      Hamburg: Bohn, 1773. Goedeke IV/1, 475, 3. - "Erste Gesamtausgabe mit dem aus dem Nachlaß herausgegebenen, unvollendet gebliebenen zweiten Teil. Epochales Werk, das durch die Entwicklung der Verhaltensforschung nachträglich in den Rang eines Klassikers erhoben wurde. - Nach dem herrschenden, unter dem Dogma der Aufklärungsphilosophie stehenden Vorurteil der Zeit galten die Instinkte als ursprünglich erworbene und dann durch Übung eingeschliffene Fertigkeiten. Diese Auffassung fand ihren Gegner in dem genauen Beobachter und scharfsinnigen Denker Reimarus, der am Beutefang der Spinnen und des Ameisenlöwen zeigte, daß die Tiere die geschicktesten und sichersten Kunstfertigkeiten mit auf die Welt bringen ... Reimarus befaßte sich nur entfernt mit der menschlichen Psychologie. Sein Problem bestand in der Beschreibung und Erklärung des Instinktverhaltens der Tiere. Ihm kommt das große Verdienst zu, als erster in einer derartigen Erörterung den Versuch gemacht zu haben, das gesamte Spektrum des Tierverhaltens einschließlich der Insekten, Reptilien, Vögel und Säugetiere miteinzubeziehen ... (Balmer, Psychologie II,166 u. 61 f)." - Schönes Exemplar von sehr guter Gesamterhaltung..

Mit dem Erstdruck der grossen, mehrfach gefalteten Karte der Magellanstrasse, die in der ersten Ausgabe noch nicht vorlag. In der vorliegenden zweiten Ausgabe ist jeder Band neu paginiert und nicht, wie in der ersten Auflage, durchlaufend gezählt. - Hawkesworth stellte die Reise von Cook im zweiten und dritten Band seines Werkes in den Mittelpunkt seiner Publikation, die er mit der Erzählung der Reisen von Byron, Willis und Carteret im ersten Band einführte. - Die erste Reise, von der Akademie der Wissenschaft organisiert, sollte den Venusdurchgang auf der südlichen Halbkugel beobachten. Gleichzeitig war das Bestreben der britischen Admiralität aber auch, die bisher nicht erforschten Gebiete Südamerikas und südlich von Ostasien zu erkunden. Dabei entdeckte Cook die Ostküste von Australien, das er New South Wales nannte und Neu Zealand. - Die zweite Reise, die einzige von James Cook selbst beschriebene, sollte den Nachweis eines vermuteten Südkontinents erbringen. Cook kam bei seiner zweiten Reise auf der südlichsten Position bis auf wenige Kilometer an das Packeis der Antarktis heran und entdeckte viele Inseln Ozeaniens. Mit Hilfe der von John Harrison entwickelten Schiffsuhr versuchte Cook, die Funktion des Längegrades zu bestimmen. Johann Reinhold Forster und sein Sohn Georg wirkten auf dieser Reise als wissenschaftliche Berichterstatter mit. - Die dritte Reise, in deren Verlauf Cook auf Hawaii durch Eingeborene getötet wurde, war der Suche nach der berühmten Nordwestpassage zwischen Amerika und Asien gewidmet. Dabei entdeckte er Hawaii und beschrieb als erster die Westküste Nordamerikas nördlich von Kalifornien. Verfasst wurde der Bericht von James King, der nach dem Tode Cooks das Kommando übernommen hatte. - Die Tafeln zur dritten Reise wurden von Strahan in einem separaten Folioband zusammengefasst. Beim vorliegenden Atlasband wurden zudem ein wesentlicher Teil der Tafeln der zweiten Reise zusätzlich beigegeben sowie die seltene, erst 1785 erschienene Tafel mit der Darstellung von Cooks Tode. Die Tafeln zur zweiten Reise jeweils mit dem Privileg, jedoch, gegenüber den Tafeln im Buch ohne Numerierung in der Platte. Die am Ende des Bandes eingebundene, nicht bezeichnete Tafel scheint nach nach einer Vorlage von John Webber entstanden zu sein. Wahrscheinlich wurde die Tafel aus Qualitätsgründen nicht in die Sammlung mit aufgenommen und ist deshalb weder bezeichnet noch signiert. Die Illustrationen zur ersten Reise wurden nach verschiedenen Vorlagen gestochen. Die zweite Reise wurde hauptsächlich von William Hodges und die dritte Reise vom Berner Johann Wäber, bzw. John Webber illustriert. - Aus dem Besitz von William Tennon, Aston Hall (1. und 2. Reise) und von W. Wharton, mit gestochenen Exlibris auf dem Innendeckel und dem fliegenden Vorsatz. - Wenige Textseiten und einige Tafeln mit kleinen Randeinrissen. Durchgehend leicht gebräunt.

The first voyage in the second edition done the same year as the first. With the first printing of the huge manifold folded map of the Straits of Magellan which did not yet exist in the first edition. In this second edition, the pagination starts anew in each volume and is not continuous like in the first edition - Hawkesworth starts his work with the account of Byrons, Willis and Carterets travels and put Cook's voyages of the second and third volume as centrepiece of his publication, - The first voyage, organised by the Academy of Natural History, was designed to observe the transit of Venus from the southern hemisphere. The British admiralty also asked him to chart the yet unknown parts of South America and the regions south of East India, thus discovering the east coast of Australia, which he named New South Wales and New Zealand. The second voyage is the only one James Cook himself wrote. Its objective was to prove the existence of a southern continent. During this voyage he came so close to the pack-ice of the Antarctic and discovered many southern Pacific islands. Using a watch invented by John Harrison, Cook tried to calculate the ships longitude. Johann Reinhold Forster and his son Georg were on this voyage as scientific correspondents. The aim of the third voyage, during which Cook was murdered by the natives on Hawaii, was to discover the Northwest Passage between Asia and America. He then discovered Hawaii and was the first to describe the western coast of North America north of California. The text was written by James King, who took over the commands after Cook's death. The plates of the third voyage were combined by Strahan in a separate folio volume. In the present atlas volume most of the plates of the second voyage were added as well as the rarest plate, published only in 1785, illustrating Cook's death. The plates of the second voyage with the privilege, but on the contrary of the plates in the book volumes are unnumbered. The last incorporated plate is not described and seems to have been done after a draft by John Webber. Probably not part of the collection because of its quality and therefore not described nor signed. The illustrations of the first voyage were done after drafts of different authors. The second voyage was illustrated essentially by William Hodges and the third voyage by the bernese artist Johann Wäber, respectively John Webber. From the property of William Tennon, Aston Hall (1st and 2nd. voyage) and from W. Wharton, with engraved Exlibris on the inside cover and the preliminary leaf. Some pages of the text and some plates with small tears on the edges. Lightly browned. Preliminary leaves with shadows of glue. Edges of the bindings lightly worn. The third voyage and atlas volumes were rebacked

      Stuttgart, Johann Benedict Mezger, 1773.. Zehende verbesserte Auflage [10., verb. Aufl.] Zwei Teile in einem Band. 8°. Frontispiz, Titelbl., 2 Bll., 496 S., 5 Bll. Mit einigen Vignetten. Neues strukturiertes Leinen, Vollgelbschnitt. Seiten braun- und fingerfleckig, besonders die Registerblätter.; 10. Gehört zu den erfolgreichsten deutschen Gartenbüchern überhaupt. Der Verfasser war Pfarrer in Stettten im Remstal. Das hübsche Frontispiz zeigt einen idealisierten Garten mit tätigen Gärtnern. Aus der Vorrede: Das Müllerische Gartenbuch hat schon viele Jahre her das Glück gehabt, den Beyfall der Liebhaber der Gärtnerey zu erhalten, [...]. Inzwischen hat man sich zum Vortheil der Leser nicht entbrechen können, das, was in den verschiedenen vorigen Ausgaben von andern Männern zu dem ersten Aufsaz des Verfassers in besonderen Abschnitten hinzugefügt worden ist, in besondern Abschnitten hinzugefügt worden ist, in einen ununterbrochenen Vortrag zu bringen, wodurch nicht nur manche unnöthige Wiederholungen hinweggeräumt, sondern auch viele Widersprüche vermieden worden. Mit gutem Vorbedacht hat man auch bey den Küchenpflanzen die Beschreibungen, wie sie gekocht werden sollen, ausgelassen, da sie einen theils in einem Gartenbuch überflüßig theils aber die Ursachen, welche den ersten Verfasser bewogen haben, sie einzurüken, in den heutigen Zeiten nicht mehr vorhanden sind. Dagegen hat man sich Mühe gegeben, bey vielen Pflanzen eine ausführlichere Nachricht von Pflanzungsart zu ertheilen, [...]. Überdieses findet sich in dieser neuen Ausgabe eine beträchtliche Anzahl Gewächse, wovon in den vorigen nichts gedacht worden, und welche doch unsern Gärten eine grosse Zierde geben. Da die ungewisse Künsteleyen in der Gärtnerey noch immer ihre Anhänger haben: so hat man um dieser willen hie und da etwas stehen lassen, das freylich seinen Grund nur in einer alten Sage oder in der Einbildung hat, [...].

Which will begin to be sold very cheap, on Saturday June 5, by Martin Booth and John Berry, Booksellers, At their Warehouse in the Angel-Yard, Market-Place, Norwich, and continue on Sale only Two Months.

      Norwich? 1773 - [ii],177,[1]pp., cont. ownership signature [Mr Wm. Durant?] in ink at head of title page, some old light damp-staining and browning running through the text, but unobtrusive, tipped-in is a slip with some related jottings in ink, expertly rebound in half calf in a contemporary style, marbled boards, red morocco label lettered in gilt, listing some 4895 items with printed prices. Thomas Martin (1697-1771), born at Thetford in the Free School House of St. Mary's parish. Martin was largely self-taught, for many years he was the only pupil at the Thetford Free School and left to his own devices, where he took an early interest in antiquities. When Peter Le Neve visited Thetford in 1710, he sought a guide to the many antiquities of the town, he was told that no-one knew more than thirteen-year old Master Martin and here began a close friendship which was to have a far-reaching affect on the direction of Norfolk historiography for the remainder of the century. In 1723 Martin left Thetford and settled in Palgrave, Suffolk. When Peter Le Neve died in 1729, Martin, having been appointed one of the executors, set about helping Le Neve's young widow in sorting the enormous library that had been assemble by her husband. The collection was particularly strong in Norfolk and Suffolk material, Richard Gough describing the Norfolk portion as "the greatest fund of antiquities for his native county that ever was collected for any single one in the kingdom". It was during this time that their relationship grew and they eventually married in January 1732, soon afterwards the couple moved with the collection to Martin's home in Palgrave. His continuing obsession with collecting printed books, manuscripts historical antiquities of all kinds, eventually took their toll on his fortune. By 1769 his financial embarrassments obliged him to dispose of his coin collections and many of his books, enriched with manuscript notes, to Thomas Payne. On his death in 1771, John Worth, a local chemist from Diss, purchased the remaining library with all other collections for 660 pounds, a fraction of their true value. The printed books were immediately sold to Booth & Berry of Norwich for £330; they in turn then produced this fixed price catalogue, which marked up to more than £2,000. The catalogue covers all the learned subjects, with an emphasis on British history. It also contains a substantial numbers of books in French, Spanish, Italian, Latin, Greek, Saxon, Arabic and Hebrew. There is section described as "Black letter books" which includes British and European incunabula, with the works of de Worde and Pynson's presses well represented. Thomas Martin had supplied information from these books for both Joseph Ames and William Herbert for respective their editions of the 'Typographical Antiquities'. ESTC locates just 3 copies (L; O; SCmH). [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        La Corneide. Poema eroi - comico del Dottore Cornografo colle annotazioni di Cornelio Tacito il Moderno.

      In Cornicopoli (Livorno), 1773 - In-8° (222x145mm), pp. 271, cartonatura decorata novecentesca con titolo in oro su tassello in pelle rossa al dorso. Frontespizio figurato inciso su rame e 6 tavv. calcografiche f.t., una in principio di ciascun canto, il tutto disegnato e inciso da D. Aspar. Restauri alle cerniere; fioriture diffuse, ma esemplare in barbe. Edizione originale, stampata in forma pseudonima e con l'indicazione di stampa "per Luca Cornigerio all'insegna del Capricorno", di questo lunghissimo poema licenzioso in 71 canti in ottave di Giovanni De Gamerra incentrato sui tradimenti coniugali e i mariti sfortunati nel corso dei secoli, a cominciare da Adamo. Il poema piacque a Voltaire per "les jolis vers et la parfaite connaissance de l'antiquité et des moeurs modernes" e a Ranieri Calzabigi, che la paragonò all'"Hudibras" del Butler prediligendola ai capolavori della poesia eroicomica italiana, la "Secchia Rapita" e il "Ricciardetto". Giovanni De Gamerra (Livorno, 1743-Vicenza, 1803), avventuriero, poeta e librettista, fu in gioventù abate ma lasciò la tonaca per entrare nell'esercito austriaco come sottotenente. Poeta di corte a Vienna nel 1775 grazie all'intercessione di Metastasio, si recò nel 1786 a Napoli per un piano di riforma teatrale, ma ne fu cacciato da Ferdinando IV l'anno seguente perché sospetto di idee rivoluzionarie.

      printed for John and Francis Rivington, William Johnston, Thomas Longman and Thomas Cadell, London 1773 - First and only edition, 4to, pp. [8], viii, 57, [1], plus unpaginated lexicon in double column; full contemporary calf, old red morocco "Quebec Library" label on upper cover; neatly rebacked, old spine laid down with red morocco label; a very good, firm copy. A "hack writer" who possessed a "strong love of notoriety, [and] a jealous and perverse temper," Kenrick (?1725-1779) "was often drunk and violent. He became the enemy of every decent and successful person, and so notorious as a libeler that few condescended to answer him. His vanity lead him to fancy himself equal to any task without serious study. In his later years Kenrick seldom wrote without a bottle of brandy at his elbow. Though a superlative scoundrel, he was clever, and especially proud of the rapidity of his writing; even his more serious works seldom occupied him for more than two days" (see DNB for a lively account of this literary curmudgeon). Among those most frequently attacked and offended were Johnson and Boswell, Garrick, Goldsmith, Fielding, and, predictably, other famous men, who, by association would give Kendrick a name. For all his attacks on Johnson (Kenrick was violently critical of Johnson's edition of Shakespeare and his dictionary) he seems to have made good use of Johnson's lexicographic skills. A spot check of entries shows Kenrick's lexicon to be a word-for-word transcription from that of Johnson. Alston V, 283; Kennedy 6276.

Jones, poet and literary editor, is remembered as compiler of the anthology Gorchestion beirdd Cymru (1773), elegantly printed by Stafford Prys of Shrewsbury. The opening pages contain a handful of pieces attributed to three early Welsh poets, Aneirin, Taliesin, and Llywarch Hen, but the volume is primarily dedicated to the works of the cywyddwyr, whose compositions between c.1350 and 1550 represent a golden era in the history of Welsh literature. Renaissance scholars of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, and their successors in the eighteenth, had long sought to publish this material which, having been assiduously collected by generations of copyists, remained out of sight in private libraries. The Gorchestion, a rare success, made public for the first time the works of sixteen cywyddwyr, among whom Dafydd ap Gwilym is given pre-eminence, 27 of the 103 pieces being in his name. See ODNB.

        An Account of the Voyages undertaken by the order of his Present Majesty for Making Discoveries in the Southern Hemisphere, and, successively performed by Commodore Byron, Captain Wallis, Captain Carteret, and Captain Cook, In the Dolphin, the Swallow, and the Endeavour: Drawn up from the Journals which were kept by the several Commanders, and from the Papers of Joseph Bankes, Esq.

      London: Printed for A. Strahan, and T. Cadell, 1773 - 3 volumes, quarto (294 × 228 mm). Contemporary sprinkled calf, red morocco labels, spines direct-numbered gilt, raised bands. Joints partly cracked but still very firm, spine ends a little chipped and corners rubbed, occasional light spotting and the odd stain, but a very good, wide-margined and crisp copy. 52 maps, charts and plates in all, 41 of them folding. First edition of the official account of Cook's first voyage, together with previous exploratory expeditions under Byron, Carteret and Wallis, compiled by John Hawkesworth. The primary purpose of Cook's voyage in Endeavour was the observation of the transit of Venus from Tahiti, and then to continue the enterprise of geographical investigation begun by Byron. This was to result in the discovery of the Society Islands, the circumnavigation of New Zealand, and the charting of the eastern coast of Australia. "Hawkesworth , an eminent London author, was chosen by Lord Sandwich and commissioned by the Admiralty to prepare these narratives for publication [He] was expected to add polish to the rough narratives of sea men, and to present the accounts in a style befitting the status of the voyages as official government expeditions, intended to embellish England's prestige as a maritime power." Although the book was a huge success, fast becoming a best-seller, it was disastrous for its editor: "He was publicly attacked on three different counts: by the captains for tampering with the texts of their journals, by prudish readers for reprinting descriptions of the sexual freedoms of the South Sea islanders, and by devout churchmen for impiety in the general introduction to the work, in which Hawkesworth had rashly challenged the doctrine of providential intervention. He was devastated by this critical barrage, and it was thought to be the main cause of his death. The rumour recorded by Malone that he killed himself with an overdose of opium is uncorroborated, but Fanny Burney's conviction that his health was destroyed by the vilification he suffered seems well founded" (ODNB).

        Carl Magnus Craelius (1773-1842), sångare och sångpedagog, Jenny Linds första sånglärare.

      Runt miniatyrporträtt. Gouache. Osignerad. 8 x 7 cm. Gammal påskrift a tergo: "Hofsångaren C. M. Crælius / född d. 1773. / död d. 1842". Färgen längs kanterna ngt nött och påverkad av fukt.. Carl Magnus Craelius föddes på Kosta i Småland och var son till direktören vid glasbruket, hovkamreraren Frans Kristian Craelius. Carl Magnus studerade i Uppsala och försökte sig först på en karriär som ämbetsman vid Storamiralsämbetet och Kammarrevisionen. Han ledsnade dock snabbt på det administrativa rutinarbetet och skall ha varit frånvarande mest hela tiden. När han till slut varnades för försumlighet bestämde han sig för att satsa helhjärtat på musiken istället.<p>Craelius skall ha haft en härlig tenorstämma och var sångare vid Operan 1795-1806. Han tolkade sällan dramatiska roller, men var framgångsrik som konsertsångare med koloraturarior ur italienska operor. Bland annat gjorde han succé med konserter i Leipzig och Berlin under sina utrikes resor 1802-1809. Han var utsänd med stipendium från Operakassan till Tyskland och Italien, dels för sin egen utbildning, dels för att skaffa italienska förmågor till operan. Det senare gjorde han också, men när de engagerade sångarna kom till Stockholm, däribland kastratsångaren Sebastiani, kunde de inte göra sig gällande eftersom operan indrogs 1806-1809 under den svenska kulturens så kallade »järnår» i början av 1800-talet.<p>Efter hemkomsten övergick Craelius alltmer till att undervisa i sång, och det var på det området han fick sin största betydelse. Han hade bland andra Jenny Lind - nio år gammal - som elev. Hon menade senare att han var den förste, som gav henne rådet att bli operasångerska. Under sin makalösa karriär fortsatte hon att brevväxla med paret Craelius i Stockholm.<p>Craelius översatte även flera operalibretti och gav ut några solosånger, Quattro pezzetti di canto, omkring 1825. Han invaldes som ledamot av Kungliga Musikaliska Akademien 1822. Hans första hustru, Johanna Fredrika Fredrisen, var dotter till hertig Fredrik Adolf och skådespelerskan Jeanette Fredrique Löf. Hans andra hustru Caterina Silvia Gertrude Calderari var italienska, och med henne fick han fyra barn.<p>Detta mycket fina porträtt var inte känt för redaktionen av Svenskt biografiskt lexikon, men hade utan tvekan blivit en bättre illustration till artikeln om Craelius än den enkla teckning av Röhl som användes.

        SOME ADDITIONAL OBSERVATIONS ON THE METHOD OF PRESERVING SEEDS FROM FOREIGN PARTS, FOR THE BENEFIT OF OUR AMERICAN COLONIES. WITH AN ACCOUNT OF THE GARDEN AT ST. VINCENT, UNDER THE CARE OF GEORGE YOUNG

      London: W. Bowyer and J. Nichols, 1773.. 15pp. Quarto. Three-quarter calf in antique style, contemporary marbled boards. Slight toning, a near fine copy. John Ellis (1710-1776) was one of the most diligent "seed- men" at work during the Second Great Age of Exploration, overseeing the collecting of seeds and young plants from all parts of the world and importing them to Europe. In this,one of his rarest works, he discusses methods for preserving seeds gathered in North America, and shipping plants from the East Indies to the Caribbean, where he was convinced the monoculture of sugar cane could be supplanted by other tropical products. To demonstrate this, he gives a brief account of some of the tropical products being grown at George Young&#39;s new botanical garden on the island of St. Vincent, in the Grenadines, where East Indian spices such as nutmeg and coriander were being grown next to tea, almonds, and olives. The St. Vincent Botanical Garden, which survives today, was founded in 1765, and this is the earliest description of it. Ellis was an agent for West Florida and Dominica, and corresponded widely with other naturalists of his day. Linnaeus proclaimed him "the main support of natural history in England." Of great rarity; only a handful of copies in ESTC, and no copies in auction records. ESTC T49239. TAXANOMIC LITERATURE II 32746.

Wedi eu llofa, au dethol, allan o waith rhai or Awduriaid ardder choccaf, a fu erioed yn yr Iaith Gymraeg. Jones, poet and literary editor, is remembered as compiler of the anthology Gorchestion beirdd Cymru (1773), elegantly printed by Stafford Prys of Shrewsbury. The opening pages contain a handful of pieces attributed to three early Welsh poets, Aneirin, Taliesin, and Llywarch Hen, but the volume is primarily dedicated to the works of the cywyddwyr, whose compositions between c.1350 and 1550 represent a golden era in the history of Welsh literature. Renaissance scholars of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, and their successors in the eighteenth, had long sought to publish this material which, having been assiduously collected by generations of copyists, remained out of sight in private libraries. The Gorchestion, a rare success, made public for the first time the works of sixteen cywyddwyr, among whom Dafydd ap Gwilym is given pre-eminence, 27 of the 103 pieces being in his name. See ODNB.
