SPEDALIERI NICOLA
s.n, 1791. Cm. 25, pp.viii, 448. Con bel ritratto dell'A. inciso in rame all'antip. Legatura del tempo in mezza pelle verde con ampie punte; titoli in su tass. e filetti ornati in oro al dorso. Tagli gialli. Trascurabili e sporadiche fioriture. Bell'esemplare. Edizione originale dell'opera principale del filosofo e pensatore politico catanese Nicola Spedalieri (1740-1795). Vi si asserisce il fondamento cristiano dei principi scaturiti dalla rivoluzione francese e si individua nella sovranità popolare il cardine del governo politico. Le posizioni filo-giacobine espresse nell'opera valsero all'A. la riprovazione di gran parte dell'universo dottrinale cattolico. Cfr.

Er zählte in seiner Zeit zu den hervorragendsten Gelehrten Europas. In naher Beziehung zu seinem Interesse für den Körperbau des Menschen stehen seine Untersuchungen an Affen, namentlich an den menschenähnlichen.

Haydn, Joseph.
London, John Bland for the author, [June 1791]. Oblong folio (335 x 239 mm). 18 pp., engraved throughout Contemporary coloured paper wrappers. Signed by Haydn on the title page. Termed the "original first edition" by Hoboken. A secular cantata composed around 1789, the first edition proper was published by Artaria in 1790. The publisher Bland had visited Haydn at Eszterháza; he was instrumental in bringing Haydn to London and provided his first lodging there in January 1791. "Arianna" was performed in London in February by the soprano castrato Gasparo Pacchierotti, with Haydn accompanying on the harpsichord: "On 18 February [1791] Haydn made his first appearance in a concert in which he accompanied his cantata 'Ariana a Naxos' on the pianoforte. The success was such that the cantata's performance needed to be repeated a few days later" (cf. Huss, p. 146f.). Haydn later would regarded the two periods he spent in the British capital (1791-92 and 1794-95) as the happiest of his life. - Beautifully preserved. Hob. II, 298. RISM H/HH, 2584. Hoboken cat. 9, no. 1583 (fig. 17). Eitner V, p. 68. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

SWEDENBORG, Emanuel.
London: Printed and Sold by R. Hindmarsh, [Treatise: Sold also by J. Denis; and I. and W. Clarke, Manchester,] 1788 & 1791. 2 works bound in 1 volume, octavo (207 x 126 mm). Contemporary marbled sheep, smooth spine gilt in compartments, black morocco label. Later ownership inscription of Dorothy Schneider to front free endpaper, some pencil annotations to contents. Some skilful restorations to spine ends, headcaps chipped, corners just worn, a few light stains, first half-title torn at across at upper outer corner to remove ink ownership inscription, with slight loss of typographic border, still very good copies. First editions in English, translated and published by the printer Robert Hindmarsh (1759-1835), a leading light among the early Swedenborgians in England, one of the founders of the Theosophical Society. On 14 April 1789 William Blake and his wife, Catherine, attended the First General Conference of the Swedenborgian New Jerusalem Church at the chapel in Maidenhead Lane, just off Great Eastcheap, which Hindmarsh had helped established and where Hindmarsh's father was the first preacher. Hindmarsh subsequently gave a misleading impression of the movement in his Rise and Progress of the New Jerusalem Church, published posthumously in 1861; his earlier works better reflect the radical, even revolutionary flavour of the sect at this time.

PAINE (Thomas)
Ouvrage adressé aux Américains, et dans lequel on traite de l'origine et de l'objet du gouvernement, de la constitution Angloise, de la monarchie héréditaire, et de la situation de l'Amérique septentrionale. Traduit de l'Anglois (.). Paris, Gueffier, 1791, in-8, basane fauve mouchetée, dos à nerfs cloisonné et fleuronné, pièce de titre cerise, filet à froid encadrant les plats, tranches jaunes mouchetées [Rel. de l'époque]. [2], iv et 113 pp. Sabin 58217. Première édition publiée à Paris, et la deuxième en français. La première édition française était parue en 1777, à l'adresse de Rotterdam. Paine, qui voyageait alors entre Londres et Paris, a probablement surveillé lui-même l'impression de l'ouvrage, avant que l'Assemblée Constituante ne lui octroie la citoyenneté française. L'ouvrage devait encore être réimprimé en France en 1793, à chaque fois dans un contexte de forts bouleversements politiques. Au départ, le Common sense doit être compris dans le contexte de la Guerre d'indépendance américaine : Paine y discutait les origines et les objectifs du gouvernement anglais et attaquait la constitution britannique et l'institution de la monarchie héréditaire. Dans un langage à la portée d'un large public, il plaidait pour la supériorité de la loi naturelle sur les codes politiques et la philosophie des droits naturels qui devaient servir de cadre à la Déclaration de l?indépendance des États-Unis d?Amérique. Ayant convenu avec l'imprimeur R. Bell de partager les profits éventuels de l'ouvrage, il envisageait d'affecter sa part du profit à l'acquisition de gants d'hiver pour les … [Click Below for Full Description]
