Häftena i en prydlig vinröd kassett med marokängrygg och -hörn samt grön titeletikett (Leonard Gustafsson). Ryggen med några småfläckar.

I del II gamla lagningar på s. 9, 37, 45, 53 101-03 och 109 samt ouppskuren på s. 113-24, 137-44. I sista delen en fuktfläck nedtill i inre marginalen från s. 151 till slutet. Trevlig svit ur Gerard Bonniers bibliotek.. Bring Itineraria svecana 251, 347 respektive 373. Setterwall Svensk historisk bibliografi 6431, 6432 respektive 6433. De anger bägge felaktigt 25 planscher i den andra resan. Affärsmannen, riksheraldikern, konstnären och författaren Jonas Carl Linnerhielm (1758-1829) kan med sina tre resebeskrivningar ses som en svensk representant för den pittoreska reseskildringen, "la voyage pittoresque". Linnerhielm skriver bl.a. "Jag har rest för att se mitt fädernesland: se det; icke forska; och jag har skrifvit hvad jag sett." Hans resor genom Sverige gick från gods till gods och företogs 1787-1807. Teddy Brunius har skrivit att "Linnerhielm sökte sig till landskap, och han betraktar de utvalda landskapen, vilka mestadels är kulturlandskapets odlade mark, som bilder. Täckheten, det måleriska, det pittoreska skildras, men han karaktäriserar också godsens arkitektur och omgivningar." Bland de internationella förebilderna märks S. Gessner, som Linnerhielm beundrade djupt. Linnerhielm var god vän med C. C. Gjörwell och en tid förlovad med dennes dotter Gustafva Eleonora. Han blev sedermera riksheraldiker och kansliråd. I den första resebeskrivningen ingår 34 linjeetsningar, i den andra 27 akvatinter och i den tredje 17 så kallade crayongravyrer, en typ av mjukgrundsetsning. Gunnar Brusewitz har bl.a. i "Resa i tid och rum" skrivit om Linnerhielm: "Under flitigt kringkuskande i landet var han ständigt sysselsatt med att kritiskt värdera landskapets skönhetsvärden. Han bokstavligt talat 'recenserade' den syd- och mellansvenska naturen, som om den skapats av någon som kunde tillrättavisas och manas till bättring." Brusewitz kallar de tre volymerna resebrev "något av det vackraste vi har av bokkonst från decennierna kring 1800."

      Stockholm: J.S. Ekmanson, 1797. Octavo; a very good copy in a modern calf binding. First Swedish edition.

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.

        A Narrative of the Sufferings of T. F. Palmer, and W. Skirving: during a Voyage to New South Wales, 1794, on board the Surprise Transport. By ... Thomas Fyshe Palmer

      Cambridge: printed by Benjamin Flower: for W. H. Lunn, J. Deighton, and J. Nicholson; and sold by J. March, Norwich; J. Abel, Northampton; T. Langdon, Leeds; G.G. and J. Robinson, and T. Conder, London, 1797. First edition, without ad. xii, [13]-74 pp. 1 vols. 8vo. Full period hand-dyed calf, spine gilt with lettering piece, marbled endsheets, ochre edges. Handsome copy of an uncommon work. First edition, without ad. xii, [13]-74 pp. 1 vols. 8vo. A SUPPOSED MUTINY? A scarce copy of the first edition. This is an often overlooked contribution to eighteenth century Australian convict literature. Palmer, a Unitarian minister, was a Scottish political reformer who was charged with sedition and sentenced to seven years transportation. Part of a group called the "Scottish Martyrs," he endured forced labour in England for three months before sailing for Botany Bay in New South Wales. The work here focuses primarily on "the story of the inhuman treatment of Palmer and Skirving by Captain Campbell, master of the Surprise, following the malicious discovery, by Maurice Margarot, a fellow convict and martyr, of a sham plot for capturing the ship. Depositions of the surgeon and members of the New South Wales Corps against Campbell are included" (Ferguson). As a result of the incident Palmer and Skirving were confined to their cabins and ordrinary convicts were flogged in connection. The despatches and letters are all dated 1794 and were written from Sydney Cove. Despite all this, the matter was dropped upon arrival and the reformers, who had letters of introduction to the governor, engaged in farming and commerce in Australia. Skirving died of dysentery in 1796, however the others were released in 1800. This narrative was taken to England by Surgeon and First Fleet author John White where it was put through the press by Palmer's friend Jeremiah Joyce. A second edition was published in the same year. The last copy of this first edition to appear at auction was the Brooke-Hitiching copy (also in a recent binding) the one prior to that appeared in 1977.

        Sketches on various subjects; moral, literary, and political. ..... Second edition

      London: printed for J. Bell. 1797. 8vo., x + 297 + (1)pp., including the half-title, occasional minor foxing, the paper generally lightly found throughout, contemporary sheep, neatly rebacked to match, flat spine gilt with morocco label lettered gilt. A very good copy indeed, from the 19th century library of Rev. William Long with his armorial bookplate> on pastedown. First published in 1796: both editions rather scarce. Henry James Pye (1745-1813), an undistinguished poet (poetaster), actually became poet-laureate in 1790, but wrote 'irreproachably patriotic and ludicrously tame official poetry' (DNB). He was the constant butt of contemporary ridicule, not least by John Wolcot (Peter Pindar) and Lord Byron. His Sketches on various subjects> is a compilation of miscellaneous thoughts on novels, the army, gardening, Shakespeare, marriage, field sports, the weather, cards, resistance to government, gaming, aborigines, and much else. His chapter on marriage (pp. 6-17), however, shows Pye to have the pretty liberal view that divorce should be available to all, not only the rich. 'To compel a man and woman who have a rooted dislike to each other, to continue together for life, because they have inconsiderately engaged to do it under certain specific forms, is a most unjust and cruel law .....'.

        Dissertatio inauguralis medica de methodo cognoscendi curandique animi morbos stabilienda.,

      Jena, Maucke, 1797 - die sehr seltene berühmte Dissertation von Langermann (1768-1832), die von Ideler als "Ausgangspunkt der wissenschaftlichen Seelenheilkunde" bezeichnet wurde. Ideler druckt sie aus Verehrung für seinen Lehrer in seinem "Grundriss der Seelenheilkunde" (Bd. I) fast vollständig neu ab. Reil erwähnte sie in seinen "Rhapsodien." sehr positiv, und "im Verein mit diesem hat sie dann zur Einführung der psychischen Heilmethode wesentlich beigetragen" (KIRCHHOFF I, 42ff.). - In Capitel II geht Langermann ausführlich auf die damalige psychiatrische Literatur ein (Lorry, Arnold, Bolten, Krüger, Nicolai, Weikard et al.). An die eigentliche Dissertation angehängt ist eine "Beylage", in der L. auf deutsch (!) eine "Geschichte eines geheilten, von mir sympathetisch genannten, Wahnsinns" darstellt. - Langermanns Bedeutung liegt auch darin, dass er auf Einladung des Ministers v. Hardenberg sich in Bayreuth niederließ. Nach seinen Plänen wurde das dortige Irrenhaus St. Georgen umgebaut und in eine "Pychische Heilanstalt für Geisteskranke umgewandelt", die er selbst von 1805-1810 als ärztlicher Direktor leitete. Danach ging er nach Berlin und war als Staatsrat in der obersten Leitung der Medizinalangelegenheiten des preußischen Staates tätig. Sprache: de Gewicht in Gramm: 46 Kl.-8°, mod.

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."

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.

        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.

"He sets these consequences out in his lectures on ethics and develops them in detail later in his 1797 Metaphysic of Morals.

        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.

S. Peter Dance notes in "The Art of Natural History" that "zoological art in France [had at this time] an overall uniformity and distinction that was not equalled elsewhere." .

Primo e secondo volume mancanti. Il terzo volume reca al frontespizio la dicitura "Anno primo della Libertà Italiana. Venezia 17. Mietitore (5 luglio S.V.) a spese del cittadino Giuseppe Rossi Q.Bortolo. Registrato al Comitato di Pubblica Istruzione a sola salvezza della Proprietà". I volumi legati in pergamena coeva constano di tagli spruzzati e tasselli con titoli in oro ai dorsi. I volumi cartonati sono in barbe, ad ampi margini. Alcuni cartigli e capilettera incisi. L'Opera inizia la pubblicazione nel 1736. I volumi riferentisi al periodo 1730 - 1735 vengono pubblicati tra il 1737 e il 1742. L'annata 1772 è pubblicata da Antonio Zatta, mentre dal 1790 l'edizione è a cura di Giuseppe Rossi, sempre in Venezia. La stampa cesserà nel 1810. I vari volumi, divisi in libri, trattano di storia italiana ed europea, con specifiche per i singoli paesi ed interessantissime notizie, spesso di prima mano, su eventi bellici, politici e diplomatici. Si tratta di una sorta di sintesi annuale del materiale informativo fornito dalle gazzette, via di mezzo tra la rivista e il primo abbozzo di una storia contemporanea. Di notevole rarità la raccolta quasi completa per quanto concerne il XVIII secolo.
