General LLoyd und G. F. Tempelhof (Übersetzung)
Berlin, Johann Friedrich Unger, 1783. XXIV, 342 (1) Seiten VI, (2) 387 (3) (2), 384 (1) (2), 332 (2), 382 (1) 293 Seiten, 8, oranger Pp der Zeit mit schwarzem Rücken- und Deckelschild Einbände teils stärker berieben und bestossen, insgesamt aber gutes Exemplar. Erster Theil welcher die Feldzüge von 1756 und 1757 enthält Zweiter Theil welcher den Feldzug von 1758 enthält Dritter Theil welcher den Feldzug von 1759 enthält Vierter Theil, welcher den Feldzug von 1760 enthält Fünfter Theil, welcher den Feldzug von 1761 enthält Sschster und letzter Theil, welcher den Feldzug von 1762 enthält. - Der englische General Henry Lloyd hatte den Beginn des Siebenjährigen Krieges auf österreichischer Seite mitgemacht - 1760 trat er in preußischen Dienst. "Ein reich veranlagter Geist, klug und mutig, und als Militärschriftsteller machte er Epoche". Lloyd hat die geometrische Betrachtungsweise der Kriegsstrategie, wie sie sich seit den Kriegen Ludwigs XIV. herausgebildet hatte, zur Vollendung gebracht. Clausewitz hat ihn später als "Muster jener falschen Theorie, die sich bis in unsere Zeiten hineinzieht" scharf angegriffen (vgl. Jähns 1872).- Der Übersetzer Georg Friedrich von Tempelhof verwendete hier erstmalig den Begriff "Siebenjähriger Krieg". Die erste deutsche Ausgabe (übersetzt von J.A. Remer) war 1777 erschienen

ZIMMERMAN Heinrich
1783. Second French (language) edition. 8vo. Sewn as originally issued, untrimmed with large margins, in drop-back box, with black morocco label to spine. xvi, 200pp. Berne, Although the type was reset and the title page altered slightly this second French language edition is nearly identical to the first, which was published in Berne in the preceding year. Both are ?of great rarity? according to Holmes. They include, in addition to Zimmerman's narrative, a life of Cook taken from Lichtenberg's Gottingisches Magazin. of 1780. This, the first biography of Cook, was written with material supplied by the Forsters. Zimmerman was coxswain of the Discovery. He gives a valuable account of ?below decks? life on board the ship, and although his narrative is not without errors, Homes concedes that the work has ?an ingeniousness and charm which differentiate it from other accounts? Indeed, Sir Joseph Banks noted that it contained ?some curious details, not in the larger work? (ie. the official account). Forbes (Hawaiian Nat. Bib.) I, 59; du Reitz, 1364; cf. Lada-Mocarski, 33; cf. Hill, p333.

Les brocheurs [...] faisant souvent de nombreux déchets, on avait, en 1755, tiré plus de suites qu'il n'en fallait ; les inemployées de ces suites étaient restées en magasin et, multipliées par 276, formaient un volume et un capital improductif fort gênants.

SANTA ANNA, Joaquim José de.
VIII, 279, [1 blank] pp.Rare first and only edition of an extensive and well-illustrated pioneering work on ophthalmology and eye surgery, the first ever published in Portugal, with illustrations showing both the instruments and the surgeon and assistant removing a cataract from a patient's eye, half a century before surgeons began using ether as an anaesthetic. Santa Anna notes that parts are largely translated from Louis Florent Deshais-Gendron's Traité des maladies des yeux and Joseph Jacob Plenck's Doctrina de morbis oculorum, but he made additions and corrections based on his own experience. In 1783, Joaquim José de Santa Anna (ca. 1735?-1814) was appointed as the first ocular surgeon in Portugal, at the Hospital de S. José in Lisbon.Santa Anna proved well-versed in the theories of the most distinguished ophthalmologists of Germany, England and France, as well as in the auxiliary sciences that formed an essential background.With an owner's inscription struck through in the foot margin of the title-page. The left edge of plate I is slightly browned near the head, where it has been trimmed up to the border of the image, and one quire is slightly loose, but the book is generally in very good condition. The binding shows some superficial wear but is still good. A fascinating account of 18th-century eye care.l Blake, p. 400; Innocêncio IV, 91 & XII, 95; Porbase (1 copy); Wellcome V, p. 21.

KANT, Immanuel.
Riga Johann Friedrich Hartknoch, 1783. First edition, second issue with woodcut device to title, woodcut head-piece (angels) on p. 3, and woodcut tail-piece (rod with leaves). 8vo., 222, [2 (blank)] pp., extensive mid-19th century ink annotations on endpapers, minimal spotting, gutter of title page and last printed leaf recently reinforced; untrimmed in contemporary paste-paper boards, manuscript label to spine, sewn two-up on sunken cords, corners a little bumped, extremities rubbed, some paper loss to spine, otherwise a very good copy. 'The finest and most comprehensible of Kant's principal works, which is far too little read, for it immensely facilitates the study of his philosophy' (Schopenhauer). Published two years after his seminal Kritik der reinen Vernunft, Kant's polemic Prolegomena advance and defend his earlier conclusions, often by means of new arguments. 'The best of all introductions to . the Critique of Pure Reason [with] exemplary lucidity and wit' (Beck), the Prolegomena 'inaugurates [sic] a new form of truly philosophical popularity, unrivaled for clarity and keenness' (Cassirer). Early annotations on the endpapers record influential philosophical publications from 1747 to 1803, including the Prolegomena and three Critiques, discussing Kant's sources and his influence on subsequent thinkers.

[And:] Sorrows of Werter. They had passed an hour in this irksome situation, when the arrival of Werter’s servant completed Charlotte’s distress London Pubd April, 21, 1785 by Ias Birchall No. 473 Strand. With the publication of Götz von Berlichingen (1773) and Die Leiden des jungen Werthers (1774), ‘in one brief year Goethe made the transition from promising young poet, to standard-bearer of a new literary movement, to rising international literary star’ (Bareikis 92). Goethe’s influential novel first appeared in English, via a French translation, in 1779, and soon grabbed the attention of the British public. It is fitting that two of the prints here are after work by Johann Heinrich Ramberg (1763–1840), a young German artist who had come to England in 1781, where he was immediately ‘introduced to George III, for whom he made many humorous sketches and caricatures. He is said to have been a pupil of Sir Joshua Reynolds and Francesco Bartolozzi, and in November 1781 he entered the Royal Academy Schools, where he studied with Benjamin West under the special protection of George III’ (Oxford DNB).

Backhuysen-- Ludolf (1631-1708)
Kopergravure vervaardigd in 1783 door Matthias de Sallieth, naar een tekening van Gerrit van der Pals, die op zijn beurt een schilderij van Ludolf Backhuysen kopieerde. Afm. 28 x 36,2 cm. We zien Hoek van Holland in 1684. Op de oever drie mannen en een vrouw die een hondje aait. Op de voorgrond in het water een binnenkomende snik met spriettuig, zijn zeilen innemende. Het schip draagt een witte vlag in top, met daarin het jaartal 1684. Erachter twee grote schepen onder zeil. Het achterste vaartuig draagt in zijn spiegelversiering het wapen van Amsterdam. Aan de horizon zijn nog enkele andere vaartuigen zichtbaar alsmede de oever aan de overkant van het water. Werk van Ludolf Backhuysen (1631-1708) vertoont sterke invloed van Willem van de Velde de Jonge. Backhuysen schilderde havengezichten en scheepsportretten, maar bekend werd hij vooral door zijn stormachtige zee?n en schipbreuken. Hij verbeeldde talrijke voorvallen uit de Hollandse maritieme geschiedenis. Prijs: Euro975,- (incl. lijst).

Attribuant l'oeuvre à Marguerite de Navarre dans sa préface, il la rend responsable d'avoir traduit et glané ces contes se déroulant dans la Gaule avant la domination romaine.

RECUEIL DE RECETTES
1783-1784. ______ Format : In-folio. Collation : (4), 230, (4) pp. Reliure : Cartonnage de l'époque, papier dominoté. ____ Recueil manuscrit de recettes, remèdes et "secrets"... On y trouve un très grand nombre de recettes pour l'eau de Cologne, les liqueurs, les ratafias, les eaux de vie, pour soigner le vin. Les onguents, les drogues et les remèdes pour soigner toutes sortes de maladies. La recette de l'Elixir de longue vie, de l'eau pour raffermir les gencives, de la pommade pour le teint. Les manières de fabriquer les encres, la cire à cacheter, les couleurs et les vernis... Toutes ces "recettes" ce lisent sans ordre, et on dû être transcrites au jour le jour dans ce copieux manuscrit. Comment faire le vin d'absinthe, ou glacer les crèmes, fromages et fruits, se mélangent avec comment faire des appâts pour les poissons ou les oiseaux, ou pour faire du vin cuit. A la fin on trouve 4 pages portant des dessins d'alambic avec des instructions pour l'utiliser. Et plus loin une liste, datée de 1784, "des prix des achats à Kehl et à Freibourg" : gomme, rhubarbe, laudanum, camphre... Des erreurs de pagination. Il y a peut-être des manques : entre la page 6 et 9, p. 182 qui est blanche à la p. 187 qui est blanche aussi et de 218 à 221, reliure usée. *-------*.

"Ein reich veranlagter Geist, klug und mutig, und als Militärschriftsteller machte er Epoche". Lloyd hat die geometrische Betrachtungsweise der Kriegsstrategie, wie sie sich seit den Kriegen Ludwigs XIV. herausgebildet hatte, zur Vollendung gebracht. Clausewitz hat ihn später als "Muster jener falschen Theorie, die sich bis in unsere Zeiten hineinzieht" scharf angegriffen (vgl. Jähns 1872).- Der Übersetzer Georg Friedrich von Tempelhof verwendete hier erstmalig den Begriff "Siebenjähriger Krieg". Die erste deutsche Ausgabe (übersetzt von J.A.

1783. thanks for checking out one of my items, if you like this you will probably like other items i have, i get tons of stuff in diverse fields of collecting and use. NOTE: i will always combine items to save you shipping cost. I HAVE NOTICED THAT SOMETIMES NOT ALL PHOTOS SHOW UP ON TABLETS AND PHONES, IT IS BEST TO VIEW ITEMS NOT ON A MOBILE DEVICE... THIS ITEM IS----wow this is a nice set, complete in 3 volumes. published in 1783 in Dublin, the same year as the first edition published in London in 2 volumes, this is the first Irish edition. I believe this is the original leather which is very scarce, Note volume one the front cover is not connect nor are the first blank page. i love the tooled sides to teh leather as shown in the pictures. i think you can see the exact conditon of the three volumes in the phots but if you need more just ask. the cover to volume 2 is a bit loose as shown. you can also see that the book titles and numbers on the spine are very loose but that is for you to fix, i dont want to do it incorrectly. the number 2 has come off since taking the pictures a few hours ago and writing the description. it is possible that the name on book one may come off as it is close. the tenth photo is of volume two. i also noticed on page discolored in volume one from a piece of scrap paper being left inside. I KNOW YOU KNOW THIS IS AN IMPORTANT WORK AND i am not going to spend time talking about that you can google it anyway if you dont know. as you see them. if you are not satisfied just return them for complete refund. it so rarly happens, but satisfaction guara … [Click Below for Full Description]
