        Entwickelung des Ifflandischen Spiels in vierzehn Darstellungen auf dem weimarischen Hoftheater im Aprilmonath 1796. XVI, 407 S. Guter Pappbd d. Z. mit Rückentitel und Rückenvergoldung.

      Leipzig, G. J. Göschen, 1796. - Sehr seltene erste Ausgabe. Beschreibt Iffland in vierzehn verschiedenen Rollen, vielfach in eigenen Stücken, u. a. auch als Franz Moor in Schillers Räubern bzw. Egmont in Goethes gleichnamigem Schauspiel. Böttiger (1760-1835), der gelehrte klassische Philologe, Archäologe und Berater Goethes, versucht, in dieser seiner ersten selbständigen Veröffentlichung "einem so schnell vorübergehenden, nur in der veränderlichsten Mannigfaltigkeit und in der stets wechselnden Aufeinanderfolge gegründeten Kunstwerke ein dauerhafteres Andenken" zu stiften (S. VI/VII), wie ja auch "Franzosen und Engländer ihre großen Schauspieler in einzelnen sehr interessanten Situationen abgebildet und vervielfältigt" haben. August Wilhelm Iffland war neben A. v. Kotzebue einer der erfolgreichste Dramatiker und Schauspieler seiner Zeit. Weimar erlebte unter Goethes Direktion mehr als 350 Aufführungen von über 30 Stücken Ifflands. Auf vier Gastspielreisen trat Iffland auch selbst in Weimar auf. So gab er im Frühjahr 1796 vierzehn Vorstellungen, die Böttiger aufmerksam verfolgt hat. In seiner Publikation bietet er dem Leser "einzelne Beleuchtungen und tiefer eindringende Zergliederungen" von elf Rollen Ifflands während seines Weimarer Gastspiels. – Gutes Exemplar. – Goed.

        Cours de géométrie pratique professé par M. Prevost et suivi par C.F. Frenet. Comprenant 1o. La géométrie élémentaire avec ses applications au toisé, au cubage, géodésie, etc. 2o. La géométrie descriptive avec ses applications à la perspective, à la coupe des pierres etc.[Lyon?, ca. 1825?]. Oblong folio (35 x 45 cm). With a flourished calligraphic title-page signed "[Charles] Esclozas scripsit", and 140 leaves with more than 350 figures in black ink and sometimes pencil, red ink or coloured washes (blue, yellow, red, green and grey), illustrating plain and solid geometry, projections, perspective, architecture, bridges, cartography, globes, sundials, etc., and with text and illustrations in black thick-thin borders. Contemporary green half morocco, spine richly gold-tooled.

      Complete and thoroughly illustrated course of practical plane and solid geometry (including conic and other sections), with applications to projections, perspective, surveying, bridges, architecture and stone masonry, cartography, geodesy and globes, sundials, etc. The title suggests it was a series of lectures by "M. Prevost" (it is not clear whether "M" is an initial or merely means "monsieur"), followed by C.F. Frenet, who apparently wrote up Prévost's lectures and drew the finely executed illustrations. The texts are mostly captions to the figures in the illustrations and are usually keyed to them with numbers. The title-page divides the text into two numbered parts. The first (géométrie élémentaire) has 5 subdivisions (géométrie élémentaire, geodésie graphique, du plan, surface des solides, cubature des corps), and the second (géométrie descriptive) has 8 subdivisions (problemes & plans tangens, sections, poliedres, developpemens, construire une mappe-monde, gnomonique & cadrans, coupe des pierres, perspective). The extent of the course suggests it continued for more than one year. Frenet probably set down Prévost's words and sketched his illustrations during the lectures, but made the present fair copies of both at home afterward. The ninth plate includes the captions of figures 73 to 80 in a trompe l'oeil drawing of a piece of paper as if it were attached with sealing wax and had its corners curling up.We have not been able to identify Prévost or Frenet, but the calligrapher who executed the title-page was almost certainly Charles Esclozas/Esclosas (ca. 1796-1839), who worked in his native Lyon from 1823 to his death, so the manuscript probably originated in or near Lyon. A few leaves are bound out of order. The ink of the flourishes at the head of the title-page has eaten through the paper, and in a couple illustration leaves the paper has torn along a border line (in one case with loss of the fore-edge margin). The title-page and last leaf are creased and a few leaves show browning or foxing, but most leaves remain in very good condition. The binding is rubbed and the hinges worn, but the tooling on the spine remains clear. A manuscript course of practical geometry with finely executed illustrations, perhaps prepared for publication but never published.

        Haute Cour De Justice. Copie Des Pieces Saisies Dans Le Local Que Baboeuf Occupoit Lors De Son Arrestation [2 Vols, True Crime, Emperor Maximilian Of Mexico's Bookplates]

      A Paris: De L'Imprimerie Nationale.. Very Good with no dust jacket. c1796-7. First Edition. Hardcover. 334, 334 pages; [France] Haute Cour De Justice. COPIE DES PIECES Saisies dans le local que Baboeuf occupoit lors de son arrestation. 2 Vols. Vol I's title: SUITE DE LA COIPIE DES PIECES A Paris, De L Imprimerie Nationale. [Vol 1] Frimaire, an. V; [Vol 2] Nivose, an V. [3rd and 4th month of French Republican calendar. Vol I: Nov. 21 - Dec. 20, 1796. Vol II: Dec. 21, 1796 to Jan. 19, 1797. ] Vol I with the bookplate of Emperor Maximilian of Mexico (who was in power 1864-1867). Vol I: 334 pp. Vol II: 334 pp. Vols I and II with bookplate of J M Andrade. For several months beginning in March 1791, Francois-Noel Baboeuf (also "Babeuf") held offices within the Revolutionary French government (a commissioner of national property and a member of the council-general of Somme). At Somme, he was accused of altering a name on a deed for government land, and fled to Paris. Meanwhile, he was sentenced in absentia to 20 years in prison. On Sep. 3, 1794, he began publishing Journal De La Liberte De La Presse, Retitled Le Tribun Du Peupl Beginning with its Oct. 5 issue. He used the newspaper as an outlet for his opposition to private property and his desire to use politics to achieve equality of outcome. In February 1795 at least one issue of Le Tribune Du Peuple fell victim to a book burning. Issue 40 defended the perpetrators of the September Massacre (several years earlier, in 1792). The Bureau Centrale's spies had repeatedly implicated Baboeuf in various crimes involving advocacy of violence against the government. Baboeuf was arrested on May 10, 1796, the day before socialists were allegedly planning to begin a rebellion. The trial began Feb. 20. Baboeuf was sentenced May 20, and decapitated the next day. 8vo. Blue 1/4 leather and marbled board, marbled eps. Bound for Mexican book collector J. M. Andrade, whose small bookplate appears at the upper left corner of both front pastedowns (with motto Inter Folia Fructus). Andrade sold his collection to Emperor Maximilian for the new Royal Library. Maximilian's armorial bookplate appears at the center of Vol I's front pastedown. Very good. 1.8 Lb. Allegorical title vignette. (19.5 x 12 cm). Baboeuf (1760-1797) was an avid revolutionary publicist and one of the first who wanted to introduce a real socialism. Of course this could only end on the scaffold. The two volumes gather documents which were found at Baboeuf's arrest and which are to be the head of a conspiracy. 1st and only edition. ; 0 .

        Veduta della Città e Piazza di Mantova dalla parte del Ponte San Giorgio cintad'assedio dall'Armata Francese, e difesa dalla Guarnigione Austriaca l'An: 1796

      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. In basso, una rubrica con 22 rimandi ai luoghi principali riportato. L'intento principale dell'autore è la rappresentazione dell'assedio, illustrato in modo vivace e movimentato, per cui la veduta della città sullo sfondo è abbastanza approssimativa. Oltre alla cupola di S. Andrea, non sono riconoscibili le numerose architetture emergenti, nel tipico stile della veduta tedesca del periodo inaugurata da F. B. Werner. Acquaforte e acquatinata a colori, con coloritura coeva, alcuni strappi restaurati nel margine inferiore, per il resto in ottime condizioni.

        A LETTER TO THE PEOPLE OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, FROM GEORGE WASHINGTON, ON HIS RESIGNATION OF THE OFFICE OF THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES

      London: J. Debrett, 1796. 32pp. Modern plain wrappers. Small hole in leaf C1 (apparently a paper flaw) affecting five words of text, three of which have been supplied in early manuscript. Early manuscript notes on several pages (see below), portion of early ownership signature on titlepage. Very good. One of two initial London printings of Washington's Farewell Address done in 1796, the same year that it was first published in Philadelphia. The other London 1796 edition was published by J. Moxon. Of the two publishing houses, Debrett appears to have been the more successful, and he produced two more editions by the end of the year. The text's popularity was immediate, and it was quickly reprinted in Edinburgh, Dublin, Glasgow, and elsewhere. Designed by Washington and his principal advisors in drafting it, James Madison and Alexander Hamilton, as both a valedictory and advice to succeeding generations, the address served as a guidepost to Americans from the point of its publication. In it Washington stresses the importance of the preservation of the Union; urges moderation of political factions, reconciliation of regional differences and avoidance of foreign "entanglements"; urges that the nation be prepared, but only fight in self-defense; and supports the principal of the voluntary retirement of the president after two terms. The most influential presidential address ever delivered, looked to as a guidepost of American policy into modern times. This copy has interesting manuscript underlining by an early English reader, often highlighting passages referring to liberty and patriotism. SABIN 101566. GROLIER AMERICAN 100, 60. ESTC T109655.

        Il sensibile influsso degli astri convinto di falsita'. Dissertazione fisico-critica

      Pel Cannetti alla Rotonda per andare a S. Ignazio, 1796. In 8 (cm 14 x 22,5), pp. XV + (1) di errata + 254 con tabelle da pagina 213 a pagina 224 con misurazioni barometriche e stato meteorologico per i giorni di ciascun mese dell'anno. Bruniture sparse alle pagine, piu' presenti alle carte di sguardia iniziale e finale, poi meno insistenti. Legatura coeva in mezza pelle con angoli, piatti in cartone decorato, tagli marezzati. Legatura solida (lievi spellature agli angoli e abrasioni ai tagli). Dedica a stampa a Monsignor Cesare de' Conti Brancadoro, patrizio fermano, arcivescovo di Nisibi. Poco comune opera di fra Giovanni da Capistrano, che combatte l'influenza degli astri sulle vicende umane, e si scaglia ad esempio contro qualunque azione della Luna sulla vegetazione, e sull'agricoltura in generale dimostrando anche l'impossibilita' della scienza numerica del lotto: 'nell'esaminare la quistione dell'influsso degli astri dobbiamo farci guidare dall'osservazione e dall'esperienza soltanto. Quella che noi trattiamo e' quistione di fatto... sara' poi lecito al filosofo l'avventurar delle congetture...". In realta' attacca poi nell'opera gli Eniciclopedisti, D'Alambert, De Lalande, l'italiano Giuseppe Toaldo, contrapponendo a questi astronomi come Cornelio a Lapide, l'Abulense, Valesio. Cfr.

        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]
