      Dresden, 6. XII. 1789.. 1 SS. mit eh. Adresse verso (Faltbrief). 4to.. In italienischer Sprache, an die Musikalienhandlung Artaria & Cie., Wien: "Stimatissimo signore! Partendo da qui, per Vienna una tal Contessa Kufstein mi do l'onore d'inviarla cola medema le tre brama te gran sonate, lei se ne puol servire col accompagnamento ed anche senza, mi perdoni che non li mandato prima, ma i molti affari, ed anche la corretura mi hanno rubato tanto tempo. La sopracennata Contessa parte oggi, e stara di casa nella Weinbergasse in 4 giorni sara in Vienna. - Avrei desiderio che lei sentisse quel' 3 terzetti, che hanno fatto gran chiaso tra la nostra nobilta, perche sono molto facili e brilanti, mi favorisca di dar un consiglio, a chi sui possa fidar in Vienna per farli incidere, giache lei per addesso non se ne puo servir, tutta la nobilta mi secca per cosi dir di mandarli a M. Humel a Berlino, ma io ho poca fede per quel Signore, perche sento che della volte cangia e leva dei passagi (in quei manoscritti che riceve) come li pare e piace. La prego di conservarmi la sua grazia ed amicizia, ed di scrivermi presto come hanno gradito le mie sonate, sperando ne l'effetto dovuto. Resto con tutta la stima e venerazione [...] P.S. La prego (se e possibile) di far li suonare alla prova, da Madama Besier, nata d'Aurenhamer mia granda amica, e bravissima professora, e di reverivla distintamente da parte mia. Perche avrei piacere che lei la sentisse bene." - Verso Empfängervermerk. Teyber, seit 1787 Erster Hoforganist an der Dresdner Hofkapelle, hatte im April 1789 ebendort den nach Berlin durchreisenden Mozart getroffen. Auf Befehl Kaiser Leopolds II. quittierte er in Dresden und kam mit Dezember 1791 als Cembalist und Adjunkt Salieris in das Orchester des Hofoperntheaters nach Wien.

        Versuch einer neuen Theorie des menschlichen Vorstellungsvermögens. 2 Bl., 579 S. Halblederbd d. Z. (Ecken bestoßen, Gelenke angeplatzt) mit Rückenschild und Rückenvergoldung. Marmorpapiervorsätze.

      Prag und Jena, Widtmann und Mauke, 1789. - Erste Ausgabe von Reinholds philosophischem Hauptwerk, in dem er sich bemüht, die bei Kant getrennten Erkenntnisräume von sinnlicher Anschauung einerseits und begrifflichem Verstand andererseits auf das einheitliche Prinzip der Vorstellungstätigkeit zurückzuführen. Kant lehnte diesen als Fortschreibung seiner kritischen Philosophie gemeinten Ansatz Reinholds ab, für Fichte wurde er indes zu einer wichtigen Inspiration für seine Wissenschaftslehre. Reinhold (1758-1823), der Schwiegersohn Wielands, war ein begeisterter Anhänger Kants und seit 1787 Professor in Jena, das er zum Zentrum des Kantischen Kritizismus machte. Sein Ziel war die „. weitere Begründung der Kantischen Lehre der Erkenntnis durch den Nachweis der einheitlichen Wurzel der beiden Erkenntnisstämme Sinnlichkeit und Verstand in dem einen Vorstellungsvermögen, ein Versuch, den er später selbst nicht mehr ganz gelten ließ" (Ziegenfuß). In späteren Jahren wandte Reinhold sich stärker den Lehren Fichtes, Jacobis und Bardilis zu. Als Vorrede die Abhandlung 'Ueber die bisherigen Schicksale der kantischen Philosophie'. – Exlibris Victor Lange. Titel mit handschriftl. Namenseintrag C. M. Pauli. Bis auf gelegentliche Stockflecken sauberes Exemplar. – Goed. V 8, 7. Adickes 252 u. 253. Ziegenfuß II 333. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Eigenh. Widmung mit U.

      Hamburg, 3. VIII. 1789.. 1 S. Qu.-8vo.. "Lieber! Behalten Sie in Ihrem Andenken Ihren Sie gewiß liebenden Freund". - Lange ist der Maler des wahrscheinlich populärsten Bildes seines Schwagers Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, das vermutlich 1782/83 entstand und - wie der Musikwissenschaftler Michael Lorenz 2009 erkannte - ursprünglich auf einem Format von 19 x 15 cm nur Mozarts Kopf zeigte. Wahrscheinlich 1789 wurde mit einer Vergrößerung des kleinen Porträts begonnen, die Mozarts Oberkörper und ein Klavier hinzufügen sollte, aber nie vollendet wurde.

        An Account of the Pelew Islands situated in the Western Part Of The Pacific Ocean.

      London, Printed for Captain Wilson, 1789. . First Octavo Edition, the three previous issues having all been in quarto; pp. x, 271; portrait frontispiece, 3 portraits as issued; original full leather binding, title lettered in gilt on spine, pages browned, chipping to edges of spine, a good copy. Hill, Pacific Voyages, p. 160, citing the first edition of 1788: "In 1783 the Antelope, commanded by Captain Henry Wilson, ran onto a reef near one of the Palau Islands, a previously unexplored group, and was wrecked. The entire crew managed to get safely ashore, where they were well treated by the natives and eventually managed to build a small vessel from the wreck in which they reached Macao. They took Prince Lee Boo, one of King Abba Thulle's sons, with them to England, where he made a very good impression; he unfortunately soon died of smallpox.".

        Voyages en Differentes Provinces de L'Empire de Russie, et dans L'Asie Septentrionale;

      Paris: Maradan,, 1789-93. Traduits de l'Allemand. 6 volumes together, 5 volumes quarto (274 × 214 mm) text and folio (354 × 265 mm) atlas of plates and maps. In the original pinkish paper covered boards, all neatly rebacked to style with typographical labels Atlas with large folding general area map, loosely inserted, and 10 other maps, 3 of them folding, and 2 double-page; 97 plates, 26 of them folding; half-titles present in all volumes. Boards a little rubbed, soiled and softened at the corners, lightly browned throughout, volume I with some marginal dampstaining, but overall a very good, wide-margined set. First edition of "the celebrated French translation" (Cross), of a work originally published in German between 1771 to 1776. Volume I here in the second issue with Maradan imprint and date of 1789, publication having been interrupted - as explained in the Avis - by lack of sufficient paper of the quality required. Born in Berlin in 1741, Peter Simon Pallas was the son of a surgeon. He was educated at Halle, Göttingen, and at Leiden where he submitted his doctorate in 1760. After a trip to England to study natural history and geology, Pallas settled at the Hague where he published his acclaimed Elenchus zoophytorum and Miscellanea zoologica. In 1767 Catherine the Great invited him to St. Petersburg, where he became professor of natural history at the Imperial Academy of Sciences, and in 1768, at the specific request of the tsarina, he was placed in charge of an expedition of five naturalists and seven astronomers into Russia and Siberia. Over the next 6 years the party traversed the empire from the plains of European Russia to the borders of Mongolia. "Pallas arrived back in St Petersburg in July 1774 with a vast amount of data and many fossil specimens, but broken in health. His hair was whitened with fatigue, and nearly all of his companions had died. His journals had been regularly despatched back to St Petersburg and were awaiting him on his arrival" (Howgego) Based upon these Pallas published his major findings, "his chief geological contribution, based largely on his study of the Ural and Altai Mountain ranges of Siberia, was the recognition of the temporal sequence of rocks from the centre to the flanks of a range." This French edition includes additional material covering the findings of the natural historians Samuel Gottlieb Gmelin, who died in the Caucasus during the expedition, Ivan Ivanovich Lepekhin, and Johann Gottlieb Georgi.

      Karlsbad, 28. VII. o. J. - 1 S.Qu.-8vo. "Wo sich Kunst und Anmuth paaren, | Geistes Schwung mit im Verein, | Da wird auch in späten Jahren | Stets Bewunderung Dir sein". - Adalbert Gyrowetz stand als Sekretär und Musiker im Dienst des Grafen Franz von Fünfkirchen in Wien, lernte dort u. a. Mozart und Haydn kennen, trat mit einigen Symphonien als Komponist hervor und setzte seine musikalische Ausbildung bei Nicola Sala und Giovanni Paisiello in Neapel fort. "1789 ging Gyrowetz über Mailand und Paris nach London, wo er seit 1791 für die Salomon Concerts und The Pantheon Theatre als Komponist tätig war und u. a. die Oper 'Semiramide' schrieb, deren Aufführung durch den Brand des Pantheons verhindert wurde, dem auch die Partitur zum Opfer fiel . 1792 kehrte Gyrowetz über Brüssel nach Paris zurück, kam 1793 nach Wien und trat als Legationssekretär in den österr. Staatsdienst ein. 1804-31 war er Hofkapellmeister und Dirigent der Wiener Hofoper und veranstaltete bis 1847 zahlreiche Konzerte. Neben seinen dreißig Opern, u. a. 'Robert oder die Prüfung' (1813) und 'Hans Sachs' (1836), komponierte Gyrowetz vorwiegend Symphonien und Streichquartette" (DBE).

        An account of the principal lazarrettos in Europe. Inscribed to Baron Perryn.

      T Cadell, Warrington & London 1789 - Howard, John (1726?-1790). 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. 4to. [v-vii] viii, 259 [15] pp. 22 engraved plates, fold. eng. table. Lacking half-title and (possibly) initial blank, as in most presentation copies. Warrington: William Eyres for T. Cadell, J. Johnson, C. Dilly, and J. Taylor, 1789. 298 x 233 mm. Half calf, gilt spine, rubbed. Light browning & foxing, but very good. Presentation copy, with blank leaf (possibly original initial blank) bound after the title, bearing Howard's inscription to Sir Richard Perryn, Baron of the Exchequer (1723-1803): "Mr. Howard requests Mr. Baron Perryn, will be kind enough to accept this book from him, as a small mark of his respect." Perryn's engraved bookplate on front pastedown.First Edition. Garrison-Morton 1601. Although best known as a prison reformer on the strength of his famous State of the Prisons in England and Wales (1777; see Printing and the Mind of Man 224), the English philanthropist John Howard was also concerned with the improvement of sanitary conditions in other public institutions. His work in this area represents an important link in the development of the public health movement. The present work, an investigation of the conditions of English and European hospitals (including mental hospitals and quarantine detention houses) contains both plans and notes on management and personnel; it also includes notes of Howard's latest inspections of Irish, Scottish and English prisons.Howard presented this copy of his Lazarettos to British jurist Sir Richard Perryn, who was named Baron (i.e., judge) of the Court of Exchequer in 1776. "As a judge in criminal cases Perryn seems to have been inclined to ameliorate the law's harshness" (Oxford DNB); he was thus likely to have been receptive to Howard's recommendations for prison reform. Arnold M. Muirhead, in his preface to Baumgartner's John Howard, notes that presentation copies of Howard's State of the Prisons usually have the half-title removed and a separate leaf with Howard's inscription inserted; Howard also followed this custom with the Lazarettos.

        An Essay to Direct and Extend the Inquiries of Patriotic Travellers;

      London: printed for the Author and sold by Mr Robinson, Mr Debrett, Mr Payne, Mr Jeffrey & Mr Faulder,, 1789. with further Observations on the Means of preserving the Life, Health, & Property of the unexperienced in their Journies by Land and Sea. Also a Series of Questions, interesting to Society & Humanity, necessary to be proposed for Solution to Men of all ranks & Employments, & of all Nations and Governments, comprising the most serious Points relative to the Objects of all Travels. To which is Annexed a List of English and froeign Works, intended for the Instruction and Benefit of Travellers & a Catalogue of the most interesting European Travels, which have been published in different Languages from the earliest Times, down to September 8th 1787. Two volumes, octavo (184 × 115 mm). Contemporary full sheep, spine gilt ruled in compartments with a single red morocco title label to each. Engraved frontispiece to volume one, engraved title pages to both volumes, folding plates and tables within. Some loss to spine ends, corners worn, a few marks and scratches to covers, joints split but repaired to full strength, internally immaculate, a very good copy indeed. First edition of this fascinating and unusual philanthropic manual for the intellectual European traveller, a production full of utilitarian and philanthropic purpose, yet published in the year that the French Revolution changed the landscape entirely. Count Leopold von Berchtold (1759-1809), Knight of the Military Order of St. Stephen of Tuscany, was a Moravian philanthropist and man of letters, described by Robert Southey in a letter to Cottle (c.1796) as "one of those rare characters who spend their lives doing good, it is his custom in every country he visits to publish books in its language on some subject of practical utility - these he gave away". The book consists of two distinct parts. The first volume outlines a general methodology for the inquisitive traveller (with subject-specific disquistions as well as some highly interesting pieces of technical travel advice), before launching into more than four hundred pages of questions pertinent to the understanding the political, social, economic, cultural and educational situation of whichever nation be visited. The second volume forms an extensive bibliography of English and Continental travel works. The students of the Berchtold methodology are hence provided not with answers about their destination, but with questions, and are encouraged to note down for themselves the responses they glean (whether by their own initiative or by canvassing local opinion) to these questions, which range in topic from"Origin, Manners, and Customs of the Nation" to, "Law and Government", "Philanthropic Society" and "State of the Peasantry", as well as "Navigation", "Finance" (with tables provided for noting down the relative expenses of travel), and more. It is conceivable that Berchtold depended the general utility of this project upon the possibility that his ideal travellers would not only cultivate their own knowledge through his method, but would perhaps report back and collate their findings. A student of the Berchtold method, if not arrested on suspicion of espionage, would surely have gained a more rounded appreciation of the state of Europe than most Grand Tourists. This privately produced, philanthropic work was not reprinted (though a single German edition appeared in 1791, and one French in 1797), and, though fairly well represented institutionally, is rare in commerce, with no copy having appeared at auction since 1978.

        An account of the Pelew Islands,

      London, Nicol, Third edition. 1789. - situated in the Western part of the Pacific Ocean. Composed from the journals and communications of H. Wilson and some of his officers, who were there shipwrecked in the Antelope. Mit gestochenem Porträt, 1 gestochenen Karte, 15 Kupfertafeln, XXVII, 378 Seiten, Halblederband der Zeit mit floraler Rückenvergoldung, 29,5 cm x 24,5 cm, Einband leicht berieben, innen ab und an etwas gebräunt, sonst ein sehr gut erhaltenes breitrandiges Exemplar. Dritte englische Ausgabe, erschien erstmals 1788. Wilson kommandierte das Postschiff Antelope der Englisch-Ostindischen Compagnie und erlitt 1783 vor den Palau-Inseln östlich der Philippinen Schiffbruch. Er hielt sich mit seiner Mannschaft mehrere Monate lang auf den bis dahin wenig bekannten, von Wilson quasi wiederentdeckten Inseln auf, bis er und seine Mannschaft in einem selbstgezimmerten Fahrzeug nach England zurückkehren konnte. Nach seinen Tagebüchern und mündlichen Mitteilungen verfaßte Keate den Bericht über das Abenteuer. "Der Bericht ist . wertvoll als frühester Aufschluß über Charakter und Geberen der zuvor als wilde Kannibalen verschrienen Insulaner, die nun vielmehr 'als Zierde der Menschheit' dem staunenden, sich an der Geschichte begeisternden Publikum vorgestellt wurde."

"1789 ging Gyrowetz über Mailand und Paris nach London, wo er seit 1791 für die Salomon Concerts und The Pantheon Theatre als Komponist tätig war und u. a. die Oper 'Semiramide' schrieb, deren Aufführung durch den Brand des Pantheons verhindert wurde, dem auch die Partitur zum Opfer fiel . 1792 kehrte Gyrowetz über Brüssel nach Paris zurück, kam 1793 nach Wien und trat als Legationssekretär in den österr. Staatsdienst ein. 1804-31 war er Hofkapellmeister und Dirigent der Wiener Hofoper und veranstaltete bis 1847 zahlreiche Konzerte. Neben seinen dreißig Opern, u. a.

        Tiefsee-Radiolarien. Jena, Gustav Fischer (colophon: Frommansche Buchdruckerei Hermann Pohle), 1908. 2 volumes plus supplement. Royal 4to (32 x 26 cm. With 87 numbered (mostly chromo-)lithographed plates after drawings by Marian Hedwig Mülberger and Valentin Haecker (first 31 plates lithographed by Frankfurt & Winter in Frankfurt, the rest by A. Giltsch in Jena), 2 chromolithographed maps and numerous illustrations in text. Original publisher's half red cloth, printed sides, red cloth dust jacket. Supplement disbound.

      BMC NH, Supplement, p. 423; Nissen, ZBI 1789. First and only edition of a rare and extensively illustrated work on radiolaria, a large group of amoeboid protozoa that produce intricate exo-skeletons. The book is based on research from the Valdivia expedition, a German scientific expedition that explored the deep sea in the Atlantic and Indian Oceans in 1898 and 1899. In 1902 Valentin Haecker took over the research from Carl Chun, who led the expedition and collected the various specimens.It was published as the 14th volume of the Wissenschaftliche Ergebnisse der deutschen Tiefsee-Expedition auf dem Dampfer "Valdivia", 1898-1899, and includes the general plate and text volumes, the latter called "Spezieller Teil", and a separate "Algemeiner Teil", paginated as a supplement and apparently issued later. Each volume notes on the binding that the works was not sold in bookstores ("nicht im Buchhandel"). The present copy belonged to the illustrator of the work, Marian Hedwig Mülberger, who also illustrated several other scientific works. It is a sophisticated copy, made up from the copy presented by the author to Mülberger and a copy presented to Professor Karl Bürker that also came in to her possession: the endpapers of the text volume come from the Bürker copy, with the presentation inscription to him, and the supplement probably comes from that copy as well.Also pasted on the endleaf is a typewritten presentation note ("Habent sua fata libelli") signed by Mülberger and dated from Giessen, 21 June 1960, presenting the copy to Dr. Wulf Emmo Ankel in Giessen and explaining the history of the present copy.Binding slightly rubbed near the edges and spine faded. A very good copy of a rare work on radiolaria.

        [EARLY VERSION OF THE "DECLARATION OF THE RIGHTS OF MAN AND OF THE CITIZEN"]. Projet des premiers articles de la Constitution, lu dans la seance du 28 juillet 1789 par M. Mounier, membre du Comite, charge du plan de Constitution

      Paris: Chez Baudouin, imprimeur de l'Assemblee nationale, 1789. FIRST EDITION. FINE COPY. 8vo. 14pp., 1 f. (blank) unbound as issued. Preserved in a protective black cloth case (Cloverleaf Studio) First edition of the famous "Projet de Monier" in its first draft, read just two weeks after the Fall of the Bastille. It includes two chapters: the first is a "Declaration of Human Rights and the Citizen" ('Declaration des droits de l'Homme et du Citoyen') in 23 articles; the second is "Principles of the French Government" ('Principes du Gouvernement Francais') in 35 articles. As is well known, the "Declaration of the Rights of Man and of the Citizen" is a FUNDAMENTAL DOCUMENT of the French Revolution and indeed of all democracies worldwide, defining the individual and collective rights of all individuals as universal. Influenced by the doctrine of natural rights, the rights of Man are valid at all times and in every place, pertaining to human nature itself. Although it establishes fundamental rights for French citizens and all men without exception, it addresses neither the status of women nor slavery; despite that, it is a precursor document to international human rights instruments. * REFERENCES: Emile Walsh, Le declaration des droits de l'homme et du citoyen et l'Assemblee constituante (1903) p. 89-94, with a detailed comparison of Mounier's text and those of his predecessors Sieyes and Lafayette.

Illustrated by more than eight hundred engravings. . . . Translated from the French by Henry Hunter. 3 vols. in 5, 4to. Variously paginated. 173 plates plus numerous text engravings.

Lavater's exposition of character on the basis of physical features was grounded in his religious views and in the philosophy of Goethe, who worked with him on the book for a time. It was the last and most complete work of the descriptive physiognomists, extremely influential both in the history of psychiatry and in English portraiture. The present edition was especially important for the artistic development of John Henry Fuseli (1741-1825) and William Blake (1757-1827), who engraved one plate after Rubens in Vol. I and two vignettes signed "Blake Sc." or "Blake sculp."

The Straw Man Fallacy First published in England in 1725, this is the first printing in America of Watts' first important work; it ultimately became extremely influential in universities and America well through the first half of the 19th century. As an interesting sidenote, Watts, in describing the particular sophism known as the 'straw man", was the first the use the word 'straw" in describing it. At p. 303, he writes: "...and when they have with a great deal of pomp attacked and confoundedthese images of straw of their own making, they triumph over their adversary as if they had confounded his position."

        Regolamento dei Regi spedali di Santa Maria Nuova di Bonifazio

      Florence: Gaetano Cambiagi, 1789. Chiarugi, Vincenzo (1739-1820). Regolamento dei Regi spedali di Santa Maria Nuova di Bonifazio. 4to. lxxviii, [2], 416, [82]pp., incl. 27 charts (some folding, some double-page). Engraved title and 10 folding engraved plates (1 in facsimile). Florence: Gaetano Cambiagi, 1789. 273 x 200 mm. 19th cent. half vellum, marbled boards, light rubbing. Paper flaw in leaf oo1, otherwise fine. First Edition. In 1774, under the enlightened rule of the Grand Duke Peter Leopold of Tuscany, the first law in Europe authorizing hospital care for the insane was enacted. The following year Vincenzo Chiarugi, then senior physician at the Hospital of Santa Maria Nuova, recommended to the Duke that the insane be relocated to the old Bonifazio Hospital, which would be renovated for the purpose; in 1788, the new Bonifazio Hospital was officially opened. Chiarugi was named physician-in-chief of the new hospital, which was dedicated to the care of insane, incurable, invalid and dermatologic patients; his humane administration with regard to the insane marked the first application of the principles of treatment that form the basis of modern psychiatry.Chiarugi required a physical examination and clinical assessment of each patient admitted, hygienic rooms with segregation of the sexes, no restraint beyond strait jacket and cotton strips, a firm but kindly attitude on the part of the staff, and no work assignments for the patients except those that would benefit their situations.When it came time to reprint the regulations of the Hospital of Santa Maria Nuova (which had been issued a few years previously by Count Covoni-Girolami), the Grand Duke encouraged Chiarugi to add a section on the rules and regulations of the Bonifazio Hospital. Chiarugi's additions to this administrative manual constitute the first appearance in print of his reforms in the care of the mentally ill, preceding by four years their fuller exposition in his Della pazzia in genere, e in specie.
