        A View in Annamooka, One of the Friendly Isle's

      London:: J. Webber,. 1788.. Very good condition. An UNPUBLISHED view by Webber. This is a monochrome aquatint, a different process used in others of Webber's views. This was not published in either the extremely rare lifetime edition of "Views in the South Seas" nor the more common but still rare 1809 (1820) edition of "Views in the South Seas"."A View in Annamooka, One of the Friendly Isle's" is not directly recorded in Joppien & Smith, but this view with the date of Feby. 1, 1788 is obliquely referred to in the reference notes to Joppien & Smith 3.44b as a lone copy with this publication date in the British Museum, Dept. of Prints and Drawings. It could possibly be recorded as Joppien & Smith 3.44c. "Drawn & Etch'd by J. Webber. Aquatinta by M.C. Prestel. London Pubd. Feby. 1, 1788 by J. Webber No. 312 Oxford Street. Vide Cook's Last Voy.

      S.l. [Paris], 1788.. 2 volumes in-8, plein veau marbre de l'epoque, dos lisses ornes de compartiments fleuronnes et cloisonnes, pieces de titre et de tomaison de veau havane et vert, roulette a froid sur les coupes, tranches rouges, 196, 54 p. et 196, 54 p., 7 tableaux depliants hors texte. Edition originale, rare, de cet ouvrage fondateur. "L'un des grands textes de Condorcet, ou il traduit en propositions, non seulement les nombreux calculs theoriques qu'il a effectues sur des questions politiques et sociales, mais aussi le resultat de ses quinze ans d'experience de secretaire de l'Academie des sciences pendant et apres sa participation au ministere Turgot" (B. Bru & P. Crepet, 'Arithmetique politique', INED, 1994, p. 665 sq.). "Theorie complete de la Cite democratique qu'il appelle de ses voeux, 'l'Essai sur les assemblees provinciales' est l'ouvrage politique le plus important de Condorcet" (R. & E. Badinter, 'Condorcet', p. 233-235). C'est egalement dans cet essai que Condorcet en appelle, pour la premiere fois, et de facon bien solitaire, au droit de vote des femmes dans une formulation qui demeurera celebre: "droit dont l'exercice serait si simple, & que les hommes tiennent, non de leur sexe, mais de leurs qualites d'etres raisonnables, qui leur est commune avec les femmes" (I, p. 30). Quelques rousseurs et brunissures, plus soutenues a certains cahiers. Bel exemplaire, bien relie a l'epoque..

        Aurelii prudentii Clementis V.C. Opera omnia nunc primum cum codd. Vaticanis collata praefatione, variantibus lectionibus, notis, ac rerum verborumque indice locupletissimo aucta et illustrata

      Parmae: Ex Regio typographeo 4to (31.5 cm, 12.5"). 2 vols. I: [12], 71, [1], 302, [2], [303]?-61, [3] pp. II: [4], 215, [1], 219?-84, [2] pp. (text complete despite pagination).. 1788 First edition of Prudentius from the Bodoni press. Prudentius (348 ?- ca. 410) was a Roman Christian poet born in Northern Spain, known for the asceticism he adopted late in life as well as for his lyric (Cathemerinon, Peristephanon), didactic (Apotheosis, Hamartigenia, Psychomachia), and polemical works (Contra Symmachum). The Psychomachia is particularly notable as one of the earliest Western examples of allegorical verse, exerting much influence on the subsequent medieval development of that genre. This is a typically handsome Bodoni production with wide margins, an elegant type, and a different engraved vignette on each title-page; Dibdin calls it ?"one of the most beautiful editions of a classical author I ever beheld.?" Recent half vellum and paper?-covered sides, vellum edges graced with gilt single fillet, spines with gilt-stamped leather title and volume labels and with gilt-stamped Greek key design; binding discolored and a little bubbled from proximity to fire. Edges untrimmed, signatures unopened; vol. I with surprisingly various old waterstaining, sometimes faint and sometimes not, in upper margins of first half and outer margins of last few leaves. Interior of both volumes otherwise clean, with no markings, save that the endpapers are smudged and those untrimmed edges, plus occasional small areas of margin contiguous, are darkly smokestained from that fire. => This is a book that has suffered, yet a production that is still as lovely as Dibdin said it was and a set well worth having.

However, his body was stolen from the grave, probably in the night after its burial, and taken to Cambridge to be anatomized. It is said that the professor of anatomy, Dr Charles Collignon, recognized the body and had it sent back to Paddington to be reburied. No marker was placed on this new burial place. In 1969, just prior to the indiscriminate disposal of the remains when the site was to be redeveloped, Kenneth Monkman recovered what is believed to be Sterne's skull (with the top sawn off, indicating purchase by medical students), and this was reburied in the graveyard of St Michael's Church, Coxwold, just across the road from Shandy Hall (see The Shandean, 10, 1998, 45-79).

It contains the discovery of the general equations of motion, the first epochal contribution to theoretical dynamics after Newton's <i>Principia</i>" (Evans). "Lagrange's masterpiece, the <i>Méchanique Analitique</i> (Paris, 1788), laid the foundations of modern mechanics, and occupies a place in the history of the subject second only to that of Newton's <i>Principia</i>." <br/> ❧Grolier/Horblit 61; Evans 10; Dibner 112; Sparrow 120; Norman 1257.<br/> "The year 1797 ... saw the appearance of the famous work of Lagrange, <i>Théorie des fonctions analytique</i>, ... This book developed with care and completeness the characteristic definition and method in terms of 'fonctions derives,' based upon Taylor's series, which Lagrange had proposed in 1772... Lagrange's <i>Théorie des fonctions</i> was only one, but by far the most important, of many attempts made about this time to furnish the calculus with a basis which would logically modify or supplant those given in terms of limits and infinitesimals."

Seltene deutsche Übersetzung dieses bekannten Klassikers der Chirurgie aus dem lateinischen übersetzt von Karl Gottlob Kühn (1754-1840) "der Arzneywissenschaft und außßerordentlichen öffentlichen Lehrer" und späteren bekannten Leipziger Professor der Medizin. - Heinrich Callisen (1740-1824), "berühmter Chirurg in Kopenhagen, Verfasser mehrerer systematischer-chirurgischer Werke, wurde 1740 zu Preetz in Holstein als Sohn eines Predigers geboren. 15 Jahre alt kam er um Chirurgie zu studiren nach Kopenhagen, wo er als Lehrjunge des Barbieramtes angebracht, in einigen Jahren Gesell wurde. Unter der Protection SIMON KRÜGER'S. des Genernldirectors der Chirurgie, wurde er dann in Anatomie und Chirurgie ausgebildet, und nachdem er die Probe am Amphitheatrum anatomicum absolvirt hatte, wurde er Assistenzchirurg am königl. Friedrichs - Hospital und habilitirte sich durch Vorlesungen am Amphitheater. Durch die Bestrebungen seiner Gönner gelang es ihm, ohne Immatriculation 1767 das Examen medicum rigorosum zu absolviren. Er unternahm dann eine mehrjährige Studienreise nach Paris und London, wo besonders W. HÖXTER sein Lehrer war. Nach Kopenhagen zurückgekehrt wurde er Primarchirurg in der Marine, 1772 als Dr. med. creirt, nach dem Falle BERGER'S 1773 Professor chirurgiae an der Universität und Mitglied des Collegium medicum, 1776 wirksames Mitglied einer Commission für die Förderung der Chirurgie. 1787 wollte der König von Preussen ihn an die Berliner Universität rufen, er lehnte aber die Aufforderung ab. 1791 wurde er Professor an der neu eröffneten chirurgischen Akademie, 1794 erhielt er das Generaldirectorat, das er bis an seinen Tod 1824 bekleidete.

        The Death of Captain Cook by the Natives of Owhyhee

      London: C.Cooke, 31 October, 1788. Engraving, 155 x 215 mm (plate size), early hand-colouring; slight foxing, but very good. Hand-coloured. An attractive and rather uncommon version of Webber's death of Captain Cook, newly engraved by William Grainger, with good early hand-colouring. Although in a reduced format, the engraving is neatly executed, and the use of simple colouring is very effective. Grainger is known to have collaborated with the publisher Cooke on many popular works in the late 1780s and 1790s.Known to Beddie from copies in the Mitchell and Dixson collections, it is also held in the National Library of Australia; nonetheless, this popular version of the infamous scene is quite rare.

        A Visit to the Child at Nurse

      Published by John Raphael Smith, London 1788 - Colour printed mezzotint with added hand colour. In good condition. A lovely colour printed impression of this charming print by Ward depicting one of George Morland's famous domestic scenes. Hiring a wet nurse was a common practice in both England and France during the 17th, 18th and early 19th centuries. They were primarily employed by aristocratic women, the theory being that breast feeding spoiled your figure. It had also been observed that breast feeding had a contraceptive effect, and in those days of high infant mortality, a noblewoman was expected to produce many children. Morland's scene demonstrates one of the dangers of these arrangements, as the baby clings to his nurse in fear of the embrace of his fashionable mother. The fashionable older sister is especially well depicted. George Morland was one of the most successful genre painters of his time, creating, during his industrious career, some of England's most cherished paintings. At an early age Morland displayed his artistic genius, he learned to paint at three and exhibited his first work at the Royal Academy at the mere age of ten. He was a prodigious painter, producing more than 4000 paintings during the entirety of his career, and sometimes painting two or three works in a day. His beautiful idealistic scenes were a favorite source of inspiration for contemporary engravers, and as many as 250 separate engravings were done of his paintings during his lifetime. His brother-in-law, William Ward, engraved a great number of his paintings reproducing in print his endearing paintings of English country life. Ward's engravings after Morland are some of the most beautiful prints of the period; they combine fine technical skill and inspired artistic imagination to create enduring images that speak of the taste and beauty of the age. Le Blanc IV, p.177, no.116.

        Sophoclis Tragoediae septem cum scholiis veteribus, versione Latina, et notis. Accedunt deperditorum dramatum fragmenta. Ex editione Rich. Franc. Phil. Brunck [Three Volumes]

      Argentorati [Strasbourg]: 1788. Three quarter maroon morocco over marbled boards ruled in gilt, four raised bands, compartments paneled in gilt, gilt titles, all edges marbled, marbled endpapers. A very good set, boards rubbed, spines lighlty sunned, boards on final volume with repaired paper splits. 8vo. One of only 250 copies printed. "...elle est assez recherchée," Brunet. Didbin wrote "The popularity of Brunck's edition was very great; and was exceeded by no work to which that celebrated name was attached. But the dearness of the quarto edition prevented many from purchasing it. Brunck, therefore, brought out an octavo edition, in three vols. 1786-8: containing the Scholia and indexes, fully as complete as the quarto. In the year 1789 [this edition date 1788] he published another octavo edition, in three vols., very handsomely printed, of which only 250 copies were struck off, at his own expense. In this latter edition, the Scholia of Triclinius, and other recent scholia, are omitted, and some fresh notes are added," (Rare & Valuable Editions of Greek and Latin Classics, 4th ed.,Vol. 2, p.415). Richard Francis Frederick Brunck (1729-1803), a celebrated Greek scholar and critic, had such admiration of the authors he edited that he conceived their writings to have been originally immaculate, and therefore attributed to the copyists whatever errors he discovered. Scarce. OCLC shows only five complete sets: BL, BN France, Nat. Lib. Denmark, Brown, Univ. Nebraska; also one in the Nat. Lib. of Greece. Brunet V: 449.

        OPERE TEATRALI DEL SIGNOR AVVOCATO CARLO GOLDONI VENEZIANO CON RAMI ALLUSIVI

      Venezia, dalle stampe di Antonio Zatta e figli, 1788-1795. In-16 gr. (mm. 185x130), 47 voll. di cui 3 di ?"Memorie?", cartoncino edit. (44 dorsi anticamente rifatti, i 3 delle ?"Memorie?" con picc. manc.). Ciascun vol. è di ca. 400 pp.; tutti i frontespizi sono arricchiti da suggestive vignette e l'opera è illustrata nel t. da ca. 400 bellissime vignette di P.A. Novelli, inc. in rame da Zuliani, Dell'Acqua, Alessandri, De Pian, Zatta, Bonato, Daniotto, Scattaglia. Manca il ritratto del Goldoni inciso da Pitteri, da disegno del Piazzetta- Questa pregevole edizione di opere teatrali edite ed inedite, è suddivisa in quattro classi: ?"Commedie in prosa?" (10 volumi) - ?"Commedie buffe in prosa?" (12 volumi) - ?"Commedie e tragedie in versi?" (12 volumi) - ?"Drammi giocosi?" (10 volumi). I 3 voll. che contengono le ?""Memorie" scritte da lui medesimo?", portano la data 1788 e contengono un ritratto dell?'A. inc. in rame da Daniotto. Precisiamo inoltre che nel vol. XXVII le ultime pagg., 65-80, relative agli atti IV e V della commedia ?"Le Morbidose?", non sono state editorialmente inserite. Nel ns. esemplare solo un vol. con alone al marg. bianco super., altrim. è tutto ben conservato. Cfr. Morazzoni, p. 234 e 143-44: "Contemporaneamente al "Parnaso Italiano" lo Zatta lancia le commedie di Carlo Goldoni e la nuova edizione può considerarsi frutto prelibato della sua probità editoriale. Goldoni non chiede 'decorazioni preziose' e lo Zatta ha trovato 'rami allusivi' che nella loro casalinga semplicità devono esser riusciti graditissimi anche all'autore che vedeva le sue ormai divulgatissime commedie commentate, nel modo più chiaro ed esatto, da minuscole vignette poste a capo di ogni atto. Lo Zatta è ricorso a Pietro Antonio Novelli per l'invenzione, tradotta con diligente cura da uno stuolo di incisori. La doviziosa serie dei piccoli rametti ci interessano infinitamente proprio come rievocazione della vita vissuta dalla modesta borghesia veneziana. Come interpretazione dello spirito goldoniano crediamo che l'edizione zattiana sia più vicina allo spirito di Goldoni di quella del Pasquali, le cui tavole elegantissime non starebbero male in un volume di Marivaud. Una particolare considerazione in questa edizione merita il primo volume delle "Memorie", per il gioviale ritratto del commediografo, che ci si presenta paternamente sorridente: questo, dopo i due famosi ritratti del Pitteri, è senza alcun dubbio uno dei più espressivi del Goldoni, e riteniamo pure ch'esso abbia anche il pregio della somiglianza, perchè certamente il Damiotto l'avrà inciso dopo l'approvazione del grande commediografo".

        An Historical Sketch of Prerogative and Influence in a Letter to a Friend

      G. G. J. and J. Robinson. LEATHER BOUND. B00LDTKF16 1788 first edition G. G. J. and J. Robinson (London), 3 7/8 x 6 1/4 inches tall red full leather bound, gilt-lettered black leather label to spine, marbled endpapers and page edges, [4], 137 pp. Newly rebound in crimson Morocco. Apart from moderate foxing to the half title and very mild occasional foxing within, a very good copy - clean, bright and unmarked - of a rare 1788 commentary on British royal prerogative, then one of the central features of Great Britain's governance, published at a time when the debate over ratification of the US Constitution was in full swing, with a great deal of focus on which powers were given to the federal government and which were reserved to the citizenry. For example, in his fiery June 1788 oration to Virginia's ratifying convention, Patrick Henry cited the concept of royal prerogative in Europe in railing against the 'absurdity' of not including a Bill of Rights with the Constitution. In Great Britain, a 'country which is said to be in such full possession of freedom,' Patrick said, 'all rights not expressly and unequivocally reserved to the people, are impliedly and incidentally relinquished to rulers, as necessarily inseparable from the delegated powers.' There were numerous favorable reviews of this work in 1788 publications - e.g., The Monthly Review (R. Griffiths: London), Vol. 79, p. 374; The Analytical Review (J. Johnson: London), Vol. 2, p. 81; and The Scotts Magazine (Murray and Cochrane: Edinburgh), Vol 50, p. 555 - yet the book is quite rare, with no copies listed worldwide by OCLC or Copac. Especially unusual for a publication of this period, even the English Short Title Catalog carries no listings, and American Book Prices Current records no appearance of the title at auction in the last quarter-century. ~YYY~ . Very Good. 1788. First Edition.

        Bibliotheca Hispana vetus, sive Hispani scriptores qui ab Octaviani Augusti aevo ad annum Christi MD. floruerunt. Bibliotheca Hispana nova sive Hispanorum scriptorum qui ab anno MD. ad MDCLXXXI.

      Madrid, Joaquín Ibarra, 1783-1788 - Fol. mayor (35,4 x 25,6 cm). 4 vols. Plena piel de época, hilo dorado en planos, lomos con nervios, hierros dorados en los entrenervios y doble tejuelo &#150;rojo y verde&#150;, algo dañada en los cantos. Precioso ejemplar de la segunda edición, más apreciada que la primera. Nicolás Antonio está considerado el iniciador de la bibliografía española moderna. Sus obras capitales como bibliógrafo fueron la Bibliotheca hispana nova, publicada en 1672 con el título Bibliotheca hispana sive hispanorum, y la Bibliotheca hispana vetus (póstuma, impresa en 1696). La Bibliotheca hispana consta de dos partes; la segunda, Bibliotheca hispana nova, apareció en Roma en 1672 en dos volúmenes, abarcando todos los autores españoles desde 1500 a 1672, y fue reeditada en Madrid entre 1783 y 1788, con cambios, por el ilustrado Francisco Pérez Bayer a iniciativa del director de la Biblioteca Real de Madrid, Juan de Santander, que incorporó al primer texto impreso numerosas adiciones y correcciones que el autor le hizo en los últimos años de su vida; está escrita en latín y dispuesta en forma de diccionario, así como acompañada de varios índices que facilitan su manejo. La edición de Joaquín Ibarra de la Bibliotheca puede tenerse como uno de los mejores impresos españoles del siglo XVIII, no solo por sus discretas ilustraciones sino por el cuidado tipográfico. El diseño, grabado y fundición de los tipos se realizó en el obrador de la Biblioteca Real con letrerías creadas expresamente para sus ediciones, que comprenden caracteres arábigos, hebreos, griegos y latinos realizados por Gerónimo Antonio Gil.
