        Empfindsame Reise nach Schilda. 191 S. Mit gestoch. Frontispiz, gestoch. Titel und 4 großen Textkupfern. Schlichter Halbldederbd d. Z.

      Leipzig, Wilhelm Heinsius, 1793. - Erste Ausgabe des geistreichen Frühwerks. "Satire auf politische und gesellschaftliche Verhältnisse. Aktualisierung von Episoden aus dem Lalebuch, damit Anknüpfung an einen ähnlichen Versuch von Johann Gottlob Schulz: Die neuen Schildbürger oder Lalenbuch in den Tagen der Aufklärung . Nürnberg 1791" (Kawa). Die hübschen Kupfer sind von Dornheim nach Schubert gestochen. Rebmann (1768-1824) gilt neben Forster als einer der bedeutendsten deutschen Jakobiner. Seine Entwicklung vom aufgeklärten Publizisten über den reformerisch gesinnten Satiriker bis zum Volkstribun zeigt exemplarisch die Situation der deutschen Intelligenz im letzten Jahrzehnt des 18. Jahrhunderts. Nach seiner Promotion war er ab 1789 als Prokurator in Erlangen tätig. Als Verfechter der Prinzipien der Französischen Revolution wie der Menschenrechte entlassen, wandte er sich der Publizistik zu und war nach 1792 wiederholt zur Flucht gezwungen, Redakteur und Herausgeber verschiedener politischer Zeitschriften (u. a. 'Das neue graue Ungeheuer') in Dresden, Erfurt, Altona und Paris. Nach der Annexion des Rheinlandes durch Frankreich wurde Rebmann 1797 Richter am Kriminalgericht zu Mainz, wo er 1803 den Prozess gegen die berüchtigten Räuber Johannes Bückler (Schinderhannes) und Damian Hessel führte. Im Jahre 1810 wurde er Präsident des kaiserlichen Gerichtshofs zu Trier. Nach dem Sturz Napoleons wurde er in den Justizdienst Pfalzbayerns übernommen und war zuletzt Oberpräsident des Appellationsgerichtshofs in Zweibrücken. Neben Walter Grab und Kawa haben sich bisher nur Wadle und Sauder (Schriften der Siebenpfeiffer-Stiftung, Band 4) ausführlicher mit Rebmann und seinem Werk beschäftigt. – Anfangs etwas fingerfleckig. Sehr breitrandiges, unbeschnittenes Exemplar. – Goed. V 547, 6, 3. Kawa 8. Hayn/G. VI 404. Rümann 905. Wolfstieg 41579. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Della libertà e della eguaglianza degli uomini, e dei cittadini. Colle considerazioni sopra alcuni nuovi dommi politici ed appendice.Traduzione italiana dalla prima edizione.Vienna, presso Ignazio Alberti, 1793.

      Vienna, presso Ignazio Alberti 1793 - Cm. 24, pp. (12) 445 (7). Bella legatura coeva in piena pelle con titoli su tassello e ricchi fregi in oro al dorso; piatti inquadrati a duplice cornice dorata. Dentelles, tagli dorati, segnalibro in seta verde. Sottile fenditura al piatto anteriore e minime mende al dorso, qualche trascurabile fioritura, peraltro esemplare ben conservato e stampato su carta forte. Sebastiano d'Ayala (1744-1817), gesuita di Castrogiovanni, fu diplomatico a Vienna e sovente menzionato come biografo e curatore delle opere di Metastasio, del quale peraltro fu amico. L'opera è un interessantissimo saggio sui principi scaturiti dalla Rivoluzione francese: diritti naturali, libertà costituzionale, civile e sociale ed infine le diverse tipologie di eguaglianza. L'Autore fu influenzato dal pensiero politico di Montesquieu e dalle idee controrivoluzionarie di Edmund Burke. Rarissima prima traduzione italiana (curata dall'amico Francesco Ruspoli) impressa dopo la prima in francese edita sempre a Vienna nel 1792. Seguirono, sempre nel 1793, le edizioni di Torino e le due senza dati tipografici, più comuni e di formato più piccolo. Cfr.

Dos en grande partie manquant, idem pour l'étiquette de titre. Galerie de vers en marge basse jusque la p. 14. Decremps n'était pas lui-même prestidigitateur ni magicien mais son oeuvre écrite est un grand classique de la magie. C'est après avoir assisté aux séances et spectacles de Pinetti, qui se présentait comme physicien, qu'il choisit de dévoiler tous ses tours après que ce dernier lui eut adressé un défi. Les deux hommes n'eurent de cesse de se combattre et les ouvrages de Decremps firient pas assurer la ruine de Pinetti. Decremps assurait vouloir dénoncer tous les charlatans et en donne témoignage dans son avant-propos, bien qu'il ne cite pas Pinetti par son nom. L'ouvrage contient nombre de tours curieux, notamment de télépathie et de divination dont certains emploient les mathématiques  (Enfoncer un couteau dans la tête du coq sans le tuer, tours avec des gobelets, nouveau secret pour faire des jeux de mots, deviner en apparence la pensée d'autrui, Palingénésie ou l'art de faire revivre les morts...).

        SEIKEI ZUSETSU: ILLUSTRATED BOOK OF AGRICULTURE. [Woodblock-Printed & Illustrate

      - Osaka 1793, Hanfu Shorin. Stitched yellow stiff wrs.,30 vol. set, 19.7 x 26.5 cm.,title slips,2 indigo-blue folding cloth Chitsu folding cases, bone clasps, clean covers a few dusty, contents very clean & bright, complete set. FIRST EDITION This superb and copious work was initiated in Kansei 5 [1793] by order of Shimazu Shigehide [1745-1833], the Daimyo of Satsuma, i.e. the Feudal Lord [Tycoon]. This area is now called Kagoshima Prefecture, Kyushu. The work was edited by Soh, Han, [aka: by his "studio" or "go" name: Soh Senshun 1758-1834]. . Lord of Shimazu ordered a comprehensive illustrated encyclopedic treatise on agriculture and agricultural botany. The work had an ambitious task, to list every known plant in Japan, with drawings of a large number of examples. Though the original plan was to make this work in 100 volumes, due to fire and other catastrophes, it only went to 30 volumes in all. * EDITORS: The work was edited by Soh Senshun [So Han] & Shirao Kokuchu. *** DISASTER DURING THE COMPLIATION OF THIS WORK: This work was to be the greatest work of botany every published, but was interrupted twice by fire. never progressed beyond the 30 volumes. The work suffered two fires in 1806, and again in 1829. These fires destroyed a great number of the book's woodcut blocks, along with a large number of printed pages stored in a warehouse which burned to the ground. It dealt with agricultural botany, and a few wild food plants. *** THE INCLUSION OF SOME FOREIGN GRAINS & CORN: The work is nicely described & illustrated in Bartlett [see below] as exhibit 33. Figure 29 shows four pages from this work. It also included a bizarre and unusual form of American Indian Maize [i.e. corn] from the new world, known in Japan as Mamekibi. It also shows two other foreign grains: Tobiki or T'ang millet, and Namban millet from the land of the Portuguese or "Southern Barbarians." Also Koma-kibi a Korean millet from the old name Koma for Korea. . The corn was fried in a pan to make "pop-corn" an early record of this kind of usage and food. It may even predate the American usage of corn. *** The contents also deals with the agricultural ceremonies and festivals, planting and tending crops, surveying, irrigation, flood control, farm implements, verities of rice ad various agricultural products. . This famous, stunning and copious work remains one of the most important botanicals ever done in Japan, and is considered one of the most comprehensive and reliable works ever done on the subject in Japan. *** EDITION: This is the FIRST & ONLY EDITION OF THE BOOK. This work was not reprinted nor issued serially, but issued as a set of 30 volumes complete in its one and only edition. *** CONDITION: The set is uniformly bound in stiff yellow stitched wrappers. The first volume covers are dusty front & back; vol.2 & 11 have some stains on the front covers, back covers clean. Vol.8 a bit of stain & spots to lower front cover, back cover clean. Else all other volumes are exceptionally clean both front and back converse as well as bright and clean contents, no worming or other issues.

        A narrative of the sufferings of James Bristow, belonging to the Bengal Artilley [sic], during ten years captivity with Hyder Ally and Tippoo Saheb.

      London J. Murray 1793 - First London edition. 8vo., vi, 210pp., contemporary tree calf gilt, red morocco label by Kalthoeber with his ticket, lightly rubbed, a fine copy. Scarce. "Hyder and Tipu's policy of moving their prisoners around the Carnatic is evidenced in the narratives and journals of those individuals who survived to tell the tale, as are the torments endured by British officers and soldiers, compounded by their being forced to march for days in the extreme heat – starving, bound and often ill, injured or dying – between the hill forts . Indeed, the fact that he and his fellow soldiers moved around the countryside is crucial to Bristow's account of his captivity. In the preface to the first edition of his narrative, published in Calcutta, Bristow justifies adding to the already significant stock of information on the British prisoners of war, and distinguishes his tale from that of more senior members of the military: A captivity of ten years during which period several removals from one place of imprisonment to another took place, and many changes in point of treatment occurred, includes much more variety than the account of what befell our officers, who remained under close confinement, till delivered up; and admitted more opportunities to see the country, to converse with the natives, whose language naturally became familiar and to learn the fate and disposal of a number of fellow captives, not liberated at the peace, some of whom had been prisoners for many years in short, to be better informed than Gentlemen who were never suffered to step beyond the limits of their prison wall. Several of the vexations and acts of violence committed against the private soldiers could not reach the knowledge of the officers, though many of them came to their ears; nor could they know what befell them subsequent to their release Bristow not only denotes a hierarchy of suffering – distinguishing those soldiers who were forcibly marched through the Carnatic from the more senior officers who apparently suffered fewer 'vexations' in their fixed prison sites – but also indicates that being moved around the inhospitable landscape was a defining aspect of his captivity. Encountering and enduring the landscape, whether as prisoner or victor, is a formative aspect of war".

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

      Trowbridge: printed by Abraham Small 1793 - 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. A very good crisp copy. First edition (but see notes). 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. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Kjobenhavns Universitets-Journal udgiven ved Professor Jac. Baden. Ferste Aagang. [ - niende Aagang].

      Kiobenhavn -1801 1793 - 9 vols., 4to., complete except for one defective index leaf and lack of some printed wrappers, (see full collation below), entirely uncut. An excellent set now preserved in two purpose-made boxes, each labelled appropriately. Each separate issue has a very small discard stamp of Stockholm University Library>. There are no other marks except for two early ownership signatures on the upper wrapper of the first fascicule. A complete run of this academic journal published quarterly from 1793 to 1801. (No more published). Apparently very rare: no copies found on OCLC. The Kjobenhavns Universitets-Journal> was edited by Jacob Baden (1735-1804), Professor of Philology (notably Danish and Latin) at the University of Copenhagen from 1780 until his death. The journal's purpose seems to have been two-pronged: (1) To provide a vehicle for university news, lecture schedules, faculty curricula, examination programmes, lists of degrees conferred, details of stipends available, &c., and (2) To provide a printed medium for articles, reviews, lecture synopses, and so forth, that reflected Baden's conservative views, particularly in literature and philosophy. A notable example of this is a series of summaries of lectues refuting Kant given by Niels Treschow (1751-1833), the Norwegian philosopher and himself a graduate of the University of Copenhagen where he lectured until 1813 when he returned to Christiana (Oslo) to assume a prominent role in launching Norway's first university. Jacob Baden also used his journal as a sounding board for his own efforts to keep the Danish language 'pure' while still allowing it to accommodate modern developments. For example, the journal contains in serial form a supplement to Baden's orthographic Danish dictionary, introducing 'modern' words such as 'demokrati', 'despot', 'physiognomik', and 'psykologi'. The full collation and condition notes are as follows: Vol.I. 1793. Første Aargang>. 4to., (2) + 190pp., engraved vignette on title-page, original printed blue upper wrapper repaired, final index leaf (table of contents) defective, lower wrapper replaced, entirely uncut.

        A Treatise of Equity. With the addition of marginal references and notes.

      Wheldon and Butterworth, London., 1793-4. First edition. Octavo. Two volumes: pp x, 449, [14] index; xxiv, 495, [35] (index of cases referred to), [26] (general index), [1] (errata). Full eighteenth-century calf, raised bands, red leather title-labels lettered in gilt. The authorship of the book has been nominally ascribed to Henry Ballow who anonymously published an edition in 1737 but which was so lacking in notes and references as to be useless. It was under Fonblanque's editorship and thanks to his massive additions that the book soon became the standard work on equity. Samuel Johnson claimed that what he knew of law he learned from "a Mr. Ballow, a very able man." Little is known of him but there is an interesting contemporary account: "There was a man of the name of Ballow who used to pass his evenings at Tom's Coffee House in Devereux Court, then the resort, of some of the most eminent men for learning. Ballow was a man of deep and extensive learning, but of vulgar manners, and, being of a splenetic temper, envied [the poet Mark] Akenside for the eloquence he displayed in his conversation. Moreover, he hated him for his republican principles. One evening at the coffee house a dispute between these two persons rose so high, that for some expression uttered by Ballow, Akenside thought himself obliged to demand an apology, which not being able to obtain, he sent his adversary a challenge in writing. Ballow, a little deformed man, well known as a saunterer in the park, about Westminster, and in the streets between Charing Cross and the houses of parliament, though remarkable for a sword of an unusual length, which he constantly wore when he went abroad, had no inclination for fighting, and declined an answer. The demand for satisfaction was followed by several attempts on the part of Akenside to see Ballow at his lodgings, but he kept close till, by the interposition of friends, the difference could be adjusted. By his conduct in this business Akenside acquired but little reputation for courage, for the accommodation was not brought about by any concessions of his adversary, but by a resolution from which neither of them would depart, for one would not fight in the morning, nor the other in the afternoon."Covers darkened at spine and a little scuffed and rubbed at edges. Very good, internally bright, copy. Scarce.

        Dissertations and Miscellaneous Pieces relating to the History and Antiquities, the Arts, Sciences, and Literature, of Asia.

      1793 - London, Printed for G. Nicol, 1792. Two volumes, 8vo. Contemporary tree calf, contrasting lettering pieces to spines; pp. [xii], 420; [viii], 411; wear to joints, and extremities; internally rather clean; provenance: mid 20th-century bookplates of David Arthur Pailin, Manchester University professor of religion and theology, writer on theism. First edition. 'Jones founded the Bengal Asiatic Society in 1784 in an attempt to convey to the Western world some idea of the richness of Indian and Arabian culture. Based on a thorough knowledge of Sanskrit, his contributions to the Society - including comparative essays on the Arabs, the Persians, the Tartars, the Chinese, the Hindus, and their literatures - mark an era in the study of the Indian languages, literature, and philosophy' (DNB). These two volumes deal much with Indo-Chinese cultural interchange and the region between the two cultures, the Himalayas and their rich culture and believe systems, including the first published account of Tibet and Bhutan by an Englishman, Captain Samuel Turner, who was sent there by Warren Hastings. The Dissertations and Miscellaneous Pieces contain Turner’s letters to John Macpherson, the Governor-General of Bengal, relating his interview with Teeshoo Lama at the Monastery of Terpaling, and a travelogue of a journey to Tibet made by Poorungeer, a Gosseyn, and his reception by the Lama. Turner’s full report was not published until 1800. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Ausführung des Plans und Zweks Jesu. In Briefen an Wahrheit forschende Leser.

      Berlin, August Mylius 1791-1793. - Goedeke IV,825,70 (Bd 1-8). ADB 1,722f. ). Meusel. Verst. Teutsche Schriftsteller 1,145f. ? der evangelische Theologe und radikale Aufklärungsschriftsteller K. F. Bahrdt (1740-1792) versucht in vorl., in 32 Briefen gegliederte, ?Ausführung des Plans und Zwecks Jesu? eine naturalistische, von deistischem Gedankengut getragene, Interpretation der Lebensgeschichte Jesu. Der Autor wurde, auf Grund seiner freizügigen Lebensführung u. nicht zuletzt wegen einer umstrittenen Bibelübersetzung, jeder theologischen Tätigkeit enthoben und 1789 wegen einer vom ihm verfassten Satire gegen das preußische Religionsedikt zu Festungsarrest verurteilt. - "Endlich in seiner "Ausführung des Plans und Zweckes Jesu" (1783) erscheint B., dem alten Freimaurer und Gründer der deutschen Union, gleichsam einer Fortsetzung des Illuminatenordens, Jesus als Stifter einer geheimen Ordensgesellschaft mit drei Graden, bestimmt das heilige Depot der vernünftigen Religion im Stillen zu verwahren, um es gegen Aberglauben und Priesterbetrug zu schützen, wie denn auch schon Moses mittelst einer Art von Maurerei und durch Geheimnisse die Israeliten vom Joch der Aegypter befreite. An den Ordensbrüdern hatte Jesus willige Werkzeuge, die bei den wunderbar scheinenden Handlungen und besonders zur Zeit seines Leidens und Sterbens als stärkende Engel und als Engel in Weißen Kleidern sich thätig erwiesen. Nach der scheinbaren Himmelfahrt lebte Jesus als unbekannter Oberer im Cercle einer Mutterloge fort, in welche noch Paulus aufgenommen wurde. Wie hier B. das Leben des Herrn in einen abenteuerlich sentimentalen Roman verwandelt hat, so war er selbst ein abenteuernder, immer tiefer sinkender Libertin, lustig im Leben, leicht und Alles nur anstreifend in der Wissenschaft." (ADB 1, S. 772-774). 8°. 12 Tle in 6 Bd. Bd 1. 2. 254 S., S. 257-476; 3. 4. S.477-700, 254 S.; 5. 6. S. 257-480, S. 481-720; 7. 8. 238 S., 222 S.; 9. 10. 224 S., 222 S.; 11. 12. 206 S., 156 S. Sehr gut erhaltene hellbraune Lederbände d. Zeit, mit je zwei Rückenschildchen u. floraler Rückenverzierung in Goldprägung. Seiten etwas gebräunt, sonst fast fleckenlos. Mit Schriftzug v. alter Hand auf jedem Innendeckel, e. Besitzervermerk auf jedem Titelblatt, sowie einer handschriftlichen Autorenangabe am Titelblatt d. ersten Bändchens.
