      Firenze 1796 - Rara veduta prospettiva della città, presa dal ponte San Giorgio, raffigurata durante l'assedio del 1796, iniziato da Napoleone Bonaparte, contro la guarnigione asutriaca che si arrese nel febbraio dell'anno seguente.

        Prospetto della Città di Mantova dalla Parte del Borgo S. Giorgio e della Cittadella

      Firenze 1796 - Dalla descrizione di Daniela Ferrari in "Mantova nelle stampe": La carta presenta una visuale molto vasta e al tempo steso minuziosa e dettagliata. Illustra le fasi dell'assedio francese:in primo piano il generale Bonaparte riceve i parlamentari austriaci, compaiono poi le retroguardie e gli schieramenti delle truppe. Sullo sfondo è raffigurata la città sottoposta ai cannoneggiamneti delle batterie francesi, disposte su zatteroni galleggianti e si vedono i borghi di S. Giorgio e di Porto con i rispettivi ponti; particolare curioso è il pallone aereostatico in alto a destra che avrebbe dovuto essere innalzato dai Francesi per dirigere le operazioni belliche. L'opera deriva da un disegno dal vivo di Basilio Lasionio, inciso da Carlo Lasinio. Incisione in rame, in ottimo stato di conservazione. Molto rara.

        An Enquiry concerning Political Justice, and its Influence on Morals and Happiness.

      London: Printed for C. G. and J. Robinson,, 1796 & 1797. The Second Edition, Corrected. In two volumes. [Together with:] The Enquirer. Reflections on Education, Manners, and Literature. In a series of Essays. 2 works in 3 volumes, octavo (210 x 128 mm). Early 19th-century diced calf backed marbled boards, spines gilt in compartements with titles direct, sun tools and King "K" insignia gilt, green silk bookmarkers. With the half-titles in each volume. Spines somewhat sunned, light rubbing to extremities and some scuffs and marks to sides, otherwise an extraordinarily fresh and sound set in excellent condition. First octavo edition of Political Justice, second overall and revised by the author, together with the first edition of The Enquirer, the set from the library of William King, 8th Baron King, 1st Earl of Lovelace, 1st Viscount Ockham (1805-1893), with the King "K" insignia to the spines, his ownership inscription ("Ockham King") to the title page of the Enquirer, and his hand corrections to the title page of Political Justice, so that it reads: "An Enquiry concerning Political + Jacobinical Justice, and its influence on Morals and Misery by Citizen William Godwin". The front free endpaper in each volume has the ink library stamp of Ben Damph Forest, King's sporting lodge. King is most notable for being the husband of Ada Lovelace, the daughter of the poet Lord Byron and the first ever computer programmer, who worked closely with Charles Babbage. The front free endpaper and first blank of The Enquirer each bear a sketched pencil portrait of a woman most likely in the family, though it is unlikely to be Ada. First published in 1793, in two large quarto volumes, Political Justice was of the most radical and far-reaching books of the years of revolution at the end of the 18th century, by the founder of philosophical anarchism. Published just weeks after the execution of Louis XVI, Godwin's tract attacks all restraints on the exercise of individual judgement – in the belief that human opinions will become progressively more enlightened with the growth of knowledge. Among Godwin's targets were established religion and marriage, and he believed that government itself would ultimately become redundant. The book still speaks today for its eloquent defence of human liberty, but its contemporary influence was profound and lasting, coming quickly to represent the "Jacobinical" (as King has scoffingly put it) thrust of the Age of Revolutions. Godwin, for all his lack of worldly success, was the epicentre of English radicalism. He subsequently married the most discussed, admired, criticized, and mythologized feminist intellectual in history, Mary Wollstonecraft; inspired and infuriated Percy Bysshe Shelley, who bankrolled him then eloped with his daughter Mary, future author of Frankenstein; and published, among many others, Lamb's Tales from Shakespeare and works illustrated by William Blake. As a text Political Justice had one hugely influential if contrary result: it directly inspired Malthus to formulate his Essay on Population. The second edition as here was revised by the Godwin, with some of the most extreme ideas modulated. It is here smartly bound together for King with the first edition of The Enquirer (by which Malthus was also influenced), a collection of essays published in the following year in which Godwin continued to explore and qualify the ideas of Political Justice, and as such an appropriate addition.

        Broadside] Las grandes ventajas y utilidades que prepara a los Habitantes de este Reyno la libre fabrica y uso del Aguardiente de Cana concedido por Real Orden.

      December 31, 1796, Mexico City - Double folio sheet, 24 x 16 in, printed on one side only. Branciforte was viceroy from 1794 - 1798. He is considered one of the most corrupt that ever ruled New Spain. This proclamation, very nicely printed, affirms the king's desire to restore the making and selling of rum in the colony, which had been proscribed for several years -- this, the venal marquis notes, is out of the king's piety and the goodness of heart! (It is to be noted that aguardiente de cana covers not only the production of rum, but also pulque: it is very likely that the prohibition of the "fabrica y uso" was so unpopular as to be unenforceable. Further, the marquis as viceroy, though he is aware that there has been much illegal use of the drink, will give anyone guilty of making or selling rum three days from the publication of this proclamation, to report to customs and thus be exempt from the penalties accrued during the time of prohibition. With the rubric of the Viceroy and the full signature of his secretary, Josef Ign. Negreyros y Soria. Quite scarce: no record at auction or OCLC, although there is a copy noted of the royal proclamation itself, issued also by Branciforte. Fine copy.

        Specimens of Arabian Poetry, from the Earliest Time to the Extinction of the Khalifat, with Some Account of the Authors.

      Cambridge: Printed by John Burges Printer to the University, 1796 - Large octavo (226 × 182 mm) Early 19th-century half calf, marbled boards, neatly rebacked to style with the original red morocco label laid down, gilt rolls forming compartments, edges sprinkled blue. Lightly rubbed on the boards, corners professionally restored, internally a lightly browned and with occasional spotting, but overall a clean and carefully refurbished copy, presenting well. Sheet of musical notation, text in Arabic types, engraved head- and tailpieces. First edition, second issue with a cancel title page; copies noted dated 1795. Carlyle was educated at Carlisle Grammar School and Cambridge, and while at Queens "profited from the instructions of a native of Baghdad, who passed in Britain under the name David Zamio. As a result, Carlyle became so proficient in oriental languages that he was appointed professor of Arabic on the resignation of Dr Craven in 1795" (Stanley Lane-Poole in ODNB). In 1799 Carlyle was appointed chaplain to Lord Elgin's mission to Constantinople and made an extensive tour through Asia Minor, Palestine, Greece, and Italy, collecting Greek and Syriac manuscripts for a proposed new version of the New Testament, which he did not live to accomplish. On his return to England in 1801 he was presented to the living of Newcastle upon Tyne, but his health had been undermined by the exertions of his expedition, and he died in 1804. Lane-Poole describes the present translation as "well-respected". Hamilton, The Arcadian Library 8444; Gay 3436. [Attributes: First Edition]

First Edition of the first dermatological work with color plates, complete as published. With the inscription presented by "Dr. Wm. Osler" - - "There were not two editions of the volume, but only of the first three parts; and volumes found today may be made from the original and revised texts in differing proportions. The parts were issued with a cover-title "The description and treatment of cutaneous diseases, which was superseded by the new title "On cutaneous diseases" which appeared on the title-page for the volume published in 1808" F.M.Sutherland, J Hist. Med., Jan. 1958, p.94 - This copy consists from the extreme rare first issue of the first installment, and the first editions of the second, third, and fourth installment; and has the extreme rare content sheet. - Besides the few minor faults, the stamps verso of the plates, the foxing on 8 pages and considering the rarity and importance of this item, I consider this as an fine copy. - Modern dermatology may be said to start with Robert Willan (1757-1812). His classification of skin diseases gained him the Forthergillian Medal of the Medical Society of London in 1790. He established a definite classical nomenclature which is still more or less in use today. - Includes original description of prurigo mitis; under the name "ichtyosis cornea" Willan quoted Crusio's case of scleroderma; Willan also established psoriasis as a separate skin disease. - - Garrison & Morton No.3985; 4018 [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

James Plumptre was a "playwright and Church of England clergyman. Like his elder sisters Anne Plumptre and Annabella (Bell) Plumptre, James began his writing life in the Enfield circle and the theatre group in Norwich.Plumptre was not as politically engaged as his two literary sisters, and he was concerned for drama as a moral educator who wished to improve its tone." (Oxford Dictionary of National Biography). "A more coherent pattern of possibly allusive design was discerned in the time of Scott and Goethe by James Plumptre: he pointed out the resemblance of murdering a king in his orchard and marrying his queen within a few months to the murder of Lord Darnley by the Earl of Bothwell, who thereupon married Queen Mart of Scotland, in 1567."

        The Holy Land, Syria, Idumea, Arabia, Egypt, + Nubia. After Lithographs by Louis Hache from Drawings made on the Spot by David Roberts, RA, with historical Descriptions by the Revd. George Croly. 6 vols.

      Mit 241 getönten lithographierten Tafeln, 2 Stahlstich-Karten sowie 6 getönten lithogr. Titeln mit Vignetten. 4 (29,5 x 20,5 cm). OLeinen mit Deckel- und Rückenvergoldung, goldgepr. zentraler Wappenvignette auf beiden Deckeln sowie dreiseitigem Goldschnitt. D. Roberts (1796-1864), "gehört zu den geschätztesten Architekturmalern der neueren Zeit" (Thieme/B. 28, 428) vorliegende Ansichten aus dem Nahen Osten, Arbeitsergebnisse einer Reise in den Jahren 1838 und 1839, erschienen zuerst ab 1842 in Imperial-Folio und mit Handkolorierung der damals 118 Tafel und 120 Textillustrationen als 41 Lieferungen im Zeitraum von 7 Jahren. Roberts war einer der ersten Künstler, der nicht nach Hörensagen, Skizzen und Berichten anderer Illustrationen fertigte, sondern nach eigener Anschauung arbeitete. Als früherer Theatermaler war er sich der Wirkung von Inszenierungen bewußt, die er hier, in seiner zweiten Schaffensphase angelangt, und zuerst als Aquarell mit sicherem, feinem Strich aufs Papier brachte. Das Werk insgesamt ist sowohl ein Höhepunkt der lithographischen Buchillustration wie der ästhetischen Aneignung des (antiken) Orients durch Europa es liegt hier in der zweiten Ausgabe vor. Der Text stammt von George Croly (1780-1860), einem irisch-englischen Schriftsteller (Drama, Lyrik, Roman) und Historiker, seinerzeit bekannt, einflußreich und als Geistlicher seit 1835 Rektor von St. Stephen Walbrook in London. Auch bei ihm ist das Wissen um die theatralische Wirkung von Inszenierungen vorauszusetzen, wobei es faktisch unterfüttert ist von historischen Kenntnissen. Etwas berieben und bestoßen papierbedingt gebräunt teils stockfleckig Besitzvermerk auf Vorsätzen auf hinterem Spiegel mit Buchbindermarke: "Bound by Leighton Son and Hodge". Bd 1: oberes Kapital mit Einriss und knittrig Innengelenke angeplatzt Titelporträt auf Vorsatz montiert Titel und ein Textblatt am Rand mit Klebefilm unschön verstärkt (verfärbt).

Qualche sporadico segno d'inchiostro, lieve alone a poche carte, margine bianco della carta A1 asportato.

L'opera, tra cosmogonia massonica e totale condanna del Cristianesimo, fa tabula rasa dell'esistente per una costruzione ex novo del mondo, nella pretesa di fungere da manifesto fondativo delle futura Repubblica universale.
