        Forsøg til en Natur-Historie indeholdende vor Klodes Udvikling ved Adams Skabelse, og den dermed ved Syndfloden foregangne Forandring samt den historiske Astronomie...

      10 dele i 21 bind (komplet). Gyldendal, København 1786-1804. 21 smukke uniforme samtidige lysebrune halvlæderbind. Fra det Classenske Bibliothek med dettes stempel på titelbladet i hvert bind. Senere ejernavn på fribladet i nogle af bindene. Velholdt og præsentabelt sæt.. Bibl. Dan. II,162-63. Komplet sæt af Esaias Fleischers ambitiøse naturhistorie, der som så meget andet af samme karakter var længe undervejs. Esaias Fleischer (1732-1804) var en konservativt anlagt forfatter og embedsmand og en ægte eksponent for oplysningstiden. Han spillede en lille birolle i komplottet mod Struensee i 1772, og hans karriere toppede da også i perioden frem til 1784, hvor den fik en brat, men nåderig afslutning. Fleischer var yderst optaget af agrarvidenskab, men hans mest ambitiøse værk er dog denne ambitiøst anlagte naturhistorie, "der hviler på vidtløftig læsning af udenlandsk litteratur" (Svend Cedergreen Bech i DBL)

        Histoire de ce qui s'est passé relativement au Prix proposé sur la Formation du Salpêtre. (+) Recueil de Mémoires et de Pièces sur la Formation et la Fabrication du Salpêtre. (2 parts).

A small nich to leather at middle of front hinge. A small tear to rear hinge at upper compartment. "Mémoires fe Mathematique et de Physique, Présentés à l'Academie des Sciences par divers Savans", Tome XI. (4),198,682 pp. Wide-margined, fine and clean.. This collective work is the French Academy's monumental treatise on the chemistry and the production of Salpetre, a topic of great importence for the war-industry in making gunpowder. The volume contains papers by Macquer, Darcy, Lavoisier, Sage, Baumé, de la Rochefoucault, Clouer and an anonymous report on experiments made in England (CAVENDISH'S) on the composition of nitric acid....papers by Cornette, Thouvenel and Thouvenel, Le Lorgna, Gavinet and Chevrand, de Beunie, Romme, Clouet and Lavoisier, de Rochefoucault etc.(Partington III, p. 467 n)."The Regie des Poudres et Salpetres had the monopoly of refining salpetre from 1775 until it was suppressed during the Revolution. Until his retirement in 1791 the leading light in it was Lavoisier, who seems to have written its publications. - In 1775 the Academy offered a prize of 4000 livres for a process for procuring an abundant supply of salpetre,the announcement being written by Lavoisier. Altogether 66 papers were received and the prize was finally awarded in 1782 to the brothers Thouvenel, who gave a full account of nitre plantations. The material was published in 1786 in one volume by the Academy. In it Lavoisier describes 'Experiences sur la décomposition du nitre par le charbon' said to have been made in 1784..."(Partington III, pp. 466 ff.)."Peu de temps après que Lavoisier eut été nommé régisseur des poudres et salpêtres, il suggéra à Turgot, alors contrôleur général des finances, l'idée de charger l'Académie des sciences de décerner un prix au meilleur mémoire sur la formation du salpêtre. 'Académie nomma une commission dont Lavoisier fut le rapporteur ; c'est lui qui examina tous les mémoires présentés au concours, en fit l'analyse, et, quand l'Académie publia en 1786 un volume contenant l'histoire du prix du salpêtre et les mémoires présentés au concours, c'est encore Lavoisier qui en fut le rédacteur. Ce volume fait partie du Recueil des mémoires de mathématiques et de physique présentés à l'Académie royale des sciences par divers savants et lus dans ses assemblées (tome XI, contenant le Recueil des mémoires sur la formation et la fabrication du salpêtre, à Paris, de l'imprimerie Moutard, DCCLXXXVI). Sauf les mémoires des concurrents et un mémoire du duc de la Rochefoucault, ce volume est tout entier de la main de Lavoisier. Il est formé de deux parties ; la première est intitulée : Histoire de ce qui s'est passé relativement au prix proposé sur la formation du salpêtre ; la seconde partie comprend les mémoires présentés au concours ainsi que des mémoires de Lavoisier et Clouet, un mémoire sans signature, mais qui appartient à Lavoisier (le manuscrit autographe a été conservé), le mémoire du duc de La Rochefoucault, et les expériences de Lavoisier sur la décomposition du nitre par le charbon."

Fiske s. 101. Första delen innehåller dokument rörande Danmark under tidsperioden år 1085 till 1259 och andra delen innehåller dokument rörande Norge under tidsperioden år 1146 till 1299. Historikern Hans Gram föreslog redan omkring 1730 att man skulle utge ett diplomatarium för Danmark och Norge, d.v.s. en samling av de bevarade medeltida dokumenten från de båda rikena. Idén tilltalade kungen och Gram påbörjade avskrivandet av dokument. Arbetet forsattes sedan av hans efterträdare som geheimearkivar, Jacob Langebek. Dennes tid gick dock till hans stora "Scriptorum rerum danicarum" och arbetet avstannade. Tryckningen och det fortsatta arbetet upptogs för Danmarks vidkommande först på 1930-talet. Istället lyckades arkivarien vid Geheimearkivet, G. J. Thorkelin - som dessutom var sekreterare för den Arnamagnæanske kommissionen - att med original och avskrifter i den Arnamagnæanske handskriftsamlingen, ge ut detta pionjärarbete för nordisk medeltidshistoria

Thorkelins 'Diplomatarium Arnamagnæanum', der omfatter breve fra den Arnamagnæanske Samling. Første bind indeholder breve vedrørende Danmark 1085 til 1259 og andet bind indeholder breve om Norge fra 1184 til 1299. Den islandsk-fødte arkivar og historiker Thorkelin blev i 1777 sekretær for den Arnamagnæanske Kommission og samling, der for største delens vedkommende består af islandske håndskrifter indsamlet af Arni Magnusson (1663-1730), men som også indeholder danske og norske aktsstykker. Thorkelin fik afskrevet og udgivet denne guldgrube af vidnesbyrd fra middelalderen og videreførte dermed en del af det arbejde historikeren Hans Gram havde påbegyndt i 1731 med en Diplomatarium Danicum (der først stod færdig i slutningen af det 20. århundrede)
