        John Adams approves two acts of Congress concerning public health and the welfare of naval veterans

      Philadelphia, Pennsylvania: , 1799 Document, signed in type "John Adams", as President. Fifth Congress of the United States, Second Session: AN ACT Respecting Quarantines and Health Laws, approved February 25, 1799; In addition to AN ACT for the Relief of sick and disabled Seamen, approved March 2, 1799, 3p, 8.25" x 13.25". Philadelphia, 1799. Typical folds, spine fold partially separated with some light dampstains along fold and margins. The first act, concerning quarantines, orders federal port officials to respect state health laws concerning the quarantine of ships arriving from foreign or domestic ports and makes provision for the storage of goods and wares aboard such ships. The act also provides for the relocation of federal offices and officials to a new location in the event of "a contagious or epidemical disease at the seat of government." The act also provides for the removal of federal offices and officials from ports where similar circumstances prevailed. The second act, approved by Adams about a week afterwards, expands the scope of a law to provide relief for sick and injured seamen by levying a 20 cent per month deduction of pay for all naval officers, seamen, and marines. Extremely Rare. An unusual issue combining Evans 36475 and 36472 on a single bifolium. Combination not sourced in Evans or Bristol. This may have been the manner in which the acts were originally issued, but were only found by Evans on separate sheets.

London, 1799. b/w plates, maps. 4to. c, 410, 12 (subscribers list) pp. The Duff was the first missionary vessel to sail into the unknown Pacific, and the missionaries made many important discoveries ancillary to their religious purposes. “The voyage of the Duff was undertaken for the purpose of establishing a mission in Tahiti, and a settlement of twenty-five persons was formed... They met with continual difficulties because of the civil wars, and were finally forced to flee to Australia... The voyagers made many important discoveries of Islands... The long ‘preliminary discourse’ was anonymously written by Samuel Greatheed, using the then-unpublished narrative of James Morrison, one of the pardoned Bounty mutineers.” This is the first, large paper, Gosnell edition.

        Trees. Poems by Eliot Porter, William Blake, Robert Frost, Ezra Pound and W. H. Auden

      [Fairview NC, 2012]. [Fairview NC. 2012]. Unique artist's book, hand lettered and drawn and painted on Twinrocker handmade paper, signed and dated by the artist, Annie Cicale, on the outside of the binding, under the easel flap. Page size: 14 x 5.5 inches with the book opening to 10 pages of graduated lengths: 6.75, 8.5, 10, 11, and 12.25 inches, page length determined by length of verse; 11pp. Bound by the artist, Annie Cicale, in brown and black patterned Cave paper with black morocco spine, morocco piece irregular edged to mimic bark of tree, with easel tab on rear cover that folds flat as well as extending to display book vertically, with custom-made grey cloth over boards slipcase. Annie Cicale has created a lovely book and book object with five poems concerning trees with images of trees on verso. The book opens to a view of ever-taller trees, all in black ink with washes with the poignant texts extolling the necessity of trees. Auden's poem, "A Culture Is No Better Than Its Woods" is from BUCOLICS II, WOODS. Ezra Pound's poem, "A Tree," is referenced with "I stood still..." the first two lines. The first verse of Robert Frost's poem, "Tree at my Window," follows. Ms. Cicale has selected William Blake's 1799 quotation, "The tree which moves some to tears of joy is in the eyes of others only a green thing which stands in the way" as the penultimate text. The largest page is a quotation from noted photographer, Eliot Porter, "It has been said that wildness is a luxury, a commodity that man will dispense with as his occupancy of the earth approaches saturation. If this happens he is finished. Wilderness must be preserved. It is a spiritual necessity." Texts are lettered vertically, seeming to be the roots of the tree pictured on the next page. Lettering styles vary to match the shape of the tree pictured. And, the tops of the succeeding pages are visible as tree tops from each page of text. A beautiful book.

        LAW OF THE UNITED STATES. BY AUTHORITY. FIFTH CONGRESS OF THE UNITED STATES...AN ACT, FURTHER TO SUSPEND THE COMMERCIAL INTERCOURSE BETWEEN THE UNITED STATES AND FRANCE, AND THE DEPENDENCIES THEREOF [caption title]

      [Philadelphia. 1799].. [Philadelphia. 1799].. [1]p. on a single folio sheet, text printed in three columns. Docketed in ink on the verso. Three horizontal folds. Some light edgewear, small separations at the edges of the folds, not affecting text. Very good. Rare congressional act extending the suspension of trade with France during the so-called "Quasi-War" of the late 1790s, and adding a provision allowing the U.S. Navy to inspect and seize American ships that are violating the embargo. This act was approved February 9, 1799, and extends the provisions of the law first approved June 13, 1798. It is signed in type at the conclusion by President Adams, Vice-President Jefferson, and Speaker of the House Jonathan Dayton. The Quasi-War was an undeclared conflict between the United States and France during the Adams administration in the late 1790s, manifested mostly in naval engagements between the two nations. The war was the outgrowth of deteriorating Franco- American relations, which had been weakened earlier in the decade by the "Genet Affair" and the "XYZ Affair," and it wreaked havoc on commerce between the two nations. One of the main weapons wielded by Adams was to ban American commerce from France and French dependencies, accomplished by the congressional act of 1798 and extended by the present law. The law forbids American ships from trading with France or with French dependencies, including in the West Indies, and goes on to bar French commerce and French ships from American ports. Significantly, this act goes beyond the provisions of the 1798 law by permitting United States navy vessels to inspect and potentially seize American vessels that have traded with France or with French dependencies. This broadside format is unusual for the printing of a law, and indicates that it was meant to be displayed in ports and customs officers for the attention of ships masters who may have been unaware of the embargo law or willfully violating it. ESTC locates only three copies, at Oxford, the British National Archives, and the American Antiquarian Society. Rare. EVANS 36522. ESTC W42364. OCLC 80514531.

        Histoire des mathematiques . . . Second edition, considerably augmented

      Henri Agasse 1799-1802, Paris - Montucla, Jean Etienne (1725-99). Histoire des mathématiques . . . Nouvelle edition, considérablement augmentée, et prolongée jusque vers l’Époque actuel. 4 vols., 4to. [4], viii, 739; [4], 717, [1]; viii, 832; [4], 688pp. 45 folding engraved plates, engraved portraits of Montucla and Lalande. Paris: Henri Agasse, 1799-1802. 255 x 193 mm. 19th century tree sheep, gilt spines with leather labels, a few scratches on covers, very minor edgewear. Minor occasional foxing, but overall a fine set, with all half-titles present. Bookplate of the Bibliotheca Lindesiana in all volumes. Second and most complete edition, considerably expanded from the first edition of 1758. Montucla’s Histoire, the first classical history of mathematics, was "a comprehensive and, relative to the state of contemporary scholarship, accurate description of the development of the subject in various countries. The account also included mechanics, astronomy, optics, and music, which were then considered subdivisions of mathematics" (Dictionary of Scientific Biography). The first edition covered mathematical history only to the end of the 17th century; Montucla had intended to add a third volume covering mathematics to the mid-18th century but was unable to do so at the time. In the 1790s Montucla began working on the second edition of his Histoire, revising and expanding the first two volumes and adding a third devoted to 18th-century mathematics. He died when this volume was in press, however, and the remainder of the second edition was completed (with the assistance of others) by his friend, the astronomer J. J. L. de Lalande (1732-1807). Volume three covers 18th century pure mathematics, optics and mechanics, while the fourth volume covers 18th century astronomy, mathematical geography and navigation. O’Connor, J. J., and E. F.

(2) Autograph letter signed, in French, to Nicolas Viton de Saint-Allais (1773-1842). 1 page plus integral address leaf. N.p., 19 May 1819. 207 x 175 mm. Light marginal soiling. Together 2 letters, enclosed in cloth portfolio stamped "P.V.H." in gilt on the front cover; accompanied by several printed items, including 2 engraved portraits of Lacépède, brief extracts from several of his printed works and 2 biographical notices. Very good. From French naturalist Lacépède, best known for his collaboration with Buffon on the continuation of the latter’s monumental Histoire naturelle, to which Lacépède contributed eight volumes including the five-volume Histoire naturelle des poissons (1798-1803). These volumes were issued by the French publisher Saugrain, to whom the first letter above is addressed. Saugrain had apparently wanted to feature Lacépède’s name in a prospectus for the Histoire naturelle; Lacépède responded by stating that although he was "as much touched as flattered by the esteem and affection you are pleased to show me," he was "far from believing" that his name "might add to the success of the edition of the Histoire naturelle that you are undertaking." He asked Saugrain that if the prospectuses had not yet been printed, "everything concerning me" should be removed "as useless and too little merited." In the second letter, written in the third person to genealogist Nicolas Viton de Saint-Allais, Lacépède informed his correspondent that he was returning "the article [Saint-Allais] was so kind as to send me and to which I made a short addition, because the Mémoires of [Philippe de] Commines were on my desk." He further promised to send a certified copy of a genealogy to the French city of Vienne, which he would deposit "with great pleasure" in Saint-Allais’s collection. Saint-Allais was the head of the Bureau Générale de la Noblesse de France. "Commines" refers to French historian and diplomat Philippe de Commines (1447-1511), whose Mémoires were published in 1524.

        The Infant Shakespeare. Attended by nature and the passions. [Engraving]

      London: Boydell, Shakespeare Gallery, 1799. London: Boydell, Shakespeare Gallery, 1799. Shakespeare, William. The infant Shakespeare. Attended by nature and the passions. [Engraving] after George Romney. Engraving by Benjamin Smith, published Sept. 29, 1799. Location of the original painting: Folger Shakespeare Library. London: Boydell, Shakespeare Gallery, 1799. Engraving on laid paper, nicely framed . (24" 19"; framed dimension 34" x 29"). In The Infant Shakespeare, nature is shown as a radiant illuminating presence, hovering above the infant. The passions pictured are love, hatred, and jealousy to the right; anger envy and fear to the left. Joy with her flute, sorry kneeling before the child are also pictured. Reference: Pape and Burwick Boydell Shakespare Gallery Cat I: 2 This engraving is part of a magnificent series of historical prints that illustrate the plays of Shakespeare. This is one of the two allegorical pictures that frame but not illustrate the plays. The other is "The infant Shakespeare nursed by tragedy and comedy" (catalogue II:48) The origin of these majestic engravings grew from the publisher Alderman John Boydell who, in 1786, decided to publish "a fine edition of Shakespeare" that might rival the elegant volumes which the French were then producing of their national authors. The Boydell edition of Shakespeare in nine magnificent, folio volumes was finally finished in 1805. These much larger engravings were printed in a separate suite of 100 plates to be appreciated as art objects for their beauty. They were available for purchase individually from 1795 and, after 1805, complete in two volumes. Athough the Boydell Shakespeare project ended in bankruptcy and liquidation, these engravings remain after 200 years a prize of print collectors.

Hübscher Rücken.. Ignaz Cornova (* 25. Juli 1740 in Prag ; 25. Juli 1822> ebenda), war ein böhmischer Priester mit italienischen Wurzeln, Jesuit, Historiker, Pädagoge, Dichter, Aufklärer und bedeutender Prager Freimaurer. Am 27. Oktober 1756 trat er dem Jesuitenorden bei und besuchte dessen Gymnasium in der Prager Altstadt, es folgten Studienaufenthalte von 1759 bis 1760 in Bresnitz und von 1760 bis 1764 in Olmütz, wo er Philosophie und Theologie studierte und sich der Forschung der alten und neuen Sprachen widmete. Seit 1762 lehrte er am Gymnasium des Jesuitenordens in Brünn, unterbrach seine Lehrtätigkeit von 1770 bis 1771 wegen eines Predigeramts, unterrichtete von 1771 bis 1773 als Gymnasialprofessor in Komotau und Klattau , anschließend bis 1784 am akademischen Gymnasium in Prag. Von 1784 bis 1795 hielt er Vorlesungen über allgemeine Geschichte an der Prager Karls-Universität. Nach 1795 war er nur als Forscher, Privatlehrer und Erzieher tätig, begann zu dichten und wurde Freimaurer. Bereits 1776 wurde er in der Prager Loge "Zu den drei gekrönten Säulen" aufgenommen. Cornova widmete sich vornehmlich der Geschichte. Er übersetzte Res publica Bojema ins Deutsche, welches er auch mit zahlreichen Vermerken ergänzte. Er verfasste eine Monografie über das Leben von Bohuslaus Lobkowicz von Hassenstein .Von den philosophischen Werken blieben seine handschriftlichen Vorträge über Methodologie der Geschichte an der Universität erhalten. Er war stark durch Voltaire beeinflusst, kannte aber auch schon Johann Gottfried Herder , von dem er seine Auffassung über die Rolle slawischer Nationen übernahm. Die geschichtlichen Gesetze sah er im Sinne der Aufklärung auf der einen Seite als Folge historischer Entwicklung, auf der anderen Seite schrieb er sie aber auch den natürlichen Gesetzmaßigkeiten zu. Er sah auch, dass das Wohl des Staates vom Wohl seiner Bürger und deren hohem moralischem Verständnis abhängig ist.(Quelle Wikipedia).; - Papier leicht gebräunt, durchgehend etwas fleckig, einige Seiten jedoch stärker.

      [An architectural design for a theatre backdrop signed "Tasca"] (lower left) pencil.Pen and black ink and grey wash, unframed 6 3/8 x 9 7/8 in. (16.3 x 25.1 cm). Most likely done for Monima e Mitridate. Dramma serio per musical with music by Nasolini, performed in Venice in 1799 (Sartori 15899). Another possibility is Il trionfo di Gedeon, a Dramma sacro per music done in 1798, also in Venice.Upper left is a half-dome building. Beneath center is a plaza with fountain ornamented with swans. Steps lead up to the fountain. To the right is a public building of four stories, probably the palace. Right center to the rear is a mosque in the background. The crescent moon, religious symbol of Islam, is depicted on several building tops. Palm trees indicate a desert setting. Of the almost 25 productions credited to Tasca as the scenografi, two seem most likely to provide the subject for this drawing (assuming the drawing was for an actual production). Most likely is Monima e Mitridate: Dramma serio per musical with music by Nasolini, performed in Venice in 1799 (Sartori, 15899). Another possibility is Il trionfo di Gedeon: A Dramma sacro per music done in 1798, also in Venice (Sartori, 22993). Luigi Tasca flourished at the end of the 18th century and the very beginning of the 19th. Benezit surmises he was born in Padua. He executed theatre designs in Perugia, Livorno, and Pergola. Sartori credited him with being a resident of Fiorenza and a member of Accademia Fiorentino. He designed the ornamental facade for the Teatro San Marco in Venice.

Halblederbände der Zeit.. Zweite gekürzte Ausgabe? Christian Gotthilf Salzmann (1744-1811) publizierte 1784-1793 ein sechsbändiges Werk "Reisen der Salzmannischen Zöglingen". Nach Aufenthalten in Rohrborn und Erfurt als Pfarrer tätig gründete er anfangs 80er-Jahre des 18. Jh. die "Erziehungsantstalt Schenpfenthal", wobei er vorher schon reichlich pädagogoische Erfahrungen sammeln konnte und mehrere Werke zu diesem Thema publizierte. "1783 legte Salzmann Hzg. Ernst II. von Sachsen-Gotha-Altenburg den Entwurf einer Erziehungsanstalt vor und erhielt für sein Vorhaben längerfristige Förderung. In seiner pädagogischen "Pflanzstätte" am naturnahen Standort Schnepfenthal bildete er Menschen heran, die zur Entwicklung und Humanisierung gesellschaftlichen Lebens beitragen sollten. Einige seiner Mitarbeiter leisteten methodisch-didaktische Pionierarbeit, z. B. Bernhard Heinrich Blasche (1766-1832) für den Werkunterricht und Johann Christoph Friedrich GutsMuths (1759-1839) für den Sport- und den Geographieunterricht, der in Schnepfenthal u. a. Karl Ritter (1779-1859) unterrichtete. Mit ihren Lehrbüchern inspirierten sie die schulische Arbeit weit über den dt. Sprachraum hinaus. Der Kupferstecher Johann Carl Ausfeld (1782-1851) und der Maler und Porträtist Carl Buddeus (1775-1864) brachten die bildnerische Erziehung auf hohes Niveau. Der Unterricht war curricular breit angelegt und wurde durch gärtnerische und handwerklich-technische Aktivitäten sowie durch Ämter für wirtschaftliche Aufgaben in Schule und Haus ergänzt, die lebenspraktische Kompetenzen vermitteln sollten" (NDB). - Papier etwas gebräunt und stockfleckig.

Louis-François Cassas was one of the best French printmakers of the eighteenth century. His Voyage Pittoresque de la Syrie, de la Phoenicie, de la Palestine, et de la Basse-Egypte is perhaps the finest eighteenth century illustrated book on the Middle East. Cassas accompanied Choiseul-Gouffier on his embassy to Istanbul in 1784 but remained there only a few weeks. From the end of 1784 to 1787 he travelled in the Levant, Syria and Egypt at Choiseul-Gouffier's expense, making more than 300 drawings. His drawings of Troad were engraved for volume II of Choiseul-Gouffier's 'Voyage Pittoresque'. His original drawings remained in family hands for many y ears, but were sold at auction in 1878. The drawings include studies of costumes, architectural pieces, monuments, views, scenes from daily life and animals. He was the greatest exponent of the Levant. This superb print is from the first edition, published in parts on large sheets. Engraved by Miger.

        MARMONTEL'S TALES, selected and abridged for the instruction and amusement of youth by Mrs Pilkington.

      London: Vernon and Hood 1799 - 12mo, (172x104mm), viii,208p. copper-engraved frontispiece by Rivers, with 26 wood-engravings in the text by Charlton Nesbitt and John Anderson, lightly browned throughout and with a small stain confined to the tail-corner of most leaves. Modern quarter linen, pastepaper boards by Victoria Hall in an Herrnhuter style. Rare, Estc locates only nine copies of this book and notes that 'the engravings are by J[ohn] or T[homas] Bewick.' Hugo (Bewick collector,136) states categorically that 'There cannot be a doubt that several of the cuts were by Thomas Bewick.' However, Nigel Tattersfield in his study of John Bewick notes that John Anderson, a one-time apprentice of Thomas Bewick, was 'Vernor and Hood's usual artist', and informs us that there is no record of this work in the Bewick day-books, we are further grateful to him for his advice that Nesbitt and Anderson were responsible for the decidedly Bewickesque wood engravings.
