        IN MORTE DI UGO BASS-VILLE SEGUITA IN ROMA IL DI XIV GENNARO MDCCXCIII CANTICA

      1793. In 8. Dim. 21,5x14 cm. Pp. 74+LXXX. Rarissima edizione princeps dell'opera antirivoluzionaria dedicata alla morte di Ugo Bassville scritta da Vincenzo Monti (1754-1828). Ugo Bassville si recò a Roma con l'incarico di negoziare la riapertura delle relazioni diplomatiche fra la corte pontificia e il governo rivoluzionario di Parigi ma sfortunatamente durante il tragitto venne assalito dal popolo romano e ferito mortalmente a sassate. Monti decise di scrivere quest'opera per giustificare in qualche modo l'accaduto: immagina che l'anima del morto condanni gli orrori della Rivoluzione Francese. L'opera venne pubblicata per la prima volta totalmente anonima nel 1793 a fascicoli che uscirono in periodi differenti, lo stesso anno venne pubblicata la seconda edizione Romana e una lombarda. Presenti dati editoriali a pag. XXXVI (Roma, presso Luigi Perego Salvioni). Questa copia è del tutto identica alla editio princeps, solamente risultano mancanti quattro pagine non numerate che fungevano da occhietto ai canti dell'opera (es. canto terzo "gli altri di daranno in appresso"), carte che potevano sembrare insignificanti dal punto di vista editoriale e probabilmente gettate via dal vecchio proprietario. E' presente anche la seconda strofa a pag. 23, versi mancanti nella seconda edizione romana (mancante peraltro delle quattro carte non numerate introduttive ai canti). L'ultima pagina LXXX termina con una frase tagliata a metà, tuttavia l'opera editorialmente è completa, lo scritto completo verrà pubblicato solamente nel 1821. Dedica manoscritta al piatto anterirore datata 1863. In buone condizioni. Raro, alto valore Copertina morbida editoriale con dorso ricoperto da carta moderna in buone condizioni generali con lievi usure ai margini e dorso. Legatura in discrete condizioni con lievi rotture. All'interno le pagine si presentano in buone condizioni con fioriture. Segno di tarlo al margine di piegatura di tutto il volume senza perdita di testo. Very scarce editio princeps of the anti-revolutionary work dedicated to the death of Ugo Bassville written by Vincenzo Monti (1754-1828). Ugo Bassville went in Rome with the charge to negotiate the reopening of the diplomatic relations among the papal court and the revolutionary government of Paris. Unfortunately he was killed by roman inhabitants. Monti decided to write this work to justify the happening: he imagines that the soul of Bassville condamns the horrors of french revolution. The work was published for the first time totally anonymous in 1793 in pamphlets published in different periods, the same year was published the second roman edition and another edition. Editorial data are in page XXXVI (Roma, presso Luigi Perego Salvioni). This copy is totally equal to the editio princeps, but 4 not numbered pages are missing, that are the introductive pages to the chants of the work (e.g. third chant "gli altri di daranno in appresso"), pages that could seem insignificant from an editorial point of view and probably thrown by the ex owner. In this copy there is also the second strophe in pag. 23, verses missing in the second roman edition (in which the four numbered pages introductive to chants are missing). The last page LXXX finishes with a not complete sentence, but the work is complete from an editorial point of view, the complete writing will be published only in 1821. Manuscripted dedication in the internal part of front plate dated 1863. In good conditions. Scarce copy, high value. Soft cartonated cover with spien covered by paper in good general conditions slightly worn in the edges and spine. Binding in fair conditions with slight cracks. Inside pages are in good conditions with foxings. Worming in the folding edge of the whole volume with no loss of text.

        Décrets touchant au Siège de Toulon.

      A Saint Jean dAngély, Jean-Baptiste Josserand, 1793. 1793 3 cahiers in-8° de 2, 5 et 3 pp. Ensemble de trois rares documents officiels, relatifs à la reddition de Toulon aux Anglais durant la Révolution Française. Une série dinsurrection éclatent dans les villes du sud de la France à la suite de la mise en accusation des Députés Girondins le 31 mai 1793. A Toulon, les Royalistes (encore nombreux dans les rangs de la Marine), prennent le dessus. Les Révolutionnaires reprennent cependant les places qui sétaient soulevées, et devant la reprise de Marseille, les Toulonnais, de peur de la répression, se tournent vers la flotte britanno-espagnole. Les navires entrent en rade de Toulon à la fin du mois daoût. Le Siège de la ville sera confié à Bonaparte qui finit par reprendre la ville en décembre. Quinze mille personnes fuient avec les Britanniques, et sur les 7.000 habitants restant, 700 à 800 sont fusillés sommairement, et 290 autres condamnations suivront. Suite à la destruction et à la prise des vaisseaux par les Britanniques des vaisseaux qui étaient en rade, la Royal Navy domine la Méditerranée. Les trois décrets de la Convention Nationale présentés ici, se rapportent à cet épisode douloureux. « Contenant des mesures relatives à la trahison par laquelle le port de Toulon a été livré aux Anglais. N°1504 », publié à Saint Jean dAngély, par Jean-Baptiste Josserand, (5 pp. in-8°. Exemplaire envoyé, signé et daté par les administrateurs du directoire du district de Charente Maritime) : dans lequel Trogolf, Chaussegros et Puissan, sont déclarés traîtres à la patrie. « Qui déclare traîtres à la patrie les officiers et agens de la marine restés à Toulon, lors de la trahison de cette ville. N°1663. » (Saint Jean dAngély, 3 pp. in-8°. Exemplaire pour le conseil général du Département de la Charente inférieure. Date denregistrement manuscrite.). Bel ensemble. 3 documents 8vo. Set of three official publications regarding the Siege of Toulon by the English during the French Revolution. The French who surrendered to the English are convicted as traitors. Fine set.

        A Compendium of Military Duty, Adapted for the Militia of the United States

      Dover, NH: Eliphalet Ladd, 1793. First Edition. 8vo, pp ix, [2], 12-240, 251-305, [1] (blank). Original boards (tree calf), nineteenth or early twentieth century rebacking with new leather spine and endpapers. Bookplate of Mann S. Valentine (founder of the Valentine Museum in Richmond, VA) apparently transferred from original front endpaper to the new one. Corners worn, spine scuffed. Ink stamp of the Valentine Museum on title page, otherwise unmarked and clean. Very good. Rawson (1759-1794) was a New Hampshire attorney who served in the Revolutionary War and was later an aid to New Hampshire Governor Gen. John Sullivan. This work consists of extracts from notable authorities on military matters, including Baron von Steuben, the Chevalier de la Valiere, and others. Rawson remarks in the Preface that while practical experience is critical for a true understanding of the art of war, "surely to inform young and inexperienced officers of the duties of a military life cannot be thought a fruitless undertaking--for 'books oftimes give us those influences in private, which we are not always willing to take from other men, for fear of being thought ignorant'--and though our desire of information might overcome our pride, yet we may not always find those who are either capable or willing to give us instruction." The work is divided into three sections, addressing the general duties of different types of soldiers; the "maneouvers and evolutions of the infantry, artillery and cavalry upon the plan laid down for the army of the United States, upon the Prussian system; and "some particular instructions to officers of partizan corps, interspersed with historical facts, anecdotes, etc." Sabin 68016.

        Reisen eines Deutschen in Italien in den Jahren 1786 bis 1788. 3 Bände. 5 Bl., 224 S.; 1 Bl., 238 S.; 1 Bl., 304 S., 8 Bl. Mit 4 Kupfertafeln von Berger nach Lütke, davon 3 als Frontispiz. Halblederbde d. frühen 20. Jahrh. mit alten Rückenschildern.

      Berlin, Friedrich Maurer, 1792-1793. - Erste Ausgabe der wichtigen Reisebeschreibung. "Moritz gehörte zu Goethes engstem Freundeskreis in Rom. Er hatte, als er Goethes Bekanntschaft machte, von seinem autobiographischen Roman 'Anton Reiser' drei Teile herausgegeben, die von seinen wechselhaften Jugendschicksalen Zeugnis geben. In Goethes kunsttheoretischen Schriften findet sich manche Anregung durch die Gedanken von Moritz ." (Auch ich in Arkadien, S. 125/26). Moritz beeinflusste u. a. die Umarbeitung der 'Iphigenie'; Goethe nahm einen Teil aus 'Über die bildende Nachahmung des Schönen' in seine ‚Italienische Reise‘ auf, da diese Schrift aus ihren Unterhaltungen hervorgegangen war. Im ersten Band (S. 148) berichtet Moritz über die Ankunft Goethes in Rom: "Mein hiesiger Aufenthalt hat dadurch ein neues und doppeltes Interesse für mich gewonnen. Dieser Geist ist ein Spiegel, in welchem sich mir alle Gegenstände in ihrem lebhaftesten Glanze und in ihren frischesten Farben darstellen. Der Umgang mit ihm bringt die schönsten Träume meiner Jugend in Erfüllung, und seine Erscheinung, gleich einem wohlthätigen Genius, in dieser Sphäre der Kunst, ist mir, so wie mehreren, ein unverhofftes Glück." – Exlibris Giannalisa Feltrinelli, der Mutter des berühmten Verlegers Giangiacomo Feltrinelli. Deren umfangreiche Bibliothek wurde von Christie's in den Jahren 1997-2001 aufgelöst. – Am Schluss jeweils mehrere Blatt in zeitgenössischer Handschrift: "Index Deren hierin enthaltenen Städten in was für einem Blath sie zü finden sind." Teils gebräunt, insgesamt gutes und breitrandiges Exemplar. – Goed. V 491, 17; Tresoldi 59; Meyer 417, Kippenberg I 1227 und II 5615. [Attributes: First Edition]

        AUTOGRAPH LETTER, SIGNED, FROM BENJAMIN RUSH TO DR. VALENTINE SEAMAN, DISCUSSING RECENT MEDICAL TEXTS].

      Philadelphia. June 3, 1793. - [2]pp. plus integral address leaf. Quarto. Lightly silked. A few tears and losses repaired, affecting a few words of text. Good. In a half green morocco and cloth slipcase, spine gilt. Benjamin Rush writes to fellow physician Valentine Seaman, discussing Dr. Seaman's recent work on mineral waters and other medical discourses. Seaman was the first doctor in America to teach clinical surgery, and was likewise the first to introduce vaccination, vaccinating his own children against chicken pox. Rush was a Pennsylvania physician, delegate to the Continental Congress, and signer of the Declaration of Independence. He later served as surgeon general for the Middle Department of the Continental Army, though he resigned in outrage over the disorganization and corruption in army hospitals. He established several medical facilities in Philadelphia, including the College of Physicians in 1787. "Writing prolifically over nearly half a century, Rush was the first American physician to become widely known at home and abroad. More than any other physician, Rush established the reputation of Philadelphia as a center for medical training.His drive to understand mental illness and render the treatment of mental patients more humane earned Rush the title 'father of American psychiatry'" - ANB. In this letter he writes: "Your analysis of the mineral waters at Saratoga is ingenious, and calculated to be useful. I admire the intrepidity in thinking discovered by the authors of the inaugural dissertations. I object only to the indelicate epithets with which they condemn the theories from which they dissented. In a science so difficult as medicine.even conjectures should be treated with decency. It will give me pleasure to hear of your not only rivalling your alma mater, but of your exceeding us in useful discourses. 'Ubi libertas, ibi Roma.' In like manner where there is truth, there should be the focus of all literary prejudice and attachment. I expect to commit a second volume of medical inquiries and observations to the press in a few days. "Mr. Stall, one of my pupils, will convey to you some copies of the theses of our late graduates. I beg you would continue to send me copies of all that are published in your college every year. I love to read the productions of young men. If they are destitute of new facts, they abound with new tho'ts, & are most necessary to men in the median or decline of life." A fine letter between two of the country's leading medical men.

        Single page of notes. No place or date.

      1793. 8vo. ¾ p. Notes in Swedish recording the trial and execution of several persons between October 15 and November 10, 1793. The first of these is his beloved Marie Antoinette. - Hans Axel count Fersen had fought on the French side in the American Revolution; after his return to France in 1783 he had been made commander of the Royal Swedish Regiment in the French Army by Louis XVI. In the years from 1789 onwards, Fersen, long an ardent devotee of the Queen, soon became Marie Antoinette's sole remaining close friend, acting as a liaison between the royal couple and the Swedish monarch. When Louis and Marie Antoinette finally decided to flee with their children in June 1791, it was Fersen to whom they turned for help. He lent the King the necessary funds, obtained the coach and assisted in engineering the flight which so disastrously ended with the royal family's arrest in Varennes. The King and Queen were returned to Paris, and Marie Antoinette began a clandestine, dangerous correspondence with Fersen, who had escaped to Belgium. While there is no question that Fersen deeply loved Marie Antoinette (he probably became aware of a passionate side to his admiration only in 1790) and that his feelings were increasingly returned by the imprisoned Queen, popular tradition has styled Fersen as Marie Antoinette's long-time secret paramour - a myth debunked by Vincent Cronin in his biography of "Louis and Antoinette" (the single source for this story is an account in the highly biased and unreliable memoirs of the former minister Saint-Priest, whose own wife had indeed been Fersen's mistress for a while). However, Antoinette's loyal friend Fersen secretly returned to Paris in 1792 and spent the night in the Queen's prison-like apartment in the Tuileries, and several pieces of evidence suggest that the liaison, which had been forestalled by the events of 1791, was consummated on that night of 13 February 1792. After again escaping from France, Fersen continued to fight for Marie Antoinette's release - unsuccessfully. Fersen mourned her deeply. "The Queen's face, he wrote in his diary, 'follows me wherever I go. Her suffering and death and all my feelings never leave me for a moment. I can think of nothing else [...]'" (Cronin 392). He would never marry, but "lived quietly with his sister, remembering the past. He wished that he had accompanied the King and Queen on their flight and had been killed making possible their escape. The anniversaries of their deaths he remembered devotedly" (Cronin 394f.). - Slight brownstaining, but well-preserved. Provenance: Stafsunds-Auktionen, later sold at Kvalitetsbokauktionen 23 Nov. 1988, lot 6347. A unique association piece. Cf. V. Cronin, Louis and Antoinette (1974). A.

First published in Livorno in 1764 as Dei Delitti e Delle Pene, this landmark work is, to quote Printing and the Mind of Man, "one of the most influential books in the whole history of criminology. It is significant because it was the first systematic study of the subject. Infused with the spirit of the Enlightenment, its advocacy of crime prevention and the abolition of torture and capital punishment marked a significant advance in criminological thought, which had changed little since the Middle Ages. It had a profound influence on the development of criminal law. It was especially influential among American thinkers, such as Thomas Jefferson, who wished to use Beccaria to reform the system of criminal law Americans inherited from England.

Blacklock translates Huay's book into English, An Essay On The Education Of The Blind, found in this volume. He and two others, soon found the Edinburgh Asylum for the Relief of the Indigent and Industrious Blind in 1793, which eventually becomes The Royal Blind Charity. Louis Braille will attend Huay's institute in 1824, and design the BRaille system in 1829, almost 40 years after the pioneers Huay and Blacklock. *** [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
