        Physikalisch-anatomische Bemerkungen über den Biber, aus dem Lateinischen übersezt.

      Nürnberg, Gabriel Nicolaus Raspe, 1782. 4to (228 x 195 mm). pp. 31, (1), with 7 folded engraved plates. Contemporary boards. Christoph Gottwald(t) (1636-1700) was a German physician in Danzig and created one of the largest cabinets of curiosities of his time.

Like more of Gottwald's works publication was realized long after the author's death when the publisher Raspe purchased the manuscripts. Most famous of these publications is the 'Musei Gottwaldiani Testaceorum' published likewise in 1782 using the 17th century engraved plates. The present work is a German translation of the never published Latin text. The translation is by B.F. Hummel with annotations by Messerschmidt. Again the never used 17th century plates are used. These excellent plates are after drawing by the author./Library stamps on verso of title.//Nissen ZBI, 1657.

        A Collection of Poems

      London - J. Dodsley, 1782 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. Rebacked with leather spines and the original calf leatherboards laid down. Complete in six volumes and illustrated with engraved vignettes to title pages, head and tailpieces and some sheet music to the rear of volume IV. A charming anthology of poems. An important set in very good condition. Robert Dodsley (1703 - September 23, 1764) was an English bookseller and miscellaneous writer. He was born near Mansfield, Nottinghamshire, where his father was master of the free school. He is said to have been apprenticed to a stocking-weaver in Mansfield, from whom he ran away, going into service as a footman. In 1729 Dodsley published his first work, Servitude: a Poem written by a Footman, with a preface and postscript ascribed to Daniel Defoe; and a collection of short poems, A Muse in Livery, or the Footman's Miscellany, was published by subscription in 1732, Dodsley's patrons comprising many persons of high rank. This was followed by a satirical farce called The Toyshop (Covent Garden, 1735), in which the toymaker indulges in moral observations on his wares, a hint which was probably taken from Thomas Randolph's Conceited Pedlar. The profits accruing from the sale of his works enabled Dodsley to establish himself with the help of his friends--Alexander Pope lent him 100--as a bookseller at the Tully's Head in Pall Mall in 1735. Dodsley is, however, best known as the editor of two collections: Select Collection of Old Plays (12 vols. , 1744; 2nd edition with notes by Isaac Reed, 12 vols. , 1780; 4th edition, by William Carew Hazlitt, 1874-1876, 15 vols. ); and A collection of Poems by Several Hands (1748, 3 vols. ), which passed through many editions. In 1737 his King and the Miller of Mansfield, a dramatic tale of King Henry II, was produced at Drury Lane, and received with much applause; the sequel, Sir John Cockle at Court, a farce, appeared in 1738. Condition: The bindings are tight and firm and all covers are firmly attached. There is some minor wear tot he extremities, particularly tot he boards which are rubbed to the edges and bumped to the corners with some slight loss. Internally the books are generally clean and bright throughout apart from somemild spotting in places. There is an ownership plate to the front pastedown of each volume..

        CECILIA, OR MEMOIRS OF AN HEIRESS

      1782 - [BURNEY, Frances]. CECILIA, OR MEMOIRS OF AN HEIRESS. By the author of Evelina. In five volumes. London: Printed for T. Payne and Son at the Mews-Gate, and T. Cadell in the Strand, 1782. First edition. Five 12mo. volumes. [ii],293;263;365;328;398 pp. Worn contemporary bindings of quarter calf with marbled sides, decorative rules gilt-stamped to spines. Armorial bookplate of Thomas Philip Earl de Grey (1781-1859) in all volumes. In general, spines have darkened and are flaking in places; gilt- stamped spine numerals have dulled so that only one is still readable; and, only one volume retains its gilt-stamped black label on spine. In particular, the backstrip of Vol. 1 has a vertical split near the center, a chip at the crown, and has been glued down; its top board is nearly off and is attached by the sewing cords. Upper joints of Vols. 2 & 3 are starting. Text leaves show intermittent light foxing but are generally clean. One signature (B) in Vol. 2 is slightly sprung at the bottom. In Vol. 4, one leaf (E2, p. 99-100) is missing the bottom fore-corner (but all text is intact) and a few leaves in one signature (L) have a small puncture at the inner margin. One leaf (E7) in Vol. 5 has short closed tear in margin. The bindings are fragile but the bookblocks and text leaves are better than very good. (CBEL, ii, p. 527). Cecilia was Burney's second novel to be published anonymously and, like Evelina, it was both a critical and popular success. Among her contemporary admirers were Dr. Johnson, Edmund Burke, and Joshua Ryenolds. Her accute social observations and the touches of light comedy in her early work were a model for the succeeding generation of female writers, notably Maria Edgeworth and Jane Austen. It was in the concluding pages of Cecilia that Austen found the title of her first novel, Pride and Prejudice. (DNB).

        Illustrations de Voyages autour le monde (Atlas).

      Paris, Moutard, 1782. - Pierre Marie Fran?ois de Pag?s (1748 - 1793) war ein französischer Marineoffizier, Weltreisender und Schriftsteller. Nach Beendigung des Siebenjährigen Krieges und Entspannung der französisch-spanischen Rivalität in Nordamerika begab sich Pag?s auf eine Weltreise, die ihn zunächst durch Texas führte; im Juni 1767 segelte er nach New Orleans, befuhr den Mississippi und den Red River und durchquerte erneut Texas und Mexiko. Anschließend kehrte er über den Fernen Osten nach Frankreich zurück und schrieb einen Bericht über seine Abenteuer. Sein Buch "Voyages autour le monde", das auch ins Englische übersetzt wurde, kann als eine der ältesten europäischen Reisebeschreibungen über Texas gelten. Pag?s, zwischenzeitlich zum korrespondierenden Mitglied der Académie des Sciences ernannt, begleitete in den Jahren 1773/74 und 1776 Expeditionen zum Süd- und Nordpol.Später zog er sich auf seine Plantage im heutigen Haiti zurück; hier kam er 1793 bei einem Sklavenaufstand ums Leben.

(geb. 1691, 1763). Er wurde am 18. November 1740 zu Greifswald geboren, wo er am 28. Februar 1802 verstarb. Am 10. Mai 1763 ward er in Greifswald auf Grund seiner Inauguraldissertation: "De debito ex mercibus venditis residuo per novationem in mutuum gratuitum immutato jure praelationis ex jure Lubecensi non gaudente" zum Doctor beider Rechte promovirt und habilitirte sich bald darauf als Docent an der Universität, wählte jedoch später die praktische Laufbahn und ward ausübender Rechtsgelehrter. Als solcher setzte er die schriftstellerische Thätigkeit nicht nur in seiner Fachwissenschaft fort, sondern erwarb auch auf dem Gebiete pommerscher Geschichtsforschung hervorragende Verdienste, namentlich durch Herausgabe dreier Zeitschriften, "Pommersches Magazin", 1774-82, "Pommersches Museum", 1782-90, "Pommersche Mannigfaltigkeiten", 1796.

        Tab LXII Gladus Aeglefinus

      - A very detailed hand colored copperplate engraving of a fish by Marcus Elieser Bloch from his series "Ichtyologie, ou Histoire Naturelle, Generale et Particuliere des Poissons", published in Berlin: 1782-85; and Paris: 1785-97. Some of these prints were embellished with silver and gold . This print measures approximately 11” x 18 1/4". Bloch’s ambitious work is the most famous, and certainly the most remarkable of all books on fish. Published in twelve volumes, each of the 432 hand-colored illustrations is identified in several languages. Many of the plates bear dedications to the patrons who paid to have a particular plate engraved and included in the collection. Bloch made every effort to be comprehensive in this study, searching out species from “the four corners of the globe.” He attributes his success in this undertaking to the help of many individuals, including the Emperor Frederick the Great, who ordered all of his regional finance departments to send Bloch “.all the types of fish of their provinces and to include instructive remarks.” Bloch’s introduction goes on to thank numerous individuals for the fish that they sent him from Denmark, England, Guinea, Surinam, New York, the Malabar coast in India, and other locations. Bloch’s monumental work reflects the growing interest in fishing as a leisure activity in the 18th century. But the lavishness and sheer magnitude of this work transcend mere trend to reveal an artist who was passionately involved with his subject matter. The silver and gold touches Bloch employed to mimic the reflective qualities of fish scales lend a dramatic sparkle to many of these impressive and richly colored images. Bloch’s Ichthyologie is a highly important work, and one of the most engaging of all 18th-century natural history works. Overall this print is in very good condition with some light foxing and staining.

Smith-Burgess (1734 - 1803) was an officer in the East India Volunteers; he was created first Baronet of Eastham. county Essex in 1793 James Boswell records in his diary (22 July 1781) that he had read some of the book and referred to it "slightingly" to Adam Smith, whose assessment he noted: "Every man fails soonest in his weak part. Lord Kames's weak part is writing. Some write above their parts, some under them. Lord Kames writes much worse than one should expect from his conversation." One of Kames's 20th-century biographers was more enthusiastic about the work: William Lehmann in 1971 described it as a "most fascinating piece," adding "it is interesting for its insight into child psychology and advanced educational method.and even more, for what it reveals of Kames the man. Perhaps nothing he ever wrote reveals more of his personality, his understanding of human nature, his religious feelings, his concern for education." Zachs, The First John Murray (1998), 309.

        The Epigrams of M. Val. Martial, in Twelve Books: With a Comment: by James Elphinston.

      London: Printed by Baker and Galabin. 1782 - FIRST EDITION. 4to, 265 x 208 mms., pp. xxxviii, 574 [575 adverts, 576 blank], engraved portrait frontispiece, attractively rebound in half calf, marbled boards, gilt spine, morocco label; title-page and frontispiece a little foxed, as is errata leaf, but a handsome copy. Among the subscribers are Samuel Johnson and Adam Smith. Elphinston also managed to get a few other luminaries to subscribe, including Robert Adam, John Anderson, James Beattie, James Colquhoun of Luss (where is his copy?), Sir David Dalrymple, Sir Gilbert Elliot, Sir William Forbes, James Macpherson, Henry Mackenzie, John Millar, Lord Monboddo, William Richardson, William Robertson, Bonnell Thornton, and Alexander Fraser Tytler, many other pillars of the Scottish Enlightenment. Elphinston (1721 - 1809) was born and educated in Edinburgh, but this translation, despite the eminence of its subscribers, was ridiculed. One subscriber, Beattie, described it as a "whole quarto of nonsense and gibberish." Another subscriber was his brother-in-law, the printer William Strahan, who sent him a subscription of £50 and proposed to double that sum if he would not publish the work. No. 40 in the "Preliminary Handlist of Books to which Dr. Samuel Johnson Subscribed," by D. D. Eddy and J. D. Fleeman, Studies in Bibliography, 46 (1963), 187 - 220.

        Autograph musical manuscript signed of the Sonata in Eb Major for solo keyboard. Complete. No date, but ca. 1782 or later

      - The present manuscript is Viotti's arrangement of his Sonata for Violin and Bass (Giazotto no. 36), composed in Paris in 1782. While there are published editions of the version for violin and bass (see RISM V1940- V1946), there do not appear to be any published editions of this version for keyboard. A highly distinguished Italian violinist and composer, Viotti is regarded as "the most influential violinist between Tartini and Paganini and the last great representative of the Italian tradition stemming from Corelli. He is considered the founder of the ‘modern’ (19th- century) French school of violin playing, and his compositions, among the finest examples of Classical violin music, exerted a strong influence on 19th-century violin style." Chappell White in Grove online [1] (title), [2]-[8] pp. Folio (ca. 300 x 230 mm.). Unbound. Notated in ink on 16-stave music manuscript paper. The work is in three movements, the first, marked "Allegro," in 82 measures; the second 70 measures; and the third, marked "Rondeau Allegretto," in 210 measures. 14 measures cancelled. Overpaste corrections to a total of 10 measures, with several additional corrections.

        A Still Life with Grapes and Plums

      - Georgius Jacobus Johannes van Os, the Younger (Dutch, 1782-1861) A Still Life with Grapes and Plums Signed "G.J.J. v. Os" lower right Oil on canvas; 10” x 7 ¾” canvas size; 16 1/2” x 14 1/2” framed. Georgius van Os, a native of The Hague, was part of a very successful Dutch family of artists. The dynasty of artists was started by his father, Jan van Os (1744-1808), and included his brother Pieter Gerardus van Os (1776-1839), a painter and etcher, and his sister Maria Margaretha van Os (1780-1892), a still life and botanical painter. Georgius Jacobus Johannes van Os studied with his father and, like him, preferred to paint flower and fruit pieces, although he never neglected the landscape genre. Working in Amsterdam, his first important works were the detailed drawings of flowers and plants that were used to illustrate Jan Kops's Flora Batava (1800-22). In 1809 he won the first prize of the Felix Meritis Society in Amsterdam with a watercolor still life painting, after which he devoted himself exclusively to the painting of the genre of still life. The Paris Salon awarded him the gold medal in 1812. He later settled in Paris in 1826, where he worked at the Sèvres porcelain factory. This charming original oil on canvas is a splendid small study that exemplifies the van Os style of painting and is a thoughtful and romanticized interpretation of grapes and plums painted with great attention to its subjects.

        Adele et Theodore, ou Lettres sur l'Education; contenant tous les principes relatifs aux trios differens plans d'education des Princes, des jeunes personnes, & des hommes

      Paris: M. Lambert & F. J. Baudouin, 1782 First edition of this treatise on education, inspired by the ideas of Rousseau, cloaked in the guise of an epistolary novel. Though it has been often reprinted, the first edition is uncommon. Contemporary tree calf, gilt flat spines with red and brown morocco labels, edges sprinkled red. Three volumes, twelemo. . Some joints neatly repaired. A very good copy, complete with half-titles in Volumes I and II. Madame de Genlis (1746-1830) was born of a noble but impoverished Burgundian family. At the age of six she was received as a canoness into the noble chapter of Alix near Lyons, with the title of Madame la Comtesse de Lancy, taken from the town of Bourbon-Lancy. She was educated entirely at home. After she grew up, she married Charles Brillart de Genlis, marquis de Sillery, and she became determined to remedy her incomplete education and to satisfy her thirst for knowledge. Through the influence of her aunt, Madame de Montesson, who had been clandestinely married to the Duke of Orleans, she entered the Palais Royal as lady-in-waiting to the Duchess of Chartres (1770). She became governess to the daughters of the family, a role she took with great seriousness. She developed a number of ingenious educational theories, which she explained in several works, including Théatre d'education, Annales de la vertu, and the present work. She anticipated many modern methods of teaching. History was taught with the help of magic lantern slides, and botany was taught by a practical botanist during their walks. She was influenced by the educational theories of Rousseau, and she in turn influenced the Edgeworths.
