        View of London from Greenwich Park

      London,: , 1796. London,, 1796. Aquatint, 33 x 55.5 cms, engraved by Joseph Stadler after Joseph Farington, black and white, blank verso, folded for inclusion in a smaller work, 2.5 cm tear closed top left. Boydell, by the 1790’s a prosperous publisher and printseller, commissioned the landscape artist Joseph Farington to to preprare paintings for a History of the River Thames which was in part a celebration of Boydell’s election as Lord Mayor. The work was popular and Adams notes that versions of the plates are found on paper watermarked twenty years later. Tooley suggests a reissue of 1831-4 and the paper of our example has a watermark dated 1828. Print

        Convent of St. Saba, April 4th 1839 (Engedi)

      F.G. Moon, London - Dramatic view overlooking the Greek Orthodox Convent or Monastery of St. Saba near Bethlehem, from David Roberts' "Views in the Holy Land, Syria, Idumea, Arabia, Egypt and Nubia". Born in Scotland, Roberts (1796-1864) gained renown as a landscape artist from documenting his extensive travels through Spain and the Near and Middle East.

        Man As He Is: A Novel in Four Volumes

      Printed for William Lane, London 1796 - 4 vols. vi, 252, 210, 242, 240 p. 16 cm. Second edition. Rebound in navy cloth. Discreet library markings from Harvard University Library. Harvard crest on spine. Donation bookplate stamped released, with original spine labels. Vol. 2: small hole p. 149, tear in edge of p. 155, 169. Minor spots. Bage's novels may not interest strongly by their plot, but there is a distinct originality about them. They were chiefly intended to inculcate certain political and philosophical opinions. He was deeply impressed by the French revolution, and the effects of the new principles are clearly traceable in his works. Considered altogether apart from their moral and social bearings, the novels of Bage display an unquestionable power in drawing and developing character, while their style is always entertaining and frequently incisive. This title is considered his best work. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Collected edition 1796, 2 volumes, complete set, 8vo, approximately 240 x 145 mm, 9¼ x 5½ inches, engraved additional title pages to each volume with vignette and dated 1797, 16 engraved portrait plates depicting famous political figures, including Edmund Burke, John Wilkes, Judge Blackstone, Lord Mansfield, the Duke of Grafton and George III, pages: (1), xl, (4), 325; (1), 366, including notes at rear of each volume and index at end of Volume II, wide margins, bound in full contemporary straight grained red morocco, gilt ruled border to covers, spine with 5 double raised bands with gilt rules and bands, lettered gilt, all edges gilt, gilt inner dentelles (turn ins), marbled endpapers. Spines faded, head and tail of spines slightly rubbed, a touch of rubbing to corners, one or two minor marks to covers, 2 tiny indentations on upper cover of Volume II, engraved title pages and most plates lightly foxed in the margins, contents otherwise clean, bindings tight and firm. A very good set. Junius was the pseudonym of the author of letters published in a London newspaper, The Public Advertiser, from January 1769 to January 1772, attacking George III and some of his ministers, especially the Duke of Grafton, Sir William Draper and Lord Mansfield, for the harm he saw being inflicted on the constitution. He is thought by some to be Sir Philip Francis M. P. secretary to Lord Chatham. The first authorised collected edition was published in 1772 and was followed by numerous editions up to the 1850s.

        Usus Logarithmorum Infinitomii in Theoria aequationum

      One folding printed table. 1 p.l., 46 pp., one leaf of errata. Large 4to, orig. semi-stiff drab boards (extremities a bit rubbed). Leipzig: C.T. Rabenhorst, 1796. A remarkable discovery: this is essentially a workbook of the young and precocious Carl Friedrich Gauss, signed and dated by him "C. F. Gauss Sept. 7, 1796" on the inner front cover, at which time he was a 19-year old student in Göttingen. Gauss has not only studied the text carefully, making several corrections to the text, but has also made use of two blank pages at the end to carry out exercises (described in detail below). Mathematical manuscripts of Gauss are of the greatest rarity on the market, especially from his early formative years. Moritz von Prasse (1769-1814), was the son of Johann Moritz Prasse, who worked as a mediator in the Seven Years' War at the Court of Catherine the Great in St. Petersburg (and according to some sources may have been her lover). His service led to his family's elevation to the nobility on 31 July 1790. Prasse studied mathematics at the University of Leipzig, graduating in 1795, and rising to become professor there in 1799. He became a member of the Jablonowski Society in 1807 and maintained a correspondence on mathematical topics with Goethe. The great geometer August Ferdinand Möbius was among his students. Apart from the present work, his first, he also published De Reticules Cryptographicis (1799), a method of encrypting messages using rotating dials, and a set of Logarithmischen Tafeln in 1810. His extensive library of works on mathematics was bequeathed to his university on his death in 1814. The present work by Prasse is concerned with the "polynomial theorem," a generalization of the binomial theorem: whereas the binomial theorem gives a series expansion for powers of the sum of two terms, the polynomial theorem treats the sum of any finite (or even an infinite) number of terms. The formula was first proved by Carl Hindenburg (1741-1808), the founder of the modern theory of combinatorics. It has been known at least since the work of Pascal that the coefficients in the binomial expansion can be interpreted as numbers of combinations, and Hindenburg showed that the coefficients occurring in the polynomial theorem also had a combinatorial interpretation. He believed that this result could be used to provide a combinatorial basis for the whole of the theory of functions, and gathered around him a group of disciples, which became known as the "Combinatorial School," to develop and propagate this idea. This School included Prasse, as well as Johann Friedrich Pfaff, who became Gauss's teacher after he moved to Helmstedt in 1798. Although the Combinatorial School did not produce the significant advances Hindenburg had hoped for, it "was influential in Germany at the turn of the 19th century and became the basis of the mathematical syllabus of the Prussian gymnasium in the Humboldt educational system."-Jahnke, p. 265 (see below for citation). In this atmosphere it would have been natural for the young Gauss to have been required to study Prasse's work, one of the most recently published products of the Combinatorial School. Both of the exercises worked out by Gauss deal, like Prasse's work, with series expansions. The first exercise develops a series expansion of the indefinite integral of (1 - xn)-½ over the interval from 0 to 1, in increasing powers of 1/n (Gauss does not specify the range of integration but this is evident from the context). Gauss writes down the answer without explanation, presumably because the intermediate steps were so straightforward for him that he was able to carry them out mentally. His answer can be obtained by first expanding (1 - xn)-½ in increasing powers of xn and then integrating term by term. This yields terms involving 1/n + 1, 1/2n + 1, etc, which are then expanded in increasing powers of 1/n using the binomial theorem. Collecting powers of 1/n gives Gauss's series expansion of the integral. The coefficients of the powers of 1/n in this expansion are themselves infinite series, which Gauss sums by cleverly expressing them as definite integrals, which he then evaluates directly (again Gauss gives no explanation or working, but the integrals can be evaluated by standard methods with which Gauss was obviously very familiar). In the second exercise Gauss obtains a series expansion of ϕ(t + U), where U is a function of another variable u, in increasing powers of u. This can be done using Taylor's theorem, although this is not quite straightforward as the derivatives of ϕ(t + U) with respect to u have to be evaluated using the chain rule. Again it is evident that the exercise was nevertheless a simple matter for Gauss as the (correct) answer is written down without explanation or any intermediate steps (although there is one correction!). In fact, Gauss is actually treating a multi-variable case: the presence of multiple Σs indicates that he is treating a case in which ϕ is a function of several variables x1, x2,...,xn, but this does not cause him any difficulty. Gauss has also made, as mentioned above, corrections on the following pages: 1, 3, 4, 8, 9, 11, 13, 14, 16, 20, and 21. Fine and fresh condition. Preserved in a handsome black morocco-backed box. With the stamps of the "Gauss-Bibliothek" and the Royal Observatory at Göttingen on title with release stamp date 15 October 1951 on facing endpaper. ❧ Poggendorff II, 518. Tomash Library P108. See H. N. Jahnke, "Algebraic Analysis in Germany 1780-1840" in Historia Mathematica 20, pp. 265-284 for a detailed account of the work of the Combinatorial School. .

        Letters Written During A Short Residence in Sweden, Norway, and Denmark

      London Printed for J. Johnson 1796 - First Edition of Wollstonecraft's Scandinavian Letters WOLLSTONECRAFT, Mary. Letters Written During A Short Residence in Sweden, Norway, and Denmark. London: Printed for J. Johnson, 1796. First edition. Octavo (7 15/16 x 4 7/8 inches; 201 x 124 mm.). [4], 262, [4] pp. Contemporary half calf over marbled boards. Spine stamped and lettered in gilt. Edges dyed brown. Corners rubbed. Front outer hinge, cracked but firm. Head of the tail a bit chipped. Previous owner's old ink signature on front free endpaper and lightly on title-page. Some light browning to leaves. Overall a very good copy. This is the original edition of narratives that comprise the first published account in English of a woman travelling on business. The work also had a profound affect on the personal life of its author, and it was well received by its contemporary reading audience. Tomalin reports that "when Johnson published the Letters, they found an enthusiastic public, not least among young poets." The book describes a journey taken through Scandinavia by Wollstonecraft (1759-97) accompanied by her infant daughter Fanny and a nurse. The landscapes, towns, and inns generally made a pleasant impression on the author, as did the people, particularly the humble classes, and she is skilled at paining a picture of the scenes through which she passed. As one who promoted social reforms in England, Wollstonecraft describes the society and customs of the Scandinavians as in general more progressive than in her homeland. She also touches on government and the military, which she finds a somewhat oppressive presence. She was travelling to promote the business interests of the American lover she had met in Paris, Fanny's, Filbert Imlay. Wollstonecraft was shattered by the collapse of the relationship, but this book helped her find a new love, for the radical William Godwin declared that "if ever there was a book calculated to make a man in love with its author, this appears to be the book." Wollstonecraft and Godwin married in 1797. Windle A7a. HBS 66291. $1,250 [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        LA DIVINA COMMEDIA

      Parma: Nel Regal Palazzo, 1796. The Large Quarto Edition (there was a folio edition published the same year). Hardcover. The Bodoni Dante in Remarkably Fine Condition and in a Lovely New Binding. 318 x 235 mm (12 1/2 x 9 1/4"). Three volumes. Edited by Giovanni Jacopo Dionisi. The Large Quarto Edition (there was a folio edition published the same year). VERY FINE REPLICA BINDINGS OF DEEP BLUE STRAIGHT-GRAIN MOROCCO, HANDSOMELY GILT, by Courtland Benson, raised bands, covers gilt with a wide frame of interlocking drawer handle tools accented with small flowers, inner floral roll frame with oblique tulip cornerpieces, raised bands, spine panels with elaborate gilt fleuron centerpiece, gilt titling, marbled endpapers, top edges gilt, others untrimmed. Brooks 654; Koch I, 12. Except for faint pinpoint foxing on the title page of the second volume and trivial smudges here and there, AN ESPECIALLY FINE, FRESH COPY WITH VAST MARGINS, and in unworn, particularly attractive, and convincing retrospective bindings. This is an especially tall copy--with leaves measuring 305 x 230 mm.--of the quarto edition of Bodoni's Dante, considered by Brooks to be as beautiful as the folio version (which he described as "Bellissima"). The same elegant format and typeface are used, and the two editions differ only in pagination. The most celebrated European printer of his era, Giambatista Bodoni (1740-1813) worked for more than 20 years at the royal press in Parma before obtaining permission to set up his own private press in 1791. Brooks says, "He took his printing in all its branches very seriously, laboured incessantly to perfect his type, had a fine artistic sense, . . . and produced books not only of a very high standard, but also showing a remarkably distinct individuality. . . . The result of his labours is a long list of books which . . . reach a very high, many of them the highest, level of technical excellence." Editor Giovanni Jacopo Dionisi based the text of the present edition on the manuscript of Filippo Villani, who had been appointed as the Florentine public reader of the "Divine Comedy" in 1392. Neither version of the Bodoni Dante is common in the marketplace: ABPC records just five copies, both folio and quarto, at auction since 1975, and only one since 1988. Although the bindings are new, they are faithful to the period and executed with great skill and very considerable aesthetic success.

        The Bridge over the River Gallions, from the foot of Fort Matilda, Guadaloupe

      London: Willyams, 1796. Aquatint by Samuel Alken. 12 1/8 x 18 3/4 inches. The Reverend Cooper Willyams (1762-1816) was a topographer and artist, as well as minister and chaplain. The son of a British naval commander, he went to Cambridge, was ordained and contributed to "Topographical Miscellanies" before going to sea as Chaplain on the Boyne in 1793. England was at war with revolutionary France, and the Boyne participated in the West Indies' action of that war. In 1796, Willyams returned to London and published An Account of the Campaign in the West Indies..., which was illustrated with six drawings by Willyams, rendered in aquatint by Samuel Alken. This view on Guadeloupe was taken just outside Fort Matilda where Willyams served as chaplain. From his commanding position but minimizing the fortress as a geographical figure, Willyams gives a rich view of the lush hills and the rushing river below.

        Chapel of the Convent of St. Saba April 5th 1839

      London: F.G. Moon. unbound. very good. Louis Haghe. View. Tinted lithograph with hand coloring, mounted on card, as issued. Image measures 9.5" x 13 3/8", sheet measures 16.5" x 23.75". Beautifully colored interior view from David Roberts' "Views in the Holy Land, Syria, Idumea, Arabia, Egypt and Nubia". Born in Scotland, Roberts (1796-1864) gained renown as a landscape artist from documenting his extensive travels through Spain and the Near and Middle East. His most well known work, "Views in the Holy Land...Egypt and Nubia" illustrates Roberts' trip in 1838-39. The subsequent publication was issued in 41 parts between 1842 and 1849. This magnificent set was a collaborative project between Roberts and the skilled printer Louis Haghe (1806-1885) and is recognized as one of the most important lithographic works of the 19th century. This particular print comes from the deluxe subscribers edition, which was issued without text and the illustrations mounted to evoke the original watercolors of his sketchbook. The Greek Orthodox Convent or Monastery of St. Saba is in the Kidron Valley in the West Bank near Bethlehem. Minor aging along edges, image unaffected.

        Lund, Joh.

      Lundblad, 1796. 8:o. 36,+ 328,+ (2) s. Enstaka småfläckar. Häftad, i samtida stänkmarmorerat pappomslag, med handskriven ryggetikett, röda stänksnitt. Äldre namnteckning, daterad 1814. Hesse 1362. Setterwall 5071. Den normalt sett både lärde och noggranne Adolf Modeer (1739- 99), lantmätare, historiker och författare, gjorde tämligen illa ifrån sig vad gällde numimatiken; "I svensk numismatik intar Modeers arbete 1796 den negativa rangplatsen som väl den sämsta och löjligaste produkten på området", skanderade Bengt Hildebrand. I tämligen okritisk antikvariskt nit inleder Modeer sin myntkronologi med Oden och Tor. Högberg konstaterar dock att trots alla sina brister ger boken en intressant läsning ännu idag. Adolf Modeer egna stora myntsamling hamnade till stor del i Härnösands gymnasium

        [COPPER ENGRAVING PLATE OF A PORTRAIT OF ALEXANDER HAMILTON]

      New York. [1796].. Copper plate, 7 3/4 x 6 1/4 inches. Minor wear and soiling. Near fine. Copper engraving plate of a portrait of Alexander Hamilton, Founding Father and first Treasury Secretary. The image shows a bust-length portrait of Hamilton in military dress, facing left (facing right when printed), framed in an oval decorated with flags and greenery with a banner beneath it that reads "Camillus." The imprint line reads, "Painted by Walter Robertson. Engraved by George Graham for James Rivington New- York." This is the second state of the image, with the date erased. Walter Robertson (ca. 1750-1802) was an Irish miniature painter and friend of Gilbert Stuart who spent some brief time in New York, from 1793 to 1795. This engraving was taken from a miniature painted by Robertson in 1795 (since lost to history), and engraved and printed the following year. The printer, James Rivington, is usually described as a Loyalist because he remained in New York printing for the British throughout their occupation of the city, 1776- 1783, often producing strongly worded Loyalist publications. However, he remained unmolested as a New York printer after the British departed, and it is now generally believed he was a very effective Patriot spy. Original copper printing plates from 18th-century America are quite rare, since they were generally recycled. STAUFFER 1163.
