        The Elements and Practice of Rigging and Seamanship

      London: Printed for David Steel, Union Row, Little Tower Hill, 1794. Trimmed a little close by the eighteenth-century binder with a few plate margins and some headlines at the end of vol. II affected; in generally excellent condition.. Two volumes, quarto, with an engraved frontispiece and 94 engraved plates, many of them folding; with two working volvelles (Vol. II after p.274); contemporary calf, flat spines decorated in gilt, double leather labels; armorial bookplates of the Earl of Northesk. First edition of this classic compendium of the practice of sailing large ships: a precise record of sail practices prevalent at the close of the eighteenth century and thus an extraordinarily detailed record of the technology that fulfilled white settlement of Australia. A rare book in any case, this is an unusually good copy: most examples that we have seen have suffered from heavy use. This handsome copy has probably survived so well as it comes from the library of a naval nabob, William Carnegie, the seventh Earl of Northesk. Naval commander and hero, Carnegie was third in command at Trafalgar, commanding the Britannia in the great defeat of the French. His career culminated in his appointment as full admiral and Commander-in-chief Plymouth.Two pages of extensive neatly written notes on blank leaves at the start of the first volume record careful details of sail settings for two ships of the line, Le Tonnant and Magnificent. The former was likely the French warship captured by Nelson at the battle of Aboukir and subsequently transferred into the Royal Navy while Magnificent was the command of Carnegie's brother-in-law William Henry Jervis. A modern reprint, with a foreword by Dr. Alan McGowan of the National Maritime Museum, Greenwich, describes it as 'the first work published in the English language that was really designed as a compendium of the knowledge required by a seaman. As such it was aimed at the ambitious young men wishing to rise in their profession: the Midshipmen and Master's Mates in the Navy; the apprentices and would-be Mates in the merchant fleets. In the event its appeal was much wider. Its success stemmed largely from two factors established by Steel himself. First, it was aimed at those aspiring to succeed in the largest single industry in Britain - and probably the world. Second, it was essentially a practical man's guide to a practical business. Every skill that was required to be in the head - and hands - of a Master Mariner is dealt with in a logical sequence and in simple language: this is the essence of Steel's style.'This work was the bible for many midshipmen who joined the Royal Navy during the French Revolutionary Wars, Napoleonic Wars and the War of 1812. The coverage includes how to make all the sails, the masts, the anchors, how to tie knots, rig the ship, and actually sail the ship. Lastly, how to fight the ship. Where Naval Architecture shows you how to build the hull, Rigging and Seamanship covers everything else which formed part of the ship as well as how to use the ship. The two volumes Quarto contain nearly 600 pages of which 150 are tables. These provide all the dimensions for Standing and Running Rigging for every type of ship in the Royal Navy in 1794. There are also tables which cover the same information for Masts and Yards, and for each and every Sail used onboard every ship, whether of the line or smaller. There are also 95 plates to illustrate the above...'.A full text has been made available online by the Historic Naval Ships Association (http://www.hnsa.org/) who describe it as 'a key reference for those interested in the age of Nelson... [which] will reward those that search through it to understand the technology of the era'.The only copy located by Trove in an Australian library is that in the State Library of New South Wales (D Q79/62-63).NOTE:Admiral Carnegie's role at Trafalgar (from J. Ralfe's The Naval Biography Of Great Britain, II, pp. 402-403, London, 1828), quoting from The Naval Chronicle:'We now come to the most important period of (Carnegie's) life, the battle of Trafalgar, in which he was third in command. Of his conduct on that occasion, the following particulars have been published, and we believe with perfect correctness: "Previous to that great event, it had been directed by the commander-in-chief, in consequence of her heavy sailing. that the Britannia should constantly take a position to the windward of him; and on the morning of that glorious day, he ordered, by signal, that she should assume a station as most convenient, without regard to the order of battle; and afterwards sent verbal directions to Lord Northesk, by the captain of the Sirius, to break through the enemy's line astern of the fourteenth ship. This was effected in the most masterly and gallant manner, though the Britannia was severely galled in bearing down by raking fire from several of the enemy. On passing through the line and hauling up, she was the fourth ship of the lee line in action (the Victory, Temeraire, and Neptune alone preceding her), and in a short space of time completely dismasted a French ship of 80 guns, who waved a white handkerchief in token of submission. She afterwards singly engaged and kept at bay three of the enemy's van ships, that were attempting to double upon the Victory, at that time warmly engaged with two of the enemy, and much disabled. During the whole continuance of this long and bloody conflict, the noble admiral zealously emulated the conduct of his illustrious leader, displaying the most heroic courage, tempered by the coolest judgment and presence of mind; nor was his conduct after the action less meritorious, while his skill and promptitude were equally conspicuous in the arduous task of securing the captured ships. And when the order was given for destroying the prizes, after removing them from the British seamen, his zeal in the truly dangerous service, in a tempestuous sea and a heavy gale of wind, was exceeded only by his exemplary humanity". (Naval Chronicle).'On this important day the Britannia's loss was 52 men killed and wounded. For his eminent service on this occasion, his Majesty conferred upon him the Order of the Bath, both Houses of Parliament returned him their thanks, and the citizens of London presented him with a valuable sword. He was also presented with a gold medal by the king, to commemorate the victory, and an elegant vase from the Patriotic Society. On the 281 April, 1808, he was made a vice-admiral; and on the 4th June, 1814, he attained the rank of admiral. He has since been honored with the rank of rear-admiral of Great Britand created Grand Cross of the Bath.'

        3seitiger Brief in schwarzer Tinte, Bonn 3. July 1841 mit eigenhändiger Unterschrift.

      0 - Autograph - Mendelssohn, Georg Benjamin, Geograph und Historiker 1794 - 1874. Sein Interesse richtete sich mit zunehmendem Alter immer stärker auf die Geschichte und die Politik, was auch seine letzte, 1846 erschienene Abhandlung über „Die ständische Institution im monarchischen Staate" bezeugt. Die romantisch-nationalen Anschauungen der Napoleonischen Zeit schlugen bei ihm in ein konservatives, ja reaktionäres Denken um, das die in Preußen bestehende Ständeeinteilung und die Privilegien der grundbesitzenden Aristokratie festschreiben wollte, was sogar die Kritik seiner adligen Freunde von der Wochenblattpartei hervorrief. 1843-45 gab Mendelssohn in sieben Bänden die „Gesammelten Schriften" seines Großvaters Moses Mendelssohn heraus. Zu den Hörern, die ihn schätzten, zählte 1841 Jacob Burckhardt, mit dem Mendelssohn als einziger Bonner Dozent auch persönlich in Verbindung trat. Außerdem las er als Ordinarius ein Privatissimum für den preußischen Prinzen Friedrich Wilhelm, den späteren Kaiser Friedrich III. Mendelssohns Bedeutung als Geograph gründet allein auf seinem „Germanischen Europa", das zu den Klassikern der Geographie gerechnet wird (Philippson), obwohl es bisher trotz positiver Urteile der Zeitgenossen und späterer Geographen noch keine eingehende wissenschaftsgeschichtliche Würdigung erfahren hat. In der Nachfolge Alexander v. Humboldts, Carl Ritters und Leopold v. Rankes stellt Mendelssohn für einen Teil Europas die gegenseitige Bedingtheit der Geographie, d. h. der Natur der Länder oder Landschaftsräume, und ihrer Geschichte dar. A. Hettner bezeichnet das Englandkapitel dieses Werkes, das in der Anwendung des Entwicklungsgedankens über Ritter hinausführt, als „Muster" für die „geschichtliche Auffassung der geographischen Verhältnisse des Menschen". Besonderes Lob fanden die prägnante Sprache des Autors und die Schönheit seiner auf eigenen Anschauungen beruhenden Naturschilderungen.

        STATE OF GEORGIA. BY HIS EXCELLENCY GEORGE MATHEWS, CAPTAIN-GENERAL, GOVERNOR, AND COMMANDER IN CHIEF IN AND OVER THE SAID STATE, AND OF THE MILITIA THEREOF...DO GIVE AND GRANT UNTO RICHMOND DAWSON...ONE THOUSAND ACRES...

      [Augusta?], 1794. Clean and very good. An impressive printed land grant, completed in manuscript, for 1000 acres of land in Washington County, Georgia, granted by Gov. George Mathews to one Richmond Dawson. The document is signed by Mathews as well as by the surveyor, George Weatherby, who has included a sketch of the land in question. The land is described as "on the waters of Choopee River, bounded SE and NE by said Dawson's Land and on all other sides by Vacant Lands." Governor Mathews had an eventful career, first as a Revolutionary soldier (including a stint as colonel of the Virginia troops in Greene's Carolina campaign), then as governor of Georgia, and finally as a special agent leading "irregular" activities in attempts to wrest Florida from Spain in 1810-12. In the end the U.S. government repudiated Mathews' Florida actions, and he died in Augusta a bitter old man. "By his demise the authorities at Washington escaped the consequences of his threat that he'd 'be dam'd if he didn't blow them all up,' and he carried to the grave much evidence that might explain his debatable conduct" - DAB. A handsome Georgia document and unusual early imprint. DAB XII, p.403.

        TO THE CITIZENS OF BALTIMORE-TOWN [caption title]

      [Baltimore: Printed by James Angell & Paul J. Sullivan, 1794. Early ink note on verso: "Mr. Thornton." Old folds. Small separation at one crossfold, affecting two letters of text. Unevenly trimmed around the text. Very good. A very rare Federal-era broadside - only the second located copy - printing the text of an open letter from Judge Samuel Chase to the citizens of Baltimore in the wake of a riot in 1794. Chase, a signer of the Declaration of Independence and a future Supreme Court Justice, defends his actions in detaining the leaders of the mob, and appeals to the citizens of Baltimore to value order and government over their destructive passions. The occasion for the uprising was Congress' declaration of a thirty-day embargo on foreign trade, issued in March 1794. A local shipmaster, Capt. Ramsdell, expressed his displeasure at the end of the embargo, and he and another man, named Stenton (described in the broadside as an "American pirate"), were attacked by a mob. Among the leaders of the mob was Capt. David Stodder, the owner of a local shipyard, and Capt. William Reeves. The mob set upon Ramsdell and Stenton at Fells Point and tarred and feathered them. Chase, who at the time was chief justice of the District Criminal Court in Baltimore and chief justice of the Maryland General Court, ordered that Stodder and Reeves, as the ringleaders, be held in custody pending charges unless they could offer up bail. Stodder and Reeves refused to post bail, and their supporters threatened to tear down the jail and to raze Chase's home. After giving them a day to cool down, the prisoners agreed to post bail and the tense situation abated. In the present broadside Chase describes and justifies his actions, making an eloquent case for the rule of law over the mentality of the mob. He lays out the details of the events, explains his actions in detail, and describes the threats made against him, his family and property, and against public order. Chase concludes by stating that he is doing his duty as a judge and following the oath of his office, and that he is not appealing to the citizens of Baltimore to protect himself, "but that you may determine whether you ought to suffer an outrage to your laws, so fatal to the prosperity of this town, so destructive of all order, and so subversive of your government." This broadside is without an imprint, and the identity of the printers is based on the attribution by Evans. Evans, NAIP, and Minick all locate only a single copy, at the Maryland Historical Society. Rare and quite interesting for the history of law and civic culture in the early American Republic. EVANS 26762. NAIP w000729. MINICK 159. Francis F. Beirne, THE AMIABLE BALTIMOREANS (New York, 1951), pp.144-45.

        Medicina theologica, ou supplica humilde, feita a todos os senhores confessores e directores, sobre o modo de proceder com seus penitentes na emenda dos peccados, principalmente da lascivia, colera, e bebedice. Bound third in the volume.

      Lisbon, Na Off. de Antonio Rodrigues Galhardo, 1794. - 11 works bound together. Small 4°, nineteenth-century (third quarter) quarter sheep over marbled boards (some wear to extremities, three small round wormholes in spine, six in upper cover with a bit more damage, and one slightly larger in rear cover), flat spine with green lettering piece ("Miscellanea" stamped in gilt), edges sprinkled red. Two small round wormholes throughout, touching some letters of text but not affecting legibility; repairs in lower margins of leaves S1-2; occasional light dampstaining, more pronounced on title page. Still, in near good to good condition. 147 pp., (2 ll.). *** FIRST EDITION of the first Portuguese book on psychosomatic medicine, and one of the earliest works on this subject in any language. Mello Franco is recognized as a precursor of Freud. Upon publication Medicina theologica was attacked for containing "dangerous, heterodox and impious doctrines." (Small wonder, when pp. 3-4 of the preface reads, "O Christianismo he o que mais me lastimou . . . só domina a desordem, e a iniquidade, propaga-se a libertinagem, desfallece o Santo, e marchão todos pela estrada dos peccadores.") The government ordered its suppression and dissolved the Real Meza da Censura, which had approved its publication, while the police tried in vain to discover its author.Mello Franco considers that the best way to cure human corruption (particularly lasciviousness, anger and drunkenness) is through confession, and he wants to raise confessors almost to the level of physicians who can treat the body as well as the spirit. He discusses love as sickness, including satyriasis and nymphomania, giving recipes for anti-aphrodisiacs that the confessor may prescribe. There are likewise recipes for medications to suppress anger. Chapter XX (p. 115) begins with the interesting comment, "A bebedice he huma grande enfermidade, que nunca se cura com remedios moraes, e difficilmente com os fysicos," and goes on to discuss the treatment of alcoholism (pp. 115-23).Mello Franco (1757-1823), a native of Minas Gerais, practiced medicine in Lisbon until 1817, when he returned to Brazil. He was frequently in trouble with the authorities for his liberal writings and associations, and spent several years imprisoned by the Inquisition. His Tratado da educação fysica dos meninos, Lisbon 1790, is the first book on pediatrics by a Brazilian. Reino da estupidez, a satirical poem aimed at the professors of Coimbra, was circulating anonymously in manuscript as early as 1785 (the first printed version was not until 1818), and caused an enormous scandal.*** Borba de Moraes (1983) I, 320-1; cf. the first edition (1958) I, 274 where Borba cites only 2 known copies, and describes the book as "very rare"; Período colonial, pp. 140-3.

        Il Morgante Maggiore

      Venezia - Nella Stamperia Palese 1794 - A scarceset comprising ofPulci's 28 cantaripoem in ottava rima, who's subjectis loosely derived from the Carolingian epic tradition.

        A collection of 61 broadsides, chiefly announcements of degree defenses.

      This is a great and eye-pleasing assemblage for the study of Guatemalan art, specifically that of engraving, etching, and typography. Announcements of university degree defenses are a => rare printing genre; for example, none of the 61 items in this collection are held in the John Carter Brown Library. Additionally, only 16 were discovered by Medina. Of the 61 items, 37 are in the smaller folio format (appx. 29.5 x 20 cm; 11.75" x 8.875") and 24 in the larger folio format (42 x 30.5 cm; 16.5" x 12"). Each has an engraving or etching in the top area: The very attractive images include saints and Madonnas, including three instances of the Virgin of Guadalupe, but also coats of arms and, very interestingly, portraits of living individuals. The typography is always center-justified above a final paragraph or two that is right justified; and the printers have used a variety of ornaments to create interesting borders. There is one case of an image being used twice: once on a small format broadside and also on a large one. The etched text has been eliminated on one of these; and when one looks carefully at the other images it is clear that engraved text has been masked or removed from some of them also -- further evidence of recycling as having been a printshop practice. Remarkably, one of the broadsides is bilingual (Latin & Spanish) and is a publication => not of a university defense but a publication of that Enlightenment development, the social organization "La Sociedad Economica," in this case La Sociedad Economica de Guatemala. It announces that it has been reborn, and will not let the authorities "suffocate" it. Another is a => eulogy for a retired university professor. Among the defense announcements, some give the actual questions/topics that will be asked/defended. The date range of the items is 1794 to 1823 and the engravers include Juan Jose Rosales de Santa Cruz, Narcisco Rosal, Juan Pedro Larrabe, Garci-Aguirre, Francisco Cabrera, Valladolid, and Jose Casildo Espana. Notably one is by the Mexican engraver Villavicencio. Finally, the printers are the usual admirable suspects: Bracamonte, Beteta, and Arevalo. => It is interesting to see them represented by such UNusual ephemera!

Kopergravure vervaardigd door Thomas Jefferys uitgegeven door Laurie & Whittle te Londen 1794. Later met de hand gekleurd. Afm. 46,2 x 61,5 cm.Kaart van Curaço, met rechts een inzet van een plattegrond van Fort Amsterdam gelegen aan de Sint Annabaai. Rechtsboven een viertal kustprofielen van het eiland gezien vanuit verschillende richtingen. Linksonder schaalstokken in Sea Leagues en Dutch miles. Aangegeven zijn ook de plantages, zoutpannen, bronnen en vegetatie.Deze kaart verscheen in "The West-India Atlas"' met 41 kaarten en 27 pagina"s tekst.Jefferys was een van de belangrijkste Engelse uitgevers van kaarten in de 18de eeuw. Hij vervaardigde kaarten van de gehele wereld, maar zijn beste werk is van Noord-Amerika en West-Indië. Hij begon zijn carrière in de kaarten handel in de vroege jaren 1730, hij was werkzaam als graveur voor verschillende Londense uitgevers en begon uiteindelijk zijn eigen winkel. In 1746 werd hij benoemd tot geograaf van de Prince of Wales en werd in 1760 geograaf aan de Koning. Daarmee kreeg hij toegang tot de manuscripten en cartografische informatie in het bezit van de Engelse marine. Begin jaren 1760 begon hij aan een ambitieus project om op basis van nieuw onderzoek van een reeks Engelse graafschappen kaarten te produceren, maar het geld raakte op en zijn faillissement volgde in 1766. Hij werkte vervolgens samen met de Londense uitgever Robert Sayer, die veel van Jefferys' platen tot na zijn dood in 1771 opnieuw uitgaven. Dit exemplaar komt uit een atlas weer iets later uitgegeven door Laurie & Whittle.Jefferys maakte deze kaart naar voorbeeld van Gerard van Keulen, die in 1728 zijn "Nieuwe Afteekening van het Eyland Curacao"' had gemaakt.Prijs: € 4.350,- (incl. lijst).

        World, rare 18th century wall map.

      "A General Map of the World or Terraqueous Globe, with all the New Discoveries and Marginal Delineations, Containing the Most Interesting Particulars in the Solar, Starry and Mundane Systems . . . 1794"'.Drawn in London by Thomas Dunn based on earlier cartographic research by J. B. B. D'Anville. Published by Laurie and Whittle as plate nos. 1-2 in the 1797 edition of Thomas Kitchin's General Atlas. Size: 106,7 x 124,5 cm.Beautiful double hemisphere wall map of the world, embellished with a number of different Celestial Models. The map was revised several times to include the discoveries of Captain Cook"s 3 voyages. The general outline of North America is known in 1794. However, few inland expeditions had extended westward beyond the Mississippi. The map notes two separate speculative courses for the mythical River of the West, a northern route extending from Lake Winnipeg and a southern route passing south of Winnepeg through Pike's lake. South America exhibits a typically accurate coastline and limited knowledge of the interior beyond Peru and the populated coastlands. A few islands are noted off the coast, including the Galapagos, which are referred to as the Inchanted Islands. The Amazon is vague with many of its tributaries drawn in speculatively. In Africa we also find the coasts well defined but a vague interior. The Nile River follows the Ptolemaic course with a presumed source in two lakes at the base of the "Mountains of the Moon". Asia is exceptionally well mapped reflecting the most recent information available in Europe. Australia appears in full as New Holland or Terra Australis. Numerous points along the coast are named with associated notes regarding the activities of various explorers. Van Diemen's Land or Tasmania is curiously attached to the mainland - an error that many earlier maps had long ago corrected. There is little trace of either Antarctica or the Great Southern continent.Price: € 4.500,- (excl. BTW/VAT).

        Indonesia, Strait of Sunda or Batavia - Laurie and Whittle, 1794.

      INDONESIA NAUTICAL CHART"A New Chart for Sailing between the Straits of Sunda or Batavia and the Straits of Banca and Gaspar.' Copper engraving from "The East-India Pilot, or Oriental Navigator' published in London by Robert Laurie and James Whittle in 1794. Coloured by a later hand. Size: 50,8 x 68,6 cm.Nautical chart of northwestern Java and eastern Sumatra, including the Straits of Sunda and the Strait of Banca. The map covers from the Strait of Banca southwards to the Krakatoa volcano, the east as far as Batavia (Jakarta). Throughout the 17th and 18th centuries, this region was a major battleground between rival Dutch, British, and Portugese trading monopolies. The Dutch and British in particular contested over northwestern Java, with its easy access to regional spice, in particular pepper, ports. In 1602 the British East India Company established a trade entrepot at Bantam to contest the Dutch East India Company (VOC) in nearby Batavia. The Dutch, allied with a local Sultan, eventually drove the English out of Bantam and Java itself. By the end of the 18th century, when this map was made, the Bantam entrepot was little more than a name on a map - as seen here - while Batavia further east had risen, with a population of nearly one million, to dominate Java. In 1800, just six years after this map was published, the VOC was formally dissolved and the Dutch East Indies established in its place as a full-fledged national colonial venture. The British meanwhile established themselves in Bencoolen, on Sumatra, and later in Singapore and Malacca.Cartographically this chart is derived from earlier maps prepared for Jean-Baptiste d"Apres de Mannevillette"s 1745 Neptune Oriental. It was subsequently updated and revised under Laurie and Whittle based on charts compiled by Captain Lestock Williams. The map offers rich detail including countless depth soundings, notes on the sea floor, commentary on reefs, rhumb lines, shoals, place names and a wealth of other practical information for the mariner.Price: € 975,- (excl. VAT/BTW).

Remarkably, one of the broadsides is bilingual (Latin & Spanish) and is a publication => not of a university defense but a publication of that Enlightenment development, the social organization "La Sociedad Economica," in this case La Sociedad Economica de Guatemala. It announces that it has been reborn, and will not let the authorities "suffocate" it. Another is a => eulogy for a retired university professor. Among the defense announcements, some give the actual questions/topics that will be asked/defended. The date range of the items is 1794 to 1823 and the engravers include Juan Jose Rosales de Santa Cruz, Narcisco Rosal, Juan Pedro Larrabe, Garci-Aguirre, Francisco Cabrera, Valladolid, and Jose Casildo Espana. Notably one is by the Mexican engraver Villavicencio. Finally, the printers are the usual admirable suspects: Bracamonte, Beteta, and Arevalo. => It is interesting to see them represented by such UNusual ephemera! All items are in very good condition, in Mylar sleeves, the entire collection in a quarter morocco clamshell case.

        PANTHEON DER DEUTSCHEN

      bey Karl Gottlieb Hofmann, Chemnitz 1794 - Erster (- Dritter) Theil. In drei Bänden. Mit drei Titelkupfern, drei Kupfertiteln mit Vignetten und 36 Kupfertafeln. [Bde. 1 u.2:] Chemnitz, bey Karl Gottlieb Hofmann 1794-1795 [Bd.3:] Leipzig, bey Friedrich Gotthold Jacobäer 1800. I: Vortitel, Front., (2) Bll., CX, 410 S. II: Vortitel, Front., XVIII, 135, 194, 192 S. III: Vortitel, Front., IV, 92, 108, 116, 162 S. Halblederbände d.Zt. mit zwei farb. Rückenschilden und –linienvergoldung. Kapitale bestoßen, etwas berieben. Erste Ausgabe (Rümann 841 kennt nur 30 Kupfer; Lanck./Oehler III,43). – Etwas stock- bzw. braunfleckig, „Endlich ist der längst erwartete dritte Theil des Pantheons der Deutschen in der Jacobäerschen Buchhandlung in Leipzig erschienen, nachdem die Herausgabe desselben durch den vorigen Verleger 3 [?!] Jahre hindurch war unterbrochen worden“ kündigt der Verlag die Fortsetzung im Intelligenzblatt 95 der A.L.Z. vom 5.Juli 1800 an und schließt: „Es ist wohl nicht zu zweifeln, dass das Publicum die weitere und künftighin ununterbrochene Fortsetzung dieses Pantheons in der zeitherigen Weise wünschenswerth finden, und den gegenwärtigen Verleger besser als den vorigen hiezu durch zeitige Bestellung aufmuntern wird, in welchem Falle ein 4r Theil zur Oster-Messe 1801 erscheinen soll.“ Dazu ist es nicht gekommen. Nachdem schon der dritte Teil, „durch Unglücksfälle des vorigen Verlegers veranlaßt“ (K.G.Hofmann, 1762 in Chemnitz geboren, starb ebda 1799. Über sein Leben ist fast nichts bekannt.), verzögert erschienen war, endete das groß geplante Werk mit diesem Band, obwohl bemerkenswerte Autoren daran mitgearbeitet haben. Neben J.A.EBERHARD (Leibniz), CHR.GIRTANNER (Rudolph von Habsburg), J.F.SCHINK (Lessing), F.C.SCHLENKERT (Hermann der Cherusker), CHR.J. WAGENSEIL (Ulrich von Hutten), E.K.WIELAND (Luther), K.L.WOLTMANN (Moritz von Sachsen) seien hier v.a. der Jakobiner HEINRICH WÜRZER (Friedrich II.), sowie G.CHR. LICHTENBERG (Kopernikus; Jung 371) hervorgehoben. JACOBÄER nennt in o.g. Annonce SCHLENKERT als Verfasser des Beitrags über MORITZ VON SACHSEN, HOFMANN im Vorbericht zum 2.Teil K.L.WOLTMANN. Das Frontispiz zum zweiten Teil zeigt eine Ansicht des damals noch nicht ausgeführten Wolfenbütteler LESSING-Denkmals von dem Gothaer Bildhauer FRIEDRICH DOELL noch unter freiem Himmel. Wegen fortgesetzter Beschädigungen durch LESSING-Feinde wurde es 1806 in die Bibliotheksrotunde versetzt. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        The report of the committee appointed to manage the experiments of the Society for the Improvement of Naval Architecture

      London: printed, (by order of the Society) May 1794. 8vo., two large folding engraved plates (slightly soiled, margins browned), (4) + 12pp., including the half-title, with a few contemporary pen and ink calculations in margin of final leaf, stitched into new marbled wrappers with title on upper cover. A very good copy. Apparently very rare. (ESTC & COPAC find copies only at BL + Bodleian + London Lib. + Essex Inst., Mass.). Signed at the end of the text 'By order of the Society, Joseph Brockbank, Sec.' this is a paper reporting experiments concerning the resistance of water upon differently shaped bodies. The Society for the Improvement of Naval Architecture had been founded on 14th April 1791. The experiments reported here took place in the Greenland Dock in London ('the largest and most convenient piece of still water for the purpose near London'). The two plates illustrate in some detail the apparatus used.

        A TREATISE ON THE PRACTICE OF THE SUPREME COURT OF JUDICATURE OF THE STATE OF NEW-YORK IN CIVIL ACTIONS

      New York: T. and J. Swords, 1794. Thick octavo. Half calf and marbled boards in antique style, stamped in gilt, leather label. Interleaved throughout, with extensive manuscript annotations in a contemporary hand. Contemporary ownership inscription on titlepage, trimmed a bit at top edge. Light scattered soiling. Very good. The first American practice manual for the legal profession, based in part on manuscript works by Alexander Hamilton. The present copy, interleaved throughout, contains massive annotations compiled by an attorney who was evidently in active practice before the New York Supreme Court at least until 1813. This is the self-styled second edition, published the same year as the first. It may have been the intention of the annotator to publish a new edition, but no such every appeared. Not much is known about William Wyche, a British emigré to America. On the titlepage of his treatise he styles himself as being "Of the honorable law society of Grey's Inn, London; and citizen of the United States of America." Wyche entered Grey's Inn at the end of 1788, but did not stay long enough to be registered as a proper barrister (a term of five years), and citizenship took two years' residence, meaning he must have emigrated around or before 1792. His TREATISE... quite practically translates, in a well-organized fashion, the practices of the New York court system in civil cases. This would have been eminently helpful for lawyers just starting out and learning to navigate the state's legal system. In the preface Wyche discusses the sources he consulted in the compilation of his work, noting: "Some practical sketches in manuscript, one passing under the name of a personage of high respectability, have been consulted; and whatever appeared of importance has been incorporated." The manuscript work referred to is undoubtedly one prepared by Alexander Hamilton in the 1780s. His treatise on practice circulated in manuscript copies (only one of which survives today) but was never published in the Federal period. It has been published in modern times by both the Hamilton Papers project and the New York Bar Association as PRACTICAL PROCEEDINGS IN THE SUPREME COURT OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK. A comparison of the texts reveals that Wyche did indeed draw heavily on Hamilton's pioneering work. Wyche himself was only briefly part of the New York legal scene. He was not admitted to practice before the New York Supreme Court until May of 1795. Prior to this he published several books and married in 1794. He appeared in the 1795 and 1796 New York directories, and last appeared in a legal action in January 1796. After that he disappears. The present copy is of extraordinary interest for the extensive contemporary annotations throughout the text. The volume is interleaved, doubling its size, and bears significant and detailed notes throughout by an unidentified contemporary author. The annotator was clearly an active practitioner before the Court. The earliest date we note is 1796, shortly after publication, and the latest is 1813, providing a detailed picture of the evolution of the Court in its early years. A fertile basis for future research, the notes are quite evocative of the training of American lawyers in the Federal period. A highly important book and manuscript, providing a key to the basis of legal practice in New York. ESTC W2533. EVANS 28140. COHEN 9188. Robert Emery, LAW LIBRARY JOURNAL 93:3, pp.469-77.

        The Genuine Trial of Thomas Hardy for High Treason, At the Sessions...

      1794. Treason Trial Inspired by Fear of the French Revolution [Trial]. Hardy, Thomas [1752-1832], Defendant. Sibly, Manoah, Reporter. The Genuine Trial of Thomas Hardy for High Treason, At the Sessions House in the Old Bailey, From October 28 to November 5, 1794. London: Printed for J.S. Jordan, 1795. Two volumes. viii, [9]-508; viii, 602 pp. Lacking half-titles. Octavo (8-1/2" x 5"). Recent quarter cloth over marbled boards, printed paper title labels to spines, speckled edges. Moderate toning, light foxing in a few places, underlining to a few passages in Volume II, early owner signature to title page of Volume I. Ex-library. Small perforated stamp to title page of Volume II. A nice copy in a handsome binding. * Only edition. A shoemaker by trade, Hardy was the founder and First Secretary of the London Corresponding Society. This was a popular association of workingmen committing to the cause of universal male suffrage. Unnerved by the excesses of the French Revolution, and eager to set an example, Hardy was indicted for high treason in 1794. The public favored Hardy's cause and he was seen as an unjustly persecuted apostle of English liberty. As the trial proved, the Crown's case, prosecuted by Lord Eldon, had little merit and Hardy was acquitted to great acclaim. This account contains a complete transcript of the trial, along with a narrative account and the texts of letters and documents introduced as evidence. English Short-Title Catalogue T73925.
