Antonio Principe da Beira.

      Lisbon, Na Officina de Antonio Rodrigues Galhardo, 1795. - Woodcut Portuguese royal arms on title page. (1 blank l., 88 ll.), variously paginated and signed: (1 blank l., 2 ll.), 25, 14, 11 pp., (55 ll.), 11 pp. 4°, contemporary decorated wrappers (tears and small pieces missing from wrappers; spine mostly gone), all text block edges gilt. Minor marginal soiling to a few leaves, otherwise crisp and clean, internally fine. Overall in very good condition. Faint former owner's semi-circular purple stamp (early twentieth century? from Braga) on recto of first (blank) leaf. ---- FIRST and ONLY EDITION of this collection of poems celebrating the birth of D. António, first son of the heir to the Portuguese throne, D. João (later Prince Regent, and still later King João VI), and his wife the Princess Carlota Joaquina (later Queen of Portugal). Unfortunately, D. António died aged six, in 1801. The poems contained in this volume are by members of the Academia de Bellas Letras de Lisboa, also known as the "Segunda Arcadia". Many were never published elsewhere, and some may be the only known examples of works by these authors, who were: Domingos Maximiano Torres, Manuel Bernardo de Sousa e Mello, Joaquim Franco de Araujo Freire Barbosa, João Silverio de Lima, Belchior Manuel Curvo Semmedo Torres de Sequeira, Joaquim Severino Ferraz de Campos, José Agostinho de Macedo, Francisco Joaquim Bingre, Luís Corrêa de França e Amaral, Angelo Talassi, João Antonio [Jean Antoine?] Monneau, Antonio Felkel, and Fr. Francisco do Coração de Jesus Cloots Vanzeller.Included are a pastoral drama, "O Alvoroço", signed B.D.M.T. [i.e. Domingos Maximiano Torres], an ode by Manuel Bernardo de Sousa e Mello, a drama in Italian, "Il Tempo Vinto" by Joaquim Franco de Araujo Freire Barbosa, "Sextinas, finalizando com versos de Camões" a canzoneta in Spanish, "Rio Manzanares, da las en-hora-buenas al Tajo", a hymn "A Deos optimo maximo and a sonnet in Italian, all by the same author. There follows a neo?Latin epigram and two neo?Latin laudatory poems by João Silverio de Lima, as well as an ode, sextinhas, and two sonnets, all in Portuguese, by the same author. There is then an "Ode pindarica" by Joaquim Severino Ferraz de Campos, and an "Idilio", a relatively early example of verse by José Agustinho de Macedo, by far the best known author represented. Francisco Joaquim Bingre contributed an "Epistola", while Luís Corrêa de França e Amaral wrote a "Genethliaco". There are two sonnets, a "Canzonetta" and a "Cantata", all in Italian, by Angelo Talassi. João António or Jean Anoine Monneau, who was called Jonio or Jone Sorbonence in the Academy, contributed an ode in Portuguese as well as verses in French. Antonio Felkel contributed neo?Latin verse, while some unsigned verses in German which follow appear to be by the same author, although they could be by the author of the concluding "Oração Panegyrica", Fr. Francisco do Coração de Jesus Cloots Vanzeller.---- Innocêncio II, 85: calling for a total of 176 pp. On the Academia de Belas Letras, the Segunda Arcadia, and Arcadismo in general, see António Ferreira de Brito in Machado, ed., @Dicionário de literatura portuguesa, pp. 511?3.

        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.

        A Description of the Jail Distemper .... - BOUND WITH - An Account of the Experiment ... on Board the Union Hospital Ship

      London, 1795 / 1796. First Editions. Modern linen. A very good copy; first title with an inst. perf. stamp; repair of small section of fold ( no loss). 8vo., The second title has a fldg. plate. A little known but important series of experiments and observations recorded in this pairing. Smyth has received posthumous credit for being the first to successfully overcome infectious contagion among populations of individuals whether they be in prison or the military. In this instance it was the ' jail distemper ' ( typhus ) . The ailment is particularly troublesome to recognize since it has no demonstrative symptoms except perhaps a rash; it therefore remained ill defined until well into the nineteenth century. Smyth was able to come up with a practical solution to halt its spread among populations and for this reason was granted a handsome bounty by the English parliament in 1802. An important pair of publications in the history of infectious disease. DNB XVII, 592 - 593.

The relation begins by informing the dispatching of Father Yrusta to Eneno and of being detained at Quimiri for four days, awaiting the response of the Inca ("estuvimos cuatro dias detenidos en dho pueblo esperando la respuesta del Ynga, al cavo de ellos, llegaron de Eneno los Curacas de Nijandares, y la Sal, acompañados de seis soldados, armados todos de sus arcos, y flechas"), after which soldiers armed with arrows and bows arrived and mentioned their father expected them. The relation continues in full detail, with the audiences with the tribal leaders, welcoming?s, farewells, and other details with the outstanding details observed during their journey overland.Miguel de Eysaguirre was son of Domingo de Eysaguirre and Maria Rosa de Arechavala y Alday y Azpee, thus a member of a prominent Chilean family; it seems that he was at some point Fiscal of the Real Audiencia de Lima.

        Vermont from actual Survey

      Philadelphia: M. Carey, 1795. Map. Engraving with original hand coloring. Image measures 10.5 x 8.5". Sheet measures 16.5 x 10.75". This map depicts the new state of Vermont shortly after its admission to the Union in 1791. The boundaries of Lake Champlain and the Connecticut River set the state off from the surrounding land, which is left undefined as to isolate and highlight its detail. Original and coloring pleasantly defines district and county lines, showing the extent of the state's settlement. Dartmouth College, founded in 1769, is also labeled. In the bottom left of the map, a charming title cartouche features local landscape features such as pine trees and waterfalls. The map was published in Carey's "Atlas" as part of Guthrie's "Geography Improved." Has toning, foxing, and some folds, but they do not detract from the map's overall pleasing quality. Amos Doolittle (1754-1832) was an American engraver and silversmith based in Connecticut. His engravings after the Battles of Lexington and Concord earned him such renown that many referred to him as "The Revere of Connecticut," calling on his services as both an artist and teacher. He established a shop in New Haven where he sold portraits, maps, and bookplates. Raised in a family of publishers and book sellers, Mathew Carey (1760--1839) became one of the most important figures of early American cartography. Carey was based in Philadelphia, where he owned a publishing firm and oversaw a cottage system of independent artists and craftsmen. His important "Atlas" was the first American-published atlas of the United States. Furthermore, the maps his firm produced represent some of the best quality and most informative depictions of the United States in the early period after it gained independence. This map is a wonderful example of Doolittle and Carey's fine work.

      Ã¬Can Man Become Perfect?îCONDORCET, [Marie Jean Antoine Nicolas Caritat, Marquis de]. Esquisse díun tableau historique des progrÃ?s de líesprit humain. Ouvrage posthume de Condorcet. Paris: Chez Agasse, Lían III. de la RÃ?publique [1795].First edition of Condorcetís philosophical masterpiece. Octavo (7 7/8 x 4 13/16 inches; 201 x 123 mm). viii, 389, [1, blank] pp.Contemporary quarter calf over dark blue paste-paper boards, spine gilt with dotted bands and ornaments, gilt red morocco lettering piece. Old owner\'s signature on half-title. A quarter-inch marginal tear at the bottom of leaf M42 that does not affect the text. Light foxing throughout. A blue ink stain on top edge from signature Z to the end. Overall, a clean and attractive copy.ìIt was the gospel of the nineteenth century that mankind is destined for indefinite future progress. Condorcet [1743-1794], looking back and then forward, saw proof of this in the growing equality between classes and nations, the intellectual, physical and moral improvement of man; and he prophesied that popular education on correct principles would strengthen and assure this progress...In the Esquisse [ëAn Historical Outline of the Progress of the Human Mindí], published after his death, 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 Condorcetís 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...it is as the most fully developed exposition of the progress of man that Condorcetís work is now remembered, and it is this which has given its lasting appealî (Printing and the Mind of Man).Printing and the Mind of Man 246.HBS 65358.$2,000

        Presidential Document Signed, on parchment, folio, Washington, July 24, 1815

      . This visually appealing document is a ship's passport with dual engraved maritime vignettes below the scalloped top margin and Presidential seal affixed at lower left corner. .President Madison and James Monroe as Secretary of State have signed this maritime document acknowledging that the ship Lucas of Salem, Nathaniel Sage, commander, belongs to the United States. Also signed by the Collector of the Port of Salem, Will R. Lee. Fading to manuscript portions, but President Madison' signature is strong, Monroe's signature is somewhat lighter. Ships' passports were used for US vessels sailing in the Mediterranean. The passports resulted from an agreement in 1795 to allow the passage of ships in return for payments to the Barbary pirates who required countries to pay tribute in exchange for not capturing that country's ships and crews. America was one of the countries who agreed to pay for safe passage. These passports identified ships which had safe passage. The scalloped edge of the passport shows that the top portion had been cut and sent ahead to be matched when, in this case the Schooner Weymouth, arrived. An historic document with great visual appeal.

        Memoria sobre las observaciones de latitud y longitud en el mar. [Madrid], widow of Joaquin Ibarra, 1796. Narrow 4to (20.5 x 14 cm). With a woodcut crowned cypher monogram (of a Spanish Duke?) on the title-page and 7 folding leaves containing 13 numbered letterpress tables. Early 19th-century gold-tooled tree calf, Stormont marbled endpapers.

      Bibl. Mar. Española 265; Palau 5752 (noting only 6 folding leaves); Houzeau & Lancaster 10540 (1795 ed.); for Galiano: Howgego, to 1800, G6. Greatly expanded second edition of a treatise on the determination of latitude and longitude at sea, by Dionisio Alcalá Galiano (1760-1805), Spanish explorer, cartographer and captain in the Royal Spanish armada. His much shorter account (26 leaves instead of 45 and without the folding tables) was also printed by the widow Ibarra, in 1795. Galiano was a pioneer of the use of the chronometer in Spain, allowing him to produce far more accurate maps of the Spanish colonies in the Americas. Galiano enrolled in the Spanish naval school in 1775. After graduating in 1779 he participated in hydrographic surveys of the Spanish and South American coasts and other Spanish naval scientific explorations.Joaquin Ibarra (1725-1785) had been printer to the court of King Carlos III and Spain's greatest printer, vying with Bodoni and the Didots as a fine printer. His widow continued the tradition and upheld the quality of presswork and materials. The present book is well printed on fine Catalan laid paper by Joseph Llorens, who had supplied paper for Ibarra's famous 1780 Cervantes.A library stamp has been cut out of the title-page and the hole expertly restored, not affecting text or monogram. Otherwise in fine condition, with the paper still crisp. The binding is worn at the hinges but still good.

        Table des Logarithmes des Sinus et Tangentes , De seconde en seconde Pour les cinq premiers degrés, de dix en dix secondes pour tous les degres du quart de cercle

      n.p., circa 1795 - Mid grey marbled cover with brown leather spine. Title embossed in gold on red leather insert on spine. Given to Hindmarsh on board HMS Victory. From the library of John Hindmarsh, later the first Governor of South Australia, given to him in 1803 while with Nelson on HMS Victory. The inscription reads: "Thos. Atkinson Master of His Majesty's Ship Theseus August the 12th 1798" and in a second hand has been added "given to J Hindmarsh on the HMS Victory 1803." Not only is the book an attractive relic of Hindmarsh, it also unites two veterans of the Battle of the Nile, the stunning British Naval victory which turned the tide of the war in the Mediterranean in 1798, a battle in which both Hindmarsh and Atkinson served with great distinction. Hindmarsh joined the Royal Navy in 1793 as a fourteen year old, sailing to the West Indies, seeing service on the "Glorious First of June" (1794), Cadiz and the Battle of the Nile. Nelson was much taken with the young officer, and personally gave him his lieutenant's commission on board HMS Victory in 1803, clearly around the time that the gallant young officer was given this book by Thomas Atkinson. Atkinson had first served with Nelson on the Theseus in 1797, but as the inscription implies, was still on board in August 1798 (after Nelson had relinquished command of the vessel), but later rejoined Nelson, who described him as 'one of the best Masters I have seen in the Royal Navy.' Given that in 1798 this was a newly published French book, and that it was acquired while the Theseus was on active service (Atkinson specifically says 12 August 1798), it is certain that it represents booty taken from a captured French man-of-war, possibly the frigate Artemise or either of the Heureux or Mercure, three ships which the Theseus is known to have forced to surrender. The volume would have been of immeasurable service to any young naval officer with an interest in navigation, as it prints the mathematical tables of the Frenchman François Callet, printing the calculation of logarithms to seven-places.
