The French translation contains an account of the wines of Cyprus drawn from Mariti’s monograph on the subject. Mariti spent seven years in Cyprus, at Larnaca, where Turner, the British consul, who also represented Tuscany, placed him in charge of various interests, with the title of vice-consul. Mariti spoke both Turkish and Arabic very well. He returned to Italy after eight years in the Levant (1760–68). Volume I contains the most complete account of Cyprus up to that time, including its history, geography, antiquities, and a great deal of information on the economic life of the island. Volume II contains descriptions of Syria and Palestine, with a chapter on the current state of the Greek church.

Los-Rios, Mdlle [Charlotte-Marie de].
Dresde: Chez les Frres Walther, 1791. This work is divided into several sections, including etiquette and "good grace," precepts of a father to his children, general ideas and definitions of things that children ought to be taught, short definitions of the different arts and sciences, and precepts of civilized life. Various different stylistic formats are used, including poems, fables, and a series of questions and answers, in an effort to make this didactic work more accessible. The terminal ads list other works by this author. Charlotte-Marie de Los-Rios, who wrote a series of educational works, came from a family of printers, her father being the Lyonnaise printer Jean Mesplet and her uncle the Avignon printer Franois-Prothade Girard and her brother Fleury Mesplet, the founder of the first Canadian newspaper. Her mother, Antoinette Mesplet, was arrested for trying to smuggle prohibited books from Lyon to her brother-in-law in Avignon, and her husband, Jean-Franois de Los Rios, gained notoriety as an occasional dealer in prohibited books. Jean-Franois de Los Rios wrote a number of books himself, including Bibliographie Instructive, ou Notice de quelques Livres rares (1777), an unusual catalogue of some 800 rare books he sold during his career, including books that came from the libraries of the Jesuits at Lyon, Tournon, and Macon and from the private libraries of the abbŽs Piole and Gindre. De Los Rios, who was by now at the pinnacle of his career, was no doubt instrumental in promoting his wifeÕs educational works. Octavo.

In-4, 168 pp., 11 pl. h.t., cartonnage post., non rogné, tête rouge, mouillure claire marginale sur les neuf premières planches et une petite tache de 7 mm sur la pl. I, sinon bon exemplaire. Première édition, posthume, réunissant deux des principaux ouvrages de Camper. Pierre Camper (1722-1789), né à Leyde, étudia la médecine avec Boerhaave. Il eut une chaire à Amsterdam puis à Groningue, et acquit une immense renommée. "During his lifetime Camper was one of the most famous scientists of western Europe. (He) had an encyclopedic mind and contributed to many field." (DSB III, p. 37) "La Dissertation sur les variétés naturelles a paru séparément la même année sous un autre titre : Dissertation physique [ ] sur les différences réelles que présentent les traits du visage. Ces deux éditions françaises ont été publiées la même année que l'édition originale hollandaise. Elles sont ornées de dix belles planches dépliantes gravées sur cuivre. Camper, qui décrit ses méthodes de craniométrie, se révèle un pionnier de l'anthropométrie. Il laissa son nom à l'angle facial, qui est selon lui à la fois un critère distinctif des races humaines et un facteur esthétique, et dont la mesure est encore utile en chirurgie plastique. Certains exploitèrent ces résultats à des fins racistes. cf.

First Edition, 4th issue of the Prussian Quartets. Haberkamp Text p. 326. BUC p. 709. RISM M6169 (not distinguishing among issues). & & "The Prussian Quartets, K. 575, 589 and 590, form a group, since they are dedicated to King Friedrich Wilhelm in Berlin, who played the violoncello - or at least they were written with an eye towards such a dedication, for the first edition bears no dedication at all. The royal virtuosity had to be taken into account, and so in almost every movement of the three works the violoncello has a predominant part, while the second violin and viola retreat into the background. The quartets are slightly concertante, and yet they are purest chamber music. Mozart sometimes completely forgets his royal patron - as for instance in the minuet of the last quartet. These are three works that originated under the most dreadful spiritual oppression, and yet they rise to heights of pure felicity." Einstein: Mozart, p. 184.

It is also one of the best pictures of life in Philadelphia during his youth and middle age.

Auf festem Bütten. 35 x 47,5 cm (Darstellung).. Blick auf das Denkmal des Dichters und Staatsmannes Salomon Gessner im barocken Platzspitzpark in Zürich mit Figurenstaffage. Der geschätzte Bildhauer Alexander Trippel (1744 Schaffhausen - 1793 Rom) schuf das Denkmal, das mit Bezug auf die Dichtungen Gessners eine Szene aus "Daphins und Micon" darstellt.

. Zweite, umgeänderte und vermehrte Auflage. - Berlin, Voss'sche Bhdlg., 1791, 8°, XXII, 448 pp., mit gestochener Titelvignette, Pappband der Zeit, frisches Exemplar.. Er beschreibt hier den "Schwindel" als Krankheit des Vorstellungsvermögens, als einen Zustand von Gemütsverwirrung, der aus zu schneller, unwillkürlicher Folge von Vorstellungen entsteht oder aus dem zu langen Verweilen bei einer einzigen Vorstellung. Das Hauptthema des Buches ist somit die Beziehung zwischen Seele und Körper, d.h. eine sozusagen "psychosomatische" Konzeption von Schwindel. - "Ein seinerzeit viel genanntes Buch" Marcus Herz, "berühmter Praktiker aus der zweiten Hälfte des vorigen Jahrhunderts, war zu Berlin am 17.Januar 1747 geboren. Im Alter von 15 Jahren Kaufmannsausbildung in Königsberg, wurde er bald von solchen Wissensdrange erfasst, dass er dem kaufmännischen Berufe entsagte und in Königsberg zu studiren anfing. Er hörte KANT und schon im Jahre 1770 konnte er die philosophische These: "De mundi sensibiles forma et principiis" öffentlich vertheidigen. Darauf kehrte Herz ausgestattet mit Empfehlungsschreiben seines Lehrers KANT an LAMBERT, SULZER, MENDELSOHN nach Berlin zurück, studirte dort Medicin, später in Halle, wo er 1774 mit der "Dis. de varia naturae energia in morbis acutis atque chronicis" promovirte. dann liess er sich in Berlin nieder und war der Erste der Vorlesungen über Experimentalphysik hielt. 1785 wurde der zum Hofrath und Leibarzt des Grafen von Waldeck und 1787 von Friedrich Wilhelm II zum Professor der Philosohie ernannt. er starb am 20.

Contemporary near matching brown half calf over tree-calf resembling boards (volume I) and marbled boards (volume II), and burgundy half calf over marbled boards (volume III), each with gilt title on the spine.* One of the rarest and most influential works on malacology including the very rare and usually lacking third volume published 30 years later. "Poli ... is celebrated as the author of a lavishly illustrated, scientifically illuminating and extremely costly work on the molluscs of Sicily which, because it is so rare, is not as widely known as it should be" (Dance, A history of shell collecting). Giuseppe Saverio Poli (1746-1825) was one of the first to describe and illustrate extensively both the mollusc shell and the animal that produced it. He used the Linnaean system to describe the shells but was dissatisfied with the systematics of the living animals. Therefore he introduced a "parallel" system with different, yet also binominal names for the animals. Later, these nominal species were synonymised and nowadays we find that several of Poli's shell names as well as several of his mollusc names are regarded as valid.

Laid in is a letter addressed to Lackington dated Salisbury, Nov. 16, 1804 from John Malham (1747-1821, miscellaneous writer of arithmetics, navigational texts, and religious stories, among others) who was apparently in arrears with Lackington: "The misfortunes into which I have sometimes fallen in the past have been productive of the most serious present every resource is totally drained, that I have much difficulty from my own bad health and a young sickly family, to subsist from week to week." He tries to persuade Lackington into accepting "at a fair price...any of my publications, as the Arithmetic or the Sermons. I should wish to balance the account in that way to your satisfaction, -being the only means in my power." Malham goes on optimistically: "I should wish to see your catalogue, to look forward to better days, which yet I hope for.". [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Mrs Inchbald (1753-1821) was a moderately successful actor turned highly successful playwright; this was her first of two novels and it incorporates some theatrical conventions. Maria Edgeworth praised it highly, writing to Inchbald that she ‘never read any novel that affected [her] so strongly’.‘A Simple Story explores in much greater psychological depth issues and behavioural patterns that also preoccupied her in her plays . its overall effect is to disturb eighteenth-century complacency about the benevolence of paternal power in a way Inchbald’s drama did not’ (ODNB).ESTC lists this edition in only four UK libraries (BL, Trinity College Dublin, University of Essex, and the Wisbech and Fenland Museum) though there is also a copy in the Bodleian; there are also two holdings in Europe and seven in North America listed.
