        DISTRICT OF PENNSYLVANIA, TO WIT: BE IT REMEMBERED, THAT.READING HOWELL, OF THE SAID DISTRICT, HATH DEPOSITED IN THIS OFFICE THE TITLE OF A MAP.TO WIT, "A MAP OF PENNSYLVANIA, & THE PARTS CONNECTED THEREWITH, RELATING TO THE ROADS AND INLAND NAVIGATION.

      [Philadelphia. 1795?]. - 19 1/2 x 27 1/2 inches. River route from Lake Erie to Philadelphia marked in contemporary color. On two sheets, joined at center. Older tape repair to verso; two tape repairs at top and bottom of center seam causing slight staining, primarily in blank areas. Small hole in neatline area of left top edge. Lightly but evenly toned. Still very good. Second state of the smaller version of Reading Howell's very important map of Pennsylvania. Howell's map was the first post-Revolutionary map of the entire state of Pennsylvania, and the first to show all the state's boundaries. "This is the best map of Pennsylvania to appear in the 18th century, and the first to show its exact boundaries" - Wheat & Brun. Howell was a landowner and a surveyor, and he used his own work, along with the personal surveys of others to create his map. This condensed version of Howell's map, first published the same year as the larger version, shows the state in its entirety with towns, roads, and topographical features. New canals are also shown, including one beginning at the mouth of Conewago canal on the Susquehanna River, and another beginning on the Delaware River just north of Pennsylvania and going to Norris Town. In this second state, the counties are outlined and identified. The larger version of the map is extremely rare and almost unobtainable. A foundational Pennsylvania map. WHEAT & BRUN 443.

        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."

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

      Paris Des Lauriers [without PN] [ca. 1795]. 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.. 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.

      [Np, but France. ca. 1795]. - [433]pp. Folio. Late 19th-century black half morocco and cloth, spine gilt. Corners rubbed. Front inner hinge cracked. Minor soiling, some contemporary ink staining. Very good. Manuscript translation, in French, of this classic history of the conquest of Mexico, first published in Madrid in 1684. Though undated, it is written on paper watermarked 1793 in a neat and uniform hand. A French translation had appeared as early as 1691, but this appears to be a different translation. The HISTORIA DE LA CONQUISTA DE MEXICO was reprinted in multiple editions in every European language and was popular on both sides of the Atlantic. The author was a noted Spanish dramatist and historian. His work includes theatre, poetry, and prose, and he has been considered one of the last great writers of Spanish baroque literature. This work remained the most important European source on Latin American history up through the first part of the 19th century.

The first German translation of 1770 was made from the third edition of 1767.

        A Voyage round the World, in the Gorgon Man of War: Captain John Parker. Performed and written by his widow; for the advantage of a numerous family

      London: Debrett, 1795. In fine condition in a good binding by Morell.. Octavo, pp. xxxii, 150;with the final leaf of advertisements, in handsome half tan morocco, spine gilt-decorated in compartments by Morell, with the bookplate of Henry L. White of Belltrees and his shelfmark. A fine copy of the first edition and now quite rare; one of the earliest unofficial eye-witness accounts of Australia, and the very first account of the colony by a woman. Leaving two children back in England, Mary Ann Parker arrived in Sydney just three years after the First Fleet, having made the long and dangerous sea voyage by choice. Her narrative makes clear that she relished the adventure, delighting in discovering new sights and meeting new people.Her husband, John Parker was the captain of the Gorgon, an eagerly awaited ship in the colony, sent out with stores following the loss of the store-ship Guardian, whose wreck the voyagers saw at Table Bay. She also carried Governor King back to Norfolk Island, as well as the Chaplain of the New South Wales Corps, Baines the surveyor and Burton the botanist.Mary Ann Parker's description of life in the colony is of great interest, and includes a long account of Port Jackson, ships in the harbour, disease on the transports, a discussion of "the propriety of establishing a whale-fishery on the coast of New Holland", breakfast with Phillip aboard the Gorgon, shore visits at Sydney Cove and Botany Bay with descriptions of flora and fauna, and an excellent chapter on the Aborigines including a description of a meeting with Bennelong after Mrs. Parker's return to London.Although little is known of her earlier life Mary Ann had already travelled through France, Italy and Spain and knew sufficient Spanish to be able to act as translator when the Gorgon called at Teneriffe. Elizabeth Macarthur, on meeting Mary Ann on a visit to Rose Hill, described her as "a very amiable, intelligent woman".The Gorgon sailed from Port Jackson at the end of 1791, taking back the First Fleet marines who had been waiting to be repatriated. At Cape Town they were joined by Captain Edward Edwards and survivors from the wreck of the Pandora, including the Bounty mutineers being taken back for trial.Captain John Parker's untimely death in 1794 spurred the young widow to write and publish her narrative which not only tells her personal and lively account, but draws on her husbands' logs, letters and reports to create a factual and remarkably fresh record of this important voyage.

        A translation of the New Testament ... the second edition, with improvements

      London: Pr. by A. Hamilton for George Kearsley 2 vols. 8vo (21.3 cm, 8.4"). I: [4], viii, 410, [2] pp. II: [4], 472 pp.. 1795 Wakefield first published a volume of "those parts only of the New Testament which are wrongly translated in our common version" before having this complete Testament printed in 1791; this is the second edition, revised and corrected, of the entire translation. A theological and political controversialist, Wakefield adopted Unitarian principles, although the Cambridge History of the Bible says his New Testament is "in no sense sectarian." Each volume closes with extensive Notes; the last leaf of vol. I offers a list of other works by this author for sale from the same publisher; and the last page of the second volume has an affixed errata slip. The notes are quite direct and personal, with Wakefield remarking, e.g., on what effect or variety of accuracy he is trying to achieve; what the knot of difficulty at a particular point actually is, for the translator; and whose "excellent" reading he is following (and how the chosen version from the Coptic differs from the Syriac or AEthiopic). He expresses surprise that an "obvious construction" has "escaped the critics" so "remarkabl[y]" long as it has, and in another case confesses that he is "quite at a loss" as to how one clause is supposed to connect with another — definitely, he's a scholar who yet => lives in his pages. Provenance: Armorial bookplates of Justinian Minoch laid in. Recent quarter black morocco and stone pattern marbled paper?-covered sides, leather edges tooled in blind; spines with gilt-stamped title, volume number, place/date, and compartment decorations. Bookplates laid in as above. Half-titles and title-pages with handsome old institutional pressure-stamp; each first text page with inked numeral. Intermittent light foxing, pages otherwise clean. An engaging pair of books in all respects.

        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, issued as a pamphlet, foreword dated 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 (for a similar copy though ours without the Colophon) and page 125, No.328.

        Autograph Letter, signed, to his step-son, JOSEPH TALLCOT ("Beloved Son Joseph Tallcot"), in "Nine Partners near the Brick Meetinghouse" (Hudson, New York), on the ravages of the epidemic of yellow fever in New York City

      New York 1795 - 3 pages on single bifolium, in ink; address on final page. Folio. "O the Necessity of a Preparation for Death ?". In the summer of 1795, a terrible epidemic of yellow fever broke out in New York City. Even as public officials tried to hide the reality of the epidemic, the fever quickly spread throughout the city, and hundreds died. LOT TRIPP, it appears, was a druggist, medical practitioner, apothecary, and devout Quaker in New York City when the disease struck; and in this harrowing letter to his stepson, JOSEPH TALLCOT (1768-) Tripp recounts the story in graphic detail:"? About maybe two months past a Burning Bilious or Yellow fever made its appearance in this City. The health officer Dr. Malachi Treat & a young man by name Payne, one who examined the Unloading of vessels, were taken & died of it. It was then supposed to be imported by some vessels from the West Indies, but no confirmation of it, as it soon made its appearance in many houses in Water Street & Dover Street - between Peck & New Ships, & numbers died ? it soon after spread in various Parts of the Town, in Cherry, Rosevelt, Chesnut, James, Katherine & Oliver Streets, & abundantly in a little Street near the shipyards. There were a great number of New Irish settlers crowded in that part of the Town, & the Scene has been Truly Melancholy & awful. Many Poor Creatures hurried with great Precipitation, out of time in all the horrors & confusions of body & mind that can be expressed & many appeared Very Stupid, & some thinking themselves almost well when death ensued in a few moments, many have suffered & I believe many have died for want of Proper Nourishment & Attendance. Some have crept away in __ (?) places & Died alone, Abundance of the Inhabitants moved out & left their house, with a servant or 2 & some others who have done abundance in searching the town Looking up the distressed & administering to their comfort, amongst which number Richardson Underhill has been a large Sharer. Isaac Proctor, Ejnos Alby, Danniel Larrabee, Father Stratton, Daniel Nawthurst, David Johnson, Edmund Prior & Robert Browne & one Penny a Barber has done abundance. Some of the above have spent a Pretty deal of their interest to relieve the Needy ?"By the time Tripp was writing this, over 700 people had died in the terrified city since the outbreak, and there follows in Tripp's account a poignant list of the names of victims - including members of his own family and close friends, including, finally, himself. Tripp closes with this admonition to Tallcot:"O the Necessity of a Preparation for Death whilst in a state of Health & soundness of Body & Mind. May that be each of our engagements, so that we may be ready when called, let it be at What Watch of the night it may ?"Evidently Tripp was an apothecary from the Quaker city of Hudson, New York, as he advertised himself in in the local paper (Hudson Gazette) of 1785 "Lot Tripp, Drugs and Medicines". Tripp was the author of a small pamphlet entitled DIRECTIONS FOR MARINERS ON VOYAGES IN HOT AND COLD CLIMATES. HOW TO TREAT THE SICK, AND TO USE THE MEDICINE CONTAINED IN THE CHEST, which by 1836 went through 6 printings. Joseph Tallcot (1768-1853) was born near Nine Partners, N.Y., the son of Quakers Gaius Tallcot and Sarah Causeten Tallcot. He was educated at Nine Partners School and later entered into the drug business with his father. Tallcot established a school which later became the Friends School at Nine Partners, and he himself was the author of THE FRIENDLY VISITANT and THE CHILD'S COMPANION. In MEMOIRS OF JOSEPH TALLCOT, an obituary of Tripp is quoted:"Died on Monday last, in the 54th year of his age, Doctor Lot Tripp, a member of the respectable society of Friends, and an ornament to his profession and to humanity. His practice was confined principally to the poor and friendless, to whom he administered relief without any other reward than that which arises from the luxury of doing good.".

        Figures des Contes de la Fontaine

      1795. FRAGONARD, Jean-Honoré. Figures des Contes de la Fontaine. With an engraved title-page vignette by Choffard and 20 engraved plates after original drawings by Fragonard. Large 4to., 327 x 264 mm, bound by Pagnant in nineteenth-century speckled French calf, gilt outer border, spine gilt-tooled, t.e.g., others uncut, original publisher's blue wrappers bound in. Paris: Didot, 1795. |~||~||~||~| First Issue of Fragonard's graphic masterpiece, one of 150 copies printed on papier vélin with all the plates before letters -- this is the complete suite of engravings for the only illustrated book by Fragonard, the master of the French Rococo. Sixteen of the twenty plates were executed after Fragonard's original drawings. These early proofs surpass the later impressions in capturing the vivacity and inventiveness of the original sketches. This is the very fine Rahir copy, preserved with the exceedingly rare printed blue publisher's wrappers which offer a highly detailed publication history of these important plates, and which are reprinted in full by Cohen-De Ricci. Fragonard's illustrations to the Contes of La Fontaine have been praised repeatedly for their painterly quality, for which the details of costume, architecture and decoration are rendered with remarkable care and precision. The immediacy and inspired sense of design displays his true artistic genius. As Gordon Ray notes, each of these illustrations "is in effect a small painting." Fragonard began as early as the mid 1760's with a series of 42 black-chalk sketches. Then followed a second series of 57 drawings which were counter-proofs of the black-chalk set reworked in pen, brush, brown ink and wash. It was not until 1789, however, that Didot announced his intention to issue a lavish illustrated edition of the Contes and to commission Fragonard to provide the engraved plates. The French Revolution was not, however, a propitious time for a deluxe, Rococo enterprise. Originally Didot intended this edition of La Fontaine to contain 80 engravings in four volumes; sadly, the work failed to obtain a sufficient number of subscribers, and Fragonard became disheartened with the project. When Les Contes was finally issued it was illustrated with only twenty plates. PROVENANCE: Edouard Rahir with his ex-libris; Jürg Stucker with his ex-libris. Rahir, Bibliotheque lot 820 (this copy).

      London, printed by C. Lowndes for H. D. Sold by Symonds, No. 20 Paternoster Row, no date, circa 1795.A very early edition, issued as a pamphlet, foreword dated 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.

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.

        "The more there are, the more we will kill" writes the Commander in Chief of Napoleon's famed Army of Sambre-et-Meuse as he prepares for battle

      Coblence [Germany], August 5, 1795. 8.25" x 13.5". "Autograph Letter Signed ""Jourdan,"" as Commander in Chief of the Army of Sambre-et-Meuse, 1 page, 8.25"" x 13.5"". Coblence [Germany], 18 Thermidor an 3 (August 5, 1795). To General Kleber. In French, partial translation below. Minor flaws. Fine condition.In part, ""The report of the Assistant to Adjutant General Ney had surprised and worried me. Your letter of the 17th [August 4th] reassures me ... I decided to attempt the passage. I am able, I'm waiting for the artillery and the moment when the bridge of Holland will occur. Because I want it to be the same day as you. If the Rhine does not get lower soon ... Finally it is the case to say: 'the more there are the more we will kill ...'"" [""plus il y en plus nous en tuerour""]Adjutant General Michel Ney (1769-1815) had been transferred to the Army of Sambre et Meuse in June 1794. Ney was promoted to Général de Brigade in August 1796, and commanded cavalry on the German fronts. Ney was one of Napoleon's original 18 Marshals of the Empire.In 1795, the Sambre-et-Meuse fought on the middle Rhine. On June 7, 1795,the Army of Jean-Baptise Jourdan (1762-1833) concluded the long but successful Siege of Luxembourg. Operations east of the Rhine were less successful that year, with the French capturing, then losing Mannheim. On October 13, 1795, the recipient of this letter, General Jean Baptiste Kleber (1753-1800), fought a brilliant rearguard action at the bridge of Neuwied and in the offensive campaign of 1796, he served as Jourdan's most active and successful lieutenant."

Tabellen (teils doppelseitig), 8 gefalt. gestoch. Karten (l teilkolor.) und 3 Kupfertafeln. Kleisterpapier-Pappbde d. Z. (berieben, Kanten etwas bestoßen) mit handschriftl. Rückenschild und Signaturmarken.

      Tübingen, J. G. Cotta, 1795-1809.. . Umfangreiche, geschlossene Folge, darin die komplette Reihe der von Posselt seit Beginn bis zu seinem Freitod 1804 herausgegebenen Zeitschrift; so von größter Seltenheit. Die Zeitschrift bildete das Gegenstück zu Archenholz' norddeutscher 'Minerva'. "Unter den deutschen Journalisten, die der Revolution ihre Sympathien bewahrten, ragte E. L. Posselt hervor. Erfüllt von dem Gedanken des antiken Staatsbürgertums, hatte er die Französische Revolution mit wärmster Teilnahme begrüßt. Ein Bewunderer der Girondisten, durch den von ihm verabscheuten Terrorismus am Glauben an das Evangelium der Ideen von 1789 nicht erschüttert, begann er ... mit der Herausgabe einer Monatsschrift, der 'Europäischen Annalen'" (zit. nach A. Stern). Die Zeitschrift genoss damals einen hervorragenden Ruf und wurde nach Lichtenberg von der englischen Monatsschrift 'The Monthly Magazine' zum besten politischen Journal des Jahres gewählt. Posselt verbürgt sich in seiner Ankündigung für "eine vollständige, unpartheyische, bescheiden freimüthige Darstellung , ein treues historisches Gemählde von Europa, so wie jedesmal dessen neueste Gestalt ist." Seine 'Annalen' sind ein faszinierender Spiegel ihrer Zeit. Sie berichten z. B. über Carnots Feldzug, Frankreichs Verfassungen, den Baseler Frieden, Washingtons Rücktritt als Präsident, den englisch-holländischen Krieg, Frankreichs Seekrieg, über die geheime Convention zwischen dem König von Preußen und der fränkischen Republik, die Teilung Polens, über Napoleons Feldzüge in Syrien und Ägypten, Heft 2 von 1800 mit einem ausführlichen 'Chronologischen Register der fränkischen Revolution', Vergleich der Schulden Frankeichs und Großbritanniens, Pitt und Englands Finanzen, Englands Handel, die britische Flotte unter Nelson, Kongress zu Rastadt, geheime Artikel zum Traktat von Campo Formio, über amerikanische Staatspapiere, Traktat zwischen der fränkischen und helvetischen Republik, 1803 mit 14 beidseitig bedruckten statistischen Tafeln über Gebietsverluste und -gewinne der europäischen Staaten, über die Einführung des Code Napoleon, 'Ueber die Bank von Frankreich', über Archenholz' 'Elegie am Grabe des preußischen Staates' u.v.a.m. Nach Posselts Tod erschien die Zeitschrift noch bis 1820 und erlebte unter dem Titel 'Allgemeine politische Annalen' mit den Redakteuren Heinrich Heine und Friedr. Ludwig Lindner noch einen späteren, kurzen Aufschwung. - Vom Jahrgang 1809 ist nur die erste Hälfte, die Hefte 1-6 vorhanden. Mit den Orig.-Vorderumschlägen und zahlreichen oft mehrseitigen Verlagsankündigungen. Vorsätze und Umschläge gestempelt, teils durchschlagend, Vorsätze zusätzlich mit Signaturmarken. Sonst sehr gutes Exemplar. - Diesch 435. Kirchner 1737. Hocks/Schmidt 65. Goed. VI 309, 14. Fischer, Cotta, 139 und weitere 32 Nummern bis 1272.
