        Camilla

      London - T Payne, T Cadell, W Davies, 1796 Book. VERY GOOD INDEED. Hardcover. First edition.. A first edition of Fanny Burney's Camilla. An English novelist, diarist, and playwright, Fanny Burney (1752-1840) had a long and prosperous writing career. Through writing four novels, eight plays, twenty volumes of journals and letters, and a biography she gained critical respect in her field. Burney wasa forerunner to Jane Austen, Thackeray, and other novelists with a satirical edge. The greatly popularnovel Camilla focuses on the Tyrold family and their matrimonial concerns. It is thought to advance the contemporary spirit of romanticism as it follows their hardships and mistakes on the path of love. Burney brings in social, emotional, and mental dilemmas that made Camilla a popular read. Without the scarce half titles and final advert leaf to volume I. Complete in five volumes. Condition: Rebound in a cloth binding with original publishers boards. Externally, sound with rubbing. Bumping to boards. Light browning to pastedowns and free-endpapers. Wear to front board of vol V. Hinges straining but sound to front and rear of volI and IV, and rear of vol II. Internally, firmly bound. Pages generally bright and clean with the occasional spot.

Spencer Perceval, 1762-1812, a Pitt-ite who went on to become Prime Minister - and the only British PM to be assassinated; and Mr William Walcot, representing the Corporation. Bouverie and Perceval were elected after a fiercely fought contest. The ephemeral items offered here were part of the campaign, locally printed and handed-out in the street. None of them are on ESTC. The Poll Book is ESTC T43995, but as far as we can ascertain, no ephemera or pamphlets from the 1796 Northampton Election are recorded in British collections. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

      Paris, chez Maradan, Imprimerie de Crapelet, an IV - 1796, - 2 volumes in-8, [4]-L-376 et [4]-409 pp., avec dix planches gravées, d'après Perrin, avec la lettre sur les serpentes, veau blond, dos lisses ornés de fleurons et de semis géométriques dorés, pièces de titre et de tomaison cerise, encadrement de dent-de-rat, simple filet et guirlande de palmettes dorés sur les plats, chaînette dorée sur les coupes, tranches dorées, hachuré doré sur les contreplats (reliure de l'époque). Des épidermures légères, mais bel exemplaire. Un des exemplaires sur grand papier, avec les figures partiellement avant la lettre. Etant donné que le texte de Georges (ou Guillaume) de Brébeuf (1617-1661), paru originellement en 1654-1655 est plus une adaptation qu'une traduction fidèle, en dépit des louanges de Corneille, on peut estimer avoir ici un double ouvrage des deux poètes sur le même thème, et à la suite, plus qu'un modèle et sa version en langue française.

        Axur Koenig von Ormus, Eine Oper in vier Aufzügen. nach Dr. Schmieders teutscher Bearbeitung... Fürs Clavier eingerichtet von C.G. Neefe... No: 30. Pr: Fl. 7.1/2. [Piano-vocal score]

Axur, to a libretto by Lorenzo da Ponte after Pierre-Augustin Beaumarchais' libretto Tarare, was first performed in Vienna at the Burgtheater on January 8, 1788 in celebration of the marriage of Archduke Franz, Joseph's nephew. "Axur was an immediate and lasting success. It was said to have been Joseph's favourite opera, and it found favour with the Viennese public as well. With 100 performances between 1788 and 1805, Axur was one of the most often performed operas in the Viennese court theatres during this period. Many performances in Germany, mostly in German translation, attest to its popularity during the last decade of the 18th century and the first decade of the 19th." John A. Rice in Grove Music Online. Christian Gottlob Neefe (1748-1798) is best remembered as Beethoven's first important teacher.. Full contemporary gray paper boards, black leather title label gilt to spine.

Minor wear, soiling, and occasional light foxing and staining. A very good copy overall.

The book itself, addressed to 'My dear young friend', indicates, however, that the author was the young lady's governess who here provides her 'young friend' with moral, social and spiritual guidance for her impending adult life as a lady of privilege. Thus she addresses such subjects as scriptures, the sabbath, truth, content, fortitude, pride, and 'on the duties of children to parents' (a long section in vol.II, pp.103-203).

Bentham's celebrated essay on the usury laws as an attack on liberty. It began as a series of letters written between January and April 1787 during his long stay with his brother Samuel at his house at Zadobras, near Crichoff in Russia. The letters (13 in all) were written to his friend, George Wilson, in London, largely in response to reports (later to be unconfirmed) that Pitt was then contemplating a reduction of the rate of interest from 5 to 4%. Bentham took the opportunity to write about the commercially thorny interest-rate question including, of course, what he regarded as the stupidity of the government controlled interest rates. He early on took issue with Adam Smith, who seemed, in the Wealth of Nations, to approve the 5% limitation. In May 1787, the manuscript was sent to Wilson. It was published in 1788 through the agency of Jeremiah Bentham. Cohen, Bibliography of Early American Law 2641.

        A Pair of Horses] 'Gentle Kitty' and 'Melilcoma'.

      Berlin Esner 1796 - Copper-plate engravings after Wolf, with fine original hand-colouring in gouache. Trimmed and mounted onto a laid paper support with manuscript titles in the style of the original, fine condition with colours remaining clean and bright. Very slight loss of gouache in small area of 'Gentle Kitty'. Image dimensions: 340 by 500mm. (13.50 by 19.75 inches). Framed dimensions: 490 by 620mm. (19.25 by 24.25 inches) Gentle Kitty, a thoroughly British thoroughbred, was bred by John Hutton, sired in 1774 by Silvio out of Dorimond mare, both from the grandest of blood lines of the Darley Arabian via the Godolphin Arabian and Godolphin Whitefoot. Melilcoma was an East Prussian racehorse, sired in 1792 by Archer out of Pallas. These fine equestrian portraits were engraved by Johann Meno Haas (1752-1833), who was born in Germany but was raised and initially trained in Copenhagen. He moved to Paris in 1782, where he trained under Nicolas de Launay, before returning to Berlin in 1786. He was much in demand as a highly accomplished engraver. This pair seems to be from an extremely scarce series of famous racehorses, with only one other example found in this fine contemporary gouache.

A MOST HISTORIC ACCOUNT OF THE FIRST BRITISH EMBASSY . . TO CHINA AND THE CHI'EN LUNG EMPEROR IN 1797 . . . TOGETHER WITH A DATED PENNED LETTER . . FROM LADY MCARTNEY TO A FRIEND . *** SUBTITLE.: continued: Tartary. Together With a Relation of The Voyage Undertaken on the Occasion By His Majesty's Ship the Lion, and the Ship Hindostan, in the East India Company's Service, to the Yellow Sea, and Gulf of Pekin; as well as of Their Return to Europe; With Notices of the Several Places Where they Stopped in Their Way Out and Home; Being the Islands of Madeira, Teneriffe, and St. Jago; The Port of Rio De Janeiro in South America; the Islands of St. Helena, Tristan D'Acunha, and Amsterdam; the Coasts of Java, and Sumatra; the Nanka Islands, Pulo Condore, and Cochin-China. Taken Chiefly From the Papers of His Excellency the Earl of Macartney, .Sir George Staunton. In Two volumes, with engravings; beside a folio volume of plates. The Second [and considered the best] edition, corrected. . **** . WHO WAS THE FIRST EARL, GEORGE MACARTNEY: George Macartney, 1st Earl Macartney, KB [1737-1806] was a British statesman, colonial administrator and diplomat. He was know for his famous quote about Britain having: "A vast Empire, on which the sun never sets". . MCARTNEY BECAME BRITAIN'S FIRST AMBASSADOR TO CHINA: . After being created Earl Macartney in the Irish peerage [1792] he was appointed the first envoy of Britain to China, after the failure of a number of previous embassies, including Cathcart's. He led the Macartney Embassy to Beijing in 1792 with a large British delegation on board a 64-gun man-of-war, HMS Lion. The embassy was ultimately not successful in its primary aim to open trade with China, although numerous secondary purposes were attained, including first-hand assessment of the strength of the Chinese empire. The failure to obtain trade concessions was not due to Macartney's refusal to kowtow in the presence of the Qianlong Emperor, as is commonly believed. It is probably described most neutrally as a result of competing world views which were uncomprehending and incompatible. After the conclusion of the embassy, Qianlong sent a letter to King George III, explaining in greater depth the reasons for his refusal to grant the requests of the embassy. . The Macartney Embassy is historically significant because it marked a missed opportunity by the Chinese to move toward some kind of accommodation with the West. This failure would continue to plague the Qing Dynasty as it encountered increasing foreign pressures and internal unrest during the 19th century. * This work was based on Macartney's journals, and rewritten by Staunton. . **** THE MOST IMPORTANT BOOK ON CHINA OF THE LATE 18TH CENTURY: . By and large, the best single English language item done on China in the 18th century. The official account of Earl McCartney's informative but unsuccessful mission to establish formal diplomatic and commercial relations with China. Staunton accompanied the Embassy as Secretary & compiled his book chiefly from the papers of the Ambassador & his fellow envoys. A fascinating true history of the expedition, useful primary source. . *** WHO WAS GEORGE STAUNTON: George Staunton [1737-1801] was a British diplomat, in 1774 Dr. Samuel Johnson met Staunton and they became life-long friends. Although the official mission to China failed, a wealth of precious information was collected and published in this first comprehensive official account. . During this period of time, Great Britain was anxious to establish formal diplomatic relations with China and open usual trade relations. The unwilling Chinese resisted all Western foreign intervention in China. In the end the gifts and arguments were rejec

A fine copy printed on thick paper.RARE FIRST EDITION, dedicated to Ferdinand III, Grand Duke of Tuscany, of the first book exclusively devoted to the history of the famous fresco called the "Cenacolo", painted by Leonardo da Vinci in the refectory of the monastery of Santa Maria delle Grazie in Milan between 1495 and 1498.The author, the Dominican Domenico Pino, was the prior of the monastery at the time he wrote the book, and had access to the documents of the conventual archive, which later with the arrival in Milan of Napoleon's troops went dispersed.Pino was charged by a Milanese printer who was about to publish a new guide of Milan, to revise the history of the "Cenacolo" and to collect more information about it. He was then visited by the painter Teodoro Matteini, who had been charged by the Grand Duke Ferdinand III with the task of making a copy of the fresco. The copy was later used by Raffaello Morghen for his engraving of the "Cenacolo". Pino searched in the archive trying to debunk some legends circulating about Leonardo's work with the aim of discrediting the fathers of the convent.The book represents therefore an important historical source. For example, Pino quotes a document referring to a payment given to Leonardo on June 1497. The text is accompanied by the author's annotations and an extensive index of notable things.Pino's Storia was a few years later overcome by the monograph of Giuseppe Bossi, who in 1810 published a monumental work on Leonardo's "Cenacolo".Catalogo unico, IT\ICCU\RMRE\000304; E.

Bentham's celebrated essay on the usury laws as an attack on liberty. It began as a series of letters written between January and April 1787 during his long stay with his brother Samuel at his house at Zadobras, near Crichoff in Russia. The letters (13 in all) were written to his friend, George Wilson, in London, largely in response to reports (later to be unconfirmed) that Pitt was then contemplating a reduction of the rate of interest from 5 to 4%. Bentham took the opportunity to write about the commercially thorny interest-rate question including, of course, what he regarded as the stupidity of the government controlled interest rates. He early on took issue with Adam Smith, who seemed, in the Wealth of Nations, to approve the 5% limitation. In May 1787, the manuscript was sent to Wilson. It was published in 1788 through the agency of Jeremiah Bentham. Cohen, Bibliography of Early American Law 2641. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

(Joints, headcaps and corners worn and spine rubbed). Small damp-stain at upper corner of last few leaves in vol.2 and a little light spotting, but a very good clean copy, with the half-titles. There is a rather quaint example of faulty printing on p.279 in vol.1. The bindings are rather worn but the joints are still firm and the labels have been replaced to match the originals. They were originally bound by Pigge of Lynn in Norfolk, with his circular black on white (or yellow) label. Ramsden, Bookbinders of the United Kingdom (Outside London) 1780-1840, p.131, saw the same labels on books of about 1800 with the bookplate of Sir Martin Brown ffolkes.

Erste Auflage!Erstmals "Similia similibus" = Die Geburt der Homöopathie! Diese mit 140 Seiten sehr umfangreiche Arbeit Hahnemanns ist das entscheidene, früheste gedruckte Dokument zur Geschichte der Homöopathie! Tischner und Haehl widmen ihm ausführliche Würdigungen - beginnt doch mit dessen Erscheinen eine neue Ära in der Geschichte der neuzeitlichen Heilkunde."Erst im Jahre 1796 ringt sich Hahnemann die klare Erkenntnis völlig durch, und der neue Weg wird öffentlich vor aller Welt auch schon im Einzelnen mit ganz bestimmten Strichen vorgezeichnet. Der zweite Markstein ist errichtet ... Schwer und heiß hat Hahnemann ... zu ringen gehabt, bis er zu der Erkenntnis gelangte, wie sie uns in dieser Abhandlung entgegentritt ...". Hahnemann veröffentlicht hier diese entscheidenen Sätze:" ... Jedes wirksame Arzneimittel erregt im menschlichen Körper eine Art von eigner Krankheit ... Man ahme die Natur nach, welche zuweilen eine chronische Krankheit durch eine andere hinzukommende heilt, und wende in der zu heilende Krankheit dasjenige Arzneimittel an, welches eine andre, möglichst ähnliche künstliche Krankheit zu erregen im Stande ist, und jene wird geheilt werden Similia similibus (Ähnliches mit Ähnlichem) ...""Damit ist dem ... alten Heilungsgrundsatz 'Contraria contrariis' zum ersten Mal von Hahneman der genau formulierte andere Satz gegenübergestellt: 'Similia similibus' ..." Die Arbeit enthält zudem, über dieses neue Postulat hinaus, den ersten, wenn auch noch skizzenhaften Entwurf seiner neuen Lehren, weshalb Haehl (in Fettdruck) konstatiert: "Das Jahr 1796 ist das Geburtsjahr der Homöopathie".

        Manuscript Letter, Signed, in French, by Count Nicholas Repnin to Colonel von Essen (d'Essen)

      Grodno 1796 - February 22, 1796. Original signed manuscript letter on single sheet of laid paper (ca. 36 x 25 cm), folded once vertically; 4 pp. Additional old fold lines; near fine. Nicholas Repnin was one of the foremost Imperial Russian statesmen of the eighteenth century, second in fame only to Alexander Suvorov. Under Catherine the Great, he served as minister plenipotentiary in Poland, in effect ruling the country and playing a crucial role in the gradual dissolution of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth. He was widely known for his ruthless tactics, which included dictating the Russian demands to the Polish diet and arresting and exiling his opponents, such as the bishops of Kiev and Warsaw. During the Russo-Turkish War of 1768-74, Repnin resigned in order to lead Russian troops into battle against the Ottoman forces. But it was during the next Russo-Turkish conflict (1787-1792) that Repnin rose to fame as the most successful Russian commander apart from Suvorov (1729-1800). The present letter was written in Grodno, during Repnin's tenure as governor-general of the Lithuanian provinces, and concerns an unsavory affair involving one of von Essen's subordinates, the subject of which is merely circumscribed and couched in an abundance of rhetorical flourishes. At the time of writing, Repnin was at the height of his fame, following his successful, if controversial role in the Russo-Turkish War, and shortly before his death in Riga in 1801. A rare private letter, written entirely in French and signed by the author. We are unable to find information about the addressee. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

      Paris, Imprimerie du Cercle Social, 1796 [pour le tome second], pleine basane de l'époque, dos ornés (épidermés), charnières fendues. -Page de titre du t. 2 restaurée au verso avec du papier de l'époque ; lég. manque de papier dans la marge de 2 portraits du t. 2, sans atteinte de la partie gravée ; mouillures claires marginales sur une quinzaine de portraits ; rousseurs éparses. -Précieux exemplaire de P. Quénard, comportant les 2 premiers volumes, avec le tome I incomplet de la page de titre. - 2 volumes in-4 de 1 frontispice-(2)-72 pp.-50 ff. de texte recto-verso accompagnant 50 portraits en médaillons h.t.-(4) pp. et 1 frontispice-(6)-8 pp.-45 ff. de texte recto-verso accompagnant 45 portraits en médaillons h.t.-5 ff. de texte accompagnant 5 portraits en médaillons h.t.-(2)-(4)-(6)-98-(3) pp. + 14 planches h.t. de costumes ; Edition originale, accompagnée de nombreuses notes autographes signées de Quénard.Monglond III-597 à 602 ; Tourneux I-294 ; Colas 383 ; Cohen 175 et 831.Importante note autographe signée, datée du 28 novembre 1801 : celle-ci précise que s'il a bien fait paraître ces deux volumes, le 3e n'est pas de lui. Il ajoute d'ailleurs que ce 3e volume "n'est pas non plus écrit dans le même sens que les 2 premiers." L'auteur explique ensuite que "la prudence l'a contraint à faire des omissions" dans la rédaction des notices, et ce, pour que l'ouvrage puisse paraître, et conclut "il a donc fallu laisser à deviner quelque chose au lecteur, et laisser passer quelques scélérats sous le manteau du patriotisme."Une note autographe et signée sur le portrait de Montesquiou Fezenzac précise que l'habit ecclésiastique du personnage a été converti par l'éditeur en un habit de général et que cette infidélité n'a été découverte qu'après la parution de l'ouvrage. Une note autographe et signée sur le portrait de Barbaroux, là encore, manifeste le regret de l'auteur quant à l'absence de fidélité du portrait. Une note autographe et signée sur le portrait de David précise : "Ce portrait est une infidélité manifeste du graveur Bonneville, qui n'ayant pas le portrait de David, s'est servi d'une planche gravée représentant l'auteur du 3e volume."L'ouvrage sort des presses de l'imprimerie du Cercle Social, qui fut dirigée après Thermidor par Bonneville. Ces portraits forment la collection la plus complète des personnages de la Révolution et ont la réputation de leur conserver un certain réalisme.Les frontispices et les portraits sont "gravés en ovale, à l'eau forte et au pointillé [.]. Bonneville assure que les portraits de Fouquier-Tinville et de Carrier ont été dessinés par lui au tribunal révolutionnaire ainsi que celui de Charlotte Corday et nombre d'autres." (Cohen p. 175)."Ces portraits en médaillon sont dessinés et gravés par Bonneville. Les planches de costumes des autorités constituées (membres du Directoire, des Anciens, des Cinq Cents) sont gravés par Duplessis Bertaux." (Colas).

        Versuch über ein neues Prinzip zur Auffindung der Heilkräfte der Arzneisubstanzen nebst einigen Blicken auf die bisheringen (pp.391-439 + pp.465-561).

      Journ. pract. Heilk., 2. - Jena, in der academischen Buchhandlung, 1796, Kl.8, (2), pp.1-165, (1) (2), 167-322 (4), 323-463, (1) (2), (464)-637, (1), 1 color. Kupferstichtafel, Pappband d.Zt. feines Exemplar. First Edition of Hahnemann's first presentation of his new system of medicine!Erste Auflage! - Erstmals "Similia similibus" = Die Geburt der Homöopathie! Diese mit 140 Seiten sehr umfangreiche Arbeit Hahnemanns ist das entscheidene, früheste gedruckte Dokument zur Geschichte der Homöopathie! Tischner und Haehl widmen ihm ausführliche Würdigungen - beginnt doch mit dessen Erscheinen eine neue Ära in der Geschichte der neuzeitlichen Heilkunde. "Erst im Jahre 1796 ringt sich Hahnemann die klare Erkenntnis völlig durch, und der neue Weg wird öffentlich vor aller Welt auch schon im Einzelnen mit ganz bestimmten Strichen vorgezeichnet. Der zweite Markstein ist errichtet ... Schwer und heiß hat Hahnemann ... zu ringen gehabt, bis er zu der Erkenntnis gelangte, wie sie uns in dieser Abhandlung entgegentritt ...". Hahnemann veröffentlicht hier diese entscheidenden Sätze:" ... Jedes wirksame Arzneimittel erregt im menschlichen Körper eine Art von eigner Krankheit ... Man ahme die Natur nach, welche zuweilen eine chronische Krankheit durch eine andere hinzukommende heilt, und wende in der zu heilende Krankheit dasjenige Arzneimittel an, welches eine andre, möglichst ähnliche künstliche Krankheit zu erregen im Stande ist, und jene wird geheilt werden Similia similibus (Ähnliches mit Ähnlichem) ..." "Damit ist dem ... alten Heilungsgrundsatz 'Contraria contrariis' zum ersten Mal von Hahnemann der genau formulierte andere Satz gegenübergestellt: 'Similia similibus' ..." Die Arbeit enthält zudem, über dieses neue Postulat hinaus, den ersten, wenn auch noch skizzenhaften Entwurf seiner neuen Lehren, weshalb Haehl (in Fettdruck) konstatiert: "Das Jahr 1796 ist das Geburtsjahr der Homöopathie". Schmit Nr.133 Garrison & Morton Onl. No.6849
