Neumann "Zwischen Emanzipation und Anpassung S. 60 ff wo u.a. zu lesen ist "La Roche verfasste die "Briefe an Lina" von einem gesellschaftlichen Standpunkt aus, der die sozialen Gegebebenheiten und Strukturen akzeptiert, weil die Zufriedenheit im eigenen Stand Voraussetzung für ein glückliches Leben ist". "Sophie von La Roches Romane und Prosaschriften wie [.] "Briefe an Lina" [.], die zwischen Fiktion, Belehrung und Lebensratgeber changierten. "Häuslichkeit" war sicher das propagierte Ziel und der entsprechende Rahmen, an dem alles gemessen wurde. Bei aller Vielstimmigkeit, Widersprüchlichkeit und Verständigung bleiben jedoch die getrennten Sphären, Aufgaben, Rollen und besonders die Hierarchie der Geschlechter unantastbar und nicht hintergehbar" (Becker-Cantarino, Die ersten deutschen Frauenzeitschriften). - Text durchgehend etwas gebräunt und teilweise wasserfleckig, trotzdem habenswertes Exemplar dieses seltenen Werkes.

DOLIVIER (Pierre).
Sans lieu, ni nom d'imprimeur, 1788. in-8. 1f. 34pp. Cartonnage moderne genre ancien. Edition Originale extrêmement rare du premier ouvrage politique de Pierre Dolivier, prêtre communiste dont les idées radicales sur la propriété et la justice sociale étaient proches de celles de Babeuf et du mouvement de la Conspiration des Egaux auquel il fut mêlé. Né à Nescher en Auverge, en 1746, mort après 1817, Pierre Dolivier ou d'Olivier devint curé dans un village de montagne. Un prêche dans lequel il dénonça l'utilisation vénale par l'Eglise de "faux" saints, suivi d'insolences à l'égard de son évêque lui valurent des sanctions de la part de la hiérarche ecclésiastique. La révolution devait lui fournir peu après l'occasion d'exposer ses idées radicales sur l'égalité, la société, la propriété des biens et de la terre, le contrôle des prix, le droit naturel, etc. En 1792 Dolivier se maria sans renoncer à son ministère et en 1793 il publia son principal ouvrage "Essai sur la Justice Primitive". Ses conceptions politiques et sociales se retrouvent dans celles de Babeuf qu'il a certainement connu et peut-être fréquenté. "Son influence sur les idées du promoteur de la Conspiration des Egaux est certaine : on retrouva dans les papiers de Babeuf "l'Essai sur la Justice Primitive" et le nom de Dolivier figurait sur la liste des futurs membres de l'assemblée provisoire qui devait gouverner après le coup d'état. Le 24 floréal an IV un mandat d'arrêt fut lancé contre lui comme complice de la Conjuration mais il échappa aux poursuites " (Royet, Notes et Archives, 1789-1794).

MÜLLER, JOHANN HELFRICH.
Frankfurt am Main, Varrentrapp & Wenner, 1788. 8vo. In contemporary modest paper covered board with paper titel-label to spine. Wear to extremities and circular press-mark to back board. Internally fine. (4), 222, (4) pp. The rare first edition of Müller's set of tables created by his famous universal calculating machine (described in his seminal 1786-publication), predating Charles Babbage's differential engine by 40 years. Thereby Müller became the first in the history of mathematics to construct mathematical tables by a computing machine, the present publication being the very first appearance of these. In the beginning of 1780ies Müller was asked by the local superintendent's office to check and recalculate some tables relating to the volumes of trees. To shorten this task he had come up with the idea of a machine for the purpose. Soon he realized however that with a few small changes, he could get the machine to perform subtraction, division and multiplication as well. Müller's calculating machine is very similar to the machine of Hahn and was based on the Stepped Drum of Leibniz, but considerably larger. It was in the form of a round box with a handle placed centrally and the number wheels concentrically arranged around the handle. It could calculate with 14 figures and its number and gear wheels could be altered to enable it to operate with non-decimal number systems."When Müller heard about Hahn's machine and its difficulties, he built his own version. This was a modest four-function calculating machine based on a design first created by G. W. Leibniz over a hundred … [Cliquez ci-dessous pour une description complète]

LAMERVILLE (Jean-Louis-Thomas Heurtault, comte de)
Strasbourg, Imprimerie de Rolland et Jacob, 1788. In-4, demi-basane de l'époque, dos à 4 nerfs (lég. frotté), (2) f., [iii]-xx, 215, (1) p., 15 tableaux dépliants. Edition originale et unique de cet ouvrage d’inspiration physiocratique. Après avoir servi dans les armées du roi et obtenu la concession de terres agricoles dans l'Isle de France (île Maurice), Heurtault de Lamerville s'intéressa aux problèmes financiers que rencontrait la France. Il formule, dans cet ouvrage, des solutions originales à travers un plan de restructuration du système financier et fiscal et la libération des dettes de l’Etat. Il critique les impôts directs et indirects et propose, en remplacement, un impôt territorial, une taille réelle et une "subvention générale". Le dispositif est fondé sur l’instauration d’Assemblées provinciales qui assureraient la perception et la répartition de l’impôt. Mirabeau, Turgot, Le Trosne, Condorcet auront les mêmes objectifs concernant les Assemblées provinciales. (Einaudi, 3185. Goldsmiths, 13642. INED, 2556. Kress, B.1437.

Rumsey, James
Philadelphia: Printed by Joseph James, 1788. 26pp. Small octavo. Contemporary paper wrappers, uncut. Wrappers split, else very good. Provenance: W.H.H. Newman (Buffalo, New York, bookplate and signature on title). Second edition, second issue of this important early pamphlet on steam navigation by one of the two American steam pioneers. James Rumsey's pamphlet was first published under a slightly different title (A PLAN WHEREIN THE POWER OF STEAM IS FULLY SHEWN...) in 1788. It was then reprinted with this title, in two different issues (the first with the word "chep" on the title, the second with the word correctly spelled, as here). Rumsey states in the "Advertisement" on the verso of the title that this pamphlet is reprinted from "a pamphlet published in Virginia, to prove the authors prior right of applying steam, to propel boats &c. as well as to establish the principles on which he has done it, a few copies were then thought sufficient for that purpose, but as Mr. Fitch intends to answer the pamphlet, it is therefore necessary to re-publish as much of it as respects Mr. Fitch, which is done with no other variation, from the original, than to correct a few of the omissions and mistakes that were introduced into the first publication." Rumsey and John Fitch entered into a controversy over whose steam-powered boat had priority. Fitch was the first to publicize his invention and obtained a fourteen- year privilege for the manufacture of steam vessels, giving him a virtual monopoly on its production in America. Rumsey's pamphlet prompted John Fitch to reply by publish … [Cliquez ci-dessous pour une description complète]

[JAPON]
À Pressure, Dans les jardins de M. L'Ébahi, 1788; in-8, VIII + 86 pp., demi-veau gris moderne, dos lisse orné à faux nerfs, date en pied. Hayden : French revolutionary pamphlets, 1334. Pas dans Barbier. Édition originale rare. Dans ce texte anonyme, le Hollandais Wurzkheim raconte au Français l'Ébahi et à l'Anglais Thincker son voyage au Japon, et son périple alors qu'il était comédien auprès du roi du Japon. Ce voyage en lui-même n'a aucune valeur de représentation, l'auteur affirmant dans sa préface : "il n'est donc rien de mieux pour l'âme et pour le corps que de rire de tout ce qui est risible, sauf à tâcher, en riant, d'instruire quelque fois". Au cours du voyage, l'Empereur duJapon s'éprendra d'un singe déguisé en intrigante et Wurzkheim devra fuir sa colère unefois le subterfuge découvert. Le voyage et son récit ne sera pas tant l'occasion de rapporteret décrire un événement particulier dans l'histoire du Japon, mais les expériencesburlesques permettront de peindre les mœurs et coutumes des Japonais, et ainsi deconfirmer si oui ou non tous les hommes se ressemblent, et de constater que : "lescaractères essentiels sont les mêmes chez tous les hommes ; de sorte que, placés dans lesmêmes circonstances, ils offriront les mêmes combinaisons morales et politiques". 1788

(FOSCOLO UGO). VERGILIUS MARO.
Lipsia, Caspar Fritsch, 1788-1789. Quattro volumi in-8ø; legatura coeva in mezza pelle con tasselli e fregi in oro al dorso, carta marmorizzata ai piatti. Qualche restauro ai dorsi e alle cerniere. Esemplare di grande importanza in quanto proveniente dalla biblioteca di Ugo Foscolo, che appose sul foglio bianco di guardia di ciascun volume: "Ugo Foscolo Firenze 1801". Il Virgilio di Lipsia di 1789 curato dal Heyne - certo l'edizione pi-- autorevole fino alla prima met... dell''800 per il testo e il commento - entr• in possesso del Foscolo a Firenze tra il gennaio e il marzo del 1801 (cfr. Foscolo, Opere, Einaudi-Gallimard, 1994, vol. I, pp. 65-66). Questa edizione Š citata nella autografa Lista B dei libri fiorentini (cfr. Nicoletti, La biblioteca fiorentina del Foscolo, Firenze 1978, p. 96, nø 29), e venne poi alienata dalla Magiotti insieme a molti altri volumi del poeta non postillati, mentre gli altri furono donati alla Biblioteca Marucelliana. Il Foscolo fece di questa edizione il fondamentale punto di riferimento per le proprie letture e consultazioni virgiliane; Heyne si trova infatti lodato gi... nel 1803 come il pi-- felice editore di Virgilio nell'introduzione alla "Chioma di Berenice", dedicata appunto agli interpreti di testi classici. Viene poi spessissimo citato nei vari esperimenti di traduzione dell'Iliade (basta una anche superficiale consultazione dell'indice dei nomi del volume terzo dell'edizione nazionale), nonchŠ in diverse lettere, ad esempio quella a Vincenzo Monti del gennaio 1807 (Epistolario, II, p. 161, nø 403).
