KANT, Immanuel.
Friedrich Nikolovius, Königsberg, 1795. TP + [3]-104, Small Octavo. First Edition, First Issue (Warda 154). NOTE: in the first issue, the catchword "Welt" appears at the bottom of page [3] with a capital letter. The second issue corrected this mistake to the proper "welt" - using lower case. Kant's essay On Perpetual Peace, raises the concept of peace from a political to an ethical level. His thoughts are the clear outcome of the growing emphasis on the need to manage relations between states that are increasingly operating on an international scale. Kant, who knew Rousseau's Extrait du projet de paix perpetuelle [1761] (which is, in turn, based upon Saint-Pierre's fundamental work, Projet pour render la paix perpetuelle en Europe, published posthumously in 1713), here details the basis of practical pacifism. In his far reaching analysis of the necessary preconditions for the establishment of peace, Kant clearly anticipates later twentieth century developments such as the League of Nation and the United Nations. The social order that Kant recommended, based as it was on his analysis of man's nature, would permit a maximum of individual freedom and competition, yet would have enough power to restrain this freedom whenever it threatened to produce oppression or anarchy. He proposed a similar system for international affairs, each separate state would be free to run its own affairs, but a supra-national federation of sovereign states would have enough power to regulate international relations and prevent war. Kant believed not only in political progress-the history of the huma … [Click Below for Full Description]

Sale, George (translator).
1795. Bath:Printed by S. Hazard for J. Johnson [etc.], 1795. 2 vols. 8vo, xii, (2), 248 (Preliminary Discourse), 266; viii, 519, (12, index)pp. Engraved fold-out map of Arabia, three genealogical tables (two folding), and a plate illustrating "The Temple of Mecca." all from the 1735 first edition.Old calf rebacked, a good copy (tears in folding map repaired). § Fourth edition (the first thus) of the first translation of the Koran into English. Peter Harrington notes: "George Sale (c.1696-1736), although a solicitor by profession, was also a leading orientalist, having acted as corrector to the SPCK's Arabic translation of the New Testament (1727). His translation is prefixed by a long "preliminary discourse", a compendium of all that was known about the religion of Islam, itself separately translated into and published in several languages... In 1921 Edward Denison Ross claimed that Sale's version had not yet been superseded, and more than fifty years later Sale's objectivity still guarded him from criticism in Edward Said's Orientalism (1978)."

Philadelphia, 1795. Englisches Dokument auf Papier (handschriftlich ausgefüllter Vordruck), 24,7 x 31,2 cm. Certificate No. 1548, ausgestellt für den Chirurgen und Revolutionspatrioten Dr. Enoch Edwards (1751-1802). Datiert Philadelphia, den 18. April 1805. Zustand: linker Rand beschnitten, Falz mit Einriss. Papier leicht fleckig, rückseitig im Bereich von Morris' Signatur mit Pergamentpapier hinterlegt. Robert Morris, Jr. (* 31. Januar 1734 nahe Liverpool, England, Königreich Großbritannien; gest. 8. Mai 1806 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA) war ein britisch-US-amerikanischer Unternehmer. Als Unterzeichner der Unabhängigkeitserklärung ist er einer der Gründerväter der Vereinigten Staaten. Er wird wegen seiner Rolle bei der Absicherung der Finanzen der amerikanisch-kolonialen Seite im Amerikanischen Unabhängigkeitskrieg auch als "Finanzier der Revolution" bezeichnet. [. . .] Morris war später tief in erfolglose Landspekulationen mit Investitionen im District of Columbia verstrickt und kaufte über 6.000.000 Acres (24.000 km²) im ländlichen Süden. Zur Finanzierung des erworbenen Landes gründete er mit seinen Partnern James Greenleaf und John Nicholson die North American Land Company. Ein erwartetes Darlehen aus Holland kam nie zustande, weil Napoléon Bonaparte Holland überfiel. Die Napoleonischen Kriege ruinierten den Markt für amerikanisches Land, und Morris' Firma kollabierte. Obwohl er sich vor den Kreditgebern verstecken wollte, indem er sich in The Hills verbarg, seinem Landsitz am Schuylkill River in Philadelphia, wurde er festgenommen und im Prune Street Gefängnis i … [Click Below for Full Description]

These include:· Separation of power· Liberty and democracy are one in the same· The point of civil and criminal law is to ensure personal security· Qualities and flaws of governmental types'Spirit of the Laws' along with other works of Montesquieu were published as collection in 1795 by Didot in Paris.Item number: #7976Price: $950MONTESQUIEU, Charles-Louis de Oeuvres complètes de Montesquieu, nouvelle édition, avec des notes d'Helvétius sur "l'Esprit des lois"Paris : P.

Catullus. Blake, William.
1795. London: J. Johnson, 1795. 2 vols, in one, 8vo, xxxvi, 223, (1, errata); (2), 236, (1, errata)pp. With an engraved frontispiece to each volume by William Blake after Della Rosa. With an engraved frontispiece to each volume by William Blake after Della Rosa. Early marbled boards, modern calf backstrip retaining original red label, tips restored. Bookplate of Pamel and Raymond Lister, earlier ink signature of Horatio Carlyle dated 1862. § First edition with the Blake plates, and very uncommon in commerce though widely held in Institutions. Catullus (ca. 84-54 B.C.), Roman poet of Verona, is best remembered for the fresh and simplistic style of his love poems, elegies, and satirical epigrams, which were among the first in Latin to incorporate the mannered style of the Hellenistic school; his infatuation with one "Lesbia," as seen in twenty-five surviving poems, remains legendary. Although living a brief life, his works bore great influence upon the lyrics of Horace as well as the work of Virgil and the post-14th century English masters of literature such as Jonson and Tennyson.

The plate was next used for an 1822 edition by which time several small changes had been made by another engraver. Bentley, Blake Books, 475 I.

Acquaforte, 1795 circa, firmato "Vincenzio Tarchi", alla fine del testo descrittivo in alto al centro. Buona prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva, alcuni strappi restaurati, nel complesso in buono stato di conservazione. Si tratta verosimilmente di una prova di stampa, della tavola destinata a corredare l'opera "Firenze Antica, e Moderna Illustrata", tomo VI, di V. Follini, presso Anton Giuseppe Pagani & Comp., Firenze 1795, avanti il rimando alla pagina (pag. 381) e avanti i numeri di rimando alla legenda contenuta a pagina 382. Nel volume la lastra è così descritta: "Or tra le Feste fatte negli ultimi tempi quella di cui si dà il Rame è degna di ricordanza per la sfarzosità con la quale venne eseguita Rappresenta essa il ritorno in Lisbona di Amerigo Vespucci fingendosi il trionfo che conveniva a sì celebre Navigatore Essa fu eseguita ne giorni 2 1 26 e 29 Settembre alla presenza del Gran Duca Pietro Leopoldo poscia Imperatore di gloriosa ricordanza La Stampa in rame che dimostra tale Spettacolo esprime secondo i numeri le appresso significazioni tanto della Piazza suo ornato e Festa medesima Maria Novella."

JAY, John (1745-1829
1795. Two pages, 4to, a bifolium with integral address panel. Lightly browned, the address panel lightly stained, generally in fine condition. Item #404253 John Jay, having just returned from New York City to Albany, responds to a letter from Parsons. Jay discusses the general state of US politics and specifically the diplomatic relationship between the US and France following the XYZ Affair. He expresses concern about the state of affairs of the country, which he sees as "far from being agreable [sic]." His concerns are as follows: A. "Altho peculiarly blessed and having abundant Reason for Content & Gratitude our nation is permitting their Happiness to be put in Jeopardy by the worst passions inflamed and directed by the most reprehensible means. Whether the good sense of the People will avert the Dangers which threaten them, is yet to be seen." B. "If the sound and leading friends of their country would concur in opinions as to men and measures, their efforts would probably be successful, but unfortunately there is too little unanimity on many points." C. "It really appears to me that the mission of our Envoys to France has been treated with too much asperity. The President's [attachment] to the Dictator of Honor and good* faith, even supposing it to be scrupulous, was amiable and praiseworthy." Jay had been elected the second governor of New Yok in May 1795, as a Federalist; John Adams had been elected as president in 1796. After the US signed a treaty with Britain in 1793, France seized a number of American merchant ships. George Washington's first envoy to France to s … [Click Below for Full Description]

Moderate rubbing and some scuffing to boards, moderate rubbing to spines and extremities. Light toning to interiors, somewhat heavier in places, light foxing to a few leaves. A handsome set. ,250. * First edition. The first attempt to write a history of the law of nations, it also marked a new approach to the subject. Since the seventeenth century the law of nations was dominated by the theory of natural law, which posited the existence of legal principles shared by all ages, places and peoples. This theory shaped the work of such major jurists as Grotius, Pufendorf and Selden. It was enshrined during the eighteenth century by advocates of the Enlightenment. Ward rejected this theory. A Romantic, he had no use for universal systems. Instead, he appreciated the uniqueness of cultures and the differences between the past and the present. One of the first to apply Romantic ideas to the subject, he treated the law of nations as a malleable concept that changed considerably since antiquity.

SACHSISCHER POSTILLON
1795. "Rarissima veduta panoramica della città dal mare tratta dal ""Sachsischer Postillon"", opera stampata in dispense dal 1784 al 1804. Data la particolare struttura dell'opere queste vedute sono molto rare e quasi sempre mancanti alle collezioni ed ai repertori specializzati. ""Incisione su rame, edita in Germania nel 1795 circa. L'autore pubblicò per molti anni, a partire dal 1784, una rivista a dispense, illustrata inizialmente con stampe a carattere sia storico che sacro; dal 1794, fino al 1804, vennero poi inserite anche numerose vedute di città, che ne rappresentarono l'unica illustrazione. Le vedute di città della raccolta sono piuttosto rare, e quasi sempre mancanti ai repertori specializzati. La stampa, che riprende altre stampe settecentesche, raffigura tutta la città di Napoli vista dal mare insieme ai suoi immediati dintorni; presenta una bella dedicatoria in testa, ed al centro un medaglione raffigurante Roberto, conte palatino. Il campo di vista è molto ampio, ma topograficamente poco rispondente alla realtà e con prospettiva fortemente compressa. Molto evidente l'esagerato sviluppo in altezza dei principali edifici, peraltro spesso ben riconoscibili, che riprende l'impostazione grafica della Werner-Probst"" (cfr.

London: Printed for J. Johnson, 1795. Octavo (205 x 125 mm). Recent blue morocco, spine lettered in gilt, spine bands and covers ruled in gilt, marbled endpapers, gilt edges. Contemporary ownership inscription to title page, a couple of instances of underlining, numerous annotations in a contemporary hand, occasionally very slightly cropped. Half-title present with small chip at top left corner. Binding in fine condition; some light foxing and blemishes to contents. A very good copy. First edition in English of Esquisse d'un tableau historique des progrès de l'esprit humain, originally published earlier the same year in Paris. Condorcet's tract is the clearest and boldest statement of the enlightenment belief in progress. Condorcet wrote the work in 1794 while in hiding from Robespierre's agents, having voted against the execution of the king. Captured by the state, he was found dead the next day, probably having committed suicide to escape the guillotine. His manuscript was published the next year. "In the Esquisse. Condorcet traces the history of man through epochs, the first three covering his progress from savagery to pastoral community and thence to the agricultural state. The next five span the growth of civilizations, and knowledge down to Descartes, and the ninth describes the revolution of Condorcet's own lifetime, from Newton to Rousseau. The prophetic view of the tenth epoch shows Condorcet at his most original. He forecasts the destruction of inequality between nations and classes, and the improvement, intellectual, moral and physical, of human nature" (PMM). Th … [Click Below for Full Description]
