        REQUETE d'une Société rustique à toutes les assemblées générales, provinciales du Royaume, par un curé de campagne, à portion congrue.

      Sans lieu 1788 - In-8° demi-chagrin à la bradel, 71 pages. Edition originale d'une rareté légendaire d'un des principaux textes pré révolutionnaires. L'auteur souhaitait que la paysannerie, dont on sait que l'action pendant l'été 1789, celui de la "grande peur" fut déterminante, forme un ordre distinct du tiers état, composé des travailleurs agricoles, laboureurs et journaliers. Ce texte annonciateur de la lutte des classes, demandant la justice et l'égalité pour le "quatrième état" manque à la plupart des grandes bibliothèques (sauf Kress B.1481), il a été réedité en 1976 par Edhis. - - - L’auteur de cet ouvrage, resté anonyme, a pris pour base de son travail la Limagne, riche région agricole de la plaine d’Auvergne. Il constate avant tout que la paysannerie devrait former un ordre à part, distinct du Tiers-Etat, l’ordre de l’Etat rustique, composé de ceux qui travaillent pour faire vivre : laboureurs, colons, journaliers. Il connait bien les conditions de vie des paysans dont la cause n’a jamais eu d’avocat au fait de leur situation réelle. Il dresse, chiffres à l’appui, un tableau des exactions que subissent les paysans, et demande justice pour eux ; il dénonce l’inégalité flagrante devant l’impôt, qui accable les plus pauvres, et les maintient dans la misère. Peu d’écrits de l’époque ont poussé aussi loin, et avec autant de précisions, les revendications de ce « quatrième état ». - - - Practically no other publication of the time has put forward so clearly, so consequently and with so much exactness, the deplorable situation of the so-called 'fourth class' (the poor farmers), who had to pay up to 80% of their income to the tax collectors [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        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.

        Les Jésuites chassés de la Maçonnerie et leur poignard brisé par les Maçons. (I- la Maçonnerie écossaise comparée avec les trois professions et le secret des Templiers du 14° siècle. II- Mêmeté des quatre v?ux de la compagnie de S. Ignace et des quatre grades de la Maçonnerie de S. Jean).

      Orient de Londres, 1788, 2 parties in 12, de 4ff.-4pp.-134pp. & 4ff.-172pp., 1 planche emblématique gravée h.t. de N. Ransonnette représentant "le poignard des Jésuites retrouvé dans les ténèbres", rel en 2 vol. cart. papier marbré bleu moderne genre ancien, derniers ff. du 2e vol. rognés en marge sinon bon exemplaire bien complet de la gravure qui manque souvent. (ex-libris Den Danske Store Landsloges Arkiv og Bibliothek) Rarissime ouvrage maçonnique, certainement l'un des plus rares, car en grande partie détruit. En effet, La Mère Loge Ecossaise fut tellement irritée par cet ouvrage qu'elle le brûla le 13 juin 1788. L'auteur y accuse ouvertement les Jésuites d'être les fameux Supérieurs Inconnus et ceci à grand renfort de preuves numérologiques et cryptographiques très curieuses. Transportés en Ecosse par Marie Stuart, les "Adonhiramites" profitèrent des troubles du règne de Charles Ier pour s'infiltrer en Angleterre et dans toute l'Europe. La restauration des Stuart fut bien le règne des Jésuites et ce fut de leur 7° collège "d'Hérodon" que sortit la condamnation de Charles Ier d'Angleterre et de Louis XVI, ainsi que le démontre savamment Grasset d'Orcet dans son étude détaillée de la planche emblématique (cf. "le pacte de famine" in Revue Britannique, Nov. 1890). Ce dernier pense d'ailleurs que l'auteur de cet ouvrage ne serait pas Nicolas de Bonneville mais bien plutôt le fameux Abbé Sicard bienfaiteur des sourds-muets. D'ailleurs l'abbé Le Franc dans la "conjuration contre la religion catholique et les Souverains" distingue très nettement le Bonneville président du cercle social de l'auteur des "Jésuites chassés de la maçonnerie...". Les 2 parties de cet ouvrage sont suivies de la réimpression du très rare texte de Samuel Prichard "Masonry dissected..." présenté comme "le plus ancien Rituel des loges maçonniques en Angleterre", et que la Grande Loge de Londres en 1783 avait refusé de publier. ¶ Fesch col.177, Wolfstieg n°34-808 - Dorbon 5490 - cf. Grasset d'Orcet "le pacte de famine" in Matériaux cryptographiques, P. B.Allieu 1979.

        [?Piramo e Tisbe]. Rondò Nel Lasciarti Amato Bene. Musical manuscript full score. Italian. Ca. 1788

      Oblong folio (320 x 230 mm.). Sewn. [i] (title), 41, [ii] (blank), 4 pp. Notated in ink on 10-stave paper. Ascription: "Der Sig:r Mae:o Angelo Tarchi." Header to title in copyist's hand: "In Pisa nel Primavera dell'Anno 1788 Cantato dall'Celebre Sig:r Pietro Muschietti." "Po I No. 11 [?14]" to lower left corner of title. Various watermarks (three crescents, etc.). Aria of Piramo (soprano castrato). Ten-stave system. Scored for [2] Violini, [2] Oboe, [2] Corni [in F], [2] Viole, voice, unfigured instrumental bass. In F major. A second text underlay has been added in a different hand to several passages (written below the instrumental bass). Incipit: "Ho perduto Ogni mio bene..." Final four pages (one bifolium of different paper; watermark of three crescents) notated in a different hand; apparently added later. Note to upper left corner of first extra page: "Rec:vo antecedente a questo che siegue dovrà posare i in alamire terza min:e, a in elami con sesta e terza min:e." Five-stave systems; scored for [2] Violins, Viola, voice [Piramo?], and unfigured instrumental bass. Recitative modulates from D minor to B-flat major. Text incipit: Eh mio Signore Ciò[?] possibil non è Troppo son gravi Le angustie del mio cor. It is not clear whether this recitative belongs to the same work as the aria; there is no trace of the "recitativo antecedente." Spine and edges of some leaves frayed. An enigmatic item. RISM lists no piece with the same music but several with the same text - arias from Giovanni Battista Borghi's Piramo e Tisbe (libretto by Gaetano Sertor), Filippo Maria Gherardeschi's Artaserse, Giuseppe Giordani's L'Acomate, Nicola Zingarelli's La morte de Cesare, etc. The identification of the character as "Piramo" in the present manuscript points to an opera on the subject of Pyramus and Thisbe, using the same libretto as Borghi's; Tarchi, however, has never been credited with such an opera. In addition, Gino dell'Ira's I teatri di Pisa 1773-1986, which chronicles all operatic performances in the city, mentions neither Tarchi nor any opera on the subject of Pyramus and Thisbe; likewise, the singer Pietro Muschietti is not mentioned. The ascription and note on the Pisa performance to the title of the present manuscript are thus somewhat puzzling. The unusual division of the violas might offer a clue to the authorship of the work upon further research.

      London: Printed for J. Buckland, and others, 1787-1788. All bindings match: Brown, full leather with gilt tooling around edges of covers and dentils inside cover edges. Spines have lost all traces of lettering and titling. Includes Vol. 1 (1787, with engraved frontispiece, ffep torn out, 602 pp, followed by 15 pp. index and 1 pp. errata, front cover off, rear cover barely holding on); Volume 3 (1787, The Lives of The Most Eminent English Poets continued., 418 pp., both covers attached but with weak hinges BOOKPLATE); Volume 4 (1787, The Lives of The Most Eminent English Poets continued, 637 pp., front cover and ffep off and rear cover on but weak BOOKPLATE); Volume 5 (1787, The Rambler, 3 pp. Contents, errata, 446 pp., cover attached but hinges weak, BOOKPLATE); Volume 6 (1787, Continuation of The Rambler, 3 pp. Contents, 443 pp., covers attached but hinges weak, BOOKPLATE); Volume 8 (1787, The Idler, 3 pp. COntents, 410 pp., covers attached but weak); Volume 9 (1787, The Adventurer (and) Philological Tracts, 2 pp. Contents, 446 pp., covers attached, BOOKPLATE); Volume 11 (1787, Tales and Visions. A History of Rasselas, Prince of Abissinia (and) Poems (and) Miscellaneous Poems, 4 pp. Contents, 430 pp. followed by 90 pp. of Index and Errata in Index, covers strong VARIANT BOOKPLATE); Volume 12 (1787, printed for John Stockdale, xv, (1), Debates in Parliament, Volume I, 394 pp., covers on, VARIANT BOOKPLATE); Volume 13 (1787), Debates in Parliament, Volume 2, printed for John Stockdale , Contents, References to Speakers, 516 pp., covers on but hinges weak, VARIANT BOOKPLATE); Volume 14 (1788, printed for John Stockdale and G.G.J. and J. Robinson, 4 pp. Preface, 5 pp. Contents, 556 pp., followed by 2 pp. list of New Books printed for John Stockdale, covers on, BOOKPLATE). Heavy set at 20 pounds and will require extra postage. An incomplate but important set. Volumes 1 through 11 (incomplete) were printed in 1787 for J. Buckland, etc. and are titled as being "The Works of Samuel Johnson...in Eleven Volumes." Volumes 12 and 13, also dated 1787, were, however, printed for John Stockdale and titled as "The Works of Samuel Johnson...in Thirteen Volumes." Volume 14, also printed for John Stockdale but dated 1788, is titled, "The Works of Samuel Johnson...in Fourteen Volumes." Presumably, the owner purchased the first 11 volumes as a complete set and then, as subsequent sets were printed more completely, he added to the set. Volumes 12 and 13, as noted on the page following each title page, are Volumes I and II (complete) of the Debates in Parliament. Most of these volumes contain the bookplate of "Richard Curson, jun." and it is presumed that he is the same individual referred to in this text, found in a blogspot relating to Elizabeth Becker Curson (who was born in New York City in 1731): "Elizabeth Becker's final living son, Richard Curson, Jr., was born on 1763 in New York, and fled to Baltimore, in 1777, with his parents. In 1784, he married Elizabeth Moale, had 3 children who lived to maturity, and lived at his parents' home until 1803. Elizabeth had worried about this son Richard for years. He was in ailing health and suffered from a spinal disease since early childhood. In 1787, Elizabeth Becker Curson died and was buried at Old Saint Paul's Episcopal Church Cemetery in Baltimore. In 1805, Richard Curson Sr. died and was buried next to his wife. The following year, their son Richard was declared a lunatic by the Chancery Court of Maryland. The custody of his person & property were given to Samuel Vincent, who had administered the estate for the elder Curson and his wife, Elizabeth Becker Curson. Richard Jr. died on June 14, 1808, and was buried next to his parents in Baltimore." Fair only. Text blocks are clean and solid, with uniform aging and all have matching marbled endpapers. Several covers are detached, but all are present. Most have one of two types of Richard Curson, Junior's oval bookplate, as noted in the detailed description. Still an impressive, if incomplete run of these first editions.

        A Description of all the Bursae Mucosae of the Human Body, their Structure Explained, and Compared with that of the Capsular Ligaments of the Joints, and of those Sacs which line the Cavities of the Thorax and Abdomen...

      Edinburgh: 1788. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Imperial folio. Tall folio (477 x 285mm). 10 engraved plates including four folding (several marginal closed tears without loss), library stamps to title and plates, some spotting and soiling throughout, Birmingham Library bookplate to front pastedown, near-contemporary cloth, rubbed and soiled, some loss to head and foot of spine. ---Garrison-Morton 399.2; Heirs of Hippocrates 1011; NLM/Blake p. 309; Russell 613; Wellcome IV p. 156. - FIRST EDITION. "The first serious study of this subject and the most original anatomical work by the greatest of the Monro dynasty" (Garrison-Morton). "This classic work contains the first full anatomical description of the sacs between the tendons and bones which Albinus had named the bursae mucosae. They are illustrated on ten plates which for explicit clarity and accuracy have not been improved upon" (Heirs of Hippocrates). Of these plates, four are particularly remarkable for having life-sized representations of the arm and leg bones - from finger and toe-tip to shoulder and hip bone. Each of these is constructed from two sheets and as a result, some copies of the work are found with the plates in two parts, and others incomplete. Very Good.

        Enchiridion Historiae Naturalis inserviens, quo termini et delineationes ad Avium, Piscium, Insectorum et Plantarum...

      Halle: Hemmerde and Schwetschke, 1788. Octavo, old stamp on title, in contemporary buff boards. First edition, written as a result of researches made on Cook's second voyage. Forster's manual on biological classification was based on the new species and genera seen by him and his son Georg during their time as naturalists on the voyage (1772-1775), and provided a tantalising thumbnail for the great work of Pacific natural history Forster had been promising to write for almost two decades. The preface discusses their voyage with Cook in detail, and describes how parts of the work were composed while on board Resolution. It was to accommodate the significant expansion of the natural kingdom, and particularly the problems of description and classification arising from antipodean species, that Forster drew up this manual of classification.Rosove notes that the book had some success on the Continent, being approved of in "contemporary French and German scientific circles", and with a French translation appearing two decades later. Indeed, as with many of Forster's works this had a slow-burn: Michael Hoare has argued persuasively that it was only with the 1799 French edition that its impact was properly assessed, not least because that edition was openly addressed to figures like Jussieu and Cuvier (The Tactless Philosopher, p. 220-1). Provenance: Kerssenbrockx (unidentified; oval library stamp on title-page). Minor paper flaw on one leaf, boards slightly rubbed. Very good.

        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. 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. Slight foxing, but very good.

Insgesamt schönes Exemplar in originalem, unrestaurierten Einband der Zeit. ----Goedeke IV/1, 615, 14; Borst 578; Kat. Wolfenbüttel 148; Knigge 25.001; NDB XII, 185. - Seltene erste Ausgabe. "Das bedeutendste gesellschaftsethische Werk des ausgehenden 18. Jh." (NDB XII, 185). Knigges zu sprichwörtlicher Berühmtheit gelangtes Buch will praktische Lebensklugheit vermitteln. Er selber sah in seinem Werk einen Leitfaden für das sich emanzipierende Bürgertum. In seiner humanitären Zielsetzung und seiner starken Betonung des ethischen Lebensprinzips ist es eines der wichtigsten aufklärerischen Schriften und zugleich Spiegel der gesellschaftlichen und politischen Zustände in der zweiten Hälfte des 18. Jahrhunderts. Offensichtlich hatte Knigges Verleger Schmidt in Hannover den zu erwartenden Absatz sehr zurückhaltend eingeschätzt und eine nur sehr kleine Auflage gedruckt. Noch bevor die Nachdrucker reagieren konnten, wurde schon im gleichen Jahr eine zweite Auflage nötig. Dieser folgten die Raubdrucke von 1789. Die erste ist die einzige der rechtmässigen Auflagen, die zeitgenössisch nicht nachgedruckt wurde. Die neuen Auflagen, Nachdrucke und Umarbeitungen bis in unsere Tage sind ungezählt. Very Good....

        Da Asia de Joáo Barros e de Diogo de Couto, Nova Edição...

      Lisbon: Regia Officina Typographica, 1788. 24 volumes, duodecimo, with four portraits and five folding maps; contemporary blonde speckled calf. This extensive set is a fundamental travel book, and the basis for any history of Portuguese exploration. This is the first collected edition of the "Decades" of João de Barros and Diogo de Couto, chronicling the first Portuguese discoveries in Asia, as well as Africa and Brazil. Its twenty-four volumes contain an extraordinary wealth of detail regarding the Portuguese in the East Indies and elsewhere in the New World. An idea of its significance may be gained simply by glancing at the many indexes to the various volumes of Donald Lach's majestic Asia in the Making of Europe, all of which contain multiple extensive references to Barros's work.The Portuguese historian and civil servant Barros had equipped an expedition to the Amazon, but its failure brought him to the verge of poverty. His mercantile ambitions destroyed, Barros retreated into the sanctuary of historical studies. Written at the instigation of the king, Barros first published Décadas da Asia in the middle of the sixteenth century, and it is still regarded as one of the supreme accounts of European exploration and colonisation, and famously includes work on Magellan and his discoveries in the Americas. The first volume, Asia de Ioam de Barros, was published in 1552, and the subsequent volumes of his work in 1555, 1563 and 1615. The authenticity of the fourth, published much later, has been questioned. Its vigour and scope are such that it is one of the founding works of Portuguese literature. It was continued by Diogo de Couto, royal historiographer to Phillip II, whose work is generally more critical. Couto not only furthers Barros's original discussion, but also expands on the arguments for the decline of Portuguese influence in the east.The first eight volumes of this set consist of the four original Décadas; volume nine is a life of Barros by Manoel Severin de Faria together with an index; the remaining fourteen volumes comprise all of Couto's ensuing books, the last volume an index. A fine crisp set.

        Programma inaugurale in quo peculiarem differentialia investigandi rationem ex theoria functionum deducit.

      Helmstadt: J. H. Kühlin, 1788. An important Gauss manuscript, signed and dated 1800. With Gauss's autograph signature and two geometrical diagrams on front endpaper, and a 12-line mathematical proof in his hand on rear endpaper. Gauss's own personal copy of the inaugural dissertation of Johann Friedrich Pfaff, who supervised Gauss's doctoral thesis and was a close personal friend. This is an important Gauss manuscript, signed and dated 1800 by him, and with a mathematical calculation in his hand relating to orbital mechanics, performed at a time when Gauss was deeply involved in the calculation of the orbit of the minor planet Ceres (see below). "In 1801 the creativity of the previous years was reflected in two extraordinary achievements, the Disquisitiones arithmeticae and the calculation of the orbit of the newly discovered planet Ceres" (DSB). Gauss studied at the Brunswick Collegium Carolinum from 1792 to 1795, and then at the University of Göttingen from 1795 to 1798 (where he formed an intimate friendship with Wolfgang Bolyai), supported throughout by a stipend from the Duke of Brunswick. He returned to his parents in Brunswick on 28 September 1798, where he continued to work alone and without access to a good library. The situation changed with a visit to nearby Helmstedt in October: "I have been in Helmstedt and found a very good reception with Pfaff as well as with the custodian of the library. Pfaff came up to my expectations. He shows the unmistakable sign of the genius, of not leaving a matter until he has dug it out as far as possible" (Gauss to Wolfgang Bolyai, 29 November 1798). Pfaff became the supervisor of Gauss's doctoral thesis, Demonstratio nova theorematis, omnem functionem algebraicam rationalem integram unius vaiabilis in factores reales primi vel secundi gradus resolvi posse, which provided the first rigorous proof of the fundamental theorem of algebra. A doctorate from the University of Helmstedt was conferred upon him on 16 July 1799. "About the middle of December 1799, Gauss returned to Helmstedt again in order to use its library. He was cordially received by the librarian Bruns, as well as by the professor of mathematics Johann Friedrich Pfaff (1765-1825), whose acquaintance Gauss had already made during his stay in Helmstedt in October, 1798. Gauss rented a room in Pfaff's home and furnished it himself, but studied so strenuously and incessantly that the others in the house saw him for only a few hours in the evening. He and Pfaff would then take walks "to the spring and to Harpke." The topics of conversation were usually mathematical in nature" (Dunnington, p. 35). In a letter of 16 December 1799 to Bolyai, Gauss wrote: "I am staying here at Professor Pfaff's whom I esteem as an excellent geometer as well as a good man and my warm friend; a man of an innocent and childlike character, without any of the violent emotions which so dishonor a man and are so widespread among scholars." Gauss returned to Brunswick the following spring, evidently taking with him the present copy of Pfaff's dissertation. The discovery of Ceres on New Year's Day 1801 by Joseph Piazzi was reported in the June issue of Monatliche Correspondenz zur Beföde rderung Erd- und Himmelskunde. The astronomers of Europe raced to observe the new planet for themselves, but without success. Piazzi's detailed observations were finally published in the September issue of Monatliche Correspondenz, which reached Gauss in Brunswick. He immediately began working on the determination of the orbit, temporarily putting aside his mathematical researches. He solved the problem some time in November 1801. The following January, Olbers rediscovered the planet, its position agreeing exactly with Gauss's predicted orbit. "The discovery of the planet Ceres introduced Gauss to the world as a theoretical astronomer of the highest order... It was Piazzi's discovery which gave Gauss the opportunity of revealing, in most impressive form, his remarkable mathematical superiority over all his contemporaries" (Dunnington, pp. 55-6). The mathematical calculations performed by Gauss at the rear of the present volume are difficult to interpret precisely - they were intended only for Gauss himself so naturally detailed explanations were unnecessary. They are titled Determinatur curva per aequationem inter radios vectores...," the determination of curves by equations given in polar coordinates (in modern terminology). Moreover, the calculations bear a close resemblance to some of those eventually published in his Theoria motus corporum coelestium (1809), the mature expression of his work on the calculation of planetary orbits. Together with the dating of the manuscript, the conclusion is inescapable that we have here an early expression of Gauss's thoughts on the determination of orbits, the topic which first brought his genius to the attention of the wider scientific world. As the son of a family serving the government of Württemberg, Pfaff went to the Hohe Karlsschule in Stuttgart at the age of nine, completing his legal studies there in the fall of 1785. On the basis of mathematical knowledge that he acquired by himself, Pfaff soon progressed to reading Euler's Introductio in analysin infinitorum. In the fall of 1785, at the urging of Karl Eugen, the duke of Wurttemberg, he began a journey to increase his scientific knowledge. He remained at the University of Göttingen for about two years, studying mathematics with A. G. Kaestner and physics with G. C. Lichtenberg. In the summer of 1787 he travelled to Berlin, in order to improve his skill in practical astronomy with J. E. Bode. Through the recommendation of Lichtenberg, in 1788 Pfaff was appointed full professor of mathematics at the University of Helmstedt as a replacement for Georg Simon Klügel, who had been called to Halle. New professors at Helmstedt traditionally presented an inaugural essay, printed in the present volume. It deals with the differentials of functions which satisfy functional equations, which provides a new approach to the calculus of logarithmic, exponential and trigonometric functions. Pfaff presented his most important mathematical achievement, the theory of Pfaffian forms, in Methodus generalis, aequationes differentiarum partialium, necnon aequationes differentiales vulgares, utrasque primi ordinis, inter quotcunque variabiles, complete integrandi, which he submitted to the Abhandlungen der Königlichen Akademie der Wissenschaften Berlin (1814-1815, pp. 76-136). Despite receiving an exceedingly favourable review by Gauss, its importance was not appreciated until 1827, when it appeared with a paper by Carl Gustav Jacob Jacobi, Über Pfaff's Methode, eine gewohnliche lineare Differentialgleichung zwischen 2 n Variabeln durch ein System von n Gleichungen zu integrieren (Journal für die reine und angewandte Mathematik, Bd. 2, pp. 347-357). Pfaff's Methodus constituted the starting point of a basic theory of integration of partial differential equations which, through the work of Jacobi, Sophus Lie and Elie Cartan, has developed into the modern theory of exterior differential systems. The present volume is from the personal library of Gauss. It was sold as a duplicate in 1951 by the Göttingen State and University Library, at which time it passed into private hands. VD18 10608788. Pfaff's dissertation is rare: KVK locates copies at National Library of Scotland, Staadtsbibliothek Berlin, Göttingen, Tübingen and Wolfenbüttel only. G. W. Dunnington, J. Gray & F.-E. Dohse, Gauss: Titan of Science, Mathematical Association of America, 2004. 4to (207 x 170 mm), pp [1-3] 4-26, in contemporary plain wrappers, title with ink stamp 'Gauss-Bibliothek'.
