        De l'électricité du corps humain dans l'état de santé et de maladie.

      Paris, Croulbois, 1786. - 2 volumes in 8vo. (2)ff + (xxxiv)pp + (2)ff + 522pp + (1)f; (2)ff + (iv) + 510 + (1)f. With 6 numbered engraved folding plates by L. Legrand following the text. Contemporary polished sheep decorated in gilt. Second edition, entirely reworked and considerably enlarged. A work of both scientific and medical interest, containing much information about atmospheric electricity, its effects on the human system, and the cure of illnesses by the application of positive or negative electricity. Bertholon (1742-1800), a French physician and a friend of Benjamin Franklin, studied electricity extensively, dividing illnesses into the electrical and the non-electrical. His other works include (I)De l'Electricité des Végétaux(/I) and (I)De l'Électricité des Météores(/I). He also devised a method of foretelling earthquakes. First and last few pages very lightly foxed, otherwise a good, crisp set with a Latin inscription in a neat contemporary hand inside back cover of volume II. Wheeler Gift Catalogue 533. Mottelay pp258-259. Wellcome II, p154. Not in Osler. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Exposition élémentaire des principes des calculs supérieurs. Qui a remporté le prix proposé par l'Académie Royale des Sciences et Belles-Lettres pour l'année 1786.

      Berlin, Decker, ohne Jahresangabe (ca. 1786). - 4to (ca. 25,5x19 cm), 216 S., 2 Kupfertafeln, späterer Halbleinenband um 1950 mit rotem Rückenschild. Uncommon first edition. The prize-winning essay for the best exposition of a clear and precise theory of the mathematical infinity. "The standard consepts and notation for derivates, and the standard elementary theorems on limits which appear in an undergraduate calculus text today, appear in a remarkably similar form in Lhuilier‘s prize winning essay. Lhuilier introduced the notation "lim", and was the first to allow two-sided limits" [O'Connor & Robertson]. Der aus Genf gebürtige schweizer Mathematiker Simon-Antoine-Jean L'Huilier (1750-1840) verbrachte die Jahre 1777 bis 1788 als Prinzenerzieher in Pulway in Polen, bevor er 1795 eine Mathematikprofessur an der Calvin Akademie seiner Geburtsstadt übernahm. Er verfaßte hervorragende Lehrbücher zur Algebra und Geometrie, in späterer Zeit auch zur Wahrscheinlichkeitsrechnung. Noch aus Polen sandte er an die Berliner Akademie seine Exposition élémentaire des principes des calculs supérieurs, mit der er unter den 23 Einsendern den Preis auf die von J. L. Lagrange 1784 angeregte Preusaufgabe gewann, eine "klare und genaue Theorie dessen zu liefern, was Unendlich in der Mathematik genannt wird", insbesondere zu erklären, wieso die Infinitesimalmathematik richtige Sätze liefern konnte, obwohl sie von falschen Voraussetzungen ausgegangen war. Einsendeschluß war der 1. Januar 1786. Noch in demselben Jahr wurde L'Huiliers preisgekrönte Schrift auf Kosten der Akademie herausgegeben. 1795 wurde sie lateinisch unter dem Titel: Principium calculi differentialis neu herausgegeben. Die Grundidee von L'Huilier war durchaus nicht neu, sondern fußte auf Jean L Rond d'Alemberts Artikel " Différentiel" in der Encyclopédie. D'Alembert hatte vorgeschlagen, den Grenzwertbegriff zur Lösung der Grundlagenprobleme der infenitesi-mathematik zu verwenden. Demgemäß verbesserte L'Huilier zunächst die Theorie des Grenzwertes und fügte zu den von d'Alembert genannten Sätzen über den ersten Grenzwert den Satz über den Grenzwert eines Verhältnisses bei lim x/y=lim x/lim y. Er führte zum ersten Mal in einem gedruckten Text das Symbol "lim" als Grenzwert ein. In den folgenden Kaipteln gab er eine systematische Darlegung der Elemente des Differential- und Integralkalküls mit seinen Anwendungen auf Geometrie und Mechanik. Boyer.

        Lettre du Comte de Mirabeau à *** sur MM. de Cagliostro et Lavater.

      - Berlin. François de Lagarde. 1786.1 volume in-8, pleine basane fauve, dos à nerfs orné, pièce de titre rouge ("Collection des ouvrages du duc de M."). Seconde pièce de titre frottée.48 pp. ; XIII pp. ; [1] p. bl. Edition originale de cette lettre composée par Mirabeau lors de son séjour à Berlin, et qui dénonce l'influence des illuminés à la mode sur les Princes : il faut dire que le jeune Frédéric-Guillaume II, neveu et successeur du Grand Frédéric depuis 1786, était attiré par les Rosicruciens, et spécialement Johann Christoph von Wöllner. Relié à la suite : MIRABEAU. Sur Moses Mendelssohn, sur la réforme politique des Juifs : et en particulier sur la révolution tentée en leur faveur en 1753 dans la Grande Bretagne. Londres. 1787. [34] ff. ; 130 pp. Edition originale de l'un des ouvrages les plus rares de Mirabeau. Divisé en deux parties relativement hétérogènes (une analyse de l'ouvrage allemand de l'historien prussien Christian Wilhelm Dohm sur la réforme politique et civile des Juifs, Über die bürgerliche Verbesserung der Juden, paru en 1781 ; un éloge du philosophe Menselssohn servant à introduire une défense des Israélites), ce texte majeur rédigé avec l'aide de Mauvillon annonce en tous points les analyses et spéculations sur la condition des Juifs qui accompagneront les travaux de l'Assemblée Constituante. Il faut noter que la réimpression à l'adresse de Bruxelles en 1788 ne comprend pas la première partie.INED, 3192. Livres [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Ganz trefliche höchstgeheime Wissenschaften, und vollkomene Explicirung der höchst nutzbaren edlen Bierbräukunst.

      Ingolstadt, 1786. - Deutsche Handschrift auf Papier. (2), 86 SS. (davon 66f. und 70f. weiß). Pappband der Zeit mit gepr. Deckelschildchen, datiert "1786". 4to (170 x 195 mm). Umfangreiches Rezeptbuch zur Braukunst, in sechs Kapitel unterteilt. Enthält neben den Erklärungen zur Reinigung der Gerste und zur Zubereitung und Gärung von Malz auch "geheime Kunstmittel" und "fürtreffliche Arcana", etwa "wie man ein völlig sauer gewordenes Bier wieder annehmlich machen kann". Der Haupttext umfasst die Seiten 1-63 der alt paginierten Handschrift; er ist von einer Hand durchgehend in sauberer Kurrente geschrieben einschließlich der dreiseitigen rühmenden Vorrede. Laut Eintrag am Vortitel (datiert 15. Feb. 1786) wurde das Rezeptbuch angelegt von Gregor Welhorn, "Bürgerlicher Büer Brauer in der Churfürstlichen Haubt- und Vestungsstadt Ingolstadt". Als urspünglicher Verfasser wird im Vorwort jedoch Melchior Schlögl genannt, "Professor", "praxator peritissimus" (hocherfahrener Brauer) und "einer der berühmtesten Breumeister in Deutschland", der das Buch "mit allen seinen geheimen Chunstmitteln und Hauptarcanen für sich selbst zu seinen eigenen Behuf" geschrieben habe, "alles haarklein beschrieben im Jahr 1782". Dieser "berühmte Frater" wird bezeichnet als "leiblicher Bruder" von Vicelinus Schlögl, einem der "führnehmsten Professoren" - nämlich des Bäckerssohns Anton Vicelinus Schlögl (1743-1811), der es nach seiner Ausbildung im Augustinerchorherrenstift Polling bei Weilheim bis zum Professor der Mathematik und Physik an der Universität Ingolstadt brachte; beim Brauer Melchior dürfte es sich um dessen jüngeren Bruder (1752-88) handeln, der unter der Ordensnamen "Quarinus" als regulierter Chorherr und Professor der Physik im oberbayerischen Kloster Rottenbuch wirkte und am Observatorium Hohenpeißenberg meteorologische Beobachtungen anstellte (vgl. zu beiden Poggendorff II, 805). - Auf den letzten Blättern finden sich wohl zumeist in den 1790er Jahren entstandene Notizen, etwa zu Malzeinkäufen und anderen Ausgaben, weitere Braurezepte oder ein Rezept zum Vertreiben von Fliegen und Mücken. Bemerkenswert ist auch ein Eintrag über die Verstoßung einer Frau nach nur drei Ehejahren: "selben Samstag nach Willibaldi 1797 ist sie von mir zu ihren Eltern geschaft worden, aber nicht von Oberigkeits wegen, sondern blos alleinig habe ich es gedan" (S. 68). - Einband berieben und bestoßen, Rücken fehlt. Am Beginn Bindung etwas gelockert, noch vor der Paginierung zwei Blätter zwischen S. 82 und 83 herausgeschnitten. Gebräunt bzw. etwas fleckig. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Verfassung und Statuten des josephinisch medizinisch-chirurgischen Akademie sammt der Ordnung bei Beförderung zu Magistern und Doktoren der Chirurgie.

      Wien, Trattner, 1786 - 63 S. Erste Ausgabe dieser Statuten und Verfassung des Josephinum in Wien als eigenständige der Universität gleichgestellte Instutution. - Im November 1785 wurde das Josephinum als k.k. medizinisch-chirurgische Josephs-Academie zur Ausbildung von Ärzten und Wundärzten von Giovanni Alessandro Brambilla - dem Leibchirurg Kaiser Joseph II. - eröffnet. Bereits 1786 wurde diese Institution zur „medizinisch – chirurgischen Josephsakademie" mit dem Status einer Universität. Giovanni Alessando Brambilla (1728 - 1800) war Protochirurgus und der erste Direktor der Akademie.

        Exercises de Devotion de M. Henri Roch avec Mme. La Duchesse de Condor par feu M. l'Abbé de Voisenon de joueuse memoire et de son vivant Membre de l'Academie Francoise

      Very Good. A Vaucluse, 1786. First edition. Frontispiece. 13.8 cm. In-12 (4+8), [xiv; 104 pages]. Épitre Dedicatoire à M. Jean Camard and the Préface de M. Querlon, Bibliothécaire de M. Beaujon precede the text, and La Rocambole, ou Notes Édifiantes et Récréatives follow the text (pp. 81 1040). With a frontispiece (Te Deum Laudamus) that is both sacrilegious and sadomasochistic, showing M. lAbbé making his point on the duchess with a scourge in his right hand and devotional images above two prie-dieux in the background. This untrimmed copy has been re-backed. A bright, crisp copy, with occasional pencil high-lighting. There are copies at the Bibliothèque nationale, Yale, and the British Library. Claude-Henri de Fusée de Voisenon addressed an epistle to Voltaire at the age of 11 years, who returned his thanks and predicted a career for the precocious youngster. The two of them remained friends for half a century. Coming from a great French family, Voisenon was ordained a priest in 1739 and became grand-vicaire of the Diocese of Boulogne, of which the bishop was his uncle. His uncle assigned him the task of editing the bishops pronouncements, which came out more as epigrams than edifying thoughts. He endeared himself to the people of the diocese to such a degree that they demanded he succeed his uncle. Voisenon, himself, went to Versailles to request that he not be named, accepting instead the Abbey of Jard, close to Melun. Well-known in the best circles of French society, Voisenon accepted an annuity of 6,000 from Louis XV to write Essais historiques for use by Louis XVs grandson. He was elected to lAcademie française in 1762, occupying Fauteuil 13, the seventh person to have that seat. He wrote erotic literature like Exercises de Devotion in addition to comedies and an opera (LAmour et Psyché).

        Proceedings at a meeting of the British inhabitants of Fort St. George, Madras, on Monday, September 19, 1785, in consequence of a summons by the High Sheriff of the said town. With an address to His Majesty, and petitions to both Houses of Parliament, on the subject of Mr. Pitt's East-India Bill.

      London: J. Debrett. MDCCLXXXVI 1786 - 8vo., (2) + 36pp., some minor staining of title-page, recent marbled boards lettered on spine. A good copy. Only edition. Virtually the whole of the British ex-pat population were in a state of high dudgeon about Pitt's India Act> of 1784. Their complaints turned particularly on their change of status vis-à-vis the new system of criminal jurisdiction. Meetings of British residents had already taken place in Calcutta in July, and in Cawnpore as early as March. Both meetings had resulted in strong complaints being forwarded to London. The Fort St. George meeting in September underlined the uncompromising mood. In a letter to the King, the residents regretfully complained that: 'We observe, with inexpressable concern, that the Act of Parliament, passed in the 24th year of your Majesty's reign, and entitled, An Act for the better regulation and management of the affairs of the East-India Company, and for establishing a Court of Judicature for the more speedy and effectual trial of persons accused of offences committed in the East Indies>, is liable to an interpretation extremely adverse to that freedom and protection which are equally claimed by every subject in your Majesty's dominions. The privilege of trial by jury is there taken away from us, and our persons and property endangered without even the formation of a charge, or any alledged cause of suspicion against us'.

        Decade di alberi curiosi ed eleganti piante delle Indie Orientali, e dell’America ultimamente fatte già note dal celebre Sig. Dottore Giovanni Hill. Dall’idioma Inglese, ridotta all’Italiana Favella, col lasciare intatta la descrizione di Latina. e corredata di alquante note.

      Nella Stamperia Salomoni,, In Roma, 1786 - In 4° piccolo (23,7×18 cm); (8), 31, (1) pp. e 10 c. di tav. con finissima coloritura coeva. Legatura in cartoncino molle foderato con bella carta marmorizzata di recupero, fogli di sguardia novecenteschi. Antica firma di appartenenza privata al frontespizio "Gaspare Grasselli". Un leggerissimo alone al margine esterno della prima parte del volume, spesso praticamente invisibile e mai intenso o fastidioso. Rarissimo a trovarsi con le tavole con coloritura coeva. Rarissimo esemplare che presenta le 10 tavole fuori testo in magnifica e finissima coloritura coeva. Prima ed unica edizione italiana di questa celebre opera del famoso botanico inglese, John Hill (1714 – 21 novembre 1775). Nato, a quanto si racconta, a Peterborough, fece apprendistato in una farmacia, dimostrando fin da subito un grande interesse per gli aspetti botanici legati alla professione. Ottenuta la laure in medicina ad Edimburgo ottenne fama e successo con i suoi preparati farmaceutici a base vegetale, molti dei quali da lui stesso ideati. Dopo aver gestito per un certo tempo una bottega farmaceutica a St Martin’s Lane in Westminster, la sua attività principale divenne sempre di più lo studio della botanica, della storia naturale e la pubblicazione di opere botaniche, anche se non mancarono nella sua produzione letteraria romanzi, drammi, articoli su riviste e scritti scientifici come quelli di geologia. Fu tra i principali contributore della Ephraim Chambers’s Cyclopaedia. Dal 1759 al 1775 fu totalmente impegnato in quella che sarebbe diventata la sua opera principale e che gli sarebbe valso il riconoscimento di dall’Ordine di Vasa dal re di Svezia nel 1774, "The Vegetable System" in 26 tomi. Comunque nonostante i suoi numerosi campi di interesse, sono soprattutto le opere di botaniche che gli diedero fama e prestigio. Nonostante i suoi indubbi meriti scientifici e l’amicizia di molti appartenenti alla Royal Society, non riuscì mai ad essere affiliato a quest’ultima, cosa che lo amareggio notevolmente. Probabilmente, nonostante i suoi scritti scientifici, furono le "querelle", a volte anche dai toni scurrili con alcuni affiliati, a tenerlo fuori dalla celebre istituzione scientifica inglese che divenne, negli ultimi anni di vita dell’autore, uno dei principali obbiettivi delle sue critiche. In particolare, Hill rinfacciava alla Royal Society e non senza ragione, di avere troppi affiliati privi di qualsivoglia preparazione scientifica. L’opera qui presentata descrive 10 esemplari rari e curiosi di piante autoctone dell’America e dell’Asia mai prima descritte (a parte la pianta carnivora Dionea che era già apparsa in un’opera di Ellis nel 1770) ricevute da Hill direttamente dai luoghi d’origine. Il traduttore dell’opera è probabilmente il sacerdote gesuita argentino, Gaspar Xúarez che aggiunse all’edizione italiana numerose ed interessanti note. Ogni pianta viene presentata con il suo nome inglese, italiano e latino e ne vengono descritte caratteristiche principali ed habitat. Alcuni studiosi hanno suggerito che le tavole siano opera di Hill stesso ma non vi sono prove al riguardo. Non comune e rarissimo a reperirsi con le tavole a colori. Rif.
