        Meynungen eines Layen - den Geistlichen zugeeignet. Stimmen des Layen auf dem letzten theologischen Reichstage im Jahr 1773. 189 S. Mit 2 Holzschnitt-Vignetten. Schlichter Pappbd d. Z. (beschabt, Gebrauchsspuren) in moderner Pappkassette mit vergold. Deckelschild.

      Leipzig, Weygand, 1775.. . Einzige Ausgabe, Rarissimum der deutschen Literatur. Diese zweiteilige Abhandlung ist Lenzens philosophisch-ästhetische und theologische Hauptschrift; Darstellung eines fiktiven Reichstages in Anlehnung an Klopstocks 'Gelehrtenrepublik'. In ihr emanzipiert sich der Sohn eines pietistischen Pastors in Livland am weitesten von den religiösen und weltanschaulichen Auffassungen, die seine Kindheit prägten, und säkularisiert sie entscheidend. Die Abhandlung ist als Vortrag konzipiert und wurde sicher in der Straßburger 'Sozietät' verlesen. Lenz selbst: "Die 'Meynungen eines Layen' sind der Grundstein meiner ganzen Poesie, aller meiner Wahrheit, all meines Gefühls" (zit. nach Schulte-Strathaus). "Rousseaus energet. Menschenbild wertete den Körper u. seine Energien auf, um ihn zu lenken, anstatt ihn zu unterdrücken. Wie alle Autoren des Sturm und Drang bejahte auch Lenz die menschl. Physis: 'Ist der Körper nicht das einzige, wodurch alles Glück zu uns kommt?' [zit. aus 'Meynungen eines Layen']. Damit verschärfte sich enorm die Kulturaufgabe, sexuelle Triebenergien sozialverträglich zu bändigen ... Die Triebenergie darf jedoch nicht verausgabt werden, sondern ist zu sublimieren, um den Menschen in ständiger Progression ('Streben') zu erhalten. So verknüpft L. in der Sublimierung den Fortschrittsgedanken der Aufklärung mit dem Individualismus des Sturm und Drang" (Killy, Literatur-Lexikon). Unmittelbaren Anstoß zu dieser Schrift hatte sein Freund Herder mit seiner 'Ältesten Urkunde des Menschengeschlechts' (1774) gegeben. Herder vermutete sofort Lenz als Autor des anonym erschienenen Buches und fragte diesen: "Hast Du die 'Meinungen eines Layen' geschrieben? Ich bitte Dich um Deines Herzens willen, sag mirs" (nach Müller/Stötzer, Lenz im Urteil dreier Jahrhunderte, Bern 1995, Band 1, S. 178). - Auf dem Vorsatz der handschriftl. Eintrag 'Dav. Christohph Schobingen, M. D. Ph. P.' Es handelt sich dabei um David Christoph Schobinger aus St. Gallen, der sich im Mai 1745 unter dem Namen 'Schobinguer' in Göttingen als Medizinstudent einschrieb und Schüler Albrecht von Hallers wurde. Später praktizierte er in St. Gallen. Vorderes Vorsatzblatt mit gelöschtem Stempel der Bibliothek des 'Seraph. Liebeswerks Solothurn'. Durchgehend nicht störend gebräunt und fleckig. Insgesamt ein durchaus ordentliches und vor allem authentisches Exemplar. - Zur Seltenheit: Dieses Werk ist seit über 80 Jahren nicht im deutschsprachigen Auktionshandel nachzuweisen. Die Mannheimer Lenz-Forschungsstelle weist drei Exemplare in Bibliotheken nach: Bibl. des Evangel. Stifts in Tübingen, Goethe-Museum Düsseldorf und Sammlung Otto Schäfer in Schweinfurt. Letzteres wurde 1979 aus dem Kaldewey-Katalog 51, Nr 305 erworben ('Lese-Kabinett 12', für DM 12.000,-), dort mit dem Hinweis: "Eventuell das einzige erhaltene Exemplar. Jedenfalls konnten die Herausgeber der kritischen Lenz-Ausgabe von 1966 ... keines Exemplares habhaft werden und folgten dem Text der Blei'schen Ausgabe von 1910". Ein viertes Exemplar in der Berliner Staatsbibliothek, das Grundlage für die Autopsie von Schulte-Strahaus war, ist Kriegsverlust. - Goed. IV 1, 784, 42. Schulte-Strathaus 8.

        PROPOSICIÓN DE NUEVA RUTA COMERCIAL ENTRE ESPAÑA Y RÍO DE LA PLATA Y ACLARACIONES A LOS REPAROS PUESTOS POR LA JUNTA DE CÁDIZ.]

      S.l.n.a. (c. 1775 - ). 31 cm. Dos partes: (I) [Propuesta de nueva ruta comercial.] 28 h., sin paginar. (II) [Aclaraciones a los reparos puestos por la Junta de Cádiz.] 70 h., sin paginar. Dos partes enc. en un vol. en pergamino, lomo despegado, restos de cierres. Cerco de antigua humedad en margen interno, sin afectar a la lectura. Interesantísimo documento que propone una nueva ruta comercial entre España y el Río de la Plata. Atendiendo a la elevada mortalidad de españoles a la llegada de galeones a Portobelo (hasta entonces destino final de la ruta) y la despoblación parcial del Perú y España por causa de dichas muertes, se propone, para mayor opulencia del erario real y teniendo en cuenta la dilatada experiencia peruana de quien realiza la propuesta -al que no hemos logrado identificar- el establecimiento de la ruta de galeones por la vía de Buenos Aires. Se lograría así una mayor brevedad del viaje que por la vía de Cartagena y Portobelo, se poblarían las principales provincias peruanas y se evitaría una navegación que se califica de dilatada, peligrosa y costosa. Se manifiesta abiertamente la conveniencia de Buenos Aires ante las "esterilidades" de Cartagena y Portobelo, llamado comúnmente "sepultura de españoles". El autor de estas páginas admite cierta problemática en relación a la poca agua del Río de la Plata para la entrada y salida de galeones, aunque considera que "no es ynsuperable este incombeniente". Dice asimismo que sería conveniente que los navíos o galeones para esta navegación se fabricasen a propósito, para lo cual dice haber contactado con los maestros cántabros, que no advierten problemas significativos. Así pues, solicita al rey -probablemente Carlos III- se digne mandar fabricar seis galeones para este fin y de cuatro a seis embarcaciones menores. Ofrece a continuación detalles de la ruta (distancias, escalas, seguridad), se extiende sobre las grandezas de Potosí y territorio adyacente y se centra en los siguientes apartados: comecio que se propone des de Lima a Buenos Aires; comercio que se hace desde Lima a Portobelo; comercio actual desde la Sierra a Lima y Portobelo; y comercio que se propone de la Sierra a Buenos Aires. El autor no deja ningún cabo sin atar, pues analiza todos los supuestos, tanto de la ruta en sí como de la administración, las relaciones con los administradores locales, los gastos, etc. Pese a ello, y sabiendo hoy que era una apuesta ganadora -el comercio activo entre España y el Río de la Plata floreció entre los años 1778-1810- parece ser que la Junta de Cádiz puso numerosos reparos a los cuales el autor no pudo responder adecuadamente. Por ello, en la segunda parte los analiza pormenorizadamente y responde, entre otros, a la queja de que la navegación de Cádiz a Buenos Aires es muy larga; a la de que la mayor parte del buque se ocuparía con víveres y cables; a la de que la entrada de los navíos en el río y la subida al amarradero es muy peligrosa; a la de la falta de resguardo de los navíos en el Río de la Plata; a la de los perjuicios que afectarán a los comerciantes por ser tan grande la distancia entre Buenos Aires y Potosí y de allí a Lima, etc. Las explicaciones ofrecidas son sensatas y rotundas: la propuesta es segura y rentable, se evitan riesgos de mar, se poblarán nuevos territorios, los gastos de conducción de ropas y géneros bajarán sensiblemente, los comerciantes de las provincias de la Sierra bajarán con sus caudales a la feria de Buenos Aires sin necesidad de fiarlos a terceros, etc. comercio, españa-américa, colonias, navegación, río de la plata, siglo XVIII, carlos III, rutas comerciales, buenos aires, argentina, perú Indústria, comerç i negocis Libros antiguos anteriores a 1830 Manuscritos español

        Gramatica Arabigo-Española, Vulgar y Literal. Con un Diccionario Arabigo-Español, en que se ponen las voces más usuales para una conversación familiar, con el Texto de la Doctrina Cristiana en el idioma arabigo.

      Madrid, en la Imprenta de Don Antonio Perez de Soto, 1775. - in-4. 9ff. 272pp. XVII. Plein vélin du temps (taches et petit accroc sur le plat supérieur). Edition Originale. Francisco Cañes (mort en 1775) était un missionnaire espagnol originaire de Valencia, qui résida pendant seize ans à Damas (Syrie) où il enseignait dans un collège. Cet ouvrage constitue apparemment la première grammaire arabe imprimée en langue espagnole avec des caractères arabes; dans sa préface, l'auteur rappelle notamment que l'ouvrage de Pedro de Alcalá, imprimé en 1505, était en caractères latins. "Presento pues al público esta gramática arabe, deseoso de contribuír por mi parte á que se pueda aprender con facilidad una lengua no ruda, bárbara, é inutil, y que algunos por ignorancia desprecian; sino elegante, erudita, y utilisima , como los hombres doctos reconocen: á vista de lo mucho que se escribe en ella, y de las numerosas naciones que la hablan en Asia, Africa y parte de Europa". Après avoir exposé les règles de la grammaire arabe, l'ouvrage propose un dictionnaire rangé par thèmes et, avec une pagination séparée, une version arabe de la Doctrine Chrétienne que les missionnaires devaient apprendre par cœur. Galeries de ver marginales à une douzaine de feuillets, sans atteinte au texte. Quelques rousseurs. [Attributes: First Edition]

        A MAP OF PENNSYLVANIA EXHIBITING NOT ONLY THE IMPROVED PARTS OF THAT PROVINCE, BUT ALSO ITS EXTENSIVE FRONTIERS: LAID FROM ACTUAL SURVEYS, AND CHIEFLY FROM THE LATE MAP OF W. SCULL, PUBLISHED IN 1770.

      London: Printed for Robert Sayer & J. Bennett, . 1775 - 28 1/2 x 54 3/4 inches, outlined in period color, backed on canvas. Small ink stamp near title, a few small worm holes expertly repaired. Very good. Archivally matted, protected with mylar sheet. A large and impressive map of the colony of Pennsylvania, published just a few months after the battle of Lexington and Concord, and drawing heavily from the landmark map executed by William Scull in 1770. Scull's original map is exceedingly rare, and noteworthy for showing the extensive Pennsylvania frontier, including western roads, paths, forts and other buildings, and the newly executed Mason-Dixon line. In the present map, printed for Sayer and Bennett, Scull's map is revised and improved, with clearer topographical delineations and including latitude and longitude markers. These improvements were likely added to aid British troops fighting in North America. Sayer and Bennett's map appears in several contemporary atlases, including Faden's THE NORTH AMERICAN ATLAS and Jefferys' THE AMERICAN ATLAS, both issued in 1776. Sayer and Bennett took over the Jefferys firm after Thomas Jefferys' death in 1771, and were among the most important British map publishers of their day. Not in Rumsey. PHILLIPS MAPS, p.674.

He was captured in 1777 by Continental Army troops commanded by Lt. Col. Marinus Willett, but escaped after a few months. He was probably the most hated Loyalist in America, amongst other things, because he commanded the Loyalist raiding party (which included Joseph Brant, a Mohawk chief) that attacked Cherry Valley on November 11, 1778 and the massacre after the battle. Ironically, it was Lt. Col. Willett, who, on October 30, 1781, came across Butler again while pursuing Major John Ross' forces after the Battle of Johnstown. Unfortunately for Col. John Butler, his son Walter was killed with a musket ball to his head, fired randomly from across the river. News of this came to the inhabitants around the same time Cornwallis' surrender was reported, but the Whig inhabitants seemed more pleased with the news of Butler's demise. However, it is said, the news of his death caused great rejoicing in New York's Mohawk Valley.

        DISSERTAZIONE IDRODINAMICA SOPRA IL QUESITO Vercar la cagione, per la quale l'acqua salendo ne getti quasi verticali de vasi, se le luci di questi getti siano assai tenui, essa non giunga mai al livello dell'acqua del Conservatorio, e quanto la luce

      MANTOVA: PER L'EREDE DI ALBERTO PAZZONI REGIO DUCALE STAMPA, 1775. In 4. Dim. 27,5x21 cm. Pp. 6 (n.n.)+136. Interessante opera del 1775, una dissertazione idrodinamica presentata al concorso dell'anno 1774 dal Padre Gregorio Fontana, professore di matematica all'Università di Pavia. Lo studioso stila questo trattato che incorpora elementi di idraulica, matematica e geometria per risolvere i seguenti quesiti: perchè i getti quasi verticali non giungono mai al livello dell'acqua del recipiente; perchè l'altezza del getto si rende sempre tanto minore, quanto è più piccolo il foro da cui l'acqua zampilla; perchè nuovamente tanto più il getto s'accorcia, quanto è più alta l'acqua della conserva; perchè e in quali circostanze allargandosi più l'orifizio o lume del getto, vie maggiormente questo s'abbassa. Nella prima parte Fontana mostra alcune esperienze di Mariotte e Bostut, nell'ultima parte mostra alcuni esempi e casi. Alla fine appendice sopra la resistenza del mezzo al moto de Projetti, come dell'aria ai getti d'acqua. All fine planche ripiegata. Tagli marmorizzati. Opera priva di legatura ma collazionata e risultata completa. Non comune, alto valore Copertina assente. Legatura in discrete condizioni con qualche rottura. All'interno le pagine si presentano in buone condizioni con fioriture. Bruniture e parti mancanti restaurate al frontespizio. Interesting work of 1775, an hydrodynamic dissertation presented to the competition of the year 1774 by the Father Gregorio Fontana, teacher of mathematics in the University of Pavia. The scholar writes down this treaty incorporating elements of hydraulics, mathamtics and geometry to solve the problems of the height of water in recipients In the first part Fontana shows some experiences of Mariotte and Bostut, in the last part some exemples and cases. At the end an appendix about the resistance of the medium in the movement as the air in the water's jet. Folded planche in the end. Boundless but collationed and it is complete. Not common work, high value. Cover is missing. Binding in fair conditions with some cracks. Inside pages are in good conditions foxings. Yellowings and missing restored parts in the title page.
