Friedrich August Wolf
1787. Autore: Friedrich August Wolf Titolo: Geschichte der Romischen Litteratur nebst biographischen und litterarischen Nachrichten von den lateinischen Schriftstellern, ihren Werken und Ausgaben Luogo di stampa: Halle Editore: In der Hemmerdeschen Buchhandlung Anno: 1787 Condizioni: leggere attentamente la descrizione nella scheda In 16 (cm 11 x 19), pp. 46 + (2 bianche). Diffuse fioriture alle pagine. Brossura muta coeva con qualche mancanza ai piatti. Edizione originale, molto rara, di questa importante operetta ('Storia della letteratura romana insieme a notizie biografiche e letterarie degli scrittori latini, le loro opere ed edizioni') di Friedrich August Wolf (1759-1824), considerato l'iniziatore della moderna storiografia delle letterature classiche. 'La data, se cosi' vogliamo dire epocale, e' il 1787, anno in cui si inaugura il Seminarium Philologicum di Halle e anno di edizione di 'Geschichte der Romischen Litteratur nebst biographischen…', 45 pagine in tutto di un volumetto, poco piu' di un canovaccio di lezioni riservate agli scolari dei corsi universitari ('Ein Leitfaden fur akademische Vorlesungen', come suona il sottotitolo) ma gia' pronte - grazie alla scelta della lingua moderna – ad assumere i connotati di strumento di mediazione tra il mondo della ricerca specialistica e un pubblico di non (o non ancora specialisti)'. Cfr. 'Friedrich August Wolf e la scienza dell'antichita'', 1997, p. 194.

Pfeiffer-- François Joseph
DE SCHUTTERIJ OP HET KONINGSPLEIN "Gezigt van de parade der Amsterdamsche burger cavallerie op 't konings-plein 1787", stippel-ets vervaardigd door Fran?ois Joseph Pfeiffer, naar een tekening van Jean George Teissier, uitgegeven door Dirk Meland Langeveld. Later met de hand gekleurd. Afm. ca. 35 x 46 cm. We zien het Koningsplein in Amsterdam, komende vanuit de Heiligeweg naar de Herengracht en (in de achtergrond) de Leidsestraat, links de bloemenmarkt en rechts het Singel. De prent is een momentopname (eind september 1787) uit de periode dat de Republiek der Zeven Verenigde Nederlanden in crisis verkeert. Ons land balanceerde op het randje van een burgeroorlog tussen politieke vernieuwers (de patriotten) en aanhangers van stadhouder Willem V. De patriotten hadden zich sinds 1780 georganiseerd om bestuurlijke misstanden aan de kaak te kunnen stellen en om de incapabele stadhouder Willem V te controleren en in zijn macht te beperken. In 1784 braken in Rotterdam rellen uit tussen patriotten en orangisten. Op 15 september 1785 ontvluchtte Willem V Den Haag, nadat de Staten van Holland hem hadden ontheven van zijn functie als bevelhebber van het Haagse garnizoen. In Amsterdam en Rotterdam werden eind april 1787 een aantal prinsgezinde vroedschapsleden en burgemeesters vervangen, zonder goedkeuring van de stadhouder. De patriottische euforie zou echter maar kort duren. In juni 1787 besloot Wilhelmina van Pruisen, de vrouw van de stadhouder, terug te gaan naar Den Haag om de orangisten daar op te wekken tot verzet tegen de patriotten. Bij Goejanverwellesluis werd ze aangehouden, w … [Click Below for Full Description]

His naturalist labor in the country led him to build a collection of natural history -namely- marine specimens collected by him, which he exhibited in Havana in custom made furniture; his collection was later partially acquired by … [Click Below for Full Description]

HEARNE, Joseph.
Moscow, 1787. Watercolour over pencil, heightened with pen and black ink (49.5 x 73.2 cm); signed lower left 'Joseph Hearn 1787 The Crimline [sic] at Masco [sic]'; mounted and framed (79 x 98 cm). impressive eighteenth century watercolour of one of Russia's most iconic views Moscow's legendary landmark is here depicted from the East, overlooking the Bolshoy Moskovetsky Bridge and the Moskva river. Joseph Hearne travelled to Russia in 1787 and on his arrival produced a series of watercolours of Moscow and St Petersburg, most of which are now in the collections of the Hermitage and the Russian Museum. Hearne's reputation rests largely on six engravings of Petersburg views which Thomas Malton produced from the original watercolours to sell both in London and in Russia. The set was to become the most popular publication since Makhaev's jubilee prints of 1753, partly due to Malton's use of aquatint but also thanks to the lively atmosphere Hearne captured. The attention given to the personable side of city life in conjunction with the architectural grandeur is seen in the present watercolour, with the Kremlin sitting proudly on its fortified pedestal beside Muscovites going about their daily life.

BURNS, Robert.
Edinburgh: printed for the Author, and sold by William Creech, 1787. Edinburgh: printed for the Author, and sold by William Creech,, 1787. In contemporary sheep Octavo (204 x 127 mm). Contemporary sheep, red morocco label. Engraved frontispiece portrait. Bound without half-title, paper repairs to lengthy closed tear on pp. 203/204 affecting text though without loss, a couple of other minor peripheral paper repairs not affecting text. Light rubbing, trivial wear at tips; the contents with some light foxing and finger-soiling, occasional light creasing and a few peripheral nicks; notwithstanding, a very desirable copy in contemporary sheep. First Edinburgh edition, the second overall, in an attractive contemporary binding. This edition was preceded only by the highly rare Kilmarnock edition of 1786, from which it was expanded, containing twenty-two new pieces, including "To a Haggis", and the first appearance in print of "Death and Doctor Hornbook", which had been omitted from the Kilmarnock edition. Two printers were used, resulting in variations in some sheets of the edition. This copy has the first state points: the misprint "Duke of Boxburgh" for "Roxburgh" in the list of subscribers on page xxxvii, and the correct printing of the Scots word "skinking" (meaning watery) on page 263, later misprinted as "stinking".

NAVAL; French.)
[?Paris, n.d. c.1787]. Large landscape single-sheet (1030 x 690 mm). Light browning, some short edge-splits, lower corners with small repairs, a little staining in the upper margin, but overall very good. Entirely calligraphic table in brown, red and green ink; broad gilt rules; handsome water-colour sprigs of flowers; coloured squadron pennants, heightened in gold; and large central arms of the duc d'Artois. Elegant, superbly-finished presentation tabulation of the strength of the French navy at this historically crucial period, just four years after its vital role in the American War of Independence, and two before the outbreak of the French Revolution. In the latter half of the eighteenth century, as the French state set about systematizing and centralizing its practices, more plainly-presented versions of these statistical digests were circulated for purely informational purposes. However, this beautifully finished example was clearly produced for prominent display or high level presentation, the arms of the duc d'Artois - Philippe Egalité, later Charles X - suggesting that it was commissioned either by him, or for him. Separate tables show the composition of the fleets based at the three departements - Brest, Toulon and Rochefort - showing the respective squadrons and their pavillons, or pennants, and in terms of ships of the line and auxiliary ships, armament and manning, all ships being named and their launch dates given. The central panels give a comparison of the strengths of the peace- and war-time establishments; tables of the numbers and distribution of Marine f … [Click Below for Full Description]

SAINT-VICTOR, Louis Guillemain
Heliopolis [i.e. Paris]: 1787. I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I have many more photos on my website...just ask. Books on freemasonry, published in the 18th-century are notoriously rare and difficult to obtain. This book is a rare and important collection of Adonhiramite masonry catechisms, writings, and doctrine by Louis Guillemain de Saint-Victor. It discusses freemason lodges, songs, and reflections within an assortment of small works dedicated to Freemasonry in France during the 18th-century. This book also dictates the origins of that branch of freemasonry. Adonhiramite Freemasonry is loosely based on and taken from Jewish Scriptures and traditions which shed light on masonic legends. It is largely attributed to Saint-Victor because of this work and is named after Adonhiram, who first appears in the Book of Samuel in the Old Testament. Adonhiramite Freemasonry is often considered the 'orthodox faith' of Freemasonry. Adonhiramite Freemasons are essentially disciples of Hiram Abif, the architect of the Temple of Adonhiram and are subject to the twelve degrees associated with Adonhiramites. (Mackey).

AFRICA - SLAVE TRADE / SENEGAL] PELLETAN, [Jean Gabriel
Ve. Panckoucke, 1787. First Edition. Pelletan served as the director of the Compagnie de Sénégal, the administrative company for the colony, in 1787 and 1788, though the present work was composed from memory while Pelletan was imprisoned in 1793 at the height of La Terreur. The "Mémoire" provides geographical descriptions of the western coast of the African continent as well as an account of imports and exports, the latter chiefly rubber and slaves (Pelletan mentions 1000 to 1200, perhaps for the years under his administration, prior to the suppression of the slave trade). The second half of the work deals primarily in describing the ravages of the slave trade on the country and it people: "It is without a doubt that the abolition of the slave trade will completely change the face of the region, devastated for centuries by ceaseless warfare, crippled by the enslavement of portions of its peoples, and depopulated by this horrific commerce conducted by degraded persons and greedy European merchants+ who can only satisfy their avarice at the price of the blood and freedom of these miserable Africans" (our translation; pp. 48-9). Pelletan also dedicates brief sections to the moral and physical attributes of the Senegalese inhabitants, as well as a description of their homes and pottery, before proposing a detailed outline for a new,m post-slave trade colonial government for the region. (See George E. Brooks, "Western Africa and Cabo Verde, 1790s-1830s" (2010), p. 13; and Paul Masson, "Marseille et la Colonisation Française" (1906), pp. 231-2.).

[BEATTIE (James)]:
Edinburgh: Printed for William Creech, Edinburgh; and T. Cadell, 1787. FIRST EDITION. 8vo (in 4s), 180 x 109 mms., pp. [ii], 121 [122 blank], contemporary sheepskin, morocco label; clean tear from outer to inner margin in C4, lacks half-title, spine a little dried, covers a little spotted.David Hume can lay claim to having published the first attempt at a list of Scot[t]icisms as a supplement in his Political Discourses (1752), and a list of six pages as complied by Hume was issued in 1770, with no attribution or author. Beattie (1735 - 1803) published a short list of 200 Scotticisms in Aberdeen in 1779, but the present edition is greatly expanded. The whole issue of correct English, both usage and pronunciation, was a vexing one for the North Britons in the 18th century, some nourishing and cherishing any departure from post-Dryden English, while others eagerly sought to extirpate any notion of grammatical, aural, or syntactical improprieties from their speech and writing. In 1793, Beattie wrote to the song-writer George Thomson, "I can by no means reconcile myself to Broad Scotch words, which the longer I live, I dislike the more."[Attributes: First Edition]

Varnum, James M.
Providence: John Carter, 1787. First edition. iv, 60 pp. 1 vols. 8vo. Contemporary wrappers, spine with some loss. First edition. iv, 60 pp. 1 vols. 8vo. A Landmark of the Principle of Judicial Review. In 1786, the Rhode Island legislature had passed laws requiring the acceptance of Rhode Island paper currency as legal tender without discount and providing that violators should be tried without jury. Varnum, as counsel for Weeden, was a member of the Continental Congress, and argued that the legislature could not abolish the right to a jury trial, and that the courts had the right to set aside the law. Rhode Island's original charter did not mention trial by jury although an act of the Assembly had in 1663 specifically affirmed the right. Varnum contended that Americans had the rights common to all Englishmen, and the law was overturned. Varnum's arguments were published shortly before the Constitutional Convention, and were cited by Madison seventeen years later in Marbury v. Madison. The first well-documented American case of an act of the legislature being overturned by the judiciary. Alden 1105; Evans 20825. Sabin 98638; Kress B1355; JCB (3) I:3167 [Attributes: First Edition]

[DUNTHORNE, James junior]
[London or Colchester,: , c1787]. [London or Colchester,, c1787].. 360 by 540mm. (14.25 by 21.25 inches).. Pencil, pen and black ink and watercolour. A charming scene of a book auction, possibly held at Sotheby's, or Leigh & Sotheby at the time. The room is dominated by a great bookcase which is being hand-picked by a young porter up a ladder. The crowd is fashionably dressed and caught in a variety of poses, such as greeting each other and conversing, eying the bidder in the back of the room, checking the catalogue, and perusing one of the recent purchases, as the seated lady in the middle is doing. The smiling auctioneer is about to knock down his gavel, and the scribe below intent in recording the sale. The drawing was exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1787 and was marked as 'for sale'. It is the work of James Dunthorne junior (c1758-1794), an artist from Colchester, his father also a painter mostly of portraiture and miniature works, who worked as a mapmaker and surveyor on the side. Dunthorne junior ran a print shop on Colchester High Street, and exhibited 14 works at the Royal Academy between 1783 and 1792, with the exception of four years (1785, 1786, 1788, 1789). His favoured themes were mostly genre and domestic subjects, and a number of his drawings were engraved by the artist and caricaturist Thomas Rowlandson, thus showing that Dunthorne junior had some reputation as an artist (Benham). Some of his works include 'Private Card Party', showing a fashionable party of Colchester elite, 'Morning Concert', 'Skating', 'A bath shop', and 'The Pieman'.

Antique-style calf, gilt ornamental border on boards, gilt leather label. Moderate foxing and toning. Extensive annotations in light pencil. Very good overall. The first periodical printing of the United States Constitution, probably issued within a week of its release as a broadside. The Constitutional Convention ratified its final draft on Monday, Sept. 17, 1787. The following day, Sept. 18, the broadside version, issued for members of the Convention, was printed by Dunlap and Claypoole, the official printers. On Sept. 19 the same printers issued the first public printing of the Constitution in their newspaper, THE PENNSYLVANIA PACKET. The present magazine was probably printed late in the week, and the final signature, containing the Constitution and recent news, was probably printed on Saturday, Sept. 22. This is the last internal date, on the last page, and actually refers to an event that took place on the 17th as "Monday last." From a survey of Mott's HISTORY OF AMERICAN MAGAZINES in the period, it seems that it was common practice to issue monthly publications by the last week of every month. This issue would seem to have been out and in general circulation by Monday the 24th, one week after the end of the Convention. Its version of the Constitution was executed, most likely, on the 22nd, four days after the official broadside and three days after the first public, newspaper, appearance.

A Pharmacopoea Holmiensis (i.e. Stockholm) was put together (1686). It was not widely distributed in the country, and the need for a more complete compilation led to court physician A. Bäck being commissioned to compose a new pharmacopoeia. He was assisted by Linnaeus, who primarily contributed to the section on the effects and uses of medicines. This document, (Materia medica), contained some 380 simple substances, the section on "Praeparata et Composita" some 400 chemical preparations - as well as a list of substances to induce vomiting (emeticorum), compounds containing mercury, opium, and an alphabetical index. The pharmacopoeia also described how plant drugs should be dried, pulverization, etc. Pharmacopoea Svecica appeared in 1775, that is, three years before Linnaeus passed away" (Meyerson, Linné on line).With a Swiss library stamp on title-page ("Société vaudoise de médecine").

Holy Bible
Edinburgh: the assigns of Alexander Kincaid, His Majesty's P, 1787. I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I have many more photos on my website...just ask. Alexander Kincaid was a famous 18th-century Scottish printer who is best known for printing works of David Hume, John Milton, Adam Smith, and a fine edition of the Holy Bible. Scottish Bibles from the 18th-century are notably rare and this example is no exception. Published in 1787, this particular Bible is bound with the Church of Scotland's 1799 edition of 'Translations and Paraphrases' - a collection of several scripture passages prepared in poetic form.
