        Handschriftlich verfasste Fiqh.

      o. J. (ev. um 1790 - Ca 144 Seiten. 4° (Format ca. 34x21 cm). Private Broschur ev. um 1900. Wohl später eingebundene arabischsprachige Rechtsschrift. In 10 Zeilen, teils in Rot und Schwarz verfasste zehnzeilige Fiqh. Der Text auf Papier mit Pallas Athene Filigran-Wasserzeichen, deshalb nehmen wir an, daß er um etwa 1790 niedergeschrieben wurde. Mit zahlreichen handschriftlichen Korrekten, die nach der Niederschrift der Fiqh ev. nach und nach dazugeschrieben wurde. - Das erste Blatt mit Eckabrissen und dadurch Textverlust der Korrekturen. Hinten ebenso Eck- aber auch Randabriss, dadurch leider leichte Textverluste des Rechtstextes. Durchgehend etwas stärker wasserrandig, durchgehend mit Randläsuren, allerdings stets ohne Textverluste der Fiqh, ev. kleinere Textverluste bei den Kommentaren. Der Einband beschabt, teils rissig und etwas ausgeblichen. - In Arabisch. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Notamento di alcuni passi ricavati dalle Memorie del Duca di Sulli, primo ministro del Re Enrico IV. detto il Grande.

      Italy, c.1790.. 8°. 170 pages. Hardcover / Decorative 19th century binding with gilt lettering on spine. 18th century, extensive manuscript - excerpt of Sully's memoirs.. Maximilien de Bethune, first Duke of Sully (13 December 1560 - 22 December 1641) was the doughty soldier, French minister, staunch Huguenot and faithful right-hand man who assisted Henry IV of France in the rule of France. Sully was not popular. He was hated by most Roman Catholics because he was a Protestant, by most Protestants because he was faithful to the king, and by all because he was a favorite, and was seen as selfish, obstinate and rude. He amassed a large personal fortune, and his jealousy of all other ministers and favorites was extravagant. Nevertheless he was an excellent man of business, inexorable in punishing malversation and dishonesty on the part of others, and opposed to the ruinous court expenditure which was the bane of almost all European monarchies in his day. He was gifted with executive ability, with confidence and resolution, with fondness for work, and above all with deep devotion to his master. He was implicitly trusted by Henry IV and proved himself the most able assistant of the king in dispelling the chaos into which the religious and civil wars had plunged France. To Sully, next to Henry IV, belongs the credit for the happy transformation in France between 1598 and 1610, by which agriculture and commerce were benefited and foreign peace and internal order were reestablished.

        VIE DU ROI LOUIS XVI

      1790 - (2), 82 pp. collation (alpha), A-E8, F. Note that alpha and F are 1 leave folded around the spine! Original grey wrappers and single thread binding. As such a good example of original state of the time. An early pamphlet, to be dated very late in 1790, as the supplement discusses the arrest of the Marquis de Favras on December 25. On Oktober 6 the king moved from Versailles to the Tuileries in the centre of Paris were he was kept more or less prisoner until his decapitation in early 1793. The pamphlet is a standard biography of the King; unusual however is the drunken state of the king referred to on p. 53 [suggesting Marie Antoinette giving him so much wine as necessary to make him sign everything she wanted] and the discussion of the quantity of Tokai taken, referred to on p. 68 and 75. Much less agressive than later pamphlets (see for instance Christies 6905/140 (dated 1793) speaking in terms of "Roi scélérat et stupide", thus being the end of the traumatic process of a nation deciding to decapitate its king. Not in Tourneux (IV 20860 is comparable, but does not carry ROI in title). Not in OCLC. In Europe 1 copy at KUN (which also shows a titlepage in NCC identical to our copy) and other copies in München (BSB) and Strassbourg (Bibliothèque Municipale). HOWEVER NONE OF THOSE IN THE ORIGINAL STATE [UNCUT AND IN WRAPPERS] OF THE COPY PRESENTED HERE. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Flora Alpina - Original Herbal / Herbarium of the late 18th/ early 19th century containing 36 original specimens of alpine flowers.

      Europe, Privately collected, c.1790-1810.. 20 x 25 cm. 39 pages with 36 full pages of tipped in specimens. Original wonderfully decorative vellum from an obviously skillful bindery with gilt floral elements and lettering. Excellent condition with only minor signs of external wear. The endpapers and pastedowns mildly stained. The interior and specimens otherwise in fantastic condition. Please ask for professional images of the whole volume.. Original Herbaria are extremely scarce and usually are not in similar aesthetically gorgeous bindings like this one. A collection of natural plants that has endured approximately 200 years in a magnificent binding usually tells more of a story than the one we have on offer here. Unfortunately this Herbarium contains not a single written word and so we are floating in interpretation and have only the gatherer/collector of the plants and the wonderful binder to thank for this beautiful masterpiece of preserved time.

        AN AUTHENTIC ACCOUNT OF THE CONVERSION AND EXPERIENCE OF A NEGRO [caption title].

      London: Printed by T. Wilkins, [nd, but ca. 1790]. - 4pp. printed on folded sheet. Very good. One of several edition of this short account of the Christian conversion of an African-American in late 18th- century New York. The anonymous author says he encountered the man when visiting a plantation. Falling into conversation with him, he discovered the man was enamored of the Bible and a practising Christian, nut more out of fear than of joy: his master, a Quaker, had taught his slaves to read but not encouraged them in religion. The narrator asks the man questions about doctrinal issues such as "the merit of works, the justification of a sinner, the power of grace, and the like," and is delighted with the "heavenly wisdom that God had put into the mind of this sweet Negro." The pamphlet ends with an exhortation to the reader, who has been more privileged that the black man, to do likewise: "Reader, this Negro was a Christian; a Bible Christian. He had not indeed the outward form of godliness, but he had the power - How is it with you?" ESTC locates five total editions, two of them American, two London, and one in Edinburgh. All are scarce; this edition with fewer than ten locations.

        Treatise on the Culture of the Vine Together with new hints on the formation of vineyards in England

      York: Printed by G. Peacock for the author, 1790. Quarto, five engraved plates (three folding), closed tear to p. 149; a most attractive copy in nineteenth-century straight grained red half morocco, label to front board, spine gilt, armorial bookplate of Vane Londonderry. "cultivating the Vine... has long been one of the first objects of my attention..." First edition: "a practical, well-written and beautifully printed manual" (Hyams).William Speechly (1735-1819) was a famous English horticulturalist, who had made his name perfecting the growing of pineapples (an eighteenth-century English craze) in England. At this point in his career Speechly was gardener at Welbeck Abbey in Nottinghamshire, the house of the third Duke of Portland, to whom he dedicated this book. Speechly describes some 50 varieties of grape, and discusses all manner of practical questions relating to vineyards, including a long discussion on hothouses. Although printed in York, it is interesting to note that the London distributors included Nicol (who published Cook's third voyage), as well as both Stockdale and Debrett who, at the time, were publishing the First Fleet journals.It has been assumed that the first edition was in fact an undated edition at London, but this seems unlikely as the London edition is an expanded work, and Speechly was based in Nottinghamshire and had connections to Yorkshire (his first gardening position had been at Castle Howard).From the library of Charles William Vane, third Marquess of Londonderry.

Erstmals beschrieben wurde es von J. Thiermayer noch im selben Jahr. Seine Beschreibung des "Gsund-Bads" wurde 1743 und 1756 mit einigen Aktualisierungen neu herausgegeben, was auf einen jahrzehntelang blühenden Badbetrieb schließen lässt. 1725 erhielt der Freiherr von Unertl die gesamte Anlage zum Geschenk. Gegen Ende des 18. Jahrhunderts muss aber das Ansehen Maria Brunns zurückgegangen sein, denn Leuthner erwarb ein recht verfallenes Anwesen. - Ohne das Kupfer mit dem Porträt des Freisinger Bischofs, dem das Werk gewidmet ist.

      Europe: Privately collected. Excellent condition with only minor signs of external wear. The endpapers and pastedowns mildly stained. The interior and specimens otherwise in fantastic condition. Please ask for professional images of the whole volume.. Europe, Privately collected, c.1790-1810. 20 x 25 cm. 39 pages with 36 full pages of tipped in specimens. Original wonderfully decorative vellum from an obviously skillful bindery with gilt floral elements and lettering. Excellent condition with only minor signs of external wear. The endpapers and pastedowns mildly stained. The interior and specimens otherwise in fantastic condition. Please ask for professional images of the whole volume. Original Herbaria are extremely scarce and usually are not in similar aesthetically gorgeous bindings like this one. A collection of natural plants that has endured approximately 200 years in a magnificent binding usually tells more of a story than the one we have on offer here. Unfortunately this Herbarium contains not a single written word and so we are floating in interpretation and have only the gatherer/collector of the plants and the wonderful binder to thank for this beautiful masterpiece of preserved time.

        The adventures of Numa Pompilius, second King of Rome. Translated from the French of M. De Florian

      Brussels, printed by B. Le Francq, book-seller. 1790. 4 vols., 12mo., engraved frontispiece in vol.I and three further engraved plates in each volume (13 plates in all), text throughout in parallel English and French, (4) + 217 + (1) and (4) + 239 + (1) and 261 + (1) and (4) + 247 + (1)pp., uniformly bound in late 18th century catspaw calf, spines fully gilt with contrasting labels, silk markers. The bindings all with wear and some insect damage, but all the volumes are fine and crisp internally. A rare Brussels printing of this history for children. (ESTC & OCLC find other complete sets only at Yale + BL + Cambridge + Augsburg Un. + B.N.France). Jean-Pierre Claris de Florian (1755-1794) was a French poet and romance writer. 'To modern readers, Florian is chiefly known as the author of petty fables well suited as reading for the young, but his contemporaries praised him also for his poetical and pastoral novels. Numa Pompilius,> which first appeared in 1786, was an undisguised imitation of Fénelon's Télemaque.> The Osborne collection at Toronto Public Library seems to have only Florian's Select fables> (1806: 1st pub. in 1792) and his William Tell> (1823 ed.), but no printing of Numa Pompilius.> Numa Pompilius (753-673 B.C.) himself was the legendary second King of Rome who succeeded Romulus in 715 B.C.

        A Treatise On Theatres

      London: Printed for the author and sold by J. & J. Taylor at the Architectural Library, 1790. First edition. Hardcover. Later three quarter half red morocco and marbled boards with matching marbled endpapers. Very good. 94 pages in text. 30 x 25 cm. Title, half title, introduction and contents list. Thirteen plates, four folding. An architectural treatise in which the author attempted to discover the principles that should govern theatre construction, taking into consideration a theatre's form, function, size, beauty and acoustics. The thirteen large and detailed plates display plans of various theatres-- from Pompeii to Covent Garden-- plus Saunders' own design for an ideal theatre; all but the last two plates are copies of those in Dumont's Salles de Spectacles (ca. 1767). Saunders is chiefly known as the architect who enlarged Lord Mansfield's residence in Highgate, and as the designer of the extension to the British Museum's Montagu House (torn down in 1851), in which the Townley marbles were housed. Saunders was also one of the founders of the British Museum. Ancient theatres depicted in the plates include Pompeii, Greek and Roman Theatres, Bacchus at Athens, Marcellus at Rome, Vincenza and Parma. At the time of this publication he had just completed two major theatres. RIBA 2908. Bookplates of Ogden Codman and architect Thomas Chawner's signature on the title, who retired in 1845 [see; COLVIN p.212]. One fold-out plate repaired with archival tape. Plates generally clean and sound, raised bands spine panels decorated in gilt motifs, modest extremity rubbing.

        Experiments and observations on different kinds of air, and other branches of natural philosophy, connected with the subject. In three volumes; being the former six volumes abridged and methodized, with many additions.

      . London, J. Johnson, 1790. Three volumes in three. 8vo. 1,480 pp. [I: li, 411 pp., 9 folded, engraved plates; II: viii, 472 pp.; III: viii, 574 pp., and a 6 pp. list of other works by Priestley]. Uniform contemporary full calf. Spines with gilt ornaments, green morocco label with gilt title, and small round, gilt-bordered red morocco label with gilt volume number.l New, improved edition by the author, of his work on gasses. The British theologist, philosophist, educator, political activist and chemist Joseph Priestley (1733-1804) is claimed to be the first to discover oxygen. He also discovered various other gasses, and accidently invented the eraser. This is more or less the "final" edition of his work on gasses. An earlier edition was published in 1774-1777, but this later edition contains newer information, carefully selected by the author. The nine large, folded plates show the scientific equipment used, and partly designed or improved by Priestley himself. Some scattered spotting, otherwise a well-preserved set.

        PROPOSITIONS DES CITOYENS DE LA COLONIE QUI ÉTOIENT RASSEMBLÉS À LÉOGANE, ET RÉPONSES DE M. LE GOUVERNEUR GÉNÉRAL.

      Port-au-Prince: De l'Imprimerie de Mozard, 1790. - 20pp. Gathered signatures. Small color pencil notation on titlepage, minor dampstain to gutter throughout, else very good. Proposals from the citizens of the colony who were gathered in Leogane, and replies from the Governor General. Following assistance from the military, supported by the governor of Saint Domingue, against the Assembly of San Marco (July 29/30) and the flight of the survivors to the mainland on the ship Le Léopard (Aug. 8), it was still necessary to dissipate, especially in the south and west of the colony, preventions in favor of the fugitives and their heretofore constitutional projects. A meeting held in Leogane with the aim of continuing the agitation was contained by the Governor's troops and the young militia of Voluntary Patriots. In the end some restricted proposals were put forward, to which Governor Peinier gave mainly benevolent replies. In the present document, the introduction by Peinier is followed by the proposals opposite the Governor's replies. A rare work, with only seven total copies in OCLC. ROQUINCOURT 4203.

        NE Coast of New Holland.

      G. Nicol,, London: 1790 - This remarkable chart of the Cape York Penninsula, North Queensland, was first published in the first edition of Bligh's account of the infamous mutiny. It was charted during Bligh's death-defying journey across 4000 miles of open seas in the Bounty's launch. Despite departing under such dire circumstances, Bligh piloted the launch to safety in Timor. "In the course of this hazardous journey Bligh took the opportunity to chart and name parts of the unknown north-east coast of New Holland as he passed along it" (Wantrup, p.128). One wonders at his continued attention to such detail, in which he charts the Cape York Penninsula. The book is entitled "A Narrative of the Mutiny on Board His Majesty's Ship Bounty' and the Subsequent Voyage of Part of the Crew, in the Ship's Boat, from Tofoa, One of the Friendly Islands, To Timor." The map is not listed in Tooley, but should be. The book references: Ferguson 71; Wantrup 61; Hill 132; Kroepelian 87. Image size 7 1/2 x 10 1/2" with large margins, 11 x 15".
