        Spiele zur Uebung und Erholung des Körpers und Geistes, für die Jugend, ihre Erzieher und alle Freunde unschuldiger Jugendfreuden

      Schnepfenthal, Buchhandlung der Erziehungsanstalt, 1796.. Engraved allegorical frontispiece, 4 engraved folding plates on full aprons. pp. XVI, 492, 2 lvs. Contemporary boards. 18 x 11,5 cm.. First edition. - 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. - Rubbed and bumped. Title page with two small stamps verso, first plate with one small stamp verso.

Tres rare contrefacon anglaise publiee immediatement a la suite de l'originale parisienne, imprimee sur papier chiffon teinte, conforme a la description donnee par Adams. Elle reproduit a l'identique toutes les caracteristiques de l'edition originale, sans etre parvenue a eliminer les pratiques des protes anglais, notamment en ce qui concerne les chiffres de presse (cf. Adams). "Le dernier roman de Diderot se veut a la fois une fiction philosophique, une derision du roman classique et l'expression de la prodigieuse diversite d'un esprit ouvert a tous les aspects de la realite humaine. Loin d'etre improvise ou redige a la diable, le recit est agence avec un soin minutieux qui place le createur au coeur meme de l'histoire (...). Il ne fut publie qu'en 1796 sur un manuscrit saisi dans les papiers de Grimm. La singularite de l'oeuvre la rendait inacceptable... Ce n'est qu'au XXe siecle que ce roman a trouve l'audience qu'il meritait" (M. Mortier, in 'Diderot et son temps', n° 146). (Adams, JF2). Cette edition n'est pas representee dans les bibliotheques francaises ni a Oclc. David Adams ne recense que trois exemplaires au total, tous trois en Grande-Bretagne (John Rylands U. Lib. of Manchester, Oxford Bodleian et Taylor Institution). Bel exemplaire, bien relie a l'epoque, tres grand de marges (209 x 125 mm)..

        Die Schildwache. Herausgegeben von Georg Friedrich Rebmann. (Erstes bis) Drittes Stück. In 2 Bänden. Titel, 2 Bl., 154 S.; Titel, 160 S., 1 w. Bl.; 2 Bl., 180 S. Etwas abweichende Pappbde d. Z. (leicht berieben und fleckig) mit späteren gedruckten Rückenschildern.

      Paris (d. i. Altona, Bechtold), 1796-1797.. . Erste Ausgabe aller drei Hefte, die von Rebmann herausgegeben wurden und Beiträge Rebmanns enthalten. Beim Erscheinen des dritten Heftes hatte sich Rebmann bereits von der Zeitschrift distanziert, deren 4. und letztes Heft von "einer Gesellschaft deutscher Männer" (Schütz und Baechtold) herausgegeben wurde und nur noch durch eine Polemik gegen Rebmann auffällt. Bis auf wenige Ausnahmen kann Rebmann als Verfasser aller Artikel dieses Journals gelten, wenn auch sein Einfluss auf die Zusammenstellung der Beiträge offensichtlich gering war. Denn Rebmann hatte vor dem Auslieferungsbegehren der Mainzer Regierung Altona fluchtartig verlassen und in Paris Asyl suchen müssen, von wo aus er die Zeitschrift zu redigieren suchte. Daraus ergab sich die seltsame Situation, dass Rebmann "vor Ort" zu ganz anderen politischen Einsichten kommt, als seine in der Zeitschrift abgedruckten älteren Artikel vermuten lassen. Mit einem Nachruf auf Knigge sowie Beiträgen über 'Tugend nach dem heutigen Wörterbuch', 'Die Thermidorianer', 'Preßfreiheit', 'Dauer und Einfluß der Französischen Republik', das 'Jahresfest der Amerikanischen Freiheit zu Paris', 'Das Selbstbewafnen der deutschen Unterthanen in Schwaben', die 'Theilung Deutschlands', 'französischer und deutscher Adel', Chenier, Mercier u. a., dabei einige Auszüge aus Dokumenten und Briefen etc. - Titel von Heft 1 verso mit durchschlagendem Stempel. Sauber. Nur in wenigen deutschen Bibliotheken im Original nachweisbare sehr seltene Zeitschrift. - Kawa 104.1-3. Jestädt, Vollmer, 153 und 208. Kirchner 1753. Hocks/Schmidt S. 48.

        Deutschlands Flora in Abbildungen nach der Natur mit Beschreibungen.

      1796. Nürnberg, gedrückt auf Kosten der Verfassers, (1796-] 1798-1862. 163 parts (in 136 volumes). Small-8vo (145 x 95mm) With 2336 coloured plates. Publisher's printed wrappers or old wrappers Apart from 4 text leaves which are lacking in the section on phanerogams and replaced by photocopies, and 11 text leaves and the last 2 parts 35 & 36 (containing plates 49-72 and explanatory text) of the section on fungi and also replaced by (coloured) photocopies, a complete set of this rare work. The 'Deutschlands Flora' is composed in 3 different sections. The first one 'Phanerogamen' has 96 parts with 1440 handcoloured engraved plates, the second section 'Cryptogamen' has 31 parts with 416 handcoloured engraved plates and the third part 'Pilze' has 36 parts with 480 coloured plates. A complete set has not been on the market since decades. Jacob Sturm (1771 -1848) may be considered the most famous engraver of entomological and botanical scientific publications in Germany at the end of the 18th and beginning of the 19th century. During this period Nürnberg still was the centre of fine natural history book production in Germany. Sturm became a great collector of insects and founded the Nürnberg Society for Natural History. His plates are very delicately drawn and depict the smallest details and enjoyed a great popularity among naturalists. As most of his works were published in a small format, they could be purchased by a larger public. "The book contains... neat and attractive little engravings, no more than 5 in. by 3 1/2 in. in size... He thus deliberately chose this minute format in order to make a knowledge of the German flora available by pictures to as many as possible and as cheaply as possible. Despite their smallness, they carry a surprising amount of detail. Jacob Sturm learnt his art from his father, Johann Georg Sturm, who was also a Nuremberg engraver" (Blunt & Stearn p.258-260).

        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. Lowndes, Bibliographer's Manual, Volume II, page 1240: "It is a work which must always preserve its high place among the classics of England; the author was a first-rate master of the art of rhetorical invective".

        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]
