Pappbd. d.Z. mit Buntpapierbezug (Ecken bestossen, etwas fleckig, Deckelbezug des HDeckels und Kapitale mit kleiner Fehlstelle). €usserst seltene Originalausgabe der Trompetenschule, deren AnfŠnge wohl schon in den 1760er-Jahren liegen.

JahrhundertÒ dar (D. Altenburg, MGG2P) und ".ist das wertvollste und umfassendste Quellenwerk zur Geschichte der Trompete" (NDB 1, S. 214). - Die gef.

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

      London. [1795].. Four volumes. 4,viii,[7],591; [4],493; [4],525; [4],415,95,9pp. plus an engraved frontispiece in each volume, seventeen engraved plates, and four folding letterpress tables. 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.

An apparently unrecorded impression of Hayden's second set of six canzonettas, with the last page being a blank (instead of p.1 or title verso, as with other copies of record located), no ads present at front or rear and with the music beginning on p. 2 title verso. Contains six songs: I. Sailor's Song ; II. The Wanderer ; III. Sympathy (translated from the Italian of Metastasio) ; IV. She Never Told Her Love (Shakespeare) ; V. Piercing Eyes ; VI. 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.

Benjamin Moore (October 5, 1748-February 27, 1816), President of Columbia College.

        Blick auf eine hochgelegene italienische Ortschaft.

      - Feder in Braun, grau und ein wenig braun laviert, auf chamoisfarbenem Bütten mit Wasserzeichen: Vogel. 16,9:29,9 cm. Verso: Italienische Ortschaft mit einer Kirchenkuppel. Feder in Braun, grau und braun laviert. Minimal fleckig und knitterfaltig, mit kleinen dünnen Papierstellen an den unteren Ecken, mit einigen winzigen Löchlein, die oberen Ecken ergänzt. Wohl Skizzenbuchblatt. Mit sicherem und flottem Strich hat der Zeichner den Blick über die Baumwipfel und Bäume hinweg auf eine italienische Ortschaft eingefangen. Das Wechselspiel von grau lavierten zu den allein mit braunem Federstrich umrissenen Partien verleiht dem Blatt großen Reiz. Nach dem Besuch der Kasseler Akademie brach Rohden schon als 17jähriger nach Italien auf. Seit 1795 lebte er vorwiegend in Rom. In Deutschland hielt er sich 1801/02 und 1811/12 auf und 1827/29, als er zum Hofmaler in Kassel ernannt worden war. Obwohl ihn diese Berufung und das damit verbundene Gehalt, wie J.M. Wagner (1777-1858) Anfang 1827 an König Ludwig I. schrieb, aus langjähriger Mutlosigkeit aufrichtete, ließ er sich bereits 1829 beurlauben, um nach Rom zurückzukehren. Die Unterstützung, die ihm auch nach der Entlassung aus dem Hofdienst zuteil wurde, sicherte seine Existenz, für die seine sehr sorgfältige, aber seit den 40er Jahren nicht sehr umfangreiche Produktion allein nicht ausgereicht hätte.

        Landschaft mit Blick auf ein Schlößchen, wahrscheinlich in der Umgebung von München.

      . Bleistift auf Bütten, rechts unten signiert "Franz Kobell fecit"; verso alte Inventarnummer. 18,7:24,5 cm. Bleistiftzeichnungen gehören zu den Seltenheiten im sehr umfangreichen zeichnerischen OEuvre Franz Kobells. Vermutlich um 1795 nach der Italienreise entstanden, als er sich mit seiner neuen Heimat München auseinandersetzte und Motive von München und seiner Umgebung in schlichten und unprätentiösen Zeichnungen wiedergab. Ein vergleichbares Blatt ist abgebildet in: Th. Herbig, Franz Kobell. Ein Landschaftszeichner um 1800, Traunstein/Reutlingen 1997/1998, Nr. 35, Abb. S. 27.. Nach einer Ausbildung zum Kaufmann in Mainz kehrte Franz Kobell 1762 in seine Geburtsstadt Mannheim zurück, wo er von seinem Bruder Ferdinand (1740-1799) auch künstlerisch unterstützt wurde. 1771-1778 bildete er sich zusätzlich an der Mannheimer Zeichnungsakademie aus. 1778 erhielt er von Kurfürst Karl Theodor von der Pfalz eine Pension, die ihm eine Reise nach Italien ermöglichte, wo er sich hauptsächlich in Rom aufhielt. Hier war er insbesondere dem Maler F. Müller (1749-1825), dem Dichter W. Heise und dem Bildhauer A. Trippel (1744-1793) freundschaftlich verbunden. Die Beschäftigung mit der Malerei N. Poussins (1594-1665) und Cl. Lorrains (1600-1682) hatte großen Einfluß auf sein späteres Werk; er wandte sich ganz und gar der Landschaftskunst zu. Bereits 1780 wurde er zum Hofmaler am 1778 nach München verlegten Mannheimer Hof ernannt. 1784 kehrte er aus Italien nah München zurück. Ab 1793 lebte er in Wohngemeinschaft mit seinem Bruder Ferdinand und seinem Neffen Wilhelm von Kobell (1766-1853) in München. Der zeichnerische Nachlaß des Künstlers wird auf mehr als 10.000 Blatt geschätzt.

First part contains an appendix with remarks by the Danish orientalist J. D. Michaelis, whose list of hundred questions to Carsten Niebuhr's expedition to Arabia in 1761 was a concrete source of inspiration for Ödmann's work. However, rather than in Arabia the well-read Ödmann sought the answers in the existing European literature. "Strödde samlingar" contains information and discussions regarding animals, plants and natural phenomena mentioned in the Bible. The work was also translated into German. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        The Way to Wealth or Poor Richard Improved

      12mo. Paris: Printed for Ant. Aug. Renouard, 1795. 12mo, (4), (2, blank) [83]-181, (5), 31 (ads), (1, blank) pp. With engraved portrait frontispiece. Contemporary pink paper-wrapped boards, printed label on backstrip, boards worn, label chipped, hinges cracked but holding. Beautifully printed with wide margins. First edition thus. An extraordinarily popular collection of Franklin?s proverbs, letters and dialogues, each with a separate title page. Of The Way to Wealth, Ford notes that it ?has been oftener printed and translated, I believe, than any other work from an American pen? (p.55). He calls this edition ?the prettiest edition yet printed,? adding that six copies were printed on large paper and eight on vellum. Observations sur les sauvages du Nord de l?Amerique noted by Ford as sometimes present is not included, instead this copy ends with a 31 page catalogue of books printed by the great Giambattista Bodoni who appears to have had a distributing arrangement with Renouard in Paris. The connection is especially nice as Franklin was known to be a great fan of Bodoni?s work, writing him a letter of admiration on October 14, 1787. Ford 135. Sabin 25596.

        Uebersichtung und Erweiterungen der Signal-Order und Zielschreiberie in die Ferne

      Leipzig: Breitkopf, 1795. Bergstrasser, Johann Andreas Benignus (1732-1812). Uebersichten und Erweiterungen der Signal-Order und Zielschreiberie in die Ferne, oder, neue Synthematographe und Telegraphe. 8vo. xii, 204pp. 16 folding engraved plates. Leipzig: Breitkopf, Sohn & Co., 1795. 225 x 132 mm. (uncut). Original plain wrappers, a little spotted, light wear to extremities. Minor browning & foxing, edges a little dust-soiled and frayed, otherwise a fine copy. First Edition, and rare, with OCLCciting only four copies in North American libraries (Smithsonian, Purdue, Lehigh, Am. Inst. Physics) and one in Europe (Niedersachs. Staats- und Univ. Bibl.). Bergstrasser, a German professor, published his first work on telegraphy in 1785 (Ueber sein am ein und zwansigsten Decemb. 1784: angekundigtes Problem einer Korrespondenz in ab- und unabsehbaren Weiten der Kriegsvorfalle, oder uber Synthematographik; issued the same year in French as Correspondance sur le probleme annonce le 21 dec. 1784 relativement aux distances que l'oeil peut parcourir. . . .). The following year Bergstrasser constructed an optical telegraph line between Feldberg, Homberg and Philippsruhe; not much is known about this device except that it might have used light flares (Raketen). Bergstrasser conducted his telegraphic researches at the same time that the Chappes were developing their highly successful optical telegraph network in France. Bergstrasser's researches were hamstrung due to lack of funding, however, and his writings were largely ignored by his contemporaries. The present work is a survey of telecommunications methods from ancient times to the close of the eighteenth century. It describes various systems of optical telegraphy, including shutter telegraphs, semaphores, mirror telegraphs, systems using the alphabet and / or numerals, Chappe's pendulum telegraph, the telegraph systems of Achard and Buschendorff, etc. It also touches on the problem of information coding.

        Cascata, e Ponte di St Rocco a Tivoli".

      1795 1795 - Radierung, Rom 1795, auf Velin. 37,4:27,8 cm. Literatur: Andresen 27, I (von II) mit der gerissenen Schrift. – Vorzüglicher Abdruck des 1. Zustandes, mit Rand um die Plattenkante. Aus der in Zusammenarbeit mit J.Chr. Reinhart (1761-1847) und J. Mechau (1745-1808) entstandenen Folge: „Mahlerisch radirte Prospecte von Italien", zu der jeder Künstler 24 Blätter beitrug. Provenienz: Sammlung J.N. Seiler, München, nicht bei Lugt. Nach einer Ausbildung in Hannover und einem einjährigen Studium an der Kunstakademie in Düsseldorf ging Albert Christoph Dies 1775 über Mannheim und Basel, wo er für einige Monate bei Chr. von Mechel (1737-1817) arbeitete, nach Italien. In Rom wandte er sich der Landschaftsmalerei zu und schuf Ansichten aus dem Albaner Gebirge, von Tivoli und von Neapel, daneben verdiente er sich seinen Unterhalt durch Aquarellieren von Umrißradierung im Auftrag von G. Volpato (1735-1803). In Rom pflegte er Kontakt zu G.B. Piranesi (1720-1778), der ihn auch unterstützte. Zusammen mit Johann Christian Reinhart (1761-1847) und J. Mechau (1745-1808) fertigte er 1792-1796 für den Nürnberger Verleger und Kunsthändler Johann Friedrich Frauenholz Landschaftszeichnungen aus der römischen Gegend an, erschienen als „Mahlerisch radirte Prospecte von Italien", 72 Radierungen, 1792-1798. Goethes Bekanntschaft machte er durch den Archäologen Friedrich Hirt, mit dem Dies in Rom mehrere Jahre zusammenlebte. 1796 ging er über Salburg nach Wien und ließ sich dort 1797 nieder. An der Wiener Kunstakademie wurde er Lehrer für Landschaftsmalerei und später Galeriedirektor des Fürsten Esterházy.

        The Environs of London:

      London: for T. Cadell, Jun. and W. Davies,, 1795-1811. being an historical account of the towns, villages, hamlets, within twelves miles of that capital; interspersed with biographical anecdotes. 5 volumes, quarto (332 × 258 mm). Crudely rebacked and re-cornered in half brown morocco, crimson and black morocco labels, marbled boards and endpapers. With 5 vignette titles, 1 letterpress title, 3 maps (Surrey, Middlesex, Kent), dedication plate and 85 plates. Bookplate to front pastedown, some occasional light foxing, browning to fore-edge, boards and edges a little worn, a very good copy. Large paper edition. The first edition was published in 1792?-1800. The principal work of the topographer Daniel Lysons (1762-1834), produced with the keen support of Horace Walpole, to whom the work is dedicated. Many areas which were "environs" to Lysons are now firmly inside London, including Battersea, Bermondsey, Camberwell, Lambeth, Chelsea, Finchley, Fulham, Hackney, Islington, Kensington, and Tottenham. As Walpole himself predicted in 1791, "There will soon be one street from London to Brentford; ay, and from London to every village ten miles around!

        Der Freistaat unter jedem Himmelsstrich oder die Constitution des Menschengeschlechts. XVI, 254 S. Schlichter blauer Pappbd d. Z. (berieben) mit Rückenschild.

      Berlin, Friedrich Maurer, 1795. - Außerordentlich seltene einzige Ausgabe dieser Theorie des Aufstands. "Aufstand ist . das Recht, welches die Natur dem Menschen gab, sich gegen alles aufzulehnen, was durch Herabsetzung seiner Moral sein Streben nach Glückseligkeit hindert" (S. 37). "Ich will . die ganze Welt umschaffen" (S. IV/V). Der anonyme Verfasser, wohl ein Vertreter des bürgerlichen Mittelstands, erläutert den Zusammenhang zwischen Gesellschaft und Aufklärung, indem er politische Stabilität zur Funktion einer intakten bürgerlichen Öffentlichkeit erklärt. Die erst noch durch eine Revolution zu verwirklichenden Ideale des "citoyen" sollen vom Bürgertum sowohl gegen die Ansprüche der privilegierten Schichten als auch gegen die des "Pöbels" gesichert und garantiert werden. In dieser Abgrenzung des Bürgertums von den besitzlosen Schichten offenbart sich das Dilemma der frühbürgerlichen Gesellschaftstheorie, die klassenspezifische soziale und politische Gehalte zu Attributen des Menschen schlechthin erklärt. – Titel gestempelt und verso mit Exlibris der Freimaurerloge zu den 3 Weltkugeln, Titel dadurch etwas wellig. Rücken mit Bibliotheksnummer. Teils etwas stockfleckig, gutes Exemplar. Seit 1950 nur dieses Exemplar im JAP. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Ideale Landschaft mit steiler Felswand, Wasserfall und Monument, rechts am Ufer zwei lagernde Figuren.

      . Feder in Braun, braun laviert, über Feder in Schwarz, mit Tuschlinie umrandet, auf Bütten mit Wasserzeichen: J Honig & Zoonen. 28,5:43 cm. - Mit leichtem Lichtrand ringsum, kleinere Schäden sehr sorgsam restauriert. Entstanden wohl um 1795/1800. Hier handelt es sich um eine meisterhafte und bildmäßig durchgeführte Landschaftskomposition, in recht großem Format. Provenienz: vermutl. Sammlung C. Wiesböck, Wien, vgl. Lugt 2576, von diesem verso bezeichnet "Franz Kobel gez.".. Nach einer Ausbildung zum Kaufmann in Mainz kehrte Franz Kobell 1762 in seine Geburtsstadt Mannheim zurück, wo er von seinem Bruder Ferdinand (1740-1799) auch künstlerisch unterstützt wurde. 1771-1778 bildete er sich zusätzlich an der Mannheimer Zeichnungsakademie aus. 1778 erhielt er von Kurfürst Karl Theodor von der Pfalz eine Pension, die ihm eine Reise nach Italien ermöglichte, wo er sich hauptsächlich in Rom aufhielt. Hier war er insbesondere dem Maler F. Müller (1749-1825), dem Dichter W. Heise und dem Bildhauer A. Trippel (1744-1793) freundschaftlich verbunden. Die Beschäftigung mit der Malerei N. Poussins (1594-1665) und Cl. Lorrains (1600-1682) hatte großen Einfluß auf sein späteres Werk; er wandte sich ganz und gar der Landschaftskunst zu. Bereits 1780 wurde er zum Hofmaler am 1778 nach München verlegten Mannheimer Hof ernannt. 1784 kehrte er aus Italien nah München zurück. Ab 1793 lebte er in Wohngemeinschaft mit seinem Bruder Ferdinand und seinem Neffen Wilhelm von Kobell (1766-1853) in München. Der zeichnerische Nachlaß des Künstlers wird auf mehr als 10.000 Blatt geschätzt.

        1795 ?S.W. TERRITORY? Early Tennessee FRAMED Map [Mero Territory]

      F & R Bailey, s.l. 1795 - (Maps) SCOTT, Joseph. S.W. TERRITORY. Philadelphia: Francis & Robert Bailey, 1795. First state; later states of this map change the title to 'Tennassee.' Engraved for inclusion in 'The United States Gazetteer - An Atlas of the United States'. Map measures 6 x 7 in.; framed piece measures 14.5 x 15.5 in. Uncolored. Some light toning and foxing. Evidence of prior folding. Very Good condition. This is the first state of this early Tennessee map. Notations include early settlements, military reservations and the location of Indian villages. Map indicates terrain in some areas [e.g. ?high broken ground? and ?way nearly level?]. The ?Mero? district is shown divided into Sumner, Davidson, and Tennassee counties with Nashville noted as ?Naskville? Fort Massac noted on the Ohio River. Portions of Kentucky, Georgia, North Carolina, and South Carolina included. In 1788 North Carolina established a Superior Court district to serve the Cumberland frontier. The district was named in honor of the Spanish governor of Louisiana, Esteban Rodrigues Miro, who had assisted the Americans during the Revolutionary War. The naming of the new district is credited to James Robertson, who was attempting to sooth tensions between the U.S. and the Spanish colonial government and gain Miro's assistance in controlling the Creeks and Chickamaugas, and to open the Mississippi River to Cumberland travelers. Robertson and his allies persuaded the North Carolina legislature to name the new district Mero, inadvertently misspelling the name. The first judge of the Mero District Superior Court was John McNairy, and one of his first actions was the appointment of Andrew Jackson as district attorney. The court served Davidson and Sumner Counties, as well as the counties created out of them, until 1809, when the superior courts were abolished. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Franska Capitainens och Riddarens Jean François de Survilles Upptaekes - resa I Soederhafvet

      Nykoping: Johann P. Hammarin, 1795. Octavo, 96 pp., early ownership notation and stamp to title-page, some moderate foxing; yet a very good uncut copy in old plain grey wrappers. Scarce Swedish edition derived from Georg Forster's translation of the Surville voyage account.Son of esteemed naturalist Johann Reinhold Forster, Georg accompanied his father on the second voyage of Captain James Cook to the Pacific and so established his reputation as an eminent naturalist and philosopher. Georg Forster had long experience translating scientific works, and his travels in the Pacific with Cook placed him in good stead as a translator of Surville. Indeed, Surville was in New Zealand waters at the same time as Captain Cook on his first voyage, although the two expeditions did not sight each other (it is speculated the two navigators sailed within 40 kilometres of each other in mid-December 1769).Kroepelian notes this is a 'Swedish version, anonymously translated and somewhat abridged by Carl Fr. Landell, of Forster's edited version in German of some narratives of Jean Francois Marie de Surville's voyage.' Forster's original German language translation of Surville was published in Berlin in 1793.

        [ETON COLLEGE]. Musae Etonenses: seu Carminum Delectus nunc primum in lucem editus

      London: excudit G. Stafford, 1795. FIRST EDITION. 3 volumes in 2, large octavo (9 x 6.3 inches). Vols. I & II with the text in Latin, vol. III with text in Greek. Pagination: xiv, [2], 336, [8]; x, 276, [4], 64, [4] including errata and list of subscribers. Slightly later full diced calf by INGALTON OF ETON: outer borders with double gilt fillet, insides with an ornamental roll, smooth spines gilt into six compartments, lettered in gilt direct, marbled edges and endpapers, with Ingalton's ticket on the lower pastedown of vol. I (spines slightly sunned, insignificant wear to binding extremities). A very fresh copy. Large paper copy, in an elegant diced russia binding by INGALTON OF ETON, signed with his ticket. Very few bindings by this Eton bookbinder are known. Indeed, we have been informed by Eton College Library that there are no bindings by Ingalton in their library (sic!) -- Ramsden ("Provincial Binders," p. 95) was unable to locate a single binding by Ingalton (also spelled Inglaton), and in fact could not determine if Ingalton was a binder, a publisher, or both. It seems likely that the latter was true, for in 1817 Ingalton reprinted the "Musae Etonenses" with additional material. A certain "T. Ingalton, Bookseller / Stationer" is listed in Robson's 1839 Directory of Buckinghamshire as residing on the High Street, Eton. Ingalton also published "The Kalaidoscope: A Periodical Conducted by the Eton Boys" (1833) and "Scriblerus Etonensis: he Art of Losing One's Remove" (ca. 1845). A fine set with the errata and subscriber's leaves; suitable for exhibition. * The collection was the work of the 17-year-old William Herbert -- his first book, edited as a student at Eton. In later life he became Dean of Manchester and pioneer of Northern Studies. "As a classical scholar, a linguist, and a naturalist, [Herbert] made a high reputation." (DNB). The large paper issue is scarce according to ESTC; the slim third volume, containing the Greek verse (here present), is decidedly rare. PROVENANCE: Edmund Pollexfen Bastard (1784-1838), M.P. for Devon (1816-30), a keen horticulturalist and one of the largest landowners in Devon, whose total holdings were estimated at some 15,000 acres. Bastard's Tutor-rival house at Kitley (Yealmpton, near Plymouth) was designed in the early 1820s by George Stanley Repton (son of Humphrey, and an assistant of John Nash). With the armorial bookplate of Bastard impaling Rodney. -- LITERATURE: Bradner, "Musae Anglicanae: A History of Anglo-Latin Poetry," pp. 328-330 et 309-314. -- REFERENCES: Lowndes, p. 1635.

Frontispiece portrait and title vignette after Ramsey by Reading, three [of four] plates after Stothard and Singelton by Audinet and others, eight head- and tailpieces (that for Winter after Stothard by Reading). pp. xiv, 233, [1, blank], [1, ad]. 1 vols. 8vo. Contemporary mottled calf, spine very worn, front board detached, lacking plate for Summer. Signed on verso of front free-endpaper "Clement C. Moore/Presented by Mr. Parker" in the hand of Mr.Moore. Signed Clement C. Moore This is a copy from the library of the Reverend Clement Clarke Moore (July 15, 1779-July 10, 1863), signed him on the verso of the front endpaper "Clement C. Moore." A Hebrew scholar and writer of verse, Moore is best remembered as the author of "The Night Before Christmas." He was born at the family&#39;s estate "Chelsea" in New York. He was the only son of the Rev. Benjamin Moore (October 5, 1748-February 27, 1816), President of Columbia College. "Chelsea," where he was born, was inherited from his mother&#39;s father, British Officer Major Thomas Clarke, and in 1819 Moore donated the land on which the General Theological Seminary was established.

        Capitainens vid Engelske Ammiralitetet, Wiliam Bligh's Resa i Söderhafvet Åren 1788, 1789, 1790

      Nyköping: Joh. Pet. Hammarin, 1795. Small octavo, woodcut headpiece; foxed, early inoffensive library stamps; a very good copy in contemporary half calf, a little bumped, paper manuscript label to spine chipped. Rare Swedish edition. First Swedish edition of Bligh's Voyage to the South Seas.Rolf du Rietz explains in the Kroepelien catalogue that this very rare version was anonymously translated by Carl Fr. Landell from Georg Forster's German edition of the Bligh account, and includes Forster's introduction. As with the German edition on which it is based, this book only includes the new material from the 1792 Voyage: that is, none of the Narrative section is included here, and a footnote explains that ?-dmann's Swedish translation of that part should be thought of as the "second volume", so-called. This explains, in passing, the otherwise rather cryptic "Förrste Delen" ("first part") noted on the title-page here. Such a publishing arrangement had been Bligh's original intention for the English edition, but he considered that some sections of the Narrative should be revised for republication.Ferguson noted only the Mitchell Library copy and another in the Kroepelien collection.
