      1790. AESOP. Faulas de Isop Filosof Moral preclarissim, y de altres famosos autors. Corregidas de nou, e historiadas ab major claredat. [8], 344, [8] pp. Illustrated with woodcut title-page and 199 in-text woodcuts plus numerous woodcut tailpieces and additional ornaments. 8vo., 147 x 100 mm, bound in contemporary Spanish limp vellum housed in a new burnt sienna cloth folding box with white printed label. Gerona: Per Francisco Bro, [ca. 1790]. |~||~||~||~| First Edition to be illustrated with this wonderful series of woodcuts by an unknown Catalan artist. Many of the cuts are clearly based on earlier models going back to the fifteenth century, however the artist of these cuts has imbued them with his own sense of whimsy. The book itself is undated, but the Biblioteca de Catalunya assigns it a date of 1790. This copy is preserved in particularly unsophisticated condition. A rare book, with OCLC listing only 4 copies in America, of which two are imperfect, and no copies at auction in ABPC. Palau y Dulcet, V, 81976 (note). Aguiló y Fuster, no. 2165.

There, he spent five years "studying Ottoman civilization and collecting Turkish mathematical instruments as well as a great number of Arabic books and manuscripts. The work contains much information on Turkish letters, and includes a list of the books from the Seraglio library which he took to Venice on his return" (Atabey). - Binding slightly rubbed; interior cound and clean.

        Almanach des Françoises célèbres par leurs vertus, leurs talens ou leur beauté Dédié aux Dames Citoyennes

      Paris: 1790. 12mo (131 X 78 mm). [1 leaf] (title), [12], 284 pp. 6-leaf calendar, text printed on blue paper. Engraved frontispiece and additional allegorical engraved title, woodcut headpiece. Blue gilt-panelled morocco, by Riviere & Son for Bumpus of Oxford St., London; matching two-part pull-off morocco case. Provenance: contemporary marginal note to the entry for Anne of Brittany (p. 100), cropped; Sir David Lionel Goldsmid-Stern-Salomons (1851-1925), armorial bookplate; Carlo de Poortere, bookplate.*** An unusual ?"almanac?" on and for women, retaining from that genre only the calendar and the conceit of a monthly structure. The main part of the text contains over 300 short biographies of historical as well as living women, mostly but not exclusively French, distinguished by their virtue, intelligence or courage, and less so by their beauty (as explained in the editor?'s preface, signed S.D.M.). Divided into 11 sections, with half-titles, for January through November, and listed in no discernible order, the ladies selected include queens and princesses, royal mistresses, authors and poets, and heroines. Ranging from Agrippina to Camargo, a recently deceased dancer from the Opéra, the list includes lower class women such as the tragic Marie Millet, a ?"French Lucretia?" who lived in the reign of Henri III, who was raped by a captain, who shared her with his troops; she killed him before being herself killed by the enraged soldiers, who in turn would die in the peasant uprising that she inspired. Writers include Louise Labé, the Comtesse de La Suze, Mme, de Genlis and Mme. de Beauharnais, whose prefatory ?"Épitre aux hommes?" concludes with a daring description of Creation in which man was the stalk, created in haste, and woman the flower, saved by God for last and to which he devoted special care. The descriptions are lively and sometimes sarcastic. For example, Marie-Theresa of Austria, wife of Louis XIV, the first entry, is praised as a woman of great virtue and an enemy of intrigue who never meddled in politics; this description is followed by a long list of her husband?'s mistresses, ?"the royal recompense for so many virtues.?" The last and most unusual part of the almanac appears under the month of December. The inspiration for its publication was an event that took place on September 7, 1789, depicted in the frontispiece: on that day a delegation of 21 women, wives and daughters of artists, brought their gold jewels and silver to the Assemblée nationale and donated them to the Patrie to be melted down and used toward the public debt, for the ?"Regeneration of the Nation.?" These ladies, listed on p. 237, were widely emulated, and this section contains not only a list of their gifts but a chart listing 45 other women who brought in their silver and jewelry during the next three weeks, up to September 28th (the date when the list was no doubt compiled). All the entries include a detailed list of their contributions, including their weights in marcs, onces, deniers and grains. A rare book, in perfect condition. OCLC lists 3 copies (BnF, Erfurt, and Wurttembergische Landesbibliothek). Grand-Carteret 960.

        The History of New Holland, from its First Discovery in 1616, to the Present Time. And a discourse on banishment by the Right Honourable Lord Aukland. Illustrated with a chart of New Holland, and a plan of Botany Bay

      John Stockdale, London 1790 - Quarto, paginated [lxxix] - clxxv; folding map (laid down with small tear to inner margin repaired); later black half roan, bookplate of Henry White. An essential book for First Fleet collectors. An essential First Fleet book, widely considered the best guide to the establishment of a penal colony in New South Wales: 'an extremely interesting work and an essential inclusion in all comprehensive collections''(Davidson).Stockdale initially published this book in 1787, coinciding with the departure of the First Fleet for New South Wales. It appeased significant public curiosity about conditions in the unknown land, compiling information from previously published sources including Hawkesworth's edition of the first voyage of Captain James Cook. The History of New Holland was included in the second quarto edition of The Voyage of Governor Arthur Phillip to Botany Bay, with new title page dated 1790 and an impressive hand-coloured chart of the continent.The work was published as a canny attempt to take advantage of a public eager for information on the new colonial venture and for details of Botany Bay itself, which is here described at length. Although special mention is made of the works of Dampier and Parkinson (who was held to be particularly helpful regarding conditions on the east coast of New Holland), it is Captain Cook's discoveries that comprise the main source of information, here presented in the context of actual settlement. In fact, 'the greater part of the book is devoted to Cook's discoveries'(Holmes).The Discourse on Banishment comprising pages clxx-clxxv of this edition was written by William Eden, which has led to the traditional misattribution of the whole book as his work.

        Agricultura General que trata de la alabanza del campo y sus particularidades: crianza de animales, propiedades de las plantas que en ella se contienen, y virtudes provechosas a la salud humana.

      Don Joseph Urrutia, Madrid 1790 - 4 hojas incluso portada, 494 páginas, 5 hojas. Impresión a dos columnas. Correcta edición de esta estimada y clásica obra de agricultura, uno de los tratados sobre el tema más importante del Renacimiento y el primero publicado en castellano. A Alonso de Herrera se le podría consider como el tratadista de agronomía del Renacimiento español. La permanencia e influencia de esta obra, lo pruba sus veintiocho ediciones entre los años 1513 y 1819, debe atribuirse a su pureza científica y práctica. Herrera dividió su obra en seis libros generales, cuyo enunciado, es el siguiente:• El primero trata de la calidad de las tierras, de la calidad de la simiente, de los tiempos de arada, siembra, escarda, cosecha y almacenamiento.• El segundo se refiere a las viñas y a los parrales, incluyendo todas las labores, hasta la elaboración del vino y del vinagre y a las características de las bodegas.• El tercero acapara todo sobre los árboles, incluyendo a los frutales.• El cuarto trata sobre las hortalizas y yerbas. Es minucioso en la práctica de las estercoladuras, sabedor de su papel en el mantenimiento de la fertilidad del suelo.• El quinto está dedicado al ganado y a las aves, donde sorprende la amplitud dedicada a las enfermedades y sus remedios. Notable es su conocimiento sobre el manejo de las abejas, a las que llama afrenta de los holgazanes.• El sexto es una recapitulación de toda la obra y establece un calendario para las actividades agrícolas.A partir de la pp. 357 encontramos: "Los Discursos del Pan y Vino, reducido a Sumario", de Diego Gutierrez de Salina., "Arte nuevo para criar Seda" de Gonzalo de las Casas. "Tratado de la cultivacion y cura de las colmenas" de Luis Mendez de Torres., "Agricultura de Jardines, primera y segunda parte".Ejemplar en buen estado de conservación, limpio.

        Vorlesung der chyrurgie. [or] Scripta Chyruriæ.

      Freiburg im Breisgau: 1790 - manuscript in brown ink on paper, in German, with sidenotes in Latin, latterly these in German instead, in a fairly spidery but not illegible hand, pp. i, vii-xvi, 362 [recte 363, or rather 369, with 3 unpaginated leaves between pp 158 and 159], 4to, original marbled boards, loss of surface on spine including to the paper lettering pieces, and to a small area of the upper cover, upper joint split at head, good A complete course of lectures on surgery from Mederer’s course at the University of Freiburg. Mederer (1739-1805), a native of Vienna, came from a medical family. He began his career as a military surgeon. In 1773 he was appointed professor of surgery and obstetrics at Freiburg (then part of Austria). He caused a storm by suggesting that the professions of surgeon and physician be equated. In 1795 he resumed military service, as the chief surgical officer of all Austrian armies.The student who wrote out these notes (or at any rate owned them) was one B.J. Pfankuch. The alternative title as above is in an ornate script before the main text begins, and is also the title on the spine label. The preliminary section would appear to be incomplete from the pagination, but there is no evidence of removed leaves.

        Narrations d'Omaï, insulaire de la mer du sud, ami et compagnon de voyage du Capitaine Cook. Ouvrage traduit de l'O-taïtien, par M. K***, & publié par le Capitaine L.A.B

      Rouen: chez de Boucher, 1790. Four volumes, octavo, portrait and view combined as engraved frontispiece a little clipped ("Omaï amené en Angletere par le Capitaine Furneaux"); an excellent set in contemporary quarter calf, flat spine a little worn, banded in gilt, double labels. Omai's 'supreme literary tribute'. A fine copy of Omai's fictional autobiography. This rare romantic account of the Tahitian islander brought back to England by Cook is, with Elliott's Hildebrand Bowman, one of the two key imaginary voyages which relate specifically to Cook's voyages.Despite Cook's initial objections, Omai was taken on board Furneaux's Adventure, which returned to Portsmouth in July 1774. Given into the custody of Banks and Solander, Omai was feted and adored by the English public, his success culminating in the traditional sign of British approval, a long-running pantomime called Omai: or a Trip Round the World staged by Loutherbourg and Shield.Baston's long novel purports to be the autobiography of Omai translated from the Tahitian (it includes a four-page glossary of difficult Tahitian terms). Seen by Tarlton and McCormick as Omai's 'supreme literary tribute', the fantasy borrows heavily from the utopian imaginary voyage tradition by depicting Omai as the 'saviour of his people, a leader who on returning from England purges his society of all its evils while he introduces only the benefits of European civilization' (Auckland City Art Gallery, The Two Worlds of Omai, 1977, p. 14).With passages on Cook and a lengthy section on Christianity, Baston's work could not be further removed from the other major French contribution of his compatriot Diderot, whose writings on Aotourou, the Tahitian who returned with Bougainville to France, are marked by bitter regret at the European influence on the Pacific.

Mit unterschiedlich breiten Rändern rundum, ein Blatt mit restaurierter Fehlstelle innerhalb der Darstellung, insgesamt nicht ganz frisch. Von großer Seltenheit! Probedrucke vor aller Schrift mit scharf zeichnenden Plattenkanten! Literatur: Nagler II, S. 236. Gedruckt für das Industrie-Kontor, Wien.. Buchhorn war von 1790-1793 Schüler der Berliner Akademie unter D. Berger (1744-1824). Außer der Aquatintatechnik übernahm er von seinem Lehrer auch die Crayonmanier. Von 1797-1803 war er an der Chalkograph. Gesellschaft in Dessau Lehrer für Zeichnung und Kupferstich, anschließend einige Zeit als freischaffender Künstler tätig. 1806 kehrte er nach Berlin zurück und arbeitete mit der Akademie zusammen, die ihn 1811 als ordentliches Mitglied aufnahm und 1814 als Dozent für Zeichnen und Kupferstich berief. Ebenfalls 1814 gründete er mit einigen Kollegen den Berlinischen Künstler-Verein. Nach dem Tod seines Lehrers D. Berger betraute man ihn 1824 mit der Leitung der Akademischen Kupferstecherschule. Zu Anfang seiner künstlerischen Laufbahn war Buchhorn in erster Linie mit Reproduktionsgraphik beschäftigt. Unter dem Einfluß von F. Krüger (1797-1857) und J.G. Schadow (1764-1850) fand er aber bald seinen eigenen Stil und arbeitete zunehmend "nach der Natur". Neben Schadow wurde er zu einem der bedeutenderen Zeichner in Berlin.

        The Works of the English Poets with Prefaces, biographical and critical, by Samuel Johnson

      London: J Buckland, J Rivington and sons, T Payne and Son, L Davis, S White et al, 1790 A fair set of the 2nd issue of Johnson's collected edition of english poets - published in 75 volumes with 32 (of 34) black and white plates . This edition updates the first, published 1779-81, including a further 14 poets.Classed as 'fair' because the full leather bindings vary in condition, and the 2 contents listing/index volumes - 74 and 75 are in poor and wrecked condition respectively (74 browned and largely disbound; 75 pages torn vertically - possibly for spills). All are bound in contemporary tree calf and have an armorial bookplate of Daniel Clutterbuck Esq on the front pastedown. All the bindings lack their labels and all have wear to hinges and edges - 7 out of 74 either have a board detached or an extremely weak hinge. The contents (of volumes 1-73) are generally in very good clean condition and appear little read. There is some offsetting from the plates to text in Vols I-VI (which contain lives of the poets); the portrait of Denham in Vol I has a repaired tear; and there is occasional marking or spotting. Please enquire if you would like to see more images, discuss the condition in more detail. A scarce work.
