Goethe, Johann Wolfgang von, Dichter (1749-1832).
Titel und 3 Doppelseiten auf 4 Bll. Geheftet. Folio. In die drei Spalten "Erinnerungen", "Beantwortungen" und "Resolutiones" gegliedertes Geschäftsheft zur Buchhaltung des Weimarer Hoftheaters, dessen Direktion Goethe zwischen 1791 und 1817 innehatte. Unter seiner Führung gelangte die deutschsprachige Theaterkultur zu neuer Wertschätzung: Er etablierte ein festes Ensemble aus geachteten Künstlern, die auch die Regieanweisungen der Theaterdichter zu berücksichtigen hatten und so den dramaturgischen Vorstellungen der Autoren in zuvor in Deutschland nicht erreichter Weise nahezukommen vermochten. Im selben Jahr, in dem Goethe die vorliegenden Bögen abzeichnete, entstanden seine "Regeln für Schauspieler", die er den jungen Schauspielern Pius Alexander Wolff und Karl Franz Grüner im Rahmen eines Schauspielunterrichts diktierte und die 1832 in der Werkausgabe letzter Hand veröffentlicht wurden. - Die vorliegenden Einträge berichten etwa: "Laut der Autorisation vom 18. Juni 1794 sind für den Sänger Hn. Müller und dessen Sohn 11 rthl. wöchentlich auszuzahlen, seit dem 5ten October aber für den Vater alleine wöchentlich 11 rthl. ausgezahlet worden" (Erinnerung Johann Ludwig August Seyffarths). Die zugehörige Beantwortung durch Johann Christian Lindenzweig lautet: "Der Sänger Müller hat, obschon sein Sohn nicht mehr beym hiesigen Fürstl. Theater war, bis zu seinem Abgange von hier, lt. seiner eigenhändigen Quittung im Gage Buche, wöchentlich 11 rth. ausgezahlet bekommen, es bittet daher um hierzu noch fehlende Autorisatio." Die Entscheidung: "Paßirt." Am Schluss von Goethe und Franz … [Click Below for Full Description]

Steuben, Friedrich Wilhelm Ludolf Gerhard Augustin, Baron von
[N.p., but Halifax and/or Edenton, N.C.]: Printed by Hodge & Wills, Printers to the State, 1794. [4],73,[7],62pp. plus eight folding plates. Original drab paper-covered boards, calf backstrip. Edges worn, boards rubbed. A few leaves trimmed close or with minimal marginal loss, bottom corner of plate VI torn, affecting only the ruled border. Old bookplate on front pastedown, two near-contemporary ownership inscriptions. A nice, complete copy in good plus condition. A rare Southern edition, printed in North Carolina, of Von Steuben's famous manual, written expressly for the use of American troops during the Revolutionary War. Apparently, this copy once belonged to two different members of the North Carolina militia. Sam Tucker's ownership inscription on the verso of the titlepage reads, "Sam Tucker His Book this 28th Day of August in the year of our Lord and in the 23rd year of American Independence 1798 The Militia Mans Instructor." Arthur Graham's ownership inscription on the rear free endpaper reads, "Arthur Graham Lieutenant Wednesday May 24th 1797. Graham his Book February the 2 Day 1805." It seems that Lieut. Graham owned the book, gave it or loaned it to Tucker, then reclaimed it later. The German-born Steuben, well-trained in the highly disciplined military system developed under Frederick the Great, served as inspector general of the Continental Army. In this capacity, he wrote his REGULATIONS FOR THE ORDER AND DISCIPLINE OF THE TROOPS OF THE UNITED STATES on orders from the Continental Congress. First published in 1779, the work became the standard text for th … [Click Below for Full Description]

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.

"The Cape Hatteras Lighthouse protects on fo 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.

Complete in two volumes. ESTC No. T98289. Published the same year as the Dublin imprint. Written by Hester Lynch Piozzi, who states that this work is specifically for those who, like her husband, found English taxing. She refers to her Welsh ancestry when discussing that this work is intended for the use of foreigners in Britain so that they can learn the subtle differences in the meanings of words that could be mistaken for synonyms. Piozzi delves into the nuances of language for this work. The DNB notes that this work's 'discriminating definitions and characteristic excursions offer real insights into an eighteenth-century mind, and the kind of entertainment wholly absent from a dictionary of synonyms'. Hester Lynch Piozzi or Hester Lynch Thrale, was a Welsh-born diarist, author and patron of the arts. Piozzi's writings were used as an important source of information on eighteenth century life in England and on Samuel Johnson. CONDITION In full calf … [Click Below for Full Description]

The dedication to George Washington is a paraphrase of Taylor's original dedication to Queen Anne. A close reprint, termed the Ninth Edition, was published in 1798.

Brown calf leather binding with leather title label on spine. Missing original folding map. A facsimile map is provided. Leather joints are rubbed. Repairs made to front board and hinges. "Jefferson" signed on page 81 and is not his own signature. Previous owners inscription "Charles J. Hughes Jr., Denver Colo, May 2nd, 1888" written on front paste down. SCARCE in any condition. Not Ex-Lib. The second American edition of Jefferson's famous work. This is the only book-length work by Jefferson to be published in his lifetime, and has been called "one of America's first permanent literary and intellectual landmarks." It was largely written in 1781 and first published in Paris, in French, in 1785, then published in English in London in 1787. Written in the form of answers to questions about Virginia, the book supplies a description of the geography, with an abundance of supporting material and unusual information. As J.M. Edelstein notes: "Jefferson wrote about things which interested him deeply and about which he knew a great deal; the NOTES, therefore, throws a fascinating light on his tastes, curiosities, and political and social opinions." The map which accompanies this edition was executed by Samuel Lewis and depicts Virginia in considerable detail. The story of the creation of this book and its publishing history is an interesting one. It is told fully by Millicent Sowerby in her catalogue of Jefferson's library, where i … [Click Below for Full Description]

HUNTER, John.
FIRST EDITION. John Hunter, one of the greatest surgeons of all time, collected the material for this "epoch-making book" (G&M) while serving with the army at Belle Isle during the Seven Years' War. Published posthumously, it is easily the largest work by a British surgeon to date. His studies on inflammation in particular are fundamental for pathology, as there was little understanding of the subject before his time. He classified inflammation into three types, and was the first to assess and describe three essential factors of wound pathology: first, that an external agent in the air, and not the air itself, is a factor in wound inflammation; second, that a good blood supply is essential in maintaining the natural defences of the body; and third, that the presence of mortified tissue in a deep wound prevents healing and promotes the onset of sepsis. He was outstanding in importance to orthopaedic surgery among eighteenth century surgeons, and made epoch-making studies of the surgical diseases of the vascular system. He was acknowledged by Virchow as the founder of experimental and surgical pathology, and his collection of pathological specimens was at one time the finest in the world. G&M 2283. Grolier One Hundred (Medicine), 52. Lilly, Classical Works, 112. Willius & Keys, Cardiac Classics, pp. 263-275, reproducing Hunter's description of his own fatal illness, angina pectoris.

Act of Congress
(Printed by Childs and Swaine.) [Philadelphia.] 1794. Broadside, 13-1/4" x 8", Minor foxing and soiling. Old fold lines. Housed in a custom clamshell case with leather spine labels and gilt titles. 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 on fo 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 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 Muhlenburg, 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 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 adds just three more.

Brown calf leather binding with leather title label on spine. Missing original folding map. A facsimile map is provided. Leather joints are rubbed. Repairs made to front board and hinges. "Jefferson" signed on page 81 and is not his own signature. Previous owners inscription "Charles J. Hughes Jr., Denver Colo, May 2nd, 1888" written on front paste down. SCARCE in any condition. Not Ex-Lib. The second American edition of Jefferson's famous work. This is the only book-length work by Jefferson to be published in his lifetime, and has been called "one of America's first permanent literary and intellectual landmarks." It was largely written in 1781 and first published in Paris, in French, in 1785, then published in English in London in 1787. Written in the form of answers to questions about Virginia, the book supplies a description of the geography, with an abundance of supporting material and unusual information. As J.M. Edelstein notes: "Jefferson wrote about things which interested him deeply and about which he knew a great deal; the NOTES, therefore, throws a fascinating light on his tastes, curiosities, and political and social opinions." The map which accompanies this edition was executed by Samuel Lewis and depicts Virginia in considerable detail. The story of the creation of this book and its publishing history is an interesting one. It is told fully by Millicent Sowerby in her catalogue of Jefferson's library, where i … [Click Below for Full Description]

"Montesquieu was one of the great political philosophers of the Enlightenment. Insatiably curious and mordantly funny, he constructed a naturalistic account of the various forms of government, and of the causes that made them what they were and that advanced or constrained their development. He used this account to explain how governments might be preserved from corruption. He saw despotism, in particular, as a standing danger for any government not already despotic, and argued that it could best be prevented by a system in which different bodies exercised legisl … [Click Below for Full Description]
