"Jeder hat eine Bestimmung, und wenn er diese erfüllt, so ist er in dem Stande ein verehrungswürdiger Mann.

Laßt es Euch sagen: Der nützliche Mann ist der beste, der vornehmste Mann, und je mehr Einer zum allgemeinen Besten beyträgt, um desto höher steht er in den Augen des Weisen" (S. 180). – Titel mit Besitzeintrag, sonst gutes Exemplar. – Knigge 11.01.

Jahrhunderts, p. 67. Descriptio Austria p. 180 (Tafel 58). "Nachdem der 'Bauernkartograph' Blasius Hueber (1735 - 1814) die Arbeiten an seiner großen Tirol Karte vollendet hatte, erhielt er durch kaiserliche Entschließung den ehrenvollen Auftrag, nun auch 'Vorarlberg nach dem nemlichen Maassstab, und sonst in allen anderen Stücken auf gleiche Art wie Tyrol aufzunehmen und zu mappieren'. Diese Aufgabe führe er mit einigen Unterbrechnungen zwischen Juni 1771 bis Oktober 1774, wobei ihn sein Bruder Veit, vor allem aber sein Neffe Anton Kirchebner (1750 - 1831) unterstützten. So wie bei der Aufnahme Tirols stieß man mancherorts auf Mißtrauen seitens der Bevölkerung und hatte mit ungünstiger Witterung zu kämpfen (etwa Übernachtungen unter freiem Himmel auf gefrorenem Boden). 1776 war die Reinzeichnung der Karte beendet, doch dauerte es bis 1783, ehe der Kupferstich fertig vorlag und die in Maßstab und Darstellung dem Atlas Tyrolenis gleichende Karte der Vorarlberger Herrschaften (die im Norden und Nordosten über die heutigen Landesgrenzen hinausreichten) ausgeliefert wurde." (Austria Picta, p. 324); über Jahre hinweg die genaueste Karte Vorarlbergs, viel seltener als der "Atlas Tyrolenis"; wie meist zerschnitten und alt auf Leinwand montiert, in den Ecken kleine Reisnagellöchlein, die Karte zum Schutz alt mit leichter Lackschicht überzogen, gutes Exemplar der sehr seltenen Karte.

La maison ducale et princière de Béthune compte parmi les plus anciennes et illustres maisons de France et d'Europe ; la plupart des princes d'Europe lui sont affiliés, sans compter ceux spécialement de la maison de France ; son plus célèbre représentant fut le duc de Sully.

Projet ambitieux d'un homme ancré dans la réalité de son temps (et qui passa plus de 30 ans dans le Levant), le Voyage littéraire de la Grèce repère dans la Grèce moderne tout l'héritage de l'Antiquité, et fait des Grecs modernes les héritiers directs, les descendants des Grecs anciens. L'auteur renouvelle ainsi l'intérêt du voyage vers la Grèce. Avant la lettre, c'est un des premiers ouvrages d'anthropologie.

        Bacchi tempel, öpnadt vid en hieltes död [The temple of Bacchus, opened at the death of a hero].

      1783 - Stockholm, Kongl. tryckeriet, 1783. 8:o. (2),124 pp. With nine engraved vignettes by the brothers Martin pasted in and engraved musical notes in the text.Contemporary half calf, somewhat worn, with richly gilt spine and glazed paper label. Red edges. Spine somewhat faded, label with superficial cracks. Foxing and minor spotting. Signatures.A second edition was published in 1815. Carl Michael Bellman (1740-95) is one of the most brilliant figures in Swedish literary history and a great contributor to the Swedish song tradition. After brief studies at Uppsala University, he first became known as a musical entertainer, performing parodic songs at taverns in his hometown of Stockholm, but from an early age he also wrote religious poetry. "Bacchi tempel" has been seen as an attempt - perhaps - by Bellman to achieve wider recognition as a poet. The songs were written against the background of a fictitious fraternal order, Bacchi Orden, in which only those could become members who had been seen laying drunk in the gutter. With his great linguistic inventiveness, combined with an eye for the comedy and tragedy of everyday life, Bellman has been likened to both Shakespeare, Mozart and Hogarth, but he remains a unique voice, which is still relatively unknown outside Scandinavia.

        Auszug des Englischen Zuschauers. (Hrsg. J. Addison und R. Steele). Nach einer neuen Übersetzung (von K. W. Ramler und J. L. Benzler). 8 Bände (alles Erschienene). Mit gestoch. Porträt Addisons. Hübsche Halblederbde d. Z. mit 2 farbigen Rückenschildern.

      Berlin, Himburg, 1782-1783. - Die erste deutsche Ausgabe der wohl berühmtesten Zeitschrift des Jahrhunderts war 1739-1744 veranstaltet worden. Diese Übersetzung wies jedoch so viele Mängel und Fehler auf, dass man sich trotz der verbesserten Ausgabe von Gottsched und Schwabe (1749-1751) zu einer Neuausgabe entschloss (vgl. Vorwort). Benzler übertrug den Text, während Ramler sich um die Verdeutschung der zahlreichen Gedichte kümmerte. Der englische ‚Spectator‘ hatte die Gattung der Moralischen Wochenschriften klassisch fixiert, er hat eigentlich die Maßstäbe gesetzt; auf ihn beziehen sich die folgenden Wochenschriften des Kontinents vor allem. Und die zahlreichen Neuausgaben und Bearbeitungen nicht nur des ‚Spectator‘ zeigen, dass für das an weltlicher Bildung begierige Publikum das Interesse an der Wochenschrift nicht mit der periodischen Ausgabe beendet war. Die eigentümliche Zeit-Ungebundenheit dieser Schriften hat in der Zeitschriftenliteratur kaum Vergleichbares. – Tadelloses, frisches Exemplar. – Goed. IV 1, 181, 40. Kirchner 5112 (nur ein Nachweis).

        The history of the reign of Philip the Third, King of Spain

      Price, et al,, Dublin: 1783 - 8vo. [viii], 525, [10] pp., including index. Contemporary calf, rebacked; an excellent copy with the bookplate of the Franciscan Capuchin Library, Church Street, Dublin, on the paste-down. First Dublin edition, printed the same year as the first London edition. Divided into six books, the first deals with the life of Philip, with the remainder describing the various wars and the political state of Spain, its allies and enemies, during Philip’s reign, from 1598-1621. A significant focus of the history recounts Spain’s internal politics, including the expulsion of the Moriscos. A detailed and fascinating chronological work encompassing both the rise of the Spanish empire as well as the decline of its economy, all thoroughly tied to the nature and outlook of Philip and his counselors.Watson (1730-1781) was a philosopher and church minister; the book was completed after Watson’s death by William Thomson (1746-1817), a disgraced Scottish minister and librarian to the eighth earl of Kinnoull.

Mirabeau, qui composa cet ouvrage au donjon de Vincennes, parvient a donner a la fois une oeuvre au libertinage le plus debride, une enquete historique et anthropologique erudite sur la diversite des moeurs sexuelles depuis l'antiquite biblique, en meme temps qu'une charge contre l'absolutisme, la morale traditionnelle et la religion.

        1783. BILL IN CHANCERY BY PERSONS CONCERNED IN PRIVATEER AT BERWICK AG[AINS]T SOME PERSONS WHO HAD SUBSCRIBED AND WHO [WOULD?] CONTRIBUTE THERETO [manuscript docket title].

      [London? 1783]. - 18pp. Large folio. Loose leaves. Old fold lines. Minor wear and soiling, primarily to final page. Very good. Complaint filed by Edward Parker in Chancery Court concerning the resolution of a privateering endeavor mounted by members of an association in Berwick-Upon- Tweed, in northernmost England, during the American Revolutionary War. The complaint is that several members of the association have not paid their share of the subscription in order to pay down the debts incurred in the outfitting and purchase of the vessels necessary for the operation. The association members and the many subscribers are all named with their subscriptions recorded. The document notes that all are members of "a certain Society formed for the purposes of Adventure in fitting out privateers ag[ains]t the common Enemy in the course of the late war that by certain Articles of Agreement bear a date on or ab[ou]t the 30th day of Decr. in the yr of our Lord 1780." The terms of the association are laid out and the purchase and outfitting of the ship described. The judges denoted are the Right Honourable Alexander Lord Loughborough, Sir William Henry Ashurst, and Sir Beaumont Hotham. Interestingly, two of the judges on the case, Ashurst and Hotham, both served as judges during the famous trial of James Hill, known as "John the Painter," who, acting as agent of Benjamin Franklin and Silas Deane, set fire to the Portsmouth naval yard rope-house in 1777. Lengthy and informative, detailing the ways in which people set about to profit by privateering during the Revolution.

        Memoir of a Map of Hindoostan;

      London: Printed by M. Brown, for the Author,, 1783. or the Mogul's Empire: With an Examination of some Positions in the former System of Indian Geography; and some Illustrations of the present one: And a Complete Index of Names to the Map. Quarto (275 × 216 mm). Contemporary streaked calf, red morocco label, spine divided by a broad gilt roll framed by fine dotted rolls, single gilt fillet panel to the boards, board edges gilt milled, edges stained yellow. Fine engraved allegorical frontispiece - pundits offering the shastas "into the protection" of Britannia, "in Allusion to the humane Interposition of the British Legislature in Favor of the Natives of Bengal, in the Year 1781" - and two maps, one of them folding. A touch rubbed, the upper joint just starting, tan-burn to the margins of the endpapers, the frontispiece trimmed a little close, some browning, but overall a very good copy. First edition of the descriptive memoir produced by Rennell, "the father of Indian geography", to accompany his map, "the first approximately correct map of India" (DNB). After an early career in the navy, during which he managed to master the art of surveying, Rennell was employed in the service of the East India Company as commander of small surveying vessels. A cruise to Bengal fortuitously had him arriving at Calcutta "at the time when Governor Vansittart was anxious to initiate a survey of the British territory. Owing to the friendship of an old messmate, who had become the governor's secretary, Rennell was appointed surveyor-general of the East India Company's dominions in Bengal, with a commission in the Bengal engineers, dated 9 April 1764. He was only twenty-one years of age when he met with this extraordinary piece of good fortune". Rennell's survey of Bengal, which he embarked upon commenced in 1764, was the first ever prepared. He received the rank of major of Bengal engineers on 5 April 1776, and retired from active service in 1777, after having been engaged on the survey for thirteen years. On his return to England he began the publication of "a new set of maps of Bengal to replace the inadequate small-scale maps published by the East India Company from his earlier surveys, and, with the guarantee of a bulk order from the company, had plates engraved to publish A Bengal Atlas first in 1780 … [it] remained the standard administrative map of Bengal for almost fifty years, the river maps being pirated in Calcutta in 1825, and the last recorded London reprint appearing in 1829 or 1830. Rennell's general map of India, was first published as 'Hindoostan' in 1782 and dedicated to Sir Joseph Banks …". An excellent copy of this important work, elusive in this first edition.

      London: W. Strahan; and T. Cadell; and W. Creech at Edinburgh. 1783. 4to., x + (16) + 655 + (1)pp., including the half title, intermittent very minor foxing, contemporary tree calf gilt, neatly rebacked to match retaining original label. A very good copy indeed with the late 19th century armorial bookplate of the Oldhams* of Doverdale> in Worcestershire (probably that of the Rev. James Oldham who died in 1892). First edition. Jessop p.99. Chuo III, 28. Alston III, 357. James Beattie (1736-1803), poet and professor of moral philosophy and logic at the University of Aberdeen, although not of the same calibre as David Hume, nonetheless, made several significant contributions to the Scottish enlightenment and the intellectual life of Scotland in the late 18th century. In the view of his recent biographer (Roger J. Robinson in ODNB), the Dissertations> was Beattie's 'best prose work'. The book covers 'various philosophical and literary topics, and has an extended treatise entitled The Theory of Language>. In any case, the book met with the most enthusiastic praise from William Cowper the poet, who declared, in a letter to William Hayley that Beattie was the only author he had seen 'whose critical and philosophical researches are diversified and embellished by a poetical imagination that makes even the driest subject and the leanest a feast for epicures'. [DNB/Chuo]. * Doverdale is a small parish a few miles north-west of Droitwich. The advowson of the parish church had passed before 1849 to the Oldham family. In 1892, the Rev. James Oldham left £300 in his will, the interest to be applied towards the repair of the fabric of the church, and of the fences and gates of the churchyard.

(Holmes).Zimmermann's eye-witness account of Cook's third voyage first appeared, in German, at Mannheim in 1781. The French version was next, with this second French edition and a second German edition appearing in 1783. Dutch editions appeared in 1784 and 1791, and a Russian version was published at St Petersburg in 1786 (Kroepelien, 1365). These seem to have been all the appearances of the narrative until the Alexander Turnbull Library published Tewsley's translation in 1926. As Rodney Davidson wrote of the early printings, 'all these editions are exceedingly rare... It is hard to predict the realisation price for a copy if one were to come into the open market, as competition between collectors would be very keen...'.In any early edition, this is one of the scarcest of all the Cook voyage accounts (there is for example no copy of any of the eighteenth century editions in the catalogue of the Hill collection). It was the first description of the third voyage to appear on the continent, and as one of two accounts first published in 1781 - a full three years before the official account - it may well be the first description of the voyage to have been published. It includes an eyewitness account of Cook's death and is also 'valuable for his lower-deck impressions of the character of Cook...' (Beaglehole).'Zimmermann, a native of Speyer, was coxswain in the Discovery. From the start of the voyage he determined to keep a shorthand journal of the voyage and to retain it, despite the instructions... demanding the surrender of all logs and journals... His account is by no means free from errors, but it has an ingenuousness and charm which differentiate it from the other accounts. His appreciation of Cook's character deserves to rank with that of Samwell' (Holmes).This is an unusually excellent copy, entirely uncut as issued by the printed, in it's original marbled wrappers.

Rubbed and marked overall, corners and head of spine bumped, surface splitting to tail of both joints and along rear hinge, light restoration to backstrip at tail, occasional light foxing as usual.

An important account of the revolt of 'Ali Bey, the governor of Egypt who declared the country independent of the Ottoman Empire before proceeding to seize control of the Hijaz and invade Syria; he would go on to orchestrate a comprehensive programme of modernisation and military reforms. "Very little is known of Lusignan, who claims to have known Ali Bey personally. He seems to have been a Greek or more probably a Cypriot who took refuge in London; he advertises himself as a teacher of ancient and modern Greek (on A5v), but there is no mention of him in Legrand. Perhaps he is connected with the Giacomo Lusignan who later acted as a factotum for the Earl of Guildford" (Blackmer).
