        De Orygynale Cronykil of Scotland, be Androw of Wyntown, Priowr of Sanct Serfis Ynche in Loch Levyn. Now first published, with notes, a glossary, etc. by David Macpherson.

      London: Printed by T. Bensley., 1795. - FIRST EDITION. 2 vols., 4to, half-titles, engr. plate of facs., Corrections leaf at the end of vol. 2, full cont. russia, geometric design to covers, gilt decor. borders, spines gilt in compartments, recased and rebacked with original spines laid down (some chipping at head and tail of spines,) edges rubbed, staining to lower fore-corner on contents outside text area, more faint and occasional in vol. 1, but more pronounced throughout all of vol. 2. With the original armorial bookplate of George Henry Arnold (motto 'UT VIVAS VIGILA) remounted in each volume. [This is the large paper issue, folded in quarto and noticed separately by ESTC T88186, locating 6 copies in the UK, 2 in North America, and 1 in Australia.] [Wyntoun's 'Cronykil' is usually assigned to the year 1424. It is written, like the 'Brus' in octosyllabic couplets. "As an historian, he may be disregarded in reference to the earlier portion of his work. When he comes to real Scottish history he may be credulous, but he cannot be neglected or thrust aside. He professes (doubtless with truth) to have consulted ms. authorities, which have now disappeared; and, more especially with regard to ecclesiastical history, the information with which he supplies us is full, and probably trustworthy. It was one of his weaknesses that he was too much of the cleric, and too little of the man of the world. He is the original source of the three weird sisters who tempt Macbeth " Millar, Literary History of Scotland, pp. 20/21, noting also that "Macpherson's preface is still the best introduction to the study of Wyntoun." Only 250 copies were printed. (Ref. Maidment Sale Catalogue, 1880, lot 3198.) "It is of great value, not only for the history of Scotland and her notable families but also, since it is written in the vernacular, and not in Latin, for the history of the language." ECSB 83. We have been unable to find out how many of the copies printed were in 4to format as above.] [Attributes: First Edition]

        Comité de salut public.

      Paris 1795 - trois pièces en un vol. in-8. toile Bradel verte gaufrée, dos lisse orné de filets dorés (rel. du XIXe s.). Petits frottis et accrocs. Important recueil, non par le nombre de pièces, mais par leur qualité : il réunit en effet, avec une réponse des mis en cause, les deux principales dénonciations post-thermidoriennes, qui sont, avec la rapport de Courtois, l'un des seuls fondements de la légende noire forgée après la chute du gouvernement révolutionnaire et qui, repris par nombre d'historiographes, a été véhiculée jusqu'à nos jours. Rappelons que Lecointre (1742-1805) était un dénonciateur professionnel depuis les débuts de la Révolution, et que le futur clichyen Saladin (1752-1812), qui sortit de prison juste après la mort de Robespierre, se montra d'une partialité totale dans son accusation passionnelle des Comités. I.

        Meine Duellgeschichte. Zur Berichtigung der Wahrheit und zum reifen Nachdenken über Duelle überhaupt denkenden Männern vorgelegt.

      Altona, Hammerich, 1795. 354 S., 1 Bl. Marmorierter Pbd. der Zeit mit goldgeprägtem Rückentitel auf grünem Rückenschild. Berühmte Duelldarstellung des deutsch-dänischen Politikers und Publizisten August Adolph von Hennings (1746 - 1826) und zugleich eine der ersten kritisch-grundsätzlichen Auseinandersetzungen mit dem Duellwesen überhaupt. Hennings, zunächst ein begeisterter Anhänger der Französischen Revolution, hatte 1792 die Schrift \"Vorurtheilsfreie Gedanken über Adelsgeist und Aristocratism\" veröffentlicht, in der er den Adel als überflüssige, parasitäre Klasse zwischen König und Volk kritisierte; daraufhin sah sich Hennings Schmähungen und Angriffen ausgesetzt und erhielt eine Duellforderung, die er ablehnte. Hennings nutzte diese Begebenheit, sich publizistisch in grundsätzlicher Weise mit dem Duellwesen auseinanderzusetzen. Seine Abhandlung geht ausgiebig auf den konkreten Fall ein, um sich dann in einem größeren gesellschaftlichen Kontext mit Geschichte und gegenwart des Duellwesens zu beschäftigen. Sehr gutes, sauberes Exemplar dieser überaus seltenen und originellen Darstellung; auch innen sehr guter Zustand; Seiten sauber und nahezu fleckenfrei Titelblatt mit altem Gutsstempel. Weitere Fotos auf der Homepage des Antiquariats (bitte Art.-Nr. auf der Angebotsseite in das Suchfeld eingeben).Dort Sommer-Rabatt von 20 Prozent auf dieses Angebot bis zum 17. September 2017.

        A summary of the duties of citizenship! Written expressly for the members of the London Corresponding Society; including observations on the contemptuous neglect of the Secretary of State, with regard to their late Address to the King.

      London: sold by R. Lee; D.I. Eaton; C. Riebau; J. Smith; and J. Burke. n.d 1795 - 8vo., 28pp., including the half-title, thin strip excised from upper margin of title, presumably removing a name, printed surface not affected, recent marbled boards lettered on spine. A good copy. First edition: uncommon. Goldsmiths 16478. Not in Stammhammer. This 'strident attack on the Army, Church, and political institutions was accompanied by a very Godwin-like insistence on the progress of reason and opinion and the utter repudiation of recourse to violence' [Mark Philp, Reforming ideas in Britain,> 2014, pp.229]. Edward Henry Iliff knew William Godwin and was not only an active and dedicated member of the London Corresponding Society but also the author of Angelo, a novel, founded on melancholy facts> (1796), and A tear of sympathy!!! Or striking objects of travel> (1796). He and his wife were jobbing actors in London. Iliff's pamphlet on The Duties of Citizenship> is a remarkably vigorous attack on the ruling classes and their crushing control of the inferior orders. 'The genus of society contains two species of odious monsters; Tyrants and Slaves; the former term comprehends 'every description of beings that diminish the liberty of others': the latter word includes, 'all the unfortunate wretches who suffer such a mutilation of right'. . The Tyrants of England may be subdivided into several classes; the most fatal to felicity and the progress of benevolence, are Governors of all descriptions, Priests, Soldiers, and Lawyers! The Slaves of England can only be portioned into two lots - slaves through ignorance, and willing slaves. . the slaves of ignorance are to be pitied, but the slaves of consent are to be despised .'.

        The History of America, in Two Books. Containing, I. A General History of America. II. A Concise History of the Late Revolution. Extracted from the American Edition of the Encyclopedia. The Second Edition.

      Philadelphia: Printed by Thomas Dobson, M.DCC.XCV [1795]. 8vo, viii, 356 pp. Contemporary full calf, gilt-lettered maroon morocco label. Binding well rubbed but sound, endpapers excised, lacking the two maps, signature P starting, occasional light foxing, some marginal childish scribblings in pencil; a fair copy only, but with an important association. Second Edition; the first edition had appeared in 1790, and other editions were issued in 1798, 1808, & 1819. Signed at the top of the title-page by Artemas Ward (1727-1808), soldier, jurist, & politician. Despite his many achievements in these three fields, Ward is best-known for having been commander-in-chief of the Massachusetts militia at the time of the Battle of the Bunker Hill and for serving (briefly) under George Washington as second-in-command of the Continental Army. Ward was in ill health and at his headquarters in Cambridge during the battle, but he took his share of the criticism of American tactical blunders. (Fortunately the British committed comparable blunders of their own). When the enterprising Scottish-born publisher Thomas Dobson (1751-1823) set out to produce an American edition of the Encyclopaedia Britannica, he commissioned Jedidiah Morse (1761-1826), already famous for his American geographies, to write articles and biographies of American interest. The two parts of this book were preprinted from the American Encyclopaedia, which did not commence publication until 1798. Morse's 141-page General History of America is remarkably thorough in its discussion of the cultures of the Indians of North & South America. Morse was greatly interested in the American aborigines and devoted his later career to the study and care of them. In his description of the Battle in the 214-page section on the American Revolution Morse does not mention General Ward, but he does include him (as 'Artemus' Ward) in his list of Washington's chief officers on p. 195. Ward resigned from the army in 1777 but continued in public service until 1795. He made no annotations in this book, but a dog-eared page in the section describing the battle and its aftermath suggests that he at least glanced through it. Unfortunately, the book then fell into the hands of juveniles, who ripped out the maps and scribbled in it. Sabin 50937. OCLC: 8464076. Relatively uncommon in institutions (c.18) and none at Harvard where Ward was an alum and briefly a teacher. No auction records.

        Prolegomena Ad Homerum Sive De Operum Homericorum Prisca Et Genuina Forma Variisque Mutationibus Et Probabili Ratione Emendand

      Halle, Libraria orphanotrophei. (Buchhandlung im Waisenhaus). 1795. - 1. Band (mehr nicht erschienen). 8°. 3 n.n. Bl.,CCLXXX S. Pappband der Zeit mit rotem goldgeprägtem Rückenschild. Erste Ausgabe. - Mit dem Vortitel "Homeri Opera Omnia" - Einer der wichtigsten Texte der Homer-Forschung überhaupt und das Fragment gebliebene Hauptwerk des deutschen Altphilologen. "From antiquity, translators, scholars, and even regular readers of the Homeric poems, have detected numerous errors, narrative contradictions, and repetitions. They have also identified passages describing institutions and artifacts belonging to very different time periods. By the end of the eighteenth century, German scholars attempted to address these textual oddities by proposing that the poems were not the creation of a single individual but were the result of editing together separate tales composed by different poets. Led by Friedrich August Wolf (1759-1824), these so-called "analysts" believed that it was possible to identify the original tales that would eventually end up being part of the two poems. As explained in his influential Prolegomena, Wolf argued that the Iliad and Odyssey were composed around 950 B.C.E. and transmitted orally for four-hundred years until they were written down and, consequently, given a sense of artistic unity."

        Essays on subjects connected with civilization.

      London: printed by E. Hodson. for C. Dilly 1795 - 8vo., (4) + ii + (2) + 293 + (1)pp., including the half-title, the first two leaves of text misbound (with a near-contemporary note to that effect), with the old ownership signature of 'Mary Hume 1800>' on title-page, contemporary mottled sheep, neatly rebacked and gilt preserving the old label. A very good copy. First edition. Although there are interesting chapters on education, government, religious establishments, manners and amusements, and on the arts, the author's most interesting chapter is that On the Female Character> (pp.257-285). It is one of the earliest critiques of Mary Wollstonecraft's Vindication of the Rights of Woman> (1792), published just three years earlier. Malkin supports some of Wollstonecraft's ideas but is unconvinced by others. 'There is no subject, which has been more uniformly and even wilfully misunderstood, than the appropriate character of the female sex', claims Malkin. 'Mrs Wollstonecraft has been successful in setting those prejudices in a strong point of view, which have prevailed to the exclusion of half our species from the common rights of humanity, and the unfettered exercise of reason'. (p.257). And Malkin considers Wollstonecraft's statements on 'sexual virtues' including 'modesty', the 'philosophy of lasciviousness', and education - Mary W.'s view was that boys and girls should be educated together, but himself is notably unenthusiastic about co-education. It was, he writes, 'a proposition that must be admitted with some hesitation. . But though I should be cautious in adopting the ideas of Mrs Wollstonecraft in this particular, I clearly see the propriety of frequent intercourse between young persons of different sexes .'. 'On the whole,' Malkin concedes, 'the author of The Vindication> has rectified many erroneous principles on the subject of female manners and character, has displayed a meritorious zeal for justice and for liberty, and has produced a work, which properly qualified may be productive of beneficial effects'. Benjamin Heath Malkin (1769-1842), was a scholar notable for his connection with William Blake. He seems to have been close to radical circles in the 1790s, William Godwin reporting meeting Malkin at dinner at Horne Tooke's in 1796 and 1797. Malkin much later (1829) became the first professor of history at the new London University. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Miscellanea Physica-Medica. Edit Joannes Andreas Scherer.

      Viennae, Typis & Impensis A.A. Patzowsky, 1795, 8, 209, (1) pp., alter Leinenband zarter Stempel auf Titel, ansonsten frisches Exemplar. Rare - First Edition - 'Miscellanea Physico-Medica,' edited by Scherer, is a series of his open letters to foreign savants, chiefly on questions of pneumaticsJohn Ingenhousz, "M.D. (1730-1799), physician and physicist, was born at Breda in 1730, and educated for the medical profession. He practised for six years in the Netherlands, and came to England in 1764 or 1765. After spending more than three years in or near London, during which time he followed the new practice of inoculating small-pox in its mitigated form, which had been introduced by Dr. W. Watson at the Foundling Hospital and by Dr. Dimsdale in Hertfordshire, he was selected by Sir John Pringle in 1768 to proceed to Vienna to inoculate several members of the imperial family of Austria, Dimsdale having himself been sent for in July of that year to inoculate the Empress Catharine at St. Petersburg. Ingenhousz received early in 1769 'a pension for life from the emperor of nearly 600l., and was made body physician to Joseph II and Maria Theresa, and aulic councillor. He remained some years in Vienna, and set up a laboratory for physical experiments, which the emperor is said to have frequented. In his endeavours to introduce inoculation into Austria he was opposed by De Haën, then at the head of the medical school of Vienna (HÄSER). In 1775 he began to send researches to the Royal Society, the first of the series having been made at Leghorn in 1773 upon the torpedo-fish, a favourite subject of study in those days. He contributed nine papers in all to the 'Philosophical Transactions,' the last appearing in 1782 five treated of electricity and magnetism, and four of the atmospheric gases. In 1779 he came back to London, and was elected F.R.S. He appears to have spent most of his remaining years in England, a prominent figure in scientific circles, always willing to show his experiments to his friends, especially considerate, it is said, to young people, and noted for his simple and kindly disposition. When on a visit to the Marquis of Lansdowne at Bowood, in the autumn of 1798, shortly after Jenner's essay on cow-pox came out, he made inquiries as to the Wiltshire milkers' experiences of the alleged protective against small-pox, and formed an opinion adverse to Jenner's contention, but confined his opposition to a private letter, and declined further controversy. He was taken ill during a visit to Bowood in the autumn following, and died there on 7 Sept. 1799. Besides his papers sent to the Royal Society, his chief work was 'Experiments on Vegetables, discovering their great Power of purifying the common Air in Sunshine, but injuring it in the Shade or at Night,' London, 1779 (French translation by the author, with additions, 2 vols., Paris, 1787-9). This contained the discovery, also ascribed to Saussure, of plants in the sunshine giving off oxygen, and in the shade carbonic acid. A collection of his papers was published at Paris, 'Nouvelles experiences et observations sur divers objets de physique,' 2 vols., 1785-9. A collection in German was published by Molitor at Vienna in 1782. His work on the 'Respiration of Plants' also appeared at Vienna in 1786. A work in Latin, Vienna, 1795, called 'Miscellanea Physico-Medica,' edited by Scherer, is a series of his open letters to foreign savants, chiefly on questions of pneumatics. In 1796 he sent to the board of agriculture an essay on 'The Food of Plants and the Renovation of Soils.' An engraved portrait is prefixed to the 'Experiments on Vegetables.'." DNB

Pearson, 1796, 8, (2), 47, (1) pp., 2 Tafeln, feiner Halblederband mit Rvg. und Rückenschild feines Exemplar. Rare - The 'Second Edition', is the first separate edition, first published as second part in Beddoes, Thomas & Watt, James: 'Considerations on the Factitious Airs ...' in 1794, and the 'Supplement to the Description of a Pneumatic Apparatus' in first edition.Contents: Description of an Pneumatic Apparatus General Directions for the use of the Apparatus 3.: General Cautions Directions for Procouring the Airs Miscellaneous Observartions.Supplement Contents: Description of a Simplified Pneumatic Apparatus Description of a Portable Apparatus Postscript Observations upon the Hydro-carbonate & Oxygene Air Ad by Boulton & Watt, of Soho, near Birmingham Addition to the Supplement, &c. Directions for Using the Apparatus. br The discovery of oxygen by Joseph Priestley in the late eighteenth century caused many physicians to attribute many diseases either to a lack or excess of oxygen, or to some modifications of this theory. Of this group, one of the most notable was Dr. Thomas Beddoes (1760-1808), of Shropshire, who founded the Pneumatic Institute at Clifton in 1798 for the treatment of disease by inhalation. Watt was employed to design and construct the apparatus and in 1790 Watt invented the gasometer. The essays by Beddoes and Watt On Factitious Airs (1794-1796) advance the important therapeutic concept of treating certain diseases by placing the patient in a factitious atmosphere, and their general plan of treating respiratory troubles by inhalations of different gasses was revived by Louis Waldenburg in his apparatus for differential pneumotherapy in 1873. Watt had an interest in the development of pneumatic medicine. On 7th December 1794, he wrote to his friend, Sir Joseph Banks, President of the Royal Society Mankind has been long enough occasionally poisoned by the channel of the lungs, let us try if we cannot receive medicines by the same way. cf. Watt's papers, Birmingham City Library."The most important contribution to the study of therapeutic inhalation was made by Thomas Beddoes. ... The designs of the apparatus were prepared in the summer of 1794, and Watt wrote to Beddoes 'I send you with this , drawings of my apparatus for producing and receiving the various airs which may be supposed to be useful in Medicine."

Data la struttura dell'opera queste vedute sono molto rare e quasisempre mancanti alle collezioni ed ai repertori specializzati. Questa veduta proviene da un albumcostituito attorno al 1840 da un collezionista tedesco. La veduta raffigura la città dal mare con titolo entro conchiglia in alto, 24 rimandi in basso ed al centro un medaglione raffigurante Dietrich IV. La stampa è ben conservata ma come le altre di questo album, rifilata alla battuta delrame.

Hellevoetsluis (de familie Hutchinson, agent van de paketboot Harwich-Hellevoetsluis v.v.), Brielle, Delft, Den Haag (kermis), Scheveningen, Rotterdam, Leiden (ontmoeting met de medicus Pinckard), Haarlem, Amsterdam, Zaandam, Alkmaar, Hoorn, Enkhuizen, Edam, Monnickendam, Broek, Medemblik, Purmerend, Nijmegen, Arnhem. Het werk is gelardeerd met gedichten van de auteur, voorts vrij veel aandacht voor literatuur en toneel in Nederland en een relaas over generaal Van Boetselaer in Willemstad. Aan het slot van het boek een vroeg voorbeeld van “Nederlands en Duits op reis”: met zinnen als “Is er water en een handdoek in mijn kamer?”, “Borstelt mijn hoed af”, “Mijn bedlaakens moeten door en door droog sijn” en: “Mijn paard moet beslagen worden”, in drie talen."
