FROMHERZ, Karl.
IV, 51, [1 blank] pp.Treatise on the geognosy (geology, minerology and subterranean structure) of the German region Breisgau, situated near the Black Forest, written by Karl Fromherz (1797-1854). Fromherz was professor of chemistry and mineralogy at the University of Freiburg and is known for his several works on the geology and mineralogy of the area around Freiburg, the capital of Breisgau. In this work Fromherz dwells on the geological formation of Breisgau's soil in the Jura geological era. He describes the different substances in the soil and also the different effects of this epoch on the formation of the landscape in the region around the Black Forest, both depicted in the lithographed maps bound at the end of the book. On pp. 49-51 he also gives an extensive explanation of both maps.Binding very slightly worn, some small stains throughout the book (especially on the endleaves), mostly not affecting the text. Otherwise in good condition.l Poggendorff I, pp. 810-811.

PALMER, Thomas Fyshe.
Cambridge: by Benjamin Flower for W. H. Lunn, J. Deighton, and J. Nicholson,, 1797. Octavo in half-sheets (207 x 122 mm). Recent sprinkled calf to style, raised bands gilt to spine, gilt octofoils to compartments, red morocco label, edges dyed yellow, marbled endpapers. Bound without the advertisement leaf. Pale marking to sig. D3. A very good, crisp copy. First edition of this scarce contribution to early Australian convict literature, three copies traced at auction in the last 40 years; ESTC locates three copies in Australasian libraries, at the Alexander Turnbull Library in Wellington, Auckland Museum Library, and the State Library of South Australia. Palmer (1747-1802), a Unitarian minister, was sentenced to seven years' transportation for circulating a controversial handbill, despite support from Charles James Fox, Earl Stanhope and others. "On 11 February 1794 he, William Skirving and Thomas Muir—all three numbered among the reformers known as the 'Scottish martyrs'—were sent on board the Surprise with a gang of convicts to Botany Bay" (ODNB). On the journey Palmer was falsely accused of inciting a mutiny and was confined to his cabin, while other convicts were flogged. The ship arrived at Port Jackson on 25 October and Palmer and his companions, possessing letters of introduction to the governor, were treated well. Palmer's narrative, and the depositions of the ship's surgeon and several members of the New South Wales Corps against Captain Campbell, are all signed Sydney or Port Jackson, 1794, and were edited by Palmer's fellow Unitarian minister Jeremiah Joyce. … [Click Below for Full Description]

MILNE, Thomas, and DONALD, Thomas
London,: William Faden, Geographer to His Majesty and to H.R.H. the Prince of Wales, 1797. Surveyed and Measured in the Years 1790, 1791, 1792, 1793, and 1794. By Thos. Donald, Thos. Milne and Assistants. Planned from a Scale of one Inch to one Statute Mile. The Executed and Published at the Expense of the Proprietor William Faden. August, 1st, 1797. Engraved map on six sheets, original hand-colour in outline, dissected and mounted on linen, inset plans of Kings Lynn, Great Yarmouth, and Swaffham, key to map lower left. William Faden was a prolific publisher of atlases, maps and plans who started his career working for Thomas Jefferys around 1770. Following the latter's death in 1771 he took over the business, which traded as Jeffery's and Faden until 1783, after which it traded under Faden's own name. The stock acquired from Jefferys was considerable, but it did not include a one inch to one mile of Norfolk; indeed the only large-scale surveys of the county up to this time were a number of maps published in the first half of the eighteenth century on a scale of 2/3 inch to one mile. Andrew Armstrong's son, Mostyn John, who had been involved with his father in the 1769 survey of Northumberland had moved to Norfolk a few years later. There he issued "Proposals" for large-scale maps of Norfolk, and Cambridgeshire, neither of which came to fruition. It was therefore left to William Faden to produce his own map as he had done with Hampshire and he again engaged the services of the surveyor of that map, Thomas Milne. The latter was joined by Thomas Donald who had worked for Je … [Click Below for Full Description]

Farrer, William
Manuscript, 1796-1797. 160 pages; 19 cm. Original calf covers tooled in blind, recently rebacked, with original marbled endpapers. Some soiling to pages, but the text is complete with no losses to the pages, and the ink though slightly faded is easily legible. Farrer was a member of the party of Friends who toured Germany and Holland from August 1796 to February 1797, a period of tremendous political turmoil. The party included David Sands of Cornwall, NY; William Savery and Benjamin Johnson of Philadelphia, PA; and George and Sarah Dillwyn of Burlington, NJ. Representing an important moment in the transatlantic ministry that such scholars as Frederick B. Tolles, Sarah Crabtree, Naomi Pullin, and Jordan Landes have identified as vital both to Quaker identity and influence, the mission was widely reported at the time and interpreted since. Accounts by two of the participants were published in the 1840s (cf. Savery, 112-185, and Sands, 96-172), and the manuscript of a third, housed at Winterthur, was prepared later (Hickman). Unpublished, Farrer’s richly detailed memoir offers a fresh perspective on the voyage, presenting previously unrecorded incidents and illuminating some significant divergences among the missionaries worthy of further study.

London: A. Strahan; and T. Cadell Jun. and W. Davies, 1797. Two volumes. Tall quarto (9 by 11 inches), rebound in modern 3/4 green morocco and green boards with red morocco spine labels. All half-titles present. First edition of the renowned 18th-century British historian's celebrated translation of Aristotle, a complete wide-margined copy. Interior generally clean with stamps from The “Western Literary and Scientific Institution” and contemporary ownership inscriptions. "Aristotle's treatise on politics is the most valuable work on that branch of philosophy that has descended to us from antiquity It was the earliest effort of antiquity to establish a system of political philosophy" (Allibone, 672). "Replete with erudition," this influential translation won quick praise as a work that "will do honor to the great original as well as evince the learning and assiduity of Dr. Gillies" (Brueggemann II:41). Here Gillies sought to highlight the renewed importance of Aristotle to a Britain upended by the American and French revolutions. Gillies' works on ancient Greece were referenced by both Madison and John Adams in their constitutional writings. For his part Thomas Jefferson, who had a 1614 Latin edition of Aristotle's Ethics in his library, addressed Gillies' translation and Aristotle's sense of democracy's potential for tyranny by noting that the ancient Greeks "had just ideas of the value of personal liberty, but none at all of the structure of government best calculated to preserve it The full experiment of a government democratical, but representative, was and is still rese … [Click Below for Full Description]

An exceptionally nice copy in a delightful and well-preserved period binding. Third edition, following the first of the same year. "For Wilberforce, though, the nation's most pressing needs were moral and spiritual, and in April 1797 he at last completed and published A Practical View of the Prevailing Religious System of Professed Christians in the Higher and Middle Classes of this Country contrasted with Real Christianity. This work was the tract begun in 1793 and now expanded into a full-length book. As the title implies, Wilberforce expounded his interpretation of New Testament teachings as a basis for a critique of the lukewarm and inadequate practice of Christianity he observed around him. He called for religious revival as an essential means of reversing national moral decline. Despite its unfashionable theme and diffuse and discursive style, the book was extensively read and very influential. It was repeatedly reprinted and translated.

LA PÉROUSE (Jean-François de Galaup, comte de).
[Paris, 1797]. 683 x 493 mm. Grande carte couvrant les côtes nord-est de l'Asie, publiée dans le voyage autour du monde du comte de La Pérouse. Elle s'étend entre la mer d'Okhotsk et les Philippines, avec l'île de Sakhaline, la péninsule du Kamtchatka, les îles Kouriles, le Japon, la Corée, l'île de Taïwan (anciennement Formose) et l'archipel des Mariannes. La route empruntée par les frégates la Boussole et l'Astrolabe entre la baie d'Avatcha, au sud du Kamtchatka, et Manille aux Philippines, est signalée par un trait continu. Le voyage de La Pérouse fut l'une des plus grandes expéditions de découverte de la fin du XVIIIe siècle. Ses objectifs étaient ambitieux : compléter la cartographie, établir de nouveaux comptoirs commerciaux, ouvrir de nouvelles routes maritimes, et plus généralement enrichir les connaissances et les collections scientifiques. Forte de deux navires, la Boussole et l'Astrolabe, l'expédition quitta Brest en août 1785, doubla le cap Horn en janvier 1786, remonta la côte ouest de l'Amérique jusqu'en Alaska (juin 1786) en passant par l'île de Pâques et Hawaï, puis revint en Californie et traversa le Pacifique jusqu'à Macao (janvier 1787). Après une escale à Manille, La Pérouse se dirigea vers les côtes nord est de l'Asie : Formose, la Corée, la Tartarie, et le Japon, dont il fut le premier à en dresser une cartographie cohérente. L'expédition continua vers Samoa, les îles Tonga, puis l'Australie et Botany Bay, d'où La Pérouse écrivit la dernière lettre qui soit parvenue en Europe.

TITRE : Histoire de Justine ou les Malheurs de la Vertu AUTEUR : Sade, Donatien Alphonse François Marquis de ANNEE & LIEU DE PUBLICATION : 1797 en Hollande (Bruxelles vers 1865) DETAILS : Très rare édition de Justine ou les malheurs de la Vertu. Selon Pia cette édition daterait de 1865 et serait la quatrième, probablement Bruxelloise. L'édition présente est parfaitement complète en 4 volumes in-12, dans une reliure en demi Maroquin rouge à coin, dos à 4 nerfs avec pièce de titre bleue, fer de tomaison, et fer d'allure florale, le tout dans un très bel état, coins piquants. Les cahiers et le texte sont d'une parfaite fraîcheur, papier bien blanc et souple, tête rouge, non rogné. L'illustration du texte se compose de 44 gravures d'un érotisme mordant (exécutées d'après les originales de l'édition de 1797 et tirées sur papier de chine), 4 en frontispice en regard de chaque page de titre, 40 en hors texte, toutes en parfait état. Un très bel ensemble, peu courant en soi, les exemplaires complets des 44 planches étant fort rares, ici d'une parfaite fraîcheur et bien relié dans un agréable et suggestif maroquin. Justine est le premier ouvrage de Sade publié de son vivant. Il s'agit de la dernière version remaniée d'un conte qu'il avait terminé en prison, en 1787, sous le titre : Les Infortunes de la vertu. Alors que la suppression de la censure avait été instaurée le 13 janvier 1791, Justine parut si choquant que la censure fut réinstaurée et l'ouvrage cloué au pilori. PARFAITE FRAÎCHEUR OFFRES BIENVENUES, il y a toujours moyen de discuter.

Da der in der Anzeige nicht genannte Autor aber schon Anfang 1797 in Wien starb, blieb das Kartenwerk ein Torso.

Fold out map in volume one is ripped, but still functions. Some foxing throughout otherwise unmarked. Please see photos. Edward Gibbon was an English historian, writer and Member of Parliament. Our set is considered his most important work. It is known for the quality and irony of its prose, its use of primary resources, and its polemical criticism of organized religion. After several years, Gibbon "often temped to throw away the labors of seven years" Adam Smith told Gibbon that "by the universal assent of every man of taste and learning, whom I either know or correspond with, it sets you at the very head of the whole literary tribe at present existing in Europe." In November 1788, he was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society. RARES1797HOPA. [Attributes: First Edition]

Traditional Mikdash
Livorno, Italy, 5557 (or 1797)]. 1797 RARE & Important Judaica Livorno Italy Jewish Sefer Mikdash Hebrew PrayerA rare, 18th-century Jewish prayer book entitled 'Sefer Avodat Mikdash'. This book, published in Livorno, Italy in 1797, was a study into the behaviors expected in a Jewish synagogue and temple - or simply a Jewish guide to sanctuary. Notably, Livorno became a hub for Jewish immigrants in the 17th-century and their presence only grew throughout the Medici rulership. Curiously though, it wasn't until 1780, when Livorno government reorganized, that Jews were declared eligible for various positions in the general court. Because of this rise in status, Jewish books became more prominent - including this 1797 published work.Item number: #10774Price: $750Traditional Mikdashספר עבודת מקדש - קול תפלה קול תחנה...
