        Description of a forty-feet reflecting telescope.

      . London, The Royal Society of London, 1795. pp. 347-399, plus 19 folding plates showing a total of 47 figures, including the famous huge foldout plate of this enormous telescope. Contemporary half calf over marbled boards.l The forty-foot reflector telescope that William Herschel (1738-1822) built at Slough (near Windsor) in the late 1780's was at that time the largest in the world. It was compared in the popular press to the Colossus of Rhodos and other wonders of the world. The telescope is even mentioned on the Ordnance Survey map. The construction was supported by King George III, and built by Herschel, his assistant and sister Caroline. In this paper, Herschel gives detailed insight into the construction and functionality of the telescope. The article is illustrated with 19 plates, including the famous enormous foldout view of the telescope, and was published in the Philosophical Transactions for the year MDCCXCV (1795), Part II. This is the original edition, not the abridged one, with just one plate included in the Herschel paper. Additional papers of interest include the massive paper titled "An account of the trigonometrical survey carried on in the years 1791, 1792, 1793, and 1794, by order of his grace the Duke of Richmond..." presented by the Duke. This includes a very large folded map of southern England from Dorchester to Hastings, and including the Isle of Wight. This edition also includes the illustration of a new transit instrument, and a rare early paper on marsupial ontogeny titled "Some observations on the mode of generation of the Kanguroo, with particular description of the organs themselves", by Everard Home, with fine illustrations. Boards rubbed and detached, spine cover mostly perished. Most plates, but not the very large telescope plate, a bit toned, especially in the margins. Otherwise a very good clean and unmarked copy. DSB VI, p. 329; Houzeau & Lancaster, p. 918..

Mit kalligraphisch ansprechend verfasstem Titelblatt in Rot und Schwarz, umrahmt von einer farbigen ornamentalen Titelbordüre. Hinten handschriftlich unterzeichnet vom damaligen Bürgermeister Franz Carl von Barth, datiert 1796, sowie vorne signiertes Anschreiben "Serenissimus Elector", von Freiherr von Hertling (ev. Philipp Freiherr von Hertling, geb. 1756 in Mannheim, gest. 1810 in Aschaffenburg, Jurist, Gesandter, Hofgerichtsdirektor), in dessen Namen auch Kurfürst Karl Theodor das Schreiben gegenzeichnet, datiert 16.

Obwohl der Kurfürst bereits im darauffolgenden Jahr nach München zurückkehrte, kam es am 21. Mai 1791 zu einem neuen Eklat: Der Rat der Stadt wurde gezwungen, in der Maxburg vor einem Bildnis Karl Theodors Abbitte zu leisten (Der Kniefall des Münchner Rats vor dem Bild des Kurfürsten Karl Theodor am 21. Mai 1791 in der Maxburg).

A very attractive copy. First edition of the finest and most durable expression of the ultimate perfectibility of man. "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. Unlike Godwin, he does not preach absolute equality, but equality of opportunity" (PMM). "The aim of the Esquisse was to demonstrate man's progressive emancipation, first from the arbitrary domination of his physical environment and then from the historical bondage of his own making" (Encyclopedia of Philosophy II, 184). By linking the question of human progress with that of population, Condorcet also anticipated the work of Malthus (see Spengler, French Predecessors of Malthus).

        Autograph Letter, signed, to his step-son, JOSEPH TALLCOT ("Beloved Son Joseph Tallcot"), in "Nine Partners near the Brick Meetinghouse" (Hudson, New York), on the ravages of the epidemic of yellow fever in New York City

      New York, 1795. 3 pages on single bifolium, in ink; address on final page. Folio. Old folds with tears, a few perforations, with loss of a few letters; stained. "O the Necessity of a Preparation for Death ..." In the summer of 1795, a terrible epidemic of yellow fever broke out in New York City. Even as public officials tried to hide the reality of the epidemic, the fever quickly spread throughout the city, and hundreds died. LOT TRIPP, it appears, was a druggist, medical practitioner, apothecary, and devout Quaker in New York City when the disease struck; and in this harrowing letter to his stepson, JOSEPH TALLCOT (1768-) Tripp recounts the story in graphic detail: "... About maybe two months past a Burning Bilious or Yellow fever made its appearance in this City. The health officer Dr. Malachi Treat & a young man by name Payne, one who examined the Unloading of vessels, were taken & died of it. It was then supposed to be imported by some vessels from the West Indies, but no confirmation of it, as it soon made its appearance in many houses in Water Street & Dover Street - between Peck & New Ships, & numbers died ... it soon after spread in various Parts of the Town, in Cherry, Rosevelt, Chesnut, James, Katherine & Oliver Streets, & abundantly in a little Street near the shipyards. There were a great number of New Irish settlers crowded in that part of the Town, & the Scene has been Truly Melancholy & awful. Many Poor Creatures hurried with great Precipitation, out of time in all the horrors & confusions of body & mind that can be expressed & many appeared Very Stupid, & some thinking themselves almost well when death ensued in a few moments, many have suffered & I believe many have died for want of Proper Nourishment & Attendance. Some have crept away in __ (?) places & Died alone, Abundance of the Inhabitants moved out & left their house, with a servant or 2 & some others who have done abundance in searching the town Looking up the distressed & administering to their comfort, amongst which number Richardson Underhill has been a large Sharer. Isaac Proctor, Ejnos Alby, Danniel Larrabee, Father Stratton, Daniel Nawthurst, David Johnson, Edmund Prior & Robert Browne & one Penny a Barber has done abundance. Some of the above have spent a Pretty deal of their interest to relieve the Needy ..." By the time Tripp was writing this, over 700 people had died in the terrified city since the outbreak, and there follows in Tripp's account a poignant list of the names of victims - including members of his own family and close friends, including, finally, himself. Tripp closes with this admonition to Tallcot: "O the Necessity of a Preparation for Death whilst in a state of Health & soundness of Body & Mind. May that be each of our engagements, so that we may be ready when called, let it be at What Watch of the night it may ..." Evidently Tripp was an apothecary from the Quaker city of Hudson, New York, as he advertised himself in in the local paper (Hudson Gazette) of 1785 "Lot Tripp, Drugs and Medicines". Tripp was the author of a small pamphlet entitled DIRECTIONS FOR MARINERS ON VOYAGES IN HOT AND COLD CLIMATES. HOW TO TREAT THE SICK, AND TO USE THE MEDICINE CONTAINED IN THE CHEST, which by 1836 went through 6 printings. Joseph Tallcot (1768-1853) was born near Nine Partners, N.Y., the son of Quakers Gaius Tallcot and Sarah Causeten Tallcot. He was educated at Nine Partners School and later entered into the drug business with his father. Tallcot established a school which later became the Friends School at Nine Partners, and he himself was the author of THE FRIENDLY VISITANT and THE CHILD'S COMPANION. In MEMOIRS OF JOSEPH TALLCOT, an obituary of Tripp is quoted: "Died on Monday last, in the 54th year of his age, Doctor Lot Tripp, a member of the respectable society of Friends, and an ornament to his profession and to humanity. His practice was confined principally to the poor and friendless, to whom he administered relief without any other reward than that which arises from the luxury of doing good.".

        Beyträge zur Geschichte der französischen Revolution. (Hrsg. von Peter Paul Usteri). 7 Bände mit zus. 21 Stücken (alles Erschienene), gebunden in 11 schlichten Pappbänden d. Z. Mit 5 gestoch. Porträts. Die Orig.-Umschläge mit Ankündigungen und Inhaltsverzeichnissen sind beigebunden.

      (Leipzig, Wolf), 1795-1796.. . Vollständiges Exemplar einer der interessantesten Zeitschriften der Zeit, zu der viele ehemalige, später in Paris lebende Mainzer Klubbisten Beiträge lieferten; äußerst selten. Die 'Beiträge' sollen "unparteiisch" Material zur Beurteilung der Revolution liefern und schränken den Zeitraum dieser Informationen auf die neueste Epoche ein, "... in der der gute Genius der Revolution all' seine Kräfte zur Rettung Frankreichs aus dem Höllenpfuhle, in den es die mit Dummheit und Narrheit im Bunde gestandene Bösewichter-Rotte (d. i. die Jakobiner durch den terreur) gestürzt hat, aufbietet." Usteri hoffte auf die Möglichkeit, dass nach dem Sturz Robespierres die Revolution zu ihren Anfängen zurückkehrt. Dabei schreckt Usteri auch nicht vor sehr langen Beiträgen zurück, wie etwa Villates Erinnerungen an die Schreckensmänner St. Just, Barere und Robespierre. Die meisten Beiträge sind Übersetzungen französischer Zeitschriftenartikel, Memoiren und Flugschriften, die sich mit der 'Schreckenszeit' beschäftigen und von dem in Paris lebenden und "mit den Pariser Verhältnissen genau vertrauten" (ADB) K. E. Oelsner ausgewählt wurden. Entscheidend geformt jedoch ist die Zeitschrift von der Mitarbeit vieler ehemaliger in Paris lebender Mainzer Klubbisten, wie Anton Joseph Dorsch, Joseph Löw, Friedrich Lehne, Matthias Metternich und Georg Wedekind. Besonders für die Kenntnis der Diskussion um die Rheingrenze ist die Zeitschrift wichtig. Dorsch, Metternich und Löw fordern entschieden die Angliederung der besetzten Rheinlande an Frankreich und stehen damit in Gegenposition zu Rebmanns Forderung einer eigenen deutschen Revolution und zur Forderung der Cisrhenanen nach einer eigenen rheinischdeutschen Republik. Im 4. Stück findet sich auf S. 174 f. der Hinweis, dass Knigge durch Zimmermanns Intrigen verhaftet worden sei, eine Meldung, die im 7. Stück, S. 187 f. dementiert wird; man sei einer Fehlinformation aufgesessen. Eine Fortsetzung, von L. F. Huber herausgegeben, erschien bis 1797 unter dem Titel 'Humaniora'. - Stockfleckig, teils gebräunt. Exlibris der Hurter'schen Lesebibliothek in Schaffhausen. Das Kupfer zu Band 7 sollte mit der Fortsetzung 'Humaniora' nachgeliefert werden und ist hier nicht vorhanden. Wir können nur zwei weitere Exemplare im deutschsprachigen Handel seit 1950 nachweisen (1987 in unserem Katalog 28 und 2002 bei Trauzettel 68). - Hocks/Schmidt S. 67.

To the Police Magistrate Daniel Williams (later, Sir Daniel) about the fate of his son, written a little over seven weeks after the Battle of Genoa: "Dear Sir, The last time I was here the neutrality of Tuscany being but just settled I could not send to your son the 20, which you desired & which I should had it been possible have had the greatest satisfaction in sending, and at this time 3 Cartels are expected from Toulon [with] sick prisoners amongst whom I hope & have little doubt is your son.

        Histoire Philosophique et Politique des établissements (établissemens) et du Commerce des Européens dans les Deux Indes. Collection complète (10 volumes et atlas)

      Berry 1795 - 10 volumes in-8 (20.5*13), reliure cuir, dos à pièces de titre et de tomaison et à décor doré, roulette dorée sur les plats, IV+II+II+500+548+536+445+381+456+529+516+390+504 pages, frontispice dans chaque volume par Moreau le Jeune, l'atlas comporte 50 cartes (numérotées de 1 à 49, le numéro 17 est doublé) ainsi que 23 tableaux. L'histoire de ce livre est maintenant bien connue. Raynal, qui fut rédacteur au Mercure de France a plutôt été rédacteur en chef qu'auteur. Participeront à l'oeuvre Diderot et Madame de Stael pour ne citer que les plus célèbres. «Au milieu des sociétés philosophiques et littéraires qu'il fréquentait, il conçut ou on lui suggéra l'idée d'un grand travail ayant pour objet les colonies formées par les européens depuis la découverte de l'Amérique et du passage aux indes par la cap de Bonne-Espérance, et l'influence que ces grands faits avaient exercée sur la politique, le commerce et l'industrie de l'Europe, ainsi que sur la civilisation en général». «On sent bien que la main puissante de Diderot est passé par là. Laharpe et de Grimm témoigne qu'il y travailla et ce dernier affirme qu'il passa deux ans et q'un de l'ouvrage et de lui»Le livre est empreint de bout en bout des passions viriles de la grande école du XVIII° siècle. Citons le livre : «Cette soif insatiable de l'or a donné naissance au plus infâme, au plus atroce de tous les commerces , celui des esclaves. On parle des crimes contre-nature, et l'on ne cite pas celui-là comme le plus exécrable. La plupart des nations de l'Europe s'en sont souillées, et un vil intérêt a étouffé dans leur coeur tous les sentimens qu'on doit à son semblable. Mais, sans ces bras , des contrées dont l'acquisition a coûté si cher resteraient incultes. Et ! laissez-les en friche, s'il faut que , pour les mettre en valeur, l'homme soit réduit à la condition de la brute , et dans celui qui achète, et dans celui qui vend, et dans celui qui est vendu.» Malgré son écriture emphatique, sa structure désordonnée l'ouvrage n'en reste pas moins un imposant travail riche en idées que la révolution ne reniera point. Essentiel pour l'histoire des idées politiques qui sont d'une modernité et d'une virulence qui valu à l'ouvrage d'être interdit par Louis XVI. Remerçions pour cette fiche Monsieur Larousse et son oeuvre encyclopédique, citons pour les curieux quatre références récentes : Hans Wolpe, Raynal et sa machine de guerre ; l'Histoire des deux Indes et ses perfectionnements, Stanford, Stanford University Press, 1957. Michèle Duchet, Diderot et l'Histoire des deux Indes : ou, L'écriture fragmentaire, Paris, A.-G. Nizet, 1978.

        A System Of The Laws Of The State of Connecticut (Volumes I and II)

      Windham [Conn.]: Self-published, 1795 & 1796. First Editions. Both volumes have recently been rebound in 1/2 dark brown calf and brown cloth covered boards with gilt text stamping on the spines. Both are small octavos measuring 8" by 5 3/4" with the pages of the text blocks uniformly tanned to only a slight degree. Without dust jackets as they most likely never had jackets. This set was the first American law text. Vol. #2 has the list of subscribers which includes George Washington, John Adams and a number of others in Washington's cabinet, but not Jefferson or Hamilton. (Aaron Burr is listed under one of the New York subscribers.) (Sabin, 94078) Everett Goodwin , whose doctoral dissertation The Magistracy Rediscovered: Connecticut 1636-1818, wrote that Swift's work was "a milestone for several reasons: it was the first comprehensive treatise on American law of any kind. It became a manual of instruction not only in Connecticut, but in much of the frontier region all the way to Ohio. And, most important, it was the first step in Swift's almost singlehanded articulation of a new paradigm for the concept of adjudication in Connecticut."

Die Möglichkeit dieser Form war für ihn das System; denn nur indem die Vernunft aus einem einzigen Prinzip begriffen werden könne, sei sie als eine zu begreifen; damit gewinne sie überhaupt erst Überzeugungsfähigkeit und die Möglichkeit, in das Leben einzugreifen.

        AN HISTORICAL GEOGRAPHICAL, COMMERCIAL, AND PHILOSOPHICAL VIEW OF THE AMERICAN UNITED STATES, AND OF THE EUROPEAN SETTLEMENTS IN AMERICA AND THE WEST-INDIES

Publisher's original gray paper backstrips and blue paper boards, paper labels. Minor shelf wear. Volume one has a small repaired tear to 3D3v and 3D4 torn along top edge costing parts of the running titles and first line of text, small ownership signature on front blank of volume four, else a fine copy. Untrimmed. An advance or proof copy of the first edition of Winterbotham's extensive work on America. This copy has no date on the titlepage, the plates (where indicated) are dated "1794," and the paper is watermarked 1794. The engravings here are entirely uncolored, including the tobacco plant which is usually found colored, and in particularly excellent condition. Later copies are found with slightly more plates and plans; presumably this copy was bound before all matter was available, including all the maps, portraits, and the plan of Washington. Also, the plates are not distributed throughout the work, but rather found together in the first and second volumes. The directions to the binder is also not present, indicating the work was not completed before this copy was bound. A fascinating early state of a notable publication, entirely unsophisticated, with directions for cancels and other printed bibliographical data still present in the margins. The author was prosecuted for sedition as a result of two sermons preached in 1792, found guilty, and sentenced to two years' imprisonment and a fine of 100L for each sermon. He wrote the present work while serving a term in Newgate Prison. It treats the discovery and early settlement of America, the American Revolution, each of the states in the Northeast and South, the Northwest Territory, Canada, and settlements in South America and the West Indies. "A digest of more than two dozen contemporary sources, including the works of Adams, Franklin, Jefferson, Belknap, Gordon, Ramsay, and Raynal and census data, state constitutions, and religious tracts" - Gephart. Most of the handsome plates illustrate birds, quadrupeds and reptiles found in the West Indies. Includes a list of subscribers. HOWES W581("aa"). DNB XXI, pp.693-94. GEPHART 1039. SABIN 104832.

        Tableau des découvertes du Capne. Cook & de La Pérouse

      Paris 1795 - Engraved aquatint with original handcolouring, 440 x 530 mm. (sheet size); slight toning, a well preserved example. From ethnology to fashion. Hand-coloured engraving of the islanders of the Pacific.This rare engraved tableau is composed of twenty-four groups of two, three or four inhabitants from different areas of the Pacific, chiefly based on the discoveries of Cook and La Pérouse. As Forbes notes in the Hawaiian National Bibliography, Grasset's engraving was separately issued and was the only such large image by him to depict the peoples of the Pacific.Bernard Smith discusses the importance of Saint-Sauveur's costume studies in disseminating this exotic imagery: 'The engravings published in Cook's Voyages provided new visual information about many previously unknown peoples, and greatly enlarged Europe's knowledge of the family of man. Joppien has shown how important encyclopedias of costume and 'gallery of man' books were in this process of popular dissemination. But as artists copied the engravings so they altered them still further in the direction of European pre-conceptions, the anthropological and ethnographic intentions of the originals being diverted increasingly to fulfil the demands of taste and the intrinsic needs of decoration. A fascinating example is the hand-coloured etching by St.-Sauveur, the finest of the costume encyclopaedists of the late eighteenth century?' (European Vision and the South Pacific, p. 113).Grasset de Saint-Sauveur, was born in Montreal in 1757 and died in Paris in 1810. Like other artists of the period he was captivated by Pacific discoveries and here he shows figures from Nootka Sound on the northwest coast of America, Prince William Sound in Alaska, as well as Easter Island, Hawaii, Unalaska, Tahiti and Ulitea.

Content (second issue. Transport of Pleasure was first issue). "This set includes texts by various authors, including Mrs. Hunter, Shakespeare, and Metastasio. The final song in the set, "Transport of Pleasure," included sentiments that were a bit too racy for proper English society, for example: "… transported with pleasure, I'm blest beyond measure, and die with delight in her arms…". A new text was set immediately after initial publication, and the new version was titled "Content." Ray Heigemeir, Stanford Library Blog. Ref. Hoboken, Vol II (1971), Gruppe XXVIa: 31-36, p. 256, 259, 262; OCLC, accessed 04/15.

        Tableau des découvertes du Capne. Cook & de La Pérouse

      Paris, 1795. Engraved aquatint with original handcolouring, 440 x 530 mm. (sheet size); slight toning, a well preserved example. From ethnology to fashion. Hand-coloured engraving of the islanders of the Pacific.This rare engraved tableau is composed of twenty-four groups of two, three or four inhabitants from different areas of the Pacific, chiefly based on the discoveries of Cook and La Pérouse. As Forbes notes in the Hawaiian National Bibliography, Grasset's engraving was separately issued and was the only such large image by him to depict the peoples of the Pacific.Bernard Smith discusses the importance of Saint-Sauveur's costume studies in disseminating this exotic imagery: 'The engravings published in Cook's Voyages provided new visual information about many previously unknown peoples, and greatly enlarged Europe's knowledge of the family of man. Joppien has shown how important encyclopedias of costume and 'gallery of man' books were in this process of popular dissemination. But as artists copied the engravings so they altered them still further in the direction of European pre-conceptions, the anthropological and ethnographic intentions of the originals being diverted increasingly to fulfil the demands of taste and the intrinsic needs of decoration. A fascinating example is the hand-coloured etching by St.-Sauveur, the finest of the costume encyclopaedists of the late eighteenth century...' (European Vision and the South Pacific, p. 113).Grasset de Saint-Sauveur, was born in Montreal in 1757 and died in Paris in 1810. Like other artists of the period he was captivated by Pacific discoveries and here he shows figures from Nootka Sound on the northwest coast of America, Prince William Sound in Alaska, as well as Easter Island, Hawaii, Unalaska, Tahiti and Ulitea.
