Wien, Georg Trummers Witwe, 1791. Erstausgabe. - Der österr. Veterinärmediziner Johann Gottlieb Wolstein (1738-1820) der sich schon in jungen Jahren in Görlitz mit der Chirurgie beschäftigt hatte, kam 1760 als Begleiter eines verwundeten Offiziers nach Wien, studierte dort Chirurgie, Geburtshilfe und Medizin und ging 1769 an die Veterinärschule in Paris. Nach Studien in London, Holland, Dänemark und Preußen wurde er 1777 in Jena zum Dr. med. et chir. promoviert, errichtete im selben Jahr auf kaiserlichen Befehl das "Thierspital" mit der angegliederten "Vieharzneyschule" in Wien, aus dem später die Veterinärmedizinische Univ. hervorging, und leitete diese bis zu seiner wahrscheinlich aus politischen Gründen erfolgten Enthebung und Ausweisung aus Österreich 1795. Wolstein, der erster Protestant im österr. Staatsdienst war, privatisierte anschließend in Altona und wurde 1805 Mitglied des schleswig-holsteinischen Sanitäts-Kollegiums. Er gilt als einer der Wegbereiter der wissenschaftlichen Veterinärmedizin im deutschsprachigen Raum. - Tlw. etw. gebräunt, stockfleckig u. wasserrandig (die ersten u. letzten Bll. etw. stärker).

Schwaiger, Albin:
München, Anton Franz Wittwe, 1791. Artikeldetails Versuch einer meteorologischen Beschreibung des hohen Peißenbergs als eine nöthige Beylage zu dessen Prospektskarte. Mit 1 gefalteten Kupfertafel. Schwaiger, Albin: München, Anton Franz Wittwe, 1791. 43 Seiten. 23,5 x 19,5 cm. Halbleinen um 1850. Sprache: Deutsch Bestell-Nr: 110630 Bemerkungen: *Einzige Ausgabe, sehr selten. Poggendorff II, 872. - Die erste Beschreibung des Meteorologischen Observatoriums Hohenpeißenberg, die zugleich die ältesten Bergwetterwarte der Welt ist. Gegründet 1781 von der "Societas Meteorologica Palatina", gehörte sie damals zum Kloster Rottenbuch und wurde von den Augustinerchorherren betrieben. Nach den Anfängen unter Schlögl wirkte Herkulan Schwaiger 1782 als erster ordentlicher Observator und wurde 1787 von dem nahen Verwandten Albin Schwaiger abgelöst. 1792 konnte dieser aufgrund der seit 1781 sorgfältig registrierten Forschungsergebnisse und seiner eigenen Studien den "Versuch einer meteorologischen Beschreibung des hohen Peißenbergs" veröffentlichen. Das Observatorium (im 19. Jahrhundert weitgehend die einzige Bergwetterstation der Welt) ist aufgrund seiner fast 230-jährigen Geschichte sehr bedeutsam für die Wetter- und Klimaforschung. Aus ihren nahezu unterbrechungsfreien Messreihen wurden zahllose wichtige Erkenntnisse über die Atmosphäre gewonnen. Die Aufzeichnungen umfassten schon zu Beginn ein umfangreiches wissenschaftliches meteorologisches Messprogramm. Dank der finanziellen Mittel des Klosters war das Observatorium auch technisch besonders gut ausgestattet. Die gemessenen Daten wur … [Klicken Sie unten für eine ausführliche Beschreibung]

Smeaton, John [1724-1792] Civil Engineer and Engineer to Ramsgate Harbour
London: The Second Edition . London 1791. Hard back binding in half maroon leather with new end papers being replaced some time ago, russet pebble cloth covers gilt title and author lettering to the upper panel. 8vo. 9'' x 6''. Contains [viii] 86 printed pages of text with two 9'' x 13'' fold-out maps, the first being a Map of the Downs which shows Ramsgate in relation to the South and North Foreland's, the second fold-out map dated 1790 is a Plan of Ramsgate Harbour and the Principal Works thereof. Smeaton was born in England of Scottish ancestry. He began writing papers on instrument making and by 1753 was elected to the Royal Society. In 1755 he was selected to design a new lighthouse for the Eddystone Rocks, it included stone blocks with interlocking dovetails. He also developed a cement made of limestone and clay that could be set under water. Smeaton next went to work on water mills, his experiments led to a major paper written in 1759. He went on to build 43 mills, the most significant being the mill at the Carron Company Ironworks in 1769. He also invented a tidal pump at London Bridge for the supply of water to subscribers in 1767. Smeaton also made improvements to Edmund Halley's diving bell by adding an air pump to it, and it was this invention that was first used in the construction of Ramsgate Harbour in 1774. He died in 1792 at Austhorpe, Leeds, the place of his birth. His influence changed thinking of many of his peers to such a degree that the Institute of Civil Engineers, founded in 1771 and of which Smeaton was a founding member, was renamed the Smeatonian … [Klicken Sie unten für eine ausführliche Beschreibung]

Muret, Marc Antoine
Venetiis: Apud Josephum Orlandelli 8vo (19 cm, 7.5"). 2 vols. I: xv, 359, [1] pp. II: 328 pp.. 1791 Marc Antoine Muret (1526?-85), better known by the Latin form of his name, Muretus, started his literary career in Paris as a member of the circle of young poets that also included Dorat and Ronsard, and in 1553 he published a French commentary on Ronsard's Amours. He later moved to Italy, where he became one of the leading classicists of his day. He has long been recognized as the best Latin prose stylist of the Renaissance, and his works were used, as this textbook exemplifies, as a model for students. Vol. I of this work contains selections from his speeches, while vol. II contains letters. This particular collection of Muretus for students was apparently first published in 1739 and regularly republished during the 18th century. An engraved portrait of Muretus serves as the frontispiece for vol. I. No U.S.copies traced via NUC Pre-1956 or WorldCat. Contemporary half vellum over stencilled paper, spine with inked title; stained and paper torn with much chipping, especially on edges of covers. Ex-library with white-lettered call number on spines and, on title-pages, two different Catholic institutions' rubber-stamps, plus the old inked ownership inscription of a Jesuit novitiate (Maryland). Ink scratches to frontispiece portrait (intentional?), and some inkstains in margins elsewhere. Lightly foxed. All edges speckled red.

Lackington, James, bookseller
printed and sold by the author, 1791. First edition, 8vo, pp. xxxii, 344; engraved portrait (slightly offset onto title-p.), woodcut of the branch on p. 285; uncut; contemporary calf-backed marbled boards, spine a little perished and with an early leather repair to the joints; a good, sound copy, with the bookplate of Lee Edmonds Grove. 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 evils...at 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]

Anacreon
Parma: in aedibvs Palatinis [Giambattista Bodoni]: 1791 One of 150 paper copies, according to Brooks. Brooks states that there were also twelve copies on a vellum-like wove paper. The poems, in Greek, are followed by various readings, then commentary in Latin Greek, Roman, and Italic types, printed in upper case throughout. Contemporary Etruscan-style calf with covers and spine decoratively paneled in gilt, sunburst design in center of both covers, gilt black morocco spine label. Red paste-paper endpapers, all edges gilt. . Octavo. 3 " x 5 5/8." . Two small stipple portraits on title-page and dedication. Printed on heavy paper with an "FP" watermark, horizontal chainlines. Text block is 20 mm. thick. Spine a bit rubbed, with some of the gold flaked off. Tip of one endpaper repaired, and a few other minor repairs. Occasional very light foxing, but a beautiful, wide-margined copy, in very good condition. The British Library site shows pictures of several bindings that are very similar to this one, including one of a 1791 Bodoni imprint of The Castle of Otranto with a similar sunburst design in the middle. That book is part of the Charles Ramsden Collection of Signed Bindings, and is attributed to Edwards of Halifax. The present binding may be an Edwards of Halifax binding, as well. At the very least, it is in the style of Halifax. (See the British Museum bookbindings site, keyword "Etruscan."). Giani states that there were 200 copies on "vergata ducale" and twelve on another paper. A knowledgeable customer believes that there were fifty copies printed on this thick laid paper … [Klicken Sie unten für eine ausführliche Beschreibung]

HIGHLY IMPORTANT DOCUMENT GRANTING ALL JEWS EQUALITY OF CITITZENSHIP IN FRANCE – THE BEGINNING OF JEWISH EMANCIPATION IN MODERN HISTORY 1791 Proclamation Embraces Equal Rights for Ashkenazi Jews of France Loi Relative Aux Juifs, [Paris] France: Clermont Ferrand, December 28, 1791. Bi-folio measuring 9 1/4 inches x 7 inches. Royal coat of arms imprint across top of page with the number of the law [1425] included. Damp staining at top and lower left corner. Later hand-written date “1792” written at top. Pages clipped at top right corner, not affecting text. AMONG THE EARLIEST PROCLAMATIONS IN EUROPE OF EQUAL RIGHTS FOR BOTH SEPHARDI AND ASHKENAZI JEWS. On the eve of the French Revolution, there were approximately 40,000 Jews in France. Those of Spanish and Portuguese extraction had been living quietly among the southern population, including Bordeaux and Avignon, since the end of the 15th century. They spoke French, had become an integral part of the mercantile community and were less observant of religious ritual; in some cases pretending to be “New Christians.” The Ashkenazim, on the other hand, were concentrated in Paris and Alsace in the north of France, kept to themselves and spoke mainly Yiddish. They were considered to be “less French” than the Marranos and not equal to citizenship. On August 27, 1789 a newly created French National Assembly threw open the doors to the Revolution by approving “The Declaration of the Rights of Man”. Though freedom and equality were demanded of “al … [Klicken Sie unten für eine ausführliche Beschreibung]

La obra de Garcés es, como la mayor parte de las publicadas durante el exilio jesuita del siglo XVIII, una gran desconocida para la mayoría de los estudiosos de la literatura española. La dificultad de acceder a las fuentes, así como la consideración de mala calidad que, muchas veces de forma merecida, arrastra la literatura de nuestro siglo XVIII, han llevado al olvido casi absoluto a autores y libros excelentes, como el que nos ocupa.

Dana, James:
New Haven. 1791.. 33pp. Half title. Dbd. Light tanning, an occasional fox mark. Good. An important early American abolitionist tract. An anti-slavery society had been formed in Connecticut in 1790, and the state was in the midst of outlawing the institution altogether at the time. Ezra Stiles, president of Yale University and a former slave owner himself, was president of the Connecticut Society for the Promotion of Freedom. Dana uses the Epistle to the Galatians as his starting point, but eventually goes into great detail on the history of the slave trade in the New World, dating back to the 16th century. Statistical tables give the number of slaves in the United States in 1790, and also the amounts of slaves imported yearly throughout the 18th century. Dana puts forth Christian reasons and the ideal of the American Revolution in his call for abolition: "Those who profess to understand and regard the principles of liberty should cheerfully unite to abolish slavery." Dana was then the pastor of the First Congregational Church of New Haven, and had a long and distinguished career in the clergy. This is The New York Public Library duplicate copy of this sermon, with their ink stamp on the verso of the titlepage and a pencil note in the hand of Wilberforce Eames, then "Chief of the American History Division," on the half title.

[Id.] The Preface explains the book's purpose: to provide "a selection of the more essential parts of Mr. Bell's work," which in its unabridged form is "extended to so great a length, as to be not only expensive, but exceedingly inconvenient." Waters has taken care that "nothing useful, immediately relating to surgery, should be omitted." The plates, which appear in the Appendix along with a complete text explanation of each, were engraved by James Trenchard. They depict various surgical instruments. Evans 23170. Austin 171.

"A System of Pleading" is founded on "Doctrina Placitandi," printed in 1677, but written in law French much earlier. Holdsworth praised it as being the only systematic treatment of the subject until Stephen's "Pleading," published in 1824, and notes that it was closely studied by students as late as the latter half of the eighteenth century. The text is arranged under alphabetic headings, covering the forms of action, types of defensive pleading, and particular topics in pleading, such as "Colour" and "Negative Pregnant." The authorities cited are mainly from the seventeenth century and earlier, although the eighteenth century editor has inserted references to subsequent statutes as well as a few more recent cases and treatises, including Blackstone's Commentaries. · References: Johnson 180 (2 copies); Marvin 299; Holdsworth, HEL 5:386; Worrall 188, 194; Bridgman 114; S&M 1:268(61); ESTC T172546..
