        Sammandrag af Justitiae-Radets Herr Casten [!] Niebuhrs Resa i Levanten och Beskrifning om Arabien.

      Stockholm, Kongl. Ordens-Tryckeriet, 1787. - 8vo. (24), 455, (23) pp. With 4 engr. plates. Contemp. half calf with gilt title label on spine. Extremely rare sole edition of this account of the Niebuhr expedition to Arabia in the 1760s. Produced as a cheaper alternative to the hefty 3-volume sets which appeared in German, Danish, French, and other languages, the present work was printed by the Royal press and gives a summary of the journey intended for a popular audience. Swedish interest in the expedition was elicited by the presence of the Swedish botanist and explorer Peter Forsskål in Niebuhr's caravan. After studying Arabic dialects, Forsskål was the first to scientifically describe many plants of the Arabian Peninsula, before dying in Yemen of malaria in 1763. - The plates, modeled after those of the German edition of 1772, depict a Turkish Pilgrim to Mecca; an Arab woman in a hijab, with an inset detail of a burkha; an Arab farm-girl from the 'Coffee Mountains' of southern Arabia; and an Arab nobleman of Yemen. - Binding rather rubbed; some chipping to spine; blank margin of first few leaves a little toned, otherwise a very good copy, clean and fresh. OCLC shows just 3 copies worldwide: the University of Texas, the Swedish National Library, and the Danish National Library. No copy seen at Anglo-American auction since 1999. OCLC 156793368.

        Herrn M. Blanchard Seine 28te Luftreise zu Nürnberg am 12. Novemb. Ao. 1787. nebst der Gegend wo er auffuhr, der Judenbühl genant.

      O. O., 1787.. Kupferstich von Johann Ludwig Stahl. Bildgr.: 22,5 x 19,5 cm. Drugulin II, 5289. - Am 12. November 1787 startete Jean-Pierre Blanchard (1753-1809) auf dem Judenbühl, dem heutigen Stadtpark, zu einem Schauflug über der Reichsstadt. Nahezu 60000 Zuschauer wurden Zeugen des großen Spektakels. Unter Böllerschüssen, Applaus und Vivatrufen stieg Blanchard um die Mittagszeit in die Lüfte, zuhauf strömten die Zuschauer zu den Stadttoren hinaus, doch der Ballon entfernte sich zu schnell, als dass sie ihm über die Felder hätten folgen können. Südwestlich von Boxdorf setzte der wagemutige Luftfahrer dann eine halbe Stunde später zur Landung an. Unter dem Jubel der Bevölkerung wurde er in die Stadt zurückgeleitet, wo neben mehrtägigen Feierlichkeiten noch weitere Flugexperimente abgehalten wurden. Erst gegen Ende November verließ Blanchard die Stadt, um seine Flugkünste auch in anderen Städten zur Schau zu stellen. - Blanchard war bereits einen Monat vor seinem Flug mit seinen Gerätschaften in Nürnberg eingetroffen, die gegen Eintrittsgeld besichtigt werden konnten. Anlässlich der tollkühnen Aktion wurde ein riesiges Volksfest veranstaltet, bei dem Zuschauerplätze verkauft wurden und Zelte mit Speis und Trank lockten. - Der städtische Rat versuchte für einen reibungslosen Ablauf des Auftritts zu sorgen. So wurden der Verkehr von Fuhrwerken und Kutschen und der Verkauf von Speisen und Getränken geregelt, auch für eine ärztliche Versorgung im Unglücksfall war bestens gesorgt. Selbst die Anzahl der Böllerschüsse beim Start des Ballons war genau festgelegt. - Schönes Dokument zur ersten Ballonfahrt über Nürnberg, dessen Bedeutung sich bis heute in der Nürnberger Redensart erhalten hat: "No schau?ner hie, der rennt wie beim Blenscherd". - Das schöne Blatt zeigt den aufsteigenden Heißluftballon, im Vordergrund eine Zuschauermenge, Kutschen und die umgebende Landschaft. Unter der Darstellung ein Engel und ein kleines Porträt Blanchards. - Gebräunt und etwas braunfleckig.

        La perla de America, Provincia de Santa Marta, reconocida, observada y expuesta en discursos historicos

      1787 - Rare treatise on Santa Marta in Colombia, describing the native population, its mineralogy, and the Guajiros´ language. 1787. Madrid. Antonio de Sancha. In 8vo. 1 [blank] + 1 ff. + xxx + 280 pp. + folding map. Contemporary Spanish calf, spine flat with gilt tooling and red lettering pieces, also lettered in gilt, some minor rubbing and scratching, mainly to boards, over a good-looking original binding. Fine copy, wide margins; overall very clean and fresh, with the seldom-found map. First edition. A rare work, when found with the folding map of the Port of Santa Martha; it is an exhaustive description of the Colombian region, including details of the fauna, flora, and mineralogy (as gold and silver mines), riches, as well as information on the gastronomy and local produces (such as tobacco, coke, cacao, and others). A large portion of the work is dedicated to the native population, namely the Tayronas, Arnacos, Tupes, Chimilas, Motilones and Guagiros, their customs, tradition, and way of living in general –constituting a rather scarcely seen report on the lives of Colombian Indians. The third part deals almost exclusively with the hydrographic reality of Santa Marta, its rivers, and ports. Evidently interested in the native population, Julian dedicates a portion of the work to the study of the language of the Guajiros, saying “that it is clear, short and sonorous, and it appears to him to be the best American-Indian language. He states that he had a dictionary of this tongue in his possession, given him by a cleric, a brother of the Cacique Don Cacilio” (Maggs). Sabin, 36882. Medina, BHA, 5225. Palau, 126001.

L’Académie Royale, représentée par Condorcet, La Place, Cousin et Le gendre, adresse un vibrant hommage (reproduit dans les feuillets préliminaires) à cet essai de l'abbé Haüy, pour avoir diffusé l’ouvrage confidentiel de Franz Aepinus, ‘Tentamen theoriae electricitatis et magnetismi’ (1759), en y introduisant "ordre et précision", en élargissant considérablement ses recherches sur l'électricité, en introduisant la loi de Coulomb, ignorée d’Aepinus, ainsi que les récentes découvertes de Lavoisier, La place, Saussure, Cassini, etc. (cf. Christine Blondel, ‘Haüy et l'électricité ’, R.H.S., 1997, vol. 50, n°50-3, p. 265-282). (Honeymann, n°1620. Wheeler Gift, n°541). Traces de restauration à la reliure.

Edition originale. Dans cet ouvrage, Sénac de Meillhan (1736-1803) attaque les doctrines de Necker auquel il gardait rancune pour avoir été disgracié par ce dernier alors que, intendant général des armées, il ambitionnait de devenir ministre. « Les vues de l'intendant Sénac de Meilhan expriment, d'une manière particulièrement caractèristique, l'opinion des détracteurs du luxe de la fin du XVIIIe siècle. Il considérait la population comme un des piliers de l'Etat an affirmant que sont accroissement anime l'activité économique et contribue ainsi à porter remède au chômage et à la misère ».

        Carte géographique de la Sicilie ou l'on voit la distance qu'il ya de cette isle à l'Italie et la position des isles de Lipari Copiée de Matth Sutteri, par J. Houel, qui l'a verifiée dans les années

      Parigi 1787 - Incisione in rame, mm 425x480, impressa su carta vergata con marca d'acqua. Fascinosa carta dell'isola di Sicilia con Malta. L'autore, famoso incisore pittore e architetto francese, fu un celebre viaggiatore del Grand Tour. La mappa, stampata in seppia, proviene dal quarto volume di "Voyage pittoresque des isles de Sicile, de Malta et de Lipari tra il 1782 e il 1787", una delle più importanti opere del XVIII secolo riguardante il Grand Tour. I quattro volumi che costituiscono l'opera contengono oltre 200 tavole realizzate dall'autore nel corso del viaggio. La mappa fu copiata da quella di M. Seutter del 1744, da cui è preso anche il particolare di Malta, che mancava nella carta del 1782 pubblicata nel primo tomo dell'opera. Houel decise di disegnare una nuova carta della Sicilia per soddisfare le esigenze del suo pubblico e gli standard della produzione cartografica del tempo; la mappa, ricchissima di toponimi, presenta il reticolo geografico, evidenzia nell'orografia un imponente Etna, il cartiglio in alto a sinistra porta il titolo e in basso sempre a sinistra, il riquadro con l'isola di Malta con legenda e scala linearia. A destra in basso è riportata una legenda con la scala linearia. Ottimo esemplare marginoso. Rara.

The fascinating travel narrative of Constantin François Chasseboeuf, Comte de Volney (1757-1820), French aristocrat, philosopher, abolitionist, historian and politician, who set out for Egypt and Syria in 1782 and remained there for almost five years. His Voyage en Égypt et en Syrie was first published in Paris in 1787 and quickly translated into English. "One of the most exact and valuable works of the kind ever published. . . . Volney was a member of the States General and later the Constituent Assembly. He had a varied career during the Revolution, once narrowly escaping the guillotine" - Cox. Volney later became a friend of Thomas Jefferson, whom he visited at Monticello. Jefferson admired Volney's writings and at one time had planned to translate his Ruins of Empires into English, but presidential politics intervened.

      John Cary, London 1787 - Advertisement Leaf; Title page; Dedication Leaf; Contents [47 Double-page Maps] (Directions) pp 17 [1] Cary's 1787 English Atlas in a most desirable contemporary wallet-style binding intended for use by Stage Coach Drivers. The binding is soft sheep over thick card covers with rubbing to the hinges but a very good example of this style of binding. The first blank has the inscription of the sculptor Henry Westmacott recording the book as a gift from his sculptor father, Richard: 'Henry Westmacott A Gift of his Father's in 1801.' Westmacott's initials also appear on the unprinted recto of the Dedication Leaf. After the preliminaries there follow the 47 double page maps, outlined in colour and bound sideways onto stubs. The volume concludes with the seventeen pages of Directions. As befits a volume intended for practical use this is the version that does not have the county summaries or list of subscribers. An engraver himself, Cary is highly regarded for the quality of the workmanship and the precision of his cartography. An excellent copy.

Frontis lightly foxed; fine copy.. 12mo, period-style tan paper spine and marbled boards by Philip Dusel, untrimmed. Frontis. Eight-page list of subscribers. The first book by Charlotte Sanders, who went on to write children's fiction, notably The Little Family, published in 1797, and Edmund, a Tale for Children, in 1802, but little else about her appears to be known. This substantial collection of 70 poems is quite polished. Most are domestic in theme, but several show a passionate awareness of poverty and social injustice. There are also four poems written to or about author and philanthropist Jonas Hanway (1712-1786), apparently a family friend. And there is a poem on at least one other notable subject: "On Reading an Advertisement of a New Invented Method to Walk in the Air": "No more Balloons then, th' air-brain'd traveller's praise, / But new form'd projects, admiration raise, / Childhood hath playthings, hath not manhood too? . . ."

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) Versand D: 7,00 EUR Alte Literatur
