        Traité des maladies des voies urinaires.

      Paris, L'auteur, imprimerie de Rochette, 1791, Croullebois, Méguignon, 1792. ____ Première édition. François Chopart, professeur à l'Ecole Pratique de Chirurgie, est avec son ami Desault, le fondateur de la chirurgie des voies urinaires. Le premier tome est divisé en deux parties : Première partie : Des fonctions des voies urinaires. Deuxième partie: Des maladies des reins et des uretères. Le second volume porte comme sous-titre : Des maladies de la vessie. Au verso, on lit cette dédicace imprimée "A mon ami Desault, chirurgien..." La rédaction de l'ouvrage appartient à Chopart, mais on y trouve de nombreuses références à Desault. "Chopart and Desault were the founders of urological surgery, both emphasizing the importance of considering the urinary tract as a whole. They were close friends and were both able clinicians, surgeons and teachers. Desault was a brillant lecturer who wrote little while Chopart, a poor speaker, published an outstanding textbook on urology". Garrison-Morton 4165.01. Bon exemplaire. *-------*. 2 volumes in-8. [198 x 121 mm] Collation : (4), 112, (2), 256 pp. / (4), 668 pp. Basane marbrée, dos orné, tranches rouges. (Reliure de l'époque.).

        VISITS FROM THE WORLD OF SPIRITS; OR, INTERESTING ANECDOTES OF THE DEAD

      Printed for the proprietor, London 1791 - 172 x 103 mm. (6 3/4 x 4"). 1 p.l., xx, [25]-302 [i.e. 314] pp. Contemporary (publisher's?) tan paper boards backed with slightly later sheep. Upper joint a touch rubbed, hinges partially split (but the binding fully intact) , boards and edges a little scuffed, text block slightly browned due to quality of paper, occasional mild foxing, but still a very clean and fresh copy. This scarce work compiles a range of "genuine" anecdotes pertaining to spirits and ghostly visitations. According to the title, "apparitions, dreams, ghosts, spectres, and visions" are all treated here, both those "recoded in several Ages of the World; together with some originals." The "historic" accounts reference figures like Robert the Bruce, Edward, Duke of York, and Izaak Walton, but the majority of the narratives are second-hand accounts from ordinary people. Several of the more interesting chapters have to do with what one ought to do (and ought not to do) when encountering a spririt, what we ought to fear, and the nature of apparitions that appear in dreams.

        The Life of Samuel Johnson, LL.D. Comprehending an account of his studies and numerous works, in chronological order; a series of his epistolary correspondence and conversation with many eminent persons; and various original pieces of his composition, never before published. The whole exhibiting a view of literature and literary men in Great-Britain, for near half a century, during which he flourished. In two volumes.

      - London: Printed by Henry Baldwin, For Charles Dilly, in the Poultry, 1791. 2 vols., 4to., [i-iii], iv-xii, (16, table of contents), [1]-516; (2), [1]-588 pp. Engraved portrait frontispiece and two engraved plates (facsimiles of Johnson's handwriting & a 'Round Robin' with facsimiles of signatures). Contemporary speckled calf, repaired at hinges (both vols.). Gilt stamped backstrip with red and black morocco title and volume labels. Printed on blue tinted paper.Binding is rubbed and cracked at joints and edges, endpaper has some minor stains, internally bright; very good copy. Bookplates of C.A. and V. Baldwin, and Arthur Annesley Esq. First edition, one of 1750 copies. Though often considered the prototypical biography, the Life of Johnson is more a pastiche of material that Boswell had been accumulating since his first meeting with Johnson in 1763. "His portrait is vivid and intimate, in his own words a 'Flemish picture' made up of trifling incidents as well as significant events, and Boswell's skill in stage managing encounters? adds greatly to the liveliness of the whole" (The Oxford Companion to English Literature, 514). Page 135, vol. I, with the second state reading "give." Mm4 and Nn1 in Volume I and E3, Oo4, Qq3, Zz1 and Eee2 in Volume II are cancels, with blank [A] 1 in vol. 2.

        Die Pflanzenthiere in Abbildungen nach der Natur mit Farben erleuchtet nebst Beschreibungen. Erster Theil. [Atlas].

      Nürnberg, Raspe, 1791. 4to (25.5 x 21.5 cm). 159 engraved and finely hand-coloured plates. Contemporary full calf. Spines with five raised bands, gilt compartments and two vellum labels with gilt titles. Gilt text "P.F.Suhm" on front board. Marbled pastedowns.l A selection of the fine plates (most probably all those published together with the first text volume) of the magnum opus of Eugenius Johann Christoph Esper (1742-1810), professor at the Königlich Preussischen Friedrichs-Alexanders Universität zu Erlangen and a noted entomologist and botanist. But this work on Cnidaria - in particular stony corals - and sponges (Porifera) is by far the most important that he wrote on his own. Using the Linnaean system he described and illustrated an immense number of corals, as well as some Bryozoa, Echinodermata, a good deal of coralline algae, and some others. Many still bear the names introduced by him. The present copy probably belonged to the Danish-Norwegian historian Peter Frederik Suhm (1728-1798), who owned a very large library. Bookplate, "Dupl" of "bibl. reg. Hafn." (i.e. a duplicate of the Royal Library in Copenhagen) on the front pastedown. A very good copy. Cat. BM(NH) p. 542; Nissen ZBI, 1315.

        Greek Title:] TEIOU MELE. Praefixo commentario quo poëtae genus traditur et bibliotheca Anacreonteia adumbratur.

      In Aedibus Palatinis [typis Bodonianis], Parma 1791 - 8vo, pp. [iv], cxviii, [2], 111, [1]. Engraved portrait medallions on title-page and following leaf. Contemporary straight-grained blue morocco, boards bordered with a gilt rule, spine divided by raised bands between gilt rules, second and third compartments gilt-lettered direct, marbled endpapers, edges gilt. Some faint spotting and toning. Joints and corners rubbed, fore-edges of boards a little faded, spine very slightly dulled. Ownership inscription of 'Harlech' to initial blank, a loosely inserted card identifying this volume as having been loaned to the National Book League by Lord Harlech for an Italian Book Exhibition (probably in 1953). A pleasant binding on a copy of Bodoni's more elegant printing of Anacreon from 1791. Bodoni often produced more than one edition of a text at the same time, experimenting with different formats and types. In 1791 he printed this edition as well as a smaller 16mo of the same text, but only this version of the two was printed entirely in capital letters. 'The editions of 1785 and 1791 are printed in capital letters, and more elegant and exquisitely finished productions cannot be conceived' (Dibdin). This copy retains relatively large margins and is only a few millimetres shorter than an uncut copy (157 x 104mm, cut down from 163 x 106mm); it is printed on thin wove paper with an armorial watermark (copies on thicker paper with a different watermark are also known).

        Icones Plantarum Syriae Rariorum, descriptionibus et observationibus illustratae.

      Parisiis, impensis auctoris, 1791-1812. 5 parts (bound in 1). 4to. pp. 22, 18, 16, 16, 16, with 50 engraved plates, of which a number by Pierre Joseph Redouté. Contemporary green wrappers. The rarest of the 3 iconographies published by Labillardière. The 5 parts were published over a period of 21 years, hence complete copies are rare. There was an interval of 18 years between parts 2 and 3. The publication was interrupted when Labillardière was invited to join the expedition that was to be sent out in search of La Pérouse. After he had published his principal works on this expedition, the 'Rélation' of 1800 and 'Novae Hollandiae plantarum specimen' of 1804 and 1805, the publication of the present work was continued. The first botanical exploration of Ottoman Syria was made by Leonard Rauwolf, and his 'Aigentliche Beschreibung der Raiss inn die Morgenländer' was published in 1582. Botanical exploration of Turkish Syria was hampered by the fact that the countries (Ottoman Syria contained the general region of present Syria, Lebanon, and parts of Jordan and Palestine) were not very secure.//Labillardière obtained the services of some of the best botanical artists of all times to illustrate his 'Icones': Redouté, Poiteau and Turpin. A number of drawings are also by Pierre Joseph Redouté's less known brother Henri Joseph Redouté. A fine uncut copy, with the library stamp on title page of Hüsnü Demiriz, Professor of Botany of the University of Istanbul.//Junk Rara, 218; MacPhail. Cat.

        Rapport sur l'instruction publique, fait au nom du comité de constitution à l'assemblée nationale

      1791 - (4), 216, 7 planches repliées Paris, Baudoin et Du Pont, 1791, in-4, (4), 216, 7 planches repliées, demi-basane à coins de l'époque, tranches cirées, gardes marbrées, Premier rapport sur l'instruction publique de l'histoire de la République française. La Constitution du 3 septembre 1791 formulait des principes généraux ambitieux au sujet de l'instruction : "il sera créé et organisé une instruction publique commune à tous les citoyens, gratuite à l'égard des parties d'enseignements indispensables pour tous les hommes [.]". Le rapport de Talleyrand-Périgord propose une mise en pratique de cette double ambition de gratuité et de transmission d'un savoir incompressible. Son projet, présenté à l'Assemblée constituante les 10, 11 et 19 septembre 1791, érige un premier squelette de la future Éducation Nationale : une organisation administrative et matérielle, et des programmes. Il affirme surtout quelques grands principes fondateurs de l'instruction publique et républicaine française : une instruction primaire universelle et gratuite, la liberté d'enseignement et la mise en place d'une administration centrale. Malheureusement pour ce premier rapport fondateur, les événements politiques se compliquant et les idées sur l'éducation évoluant rapidement, il ne fut jamais réellement discuté et donc ne connut aucune application. Il servit toutefois de premier jalon et, grâce à l'édition qui en fut faite, il fut largement diffusé. En fin de volume, les 9 tableaux, en 7 planches repliées, présentent, pour chaque niveau de l'école primaire, une arborescence des différentes matières à enseigner, leur contenu et les méthodes qu'il convient d'employer. Exemplaire frais et grand de marges de ce texte de pédagogie et de théorie éducative. Coins émoussés. Planche VI à la toute fin de l'ouvrage. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

First English edition of this important hadith collection. The work is a translation of the Persian version by Ghulam Ya. Khan of the original Arabic version of Al- Marghinani. Al-Firgani is the name of a family of Hanafi lawyers; the nisba comes from their native town Marghinan in Farhana. The author of the celebrated Hidaya , wrote a record of his studies, but it does not appear to have survived. His principal work is the legal compendium Bidayat al-mubtadi (mss. in Brockelmann), based on al Kuduri’s Muktasar and al-Shaybani’s al_Djami ‘al saghir. On this work, he himself wrote a large commentary in 8 volumes Kifayat al-muntaha. But before he had completed it, he thought it was much too diffuse and decided to write a second commentary, the celebrated Hidaya, which later writers repeatedly edited and annotated. The most important commentaries and synopses are given in the table below. For the mansuscripts and printed texts of these commentaries and synopses and of many super comentaries and glosses, see Brockelmann, II 2, 466-9, S I, 644-9; a printed edition of the Hidaya appeared in 4 vols., Cairo 1326/1908.

        Maometto, legislatore degli Arabi e fondatore dell'Impero musulmano. Poema.

      Casalmaggiore, Fratelli Bizzarri, 1791. - Large 4to. 2 vols. (6), 199, (1) pp. (4), 197, (3) pp. With two engraved frontispieces and 12 engraved plates by Paolo Araldi, vignettes to titles. Contemporary boards covered with tree-marbled paper, gilt red morocco labels. First and only edition of this rare epic version of the life of Muhammad in twelve cantos of ottava rima, complemented with a series of 12 full-page engravings depicting salient moments in the Prophet's life, and two portraits (the author, and Muhammad on horseback), all after drawings by the painter Paolo Araldi (who was a native of Casalmaggiore, the author's birth place as well as the place of printing of this book). Baccanti's introduction reveals the author's intent, perhaps implicit in the choice of heroic metre: to celebrate the deeds of a remarkable leader, a singularly gifted man capable of uniting tribes, and to reflect and indulge contemporary European taste and expectations with fantastical imaginary and romantically orientalist backdrops and costumes. - Slight chafe mark to upper cover of first volume.

Sehr seltene Schrift des bedeutenden Ottobeurer Benediktiners. - Schiegg (1752-1810) ist vor allem bekannt wegen seiner frühen Versuche mit Heißluftballons in Ottobeuren (1784, erster Ballonstart in Deutschland). Als hervorragender Astronom und Mathematiker machte er sich um die Vermessung des Ottobeurer Gebiets verdient, lehrte zeitweise als Professor in Salzburg und wurde nach der Aufhebung des Klosters nach München berufen. 1805 beauftragte ihn Max Joseph mit der Vermessung der bayerischen Provinzen in Franken. Lindner betont seinen Einfluß auf Joseph von Utzschneider und dessen mit Reichenbach und Liebherr 1804 gegründete mathematisch-mechanische Institut. Die in der vorliegenden Schrift vertretene Methode wurde in den Brauereien zu Trauchburg und Zeil tatsächlich mit großem Erfolg angewandt (freundliche Mitteilung von P. Ulrich Faust nach einem im Ottobeurer Exemplar beigebundenen Schreiben des Truchsessen zu Zeil); auch in seiner Salzburger Zeit bewirkte Schiegg "bedeutende Holzersparnisse" in den erzbischöflichen Salzsudwerken. - Mit einigen schwachen Wasserrändern, stellenweise etwas angestaubt.

Brunonis Astensis - (ca. 1040/1050-1123) Initial studies at the Benedictine monastery of S. Perpetua in Asti, where he studied humanities and prepared for the ecclesiastical life; then, he went to study the seven liberal arts at the University of Bologna. He decided to enter the monastery of Monte Cassino but during the trip, he became ill in Siena and the local bishop, Rodolfo, named him canon of the cathedral chapter. Because of his knowledge and piety, he was called to Rome, where he was advisor to four popes. Participated in a Roman synod in 1079; there, he convinced Berengarius of Tours to retract his heresy which denied the real presence of the Lord in the Holy Eucharist; the disputation between the canon and the heretic took place before Pope Gregory VII. Elected bishop of Segni in 1079 (2) by its canons; he accepted after an intervention of Pope Gregory VII. Consecrated in 1080, Campagna of Rome, by Pope Gregory VII. In 1082, returning to Segni from Rome, he was imprisoned by Adolfo di Segni; tradition says that he was miraculously freed. Returned to Rome and there he was imprisoned, together with the pope in mole Adriana (castle of Sant'Angelo). Librarian and chancellor of the Holy Roman Church in 1086. Created cardinal bishop of Segni in a consistory celebrated in 1086 (3). Participated in the papal election of 1088, celebrated in Terracina, in which Pope Urban II was elected. Subscribed papal bulls issued between 1089 and July 20, 1096. In 1095, he accompanied Pope Urban II to the Council of Clermont, in which the First Crusade was called; he went with the pontiff to Avignon Tarasco on September 11, 1095; to Avignon on September 13; to Cluny on October 25; to Clermont on November 18 (he participated in the council celebrated in that city); to Limoges, December 23 to 31; to Charroux, where he participated in the consecration of the abbatial church, on January 10, 1096; to Poitiers on January 22; to Moyenmoutier on March 10; to Tours on March 14 to 20 (he participated in the council celebrated in that city); to Poitiers from March 30 and before April 14; to Nîmes on July 12; and to St.-Gilles on July 20. Did not participate in the papal election of 1099, in which Pope Paschal II was elected. Subscribed papal bulls issued between August 30, 1100 and November 2, 1106. In 1103, he entered the Order of Saint Benedict (Benedictines) at the monastery of Monte Cassino; he was elected abbot in November 1107, keeping his episcopal see. He was sent to France as legate in 1104. In March 1105, during the Lateran Synod, he acted as a judge in a controversy. On September 8 of the same year, he was with the pope in Civita Castellana. He returned to France as legate in 1106. On November 2, 1106, he was in Parma with the pope. On June 4, 1109, Pope Paschal II went to Segni to canonize Bishop Pietro of Anagni, friend of Cardinal Bruno, and most probably, the cardinal was present at the ceremony. He opposed lay investitures of bishops and abbot, even declaring them to be heresy; he criticized Pope Paschal II for granting Emperor Heinrich the privilege of investitures during the pontiff's imprisonment by the emperor April 11, 1111 and demanded that the treaty be annulled. On March 23, 1112, during the Lateran Synod, Pope Paschal II rejected the granting of the privilege of investitures to Emperor Heinrich V; the bishop of Segni was not present at that session of the synod and he continued with his intransgent position; unhappy with the bishop's opposition, the pope asked him resign his abbey and to return to his see of Segni definitively. He participated in the Lateran synod of 1116, but never regained his earlier position in the papal curia. He wrote commentaries on thirteen books of the Holy Bible; a life of Pope St. Leo IX; and one of St. Pietro, bishop of Anagni; a treatise on the Sacraments; and
