Untrimmed and unopened. A study of the languages of the Indians of North America, by a young professor of medicine, natural history, and botany at the University of Pennsylvania.

With an eloquent five-page dedication to Thomas Jefferson as vice- president, with whose attitudes towards the Indians the author had much sympathy: "I regret with you, Sir, the evanishment of so many of the tribes and nations of America. I regret, with you, the want of a zeal among our countrymen for collecting materials concerning the history of these people."

        Tvänne Resor från Ostindien till Americas nordvästra kust, åren 1786, 1788 och 1789.

      J.S. Ekmanson, Stockholm 1797 - Octavo; a very good copy in a modern calf binding. First Swedish edition. Scarce: the first Swedish edition, translated by Samuel Ödmann, of 'one of the early and fundamental books on the Northwest coast of America in general and on Alaska in particular' (Lada-Mocarski). Meares made two fur-trading voyages, the first reaching Alaska and Kodiak, but was frustrated by the presence of the Russians. On the Northwest coast he met Portlock and Dixon, later sailing to Hawaii and continuing to Canton.His second voyage to the American coast was to alter the course of history, with his actions leading to the "Nootka Controversy" and nearly precipitating a war between England and Spain. The appendices contain letters and instructions, Duffin's journal while exploring the Straits of Juan de Fuca, and Meares's Memorial of 13 May 1790, claiming exclusive rights to Nootka and the prior raising of the British flag.

        Voyage de la Pérouse autour du Monde, publié conformement au decret du 22 Avril 1791, et rédigé par M.L.A. Milet-Mureau

      Paris: de l'Imprimerie de la République, 1797. Four volumes, quarto, and an atlas, folio; with the engraved portrait of La Pérouse as frontispiece to the text, the atlas containing the engraved title and 69 engraved maps and plates (21 folding); a particularly good clean copy of the text volumes, unpressed and especially large with the edges entirely uncut (measuring approx. 305 x 235 mm), with the Atlas volume also with generous margins and its engraved plates all in strong and fresh impressions; in a fine binding of period-style half calf. "Vanished trackless into blue immensity" First edition of one of the finest narratives of maritime exploration ever published. In January 1788, two and a half years after their departure from France, La Pérouse's ships sailed into Botany Bay just hours after the settlers under Governor Phillip began the move from Botany Bay to Port Jackson. After their subsequent departure from the Australian east coast they "vanished trackless into blue immensity" (Carlyle); no further trace was found of the expedition for three decades.La Pérouse's habit of forwarding records whenever he had an opportunity to do so ensured their survival. The first portion of the expedition's records had been forwarded by sea from Macao; the second (Macao to Kamchatka) went overland with de Lesseps, and the final reports went back with British despatches from Botany Bay, the British extending what was then a normal courtesy between the exploring nations. It was from these records that Milet-Mureau, the editor, established the official narrative of the expedition for its publication in this form.It has been remarked that the friendship between the two nations grew in proportion to their distance from home. Certainly the English attitude to La Pérouse seemed natural to Watkin Tench: "during their stay in the port the officers of the two nations had frequent opportunities of testifying their mutual regard by visits and other interchanges of friendship and esteem;" and La Pérouse endeared himself particularly "by the feeling manner in which he always mentioned the name and talents of Captain Cook."As Glyn Williams has characterised it, the French voyage was 'A deliberate réplique française or counter-stroke to Cook's voyages... a follow-up to Cook's third voyage, [with] its instructions a running commentary on what Cook had discovered and left undiscovered...'.Philip Gidley King noted in his journal that the French explorer "informed me that every place where he has touched or been near, he found all the astronomical and nautical works of Captain Cook to be very exact and true, and concluded by saying, 'Enfin, Monsieur Cook a tant fait qu'il ne m'a rien laissé à faire que d'admirer ses oeuvres' ["Captain Cook has done so much that he has left me with nothing to do but admire his achievements'].A voyage despatched in the fullest spirit of the Enlightenment, under the direct orders of the monarch himself, it was intended to complete discoveries and satisfy many different curiosities. La Pérouse was specifically instructed to study climates, native peoples, plants and animals, to collect specimens and artefacts and to observe the activities of other European powers. The official instructions included the requirement that he should 'act with great gentleness and humanity towards the different people whom he will visit'.The timing was remarkable: coincident at its close with the Australian First Fleet, La Pérouse left France in 1785 and never knew of the French Revolution; and while Marie Antoinette chose Cook's voyages to read the night before her death, Louis XVI is said to have repeated on his way to the scaffold the question that he had been asking for months: ''Is there any news of M. de La Pérouse? 'The narrative published here and in subsequent editions and translations covers the progress of the voyage from the departure of the two vessels from Brest in 1785. On their way to the northwest coast of America they stopped in Chile, Easter Island and Hawaii, where they were the first Europeans to land on Maui. During 1786 La Pérouse followed the American coast from their landfall near Mount St Elias in Alaska to southern California, exploring and mapping the coast and making particularly significant visits to Lituya Bay where they transacted with the Tlingit tribe (as dramatised two centuries later by Carl Sagan in Cosmos), the outer islands of British Columbia, San Francisco and Monterey. The first non-Spanish visitor to California since Francis Drake, the French explorer took close note of Spanish activity in the pueblos and missions.The expedition sailed on, visiting Macau, Manila, Korea, the Pacific coast of Russia, Japan, and Samoa and exploring the central Pacific, but their main instructions were to make for Australian waters to check on English activity in the region. On 24 January 1788 they reached Botany Bay.The folio Atlas contains the wonderful series of views chiefly after the original drawings by the chief official artist, Gaspard Duché de Vancy, that had been sent back to France with the various despatches; many of these were recently exhibited at the Musée de la Marine in Paris. Strikingly interpreted as engravings and printed here in rich dark impressions they were, as Christina Ionescu (Book Illustration in the Long Eighteenth Century) has noted, like the engravings in the huge Napoleonic Déscription de l'Egypte, continuing a tradition of "large and extravagant productions" at a time when more commercial publishers were generally downsizing the illustrative content of publications.The Atlas also includes magnificent maps of Russian Asia, Japan, California and the Pacific Northwest Coast with important new data for the then imperfectly known Asiatic side of the Pacific.

        Die Metaphysik der Sitten. (1:) Metaphysische Anfangsgründe der Rechtslehre. (2:) Metaphysische Anfangsgründe der Tugendlehre.

      Königsberg, bey Friedrich Nicolovius, 1797.. 2 Bde. 8vo. (1:) LII, 1 Bl., (56-) 235; (2:) X, 190 S. Einfache, zeitgenössische Pappbände.. Erste Ausgaben, ohne den Haupttitel, wie meist. - Kant (1724-1804) gliedert die Philosophie in eine empirische und eine reine (apriorische) Philosophie. Die reine Philosophie besteht aus der Logik und der Metaphysik, die sich mit Gegenständen des Verstandes beschäftigt. "Die Metaphysik der Sitten ist damit der Teil der Metaphysik, der sich mit den rationalen Grundbegriffen der Sittlichkeit beschäftigt im Gegensatz zu einer empirisch verfahrenden Ethik, die Kant als praktische Anthropologie bezeichnet" (Wikepedia). Kant definiert so seine Moralphilosophie, die er - neben in der der Metaphysik der Sitten von 1785 und der Kritik der praktischen Vernunft von 1788 - vor allem im vorliegenden Werk umreißt.

        Statuta Ecclesiae Mexicanae necnon Ordo in choro servandus curante Vallisoletanae Ecclesiae capitulo sumptus suppeditante

      Mexici: Apud Marianum Zunnigam, et Ontiverium Folio (27.5 cm; 11"). [1], 140 pp., [2] ff.. 1797 Fray Antonio de San Miguel, the bishop of Michoacan, reprints the statutes promulgated by the Third Mexican Provincial Council (1585) and the "Ordo servandus in choro" of Archbishop Alonso de Mont?far (fl. 1512–70). The archbishop originally established these 42 rules on proper organization and deportment for the choir of the Cathedral of Mexico City. The bishop of Michoacan undoubtedly wished to bring some of this order to his own bishopric and cathedral.Uncommon: WorldCat and NUC Pre-1956 locate only four copies in the U.S. Contemporary vellum over paste boards of printer's waste, vellum cockled and that of the front cover lightly rodent-gnawed at board edges.

        Ischia, Blick auf Lacco Ameno.

      - Bleistift, blaugrau laviert, auf gelblichem Velin. 19:22 cm. Verso: Heilige Familie. Bleistiftskizze. – Wahrscheinlich Studie nach einem Altmeister-Gemälde. Provenienz: Sammlung Fritz Hasselmann, München, Lugt 1012. Hier handelt es sich um eine Zeichnung nach C. Rottmanns (1797-1850) Fresko, ausgeführt 1832, aus dem Italien-Zyklus, den Rottmann im Auftrag König Ludwig I. für die Hofgarten-Arkaden in München ausführte. Der Sohn des wohlhabenden Heidelberger Bankiers und Fabrikanten Chr.A. Fries und jüngere Bruder des Landschaftsmalers Ernst Fries (1801-1833) erhielt seinen ersten Unterricht bei J.K. Koopmann (1797-1894) in Karlsruhe, wo er Anatomie und Figurenzeichnen erlernte. Von 1835-1837 absolvierte er ein Studium an der Münchner Akademie, anschließend ging er nach Rom, wo er – 1840-1843 unterbrochen von einem Aufenthalt in Düsseldorf zur Ausbildung an der Kunstakademie – bis 1846 weilte. Dann kehrte er über Genf und Paris nach München zurück, wo er sich mit B. Genelli (1798-1868), C. Rahl (1812-1865) und D. Fohr (1801-1862) befreundete. Nachdem er sich politisch der 1848er Revolution angeschlossen hatte, mußte er 1852 München als „Demokrat" verlassen. Er ging nach Heidelberg und erneut nach Rom. 1854 kehrte er schließlich nach München zurück.

        Eigenh. Brief mit zweifacher U. (Fragment).

      Schönebeck/Elbe, 16. IV. 1797. - 1 S. (Schlußblatt eines wohl dreiseitigen Briefs auf einem Doppelblatt) mit Siegel und Adresse verso ("Monsieur / Monsieur Francois Brentano / Francfort s/m"), am Unterrand beschnitten. Gr.-4to (Wasserzeichen: zweistrichige Antiquaversalien "Francke" mit Rankenwerk). Unbekannter Jugendbrief Brentanos an seine älteren Brüder Franz und Georg in Frankfurt am Main: das Antwortschreiben auf deren Drängen, trotz des Todes des Vaters seine Studienpläne fortzusetzen statt heimzukehren und den Kaufmannsberuf zu ergreifen. Vorhanden ist das letzte von wahrscheinlich ursprünglich zwei Blättern, deren erstes die ersten beiden Seiten des Briefs an das nunmehrige Familienoberhaupt Franz Brentano enthalten hätte; dieses Schreiben endet auf dem vorhandenen Blatt mit vier Schlußzeilen und der Unterschrift. Darunter steht als Nachschrift ein eigenständiger, ebenfalls mit vollem Namen unterschriebener Brief an Georg, der vollständig erhalten ist. Auf ein kurzes Postscriptum folgen schwungvolle Federschnörkel; ein darunterstehendes Wort scheint mit der Schere (bei der Eröffnung des Siegels?) in den Oberlängen abgeschnitten worden zu sein. - Der junge Clemens Brentano, der sich im väterlichen Handelshaus zu Frankfurt durch ostentativen Unwillen, Skandale und aktive Sabotage unmöglich gemacht hatte, war von der Familie schließlich zu einer akademischen Karriere gedrängt worden. Zum Zeitpunkt der Briefniederschrift weilte er in Schönebeck bei Magdeburg, wo er bei seinem Onkel, dem Bergrat Karl von La Roche, auf sein im Mai beginnendes Studium der Bergwissenschaften in Halle vorbereitet werden sollte. Nach dem plötzlichen Tod Peter Anton Brentanos am 9. März 1797 schrieb der 19-Jährige von dort am 20. und 24. März bestürzt an seine Brüder: er fürchtete, durch seine Tollheiten dem Vater die letzten Lebensmonate vergällt zu haben und der Familie nun auf der Tasche zu liegen; daher wolle er, vom Onkel beraten, nicht mehr studieren, sondern nach Frankfurt zurückkehren, die Kaufmannslehre absolvieren und seine Brüder unterstützen. Franz antwortete am 27. mit einem nicht erhaltenen Brief (am selben Tag schrieb ihm die Schwester Sophie: "Georg und ich sind großjährig erkläret, die jüngere[n] haben den Franz als ersten und den Herrn [Johann Franz] Denant als zweyten Vormund bekommen"). Am 3. April schrieb Clemens wiederum an Franz: er insistierte, das Studium nicht verfolgen, sondern an der Seite seiner Brüder arbeiten zu wollen. Fünf Tage später verfassten Franz und Georg Brentano einen gemeinsamen Brief, in dem sie Clemens eher anflehten als rieten, weiter den einmal eingeschlagenen Weg zu verfolgen: in Frankfurt könne er gar keine Hilfe sein; er solle nun nicht abermals in die vom Vater kritisierte Unbeständigkeit verfallen, sondern sein Studium antreten (vgl. FBA 38.1, S. 153-155). Vollends deutlich wurde Georg in seiner Nachschrift: "Ändere nicht wieder Clemens, ich meine es guth, zum Kaufmann taugst du nichts; besser zum Gelehrten" (FBA 38.1, S. 151). Clemens' erleichterte Antwort an die Brüder liegt hier nun erstmals vor, wenn auch nur fragmentarisch. Der an Franz gerichtete Text endet mit den Worten: "[.] arbeitest alles das vielfach ersezzen was du für uns gethan hast, wie er dich in der Treue und Anhänglichkeit aller deiner Geschwister schon belohnet. Dein treuer Freund und dankbarer Bruder. Clemens Brentano". Die Georg gewidmete Nachschrift lautet: "Lieber Georg! Deine beigefügten Zeilen haben mich herzlich erfreut, und dein Stillschweigen mich gar nicht verdroßen indem ich wuste wie fürchterlich du arbeiten mustest. Die Sophie schreibt mir von deinem üblen Aussehen ich bitte dich lieber bester Bruder unterziehe [d]ich zum Schaden deiner Gesundheit nicht zu vielen angreifenden Geschäften. Die Antwort auf deinen freundschaftlichen Rath siehst du aus meiner Antwort an Franz. Nimm meine[n] herzlichen Glükwunsch zu deiner Grosjährig Erklärung an und sei versichert daß ich dich herzlich liebe und dir einstens wenn ich kann dankbar sein werde. Dein treu

        A view of the causes and consequences of the American Revolution; in thirteen discourses, preached in North America between the years 1763 and 1775, with an historical preface

      G. G. and J. Robinson, Faternoster-Row, 1797-01-01. First Edition. Hardcover. Very Good. Modern navy cloth, gilt stamped. Fine binding and cover. 1st ed. Collated. [8, including half-title], xciv, [errata], 596 pp. Contemporary marbled end pages bound in. Pages are generally clean and unmarked. An attractive volume. Howes B641; Sabin 6839. A contemporary tory view of the lost colonies of America. Jonathan Boucher (1738â€?"1804) was an English schoolmaster and first-hand writer on the American Revolution in the Chesapeake/Potomac region. Boucher came to Maryland in 1759 and served as a tutor for the sons of wealthy colonial families in Virginia (Including George Washington's stepson, Jackie Curtis). He later served as a clergyman. Boucher was a strong loyalist and preached obedience to the crown to his St. Anne's parish, Maryland. To Boucher, the “idea of associating Christianity with political radicalism…had originated in Judas's politically inspired betrayal of Jesus. The 1797 published text of Boucher's sermon invoked Robert Filmer's doctrine of the divine right of kings to exercise patriarchal authority over their subjects. If Boucher did inject Filmer into the pre-revolutionary controversy, he would have been the only American loyalist to do so. The stronger likelihood is that Boucher added Filmerian patriarchalism to his conservatism during the 1790s in response to the extremism of the French Revolution, and accordingly revised his 1775 sermon just before its publication." With the growth of revolutionary sentiment, in August 1775 Boucher was forced to forsake Maryland for England. - Robert M. Calhoon, Loyalists in revolutionary America (1973) DNB.

(Warda 176).The two parts of The Metaphysics of Morals were published separately (in January and August of 1797 respectively). Kant felt that a more detailed description and analysis of his ethical position was called for and he developed those details in a series of lectures and then presented them in a two part work: The Metaphysic of Morals. "He sets these consequences out in his lectures on ethics and develops them in detail later in his 1797 Metaphysic of Morals. To judge him by the Groundwork and the Critique of Practical Reason taken together, is to do less than justice to the scope of his ethical reflections" (Encyclopedia of Philosoph6y, IV, p. 318).CONDITION: Contemporary ¾-leather with sprinkled boards. There is some light wear to extremities, a small nick to the spine label, and sparsely scattered pencil marginalia inside. Contemporary ownership inscription to front free end paper.

        Proofs of a Conspiracy Against All the Religions and Governments of Europe, Carried on in the Secret Meetings of Free Masons, Illuminati and Reading Societies

      Printed for William Creech and T Cadell, and W. Davies, Edinburgh 1797 - Original gray paper covered boards, white paper spine. Excessively rare first edition of of the first and most elaborate treatise aimed at exposing the excesses and scandals of Free Masons, especially laying claim to the workings of the Illuminati, the most feared of all secret societies in the 18th Century. John Robison (1739-1805) was a noted Scottish physicist and mathematician and professor of philosophy at the University of Edinburgh who in his later years became enamored with promulgating various worldwide conspiracy theories. This work, his chief 'scholarly' output was purported to stem from valid research though chiefly from the testimonies of one man, a 'secret monk' whose name was Alexander Horn. The work was extremely popular and went through many editions including a stated Second Edition in the same year, Third and Fourth Editiions in 1798, etc. It was translated into French, German and other editions appeared through 1803. Robison personally contacted Benjamin Franklin in America to challenge him with the book, and Franklin gave a legnthy written response, in short saying that while Doctrines of the Illuminati had no doubt spread in the United States, that he did not believe the Lodges of the Free Masons "in THIS country had, as Societies, endeavored to propagate the diabolical tenets of the Illuminati." 496 pages. Tope edges shaved, others uncut. All leaves including endsheets original. Includes original three preliminary pages, 1) "To the Right Honorable William Wyndham," 2) poem by Lucretius and 3) Corrections as well as introduction pp. 1-17. Printed on laid paper. A most important and exceedingly scarce survival, a completely unsophisticated copy. Spine has lost all paper, corners bumped, covers soiled; internally clean and bright. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Statuta Ecclesiae Mexicanae necnon Ordo in choro servandus curante Vallisoletanae Ecclesiae capitulo sumptus suppeditante

      Mexici: Apud Marianum Zunnigam, et Ontiverium Folio (27.5 cm; 11"). [1], 140 pp., [2] ff.. 1797 Fray Antonio de San Miguel, the bishop of Michoacan, reprints the statutes promulgated by the Third Mexican Provincial Council (1585) and the "Ordo servandus in choro" of Archbishop Alonso de Montúfar (fl. 1512–70). The archbishop originally established these 42 rules on proper organization and deportment for the choir of the Cathedral of Mexico City. The bishop of Michoacan undoubtedly wished to bring some of this order to his own bishopric and cathedral. Uncommon: WorldCat and NUC Pre-1956 locate only four copies in the U.S. Contemporary vellum over paste boards of printer's waste, vellum cockled and that of the front cover lightly rodent-gnawed at board edges. Worming in text, some of which is meander type, costing letters. Not a great copy, but given the scarcity, an acceptable one.

        Italienische Landschaft mit Gutshaus.

      . Aquarell über Bleistift, auf Velin, links unten signiert "Blaschnik", rechts unten undeutlich bezeichnet "Covigliajo...". 14,5:20,3 cm. Feines bildhaft ausgeführtes Aquarell!. Nach einer Ausbildung in Wien und München ging Blaschnik durch Gemälde C. Rottmanns (1797-1850) angeregt nach Rom, das er über Zwischenstationen in Venedig und Florenz im Oktober 1853 erreichte. Er blieb dort bis 1880. Während dieses Romaufenthaltes unternahm er Reisen nach Neapel und Capri und sandte von dort aus Zeichnungen an die Leipziger Illustrierte Zeitung zur Reproduktion. Auch zeichnete er 1857/58 eine Reihe italienischer Ansichten für das Reisealbum der Kaiserin von Russland. Eine Bestimmung der gezeigten Landschaft ist uns nicht gelungen. Wir vermuten, daß Blaschnik den Ortsnamen nicht korrekt geschrieben hat.

        Schirmbrief mit eigenh. U.

      Hainfeld, 15. V. 1797.. Gedr. Formular, von Sekretärshand ausgefüllt. 1 S. Qu.-Folio.. Schermbrief für "Michl Fritz und Theresia dessen Ehewirthin", denen einige zum Gut Hainfeld dienstbare Liegenschaften gegen jährlichen Zins zur Bewirtschaftung übergeben werden. - Der zum Kreis der österreichischen Kantianer zählende Purgstall hatte bereits in jungen Jahren Kant in Königsberg besucht; nach seiner Rückkehr nach Österreich trat er "zunächst als Volontär bei der niederösterreichischen Regierung in den Staatsdienst und sein Haus ward in Wien bald ein Vereinigungspunkt aller Elemente, welche höhere Bildung und vaterländisches Gefühl verbanden" (ADB XXVI, 716). 1809 wurde er Generalintendant des Heeres von Innerösterreich und von den Franzosen gefangengenommen. Obwohl bald freigelassen, hatte die Kerkerhaft in Mantua seine Gesundheit zerstört, und er starb noch nicht vierzigjährig in Florenz. Sein einziger Sohn Wenzel Raphael überlebte ihn nur um wenige Jahre. Da mit diesem die Linie der Grafen von Purgstall erloschen war, hinterließ die Witwe Gottfrieds dem befreundeten Orientalisten Joseph von Hammer das Gut Hainfeld und den Namen des Hauses Purgstall, welches er an 1836 führte.

        Origine, trasporto in Italia, primi progressi in essa dell'algebra. Printed by Bodoni.

      Reale Tipografia Parma 1797-1799, Parma - History of Algebra, Printed by Bodoni, Inscribed by the AuthorCossali, Pietro. Origine, trasporto in Italia, primi progressi in essa dell'algebra. . . . 2 vols., 4to. [24, incl. blank leaf], 396, [4]; [10], 492, [4]pp. 2 engraved plates. Parma: [Giambattista Bodoni for] Reale Tipografia Parmense, 1797-99. 282 x 203 mm. Quarter calf, speckled boards c. 1799, expertly rebacked, a bit rubbed. Fine, crisp copy, presented by the author to his friend Luigi Bramieri, with the recipient's inscription opposite the title in Vol. I: " Dono graziosissimo dell' egregio autore a me devotissimo suo amico Luigi Bramieri." First Edition. Cossali, the best-known historian of mathematics in 18th-century Italy, taught physics and astronomy at the University of Parma, and was later named by Napoleon to the chair of mathematics at Padua. "He wrote various memoirs on mathematical questions, chiefly algebraic, but is best known for his history of algebra, a work of considerable scholarship and even yet of service to the student of this phase of the subject" (Smith, History of Mathematics, 1, p. 541). "C'est un ouvrage important, plein de recherches auxquelles prÈside la critique la plus ÈclairÈee. Apres avoir examine toutes les opinions contraires, il conclut que l'algebre a ete empruntee aux Indiens par les Arabes, qui l'ont ensuite introduite en Europe" (NBG). Cossali's work was one of the very few scientific books printed by Giambattista Bodoni (1740-1813), the most successful and influential Italian printer of his era, associated with the Royal Press at Parma from 1768 until his death, and proprietor of his own press from 1791. Bodoni "was the most successful early proponent of what is (somewhat misleadingly) referred to as the 'modern' typeface, distinguished by a strong contrast between the thin and thick strokes, and vertical, rather than oblique, shading. His books were produced for the wealthy and the aristocracy, and were more advanced in elegance and refinement than anything else being printed in Europe" (desktoppub [internet reference]). Typefaces based on Bodoni's are still widely used. Brooks, Edizioni Bodoniane, 696. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
