      1 Bl., IV (Vorbericht u. Kritik am Buchgeschäft), 8 S. (VlgsAnz.), S. [3]-460, 2 Bll. (Inhalt) (so kmpl., dabei zahlr. Paginierungsfehler: springt von S.160 auf 146, dann von 173 zu 164 u. von 416 auf 427 436 als 336), 8, Späterer marmorierter Pappband Wolfstieg 41523: "Selten.

Wromschewsky" nach der Biografie zu urteilen, kurz vor seiner Haft geschrieben. Eine zeitnahe Besprechung erschien in "Allgemeine deutsche Bibliothek. 1765-96" (1792, 110.Bd.,1.St., S.119-141). - Carl Friedrich Bahrdt (1740-1792), radikaler evang. Aufklärungstheologe u. Schriftsteller. 1766 ordentlicher Professor der biblischen Philologie in Leipzig. 1768 musste er wegen Affären mit Prostituierten sein Amt niederlegen. Auf Betreiben von Christian Adolph Klotz erhielt er 1769 eine Professur für biblische Altertümer in Erfurt. Ungeachtet seiner Liebschaften heiratete er in Erfurt Johanna Elisabetha Volland, die Witwe des Fürstlich Sächsischen Weimar- u. Eisenacher Regierungssekretärs Christian Wilhelm Kühn. Allerdings erregte er durch seine Lehren bald wieder großen Anstoß, so dass er 1771, vermittelt durch Johann Salomo Semler, einem Ruf als Prediger u. Professor nach Gießen folgte. 1775 verlor er zum dritten Mal sein Amt, wieder auf Grund seines anstößigen Lebenswandels. 1777 trat er der Freimaurerei in England bei. Zunächst landesflüchtig, erhielt er 1779 durch Vermittlung des preußischen Ministers Karl Abraham von Zedlitz die Erlaubnis, in Halle zu leben, wo er als Schriftsteller tätig war u. allen Bestrebungen des Senats u. der orthodoxen Theologen zum Trotz in der philosophischen Fakultät Vorlesungen als Privatdozent hielt, an denen bis zu 900 Hörer teilnahmen. Nachdem er seine Frau verstoßen hatte, lebte er mit seiner Dienstmagd zusammen u. betrieb mit ihr in einem bei Halle gekauften Weinberg eine Gastwirtschaft, von der behauptet wurde es sei ein Freudenhaus. 1783 gründete er, mit Wissen Adam Weishaupts, die quasi-illuminatische Geheimgesellschaft "Deutsche Union der XXII", die 1788 durch eine Kampfschrift von Johann Joachim Christoph Bode aufgedeckt wurde. 1789 geriet Bahrdt als Verfasser des Lustspiels "Das Religionsedikt" erneut in Bedrängnis. Die Satire hatte sich gegen die restaurative Wende in der preußischen Kirchen- u. Kulturpolitik gewandt u. den preußischen König verspottet. Nach fast 8monatiger Untersuchungshaft wurde der äußerst umstrittene Theologe zu einjährigem Festungsarrest in Magdeburg verurteilt. Dort schrieb er seine Autobiographie "Geschichte seines Lebens". Er verstarb 1792 auf seinem Weinberg in Nietleben. - Barhdt schrieb über sich selbst: "Ich bin ein interessanter Mensch, bin berühmt in ganz Deutschland, habe Aufsehen erregt von der Düna bis zum Ursprung des Rheins und von der Weichsel bis an die Maas." (Kommentar, in: Pott, Briefe, Bd.I, Vorrede, S.V/VI. Siehe auch: Th. Hoeren: Präjakobiner in Deutschland Carl Friedrich Bahrdt) - Gering berieben papierbedingt gebräunt (tls. auch stärker) u. fast durchgehend etwas braunfleckig unbeschnitten u. tlw. angerändert gutes Expl. - Sehr selten.

         An Essay on Fevers;

      London: Printed for the Author, and sold by G. G. J. & J. Robinson,, 1790. wherein their Theoretic Genera, Species, and Various Denominations, are, from Observation and Experience, for Thirty Years, in Europe, Africa, and America, and on the Intermediate Seas, reduced under their Characteristic Genus, Febrile Infection; and Cure established on Philosophical Induction. Octavo (210 × 125 mm). Contemporary streaked calf, dark tan morocco label to the flat spine, lyre tools gilt to compartments, gilt milled edge-roll. A little rubbed and soiled, spine pulled at the tail, small patch missing from lower joint, bookplate removed from the front pastedown, front free endpaper starting, light browning, but overall a very good copy. First edition. Uncommon, well-represented institutionally, but just three historic records at auction, the most recent in 1969. The author, Dr. Robert Robertson (1741/2-1829) was appointed physician to the Royal Hospital at Greenwich in 1793 and dedicates the book to "the Right Honourable The Lords Commissioners for Executing the Office of Lord High Admiral of Great Britain and Ireland". Upon finishing his medical studies in his native Scotland, Robertson sailed as surgeon aboard a whaling ship out of Dundee spending four months off the coast of Greenland. In 1760, he entered the Royal Navy as a surgeon's mate and in 1761 was present on Prince of Orange during the action off Belleisle. Between 1761 and 1775 he served aboard naval ships variously off the coasts of Portugal, Ireland, Newfoundland, West Indies and West Africa. " On 12 February 1779 he gained the MD in the University of Aberdeen. During the American War of Independence, and until 1791, he served on the North American station" (ODNB). He became a licentiate of the Royal College of Physicians in London in 1793, and elected FRS in 1804. He died at Greenwich in 1829. In 1779 he had published A Physical Journal kept on board H.M. Ship Rainbow ; in 1789, Observations on Jail, Hospital, or Ship Fever ; and in 1790 this Essay on Fevers. These works were later published in four volumes as Observations on the Diseases Incident to Seamen (1807), with a further two volumes entitled Synopsis morborum appearing in 1810. During his 30 years of naval service, Robertson kept meticulous records of his patients his "works contain some interesting cases, but in the effort to generalise he often becomes obscure, and his chief merit lies in his industry in collecting notes". Robertson was a close friend of James Lind and supported his views on scurvy, but disagreed with Lind's contagionist theories of disease transmission. He also argued against the efforts of William Cullen and others to differentiate infectious fevers. He believed that "when many sailors fell ill at once it was because all were exposed to the debilitating effects of unusually severe weather, not because there were any infectious animalcula or vapours in the air". An appendix provides 39 formulae in Latin followed by a translation of these prescriptions in English. Contemporary ownership inscription head of title page : "C[harles] Bowden, Surgeon. H[onourable] C[ompany] S[hip] Lord Macartney", Bowden was surgeon on the vessel 1797-8, and was appointed assistant surgeon to the Indian Medical Service 1 January 1798 but never took up the appointment. A very well-preserved copy of this interesting and elusive text with an appealing contemporary provenance.

         Carte de la Grece

      Artist: Dezauche/de l Isle JA / G ca ; issued in: Paris; date: ca1790 - - technic: Copper print; - colorit: colored; - condition: Very good; - size (in cm): 45 x 65; - description: Map of Greece and the Aegaen Sea; - vita of the artist: J. A. Dezauche was the successor to Guillaume De L'Isle and Philipe Buache. Guillaume De L isle (1626- 1757) Paris, was a French cartographer known for his popular and accurate maps of Europe and the newly explored Americas and Africa. De L isle was admitted into the French Académie Royale des Sciences, an institution financed by the French state. After that date, he signed his maps with the title of ?Géographe de l?Académie? Five years later, he moved to the Quai de l?Horloge in Paris, a true publishing hub where his business prospered. De L isle?s ascension through the ranks culminated in 1718 when he received the title of Premier Géographe du Roi. His new office consisted in teaching geography to the Dauphin, King Louis XIV?s son, a task for which he received a salary. De L sle?s reputation as a man of science probably helped .This supports the claim of the historian Mary Sponberg Pedley, who says ?once authority was established, a geographer?s name might retain enough value to support two or three generations of mapmakers? In De L isle?s case, it could be said that his accomplishments surpassed his father?s. Up to that point, he had drawn maps not only of European countries, such as Italy, Spain, Germany, Great Britain, Poland, and regions such as the Duchy of Burgundy, but he had also contributed to the empire?s claims to recently explored continents of Africa and the Americas.Like many cartographers of these days, De L isle did not travel with the explorers and elaborated the maps mostly in his office. The quality of his maps depended on a solid network that would provide him first-hand information. Given the family?s reputation and his own, De L isle had access to fairly recent accounts of travellers who were coming back from the New World, which gave him an advantage over his competitors. Being a member of the Académie, he was also aware of recent discoveries, especially in astronomy and measurement. When he could not confirm the accuracy of his source, he would indicate it clearly on his maps. For instance, his Carte de la Louisiane shows a river that the baron of Lahontan claimed he discovered, but no one else could validate it, so Delisle warned the viewer that its actual existence was in doubt. De L isle 's search for exactitude and intellectual honesty entangled him in a legal dispute in 1700 with Jean-Baptiste Nolin, a fellow cartographer. Noticing Nolin had used details that were considered original from his Map of the World, De L isle dragged Nolin in court to prove his plagiarism. In the end, Delisle managed to convince the jury of scientists that Nolin only knew the old methods of cartography and therefore that he had stolen the information from his manuscript. Nolin's maps were confiscated and he was forced to pay the court costs.The scientificity of the work produced by the De L isle family contrasted with the workshop of Sanson. While Sanson knowingly published outdated facts and mistakes, De L isle strived to present up-to-date knowledge. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

He practiced medicine before getting a license, but enrolled later at the University of Glasgow and received his M.D. degree in 1745. After training in obstetrics in London and Paris, he opened a practice in London and began teaching. He invented a "machine", an obstetrical manikin, for instructions. Smellie described the mechanism of labour, designed obstetrical forceps, devised a maneuver to deliver the head of a breech, and published his teachings. He is believed to have painted his own portrait. Use of forceps by W.Smellie The William Smellie Memorial Hospital which provided maternity services in Lanark closed in the early 1990s and was re-located to a unit at the Law Hospital in Carluke. This was also closed recently and maternity services moved to Wishaw General Hospital. It has been alleged that Smellie was involved with either murdering or showing a callous disregard for where his corpses came from (as well as his former pupil William Hunter,and brother John Hunter). The supporting evidence for this theory includes the large number of pregnant corpses Hunter was able to obtain. However, this is widely contested by scholars, and so the debate continues. The tomb in which William Smellie (and later his wife) was buried still stands in the St. Kentigerns section of the state run Lanark graveyard. (Wikipedia).

August 1862 in Wien). Eine gediegene musikalische Ausbildung erhielt er vor allem durch den Salzburger Andreas Brunmayer. Manche Quellen berichten, dass Aßmayer zudem Schüler von Michael Haydn war. 1815 übersiedelte Aßmayer nach Wien und wurde hier Schüler von Hofkapellmeister Antonio Salieri sowie von Vizehofkapellmeister Joseph von Eybler. "Sein Orgelspiel soll ernst und würdig gewesen sein; seine sehr zahlreichen Compositionen, von denen 50 oder noch mehr opera gedruckt sind, zeigen ihn als wackeren Contrapunktisten und wurden als gut gearbeitet und gewandt in der Form, verständig und kräftig im Ausdruck, edel und großartig im Stil gerühmt."

         Swiss botany in the Enllghtenment period: an anonymous manuscript Flora of Switzerland in Latin, with observational notes in French and German.

      Switzerland. Circa ? 1790 - The present item is a product of the marked growth of interest in botany in general and the flora of Switzerland in particular exhibited during the Enlightenment, and exemplified by Jean-Jacques Rousseau's celebrated 'Lettres élémentaires sur la botanique'. Alexandra Cook's 'Jean-Jacques Rousseau and Botany' (2012) is a useful discussion of the subject (see in particular Chapter 3: 'Helvetia mediatrix: the atmosphere of eighteenth-century Swiss science'). It provides in addition a mass of invaluable observational evidence. 396pp, 8vo. The main text, on 186pp of greyish paper, is paginated; it is interleaved with paper of a lighter hue, with five supplemental pages at the rear. Two leaves of paper are tipped in: the first carries a two-page list headed 'Mentha.'; the second carries a one-page list headed 'Trifolium: Halleri'. Internally in good condition, on lightly aged paper; in worn half-binding with vellum spine and corners and grey paper boards, a blank white label cut into a pattern is on the front board, and on the spine a simple white label with '670' in manuscript. Some flowers are pressed between the pages describing the fifteenth class, Tetradynamia. The text is almost entirely written in the Latin language, with occasional observations in French and German. It is in a neat Latin hand, rather than German cursive handwriting. A painstaking and detailed presentation, giving a systematic arrangement and description of the plants of Switzerland, clearly the product of many years of field study, with the interleaved portions supplementing the information within the main text, and referencing the Swiss naturalists Albrecht von Halle (1708-1777) and Abraham Gagnebin (1707-1800). (A work similar in arrangement is the 'Flora Helvetica' of Johann Rudolf Suter (1766-1827), published in 1802.) There are no indications of the authorship or provenance of the volume, but the handwriting would appear to indicate that it dates from around the end of the Eighteenth Century. The main text gives a formal presentation divided into 21 classes from Monandria to Monoecia, these being the first 21 of the 24 classes within the Linnaean taxonomy. The orders within these classes are numbered from 1 to 492; and five supplementary pages at the rear contain orders numbered 122 to 160, under the headings 'umbellae simplices' and 'umbellae compositae'. The interleaved portion of the text gives observational information with reference to locations within Switzerland. Two examples convey the arrangement of the work. The first example is to be found within the fourth class, Tetrandria, where an entry within the main text reads: 'B. | flores incompleti. | 63. Alchemilla. Cal. 8 – fid. infer. Cor. Nulla. | [63.] 271. A. alpina. - H. 1567 – S. I. 96 – G. n. 366 – Dc. II. 589. | fol. subtus sericeis argenteis.' Facing this, in the interleaved portion, is: '271. in pascuis Turanis editioribus frequens, Chasseralle, Mitelbertg. Hall. jam. sed minor quam quae in Alpibus provenit.' The second example, including French text, is within the sixth class, Hexandria, with the entry in the main text reading: '198. Uvularia. Cor. 6 – petala, campanul. Petala basi intus nectarifera fovea. Filamenta antheris breviora. | 600. U. amplexifolia – H. 1237 – S. I. 196 – G. n. 771 –'. Facing this, in the interleaved portion, is: '600. Primus reperit Gagnebin, au fond de la Combe Biosse, versus Mont. Chasseral, à la Champ d'Abèl, aux Combes de Valanvron, et au Pouilleret dans les abîmes. Hall.' There are hundeds of other interleaved observations, such as 'ubique colitur in hortis, passim ex muris antiquis', 'in pascuis Turanis frequens insolita magnitudine et pulchretudine luxuriat in m. Chasseral.' and 'Biennae ad lacuni inter Passquart et Thielam.' [Attributes: Hard Cover]

         Observations made on a Tour from Bengal to Persia, in the Years 1786-7.

      London: T. Cadell., 1790. With a Short Account of the Remains of the Celebrated Palace of Persepolis; and other Interesting Events. Octavo (229 x 140 mm). Uncut in original blue paper boards, rebacked to style at an early date. "Wm Francklin's" added in a contemporary hand to title. Marked overall, extremities worn, fore-edge tears to sigs. K3 and N1, the first touching one letter, the second more extensive but all text intact, short nick to fore edge of K5, sigs. N7-8 charred along bottom edges, small hole to U3 costing a couple of letters either side, the sense still clear, quire X slightly spotted. A very good copy. First London edition of the fullest account of Persian customs then published, "an important book" (Ghani), containing "much valuable and interesting information" (Lowndes). Francklin (1763-1839), the son of classical scholar and dramatist Thomas Francklin, "was admitted as a cadet in the service of the East India Company in 1782 and appointed ensign of the 19th regiment of Bengal native infantry on 31 January 1783" (ODNB), rising to lieutenant-colonel by 1814, during which time he had forged a considerable reputation as an oriental scholar. In 1786 he obtained leave to travel to Persia with the aim of "improving himself in the knowledge of the Persian language, as well as to gain information of the history and manners of the nation" (author's preface), and spent eight months as the guest of a Persian family in Shiraz. Ghani notes that "Francklin's book was read by Byron … [and that it is] also important because of the retelling of comments the author had heard about Karim Khan Zand [who ruled Iran 1751–1779] … [he also] saw a full cycle of Ta'zie during his stay in Shiraz". On the outward journey he also visited Muscat, where had an audience with Khalfan, the agent of the Imam of Muscat. The Observations was his first book, and was originally published at Calcutta in 1798; that edition is now practically unobtainable, with only the Brooke-Hitching copy traced in commerce.

An unpretentious collection of the full five volume set of Levaillant's African travels. François Levaillant (later known as Le Vaillant, meaning 'The Valiant') was a French explorer, naturalist, zoological collector, and ornithologist. He described many new species of birds found in Africa and had a number of birds named after him. He was sent via the Dutch East India Company to Cape Province of South Africa in 1780 where he collected numerous specimens until July 1784 when he returned to Holland. In all he made three journeys to Africa, one around Cape Town (April to August 1781), one eastwards from the Cape (1781-82) and the last north of the Orange River into Great Namaqualand (1783-84). An illustrative map of his travels was published around 1790 for King Louis XVI with the cartographic elements of the map made by Perrier and the insets of animals and landscapes by Van Leen. The birds were by Reinold. Sixty two pictures of fauna and flora appeared on the map. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
