EHLERS, Martin.
Dessau: Buchhandlung der Gelehrten, [1782]. Dessau: Buchhandlung der Gelehrten,, [1782]. Small octavo (157 x 91 mm). Contemporary mottled paste paper boards, smooth spine decoratively tooled in gilt, twin green paper labels, Franziska von Hohenheim's initials tooled in gilt to the first, date tooled in gilt to the second, central red label titled in gilt, edges red, green silk book marker. Engraved head- and tailpieces. Early library stamp, "Baechingen a/ Brenze", hand numbered with shelfmark "no. 422", to title page. Spine ends and corners lightly worn, overall a crisp, clean copy. First edition, notably rare, of the Kiel professor of philosophy and educational reformer's treatise on liberty, this copy from the celebrated Franziska von Hohenheim collection. The work was printed by the Buchhandlung der Gelehrten at Dessau in Saxony-Anhalt, founded in 1781. The press allowed authors greater freedom than usual over size, type, and paper, and the works were published at the author's own expense, the press charging only a relatively small fee for distribution and sale. Ehlers chose a superior, thick laid paper for the publication of Lehre von der mensclichen Freyheit, and some of his statements are emphasised through the use of a larger font. Having completed his studies in theology and philosophy at Kiel and Göttingen, Martin Ehlers (1732-1800) became rector first of the Latin school at Segeberg in 1760, and then at Oldenburg in 1768. Ehlers' subsequent proposal to reform the school system expressed his thoughts on the introduction of a national education program, the secular … [Click Below for Full Description]

Atlante fra i più belli e completi mai pubblicati in Italia nel XVIII secolo, l'opera più famosa dello Zatta. L'""Atlante Novissimo"", come si specifica anche nel titolo, è ""accresciuto sulle osservazoni scoperte fatte dai più celebri e più recenti geografi"". Tra le novità più significative vi è la comparsa delle nuove isole scoperte nell'Oceano Pacifico da James Cook e la prima carta italiana della Nuova Zelanda. Le illustrazioni sono state disegnate in massima parte da Giovanni Pitteri e incise in rame da Giuliano Zuliani. Acquaforte, coloritura coeva dei contorni, in buone condizioni." "Map taken from the ""Atlante Novissimo"" of Zatta, published between 1779 and 1785. Atlas among the most beautiful and complete ever published in Italy in the eighteenth century, the most famous work of Zatta.The ""Atlante Novissimo"", as it is also specified in the title, is ""enhanced on the observations made by the most famous and most recent geographers"". Among the most significant innovations there is the appearance of the new islands discovered in the Pacific Ocean by James Cook and the first Italian map of New Zealand. The illustrations were mostly designed by Giovanni Pitteri and engraved in copper by Giuliano Zuliani. Etching, original outline colour, in good condition."

Berne: chez la Nouvelle Société Typographique,, 1782. où se trouvent les circonstances de sa mort, publié en allemand, & traduit avec un abrégé de la vie de ce navigateur célèbre, & des notes. Octavo (180 x 122 mm). Contemporary velllum over pasteboards, pale red spine label, red sprinkled edges. Housed in a pale brown cloth folding case, triple red labels. Old purple pencil docketing to title, early ink ownership inscription obscured at head of front pastedown. Vellum a little soiled and with traces of old blue pencil, spine label chipped, a few minor spots or stains, still a very good copy. First edition in French, translated from Reise um die Welt mit Capitain Cook (Mannheim, 1781), with additional notes not included in the original. Johann Heinrich Zimmermann (1741-1805) sailed on HMS Discovery on James Cook's third voyage to the Pacific and wrote this unauthorized account of the voyage. Zimmermann's narrative is, along with Rickman's, the earliest published account of Cook's final voyage, and offers a useful below-decks view of the expedition leader, notably different from that of his admiring Royal Navy officers. Zimmermann's account includes the first life of Cook published in book form. This edition precedes the authorized account of the third voyage by three years.

Acquaforte e bulino, 1782. Da un soggetto di Giuseppe Palazzi. Bella prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva, con margini irregolari, per il resto in buone condizioni. Le macchine del fuoco per la festa della Chinea Chinea in senso letterale, era la mula bianca (o il cavallo ambiatore delle Asturie) che i Re di Spagna presentavano annualmente al papa in forma solenne per il pagamento del censo per il Regno di Napoli. Il cavallo, convenientemente ammaestrato, s'inginocchiava davanti al pontefice e gli offriva la somma di danaro contenuta in un vaso d'argento fissato alla sella. L'offerta era preceduta da una solenne cavalcata della durata di due ore e mezza, lungo un itinerario preciso. Per rendere più solenne la cerimonia, con decreto del 12 maggio 1691 di Carlo II, si obbligavano i "grandi" di Spagna a partecipare al solenne corteo, al quale seguivano per due sere spari di macchine pirotecniche accompagnati da esecuzioni musicali, balli e rinfreschi. La chinea, per la sua regolarità, non era soltanto la festa estiva per eccellenza, ma il migliore biglietto da visita della monarchia spagnola (poi di quella napoletana) nella città eterna, l'arma propagandistica più convincente per guadagnare un consenso universale e l'appoggio politico delle altre potenze. Le celebrazioni erano fastosissime, malgrado i problemi politici della nazione, ed il consueto ritardo nell'invio del danaro per il loro svolgimento.

1782. George Washington on the Impending Execution of Charles Asgill: "The Enemy ought to have learnt before this, that my Resolutions are not to be trifled with." In the summer of 1782, following America's victory at Yorktown the previous September, peace negotiations were just getting underway in Paris between the United States and Britain. With their outcome uncertain, desperate Loyalists here sought to strengthen the British hold on New York, undermine America's vulnerable financial system, and exact revenge for their own losses. Spies were everywhere. In this powerful letter about two major cases, Washington supports civilian authority, shows frustration over his troops' handling of captured spies - especially a delay in following a habeas corpus ruling - and expresses steely anger over the British response to the pending execution of young Charles Asgill in retaliation for the murder of American captain Joshua Huddy. GEORGE WASHINGTON. Letter Signed, as Commander-in-Chief, Continental Army, to Elias Dayton, Headquarters, [Newburgh, N.Y.], June 11, 1782. 3 pp., with free frank signed on address panel on verso of 3rd page. 9 x 14 in.
