        Dissertation sur cette question : est-il des moyens de rendre les Juifs plus heureux et plus utiles en France ? Ouvrage couronne par la Societe Royale des Sciences et des Arts de Metz.

      Paris, Knapen fils, Madame la Veuve Delaguette et fils, 1788.. In-8, broche, couverture papier bleu d'origine, (4), 105 p., (3) p. d'approbation, (4) p. de catalogue editeur. Rare edition originale et unique de ce memoire compose en reponse au concours organise par la Societe royale des Sciences et des Arts de Metz. La societe messine accorda un prix a trois des dix dissertations qui furent presentees: celle de l'abbe Gregoire ('Essai sur la regeneration physique, morale et politique des Juifs'), celle de Zalkind Hourwitz ('Apologie des Juifs') et cet essai de l'avocat protestant nanceien Claude-Antoine Thiery. Compose apres consultation avec Berr Isaac Beer, le dirigeant de la communaute juive alsacienne, Thiery y fait entendre un son de voix differente. "Preferant voir les Juifs rester Juifs plutot que de devenir ni Juifs ni chretiens, il n'etait pas hostile au maintien provisoire de l'autonomie et souhaitait employer envers les Juifs 'la confiance qui invite, plutot que l'autorite qui commande'. Sans doute, cela etait du au fait que le laic Thiery ne partageait pas la vision paulinienne d'une conversion finale des Juifs, qui guidait l'action de Gregoire" (cf. P. Girard, 'Le concours de Metz' in : 'Les Juifs de France de 1789 a 1860', P., 1976, p. 36-39). L'auteur se defend, dans une note imprimee au verso du titre, d'avoir imite le livre de Mirabeau sur la Reforme des Juifs : son premier memoire envoye sur ce sujet a l'academie de Metz etait en effet anterieur a la parution du livre de Mirabeau. L'exemplaire est bien complet, a la fin, des 4 pages de catalogue "pour les livres nouveaux qui se trouvent a Paris chez Knapen fils et la veuve Delaguette". (Ayoun,' Les Juifs de France', n°217. Szajkowski, 'Franco-Judaica', 1646). Quelques rousseurs et brunissures. Bon exemplaire, entierement non rogne, tel que paru..

In 1775, 76 men in Newport were asked to sign a declaration of loyalty to the American colonies that included the phrase, ?upon the true faith of a Christian.? Hays publicly objected to the phrase and refused to sign, instead offering a letter affirming his belief that the Revolution was a just cause. When, after much wrangling, the Christian portion of the oath was omitted, Hays signed. In 1776, Hays and his family moved to Boston. He opened a shipping office and was am

        Voyage Philosophique au Japon, ou Conférences Anglo-Franco-Bataves

      Dans les Jardins de M. l'Ebahi, "Pressure" (Paris?) 1788 - Octavo, half-title, woodcut vignette of a ship setting sail at start of text; a good copy in neat modern quarter calf. A visit to Japan. First edition: a very scarce anonymous imaginary voyage and a satirical commentary on French politics and society which has decadent Europeans (led by Monsieur l'Ebahi "Mister Flabbergasted") discussing the government and people of Japan. The preface makes it clear that this is not to be regarded as excessively serious. Having studied works as diverse as Xerxes, Leucippe, the ancient priests of Egypt and the Gymnosophists of India, the author decides that the greatest philosopher is Democritus, and that the only useful skill to be acquired is to be unfailingly amused by the foibles of mankind. This position is confirmed in his conference with the Englishman "Thincker" and the Dutchman from Batavia "Wurtzheim." Throughout the mores of Japan and Asia are used as a thin veil through which to satirise French society just before the Revolution. This is a rather scarce work indeed, with just a handful of copies recorded in Britain and Europe. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Susanna und die beiden Alten.

      . Radierung und Kupferstich, nach Guido Reni, auf Bütten mit Wasserzeichen: bekrönter Wappenschild mit eingeschriebener Lilie (ähnlich Heawood 1788). 32,1:38,1 cm. Literatur: Smith, Dutuit und Hollstein 31, V. Kräftiger, kontrastreicher Abdruck mit der Verlegeradresse des F. de Wit und vollem Rand rundum. Zwei winzige Wurmgänge innerhalb der Darstellung, im Unterrand mehrere kleine Einrisse sowie zwei winzige Fehlstellen. Die Mittelfalte ist sorgfältig geglättet, Papier leicht vergilbt.. Der virtuos in Mischtechnik ausgeführte Stich läßt sich aufgrund des am 11. Februar 1679 erstellten Inventars des Kunsthändlers Clemens de Jonghe, Amsterdam, grob einordnen. Das Blatt wurde jedoch nicht nach dem heute in der National Gallery in London aufbewahrten Gemälde des Guido Reni geätzt und gestochen, wie die erheblichen Abweichungen zwischen Gemälde und der vorliegenden Graphik zeigen, sondern nach einer bislang nicht bekannten Gemäldefassung des Bologneser Meister.

        A View of the Pass of Sicri Gully

      J. Grives, London 1788 - Aquatint, printed in two or more colours, coloured by hand to resemble watercolour, by Hodges. A fine print from the very rare hand-coloured issue of Hodges' "Select Views in India", the pioneering work on the architectural and picturesque wonders of India. This fine image resulted from Hodges' six year stay in India under the patronage of Warren Hastings and was published in three separate forms: uncoloured, uncoloured proof or hand-coloured to resemble the original drawing, as here. The image was were printed lightly in a single operation using two (sepia and blue) or more colours applied to a single plate, these prints were then coloured by hand (probably by Hodges himself) with great freedom but with careful attention being paid to achieving a depth of colour and shading only possible through the repeated over-painting of contrasting pigments. The print therefore retains much of the idiosyncratic vibrancy of the original watercolour. Born in London the son of a smith, William Hodges was employed as an errand-boy in Shipley's drawing school, where in his spare time he managed to learn drawing. The landscape painter Richard Wilson (1714-1782) noticed him and took him on as his assistant and pupil, and by 1766 Hodges was exhibiting in his own right. In 1772, through the interest of Lord Palmerston (1739-1802) a member of the board of Admiralty, he was appointed as draughtsman to Captain James Cook's second expedition to the South Seas. He returned in 1775 and was employed by the Admiralty in working up his drawings of the expedition and in supervising the engraving of the plates for Cook's published account of the expedition. He exhibited a number of pictures inspired by the voyage at the Royal Academy in London in 1776 and 1777. Life in London must have seemed quite restrained after his South Sea Island experiences, and in 1778 he left for India, where he worked under the patronage of the Governor-General Warren Hastings (1732-1818) and remained in India for about six years, experiencing at first hand one of the most important periods in the establishment of British supremacy in India. On his return to England in 1784 he set about the publication of 'Select Views in India.' Its appearance would have caused a sensation , as nothing of the scenery of India on this scale had been seen before (Humboldt cited the Hodges views as one of the inducements which led him to travel). Hodges thereafter continued to paint and to exhibit at the Royal Academy, but did not manage to achieve the heights that he reached with his Indian views. Cf. Abbey Travel II, 416; cf. Brunet III, 242; cf. Lowndes II, p.1079; cf. Tooley 264. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

Als Sohn eines schwäbischen Dorftischlers absolvierte Gauermann zunächst eine Lehre als Steinhauer in Hohenheim bei Stuttgart. 1788 konnte er jedoch das Studium an der Stuttgarter Zeichenakademie beginnen und wurde zum Zeichner und Kupferstecher ausgebildet. Anschließend arbeitete er als Verlagsgehilfe bei einem Heilbronner Kunsthändler. In Wien konnte er mit Unterstützung seines Heilbronner Arbeitgebers zwei Monate die dortige Akademie besuchen, mußte die Ausbildung jedoch aufgrund dessen Todes abbrechen. Zum Broterwerb arbeitete er dann als Kupferstecher und privater Zeichenlehrer. 1802 bereiste er erstmals, als Gehilfe des Wiener Malers M. von Molitor (1759-1812) die Alpen. Hier erfolgte der Übergang von der klassizistisch orientierten zur auf der Naturbeobachtung basierenden realistischen Kunstauffassung. 1803 ließ er sich in Miesenbach nieder und gestaltete nun vorwiegend Alpenlandschaften. 1811 wurde er von Erzherzog Johann zum Kammermaler ernannt und erlangte die Mitgliedschaft der Wiener Akademie.

        On the Secular Variation of the Moon&#39;s Mean Motion" extracted from Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society, Vol. 143, Part III, 1853, pp. 397-406

      FIRST EDITION of an important and consequential paper in which John Couch Adams announces new mathematical methods in dealing with the pertubations of the Moon, and in so doing corrects Laplace&#39;s famed 1788 memoir. Laplace studied the Moon&#39;s mean rate of motion relative to the stars; his work provided an explanation in terms of changes in the eccentricity of the Earth&#39;s orbit considering only the radial gravitational forces on the Moon from the Sun and Earth and had obtained close agreement with historical observational records. "Adams showed that Laplace&#39;s solution was incorrect. In particular, Laplace had ignored a variation in solar eccentricity that introduces into the differential equations for the moon&#39;s motion a series of additional terms" (DSB I, p. 54b). In other works, Adams paper showed that while tangential terms vanish in the first-order theory of Laplace, they became substantial when quadratic terms are admitted. Small terms integrated in time come to have large effects and Adams concluded that Plana had overestimated the secular acceleration by approximately 1.66 inches per century" (Wikipedia). Adams "paper caused a sharp scientific controversy, marked by angry chauvinism on the part of several French astronomers. Their attack stimulated a number of independent investigations of the subject, all of which confirmed Adams&#39; results. The matter was definitely settles in his favor by 1861, but not without hard feelings" (DSB 54b). CONDITION & DETAILS: London: Richard Tyalor and William Francis. Quarto. (11 x 8.5 inches; 275 x 213mm). pp. 397-406. No wrappers as extracted from Philosophical Transactions. Clean and bright; near fine condition.

Jones a product of Harrow and University College, had established his reputation as an orientalist by his Grammar of the Persian Language (1771) and Poeseos Asiaticae Commentariorum Libri VI (1774)... In 1783 he was knighted and appointed a judge of the high court in Calcutta, the administrative seat of the East India Company, an office which he held until his death. Here Jones indulged his oriental studies, founded the Asiatic Society of Bengal (1784), edited its Journal of Asiatic Researches, translated Indian classics into English... In 1786 Jones made his epoch-making discovery of the relationship between the Sanskrit, Gothic, Greek and Latin languages-to which he later, erroneously, thought he could add Egyptian. His clear understanding of the basic principles of scientific linguistics provided the foundation on which Rask, Bopp, and Grimm built the imposing structure of comparative Indo-European studiesî (PMM).Printing and the Mind of Man 235.HBS 65336.$7,500

        Küstenlandschaft bei Menton an der Cote d'Azur.

      . Bleistift, weiß gehöht und wenig blau laviert, auf bräunlichem Velin, links unten bezeichnet "Hafen von Mentone". 11:18,4 cm. Auf Untersatz montiert. Mit leichtem Lichtrand links und rechts.. Elise Crola, Tochter eines Bankiers, wuchs in einem künstlerisch-musisch orientierten Elternhaus auf. Hier verkehrten neben Wissenschaftlern auch Maler und Bildhauer wie W. von Schadow (1788-1862), Chr.D. Rauch (1777-1857), C.J. Begas (1794-1854), C.W. Wach (1787-1845) und ihr Vetter E.J.F. Bendemann (1811-1889), der spätere Direktor der Dresdner Gemäldegalerie. Ihre Eltern förderten die künstlerische Begabung ihrer Tochter - auch Schadow, der sie in jungen Jahre porträtiert hatte ("Die Poesie"), empfahl ihren Eltern, das Talent ihrer Tochter zu fördern. So erhielt sie früh Zeichenunterricht durch den Porträt- und Miniaturmaler J.F. Zimmermann (tätig 1796-1838). Im Alter von 18 Jahren heiratete sie den vierzehn Jahre älteren Baron K.H.L. von Weiher; die kinderlose Ehe wurde 1836 auf Drängen ihrer Familie und gegen ihren Willen geschieden. Kurz darauf lernte sie in Berlin den Maler Georg Heinrich Crola (1804-1879) kennen, sie trafen sich wieder in Ilsenburg, wo sie sich bevorzugt aufhielt, und heirateten 1840. Gemeinsam entschied man, in Ilsenburg sesshaft zu werden und erwarb schließlich 1847 ein großes Haus. Obwohl sie fünf Kinder gebar, unternahm sie gemeinsam mit ihrem Mann nicht nur zahlreiche Fahrten nach Berlin, Dresden und auf die Insel Rügen, sondern auch nach Dänemark, Schweden und in die Alpen. Zudem führten sie in Ilsenburg ein reges gesellschaftliches Leben. Zu ihren Künstlerfreunden zählten u.a. P. von Cornelius (1783-1867), L. Richter (1803-1884) und W. von Kügelgen (1802-1867). Elise zeigte zudem ein ausgeprägtes soziales Engagement und wurde zur Wohltäterin der Alten und Armen. Nicht näher zu spezifizierende Beschwerden zwangen sie jedoch zu Reisen, z.B. eine vermutlich anderthalbjährigere Reise gemeinsam mit ihrem Mann 1854 in die Schweiz. Auch zwei längere Aufenthalte in Italien zwecks Erholung sind zu belegen. Ihr künstlerisches Schaffen, sie arbeitete meist mit dem Bleistift, selten in Aquarell, wird von figürlichen Themen, Porträts, Tierdarstellungen, Veduten und Landschaften bestimmt. Daneben betätigte sie sich bildhauerisch (Porträts). Später bemalte sie auch Porzellane und Gebrauchsgegenstände. Im Hüttenmuseum Ilsenburg wurde Ende der 1990er Jahre eine Crola-Stube eingerichtet.

      xii, 512 pp. Large 4to, cont. mottled calf (several discrete repairs, minor rubbing & wear), flat spine gilt, red morocco lettering piece on spine. Paris: la Veuve Desaint, 1788. First edition of the work which laid the foundations of modern mechanics. This book contains the discovery of the general equations of motions of any system of bodies. "Lagrange proposed to reduce the theory of mechanics and the art of solving problems in that field to general formulas, the mere development of which would yield all the equations necessary for the solution of every problem... "The [book] united and presented from a single point of view the various principles of mechanics, demonstrated their connection and mutual dependence, and made it possible to judge their validity and scope. It is divided into two parts, statics and dynamics, each of which treats solid bodies and fluids separately. There are no diagrams. The methods presented require only analytic operations subordinated to a regular and uniform development. Each of the four sections begins with a historical account which is a model of the kind."-D.S.B., VII, pp. 569-70. A very good and large copy.

        Voyage Philosophique au Japon, ou Conférences Anglo-Franco-Bataves

      Pressure" (Paris?): Dans les Jardins de M. l&#39;Ebahi, 1788. Octavo, half-title, woodcut vignette of a ship setting sail at start of text; a good copy in neat modern quarter calf. A visit to Japan. First edition: a very scarce anonymous imaginary voyage and a satirical commentary on French politics and society which has decadent Europeans (led by Monsieur l&#39;Ebahi "Mister Flabbergasted") discussing the government and people of Japan. The preface makes it clear that this is not to be regarded as excessively serious. Having studied works as diverse as Xerxes, Leucippe, the ancient priests of Egypt and the Gymnosophists of India, the author decides that the greatest philosopher is Democritus, and that the only useful skill to be acquired is to be unfailingly amused by the foibles of mankind. This position is confirmed in his conference with the Englishman "Thincker" and the Dutchman from Batavia "Wurtzheim." Throughout the mores of Japan and Asia are used as a thin veil through which to satirise French society just before the Revolution. This is a rather scarce work indeed, with just a handful of copies recorded in Britain and Europe.

        Blick auf den Watzmann am Königssee mit einer großen Eiche rechts, im Vordergrund rechts ein lagerndes Bauernpaar.

      . Bleistift und weiße Kreide, auf grauem Papier, rechts unten bezeichnet "am Königsee b. Berchtesgaden". 26,3:26,3 cm.. Elise Crola, Tochter eines Bankiers, wuchs in einem künstlerisch-musisch orientierten Elternhaus auf. Hier verkehrten neben Wissenschaftlern auch Maler und Bildhauer wie W. von Schadow (1788-1862), Chr.D. Rauch (1777-1857), C.J. Begas (1794-1854), C.W. Wach (1787-1845) und ihr Vetter E.J.F. Bendemann (1811-1889), der spätere Direktor der Dresdner Gemäldegalerie. Ihre Eltern förderten die künstlerische Begabung ihrer Tochter - auch Schadow, der sie in jungen Jahre porträtiert hatte ("Die Poesie"), empfahl ihren Eltern, das Talent ihrer Tochter zu fördern. So erhielt sie früh Zeichenunterricht durch den Porträt- und Miniaturmaler J.F. Zimmermann (tätig 1796-1838). Im Alter von 18 Jahren heiratete sie den vierzehn Jahre älteren Baron K.H.L. von Weiher; die kinderlose Ehe wurde 1836 auf Drängen ihrer Familie und gegen ihren Willen geschieden. Kurz darauf lernte sie in Berlin den Maler Georg Heinrich Crola (1804-1879) kennen, sie trafen sich wieder in Ilsenburg, wo sie sich bevorzugt aufhielt, und heirateten 1840. Gemeinsam entschied man, in Ilsenburg sesshaft zu werden und erwarb schließlich 1847 ein großes Haus. Obwohl sie fünf Kinder gebar, unternahm sie gemeinsam mit ihrem Mann nicht nur zahlreiche Fahrten nach Berlin, Dresden und auf die Insel Rügen, sondern auch nach Dänemark, Schweden und in die Alpen. Zudem führten sie in Ilsenburg ein reges gesellschaftliches Leben. Zu ihren Künstlerfreunden zählten u.a. P. von Cornelius (1783-1867), L. Richter (1803-1884) und W. von Kügelgen (1802-1867). Elise zeigte zudem ein ausgeprägtes soziales Engagement und wurde zur Wohltäterin der Alten und Armen. Nicht näher zu spezifizierende Beschwerden zwangen sie jedoch zu Reisen, z.B. eine vermutlich anderthalbjährigere Reise gemeinsam mit ihrem Mann 1854 in die Schweiz. Auch zwei längere Aufenthalte in Italien zwecks Erholung sind zu belegen. Ihr künstlerisches Schaffen, sie arbeitete meist mit dem Bleistift, selten in Aquarell, wird von figürlichen Themen, Porträts, Tierdarstellungen, Veduten und Landschaften bestimmt. Daneben betätigte sie sich bildhauerisch (Porträts). Später bemalte sie auch Porzellane und Gebrauchsgegenstände. Im Hüttenmuseum Ilsenburg wurde Ende der 1990er Jahre eine Crola-Stube eingerichtet.

        The Life of Captain James Cook

      London: G. Nicol, 1788. Quarto, with engraved frontispiece portrait of Cook; light spotting to portrait, light offsetting of portrait onto title; very well bound to style in calf-backed marbled boards, spine gilt with red and green morocco lettering-pieces, top edge gilt. The great life of Cook. An attractive copy of the first edition of the great life of Captain Cook. Using Admiralty sources as well as documents belonging to Joseph Banks, Kippis gives a rounded account of Cook&#39;s public life: his early career on the St. Lawrence River, his surveying, and particularly his three Pacific voyages, are discussed at length. The 22-page account of Cook&#39;s death is sourced directly from Samwell, whose account (today exceptionally rare) had appeared in print two years earlier, with Kipper&#39;s help: &#39;I procured its publication, that, if any objections should be made to it, I might be able to notice them in my own work. As the narrative hath continued for more than two years unimpeached and uncontradicted, I esteem myself fully authorised to insert it in this place, as containing the most complete and authentic account of the melancholy catastrophe, which, at Owhyee, befell our illustrious navigator and Commander …&#39;. As Holmes notes, this text is &#39;the frankest and most reliable of all contemporary accounts&#39;.

        [WF 83] Der Soldat [song for voice and piano; text by Adelbert von Chamisso]. Autograph musical manuscript, unsigned and undated, but December 1899. 4 pp. Together with fragments of two additional compositions

      Folio, 356 x 270 mm. 2 leaves, notated on a bifolium of 16-staff "B & H Nr. 3. C" music paper. Unpaginated. & & Recto and verso of first leaf: "Der Soldat. Chamisso." Song for alto voice and piano, with text underlay in German cursive. Parts marked in German ("Alt"; "Klav[ier]). Time signature: C; key signature: 4 flats, for F minor (albeit with final chord on the dominant). Sixty-five measures (10 systems). A draft of the complete song. 2 pp. Notated in pencil, with three barlines doubled in ink.& & Recto of second leaf: untitled fragment of fugue "Kyrie eleison" for mixed choir (SATB), probably a cappella. Time signature: C; key signature: 2 flats, for G minor. Eighteen measures (4 systems, increasingly sketchy, incomplete). Notated in pencil.& & Verso of second leaf: untitled fragment of homophonic chorus (SATB) a cappella. Time signature: C; key signature: 5 flats, for D-flat major. Eight completed measures (2 systems), with clefs for 2 more systems indicated (staves blank). Text: "Erinnerung" (Memory) by Joseph von Eichendorff (1788-1857); incipit: "Lindes Rauschen in den Wipfeln..." (Soft rustle in the tree tops...). Incomplete. Notated in pencil, with text underlay in a different (more mature) hand.& & Slightly soiled and creased; some staining to edges; occasional foxing; two small tears to blank edges; lower outer corners slightly creased and chipped; central fold with very small split to both head and tail. . Der Soldat is unpublished, but has been recorded (see the article on Furtwängler in German Wikipedia). A fair copy, in ink and bearing a dedication "To my mother on Christmas 1899," is held at the Zurich Central Library, shelfmark Nachl. W. Furtwängler 2a, 7 (see the Nachlassverzeichnis Wilhelm Furtwängler, accessible as a PDF on the library&#39;s website, p. 46). & & The poem "Der Soldat" (1833) is by Adelbert von Chamisso (1781-1838), after a Danish original (1830) by Hans Christian Andersen (1805-75). Furtwängler set it in full, albeit with minor changes. Although the vocal staff of "Der Soldat" is designated "alto," its range extends from a to a&#39;&#39;; "mezzo-soprano" would be a more fitting designation. The poem was also set by others, most famously Robert Schumann (no. 3 of his Five Songs for Voice and Piano, op. 40, 1840). & & The choral fragments do not belong to any documented works by Furtwängler. The Kyrie may have been a contrapuntal assignment from Anton Beer-Walbrunn, with whom Furtwängler studied from 1899.
