploration, in many ways the equivalent of Alexander Dalrymple, heavily involved with the cartography and science of voyages during his era, and closely associated with the actual planning and publication of many of them. The voyage described here in his first of many books was the single voyage undertaken by him personally. Its modern rarity must partly have to do with its partly technical nature. No racy account, it tells the story of the voyage of the Isis under his command in 1768 to the Caribbean coast and New York, chiefly from the point of view of its scientific aims, which were significant: this was the major French participation in the race to establish Longitude and the means of gauging it at sea. Fleurieu's specific purpose was to test the marine clock built by the pioneering Swiss, later French, instrument maker Ferdinand Berthoud, the first such French attempt to solve the scientific puzzle pre-occupying Europe at the time. Scientific progress made by him and during his administration enabled the commissioning of the first of the French grands voyages of the late eighteenth century, those of La Pérouse and d'Entrecasteaux. Fleurieu too was honoured by the Baudin expedition in their naming of the Fleurieu Peninsula south of Adelaide and Fleurieu Island in northwest Tasmania. Louis XVI's Minister of the Navy from 1790, he was several times imprisoned during the Terror, surviving to re-join the administration after the fall of Robespierre. Subsequently he was several times again appointed Minister of the Navy, was a Governor of both the Tuileries and the Louvre, and was personally commissioned by Napoleon to establish the causes of the French defeat at Trafalgar. The competition between Berthoud and Le Roy to develop a viable marine chronometer in France - at the same time as Harrison was working in England - is described by Catherine Cardinal in "Ferdinand Berthoud and Pierre Le Roy: Judgement in the Twentieth Century of a Quarrel Dating from the Eighteenth Century" (in The Quest for Longitude, ed. W.J.H. Andrews, 1996).

      Rome: Congregatio de Propaganda Fide, 1773 -, 1791. Five works in two volumes, octavo, with three folding tables; in fine condition in contemporary quarter blue calf. A very attractive collection of five of the language studies and alphabets printed for the Congregatio de Propaganda Fide in Rome, which as well as fulfilling their evangelical function for the church also played an important role in the study and dissemination of non-Western languages. Each of the five works is a description of the components of a language and a specimen of typefaces to illustrate the expertise of the type foundry and their rich collections of characters. Some translations into the languages, usually religious in nature for missionary and teaching purposes, typically appear in the volumes. The contents are as follows: 1. Alphabetum Tangutanum sive Tibetanum, 1773. The rare original edition of this book on the Tibetan language and alphabet, composed by the missionary Cassianus (da Macerata) Beligatti (1708-1791) who had spent 18 years in Tibet. It is partly based on the work by Georgi on the Tangut alphabet which first appeared in 1759. It was edited by the Italian philologist Giovanni Cristofano Amaduzzi (1740-1792), who as director of the congregation supervised the publication of such grammars of Oriental languages at the printing press of the Propaganda Fide in Rome. The series comprised, among others, grammars of Burmese, Hindustani, Armenian, Syriac, Arabic, Hebrew, Ethiopic (both Ge'ez and Amharic), Bulgarian etc. 2. Alphabetum Barmanorum seu Regni Avensis. Editio altera emendatior, 1787. Second edition of the first book printed in the Burmese language. 3.

A very good sturdy copy. "Edward Ives (1719–1786), was a naval surgeon and traveller From 1753 to 1757 he was surgeon of the Kent, bearing the flag of Vice-Admiral Charles Watson as commander-in-chief in the East Indies. The squadron sailed via the Cape of Good Hope and Madagascar to India, where they visited the chief English settlements and major cities, Ives attending the company hospitals and staff in each place. On the admiral's death in August 1757, Ives resigned his appointment, and travelled home overland from Basrah, through Baghdad, Mosul, and Aleppo, thence by Cyprus, to Leghorn and Venice, and home through Germany and the Netherlands, arriving in England in March 1759. A Voyage from England to India described his journey to India, his experiences there, and his overland route home. Ives's presence at many of the events described and his close relationship with Vice-Admiral Watson give his historical narrative an unusual importance, and his accounts of the manners and customs of the inhabitants, of the diseases and medical practices, of the natural history, and of the products of the countries he visited, some then little known to Europeans, are those of an acute and, for his time, relatively enlightened observer.

        De l'homme, de ses facultes intellectuelles et de son education (On Man, His Intellectual Faculties and his Education).

      Chez la Société Typographique, Londres 1773 - in two volumes: Volume 1: 1 blank leaf + half title + TP + [v]-xliii + [1]-399 + 1 blank leaf; Volume 2: 1 blank leaf + half title + TP + [1]-495 + 1 blank leaf; small Octavo. First Edition, Third Printing. (Smith H.4; Tchermerzine, Volume VI, p. 192.)Helvetius' Posthumous Restatement of the Ideas in De l'espritOne of four editions from the year of publication. Smith notes that the true first edition would be the 639/760 page volumes (rather than the two 326/412 and the 399/495 volumes that were also published in 1773) because the 639/760 has a printed errata page with errors that have been corrected in all three of the later printings (Smith, Bibliography, p. 298)Having been forces to recant many of the idea put forth in De l'esprit, Helvetius reaffirmed these ideas even more strongly in this posthumously published work. The focus here is primarily on education where Helvetius attempts to show ?? in opposition to Rousseau ?? that formal instruction and particularly the system of reward and punishment used in such instruction are the supreme factors in the development of the intellect; or, in the terms of his philosophy, in the development of the passions which produce the intellect. He concludes by declaring that all types of intellect, even genius, may be artificially created. By its very exaggeration of the importance of social factors in education, Helvetius' work was a valuable corrective to the influence of Rousseau. Contemporary full leather with recent green and red lettering pieces with gilt lettering on spine. This is a clean, tight and remarkably well preserved set of this important work by Helvetius.

        THE PLACID MAN: OR, MEMOIRS OF SIR CHARLES BEVILLE

      London, J. Dodsley, 1773.. London, J. Dodsley, 1773.. 2 volumes, complete set, SECOND EDITION WITH ADDITIONS 1773. 12mo, approximately 175 x 100 mm, 6¾ x 4 inches, woodcut tailpieces, pages: xii, 223, (1); viii, 247, (1), bound in full contemporary calf, gilt rules to spines, gilt volume numbers and gilt lettered title labels, gilt edges to covers. Spines darkened, hinges starting to crack at top and bottom, covers holding firmly, corners just slightly rubbed, 3 slight scrapes to lower cover of Volume II, armorial bookplate inside upper covers, small closed tear to edge of front endpaper in Volume II, a couple of small pale spots to 1 margin, otherwise contents clean, bindings tight and firm. A good set of a rare early novel. The Rev. Charles Jenner (bap. 1736, d. 1774), educated at Cambridge was known as a poet and writer. He won the Seatonian prize at Cambridge for poems on sacred subjects in 1767 and 1768, but also turned his attention to prose narrative at about this time with Letters from Altamont (1767) and Letters from Lothario (1769). The Placid Man, first published in 1770, is his only full length novel "and in this he departed from the epistolary technique and followed Henry Fielding, to whom he clearly states his allegiance early on in the proceedings, in telling his story from the viewpoint of an omniscient narrator who not only recounts the incidents but also takes time to air his views on a variety of related subjects, especially in the introductory chapter to each book of the novel... (It) takes much from the conventions of contemporary sentimental fiction, in both form and content. Interpolated narratives turn up at irregular intervals, causing one contemporary critic to complain that ‘the digressions are too numerous’, although he conceded that ‘many of them are instructive and entertaining’ (ODNB).

        eigenhändiger Brief mit Unterschrift, 3 S., Lindenau 17.09.1833

      . 4°, 3 Seiten, Papier etwas gebräunt. Heinroth (1773-1843), bekannt als erster Lehrstuhlinhaber für Psychiatrie ("Psychische Heilkunde") überhaupt, war zur Zeit der Abfassung deses Briefes zwar Professor der Medizinischen Fakultät, aber immer wieder auch in Geldnot. Er hatte im Februar 1833 beim Rat der Stadt um eine feste Anstellung im St. Georgenhaus gebeten, was aber ebenso abgelehnt wurde wie eine reguläre Gehaltserhöhung (Steinberg/Angermeyer, 200 Jahre Psychiatrie in Leipzig, p. 26). Hier ein bewegender Brief in wohl äußerster Geldnot. Heinroth weigert sich, einen Ring, den er schon einmal für 200 Taler ins Pfandhaus gegeben hatte, für 150 Taler zu verkaufen, sieht aber andererseits keine Möglichkeit, seine Schulden bei dem Adressaten zu bezahlen: "... Aber wie nun? Herr Hilliger verlangt zu Ende dieses Monats die Rückzahlung des Capitals? Dieses zu leisten ist mir schlechterdings unmöglich ...". - Sehr persönliches Dokument aus der Biographie des ersten Hochschullehrers der Psychiatrie weltweit

        Sophiens Reise von Memel nach Sachsen

      . Schwarze Feder und Sepia-Tuschpinsel auf Bütten, je 115 x 55 mm. Nach seiner Ausbildung in Berlin bei Bernhard Rode und bei Adam Friedrich Oeser in Leipzig und Dresden kehrte Jakob Wilhelm Mechau 1773 für drei Jahre in seine Heimatstadt Leipzig zurück. Aus eben dieser Zeit stammt unsere kleine Serie von Illustrationen zu Johann Timotheus Hermes' "Sophiens Reise von Memel nach Sachsen". Neben seinen berühmten Landschaftsbildern zwischen Claude Lorrain und Jakob Philipp Hackert schuf Mechau mehrfach Illustrationen, von denen sich mehrere in der Wiener Albertina befinden. Die Arbeiten bestechen neben der virtuos komponierten Szenerie, die das kleine, schwierige Format vergessen läßt, besonders durch die Einbettung der Figuren in einen eigenständigen und definierten Raum. Das häufig bühnenbildhafte und summarische solcher Textkupfer weicht bei Mechau einer narrativen Stringenz, die den Bildraum einbezieht und die Figuren in ihm verankert. Der Briefroman erzählt in klassischer englischer Manier die Geschichte der jungen Waisen Sophie, die als Dank für die Aufnahme bei ihrer Gönnerin, der Witwe E. aus Memel, einige Briefe an deren leibliche Tochter überbringen möchte. All dies in Begleitung ihres lange verschollen geglaubten Bruders, der als russischer Offizier Schutz auf den seit dem Siebenjährigen Krieg unsicheren Straßen verspricht. Wie nicht anders zu erwarten entwickelt sich der Roman äußerst verwickelt. Ein immer wieder thematisierter Kern des Romans ist der Gegensatz zwischen Adel und Bürgertum und das Problem der Reflektion. Sophies intensive Auseinandersetzung mit ihren eigenen Gefühlen läßt sie oft den richtigen Weg verkennen und gipfelt in einer schwerwiegenden Unentschlossenheit. Schlußendlich ist dies auch der Grund, aus dem Sophie es in fünf Bänden lediglich von Memel bis Danzig schafft, was einer Strecke von etwa dreihundert Kilometer entspricht. Sophies "reflektierende Sprödigkeit", die sich in der Unsicherheit über die richtige Wahl der beiden Männer, die ihr in dem Roman begegnen, manifestiert, versteht Hermes als das "Unnatürliche". Gerade die Rückführung zur "Natürlichkeit" ist es, die er als Ideal für die 70er Jahre des 18. Jahrhunderts empfindet. Die übermäßige Reflektiertheit Sophies' ist es, die ihr die natürlichen Regungen und Empfindungen verwehrt. Diese Zögerlichkeit, die in Hermes' Charakter der Sophie bereits angelegt ist, mündet schließlich in dem Subjektivismus eines Werthers mit all seinen Folgen.
