World Cat (one copy only, at the British Library). "The frequently uttered judgement that Hoffmeister's music lacks depth and originality. may be correct in some cases, but it is unsuited to characterize his complete output, vast and manifold. One has to accept that Hoffmeister took the abilities and the taste of musical amateurs into account. Thus, comparison with the works of Mozart and Beethoven and, consequently, with standards that emerged only later is of little help. The extraordinary popularity of Hoffmeister's music in the composer's lifetime is mirrored in the large number of editions and issues and also in the reviews, not only in specialized journals but also elsewhere."

      [Philadelphia] 1794 - (13 x 7 3/4 inches). 4pp. Signed in print by J. Wagner, Clerk. Contemporay manuscript notations on each page tallying the number of vessels. Unbound A contemporary official printed list of American vessels with spoliation claims, issued by the Secretary of State in the midst of the negotiations over Jay's Treaty. In 1793 and 1794, the British captured numerous neutral American merchant ships during its conflict with France, including ships in both European and North American waters. The Secretary of State here issued an official list of 304 American merchant vessels -- including the ship's name, as well as the names of the masters and owners -- for distribution among port collectors, compiled "from the record of the Cases in the office of the Department of State." The terms of Jay's Treaty would include compensation for the vexations and spoliations, with the British eventually paying out over $10,000,000 by 1802. A rare and ephemeral early American document. OCLC cites but a single copy (Library Company). Not in Evans or Bristol.

        Anton Graf, vor der Staffelei sitzend und im Dreiviertelprofil dem Betrachter zugewandt. Radierung von nach einem Selbstbildnis Anton Graffs (1736 Winterthur - 1813 Dresden).

      Nach 1794. - In der Platte signiert und bezeichnet. Mit der Inschrift "Antoine Graff, Peintre de la Cour Electroale de Sax" sowie mit der Adresse von Frauenholz, Nürnberg. Brillanter Druck auf vollrandigem Bütten (mit Wz.). J. G. Müller, renommierter Grafiker der Goethezeit, wird in Paris bei J. G. Wille ausgebildet und 1776 nach Stuttgart zum Leiter des neu gegründeten Kupferstecherei-Instituts an der Hohen Carlsschule berufen. Ab 1798 leitet er eine eigene Druckerei, in dieser Zeit entsteht seine, den Dargestellten fokussierende Radierung nach dem Gemälde von Graf, das nach einer Würdigung von Theodor Heuss als "Selbstporträt von Dresden" in die Kunstgeschichte eingegangen ist: "Dresden hat ein Selbstporträt. Da sitzt er vor der grossen Leinwand, wendet den Oberkörper keck und unbefangen zum Beschauer und legt den Arm leicht über die Stuhllehne, wie wenn jemand, während er arbeitete, ins Zimmer getreten sei, dem er sich nun prüfend zukehrt, ohne die Absicht, sich weiter stören zu lassen. ( ) Dies Selbstporträt atmet ein schönes phrasenloses Selbstbewusstsein und Gelassenheit, und begreift man seinen Stil, dann weiss man, dass Graff nicht bloss für den formalen und ästhetisierenden Kunstgeschichtler vorhanden ist, sondern in seinem Werk wie in seinem eigenen menschlichen Wesen eine knappe, scharfe Formel der besten Art seiner Periode darstellt. Er ist so in gewissem Sinn geschichtliches Urkundenmaterial.", zit. nach Wikipedia (Graff). - Mit dem Blindstempel von Frauenholz, Nürnberg (Lugt 944). Verso mit violettem Sammlerstempel "SchK" (Druckbuchstaben, legiert). - Sehr gut erhalten. Sprache: Deutsch Gewicht in Gramm: 2100

        WASHINGTON, D.C.: PLAN DE LA VILLE DE WASHINGTON EN AMÈRIQUE.

      - This fascinating plan shows Washington, D.C. by the plan developed by Pierre Charles l’Enfant and modified by Andrew Ellicott. It is one of the earliest printed maps of Washington, and notably one of the earliest affordable maps, printed in 1794, only 3 years after the new capital had been proclaimed, and long before its construction was completed. The plan shows the elegant plan of the giant edifices, monuments and wide strategically placed wide boulevards that remain the hallmark of today’s D.C., including the layout of The Mall. The legend in the lower left identifies A) The Capitol; B) the President's House; C) the Stock Exchange (which was never realized, as finance remained based in Philadelphia and New York); D) the Arsenal; E) the Statue of George Washington Monument; while a-h label major streets and i labels Georgetown. On January 24, 1791, President George Washington proclaimed the creation of a new capital for the American Republic, to replace the provisional capital of Philadelphia. The city was to be built within the District of Columbia, a new federal jurisdiction that was carved out of Maryland and Virginia. The French-born American military engineer Major Pierre Charles L’Enfant (1754 -1825) was chosen to design the capital. While L’Enfant’s plan was generally accepted, he proved to be so difficult to work with that he was suspended form his post in 1792, before being formally dismissed the following year. He was replaced by Andrew Ellicott (1754 – 1820), who slightly revised L’Enfant’s plan, drafting the earliest surviving map of Washington, D.C. in 1792. From 1792 to 1794, less than a dozen maps of Washington, D.C. were printed, all of which range from scarce to very rare, and few of which are affordable. Due to the enormous and longstanding German emigration to America, there was always tremendous interest in Germany in the Unites States, resulting in the production of many fine maps and books. The present map was engraved by I.G.A. Weidener (fl. 1794 -1811) of Weimar and included within the Almanac de Gotha pour l'Annee 1795 (Gotha: C.W. Ettinger, 1794), a small calendar book. It was printed in French, as that language was then the Pan-European intellectual lingua. It is the second edition of the map, the first was made jointly by Weidener and J.G. Klinger, likewise appearing in 1795 Gotha almanacs. Although it is practically identical to the first edition, the present second edition was engraved on an entirely new plate.

      Samuel Campbell, New York 1794 - Condition: FINE. [TWO VOLUMES IN ONE: 206 & 139] Full leather volume with rich patina, normal corner bumps, title faded on spine but letters clear. Book is as tight as new. Some small clean page tears here and there; only serious flaw is the part of page 48 in Volume I is missing. Browning and foxing throughout, but easily readable.

        The Continental Harmony, Containing a Number of Anthems, Fuges, and Chorusses, in Several Parts. Never Before Published. Composed by -- Author of Various Music Books. [.] Published According to Act of Congress

      Printed, Typographically at Boston by Isaiah Thomas and Ebenezer T. Andrews. Sold at their Bookstore, No. 45, Newbury Street; by said Thomas in Worcester; and by the Booksellers in Boston, and elsewhere, Boston 1794 - First edition of Billing's last work. Letterpress pages. In contemporary paper boards, restored. xxxiv, (1), 36-199, (1) p. Final collection published by the father of American choral music. Published in Boston by Thomas and Andrews in 1794, it was sponsored by several musical societies to help the "distressed situation of Mr. Billings' family." The fifty-one compositions with full text include one set-piece for four voices, seventeen anthems, and poems and hymns by Isaac Watts, the «Father of English Hymnody», among them the renowned «Creation» (pp. 52-54). The tune book has an introductory section on the rudiments of music and a commentary on the rules in the form of a dialogue between a master and scholar. "In its introduction, Billings defended his rustic native style in the face of the public's increasing preference for the more refined, less demanding European idiom. 'Variety is always pleasing, and.there is more variety in one piece of fuging music, than in twenty pieces of plain song.'" (John Ogasapian, "Music of the Colonial & Revolutionary Era," p. 140) "The [?] last of his publications contains longer, more complex works intended for the knowledgeable choirs and singing societies. In none of the pieces is originality sought. Nevertheless, the sound is a counterpart of the rocky soil and questing spirit that typified many of his contemporary New Englanders. Billings's music held the attention of music lovers for its melodic expression, effortless vitality, and suitability to the requirements and limitations of amateur singers. No matter what the vocal part, it is not hard to sing and enjoy. All the singers are given interesting lines to engage their attention. If some of the notes in a part do not please, the composer occasionally offers the singer 'choosing' notes from which he or she can select." (Nicholas Tawa, "From Psalm to Symphony," p. 37-38) "In early 1782, of the 264 musical compositions published by American-born writers, 226 of them were by Billings. Of the 200 anthems published in America by 1810, over a quarter were written by Billings." (Elizabeth Axford, "Song Sheets to Software" p, 5.) Rare. OCLC records only six copies and none outside the United States. Sabin 5415, Evans 26673, RISM, A/I/1, B2655, Britton & Lowens 104. Without the engraved frontispiece as most copies. General usual browning, moderate stains, primarily through the introductory section, somewhat darker in the final fifteen pages, the penultimate leaf with worming extending just into the lower line of music, the final leaf torn and with the top of music mostly perished. Approximately five other pages with tears or small worm holes in the margins, none which affecting the music. In contemporary paper boards, restored First edition of Billing's last work.

        Observations on the Genus Mesembryanthemum, in Two Parts, containing scientific descriptions of above one hundred and thirty species, about fifty of which are new; directions for their management; new arrangements of the species; references to authors; and a great variety of critical, philosophical, and explanatory remarks.

      London: Printed and Sold for the Author by J. Barker, -. First edition. 1794 - Pp. (4), 480. Original full cognac-brown morocco leather, spine with seven pairs of gilt panel lines that border six compartments, one compartment has a red morocco spine label lettered in gilt, edges of all boards have elaborate gilt decorations, all page edges with faint speckle decorations, 8vo. This work was issued in two parts each with its own title page; the first was published in 1794 and the second part in 1795 – both parts have continuous pagination. See also Stafleu and Cowan no. 2488. Haworth (1768-1833) was a British gardener and entomologist who was also a leading authority in succulent plants; he had a garden in Chelsea where he grew succulents. Haworth grew species of the genus Mesembryanthemum, a prostrate succulent plant native to Africa, Sinai and southern Europe, in his garden. Haworth died of cholera that he possibly contracted on a plant-collecting trip to Africa. Armorial bookplate of Earl Fitzwilliam – this is the title in both the Peerage of Ireland and the Peerage of Great Britain held by the head of the Fitzwilliam family. This volume likely belonged to the fourth Earl, William Fitzwilliam. Also on the front endpaper is a printed label of the place name: Milton, Petersborough. This place name is also connected with William Fitzwilliam. The title page has just a touch of foxing, the remainder of the text and the fine leather binding are bright and clean; a near fine copy in a very attractive binding.

      Breslau, Wilhelm Gottlieb Korn, 1794 - 1796. XX, 476 S., 2 Bl., 274, 451, 484 S. Vollständiges Werk in 4 Bänden. Braune Original-Halblederbände mit goldgeprägten Rückentiteln und goldenen Ornamentbändern; Buchdeckel in anthrazitfarbener Marmorierung und mit Lederecken. Hauptwerk des schottischen Ökonomen und Begründers der klassischen Nationalökonomie, Adam Smith (1723 - 1790), das erstmalig am 9. März 1776 unter dem Titel \"An Inquiry into the Nature and Causes of the Wealth of Nations\" erschien. Smith entwickelte hier eine liberale Gegentheorie zum seinerzeit in Europa wirtschaftspolitisch vorherrschenden Merkantilismus und schuf das theoretische Grundgerüst einer liberalen Wettbewerbsökonomie und ihrer gesamtwirtschaftlichen Steuerungsfunktionen (Prinzip der \"unsichtbaren Hand\"). Bei der vorliegenden Ausgabe handelt es sich um die erste vollständige Übersetzung des Werkes ins Deutsche (eine erste Übersetzung in zwei Bänden war 1776 und 1778 von Johann Friedrich Schiller unter dem Titel \"Untersuchung der Natur und Ursachen von Nationalreichthümern\" erfolgt), die von dem Philosophen Christian Garve (1742 - 1798) vorgenommen wurde. Garve, der in seinem sozialen und ökonomischen Denken in hohem Maße von der englischen und schottischen Aufklärung beeinflußt war, gilt neben Kant, mit dem er sich eine wissenschaftliche Kontroverse lieferte, als einer der popupärsten deutschen Philosophen des späten 18.

        ENSAIO ECONOMICO SOBRE O COMERCIO DE PORTUGAL E SUAS COLONIAS

      Lisbon, 1794. Half title. Small quarto. 19th-century black polished calf and marbled boards, spine gilt, leather label. Bookplate of John Carter Brown on front pastedown, with his ink stamp on fourth leaf. Some light soiling on half title, else internally clean. Very good, untrimmed. The scarce first edition of the "best known work by Azeredo Coutinho, the controversial figure of the Brazilian Enlightenment" (Borba de Moraes). Azeredo Coutinho (1742-1821) was a "member of the new rich sugar aristocracy of the Campos dos Goitacazes in Rio de Janeiro, [who] held many important ecclesiastical posts in Brazil and in Portugal and repeatedly prodded the government to undertake reforms that would benefit the economies of both the kingdom and her most vital colony. Thus, in 1791 he strongly opposed new price restrictions on sugar, arguing that higher prices would allow Brazilians to buy more goods from Portugal. Three years later he published a series of reform proposals in 'AN ECONOMIC ESSAY ON THE COMMERCE OF PORTUGAL AND HER COLONIES,' in which he revived the century-old argument that the 'true mines' of Brazil were her agricultural resources, not the gold placers which had produced illusory gains" (CAMBRIDGE HISTORY). Like many works of this time period, this piece was probably written in Brazil and then printed in Lisbon, as there was no printing press in Brazil itself until 1808. An interesting look at the economics of the sugar trade in Brazil.

        UNITED STATES, DECEMBER 30th, 1794. GENTLEMEN OF THE SENATE AND THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES. I LAY BEFORE YOU A REPORT MADE TO ME BY THE SECRETARY OF WAR RESPECTING THE FRONTIERS OF THE UNITED STATES [caption title]

      [Philadelphia, 1794. Original blue-grey wrappers, stitched as issued. Lightly soiled. Very good, untrimmed. In a half morocco box. This copy bears the ownership signature on the front wrapper of Stephen Row Bradley. Bradley (1754-1830) graduated from Yale and served in the Continental Army and in a variety of judicial and political posts in Vermont before becoming the first United States Senator from that state, in 1791. He served in that position until 1795, and again in the U.S. Senate from 1801 to 1813, as a Democratic Republican. A very rare report and a remarkably frank and candid assessment from Secretary of War Henry Knox regarding conflicts with Indians on the frontier, especially in Ohio Territory and Georgia. With a candor that no modern Defense Secretary could approach, Knox lays much of the blame for conflicts with frontier tribes at the feet of unruly, grasping Americans: "The desires of too many frontier White people to seize by force or fraud upon the neighbouring Indian lands has been, and still continues to be, an unceasing cause of jealousy and hatred on the part of the Indians, and it would appear upon a calm investigation that until the Indians can be quieted upon this point and rely with confidence upon the protection of their lands by the United States, no well grounded hope of tranquility can be entertained. The encroachment of White people is incessantly watched, and in unguarded moments, they are murdered by the Indians. Revenge is sought and the innocent frontier people are too frequently involved as victims in the cruel contest. This appears to be a principal cause of Indian Wars....It seems that our own experience would demonstrate the propriety of endeavouring to preserve a pacific conduct in preference to a hostile one with the Indian tribes. The United States can get nothing by an Indian war, but they risque men, money and reputation. As we are more powerful and more enlightened than they are, there is a responsibility of national character, that we should treat them with kindness and even liberality. It is a melancholy reflection that our modes of population have been more destructive to the Indian natives than the conduct of the Conquerors of Mexico and Peru. The evidence of this is the utter extirpation of nearly all the Indians in most populous parts of the Union." Knox does not directly blame the United States government for the past treatment of the Indians or for the conduct of settlers on the frontier, but he encourages the President to continue the practice of making treaties with the tribes, and recommends the construction of more forts on the frontier, especially along the boundaries with Indian tribes. Knox also encourages the tribes to be proactive in handing over members responsible for the killing of whites, in order to dampen reprisals from settlers. Washington, in transmitting the report, observes: "I feel confidence that Congress will devise such constitutional and efficient measures as shall be adequate to the great objects of preserving our treaties with the Indian tribes, and of affording an adequate protection to our frontiers." NAIP locates only three copies, at the Library of Congress, the American Antiquarian Society, and the Boston Athenaeum. A fascinating review of American Indian policy in the early days of the Republic. Rare, and with a significant provenance, from a Democratic- Republican Senator from Vermont.

        The European Part of the Russian Empire, from Maps Published by the Imperial Academy at St. Petersburg, with the New Provinces on the Black Sea

      London: Laurie & Whittle, 1794. unbound. Map. Engraving with hand coloring. Image measures 18 1/2" x 50". This magnificent and rare map of the Russian Empire covers the European as well as the Asian portions of Russia. It extends from the Black Sea east to Kamchatka and the Bering Sea and includes Novaya Zemlya in the Arctic. Includes parts of neighboring Poland, Scandinavia and China. Shows beautifully rendered topography rendered in profile. The most interesting feature is the mapping of Kamchatka and vicinity. The exploration tracks to the Kuril Islands are noted and "Behring's Island" is identified, where the great Arctic explorer ultimately died in 1741. Sakhalin is speculatively mapped as to separate islands with the lower islands identified as "Ezzo". Published by Laurie and Whittle in Kitchin's "General Atlas", this is one of the finest maps of Russia from a 18th century atlas. In good condition with some offsetting. Minor foxing with minimal edge wear. Toning over folds. Thomas Kitchin (1719-1784) was an English engraver and map-maker. His maps and atlases of England earned him the position of hydrographer to the King. This large map of the Russian Empire is an impressive example of his work. Robert Laurie (c. 1755 - 1836) and James Whittle (1757-1818) were London-based map and atlas publishers active in the late 18th and early 19th century. Their firm combined Laurie's engraving skills with Whittle's social contacts and print sales experience. Together, they published numerous maps and atlases, often enlisting prominent cartographers such as Kitchin, Faden, Jefferys and others to update and modify their plates.

        Reise nach Kopenhagen im Sommer 1793. Auszug aus dem Tagebuch. Durchaus bloss für Freunde.

      o. Dr.,, O. O., 1794 - O. O., o. Dr., o. J. (1794). 12°. Titel, 449 Seiten. Original-Interimsbroschur. Weigelt 306; Goedeke IV/1, 274, 69; Schulte-Strathaus 185; Kippenberg 5548; Denkschrift J.C. Lavater (1902), 51; Stewart, Die Reisebeschreibungen und ihre Theorie im Deutschland des 18. Jhdts. (1978), 170f. - Erste Ausgabe. Druckort gemäss Schulte-Strathaus und Wilpert/Gühring ist Zürich, Goedeke und Kayser zitieren "Hamburg, bei Gundermann, 1794". Auf der Innenseite des Vorderumschlages ein handschriftliches Gedicht von zehn Zeilen, datiert 1794, und gezeichnet "Georg an Jacques", vermutlich von Lavaters Schwiegersohn und Biograph Georg Gessner (1765-1843). Daneben weist unser Exemplar fünf handschriftliche Korrekturen oder Ergänzungen (S. 289, 291, 355, 357 und 363) sowie zwei Durchstreichungen (S. 435 und 437) auf, wohl auch von Gessners Hand. - Seit 1791 hatte Lavater Verbindung mit den "Kopenhagener Sehern", einer aus vornehmen Mitgliedern bestehenden geheimen Gesellschaft, die behaupteten, die Wiederkunft Christi vorzubereiten. Vor allem um sich mit diesen "Wissenden" in Verbindung zu setzten, reiste Lavater, einer wiederholten Einladung des dänischen Ministers Graf Bernsdorff folgend, zusammen mit seiner Tochter Nette am 20. Mai 1793 über St. Gallen, Bregenz, Augsburg, Nürnberg, Erlangen, Bayreuth, Hof usw. nach Kopenhagen. Seine Aufzeichnungen schliessen mit dem 28. Mai 1794. Von einer geplanten Fortsetzung wurden aber nur wenige Bogen gedruckt. Lavaters Reisewerk fand beim Lesepublikum beträchtlichen Zuspruch, löste aber auch eine Kontroverse aus, auf deren Höhepunkt 1795 zwei Parodien von A. von Knigge und G.G. Rebmann erschienen.

        Eigenh. Brief m. U.

      Paris, 19. Messidor II (7. Juli 1794). - 1½ SS. Folio. An seinen Kollegen Dupuis, über dessen erfolgreiche Arbeit er sich freut ("que tu faisois le plus grand bien dans ta mission"). Er setzt sich für steuerliche Entlastungen für seine Gemeinde Mornant ein: „[elle] a eprouvé des taxes revolutionaires trez multipliées qui ont ete imposées au hazard", und gibt Beispiele dafür, wie den Bürger Duchamp, der die Adelssteuer von 500 Livres habe zahlen müssen: „C’est un brave laboureur, excellent patriote, et a qui la commune vient de donner le meilleur certifficat de civisme, en le nommant depuis peu officier municipal. Ce bon citoien est mon frere-de-lait". Er fordert die Rückerstattung dieser ungerechten Belastung.

        History of The Mission of The United Brethren Among The Indians of North America.

      London: Brethren's Society. 1794, 39. First English edition. 8vo. Bound in recent full speckled calf gilt with a burgundy title label. Edges speckled. Plain endpapers. Internally pretty clean, a little isolated browning and foxing here and there, some customary offsetting, a repair to the title page and a spot of archival strengthening to the folding map. The final index/ads leaf has a shallow tear with some loss to the, bottom margin, not affecting text. Very good. Probably the best 18th century "authority" on the native american tribes and cultures, covering some of the customs, languages, and beliefs of various tribes; the natural flora and fauna of their various locales and the occasional cheery second hand account of a massacre. The information is mainly accumulated from the writings of David Zeisberger who served as a missionary in the Americas for nearly fifty years. A fascinating collection.

        THIRD CONGRESS OF THE UNITED STATES...AN ACT TO ERECT A LIGHTHOUSE ON THE HEAD-LAND OF CAPE HATTERAS; AND A LIGHTED BEACON ON SHELL CASTLE ISLAND IN THE HARBOR OF OCCACOCK IN THE STATE OF NORTH CAROLINA [caption title]

      Philadelphia, 1794. Minor foxing and soiling, slight edge wear, old fold lines. Very good. An important act passed by the Third Congress, authorizing the construction of the lighthouse at Cape Hatteras, one of the most prominent navigation landmarks on the East Coast. Though this act was passed in 1794, construction did not actually begin until 1799, and the lighthouse was not put into use until 1803. "The Cape Hatteras Lighthouse protects one of the most hazardous sections of the Atlantic Coast. Offshore of Cape Hatteras, the Gulf Stream collides with the Virginia Drift, a branch of the Labrador Current from Canada. This current forces southbound ships into a dangerous twelve-mile long sandbar called Diamond Shoals. Hundreds and possibly thousands of shipwrecks in this area have given it the reputation as the 'Graveyard of the Atlantic'" - National Park Service. "Approved - May the thirteenth 1794" and signed in print by Speaker of the House Frederick Augustus Muhlenberg, Vice President John Adams, and President George Washington. Variant states of other acts of the Third Congress are known, and this issue is that which also has the printed lines "Deposited among the Rolls in the Office of the Secretary of State" and "Secretary of State," and signed in manuscript by the second Secretary of State, Edmund Randolph. NAIP locates copies at the Library of Congress, Rhode Island Historical Society, and the American Antiquarian Society; OCLC locates just three more. 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.
