        Skaldestycken af Ossian.

      Öfversatte från engelskan. I:1-3. Uppsala, J. Edmans enka respektive J. F. Edman, 1794-1800. 8:o. Grav. titelblad,XXXII,118,(2) s. + grav. titelblad,146,(16) + 98,(2) s. Samtida marmorerat hfrbd med guldornerad rygg, röd titeletikett och gula snitt. Ryggen ngt blekt och har nästan antagit en grön färgton. Pärmhörnen stukade. Bra inlaga med några enstaka obetydliga fläckar. I det sista arbetet en ljus eskalerande fuktfläck i övre hörnet. Från det Finemanska biblioteket.. Allt som utkom. Redigerad och delvis översatt av G. Knös, O. A. Knös och G. Rosén. I de tre häftena avtrycks med omfattande tillägg de utdrag ur "Ossians sånger" som tidigare förekommit i bl.a. "Götheborgska magazinet", "Åbo tidningar", "Stockholms posten" m.fl., samt de fragment som återfinns i "Den unge Werthers lidande" och i A. Lindbloms avhandling "De poematis Ossianis". Följande dikter ur "Ossians sånger" ingår i "Skaldestycken": "Comala", "Carric-thura", "Carthon", "Oithona", "The war of Caros", "The war of Inis-thona", "The songs of Selma", "Fingal", "Lathmon", "Dar-thula", "The death of Cuthullin", "The battle of Lora" och "Conlath and Cuthona". Därutöver återfinns dikterna "Kinfena och Sira" och "Taras sånger" hämtade ur baron de Harolds samling "Poems of Ossian" (1787) samt "Minvanas sånger" och "Oscur" vars ursprung är oklart. Theodor Hasselqvist har i "Ossian i den svenska dikten och litteraturen", förmodligen felaktigt, föreslagit att de två sistnämnda skulle ha förekommit i någon tidig utgåva av "Ossians sånger". I företalet citeras bl.a. Hugh Blairs "Critical dissertation on the poems of Ossian" och MacPhersons brev till Uno von Troil. Frågan om diktverkets autenticitet framskymtar: "Ossians verk äro så starkt teknade med ålderdomens egentliga stämpel, at om ock inga yttre bevis för deras ålder funnos, ingen med omdöme och smak begåvad läsare kan draga i betänkande, at tilägna dem ett långt aflägse tidehvarf." Den första kompletta svenska Ossianöversättningen utkom 1842-46

        Recherches sur les Causes des Principaux faits Physiques, Et particulierement sur celles de la Combustion, de l'Elévation de l'eau dans l'état de vapeurs; de la Chaleur produite....2 vols.

      Paris, Maradan. Seconde Anné de la Republique, (1794). 2 cont. hcalf. Richly gilt backs, tome-and titlelabels in red leather. A little weakness at top of hinge, otherwise a very attractive copy. With the 2 half-title and 2 titles. (4),412;XVI,375 pp., 2 folded plates (1 in letterpress and 1 engraved). Light yellowing to leaves and a few scattered brownspots.. First edition. It is Lamarck's first larger work in Chemistry, and published before his well-known statement of evolution. His conceptions of chemical processes as propounded here, may well provide a basis for understanding his theory of evolution, which he presented in 1800."In this work Lamarck sets forth his views on the immutability of species and attacks the theory of spontaneous origin of life. The book is interesting in the history of Chemistry because Lamarck attacs Lavoisier's anti-phlogistic theory." (Duveen p. 334)
