Account of Captain Cook's First, Second, Third and Last Voyages... and now publishing under the immediate direction of George William Anderson, Esq

      London: Printed for Alex. Hogg, at the Original Kings' Arms, 1784-, 1786. Folio, with 80 engraved maps, plans and views; half green calf, rebacked, preserving the original red morocco title label. A popular and important one volume edition of Cook's Voyages. Anderson states that he was "assisted, very materially, by a Principal Officer who sailed in the Resolution... and by other Gentlemen of the Royal Navy", and the work contains some particulars not found in the official account.Anderson modestly observes that "some other Editions of these Works (unnecessarily extended to many large volumes, by loose printing, blank paper, and other artifices, practised by many mercinary persons) would cost the purchaser the enormous sum of upwards of Twenty Guineas; so that the thousands of persons who would wish to peruse the valuable discoveries so partially communicated to the world, and view the astonishing fine copper plates, have hitherto been excluded from gratifying their eager curiosity; This Edition, being published in only Eighty Six-penny Numbers (making, when completed, One Large Handsome Volume in Folio) enables every person, whatever may be his circumstances, to become familiarly acquainted with those extraordinary and important voyages and discoveries... and the obvious intention of the King and Government, that the Improvements and Discoveries... might be communicated to the whole world, will of course be more fully answered".

        An Essay on the Slavery and Commerce of the Human Species, particularly the African, translated from a Latin Dissertation, . with additions

      Reprinted by Joseph Crukshank, London, Printed: Philadelphia 1786 - First American edition. Published the same year as the first edition. xvi, [2], [21]-155, [1, ads] pp. 8vo. Clarkson (1760-1846), along with William Wilberforce and Granville Sharp, was instrumental in convincing the British public and Parliament of the moral necessity of abolishing the slave trade. Clarkson's "Essay on the Slavery and Commerce of the Human Species" (1786) galvanized a small group of abolitionists, though they were without political clout until Wilberforce, an MP, publicly took up the cause a year later. A motion for abolition, championed in Parliament by Wilberforce, was defeated in 1791. Not until 1807 did Parliament pass the act abolishing the slave trade.

        Natuurkundige Beschrijving der Zeën.

      - 's Gravenhage, by de Compagnie, 1786. Folio (415 x 265mm). pp. (4), xxv, (1), 216, with a hand-coloured engraved frontispiece and 52 engraved plates of which 50 beautifully hand-coloured. Contemporary half calf, gilt ornamented spine with red gilt lettered label (small repair to foot of spine). The very rare coloured issue of this great classic on marine science. Luigi Ferdinando Marsili (Marsilli or Marsigli) is considered the founding father of modern oceanography. "In 1724 he published the first treatise on oceanography, 'Histoire physique de la mer'. In it he treated problems which until then had been veiled by error and legend. Marsili examined every aspect of the subject: the morphology of the basin and relationship between the lands under and above water; the water's properties (color, temperature, salinity) and its motion (waves, currents, tides); and biology of the sea, which foretold the advent of marine botany. Among the plants he numbered animals like corals, which before his time had been regarded as inorganic matter" (DSB). "In several aspects, Marsigli was a pioneer in hydrographical surveying. He was the first to draw depth-lines on a sea chart. This was a map of the Gulf of Lion, published in his work 'Histoire physique de la mer' (I.C. Koeman, Atlantes Neerlandici II, p.274). Count Marsigli was a Bolognese scientist nobleman, served in the army of Emperor Leopold I and attained high rank. He was the founder of the Accademia delle Scienze dell'Istituto di Bologna and became member in 1722 of the Royal Society and was introduced by Newton. Marsigli's first essay on this subject under the title "Osservazioni naturali intorno al mare" was published in Venice, 1711. An extended version was issued "Histoire physique de la Mer" in Amsterdam, 1725, of which the above offered edition is a translation. Preface in Latin and Dutch by H. Boerhave.The colouring of the plates is exquisite. The plates show sponges, corals, algae, sea-weeds etc. The beautifully coloured allegorical frontispiece shows Neptune seated on a shell and surrounded by corals, shells and fish. Plates 1-5 are double page maps, 6-11 are likewise double page. A large uncut and beautifully preserved copy.Provenance: Armorial bookplate of Luyken Landfort on inside frontcover as well as a small stamp of 'Haus Landfort' on title.Nissen ZBI, 2700.

Evelyn's pioneering work on tree cultivation (Sylva, 1664) and on soils (A Philosophical Discourse of Earth, 1676; in later editions entitled Terra: a philosophical discourse) were both outgrowths of the Elysium Britannicum. Although primarily intended to encourage tree planting after the devastation of the civil war, Sylva was a learned work addressed more to gentlemen than to foresters. In it he introduced the word ?'avenues?' into the English language of landscaping. By its fourth edition it contained ?'an Historical Account of the Sacredness and Use of Standing Groves?' that demonstrates its relation to the Elysium project. Sylva's handsome reissue with additional plates by Alexander Hunter in 1776 gave it a renewed popularity....?' US$908

        Illustrationsentwurf zu einem Kinderbuch mit 9-zeiligem Vers „Dienerschaft" und umlaufenden Rand mit 8 Szenen aus dem Kinderleben.

      - Feder in Schwarz, über Bleistift, auf festem strukturiertem Papier, links unten signiert „W. Wendelstadt". 26:20 cm. Möglicherweise Entwurf zu: Ornements de la mémoire. Contes et poésies pour le premier âge, illustres par Guillme Wendeltstadt, Frankfurt, C. Jügel. Das reizvolle Blatt belegt das große zeichnerische Können der Künstlerin. Die Malerin und Radiererin war die Tochter des als Zeichenlehrer am Städelschen Kunstinstitut tätigen Porträt- und Historienmalers C.F. Wendelstadt (1786-1840) und dessen Ehefrau, der Bildnismalerin Anna Antoinette (1790/1795 – nach 1829) und Schwester des Bildhauers C.E. Wendelstadt (1814-1841). Erste Einführung in die Malerei erfolgte wohl durch ihre Mutter, anschließend erhielt sie Unterricht von J.F. Dielmann (1809-1885). Sie schuf Landschaften, Genreszenen, Stilleben und Porträts. Zudem soll sie an dem von J.H. von Hefner-Altenbeck in Gemeinschaft mit C. Becker herausgegebenen Werk „Kunstwerke und Gerätschaften des Mittelalters und der Renaissance, Mannheim 1848-1863, zeichnerisch mitgewirkt haben.

Paris; Engraved index leaf listing the plates 1-20 (plates 18-20 to be bound as a wide panorama). 24 engraved plates, complete as issued. A RARE WORK WITH FINE PLATES. The first 16 plates are derived from the larger prints by Cochin based on drawings by Giuseppe Castiglione, a missionary artist in the Court of the Emperor.

        The Lyric Works of Horace, translated into English Verse: to which are added a Number of Original Poems. By a Native of America [John Parke]

      Philadelphia: Printed by Eleazer Oswald, 1786. First American edition of Horace in translation. Frontispiece by James Peller Malcom. 8vo. Contemporary sheep. Rebacked, original red morocco gilt label laid down, rubbed, some browning and spotting of text, signature of John Morton Jr. 1794 on blank and title, this could be the son of the Signer, a list of subscribers at back containing some 480 people, mostly from Maryland, Delaware and Pennsylvania, including Caleb Buglass, Tench Cox, Charles Carroll, the Marquis de la Fayette (for 12 sets), Horatio Gates, Thomas M'Kean, Caesar Augustus Rodney and Anthony Wayne. In a marbled paper and brown cloth open end case. First American edition of Horace in translation. Frontispiece by James Peller Malcom. 8vo. John Parke, the editor and translator, was a poet who served with Washington during the Revolution in the quartermaster's department, retired a Colonel, and had been educated at what is now the University of Delaware and University of Pennsylvania. He was also a member of the Library Company of Philadelphia. This work is dedicated to Washington and Parke has paraphrased some of the lyrics to contain local and contemporary accounts and substituted Americans in place for the Roman worthies, as in the case of the Ode celebrating Augustus' return from Spain which is altered to represent Washington's return from Virginia. He has also modeled some parts greatly upon Pope. The bookseller, Henry Stevens, once described this work as "The rarest and oddest of all the American books of poetry." John Wilcocks, a close friend of Parke's and a British officer contributed poems to the "Original Poems" section as did John Pryor. The translations of "Anacreon's Odes" by David French, "the prothonotary of the New Castle court" (Appleton) are included and Parke has contributed "Virginia: A Pastoral Drama, on the Birth-day of an Illustrious personage and the Return of Peace, February 11th, 1784" which is the "earliest known attempt to celebrate Washington's birthday" (Wegelin 303).

        The Plays of William Shakespeare accurately printed from the text of Mr. Malone's edition; with select explanatory notes in seven volume. Volume the First - Seventh. Completo.

      printed for Rivington and sons, L. Davis, B. White 1786 - 1790, London, - In 8° (17,5x10,4 cm); 7 tomi: (2), XXIV, 74, (2), 72, 95, (1), 100, 59, (1) pp., (2), 85, (1), 98, 78, (2), 84, 96, 90, (2) pp., (2), 99, (1), 90, 105, (1), 104, 97, (3) pp., 95, (1), 104, 127, (2), 6-118, 69 pp., (2), 112, 100, 124, 121, (1), 118 pp., (2), 192, 90, 118, 80 pp., (2), 126, 138, 109, (1), 274 pp. Belle legature coeve in piena pelle maculate con dorsi a 5 nervi, titolo e numero del volume in oro su fascetta scura al dorso. Filetti in oro ai tasselli. Ai piatti cornice con filetto in oro. Qualche lieve strofinatura. Tagli gialli. Una leggerissima ed ininfluente brunitura al margine bianco di due frontespizi ma esemplare in ottime condizioni di conservazione. Prima rara edizione e una fra le più ricercate edizioni delle opere teatrali complete di William Shakespeare con la sua vita ed il commento del celebre critico, che curò anche l'edizione, Edmond Malone (1741 - 1812). Una seconda edizione, più comune, che conteneva anche le poesie uscì nel 1790 in dieci volumi. Anche se Malone è considerato aver minor capacità intuitiva e critica di Jhonson viene considerato uno studioso assai migliore di questi. Il suo studio critico in archivi e collezioni private lo portarono a questa edizione considerata come una delle più corrette filologicamente parlando. Questa edizione, come le numerose scoperte di Malone sulla vita e le opere di Shakespeare vengono ancora oggi considerate indispensabili per gli studiosi shekspiriani. Malone "Trasferitosi a Londra, dove frequentò ambienti letterari ed artistici, ha regolarmente visitato Samuel Johnson ed è stato di grande aiuto per James Boswell nella revisione e correzione delle bozze della sua Vita. Amico di Sir Joshua Reynolds, resta famoso soprattutto per aver smascherato l'inganno degli Shakespeare Forgeries, un gruppo di falsi attribuiti a William Shakespeare e scritti in realtà dal diciannovenne William Henry Ireland; i falsi comprendevano alcune lettere di Shakespeare alla moglie Anne Hathaway e altri, un dramma nuovo e una professione di fede. La scoperta fece grande scalpore, salvo poi essere smentita e denunciata dallo stesso Malone.". Esemplare raro ed ancor più raro a trovarsi in queste ottime condizioni di conservazione. A good copy.

        A treatise on the venereal disease

      London: Sold at No. 13, Castle Street, Leicester Square, 1786. [12], 398, [12]pp. 7 plates, each with tissue guard and explanation leaf. 261 x 210 mm. 18th or early 19th century half calf gilt, marbled boards, light wear. First two leaves soiled and with corners repaired, minor foxing, but very good. First edition.The progress of knowledge and treatment of venereal diseases received a setback with the publication of Hunter's treatise, which supported the old theory, current since the sixteenth century, that syphilis and gonorrhea were manifestations of the same venereal pathogen. Hunter's erroneous conclusion was based upon an experiment designed to test this theory, in which an unknown subject was inoculated with infectious matter taken from a gonorrheal patient, who, unbeknownst to Hunter, had also contracted syphilis. When the subject developed syphlitic symptoms, Hunter interpreted this result as validation of the theory, as eighteenth-century medical doctrine did not recognize the possibility of mixed infection.Qvist, in his biography of Hunter, has effectively debunked the myth that Hunter performed the above-mentioned experiment on himself, a myth first publicized in d'Arcy Power's Hunterian Oration of 1925. As evidence for the untruth of this myth, Qvist cites the report of the autopsy performed on Hunter, which did not list any pathological changes that might have been caused by syphilis, but rather indicates beyond the shadow of a doubt that Hunter died from coronary artery disease of atheromatous origin. Qvist also mentions the fact that Hunter never described himself as the subject of this experiment or as a sufferer from venereal disease (this in contrast to the vividly personal accounts he left of his other ailments), and points out that Hunter subscribed to the common eighteenth-century medical practice of performing experiments on other human subjects.The Treatise on the venereal disease was the first book issued from Hunter's private press, which he established in 1786 at his house on Castle Street in an attempt to prevent the unauthorized publication of cheap and foreign editions of his works. 1,000 copies of the first edition were printed.

        Numa Pompilius, second roi de Rome

      Didot l'aîné, Paris 1786 - In-8 (113 x 185 mm), 2 ff. n. ch., 418 pp., 1 f. n. ch. Maroquin rouge, triple filet d'encadrement, dos lisse orné, pièces de titre et d'éditeur avec la date en maroquin olive, filets sur les coupes et les coiffes, roulette intérieure, tranches dorées, faux-titre remonté sur onglet, coiffe supérieure légèrement fendillée (reliure de l'époque). Édition originale. Ce récit est inspiré de la vie de Numa Pompilius (-715, -673), le deuxième roi légendaire de Rome. À l'instar de Gonzalve de Cordoue (1791), autre roman de l'auteur, l'ouvrage s'inscrit dans la tradition des grands romans héroïques du XVIIe siècle. Il est illustré d'un frontispice de Queverdo gravé en taille-douce par Dambrun. Jean-Pierre Claris de Florian (Château de Florian près de Sauve 1755-Sceaux 1794) est considéré comme le meilleur fabuliste français après La Fontaine. Il perd sa mère très jeune et est élevé au château de Florian par son oncle, lié par alliance à Voltaire. Il vécut deux ans à Ferney auprès de Voltaire qui le surnommait Florianet. Sous la protection du duc de Penthièvre, il fut nommé page, gentilhomme ordinaire puis officier de dragons de son régiment. Ses chansons, poèmes, pastorales, nouvelles, traductions de Cervantès, romans et pièces de théâtre lui donnèrent de nombreux succès. Il fut élu à l'Académie française en 1782. Ses chansons, comme Plaisir d'amour, étaient très recherchées des musiciens. Certaines de ses morales et expressions de ses fables sont passées à la postérité : Pour vivre heureux vivons cachés ; Rira bien qui rira le dernier? Proche des Bourbons, il fut incarcéré à la prison de la Bourbe pendant un mois et mourut peu après n'ayant pu supporter cet événement. Trois ex-libris grattés dont un avec le chiffre A.S. Très bel exemplaire en maroquin de l'époque. Quérard, La France littéraire, III, p. 141 ; Cioranescu, Bibliographie de la littérature française du XVIIIe siècle, II, p. 801, n°28775.

        OBSERVATIONS SUR LA VIRGINIE, PAR M. J*** TRADUITES DE L'ANGLOIS. French translation by the Abbé André Morellet.

      Paris: Chez Barrois l'ainé, 1786. - [4],viii,290pp plus [4]pp. errata and folding letterpress table. Without the map. Half title. Three-quarter calf and contemporary marbled boards, neatly rebacked. Minor foxing and soiling. Very good. The first edition of NOTES. was printed privately for Jefferson in 1785 in an edition limited to 200 copies, which he distributed to personal friends. Initially Jefferson had resisted the idea of publishing the work so that it could reach a larger audience. However, the widespread interest the book aroused soon led to rumors that a pirated edition would appear, and to forestall this, regular published editions came out with his blessing in French (the present work, OBSERVATIONS. translated by the Abbe Morallet and published in Paris in 1786) and in English (London, 1787) soon followed by an American edition (Philadelphia, 1788). The work ultimately went through several dozen editions before his death, and remains in print today. This is the only book- length work published during Jefferson's lifetime and is a cornerstone of any collection of printed Americana. The first private edition is virtually unobtainable, making this edition not only the first published edition, but also the first which is even remotely obtainable. Jefferson originally wrote NOTES. in response to a series of queries sent to him by French diplomat François Barbé-Marbois, composing them after the defeat of the British at Yorktown in 1781. On the urging of their mutual friend, distinguished French soldier and scientist the Marquis de Chastellux, he later expanded his responses into a series of twenty-three essays on every aspect of his native state; geography, landforms, products, agriculture, climate, population, armed forces, Indians, towns, laws, religion, manners, and history. NOTES. is vastly informative, but it was also a mirror of Jefferson's tastes and personality. J.M. Edelstein noted: "Jefferson wrote about things which interested him deeply and about which he knew a great deal; the NOTES, therefore, throws a fascinating light on his tastes, curiosities, and political and social opinions."

        Coleccion de instrucciones pastorales, que en diferentes ocasiones, y con varios motivos publico para edificacion de los fieles Ö.

      Madrid, Imprenta Real, 1786. - Engraved portrait, 367 pp.; (1 l., 1 l. errata), pp. [369]-830. 2 volumes.@ 4?, contemporary speckled calf with gilt borders, spine gilt with red label, edges rouged, marbled endpapers. Light marginal staining on title-page of volume I. Overall fine. 2 volumes.@ ---- FIRST EDITION in this form; all the works had previously appeared elsewhere. Volume I has a fine portrait of the author drawn by Joaquin Ynza and engraved by Juan Antonio Salvador Carmona. Included in the @Coleccion is a section on the 1780-1782 Tupac Amaru rebellion in Peru, the foremost of the eighteenth-century Indian revolutions (I, 225-41). San Alberto also deals with orphanages in CÛrdoba (I, 242-367) and war against pagan Indians (II, 524-33), and sets out an interesting "Relox espiritual para llevar a Dios presente en toda hora" (II, 774-813), illustrated with woodcut diagrams of clocks. Frei JosÈ Antonio de San Alberto (1727-1804), born in the Aragonese town of Fresno, professed in the Carmelite convent in Zaragoza in 1744 and was named prior of the Convent of St. Theresa in 1766. He later became Procurador General of the Order in Madrid and acted as royal preacher and Examinador Sinodal for the Archbishop of Toledo. In 1778 he was appointed Bishop of CÛrdoba de Tucum n by King Charles III, and in 1786 became Bishop of La Plata. He was one of the outstanding prelates of the late colonial period in Latin America, known for his learning and for his charity to the poor. For his contributions to education, he has been compared to Domingo F. Sarmiento, father of the educational system in Argentina. RenÈ-Moreno comments, "The characteristics of the writings of San Alberto are: persuasive reasoning based upon a great deal of first-hand knowledge of the sacred scriptures and canons. They follow a simple and cohesive structure and a mellifluous tone which draws even the most profane readers. This last feature has assured a lasting success to his writings" (no. 508).---- Palau 289474: calling for a portrait and 418 + 369 + 830 pp. [@sic]. Medina, @BHA 5208: collating as this copy.

        Catechismus Romanus: ex decreto Concilii Tridentini iussu S. Pii V editus.

      [Rome], Propaganda Fide, 1786 [= 1787]-1787.. 2 volumes. 8vo. The pages progress from right to left like a normal Arabic book. With an Arabic title-page on the second page of each volume, each with the Propaganda Fide's woodcut Jesus and apostles device and each preceded (on the back of the same leaf) by a Latin half-title. Further with woodcut tail-pieces, 1 woodcut decorated initial, and tailpieces and factotums built up from cast fleurons. Set in 2 sizes of nashk Arabic type, with the 13-page dedication to Pope Pius VI and a few other preliminary pages also in Latin on the facing pages, set in roman and italic type. [40], "976" [= 980]; [8], "855" [= 847], [1 blank] pp. Early 19th-century half sheepskin parchment, sewn on recessed cords with a hollow back, hand-lettered spine titles, shell-marbled sides, brown sprinkled edges.. First unabridged Arabic edition of the catechism translated from the Latin version authorized by the Council of Trent and the most extensive Arabic catechism ever published, comprising 1827 pages plus preliminaries. It follows the Roman Catholic rite and was printed and published by the Propaganda Fide in Rome. It is based on the Latin text authorized by the Council of Trent under Pope Pius V, first published in Latin in 1566. While some small Arabic catechisms of a few dozen pages had been printed as early as 1580, only a few more extensive ones had appeared, with Bellarmino's growing from 86 pages (not including the parallel Latin text) in 1613 to 411 pages in 1770 and De Beauvais and Richelieu's 1640 Paris edition comprising 415 pages. The present edition is probably the most extensive Arabic work that the Propaganda Fide ever published. Volume 1 is dated 1786 on the Latin half-title and it may have been issued without the dedication (quires *-2*) in that year, but the dedication is dated 22 December 1787 and volume 2 is dated 1787 on the half-title. The Vatican established the Propaganda Fide in 1622 to promote Catholic missionary work, especially in the Middle and Near East, and it set up its own printing office in Rome in 1626. The printing office acquired many types for exotic languages from various earlier Roman printing offices that had operated under the authority of or in close cooperation with the Vatican and also had many new types cut for them, mostly by their own in-house punchcutters. In this way they assembled what was probably the largest collection of exotic printing types in the world, most of them exclusive to their press. The press had declined in the 18th-century, but began to flourish again when the future cardinal Sefano Borgia took chage of the Propaganda Fide and Giovanni Cristoforo Amaduzzi of the press in 1770. The type used for the main text of the present catechism was cut for the Propaganda Fide, probably in-house, and first used for Tommaso Obizzino, Thesaurus Arabico-Syro-Latina, 1636. With a nineteenth-century library stamp, apparently from the Propaganda Fide's own college, in the unprinted areas on both Arabic title-pages (only partly legible, but apparently reading "Pont. Univ. de Propaganda Fide"). With occasional minor and mostly marginal foxing and an occasional quire slightly browned, but otherwise in very good condition, with only an occasional tiny hole or small marginal chip. Only slightly trimmed, preserving an occasional deckle. The most ambitious Arabic catechism produced to this date. - Schnurrer 308; WorldCat (2 copies); not in Smitskamp, Philologia orientalis.

        [Vathek] An Arabian Tale, from an Unpublished Manuscript: with Notes Critical and Explanatory

      London: Printed for J. Johnson, 1786. First edition, ordinary paper copy. Five woodcut illustrations on page 316. vii, [i], 334 pp., lacking terminal blank. 1 vols. 8vo. Late 19th-century full polished calf, green morocco spine label. Joints repaired, early inscription to title-page washed and faintly visible.

Five woodcut illustrations on page 316. vii, [i], 334 pp., lacking terminal blank. 1 vols. 8vo. The first edition of Beckford's Oriental tale, a cornerstone of Gothic and Romantic literature. Although Beckford's wish was that it be first published in the original French, the translator, Samuel Henley, and the English publisher proceeded to print this unauthorized English edition of Vathek, causing the author a great deal of stress. According to Rothschild, the Laussanne edition showed a "marked anglicism of phrase," which led some to believe that the French edition was a re-translation from the English, on the theory that Henley was in possession of the original manuscript (cf. J.W. Carter in "The Laussanne edition of Beckford's Vathek"). Chapman and Hodgkin 3(A)[i]; Rothschild 354

One can not appreciate this great historical work, well-documented, and very seriously, without taking into account the special characteristics of the offender; which was an early feminist, the first woman in charge of a newspaper editor, politician and writer wife, Louise welcomed Keralio did not choose the emblematic figure of Elizabeth and Essex at random, this monarch in her bearing the same masculine virtues as the strongest sovereigns. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Edition originale, illustrée d'un portrait de Wander Werff gravé par Thomas au frontispice. Les cinq tomes sont parus de 1786 à 1788 pour le dernier contenant les pièces justificatives. Reliures en pleine basane mouchetée d'époque. Dos à cinq nerfs ornés de caissons et fleurons dorés, ainsi que de pièces de titre et de tomaison de maroquin rouge et brun. Filet à froid en encadrement des plats frappés en leur centre (plat supérieur) d'une petite tour dorée. Roulette dorée sur les coupes et les coiffes. Toutes tranches rouges. Bel exemplaire, à l'emblème non identifié. On ne saurait apprécier ce grand ouvrage d'histoire, fort documenté, et très sérieux, sans prendre en compte la personnalité toute particulière de son auteur ; celle qui fut une féministe avant l'heure, première femme responsable d'un journal et rédactrice en chef, politicienne et femme de lettres, Louise félicité de Keralio n'a pas choisi la figure emblématique d'Elisabeth d'Angleterre au hasard, cette monarque portant selon elle les mêmes vertus masculines que les souverains les plus forts.

        A treatise on the venereal disease

      Sold at No. 13, Castle Street, Leicester Square, London 1786 - [12], 398, [12]pp. 7 plates, each with tissue guard and explanation leaf. 261 x 210 mm. 18th or early 19th century half calf gilt, marbled boards, light wear. First two leaves soiled and with corners repaired, minor foxing, but very good. First edition.The progress of knowledge and treatment of venereal diseases received a setback with the publication of Hunter's treatise, which supported the old theory, current since the sixteenth century, that syphilis and gonorrhea were manifestations of the same venereal pathogen. Hunter's erroneous conclusion was based upon an experiment designed to test this theory, in which an unknown subject was inoculated with infectious matter taken from a gonorrheal patient, who, unbeknownst to Hunter, had also contracted syphilis. When the subject developed syphlitic symptoms, Hunter interpreted this result as validation of the theory, as eighteenth-century medical doctrine did not recognize the possibility of mixed infection.Qvist, in his biography of Hunter, has effectively debunked the myth that Hunter performed the above-mentioned experiment on himself, a myth first publicized in d'Arcy Power's Hunterian Oration of 1925. As evidence for the untruth of this myth, Qvist cites the report of the autopsy performed on Hunter, which did not list any pathological changes that might have been caused by syphilis, but rather indicates beyond the shadow of a doubt that Hunter died from coronary artery disease of atheromatous origin. Qvist also mentions the fact that Hunter never described himself as the subject of this experiment or as a sufferer from venereal disease (this in contrast to the vividly personal accounts he left of his other ailments), and points out that Hunter subscribed to the common eighteenth-century medical practice of performing experiments on other human subjects.The Treatise on the venereal disease was the first book issued from Hunter's private press, which he established in 1786 at his house on Castle Street in an attempt to prevent the unauthorized publication of cheap and foreign editions of his works. 1,000 copies of the first edition were printed.

        Geschichte des Sklaverey, und Charakter der Bauern in Lief- und Ehstland. Ein Beytrag zur Verbesserung der Leibeigenschaft. Nebst der genauesten Berechnung eines Liefländischen Haakens.

      - (Riga, Hartknoch?), 1786. 8vo. 310 pp. Some spotting and minor stains in margin. Worn contemporary paper boards. Owner?s signature on front paste down. Winkelmann 3993. First edition of von Jannau?s most important work, in which he sharply criticized serfdom in the Baltic region. In his writing he advocated enlightened absolutism and the improvement of the lives of the serfs through gradual reforms, such as reduction of the corvée, the establishment of state supervision and guardianship over the peasants, and the expansion of the peasant school system. His book strongly influenced for instance Kotzebue and Garlieb Merkel. But, because of his views, he also came in conflict with the landowners and the German aristocracy is Livonia. Heinrich Johann von Jannau (1753-1821), was a livonian priest, historian and publicist, from an old Bohemian family. He was born in Holstres (Holtstfershof) in Livonia and studied first in Riga Cathedral School, under the leadership of Johann Gottfried Herder, and then in Göttingen, where he was influenced by the enlightenment through A. L. von Schlözer. He worked as pastor in P lva from 1776 to 1779 and in Laiuse (Lais) from 1779 to 1821. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Portrait engraving by Christian Rombstedt after Johann Caspar Höckner. After 1666

      194 x 162 mm. Trimmed and laid down. . Reproduced in MGG Vol. 7, col. 1786. "Although he lived only 32 years Krieger's fame as a composer of songs was well established before his death. The 110 songs in his two principal collections are his most important music, and with them he brought German song to a new peak of development, firmly establishing Italian expressiveness in a tradition hitherto dominated largely by simple strophic songs influenced by French and Dutch models... Krieger's songs remained popular well into the 18th century, and some of the melodies were turned into chorales, a few of which appear in Bach's cantatas." John H. Baron in Grove Music Online.
