        Autograph musical manuscript of the Capriccio for piano solo [Hoboken Gruppe XVII:1], signed and dated "Giuseppe Haydn m[anu] p[rop]ria [1]765." The complete work, based on the 18th century Austrian folk song, Acht Sauschneider müssen seyn

      Oblong folio. 8 leaves. 317 x 227 mm. Sewn into a tastefully executed full vellum binding in period style, with title label lettered in gilt inset to upper board. Notated in sepia ink on 9 pages with 8 staves per page. Pages [1] (autograph title), [2]-[10] autograph music, [11]-[16] blank. Paper most probably of Italian manufacture, with watermark of three half-moons, a crown and the letters "B.T." 374 measures of autograph music in total. Last two leaves partially joined; title slightly stained; minor ink stains to last three leaves; stain to last leaf, possibly wine; outer leaves slightly soiled; central crease throughout. Untrimmed. With 19th century notation to upper right corner of title in the hand of the important Austrian music publisher Tobias Haslinger (1787-1842) stating that the manuscript was once a part of his collection: "No. 39. der Original Manuscripten Sammlung von Tob. Haslinger." Haslinger is the earliest recorded owner of the manuscript. The notation "handschrift" to lower right corner of title in a contemporary hand and, in another hand, the words "Das Wort, handschrift ist von Abbe Stadler geschrieben, das Manuscript aber ist Haydn eigenhandige Handschrift" to lower blank margin, indicating that the writer believed the notation "handschrift" to be written by the composer and friend of Haydn, Abbe Maximilian Stadler (1748- 1833) attesting to the fact that the manuscript is in Haydn's autograph. The numbers "108" and "172" to upper right corner of title in an early hand, the leaves numbered in pencil (1-8) in a later hand. Haydn has added the word "Fine" at the conclusion of the work, with "Laus Deo" below. Provenance: Tobias Haslinger; the Selden-Goth Collection; the collection of Friedrich Georg Zeilis, catalogue p. 84-85. The manuscript is executed in Haydn's characteristic hand of the period. It exhibits considerable energy and is, in all likelihood, the composing manuscript. . First published in Vienna by Artaria in 1788. "Of Haydn’s few keyboard works outside the sonatas, the most important are two capriccios – Acht Sauschneider müssen sein in G (hXVII:1, 1765), a variation rondo with an immense tonal range, and hXVII:4 in C (1789), another tonally wide-ranging work with elements of sonata-rondo form..." James Webster in Grove online "... this Capriccio appears to have been written with the fortepiano and not the harpsichord or clavichord in mind... using the tonic and the appearance of the theme in the tonic, Haydn spans a huge arch between the beginning and the end of the work: all this is musical thought on a very grand scale, and with this Capriccio Haydn achieved the finest keyboard work of this early period... One final point to be noted in the Capriccio is Haydn's delicate flirtation with the third-oriented keys: e to c, g to b flat to g. Here we have the remote beginnings of a subject which will continue to fascinate Haydn all through his life." Robbins Landon: Haydn: Chronicle and Works, Vol. I, pp. 551-552.

        Doctor Edvard Youngs Nätter.

      Öfversättning ifrån engelskan. I-II. Sthlm, J. C. Holmberg, 1787-90. 8:o. 196,(1) + (2),221,(1) s. Lätt nött elegant hfrbd från 1830-talet med breda upphöjda bind, rikt guldornerad och blinddekorerad rygg samt röd titeletikett i glättad papp. Grönstänkta snitt. Bakre pärmens insida med en smal remsa inklistrat papper. Några gamla noteringar i blyerts och rödkrita. Bra ex.. Andra upplagan utkom 1791-92 och tredje 1798-99. Översättaren Albrecht von Lantinghausen utbrister i förordet: "hvarest finnas ymnigare öfverflöd af rika tankebilder, eldigare uttryck och mera rörande ämnen än i Youngs Nätter?" Den svenska utgåvan är en prosaöversättning av Edward Youngs (1683-1765) "The complaint: or, night thoughts" som utkom 1742-45. Poemet anses vara inspirerat av författarens styvdotters död 1736, hennes makes 1740 och Youngs egen frus 1741. Av ett tidigare försök att översätta dikten under titeln "Sömnlösa nätter" utkom bara en första del 1770. Ytterligare en översättning trycktes i andra delen av Hans Bergeströms "poëtiska arbeten" 1784 under titeln "Nattankar" och består av fyra av de nio "nätterna". Detta är därmed den första kompletta översättningen

        The School of Fencing with a General Explanation of the Princpal Attitudes And Positions Peculiar to the Art

      London: The Author, 1787. London: The Author, 1787. Two years after the first edition, in an oblong folio, appeared a second edition with a double column of text English and French and a third in 1767 similar in every respect to the second. In 1787, Henry Angelo, son of Domenico Angelo reproduced his father's book in a smaller format with the English text only and smaller plates. The reduced plates, 47 numbered on 44 sheets, are the same as those which appear in the appendix to Diderot and D Alembert's Encyclopedie Methodius. The elder Angelo, at a young age, first settled in France. He studied the art of fencing and also became a master horseman. He became known as one of the most elegant riders of the high horse. Before leaving France for London, there was a public fencing match at a celebrated hotel in Paris at which were present many of the most renowned professors and amateurs of that science. No sooner was his name announced, the celebrated English beauty Miss Margaret "Peg" Woffington, the renowned actress who, having met Angelo at a party became suddenly captivated by him. She followed him, while in the presence of a crowd of spectators she stepped forward and presented him with a small bouquet of roses. The audience of ladies as well as gentlemen of rank, while surprised at this, were not less struck by the gallant manner with which he received the gift. He placed it on his left breast and addressing the other knights of the sword exclaimed "This will protect against all opposers". The match commenced and he fenced with several of the first masters, not one of whom could disturb a single leaf of the bouquet. Private lessons in fencing were taught at Mr. Angelo & Son School of Fencing, in Eton, Westminster, Harrow, etc. Angelo taught fencing up to a few days before his death at 86. His school continued on through three generations. viii [1] 2-105pp.[8]pp. index, Engraved advertisement for "Mr. Angelo & Son Teach Fencing & The Broad Sword " mounted as a form of frontispiece, beautifully bound by Bayntun of Bath in full decorative calf trimmed in a decorative gilt roll, inner gilt dentelles, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt, finely rebacked to match, raised bands gilt with compartments decoratively stamped in gilt, red leather label gilt. small marginal stain to upper edge of a handful of leaves, page 71 with earlier repair to outer margins.

        Vellum document (printed and manuscript). Printed title: "[blank] Esquire, Governor of the Commonwealth of Virginia, TO ALL TO WHOM these presents shall come, GREETING: KNOW YE, that [ ] Document printed on vellum and completed in manuscript. Signed by then-Lieutenant Governor of Virginia Beverley Randolph (29 May 1787).

      [Richmond, Virginia?] 1787 - Size: 15" x 12" (worn along folds, affecting legibility of one line of manuscript text, soiled); traces of red wax seal. On verso in MS: "Owen Jarrett 172 Acres Greenbrier County." A little known Colonial Virginia imprint, of which no example appear to be in UVA. The document attests to the receipt by the Treasury of the Commonwealth of Virginia "for consideration of the Ancient Composition of One Pound Sterling, paid by one Owen Jarrett into the Treasure of the Commenwealth." The payment is for "adjusting the titles to compensate lands in the District of Augusta, Botetourt and Greenbrier." The 172 acres in question was located in Greenbrier County (in present-day West Virginia) and bounded by Muddy Creek. The life of Owen Jarrett (born 1760/1761 in Berkshire County, Pennsylvania, died 1859 [sic] in Kanawha County, West Virginia), is well documented. In order for the present document to be endorsed by Beverly Randolph as Lieut. Governor, a special insertion of the word "Lieutenant" in MS had to be made. THE TEXT: [Beverley Randolph] Esquire [Lieutenant] Governor of the Commonwealth of Virginia, to all to whom the presents shall come, Greeting: Know ye, that [by virtue of a certificate in right of settlement given by the Commissioners for adjusting titles to compensate Lands in the in the district of Augusta, Botetout and Greenbrier, and in consideration of the ancient composition of one pound sterling paid by Owen Jarrett into the treasury of this Commonwealth] there is granted by the said Commonwealth unto [the said Owen Jarrett] a certain tract or parcel of land containing [one hunred seventy two acres by survey bearing date the second day of May, one thousand seven hundred and eighty five lying and being in the County of Greenbrier on the water of Muddy Creek and bounded as followeth to wit, Beginning at White Oak and Sequoia Tree east sixty poles to a Spanish Oak and Maple, north forty degrees East, thirty poles to two Poplars.

"Erzählerisch am farbigsten, von reicher Thematik und stellenweise hinreißender Sprachgewalt ist sein Hauptwerk, "Ardinghello und die glückseligen Inseln", die erste literarische Gestaltung der Renaissance und zugleich Muster vieler späterer Künstlerromane. Sein Held - ein echter "uomo universale", Maler und Stegreifdichter, auf der Guitarre so geschickt wie mit der Klinge, in allen körperlichen Übungen Meister, Schachspieler, Ingenieur, Korsar, schließlich Religionsstifter und Staatsgründer - ist das von den Fesseln "barbarischer Moral" freie, Leidenschaft und Verstand, Genuß- und Tatkraft in sich vereinende große Individuum, dem in Fiordimona ein weibliches Gegenstück zur Seite gegeben ist. Der Schluß des Buches - dichterische Erfüllung von Heinses Griechenlandsehnsucht - richtet, auf zwei Inseln des Archipelagus, das Idealbild einer vom Geist des kosmischen All-Lebens durchwalteten menschlichen Gesellschaft auf."

His main output was Revolutionary journalism. The present work is in three sections: on swimming in general; on the elements of swimming; and on the establishment of a swimming school. In the first section Feydel gives an account of one rescue he made in particular, and in general the system of rewards in Paris as regards retrieving people from the Seine, so much for a body, and so much for someone still alive: a system open to abuse.Rare: the only copies located in WorldCat are BNF, and Stasbourg.

        Emmerich, eine komische Geschichte vom Verfasser des Siegfried von Lindenberg. Erster - Achter Theil.

      Frankfurt - Leipzig, -, 1787 - 1789.. 4 Bde. 443, 395, 336, 406 S. Priv. HLd. der Zeit.. Vgl. Goed. VI, 937, 12: hier wahrscheinlich die zweite Auflage. Komplett acht Teile in vier Büchern. - Kl. St. a. T., fleckig, leichte Gbrsp. Bd. 1: kl. Nr. a. V., kl. Fraßspur in Marginalie, Ebd. berieben. - Müller, (1743 - 1828), ursprünglich für den Arztberuf bestimmt, brach sein Medizinstudium 1770 ab, um sich ganz einer schriftstellerischen Tätigkeit zu widmen. Seine ersten Werke veröffentlichte er in Zusammenarbeit mit dem Magdeburger Verleger Daniel Christian Hechtel, dessen Tochter er 1771 heiratete. Im selben Jahr machte er sich als Buchhändler und Verleger in Hamburg selbständig. 1773 gründete er eine Verlagsbuchhandlung in Itzehoe, die er jedoch 1783 aus wirtschaftlichen und gesundheitlichen Gründen wieder aufgab, um sich nun ausschließlich seiner literarischen Tätigkeit zu widmen. Müller war vor allem mit komisch-satirischen Romanen nach dem Vorbild des englischen Autors Henry Fielding erfolgreich, die den Geschmack der bürgerlichen Leserschaft trafen. In dem satirischen Roman Siegfried von Lindenberg (1779, Neuausg. 1966) verspottete er Empfindsamkeit und Geniekult. M. veröffentlichte außerdem Gedichte (2 Tle., 1770/71), Komische Romane (8 Bde., 1786-91) und den Roman Sara Reinert (4 Bde., 1796). (DBE)

        Mémoires de m. Goldoni, pour servir a l’histoire de sa vie, et a celle de son théatre. Dédiés au Roi.

      A Paris, Chez la Veuve Duchesne, Libraire, rue Saint-Jacques, au Temple du Goût, 1787 - 3 volumi in -8o (vol. I: pp. [6], 424 ; vol. II: pp. [4], 364 ; vol. III: [4], 366, [2 di cui l’ultima bianca]). Bellissima legatura in cartonato coevo con elegante carta marmorizzata sul dorso. Titolo e tomaison manoscritti su ciascun dorso dei tre volumi. Il frontespizio con marca tipografica è preceduto dal ritratto di Goldoni inciso da Pierre Adrien Le Beau su disegno di Charles Nicolas Cochin datato 1787 e dall’occhietto con titolo «Mémoires de m. Goldoni.» (l’occhietto si trova in ogni tomo). Testatine e finalini silografici. Assente la lista iniziale dei sottoscrittori. Qualche nota manoscritta a matita. Ottimo esemplare, genuino, perfettamente inchiostrato in carta croccante. Prima edizione. Si tratta della prima edizione dei Mémoires goldoniani scritti, in francese, da Goldoni mentre viveva a Parigi (e, infatti, sono dedicati al re Luigi XVI). Essi non sono solamente un’autobiografia del più grande drammaturgo italiano del Settecento, ma costituiscono un documento prezioso per la ricostruzione del panorama teatrale e culturale dell’intera penisola italiana. «Ormai vecchio e lontano dall’Italia da molti anni, [Goldoni] riprendeva e rielaborava i frammenti narrativi sulla propria vita sparsi tra le Prefazioni ai diciassette tomi dell’edizione Pasquali delle sue Opere e gli spunti autobiografici disseminati in varie commedie o, a volte, nelle singole prefazioni a esse. Dal confronto delle varianti e dal riscontro di queste con gli accertamenti documentari, quando è stato possibile, è risultata confermata la volontà goldoniana di subordinare ogni ricordo e ogni omissione intenzionale al disegno del quadro autobiografico che, esattamente come recita il titolo, è funzionale alla illustrazione e alla valorizzazione del suo intervento riformatore sul teatro» (Lucia Strappini, Goldoni Carlo, in DBI).

        Critik der reinen Vernunft. Zweite hin und wieder verbesserte Auflage.

      Riga, Johann Friedrich Hartknoch, 1787. 8vo. Original blue paper boards with original orange-brown paper spine. Contemporary handwritten paper title-label to spine. Minor wear to extremities and spine a bit soiled. All in all very fine. Internally light brownspotting, as usual. One leaf with a neat repair to inner blank margin, not affecting any lettering. Old owner's inscription to front free end-paper. XLIV, 884 pp.. The very important second edition of Kant's monumental main work, -probably the most important work in the history of philosophy since Aristotle. The text of the second, by Kant himself much enlarged and revised, edition is considered the standard version of the "Critique of Pure Reason" - the so-called B-text - and the basis text for all later editions of the work; thus the present version of the work constitutes one of the most important and influential texts in the history of philosophy. The "Critique of Pure Reason" took Kant about a decade to write, and in 1781 the first edition, which is a rarity, appeared. Kant kept working on his magnum opus, and in 1787 the much revised and enlarged second edition of it appeared. It is due to this work that Kant became world famous as one of the three or four greatest philosophers of all times, and the work fundamentally changed the face of philosophy. With this work philosophy is finally provided with a new and comprehensive way of dealing systematically with the problems of philosophy. "In 1770 Kant became professor of logic and metaphysics, and at this point there is a sudden falling off in number of his publications. The cause of this became clear eleven years later when "The Critique of Pure Reason" appeared; and with it Kant became famous. Kant's great achievement was to conclude finally the lines on which philosophical speculation had proceeded in the eighteenth century, and to open up a new and more comprehensive system of dealing with the problems of philosophy... The influence of Kant is paramount to the critical method of modern philosophy. No other thinker has been able to hold with such firmness the balance between speculative and empirical ideas. His penetrating analysis of the elements involved in synthesis, and the subjective process by which these elements are realized in the individual consciousness, demonstrated the operation of "pure reason", and the simplicity and cogency of his arguments achieved immediate fame." (PMM 226 - the first edition).Warda: 60

        Der Kaufmann von Venedig

      . Tusche und Lavierung über Bleistift auf Papier, unten links signiert und datiert: "JH Ramberg inv.t. et delin.t: 1787."; 54,8 x 68,2 cm. Das zeichnerische Talent Johann Heinrich Rambergs äußerte sich bereits sehr früh und die schwärmerische Bewunderung Schillers, der ihn seinen "Freund und Mitbruder in Apoll und den Grazien" nannte, teilten viele seiner Zeitgenossen. Nicht zuletzt George III., durch dessen Protektion es Ramberg möglich wurde nach London zu reisen. Am 25. April 1781 traf der junge Künstler in der englischen Metropole ein und begann umgehend damit, sich einen Namen als herausragender Zeichner zu erarbeiten. Der König bezahlte Logis, Kleidung, Sprachkurs und Ausbildung und Ramberg dankte es ihm mit Besuchen und erstaunlicher Entwicklung seines Talentes. Noch im Jahr seiner Ankunft in London besuchte Ramberg die Royal Academy unter der Anleitung von Benjamin West, der ihn in das Gebiet der Historienmalerei einführte. Ab 1782 nahm er an den Ausstellungen der Akademie teil und gewann 1784 eine Medaille für die beste Zeichnung. Entscheidend für das vorliegende Blatt ist Rambergs frühe Auseinandersetzung mit Shakespeares Theaterstücken, die sich gerade in England und Deutschland zu dieser Zeit einer immer größer werdenden Beliebtheit erfreuten. Der Londoner Unternehmer und Verleger John Boydell entwickelte 1786 das Vorhaben, eine eigene Shakespeare-Galerie zu eröffnen und so die Grundlagen einer nationalen Historienmalerei schuf. Insgesamt umfaßte die Galerie zum Schluß 167 Gemälde von 33 Künstlern. Neben Joshua Reynolds, George Romney, William Hamilton und Johann Heinrich Füssli engagierte Boydell zwei ausländische Künstler: Angelika Kaufmann und den jungen Ramberg. Noch als Ramberg nach Hannover zurückgekehrt war, lieferte er Boydell ein großformatiges Gemälde zu "Was ihr wollt", das dieser dann auch in seinem umfangreichen Projekt der Reproduktion aller Arbeiten seiner Galerie verarbeitete. Doch bereits vor diesem prestigeträchtigen Auftrag widmete sich Ramberg den Stücken Shakespeares und schuf mit seinen Illustration die besten Leistungen seiner Londoner Zeit. Die ersten der ungefähr 36 bekannten Zeichnungen gehen auf das Jahr 1783 zurück und illustrieren eine Ausgabe von "Der Sturm". 1784 schließlich befaßte er sich mit dem Stück "Der Kaufmann von Venedig". Unser Blatt, von der Größe und Ausführung her als eigenständige Arbeit anzusehen, zeigt die erste Szene des vierten Aktes aus diesem Stück, verortet im Gerichtssaal zu Venedig. Shylock ist gerade in Begriff, ein Stück Fleisch aus der Brust Antonios zu schneiden, als Portia einhaltend seinen Arm ergreift. Es ist das "Terry a little; there is something else ", das die Situation umschlagen läßt, und genau diesen Wendepunkt hat Ramberg in seinen Arbeiten zu diesem Stück immer thematisiert. Entgegen zweier früherer Entwürfe für diese Szene, die die Intervention auf kleinem und gedrängtem Raum zeigen, bietet Ramberg in der vorliegenden Arbeit die Szenerie in einem bühnenartigen Aufbau dar. Die Gruppe der Hauptpersonen ist durch jeweils gegenläufige Bewegungsrichtungen dynamisiert und zeigt klar und strukturiert Gefühlswelt und Handlungsraum der einzelnen Personen. Rambergs Zeichenstil zeigt sich in diesem außergewöhnlich imposanten Blatt äußerst dynamisch wogend. Die Umrisse der Figuren werden immer wieder betont nachgezogen, wodurch er nicht nur Volumen sondern auch Bewegung simuliert. Die gekonnt eingesetzte Lavierung verstärkt diesen Effekt. Insgesamt spürt man den Einfluß englischer Zeichner wie Thomas Rowlandson, gleichzeitig verdeutlicht sich bereits hier die motivische und stilistische Eigenart Rambergs. Pointiert schafft er ein Gleichgewicht von kritischem Ernst und heiterer Ironie. In seinen späteren Arbeiten wird er diese Balance weiter ausbauen und damit seine eigene Position zwischen damals so berühmten Karikaturisten und Satirikern wie William Hogarth und James Gillray stärken. Unser Blatt ist eine wichtige Erweiterung des frühen OEuvres Rambergs, verdeutlicht es doch den Grund für die hohe Wertschätzung, die seine Zeichnungen zeitlebens und darüber hinaus genossen haben. In Ausführung und Qualität übertrifft es die meisten Shakespeare-Arbeiten Rambergs und stellt gleichsam einen Kulminationspunkt seiner Bemühungen um Komposition und Linienfindung dar. Im August 1788 kehrte Ramberg zurück nach Hannover, malte den berühmten Vorhang für das königliche Theater und ging 1791 nach Italien. Nach seiner Rückkehr wurde er 1793 zum Hannoveraner Hofmaler ernannt. Seine auch in unserem Blatt sichtbare intensive Einfühlung in die vielschichtigen Figurenkonstellationen sollte es ihm in späteren Jahren ermöglichen, zu einem der wichtigsten Illustratoren Deutschlands zu werden.
