KEMPELEN, WOLFGANG von. - [THE FORERUNNER OF COMPUTERIZED SPEECH]
Wien, Degen, 1791. 8vo. Contemporary paper boards. A bit of wear to extremities and gilt title-label to spine renewed. A stamp to blank verso of title-page ("Herzoglicher Meiningischer Biblothek") and notes to front free end-paper. Very nice, clean, fresh, bright, and crisp. Printed on good paper. (20), 456 pp. + engraved frontispiece-portrait and 26 engraved plates. ¶ Scarce first edition of the work that introduced speech synthesis and presented the world's first speech synthesizer. The book is furthermore a landmark work in linguistics and philology, being also foundational in the science of speech and speech development. "Kempelen first discusses in general terms the origins of languages and then considered the mechanisms and physiology of speech generation. Finally, he describes a mechanical device that took him twenty years to build and that can produce speech generation. On the nature of language Kempelen argues that human speech and reason are connected and that they develop together over time and he rejects the theory that all languages come from a single (divine) source. He studies the function of the organs of speech and discovers that the cavities over the larynx play the most important role in acoustic articulation. His machine comprises a pressure chamber for the lungs, a vibrating reed for vocal cords, a leather tube, the shape of which helps to produce different vowel sounds, and constrictions controlled by fingers for generating consonants. For plosive sounds he includes movable lips and a hinged tongue." (Gedeon, Science and Technology in Medicine, p. 139) … [Click Below for Full Description]

Franklin, Benjamin.
Chez Buisson, libraire, rue Haute-feuille, no. 20, Paris, 1791. pp. vi, 156, [207] (pp.204-7 misnumbered 360-63). 8vo. 220 mm. In this example the last three leaves of the table of contents are photo copies. It is remarkable though that the original front wrap (made out of printers' waste) and printed spine label are present. First Edition of Franklin's famous Autobiography which preceded the English edition by two years. Querard attributes most of this French version to Dr. Jacques Gibelin (1744-1828). Ford notes that the part written by Franklin alone covers to the year 1731 with the remainder of his life translated from Wilmer's Memoirs of Franklin, with considerable alterations. Aside from Poor Richard's Almanac, the Autobiography is Franklin's best known and most important work. A classic piece of American biography,wherein Franklin tells the story of his climb, from poverty to success and influence, with the aid of thrift, frugality, industry, and wit. It is also one of the best pictures of life in Philadelphia during his youth and middle age. Franklin is wonderfully frank about people with whom he was involved and his own motives for his actions. Even today, it is a worthwhile read for anyone interested in the history and character of Colonial and Revolutionary America.

His aim was to explore the Pacific regions of North and South America, Asia and Australasia.

Louis ordered the French expedition to show the world that France could also dominate in ocean exploration. The expedition consisted of two ships - La Boussole and L'Astrolabe. They carried a total of 225 crew, officers and scientists. The ships left France in August 1785 and sailed south around Cape Horn. The voyage was expected to last four years.

PAINE, Thomas
1791 RARE 1st ed Rights of Man Thomas Paine French Revolution Edmund Burke 2v “Whatever is my right as a man is also the right of another.” ¬– Thomas Paine, Rights of Man ‘Rights of Man’ was a book by Thomas Paine consisting of articles posing that a political revolution is allowed if a government does not support or defend its own people. Edmund Burke wrote an attack on the French Revolution, and thusly, Thomas Paine wrote his own defense of the French Revolution, responding to Burke’s critical reports. This incredible rare first French edition was published in two separate parts in 1791 and 1792; however, this edition was immediately suppressed and many, if not most, of the copies were destroyed. This French edition includes the entirety of Paine’s work – later London editions were censored and edited. This edition also includes a preface that Paine wrote specifically for this French edition. It states: “Government exists to guarantee to the individual that portion of his natural rights of which unaided he could not ensure himself. These rights, with respect to which all men are equal, are liberty, property, security, and resistance to oppression.” Item number: #3882 Price: $1750 PAINE, Thomas Droits de l'homme; en réponse a l'attaque de M.

Munoz de Ugena, Manuel; Gomez Ortega, Casimiro.
Extremely rare, this is the second copy we were able to trace, of the Flora produced by Munoz de Ugena and Ortega; the book is divided in two parts, the first dealing with Spanish plants, and the second devoted to the American flora. Although not the first book of its kind produced in Spain, this is by far the rarest, and amongst the most beautifully produced ones, one would think created to match those being produced in England or France. The most interesting part for Americana, is that one of the volumes is solely dedicated to American plants; these are the plants described: Pancracio marítimo, Azucena de Lima, Lirio Tuberoso, Narciso Tazilla, Sedo Arbóreo, Datura arbórea o floripondio. Paxaritos amarillos o canarios tropeolo peregrino, Zinia de pocas flores o maravilla encarnada, Bupleuro vertical o revientabuey de monte, Solano de Buenos Ayres, Solano de fruto grande o naranjito de Quito, Teucrio Maro o Yerba fuerte. As stated above, the rarity is exceptional, there has been no copy in the market according the RareBookHub, neither is there one in any institution according to worldcat, not in the Hispanic Society and not in the Huntington Library; the only other copy is housed at the Real Academia Nacional de Medicina (Spain), according to CCPBE. Contemporary inscription on front pastedown "Los dos cuadernos 3 reales". Ortega (1741 - 1818) was a Spanish physician and botanist, the first professor of the Royal Botanical Garden of Madrid, built under the patronage of Charles III, with the aim of studying the new species of plants being identified by … [Click Below for Full Description]

AUCTION CATALOGUE: MOLS, F.)
1 p.l., 87 pp. 8vo, self-wrappers, stitched as issued. Anvers: J. Grangé, [1791]. There was an earlier François Mols sale in 1769 and I suspect the present catalogue offers material not in the earlier catalogue or, more unlikely, the unsold lots. While slight (666 lots), this catalogue is filled with really wonderful groups of book and art auction catalogues and all-too-briefly described manuscripts. Well over two-thirds of the lots are book and art auction catalogues, including many unfamiliar, famous, or rare ones. Fine crisp copy. A contemporary note on the verso of the title-page states the auction will commence with lot 1. Priced throughout in a contemporary hand. ❧ Blogie, I, col. 38.

Item #45436 "The Social Contract, originally published in 1762 as On the Social Contract; or, Principles of Political Rights (French: Du Contrat Social; ou Principes du Droit Politique) ... in which Rousseau theorized about the best way to establish a political community in the face of the problems of commercial society, which he had already identified in his Discourse on Inequality [1754]. The Social Contract helped inspire political reforms or revolutions in Europe, especially in France. The Social Contract argued against the idea that monarchs were divinely empowered to legislate. Rousseau asserts that only the people, who are sovereign, have that all-powerful right." [Wiki]. Per PMM, "'Contrat Social' remains Rouseeau's greatest work. ... a work of compelling eloquence. ...

Erste Ausgabe dieses Diariums der vorletzten Kaiserkrönung in Frankfurt am Main mit allen Anhängen und den beiden Varianten des Kupferporträts von Kurfürst und Erzbischof von Trier Clemens Wenzeslaus von Sachsen. - Lipperheide Sba 36. - Nach Joseph II. überraschendem Tod wurde Leopold II. am 30. September zum Römisch-Deutschem Kaiser gewählt und die Krönung fand am 9. Oktober 1790 in Frankfurt am Main statt. Interessant an der vorliegenden Krönung war, dass Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart - der im Gegensatz zu vielen Wiener Musikgrößen nicht eingeladen war - sich auf eigene Faust nach Frankfurt zur Krönungszeremonie auf den Weg machte. Im Gepäck hatte er zwei neue Klavierkonzerte, die "Krönungskonzerte". Doch auch die Reise nach Frankfurt brachte ihm nicht den erhofften Erfolg. Berühmtere Namen wie etwa Salieri waren gefragt, die Musik des Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart wollten nur wenige hören. Entmutigt, erschöpft und mit leeren Taschen kehrt er nach Wien zurück. Das in zwei Teile, 2 Anhänge und das "Kaiserliche Wahl- und Krönungs-Diarium. Sechster und letzter Abschnitt enthaltend die Wahlkapitulation Seiner Römisch Kaiserlichen Majestät Leopold des Zweiten" unterteilte Werk enthält eine genaueste Beschreibung der Wahlformalitäten und Krönungszeremonien mit den angeschlossenen Festlichkeiten sowie der Aufzählung der wichtigsten den Festlichkeiten beiwohn … [Click Below for Full Description]

Boswell James
by Henry Baldwin for Charles Dilly, 1791. 2 volumes. First edition, with 'give' on p. 135. With round robin plate, signatures page, portrait frontispiece. 4to, contemporary-style full rich calf, richly gilt decorated spines, red and green contrasting morocco labels gilt, key-rolls gilt at the top and bottom of the spines, gilt bands to the spines. xii, (16), 516; 588. A very nice copy indeed, the bindings in fine order, fresh and clean and with just some normal age to the text-blocks. IMPORTANT FIRST EDITION IN QUITE PLEASING AND VERY WELL PRESERVED CONDITION. Celebrated for its intimacy and vividness, Boswell's Life of Johnson "is one of the best books in the world. It is assuredly a great, very great work. 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..." (Macauley, in the Edinburgh Review, 1831). Boswell learned a great deal about the art of biography from his subject, and brought to his task boundless curiosity, persistence, and zest. Boswell had been collecting material for this work since his first interview with Johnson in 1763, and was confident that his kind of biography, "which gives not only a History of Johnson's visible progress through the world, and of his publications, but a view of his mind in his letters and conversations, is the most perfect that can be conceived, and will be more of a Life than any work that has ever yet appeared." Only 1750 copies of the first edition were printed.

Robert Jackson
London: Printed for J. Murray, 1791. First Edition. Full Leather. Very Good binding. An attractive First Edition copy. Robert Jackson was a British army physician in the late 18th century. This work advocated the use of cold affusion, or the application of cold water, for British soldiers stricken by the tropical fevers of Jamaica. The book also has the historical importance of directly aiding him in securing an appointment as surgeon to the 3rd regiment, or Buffs, when war broke out in 1793. As he was not connected with the College of Physicians of London, he was not formally eligible for the office of army physician, only securing it due to the intervention of the Duke of York. "This personal incident was the beginning of Jackson's resolute opposition to the monopoly of the College of Physicians and to the corrupt administration of the old army medical board, which ended in a new regime in 1810, and in an open career from the lowest to the highest ranks of the army medical service" (DNB X, 542). Jackson is now known as an important military reformer and historical authority on fevers, this work being an important foundation stone for both aspects of his life's work. Contemporary calf binding, with a brown morocco label and gilt rules. Rules rolled in gilt on the edges. Minor loss to the top of the spine, with the beginnings of separation to the top of the front joint. Spots and soiling to the front board. Lacking front and rear endpapers.

In 1781 he became chief magistrate at Lilienthal, a post that left him free time to devote to astronomy. With the aid of the optician J.G. Schrader he built and equipped an observatory that subsequently became world-famous for the excellence of the instruments. ‘Some were made in his own workshop; others he bought from Herschel, the latter including a reflector with a twenty-seven-foot focal length, the largest on the Continent. George III of England enabled Schröter to continue his astronomical work by buying all of his instruments, with the stipulation that they remain in Schröter’s possession until his death, when they would become the property of the University of Göttingen. Schröter was also awarded a grant to hire an assistant. K.L. Harding and, later, F.W. Bessel were among those who held the post. ‘For thirty years the observatory at Lilienthal was a center of astronomical research and was visited by fo … [Click Below for Full Description]

All the standard cancels are present, per Pottle. Regarding the "give" (versus "gve") reading, Pottle notes that the "booksellers have given this rather uninteresting 'point' more attention than it deserves." Celebrated for its intimacy and vividness, Boswell's Life of Johnson "is one of the best books in the world. It is assuredly a great, very great work. Homer is not more decidedly the first of the heroic poets, Shakespeare is not more decidedly the first of the dramatists, Demosthenes is not more decidedly the first of the orators, than Boswell is the first of biographers" (Macaulay).

PAINE, THOMAS.
London: Printed for J. S. Jordan, 1791 & 1792. Seventh and second editions, respectively, which were commonly bound together, often as issued by the publisher. This is likely an example of the latter as both these titles have corresponding stab holes. 2 vols in 1, 8vo, 19th century maroon half morocco, marbled paper boards, gilt lettering. On the verso of the half-title of the Part the Second is a portrait of Paine engraved by William Sharpe after the portrait by George Romney, cut down and laid on, with contemporary manuscript annotations. An interesting copy of Thomas Paine's famous and controversial polemic. From the library of William Augustus Miles (1753-1817), the political writer who was a British agent in France during the French Revolution. Miles was well acquainted with numerous political personages of the day, and on the verso of the half-title in the margin of Paine' portrait, he wrote "This man deserv'd to be honor'd-not revil'd-To be protected-not persecuted and if he had been educated a gentleman he would have done good." In another hand in the margin below the portrait is written "Note MS. by W. Augts Miles - Author of Letter to the Prince of Wales on his debts & other tracts." Binding rubbed; some dust-soiling, browning and creases; very good copy.

Cruikshank, Isaac:
London: H. Humphreis [sic], 1791. Handcolored etching, 14 x 21 inches. Cropped within plate borders, with no loss to image or text. Remnants of older paper pasted to verso. Color bright and fresh. Near fine. In 1789 and 1790 Nootka Sound, in the Pacific Northwest, looked to be the spur of a major conflict between then kingdoms of Britain and Spain. The inlet was an important outpost for maritime fur trading and had therefore become the focus of the centuries-old struggle for advantage in the New World. Courtesy of explorer and trader John Meares, news of Spanish indiscretions reached Britain in 1790 and intensified the growing anti-Spanish rhetoric and call for war. Meares (whose credibility was famously contested in two remarkable pamphlets by George Dixon) claimed not only that the Spanish had seized British ships, but that they had removed his settlement at Nootka and replaced it with their own. After debate in the House of Commons, it was decided that the British Navy would be mobilized. While Spain initially sought to go to war, they could not attain the essential support of France and thus required a diplomatic solution to the problem. This came in the form of the first Nootka Convention, which was signed on Oct. 28, 1790. The convention guaranteed Britain the right to have outposts on Nootka Sound and to practice whaling in waters beyond the "Ten-League Line" off the coast. The Convention eventually resulted in the seminal voyage of George Vancouver to survey the Pacific Northwest. This print is a satire on the British Tory government's handling of the crisis … [Click Below for Full Description]

Second Edition (but the first thus with Blake's six illustrations appearing opposite the TP and inserted at pages 24, 74, 94, 114 & 173). [Windle A3b]The first edition of Original Stories from Real Life appeared in 1788; a fictionalized account of Wollstonecraft's experiences as governess for the daughters of a noble family in Dublin. Repackaging the tenets of her first book (Thoughts on the Education of Daughters) in novelistic form, this work present Mrs. Mason (a thinly disguised Wollstonecraft) as she "introduces two girls to the realities of poverty, hunger and child mortality. Their best education lies not in accomplishments with a view to the marriage market - in practice a property market - but in responsible fellow-feeling for the obscure, the rude the weak and misused." Wollstonecraft's teaching proved to be remarkably effective. Her eldest charge, Margaret, would eventually leave her husband and establish a free relationship with her lover, abandoning "class and country for her own experimental course that would allow her to develop a medical practice, decades ahead of the first professional women doctors."

HARVARD COLLEGE
Boston, Massachusetts, 1791. No binding. Very Good. Broadside. List of Graduating Students and Theses for Disputation. Boston, Massachusetts: Samuel Hall, 1791. 1 p., 18 x 22 in.

Grove Art online-"Le Brun became one of the leading art dealers in Paris responsible for at least 172 auctions both before and after the French Revolution. He purchased the hôtel Lubert in 1778 and added a second building designed by Jean-Arnaud Raymond in 1784-5, which became the hub of his business activities and served as the site of Mme Vigée Le Brun's artistic and literary salon. There he built a skylit saleroom (which became the model of the new Grande Galerie in the Louvre), a separate long gallery for his library and painting collection, and a private showroom upstairs. Between 1771 and 1813 Le Brun conducted some of the pre-eminent auctions.".
