PHILOSOPHIE - LOCKE, John.
Jena, Akademisches Leseinstitut und Leipzig, Barth, 1795-1797. 3 Teile. Klein-8°. Schlichte Pappbände des 19. Jahrhunderts, (gering beschabt, Band 3 gelockert). Erste Ausgabe der Übersetzung Tennemanns, der in Jena und Marburg lehrte und heute vor allem als Philosophiehistoriker bekannt ist. Die erste deutsche Übersetzung von John Lockes Hauptwerk wurde von H.E. Poleyen verfasst und erschien 1757. - Lockes »Essay concerning Humane Understanding« versucht kritisch »die Sicherheit und Brauchbarkeit der menschlichen Erkenntnis Gott und dem Universum gegenüber zu ergründen. [ ] Lockes Schlußfolgerung war, daß menschliche Erkenntnis zwar das volle Begreifen der Welt notwendigerweise nicht erlangt, sie jedoch ausreicht, uns davon zu überzeugen, daß wir kein Spielball des puren Zufalls sind und daß wir bis zu einem gewissen Grade unser Schicksal selber bestimmen können«. Lockes Hauptwerk, ein im wörtlichsten Sinne epochemachendes Werk, richtet sich » an den denkwilligen, durchschnittlich gebildeten Menschen und seinen common sense – was allein schon ein Novum innerhalb der ernsthaften philosophischen Literatur darstellte« (KLL 3263). - Namensstempel (Leipoldt) auf Titel verso, gering stockfleckig. // 3 parts. Small 8vo. Simple boards of the 19th century, (slightly rubbed, vol.3 loose in binding). - First edition of Tennemann's translation, who taught in Jena and Marburg and is known today as a philosophical historian. The first German translation of John Locke's major work was written by H.E. Poleyen and published in 1757. Locke's "Essay concerning Humane Understanding" tries crit … [Click Below for Full Description]

James Monroe
Philadelphia: Benjamin Franklin Bache. Original Antique Book, leather bound, published 1797 A View of the Conduct of the Executive, in Foreign Affairs of the United States, Connected with the Mission to the French Republic, During the Years 1794, 5, & 6Monroe, James (Late Minister Plenipotentiary to the said Republic) Published by Printed by Benj. Franklin Bache, Philadelphia, 1797 From a US government archive website:Editorial Note James Monroe was an Antifederalist senator from Virginia in May 1794 when GW named him minister to France. He replaced Gouverneur Morris, whose recall the French government had demanded. John Jay had recently sailed to England to negotiate a treaty with Great Britain, with whom France was at war, and it was thought that a Republican partisan of France at this juncture could best reassure the French government of the continuing friendship of the United States. By the summer of 1796, after Monroe had been in Paris less than two years, GW and his cabinet had become convinced that the national interest was suffering from Monroe's failure to take proper steps to defend the Jay Treaty to the French government and to press the claims of U.S. citizens injured by French actions. Charles Cotesworth Pinckney was sent to replace Monroe and arrived in Paris in December 1796. Monroe delayed his departure until spring and did not get back to Philadelphia until late June 1797. Encouraged by his friends James Madison and Thomas Jefferson, Monroe began preparing his defense of his official actions as ambassador and in November 1797 delivered his manuscript for pr … [Click Below for Full Description]

N.P., c. 1797. Bound in late eighteenth-century full red roan. Covers with gilt single fillet border, smooth spine ruled in gilt, board edges and turn-ins decoratively tooled in gilt, all edges gilt, marbled endpapers. Blank book, interleaved and with thirty-three leaves with sixty-six mounted engravings (front and back of each medal), including thirty-one medals by Jean Dassier of the Sovereigns of England from William I to George II, including Oliver Cromwell (without the medals of the medals for Richard III, Henry VII, and Henry VIII), as well as medals of George III (by Lewis Pingo) and Queen Charlotte (by John Kirk). A fascinating collection. "Having being presented to Queen Caroline, perhaps through the good offices of Wake, Dassier set out proposals for a set of thirty-three medals of English sovereigns from William I to George II, to whom the series was dedicated. Based on engravings by George Vertue for Paul Rapin de Thoyras's History of England, these were advertised in the prospectus published in 1730 for purchase by subscription at 6 guineas for sets in copper and at 15 guineas for silver. During his second stay in England Dassier also planned, according to Vertue, to engrave many remarkable persons noted for great Actions in the government of this nation in Times passd. and learned men of all degrees lately or formerly or of the present time which he proposes to grave at his own expense. Medals of Milton, Bacon, and Selden were included in this set. Together these two medallic series belong to those series of historicizing portraits in different media that were … [Click Below for Full Description]

A few spots and some faint browning, neat repair to tear on plate IX in the second work, contemporary signatures of James Frampton (?of the Dorset Yeomanry Cavalry) and Ralph Baxter (?6th Dragoons) to the respective fly leaves of each work. Both volumes uncut in the original boards, edges rubbed, neatly rebacked at different times, the first work with a modern printed label, the second with the original label preserved. Detailed works listing the various commands and providing guidance on how they should be carried out. In his short preface to the Instructions, Fawcett writes that "every Officer of Cavalry shall be provided with a Copy of these Regulations, and the Commanding Officers of Corps are to take Care that this Order be duly observed". The Elucidations were "intended for the immediate instruction of officers on their entering into the Cavalry Service" and was "recommended to the Attention and Practice of all Regimental Officers". Fawcett was one of the main figures responsible for standardising the Army's procedures during this time, "outstanding works. crucial in preparing the army for the great struggle against revolutionary and Napoleonic France" (ODNB). Neither work is common, ESTC lists only 3 copies of the Instructions in the UK plus 6 in the US and 4 copies of the Elucidation in the UK and 1 copy in the US. [Attributes: First Edition]

Second or third edition in the original French, "the basis for editions in several foreign languages" (Anker), of La Pérouse's important Pacific voyage, first published in 1797. La Pérouse commanded an ambitious scientific expedition to the Pacific with the objective to establish trade contacts and to explore territories left uncharted by Cook. Fitted out with two ships, L'Astrolabe and La Bousole, the expedition sailed from Brest in August 1785. They called at Chile, Hawaii, Alaska, Macao, Manila, Terney, Kamchatka, Samoa and Tonga, reaching Botany Bay (Australia) in January 1788. La Pérouse weighed anchor in March of the same year. He sailed north into the Pacific and was never seen again. Some 40 years later Peter Dillon discovered the wreckage of his ships off Vanikoro.From the library of the Grafen von Ludolf. The text volumes and some plates somewhat foxed, the atlas frontispiece and title-page slightly dirty, some maps and charts with small tears at the folds, but still in good condition, most of the plates very good. All volumes rebacked (as noted), the atlas worn and the corners damaged.

BÜRGER, Gottfried August.
Göttingen, bei Johann Christian Dieterich, 1797. First edition thus. ‘Few German poets were better known abroad at the end of the century than Bürger, the author of “Leonore,” a ballad inspired by the example of Percy and Herder, [who] represents the beginning of the ballad in German poetry as an art form’ (Bareikis 135). Nowhere perhaps more so than in Britain, where ‘in the years between 1796 and 1800 the clatter of Lenore’s demon-horse sounded furiously through Britain’ (Stokoe, p. 66), with the poem, itself based on the Scottish ballad Sweet William’s Ghost, receiving five translations within a year, by William Taylor, John Thomas Stanley, William Robert Spencer, Walter Scott (his first publication), and Henry James Pye, the then poet laureate. ‘The year following publication of five English translations of Bürger’s ballad three of them (Stanley’s, Spencer’s and Pye’s) were reprinted in one volume in the poet’s homeland, indeed, in the very town [i.e. Göttingen] at whose distinguished university he had taught and in which he had died just three years before. There too he had written “Lenore,” therewith creating the German art ballad, and there published it in the Musenalmanach MDCCLXXIV’ (Allison Shelley, p. 74). Eschenburg (the great German translator of Shakespeare, among other English books) informs Gleim (1719–1803), the kindly patriarch of German poetry, that the first of the translators, John Thomas Stanley, had come to Brunswick fifteen years before ‘as a very young man (aged just fifteen) and, during a two-year residence there, had become acquainted, through Esc … [Click Below for Full Description]

BECKMANN, John [Johann]
London: J. Bell, 1797. Three volumes. First English translation. Contemporary full speckled calf, spines with gilt rules, gilt lettered red title labels and dark green oval number labels, the later armorial bookplate of the Cobbold family of Ipswich to the front pastedowns of volumes II and III, all three volumes with an inscription stating that the books were purchased in Sotheby's in 1972. A most attractive set. Johann Beckmann taught and wrote widely on the subjects of natural history and science, he was famously attributed with the coining of the term "technology". This is his most notable work, an almost encyclopaedic collection of articles on various trades, natural products and inventions covering an extensive list of subjects to include everything from the "chemical names of metals" to tulips. The first English translation appeared before Beckmann had completed the fourth and final volume, the first English edition of which appeared 17 years later.

[London:] Printed for the Author, and sold at Mssrs. G. G. J. Robinson’s J. Johnson’s J. Hookham’s and James Phillip’s, 1797. First edition: a companion book to the author’s popular grammar; a third edition was published in 1797), which includes a catalogue of modern German books at the end, updated from the list he provided in his 1774 Elements of German Grammar: ‘Without reading some of the best books, that are published by esteemed authors, in their native language, it is impossible to acquire that difficult art of writing and speaking a foreign language, with propriety and elegance. I shall, therefore, here subjoin a small catalogue of some modern German books, whose authors have acquired celebrity. Many of them are, at this time, still living; and some, whom I have mentioned, though they are of a more remote date, will, however, in my opinion, never lose their merit’ (p. 196). Among the authors included here for the first time are Bürger, Campe, Gleim, Schiller, and Goethe (‘Many volumes are published already, and perhaps many more are still to come. The sorrows of Werther have made this author known in England’). See McLelland, pp. 60–4 for a comparative table. Alston XIII, 18 (‘Possibly printed at Hamburg’; the Kurrentschrift type used on pp. 2–3, ‘A specimen of German Handwriting’, is certainly very unusual in an English book); McLelland, p. 346. Small 8vo (180 × 101 mm), pp. [8], 200; contemporary tree sheep, a little scraped in places, extremities rubbed, spine label lettered gilt; ink ownership inscription of C. H.

It has the same covers as the "c" example, yellow covers (soiled) with a medallion pattern and with a printed paper title label. Mitchell noted that the page numbers in his version "c" did not seem integral to the blocks and, indeed, they are not present in this copy. Also, there are 8 pages of advertisements from Yoshida Shimbei bound in at the back of the book. So, an interesting variant edition. In very good condition and good printing overall. In a custom slipcase. Baitei [1734-1810] was one of the most eminent of Buson's students and this book is probably his finest - dynamic, fresh and understated all at the same time.

D. A. F. Marquis de Sade
Privatdruck, 1797. exorbitant seltene Ausgabe eines der Hauptwerke von De Sade, der Text von "Justine" hier vollständig mit allen 6 Bänden (am Ende des 6. Bandes ist "Fin du sixième et dernier volume", also "Ende des sechsten und letzten Bandes" eingedruckt), allerdings leider ohne die auf dem Titelblatt angegebenen "Soixante Gravures sur Acier" (60 Illustrationen), gedruckt auf Büttenpapier, gebunden in einheitliche Ganzlederbände um 1870, die Rücken etwas gebleicht und berieben, sonst sehr schöne und saubere Exemplare, die Bindung bei allen Exemplaren sehr fest (ich bin mir fast sicher, dass die Blöcke vielleicht in den 1960er Jahren neu in die Einbände eingehängt wurden), als Gratisbeigabe lege ich "Der Marquis de Sade. Vortrag" von Prof. Dr. Albert Eulenburg (Dresden 1901, Verlag von H. R. Dohrn, 29 Seiten, Umschlag mangelhaft) bei. Darin wird auf Seite 14 ff. auch auf die vorliegende Ausgabe Bezug genommen: "Das große Hauptwerk de Sades, die Ursache und Quelle seiner herostratischen Unsterblichkeit, besteht aus zwei mit einander eng zusammenhängenden, wenn auch ursprünglich getrennt herausgegebenen Theilen. Der erste Theil, "Justine", erschien anonym zuerst 1791, die Fortsetzung, "Juliette", ebenfalls anonym 1796, das Ganze in zehn Bänden in Holland 1797.

Addressed to the Northern Purchasers (pp. 122-144). .Pages moderately browned and there is some minor foxing. Small label inside back cover indicates that this book was handbound by the late David Comstock (of Auburn, Washington). The Yazoo Fraud was a giant scandal involving most or all of territory in what are now the states of Alabama and Mississippi. The state of Georgia tied to void the sales of these lands but, in the end, the U. S. Supreme Court held (in 1810) that the State of Georgia's attempt to void or rescind the sales was unconstitutional. Bishop, writing in 1797, appears to have thought that Georgia would succeed in rescinding the fraud-induced sales. [Attributes: First Edition]

The Practical House Carpenter or Youth's instructor by William Pain Philadelphia 1797 This is a very rare book, at least only a few copies are listed in the Rare Book Hub's history. One sold recently, but was missing plates and had at least 12 replaced. The others listed by Charles Wood decades ago with prices that varied from $2,000 to $2,750. This copy has some problems, keeping in my we are silver dealers, not book dealers. So our descriptions may not use the correct terms. Both covers are separated from the book. The front board has a 19th c owner's name and a lot of figures, etc. The first blank page also has the owner's name. the contents pages and page 2 are also separated. The most damage is on some of the fold out pages. Plate 31 is torn in two, with some loss. Plate 65 has two tears and some loss. Plate 140 also has some loss. Plate 146 and the back cover are separated. Some of the pages are stained, we tried to show the worst ones, many are not stained or discolored. There are two places were instead of a page there is a narrow strip of paper. I don't believe anything is missing as the plates are consecutive (ie 62 strip 63) but has something to do with the construction of the book. We are limited to 12 photos, so we tried to show the worst pages. We have more photos available, and within limits will take a few more for serious buyers.
