        THE FEDERALIST: A COLLECTION OF ESSAYS WRITTEN IN FAVOR OF THE NEW CONSTITUTION, AS AGREED UPON BY THE FEDERAL CONVENTION, SEPTEMBER 17, 1787

      New York: Printed and sold by John and Andrew M'Lean, 1788.. Two volumes bound in one. vi,227; vi,384pp. 12mo. Contemporary sheep, spine with plain gilt rules. Expertly rebacked, with original spine laid down, boards somewhat rubbed. Light foxing and toning. Pencil notes on free endpapers. Small tear in pp.49/50 with no loss. Overall very good, with the bookplate of F. Olcott. In a blue half morocco and cloth clamshell box with chemise. The rare first edition of the most important work of American political thought ever written and, according to Thomas Jefferson, "the best commentary on the principles of government." The first edition of THE FEDERALIST comprises the first collected printing of the eighty-five seminal essays written in defense of the newly-drafted Constitution. The essays were first issued individually by Alexander Hamilton, James Madison, and John Jay in New York newspapers under the pseudonym Publius to garner support for the ratification of the Constitution. The first thirty-six numbers of THE FEDERALIST were here published in book form in March 1788, with the remaining forty-nine, together with the text of the Constitution, in May of that year. Upon its publication, George Washington noted to Alexander Hamilton that the work "will merit the Notice of Posterity; because in it are candidly and ably discussed the principles of freedom and the topics of government, which will always be interesting to mankind" (George Washington, letter to Hamilton, August 28, 1788). The genesis of this "classic exposition of the principles of republican government" (Bernstein) is to be found in the "great national discussion" which took place about the ratification of the Constitution, and the necessity of answering the salvos in print from the Anti-Federalists and other opponents of a strong federal government. The original plan was that James Madison and John Jay were to help Hamilton write a series of essays explaining the merits of their system, whilst also rebutting the arguments of its detractors. "Hamilton wrote the first piece in October 1787 on a sloop returning from Albany...He finished many pieces while the printer waited in a hall for the completed copy" - Brookhiser. In the end, well over half of the eighty-five essays were written by Hamilton alone. Despite the intense time pressures under which the series was written "what began as a propaganda tract, aimed only at winning the election for delegates to New York's state ratifying convention, evolved into the classic commentary upon the American Federal system" - McDonald. THE FEDERALIST is without question the most important commentary on the Constitution, the most significant American contribution to political theory and among the most important of all American books.

        La Turchia Europea divisa nelle sue provincie

      "Carta tratta dalla rara raccolta di carte geografiche denominata Atlante Geografico, prima stesura delle opera dell?abate Bartolomeo Borghi, pubblicata in Siena dal Pazzini Carli. Molte delle carte, datate tra il 1788 ed il 1800, sono incise da Agostino Costa e poi successivamente inserite nell?opera Atlante generale dell'ab. Bartolommeo Borghi, pubblicato a Firenze nel 1819.Bartolomeo Borghi, che Vermiglioli (Biografia degli scrittori perugini, 1829) definisce ""uno dei migliori geografi dell'Europa"", nacque nel 1750 a Monte del Lago, piccola frazione del comune di Magione, in provincia di Perugia, sulle rive del Trasimeno. Ordinato sacerdote nel 1774, trascorse i primi anni del suo mandato nel paese natale, poi a Magione e quindi a Sorbello (Cortona).Appassionato studioso di geografia, applicò dapprima le sue conoscenze all'analisi delle terre a lui più familiari: nel 1770 scrisse Descrizione geografica, fisica e naturale del Lago Trasimeno (che sarà tuttavia data alle stampe per la prima volta solo nel 1821), e nel 1791 pubblicò negli atti dell'Accademia etrusca di Cortona una Dissertazione sopra l'antica geografia dell'Etruria, Umbria e Piceno, arricchendo entrambe le opere di una carta delle regioni descritte. Intanto la sua fama di cartografo, oltre che di geografo, cresceva, tanto da fargli ottenere le nomine a membro delle Accademie Cortonese e Reale di Firenze, e procurargli l'incarico, da parte di Pietro Leopoldo, di delineare la carta del catasto pubblico di Cortona e del contado di Castiglione.Nello stesso tempo gli orizzonti geografici della sua attività si allargavano sensibilmente, e se nell'Atlante Novissimo, illustrato ed accresciuto sulle osservazioni, e scoperte fatte dai più celebri e più recenti cartografi di Antonio Zatta (Venezia 1779-1785) il suo contributo fu ancora legato all'area toscana, nell'Atlante geografico che si pubblicò a Siena da Pazzini Carli tra il 1798 ed il 1800 il Borghi tracciò la maggior parte delle carte e spaziò dalle province del Sud-Est dell'Inghilterra, al Regno di Danimarca, alla Romania.Una sorta di prova generale, quest'ultima, della sua opera più importante, quell'Atlante generale dell'ab. Bartolommeo Borghi, pubblicato a Firenze nel 1819. L'Atlante, corredato da brevi descrizioni storiche, politiche, civili e naturali che introducono le carte relative ai territori afferenti a ciascun Impero o Regno illustrato, rispecchia il nuovo assetto geo-politico attuato dal Congresso di Vienna." "Map taken form the very rare Atlante Geografico, the first draft of the abbot Bartolomeo Borghi, published in Siena by Pazzini Carli. Many of the mapss, dated between 1788 and 1800, are engraved by Agostino Costa and then later incorporated in the work of AB Atlante Generale di Bartolomeo Borghi, published in Florence in 1819.Bartolomeo Borghi, who Vermiglioli (Biography of writers Perugini, 1829) calls ""one of the best geographers of Europe"", was born in 1750 in Monte del Lago, a small fraction of the town of Mansfield, in the province of Perugia, on the shores of Lake Trasimeno. Ordained in 1774, spent the first years of his term in his hometown, then to Mansfield and then Sorbello (Cortona).A passionate student of geography, first applied his knowledge to the analysis of land more familiar to him: he wrote in 1770 Description geographical, physical and natural Lake Trasimeno (which will however be given to the press for the first time only in 1821), and 1791 published in the Proceedings of Etruscan Cortona a dissertation on the geography of ancient Etruria, Umbria and Piceno, enriching both the works of a map of the regions described. Meanwhile, his fame as a cartographer, as well as a geographer, was growing, so that he get the nomination as a member of the Royal Academies of Florence and Cortona, and give him the job, by Pietro Leopoldo, to outline the paper's public land Cortona and the county of Castiglione.At the same time the geographical horizons of its activities widened considerably, and if in the Atlas Novissimo, illustrated and amplified the observations and discoveries made by the most recent and most famous cartographer Antonio Zatta (Venice 1779-1785) his contribution was still related area of Tuscany, in the Atlas geographic monthly published in Siena by Pazzini Carli between 1798 and 1800 the villages drew most of the cards and spaced from the provinces of South-East of England, the Kingdom of Denmark, Romania.A sort of dress rehearsal, the latter, his most important work, quell'Atlante General of AB. Bartolomeo Borghi, published in Florence in 1819. The Atlas, accompanied by brief descriptions of historical, political, civil and natural to introduce the papers relating to the territories belonging to each United Empire or illustrated, reflects the new geo-political structure implemented by the Congress of Vienna."

        L'America secondo le ultime osservazioni divisa ne' suoi stati principali

      Carta tratta dal "Nuovo Atlante Geografico Universale delineato sulle ultime osservazioni", edito a Roma dal 1792 fino al 1801, opera che la Calcografia Camerale commissionò al Cassini al fine di sostituire l?ormai obsoleto "Mercurio Geografico". Giovanni Maria Cassini, Chierico Regolare Somasco fu geografo e cartografo, ma anche intagliatore di architetture e prospettive - uno dei migliori discepoli di Giovanni Battista Piranesi - Cassini fu uno degli ultimi sferografi italiani del Settecento ed i suoi globi ebbero una notevole diffusione, come pure questo "Nuovo Atlante Geografico". Incisione in rame, finemente colorata nei contorni, in ottimo stato di conservazione. A scarce map of the Americas featuring the discoveries of Captain Cook. In North America a possible Northwest Passage is labeled B. di Beering and Alaska makes a very early appearance Cook's three voyages are traced in the Pacific, where are present both islands of New Zealand. An uncommon map, published in the 'Nuovo Atlante Geografico Universale', with a decorative title cartouche, by Giovanni Maria Cassini, a Somasco monk. He was geographer and cartographer but he was also good at engraving architectural items and perspectives ? he was one of the best disciples Giovanni Battista Piranesi had. Moreover, Cassini was one of the last artists to engrave spheres in the XVIII century and his globes were quite famous and widespread, and realized the most important Italian Atlas of the XVIII century; his maps always bear a cartouche, extremely rich in colours and details. Copperplate with fine later hand colour, in very good condition. Roma Rome 470 345

        (Calabria)

      Grande carta geografica della Calabria, in 6 fogli, tratta dal famoso "Atlante Geografico del Regno di Napoli" grandioso lavoro in 32 fogli realizzato dal Rizzi Zannoni in un trentennio e completato nel 1812, due anni prima della sua morte. Incisa da Giuseppe Guerra nel 1794. Rizzi Zannoni è considerato come il più importante cartografo italiano dai tempi di Giovanni Antonio Magini. Attivo in Francia , a Padova e soprattutto a Napoli (1781/1814), dove, nel periodo borbonico, poté fregiarsi anche del titolo di "geografo del Re". Con la venuta dei francesi, Rizzi Zannoni continuò ad attendere alla realizzazione delle carte del Regno. Nel 1807, fu posto a capo del Deposito topografico, istituito da Giuseppe Bonaparte; nel 1812, sotto il regno di Gioacchino Murat, riuscì a stampare l'ultimo dei 31 fogli dell'atlante geografico, la cui pubblicazione era iniziata nel 1788. Le opere realizzate a Napoli, in oltre trenta anni di attività, lo consacrarono come il maggiore cartografo italiano dell'età moderna ed uno dei più accreditati in Europa. Incisione in rame, carta leggermente brunita e leggera gora d'acqua nel margine inferiore, piccoli fori di tarlo, per il resto in ottimo stato di conservazione. Napoli Naples 790 560

        Zoologia Danica seu Animalium Daniae et Norvegiae rariorum ac minus notorum descriptiones et historia.

      Hauniae, N. Mölleri/ N. Christensen, 1788-1806. 4 volumes bound in two. Folio (387 x 240mm). pp. v, (1), 52; (4), 56; (4), 71; (6), 46, with engraved title vignettes and 160 beautifully handcoloured engraved plates. Contemporary half calf, gilt lettered spines in 6 compartments, marbled sides, upper edges gilt. A fine copy, of a very rare work, describing the marine fauna of Denmark and Norway. This beautifully produced work is one of the rarest zoological publications. Müller complains that no more than 25 copies had been sold in Denmark, not a single copy in Norway, two copies in Italy, 2 copies in England and 2 in France. "For the rest of his life he was able to live a financially carefree existence, having in May 1773 married the widow of a rich Norwegian merchant, Anna Carlsen, née Paludan. Through his marriage Müller formed close ties with Norway, his 'new fatherland' as he occasionally called that country. During the remainder of his life he often spent the summer on his estate at Drobak, on Oslo Fiord, and he traveled a good deal about Norway, inland and along the coasts, studying and collecting material for his scientific work" (Anker). Müller was one of the first to use a dredge to collect specimens on a scale never used before. "Müller must therefore be regarded as one of the real pioneers in marine biology?"(Anker). Müller died after the first two volumes had been published, the third volume was by P.C. Abildgaard and the concluding volume by P.C. Abildgaard, J.S. Holten, M. Vahl and J.Rathke. Most of the plates are by O.F. Müller's brother C.F. Müller. "In the first part of 'Zoologia Danica', almost all the described animals were from Norway. Except for one fish, all were invertebrates and included protozoans, sponges, coelenterates, flatworms, nematodes, annelids, mollusks, and echinoderms. This pattern was followed fairly closely in all other parts" (Damkaer). Of the 160 plates, 16 show shells, 10 fishes, 4 birds and 1 mammals, the others show marine invertebrates. As far as we can trace we have never offered a complete fully coloured copy. In 1974 we sold a copy from the library of the Belgian zoologist J. Van Beneden. However, the plates of the last part of this copy were not coloured. Our copy has the stamp of Léon Vaillant on 2 title pages. Léon Vaillant (1834-1914) was a French zoologist and professor at the Museum of natural History in Paris. A very clean and fine copy, with splendid colouring of the plates. For the complicated publishing history of the 'Zoologia Danica' see page 91-94 of Anker's monograph on Müller. Nissen ZBI, 2932; D.M. Damkaer, The Copepodologist's Cabinet pp. 72-87; Jean Anker, Otto Friderich Müller's Zoologia Danica. Copenhagen 1950.

        THE ADVENTURES OF A SILVER PENNY. Including Many Secret Anecdotes of Little Misses and Masters both Good and Naughty.

      Wood-engraved frontispiece signed 'Bwk', [4], 126 pages. 12 woodcuts in text. Original Dutch floral boards. One of two variants of this edition with the frontis' either found signed or unsigned by Bewick. Lacks rear endpaper; re-backed at some time in matching 18th century paper; inscription on front fixed endpaper and the bookplate of Sydney Roscoe;; small corner torn from top outer edge of title; else a very good copy of a rare work contained in a folding cloth, gilt box. Roscoe J3920. Originally Sydney Roscoe's copy with his bookplate and note on rear endpaper, later Margaret Weedon's. According to Nigel Tattersfield's research, this title was first published as Roscoe suggested, in 1786. However, 'the original woodcuts were undistinguished and it was not long before JB was commissioned to provide a completely new set. It was probably amongst the 'several Jobs for Newbery' that John reported to his brother he had done on his own account by mid-February 1788. It is salutary to compare the cuts however, for John improves the original illustrations out of all recognition.' The British Library has the original edition of 1786. Clearly the above copy is the Bewick edition of circa 1788.

        Critik der practischen Vernunft.

      Riga, Hartknoch, 1788. 8vo. A bit later (1840'ies) half cloth with gilding to spine. Old allegorical stamp to title-page; another stamp at lower margin removed, likewise old owner's name.Otherwise a very nice copy. Woodcut title-vignette. 292 pp.. First edition of Kant's second main work, the second of his critical works, and his main work on practical philosophy. Together Kant's three critiques, that of pure reason, that of practical reason and that of judgement, make up the most important contribution to philosophy since Aristotle and Plato. Kant's influence on modern philosophy is primarily due to his critical works, and with them he gives to philosophy a new and comprehensive way of dealing systematically with the problems of philosophy. In his "Critique of Practical reason" Kant establishes the "Categorical Imperative", which was to found modern ethics, and with it he establishes the moral philosophy that ties together all of his critical philosophy. The work has dominated Western ethical thought decisively from the time of its appearance.Warda: 112. See also Printing and the Mind of Man 226 (Critik der reinen Vernunft)

        The NAVAL ATALANTIS; or, A Display of the Characters of Such Flag Officers as Were Distinguished During the Last War. [bound with] The NAVAL ATALANTIS; or, A Display of the Characters of Post-Captains, Who Served During the Late War. Part II

      London:: Printed for James Ridgway,. 1788 / 1789.. 8vo. 8-1/2" x 5-1/8". 1st edition (Howes H229; Sabin 52070 [Part I only]). [4], iv, 195, [1 (blank)]; [2], viii, 125, [1 (advert)] pp.. Binding with later speckled calf leather spine, vellum tips, brown paper-wrapped boards & green leather title label to spine. Speckled edges.. Average wear. Occasional po pencil annotations. Withal, a VG copy.. A volume providing character sketches of 91 British officers, many of whom played a role in the American Revolution, and which several, says Howes, "are unmercifully criticised or lampooned by Harris, notably Viscount William Howe, Lord of the Admiralty." Regarding Admiral Lord Howe, the author states "we do not find that he has in any respect signalized himself; in fact, his Lordship's conduct on the coast of North America, rather served to throw a shade over the laurels he had acquired in his youthÉ" Harris was reputedly the secretary to Admiral Milbanke, who is featured in Part I, as one of the 47 officers covered therein. Part II, published a year later, continues with 44 Captains receiving Harris' critical eye & treatment with his frequently caustic pen. Somewhat rare in the trade, with no copies at auction these last 30+ years, per ABPC & AmEx.

      The Norman copy, in original printed wrappers, of the first modern textbook of psychiatry. Norman 724; Heirs of Hippocrates 1268; Garrison-Morton 4798.<br/><br/> "Esquirol, together with his teacher Pinel, is regarded as the founder of the French school of psychiatry. He was among the first to apply statistical methods to clinical studies of insanity, and his <i>Maladies mentales</i>, based on 20 years of observation and treatment of mental illness, remained a basic psychiatric text for over half a century. Esquirol was the first to distinguish between hallucinations and illusions, and between dementia and idiocy; he also provided the classic description of paresis, coined the term 'monomania' and distinguished certain depressive states from other psychoses. The atlas to his work constitutes the first important iconography of the insane."

Blake 209 und Wellcome III, 255 (beide kennen die deutsche Ausgabe nicht). - Hirsch-H. III, 190f. - Erschien gleichzeitig in französischer Sprache.

"Svenskt biografiskt lexikon" skriver: "Bergwerks lexicon är en huvudkälla för vår kunskap om den äldre järnhanteringen, och som sådan har den en ovärderlig betydelse för förståelsen av olika arbetsprocesser och arbetsoperationer inom så gott som alla järn- och metallhanteringens områden innan modernare metoder började införas från 1820-talet och framåt."

        L'Indiscretion

      Paris: A Paris chez Janinet, rue Haute Feuille, No. 5. Et chez Efnauts et Rapilly, rue St. Jacques, a la Ville de Coutances, No. 259, July 1788. Mixed method colour print, printed in yellow, blue, red, pink and black inks from five plates. Two registration marks in plate. In excellent condition with wide margins. Image size: 14 x 11 inches. 14 1/4 x 19 1/4 inches. 21 3/4 x 16 3/4 inches. This is considered one of Janinet's masterpieces. From a series of boudoir scenes executed in collaboration with the painter Nicolas Lavreince, it is an exquisite example of a newly devised method of colour printing Jean Francois Janinet (1752-1814) was one of the most accomplished French engravers of the eighteenth century. His beautiful images are among the most sought after prints on the market and they stand as a testimony to the superior quality of early French colour printing. "In 1771 Janinet began to work in Bonnet's atelier where he soon mastered the techniques of multiple-plate colour printing and chalk-manner engraving. On his own, he refined these processes by 1772 to produce the first colour prints in imitation of watercolour and wash drawings. These prints were executed entirely with specialized engraver's tools and without recourse to aquatint". During his career "Janinet made more than eight hundred prints, including 260 in drawing books, three hundred views, 175 costume and theatrical portraits, fifty-six scenes of the significant events of the Revolution, as well as numerous little round prints for buttons and box tops, few of which survive". Janinet's best work is exemplified in this beautiful print, which was published as part of a series of twelve. The series was executed in collaboration with the celebrated Swedish artist Nicolas Lavreince. In Paris during the latter part of the eighteenth century there developed a fashion for titillating pictures of intimate boudoir scenes. This print is a wonderful example of this trend, as well as a lovely impression of the engraving. "L'Indiscretion" was published by Janinet in 1788 as the third print in his famous collaborative series with Lavreince. Typical of this genre of French printmaking "L'Indiscretion" is set in an extravagant boudoir where two young women fight for the possession of a love letter.
