        A Voyage to Botany Bay with a description of the Country, manners, Customs, religion, &c. of the Natives... [and] A Sequel to Barrington's Voyage comprising an Interesting Narrative of the Transactions and Behaviour of the Convicts; the Progress of the Colony...[etc.]

      London: C. Lowndes and... H.D. Symonds, n.d. [circa 1795] &, 1801. Octavo, engraved frontispiece and title vignette to the first work; a fine copy, completely uncut in original papered boards, spine partly defective, preserved in a folding cloth box. Complete with the sequel. A desirable copy of an early pairing of the first two Barrington Botany Bay works; entirely as issued, uncut in original papered boards. By the time Barrington was transported to Botany Bay on the Third Fleet of 1791, his name was legendary in England due to his daring criminal exploits. Chapbook accounts of his trial were bestsellers, and unscrupulous London publishers were quick to exploit his notoriety to market a string of books on transportation and the new colony. The first work to bear his name was A Voyage to Botany Bay, which first appeared in 1795. A number of editions were published in this form, some dated, some undated as here; all editions are scarce. So popular was this account that A Sequel to Barrington's Voyage was issued in 1800. It was quickly reprinted in 1801, at which time the publisher then released the two works together, of which the present copy is an unusually fine example. Although these titles were certainly not the work of Barrington, they nonetheless provided considerable detail on eighteenth-century New South Wales not available elsewhere. Their popularity points to an English public whose appetite for news of the new colony was not satisfied by the more prestigious and expensive journals of the First Fleet officers.

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

      Nyköping: Joh. Pet. Hammarin, 1795. Small octavo, woodcut headpiece; a little mild foxing, bottom edge of title-page neatly repaired yet very good in understated contemporary half calf. First Swedish edition. First Swedish edition of Bligh's Voyage to the South Seas. Rolf du Rietz's excellent note in the catalogue of the Kroepelien catalogue explains 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 Ödmann'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 copy and another in the Kroepelien collection.

Med ett löst bilagt delvis handskrivet brev av Rolf Du Rietz.. Du Rietz Bibliotheca Polynesiana 95. Ferguson Bibliography of Australia 216. Översatt av Carl Fredrik Landell. Den sista tredjedelen av resans första del, vilken innefattar det berömda myteriet på Bounty och efterföljande händelser, översattes och gavs ut 1792 i Uppsala. Det avsnittet - den i titeln till föreliggande skrift underförstådda "andra delen" - är uteslutet här, i stället redogörs för Bountys färd från England till Tahiti och Blighs hemfärd från Timor via Batavia till England. Översättaren avslutar sitt förord: "Så snart man ärhåller beskrifningarne öfver capitainerne Edvards och Bligh's här omnämnde senare resor, hvarom redan är föranstalltat, skola de genast blifva utgifna, såsom i ett sammanhang med detta verk." William Bligh (1754-1817) hade gjort karriär inom marinen och tjänat för kapten James Cook innan han fick befäl över skeppet Bounty 1787. Efter det bekanta myteriet 1789 sattes Bligh och de män som var lojala med honom på drift i en mindre båt. Efter åtskilliga umbäranden lyckades Bligh och hans män ta sig till ön Timor i nuvarande Indonesien

        Saturday evening The Husbandman's return from labour

      J. Brydone, London 1795 - A fine stipple engraving depicting a rural idyll in 18th-century England. The image shows a family outside the door of their cottage. The father has just returned from the field. His wife hands him his youngest child, whom he kisses fondly. His other four children are gathered companionably to his left: the eldest daughter sits quietly darning some stockings, her younger sister washes a younger brother. A second brother watches attentively as a pair of piglets eat the scraps from a wicker basket. What became known as the "deserving poor" was an ever growing Romantic concern throughout the 19th century, as the industrialization of England took hold. The Romantic ideal of families living in a hard but harmonious relation to the soil was already in 1795 fading away, as the long process of enclosure deprived people like these of the land they worked, forcing them to seek jobs in towns. So this was, at the time of publication, an already somewhat nostaligc look a rural family life. William Bigg "was a pupil of Edward Penny, R.A., and by choice of his subjects at least a faithful follower of his master. In 1778 he entered the Academy schools. Bigg delighted in depicting. children. The first of many engaging works of this class was exhibited in 1778, 'Schoolboys giving Charity to a Blind Man.' It was followed a year later by one similar, 'A Lady and her Children relieving a Distressed Cottager.' Besides these his 'Palemon and Lavinia,' the 'Shipwrecked Sailor Boy,' and 'Youths relieving a Blind Man' were highly popular works, and were all engraved. Two good pictures from his easel are preserved in the Cottonian Museum at Plymouth. by choice of subjects and general manner of treatment he would rightly be classed with Wheatley and Morland. He was highly popular in his day, and the best engravers were employed upon his work." (DNB). Stipple-engraving, by William Nutter, after Bigg.

Småskador upp- och nedtill på ryggen. Enstaka obetydliga lager- och småfläckar. En mindre solkfläck i yttermarginalen på s. 68. Liten reva närmast häftningen på den utvikbara kartan. Bra ex.. Översattes även till tyska 1798. Bengt Anders Euphrasén (1756-97) översatte Linnés "Termini botanici" till svenska 1792 men är mest berömd för sina insatser inom klassificeringen av fiskarna. Han var på 1780-talet anställd hos Clas Alströmer för att vårda dennes naturaliesamlingar. Genom Alströmers rekommendation erhöll han respengar av Vetenskapsakademien för att fara till St. Barthelemy och även några av de kringliggande öarna. Han skulle där insamla naturalier och författa en beskrivning över kolonin. Euphrasén anlände till St. Barthelemy med briggen Antonetta den 8 februari 1788 och återvände den 20 juni samma år. Vid sidan av denna beskrivning publicerade han några uppsatser i "Vetenskapsakademiens handlingar". Kartan användes första gången i Sven Dahlmans "Beskrifning om S. Barthelemy" från 1786. Den graverades av Gjörwell eller hans son. Planschen avbildar en vitfläckig örnrocka och togs fram för Euphraséns presentation av fisken i "Vetenskapsakademiens handlingar" 1790. Euphrasén slutade sina dagar som botanisk demonstrator vid Serafimerlasarettet

        Graf Benjowsky oder die Verschwörung auf Kamtschatka . Ein Schauspiel in fünf Aufzügen. [Count Benyowsky:The Conspiracy of Kamchatka, a tragi-comedy in five acts]

      Kummer, Leipzig 1795 - Octavo, engraved vignette on title, various annotated stage directions in red pencil; short tear to title, some wear to head of spine, a good copy in contemporary half calf, paper label on spine. Benyowsky exploits staged. Rare play based on the exploits of Hungarian adventurer Count Benyowsky in the Pacific Ocean, Benyowsky (actually Be?ovsk) was a Hungarian noble who was captured and imprisoned by the Russians for his support of the Polish nationalists. In 1770 Benyowsky was exiled in Kamchatka in eastern Siberia, at a time when there had been few European incursions in the region beyond the visits of Russian fur-traders. With the help of some fellow prisoners he managed to escape and commandeer a Russian battleship for a voyage to California via the northern Pacific. He navigated through the Aleutian Islands, but had to change course to Japan, Formosa, and Macao, where he arrived in 1771. On his arrival in France the following year, he was empowered by King Louis XV to establish trading posts on Madagascar. As self-proclaimed Emperor of Madagascar, he was to become a rich source of inspiration for writers, poets, composers, and painters.This play loosely based on Benyowsky's life is by German playwright August von Kotzebue, father of the famous navigator Otto von Kotzebue. In part because of Benyowsky's pro-independence beliefs, when the play premiered in American it was part of a bill which included the first ever public performance of the Star Spangled Banner, in Baltimore on 19 October 1814.

        Cries of London, Plate 6. Knives, Scissors and Razors to Graind. Couteaux, Ciseaux, Rasoirs a repasser.

      - London: Published by Colnaghi & Co. No. 132 Pall Mall, Jan. 1 1795. Colour printed stipple engraving. Printed on wove paper. In good condition, tight margins. Image size: 14 x 11 inches. 17 3/8 x 13 inches. The knife sharpener passes through The "Cries of London" was a recurring theme in English printmaking for over three centuries. These colourful prints form a visual record of London's "lower orders", the peddlers, charlatans, street hawkers, milkmaids, and grocers who made their living on the city streets. They give the viewer a glimpse of a long forgotten London where tradesmen would advertise their wares with a musical shout or a melodic rhyme. Different versions of the "Cries" vary in tone from idealistic visions of contented street vendors to satirical caricatures of humorous urban figures. One of the most famous series of "London Cries" is the group of pretty pictures executed by Francis Wheatley. Wheatley's series was immensely popular and enjoyed a long period of success in the English print shops. Between 1792 and 1795 Wheatley exhibited 14 paintings of the "Cries" at the Royal Academy. The pictures attracted a great deal of attention at the exhibition and Colnaghi & Co. quickly agreed to publish a series of engravings after Wheatley's famous series. Only thirteen of the fourteen paintings were engraved and they were offered for sale individually or in a portfolio collection. The prints, which were executed in stipple, were engraved by some the most noted engravers in England; artists such as Luigi Schiavonetti, Giovanni Vendramini and Thomas Gaugain all contributed their work to the series. Complete collections of the "Cries" remained immensely popular, and by 1910 they were fetching more than James Audubon's folio "Birds of America" at auction. This lovely print is plate eight in the series and depicts a cherry seller weighing out a portion of cherries for two eager children. Roberts F. Wheatley, R.A.

        Dürnstein, Ansicht von Stadttor und Stadtmauer.

      . Aquarell, teilweise über Bleistift, auf Velin, links unten signiert "Schubert."; verso signiert "Schubert.". 22,8:32,7 cm. Rand oben und unten unregelmäßig beschnitten, in den Ecken leicht bestoßen, links oben leichte Knickfalte.. In Nahsicht hält Schubert die auch heute noch kleine, in der Wachau gelegene Ortschaft Dürnstein in Niederösterreich fest, einem der bekanntesten touristischen Ziele in Österreich. Dabei zeigt er sich der Spätromantik verpflichtet, wenn er auch durch die Unmittelbarkeit des spontan erfaßten Landschaftsausschnitts erste realistische Züge erarbeitet. Der vor allem als Blumenmaler und Aquarellist tätige Wiener Künstler Schubert, Sohn des Malers Carl Schubert (1795-1855), war ein Neffe des Komponisten Franz Schubert. Er studierte bei T. Ender (1793-1875) und F. Steinfeld (1787-1868). Bekannt sind heute noch seine fast 300 Autogramme und Korrespondenzstücke von bedeutenden Persönlichkeiten des 18. und 19. Jahrhunderts, wie Maria Theresia, der Familie Auersperg und von Schriftstellerinnen und Schriftstellern wie Karoline Pichler, Nikolaus Lenau, Joseph Schreyvogel, Voltaire, Franz Grillparzer und Johann Gabriel Seidl, die er teils über Kontakte zur damaligen Kunstszene, teils aus persönlicher Sammelleidenschaft angesammelt hatte.

        Prolegomena ad Homerum sive de Operum Homericum prisca et genuina forma variisque mutationibus et probabili ratione emendandi. Volumen I (all that appeared).

      Halis Saxonum (Halle), E Libreria Orphanotrophei, 1795. 8vo. Contemporary half calf with five raised bands and gilt title-and tome-labels. Very neatly rebacked. Very nice and clean. An excellent copy. (6), CCLXXX pp.. Scarce first edition of the epoch-making work that founded modern philological scholarship and began the modern debate over the date of writing of Homer's works, creating in turn the two Homeric schools of thought, the Analysts and the Unitarians. Although the work bears on the title-page the words "Volumen I", no second volume ever appeared, and Wolf never made any attempt to compose it. "When Wolf took up his professorship in 1783, a critical point in the history of education had been reached. New ideas derived from Locke and Rousseau were at work and Wolf longed to enter the fray. He found able and enlightened allies in the ministers of Frederick the Great, and with their help and by his enthusiasm he was able to carry out his long-cherished plan to give a new basis to the science of philology. To Wolf this meant philology in the original sense - love of letters, of learning and of language. He defined it as "the knowledge of human nature as exhibited in antiquity"; its matter was everything that remained of ancient culture, to which an equal care and scholarship must be devoted. The "Prolegomena to Homer", the best exposition of Wolf's beliefs, were written in a great hurry to meet the needs of a lecture course, and they have all the merits of good lectures: command of method, the gift of inspiration, penetration and breadth of view. Wolf's thesis is no theory, but a collection of great ideas, which laid the foundations for the dominance of German scholarship in the nineteenth century. They have inspired and given purpose to education ever since." (Printing and the Mind of Man).With the 18th century came major developments in classical scholarship, the greatest of the classic epics being no exception - Homeric scholarship changed dramatically, and the end of the century saw the opening of the discussion which was to dominate the 19th and 20th centuries, namely that of the "Homeric question". The Homeric question is essentially the question of the identity of the poet(s) of the Homeric epics, and the nature of the relationship between "Homer" and the epics. In the 19th century it came to be the fulcrum between two opposed schools of thought, the Analysts and the Unitarians. The issue came about in the context of 18th-century Romantic interest in popular lays and folktale, and the growing recognition that the Homeric epics must have been transmitted orally before being written down, possibly much later than "Homer" himself. The key to determining who Homer was, lay in the answer to the question of when the poems were composed.The modern debate over exactly when they took on a fixed written form, began with the present work by Wolf. According to Wolf, the date of writing is among the first questions in the textual criticism of Homer. He considers the real mode of transmission of the poems and acknowledges that it was oral, arguing that they were composed in the mid-10th century BC. He further concludes that the Iliad and the Odyssey could not have been composed in the form in which we know them without the aid of writing and that they changed considerably over time in the hands of bards performing them orally and editors adapting written versions to contemporary tastes. The apparent artistic unity of the poems must have come about after their transcription.This new form of philological scholarship completely altered the way that philology has been done ever since the appearance of the present work

'Cook earned his place in history by opening up the Pacific to western civilization and by foundation of British Australia. The world was given for the first time an essentially complete knowledge of the Pacific Ocean and Australia, and Cook proved once and for all that there was no great southern continent, as had always been believed. He also suggested the existence of antarctic land in the southern ice ring, a fact which was not proved until the explorations up the 19th century. Cook was a brilliant navigator and hydrographer, an excellent administrator and planner, and probably the first sea captain to realize the importance of preserving the health and well-being of his crew' (P.M.M. p.135). - (Some volumes sl. waterstained).Tiele 268; Cat.

        LES AVENTURES DE TÉLÉMAQUE, fils d'Ulysse. [2 volumes].

      1795 - Paris, Antoine Augustin Renouard, 1795. Deux volumes grand in-quarto (237 X 311) veau fauve flammé, plats ornés d'un encadrement de grecque et large dentelle dorées, dos lisse, frise en place des nerfs, rosace dans les compartiments, chainettes et filets en queue, pièces de titre et de tomaison maroquin rouge et vert lierre, coiffes filetées, coupes ornées d'une chainette, chasses ornées d'un filet à grandes perles, tranches dorées (reliure de l'époque). Tome I: (4) ff. de faux-titre, titre illustré, titre et sommaire, 366 pages, 12 gravures ; Tome II: (4) ff. de faux-titre, titre illustré, titre et sommaire, 348 pages, 12 gravures. BELLE ÉDITION du libraire et bibliophile Antoine-Augustin RENOUARD. Elle fut imprimée par Pierre Causse à Dijon, sous la direction de Renouard. L'ouvrage, d'une très belle qualité typographique, a été tiré à 265 EXEMPLAIRES sur papier vélin, dont deux cent quarante furent immédiatement achetés par le baron de Lunas pour employer des assignats. Ces exemplaires ne réapparurent qu'en 1817, à la vente des livres du baron. D'après le catalogue de sa bibliothèque, Renouard possédait l'un des quatre exemplaires tirés sur vélin supérieur, auquel avait été ajoutée la suite des gravures de Tilliard, et était relié en vélin avec dos de maroquin vert. D'après une note ancienne au verso de la contregarde, notre exemplaire serait également l'UN DE CES QUATRE EXEMPLAIRES IMPRIMÉS SUR VÉLIN SUPÉRIEUR: il est en effet plus épais que le vélin du tirage courant, et est également enrichi de la suite de figures gravées. EXEMPLAIRE ENRICHI DE LA SUITE COMPOSÉE EN 1773 PAR JEAN-BAPTISTE TILLIARD. Elle est composée de deux titres illustrés: le premier contient le portrait de Fénelon en médaillon par Gaucher, le second est à la date de 1773 et porte l?adresse suivante: «A Paris, Chez l'auteur Quay des Grands Augustins, Maison de Mr. Debure » et de 24 FIGURES hors-texte gravées d'après les dessins de Charles Monnet par Tilliard. Ces figures, présentées dans un bel encadrement orné de feuillages, contiennent le texte des sommaires des chants. Treize des vingt-quatre estampes qui composent cette suite ont été tirées avant toutes lettres. «La suite de Tilliard, gravée dix ans auparavant, se vendait à part et on l'ajoutait facultativement à cette édition [celle de Didot en 1783]. Elle est fort rare avant la lettre. » (Cohen). UN ROMAN D'AVENTURES À L'USAGE D'ÉLÈVES ROYAUX : "Les Aventures de Télémaque" furent écrites par Fénelon (1651-1715) à l'intention des élèves royaux, et en particulier pour l'enseignement du duc de Bourgogne. Il s'agissait de faire connaître au futur souverain, petit-fils de Louis XIV, la culture antique qui imprégnait alors toute la civilisation moderne. Cependant ce roman contenait une critique implicite de l'absolutisme, et les plus hauts personnages de la Cour ont cru se reconnaître à travers certains portraits satiriques. L'ouvrage, rapidement interdit, provoqua la disgrâce de Fénelon à la Cour, mais connut également une célébrité immédiate. Diffusé clandestinement dans l'Europe entière, il fut l'un des livres les plus lus et les plus réédités, et il exerça une profonde influence sur la pensée philosophique des Lumières au XVIIIesiècle. Ainsi, Montesquieu le qualifia de «livre divin de ce siècle» et s'en inspira en adoptant le même procédé de distanciation dans ses "Lettres persanes". UN IMPRIMEUR BIBLIOPHILE : Antoine-Augustin RENOUARD (1765-1853) prit une part active aux débuts de la Révolution française. Électeur de 1791 et 1792, il fut membre du conseil général de la Commune de Paris et commissaire civil en 1793. C'est à cette période qu'il commença à publier des éditions d'ouvrages classiques qui se firent remarquer par leur élégance et leur correction. Arrêté puis libéré en 1794 et 1795, Renouard ne sera breveté libraire qu'en 1812. Collectionneur et bibliophile averti, il est également l'auteur de nombreuses et importantes bibliographies, qui font toujours référencetel que les "Annales de l'imp [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Externally, worn, with some loss and rubbing. 1 board detached, with 1 board held by the cords only and6 joints cracked. Internally, firmly bound. Pages are bright, and quite clean, though with some handling marks and some instances of foxing. Overall: FAIR..

        Elements of Geography: &#150; containing a concise and comprehensive view of that useful science, as divided into, 1. Astronomical 2. Physical or Natural 3. Political Geography, on a new Plan.

      I. Thomas and E.T. Andrews, Boston 1795 - Adapted to the capacities of Children and Youth; and designed, from its cheapness, for a Reading and Classical Book in Common Schools, and as a useful winter evening&#146;s entertainment for young people in private families. Illustrated with a neat map of the United States, and a beautiful chart of the whole World.Binding: Tan sheep with original spine label. Illustrations: 2 folding maps. Exceedingly scarce. We have never had another copy. None available on web. A 1796 edition is but in poor condition lacking the maps. An excellent clean copy with the two maps present. The U.S. map is restored but showing Tennessee Govern prior to statehood. West Florida reaches to the Mississippi. This little book was superseded by his Geography made Easy series, the first of which appeared in 1784 and continued by his son long after the author&#146;s death in 1826. Just why it was published is hard to discern but it can be considered the earliest American geography primer published to be considered as elementary. Very clean interior. Professionally rebound in period style preserving the original spine label and part of a period dust jacket made from an early penmanship exercise. Amer Antiquarian & Harvard have. Evans #29112.

Voß); 47 ungezählte Bl. Verlagsankündigungen. Dekorative Hldrbde der Zeit auf 4 Bünden mit blindgeprägtem Dekor, floraler Rückenvergoldung und jeweils 2 goldgeprägten Rückenschildern (Rücken leicht berieben und an einer Ecke gering ausgerissen, Deckel minimal fleckig, Vorsätze an den Ecken leimschattig und an den Ecken meist leicht ausgerissen, Titel von Heft 7 am Außenrand alt ausgebessert, gering braunfleckig).. Erste Ausgabe des vollständigen ersten Jahrgangs von Schillers letztem Zeitschriftenprojekt, das von den drei Horen Eunomia, Dike und Eirene, von Ordnung, Gerechtigkeit und Frieden, regiert werden sollte. "Die 'Horen' verwirklichten das vornehmste Programm der Klassik, die ästhetische Erziehung, in Reinkultur, sie versammelten unter Schillers Herausgeberschaft und Goethes Mitarbeit alles, was Stimme und Gewicht in der Geisteswelt hatte" (Mojem). Das waren für diesen ersten Jahrgang neben F. Schiller (Ueber die ästhetische Erziehung des Menschen. Von den nothwendigen Grenzen des Schönen. Ueber die Gefahr ästhetischer Sitten. Ueber das Naive. Die sentimentalischen Dichter.u.a.m.) und J. W. v. Goethe (Zwei Episteln. Unterhaltungen deutscher Ausgewanderten u. das Märchen. Litterarischer Sanscülottismus. Elegien u.a.) die Autoren J. W. Archenholtz, L. Ben David, K. Th. A. M. v. Dalberg (Kunstschulen), J. J. Engel (Entzückung des Las Casas. Herr Lorenz Stark), J. B. Erhard (Die Idee der Gerechtigkeit als Prinzip einer Gesetzgebung), J. G. Fichte (Ueber Belebung und Erhöhung des reinen Interesse für Wahrheit), K. H. Gros, J. G. Herder (Das eigene Schicksal. Homer, ein Günstling der Zeit. Homer und Ossian. Das Fest der Grazien u.a.), A.v. Humboldt (Die Lebenskraft oder der Rhodische Genius. Erzählung), W. v. Humboldt ( Ueber den Geschlechtsunterschied. Ueber die männliche und weibliche Form), F. H. Jacobi (Zufällige Ergießungen eines einsamen Denkers), Ch. G. Körner (Ueber Charakterdarstellung in der Musik), Sophie Mereau, J. H. Meyer (Ideen zu einer künftigen Geschichte der Kunst. Beyträge zur Geschichte der neuern bildenden Kunst), G. K. Pfeffel, J. F. Reichardt, A. W. Schlegel (Dante's Hölle. Briefe über Poesie, Silbenmaaß und Sprache), J. H. Voss, F. A. Weisshuhn, K. L. Woltmann u.a. "Die 'Horen' wurden durch Schillers mächtigen Impuls das imponierende Dokument klassischen Denkens in der Vereinigung der gegensätzlichen großen Geister der Zeit, die sich in der Idee eines harmonischen Menschentums ... verbunden wußten. Der erste Jahrgang der Zeitschrift kommt in der Mannigfaltigkeit der Themen, in der Form ihrer Gestaltung und in dem Wechsel des Philosophischen mit dem Poetischen Schillers Idee (eines der Wahrheit und Schönheit verpflichtetem 'Weltjournals') ... sehr nahe" (Raabe). Allerdings konnte nur der erste Jahrgang das erstrebte hohe Niveau halten, denn schon zu Beginn des zweiten Jahrgangs (auch nach den verletzenden Kritiken des ersten Jahrgangs) hatte Schiller "sich ... innerlich von seinem Werk losgesagt" (Raabe). Die Redaktion der 'Horen' überließ er den Verlegern J. G. Cotta .und J. Zahn, während ihn nach zehnjähriger Pause wieder eine dramatische Idee fesselte, der 'Wallenstein".- Druck auf feingeripptem Bütten. Die Auflage betrug anfangs 1000 Exemplare; sie mußte für die ersten beiden Hefte in Nachauflagen auf 2000 erhöht werden, Auch die folgenden Hefte 3 - 12 erzielten noch diese Auflagenhöhe, danach sank sie in den folgenden zwei Jahren wieder auf nicht mehr rentable 1000 Stück, sodaß die 'Horen' eingestellt werden mußten. Nach H. Plaschek (Neues zur Druckgeschichte der Horen) liegen Heft 1 und 2 im ersten Druck vor, sind also keine Exemplare der Nachauflagen (s. Hagen 600). - Trömel/Marcuse 148-151; Meyer (Schillers Horen) 25-38; Raabe (Einführung und Kommentar der 'Horen), 1-16; Fischer (Cotta) 141; Diesch 1242; Kirchner I,4604; Hocks/Schmidt 103 ff.; Kippenberg 500
