Lamarck, Jean Baptiste
1796. Lamarck, Jean Baptiste (1744-1829). Autograph receipt signed. 1 sheet. Paris, "19 thermidor, l'an quatre de la république" [6 August 1796]. 250 x 194 mm. Stamp (possibly that of a notary) on verso. Traces of former mounting, but fine otherwise. Rare signed document by Lamarck, best known as an early evolutionary theorist, and particularly for his belief that an animal's environment could stimulate it to acquire certain physical characteristics (such as a neck made long by stretching it to eat from trees) that would then be passed on to subsequent generations. Lamarck here acknowledges receipt of 240 livres in cash for his work on the Encyclopédie methodique: Je reconnois avoir reçu du Citoyen Agasse la somme de deux cent quarante livres en numeraires, à compte de mes travaux pour l'encyclopedie, à Paris ce dix-neuf thermidor, l'an quatre de la République. Lamarck. The Encyclopédie methodique, a greatly expanded and reorganized version of Diderot and d'Alembert's Encyclopédie, was published by Charles Joseph Panckouke (1736-98) and his heirs between 1781 and 1832. Lamarck's contribution to the Encyclopédie consisted of vols. 1-3 and half of vol. 4 of the 8-volume Dictionnaire de botanique (1783-95), along with the 3-volume Illustration des genres (1791-1800).

A Paris, chez Durand et Neveu, 1787 et chez Nyon 1796.?. Neuf volumes in-4, 5 frontispices d'après Marillier et Bornet, 10 bandeaux gravés, 46 planches dont 2 grandes cartes repliées. Veau jaspé, dos à nerfs et fleuronnés, pièces de titre et de tomaison vertes, tranches rouges. Reliure de l?époque. Bon exemplaire. (Quelques discrètes restaurations à la reliure. restauration dans l?angle supérieur de 8 feuillets du tome I, mouillure claire à la fin du volume II.) ?Fils d'un pasteur des Cévennes, physiocrate et franc-maçon, Antoine Court de Gébelin (1725-1784) fut sans doute l'un des grands érudits de son temps. Les neuf volumes du monde primitif parurent successivement entre 1773 et 1784. L'ouvrage de Court de Gébelin, où se lit l'influence du président De Brosse et celle de Condillac, vise à découvrir l'origine d'une langue primitive composée d'un certain nombre de sons naturels communs à tous les peuples. La filiation des langues ainsi que les principes des écritures hiéroglyphiques et alphabétiques permettent l'explication des mystères allégoriques de l'Antiquité. Le premier volume qui renferme le plan général de l'ouvrage est consacré aux « allégories orientales » et contient l'histoire de Saturne et d'Hercule. Le second volume forme une « grammaire universelle et comparative » et le troisième une « histoire naturelle de la Parole ». Le volume 4 est consacré à l' « histoire du calendrier ». Les volumes 5, 6, 7 et 9 sont des dictionnaires étymologiques des langues grecque, latine et française. Le huitième volume est consacré au blason, aux monnaies et au jeux.

SMITH, Adam,

Neue, prächtige Halblederbände mit geprägtem Rückentitelschild. Erste Garvesche Ausgabe (insgesamt 2. deutsche Ausgabe des Smith'schen Werkes ins Deutsche!), nach der maßgeblichen vierten englischen Originalausgabe. - Eines der klassischen Gründungswerke der modernen Nationalökonomie, das zuerst 1776 erschien und sofort seinen Siegeszug in der europäischen Rezeption antrat. Es ist eines jener Schlüsselwerke der Wissenschaft, die über ihr eigenes Fachgebiet weit hinausgreifen und vom liberalen Bürgertum begierig rezipiert wurden. Smith's (1723-1790) "grosser Fortschritt . besteht darin, daß er sich von der Behauptung der Physiokraten über die mehrwertbildende Kraft der Natur freimacht und stattdessen die allgemein gesellschaftliche Arbeit, unabhängig von ihrer besonderen Form, als die einzige Quelle des Wertes anerkennt" (Bräuer 109). "Its remarkable success meant that it effectively defined the scope and content of political economy for later generations and was widely cited as an authority in favour of free market, . but is much more than the unsubtle apologia for private enterprise that it has been made to seem, allowing as it does an important regulating function to government" (Blaug 791). Die Garvesche Ausgabe wurde wegen ihrer Güte 1814 in Wien bei B. P. Bauer nachgedruckt. Laut Wilhelm Roscher war die Garve-Edition die erste gute Übersetzung des Werkes von Adam Smith (1723-90) in die deutsche Sprache! Garve … [Click Below for Full Description]

CAPTAIN JAMES COOK
LAUSANNE, SWITZERLAND: 1796. Old and probably contemporary marbleized leather covers with the usual scoff marks and dings, worn spots, superficial seam cracks, and ripples to leather spines and bent downward pointed corners, as well as some noted minor pitting on some volume's side panels. However, the spines have wonderful flourishes of ornate gilding and maroon background for the book title and with volume #s encircled in gilding. Interior integrity is exceptional for age, tight bindings w/o separation found with only a few pages dog-eared in v6 and fewer in limited instances within other volumes; otherwise even light toning and some sporadic light water staining within; nearly clean throughout. A very solid set and quite rare! VERY RARE BOOKS IN 6V! 1ST SWISS EDITION - PLEASE SEE CONDITION DESCRIPTION AND PHOTOS FOR DETAILS. Please make immediate PayPal payment.

"Entreprise de démolition systématique des codes civils et religieux de l'Europe du XVIIIe s., le 'Supplément au voyage de Bougainville' est une machine de guerre dirigée contre des législations absurdes et contradictoires. Produits de l'alliance funeste du sabre et du goupillon, celles-ci valorisent des besoins factices et des vertus chimériques qui dénaturent l'individu. Ce réquisitoire véhément s'articule avec un rêve tahitien qui s'effrite au fil d'un dialogue polymorphe" (M. Mat, 'Diderot et son temps', n° 144).

Carlo LASINIO (Treviso 1759 - Pisa 1838)
1796. "Dalla descrizione di Daniela Ferrari in ""Mantova nelle stampe"": La carta presenta una visuale molto vasta e al tempo steso minuziosa e dettagliata. Illustra le fasi dell'assedio francese:in primo piano il generale Bonaparte riceve i parlamentari austriaci, compaiono poi le retroguardie e gli schieramenti delle truppe. Sullo sfondo è raffigurata la città sottoposta ai cannoneggiamneti delle batterie francesi, disposte su zatteroni galleggianti e si vedono i borghi di S. Giorgio e di Porto con i rispettivi ponti; particolare curioso è il pallone aereostatico in alto a destra che avrebbe dovuto essere innalzato dai Francesi per dirigere le operazioni belliche. L'opera deriva da un disegno dal vivo di Basilio Lasionio, inciso da Carlo Lasinio. Incisione in rame, in ottimo stato di conservazione. Molto rara." Copper engraving, in excellent condition. Very rare. Ferrari, Mantova nelle stampe, p. 129, 128; Arrigoni Bertarelli 1934, p. 128.

It had the most profound influence on the political thinking of the generation following its publication. It was, after all, the first great emotional plea for the quality of all men in the state: others had argued the same cause theoretically but had themselves tolerated a very different government. Rousseau believed passionately in what he wrote, and when in 1789 a similar emotion was released on a national scale, the Contrat social came into its own as the bible of the revolutionaries in building their ideal state. Still in print, translated into every language in cheap editions and paperbacks, it remains a crucial document of egalitarian government' (PMM 207, describing the original edition of 1762).Dufour, 154; Sénelier, 719.

Some chapters deal with Colombia's history, also including an eyewitness account of the riots in Socorro and New-Grenada, while others give a geographical description of Colombia: its mountains, climate, seasons, forests, mining, rivers, indigenous animals and pets. Mollien also describes in depth the culture, customs, psychology and physiology of the Colombians. The islands of Jamaica, Curacao and Tenerife are also described.Browned with some occasional foxing. Binding worn along the extremities, front hinge cracked. Overall a good copy of a very rare Dutch translation of a journey through the Republic of Colombia.
