Rouget de Lisle, Claude Joseph
Paris: Didot l'aîné, 1796. First edition. [iv], 157, [1] + 5 pp engraved music. 1 vols. 8vo. "Aux armes, citoyens" -- the first Printing of 'La Marseillaise' in a Book. First edition, containing the first authorized appearance in book form of "La Marseillaise." The famous poem by Rouget de Lisle (1760-1836) appears at pp. 57-59 as "Le Chant des Combats, vulgairement L'Hyme des Marseillois. Aux Mânes de Sylvain Bailly. Premier Maire de Paris." La Marseillaise, now the French national anthem, and recognized worldwide as the quintessential call to revolution, "was originally written by a royalist officer as a patriotic song in support of the then French royal government which had declared war on April 20, 1792, against the Emperor Francis of Austria and King William II of Prussia. Subsequently, volunteers from Marseilles heard the song and joined in the storming in the Tuileries on Aug. 10, 1792. The song was thereafter quickly reprinted a great many times, usually under the title Marches des Marseillais or variant thereof" (Fuld). "La Marseillaise est un hymne d'éveil et de résistance qui a valu pour les résistances qui ont suivi, qui vaut pour celles que nécessite notre temps, et qui vaudra pour les résistances futures." -- Edgar Morin Fuld notes that the earliest printings of the famous anthem appeared either in broadside form or in periodicals, and all are extremely rare; this printing, its first appearance in a book, was officially authorized by the author and is highly desirable. The copy, in a Simier binding, is particularly so: tipped-in is an Autograph Note signed by … [Click Below for Full Description]

The revised second edition of a rare treatise on female propriety by Henry Revell Reynolds (1745-1811), written the year prior to his being appointed physician-extraordinary to George III. Reynolds is throughout his impassioned treatise predominantly concerned with the physical appearance of 'ladies' and what he considers their improper modes of dress. He opens stating; 'That a very young man should think of censuring the present mode of dress, which is so admirably adapted, and (with submission I say it) intended, for the gratification of his male contemporaries, will subject him instantly to the ridicule of almost every one', this notion does not however dissuade him from continuing his attack; 'He tells you, Ladies, honestly, that the fashion for exposing your bosoms, is the one against which his remarks are chiefly to be directed...the compliance with it, is, without any exception, indecorous; that it is often dangerous, and frequently ridiculous...'

Spieß, Christian Heinrich.
Leipzig, Voß u. Co., 1795-1796. Die fast unauffindbare Erstausgabe der frühen Dokumentation zur Seelenkunde. Spieß, der Begründer des deutschen Schauerromans, hatte alle Fälle selbst recherchiert. Er ging davon aus, dass es jeder selbst in der Hand habe, durch entsprechenden zurückhaltenden Lebenswandel etwas für die eigene geistige Gesundheit zu tun. Spieß glaubte daher allen Ernstes, dass diese Schilderungen davon abhalten könnten, in Wahnsinn zu verfallen. Spieß selbst lieferte pikanterweise den Gegenbeweis: er starb umnachtet mit 44 Jahren. "Die Bedeutung der Biographien liegt zunächst einmal in der offenen Affinität des Autors zum Phänomen des Verrückten. Aber er teilt sich mit anderen Aufklärern; Narrheit ist das irritierende Thema des sogenannten Vernunftzeitalters, das eine die Zeitgenossen erschreckende Zunahme seelischer Verstörungen erfuhr. Spieß ist der erste Autor, der diesen Tatbestand sozusagen nach dem Leben reportiert, wie er erstmals Biographien von Selbstmördern zusammenstellte. Die nichtfiktionale Literatur ist ja eine der wesentlichen Schreibintentionen der engagierten Aufklärer. Der eigentümliche Reiz der Nacherzählungen von Spieß liegt jedoch darin, daß seine Biographien bald die Moritat, bald das Märchen streifen (eine Art romantischen Rohstoffs) und wirkliche Lebensläufe zu gewissen literarisch tradierten Posen und Bildern fügen, etwa nach dem Modell von Hero und Leander oder dem durch Cervantes berühmt gewordenen 'Gläsernen Lizentiaten'. Die Bedeutung der Biographien liegt jedoch vor allem in der Schilderung zeitgenössischer gesellschaftlicher Zust … [Click Below for Full Description]

Smith, Adam
Printed for A. Strahan; and T. Cadell jun. and W. Davies, London, 1796. Early edition of Adam Smith's magnum opus and cornerstone of economic thought. Octavo, 3 volumes. Bound in full contemporary tree calf, elaborate gilt titles and tooling to the spine, morocco spine labels, gilt tooling to the front and rear panels. In excellent condition with some light toning to the text, bookplate of Charles Henry Bailey. An exceptional set of this classic work. Adam Smith's masterpiece, first published in 1776, is the foundation of modern economic thought and remains the single most important account of the rise of, and the principles behind, modern capitalism. "The history of economic theory up to the end of the nineteenth century consists of two parts: the mercantilist phase which was based not so much on a doctrine as on a system of practice which grew out of social conditions; and the second phase which saw the development of the theory that the individual had the right to be unimpeded in the exercise of economic activity. While it cannot be said that Smith invented the latter theory.his work is the first major expression of it. He begins with the thought that labour is the source from which a nation derives what is necessary to it. The improvement of the division of labour is the measure of productivity and in it lies the human propensity to barter and exchange.Labour represents the three essential elements-wages, profit and rent-and these three also constitute income. From the working of the economy, Smith passes to its matter -'stock'- which encompasses all that man owns eithe … [Click Below for Full Description]

Hadley, George
London printed for J. Sewell, 1796. Fourth edition. 8vo, 21 x 14 cm; pp.vii, viii, 124, vi, 55, (125)-229. Romanized Urdu text. Contemporary calf; rebacked, corners and edges repaired. Contemporary ownership inscription of J. Wormsley to title-page; bookplate of Margaret Yvonne Williams to front pastedown. The first attempt by an English author to compile a grammar of Urdu. Hadley sailed for India in 1763 and became a Captain in the East India's Company Bengal Army in 1766. His work was born of the need to communicate effectively with the troops under his command. There were no printed aids to the language available and the regimental munshis taught only Persian, not the 'vulgar' spoken language of the sepoys. Hadley gave a manuscript copy of his grammar to a friend who took it back to London and published it anonymously in 1771 in an expurgated form as A short grammar and vocabulary of the Moors language, without any acknowledgment to Hadley. When Hadley received a copy he decided to publish a corrected version under his own name with the title Grammatical remarks on the practical and vulgar dialect of the language of Indostan, commonly called Moors (London, 1792). It met a need, particularly among European officers in the East India Company's armies in India, though it proved a particular bugbear to Hadley's rival, John Borthwick Gilchrist. Gilchrist's criticisms were well-founded but Hadley's remained the more practical tool for Europeans serving in India; physically, far easier to carry than Gilchrist's monumental work.

Laplace, Pierre-Simon
Paris: Imprimerie du Cercle-Social, L'An IV de la République Française [1796]. First edition, with half-titles, without errata as usual. 314, (4); 312, (4) pp. 2 vols. 8vo. "Among the most influential scientists in all history" -- DSB. "Book I begins with what any attentive observer may see if he will open his eyes to the spectacle of the heavens on a clear night with a view of the whole horizon. Book II ... sets out the "real" motions of the planets, satellites and comets and gives the dimensions of the solar system. Book III is a verbal précis of the laws of motion as understood in eighteenth-century rational mechanics, with special reference to astronomy and hydrostatics. In Book IV, Laplace in effect summarized his own work in gravitational mechanics. Much of it consists of simplification of the prefatory sections to the published memoirs. The topics are perturbations in planetary motions, the shape of the earth, the attraction of spheroids and the rings of Saturn, motions of the tides and atmosphere, the moons of Jupiter, precession, and lunar motions. Only Book V contains material that Laplace had not written up in technical form or presupposed. It gives an overview of the history of astronomy and concludes with the speculation since called the nebular hypothesis and another on the nature of the universe in outer space." -- DSB. PMM 252 (note). Contemporary blue-patterned boards, contrasting spine labels. Some toning, joints just starting, heads a bit chipped. Verso of half-title in volume I bears a few bibliographical notes in pencil. Very good.

Trenchard another by [John] Vallance. 2 vols. 8vo. Hunter's last work and his most important one.

His experience of gunshot wounds and the resultant inflammations came from his year with the British army at Belle Island, Portugal in 1762 during the Seven Years War but it wasn't until thirty years later that he summarized his findings and subsequent discoveries. "His studies on inflammation in particular are fundamentals for pathology" (G & M 2283). John Valance was a Philadelphia engraver, was one the founders of the Association of Artists in America and known for having engraved a large number of encyclopedia plates.

Somervile, William
London: Printed by W. Bulmer, Shakespeare Printing Office, 1796. First Bulmer edition. With wood engravings by John and Thomas Bewick. xv, vii, [i], 126 pp. 1 vols. 4to (12 x 9-1/2 inches). Extra-illustrated. A foxhunting classic that "continues to be read for its depiction of a sport that has changed only in details since Somervile's time" (Andrews). The author, a devotee of field sports, was a genial man of whom it was said "his only enemy was the weather", and of whom Dr. Johnson remarked, "He writes very well for a gentleman." This copy extra-illustrated with the insertion of 38 plates by Samuel Howitt (from the British Sportsman, 1834); a proof wood-engraving by W. Smith and an engraving by Dodd ("Hare Hunting"). This edition is, as Schwerdt noted, "the finest of them all"; the superb wood engravings were designed and drawn on the block by John Bewick, who died before he could engrave them; apart from the final tail-piece, all were engraved by Thomas Bewick. At his death, the Gentleman's Magazine stated, "[John Bewick's] engravings to 'Somervile's Chace' will be a monument of Fame of more celebrity than marble can bestow." A SUPERB WORK. Schwerdt II, p. 167; Hugo, The Bewick Collector, 94; Andrews, Tally Ho! 35 (for first ed.); Biscotti, Six Centuries of Foxhunting, p. 347. Bound in full green levant morocco, triple gilt rule borders, spine gilt, gilt dentelles, all edges gilt. Some foxing (chiefly to title page and frontispiece). Typed letter from bookseller Harry Levinson laid in, offering the present volume to a customer. Bookplate of Constance and Henry Bowles.

HUTTON, Charles.
FIRST EDITION of the most comprehensive scientific encyclopaedia in English to date, and the only large one since Harris's Lexicon Technicum (1704-1710) almost a century earlier. "The dictionary reveals a deep and extensive knowledge of British and continental works and is still used by historians as a valuable source. The British reader was provided with bibliographical and biographical information on continental mathematicians such as D'Alembert, Euler, and Lagrange. The entries on engineering are particularly valuable, while mechanics, optics, and astronomy are less complete, especially from the point of view of mathematical treatment..." (ODNB). It also includes the first publication of Thomas Pellett's 1727 catalogue of Newton's papers. Roberts & Trent, Bibliotheca mechanica, pp. 169-170.

Portion of imprint removed from title. First Edition, later issue. Kinsky-Halm p. 12 (first issue). Weinhold/Dorfmüller p. 256. Hirsch IV, 241. For other issues see Hoboken 2, 27-30. In the first issue the opus number is printed as "IV" and the price "f2." In the present issue "4" appears in manuscript and there is no printed price. In addition, the number "11-1/2B" is printed at the foot of the first page of music in the "Violino Primo" part, most probably a printer's notation referring to the number of sheets required to print the part. Opus 4 is an original work, drawing on material from Beethoven's then-unpublished Octet for Winds (op. 103), "... with revisions sufficient to warrant calling it a new composition." Solomon: Beethoven, p. 102. "At some time before February 1791, probably when he was composing the C major Piano Sonata, Op. 2, no. 3, with its closely related opening theme, Beethoven re-cast the Octet (op. 103) as a String Quintet, Op. 4, and comparison of the two versions shows considerable light on his development as an instrumental composer during those four important formative years... The Quintet is by no means an arrangement of the Octet; unlike Mozart's parallel recasting of his Octet for the same … [Click Below for Full Description]

His first composition for string trio, it was modeled after Mozart's great Divertimento in the same key, with a similar form of six movements. It brought the young Beethoven (only 27 at the time) international recognition.The Italian music publisher Tranquillo Mollo (1767 - 1837) was first employed by the firm of Artaria in Vienna and in 1793 was made a partner. After leaving Artaria, he and Domenico Artaria (III) founded the firm of T. Mollo & Co. in July 1798 and subsequently issued first editions of many of Beethoven's works.  [Attributes: First Edition; In Dust Jacket]

[Trade Voyage Log Book]: [Hubbart, Samuel]
Mostly at sea from New York, with stops in Calcutta, Saint Helena, Ascension Island, and Cornwall, England, 1796. [246]pp. Square folio. Original crude burlap covers, stab-sewn with thick string. A bit toned and foxed, occasional ink or tobacco burns. Very good. A remarkable artifact of early American naval commerce containing the sailing directions and shipboard activities of the "Ship Washington of Philadelphia," which sailed from New York to Calcutta, rounding the southern tip of Africa and visiting Saint Helena and Ascension Island before crashing on the rocks at Cornwall, England on the way to Hamburg, Germany. The log contains a navigational ledger, with locations, headings, wind, and weather remarks, along with occasional sick lists, names of men "unfit for duty," those put on light duty, temperatures, and other information. The remarks are quite detailed and specific regarding shipboard work and activity. The captain of this final voyage of the Ship WASHINGTON was Samuel Hubbart, but the identify of the sailor who kept this log is unknown. The ship departed New York on July 4, 1795, and reached Calcutta on August 31. Without the need for recording navigational data while in port, the log's author switches from the ledger-style format and writes longer, more-detailed daily entries describing the crew's activities. The crewmen mentioned include pilots, boatswains, carpenters, coopers, caulkers, sailmakers, and others. Most of the entries pertain to the maintenance of the ship while anchored in the bay. Numerous mentions are made of crew on board fixing various … [Click Below for Full Description]

(KUNIGUNDE OF AUSTRIA)
19 leaves, written in a neat & legible hand. Small folio (305 x 190 mm.), orig. green paste-paper boards (upper cover detached, some light staining). [Probably Munich]: 1796.A most interesting and apparently unpublished manuscript of a biography of Kunigunde of Austria (1465-1520), sister of Emperor Maximilian I and wife of Duke Albrecht IV of Bavaria, written in a neat German cursive script. The individual chapters are headed "Kunigunde's birth and upbringing," "Kunigunde's betrothal," "Of our Kunigunde's special virtues," "Kunigunde's generosity towards her abbey and the Poor Sisters," "The Roman Emperor Maximilian I visits Kunigunde his dear sister in Püttrich abbey," and "Kunigunde's pious death." The final leaf contains a postscript with notes on the ancestors and siblings of Duke Albrecht IV.Kunigunde grew up in an educated and open environment at the Austrian court at Graz, where she learned to read and write and, more remarkably, received instruction in astronomy, mathematics, riding, and hunting.There are several sources for the life of Kunigunde. For her life before marriage, there is an apparently contemporary biography published by the Viennese Jesuit Joseph Benedikt Heyrenbach in 1778. There is mention of Kunigunde in a number of Bavarian chronicles. An anonymous description of Püttrich abbey (Bittrich Voll deß Himmlischen Manna...), published at Munich by Johann Lucas Straub in 1721, includes an account of her life (pp. 27-59) that is probably based on a earlier text and focuses on her monastic life.The period leading up to Kunigunde's mar … [Click Below for Full Description]

[Shorthand]. [Theology]
[Princeton, 1796. Very good.. [25],[419]pp. Modern calf, gilt leather label. Some chipping and wear to a few leaves, light scattered foxing. Manuscript volume of eighty-three 18th-century university theology lectures written in Taylor shorthand. Picking up at the start of the semester in January 1796, the book contains lecture notes through late February, with lectures numbered 75 to 158. The volume begins with an extensive table of contents written mostly in English, followed by over 400 pages of manuscript notes written out primarily in Taylor shorthand. Taylor shorthand was developed in 1786 by Samuel Taylor in Britain, and is comprised of nineteen simplified geometric characters. Though principally written out in shorthand, the text is interspersed with words in English, Latin, and Greek. Lecture 94, dated January 22, mentions Dr. Smith and Jersey College, potentially linking this volume to Princeton University. Samuel Stanhope Smith was a Presbyterian minister and president of Jersey College (later Princeton) from 1795 to 1812. Smith taught at Princeton from 1779 onward, first as a professor of moral philosophy and later as a professor of theology; he also served on the board of trustees. He was married to Ann Witherspoon, daughter of the previous president of the college, John Witherspoon, and was elected to the presidency upon Witherspoon's death. An unusual and fascinating artifact of 18th-century higher education.
