        Originalien.

      2 Tle. in 1 Band. Mit gest. Frontispiz u. gest. Titel mit Portrait Medaillon. 260 S., 1 w. Bl. Hübscher HLdr. d. Zt. mit Rückenschild und Rückenverg. Goed. IV/1, 865, 192; Schulte-Str. 44: "Diese Sammlung von aufgefangenen Redensarten, Auszügen aus der deutschen Chronik, Gedichten etc. wurde ohne Schubarts Wissen von dem Ulmer Arzt Jakob Joseph Meergraf herausgegeben", als Schubart bereits auf dem Hohenasberg eingekerkert war. Wahrscheinlich ist, daß sich Schubart und Meergraf begegnet sind als Schubart 1775, aus Augsburg ausgewiesen, nach Ulm ausgewichen ist. Viele der hier zusammengetragenen "Machtsprüche in unserer teutschen Mannsprache" scheinen während verschiedener Gespräche mit Schubart aufgezeichnet worden zu sein. Schubart vermochte gerade "im mündlichen Verkehr ... sein Bestes zu geben. Sein Geist sprühte allezeit Witzesfunken und strömte über vor glücklichen Einfällen" (Krauß, Schwäb. Litteraturgeschichte I, 162). - Leicht gebräunt. Schönes Exemplar!

        Maritime School on the Banks of the Thames, for the Education of the Sons of such Sea Officers, and others, as may be intended for the King's, the East India Company's, or the Merchants Service [caption title]

      [Chelsea, England?: no publisher. circa 1780s]. Small quarto pamphlet, approximately 6.75" x 3.5". 19, [1, blank] pp., A--B[4], C1--C[ 2]. Stitched, without wrappers, later (?) paper reinforcement strip to spine. First leaf slightly dust-soiled, very good. This pamphlet serves as a continuation of a proposal first made in1777 to establish at Chelsea a naval training school for young English boys. The school was the brainchild of English philanthropist andmerchant Jonas Hanway. The objectives of the school were to train young boys for the Royal Navy, and to ensure the children of fallenofficers who had died in serving their country could receive a naval education. The details of the institution and its benefits for King,country, and character are herein outlined. Pages 13--19 record a lengthy list of subscribers; many, quite obviously, with title, status, and notable standing.Not on ESTC, COPAC, or OCLC. A variant example, in seventeen pages, held by the National Maritime Museum in England, has a similar, but variant title, and suggests a date of 1781. We suspect NMM's example chronologically preceded this present example. Other Maritime School on the Banks of the Thames pamphlets are recorded, but not with this title's wording. Additionally, they often appear to post-date this present example which is apparently unrecorded. Of the other editions, not one mentions in the caption title that the school was intended for training individuals who would then serve with the East India Company. A curious anomaly? .
