        An History of the River Thames

      London: Printed by W. Bulmer & Co. for John and Josiah Boydell,, 1794-6. 2 volumes, folio (416 × 314 mm). 20th-century green half morocco, raised bands, titles and panelling to compartments gilt, all edges gilt, marbled endpapers. Engraved frontispiece, 2 double-page engraved folding maps, 76 hand-coloured aquatint plates, 3 of which are folding, by J. C. Stadler after J. Farington. Spines lightly sunned, mild spotting to prelims and endmatter, minor offsetting from turn-ins and plates, occasional spotting to text blocks. An excellent set. First edition, later state watermarked 1799 and lacking the series titles and the dedication to the King. This copy from the library of John Roland Abbey (1894?-1969), the English book collector whose "colour-plate collection showed genuine originality and his catalogues represented real advances of knowledge" (ODNB). A handsome work, An History of the River Thames represents but a completed fragment of a much grander conception; "The artists, engravers, and art dealers John Boydell and his nephew Josiah, proprietors of the Shakspeare Gallery in Pall Mall, hired William Combe to write the text to accompany the illustrations engraved from the drawings by Joseph Farington, the artist and diarist, for a projected multi-volume The Picturesque Views and Scenery of the Thames and the Severn, the Forth and the Clyd, from their Sources to the Sea, illustrated with hand-coloured aquatints. The work progressed more slowly than the publishers had promised, with the first two (and ultimately only) volumes of the work, now renamed An History of the Principal Rivers of Great Britain, appearing in 1794 and 1796" (ODNB).

         Instruction sur l'établissement des nitrières et sur la fabrication du salpêtre

(restaurée en marge), - Suivi de: Barère Rapport fait au nom du Comité de Salut Public sur l'état de la fabrication révolutionnaire du salpêtre & de la poudre, & sur la nécessité de supprimer l'agence nationale, ci-devant Régie des poudres et salpêtres, séance du 17 Messidor an II. P. imp. Nat. an II (juillet 1794), de 19pp. (papier bruni) - Suivi de : Instruction sur l'existence du salpêtre dans les terres des souterreins et sur quelques procédés à suivre dans le traitement de ces terres. Imprimé par ordre du Comité de Salut Public. à Villefranche imp. Pinet, an II, (1794) de 7pp., - Suivi de : Lavoisier (Ant. L.), B. G. Sage & (Léon) de Perthuis L'art de fabriquer le salin et la potasse, suivi des expériences sur les moyens de multiplier la fabrication de la potasse... pour faire suite à l'ouvrage intitulé : Instruction sur l'établissement des Nitrières & sur la fabrication du Salpêtre. P. chez Cuchet, an II, (1794) de VIII-106pp., ill. de 4 planches gravées se dépl. et un tableau dépl., le tout relié en 1 vol. pl. veau marbré époque, dos orné. Bel exemplaire Important recueil consacré au salpêtre pour la poudre des armes à feu. Avant la Révolution, plus de la moitié du salpêtre employé en France provenait d'Inde via des importateurs anglais. Du fait du blocus, cette source était désormais impossible. De fait la production nationale de salpêtre, principalement d'Anjou, va ainsi passer en 1794 de 4 millions de livres obtenus par la Régie à près de 18 millions. A partir de 1776 Lavoisier, premier régisseur des poudres et salpêtres, occupe des appartements dans l'hôtel des Régisseurs au Petit Arsenal. Il y a aménagé sous les combles un vaste laboratoire, l'un des mieux équipés d'Europe. "L'instruction" de Lavoisier avait d'abord paru en 1777, mais elle était rarissime et introuvable comme le stipule la préface "... il est même douteux que cette instruction ait été répandue: nous sommes d'autant plus porté à le croire qu'elle est très rare; elle n'existoit pas même à la Bibliothèque nationale il y a quelques mois...". ¶ Duveen & Klickstein n°208 "This is an octavo reissue (1794) of the original quarto edition published 17 years earlier (1777).." - n°214 "The first part of this work is actually a reissue of the complete 1779 text of l'art de fabriquer le Salin et la Potasse (by Lavoisier)... added to this are an account of experiments made by Pertuis... Credit for the entire wrok, probably, has to be givent to Lavoisier." - Martin & Walter IV2. 7776 (anonyme) - I. 1661 (Barère) - "L'intruction sur l'existence du salpêtre" n'est pas dans Martin & Walter, et le cat. CCFR ne signale que 4 ex. d'impressions provinciales, mais pas cette édition de Villefranche.

        1794 ‘A MAP OF THE TENNASSEE GOVERNMENT FORMERLY PART OF NORTH CAROLINA’ Joseph Scott FRAMED [First American Map of Tennessee]

      Philadelphia: Mathew Carey, 1794. 1st Edition. Other Other. Very Good. (Maps) SMITH, Gen. Daniel; SCOTT, Joseph T.; ET AL. A MAP OF THE TENNASSEE GOVERNMENT FORMERLY PART OF NORTH CAROLINA taken Chiefly from Surveys by Genl. D. Smith & others. Philadelphia: Mathew Carey, 1794. Engraved for inclusion in Carey's American Edition of Guthrie's ‘Geography Improved’. Map measures 9.75 x 20.5 in.; framed piece measures 18.25 x 28.5 in. Uncolored. Prior fold lines faintly visible. Very Good condition. The first American map of Tennessee, this piece shows rivers, mountains, wilderness, 'Public Roads,' and the few white settlements in the territory are indicated, including Knoxville and Nashville. Also shown are towns and lands of the Native Americans. Later printings of this map changed the title to “Tennasee State” instead of “Tennassee Government” and delineated several counties in eastern Tennessee which are not depicted here. Mathew Carey was the first American cartographic publisher and one of the seminal figures in early American cartography. Carey's map was the first map of Tennessee to be based on actual surveys, mostly the work of General Daniel Smith. Smith was one of the Virginia members on the 1779-80 Virginia-North Carolina border commission and later succeeded Andrew Jackson as United States Senator.

Encuadernación holandesa piel de época con nervios, dorados y tejuelos en el lomo. Conservación: Buen estado, tiene sellos de biblioteca cancelados y algunas hojas con oxido, en general buen estado, con amplios margenes. Revisado completo. Notas:Durante el siglo XVIII surge en toda Europa un gran interés político por los viajes científicos. Ambiciosos proyectos de exploración tienen el respaldo oficial de los gobiernos lo que supone un estímulo para el progreso científico. Patrocinados por la Corona española, Hipólito Ruiz y José Pavón, comienzan uno de los proyectos más importantes y ambiciosos de la Historia Natural española: la expedición botánica a Perú y Chile. Esta expedición, que se realizó en colaboración con Francia, duró más de diez años, a lo largo de los cuales los botánicos españoles recogerán información de gran número de especies vegetales que se reflejarán en dibujos y grabados. Los expedicionarios parten del puerto de Cádiz en octubre de 1777. Durante su estancia en Perú y Chile recolectan numerosas muestras que llevan a la metrópoli en forma de grandes colecciones de herbarios, ilustraciones botánicas, descripciones de plantas, así como otros materiales zoológicos, etnográfico, mineralógicos y arqueológicos recogidos a su paso por tierras americanas. A su vuelta a España, los botánicos y pintores que habían participado en la expedición comienzan a trabajar sobre los materiales recolectados. En 1792 ocupan una sede propia, la Oficina de la Flora americana cuya misión será cobijar las colecciones de historia natural procedentes de "las expediciones y facilitar así su publicación. En 1798, seis años después del inicio de los trabajos en Madrid, aparece el primer volumen de laFloraen la imprenta de Gabriel de Sancha, hijo del famoso impresor Antonio de Sancha. El tomo segundo se publica en 1799 y el tercero y último en agosto de 1802. El plan de la obra sigue cuidadosas instrucciones. La descripción literaria debe ir acompañada de dibujos lo más cercanos posibles al natural, su representación debe de ser lo más científica posible de manera que permita la correcta identificación y clasificación de las plantas. Dibujantes y grabadores serán dirigidos por los propios botánicos. Un equipo de profesionales vinculados a la Real Academia de Bellas Artes de San Fernando fueron los encargados de los grabados e iluminación de las láminas de la Flora. Intervinieron en el proceso 51 grabadores que realizaron las 325 estampas que acompañan las 751 descripciones botánicas de la que es, sin duda, una de las obras científicas más bellas de la imprenta española.

        The Banished Man, A Novel.

      T. Cadell, Jun. and W. Davis, London 1794 - In four volumes. Vol. I. Half-title, xi, errata, p.39 mis-numbered 93, 233. Vol. II. Lacks half title, xii, 236pp.; Vol. III- Half-title, 224pp.; and Vol. IV. Half-title, 340pp with last leaf in facsimile (p. 39-40) laid in. Bound in full contemporary tree calf, flat spines, fully gilt decorated with red and black contrasting morocco spine labels gilt, spine ends with some light chipping, upper joint to volume four split but holding well, scattered foxing or browning to text but mostly clean. Contemporary owner’s gift inscription. A very scarce work locating only six copies via OCLC. Charlotte Smith, both a novelist and a poet was arguably the most important figure in the revival of the sonnet during the Romantic era in Great Britain, c. 1775-1835 She was also a major influence on Jane Austen’s works, one in particular was her novel titled "Persuasion" which of course was published long after Smith‘s death. Both The Banished Man and Persuasion are set against the background of war with France. The similarities between the two novels suggest that Jane Austen may have used Smith’s family The Ellesmeres as a starting point from which to develop her Elliot Family. Smith was also an author of works for children, with settings in natural history. Smith’s works were also famous (often considered infamous) for their highly personal and autobiographical indignities to which she was subjected. She notes these injustices in the preface of the present work. Her life of disappointments and hardships made her a remarkably strong woman that evidenced a marvelous intellect and radical views of the social and political system that destined most women toward a powerless existence. By the age of 15, Charlotte was pressed into bad marriage, bore 12 children and lived in poverty with a husband she eventually left. [Derry, Stephen.

        Grundlage der gesamten Wissenschaftslehre. Erstausgabe 1794/1795

      Christian Ernst Gabler 1794 Leipzig. Halbleder Das Buch "Grundlage der gesammten Wissenschaftslehre" von 1794/95 ist Fichtes Hauptwerk geblieben... Anläßlich der Berufung nach Jena entstand das Buch sehr übereilt, ohne daß die neue Konzeption ausreifen konnte. Es wurde bogenweise für die Studenten gedruckt... (Quelle: Peter Rohs: Johann Gottlieb Fichte) Inhalt Vorrede [Iena zur Ostermesse 1795] Erster Theil: Grundsätze der gesammten Wissenschaftslehre Zweiter Theil: Grundlage des theoretischen Wissens Dritter Theil: Grundlage des Wissens des Praktischen Errata (auf der letzten Seite, recht umfangreich) Das Buch wurde eigens für eine Person mit den Initialen "R. v S." gebunden, die auf dem Buchrücken unten in Gold eingeprägt sind. Der Halblederband mit lederverstärkten Ecken ist für das Alter in ausgezeichnetem Zustand; der goldgeprägte Rücken ("Fichtes Wissenschaftslehre", "R. v S.", Ornamente) ist nur leicht abgeschabt, minimale Anstoßungen/Abschabungen an den Ecken/Kanten. Der pastellgrüne Rundumschnitt ist schön, oben etwas angestaubt, unten mit minimalen Einkerbungen. Innendeckel und Vorsätze, ebenfalls in pastellgrün, sind leimfleckig, jeweils mit einem handschr. Zahlenvermerk in Bleistift; auf dem vorderen Innendeckel ist - wahrscheinlich ein Besitzervermerk - mit Tinte/Tusche großflächig unkenntlich gemacht. Die Seiten sind durchgängig sehr gut, allenfalls leicht gedunkelt, wenn Flecken, dann im Papier, das im übrigen hin und wieder zeittypische kleine Qualitätsfehler aufweist. Die Seiten sind unbeschädigt, selten minimale Gebrauchsspuren an den Ecken und bei einigen Seiten am unteren Schnitt. Sehr schönes Stück in Sammlerqualität!. 339S. ca. 19,8 x 12,5 cm

        Reliques of Ancient English Poetry Consisting of Old Heroic Ballads, Songs, and other Pieces of our earlier Poets, Together with some few of later Date

      London: Printed by John Nichols, for F. and C. Rivington. MDCCXCIV (1794). 3 vols., 8vo, [4], [vii]-cxiii, [1], 382; [2], v-vii, [1], 405, [1]; [2], v-xlvi, 368pp. Lacking half-titles.

Full blue morocco extra, backstrips faded, raised bands, lettered in gilt, gilt edges, a very good set. Fourth edition, with the first cancels as called for in ESTC (see below) of this famous book. The first edition of this classic collection has a few poems not found in later editions. It was ?received with contempt by critics such as Johnson, Ritson and Warburton for its obvious scholastic errors and self-evident tamperings with the texts - so evident that Ritson refused to believe the manuscript in fact existed - it nonetheless found an immediate and enduring audience.? It "made an epoch in the history of English literature" and "promoted with lasting effect the revival of interest in our older poetry" (see DNB). Each volume contains a glossary of obsolete Scottish words at the back. ESTC notes various cancels: Vol.1, p. 61 is a cancel, line 2 reads: ".. fare .." ; vol. 2, p. 111, is a cancel, line 4 begins "by the addition"; vol. 2, p. 206 is a cancel, line 1 ends "tois vntried"; vol. 3, p. 351 is a cancel, line 6 reads: ".. thene as ..". Variant 1: vol. 1, p. 61 is a cancel; vol. 2, p. 111, is a cancel; vol. 2, p. 206 line 1 ends: "joyes untried .."; vol. 3, p. 351 is a cancel. Variant 2: vol. 1, p. 61, line 2 reads: ".. faire .."; vol. 2, p. 111, is a cancel; vol. 2, p. 206 line 1 ends "joyes untried"; vol. 3, p. 351 is a cancel line 6.

Slight foxing & soiling but very good. 19th century signature and bookplate of Richard Kneeshaw; library bookplate and stamp.First Edition. This untitled article was the first report published in Europe of the Indian forehead-flap method of rhinoplasty. "B. L.'s" report in The Gentleman's Magazine of the curious operation of making a nose from a forehead flap, accompanied by an engraving of the patient Cowasjee with restored nose and showing the stages of the operation, sparked Western interest in plastic operations. This interest culminated in Carpue's successes with the Indian method in 1814-1816 (Garrison-Morton 5737) which were the turning point in the development of modern plastic surgery. Gnudi & Webster 309-16 & fig. 47 reproducing the famous Cowasjee plate. McDowell 74-88, reproducing plate. Zeis / Patterson 438, also noting a later article on p. 1093 calling attention to European rhinoplasty and Tagliacozzi.

        Früher eigenhändiger Brief ohne Unterschrift an einen Grafen.

      Mannheim, 1794 - Mannheim, 30.1.1794. 23 x 19 cm. 4 S. auf Doppelbogen Hadernbütten mit Wasserzeichen. gute Erhaltung. Montgelas war von 1799 bis 1817 Minister und dem Kurfürsten und späteren König von Bayern Maximilian I. 1786 trat M. in den Dienst des Herzogs Karl II. August von Pfalz-Zweibrücken. Als die Franzosen 1793 Zweibrücken besetzten, blieb M. nach der Flucht Karls als herzoglicher Beamter zurück, um zwischen den fremden Truppen und der Bevölkerung zu vermitteln. Bei Karl II. fiel er in Ungnade, nachdem er sich unter Rettung des herzoglichen Archivs nach Mannheim durchgeschlagen hatte. Nach Karls Tod stellte dessen Bruder und Nachfolger Max Joseph 1796 M. als politischen Berater ein und nahm ihn 1799 mit nach München. Übersetzung: . Die Franzosen haben das Schloss von Worms angezündet, haben einen großen Teil der Kontribution, die sie den Einwohner auferlegt hatten, erhoben, und haben danach diesen Ort am 24. dieses Monats verlassen. Briefe des Generals Graf von Isenburg, der in Ihrem Hauptquartier Mainz ist, kündigen die Räumung von Frankenthal für heute an. Die Dörfer jenseits des Rheins, die zu uns am nächsten sind, sind immer noch vom Feind besetzt. Ihre Exzellenz kennen die Geschichte von Fort Louis. Man weiß nicht genau, wo die Hauptmacht der französischen Truppen ist, und ihr Hauptquartier. Uns ist gestern ein Bataillon Bayern angekommen, wir erwarten für heute ein zweites, so sehr wie es gestattet ist, nach dem Anschein zu urteilen. Denn Sie wissen, Monsieur le Comte, dass derartig außergewöhnliche Dinge geschehen, dass es unmöglich wird, etwas vorherzusehen. Der Feldzug scheint auf unseren Seiten beendet zu sein. Man hat Unruhen in Italien und den Niederlanden. Die Landung der Engländer in C. war erneut in einem Brief aus London angekündigt worden, der dem General Prinz von Waldeck zugekommen ist, aber ich bezweifle noch, dass dies Erfolg hat. Wir wurden darüber so oft getäuscht, dass es sehr wohl erlaubt ist, nicht mehr leicht daran zu glauben. Dies wäre jedoch das einzige und wahre Mittel, uns das Ende zu verschaffen, dass wir alle so sehr wünschen müssen, und so wie wir Grund haben, es zu wünschen. Eine Versammlung so nahe der Hauptstadt und unterstützt von den Unzufriedenen des Inlandes hätte mehr Wirkung als der notwendigerweise blutige, lange und kostspielige Angriff der Grenzen. Die zwei Generale sind noch nicht eingetroffen. Es tut mir leid, es zu schreiben, aber von den Kommandanten bis zum letzten Soldat ist nur ein Schrei nach Frieden. Sie rufen nach ihm mit all ihrer Kraft und sind der Feindseligkeiten sehr müde. Ich bitte Ihre Exzellenz diese Einzelheit für sich zu behalten, aber die Beobachtung ist genau, und ich weiß, dass Sie ein getreues Bild mögen. Viele beginnen daran zu zweifeln, dass der König zur Armee kommt. Man spricht von Verhandlungen und . zwischen Ihrem Hof und jenem von Wien zugunsten des ersteren. Was hat es mit den russischen Bewaffnungen am Schwarzen Meer auf sich? Möchte die große Katharina den Besonderheiten dieses schrecklichen Jahrhundertendes die Krone aufsetzen, indem sie den günstigen Augenblick nutzt, um ihr berühmtes orientalischen System zu verwirklichen? Der liebe Onkel war zwei Tage lang krank . Unser Meister ist wegen einer starken Erkältung unpäßlich, die, ohne dass sie gefährlich wäre, ihn gezwungen hat, seine Reise nach München zu verschieben. Die bittersten Gedanken drängen sich über die elende Lage auf, in der wir uns befinden, und die sehr realen Gefahren, in denen sich die bürgerliche Gesellschaft befindet. Mein Herz ist schwer wegen dem was ich verliere, wegen dem, was ich erleide, mehr noch wegen dem, was ich fürchte. Es wird mir letztendlich ein großer Trost sein . zu erfahren, Monsieur le Comte, dass Sie ruhig und zufrieden sind, und Sie mich beständig mit einer Freundschaft beehren, die mein Glück und mein Trost sein wird.

Lacks half title, xii, 236pp.; Vol. III- Half-title, 224pp.; and Vol. IV. Half-title, 340pp with last leaf in facsimile (p. 39-40) laid in.

Contemporary owner?'s gift inscription. A very scarce work locating only six copies via OCLC. Charlotte Smith, both a novelist and a poet was arguably the most important figure in the revival of the sonnet during the Romantic era in Great Britain, c. 1775-1835 She was also a major influence on Jane Austen?'s works, one in particular was her novel titled "Persuasion" which of course was published long after Smith?'s death. Both The Banished Man and Persuasion are set against the background of war with France. The similarities between the two novels suggest that Jane Austen may have used Smith?'s family The Ellesmeres as a starting point from which to develop her Elliot Family. Smith was also an author of works for children, with settings in natural history. Smith?'s works were also famous (often considered infamous) for their highly personal and autobiographical indignities to which she was subjected. She notes these injustices in the preface of the present work. Her life of disappointments and hardships made her a remarkably strong woman that evidenced a marvelous intellect and radical views of the social and political system that destined most women toward a powerless existence. By the age of 15, Charlotte was pressed into bad marriage, bore 12 children and lived in poverty with a husband she eventually left. [Derry, Stephen. "The Ellesmeres and the Elliots: Charlotte Smith?'s Influence on Persuasion." (1990): 69-70.]. First Edition. 12mo.

        THIRD CONGRESS OF THE UNITED STATES...AN ACT MAKING FURTHER PROVISION FOR SECURING AND COLLECTING THE DUTIES ON FOREIGN AND DOMESTIC DISTILLED SPIRITS, STILLS, WINES AND TEAS [caption title]

      Philadelphia. 1794.. [4]pp. Folio. Soiling and foxing, particularly to the last page. Old fold lines. About very good. An Act passed by the Third Congress, just as the insurrection which later became known as the Whiskey Rebellion was fomenting; this law was the final straw which prompted the Rebellion. Among other things, this Act requires licensing of all stills and subjects any which are not licensed to forfeiture and confiscation. George Washington's presidential message of November 22, 1792 advocated a tax on distilled spirits, and Alexander Hamilton was a strong proponent of the whiskey excise tax, which was part of his overall plan for putting the federal government on a sound fiscal basis. As with many of his other proposals, it aroused bitter opposition in some quarters. Some objected that it laid federal taxes which properly belong to the states, while frontier representatives considered themselves singled out for an onerous tax. The impact of the whiskey revenue took several years to take full effect while the system of collectors was installed. Growing resistance to the tax continued to develop through the summer of 1794, when the Whiskey Rebellion began, finally set off by this liscencing law. Congress repealed the excise tax on distilled spirits in March 1797, effectively ending the cause of the revolt. "Approved - June the fifth 1794," and signed in print by Speaker of the House Frederick Augustus Muhlenberg, Vice President John Adams, and President George Washington. Variant issues of the Acts of the Third Congress are known, and this is the issue which ends with the printed lines, "Deposited among the Rolls in the Office of the Secretary of State" and "Secretary of State," and is signed in manuscript by the second Secretary of State Edmund Randolph. NAIP notes five copies, including the one at the University of Michigan which is listed on OCLC. Edmund Randolph became the second Secretary of State on Jan. 2, 1794, succeeding Thomas Jefferson, who resigned at the end of 1793. He continued the practice begun in the First Congress of the Secretary of State signing a small number of "official" copies of Congressional acts for distribution to the States and important government officials. After the Third Congress, official acts were no longer signed in manuscript by the Secretary of State. EVANS 27868. NAIP w014557. OCLC 166618093.

        Landschaft mit Burg, auf einem Weg ein Fuhrwerk mit einem Planwagen.

      . Feder in Dunkelbraun, braun laviert, auf Bütten mit Wasserzeichen: J. Whatman 1794. 16,4:20,6 cm. Verso mit Sammlervermerk "Philipp". Nicht bei Fröhlich.. Nach einer Buchbinderlehre als Zwölfjähriger in Dresden absolvierte Klengel, Sohn eines aus Grüneberg bei Radeberg stammenden Mälzers und Bierbrauers, mit Unterstützung Chr.L. von Hagedorns (1712-1789) eine Zeichenausbildung an der Dresdener Kunstakademie bei Chr.G. Mietzsch (1742-1799) und Ch.F. Hutin (1715-1776) sowie bei J.F.A. Thiele (1747-1803) und B. Bellotto (1720-1780). 1768-1774 folgte eine Lehre bei Chr.W.E. Dietrich (1712-1774), der zu den wichtigsten Künstlern des sächsischen Hofes gehörte. 1772, Klengel zählte zu diesem Zeitpunkt erst 21 Jahre, erhielt er eine kurfürstliche Unterstützung von 50 Talern - er wurde als Nachfolger von J. Roos (1726-1805) an der Akademie ins Auge gefaßt -, die im darauffolgenden Jahr und erneut 1774 erhöht wurde, ohne daß er besondere Leistungen dafür erbringen mußte. 1777 wurde Klengel Mitglied und Lehrer der Dresdener Akademie, jedoch erfolgte erst 1799 die Ernennung zum außerordentlichen, 1816 zum ordentlichen Professor. Die Ehrenmitgliedschaft der Berliner Akademie erhielt er bereits 1786. In den Jahren 1790-1792 unternahm er die langersehnte Studienreise nach Rom. Seit spätestens 1808 litt er zunehmend unter gesundheitlichen Beschwerden, Gicht und Asthma, wiederholte Kuraufenthalte in Teplitz folgten 1814 und 1822. Klengel war als Landschafts- und Tiermaler, als Zeichner, Radierer und Lithograph tätig und bildete eine große Anzahl auch bedeutender Schüler aus. Er gab mehrere Radierungsfolgen mit eigenen Landschaftsbildern und nach Zeichnungen von Dietrich sowie eine Anleitung für Landschaftszeichner heraus.

        Anna Selbdritt vor einem skizzenhaft angedeuteten architektonischen Hintergrund.

      - Bleistift, auf Velin. 33,2:24,7 cm. Insgesamt etwas fleckig, kleine Quetschfalte im oberen Rand. Provenienz: Sammlung Ignaz Dornach, Weiler bei Lindau, nicht bei Lugt. Marie Ellenrieder wurde von dem Konstanzer Miniaturmaler J. Einsle (1794 – nach 1850) unterrichtet. Danach erhielt sie als erste Frau die Zulassung zum Kunststudium an der Akademie in München. Anschließend wurde sie Porträtmalerin an südwestdeutschen Fürstenhöfen (Hohenzollerischer Hof in Sigmaringen, Fürstenbergischer Hof in Donaueschingen), ebenso malte sie religiöse Themen. 1822-1824 hielt sie sich in Rom auf, dort machte sie die Bekanntschaft von Louise Seidler (1786-1866) sowie von F. Overbeck (1789-1869) und weiteren Nazarenern; häufig ausbleibende Anerkennung durch ihre männlichen deutsch-römischen Kollegen führte jedoch zur Ausbildung einzelgängerischen Verhaltens. Ein einjähriger Aufenthalt in Florenz folgte. Nach ihrer Rückkehr nach Baden ist die nahezu ausschließliche Fokussierung auf religiöse Kunst zu beobachten. Seit 1829 lebte sie in Karlsruhe und wurde zur großherzoglich-badischen Hofmalerin ernannt. Reisen nach Zürich, Dresden und München folgten. Ab den 1830er Jahren folgte durch eine schon seit dem ersten Italienaufenthalt in selbstzerstörerische Selbstanklagen und Depressionen fallende Gemütslage sowie durch Ablehnung und Verleugnung der eigenen Sinnlichkeit und Körperlichkeit und Zweifel an den eigenen künstlerischen Leistungen die zunehmende Abkehr vom gesellschaftlich-öffentlichen Leben. 1834/35 kehrte sie nach Konstanz zurück. 1838-1840 unternahm sie die zweite Italienreise. In den 40er und 50er Jahren gelingt es ihr, nach Jahren mit Krankheit und Depressionen, erneut zu ihrer schöpferischen Kraft zurückzufinden.

This untitled article was the first report published in Europe of the Indian forehead-flap method of rhinoplasty. "B. L.'s" report in The Gentleman's Magazine of the curious operation of making a nose from a forehead flap, accompanied by an engraving of the patient Cowasjee with restored nose and showing the stages of the operation, sparked Western interest in plastic operations. This interest culminated in Carpue's successes with the Indian method in 1814-1816 (Garrison-Morton 5737) which were the turning point in the development of modern plastic surgery. Gnudi & Webster 309-16 & fig. 47 reproducing the famous Cowasjee plate. McDowell 74-88, reproducing plate.

        An Essay on the Picturesque, as Compared with the Sublime and Beautiful; and, on the Use of Studying Pictures, for the Purpose of Improving Real Landscape, 1794 BOUND WITH: WITH: A Letter to Uvedale Price, Esq London: Printed [for the Author] by G Nicol, 1794 PRESENTATION COPY WITH: Essays on the Picturesque [ ] Vol II, 1798

      London: J. Robson [and D. Walker], 1794 [and 1798]. FIRST EDITIONS. Two octavo volumes. xv, [1], 288, 20; xxvii, [1], 432 pages. Uniformly bound in contemporary full speckled calf with morocco spine labels and gilt titles. Hinges rubbed, scuffing with some abrading to corners. Offsetting to endpapers. Mild toning with some occasional minor foxing. Copious notations throughout and to endpapers. A very good set First Edition of both volumes of Price's most important contribution to the Picturesque movement, in which Price expresses his view that landscaping should incorporate existing trees and paths, instead of sweeping these away for new planting. Ours appears to be the only copy currently on the market. OUR SET ALSO CONTAINS A PRESENTATION COPY OF REPTON'S "LETTER TO UVEDALE PRICE" (London, 1794), here in First Edition; again, ours is apparently the only copy currently on the market (signed or unsigned). "While Sir Uvedale Price was not the first critic in the history of British eighteenth-century aesthetic theory to write about the picturesque and its relation to the fine and useful arts, he was the concept's most discerning, sensible, evocative, and influential explicator. As art historians and architectural historians, we can still learn much from the dialectic in Price's writings between accident and order, between emotion and principles, as he applied it to his analyses of the picturesque, and from his independent refusal to succumb to the fallacies of contemporary historicism in practice and theory" (Marcia Allentuck, "Sir Uvedale Price and the Picturesque Garden" in: The Picturesque Garden and its Influence outside the British Isles (Dumbarton Oaks, 1974). Price's "Essays" are primary documents of the Picturesque movement spearheaded by Edmund Burke and William Gilpin. This book was an attempt to discredit Capability Brown's theories of invasive landscaping. Price called for the recognition of the aesthetics that appear innately in Nature through time and benign neglect. His writings had a considerable influence on early nineteenth-century architecture, garden design and aesthetic thought. Whereas the original bookplates were covered by those of Paul Breman, the gilt crests on the spines of the bindings reveal that they came from the large library at Spixworth Hall (a.k.a. Spixworth Park), Norfolk, the seat of Francis Longe (1748-1812), Sheriff of Norfolk (his crest: a lion, sejant, holding a saltier). Built in 1607, Spixworth Hall passed into the Longe family in 1693 (SOURCE: National Archives, Deeds and Documents Relating to Spixworth Hall Estate). Spixworth Hall fell into disrepair, and was demolished in 1950. Spixworth Park is described in great detail in James Grigor's "Eastern arboretum: or, Register of remarkable trees, seats, gardens, &c. in the county of Norfolk : with popular delineations of the British Sylva" (1854) pp. 215-216. We quote: "Those who can remember this park some twenty years ago, will not fail to regret the quantity of timber which, since that period, has fallen a prey to the fatal axe. There are still, however, several trees of the same age yet remaining, whilst some of them, particularly those near the dovecot, are fine and well grown, creating a depth of shade and giving a park-like effect to the surrounding scenery." But this was not always the case, as is clear from the description of the estate in 1854: "[Spixworth Hall] is surrounded by extensive gardens, and by a park of one hundred and fifty acres, ornamented with some fine timber" (SOURCE: Bernard Burke, "A visitation of the seats and arms of the noblemen and gentlemen of Great Britain and Ireland" p. 159. REFERENCES: Burke, A genealogical and heraldic dictionary of the landed gentry of Great Britain and Ireland, 1847, vol. I, p. 764. Subsequently in the library of R.W. Ketton-Cremer, biographer of Horace Walpole, Thomas Gray, and others, with his penciled notes on first blank (dated 1947).

Some staining throughout. The French Revolution had a great impact on Williams's own life and literary career. She went to France in the summer of 1790, and her enthusiastic book about her travels, Letters Written in France (1790), would become the first of eight volumes of eyewitness accounts, later known as the Letters from France (1790-96). She explained in her first book that the historic Bastille day celebration in Paris was 'not a time in which distinctions of country were remembered. It was the triumph of human kind ... and it required but the common feelings of humanity to become in that moment a citizen of the world' (p. 14) ODNB.Scarce.

        The Trial of Maurice Margarot, before the High Court of Judiciary, at Edinburgh

      New York: James Carey, no. 91, Broad-Street, 1794. Octavo, engraved portrait frontispiece, 166 pp.; some offsetting but an unusually clean copy, in attractive modern quarter calf. New York edition of a rare work: the trial that sent Margarot to Botany Bay. Very scarce American edition of the trial of the "Scottish martyr" Margarot, and one of very few eighteenth-century American publications of Australian interest. This is in fact the first separately printed edition of this important trial, and includes not only the transcript of the trial (in which Margarot conducted his own defence) but also Margarot's long summation and the judgement against him. This is the first copy we have had of the book in over a decade.The interesting frontispiece features a portrait of Margarot signed by the American artist Benjamin Tanner (1775-1848), over a few lines from the trial transcript:Marg: Did you use these words - What shod. you think of giving him: 100 lashes, together with Botany Bay - or words to that purpose?Ld. J. Clk: Go on - Put your quests. if you have any more.Marg: Did any person - Did a Lady, say to you, that the Mob would not allow you to whip him: & my Lord, did you not say that the Mob would be the better for letting a little BLOOD?Maurice Margarot was one of the "Scottish martyrs" sentenced to transportation (for 14 years in his case). Together with a group of fellow 'seditionists' he was sent to Botany Bay on board the Surprize. Disputes over what happened on board the Surprize continue to this day, but in short Margarot was accused by fellow Scottish Martyr Thomas Palmer of having informed the captain of a planned convict mutiny on board, leading to their incarceration for the rest of the voyage. After his arrival in Australia Margarot seems to have spent the next 17 years as a highly mobile 'double agent' moving alternately between the Governor's clique, groups of disaffected army officers and Irish 'rebel' conspirators. He was vociferous during the governorship of Hunter, while his relations with Governor Kinghave been called 'complex and mysterious' (ADB). He is considered to have probably been involved in the planning of the Irish rebellion of March 1804, actions which led to him being forced to spend the next few years in Norfolk Island, Van Diemen's Land, and Newcastle, before returning to England in 1810. Margarot died five years later in poverty, although in the 1830s his reputation was rehabilitated by some of the founders of the Chartist movement.Ferguson Addenda (189a) noted only the National Library's imperfect copy (the Nan Kivell copy), but there now appears to be a second complete copy noted in the library; a complete copy has likewise since been acquired by the State Library of New South Wales. The Margarot trial was evidently of more than passing interest in the United States as in 1796 a now even rarer Philadelphia edition was published by a William Carey (presumably a relation of James).

        Land Grant to Neil McKellar of sixty acres in Petersham

      Sydney: 3 October, 1794. Folio, manuscript in ink on paper, 440 x 367 mm., with original paper seal, official stamps and annotations, ticketed to the reverse; very good, some wear at the old folds. Signed by Grose, Collins, White, Paterson and Laing. An important and interesting land grant from the first years of settlement, signed by Francis Grose (acting governor for two years following Phillip's departure), witnessed by John White, William Paterson, and Edward Laing, and inscribed by David Collins as Governor's Secretary.The grant was made to Neil McKellar (1792-circa 1802), an ensign in the New South Wales Corps, of which Grose had been commanding officer. McKellar had come to Sydney on the Fourth Fleet. By 1797 he was promoted lieutenant, and was in command at the Hawkesbury. He was again promoted by Governor King, who installed McKellar as his aide-de-camp and secretary in 1800. Interestingly, given Paterson's signature here, McKellar would second Paterson in his September 1801 duel with John Macarthur; it was because of his involvement that King ordered McKellar to sail for London on the schooner Caroline. It is known that McKellar was supposed to return via New Bedford, Massachusetts, but he never arrived: he is assumed to have died at sea in 1802, but this has not been confirmed (see the entry in the Australian Encyclopaedia).The parcel of land was for sixty acres in Petersham, the plot to be bounded by Parramatta Road to the north, Craven Place to the south, and Hammond Hill to the east. The substantial holding was to be known as "Glendarnell", presumably a reference to McKellar's Scots' heritage. The lease is recorded in Ryan's Land Grants 1788-1809, along with four other substantial land grants to McKellar.Such grants, signed by the luminaries of the fledgling colony, present a rare and attractive insight into early Sydney, and are becoming increasingly scarce.

        Manuscript Document Signed, being a contract between Webster and LINDLEY MURRAY regarding the terms of Webster's purchase from Murray of a plot of land in lower Manhattan, "now in tenure and occupation of Thomas Greenleaf, printer"

      [New York], 1794. Signed by Webster, and Murray's attorneys, John Murray , Sr. and Jr. Three scallop-topped pages on two adjoining sheets. 7-3/4 x 12-1/2 in. Some splitting along central vertical fold, otherwise in fine condition. In quarter blue morocco folder. Murray and Webster Do A Deal A New York City real-estate transaction with tremendous resonance. This remarkable agreement was made between the two pioneering, rival American grammarians, Lindley Murray and Noah Webster, whose grammars, spellers, and readers influenced many generations of American students. Indeed, Lindley Murray (1745-1826) was the only rival in popularity to Noah Webster, and he published his hugely successful ENGLISH GRAMMAR in 1795, while living in York, shortly after this document was signed. In it, he agrees to sell a plot of land to none other than Noah Webster himself ("all that certain lot of ground situate lying and being in the second Ward of the City of New York ... bounded in front on Water Street, on the East side by ground of Robert Bruce, and on the West side by ground of John Keese ...") By an equally curious coincidence, the then-current tenant of Murray's property was the New York printer, Thomas Greenleaf, whose "New York Journal and Patriotic Register" was the first Democratic organ in the country.

        Third Congress imprint of ???An Act directing a Detachment from the Militia of the United States??? to be held ???in readiness to march at a moment???s warning.??? Three months later, Pres. Washington mobilized the militia to suppress the Whiskey Rebellion setting a precedent for the use of the militia to ???execute the laws of the union...and suppress insurrections.???

      Historic Imprint signed in type ???Go: Washington??? as President, ???John Adams??? as Vice-President, and ???Frederick Augustus Muhlenberg??? as Speaker of the House, 1.5 pages, front and verso, 8" X 13.25". Philadelphia: 1794. Disbound, tiny thread holes at edge. Pencil notation at top. Edges tanned. Fine condition. In part,???...the President of the United States be, and he is hereby authorized to require of the executives of the several States, to take effectual measures, as soon as may be, to organize, arm and equip, according to law, and hold in readiness to march at a moment???s warning, the following proportions, respectively, of eighty thousand effective militia, officers included...??? The number of militia is listed by state: Georgia 1333, South-Carolina 3550, North-Carolina 7331, Kentucky 1532, Virginia 11,377, Maryland 5418, Delaware 1256, Pennsylvania 10,768, New-Jersey 4318, New-York 7971, Vermont 2139, Connecticut 5881, Rhode Island 1697, Massachusetts 11,885, and New-Hampshire 3544. The act was approved by Pres. Washington on May 9, 1794. On May 19, 1794, Secretary of War Henry Knox transmitted to the Governors of the States copies of this act. Farmers in western Pennsylvania had been angered by a federal excise tax imposed on whiskey since 1791 and had been engaged in a series of attacks on tax collectors, especially in river towns. The attacks escalated and in July 1794, a federal marshal was attacked. On August 7, 1794, Pres. Washington issued a proclamation commanding ???all persons, being insurgents, as aforesaid, and all others whom it may concern, on or before the 1st day of September next to disperse and retire peaceably to their respective abodes.â? He also stated that â??it is in my judgment necessary under the circumstances of the case to take measures for calling forth the militia in order to suppress the combinations aforesaid, and to cause the laws to be duly executed; and I have accordingly determined so to do, feeling the deepest regret for the occasion.â? An army of almost 13,000 militia was mobilized and the insurrection was suppressed. Five years into his presidency, Washington had asserted the right of the national government to enforce order in one state with troops raised in other states. Evans 27852. NAIP w014568.
