Jahrhunderts angesehen werden... als Meisterin ihres Faches berief man sie zur "Landschaftsköchin" d. h. als Köchin für die Abgeordneten des Herzogthums Württemberg... Das Löfflersche Kochbuch entwickelte sich in den folgenden Jahrzehnten zum maßgebenden Kochbuch der süddeutschen Küche" (E. u. W. Methler S. 459 f.). - Tatsächlich erlebte das Kochbuch bis ins 20.

James Boswell [Samuel Johnson]
London: Henry G. Bohn, Covent Garden, 1791. This is an exceptional leather bound near-fine copy of the very famous two volume set of the true first state of the first edition of James Boswell's LIFE OF SAMUEL JOHNSON, published by Henry Baldwin for Charles Dilly in London in 1791, with the Joshua Reynolds 1756 portrait of Samuel Johnson serving as the fronticespiece. As far as whether this copy is the very desirable first state of the first edition of Boswell's Life of Johnson, well, first, Volume 2 displays the first-state markings -- p. 585 is numbered 587 and 586 numbered 588. And about the controversial loss of the letter "i" in the word "give" on p. 135, line 10, of Volume One, the "I" is there, which some scholars now give the earlier priority. So I am listing it as the first state of the first edition. And to cap this all off -- the two volumes are absolutely pristine -- with the binding as tight as a drum, the page-edges on both volumes gilt, and the tooling on the spine wonderfully sharp and clear. I have not seen a better copy of this book. The first edition of this book has sold for as much as $20,000. I have inserted a buy-it-now price that is a fraction of this, with any good offer accepted, based on what I paid for this book when I found it. I need to downsize my collection and while I have enjoyed having such greats, it is time to pass them on.

Francesco di Pistoia, e dello Spettacolo ivi rappresentato l'Anno 1791 in occasione della Festa di S. Iacopo Apostolo, Umiliato alla Comunità Civica di detta Città."

L'incisione raffigura l'apparato che fu realizzato in piazza S. Francesco a Pistoia, nel 1791, in occasione della festa di S. Giacomo, riutilizzando le strutture realizzate per lo spettacolo di due anni prima. La rappresentazione messa in scena era "La liberazione e il trionfo di Despina", tratta dal Ricciardetto di Niccolò Forteguerri. Molto rara "Etching and engraving, 1791 circa, inscribed in lower margin: Prospetto dell'Anfiteatro eretto nella Piazza di S.

The representation was ""The liberation and the triumph of Despina"", taken from Niccolò Forteguerri's Ricciardetto. Rare."

Paris : Gueffier jeune, 1791. In-8° relié cartonnage moderne, pièce de titre contrecollée, XII-127 pages, avec trois tableaux dépliants en couleur- - - - Exemplaire en parfait état PERFECT COPY LIKE NEW - - - Sylvain Maréchal, (1750 - 1803) écrivain, poète, pamphlétaire français, précurseur de l'anarchisme. Fils d'un marchand de vin, Pierre-Sylvain Maréchal suit des études de droit et devient avocat à Paris. A l'âge de 20 ans il publie "Bergeries", un recueil d'idylles, dont le succès lui vaut d'obtenir un emploi de sous-bibliothécaire au collège Mazarin dont il retirera une grande érudition. Admirateur de Rousseau, Voltaire, Helvétius, Diderot, il fréquente un cercle d'auteurs incroyants et développe une philosophie basée sur un socialisme agraire où les biens seraient mis en commun. Les thèmes utopistes de l'âge d'or qu'il reprend dans ses oeuvres sont parfois qualifiés "d'anarchisme utopique". Ses critiques du pouvoir absolu ("Livre échappé du déluge", 1784) et son athéisme lui font perdre son emploi. Sylvain Maréchal est alors obligé de vivre modestement de ses oeuvres littéraires. Il est condamné à quatre mois de prison pour son "Almanach des Honnêtes Gens" (1788) où il substitue aux saints, des personnages célèbres, annonçant ainsi le futur calendrier révolutionnaire. Sylvain Maréchal s'enthousiasme pour la Révolution française et défend les pauvres, tout en se montrant un adversaire de l'autoritarisme. Il ne prend pas parti dans le conflit entre les Girondins et les Jacobins et s'inquiète du tour pris par la Révolution.

PRIESTLEY, Joseph.
[n. p., n. d., but with contemporary manuscript imprint to the half-title: 'À Paris, chez Gargnery, rue Serpente No 17, 1791.']. Two works in one vol., 8vo, pp. 18, [2] contents, 197, [2] publisher's advertisement, [1]; xxii, 227, [1]; light soiling to the half-title of the first work, contemporary ownership stamps to the title pages, candle-wax to pp. 196-7 of the first work, otherwise good copies in contemporary mottled calf, corners slightly bumped; spine gilt decorated with black morocco label, spine ends worn, joints a little rubbed.I. First edition in French of Priestley's response to Edmund Burke's influential manifesto of conservatism, Reflections on the Revolution in France; one of the first of thirty-eight replies made by contemporary authors. The work was well received in revolutionary France, so much so that the National Assembly declared Priestley a citizen in 1792 (an honour he declined). His pro-civil and religious liberty ideas were not as well appreciated in England where a 'patriotic' mob ransacked his home, library and laboratory in the so-called Priestley Riots of 1791. In 1794 he moved to America where he was well regarded by men like Thomas Jefferson and Benjamin Franklin, not least for his scientific work. Crook PS 324.II. First edition in French of Paine's famous polemic, to which the author added a special preface and additional notes. Translated from the original Joseph Johnson edition, the present work conveys Paine's ideas more faithfully than subsequent English editions that were toned down by publishers fearful of prosecution by a government co … [Click Below for Full Description]

It was originally priced at Nine Shillings in Boards. With the ink signature of Robert Killby (? Yeoman of Deddingham, Oxfordshire, Will dated June 1834) First published in 1790, this second and best edition was "no mere reprint: it was a largely revised, expanded, and improved work. Impressions of the cuts are far more satisfactory, there are drastic revisions and many additions in the text, many blocks have been reworked, twelve new figures are added, and the fourteen descriptions of bats make their first appearance" (Roscoe). "Few first books have been published to such unanimous acclaim as the History of Quadrupeds . The three most influential periodicals of the day, the Critical Review, the Analytical Review and the English Review, united in awarding the Quadrupeds full length articles . Though Beilby's text was praised, . it was the woodcuts that riveted critics' attention . Designed and cut almost exclusively without bo … [Click Below for Full Description]

Europe - Faden, William. (1749 – 1836)
1791. London, W. Faden, 1791. Original hand-coloured engraving. Plate Size: 65.2 cm x 51.8 cm. Sheet Size: 71.3 cm x 56.6 cm. Original map. Very good+, actually even better condition of this stunning map. Some minor darkening to centre fold. Very slight tear to top edge near center fold. Border with longitudinal and latitudinal information. A richly detailed and very interesting political map of Europe at the end of the 18th Century. Towns, cities, rivers and mountains are all depicted. Beautiful contemporary colouring, with a decorative title cartouche with Classical allusions to science, navigation and war. Triple scale beneath cartouche. The Europe depicted is a continent undergoing much upheaval with a greater wave of turmoil about to break across the region. A much-reduced Kingdom of Poland is about to be partitioned out of existence for a second and third time in 1793 and 1795 by the territorially avaricious Austrians, Prussians and Russians. Sweden still controls Finland, which it will have to cede to the ascendant Russian Empire at the beginning of the 19th Century. The aged Holy Roman Empire is still in place, but its days too are numbered. France, just two years after the violent political turmoil of its Revolution produces its first written constitution in 1791 and National Assembly arrested Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette. Its borders are erroneously depicted as extending across the north of Italy (under Napoleon, this error would prove to be prophetic). The Turk - 'the Sick Man of Europe' in the 19th Century - is still in apparent rude health at the dus … [Click Below for Full Description]
