        THIRD CONGRESS OF THE UNITED STATES...AN ACT MAKING APPROPRIATIONS FOR THE SUPPORT OF THE MILITARY ESTABLISHMENT FOR THE YEAR ONE THOUSAND SEVEN HUNDRED AND NINETY FIVE; AND FOR THE EXPENSES OF THE MILITIA LATELY CALLED INTO THE SERVICE OF THE UNITED STATES [caption title]

      Philadelphia, 1795. Old fold lines. Minor age toning and a few small tears at extremities. Very good. An Act passed by the Third Congress appropriating funds for the military, and in particular, those troops sent to Western Pennsylvania to quell the Whiskey Rebellion. George Washington's presidential message of November 22, 1792 advocated a tax on distilled spirits, and Alexander Hamilton was a strong proponent of the whiskey excise tax, which was part of his overall plan for putting the federal government on a sound fiscal basis. As with many of his other proposals, it aroused bitter opposition in some quarters. Some objected that it laid federal taxes which properly belong to the states, while frontier representatives considered themselves singled out for an onerous tax. The impact of the whiskey revenue took several years to take full effect while the system of collectors was installed. Growing resistance to the tax continued to develop through the summer of 1794, when the Whiskey Rebellion really began. Congress repealed the excise tax on distilled spirits in March 1797, effectively ending the cause of the revolt. "Approved, thirty first Decr. 1794" and signed in print by Speaker of the House Frederick Augustus Muhlenberg, Vice President John Adams, and President George Washington. Two states of this imprint are noted. One, Evans 29689, includes a statement of deposition: "Deposited among the rolls in the Office of the Secretary of State. Secretary of State," and is signed by Secretary of State Edmund Randolph. The other, Bristol B9365, is without this statement. This is the former, signed by Secretary of State Edmund Randolph. NAIP locates four copies in all, but does not distinguish between the two states. Scarce in either format, and particularly rare with the signature of the Secretary of State. Edmund Randolph became the second Secretary of State on January 2, 1794, succeeding Thomas Jefferson, who resigned at the end of 1793. He continued the practice begun in the First Congress of the Secretary of State signing a small number of "official" copies of Congressional acts for distribution to the States and important government officials. After the Third Congress, official acts were no longer signed in manuscript by the Secretary of State.

        [MANUSCRIPT MEMORANDUM CONCERNING COPPER MINING AND EXPLORATION IN CARVER LAND GRANT IN THE GREAT LAKES REGION, SIGNED BY WILLIAM PATERSON, HENRY KNOX, AND FOUR OTHERS, AND INVOLVING ALEXANDER HAMILTON]

      [Np], 1795. Small quarto, on a folded folio sheet. Old folds. Minor soiling. Narrow strip of later paper attached to left edge. Very good. In a brown half morocco and cloth clamshell case, spine gilt. A significant memorandum signed by several important Revolutionary-era figures, including William Paterson and Henry Knox, concerning a joint venture to investigate copper mines in the Great Lakes region on the so-called Carver Grant. Many public figures in the founding days of the United States dabbled in land speculation and other similar ventures. This group of eminent Americans was apparently involved with the Carver Grant, a land grant totaling hundreds of square miles located in western Wisconsin and in Minnesota (including the present- day location of Saint Paul), which was supposedly given to explorer Jonathan Carver by two local Sioux chiefs in 1767. For several decades after Carver's death his heirs and various others tried to capitalize on the grant by petitioning the United States Congress to recognize its validity, and by selling and reselling lands in the region. Jonathan Carver (1710-80) was born in Weymouth, Massachusetts, raised in Connecticut, and spent most of his adult years in western Massachusetts. He distinguished himself through his service in the French and Indian War, and in 1766-67 undertook to explore Great Britain's newly-won lands around the Upper Mississippi River, partly with a mind to seeking a route to the Pacific Ocean. Carver spent the 1770s in London, petitioning the Crown for compensation for his explorations and seeking to publish the journal of his travels. Carver's TRAVELS THROUGH THE INTERIOR PARTS OF NORTH AMERICA was published in London in 1778 and was immediately popular, appearing in several editions. Despite this, Carver died penniless in London in 1780. In 1781 a "third edition" of Carver's TRAVELS appeared, issued by Dr. John Lettsom, a benefactor of Carver's British widow. In that edition, as part of biographical material on Jonathan Carver, the text of a deed dated May 1, 1767 was published for the first time, in which Carver was apparently given hundreds of miles of land in Minnesota and western Wisconsin. Over the next several decades Carver's heirs in the United States and England, as well as dozens of others who bought and tried to sell land in the grant area, worked to prove the validity of the grant and to profit from the sales. Congress was petitioned to validate the grant, the heirs of the Sioux chiefs were appealed to, and various schemes were developed by Samuel Harrison of Vermont, the Rev. Samuel Peters, and others, to sell and resell the land. The decades-long tale of the Carver Grant is best told by Milo Quaife and John Parker in the references cited below. The present document reads: "Memorandum that we whose names are hereunto subscribed do covenant, promise and agree with each other to use our separate and joint interest in obtaining a right of preemption for the lands mentioned in a book known by the title of Carver's TRAVELS and where he mentions having seen vast quantities of virgin copper and we further covenant with each other that we will become equally concerned in the above undertaking both in profit and loss. Witness our hands this thirteenth day of March and year seventeen hundred and ninety five. [signed] Benj. Henfrey / Wm. Paterson / H. Knox / W. Macpherson / Anthy. W. White / James Chambers." The docketing on the second leaf contains a list of "parties to the within articles respecting the exploring the country on Lake Superior, &c," and the list includes Knox, Paterson, Alexander Hamilton, New Jersey Governor Richard Howell, and six others, plus "if approved by him, His Excellency the Honble. Major General [Anthony] Wayne." Hamilton at this point had been a private citizen for six weeks, having retired as Secretary of the Treasury on Jan. 31, 1795. The document is signed by William Paterson, a signer of the Constitution, U.S. Senator, governor of New Jersey (1790-93), and Associate Justice of the Supreme Court from 1793 until his death in 1806; Henry Knox, Washington's first secretary of war (1789-94); William Bingham, a Pennsylvania Congressman; Benjamin Henfrey, an Englishman who had emigrated to Pennsylvania and patented a method of making gas light, using his "thermo-lamp," which he showcased in Baltimore, Richmond, and Philadelphia; and William Macpherson and Anthony W. White, who both served in the United States Army and were involved in quelling the Whiskey Rebellion in 1794. A remarkable document illustrating a pioneering western joint venture, and Alexander Hamilton's return to private investing. This document sold for $7170 at Heritage Auctions on Oct. 24, 2007.

        Entrance tokens for Gilbert Pidcock's menagerie, ca 1795

      circa, 1795. Two bronze tokens, diameter 21cms. in very good condition. Pidcock's menagerie was at Exeter Exchange on the Strand in London. He exhibited exotic animals since 1793, including a kangaroo, elephant, rhinoceros and cockatoos. The tokens here on offer are one showing an elephant and on verso a cockatoo; the other showing an elephant and a two-headed cow. Gilbert Pidcock had worked in travelling shows since he was a young man, and in 1795 took sole ownership of the London-based menagerie which bore his name, situated in the Strand in a building called the Exeter Change. One of the grand sights of the metropolis, people flocked to see the exotic animals and birds on show, and he started at an ideal time for acquiring specimens from Australian and South-East Asia. One of Pidcock's regular visitors was the wood engraver and artist Thomas Bewick, who used the animals as models for the engravings he included in works like his famous General History of Quadrupeds.The rare bronze token advertising their acquisition of a crested cockatoo, given the rather limited detail of the present specimen, and the lack of explicit records of the birds kept by Pidcock, it is not possible to be precise about exactly what kind of cockatoo is depicted: having said that, it must be one of the birds endemic to Australia or Indonesia: the sulphur-, orange-, yellow- or otherwise crested cockatoos. In John White's Journal of a Voyage to New South Wales, to cite one obvious comparison, there is a "Crested Cockatoo" that was drawn by Sarah Stone.The two-headed heifer was a live exhibit and an advertisement referring to it appeared in the 29th January 1791 edition of the London Chronicle: "Now exhibiting at the Lyceum Strand. The surprising Heifer with two heads. This very remarkable creature has two Heads, Four Horns, Four Ears, Four Nostrils, through each of which it breathes, &c. This truly wonderful Curiosity is the only one of the kind in Europe; and what is more astonishing, it takes its Sustenance with both mouths at the same time, to the admiration of the Faculty, and the Beholders in general; and it also the received opinion of John Hunter, Esq., Professor of Anatomy, that it has two hearts. One of the Heads, together with the Horns, represents that of a bull, and the other a Cow. The height of the animal is thirteen hands, and each Horn measures twenty-five inches long. Admittance One Shilling. N.B.- Most money given for all sorts of foreign Beasts and Birds, if alive, by G. Pidcock."

        Fullständig afhandling om electriciteten. Öfversättning jemte tillägg och anmärkningar af Carl Gust. Sjöstén, Carl Pet. Ohrling [A complete treatise on electricity]. I-III.

      1795 - Lund, J. Lundblad, 1795-96. 8:o. (14),184,184-207,(2) + (2),387,(1) + (2),4,7-139,(13) pp. & 8 folded engraved plates. Contemporary half calf with gilt spine and beige glazed paper label. Spine somewhat faded and blotchy and with some scratching. Rear cover with some superficial worming. Old ink note and an auction ticket on front pastedown. Insert fine with occasional minor stains, for example fingerprints in the text on p. 383 in part II. Signature of Samuel Wallner. Plates engraved by J. M. Weller. The third part treats the use of electricity within medicine. Translated from the third edition of Gehler's German translation of the English original "Complete treatise of electricity", published in London in 1777. Furthermore the translators have added information from other sources to the critical apparatus. Tiberius Cavallo (1749-1809) was born in England but worked in England. He made many improvements to scientific instruments and is especially known for "Cavallo's multiplier" which could amplify minor electrical charges and make them measurable in an electroscope. He became a Fellow of the Royal Society in 1779. Samuel Wallner (1778-1865) defended his doctor's thesis under the presidency of the Linnean disciple Thunberg in 1800 and 1804. He later worked within the medical service in Hudiksvall in the northern part of Sweden. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Landschaft mit Blick auf ein Schlößchen, wahrscheinlich in der Umgebung von München.

      - Bleistift auf Bütten, rechts unten signiert „Franz Kobell fecit"; verso alte Inventarnummer. 18,7:24,5 cm. Bleistiftzeichnungen gehören zu den Seltenheiten im sehr umfangreichen zeichnerischen Œuvre Franz Kobells. Vermutlich um 1795 nach der Italienreise entstanden, als er sich mit seiner neuen Heimat München auseinandersetzte und Motive von München und seiner Umgebung in schlichten und unprätentiösen Zeichnungen wiedergab. Ein vergleichbares Blatt ist abgebildet in: Th. Herbig, Franz Kobell. Ein Landschaftszeichner um 1800, Traunstein/Reutlingen 1997/1998, Nr. 35, Abb. S. 27. Nach einer Ausbildung zum Kaufmann in Mainz kehrte Franz Kobell 1762 in seine Geburtsstadt Mannheim zurück, wo er von seinem Bruder Ferdinand (1740-1799) auch künstlerisch unterstützt wurde. 1771-1778 bildete er sich zusätzlich an der Mannheimer Zeichnungsakademie aus. 1778 erhielt er von Kurfürst Karl Theodor von der Pfalz eine Pension, die ihm eine Reise nach Italien ermöglichte, wo er sich hauptsächlich in Rom aufhielt. Hier war er insbesondere dem Maler F. Müller (1749-1825), dem Dichter W. Heise und dem Bildhauer A. Trippel (1744-1793) freundschaftlich verbunden. Die Beschäftigung mit der Malerei N. Poussins (1594-1665) und Cl. Lorrains (1600-1682) hatte großen Einfluß auf sein späteres Werk; er wandte sich ganz und gar der Landschaftskunst zu. Bereits 1780 wurde er zum Hofmaler am 1778 nach München verlegten Mannheimer Hof ernannt. 1784 kehrte er aus Italien nah München zurück. Ab 1793 lebte er in Wohngemeinschaft mit seinem Bruder Ferdinand und seinem Neffen Wilhelm von Kobell (1766-1853) in München. Der zeichnerische Nachlaß des Künstlers wird auf mehr als 10.000 Blatt geschätzt.

Lewin planned to publish a comprehensive work on the insects of Great Britain, however, only one volume appeared due to the death of the author. "Lewin conceived the ambition to publish a comprehensive, illustrated work on 'The Insects of Great Britain'. In the event, his untimely death prevented the completion of all but the first volume on 'Papilios', which contains significantly more species of butterflies, together with their early stages, than works by previous authors: in present day terms, some 62 species plus three recognized forms. Lewin was also the first author to follow the strict order of families, and to use Linnaean names consistently." (M.A. Salmon. The Aurelian legacy p. 122).

        Cannoge, on the River Ganges

      published by Thomas Daniell, London - Aquatint by and after Thomas & William Daniell, coloured by hand. Image size: 17 3/4 x 23 3/8 inches; sheet size: 21 1/8 x 29 1/8 inches. A beautiful, atmospheric landscape of an ancient northern Indian capital Kannauj was an important centre under Harsha, the most powerful ruler of Northern India in the early 7th century, and it later became the capital of the Pratihara dynasty. Looking at the ruined tombs in the distance the artists lamented that '.It is impossible to look at these miserable remnants of the great city of Cannoge without the most melancholy sensations, and the strongest conviction of the instability of man's proudest works.' The Daniells' Oriental Scenery is considered to be the finest illustrated work on India. Thomas Daniell and his nephew William spent nine years in India making studies, sketches and drawings of the scenery, architecture, and antiquities that graced the countryside. They then devoted a further thirteen years to publishing their remarkably accurate aquatints. In Britain, the impact was explosive. A cult of Indian architecture, landscaping and interior decoration arose, with the Royal Pavilion at Brighton as its centerpiece. The Daniells gave the English public their first accurate look at the exotic sub-continent. Their great achievement still lies in their ability to blend the picturesque with the real, resulting in images that capture the European taste for the sublime landscape, while still remaining faithful to their subjects. The Daniells brought the romance of the English landscape to the antiquities of India and provided England with an accurate vision of this wondrous country. Consisting of one hundred and forty-four views, published in six parts, the work was issued in seven stages: three sets of twenty-four plates titled Oriental Scenery with title dates of 1795, 1797, and 1801; twelve plates titled Antiquities of India dated 1799; twenty-four plates titled Hindoo Excavations dated 1803; twenty-four plates titled Views in Hindoostan dated 1807; and twelve further plates of Antiquities of India published without a title page in 1808. All plates were engraved by the Daniells and all are taken from their drawings save the twenty-four plates of Hindoo Excavations , which are after drawings by James Wales.

        MEMOIRS OF THE YEAR TWO THOUSAND FIVE HUNDRED ... Translated from the French, by W. Hooper, M.A

      Philadelphia: Printed by Thomas Dobson,. 1795. rebound to style in full leather, spine ruled in gold and tooled in blind, reddish-brown title piece lettered in gold.. Text paper tanned, a very good, externally fine copy rebound to style. and sewn with new linen hinges, new sewn headbands, and new. endpapers. (#137388). First U.S. edition. A translation of L'AN DEUX MILLE QUATRE CENT QUARANTE, first published in Amsterdam in 1771. "This first utopia set in future time was one of the eighteenth century's most successful books. It was immediately banned in France, put on the Inquisition's list of forbidden books in 1773, and condemned in Madrid in 1778 as a blasphemous work whose distributors, if discovered, would be fined five hundred ducats and sentenced to six years in prison. The Year 2440 had eleven editions in French between 1771 and 1799, as well as two English translations and translations into Dutch, Italian, and German. Investigation of its printing history leads Everett Wilkie to conclude that 'there were 18,000 copies in print in three languages by the end of 1772 and 30,000 copies by the end of 1782, at which point it had spread thoroughly over Europe... 63,000 copies had been printed by Mercier's death' in 1814. The book was less successful across the Atlantic, but a 1795 Philadelphia edition was 'nevertheless, the first utopian novel published in North America.' George Washington and Thomas Jefferson owned copies of The Year 2440." - Alkon, Origins of Futuristic Fiction, p. 117. "... although the earliest specimens of futuristic fiction were in English, the glory of discovering the true potentialities of the genre belongs to the French -- to Sebastien Mercier who established the first satisfactory model of the new fiction... The utopian prophecy of L'AN 2440, the first influential story of the future in world literature, became one of the most widely read books in the last quarter of the eighteenth century. The translations into Dutch and German, the English and American editions, and the many imitations show how Mercier beguiled his readers in two continents with the vision of a dream come true." - Clarke, The Pattern of Expectation 1644-2001, p. 23.

        Armide Drame Heroique. Représenté pour la premiere Fois, par l'Academie Royale de Musique, le 23. Septembre 1777. Prix 24 livres. [Full score].

      Des Lauriers [without PN] [ca 1795], Paris - Third edition, second issue. Hopkinson 45A (c). Loewenberg 359. Lesure p. 237. Hirsch II, 268. RISM G2679. The first issue of the first edition was published by the Bureau du Journal de Musique in 1777; the second issue, by de Marchand in ca. 1778. Des Lauriers took over in about 1780, printing an edition from the original plates but with a newly-engraved title page. The publisher's catalogue is unique to the second issue of his Titelauflage.The libretto by Quinault after Tasso had been set by Lully in 1686. "What persuaded Gluck to choose Armide after Iphigenie en Aulide was probably not any aesthetic consideration; but rather a shrewd feeling that an appeal to French national pride, a sop to the old Lullyist school and a demonstration that he could rival Lully in his own province would none of them come amiss. in none of the scenes in Quinault's poem is it possible for Renaud to appear in a favorable light. Armide, on the other hand, is a bewitching figure. Proud, amorous, and intensely feminine, she is one of the most convincing of Gluck's heroines." Cooper: Gluck, pp. 213- 19. Folio. Full green vellum with former owner's name "M.lle de Fontenelle" gilt to upper, titling gilt to spine, edges red. 1f. (title), 1f. (publisher's catalogue), 279, [i] (blank) pp. Engraved. Binding worn, rubbed and bumped; spine slightly defective and chipped at head and foot; hinge reinforced with dark green cloth. Occasional light soiling; initial leaves including title and final leaves somewhat foxed; leaves from p. 149 to end somewhat browned. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Cheval-Pettore in the Tinnevelly District

      published by Thomas Daniell, London - Aquatint by and after Thomas & William Daniell, coloured by hand. Image size: 17 5/8 x 23 1/2 inches; sheet size: 21 1/8 x 29 1/8 inches. An impressive 18th century fortification in Souther India This fort, with its circular bastions made of sun-dried mud, was built by the Madurai Nayakas to withstand the incursions of the Nawabs of Arcot in the early 18th Century. It was set in a majestic landscape on the outskirts of the town of Srivilliputtur, dominated by the steep slopes of the Varushanad hills, but it has long ago disappeared. Srivilliputhur is in the Tamil Nadu district of southern India. The Daniells' Oriental Scenery is considered to be the finest illustrated work on India. Thomas Daniell and his nephew William spent nine years in India making studies, sketches and drawings of the scenery, architecture, and antiquities that graced the countryside. They then devoted a further thirteen years to publishing their remarkably accurate aquatints. In Britain, the impact was explosive. A cult of Indian architecture, landscaping and interior decoration arose, with the Royal Pavilion at Brighton as its centerpiece. The Daniells gave the English public their first accurate look at the exotic sub-continent. Their great achievement still lies in their ability to blend the picturesque with the real, resulting in images that capture the European taste for the sublime landscape, while still remaining faithful to their subjects. The Daniells brought the romance of the English landscape to the antiquities of India and provided England with an accurate vision of this wondrous country. Consisting of one hundred and forty-four views, published in six parts, the work was issued in seven stages: three sets of twenty-four plates titled Oriental Scenery with title dates of 1795, 1797, and 1801; twelve plates titled Antiquities of India dated 1799; twenty-four plates titled Hindoo Excavations dated 1803; twenty-four plates titled Views in Hindoostan dated 1807; and twelve further plates of Antiquities of India published without a title page in 1808. All plates were engraved by the Daniells and all are taken from their drawings save the twenty-four plates of Hindoo Excavations , which are after drawings by James Wales.

        BLACKGUARDIANA

      1795. [CAULFIELD, James]. BLACKGUARDIANA: or, a Dictionary of Rogues, Bawds, Pimps, Whores, Pickpockets, Shoplifters, Mail-robbers, Coiners, House- breakers, Murderers, Pirates, Gipsies, Mountebanks, &c. &c. Illustrated with eighteen Portraits of the most remarkable Professors in every Species of Villainy. Interspersed with many curious Anecdotes, Cant Terms, Flash Songs, &c. The whole intended to put Society on their guard against Depredators; and was picked up by an Inhabitant of St. James's, who was a Spectator of a grand Scuffle, on a Birth-day Night. Copied for the Inspection of the Curious; and the Original ready to be returned (on describing the Binding, etc.) to the Loser. [London?] Printed for, and sold by John Shepherd, at the Golden Farmer, Bagshot; Sir John Falstaff, at the Boar's-head, Finchley-Common; Sir Henry Morgan, at the Land- Pirates, Hounslow; [etc., etc. 1793? 1795?]. The imprint listing notorious criminals as publishers/booksellers is fun but of necessity false, because this is a pirated reprint of the first edition of Francis Grose's "Classical Dictionary of the Vulgar Tongue" printed at London, 1785. (The title is even used as a heading on two pages early in the text!) It is attributed to James Caulfield (1764-1826), a London author and printseller specializing in old English engravings and in portraits. He helped to feed the fashion for `grangerizing' or pasting extra illustrations into historical or topographical books, republishing many old plates and copying many old prints when the originals were too rare or too valuable to supply in quantity. Octavo, 21.5 x 13 cm, mostly unpaginated: [2], vii, [241] pp. Extra-illustrated, with a total of 41 prints bound- or tipped- in, many published by Caulfield and dated 1793 or 1794, plus one drawing. The prints show scoundrels of both sexes, some more grotesque than others. The composition of the wash drawing is the same as "The Bagpiper," an oil painting by David Teniers the Younger in the Louvre, only reduced in size. "Original sketch by Teniers?" is written tentatively in pencil beneath the drawing but, perhaps, it is a faithful copy. The text is arranged alphabetically as one would expect in a dictionary, but with some surprising entries. For instance, there is a series of mostly crim

John Jay was the first Chief Justice of the Supreme Court from October 19, 1789 to June 29, 1795, when he resigned to become Governor of New York, serving from July 1, 1795, to June 30, 1801. On December 18, 1800, President John Adams renominated the 55-year-old Governor as Chief Justice. He was confirmed by the Senate the next day, but he declined, citing his own poor health and the court's lack of ""the energy, weight and dignity which are essential to its affording due support to the national government."" Adams then nominated his second choice, John Marshall. Jay also declined renomination as Governor in 1801. He remained in good health, continued to farm, and stayed out of politics. John Jay died in 1829 at the age of 83."

        The Papilios of Great Britain, systematically arranged, accurately engraved, and painted from naure, with the Natual History of each species,

      London : J Johnson, 1795 A very good copy of this scarce title, with 46 superb hand coloured plates. William Lewin (1747-1795) intended this work to be the first volume of a series entitled 'The Insects of Great Britain'. However he died in 1795 after completing it. The first issue has a title page reflecting the series - this volume is a second issue as the publishers changed the title page to 'Papilios' to make this a volume on butterflies complete in itself. The text pages retain 'Vol I' at the bottom and the only other change is that this issue finishes 'The End', whereas the first issue has 'End of Vol I'. Bound in later half morocco and buckram binding with gilt decoration and titles to spine. Title pages and text are in both english and french. The plates are bound slightly out of order - with plate 6 after 7 and 8, and 28 before 24. The binding has a sunned spine and a small mark at the side of the spine. There is a little wear to edges.The endpapers have a little spotting and there is light brown toning to text pages which have untrimmed edges - text page 31 has a particularly ragged edge. The plates are spectacular in their detail - plate 7 has some spotting but the others are very clean and beautifully coloured. Text pp 6-97; index 2pp; index to latin names 1p. Please enquire if you would like to see more images or would like to discuss the condition of the book.

Entstanden wohl um 1795/1800. Hier handelt es sich um eine meisterhafte und bildmäßig durchgeführte Landschaftskomposition, in recht großem Format. Provenienz: vermutl. Sammlung C. Wiesböck, Wien, vgl. Lugt 2576, von diesem verso bezeichnet &#132;Franz Kobel gez.". Nach einer Ausbildung zum Kaufmann in Mainz kehrte Franz Kobell 1762 in seine Geburtsstadt Mannheim zurück, wo er von seinem Bruder Ferdinand (1740-1799) auch künstlerisch unterstützt wurde. 1771-1778 bildete er sich zusätzlich an der Mannheimer Zeichnungsakademie aus. 1778 erhielt er von Kurfürst Karl Theodor von der Pfalz eine Pension, die ihm eine Reise nach Italien ermöglichte, wo er sich hauptsächlich in Rom aufhielt. Hier war er insbesondere dem Maler F. Müller (1749-1825), dem Dichter W. Heise und dem Bildhauer A. Trippel (1744-1793) freundschaftlich verbunden. Die Beschäftigung mit der Malerei N. Poussins (1594-1665) und Cl. Lorrains (1600-1682) hatte großen Einfluß auf sein späteres Werk; er wandte sich ganz und gar der Landschaftskunst zu. Bereits 1780 wurde er zum Hofmaler am 1778 nach München verlegten Mannheimer Hof ernannt. 1784 kehrte er aus Italien nah München zurück. Ab 1793 lebte er in Wohngemeinschaft mit seinem Bruder Ferdinand und seinem Neffen Wilhelm von Kobell (1766-1853) in München. Der zeichnerische Nachlaß des Künstlers wird auf mehr als 10.000 Blatt geschätzt.

        An Address to bankers, Merchants, Tradesmen, &c. Intended as an Introduction to a new system of Book-Keeping, in which it is impossible for an Error of the most trifling amount to be passed unnoticed; and that is calculated effectually to prevent the Evils attendant on the present Methods by Single and Double Entry

      London: Printed by H. Fry, and sold by W. Richardson, and T. Longman; also by R. Edwards, Bristol, and all other Booksellers in Town and Country,, 1795. Duodecimo in 6s (143 x 86 mm), pp. 33. Stab sewn as issued. Housed in a black cloth flat back box. Complete with the final blank leaf. Pen trial to first leaf, contemporary ownership inscription to final blank leaves. Closed tear to penultimate leaf just entering text but without loss. Upper outer corner of final blank leaf torn away; a very good copy. An unrecorded issue of the prospectus for E. T. Jones's work on book-keeping, one of three printings in 1795, the other two printed in Bristol, which is where Jones practised as an accountant. This Address, the half-title to which reads "Twenty Minutes useful Consideration for the Man of Business", is actually a lengthy prospectus for a longer work on book-keeping which Jones planned for the following year; this duly appeared as Jones's English system of book-keeping by single and double entry, for which he was able to attract more than 4000 subscribers. Jones patented a hybrid system that attempted to combine the simplicity of single entry book-keeping with the arithmetic checks on accuracy provided by the double-entry system. His claim that the system was infallible was contested however, and he was the object of several attacks by contemporary proponents of the Italian system. Although his system was never adopted, his 1796 work was undoubtedly the first English work on accounting to achieve international renown; it was immediately republished in America, and translated into German, Dutch, Danish, French, Italian and Russian. Jones made important contributions to book-keeping, advocating the use of tabular account books, subsidiary ledgers, control accounts, and other devices designed to save labour and to adapt Pacioli's fifteenth-century Italian system to the demands of the nineteenth century.

A. von Stiernman's collection which was inherited by Celsius through marriage. This is one of the more important book collections which has been sold at auction in Sweden, although Celsius already had donated significant parts of his library to various public institutions. His valuable collection of manuscripts was for example given to Uppsala University Library. Olof Celsius (1716-94) was a versatile and talented man who after studies at Uppsala University first became assistant professor in literary history. He later worked at the university library and eventually became professor of history in Uppsala. He was ordained in 1751 after which he began a career within the Church. In 1777 he was appointed to the bishopric of Lund in the south of Sweden. Celsius was also active as a politician in the Swedish parliament and was considered one of the foremost speakers of his time. He was one of the first 18 members of the Swedish Academy in 1786 and published a large number of historical works, speeches and psalms. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
