At the time of his birth Mulhouse was a free German republic associated with the Swiss Confederation, but was annexed by France 10 years later. He died in that same town in 1839, from a tumor in his neck.Engelmann trained in Switzerland and France at La Rochelle and Bordeaux, and he studied painting and sketching in Jean-Baptiste Regnault?s atelier in Paris. In the summer of 1814 he travelled to Munich, Germany to study lithography, a German invention. The following spring, he founded La Société Lithotypique de Mulhouse. In June 1816 he opened a workshop in Paris.Engelmann is largely credited with bringing lithography to France and later, commercializing chromolithography. In 1837 he was granted an English patent for a process of chromolithography that provided consistently high-quality results.Throughout his life, he produced large numbers of prints, including numerous plates for Baron Isidore Justin Séverin Taylor's celebrated collection of lithographs, «Voyages pittoresques et romantiques dans l?ancienne France».Engelmann's Paris printing company, -Engelmann et Graf- was passed on to his son, Godefroy Engelmann II (b … [Click Below for Full Description]

(DNB).As a diplomat, Bell travelled extensively throughout Russia and Asia. His first expedition (1714-1717), made in the service of Tsar Peter I, took him from Moscow along the Volga to Astrakhan, and thence across the Caspian Sea to Derbent and then on to Esfahan in Persia. Bell's second mission (1721-22) is of even more importance, since his description of the sixteen-month expedition to China via Kazan and Siberia includes descriptions of the Dalai Lama, the Great Wall of China and his residence in Beijing.

Joseph Priestley
J. Johnson, 1788. 2nd Edition . Hardcover. Very Good. Second Edition. xv, 204, (4)pp. Author's catalogue to the rear. Rebound in full calf with new endpapers. Joseph Priestley (1733-1804) was a theologian and natural philosopher. "Priestley's greatest contribution in making Warrington the most notable of dissenting academies was, however, in his restructuring of its curriculum. In his 'Essay on a Course of Liberal Education' (1765) he argued that the standard course of studies had been designed for pupils entering the learned professions. Most of the students at Warrington and other dissenting academies were intended, instead, for civil, active, and commercial life. A different plan should be adopted and that plan, outlined in the 'Essay' and later developed in his 'Miscellaneous Observations Relating to Education' (1778), showed Priestley as an innovative educational philosopher. Probably the most important of his innovations was the minimizing of language study, except for English, and an emphasis on that of natural history, natural philosophy, and modern history." - ODNB Condition: Very good. Sunned cover. Title page browned. Scattered foxing throughout with the occasional tidemark.

Paris; Paris: Veuve Desaint; de l'Imprimerie de la République, 1788; An V [1797]. <p>An exceptional volume, in a fine contemporary binding, containing the first edition of Lagrange's masterpiece, the <em>Méchanique,</em> "one of the outstanding landmarks in the history of both mathematics and mechanics" (Sarton, p. 470) and "perhaps the most beautiful mathematical treatise in existence, together with the corrected second printing of the <em>Théorie, </em>containing Lagrange's formulation of calculus in terms of infinite series, which provided the basis for Augustin-Louis Cauchy's development of complex function theory in the first decades of the next century. The <em>Méchanique</em> contains the discovery of the general equations of motion, the first epochal contribution to theoretical dynamics after Newton's <em>Principia</em>" (Evans). "Lagrange's masterpiece, the <em>Méchanique Analitique</em> (Paris, 1788), laid the foundations of modern mechanics, and occupies a place in the history of the subject second only to that of Newton's <em>Principia</em>" (Wolf). "The year 1797 ... saw the appearance of the famous work of Lagrange, <em>Théorie des fonctions analytiques</em> ... This book developed with care and completeness the characteristic definition and method in terms of 'fonctions dérivées,' based upon Taylor's series, which Lagrange had proposed in 1772 ...

Mention de seconde édition, en réalité quatrième édition, mais seconde parisienne chez Prault. La première, selon La biographie universelle de Michaud, n'aurait été tirée qu'à 24 exemplaire à Newport et destinée aux amis de l'auteur, et la seconde serait tout aussi rare, publiée à Cassel en 1785 ; cependant cette dernière serait fautive et pirate, éditée sans le consentement de l'auteur et incomplète (seulement un volume in-12). La publication du second volume de cette édition en 1791 tend à penser qu'elle est la plus complète. 2 cartes et 3 planches dépliantes in fine.Reliures en pleine basane racinée d'époque.

"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.

JOSEPH ANGELS
BALTIMORE MARYLAND MD, 1788. Offered is a super, longish 4 page, 12 x 7 and a half inches, folded letter handwritten by Joseph Angels to Mrs Whitman, his sister, dated July 24th 1788 Baltimore [Maryland]. Mr Angels proves to be a bit of a prosaic writer and by being so paints a rather interesting picture of social inclinations and mores of the time in Baltimore: 'I cannot let go so good an opportunity pass without writing by Capt Wheaton fearful lest you might suppose that as soon as I was with one sister I would forget the other. You express a desire in your letter to be particularly acquainted with the situation of our intended sister and her connections; for your satisfaction, as it is ever my wish to inform you of everything.' He goes on to detail 'Miss Barney's' family: Capt. Joshua Barney a renowned Revolutionary War hero by capturing the ship General Monk for the Federalists. He explains how the merchants of Baltimore presented the ship to General Washington. He goes on to detail a horrific, terribly devastating storm and the sudden deaths he witnessed. There is an especially interesting passage wherein he describes a two story building housing 'Ladies of Pleasure' completed destroyed by lightning all dead in a moment. He waxes on somewhat philosophically but shows himself as a moral and decent man that may surprise some. . Very Good. 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall. Manuscript.

Mazzei emigrated to America from Italy in 1773 and introduced the cultivation of grapes and olives to the United States. He became a neighbor of Jefferson in Virginia, settling near Monticello at Jefferson's request, and this association led to their long friendship and the author's acquaintance with Franklin and Adams. A staunch Republican, Mazzei took an active role in the Independence movement. In this work he outlines the history of the American colonies, the causes of the Revolution, and the economy and government of the United States. Also discussed are Indians, slavery, emigration, and the Society of the Cincinnati. The book was a contemporary success and remains an important work which Malone characterizes as "probably the most reliable of all the works of the period on the United States" (Thomas Jefferson 2:109-110). Jefferson aided Mazzei in the compilation of the work while acting as American minister in Paris. Sabin 47206; Leclerc 957; Howes M456; Monaghan 1052; Muller 1612; Fay 24; Einaudi 3807; Reese Revolutionary 87.
