PEART (Edward)
Gainsbrough: Printed by H. Mozley. First edition, [2], xxix, [1, blank], [31]-114, [2, errata leaf]pp., old faint neat stamp to title-page, recent quarter calf over marbled paper boards. Edward Peart (1755/6–1824), physician and writer on science and medicine. chiefly known for his works on physical and chemical theory. In his first work, 'The Generation of Animal Heat' (1788), Peart explained all chemical and physical phenomena by assuming the existence of four elements—aether, phlogiston, the acid principle, and earth. [He] revives the idea of John Mayow that animal combustion takes place in the substance of the muscle and not in the lung, as Lavoisier thought. In the same book he sees clearly that the constant temperature of animals in exercise and at rest must be due to a correlation of various functions, and investigates the matter experimentally in a somewhat rough way. The formula 'excitability of the muscular fibres is the great characteristic of life in animals' is still accepted. (DNB). [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

KANT, Immanuel.
Riga: Johann Friedrich Hartknoch, 1788. Riga: Johann Friedrich Hartknoch,, 1788. Octavo (230 x 135 mm). Contemporary interim decorated paper wrappers printed in black and white, uncut edges. Woodcut device to title, woodcut headpiece. Printed in Gothic type. A couple of small ink marks to lower edge of title page. Wrappers slightly discoloured, some wear to spine ends with one exposed cord, lower edges of covers ueneven, endpapers shortened along fore edge, contents browned and lightly foxed, overall a very good, wide-margined copy. First edition of Kant's Critique of Practical Reason, the second of his critical works, in which he develops the concept of categorical imperative. This work established Kant's moral thinking as a cardinal reference in the successive development of ethics. "The influence of Kant is paramount in the critical method of modern philosophy. No other thinker has been able to hold with such firmness the balance between speculative and empirical ideas. His penetrating analysis of the elements involved in synthesis, and the subjective process by which these elements are realized in the individual consciousness, demonstrated the operation of 'pure reason'; and the simplicity and cogency of his arguments achieved immediate fame" (PMM).

He rose through the ranks, ultimately serving as aide-de camp, with the brevet rank of Major, to Brigadier General Jedediah Huntington. After the war Alden was elected deputy secretary of the Continental Congress, became deputy secretary of Foreign Affairs under Washington, and was the man entrusted with the original Constitution after its signing. “On September 18, 1787, the morning after it had been signed, the [Constitution] was placed on the 11:00 a.m. stagecoach for delivery to the Congress in New York City. There all the papers of the Convention were entrusted to Roger Alden, deputy secretary of the Congress” (Kammen, A Machine That Would Go of Itself: The Constitution in American Culture, p. 72). Two years later, Alden was again entrusted with the great state papers, this time including the Declaration of Independence.

Paris Chez l'Auteur n.d 1788 - Landscape folio (54 x 40 cm.), engraved title, engraved dedication, 24 engraved plates accompanied by engraved text, contemporary cartonnage binding, later manuscript label to upper cover, a little light foxing, a very good example.

Distribution was very strictly limited to China, and only one or two rare copies were found in Europe. It was after these sets that Helman made his fine engravings.

LONDON - PHARMACOPOEIA]. [ROYAL COLLEGE OF PHYSICIANS].
1788. Bell, Historical sketch of the progress of pharmacy in Great Britain, pp. 41-43; Wellcome IV, p. 364; Worldcat (3 copies). "Editio altera" of the seventh edition of the London pharmacopoeia. The sixth edition of 1788 had been the first edition influenced by enlightenment science, including the adoption of Linnaeus's system of binomial plant nomenclature. In the seventh edition of 1809, more recent insights were incorporated which had often appeared earlier in the Edinburgh and Dublin pharmacopoeias. The modern French chemical nomenclature, based on the work of Lavoisier, was finally incorporated and several other nomenclatures were reviewed and replaced. Nevertheless, the use of nomenclature and weights and the contents of recipes in the pharmacopoeia were heavily criticized. The most outspoken critique came from the London chemist Richard Phillips (1778-1851), who in an 1810 review citized 73 recipes and found 20 ambiguous measurements. Several of Philips's suggestions, as well as those of other commentators, were adopted for a revised edition which appeared in 1815 but nevertheless contained numerous errors.With a contemporary annotation on the back flyleaf and a second loosely inserted. Some spotting throughout; binding worn, most notably at the hinges; a good copy. [Attributes: First Edition]

Spines slightly dry, front joint of vol. 1 cracked but sound, tips worn, marginal browning to pastedowns, free endpapers and blanks from adhesive used in the original binding, occasional foxing, vol. 1 sig. 2C8 untrimmed at upper outer corner, and folded over. A very good copy. First edition. Jardine (d. 1799), a Royal Artillery officer, was for much of his career stationed in Gibraltar, from where he conducted a mission to the sultan of Morocco, Muhammad III, in 1771; after the end of his active military career in 1776 he became a British agent in Spain. His Letters are "notable for [their] defence of sexual equality" (ODNB), which Jardine based on the profitable intermingling of the sexes which he observed on his travels: Jardine was a friend of William Godwin's and his book was read by Mary Wollstonecraft, who reviewed it favourably in the fourth volume of the Analytical in 1789 (O'Neill, The Burke-Wollstonecraft Debate, p. 116). It proved a demonstrable influence on her Vindication of the Rights of Women, which was published in 1792 (Chernock, Men and the Making of Modern British Feminism, p. 21)

William Shakespeare
London-John Bell, 1788 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A complete set of the famous 'Bell edition' of Shakespeare's works, includingthe two volume Prolegomena. The collection includes all of his majordramaticworks, with plates throughout. The first two volumes here are aremarkably comprehensive and broadprolegomena to his works, and offer interesting analysis of Shakespeare from an era where many of his plays were ofteninterpreted differently, both in their production and in their critical reception. They include Mr Pope's Preface, Mr Theobald's Preface, Sir T. Hanmer's Preface, Dr Warburton's Preface, Dr Johnson's Preface, Mr Stevens's Advertisement to the Second Edition, the unattributed essay On The Origin of The English Stage, the text of the Globe's company's License for Acting, a list of the original actors, and extracts from entries of the Stationer's Company, Mr Malone's Chronology, Rowe's Life of Shakespeare, and otherfascinating arcana. The subsequent eighteen volumescontain on theplays themselves, along with annotations by Samuel Johnson and George Stevens. These annotations are one of the joys of this particular work, preserving as they do the learned comments of two of 18th century England's foremost scholars in their reading of the plays. From Copac: The general title pages are dated 1788, but the plays have separate pagination and title-pages, with dates 1785, 1786, and 1788. The annotations at the ends of the plays also have separate title-pages all with the date 1787. A landmark in the cultural and critical reception of England's greatest author.

Scotti Marcello Eusebio
Stamperia Simoniana, 1788. In 8vo (mm 182x110); pp. XLIV, 281, (3). Segnatura: a-b8 c6 A-R8 S6 (le c. b4v, S5v e S6 bianche). Legatura in piena pergamena coeva, con doppio tassello al dorso recante titolo, autore e numero del tomo in oro. Lievi mancanze e spellature al dorso e ai piatti, angoli un po' danneggiati, aloni e fioriture nel testo dovute alla qualità della carta, ma nel complesso ottima copia genuina. PRIMA EDIZIONE DI GRANDE RARITà. L'autore nato a Napoli nel 1742, da una famiglia originaria dell'isola di Procida, ricevette la prima educazione presso il Collegio dei Cinesi. L'abilità mostrata nello studio convinse ben presto i suoi insegnanti, nonostante la giovane età, a giudicarlo degno di diventare loro collega. Scelse lo stato religioso per potersi più facilmente dedicare ai propri studi e con il passare degli anni crebbe la sua straordinaria abilità sia come studioso che come oratore. Nel 1779 fu chiamato all'Accademia delle scienze e delle lettere di Napoli e successivamente a predicare ad Ischia e ad Aversa. Con la fama, tuttavia, giunsero anche i primi problemi, legati all'accusa mossagli di "spargere nel popolo massime pericolose per la fede". Non potendo più predicare dal pulpito, Scotti ideò un'opera destinata all'istruzione dei marinai: il Catechismo nautico. L'opera era suddivisa in tre parti: nella prima erano presentati i doveri generali, nella seconda i doveri dei marinai e dei capitani di nave, mentre nella terza erano esposti i doveri di coloro che fanno parte dell'armata navale. Nella prima parte, l'unica ad essere stata stampata, l'autore pre … [Click Below for Full Description]

1) [ROWLEY (William) sometimes attributed to. 2) JACKSON (Theodore)
1) 4to, pp. 63 (1), (title-page dusty; small hole pp. 17 / 18, rust or food spot on p. 57) 2) 4to, pp. 24, (title slightly dusty) 1) Two variants exist, both rare; this one, without an imprint, according to ESTC, is held at BL, CU, NL of Ireland, Huntington & Texas Medical. The text, a precis of the government Report, with additional notes and a table, is sometimes attributed to William Rowley. The other variant is dated by ESTC to a year later, i.e. 1789. 2) One of 2 variants, this one, according to ESTC, held at Birmingham Central, BL, CU, NL of S, Harvard, Huntington, McMaster, Princeton & Yale. A fascinating glimpse into one of the more arresting concerns of the day, namely the sanity of the British Monarch, George III. Until recent times, every schoolboy was taught about King George's penchant for talking to the oak trees in Windsor Great Park, but the issue had far more profound constitutional and other implications. Different branches and factions of the medical profession were hence under extreme duress, and medicine became politicised in hitherto unfamiliar ways. At a safe distance in time, the subject was dramatised, to much acclaim, and made into the Oscar-winning film, "The Madness of King George", with a screenplay [1994] by Alan Bennett.

Vincenzo PAZZINI CARLI
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 a … [Click Below for Full Description]

MARTYN, Thomas
London: For B. White and Son,, 1788. and particularly adapted to the Letters on the Elements of Botany. Octavo (214 x 131 mm). Contemporary green straight-grained morocco, title gilt to the spine, compartments formed by single gilt rule, single fillet gilt panel to the boards, dotted edge-roll, gilt edges, greek key roll to the turn-ins, marbled endpapers, blue silk page-marker intact. 38 hand-coloured engraved plates by F. P. Nodder. Spine sunned, some old dark marking to head of back cover. A very good copy with the terminal advertisement leaf. First edition. Thomas Martyn (1735-1825) followed his father as professor of botany at Cambridge. He was an "early adopter" of the Linnaean system and in 1763 gave a course of lectures on that subject. He also translated Rousseau's Letters on the Elements of Botany (1785); in fact, twenty-four of the thirty-two letters in that edition were the work of Martyn. In his "Advertisement" Martyn notes that "Some persons, who have honoured the Letters on the Elements of Botany with their approbation, having signified a wish that the subject might still be further illustrated by figures [i.e. plates], Mr. Nodder, an ingenious artist, has been employed for this purpose". The work of Frederick Polydore Nodder (fl. 1773-1800), described by ODNB as "finely eteched", here "actually underpinned the whole project to illustrate Linnaeus's system of vegetables" (ibid.). The publisher Benjamin White, "produced a wide range of titles, some of great beauty" (ibid.) and was younger brother of Gilbert White; his most famous publication being Gilbert's Na … [Click Below for Full Description]
