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." (ADB).- Ignaz Assmayr gehörte zum engeren Freundeskreis Franz Schuberts und war 1854 Prüfer Anton Bruckners an der Orgel.- Mit einem lithographierten Porträt des Komponisten von Josef Kriehuber.- Anfangs gering braunfleckig, sonst sauber und wohlerhalten. Unbeschnittenes Exemplar im Verlagseinband (etwas fleckig und berieben). # First edition of the full score.- With a lithographed portrait of the composer by Josef Kriehuber, otherwise completely engraved.- Ignaz Assmayer (11 February 1790 - 31 August 1862) was an Austrian composer of liturgical music.

Assmayer was a friend of Franz Schubert.- Nice copy in the original publisher's cover. [Attributes: First Edition]

        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]

        Proceedings of the Association for promoting the discovery of the Interior Parts of Africa

      1790 - First edition. Large folding engraved map. 4to. Contemporary tree calf, the back a little worn, with a new morocco label. xi, 236pp. London, MacRae, This work was issued anonymously, ?by a member of the Committee? but was in fact written by the M.P. Henry Beaufoy as is attested by the ms. presentation inscription on the half-title which reads: ?The gift of Henry Beaufoy the author of the Proceedings &c? Founded in 1788, the Association had as its object ?Promoting the Discovery of the Inland Districts of Africa?, and its activities mark the beginnings of the systematic exploration of the continent. It also hoped to foster British trade and political prestige and influence. It was later to merge with the newly formed Royal Geographical Society. The first concern of the African Association was to locate the source and direction of flow of the River Niger, with expeditions originating on the North African coast. The first four expeditions were unfortunate for their leaders, Ledyard, Lucas, Hornemann and Houghton, all of whom either died en route or were murdered. However the fifth, led by Mungo Park, proved a great geographical success. This early compilation includes communications from both Ledyard and Lucas, and their geographical findings are elucidated by Rennell in a memoir, and in his splendid map.

        A Narrative of Four Journeys into the Country of the Hottentots and Caffraria

      1790 - In the years one thousand seven hundred and seventy-seven, eight and nine. Second edition. Folding map & 19 engraved plates. Recent half calf, spine gilt, plates a little offset, with black cloth slipcase. xii, 175pp. London, J. Johnson, Paterson's four expeditions to the Cape were all undertaken before he entered active military service. His interests were chiefly in natural history, especially botany, and Le Vaillant regarded his work highly. Paterson later became Lieutenant-Governor of New South Wales. His work may well have been the model for the two Australian ?First Fleet? narratives by Phillip and White which were both published in 1790. Coloured and uncoloured copies of these two works were also issued, the coloured with their plates being printed on laid rather than the wove paper used for the ordinary edition, as with Paterson. Coloured copies of this work are very uncommon. Mendelssohn II, p143. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

[FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Liste de 38 pièces (15 pièces jouées au Théâtre-Français et 23 à la Comédie-Italienne), rédigée sans doute par un secrétaire du Marquis. Annotations, ratures, biffures et corrections de la main du Marquis de Sade. Cette liste correspond à des pièces de théâtre jouées de 1783 à 1785 au Théâtre français (actuel Théâtre de l'Odéon) et au Théâtre italien (connu de nos jours sous le nom d'Opéra-Comique ou Salle Favart). Le Marquis avait pour habitude de se faire envoyer chaque année l'Almanach des spectacles afin de se tenir informé des actualités de la scène parisienne. Ainsi dans une lettre de décembre 1784 à sa femme Renée-Pélagie, il demande : « Liste d'objets dont j'ai besoin. [...] Deux almanachs [...] des spectacles. Les comédies ou tragédies nouvelles de l'année, de l'un et l'autre spectacles. J'en ai d'autant plus besoin cette année, que j'ai prodigieusement travaillé dans l'un et l'autre genre et que je ne puis me passer de ce qui paraît, pour m'instruire et vérifier. ». Toutes les pièces listées dans cet inventaire apparaissent dans les almanachs théâtraux reproduits par Sylvie Dangeville dans son ouvrage Le Théâtre change et représente (Honoré Champion, Paris, 1999). Soucieux de garder un lien avec le monde extérieur, le Marquis commande énormément d'ouvrages, notamment les brochures des pièces théâtrales fraîchement parues. Ainsi en 1775, dans une lettre à la Veuve Duchesne, célèbre libraire-éditrice parisienne, il demande : « Pour l'intelligence du billet ci-joint, Madame Duchesne est priée de jeter les yeux sur l'Almanach des Spectacles, article pièces nouvelles, et en conséquence elle voudra bien remettre au présent porteur tout ce qui [a] été imprimé à l'un ou l'autre spectacle, savoir du Théâtre français depuis l'Hôtellerie ou le faux ami et du Théâtre italien depuis l'Amitié au village, l'un et l'autre inclusivement, si elles sont imprimées ou exclusivement si elles ne le sont pas, jusqu'à l'époque de la clôture des spectacles. Le porteur n'a qu'un louis ; si les pièces montaient à une somme plus forte, Madame Duchesne enverrait d'abord pour cette somme et ferait dire celle qu'il faudrait envoyer le lendemain pour avoir le total. ». Le « billet » dont il est question en début de missive est très vraisemblablement la liste que nous proposons ; les deux titres auxquels fait référence le Marquis y apparaissent. Rare et précieuse liste répertoriant les ouvrages lus par le Marquis au commencement de son incarcération à La Bastille, point de départ de sa production littéraire prolifique.

        Histoire de la mouche commune de nos appartements. Par l'auteur des nouvelles découvertes dans le règne végétal.

      Nuremberg, G. N. Raspe 1790 - With engr. head-piece, and 4 engr. handcolored plates by Johann Christoph Keller after Gleichen's drawings. 34 pp. Folio. Contemp. plain wrappers, uncut (somewhat rubbed, spine defective). Nuremberg, G. N. Raspe, 1790. Gleichen-Russworm's (1717-1783) work on the common house fly, "Geschichte der gemeinen Stubenfliege" (1764), here in its French translation which was first published in 1766. Both the German and French editions were reprinted in 1790. In 1760 Gleichen-Russworm befriended Martin Ledermüller who was working on his "Gemüths- und Augenergötzung". This led him to concentrate on microscopy; with the most modern magnifying instruments at his disposal, surpassing those used by Ledermüller, Gleichen was able to make amazingly detailed drawings of all aspects of the development of the fly, and of even the minutest of its body parts. They were engraved and colored by the Nuremberg artist Johann Christoph Keller (1737-1795), who furnished the illustrations for a number of works on natural history. - DSB V, 424f.; Nissen, ZBI, 1592.
