        Die sieben Weiber des Blaubart. Eine wahre Familiengeschichte herausgegeben von Gottlieb Färber (Pseud.). 268 S., 2 Bl. Orig.-Broschur.

      Istanbul, Heraklius Murusi, 1212 (d. i. Berlin, C. A. Nicolai, 1797). - Seltene erste Ausgabe der Erzählung, die den Stil des 'Peter Lebrecht' wieder aufgreift. "Hier erinnert das souveräne Spiel des Dichters mit dem Leser gelegentlich an die Erzähltechnik der Rokoko-'Conte'" (Paulin, Metzler, S. 38). Die Erzählung fällt wegen ihrer auf den ersten Blick provozierenden Sinnlosigkeit aus dem Rahmen. Der Literaturkritiker Rudolf Haym sah sich 1870 in ein Kasperletheater versetzt und schloss das Kunstmärchen in seinem Buch 'Die romantische Schule' aus dem Literaturkanon aus. Auch mit den phantastischen und magischen Elementen des Romans konnte er wenig anfangen. Der Roman wurde von Kritik und Publikum ignoriert und verschwand aus Tiecks Werkausgaben. Zu unrecht! Die Darstellungsparodie entpuppt sich als ein Sammelsurium von genialen Anspielungen auf Goethe, Klopstock und Perrault. Tieck nimmt die Liebeskonzepte seiner Zeit zum Anlass und erzählt so die erste unfreiwillige Mordserie eines Ritters. Die in den 'Sieben Weibern des Blaubart' und im 'Gestiefelten Kater' enthaltenen Provokationen gegen den Verleger führten zur Trennung von Nicolai, der Tieck aus seiner Verpflichtung als Herausgeber der 'Straußfedern' entließ. – Sehr breitrandig. Unaufgeschnitten. – Goed. VI 36, 40; Hayn/G. VIII 340; Weller, Druckorte, S. 168. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Inlaid binding by John Mackinlay (1737 - 1821), with his book tag No. 8 Bow Street, Covent Garden on the inside front cover of both volumes. According to Ellic Howe in A List of London Bookbinders 1648 - 1815, Mackinlay was referred to as "the living father of the bibliopegistic art" by Dibdin (Bibliographical Decameron, ii. 519). This shop at 8 Bow Street burned down with Covent Garden in 1808. At the height of Mackinlay's success, he employed 8 - 9 men, among them 3 finishers. He was by all accounts a colorful personality and known variously as "Black Jock"and "a dirty old brute." Ellic Howe pointed out many anecdotes about John Mackinlay were "not fit for polite society." Of his bindings listed as being in the British Museum by Ellic Howe in 1850 were: G. 11795-811, G. 11958-65, G. 11969-77. In Howe's mind these were the set of Dugdale's Monasticon praised by Dibdin. Front and back covers of both of these volumes are ruled in gold within which is an intertwined beaded and leaved border decoration. Inside a second, inner panel, also ruled out in gold, is a black morocco inlay on the mottled brown calf, around which is a gold stamped oval border. In the center of the oval is a gowned and plumed female deity in gold, with down-cast eyes, holding a staff in her right hand and gesturing with her up-raised left arm and hand.

        Estado de los contratos del R[eal] D[e]r[ech]o de Alcavala para su Magestad, en los pueblos y campaña de la jurisdiccion de la Capital de Buenos Ayres. [and:] Pulperos ajustados en los pueblos de dicha campaña convenidos a contribuir a Su Magestad el Real D[e]r[ech]o de Alcavala para el presente año de 1797.

      [Buenos Aires, 1797]. - Manuscript on paper written in 3 different coloured inks. Small folio. 1 blank leaf + [22]p + 2 blank leaves + [12]p. With 2 illuminated calligraphic title-pages, first title with arms of Buenos Aires in tailend section, a variety of exquisite floral and animal ornamentation on titles and in 21 headings, including 6 charming landscape vignettes, decorative initials. Text ruled in 9 columns, one of which represents cattle-brand marks; line borders in red throughout. Calf folder; slipcase. A colonial manuscript of extraordinary rarity and quality executed in the best tradition of Spanish calligraphy, and in an excellent state of preservation. Comprising detailed government reports on fiscal contributions for the year 1797 from estancias (farms) and pulperias (general store owners) in the districts and villages in the vicinity of Buenos Aires, capital of the Viceroyalty of Rio de la Plata, in the closing years of the 18th century. The ‘alcavala’ (or 'alcabala') of the title was a Spanish sales tax applicable to all property contracts. The five regions ('partidos') specified in the first report are: Rio de los Arrecifes, San Antonio de Areco, Rio de Luján, Rio de Las Conchas and La Magdalena. Within each region the approximate location of a farm is given in relation to specific geographical features – a watercourse ('arroyo'), river bank ('costa'), stretch of river ('vanda'), village ('pueblo') or cattle pasture trail ('cañada'). In the register the farm is numbered, and the table provides the name of the owner, the amount of their livestock (cattle, sheep, mules) the individual brand mark, the farm’s location and its distance in relation to nearby estates. The final column lists the tax paid in pesos. Among owners some 25 women are named. Three notes ('notas') in the addenda of the first report, list: firstly, eight individuals who could not be found on their farms as they were in Buenos Aires (their head of cattle is noticeably high); secondly, a further eight assessed (owning even larger numbers of cattle, though brand marks are not given), whose owners were not to be found (all are of noble origin and were possibly in Spain). The third group of two named individuals refused to pay the tax, including Don Joaquin Molina, who also denies owning 3000 head of cattle. Four farmers are additionally finally listed with approximate location of their farms, they too refused the tax, though admitted to owning livestock. This first section is signed by the assessor, Vicente Benito Cretel. He points out, in conclusion, that the sum total of cattle here listed comprises bulls, steers, cows, oxen and other pasture animals, but it is only the second category (steers, nobillos) sold for the provision of supplies (hides, meat etc) which are liable for the tax. The second report lists some 115 'pulperos' liable to pay the tax. These too are divided under five areas ('partidos'): Arrecifes, Rio de Arèco, Rio de Luxàn, Rio de las Conchas, La Magdalena. Each store with its named owner is further numerically listed and located according to their proximity to a named town. The latter pages of this second report list in sections the provisions stores attached to six forts ('fortines') of the border guards ('guardias'). These are Guardia de Chascosmùs, Guardia de los Ranchos, Guardia d[e] Monte, (in between which, Fortin de los Lobos), Guardia de Luxan, Guardia de Salto, Guardia de Roxas. The headings of each of these are of particular iconographic interest for the delicately painted landscape vignettes which are among the earliest known graphic representations of the local topography and its flora and fauna. Each of the two reports is signed by the government official Don Vicente Benito Cretel and dated respectively 17th March and 30th April 1797. Cretel is not included in any of the Argentine biographical dictionaries, though he features in a list of 23 patriotic citizens who were granted the title ‘ciudadanos americanos de la Provincias Unidad’.

Inlaid binding by John Mackinlay (1737 – 1821), with his book tag No. 8 Bow Street, Covent Garden on the inside front cover of both volumes. According to Ellic Howe in A List of London Bookbinders 1648 – 1815, Mackinlay was referred to as "the living father of the bibliopegistic art" by Dibdin (Bibliographical Decameron, ii. 519). This shop at 8 Bow Street burned down with Covent Garden in 1808. At the height of Mackinlay's success, he employed 8 – 9 men, among them 3 finishers. He was by all accounts a colorful personality and known variously as "Black Jock"and "a dirty old brute." Ellic Howe pointed out many anecdotes about John Mackinlay were "not fit for polite society." Of his bindings listed as being in the British Museum by Ellic Howe in 1850 were: G. 11795-811, G. 11958-65, G. 11969-77. In Howe's mind these were the set of Dugdale's Monasticon praised by Dibdin. Front and back covers of both of these volumes are ruled in gold within which is an intertwined beaded and leaved border decoration. Inside a second, inner panel, also ruled out in gold, is a black morocco inlay on the mottled brown calf, around which is a gold stamped oval border. In the center of the oval is a gowned and plumed female deity in gold, with down-cast eyes, holding a staff in her right hand and gesturing with her up-raised left arm and hand. Sold with this copy is a letter from Wilwarth Sheldon Lewis, W.S. Lewis, who signed himself as "Lefty." The letter is on The Lewis Walpole Library stationery and addressed to a fellow Eli, Lucius F.

        Original watercolour of a British fleet of ships among icebergs.

      circa 1793-, 1797. Watercolour, oval shape, 132 x 195 mm., tipped on to card, in gilt frame. A finely executed watercolour of a fleet amidst icebergs. Although unsigned, this watercolour was originally found in a nineteenth century album with another of very similar style signed and dated by Tobin, an important amateur artist in the early history of Australia. Tobin was born in 1768 and joined the Navy as a lively lad in 1780. He showed natural aptitude and rose to the rank of lieutenant after an extended voyage for the East India Company between 1788-1790. He served with Flinders under Bligh on the Providence, the second voyage to Tahiti to gather breadfruit following the disastrous Bounty mutiny.Tobin was a highly skilled watercolourist who kept a detailed record of the Providence voyage including paintings of Tasmanian scenes. On his return to England he served under Cochrane on the Thetis between 1793-1797 and continued to produce marine scenes in a more mature and conservative style than the watercolours undertaken in the Pacific. The Mitchell Library holds an important album of watercolours dating from his service on the Thetis. This study of ships amidst icebergs is strongly reminiscent of the marine studies in this album, characterised by the highly detailed treatment of rigging and naval architecture, accomplished treatment of sea, clouds and sky and the use of subdued and harmonious colouring.This scene more than likely depicts British ships off Newfoundland in 1796. A much larger combined fleet of French and Spanish ships had been repelled by a smaller number of British ships in their attempt to disrupt the fishing industry on Newfoundland in 1796. The flag signal from the main mast of the ship is likely to state "In case of parting company either by accident or otherwise, without have orders where to go Repair to the rendezvous No 2". George Tobin was one of the most important and accomplished amateur artists in the early history of Australia and the opening of the Pacific: 'His colouring was very good - bold and strong and sure. He had an accurate eye for perspective, a sensitive feeling for distance and for the movement of wind and water, and his general composition was almost always excellent' (Rex and Thea Rienits, Early Artists of Australia). Provenance: From a nineteenth century album of watercolours. Slight crease on far right, very good condition overall.

        History of British Birds.

      1797 1797 - 2 vols. [1: History and Description of Land Birds. 2: Containing the History and Description of Water Birds]. Newcastle, Printed by Sol. Hodgson/ Edward Walker for Beilby & Bewick 1797-1804. With 448 textual wood-engravings. XXX + 336; XX + 400 pp. Clean and well-preserved copy bound in nice contemporary full marbled calf, early rebacked with coloured labels and richly gilt spines. * 2nd issue. Large Imperial printed in 207 copies.Thomas Bewick [1753-1828] is best known for his 'History of British Birds', which is admired today mainly for its wood engravings, especially the small, sharply observed, and often humorous vignettes known as tail-pieces. He is credited with popularizing, a technical innovation in the printing of illustrations using wood. He adopted metal-engraving tools to cut hard boxwood across the grain, producing printing blocks that could be integrated with metal type, but were much more durable than traditional woodcuts. The result was high quality illustration at a low price. [Wikipedia]. The text of the first volume dealing with 'Land Birds' is by Beilby and the second volume 'Water Birds' is by Bewick. All the wood engravings are by Bewick.Zimmer p. 57; Nissen IVB, 95. Roscoe 15A. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        The Theory of Moral Sentiments

      London: for A. Strahan; and T. Cadell jun. and W. Davies (Successors to Mr. Cadell) and W. Creech, and J. Bell & Co. at Edinburgh,, 1797. or, An Essay Towards an Analysis of the Principles by which Men Naturally Judge Concerning the Conduct and Character, first of their Neighbours, and afterwards of themselves. To Which is Added, A Dissertation on the Origin of Languages. The Eighth Edition. In two Volumes. 2 volumes, octavo (205× 123 mm). Contemporary diced Russia, gilt roll border to boards, flat spines ruled, diced and lettered gilt, marbled endpapers and edges, silk ribbon marker. Spines lightly sunned, abrasion across the top of front board to volume II; 2 short marginal tears repaired to volume I, stain from silk ribbon marker to one opening; a very attractive set. Eighth edition, a good set of Adam Smith's first book, the work that established his reputation as a philosopher both in London and on the Continent. "One of Adam Smith's major claims to fame, in some ways his greatest, is his development of a unified concept of an economic system with mutually interdependent parts. His development of this came well before the Wealth of Nations; it is in the Theory of Moral Sentiments of 1759 and the Lectures of 1762-3" (D. P. O'Brien, The Classical Economists, 1975, p. 29). The sixth edition of the Theory, which appeared a few months before Smith's death, evinced a number of broad developments in his later thought, as well as his last views on many specific points. Smith at least in part made extensive revisions so that he might bequeath a refreshment of copyright to his publisher, in which he was successful. See the editors' introduction to the Glasgow edition (Oxford, 1976), pp. 15–20; Ross, Life, pp. 381–5, 391–5, and Richard Sher's account of the early editions of Adam Smith's books in Britain and Ireland in Tribe (ed.), A critical Bibliography of Adam Smith. This eighth edition was produced in 1000 copies.
