A new edition appeared in three volumes in 1809. Wodhull's translation, accurate and austere, was for many years the standard one, and several of his versions of the plays were reprinted in the nineteenth century" (ODNB).

MORTON, John Latimer.]
London: printed and sold by James Phillips, 1782. FIRST EDITION. 8vo, pp. 34; with a half-title; twentieth century half brown morocco cloth boards; a very good copy. Morton, who writes from Wandsworth, begins with a reference to the Letter of Dr. Fothergill which had inspired him with a desire to visit the school. By 1782 Fothergill was dead but the school he had founded continued to flourish: 190 boys and 120 girls were now being educated there. Morton's main purpose in writing is to encourage further donations to the school. He also has a word or two on the curriculum; 'ingenuous lads, designed for carpenters, joiners and builders, might learn the first principles of geometry' and 'lads, who have a turn for fine writing' should not be discouraged as it might come in useful for those intending to become clerks. But such positions are oversubscribed and it is important not to give pupils ideas or expectations above their station; 'Farmers and mechanicks, with less temptation in their way, are more likely to become the more useful members of society.' Ackworth School continues to this day, and is one of eight English Quaker schools. OCLC records two copies in North America, at Minnesota and Swarthmore College.

Laclos. Les liaisons dangereuses. Amsterdam et se trouve à Paris , Neveu , 1782 .4 tomes en 4 volumes. Reliure milieu 19ème demi toile verte à la Bradel, pièces de titre en maroquin rouge. Les trois premiers volumes sont du tirage A de l’édition originale, selon la classification de Max Brun. Le dernier tome est quant à lui du tirage B. “B est la véritable seconde édition des Liaisons. Elle est très rare” (Max Brun). Toujours selon Max Brun, B corrige les fautes signalées dans l’errata de A, mais elle en introduit de nouvelles. De plus, il existe des exemplaires de B comportant des cahiers de A. Une restauration de papier au tome 2, en marge intérieure (voir la photo). Un petit manque au faux titre du même tome; ce faux titre a, de plus, été restauré en haut à gauche (voir la photo) et de même pour les deux feuillets suivants ; légères décolorations à la percaline. Trois coins du tome 1 sont un peu “arrondis”. Exemplaire agréable, avec de belles marges, ce qui n'est pas courant. Intérieur frais. La page de titre du tome 4 comporte une faute non signalée par Max Brun: on y lit “letttres”. Hauteur des feuillets : 172mm. Ne pas hésiter à demander d’autres photos (le site n’en permet que cinq).

Londres, 1782 [probablement imprimé en France, en Province] 1 volume in-8 (20 x 13 cm) de 205-(1) pp. Les pp. III à XIII sont un "Avis au peuple". Le dernier feuillet non chiffré contient l'errata. Reliure strictement de l'époque plein veau brun marbré à l'acide, dos à nerfs orné aux petits fers dorés, pièce de titre de maroquin rouge, tranches rouges, doublures et gardes de papier marbré. Excellent état de conservation, reliure et intérieur très frais. Edition originale. Ce volume a probablement été imprimé en province, en France contrairement à l'adresse de Londres qui est indiquée. La signature des cahiers n'indique pas une impression hollandaise. L'Histoire Philosophique et Politique des établissements et du commerce des européens dans les deux Indes de l'abbé Raynal paraît en 1770. Les éditions se succèdent pour aboutir à l'édition de 1780 (troisième édition) qui est interdite et censurée par la faculté de théologie de Paris. L'abbé Raynal prenait des libertés avec la religion et la monarchie (la religion y est traitée de la manière la plus matérialiste qui soit et l'esclavage y est dénoncé de manière très ouverte). La Faculté de théologie de Paris repère ainsi les articles : De l'homme et de la loi naturelle - De la religion juive - De Jésus-Christ - De l'établissement de la religion chrétienne - Des martyrs - D … [Click Below for Full Description]

HLwd. um 1840. Sprache: Deutsch Bestell-Nr: 24263 Bemerkungen: Erste deutsche Ausgabe der Autobiographie, im selben Jahr wie die Originalausgabe herausgegeben. - Fromm 22673. - Die Übersetzung dieser Ausgabe besorgte Karl Gottfried Schreiter; im gleichen Jahr erschien bei Unger in Berlin eine Übersetzung unter dem Titel "Bekenntnisse". Rousseau versuchte im Winter 1770/71 die in den 60er Jahren entstandenen "Confessions" durch Lesungen der Öffentlichkeit bekannt zu machen. Nach heftigen Protesten und einem polizeilichen Verbot der Lesungen ordnete Rousseau an, das Werk erst zu veröffentlichen, wenn er und seine Freunde tot seien. Diese schonungslose Generalbeichte und Selbstanalyse soll zu neuen Erkenntnissen über den menschlichen Charakter beitragen und ein Lehrbuch über den Menschen sein. Darüber hinaus stehen die "Bekenntnisse" am Beginn der modernen, stark subjektiven Autobiographie, und sie sind von nicht zu überschätzender Bedeutung für die Literatur der Romantik geworden. Im Anschluß sind die berühmten "Träume eines einsamen Spaziergängers" abgedruckt. - Kanten berieben.EUR 900,00 (inkl. 7,00% MwSt.) Versandkostenfrei innerhalb Deutschlands Weitere Abbildungen Aufgenommen mit whBOOK Artikel eingestellt mit dem w+h GmbH eBay-Service Daten und Bilder powered by Buchfreund (2020-03-21).

Berne: la Nouvelle Société typographique, 1782. 1782 1ed Revolutionary War Letters George Washington Cornwallis Clinton GermainGeorge Germain was an 18th-century British soldier who is known for his role in the American Revolutionary War. It has long been thought, whether earned or not, that he was responsible for the British defeat in the war. In 1781, confusion arose over orders given to Charles Cornwallis by Henry Clinton which ultimately caused the loss of the Battle of Yorktown. These bits of correspondence, along with many others, were included in this 1782 first French edition book 'Correspondence of Germain with Generals Clinton and Cornwallis'.

Beautifully bound in contemporary french crimson morocco, ornamental border on both covers, inside dentelles, all edges gilt, moire covered pastedowns -- probably the original publishers binding. - The exceedingly rare first edition of Delille's most celebrated and influential poem, in which the author celebrated the virtues of the natural garden or jardin anglais, rather than the fashion for neoclassical symmetry.

All later editions were published in octavo. -- Jacques Delille (1738-1813) was one of the great eighteenth-century French poets, and his works were much reprinted and translated. His influence on taste in gardening was significant, and he is also known for his translations into French of Virgil's Georgics and Milton's Paradise Lost, two great works with gardening themes. "Les Jardins" was a great success throughout Europe with English and German translations appearing quickly. -- occasionally browning at inner hinge, corners slightly rubbed -- an exceptional copy. // Edition originale de l'oeuvre la plus marquante de l'abbe Delille, deja celebre a son epoque pour ses traductions des Georgiques et du Paradis perdu.

CUMBERLAND, Richard (1732-1811).
London: printed for J. Walter, Charing-Cross, 1782. First Edition. Two volumes, 12mo (156 x 95 mm), pp. [iv], 225, [1], [2] index; [iv], 224, [1] index, [1], A handsome copy of this guide to Spanish art written by the dramatist and diplomat, Richard Cumberland. Public awareness of the art and artists of Spain was growing as travellers made comparisons with the work of the Italian masters. Collectors and dealers were beginning to look towards Spain as a new source of supply and Cumberland's detailed work was a great success. It was based in part on Cumberland's observations made in Spain and in part on Antonio Palomino's Vidas de los pintores y estatuarios eminentes españoles, which was translated into English in 1739. In 1780, Cumberland was sent on a confidential mission to Spain in order to negotiate a peace treaty during the American War of Independence that would weaken the anti-British coalition. Although he was well received by Charles III of Spain and his government, the sovereignty of Gibraltar proved insurmountable and Cumberland was forced to return to England empty handed. The government then refused to repay his expenses, even though he was out of pocket to the tune of £4500, a blow to his finances that he never really recovered from. One of the few positive results of his time in Spain was the research that he did for this book. 'I had already published in two volumes my Anecdotes of eminent Painters in Spain. I am flattered to believe', Cumberland wrote, 'it was an interesting and curious work to readers of a certain sort, for there had been no such regular hi … [Click Below for Full Description]

MORTON, John Latimer.]
London: printed and sold by James Phillips, 1782. FIRST EDITION. 8vo, pp. 34; with a half-title; twentieth century half brown morocco cloth boards; a very good copy. Morton, who writes from Wandsworth, begins with a reference to the Letter of Dr. Fothergill which had inspired him with a desire to visit the school. By 1782 Fothergill was dead but the school he had founded continued to flourish: 190 boys and 120 girls were now being educated there. Morton's main purpose in writing is to encourage further donations to the school. He also has a word or two on the curriculum; 'ingenuous lads, designed for carpenters, joiners and builders, might learn the first principles of geometry' and 'lads, who have a turn for fine writing' should not be discouraged as it might come in useful for those intending to become clerks. But such positions are oversubscribed and it is important not to give pupils ideas or expectations above their station; 'Farmers and mechanicks, with less temptation in their way, are more likely to become the more useful members of society.' Ackworth School continues to this day, and is one of eight English Quaker schools. OCLC records two copies in North America, at Minnesota and Swarthmore College.

Eyriès was an avid bibliophile; in 1795 he began to collect works related to travel and geography, and by the time of his death had amassed a library of over twenty thousand volumes, many now held in the municipal library of Le Havre. Due to his familiarity with geographic literature, his extensive scientific knowledge, and his ability as a translator, Eyriès not only became a founding member of the Société de Géographie, the world's oldest geographical society, but was also named its honorary president; he was also admitted to the Académie des Inscriptions et Belles-Lettres, and awarded the Legion of Honour.A mixture of anthropological and geographical allure appears to have drawn Eyriès to this volume; the translator of the first work writes of the people of St Kilda that 'leurs coutumes bizarres m'ont engagé à sacrificer quelques heures de mes loisirs à faire passer dans ma langue une … [Click Below for Full Description]

Les éditions se succèdent pour aboutir à l'édition de 1780 (troisième édition) qui est interdite et censurée par la faculté de théologie de Paris.

1782. Condition: Buone condizioni. Per l'età direi ottime, in ogni caso fanno fede le foto che sono parte integrante dell'offerta. STORIA DELLA LETTERATURA ITALIANA in TREDICI VOLUMI DEL CAVALIERE ABATE GIROLAMO TIRABOSCHI Per Luigi Perego Salvioni Stampator Vaticano nell'Archiginnasio della Sapienza Roma 1782-1784 Completa, solo l'ultimo volume è un poco diverso dagli altri alla copertina. VOLUME I, VOLUME II, VOLUME III, VOLUME IV, VOLUME V, VOLUME VI PARTI I E II, VOLUME VII PARTI I, II e III, VOLUME VIII, VOLUME IX E VOLUME X Con bellissima vignetta sulle prime pagine (allegoria della stella del mattino: una figura maschile con una stella splendente sul capo sorregge una fiaccola ardente e un cartiglio con la scritta: Novissimus exit) Raro (difficile da trovare completa e in queste condizioni) Nel 1770 Girolamo Tiraboschi ricevette da Francesco III d'Este, duca di Modena, la direzione della Biblioteca estense.
