        Ancients Excavations at Carli

      - A highly detailed hand-colored aquatint engraving by Henry Salt (1780-1827) from his sweeping series “Twenty-four views in St. Helena, the Cape, India, Ceylon, the Red Sea, Abyssinia, and Egypt” These views were published in London by William Miller, 1809 and Robert and Daniel Havell were commissioned to executed the engraving on each plate. The overall dimensions of this print are 22" x 32". Henry Salt was born in Lichfield, England on 1780. He was initially trained as an artist under the direction of John Hoppner, a popular portrait painter of that time, in London. In 1802 he accompanied the Viscount Valentina as secretary and draughtsman on a tour of the east, including India, Abyssinia (modern Ethiopia) and Egypt. At the time it was common for wealthy travelers to be accompanied by an artist. Salt made many paintings on this voyage, some of which served to illustrate Lord Valentia's publication of his travels, published in 1809 as "Twenty-four Views in St. Helena, the Cape, India, Ceylon, the Red Sea, Abyssinia, and Egypt". This set of hand-colored aquatint engravings, executed by Robert and Daniel Havell, is often compared to Thomas and William Daniell's publication "Oriental Scenery" (1795-1808) and David Roberts' "The Holy Land, Syria, Idumea, Arabia, Egypt and Nubia" (1842-1849). Salt was a skilled draughtsman, portraying both the sweeping panoramic landscapes of India, Abysinnia and Egypt, and the costume and lifestyle of the peoples inhabiting those lands. After finishing this publication, Salt was summoned back to Abyssinia in 1809 by the British government to establish diplomatic and trading links. In 1816 Salt was given the post of British Consul-General of Egypt. His position gave him unique opportunities to pursue his growing interest in the monuments and antiquities of Egypt. He employed archeologists such as Giovanni Belzoni to excavate ancient Egyptian sites, such as Thebes, Giza and Abu Simbel, and undertook important archeological research at the Pyramids of Giza and the Sphinx. Salt also collected a large number of artifacts, such as the head of Ramses II, most of the antiquities Salt collected were purchased by, and can be seen at, The British Museum and the Louvre. In 1825, Salt published an important essay on the deciphering of hieroglyphs, a subject at the forefront of research at the time. Salt passed away in 1827 and was buried in Alexandria. This print is in very good condition overall with some foxing/staining and a few ink stains in margins.

He sympathized with the Lady Huntingdon and George Whitfield faction of Methodism but after 30 years this very controversial work advocating Polygamy - this led to a furore. Madan argues that monogamy can be harmful to women and his descriptions of the suffering of women under monogamy provoked charges of blasphemy. The work was in fact an important argument in the evolution of the legal rights of women for which the author had to resign his living and retire into private life. Scarce and rare first edition of a controversial book. 2 volumes.

        Mémoire sur le traitement électrique, administré à quatre-vingt-deux malades. Mémoire sur les effets généraux, la nature & l'usage du fluide électrique considéré comme médicament. In Histoire de la Société Royale de Médecine, avec les mémoires de médecine & de physique médicale, pour la même année. Années M. DCC. LXXVII et M. DCC. LXXVIII.

      Paris, impr. de Philippe-Denys Pierres et se trouve chez Didot le Jeune, 1780. - 1 volume in-4 (255 x 185 mm), XXIV, 324, 648, (4) pp., 26 tableaux dépl. h.t., 3 planches dépl. h.t. , plein veau raciné de l'époque, dos à nerfs orné, tranches rouges, coiffe supérieure arasée, sinon bel exemplaire à grandes marges, ex-libris armorié. Ce volume renferme les premiers mémoires de Mauduyt de la Varenne sur le traitement électrique. Ces mémoires sont les suivants : 1°) Mémoire sur le traitement électrique, administré à quatre-vingt-deux malades. (pp. 199-431, avec 1 tableau dépl.). 2°) Mémoire sur les effets généraux, la nature & l'usage du fluide électrique considéré comme médicament. De la manière d'employer lélectricité. Du prognostic. (pp. 432-455). Mauduyt de la Varenne fut chargé par Louis XIV d'étudier les effets des phénomènes électriques sur la santé et leur utilité en médecine. Ces mémoires ont été analysés par M. U. Zelbstein. Comme l'indique cet auteur "ce que va faire alors Mauduyt nous éclaire sur une tentative de rationalisation de la démarche expérimentale dans un domaine nouveau de la recherche médicale. Bien entendu, c'est encore le règne, assez net, de l'empirisme mais on y trouve parfois, sous-jacentes, quelques prémisses de la méthode scientifique". Les différentes observations rapportées se répartissent en diverses affections : paralysie, stupeurs ou engourdissements, rhumatismes, surdité, maladies des yeux (goutte sereine), L'évolution est clairement précisée pour chaque observation ; Mauduyt de la Varenne conclut en particulier à l'effet bénéfique de l'électricité dans les cas de paralysie. Mauduyt de la Varenne reçut les éloges de Lorry et Andry, ce qui contrastait avec les critiques qui avaient été émises sur les travaux de l'abbé Nollet, de l'abbé Bertholon, ¿ (seul Jallabert avant lui n'avait pas fait l'objet de critiques). Pierre-Jean-Claude Mauduyt de la Varenne (1733-1792) fut médecin et naturaliste. Il possédait un cabinet de curiosités renommé. U. Zelbstein, Mauduyt de la Varenne (1733-1792), un médecin au siècle des lumières, Histoire des Sciences Médicales, 1984, 18, 295-304 ; Rowbottom, Electricity and medicine, p. 25 : "Mauduyt de la Varenne (d. 1792) reported on an extensive series of trials at the early meetings of the Société Royale de Médecine and he also read a long paper on the methods that should be employed. This account appeaed in the Mémoires of the Society and as a separate publication (1784)." Ce volume renferme par ailleurs de nombreux articles dignes d'intérêt et d'importants mémoires. On peut citer en particulier un mémoire sur la topographie médicale de Marseille (75 pp.), des Suite des recherches sur la rage" par Andry (115 pp.) et un mémoire sur "les effets du seigle ergoté", par l'abbé Tessier (30 pp.).

Overall in good condition. ---- FIRST EDITION, first issue. First bibliography of the law written in Portuguese. Since the author insisted on including some passages censured by the Mesa Censoria, sale of the book was prohibited in 1781, and those who had purchased copies were ordered to return them (see @Grande enciclopédia III, 62-3). This first issue is not listed in Innocêncio (cf. I, 95), but @NUC cites one of 1780 at MH-L, with the same number of pages in the text but only 2 preliminary leaves. This first issue was almost certainly issued thus; the half-title appears not to be called for, and as there is no mention of a dedicatee on the title-page, it is logical that the two leaves of dedication encountered in the later issue are not required either.---- This first issue not in Innocêncio (cf.

        A Reply to the Observations of Lieut. Gen. Sir William Howe, On a Pamphlet, Entitled Letters to a Nobleman: In Which His Misrepresentations are Detected, and Those Letters are Supported, by a Variety of New Matter and Argument. To Which is Added An Appendix .

      Printed for G. Wilkie, London 1780 - Octavo. . . During the British occupation of Philadelphia in 1777-1778 Galloway was a "Superintendent" and Loyalist. In this volume he replies to General Howe's Observations, and elaborates how Howe could and should have won the war. Galloway counters Howe's claim that he was forced to fight in forest by pointing out that in many place more than three quarter of the land and at a minimum two thirds of the land in question was cleared farm land. Even though Galloway sounds hostile there is important information and details on the Revolution, the nature of the countryside and more. [Howes G48.

Mit 13 ausfaltbaren, kolorierten Tafeln im Anhang. Das Titelblatt mit dem (späteren) Namenszug 'Breme' sowie kleinem Stempel 'J.U.B.'.

      Berlin (?), um 1780. - 2 weiße Bl., Titelblatt, 1.Teil: 68 Seiten, 1 Bl. Inhaltsverzeichnis, 2. Teil: 316 Seiten, 2 Bl. Inhaltsverzeichnis, 2 Bl. vacat, 13 Tafeln. Dunkelbrauner Lederband der Zeit mit rotem goldgeprägtem Rückenschild ('Belehrung für den gemeinen Hussaren'), dreiseitigem Rotschnitt und hübschen, blauweißen Kleisterpapier-Vorsätzen (Rückengelenke mit geklebten Einrissen, Kanten stellenweise berieben), 18 x 12 cm. Die vorliegenden Handschriften entstanden vermutlich kurz nach dem Bayerischen Erbfolgekrieg um 1780 und widmen sich dem (preußischen) Husarendienst. Der erste Teil befasst sich vorrangig mit den grundständigen Aufgaben und der Ausbildung von gemeinen Husaren und Unteroffizieren im Felddienst. Der zweite Teil dagegen legt den Schwerpunkt mehr auf Teiltruppenführer und Offiziere, wobei der Autor seine eigenen Schlüsse zieht und sich auf zwei zur damaligen Zeit unter Fachleuten sehr bekannte Schriften stützt. Beide Arbeiten zeigen das gleiche Schriftbild. Sie sind nicht als gedruckte Werke nachweisbar. Obwohl keine genauen Angaben zum Autor oder dessen Herkunft gemacht werden können, lassen der Inhalt und die didaktische Gliederung der Schriften einen höherrangigen (vermutlich Stabs-)Offizier als Autor vermuten, der besonders die preußischen Husaren in ihrer Ausbildung, ihrem Einsatz und ihrer Wirkung als vorbildhaft ansah und sie daher zum Gegenstand seiner eigenen Ausführungen machte. Beide Handschriften sind zudem von besonderem Interesse, da sie sich mit den Husaren und den Bosniaken als selbstständigen Truppenteilen befassen. Diese Aufwertung erfolgte besonders in der Zeit während und nach dem Bayerischen Erbfolgekrieges 1778/79. Damit sind die beiden Schriften Ausdruck des Zeitgeistes, der neue taktische und strategische Überlegungen in die Ausbildung, die Verwendung und letztlich die Reglements der Husaren aufnahm - hervorzuheben sind hier die etwa zeitgleichen "reformerischen" Schriften Hans Joachim von Zietens sowie Johann Heinrich von Günthers. Deutlich wird diese Intention besonders im zweiten Teil der Handschrift, der teilweise längere zitierte Passagen aus den 1753 in kleinster Auflage ausschließlich für seine Offiziere erschienenen 'General-Principia vom Kriege' Friedrichs des Großen enthält, die erst nach 1760 durch unautorisierte französische Ausgaben allgemein zugänglich wurden, sowie dem "Husaren im Felde" (1762) von P.J.Platen. Beide Schriften galten als richtungsweisend für den Husarendienst. Neben dem Bezug auf diese Fachliteratur sind jedoch besonders die eigenen Schlüsse des Autors von besonderem Interesse, wie auch seine graphische Verdeutlichung der behandelten Themen in dreizehn kolorierten Zeichnungen am Ende des Bandes. Der Inhalt im einzelnen: Der erste Teil befasst sich mit den Grundlagen, die ein gemeiner Husar im Felde zu beherrschen hat. Denn für den Autor steht fest, dass Paraden und Exerzieren zwar schön anzusehen sind, sie aber im Kriege selbst nichts nützen. Vielmehr müsse sich der gemeine Husar in seinen Waffen, den Pistolen und dem Säbel sowie insbesondere im Reiten üben. Der Autor bezieht seine Ausführungen auf direkte Situationen wie Plänkeleien, Aufklärungen und Feldwachen. In einfachen Worten führt er dabei Sinn und Zweck einzelner Vorgänge vor, so beispielsweise, dass wenn ein gegnerischer Offizier zu sehen ist, dieser sofort zu bekämpfen sei, um die Befehlskette des Gegners zu stören. Doch auch das Verhalten bei Gefangennahme wird ausgeführt. Damit richtet sich der Autor nach den damaligen neuesten Erkenntnissen, die, geht man von einer Entstehung der Schrift um 1780 aus, in den eher kleineren Gefechten während des Bayerischen Erbfolgekrieges gemacht worden waren. Ähnliche Schlüsse finden sich auch in den grundlegenden Schriften Zietens und Günthers. Richtet sich die erste Schrift an den gemeinen Husaren, konzentriert sich die zweite auf die Belehrung von Truppenführern und Offizieren. Auch hier werden Schlüsse aus bisherigen Konflikten gezogen. Allerdings werden diese durch zahlreic [Attributes: Hard Cover]
