        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 pneumatics - - John 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.'."

        Memoria sobre proporcionar arbitrios para la construcción de caminos en esta jurisdicción.

      en la imprenta de Estevan Bolona, 1795. Jáuregui (d. 1809) was the "primer consul del Real Tribunal del Consulado" in Cuba, and it was the Consulado's "Junta de Gobierno" that ordered this report published -- although his was the minority report. At the crown's urging, such Consulados had been created throughout the Empire to aim at economic development and commercial improvement of the various regions of the New World under Spanish control, in good Enlightenment fashion. Public works and land use are traditionally fraught with concern and intransigence on the part of the various parties involved, and in the Cuban case at hand, this was certainly so; the Junta had appointed a four-member committee "para meditar los arbitrios que conceptuasen mas oportunos y menos gravosos para la formacin de caminos" ("to decide the tax rates that will be least burdensome but still will bring about the most timely creation of [good] roads"). Jáuregui's opinion was clearly and concisely expressed and shows a progressive tax structure differentiating users of the roads and the wear each category was most likely to create. => Handsomely printed on extremely good quality paper. Searches of NUC, WorldCat, COPAC, CCPB, and the OPACs of the national libraries of Mexico and Spain locate only three copies: two in the U.S. and one in Chile. One of the U.S. copies is incomplete. How many copies may be in Cuban libraries is unknown.

        Essays on Philosophical Subjects... To which is prefixed, an Account of the Life and Writings of the Author; by Dugald Stewart.

      First edition, 4to, xcvi, 244 pp. Uncut in recent full calf, period gilt spine with a red label, a handsome copy.Published posthumously, Smith had instructed his executors to destroy 16 volumes of his manuscripts just before his demise so as to concentrate readers' attention on his most famous works, "The Theory of Moral Sentiments" and the "Wealth Of Nations". Nonetheless his friends deemed that his concern with his posthumous reputation was an "excessive solicitude" and that these essays were of sufficient quality to be published. In the preface the editors Joseph Black and John Hutton conclude that "though it is difficult to add much to the great fame he most justly acquired by his other writings, these will be read with satisfaction and pleasure".

        Extrait du Procés-Verbal des Séances du Conseil des anciens. Du 29 floréal, an 4 de la République francaise [Auszug aus den Protokollen der Sitzungen des Rates der Ältesten. Nachricht].

      In der dritten Phase der Französischen Revolution, der sog. Direktorialzeit von 1795 bis 1799, behauptete eine von besitzbürgerlichen Interessen bestimmte politische Führung die Macht einerseits gegen die Volksinitiativen für soziale Gleichheit und gegen monarchistische Restaurationsbestrebungen andererseits. Die vom Konvent am 22. August 1795 beschlossene, nach einer Volksabstimmung am 23. September in Kraft gesetzte neue Verfassung, etablierte in Frankreich ein Zweikammersystem. Zunächst bestand ein ?Rat der 500?, der die Gesetzesinitiative ausübte ? und ein 250 Mitglieder umfassender ?Rat der Alten? (vorbehalten den über 40-Jährigen im Unterschied zu den mindestens 30-Jährigen im ?Rat der 500?). Dessen Zustimmung war zur Ratifizierung von Gesetzesvorlagen erforderlich. Der ?Rat der Alten? wählte aufgrund einer Vorschlagsliste des ?Rates der 500? ein aus fünf Mitgliedern bestehendes Direktorium, das die Exekutive bildete und die Minister der einzelnen Ressorts bestimmte. Um die Fortdauer der neuen Machtverhältnisse zu sichern, hatte der Konvent in einer Zusatzbestimmung festgelegt, dass zwei Drittel der neuen Abgeordneten aus den Reihen der bisherigen Volksvertreter stammen mussten. Die radikaldemokratische Opposition, organisiert von François Noël Babeuf, der seinerseits Neujakobiner und Frühsozialisten in einer ?Verschwörung für die Gleichheit? um sich scharte, bereitete einen neuen Volksaufstand gegen das neu eingesetzte Direktorium vor. Mit dem ?Manifest der Plebejer? präsentierte Babeuf ein den Thermidorianern fundamental entgegengesetztes Gesellschaftskonzept, welches eine sozialistische Gütergemeinschaft beinhaltete. Vorgesehen war ein für alle Bürger geltendes Recht auf Arbeit ebenso wie die Pflicht zur Arbeit. Darüber hinaus dachte Babeuf an eine gemeinschaftliche Arbeitsorganisation und Verfügung über die Arbeitsprodukte. Unmittelbar vor der geplanten Erhebung, die angeblich auf den 22. Floréal 4 (11. Mai 1796) angesetzt war, wurden Babeuf und die führenden Mitverschwörer am 10. Mai 1796 verhaftet, er selbst nach mehrmonatiger Untersuchungshaft und Prozess ein Jahr später zum Tode verurteilt. Das vorliegende Dokument protokolliert die wesentlichen Dokumente der Affäre. Darunter ein Brief Babeufs an das exekutive Direktorium vom 23 Floréal 4 (S. 2-6) sowie verschiedene Eingaben des Ministers der Polizei, Cochon, den geplanten Aufstand der Verschwörer betreffend. Das Protokoll erschien am 29. Tag des Monats Floréal (nach dem im September 1792 inaugurierten Revolutionskalender der Monat der ?Blume?, der vom 20. April bis zum 19. Mai dauerte), während das Erscheinungsjahr 4 auf das vierte Jahr der französischen Republik, also 1796, verweist. Bei dem vorliegenden Protokoll handelt es sich um ein Schlüsseldokument aus der dritten Phase der französischen Revolution, welches als Original nur noch in wenigen Exemplaren existiert. In Schutzumschlag eingefügte Broschüre mit Randläsuren u. Knickspuren. Stockfleckig.

        Miniature Portrait of General Tadeusz Kosciuszko; finger-ring watercolor portrait reset in brooch

      America or Europe: Polish School, 1795. original. Victorian silver-and-enamel brooch with gold back. Portrait: Very Good/Frame: Very Good +. Polish School miniaturist. Portrait miniature--head & bust--of Tadeusz Kosciuszko: watercolor (image: 1.4 x 1 cm / 0.6" x 0.4"; framed: 4.1 x 3.5 cm /1.6" x 1.4") executed on natural material; wearing a military uniform (blue body cloth with red trimmed collar & red sash with silver epaulettes. Because Tadeusz Kosciuszko was made a "Brigadeer General" in the American Revolution and a "Major General" in the subsequent Russo-Polish conflicts, his silver epaulettes and our provisional dating convey the high and prestigeous rank of "General"--an impression reinforced by three medals that are depicted on Kosciuszko's breast. Formerly a miniature watercolor portrait set into a male finger-ring, this delicate minature of General Tadeusz Kosciuszko (1746-1817), the famous hero of the American Revolution, Polish-Russian War of 1792 and the Revolt of 1794, has been reset into a Victorian brooch whose front has been made of silver-and-enamel with a green fabric background, glass dome, with gold back & pin. (Pressing the evidence: The tiny blurred image of the central medal on the chest of Kosciuszko is possibly suggestive of the enameled gold Eagle of the Society of the Cincinnati (founded in 1783) that George Washington (d.1799) awarded Kosciuszko. See the colored portrait by Karl Gottlieb Schweikart (1772-1855)--from Wikipedia and our image #4--which was executed in 1802 and depicts the Eagle award. Schweikart's portrait is, of course, much more refined and larger than our miniature, but the pose and age of the subject are rather similar, as are aspects of the uniform: red collar, medal(s) &/or buttons, and silver epaulette. Exceptional quality -- especially considering its micro size of 1.3 x 1 cm, or approximately a 1/2-inch oval! Andrzej Tadeusz Bonawentura Kosciuszko (1746-1817; his surname is roughly pronounced "Kos-CHOOS-ko") was a Polish military engineer and a highly skilled military leader who became a national hero in Poland, Lithuania, and the United States. He fought in the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth's struggles against Russia and Prussia, and on the American side during the American Revolutionary War. He worked closely with General George Washington, who was eager to use Kosciuszko's skills as a military engineer. Subsequently, as Supreme Commander of the Polish National Armed Forces, he led the 1794 "Kosciuszko Uprising." In 1776, Kosciuszko moved to North America, where--over an 8-year period--he took part in the American Revolutionary War as a colonel in the Continental Army. He fought in the battle of Fort Ticonderoga and executed the plans for the pivotal battle of Saratoga in New York. An accomplished military engineer, at Washington's request, he designed and oversaw the construction of several superior fortifications, including those at West Point, New York. The latter became the largest fort in America and took two and one half years to construct. Kosciuszko felt that it was his finest achievement. In 1783, in recognition of his services, the Continental Congress promoted him to brigadier general and made him a citizen. Returning to Poland in 1784, Kosciuszko was commissioned a major general in the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth Army. After the Polish-Russian War of 1792 had resulted in the Second Partition of Poland, he organized an uprising against Russia serving as its Naczelnik (commander-in-chief). Russian forces captured him at the Battle of Maciejowice in October 1794. The defeat of the Kosciuszko Uprising led to Poland's Third Partition in 1795, which ended the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth's independent existence for 123 years. In 1796, pardoned by Tsar Paul I, he emigrated to the United States. A close friend of Thomas Jefferson, with whom he shared ideals on human rights, Kosciuszko later abolished serfdom in Poland via the so-called "Manifesto of Polaniaec" and tried to enable peasants to own the land they worked. Jefferson said of him: "He was as pure a Son of Liberty as I have ever known."' The Polish-American hero also wrote a will dedicating his American assets to the education and freedom of U.S. slaves. Regrettably, the execution of his will proved difficult--Thomas Jefferson had been named as executor--and the funds were never used for the purpose he had intended.--adapting Wikipedia and other references. Condition: Very Good. Currently set into a Victorian brooch made of silver and enamel. Probably "Polish School" for creator. Our images show other portraits of this military-and-political hero. Illustrated gold watch with chain & fob is for illustrative purposes to suggest scale and is not included in sale of miniature portrait.

        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.

      1795 - relaying a detailed set of instructions from General Kléber as to the logistics involved in transporting the Army of Sambre and Meuse across the Rhine, 2 sides folio, Headquarters at Rumelen, 17 fructidor III (3 September The document relates in meticulous detail the order in which the army must cross in order to get the maximum number of men over in the minimum amount of time. The order of crossing is indicated, with the grenadiers, a company of sappers and their equipment and as many calvary as possible going first to protect the disembarkation point. Kleber states that between three and four thousand men can be transported at one time. He urges caution, however, and suggests that experienced boatmen will be required to avoid possible loss of troops. The army of Sambre and Meuse fought a brilliant rear-guard action at the bridge of Neuwied the following month.

        Judaica The Book of Jasher

      Translated by Samuel Moses [1795-1860], Sefer Hayashar or The Book of Jasher Refered to in Joshua and Second Samuel, Faithfully Translated from the Original Hebrew into English. M. M. Noah & A. S. Gould, New York, N.Y. 1840., 24.5 x 15 cm., hard stamped calico cover 6 blank pages, 2 pp, (with certificates). III - XXXIII, 267, pp. Title page and pp. I-II are missing Dedication on inner side of front cover from 1841 Marks of ex-library Cover worn, rubbed to edges,corners bumped and chipped spine is almost missing but binding still tight. Foxing stains throughout the book, some pages foxed more some less, some minimal Apparently the first U.S. edition. Preface by M. M. Noah. This is a translation of the rabbinic Book of Yashar compiled from the Babylonian Talmud and other Jewish sources, and intermixed with Arabic legends and passages of the Bible. Three fourths of the book are devoted to the pre-Mosaic period, one fifth to the Mosaic period and only three pages to later history. The original edition appeared in Naples in 1552. A Latin version by Johann G. Abicht appeared in Leipzig, 1732, with the title: Dissertatio de libro recti. In 1750 the London printer Thomas Ilive issued an English translation of the work asserting that he had published the real "Book of Yashar" mentioned in the Bible. The present copy is apparently the first U.S. edition. The work also has significance for Rosicrucians and Masons. The book has approbations by Isaac Nordheimer, H. V. Nathan, the rabbi of the synagogue in Kingston, Jamaica, Samuel H. Turner and pr Geo.Bush NY. Moses Samuel (1795-1860) by Saul Marks Moses Samuel (1795-1860) Moses Samuel was a watchmaker and Hebrew scholar, born in London in 1795. His father, Emanuel (Menachem) Samuel (c.1755-c.1800), had emigrated from Kempen, in the province of Posen, Poland, and settled in London c.1775. His father having died, Moses and his mother, Hannah (Hinde; 1752-1822), moved to Liverpool in 1805, where his elder brothers had already settled. He had very little formal education but was an outstanding linguist and is said to have mastered twelve languages, including Chinese! He established a business as a watchmaker and silversmith in Liverpool, and married Harriet Israel (1793-1843) in 1821. They had two daughters and three sons; the sons married three daughters of Schreiner Wolfe of Great Yarmouth, who was the first mayor of Kimberley in the northern Cape Colony, South Africa. Samuel studied the philosophy of Moses Mendelssohn, whom he called "the grand luminary of science and knowledge" and became the leading interpreter and translator of Mendelssohn's work in English. He published English editions of Mendelssohn's Jerusalem (1838) and the celebrated correspondence between Mendelssohn and Lavater, published as part of the former's memoirs. Samuel also translated the Book of Jasher (1840) into English. This was falsely alleged to be an ancient Hebrew text, but he still sold his translation for £150 to be published in New York. Sadly, due to a disagreement with his publisher over the authenticity of the Book, Samuel's name does not appear on it. Although his translation was accepted as accurate, many scholars criticised the claims of the text. Samuel fought hard against Christian proselytisation within the Jewish community, publishing anti-missionary pamphlets in 1819, 1822 and 1827. He campaigned for Jewish emancipation, and it was during a meeting about this in 1840 that he collapsed for the first time, probably due to a stroke. In 1845, a second attack would leave him paralysed. Nevertheless, he persisted in his literary work and earned a living as a language teacher in his later years. Although Liberal in his politics, Samuel was strictly observant of orthodox Judaism. He opposed the growth of the Reform movement, but he did accept some innovations in synagogue ritual, such as sermons in English. In 1846-7, in conjunction with the minister to the Liverpool Jewish community, DM Isaacs, Samuel edited Kos Yeshuot ("Cup of Salvation"), which was a monthly magazine "devoted to the advocacy of Orthodox Jewish principles", in which many contributions appeared in Hebrew with English translations. The magazine's publication of original articles in Hebrew on secular subjects was unusual for the period, particularly in England, and a good example of these is one by Samuel himself, celebrating the railway engine. Unlike his brother Louis Samuel (1794-1859), Moses remained a poor man, although he did compile a library of rare Hebrew books. He died at Ranelagh Place, Mount Pleasant, on 17 April 1860, leaving an estate of under £100. His jewellery and watchmaking business had taken very much a back seat to his linguistic and political work, and suffered badly in the process. However, by the turn of the 20th century, his son, Walter Samuel (1829-63) and his wife Harriet (1836-1908) transformed it into the first and most successful multiple-shop jeweller's in Britain: H Samuel (named after Harriet). Moses' great-grandson, Gilbert Samuel Edgar, served as company chairman from 1935-78. In a far cry from Moses' orthodox Jewish roots, one of his descendants included a Roman Catholic priest, Father Edward Hill, along with a Metropolitan Police magistrate, Geoffrey George Raphael. His great-nephew was Herbert Louis Samuel, the first Viscount Samuel.

        Musae Etonenses.

      London: G. Stafford,, 1795. Seu Carminum Delectus nunc primum in lucem editus. 3 volumes in 2, octavo (228 x 155 mm). Contemporary diced russia by Ingalton, titles to smooth spines gilt in compartments, decorative frame to covers gilt, turn-ins gilt, marbled edges and endpapers, green silk markers. Text in Latin in vols. 1 and 2, Greek in vol. 3. Spines lightly faded, slight bumps to tips, short closed tear to foot of title page of vol. 1; an excellent handsomely bound set. First edition, large paper issue, with the errata and list of subscribers, in a scarce and handsome Eton binding by Ingalton. This is William Herbert's first book, a collection of poetry in Latin and Greek, edited at the age of 17 whilst a student at Eton. Herbert went on to serve as MP for Hampshire and Cricklade, later being ordaining and serving as Dean of Manchester. He also gained a high reputation, "as a classical scholar, a linguist, and a naturalist", and published a number of books on various scholarly topics (ODNB). Volume one has the scarce Ingalton's binder's ticket to the rear pastedown; Ingalton, an Eton based book binder and publisher, reprinted the Musae Etonenses in 1817 with additional material. Despite the high number of binders operating out of Eton at this time it is unusual to find a signed binding such as this one. Additionally with the armorial bookplate of old Etonian Edmund Pollexfen Bastard to the front pastedowns. Bastard served as MP for Dartmouth and from 1816, Devon, succeeding his uncle and passing the seat of Dartmouth to his younger brother. As an M.P. he, "initially drew attention to himself only by the 'rarity' of his attendance, as Lord Granville noted in 1816"(History of Parliament). The whole presents a fine union of Etonian text, binder, and provenance.

Nel corso del XVIII secolo Ginevra, retta da un'organizzazione oligarchica monopolizzata dal patriziato, dovette far fronte, nelle nuove condizioni create dallo sviluppo bancario e industriale, a numerosi tentativi di rivolta dei rappresentanti borghesi che erano stati privati dei diritti politici: sommosse si verificarono nel 1707, nel 1738, nel 1766-1768 e nel 1782. Questi tentativi insurrezionali precedettero la rivoluzione del 1794, sulla quale influì anche la propaganda francese. L'instaurazione di un governo rivoluzionario preparò poi l'unione della città con la Francia (1798) e Ginevra divenne capoluogo del dipartimento del Lemano. Nel 1814 essa riacquistò la propria indipendenza e, accresciuta di alcuni territori, entrò come cantone nella Confederazione Elvetica (12 settembre 1814). Più tardi (1815) la nuova situazione fu sancita dal trattato di Vienna. François d'Ivernois (1757-1842) avvocato e uomo politico ginevrino. Nel 1782 ottenne un seggio al Consiglio dei Duecento ma fu condannato all'esilio: stabilitosi in Inghilterra, rientrò a Ginevra nel 1792. Valente pubblicista e scrittore finanziario, fu un tenace e un fermo oppositore della Francia, contro il cui governo pubblicò violenti scritti.

Afm. (voorstelling): 54,5 x 94 cm.Uitgeverij Mortier, Covens en Zoon is waarschijnlijk in 1794 begonnen met het vervaardigen van deze kaart. Hij kwam gereed tijdens het eerste jaar van de Bataafse Republiek (1795-1801). Het was een staatsvorm die de voormalige Republiek der Zeven Verenigde Nederlanden met hun Generaliteitslanden bestuurde. In de aanloop hiertoe bezette het Franse Noorderleger onder commando van brigade-generaal Charles Pichegru op 19 januari 1795 Amsterdam. Via en fluwelen revolutie werden de zittende regenten vervangen door bestuurders met Franse sympathie?n.Er volgenden verschillende uitgaven van de kaart, met telkens kleine veranderingen in de decoraties of het kaartbeeld die de woelige geschiedenis van ons land weerspiegelen: de Bataafse tijd, de jaren van koning Lodewijk Napoleon, de jaren van inlijving bij het Franse keizerrijk onder Napoleon en de eerste jaren daarna. Zo heet op dit exemplaar uit 1820 de Dam weer Den Dam en niet meer het Revolutie Plein of Plein Napoleon, heet ?t Burgerplein weer Koningsplein is het stadhuis inmiddels paleis en is de waag op de Dam inmiddels afgebroken.Prijs: ?3.450,- (incl. lijst).

      AMSTERDAM AAN HET BEGIN VAN DE FRANSE TIJD?Feest der alliantie tusschen de Fransche en Bataafsche Republieken, gevierd te Amsterdam, op het Plein der Revolutie den 19den Junij, 1795. Het eerste jaar der Bataafsche vryheid.?? Kopergravure uit 1796 door Reinier Vinkeles en Daniel Vrydag naar een tekening van Jacques Kuyper, uitgegeven door kunsthandelaar Cornelis Sebille Roos te Amsterdam. Later met de hand gekleurd. Afm.: ca. 42 x 51 cm.Net als in andere delen van Europa groeide eind 18de eeuw in de Republiek der Zeven Verenigde Nederlanden weerstand tegen de adel, de wens naar een eerlijker bestuur en een meer egalitaire maatschappij, zodat een einde zou kunnen worden gemaakt aan het verdelen van baantjes binnen de regentenklasse. De Orangisten, die stadhouder Willem V zijn absolutistische macht wilden laten behouden, stonden tegenover de patriotten die, onder invloed van de Franse idee?n van de Verlichting en de Amerikaanse Revolutie, meer democratisch invloed op het benoemingsbeleid wilden uitoefenen en meer kansen wilden scheppen voor uitgesloten delen van de bevolking.De Franse tijd begon in het grootste gedeelte van Nederland met de Bataafse Revolutie in 1795, waarbij Nederlandse patriotten, met steun van een Frans leger dat het land was binnengetrokken, de Bataafse Republiek uitriepen. Stadhouder Willem V vertrok naar Engeland in ballingschap.Na het eerdere ?feest der vrijheid? op de Dam, zien hier het "feest der alliantie". Een grote menigte danst om de vrijheidsboom. Bij het onderschrift zien we de drie allegorische emblemen van Vrijheid, Gelijkheid en Broederschap die ook aan de boom hangen.De Franse tijd eindigde toen Napoleon in 1813 werd verslagen en afstand deed van de troon. In dat jaar keerde de oudste zoon van Willem V uit ballingschap terug naar Nederland en aanvaardde koning Willem I als soeverein vorst de regering over Nederland.Prijs: ?1.350,-.

        Constitution Signer, William Blount, signs a 1795 Tennessee document as Governor of the Southwest territory

      Tennessee, July 23, 1795. 8" x 13". "Single page manuscripted document signed, 8"" x 13"". Dated ""23rd July 1795"". Boldly signed by US Constitution Signer William Blount, ""Wm Blount"" while as Governor of the Southwest Territory. Expected folds, archival support tissue to verso of center fold, outer corners and to the verso of Blount's signature. Saw toothed seal present and affixed to upper left corner. Overall and occasional handling marks.A signed warrant from 1795, for payment of Troops within Blount's jurisdiction for the protection of the frontiers as shown in part below;""William Blount Governor in and over the Territory of the United States South of the river Ohio. To David Henley Esquire agent for the Department of War.Pay to William Rickard Pay Mater protem to the Troops in the Territory aforesaid one hundred and eleven dollars out of the money in your hands appropriated for the defensive protection of the fontiers for the pay of a Detachment of troops from the Tennessee County Militia …""William Blount was a member of the North Carolina delegation at the Constitutional Convention of 1787, and led efforts in North Carolina to ratify the Constitution in 1789. He subsequently served as the only governor of the Southwest Territory, and played a leading role in helping the territory gain admission to the Union as the State of Tennessee. He was selected as one of Tennessee's initial U.S. senators in 1796, one year after the signing of this warrant for payment of Troops that were commissioned under the command of Lieutenant Archibald Edmonson. Blount was also known for his efforts in the legislature to open the lands west of the Appalachians to settlement. As Governor of the Southwest Territory, he negotiated the Treaty of Hoston in 1791, bringing thousands of acres of Indian lands under U.S. control. As an aggressive land speculator, Blount gradually acquired millions of acres in Tennessee and the trans-Appalachian west. However his poor timing and risky land investments ultimately left him in debt.A fantastic signature by Blount who signs this document with an exceptionally large, bold and outstanding flourish."

Francesco Petrarca (July 20, 1304 July 19, 1374), commonly anglicized as Petrarch, was an Italian scholar and poet in Renaissance Italy, and one of the earliest humanists. Petrarch's rediscovery of Cicero's letters is often credited for initiating the 14th-century Renaissance. Petrarch is often called the "Father of Humanism". In the 16th century, Pietro Bembo created the model for the modern Italian language based on Petrarch's works, as well as those of Giovanni Boccaccio, and, to a lesser extent, Dante Alighieri. Petrarch would be later endorsed as a model for Italian style by the Accademia della Crusca. Petrarch's sonnets were admired and imitated throughout Europe during the Renaissance and became a model for lyrical poetry. He is also known for being the first to develop the concept of the "Dark Ages." This standing back from his time was possible because he straddled two worlds - the classical and his own modern day. (Wikipedia) ___________________________ Susannah Dobson née Dawson (died 1795) was an English translator, from the south of England. The daughter of John Dawson of the parish of St Dunstan, London, she married in 1759 a physician, Dr Matthew Dobson of Liverpool, who died at Bath, Somerset in 1784. They had three children. Frances Burney mentions that in 1780 Susannah Dobson was ambitious to get into Mrs Thrale's circle, but the latter was not keen: "Mrs Dobson persecutes me strangely as if with violent & undesired Friendship yet Mrs Lewis says She is jealous." A modern view of what Thrale wrote in Thraliana is that it implied Dobson was a lesbian. Burney wrote of her, "Though coarse, low-bred, forward, self-sufficient, and flaunting, she seems to have a strong masculine understanding." Dr Dobson had become Mrs Thrale's physician. Susannah Dobson died 30 September 1795, and was buried at St Paul's, Covent Garden. (Wikipedia)

      Paris: Pierre Didot l'aîné, 1795. Attractively printed by Didot, this is a little gem of a copy of the works of Montesquieu in bindings decorated in the style of, and with tools attributable to, Bozerian le jeune. The frame of interlocking circles was a favorite of the younger Bozerian; it can be seen, for example, on a copy of "Essai sur les Révolutions" held by the Bibliothèque Nationale de France and on a copy of Petrarch in a binding very similar to the present one (and signed by le jeune), which sold as lot #246 in the Foyle sale. Charles-Louis de Secondat, baron de La Brède et de Montesquieu (1689-1755) was one of the most influential political philosophers of the Enlightenment; among his many contributions to political thought was his notion of the separation of powers into executive, legislative, and judicial branches, a plan adopted by the framers of the U.S. Constitution. His masterpiece,"De l'Esprit des Lois" ("The Spirit of the Law"), sets forth this separation of powers and other methods of preventing governments from becoming despotic. It occupies volumes I-VII of the present set, and is followed by "Lettres Persanes" ("Persian Letters," volumes VIII-IX); the novels "Temple de Gnide" and "Arsace et Isménie," with the "Essai sur le Gout" (volume X); "La Grandeur des Romains et de leur Décadence" (volume XI); and a collection of letters and "Pensées" (volume XII). Such was the printing genius of Didot that the text--even in this duodecimo edition with a small typeface--looks spacious, has comfortable margins, and provides easy, pleasant reading.. 140 x 83 mm. (5 1/2 x 3 1/4"). 12 volumes. VERY PLEASING CONTEMPORARY RED STRAIGHT-GRAIN MOROCCO, HANDSOMELY GILT, IN THE STYLE OF BOZERIAN, covers bordered by dogtooth and plain gilt rules enclosing a frame of interlocked circles, flat spines divided into compartments by plain and decorative gilt rules, two compartments with a myriad of small tools emanating from a central circlet, two compartments with stylized star tool at center and calligraphic flourishes at corners, gilt titling, turn-ins with gilt Greek key role, all edges gilt. One flyleaf with paper flaw, faint yellowing on a few leaves, but AN ABSOLUTELY LOVELY SET, the decorative original bindings very lustrous and virtually unworn, and the text, bright, clean, smooth, and fresh.

Charles-Louis de Secondat, baron de La Brède et de Montesquieu (1689-1755) was one of the most influential political philosophers of the Enlightenment; among his many contributions to political thought was his notion of the separation of powers into executive, legislative, and judicial branches, a plan adopted by the framers of the U.S. Constitution. His masterpiece,"De l'Esprit des Lois" ("The Spirit of the Law"), sets forth this separation of powers and other methods of preventing governments from becoming despotic. It occupies volumes I-VII of the present set, and is followed by "Lettres Persanes" ("Persian Letters," volumes VIII-IX); the novels "Temple de Gnide" and "Arsace et Isménie," with the "Essai sur le Gout" (volume X); "La Grandeur des Romains et de leur Décadence" (volume XI); and a collection of letters and "Pensées" (volume XII). Such was the printing genius of Didot that the text--even in this duodecimo edition with a small typeface--looks spacious, has comfortable margins, and provides easy, pleasant reading.

        Passport for the Bark Belle, Ichabod Handy, Master, New Bedford Mass., 1844.

      Folio vellum sheet 13 x 15 1/4 inches, with engraved headpiece and printed text, accomplished in manuscript. A very interesting example of this type of document, with the standard engraving of a ship and a lighthouse at the top of the sheet, and the upper edge scalloped as is usual. Supposedly, the scalloped top edge would fit into a jig held by the local customs agent. This would prevent forgery and overcome the obstacle of illiteracy. This type of passport or sea letter is known as a Mediterranean Passport. It came into use following our 1795 treaty with Algiers. These passports would be recognized by members of the Barbary states and, under terms of the treaty, ships bearing them would be allowed to pass. As you might suppose, ships carrying these documents were merchant vessels with business in the Mediterranean. What makes this particular example unusual - singular, in my experience - is that the "Belle" was a whale ship, 320 22/95 tons, built in Mattapoisett in 1844 and sailing out of Fairhaven to the Pacific Ocean on this, her maiden voyage. According to Starbuck, Ichabod Handy was her master on this voyage. It lasted an extraordinary eight years - from 1844 to 1852, at which time she returned with only 350 barrels of sperm oil. So the questions are many. What was she doing out there for so long? Why did she return so little oil? Why was she carrying a Mediterranean Passport? Here's what Michael Dyer of the New Bedford Whaling Museum has to say, "There is something mighty peculiar about this piece as described. For one thing itÂ’s a bit late for a Mediterranean Passport. By the 1840s they had been largely replaced by Four-Language Sea Letters." True enough. So not only is she carrying a document for the wrong ocean, it's an outdated document for the wrong ocean. Was Ichabod Handy an autograph collector? This passport has the United States seal, as well as the clear, strong signatures of President John Tyler and Secretary of State John C. Calhoun. The great bookseller Peter Howard said something to the effect that books are riddles for booksellers to solve. The same is true, at least in this case, for Mediterranean Passports. Very good condition,

        Essays on Philosophical Subjects... To which is prefixed, an Account of the Life and Writings of the Author; by Dugald Stewart

      London: T. Cadell Jun. and W. Davies, and W. Creech, Edinburgh, 1795. First edition, 4to, xcvi, 244 pp. Uncut in recent full calf, period gilt spine with a red label, a handsome copy. Published posthumously, Smith had instructed his executors to destroy 16 volumes of his manuscripts just before his demise so as to concentrate readers' attention on his most famous works, "The Theory of Moral Sentiments" and the "Wealth Of Nations". Nonetheless his friends deemed that his concern with his posthumous reputation was an "excessive solicitude" and that these essays were of sufficient quality to be published. In the preface the editors Joseph Black and John Hutton conclude that "though it is difficult to add much to the great fame he most justly acquired by his other writings, these will be read with satisfaction and pleasure"

        1792-1795 Augusta, Georgia Late Eighteenth Century Ledger

      [Augusta, Georgia], 1795. Vellum. Good. 8vo. Approx. 9" x 6". [86] leaves (192 pages). Vellum binding. Several pages are loose, detached and laid inside binding. Vellum strip used for closing book mostly gone. Vertical crack on left edge of front cover. Small chip to vellum spine. Small tears to vellum binding. Normal toning to contents. Several pages in the middle have (dried) dark spots. A. W. initials on the front paste down. An inscription written on page 1 - "Valentine Walker. My Grandfather's brother. This book was given me a bring(?) Uncle Val's Scrap book. So I hand it down to prosperity in good faith. It is too old and interesting to destroy. So let us accept it as his and treasure it accordingly. Agnes Walker Pendleton. Wednesday. June 4 - 1924- 53 - E. 11 - St. Atlanta, Ga." Ledger is completely used with several names recorded. A loose index of 23 pages of account names with the leaf number precedes the first account. The accounts have the word "Contra" boldly written at the top most of the accounts and the letter "D" preceding the name of the individuals account. Earliest dates recorded in the ledger are from 1792. Goods listed include cotton, whiskey, rum, baskets, buckles, shoes, tobacco, muslin, clothing, etc. This ledger consists of several prominent names in the Augusta, Georgia Richmond County region. The inscription written by Agnes Pendleton Walker points to Valentine Walker as the owner. However it is not certain the ledger is in his hand. The accounts are dated supposedly before he moved to Georgia in 1797. Valentine Walker served as Brigadier General of the 1st Brigade, 2nd Division of the Georgia State Militia in 1810. He later practiced law in Augusta and had a distinguished career as Justice in Richmond County. Freeman Walker and and his younger brother Valentine both moved to Augusta, Georgia in 1797. Their two older brothers, George and Robert Walker, were already practicing law in Augusta at the time. George and Robert Walker names are both listed in accounts. George Walker's name is written on leaf number 12. Robert Walker's account is listed on leaf number 67 and on the rear end sheet. Based on the preliminary research of several names, information provided by the previous owner Agnes Walker Pendleton, and an account inscription signed by Arthur Donnely in Augusta March 8, 1794, it is probable this account ledger originated in the Augusta Georgia area. Other localities recorded include Georgetown, Washington, Charleston, and Oglethorpe. A few Plantation names are also listed. Prominent Georgian individuals with accounts include Ignatious Few (Captain Ignatious Few?), (General) John Twiggs (Richmond County), and George Walton (possibly the same person who signed the American Declaration of Independence listed on leaf number 32). George Walton died in Augusta in 1804. Other prominent names listed include Charles Crawford, John Martin (Campbels Plantation), Peter Goodwin, Robert Worsham, James Gardner, Ephraim Sanders, Thomas Bray, Thomas Lamar, Isaac Wingate, John Butler, Reuben Allen, James Robertson, Colonel Samuel Hammond (Rae's Hall Plantation), John Tindall (Kiokees), Solomon Newsom, McIntosh, Wilcox, McCabe, Garrett, Churchill, Cummins, Kennedy, Gaddy, and many more.
