        The Life of Samuel Johnson,

      London: by Henry Baldwin for Charles Dilly,, 1791. Comprehending an Account of His Studies and Numerous Works, in Chronological OrderÂ… The Whole Exhibiting a View of Literature and Literary Men in Great Britain for Near a Century During Which He Flourished. In Two Volumes. 2 volumes, quarto (270 × 212 mm). Contemporary full tree calf, spines gilt in compartments with two coloured morocco labels to each, sides bordered with a gilt roll, red speckled edges. Portrait frontispiece engraved by James Heath after Sir Joshua Reynolds, 2 engraved facsimile plates by H. Shepherd. Neat 19th-century rebacking to style, slight rubbing to extremities and a few scratches to boards, edges a little darkened, some very few spots to occasional leaves and mild offsetting at the endpapers, faint residue of removed bookplates to both volumes; still a very good copy, sound and presentable. First edition, first state, of the most famous biography in any language. The immense task of compiling the thousands of notes Boswell had recorded on "the great man's talk, habits and opinions" was begun after Johnson's death in 1784. Made up of trifling incidents as well as the significant events in Johnson's life, the work remains a masterpiece of portraiture. "Homer is not more decidedly the first of heroic poets, Shakespeare is not more decidedly the first of dramatists, Demosthenes is not more decidedly the first of orators, than Boswell is the first of biographers" (Macaulay). Boswell's reputation was further enhanced by the discovery in the early part of the 20th century of the Boswell Papers, which were stored in the Malahide Castle of Ireland for generations. What resulted from this discovery was the revelation of Boswell as an extraordinary personality in his own right; a far more complex, eccentric genius than the mere recorder of Johnson's conversations. This copy has p. 135, vol. 1, in the uncorrected first state, reading "gve". Some copies were corrected in the press to "give", and 1,750 copies in either state were available on publication day, 16 May 1791 (800 were sold in the first two weeks).

        Account of Some Discoveries made by Mr. Galvani, of Bologna; with Experiments and Observations on Them in Two Letters From Mr. Alexander Volta, F. R. S. Professor of Natural Philosophy in the University of Pavia to Mr. Tiberius Cavallo, F. R. S., London: Royal Society, 1793

      FIRST EDITION OF VOLTA'S ACCOUNT AND CORRECT INTERPRETATION OF GALVANI'S 1791 EXPERIMENTS ON ANIMAL ELECTRICITY. At the end of the 18th century, Volta was the acknowledged authority on electrical matters. His conclusions regarding Galvani's experiments the form of two 1793 letters written by Alessandro Volta to Tiberius Cavallo, then published in that same year in the Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society. The letters were extracted at some point and are housed in early paper wraps. Wheeler Gift Catalogue 2493. In 1791 Luigi Galvani published his now famous study of the electrical excitation of disembodied frog legs. Galvani argued that the jerking of a leg upon completing a circuit through the crural nerve and the leg muscle was the direct result of the discharge of a 'nerveo-electrical fluid' previously accumulated in the muscle (which he supposed acted something like a Leyden jar). When Alesandro Volta first learned of Galvani's experiments he dismissed them as "unbelievable" and "miraculous". When Volta first repeated Galvani's experiments at the University of Pavia, he obtained the same results. "[He] then replicated many of Galvani's experiments, concluding that Galvani was a hero worthy of praise for his scientific acumen and conclusions. In 1792 he called his experiments 'great' and 'brilliant'. Still, Volta remained unconvinced by one this: Galvani's explanation of why the frog leg jerked. " [Volta] began to wonder whether Galvani was correct in his interpretations. The more Volta thought about it, the more he became convinced that elettricità metallica (electricity from two different metals) could explain practically all of Galvani's findings" (Finger, Minds behind the Brain, 113). By 1793 and in the two letters offered here, Volta notes that since applying the bimetallic probes to the nerves leading to the muscles, only, would also cause a contraction, the "Leyden jar" model proposed by Galvani could not be true, and a long and famous controversy started. With these 1793 letters, "Volta's short period of admiration for his compatriot had come to an end. [Here Volta] now voiced the opinion that Galvani's experiments did not prove that elettricità animale (intrinsic animal electricity) really existed. Electricity from the torpedo and other specialized fish was one thing. But electricity generated by frogs and mammals? This was unproved and probably nonsense. As far as he was concerned, Galvani and Aldini were only able to show that electricity can be a very powerful stimulus for nerves and muscles. They did not prove that muscles contract under natural conditions because of electricity intrinsic to the body" (Finger, Minds Behind the Brain, 113-114). "In the course of the [letters], [Volta] distinctly states that whilst he agrees with Galvani in considering that the convulsions of the frog, obtained with homogeneous conductors, are due to a proper animal electricity, the more powerful effects occasioned by the contact of unlike metals are caused by 'common electricity' developed at the junction, and having the nature, not of a discharge, but of a continued stream. He repeats and modifies Galvani's experiments on animals, cold and warm-blooded, and makes interesting observations on the excitement of the nerves of taste and sight by the contact of unlike metals" (Forbes, A Review of the Progress, 165). In writing of his thoughts to Cavallo, Volta noted that 'nerves accommodate in a certain manner and become unexcitable in the presence of a continuous electric stimulus'. It is clear from this statement just how close to grasping, "at least on a phenomenological level, the fundamental properties of nerve excitability as [it would later be clarified] by modern neurophysiology" (Piccolino, Shocking Frogs, 241). Going further, Volta proposes to Cavallo a hypothesis decidedly different than Galvani's - and one which was correct. Volta argues "that external electricity was generated by the contact between two kinds of metal. He claimed that the frog muscle worked only as a detector of the small differences in external electrical potential external; a kind of foil electroscope, so to say. In this way, the conclusion of his letters lie in opposition to his thoughts at the outset of the first letter. Now Volta "expresses a grave doubt whether there be any vital electricity in the matter" (Forbes). As said, "Volta was correct in pointing out that many of Galvani's preparations were flawed. Galvani, who hated controversy, understood what Volta was saying about experimental artifacts and did not deny that some of his findings could have resulted from his use of different metals. [In later experiments] he therefore set forth to demonstrate the existence of animal electricity without using different metals" (Finger, 114). The letters are of import for many obvious reasons, not least of which is that the controversy between Galvani and Volta "induced the two scientists to develop new facts and new experimental evidence in support of their own theses. It was indeed a great scientific controversy that deserves close analysis… especially for its scientific and epistemological features" (Piccolino). CONDITION & DETAILS: London: Royal Society, 1793. Extract in plain wrappers from Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society, Vol. 83, pp. 10-44 (1793). Quarto. (11.5 x 8.75 inches; 288 x 219mm). Wraps with light edgewear.

All plates are suberbly drawn and engraved, many by De Sève, Marechal, Redouté and other famous artists of the period. 'Bruguière is chiefly remembered for his writings on invertebrates in the 'Encyclopédie Méthodique'; and his excellent work on lower animals earned him a high reputation in his day... Among the larger French collections in private hands was that of the eminent botanist Louis Claude Marie Richard, which was advertised for sale in 1819. If the advertisement is to be believed it must have been very fine indeed; for it included the valuable Hwass collection and 167 paintings of shells executed by J. Barraband, many of them being the originals from which the illustrations of the 'Encyclopédie Méthodique' were engraved' (Dance pp. 63 & 98). About 20 plates have waterstaining.//Nissen ZBI, 4621.

        Korte aanmerkingen over het Oude & Nieuwe Testament voor ongeleerden. [with] De Apokryfe boeken.

      Amsteldam: Martinus de Bruijn 8vo (22.7 cm, 8.9"). 9 vols. O.T.: I: [4], 388 pp. II: [4], 396 pp. III: [8], [429]–1011, [1] pp. IV: [4], 624 pp. V: [2], 582 pp. VI: [4], 442, [2], [443]–656, iv pp. Apocr.: [4], 456, [4], 342 pp. N.T.: I: [4], 134, [2], 135–187, [3], 189–282, [2], [283]–514 pp. II: viii, 489, [1] pp.. 1791–98 Nine-volume set of Biblical commentary intended for laypeople rather than theologians, incorporating extensive quotations from both Testaments in Dutch. Van Hamelsveld, a Christian Hebraist, preacher, and professor of theology at Utrecht, suffered a period of unpopularity due to his political activism and association with the Patriot party, but following his death his reputation was rehabilitated. His translations of the Old and New Testaments from the original languages are well regarded, with Houtman taking particular note of the fluency and free nature of van Hamelsveld's Old Testament with respect to word choice and sentence structure. This is the first edition of the Old Testament commentary and the second of the New (which was first published in 1789–90). An entire volume is dedicated to the Apocrypha; in the other volumes, each section has a separate title-page. Scarce: OCLC locates only three U.S. holdings, one of which has since been deaccessioned. Contemporary half mottled calf with speckled paper–covered sides, spines gilt extra with gilt-stamped leather title and volume labels; rubbed, paper starting to peel at a few edges, some spines with unobtrusive chips or a gilt-stamped decoration rubbed away, one spine with portion of leather (rather bigger than a "chip") lost at head. Lower (closed) edges institutionally rubber-stamped, front pastedowns each with institutional bookplate. Page edges untrimmed. Waterstaining to upper inner portions throughout (a bit difficult to visualize the accident); otherwise, occasional minor spotting only. Vol. I of N.T. with back fly-leaf excised. Vol. I of O.T. with pencilled ownership inscription on front free endpaper, one leaf with short tear from outer margin not touching text, one blank intermediary leaf excised. Apocrypha with hole to one sectional title affecting one letter. => A sturdy set with a great deal of shelf appeal.

        [DOCUMENT SIGNED BY TOBIAS LEAR CONCERNING GOODS IMPORTED FOR PRESIDENT GEORGE WASHINGTON]

      Havre de Grace [Md.], 1791. [1]p. Old fold lines. Minor loss at fold; another minor loss due to ink burn. Minor soiling. Very good. In a grey folio-sized cloth folder, gilt leather label. Document signed by Tobias Lear in the capacity as Washington's personal secretary, retrieving goods from the ship Henrietta Weeks. Lear retrieved one case of "plated wares" valued at $24.42, with a ten percent duty, and signed a statement that reads: "I do swear that this entry is to the best of my knowledge & belief just & true & contains as herein specified the whole of the goods, wairs [sic] or merchandise imported on account of the President of the United States in said vessel." Lear (1762-1816) is best known for the time he spent as General Washington's personal secretary (1786-93 and 1798- 99). He formed a close relationship with Washington and his family - he was married successively to two of Washington's nieces. Upon Washington's death, Lear spent nearly two years sorting out the general's affairs. The ANB states that "controversy over his handling of the general's papers, some of which disappeared during this period, would hound Lear the rest of his life." He subsequently served as U.S. Consul to St. Domingue and the Barbary Coast.
