        WIEN: VUE GENERALE DE LA VILLE DE VIENNE.

      - Schönes Panorama der Stadt Wien, gesehen von Süden, mit ländlicher Umgebung im Vordergrund. Bauern und Handwerker bringen ihre Waren auf einer Straße in die Stadt und passieren einen Schäfer mit seiner Herde. Die Stadt erhebt sich in dieser bukolisch anmutenden Szenerie mit deutlich erkennbaren architektonischen Markern, wie dem Stephansdom und der Karlskirche. Wienansichten, wie die hier vorliegende, zählten zu beliebten Souvenier- und Sammlerstücken am Anfang des 19. Jahrhunderts. Der Zeichner Jakob Alt (1789-1872) hatte auch an der Neuauflage von Carl Schütz’s Sammlung von Aussichten der Residenzstadt Wien von ihren Vorstädten und einigen umliegenden Örtern (frz. Zweittitel: „Collection de vues de la Ville de Vienne, de ses Fauxbourgs, et quelques Environs") mitgewirkt, die ebenfalls im Verlag Artaria & Comp. ab 1779 erschienen ist. Das vorliegende Blatt stammt aus einer vergleichbaren Serie mit Ansichten europäischer Städte.

        INSECTES.

      - Paris, Panckoucke/ H. Agasse/ Veuve Agasse, 1789-(1832). 7 text volumes & 1 atlas. 4to (260 x 205mm). pp. (4), ccclxxiii, 331; (4), 793; (4), 704; (4), 827; (4), 722; (4), 828; (4), 832, (1); (6), 142, 38, (1), with 398 engraved plates. Contemporary black half calf, gilt ornamented spines with gilt lettering, marbled sides, spine of the atlas volume bound to match at a later date. An attractive and complete set of the entomology section of the famous 'Encyclopédie Méthodique'. The 'Discours préliminaire.' in the first volume is by P.J. Mauduyt. The remaining of the first volume and volumes 2-5 are by the well-known entomologist G.A. Olivier, volume 6 is by P.A. Latreille and J.B. Godart, the final text volume is by Latreille, Le Peletier de Saint-Fargeau, Serville and Guérin, the text belonging to the atlas volume is by Latreille. The 'Encyclopédie Méthodique' is one of the major scientific publication achievements of all time. A complete set of the entomology section with contributions by the most famous entomologists of the time is rare as it was published during the French revolution and spans almost the complete period of publication (1782-1832) of the encyclopedia. "The 'Encyclopédie méthodique.' was one of the largest projects ever conducted to bring together in one publication all the knowledge that existed at one particular time in history. For natural history, this work takes on a special significance because the publication of the EM would be the first time since Linnaeus' 'Systema Naturae' that a complete synthesis of all that was known taxonomically about plants and animals would be printed. At that time, Paris was considered by some as the center of scientific knowledge and a Mecca for scientists. This was chiefly because the major museum of natural history, the Jardin du Roi (and precursor to the Muséum Nationale d'Histoire Naturelle), contained the vast collections of plants and animals made by the many French voyages of exploration that took place in the 1700s" (Evenhuis. Dating and publication of the Encyclopédie Méthodique p. 2).Provenance: Label with name of Kikumaro Okano on inside front-cover.Nissen ZBI, 4621. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        EXTRAIT DES REGISTRES DE L'ASSEMBLÉE PROVINCIALE DE LA PARTIE DU NORD DE LA COLONIE FRANÇOISE DE SAINT-DOMINGUE. DES DELIBÉRATIONS DE LA SÉANCE DU MERCREDI 18 NOVEMBRE 1789...[caption title]

      [Cap-Français, 1789. Old folds, minor wear at edges, some minor foxing. Very good. Broadside, signed in type by Jean-Jacques Bacon de la Chevalerie (1731-1815) as President and by Geanty as Secretary, concerning the local militia. This broadside is an excellent testimony to the formation, in August 1789, of assemblies composed of white settlers only - which was actually illegal until their authorization by the National Assembly in a decree of March 8, 1790, made under the pressure from the colonial committee in Paris which realized the situation on St. Domingue was out of control. Here, the assembly deals with the organization of a militia responsible for ensuring the public tranquility, on the model of the National Guard in the Paris. Brigadier Bacon de la Chevalerie, chosen from the outset by the settlers to chair the Northern Provincial Assembly, declared himself leader of the white separatist movement on the island and played a significant role in the revolutionary events of the period. A rare format for surviving imprints from St. Domingue. From imprints handled by this firm we know that there was a rich print culture in St. Domingue on the verge of the revolution. There were presses at Saint Marc, Port-au- Prince, and Cap Français, with probably two or three different printers at each of the last two. All Caribbean printing is quite rare.

Vermutlich Vorzeichnung für eine Graphik. Warnberger war Schüler der Münchner Akademie und von J.Gg. Winter (1751-1789). 1810 wurde er zum königlichen Hofmaler und 1824 zum Mitglied der Akademie ernannt. Seine größte Bedeutung hat er nicht als Künstler, sondern als einer der frühen Entdecker des bayerischen Oberlandes. Er war schon früh mit der Familie Dillis befreundet. Ein um 1794 entstandenes Aquarell von J.G. von Dillis (1759-1841), das seinen Bruder Cantius (1769-1847) zusammen mit Warnberger zeigt, legt von dieser Freundschaft Zeugnis ab (vgl. Ausst.

        Méchanique Morale ou Essai sur l'Art de Perfectionner et d'Employer ses Or EDITION ORIGINALE

      A Genève [Auxerre]: S.n., 1789. Fine. S.n., A Genève [Auxerre] 1789, in 8 (13x20cm), viij (1f.) 416pp. et (2f) vj, (1f) (1fbc.) 464pp., deux tomes reliés en deux volumes. - First Edition. Rare. Absent the BN of France. Full Veu contemporary. Smooth back to the net. Parts of title and volume number of red and black. Fillets border on covers. Gilt edges. Some frictions. Antoine de La Salle (1754-1829), philosopher and scientist, was certainly one of the most interesting thinkers of his time, his ideas, sometimes whimsical and messy made him the leader of the physico-moral school. The share of physiognomy naturally has an important role in this theory. The Mechanics is both a classic treatise of physiognomy, and another to consider the relationship between the moral and body way from an educational perspective. Besides this, the Mechanics is also a treaty of understanding and logic, there are theories about the phonetics and linguistics, in short everything related to human, moral, intellectual and physical. The room had an eventful life, made many trips, visited America and Asia, studied the relationship between Buddhism and Christianity, wrote an unpublished history of China, and learned Arabic. Then, having left the Navy, he surveyed Europe, living in Spain and Italy before returning to settle in Paris where he devoted himself to philosophy and science. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate. Contact us for any information! - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Edition originale. Rare. Absent à la BN de France. Reliures en plein Veu d'époque. Dos lisse à filets. Pièces de titre et de tomaison rouges et noires. Filets d'encadrement sur les plats. Tranches dorées. Quelques frottements. Antoine de La Salle (1754-1829), philosophe et scientifique, fut certainement l'un des penseurs les plus curieux de son époque, ses idées, parfois fantasques et brouillonnes firent de lui le chef de l'école physico-morale. La part de la physiognomonie a naturellement une part importante dans cette théorie. La Mechanique est à la fois un traité classique de physiognomonie, et une façon nouvelle d'envisager les rapports entre le moral et le corps dans une perspective éducative. Outre cela, la Mechanique est également un traité de l'entendement et de la logique, on y trouve des théories sur la phonétique et la linguistique, en bref tout ce qui touche à l'homme, moral, intellectuel et physique. La salle eut une vie mouvementée, fit de nombreux voyages, visita l'Amérique et l'Asie, étudia les rapports du bouddhisme et du christianisme, écrivit une Histoire de la Chine inédite, et apprit l'arabe. Puis, ayant quitté la marine, il arpenta l'Europe, vivant en Espagne puis en Italie avant de revenir s'installer à Paris où il se consacra à la philosophie et aux sciences.

Lit.: Tiele 69 (3 delen van de eerste editie, 1789-1790), Mateboer 741, 742 en 743 (3 delen), Buijnsters 512 en 513 (kent één set van 4 delen), Van der Meulen p. 29 (drie delen, 1789-1791); Bodel Nijenhuis 173 (3 delen, 1789-1792)".In 1789 en 1790 verschenen bij Langeveld drie delen van De jonge reiziger, door Jan Aukes Backer, koopman in Harlingen, die wegens achteruitgang van zijn zaken als broodschrijver door Nederland trok. In 1791 volgde nog een - thans uiterst zeldzaam - dunner deeltje IV. In deel I tegenover p. 154 een uitslaande prent van het paviljoen Welgelegen in Haarlem, door J.L. van Beek 1789, naar D. Kerkhoff. Dit is de enige illustratie in het werk. Van de delen I-III verscheen in 1797 een tweede editie, die deels een titeluitgave is. Het vierde deeltje werd hier niet bijgevoegd. De drie delen hebben een gegraveerd titelblad, met een portretmedaillon door F.J. Pfeiffer, voorstellende Charlotte die een brief van Ferdinand leest. Backer laat in deze briefroman een ik-figuur, een jonge en rijke academicus, met zijn knecht door West- en midden-Nederland reizen. Behalve over topografie en historie van de bezochte plaatsen schrijft hij ook over logeerpartijen, theaterbezoek en geeft hij allerlei persoonlijke ontboezemingen. "Het boek dat oorspronkelijk in afleveringen verscheen (drie afleveringen per deel), is een curieus mengsel van topografie en briefroman en was volgens het Voorbericht bedoeld voor "de Vaderlandsche jeugd", maar de optredende figuren blijken de schoolleeftijd al ontgroeid."

        The Loiterer

      Oxford: Printed for the author and sold by C. S. Rann [others in later parts],, 1789?-90. Octavo (208 x 125 mm) in 60 parts, with printed part-titles for each. Contemporary pale tan polished calf, spine divided in 6 compartments by raised bands, red morocco label, other compartments gilt with central flower tools. Contemporary ownership inscription of R. Ekins at head of front free endpaper. Joints starting, some light chipping and wear, part-title for No. 2 mounted on a stub, Q1 with small marginal tear in corner with loss, marginal worming to a few leaves, a very good copy. First edition, possibly Jane Austen's first appearance in print. This scarce periodical was written by James and Henry Austen while they were at Oxford. Some scholars have suggested that in issue number 9, the letter signed "Sophia Sentiment" was the work of their sister Jane when she was 14. Although Gilson does not include this work in his Bibliography, there is a strong case that the work was written by Jane Austen. According to the British Library, "critics such as Paula Byrne have noted that there are various correspondences between the letter and Jane Austen's juvenilia. Her early, epistolary novel Love and Freindship [sic], for example, has two heroines quite as shallow as Sophia. But other critics, such as Kathryn Sutherland and Claire Tomalin, find it unlikely that Austen would have written a letter so critical of women's reading choices. They suggest that Sophia Sentiment's letter was probably written by one of Austen's brothers." Even if "Sophia Sentiment" cannot be definitively linked with Jane Austen, the experience her brothers had in printing this work no doubt had some influence on her. Gilson suggests that it was through the publication of The Loiterer that she became acquainted with Egerton of Whitehall (who were the London distributors of this work from the fifth number on) who later published her Sense and Sensibility.

        An account of the principal lazarettos in Europe; with various papers relative to the plague: together with further observations on some foreign prisons and hospitals; and additional remarks on the present state of those in Great Britain and Ireland

      Warrington, printed by William Eyres; and sold by T. Cadell, J. Johnson, C. Dilly, and J. Taylor, in London. 1789. 4to., with 22 engraved plates (of which 20 are folding) and one very large engraved folding table, viii + 259 + (15)pp., including the half-title, some marginal browning, original (probably) marbled boards with original (probably) printed spine label, entirely uncut with minor binding wear. An excellent presentation copy, inscribed by Howard >on the flyleaf: 'Mr Howard requests Mrs Sampson will be kind enough to accept this book from him, as a small mark of his esteem.'> With Margaret Sampson's ownership signature on following leaf ('Margaret Sampson 1789>') and with the later ownership signature of James Froud ('Jas. Froud 1834>') on title-page. In all a choice copy largely in its original state. First edition. Baumgartner 21. Goldsmiths 13969. This was in effect a sequel to Howard's iconic work on prisons (Warrington, 1777). 'Shortly after Howard had visited his first prisons in the winter of 1773 he became interested in other public institutions and began to investigate bridewells, hospitals, and lazarettos. He soon became aware of the various medical and public health problems which are indigenous in such institutions. As he says in the introduction to the Lazarettos>: 'In my latest tours, I had with pain observed, that notwithstanding the regulations which had been made in our country, and elsewhere, for preserving health in prisons and hospitals, yet that infectious diseases continued occasionally to arise and spread in them. I had also been led, by the view of several lazarettos in my travels, to consider how much all trading nations are exposed to that dreadful scourge of mankind [plague] ....'. He had recorded in the 1784 edition of The state of the prisons> a wish 'that some future traveller would give us plans of this lazaretto [Leghorn], and that at Ancona and other places.' The following year he sailed abroad to do the job himself. The plans and careful notes on the management and personnel of the various institutions he visited constitute the bulk of the Lazarettos.> [Baumgartner p.33].

In early 1789 Hayley is recorded as revising the proof sheets for four volumes which 'were nothing more or less than a novel, which a singular incident induced the poet to compose. It happened that in revising for his literary friend, Charlotte Smith, one of her novels in manuscript, he objected to her mode of terminating the story, and suggested a new train of occurrences for that purpose. The lady, of a most lively and powerful imagination, had anticipated the objections of her friendly critic, and forming from her own fancy a new catastrophe for her composition, had no occasion to avail herself of the poet's suggestion. The idea, however, that he had started, appeared too good to be utterly lost; and he was therefore tempted to build upon it the novel in a series of letters, which he entitled,

The one report not taken by Blackstone himself is the Case of Burgess v. Wheate in Vol. 1, which was reported by Mr. Fazakerly.

        MINUTES OF THE CONVENTION OF THE COMMONWEALTH OF PENNSYLVANIA WHICH COMMENCED AT PHILADELPHIA, ON TUESDAY THE TWENTY-FOURTH DAY OF NOVEMBER...FOR THE PURPOSE OF REVIEWING, AND IF THEY SEE OCCASION, ALTERING AND AMENDING, THE CONSTITUTION OF THIS STATE. [issued with:] MINUTES OF THE SECOND SESSION OF THE CONVENTION OF THE COMMONWEALTH OF PENNSYLVANIA.... [bound with:] MINUTES OF THE GRAND COMMITTEE OF THE WHOLE CONVENTION OF THE COMMONWEALTH OF PENNSYLVANIA

      Philadelphia: Printed by Zachariah Poulson, 1789-1790.. Three parts bound in one. 146; [147]-222; 101pp. Contemporary sheep, expertly rebacked with original spine. Very good. In a blue morocco box. Provenance: Robert J. Fisher (early signature). Following the adoption of the Federal Constitution and Bill of Rights, Pennsylvania decided to amend its own frame of government, first established with their radical constitution of 1776. The present volume contains the complete minutes of the 1789-90 convention. Often considered a conservative reaction against the excesses of democracy incorporated into the earlier 1776 constitution, the revised document created a bi-cameral legislature and vested strong executive power in the governor and with a separation of powers modeled on the federal constitution. Among the delegates to the Convention of 1789-90 were Thomas McKean, James Wilson, Thomas Mifflin, Timothy Pickering, and Abraham Lincoln (of Berks County, an ancestor of the president). With this constitution, which was ratified in 1790, Pennsylvania went from the most egalitarian state government to the most reactionary. The proceedings of the convention were printed in three parts in folio, and Evans provides each with a separate entry, although the first two are paginated continuously. The work is very rare with all three parts, with the only other examples appearing in auction records being from the libraries of Jay Snider in 2008 and Samuel W. Pennypacker in 1906. This example with provenance to Judge Robert J. Fisher (1806-88), graduate of Yale Law School and chief judge of the 19th Pennsylvania judicial district, who for over thirty years presided over the courts in York and Adams counties.

Paris: 1784. 8pp. Contemporay calf, covers bordered in blind, flat spine divided into compartments, red morocco lettering piece in the second, marbled endpapers Provenance: Archibald Philip Primrose, Earl of Rosebery (armorial bookplate) A very rare complete set of Le Rouge's monumental work on garden design and decoration: "the most important engraved work concerning the history of European gardens during the 18th century" (Bernard Korzus): from the library of the Earls of Rosebery. Art historian Bernard Korzus writes: "the most voluminous and most important engraved work concerning the history of European gardens during the 18th century. As a whole this publication contains the most complete collection of views of gardens of Anglo-Chinese or any other mode. These images document the history of gardening over an exceptionally long period, from the projects of George Loudon at the start of the 18th century for the alterations to Wanstead, to the gardens of Monceau and Ermenonville. The plates also contain a quantity (in part the work of Le Rouge alone) of generic general plans, details of parterres, stands of trees, mazes with views of pavillons, temples, kiosks, and other ornaments in classical, neogothic or chinese style. Also included are numerous representations of bridges, menageries, aviaries, theatres and amphitheatres, grottoes, 'hermitages', cascades, fountains, garden sculpture and other things of that type. Not only are we offered a large overview of the most important gardens, but also many of the second rank gardens of England, France and Germany" (approximate translation, from B. Korzus's essay "Georges Louis Le Rouge Un cartographie franco-allemand du XVIIIe siecle" in V. Royet Le Rouge, Les Jardins anglo-chinois [Paris: 2004], p.50). Georges-Louis Le Rouge (1707-1790) was a famous cartographer, engraver and architect. He was born in Hanover, the son of the French architect Louis Rémy de la Fosse. From 1736 he lived in Paris, where he obtained a position as military and civil engineer of King Louis XV and Louis XVI. Le Rouge began to publish 'Jardins Anglo-Chinois' in 1775 and continued the project over a period of fourteen years. Included are plans, views and details, often adapted from earlier printed sources, and occasionally from original drawings, of Stowe, Kew, Blair Atholl, Buckingham, Richmond, Chiswick, Esher, Claremont, Windsor, and Wilton, Roissy, Saint-James at Neuilly, Marly, the Trianon, Desert de Retz, numerous other locations in and around Paris, Schwetzingen, Wurzburg, Steinfurt and Orianenbaum. Of the greatest historical importance are the quite detailed plans of a number of gardens that have either disappeared completely or been altered to a point where the original intentions of the garden designer are no longer evident (such as the garden at Raincy which now only exists on paper). The theoretical works and garden design manuals on which Le Rouge also drew include works by Thomas Collins Overton, William Wrighte and of course William Chambers. On a more exotic note, and typifying the vogue for chinoiserie, the 99 plates of the gardens and palaces of the Qianlong Emperor of China (in cahiers 14 to 17) are particularly valuable, and evidently much more carefully executed than the versions published by Chambers. All of the plates were engraved after Chinese woodblock illustrations or paintings. Prominently featured is the Yuan-ming-yuan Imperial garden in the north of Peking. In 1744 the Emperor had commissioned an album of 40 scenes that was painted by Shen Yuan and Tang Dai. Woodblock versions of the album were printed in the Yu zhi Yuan ming yuan shi, an illus
