        ATLANTE DANTESCO DA POTER SERVIRE AD OGNI EDIZIONE DELLA DIVINA COMMEDIA, OSSIA l'INFERNO, IL PURGATORIO, IL PARADISO. Composto dal Sig.Giovanni Flaxman e già incisi dal Sig.Tommaso Piroli, ed ora rintagliati dal Signor Filippo Pistrucci con aggiunta di nuovi intagli.

      Album in formato oblungo, cm.24x33,3, composto da 12 pagine di testo e da 120 incisioni al tratto di Tommaso Piroli su intagli di Filippo Pistrucci. Prefazione bilingue, italiano - francese, dell'editore Antonio Fortunato Stella. Legatura coeva in mz.pelle con piatti marmorizzati. Tassello con titoli e fregi in oro al dorso. Esemplare in barbe, ad ampi margini. Le incisioni raffigurano le cantiche del capolavoro dantesco, con citazione del verso di riferimento in versione italiana e francese. Fisiologiche tracce d'uso. Si tratta di una rara edizione ottocentesca di una importante raccolta iconografica della "Divina Commedia", pubblicata la prima volta in suite editoriale a Roma nel 1793. Ne è autore lo scultore inglese John Flaxman jr. (York, 1755 - 1826), corrispondente e allievo di William Blake, interprete dei canoni del neoclassicismo e ispiratore dell'arte di Ingres. Un'opera rivoluzionaria nell'interpretazione iconografica dantesca, tanto che il celebre quadro di Paolo e Francesca dello stesso Ingres sarebbe inconcepibile senza la chiave di lettura datane da Flaxman.

        The Botanical Magazine; or Flower-Garden displayed

      London.: W. Curtis.. Copyright 1793. This issue circa 1812.. 2 volumes bound in one, 72 handcolored engraved plates each with facing page of text, 10 3/4 x 6 3/4 inches (26x17.5cm), decorative embossed cloth-covered boards. Plates on wove paper, generally very clean and bright, occasional light foxing or spotting (spot and pinhole to centre of plate 16, the Variegated Iris), some foxing to text pages. Front joint broken, white tape mend to interior hinge at Preface. This is an early 1800s reprint of the first two volumes of William Curtis' periodical "The Botanical Magazine." This publication proved so popular that plates from the earlier volumes were reissued to satisfy the demand of later subscribers who desired a complete set. Curtis featured some of the most decorative and popular imported plants in these early volumes, making these volumes an absolute treat for the eye. Plants include Moss Rose, several varieties of Iris, Daffodil, Gentian, Eastern Poppy, Cyclamen, and, from China: #64 Tawny Day-Lily; #25 China Pink, #42 Rose Camellia. These are very strong impressions, which are particularly pleasing contrasted against the white color of the wove paper. .

        [AUTOGRAPH LETTER, SIGNED, FROM GOUVERNEUR MORRIS, AMERICAN FINANCIER AND FRAMER OF THE CONSTITUTION, TO HIS NEPHEW, JAMES MORRIS]

      Paris. Jan. 7, 1793.. [3]pp., docketed on verso of last leaf. Light fold lines. Near fine. A lengthy letter from Gouverneur Morris to his nephew, James Morris, providing details of a 1787 loan on which significant interest was still due from the debtor, Morris' older half-sister, Mary Morris Lawrence. Morris composed this letter while serving as U.S. Finance minister to France. Most of the text is an explanation of the interest due. He states that a recent payment was made through William Constable, Morris' former business partner and who, along with other Philadelphia associates, had loaned Morris the money needed to purchase the family estate, Morrisiana, in 1787. He then embarks on a description of the remaining debt and entreats his nephew to facilitate payment "speedily." Morris ends his letter with this statement: "I perfectly agree with you that a small sum on my farm with contentment is better than any thing in a situation like that in which I am now placed but the first of all enjoyments is that which results from doing our duty." Having previously served as an assistant to Robert Morris (no relation) in the Department of Finance under the Articles of Confederation, Morris was named to the Constitutional Convention in 1787. Credited with being that document's "stylist," he would write in a later letter to Thomas Pickering: "the Constitution was written by the hand which writes you this letter; having rejected all the equivocal and redundant terms, I thought it as clear as our language would permit." Morris would later serve in the U.S. Senate and participate in the re- mapping of the city of New York that was largely responsible for its present grid pattern. Good evidence of Morris' personal finances and a fine expression of his civic spirit. ANB 15, pp.898-99.

        Droits de l'homme; en reponse a l'attaque de M. Burke sur la Revolution Francoise. Avec des notes et une nouvelle preface de l'auteur. Seconde edition (Vol. 1). 2 Vol.

      Paris, chez F. Buisson, 1793 und 1792 - 2 Bll., 239 S.; 2 Bll., IV, 224 S. Halblederbände der Zeit mit rotem Rückenschild und Rückenvergoldung. Band 1 in 2., der meist fehlende Band 2 in erster französicher Ausgabe. - Die Erstausgabe des Schlüsselwerkes erschien 1791-1792 bei Johnson in London. - Mit zweiseitiger, gedruckter Widmung an George Washington und sechsseitigem neuen Vorwort des Verfassers für die französische Ausgabe. - Der britisch-amerikanische Publizist Thomas Paine (1737-1809), ein entschiedener Befürworter der amerikanischen Unabhängigkeit, traf in England mit Edmund Burke zusammen. Ihre unterschiedliche Beurteilung der Französischen Revolution führte zum Bruch und zum vorliegenden Hauptwerk Paines, in dem dieser die Revolution befürwortet. - Der Widerspruch gegen die 1790 erschienene Schrift Burkes, in dem dieser die Revolution streng verurteilt "hob die Auseinandersetzung auf eine höhere Ebene. Mit einer Kraft und einer Klarheit, wie sie nicht einmal Burke besaß, entwickelte Paine jene Grundsätze der allgemeinen Menschenrechte, die unabdingbar sein müssen, gleichviel welche Ausschreitungen auch begangen werden, um sie zu erkämpfen" (Carter/Muir S.444). - "'Rights of Man', Paines wichtigstes Werk, das (besonders im zweiten Teil) zahlreiche sozialreformerische Forderungen formulierte, die erst die demokratischen Sozialstaaten des 20. Jh.s einlösten, entstand in England, wohin Paine 1788 zurückgekehrt war, als antwort auf die Kritik Edmund Burkes an der Französischen Revolution. Es wurde die bekannteste und meistgelesene Verteidigung der Ideale der Französischen Revolution und der Menschenrechte" (KNLL XII,879f.). - Kanten etwas berieben, Name auf Vorsatz, die ersten und letzten Blätter etwas leimschattig, teilweise etwas gebräunt bzw. stockfleckig. - Gutes und dekorativ gebundenes Exemplar.

        Names of the committee of subscribers, for the relief of the suffering French clergy, refugees in the British Dominions

      This is a list of some 35 names of the committee members, of which T.I. Hester was the secretary, and a notice that "the Committee meets at the Free Masons Tavern, Great Queen-Street, on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, in every week".The list is interesting as it brings together, by philanthropic association as it were, not only the drivers of the Clapham Sect (William Wilberforce and Henry Thornton) but others of good will not least of whom was Edmund Burke. Indeed, Burke's history in his latter years suggests that the French Clergy Relief Committee may have been created at his own instigation. London in the mid 1790s was full of French refugees, many in dire financial straits. Among these were several thousand priests, besides 19 bishops and archbishops. "What one man could do to provide for their necessities Burke did. Badly off as he was he subscribed liberally himself, and he sent a subscription list to his friends, and his example stirred up many to copy it". [Murray, Edmund Burke, p.389]. Henry Thornton, who believed that the war with France was "more just than almost any other in the British history" [Recollections, quoted in ODNB] was generous to a fault in his charitable giving. "His charity ... was considerable: Stephen (Clapham Sect) says that he gave away between £2000 and £9000 a year, six-sevenths of his income before his marriage and one-third after it". [Christopher Tolley in ODNB]. In addition to that of William Wilberforce, other committee members included Lord Sheffield, Thomas Bernard, John Julius Angerstein, Thomas Astle, and Robert Banks Jenkinson, later to be 2nd Earl of Liverpool.folio, single leaf with text on recto and docket title on verso, folded for posting, short closed tear in one fold (no loss) but in very good state of preservation., n.d.

London: Printed for W. Richardson . . . J. Phillips, . . . and W. Pennington, 1793. 216 x 136 mm. 19th century sheep, gilt spine, a little rubbed. Very good copy.First Edition, First Issue, with the publishers? names as above and the price on the title given as four shillings. Dalton?s first book, containing his first statement of what we now call Dalton?s law of partial pressures. Dalton?s study of rainfall and water vapor in the atmosphere led him to claim that water vapor exists in the atmosphere as ?fluid sui generis diffused among the rest of the aerial fluids,? rather than as a result of a chemical reaction with air. In the appendix to the work, Dalton stated that ??the vapour of water (and probably of most other liquids) exists at all times in the atmosphere in an independent state? . . . The ideas that in a mixture of gases every gas acts as an independent entity (Dalton?s law of partial pressures) and that the air is not a vast chemical solvent were thus first stated in the Meteorological Observations? (Dictionary of Scientific Biography). Smyth, John Dalton, 1. $2000

        Forms of prayer, for the use of a congregation of Protestant Dissenters, in Bradford

      Bradford in this case refers to Bradford on Avon, Wiltshire. The Grove Meeting House (now the Zion Baptist Chapel), built in 1698, was the oldest nonconformist place of worship in Bradford on Avon. In 1793 there seems to have been a pretty small congregation, describing themselves as Unitarians, led by a Mr. Williams of Calne who died in 1810. It must have been he who adopted the liturgy then in use at the principal Unitarian Chapel in Manchester. An Advertisement in this volume, dated 10th August, 1793, confirms this as the source of the Grove Meeting liturgy.8vo., (4) + 106pp., with p.48 misnumbered 8, contemporary sheep, with 'Grove Meeting 39' in gilt on upper cover, the binding neatly rebacked and repaired, spine lettered gilt.

      - First edition of Tennemann's translation of Hume's Enquiry. The first German translation of Hume's Enquiry concerning Human Understanding (by J.G. Sulzer) appeared in 1755 as Part Two of his Vermischte Schriften. This second translation is by Wilhelm Gottlieb Tenneman (1761-1819), author of the well known 10-volume history of philosophy. In his foreword Tennemann notes two reasons for the new translation: first, the centrality of Hume's philosophy in the Kantian revolution, and second, the many deficiencies of Sulzer's version. The book also has a fifty-page essay on scepticism by Kant's highly influential follower Karl Leonhard Reinhold: 'In fact it became customary during this time to speak of the Kant-Reinholdian philosophy' (Manfred Kuehn, Kant: a biography, CUP 2001, p. 351). PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: Small 8vo, xii, lii, 380 pp., contemporary speckled boards, rubbed and with wear particularly at one corner, two small faint pencil inscriptions on title-page, otherwise internally clean, uniform browning and occasional spots, no library stamps, a good copy.

        Faunae Insectorum Germanicae Initia oder Deutschlands Insecten.

      Nürnberg, in der Felseckerschen Buchhandlung, (1793-1813). 110 parts, bound in 30 volumes. Oblong small-8vo (135 x 85mm, text vols. & 125 x 85mm, atlas vols.). With 2635 (of 2640) beautifully hand-coloured engraved plates, each plate with descriptive text. Later red half cloth, spines with gilt lines and lettering. An attractive set of all that was published by Panzer, of the most beautiful miniature entomological work ever published. Panzer published parts 1-109 and the final part of this set was published by Geyer. A small number of plates with some minor dampstaining at the outer margin not affecting the illustration. The splendid illustrations are of an unsurpassed beauty and exactness. Georg Wolfgang Franz Panzer (1755-1829) was a German entomologist; regional physician in Hersbruck near Nuremberg and lecturer at the Collegium Medicum in Nuremberg. "There does not exist a more accurate or useful work. The figures are drawn and etched by the famous Sturm, the best entomological artist on the continent; ... while the descriptions, although frequently too short, are written by hand of a master. The system of Fabricius is followed and the work altogether is highly essential to every one who writes upon the entomology of Europe" (Swainson).//A continuation to Panzer's work was published by Herrich-Schaeffer and is very scarce due to a decreasing number of subscribers.//"Die alte bayrische Schule der naturwissenschaftliche Illustrationen hat sich unsterbliche Verdienste besonders um die Entomologie erworben. Sie hat die schönsten Abbildungswerke dieser Wissenschaft geliefert" (Junk. Rara II, p. 142).//Jacob Sturm (1771-1848) was born in Nürnberg. His father Johann Georg Sturm was an engraver. Jacob Sturm was the editor and illustrator of several natural history works such as his 'Deutschlands Flora in Abbildungen nach der Natur mit Beschreibungen'. Apart from this he illustrated a great number of the finest natural history works published at that period in South Germany./The set is systematically bound as follows:/Coleoptera. 14 volumes (7 vols. of plates and 7 text vols.), with 1382 fine hand-coloured plates./Orthoptera/ Nevroptera. 1 volume, plates and text bound together, with 59 fine hand-coloured plates./Hymenoptera. 4 volumes (4 vols. of plates and 4 text vols.), with 589 fine hand-coloured engraved plates./Hemiptera. 2 volumes. (1 vol. of plates and 1 text vol.), with 118 fine hand-coloured engraved plates./Lepidoptera. 2 volumes. (1 vol. of plates and 1 text vol.), with 201 fine hand-coloured engraved plates./Diptera. 2 volumes.

Begli esempl., freschi, rarissime ingialliture in alcune (poche) pp. Il Conte Gian Rinaldo Carli (Capodistria, 11 aprile 1720 ? Milano, 22 febbraio 1795) è stato uno scrittore, economista, archeologo e storico italiano fra i più celebri del suo tempo. Discepolo di Ludovico Antonio Muratori e di Scipione Maffei, venne ammesso per le sue eccezionali doti intellettuali, nonostante appena ventenne, nell?Accademia dei Ricovrati di Padova. Nel 1745 le autorità universitarie istituiranno una cattedra di Scienza nautica da affidare al giovane erudito capodistriano. A Padova Carli resterà fino al 1751, alternando la sua attività di insegnante a quella di letterato, per poi ritornare nella sua Capodistria natale, dove si fermerà due anni, per poi trasferirsi a Milano (1753 - 1756), in Toscana (1756 - 1758) e, infine, dopo brevi soggiorni nuovamente in Istria, a Venezia e a Parma, per poi installarsi definitivamente a Milano (1765) per assumere la presidenza del Supremo Consiglio dell'Economia del Ducato di Milano, ente dominato all'epoca dagli Asburgo, funzione offertagli da un ministro austriaco per le sue riconosciute capacità e competenze. Nel 1780, dopo quindici anni di ininterrotto servizio come uno fra i massimi responsabili della politica economica e finanziaria imperiale, il Carli rinuncerà ad ogni incarico pubblico per potersi consacrare interamente ai suoi studi e ai suoi lavori scientifici, economici e storici. Grande interesse in Italia e all'estero susciteranno i suoi volumi Delle antichità italiche, opera di ampio respiro, in cui l'autore tratteggia un'erudita sintesi della storia delle passate grandezze del nostro Paese dagli Etruschi fino al XIV secolo, confermandosi nel contempo un erudito archeologo. Quest'opera procurò al Carli un'agiata vecchiaia in quanto l'Imperatore Leopoldo II°, per la fama che ne conseguì, gli concesse un ricco appannaggio mensile. A lui sono stati dedicati, fra gli altri, due prestigiosi Istituti italiani: l'Istituto Tecnico Commerciale Statale di Trieste e il Liceo - Ginnasio di Capodistria..

      1793. Radierung, Roulette und Kaltnadel, 1793, auf Velin. 22:32,9 cm. Literatur: Le Blanc 61; Perez 91, IV (von V). - Sehr guter, nuancierter Abdruck, vollrandig, gering stockfleckig.. Der hauptsächlich als Zeichner, Radierer und Kupferstecher tätige Künstler studierte in seiner Geburtsstadt an der Ecole gratuite de dessin. Darüber hinaus bildete er sich autodidaktisch weiter. 1758 veröffentlichte er im Auftrag des Pariser Stechers und Kupferstichverlegers Pariset seine ersten Radierungen. 1761-1764 setzte er sein Studium in Paris fort, wo er Schüler des Historienmalers J.-Ch. Frontier (1701-1763) und eines gewissen Lombards war. In Paris verkehrte er im Kreis von J.G. Wille (1715-1808), Jos. Vernet (1714-1789), L.-E. Watelet (1780-1866), J.-B. Greuze (1725-1805), J.G. Soufflot (1713-1780) und dem jungen Herzog Alex Duc de La Rochefoucauld, den er 1765-1766 nach Italien begleitete. In Italien schuf er zahlreiche Landschaftszeichnungen und Abbildungen von Monumenten. Nach seiner Rückkehr nach Lyon hatte er großen Erfolg mit seinen Zeichnungen und Radierungen, mit Porträts und italienischen und niederländischen Landschaften sowie der heimischen Landschaft von Lyon. Auch als Reproduktionsstecher nach Gemälden oder Skulpturen fand er zahlreiche Auftraggeber. 1771 wurde der Künstler zum königlichen Berater und Kämmerer berufen. 1780 erfolgte die Aufnahme in die Lyoner Akademie. Während der französischen Revolution stand er unter der Protektion des Künstlers J.-L David (1748-1825) - seine Kupferplatten wurden unter gesetzlichen Schutz gestellt. 1802 wurde Boissieu Mitglied der Verwaltungskommission des Kunstkonservatoriums. 1806 bis zu seinem Tode war er Bürgermeister von Lentilly in der Nähe von Lyon. Boissieus Arbeiten sind in den Museen weltweit zu finden, so in Paris im Louvre, in Frankfurt am Main im Städel oder in der National Gallery of Art in Washington DC.

      Athen, bey Aristoteles Erben im letzten Jahr der 642. Olympiade (d. i. Thorn, Erfurt oder Altona, Vollmer, 1793 oder 1795) und (Bände 2 und 3) Altona, Verlagsgesellschaft, 1795-1796.. . Erste Ausgabe dieses ungewöhnlich scharfen antiklerikalen Aufklärungsromans, vollständig mit allen drei Bänden. Zwei Wanderer werden aus ferner Zeit auf die Erde versetzt und erweisen sich als Jesus Christus und der jüngere Johannes. Sie reisen von Jerusalem über Konstantinopel und Polen nach Königsberg zu Kant, wo sie mit ihm über Religion, Glauben und Unglauben philosophieren. Sie beobachten das Verhalten der Menschen und sind über Praxis und Auslegung des Christentums entsetzt. Auf ihrer weiteren Wanderung nach Berlin prangern sie alles an, was sich aufklärerischen Bemühungen in den Weg stellt: das Wöllnersche Religionsedikt, den Prozess gegen Riem wegen angeblichen Verstoßes dagegen, die Zensur gegen Unger, Würzers Prozess wegen seiner 'Freymüthigen Betrachtungen über das Religionsedikt ...' u.v.a.m. Venturini (1768-1849), Historiker und Theologe, schrieb zahlreiche Beiträge zur Kirchengeschichte und zu Zeitschriften wie 'Braunschweigisches Journal', 'Chronik des 19. Jahrhunderts', Brockhaus' Konversationslexikon. Bände 2 und 3 mit dem zusätzlichen Titel 'Abentheuerliche Wanderungen durch die Preußischen Staaten in Bezug auf die neuesten religiösen und politischen Vorfälle', Band 3 zusätzlich mit 'Preußens neueste Anordnungen in Kirchensachen geprüft von T. H. Henke'. Dies erklärt die bibliographische Verwirrung: Hayn/G. VI 284 ("Cplt. rar!" (nur Henke als Verfasser). H./B. VI 6956 (ohne Zahl der Bände und falsches Jahr). Jestädt, Vollmer, 25, 80 und 123. Nicht bei Goed. VI 405, 7. - Teils fleckig und mit Leimschatten, sonst gutes Exemplar des äußerst seltenen Werks. Kein vollständiges Exemplar im JAP sei 1950.
