Herder, Johann Gottfried.
Riga, Johann Friedrich Hartknoch, 1793-1797. Erste Ausgabe dieser Sammlung, neben Schillers Briefen zur ästhetischen Erziehung die bedeutendste Sammlung der Ideale der deutschen Klassik. Die Idee zu den 'Briefen' kam Herder im Frühjahr 1792. An Gleim schrieb er: "Ich gehe jetzt in Gedanken mit Briefen, die Fortschritte der Humanität betreffend, um, in die ich das Beste, das ich in Herz und Seele trage, zu legen gedenke. Verleih der Himmel mir Gesundheit, Muße, Geschick und Freude! . Ihre Gefühle an der krankenden Menschheit, zumal Fürstenheit, haben mich tief durchdrungen, das Jahrhundert eilt mit beschleunigendem Fall zu Ende! An den sollen sich also auch meine humanistischen oder humanen Briefe schließen, so Gott hilft ". Die 'Briefe' enthalten auch erstaunlich aktuelle Passagen mit Herders politischem Glaubensbekenntnis. Die Bände enthalten daneben Beiträge von Claudius, Knebel, Stolberg, Voß u. a. In Band 9 ließ Herder das Gedicht vom Nationalruhm aus Zensurgründen entfernen, so dass vom Bogen M nur das erste Blatt blieb und die Seiten 179-197 ausgelassen sind. – Vereinzelt schwacher, nicht störender Textabklatsch. Wenige, unbedeutende Fleckchen. Bezugspapier von Band 9/10 berieben. Schönes, frisches Exemplar. Titel von Band 1 verso mit kl. Stempel der Fürstenbergischen Bibliothek Donaueschingen. Jeder Band mit handschriftlichem Besitzeintrag des "Oberforstmeisters von Laßberg zu Heiligenberg". Exlibris. – Goed. IV 1, 732, 88; Schulte-Str. 61. [Attributes: First Edition]

[Hamilton, Alexander]: [Callender, James T.]
Philadelphia, 1797. viii,288pp. Contemporary three-quarter calf and marbled boards, gilt morocco label. Some chipping, rubbing, and edge wear, label worn. Contemporary ownership signature on titlepage, marginal chipping to bottom of titlepage, mild foxing. Good plus. Untrimmed. In a half morocco box. One of the critical works in the saga of Alexander Hamilton, this scurulious text contains the famous scandalmonger Callender's revelation of Hamilton's affair with Mrs. Reynolds, and the subsequent correspondence between Hamilton and Mr. Reynolds concerning blackmail money. "Chapters 5 and 6, charging him with financial dishonesty, forced Hamilton to issue his 'Reynolds pamphlet'" - Howes. While Hamilton was able to clear himself of alleged theft charges, the breaking of the Reynolds story was the effective end of his political career. The present text was later reprinted in Callender's HISTORY OF THE UNITED STATES FOR 1796, to which Jefferson lent financial backing. Callender's unscrupulous behavior was halted in 1801, when, in a drunken stupor, he drowned in three feet of water in the James River. The volume is also important for the wealth of political and diplomatic news of the day. HOWES C69. EVANS 31905. SABIN 10062. REESE, FEDERAL HUNDRED 67 (ref).

MeLville Papers
"Suggestions Respecting the Means of Improving our Connexion with China on the Side of Napaul & Thibet" [Great Britain], 1797. Manuscript memorandum revealing a trade relations strategy for Great Britain to increase access in China, written by an unidentified British colonial administrator or politician who was abreast with the political climate and the leaders in China, Nepal and Tibet. Folio. 16 pages in manuscript, written recto and verso with wide half-page margins, on five double leafs laid watermarked paper made by Whig politician and leading papermaker Clement Taylor in 1796, measuring approximately 20 x 31 cm, and string-tied to upper left margin with a green ribbon. Docketed to verso. Very slight occasional age-toning, otherwise in very good condition, clean and bright, a stellar primary source document. Provenance: From the Melville Papers. Written shortly after the return of Lord Macartney's Embassy to China, most likely by an influential administrator of the East India Company which had a monopoly on East Indies trade including Canton in China, the present memorandum is a proposal for a mission with the same objective of securing increased trade with China - this time by means of a somewhat obliquitous political connection through Nepal and Tibet. The East India Company was both ambitious and persistent with its aim of expanding commerce with the Far East, sparing no expense in sending great missions such as Lord Macartney's, and also chancing more intimate, lesser known missions aimed at reconnaissance or relationship building.

(TARAYRE Jean-Joseph) BLARY (?)
Marcillac 1797, 17,7x24,5cm, un feuillet remplié. - Marcillac 1797, 17,7x24,5cm, un feuillet remplié. - Lettera manoscritta datata 23 Brumaire, anno 6 [13 novembre 1797], tre pagine su un foglio piegato, l'indirizzo del destinatario Jean-Joseph Tarayre e il sigillo del mittente [Blary?] Sul retro, lieve danno al testo dovuto al sigillo. Questa lettera è il risultato di una corrispondenza privata tra un repubblicano non identificato e il capitano Jean-Joseph Tarayre, non è un resoconto ufficiale e fattuale degli eventi, ma i sentimenti particolari di un partigiano impegnato nel causa rivoluzionaria e repubblicana, rendendo questa lettera una testimonianza rara e preziosa del suo tempo. Gli ultimi fuochi dell'ideale rivoluzionario bruciano in questa lettera: " Abbiamo giurato di morire liberi, continueremo il nostro giuramento, saprete che i repubblicani non giurano invano e non sperpereranno mai di vivere liberi o morire questo è il loro motto " . La lettera coglie sul posto una svolta sconosciuta e tuttavia essenziale nella storia della Rivoluzione, lontana dalla sua originale effervescenza: "vediamo però attraverso tutto ciò che la gente apre gli occhi che non vorrebbe pagare più decime o rendite vitalizie senza, tuttavia, voler ripetere l'entusiasmo che aveva nell'89 per sconfiggere i nemici e ridurli con un solo respiro all'impossibilità di nuocergli mai " Spesso mascherata dai grandi simboli rivoluzionari, la lettera rivela tutta la fragilità della Prima Repubblica. I ranghi repubblicani sono costituiti da opportunisti, i patrioti convinti che rifiutano i ruoli politici … [Click Below for Full Description]

(uncut and partly unopened). Original limp boards, title in ink on spine, minor soiling at foot of spine. Light toning, otherwise a very fine, crisp copy. First Edition, second issue. Lagrange was born in Turin of mixed Italian and French descent, and spent the first 30 years of his life in his native city. He began devoting himself exclusively to mathematics when he was 17; within a year he had published his first mathematical paper and begun a fruitful correspondence with Leonhard Euler, who at the time was working in Berlin as Director of Mathematics at the Berlin Academy. While in Turin Lagrange founded the Turin Academy of Sciences and published a number of papers in its journal; his mathematical work during this time helped to establish the calculus of variations. In 1766, upon Euler's return to St. Petersburg, Lagrange agreed to take over Euler's position at the Berlin Academy. He spent the next twenty years in Berlin where he made a number of fundamental contributions to algebra, number theory and celestial mechanics; during this time he also wrote his landmark Mécanique analytique (1788), which "transformed mechanics into a branch of mathematical analysis" (O'Connor and Robertson).

LEGENDRE, Adrien Marie.
Paris: Duprat, 1797-1798. First edition. A fine copy of the first book entirely dedicated to number theory. The work contains Legendre's discovery of the law of quadratic reciprocity, which Gauss referred to as the ‘golden theorem' and for which he published six proofs in his <i>Disquisitiones arithmeticae</i> (1801). ❧Norman 1325; Parkinson <i>Breakthroughs</i> 231. <br/><br/> “The theory of numbers in the eighteenth century remained a series of disconnected results. The most important works in the subject were Euler's <i>Anleitung zur Algebra</i> (1770) and Legendre's <i>Essai sur la th�orie des nombres</i> (1798).” (Kline). “Legendre was one of the most prominent mathematicians of Europe in the 19th Century… His texts were very influential. In 1798 he published his <i>Theory of Numbers</i>, the first book devoted exclusively to number theory. It underwent several editions, but was soon to be superseded by Gauss' <i>Disquisitiones arithmeticae</i><br/><br/> “Many of Legendre's results were found independently by Gauss, and serious priority disputes arose between them. Legendre's proofs, moreover, left much to be desired, even by mid-18th-century standards. For example, he discovered the law of quadratic reciprocity, unaware of Euler's prior discovery, and gave a proof based on what he viewed as a self-evident fact, namely the existence of infinitely many primes in any arithmetic progression <i>an + b (n = 1, 2, 3, …</i>, with <i>a</i> and <i>b</i> relatively prime).

MASCHERONI, Lorenzo.
Pavia: Heirs of Pietro Galeazzi, 1797. First edition of Mascheroni's most important book, in which he proves that any geometrical construction that can be performed using ruler and compasses can be carried out by means of compasses alone. The history of the problem goes back at least as far as Euclid, the restriction to ruler and compass occurring in Book I of the Elements. The problem of carrying out constructions under additional restrictions was considered by da Vinci, Dürer, Cardano and Tartaglia, among others. "In the preface Mascheroni recounts the genesis of his work. He was moved initially by a desire to make a contribution to elementary geometry. It occurred to him that ruler and compass could perhaps be separated, as water can into two gases; but he was assailed by doubts and fears often attendant upon research. He then chanced to reread an article on the way Graham and Bird [who supplied instruments to Maupertuis] had divided their great astronomical quadrant, and he realised that the division had been made by compass alone, although, to be sure, by trial and error. This encouraged him and he continued his work with two purposes in mind: to give a theoretical solution to the problem of constructions with compasses alone and to offer practical constructions that might be of help in making precision instruments. The second concern is shown in the brief solutions of many specific problems and in a chapter on approximate solutions. "The theoretical solution (see especially §191) depends on the solution of the following problems: (1) to bisect a given circular arc of … [Click Below for Full Description]

49 pp. Large 4to, modern cloth-backed marbled boards (title-page remargined at gutter & rather soiled), red morocco lettering piece on spine. Paris: 1797.The very rare print catalogue issued by Joubert (?-1836), engraver and successor to the famous Chéreau family dynasty of print publishers. The firm was founded by François Chéreau (1680-1729), pupil of Audran and Drevet. He was named engraver to the Cabinet du Roi in 1718, allowing him to sell prints executed for the cabinet at his shop. "He was among the most prolific portrait engravers of Louis XIV's reign and the most famous painters of the period were reproduced by him."-Benezit, Vol. 3, p. 891-92.In 1787 upon the retirement of Jacques François, grandson of François, Joubert purchased their storefront on rue des Mathurins Saint Jacques and its stock of tens of thousands of plates, prints, and book publishing records. In a note on the title-page of the present catalogue, Joubert announces a move to a new address on rue de Sorbonne.The catalogue lists hundreds of prints and for each notes the school, artist, title, engraver, and price. A large mixed selection is found at the beginning and then is divided up into seven categories (explained on pp. 1-4): Colored Subjects, Principles of Drawing, Pencil Drawing, Architecture, Flowers, Writings, and Collections. The catalogue features the engravings of Audran, Callot, Cochin, Huquier, Le Bas, S. Leclerc, Tardieu, etc.Very good copy in spite of soiling to title and blank verso of final leaf.

Contemporary green half morocco, marbled boards. A fine set of the first edition of this showcase of exotic species, which made a contribution of lasting importance to the literature of botany and horticulture by providing records and means of identification of a great diversity of beautiful and interesting plants, many of them new to science (Hunt catalogue). A large number of the plants depicted and described are from Australia and South Africa (among the latter 47 proteas and 26 ixias). The text was written by John Kennedy, Adrian Haworth and George Jackson. Each plate is accompanied by a leaf of letterpress text. The plates are all by Andrews.Aitken and others 'Capturing Flora. 300 years of Australian botanical art' page 88, comments on plate 82 'Banksia serrata' as follows: "The specimens collected at Botany Bay by Banks and Solander in 1770 played a surprisingly modest part in describing Australian flora taxonomically but there can be no doubt that their introduction into horticulture, such as Banksia serrata, named by the son of Carl Linnaeus in 1781, epitomised the excitement of New Holland 'exoticks'". On plate 295 'Capturing Flora. 300 years of Australian botanical art' comments as follows: "Passiflora aurantia, the Norfolk Island passion-flower, was introduced to England in 1792 and first raised by Lee and Kennedy - 'as an addition to the very few handsome climbing plants fit to decorate the t … [Click Below for Full Description]

Walpole Horace . Isabelle et Théodore .Histoire traduite de l’Anglais, d’Horace Walpole. A Paris au magazin des romans nouveaux, chez Lepetit , libraire. 1797 . Deux tomes en deux volumes (basane d’époque, têtes dorées). 151 et 171 pp. Bel ex-libris (Elsa Von Wenhe). Taches aux deux derniers feuillets du tome 1. Edition originale ( ?) de cette deuxième traduction du Château d’Otrante , ornée de deux frontispices . Il est censé exister deux éditions à cette date, un au format in-12, l’autre au format in-18 (Killen). Il nous paraît cependant possible qu’il n’y en ait qu’une et qu’une confusion ait été crée par des exemplaires coupés court (comme celui-ci ?). Mais nous n’avons pas de certitude. Quoi qu’il en soit, les deux comportent des frontispices (les mêmes) et le texte occupe autant de place sur les pages (9 cm entre les lignes extrêmes). Les dorures sont légèrement passes, épidermure en bas du dos du deuxième volume, deux coins un peu émoussés, mais assez bel exemplaire quand même. Les éditions du dix-huitième siècle du Château d’Otrante sont toutes rares, nettement en tout cas plus que les originales du Moine et des grands romans d’Anne Radcliffe. Celle-ci trouve certainement son origine dans la vogue du roman noir (les premiers romans d’Anne Radcliffe commençaient à être traduits, « Le souterrain », et « Le vieux baron anglais » avaient paru en france une dizaine d’années d’avant). Rappelons que l’originale française du Château d’Otrante date de 1767.

DARWIN, Erasmus.
Derby: Printed by J. Drewry for J. Johnson, 1797. Quarto (266 x 206 mm). Contemporary sprinkled calf, rebacked, red morocco label, gilt roll-tooled border to covers. Burnished and a little worn at tips, title page washed (letterpress consequently faded) and reinforced at edges, frontispiece and title page a little stained, a few pages a little creased and foxed. A very good copy. Engraved frontispiece with tissue-guard. First edition of Erasmus Darwin's treatise on the education of women, advocating a curriculum to include grammar, languages, arithmetic, history and science. The work originated as advice to his two illegitimate daughters, Susanna and Mary Parker, for whom he had bought a converted inn to run as a school for girls. Though still aiming to produce informed companions for men, the strong focus on scientific subjects ran counter to many other contemporary proposals for female education. A Dublin and a Philadelphia edition followed the subsequent year. ESTC T110944. [Attributes: First Edition]

Athough not all his conclusions were right, this work remains a milestone in geology" Poggendorff I, p.724 - "In 1784 Faujas journeyed through England to Scotland; a full account was published in 1797. He narrated entertaining details of his travels and described arts, industries, and customs, but his most important observations were geological. He realized the volcanic nature of the basalt of the inner Hebrides and paid special attention to the spectacular columnar occurrence on the isle of Staffa..." DSB IV.548 -Monglond IV, col. 176.
