        Versuch einer Anleitung zur Composition 1. Ausgabe 3 Bände, SEHR SELTEN

      Leipzig, bey Adam Friedrich Böhme; Rudolf gedruckt mit Schriften der Löwischen Erben und Schirach , 1787,, 1793. 1782 - XVI, 374; VIII, 464; XII, 464 S. mit Notenbeispielen 8° Schlichte Pappbände der Zeit, Seiten der Bände an den Buchecken teils geknickt, Bd. 2 Seiten mit Feuchtrand, Bd. 2 Buchdeckel hinten mit Loch, insges. aber gut brauchbare Ex. ---- Bd.1, 1782, Von der Art und Weise wie Töne an und für sich betrachtet harmonisch verbunden werden und Vom Contrapuncte; Bd.2, 1787, Von der Art wie die Melodie in Rücksicht der mechanischen Regeln verbunden wird; Bd.3, 1793, Fortsetzung 'Von den mechanischen Regeln der Melodie': Von der Verbindung der melodischen Theile, oder von dem Baue der Perioden ------------ Heinrich Christoph Koch (* 10. Oktober 1749 in Rudolstadt; gest. 19. März 1816 ebenda) war ein deutscher Musiktheoretiker und -lexikograph. Sein Musiklexikon fand weite Verbreitung in Deutschland und Dänemark; heute bedient man sich seiner Form- bzw. Syntaxtheorie zur Analyse von Musik des 18. und 19. Jahrhunderts. Koch wirkte in seiner Jugend als Geiger in der Rudolstädter Hofkapelle, seit 1772 als Kammermusikus. Er bekam Geigen- und Kompositionsunterricht von Christian Gotthelf Scheinpflug und studierte vorübergehend in Weimar, Dresden, Berlin und Hamburg. Danach verbrachte er den Rest seines Lebens in Rudolstadt. 1792 wurde er zum Kapellmeister ernannt, kehrte aber nach einem Jahr freiwillig zur ersten Geige zurück. Danach war er weiterhin als Komponist und Musikschriftsteller aktiv. 1818 wurde er von der schwedischen Musikakademie, die über seinen Tod nicht informiert war, zum Mitglied gewählt. Sein Musiklexikon (1802) war das einflussreichste nach dem von Johann Gottfried Walther (1732) und vor den Enzyklopädien von Schilling (1835-38) und Mendel/Reissmann (1870-83); es fasst den Wissensbestand des Barock und der Frühklassik zusammen. Sein "Versuch einer Anleitung zur Komposition" behandelt erstmals ausführlich und systematisch Harmonie-, Melodie- und Satzbau und ist damit der bedeutendste Vorläufer der (allerdings abweichenden) diesbezüglichen Theorien Hugo Riemanns. Abgesehen von den Notenbeispielen in seinen theoretischen Werken sind Kochs kompositorische Werke verschollen, darunter Kantaten, ein Singspiel Die Stimme der Freude in Hygeens Haine (1790), Instrumental- und geistliche Musik.

        El Ingenioso Hidalgo don Quixote de la Mancha, compuesto por. Nueva edición, corregida por la Real Academia Española

      Madrid, por Don Joachin Ibarra Impresor de Cámara de S.M. y de la Real Academia 1782 - 8º (15,9 x 10 cm.) 4 vols. I: Port., vi-ccclxv-280 p., 6 láminas inc. retrato y un gran mapa plegado. II: Port., iv-602 p. 6 láminas. III: Port., xxi-437 p., 6 láminas. IV: Port., vi-492 p. 6 láminas. Plena piel marmoleada de época, greca dorada en ambos planos, lomos lisos, hilos y hierros dorados, tejuelo rojo: don quixote. Segunda edición de la Real Academia. Buen ejemplar, completo, con su encuadernación original. Pequeñas manchas de oxidación en algunas hojas. “Dos años después de la edición académica que termina de imprimir Joaquín Ibarra en 1780, la Real Academia Española publica una nueva edición del Quijote, en un formato menor: cuatro volúmenes en 8º. Las razones de la reducción del formato se explican en el prólogo: “El general aplauso con que fue recibida la edición de Don Quixote publicada por la Academia en quatro tomos en cuarto real el año de 1780, la hizo pensar desde luego en repetir la impresión, de suerte que el Público pudiese tenerla por un precio moderado, respecto a que el de la primera no pudo ser tan cómodo como la Academia hubiera querido, por el grande costo que tuvo”. Pero esta edición de 1782 no ha de entenderse como una simple reducción de formato de la primera, ya que se modificará también el texto crítico y el programa iconográfico. Para la edición del texto, se tuvieron en cuenta diversas ediciones, que en el prólogo se especifican: “La corrección se ha hecho con igual cuidado que en la grande. Para la primera parte se tuvieron presentes la primera edición hecha en Madrid por Juan de la Cuesta el año de 1605, y la segunda hecha también en Madrid y por el mismo impresor año de 1608. El texto se arregló a la primera, y se conservaron las variantes de la segunda, aun aquella que no son subtanciales, y que solo varían en la pronunciación por la mudanza o substracción de alguna letra [.] La segunda parte de ella no la publicó Cervantes hasta diez años después de la primera. Para su corrección se tuvieron presentes la primera hecha en Madrid por Juan de la Cuesta año de 1615, y la segunda hecha en Valencia por Pedro Patricio Mey año de 1616. El texto se arregló a la de Madrid, y se conservaron las variantes de la de Valencia”. Por su parte, se introduce un nuevo programa iconográfico compuesto de 24 estampas, todas ellas dibujadas por Isidro y Antonio Carnicero, y grabadas por distintos maestros. Como también sucediera en la edición de 1780, la Real Academia Española eligió los motivos, teniendo en cuenta que no coincideran con los aparecidos en 1780: “La Academia con el deseo de publicar quanto antes esta edición y poderla dar con la mayor comodidad posible, había pensado hacerla sin láminas. Pero reflexionando después, que acaso no parecería bien al Público, acostumbrado ya a aver siempre la Historia de D. Quixote con láminas, resolvió ponérselas, y que fuesen bien trabajadas, a cuyo fin se valio para los dibujos de Don Isidoro y Don Antonio Carnicero, Profesores que tienen bien acreditada su habilidad, y para el grabado de los mas diestros grabadores, cuyos nombres se ven en las mismas láminas [.] Para los asuntos de estas [.] parecio conveniente no repetir las que se pusieron en la edición grande, y así se han variado en esta casi todas a excepción de una ú otra, creyendo que esta variedad no será desagradable al Público”. “ [Don Quijote en el Campus.

        Della influenza del ghetto nello Stato.

      Venezia, dalle stampe di Gaspare Storti, 1782.In - 8°; 144 pp., 4 carte (ultima bianca). Bella legatura coeva in tutta pelle con fregi a secco ai piatti, tagli dorati. Questa tipologia di legature è riconducibile all'area trentino - tirolese, alcune tracce di colore rivelano la primitiva argentatura di alcune sue parti. Ottimo esemplare. Prima edizione rara conservata in una raffinata legatura coeva. Opera importante che apre una discussione sul ruolo del ghetto ebraico nell'economia. L'autore, convinto propugnatore della libertà di commercio, avanzava dei dubbi sulla posizione di monopolio esercitata dai mercanti ebrei del ghetto e si dichiarava favorevole ad una maggior integrazione della comunità ebraica e ad una maggior collaborazione economica. G. B. Vasco (1739 - 1791), grande ammiratore di Montesquieu, fu amico di Condorcet che conobbe a Parma e in rapporto con i più noti illuministi, fu vicino alle posizioni dei fisiocratici mantenendo però sempre la massima attenzione allo sviluppo commerciale ed industriale. Le sue opere economiche furono pubblicate nella raccolta "Scrittori classici italiani di economia politica" curata dal Custodi, nel 1803 - 1805. Manca alla Kress, alla biblioteca Einaudi e alla biblioteca Mattioli. C. Vivanti, DBI III (1961), pp. 789 - 793.

        Unsigned, Intriguing, and Possibly Secret, Manuscript Note Concerning the Treaty of Paris 1782-1783

      No Binding. Very Good. small folio, one page, formerly folded, top edge lightly browned, else very good. Text neatly inscribed in ink on laid paper. The sheet, judging from the fold marks was evidently folded into a very small triangle of just over an inch in size, possibly for easy concealment and transmittal. he present document is both intriguing and curious it discusses the Treaty of Paris and contains information which poses several intriguing questions: the document states that Peace would be signed on the 19th at six o'clock in the evening and with conditions which differed somewhat from the terms of the final treaty. The preliminary articles of peace were not signed until November 30, 1782, the final Treaty ending the War was signed on September 3, 1783. The terms mentioned in this manuscript differ from the final document. The questions posed by this document are: Does the present document discuss a preliminary draft? Is it incorrect or secretly transmitted information from the private negotiations? Is it deliberate misinformation? The document reads: "La paix a eté signé le 19 a six heures du soir, en vois les conditions - Les anglois rendent Gibraltar aux Espagnoles et rentrens sa possession de mexique quis repoussant pas fortfiee aux Antilles nous rend aux anglois la Grenade et St. Christophe, ils nous rendent Ste Lucie et tabago, St. Eustache revient aux holandais, nous aurons la moitié du Banc de Terre Neuve pour la peche de la marine nous gardons en Afrique les establissement sur la Riviere du Senegal et L'isle de Gorée dans L'inde pondichery a nous, madras aux anglois qui repoussant avoie qu'un seul comptoir sur la cote de Malabare Le commerce et deveniere libre sur toute les mers et les etats unis de L'Amerique recouvrer independent; La France pourra entretenir en tenir de paix vingt vaisseaux de Guerre rrive a l'Engleterre quinze seulement" The Definitive Treaty of Peace was signed at Paris, September 3, 1783. This treaty between Great Britain and the United States marked the final consummation of American independence. Coincidentally were signed peace treaties between Great Britain and each of two other belligerents, France, the ally of the United States, and Spain, the ally of France. A preliminary peace between Great Britain and the Netherlands (no one's ally) had been signed on September 2, 1783. The definitive treaties marked the end of a complicated negotiation in Paris between Great Britain and her several enemies, begun in March, 1782, by the Rockingham Ministry, and continued by the government of Lord Shelburne through its agent, Richard Oswald, who had conducted the American negotiation from the first, and other British diplomatic officers. It was featured by the separately negotiated preliminary and conditional articles of peace between the United States and Great Britain, signed Nov. 30, 1782, which were not to go into effect until peace should be signed between the American ally France, and the common enemy, Great Britain. France, in turn, deferred her peace until her ally, Spain, should have also reached a settlement with Great Britain. The French and Spanish preliminaries were signed on Jan. 2, 1783, on which date the American preliminaries went into effect, and a general armistice took place pending signature of a final and definitive treaty of peace. The three sets (Anglo-American, Anglo- French and Anglo-Spanish) of preliminary articles of peace were thus in the nature of armistice agreements which accompanied a cessation of hostilities but did not end the legal state of war. The definitive treaties, which ended the war, were deferred for several months in the hope of securing more concessions from the British, and to give the Dutch time to make a satisfactory peace with Great Britain. The Anglo-Dutch preliminary articles of peace were signed on Sept. 2, 1783, and the next day the definitive treaties American, Fr

Après la Louisianne, Pagès traversa le Texas en quittant son vaisseau à Santo Domingo, il voyagea sur le Mississipi. Il s'agit de la plus ancienne description du Texas connu dans un livre de langue anglaise (lorsque le livre fut traduit). Pagès traversa le Mexique, puis se rendit aux Phillipine et à Java, à Bombay et à Surate, enfin dans l'Arabie, remontant jusqu'à Saint-Jean d'Acre. Les voyages se firent aussi bien par terre que par mer, et l'auteur a glané nombres d'observations sur les coutumes et les moeurs des peuples qu'il a cotoyé. Le second volume est consacré aux deux voyages, vers le pôle sud (considérations sur les hottentots, la Réunion) puis nord. [AUTOMATIC ENGLISH TRANSLATION FOLLOWS] First edition, illustrated with 10 boards inset, including 7 large folding maps, a dismemberment of sea whales. All boards are found in the second volume in fine except for the folding plate of whale dismemberment. The book includes the relationship of three trips. Volume 1 describes the travel Circumnavigation qu'effectua Pagès by the west for 4 years. After Louisiana, Texas Pagès crossed in leaving his ship in Santo Domingo, he traveled on the Mississippi. This is the earliest known description of Texas in an English-language book (when the book was translated). Pagès crossed Mexico, then went to the Phillipine and Java, in Mumbai and Surat, finally in Arabia, dating back to Saint John of Acre. Travel is also made by land and by sea, and the author has gleaned number of observations about the customs and manners of the people he has rubbed. The second volume is dedicated to two trips to the south pole (considerations of the Hottentots, the meeting) then north. 432pp. et 272pp. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      1782-95 1782 - One of the finest works on both German and foreign fishes ever produced. The plates were by a variety of artists and engravers and are outstandingly coloured: heightened with gold, silver, and bronze to produce the metallic sheen of the fish scales. The work was subsidised by nobility, scientific institutions and wealthy individuals. In addition the names of the fishes are given in several languages. Bloch was born in Anspach and practised as a phyisician in Berlin. He devoted himself to natural history and wrote several works of which this is the most famous.

        Traité complet de la culture des orangers et des Citronniers.

      Paris: Lamy, 1782. - 12mo., (5 ¼ x 3 ¼ inches). Contemporary full mottled calf, the smooth spine in six gilt-ruled compartments, maroon morocco gilt lettering piece in one and gilt-tooled in the rest, all edges speckled (hinges starting, extremities worn with loss). Provenance: With the pictorial bookplate of H. Pasquier to the front pastedown. ?Second edition, first published in ?1692. A treatise on the cultivation of orange and lemon trees. Pierre Morin, along with his brother René, was one of the most notable 17th-century flower traders and nurserymen. He was well known for his oval-shaped garden, which was written about by many of his contemporaries. "Pierre Morin published his first trade catalogue in 1651. It contained a list of names and descriptions of the bulbs then flowering in his garden that he was able to supply for sale. Morin then, as nurserymen today, intended his catalogue for customers living at a distance, who were unable to view the growing flowers for themselves, to show what he had on offer. It contained 100 named varieties of tulip, 24 ranunculi, 71 bulbous irises and 27 anemones, both double and single varieties, all among the most fashionable flower of the day. He updated the catalogue in 1655, when he had it reprinted, rearranging and enlarging the previous lists, and adding many more anemones. This was again reprinted in 1658 when, on the final page, he announced that he now had many more rare plants, of which he had not yet had time to make detailed lists, as they had only come to him recently on the death of his brother René, whom he described as having been 'as curious as any in all Europe' "On 4 April 1644 [diarist John Evelyn] wrote that Morin was 'a person who from an ordinary Gardner, is ariv'd to be one of the most skillfull & Curious Persons of France for his rare collection of Shells, Flowers & Insects. His Garden is of an exact Oval figure planted with Cypresse, cut flat & set as even as a Wall could have form'd it: The Tulips, Anemonies, Ranunculus's, Crocus's &c. being of the most exquisite, were held for the rarest in the World'" (Prudence Leith-Ross, "A Seventeenth-Century Paris Garden").

        REFLEXIONES IMPARCIALES SOBRE LA HUMANIDAD DE LOS ESPAÑOLES EN LAS INDIAS, CONTRA LOS PRETENDIDOS FILOSOFOS Y POLITICOS

      Madrid: Por D. Joachin Ibarra..., 1782. Large quarto. Contemporary red morocco, tooled in gilt with coat of arms stamped in gilt on cover, blue watered silk endpapers, a.e.g. Lightly rubbed at extremities, some minor staining to boards. Small bookplate on front pastedown. Minor staining to last few text leaves. Negligible foxing. Else very good. The first Spanish edition, translated from the original Italian written by an exiled Spanish Jesuit. Nuix weighs in on the controversy surrounding Spanish treatment of the native population in the Americas. Though he recognizes the violence perpetrated against the Indians, he defends Spanish colonialism as a grand and greater good brought to the Americas. This is a large paper copy of this important work, bound in full red morocco especially for Charles III, King of Spain (1759-88). The covers are stamped with the royal coat of arms. A discrete 19th-century bookplate of the Baroness Rothschild adorns the front pastedown, showing the embossed arms of the Rothschild family. Large paper copies of this work are exceedingly rare, and certainly none have so fine a provenance as this. PALAU 196692. SABIN 56309. MEDINA 5007.

        Unsigned, Intriguing, and Possibly Secret, Manuscript Note Concerning the Treaty of Paris 1782-1783

      - small folio, one page, formerly folded, top edge lightly browned, else very good. Text neatly inscribed in ink on laid paper. The sheet, judging from the fold marks was evidently folded into a very small triangle of just over an inch in size, possibly for easy concealment and transmittal. he present document is both intriguing and curious it discusses the Treaty of Paris and contains information which poses several intriguing questions: the document states that Peace would be signed on the 19th at six o¿clock in the evening and with conditions which differed somewhat from the terms of the final treaty. The preliminary articles of peace were not signed until November 30, 1782, the final Treaty ending the War was signed on September 3, 1783. The terms mentioned in this manuscript differ from the final document. The questions posed by this document are: Does the present document discuss a preliminary draft? Is it incorrect or secretly transmitted information from the private negotiations? Is it deliberate misinformation? The document reads: ¿La paix a eté signé le 19 a six heures du soir, en vois les conditions ¿ Les anglois rendent Gibraltar aux Espagnoles et rentrens sa possession de mexique quis repoussant pas fortfiee aux Antilles nous rend aux anglois la Grenade et St. Christophe, ils nous rendent Ste Lucie et tabago, St. Eustache revient aux holandais, nous aurons la moitié du Banc de Terre Neuve pour la peche de la marine nous gardons en Afrique les establissement sur la Riviere du Senegal et L¿isle de Gorée dans L¿inde pondichery a nous, madras aux anglois qui repoussant avoie qu¿un seul comptoir sur la cote de Malabare Le commerce et deveniere libre sur toute les mers et les etats unis de L¿Amerique recouvrer independent; La France pourra entretenir en tenir de paix vingt vaisseaux de Guerre rrive a l¿Engleterre quinze seulement¿ The Definitive Treaty of Peace was signed at Paris, September 3, 1783. This treaty between Great Britain and the United States marked the final consummation of American independence. Coincidentally were signed peace treaties between Great Britain and each of two other belligerents, France, the ally of the United States, and Spain, the ally of France. A preliminary peace between Great Britain and the Netherlands (no one¿s ally) had been signed on September 2, 1783. The definitive treaties marked the end of a complicated negotiation in Paris between Great Britain and her several enemies, begun in March, 1782, by the Rockingham Ministry, and continued by the government of Lord Shelburne through its agent, Richard Oswald, who had conducted the American negotiation from the first, and other British diplomatic officers. It was featured by the separately negotiated preliminary and conditional articles of peace between the United States and Great Britain, signed Nov. 30, 1782, which were not to go into effect until peace should be signed between the American ally France, and the common enemy, Great Britain. France, in turn, deferred her peace until her ally, Spain, should have also reached a settlement with Great Britain. The French and Spanish preliminaries were signed on Jan. 2, 1783, on which date the American preliminaries went into effect, and a general armistice took place pending signature of a final and definitive treaty of peace. The three sets (Anglo-American, Anglo- French and Anglo-Spanish) of preliminary articles of peace were thus in the nature of armistice agreements which accompanied a cessation of hostilities but did not end the legal state of war. The definitive treaties, which ended the war, were deferred for several months in the hope of securing more concessions from the British, and to give the Dutch time to make a satisfactory peace with Great Britain. The Anglo-Dutch preliminary articles of peace were signed on Sept. 2, 1783, and the next day the definitive treaties American, Fr

(Errata) Zweite und beste Auflage dieses Klassikers der Schachliteratur. - ". welches er nachher in einet zweiten Auflage noch vermehrte und bedeutend verbesserte. Das Ganze zerfällt in drei Theile, deren erster allgemeine Regeln und eine schätzenswerte Kritik der bekannten Autoren jener Zeit enthält.

Diese zweite Modeneser Auflage gilt als die beste." (Anton Schmid, Literatur des Schachspiels. Wien 1847. S. 276). - "The second edition in 1782 was much improved and laid out the principles of the Italian school of chess as exemplified by 17th-century Italian masters such as Gioachino Greco. Although Ponziani identified himself in the second edition, the 1820 translation by English naval officer J. B. Smith using the pen name J. S. Bingham, The Incomparable Game of Chess, attributed the work to del Rio. Ponziani`s work is the best practical guide produced by the Modenese Masters" (Wikipedia vom 29.07.2015). - Titel gestempelt.

First edition of volumes 4-6, new edition of volumes 1-3, engraved frontispiece portrait by Hall after Reynolds, 3 maps (2 folding), half titles to volumes 2-6, errata leaf in volume 6, small water stain to lower blank margin of volume 1, a few spots to endpapers otherwise exceptionally clean internally, contemporary diced russia gilt, volume 6 unnumbered (assume, quirky binder's error), natural age-wear making a very handsome set. Decline and Fall ranks as a "masterpiece of historical penetration and literary style and has remained one of the ageless historical works which. maintain their hold upon the layman and continue to stimulate the scholar" (PMM). Gibbon was fortunate in the choice of his publisher, William Strahan, friend of Dr. Johnson, Benjamin Franklin, and David Hume who, with Cadell also published Adam Smith and James Macpherson.

        Briefe an einem philosophischen Zweifler in Beziehung auf Hume's Gespräche, das System der Natur, und ähnliche Schriften. Aus dem Englischen. Leipzig: Weygand, 1782.

      - First German edition of Priestley's Letters to a Philosophical Unbeliever (Bath, 1780; Chuo 179). There are fourteen letters, ostensibly written to a person who has approached Priestley for guidance. Letter 1 in the original begins 'Dear Sir, I am sorry to find that, in consequence of the books you have lately read, and of the company you have been obliged to keep, especially on your travels, you have found your mind unhinged with respect to the first principles of religion, natural as well as revealed. You wish me to attempt the solution of the difficulties ', which gives Priestley a pretext for attacking Hume in particular. The anonymous translator writes in the foreword that Priestley has misunderstood Hume, a view echoed the following year by Kant in the Prolegomena where he famously denounced Priestley along with Reid, Oswald and Beattie as having entirely missed Hume's point on causation. Kant did not read English, so this must have been the edition in which he read Priestley, there being no other German translation of his writings at the time. WorldCat locates only one copy, at Universitätsbibliothek München. PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: 8vo, 270, [2] pp., contemporary tree calf, rubbed, upper cover worn with loss, lower cover wormed, spine gilt in compartments with morocco label, edges red, decorative endpapers with armorial bookplate of the Austrian politician Egbert Belcredi (1816-94), small library stamp of the same family at foot of title-page, isolated spots, a good copy of a very rare book.

        A.L.S. to John Brown ("Care of Governor Hancock, Boston").

      Philadelphia Small 4to (9" x 7.5'). 1 p., with integral address leaf.. 16 April 1782 Crawford was a Philadelphia merchant and in this letter to a corresponding merchant in Boston, he begins by discussing an insurance matter that requires Brown's attention. Then he writes: nothing new since my last, except Capt. Barney in the ship Hyder Aly taking the King ship Monk of 10 nine pounders, in an action of 30 minutes. The Hyder Aly mounted 6 nines & 10 sixes, there never was more execution done by the same force in the same time. The Monk had every officer except two, killed or wounded, amongst the latter was the Capt. She had in all 21 kill'd & 32 wounded. The Hyder Aly had 4 kill'd & 11 wounded, from such slaughter no doubt you'd conclude one of them boarded, but it was not the case, a fair action within pistol shot. Although the land battles of the American Revolution had ended with the surrender at Yorktown, sea battles continued until receipt of the signing of the Treaty of Paris. The account above refers to Comm. Joshua Barney's capture on 8 April off Cape May, NJ, of the sloop of war General Monk. In a wonderful twist of fate, the intrepid Barney had only arrived in Philadelphia in March — having been occupied since the previous May with his escape, recapture, and second escape from Portsmouth prison! into which stronghold he had been clapped by the British for his previous maritime (infr)actions. Having, then, been given command of the Hyder Ally (a.k.a., Hyder Ali) only a few weeks previously, and having been charged with clearing the Delaware River and Bay of privateers, Barney had met the General Monk while pursuing that task — and, in a Revolutionary War naval action eclipsed only by that of the Bon Homme Richard and the Serapis, took on and thoroughly defeated a King's ship of superior firepower in a bloody, 26-minute battle. Following this capture of the General Monk, Congress voted Barney a sword for his gallantry and offered him command of his prize after renaming her General Washington. In November, 1782, he was ordered to sail to France in the Washington with dispatches for Benjamin Franklin who was negotiating the Treaty of Paris. He returned with news of the signing of the preliminary peace treaty and with money from the French. => Barney was an American Hornblower! Very good condition. Small blank portion of the integral address leaf torn with loss where the sealing wax was attached. Old dealer's (Sessler's) coding in pencil at base of letter.

As such Pags took part in no less than three separate voyages, the first being travels in the Louisiana Territory, Texas and Mexico before sailing to Guam, returning to France via the Philippines, Java, India, Persia, Syria, and Lebanon. He subsequently joined Yves-Joseph de KerguŽlen-TrŽmarec's second expedition towards the South Pole (1773-4), a disastrous attempt to colonize the Kerguelen Islands discovered on the first expedition. The first 115pp. of Vol. II are devoted to this voyage, and the remainder of the volume comprise describes PagŽs' account of his 1776 "Voyage vers le Pole nord" on a whaling ship to Spitsbergen. He offers a description of the Spitsbergen region, of whales and whaling, and of the voyage itself. Berne 1783; Dutch translation, Rotterdam 1784; Swedish translation, Uppsala 1788; Sabin 58168; Spence 887; Howgego, Encyclopedia of Exploration to 1800, p783.P8; Ñ not in Arctic Bibliography. "Pierre-Marie Franois De Pags, French seaman, traveler and scientist (1748-93). Born in Toulouse, je entered the navy as midshipman in 1764, and by 1767 had been promoted to second lieutenant. While stationed at Saint-Dominque (Haiti), PagŽs apparently received a commission to discover a northwest passage by way of the eastern coast of Asia. He started out in 1767 by first sailing to New Orleans, then making his way up the Mississippi and Red River arrived at Natchitoches, where he stayed for some time. He proceeded across Texas on horseback to San Antonio, and then through Mexico to Acapulco. From there he sailed to Guam and the Philippines, and returned to Marseille on 5.9.1771 by way of Bombay, Mesopotamia (Iraq) and Palestine. After some difficulties he was reinstated in the navy on 9.3.1772. PagŽs' Voyage autour du Monde also contains an account of his adventures with the unsuccessful second voyage of YVES-JOSEPH DE KERGUELEN-GTREMAREC toward the South Pole in search of "Terra Australis Incognita" as well as his experiences on an expedition of a Dutch whaler to Spitzbergen, with a detailed account of whaling and the natural history of the whale. After being imprisoned twice in ice-fields he made it back to Amsterdam on 15.8.1777, but the fatigues and hardships endured on his journeys had impaired his health; he retired from the navy in 1782, and, returning to Saint-Dominique, settled on an estate belonging to his wife, a creole. His final years were devoted to scientific research, and at the time of his death he had in preparation a number of important works on America. PagŽs was a member of several learned societies, and in 1872 was created a knight of St. Louis. He was unfortunately murdered during the insurrection of the slaves in 1793. The veracity of some or all of his journeys has been regarded by bibliographers with suspicion, but, needless to say, his Voyage autour du Monde made very popular reading".Ñ Howgego.
