        Gemeinnützige Philadelphische Correspondenz. 6 Hefte.

      Philadelphia, M. Steiner 1782-1784.. 2° (27 x 43 cm). Je 1 Doppelbl. (unpag.). Zum Tl. m. stärkeren Gebrauchsspuren; 2 Nrn. unvollständig vorhanden (jeweils 1 Bl. nur etwa zum Viertel erhalten); alle Hefte m. Knickspur, randrissig (bzw. m. Ausrißen), angestaubt u. vereinz. fleckig; Papier gebräunt.. Interessantes Dokument der deutschen Presse Amerikas. Sammlung von 6 Heften dieses äußerst seltenen und kaum nachzuweisenden, für die deutschen Siedler in Philadelphia und die umliegenden Gebiete, zunächst als Wochenschrift herausgegebenen Periodikums. Mit Unregelmäßigkeiten erschien die 1781 gegründete Zeitschrift fast 30 Jahre lang (später unter dem Titel: "Neue Philadelphische Correspondenz"). Die erfolgreichste Periode hatte sie während der ersten Dekade ihres Bestehens, als der Buchdrucker Melchior Steiner (gest. 1807 ?) die Herausgabe besorgte; ihm folgten die beiden lutherischen Pfarrer und Professoren der "Philadelphia Academy" Reverend J. C. Kunze und Rev. J. H. C. Helmuth als Herausgeber nach. Enthalten sind neben Nachrichten aus aller Welt vor allem Annoncen von und für Mitglieder der deutschen Siedlergemeinschaft. Pennsylvania, das bis zur Amerikanischen Revolution 1776 den höchsten Anteil an deutschsprachigen Einwohnern aufwies, war der Ausgangspunkt für den Gebrauch einer hochdeutschen Schriftsprache. Bereits ab 1728 wurde eine Vielzahl an kleineren deutschsprachigen Publikationen gedruckt. Im Jahr 1776 eröffnete die deutsche Druckerei von Melchior Steiner und Carl Cist, die durch ihre Veröffentlichungen u.a. die Unabhängigkeitbewegung unterstützten und ihre Landsleute für den Kampf gegen die englische Kolonialmacht motivieren wollten. - Vorliegend: Nr.59 vom 12. Juni 1782; Nr.? wohl Juli 1782; Nr.140 vom 30. Dez. 1783; Nr.135 vom 25. Nov. 1783; Nr.142 vom 13. Jän. 1784 u. Nr.148 vom 24. Febr. 1784. English description on request.

Recent green half morocco, spine in 6 compartments with green gilt lettered label. The first edition was publised in 1776. The present copy is the second edition and has more plates (colour chart and portrait) than called for in the collation given by Linsley./A beautifully illustrated work on English insects with the text in English and French. Moses Harris was one of the founder members of the Aurelians, a London society of butterfly collectors. "He was, it is believed, the first to draw attention to the importance of wing neuration in the classification of lepidoptera and upon this principle he arranged the species in his published works, illustrating them in colour with a high degree of accuracy. Harris certainly contributed much to the knowledge of the science and was one of the leading entomologists of his century" (Lisney p. 156). The excellent plates are drawn and engraved by the author and superbly handcoloured. Quite a number of issues appeared of the above work, all with slight variations. Plate 21 with paper restoration at the lower margin with no loss of illustration.//Lisney. A bibliography of British Lepidoptera no. 242; Nissen ZBI, 1838.

        Troisieme Voyage de Cook

      Paris: Pissot and Laporte, 1782. Octavo, engraved folding frontispiece and map; preliminary leaves a little thumbed, old paper repair to final leaf, a good copy in gilt quarter calf retaining original boards (backstrip faithfully renewed in period style). First French printing of the discovery of Hawaii. First French edition of this important alternative account of Cook's third voyage. John Rickman was a lieutenant on the voyage: his anonymously published account first appeared in English in 1781; in the same year Zimmermann's narrative was also published, in French and German. It is not certain whether Rickman or Zimmermann was the first to appear in print, and thus to be responsible for the first description of the third voyage and the discovery of Hawaii to be published.Rickman's description of the voyage, which predates the official account by three years, differs from it in many respects - particularly regarding the death of Cook, for which this is a prime source. The engraved frontispiece is closely based on the London edition's engraving of Cook's death at Kealakekua Bay, which was the first representation of Hawaii to appear in print. This is an example of the second state identified by Forbes with a colophon identifying the printer.

GÜSSMANN, Franz (1741-1806), a Jesuit physician in Lemberg and Professor of Natural History at University of Vienna, published a couple of interesting books on astronomical and mineralogical themes.

He was supported in this hypothesis by the German scientist Franz Chladni (1756-1827), but it was nevertheless well over 100 years before the theory was finally accepted, following the impact of the Tunguska metorite in 1908. This work deals with creation and the age of the earth and its inhabitants. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        The Geographical Magazine; or, a New, Copious, Compleat, and Universal System of Geography Containing: An accurate and entertaining Account and Description of the several Continents, Islands, Peninsulas, Isthmuses, Capes, Promontories, Lakes, Rivers, Seas, Oceans, Gulphs, and Bays, of Asia, Africa, Europe, and America; Divided into Empires, Kingdoms, State

      London: Printed for Harrison and Co., 1782. lxiv, 772p., printed on mouldmade paper throughout, copper-engraved maps and plates (these struck on slightly heavier paperstock and in quite good condition), title page is rubricated. Hardbound in polished calf boards with leather labels gilt and raised bands, all edges tinted; the first edition. A sound copy with one major cosmetic flaw, that head and tail have been reinforced with old inch-wide brown adhesive tape: holding rather well in fact, and, because the tape is the right shade of brown, not too very startling. Bound in a well-tanned hide: extremities show a little card and a lot of abrasion, half the top rim is gone (an eighth inch deep, revealing one of the cords (or a substantial headband), labels are dim but easily legible. Hinges are strong pace a mild crack to front hinge, joints not split (we didn't peek under the tape), endsheets appear intact, there are no blanks but no sign of any removals; a cleanly copy, the only marks of any kind are a bookseller's penciled paragraph on front free endpaper. Endsheet margins are toned (binder's paste creep), foredge foxed with some migration, occasional foxing throughout the textblock and inserted maps and plates. Paperstock is mildly waved, an effect common with fascicles of mouldmade stock . None of the folded maps appear mis-folded; one, the East Indies, is started a sixteenth of an inch and has been strengthened with two inches of old document tape. Every plate and map is foxed to some extent, few egregiously (pp.733-744 the worst); and --not least-- the images show off the copperplate engraver's art to good advantage. Eight folded maps include New map of the world excluding all modern discoveries; New map of world in three sections; New map of Asia; New map of Turky in Asia; New map of Persia; New map of East Indies; New map of China; New map of Africa. Twenty-six full-page plates including frontispiece; three full-page maps. A good copy.

        Troisieme Voyage de Cook.

      Pissot and Laporte, Paris 1782 - Octavo, engraved folding frontispiece and map; preliminary leaves a little thumbed, old paper repair to final leaf, a good copy in gilt quarter calf retaining original boards (backstrip faithfully renewed in period style). First French printing of the discovery of Hawaii. First French edition of this important alternative account of Cook's third voyage. John Rickman was a lieutenant on the voyage: his anonymously published account first appeared in English in 1781; in the same year Zimmermann's narrative was also published, in French and German. It is not certain whether Rickman or Zimmermann was the first to appear in print, and thus to be responsible for the first description of the third voyage and the discovery of Hawaii to be published. Rickman's description of the voyage, which predates the official account by three years, differs from it in many respects - particularly regarding the death of Cook, for which this is a prime source. The engraved frontispiece is closely based on the London edition's engraving of Cook's death at Kealakekua Bay, which was the first representation of Hawaii to appear in print. This is an example of the second state identified by Forbes with a colophon identifying the printer. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

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).
