        Allgemeine Naturgeschichte und Theorie des Himmels, oder Versuch von der Verfassung und dem mechanischen Ursprunge des ganzen Weltgebäudes nach Newtonischen Grundsätzen abgehandelt

      Frankfurt/Leipzig, 1797 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. 2nd Edition. 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall. Uncut in cont. marbled boards w. wear. Back almost gone. Brownspotted. Scarce second edition of Kant&#39;s third work, first printed in 1755. <br><br> An "Auszug", i.e only part of the Naturgeschichte, was printed in 1791, but no other editions or part of the work appeared between 1755 and 1797, though a third and fourth edition appeared in 1798 and 1808. All editions of this work are of great rarity. In his youth Kant was a great admirerer of Newton, and in this work he bases his theories on him, but at the same time goes far beyond him. Kant describes how the solar system originated, and does this on the basis of his own mechanical principles. "In his "Theory of the heavens", Kant, by a series of bold strokes, anticipated astronomical facts that were later confirmed by very powerful observational techniques and with the help of relativistic cosmological theory. He conjectured that our solar system is a part of a vast system of stars making up a single galaxy, that the so-called nebolous-stars are galactic systems external to but similar to our own galaxy (a fact that was not confirmed until the twentieth century), and that there are many such galaxies making up the universe as a whole."

        Collection of early American engravings, including "The Death of Captain Cook", with other Cook related engravings, in a bound collection

      Hardcover. A bound volume of engraved plates and maps of different sizes, assembled from a late 18th century French two volume encyclopedia, as well as from early American printed sources, including the Massachusetts Magazine and Cook&#39;s Three Voyages to the Pacific Ocean (Boston 1797). The owner, Jacob Ulman, whose bookplate adorns the inside front board, had an interest in astronomy, maps of the world, cannon, Capt. James Cook and Boston, where he is recorded as having married in 1825, worked as a housewright, and is buried in Cambridge, Massachusetts in Mount Auburn Cemetery. & & Samuel Hill (ca. 1765 - 1809) was a Boston engraver of the late 18th century whose engravings were published in the Massachusetts Magazine; Defoe&#39;s New Robinson Crusoe (1790); the American Universal Geography (1796); and Cook&#39;s Three Voyages to the Pacific Ocean (1797). Other engravings by Hill in this compilation include: An East View of the New Meeting House in Hollis St., Boston; Baltimore Oriole (bird); Cobb&#39;s Field Piece (cannon); Bird Catching at Orkney. Other American engravers mentioned in Stauffer&#39;s "American Engravers Upon Copper and Steel&#39; include T. Wightman, (his engraving of a tool & gears is not listed in Stauffer) and A. M. Peasley "Patent Corn Sheller"; Hooker, "Annual Motion of the Earth around the Sun, publ. in Newburyport Mass/ publ. by Edmund M. Blunt 1807, with orig. hand color& & The "Death of Captain James Cook " was one of the iconic images of the 18th century. Cook, already a successful navigator, was immortalized after his death at the hands of Hawaiian natives at Kealakekua Bay. Most likely from the Boston 1797 edition of Cook&#39;s Three Voyages, it measures 5 1/4 x 3 1/2", with "S. Hill sc." at the lower right. Two other engravings from the same work included are "Omai, a Native of Otaheite, who resided in England under the Patronage of Government upwards of Two Years". Omai (Mai, ca.1751 - 1780) was a Pacific Islander who had served as translator for Captain Cook on his 2nd & 3rd voyages, and was the physical embodiment of the "noble savage" in London society for a time. (3 x 5 1/2") & "A War Canoe of New Zealand " (with "A Branch of the Bread fruit" suspended in the sky above the canoe ( 4 7/8 x 3 1/4", trimmed to the right, no engraver listed). .& & The early engravings, from a French work, are astronomical in subject, and later include a series of maps; a double hemisphere folding world map, showing Australia as "N.le & Hollande", by Tardieu aine"; Europe, Asia, France, Africa and "Amerique Septentrionale" of North America. These measure approx. 8 1/2 x 7 1/4". The volume includes a total of 35 plates with many folding maps, astronomical plates, illustrations of mechanical devices, ornithological plates, and others. Small 8vo, contemporary dark sheep covers, gilt rules at spine, edges a little rubbed. A few plates toned, some with small closed tears repaired, otherwise very good.

        Le Maki a front blanc. Geoffroy. Lemur Albifrons

      Paris.. 1797-1800.. Color intaglio print with added handcolor, image approximately 14 1/2 x 9 inches on sheet size 20 1/2 x 12 1/2 inches. Light scattered foxing, faint toning to edges; otherwise very good condition. An exquisitely detailed image of a white-headed lemur. Plate 3 from Histoire Naturelle des Singes et des Makis by Jean Baptiste Audebert, published between 1797-1800. This was Audebert&#39;s first individually issued publication, and he lavished attention on the plates which were printed with a color printing method he apparently devised, incorporating stipple engraving. 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." .

Christian Friedrich Damberger, whose real name was possibly Zacharias Taurinius, is the pseudonymous author of, or collaborator on, three cleverly contrived hoax narratives of travel, the first published under the name of Joseph Schrodter, the second under the name of Taurinius, and the third under the name of Damberger -Schrodter (Shoe-Maker), Taurinius (Printer), Damberger (Cabinet-Maker) - One Author, Three Travel Books by Raymond John HowgegoCondition: In a full calf binding, recently rebacked.
