        Grand Quatuor Pour Deux Violons, Alto et Basso [Quartet No. 7 in E major for violin, viola, cello and guitar, M.S. 34] - 1832 Copyist Manuscript with Interesting Provenance

      - Autograph manuscript copy of the complete parts for Paganini's Quartet No. 7 in E major for violin, viola, cello and guitar, M.S. 34, here transcribed for standard String Quartet (violin, violin, viola, cello).  8.5" x 13". 54 pages including front cover and individual cover pages. Outer wrapper spine reinforced with early paper tape over original threaded binding, scattered staining, overall very good. The title page and likely the manuscript entirely in the hand of Johann Christoph Bauriegel (1773 - 1851), German teacher and Biblical scholar who lived in Pulgar (near Leipsic), and who has signed lower right "Johs: Bauriegel / Pulgar 1832."  Cover and parts also inscribed and stamped by the composer and arranger, Carl Dietrich (1816 - 1875), and further by Friedrich Maximillian Bernhardt Fincke (1821 - 1906), noted German-born physician and homeopathic pioneer who was also well known as a musician. In all, Paganini wrote fifteen quartets for violin, viola, guitar and cello, but only three for the archetypal string quartet. Composed between 1817 - 1818, the present work is dedicated to the Genovese Marquis Caterian Raggi Pallavicini, and is a notably more interesting composition than the earlier quartets. Only five of Paganini's works were published during his lifetime, and the rest of his oeuvre was published posthumously, including the present Quartet No. 7 in E Major, which was the first of the quartets to have been published in its original version after the composer's death.  Notably, the Leipzig firm Kistner published a transcription of the work for String Quartet ca. 1830 (plate number 839), this being the likely model from which the present manuscript was copied.

        Traité des délits et des peines. [Bound with:] Commentaire sur le livre des délits et des peines.

      Paris: chez J. F. Bastien, 1773 - 2 works bound in one volume, octavo (160 x 90 mm). Contemporary mottled calf, tan morocco label, raised bands, spine elaborately decorated in gilt with central floral tools, all edges red, marbled endpapers. Slight surface loss to board edges, small repair to leaf A, tiny loss due to production fault to edges of leaf Av of the Commentaire, the occasional minor blemish to contents. An excellent copy. First edition of Chaillou de Lisy's translation, endorsed by Beccaria. Undoubtedly the most influential work on criminal justice in the 18th century, Beccaria's treatise was originally published in Italian in 1764, first published in French in 1766 and in English in 1767. Cesare Beccaria, Marchese Beccaria-Bonesana, a well-to-do Milanese professor of law and economics, had made many prison visits and was appalled at what he saw. His short book was immediately successful and widely influential in stimulating reform in many countries, including the nascent United States. "Beccaria maintained that the gravity of the crime should be measured by its injury to society and that the penalties should be related to this. The prevention of crime he held to be of greater importance than its punishment, and the certainty of punishment of greater effect than its severity. He denounced the use of torture and secret judicial proceedings. He opposed capital punishment, which should be replaced by life imprisonment; crimes against property should be in the first place punished by fines, political crimes by banishment; and the conditions in prisons should be radically improved. Beccaria believed that the publication of criminal proceedings, verdicts and sentences, as well as furthering general education, would help to prevent crime. These ideas have now become so commonplace that it is difficult to appreciate their revolutionary impact at the time" (PMM). Beccaria's Dei delitti e delle pene was first published in French in 1766, in a translation by economist and Encyclopediste André Morellet. Morellet's translation, based on the third edition of Beccaria's treatise, was criticised for being unfaithful, leading Beccaria to seek out another translator, whom he found in librarian Chaillou de Lisy. Chaillou de Lisy's translation was widely acclaimed and remained the standard text even when other translations followed. Included in this edition are the "Jugement d'un célèbre professeur sur le livre Des Délits & des Peines" and the author's response to a monk ("un moine de Vallombreuse") who had attacked his theories and denounced him to the authoroties, "Réponse à un écrit intitulé Notes et Observations sur le livre Des Délits & des Peines". This copy is bound with Voltaire's highly admirative Commentaire, which was first published anonymously in Geneva in 1766 (this copy being undated but most probably an early 1770s edition). In 1772 Voltaire wrote to Beccaria, forty years his junior: "Your book upon crimes and punishments opened the eyes of many of the lawyers of Europe who had been brought up in absurd and inhuman usages; and men began everywhere to blush at finding themselves still wearing their ancient dress of savages" (William F. Flemning, The Works of Voltaire, Vol. 11, p. 31). See Printing and the Mind of Man 209. [Attributes: First Edition]

        A Decade of Curious Insects

      ' Some of them not describ'd before: Shewn in their natural size; and as they apear enlarg'd before the Lucernal Microscope; In which the Solar Apparatus is artificially illuminated. With their History, Characters, Manners, and Places of Abode'. A printed note to the verso of title reads 'Ladies who may chuse to paint these insects themselves may have sets of the cuts on Royal Paper printed pale for that purpose'. Illustrated with charming, vivid hand coloured engraved plates of greatly enlarged microscopic insects, some of which appear rather inaccurate. Hagen states, 'Fabricius nennt die Abbildungen 'fictitiae' wohl mit Unrecht, da durch künstliche Beleuchtung nicht achromatischer Gläser offenbar Hill die Sachen so sah, wie er sie abbildet.' [Fabricius called the illustrations 'fictitiae' probably unfairly, because with artificial lighting without achromatic lenses apparantly Hill saw things as he depicted them].[Hagen I, p. 366; Nissen ZBI, 1938]

        Il governo civile tradotto nell'italiano idioma e dedicato a sua eccellenza il sig. Girolamo Durazzo dell'eccellentissimo Marcello

      (Luigi Alessandro Lupi), 1773. In - 8°, pp. VIII, 288, legatura in piena pergamena muta. Prima e unica traduzione italiana del XVIII secolo di questo trattato di Locke edito in maniera anonima, e con il falso luogo di Amsterdam mentre si trattò probabilmente di Livorno, dal genovese Luigi Alessandro Lupi. Dedicato a Girolamo Durazzo, futuro doge della Repubblica Ligure dal 1802 al 1805 Importante testo del grande filosofo che in questo saggio fonda la dottrina della società liberale. Locke critica l'assolutismo e mette a fondamento dello stato liberale proprio il concetto di 'legge di natura' nel quale fa rientrare anche il diritto alla proprietà, in quanto fondato sul lavoro personale. Lo Stato quindi chiederà la rinuncia ad un solo diritto naturale, quello di farsi giustizia da sé. Ed è proprio sulla base di questi concetti che ogni forma di Stato assoluto o arbitrario va contro ragione e i cittadini hanno il diritto di resistere ad esso e di mutarlo. E così facendo dà inizio alla teoria della limitazione dei poteri civili e della loro distinzione su cui si fonderà la successiva dottrina del liberalismo.

D'Holbach (1723 - 1789) publia cet essai trois ans après le "Système de la nature", qui avait créé une vive polémique, l'auteur défendant des propos athées et matérialistes. Il insiste à nouveau ici sur le fondement naturel de la morale, qu'il détache ainsi de tout principe religieux.

Les planches étaient publiées par série de six par souscription, comme le souligne Sepp dans son avant - propos ("auxquels on continuera d'en produire à chaque fois six planches ensemble"). Notre exemplaire est bien complet des 14 premières livraisons. Le texte d'explication des gravures en regard de chaque planche, est en cinq langues. L'imprimeur a choisi d'insérer cinq pages de titre, une pour chaque langue, latin, français, anglais, allemand et néerlandais. Le naturaliste et éditeur Jan Christiaan Sepp (1739 - 1811) a commencé à publier cet ouvrage en 1773, en reprenant tout d'abord les travaux de Seligmann ("Abbildung in - und ausländischer Hölzer" publié à Nürnberg) puis il a enrichi son ouvrage des spécimens du cabinet de curiosités du révérend Hazeu. Il travailla sur ce projet assisté par Martinus Houttuyn (1720 - 1798). L'ensemble composé de 100 planches de gravures, fut rassemblé par la suite et publié en un ouvrage en 1791, avec une page de titre légèrement modifiée et enrichie d'un frontispice, puis un supplément de 6 planches sera ajouté en 1795.

        Veduta della Villa Estense in Tivoli

      1773. - PRIMO STATO DI TRE - Acquaforte e bulino, 1773, firmata in lastra . Esemplare della contemporanea tiratura romana. Magnifica prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva con filigrana "doppio cerchio e giglio con letter CB", con pieni margini, in perfetto stato di conservazione. Della serie Vedute di Roma. L'opera consiste in 135 lastre prodotte individualmente dal Piranesi per almeno 30 anni, da circa il 1745, fino alla data della sua morte. All'opera sono aggiunte poi 2 vedute realizzate dal figlio Francesco. Per la prima volta furono edite dall'editore Giovanni Bouchard nel 1751 (34 lastre), successivamente dallo stesso Piranesi editore a Palazzo Tomati in Roma (scritta che appare su molte tavole), fino alla stesura definitiva composta da 137 lastre. Successivamente alla morte dell'autore le lastre furono ereditate dal figlio Francesco, che ne curò la pubblicazione prima nella capitale, e successivamente a Parigi. Le lastre furono poi acquisite dalla Calcografia Camerale, oggi Calcografia Nazionale, dove sono tuttora conservate. Le opere che proponiamo fanno parte di un album nella stesura definitiva, stampato a Roma tra il 1770 ed il 1780. " - THE FIRST STATE OF THREE - Etching with engraving, 1773, signed on plate. From the contemporary Roman Edition. A very good impression, printed on contemporary laid paper with watermark ""double encircled fleur de lys with letters CB"", with margins, very good condition. Taken from Vedute di Roma; the whole work consists of 135 plates which have been individually produced by Piranesi along 30 years, from 1745 circa until his death. Two more works have been subsequently added, two plates by his son Francesco. They have been printed for the first time in 1751 (34 plates) by the editor Giovanni Bouchard, afterwards by Piranesi himself, publisher in Palazzo Tomati in Rome (as it is written on m,any plates), until the final edition of 137 plates. After Piranesi's death, his son Francesco inherited the plates, editing them first in Rome and then in Paris. The Calcografia Camerale, nowadays Calcografia Nazionale, has then bought the plates which are now kept inside the building." Roma Rome Hind 105, I/III; Focillon 826; Wilton Ely 238. 690 460

        A Journal of a Voyage to the South Seas, in His Majesty?s Ship, The Endeavour. Faithfully transcribed from the papers of the late Sydney Parkinson, draughtsman to Joseph Banks on his late expedition, with Dr. Solander, round the World.

      London, printed for Stanfield Parkinson, 1773.Large 4to. Contemporary polished calf, skilfully rebacked, spine gilt with red morocco title label. With engraved frontispiece portrait by J. Newton, engraved map and 26 engraved plates. XXIII,212 pp. + errata leaf. First edition of the principal alternative account of Cook?s first voyage. - 'This is an account of the first expedition under the command of Captain Cook, 1768-1771. Parkinson was engaged as natural history draughtsman by Sir Joseph Banks, to accompany him and Captain Cook in the Endeavour to the South Seas. Parkinson made numerous drawings of botanical and other subjects, including landscapes and portraits of native chiefs. After exploring Tahiti, New Zealand, Australia, and the Great Barrier Reef, the expedition reached Batavia. On leaving for the Cape of Good Hope, Parkinson succumbed to fever and dysentery and was burried at sea' (Hill p.462). Parkinson's manuscripts and drawings became a matter of dispute. Banks considered that they were his, while Parkinson' brother Stanfield claimed them under the provisions of his brother's will. When Hawkesworth learned of the impending publication of this work, he obtained an injunction to prevent it appearing until some time after the official account.

        Set of Cook’s Three Voyages.

      London, 1773-1784. 6/25/16. b/w plates, charts, many folding and double page. to. 8 vols. Various paginations. This set consists of the first printing of Cook’s first voyage, the second printing of Cook’s second voyage, and the second printing of Cook’s third voyage, with all plates and charts, along with the "Chart of the Streight of Magellan" in volume I. It is a clean set, with pages very slightly and evenly tanned, light offsetting from some plates and charts, and occasional foxing. Bound in 19th century half black morocco over marbled boards, with top edges gilt and outer and bottom edges marbled. Backstrips in six compartments with elaborate gilding and anchor decorations, and title and date labels. Light wear to spine ends, but a very good set with an agreeable antique look. Most interestingly, the title pages of the first three volumes bear what I believe to be GEORG FORSTER'S signature. Forster accompanied Cook on his second voyage, and wrote his own important account.

        Grand Quatuor Pour Deux Violons, Alto et Basso [Quartet No. 7 in E major for violin, viola, cello and guitar, M.S. 34] - 1832 Copyist Manuscript with Interesting Provenance

      Used; Like New/Used; Like New. Autograph manuscript copy of the complete parts for Paganini's Quartet No. 7 in E major for violin, viola, cello and guitar, M.S. 34, here transcribed for standard String Quartet (violin, violin, viola, cello).  8.5" x 13". 54 pages including front cover and individual cover pages. Outer wrapper spine reinforced with early paper tape over original threaded binding, scattered staining, overall very good. The title page and likely the manuscript entirely in the hand of Johann Christoph Bauriegel (1773 - 1851), German teacher and Biblical scholar who lived in Pulgar (near Leipsic), and who has signed lower right "Johs: Bauriegel / Pulgar 1832."  Cover and parts also inscribed and stamped by the composer and arranger, Carl Dietrich (1816 - 1875), and further by Friedrich Maximillian Bernhardt Fincke (1821 - 1906), noted German-born physician and homeopathic pioneer who was also well known as a musician. In all, Paganini wrote fifteen quartets for violin, viola, guitar and cello, but only three for the archetypal string quartet. Composed between 1817 - 1818, the present work is dedicated to the Genovese Marquis Caterian Raggi Pallavicini, and is a notably more interesting composition than the earlier quartets. Only five of Paganini's works were published during his lifetime, and the rest of his oeuvre was published posthumously, including the present Quartet No. 7 in E Major, which was the first of the quartets to have been published in its original version after the composer's death.  Notably, the Leipzig firm Kistner published a transcription of the work for String Quartet ca. 1830 (plate number 839), this being the likely model from which the present manuscript was copied.

        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

      London: W. Strahan and T. Cadell,, 1773-84. [Together with:] A Voyage towards the South Pole, and Round the World. Performed in His Majesty's Ships the Resolution and Adventure, in the years 1772, 1773, 1774 and 1775 [Together with:] A Voyage to the Pacific Ocean. Undertaken by the command of His Majesty, for making Discoveries in the Northern Hemisphere. 9 volumes: 8 quarto (285 x 215 mm) and one folio (567 x 395 mm). Uniformly bound in late 19th-century brown half morocco, spines gilt tooled with nautical motifs, brown pebble-grain cloth sides, speckled egdes. With all plates, maps and plans as called for. Bindings slightly rubbed at extremities, a few maps torn at folds (but without loss), one or two of the larger plates trimmed by the binder, scattered foxing in some volumes. A very good set, complete and uniformly bound. Second and best edition of the first voyage, first edition of the second and third voyages. "Cook earned his place in history by opening up the Pacific to western civilisation and by the foundation of British Australia. The world was given for the first time an essentially complete knowledge of the Pacific Ocean and Australia, and Cook proved once and for all that there was no great southern continent, as had always been believed. He also suggested the existence of antarctic land in the southern ice ring, a fact which was not proved until the explorations of the nineteenth century. Cook was a brilliant navigator and hydrographer, an excellent administrator and planner, and probably the first sea captain to realise the importance of preserving the health and well-being of his crew. He did everything possible to maintain their physical fitness and the cleanliness of both men and ships. He conquered the hitherto prevalent scurvy by cutting down the consumption of salt meat and by always having fresh vegetables and fruit on board" (PMM). The National Maritime Museum catalogue points out that the third voyage "was so eagerly awaited by the public that it was sold out on the third day after publication, and although the published price was £4 14s. 6d, as much as 10 guineas was offered by would-be purchasers".

        Essays concerning iron and steel:

      12mo., (2) 223 (1)pp., wanting a half-title, short tear to inner margin of title (no loss), inner margin (gutter) of following leaf stained, contemporary sheep, stamped in blind, some wear to joints else a sound copy. A valuable contemporary contribution to the rather fraught, and certainly competitive, early development of modern steel manufacture in England. Although Benjamin Huntsman (1704-1776) of Sheffield has been usually credited with the invention of crucible steel, or 'cast steel' as it was known at the time, the little known Henry Horne, a London-based cutler seems also to have played a part in developing new methods of steel manufacture at about the same time. Surprisingly, Horne mentions in his Essays neither Huntsman nor Samuel Walker, another contemporary experimenter in crucible steel making. In his book, Horne claims originality in his own process and seems to have perfected an efficient and commercial steel razor manufacturing business in London, the steel itself being produced with a highly polished surface. The steel used, Horne claimed, was "vastly superior" to that produced by his rival, John Waller, and which Horne was able to supply to the London cutlers "at a very moderate price". Waller eventually took the process to Sheffield and was able to undercut Horne's prices, resulting, inevitably, in substantial loss of business to the London manufacturer. Horne, while now hardly a footnote to industrial history, was certainly an early cast steel maker, although there is nothing in his account to suggest a date earlier than 1765, by which time others in Sheffield were also practising the art.

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: ".

        Bertuchs Bilderbuch für Kinder. 12 Bände.

      - Friedrich Justin Bertuch, »der Kaufmann der Goethezeit« wie ihn sein Biograf von Heinemann nannte, gehört zu den interessantesten und Vielseitigsten Persönlichkeiten der Kulturgeschichte seiner Zeit. Nach dem Studium der Theologie und Jura lebte er seit 1773 in Weimar und avancierte hier zum »shooting star« der Gesellschaft. Bertuch wurde kaufmännischer Mitarbeiter an der von Wieland herausgegebenen Zeitschrift »Teutscher Merkur«. Diese Verbindung sollte sich auswirken, als Karl August, mit 18 Jahren die Regierung antrat. Auf Empfehlung des Prinzenerziehers Wielands berief er den 28jährigen Bertuch zu seinem Geheimsekretär und Schatullenverwalter, mit einem Jahresgehalt von 300 Talern. 1775 holte der junge Herzog den bereits berühmten Dichter Johann Wolfgang von Goethe nach Weimar. Die jungen Leute verstehen sich gut. Goethe bietet Bertuch das brüderliche Du an, welches Ihm der Dichterfürst später wieder entzieht. Zusammen mit Schiller wird er in den Xenien Hohn und Spott über ihn ausgießen. Bertuch wird dessen ungeachtet die erste Goethe-Ausgabe bei Goeschen mit finanzieren und der Geheime Rat wird sich an der Erstellung der Grabrede an den 1822 verstorbenen Unternehmer beteiligen. 1776 wird Bertuch Mitglied der Weimarer Freimaurerloge »Amalia« und schon bald zeigt er seine unternehmerischen Fähigkeiten. Die Bekanntschaft mit dem Maler Georg Melchior Kraus brachte ihn auf die Idee, eine Zeichenschule zu gründen. Diese Schule sollte von eminenter Bedeutung für das hier angezeigte »Bilderbuch« werden, da sie Bertuch die nötigen künstlerischen Kräfte für die über tausend kolorierten Kupfer bot. 1780 gründet er eine Fabrik für künstliche Blumen, um die »leider unbeschäftigten Mädchen der mittleren Classen heilsamer Arbeit zuzuführen«. Unter diesen Mädchen war auch eine Christiane Vulpius, spätere Frau von Goethe. Eine wichtige Ergänzung seiner Blumen- und Galanteriewarenfabrik bildet das 1786 gegründete »Journal der Moden«, mit dem Bertuch ausländische Modeströmungen zu Hause bekanntmachen und zugleich für seine Produkte Reklame machen konnte. Sein größtes Projekt wurde aber das »Industrie-Comptoir«. In einer Denkschrift beschreibt er es als »ein öffentliches kaufmännisches Commissions-Comptoir, in welchem jeder einheimische Künstler, Fabrikant und Handwerker die Muster seiner Fabrikate aufstellen, sie durch dasselbe außer Landes vertreiben . und von demselben richtige Zahlung und Sicherheit für seine Lieferung haben kann«. Bertuchs Verlag gehörte mit über 2000 publizierten Bücher und Zeitschriften zu einem der größten Unternehmen in Deutschland, Zeitweise beschäftigte er über 450 Mitarbeiter mit einer jährlichen Gehaltssumme von 27.000 Talern und war damit größter Arbeitgeber in Weimar. Sein eigenes Gehalt belief sich auf 3000 Taler und entsprach dem des Ministers Goethe.1790 begann Bertuch mit seinem größten Buchprojekt, dem »Bilderbuch für Kinder«. Er schreibt: »Ein Bilderbuch ist für eine Kinderstube ein ebenso wesentliches und noch unentbehrlichres Meuble als die Wiege, die Puppe, oder das Steckenpferd«. Die Auflage betrug 3.000 Exemplare. Das Werk erschien in einzelnen Lieferungen, um den Bezug auch für einen kleineren Geldbeutel möglich zu machen. Dennoch belief sich schließlich der Preis der bis 1830 erschienenen 237 Lieferungen mit ihren 1185 kolorierten Kupfern, einschließlich des 24-bändigen Begleitwerks Funkes mit seinen über 15.000 Seiten, auf rund 125 Taler. Ein Maurer verdiente damals (bei 304 Arbeitstagen) 72 Taler. Heute kostet das Werk im Antiquariatsbuchhandel etwa 15.000.- Euro. Im Vorwort entwickelt Bertuch sein bilddidaktisches Programm: Ein Bilderbuch müsse »schön und richtig gezeichnete und keine schlecht gestochene Kupfer haben, weil nichts wichtiger ist, als das Auge des Kindes, gleich vom Anfange an, nur an wahre Darstellung der Gegenstände . zu gewöhnen«. Weiter: »Es muß nicht zu viele und zu sehr verschiedene Gegenstände auf einer Tafel zusammendrängen; sonst verwirrt es die Imagination des Kindes und

      London, Benjamin White, 1773. 4to (307 x 265mm). pp. (2), 8, (22), 63, (1), (4), with 120 fine hand-coloured engraved plates. Contemporary green half morocco, spine in 6 compartments with gilt ornamented butterflies, lines and lettering. Second edition. The first edition was published 1747-49, by the same publisher. One of the most beautifully illustrated works on English butterflies and moths, most of the plants, fruits, and flowers of the fine plates are after drawings by George Ehret and Jacob van Huysum. In the preface of the present work Henry Baker, who compiled the text for Wilkes, writes: "As to the Plants, Flowers and Fruits, he [Wilkes] declares himself under the highest obligation to a most curious Naturalist, and worthy member of the Royal Society of London, whose costly and valuable Collection is known to the learned world, and esteemed as it derserves. This Gentleman has generously permitted him to make use of many excellent Paintings of these subjects, which were taken from Nature by those two celebrated Artists Mr. George Dennis [sic] Ehret, and Mr. Jacobus van Heysum [sic], and executed with the utmost Judgment and Command of Pencil, so that he could hardly doubt but that the true Copies of them would give great Pleasure to the Lovers of Botany, whom he has endeavoured to entertain with all the Variety he could introduce". The 'most curious Naturalist' is Joseph Banks who had purchased some 65 finished drawings by Ehret. "Benjamin Wilkes was one of the most significant of the group of eighteenth-century 'aurelians' which established British entomology in the direction it was to follow for well over a century" (Wilkinson, Benjamin Wilkes, the British Aurelian p. 4). It has only recently been rediscovered that the plates of Wilkes' work were to a large extent after drawings by the most renowned botanical painters of the 18th century, George Ehret 'Flower painter extraordinary' and Jacob van Huysum. A fine copy .//Nissen ZBI, 4410a; Lisney 186.
