He is best known as the Ship's Surgeon on the HMS Victory during the Battle of Trafalgar. On the day of the battle, 21 October 1805, Victory had 821 crewmen aboard, 62 of whom would be killed and 109 wounded. Beatty was personally called upon to undertake 11 amputations, mostly legs, actions which saved many lives. Only six wounded men subsequently died. However, when Nelson was himself wounded, Beatty did not administer treatment, claiming that he believed that the Admiral was beyond treatment. Nelson had expressed the wish to be buried in his native soil so Beatty had to preserve his body for the voyage back to Britain, and decided to place it in a barrel of brandy. Beatty relates how gases from the corpse caused the barrel lid to open on 28 October, alarming the posted marine guard. On arrival at Gibraltar, the barrel had to be topped up with spirits of wine because it had fi … [Click Below for Full Description]

A naturalist, Vaillant was collecting specimens at Saldanha Bay when his ship was sunk by British warships, under the command of Capt. Johnstone. Having nothing more than his gun, ten ducats and the clothes on his back, Le Vaillant was forced to rely on the kindness of the Dutch fiscal Mr. Boers to whom this book was dedicated. With his help the author returned to the Cape and prepared for his inland expedition, which soon him via Swellenham to Mossel Bay, and then East to Algoa Bay and the Fish River. On his return journey Le Vaillant travelled via the ?Sneuw Bergen? and through the Eastern Cape crossing the Gamka, Buffalo and Touws Rivers before finally reaching Saldanha Bay after some sixteen months. The narrative provides much information on the natural history and the Dutch settlers of the interior of southern Africa and is ?characterised by the intelligent and interesting manner in which it is written, although the rapsodies on the Hottentots must have sounded strange to colonial ears?

John Sinclair
William Ceech. The Statistical Account of Scotland Drawn up from the communications of the Ministers of the Different Parishes By Sir John Sinclair 1791 The first (Old) 21 Volumes, Original leather bound. The First (Old) Statistical Account of Scotland[edit] Sir John Sinclair of Ulbster had studied German state surveys and wished to use what he called for the first time these "statistical" methods to measure the quantum of happiness that existed in the nation and find ways of improving this. In this he was a remarkable example of Enlightenmentidealism at work. He stressed the empirical ideal of that age by lauding its anxious attention to the facts and he set about completing the work left unachieved by the previous attempt mentioned above. The results are crucial to an understanding of Scotland on the eve of both the Industrial Revolution and the French Revolution. In 1790, Sir John sent structured questionnaires to over 900 parish ministers, covering the whole country. This contained 160 questions in 4 sections, namely Geography and topography Population Agricultural and Industrial production Miscellaneous questions There were follow up questions in Appendices - six new questions in 1790 and four more in 1791. The general response was excellent, though the length and quality of submissions varied greatly, as can be seen by comparing those for two East Lothian parishes: Whittingehame (19 pages with detailed tables) and Stenton (2 pages of minimal information). Since the survey was not complete, Sir John sent out Statistical Missionaries in 1796 . The project was finished b … [Click Below for Full Description]

Virgil; William Henry Melmoth
Alex. Hogg, London, 1791. Please note that this is a heavy item and will require extra postage.; Brown leather boards; a little scuffed and worn, but generally smooth; gilt decoration and titling still quite bright; light wear to lower part of spine, but binding firmly intact. Marbled boards and pastedowns. Owner's name on f.e.p., in lovely copperplate, dd June 16th, 1792. The book is undated, but the same hand has inked 1791 just below the publisher's name on the title page. The title on the spine says "Dryden's Virgil", but he is in fact merely one of the sources "carefully consulted and attended to" in Melmoth's preparation of the volume - among the others were Warton, Pitt, Spence, Warburton, etc., etc. Engraved frontis. + plates; fold-out map of the Roman world at front. Incidentally, the Directions to the Book-Binder were not followed too closely, as few of the plates were inserted as directed: some earlier hand (possibly the original owner) has carefully noted where each plate actually is, and inked in corrections. Lastly, and fascinatingly, bound in at the rear are two separate sets of closely handwritten quarto pages (about 40 in toto), once again in the most beautiful copperplate, presumably of commentary / notes on the text. ; 4to (9" x 11"); 497 + ads + list of sbscibers. pages [Attributes: Hard Cover]

SMITH, Charlotte.
Printed for T. Cadell, in the Strand. 1791. FIRST EDITION. 12mo. Half titles, final ad. leaf vol. IV. Contemp. full sprinkled calf, spines ruled in gilt, red & dark blue morocco labels. Early labels of Althorp, library of the Earls Spencer. A v.g. exceptionally well-preserved copy. ESTC T73501. Summers p.271. Smith's third novel, Celestina, was noticeably less 'gothic' than the two that preceded it, sitting more readily in the genre of 'courtship novel'. It follows the fortune of the titular character, an orphaned girl of minor aristocratic background, and her entrance into society. Much of the action takes place in continental Europe, the Pyrennean scenes providing ample opportunity for the author to showcase her exceptional talent for descriptive writing. The novel proved popular when first published, but Smith's star waned as the century closed, and it was not reprinted until late in the 20th century. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Hoboken II, 343 (first issue). RISM M4504. An opera buffa in two acts to a libretto by Lorenzo Da Ponte, Don Giovanni was first performed in Prague at the National Theatre on October 29, 1787. "Don Giovanni is governed by a single idea, Giovanni's flouting of society in pursuit of sexual pleasure, which binds together a disparate set of ambivalent or comic incidents. The libretto has been unfairly criticized; its episodic nature is a condition of the subject, in which respect it differs from Figaro and Così. Divine retribution appears like an act of God, or a different kind of life-force personified in the statue; what in previous treatments had been comic, perfunctory or merely gruesome, is raised to sublimity by Mozart's music."

Returning to France, he was imprisoned in the Bastille for pamphlets against the queen and the government but was released in September 1784. "Inspired by the English antislavery movement, Brissot founded the Society of the Friends of Blacks in February 1788. He left for the United States in May, but, when the Estates-General were convened in France, he returned and launched a newspaper, Le Patriote français (May 1789).

Bewick : Newcastle Upon Tyne 9" by 5.5" x, 483pp SUMMARY The second edition of Thomas Bewick's beautifully illustrated work on the mammals of the world. Early Edition,Illustrated,Leather Binding,Scarce Overall Condition: Very Good This book weighs 1.5 KG when packed UK Postage: £ 3.99 US Postage: £ 23.99 EU Postage: £ 18.99 European Postage: £ 19.99 Asia Postage: £ 31.99 Worldwide Postage: £ 32.99 DESCRIPTION The second edition is much improved and enlarged from the first. Thomas Bewick, 1753-1828, was an English wood engraver and ornithologist. Bewick showed, at a very early age, a talent for drawing. He had no lessons in art. At the age of 14 he was apprenticed to Ralph Beilby, an engraver in Newcastle. In 1775 he received a premium from the Royal Society for the Encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce. In 1776 he became a partner in Beilby's workshop. A General History of Quadrupeds first appeared in 1790. The Quadrupeds deals with mammals of the whole world, and is particularly thorough on some of the domestic animals. It includes bats and seals but does not include whales or dolphins. Bewick was helped by his intimate knowledge of the habits of animals acquired during his constant excursions into the country. Bewick's art is considered the pinnacle of its medium. This is likely due to his methods: Bewick, unlike his predecessors, would carve in harder woods, notably box wood, against the grain, using fine tools normally favoured by m … [Click Below for Full Description]

Ce « test de vin Hahnemann » - qui sera obligatoire pour les négociants en vin de la ville de Berlin - lui vaut une certaine notoriété. C'est en 1790, à l'occasion d'un travail de traduction de Lectures de la Matière médicale de William Cullen qu'il est amené à expérimenter sur lui-même les propriétés du quinquina. En 1791, Hahnemann est élu membre de la Churfürstlich Mayntzische Academie nützlicher Wissenschaften, à Erfurt. S'il commence à mettre en pratique ses principes d'homéopathie à partir de 1796, c'est à compter de 1800 qu'Hahnemann commença véritablement à pratiquer l'homéopathie. À partir de cette date, il garde toutes ses observations dans ses livres de cas, les journaux de malades4. À partir de 1800, Hahnemann commence à prescrire des préparations infinitésimales, n'hésitant pas à qualifier les homéopathes usant de doses pondérales de demi homéopathes. Ne rencontrant pas le succès espéré auprès de ses confrères, Hahnemann déménage à Leipzig, ville universitaire, où il entreprend de donner des cours, après avoir passé une thèse en 1811, pour accéder au statut de lecteur : c'est effectivement à Leipzig que seront formés ses … [Click Below for Full Description]

Cecire Antonio Maria
Napoli nella Stamperia Simoniana 1791. Large 8° (214x135 mm). Printed on blue paper. 360 pages. Woodcut ornament on the title-page. Woodcut decorated initials, head- and tailpieces. Fine contemporary honey calf, over pasteboards. Covers within elaborate gilt frame of neoclassical decorative elements, at each inner corner a small amphora-shaped tool. At the centre a large coat of arms of Cardinal Gregorio Antonio Maria Salviati. Spine with five small raised bands, richly gilt tooled with larger amphora-shaped tools. Title in gold on brown morocco lettering-piece. Board edges decorated with diagonal gilt fillets. Marbled pastedowns, gilt edges. Flyleaves renewed, lower corners restored. A very fine, wide-margined copy. Insignificant paper flaws to the lower margin of fol. Y1 and outer lower corner of fol. Q3, in both cases not affecting the text.Provenance: Cardinal Gregorio Antonio Maria Salviati, Duke of Giuliano (1727-1794, armorial binding). A fine copy – printed on 'carta turchina' – of this striking testament to the lively debate that had arisen in the late eighteenth-century Kingdom of the Two Sicilies concerning indulgences and the abuses of their practice. Cecire's treatise aims to offer a sort of 'guide' for preachers, parish priests, and catechists on the issue of indulgences, a topic which has consistently sparked much extensive and heated controversy throughout ecclesiastical history. Here the Franciscan author deals especially with the so-called 'Bolle della Crociata', or Crusade-Bulls, issued in the 1790s by Pope Pius VI for Ferdinand IV, King of Na … [Click Below for Full Description]
