        Eigh. Brief in italienischer Sprache mit Empfehlungsformel und Unterschrift.

      Pavia 5 8 1796 - 2 1/4 Seiten, gr-8. - An G. Toscan, Bibliothekar des Naturhistorischen Museums in Paris und Übersetzer seiner 1792 erschienenen "Viaggi alle Due Sicilie". "Dottissimo Signore / Fino dell'anno scorso letto aveva in un Giornale Francese il Prospetto concernante la Traduzione, che voi e il Sigre. Duval vi proponevate di fare del mio Viaggio alle due Sicilie. Dopo qualche tempo vidi in altro Giornale uno squarcio di detta Traduzione, il quale riferiva in parte le cose da me osservate su'l Etna. Io volevo per lettere ringraziarvi dell'opere che voi, ed il chiarissimo vostro Collega fate il mio libro; ma mi è stato conteso per la volta comunicazione tra l'Italia e la Francia. . esser vero che a Venezia si fa una ristampa dei miei Viaggi (e credo ne stiano a quest'ora esuti quattro volumi) ma senza la più picciola aggiunta, la più piccola correzione. Non è già che non si potettero fare aggiunte ed amendazioni al mio libro, troppo conoscendone io i difetti, ma per far ciò convenientemente, non vi era mezzo migliore e più sicuro che rivisitare i Pezzi vulcanizzati da me prime veduti; ma le circostanze mie non me lo hanno permesso. . Passo ora alla vostra traduzione. Non posso esprimervi con parole quanto e poi quanto mi sia piaciuta. . Che fedeltà, che chiarezza, che previsione, che eleganza di stile! . Debbo finalmente esser riconoscente al celeberrime Sig.re Faujas per le sensate sue annotazioni, nè lascio in questo medesimo ordinario di mostrare gli per lettere la mia gratitudine .". - Schrift teilweise durchschlagend, minimale Papierschäden, Siegelausriss auf dem Adressblatt unterlegt. Ausführlicher Brief über eines der Hauptwerke Spallanzanis, der als bedeutender Physiologe und Mitbegründer der modernen Vulkanologie und Meteorologie gilt. E. T. A. Hoffmann war von seinen Forschungen fasziniert und ließ ihn unter der Schreibweise "Spalanzani" mehrmals in seinen Schriften auftreten; von dort wurde er als Bühnenfigur in Jacques Offenbachs phantastische Oper "Hoffmanns Erzählungen" übernommen. Der Diplomat, Historiker und Schriftsteller Amaury Duval (1760-1838) wirkte an Toscans Übersetzung mit, der Geologe Barthélemy Faujas de Saint-Fond (1741-1819) steuerte Anmerkungen bei. - Selten.

        SCHEDULE of Papers. [41 papers]. [Collection of Printed Internal Communications in the Royal Navy, October 1796 - January 1797, Pertaining to the French Expedition to Ireland]. (No title page, apparently as issued; completed from internal information).

      N.p., British Admiralty. 1796 -1797.. Soft cover. 4to, 29cm, un-paginated, c.55pp., including several folding tables, in the original plain blue wraps, frayed along the spine, wraps a bit wrinkled, very good condition, very rare. French intended to land a large expeditionary force in Ireland during the winter of 1796 1797 which would join with the United Irishmen and drive the British out of Ireland. These documents concern the state and condition of His Majesty's ships, and orders and letters concerning their sailing and deployment. This is all in reaction to the French expedition to Ireland, which was monitored by the British Fleet under Colpoys. Despite all the bustle reported in these communications, the British fleet was ineffective and Colpoys was replaced. Fortunately for the British, though not so fortunate for Irish patriots, the weather accomplished what the Royal Navy could not, sending the French fleet home in tatters. This is a fascinating document from the Napoleonic Wars, pertaining to one of the more colorful incidents of that troubled period. - With the bookplate of well known collector and bibliographer, Mario Witt. .

        "Schweizerlieder mit Melodien" - 1796 Swiss Songbook with Inscription to Jenny Lind

      Zurich: David Bürkli, 1796. Fourth Edition. Used; Like New/Used; Like New. Schweizerlieder mit Melodieen. Des ersten Theils vermehrte vierte Auflage. An original collection of Swiss songs mostly for three voices and continuo, bearing an inscription on the title page supposedly from Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy to Jenny Lind. The inscription and signature are almost certainly spurious, but appear to date from the 19th century and share some similarities with Mendelssohn's hand, though here rather more shaky and uncertain than is seen in authentic examples. The volume contains settings of texts by Johann Kaspar Lavater, originally for voice and continuo, arranged by Johann Heinrich Egli for 1-4 voices and continuo, including 6 new settings by Egli, 2 to texts of Lavater and 4 to texts of F. von Stolberg. Cf. Refardt, E. Historisch-Biographisches Musikerlexikon der Schweiz. 88 pp. Printed in single-impression music type throughout, with an engraving to the cover. Disbound; title page detached, with heavy wear and toning; light edge wear and toning throughout but internally fine, overall very good. 10.5 x 8.5 inches (27 x 22 cm). The music is rare, with WorldCat recording only 8 copies outside Switzerland.

        TO THE FREEMEN OF THE STATE OF RHODE-ISLAND. IT HAVING BEEN REPRESENTED THAT MR. WILLIAM GREENE, AS ONE OF THE STATE'S COMMITTEE, CONDUCTED IMPROPERLY, I THINK IT A DUTY TO GIVE A TRUE STATE OF THAT BUSINESS IN RESPECT TO HIM..

      Providence: Printed by D. Wheeler, 1796. Broadside, 9-1/8" x 11-1/2". Old fold lines, light wear and soil. Else Very Good, with irregular bottom edge. This unrecorded broadside expresses the public outrage over a State Committee's determination of the various rates at which Rhode Island towns would be taxed. Committeeman Greene was vilified for voting to increase taxes for certain towns. Dorrance defends Greene's honor and integrity, although Greene's views "differed very much from myself." Dorrance signs his name in type at the bottom, with the printed place and date: "Providence, August 26, 1796." John Dorrance [c.1747-1813], a native of Providence, graduated from Brown University in 1774. He was a Justice of the Court of Common Pleas; was involved with the Washington Insurance Company and a director of the Exchange Bank. Governor Fenner once accused Dorrance of having sold the body of a stranger who had committed suicide in exchange for a beaver skin hat. Fenner used the charge to squash Dorrance's run for a seat in the General Assembly in 1801; Dorrance later sued for slander. Not in Evans, Shipton & Mooney, Bristol, NAIP, ESTC, Alden, or [as of March 2017] on the online sites of OCLC, Library of Congress, AAS, Brown University, Yale, Harvard.

Edizione originale di una delle più significative trattazioni di botanica pubblicate in Italia nel Settecento. Ad esempio, nel tomo III, vi si trova la spiegazione del Cocculus Indicus Officinarum i cui si dice che "Nasce quest’albero nell’India orientale tralle rupi, e sassi delle spiagge marittime, sotto l’ombra di alberi eccelsi, e particolarmente nel Ceilan, nel Malabar, nell’Amboina e nella Giava. Il frutto è una bacca, che rinchiude una noce reniforme, rugosa, composta di buccia fragile, e midolla, o nocciolo bianco. Sotto questa forma si incontra nelle officine. Colle bacche gl’Indiani prendono i pesci buttando nell’acqua delle pillole, formate dalle bacche semimature acciaccate co’ granchi detti Bernardo l’eremita, che si trovano nelle chiocciole.

Nel 1770 si recò in Austria e in Germania e al rientro intraprese studi di Storia naturale; quindi insegnò botanica e Napoli. Diresse l’Orto botanico del Monastero di Monte Oliveto; fu iscritto alla Real Deputazione della Salute, e fu membro della nuova Real Società delle Scienze.

G.SELDEN-GOTH (1884 – 1975 Florenz), Komponistin, Pianistin, Musikschriftstellerin, Schülerin von BARTOK und BUSONI, Briefpartnerin von STEFAN ZWEIG bis zu dessen Tod. - „HEINSE versucht in diesem Roman sein Ideal eines moralisch autarken Menschen zu zeichnen, der seine Kräfte unter Beachtung der ihn umgebenden Verhältnisse stets zur Erlangung maximalen Genusses einsetzt. Der philosophisch-ästhetische Versuch, die Musik als Beispiel der gelungenen Synthese von Emotionalität und Kalkül zu stilisieren und so auch als Vorbild für das sozial-ethische Verhalten einzuführen, stellt eine originäre ‚Vorstellungsart‘ von Welt- und Ich-Verständnis eines zwischen Triebbeherrschung und geistiger Selbstbehauptung schwankenden Autors dar.“ (Frankhäuser u.a. Wilhelm Heinse, Mainz 2003, S.23). Der Roman war in mancher Beziehung einflussreich auf HÖLDERLINs Dichten. „Besonders wichtig war aber HEINSEs Musiktheorie für HÖLDERLIN, denn sie gestattete das aus der Rhetorik altbekannte Prinzip der ‚Abwechslung des Tons‘ aus dem Status der bloß gefühlsmäßigen Anmutung in eine systematische Darstellung zu überführen.“ (J.Kreuzer, Hölderlin-Handbuch, Stuttgart 2011, S.88). „HEINSEs erotischer Musikroman ., entstanden in den Wirren der ‚Mainzer Republik‘, beschwört im Fokus eines rheinischen Kleinstaats auffallend systematisch und durchreflektiert die Diskurse des europäischen Musiklebens kurz vor Ausbruch der französischen Revolution. . Gegen die aufgeklärte Entzauberung des Wissens und Empfindens führt HEINSE gezielt magische Wissensressourcen und ästhetische Erfahrungen in der Illusion des Wunderbaren und des musikalischen Ausdrucks ins Feld.“ (aus: W.Thormählen u.a. (Hrsg.). Musikalisches Denken im Labyrinth der Aufklärung. Wilhelm Heinses Musikroman Hildegard von Hohenthal, Würzburg 2015). „HEINSE übernahm für die Illustrierung . von seinem Freund SOEMMERING verfertigte Darstellungen der menschlichen Hör- und Stimmorgane, die dieser auch mit Anmerkungen versah, womit der Roman wohl der erste und einzige ist, der mit anatomischen Zeichnungen geschmückt wurde.“ (Frankhäuser S.232).

        Trattato di materia medica del Signor Guglielmo Cullen Professore di Medicina Pratica all'Univesità di Edemb.. Tradotto dall'idioma inglese nell'italiano e corredato di copiose note dal signor Conte Angelo Dalladecima.

      Napoli, Fratelli Marotta, 1796. Sei voll. in 8vo, pp XXXII, 357; 400; 363; 384; 254; 496 (quest'ultimo tomo è inclusivo di Indici), tagli a spruzzo, leg. in t. Perg. con titoli in oro su tassello. William Cullen (Hamilton, 15 aprile 1710 - Kirknewton, 5 febbraio 1790) è stato un medico, chimico e accademico scozzese, noto per i suoi metodi di insegnamento innovativi. Nel 1755, Cullen tornò a Edimburgo, dove ottenne successivamente la cattedra di "Istituzioni di medicina», la disciplina nella quale erano impartiti i fondamenti teorici dell'arte medica; ricoprì questo incarico fino a poco tempo prima della sua morte. Cullen creò una propria teoria: riteneva che la vita dipendesse dall'energia nervosa e che i muscoli fossero una continuazione dei nervi. Ideò inoltre una classificazione nosologica delle malattie. Un classico della materia medica ove sono ampiamente descritti i rimedi vegetali, chimici, minerali ecc. e le loro proprietà, i loro usi e le dosi. L'intero primo volume è dedicato alla storia della materia medica con un succinto ragguaglio dei principali scrittori di quella. Completo. Esemplare interessato da un po' di foxing, anche dovuto alla non eccelsa qualità della carta (più visibile alle carte bianche e ai frontespizi e solo lieve e sporadico alle pagine).

She supposed there might be seven or eight bags. Mrs Stafford said the negro Captain desired Stafford to bring them away from the wreck to his house. She went on board at Capt Readys, and Captain Ready said the sloop was coming to St Marys to bring the negroes things here. And some of the same bags, or the whole are now on board the sloop brought here. Has heard of some of the things being at Dilworths somd at Williams's.

        Camilla: or, a Picture of Youth

      T. Payne; T. Cadel & W. Daviesl, London 1796 - FIRST EDITION. A handsome set of five volumes, of the novel by the English satirical novelist, diarist and playwright. A traditional story about the traditional concern of a group of young people, Camilla Tyrold and her sisters and cousin, the work became very famous in the eighteenth century, and is still of much interest for today's reader. The plot involves a fascinating psychological study, and through the adventures of the various characters, their very different personalities and their quest for love, one is allowed into a world where fate and destiny are influenced, and perhaps even shaped, by character. Handsome 18th century fine leather binding with gilt trimming including dentelle along edges of boards. Rounded spine features red and green titleblocks, with five raised bands and elegant gilt filigree. Vibrant marbled pastedowns match dyed textblock edges. Volumes are in overall very good condition with well preserved leather covers and moderate toning and foxing inside. Boards show some foxing mostly on front, on first four volumes. Boards have light wear and age. Minimal shelfwear, with gently to moderately rubbed corners. Spine ends are firm, with rubbing. Binding is secure in all volumes.

        Spiele zur Uebung und Erholung des Körpers und Geistes Zweyte unveränderte Auflage

      Schnepfenthal, Buchhandlung der Erziehungsanstalt, 1796.. Mit 4 Kupfertafeln mit jeweils 4 Illustrationen. XVI, 492 S., 2 Bl. HLdr. d. Zt. Neuer Abdruck vom Oktober 1796 des erstmals im April 1796 erschienenen Werkes. - NDB VII, 351. HKJL III, Sp. 455-463. LKJL I, 514: "Das erste pädagogisch fundierte Spielbuch. Es wurde wegweisend für die pädagogische Spielliteratur, ist aber vorwiegend als Anregung für Eltern und Erzieher gedacht.". - Mit zahlreichen überlieferten Spielen, darunter neben Sportarten wie Handball, Federball und Golf auch Gesellschaftsspiele wie Schach, und "Spiele der Phantasie und des Witzes" wie Pantomime etc. Von besonderem Interesse die SS. 78-84: ``Ball mit Freystäten (oder das englische Base-ball)``. Tatsächlich enthält das vorliegende Werk die erste gedruckte Regelanleitung für Baseball, die überraschender Weise nicht in einem englischsprachigen Land, sondern in Deutschland erschienen ist! Siehe dazu auch ausführlich David Block`s Baseball Before We Knew It (University of Nebraska Press, 2005). - Die Tafeln zeigen kleine Pläne und Spiel- sowie Turnanlagen, Turngeräte etc; die erste Tafel mit 3 Illustrationen zum Baseball (Feld und "bat"). ----- Gutsmuths was a pioneer of physical education and gymnastics. In this compendium of games and sports he describes 15 different types of ballgame, including Thorball, Schnurball, Fangball, and Prellball. Most importantly he devotes nearly seven pages to "englische Base-ball", the forerunner to American baseball played from at least 1750 by the schoolchildren of Britain. The title of this German work translates as ``Games for the Exercise and Recreation of Body and Spirit for Youth`` and includes a descriptions of various games and sports, including cricket, badminton, golf, croquet, chess, etc. The most notable, however, appears on pages 78-85 under the heading ``Ball mit Freystäten (oder das englische Base-ball)`` -- that is, ``Ball with free station (or English Base-ball).`` The rules that Gutsmiths outlines are familiar: two teams compete, with a pitcher throwing a ball to a batsman who has three attempts to put the ball in play and circle the bases. Although many claim that the rules for modern baseball were first codified in 1845 by the Knickerbocker Base Ball Club, this description precedes it by almost 50 years. - "Gutsmuths`s documentation of the game is an important contribution to baseball history, because it is the strongest surviving evidence of an ancient family of European ball games that may have influcenced the inception of baseball in England" (David Block, Baseball Before We Knew It, 2005, p 182). The first description of rounders or any other baseball-like game did not appear in English until 1828. See also The Dickson Baseball Dictionary, 2011. - Ohne das Frontispiz. Etwas berieben. Hs. Bleistiftanmerkungen auf den Seiten 472-480. Tls. gering fleckig.

        An Inquiry into the Nature and Causes of the Wealth of Nations

      London: Printed for A. Strahan; and T. Cadell jun. and W. Davies, 1796. Early edition of Adam Smith's magnum opus and cornerstone of economic thought. Octavo, 3 volumes. Bound in full contemporary tree calf, gilt titles and tooling to the spine, marbled endpapers. In very condition with some light rubbing to the bindings, contemporary signature of Josiah Masters and William Peacock. Masters was a United States Representative from New York, a graduate from Yale College in 1783. He studied law, and was admitted to the bar and commenced practice. He was elected as a Democratic-Republican to the Ninth and Tenth Congresses, holding office from March 4, 1805 to March 3, 1809. A nicely bound 18th century set of this classic work. Adam Smith's masterpiece, first published in 1776, is the foundation of modern economic thought and remains the single most important account of the rise of, and the principles behind, modern capitalism. "The history of economic theory up to the end of the nineteenth century consists of two parts: the mercantilist phase which was based not so much on a doctrine as on a system of practice which grew out of social conditions; and the second phase which saw the development of the theory that the individual had the right to be unimpeded in the exercise of economic activity. While it cannot be said that Smith invented the latter theory...his work is the first major expression of it. He begins with the thought that labour is the source from which a nation derives what is necessary to it. The improvement of the division of labour is the measure of productivity and in it lies the human propensity to barter and exchange...Labour represents the three essential elements-wages, profit and rent-and these three also constitute income. From the working of the economy, Smith passes to its matter -'stock'- which encompasses all that man owns either for his own consumption or for the return which it brings him. The Wealth of Nations ends with a history of economic development, a definitive onslaught on the mercantile system, and some prophetic speculations on the limits of economic control...The Wealth of Nations is not a system, but as a provisional analysis it is complete convincing. The certainty of its criticism and its grasp of human nature have made it the first and greatest classic of modern economic thought" (PMM).

Chevalier (editores) Pintor de paisajes, fue uno de los más ilustres de dicho género y cuya influencia llegó al impresionismo. En seguida adquirió interés por la naturaleza de la zona de la Normandia y de Italia, donde viajó en varias ocasiones. Contactó con Daubigny, Rousseau y los paisajistas de la Escuela de Barbizon. Corot introdujo en Francia la estética de lo fragmentario, definida en la pintura de paisaje por los románticos ingleses como Constable. El clasicismo ofrece paisajes construidos e idealmente representativos de la Naturaleza entendida como un todo universal. Corot presenta, en cambio, figuras u objetos interrumpidos por el límite del cuadro. Sólo son fragmentos de naturaleza recreados por la pintura. Sello en seco del editor. Buen estado de conservación.

This is the standard history of the reign of King John III of Portugal (1521-1557), the "strong-willed and weak-minded ascetic," and has been called by Figueiredo one of the five best classical works in Portuguese. Like all Renaissance chronicles of Portugal, the history dwells more extensively on the recent Portuguese conquests in the East and in Brazil, leaving relatively little space for the internal events of the kingdom. The Inquisition discouraged any emphasis on home affairs, especially in works such as this, written in the vernacular.Of the 413 chapters in the book, at least 291 deal partly or completely with Portuguese activities in the East, at Goa, Diu, Chaul, and Calicut in India, Ternate and Malacca, Ceylon, and China. An additional 46 chapters are concerned with Africa and the Mideast, e.g. Mozambique, Zanzibar, Ethiopia, Ormuz, Suez, Alcacer Cequer, Tangiers, Ceuta and Arzila. There is also one chapter (IV, 32) on the foundation of Salvador in Brazil; as the author says in the introduction to this chapter, the King and his Council paid less attention to that area at the time, "avendoas por menos importantes, porque os proveitos dellas se esperavão mais da grangearia da terra, que do comercio da gente ."Francisco de Andrade (ca. 1535-1614), brother of the great mystic writer Frei Thomé de Jesus, wrote this chronicle and was the author of the celebrated epic poem on the first siege of Diu, @O primeiro cerco . de Diu, which he regarded as a supplementary chapter to this history. Andrade was a Commander of the Order of Christ, a member of the State Council, Chief Keeper of the Archives and Chief Chronicler of the Kingdom.Provenance: Bernardino Ribeiro de Carvalho (1846-1910), born in the freguesia de Cabaços, concelho de Alvaiázere, came to Lisbon, was brought into the business of his uncle / father-in-law, and acquired a great fortune importing exotic lumber. He was a passionate book collector, frequenting auctions and bookshops from the 1860s until shortly prior to his death. Among the sales he attended and purchased at were those of Sir Gubian (1867), the Visconde de Juromenha (1887), José da Silva Mendes and Jorge César de Figanière (1889), the Condes de Linhares (1895), and José Maria Nepomuceno (1887).*** Borba de Moraes (1958) I, 29-30; curiously, the revised ed. does not list this work.

        Skizzen physischer und moralischer Gegenstaende. Für die Jugend in 24 Kupfertafeln vorgestellt.

      Nürnberg, Trautner o. J. (ca. 1796). - 4°. 25 Bl. mit gestoch. Titel u. 24 fast ganzs. handkol. Kupfertafeln u. gestoch. Text. Pbd. d. Zt. Doderer-Müller 95. Rümann 324. Rammensee 490. Wegehaupt I, 691. - Erste und einzige Ausgabe des äußerst seltenen frühen Bilderbuchs mit 24 Kinder- und Familienszenen in chronologischer Reihenfolge und gestochenem Text. - "Das wohl schönste Kinderbuch Gablers sind jedoch die Skizzen physischer und moralischer Gegenstände. Wann der heute nur noch in vier Exemplaren bekannte Kupferband zuerst erschien, läßt sich nicht ermitteln" (Horst Kunze, Historische Kinderbücher, Band 25, S. 4). Heute sind ca. 19 Exemplare in Bibliotheken nachweisbar. Die erste Kupfertafel zeigt eine Kinderstube, danach werden die vier Elemente veranschaulicht: Kinder beim Drachensteigen, bei der Gartenarbeit, beim Spielen am Wasser und beim Betrachten eines Feuerwerks. Darauf folgt eine Darstellung der fünf Sinne in Familienszenen, danach die Tageszeiten im Dorf, die vier Lebensalter und schließlich Armut, Reichtum, Gesundheit, Krankheit, Tod und Begräbnis. Die realistischen Szenen aus dem bürgerlichen Alltag erinnern an Chodowiecki, sie sind aber durch das große Format und die klaren Aussagen besonders für den Anschauungsunterricht von Kindern geeignet. - Zur aktuellen Forschung über den Nürnberger Maler und Kupferstecher Ambrosius Gabler (1762-1834) siehe Heidrun Ludwig, Nürnberger naturgeschichtliche Malerei im 17. und 18. Jahrhundert, Marburg an der Lahn 1998, S. 331 ff. (erwähnt die vorliegenden "Skizzen" jedoch nicht). – Einband teils stärker berieben und fleckig, Titelblatt mit kl. Sammlerstempel, 2 Bl. mit restaurierten Randeinrissen, meist im unteren und rechten Blattrand etwas stock- und fingerfleckig, die schönen in leuchtenden Farben kolorierten Kupfertafeln in gutem Abdruck.
