        Erklärung der Kupfer zur Darstellung des Geschmacks der verschiedenen Völker.

      (Leipzig, Göschen 1796 - 1798).. Mit 49 Kupfertafeln. 10 S. HLdr. um 1850. 20,5 x 25,5 cm.. ADB XXVII, 105; Rümann 887; Ornamentkatalog 3978. - Der sehr seltene Tafelband zu dem vierbändigen Werk "Darstellung und Geschichte des Geschmacks der vorzüglichsten Völker in Beziehung auf die Auszierung der Zimmer und auf die Baukunst". Die Tafeln u. a. von P. Veith, J. G. Schmidt, J. G. Seiffert, J. A. Dornstedt nach Christian Friedrich Schuricht. - Rackwitz (1744-1818) war seit 1790 Hofmarschall am kursächsischen Hof; in dieser Eigenschaft war er u. a. für die Verwaltung und Ausgestaltung der herrschaftlichen Gartenanlagen und Wohnräume zuständig. Das Werk zeigt die verschiedensten Möglichkeiten und Stilentwürfe auf, der hier vorliegende Tafelband mit einer Vielzahl an Beispielen besonders für die Ausgestaltung von Gärten und Parkanlagen. - Nicht überall stießen die Racknitzschen Ideen auf Begeisterung, Schiller und Goethe spotteten in den Xenien: "Ehemals hatte man einen Geschmack; nun gibt es Geschmäcke; Aber sagt mir, wo sitzt dieser Geschmäcke Geschmack?" und "Kamtschadalisch lehrt man euch bald die Zimmer verzieren, Und doch ist Manches bei euch schon kamtschadalisch genug". - Die wenigen Vergleichsexemplar auf deutschen Auktionen der letzten 60 Jahre immer mit nur 48 Tafeln. Einige Tafeln etwas stockfleckig, insgesamt recht gutes Exemplar!

        Behemoth. Der Roman über alle Romane. Oder Leben, Thaten und Meynungen des irrenden Ritters Orthodox welcher gegen 2000 Jahre lebte und jetzo an der Auszehrung gar jämmerlich und gefährlich darnieder liegt. Eine Feen- und Popanzen-Geschichte fürs ganze Volk. 351 S. Alter Kleisterpapier-Pappbd mit Rückenfileten.

      Gedruckt in diesem Jahr (d. i. Altona, Vollmer, 1796?). - Außerordentlich seltene erste Ausgabe, eine der schärfsten kritischen Anklagen gegen das Preußen Friedrich Wilhelm II. vor dem Zusammenbruch 1806. Das Buch wurde im dänischen Altona gedruckt, wo keine Zensur bestand. Dorthin war Riem zu einem Freund auf dem Weg zu seinem Exil nach Holland und Frankreich geflüchtet. Diesem Roman folgten noch zwei Fortsetzungen: 'Der Substitut des Behemot' und 'Infernale'. Die Romane schildern "verschlüsselt, aber für die Zeitgenossen unschwer erkennbar, die Situation in Preußen unter Friedrich Wilhelm II. und dessen Hofstaat auf satirische, zynische und teils unflätige Weise" (Trauzettel 311, dieses Exemplar). Proben hatte Rebmann schon 1795 in seinem 'Neuen grauen Ungeheuer' abgedruckt. Dort wird das Buch merkwürdigerweise "als 'ehestens erscheinend' angekündigt, aber nach Angabe im 8. Hefte 1797 [!] ist das ganze Manuskript, wenn auch in den Händen des Herausgebers, so doch immer noch nicht gedruckt, und es wird das Versprechen gegeben, das ganze Werk zur nächsten Michaelsmesse zu liefern, während es in den Buchhändleranzeigen schon 1796 mit dem Preise angezeigt wird. Vermutlich ist es verspätet erst 1797 herausgekommen . Der ernste Politiker ist . darin zu pöbelhaftesten Gemeinheiten herabgesunken" (O. Tschirch, Gesch. d. öffentl. Meinung in Preußen, I, S. 243). Bis zur Veröffentlichung der Behemoth-Trilogie hatte Riem überwiegend postitive Kritiken, nun war er emotionaler Abblehnung, ja geradezu Anfeindungen ausgesetzt. – Sauber und breitrandig – Welker 71. Jestädt, Vollmer, 142. Hayn/G. II 456. H./B. I 4368 und Weller, Druckorte, 163 nennen 'Bagdad' als Druckort. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Viaggio alle Indie Orientali umiliato alla Santita di N. S. Papa Pio Sesto pontefice massimo [...].

      Rome, Antonio Fulgoni, 1796.. 4to. XX, 404 pp. With 12 engraved plates (6 with 2 illustrations each, thus totalling 18), engraved roundel portraits of Pope Pius VI (on the title page) and of the author (above the beginning of the main text) and several small woodcuts of "Indian hieroglyphs". Set in Roman and Italic types with occasional interspersions in Greek, Arabic, East Syriac, and Devanagari and more extensive texts in Malayalam, plus a Malabar song with a double staff made with built-up round-head music notes. 19th-century maroon half sheepskin, sewn on 3 recessed cords (but with 5 faux bands on the spine), blue textured paper sides, shell on shell marbled endpapers.. First edition, in Italian, of a pioneering work of Indian linguistics and comparative philology by the Croatian Carmelite monk Filip Vesdin (1748-1806) who took the monastic name Paulinus a Sancto Bartholomaeo, with his 6-page dedication to Pope Pius VI. Although in name an account of Vesdin's missionary travels in southern India, including Pondicherry, Verapoly (Varappuzha) and Kerala, from 1776 to 1789, the book concentrates on religious tenets and practices, society, languages and scripts, taking a comparative approach. The author discusses the spread of Muslim influence in northern India and its influence on Sanskrit traditions. Outspoken in his opinions, Vesdin clashed with other scholars of his day. He learned Sanskrit and especially Malayalam, which holds a position of honour in the book. The Malayan type, used most extensively on pages 164-165 and 325, was cut for the printing office of the Propaganda Fide in Rome, which first used it in 1772. It seems to be the first type ever made for that script. The East Syriac, Devanagari (used for setting Sanskrit), Coptic and perhaps some of the other types were also cut for the Propaganda Fide. - Engraved bookplate of Gianni Boccoli illustrating a 1567 armillary sphere by Gemma Frisius. A few leaves slightly browned, showing occasional minor foxing, but otherwise in fine condition and only slightly trimmed, preserving some deckles. A pioneering work on Indian languages and society by a Croatian monk. - ICCU, RAVE 004982. Milka Jauk-Pinhak, "Some notes on the pioneer Indologist Filip Vesdin", Scandinavian Conference-Seminar of Indological Studies, XII (1984), pp. 129-137. A. G.

        The Narrative of a Five Years Expedition against the Revolted Negroes of Surinam,

      London: Printed for J. Johnson & J. Edwards,, 1796. in Guinana, on the Wild Coast of South America; from the year 1772, to 1777: elucidating the History of that Country, and describing its Productions, Viz. Quadrupedes, Birds, Fishes, Reptiles, Trees, Shrubs, Fruits, & Roots; with an account of the Indians of Guiana, & Negroes of Guinea. 2 volumes, quarto (268 x 206 mm). Near contemporary speckled calf, recornered and rebacked with old spine laid down, gilt in compartments, red and black morocco labels, floral decorations to compartments, edges speckled blue. Engraved frontispiece, 78 plates, all after Stedman and 2 of which are folding, and 2 folding maps. Contemporary ownership inscription to front free endpapers; red morocco label of Volume II loosely inserted. Extremities rubbed and a touch worn, boards slightly scuffed, endpapers tanned, light offsetting from plates, occasional spotting to margins. A very good copy. First edition of this richly illustrated and influential contemporary account of plantation society in the Americas. Stedman (1744-1797) was an army officer with the Scots Brigade in Holland. "In 1771 … he responded to a call for volunteers to put down a slave rebellion in the wealthy South American colony of Surinam" (ODNB). As one of about 800 volunteers sent by the Dutch States-General, Stedman left Holland in December 1772, arriving in Surinam in February 1773. He would remain there for the next five years, during which he kept detailed daily logs which served as the foundation for the printed book, though the first edition was heavily edited by the publisher Joseph Johnson. Regardless, Stedman's "book serves as one of the most vivid indictments of slavery" (Howgego). Geoffrey Keynes ranks the engravings by Blake as the artist's "most interesting and important book illustrations" (in Ryskamp, William Blake, Engraver: a Descriptive Catalogue, 1969, p.10).

        Sermon predicado el dia 31 de mayo de 1795, en la solemne accion de gracias que celebró por el cumplimiento, de un siglo de su fundacion, el Convento de religiosas teresas de Guadalaxara, corte de la Nueva Galicia

      Guadalaxara: Impreso ... por D. Marinano Valdez Tellez Giron Small 4to (20.5 cm; 8"). [6] ff., 25, [1] pp.. 1796 Our sermonizer was "tesorero de la santa iglesia" of Guadalajara. The Carmelite nuns of the Convento de Religiosas Teresas are celebrating their centenary and are paying to have the the celebratory sermon printed, dedicating it to "la Virgen Madre, venerada con el título de la expectacion en la sagrada imágen de Zapopán," and providing a four-page introduction to the publication. Moreno uses Matthew 28:20 as the starting point for a homily on the monastery's founding. This is one of the first publications printed in Guadalajara, which did not get its first press until 1793. Searches of NUC and WorldCat locate only six copies in U.S. libraries. No copies are located via the OPACs of the Mexican or Spanish national libraries, of the Universidad de Guadalajara, or via CCPB or COPAC. Original plain wrappers, small dark discoloration at top edge of front one and lesserly to first leaf. A fine copy.

        The frugal housewife: Or, complete woman cook

      Philadelphia: James Carey 12mo (17.2 cm, 6.75"). 132 pp.; 2 plts.. 1796 Fourth American edition (following the London and Boston first editions of 1772) of this landmark work of early British cookery. Not much is known about Carter herself, but her emphasis on a variety of tasty, accessible gravies and sauces has stood the test of time. Although in its initial U.S. appearances, the Frugal Housewife was strictly oriented towards British cuisine and ingredients, it was later adapted and expanded for American housewives, and portions of the original publication directly formed the basis for the first American-authored cookbook: Amelia Simmons's American Cookery.The work includes chapters on pickling and preserving and on homemade wines, and is illustrated with two engraved plates that depict trussing techniques for cooking fowls and hares.Provenance: Flourishing old signatures of "J. Lowry" to pastedown and title-page. Contemporary treed sheep, moderately rubbed and with some chipping; spine with gilt-stamped leather title-label (also chipped), boards slightly warped, and joints well repaired. Paper somewhat browned and foxed but quite strong, with pp. 41–44 long ago supplied from another copy; some edges ragged and corners bumped.

        A Journey to Jerusalem : Containing the Travels of Fourteen Englishmen in 1667, to the Holy Land, and Other Memorable Places Noted in Scripture. : To Which Is Prefixed, Memorable Remarks Upon the Ancient and Modern State of the Jewish Nation

      Hartford : Printed by J. Babcock, 1796-01-01. Hardcover. Good. 12mo. 132 p. ; 18 cm. First American Edition. An unsophisticated copy. Contemporary leather spine over blue boards. Worn binding. Printed on blued paper. Foxing throughout. Tear with loss to text on the middle of pg 21/2. Evans 30301Nathaniel Crouch was an English printer and bookseller, and under the pseudonym Richard Burton (or R.B.) wrote historical books as well. As a historian, he is considered a hack, borrowing material from other books and rewriting them under his pseudonym, then publishing and marketing them under the Crouch imprint, though more recent assessments of his life and career see him as an important figure in the development of historiography, especially in the popularization of a hitherto high-culture genre of discourse. "With probably little education, but something of a natural gift for writing, Crouch had the sagacity to see that the works of the learned, from their form and price, were kept within a narrow circle of readers, while there was a vast multitude outside who were able and willing to read, provided that a literature suited to their means and capacities was supplied to them. He accordingly set himself the task of transfusing large and pompous books into a series of small, cheap volumes, modestly concealing his authorship under his nom de plume. Thus, he produced Surprising Miracles of Nature and Art, and many other treatises on very plain paper, and sold [them] at an exceedingly reasonable rate. His enterprise and diligence were rewarded by large sales and considerable wealth." --Kacirk, Jeff (1997). Forgotten English

        The origin of duty and right in man, considered

      London: J. Bateson, Richard White 1796 - A handsome volume. Bound in later ¼ leather over marbled boards. Shelf wear to extremities. Some foxing. [4], ii, 179, [1] p. Unmarked, except there is a long, contemporary analytic inscription on the title page. An interesting argument for natural law that attacks the civil contract of Locke and his ilk. From the title page, in neat contemporary penmanship: ?In a letter to the Honorable Thomas Erskine containing some stricture on his view of the causes and consequences of the present war with France by John Gifford Esq ? author of a letter to the Earl of Lauderdale. He observed that the Origin of Duty and Right of Man Considered is a work which contains more useful constitutional knowledge than is to be found in the Political writings of Locke, & all his supporters on this important topic. The author here displayed a study [of the] philosophic mind actuated by the best principles and directed end. The well being of all. The authorship is not stated, which comes as no surprise considering the danger to English free speech during this period. This being said, the author probably was Joshua Tucker (aka Dean Tucker) (1713-1799). Tucker was a Welsh clergyman, economist and political writer. He was an opponent of Locke's social contract theory (as this tract is). Additionally, I located an old bookseller?s catalog from 1816 that groups this tract with some of Tucker?s other political pamphlets (see A Catalogue of Books, now on sale by Emerson Charnley). I have also included a copy of The Monthly review, Article XXII. p. 325-326. The article has an in depth contemporary criticism of this work.ESTCT43423 [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Leonora Bound with the Fables : Of John Dryden, Ornamented with Engravings From the Pencil of the Right Hon. Lady Diana Beauclerc.

      London: Printed for W. Miller; Printed by T. Bensley 1796 - 2 Volumes bound in one. Fine binding. Folio. viii, 35 pages, 5 pl., 4 vignettes; Fables of Dryden, 1797 printing., 4, xviii, 241p, 9 pl, 15 head and tail vignettes. Bound in modern morocco leather. Gilt lettering, gilt ruled and embossed spine. 5 raised bands. Marbled endpages. Toning to pages verso plates. Light toning. Light tanning to pages. Clean, unmarked pages. ESTC T128162; Lowndes, 678. Gottfried August Burger was a German poet. His ballads were very popular in Germany. His most noted ballad, Lenore, had a profound effect on the development of Romantic literature throughout Europe and a strong influence on the English ballad-writing revival of the 1790s. Lady Diana Beauclerk (nee Lady Diana Spencer), was an English noblewoman and artist. During those years of her second marriage, Lady Diana's artistic talents became particularly evident: she practiced portraiture, and her enormous output of small drawings of fat cupids entangled in branches of grapes and little girls wearing mob caps gave place to larger and more ambitious groups of peasantry introduced into landscaped backgrounds. She worked chiefly in pen and ink, pastel, and watercolor. In 1796 she illustrated the English translation of G. A. Burger's ballad Leonora and in 1797 The Fables of John Dryden; in both cases her illustrations were engraved mostly by Francesco Bartolozzi. (DNB) The esteemed and highly sought-after engraver Francesco Bartolozzi was selected to translate her drawings to copperplates attests to her high standing. Only two books were published accompanied by her illustrations, both engraved by Bartolozzi and published by Bensley: Spencer?s translation of Lenore, 1796 and the Fables of John Dryden in 1797. ?The golden Preface [of Dryden?s Fables, included in this edition] describes his delighted progress from Homer to Ovid, from Ovid to Chaucer, and from Chaucer to Boccaccio, the volume constantly swelling in his hands; ?I have built a house,? he concludes, ?where I intended but a lodge?? Dryden?s search for materials was far and wide? He plundered medieval as well as ancient story; he went to the greatest tellers of tales wherever they were, whether they were Greek, Roman, Italian, or English? The chime of Dryden?s verse was never done? (Van Doren, 214-15) [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Friedens-Präliminarien. Hrsg. von dem Verfasser des heimlichen Gerichts (d. i. Ludwig Ferdinand Huber). 40 Stücke in 10 Bänden (alles Erschienene). Zus. 10 Bl., XX, 4004 S., 5 Bl. Mit 1 (von 2) Porträts und 1 (von 2) Faltkarten. Pappkartonagen d. Z. (berieben, Gelenke teils stärker beschabt) mit etw. späteren Rückenschildern.

      Berlin, Voss, 1794-1796. - Textlich vollständiges Exemplar der bedeutenden Zeitschrift, wichtig auch deshalb, weil eine Reihe von Erstdrucken von Briefen und Aufsätzen Georg Forsters enthalten sind. Huber hatte durch seine Beziehungen zu Therese Forster die Möglichkeit, den Nachlass Forsters durchzusehen und zu verwerten. "So erschienen hier etwa – noch ohne Autorennennung und mit gehässigen Anmerkungen Hubers versehen – die 'Parisischen Umrisse', in denen Forster versucht, anhand der aktuellen Pariser Ereignisse eine Theorie der Revolution überhaupt zu geben; weiter die Aufsätze 'Revolution und Gegenrevolution im Jahre 1790', 'Uber die Beziehung der Staatskunst auf das Glück der Menschheit' und endlich der Entwurf eines Schreibens der allgemeinen Administration von Mainz an die Kommissarien des Nationalkonvents. Außerdem verstümmeln, zerstückeln und verfälschen der Verleger, der Herausgeber und die Witwe Forsters eine Fülle von Briefen, die zeigen sollen, daß Forster 'kein Verräther, kein muthwilliger Schwindelkopf, kein ehrgeitziger Unruhestifter geworden war'. So wird aus dem Revolutionär und Bürger der französischen Republik der resignierende Georg Forster gemacht, den L. F. Huber für die eigene Selbstdarstellung und Selbstrechtfertigung benötigte" (Hocks/Schmidt). Unter den weiteren Mitarbeitern sind zu nennen: C. L. Haller, K. E. Oelsner und E. A. W. Zimmermann. Übersetzt wurden Texte von Robespierre, Sieyès, Lafayette, Mallet du Pan, Volney u. a. – Äußerst selten! Vorhanden sind in Band 2 die Karte des Feldzugs an der Maas und das Porträt von Robespierre in Band 5. Das Porträt der Marie Antoinette in Band 1 sowie die Karte vom Feldzug in der Vendée in Band 3 liegen in Kopie bei. Die Hinweise auf diese Beigaben sind auf den Titeln alt überklebt. Unterschiedlich gebräunt und stockfleckig. – Goed. V 482, 11. Kirchner 1727 (1793-96; je 8 Stücke, also nur 32 Stücke). Hocks/Schmidt 61 f. Fiedler (Forster) 282, 285-287, 337, 360, 396 und 432.

Jane Austen and George Eliot both thought highly of the book, and Ruskin ranked it with Don Quixote, though others have found Charles Grandison impossibly perfect and consequently uninteresting. This attractive set is a copy of the eighth edition, showing that the novel could still captivate the public some forty years after its first appearance.

        Exposition du Syst?me du Monde

      Paris: Imprimerie du Cercle-Social, 1796. First edition, with half-titles, without errata as usual. 314, (4); 312, (4) pp. 2 vols. 8vo. Contemporary blue-patterned boards, contrasting spine labels. Some toning, joints just starting, heads a bit chipped. Verso of half-title in volume I bears a few bibliographical notes in pencil. Very good. "Among the most influential scientists in all history" - DSB "Book I begins with what any attentive observer may see if he will open his eyes to the spectacle of the heavens on a clear night with a view of the whole horizon. Book II ? sets out the "real" motions of the planets, satellites and comets and gives the dimensions of the solar system. Book III is a verbal précis of the laws of motion as understood in eighteenth-century rational mechanics, with special reference to astronomy and hydrostatics. In Book IV, Laplace in effect summarized his own work in gravitational mechanics. Much of it consists of simplification of the prefatory sections to the published memoirs. The topics are perturbations in planetary motions, the shape of the earth, the attraction of spheroids and the rings of Saturn, motions of the tides and atmosphere, the moons of Jupiter, precession, and lunar motions. Only Book V contains material that Laplace had not written up in technical form or presupposed. It gives an overview of the history of astronomy and concludes with the speculation since called the nebular hypothesis and another on the nature of the universe in outer space." - DSB.

Also a concise view of the antient and modern constitution and political establishments of Britain, it's [sic] laws, institutions, parliaments, charters, grants, commerce, arts, sciences, &c. Likewise a chronological account of all the kings and queens of England: with an impartial display of their respective characters, whether distinguished for their wisdom in the cabinet, their military achievements in the field, their private crimes, or their public vices. Including an history of the American War and Revolution. To which are added, histories of the French Revolution, and the Revolution in Holland, &c. Together with every memorable transaction respecting Ireland and other countries. Interspersed with remarks, observations, and reflections: by which former errors are corrected, absurdities pointed out, fabulous narrations expunged, party prejudices removed, and what has hitherto appeared obscure and doubtful authenticated from the most respectable evidence."John Baxter (fl. 1794?-1816), silversmith and radical, assumed some prominence within the London Corresponding Society when he succeeded Margarot as chairman in 1794. He was arrested but not charged during the treason trials of the same year. Baxter was also a founder member, along with the bookseller Joseph Burks, of the Friends of Liberty, formerly division 16 of the LCS, which separated from the society in 1795. His New and impartial history of England from the most early period of genuine historical evidence to the present important and alarming crisis (1796) exhibited a politically articulate intellect. Details of his later career remain unclear: he was a known member of the United Irish movement, and in 1816 a satirical broadsheet, William Snow's The Polemic Fleet, listed him as a prominent member of the radical Spencean circle. Other sources suggest that the ?'Impregnable?' Baxter may by this date have been practising as a surgeon." [Michael T. Davis in ODBN]Baxter's New and impartial history shows him to be proud of his LCS and radical associations. He there describes himself as "Member of the London Corresponding Society, and one of the twelve indicted and acquitted of high treason at the Old Bailey" and acknowledges the fact that in writing his book he was "assisted by several gentlemen, distinguished friends to liberty and a parliamentary reform". Baxter continues his bold public statement of his radical motivation by dedicating the History "To the people at large, to the London Corresponding Society in particular, and to the political societies of Great Britain in general, associated for parliamentary reform, and the promotion of constitutional information ......".4to., 50 engraved plates (including the allegorical frontispiece), xii + (1) + 14 - 556 + 567 - 762 + 759 - 762 + 767 - 830 + (4)pp., including the final 4-page list of subscribers, occasional very minor foxing, a few leaves with mild old dampstain, rebound fairly recently in quarter calf over marbled boards, spine gilt with raised bands and morocco label lettered gilt.
