        Voyage autour du monde , sur le vaisseau de Sa Majeste Britannique l'Endeavour... avec les planches de l'auteur

      Paris: De l'Imprimerie de Guillaume, 1797. Two volumes, octavo, good impressions of the six folding engraved plates after Parkinson, a few leaves a little foxed; a particularly handsome set in contemporary French mottled calf, flat spine gilt, double red and tan morocco labels. First French issue. First French edition, first issue: the rarely sighted French edition of the artist's account of Cook's first voyage and the discovery of eastern Australia. Translated by C. Henri from the 1784 English edition, it also contains material from later voyagers updating the account, including the experiences of the Forsters on the second voyage. This is the octavo issue noted by Kroepelien as preceding the otherwise identical quarto of the same year. Parkinson had been employed in 1767 by Sir Joseph Banks, who thought so highly of his work that he arranged for the young man to join him on Cook's first voyage. When the expedition's draughtsman Alexander Buchan died at Tahiti, Parkinson was called on to take over all of the topographical work, completing some 1300 sketches, quite apart from compiling vocabularies in Tahiti and New Holland. At the end of the voyage, en route from Batavia to the Cape of Good Hope, he died of a fever, and after the return of the Endeavour ownership of his manuscripts and drawings was disputed: Banks considered that they were his, while Parkinson's brother Stanfield claimed them under the provisions of his brother's will. When Hawkesworth learned of the impending publication of this work, he got an injunction to delay its appearance until some time after his official account, and, despite having used Parkinson's work extensively, retaliated by deliberately omitting Parkinson's name from the narrative: even the botanical illustrations in the official account have no credit to the artist. Some of the bibliographical history of this work is quite complex. An extended note by Rolf du Rietz in the Kroepelien catalogue explains that this octavo issue, although textually identical to a quarto issue published the same year by the same publisher, is actually the genuine first issue (du Rietz demonstrates from an error in the signatures that the quarto was "re-imposed"). Du Rietz only knew the octavo from a copy in the University of Oslo, although no complete census of the two issues has ever been attempted. A note in O'Reilly-Reitman suggests - as if we needed more complexity - that the number of plates is uncertain, as they examined copies with any number between five and eight; nonetheless, six plates is the standard collation.

        Billet mit eighd. Widmung dat. 21.May 1856 auf der Fahrt nach Linz, sowie eine Carte de visite mit Umschlag: "Ida Pfeiffer die große Weltreisende 3 Mahl um die Welt gereist ist, die Bekanntschaft auf der Fahrt nach Linz im Jahre 1856".

      0 - Geringfügige Gbrsp. - Pfeiffer, (1797 - 1858), stammte aus einer Kaufmannsfamilie und heiratete 1820 einen Lemberger Advokaten, von dem sie sich 1835 wieder trennte. Als ihre beiden Söhne, mit denen sie anschließend in Wien lebte, erwachsen waren, konnte sie 1842 ihre erste Reise realisieren. Ihre Aufzeichnungen aus Palästina, 1844 in zwei Bänden veröffentlicht, wurden ein Verkaufserfolg. Es folgten weitere fünf große Reisen, darunter zwei Weltreisen. Ihre vielgelesenen Reiseberichte (Meine zweite Weltreise, 4 Bde., 1856) sowie ihre naturwissenschaftlichen Sammlungen verschafften P. großes Ansehen und Bewunderer wie Alexander von Humboldt und Carl Ritter. Die Geographischen Gesellschaften von Paris und Berlin ernannten P. zu ihrem Ehrenmitglied. Von ihrer letzten Reise nach Madagaskar (1856-58) kehrte P. krank nach Wien zurück. Sie war als reisende Frau in der Zeit des Biedermeiers eine viel beachtete Ausnahmeerscheinung. (DBE) - Eine Abbildung finden Sie auf unserer Homepage: www.antiquariat-weinek.at .

        Saturday morning Favorite Chickens going to market; Saturday evening The Husbandman's return from labour

      J. Brydone, London 1797 - A fine pair of colour-printed stipple engravings: rural idylls in 18th-century England. In the first a family is seen outside the front door of their house set in a largely wooded landscape. The two eldest children prepare for the trip to market. The boy feeds the donkey, whilst his sister gestures to her younger sister to pass her the last of four chickens she is putting in a basket ready for the journey. The two youngest daughters are comforted by their mother as they mourn the imminent departure of their 'pets'. The second image shows a family outside the door of their cottage in a similar setting to the first image. The father has just returned from the field. His wife hands him his youngest child, who he kisses fondly. His other four children are gathered companionably to his left: the eldest daughter sits quietly darning some stockings, her younger sister washes a younger brother. A second brother watches attentively as a pair of piglets eat the scraps from a wicker basket. William Bigg "was a pupil of Edward Penny, R.A., and by choice of his subjects at least a faithful follower of his master. In 1778 he entered the Academy schools. Bigg delighted in depicting. children. The first of many engaging works of this class was exhibited in 1778, 'Schoolboys giving Charity to a Blind Man.' It was followed a year later by one similar, 'A Lady and her Children relieving a Distressed Cottager.' Besides these his 'Palemon and Lavinia,' the 'Shipwrecked Sailor Boy,' and 'Youths relieving a Blind Man' were highly popular works, and were all engraved. Two good pictures from his easel are preserved in the Cottonian Museum at Plymouth. by choice of subjects and general manner of treatment he would rightly be classed with Wheatley and Morland. He was highly popular in his day, and the best engravers were employed upon his work." (DNB). Stipple engravings, printed in colours, by Thomas Burke (the first) or William Nutter, after Bigg. (Expert marginal repairs).

        Alphabetum Arabicum. Una Cum Oratione Dominicali Salutatione Angelica et Symbolo Fidei

      1797. Rome, Propaganda Fide, 1797. 15pp. Unbound. Woodcut vignette on titlepage and one vignette in the text. One of the rare publications of the Propagande Fide that was established in 1626 for propaganda among the Eastern peoples. Ferdinand II presented Illyrian types for a missal, and the Mediciean and other Oriental types from the Stamperia Vaticana were added to its stock, while Stefano Paolini engraved others. It continued its existence throughout the XVIIth and XVIIIth centuries: Bodoni received his early training here. In 1789 most of the types were taken to Paris, where in 1805 an edition of the Lord's Prayer in 150 languages was printed as a compliment at the time of Napoleon's coronation. Much of the type still remains at the Imprimerie Nationale. [Not in Birrell & Garnett, Smitskamp PO 216; Brunet I, 197].

      London, printed for John Stockdale, 1797.Abridged principally from the papers of Earl MaCartney, as compiled by Sir George Staunton, Bart. FIRST ABRIDGED EDITION 1797, 8vo, approximately 205 x 125 mm, 8 x 5 inches, engraved frontispiece, engraved added title page with vignette, 2 folding maps, one of China with the route of the ships, one of the journey by land from Zhehol in Tartary to Canton, and 21 engraved plates, of which 8 have 2 images, plates engraved by Dadley, Grignion, Sansom, Sparrow, Audinet and Owen, pages: xv, [1], 475, [5], bound in modern half calf over marbled boards, gilt dividing lines, gilt raised bands to spine, richly gilt in compartments, gilt lettered red morocco label, new endpapers. A little pale foxing to margins of frontispiece, engraved title, and 1 or 2 plates, edges of plates slightly browned, letterpress title page faintly browned.

Nicol in 2 volumes 1797. Lord Macartney was appointed by George III in 1792 to be the first British ambassador to China. He was to negotiate commercial treaties for the export of tea and for the import of British goods to pay for the tea. He took with him a sizeable retinue amongst whom George Staunton was one of a number of people who published accounts of the journey and mission. Staunton's work is especially interesting for the detailed account of the stages of the journey and his description of Chinese manners and customs (including the binding of women's feet). Howgego, Encyclopedia of Exploration Volume I, page 657, M2; Cordier, Bibliotheca Sinica, Volume II, 2383; Lowendahl, China Illustrata Nova, Volume II, 698; Cox, Volume I, page 344 lists Staunton's "Authentic Account" but not our version.

        The Works of Alexander Pope Esq. In Nine Volumes, Complete

      Law, et al., London 1797 - Nine volumes, octavo, engraved frontispiece; early half blue straight-grained morocco and marbled boards, rubbed, a handsome set. A handsome eighteenth century edition of the complete works of the poet and satirist Alexander Pope. It contains one of the most important pieces of English literature, An Essay on Man. This was widely read on publication, and occasioned a response from Voltaire, La Loi Naturelle of 1756. Pope was very attached to the work, and crushed by some of the negative responses it engendered, in particular its demolition by a Swiss professor, Jean-Pierre de Crousaz. Not until his Works were first published in 1735 did Pope firmly claim authorship of the work, commenting: 'If I could flatter myself that this Essay has any merit, it is in steering betwixt the extremes of doctrines seemingly opposite, in passing over terms utterly unintelligible, and in forming a temperate yet not inconsistent, and a short yet not imperfect system of Ethics'.

Philadelphia, 2 pluviose, an 5 (January 24, 1797). 1 page plus integral address leaf. 230 x 188 mm. Portion of letter (approx. 40 x 80 mm.) torn away from left margin when opened, affecting 4 lines of text, smaller portion of address leaf torn away when seal was broken, not affecting text. Very good otherwise.</p><p>Rare autograph letter from French émigré physician Jean Devèze, best known for his feud with Benjamin Rush over the treatment of yellow fever during Philadelphia epidemic of 1793, to Theodore Charles Mozard, regarding the latter&#39;s admission to the American Philosophical Society. Devèze was then chief physician of a French military hospital established in Philadelphia; he had been admitted to the American Philosophical Society the year before. His letter can be translated in part as follows:</p><p>"It is with great pleasure, my dear son and confrere, that I announce to you that you were elected a member of this city&#39;s Philosophical Society yesterday evening. An unfortunate quarrel between me and another over a member&#39;s right to propose candidates forced me to observe formalities and delayed your admission until this moment. You should not doubt my pleasure in being a member of the same society as yourself . . . [I beg you] to send me your baptismal name . . . so that I can expedite your diploma, which I will send you as soon as I have it in hand . . . "</p><p>Devèze had arrived in Philadelphia from Santo Domingo (now Hispaniola) in the summer of 1793, during the yellow fever epidemic that was then devastating the city. Because of his extensive experience with the disease on Santo Domingo, he was immediately appointed head of Bush Hill, a yellow fever hospital in Philadelphia, where he treated patients by keeping them comfortable and clean and administering quinine and stimulants. Devèze&#39;s conservative treatment regimen contrasted sharply with that of Benjamin Rush, who advocated extensive bloodletting to combat the disease. Both Devèze and Rush published accounts of the yellow fever epidemic in 1794, but Devèze&#39;s went largely ignored for sixty years, until brought to light in La Roche&#39;s Yellow Fever Considered in its Historical, Pathological and Therapeutical Relations (1855).</p><p>Devèze&#39;s correspondent Mozard was Consul of the French Republic at Boston. Unlike Devèze, who ended up settling in the United States (where his descendants changed their name to Dewees), Mozard left the country in 1798 after having his consulship revoked by President John Adams.</p>

An extended note by Rolf du Rietz in the Kroepelien catalogue explains that this octavo issue, although textually identical to a quarto issue published the same year by the same publisher, is actually the genuine first issue (du Rietz demonstrates from an error in the signatures that the quarto was "re-imposed"). Du Rietz only knew the octavo from a copy in the University of Oslo, although no complete census of the two issues has ever been attempted. A note in O'Reilly-Reitman suggests - as if we needed more complexity - that the number of plates is uncertain, as they examined copies with any number between five and eight; nonetheless, six plates is the standard collation.

        Le tarsier podje / . vol.13 / des Iles moluques" [original watercolour sketch for 'Le Tarsier / Tarsius Daubentonii']

      - Original pencil, bodycolour and watercolour by Audebert, on laid paper. Fine condition. Sheet size: 20 3/4 x 13 3/4 inches. A very fine original watercolour by Audebert: an original of an image that was published as the print titled 'Le Tarsier' in his first great natural history book 'Histoire Naturelle des Singes' (Paris: 1797-1800). Although the present drawing is unsigned, it is clearly by Audebert. This fine watercolour gives some insight into the working methods of one of the most highly respected pioneers of a golden era in natural history publications in France. Audebert, a painter by training, was born at Rochefort. His interest in natural history was stimulated by a commission to help with the preparation of the plates for G. A. Olivier's work on Coleoptera. This drawing is an original for Audebert's Histoire Naturelle des Singes, the only publication of his own work to be completed during his life-time, which was published in ten parts between 1797 and 1800. He died in 1800, in Paris, leaving notes and drawings for a number of other works which were published after his death. Tarsiers are nocturnal, arboreal, insect- eating animals. They live in the coastal rainforests and bamboo thickets of Sumatra, Borneo, Sulawesi, Mindanao and the Philippines.

Kleiner Einriß rechts unten, durch das Aufziehen sind im unteren Teil der Zeichnung einige kleine Luftblasen entstanden. Die Vorlage zu dieser Zeichnung ist noch unbekannt.. Der Lithograph und Kupferstecher Strixner erhielt zunächst Unterricht in Wasserburg. Nach seinem Umzug nach München 1797 studierte er an der "Feyertagsschule" für Handwerker und Künstler unter dem Direktor H.J. Mitterer (1764-1829) weiter. 1799 erlernte er das Kupferstechen. 1803 erhielt er eine Anstellung in der kurfürstlichen Sammlung München. Um 1806 wurde er neben F. Piloty (1768-1844) von J. C. von Mannlich (1741-1822) ausgebildet. 1820 und 1828 lebte er in Stuttgart, wo er die wichtigsten Stücke der zwischen 1820 und 1833 veröffentlichte Reihe über die "Sammlung der Alt-Niederländer- und Ober-Deutschen Gemälde der Brüder Sulpiz und Melchior Boisseree und Johann Bertram" wiedergab. 1828 kehrte er nach München zurück.

Raised bands and gilt lettering on the spine, rules in blind and punched gilt dots along the sides. Top edge gilt. Printed title, preface and list of subscribers, have been supplied in manuscript (likely by W.F.D.Smith) on Greenlands letter paper.

Wanting fold-out map. Langley (1769 - 1801) was curate to Bradenham and Taplow from 1793 and became a keen collector of the antiquities of Buckinghamshire. However his literary work, The Hundred of Desborough, although full of poetical descriptions was sadly lacking in scholarly method [DNB].

      Troy: Printed for the Author by Luther Pratt, 1797 - Duodecimo (157 × 98 mm). Contemporary sheep, black label to spine. Contemporary ownership inscription, dated 1806, of William Coon to the front endpapers. A little rubbed, contents browned as often, short splits at the head of frontispiece and title page, now repaired with archival tissue, a very good copy. Frontispiece. Second edition, same year as the first. Complete with the frontispiece showing "the Author relating the History of his Travels," which is often lacking. Recommendations from Benjamin Rush ("I feel myself indebted to you ") and Dr. Felix Pascalis[-Ouvrière], vice-president of the Chemical Society of Philadelphia, and president of the Philadelphia College of Physicians ("I have read with pleasure your History of your voyage to the coast of Africa") on page iii-iv. "Is this the first account of an African voyage by an American? Hawkins set sail from Charleston late in 1793. He travelled extensively and perilously in the country of the Ibos, who then were engaged in warfare with their neighbours. Much of the author's narrative describes a Galla invasion into Ibo territory. He was well treated by the Africans, and learned much about their customs and laws. His description of the Ibo capital is worth noting: 'Their streets were laid out with a considerable regard to order, so as even to be observed at a distance; there was not anything of grandeur, it is true, but certainly a degree of elegant simplicity and neatness which I did not expect to find.' He was impressed by these Africans but not by the white factors on the coast who lived a debauched and lazy life" (Wolf). Some questions have been raised as to the complete veracity of Hawkins's account (cf. Fage, Hawkins' Hoax? A Sequel to Drake's Fake, History in Africa, vol. 18), but it is referred to frequently on the Smithsonian's website in relation to the details of the American maritime trade in the eighteenth century.

        CONSIDÉRATIONS SUR LA FRANCE.

      1797 - Londres [Bregenz, en Autriche?], en Commission chez J. Brentano, Libraire à Bregence, 1797. In-12 (107 X 173) demi-basane fauve à coins de vélin, dos lisse ornés de filets, rosaces et fleurons dorés, pièce de titre maroquin ocre (reliure de l'époque); (2) ff. de faux-titre et titre, IV-246 pages. Feuillets uniformément roussis. Ex-libris gravé «Du Pac». RARISSIME CONTREFAÇON parue l'année de l'édition originale de ce LIVRE FONDATEUR. C'est le chef-d?oeuvre de Joseph de Maistre: il contient en germe tous les autres ouvrages de l'auteur. Rigoureusement interdit dès sa parution par les autorités françaises, il ne circula que sous le manteau et demeurera anonyme jusqu'à l'édition parisienne de 1821. Notre édition, tout comme l'édition originale publiée à Neuchâtel en avril 1797, et non à Bâle comme affirmé communément, possède la mention fictive de «Londres» sur le titre. UNE ÉDITION INCONNUE DES BIBLIOGRAPHES : imprimé sur vergé fin, notre édition annoncée «en Commission chez J. Brentano, Libraire à Bregence» est inconnue de Monglond, Talvart, Vicaire, Barbier et Clouzot. Monglond évoque seulement une édition publiée en 1802 par Brentano à «Bregenz», qui serait la première édition du XIXe siècle. Le chapitre XII, "Desiderantur", annoncé à la table, n'a jamais paru. Notre édition est strictement identique à l'édition originale: l'avertissement est composé en un corps plus gros que le reste du texte, la faute p. 147 «tyrannie» au lieu de «dynastie» n'a pas été corrigée, contrairement à ce qui avait été fait pour la première réimpression en 246 pages mentionnée par Monglond. Dans notre exemplaire, seule la pagination a été corrigée, car l'édition originale affichait «242 pages» en raison d'une erreur de numérotation page 241, alors qu'elle en contenait bien 246. La seule autre distinction concerne les bois gravés de la page de titre, et ceux présents à la fin de l'avertissement et en tête du chapitre premier: ils sont différents de ceux de l'édition originale, mais aussi de la première réimpression de 1797 en 246 pages. On peut donc estimer que notre édition est la première véritable contrefaçon de l'originale. La mention «en Commission chez J. Brentano, Libraire à Bregence», en bas de la page de titre, reste énigmatique. Nous n'avons trouvé cette mention que sur un seul autre titre: "Défense des Immigrés Français, adressée au Peuple français, du marquis Trophime Gérard Lally-Tollendal", publié en 1797 à Hambourg, chez P. F. Fauche. Or, c?est LouisFauche-Borel, agent royaliste à la solde de la Prusse et de l'Angleterre, qui a publié l'édition originale des "Considérations" en avril 1797. UN BRÛLOT CONTRE-RÉVOLUTIONNAIRE : fils du président du Sénat de Savoie, élevé dans son Chambéry natal, Joseph de MAISTRE (1754-1821) était sarde, et non français. La suppression des Parlements, la réunion de la Savoie à la France et l'exécution de Louis XVI le jetèrent pourtant dans les rangs des adversaires enragés des hommes et des idées de 1789. En 1797, il fit paraître ses "Considérations sur la France" qui enthousiasmèrent les partisans des Bourbons par son analyse en profondeur des causes, du développement et de l'avenir de la Révolution. LIVRE LUCIDE ET PROPHÉTIQUE, servi par un style admirable, il prévoit dans les moindres détails la manière dont se déroulera la Restauration. L'ouvrage produisit une vive et profonde impression sur la haute société européenne, s'inscrivant en faux contre le manifeste de Benjamin Constant en faveur du ralliement à la République. Son espérance d'une résurrection d'un pouvoir charismatique à caractère sacré exercé par un sauveur guidé par Dieu a toujours rencontré des adeptes. Mais cette postérité de l'intolérance a relégué dans les oubliettes de la mémoire collective ces "Considérations" pourtant bien supérieures tant par le style que par sa juste vision de la société française, aux "Soirées de Saint-Pétersbourg". Cette apologie de l'Ancien Régime ouvre la voie aux ultras de la Restauration qui deviendront les

      1797-98 1797 - Madrid, Gabriel de Sancha, 1797-98. Cinq tomes en quatre volumes in-8 (135 X 204) basane fauve marbrée, encadrement de triple filet doré sur les plats, dos cinq nerfs ornés de hachures dorées, caissons ornés aux petits fers et fleuron, large dentelle en queue, pièces de titre et de tomaison maroquin ocre et vert sapin, tranches marbrées (reliure de l'époque).

Tache brune à la tranche inférieure du premier volume. LA MEILLEURE ÉDITION DE DON QUICHOTTE DANS SA LANGUE ORIGINALE, selon Renouard. Elle a été très bien imprimée à Madrid, en langue castillane. Au texte très épuré de l?édition d?Ibarra, donnée par l?Académie, elle joint de nombreuses et intéressantes notes, un discours préliminaire, un index et d?autres pièces. 33 PLANCHES hors-texte par Camaron, Meredo, Monnet, Porret, Taxadas, Navarra et R. Ximenos, gravées sur vélin fort par Duflos, Morenos et Taxadas, DEUX VIGNETTES par Porret gravées par Taxadas, DEUX PLANS dépliants dont l?un contient une vue, et UNE GRANDE CARTE dépliante aux délimitations coloriées intitulée «Carta geografica de los vlages de Don Quixote y sitios de sus aventuras [etc.]». Par sa beauté typographique, la correction de son texte et la qualité de ses gravures, cette édition madrilène de la fin du XVIIIe siècle est l'une des plus appréciées par les bibliophiles amateurs du chef-d?oeuvre de Cervantès. BEL EXEMPLAIRE en reliure strictement d?époque. (Palau, "Manual del librero hispano-americano", n°52030, «Esta edición, por su belleza tipográfica, por la buena corrección del texto y por su acertado tamaño, es una de las más apreciadas, realizando en todo el ideal del bibliófilo.» ? Cohen, "Guide de l?amateur de livres à gravures", 219 ? Renouard, "Catalogue de la bibliothèque d?un amateur", T. III, p. 200, qui n?annonce que 27 gravures). NICE COPY. PICTURES AND MORE DETAILS ON REQUEST.
