        Analytische Mechanik aus dem Französischen mit einigen Anmerkungen und erläuternden Zusätzen von Friedrich Wilhelm August Murhard.

      Götingen, Vandenhoeck und Ruprecht, 1797. 4to. Contemp. hcalf. Gilt spine. Titlelabel with gilt lettering. A paperlabel pasted on top of spine. Stamps on title-page. XX,573,(1) pp. Faint browning to a few leaves, otherwise clean and fine.. First German edition of this milestone work in applied mathematics (Mecanique Analitique, 1788) in which Lagrange regarded mechanics as a geometry of four dimensions and here set down the principle of virtual velocities as applied to mechanics. The work can lay claim today to be "one of the outstanding landmarks in the history of both mathematics and mechanics" (Sarton)."This is the first textbook to treat theoretical mechanics in a purely analytic way. Its mathematical importence stems mainly from the application of Lagrange's new formalization of the calculus of variations, and its significance for rational mechanics from the fact that it summarizes, for the first time in a logically coherent way, the conformity the newtonian and continental mechanics of the 18th century on the basis of general variational principles."(Helmut Pulte in "Landmark Writings in Western mathematics 1640-1940).Horblit, 61 ("Discovery of the general equations of motions of any system of bodies"). - Dibner, 112 (French edition)

        SPECIMENS OF BRITISH MINERALS, selected from the Cabinet of Philip Rashleigh. PART 1.

      London, printed by W. Bulmer and Co., 1797.FIRST EDITION 1797, PART 1 ONLY, PART 2 PUBLISHED IN 1802. 4to, approximately 290 x 235 mm, 11½ x 9¼ inches, 33 aquatint plates of minerals, mostly hand coloured, with mutiple images showing 194 specimens, several with manuscript plate numbers neatly added in old ink, pages: [4], 56, [2], bound in half calf, green gilt lettered label and gilt rules between raised bands to spine, marbled boards, pale green endpapers, watermark to text pages dated 1794. Spine and boards rubbed, corners worn, one with small repair, pale offset from images to text, page 52 has the number 8 crossed out in ink and number 6 inked in above, occasional small fox spot, a little light crinkling to inner margin of title page and last page, occasional light mark to blank margins, engraved bookplate with one corner torn off to first pastedown, otherwise a very good copy. See: Sotheby's catalogue of The Magnificent Scientific Library of Joseph A. Freilich, page 384, No 451. Philip Rashleigh is famous among mineral collectors for the superb collection of Cornish minerals he assembled, and for the two illustrated volumes he published in 1797 and 1802 describing his collection. The expansion of tin and copper mining during his life time led to Rashleigh's interest in mineralogy. Initially through his own efforts, he amassed a significant mineral collection, but later added to it by exchange and purchase from British and European collectors and dealers. It was, and still remains, unrivalled for its content of Cornish specimens. The upper zones of the rich Cornwall deposits were being exploited when Rashleigh formed the collection and he obtained a tremendous variety of unusual and rare minerals, many of them known only from this region and several only from his specimens. He was ahead of his time in cataloguing the source and locality of the specimens, Oxford Dictionary of National Biography.

One small tear to blank, a couple of pages have very mild creasing to the very edges and the final leaf has small, well-repaired tears, very mild browning to the edges of three leaves. Signature "D.N. Barbour, Dec. 1915" on first blank, stamp of Riviere and Henry Sotheran on verso of ffep. A very good copy, with excellent large margins so without the usual aggressive trimming which has often removed the dates from the engravings of a great number of copies. With the oft lacking "Explanation of the Engravings" leaf, probably by Henry Fuseli. Blake worked particularly hard on this book, making over 500 drawings for only 43 engravings, which can be seen in the British Museum. The end result is spectacular and the setting of the pages remarkable. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Paris, Crapelet, (1797). 8vo. 15 p. In 1793 the prolific engraver Laurent Guyot (1756-1806) developed the project of an independent institution devoted to the promotion of his profession. It should comprise an engraving school open also for girls, printing facilities, a national archive, and a permanent sales exhibition. In 1797 Guyot read his detailed programme to the anti-academic and voluntary Société du Point Central des Arts et Métiers housed in the Louvre. The society adopted Guyot?s idea and submitted an official draft (the Plan sommaire) to the revolutionary government. - Guyot engraved a pair of elevations for a matching building which can be viewed on the French Revolution Digital Archive maintained by Stanford University Librairies and the BnF. These plates are not bound, however, with any of the seven copies we locate. We suppose the sheets were published separately and could be added at will. - A clean copy.

Questi tre volumi costituiscono tutto il pubblicato delle opere, originariamente previsto in otto volumi. In essi sono contenuti: la Vita dell Autore scritta dall accademico fiorentino Francesco Maria Solvini, la Relazione del Collegio delle Balie latine, il Vocabolario Cateriniano. Quest ultima opera, pubblicata la prima volta nel 1717, era stata condannata al rogo da Cosimo de Medici e costò al Gigli l esilio, l obbligo di ritrattazione e l uscita dall Accademia della Crusca. Il motivo fondamentale di tale vicenda consistette nell accusa allo scrittore senese di aver cercato di dimostrare la supremazia della lingua senese sulla fiorentina prendendo a riferimento l eleganza e la correttezza di molte espressioni usate da Santa Caterina. 8vo (cm. 19,7), 3 Voll., VLIV-248 pp. con una tav. f.t. incisa su rame; CXCVIII- 138 pp. con una tav. f.t. incisa su rame; 332 pp. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

This is all in reaction to theFrench expedition to Ireland, which was monitored by the British Fleetunder Colpoys. Despite all the bustle reported in these communications,the British fleet was ineffective and Colpoys was replaced. Fortunatelyfor the British, though maybe not so fortunate for Irish patriots, theweather accomplished what the Royal Navy could not, sending the Frenchfleet home in tatters.

        Memorie sulla elettricita animale . al celebre Abate Lazzaro Spallanzani. Aggiunte alcune elettriche esperienze di Gio. Aldini.

      Bologna, Sassi, 1797 - 4to (234 x 180 mm), pp [ii] 105 [5], with two folding engraved plates, printed in sepia; some occasional faint spotting, a very good copy in marbled boards. £3750First edition and Galvani's last work, containing his final defence of 'animal electricity' against the criticisms of Alessandro Volta, and his most complete account of experiment that is regarded as the foundation of electrophysiology. It contains as an appendix (pp 87-105) further experiments by Galvani's nephew and chief defender Giovanni Aldini. These are addressed to Lacépède.'Alessandro Volta . was among the first to take up the new theory of animal electricity, but by 1792/1793 his original support turned to skeptical reserve. In papers published in the Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society, Volta professed belief in Galvani's theory but simultaneously advanced the thesis that the "metals used in the experiments, being applied to the moist bodies of animals, can by themselves . excite and dislodge the electric fluid from its state of rest, so that the organs of the animal act only passively." By the end of 1793 Volta had discarded Galvani's animal electricity for his own theory of "contact," according to which conducting bodies of certain kinds, especially metals, can by their mere contact excite electrical fluid, which can in turn stimulate various irritable responses. Galvani was not prepared to concede defeat, and he and his nephew Giovanni Aldini mounted a campaign in the mid-1790s to establish beyond doubt the existence of a special animal electricity. In 1794 and 1797 he announced experiments employing only frog nerve-muscle preparations (without metals) and showed that convulsive contractions could be produced merely by touching nerves to muscles.'At the same time, Galvani extensively examined the electrical properties of marine torpedoes. He found that the strong electrical discharge is generated in these animals in structures analogous to ordinary nerves and muscles, and this seemed to supply additional support for the theory of animal electricity. Volta's counterattack led in 1799 to his invention of the pile, a stack of metal-metal-moist-conductor elements which was, in fact, the first primitive wet-cell battery. Nevertheless, support for the concept of animal electricity survived into the nineteenth century and ultimately led in the 1840s to the basic work of Emil du Bois-Reymond' (DSB).The preliminary announcement of Galvani's experiment without metals was published anonymously by Aldini in 1794 in a supplement to Dell' Uso e dell' Attiva dell' Arco Conduttore nelle Contrazioni dei Muscoli,one of the great rarities of Galvani literature.The present work consists of five 'memoirs', written 1794-1797. The first discusses the theories of Volta. The second contains the description of the famous experiment involving direct contact of nerve fibres and muscles, without the use of metals that has been considered crucial for the science of electrophysiology. The third and fourth expand on the third. The final paper concerns Galvani's investigations of the torpedo fish discussed above.Gartrell 197; Overmier p 63; Ronalds 91; Wellcome III p 86; Wheeler Gift 606

        Pasigraphie... premiers élémens du nouvel art-science d'écrire et d'imprimer et une langue de manière a être lu et entendu dans toute autre langue sans traduction; inventés et rédigés par J.*** De M***, ancien Major d'infanterie allemands. ... Première édition, originale comme l'édition en langue allemande

      Paris, au bureau de la Pasigraphie, 1797. 4to., (4) + 66 + 63 + (1)pp., blank strip cut away from lower margin of last leaf, title-page a bit dust-soiled and with the initials 'A.G.' ink-stamped in margin, occasional light foxing, corners of some leaves curled, old, probably original, marbled wrappers, entirely uncut. A good copy. First edition in French (published at the same time as a German language printing). A portrait was apparently supplied on request to subscribers (printed note on title verso) but is not present here. An interesting proposal for a new lingua franca or universal language. Joseph De Maimieux emigrated to Germany during the French Revolution, but returned to France in 1797 where he immediately published his Pasigraphie>. 'Although several other schemes of universal language were to appear in the course of the 1790s, none aroused more than a fraction of the interest that greeted the Pasigraphie> (1797) of Joseph de Maimieux ... The invention was praised, for example, by Goupil-Préfelne as being of as great importance to humanity as the invention of printing. It was presented to Napoleon who is said to have admired it considerably ... The work was submitted in 1798 to the second class of the Institut national for its approval, and it is for this reason above all that it merits attention. For it served not only to inspire memoirs on pasigraphy from Joseph Marie de Gérando, Destutt de Tracy, and Pierre-Louis Roederer, but also formed the basis for a theoretical, and at times profound, discussion of universal language that was to continue for several years to be 'une des constantes préoccupations de la section de philosophie'.' [Knowlson, Univeresal Language Schemes>, pp.153-155.] The Foreword is by the Abbé Sicard, the French expert on the education of deaf-mutes.

        The Anti-Jacobin; or, Weekly Examiner. [To be continued every Monday during the Sitting of Parliament] (No.1. [Monday, November 20, 1797] - No.36. [Monday, July 9, 1798] complete with original Prospectus.

      London: Published by J Wright: -98 1797 - folio, 36 original issues (all published), in newspaper form, each with three halfpenny stamp, complete with original prospectus at front, bound in contemporary marbled boards, rubbed on extremities, later reback with paper title label to spine. A generally VG clean and complete set with all but the last number uncut of this rare item. The Anti-Jacobin, or, Weekly Examiner was an English newspaper founded by George Canning in 1797 and devoted to opposing the radicalism of the French Revolution. The Revolution polarized British political opinion in the 1790s, with conservatives outraged at killing of the king, the expulsion of the nobles, and the Reign of Terror. Britain went to war against Revolutionary France. Conservatives castigated every radical opinion in Britain as "Jacobin" (in reference to the leaders of the Terror), warning that radicalism threatened an upheaval of British society. The Anti-Jacobin sentiment was expressed in print. William Gifford was its editor. Its first issue was published on 20 November 1797 and during the parliamentary session of 1797–98 it was issued every Monday. The Anti-Jacobin consisted of 36 issues printed from November 20, 1797 until July 9, 1798. These 36 issues amounted to only 288 pages; however, the Anti-Jacobin is considered one of the most influential and effective periodicals published for both literature and politics. There are two significant stylistic features of the Anti-Jacobin that contributes to these positive remarks: the mass amount of factual material and the straightforward, brief nature that the material was presented in. The Anti-Jacobin is believed to have originated from George Canning's involvement in peace negotiations with France in 1797 when he was the undersecretary of state for foreign affairs. The coup d'état caused these negotiations to end abruptly on September 4, 1797. This led Canning to revert his attention towards his home, England, where he decided to write a letter to George Ellis on October 19, 1797. This letter contained Canning’s proposal to write a periodical that was to include humour, good principles, and frank reasoning that would influence the public to side with the anti-Jacobins. With the help of fellow Tory Parliament members John Hookham Frere (Canning’s school friend) and George Ellis, Canning was able to commission the publication of the Anti-Jacobin to Wright. The anti-Jacobins established their headquarters in a vacated, secret house nearby Wright where they would congregate every Sunday before each new issue was released. William Gifford, the editor of the periodical, had established his style by writing poems like the Baviad (1794) and Maeviad (1795), which satirized Robert Merry, a Jacobin writer, and the Della Cruscans. Pitt, Jenkinson, Hammond, Baron Macdonald, and Marquis Wellesley were also contributors to the periodical. The Anti-Jacobin satirized many famous poets, scientists, philosophers, politicians, explorers, pedagogues, and demagogues.[14] "It was to its satire that it owed both its influence and its fame, and of this satire much was in verse, some of the most telling poems being from Canning’s pen," (Marshall 179). These groups and individuals included: The French and their British allies, radicals, William Wordsworth, Samuel Taylor Coleridge, Robert Southey, Percy Bysshe Shelley, Erasmus Darwin, Thomas Paine, William Godwin, and Mary Wollstonecraft.[15] Styles of poetry that were commonly mocked in the Anti-Jacobin were Orientalism, Gothic, Darwinian didactic couplets, German Drama, and sentimentalism.

Some marginal spotting. Small inkstain on title-page. Overall in fine condition. ---- FIRST EDITION of the first Portuguese bibliography to concentrate on material concerning Portuguese possessions overseas, including America; rare. A second, expanded edition appeared in 1801. The bibliography describes several hundred works?in prose and verse, printed and manuscript?chronicling the history of Portugal and its possessions in Asia, Africa, America, and the Atlantic. It is particularly useful for its comments on manuscript accounts?most still unpublished?of the Portuguese settlements in Brazil, Angola, Mozambique, and the Moluccas. Also included are content descriptions, brief biographical notes on the authors, and author and subject indexes.

The second text was published for the first time in Berlin in 1784 following this closely "subject proposed by the Academy of Berlin." Tchemerzine V, 403: 'This edition, well printed, is also sought as the original. Half black chagrin mid nineteenth Jansenist. Back to 4 nerves. The keynote speech is an ambitious book, both a reflection on the phonetic, linguistic reflection, and a book of philosophy of language, which considers that one can not speak of man and the world of ideas, not to mention language and speech. The second book is raised to the glory of French monument, "What is not clear is not French." Rivaroli born son of an Italian innkeeper, Antoine Rivarol tutor in Lyon and then in Paris, introduced in the halls calling himself Count Rivarol, it will be famous in his time to fight the glories of the time, writers and philosophers , against Beaumarchais, Buffon or Mirabaud, with violence and a real talent for satire and controversy. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate. Contact us for any information! - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Edition originale. Deux éditions ont paru dans le même temps, cette dernière, et une seconde à Hambourg, chez Fauche. Voir Tchemerzine V, 409. La suite de ce discours préliminaire, tant que le fameux dictionnaire, ne verront jamais le jour. Le second texte a paru pour la première fois à Berlin en 1784 suivant en cela de près le « sujet proposé par l'académie de Berlin ». Tchemerzine V, 403 : 'Cette édition, très bien imprimée, est aussi recherchée que l'originale'. Reliure en demi chagrin noir milieu XIXe janséniste. Dos à 4 nerfs. Le discours préliminaire est un ouvrage ambitieux, à la fois une réflexion sur la phonétique, une réflexion linguistique, et un livre de philosophie du langage, qui considère qu'on ne saurait parler de l'homme, et du monde des idées, sans parler de langage et de parole. Le second ouvrage est un monument élevé à la gloire de la langue française, « ce qui n'est pas clair n'est pas français ». Né Rivaroli, fils d'un aubergiste italien, Antoine Rivarol, précepteur à Lyon puis à Paris, s'introduit dans les salons en se faisant appeler Comte de Rivarol, il sera célèbre en son temps pour combattre les gloires du moment, écrivains ou philosophes, contre Beaumarchais, Buffon ou Mirabaud, avec une violence et un réel talent pour la satire et la polémique.
