        Memoirs of the Author of a Vindication of the Rights of Woman.

      London: Printed for J. Johnson, 1798.. Second edition, "corrected". 8vo. (iii-iv), 206 pp., bound without the half title and, as often, the portrait of Mary Wollstonecraft. 19th century dark green half morocco over marbled boards, spine gilt, maroon gilt lettered label, endpapers and all edges marbled. Some light rubbing, else very good. William Godwin commenced work on the biography of his wife, Mary Wollstonecraft, within months of her death in September, 1797. The first edition appeared in 1798, considered by many at the time to be too candid and damaging to his wife's reputation, he revised the text and this second edition was published within the same year. A Dublin edition was also published around this time, with a Philadelphia edition the following year. The work was not published again until the 20th century and none of these early editions are common.

        L'Isola O-Taiti Scoperta dal Cap. Cook con le Marchesi di Mendoza

      Carta tratta dal "Nuovo Atlante Geografico Universale delineato sulle ultime osservazioni", edito a Roma dal 1792 fino al 1801, opera che la Calcografia Camerale commissionò al Cassini al fine di sostituire l?ormai obsoleto "Mercurio Geografico". Giovanni Maria Cassini, Chierico Regolare Somasco fu geografo e cartografo, ma anche intagliatore di architetture e prospettive - uno dei migliori discepoli di Giovanni Battista Piranesi - Cassini fu uno degli ultimi sferografi italiani del Settecento ed i suoi globi ebbero una notevole diffusione, come pure questo "Nuovo Atlante Geografico". Incisione in rame, finemente colorata nei contorni, in ottimo stato di conservazione. Published in the scarce atlas, the 'Nuovo atlante geografico universale', this is one of the most decorative maps depicting the island. Cook's mission on his First Voyage to the South Seas was to observe the passage of Venus across the Sun in 1769, at the request of the Royal Society. During the three months he stayed on the island he sailed round it in a small boat, a trip which resulted in this map. To the north can be seen 'Point Venus'. An inset show the Marquesas Islands.

        Histoire Naturelle des Minéraux.

      Dordrecht, A. Blussé & Fils, 1798. 4to (282 x 225 mm). 5 volumes (bound in 2). pp. (4), 253; (4), 262; (4), 277; (4), 204; (4), (324), Contemporary calf, spines with 2 gilt lettered labels. The complete section on minerals of Buffon's famous 'Histoire Naturelle'. The first work 'to present the previously isolated and apparently disconnected facts of natural history in a generally intelligible form' (Encyclop. Brit.). The present copy is from the Buffon edition published in Dordrecht, the so-called 'l'Allemand' edition. It is the only 4to edition to rival the original French Imprimerie Royale edition (1749-1804) in 44 volumes. It does not contain the later published volumes by Lacépède on fishes and whales, as these were published after the date of above edition, it however contains numerous additions by l'Allemand which were included in the later French Buffon editions. "Buffon's work is of exceptional importance because of its diversity, richness, originality, and influence. Buffon was among the first to create an autonomous science, free of any theological influence. He emphasized the importance of natural history and the great length of geological time" (DSB).

        La Scienza della Legislazione.

      in Genova, Presso Jvone Gravier, 1798. 1798 8 voll. in 4 tomi in-8° piccolo (170x115mm), pp. 304; 279; 306; 311; 316; 331; 332; 364; legatura coeva m. pelle con titolo e decori in oro ai dorsi. Piatti in marmorizzatura caillouté azzurra, tagli spruzzati azzurri. Ritratto dell'autore inciso su rame dal Feliciani entro ovale all'antiporta del primo vol. Aloni di poco conto ad alcuni vol. e qualche normale brunitura. Ottimo stato. Rara edizione rivoluzionaria genovese del capolavoro filangeriano, nonché uno dei capisaldi del pensiero giuridico, economico e politico dell'Illuminismo italiano ed europeo. L'opera, pubblicata in origine a partire dal 1780 in sette volumi (Napoli, Raimondiana), ebbe larga eco europea, conoscendo traduzioni in inglese, francese, tedesco e spagnolo. Fondata sull'istanza di una rigorosa codificazione delle leggi e di una riforma progressiva dalla procedura penale, l'opera di Filangieri, influenzata da Vico e da Giannone come da Montesquieu, fornì anche una nuova formulazione del concetto di delitto: "Non tutte le azioni contrarie alle leggi sono delitti, non tutti coloro che le commettono sono delinquenti. L'azione disgiunta dalla volontà non è imputabile; la volontà disgiunta dall'azione non è punibile. Il delitto consiste dunque nella violazione della legge accompagnata dalla volontà di violarla". Il trattato, che costituì anche uno dei modelli ispiratori di Benjamin Franklin e di alcuni degli altri padri della Costituzione americana, venne posto all'Indice nel 1784 per le sue idee riformatrici ed i suoi duri attacchi ai privilegi ecclesiastici. "F. was one of the most important writers on economics in th latter years of the last century.. He followed no leader, standing between the physiocratic and mercantilist theory... his works are thus the prelude to a historical system of social legislation" (Palgrave). Einaudi, I, p. 307, n. 1889. Cfr. Pecchio, pp. 219 e sgg. Ricca Salerno, pp. 320 e sgg. Gobbi, La concorrenza estera, p. 203 e sgg. Palgrave, II, p. 59.

        Der Schweizerische Republikaner . 2 Quartal. Nr.: 53, 30.Junius 1798 - Nr. 104, 20. August 1798.

      8°, 209- 416 S., Broschur der Zeit m. handschriftlichem Titelschild, Fehlstelle am Deckelrücken, etwas stockfleckig - trotzdem gutes Exemplar. Der Republikaner war eine Schweizer Tageszeitung, die mehrmals wöchentlich erschien. Der Republikaner war das wichtigste und zuverlässigste Informationsorgan in der Zeit der Helvetik, insbesondere wegen der gewissenhaften Berichterstattung über die politischen Vorgänge. Die Zeitung wurde 1798 von Paul Usteri (1768-1831), Mediziner u. Politiker, und Hans Conrad Escher von der Linth (1767-1831), Geologe, Wasserbauingenieur u. Politiker, gegründet und ist erstmals unter dem Titel «Der schweizerische Republikaner» am 20. Februar 1798 erschienen. Wohl vertraten die Herausgeber eine positive Einstellung zum neuen Einheitsstaat der Helvetischen Republik, doch kritisierten sie auch die Regierung, was dazu führte, dass die Zeitung unterdrückt wurde und mehrmals ihren Namen wechseln musste. Auch wechselten die Verlage häufig, zu ihnen gehörte Orell, Füssli & Co. in Zürich. Die Zeitung erreichte um 1800 eine Auflage von etwa 200 Stück. Die erste Zeitung erschien wöchentlich, danach mehrmals wöchentlich. Escher verliess den Republikaner bereits Anfangs 1801. Nach Ende der Helvetischen Republik stellte der Republikaner im August 1803 sein Erscheinen ein.

        Das Helvetisches Volksblatt Nr. 1(8. September 1798)-19(28. Februar 1799) - alles was erschienen.

      8°, 234 S., Broschur der Zeit m. handschriftlichem Titelschild, Stockfleckig u. einzelne S. etwas angeschmutzt - trotzdem gutes Exemplar. Sehr selten. - Als halbamtl. Organ der helvet. Regierung erschien das H. in insgesamt 19 undatierten Nummern - erstmals am 8.9.1798 - während rund fünf Monaten. Das Blatt mit einer Auflage von maximal 5'200 Exemplaren wurde in der National-Buchdruckerei Gruner & Gessner in Luzern gedruckt. Das vom helvet. Kulturminister Philipp Albert Stapfer initiierte Zeitungsprojekt bezweckte die Popularisierung der unitar. Politik im Sinne von "Volksaufklärung" und "Nationalerziehung". Pfarrer und Lehrer wurden aufgefordert, die Zeitung öffentlich vorzulesen. In den ersten sechs Wochen amtierte Johann Heinrich Pestalozzi als Redaktor. Infolge der unkrit. Propaganda und des belehrenden Tons erreichte das Volksblatt bei der breiten Bevölkerung kaum die gewünschte Akzeptanz. Am 28.2.1799 wurde sein Einstellen mit der Begründung beschlossen, dass hier einige Gelehrte in einem zu hohen Ton mit dem Volk sprächen. (Christoph Guggenbühl).

        View in the Fort of Tritchinopoly

      London: Thomas Daniell, 1798. Colour printed aquatint with hand-finishing by Thomas Daniell and William Daniell, after Thomas Daniell, on wove paper watermarked J. Whatman 1794. 21 1/8 x 27 3/8 inches. A wonderful view of bathers in the shadow of the rock fort Turichirapalli, from the Daniells' Oriental Scenery, "the finest illustrated work on India" (Tooley). The Daniells' Oriental Scenery is "the finest illustrated work on India" (Tooley). Thomas Daniell and his nephew William spent nine years in India making studies, sketches and drawings of the scenery, architecture and antiquities of that country and then devoted a further thirteen years to publishing their remarkably accurate aquatints. In Britain, the impact was explosive. A cult of Indian architecture, landscaping and interior decoration arose, with the Royal Pavilion at Brighton as its centerpiece. The Daniells gave the people of Britain their first accurate look at the exotic sub-continent. Their great achievement here lies in satisfying the European craving for the picturesque while remaining responsible and accurate to their subjects. The work was issued in seven stages: three sets of twenty-four plates titled Oriental Scenery with title dates of 1795, 1797, and 1801; twelve plates titles Antiquities of India with title date 1799; twenty-four plates titled Hindoo Excavations with title date 1803; twenty-four plates titled Views in Hindoostan with title date 1807; and twelve further plates of Antiquities of India published without a title page in 1808. All plates were engraved by the Daniells and all are taken from their drawings save the twenty-four plates of Hindoo Excavations, which are after drawings by James Wales. The rock fort Tiruchirapalli, shown here, commanded an important position on the banks of the upper delta of the Kaveri River in southern India. Cf. Abbey Travel II:420

        Drawing Cover

      London: Published by Haines & Son, No. 19 Rolls Buildings, Fetter Lane, Feb. 1, 1798. Mezzotint. Printed on wove paper. In excellent condition with the exception of some glue residue on the verso of the sheet. Four vertical creases in sheet. A small abrasion in image. Image size: 9 ¼ x 13 7/8 inches. 9 7/8 x 13 7/8 inches. 10 3/8 x 14 3/8 inches. A bold hunting scene of a rider drawing cover. This early hunting scene follows the tradition of James Seymour by presenting a small format sporting picture in a bold decisive style. The artist and engraver are not recorded on the plate, which was typical of works published at the period by Haines & Son. Haines & Son were prolific publishers and printsellers who catered to the decorative print market, they often republished earlier plates, which they acquired from other publishers, such as Carington Bowles and Robert Sayer. This image, which is listed as plate 2, is most likely the second plate in a set of six prints.

        La langue des calculs, ouvrage posthume et ?mentaire. . . . (With) Laromigui?, Pierre (1756-1837). Paradoxes de Condillac

      Paris: Charles Houel, 1798. First edition. Condillac, ?ienne Bonnot (1714-80). (1) La langue des calculs, ouvrage posthume et ?mentaire. . . . 8vo. [4], 484, [2, errata]pp. Paris: Charles Houel, An VI [1798]. 198 x 125 mm. (2) Laromigui?, Pierre (1756-1837). Paradoxes de Condillac. [2], 82pp. Paris: l'Imprimerie de Guilleminet, 1805. Together 2 items, bound together in 20th century quarter morocco gilt, marbled boards. Occasional foxing, otherwise fine. Engraved portrait of Condillac tipped to verso of front free endpaper. (1) First Edition of a pioneering work on the philosophy of mathematics. A 2-volume 12mo edition was issued later the same year. "It was through his last works-La logique and, especially, La langue des calculs-that Condillac exercised the most decisive influence on the philosophical taste of the generation of scientists immediately following his own. Therein, like his predecessors in the rationalist tradition, he looked to mathematics as the exemplar of knowledge. He parted company with them, however, in developing the preference he had expressed in his early work for the analytic over the synthetic mode of reasoning. Geometry had lent itself to the abuses of the framers of systems, and it was algebra that would exhibit how the operations of any proper science are only those of a 'well-made language.' Algebraic terms consist of a set of exact symbols. By convention they always mean the same thing. They are combined and manipulated according to rules of a perfectly exact syntax. Algebra, indeed, is at once a language and a method of analysis. By contrast, ordinary language is an inaccurate and clumsy instrument all rusted and corrupted by centuries of sophistry and superstition. To compare it with algebra would reveal the difference between science and the imperfections of life in society. "(Dictionary of Scientific Biography). This work appeared as the final volume of the Oeuvres philosophiques, and on its own as above. The separate issue does not have the volume number on the half title, and the errata page relates only to this work, whereas in the collected issue it is part of the errata for all the volumes.(2) First Edition. A critique of the Lange des calculs by the French philosopher Pierre Laromiguière, a pupil of Condillac and one of the great French thinkers of the nineteenth century.

      Printed by W. Smith, Bedford. 1798.. First Edition, xii,351,[9]pp., presentation inscription from the author, 6 cont. hand-coloured engraved plates, cont. half, 2 contrasting gilt lettered morocco labels, paper shelf label to spine, a nice copy.This is the third English local flora, after Ray (Cambridge) and Sibthorp (Oxford), and the first in English. Although the BM (NH) copy has coloured plates, and Henry calls for them, this book is usually found with uncoloured plates, coloured copies an extreemly rare in commerce. "A work described by one authority as 'almost a model as a county flora'... Abbot's carefully prepared Flora bedfordiensis is written entirely in English, except for the first two words of the title and the Linnaean botanical names of the plants. It lists 1325 flowering plants and cryptogams. A brief description of each species is followed by the general place of growth, and in the case of some rare plants, the precise locality". (Henry).

Den kom dock endast att omfatta skalbaggarna. Det grundliga arbetet stärkte emellertid P:s internationella rykte, och han placerades i jämnbredd med de sv entomologerna C De Geer, L Gyllenhaal och C J Schönherr, även dessa ekonomiskt oberoende amatörforskare."

        Von der Weltseele eine Hypothese der höheren Physik zur Erklärung des allgemeinen Organismus.

      Hamburg, Friedrich Perthes, 1798. 8vo. Cont. marbled cardboardbdg. w. title-label to spine, gilding almost worn off. Some traces of wear to extremities. Internally nice and clean w. only minor and faint waterstaining to margin of some leaves. XIV, 327, (1, -errata) pp.. First edition of Schelling's influential "On the Soul of the World", which was the work that made Schelling famous in the university city of Jena. The work was widely noticed and highly regarded.In his early works (1795-1800), Schelling sets out to give a new account of nature. At the basis of his philosophy of nature is the status that Kant had given nature, but Schelling tries to avoid some of the consequences that come with it. He is also largely inspired by Fichte's transcendental philosophy, and in the last five years of the 19th century, Schelling is thus occupied with the relationship of the subject to the object world, -a theme that comes to found the basis for his so famous philosophy of nature. At first Fichte and Schelling stood on good terms, but as their different conceptions of nature became evident, the divergences between them became too great. As Fichte regarded nature as Not-Self, this could not be a valid subject of philosophy, and he refused to understand Schelling's philosophy of nature as complementary to his own transcendental philosophy. Schelling's philosophy of nature presents us with a modern hermeneutic view of nature, allowing nature to be of significance beyond what can be scientifically established about it. Schelling was a tutor of two boys from an aristocratic family. With them he went to Leipzic and had a chance to attend lectures at the university there. He here occupied himself with physical studies, also chemistry and biology. After having taught these two aristocrats for a couple of years, he was called to Jena as an extraordinary professor of philosophy at the mere age of 23. He stayed in Jena for five years (1798-1803), where he found himself at the centre of the German Romanticism. Goethe, for instance, highly regarded his philosophy of nature, which he got acquainted with through his "Von der Weltseele", which presents us with the fruits of his studies of physical sciences.Along with J.G. Fichte and Hegel, Schelling ranks as the most influential thinker of German Idealism. He stands in the centre of this most important and influential of philosophical traditions, and with his philosophy of nature, his anti-Cartesian view of subjectivity and his later critique of Hegelian Idealism, Schelling continues to be of the utmost importance to the development of continental philosophy to this day

        Lyrical Ballads

      T. N. Longman And O. Rees London: T. N. Longman And O. Rees. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Very Good. FIRST COMPLETE EDITION (comprising the second edition of the first volume, and the first edition, first issue of the second volume). The preferred edition, for the second edition of the first volume contains the first printing of Wordsworth's famous Preface, "the revolutionary manifesto of the romantic poets of the next generation" and perhaps the most influential work of literary theory in the English language (Printing and the Mind of Man 256). "To the first edition of Lyrical Ballads, published jointly with Coleridge in 1798, Wordsworth prefixed an 'Advertisement' which asserted that the major number of the poems were 'to be considered as experiments' to determine 'how far the language of conversation in the middle and lower classes of society is adapted to the purposes of poetic pleasure.' In the second, two-volume edition of 1800, Wordsworth... expanded the Advertisement into a Preface which justified the new poetry not as experiments, but as exemplifying the principles of all good poetry... The Preface deserves its reputation as a revolutionary manifesto about the nature of poetry... [It serves] not only as a turning point in English criticism but also as a central document in modern culture" (Norton Anthology of English Literature).In addition to the first appearance of the Preface, the second edition contains all the poems in the first edition plus one additional poem in the first volume, and the first printing of the forty-one new poems in the second volume. The poems in Lyrical Ballads proved to be extraordinarily influential, for "no other book of poems in English so plainly announces a new literary departure" (Norton). Lyrical Ballads includes some of the most famous poems in the English language: in the the first volume appears Coleridge's "The Rime of the Ancient Mariner", "The Foster-Mother's Tale", "The Nightingale", "The Dungeon", and Wordsworth's "Lines written a few miles above Tintern Abbey", "The Thorn", "The Idiot Boy", "Simon Lee, the Old Huntsman", and "Lines written in early spring"; the second volume added many of Wordsworth's most characteristic works such as the "Lucy Poems", "The Old Cumberland Beggar", "Michael, a Pastoral", and others.London: T. N. Longman and O. Rees, 1800. Small octavo, contemporary full calf with original red and green morocco labels. Two volumes. Housed in custom half-leather box. Evidence of bookplates removed on pastedowns. Light spotting to five leaves in volume two, otherwise text exceptionally clean; a few skillful repairs to bindings, minor surface imperfection (noticeable only up-close, at an angle) to board of volume II.
