Hans tryckta katalog omfattar omkring 11000 nummer och en handskriftsamling om 985 poster. Langebek ägde bl.a. en ovanligt fin samling svenska tryck och J. H. Lidén uppgav att han aldig sett så mycket svecana samlat någonstans utanför Sverige. Denne tillhörde också köparna på auktionen, bl.a. förvärvade han det exemplar av "Psalterium Upsalense" 1510 som nu befinner sig i Lunds universitetsbibliotek. På försättsbladet har Carlander antecknat: "Å auktionen i Köpenhamn på Langebeks efterlemnade bibliotek inköptes för Kongl. bibliotekets räkning 'böcker i historien, antiqviteterna och språken' för en summa af 6,000 dal. kmt. (jfr Samlaren 8/10 1773 o. Stockholms lärda tidningar 1777 n:r 75.) Katalogen (586 sid.) jemte supplement (37 sid.) omfattar 13,276 n:r (Sv. bibl. o. exlibr (2a uppl.)

SHAKESPEARE. - [FIRST DANISH TRANSLATION OF HAMLET-THE DANISH PRINCE]
Kiöbenhavn (Copenhagen), Hallager, 1777. 8vo. Contemporary half calf with gilt title-label to spine. Binding worn. Internally very nice, clean, and fresh, with only very minor and light occassional browning. Old owner's name finely removed from title-page. Printed on nice, heavy paper.. Very rare first edition of the highly interesting first Danish translation of "Hamlet", being the first translation of any of Shakespeare's works into any Scandinavian language.One of the most interesting translations of any work by Shakespeare must that of "Hamlet" into Danish, the legend of Prince Hamlet being Danish and the work taking place in Helsinore in Denmark. "In 1777 "Hamlet" was translated into Danish by Johannes Boye. As the plot is based on the Danish legend preserved by Saxo, it is fitting that "Hamlet" was the first Shakespeare to appear in Danish." (Nancy S. Reinhardt, Danish Literature. An exhibition at the Houghton Library. The Harvard College Library, Cambridge, Massachusetts, 1986, nr. 61).The present publication marks the beginning of the Shakespearian entry into Scandinavia, constituting as it does the very first translation of any of Shakespeare's works into any Scandinavian language. "We shall probably never know when Shakespeare first came to Denmark. That his name was known to scores of young Danish scholars who visited England and studied at her universities in the early years of the eighteenth century is all but certain. Holberg's silence cannot be construed into proof of complete ignorance, and Toger Reenberg, in some significant lines, celebrates Shakespeare as … [Click Below for Full Description]

Hanway, Jonas.
Printed for Dodsley, in Pall-Mall; Sewel, near the Royal-Exchange; and Bew, in Pater-noster-Row, 1777. This is the second edition of => father-daughter dialogues intended to strengthen => servants' morals by myriad examples and advice; it was first published as an octavo series in 1774, using much the same content as Hanway's earlier Farmer's Advice to his Daughter (1770). The author (1712-86) was a merchant and philanthropist known not only for his charity, but also for regularly sporting both a sword and an umbrella at a time when neither was fashionable, and for tipping attractive female servants especially well. (He was a prolific author, too.) Chapters include conversations between daughter Mary and her father on the utmost importance of prayer, sacraments, and charity; the "reciprocal duties of masters and servants"; the "necessity of subordination"; and "caution to female domestics against dancing-meetings," among many, many other topics large and small. The text is handsomely printed double-column in roman and italic, with => two finely engraved frontispieces signed by E. Edwards and J. Hall, one at the beginning of each volume: the first of a father and daughter sitting beneath a tree; the second of Hanway seated on a rock, contemplating a book and skull beneath the motto "Never Despair" -- the author's own, which he adopted after a particularly grueling merchant voyage for the Russia Company in 1743. Each volume also has its own title-page, the Manual of Devotion, Consisting of Prayers, Psalms, Hymns, and Lessons that appears between the two having its own … [Click Below for Full Description]

RATZER, Bernard (fl. 1756-84) & William FADEN, (1750-1836)
London: Wm. Faden, 1777. Copper-engraved map, with original outline colour, on two joined sheets, in very good condition. The first state of one of the finest and most celebrated maps of New Jersey, made during the Revolutionary War. This elegant composition depicts New Jersey in finely engraved detail at a large scale of 7 miles to an inch. The map was the grandest representation of the state made up to that time, taking in the entire breadth of the state, as well as the Hudson Valley, most of Long Island, eastern Pennsylvania and all of Delaware Bay. It captures the state's rich topography, including the Jersey Highlands and the Palisades in the north and the broad Pine Barrens and coastal marshes in the south. The county divisions, major roads and towns are all carefully depicted, indicating that New Jersey was, by the standards of the time, heavily populated, having over 120,000 inhabitants. Faden based his rendering of the state largely on the manuscript works of Bernard Ratzer, a British military surveyor most famous for his map of New York City. Ratzer's rendezvous with New Jersey cartography stemmed from the resolution of the bitter boundary dispute between that state and New York that had raged for over a century. In 1764, George III charged Samuel Holland and William De Brahm with settling the boundary, and their demarcation was finally surveyed by Ratzer in 1769. Ratzer's line is noted on the map as "The boundary settled by commissioners in 1769". Two of Ratzer's New Jersey manuscripts, one dealing with the boundary question, and another featuring Monmouth a … [Click Below for Full Description]

Guyton De Morveau Louis Bernard; Maret, Hugues ; Durande, Jean Francois
Dijon: Chez L. N. Frantin, 1777. First Edition. Hard Cover. Vol 1: [6],viii,394 pages. Vol II: [4], xxviii, 382 pages. Vol III: [4], x, 448, [4] pages. Vol 1 is in a period binding but rough with staining and loose. It also lacks the 2 plates. We have supplied a second copy of Vol 1 with the 2 plates in a later binding as a supplement. Volume II is sound and in a period binding. Vol III has one page (251) which was an end-sheet in the binding process - the margins are lacking, but the text is complete. Volume III is also rebacked in a period style retaining the original boards with portions of the original spine laid down. A hard set to put together, and rarely found complete and matched. 'A famous textbook by Guyton de Morveau and his colleagues, written to accompany the course of chemistry they gave under the auspices of the Academy of Dijon. Guyton planned the course and gave most of the lectures with the assistance of Dr. Maret (1726-1786) on materia medica and Dr Durande (d1794) on the chemistry of vegetable substances. 'The work was hailed throughout Europe as an important milestone and de Morveau became famous almost overnight. The treatise is important and interesting, for we can see that de Morveau already had the main lines fixed in his mind of those ideas which were later to appear in his Nomenclature chimique, which was first published by him in the Journal de Physique (1782), and finally adopted by Lavoisier, Fourcroy and Bethrollet in 1787' (Duveen)' (Neville I, p568).

[montesquieu - Genovesi].
Prima edizione del commento del Genovesi, stampata da Terres a otto anni dalla morte dell'autore. Una traduzione dello Spirito delle leggi era uscita parzialmente ad opera di Mecatti nel 1750, ma l'operazione era stata interrotta dalla censura. Terres, che possedeva il manoscritto del Genovesi, nel 1777 riuscì ad ottenere il permesso di stampa dell'opera commentata, con l'aggiunta di operette ad essa relative quali l'elogio di D'Alembert ad opera di Montesquieu, la Difesa dello Spirito delle leggi di J. Fontane de la Roche, il Ringraziamento sincero attribuito a Voltaire etc. Ottime condizioni

STERNE, (LAURENCE).
Neuchatel, l'imprim. de la Société typographique, 1777 respektive "Yorck" (=Paris), 1785. 12:o. (4),XXIV,286,(2 blanka) + (4),352 + IV,280 + (2),286 s. Två vackra men inte helt uniforma samtida lätt nötta hfrbd med rikt guldornerade ryggar, röda titel- och gröna deltiteletiketter i marokäng. Röda snitt. Ett litet maskhål i ryggskinnet på den första volymen och en liten repa på ryggen på den andra. Någon enstaka småfläck. Gamla välgjorda lagningar i marginalen på s. 37-40 i del I och 27-28 i del II. Del II delvis med en liten bruntonad fläck i nedre marginalen. Från Ericsberg. Rochedieu Bibliography of French translations s. 316-17. Voogd A bibliography of Sterne in French s. 103 respektive 105. De första två delarna är översatta av Frénais, de senare två av Charles F. De Bonnay. "The life and opinions of Tristram Shandy" utkom 1759-67 i åtta delar och den första franska delöversättningen trycktes redan 1760. Frénais var först med en fransk översättning i två band av originalets första fyra delar och den trycktes 1776, varpå följde detta omtryck. Dessa kompletterades först 1785 av De Bonnays översättning i två band av originalets del V-VIII. Samma år utkom ytterligare en översättning av del V-VIII av De la Beaume. Denna anses vara bättre än De Bonnays, men det var Frénais och De la Beaumes bägge översättningar som kom att bli standardutgåvan av "Tristram Shandy" på franska under de följande 50 åren.

Tafeln mit 12 meist kolorierten Kupfern, Lesebändchen. Sehr gutes Exemplar!. Arnaud de Rosnil (1698-1774), bedeutender französischer Chirurg, Mitglied der Academie Royale de Chirurgie de Paris und der Corporation of Surgeons of London, hatte 1768 eine "Dissertation sur les hermaphrodites" veröffentlicht, die hier in erster deutscher Übersetzung (von Johann Georg Krünitz?) vorliegt. Nach seiner Auffassung, die eine bedeutende Rolle im Hermaphroditismus-Diskurs der Aufklärungszeit spielte, sei ein Wesensmerkmal die gemischtgeschlechtliche Anatomie der Genitalien (die in den Abbildungen auch detailliert gezeigt werden). Diderot übernahm die meisten Abbildungen in den Artikel "Hermaphrodite" im Ergänzungsband der Encyclopedie (1777), vertrat jedoch die Überzeugung, dass spätestens die Sektion das unter der angeblichen Doppelgeschlechtlichkeit verborgene wahre Geschlecht aufdecken würde.- Hirsch-H. I, 205 - Wellcome II, 58 (nur engl. Übers.) - Libr. of the Karolinska Inst. 128f.: "The above work is considerably enlarged with an account of the defence of Anne Grandjean, also known by the name of Johann Baptist Grandjean, a case regarding a hermaphrodite which was discussed not only in Paris but all over Europe... Even if fanciful illustrations of hermaphrodites had occured several times in books and prints, the figures in Arnaud's work and the two copperplates by Moreau le Jeune seem to be the earliest depictions in printe … [Click Below for Full Description]
