        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

        Description of a Pneumatic Apparatus, with Directions for Procuring the Factitious Airs. + Supplement ... , for Preapared Airs containing a Description of a Simplified Apparatus, and of a Portable Apparatus.

      Birmingham, Printed by Thomas Pearson, 1795, 8, VIII, 49, (1) pp., 3 gefalt. Tafeln Birmingham, Th. 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." Barbara M. Duncum, The Development of Inhalation Anaesthesia (1847), pp.64-70 ( 2 pages description of Watt's apparatus).

      dai torchj Palazzini Carli, 1795. In-4° (cm. 23,5), legatura leggermente successiva in m. pelle con titolo e filetti in oro al dorso; pp. [8] XXIV 320 [2] con 1 tavola in antiporta f.t. incisa da Vascellini e 16 tavole di ritratti f.t. incise da Mochetti; sporadiche fioriture. Prima edizione e curiosa fonte di storia dell'arte che recupera Le vite di Carlo Roberto Dati e vi aggiunge note e apparato iconografico. L'opera è brutalmente schifata dal Cicognara 2385 perché «nulla aggiunse» e invece criticata dal Gamba 426 perché «ingombrata di note». Cfr. Brunet II, 530 che la cita senza giudizi dopo aver definito «pregiata» l'altra opera del frate minore Della Valle, titolata Lettere danesi sopra le belle arti; Lozzi 5113n.. Buon esemplare.

      1795. Incisione in rame, colorata, 195x310 Quest'opera fu stampata in dispense dal 1784-85 al 1794 illustrata con stampe a caratterestorico e sacro; dal 1794 fino al 1804 vennero introdotte anche le vedute, che rappresentarono poil'unica illustrazione della rivista. 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.

        A VOYAGE TO BOTANY BAY, (BOUND WITH SEQUEL) with a description of the Country, Manners, Customs, Religion &c. of the Natives by the Celebrated George Barrington. To which is added his Life and Trial.

      London, printed by C. Lowndes for H. D. Sold by Symonds, No. 20 Paternoster Row, no date, circa 1795.. A very early edition, 1793, issued as a pamphlet, foreword dated "Parramatta November 1793". Small 8vo, bound in sixes, approximately 175 x 100 mm, 7 x 4 inches, engraved frontispiece titled 'An interesting discovery in the Woods', vignette on engraved title page (a view of prisoners landing at Sydney Cove), pages: title page, [2], [3]-120, bound in full modern mottled calf, gilt patterned border to covers, gilt raised bands to spine, richly gilt in compartments, gilt lettered red morocco title label, new endpapers.Two 19th century and one 20th century signatures on reverse of frontispiece, no show-through, light offsetting from frontispiece onto title page, fore-edge margin of frontispiece, title page and some pages within slightly trimmed, occasional small very pale marks or pale stains. A very good copy. George Barrington (1755-1804) was a notorious criminal known as 'The Prince of Pickpockets'. He served several sentences on board the prison hulks at Woolwich before being transported to Australia, where he later became Superintendent of Convicts and High Constable in New South Wales. It is unlikely that he had any part in the authorship of this pamphlet but the publishers used his name to lend authenticity and interest to the accounts of Australia that they were putting out including considerable detail on eighteenth-century New South Wales not available elsewhere. BOUND WITH: A SEQUEL TO BARRINGTON'S VOYAGE TO NEW SOUTH WALES, 1801 Comprising an interesting narrative of the transactions and behaviour of the convicts; the progress of the colony; an official register of the crimes, trials, sentences, and executions that have taken place: a topographical, physical, and moral account of the country, manners, customs &c. of the natives,- as likewise authentic anecdotes of the most distinguished characters, and notorious convicts that have been transported to the settlement at New South Wales. Same imprint with title page dated 1801, bound in sixes, pages: viii, [5]-88, [6], collated and guaranteed complete, the final 6 pages contain 'An official register of the crimes .. of the convicts in New South-Wales'. Occasional pale foxing otherwise very good. See Ferguson, Bibliography of Australia, Volume I, page 81, No.206 and page 125, No.328.

      traces de son passage trouveés en diverses isles et terres de l'Océan pacifique : grande isle peuplée d'émigrés français.A Paris : Chez Everat, imprimeur-libraire, [between 1795 and 1798]. Octavo, contemporary quarter calf over papered boards (rubbed, corners worn), spine with gilt decoration and stamped lettering 'Voyages au sud', front hinge weakened, pp 397, ii (errata), contents clean and crisp, a very good copy.Ferguson, 225; Forbes, 285; Sabin, 38958; variant issue with the word 'isle' on the title page spelt with a lower-case 'i'. An apocryphal work, one of numerous contemporary fictitious accounts inspired by the story of the disappearance of La Pérouse's expedition after leaving Botany Bay. The author, purportedly a Frenchman who has sailed with a Portuguese expedition to the South Seas, signs himself on the final page merely as 'C'. The narrative includes a description of a utopian society on an island near New Holland, inhabited by French citizens who have fled the Terror. The writer also encounters a survivor from one ofLa Pérouse's ships who relates the fate of the expedition - and of La Pérouse himself - in Hawaii. Rare. Copies are recorded in four Australian collections (National Library of Australia; State Library of New South Wales; University of Melbourne Library; State Library of Victoria).

        The Cabinet. By a Society of Gentlemen.

      Norwich: printed and sold by J. March. Sold also by J.S. Jordan Fleet-Street London 1795 - 3 vols., 8vo., (2) + vi + 310 + (2) and (2) + 318 + (2) and (2) + 318 + (2)pp., closed tear in one leaf of vol.III (but no loss), contemporary uniform calf with pretty red morocco gilt spine labels, a little wear to bindings, split in upper joint of vol.III, even so the bindings all sound. First and only edition and all published of this provincial periodical. With the first issue in vol.I dated 11th October 1794, the Cabinet> was a collection of primarily political, radical and economic 'Letters' with an evident bias towards Republicanism. (Each title-page is embellished with a device incorporating the Cap of Liberty). The authors of these essays inevitably included Amelia Opie (née Alderson) and her circle both in Norwich and in London. 'Amelia Alderson contributed fifteen poems to the first three issues. Increasing revolutionary violence and warfare polarized public opinion, however, and a large show trial of leading ‘English Jacobins’, including the Aldersons' acquaintances Thomas Holcroft and John Horne Tooke, was scheduled for November 1794. A month earlier Amelia Alderson had told Susannah Taylor that she was pessimistic at the outcome, that The Cabinet> was considered a ‘dangerous’ publication, and that the Aldersons and their friends would emigrate to the United States should the trial have a ‘fatal’ result. Horne Tooke was acquitted, and the government abandoned the other prosecutions; Amelia Opie later denied indignantly William Beloe's story that in her joy she had climbed over benches to kiss Horne Tooke.' [Gary Kelly in ODNB]. The essays in these volumes cover pretty well all the issues of the day: e.g. government, emigration, public finance, the 'rights of woman', population, war, education, popular societies, negroes, Habeas Corpus, the 'public mind', despotism, public charities, &c. &c.

Contemporary calf. Front fly chipped, corners a bit bumped, ink spots, antiquarian bookseller's label of William Salloch on rear pastedown, old bookseller's description tipped to front pastedown, sound and very good. With the ownership name of "E[benezer]. Foote" on front pastedown, and the later ownership names of two of his children, Charles and Harriet Foote (Harriet's name is inked over, causing some of the ink splash). The bookseller's description indicates that the owner was Connecticut soldier Captain Ebenezer Foote, who served with the Minute Men at Bunker Hill, was captured at the surrender of Ft. Washington, escaped and made his way to join Washington at Valley Forge and the Battle of Trenton. However, his health broke down and he was placed in the Commissary Department, where he was perhaps most notable for allowing Colonel John Andre to escape, albeit briefly, by honoring the pass that had been given to Andre by Benedict Arnold. .

There are a few blank leaves in the sequence and several un-numbered leaves at the rear of the book. The neat hand, which is free of corrections, numbered blank leaves and other blank leaves suggest this manuscript was an incomplete fair copy of a reference work. The laid-in notes are a biography of Smith by Smith-Stanier [1823-1911], a relative of Smith and notable English folklorist. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Copper token for Thomas Hall, taxidermist, London, 1795

      London : Thomas Hall, 1795. Æ halfpenny, diameter 30 mm, weight 12 grams. Obverse: Three quadrupeds. THE KANGUROO . THE ARMADILLO . THE RHINOCEROS. Reverse: T. HALL CITY ROAD NEAR FINSBURY SQUARE LONDON 1795 / THE FIRST ARTIST IN EUROPE FOR PRESERVING BIRDS BEASTS &c. Dark brown patina with reddish highlights and excellent detail; a superb example. During the 1790s the London taxidermist Thomas Hall produced a number of copper tokens to advertise his Finsbury Museum. At this time, privately produced copper tokens were a popular form of business promotion. These tokens went into general circulation and had a value equivalent to a halfpenny. They could also be redeemed at the issuing establishment for minted crown coinage. Hall was one of numerous taxidermists and menagerists in Georgian London who made a living by charging the public to visit their displays of exotic beasts and curiosities. The first public display of a preserved kangaroo in London was in 1789, in a concert hall near Haymarket. In 1795, when Hall issued this now extremely rare token, the display of this strange animal of New South Wales was still very much a novelty that attracted enormous public interest.

        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 Royal Captives: A Fragment of a Secret History Copied from an Old Manuscript

      London: Printed for G. G. and J. Robinson, 1795, 1795. First edition. NCBEL II, 698; Garside, Raven & Schöwerling 1795:50; Summers, Gothic Bibliography, page 489. Very good copy.. 2 vols, 12mo, modern brown buckram, maroon morocco labels, gilt lettering, untrimmed. Half-titles present. The only novel by Ann Yearsley (1753-1806), the interesting working class poet known as the "Bristol Milkmaid." The Royal Captives, based on the popular French tale of the man in the iron mask, uses the guise of a gothic thriller to examine favorite subjects of Yearsley's: class distinctions, political dissent, the misstreatment of women and the poor. Yearsley notes in her witty preface that she intentionally left the novel unfinished and implies that if the public demands it of her she will complete the tale. "Finis" is found at the end of volume two, but the novel was very popular and some months later Yearsley wrote and published two further volumes, not present here and much rarer the first two.

        Elementos De Orictognosia, ó Del Conocimiento De Los Fósiles, Dispuestos, Según Los Principios De A. G. Wérner, Para El Uso Del Real Seminario De Minería De México. Primera Parte, Las Tierras, Piedras y Sales. Segunda Parte, Combustibles, Metales y (*).

      Mariano Joseph De Zúñiga y Ontiveros, México, 1795 - 1805 - (*) Metales y Rocas, seguidos de la Introducción a la Pasagrafía geológica del Señor Barón de Humboldt, inédita hasta ahora con tres láminas. =Obra maestra del naturalista Andrés Manuel del Río, considerada la primera obra escrita sobre mineralogía de América. La obra fue publicada en por lo menos dos ediciones, una en 1795, en la Ciudad de México y la otra en 1832, en Filadelfia. = Portada - VI pp. - 11 tablas a doble hoja - XL pp. - 171 pp. y reverso. = y = Portada - XII pp. - 200 pp. - 1 hojas - y 3 grandes láminas plegadas. Muy conservado ejemplar encuadernado de época en piel. Lomeras con un tejuelo y florones al oro. Cortes pintados. ===El autor de esta obra, Andrés Manuel del Río, fue nombrado en 1793 profesor del Real Seminario de Minería, una institución que se acababa de fundar en la Ciudad de México tan sólo un año antes, en 1792. Este colegio fue el primero en toda América en ofrecer una enseñanza especializada en disciplinas técnicas y científicas. Los estudios estaban organizados en cuatro años, al término de los cuales los alumnos debían hacer dos años de prácticas, en cualquiera de los múltiples distritos mineros del imperio español. Pues bien, una vez instalado en Ciudad de México, Andrés Manuel del Río organizó en el Real Seminario de Minería un curso de mineralogía, considerado como el primero que se impartía en suelo americano sobre esta materia, y la presente obra debía servir como complemento y apoyo a sus clases. Tal y como se indica en el título, el contenido de este libro de texto se basaba en las tesis de Abraham Gottlob Werner, un científico alemán con el que Del Río había tenido oportunidad de estudiar antes de asentarse en América. Sin embargo, nuestro autor no se limita a repetir las ideas de su maestro, sino que introduce algunas observaciones críticas de gran interés, por lo que podemos considerar a este libro como la primera exposición crítica de las teorías de Werner escrita en español. Del Río también se inspira en las teorías químicas de otro de sus maestros, Antoine-Laurent Lavoisier, y por supuesto utiliza sus propios descubrimientos y estudios. En palabras de uno de los grandes colaboradores y amigos de Del Río, el naturalista alemán Alexander von Humboldt, los Elementos de Orictognosia son la mejor obra sobre orictognosia (esto es, sobre mineralogía) jamás escrita en la lengua de Cervantes. Más aún, constituyen el primer libro de texto de mineralogía que se escribió en América, así como un importante esfuerzo a la hora de importar métodos científicos y tecnológicos a la industria minera mexicana, y un buen ejemplo de cómo los nuevos descubrimientos europeos estaban introduciéndose en el Nuevo Mundo. La obra se publicó en dos volúmenes, con bastante tiempo de diferencia entre uno y otro: el primero de ellos vio la luz en 1795, al poco de la llegada del autor a México, en tanto que el segundo hizo lo propio diez años después, en 1805. Size: 2 Vols. De 22 x 15,5 Cm. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Description of a forty-feet reflecting telescope.

      - London, The Royal Society of London, 1795. Large 4to (29.5 x 23.2 cm). 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.

        [L'amor contrastato, ossia La molinara]. Die Schöne Müllerin komisches Singspiel in zwei Aufzügen... Klavierauszug mit deutsch=und italienischem Texte... Pr. 3 Rth. [Piano-vocal score]

      Berlin: E.H.G. Christiani, 1795. First Edition. Scarce. Grove Music Online. OCLC no. 21830182. Robinson: Giovanni Paisiello A Thematic Catalog, p. 427. Not in BUC, Hoboken, or Hirsch. RISM P120. La molinara, to a libretto by Giuseppe Palomba, was first performed in Naples at the Teatro dei Fiorentini in the autumn of 1788. "Paisiello's opera attained great popularity throughout Europe over a period of four decades, rivalling the fame of his Il barbiere di Siviglia (1782). It received over 160 performances between 1790 and 1809 in Vienna, where its initial success was due in part to the cast of singers, which included the soprano Adriana Ferrarese, the bass Francesco Benucci and Gasparo Bellentani (one of the best buffo tenors at the Burgtheater)... The Act 2 duet 'Nel cor più non mi sento' was used as a basis for variations by a number of composers, including J. N. Hummel and Beethoven (WoO70). Beethoven also composed a set of nine variations for piano (WoO69) 'Quant'è più bello', an aria (not, however, by Paisiello) that was added for the revival of the opera in Vienna in 1795, which Beethoven probably heard. La molinara was also performed in German as Die schöne Müllerin and Die streitig gemachte Liebschaft... In this opera Paisiello proved himself a master of musical characterization... The opera bristles with melodic invention, and Acts 1 and 2 are ensembles organized as skilfully constructed chain finales." Gordana Lazarevich in Grove Music Online.. Oblong folio. Plain light brown wrappers. [1] (title), 2-87, [i] (blank) pp. Engraved. Text in Italian and German. Wrappers somewhat worn. Occasional light internal foxing; corners slightly creased; some leaves very lightly stained at upper margins; final blank page slightly soiled.
