Half sheepskin brunette small corners slightly later vellum. Smooth back wheels decorated in Greek. Piece of red morocco and volume number of black morocco (adorned with a laurel wreath). Good copy. Dictionary of Physics Paulian enjoyed some success and was reprinted many times with additions; its success lies in the width of the sound spectrum study - the divining rod, scientists, comets, and arid parts of arithmetic, until the last aerostatic experiments - and didactic quality articles; Paulian, long time professor at Avignon in fact this talent to explain the most complex in an affordable way without betraying things is particularly the case for the Newtonian system which he was particularly fond.

        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; [bound with] Appendix, Containing Observations Concerning Foreign Prisons and Hospitals: Collected by Mr Howard in His Concluding Tour.

      First edition. 4to., pp. viii, 259, [xv]; [ii], 32 + 23 engraved plates (many of which folding), including a very large table. With half-title and leaf of instructions to binder bound in. Odd spots of foxing and the occasional light ink smudge, sporadic light toning; several plates with closed tears near attachments, 3 of which significant, plate edges often lightly crumpled, occasional foxing, faint dampstain to fore-edge margin of final 2 plates. Contemporary marbled calf recently rebacked plainly but competently, green morocco gilt spine label, edges coloured yellow, marbled endpapers, cloth-reinforced hinges. Joints a little creased, edges rubbed and corners wearing but a sound, handsome copy.The price of 'Twelve Shillings unbound' is printed below the imprint (omitted in some copies). Howard (1726?-1790) spent 15 months from 1785, travelling throughout western and southern Europe inspecting lazarettos (quarantine stations) for the treatment of plague victims. Here we find the result of his work, An Account of the Principal Lazarettos in Europe, published at Warrington in 1789. In it he surveys conditions in lazarettos, prisons and hospitals, going into great detail and making observations and suggestions for their improvement. He organises his findings by first by country, and then by county when he gets to Ireland, Scotland and England. Writing near the end of his life, he also reflects on his own efforts at reform. Of the Gaol at Southwark he writes that prisoners awaiting transportation to Australia 'lay almost perishing in the gaol': 'I am persuaded this would have been in great measure prevented, if penitentiary houses had been built on the salutory spot at Islington fixed on by Dr. Fothergill and myself: the gentlemen whose continual opposition defeated the design, and adopted the expensive, dangerous and destructive scheme of transportation to Botany Bay, I leave to their own reflections upon their conduct.' (p.147). Howard set off again on his travels a few years later but died of fever at Kherson in southern Russia on 20th January 1790. The results of his final travels are found in the added Appendix here. 'His death was announced in the London Gazette (1790, 174), a unique honour for a civilian, and his statue, the first to be admitted to the cathedral, was erected by public subscription in St Paul's.'

Folio, 12.7*21 cms).Smith, moral philosopher and political economist, whose Wealth of Nations had no rival in scope or depth when published and is still one of the few works in its field to have achieved classic status, meaning simply that it has sustained yet survived repeated reading, critical and adulatory, long after the circumstances which prompted it have become the object of historical enquiry. Though often criticized for its rambling structure, historical digressions, and over-abundance of 'curious facts', the work has a single unifying theme which takes on further ramifications as it is unfolded. As the full title makes clear, it is an enquiry into the nature of wealth, how its benefits should be measured or judged. See ODNB.

        Ueber J. J. Rousseau's Charakter und dessen Schriften. Verschiedene Briefe verfaßt von der Frau von Stael (Tochter des Herrn Necker). 4 Bl., 102 S., 1 w. Bl. Schlichter älterer Pappbd mit gedrucktem Rückenschild.

      Leipzig, Paul Gotthelf Kummer, 1789. - Äußerst seltene erste deutsche Ausgabe des Erstlingswerks der gerade 23jährigen Germaine de Staël; der Übersetzer ist unbekannt. Madame de Staël-Holstein (1766-1817), die Tochter des Bankiers und Finanzministers Ludwigs XVI., Jaques Necker, erhielt ihre Erziehung überwiegend im Haus ihre Eltern, in dem Buffon, Gibbon, F. M. Grimm, Marmontel u. a. häufige Gäste waren. "Fräulein Germaine Necker . wurde frühzeitig ein Wunderkind. Im Salon hatte sie ihren kleinen Holzschemel neben Frau Necker, die sie anhielt, sich gerade zu halten, doch das, was Frau Necker nicht verhindern konnte, waren die Antworten des Kindes an die berühmten Persönlichkeiten ., die Gefallen daran hatten, sich ihm zu stellen und seine Antworten herauszufordern, wobei seine Schlagfertigkeit es nie im Stich ließ. (.) Was aber hauptsächlich in ihr vorherrschte, war die Feinfühligkeit, die zu Ende des 18.Jahrhunderts und hauptsächlich durch den Einfluß Jean Jacques [d.i. Rousseau] über die jungen Herzen Herrschaft gewann (.) Die 'Briefe über Jean-Jacques' [die vorliegende Schrift], im Jahre 1787 verfaßt, sind im wahren Sinn das erste Werk Frau von Stael's, von welchem an wir mit ihr rechnen und in dem sich ihre Anlagen . schon mit Festigkeit und Beredsamkeit herausstellen. Grimm gibt in seinen Schriften Auszüge von dieser, wie er sie nennt, 'reizenden Arbeit'. Die Briefe über Jean Jacques sind Huldigung der Dankbarkeit für den bewunderten und bevorzugten Schriftsteller, an welchen Frau von Staël sich am raschesten anschließt. [Sie] sind ein Hymnus, der aber von ernsten Gedanken erfüllt und zugleich von feinen Beobachtungen durchsetzt ist, ein Hymnus schon in männlichem und zurückgehaltenem Ton, . Alle zukünftigen Schriften der Frau von Stael sind schon im vorhinein in diesem knappen und harmonischen Loblied der Rousseauschen Arbeiten enthalten, wie ein musikalisches Werk sich in seinem Gedanken schon vollständig in der Ouvertüre darstellt. Der Erfolg dieser Briefe, die der wohlmeinenden Strömung der Zeit entsprach, war ein allgemeiner" (zit. nach: St. Zweig (Hrsg). Saint Beuve. Literarische Portraits 1923, Bd II, S. 223 ff. - nach einem freundlichen Hinweis von G. Trauzettel). – Gering stockfleckig, äußerst selten. Kein weiteres Exemplar im dt. Auktionshandel seit 1950 nachzuweisen und nur wenige in deutschen Bibliotheken. – Nicht bei Goedeke und nicht bei Fromm. [Attributes: First Edition]

        A Voyage Round the World; but more particularly to the North-West Coast of America: Performed in 1785, 1786, 1787, and 1788, in the King George and Queen Charlotte, Captains Portlock and Dixon

      Printed for John Stockdale, and George Goulding, London 1789 - (11 1/2 x 9 1/4 inches). xii, 384, xl pp. 20 engraved plates, charts and maps (6 folding charts or maps, 2 engraved portraits, 12 engraved plates [the 5 ornithological plates with contemporary hand-colouring, as issued]). Contemporary mottled calf, covers with a Greek key border in gilt, flat spine gilt, black morocco lettering piece, marbled endpapers Rare deluxe issue with hand coloured plates of the first edition of a classic narrative of the early exploration on the Northwest coast. Portlock, a veteran of Cook's third voyage, and Dixon were sent by the King George's Sound Company to the Northwest coast of North America to investigate the economic possibilities of the fur trade there. En route, they had a long stay in Hawaii, and Portlock's narrative of this visit is of particular interest since Portlock and Dixon were the first captains to visit the Hawaiian islands since the death of Cook. He gives an important account of the situation there, already much altered by European contact. The voyage then proceeded to the Northwest to survey the region. Portlock and Dixon separated, with Portlock exploring northward up the Alaskan coast and Dixon proceeding southward to Nootka Sound. Both Dixon and Portlock published accounts of the voyage, but Portlock is of greater value for his particularly vivid descriptions of the Native Americans and Russians in the region. In addition to the lively narrative, the work is well illustrated with 20 plates and maps: these include a fine large folding general map of the Northwest Coast, and five maps of particular harbours along the coast. In the regular issue, the five bird plates are uncoloured and the text is printed on laid paper. A contemporary advertisement announcing the publication offers "a few copies . printed on fine paper, hot pressed and plates coloured." These deluxe issues, as here, are considerably more rare than the usual uncoloured examples. Besides the obvious benefit of hand coloured illustrations, the paper used for the text of this deluxe issue is a higher quality paper.

      St. Petersburg: Kayserliche Akademie der Wissenschaften, 1789. 1st Edition. Hardcover. 4to (295 x 220 mm). 63 [1]; 94 pp. Signatures: A-H4; A-L4 M-N2 (-N2, presumed blank), 79 of 80 leaves, lacking the engraved plate to Blumenbach's text. Text block untrimmed and partially unopened. Early 19th-century blue paper covered boards (old rebacking, head of spine torn). A stipple engraved portrait of Blumenbach by Ball after Grimm is bound in as a frontispiece. Internally little age-toned, untrimmed leaves little soiled and frayed at fore-margins. Provenance: William Lister*, with engraved booklabel "Dr. Lister, Lincoln's Inn Fields", Walter Pagel Library (paper label to front pastedown). Except for the lacking portrait a fine, unsophisticated copy. ----FIRST EDITION, exceedingly rare. "Two papers responding to the prize question on plant nutrition set by the St. Petersburg Academy of Sciences for 1782 and resubmitted in 1788. There is an appendix by Wolff, the larger second section of the book, Von der eigenthümlichen und wesentlichen Kraft der vegetabilischen sowohl als auch der animalischen Substanz. This is cited as a separate item in Gaissinovitch's D.S.B. article, but it was not published independently. This was a crucial period in the history of the theories of plant nutrition, begun by Ingenhousz's discovery of photosynthesis (1779) but only fully developed when Lavoisier's new chemistry was assimilated. This is discussed by Sachs (History of Botany, 1890, pp. 494), though he does not mention these prize essays on the subject. Wolff is a key Figure in the history of botany, the first since Malpighi and Grew to devote attention to plant anatomy. His Theoria Generationis (1759), which established the theory of epigenesis, laid the foundation of our understanding of the development of plant cells. *William Lister (1757?-1830), the former (perhaps first) owner of this copy took his MD at Edinburgh in 1781. He settled in London and was physician to St. Thomas' Hospital. He was a good classical scholar. (Munk II, pp. 329-7)" R. Gaskell, Books from the Library of Walter Pagel, Pt. 2, 16. This book is very rare with no copy in the USA and the U.K. according to OCLC/Worldcat. Very Good.

        Amsterdam, aandelenbeurs - Pierre Fouquet, ca. 1790.

      OUDSTE AANDELENBEURS TER WERELD?Gezicht van de beurs te Amsterdam?. Kopergravure uitgegeven 1789 door Pierre Fouquet jr. naar een tekening van Herman Schouten uit ca. 1765. Later met de hand gekleurd. Afm. (prent) ca. 27,2 x 36,1 cm.De Amsterdamse koopmansbeurs was in het begin van de 17de eeuw het belangrijkste handelsinstituut ter wereld. Al snel was de beurs een zeer internationale aangelegenheid. Er werd gehandeld in alles wat maar te verhandelen was. Er waren VOC-aandelen te koop, termijncontracten die het recht gaven op een vastgelegd tijdstip voor een vaste prijs partijen goederen te kopen, verzekeringen, maar ook gewoon goederen. Verder konden er verzekeringen worden afgesloten. Er konden contracten over het vervoer van vrachten worden gesloten en er was informatie te krijgen wat verder voor de handel van belang was.In de lente van 1608 werd met de bouw van de Koopmansbeurs begonnen, gedeeltelijk op de gewelven van de sluis, gedeeltelijk op palen van 50 a 60 voet lengte.Het Amsterdamse stadsbestuur was de initiatiefnemer voor de bouw van deze beurs. Het wilde daarmee de handel in de stad op ??n plek concentreren. Dit was bevorderlijk voor de handel en het bood ook mogelijkheden voor regulering. De bouw stond onder leiding van stadsbouwmeester Hendrick de Keyser. Het ontwerp van de beurs was afgeleid van soortgelijke beursgebouwen in Antwerpen en Londen. In 1611 was het de Koopmansbeurs een feit.De Koopmansbeurs bestond uit een rechthoekige binnenplaats met daaromheen een zuilengalerij. Doordat ze gedeeltelijk was gebouwd op brugbogen konden schepen met gestreken mast onder de beurs door varen. De doorgang werd in 1622 afgesloten, eerst met een boom in de vaaropening, vervolgens met zware houten deuren en tenslotte in 1672 werd de doorgang definitief dichtgemetseld. Als reden voor de sluiting wordt aangegeven dat in 1622 een steenhouwersgezel uit Namen, Balthasar Paul, complotteerde om Amsterdam in brand te steken. Een onderdeel van zijn plannen was het in brand steken van de beurs. Zijn plannen mislukten en Balthasar Paul eindigde zijn leven op het schavot op de Dam.Misschien al in 1611, maar in elk geval na de verbouwing en uitbreiding van de beurs in 1668, had de effectenhandel een vaste plaats op de - openlucht - beursvloer.Het overgrote deel van de transacties die in deze beurs gesloten werden, betrof de goederenhandel, maar de Beurs van Hendrick de Keyser was ook de plek waar aandelen in de VOC en, vanaf 1621, ook in de West-Indische Compagnie werden verhandeld. Daarom wordt dit beursgebouw ook beschouwd als de oudste aandelenbeurs ter wereld.Ten behoeve van de korenhandelaren, werd in 1617 bij de Oude Brug, aan de zuidzijde, over het water een aparte korenbeurs gebouwd.In 1835 was de Koopmansbeurs zodanig verzakt dat hij onbruikbaar geworden was en uiteindelijk moest het gebouw tussen 1836 en 1838 gesloopt worden. Ervoor in de plaats kwam de Beurs van Zocher, aan de andere kant van de Dam.Prijs: ?850,-.
