        L'Ungheria e parte della Vallachia e della Moldavia I foglio della carta Generale dell'Ungheria e della Turchia Europea (Foglio 1-6)

      Roma 1788 - - EDIZIONE ORIGINALE, COLORITURA COEVA - Importante e decorativa mappa in 6 fogli dei Balcani 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, coloritura coeva dei contorni, leggere bruniture, per il resto in ottimo stato di conservazione. Dimensioni mm. 500x370 ogni foglio. L'Atlante del Cassini fu ristampato dalla Calcografia Camerale nel primo quarto del XIX secolo, prima del 1839. Solo gli esemplari di prima edizione come questo sono stampati su carta vergata coeva e sono colorati a mano in epoca. Le tirature del XIX secolo sono già su carta meccanica, priva di vergelle, e generalmente in bianco e nero. - FIRST EDITION, CONTEMPORARY OUTLINE COLOUR - The Italian painter and engraver, Giovanni Maria Cassini, produced this splendid 6 sheets wall map of Balkans of as part of his epic three-volume atlas. Published in: Nuovo atlante geografico universale delineato sulle ultime osservazioni. Roma, Calcografia camerale, 1792-1801. Cassini 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 original hand colour, some foxing, otherwise in very good condition. The Cassini's Atlas was reprinted by the Calcografia Camerale in the first quarter of XIXth century (before 1839). Only the first edition of the atlas is printed on contemporary laid paper, while the late issue are on XIXth century paper and often without colour. Dimensioni

        Travels from St. Petersburgh in Russia to Various Parts of Asia

      William Creech, Edinburgh 1788 - With 2 large folding maps. Contemporary calf, rebacked, spine with elaborate gilt design and labels, covers lightly rubbed; text is somewhat toned with minor repairs to maps. Generally a very good copy. Third edition of a fascinating narrative vividly detailing Bell's account of his journey through Russia to Serbia, Persia, and into China on behalf of the Russian tsar. This remarkable journey is of extreme importance as one of the most complete and interesting descriptions of travel to Asia in the late eighteenth century. Of particular importance are Bell's notes of the Dalai Lama and the Great Wall of China, as well as his astute observations on the cultures, people, customs, and government in China. Volume II also contains the lengthy journal of Mr. Lorenz de Lange, a Swedish engineer and Russian diplomat stationed at the Court of Peking from 1721-1722, which Bell calls a "curious and authentic piece" (223). Positioned in China at the request of Peter the Great, de Lange saw to it that trade and commerce negotiations went in Russia's favor. The journal provides a unique perspective on relations between Russia and China and the problems that the two countries faced over borders, trade, and commerce. His reports on the border skirmishes between Siberia, Mongolia, and China were invaluable to the Russian empire and had a profound affect on Russian foreign policy. Bell (1691-1780), a Scottish physician and traveler, became the medical attendant to Russian diplomat Artemy Petrovich Volynsky in 1714 and as a result accompanied him on a series of expeditions to Asia beginning in 1715 on behalf of the Russian Tsar. Little is known of his education and career other than his penchant for travel. Advised by William Robertson (1721-1793), the acclaimed Scottish historian and writer, to model his account in the style of Gulliver's Travels, this became Bell's only published work. His third and final voyage to Constantinople was a joint effort between Russia and Great Britain, and Bell's last diplomatic mission.

        O vospitanii detei gospodina Lokka. Perevedeno s frantsuzskago na rossiiskoi iazyk Imperatorskogo Moskovskogo Universiteta Professorom Nikolaem Popovskim. chast' I, izdanie vtoroe [Some Thoughts Concerning Education. Translated from the French into Russian by Nikolai Popovskii, professor of Moscow University, part I, second edition]

      v Tipografii Kompanii Tipograficheskoi, Moscow 1788 - Octavo (22 × 14 cm). Contemporary calf; red and gilt-lettered spine label; VIII, 323 pp. Bookplate of the distinguished collector Martin Winkler. Boards rubbed; front free end paper lightly soiled; one leaf with small tear to margin, not affecting text; still about very good. First part (of two) of the first Russian translation of Locke's famous pedagogical reflections, first published 1759, and very rare. "Despite the fact that Locke occupied a central place in European Enlightenment thought, his works were little known in Russia. Prokopovich, Kantemir, Tatishchev and perhaps Peter himself were acquainted with Locke's ideas, but for most Russians in the eighteenth century Locke was little more than an illustrious name. Locke's one book that did have a palpable impact was his Some Thoughts Concerning Education. Yet though Locke as pedagogue was popular, his reception in Russia, as Marc Raeff has noted, was overshadowed by the then current 'infatuation with Rousseau's pedagogical ideas'" (Marcus C. Levitt, "On Locke's Reception in Eighteenth-Century Russia," 219). Moreover, moralist literature as such was only scarcely represented in Russian publications of the second half of the century. Originally written for a close friend, Locke's 1693 text sets out a system for training noblemen by fostering healthy bodies and virtuous minds, based on the philosopher's assumption that all children are born without innate ideas or characteristics. The work was perhaps the most influential work on education of the eighteenth century, widely translated into other European language and acknowledged by thinkers from Leibniz to Rousseau. This edition, based on a French translation, contains an interesting preface defending Locke before his Russian critics, who rejected his "Englishness" and challenged the applicability of his ideas in Russia. Popovskii argues that Locke's thoughts hold value for preparing the children of "honest parents" anywhere to better serve their fatherland. He justifies Locke's methods for toughening the body, such as washing with cold water, by citing examples from antiquity, and he even suggests extending Locke's approach to children of non-noble birth. From the collection of noted German scholar and icon collector Martin E. Winkler (1893-1982). Neither edition in Bitovt. Svodnyi katalog 3721. Not found in KVK, OCLC (which only show a microform at Harvard). [Attributes: Hard Cover]

He gives a "splendid account of the Indian Nations met with on the North West coast of America, their situation, villages, populations, manners, customs and languages, together with the intercourse and commerce had with them by the members of the expedition. ... Like his contemporary, Captain Peron, Meares was also engaged in the fur trade between British Columbia and China. His vessels were seized at Nootka Sound by the Spaniards, who claimed all that coast as Spanish. War nearly broke out between England and Spain over the question, and the latter had to give way." Lande, A Bibliography of Canadiana, No.1346; "This is one of the early and fundamental books on the Northwest coast of America in general and on Alaska in particular. In addition to his voyages from China to America in 1788 and 1789, which form the principal part of this work, Captain Meares describes his earlier voyage to the Northwest coast from Bengal, which took place in 1786 and 1787... This work, profusely illustrated and with many valuable historical documents appended to the main narrative, is of great importance in the study of early trading in furs originating on the Northwest coast".

        The Federalist: A Collection of Essays Written in Favor of the New Constitution, as Agreed upon by the Federal Convention, September 17, 1787

      John and Andrew MÕLean, New York 1788 - First Edition. Volume two of two only. Modern calf, red leather spine label, gilt work to spine. The second volume of what is generally considered to be one of the most important works of American political thought. Despite lacking the first 36 essays found in volume one, this volume does includes several important pieces by each of the three founding fathers. In Federalist No. 84, Hamilton makes the case that there is no need to amend the Constitution by adding a Bill of Rights, insisting that the various provisions in the proposed Constitution protecting liberty amount to a bill of rights. Federalist No. 78, also written by Hamilton, lays the groundwork for the doctrine of judicial review by federal courts of federal legislation or executive acts. Federalist No. 70 presents Hamilton's case for a one-man chief executive. In Federalist No. 39, Madison presents the clearest exposition of what has come to be called Federalism. An attractive copy, despite imperfections. The title page (1 leaf), the contents pages (2 leaves) and pages 3/4 (1 leaf) are in facsimile, page 5/6 has had its margins enlarged, Article pages at rear are cut with smaller margins and worming damage to these Article pages have been professionally repaired.

        Anfangsgründe der Artillerie

      29 folding engraved plates & one folding printed table. xxxii, 512 pp. 8vo, cont. polished tree-calf (minor foxing), flat spine finely gilt, red morocco lettering piece on spine. Liegnitz & Leipzig: D. Giegert, 1788. Third edition (1st ed.: 1760), of one of the most valued works on artillery of the second half of the 18th century, containing the final revisions of the author. At the beginning of his career, Struensee (1735-1804), was a professor of philosophy and mathematics at the Ritter Academy of Liegnitz (modern-day Legnica). While there, he taught military science and noted the lack of general works on various areas of the subject. He proceeded to write several books within the field, including a notable book on military architecture and the present work on artillery and ballistics. He later became an important government official, specializing in financial administration. This treatise was one of the best books on the subject through the end of the 18th century. The plates depict various kinds of field and stationary artillery and ordnance. Various problems of ballistics are also illustrated. The table presents a chart of measurements divided according to cannon size (4-pound, 8-pound, 12-pound, 16-pound, and 24-pound). Struensee also provides a short annotated bibliography of the best books on artillery published previous to his own work. Very pretty copy. Bookplates of Lt. General G.L. Parker, son of the 2nd Earl of Macclesfield, and South Library. ❧ A.D.B., Vol. 36, p. 661-665. N.B.G., Vol. 44, cols. 569-70.

Hirschfeld durch, dessen theoretische Schriften über die Gartenkunst ergänzt werden durch die von ihm seit 1782 herausgegebenen Gartenkalender." Dies wichtige Dokument der deutschsprachigen Gartenkultur gewinnt seine Bedeutung nicht nur durch die stimmungsvollen Abhandlungen am Vorabend der Französischen Revolution, sondern auch durch die fachgerechten Rezensionen der zeitgen. Gartenliteratur. Die unsign. Kupferstiche sind von hervorragender Qualität. Mit dem 7. Jahrgang endete der Gartenkalender. Im Zuge der großen europäischen Umwälzungen war eine Fortsetzung verlegerisch wohl nicht mehr möglich bzw. vertretbar. Friedrich Schiller selbst hat den Gartenkalender auf das Jahr 1795 in der Nr. 332 der "Allg. Literatur-Ztg." 1794 positiv rezensiert. In diesem Jahrgang begann die Beschreibung der Gartenanlagen zu Hohenheim, denen er sich ausführlich widmet.

        Istoria o Zavoevanii Kitaia Manzhurskimi Tatarami,: Sostoiashchaia v 5 Knigakh, Sochinennaia g. Vozhe de Brunem B. et P.D.M. [History of the Conquest of China by the Manchurian Tatars in 5 parts, Compiled by Vojeu de Brunem; Translated from French by A.R.]

      Moscow Typograficheskaya Company, 1788 - A history of the Manchurian conquest of the Ming Empire in the 17th century and the rise of the Qing Dynasty, translated from the original French edition published in Lyon in 1754. The author behind the pseudonym "Vozhe de Brunem," was Joseph Jouve, 1701-1758, a Jesuit scholar from Lyon. In the Preface he states that this book is an extract from the "History of China" compiled by the Jesuit missionary Moyriac de Mailla, 1669-1748, who lived in China for 45 years, learned the Manchu language and was close to the Kangxi Emperor. Mailla's multi-volume work based primarily on Chinese sources was published in 1777. Jouve systematised and commented on Mailla's text, and also gave a short biography of Mailla in his Preface. This Russian edition was issued at a period of high interest in China and everything Chinese in Russian high society. During the reign of Catherine the Great when the Russian nobility actively collected Chinese art, porcelain and jewellery, Chinese literature and philosophy was translated and published in magazines and books. Our "Istoria" was issued by the famous Russian publisher and bookseller Nikolai Novikov, 1744-1818, whose editions were known for their high quality. Svodny Katalog XVIII 2275. French edition: Cordier BS 629; Löwendahl 468; Lust 436; Morrison II p. 32. One copy only found in Worldcat (Harvard) Bound in period Russian mottled full calf, neatly rebacked.

        Allgemeine Geschichte der Musik, 2 Bände (mit zehn gefalteten Kupfertafeln).

      Leipzig, Schwickert, 1788 - 1801. Vollständiges Werk in zwei Bänden. (Neue) grüne, nach historischen Vorbilder gefertigte Halbleinenbände (Handeinbände) mit goldgeprägten Rückentiteln; Buchrücken in schwarz-grüner Marmorierung und mit Leinenecken. XXXVI, 504, XVIII, 776 S. Beide Bände mit Titelkupfer sowie mit jeweils fünf teilweise mehrfach gefalteten Kupfertafeln (Instrumentenabbildungen etc.). Erster Versuch einer Allgemeingeschichte der Musik in deutscher Sprache des Organisten und Bach-Enthusiasten Johann Nicolaus Forkel (1749 - 1818), der als einer der Begründer der historisch fundierten Musikwissenschaft in Deutschland gilt. Forkel machte sich außerdem als Bach-Forscher einen Namen und gab 1802 die erste Bach-Biographie heraus, für die er auf direkte Informationen aus seiner Korrespondenz mit den Bach-Söhnen Carl Philipp Emanuel und Wilhelm Friedemann zurückgreifen konnte. Forkels Musikgeschichte, welche die Epochen bis zum Ausklang des Mittelalters beleuchtet, kann als dezidiertestes Werk seiner Art im späteren 18. Jahrhundert gelten. Bemerkenswert sind die ausfaltbaren Kupfertafeln (Instrumentenabbildungen) im Anhang. Seiten des ersten Bandes partiell etwas fleckig bzw. gebräunt. Sonst sehr gutes Exemplar dieses musikwissenschaftlich und -historisch überaus bedeutenden Werkes. Die Faltkupfer in sehr guter Erhaltung.

An important argument in favor of adopting the Constitution.

Jackson (1743-1810) was a Harvard graduate, member of Congress, state senator, and in 1789 was made a United States marshal. His arguments are a classic example of a New England Federalist.

Marie Gouze, dite Olympe de Gouges né à Montauban en 1755 et guillotinée à Paris en 1793, est célèbre avant tout pour avoir soutenu l'émancipation des femmes.

"Rebutée par la méchanceté des hommes, ne cherchant qu'à finir mes jours dans une profonde solitude, prête à renoncer à la littérature, délices des imaginations riches & fécondes, tout ce qui sort de mon faible génie doit être considéré comme un fruit que la nature a cultivé & que la main des hommes n'a jamais embelli. Ce fruit je ne le vens pas ...." Admiratrice de Mirabeau, elle se proposa pour défendre Louis XVI et s'opposa à Robespierre qui la fit guillotiner. Premier feuillet poussiéreux, avec une tache d'encre, mais bon exemplaire, tel que paru. *-------*. In-8. Collation : 31 pp. Cousu sur brochure.

        Relacion del último viage al Estrecho de Magallanes de la fragata de S.M. Santa María de la Cabeza en los años de 1785 y 1786...

      Madrid: Ibarra, 1788. Quarto, with an engraved portrait of Magellan as frontispiece, four fine large folding maps and four folding tables; contemporary sprinkled calf, sides bordered in gilt. First edition of the first comprehensive study and the best early description of Patagonia and the Strait of Magellan, then as now an area of strategic and navigational significance. Vargas y Ponce's book gives the official account of the expedition by Antonio de Córdoba on the frigate Santa Maria de la Cabeza, sailing from Cádiz in 1785 with the specific aim of exploring parts of Patagonia and Tierra del Fuego, and of determining whether it was preferable to enter the Pacific by way of the Strait of Magellan or by way of Cape Horn. The large folding maps, fine and detailed, are based on observations made during the voyage.Córdoba's exploration of the Strait of Magellan is accompanied here by Vargas y Ponce's summary of the early explorations of the area, mainly from an examination of original manuscripts in the Spanish archives. He discusses various means of navigating the Strait, with detailed sailing instructions, and describes the climate, indigenous peoples and natural history of the region.An Appendix published five years later, and sometimes found bound with the main work, gave an account of a subsequent voyage to the area by Córdoba. A handsome copy.

To which is added, a correct cash table, swewing(sic) at one entry, the duty for any number of barrels and ports, to 100; and, at two entries, from 100 to 50,000, for common brewers and victuallers; and the other duties on the same useful plan.

The author was an Excise Officer at Sherborne in Dorset. Although he points out that it had been some 18 years since an index to the Excise Laws had been published, it is evident that the project was not a success. Referring to 'the splendid success' of Jellinger Symon's earlier book, Locke declares himself to be financially embarrassed that he could raise only a small number of subscribers to support his own effort.
