        Arte de la lengua Tacala y manual Tagalog [bound with, as issued] Manual Tagalog

      1796 - Printed in Manila on rice paper, a cornerstone Tagalog language manual. 1796. Sampaloc, Manila. Imprenta de Nuestra Senora de Loreto, por Pedro Arguelles de la Concepcion. 4to (205 x 155 mm). [16], 148, [6]; [2], 247, [3] pp. Contemporary vellum, spine lettered in ink, minor wear and soiling, but an untouched binding. Light browning throughout, coming disbound in spots, closed tears to leaves T4-5. 12,000 $ A fine copy, in its absolutely genuine condition, of the second edition of this guide to Tagalog, to-date a national language of the Philippines. Totanes (1688 – 1748) was a Spanish Franciscan Friar and missionary to Mexico and the Philippines; when 17 years old, Totanes entered the Franciscan Order, which would eventually take him to the Philippines, at age 26. That he did on board the Virgen de Atocha, first arriving to Mexico, and a year later –after teaching philosophy and theology at the Convento de San Agustin- sailed from Acapulco towards Manila. He resided in the Philippines for c. 30 years, working with natives and eventually appointed Prior to the Convent of Manila. “This Arte by Father Totanes is considered the best of all the writings by whose help the Spaniards learnt the Tagala language. Taking it is a whole it is based on the work of father San José, whose first edition was published in 1610; but as it was published so many years later it also combines the various improvements introduced by the Dominican and other writers Being printed entirely on rice paper, copies of this work are usually damaged or very badly wormed” (Maggs Bros, Spanish Books, 1927). According to Retana, this is the best of all manuals on the Tagalog language. It is today spoken by almost 25 million people in the Philippines –mostly-, Japan, Singapore, Malaysia and Indonesia; nowadays, it is discussed if the Filipino language is nothing other than the Tagalog, with influence of English. The Arte is a primary source to the language, and one of the most significant Asian printings of the 18th century in the field of linguistics.

        Cimelia Physica. Figures of rare and curious Quadrupeds, Birds, etc. With descriptions by George Shaw.

      London, 1796. In-folio, pp. (2), 106, (12) e 60 tavole colorate a mano da Miller, alcune stampate in seppia e rialzate a la gomme, di cui 41 di argomento ornitologico stampate da Bensley e Lance; in fine aggiunte sette tavole di argomento floreale. Notevole per grazia e raffinatezza compositiva anche il frontespizio illustrato. Legatura coeva in mezza pelle e angoli, carta decorata ai piatti, tassello con titolo al dorso. Le tavole apparvero per la prima volta tra 1776 e 1792 con il titolo "Vari soggetti della storia naturale", ma questa raccolta risulta praticamente sconosciuta. Il testo di Shaw appare invece solo in questa edizione del 1796. John Frederick Miller, figlio di noto artista botanico John Miller, lavorò presso Sir Joseph Banks, naturalista e botanico inglese a lungo a capo della Royal Society. Grazie al suo lavoro Miller ebbe quindi occasione di dipingere e incidere questi soggetti, probabilmente anche colorando le tavole. I Cimelia sono conosciuti soprattutto come un'opera ornitologica, ma contengono anche numerosi importanti ritratti vegetali, la maggior parte delle quali sono le prime illustrazioni della specie raffigurata.  Buon esemplare, alla sguardia anteriore timbro di collezione privata del XX secolo. .  Bird Books p. 94; Nissen IVB 638; Stafleu and Cowan 6033; Wood p. 465; Zimmer p. 585. .

Harding, 1797; [bound with:] BÜRGER, Gottfried Augustus. Leonora. Translated from the German … by W. R. Spencer. With designs by the Right Honourable Lady Diana Beauclerc. 2 works bound in 1, folio (365 × 255 mm). Fine contemporary binding of green straight-grain morocco, spine attractively gilt in compartments with interlocking wave tools, gilt lettered in second panel, sides with thick-and-thin rule enclosing a floral scroll border in gilt, gilt inner dentelles, pink endpapers, gilt edges, fore-edge gauffered. Fables: 9 engraved plates, 15 engraved vignettes; Leonora: engraved frontispiece, 4 engraved plates, 4 engraved vignettes, most signed by Bartolozzi after Beauclerc. Leonora with parallel text, German and English. A little rubbing, some offsetting and faint browning, a most attractive pair. First editions with these Bartolozzi engravings, the only two works illustrated by Lady Diana Beauclerc, here together in handsome contemporary full morocco. Dryden's adaptations of Chaucer and Boccaccio were among the chief reasons for his perhaps surprisingly high place in the esteem of the Romantic poets, especially Coleridge, Keats, Byron and Scott, while Bürger's Leonora inspired a frenzy of competing English versions around this time. Ironically Bürger had found his ballad form not in German literature, but largely through the medium of Percy's Reliques; from Leonora it was reabsorbed into English through the Lyrical Ballads, most directly Wordsworth's "The Idiot Boy".

First edition of Coleridge's political journal, undertaken to "create a rallying point for the Unitarians and moderate democrats in a radical Christian journal" (Holmes vol 1 p 106).

        SCHEDULE of Papers. [41 papers]. [Collection of Printed Internal Communications in the Royal Navy, October 1796 - January 1797, Pertaining to the French Expedition to Ireland]. (No title page, apparently as issued; completed from internal information).

      N.p., British Admiralty. 1796 -1797.. Soft cover. 4to, 29cm, un-paginated, c.55pp., including several folding tables, in the original plain blue wraps, frayed along the spine, wraps a bit wrinkled, very good condition, very rare. French intended to land a large expeditionary force in Ireland during the winter of 1796 1797 which would join with the United Irishmen and drive the British out of Ireland. These documents concern the state and condition of His Majesty's ships, and orders and letters concerning their sailing and deployment. This is all in reaction to the French expedition to Ireland, which was monitored by the British Fleet under Colpoys. Despite all the bustle reported in these communications, the British fleet was ineffective and Colpoys was replaced. Fortunately for the British, though not so fortunate for Irish patriots, the weather accomplished what the Royal Navy could not, sending the French fleet home in tatters. This is a fascinating document from the Napoleonic Wars, pertaining to one of the more colorful incidents of that troubled period. - With the bookplate of well known collector and bibliographer, Mario Witt. .

He is primarily known for his work as an ornithologist, his travels were to see specimens he'd studied in Paris in their natural environment. The prodigious collection of natural history specimens collected on his first voyage only fuelled his passion for further knowledge. In June 1783 he set out travelling as far north as 23 degrees lat, becoming one of the first Europeans to explore the interior of South Africa. His description of this second expedition ?is unique, for this period, as little information respecting these regions had been published up to this date?

        Encyclopédie des voyages, Contenant l'abrégé historique des moeurs, usages, habitudes domestiques, religions, fêtes, supplices, funérailles, sciences, arts, et commerce de tous les peuples. Europe (I-II), Asie (III), Afrique (IV), Amérique (V)

      (Paris): chez l'Auteur; chez Deroy, Libraire; chez les principaux Libraires de la République, 1796. First edition of this hand-colored encyclopedia of the peoples of five continents, an ambitious Enlightenment-era survey of the known world. The diplomat Jacques Grasset de Saint-Sauveur was born in Montreal in 1757 and died in Paris in 1810. In that brief span he produced a series of illustrated works devoted to ethnography, the Encyclopédie being the most extensive. Issued in parts, the work spans five volumes: Europe (divided into two sections), Asia, Africa, and America. Grasset de Saint-Sauveur records the customs and costumes of each local population, from his own countrymen through increasingly remote civilizations, concluding with the latest discoveries in the New World. The lasting appeal of the work lies in the hundreds of vividly hand-colored plates that represent the peoples of the world, framed as glimpses into everyday life: a Neapolitan fruit vendor with his basket of grapes, a Senegalese warrior carrying both spear and gun, an Indian nabab with parasol and hookah, a West Indian drummer and dancers, a Tahitian girl in full court dress, an Indonesian astride an elephant, a Chinese Buddhist monk, Turkish women enjoying the baths, Bohemian peasants toasting in a tavern, a group of young Russians sledding. Like other French artists of the period, Grasset de Saint-Sauveur was particularly captivated by the recent Pacific exploration of Cook and La Perouse, and the final America volume is filled with images inspired by those voyages: portraits of the natives of Nootka Sound, Hawaii, Tahiti, New Zealand, and more. Shortly after the publication of the Encyclopédie, Grasset de Saint-Sauveur would publish a rare composite image of many of these figures on a single plate dedicated to the New World, titled "Tableau des Decouvertes du Cap. Cook & de la Perouse." The title pages, as well as the advertisement in the first volume, describe the Encyclopédie as complete with 432 plates, a number echoed by bibliographers Brunet, Colas and others. However, the present example includes 438 plates, inclusive of the four frontispieces, more plates than any other recorded copy. The six additional plates, supplied from one of Grasset de Saint-Sauveur's later works in this vein, are "Russien" and "Russienne" in Volume II, "Habitants de la Carie" in Volume III, and "Sauvage de la Guiane," "Sauvagesse de la Guiane," and "Piaye-Medecin de la Guiane" in Volume V. The set features gilt borders around each plate and delicate hand coloring; most extant sets do not include the gold border, suggesting that this example may have been part of a deluxe issue. Text in French. Brunet II: 1711 (calling for 432 plates); Colas 1292 (calling for 428 plates and 4 frontispieces); Forbes I:249 and I:264; Lipperheide Ac 11 (calling for 428 plates and 4 frontispieces). A spectacular copy, in a handsome early binding. Seventy-two parts divided into five quarto volumes, bound in four, early nineteenth-century full vellum with central arabesques tooled in blind to center of boards, raised bands, manuscript titles to spines, green silk ribbon ties. Four hand-colored engraved frontispieces and 434 hand-colored engraved plates depicting the peoples of the world, borders heightened in gold, tissue guards. Many text leaves and plates printed on blue paper. Four pages of publisher's advertisements in volume I; volumes I and III-V bound without lists of plates. Ink shelfmarks and bookplates of the Earl of Dalhousie, Austin Smith, K.K. Wood, and J.R.P. to front pastedowns.

        Aktenmäßige Darstellung der Deutschen Union, und ihrer Verbindung mit dem Illuminaten-Freimaurer- und Rosenkreutzer-Orden. Ein nöthiger Anhang zu den höchst wichtigen Erinnerungen zur rechten Zeit. Erstausg.

      Wien, im Verlag bei Christoph Peter Rehm, 1796. - 301 S., mit einer mehrfach gefalt. Taf. ("National-Directions-Tabelle von Teutschland"), Kl.-8°, Halbleder d. Zt. mit gold- u. blindgepr. Rücken mit dreiseitigen Farbschnitt VD18 14604256; Wolfstieg 43135; Kloss 3290; Ackermann V/160: "Hoffmann war berüchtigter Haus-, Hof- u. Staatsspion Leopold II." - Erschien als "Anhang" zu dem Werk "Höchst wichtige Erinnerungen zur rechten Zeit über einige der allerernsthaftesten Angelegenheiten dieses Zeitalters" (Wien 1795). - Hoffmann gibt zahlreiche Texte von Original-Dokumenten (Briefe u.a.) wieder, die er in umfangreichen Anmerkungen scharf kommentiert (darunter auch Mitglieder-Listen der Deutschen Union). Er schreibt u.a., dass die "Deutsche Union" oder "Gesellschaft der 22 verbündeten Männer" (der Gründer war Carl Friedrich Bahrdt, 1741-1772) aus den Illuminaten (Weishaupt, Knigge etc.) entstanden sei, nachdem diese verboten wurden u. sich offiziell (scheinbar) aufgelöst hatten. Mit den "Rosenkreutzern" sind die "Gold- u. Rosenkreuzer" des 18. Jh. gemeint. In beide Orden konnte man nur eintreten, sofern man schon Freimaurer war. Hoffman, ursprünglich selbst Freimaurer u. Exjesuit, geht detailliert auf die versch. Verstrickungen der Geheimgesellschaften ein. - Leopold Alois Hoffmann (1760-1806), österr. Publizist u. Dramatiker. Nach Ausbruch der Franz. Revolution trat er aus der Loge aus u. begann einen leidenschaftlichen Kampf insbes. gegen Freimaurer u. Illuminaten. Er trat als Denunziant hauptsächlich in seiner "Wiener Zeitschrift" (1792-1793) auf u. veröffentlichte mehrere, meist anonyme Bücher. Immer vom dem Bestreben geleitet, Leopold II. zu einem energischen Vorgehen gegen die Logen zu bewegen. Der Kaiser aber soll einmal gesagt haben: "Der Kerl ist ein Esel, ich weiß es; aber er leistet mir als Spion sehr gute Dienste." (Constantin von Wurzbachs "Biographischem Lexikon des Kaiserthums Oesterreich",1863). Das Ende von Hoffmanns Aktivitäten war denn auch der Tod Leopolds II. im März 1792. Er zog sich darauf verbittert nach Wiener Neustadt zurück u. starb 1806 im Alter von 46 Jahren, verachtet u. schließlich vergessen. Erst als Teil der Geschichte der habsburgischen Reaktion u. Repression geriet Hoffmann im 20. Jh. wieder ins Blickfeld der Historiker. - Carl Friedrich Bahrdt (1740-1792), der Gründer der "Deutschen Union der XXII", erwähnt den vorliegenden Titel in seinem Buch "Geschichte und Tagebuch meines Gefängnisses [.]" mehrmals (S. 55-89 u. 175-186). - Einband berieben u. leicht bestossen; tlw. etwas braunfleckig, sonst ein gutes Expl. - Sehr selten, nach KVK/WorldCat ist der Titel nur als digitalisierte Vorlage nachweisbar.
